As Above, So Below and Astrology Forecast September 23-29

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we enter the annual portal into Autumn here in the Northern Hemisphere.

 The Autumn Equinox is on Saturday September 22 at 9:54 PM EDT.  As always, that means that the Sun moves into Libra at that Equinox moment.  The Sun stays in Libra for 30 days.

Two days later, on September 24, the Moon catches up to the Sun from its opposite position.  So the Moon in Aries opposes the Sun in Libra to form a Full Moon at 10:52 PM EDT.

Autumn Equinox is a time when light and dark minutes are equal.  That means yin and yang, “male” and “female” are also equal.

Then right after that Autumn Equinox moment of equality- dark, yin, “female” energy starts growing in relationship to the dimming energies of light, yang, and “male”.

At Winter Solstice dark is at its zenith.  Then at Spring Equinox we have equality again, but with light, yang energies beginning to increase.

Autumn Equinox symbolizes a time of year when we begin to know that darker, colder days are coming.  It is a time when personal striving and ambition begin to feel less important than relationships and social matters.

On a deep level, mortality can be felt as more real as darkness begins to grow.  We seek companionship to help us through the night.

And Libra brings us the Goddess of Relationship- Venus, which is the “ruling” planet of Libra.

Libra finds relationship and relating as more important than individual needs for independence and alone-time.

Libra is the scale of balance, always sensitive to equality and fairness as a result.

Libra is the master of diplomacy and mediation, able to see both sides of an issue.  As such it can have a really difficult time making decisions. Its ability to balance contributes to its talent at finding symmetry, which aids in its talent to balance colors, which aids its talent at creating beauty.

At the Full Moon in Aries two days later on the 24th, the Sun in Libra seeks relationship and at its best is very into the “other” person.

But the Full Moon has the Moon in Aries, and Aries seeks independence, being true to self, and taking care of personal needs and desires.

So at this Full Moon in Libra/Aries, it may be very important to balance doing what one wants to do for oneself,  with doing what someone else wants or what is best for the relationship.

Venus rules Libra and Mars rules Aries, so peace or war, connection or conflict may be decided personally and globally around the time of the full moon.

Saturn is also in aspect to this Full Moon, making close square to both Sun in Libra and Moon in Aries.

So if peace or war- or Female way  or Male way- cannot be decided, there will be a hand of fate or time that comes into play to make the decision.

Look at the Kavanaugh/Ford congressional proceedings to be reflective of these planetary movements.

Also this week Pluto is slowing down in order to go from Retrograde to Direct on Sunday the 30th of September.

That means that especially toward the end of this week intensity increases, passions are stirred, power struggles are more likely, and energies for transformation are stronger.

We are solidly beyond Summer Eclipse Season now, yet we are still in waiting for events that are developing as a result of that Eclipse Season.  Watch Syria/Middle East, Korea, and China trade to come front and center this Autumn.

Saturn makes its last pass of the USA natal Venus and Jupiter this Autumn. Mars and Jupiter make an important conjunction and square to the USA natal Moon this Autumn too. Important shifts for America are happening.

Saturn made its first pass to the USA Venus and Jupiter in January/February when Winter Eclipse Season was happening. The stock market reached a new high before falling dramatically then.

And last week the market reached a new high, higher than that previous high last January.   Another Eclipse Season has passed, and now Saturn goes back to where it was back in January/February.

Chances for a dramatic market drop are great again this Autumn.

For your personal life, remember we have entered a New Chapter of our lives.

Most have not fully adapted to this New Chapter yet.  There is still a purging of the old stories, traumas, and energy patterns from the Old Chapter.  There is still a “not-knowing” of what this New Chapter is all about.

We are caught between worlds, so to speak, no longer a part of the past, but not yet fully connected to our new path.

So living in the moment is more important than ever, allowing the processes of nature, your higher self, and the Universe to play out.

This makes trust and faith especially important now.

And horrific past personal events can make having trust and faith very challenging.

Keep in mind that there is a “higher/deeper Source” that is always there in the best interest of your soul and spirit.

It is true that surrendering to that Source takes ultimate ego control away from you.  But ego control keeps you stuck when it is time to grow and change.

Trust that Source and watch your life gain wings to fly through this transition time in your life.

Allow the Sun to go down now at the Sunset time of Autumn Equinox this week. Surrender to Nature and allow your soul to go down and yin-ward with it.

All is in Divine order. It our fears that see differently. The Earth and Heavens are connected and working together.  It is our fears that see differently.

“As Above/So Below” is metaphysical truth and Astrology is its translator.

