Co-creating Reality and Astrology Forecast November 5-11.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on November 4, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this forecast in November 4,  we are experiencing the Taurus Full Moon.    We have 3 planets in Scorpio now, while the Moon is in Taurus with Venus and Mars in Libra.

So two very opposite energies are inhabiting our collective energy fields now.

Both Taurus and Libra are “ruled” by the planet Venus, and those signs together, yet each in a different way, represent the human needs to make things more comfortable, peaceful, receptive, graceful, and especially in Libra’s case civil.

From a very different part of the energetic spectrum, Scorpio (ruled by Pluto) represents a need to make waves, be intense and passionate, and upset anything not “real” or deeply felt.

Do you let it out or keep it in? Do you make waves or keep things safe and secure? Many are staying on that teeter-totter now, waiting for the call.

We are on the precipice of taking the leap into a vortex of transformation.

Scorpio energy waves so far have opened up previously held secrets, brought out emotions that have been suppressed, and stated truths in unvarnished ways.

But for the most part the Venusian energy waves have kept a lid on Pandora’s box of unbridled passions.

Will we experience the full ignition after the Scorpio New Moon on November 18, or will we need to wait for the next Eclipse Season January-March 2018.

Right now as we move through the Taurus Full Moon, we enter the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Venus ruled Libra New Moon. That second half of the lunar cycle wanes down now until that Scorpio New Moon on the 18th.

So then Pluto, that Scorpio ruler and guardian of the energetic underworld, erupts more fully into our consciousness and world at the Scorpio New Moon.

That which the dam has held back will be more apt to break open and break through.  Pleasantries will not be sufficient to keep passions at bay.

So it is becoming a good time to empower yourself, to be more bold, to speak truth to power, to share what you have kept in bondage inside your self, to reveal your darker feelings, and in the process to heal your deeper traumas and wounds.

Expression of that which has been hidden can be healing.  Working it out with others can be even more healing.

In our global picture, more and more secrets are being revealed of course in the Kennedy files,  in Russia-gate investigations, and of course with sexual abuse of power claims which now includes Kevin Spacey as an abuser.

This process has only just begun as Jupiter will stay in Scorpio for the next year.

Venus joins with Jupiter and the Sun in Scorpio this week, while Mercury leaves Scorpio to enter Sagittarius.

Venus in Scorpio shifts the Libra/Taurus vibe into being more provocative. and stirring up of intensity and passion.

Mercury in Sagittarius will bring more ability to see the bigger picture, to think positive, and to trust spirit. So if you have recently felt buried or trapped in your obsessions or darker feelings, you now will have more ability to rise above and see more light.

If you do positive visualizations or affirmations, you will have more of the Universe at your back now to fulfill those idealizations.

I have worked a lot with meditative visualizations in my life, as I was a director of Silva Mind Control, now the Silva Method, many years ago.

When one uses visualizations in creating one’s reality, sometimes it is challenging to find the right balance in co-creating.

How much does one impose one’s will in the process, and how much does one allow for the movement of the Universe in the process?

Each person is different in this regard. Some believe we totally create our own reality, while others believe it all fated already.  I believe it is a combination and merging of those opposites to make co-creation work.

Yes astrology has taught me that there are “weather patterns” of energy that come into our lives at certain times, yet we each do make decisions and choices that determine our fate also.

Listening to our better or worse angels is one choice, and seeing the glass of life as half empty or half full is another choice  we make.

Yes it is true that we each influence our lives by our belief systems, attitudes, and how we are vibrating energetically; but also certain events and energy patterns come into our lives outside of our individual influence.

And it is how we react to those patterns that influence what our lives will be like after the patterns leave.

And of course the process of transformation and consciousness evolution also determine our reality and future (as well as our past).

When we become more conscious and awake, we stimulate the powers of transformation to bring us beyond what we have been programmed to believe and be.

And in that process we influence and help others and our world.

So do your best to embrace our transformational challenges now.  Our human family has had many times before of challenge, hardship, difficulty, and turmoil.

We need to keep moving forward in our transformational process into the Age of Aquarius.

And yet as we move forward, we need to move back to our better values, to our honoring of the Earth and Universe,  and to Love and Truth which are the foundation of our human experience now and always.

Without them we are lost, afraid, and alone.

Till next week

Beyond the Veil and Astrology Forecast October 29- November 4

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 28, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week Scorpio energies stay strong while we take the waxing ride up to a Full Moon in Taurus on Friday/Saturday October 27/28.

