Let Go Into Inner Flow and Astrology Forecast February 17-23

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week’s meeting between Mars and Uranus in Aries created an intense energy field for us to move through.

And its overall purposes were to empower each of us, and to liberate us from stuck places in our minds or lives.

It also intended to motivate us to move forward on our path, even if that path was recently challenged or impeded.

And overall for many it brought breakthroughs and liberation from stuck places.

And we know it is essential now to be true to Authentic Self and spiritual Pathways as much as possible.

We are in a New Life Chapter now, and the Mars/Uranus conjunction tried to push us over any humps that were in the way.

Now we sit on the other side of the bridge, searching for more clarity of direction, hoping for a new normal before too long.  The “old normal” has no more comfort to it and cannot be counted on anymore.

Relationships were very difficult to make or maintain last week, since Mars, Uranus, and Aries are each more oriented to independence, personal space, and individual freedom.

Now that we have passed through that Mars/Uranus “storm”, this coming week (especially after this week’s Full Moon in Virgo) we need to settle into where we now find ourselves.

We may be beginning to experience a letdown now as we “come down” from last week’s aspects and the Eclipse Season that has recently ended.

Part of this letdown may show us some doubt over what we have previously chosen, and it is wise now to let the process continue forward without jumping to conclusions or doing or saying anything impulsive.

This week contains an abundance or planets in Yin signs (water and earth signs), so the down-and-in process is in gear this week.

The Sun moves into Pisces this Monday the 18th, and Pisces is slow go, with the flow. It is time this week and this month to lay back more and let it be.

Pisces is a mutable water sign, and as such it is changeable and eludes and escapes boundaries, borders, and stop signs.  It just keeps in the flow.

Pisces represents the world behind the world, the world of soul and many different frequencies.  It often does not take well to the “real world”, the material world, to anything harsh or burdensome.

It is sensitive and empathic, sometimes easily hurt, and it can go into victim consciousness at times.

It picks up the feelings of others and for some it then becomes difficult at times to differentiate between its own feelings and the feelings of others.

Pisces has a little of each sign in it, and that is why it sometimes has difficulty keeping a solid identity or even knowing what it truly wants and needs.

The Christ is one of its natural archetypes of identity, and so it can become very sacrificial, but also very compassionate and honoring of that which is greater than itself (God, Goddess, Universe, etc.).

Since it seeks to enter frequencies of soul, beyond the material “real” world, it is susceptible to ways of escaping, including with drugs or alcohol.

The inner soul world that Pisces is oriented toward is one of images, signs and symbols.   The dream world is its world, a place that one can escape to, and one that is understood better by the ability to read signs and symbols.

But I am sure you can see how that soul world is nebulous and knowing what is true versus what may be an illusion can be challenging. Poems and metaphor are natural in that world.

So in this Sun in Pisces time ahead, it is best to surrender to the inner soul world as often as possible.  That Pisces time takes us all the way up to Spring Equinox and Sun in Aries March 20.

So this month ahead is for processing, meditating, feeling your feelings, and getting ready for new beginnings in the Spring.

Last week gave us much Aries energy and desires to thrust forward in our lives, with confidence and empowerment.

So this week can feel like a letdown, as the feeling of forward movement was short lived last week, and we are being taken into the dream world of soul now.

Likely full forward movement will have to wait until Spring or Summer 2019.

On February 19, the day after the Sun moves into Pisces, Mercury conjuncts Neptune ( The planet most affiliated with Pisces.  So mentally dipping into deeper feelings will be most natural then.  Using one’s logical, left brain faculties will be quite challenged in finding answers.

Again it is best to allow process to unfold before knowing ultimate answers now.

Also on the 19th there is a Full Moon in Virgo at 10:54 AM EST.  A Full Moon in Virgo has the Sun in Pisces opposite the Moon in Virgo.

This is usually a very gentle full moon, one that requires a letting go of ego or needs to control or dominate.

The Sun in Pisces seeks letting go into the inner dimensions; Moon in Virgo seeks order in the material world.  Virgo categorizes, analyses, differentiates, and looks for what is wrong that needs to be fixed.

Pisces unifies and in so doing is non discriminating, which is one of its strengths and weaknesses.  Virgo naturally sees the differences and faults, which is one of its strengths and weaknesses.

What those two signs have in common are that they both want to be of service, sometimes to the detriment of self.

So this full moon may challenge your ability to see where the truth lies, and also challenge your ability to let things flow while still finding order.

It is best to surrender to this Full Moon and to know that being down does not necessarily mean to be depressed.

Later in the week, on Friday February 22, Venus conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn.  Watch out for power and control battles in relationships. 

In the greater world, so much was coming to a head last week, most notably with a potential government shutdown again. That was averted, a bill signed, but Trump declared a National Emergency so he can have the funds to build his wall.

We will see over the next few weeks what happens there, after the legalities are all considered.

The stock market has been surging in recent weeks, but make no mistake the overall movement is downward and the economy and Military/Industrial Complex will be transformed in a big way over the next few years.

