By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move into the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Gemini on June 3.

The 4th quarter begins on Tuesday the 25th with the Moon in Aries square the Sun in Cancer.

So even though we enter the usually winding down quarter of the lunar cycle, the Aries Moon is wanting us to take some kind of action or at least to begin to empower ourselves in some way.

The 4th quarter of a lunar cycle is also about releasing, gathering, and preparing for the turn into the new beginnings of a new lunar cycle at the new moon.

And since the New Moon will be one on steroids, because it is a New Moon Solar Eclipse, the getting ready time has more intensity and importance than the usual  4th quarter of the lunar cycle.

Before the 4th quarter begins, however, Venus makes some significant moves.

On the 23rd Venus opposes Jupiter, a day before it squares Neptune. So there is some processing around relationship issues that needs to be addressed before the 4th quarter gathering, cleaning, and releasing.

This relationship processing is partly about getting a bigger picture view of relationship and how it fits into your life now.  What are your priorities now?  How much emphasis does your relationship and/or family have for you in contrast to your sense of life purpose?

Life will intensify appreciably beginning next week, as we then experience a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on Tuesday July 2. And 5 days later Mercury goes Retrograde on July 7. It will stay Retrograde until July 31.

And the second eclipse will be experienced while Mercury is still Retrograde, as it is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn on July 16.

That Lunar Eclipse on July 16 will at 24+ degrees of Cancer/Capricorn. That means both Saturn (17 degrees Capricorn) and Pluto (22 degrees Capricorn) will be in the signature of the Lunar Eclipse.

That adds intensity and meaning to the eclipse, but also makes everything feel more real, substantive, and transformational.  Our ideas and desires to transform our world, which has been stirring for many years for many of us, now gets more real than ever.

It is time to get our hands dirty and contribute to this world in transitional crisis. Coming events will demand us to do this.

This Summer Eclipse Season, though powerful in itself, is just an appetizer for the main meal in January 2020 when Saturn and Pluto are exactly conjunct during another set of powerful eclipses.

The Cancer/Capricorn sign emphasis for both Eclipse Seasons, show us the need to balance the Father archetype (Capricorn) with the Mother archetype (Cancer).

Capricorn respects what you do, while Cancer respects who you are. Capricorn is more outer directed and Cancer more inner directed.

So we are getting ourselves ready to find a new balance between these differing societal values.

And in our culture here in the USA, there is a culture war going on between Cancerian Liberal values and Capricorn Conservative values.  These two different sides have little connection between them nowadays.

Of course in a healthy world they join in union like a yin/yang symbol. But now they are  largely at war in our society.

In general Women are getting more empowered and speaking their minds, and Men are learning to be more sensitive, empathic, and understanding.

As we as a culture are just learning to do these things, we are in many cases getting further apart from one another.

But we will join again in a more healthy and connected union (yin/yang symbol).

The real work is internal, where each of us needs to find both a healthy male and healthy female inside ourselves.

Carl Jung said that men had an inner woman (anima) and women had an inner man (animus).  The condition of a man’s anima can be seen in the women he attracts to himself; and the state of a woman’s animus is reflected by the men she attracts to herself. And of course this changes through the years, as one develops a more healthy and integrated gender balance.

And of course now in our world, the whole idea of gender identification is changing, making the process more complicated.

But the point is that the inner work is so important now around gender balancing.

Women seem be ahead of men in gender balancing as society puts out a greater stigma against men integrating their “feminine” side.

Men must pick up the slack now, and get over rigid ideas of what it is to be a man.

So with this Cancer/Capricorn emphasis now, we will be challenged to integrate male and female in new ways.

The war between men and women now, or between conservative and liberal, is ridiculous and self destructive to our human family. Time for us all to grow up.

And events in the world will challenge us to grow and evolve, as these events get more and more challenging

There was almost a war ignited between the USA and Iran this last week over a large tin can of a USA drone being struck down as it supposedly entered Iranian space.

Trump did stop the attack dogs from attacking, but that conflict is far from over.

Remember Trump is a Sun in Gemini, and as such the twins have very different ways of being.

Geminis often have a “good person” voice whispering in one ear, as a “bad person” voice whispers in the other ear.

So Trump gives word to attack and then changes his Gemini mind.

Next week when the eclipses begin, we shall see what happens then.

Next week we will look at the Solar Eclipse New Moon and how it may affect the candidates and their natal charts. Next week are the first debates for presidential candidates. We will also begin to analyze the charts and chances to be president for the main candidates in the race next week.