Till next week,

Leo

Autumn Equinox and Astrology Forecast September 16-22.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

2018 Summer Eclipse Season has ended, and late this week Summer itself will end.

As the curtain comes down on the summer of 2018, we find ourselves in a personal New Chapter of our lives.  

That New Chapter is much more than the ending and beginning of nature’s seasons.

It is truly about entering a new and important era of our personal lives.

And it is truly about entering a new and important era of our collective life, both our global and American lives.

Most important in this new era is that this new era has at its core  the values you believe in.

Then after you have put your heart values and mental principles as your guiding light in this New Chapter, you have automatically built the foundation for the New Chapter you are entering and building.

Have you totally accepted this new era of your life?  Do you recognize you are truly in a new era or chapter of your life?

I know everything is feeling different inside for many.  The usual connections inside each of us are shifting.  The old normal inside us is gone.

And of course our personal lives are the micro to the macro of our greater world and Universe.

And as the wheels of the Universe turn into new territory, so too are we personally turning into new territory.

And as the societies of America and the world change, as they are beginning to do rather drastically, each of our souls is also being called to make deep transformational change.

It is obvious that the United States is slowly leaving its soul, and forgetting about the lofty principles it was founded on.

So deep transformation into an Age of Aquarius requires each of us individually and all of us collectively to make sure we are living by these standards.

Our “better angels” can guide us forward through this new terrain now.

Our American lives are so in the middle of deep transformation.  And the culture wars in the United States are bringing out the worst in people, on both sides.

People will lie and cheat to make sure their chosen agenda will win. To them the end justifies the means.  Do you believe that?

Hitler believed that exterminating those who did not fit his paradigm for how the new human should be and look like was OK to do.

“Kill or be killed” is how our politicians  are thinking and acting now.  The bloody fight, over who the next Supreme Court Justice will be,  is way over the top.

We need to return to our deeper values and deeper sense of what is right and wrong now.

The picture is much bigger and deeper then judges or political parties or religions.

Yes we need to stand up for what we believe, but we do not need to demonize and crush those who believe differently.  Trust me, those people you are demonizing also demonize you.  That alone should tell us something important. They believe what you stand for is evil and wrong, as you believe about them and their values.

We are on the verge of total war between American cultures, and total war between countries too.  And demonizing is what governments tend to do before attacking. It was Saddam Hussein, then Gadafi,  then Kim Jong Un, and now Bashar Assad president of Syria. And it will keep going after others whose countries we want to bring into our vision of how a country or culture or person should be.

This is how religions often act too. Each one believes it has found “The Way”. and their god is the true god.

Respecting each other’s differences is so Age of Aquarius, and that attitude shows the best of being Aquarius.

Now Trump is on the verge of real action from people who want to get rid of him as president.

And of course he is not a great example of being American, human, or a man.

Nevertheless, our very deep problems in America will not be eliminated if Trump leaves office. The Pence administration might make the culture wars exacerbate even more.

Trump’s presence has brought these culture wars for the soul of America come out in the light for all to see.

But the war will still be alive until we the people realize that all these people, no matter what agenda they carry, are Americans, and even more importantly Humans.

The Middle East is really on the edge of great conflict now, so let us hope leaders will pull back from that edge.

This week we are in the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle that began at the Virgo New Moon on September 9.  So energies are waxing in the lunar cycle, allowing us to feel we are moving forward in its regard.

But the solar cycle is about to show us an important turning point in the year, a turning point that points us to more yin or dark energies.

That solar cycle take us to the Autumn Equinox, which begins the time of Sun in Libra.

Autumn Equinox is on Saturday September 22 at 9:54 PM EDT.

Light and dark, yin and yang, male and female are equal at the Autumn Equinox.  Yet right after that moment, darker, more yin and female energies begin to expand their presence.

Metaphorically Autumn Equinox is like a sunset time of day,  in between light and dark.

The Sun’s yearly voyage through Libra begins at the Autumn Equinox also.

Most aptly with the Autumn Equinox, Libra is the scales of balance, scales of justice too.

Libra is most drawn to relationship, the “best” ways of being social or being in a society.

It seeks all to be lovely and fair, and it can be a great mediator or diplomat.

Is is usually very accommodating of others, sometimes to a fault as it often loses its Self in the process.

Libra really cares about things being fair or just, and about issues working for everyone, not just one person.  Libra is quite able to make everything symmetrical and color coordinated and pretty too. It likes things to be pleasant and peaceful.

So as this coming week comes to an end at the Autumn Equinox, it is a time to begin to shift away from more self centered attitudes and ways of being.