We have put ourselves on life support systems to keep the Old World alive and breathing. It cannot survive.

Last week we saw the firm intention by the Trump administration and Israel to put Iran  in its crosshairs for attack.  And Venezuela may also be targeted.  Bolton and Pompeo have Trump’s ear and both are known war hawks and neocons.

Additionally we heard that the Kushner/Trump “peace”plan for Israel and the Palestinians will soon be unveiled.  There also are new female members of Congress who are trying to educate the masses to know how much the Palestinians are being dominated and oppressed.

So much of the USA government is heavily influenced by the powerful Israeli lobbies that feed the greed and power hunger of the unbalanced Capitalists of the USA and world.

Remember that Truth needs to be revealed and honored in order for there to be a unified marriage between Love and Truth, brought together like the Yin-Yang symbol.

The whole Middle East is in such danger now, and any kind of match will set it on fire. And the Palestinian issue holds so much of the tension there underneath all else.

This is similar to what was happening in South Africa in the ’80s, before the revolution that ended the horrible oppression of black people there.   We will need a world wide mass protest movement to bring justice for the Palestinians and peace for both Israel and Palestine.  Israel will need vast healing for the PTSD it still suffers from the horror of its oppression in World War II at the hands of the Nazi’s.   That PTSD is a strong influence in how they treat the Palestinians.

All is moving forward toward the Age of Aquarius and a new world of equality; Diversity within unity; and Love and Truth as its pillars.

Keep the faith no matter how it looks on the surface. Fear and Hatred kill the buzz of Age of Aquarius consciousness.

Talk next week,

Leo

New Moon in Aquarius and Astrology Forecast February 3-9

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on February 2, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this week’s forecast, we are still in Eclipse Season.   That ends at the New Moon in Aquarius on Monday February 4 at 4:04 PM EST.

But now as I write, I can certainly feel the soul of the darkening Moon.

We have been through a very powerful and challenging Eclipse Season; and now as we grieve for what we are letting go of,  we may also be unsure what is ahead of us now.

If you are having difficulty making decisions, or choosing the right path, or even knowing what direction to move toward, you have much company in our human family.

What is going on in the greater world is also quite confusing for many.  World events have been showing us that what used to be considered normal, is very elusive and difficult to grab onto anymore.

That “old normal” is leaving us, and that alone can get us feeling insecurities, sadness, and grief for a time period that is beginning to disappear in our life’s rear view mirror.

The Trump era is breaking down old reliable institutions, old ways of relating to other nations and cultures, and old agreements (like on Climate Change,  and nuclear weapon production ).

The stock market has become quite volatile and unpredictable.  The USA government is now in long term shutdown.  An old and important agreement with Iran has been discarded. We are apparently pulling out of old military stances in Syria and Afghanistan. The Presidential administration is in chaos and run by an obviously narcissistic and unpredictable President.

Our relationships with China and Russia are quite arguably worse than they have been recently.  Mass murders seem to happen much more than before.  The Arab and Muslim worlds are growing farther and farther apart from Western nations.

Fear is all around our collective energy fields, ready to be absorbed by anyone who wants to partake.

Yes we can be quite confused on what to do and where to go in our personal lives too, as they are a microcosm to the macrocosm or our greater world.

The Universe is getting us all prepared for our new world and its challenges, by helping us to release old patterns, old belief systems, old habits, old relationships or jobs that no longer resonate with our true and authentic self.

Our changing consciousness is the most important of all. Old programming and conditioning by culture, religion, family and corporate state, from days gone by, do not serve us now.

And planetary events, like at this last Eclipse Season, mean to speed up the process of growth and help us to transform our minds and hearts into the energies and intents of the Age of Aquarius.

But now right after the eclipses there is some unbalance, confusion, and fear to deal with. Many feel held back from jumping in. But a turning point nudges us forward this week.

The New Moon in Aquarius on the 4th of February is a boost forward for our lives.  

It would be good in the two or three days surrounding that new moon, to meditate and make strong intentions, in relationship with the Universe.

We may not know exactly where we are going, but we can trust the process, trust ourselves, and trust the Universe now.  We can do this for our personal lives, but also for the world now.

I do not believe we can avoid some really difficult days ahead in America and western civilization.  The Military/Industrial (economic) Complex that President Eisenhower warned would endanger our democracy, is making a prophet out of that President.

And so the Military and Economy will need to humble “themselves”,  be transformed, and lose Empire status.

Major conflict and major economic challenges are ahead, as is more culture war between differing American cultures, as happened in the Civil War 1860-1865.

The Middle East is a tinder box now, close to exploding.

Important planetary movements to the planets in the natal charts of the USA and Israel will trigger big events in those countries soon

In the USA natal chart , Pluto in Capricorn in its second house will see many powerful triggers to it over the next few years.

Pluto will experience its first ever Pluto Return in 2021-2022, while at almost the same time both Saturn and Jupiter will be making conjunction with that same natal USA Pluto.

The USA Pluto in its second house is representative of the Military/Industrial complex.

