Follow the Yellow Brick Road and Astrology Forecast March 4-10

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We pretty much leave Eclipse Season this coming week.  And Jupiter switches from Direct to Retrograde late Thursday March 8, putting an end to the rare event of All Planets being Direct, which has been happening since the first of this current year.

And later this week, on Friday March 9, we begin the last quarter of a lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15. A new lunar cycle begins at the Pisces New Moon on March 17.

Where are we both collectively and in our personal lives now?

We will now be able to process all the changes, events, emotions, thoughts, etc. that have been swirling in our lives this Eclipse Season.

Then after Mercury goes Retrograde on March 22, we will have even more time and inclination to reflect, ponder, analyze, and go deeper into our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls.

Then after April 15, the dogs are released through the Portal that will be opened then. There will be then a New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus, Mercury going Direct, and a Yod Finger of God encompassing the USA natal Mars.

This will be a time of important of new starts, and important world and personal events that will mostly be understood in the context of the events of the last two Eclipse Seasons.

Much has happened in our personal and collective lives since last July 2017.  Much has happened more specifically since this last January 2018, when Winter Eclipse Season 2018 began.

Remember also that on Winter Solstice 2017, Saturn went into its favorite sign Capricorn  on Winter Solstice day, making a strong conjunction with the Sun in Capricorn. This gave us a Winter ’17/’18 signature.

That signature told us how serious and down turning winter would be, and how gravity (ruled by Saturn and Capricorn) would bring a metaphorically quite strong down-pull or down-fall.

In large part because of that knowledge I predicted a severe downward turn of the then “flying high mania”  Stock Market.

And it was so.

And this is only the beginning of the downturn, which will become a crash, and then an important transformation of the USA and world economies.

The future holds a much more Bernie Sanders kind of economy, and a severely transformed world into Diversity within Unity for an Age of Aquarius.

In the meantime the process will not be pretty.  There is a USA downfall that we are experiencing led by the Trump administration, very likely coming major wars in the world, and a continued internal USA civil and culture war.

This chaos will bring many governments to try to overly control their citizens, while said chaos will also bring much creative energy to stand up to the controls and to what has been a largely corrupt and unfair old world structure. This “standing up” is already in gear.

Movement to overthrow this current USA administration through impeachment will continue to grow.

All this turmoil is a clearing for the Age of Aquarius,  coming on the heels of the chaos.

I promise videos and podcasts soon (before April 15), and some will be with David Sanipass as we did last year.

This week we experience Jupiter going Retrograde on Thursday and the 4th quarter of the current lunar cycle beginning on Friday.  And before all that both Mercury and Venus will enter Aries on Tuesday the 6th of March (my birthday).

Venus and Mercury leave flowing and sensitive Pisces to be in straight forward, direct, and assertive Aries for awhile.

Both Venus and Mercury are relational planets, so relationships can expect to be more sometimes brutally honest with one another.

If you have been walking on eggs with someone, not wanting to upset them or the status quo, you will start feeling more motivated to assert your truth with them.

In world affairs the same thing will be happening, as people will stop mincing words and instead be more open about what they want to assert.  Aries challenges and confronts, often with force.

On Thursday when up-lifting and expansive Jupiter is stationary waiting to change directions, there should be a spike in hopeful and joyful feelings.  But that will in many cases be temporary, as Jupiter will then go Retrograde for the next 4 months.

Also as Jupiter is changing directions, some people will be impulsive, saying what they would not normally say or jumping into something without caution.

The last quarter Moon is in Sagittarius on March 9. That means the Sun is in laid back Pisces, being countered by free spirited adventurous Sagittarius.  You could be conflicted between those two quite different ways of being.

We will be in the last quarter till March 17 at the New Moon in Pisces. As usual the last quarter opens us up to process and reflect on what has been and where we are at.

Sometimes energies or events are so accelerated or intense, that we lose ourselves or our perspective.

In this 4th quarter and beyond, through the soon approaching Mercury Retrograde, all the way to  April 15; we have the ability to gather ourselves, to shake off the dust of recent experiences, and to look our lives and selves right in the eye of truth.

If you judge yourself or others too harshly now, however, you will be unaligned and taken off track.   You are human and we make mistakes, and all we can do is apologize if need be, atone (at-one), learn form the mistakes, and promise our selves to do our best to never repeat the same mistakes.

Many of you who regularly read this blog, consider your self on a soul’s journey.  And right now, our souls are in the beginning stages of a world storm, a storm that seeks to shake up the status quo.  It is not an easy time for many now.

