USA Transformation and Astrology Forecast December 11-17

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 10, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The last full moon of 2016 shows itself this week.   It is a Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini on Tuesday December 13 at 7:06 PM EST.

This makes a close conjunction with the Full Moon that happened on the day of Donald Trump’s birth.   But the Sun and Moon were turned around into opposite signs.

All Full Moons have the Sun and Moon opposite one another.  So for this Full Moon the Sun is in Sagittarius and the Moon is in Gemini.

At Donald Trump’s Full Moon birth the Sun was in Gemini and the Moon opposite in Sagittarius at approximately the same degrees as the one this week.

One of the reasons I predicted Trump’s nomination and subsequent election for president is because this natal Full Moon formation of his is very closely conjunct the USA Mars in Gemini from its natal chart of July 4 1776.

It is not merely coincidental that he has been choosing ex generals to his cabinet and to be his close advisors.  There are 3 already and probably more to come.  General David Petraeus is being considered for Secretary of State.

Look at how Donald Trump is so in favor of military and police.  These two powerful USA institutions will gain even more power and influence in the Donald Trump administration.

We must as citizens of the USA be very vigilant of domination by military and police now.

Remember that starting in April of 2014, deep core transformation of the USA began, as there was a Cardinal Grand Cross formation that made very close aspect to the USA natal Sun at 13+ degrees of Cancer.  There were two eclipses that month also.

In 2014 the Islamic State became a world threat, Russia took over Crimea in Ukraine, and there was a killing of a young black man by police in Ferguson Missouri.

All three of those issues began then and are still in the spotlight of  concern.  Each of those events represents deeper issues that are a part of USA transformation now.

The Uranus/Pluto square had an exact meeting in April 2014, which we have talked about at length as being the first major meeting of those two planets since their conjunction in the mid ’60s triggered the revolutionary movement of the ’60s and ’70s.

Uranus square Pluto had exact meetings from 2012-2015, triggering the transformation of the USA by aspecting its natal Sun and Saturn.

Yet the square is still in effect and influential now through 2017. Jupiter in Libra is forming with that square to make a Cardinal T-square formation that triggers the Cardinal Grand Cross from 2014.

For much of 2017 Jupiter will continue to activate a Cardinal T-square with Uranus and Pluto, promising a most powerful transformational year ahead.

Also this coming year Uranus and Jupiter will make aspect to the USA natal Pluto in Capricorn in the 2nd house.   So there will be great transformation of the USA economy and USA institutions that provide security.

The climax of this transformation of USA Pluto will come in the early 2020s when Saturn conjuncts USA natal Pluto, and there will also be a Pluto Return to its original USA natal placement.  It will be the first ever Pluto Return for the USA.

We can expect security, resources, and the security and economic institutions in the USA to break down and transform into new structures during the next 4-5 years.

The dismantling and transformation of the USA Military/Industrial complex will happen and last into the 2020’s- creating a vast opening for the Age of Aquarius to pour through.

Remember that President Eisenhower warned as he left office that that USA complex would continue to grow and take away our liberties.

We need to return to our core root principles and values in order to have a solid foundation for our place in the Age of Aquarius.   Military/Corporate/Economic control of our lives must end for this to happen .

Donald Trump will attempt to strengthen that Complex while at the same time helping to undo its controls. His Gemini twins work with both sides of that issue.

We will likely have attempts to dominate with order and to conserve the old “system”- while at the same time experiencing increasing chaos and anarchy to challenge that old system. Dominating Order seeks to keep the status quo, while free spirited chaos creates the atmosphere for change.

The next 4-5 years will be quite powerful here in the USA and in western civilization. There is a new world order emerging to form into the Diversity in Unity of the Age of Aquarius.

In the USA the control of our lives by the old paradigm will die with the Trump presidency.

The movement is toward the old minorties becoming the majority and creating true diversity in the USA. There is no stopping this movement.  It is in the numbers and well as spiritual reality.

The old white privileged paradigm in the USA is struggling to survive, and that is why it has gained temporary strength through a Trump presidency. It is a last gasp for that old world.

But as it comes down it will bring much darkness and turmoil to the country and world.  And of course we will experience great leaps of growth and consciousness transformation at the same time.

And this week brings us the Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini that connects with the USA natal Mars and Trump’s natal Sun and Moon.

This is a usually lively full moon full activating various types of communication. It will prompt us to integrate lots of information into some order, meaning and resolution.

