Rearranging Lives and Astrology Forecast May 27- June 2

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 26, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we come to the climactic part of the current lunar cycle, a Full Moon in Sagittarius on Tuesday May 29 at 10:20 AM EDT.

This current lunar cycle began on May 15 at the New Moon in Taurus.

Whatever began at that New Moon in Taurus comes to some kind of climax, resolution, or turning point at this Full Moon in Sagittarius.

New Moons happen when the Sun and Moon are exactly conjunct one another.  A Full Moon happens when the Sun is exactly opposite where the Moon is at.

On those days, when the Sun sets the Moon can often be seen rising in the opposite direction at around the same time.

The Full Moon this week has the Moon in Sagittarius directly opposite the Sun in Gemini.

Gemini can be mentally rather complicated with much information and thought moving through the mind.

Its purpose is to communicate, but in so doing it can often be quite objective and matter of fact in its thinking and delivery.   A pure journalist is a good metaphor for Gemini.  There is no opinion or conclusive understanding of the information, just an information in, information out process.

Sometimes people think Gemini is insensitive to others when conveying such unadulterated information, but in reality it is just delivering the facts like a reporter would do.

Gemini, as the twins, is of two minds.  They mentally have like two “people” in their minds.  And you often do not know which one you are going to get. For some Geminis it feel like a good person and a bad person insi.

Sagittarius takes information and finds resolution, understanding, opinion, meaning, and even judgment from it. Sagittarius often comes to conclusions through intuition or inspiration.  They may speak their truth without proper word usage or sensitivity to the situation.  That following of intuition or inspiration often gets Sagittarius to leap before it looks, but that often takes Sagittarius on great adventures, for better or worse.

Donald Trump was born at this same Full Moon of Sagittarius in 1946. Except it was a Full Moon “on steroids”, as it was a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon he was born under.

Look at his Gemini/Sagittarius process.  He is of one mind saying he will do one thing, then he chooses the opposite alternative. Just this week, he went from North Korea summit on , to North Korea Summit off, to North Korea summit maybe back on again.

He goes from dominating, angry, threatening person to conciliatory understanding person.  He is a great example of Gemini Twins at work.

His Sagittarius Moon shows itself when he makes quick decisions “using his gut” or intuition, blurts out or tweets seemingly without thought of repercussions, and takes us all on a “not thought through” ride.

So at this Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius this week, it may be a very interesting week, a week when you may have great conversations with others; and be filled with much information you need to sort through to find answers or meaning.

Some will be overwhelmed by this process, yet others will be inspired and uplifted by the same process.

On the day of the Full Moon, Mercury (ruler of Gemini) will move out of Taurus and into its most resonate sign- Gemini. It will stay there for about a month.

So look for mental activity to increase this week, for desires for communication to get stronger.  Social activity may get stronger also.

This week, as we get our minds and spirit pumped up, we get closer to the next Eclipse Season. It will begin on June 27/28 at the Full Moon in Capricorn.

That Full Moon in Capricorn will be a week after the Summer Solstice and two weeks before the first of three eclipses, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12.

Let’s go back to April 15 for a minute. That was a big turning point, when a portal opened up into a New Chapter in our collective and personal lives. It was the day of a New Moon in Aries conjunct awakener Uranus.

The day before, there was a Yod or Finger of God formation that happened with the USA natal Mars.

So USA military matters faced a turning point then. Shortly after that, Trump ended the USA deal with Iran; he opened the USA embassy in Jerusalem; and he created, abandoned, and likely created again the Summit with North Korea.

These are most important developments, and how they each play out will show us what the Yod formation turning point was really about.

All 3 of those events point to a possibility of breakdown into war, as well as a possibility for breakthroughs out of conflicts.

And the coming Eclipse Season, a time when breakdowns and breakthroughs are common, will show us which directions we are moving toward.

We know all will happen, no matter what, to assist our process into the Age of ReaaAquarius.  How much destruction is necessary, and how much grace can we expect instead?

