Relationship Breakthroughs and Astrology Forecast October 15-21

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 14, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Early this week we remain in the last quarter of the lunar cycle, a cycle that began at the Virgo New Moon of September 19/20.

Then on Thursday October 19 at 3:12 PM EDT a new lunar cycle begins at the New Moon in Libra.

So most of the week we will be coming down and collecting ourselves getting ready for the New Moon on the 19th.

Usually there is less energy for us to use during the end of lunar cycles.  Symbolic of that fact is that the Moon disappears from sight and it is totally dark a day or so before the New Moon and also at the New Moon.

Though energy can be less then and feeling down more likely, the dark Moon time is really good for meditation, prayers, positive visualizations, and making positive intentions.

The Moon begins to show a sliver- usually the Night after the day of the New Moon. That is the real beginning of a lunar cycle. That is the time to move forward with action and beginnings.

Since Libra is the sign of the New Moon, new starts for relationships are at the top of the list of priorities.  Art projects, decorating, peace efforts, and mediation also are aligned for the New Moon in Libra.  Issues of justice and fairness are also potentially stoked for this new lunar cycle.

But relationships are the number one issue for this round of Libra.  And Venus has also come into Libra recently to help with relationship issues.

This Libra New Moon and the lunar cycle it starts are more complicated and certainly more energized than usual.

Uranus in Aries will be almost exactly opposite this Libra New Moon.  The closer an aspect is makes it increasingly more powerful and important.

Uranus being in the signature of this New Moon and opposite its position, creates an electric wave of importance.

Uranus is a planet of Awakening, of seeing and moving outside boxes of being stuck.  It liberates.   It breaks things open, and puts one into new vistas of thought and experience.

So relationships will tend to break out of old patterns around this New Moon in Libra. Anything stuck in the status quo of old ways will have opportunity for breakthroughs into new energies, patterns and ways.

Since Uranus will be in self empowered Aries it may challenge the old glue that has tried to hold the relationship together.  Often those old patterns use co-dependence as the glue of togetherness.

Now one or both members of the relationship are stating a need for greater independence and individuality.  Remember all relationships, when healthy, balance individuality and independence (Aries) with togetherness and relationship (Libra).

Now it is time for certain relationship to break out of old patterns of old ways and begin to learn new ways of being.

Keep in mind that this theme continues for the rest of this lunar cycle.

If you have been disempowered previously in any relationship or felt you needed more independence, now the winds of the Universe will be at your back for change.

Also remember that Eclipse Season was not that long ago, and the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo signifies great new beginnings, new beginnings that vibrate with change for months to come.

In the greater world, Eclipse Season brought us most powerful natural disasters, disasters that express the rage of Mother Nature.  Those powerful natural events have continued beyond the bounds of Eclipse Season.

Culture wars that include a great deal of discrimination  and abuse of power were also triggered during this last Eclipse Season in Charlottesville Virginia.  Issues were sparked then and will continue to be heated going forward. Recent issues of power abuses toward women are part of the process.  We are cleansing our world of old patterns of abuse and discrimination.

And the heated confrontation between North Korea and the USA was also triggered during Eclipse Season, and that ugly conflict will be continued.

This New Moon with Uranus in Aries will be another big turning point for the North Korea issue, and that relationship will likely break out into something new and dangerous.

Greater conflict is likely soon, especially so because along with the New Moon/Uranus event, Jupiter in Scorpio will be close to exact conjunction with North Korea’s Mars in Scorpio over the next week or two.

When you add the Trump action of changing the Obama deal with Iran, dominoes may fall rapidly in response to what happens with North Korea. And Syria will be another domino.

Jupiter in Scorpio potentially brings out more primal energies in each of us, so it is wise to stay alert to that knowing.  People can be more short fused, and intense arguments can be brought on. Of course sometimes that creates a catharsis and clears the air, which brings positive transformation.

Also secrets are more apt to come out with Jupiter in Scorpio.  October 26, when the Sun has joined Jupiter in Scorpio, is the deadline for previously locked up files regarding the Kennedy assassination to be opened.

In 1992 it was determined that those files would be opening in 25 years and now only Trump can stop that opening.

Other previously held secrets may open up also, in the world and in personal lives.

Please remember that all the intense events that began during Eclipse Season, including the natural disasters, are for the purpose of immense purging in order to open the portals for the energies of consciousness aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

It is best to focus now on the new beginnings brought forward with the New Moon in Libra with Uranus in Aries.

Your relationships can now break away from old stories, even past relationship memories can awaken to new ways of being viewed.  Maybe that old relationship was meant to end, no matter who initiated the breakup.  Maybe no one needs to identify with being a victim, and learned lessons can bring new and better relationships.

In the new consciousness, win/win is the way of dealing with relationship issues.  What is in the interests of both people from a Higher Self perspective?   If you open to that channel of perspective, you will receive the answers that serve you both.

We the people will need to initiate the changes that are needed now. Especially since the election of Trump, we are motivated to change this world and transform it into one for the Age of Aquarius.  Challenging the Trump administration is necessary to bring about the positive changes.