This is a good time for learning and education.

Saturn conjunct this Full Moon, however, will push hard for resolution, conclusions, and limits. For some this will put a damper on otherwise lively communication at this annual Full Moon in Gemini.

There may also be a sense of fated events for the USA and soon to be president Trump around this time with the Saturn influence.  

Keep in mind that next week on the 19th Mercury will go retrograde and will stay retrograde until January 8.

Many have already been feeling its effects as it has slowed down appreciably before it will stop on the 19th and then go retrograde.

As you know our perceptions begin to change, our thinking and communcating sometimes become distorted. We rewind to times and people gone by, and we may begin to question our previous decisions. More on that next week.

Till next week,

Leo

Staying on the Path and Astrology Forecast September 4-10

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 3, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo has now passed, but we are still very much within the Eclipse Season. There is another eclipse on September 16: a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Pisces.

I know many of you noticed that right on the day of the eclipse on September 1 Hurricane Hermine hit Florida; there was a 7.2 Earthquake in New Zealand; and there was a terrorist attack in the Philippines.

The intensity was very strong leading up to the eclipse. Now as we are a few days past it, the intensity has lessened.    But that does not mean that powerful world events will stop too.  We can expect big world events to continue all the way through September at least.

In fact there was a 5.6 earthquake in Oklahoma on Saturday the 3rd of September.  The USA can now expect many important and potent events to occur in the country between now and August 21 2017, especially close to the actual date of August 21 2017.

On that date there will be a Total Eclipse of the Sun in Leo.  That eclipse will “travel” exclusively across the USA and will closely oppose the USA natal Moon in Aquarius.

The parts of the world that an eclipse travels over are the places most apt to experience the important events. The Moon in any natal chart is the planet that provides feelings of safety, comfort, and emotional well being. Those feelings will be challenged here in USA.

So expect our country to go through great change over the next year or more.  And of course the Presidential election will bring big change no matter who is elected, especially so if Donald Trump is elected.

Remember last year when I predicted with my planetary formula that Trump would win the Republican nomination, even though at the time he was one of 17 candidates and not even remotely considered a favorite to win.

I also wrote that Trump would likely win the Presidency if there were major events that would erupt in our country prior to the Presidential Election, events that would severely threaten USA security- like terrorist attacks or market crashes.

I believe that because Trump’s natal chart is closely tied to the USA natal Mars and Pluto, symbols of its power and strength in the world.

Eclipse season will either bring us such events or will at least give us some clues as to what to expect between now and the election.  And whomever becomes the next president will inherit a USA that will be going through major and difficult transformational change, especially leading up to the Total Eclipse on August 21 2017.

The structure of our world for an Age of Aquarius requires a world of equality and Diversity within Unity.  Many world changes will occur in order to make that happen.

We each individually will also be challenged to grow and transform during that time period.  All of this is a part of the accelerated change happening on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

This acceleration began in the early Spring 2014 when there was an eclipse that formed with other planets to become a Cardinal Grand Cross.

In the world at that time Islamic State invaded Mosul Iraq and declared itself a state and Caliphate in conjunction with its captured land in Syria.  This was the beginning of seeing the strength of Islamic State.

Also Russia at that time invaded Ukraine, upsetting the settled boundaries. This began a rift between western countries in Nato and Russia.

And China around that time was declaring land around the China Sea as its property against the beliefs of Philippines, Viet Nam and other Asian countries

Also soon after the Cardinal Grand Cross, there was a police killing of an unarmed black man in Ferguson Missouri that set off major riots.

All these issues are still unsettled and promise more potent events and transformational changes.

In our own lives most of us have entered into a New Chapter of our lives since March 2014. We have gone through much change, and in the process a letting go and releasing of that which represented the passing chapter in our lives.

The Universe is helping each one of us to transform our consciousness and lives in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

We are being shown the way to our more authentic Self and more authentic lives.  Homes, relationships, schooling, and careers have been changing as a result.

So now in the continuing process of transition into a New Season or Chapter of our lives, we become challenged to let go and release some more of what no longer fits who we are becoming.

And we will receive more magic, more synchronicity, more signs and symbols to inspire us on the path into our new consciousness and lives.

As we are still in Eclipse Season, while Mercury is Retrograde (till September 22), it is important for each of us to be flexible, to be more open in our hearts, and to not let our left brain logical minds to stress too much in order to squeeze out answers and solutions.

