Power and Astrology Forecast October 8-14.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 7, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week we navigated through a strong Aries Full Moon.  So therefore this week we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle, and we will continue that downward journey until a New Moon in Libra on October 19.

The big news this week, however, in that expansive Jupiter leaves Libra and enters Scorpio on October 10. It will stay there for one year.

Jupiter has been in Libra for the last year. And as we wrote last week Jupiter has a twelve year cycle and so comes back to the same sign every 12 years.  It was last in Scorpio in 2006.

What was your life like back in 2006, especially in regards to issues of passion, power, and primal instincts.  And what was that year like for personal transformation?  Did you release what needed to be let go, and did you allow those transformational energies to start you on a new path.  That could be in any area of life: work, relationship, home, etc.

Out in the global arena of life in 2006 Israel had a war with Hezbollah of Lebanon, but most especially pertinent to today, in 2006 North Korea tested for the first time a nuclear weapon.

Scorpio is energetically about power, which can translate into war, and certainly into bombs or nuclear bombs.  It is interesting that nuclear weapons are made of Plutonium or Uranium.

Of course two of the three transformational planets in astrology are Uranus and Pluto.  And Pluto which is power, is most like a nuclear weapon.  And Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio.

While Jupiter was in Libra, it showed expansiveness in issues of making relationship, creating beauty, finding balance, and keeping peace.

Jupiter in Scorpio takes the gloves off, gets beyond the pretty wrappings, and gets down to real business- at the core of truth and reality.

This year we learn to open up previously hidden secrets, go beyond mere politeness, and tell our deeper truth from a more instinctual place inside.

Passion comes back stronger than before, and shows us what we really desire at a core level of our being.  Sexuality is ruled by Scorpio also, and will tend to expand more fully into your life this coming year.

In the global picture, as Jupiter moves into Scorpio this week,  issues with Syria, Israel, Iran, and North Korea will intensify.

Powerful storms or earthquakes will return.  Power struggles may tend to be more nasty.

People tend to demonize Scorpio, ruled by the guardian of the Hades underworld planet Pluto.

Civil society tends to want to banish Scorpio, religion can make it seem sinful.

In reality it is a darkness, but that darkness is natural- not bad or good.

In the yin/yang symbol there is light and dark, yin and yang, brought together in wholeness.

Dark minutes of the day are equal with light minutes of the day- over a year’s time.

It is like a negative electrical charge, which is neither good or bad.

If that darkness or passion, that depth of powerful emotion is suppressed or repressed for too long, it becomes a monster when finally let out.

Scorpio is about power, and on a young soul that easily becomes “power over” or power dominating others.

In a more mature soul it is empowerment, personal empowerment, an ability to stand strong. It is not about domination, but is about passion.

Both Hitler and Gandhi were prominent when Pluto (ruler of Scorpio) was discovered in 1930.

There is the difference in how power can manifest in a human.  Gandhi used his power to empower the Indian people to stand up peacefully to the Empire of England. This began the liberation of the people of India.

So as Jupiter travels into Scorpio, do not be afraid that you will be like those people who abused their power and abused you.

Go down deep inside and make sure your inner power is not ruled by your desire to hurt or bully someone else.   But if you can use the anger to empower yourself to be a self respecting individual, you will be OK.

A day before Jupiter enters Scorpio on October 10, Mercury and the Sun will square Scorpionic Pluto.  So already you will feel the power want to come to the surface.

Sunday the 8th through Friday the 13th will likely present us with storms, of one sort or another.

An actual storm like a hurricane, or an energetic storm like North Korea flexing its nuclear muscle, or Trump moving toward confrontation with Iran, will likely manifest during that time period.

And speaking of Friday the 13th this coming week, that superstition has its roots in a cultural patriarchal fear of the Feminine.

I believe that connection with Friday the 13th is likely because in many western countries Friday is Venus Day, as in Italy it is Venerdi (Venus day). In English speaking countries it is Friday, named after Venus like Goddess Frieda.

And 13 is known as a number of the Feminine, as there are 13 lunar cycles of the year and 13 womanly cycles of a year, so to speak.

The Power of the Mysteries of the Feminine are feared in this world, as was the power of the “witches”, demonized and abused by so-called christian society. Power of the Masculine and Feminine are meant to be equal, not at war.

Pluto/Scorpio also rules the world of the Occult and Feminine Mystery Powers.  Watch the power of that Feminine increase in strength as Jupiter moves through Scorpio this coming year.

Goddess Kali will be more empowered, so that arrogance and inflated ego can be eliminated.