In the next Eclipse Season in late January-February 2018 we will have the winds of the Universe at our back to begin the process of throwing OUT the modern Trump version of Roman emperors like Nero and Caligula.

As we release the old in our consciousness, through the intensity of Scorpio energies, we can open to a rebirth of our consciousness and lives.  And in the outer world, the coming intense events will also open us to new horizons of consciousness and living- all in service to the Age of Aquarius.

Keep the Faith.

Till next week,

Leo

The Brief Pause and Astrology Forecast October 1-7

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 30, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Now that Eclipse Season is over, there is a quite noticeable decrease in intensity, both in personal lives and in world affairs.  The storm has passed. 

And quite a storm it was, literally and figuratively.  There were some actual powerful hurricanes and earthquakes; war drums beating loudly in Korea; and culture wars getting stronger as can be seen in Charlottesville and surrounding the Kapernick protests.

These issues have not gone away, but are resting relatively peacefully as we go through civilized and relational Sun in Libra time of year

We are gathering ourselves, picking up the pieces, figuring out where we are at in our lives and consciousness,  and looking for clarity and direction.

Clarity and direction are still allusive for many, even after the Eclipse Season and Mercury going back Direct again.

For example- in the greater world,  even though the North Korea issue has lost some of the steam of  potential war; it is not clear what will happen next.

Before long there will be changing tides into more intensity, beginning on October 10 when Jupiter leaves balanced and peaceful Libra and enters passionate and intense Scorpio. Jupiter will stay in Scorpio for about a year.

When the Sun also goes into Scorpio on October 22/23, intensity will grow even more.

Libra is relational and always intends to listen to others, abide by civilized societal rules, and find balance between differing opinions and needs.

It is relational on a mostly mental or heart level, and seeks the pleasant and the “good”.

Scorpio seeks emotional connection in a passionate way, not caring much for how issues are nicely decorated. It wants to get to the core of those issues. And it wants to know someone fully, the good, the bad, and the ugly. It wants what is “real”.

So as we move from Libra energies to Scorpio ones, that which has been buried for the sake of peace, will tend to rear its ugly head again.

Anything that  has not been fully resolved or even fully expressed yet, will tend to erupt again.

But for now we can lean peacefully into the Libra pleasant zone, and find some sanity and balance.  Two planets still in Virgo,  Venus and Mars, seek order and analytical logic. And great intensity is anathema to them, as it is to Libra

There is not much in the chaotic zones this week, so enjoy the tempering of the energies and use them to realign yourself now.

The transformational energies were enormous in August and September, especially surrounding the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo toward the end of August.

You have likely released much of what was ready to be let go, and let in the light of new energies that are more resonant with your own new paradigm and new chapter for your life.

Have you taken the leap forward like the Fool card in Tarot? Do you trust being in the new zone that has been opening up for you?

Likely there is more to come, and the transformational process has more room to grow.

In the greater world,  the changes have been swirling through us in an accelerated manner.

Trump’s presidential world is foreign to most of us, as no previous president has been so non presidential, nor so narcissistic or so vengeful around often petty concerns.

Look at this world. How can transformation be mostly over? It is not.  There is so much that needs to be broken down and released.  Our collective world has such crazy priorities, such often hypocritical ways; and such abusive treatment of those judged to be different, those who are considered “less than”, and those who have been designated enemies.

Many of our institutions reflect those diseased ways of being.  We will never be more ready for great transformation of our world.

And since so much of our world is dominated by the Military/Industrial Complex that President Eisenhower warned us about, the institutions that keep that dominance must be vastly transformed or ended.

The North Korea issue will not go away. Syria and the Middle East are on only a brief break. And our world economy and health system are needing to dramatically transform into ones that are more fair for all of the humans on this Earth.

And the breakdowns of the old order and paradigm are a large part of the process to get to that new age.

And with Donald Trump as president, it is assured that the road to that new age will be quite rocky and difficult.

Yet in our personal lives we can more gracefully transform our consciousness and life if we are awake to the process and what needs to change.

Putting our head in the sand will make the process more stormy, and holding on for dear life to what needs to be let go will bring us more pain.

Change can be stressful and not very comfortable,  but you must admit that a flat line existence is boring and tends to kill our soul, spirit, and heart.

This week will be relatively tame, except around the Aries Full Moon on Thursday October 5.  The few days surrounding that lunation should be more intensified, especially concerning relationships.

With the Full Moon giving us Sun in Libra and Moon in Aries, we will be balancing our needs with needs of others, and balancing being civilized and peaceful versus being more straightforward, direct and even combative.

In the greater world,  determining war (Aries) or peace (Libra) could be in discussions.

And Pluto is square to that Full Moon alignment, adding much more intensity and passion to our relationship issues.  And Pluto is the wild card this week that could bring us back to some storminess and out of the peacefulness this week.  It also potentially adds more energies for deep transformation, often as a breakthrough during difficult interactions with others.

This Aries Full Moon will be at 2:40 PM EDT. 

Mars conjunct Venus in Virgo will happen that same day, adding a need to fix things and people, and possibly being obsessive in seeking exact order or perfection to things.