Let the process unfold over the next few weeks and be patient about receiving clarity  and direction.

This week we add a few new important planetary events.

The biggest is another exact square between Saturn and Neptune. As we explained in previous forecasts, there is a conflict between needs for security (Saturn) and desires for transformational change (Neptune).  Saturn is boundaries, rules, and regulations. Neptune is borderless, with needs to have more empathy and to trust and “let in”.

Issues in the world about immigrants and strict boundary control plays out within the USA and also within Europe, as well as with Islamic State changes of boundaries in Syria and Iraq.

In our personal lives our boundaries may be threatened by others; emotions may be out of control; ; conflicts between being firm and being empathic; and conflicts for following rules and being responsible versus wanting to escape so much anxiety and stress.

Also this week on Friday September 9 Jupiter enters Libra for a year, after having been in Virgo this past year.

Jupiter in Virgo is inspired by more order, efficiency, and logical analysis.  Jupiter in Libra is inspired by balance, equality, fairness, beauty, peace and most of all relationship.

This coming year is a good year to work on relationships of all kinds, and to find the connecting links between people and between all things.

Stay on your path this week no matter what is going on around you and inside you.

Till next week,

Leo

Hand of Time and Astrology Forecast August 7-13

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 6, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have passed through the gate of a New Moon in Leo from August 2. On August 18 that New Moon from August 2 will become Full- A Full Moon in Aquarius.

That will be an important Full Moon, as it begins a new Eclipse Season.  That Full Moon in Aquarius blows in the first winds of change connected to the issues that will dominate our consciousness during this new Eclipse Season.

The first Eclipse will be on September 1.  It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo.

The second and last Eclipse for this Eclipse Season will be on September 16.  It is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Pisces.

So we can expect another round of important and intense world events soon again.   There will likely be a continuation of issues around police treatment of African Americans,  and anger toward the police.

There will also likely be a continuation of terrorist events.

And of course the Presidential election process will intensify, though it seems hard to imagine it getting any more intense.

There will also likely be new world events that continue to shake up our reality and consciousness and help us to more greatly transform into the Age of Aquarius.

The economy and stock market could be vulnerable for change, especially so if interest rates are increased in September by the Federal Reserve.  The really volatile Middle East could also be ripe for new eruptions.  Also North Korea and China are getting more and more angry with neighboring countries, as well as western governments- especially the USA.

Turkey and  Russia and their roles in Syria could also be in the spotlight.  And of course events will likely erupt that will be complete surprises.

Just know that Eclipse Seasons accelerate the process of change and transformation in the world and in your personal life.

We have entered a big new chapter or season of our lives.  The transition time has been from Spring 2014 to now.  Look back at your life prior to Spring of 2014 and look at it now.

Look at the world prior to Spring 2014 and look at it now.

Islamic State was unheard of  and Ferguson had not happened yet, whch triggered all the racial tensions.  Russia had not invaded Ukraine and upset its relationship with the western world and Nato.

So now we are in an important new chapter of our collective and individual lives, a new chapter on the way toward the Age of Aquarius.

What still needs to transform in your life to make you aligned with the energies of the Age of Aquarius and also aligned with your own authentic higher self and its natural soul journey?

What is not aligned in your life now?  Are your relationships healthy?  Are your family connections other than dysfunctional?  Are you in a career or job that is satisfying and aligned with your true self or are you there just to surive financially?

Do you have love in your life or are your relaionships just relationships out of habit?

Are you still controlled by old belief systems, and patterns of behavior that keep you stuck?

Do you feel like your life is a rerun every day, with “Groundhog Day” repeats?

Do you put up with relationship patterns that are so dysfunctional that they are not heart or feeling connected anymore?  Do you just go through the motions without real connection?

Well, it is possible that the approaching Eclipse Season will break down some of these old ways and provide you with breakthroughs into new mindsets and ways.

In fact Eclipse Seasons usually do have breakdowns and breakthroughs, some small and sometimes rather large life changing ones.

Before we hit into Eclipse Season, however, we find ourselves in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Leo on August 2.    That Moon continues to wax and grow until the Full Moon in Pisces on August 18, at which time it begins its waning half of the cycle.

This Leo New Moon lunar cycle wants us to get more into our hearts and creative expression.  It beckons us to trust more and live from our spontaneous hearts and not so much from our calculating heads.