You know this is the time now that many expected at Y2K in 20001 or at the end of the Mayan Calendar in December 2012.

We are more ready now to let the old world end and have the new world be born. Each of our lives is going through the changes that are necessary so we will be positioned properly for the coming challenges.

We need to be living in the right place, be with the right people, and serving the purpose that we are meant to fulfill during this Transformational Transition between Ages.

The Universe is now shaking lives up and seeking to direct each of us to the right homes, relationships, and work that are aligned with where we need to soon be.

If a relationship is being challenged, you are working out if it is right for you going forward.  Can you just change the dysfunctional patterns or do you need to step out of the relationship?

If you no longer feel at home in your home, be open to where your new home may be.

If you feel no satisfaction from your work, be open to how you may express your purpose now.

The New You in the New Chapter needs to be in the environments and relationships that mirror who you have been becoming. The Old You in the Old Chapter is dying and you will be given motivation to release the environments and relationships that fit who you used to be, but not who you have been becoming.

This process can often feel insecure and confusing at times, and you may not feel comfortable in it.  Do your best to be patient, to stay centered and present, and be open in your heart and mind for appropriate changes.

The next Eclipse Season this summer will accelerate the process of transformation toward your Higher Soul Self, and into the Universe’s home base of Love and Truth.

Wake Up Time and Astrology Forecast May 13-19

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 12, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Much is shifting this week

We jump out of the last quarter phase of the Moon on Tuesday May 15.   That is because a new lunar cycle begins with the New Moon in Taurus that day. It is at 7:48 AM EDT.

Before that new moon and after it, there are more energetic shifts.

Before the New Moon in Taurus on the 15th, Mercury conjuncts Uranus while it squares Uranus on Saturday the 12th and Sunday the 13th.

That signifies a wake-up call to move out of stuck places, and it may happen in unexpected or even seemingly irrational ways.

One can be liberated now from old patterns, beliefs, or habits.   Go with that wake-up even if it feels uncomfortable or unfamiliar.

This waking up and breaking out energy continues much of the week as Mars squares Uranus on the 16th.

If you have any mental or emotional cobwebs that have stayed in slumber even though Winter has long passed, this week should help sweep them away.

There should be no more reason to put off, or rationalize away, or be distracted from what is real and true for you.

You are being taken out of the old mental boxes of limited and limiting options, in order to see more clearly.

Often old patterns or ego stories keep us locked up in the stuck ruts of the past.

You are in a New Chapter now, and you will be better served with less emotional or mental baggage to carry with you.

You can use this week to shed some of that baggage, as you no longer need to continue Groundhog Day over and over again.

Liberation begins with waking up from old ways.  People are always telling me they wish they would have been different when they were younger, doing things differently.

But life does not work that way.  We wake up when it is time, and of course planetary movements let us know when it is time.

Uranus is the wake-up planet, and when it is strong in the collective as it is this week, or strong by transit to one’s personal natal chart; that is when energies of liberation from old ways or beliefs is strongest.

And with the New Moon in Taurus happening along with the Uranus movements,  we can take our next steps forward in our life’s journey.

This New Moon in Taurus coincides with so many important events in the Middle East and more specifically in Israel/Palestine.

Gaza is in much turmoil now; Palestinian Nakba Day is the 15th, symbolizing the 700,000  Palestinians who became homeless in 1948. The Muslim holiday Ramadan begins on the 16th and Israel celebrates the 70th anniversary of it modern birth on the 14th.

And most importantly, Trump has moved forward with his plan to move the USA embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, beginning on Monday the 14th.

It has been in Tel Aviv for many years; so yes it is a Uranus movement of breaking out of how things used to be.  But this is also bringing up much rage in the Palestinian and Muslim communities who see this move as a USA statement of making Jerusalem Israel’s property.  Jerusalem is considered sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims.

Much of the transformation of our Earthly human community out of an Old Age is focused on the Middle East where so many religions and early civilizations were formed.

This is where so much now seems unsolvable, and so it is likely to ignite into a powerful place of transformation, as early as this year.  Many cultures and religions have envisioned an end of the old world and a rising of a new world at the End Times.