Do your best to stay out of ugly power struggles around this Full Moon, and instead search for win/win resolutions with others.

Till next week,

Leo

End of Eclipse Season, Autumn Equinox, and Astrology Forecast September 17-23

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we come to the end of Eclipse Season, which has been a most powerful time of shifting life tides,  taking us faster forward through a New Life Chapter that is closer than ever to the Age of Aquarius.

Now that the Eclipse Season, which included Mercury Retrograde, is ending at the New Moon in Virgo this week; we are able to gain some perspective and insight into what happened and what may come next.

Many of us have been taken to important turning points in our lives, perhaps even requiring crossroads decisions.

For awhile now we may need to get our bearings after the intensity of the passing Eclipse Season, and the Virgo energies now will help us to analyze what has happened, to bring order to our lives, and to simplify what has been a rather complicated time period.

This is not a time to push forward, instead it is a time to fix up, repair, heal, clean up, and figure out.

That is because there is a New Moon in Virgo on September 19/20- actually at 1:30 AM EDT on the 20th. Mercury and Mars will already be in Virgo at that time, and Venus will have just arrived there too.

Virgo energy gives us greater ability to discern and be discriminating, to skeptically question, to be critical- hopefully in a constructive way.

So you will have the ability to take apart and view more closely the details of what is happening in your life.  Be careful, however, not to let healthy questioning turn into negativity, unfair criticism, and cynicism.  And be careful not to take yourself apart critically.

Virgo can be very perfectionistic and has a tendency to see life’s glass as half empty not half full.

In examining the world after the important events of Eclipse Season, we will have the ability to examine and find order, but must be careful not to be too negative, worrying, or fearful in the process.

We had extreme weather conditions and natural disasters, with an 8.1 Earthquake in Mexico, two very powerful hurricanes to hit the USA, as well as western USA wildfires that were more out of control than usual.

Culture wars picked up speed, starting in Charlottesville with KKK and neo Nazis instigating hatreds and violence.

The Middle East showed signs of change as Islamic State was wiped out of many locales it controlled, though it did perpetrate terrorist attacks at the same time. Syria is apparently more settled now, but  at the same time Israel and Iran are showing themselves closer to confrontation, with Hezbollah and Russia involved also.

But most ominously North Korea has taken center stage in our world with missile and bomb tests that have shaken the USA and much of the world.

Now it has become time to make decision on what can be done in that situation.

Of course many of us know weapons of mass destruction need to be mass destructed for the health of our planet.

But given the current situation, the wise option is to sit down with them, recognize their nuclear power,  and work out a solution similar to what was done with Russia during the Cold War.

The other option, a military one, will almost for sure touch off a World War, and begin to destroy the current economy.

There is no more sitting on the fence of sanction implementations for North Korea.

We are moving into a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius. In that Age there is equality among cultures, countries, and ways of living.   There is a multipolar power sharing and resource sharing world building.

Already China and Russia are determined to changing the current economy from one led by the American dollar and America.

Obama’s presidency began the process of leveling the world’s playing field and honoring the differences in people. He did as much as he could do considering the power of the Deep State’s Military Industrial Complex.

Now Trump challenges that global way of connecting us all.  He represents America keeping power over the world as a Superpower.

On a deeper level those days are done.  Now let’s hope the awakening to that fact happens without war and complete economic downfall.

We must collectively choose from our Higher Selves, not our ego selves, or as Sun in Aquarius Abraham Lincoln suggested- let our Better Angels lead the way.

Is our country and world sufficiently awakened to our Higher Self, the one aligned with the Age of Aquarius?

If not, and we will know soon, we will face our collective shadows in war and severe economic downturn.

As we each align with the energies of the Universe and our Higher Selves now, we need to then surrender our ego control and let this all play out as it will.

We can do our part by being in our Higher Self’s connection with Love and Truth.  And we can spread that wonderful energy to others we connect with.

And of course our letting go of the old programming from family and society,  helps everyone else to do so also- as a new trail is being blazed for everyone who awakens.

We also choose in this new consciousness to find balance and equality of male and female, yin and yang, dark and light, as true Nature requires.

 And that balance can be found at the Autumn Equinox on September 22 at 4:02 PM.

Autumn Equinox as always begins Sun in Libra time of year.

Autumn Equinox brings a perfect balance of light and dark minutes of the day, which is a signal for all opposites to join in equal balance.

After the moment of perfect balance, dark minutes of the day begin to increase, finding their optimum at Winter Solstice.

Libra time of year is a time to enjoy beauty and balance, symmetry and equality.  There is more emphasis on relationships and love.

Libra is also about the scales of justice, and knowing what is fair and just.  Libra can see both sides of an issue, which makes them great mediators but often as a result indecisive.

Libra is a sign of social graces, which can often preclude passion and primal desires and natural instincts.

Jupiter has been in Libra this past year, so we have been expanding our desires to make relationship, and to find equal balance and moderation in our consciousness and ways of living.

In a few weeks, however, expansive Jupiter will shift into Scorpio for a year.  Starting on October 10, we thus will begin to expand our desire nature, our sexual needs, and most importantly find what gives us passion in our life.