The Scorpionic secrets from the Kennedy files were opened last week, but only partially. This partial opening of those files of course stimulates conspiracy feelings.

It is pretty obvious, in my estimation, that the Powers That Be (whether we consider that as the Deep State or Military/Industrial Complex or New World Order or Illuminati or whatever ), intend to keep control of lives and of the Paradigm that has been programmed into the herd of humanity. People knowing the truth hurts their cause.

However, as the portals to the Age of Aquarius keep opening, breakdowns of the Order will happen more and more often.  As they do, the Order will want to get more and more oppressive and dominating of our lives.

Look at Catalonia.  It is pushing for independence from Spain.  And thus Spain took violent control over Catalonia.

Now the Civil War there has begun.

And here in the USA a culture war revealed itself so much more during the last Eclipse Season.   Those who praised Trump during the Presidential Election process last year, like White Supremicists, were part of an a hateful conflict in Charlottesville during that last Eclipse Season.

It is obvious that this Culture War is dividing the USA in a large way, and it will get much more inflamed next year. And then chaotic change versus dominating Order will become a more intense conflict.

Let me peer just a bit into 2018. Of course I will put out a more comprehensive written forecast, as well as YouTube and audio forecasts in early 2018.

There will be another Eclipse Season in January/February 2018.   Whatever was begun during Eclipse Season in July-September 2017 will break open to a whole new level then.

In the global scene, besides the Charlottesville incident, North Korea and the USA began engaging in a dangerous war of words with one another.  That is now destined to break open into a major conflict.  And the culture war inside the USA will also get more heated, especially so as Trump is now destined to be challenged in a major way next year.

People within the government and outside the government will seek to have him overthrown from the Presidency.

And next year the stock market and economy will also face major downfalls. So you can see how the Order will be threatened in a big way next year, so it will then seek to keep things under strict control to maintain its power.

Much of the turmoil next year will be triggered during the January/February Eclipse season, the highlight being a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.  That Eclipse will be almost exactly conjunct the USA natal Moon in Aquarius, and opposite Trump’s natal Mars and Ascendant in Leo.

Whatever in your life opened up during the July-September time period last year, will be burst more forward in January-March 2018.

Our world is transforming in a major way. It must if we are to enter an Age of Aquarius.

It is not easy to let go of old paradigms or ways of life, even if they are painful, self denying, and have made us unhappy and stuck. The old and familiar give us a sense of security and safety even if they were not either secure of safe.  Many years ago when I quit cigarettes, I felt like I was saying goodbye to an old friend (one that was killing me).

We need to let go of the old and familiar in a very big way now, inside ourselves especially.  We need to each empower ourselves in ways we never have before.  In doing so, we can stand up for ourselves and for what we believe in.

Look at how women are standing up against abuse of power now.  Look how African Americans are standing up (or taking a knee) against oppression now.  Do you also see how this is part of the current culture war?

If this becomes more a war between liberal and conservative viewpoints instead of standing up for what one believes, we move into that culture war which will continue to divide us in an unhealthy way.

Conservatives are not the enemy, liberals are not the enemy.  It is in the essence of the Universe’s natural seasons of life, to let go and release that which is not aligned with where we are evolving. That movement requires no enemies.

And a consciousness of Diversity within Unity is aligned with that Age of Aquarius.  And conservative viewpoints are part of that new age.  But bigotry, hatred, and discrimination are not part of that age; and so conservative viewpoints and white men, for instance, can be very much a part of this new age. If you judge, discriminate, and hate based on a category of people, you have become one of the biased, prejudicial people you have disliked.

Expect a big breakdown of old security systems next year, in the world and in our personal lives.

This week we are moving toward a Full Moon in Taurus, which is at 1:23 AM EDT Saturday November 4.

That means the Sun will be in Scorpio exactly opposite the Moon in Taurus.

Taurus stands for solid, calm unaffected stability.  Scorpio possesses intense passionate emotions.  So these two opposite energy fields clash,  but can make relationship with one another in the best expression of this Full Moon.

You may mainly stand for calm stability, and if so be prepared to let in more intense energies around this Full Moon in Taurus.

Or you may be really intense and passionate yourself around this Full Moon, and if so do not expect everyone to meet you there.  Be prepared for people who might put up a wall to protect themselves from what they experience as too much intensity to handle.

You may feel you need to decide between these two opposite ways of being inside your self: letting out your deepest empowered truth, or instead keeping it inside in a safe way.

