Energy Shift this coming week as there is a Full Moon in Libra on Friday the 19th. It makes two Full Moons in Libra, back to back. The last one was on Spring Equinox on March 20.

On the next day after the Full Moon in Libra this coming Friday, the Sun goes into Taurus on Saturday.

So both Libra and Taurus are said to be “ruled” by Goddess Venus, also known as Aphrodite.  Venus is the female counterpart to the male Mars.  And Mars (ruler of Aries) has been around perhaps too much lately.

Venus is heart and relationship oriented,  seeking peace and harmony. She is socially conscious, and tends to care (sometimes too much) about what others think of her.

She wants to be beautiful herself, but also is drawn to beauty as an artistic person. She can be very idealistic, and always looks for what is fair and balanced. One of her two ruled signs, Libra, is about the scales of Justice.

And Taurus, her other sign, also is about beauty and receptivity, but also about being sensuous and attuned to the physical, including Nature. She also is drawn to physical resources like land and money.

So you can be more in touch with your body now, especially so the pleasures of your body.

One of the weaknesses of Venus is also its strength.  She is so relationship oriented, and understands so much about relating; but as such she often loses herself as she so accommodates others before herself.

The Full Moon in Libra is on Friday the 19th at 7:12 AM EDT.  This Full Moon consists of the Sun in Aries exactly opposite the Moon in Libra. Being true to Self and its need for independence and personal empowerment (Aries) seeks to be balanced now by needs to relate, to be with others, to socialize, to love (Libra).

Aries likes challenge, competition and sometimes conflict. Libra likes being with others, being peaceful, and balanced.

Netanyahu just won another election to stay Prime Minister of Israel.  He was born with the Sun and Moon in Libra at a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Libra.

And his buddy Trump was born at a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Gemini/Sagittarius.

These two make bullies look good in comparison to them. And each of them has tendencies to want to be dictator and emperor.

Nationalism is a growing movement in the world now, and anti immigrant is part of that movement. It is a desire of these nationalists to go back to some kind of purity in how it used to be in their country.

In many of their minds, there is a sense that these aliens are inferior to them. They often want to go back to when all the citizens were of the same nationality, race, and religion as one another.

Just prior to World War II, the same sentiment was growing.  Italy, Spain, and Germany were all getting more and more nationalistic. That nationalism became fascism.

Don’t get me wrong. There are needs to have strong borders and to have rules for becoming citizens.  But some of this does smell of  fascism.

The power of globalism is growing at the same time.  This will all reach a climax in 2019-2021 with so many powerful eclipses and planetary configurations during that time period.

Globalism unites, nationalism separates.   In a healthy world this potentially translates into Diversity Within Unity,  a large part of the Age of Aquarius paradigm.

We do need distinct individualism to come together into Unity.

But right now nationalism often equates with fear and hatred of those differences. Potentially there may come a domination and control of the masses to keep order.

And globalism often equates with no boundaries and increasing chaos.

Look at the border now between Mexico and the United States.  People are desperately wanting to come into the USA and could be bringing much desperation and chaos with them.

And the Authorities may go over the top with forceful and violent control methods.

Hitler took advantage of the fears of his people, sold them on German purity, and violently dominated and murdered millions who were different. He found a strong ally in Italy’s Mussolini.

Netanyahu uses similar methods of fear mongering about Palestinian terror, and Israel is in the process of taking over more and more lands of the Palestinians. Netanyahu is building an Apartheid world as it was in South Africa.  It will get much worse as Trump has become such a strong ally of his.

We need to stay awake, and make sure we do not get complacent and too attached to our creature comfort needs.

The next few Eclipse Seasons leading up to the next election in November 2020 and the Aquarian Age conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius in December 2020, will be powerful and life changing. Please watch new video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-erQxW7fG8&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR1nW2WVmFWvfi8w_ZG1ysfFmP9C1bPO_fJy5k4G8XgSTnykt6QM4s2NVt4.  listen to podcast:   https://directory.libsyn.com/episode/index/id/9293840

The world is not ending. The result of all these shake-ups is evolution of consciousness, letting in more truth and love,  spiritual growth, a stronger knowing that all the dots of the world and Universe are connected, and an Age of Aquarius.

But at the same time as all this happens, we each need to be in our personal power, looking for the truth, which is not always pretty.