And many of those old cultures and religions believe this will be centered in the Middle East.

This coming Summer Eclipse Season has 3 eclipses and they are very connected to the charts of Israel, Iran, and Syria.  Much will be stirring up in those places this summer.

Also happening soon is the summit between USA and North Korea. June 12 this year is the chosen date. It will be in Singapore

That day is one day before the New Moon in Gemini and 2 days before Trump’s birthday.

But most importantly, it is conjunct the USA natal Mars, which can only happen once a year.   Mars is the god of war, so symbolically it does not seem like a good day for such a summit.

But right now it does appear that we are all moving toward peace with this summit, so maybe there is something I am not seeing in the symbols.

Yet historically, triggers to that same degree (21 degrees Gemini) have shown events like the beginning of World War II for America and John Kennedy’s assassination.

The Old Age and its decaying ways are in the process of dying and its death may be painful.

Do not get engulfed in the stories and dramas and fears that will come from the coming events. Be aware of what is happening, but do so as an observer not a participant.

Now we will need more and more to focus on the knowledge that we live in a meaningful Universe, one that is filled with love and truth, and is in transition into an Age of Aquarius.

Where we focus our energy now is important.  We can more ably focus on the love and truth of the Age of Aquarius, as we let go of the old beliefs and patterns that were drummed into us from the programming of our families and culture.

That programming perpetuates the ways of the Old Age and Old Paradigm. It keeps us in patterns that are toxic and dysfunctional, filled with fear and mistrust, enemies and separateness.

The coming storms will clear out the deadwood and create space for our new world’s ways.

As you clear out the old, magic and synchronicity come more alive, your life feels more meaningful and purposeful, and you get more comfortable being authentic and receptive to love.

This week provides us with the Uranus wake-ups and the New Moon in Taurus forward movement.

Those beginnings are potentially quite solid, as is Taurus. Those Taurus movements forward may also be rather slow.  Taurus themes of land, home, money, resources, nature, one’s body and nourishment are likely now.  Enjoy the pleasures of the body and the senses and solidify whatever you have previously envisioned or recently begun.

Uranus is not only in aspect to Mars and Mercury this week. It also makes its entry into Taurus after being in Aries for the last seven years. This year it will temporarily go back into Aries late this year and early in 2019.

Then is March 2019 it moves firmly into Taurus for the next 7 years. The last time Uranus was in Taurus was in 1935- 1942.   Uranus has an approximate 84 year cycle.

Themes from back then will resurface during the next 7 years or so.

So much has been shifting and changing for all of us lately, both collectively and personally.  Yes change can be challenging, yet the more we can dance with it instead of fearing and fighting it, the better off we will be.

Transformation cannot be stopped now, but the great opportunity is for better lives, better relationships, more passion and aliveness, more magic and meaning, more love and connection.

Take the ride.

till next week,

Leo

Settling in to New Reality and Astrology Forecast May 6-12

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 5, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The light of the silvery Moon fades more and more now, as the current lunar cycle enters its 4th and last quarter phase on Monday May 7 this week.  The Moon enters the last quarter while in Aquarius.

That means that the dimming night light in the sky is lit up best now with thoughts of a more socially conscious world intending to serve all the Earth’s community.

Our thoughts and feelings and visions have much influence on the evolving collective consciousness of our human family here on Earth.

Our ancestors believed that the gods and goddesses of the planets ruled our lives as non negotiable fate.

And back then most also believed that the kings and queens who ruled the real world also fatalistically determined our human fate.

We have since been evolving our collective consciousness into a new perspective that sees “we the people” as rulers of our own world.

When Uranus, ruling planet of Aquarius, was discovered in 1781; there were two important revolutions igniting on Planet Earth: The American and French revolutions.

Both of these revolutions sought to overthrow the dominance of royalty, so individual humans would rule their own world.

And since then, through democratic institutions, such rule by the people has been attempted in many places across the world.