Scorpio also, in the process of reactivating our more primal instincts, may take out of slumber our repressed or suppressed lower emotions.

Rage, jealousy, envy, contempt, and just general meanness are the worst potential expressions of Scorpio.

Suppressed or repressed earlier traumatic events and wounding will tend to come to the surface where we can from our souls,  relive and at the same time release some of those old traumas.

As Jupiter goes into Scorpio, we will get more clear instinctually on what direction to take.  We will know from our passions what we want to do next.

In the world, events are more likely to be ignited after Jupiter goes into Scorpio, events that can be referred back to the Eclipse season we just passed through.

But for now gather yourself, investigate what needs to be investigated, fix, heal, repair, simplify and find order (Virgo).  And then also find the right balance, be more kind, focus on relationships and relating, look for love and beauty in everything (Libra).

Till next week,

Leo

BTW- the world will not be ending or destroyed on September 23 as many are proclaiming.  How many times have we heard that the world is ending?

I will be leading a class on Transforming Consciousness into the Golden Age of Aquarius on September 23 at noon- 6 PM Pacific Coast Time in Sedona Arizona.  Astrology and your own chart will be a big part of the process.

This Autumn I will present that class as a webinar webinar for people most anywhere on the Earth. Contact me at soulus@aol.com for more info and to sign up. The webinar will not be on September 23 as I previously stated. It will be in late October or early November. I will need your birth date, birth time, and birth place for registration.

Taking it to the Edge and Astrology Forecast September 10-16

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 9, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are coming up to the beginning of the 4th quarter phase of the lunar cycle on Wednesday this week.

That will be the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21.

That 4th and last quarter ends at the New Moon in Virgo on September 20, to be closely followed on September 22 by the Autumn Equinox.

This effectively ends Eclipse Season.  So the enormous intensity brought on by this Eclipse Season begins to subside.

Now that does not mean that important events in the world will end at that point.  In fact important events that have reference to what happened during Eclipse Season will likely unfold within 6 months from when Eclipse Season ends.

And it has been a most powerful Eclipse Season, with both natural and man made events erupting in the world, centered in large part in America.

North Korea and the United States have been frighteningly showing the world the potential danger of war and even nuclear war.

The natural disasters have been exceedingly dangerous ones.  Since the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21 we have experienced a devastating hurricane, Hurricane Harvey  moving through much of Texas.

There also is an equally large hurricane about to engulf Florida, Hurricane Irma.  And 2 more hurricanes have been developing in the Atlantic Ocean, Jose and Katrina.

These are said to be some of the biggest hurricanes in many years.

And in Mexico, an especially powerful 8.1 earthquake struck last week. This is one of the largest earthquakes in many years.

So the predicted natural disasters occurred as did the war threats and culture war threats during Eclipse Season.

Personal lives have been in uproar also, as many people have been coming to crossroads moments in their lives, or at least they are experiencing important turning point events or decisions that need to be made.

We have undoubtedly entered a most difficult transition time between one chapter of our lives to a whole New Chapter of our lives.

The old “contracts” or agreements we have made with others or with ourselves (spoken or unspoken) have expired, and we are deciding at a deep soul level if there is a new agreement to be made, a new birth into this New Chapter.

I am seeing this most especially in important relationships or marriages. The life or heart of the old form has been dying, and people are trying to see if there is new life to fuel their continued existence with one another.

And globally, old world relationships are not working as before, and thus new alliances are forming, a more multi polar world is developing, beyond super powers or dominating empires.

Russia, China, the United States, North Korea, Israel, Iran, Saudi Arabia etc. are looking for what countries or cultures to bond with as allies now.

This is similar to what happened prior to the world wars of the 20th century. And now we hope and pray another way is found to build alliances this time.

It is even more important now how this shuffling of alliances plays out, because we are so close to the Age of Aquarius’ need of Diversity within Unity; but also because there are now weapons of mass destruction that have been developed by so many countries now.

In personal lives everyone is searching for heart connections and soul connections with others, yet also looking for an authentic expression of oneself.

In that process we are found doubting previously considered solid relationships, jobs, and homes, as well as reconsidering how we each perceive ourselves and life itself.

Our beliefs and inner paradigms are shifting, shifting in order to make sense of our world now, in order to survive and evolve in conjunction with this New World we are all moving into.

The natural disasters and man made threats to our existence are pushing us to feeling our vulnerability to things that are greater than we each are.

As a result some are getting tougher to feel more able to deal with the threats, but many are also joining with others to help one another through these difficult times.

Look at the reaction of people to the natural disasters: many are going out of their way to assist others who are losing their homes or loved ones. Empathy and love between people are growing as a result.

We need to know we are all in this together, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, or lifestyles.

More events will unfold to assist us in banding together as One Earth Family.

But of course some will persist in believing the old paradigm of “survival of the fittest” understood as I need to conquer you in order to survive and evolve.   And then I need to take all the goodies for myself at your expense.

We know now that survival and evolution of our species is dependent on our knowing we are all connected and working together. Otherwise blowing each other up is in our future (or non future).