Uranus has been squaring the USA Pluto in 2017, 2018, 2019. Pluto returns to itself in 2021/22.  Jupiter and Saturn conjunct it in 2020-21.

So you can see how powerfully this will be- a big overhaul of the system, and a downgrade of the Empire.

And this is all part of the opening of a portal into the Age of Aquarius.

Add Jupiter conjunct Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius in December 2020, and we have the ingredients that will help us put our toes into the Age of Aquarius. That does not mean all will be perfectly Aquarian Age then, not at all.

But nevertheless, whatever darkness surrounds us then will have huge beams of light penetrating that darkness and lighting our way forward on the New Age Path.

This week has the Aquarius New Moon on February 4. That will get our mojo beginning to purr.

Then the themes of Aquarius will follow, so we will be “persuaded” to leave our heart’s desires to be seen as special and popular, and instead be pulled more toward our head’s intention to stay with idealistic notions of diverse but equal in value.  Making contribution to community or favorite group or organization may be “in the cards” for some of us.

Uranus is the “ruling” planet of Aquarius. It was discovered in 1781, around the time of two revolutions: USA and France.

These revolutions were motivated by desires to replace royalty with democracy and power to the people.

Uranus/Aquarius highly values individual freedom and liberation from that which chains us.

It is the anti-ego sign, seeing all as equals and seeing strength in community and groups.

Even though it is anti-ego, it highly values distinct individuality and uniqueness.

Aquarius also highly values social consciousness, and is very sensitive to culture and group thinking and action.

If a Leo and Aquarius both went shopping for a car, the Leo would tend to want the shiny car that made its heart sing and be a popular model.

Aquarius would want the car that got good mileage and was good for the environment and was from a dealership that was a co-op in community.

After this Aquarius New Moon, the lights go back on again and we strive to move forward, even if we do not totally know where we are going.

And with so many not feeling secure in the changing winds swirling all around, the message is to let go of needs to have absolute answers and direction.

There are coming events that will need to show up before we know what to do and where to go.

The New Moon in Aquarius will open the gates for events that are resulting from what shook up during Eclipse Season.

Be on your toes for change, as it is coming whether we are perfectly “in shape” for it or not.

After the Storms and Astrology Forecast January 27- February 2

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on January 27, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move into the 4th and final quarter of the lunar cycle that began on January 5 at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.

This last quarter phase of the Moon begins on Sunday January 27 in Scorpio.   It signifies a winding down from the intensity of Eclipse Season,  a season that will effectively end on February 4 at the Aquarius New Moon.

For so many, this Eclipse Season has really shaken us out of our equilibrium and mental/emotional balance.

The “shaking up” puts us in a better position to be able to move with change and transformation

And the coming transformation will be immense, throwing us more fully into this New Chapter of our collective lives, on the way to an Age of Aquarius.

The “normal” that we were used to- no longer exists. A new normal has not been found yet.  Many are thus feeling an inner insecurity, and often when faced with making decisions cannot easily do so.

Look at the world we live in now.  The government had been shut down with both parties playing chicken with our lives.  Now a temporary opening of the government has begun, but it is rather tentative and weak.

And also during this Eclipse Season, it is getting more and more obvious that the Trump government is quite dysfunctional and on the highway to possible impeachment.

The USA government is showing signs of great decay, and though the stock market has been rising over the last few weeks, it will soon be travelling rapidly downward again, as it did last year.

The USA and world economy are going into slow-down movements and likely recession in 2019, which will eventually bring a revamped and transformed economy, hopefully one more fair to all.

The Cultural Divide has widened in America, and each side is quite angry and not seeing the value of the opposition’s viewpoint.

But there are many of us now who are seeing new ways, outside the boxes of black versus white, or yang versus yin or male versus female, so to speak.

This Eclipse Season has been showing me that really big changes are forthcoming soon.

The Military/Industrial Complex Empire is dying and is searching for new blood to drink to stay alive, maybe now in Venezuela where Western Governments are endorsing someone to be president who was not elected to be President of Venezuela.  Oh and by the way Venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world.

And some version of economy that includes some forms of socialism are on the way to our collective lives.

And it is getting more and more likely to me that some grand UFO/extraterrestrial event will come to our planet in a big way soon.

The point I am making, even if not all these events happen, is that our world is ready for a huge transformation. 10 years from now, when one looks back at today, it will be hardly recognizable.

AI will be  big part of that new world, robots will doing many jobs humans do now, and that will be a large part of this new economy on the way.

I learned this week that World War I and World War II both came on the heels of vast technological world changes, and that will likely happen again. Israel and the Middle East will be the catalysts.

This passing Eclipse Season feels like a huge turning point in our personal and collective lives.

This New Chapter we are all in now, has been pushed fast forward during that Eclipse Season.

Under the surface of our world, in unseen frequencies, much has changed during this Eclipse Season.

Those in other realms are helping us clear the way. Though it may feel scary sometimes, we are getting ready.

