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

Venus Direct and Astrology Forecast September 6-12

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The winds and tides of our consciousness and lives begin to shift this week.   These shifts will morph into a huge portal of change and transformation for later September and beyond.

The first winds will bring Venus going back Direct on Sunday September 6 at 4:29 AM EDT.  Venus has been Retrograde since July 25, and many relationship lives have gone through much turmoil and upheaval since then.

While Mercury is Retrograde we cannot trust our minds to operate as they usually do, and when Venus is Retrograde we cannot trust our hearts to operate as they usually do.

That is why it is advised during Venus Retrograde to not jump to any relationship conclusions as normal heart to heart communication is “tainted” by Venus Retrograde.  And the usual insight our hearts give us is clouded by Venus Retrograde.

Venus Retrograde is needed because our heart and relationship lives often get stale or off course, and it becomes imperative that there is a shakeup to get us to wake up.

But as we wake up more fully as Venus goes Direct now, we may still be somewhat foggy.  So we wait for Venus to have been direct for awhile before we begin to see into our hearts more clearly again.  And it usually takes another few weeks before all is back into some kind of order again.  Venus actually goes full circle on October 8, when it goes back to exactly where it started its retrograde journey.  That does not mean you necessarily need to wait that long to get heart clarity and to move you relationships forward, but full completion of the Venus cycle will not completed till then.

So feel the shift on September 6, but be careful to wait for the dust to clear from your storm traumatized heart before you are fully certain of anything.

And as we slowly settle back into our normal heart rhythms again, we will be also experiencing the downward movement of the last quarter of the lunar cycle, a cycle which began at the New Moon in Leo on August 15.

It is time this week to come down into a more humble place (especially so as we are in Sun in Virgo time).  From that more simple and grounded place, we begin to develop more order and to make more sense of what our recent soul’s journey has been about.

What relationship lessons have we been learning?  What is our heart trying to tell us?   What is the realistic state of our relationship?  What needs to be released from our heart’s past?  Who has really cared for you?  Who has really hardly seen you at all?

Now this week, no matter what the lessons or insight have been, it is time to begin to move forward, to leave the nightmare, to shake off the hurt, and to make strong intention to change the unhealthy relationship patterns and to attract more resonant people into your life.

As Venus slowly moves your heart issues forward this week, and as the Moon goes darker everyday into your soul’s quiet recesses; you are preparing for the first eclipse this Eclipse Season.

That will happen on September 12/13. It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo at 2:41 AM EDT on the 13th.

A big shift bringing big changes will be ignited at that Solar Eclipse. A portal of new transformational energies will begin to crack open then.

As it is a Virgo Solar Eclipse New Moon, the Universe will be bringing us energies which will help us to be more real,  more humble and of service to others.  We will desire to find more order to our lives and our own minds.

Remember that a Solar Eclipse is a New Moon on steroids.  So as you are energetically pushed to move forward, be careful of the downsides of Virgo.  Be careful not to get into obsessions or overly critical opinions, especially of yourself.   Also watch out to not be so materially and physically oriented as to lose the flow of soul inside you.

In the greater world, major events are getting ready to unfold.  World dominoes will begin to fall, affecting one place after another.

The world economic structure is beginning to come undone and will continue to do so. It is possible that life support systems will delay the inevitable for a while longer, but not much longer.

Boundaries are being breached as can be seen in an influx of refugees into Europe and elsewhere. The wars in Iraq and Syria and Afghanistan have made for more homeless people trying to find a safe place to live.

Our whole world is in the process of being transformed now, with power structures changing too and soon currency issues will change too as there will be strong attempts to shift away from the dollar.

China, India, Brazil, Iran, and Russia are empowering themselves while America wastes its time listening to and giving so much attention to Donald Trump.

The Middle East is on the verge of major war now as the Iran nuclear deal is galvanizing the positions of so many countries, especially Israel.

Israel has a Mars Return on September 22, 5 days before the powerful Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on September 27.  Watch for what Israel does around that time.

After that second eclipse, much will be energized and opened up as the transformational portal will be more fully activated. Energies of truth and love will be bursting at the seams to break through into our minds and hearts and world.

Fear and hatred and cynicism will be blocks in the system that will collide with the new streams of love and truth. Let them go.

Old traumas which breed lack of trust and lack of faith and low self esteem will be bursting open to be better understood and healed.  That healing will open our hearts and minds to the love and truth wanting to enter our consciousness.

