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.

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.

Here is new video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mod-plRHdVk&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR2ZOOyuRdvCzvjM_Y3GKbIGteOz1YdPDxTWVYKJS9iQSQiNhtDwxcoSus8

Down to New Reality and Astrology Forecast September 2-8.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we come to the end of Summer Eclipse Season 2018.  So energetically there is less force and power pushing us to transform and change. 

Yet there will be more in the way of important events to follow, because what has been “shaken up”, “broken  down” and “broken through” during transformational Eclipse Season, (as also Mars and Mercury were Retrograde), is now being collected, put together and being decided.

Especially since Mars went Direct, the movement now is toward action and manifestation.

And that means events, that are the natural result of the recent transformation that has brought us all into this new era or chapter of our lives, are ready to unfold.

These important events will begin to define this new chapter.

In the greater world, there is so much that is simmering on the edge of the cliff of big change.

The Middle East is so on the edge of jumping off into major conflict.   Russia, Iran, Hamas, Iraq, and Syria are joining together. The USA, Israel, and Saudi Arabia are running counter to those countries.  Something is close to breaking open. Many other countries will be choosing sides as a result.

North Korea and the USA are breaking apart from their Summit’s agreements. China, Japan, and South Korea are greatly affected by th.

China is in a trade war with the USA, who is also in a trade war with many of its allies. The world’s stock markets and economies are dependent on world trade.

There is a serious culture war going on in the USA, and that culture war is separating families, just like happened in the Civil War in the USA

The Mueller investigation is now picking up steam and appears headed for eventual impeachment proceedings.

All of these issues are looking down from that cliff’s edge.

And when it all breaks open, which is a big part of this new era, our world will change and transform in ways that facilitate the consciousness for the Age of Aquarius.

Many who read this have already begun transforming their consciousness and lives in ways that align with this New Age.

And many others will wake up and join the wave of change as our world transforms.

But of course others will get more dug in to the consciousness and ways of the old world paradigm.

That resistance to the new world will cause much turmoil and distress to our world, but it actually is part of the natural process of transformation.

In your own life, when you have been motivated to transform your life through ending of relationships, or jobs, or whatever felt secure; you know you had to move through your own resistance to that change.

And this is a changing of Ages, an enormous earth shaking event for our human family.

Of course there is resistance, especially from those who have known privilege in the old world.  But like it or not, the new age is inevitable.  We can go kicking and screaming or we can instead allow the grace of the Universe to take us forward.

Death of the old is usually feared, and birth of the new can feel so filled with chaos and fear of the unknown.

But the new can also be filled with such feelings of liberation, hope, and joy.   It can bring a clean slate, one that can be filled with new intention and purpose.

Just after we experienced Mercury and Mars going Direct at the end of Eclipse Season, two iconic figures of our collective past died: John McCain and Aretha Franklin.

Death can bring feelings of love and affection for what or who has passed.  The old age and paradigm were not all bad. For most they contained many great memories and many people with whom we shared love.

This week we move through the 4th and last quarter of the Moon, which begins with the Moon in Gemini Sunday September 2.

This last quarter of the lunar cycle, which shows our Moon slowly losing its light, which people all over the globe will experience together, effectively brings an end to Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

In the middle of this light dimming week, Saturn changes direction from Retrograde to Direct on September 6.

Saturn, the symbolic gravity of the hand of time, tells us as it moves direct that there is no running away from time.  And the clock, as Saturn goes Direct, is starting up again, another sign of forward movement for our collective and personal lives.

Then three days later, on September 9 at 2:01 PM EDT, there is the New Moon in Virgo that symbolically begins in reality our new chapter.

It is time to know the changes are real, not just academic or conceptual.

Virgo makes things real, though sometimes that reality is just seeing the glass as half empty instead of half full.

So it will be important now to discern if your attitude is reflective of a need to come down to reality to face the truth, or instead is it a heavy dose of pessimism?

Nevertheless, it is time at this New Moon in Virgo to ground, simplify, and humbly move forward toward manifesting what has only previously been imagined.

For some it will be a time to fix what has been broken, mend what has been torn apart,  and heal what has been suffered.

On a mundane level, many people after the Virgo New Moon go to doctors or dentists or mechanics, etc.