I know many of you are quite concerned and sometimes fearful of what is happening to our country and world..

If you look from a bigger picture at our human story over the past hundreds of years, you will see many challenges and forks in the road.  And though we sure messed up a lot, we also are quite resilient and resourceful and creative.  And we have been incredibly loving and caring so much of the time, even if history books do not tell us that.

We have created such works of beauty and artistry, built awesome civilizations, adventurously travelled so far, even to the Moon.  We are the only Earth creatures to do all this.

Yes we have also been so nasty, murderous, self serving, greedy, and hateful.

But we always do seem to somehow grow and evolve in so many ways.

And we are all now so close to one another through mass communication, social media,  mass transportation, world commerce, and all together under the Sun and Moon, and having the same basic human needs.

So now our growing edge is knowing and honoring our connections, not seeing ourselves as all separate and enemies with one another. It is no longer good enough to only know connections based on negotiations, trades, and contrived circumstances.

It is time to know and honor that we are all connected in our hearts and souls naturally, all parts of the same human family.  It is time to know that the Universe has all the dots connected, not random. It is time to know we live a meaningful existence, on a sacred home planet, in a beautiful diverse Universe, all together as One.

Dark and light, male and female, yin and yang- many differences but all connected as One.

Deeply knowing all this will help us to evolve to our next level, all in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Navigating Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast February 4-10.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are smack dab in the middle of Winter Eclipse Season 2018.  Last week was the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo.  The week after this one, on February 15, is the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.

We are always taken out of the same-old, same-old patterns of thought, emotions, or behavior patterns during Eclipse Seasons, and this one is no different.

As we are taken out of our normal patterns, we are on our toes and ready to meet the challenges and changes.

In the greater world the stock market downfall began last week.   This will continue.  Now it is possible and even likely that there will be gasps of manic energy reviving the stock climb, but it will be short lived as the overall direction is downward now, as we have stated before.

Before the end of the year, the value of stocks will be much less and the true condition of the economy will be more evident.  This is the beginning of the transformation of the Military/Economic Complex that runs the USA and much of the world.

This transformation will accelerate from 2018-2022, as at the same time the Age of Aquarius will be having its buds pushing through the branches of our world.

The Aquarius emphasis of the Eclipse Season will get even stronger as we move through the Aquarius Solar Eclipse New Moon on February 15.

That means that collective community efforts will get more powerful, and the push by Inspector Mueller to investigate the Trump administration will get more powerful too.   Notions of impeachment will become more than just notions.

The distraction of the FBI Memo will not stop the impeachment train from chugging forward.

So there are two collective efforts now, one more pushed by Democrats toward possible impeachment, and one more pushed by Republicans toward discrediting Clinton, Obama and Democrats for being in collusion with the FBI against Trump.

This is an extension of the culture wars that became more evident during the last Eclipse Season with Charlottesville.

And speaking of the connections between last eclipse season and this one, the North Korea issue is still red hot even though North and South Korea are having a peaceful get together at the Winter Olympics.

In my estimation the Trump administration is planning a hit on North Korea this year if North Korea does not promise to begin dismantling their nuclear program. And it is not likely that North Korea will do so.

And keep an eye on the Middle East this Eclipse Season also, as the Trump decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has not felt the full vehemence against that decision yet.

The Me-Too movement, getting further mileage with the convictions against Larry Nasser for sexually abusing so many young girls, is not done yet by a long shot.

Any group missions you have now, or socially conscious groups you plan on joining forces with, will have the winds of the Universe blowing at your back for forward movement.

Sometimes during these Eclipse Seasons events happen that seem to be taking one backward and into negative places.

From a bigger picture this is necessary in the process of transformation, as more purging is needed of old attitudes, beliefs, and ways of being from the past.

One’s demons or ghosts from the past often need to be seen in the light of day in order to integrate those shadow parts of self in a more constructively holistic manner.   Demons locked in closets are ultimately much more dangerous.

But if you keep seeing your life from “glass half-full” viewpoints, you will see the synchronicities, feel the magic, and know the Universe is talking to you.

When you recognize the Universe is speaking to you with its signs, symbols, and guide posts; you will then be more able to act in accordance with the Universe, using your intentions to co-create your life.

This is why it is important to not be controlled by the programmed world paradigm.  That programming tends to keep us locked in fear, not truly able to recognize the Universe/the Gods/God/Goddess/spirit/soul/spirit guides/angels (or whatever your belief system calls it) talking to you to help you on your path.