Till next week,

Leo

Rushing River of Change and Astrology Forecast June 9-15.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 8, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week on Sunday/Monday the Moon in Virgo makes a square with the Sun in Gemini.  This makes for a half Moon lit up in the Sky, beginning the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle.  That cycle began on June 3 at the New Moon in Gemini.

Of course this Gemini lunar cycle shows us the importance of communication, yet also shows us the importance of having an open mind that is filled more with questions than answers.

So in your personal life it is aligned now to open your mind up to more possibilities and ideas, instead of closed minded surety of your opinion and ways.

It is also fortuitous now to be present and to make a strong effort to be present in relationships as a true listener.

As a couples’s counselor, I sometimes witness people who believe that if their intentions are good they have done no wrong in what they say or do to others.

Not true! It is most important to truly be aware of how a person will receive what you are communicating. That is one reason that it is important to ask questions so you know where the other person stands in their emotions and thoughts.

Most people in relationship get really concentrated in defending their position and in “winning” the argument.

Really healthy relationships have each person in the relationship having empathy for what the other person believes or feels.  This does not mean sacrificing your needs or opinions to keep the other person happy.

You can be solid in being true to yourself, while at the same time having a true understanding of the other person, their needs and desires.

When each person honors their own self and sovereignty , they are in a potentially healthy position to honor and respect the other person too.  Win/Win is the goal which can be attained most always in most situations.

As the second quarter Moon in Virgo passes through late this weekend, there is the potential for nervous energy, anxiety, and obsessive thinking.   Both Virgo and Gemini are ruled by the planet Mercury.  Mercury operates in the brain/mind and through the nervous system and spine.

Yes it is a prime time for analyzing, logical thought, and information gathering and expressing.   But I am pretty sure you do not want to be in mental overload or obsessive thought, pushing for answers and solutions.

Sunday/Monday, while the Moon is in Virgo, there is an aspect that will offset the monkey mind.

Neptune in Pisces will be in a challenging square to that Sun in Gemini and Moon in Virgo.  Neptune, mythic god of the ocean, does not do well with left brain needs to mentally “figure it out”.

Instead it seeks and expresses the more flowing energies of music, metaphor, art, meditation and connection with everyone and everything. It is best to surrender to the “Kingdom Within” when Neptune is strong.

So it is best now, with the left brain and right brain in battle with one another, to allow the process to unfold without much stress from pushing an agenda, or needing to be right.

Late in the week Mars makes several aspects that should give us a preview of coming attractions.  Mars in Cancer this week trines Neptune, opposes Saturn and gets closer (next week) to an opposition to Pluto.

And all this is connected to where Saturn and Pluto will be for their January 2020 conjunction with one another as another Eclipse Season rolls in.

That is an important time period for our human family, and perhaps some clues from the Universe will soon show us what is coming to our personal and collective lives. Look for the symbols and their messages and synchronicities.  What wants to die and what needs to be born?

From this Summer Eclipse Season that begins at the Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 17, to the Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020; there will be important events, breakthroughs, liberations, revelations and enlightenments.  There will also be disillusions, heartaches, and life challenges.

As a human family we are moving back to, and forward to the purity of the Universe with its pillars of Love and Truth. When each of us is mainly connected to Love and Truth, all else will eventually fall into place.

Look at our world now-  false news is everywhere. It can be really difficult to sift through all the information and opinion to find truth.

And look at the status of love shown out in the world.  Relationships are dominated by struggles for power and control, and negotiating for getting what one wants.  Love brings grace with it and desires for win/win.  Without sufficient Love, we bargain for what we want all the time, and pretty consistently look for wins at the expense of the losers.

This is fine in sports or other contests, but is it right, healthy and satisfying for the rest of our lives too?

Saturn/Pluto is close now to conjunction (only 3 degrees apart) and will stay close during this approaching Summer 2019 Eclipse Season.

In January 2020 they will be exactly conjunct at 22+ degrees of Capricorn- one day after the Cancer Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 20 degrees Capricorn/Cancer- so close to Saturn/Pluto. And Uranus changes direction to Direct then also.

All that is why we are presenting a class and talk on Saturn/Pluto, which will include the eclipses. Class is on Saturday June 22 at noon and lasting till 4:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time. We will be deeply discussing world affairs, the Presidential race and potential impeachment, and most importantly the changes of  consciousness and lifestyles needed to adapt to the Age of Aquarius. In that process we will look at individual charts also to find where the Eclipses and Saturn/Pluto reside in your life and chart.