Love without truth is not real.   Truth without Love is cold and cynical.

Together they can do anything, can move mountains, and make magic.  They are the holiest of relationships.

The two planets most resonant with relating and communicating move out of Pisces and into Aries this week. Mercury, master communicator, goes into Aries on Wednesday the 17th. Venus, master of relating, goes into Aries next Saturday the 20th.

Aries is straight-forward and direct, going right for the jugular of Truth. Mars rules Aries.

And with Venus so strong too this week, with a Libra Full Moon and the Sun going into Taurus; we are being given the opportunity this week to do a better job of bringing Truth and Love together.

Till next week

Leo

Better Angels and Astrology Forecast March 17-23.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on March 16, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week Mercury Retrograde continues its trickster journey in foggy Pisces, making it difficult to know anything for sure.  Mercury will stay Retrograde until March 28.

And around the time Mercury gets back to speed, we experience the focused force of a New Moon in Aries on April 5. Till then we lay back and do more inner exploration and processing.

There is not now much clear and focused planetary energy for us to use for decisions, direction, or positive action now. It is not time yet.

Nevertheless, this week we will experience an energy shift mid week, as the Spring Equinox combines with a Full Moon in Aries/Libra on Wednesday March 20.

Spring Equinox, as always, brings the Sun into Aries.  What is different this year, however, is the fact that the Moon moves into Libra- exactly opposite that Spring Equinox Sun in Aries a mere few hours later.

Spring Equinox is at 5:58 PM EDT on March 20.  The Full Moon, with Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra, is at 9:43 PM EDT that day.

We are beginning to open up to energies of forward movement, but important movement forward is not in the cards yet.  Mercury Retrograde is still sorting things out in our minds, helping us to process feelings and thoughts that may be keeping us stuck.

This Full Moon is about working out any dilemmas we may hold around balancing our needs for independence and being true to Self on the one hand (Aries), with being sensitive to relationship and listening to others on the other hand.(Libra).

Aries fights for what it believes in, Libra seeks peace at all costs.  Aries is forceful and often competitive, Libra is socially correct and a mediator between opposing voices or opinions. Aries is governed by Mars, Libra by Venus.  Which side have you been leaning toward lately? Might be time to find a new balance between these two opposites.

After this Full Moon, we enter the waning half of the lunar cycle, directing us to coast “downhill” before the strong forward movement of the New Moon in Aries on April 5.

Many people I talked with this last week were going through rather “on the edge” situations in their lives.  Self destructive thoughts, near relationship breakups,  and fears of old patterns coming back were some of those edgy situations.

Sometimes it takes these “on the edge” challenges to push us over the edge into true change and transformation.

Speaking of “on the edge”, this last week our world experienced another mass murder, this time at a mosque in New Zealand where 49 people were massacred by a white supremacist.

These massacres are happening more and more often, and show us there is much that needs healing in our world.

The world is split between nationalists and globalists, with little apparent link between them.  Nationalists want to “clean out” all peoples who migrated into their country from other countries and cultures.

Globalists want to join all peoples together, even within a country.  Immigrants then join with more “pure” members of the country.

So, for instance, in France many nationalists want only purely French people in the country, not those who have immigrated to France from other cultures, largely Muslim dominated cultures.

They want to make France great again. MAGA would be changed to MFGA.  And many other western countries are going through similar challenges.

In Britain, the people voted in a referendum to leave the European Union (Brexit). They want to return to Britain as it used to be: Nationalism.  Obviously, those who want to stay in the Union are more globalist.

But do you see here the stew of Diversity within Unity boiling over chaotically? Choice here has been between old unity of old country versus more diversity that is unregulated in the country.

But the immigrants will not ultimately be thrown out, so the Diversity will stay. And Unity of France or England or USA with all that diversity is the only possible solution.

In the USA minorities and women are getting stronger and stronger. In not too many years minorities will be the majority. And there is no stopping the empowerment of women anymore.

If you are a progressive or globalist or even socialist, there is no stopping the world becoming more how you envision it.

The only question is how ugly, how violent, how hateful, how destructive will our world get in its process to becoming the Diversity Within Unity world it is meant to be.

And can we destroy our world and not get to the promised land? And can we destroy our air, oceans, etc. on the way to this Age of Aquarius?

This is why it is so important now to let hatred leave our hearts, to let love in.