Have Leo fun this remaining summer, while it still lasts here in the Northern Hemisphere of Planet Earth.

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 1 will herald the call to get more into work and to create more order in our lives.  But that’s almost a month away.

There are only minor aspects this week, until Saturday when Saturn goes from Retrograde to Direct.

Saturn is gravity, but also the Hand Of Time.   So the clock of the Universe begins to tick again on Saturday.

You may feel or see events that seem rather fated around that date.  Saturn gives a sense of greater definiton, of rules and regulations that need to be followed.  It can make us also feel more secure, stable and grounded if not trapped and controlled.

Try to get a sense at around the Saturn turning of what new resolutions, intentions and commitments you want to make for your self and your life.

The Universal Hand of Time lets you know that time is limited and that you cannot keep putting off or procrastinating that which is important to you and your soul’s growth.

Till next week,

Leo

Finding our Way and Astrology Forecast May 3-9

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on May 2, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have now passed through the half way point of Spring Season 2015.  The Eclipses and exact Uranus square Pluto meeting have  also passed.

The phase we now enter will show the results of what was shaken up in the first half, when all those intense aspects occurred.

Events that are a direct result of that shake up will erupt this second half of Spring 2015 and into Summer 2015.   Late July/early August will be a turning point time period that shows us the way forward in our transformational journey.

For now we continue toward the Full Moon in Scorpio on Sunday May 3.  This is the Wesak Full Moon, experienced every year at the Full Moon of Sun in Taurus opposite the Moon in Scorpio.  

The Wesak Full Moon is metaphysically connected to Buddha,and is  considered a time to find greater peace and light.

On an energetic level this Full Moon on May 3 at 11:42 PM EDT emits frequencies of bodily comfort (Taurus) and emotional intensity (Scorpio).

Starting from 2 days before the actual Full Moon to around 2 days afterward, you may experience an internal tug of war or a tug of war with another. This conflict is between peace and comfort on the one hand and emotional intensity and drama on the other hand.

Taurus may seek to maintain that comfort even at the expense of real emotions or deep emotional connection.   Scorpio may want to stay hooked into an emotional drama even when there is path to a peaceful solution.

So even inside your self there is a need to balance allowing the truth of your feelings and emotions, no matter how intense or even painful- with a grounding into the stronghold of your body or nature.

This Full Moon also brings some resolution to what was begun around the New Moon in Aries on April 18.   Issues may need to be brought emotionally to the surface again before they can be better resolved.

This coming week, the first full week of May, has the Sun in Taurus mildly triggering the Uranus/Pluto square, pushing transformational issues forward.

Please keep in mind that even though we just passed the last exact square of Uranus and Pluto, that aspect will still be in orb (be close to one another) through 2018.  And its after effects will last even longer.

Remember that the last major meeting of Uranus and Pluto was in 1965-66, when they were conjunct.

That conjunction brought on the ’60s revolution, and the intensity of that revolution lasted through the ’70s.

Civil Rights for African Americans was one of the first burning issues erupting in ’65/66.  And when Martin Luther King was assassinated in April 1968, the Civil Rights revolution for blacks was at a climactic turning point.

Now as Uranus and Pluto square one another, Civil Rights issues are again in the spotlight.  LGBT Civil Rights, including the right to marry, has had many breakthroughs over the last few years. But mush bias and prejudice remains

And over the last few years, even after an African American was elected President of the USA, racial issues have been brought back to awareness: Travon Martin, Ferguson, and now Freddy Gray.

Since we are now in transition from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius, we are moving inexorably into a world of equality and a world of Diversity in Unity. 

All are equal members of the human family, regardless of race, origin, gender, sexual orientation, or lifestyle.

No one is intrinsically better than another.   And African American rights as well as LGBT rights are so important now as these groups have been quite arguably the most oppressed over many years.

And yes all groups of people need to take responsibility for their actions, and to find the place in their hearts that knows we are all one.

But first any blocks of age-old prejudice need to be addressed and released.  And of course attitudes of prejudice and bias can be experienced by any race or nationality or gender or sexual orientation.

But those in power are the ones who can oppress and dominate and abuse.   And  that abuse of power is what needs to be more fully investigated in cases like Ferguson and Freddy Gray.

Our new world cannot tolerate such behavior anymore.

The great hope now is that there can be a more graceful entrance into the Age of Aquarius.