Use this coming week, before the first eclipse on September 12/13, to find some resolution and clarity, some insight and direction, some inner peace.

Put into order what needs to be ordered, and most importantly be as humble and down to Earth as possible.

What is inflated will be deflated now, so we can do what is needed to heal our ourselves, our Earth and its creatures, and our human family.

“It is not about me” is a good mantra to put on your refrigerator and in your meditations now.   

Being with what that means- in your deeper soul now- will provide you with some foundation of strength for the storms ahead.

Till next week,

Leo

A new Autumn YouTube will be presented next weekend.

In the Middle of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 and Astrology Forecast October 12-18.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 11, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

I am leaving Italy today and feeling  very fulfilled from this 17 day trip to Europe.   As this voyage happened during Autumn Eclipse Season, with Mercury Retrograde,  there has been a significant shift in consciousness and a re-connection with my ancestral lineage in Italy.   Since the transformation of our global family will include big shifts in the power dynamics of the world, Western Civilization is feeling it’s effects.

Seeing the ancient buildings and long-time local traditions has brought a new awareness to my consciousness, as my American consciousness only knows 238 years of existence. Seeing alleys in Italy that have been used since before Christ helps me to know that people’s in the world value their heritage and take pride in their past and so love their land and culture.

The coming changes will not be  easy.  Many European countries are dealing with immigration from Africa and the Middle East, and trying to fit these very different cultures into their very ingrained traditional ways.   And China, Russia, India, Brazil and other countries are getting stronger and stronger.  And new global boundaries are being redrawn in the Middle East and elsewhere to shift our world into a New Age.

These lands I have been visiting are so beautiful and filled with such rich culture, and the future will have them learning to balance that rich culture with the tides of change into an Age of Aquarius.  And those tides are increasing their strength now during the Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.

This last week the markets have been showing weakness, and this is only the beginning of the transformation of our global economy.   Here in Europe, and I know elsewhere, many local economies are very dependent on tourism, as so much money is spent in stores and  restaurants by tourists.  It feels much like consumption by gluttony at times and shopping seems to be a very high priority  for travelers.

As the markets dim and travelers’fear of terrorism and Ebola rises, money will stop flowing from tourism and local life in many communities will change dramatically.

We must all prepare our selves for radical change that will reconnect us to soulful human values.

All the personal and world events that have been swirling through our lives since the Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year are setting the tables for more and greater transformation for our world and personal lives.

We have entered an important new chapter in our lives now, on the way to an Age of Aquarius.  This Autumn Eclipse Season will be followed by a Spring Eclipse Season 2015.

These two seasons will bring big shifts to our world, and most especially to the child of Europe, America.

That is because the USA natal chart from July 4 1776 is being powerfully affected by these recent Eclipse Season.

While many are complaining about the lack of power shown by the USA in world events now, in the bigger picture the USA is beginning to join the world community in a whole new way, as more of an equal in a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius.

We are now smack dab in the middle of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014, between two eclipses and moving into the second half of this current Mercury Retrograde cycle.

On Wednesday the 15th this coming week, there will be a 4th quarter moon phase beginning with the Moon in Cancer.

It is time that day to get into one’s inner cave and to process the last few weeks.   We are preparing for a strong Eclipse on October 23, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in passionate and intense Scorpio.

It will be time for new beginnings, and the inner depths of our collective beings will be ignited and brought more to the surface.  Secrets, previously restrained emotions and memories will seek to be expressed and seen.

It will be time to speak one’s truth and let the process play itself out after that.  Mercury will stay Retrograde till the 25th, so till then let your mind and soul process the recent shifts before coming to conclusions or making big decisions.

Next week when I am back we will look more deeply at Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 and it’s influence on our lives.

The new Autumn Eclipse Season Forecast is ready to view  http://youtu.be/TlfOl6KAup0 .

See you next week,

The Perfect Storm and Astrology Forecast for January 15-21

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 14, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Winter has finally hit, with a snow storm a couple days ago and a deep freeze on the way.  We are in the deep of Winter.

The Moon is waning now and moving down into its last Quarter phase, getting us prepared for a New Moon in Aquarius on January 23.

That will be a turning point day as Mars also goes Retrograde that day and the Chinese New Year of the Dragon begins.

But this week is low energy, winding down, making completions, cleaning up, preparing.    After the 23rd you can rev up your life engines again.

In the greater world a perfect storm is in the early stages of formation.  This perfect storm is the explosion that will shake up the Old World paradigm and reality.

