Letting Go of the Baggage and Astrology Forecast June 12-18

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Life is on hold until after Mars goes Direct on June 29. This does not mean you can do nothing in the interim;  it just means there is a feeling and reality that efforts to direct one’s attention to big steps forward are difficult if not impossible.

While we are waiting for the gate into a new phase of life to open, many of us are facing some real challenges. In fact for many their most sensitive and diffcults wounds or traumas have been triggered.

They are caught up in emotions that have been overwhelming their usual stable sanity.

Seems to me that we are cleaning up as much baggage as we can before we face new challenges and opportunities on the other side of the gate.

So go to your healers and counselors now to assist your journey or spend more time in meditation or spiritual practices now.

I know the world seems crazy now, but it is really a result of changing tides from one age to another.  We  are collectively and individually in transition and working to heal, release and let go of old tapes and conditioned programs in our heads and hearts.

On the contrary some of you are enjoying the ride into this new chapter of life.   Emotional baggage has not surfaced in any difficult way as of yet and the world’s troubles and confusions have not caught up to you yet.

But make no mistake, world craziness will accelerate soon, with important world events screaming for attention.

The Middle East will very soon erupt explosively, with emphasis on Israel, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, Iran, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia.

The political presidential landscape will get even crazier as scandals,  illegalities, corruptions, and secrets break out in the open.

Our global economy will face great challenges soon also.

At the same time protests and revolutionary energies and actions will increase exponentially.   Spritual enlightenment, synchronicites and awakenings will multiply.  People will have a much stronger sense of unity with their fellow human, as we all are motivated to change the world for the better.

The astrological reflection of this current change sits mainly with Saturn square Neptune which is good for this whole year but exact this week Friday the 17th of June.

As we have stated in previous forecasts,  Order and boundaries and status quo (Saturn) are challenged by disorder, open boundaries, confusion, chaos and change (Neptune).

We have mentioned immigration issues and redrawn state boundaries as part of this Saturn/Neptune process. And to add to this theme, later this month, Brits will be voting on staying or leaving the European Union.  That vote will greatly affect the economic stablity of Europe and beyond.

So much is changing, yet some like Donald Trump are wanting to turn back the clock  to the ’50s in America, before civil rights breakthroughs or globalism.

Do we need to stop to turn back the clock for awhile, or is it time to go further with revolutionary and evolutionary progress.

Voters in the United States will be letting us know their feelings on the matter come November.

In addition to Saturn/Neptune and Mars Retrograde, we are approaching Summer Solstice with a Full Moon joining it on June 20. We will talk more about that next week.

This week Neptune ( as it is squaring Saturn) changes directions to go retrograde on Monday the 13th.  This puts Neptune vibes in the psychic airwaves.  Neptunes is inner directed, aligned with the inner spiritual plane and rules psychic insights, insights in general,  fogginess and confusion, gentle poetic feelings, drugs, alcohol, chaos, and escapism.

If you are taking the Higher Self route of spiritual connection, it wil be best this week to let go and surrender to that which is greater, to trust the Universe, and to allow the process to play itself out without needs to control or dominate or think too much to figure it all out.

The Sun makes “minor” aspects to Uranus and Mars on Tuesday putting emphasis on independence, self expression, and empowerment.  It is time to stop being a doormat and to speak up.

Venus moves into Cancer on Friday the 17th.  It will stay in Cancer for about a month.  As it leaves Gemini, heart energies shift from light and lively to Cancerian softness and nurturance.

It is time to go deeper in your intimacies with loved ones, to open your heart and trust again.  This trust will allow you to be more vulnerable, which will open you up to greater nurturance from others.

It will also open your heart up to those who need care and concern from you, so you can give them the nurturance they need also.

Mars makes a quincunx (150 degree) angle to Uranus on Saturday the 18th. Time to break out of the box and let more assertive revolutionary energy into your consciousness and bones.  Life is changing and so are you.

Late June and July are lunching pads for new beginnings and startups.  Best now to heal your wounds and traumas as best you can, so you can have less baggage to haul around in this new Era of our lives.

And then in the 2020’s The Age of Aquarius comes into its own.

Till next week,

Leo

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday August 6 at 1 PM  EDT.  The series will continue Saturdays August 13 and 20th at 1 PM to finish up the series.   Each class will last approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.
I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world events  will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is to be paid prior to the classes.
 Recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.

We are the Ones and Astrology Forecast November 8-14.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 7, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Winds shift this week as we come to a New Moon in Scorpio on Wednesday November 11.