And now as we move through the last quarter of our lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse on January 5, we can go through the rubble from the eclipse storms and try to make sense of all that is shifting in our lives, as we prepare for the New Moon in Aquarius on February 4.

At the end of this week, Mars in Aries will square Pluto in Capricorn.

Expect the intensity level in our collective energy field and lives to increase with that aspect.  Powerful events are more likely than usual.

Then on Saturday February 2 is Imbolc, an annual sacred turning point. It is half way between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. It is what our conventional modern world calls Groundhog Day.

Imbolc was celebrated as a time of initiation, a time when one could be blessed on the way through a new life gateway.

It is time to sense the coming of Spring Equinox, only 6 or 7 weeks away.

The Chinese celebrate a New Year just after this Aquarius New Moon.  This coming year is the year of the Pig, an Earth Pig.

It is the last sign in that zodiac, so this coming year is a year of transition, saying goodbye to the last cycle and getting ready for the new cycle.

With Eclipse Season coming to a close this week, do not jump to any life conclusions. Let the process play out this week as we get ready for new beginnings at the Aquarius New Moon on February 5.

Events that are a direct result of what got shaken up during Eclipse Season will come out after the New Moon in Aquarius.

So much is unknown now, and we are at our best if we can respect the mystery of life now.  Best to let go of overly firm hands of control.

The ego will fight now to maintain control, but we are best yielding now to our “higher self” as it will leads us more gracefully forward.

Trust and Faith can greatly help our journey now. All is happening for a reason, all is in Divine Order.

Fear is our greatest enemy now. Love and Truth can lead our way if we so choose.

Enjoy the ride

Leo

Riding the Waves and Astrology Forecast January 20-26.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 19, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we experience the last eclipse this Eclipse Season. It is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on January 21 at 12:16 AM EST.

Full Moons, whether Lunar Eclipse or not, always have the Sun exactly opposite the Moon. In this case the Sun is in Aquarius and the Moon in Leo.

Actually the Sun will have just moved into Aquarius on Sunday the 20th, as the Moon moves into Leo several hours later.

When they meet up in opposition, they will be in the very early portion of Leo and Aquarius.

The Sun will be at less than 1 degree of Aquarius, and the Moon at less than 1 degree of Leo.

The greater world is reflecting this opposition very well this week, as Leo is the “royal” leader, and Aquarius is the people or the body that is supposed to represent the people, in this case the USA Congress.

Executive branch of government is Leo, legislative branch is more Aquarius.

Trump versus Pelosi and Schumer is a perfect representation of this Leo/Aquarius opposition.

Remember that a Lunar Eclipse is probably 10 times or more potent than a normal Full Moon.

So that is why this standoff with Trump and Pelosi is so intense and so important on a very deep level of collective consciousness.

Something is bound to breakdown or breakthrough on this tug-of-war.  Something will happen to shift everything in a new way.

That is likely just because this is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, but also because this Full Moon in Leo creates a T-Square with Uranus in Aries.

And Uranus is the planet of breakthroughs, awakenings, inventiveness, and liberation.

Yes our world is holding together by mere threads of connection.  The Mueller investigation is also part of this eclipse and t-square, and so something is on the verge of breaking open in that case as well.

And the stock market, which had been falling rapidly, rebounded with the Bulls this last week.  But this will be short lived and more falling will follow some time after the Eclipse.

A Total Lunar Eclipse, as this one is, should be seen in the light of turning points.  And maybe great events will occur close to the Eclipse Date, but often events do not show up for 3-6 months later, events that are directly associated with the Eclipse.

So look deeply for signs that show you exactly what the turning point is in our world and in your personal life. Pay special attention to dreams, which might be especially intense and revealing now.

In the greater world, are there signs around the eclipse date, that show we are truly moving toward impeachment?  Are there signs the economy will enter a recession or depression before too long?  Is the government standoff for a wall showing the winds are changing in some way between the Royal President and the power of the people.

Trump is as close to identifying with presidential royalty or dictator  as I have witnessed before in the USA . And Congress is more deaf to the needs of the people than it has ever been. Now it mostly answers to special interests and big money corporations.

The Empire certainly rivals the Roman Empire that began the Age of Pisces, which is soon ending for the Age of Aquarius.

Can we return to our Aquarian principles of people power, equality, and freedom; or do we continue our slow journey into rule and privilege by the few.

America began when Uranus (the ruling planet of Aquarius) was being discovered (1781).  The USA natal Moon from its July 4, 1776 inception is in Aquarius.

We used to be a model for the Age of Aquarius and its Diversity within Unity paradigm.

Can we return to those principles and be a beacon of light for the world, and not a Superpower Empire ?

This Aquarius/Leo Lunar Eclipse is a turning point in the greater world and in personal lives.

How about in your life? So many people have been up and down and all around lately. Much breaking down, much lighting up, feeling the depth of change in life now.

What more do you need to release? What will be baggage in your new chapter and has to go?

What are you seeing and feeling that is coming into your life now? Can you embrace it with confidence yet?

The ego wants to control and hold on, as change comes swirling in.  Unclasp your arms, let go and release. Surrender now and move forward and evolve.