Will there be riots, world wars, militant revolutions, and economic crashes that break down the doors of the old guard’s castles of dominance?

Or can there be sufficient awakenings, heart openings, and healings that will preclude the need for such devastation?

I believe we will know before the end of the year what the general pathway into the Age of Aquarius will look like.

In your personal life now, you can ask the same brand of question:  How much does your old life need drastic overhaul in order to bring you into a more purposeful. authentic, healthy, connected, loving  and meaningful life.

Do you need an overhaul of your spiritual practices, beliefs, health habits, relationships, career, family, and/or home?

Or are you needing merely to recommit your self to your own soul path and continue to make the changes needed?

How much of old societal and family programming still controls your attitudes, beliefs, and actions?

Do you know and accept who you really are, without unfair judgment or self abuse?

Do you know you live in a meaningful Universe that will show your soul the Way to its fulfillment?

Till next week,

Leo

2015: Year of Revolutionary and Evolutionary Change and Astrology Forecast December 28- January 3

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 27, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

2014 is coming to a close this week.  For most it has been a powerful year of change, transformational change into a new chapter of life.

New jobs, homes, relationships have manifested.   A new outlook on life, new spiritual perspectives and practices, awakenings, disillusionment, and breaking out of old programming are other ways change had been activated this past year.

The most important astrological event was the Cardinal Grand Cross last spring and early summer.  It combined with a couple of eclipses and Uranus square Pluto then also.

And in the autumn there were two more eclipses, and Uranus and Pluto were exactly square again.

In the greater world the Cardinal Grand Cross activated several prominent world events including the turmoil in Ukraine; the Ebola scare; the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza; the advancement of ISIS in Iraq and Syria; the killing of unarmed black men in Ferguson, New York and elsewhere; and the serious attempts to resolve issues with Iran.

We let you know last winter that the Cardinal Grand Cross would initiate a most important phase of transformation into an Age of Aquarius.  And combined with the exact Uranus/Pluto square that has been lasting from 2012-1015, we would see our world go through immense change both personally and globally.

We also let you know that the Cardinal Grand Cross was very close to America’s natal Sun in Cancer from its birth chart of July 4, 1776.   That would mean the United States would begin its transformation into a more equal member of the world community, beginning to let go of its Superpower status at the head of a western Empire on Earth.  It means America will change greatly in very fundamental ways.

This change had only just begun at the Cardinal Grand Cross and eclipses in April 2014. We predicted that the world as we know it would be quite altered in the 18 months after the April 2014 aspects.

That takes us to Autumn 2015 and yes America’s economy and standing in the world will change dramatically during the next 10 or 11 months.

The Middle East will continue to be a focal point of change, and it could very well trigger a world war during these next several months.  But also it is possible instead, as we have seen with the negotiations with Iran and the opening of relations with Cuba, changes that are aligned with the Age of Aquarius may require no major conflicts or wars.

In personal lives there will be more movement toward letting go of old programming from society and family that keeps you stuck in old self defeating ways.

There will be more awakening to truths that will set you free of the chains of dysfunctional and toxic beliefs, attitudes and patterns.

You will be assisted by the Universe to leave relationships, homes, and career orientations that are not aligned with your authentic being and your true function in the world community.

Another powerful year of change is ahead.

And the most meaningful time period this year will be late winter and spring.   Uranus will make its last exact square to Pluto on March 16, followed closely by a very strong Spring Equinox Day that will include a Total Solar Eclipse in very late Pisces.

This is symbolic of great clearings and endings on the one hand, and very important fresh new winds of renewal. This will all be followed by another eclipse, a Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries/Libra that connects with the Uranus/Pluto square to form a powerful Cardinal T-Square, almost as important as the Cardinal Grand Cross.

These aspects in late winter and spring of 2015 can be looked at as “Grand Openings” into the full immersion of our human souls into the transition from a Pisces Age to a Age of Aquarius.

World Events that last into the summer of 2015 and beyond will change our world perhaps even more drastically than in 2014.

There will be no more holding onto the shore of the old ways without a great price to pay spiritually, psychologically and perhaps even physically.

The ways you have been changing to make your self healthier spiritually, mentally and physically will require a stronger commitment from you during the late winter and spring.

Sitting on the fence of two worlds will no longer work, as the fence is going to break down.

It will be a wonder-full year of shifting tides in 2015.

This coming week brings the culture’s symbolic date for changing years.