This past week has been very difficult for many people.  As we explained last week, the prepoderance of planets in yin signs Virgo or Scorpio during a last quarter lunar cycle promises “down” times.

It was difficult to see the glass as half full this past week, and many suffered facing their worst fears for one reason or another.

But this time has been necessary to go deeper into our souls and bodies, so we can be more real and can be more able for releasing old fears, old patterns of thought and behavior, and toxic emotions that hurt our bodies and souls.

This whole year has been a challenging one, one of great transformation on the route to the Age of Aquarius.

A portal was opened in both the spring and autumn of 2015, a portal that let in new energies aligned with the new age we are moving into.

Many more people have been awkened spiritually this past year.  Many people are seeing more clearly the true condition of our world.  As such, huge crowds have come to see Bernie Sander’s messages of needed economic equality.

This past week also saw thousands of people join a million man mask rally in London.  This rally was to show how capitalism in its current form is rewarding relatively few people, while the vast majority on the Earth struggle to survive.

This past week also showed how dangerous the Islamic State is becoming, as it very likely caused a commercial airline bound for Russsia to explode in mid air.  Russia has recently been bombing in Syria against the Islamic State. This turn of events will bring much change and more grave events into the global world.

And in Israel, there are more and more attacks from Palestinians who are enraged about the long time occupation of their people by Israel.

We also see more and more mass killings in America at schools and malls and other common meeting places for humanity.

And our government is more and more dominated by outside interests, most especially by big corporate interests.

Power to the people to run our world has been largely vanquished by Big Corporate and Big Government interests.

Yet so many people now are waking up and seeing the light.  Their seeing the light is motivating them to open their minds and hearts to new ways.

In so doing they are spiritually transforming and their now opened hearts seek to enter new pathways of Love and Truth.

Is it not readily apparent now that our current world structure and paradigm has failed and that we need new ways of living on this Earth together as one family, a diverse one but neverthelesss all One Family?  Hateful divisions by religion or nation or cultural differences or sexual orientation are ridiculous and are the root of so many ills in our world!

We will need to band together in order to transform our human condition, heal our Earth and its environment, and spiritually connect to the greater meaning in our Universe and to our abused collective Soul.

Our collective Higher Self or Soul has been dominated in consciousness by our collective Ego, an ego that strives and thrives on separation, greed, power, and cynicism.

But since the Eclipse Seasons this year, even as life at times seems much more difficult, we are waking up in all new ways, and even more importantly wanting to make important changes that reconnect us to our better values and to our souls and the Universe.

Now this coming week shifts us out of the recent emotional funk and will bring us more energy and a greater ability to see the glass of our lives as half full again.

It starts on Sunday as Venus moves out of Virgo and into Libra as we get closer to the New Moon in Scorpio.  But keep in mind that we will still be in last quarter of the lunar cycle until Wednesday.

Please do not let yourself believe that the “negativity” you have been feeling and thinking lately is the ultimate truth.  Let time pass before jumping to any conclusion.   Energies have been coloring our thinking and feelings to be more “negative” lately.

Keep up your meditations and spiritual practices, keep releasing and purging old ways, and realize that “this too shall pass”.

On Wednesday 11/11 there will be a New Moon in Scorpio at 12:47 PM EST. The good news of this new moon is that you will begin to have more energy and more motivation to do things and to move forward in your life.

But also remember that this Scorpio energy may tend to lure you into power struggles with others.   Do your best to avoid such conflict if you can.  At the same time give your best to stay empowed and to speak your truth. Just avoid the ego’s need to dominate someone else and to crush them.

Scorpio at its best gives us positive primal energy and “gut” wisdom, passion, and empowerment.  At its worst it brings us toxic resentments, jealousies,  and desires for revenge.  At the same time do not be afraid to feel such emotions as they may be pent up feelings from holding back your truth and power time and time again.

Just do not feed these emotions, be careful not to express them in ways you will regret later, and certainly do not act on them.

At the same time there may be a catharsis and healing with others as you both express what has been bothering you, perhaps even bothering you for a long time.

This New Moon in Scorpio may open up the gates of hell in the greater world and bring more horrific world events that continue to bring down an old paradigm and awaken more people to the need for great change in our world.

If such events do occur, keep your attention on your personal consciousness and life, on your spritual transformation and on your commitment to your Higher Self.  Keep your attention on the New World that is developing parallel to the breaking down of the old world.