And this same attitude of human empowerment has been growing in relationship to planetary rulers too, as the planets were envisioned as connected to the gods and goddesses as in Jupiter, Venus, etc.

We humans have been learning about creating our own world, of course within the framework of planetary movements.

Yes the planets bring us energies that are real and need to be recognized and respected.  Yet we have been learning to co-create with these divine symbols from our heavens.

Just as weather systems bring in certain energies and configurations into our daily lives, we as humans choose our response to these systems and storms. And of course we have built shelters and damns and other structures to help us with these weather systems..

We now are at a huge turning point in our evolution toward creating our own world, in conjunction with what the Universe brings to us.

The Age of Aquarius is about developing a world community that is governed by “we the people” who are intrinsically equal in value to one another. That paradigm will naturally create a  world of Diversity Within Unity.

So this turning point in our human development means we must take full responsibility for our world, and be proactive in the downfall of Empire, Dictators, Presidents, Kings, Queens, Corporations, and Military that have heretofore dominated our existence and have been destroying the Earth and oceans, wildlife, and Universal values like love and truth that keep our souls, spirits, bodies, and lives healthy, vibrant and alive.

The craziness, ugliness, corruption, lies, and deceit that are so evident in the world now are part of the decay of the old world.

That decay is picking up speed and we are all feeling it in our own lives too. Our relationships, families, jobs, and sense of security are going through huge transformation now.  Everything is not the same as it was anymore.

We are all needing to grow and evolve now into realms that take us out of our comfort zones.

This is not doom and gloom developing; it is instead an opportunity to be better than ever before. But it sure can feel pretty bad sometimes in this transformational process to get to the better places.

So this week we move into the dimming Moon of the last quarter, which ends at the New Moon in Taurus on May 15.

Best now to slow down and not push hard for any agenda.

Tuesday could be the most intense day this week as the Sun opposes Jupiter in Scorpio.

And at the end of the week, Moon, Mercury and Uranus in Aries square up with Mars in Capricorn.  That is potentially the most  combative time this coming week.

Many events that are connected to the recent opening of the portal in mid April will continue to pour in.  We are in a New Chapter of our personal and collective lives now and the new events are reflective of a “new normal” that is developing.

The Trump decision on Iran; opening of USA embassy in Jerusalem;  and meeting of Trump and Kim of North Korea all happen in May and June.  The results will help define what this New Chapter will be like in the global world.

All is leading up to a very powerful Eclipse Season in July and August, when there are 3 eclipses in a row. That is when Pandora’s Box will break open with many world events.

Iran, Israel, Syria, and Russia are all closely connected to these coming eclipses, and powerful events involving these countries are quite likely.

There is a Solar Eclipse in Cancer closely opposed by Pluto in Capricorn on July 12;  a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius that forms a strong fixed T-square with Mars and Uranus on July 27; and another Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11 that is square Jupiter in Scorpio.

All this will be happening with Mars and Mercury Retrograde during much of that Eclipse Season.

Of course we will explain much more as we get closer to that Eclipse Season.

Remember that everything is happening meaningfully, and is part of our transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

We humans have the ability to co-create now;  and we will be at our best if we are in integrity with the higher values of the heavens of the Universe, while honoring the values of the essential and primal movements of Nature and Earth, our Home.

Use the time this week, during the 4th quarter Moon, to get your bearings, to get yourself and your life “together”, and to get ready for the next lunar cycle at the New Moon in Taurus on May 15.

Till next week,

Leo

Wesak and Beltane and Astrology Forecast April 29- May 5

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

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Early this week there is a sacred yearly full moon, the Wesak Full Moon.

Every springtime it happens with the Moon in Scorpio and Sun directly opposite in Taurus.  This year it is on April 29 at 8:58 PM EDT.

People celebrate this Wesak Full Moon as Buddha’s birthday. He was said to be born on the Wesak Full Moon.

And lore has it that on the same day in a different year Buddha found enlightenment. Then on that same day again in a different year Buddha faced his death.

So you can see why so many, especially Buddhists, treat the Wesak Full Moon as a holy day.