Yes we each need to stand our ground and fight for the world we believe in!! Can we do it without hatred?

Can we do it with little or no violence? Can we make this revolution work without triggering anyone to use weapons of mass destruction?

Can civil disobedience be our path into this New Age?

So let’s quit making everything about Donald Trump? He is a pawn in the grand scheme. He is playing his role in the world drama. As Shakespeare wrote in As You Like It, “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players”.

Trump is there to show us how off track our country has become: worshipping wealth and fame above all else, letting the higher values of the Constitution and Bill of Rights become lesser values in our world.

Whether he is impeached or not is not the question.  To Be or Not to Be our best selves, aligned with our better angels is the question.

And now each of us must find our better angels inside ourselves.  And that will bring us our better world.  We each must be the world we believe in.

Yes we are about to experience the Shit Hitting the proverbial Fan.  But in that place on the edge is where we find our breakthroughs and awakenings into the Age of Aquarius, into a world governed by Love and Truth.

Sure that may seem far away as we look at the greater world now. But can you remember when you were on the edge emotionally when you lost that loved one, or were abandoned in a relationship? Can you remember that job you lost that meant so much to you, as you worried if you could pay your bills?

We have all had to go to the edge in order to wake up to something; or to be humbled; or to see everything in a new light; or to let go of what was blocking our way; or to become more empathetic or compassionate,; or to transform a belief or old toxic pattern; or to break through old programming; or to liberate ourselves from a stuck place, etc.

And now our world has come to the end of an Old Chapter that is not serving our spirits and souls anymore; that is holding back our natural evolution; that is blocking our path to better relationships; that is keeping us in a paradigm of dog-eat-dog separation; materialism;  lack of meaning and sacredness; without enough love or truth, etc.

These next few weeks may have us continue facing our shadows or inner demons, as we wait for the grand openings after April 5.

You are getting ready for new direction and new movement forward soon.

For now hang back and do not make big decisions or start major projects or impulsively leap into anything for escape.

Till next week,

Leo

The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth and Astrology Forecast April 1-7

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 31, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move into the waning half of the lunar cycle that began on March 17 at the Pisces New Moon.

The Full Moon in Libra earlier today March 31 brings us into the slow dimming of the light of the Moon.

At the same time we are in the middle of Mercury Retrograde, a time to reflect on our lives,  and to rewind into what has happened previously in our lives.

Coupled with the waning half of the lunar cycle it is obviously a time to go inward, to process, and to prepare for action forward after April 15 when there is an Aries New Moon and Mercury going back direct.

This coming week we also have the stop signs of Sun square Saturn and Mercury square Saturn.  The Sun and Mercury are in Aries and Saturn is in Capricorn.

The Sun and Mercury in Aries signify desires to think ahead, to act, to make new beginnings.

Saturn in Capricorn, a sign that makes Saturn stronger, tells us to wait before acting, to stay put so we can do what we need to do, decide what we need to decide.

There is no running away from the hand of time Saturn, who tells us when it is time for something to be done or decided.

Saturn is also gravity which pulls us down into what we cannot escape.

So the Aries planets are in a rush, while Saturn tells us to be patient till it is Time to go forward.

So now with Saturn strong, Mercury Retrograde, and in the waning half of the lunar cycle; we are waiting until the gate opens on April 15.

In most cases it will not be time to rush through the gate, but instead to  just be aware that you are no longer restricted.

Then as Mercury gets back to speed, (a week to 10 days later), and the energies are ready to be put into forward motion (maybe not till May or June), we move forward in a quite strong fashion.

World events will begin to move though the gate, but will not pour in until May or June or even in the summer during another Eclipse Season.

But there will be a sense that nothing can hold you back, and nothing can be held back. There is a “grand opening” and a new day has dawned.

But still this week and next we are wanting to get more clear in our thinking so we can make sound decisions.  We are preparing for what comes next, we are doing what we need to do, we are facing up to what we need to face up to.

It will feel like there is little room to move within, and not much chance to evade, avoid, and escape.

It is almost time now.  Be patient a while longer.  Don’t push the river to flow faster.

In the greater world, we are on the cusp of great change.  Everything is  being set up now for what is coming soon.

And our individual lives are a microcosm for what is happening in the world macrocosm.

We are in the process of getting more clear, of choosing direction, of knowing what we want and need.