Work to bring into your life relationships that show you the love and truth of this world and Universe. To help in that Mars joins Venus in Libra Thursday to prompt us to make relationship.

It is easy now, with all the troubles in the world, to get into a mind frame that wonders how can there be a God or Goddess or Universe that is loving when there are so many bad things going in the world.

Well we humans have been given this beautiful “park” called the Earth, and what we have done with it is on us, not God.

But now we have the opportunity, as the Ages are changing, to evolve to a whole new level of human.   The examples of Christ or Buddha or Mohammed or King or Ghandi or Mother Teresa or Guevara or Moses, etc are part of our collective human Higher Self.

We each need to embody the consciousness they represent.  In an Aquarian Age there is no need to worship other humans or to wait for saviors as was common in the Age of Pisces.

“We are the ones we have been waiting for”, we are our own saviors now and must take responsibility to make this world a better place for all the human family.

Till next week,

Leo

Transformational Drum Beats under the Earth and Astrology Forecast Noveber 1-7

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We enter November (Sunday) with the clocks turned back an hour, giving the impression of darker days. Also as we enter November, we are moving through the waning half of the lunar cycle, a time when things usually slow down for processing, reflecting, and preparing for the next lunar cycle, which will begin on November 11 at the Scorpio New Moon.

New Moons always begin a lunar cycle and give motivation to begin anew. Last quarter moons that are just prior to a New Moon give feeling of downward movement and can sometimes bring on temporary depression.

The time before November 11 is therefore a time to go deeper in one’s thinking, especially so as we are in Scorpio time of year.

The last quarter of the lunar cycle begins on election day November 3, with Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Leo.

Social movements in the USA recently are more toward greater equality, with less control and dominance by the wealthy and privileged- Bernie Sanders people for instance.

This however is countered by the rich and privileged putting more and more energy and Big Corporate super pac funds into keeping the status quo through status quo candidates who sold out- most of the other candidates- Democrat or Republican.

This last quarter lunar cycle from November 3- November 11 will also be a time to process all the recent challenges in your life and in the global perspective.

A New Chapter of life has certainly begun since a big portal opened during Eclipse Season this past late summer and early autumn. Yet after November 11 is when all locked doors will be opened too so we can eachmore fully begin this New Chapter of our lives.

The processing time now, as we enter the last quarter of the lunar cycle this week, will enable us to look more deeply at what is happening to our personal lives and our world.

Give your self a bigger picture look at what this New Chapter will be like. Make attitude adjustments as need be. Stay with your core values, as they will reward you in the end.

On November 11, with the New Moon in Scorpio, there will be a feeling of movement forward after reflection and mental processing the past couple of weeks.

Scorpio is a sign of intensity, depth, passion, and primal instincts.

In the greater world, whatever has been held back will begin to be expressed. Secrets previously hidden will be revealed. Primal passions will burst forward.

Events that showed up in September with the Eclipses will go to the next level of manifestation

Look at the global events that were swirling around during the Eclipses: Russia started bombing in Syria; the Palestinians and Israelis went into very dangerous confrontation with each other; the economy and stock market started to show more evidence of grave weaknesses

These issues have lost some of their heat since September, but they are still very ripe for more events to explode after November 11.

The events that happened in September at the eclipses were not just fleeting and gone forever. They tell us what is coming apart in our global lives.

The economy is held together by band-aids of government money printing; Russia in Syria puts the world into more danger for World War III, and the Palestinian/Israeli conflict promises to explode into fires no one can stop.

These world events are part of a global breakdown of an old world that does not serve the majority of its inhabitants and does not honor our Earth Mother and nature.

We have burst forth into an electronic/computer/internet age that needs to be brought back to Earth literally and figuratively. The computer age will not end, but without the balance of respect for our bodies and souls, our lives will get much worse.

That Scorpio New Moon on November 11 will also signal new beginnings for our personal lives. What was brewing for you during the eclipses will are now being  integrated into your consciousness and life.

Use whatever it is to more fully embrace this New Chapter of life, even its challenges.

You can better avoid the depression some may take on now if you honor and move with the current energies.

Scorpio is “ruled” by Guardian of the Underword Pluto, who myth has it took innocent Persephone away from her Mother Demeter aand brought her into his domain under the Earth- deep into the body and soul of the more mysterious and feared realms of consciousness. When they were done being together in his transformational domain, she was brought back up to Earth, not as innocent but more experienced and wise.