In planetary terms this Wesak Full Moon is always a Scorpio Full Moon, so with the Sun in Taurus directly opposite the Moon in Scorpio there is a tension between calm solidity (Taurus) and intense passion (Scorpio).

Taurus and Scorpio are both “fixed” signs. Taurus is fixed Earth (body) and Scorpio is fixed water (soul).

They both can be quite stubborn.   Taurus tends to hold onto what it has possessed and Scorpio holds onto feelings, especially feelings that have resulted from having been hurt by someone.

Taurus avoids intense emotional expressions which Scorpio often shows; and Scorpio does not like the often passionless Taurus behavior.

But when in balance they are great compliments to one another:  Taurus calms and grounds the intensity of Scorpio, and Scorpio brings some spiciness and passion to Taurus.

Since they are both fixed signs, there can sometimes be a tug of war between them, with neither giving up.

A couple days after the Wesak Full Moon, there is annual Beltane. It is on May 1st and it is the mid point between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice.

At  that midpoint, there are often feelings of optimism, as nature is turning away from Spring and toward Summer.

Beltane is considered a day of fertility, and people have traditionally moved around a maypole, signifying the dance between male and female energies.

So use this week, with Beltane and Wesak, to celebrate this beautiful time of year in the Northern Hemisphere, when nature is beginning to show its beauty.

Meditate, enjoy nature and body pleasures this week. This break is sorely needed for all of us, as there has been so much changing, shifting, and transforming.

The Scorpio Full Moon may be rather intense, especially following the Mars/Pluto conjunction late last week.  But soon after the Full Moon, the emotional climate should begin to shift from primal intensity toward more upliftment, as The Moon will be in Sagittarius most of Beltane and continuing into the 2nd and 3rd of May.

Out in the greater world, North and South Korea are bringing the world more optimism as they make promises to have peace between them.

But North Korea’s Kim Jong Un will meet Trump in late May or June for a Summit to try to resolve tensions on the Korean peninsula.

We shall see if that meeting adds to the optimism or begins to drag us into war cries again.

The Middle East holds the most possibility for great conflict as Trump will open up a USA embassy in Jerusalem in mid May, and he will also likely put a stop to the Obama and world agreement with Iran. He will likely do that by putting sanctions back on Iran. That decision also happens in mid May. There are so many countries involved in Syria, it would not take much for it to ignite into something big

So now after the Portal was opened at the Aries New Moon on April 15, we watch all the important world events come pouring through that portal. There are many more to come.

And you know you have entered a whole New Chapter of your own life.    As we get farther away from the New Moon Portal of April 15, you get more and more clear about what is manifesting in this New Chapter for you.

We have all been releasing what needs to be let go of, and as the process of letting go calms down now, we will see more clearly what is being formed as a result.  Letting go, releasing and purging, opens up space to let the new in.

Many of us have felt we have been caught between worlds or chapters of our life- the old no longer exists, yet the new not formed or in some cases not even envisioned yet.

But the shift has happened, and from now on we will get more clear about what is coming, both personally and globally.

This process of moving forward will accelerate in June, July, August.  In July/August there will be 3 eclipses in a row, and usually there are only 2 in a row.

Both Mercury and Mars will be retrograde during much of that Eclipse Season, adding to the complexity of that Season.

Remember that the old world and paradigm will suffer even more at the Fall of Rome again. It fell at the beginning of the Age of Pisces and falls again at the end of the Age of Pisces.

The reality of Empires and Superpowers is dying as the Pisces Age dies.  The new paradigm of Diversity within Unity comes with the Age of Aquarius, as power is more equally distributed.

The old form of Capitalism will die too, as there is plenty of wealth to be spread all over the globe for all the people. Now there is too much disparity between the mega wealthy and suffering poor.

Is it OK to perpetuate an economic system that rewards those whose talent is to make money, and punishes those who cannot develop riches? Do you realize how many talented, creative, spiritual and idealistic people we are losing in this world because their highest priority needs to be making money.