With the Aries influence now it may be quite difficult for some to not want to push through the gate and get going.

That would likely be a big mistake. Even if you feel you have gotten more clear of what needs to be done, or what direction you need to take, wait to act on in till after the New Moon in Aries on April 15.

And that New Moon in Aries will be conjunct liberator and awakener Uranus.  You may feel blocked or stuck now, but soon you will taken outside whatever box you may feel you are locked inside of.

And in the greater world, right before the New Moon in Aries and Mercury Direct on April 15, on April 14 Jupiter is sextile Pluto forming a Yod or “Finger of God” configuration with the USA natal Mars.

This means there are turning points in military and police affairs.  Look at the turmoil and violence already erupting in Gaza of the Palestinian territories.  And in mid May the USA moves its embassy to Jerusalem, further incensing Arabs and Muslims:turning point.

And the summit between North Korea and the USA is scheduled for May also: turning point

And in domestic affairs, gun debates (very Mars) after the Parkland Florida mass murder keep getting stronger.  It is time to deal with this issue in a way that will help solve the problem.

And in Sacramento the police are being fingered by many as perpetrators killing an unarmed African American again.  This issue is coming to a head now in the USA.

And of course the revelations of sexual abuse of power are still very important.

These are all quite arguably USA Mars issues that are all ripe for dramatic change.

So the “Finger of God” aspect encompassing the USA natal Mars is bringing important turning points for all these issues.  The USA is at a crossroads with military/police/power/gun issues.

Will we turn toward more peaceful and sane ways, and listen to the voices we have previously silenced, or will we choose to get even more dominating and bullying?

These are truly the times we have been waiting for, times to speak up and create change no matter how difficult it may seem.

The Age of Aquarius is on our doorstep and is waiting for us to help transform this world.

It is our world, not a world to be dominated by power abusers, the greedy, and the privileged.

We can change this world if we turn to love not fear, if we turn to truth not lies. Things change from the inside out.

Christ is said to have stated that “the meek shall inherit the Earth”. I believe that means that those who are humble and peaceful and kind are the hope for this Earth and world.

Till next week,

Leo

The Fool and Astrology Forecast March 25-31

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 24, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Remember Y2K?  Remember the Mayan Calendar date in December 2012?  And there were many other times that it was predicted we were moving into some transition into End Times or a New World?

Look around you now.  Can you not sense that the true time of transition is Now?

Today as I write there are many people all over the USA and world who are standing up and declaring it is  time now to make tighter gun laws that will make our lives saner and safer.  March for Our Lives will change how we operate in our world, as is also true for the Me Too movement.

And it has taken horrible incidents to wake us up to the need for these changes.

So look around you now, out at the world.  The Stock Market is tanking as we predicted.  This is only the beginning, as we are in the process of transforming the economic system that has been running our world. The new system will be more equitable and will lessen the disparity between grotesquely wealthy and tragically poor. The values that Bernie Sanders represents are needed to assist this economic transformation.

And the other half of the Military/Economic Complex that President Eisenhower warned us about (the military), is also on the verge of huge shakeups.

Trump has brought in hawkish men into his administration, men who will be in important positions in regard to foreign affairs. Pompeo is now Secretary of State, and Bolton is now the National Security Counsel leader.

They will greatly influence the North Korea, Iran, Russia, China, and Syria situations.  You can expect wars unless something miraculous happens. A Trump drastic change of heart and mind; the end of the Trump presidency; or extraterrestrial intervention would qualify for such miracles.

If these wars do erupt, they will make us feel more deeply the horrible dangers we have put ourselves in.  And like Me Too and March for Our Lives we will be standing up in protest all over the world against the abuse of power that nuclear weapons are reflective of.

As a result, power in the world will move toward being more evenly spread; and nuclear weapons will  need to be wiped off the face of this world.

Yes now is the time we have been waiting for, and we are the ones we have been waiting for!

We need to stand up like these young people from Parkland Florida have been standing up! Civil Disobedience is the way forward into the Age of Aquarius.

And after April 15, events will begin to pour through the opened Portal, as at the same time more light and love will be pouring through.

That also means we will be even more pushed to work with our blocks, our old patterns, our traumas, our belief systems, our tired old ego stories, our identification with being   victims, and of course all the programming from the culture that has sought to make us all sheep.