You are never alone, though sometimes it feels one has been abandoned by the God-force.   That is when we have dark nights of the soul that make us feel so alone without meaning.

We live in a meaningful Universe, helping us to evolve and contribute to the world and human family on our sacred Earth.

If  you see through the eyes of the old paradigm, you see everything that happens as random, run by good or bad luck.  And you will hear in the background of your mind  mental tapes of “Us versus Them”, good guys versus bad guys, male against female,  dark versus light, Judeo/Christian versus Muslim, hetero versus homo,  etc.

Yes we have opposites but they are connected at a deep level and though they may butt heads sometimes, they are together as One.

Nothing can truly unglue the circle of wholeness, except us in our own minds and hearts.  The Moon stays round, the Sun shines, Earth keeps alive no matter what we think or do.

But we can self destruct and eliminate ourselves. And that happens if we hate ourselves or others.

We are complicated as humans, not good or bad, just what we are.  We can make the best of what we are and what we have been given; or we can judge and separate our selves as good or evil. That battle will destroy us as we will hate a part of ourselves that we judge as bad or good.

And do you not think it is revealing that every side thinks it is the good ones and those they oppose are the bad or evil ones. North Korea and Iran demonize us and we demonize them. Is one right and the other wrong? Or are both victims of an old paradigm that separates by demonization, and then seeks to destroy the “bad guys”.

Once Germany and Japan were the evil ones and now they are good because they are on our side now.

Lets wake up now and know we are all one, with many different faces: Equal in the eyes of the Universe- creating Diversity Within Unity. Age of Aquarius.

Till next week and the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius

Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo and Astrology Forecast January 28- February 3

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 27, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

So this week we experience the first of two eclipses this Winter Eclipse Season.  It is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo, meaning the Sun is in Aquarius opposite the Moon in Leo.  The Moon will be totally eclipsed by the shadow of the Earth.

And the totality will be seen in western USA but not in the east, which will see a partial eclipse.

Many are making a big deal about it being a blue moon, which means two full moons in the same month.  The blue moon idea is man-made, however, because the calendar we use is man made- not connected to anything of nature.

This is also called a Super Moon, as it is so close to the Earth.

But what is truly important and not part of a manic hype, is the fact that this full moon is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon.

Lunar Eclipses at Full Moons, and all Solar Eclipses are New Moons.  All New Moons have the Sun and Moon conjunct together.  Full Moons all have the Sun exactly opposite the Moon, in this case Sun in Aquarius and Moon in Leo.

A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is a normal Full Moon, but on steroids, so much more intense, powerful, and important.

For a couple days before the event and a couple of days after, its energy and meaning are more important.

This Lunar Eclipse in on Wednesday January 31 at 8:27 AM EST.  With the Sun in Aquarius and Moon in Leo, we have the power of the group (Aquarius) opposed by the power of the one (Leo).

The Women’s March and the confrontation of gymnastic doctor Nasser by 150 girls he sexually abused is part of that theme of the group versus “the one”.

Building a case against Trump, which will likely lead to an impeachment trial in Congress, will continue the theme during this Eclipse Season.

Our world is transforming and getting better, even as we are more and more made aware of what is so wrong in it.  Only that awareness on a deeper soul level can get us ot face what we need to face so we can purge and progress.

Trump is not the end of the world.  He is a catalyst from the Universe to shake things up, release what is toxic, and transform us into the Age of Aquarius.

So stop living in fear and stop focusing on the problem.   Focus on what we can do to transform this world and make it better, in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

The second eclipse is a Solar Eclipse in Aquarius, which will make the power of the group even stronger.

In these mentioned cases the group looks like the good guy and the one looks like the bad guy.  That is not always the case.  When Christ was crucified, for instance, the crowd looked worse than “the one”.

From another angle, Leo is the like fuel, and Aquarius that which receives and delivers the fuel.  The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo and it is the shining fuel which shines the light and warmth to the group of planets and group of living things on those planets that revolve around the Sun.

In the American government system, the executive branch of the President is Leo and the legislative branch with the representatives and senators is Aquarius.

Also Leo is the energetic heart and Aquarius is the mind.  Leo at its best follows its heart or intuition and Aquarius trusts its mind and mental principles.

So finding the balance between heart and mind is important at the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon.