Your consciousness wants to expand and grow, learn new ways of being.

Are any of your current relationships keeping you locked up and unable to move forward? Can you change those patterns? Do you need to consider more drastic options?

Are you keeping anything, including job or where you live, just because you are having a difficult time letting go of your security blankets? You can start by releasing old attitudes and beliefs that limit you.

Let this Lunar Eclipse Full Moon serve as a turning point for you, as you open to the change that is aligned with your best interests, your authentic self and life, your sense of purpose.

This week is complicated, in part because we are experiencing a Lunar Eclipse Full moon that is part of an intensified T-square with Uranus. That alone is a real shake-up pattern.

But in addition Venus in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces on Sunday January 20. This is such an idealistic combination that represents higher ideals but maybe also romanticized ideas. It can also mean more confusion in regards to matters of the heart.

On Monday the 21st Mars squares Saturn, putting lights on red/stop and go/green at the same time.  So while the Eclipse is a sign of movement and breaking open, Mars square gravity pulling Saturn says no you need to stop or at least wait.

Mars is in Aries, where it is at its strongest. Saturn is in Capricorn where it is most strong. This is like putting one foot on the gas and one on the breaks at the same time.

Best to hold back and wait till the best time later.

There is war sprouting up in the Middle East now, but it may hold off for a little bit with this Mars/Saturn aspect. Not sure how long.

That which has seemingly been settled may show events or signs that make you pause, further evaluate and process before moving forward, which would happen at the Aquarius New Moon on February 4, a new moon that effectively ends Winter Eclipse Season 2019.

In-between seasons sacred Imbolc is on February 2, then the New Moon on the 4th that may have strong new beginnings that are a direct effect of this Eclipse Season. Chinese New Year happens then also.

Back to this week, on Tuesday the 22nd, Venus in Sagittarius is conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius. Then on Friday the 25th Mars in Aries trines Jupiter in Sagittarius.

This is back to the green light of going forward.

So ups and downs, stops and go may be a theme this week. Could go from manic or impulsive to a hard stop and back again

Do your best not be impulsive on the one hand, nor judgmental defeatist on the other hand.

I’d say put your seat belt on all week, not just on the Lunar Eclipse Day.

It is time to break out and break open. It is also time to stop and let go.

The first actual podcast will be in early February.

Till next week,

Lunar Eclipse in Leo and Astrology Forecast January 13-19

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on January 12, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in between 2 strong eclipses this week, waiting on the second one: a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on January 21 at 12:16 AM EST.

All Full Moons have the Sun and Moon exactly opposite one another, and all Lunar Eclipses are Full Moons.

This one has the Sun in Aquarius and Moon in Leo at almost 1 degree of each sign.

The Sun is in Aquarius, so it wants to shine its light on the mind, the inventive, unusual thinking of the mind.  From there it develops firm principles it is determined to keep (Aquarius is a fixed air sign).

While in Aquarius, it also looks beyond the personal and subjective, and sees more from a detached, more objective mental state.  It wants to join groups or be a part of socially conscious causes, but even as it is so group conscious, at the same time it needs to be very individualized and unique.

It can identify as the “odd man out”, the black sheep,  the one who is different, the one who rebels against  the common thinking and common way of being

Aquarius carries the principle of equality, everyone is equal in intrinsic value to one another.

But as it  demands equality, it can go overboard with that principle and demand everyone in the group wearing the same “uniform” so to speak.

When it does that it loses half of what it represents. It is meant to be within a group while being a distinctive individual.

If it goes to wanting all in the group being the same, it loses the individual part of being an Aquarius.

On the contrary, if it becomes so different from everyone else that it can no longer find a group it identifies with, then it leaves the group part of being Aquarius.

So if Aquarius is done right and honors both group needs and unique individuality inside it, it then can be a member of a Diversity Within Unity paradigm.

So the Leo Moon opposes that Aquarius Sun in the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on January 21.

That Leo Moon wants to express in an open-hearted creative fashion.  It wants to shine its bright light and have fun like a 3 year old child does.

And in the process, it seeks attention, as it craves being liked and admired. It wants to be special.

So there is one of the conflicts between Aquarius and Leo.  Leo wants natural open hearted expression without filter or censor.

Aquarius is more socially conscious and does not want to say the wrong thing or stand out in the crowd.

And it may have an attitude against those who think they are superior, special, or privileged.

And Leo may think that Aquarius expresses in a boring intellectual manner. It may have an attitude against groups that they see as never making decisions or never energized enough to manifest.

So look at “we the people” and then look at President Trump and his administration.

Look at the growing nationalism in the world, a nationalism that is most always using tyrants or despots to run those countries.

But also look at the growing of consciousness that seeks to spread the wealth in the world.

Can we develop a world of social consciousness, equality between peoples, mental ingenuity,and freedom to be whatever you want to be (Aquarius)?

Can we develop with it a world of heart-opened creative expression that has leaders who provide inspiration and motivation (Leo)?

As a former Sun in Leo President with Aquarius Rising used to say “yes we can”.

So the Aquarius/Leo Lunar Eclipse gets so close this week and you will be feeling it days before it actually happens on January 20/21.

This week, on the 13th, about half way between eclipses, Neptune in Pisces squares Jupiter in Sagittarius.

Neptune loves to be Pisces, said to be the ruler of Pisces.  Jupiter loves to be in Sagittarius, the sign it is said to rule.

Together they seek to transport consciousness into other dimensions. Neptune travels into many differing frequencies of consciousness and soul, navigating the depths of watery, mystical and musical realms- without boundaries.

Jupiter in Sagittarius seeks to soar high above the ground looking down from the bigger picture, inspired and inspiring, uplifting and uplifted, finding greater meaning for lives from the higher dimensions.

Together Jupiter in Sagittarius with Neptune in Pisces are best experienced through the process of surrendering and yielding to the greater power of the Universe, to the wisdom of the Ages, to the silence at the Source.

Deep meditation, psychedelic journeys,  synchronicity, signs from the Universe, knowing all is connected, is all available at this Jupiter square Neptune which can be felt for several days.

Imagine your Self at midnight, at the dark of the Moon, in a small boat in the middle of the ocean, no land in sight, having no direction. And up in the sky above you, in a sky filled with thousands of stars,  is a flying object with many multicolored lights hovering above you.

You feel vulnerable and you know you have no control. All you can do is surrender and with faith appreciate the beauty and majesty of what you are experiencing.

Jupiter square Neptune can also bring a disorientation from “normal” ways of thinking and seeing. It can be confusion, desires to escape, perhaps escape with substances,  and a feeling of chaos.

So it is best to meditate; or dance and sing; or stare at the night sky; or use your imagination to see beyond the veil of our conventional world.

Being in between the eclipses, and also on the day of moving into a second quarter phase of the Moon, this can be a rather intense time of transition.

You are moving more and more fully into this New Chapter of your life.

This week starts with Neptune square Jupiter on the 13th, the same day as the second quarter Moon in Aries is pushing us upward and onward.  And also on the 13th is a Mercury conjunct Saturn in Capricorn that may be sobering and facing reality.

So that is a mixed bag with seemingly contradictory messages.

Jupiter square Neptune is other-worldly while Mercury conjunct Saturn is taking our minds to stark reality.

And all of this is happening right in the middle of two eclipses. with the second one on the way for early next week.

Use this week to remind your self not to jump to conclusions now, and to know you are in transition between life chapters and in the middle of strong transformational energies.

If you are unsure of what is happening or where you are going, join the club. It has grown in membership.

So much is changing so fast, it is not easy or maybe even possible to get a firm grip on your life.

So let go of controls, learn to just Be Now in the present moment with your mind surrendered into a supportive role.

All is happening in divine order even if it feels like a shit show some of the time.

The stock market will continue downward movement soon, the government will likely stay closed with impeachment on the back burner, and the Middle East is a match away from explosion.

We are moving more and more strongly toward the Age of Aquarius.  This is a process of evolution into that consciousness and world, so let the process play out without letting fear or panic rule you.

Trust and faith can go a long way now, and that includes trust and faith in your Self.

There will be the first podcast of Perspectives from the Sky coming out next week. Will let you know how to connect to it.

Oh by the way we safely arrived in Sedona Arizona last week and are really enjoying the beauty of land and sky here.

Till next week,

Leo

Moving Toward Solar Eclipse New Moon and Astrology Forecast December 23-January 5

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 22, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, as we pass through the day of Winter Solstice, we now face Winter Season.  For my “down-under” readers, I wish you well as you have just entered your Summer Season.

All of us are now into a new Eclipse Season, with the first of two eclipses showing on January 5/6.  It is Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.

And we better put on our seat belts, because the Eclipse Season roller-coaster  is already moving intensely.

  1. The USA is now experiencing a government shutdown over funding for a border wall with Mexico.  Trump is saying he will do most anything to get his wall financed. Hence the partial Government shutdown.
  2. The stock market is rapidly moving downward, something readers of Perspectives  from the Sky have known was coming.
  3. The proof needed for moving toward impeachment is getting stronger from the Mueller investigation. And Democrats taking over Congress in 2019 are likely to move toward impeachment proceedings.
  4. North Korea made a statement this week that strongly stated they will not unilaterally take down their nuclear program. That was a big shift in USA/Korea affairs. Other hot spots like Israel and the Middle East are also heating up.
  5. Trump stated pretty firmly this past week that he is going to withdraw the USA military from Syria, and likely also from Afghanistan.

Yes Trump is a narcissistic, vindictive, child much of the time.  But come on, how can we be against these troop withdrawals?  We should never have invaded or bombed Syria (nor should we any other country that has not attacked us first).   So why are so many “progressives” against Trump’s decision on Syria?

If it is just because you do not like Trump, that is not a good reason to oppose this Syria move is it? Yes I do realize this decision may be largely due to Trump’s bromance with Putin and collusion with Russia, who is a strong ally with Syria.  But nevertheless, we are taking troops out of harm’s way and getting out of the business of being in a country we were not invited into.