Remember as Eclipse Season begins to wind down, that the powerful natural disasters that have been happening are centered around the USA- where the Total Solar Eclipse travelled exclusively over. And the other big one, the 8.0 Earthquake struck not far away in Mexico.

Mars in Trump’s chart was triggered by the Total Solar Eclipse. And the USA natal Moon in Aquarius was closely opposed by that same eclipse.  So was North Korea’s Saturn very closely conjunct the eclipse.

Israel and Netanyahu  also experienced a triggering of Mars. I did not know what that meant until this last week when Israel staged it biggest military exercises of the last 20 years.  And they dropped a bomb on Syria to stop supposed chemical weapons from being delivered and in the process killed 2 people. The Middle East is now susceptible to major conflict as a result.

Our world and personal lives are going through such dramatic transformation now.

But in that process people are waking up, looking for new ways, opening their minds and hearts, listening better, developing greater empathy and compassion, and moving toward lives more heartfelt, soul based, and authentic.

Being human has never been an easy journey, at least not for long. We are here for reasons other than material gain and material success and contentedness.

We are quite a fascinating species.

We have hearts and souls and complicated interesting minds. Unlike any other Earth creatures we can paint beautiful pictures, compose music that touches and moves us deeply, develop spiritual perspectives, find meaning for our lives, create masterful technology, mass communication devices, mass transportation, and find love in our hearts and empathy for one another.

Yet unlike any other creatures we also kill for reasons other than eating, we hate and control, we judge and lack trust.

Our next frontier is the most important of all I believe.  That is seeing ourselves as one family embracing and respecting our differences. We must leave the false notion that there is something wrong with us, having original sin, or some other fatal flaw. Our self loathing and judgments have much to do with what we have done to hurt one another.

We are beautiful beings learning how to grow and evolve together. And unfortunately we have the habit of taking things to the edge before we are convinced we must change and transform.

Pray that we do not take things too far to the edge this time. Let us instead more gracefully awaken to who we are evolving into to be aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week from Sedona Arizona,

Leo

Eclipse Triggers, Mercury Direct, Full Moon and Astrology Forecast September 3-9

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 2, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week brings potentially big shifts and breakthroughs, as well as the beginning of increased clarity and direction.  This is because Mars and Mercury (which is slowing down to go back Direct Tuesday the 5th) are triggering the August 21st Total Solar Eclipse New Moon at 28+ degrees of Leo.  

North Korea has just ignited a most powerful hydrogen bomb right at this point of trigger. This will bring a shift into a new chapter of North Korea’s relationship with the USA and the world.

Big shifts, breakdowns and breakthroughs, many quite positive however, have been happening all through this Eclipse Season.

There have been very strong breakthroughs out of old stuck patterns and old ways in people’s lives happening in abundance since that Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21.

This has been a New Moon with new beginnings on steroids, blasting us fast forward into a New Chapter of our personal and collective lives.

Breakthroughs have been happening in many facets of human life, but most importantly there have been breakthroughs in consciousness, attitudes, and ways of seeing oneself and others.

We are being “groomed” for the coming challenges in our world, challenges that intend to transform us more fully into the consciousness that is needed in a new paradigm and age.

Our level of empathy is growing, as is our ability to get more insight, to see all the connections and meaning, to open our hearts to more love, and to see beyond the programmed veils that have hidden truth. We also are becoming more empowered, more aligned with our true and authentic selves.

Of course for many this Eclipse Season has been quite difficult and challenging, and sometimes very painful.  But the potential gifts are transformation, expanded consciousness, and the aforementioned breakthroughs out of old stuck patterns and ruts.

If you can see this Eclipse Season, with its intensity and difficulty, as opportunities to transform; you will then possess the bigger picture that will facilitate positive transformation out of victim consciousness.

You know you want to leave old ways that have become limiting and often quite boring. But it can only happen if you are willing to leave your comfort zone, let in what likely feels more chaotic, and trust the process of the Universe and your deeper Soul.

Without that trust and faith, you will fall into darker, more cynical places- filled with great fear and rage.

You may then toxically empower yourself or disempower yourself from a place of the “wronged one”. You may then become a revenge perpetrator on others who you feel deserve it for what they have done. Or you will take away your life force and confidence.

There is no one to look down on or to make the enemy.   There is no one to look up to and make a god who we are separate from.

As we acknowledge and own all parts of ourselves, and integrate those parts into greater wholeness inside; we then make compassionate connection with all our human family.

No we do not have to be expert in this process, but we do need to be following the path to get there.  As we follow that path, we will get more and more opportunity to awaken, transform and go further in our consciousness and ways of living.

This is not meant to be a road to sainthood and you do not need to totally conquer anger or fear. These are normal human instincts and feelings, that in moderation help us to empower ourselves (anger) or be more careful (fear).

But over reacting  to situations that are not immediately dangerous to our health or life can be worked with, healed and transformed. Even serious trauma can be transformed into healthier responses with the right healing.

These Eclipse Seasons can be opportune times to break through old ways, as we are then often given situations that are intense, bring back old wounds or traumas, and thus are ripe for positive transformation.