Others feel a need to get down to work and to put more order into their lives.

Virgo time also can bring some people to more worry and stressful self criticism. If the criticism moves you to make needed changes that is good. But if that criticism is not constructive, and instead stresses you to the point of self hatred and/or depression or passivity, it is not right.

It is also end of summer in the northern hemisphere, as Autumn Equinox is only a couple weeks away.  So the Virgo New Moon represents another ending, but also a transition month into the beauty and grace of Autumn.

There are so many temptations in life now that tend to take us away from what is natural. Our devices, our tightly scheduled lives, our sitting down inside our homes and places of work all tend to keep us from what is natural and from our own nature.

Astrology is an extension of nature, a reading of the natural cycles and energies of life.

It can help us to be more a part of what is natural, but it also takes an effort to cross the threshold out of our self contained bubbles of existence, and into the “out of our control” movement of natural forces both inside and outside ourselves. The effort is worth it.

Till next week,

Leo

Mars Direct, Taking Action, and Astrology Forecast August 26- September 1

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 25, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Energy shift again this week, as there is a Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th, then Mars goes Direct on the 27th.

Last week Mercury went Direct after a rather difficult Retrograde time period that coincided with 2 of the Eclipses this Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

After Mercury goes Direct, mental fogs begin to lift as issues we were previously questioning begin to clear up.

And out in the world it happened almost in a textbook astrological fashion.

A few days after Mercury went Direct last week, the jury finally ended deliberation and found Trump’s campaign manager Manafort guilty on 8 felony counts ; his ex lawyer Cohen admitted guilt and implicated Trump; and Molly Tibbets who was lost for weeks was finally found dead in an Iowa cornfield and her killer was apprehended.

In your own life, did any issues clear up last week for you too?  If not this week it will likely happen soon, as in some cases it takes up to 10 days or so after Mercury is back Direct before clarity and direction are found. Mercury went Direct on the 18th/19th of August.

Adding to the feeling of direct motion this week is the fact that Mars goes Direct on the 27th.

Mars is desire, will, assertion, force, and action.  When Mars is Retrograde, deep in our souls we are deciding what we truly want and/or what action we will take or direction we choose to move toward.

After the 27th you will begin to know more clearly what you want.  Give it up to 10 days or so before you are entirely clear.  Taking action will begin to come more easily too, as will the courage to do what is needed or wanted.

In the greater world, people or countries that have held back in any way will begin to be more decisive and more ready to take action.

But the “corner will not be turned” out of the old chapter and into a new chapter until “hand of time” Saturn goes Direct on September 6.

Then 3 days later there is a New Moon in Virgo on the 9th.   The New Chapter is ‘”earthed” in reality after that.

But coming back to this week, Sunday the 26th is a Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces at 7:56 AM EDT.

This is usually a very gentle full moon. But a Venus square Pluto aspect that day will likely bring more intensity than usual. And of course a direction-changing forceful Mars will also be strong in our energy fields for a few days.

The Full Moon has the Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces.

Virgo is order and efficiency, simplicity and discernment, reality in the material world, and needs for purity and perfection on the physical plane of existence. It sees what is wrong or flawed and seeks to correct or fix it.

Pisces is other-worldly, dreamy and idealistic, sensitive and unconditional, flowing, feeling, and connected to the worlds of consciousness and the world of dreams, metaphors and symbols.

They both can be selfless and doing for others or a cause bigger than themselves.

So at this Full Moon in Pisces, put your ego away and surrender to the forces of nature and the Universe.

Find a balance between outer world reality (Virgo) and inner dimensions of consciousness (Pisces).  Do your best to combine body (Virgo) and soul (Pisces). Though many religions try to separate them, making the body an enemy and the soul heavenly, in actuality they belong together all the time: Soul giving energy, consciousness, and purpose to our sacred vessel bodies.

Venus square Pluto that same day could bring some relationship challenges, meant to help us transform old patterns that no longer work in the relationship.

Then on Monday the 27th, Mars goes Direct and time to begin to move forward.

Last week the Mueller investigation showed us it has some claws now, and Donald Trump is in trouble.