And would you rather follow a strong leader (Leo) or a strong group?  At its worst a Leo leader is a tyrant and at its worst the Aquarius group cannot agree on anything or get anything done.

Feel this week the shifting winds generated by the Lunar Eclipse.  Allow these winds to circulate through your body, heart and soul.   There is new love and truth swirling through those winds.  It is a good time for breakthroughs into new ideas or ways of being.

Anything that is blocking the way of those winds of love and truth to circulate through you will be challenged to break away or break down.

Those old belief systems that keep you stuck may be challenged now.   Lifeless relationships or jobs will need to be transformed or let go.

You are moving through a New Chapter of your life now and you can only do so if you surrender and let go of the parts of the Old Chapter that keep you chained to it.

In the greater world the issues with investigator Mueller and Russia and Trump’s team will grow in intensity. By the end of Winter Eclipse Season we will know more of where it is all headed.

Also the manic stock market is “cruising for a bruising'”  It is almost time for a crash.

Also look what is going to happen as a result of Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem being the sole capital of Israel.  It is only a matter of time when the match will be lit there.

And in South Korea in February, during Eclipse Season, the Winter Olympics happens. The recent peaceful overtures between North and South Korea may hold back the USA plan to take out North Korea’s nuclear program.

Remember that Iraq gave up its weapons of mass destruction, then was invaded.  And we were lied to that Iraq still had those weapons.

And Libya gave up theirs and was invaded.  Do you really believe North Korea will then give up theirs after what they have seen in those countries?

This year brings much transformational change.  And if we each get past the programming from society and families, so we can let in truths we are reluctant to see, and open up to love we have been taught not to trust; then we will have more connections, magic and meaning in our lives.

We will then lead more authentic, satisfying, purposeful lives in greater soul and body health.

We will then get more serious about changing this world, and bringing in the values of our better angels.   We will create a world that is fair, and honoring of what is True and what is of Love.  We will create a world of Diversity Within Unity- The Age of Aquarius.

Keep up the faith and keep your light shining for all around you to bask in its warmth.  If enough of us do that, together we will transform and save this world.

Till next week

Leo

Beginning Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast January 14-20.

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

A portal opens this week to initiate Winter Eclipse Season 2018.   Though the first actual Eclipse is a couple weeks away, the New Moon in Capricorn January 16 marks the energetic opening of Eclipse Season.

These last few weeks have been rather difficult for many as the recent prevalence of Capricorn/Scorpio energies has tended to drop people into what is real and needs to be processed or acted upon.  There has been little room for escape or distraction.

And energies have been kept down and inward as we have been in the 4th quarter part of the lunar cycle this last week.

But you will have more energy to move actively forward after January 16 at 9:17 PM EST. at the Capricorn New Moon.

As all planets are also going Direct now, that adds to the ability to move forward; this continues until March 8 when Jupiter goes Retrograde.

This New Moon in Capricorn is the  first New Moon since Uranus went Direct on January 2,  which began the movement of All Planets Direct.

So this is a significant New Moon, especially so as it begins Eclipse Season.

New Moons always bring energy for starts, new beginnings, action and movement.   And as the Full Moon brings climax and/or some resolution to what begins at the New Moon, one can see how the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on January 31 is an extension of the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Capricorn this week.

So what begins for you or begins in the world this week, after the New Moon in Capricorn, will give indication of what Eclipse Season will tend to bring.

Capricorn is the sign “ruled” by Saturn, and as such signifies “It is Time”.  There is really  nowhere else to go when it is time.  Saturn is considered by some the hand of fate.   Whether that fate is determined by some force outside ourselves, or is meant to be by  karmic “what goes around comes around” reality is open to one’s interpretation.

Capricorn is also the best sign for making a certain goal, organizing plans to accomplish that goal, and having the discipline to carry out that plan.

Capricorn is used best if the plan is carried out step by step, more methodically than impulsively.

You are ready now to make real your dreams and ideals, your goals and desires.  Only you can stop that train from beginning its journey now. Just keep in mind that the plan will take time to fully unfold and manifest- no  quick fixes.

In the greater world look for clues as to what this eclipse season will bring. Look for hints in the stock market and economy, look for signs of what will  happen in the Middle East and Korea.

That does not mean to focus on those events, but from a detached place to recognize what may happen in the 3D world, as some call it.

Your focus is best placed on your soul’s journey and the bigger picture of what is transforming in your life and in the world.

Those likely chaotic events coming to the world are part of the process that will take us to our new world and Age of Aquarius.

