Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast February 16-22.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on February 16, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are entering a more inward phase of our Soul’s journey this week.

The 4th quarter of the lunar cycle begins in Scorpio today,  February 15,  at 5:17 PM EST.  We stay in this darkening of the Moon until February 23 at the New Moon in Pisces.

The theme of inward journeying continues with Mercury going Retrograde on Sunday the 16th.

As usual, Mercury Retrograde resets our mental functioning.  Logical, analytical thinking is more apt to hit dead ends of “glass half empty” skepticism.

This Mercury Retrograde resetting does often get us to question what has previously been chosen or decided.  That questioning should not be taken totally seriously until Mercury has gone back Direct for several days.

Questioning can be helpful because during that process we may be more moved to cross our ‘t’s and dot our ‘i’s. And to healthily doubt.  Just remember this is Mercury Retrograde time, and finding our Truth is important; but we cannot find it by left brain logic alone.

It is important during the Retrograde time to reintegrate our other tools to finding Truth: Intuition; reading signs from the Universe; dream interpreting; talking with others; etc.

Finding Truth often is about letting the process unfold, knowing in due time all is revealed.  Mercury goes back Direct again on March 10, the same day as the next full moon, the Virgo Full Moon.

During the Mercury Retro period February 16- March 10, we likely encounter people from our past coming back to us.  This may happen in dreams, waking memories, or “in the flesh” meetings.   These encounters may help us understand something or someone in our current life, or give us perspective and insight into our Soul’s needs or intentions.

Adding to the inward turn of consciousness, the Sun goes into Pisces this Tuesday the 18th.

As the Sun moves out of Aquarius and into Pisces, we feel the shift into pure consciousness, beyond mere logical thought.

When one meditates deeply, the mind lets go of its chatter, and we experience “Being”.  There is no need to figure it out or fix it or accomplish anything.

So many of us have felt we are only of value when we are doing, accomplishing, getting things done, etc.

Being comfortable just “being” is a prerequisite for feeling nurtured, safe, and cared for.

We become more vulnerable, yet empowered at the same time.  Some people have not felt the comfort of just “Being” since they were a baby or very young child.

So the Sun being in Pisces, starting on the 18th, has the “intention” of bringing us more into our souls. The water signs are all about soul, most especially Pisces. Of the three water signs:  Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces; Pisces is arguably more about inner-directed Soul travel than the others. This is partly a result of Pisces being less interested in the material world than the other two.

At its best it has us travelling in alternative dimensions, in pure soul travel.

So this week we are in a darkening of the Moon, Mercury Retrograde, and Sun in inner directed Pisces.

It is not a time for pushing forward, for pushing an agenda, for serious mental work.

It is time to process, to feel, to dream, to imagine, to be in your heart and soul, to care, to empathize, to “Be”.

This inward journeying is most important until March 19 at the Spring Equinox in Aries, or even more so at the Aries New Moon on March 24.  And then on April 4 is the powerful Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, which will thrust us forward into action forward.

There is much to process now, after all the shifts, energies, and important events in our personal lives and world since the beginning of 2020 and the Eclipse Season then.

Trump went through Impeachment process; Iran and USA went to the brink of war; Democrat presidential debates and primaries; warnings of potential war in Middle East; Coronavirus fears; and stock market volatility.

It has gotten pretty obvious that our world as it has been in the old Paradigm, is on the verge of falling apart.  There will be great attempts to put band-aids on serious potential breakdowns, especially with the stock market and economy.

Reason for this is because if stock market and economy go down, you can count on current administration not being re-elected.  Economy can be somewhat manipulated to keep afloat with “money being printed” so to speak.

But Nature, and the planets and Astrology are part of that Nature, wins out in the end.

We have learned how to put death “on hold” with machines that keep us technically alive on life support systems.  But death cannot be denied for long.

And the Age of Pisces Old Paradigm is on life support systems now.  But there is a New Paradigm Age of Aquarius with Love and Truth leading the way.

The dark of Death and light of Birth are always moving through our reality here on Earth.  And that duality is especially powerful during these current times, as we are in transition between two Ages, each of 2,160 years.

With that Big Picture as our guide, we know that our trying to keep everything under our  ego’s control is a joke.  Our Higher Soul Self is connected to the Universe and from there we co-create Reality within the laws and destinies of that Universe.