Open more this year to the mystery of life, as all in this Universe and Earthly world is not governed by logic and left brain linear ego thought.

Surrender to that mystery and observe how transformation gets more powerful, so that the cycles of death and birth can live within that transformational process.

till next week,

Leo

Turning up the Rock and Roll Music and Astrology Forecast June 8-14

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 7, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have entered the Mercury Retrograde time period now.   It will last until July 1.

This could be an especially challenging Mercury Retrograde.  That is because Mars will continue to journey through Cardinal sign Libra until it triggers the transformational planets from the Cross: Uranus and Pluto, and also the  degrees of the Cardinal Grand Cross from last April.

It will in that process square transiting Pluto on June 14, touch the exact degrees of the Cardinal Grand Cross from April on June 16-17, and then on June 25 it opposes transiting Uranus.

Triggers are known to touch off issues that have not been fully resolved, and often times these issues can be brought back quite dramatically and intensely.  What came up for you during the March-May period of the Cross’ influence may come back for further processing, but long standing issues from the more long ago past may also come back as part of the Mercury Retrograde influence.

Often during Mercury Retrograde people or memories or dreams remind us of the past, and motivate us to relive sweet and/or bitter times.   Music may also serve the purpose of bringing back feelings or thoughts from days gone by.

Keep in mind that Mercury Retrograde is meant to shift our focus, shift our perceptions, change our mindset so that we can see with new eyes.

But that new sight will not be clear until after Mercury goes back Direct again.  So do not jump to any conclusions, make any rash decisions,  or shift your life direction until Mercury goes back Direct again in July.

That advice is especially pertinent this current Mercury Retrograde period, as the Cardinal Grand Cross will be triggered, potentially causing additional confusion and emotional turmoil.

The ability to find “logic” and objectivity in your usual ways may be compromised at this time.

So it is best if you can to retreat, reflect, and re-member. Use your imagination and heart more, as your left brain’s way of perceiving may not be operating as it usually does.

In the greater world tensions will increase over the next few weeks, and communication issues may get in the way of people truly understanding one another’s position.

There is a restructuring of our world going on now, and rebalancing of power. During the Cardinal Grand Cross influence of March through May, Russia was threatening Western interests in Ukraine, China was becoming more assertive about its interests, and Iran was in the spotlight working out its nuclear issues with world powers.

Israel and the USA were also more at odds with one another around the Palestinian issue, an issue that is now threatening to get more out of hand.

It would not take much now to touch off world storms that could get out of control.

But overall, there is a powerful wave of new light and energy that seeks to penetrate our collective and individual bodies and souls.   When there is a block that stops the light and energy from flowing through, there will then be issues that come up as red flags alerting us to make changes.

That can come in the form of physical problems, emotional upsets, or intense events in our individual lives.   And in the greater world  explosive or seemingly destructive events alert us to the knowledge that something is out of balance, unaligned, corrupted, diseased, and/or toxic, that needs to be healed and transformed.

For instance there are more and more incidents of people going crazy and perpetrating mass murder, in shopping malls, the workplace, schools, military bases, etc.

This is happening because of the dysfunctional and toxic paradigm we are living under, because of the lack of love and truth in our world, because our human priorities are out of whack, in that we care more about our material concerns and our security than we do about real human values.

The energies of the Age of Aquarius are powerful, but human stubbornness is powerful too.  We often fight with all our power to keep things just as they are, no matter what.

We cannot avoid the energies of change, however, especially now as they are so powerful.  But  we can choose to seek alignment with these changes and evolve, or we can instead choose to make our individual wills and egos more important.

Trust the process now, open your heart to the energies, and make intention to stay in your heart no matter what.  If you stay in your heart or at least do not stray for long, you will be able to listen: to others, to the Universe, and to your own deeper soul.

It is most important now, especially as we move through the potential confusion and chaos of Mercury Retrograde and other important aspects now, to let go to the Bigger Picture, even while you are crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s in your life. Do not be limited by the view of the little picture. There is meaning to all that is happening and the little voice inside your soul, the one you are in touch with while meditating or being in nature, will align you and connect you even and especially during life’s storms.

This week, besides Mercury going Retrograde, Neptune changes directions and goes Retrograde on Monday June 9.   So now and for the next several days, things may be more confusing and out of control.  But they also hold the potential for more synchronicity and magic too.

Neptune brings the flow of the inner tides through our consciousness, brings the music of the spheres through our hearts.

If you can stay surrendered and in your heart, not straining your brain for answers, open to the magic, you will be taken into the flow and into the connections that bring all together in Oneness.  There you will be shown the signs and symbols, the synchronicities, the magic.