This all seems like a part of the movement into a Diversity within Unity new world paradigm, where there are no more superpower countries or Empires.  There are instead countries equal in value to one another, working in community with one another, and yet respecting one another to find their own identity with self determination as an individualized culture.

I have been witnessing much growth and consciousness expansion in many people since this Eclipse Season began.  There is a stronger commitment to stay on their soul path.

And I have seen much releasing of old tapes and stories that have previously been ingrained in minds and hearts.

We are each a microcosm of what is going on in the Universe, world and country.  We are each transforming and evolving so we can meet the new energies and adapt to what is needed in this new world, so we can each fulfill our purpose and destiny this time around.

Keep in mind as this Eclipse Season progresses that what we are seeing in the world is not merely problems to be solved according to whatever agenda or “team” we identify with.

We are truly in transition between ages, and each of us is finding our own way through it, and our place within it.

Our challenges come to us so we can transform and evolve, and while doing so fulfill a purpose within the greater community.

I do not mean this purpose needs to be something “important” or grandiose. To some extent I simply mean finding one’s authentic Self and expressing it.  You may work in a grocery store and have evolved into someone who brings kindness, warmth, hope, or joy to people who come in shopping.

Or you may be a parent who raises their children with love and loving guidance.

These times of transformation, like now during an Eclipse Season, can help you to release old traumas, wounds, and stories that have limited your ability to find youurself and fulfill your purpose.

This week, we move into the second and waning half of the current lunar cycle. That is so because a Cancer Full Moon happened on December 22.

Now we go more yin-ward in anticipation of our first eclipse on January 5.  So we have turned the corner, next stop the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.

So this holiday week should be a relatively peaceful one this year.  The caveat is that Eclipse Season is getting closer to the first actual eclipse on January 5.

So intensity may increase as a result.

I will driving from Maine to Sedona Arizona starting on Thursday December 27, so will not be writing next week’s Perspectives.  I will pick up again on the day of the actual first eclipse January 5.

That eclipse is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn at 8:28 PM EST.  The next day wake-up call Uranus will be going Direct. Its chain-breaking, liberating, transforming energy will thus be pretty strong during the days surrounding the eclipse.

When Uranus goes Direct, all planets will be Direct, suggesting time to move forward on all cylinders.

And that Capricorn Solar Eclipse New Moon will be quite important and strong as both Pluto and Saturn will be conjunct it.

Pluto is the Guardian of the Underworld and Saturn rules gravity.  So the usually rather low key and even boring Capricorn New Moon will instead be rather powerful.

It will be great for endings; transforming old structures into new ones; releasing old stories and beliefs; making commitments; making firm resolutions; tearing down walls of over-protection; making and organizing plans; having discipline to do what you need to do; setting goals you will accomplish; manifesting what has previously only been dreams or ideas.

There is a destructive energy that comes from Pluto/Saturn connections, so stay alert to what in your life may need to die.

This Capricorn Solar Eclipse is rather closely opposing the USA natal Sun in Cancer and square its Saturn in Libra.

The issues that came from events this last week concerning Syria and the Middle East, the stock market and economy, impeachment, North Korea, and government shutdown over a border wall will intensify.

Breakdowns of old ways and breakthroughs into new ways is a theme for this Eclipse Season.  Trust the process, and resist falling into crippling fear or negativity.  Have a mantra like “all is happening for a higher meaning, all is part of a needed transformation into a healthier and more satisfying life.”

On New Year’s Eve. still before the actual Solar Eclipse, Mars leaves tentative Pisces for action oriented Aries where it will stay until February 14.

This Mars in fiery Aries combined with Jupiter in fiery Sagittarius, can provide the motivation, stimulation, inspiration, and confidence to move forward in a positive way.

I will put out a video about this Eclipse Season within a day or 2. Stay tuned.

Changing Winds of Mercury Retrograde, Sun in Scorpio and Astrology Forecast October 20-26

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 19, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have passed through the first of two eclipses this Autumn Eclipse Season.     Intensity has dissipated for now, but the greatest intensity of this Autumn Eclipse Season is still on the way.

Leading up to the first eclipse, there was a building of intensity issues with the economy and in the Middle East.

In the USA there was a government shutdown and conflicts and fears triggered concerning the raising of the debt ceiling.    Our country is in deep trouble politically and financially, yet just before the eclipse an agreement was made to open the government back up again and to raise the debt ceiling.

Of course everyone knows that this agreement was no real agreement on anything of substance. It was only a temporary reprieve until the country and its “leaders” have to get down into the real issues that need resolution.    There is a wide disparity between the democrats and republicans as to how they each envision what it takes to build a healthy economy.

We are in for great turmoil and economic down slide before too long.  Important issues cannot be put off much longer.  We will likely be dealing with graver economic troubles as we get further into the Autumn Eclipse Season.    Mercury is going Retrograde in Scorpio this Monday the 21st; then Uranus exactly squares Pluto on November 1; then there is a most powerful Hybrid Total Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on November 3.    And finishing things off, Comet Ison will likely be affecting us in Late November and early December.