This week we begin almost 6 weeks of pause for inner reflection.  This inner reflection time period will help us all to get back to our Soul Centers.

The challenge of Mercury Retrograde is allowing greater Mind to do its magic outside of our ego’s need to control the thinking process.

Trust the process and all will work out as it needs to-

Till next week,

Leo

Powerful Change is Here Now and Astrology Forecast January 25-February 1

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on January 25, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Intensity has remained high since the first eclipse on Christmas evening .this winter season 2019/2020. That was a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn

Then around the time of the second and last eclipse on January 10, intensity rose quite powerfully.   The impeachment process was taking over much of USA collective consciousness.  And the USA and Iran nearly went to war.

Now with the Eclipse Season passing into our collective rear view window, we are faced to deal with what is left after the eclipse storms.

There is growing movement to transform and evolve, to be authentic, conscious, empathetic, in our Higher Selves or Soul Selves.

And the need for that evolution in consciousness, as we are in transition between a  Pisces and Aquarian Age Paradigm, is enormous.

People are getting more and more connected now, connected and aligned.  But the Fear script is getting pushed into our awareness.  “What if…., what if…….what if………?” Fear based consciousness keeps us wallowing in that fear; getting more obsessive in our minds and actions; and developing sterner judgments of ourselves and others.

Your Higher Self looks at the Big Picture for meaning for whatever is banging around down here on Earth.  You and I each have a place and purpose to fulfill at this important time in ourstory.

The Impeachment process is bringing out all the demons in our political system; Iran is still in the cross-hairs of Israel and the USA. They are waiting for the right time to hurt Iran badly; and                  the impeachment process is in large measure political warfare now. (though of course Trump is clueless of what our community truly needs.)  He is obsessed with winning in November in order to feed his narcissist appetite.

Somewhere along the line Pandora’s Box loses its lid, and chaotic anarchy is the result. That will bring martial law to dominate and control the people.  And now the possibility of biological sickness spreading across the Earth has gotten stronger.

We need some miracles to save us from such devastation, and that will come in the form of a new USA president elected this November.

I ‘m not saying she needs to be a savior; but she/he will need to bring guidance, direction, sanity, and remind us of our deep set values. And she will let us know she follows Truth and Love as her guiding lights.

And that we are capable of regardless of who is president.

Most of the important planetary aspects coming up are connected to the USA chart’s Pluto and Pluto Return, happening now through 2023.

That Pluto in Capricorn in the USA second house is the Military Industrial Complex that dominates our world.

And as Pluto returns to the exact same position it was in on July 4 1776; we the people need to take more responsibility for what we have done to our Earth, and what we done to one another.

That does not require self harm in order to make things better. It requires empathy and compassion for ourselves and others, as well as a commitment to our Earth home and each other.

And besides the Pluto Return, both Saturn and Jupiter will conjunct that same USA natal planet of Pluto this year.

The security of the Empire Complex will be challenged, so it can transform into what is best for “we the people”(ll over the world).

Trump is a test for us. He should help us all remember that in our country’s revolution we made vow to eliminate Kings or Queens from our lives. That also means dictators or presidents who abuse power in order to keep their power.  King George of England during the revolution needs to rest in peace now.

And through all the darkness i our world and country now, the light of a New Age burns brightly underneath the surface, waiting for enough blocks or impediments to be released, in order to make room for the light, love, and truth of the Age of Aquarius.

This week we continue on our way up the waxing moon, as it travels toward a Full Moon in Leo on the 8th of February.

Aquarius New Moon from January 24 keeps Aquarius themes alive.

So the energies of Aquarius grow stronger this week.  Use it for more inventive “outside the box” thinking; for liberating yourself  from old stuck ego stories.  Use it to feel better about being a unique individualized person, one who joins the healthy community of Age of Aquarius members. They are all around, waiting for when they are needed to show themselves.

This week on Sunday the 26th of January, Venus in Pisces squares Mars in Sagittarius, pitting male in conflict with female.  Venus in Pisces seeks  to love and be loved, unconditionally.  Mars in Sagittarius seeks higher meaning and high adventures and uplifting inspiration.