As we clear these blockages, we clear the way for the Great Awakening, for the Truth and Love that are the foundation for our new world.

This week we are just recently moved into Mercury Retrograde.  It is a time to process more deeply, to fix what needs to be fixed and heal what needs to be healed. It is time to  reflect on the past so we can put it behind us.

People from our past may come to us in dreams, vivid memories or even in person.  This comes to us so we can put the past into perspective, learn what needs to be learned so we can lessen the load of our baggage moving forward.

We are clearly in a New Chapter of life, collectively and personally.  And the portal opening after April 15 will accelerate our transition through this New Chapter.

The “old normal” wants to be released, and you may not find a “new normal” for awhile.

So now can feel rather insecure at times, as what we considered normal is being left behind. But this also means that creative energies are more alive than usual, which is good for new ideas and creating new ways to be.

Besides Mercury being Retrograde this week, we also are moved into the second quarter of the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the Pisces New Moon on March 17. Plus 4 planets are in action oriented, take charge Aries.

So while energies are intensifying and sometimes feel like they are pushing us forward, remember we are at the same time put on “Pause” with Mercury Retrograde.

Do not be impulsive now.  Let this time period play out. Look before you jump.  The Fool Card need not be played now,  though a week from Sunday is April Fool’s Day on Easter Sunday.

Keep in mind that Mercury is a trickster, especially when in Retrograde.  So be alert to your mind playing tricks on you now.

The day before April Fool’s Day is a Full Moon in Libra on Saturday March 31 at 8:37 AM EDT.

That means the Sun is in Aries directly opposite the Full Moon in Libra.

Me first or us together; conflict or peace; action or deliberation, letting it all out or being conscious of social norms are potential themes for this Full Moon.

And remember that a Full Moon and Mercury Retrograde together can make things rather foggy and unclear.

Do not make any important decisions or drastically change directions from what you had previously chosen.

And during Mercury Retrograde we often question what we are doing, where we are going, or what have previously decided.  Wait for a week or more after Mercury goes back Direct before making the decision or changing directions.

And sometimes electronics can go haywire and communication can be confused.  Pay closer attention than usual to what has been written and what has been said.

Be very careful not jumping to conclusions with texts. Make sure the other person understands what you meant in your texting.

Start getting clear about the values and priorities that are important to you as we move into this New Chapter of our lives.  Those values are the foundation of your new world.

There is nothing to be afraid of now if you believe Love, Truth, and higher meaning are the pillars of this New World. Your view on life will then usually be of a glass half full.

If you instead see all as meaningless, random, and fear filled, then the glass of your life will end up looking half empty.

Sure things are looking scary sometimes out in the world, but know the movement overall is about death of the old world and birth of a new one, the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Open Portals of Change, and Astrology Forecast April 9-15.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 8, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have arrived into the New Chapter.   We let you know a few weeks ago that the Aries New Moon on March 27 was the window out into this new chapter, and that big world events would soon follow.

So this last week America bombed Syria, and as usual found a “good” reason to do so: chemical weapons used on innocent Syrian people.  Yet the week before this atrocity, the USA dropped bombs in Iraq that killed many innocent people too. Now that has been effectively put aside in most minds through media silence.

Throughout history, perpetrators most always have found a “good reason” to kill or otherwise harm people.

Hitler believed he was creating a superior race that would bring progress to the world.

Bush II believed that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction- which did not exist.

Trust me on this-  Killing people in other parts of the world, when one is not really having to defend their country from attackers, has more ulterior motives behind it.

This bombing was a power play intended to show the world, most especially North Korea, Iran, Russia, and China, that the USA is back as the baddest guy in the neighborhood (“Make America Great Again”). It also takes people away from believing Trump and Putin are in a bromance.

Regardless of the reasons, this is the event that takes us into this new chapter, as it will be the event that begins to unhinge Pandora’s lid to its box.

Many events that will shake up the world in many ways will result from this event.

As old age and horrible as this bombing is, now is also a time of opening up the portals to higher consciousness and new ways.

We are waking up now out of our “comfort” zones, seeing more clearly, and getting activated to get moving and get doing.

If you focus on what is opening up for you and us collectively, and not on the world dramas, you will be OK.

Fear, hatreds, and most importantly programmed ways to think and feel, will hold you back and keep you stuck in old ways and old patterns.