Greed pays  off in this system, as does domination and abuse of power.

We are in the process of transforming this system in America and all over the world.

New light, love and truth are trying to move through the cracks of the system’s concrete structure.  Those cracks will open wider soon, especially so during the next Eclipse Season in July and August.

The Portal opened on April 15, and the energies creating the Age of Aquarius will continue to look for openings in all of us.

Transformation is our reality now, so do not be afraid of how the world is looking at times now.

Humans often think they rule the Universe and Earth.  The Universe and Earth laugh. We will not destroy the Earth or the Heavens.

The cycles, planets, and seasons keep turning no matter what we do. But we sure can make our own lives to suffer, and we sure are capable of destroying ourselves.

Concentrate on your own evolution of consciousness and on spreading your light, truth and love to all you come in contact with. That is what saves the world.

Till next week,

Leo

Pluto Releasing the Old and Astrology Forecast April 22-28

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This past week we entered a whole New Chapter of both our collective  and personal lives.

That does not mean that it has been or will be smooth sailing now. In fact for many people there were already obstacles to work through after that New Moon in Aries last week.

Gravity ruling, “stop sign” Saturn was especially strong last week too. And though Mercury went Direct on the same day as the New Moon in Aries, for many people full clarity has not been found yet.

It takes Mercury several days after it has gone Direct to return to its usual speed, and during that time the fog may just slowly lift from our view ahead.

Make no mistake however, we have turned a corner, and are now moving forward in a new phase of life.

There is some purging to be done now, however, as Pluto has been slowing down in order to go Retrograde on Sunday April 22.

So we have been experiencing Pluto’s energy the last couple of days and will continue  to do so much of this coming week.

Pluto is a very passionate and intense ruler of the underworld, and as such brings us down into the subconscious so we can be more more conscious of what is needing to be experienced and hopefully released.

If you are drawn this week to look at the past, past events, and past patterns of thought and behavior, it is happening so you can release, let go of what is not in alignment in this New Chapter.

You do not need anymore the same old inner stories that have become heavy baggage in your consciousness and life.

So use this time now to let go of your grip on that which is weighing you down psychologically, emotionally, spiritually and/or physically.

We will in late Spring be moving much more rapidly through this New Chapter, which is in essence a new frequency and dimension in our consciousness.

But for this week, Pluto changes directions Sunday the 22nd, and then on Thursday the 26th Mars collides in conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn.  This is potentially a very intense and powerful meeting between these two planets.

And approximately 3 days before that Mars in Capricorn sextiles Jupiter in Scorpio.

Those two planetary events trigger the Jupiter sextile Pluto aspect of April 14, which formed a Yod or “finger of god” with the USA natal Mars. 

Less than a day before that Yod, Syria was bombed by western nations, which points the finger to potential war in the Middle East.

But on the contrary, peace ostensibly looks more promising in Korea, as North Korea made some big compromises prior to its coming meetings with South Korea and the USA.

This week North Korean and South Korean leaders meet in a summit on April 27.  With the triggering of the Yod this week, we will get a better sense of where the finger is pointing on the Korean Peninsula- toward or away from USA conflict.

Of course the issue of gun  ownership, and the issue of police killings of black men are also part of this turning point around the USA Mars in the “finger of god” alignment now. Pay close attention to what direction all these issues are turning toward this week.

In personal lives these Plutonian interactions will tend to bring up old stories and patterns, and could also bring up more volatile emotions, especially between people in relationships.

Please do your best to know these events are happening in order to help to purge what needs to be let go. Perhaps you may feel you are being taken back to old stuff you thought had been resolved or released already.

But what is coming up is not you going backwards, it is instead an opportunity for a deeper cleaning to occur inside your mind and soul.

Also the intensity may be rising in order to help you make transformational breakthroughs that are important on your path through this new phase of life.

The old energies, stories and patterns want to be transformed into new consciousness and ways, and you can be proactive in the process if you stay conscious and aware.

Is it not totally apparent now how much everything is shifting, changing, and transforming? It is beginning to feel like the ’60s and ’70s may have been mild in comparison.