Though Pisces is flowing and gentle, while Mars is raising a a fiery flag of knowing and intuiting; they can get long quite well as they are both idealistic dreamers for a better day.

Neptune energies are stronger than usual in the beginning of the week as both Venus and Mars make aspect to Neptune.

Neptune can also be very idealistic and dreams of better days coming.

All in all this week, we move toward more hope. We also move, with the Uranus and Aquarius aspects this week,  toward “people power” with revolutionary ideas getting stronger and stronger.

We can all get more outside the boxes of ego stories that keep us stuck and miserable. Now is a time to do just that. Break away and Be your Self.

Keep ego thinking to a minimum.

You can feel now with the Aquarius New Moon, the energetic push toward a New Age of Aquarius, toward breaking up the need to have all ducks in a row with all our life in stuck security control. Liberation energies are especially strong right now, use them as you want.

Winter Solstice, Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn and Astrology Forecast December 22-28

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on December 21, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

I write this week’s forecast from a Hampton Inn just outside Tulsa Oklahoma on our way to Sedona.  The first few days were challenging with snow in upstate New York and snow blizzards in Ohio and Pennsylvania.  The last couple days have been more graceful and uneventful.  We should be in Sedona late on Sunday the 22nd.

Later today on Saturday the 21st at 11:19 PM EST there is Winter Solstice, a turn in the balance between yin and yang, dark and light.  Up till today the dark/yin was getting stronger and stronger; after today, light/yang begins to increase until Spring Equinox when they are equal, with light/yang continuing to get stronger every day.

As the days have been getting darker with the solar light dimming as it moved toward Winter Solstice, and with the lunar light dimming in the waning half of the lunar cycle; depressed feelings, fear  and negative thoughts have tried to have a stronger voice in our consciousness.

Yin connection with body and soul does not mean fear and negativity, but our culture which worships being “up” and “happy”, successful and “positive” too often conditions us to avoid the truth and wisdom of the body and soul, of the “Feminine”.   That results in fear being the substitute for natural and healthy Yin.

At this time of year with holidays showing love and deep connections, we are reminded of our common humanity, and that all of us get older and have difficult moments in life.  The Yin of our body and soul remind us of these common connections, of the big human family we all belong to, regardless of our differences.

After the 21st the light is showing at the end of the tunnel.  And on Thursday the 26th, the Moon gets ready to show some light after the New Moon in Capricorn at 12:13 AM EST.

All this time from the 21st through the 26th, it is a good time to meditate, to get in touch with the silence.  It is also a good time to reconnect with your soul’s wishes and to make clear intention for co-creation with the Universe.

This New Moon in Capricorn brings the Sun and Moon together in conjunction.  The solar cycle and lunar cycle join together at the New Moon in Capricorn, and the Solar Eclipse brings much more strength to the New Moon in Capricorn than the usual New Moon in Capricorn.

So the power of intention or resolution is stronger than usual. So also is one’s ability to plan to manifest, accomplish, build, organize, discipline, and make definite, to put an end to, and make commitment to.

Direction is more easy to find.  It is a good time to make real what was only an idea or dream.  But this new moon can also bring a time of disillusion, of the end of seeing life through rose colored glasses.

In the world this first of 2 eclipses will begin to bring down whatever has been in a bubble of fantasy.   The Stock Market and economy could be brought down to reality very soon now.  The reality of impeachment cannot be denied anymore.

More important than Trump’s presidency is the condition of the USA. It is being split in two, similar to when there was Civil War 1860-1865.

This is part of the process of transformation of our country and world, in transition between an Age of Pisces and an Age of Aquarius.

The Age of Pisces began with the birth of Christ in the midst of the Roman Empire. That Empire eventually broke down, and the birth of Christ became the Christian Church,  for better and worse.

Now the Roman Empire is the Military Industrial Complex of the USA and Western World, in the process of breaking down.  As consciousness expands and people evolve, the shape of spirituality and religion shifts, the importance of Christ consciousness evolves too.

Christ consciousness is now part of a Spiritual Renaissance for our world.   There is a return to spirit, to soul, to sacredness,  to deeper compassion, to connections with All, to love, to truth beyond the rigid rules or guilt of some religion.

Jupiter is conjunct the New Moon in Capricorn, adding more inspiration to one’s new ventures and projects.