There are two ways to go in this new chapter now.  You can get all wrapped up in the world dramas, taking sides, getting into winner versus loser consciousness; or you let the new energies and frequencies take you further into Love and Truth consciousness, and the ways of the Age of Aquarius.

There is a trust and faith necessary to do that:  trust and faith in the Universe, your better self, and your fellow soul traveller.

I know some of you will want to get involved in that old world for perhaps idealistic and altruistic reasons of your own.

Please do not do so if you are prone to losing your detachment, getting overly emotionally involved, feeling much fear or hatred, or getting taken off your new world path and/or your spiritual path.

It is important now to keep the focus on what is truly important.  Continuing our journey of transformation out of old consciousness and old ways, and creating and embracing new consciousness and new ways, is very important now.

Opening your mind and heart to the new light wanting to stream in is an important part of the journey now.

Love and Truth are what are wanting to flower in each of us.  The old energies, patterns, programs, beliefs, paradigms are ready to be released- one step at a time.

As we clear those blocks, there is more room in our inner channels and portals for the new energies to move through.

All we have been taught by society is open for questioning now.  Where we came from and where we are going is open for discussion.

We once believed the world was flat and then believed it was round.  And that level of new discovery is ready for us again.  And many of these new vistas sit inside us as new frequencies, new energetics, new soul pathways.

This week April 8-15, we encounter some major shifts: Mercury Retrograde, Venus Direct, and Full Moon in Libra.

Mercury goes Retrograde on Sunday April 9 at 7:14 PM EDT.  Venus will still be Retrgrade then.  

So from April 9- April 15 both planets will be retrograde.  On April 15 Venus goes direct, at which time only Mercury will be retrograde- until May 3 when it goes back direct again.

So this week ahead may get really unclear at times, especially around relating and relationships, and linear thinking.

You may tend to go back and forth on issues, or want to jump to conclusions too fast.

Do your best to wait and let issues brew longer if possible.  After April 15, when Venus goes Direct, relationship issues and security/home issues will begin to clear up.

But with Mercury still Retrograde, not all issues in all ways will be clear yet.  Be patient and trusting of the process.  Linear bottom line thinking is not as useful during Mercury Retrograde.

And as Venus Retrograde brought a rewind and reflection on relationships and people from the past, Mercury Retrograde also can create dreams, thoughts and in the flesh people coming back from the past.

So you can see the potential pattern:  Moving forward into new worlds and consciousness, while also reflecting on the past.

What from your past and present needs to be released?   What can you take with you on your soul’s journey going forward now?  Let the process unfold to show you the way.

Please do not overthink or try to figure it all out in your head during the retrograde time period.  Be satisfied with processing and going deeper for more insights.

That will help you to know what is best, not just in your head, but also in your heart and soul.

To further shift the energies and view this week, there is a Full Moon in Aries/Libra on April 10/11 at 2:08 AM EDT on the 11th.

Uranus in Aries will be strong in this Full Moon, so there may be some important awakenings that occur this week, shifting us outside of old boxes that have kept us locked up in self defeating thoughts and beliefs. Pluto in Capricorn will also be strong in this Full Moon.  So powerful transformational events and emotions may also erupt this week.

With the Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra in this Full Moon, we are trying to balance being true to ourselves and what we believe in on the one hand; while on the other hand truly listening and caring what is important to someone else.

Finding one’s personal empowerment and independence within a relationship is also a potential issue to be addressed this week.

We are filling up our cups of life now with more energy and action. The greater world is also getting more activated with events and movements.

We are ready for this now.

I will be doing a video conversation with David Lonebear Sanipass on the 15th at 2:43 PM, which David says is a time of cosmic importance. And of course also on the 15th Venus goes Direct.  David and I will be discussing the big shifts in the world and in our personal lives at this powerful time to be alive.  We will make that video available to others soon after.

till next week,

Leo

Fireball Alert and Astrology Forecast March 24-30

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 23, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Some fireball flashed in the sky across most of the East Coast USA on Friday, seen from New England to Florida.  This was the same day forceful god of war Mars was conjunct “awakener” Uranus in fiery Aries This ball of fire was seen as big as a Full Moon, and most believe it was a meteor.  But no one knows for sure.  

We have made the case on previous entries of Perspectives from the Sky that what happens on the East Coast USA, where the Sun comes up for the country, coinciding with an important planetary event, symbolizes something powerful is coming  for the USA as a whole.