Taurus Full Moons can also bring about “tugs of war”, as both signs can be rather stubborn.

But this Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus can also become a very nice mixture of passionate soulful feelings (Scorpio) within a solid physical structure or body (Taurus).

So sex can be very enjoyable with that combination.

Earlier this week, on October 31, it is Halloween in many cultures, which meaningfully coincides with the ancient natural yearly turning point Samhain.

It is half way between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.  Halloween got its inspiration from Samhain as Samhain has been known as the time of year when the veils between worlds is the thinnest.

The world of the dead is more open to be seen.  Connecting with those in your life who died is more possible now, and many say ghosts can be more easily experienced at this time of year. So it is easy to see how Halloween came about.

Till next week

Aftermath, Bigger Picture and Astrology Forecast November 13-19

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 12, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Election in America has moved all of us into a New Era of our lives.   So many people I know are deeply upset by the results of that election.  Some of them are feeling deep despair and cannot believe the Universe has taken such (to them) a wrong turn on our path into a new age or new world.

They feel that the last 8 years of President Obama have opened the doors leading to the new age and they hoped that trajectory would continue with the new president. But in their minds it has not with the election of Donald Trump.

This blog has been attempting over the last several months to get us all ready for the Trump win, which in my mind was meant to be.  “You can’t always get what you want”…..but you get what you need.” But why him?

Let’s go back and look at our past and the astrological movements that have unfolded over recent times.

There are three transformational planets: Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.  They have been relatively recently discovered: 1781, 1846, 1930 respectively.

Their discoveries have coincided with our reaching the cusp of the Age of Aquarius.  They are meant to help each of us and our human collective to transform and evolve our consciousness and lives aligned with this new age.

When any two of those three make an aspect with one another it brings a great wave  of transformation, revolution and evolution.

As an example when Uranus made conjunction with Neptune in 1992-1994 the computer and internet revolution began to sweep through our lives. It is now a daily and integral part of all of our lives.  

When Uranus made conjunction with Pluto in 1965-66, it brought on the ’60s and ’70s revolution which dramatically transformed all of our lives as it woke us up to what needed to change in our lives and world.

Back then people sought to end an unjust war in Viet Nam, bring civil rights to race relations and gender issues. Blacks and women were then oppressed in the chains that society had dominated them with.

A corrupt and insensitive USA government was revealed, there was a sexual revolution, there was a clamor for people to take back the world from leaders who took away their individual freedoms and voices.

Yet in the middle of this revolution Richard Nixon was elected to be president in 1968.    This brought such a devastated emotional response from the people, especially young people, who had been previously inspired to transform our country and world. Nixon represented a most restrictive and conservative blockage to the movement forward.

That election combined with the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy that  same year 1968, brought people to their knees in horror, fear and depression.

Nevertheless the revolution continued and before long the war ended and President Nixon resigned from his presidency in the mid ’70s.  Rights for women and African Americans were solidified at that time also. The world had been transformed.

Fast forward to 2011-2016.  Uranus and Pluto have been square to one another, the first major aspect between them since 1965-66 when they were conjunct.

Gays and Lesbians gained the right to marry during that time period.  Ferguson and other cities in the USA erupted in protest at the killings of black people by the police, bringing renewed awareness to racial issues that needed more justice and clearing.

The Islamic State was largely born out of the devastation from another unjust war in Iraq during that time.

Government and Corporate controls of our lives and freedoms were exposed more fully.  The anti Wall Street movement was then born.

Bernie Sanders then in 2015-16 also began his mission to fight the corporations and societal paradigm that separates the wealthy from the 99% who are not very wealthy on this Earth and in America.

The Arab Spring also brought more awareness of dictator control in the Middle East and North Africa.

And in 2016 the presidential election process brought more awareness to the reality of women’s continued fight to be empowered and even more liberated from old societal chains.

And now we have our Richard Nixon in the form of Donald Trump, our new USA president.

The revolution and its attendent motivation for our evolution will be stoked more than ever.

There is no stopping the train barreling toward the Age of Aquarius. No one person or president can derail our movement forward.  But we do need to bring aboard some of those who have not felt understood, who have lost jobs and lives in recent years. And those people voted for Trump.

And as before the young people are revved up to change this world.  And with the empathy and guidance from their elders we will together move forward into this New Age.

So please get up and take responsibility for how you will contribute to this movement.