Eclipse Season has just begun.  The second eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer on January 10, the same day liberating Uranus goes back Direct again.

Saturn and Pluto are opposite the Full Moon in Cancer and are exactly conjunct each other on January 12.

We will explain much more about this important Eclipse Season the next few weeks.

Till then,

Leo

Full Moon Begins Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast December 8-14

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 7, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The waxing moon reaches climax this week as it becomes a Full Moon in Gemini at 12:12 AM on December 12.

And unofficially, Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 is energizing and alive.

That Eclipse Season will be important as a major turning point for our world and personal lives.

There is no more straddling the fence of indecision; no more trying to be in two different worlds at the same time. It is time to choose or at least know one has to choose.

This Eclipse Season will contain many highlights: 2 eclipses; Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn; and Uranus shifting to Direct- out of Retrograde motion.

In the outer world we see a stock market in a big bubble ready to burst this winter; North Korea and China more intent on challenging the USA; Israel and Iran doing serious macho strutting with one another; and a USA impeachment process that is not headed for a peaceful solution.

In January, Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn at 22+ degrees of Capricorn will be closely opposing Trump’s natal Venus/Saturn conjunction in Cancer. His sense of stability and control will be seriously threatened. 

His natal Vertex, often a sign of “fated happenings” is at 22+ degrees of Capricorn, exactly conjunct the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12. This is a very difficult aspect for him.

This Saturn/Pluto conjunction is made even more potent as it is closely held inside the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon of Capricorn/Cancer at 20+ degrees of Capricorn on January 10.

Saturn and Pluto together are pretty serious. One (Saturn) is planet of time and gravity, while the other (Pluto) is the Guardian of the Underworld.  Together they are ruthless in destroying anything that is hanging around past its natural time of life.

This is a perfect time to eliminate the old ego stories that keep you stuck.  In some cases, it will be obvious that the old patterns need to go.  Remember that doing the same thing over and over again, looking for changes that will never come, is insanity.

And now Saturn/Pluto can help you to stop looking in the same places anymore for answers.  When you are committed to stop, new doors and windows will open, bringing in the fresh air of a new season for our lives.

I know it can feel daunting to enter new lands of possibility, and that the demon we know can be more appealing and less scary than strange situations we have never known.

But once in these new vistas of life, we let go into renewal and greater vitality.

And this week, as we begin to feel the breezes of the Eclipse Season that has its first eclipse on December 25/26, we are making ourselves be present and aware.

That consciousness will allow us to see and feel all the signs and symbols we need now, to keep us aligned and on track.

This current week begins in a bit of a misty fog in consciousness, as both the Sun and Venus make contact with Neptune on Sunday the 8th.

Wrestling with details and analytic mental processes is off the mark and will only bring confusion.  Best to surrender agenda with Neptune, just let go and surrender.

Mercury moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius on Monday the 9th, raising our mental vibration, being more open to inspiration and high-mindedness. It stays in Sagittarius until December 28.

Around the 9th, it is time to be in the aura of the approaching Full Moon in Gemini.  Before that exact full moon on the 12th, Venus makes exact conjunction with Saturn on the 11th.

Saturn conjunct Venus puts limits on the open heart’s natural give and take, and instead brings us more into “quid pro quo” negotiations to get you what you each want from each other.

The exact actual Full Moon in Gemini is on Thursday December 12 at 12:12 AM EST. (See all  the 12’s ?): 12/12 at 12:12 AM.   Twelve is a sacred number showing itself in the number of signs and houses of the zodiac and also the number of apostles of Jesus Christ.  It is considered more a sacred “male” number, while 13 is considered more a sacred female number.

For this new moon, we have the Sun in Sagittarius and the Moon directly opposed in Gemini at 19+ degrees.

This is usually a very animated time period, as people get more into communication. Conversations can be quite lively. Gemini provides the mental information and possibilities, while Sagittarius provides the conclusions, opinions and meaning.  Gemini is mostly left brain mental processing calculating and thinking, while Sagittarius is mostly intuitive “whole-making”.

With this Full Moon in Gemini, Neptune in Pisces is involved as it squares both the Sun and Moon.

Neptune may bring more confusion to the conversations at times, and at other times it will bring a deeper, more insightful and psychic approach to any issues.