As Mars and Mercury this week trigger the Total Solar Eclipse from August 21, core issues may intensify.  See this as part of the process of transformation, and you will not get pulled into emotional and mental places that have ego stories that have kept you stuck.

On Tuesday September 5 Mercury goes back Direct, which brings a turning point into renewed clarity and direction.

But this time Mercury Direct will be more complicated and confusing than usual, as the Sun opposes nebulous Neptune the night before; Mars enters Virgo on the 5th; and there is a Full Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune on the 6th at 3:03 AM EDT.

Mars in Virgo brings a critical eye seeking order, as does the Sun in Virgo at this Full Moon; but the Full Moon in Pisces may add to the confusion.

There is a need now to surrender, trust, and have faith all is happening as it should and for a reason. This attitude is aligned with the highest potential of a Pisces Full Moon.

If you see the glass of life as half full now, not half empty, you will then be more able to trust and have faith as needed.

Allow the process to unfold, without rigid agenda or tight mind and heart, and give a few days to a week to find the clarity and direction you need.

This Eclipse Season with Mercury Retrograde has had many people looking over their past, sometimes as if their past is flashing before their eyes.

That is because the death of the old and birth of the new is more powerful than usual.

And the shakeups in the world have been more intense than usual and have brought back old times and past issues.

Charlottesville brought back old hatreds and prejudice from the Civil War and Civil Rights movement.

North Korea has brought back fears and hatreds from the Cold War with Russia, and fears of nuclear annihilation.

Hurricane Harvey has reminded us of Katrina with its horrible death and destruction and Presidential cluelessness.

Trump’s whitehouse dramas have brought back memories of Richard Nixon corruption and impeachment proceedings.

All these events during Eclipse Season are here for us to remember our past, clean out the old, learn from that past, and transform and evolve further.

Abuse of power, prejudice, hatred, and feared enemies are all issues we need to transform in order to survive and evolve into what is needed for an Age of Aquarius.

And white men are not the enemy either, to be hated and looked down on.

Yes they are needing to leave their entitlement and old comfort place of power in America and the world.

That is happening and no one can stop it.  Equality and Diversity within Unity are happening right before our eyes, even if the wounded and dying old world bear who has ruled the old world is raging in his death throes.

He will bring down anyone on his way down, so get out of the way by staying out of his dramas, his rage and fears.  Your own rage and over reacting fears will bring you down too.

Important world events will continue now, and keep coming all year long.

But you can still keep strong focus and awareness on your own real life and its grounded rituals now.  Sun and Mars in Virgo will help you in than effort, as well as keeping your life simple.  Bring order to your life, fix what needs fixing, and that will keep you aligned with Virgo energy.  Get ready for Autumn, get the kids back to school.

The lion of Leo time roared, now the grounded humility of Virgo wants to take its place.

Take care,

Leo

Continuing Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast August 27- September 2.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 26, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Most people reported that they experienced a great rising of intensity at the Total Solar Eclipse last Monday the 21st.

Many others experienced breakthroughs in their lives, some rather dramatically.

Others felt the changing winds, knew a big New Chapter in their lives had begun, but yet feel more is to come.

And of course we are in the middle of Eclipse Season, lasting till around Autumn Equinox.

After the Total Eclipse on Monday, a few days later on Friday August 25, Hand of Time Saturn went direct, showing us “fated” events as time started clicking forward again..

Later that day Hurricane Harvey hit the coast of Texas, the biggest Hurricane of the decade.

Also later that day North Korea blasted off two missiles.   This was at an important turning point in the conflict between the United States and North Korea.  It shows us that this conflict is not over.

With the second, last, and most important Eclipse, The Total Solar Eclipse in our rear view mirrors, and with Saturn going Direct, we now have arrived in the New Chapter.

Nevertheless, next weekend, Labor Day weekend in the USA, will bring us another important turning point in personal and world affairs in this New Chapter.

Before that, on Tuesday August 29 there is a 2nd quarter Moon in Sagittarius.

That second quarter Moon has the Sun in Virgo, which it entered last Tuesday just after the Eclipse, square to the Moon in Sagittarius.

So whatever sense of grounded reality we may have experienced since the Eclipse, we will shift again into higher gears of movement forward.

And then next weekend, a turning point weekend,  Mars will trigger the degree in Leo where the Total Eclipse ignited-  28+ degrees of Leo. And it will be exactly trine transiting Uranus, a planet of breakthrough and radical change.

So with that trigger, in effect the Eclipse “comes back”.  More is shaking and shifting. Also what started earlier in Eclipse Season will be stirred up again.

And that Mars placement makes contact again with Trump’s Mars and Rising sign, North Korea’s Saturn, Israel’s Mars, and their Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Mars also.

The North Korea issue will be resurfacing again..

Nothing big happened with Israel in the public eye, but there must be something brewing there.  There is a decent chance we will see something more obvious around the Mars trigger next Saturday September 2.

Then on the 3rd of September Mercury, slowing down and getting ready to go back Direct on September 5, makes conjunction with Mars, adding another trigger to the last Eclipse.  Mercury pretty much stays at that degree for a few days.