This week November 13-19 brings a Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus on Monday November 14 at 8:52 AM EST.

Some are calling it a Supermoon as it will be much closer, larger and brighter than usual. It has not been this big since January 1948. In USA it will be best seen on ight of November 13.

More important is the meaning of the Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon.

Like all Full Moons this one takes us to a sense of completion and resolution.

And as it is being formed by the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus, it shows us we are moving toward balancing our more deeply felt passions and emotions (Scorpio) with our sense of solidly and calm (Taurus).

In regards to the election there may be a tug of war inside you between deeply held emotions and passions on the one hand, and a calm centered acceptance on the other hand.

This Full Moon represents a turning point for our attitudes and should be felt from Saturday through Wednesday this coming week, with the most intensity closer to the exact date.

On Saturday November 19 Neptune will be shifting from Retrograde to Direct.  As it goes stationary and then Direct we experience its energy and meaning.

This coming week we will have the Neptunian energies of empathy, compassion, surrender, and escape getting stronger.

Escape may be seductive as a means to ignore reality now.  Empathy is a good trait now to better understand why some people voted the way they did.   For most people it was not about racism and sexism.

And Neptune helps us to surrender- which can help us to let go to a process bigger than we each are, and it can help us to better trust the Universe and its wisdom.

We are all in this together.

Till next week

Deepening our Experience and Astrology Forecast October 25- 31

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week should bring a deepening into one’s body and soul.  Water and Earth signs are strongly represented this week.  Water and Earth together bring energies “down and in” instead of “up and out”. Together they represent Yin instead of Yang.

There is a Full Moon on Tuesday the 27th at 8:05 AM EDT.  That Full Moon has the Sun in Scorpio and the Moon in Taurus.   Scorpio is water and Taurus is Earth, both Yin signs.

Both are “fixed” signs as Scorpio is fixed water and Taurus is fixed Earth  Water is feelings, emotions, and soul.   Earth is nature, practicality, and the body.

Since Scorpio is fixed water there is a tendency to hold onto feelings and emotions.

Since Taurus is fixed earth, it tends to want to hold onto that which gives it a sense of physical security.

At a Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon, as this one is, there can be “tugs or war” between people who stubbornly hold onto their position or agenda.

Taurus does not like too much emotion or intensity, and Scorpio does not like anyone who lacks emotion or passion.

So there can be a conflict between people who represent each of those positions.

Be careful this week not to let your “buttons” get pushed or to push someone else’s buttons.   If it does happen, then it must be because emotions need to be expressed in order to clear the stale air of suppressed feelings.

All week there will be a pull downward into that which is real.  There is a strong emphasis on the signs Scorpio, Taurus, and Virgo.  That leaves little room this week for escapism or avoidance or over romantacizing.

There is a need to make real now, to go deeper to know the truth.

Finding the truth may take you down into the dark corners of your psyche.  In fact you may also be able to go even deeper than that.

Saturday the 31st brings us into Samhain, an annual energetic passage that our ancestors celebrated.

Modern pop culture calls it Halloween and in religion it is called All Saints Day.

Samhain is approximately half way between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.  It is a time when the veils between worlds are very thin.

As such one can, with meditative effort, get in touch with the spirit world and with those who have passed through death into other dimensions.

Try this through your meditation or through ceremony and ritual or even just staring into fire and making a soul intention to contact spirit.

It is easy to see why, as a result of this easier contact with the spirit world at Samhain,  tha tHalloween was created.   The more easy contact with spirits must have brought some fears of ghosts and monsters to people back in the day.

So use this time of year to let the spirit world into your consciousness. Allow the increasing darkness at this time of year to help you to go deeeper into the soul.

To foster this process we turn our clocks back overnight from October 31 to November 1.   It is time to be more inner directed, with less energy put into striving and set outer directed agendas.

Getting more in touch with mysteries, and with opening up previously closed secrets is in order now.  Also doing more introspection and delving more deeply into one’s unconscious is  in order now.

After the Full Moon on Tuesday the 27th we enter the last and waning half of the lunar cycle.  The light of the Moon will begin to dim, prompting us even more to go deeper.

It may be helpful at this time of year to be able to process your feelings with someone.  That will help you to gain objective perspective.  Do your best to not allow yourself to get into dark dramas inside your self or with others.

There is still alot to process, sort through and make sense of from all the storms of the eclipse season.

After the New Moon in Scorpio on November 11, it will be time to get more fully immersed in the new chapter of your life.