Donald Trump is in the world to be a catalyst for great change and transformation.  His presence is taking us outside old boxes and awakening us to what has been wrong in our world and country.

He represents much of what needs to change, and how we need to stand up for what we believe, no matter the pressure to give in.

Ultimately we are learning to connect the opposites, and connect the dots in the Universe to find meaning in all situations.

Dark and light, male and female, yin and yang, homosexual and heterosexual, all meant to be connected though inherently so different. This is the core of Diversity within Unity, a call phrase for the Age of Aquarius.

So  if you let hate run your attitude you are severing the threads that connect.  That does not mean being all nice and sweet. Of course you need the passion to fight for what you believe and what you are;  but just like in a good family you keep the thread of connection inside yourself no matter how estranged or angry you become.

Though it is hard to see sometimes, we are all members of the  human family, even though  you may be among those who are beginning to mutate into being a more evolved version.

If we keep the US versus THEM paradigm, we will eventually destroy ourselves and the planet, as weapons of mass destruction are spreading all over the globe.

Finding what unites us, even though so different, will bring sanity and  peace to the world.

Do we need to be taken to the edge before we collectively wake up?  Soon we will know the answer.

Just before the New Moon in Capricorn, energies will already become more active, as Uranus squares Venus and the Sun, while Jupiter makes an intense sextile to Pluto.

Uranus is strong Saturday and Sunday and Jupiter/Pluto Monday and Tuesday.  That means surprises, and wake up  calls (Uranus), and intense stirring of passions (Jupiter/Pluto).

Remember that Eclipse Season is beginning now, getting us ready for the actual eclipses.  Eclipses shake things up out of same-old, same-old, and tend to bring breakdowns of the old habits and patterns, and/or breakthroughs into new realms, new vistas and dimensions.

Have you noticed the increased focus on extraterrestrial and UFO’s in the mainstream of society lately?  That egg is just starting to crack open now.

We will of course give greater attention to Eclipse Season now.  In that regard please check out this video forecast I just created: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyIVxnMPGzI&feature=youtu.be

It is time for the intensity of transformation to increase. It is time to be even more committed to your Higher Self and the path into a New Age. Pressures to be fearful and/or hateful will get even stronger this Eclipse Season.  Stand up for what you believe in, but do not make hated enemy. It keeps the old paradigm alive.

Trump will tighten up his defenses as pressure on him increases. There is no telling what he will do when backed into the corner of possible impeachment or otherwise attempts to “dethrone” him.

Sure seems like his soul has been here before (emperor, king) and so have we been here before with dictators, kings, queens, etc

The Age of Aquarius makes necessity for “we the people” to be responsible for the world and human family, not a team of the privileged few who abuse power to take what they want from the Earth and our human family. That paradigm is getting ready to die; and not just the few, indeed all of us have been playing its game for hundreds of years.

We all are responsible for the creation and perpetuation of that old paradigm, and we all are responsible for co-creating the new paradigm.

Till next week when we look more closely at Trump’s chart for coming events.

Making it Real and Astrology Forecast January 7-13

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 6, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This last week was meant to be a wake-up call (Uranus Direct) that motivates us to get  outside old boxes in our minds, hearts, and lives. 

In so doing, we release that which has blocked our way, and we are then liberated from the chains of old beliefs, decaying patterns, and crusty habits of living and expressing.

We are getting ready to make the needed changes that will help us to lead our lives in a more aligned and authentic way.  It is time for “out with the old,  get ready for the new.”

2018 has just begun, and will take us further forward on a ride of transition between the old and new- in our personal lives and in our global lives.

This week the intensity amps up and seriousness gets stronger.  That which is frivolous, superficial, or light and airy will have little space in our life rooms for expression.

It might be needed and would be appreciated, but it is not what we are being presented with energetically this week.

On Saturday eve Mars conjuncts Jupiter in Scorpio, which increases intensity and emotional volatility.   That intensity and seriousness will extend into Sunday and all through next week, as Sun and Venus in Capricorn make sextile to Jupiter in Scorpio; Mars in Scorpio makes sextile to Pluto in Capricorn; Sun and Venus in Capricorn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn; Moon in Scorpio from mid day Tuesday till Friday; and finally  Jupiter in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Scorpio on the 15th.

You will notice that all these planets and configurations are in Capricorn and Scorpio.

Those two signs “get down to business”, see at the core of truth, are very focused, and do not like time wasted by the trivial and superficial.