Instead it is time to listen better to others, to think of social values, to be more peaceful and ready to negotiate or compromise.

Perhaps out in the world, in America, in the Middle East, and elsewhere, there will be attempts to work harder to make peace and harmony between people.

There could be some surprises or shocks coming early to mid week, as Mars in Aquarius squares Uranus late Tuesday.

That is meant to be some kind of wake up call that shows how to think and move “outside the box”.  That wake up call may tend to show new ways to solve old problems.

Mars/Uranus contacts also can show rebellious behavior, and radical action.  World events that shake things up and get us thinking differently than we are used to are more likely than usual.

Till next week

Leo

Mars Direct, Taking Action, and Astrology Forecast August 26- September 1

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 25, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Energy shift again this week, as there is a Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th, then Mars goes Direct on the 27th.

Last week Mercury went Direct after a rather difficult Retrograde time period that coincided with 2 of the Eclipses this Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

After Mercury goes Direct, mental fogs begin to lift as issues we were previously questioning begin to clear up.

And out in the world it happened almost in a textbook astrological fashion.

A few days after Mercury went Direct last week, the jury finally ended deliberation and found Trump’s campaign manager Manafort guilty on 8 felony counts ; his ex lawyer Cohen admitted guilt and implicated Trump; and Molly Tibbets who was lost for weeks was finally found dead in an Iowa cornfield and her killer was apprehended.

In your own life, did any issues clear up last week for you too?  If not this week it will likely happen soon, as in some cases it takes up to 10 days or so after Mercury is back Direct before clarity and direction are found. Mercury went Direct on the 18th/19th of August.

Adding to the feeling of direct motion this week is the fact that Mars goes Direct on the 27th.

Mars is desire, will, assertion, force, and action.  When Mars is Retrograde, deep in our souls we are deciding what we truly want and/or what action we will take or direction we choose to move toward.

After the 27th you will begin to know more clearly what you want.  Give it up to 10 days or so before you are entirely clear.  Taking action will begin to come more easily too, as will the courage to do what is needed or wanted.

In the greater world, people or countries that have held back in any way will begin to be more decisive and more ready to take action.

But the “corner will not be turned” out of the old chapter and into a new chapter until “hand of time” Saturn goes Direct on September 6.

Then 3 days later there is a New Moon in Virgo on the 9th.   The New Chapter is ‘”earthed” in reality after that.

But coming back to this week, Sunday the 26th is a Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces at 7:56 AM EDT.

This is usually a very gentle full moon. But a Venus square Pluto aspect that day will likely bring more intensity than usual. And of course a direction-changing forceful Mars will also be strong in our energy fields for a few days.

The Full Moon has the Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces.

Virgo is order and efficiency, simplicity and discernment, reality in the material world, and needs for purity and perfection on the physical plane of existence. It sees what is wrong or flawed and seeks to correct or fix it.

Pisces is other-worldly, dreamy and idealistic, sensitive and unconditional, flowing, feeling, and connected to the worlds of consciousness and the world of dreams, metaphors and symbols.

They both can be selfless and doing for others or a cause bigger than themselves.

So at this Full Moon in Pisces, put your ego away and surrender to the forces of nature and the Universe.

Find a balance between outer world reality (Virgo) and inner dimensions of consciousness (Pisces).  Do your best to combine body (Virgo) and soul (Pisces). Though many religions try to separate them, making the body an enemy and the soul heavenly, in actuality they belong together all the time: Soul giving energy, consciousness, and purpose to our sacred vessel bodies.

Venus square Pluto that same day could bring some relationship challenges, meant to help us transform old patterns that no longer work in the relationship.

Then on Monday the 27th, Mars goes Direct and time to begin to move forward.

Last week the Mueller investigation showed us it has some claws now, and Donald Trump is in trouble.

As the heat gets more turned up, he will likely try to distract through making other issues more important, so watch for world conflicts, especially with Syria and Iran.  China, and North Korea also bear watching.

In October/November Trump’s natal Mars in Leo is triggered by Jupiter in Scorpio and transiting Mars in Aquarius.  That is when he will be fighting for his life and perhaps turning up the heat on world conflicts too.

The economy could also be challenged this Autumn and Winter, as transiting Saturn opposes the USA natal Venus and Jupiter, signifying gravity affecting USA sense of security, well being, and positive feelings.

For Donald Trump 2019 and 2020 will be most challenging,as Pluto will oppose Trump’s natal Venus in Cancer and Saturn in Cancer.  Security, safety, and well being will be in conflict for him. This is when impeachment will likely be front and center for him.