In the greater world, the eclipses took us into a faltering economy and stock market; major upheaval in Jerusalem and elsewhere in Palestine and Israel; Russia beginning to bomb in Syria; and China and the USA daring each other in waters near the South China Sea.

For now most of these issues have settled down in intensity. But the fact that they all erupted during the Eclipses in September strongly suggests that these matters are important ones that will come back to haunt us- excuse the pun.

The transformation of our old world and its institutions will continue.   There will be much more powerful changes on the way. The events during the recent Eclipse Season “set the table” for what is to come.

So it is likely that around and after the New Moon in Scorpio, world events will intensify again, especially those that are connected to the events that erupted in September.

In your own life, you continue to be ripe for awakenings, deeper realizations, and generally big breakthroughs into new lands of consciousness.  We are each evolving, through personal transformation, into more authentic soul beings.  As we transform we become more attuned to the energies and realities of the Age of Aquarius.

These breakthroughs also help us to shed the weight of EGO, the part of each of us that has allegiance to needs to dominate and control reality in service to the laws of separation and chance.   As we trust more, we let go to our soul self, our “higher self”, the part of us  that is connected to the Universe, nature, and that which connects everything and everyone together with meaning.

We give allegiance to the flags of Love and Truth and the birthing of a New World of stewardship of our Earth, its creatures, and our human family.   We can sense more and more the tone and frequency of a world of Diversity and distinct Individuality connected to the Unity of greater Community.

Till next week,

Leo

Endings and Beginnings and Astrology Forecast November 9-15

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 8, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we have spoken many times, this year 2014 has largely been about closing old chapters of our lives and getting ready to embrace new ones.

The Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year gave us the marking point for such powerful change in life.

The recent elections showed a desire for more conservative candidates by a large portion of the American electorate.  I believe this is because the new chapter of our collective life in America is provoking needs for security and bringing up fear in many people.

Back in the late ’60s life was going through such powerful change with a war in Viet Nam, a sexual revolution, changing gender roles, an often violent civil rights movement,  and in general a feeling of chaotic revolution and deep changes in how people live.

So who was elected president in 1968, at the height of the revolution? Richard Nixon was elected even though so many were wanting a new world that would be free of old rules that had chained people’s free hearts and minds to the jailhouse of a status quo System.

Opposed to this revolutionary movement was the silent majority, as it was called then. They needed to keep life as it had been. It was in grave fear that all the rules it counted on and lived by were rapidly being threatened to extinction.  There was even more prejudice and hatred then for those who were of color or were different from the norm, like gays and lesbians. The silent majority wanted women to be kept in their place, for men to stay dominant, sex to be secretive and old fashioned, and war to protect the “American way of life”.

But then there was also burning of bras, and military draft cards torn up, and race riots in the streets of many cities, and marijuana being used to open minds to new ways of thinking and being.  Rock music was defiantly opposed to the old ways. And the new generation of young people, for the first time maybe, were hostile to their parents and their parents’ values.

Yes back then we were in a very powerful time of change- into a new chapter of living in America and the world with the first glimmers of an Age of Aquarius. Yet at the same time many were getting more conservative in order to hold back the tides of change. And of course that is understandable as sometimes change is overwhelming.

Back then Uranus conjunct Pluto had been exact just two years prior, and its waves of change were still quite strong. Now in 2014, we are in the middle of Uranus square Pluto aspects and waves of change are quite strong again.

In Ferguson Missouri there have been riots to protest the killing of a young black man by police. Though we have made an African American man President of the United States there is still racial disharmony in America.

And now civil rights for gays and lesbians has been in the spotlight the last few years.  And there is war in Iraq again and Syria and threats in Ukraine and a new powerful entity called the Islamic State. And the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is a time bomb. And there is an Ebola virus that has brought great fear into the hearts of many.

And there is even more Corporate domination than ever before. Yet there is a sense felt by most tuned-in people that we are on the cusp of enormous change that will affect all of our lives.

So yes many are fearful and want the a dam to be built to hold back the waves of change. And the recent vote, as back when Nixon was elected, reflects that attitude.

Keep in mind, however, that not many years after that election in 1868, the war was ended and Nixon was impeached, and a whole new culture was born.

And now the great wave is here again  to help us to continue in our evolution.

That evolution was put on hold after the ’60s and 70s as we needed more grounding and also to integrate new electronic advances that would be aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

There has since been a conservative revolution led by Ronald Reagan that brought some needed pull-back and grounding to our consciousness and lives.  And then there was a most important internet and computer revolution that has changed all of our lives in a huge way.