And most of all,  those two signs are about being REAL.  So this coming week, it will be difficult to avoid and escape.  Work is good.  Going to your personal underworld is good.  Being serious is aligned. Logical and organized is good.  Getting to what is important is needed.  Being present is required.

This week energies are yin, so we move yin-ward, so to speak; and this is especially so beginning late Monday as we enter the 4th and last quarter phase of the Moon’s cycle.

That 4th quarter will last until January 16 at the Capricorn New Moon.

So this week gives us mostly Capricorn and Scorpio.  Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which rules gravity. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto which rules the underworld.   

So you can see that movement is down to Earth and down under the Earth’s surface.  And that is what is happening for each of us too.

It is time to make things real, to make things work, to be more involved with manifesting (or at least making serious plans to manifest), building,  and grounding your ideas and ideals, your dreams, and your future plans.

In the greater world, issues will get more real there too.  It should be easier to see the grounded truths, without so much BS or fluffy marketing and spinning of the truth.

The stock market might also be getting a reality check, as might the economy in general.

Bubbles are ready to be broken, in our minds and in the world.

If you have wanted to talk frank and real- with authority- to someone in your life, this is a time to do it.  Honesty is now the best policy, especially with yourself.

What needs to be made real, to be faced straight on in your life?  There is no running away now, it is time.

There will be a potential explosiveness wanting to rise from the depths at times this week also.  Be aware of what is boiling beneath the surface of your mind and emotions.

Do your best to be in control of your expression of it.  Otherwise something may trigger its ugly expression, as you will lose control.

There is much beneath the surface that wants to come up to be expressed and dealt with now.

Then you can release it, let it go, purge it.  Do not judge it, just release it.  That will clear out inner blocks in your psyche, chakra system, and body, so you can move forward without so much inner baggage. Then you can reintegrate, re-center, and align with your Soul, Higher Self, and Universe.

Then on the 16th at the Capricorn  New Moon, there is movement forward, movement that is organized and under control.

That New Moon also opens up Winter 2018 Eclipse Season.  

The first eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo on January 31.  Then there is another eclipse:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.

The Winter Olympics will be held in South Korea from February 9- February 25.

This is smack dab within the Eclipse Season, straddling the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on the 15th.

North and South Korea are planning to talk this week with one another, this week of seriousness.  This will be getting them ready for the Olympics in Korea, but also will assist the movement of negotiations between them on the nuclear issues.

I know this: If the USA goes ahead with military drills with South Korea this winter, there will be war. If they do not just postpone, which they are doing for the Olympics, but also cancel the drills, and North Korea stops doing nuclear tests; then conditions will be set for a more peaceful potential.

And you can also expect other difficult world situations to get more serious too now, like in Iran where massive protests have broken out, or in Israel/Palestine where Jerusalem has become an explosive issue.

And the explosive potential is there this week in the world and in our own emotional body.

This can be a very good week for setting a foundation or making grounded reality for your life and for what you want to build and manifest in this New Chapter of life.

All planets are now going Direct until March 8 when Jupiter goes Retrograde. So all systems are go now for building your new cycle of life.

Till next week,

Leo

New Year 2018 and Astrology Forecast December 31- January 6

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 30, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

This week we transition from 2017 into 2018. We begin the year with a bang as there is a Full Moon on January 1 and Uranus goes Direct on the 2nd.   And as Uranus goes Direct, there is the relatively rare occurrence of all planets in Direct motion.

Yes 2017 is ending. And what a year 2017 was for the United States and world.

It was the first year of the new Trump administration in the USA.  This of course created intense ripples all across the globe, as the USA has a great influence in the world.

The tone being set by Trump is replicated in other parts of the world, as nationalism is creating a serious counter to a growing globalism.

There is a separation, one nation from another, that is an outgrowth of nationalism

In the 1930’s nationalism created conditions that led to severe world conflicts, that led to World War II.

And now you can see again animosity building in nations who are defining their enemy lists.

Iran, North Korea, and Muslims in general are developing in the cross-hairs of the Trump USA world viewpoint.

Israel has become a staunch ally of the Trump administration, especially so as Trump declared Jerusalem the exclusive capital of Israel.

That declaration automatically erased the USA as a mediator between Israel and Palestine.  It also automatically pushed Iran and much of the Muslim world into serious opposition to the USA and Israel.

Battle lines are being drawn as the USA under Trump is wanting to eliminate regimes they cannot have influence over within their idea of world order.