It is obvious to most now, I believe, that the world as we have known it is leaving us.

All is happening for a reason, as we are moving out of an old Age and moving into a New Age of Aquarius.

Feelings of doom and gloom need to be replaced by a knowing that “we the people” are now responsible for rebuilding our country and world.

And the foundation for that world is formed with our higher values and principles. Many will be in desperation and survival to the extent that they will not care about these values.

But when one sees the bigger picture of world transformation, one can divorce oneself from desperate fear, hatred of enemies, and panic.

Trump is meant to be in this position in our world now.   And he will likely not go down as easily as Nixon did.  The comparisons between those eras and Presidents is remarkable, so similar.

The job was not finished back in the ’60s and ’70s.

Now the young people of this country can be mentored by the elders who went through the Nixon years, as long as those elders stay aware that the world is being left to future generations who must shape this new revolution and evolution with their signature, not ours.

Quit complaining about Trump and the people who follow him.  You are playing into his need for attention and drama and his narcissism.  We are adding to the division of cultures in our country and world. There is nothing to fight against. There is plenty to fight for.

We can concentrate on keeping our higher values and principles, being aligned with the Universe and our Souls, keeping spiritual and humanitarian perspectives, and fighting to be heard and fighting for what we believe in.

There is no going back to “normal” anymore.  We are in a New Era on the way to the Age of Aquarius. Let’s make the best of it!

Till next week,

Leo

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo and Astrology Forecast August 5-11

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 4, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We move this week into the last of three eclipses in Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

It is the last quarter of the Moon phase all week long until Saturday August 11 at 5:58 AM EDT.  At that time we experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo.

The Moon darkens more and more every day this week until after that New Moon in Leo.

That Leo Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 11 puts an end to a lunar cycle begun on July 12 at the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer opposite Pluto.

That New Moon in Cancer found “climax” on July 27 at the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius that was conjunct Mars and square Uranus. That lunar cycle ends on August 11 at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo.

And Retrograde Mars and Mercury Retrograde  have added more complication to a very intense time period.

I have gone through over 30 years of paying close attention to Eclipses, and this is one of the most powerful Eclipse Seasons I have experienced.

I have been witnessing people face some of their worst nightmares; experiencing emotions out of control; early traumas re-triggered;  difficult memories and people returning to them; hard decisions needing to be made. But also for some there has been rapid movement through their issues that led to big awakenings and breakthroughs.

And now, while Mercury and Mars continue being Retrograde, we move this week through ending this most challenging volatile lunar cycle before we experience renewal at the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo.

Time feels to be moving faster during this Eclipse Season, so we all need to take time to be alone in order to process our thoughts and feelings.  And this week the 4th quarter Moon, with Mercury and Mars Retrograde, demands we find inner time to connect with our inner home base in order to prepare ourselves for the fiery Leo jump start next Saturday the 11th.

Allow your deeper soul to come back to center (of course meditation and nature can be great aids for that).  Allow that deeper soul to connect better with source and Universe so you are more ready for the new beginnings at this Leo New Moon Solar Eclipse.

Remember that Solar Eclipses are always New Moons, but they are New Moons on steroids, so to speak.

And since we are experiencing a Leo New Moon Eclipse, we can expect this Solar Eclipse to affect our heart chakra, to want to open that chakra up some more.

Difficulties you run into around this Solar Eclipse may be because your heart has closed from old wounds that caused it to lose trust.

Now there is new energy and information that wants to come through you at this Solar Eclipse.  There is Love and Truth that needs your heart to be receptive.

This Eclipse also seeks to open your heart up so you can shine your light, so you can express your authenticity.

There may be a young child inside you that you have put on a time out.  He or she used to be more alive with spirit shining through.  Wounds, traumas, disappointments, and/or disillusions have tended to close its heart into not trusting.

Now you will have help from the cosmos into opening it up again.  Keep in mind that whoever was a part of the process of you closing your heart and not trusting must be let go inside your self.

It is you now who is closing that heart- not anyone else.  Work with the inner story that holds the key that keeps your heart locked up, the same key that can now unlock your heart and liberate you from the shackles of fear and hopelessness.

This last of the three eclipses of Eclipse Season 2018 will have some torque for moving you forward in your life in one area or another.

Keep in mind however that this New Moon Eclipse sits in a cocoon waiting for Mercury and Mars Retrograde to go forward again .

You will be able to get your life’s motor running with this eclipse, but the Retrograde planets may keep you waiting before the movement goes strongly forward with action or manifestation.