And America has since become an Empire and Superpower, with the Military-Industrial complex that worried President Eisenhower more dominant than ever before.

Counter to that are people all over the world wanting freedom from Corporate and Military controls on their lives, wanting freedom from Governmental controls on their lives.

And much of the changes in the world this year since the Cardinal Grand Cross (which included Uranus and Pluto) is meant to begin to break the chains and bring us to new personal and collective chapters of our lives- on the road to the Age of Aquarius.

And now this week we begin to finish up Autumn Eclipse Season 2014,  a season that is meant to help us end that old chapter of our lives and embrace more the new phase of our lives.

But now as we have moved through a potent Taurus/Scorpio Full Moon from this last week, we are largely facing endings and feeling sadness for days gone by.  It is hard sometimes to let go of the past, even when we know it is time.

We install life-support systems in our minds and hearts, and hold on for dear life.   Death of the old can bring up great fear in us, and we can go through the stages of dying in our minds, like denial and rage and trying to make a deal with God to change the inevitable.

This coming week brings a big turning point in our transformational journey this year. The eclipses from Autumn Eclipse season have passed, and Mercury is back direct again.

That last eclipse, a Solar Eclipse New Moon from October 23, began a lunar cycle that came to climax this past week with the Full Moon. Now this week begins a waning path through the last half of that lunar cycle.  And then we move fast forward at the New Moon in Sagittarius on November 22.

So this week, as the lunar cycle begins the fading half of its journey, we encounter an important set of aspects:  Mars this week conjuncts Pluto on November 10, and squares Uranus on November 12, effectively triggering the Uranus/Pluto square.

Then on November 13 Mars will trigger the exact point of the exact Cardinal Grand Cross from mid April of this year.

This in an important turning point week globally and personally, as we will be prompted to accept the reality of our lives now and to move on. Old issues will come back so we can finish what we started.

Globally the Ferguson racial issue may come to a head again as the Grand Jury there decides if the policeman who killed the young man will be indicted. The meetings between Iran and the Powers that Be of the world concerning Iran’s nuclear programs are coming to an end, and decisions will be made on how to resolve the standoff- or not resolve it. Other Middle East conflicts will be in the spotlight again, and already the Ukraine/Russian conflict has come back again as there are claims Russia has invaded Ukraine once more.

Personally and globally, any issues that have not been resolved or completed, are likely to come back up in our consciousness and lives again.

Do you stay on the path you have previously chosen or not? Can you truly go back? For most this turning point will help them to move on and to get off any fences of indecision they have been sitting on. It is time to complete what was started and to know more completely what direction to move in.

One thing to know for sure, you are right where you need to be now. All has happened for a reason and there is no need to blame your self or others for what has happened. It has been time to end old chapters and seasons and begin new ones, no matter who has done what. “Coulda, woulda, shoulda” ruminations do not matter except to help you to learn from your mistakes for the future.

We are moving into an Age of Aquarius, and that is a big new season in our future. The new chapter this year is to move us one step closer to that reality. And keep in mind that those who voted last week to hold the line on such powerful change reflect a very human desire to feel safe.

See you next week,

Leo

Down to Earth and Astrology Forecast November 2-8

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 1, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Both eclipses from Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 have now passed.  Mercury is almost back to its normal Direct speed, after having been Retrograde for most of October.

That high level of intensity that Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 has brought to us is somewhat subsiding as we move through the Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus this week on November 6.   But we have not completely finished the passage of this Eclipse Season yet.

Yes I  know many of you are getting planted in this new chapter of your life now.   All the powerful planetary movements this year have thrust us into new zones of consciousness and life.

Maybe, however, you are still procrastinating on decisions that need to be made; or still delaying talks with others you have been putting off; or not yet jumping forward into what is right for you now.

For many Autumn Eclipse Season took care of that, and events motivated you to let go more fully of what needs to be released.

The time we are moving into soon, as dust settles from the power of changing winds, is mostly for putting into reality what needs to still be made manifest.

And Mars in Capricorn will help you to do that for the next 5 weeks or so while it stays in Capricorn.  

But the Sun and Venus and Saturn being in Scorpio now will keep you in deeper emotional and consciousness waters, swimming through to the corners of your mind’s stagnant pools.

Those often abandoned thoughts and feelings from our past want to revisit our waking minds in order to find closure or healing.