All is possible, win/win is there for all disputes, all seeming problems have solution or at least meaning.

Later in the week, on Friday the 13th, there is a Full Moon in Sagittarius at 12:11 AM EDT. This particular Full Moon is always sorting through the facts and evidence for meaning and solution.  This Full Moon contains the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Sagittarius. Gemini is about information and facts that are sometimes coming in a fast and scattered pace. Sagittarius is about finding meaning and solution. Gemini and Sagittarius, especially during Mercury Retrograde, can bring issues that are very challenging to make sense of at times.  Gemini is also mental activity and Sagittarius is intuition and inspiration.  So bringing those together to solve problems is important at this Full Moon.

Friday the 13th is sometimes presented in a superstitious way as scary or something to be worried about.  This goes back to a prejudice against the Feminine mysteries and Feminine power.  13 is number of the Feminine, as there are 13 lunar “months” of the year while only 12 solar ones. And if Christ had 13 disciples instead of 12, as many believe Mary Magdalene was the 13th, there would obviously be a new Feminine flavor to the Christ story.

And Friday in may cultures is represented by name as Venus Day like in Italian which is Venerdi or even in English which is Frieda Day or Friday, Frieda being a Goddess similar to Venus.

So celebrate the Feminine this Friday the 13th with the Full Moon.

And then on Saturday June 14 Mars begins to trigger the Grand Cross as it square Pluto

So with all the aspects going on,  you may be challenged to bring your consciousness and “talents” to the “next level”.

All in all we are now in for a ride into more lively,  interesting, spirit evoking energies that may also seem rather scattered, confusing and chaotic at times.

See you next week,

Leo

Better Navigating Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast June 1-7

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on May 31, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we continue through the lunar cycle that began last week at the Gemini New Moon.    So Gemini themes continue to be important:  learning, thinking, communicating, delivering and collecting information, socializing.

It is a good time now to take new classes or even just learn new things in any way that happens.   Gemini is about sharing information with others, taking information in and delivering information out.  There are no judgments in such sharing, no conclusions needed.  There is a satisfaction in learning and in gaining new facts

Gemini is not always concerned in how the information is being received and so it can seem insensitive, when in actuality it sees its “job” as merely to objectively state the facts.   It can be like a pure journalist, one whose job is to just objectively state what happened, not judge or give opinion.  That can seem cold to those who are more feeling oriented.

For instance if one asks a pure Gemini to describe how someone else looks, the fact stating Gemini may say “brown hair, blue eyes, thin legs, big feet and ears, large belly”.  It is merely stating the facts.  More sensitive people might feel embarrassed to hear someone say they have big feet and ears and a large belly.

So some Gemini’s need to learn to filter their natural way of communicating in order to not hurt people’s feelings.  Finding work or activities that appreciate their objective minds and communicating styles would be good for them.

Now sometimes Gemini can get so filled with information and have so many different thoughts or activities to work through that it gets scattered or confused or spacy, not grounded.

But usually it is so bright and aware, curious and questioning, needing more and more puzzles or intellectual challenges.

Speaking of mental workings and communication, the “ruling” planet of Gemini, Mercury, will be going Retrograde again late this coming week.

Next Saturday June 7 at 7:56 AM EDT Mercury will go Retrograde. It will stay that way until July 1 at 8:50 AM EDT.

Mercury is the “ruling” planet of both Gemini and Virgo, and as such can be driven by details, by needs to “figure it out”.

This Mercury will go Retrograde in Cancer, but will actually spend most of its time in Gemini.  And the Sun will be in Gemini also during much of the time Mercury will be Retrograde.

So be careful not to get overwhelmed with details, mental anxiety and stress, and obsessive needs to figure everything out.   Left brain ways of operating will not be as effective as usual, and events may come into your life that strongly suggest you use other means of effectiveness.   If you can meditate more, use your imagination, your intuition and creative thought, then the Retrograde period will be easier. If you can trust your heart more or at least learn to make better relationship between heart and head, then you may be gaining a lot during the Mercury Retrograde period of time.

Mercury Retrograde is not a time to be superstitiously feared or dreaded.   It happens 3-4 times a year and is a part of the natural process of planetary movements.  It is not meant to bring pain or suffering.  Instead it is meant to help readjust our thinking or communication, to shift our perceptions, to give pause to what we have previously decided or to a belief or attitude that no longer serves our soul’s journey, and to trust our hearts and the Universe more.