This current wave of change is not for the opportunity to put bandages on old issues so we can later go back into the same old dysfunctional ways.

Our world is transforming in ways we cannot completely comprehend yet. And each of our lives is transforming as part of that process.

Relationships especially may be rocky now, as we navigate balancing our rapid individual growth with trying to stay connected in our relationships.

It may not be totally apparent how to achieve that balance or sometimes even to know whether the relationship will last.

Will the New Chapter keep you together or will it need to bring you on separate paths?

Some of you have already been given some indication which way that is turning now, but others need more time to be able to feel more certain.

This week has some volatility and releasing necessary, but also with the Taurus influence there is a firming up of what has previously begun.

Aries is a force for moving forward, like buds coming through the branches in springtime.

Yet Taurus, where the Sun and Venus are now, stabilizes and allows to blossom what has begun.  So for the most part the month of May will stabilize, manifest, and make more solid.

Then in June, with the energies of Gemini strong, we move faster forward through our New Chapter.  Events will pour much faster through that portal that was opened at the Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus on April 15.

That was a turning point weekend for us individually and globally.

In May/June we will have a much better sense of where the Trump investigations are going. We will also know much more where the Middle East is going and where the Korean situation is going. There are many important events already scheduled for those months for those issues.

This week also has some lighter energy coming in as Venus leaves Taurus and enters Gemini on Tuesday the 24th. It will stay in Gemini until May 19.

Venus in Gemini brings with it light social interaction, more mental agility in relating, a desire for more talking and communicating, and generally also more flirting and light teasing.

That should lighten the focused intensity this week that will also be present at the usually profound Full Moon experience on Sunday April 29. It is a Scorpio Full Moon which is also called the Wesak Full Moon, often related to the birth of Buddha and Buddha light rays coming through our human experience.

Contact Deborah Tallarico at moonsoul9@aol.com for more info on joining the online global ceremony at the Spiritual Renaissance Center for that Wesak Full Moon.

We will write more about that Scorpio Wesak Full Moon next week.

Always keep in mind that the transformation we are experiencing, as challenging as that  is sometimes, is bringing us into the consciousness and ways of the Age of Aquarius.

This New Chapter we have entered is an important vehicle in time that is moving us more strongly into the new dimensions and frequencies of that New Age.

Till next week,

Leo

Black Panther and Astrology Forecast April 8-14

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we enter the darkening last quarter of the lunar cycle and the last week of Mercury Retrograde.

The actual beginning of the last quarter Moon happens in Capricorn early morning of Sunday April 8. It signifies Capricorn waiting patience holding back the new beginning of Aries.

This whole week shows nighttime energy, a symbol of the power of the Feminine.

The Black Panther has been showing itself to me just before my writing this blog today.

She is a symbol of the Dark Feminine, of Mystery, and she is strongest right at a New Moon, as that is the darkest time of the lunar cycle, right before the dawn of the Moon’s crescent light.

The Black Panther therefore represents death and rebirth, which happens as we transition from last quarter Moon to the New Moon in Aries on April 15. At that moment of transition, all is unknown and a mystery- no more past and a future not yet known.

We have been letting you know the importance of that New Moon in Aries, which happens to be closely conjunct the awakening lightning of Uranus. It will also be square the deeply transformational Pluto, which we will write more about next week.

So this week, before that New Moon, allow your self to go deeper into your own inner night, so you can release as much psychological baggage as possible. If you are confronted by your past, especially your old stories from the past, do not be afraid it is back in your life again.

It is showing up so you can see it another time before it is purged from the deep well inside your soul.

You no longer need to hold onto old demons or old ego stories that keep you chained to the past.

This is a big and important New Moon in Aries, on the same day as Mercury goes Direct.  So lightening your load of old garbage will make you more able to enter your New Chapter without undue restrictions.

During this Mercury Retrograde, have old friends or lovers come back to you in dreams or waking flashes of memory or even back in physical reality?