Revisiting and hopefully closure and healing from past hurts or traumas is often a prerequisite for full entrance into new chapters of our life.

Keeping that old baggage locked up threatens to damage your new relationships and endeavors later in this new phase of your life.

There will be some help soon to break open the locks and chains, as Mars in Capricorn will be triggering the immensely important Uranus/Pluto square late this week and especially next week.

In that regard Mars will make exact conjunction with Pluto on November 10 and exact square with Uranus on November 12.  The days surrounding these planetary aspects should bring greater intensity and winds of change again.

These new winds will help to shake things up again and thus to loosen or break any chains that still bind.    That loosening or breaking will help you to make more firmly the decision you are waiting on, or to be more confident what you have already done or plan to do.

Then after November 22 at the New Moon in Sagittarius, you can feel the fires of new adventures and new inspirations burning.  Taking the leap will be easier then.

Then on December 15 the second to last Uranus/Pluto square is exact, showing us even more transformational movement.

And then on December 21 is the Winter Solstice, more powerful than usual as it forms a New Moon in Capricorn that day when revolutionary Uranus also goes direct.

World events have been very significant this year, threatening “business as usual” in America and the world.   Islamic State, Ebola, Ukraine, and Israel/Palestine events this year are instigating disruptions to the status quo security structures, and promise world changes that will eventually transform the world we live in.

As the economy also transforms, we can expect a New Age in Aquarius to bring us a world of greater equality and fairness,  renewed love and truth, and a world structure based on Diversity in Unity.

There is obviously much work and many great awakenings to be revealed in order for that New World to become reality.

This past week there were a few serious mishaps in our skies.  A rocket taking off from Virginia with the intention of supplying a Space Station exploded and crashed, and a Virgin Galactic rocket meant to be a test case for space travel for the general public also crashed and burned.

Gravity is having its way now as Capricorn and Pluto are the strongest energies.  Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which rules gravity; and Scorpio is ruled by Pluto which rules the underworld. And most of the planets are in earth or water signs now, not fire and air.   So the pull is down and in, not up and out.  Yin is stronger than yang.

Add all that to the fact that our old world’s paradigm and priorities are shifting.   Our desires to keep finding our answers “out there” is dying.  Our needs to go inward and yin-ward and to take care of our human family and its creatures here on Earth is getting stronger and stronger.  We do not need to keep conquering anymore.  We need to be more in touch with inner values of caring and healing.

The Bear is a symbolic animal to keep aware of now.  Look for its presence in your awareness now. It signifies protecting and caring for what we already cherish, and stopping the energies of constant driving toward material gains and greedy behavior. Here locally in Maine it is time to protect our Bears from more abuse through our vote this week.

Our Earth is where we live, and she needs our care and concern and love. Our Mother needs us to be aware of her needs, not to take her for granted anymore.  Going to other planets may be fine one day, but right now we need to take care of home and its inhabitants. The message now, especially with the rocket crashes, is to “come down to Earth”.

The Full Moon this week is Thursday November 6 at 5:23 PM EST.     It is formed with the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus.   This is a dance primal passion (Scorpio) and earthly security and calm (Taurus).    These are both fixed signs and both desire to hold on and not let go. Scorpio holds onto feelings and emotions, especially ones that have come from hurts, rejections or betrayals.  Taurus holds onto physical possessions and people. Each is stubborn in its own way.   Be careful not to get into any tugs of war this week with others.

This Full Moon is one that also seeks balance between keeping the calm order and letting in passions, intensities, and disruptions.

Afterwards it may feel like a turning point to ending the Autumn Eclipse Season, but remain aware that there is more to come this autumn.

See you next week,

Leo

Finishing up the Autumn Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast November 17-23.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 16, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Sunday November 17 at 10:16 AM ushers in a strong Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon.   This Full Moon brings a potential resolution and/or climax to what was opened up at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on November 3.

In fact this lunation brings with it a potential resolution for the whole Autumn Eclipse season.    Between this Full Moon and the next New Moon in Sagittarius on December 2, there should be clarity and a sense of direction gained after all the intensity and shakeup of Autumn Eclipse Season 2013.

This Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus is not an easy one for many people, and the energies may feel dark or heavy at times, and there may also be an intensity that affects our relationships and attitudes.  For some there may be inner or relational “tugs of war” as we work out issues from recent times and get ready to move into new phases of our life.