How might that affect your life? We still have some openings in the class. Write me at soulus@aol.com for more info and to sign up to attend.

This year’s Summer Eclipse Season rapidly approaches now. The Full Moon on the 17th brings the first strong winds of change. The 21st brings in Summer Solstice with a strong Neptune changing directions. Then July 2 brings us the first eclipse: A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer that also shows us Saturn and Pluto closing in on one another.

Keep an eye out for world events that will open the portals for new light pouring through for our consciousness and lives.

Be open to change in your own life too.  This time period resembles the ’60s and ’70s, when change was overwhelming at times. But it felt so good to have the old status-quo corruptions, injustices, and power abuses challenged and  transformed.

And now we experience the next great wave of transformation. Let go of the shore and allow the river of evolutionary change take you, and bring you to a world of personal purpose and meaning.

Till next week,

Leo

Truth and Lies and Astrology forecast June 2-8

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 1, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

There is a New Moon in Gemini on Monday June 3 at 6:02 AM EDT.  On June 2 we are under a dark Moon, and that will also be true on the day of that New Moon in Gemini on the 3rd.

In fact new moons, signifying new beginnings, do not really start until we can see a sliver of lunar light.  That will be no later than the evening of June 4.

During dark moons, it is usually a prime time to meditate with affirmations and/or visualizations, to make strong intention of whatever is important to you at the time.

This New Moon in Gemini shows us a good time for giving, attending, creating, and planning for classes, webinars, workshops etc.  It is also a good time for reading and studies.

Gemini is “ruled” by Mercury, called the messenger of the gods; so Gemini time periods are about working with issues of communication.  Gemini loves words, so for most Gemini’s writing and talking are very important to them.

Gemini is an air sign, and as such it is in the head a lot , concentrating  on thinking and figuring out.  Air signs are also often social butterflies, seeking light and care free social interactions.  Gemini is the air sign most like that butterfly who goes from flower to flower, more so than the other two air signs Libra and Aquarius.

And Gemini needs many interests, and being that way motivates many of them to go from one thing to another,  even one thought to another, or one person to another.

When they are in their normal rhythm they are light and airy, effortlessly delivering information to others and bringing in new information too.  They are fact based and detail oriented.

The challenge for many Gemini’s is to slow down or stop the “monkey mind”, especially during meditation. It can get overwhelmed with information being collected in its mind.

It loves a good mental challenge, and curiosity is one of its motivations for learning new things. It is the questioner, and it is in its default nature to question most everything.  Sometimes that means it is challenging someone’s information or opinion, but sometimes it is just geared to ask questions for no deeper reason.

So now as we move through the Gemini New Moon this week, it is a good time to think about classes, learnings, friendships, starting something intellectually stimulating, reading a new book, or getting up the courage to speak up and communicate what is on your mind. Gemini does not usually like emotional confrontations, however.

Not long after  this New Moon in Gemini, Congress will question AG Barr and/or special prosecutor Mueller, and others in preparation for impeachment.

The Military/Industrial Complex foundation is showing immense cracks, ready at any time to begin to crumble.

The stock market went way down last week, and war cries against Iran got much stronger.  The USA trade war with China and Mexico heated up last week, as did their war of words with China on other subjects. And North Korea is back up in the Empire’s consciousness as it shows increasing animosity for the USA administration.

I say all this to show you that over the next 9 months or so, Pandora’s Box will break open with some major world event(s), ones that will change the world.

Intensity increases during an Eclipse Season,  and this one will have its first breezes of change after this New Moon in Gemini.

The first actual eclipse will be on July 2,  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer at 10+ degrees.  The 2nd eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn at 24+ degrees.

But the most powerful shake-up will occur late Autumn 2019, early  Winter 2020.  It is a huge turning point for the world. That Eclipse Season will open The Box if not yet opened.

Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn will make its only exact conjunction in January 2020, the day after a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon as Uranus goes direct that day also.  (Webinar I am giving on June 22 will talk about all that, the powerful changes in the world as a result, and a look at each participant’s chart to see how they may each be affected in their own personal life.  Noon-4:30 $120.) Write me at soulus@aol.com to sign up.