Your creative juices should be alive with this eclipse, and more so if you do not let your ego get in your heart’s way.  That is the Achilles Heel for Leo, its temptation to look too much into the mirror to grade how it is doing?

And remember that feeling you are worthless or no good also relates to your ego controlling you and your ability to shine your light creatively.

The Virgo New Moon this coming September 9, just two days after Saturn goes Direct, is a good marking point for the end of Eclipse Season and more grounded in reality new beginnings.

Out in greater America and the greater world, much is holding on by threads. Under the surface there is much instability and much shifting and changing.

It is the old establishment, which holds the old paradigm, that is breaking down.  There are now rather desperate attempts to keep it propped up, and as more of the new shows itself, more desperate controls and bullying will surface.

As the Trump administration faces more and more scrutiny and more attempts are made for his impeachment, he will likely take desperate measures to fight off these attempts or he will distract attention with events that will rally the citizens, like war.

The Middle East is truly on the edge now and chaos is growing around Israel and the Palestinians, Syria and Iran.

Keep in mind through all the challenging coming events in America and the world, that all the turmoil is related to the shifting tides out of an old paradigm and age and into a new paradigm and age.

And in America the split between cultures is on the verge of igniting into something worse than it already is.

So many families, friendships, and other relationships are in war mode with one another, with no real understanding or respect for one another. As I write this,  a rally in Portland Oregon is happening with far right and far left factions facing off.

Last year, also with a Solar Eclipse in Leo, a similar face off happened in Charlottesville Virginia.

Also the Trump doctrines are separating the United States from its traditionally closest allies, like Canada and Europe.   More separation than ever before is overtaking the United States in its global relationships, including trade wars with Europe and especially China.

Nationalism and Globalism are another facet of this separation between cultures. In a distorted dysfunctional way this is an attempt at finding Diversity Within Unity.

Nationalism is trying to find a country’s individuality without seeking unified connections.  Globalism sometimes looks like everyone giving up individuality for uniformed agreement.

Diversity within Unity is honoring one’s distinct individuality and way of life and at the same time knowing we are all one, all connected.

One should not have to sacrifice one’s authenticity in order to fit in.  But one need not sacrifice one’s needs for finding what unites us all despite our differences.

No pushing agendas this week or desperately needing quick answers or impulsive moves forward.

Early this week, Uranus goes from Direct to Retrograde. So the frequencies of Uranus (liberation, breaking out of boxes or “chains”, awakening, winds of change) will be strong in our energy fields.   

Also Venus leaves Virgo for Libra this week.   Venus in Libra puts emphasis on finding balanced connections between people and following social graces in one’s interactions with others.

All these shifts during the last quarter of the lunar cycle turn into the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11. This Eclipse will be square Jupiter in Scorpio, so this eclipse like the last two is powerful.

This brings a strong energy for moving forward with your heart leading the way. Please keep in mind that intensity will be strong and complete clarity because of the Retrogrades may not come easily.

Till next week

Leo

Navigating Eclipses and Retrogrades and Astrology Forecast July 29- August 5

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 28, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we passed through the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon last week, we entered the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12.

This has been for many people a very difficult last few weeks.  Besides the two eclipses, we have also experienced Mars and Mercury both going Retrograde.

This is a time of inner reflection, of dealing with inner demons and old patterns and stories that are needing to be addressed, resolved, and/or released.

It has been, and continues to be, a ripe time to revisit these old stories, and in the process to find breakthroughs to new ways of seeing those old patterns or stories.

And those breakthroughs can show us to positive transformation for the betterment of our souls and lives.

Nevertheless, being brought back to old stories can seduce us into making decisions or moves that are not appropriate to the current situation.

It is best, in most cases, to hold back from making big decisions or starting new ventures.  It is not the time to act, but instead a time to internally work through the issues.

Many have, through the intensity of these eclipses, experienced these big breakthroughs; but it is more than just eclipses in themselves that have been triggering these transformational times.

The strength of Pluto and Uranus within the last two eclipse formations has provided more power of transformation and awakenings.

So even through the intense difficulties many have experienced these last few week,  in the bigger picture it is all part of deep transformation and change necessary for our growth and evolution.

The Age of Aquarius is calling us all to transform our consciousness, beliefs, and ways in order to be aligned with this New Age.

The only “enemy” in this process is our fear. It is natural to have fear, but it is not good to give in to fear as our master.

Fear takes many forms, but at the core fear takes over when we no longer trust we live in a meaningful Universe that brings us situations that here for a reason.

Do we ultimately follow Love and Truth or Fear?

It is true that even the most spiritual of us have dark nights of the soul when we feel “spirit” has abandoned us or we have abandoned “spirit”.