Though this week may not bring much upliftment, we are given the opportunity to get ourselves back “together” again.

The eclipses, Uranus/Pluto, and Mercury Retrograde  tended to shake things up, reveal what has been held back or covered up, have us rethink our positions or beliefs, and perhaps even shift our direction.

Now with the Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon giving signature to our coming week, we are brought to an inner place of needing to be more real and practical, more in touch with a grounded sense of what may have been previously only known in our intellects.

With so many planets now in Scorpio or Earth signs like Virgo, it has been “cleanup time” both in our physical world and our inner emotional reality.    It has been and continues to be a time to release old “stuff” in our homes, bodies, and our consciousness.   This cleanup will help us to open ourselves to new experience and new adventures in our lives.

For now use this week and the waning Moon that begins after the Full Moon on the 17th, to come down to reality, to find the truth, and to repair or release what has broken down.

If you have been getting more clarity since Mercury went back Direct on November 10, that clarity will be more full as Mercury this week gets back to speed.

If you feel there has been some dis-illusion over the last several weeks, perhaps some awakening and enlightenment has accompanied this loss of illusion.   Accepting our selves and our lives as they are in reality builds a foundation built on truth.

From that place of truth, you can then use inspiration and positive energies to bring you the life that actualizes your full authentic potential.

You do not have to “live in a dream world” to be happy.   Often our creation of a fantasy world inside is a direct compensation for the pain, suffering and abuse we have experienced.

But if we truly want to transform our abuse patterns, our feelings of victimization, our low self esteem and expectation of failure, we need to release those pain patterns, but also the illusions that were created to help us “get through the night”.

Those two opposite attitudes are two sides of the same coin, and our soul’s transformation and healing journey needs release of the whole pattern.

So let this week bring you to more cleaning out and more facing of deeper realities.   But to balance some of the “gravity”, there will be some upliftment toward the end of the week, as the Sun goes into Sagittarius late on Thursday November 21.

Sagittarius is like a fireplace lit brightly on a dark night.   It is a mutable fire sign that inspires, brings meaning and faith, and expands our perspective to give a bigger picture.

Sagittarius seeks answers and a “certain way”, and expects people to take the “higher ground” to lead upstanding lives.  It does attempt to see the best in people and life, and usually has strong opinions of how things should be.  It loves to learn “higher knowledge”, philosophy or spirituality especially, and loves taking new adventures that bring that knowledge.

Like all signs it has its weaknesses too.  Sag trusts its intuition and can leap into situations it regrets later.  It can also, as a genuine and spontaneous expresser, say things it later regrets.   Also it can be so uplifted and excited as a free spirit that it loses its grounding and forgets it is in a body.   Also it can sometimes not understand how people can do things or have attitudes other than the idealistic way Sag envisions.

When the Moon joins the Sun in Sagittarius on December 2, that will bring a New Moon in Sagittarius, and then we will all be prompted to new inspirations and adventures, to finding meaning and solutions, to seeing our lives from a wider perspective, with positive thoughts and feelings and greater faith. That will bring us into a new chapter beyond the Autumn Eclipse Season.

New events will be the result, based on our experiences during the Autumn Eclipse Season.

Also around the time of the New Moon in Sagittarius there will be a new comet, Comet Ison, making its appearance in our human Earth world. It may be quite bright or have faded and died from its close encounters with the Sun.

If it is a meaningful Comet appearance, we can expect world events both spectacular and powerful.

The issue of Iran and the world’s powers coming together over Iran’s nuclear program will be front and center.  What happens with that issue will greatly affect the Middle East and the world, especially Israel.

Ironically and hypocritically, the powers who are negotiating with Iran to rid itself of even the possibility of creating nuclear weapons, all have such weapons. Even Israel has nuclear weapons of mass destruction.

Of course the only reality that would truly help our world is that all of these countries rid themselves of weapons of mass destruction, not just Iran and Syria.

We are moving faster and faster into an Age of Aquarius, and it is essential in that journey for the idea of “us versus them”, of survival of the fittest struggles to have what you want for your self at the expense of others- to end.

We are moving inexorably into a world of equality, of Diversity in Unity, of liberation. Power and responsibility for the world will shift to be in the hands of “the people”.

This is our world, not a world to be run by the rich and entitled.

Events will continue to erupt in out world that bring us all to know we are all ONE Family, no matter our differences. And only then will we heal ourselves and our sacred Earth in the Age of Aquarius.

See you next week,

Leo