All of this is happening in opposition to the USA natal Moon in Aquarius.  That natal Moon in Aquarius represents the Bill of Rights for America, its greater social consciousness.

It is the principle of equality and Diversity in Unity that is the promise from the beginnings of the United States.

With all the triggered planetary energies being in Leo, the conflict is between Leo’s need for personal power with Aquarius’s need for group or community consciousness.

Trump, and that kind of person in power, will be in conflict with the voice of the people or the voice of democracy.

In your personal life use the best of what Leo represents:  heartfelt expression, having fun,  being creative and spontaneous, spreading positive hopeful energy

After the Leo triggers on the 2nd/3rd of September, Mercury is slowing down, stationing to go back Direct on September 5.

The couple of days surrounding that change of direction can be disorienting and even confusing.

Mercury was changing directions on election night in November 2000.  Gore and Bush were running for President, and the media kept going back and forth declaring a different winner of the election all night long. And it was weeks later when Bush was declared to be President.

Disorientation and confusion are usually not that much when Mercury changes directions, but keep in mind around September 5 that clarity does not magically appear right away when Mercury is going back Direct.

In fact it could take up to a week or so to see complete clarity and to recognize what direction things are moving toward.

So later this coming week into next week there will be shifts and shakeups again.

These shifts are all meant to take you out of stuck places, and give you open doorways into new realms, new consciousness, new chapters of life.

This Eclipse Season will be looked back on and remembered as an important time period in our lives.

More important world events are on the way during Eclipse Season and soon afterwards,

The economy will face a big downturn soon.  It will likely begin this Autumn or maybe the winter of 2017/18.

2018 and beyond show a severe downturn.   The current economic system is transforming.  The candidacy of Bernie Sanders was not a freak happening.  It showed us where we are headed economically.  The Occupy Wall Street movement was a harbinger of coming times.

People on the left and right believe we need to tax the wealthy and big corporations more, and make the economy more fair for all the people.

Health plans will continue to fail until we create a Universal Health plan, as so many western nations already have.

Difficult coming economic challenges will give motivation to notions of sharing the wealth.

As we make these important changes in our world, each of us will also be making big changes in our personal lives and in our families.

The old programming from an old paradigm no longer applies, if it ever did.

We need to retrain our minds and hearts and consciousness to the knowledge of connections.  We have spent too much time and energy fighting against others, believing that is the way to a better life. We have wasted too much time believing everything is random and meaningless, or else believing that some father god is who we answer to and who gives us meaning.

Joining with others is the way forward now, even as we honor our distinct and unique individuality. Knowing all is connected and meaningful is the way now.  We can now know that love and truth are the Universe’s way to lead us to our human evolving into an Age of Aquarius

When we lose the programming from an old paradigm, we realize connections in everything, we find meaning, we naturally create win/win situations, we find signs and symbols from the Universe that show us our way.

Let go of the old beliefs that limit your freedom to decide for yourself what is right or wrong, what is true or not, what is best for our world and human family.

As liberated humans we will evolve and co-create the Age of Aquarius.

It is going to be a rough ride at times, but we are ready for the challenge.

Take care,

Leo

Shadow Boxing and Astrology Forecast August 13-19

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It has been very intense this last week in the world and in many of our personal lives and emotions too.

It has been very frightening for many people, as the leaders of the USA and North Korea do their macho struts with one another, with we earthlings put in the shit storm of their narcissistic rage.

From a bigger picture, however, we are being taken through a dark passage of labor pains on the way to the Age of Aquarius

So now our lives are being taken out of our comfort zones, as Eclipse Seasons do,  and this one is much more intense than usual.

Breakthroughs in our consciousness are more likely now, as are breakdowns too.

We are being prepared for greater and greater transformation of life on Planet Earth entering the Age of Aquarius.   

We travel this week through the 4th quarter and final week before the much anticipated Total Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 21, which travels over the United States for the first time since 1918, the last year of World War I.

As we predicted several months ago, this current Eclipse Season brings the likelihood of war, at the very least the threat of major war.

We also let you know that Donald Trump would have his Mars in Leo from his natal chart triggered by the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo.  Mars is a planet of action, force, and yes war.

We did not give you any indication of the North Korean leader’s chart because there are different dates given for his birth.

But we did let you know that North Korea’s natal Saturn, from its founding date,  would be almost exactly triggered by this Total Solar Eclipse.  Saturn represents something that must be faced, that which one cannot escape. It also represents grave situations and often a predetermined fate.

We suggested that Israel and Israeli leader Netanyahu would also have the Mars in each of their charts triggered, as both have their Mars’ at 28 degrees of Leo, exactly where the Solar Eclipse will be on August 21.

We do have another month or so before this current Eclipse Season ends, so we will still look closely at what may happen in the Middle East.

Another “war” that is raging now in this Eclipse Season is a culture war.  That culture war is happening at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville Virginia.

White Lives Matter, Nazi, and KKK haters are protesting the taking down of the statue of Robert E. Lee, the most important confederate general from the Civil War.