But in time we have awakenings or “rebirths” that bring us back on our spiritual paths.

It is so easy now to fall victim to fear, as our world seems to be falling apart from our better values.

This falling apart, which will get more intense, is part of the process of transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

I know many of you have experienced a falling apart of your personal lives before, and know that was just part of the process of transformation into a life more aligned with who you really are and are growing into.

And our world and country are going through that now. The big split between cultures in America, which resembles the Civil War in essence, is part of this transformational process that will ultimately make us more whole in alignment with a New Age.

And ending the notion of being superior to other cultures or countries is part of that transformation, as there is no room for superpower countries in the Age of Aquarius..

Empires began at the beginning of the Age of Pisces, in the form of the Roman Empire.  Now for the Age of Aquarius, we are letting go of the world controlling Empires.

Diversity within Unity requires the world to transform into one of more equality between nations and cultures.

The USA Empire of its Military/Economic Complex is dissolving and will hopefully in the process come back to its better values and principles.

And it is thus easy to see how the Trump influence is actually helping the process of the Empire’s downfall. Yes there will still be mammoth attempts to keep the power going, and some of that will likely be quite oppressive to our liberties.

And during this process of American transformation, the impeachment of President Trump is intensifying and becoming more serious.  What Trump does to distract this process is of great concern.

But keep the faith that in the bigger picture all is aligned with the cycles of the Universe..

In the greater world the Middle East is on the verge of igniting into greater conflict.  Gaza was erupting last week, Syria was intensifying, and Iran is now squarely in the cross-hairs of USA and Israel sights.

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius fell right on Israel’s natal Moon in Leo.  Mars was in opposition to that Natal Moon. The signs point to that Lunar Eclipse as an important turning point for Israel.

And transformation of Israel, Palestine and the greater Middle East is important to the transformation of our world into the Age of Aquarius.

Many of the first known civilizations and world wide religions were birthed in the Middle East.  So it is understood why that area of the world is needing of transformation out of old paradigms that run much of the world. The way Israel oppresses the Palestinians is so common to the old age.  And of course Israel was often at the other end of these abuses of power.

As we stated earlier, we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12. And Mars and Mercury are still retrograde.

Now we await the third and last eclipse of Summer Eclipse Season 2018:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11.

Though at that time Mercury will still be retrograde until August 18/19 and Mars will still be retrograde until August 27, there still will be much push for new beginnings at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in fiery Leo.

The big dominating egos on the world stage will be emerging.  Matches will tend to be lit by them, creating world conflict.

In our personal lives however, it is more likely that this Leo Solar Eclipse will ignite creative passions and open hearts.

It will signify a time of new starts and action taken in this New Chapter of your life.

Of course the actual actions may wait in many instances until Mercury and Mars have settled into their Direct positions.

So there is still much time now to go within your psyche and soul, to find out what you really want (Mars) and what you really think (Mercury).

And that Mars in Retrograde will be triggered this week as it squares Uranus, which is slowing down to go Direct next week.  That means there may be a turning point in your quest to know what you want and where you want to go.  But do your best not to run with it, as Mars will still be Retrograde.

Keep in mind during all the intensity and sometime confusion this Eclipse Season, that your soul is searching for its heart’s desires and your mind’s right thinking to help lead the way forward for your life.

That is being worked out now, sometimes unbeknownst to you at a deep level.  But  know that it is and patiently wait till those planets go Direct and the Eclipse Season ends.

After that much will settle in, and you will be in a better position to know what you truly want ( aligned with your higher self) and where you are going.

Till next week,

Leo

Opening Pandora’s Box and Astrology Forecast July 15-21

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 14, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are still in the throes of the powerful Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer opposite Pluto.   It has brought up much from the inner realms of feelings, emotions, fears, and old stories ready to be released.

The Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus on April 15 was the wake-up call for entry into a New Chapter of personal and collective life for the human family on Planet Earth.

A portal opened for new energies to flood into our consciousness and lives.

And now with the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer, we are moving further forward into this New Chapter; yet now we are being made more aware of what we need to release in order to truly move further forward.

Family issues have become more important to address now.   Who is truly your family? Soul families are also a reality, and it is growingly important to find and connect with members of our soul family.

And of course old family stories, wounds, and traumas are being pushed up to the surface of our consciousness so we can either resolve, heal, or release and let go of them.

Powerful emotions have been opened up at this Solar Eclipse in Cancer, making us more able to work with them, understand them, and to transform them into something that works for us- not against us.