There is no way anymore that we can put bandaids on the big issues and conflicts.  They are all coming to a head, so to speak.  There are so many enlightening waves of energy filled with hope and the magic of Universal signs and synchronicities under the rock solid box of an old world’s status quo. That box is breaking open soon and dark and light will all be released together for each of us to sort through in our consciousness.  The Age of Aquarius is a creation made from it all.

This week with the New Moon in Gemini, new information will begin to make itself known.   Facts greater than all the lies and fabrications will be available to those aligned and looking for truth.

Neptune is square to the New Moon in Gemini, so there will some confusion and distortions to work through.  If you can let go and surrender your left brain need to obsessively get to the logical truth, what you need to know will unfold itself and present itself when you are ready to receive.

Each media source operates more from an agenda than from a desire for the facts and truth.   Julian Assange represents someone who has worked to get the truth of what our governments and authorities hide from “we the people”.

These “authorities” are trying to silence him or put him away. He now is extremely sick and maybe even dying. He represents freedom of the press and its duty to deliver us truth beyond the programming. Now each of us must be responsible to find these truths for ourselves.

Look closely and deeply this month for what is true and what is not, and do not let your political persuasion influence you.  This Gemini lunar cycle is mainly about the facts and communication of them. Next month the Eclipses shake things up and out of same-old, same-old.

Till next week

Leo

Deeper and Deeper and Astrology Forecast March 3-9.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 2, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shit has certainly hit the proverbial fan out in the world.  The old world is purging out its debris for all to see.

Trump meeting with Kim Jong Un did not go as hyped for.   Congressional hearings with Michael Cohen gave out ugly info about Trump that tears his character apart.    Pakistan and India are macho strutting around with nuclear weapons, with all humanity put in danger.

This is all coming out not long after a most intense Eclipse Season earlier this year.  Now in the waning half of the lunar cycle that has followed that Eclipse Season, we are wading through what has been not so graciously excreted into the world.

We are needing to more and more concentrate on the New World we are sensing and creating, growing out from what is being purged.

Death and Birth are constant realities here on the Earth plane.  And now we are in the midst of a huge death of a Pisces Age, over 2000 years old.

And at the same time, we are birthing a new golden Age of Aquarius, which will last 2,160 years.

Can you see what is here now as we let go the past, and let in the new? Both Dark and Light are stronger than ever.

The power of the Feminine is growing and so needed now.  I see a powerful black woman, a Sophia like entity growing stronger and stronger behind the veils of our dying world.

She is most able to deal with humanity through this death while at the same time able to mid-wife the new world into being.

And the growing Feminine is obvious now in the political world, as young and strong women of color are speaking out.  They know the need to purge old ways and build new ones that will serve more and more people in our country and world. The Dark Feminine can hold with compassion those dying souls, and open the way for Birth.

Remember, however, that those from the old world are not the enemy, though it sure feels like it sometimes.

Conservative is merely a desire to hold onto what has been before.  And some of it needs to be looked at before being abandoned.  Are late term abortions really OK? Is it really OK to let everyone into the country without rules?  I think these issues need to be examined, not put so squarely into left and right boxes.

Some conservative ways and beliefs hold onto what is needed from our past. We do not want to throw out the baby with the bath water, so to speak.

And both neo-cons (new conservatives) and neo-libs (new liberals) are wanting conflicts in Venezuela and Syria.  We need to get outside those boxes and speak loudly for no more war, no more fixing other countries into what we want them to be, and no more nukes in our world.

Time to continue together to envision our new world, transform our consciousness in its essence,  and fight for what we believe in,  not against anything or anyone.

Keep meditating and being with others who also know this new world inside.  All is inside first, as we visualize the new world as it will be.

Let the Universe (Source) into your meditations to help co-create this New Age. It is sitting in the inner planes waiting for you to connect to.

This week brings a major shift, as Mercury goes Retrograde just before the New Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune.

Mercury goes Retrograde on Tuesday March 5 at 1:19 PM EST. 

The New Moon in Pisces is on Wednesday March 6 at 11:04 AM EST.   It is especially important and influential as it is closely conjunct Neptune in Pisces and square Jupiter in Sagittarius. 

Expect there to be much confusion and potential chaos, whose purpose is to shake us out of old thinking and old habits.

This is also a potentially a very spiritual combination, one that will help us to let go into the soul world of  connections, synchronicities, signs and symbol from the Universe.

The prerequisite for these experiences is to let go of fears, stuck attitudes and beliefs, and a hatred of the “enemy”.