Thomas Jefferson was the founder of University of Virginia.  Thomas Jefferson was the main inspiration for the USA Bill of Rights, which included the idea that “all men are created equal”.

And on the contrary Thomas Jefferson was a slave holder.  What did they really mean by “all men are created equal”?

These White Supremacist protests have been countered by protests from Black Lives Matter and others who strongly object to the White Nationalists.

Hundreds have shown up for the protests and violence has been breaking out. Three people were killed and many others injured.

All these wars are representative of old world paradigms that if continued will destroy us all.  The possibility of another world war hangs over our heads now.

Each of us is being urgently asked to release any connections we have to a world that believes life is merely survival of the fittest, which has created the idea that enemies must be conquered and destroyed.  And that old world has developed weapons of mass destruction created to ruthlessly destroy those enemies.

Hundreds of thousands of human beings, mostly innocent civilians, were killed by the atom bombs dropped by the United States on two Japanese cities to bring an end to World War II in August 1945.

Now many countries have weapons of mass destruction, as does North Korea now.

We are at a most urgent turning point as we approach the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21.  

Each of us must leave the belief system of superior versus inferior; have and have nots: perpetrator and victim; and the notion that those who are starkly different are enemies who need to be destroyed.

We are all part of the same human family and need to learn to coexist with one another peacefully.

We are moving toward an Age of Aquarius, but collectively right now it is feeling like we are entering a dark night of the soul before that new age fully arrives.

Many of us have already faced many of our individual demons and shadows during dark times.  We have then arisen into a new paradigm in our consciousness.

We must lead the way, and must leave behind hatred and violence from our hearts.

Of course we may get very angry at times, but do not need to be hateful and violent.

The Age of Aquarius is an age of Diversity Within Unity, so each of us must honor our own and others’ unique differences, but still know we are united by the circle of Oneness like the Yin/Yang symbol.

I am not sure how bad it will need to get before we learn our collective lessons now, so to transform our collective Consciousness to that of Love and Truth from the Age of Aquarius.

This Eclipse Season is a major turning point to let us know the direction we moving toward now as a human family.

This coming week is preparing us for the Total Solar Eclipse as we enter the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle begun at the Leo New Moon on July 23.

4th quarters are times of reflection, gathering, centering, and preparing for the New Moon, which this time will be a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21.

As we go through this 4th quarter we sense endings and goodbyes, we prepare and get ready.  But unlike most 4th quarters this one will be intense in anticipation for the Eclipse New Moon.

That is because this coming Eclipse New Moon in Leo is a much bigger new beginning than the usual new moon or even the usual Solar Eclipse New Moon.

This truly signifies an open portal into a New Chapter of our lives, on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

And it may tend to be more confusing this week prior to the Eclipse New Moon, and in fact up until September 5. 

That is because Mercury is going Retrograde tonight Saturday August 12. It will last until September 5.  Then it will take another week or so to come fully out of any fogs in our minds.

So August 21 is when the portal opens into this big and important New Chapter of our lives; then September 5 is when clarity and direction are greater when Mercury goes Direct.

Then on September 19/20 at the New Moon in Virgo just before the Autumn Equinox; the New Chapter is made manifest.  This Eclipse Season ends.

New events that are  connected to the meaning of the portal opening at the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21 will have the green light to manifest.

It is best to meditate as often as possible, to be in nature as often as possible.  If you are drawn into great fear and inner darkness when watching or reading the news, keep your watching and reading the news to a minimum or even not at all.  It is important now to keep our emotions and minds clear from toxins and distortions, especially now with Mercury Retrograde.

Mercury Retrograde brings us to reflect on people and memories from the past.  It also helps us to see everything from a different angle and to question our previous decisions or direction.  But don’t change those directions or plans until clarity appears when Mercury goes back Direct again.

And of course Mercury Retrograde can play tricks with our minds, and being aware of that will help you to not get so easily taken in by those tricks of the mind.

With the intensity or the Total Solar Eclipse combined with Mercury Retrograde, it is important to not jump to conclusions or be impulsive.  Surrender to the process, let go of set agendas and being too controlling.   Trust all is happening as it must, and be patient.

Keep in mind that all that is happening is part of the bigger picture of transformation and transition into an Age of Aquarius.

Stay out of grave fear and hatred so you can center yourself, remain calm, and be connected and aligned with your Higher Self and the Universe.

From that place inside you will more likely see symbols and signs that show the way, experience synchronicity that brings magic and clarity, and see the connections that help you to know all is OK.

Love and Truth are guiding the way.  Fear tries to challenge that way.

Ego is not the enemy of our Higher Self, in fact some is needed for personal confidence and empowerment.

But ego must be the servant of our Higher Self not the leader.  When Higher Self is leading the way we know all is connected and happening for a reason.  When ego is leading the way we feel all as separate, in opposition without unity, and filled with fear and open to hatred for those not serving our ego needs.

Next week we will get even more into the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo that will happen next week.

Please take a look at new video I made about the coming eclipses: There will be a follow up video within the next couple of weeks

Till next week,

Leo