Transformation, which Pluto is helping us with now, requires a death of old stories and beliefs, a death of an old version of who we were, and the birthing of a new version of who we are truly growing into now.

This process is often very painful, as we must feel again that which has caused us pain in the past. Therefore it is important to trace what you are going through now to earlier times of your life when you felt similarly.

If someone has now abandoned, rejected, or betrayed you, go back to when you felt this way before.

If you are currently feeling horrible about yourself now, go back to the earliest time you can remember when you felt this bad about yourself.  What events back then triggered your negative feelings about yourself?  What has triggered that now?

As you go back to remember and to associate what happened then to what is happening now, get in touch with whatever “story” you have been carrying with you as a result of these hurts or traumas.

Have you told your self you are unlovable?  Have you told yourself you never can do anything right?  Have you told yourself there is something wrong with you that people always find out about you? Have you told yourself all men are bad or irresponsible, etc.? Or all women are bad, etc?

Whatever the story,  learn how your can release it, as it is not true.  It was developed to explain bad situations that happened to you.  But now you are able to see the bigger picture, see what happened with more insight.  And now you can release the old beliefs and stories you have been carrying for so long.

As this Eclipse Season continues, with a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius on July 27; and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11, powers of transformation will continue to be strong.

That means old ways are breaking down, and new breakthroughs and awakenings will appear.

In the greater world, the old paradigm appears stronger than it is really is.  Trump represents to many a keeping of an old world and its ways alive and sometimes that seems so powerful.

The new ways, however, have gotten so much stronger over the last several years, with worldwide connections with those who are different from us; inclusive attitudes toward those who were previously considered outcasts likes LGBTQ and people of color; holistic approaches to health and happiness; new spiritual ways of seeing beyond the old limits; an understanding that all is connected in a Universe governed by love and truth; and a knowing that we live in a meaningful world, not one of random chance and survival of the fittest mentality.

We must each keep our eye on the true direction of evolution and transformation of consciousness into an Age of Aquarius.

It is most important to keep from being controlled and defeated by your fears now.  There are a large group of souls who are feeling powerless in the face of the world and its leaders now. This attitude gives away our power.

Your destiny is between you and the Universe, not you and Trump or Republicans.  If you demonize them you give them more power and yourself less.   They will come and go just as did Nixon or even Hitler. I am not comparing, just showing how everything passes. and is not all powerful as it seems.

I know we are in the transition between ages, and that this New Chapter of the transition period is a most difficult one.  Much is ready to break down soon, and that break down will open up Pandora’s box of ugly emotions and actions.

Find your connection with the Universe and with your Soul Self now. Those connections will show you all connections and show you what you need to do and the way you need to go now.

So much is changing for all of us, and we are being challenged to keep on our soul’s path and to make changes that are necessary in order to stay on that path- whether that means changing homes, jobs, relationships, etc. Or for some it means giving up ideas of changing homes or relationship and instead settling into what you now have.

It is important now to know what is home and who is your true family.  At this Cancer Eclipse, we are pointed to knowing these connections to home and “family”.

It will give us a foundation and place of nurturance needed to hold our growth, evolution, and movement forward now.

In the greater world the American Culture War is getting more intense. We each need to do our best to understand where people who see different than us are coming from. Again do not demonize.  Their fears and needs for self preservation are likely driving their choices.

The Middle East is on the verge of being lit up with conflict.  Iran versus Israel is at the root of this potential conflict. And both of their country’s charts are triggered heavily by the next two eclipses. Syria, Gaza, Iraq, Russia, USA, and Lebanon are likely participants in the conflict.

This will likely cause many world event dominoes to fall as a result.

Keep in mind that we are living in a world and national system that is so toxic and dysfunctional, and need not long continue.  Yet those who are its “guardians” will fight tooth and nail to perpetuate its existence.

And as much is released from all the chaos, the path to a new age gets more clear and open.

We each need to find our place in this transition between ages, and it is necessary to keep the faith and keep up our spiritual practices.

I will have another video made in early August

Till next week,

Leo

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer and Astrology Forecast July 8-14

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 7, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Powerful and gusty winds are gathering now, so to speak. We are getting ourselves ready for the upcoming stormy eclipses.  There are 3 of them this summer .

The first one is this week on Thursday July 12 at 10:48 PM EDT.   It is a partial Lunar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer.  At the same time, Guardian of the Underworld Pluto will be making an almost exact opposition to that eclipsed New Moon.  The New Moon is at 20+ degrees of Cancer, while Pluto will be at 20+ degrees of Capricorn that day: a potential perfect storm.