Sure it can be healthy and empowering to be angry at injustice, unfairness, and ignorance; but hatred toward those who perpetrate those things creates ugly self defeating energy.  Use that energy to fight for what you believe in and the world you want to create.

So Mercury Retrograde may be even more confusing or unsettling than usual, as the Pisces/Neptune effect is so strong too.

Do not push hard to get things done, get an answer, quick-fix anyone or anything,  or rush through some strict agenda.

Stay present, do not panic, do not rush to judgement.

Your mind is wanting to shift its perceptions now, and in the process may want to question your previous thinking, decisions, or promises.  Remember what is going on planetarily, and trust the process. Let this lunar cycle and Mercury Retrograde play out over the next month.

After April 5th or so, direction will be more clear and passages forward will open up.

Use this coming month to go deeper in consciousness, to get more clarity from signs in dreams and waking dreams.

Use the Pisces vibe to gain empathy for others, to better understand your partners, lovers, family members, friends, and especially so-called enemies.

Pisces teaches us that all is connected in unity, at a soul level of being. And it is the soul level of being that infuses us all with energy for connection with one another.

Do not live in a Pisces “dream world” of being naïve, however.  Be discriminating about what energy from others you are taking into your heart and soul.

You do not need to judge anyone it is true, but it is also important not to let in what will hurt you or disempower you. Some people can be so wounded, desperate, and ill on a soul level.  Yes have empathy, but do not stay with them too long. This goes for family and romantic partners too.

Especially now it is important to be as “clean” as possible, and to release old wounds and traumas in the process.

Neptune is the most influential planetary energy now, and it is a great healing energy. It helps dissolve old ways and attitudes, bring forgiveness, helps heal old wounds between people.

Surrender more this week to the Soul and Spirit realm, let go of left brain logic,  which will not work as well as usual.

Expect people from your past to resurface now in dreams and real life.

This next month is not good for big decisions, starting big projects, pushing for answers, pushing for anything.

Up ahead is Spring Equinox on March 20, Mercury Direct on March 28, and New Moon in Aries on April 5.  Before then we are processing, using imagination and intuition, facing ghosts of our past, and doing deep healing.

Till next week,

with Truth and Love,

Leo

Breaking Away and Astrology Forecast February 10-16

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 10, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we passed through the New Moon in Aquarius this last week, we effectively put an end to Winter Eclipse Season 2019.

This coming week, still “climbing upward” through the waxing half of the current lunar cycle, we experience a powerful and liberating planetary combination of Mars conjunct Uranus at the last degree of Aries (29+ degrees).

Last week, after the Aquarius New Moon on the 4th, the first winds of this Mars/Uranus conjunction were blowing in.

Events, that are a direct result of the recent eclipses, will be ready to enter our world, both personal and collective.  The next few months will be filled up with important and life changing wake-up calls and motivations to push our lives forward.

The Mars/Uranus conjunction, which we began experiencing last week, brought many difficulties in relationships.  Mars/Uranus in Aries is very independence minded, action oriented, and motivates one to be true to Self sometimes at all costs.

Any boxes you are in, especially boxes that have severely limited your independence and freedom, will want to break open.  Action that you have been putting off will be triggered for movement forward.  Relationships that have tried your patience and your ability to retain compassion, will be severely tested.

Desires for liberation and “breaking out” will open up more in each of us.

And any boxes you have been pushed into or pushed yourself into will be cracking open.

This Uranus/Mars conjunction is exact on the 12th, overnight into the 13th; but its effects will be felt all week long.

You may be challenged to be empathetic in relationships, as this Mars/Uranus conjunction tends toward the needs of Self more than “others”.

Co-dependence and relationship patterns that enable people to stay stuck, will be threatened as well.

This conjunction happens at 29+ degrees of Aries, so it triggers by trine the important Total Solar Eclipse (that travelled across the USA) in August 2017.

Remember the passion for war between North Korea and the USA then? Remember the violence in Charlottesville Virginia that month, violence that felt like the American Civil War in the late 1800’s? This had a strong racial element to  it, with marches by KKK and neo nazi’s.

Now this month there is a second meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un; and Virginia has been facing racial issues with its Governor this month.

But there is another conflict going on that is not directly related to those issues, but is beginning to have the same passion for war. It is not so much with North Korea yet, but with Venezuela now.

Venezuela has the world’s largest supply of oil reserves and is a weak country militarily.  It is now in the crosshairs of the USA military as it is going through a coup attempt against its elected President Maduro.

The USA and some European countries are firmly backing the opposition leader who has already declared himself the new president. This is obviously an attempt to control Venezuela, as was previously done in many countries by the USA and other colonialist nations.

And most recently Iraq, Syria, and Libya have been invaded or helped to destabilize by the USA.

Phony reasons for invasion are made up, like WMDs in Iraq, chemical attacks by Syrian government in Syria, etc.

Now some countries will claim to be saviors for the Venezuela people.   Many new leaders in the USA see this old pattern coming back up again and want no part of the regime change that is being set up by the USA and some western countries.

Besides the Total Solar Eclipse button being pushed by the Mars/Uranus conjunction this week, the USA natal Mars at 21+ degrees of Gemini is being opposed by Jupiter in Sagittarius now.

Important USA military and police actions have occurred when the USA Mars is activated.  And the assassinations of JFK and MLK both happened when that USA natal Mars was triggered.

Remember that the USA Military and Economic Empire is in the process of huge transformation now and through the early 2020’s.

In fact the USA natal Pluto in its 2nd house at almost 28 degrees of Capricorn (which symbolically is the Military/Industrial complex) is being activated by the square of the Mars/Uranus conjunction in Aries this week.

Israel, Syria, and North Korean planets are being activated by that Mars/Uranus conjunction now too. And Venezuela’s Jupiter and Pluto are being triggered by the Jupiter transit this week.

In May/June this year Jupiter, accompanied by Mars in Gemini, will again hit that same 21+ degree of Gemini.

Whatever happens this week, and overall in February, will give us strong clues of what will happen in the near future to the Military/Industrial Complex of the USA.

This means big transformation in this New Chapter of life, on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortex, who is growing by leaps and bounds after being elected to the USA House of Representatives, is attempting with others to present a New Deal for the future USA.

She and other House leaders put out a new Green Deal, which shows the potential for combating Climate Change, providing health and education for all Americans. And part of the solution is presented as higher taxes for the wealthiest of people.

Some inclusion of Socialism in the USA is said to be needed to make the New Green Deal work.

And it is no mere coincidence that Venezuela is categorized as being a socialist country, as we prepare to tear it down.

Europe already has health care for all, and we in the USA already have “socialistic” programs like Medicare, and government funded public schools, police departments and fire departments.

Transformation is expanding and accelerating.  In December 2020, at the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, we will find an open portal to the Age of Aquarius.

This is only a month or so past the Presidential Election in November 2020.

Much will change before then, in our world and in our personal lives.

This week there is the Mars/Uranus conjunction, then the next day Mars leaves Aries and enters Taurus, where it will stay till late March.

Mars in Taurus will make what has been opening up for us real, grounded, and solid. It brings the energy of manifestation.

Let the energies of liberation, truth telling, independence, and self-concern into your life strongly this week.  But stay aware of your relationships too.  Do not “throw the baby out with the bath water”.

Do your best to preserve healthy relationships. Instead of abandoning those relationships, try instead letting go of the old dynamics and patterns that have been harming your relationships.

We are ready now to go forward toward our new normal, having lost sight of the old normal. It has been difficult for many lately- being in this kind of purgatory or limbo.

But now energies are accelerating for real change and movement forward.  Hitch a ride.

See you next week,

Leo

New Moon in Aquarius and Astrology Forecast February 3-9

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on February 2, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this week’s forecast, we are still in Eclipse Season.   That ends at the New Moon in Aquarius on Monday February 4 at 4:04 PM EST.

But now as I write, I can certainly feel the soul of the darkening Moon.

We have been through a very powerful and challenging Eclipse Season; and now as we grieve for what we are letting go of,  we may also be unsure what is ahead of us now.

If you are having difficulty making decisions, or choosing the right path, or even knowing what direction to move toward, you have much company in our human family.

What is going on in the greater world is also quite confusing for many.  World events have been showing us that what used to be considered normal, is very elusive and difficult to grab onto anymore.

That “old normal” is leaving us, and that alone can get us feeling insecurities, sadness, and grief for a time period that is beginning to disappear in our life’s rear view mirror.

The Trump era is breaking down old reliable institutions, old ways of relating to other nations and cultures, and old agreements (like on Climate Change,  and nuclear weapon production ).

The stock market has become quite volatile and unpredictable.  The USA government is now in long term shutdown.  An old and important agreement with Iran has been discarded. We are apparently pulling out of old military stances in Syria and Afghanistan. The Presidential administration is in chaos and run by an obviously narcissistic and unpredictable President.

Our relationships with China and Russia are quite arguably worse than they have been recently.  Mass murders seem to happen much more than before.  The Arab and Muslim worlds are growing farther and farther apart from Western nations.

Fear is all around our collective energy fields, ready to be absorbed by anyone who wants to partake.

Yes we can be quite confused on what to do and where to go in our personal lives too, as they are a microcosm to the macrocosm or our greater world.

The Universe is getting us all prepared for our new world and its challenges, by helping us to release old patterns, old belief systems, old habits, old relationships or jobs that no longer resonate with our true and authentic self.

Our changing consciousness is the most important of all. Old programming and conditioning by culture, religion, family and corporate state, from days gone by, do not serve us now.

And planetary events, like at this last Eclipse Season, mean to speed up the process of growth and help us to transform our minds and hearts into the energies and intents of the Age of Aquarius.

But now right after the eclipses there is some unbalance, confusion, and fear to deal with. Many feel held back from jumping in. But a turning point nudges us forward this week.

The New Moon in Aquarius on the 4th of February is a boost forward for our lives.  

It would be good in the two or three days surrounding that new moon, to meditate and make strong intentions, in relationship with the Universe.

We may not know exactly where we are going, but we can trust the process, trust ourselves, and trust the Universe now.  We can do this for our personal lives, but also for the world now.

I do not believe we can avoid some really difficult days ahead in America and western civilization.  The Military/Industrial (economic) Complex that President Eisenhower warned would endanger our democracy, is making a prophet out of that President.

And so the Military and Economy will need to humble “themselves”,  be transformed, and lose Empire status.

Major conflict and major economic challenges are ahead, as is more culture war between differing American cultures, as happened in the Civil War 1860-1865.

The Middle East is a tinder box now, close to exploding.

Important planetary movements to the planets in the natal charts of the USA and Israel will trigger big events in those countries soon

In the USA natal chart , Pluto in Capricorn in its second house will see many powerful triggers to it over the next few years.

Pluto will experience its first ever Pluto Return in 2021-2022, while at almost the same time both Saturn and Jupiter will be making conjunction with that same natal USA Pluto.

The USA Pluto in its second house is representative of the Military/Industrial complex.

Uranus has been squaring the USA Pluto in 2017, 2018, 2019. Pluto returns to itself in 2021/22.  Jupiter and Saturn conjunct it in 2020-21.

So you can see how powerfully this will be- a big overhaul of the system, and a downgrade of the Empire.

And this is all part of the opening of a portal into the Age of Aquarius.

Add Jupiter conjunct Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius in December 2020, and we have the ingredients that will help us put our toes into the Age of Aquarius. That does not mean all will be perfectly Aquarian Age then, not at all.

But nevertheless, whatever darkness surrounds us then will have huge beams of light penetrating that darkness and lighting our way forward on the New Age Path.

This week has the Aquarius New Moon on February 4. That will get our mojo beginning to purr.

Then the themes of Aquarius will follow, so we will be “persuaded” to leave our heart’s desires to be seen as special and popular, and instead be pulled more toward our head’s intention to stay with idealistic notions of diverse but equal in value.  Making contribution to community or favorite group or organization may be “in the cards” for some of us.

Uranus is the “ruling” planet of Aquarius. It was discovered in 1781, around the time of two revolutions: USA and France.

These revolutions were motivated by desires to replace royalty with democracy and power to the people.

Uranus/Aquarius highly values individual freedom and liberation from that which chains us.

It is the anti-ego sign, seeing all as equals and seeing strength in community and groups.

Even though it is anti-ego, it highly values distinct individuality and uniqueness.

Aquarius also highly values social consciousness, and is very sensitive to culture and group thinking and action.

If a Leo and Aquarius both went shopping for a car, the Leo would tend to want the shiny car that made its heart sing and be a popular model.

Aquarius would want the car that got good mileage and was good for the environment and was from a dealership that was a co-op in community.

After this Aquarius New Moon, the lights go back on again and we strive to move forward, even if we do not totally know where we are going.

And with so many not feeling secure in the changing winds swirling all around, the message is to let go of needs to have absolute answers and direction.

There are coming events that will need to show up before we know what to do and where to go.

The New Moon in Aquarius will open the gates for events that are resulting from what shook up during Eclipse Season.

Be on your toes for change, as it is coming whether we are perfectly “in shape” for it or not.