Let the conversation take you and all will be fine.  Sometimes it is not the bottom line answers that matter the most. It is the connections between people that is most important.

Chiron goes Direct in Aries later on the 12th, building a bridge between your higher Self and your ego.

Then on Friday the 13th (one of my most favorite days), Mars in Scorpio trines Neptune while Venus conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn.

Mars in Scorpio trine Neptune keeps our actions connected to our soul, so that our inner values keep our desires in bounds.

Venus conjunct Pluto in Capricorn brings more insight and deeper connection to our relationships.  Superficial has little chance of getting our attention now, instead we become more aware of our needs for depth and closeness with others.

My partner Deborah and I leave our home for the last 16 years, as we travel to our new home in Sedona on December 16.

Some of the most soulful, thoughtful, kind and conscientious people live in Maine and New England.  They will always remain deeply in my heart.

Till next week,

Leo

Shifting Tides and Astrology Forecast November 17-23.

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting winds this week, with many notable planetary movements.

As the week begins, Mercury is still retrograde, and the Moon is in its darkening phase.

On Tuesday the 19th energies and people intensify, as Mars moves out of “together” and balanced Libra and into instinctual and powerful Scorpio.

Then on Wednesday the 20th, there is some mental relief as Mercury finally goes back Direct!

And the light begins to show itself through the cracks in our fears, as the Sun moves into expansive and uplifting Sagittarius.

The next week on the 26th, there is the light of inspiration pouring in with the New Moon in Sagittarius a day before other-worldly Neptune shifts back to Direct.

Around that time, the first breezes of a new Eclipse Season blow into our collective consciousness and our lives.

The actual first eclipse this “season” is on Christmas Day December 25, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.

As we have alerted everyone, this should be a very powerful and important Eclipse Season for personal and global life.

The changes internally and externally are to transform us to be more aligned with the energies and meaning of the new paradigm from the Age of Aquarius.

Impeachment events; an economy in the danger zone of a dream-world bubble;  war cries from the Middle East; and increased enemy making of China and Russia; our world is on the precipice of enormous transformational changes.

The old Paradigm is so obviously in decay. Its fuel is fear, greed, power abuses and separateness.

The old Paradigm is run with materialism as its guiding star, not truly believing that all the dots in the Universe are connected by higher meaning and love.

Eventually any who give up the notion that we can live in a world guided by the stars of Truth and Love, will go from skepticism to cynicism as time goes by.

And that cynicism breeds corruption, power abuses, greed, and hatreds, as the lights dim before totally going out.

And when grave life difficulties begin to take over, as they are now in the greater world and many personal lives, many people have breaking points into hopelessness and despair.

They stop believing in the god(s) they used to believe in, feel abandoned by them,  and fall into the trap of being a hateful and non-trusting self identified victim.

For many this is their “dark night of the soul”.  For others, hope, trust, and faith just permanently leave.

Our whole world is entering such a Soul and Spiritual challenge.

The old paradigm, governed by materialism, is in its death throes. As it dies, so do hopes for great wealth and privilege. And for many this ends up in cynicism, because the rewards for  playing by the old paradigm’s rules no longer bring the promised rewards.

People losing jobs or relationships can bring many to mental hopelessness.

This is when  transformation shows up.   Some believe in its promises and change their lives accordingly.  Others eventually give up as they cannot give up the old dreams of what was promised as a better life.

The new world promises deeper connections, greater authenticity, a meaningful life, a sense of purpose, Love, community, inner peace, real Truth, connection to soul and spirit,  self love, healing,  a knowing that All is connected on this sacred Earth that resides in this wondrous and magic filled Universe.

What is here now and coming soon will challenge our human family to evolve faster and further than it has previously in our current lifetime.

This week Mars goes into Scorpio on Tuesday the 19th.  This stokes our instinctual desire nature into more passion.   It motivates us to go deeper and see truth we may have previously avoided. It opens us to share our secrets or secret desires. It takes us off the fence of indecision, especially so after Mercury goes back Direct later this week.

Mars in Scorpio will also push some to give up peace efforts and instead to go full force.  This means more chance for war for those leaders still controlled by the old paradigm.

Mars stays in Scorpio until January 3 2020 when it goes into Sagittarius.