The sign Cancer is an archetypal Mother, of the Divine Feminine,   It can be very nurturing and protective, with desire to take care of others.  It must, however, make sure not to hover over with over-protectiveness.

By contrast Pluto in Capricorn is a powerful force penetrating deeply into the core of something or someone, and making things passionate and Real. It must make sure to not be “too real” or destructive. But it does need to be destructive enough to put to rest a dying Chapter of life; and that makes room for a Phoenix to rise up with new life.

So this Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer this week is like a strongly protected  cocoon or womb. And Pluto in Capricorn is like a ruthless energy that wants to destroy the protective shell that has held back spirit, life and passion.

It is soon time to begin the process of leaving the Garden of protection, to cut the umbilic cord, to  rise up with the dawning.

Pluto sitting  opposite this Solar Eclipse in Cancer will provide a reality check for our individual lives, our families, and certainly the United States.

That which is outliving its intended life span,  whether that is a soul, an object, and most importantly a passing chapter of one’s life, will be challenged to let go and allow the death which precedes the birth.

If a couple has finished raising their child, who is now ready to embark on their life journey, they now are in a transition between two Chapters of their lives.

And so it is best if they look to see if there is a new “contract” to create a continued life together- or not.

In the greater world, we are experiencing a death of the old America, contrary to the MAGA culture that believes we will return to a time that has passed us by quite naturally.

That death is not going to be any easy one, as some of  the “guardians” of the old world will lie, cheat, and steal in order to keep the old country and world paradigm alive and with continued privilege.

No matter how we view the people from the MAGA world, we need to listen, not dismiss and feel hatred for.

We do not need to build a world that will then abuse power the same way. it has been.  White men, corporate ways, etc. are not the enemy.

The “enemy” is the part inside each of us that unfairly judges others, who are different than us,  and seeks to make some people better or worse than others.

So now, early this week we are in the waning part of the lunar cycle. It is a time to let go of what we need to let go.

Last quarter Moons, especially when close to the New Moon, are perfect times to release and let go.  What are you ready to shed in your life, what has outlived its purpose?

While still in the last quarter Moon phase, Jupiter changes from Retrograde to Direct Tuesday July 10.

You should get an energetic boost from this, even before the Solar Eclipse New Moon on the 12th.

Jupiter in Scorpio tends to expand into more passion and intensity, igniting one’s deeper soul and instincts. Just be careful not to set yourself up for any abuses again or to be abusive yourself.

Scorpio is power, and Jupiter in Scorpio can certainly help one to be more empowered and passionately assertive.

That Jupiter movement to Direct will expand Jupiter’s influence, yet the main course is still the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer.

Be careful to make boundaries around your emotions, not to lose your center and integrity.

The culture wars have been heating up, and will certainly boil over during Eclipse Season.

When you look at the people in leadership roles in our country and world it looks pretty bad.

I know it feels frightening sometimes to contemplate the old world and its economy crashing and burning. Would you choose instead keeping this world Trump wants to build?

What if crash and burn is the only way we can rid ourselves of selfish ego driven leaders and soul dead institutions and people, and can transform our human condition, our environment, and our way of treating one another, would you want it that way?

We are looking potentially at a great amount of chaos if all falls down. And if it doesn’t, the tyrant loving president of the USA may build a walled-in America that would be really difficult to transform. And it would become a military/corporate world even worse than the current military/corporate world.

We are at a major American and world crossroads.  One way or another we are on the precipice of major American and world transformation.

Israel, Palestine, North Korea, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Syria are lands that are in  danger and in flux. So much is coming to a head now in these places.

The economy, with over priced bubble homes, poor health care programs, school debt that is really depressing for many,  and rampant greed, needs huge change.

And much will shake up during Summer Eclipse Season.

Keep up the meditation so you can stay connected and centered during this Eclipse Season.

Have you noticed how veils are being lifted in consciousness,  and how visitors, apparently from other dimensions, are sneaking into meditation more and more?

We are not merely witnessing the Fall of the Empire.  We can also open our hearts and minds to other realities, realities aligned with the Age of Aquarius we are moving into together.

If we do not let fear, hatred, cynicism, and politics keep us down, we allow ourselves to open doors and windows into new consciousness and new possibilities.

Be discerning who you spend your time with. Do they really see you and appreciate you?  Do they suck your life spirit like a vampire?  Do they constantly pull on you to give them what they want from you?  Do they make fun of your spirituality?

It is important we each protect ourselves from toxic energy.

Take the ride of this Summer Eclipse Season 2018.  Keep yourself centered inside and open to what your soul and the Universe wants to show you.

Till next week,

Leo