It is Samhain on October 31, same day every year as Halloween.   Veils are lifted in our consciousness, so we can enter those deeper and darker domains where spirits and frequencies of consciousness arre not usually easily accessed.

This realm is not ruled and cannot be reached by scientific methods, math, or computers.  It is world of deep mystery that has the power of transformation within it.

You can access the wisdom and images of soul there, the nurturance of a Dark Mother, and even spirits who may carry symbolic messages for you.

Can you feel the drum beat of the heart of the Earth body signifying deep change now?  Can you sense the power of this transformatation?

Are you already in the process of clearing, cleaning out, and releasing old toxins that have constricted you in your life?

We need to get out from under the weight of mounds of garbage and toxins that have held us back, but also have given us a dysfunctional sense of familiar security.

More clearing and cleaning out of the old this week, getting your self ready for the emergence of new life after November 11..

next week,

Leo

Bringing in the Eclipses with Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast September 13-19

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 12, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week will bring some big energy shifts as important planetary movements show up.

There is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo Sunday September 13 at 2:41 AM EDT; there is a spiritually oriented opposition between Jupiter and Neptune on September 17; and Mercury goes Retrograde also on September 17 at 2:09 PM EDT.

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo is the first of two eclipses this September.  The second one will be a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries on September 27.

Eclipses generally shake up our usual rhythms and normal way of being, allowing change to come through.   This first eclipse, the Solar Eclipse, is a New Moon with much more power than the usual New Moon as it is an eclipse.   The Moon stands in between the Sun and Earth, effectively blocking out the light from the Earth.

Our ancestors of course would often get really freaked out as day turned to night at the wrong time.   This Solar Eclipse is only partial, and as such the Sun’s rays will not be totally blocked.  And here in the United States it will be nighttime during the eclipse, so it will not  show here.

Since this Eclipse is a New Moon in Virgo,  issues of bringing things into some kind of order or perfection will be swirling around our lives.  Being in dreamy, idealistic places will not last.  Virgo requires down to Earth realism.

Virgo often goes further than mere realism, and shows up as skepticism or just plain disbelief.    It is easy with Virgo to get into a “glass half empty” state of mind, which stops us from expecting too much and then getting disappointed.

So keep your feet on the ground, so to speak, as you go through this eclipse, not allowing yourself to get too swept up or overly excited about anything.  If you do, you will soon get knocked back down to “reality”.

Virgo also brings us to a more humble and simple attitude so we can see up close, without any frills or big egos. From that grounded humble place, we are more able to see what is wrong or what is broken.  And then we are better able to fix or heal what has gone wrong.

In the global world, events will take us out of any fantasies or bubbles we collectively find ourselves in.   We will be brought down to the reality of the economy, for instance.  Already we are seeing the Bears come out to slow down the global stock markets.

This comedown will continue until there is a crash that will precipitate the transformation of our global economic system, so that we can rebuild with the needs of all the people in mind.

Bernie Sanders is touching a nerve here in America, as he preaches about how the few hold so much of the wealth in the world.

How can any economic system be right when some people earn billions every year and others earn minimum wage of 7+ dollars an hour. Or as in other countries in the world sell their daughters or their kidneys so they can feed their families.

The trickle down theory of economics has soundly been shown to not work!  So as the economic structure of the world deteriorates, know that this is just part of a world wide transformation that will make the world more fair and just.

Maybe the stock markets will not go too far down this late summer and autumn, but if not they will soon. Reserve currency changing from the dollar to some other currency is what will likely be a major catalyst for global economic change.

And our Superpower status will change in other ways too.  The balance of power in the world is shifting too, as China, India, Russia, and Iran will continue to get stronger.    Hopefully there does not need to be big battles with China, Iran or Russia in order to usher in this change, but that could very well happen.

And it is more and more likely that Israel will be in the center of the big change coming.

Recent aspects to its natal Mars, the nuclear deal with Iran, and the Blood Moon on September 27 happening on a Jewish holiday promise likely big change for Israel.  Four Blood Moons in a row over the last 18 months have all happened on Jewish holidays.

This will not bring a messiah or herald the end of the world as many fundamentalist religious people are promising, but major conflict concerning Israel is likely this late summer and autumn.

The USA, since the Cardinal Grand Cross in 2014 crossed its natal Sun and Saturn, have had many aspects of Uranus and Pluto to that same natal Sun and Saturn.  And Pluto is still there affecting the well being of the USA.

So the USA can expect major events over the next year or so that will reshape how we think and live our lives.

Refugees from Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, and other places where major military conflicts are driving people from their homes, will continue to flood into Europe and the USA, changing the culture of these countries.

And the Islamic State continues to change boundaries between countries as it has gobbled up land in Iraq, Syria, Libya, and Egypt already.

The world is transforming in big ways and that process will be accelerated now. And mid week, as Mercury goes Retrograde and Jupiter opposes Neptune, there may be greater confusion on the state of the world.

Mercury Retrograde, beginning on the 17th, will shift our mental processes as it always does. It will stay until October 9, at which time it will go back Direct again.

As it is going Retrograde in the middle of two eclipses, we can expect that we will be brought through a time when we will be taken off our usual balance.

The Mercury Retrograde part of that unbalance will mainly affect our mental state.  When Mercury goes Retrograde, our usual mental agendas and paradigms are shifting, as our way of perceiving is in flux.

That is why it is always recommended not to make big decisions or stage big events during Mercury Retrograde.

I know many of you became aware of this need not to jump into things while Venus was Retrograde.  After it went back Direct on September 6, our hearts began to see more clearly what was really going on in certain relationships.

If we had jumped to conclusions or jumped into certain relationships, we would have put ourselves into something unhealthy or into something not really right for us.

Now close behind that Venus Retrograde we have Mercury Retrograde and the eclipses.  So stay on your toes, so to speak, and do not dig in or hold onto anything too tightly.  Over attachment to anything is not a good idea now, as the speed of change is strong now.

And Jupiter opposite Neptune this week will help you to surrender undo need for control.  That aspect is good for spiritual connection, for synchronicity and connection with the Universe.  Magic is alive if you are awake and alive.

But you will need some degree of trust so you can let the process of life unfold as it is meant to unfold.

Keep your mind and heart open to new ways of thinking and seeing.

There is a major portal opening now, bringing a flood of love and truth our way. Let that flood help you to release old ways that are not right for you anymore.

Often we are unaware of how much our society and family have programmed us to see ourselves, others and life in a certain way.    Let those preconceived notions organically leave your mind, so you can open to Truth, which will help you be more free.

Be open now to new truths, which are not sitting in Galaxies beyond our comprehension, but are sitting right before our eyes here up close in reality.

Did you ever walk into a room that you have walked through many times before, and all of a sudden see a picture or some object you thought you had never seen before? Then someone tells you it had always been there. You just had not put your attention there before.  You see it now because you are ready to see it.

That is how some truths can come to you now, right before your eyes now open to see.

Also I have a new YouTube video for the eclipses for you to see.

And my wife Deborah has just started a blog will bring to you a greater sense of life’s sacredness and our human connection to our Earth, Feminine mysteries and that which brings us all together in unity.

Till next week,

Leo

Zombies and Astrology Forecast July 5- 11

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 4, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Capricorn Full Moon has passed and now we move through the waning half of the lunar cycle that was begun on June 16 at the New Moon in Gemini.  

Now we pick up the pieces and process what has been happening in our consciousness and lives.   Over the last several weeks, going back to the Spring Eclipses, we have experienced big shifts in our lives.  The heart openings, breakthroughs, breakdowns, challenges, magic, and difficulties over that time period now need to be examined, emotionally and spiritually processed, and put into some order.

On Monday July 6 the Sun will oppose Pluto and will trigger the Uranus/Pluto square, which is still in effect.    This will help us to more deeply process what has been changing in our lives recently.   Recent relational shifts require more clarity and this Sun/Pluto aspect will help bring issues to the surface.  That will aid our ability to process, gain more clarity, and move through the changes.

This aspect will also require that we release old ways and attitudes that are baggage from our past.  In so doing we are clearing the decks of our hearts and minds, so our new voyage can be more fully embraced.

The triggers to to the Uranus/Pluto square will help the process of transformation:  Monday July 6 Sun opposite Pluto,  July 11 Sun square Uranus, July 15 Mars opposite Pluto, and July 25 Mars opposite Uranus.   These planetary configurations will continue the process of pushing you out of your old comfort zones, to make way for transformational change in your life.

On July 15, as Mars opposes Pluto, there will also be a New Moon in Cancer.  A few days surrounding that date will likely bring much emotional expression and release.     Be careful not to be too angry then or too out of control emotionally. We will write more about next week.

The Mars opposition to Uranus on July 25 will also be a full day of important planetary movement as Venus will be going Retrograde then.  Relationships will be in the spotlight of your life then and will continue to be through September 6 when Venus goes back Direct.  More on that as we get closer to that date.

Then early August will bring a major turning point in our lives, especially so as Saturn goes Direct on August 2.   Saturn going direct is like time marching on. It can give a sense of fate and “now it is time”.

Venus Retrograde in Leo, Jupiter in Leo, and Saturn in Scorpio will be doing a planetary dance with each other in early August that brings us to this important turning point in our lives.

Later when Venus goes Direct on September 6, two powerful eclipses will follow:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 13 and then a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on September 27.

The full power of transformation will be erupting in our lives then, and world events will reflect the importance of these eclipses.

These events in the world, which will likely include some economic meltdown and world conflict, will open the doorway to even more breakthroughs in our transitional voyage into the Age of Aquarius.

Right now this week as the Sun triggers the Uranus/Pluto square, there are important decisions to be made on Iran’s nuclear program and Greece’s financial condition.

July 7 appears to represent the time of potential completion of the deal between Iran and the United Nations security council plus Germany.    Even if they do agree to a deal, the backlash from Israel and hardliners in the USA and Iran will likely be fierce.

On July 5 the citizens of Greece will be voting by referendum on their government’s debt crisis.  If they vote no, they will be speaking against the austerity measures demanded by the lenders in order to help satisfy loans given to Greece.

Greece has a recently “voted in” a socialist government that fundamentally opposes the current Capitalist system.   Europe’s future and the future of our global current economic system are being challenged by the crisis in Greece. This past week, banks in Greece had been closed in order to limit withdrawals of money from personal accounts.

And of course the Middle East continues to be in severe crisis with the Islamic State continuing its breakdown of the order in Iraq, Syria, and North Africa.  The Egyptian Sinai region is now in conflict with IS as is the Gaza Strip in Palestine.

And the recent Supreme Court decision to make Gay marriage the law of America is a huge step into the Age of Aquarius.   We can only hope and pray that the backlash for this from fundamentalist haters is not too severe.

In our personal lives there will continue to be breakdowns of old personal systems that no longer hold heart, soul and spirit. Empty structures and “life support systems”  cannot stand up for long.

They will cease to exist as we open our hearts and minds to new consciousness and ways of living our lives. Careers, relationships, home bases, and inner values continue to transform.

Liberation and resulting displays of synchronicity, meaningful symbols, and magic will open more and more in your consciousness and life.  Your heart will be bursting more open too as you experience life from a more pure place again, without the need to control everything.

As your ego subsequently loses its power in your psyche and life, you may feel insecure and/or anxious at first, but more and more you will be feeling alive again.

You know the old question “Is your heart in it”? is always an important question to ask oneself.   That question can be asked about a relationship or job or place you live.  If your heart is not in it anymore, then your heart is dying little by little.

Can you get your heart back into that relationship or home or career? If not it may not last.  Or maybe it will last because of your desperate need to totally control your heart and life in familiar ways.   But then you risk, through time, of joining the dinosaur gathering of soul dead zombies in a suburb of unhappiness.

Till next week,

Leo

It is transition time this week, as Mercury has just gone Direct; there is a New Moon in Pisces Saturday March 1 at 3 AM EST; Mars changes directions and goes Retrograde- also on March 1; Saturn goes Retrograde on March 2; and Jupiter goes Direct on Thursday March 6.

As planets change direction, either from Direct to Retrograde or from Retrograde to Direct; their meaning and energy have increased intensity and importance.

Add the New Moon in Pisces to these directional shifts, and there will be a feeling of new horizons to move toward, new consciousness to experience, and deeper feelings to explore.

A symbol of Pisces is two fishes going in opposite directions.  This is symbolic of navigating one’s soul consciousness waters and deciding which direction to move in- upstream or downstream, positive or negative.

Though the Pisces world is often rather nebulous, and hence it does not always know what it wants or what direction to go; most Pisces people do tend to be either glass half full or glass half empty people.

Sure the more positive Pisces can have periods of dark negativity, feelings of hurtful victimization; negative ways of escapism like drugs, alcohol, or disassociation, and not feeling up to the task of being in “reality”, they nevertheless always go back to their core of resilience, faith in life, and hope for better times.

The glass half empty Pisces has moments of hope and joy, but at their core they identify with being a victim and not up to the task of cold hard reality, as they see it.

Though both are dreamers and know inside themselves what a better humanity would look like, the half full Pisces believes we can one day create heaven on Earth, while the half empty Pisces down deep believes human life is painful and history will keep repeating itself.

So these next few weeks, with emphasis on this coming week as planets are changing directions and Pisces has its annual new moon event, it is time for each of us, no matter what sign, to decide if our personal glass of life is half full or half empty.

With the planets changing directions during this Pisces mutable month before spring, events and inner stirrings will draw you into deeper and changeable feelings and consciousness.

As we shift, is there hope in your heart or cynicism at your core?

Mercury going direct should help you to revive and think more clearly now.   Mars and Saturn changing directions at the same time this weekend may have you feeling both stop and go inside your self- desires to act and caution to hold back.  Best to not go to any extremes, not be impulsive, and just “let it pass”.

When Mars goes Retrograde, which it will do from March 1- May 19, it is a significant passage as it happens only once every other year.  While it is retrograde we are going deeper to decide what we truly want or desire and what direction we want to move toward.  We also may be dealing with issues of will, assertiveness, empowerment, and anger during that time

By mid week this week, however, as Jupiter goes Direct on Thursday March 6 (where it will stay until December) ; there should be feelings of renewal and perhaps an expansive outpouring of emotions.

Jupiter going Direct will sweep you into your inner tides of soulful feelings and emotions, and deeper into deciding “glass half full or half empty”?

This is important now to stay with, be present for, and find your way to deciding.  As winds of change will pick up appreciably after March 30 at the Aries Moon, a new moon that will push us over the edge into a most powerful Spring Eclipse Season 2014; it is time now over the next 4 weeks to build a more solid inner foundation.

This week especially your inner world may swirl back and forth, up and down like a ship on the ocean.  It is a great time to meditate, to go with your flow, and especially to watch your dreams, both waking and sleeping.   Put a journal next to your bed and record your dreams, looking for signs and symbols to reveal your inner truths.

The greater world also will be swirling and bouncing up and down with events, looking like it is not sure where it is going. The stock market should be up and down looking for direction; current hot spots like Syria, Iran, Ukraine, Thailand, Egypt, Israel, Afghanistan, Venezuela, and Korea may be swinging back and forth from dangerous to settled. Ukraine right now is especially important as old Cold War issues between Russia and the West are surfacing again, as they battle for control of that country.

As a culture we are needing to know what direction we are moving in on many issues.  Are we on the verge of giving a better living wage to workers or not?  Are we now going to commit our world to meeting the challenge of Climate Change on Earth?  Or better yet are we going to commit to healing our Earth and developing worldwide policies to clean the environment, and begin developing clean energy sources?

Have we turned the corner to believe our world and its people are of one family, with many varied members:  Diversity in Unity?  That belief will help us to eventually evolve to a new species, one that knows ONENESS, and knows all the dots of the Universe are connected and held up by the twin pillars of Love and Truth? Or are we going to have another world war, a war built on the cynical belief that all tribes of human are out for themselves, against all others for the wealth and power of the world?

How we see it will determine what will manifest.  Glass Half Full or Half Empty?

In your personal life the same issue is before you.  Have all your relationship “failures” brought you to believe you are undeserving and will never have healthy relationships, that all men or women are no good, that you have horrible luck or are jinxed?

Or do you believe each of your past relationships, whether family, friend or romantic, happened for a reason, was a learning experience, and deepened your soul awareness, your empathy and wisdom?

Of course we go back and forth sometimes in our emotions and beliefs, the pain so horrible we see only the pit of despair below.   But we can navigate those soul waters, with perhaps a little help from our friends, healers, therapists and counselors, to learn to see from a wider perspective, and to know we are evolving and progressing.

As we soon move into Spring Eclipse 2014 Season, where will your soul swimming take you?  What will your glass of life look like?

Or as Hamlet said, “To Be or Not To Be, That is the Question”.

I will be in Mexico on the ocean for vacation till March 10.  Not sure if I will write next Saturday or not.  If I do it will be shorter than usual.

The next full forecast will be at the Ides of March on March 15,  just before the Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo.

talk with you soon,

Leo

Getting it Together and Astrology Forecast August 25-31

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 24, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It is Sun in Virgo time of year, the transitional last month of summer before Autumn Equinox.  It is apt that at Virgo time of year school starts up again, as Virgo represents the need for “getting it together”, getting to work, and putting order in our lives.    It is time to at least begin to think about what needs to be repaired or fixed or healed.

Virgo is the Virgin, which is not directly related to sex.  Astrologically it is more about wanting purity or perfection.  And Virgo is great at finding what is impure or “what is wrong with this picture” in order to know what needs to be fixed to make things more pure or perfect.   It has a most critical eye, a talent for discrimination and discernment.  It often is most critical of itself, and can obsess on some fault or actually can obsess on most anything it puts its mind to.

Virgo needs order and simplification, and can be incredibly efficient.    As an earth sign, it likes to keep things “close to the ground” and does not like emotions or spirits or ideas to be out of control or “flying too high”.

It is skeptical by nature, in its head, and is good at analyzing and intellectually processing.   From that place it can get very locked in to what it is thinking about or focused on.

Virgo is also a mutable sign, and can be lead by others, not usually wanting to take charge or push anything.    It instead can be satisfied being of service and doing what needs to be done.

Virgo comes right after dramatic Leo, so instead is learning to be humble and not ostentatious.   Leo roars and Virgo is best being modest and “low-key”.

Please do not look for all Virgos to be tidy and neat.  All Virgos have a need for order, but this can come in varied ways, like mental order or not having any chaos or emotional upset. Sometimes the need for order is so strong inside them, that they need to let go and let life be “messy” instead, in order to take the pressure off.

So as you get in touch with the need now to put things in order, to get back to school or hard work again, keep in mind that it is still summer and we are still within a Leo lunar cycle, still needing to enjoy summer and have fun.

After September 5, when the Moon joins the Sun in Virgo for a Virgo New Moon, we then get more fully engaged with getting down to work or school, getting our lives simplified, fixed, and put back in order.

There is a major storm of life intensity coming this Autumn in our personal lives and in the greater world.   Much will shake up again as we experience another Eclipse Season in October/November, another Uranus/Pluto exact square, Mercury Retrograde, and the appearance of Comet Ison in late November.   That comet may be a bright light in the sky and another harbinger of meaningful change, or it could turn out dim and be a dud.

Nevertheless, those other planetary events promise a most powerful, transformational, and meaningful Autumn Season.

In fact the second Eclipse of the two this autumn  is a hybrid Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, to be seen on the eastern seaboard USA, in southern Europe, the Middle East, and much of Africa.  Those regions, therefore,  may also feel more of the intensity on an energetic and transformational level.

For now, however, life energies should be beginning to settle down this week and have less intensity, generally speaking.    The Sun in Virgo makes opposition to Neptune Monday/Tuesday, suggesting we let go and trust, even while we are trying hard to figure things out or make them work right.

Mars leaves “feelings” oriented and family focused Cancer for fun loving and creative Leo on Wednesday/Thursday, where it will stay until mid October.  Open up your creative energies and projects, and let your heart’s intuition lead your way more.

Big egos on the world stage will show off their imagined “royalty” and superiority during this Mars in Leo time period and drive world events.

Make no mistake about it,  world leaders from the western world are getting ready to militarily engage in Syria. The USA has sent war ships today to the shores near Syria.  They will be slyly setting us all up for military involvement in Syria. Remember Iraq and weapons of mass destruction, which did not exist?

Now it is chemical weapons being used by the government of Syria.   They are setting us up again for war.  If chemical weapons are indeed being used, there is evidence they are being used by all parties involved.  And this is a most complicated conflict, with many Middle Eastern countries, western powers, and Russia all strutting for positions of power in this prized geopolitical spot on the Earth.  The instability also in Egypt and elsewhere since the Arab Spring promises powerful change in the Middle East and the world

We are moving into a dark cocoon of turmoil, which will eventually birth a butterfly of an Age of Aquarius.

Meditate and pray this conflict can be as tempered as possible, and that lessons will learned sooner than later, paving the way for a more graceful healing crisis for our human family here on Earth.

From late September through November the emotional and energetic levels of intensity will increase exponentially, especially in late October and November.

This means each of us will be challenged to stay on our soul path, to be present, to be aware of where the Universe is asking us to be open to healing and transformation in our consciousness and lives.

Sometimes what is mostly going on is not necessarily about making major life moves, but more about shifting the patterns.   We are sometimes so controlled by our early programming, by the wounds, traumas, and abuses from our lives.  These transformational times can bring us to the core of these traumas and programmed patterns, and in the process of exposing the wounds again, in sometimes new forms, we are given the opportunity to make deep change, experience deep healing, and be “reborn” into new ways of thinking, feeling and experiencing.

From these new places in our consciousness and souls we sometimes require new relationships or careers or homes, etc.  But often all we need is to be liberated from the stuck places in our minds and hearts, so we can live more healthy and whole lives.

See you next week,

Leo