If so they are to remind you of that which has helped to create an old story or a continuing dysfunctional pattern you no longer need carry.

And they also may represent a part of your self you have abandoned that now needs to be re-membered in your soul and psyche.

The dark passage of the Black Panther is shown also by a Sun square Pluto aspect midweek.

The Sun is challenged then by “guardian of underworld” Pluto, darkening the light of the Sun.  Black Panther has also been represented in myth as that which swallow the light of a Solar Eclipse, which is always part of a New Moon.

On Saturday the 14th, a day before the Aries New Moon, bright inspirational Jupiter is in sextile aspect to the same darkening Pluto.

This sextile forms a Yod or “Finger of God” with the USA natal Mars in Gemini. That Mars in Gemini forms a very close conjunction with Trump’s natal Sun and opposite his natal Moon in Sagittarius.

the Yod forming with the USA Mars symbolizes an important turning point for USA military and police business. And of course Trump with his natal chart is an important player in this turning point.

It is quite revealing that there are important events less than a month after the New Moon in Aries.   

There is a summit between North and South Korean presidents in late April and a potential summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un in May. This meeting will bring peace or war to the world

Also in early May the USA and Trump decide whether to continue with the deal struck by President Obama with Iran.  If sanctions on Iran are brought back, that will nullify the Iran deal with the USA and bring increased danger in the Middle East. If the deal is kept peace will likely stay intact.

And also in mid May the USA is scheduled to move their embassy to Jerusalem after the recent declaration by president Trump that Jerusalemsy is the eternal Capitol of Israel.

The Palestinians and Muslim world see Jerusalem as their sacred city and claim the eastern half as their Capitol.

So you can see how putting the USA embassy there is a potentially triggering event, one that could bring renewed violence to the region. If Trump turns around and does not build the embassy, there will be a big shift away from war.

So it is easy to see how the Yod represents an important military turning point for the USA.

There are important new beginnings happening one way or another soon after the Yod and New Moon in Aries.

And this is true for your own life too, most especially if you have natal planets in late Aries. If so these new beginning will be very important ones for you.

Yet for everyone, we are at a point of “ready or not here we come”, as used to be yelled during childhood “hide and seek” games, signifying when there was no more time to try to find a place to hide.

And we will also not be able to hide in the slumber of winter rest anymore  It will be time to wake up at the Aries New Moon, especially so as awakening Uranus is an integral part of that New Moon structure.

And as Mercury will also be going Direct that day, the recent sleep will be beginning to lift from our eyes, in order to soon see what is happening and what direction to move toward.

Just as the aforementioned world events do not come until a month or so after the New Moon in Aries and Mercury Direct, you also can expect there to be some time before real clarity, direction, inspiration and/or important personal events are formed.

Best to see the New Moon/Mercury Direct time as an energetic turning point into the action of your new beginnings.. Be present to feel that energetic shift in the days surrounding the event.

Keep in mind however that this week is the week leading up to the New Moon in Aries and Mercury Direct, not the week it happens.

The light and energies are dimming this week, so you can be more immersed in your own inner consciousness.

The Moon (an important symbol of the Black Panther) will be darkening more and more each day this week.  And when it is totally dark before and during the New Moon in Aries, it is a perfect time to meditate, to make intention, to pray, to use visualization as a tool to co-create with the Universe.

This week shows the Black Panther getting stronger and stronger. It is interesting how the movie Black Panther is so popular in our culture now.

And synchronistically the issue of killing unarmed Black men by police has been recently triggered by the shooting of an unarmed Black man in Sacramento California.

Black Panther also represents the moment between death and life, a true time of transformation.

And the turning point at the New Moon in Aries with Mercury Direct on April 15 is the point between death of the old and birth of the new.

The Age of Aquarius is being born from the ashes of the Age of Pisces.  And no matter which way we turn after the Finger of God points the way, we still will be getting closer to the Age of Aquarius.

The only question is whether the path ahead will be rugged or more graceful.

Till next week,

Leo

The Fool and Astrology Forecast March 25-31

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo
