Eclipse Season Winter 2020 can still be seen in our rear-view mirrors.  

There is more to process through, and hopefully each of us finds the time to do so, with professional support, or close friends, or time for being alone with yourself to sort through and heal from.

The last couple of months brought up so much from deep within our minds, souls, spirits, and bodies.

They have been “brought back up” into our awareness,  because we need more clarity,  direction, insight, and release of old patterns that do not serve us or our evolution into the Age of Aquarius.

Our collective human lives are really in crisis now, as we get more and more certain that our old paradigm is failing us, as we struggle to find our way forward.

Many struggle to be present, or even to just wanting to be present.  Our phones, computers and other tech escapes have us living more and more in a virtual world bubble.

Many more young members of society awaken each morning as adults now.  And as they look out at the world we live in, they are scared to death.

Mass murders at schools, workplaces, restaurants, night clubs and other frequented places, gives many people pause when thinking about going outside their homes for any reason.

Your work needs and your friendship needs can more and more often be “satisfied” from home or on a computer.

Sex lives are also more and more virtual, with internet porn, dating site hookups,  and now human-like sex robots.

We do not even need to go out for groceries or restaurant food, which can be delivered to our door, along with everything else you want and need taken care of by Amazon.

And look at the world “out there”. Our American culture is split, as it once was at the Civil War.

Our economy is for show, not nearly as good as it is being sold to us.

And during this latest Eclipse Season, we were brought to the brink of war with Iran ( which could have triggered  a World War); The Coronavirus outbreak of illness and death started in China; the almost war with Iran that could have led to World War III; and economy and stock market on the brink of severe downturn; and a presidential impeachment process that is about power and politics more than desires for truth, justice, fairness, and community.

Of course our world is at a crisis point at a Crossroads based on bringing back our values that are connected to “our better angels” as Abraham Lincoln alerted us to.  OR NOT making those “better angel” values our highest priority.  The impeachment process showed us, when a vote came for calling witnesses and documents, how winning politically is more important than our cherished values and ideals.

We are in deep trouble, and can no longer operate from a default pattern of energies, habits, and opinions that keep us stuck in the old world, paradigm and Age that do not work for us, or help provide us with Truth, Love and care for one another and our community.

This week, as we are in the beginning of the Lunar Cycle begun at the New Moon in Aquarius on the 24th,  begin our week at Imbolc on the 2nd of February.

Imbolc has been considered a sacred day for hundreds of years, especially by those who find spiritual Oneness in Nature.

Imbolc, called Groundhog Day in our current pop culture, is the half way marker between Winter and Spring. It was considered as a Time of Initiation.

And Groundhog Day is seeing shadows that tell people if Spring is coming early in any given year.

Mercury leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces on Monday February 3, shifting our mind into more imaginative and creative thinking and communicating.

Staunch adherents of “cause and effect” logic find Mercury in Pisces quite challenging, as it is into finding connections and right brain unity more than the bottom line of left brain thinking.

This week tops off with Venus entering battler Aries on Friday the 7th.

This is Venus’ best example of being empowered, self assertive, and true to Self.

Venus in Aries is independent and self confident.  Closest Goddess to this Venus placement in Aries is Athena.

And to top off this week, we have a Full Moon in Leo on the 9th at 2:33 AM EST.

The Sun is in Aquarius opposes the Moon in Leo, which makes the Full Moon.

So Aquarius’ mind is quite different than Leo’s heart.  At this Full Moon you may get a realization that trusting mind more than heart is not the right way to believe and lead one’s life.

Leo ideally is the open heart of a 3 year old whose heart is ready to take on all experiences.  And she also appreciates all the attention she may be getting.

Aquarius knows the value of a clear mind that also possesses higher values. It operates from a web of thought patterns, similar to the Internet.

I did much study this week to be able to find who the next USA president will be.

I felt pretty sure when I predicted Obama would be the Democrat nominee and McCain the Republican nominee in 2008, then Obama the winner. I made prediction around this time of year I believe. Since I was able to predict so early in the process, using my own astro formulas, I believe those 2 were destined to win.

Then in 2016 I predicted early that Trump would be the nominee and eventual winner

This time it is not so easy, as 3 or 4 people do well in the formula.

Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and in a lesser way Bloomberg and Warren all meet the formula criteria. So does Trump fit the formula.

But Elizabeth Warren is also so connected to the Eclipses this year in June and November and most of all she is connected to the Jupiter conjunct Saturn aspect in December that is a symbol of the New Age of Aquarius beginning.   Her natal Jupiter is at 0 degrees 14 minutes of Aquarius.  The Jupiter/Saturn conjunction is exactly at 0 degrees 14 minutes of Aquarius

I predict Elizabeth Warren will win,  But I do so with less confidence than in previous years.

In Addition to all this potential confusion, the Universe is throwing a big curve ball on Election Day this year because it has the same crazy planetary aspect it had on Election Day November 7, 2000.

Mercury that night in 2000 was shifting from Retrograde to Direct,  and news anchors all kept going back and forth predicting Bush won, then Gore, then Bush, etc.

We did not know the winner until weeks later when the Supreme Court got involved. Bush won.

Very strangely, and perhaps most importantly, this Election Day on November 3 has the same planetary alignment as it did on Election Day in November 2000. Mercury goes from Retrograde to Direct that day.

Maybe no one will be the clear winner that night. Maybe Trump will not accept the apparent win by Biden or Bernie or Warren.  Very Good chance one of those 2 alternatives or one we cannot see yet will play out.  To be continued.

Till next week,

Leo

A Step Beyond and Astrology Forecast September 11- 17.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week is round 2 of eclipses, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces on Friday September 16 at 3:05 PM EDT.

That means that intensity will build this coming week appreciably until it climaxes on or around the 16th.

Since Mercury also stays Retrograde all this week, it may at times feel quite off balance emotionally and mentally.

The more one energetically rides the waves, the better.   If one holds too tightly and tries to control too much it will be more difficult this week.

Adding to the intensity of the eclipse, Mars in Sagittarius will square the points of the Sun and Moon positions of the eclipse.

That makes a T-square formation, a usually difficult pulling in 3 different directions energetically.

Sun in Virgo pulls toward physical order, logical analysis, and perfecting or fixing;  Moon in Pisces wants to be able to let go and surrender, allow the soul to speak its truth, and to go with the flow.   Both seek to be of service to others or to something greater than the self.

Mars in Sagittarius wants to stoke the fires of enthusiasm and inspiration, take the exciting adventure, and trust inspiration.   Virgo moves downward, Pisces moves inward, Sagittarius moves upward.    Virgo is earth, Pisces is water, Sagittarius is fire.

If you try too hard to figure everything out this week, you will likely be frustrated.  If you encounter challenges or difficulties, it will be best to let the process unfold without needing to totally understand everything or to force conclusions or answers.

Remember that Mercury is Retrograde and as such it requires letting go of mental controls, and instead to trust other ways of comprehension like intuition or imagination.

You may be rewinding the clock of your life now, revisiting with people from your past through dreams, memories or actual in-person connections.

This may bring up unresolved issues, issues you have put aside and thought were resolved well enough.

Current situations in your life can be seen as similar to the ones that are coming back to you from the past.

You thus have the opportunity to work through blocks or dysfunctional patterns in your life or relationships.    The past only needs to come back so it can be applied to current issues that need resolution or healing. Or perhaps it is back so you find closure to the old issues, so you can move on in your life or relationships.

If you are feeling hurt beyond what seems “logical”, then you know it is an old wound or trauma that has been triggered inside you.

Eclipses help us to move out of stuck places in our minds or hearts. They do so by taking us out of our comfort zones, creating breakdowns or breakthroughs out of those stuck energies.

Mercury Retrograde helps us to see with new lens, to perceive differently, to go outside the old boxes.  It helps us to question a belief or direction we have chosen.

We then have the opportunity to change directions, to think and feel differently, or to end up feeling even more confident of what was previously chosen.

You can see why it is wise, with the eclipses and Mercury Retrograde to not jump to conclusions, or leap into anything.

All is in process now, and bottom line thinking is off its usual abilities.   Be patient and wait it out.  Before too long (sometime after Mercury goes back direct on September 22nd) renewed clarity and direction will surface from the fog.

In the global picture during this Eclipse Season and Mercury Retrograde:  the election process for President of the USA is getting even more mean spirited from both sides; a truce has been called in war torn Syria; North Korea is looking more dangerous than ever; the USA is  getting more estranged from China and some Asian nations like the Philippines; the economy  and stock market are showing signs of difficulty; Iran and the USA are sabre rattling with one another; and the Middle East in general feels like a kind of calm before the coming storms.

These issues will tend to build intensity this week with some kind of climax around the Lunar Eclipse.   Then all will begin to shift around the 22nd on Autumn Equinox with Mercury back Direct again.

Life as we know it is rapidly changing right before our eyes now, and we are only just in the beginning of the transformation.

We have a long way to go before we reach what is needed and aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

Things in some ways will get much worse, like with societal structures and institutions, which are decaying and self destructing.

But in the process we are as a human collective re-aligning with core principles and ideals.

We are reaching more up to the heavens of our divine nature, while at the same time getting more comfortable with our connection to sacred Mother Earth and her Natural rhythms.

We are honoring more our souls and spiritual natures, while learning to trust our bodies and their wisdom at the same time.

All is connected and working together for a common unity and evolutionary growth.

All is pointing toward the star of the Age of Aquarius.  It may not be exactly what each of us wants, but it will give us all exactly what we collectively need in our travels around the wheel of our Universe into a New Age.

Expect the unexpected and do not be too surprised if we before too long see the proof that we as Earthlings are not alone in the Universe.

Till next week,

Leo

Digging for Deeper Truth and Astrology Forecast October 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 6, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Our connection with “reality” deepens, intensifies, and gets more confusing as Saturn has moved into Scorpio while sextile Neptune.  Saturn will stay in Scorpio for almost three years, so get used to not being able to get out of knowing the underworld of emotions and life. That which has been buried in your consciousness and avoided will need to be faced.  This could help you to eventually relieve stress and actually create a catharsis and healing.