After the Storms and Astrology Forecast January 27- February 2

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on January 27, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move into the 4th and final quarter of the lunar cycle that began on January 5 at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.

This last quarter phase of the Moon begins on Sunday January 27 in Scorpio.   It signifies a winding down from the intensity of Eclipse Season,  a season that will effectively end on February 4 at the Aquarius New Moon.

For so many, this Eclipse Season has really shaken us out of our equilibrium and mental/emotional balance.

The “shaking up” puts us in a better position to be able to move with change and transformation

And the coming transformation will be immense, throwing us more fully into this New Chapter of our collective lives, on the way to an Age of Aquarius.

The “normal” that we were used to- no longer exists. A new normal has not been found yet.  Many are thus feeling an inner insecurity, and often when faced with making decisions cannot easily do so.

Look at the world we live in now.  The government had been shut down with both parties playing chicken with our lives.  Now a temporary opening of the government has begun, but it is rather tentative and weak.

And also during this Eclipse Season, it is getting more and more obvious that the Trump government is quite dysfunctional and on the highway to possible impeachment.

The USA government is showing signs of great decay, and though the stock market has been rising over the last few weeks, it will soon be travelling rapidly downward again, as it did last year.

The USA and world economy are going into slow-down movements and likely recession in 2019, which will eventually bring a revamped and transformed economy, hopefully one more fair to all.

The Cultural Divide has widened in America, and each side is quite angry and not seeing the value of the opposition’s viewpoint.

But there are many of us now who are seeing new ways, outside the boxes of black versus white, or yang versus yin or male versus female, so to speak.

This Eclipse Season has been showing me that really big changes are forthcoming soon.

The Military/Industrial Complex Empire is dying and is searching for new blood to drink to stay alive, maybe now in Venezuela where Western Governments are endorsing someone to be president who was not elected to be President of Venezuela.  Oh and by the way Venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world.

And some version of economy that includes some forms of socialism are on the way to our collective lives.

And it is getting more and more likely to me that some grand UFO/extraterrestrial event will come to our planet in a big way soon.

The point I am making, even if not all these events happen, is that our world is ready for a huge transformation. 10 years from now, when one looks back at today, it will be hardly recognizable.

AI will be  big part of that new world, robots will doing many jobs humans do now, and that will be a large part of this new economy on the way.

I learned this week that World War I and World War II both came on the heels of vast technological world changes, and that will likely happen again. Israel and the Middle East will be the catalysts.

This passing Eclipse Season feels like a huge turning point in our personal and collective lives.

This New Chapter we are all in now, has been pushed fast forward during that Eclipse Season.

Under the surface of our world, in unseen frequencies, much has changed during this Eclipse Season.

Those in other realms are helping us clear the way. Though it may feel scary sometimes, we are getting ready.

And now as we move through the last quarter of our lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse on January 5, we can go through the rubble from the eclipse storms and try to make sense of all that is shifting in our lives, as we prepare for the New Moon in Aquarius on February 4.

At the end of this week, Mars in Aries will square Pluto in Capricorn.

Expect the intensity level in our collective energy field and lives to increase with that aspect.  Powerful events are more likely than usual.

Then on Saturday February 2 is Imbolc, an annual sacred turning point. It is half way between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. It is what our conventional modern world calls Groundhog Day.

Imbolc was celebrated as a time of initiation, a time when one could be blessed on the way through a new life gateway.

It is time to sense the coming of Spring Equinox, only 6 or 7 weeks away.

The Chinese celebrate a New Year just after this Aquarius New Moon.  This coming year is the year of the Pig, an Earth Pig.

It is the last sign in that zodiac, so this coming year is a year of transition, saying goodbye to the last cycle and getting ready for the new cycle.

With Eclipse Season coming to a close this week, do not jump to any life conclusions. Let the process play out this week as we get ready for new beginnings at the Aquarius New Moon on February 5.

Events that are a direct result of what got shaken up during Eclipse Season will come out after the New Moon in Aquarius.

So much is unknown now, and we are at our best if we can respect the mystery of life now.  Best to let go of overly firm hands of control.

The ego will fight now to maintain control, but we are best yielding now to our “higher self” as it will leads us more gracefully forward.

Trust and Faith can greatly help our journey now. All is happening for a reason, all is in Divine Order.

Fear is our greatest enemy now. Love and Truth can lead our way if we so choose.

Enjoy the ride

Leo