And it could be a very energized New Year’s Eve and Day as the waxing Moon this week lasts all the way to Sunday the 4th at the Full Moon in Cancer, which we will talk more about next week.

In addition to the waxing phase of the lunar cycle playing out at the transition between 2014 and 2015; there will also be a very spirited Mars in Aquarius opposite Jupiter in Leo then.

So the winds of increasing energy will blow in this week and January 1 is the day when Mars makes exact aspect to Jupiter.

Mars in Aquarius brings in  high energies with social consciousness and desires for social connection even if only on social media.   Jupiter in Leo brings inspiration into creative and open-hearted expression.  There is also a greater tendency to self focus with Jupiter in Leo.

Many people could even be rather manic with this aspect, and this may cause leaps into what could bring trouble.  In the greater world this could translate into individuals or groups leaping into dangerous adventures.

Allow yourself to feel joy and positive vibes, but be careful not to leap before you look.

Next week’s Full Moon in Cancer will include both Uranus and especially Pluto in its signature, so this could be a week of change too.

Remember also that we are in Sun in Capricorn time of year, so of course resolutions are in order.  Also Sun in Capricorn means we can make plans to manifest our dreams or ideas now.  That will require, however, concrete plans, organization, discipline, and structured steps to implementing the plan.

Many people demonize Capricorn’s ruling planet, Saturn.  But Saturn represents the gravitational pull to keep free spirits here on Earth to fulfill their purpose in a given lifetime.

So use this Capricorn time of year to take full responsibility for your life and hence out of victim mentality.  That will make Saturn as your servant, not your tormenter any longer.

See you next week,

Leo

Mother in the Dark and Astrology Forecast December 14-20

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on December 13, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The important and powerfully transformational Uranus/Pluto square is exact on December 14/15.

Old phases of our life continue to die as we open to the new.  We sometimes struggle in the transition.

As I have been writing, I received a call telling me our cat Emily is now in the process of dying today. We are letting her die naturally at home, and the vet said she is very close to leaving this dimension.

She is over 18 years old, and her death reminds me of a whole phase of my life that she has been a part of.   This event helps to clarify the chapter that is ending and what may be beginning.   As has been for me with Emily, deeper issues may come to us in the form of outer events and/or through inner soul stirrings coming to the surface of our consciousness.

Let yourself feel and go deeper, and let your mind wander where it wants to go naturally in reflection.  That allows your soul to join your mind in the experience of a transition.

Uranus and Pluto now are helping us through the transition and helping to transform our lives in alignment with the great shifting tides of change happening in our greater world as well.

Uranus awakens, takes us outside our usual boxes of limited thought or bubbles of escapism.

Uranus can bring events or thoughts into our lives with often lightning like speed and sometimes with shock value.   Though at the time it may bring what is seemingly unwanted, it nevertheless has the effect of liberating us from limiting situations and old attitudes. We can connect the dots of our life better as a result.

Pluto causes intensity and primal emotions to be aroused, and brings up issues that may have been previously buried in the corners of our psyche and mind.

Together these two planets may bring crisis of one sort or another.  In the process of said crisis, we are usually challenged to let go and release on the one hand.  And on the other hand we are being pushed forward in our consciousness and in our lives.  The death today of Emily is doing just that, as sad as it is too.

We have talked many times of how this year has been about endings, deaths of old chapters in our lives.  It has been also about entering new seasons of our lives, about opening to new ideas, new beliefs and new ways.

This exact square of Uranus and Pluto, the 6th of 7 that are occurring from 2012-2015, are bringing revolutionary and evolutionary times both globally and personally.

If we are still hanging onto keeping things the same or going back to “normal”,  we may be quite frustrated or disappointed.    There are new beginnings wanting to be born, a new normal on its way.

Uranus and Pluto were in exact conjunction in 1965-66, and this brought on the important shifts of consciousness and ways of living for the ’60s revolutionary times.

It is no mere coincidence that racial issues are being stoked again as in the ’60s, and obviously it is because the job was not completed back then.   Women’s issues are front and center also, in part because of the allegations against Bill Cosby and his alleged abusive treatment of many women.

The song “The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius” was popular back in the ’60s when inspiration of a a new and better way to be on this Earth in human community was shining brightly through all the chaos and darkness.