Last year at the Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus, which opened up the Autumn Eclipse Season, Hurricane Sandy destroyed much of the East Coast around New York and New Jersey, and ultimately had a huge influence on the USA Presidential Election.  Prior to that storm Governor Romney was ostensibly leading President Obama.  After that storm, Governor Christie of New Jersey was quite happy with President Obama’s help for New Jersey, and showed it in a big way. President Obama won reelection and many pundits believe that the storm was the turning point.

6 weeks later, after two powerful Eclipses, there was a New Moon in Sagittarius that finished up the Autumn Eclipse Season. Then at Sandy Hook School in Newtown Connecticut, there was a most horrible massacre of children.  For some strange reason the name Sandy was prominent at each tragedy.  This school massacre showed us potential results of the American culture of violence, and brought on the mission to limit guns in our American society.

Now, about a month before the first of 3 eclipses of Eclipse Spring Season 2013, an omen has flashed across the Easter skies of the USA.   This spring, along with the powerful eclipses, both Mars and Jupiter will make conjunction with the natal USA Mars, a significator of conflict, police, military, violence, and sometimes war.

With the Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries aspect at the same time as the fireball in the sky, this could be a sign that this spring will bring powerful events to our country, with the strong possibility of new conflict involving the USA.

Syria, North Korea, and Iran are hotspots now, and the empire may be looking to put a forceful stop to any threats to its dominance in the world.  These countries have been demonized by government and media to the American public.  This sets us up for rabid patriotism.  Like Iraq and Viet Nam, we can be herded like sheep off to war again.

If a major conflict does not happen this spring, events will nevertheless likely show us it is coming very soon.

Hopefully whatever happens will begin to wake people up all over the world.  It is time we stop unjust wars that can destroy so much of humanity, especially as our human family possesses so many nuclear weapons. It is time we make peace and love the pillars that hold our world and humanity.

It is time we develop institutions, and economic systems that do not reward the greedy, corrupt, or aggressive; but instead are conducive for fairness, equality,  truth, compassion, and love.   These are not Pollyanna dreams, as the cynical leaders of the world will make you believe.

These are values of the Greater Universe, a Universe that is sacredly meaningful and provides what is needed when it is needed to everyone so aligned and connected.

We as a human family have generally left alignment with that Universe, and then blame it (God) for our horrors.   We have been given the ability to create and choose, and what happens to us is the result of what we have sown.  This is karma.

Now, as we are in transition between ages, as old ways are falling apart and breaking down, new light is wanting to shine for breakthroughs into new ways.

We are moving into a time of renewed creativity, new choices.  There is indeed an Aquarian Age bursting open, but we are the chefs of its manifestation, we are the ones we are waiting for to create this world anew.

The Spring Eclipse Season will open around the New Moon in Aries on April 10, but the fireball of Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries is the herald of this Season. It has alerted us to the fires of new powerful energies on the way.

In your personal life, do not get too complacent or comfortable.  Same-old, same-old will not hold for long.  It does not have to be something huge to change your life this Eclipse Season, but at least it is time to let go of old attitudes and beliefs that keep you chained to the conditioning of the Old Age.  Its fears and its skepticism of our  living in a meaningful and sacred world should not infect your mind, heart and soul anymore.

Open more fully to knowing that we live in a world where all is connected, not separate. There is a wholeness that encompasses dark and light, male and female, yin and yang. We are one naturally, and only our attitudes are what separate us one from another. Yes, we are different, individualized and diverse, but held in the embrace of a unified Universe.

This week March 24-30 brings a Full Moon in Aries/Libra on Wednesday March 27.  Attached to this Full Moon are Pluto, Uranus, Venus, Jupiter, and Mars, which make aspect to one another on March 26-28.

So this Full Moon, though not as powerful as an eclipse, will be important and shake things up a bit.  It may take you off your normal balance and pull you in different directions.  Knowing what to do, or what to decide may be difficult, yet the process you go through will help you to see outside the box with greater insight and perspective.

The Full Moon is at 5:27 AM EDT.    Some themes will be “conflict or peace”; thinking of myself or others; listening or defending my self; impulsiveness or thinking things through.

After this Full Moon, we will be in the waning Moon phase, waiting for new activity at the New Moon in Aries, a lunation that will give a spark into the Spring Eclipse Season.