Rome, so to speak, wants more power, and Caligula (Trump) desires greater dominance in the world.

You and I are already being programmed to see Iran and North Korea as enemies with monsters as their leaders (remember Iraq/Saddam and Libya/Gaddafi?).  We are being groomed to be blindly patriotic prior to the coming confrontations.

2018 intensity begins early this year.

Winter 2018 Eclipse Season begins on January 15 at the Capricorn New Moon, to be followed by  two eclipses: A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo on January 31 and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.

These eclipses are directly opposite the signs and degrees of the eclipses last August, and as such will counter those energies as well as provide a continuance of what happened during that time.

North Korea, Syria, Charlottesville were in the world spotlight then. Trump’s growing influence over world affairs was becoming more and more obvious.

And this new Eclipse Season, which will end in early March, will not only bring back the issues of North Korea, the Middle East, and culture wars in the USA; it will also show us some strong backlash against the Trump administration.

Will that mean impeachment proceedings begin or begin to look more immanent?  I will look more closely at all this in a 2018 Forecast Video and a 2018 Podcast, which will hopefully begin a series of “radio shows” this new year.

2018 will show the Trump agenda growing, while at the same time there is a growing anti-Trump movement.

And many people will focus their energies on their own consciousness and belief systems, while at the same time wanting to co-create the New World and Age.

Those people will see truth more deeply beyond the programming, and will experience the connections by hooking into the powerful frequencies of Love that will be growing in our energy fields and souls. Magic, meaning, synchronicity, and the Universe’s signs and symbols will be available to those who are awakening beyond the brick walls of the old paradigm.

From that place new communities are building,  communities devoted to Age of Aquarius values.  Fear and hatred do not rule that new age. Truth and Love do.

So this week, the first week of 2018 begins with a Full Moon in Capricorn/Cancer at 9:25 PM EST on New Year’s Day, combined with the energies of Uranus which changes to Direct motion on January 2. And of course all planets Direct in motion.

So there will be feelings of new beginnings, greater than the usual feeling of new year beginnings.

But I do not mean New Year alcohol inspired mania. I mean feelings of breaking out and breaking through, of liberation from what holds you back.  And for many this means true desires to be free of the old ways, old patterns, stuck lives, and old paradigm.

Use this Full Moon and especially Uranus to see outside the boxes, and to see the changes you can make this year.

This New Year’s Day Full Moon has the Sun in Capricorn opposite the Moon in Cancer.

So your accomplishment world outlook and your personal world in-look will be counter to one another.  Can you now balance your work and career with family and home?  Which one needs more of your attention now?

The one that needs more attention will create events to force you to focus on it.  But remember that Uranus is strong now too, so you can go outside the usual boxes in order to find new ways to be.

You do not need to be victim to the  old family patterns or old inner stuck thinking  or feeling.

And you can now begin to liberate your self from work or career that keeps you imprisoned in old ways. Start making plans for how you will lead a life more attuned to your authentic self and a more meaningful life.

Since this is Sun in Capricorn time of year, making a plan to make the needed changes is a good way to proceed.

Later this week, Mars in Scorpio will make conjunction with Jupiter in Scorpio.  Though exact next Saturday January 6, you may experience that very intense energy a few days  before and after the actual conjunction.

There is much passion in this conjunction, and of course passion can be used positively and negatively.  If you find passion for living your life, that is positive; but some will instead get into big eruptions of emotion.

And even then perhaps that is needed to express what you have been holding in, which will hopefully clear the air between people.  Or perhaps your passion will help you to empower your self in ways that are necessary to your growth and evolution.

And in the world, events with conflict eruptions become more likely.

In your personal life and with your emotions,  stay aware of this volatile energy below the surface.   You may then be more able to sidestep ugly blowups that will only be destructive.

So this first week of 2018 will initiate us into the new year.  If you stay aligned with your Higher Self leading your way, that will set the tone for this new year.

And yes Mercury is firmly direct now, giving us more potential clarity and less breakdowns of machinery and technology.

And with all planets now Direct, there is less need to reflect and ponder, or to make excuse for staying stuck.

till next week

Endings and Astrology Forecast December 10-16.

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving downward, inward and yin-ward this week as we experience the waning last quarter of the lunar cycle.

Overnight from the 7th into the 8th of December, the Sun in Sagittarius squares the Moon in Virgo.  That begins the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the Scorpio New Moon on November 18.