Mercury goes Direct on Wednesday November 20 at 2:12 PM EDT. There should be a sense of relief as issues begin to clarify and direction begins to show itself.  But full clarity may not appear for a week to 10 days after.

And on Friday November 22, the Sun moves out of the depths of Pluto-guided Scorpio and into the heights of Jupiter-guided Sagittarius.

Energies seek to rise upwards in your body too, into heart, throat, third eye. and crown chakras.

New inspiration seeks expression; answers appear where only questions used to be; higher meaning is sought; adventures become more attractive; intuition gets stronger; the glass of life  begins feeling more half full again.

Be careful, however, not to leap before you look.  Sometimes, after feeling kinda depressed, we can get carried away by renewed feelings of hope.

Remember that even though Mercury has gone back Direct, the Moon is in its last quarter phase getting darker and darker until the New Moon in Sagittarius on  November 26.

And the Sun is showing less light as it moves closer and closer to Winter Solstice on December 21, just 4 days before the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.

So the increasing darkness, even as the Sun goes into Sagittarius, should make us somewhat cautious still. At this time of year there is both a feeling of joy and upliftment (Sagittarius and holidays) and darkening feelings connected to Winter Solstice.

The coming eclipses and planetary movements promise important shifts of energy patterns, and a releasing of stuck and blocked energies.  Endings could be quite dramatic, even as the seeds of a soon to to be flying Phoenix are planted.

There may be a tarot Tower Card on the world’s horizon, bringing down structures that  represent the old world paradigm.

Till next week

Time of Intensity and Passion and Astrology Forecast October 20-26

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week shows signs of a decided downturn with a growing need to feel safe,  nurtured, at home, and peaceful.

The Moon in Cancer helps us to feel that way, especially so since that Moon in Cancer  shows us the beginning of the last quarter of this current lunar cycle, which effectively ends on October 27 at the New Moon in Scorpio.

This current cycle began at the New Moon in Libra on September 28, merely a week after Autumn Equinox, which is symbolic for a setting Sun in a darkening landscape.

And as we enter this 4th quarter of the waning, darkening Moon, we are energetically preparing ourselves for the Sun entering Scorpio on October 23, then waiting for the Moon to join that Sun in a New Moon in Scorpio on October 27 at 11:39 PM EDT

The sign Scorpio is “ruled” by Pluto, guardian of the underworld. So our experience deepens this week, opening doors into more intense feelings and emotions.

The Sun has been in Libra for the last month, and as such put us on a plateau of relative peace and contentment.

And some of you must be snickering at the phrase “peace and contentment” describing recent times. In contrast to what is coming, it was.

Since Saturn is right now widely conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, there is no escaping the feelings of sadness, grief, and/or fear for our world and our lives.

Those feelings will deepen even more starting this week, as we wait for a quite powerful  exact conjunction of Saturn and Pluto happening along with Winter Eclipse Season (2019/20 this coming December and January.

Our world is in turmoil now, and we are looking for signs of clarity and direction to light the path in front of us.

Impeachment inquiries are happening already, with more intense and dramatic moments ahead of us.

Remember it is the Military/Economic Empire that “rules the world” as major transformation to it is meant to happen.

So cracks in its foundation show themselves through difficulties with the economy, police, and military of the USA.

The Commander in Chief resides in his own little Walter Middy world, starring in his made up movie, where he is always right and heroic.

Unfortunately that “make believe” world clashes with the “real” and dangerous world all around us now.

Yet we know his presidency was meant to be, as we now see a new world developing that can give us hope.

That new world can take its first baby steps into the Age of Aquarius after the Presidential Election in November 2020.

In December 2020 Saturn makes exact conjunction with Jupiter at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, evidently symbolic of a New Age.

Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions bring us a 20 year cycle that is based on socio-cultural changes for that time period.

Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions can initiate extremely important time periods.

Every time there was a Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in the past, the USA president at the time died while still in office.

Check out Lincoln, FDR,  Kennedy, etc.

The “spell” broke in 1981 when Reagan was shot but lived through it. Jupiter/Saturn made conjunction in 1980/81.

Then Bush was president at the next Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Taurus in 2000/2001.  No death or almost death, but 9-11 happened during Bush’s first year in office.

So we can expect vitally important events after the next Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius on December 21, the day of the Winter Solstice.