Sometimes we are so stressed to figure something out so we can fix something that is not working for us in our life, or so we can make a decision that is weighing on us.   We want the stress and anxiety to go away, so we want our answers fast.

But Mercury Retrograde often teaches us that issues need to unfold, that time needs to go by, before an answer is revealed. We learn it is not about our mind figuring out an answer, but instead it is about a process that needs to unfold before clarity can be found, before direction can be seen.   Our soul knows there is magic in the unknown, and allowing a process to unfold brings us that which cannot always be seen by our logical mind.

If I am given a choice between choosing a job at Wendy’s or one at a local department store, I may go back and forth with the pros and cons of each and end up not knowing which is best. I wrack my brain trying to “figure it out”. I stress and get much anxiety forcing my brain to come to a decision, when in actuality neither one feels right to me.

So I let it go, trusting the answer will come to me at the right time. may even go past the time I was supposed to make the decision.

You know those times when you try so hard to remember someone’s name or where they live or some other detail, and trying so hard with your brain just does not bring an answer. Then you let it go, and half an hour later the name or address just comes into your mind without you trying?

And other times, maybe during Mercury Retrograde, you go back and forth straining your brain trying to choose between that Wendy’s or department store job, and all you do is stress with no answer.

Then you let it go, and reflect and meditate and go into your heart.  You allow yourself to wait and trust, to trust your deeper soul, your heart, and the Universe.

A letter comes in the mail a few days later accepting you into a school you had forgotten you had applied to 6 months ago as you had figured you were not accepted.

Your true answer did not reside in the two options you were considering.   This is a potential value to Mercury Retrograde.  You may find it difficult, but it was meant to help you change your perception, to help you learn to trust your deeper soul and the Universe more.

Now of course every Mercury Retrograde does not always bring such treasures, but it will usually help you to shift your perceptions and perhaps even some rigid paradigm you may be clinging to.

These times now are bringing such rapid shifts of consciousness and change, and it is best to be flexible and open. And most of all it is best to stay awake and aware, present and accounted for.   Judgment of your self is not good, but being honest with yourself, holding your self accountable, and wanting to transform the old and toxic patterns is good.

In the greater world important and transformational events will likely begin mid June as Mars reignites the Grand Cross from April, and then events may get even more powerful in late July and August. And then there will be another strong Eclipse Season this autumn 2014.

And keep in mind that on Friday June 13 there is a Full Moon in Sagittarius: Friday the 13th Full Moon.  That will be a most auspicious time to honor the Feminine, the mysteries and beauty of the Feminine, the energies bursting at the seams of our collective human consciousness, ready to help our world evolve and heal.  More on that next week.

You are moving more and more strongly into your authentic soul self, more and more strongly connected to the Universe and the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Navigating the New Reality and Astrology Forecast July 8-15

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 7, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are collectively now residing in the new land that was created as a result of the tremendous power of the recent planetary configurations, including the Eclipses, Venus Retrograde and Venus Passage, and the first pass of Uranus square Pluto.

No we are not anywhere near being anchored in this new reality, but nevertheless we are moving forward into it.  Many new and important events have swirled into our lives.

So many are looking at new, changed, or changing relationships since Venus Retrograde and the Venus Passage.   Others have made decisions or have had life events that have greatly shifted their lives in other ways since the Eclipse Season.   Many people are now  unsure about many parts of their lives, whether it be relationships or work or health or where to live.  I have been witnessing more change over the last few months than I have seen in a long time.

Even those who have not yet experienced great change in their personal lives, they are still feeling the strength of the winds of change and are preparing for transformed lives to come soon.

Make no mistake about it, transformation is powerful now and will remain so for quite some time.  Old patterns and ways that have become stale or toxic are ripe to be released, and each time there is a powerful planetary time period, the winds come and take more of these old patterns away.

This leaves many in a sort of limbo, waiting for the new to be born to replace that which is leaving.  Others have found new relationships or jobs or homes or attitudes already, but they are walking with baby steps into the new, with unsure legs into these new zones of life reality.

All of these changes are aligned with bigger revolutionary and evolutionary shifts in our Universe and Earth human reality.  Especially the Uranus/Pluto square is pushing us faster forward into global and personal transformation in alignment with our collective movement into an Aquarian Age.

There was the first pass of this aspect on June 24, and there will be 6 more passes leading us into 2016.  Then over four years later Jupiter will conjunct Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius in December of 2020, which symbolically promises us a huge passage into the Aquarian Age.