Those of us on a spiritual soul journey into a new paradigm, a New Earth, an Aquarian Age, have been getting rewired into a new consciousness aligned with this World.

We have been facing spiritual crises that are meant to help us release the programming of the society of that Old World paradigm.   We have faced deep fears, let go of old beliefs and attitudes, endured physical health challenges, as we are being prepared for the storm ahead.

Each of us must be mentally and spiritually ready for the challenges ahead. The Old World is about to bring us events that will tend to evoke great fear.

The deep personal challenges we have each faced let us know that transformation into Unity consciousness is not an easy process. There are shadows and demons of separation consciousness to be faced and released on the path into Aquarian Age consciousness.

Many people are going to freak out because of the storms that are coming. The messages from the old world will be of fear, and hatred of those who are different.   They will tend to motivate you into a survival of the fittest mentality.   They will stoke you into nationalism and patriotism that will separate you from your fellow Earth citizen.   Enemies will be created by media and government, lies will be told to get you to choose sides.

But you have been cleansing, healing, and transforming your consciousness and life over the years. You know we are all One, that we have been getting prepared to create a New Earth, an Aquarian Age.

There is a war coming that is part of this perfect storm.  The Powers of the Old World are getting ready for a showdown with Iran.  War preparations are already beginning.  A False Flag incident is possible soon, one that is staged to look like a Pearl Harbor. Or perhaps more simply Israel will attack Iran.

This showdown with Iran has the potential to begin the dominoes falling into a war that will encompass much of the world.

The European economic crisis, which will become an American economic crisis, will form at a similar time period to the war cries with Iran, to help form this perfect storm.

Some people believe we can stop this all from happening with our prayers and positive visualizations. Perhaps Divine Intervention can be evoked to help us move into an Aquarian Age in a more graceful manner.

But it is also quite possible, as many prophecies have foretold, that these events are meant to be in order to bring about the transformation into a New World and New Earth.

But keep in mind that we are all on this Earth at just the right time. We are meant to be here now. We have incarnated at this time to be of assistance to our world in crisis.   The inner work and healing we have gone through over the years is in preparation for this crisis.

Many of you reading this will be leading the way into new consciousness and helping to create this New World.

The timing of this is difficult to ascertain.  The eclipse season this Spring 2012 is a likely time for the storm, but I believe the early dark winds of this storm will blow in sooner than that.  Watch for signs of the brewing storm near the coming New Moon in Aquarius as Mars goes Retrograde on January 23.  During the Mars Retrograde period there will likely be second thoughts on engaging in war, even as preparations are being made. Keep in mind that Mars is the archetypal god of war, and while it is retrograde we reflect on Mars issues.

Mars will go back direct on April 14.  Mercury will also be retrograde from March 12- April 4, so much contemplation and reflection will be in order then. Then sometime afterwards it is time to act and move forward.  Perhaps minds will be changed.

In May and June there are two powerful Eclipses. In June is the first pass of the revolutionary and evolutionary Uranus square Pluto.  This is the time period most likely when the Perfect Storm occurs, if it indeed will happen. The timing is not cut in stone.   Events will happen surrounding the May/June planetary intensities, but exact dates are almost impossible to ascertain.

There is nothing to worry and fret about, as all will unfold just as it meant to unfold.  You have been preparing, whether you are conscious of that fact or not. The shifts you have been experiencing are part of the process to put you just where you need to be.

We all know that life is not just about raising families, buying a home, making money, and consuming and buying. Life is a meaningful and sacred soul journey.  We are here on Earth as spiritual beings, reincarnating in order to return to our soul home of Unity consciousness.

No, all humans will not be entering Aquarian Age consciousness during this time of intense transition, but enough will to be able to create our new world.

This week, January 15-21, there is a waning last quarter Moon beginning early Monday morning. Then on Thursday there is a serious feeling in the air as the Sun squares Saturn. And on Friday the Sun moves into Aquarius, three days before the Moon joins the Sun in Aquarius to form a New Moon in Aquarius on January 23.

Aquarius time of year is a time for concentration on social networking, group activity, and social consciousness. It is also a time to break out of limiting boxes of consciousness, and to see things in inventive and creative ways. Aquarius tends toward distinct individuality, even if others may see it as weird and strange.  Aquarius is about rebellion against how one is supposed to be, and it is anti ego.  Aquarius hates tyranny and appreciates equality and freedom.  Aquarius walks the thin line between genius and crazy and loves to travel the network of mind and intellect.

See you next week,

Leo