So hang in there this approximate year before the Election and Jupiter/Saturn conjunction.

We need to clear up and clean out the old paradigm and its leaders.  If cleaning out that world and its leaders is not done with a sense of finality, we still remain, in our consciousness, in that old world. Fearing it or hating it keeps it alive.

It is what they represent that we are clearing out, so “we the people” can begin to take responsibility and stewardship of our world and lives.

The Age of Aquarius brings group consciousness to the forefront.  Kings, queens, dictators, emperors do not fit in. And the current USA president has man crushes on all the dictator/strong men of our world, like Putin.

He must be the reincarnation of King George, who was the ‘mentally touched” British king during the USA revolutionary war that paved the way for the new world of United States of America.

Maybe George is giving it another try.  He will lose again.

But more important is our return to our “better angel” values, and deep connecting with the values of the new paradigm of the Age of Aquarius.

“Skies” darken more this week for the old world energies and values. Let it go, especially inside your self.

The Scorpio New Moon on the 27th brings a coming out of more primal energies, and a letting go of Libra politeness and nicety.

This is good for sex and eating and bringing back previously suppressed passions.  But it is not so good at keeping the peace.  Scorpio does hold back sometimes, but when it opens back up can be ferocious.

This is usually a good time for processing deep seated concerns. If you keep it bottled up for too long, it hurts your body, and builds up more and more resentment.

Scorpio time is also a good time for purging most anything.  Keep in mind that some of these emotions may be filled with much venom. Jealousy, rage, betrayals, and other such emotions can be felt and expressed now.  Did I say sex can be great now too?

So this week brings us the beginning of the last quarter of the Moon’s phase on Monday the 21st.

Venus in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces that day also, which shows up as a woman in her sexual power, one who can also open into the many facets and faces of the Goddess.  Take in the mystery surrounding her presence.

Then the Sun goes into its month long stay in Scorpio, as we let in more darkness. Darkness can feel very safe sometimes, like being in a dark room alone or meditating into a deep space.

Then on Friday the 25th that same Scorpio Venus Goddess meets up in sextile with Pluto in Scorpio. The guardian of the underworld and Venus together can bring a deep understanding of how the current world and its leaders owe some karmic payments.

Then on Sunday the 27th is a New Moon in Scorpio. This New Moon brings us the intensity and passion we need now in order to lock into the focused energies we need.  Superficial play time is over.

Remember that Saturn and Pluto are headed for their powerful exact conjunction in January 2020, which will be a year to be long remembered.

Till next week,

Leo

Simplicity, Humility, and Astrology Forecast for August 18-24.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week the planets combine in relatively mild ways.

In contrast, summer 2019 has been really intense, violent, with strong breezes of chaos swirling in.

For those not privy to the bigger picture, events in the world would strongly suggest coming attractions of Doom and Gloom.

For many the world events during summer 2019 have brought with them such feelings of Doom and Gloom: the Trump presidency and its seemingly destined trip through an impeachment investigation; serious stock market and economy downward plunges promising a big recession; rhetoric for war between India/Pakistan, Iran/USA, China/USA, and Russia/USA; many mass killings in the USA; culture war between the right and left looking like a potential Civil War on the way. In Portland Oregon today is a big confrontation between far right and far left groups.  Israel is on the verge of major escalation with Palestine now.

And though Trump will not admit it, the danger of conflict between North Korea and the USA has grown this summer with NK blasting out many new rocket launches.

And more than anything else, the world’s leaders show us more and more how they are immature, self serving, unfair, corrupt; and feeling they are privileged and entitled.

The Epstein story, which ended his life this past week, has shown us that too many celebrities, wealthy people, and influential people in our world are without true moral fiber or concern for the most innocent of our human family, the children.

How can one, at this time, justify keeping the old paradigm and age alive?

It is time, as the heavens show us, to let go of that old age and paradigm in our minds, hearts, and consciousness.

We, as a collective, are in decay, as was Rome during the early portion of the now passing Age of Pisces.

As we decay, we need to come back to the lofty the ideals of “we the people”, freedom of the individual, “all people are created equal”, self determination for peoples; and a belief in a Diversity that can be naturally formed into a family of Unity for all.

Love and Truth are there always for us to embrace and live by. if we so choose and commit to.