The last time Jupiter was conjunct Saturn was in May 2000, just before George Bush was elected President. That conjunction was square Uranus in Aquarius, giving a 20 year signature for old forces digging in to keep the status quo (Jupiter conjunct Saturn in Taurus) versus transformational change into an Aquarian Age (Uranus in Aquarius).

So the 20 years- 2000-2020, which gives us the usual 20 year cycle of Jupiter/Saturn, has been bringing us the see-saw years of pulls back into status quo old patterns, and conversely great waves of change into Aquarian Age consciousness.

Each of us is learning to release the old patterns while embracing the new ways that are aligned with Aquarian Age consciousness.

Of course this plays out in a big way in our greater world.  Power and control for privileges and superiority still has much influence over the ways of the old world and paradigm. Dog eat dog competition runs so much of our economy and military domination in the world.

Yet at the same time so many of us are connecting to soul consciousness that brings us into ways of equality and unity and respect for one another and our sacred Earth.  We want to be liberated from controls over our hearts, souls and minds by the established societal systems.  We want to honor our individualized and authentic selves and make relationship with others all over the world in order to bring health and harmony to a soul suffering human family.

We want to live in consciousness that knows the spirit of the Universe and the higher meaning it radiates through its signs, symbols and synchronicities, showing us we are always safe in its bosom of love and truth.

So now as you get used to navigating your new world, seeking clarity, perspective, and direction; trust that what you need and when you need it, the Universe will be there for you. Maybe not the way you always planned or willed, but just what is right for your soul and what you need.

Our life on Earth is not just about a material search for security and pleasure. It is also about deeper issues, and higher concerns.  Our deeper souls are what drive our life vehicles, not our egoic desires.  So if you learn to surrender more, while still feeling empowered and centered in true self, you will be guided.

Now this week we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle begun at the Gemini New Moon on June 19.  Going past the Full Moon in Capricorn this last week has brought us to the downside of the lunar cycle. It is time to wind down, to go more yin-ward and not so boldly forward.  The next New Moon, in Cancer, will not be until July 18/19.

Adding a curve ball of shifting mental energies and perceptions this coming week is Mercury going retrograde next Saturday June 14 at 10:16 PM EDT. It stays retrograde until August 7/8.   The previous day before Mercury goes Retrograde, on Friday the 13th,  liberating and change-evoking Uranus goes retrograde also.

Also around that time and lasting into the next week, Mars in Libra will be making aspect to the Uranus/Pluto square, creating a cosmic T-Square, a strong astrological configuration. This touches off the Uranus/Pluto square and shakes things up some more. In the greater world keep watching the Middle East, Global Economy, and American Presidential election process where the big changes will be soon erupting.

So beginning late this coming week, energies will be shifting again.  Be alert for this potential turn of events.  What you have been developing and getting used to could be challenged.   It is best to stay on course, unless the messages or events overpoweringly push you otherwise.

At  the very least allow your perceptions to shift.  Do not let your mental paradigm to be too crystallized now.  Be open to new information that changes your opinion or shifts your viewpoint or perspective. Mercury retrograde is not to be looked at superstitiously.  It comes into our life 3 times a year and brings with it a meaningful shift in perception.

It is true that sometimes that means going into a Twilight Zone of consciousness or putting up with glitches in machinery or communication devices or thinking, but not always.  During the retrograde period it is best to go into more reflective thinking and more right brain creativity.  Decisions do  need more time to make sure they are correct;  yet some may even choose to put off those big decisions or delay signing contacts till Mercury goes back direct.

Uranus going retrograde on Friday the 13th seems meaningful, and could go along with the aforementioned shifting of thinking and a turning point of events.

Friday the 13th is an interesting human date, one that many superstitiously associate with scary or bad events coming into one’s life. I am convinced that a fear of the Feminine is at play in the fear of Friday the 13th.

13 is a sacred feminine number associated with the 13 lunar cycles in a year, as opposed to 12 solar cycles of the year.  Friday in many cultures is Venus Day. It is Venerdi in Italian, or Venus Day. It is Freya/Frida day in other cultures or Friday, Freya being another name for Venus, Frida being a Wiccan lady.

So 13 and Venus are both related with Feminine, archetypal Feminine, not cultural feminine, which often tries to make females “sugar and spice and everything nice”.  The fear is more of the power of the Feminine, which has brought great fear to Patriarchal paradigms, who have burned and killed “witches”.

So late this week and into next week, there should be a shifting in line with what has been changing since the powerful Eclipse Season that has just passed. Keep your self centered and aligned and on track.   All is happening meaningfully.

See you next week as Mercury goes Retrograde.