And personal lives were going through so much as well. Relationships were often feeling not right anymore, jobs and careers were losing their sense of purpose.  Families were becoming more emotionally volatile as individuals were not always seeing “eye-to eye” anymore about important personal and global issues. The same is happening again for many as we are collectively awakening to Truth and Love.

And now as we experience another exact Uranus/Neptune aspect over the next few days, many are feeling the tides of change.  Some are feeling this as their emotions are stronger or more chaotic. Others are feeling these shifts in their nervous systems being more stressed or in their bodies, with various aches, pains, or discomforts.

If so, tune in to the emotional component if you can, the memories and visuals, the issues that need healing or resolution.

This is a turning point period of time, with Uranus square Pluto exact again.  And remember that we are moving through darker days now on the way to Winter Solstice 2014.  And we are also in the darker half of the lunar cycle, since we moved past the half way point at the Full Moon last week.

Then later this weekend we enter the last quarter Moon phase, as the Moon’s reflected light gets more and more dim.

If you feel the need to be alone and in a protected place, do it.  If you feel the need to go deeper into your feelings, do it. If you feel the need to grieve, please do it.

After Uranus squares Pluto during the last quarter Moon phase, and as we go darker toward the Winter Solstice, we are being held by the Great Mother’s comforting arms.

Many tend to feel depressed at this time of year, in large part because of the darkening of the light; but if you can allow the organic process to unfold and can feel the Divine Feminine holding your soul, you may be able to sense the turning to the light that is coming at the Winter Solstice.

The Winter Solstice, which brings the Sun into Capricorn, will be on December 21 at 6:03 PM EST.  The New Moon in Capricorn, which brings the Sun and Moon together in Capricorn with new beginnings, will be on the 21st at 8:36 PM EST.

We will be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel then.  And to synchronize with that Solstice and New Moon on the 21st will be transformational awakener Uranus going back Direct.

Its energy of awakening is perfect as we also awaken to the turning to more light at both the Solstice and New Moon.

So as you allow yourself to go deeper in your feelings and to perhaps feel some of your own darkness, it is best to do so in some type of meditation or reflection.

If instead during these darkening times you feel seduced by your inner demons or old self-hating stories, let them gently go and replace them with a surrender to the Feminine side of the Divine, one that holds you and reassures you that you are loved for being just who you are, no matter what the circumstances.

Till next week,

Leo

To Be or Not to Be and Astrology Forecast December 7-14.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 6, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Today Saturday December 6 brings us a Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini at 7:27 AM EST.    So leading up to this Full Moon energies have been rising.   Sagittarius is fire and Gemini is air, so both of these signs go “up and out”, not “down and in”.   It therefore is a yang-like Full Moon, extroverted by nature.

And of course Full Moons are energized not matter what the signs involved.  After Full Moons, however, we enter the waning Moon phase of the lunar cycle.  In other words energies slow down and are more tempered.

This Full Moon has brought some hope, new ideas, and animated conversations to many.  Some may also actually feel as if they have turned a corner and begun to shed some negative feelings and thoughts.

Perhaps there is even a sense of rebirth for some.  It is a rather complicated time, however, planetarily speaking.

That is because as energies have been rising with the approaching Full Moon, at the same time we are moving down into the Winter Solstice.  And in so doing, we are moving into darker days.

Winter Solstice is the turning point when dark minutes have reached their zenith and light minutes begin to increase.

So at this time of year, many are feeling a need to put the proverbial blanket over their heads and retreat to their inner domain. They need to feel their feelings, to be alone, to contemplate and reflect.

At the same time the Sun in Sagittarius brings fiery enthusiasm that connects well with holiday spirit.

Then comes the Sagittarius/Gemini Full Moon and energies are wanting to rise even more.  Jupiter changing directions and going retrograde on Monday December 8 brings even more enthusiasm.

But of course at the same time we are being pulled downward by Winter Solstice on the way, and days getting darker and colder.

And the mixed up energetics now can cause anxiety, especially so with the rush and push and materialism of the holiday season.

And this year, unlike other years when this same up and down dynamic plays out, making many to feel kind of “bi-polar”; we additionally have a most powerful Uranus square Pluto aspect coming on December 14/15. 

This highly transformational square has been especially strong this year as it formed with the Cardinal Grand Cross and the eclipses.

We have been motivated to leave behind old ways and chapters of our lives, old self defeating attitudes and beliefs.  At the same time we have been trying to acclimate to new experiences, new phases of our lives.