The old programming from the decaying old age, shows us we live in a dog-eat-dog world that forces us to care only for us and ours.

Sure that may look to be true at times, but it is only true because we have bought into it, made it our reality.

This passing summer has blasted into our faces the cold reality of what we have allowed, what we have enabled.

We must take responsibility for our world, and truly believe in “we the people”.

Yes the old economy is dying. Yes the old power structures in the world are crumbling. And yes we will know what to do as things unfold.

Let love reign in your heart; let truth, “the whole truth and nothing but the truth” be the leader in your consciousness.

World events will continue to pour into our world as we move beyond Summer Eclipse Season 2019.

We now know we must deal with reality and the serious issues we have been shown need to be resolved.

Impeachment, the Economy, the growing Civil War, guns and gun control, frequent mass murders, Climate Change, etc. will continue to wake us up to what we need to do to evolve into the Age of Aquarius.

This week, as previously stated, is relatively mild planetarily speaking.

Since the Full Moon in Aquarius last week, we are now in the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Leo New Moon on July 31, a new moon day that included Mercury going back Direct.

Last week we reached climax from that lunar cycle at the Full Moon in Aquarius.  Energies have been at their most intense surrounding the time of that Full Moon late on Thursday.

Now during the “comedown” we gather ourselves while doing some cleaning, clearing, and acceptance of current reality.

The move into Virgo energies will assist us in that process.

Mars leaves big hearted, often big ego Leo in order to enter the humble, efficient, reality facing energy of Virgo on Sunday August 18

Mars in Virgo can be very to the point direct, which can feel judgmental.  When healthy, it expresses in a way that is quite constructive and fostering of being a master in one’s endeavors  When more toxic and cynical, it expresses in ways that demean and humiliate others or more likely oneself.

You can use this Mars in Virgo to help you better discern what is wrong, what needs to be fixed, and how to fix it. What has happened this summer, and what can we do to make things better.

Mars in Virgo takes action to work and get things done.  Negative Mars in Virgo is obsessive and won’t let anxiety go.

Venus enters Virgo on the 21st. Venus in Virgo attracts people and situations in a real and grounded manner.   It prefers simplicity and being of service.  It is humble, gentle, and sometimes self effacing.

Then on August 23 the Sun begins its annual journey through Virgo.  That means it is time to go back to school; get more serious about work; fix what needs to be fixed; put everything in order; and simplify your life.

Venus conjuncts Mars in Virgo on Saturday the 24th, to show us that the yang and the yin, the male and the female, are in accordance with making a life simple, humble and gently real.

The 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle begins on Friday the 23rd as the Sun goes into Virgo that day.  That 4th quarter Moon is in Gemini, so the mind and nervous system may be in overdrive.

That means anxiety, mental obsession, and obsessiveness may seek an entry into your consciousness and mind for a few days. Keep a lid on it.  Great countermeasures are meditation and Nature and Sky watching.

The world is turning into crisis mode, but you can stay trusting the process and the big picture no matter what.  We are undoubtedly moving imminently into the Age of Aquarius.

The next few years are crisis years, years of intense transition from an old world to a new world.

Trump people wear MAGA hats expressing a desire to make America great again.

What is happening is an attempt by those people to make America what they believe it used to be.

You do know that cannot happen, don’t you?

The world of caucasian men running the world (not just this country) with the obedient women and children strapped to them in undying loyal support is in its death throes.

Minorities will be the majority in 20 years or so.  Women are getting empowered and nothing will stop that.  Globalism (bringing the world closer together) is inevitable.

Nationalism, any kind, will have a short life span.   Capitalism in its current unfair state is in the process of being transformed. More “socialism” will be added to the economic mix, no matter what.

Wars to further one’s aspirations for resources, wealth, and dominance will not last much longer.

The only concern I have is in not knowing how dark and ugly it will get during the transition.

Like a Mother giving birth, it is unknown what the process will be like on the way to the birth.  Some are easy births, some are unbelievably difficult.

We cannot control nature during its moments of crisis, like in birth and death.

But we can learn to have trust and faith in its wisdom and the higher meaning it always brings with it.

Yes, get ready for the ride to get much more bumpy soon.

But likely not this week so much.

Till next week,

Leo