Then on December 18 that lunar cycle ends at the usually uplifting Sagittarius New Moon. 

Later that week, on the 21st,  the darkest day of the year brings us to the return of more light on Winter Solstice.

Then on December 22 Mercury goes back Direct. 

So the week of the 18th brings a much needed turning point of new beginnings and a deeper sense that the glass of life is half full, not half empty.

The celebration of the birth of new hope that week extends its reach to Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve and day.

In contrast, this week December 10- 16, continues the drop into darker days and feelings.

The process of transformation shows us shedding the skins of the old Chapter of our consciousness and life.   And that process also shows us the light of our new world, the birth of a new way.

As we shed old skins we can feel the truth of death, carried by the coffin of our old ways, beliefs, and life.

The dark phase of the last quarter moon;  the last phase of the darkening solar light before Winter Solstice;  the last part of Mercury Retrograde, and the last part of 2017 all come together now.

The past may be flashing before your eyes now, allowing you to say goodbye, to grieve, and to purge and release.

As you look out into the dramas of our society, know that there is not only an old year and old chapter dying, but an over 2,000 year old Age is coming to an end too.

The dysfunctional and toxic old paradigm beliefs encourage us to see everything in win/lose, perpetrator/victim, predator/prey, survival of the fittest , “get what you can for you and yours” ways.

As we learn to truly listen to each other from our open minds and hearts, while at the same time holding our own integrity and values, we come out of that old programmed paradigm. Finding the connections lights our new path.

Open minds search for truth, each person’s truth, and thus the potential for some kind of agreement.  Open hearts have love guiding them to the threads of connection between everyone and everything.

And self acceptance, self honoring, self worth, self love, and self empowerment, allows each of us to be the best we can be in all endeavors and relationships. It also helps us to not give ourselves away as a sacrifice to the worst in others.  Self loathing enables the worst behavior in others.

Evolution will not be stopped. The dinosaurs among us are screaming and fighting to be able to live in the old ways, and take me and you with them.

We enable them if we stay in awe of those who have celebrity, wealth, and privilege.

Donald Trump show us the results of keeping that old belief system of some being superior to those who must be their inferiors.  And of course those superiors deserve the privileges of having more too.

The cream does not rise to the top of that old world, the crud does.

Release, release, release this week; surrender to the Universe and your soul’s wisdom. Let it end, whatever needs to end.  Do not hold onto any security blankets that keep you clinging to what you no longer really need anymore.

Trust that the Soul’s and Universe’s process will bring the birth light at the right time and in the right way.

This week, as we move down into more endings in the last quarter of the lunar cycle with Mercury still Retrograde; we also experience Mars leaving Libra and entering Scorpio on the 9th.

It will stay in Scorpio till January 26, just before the first of two eclipses, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo.

As Mars leaves Libra for Scorpio, voices and attempts at temperance and civility will be less respected and heard in much of the greater world.

More hawkish elements of our governments will want to dominate more.   Power struggles will get more fierce.  Remember the best of Mars in Scorpio is power serving a greater cause.  And love is the greatest cause.

Stay in your loving heart.  Empower yourself from that place. That brings a power that can change the world in the best of ways.

And in early 2018, as the next Eclipse Season opens up new portals of truth and love for those aligned and centered to receive; waves of change will be larger and encompass more.

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15 will bring a strong wave of the Age of Aquarius through community uprisings and attempts to overthrow those in power who are leading us backwards.  Impeachment voices should be getting much stronger then.

Administration attempts to distract our attention through world conflicts will be stronger then too.

Jerusalem has been added to the Koreas as a world hot spot.    Trump stating that Jerusalem is the sole capital of Israel is inflaming so much of the Arab and Muslim world.

Countries in the Middle East and all over the world are picking sides now.  World conflict is inevitable now.

The chaos will bring with it more ability to release and purge, more openings for the new world to come through.

The old programming is leaving the consciousness of each of us and though it has given us a distorted sense of security, it has also brought damage to our hearts and souls, our free minds and spirits, our sense of connections with each other and all life.

Our spiritual potential will get stronger and stronger, as will creative power, magic, and synchronicity,

New voices and leaders will emerge.  The Age of Aquarius will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes of our old paradigm and Age.

As you release and let go this week, keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde. It is Ok now to question what you have already chosen and the direction you are moving in, but do not act on that yet.

Wait till after the 22nd when it goes back Direct, and wait for the turning points later this year that will shift your perception to life’s half full viewpoint.

till next week,

Leo