As the heat gets more turned up, he will likely try to distract through making other issues more important, so watch for world conflicts, especially with Syria and Iran.  China, and North Korea also bear watching.

In October/November Trump’s natal Mars in Leo is triggered by Jupiter in Scorpio and transiting Mars in Aquarius.  That is when he will be fighting for his life and perhaps turning up the heat on world conflicts too.

The economy could also be challenged this Autumn and Winter, as transiting Saturn opposes the USA natal Venus and Jupiter, signifying gravity affecting USA sense of security, well being, and positive feelings.

For Donald Trump 2019 and 2020 will be most challenging,as Pluto will oppose Trump’s natal Venus in Cancer and Saturn in Cancer.  Security, safety, and well being will be in conflict for him. This is when impeachment will likely be front and center for him.

It is obvious to most now, I believe, that the world as we have known it is leaving us.

All is happening for a reason, as we are moving out of an old Age and moving into a New Age of Aquarius.

Feelings of doom and gloom need to be replaced by a knowing that “we the people” are now responsible for rebuilding our country and world.

And the foundation for that world is formed with our higher values and principles. Many will be in desperation and survival to the extent that they will not care about these values.

But when one sees the bigger picture of world transformation, one can divorce oneself from desperate fear, hatred of enemies, and panic.

Trump is meant to be in this position in our world now.   And he will likely not go down as easily as Nixon did.  The comparisons between those eras and Presidents is remarkable, so similar.

The job was not finished back in the ’60s and ’70s.

Now the young people of this country can be mentored by the elders who went through the Nixon years, as long as those elders stay aware that the world is being left to future generations who must shape this new revolution and evolution with their signature, not ours.

Quit complaining about Trump and the people who follow him.  You are playing into his need for attention and drama and his narcissism.  We are adding to the division of cultures in our country and world. There is nothing to fight against. There is plenty to fight for.

We can concentrate on keeping our higher values and principles, being aligned with the Universe and our Souls, keeping spiritual and humanitarian perspectives, and fighting to be heard and fighting for what we believe in.

There is no going back to “normal” anymore.  We are in a New Era on the way to the Age of Aquarius. Let’s make the best of it!

Till next week,

Leo

Navigating Eclipses and Retrogrades and Astrology Forecast July 29- August 5

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 28, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we passed through the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon last week, we entered the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12.

This has been for many people a very difficult last few weeks.  Besides the two eclipses, we have also experienced Mars and Mercury both going Retrograde.

This is a time of inner reflection, of dealing with inner demons and old patterns and stories that are needing to be addressed, resolved, and/or released.

It has been, and continues to be, a ripe time to revisit these old stories, and in the process to find breakthroughs to new ways of seeing those old patterns or stories.

And those breakthroughs can show us to positive transformation for the betterment of our souls and lives.

Nevertheless, being brought back to old stories can seduce us into making decisions or moves that are not appropriate to the current situation.

It is best, in most cases, to hold back from making big decisions or starting new ventures.  It is not the time to act, but instead a time to internally work through the issues.

Many have, through the intensity of these eclipses, experienced these big breakthroughs; but it is more than just eclipses in themselves that have been triggering these transformational times.

The strength of Pluto and Uranus within the last two eclipse formations has provided more power of transformation and awakenings.

So even through the intense difficulties many have experienced these last few week,  in the bigger picture it is all part of deep transformation and change necessary for our growth and evolution.

The Age of Aquarius is calling us all to transform our consciousness, beliefs, and ways in order to be aligned with this New Age.

The only “enemy” in this process is our fear. It is natural to have fear, but it is not good to give in to fear as our master.

Fear takes many forms, but at the core fear takes over when we no longer trust we live in a meaningful Universe that brings us situations that here for a reason.

Do we ultimately follow Love and Truth or Fear?

It is true that even the most spiritual of us have dark nights of the soul when we feel “spirit” has abandoned us or we have abandoned “spirit”.

But in time we have awakenings or “rebirths” that bring us back on our spiritual paths.

It is so easy now to fall victim to fear, as our world seems to be falling apart from our better values.

This falling apart, which will get more intense, is part of the process of transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

I know many of you have experienced a falling apart of your personal lives before, and know that was just part of the process of transformation into a life more aligned with who you really are and are growing into.