This week Saturn stays in close contact with Neptune, so it will easier to imagine realities shifting, or even conspiracies or supposed delusions being real.

This past week, watching the Presidential debates, I started imagining  my recent prediction of Romney winning the election actually coming true. Prior to that debate I began to feel that maybe my formulas for world and political prediction, which usually work quite well, were way off this time. The polls were swinging way in favor of President Obama.

But this past week, during the debate, Obama seemed as if he was not entirely present, or kind of depressed, or distracted by something else, or losing interest in continuing to be president.  Of course as president he has more and heavier responsibilities than any of us can imagine, with possible wars and broken economies, etc. being such a huge burden to carry in one’s mind and heart.

But I have seen many presidents through the years in debate, and never one who seemed so lost as Obama did this past week. A couple people I talked to this week, said he acted that way because he was given the information recently that his time is up, and Romney has been chosen by the Powers that Be to be the next president.

Talk about conspiracy theories!  I have certainly become quite jaded by our world through the years and know our world is run by the Military/Economic Complex, Big Government and Big Corporation, and that our leaders are all too often bought out and corrupted. I know America is now an Empire and has unjustly caused wars in Viet Nam and Iraq, and uses others’ resources for its own needs.  I can even stretch myself to imagine the possibility the CIA or other government agencies might have had something to do with President Kennedy’s assassination

But I have a real hard time believing our government was a part of the 9-11 tragedy, bringing down the twin towers.  And I do not believe that the Powers that Be choose our presidents and our vote is not valid at all.

But I do believe we do not know anywhere near the real truths of what dirty business our world leaders are a part of.  And I know for sure there are many layers of veils that hide deeper truths from our conscious minds. Saturn in Scorpio and Uranus square Pluto over the next few years, will reveal realities that are meant to bring new beams of light to our awareness that awaken us from our slumber.

I am sure President Obama has been shocked by previously hidden truths and awakened to realities we are all still asleep to.

And much will open up over the next few months of 2012, as we get closer to the end of the Mayan Calendar on December 21 2012.   There is a UFO Disclosures documentary being released this autumn that is expected to blow the lid on secrets.  And November 2012 is a real planetary powerhouse.

Mercury goes retrograde on Election day November 6, and will bring shifts in awareness, election surprises, perhaps confusing results, and maybe more voting irregularities.   Election Day 2000, Gore versus Bush was the last time Election day had Mercury changing directions, an extremely rare occurrence, and you know how weird that day was!

On November 13, there is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio.  Huge eruptions in the Middle East can be expected, on this 42nd anniversary of the birth of the current Syrian Regime.  World War is likely to ignite over tensions in the Middle East before too long.   Our world economy is also poised for a deep fall soon, with hyped up gas prices and inflation.

On November 28 there is a second eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini.   Around this date Mars will conjunct Pluto and trigger the Uranus/Pluto square.

Transformation of our individual lives and consciousness will intensify this autumn, and the greater world will face immense new challenges brought on by world events.

It is not time now to be rigid and closed down. It is time to be awake, flexible, and on one’s toes anticipating change and progress.  Open your self to new spiritual vistas, open minded questioning of old conventional world ways, healthier lifestyles, and greater social interactions with people you truly resonate with.

Let go of being invested in relationships that are unhealthy and unsatisfying, or that keep you stuck in your “old self” and your fears.  Dysfunctional and toxic patterns of behavior, thinking and relating are ripe during this upcoming eclipse season to be released another level.  You can bring in more love and truth, and get closer to your soul, your authentic self, and the natural rhythms of the Universe.

Everything you have been moving toward in your personal evolution wants to progress even further.  Blocks in your psyche, soul, and body want to be unlocked so you can bring in more love and light into your life. There is nothing to fear, as you will be basking more and more in a healthy and whole life. Though there is much pain in releasing old familiar support systems, even if they were no longer good for you or your growth and evolution, there is no other way to go anymore.  Holding on keeps you back, and will eventually close your heart and mind more and more.

Let go and let the Universe take you into nature’s dance.  Being kept within a prison of your own insecurities and fears kills your heart and soul and contributes to the old world and its toxic ways.  Your ego may want you to come to definite conclusions right away so it can be in control, but sometimes it is essential to keep the options open for awhile and let life unfold on its own.  You of course need to be proactive not passive, engaged not apathetic; but nevertheless open to what is coming your way.   These next few months will assist your personal evolution if you are open to the waves of change blowing in.

We are now in the waning half of the lunar cycle, awaiting a New Moon in Libra on October 15. That New Moon will begin a lunar cycle that takes us through the election.

Mars leaves Scorpio for Sagittarius late tonight and begins a couple months of freeing up our spirits to look for more meaning and inspiration and adventure.     Allow your spirit to soar more now and find more joy, even while  the Saturn in Scorpio rotor rooter digs for deeper truths.

See you next week,

Leo