And now as we bring in this next exact square of Uranus and Pluto on December 14/15, we are facing another turning point.  This square is only a few days before the Winter Solstice on December 21, making the Uranus/Pluto square more meaningful.

And this Winter Solstice is more important than usual as it forms a New Moon in Capricorn that day, and contains the wake-up call of Uranus going direct that day also. More on this in a later week.

What does it all mean as we get closer to ending a most powerful year of change in 2014?

Well all transformational challenges bring us to choices. Outcomes are not necessarily preordained.  We humans make choices, choices that affect how are lives will then go.

And the most important choice at every big transformational turning point is the question of “To Be or Not to Be”?

Do I choose to live, to have life, to see my rough and challenging events as meaningful on my road of personal evolution- or not?

Was the breakup of my relationship, the loss of my job, the sickness I incurred, the loss of my pet, etc,  challenges to growth,  endings and beginnings of new seasons of life,  transformational turning points,  times to release that which was not right for me anymore, and times for rebirth into a more authentic and meaningful life?

Or do I decide I am a victim, life is hopeless, I am a failure, I have wasted my life, I will never break bad patterns, never have a good life, and feel stuck and defeated?

What the Universe brings to us may not be within our control, but what we do with it is.  By not falling into victimhood, we empower ourselves and change our lives.  We then set a foundation for having the Universe bring us better events in the future, as the law of attraction shifts for the better.

On a deeper level of our consciousness we can see the glass of life as half full instead of half empty. It is often a very subtle shift deep inside, but that shift is ultimately earth shaking and can move mountains.

Its roots are in love instead of fear, trust and faith instead of cynicism.

So this time period between now and winter solstice is important mentally and spiritually, as we decide on positive transformation or a sliding downward.

In the greater world there has been so much shaking up this year, and it is so easy to get discouraged and depressed about it.  It is so easy to be cynical about our world.

Our government is dysfunctional and our society often seems to be not connected to our better human values.

There are growing threats from Islamic State and Al Queda.   The Middle East seems more messed up than ever.  And lately the problems of race in America seem worse than ever.

All at once it has come to our mass attention how black men who are unarmed can be killed by police. It should make no difference whether they have previous felony convictions or not.  And the black men in New York and Ferguson committed mainly minor offenses like selling illegal cigarettes.

And even if they refused to listen to police commands, did they deserve to die as a result?  Does an unarmed man, like the one in Ferguson, need 12 bullets fired at him, six of which hit him?

Does not a man in New York, who is also unarmed, and pleading that he is choking and cannot breathe, deserve to be let go of the choke hold so he can breathe?

And why do so many black men fill our prisons, often for only drug offenses? How can we not see the prejudice that has tried to emasculate these men since slavery?  How can we not admit to ourselves that there is tendency to see black men as criminals, and to treat them as such?

How can we not see that when you treat people as if they are mean dogs, then they will show you just what you want to see?

Do you believe black men are bad by nature?  And that is why they fill up our prisons?  Or can we see a bigger picture of a society needing a big overhaul of consciousness and behavior around race relations?

And yes it is true that prejudice goes both ways and that so many blacks have hatred for whites too.  But who has been in power all these years?  Who has abused that power going all the way back to slavery?

In a new age of equality and Diversity in Unity, we will heal these wounds; and hopefully these current events will help us to do so.

There is a dialogue going on now that can be a motivation for healing and better equality.

The Universe is bringing us these issues, so we can decide what we will think and what we will feel and what we will do for change.  As has been previously stated, we are at an important turning point now.

And even if you agree that the police and society have been unfair to black men, it would not be aligned to hate the police and white authorities as a result.

In the Old Age there is a need to fight against enemies and to make some people superior and better than others.   And it is those old paradigm values that need to change.  The police are not bad in themselves, but instead are reflections of a societal attitude to make some people better than others and to create enemies of the system and state who must be crushed.

And yes if you are seeing more emphasis on police and military, you may be worried about a growing police state.  That police state represents our collective desire to keep the old paradigm alive, to feel secure, and to keep the supposed threats controlled.

But there is the light of the new world and new paradigm trying to penetrate the dark stuck blocks of the old world.  Let it in. Open to that which brings love and light. As you do, you will feel better and safer than you imagined.

As we shift our collective consciousness to equality and knowing we are all in the same family,  we can build a world aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

See you next week,

Leo