And our world and country are going through that now. The big split between cultures in America, which resembles the Civil War in essence, is part of this transformational process that will ultimately make us more whole in alignment with a New Age.

And ending the notion of being superior to other cultures or countries is part of that transformation, as there is no room for superpower countries in the Age of Aquarius..

Empires began at the beginning of the Age of Pisces, in the form of the Roman Empire.  Now for the Age of Aquarius, we are letting go of the world controlling Empires.

Diversity within Unity requires the world to transform into one of more equality between nations and cultures.

The USA Empire of its Military/Economic Complex is dissolving and will hopefully in the process come back to its better values and principles.

And it is thus easy to see how the Trump influence is actually helping the process of the Empire’s downfall. Yes there will still be mammoth attempts to keep the power going, and some of that will likely be quite oppressive to our liberties.

And during this process of American transformation, the impeachment of President Trump is intensifying and becoming more serious.  What Trump does to distract this process is of great concern.

But keep the faith that in the bigger picture all is aligned with the cycles of the Universe..

In the greater world the Middle East is on the verge of igniting into greater conflict.  Gaza was erupting last week, Syria was intensifying, and Iran is now squarely in the cross-hairs of USA and Israel sights.

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius fell right on Israel’s natal Moon in Leo.  Mars was in opposition to that Natal Moon. The signs point to that Lunar Eclipse as an important turning point for Israel.

And transformation of Israel, Palestine and the greater Middle East is important to the transformation of our world into the Age of Aquarius.

Many of the first known civilizations and world wide religions were birthed in the Middle East.  So it is understood why that area of the world is needing of transformation out of old paradigms that run much of the world. The way Israel oppresses the Palestinians is so common to the old age.  And of course Israel was often at the other end of these abuses of power.

As we stated earlier, we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12. And Mars and Mercury are still retrograde.

Now we await the third and last eclipse of Summer Eclipse Season 2018:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11.

Though at that time Mercury will still be retrograde until August 18/19 and Mars will still be retrograde until August 27, there still will be much push for new beginnings at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in fiery Leo.

The big dominating egos on the world stage will be emerging.  Matches will tend to be lit by them, creating world conflict.

In our personal lives however, it is more likely that this Leo Solar Eclipse will ignite creative passions and open hearts.

It will signify a time of new starts and action taken in this New Chapter of your life.

Of course the actual actions may wait in many instances until Mercury and Mars have settled into their Direct positions.

So there is still much time now to go within your psyche and soul, to find out what you really want (Mars) and what you really think (Mercury).

And that Mars in Retrograde will be triggered this week as it squares Uranus, which is slowing down to go Direct next week.  That means there may be a turning point in your quest to know what you want and where you want to go.  But do your best not to run with it, as Mars will still be Retrograde.

Keep in mind during all the intensity and sometime confusion this Eclipse Season, that your soul is searching for its heart’s desires and your mind’s right thinking to help lead the way forward for your life.

That is being worked out now, sometimes unbeknownst to you at a deep level.  But  know that it is and patiently wait till those planets go Direct and the Eclipse Season ends.

After that much will settle in, and you will be in a better position to know what you truly want ( aligned with your higher self) and where you are going.

Till next week,

Leo

Eclipse Season, Mars Retrograde and Astrology Forecast June 24-30

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on June 23, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week as we move into Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

On Thursday June 28 there is a Full Moon in Capricorn closely conjunct Saturn at 12:53 AM EDT.

The first actual eclipse (first of 3 this season) will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12.  It will be very closely in opposition to Pluto.

The June 28 Full Moon in Capricorn conjunct Saturn opens up Eclipse Season with a strong pull to having limits, strong definition, strict rules, and firm boundaries.

Since in this Full Moon, the Sun is in Cancer directly opposite the Moon conjunct Saturn, we can expect Cancer permissiveness, unconditional attitudes, empathy, and openness to be a counter force to the Moon/Saturn strictness.

This will be a theme to reckon with during Eclipse Season- both personally and globally. Already we can see how nations are wrestling with open or closed boundaries for immigrants. This is especially so in America and Europe.

And in other places like Ukraine and East Asia, there are boundary disputes for who claims what land for their country.  And in North and South Korea, there is hope by many for the boundary between them to be erased.

These issues will be “more in our faces” during this Eclipse Season, starting this week.

In personal lives you may be pushed to decide even more than usual, when to “put your foot down” to stop others or to protect yourself or to be clear what you take and what you will not take from others.  Your boundaries will be pushed by others.

Politically speaking, liberal and conservative viewpoints will be showing up clearly this week and during Eclipse Season. Capricorn/Saturn is symbolically conservative and Cancer is more symbolically liberal. That does not mean all Cancers are liberal and all Capricorns are conservative.

Interestingly, in the USA natal chart from July 4 1776, the USA has its Sun in Cancer in conflicting square to its Saturn in Libra. This is representative of the constant war between liberal and conservative viewpoints in America. Squares tend to show that each side of the square is strongly opposed without much empathy for the other position.

This is so true of American politics, most especially now, as there is an obvious culture war going on.

And in this Summer Eclipse Season, beginning this week, we will experience that battle building in intensity. Calls for impeachment will get stronger.

Also this week, besides the Eclipse Season initiation with the Full Moon in Capricorn on the 28th,  there is the changing of direction of Mars from Direct to Retrograde.

Mars goes Retrograde approximately every two years for around 2 months each time.  This Mars Retrograde period will last from June 26 to August 27- at which time it will go back Direct.

In personal lives there will be a tendency with Mars Retrograde to give pause so one can better know what one wants and desires.  Mars Retrograde also shows us the condition of our personal will and to the issue of standing up for ourselves, and what we believe in.

It will also bring up issues of being true to our authentic Self or of compromising that truth in order to accommodate what others want from us.

Mars Retrograde also brings up a review of anger issues and competitive instincts.  It brings out alpha personality more strongly too, as well as issues of power and force.

Mars Retrograde will also bring up questions of what direction we want to move toward, and it may very well have us question the direction we have previously chosen.

On the global scene, there will be a questioning of issues of conflict or war. Previous stances of peace may be questioned. Previous stances of war may be questioned.

As this Mars Retrograde period will coincide with Eclipse Season, issues with North Korea and most especially the Middle East will be in the spotlight and heating up.

Of course we all know this is a critical time for questioning the state of our country and world.  Old paradigms and institutions, old programmed beliefs and ways of being are breaking down in order to allow new brighter, more loving, truth telling energies to pour into our consciousness and lives.

Eclipse Seasons always bring both breakdowns and breakthroughs. The only thing assured is that status quo familiarity is not safe during Eclipse Seasons.

Some parts of your life, especially with Mars Retrograde added to this Eclipse Season, will be questioned and/or challenged.

If you have planets closely connected to the planetary positions of the Eclipses, you will be more affected than others.

Keep in mind and heart the knowledge that all these shakeups or changes are aligned with your deeper soul, nature, and the Universe. Old beliefs, patterns, people, etc. who do not fit with your personal evolution and transformation are the ones that are threatened.

All is happening meaningfully and with the true needs of your soul.  Sometimes we get too set in our ways, and these Eclipses assist us in moving out of our being stuck, trapped, bored, clingy, and stopped from growing.

Often we have choice to not move with where the winds are blowing us to go, but we then are stunted in our growing and transforming, and something in our souls and spirits starts to die.

Also this week, besides the Full Moon in Capricorn and Mars going Retrograde, we also encounter Mercury moving out of Cancer and into Leo on June 28/29.

Mercury is our mind, our thinking, and our ability to communicate. When in Cancer feeling and thinking tend to merge and a more holistic perception and viewpoint emerge in our minds and ways of communicating.

And when Mercury is in Leo, there is more “light” in our thinking, and the mind tends to be creative and inspired. We also communicate more creatively and spontaneously.

Mercury will stay in Leo much longer than usual, until August 29, much more than its usual one month in a sign.

So begin the ride of Eclipse Season this week, even though the greatest intensity will likely not occur till closer to the first actual Eclipse on July 12.  

We will of course get deeper into the Eclipses as the Season continues. You can get some perspective on this Eclipse Season with the video I made earlier this month. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QkSNDn0QCg&feature=youtu.be

Till next week,

Leo