Besides the economy, the Middle East also is still a focal point concerning transformation into the Age of Aquarius.    It is true that a temporary resolution was found for Syria that avoided a bombing of the country, and true the USA and Iran are showing signs they want to work things out between them.  But a war still rages in Syria, and animosities in the Middle East are still strong.  Israel is not happy with the agreements; Egypt is still very volatile; Saudi Arabia is also not happy with the agreements; and Al Queda is a very real threat still.

I expect both economic and Middle East issues to resurface this autumn, with a potential for crisis.  No matter what does or does not happen this autumn, the next 9 months or so, with the focal point being April 2014, we can expect many challenges, powerful world events, awakenings and breakthroughs in all our lives.

This coming week brings us Mercury going Retrograde and the Sun moving into Scorpio.  The changing winds this week are shape shifting our minds and reality into deeper and darker shades.

Mercury goes Retrograde in Scorpio this Monday October 21 at 6:29 AM EDT.  It will stay in Retrograde until November 10.  During this time period our minds will change how we perceive our lives and reality.  Just as we think we know what we are seeing and what directions we are going in, there may be a pull to pause and rethink.

It is best to navigate Mercury Retrograde by letting go of the need to “figure it out”.    Take more time to reflect or meditate, to use your imagination, to be more intuitive, to go deeper into your mind or soul, and to allow process to work its way through your life.

Trying to hard to come up with a bottom line answer may be elusive at times, so trust letting life unfold before making any ultimate decisions on important matters.  This shifting of the mental tides is why it is usually best to wait till Mercury goes back direct before making big decisions or signing important contracts. You may believe you are fine to go ahead with something important, but it is best, if at all positive, to let the process of Mercury Retrograde unfold and pass through.

Sometimes you have no choice but to decide or act on a given issue during  Mercury Retrograde, in which case do not worry about taking the wrong action, as the timing has been out of your control and hence all can be considered “meant to be”.

People from the past also often come back to us during Mercury Retrograde, either in the flesh or in dreams or waking memory.  Their “return” signifies issues that are currently swirling in our lives that need reminders of past patterns that can be linked to the current issues.

Sometimes Mercury Retrograde time periods feel like being dropped into a Twilight Zone in our minds, a shadowy journey through ghosts of the past meeting us in our present situations.

So if you are not holding on too tightly to anything in your mind, that is helpful during Mercury Retrograde. But keep in mind that this is not a time period of changing how you act.   If you have decided, for instance, to move out of your current home or change jobs, DO NOT during Mercury Retrograde make up your mind for certain to change course and instead stay in your job or home.  And do not act on it.

Instead let the whole retrograde time period play out and even wait a week or so afterward before finally deciding or acting out.   The retrograde period may be meant to have you question your direction in life, but not NECESSARILY to actually change directions.

So it is important to not impulsively do anything for awhile.    Let things play out as the winds may be shifting more than once over the next few weeks.

On Wednesday October 23 at 2:10 AM EDT the Sun moves into intense and passionate Scorpio.    The energies are shifting from light and balanced to focused and intense.

People will begin to want to engage on deeper issues, no longer able to stay away from what has previously been swept under the rug.    If you have held back your opinion or your needs, it will be easier for someone to push your buttons and get you aroused or upset.

Speaking of aroused, as we get more “real”and pulled to “get down”during Sun in Scorpio time, we also may feel more stirrings for sexual encounters.    It will be more difficult to stay away from your instincts and passions.

In fact trusting your core instincts is important during Scorpio times.   All of these Scorpio issues will begin to surface after the Sun moves into Scorpio this Wednesday October 23, but will be so much more powerful and explosive at and after the Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on November 3.  If you are able to hold back the tide of powerful emotions before then, it will be most difficult to damn up those emotions then.

A hardcore Scorpio lesson is to not wait too long before expressing what bothers you.   Use a safety valve to let out some of those emotions from time to time, as bottling them up creates monstrous emotions that can be quite “ugly” when unleashed later.   Don’t stew in rage or jealousy  or shame too long.   Express and release before the emotions get too toxic from repression.  Bottling them up also can cause physical and emotional problems.

In the greater world expect leaders and nations to be more real with one another.   Civil diplomacy will be greatly challenged.  Harsher words will be spoken.  As we get closer and closer to the Total Solar Eclipse, intensity will greatly increase again, even greater than before the Lunar Eclipse of last week.

In your personal healing it will be a good time coming up, as Scorpio energies intensify, to face your inner shadows, express and release that which is ready to go.  Do not hold onto patterns of thought or behavior that keep you trapped.    I know it can be difficult to release even the most toxic patterns or people from your life. They feel secure in their familiarity, even if they are destructive to your heart, mind and soul.

You will get great assistance over the next month or so to “look these patterns in the eye” and then release and heal.  And then you can be liberated and ready to move on.

See you next week,

Leo