See you next week,

I have created an Astrology Forecast 2013 for youtube, part 1. And Part 2. I will put out a new youtube Spring Eclipse Season forecast in late March or early April.

Calm Before the Storm and Astrology Forecast April 17-23

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on April 16, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now in a lull of calm before the storms of the eclipse season.   Dust has been settling from recent changes and intense transformational shifts.    Nature has begun to come alive, but it almost seems to be holding back before it bursts forth in all its beauty, as it is almost ready to put on its yearly show of full blossoming and abundance.   

We each have also burst forth, but not in full bloom yet.  Many planets have been and are still in Aries, pushing us, like buds through the trees, into situations that require us to stand up and empower ourselves in all new ways.   This is, for some,  a newfound  or renewed sense of empowerment.  It is preparation for what is to come.

Mercury is in the last week of its retrograde phase, so we are in pause so we can reflect on our lives and on our past, understanding what we need to know, and integrating  more of us before we move on.

After Mercury goes direct next SaturdayApril 23, our minds begin to get more clear, direction is more apparent.   We will be mentally more ready for the shifting tides of late spring and summer.    The Taurus New Moon on May 2 begins the lunar cycle that is the one prior to the first eclipse on June 1.  That eclipse on June 1 will be the next new moon, but a much more powerful new moon, as it is a Solar Eclipse New Moon.  

Exactly when we begin to experience the winds of this eclipse season, I am not totally sure.  Usually a couple weeks before that first eclipse, we can definitely feel the shifting wind patterns of our lives blowing in, but sometimes even before that. 

You will know the eclipse season has begun energetically when you feel the intensity of your self and life increase, and you feel taken out of your usual balance.  Events in the world are usually intensifying also then.   It is possible this time that the shakeup and intensity will not truly ensue until close to the onset of that first eclipse on June 1, which is at 11+ degrees of Gemini. This is because the previous lunar cycle is in Taurus, a fixed earth sign that does not emit much energy, and instead holds on and stays put.    If there is much movement already during Taurus time, we can expect a quite powerful eclipse season ahead.

In the greater world, the dust has been settling from the big events of the winter of 2010/2011.  The revolutionary uprisings in the Middle East are still going on, but we now have gotten used to that in our collective consciousness.  The earthquake and tsunami in Japan created the worst nuclear reactor disaster of all time on Earth.  We are now trying to more deeply understand what this all means to our human family and what changes we want to make.   The oil disaster in the gulf of the USA in 2010, along with the nuclear disaster, show us the monsters we have created and need to control.   Wars and other disasters have occurred as a result of our relationships with both oil and nuclear energy.

In order to create the world we desire for an Aquarian Age, we need to cure our addiction to oil and need to harness the power created by nuclear energy.

In a way our relationship to oil represents our lack of control of our greedy nature; and our relationship to nuclear energy represents the lack of control of our needs for power.   We rape the Earth for oil and bring potential toxic energies into her body with oil spills and nuclear waste, leaks, and potential fallout.  We also harm our human family and other creatures with these oil and nuclear disasters.  We invade other countries for oil, we threaten one another with nuclear weapons.   These recent disasters, happening in conjunction with profound astrological aspects, shine a spotlight on these toxic patterns that we need to face up to and transform- on our way through the transition into an Aquarian Age.

As we soon move through the eclipse season of the late spring and summer of 2011, watch the news and world events for more clues of what needs to be transformed in our world to clear the way for the Aquarian Age.

This Week there is Full Moon in Aries/Libra this Sunday April 17 at 10:44 PM EDT.  The main issues to be addressed are personal empowerment balanced with relationship skills. You have been empowering your self with all the planets in Aries, and now it is time to integrate that into your relationships.  How does one stay empowered while being sensitive to the needs of others? Another issue to be examined now is our needs for independence and our desire to be with others. 

The Sun moves into Taurus on Wednesday April 20.  Taurus time is a time to get more into your body and into the physical side of life. It is time to concentrate energies on the home, money, resources and others issues of security and comfort.  It is time to solidify whatever you have started during Aries time of year.

And finally- this week Mercury goes back direct next Saturday April 23. For some that will feel like a relief from mental confusion. Th eairwaves are clearing up and clarity is developing.   If you have been putting off decisions, you may now or soon feel OK to make them.

See you next week,

Leo
