Chaos and Order and Astrology Forecast July 14-20

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 13, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn hits exactly on Tuesday July 16 at 5:38 PM EDT. 

As this is a full moon, the Sun in Cancer is opposite the Full Moon in Capricorn at 24+ degrees of each sign.  Pluto at 21+degrees of Capricorn is conjunct the moon and opposite the Sun.

So this a powerful full moon eclipse.  You can begin to feel or experience a full moon of any kind usually about 3 days before the full moon and up to 3 days after the full moon.

This Full Moon Eclipse has the Sun in water sign Cancer and the Moon in earth sign Capricorn.

Capricorn makes boundaries, rules, and strict definitions more solidly than any sign, while Cancer can spread its energies, moods, and watery feelings without any desire for boundaries, rules or strict definitions

Just take a look at the issues that are already coming into view in anticipation of the Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon Eclipse.

As I write this, a Hurricane is close to making landfall in Louisiana. Its explosive power will bring huge waves of water onto the land, as people try to limit the damage it creates.

And for Sunday the 14th,  Trump has ordered immigration officers to round up immigrants who are seen as invaders breaking the law by being in the country illegally.

I am sure these issues will play out over the next few days, and other issues with the same theme of energies out of control being challenged by boundaries and rules of law.

Put in simpler terms, this can be seen as Chaos versus Order, and at its worst can be experienced as Anarchy versus Fascism.

It sure does feel sometimes as if we are on the verge of a much more intense version of chaos versus order than we are witnessing now.

In your own life, do you need more rules to follow with more discipline? Do you need to assert stronger boundaries and learn to say no more often?

Or do you need to loosen up more, be less judgmental, and allow more freedom of expression around you?

Cancer can be very lenient and unconditional. Capricorn can be a strict taskmaster.

Opposites are not meant to be at war with one another.  They are meant to compliment one another and, to offer different viewpoints,  and like a magnet be drawn to connecting with one another.

Can you see “hot” being at war with “cold”? Should “up” go to war with “down”? Should night be fighting against day?

Opposites are joined by the circle of a Yin/Yang symbol. We have been breaking apart that unifying symbol, and creating war.

Men versus Women is certainly playing out in a big way in our culture now.  They are instead meant to join as one.

But since they have been distorted for such a long time from their natural expression, and programmed to act in overly defined roles,  they are needing to be liberated from those chains of control.

And in so doing, they each have needed to be free to find themselves, their authentic expression.  And that authenticity needs to adjust itself to a rapidly changing world, to a New Age.

So is it any wonder we have women becoming men, men becoming women, and such uncertainty  and fluidity with gender and sexual identity?

Remember that this Eclipse Season is a mere appetizer before the main meal of December 2019/January 2020. There will be two eclipses again with Cancer/Capricorn staying as themes. And also then in January 2020 Saturn and Pluto will make an exact conjunction with one another, and their conjunction will be conjunct the Cancer Lunar Eclipse in January.

And all this is happening in the same section of the zodiac- between 19 and 25 degrees of Cancer and Capricorn.

That means that if you have natal planets between 19 and 25 degrees of Cardinal Signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn you will be going through powerful transformation over the next several months.

This Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn on July 16 is at 24+ degrees of Cancer/Capricorn.

The USA natal Mercury is at 24 degrees of Cancer and opposite natal Pluto at 27 degrees of Capricorn.

So the USA is experiencing a powerful transformation of its liberal (Cancer) and conservative (Capricorn) sides to itself.

This theme is powerfully playing out now, and will continue to do so through January 2020.  This is a true culture war similar to the Civil War of the 19th Century in America. Now we have Blue and Red states playing out the same general themes.

America is finding itself, finding its values.  Who are we now? And how do we now relate  to the rest of the world and to the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius we are transitioning into?

The current inflammatory issues with Iran and China and Russia are of utmost importance now. The issue of having an economic system fair to all is of utmost importance now. The issue of taking care of our Mother Earth is of utmost importance now.

As we move through this important week of the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, while Mercury is Retrograde; it is important to keep our view to the Big Picture.

And that picture shows us that inside all the wars and separations is the truth that all is connected, whether we recognize it or not.  Under the surface lies spirit and soul that fuels and energizes our experience.

Being a part of that connectedness shows us magic, solutions where none could be previously found, signs and synchronicities that show our Universal connections, and of course the Love and Truth that holds us all in its embrace.

If you are having a difficult time making those connections, you know that regular meditation is the best way to take you there and keep you there.  So also can being immersed in Nature, or opening your heart with music and dance, or spending time with babies and puppies and kitties.

Life in this Universe and Earth realm runs on seasons and cycles.  The planets in the heavens run in predictable cycles, here on Earth each season passes into the next.

And amazingly, the Sun and Moon both show up as perfect circles in the heavens, as viewed from Earth.

Straight lines begin and end; circles show continuation.  And only relatively recently did we know that the Earth was round, an important symbolic discovery.

And now we in the process of experiencing one of the biggest cycles: changing of the ages.  That now is a Pisces Age changing into an Age of Aquarius- a 2160 year cycle.

The election in November 2020 leads into the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius in December 2020.  This is a turning point toward the Age of Aquarius, not all perfect, but nevertheless a solid sign all is progressing as it should.

Till next week,

Leo

New Parental Paradigms and Astrology Forecast July 7-13.

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on July 6, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Emotions certainly intensified last week surrounding the date of the Solar Eclipse last week: July 2.   Many people also experienced a rising up of tensions concerning family matters last week.  Here in New England a rising level of muggy humidity added to the discomfort.

I also felt a slipping into a “twilight zone” of unreality last week too.  The Trump 4th of July display of military tanks, planes, and weapons in D.C. added to the unreal (or maybe too real) quality of last week.

And this foggy air of insecure feelings coordinates with Mercury’s movement, as it has been slowing down in anticipation for its shift from Direct to Retrograde.

Mercury goes Retrograde on Sunday July 7 at 7:14 PM EDT.  It will stay there until July 31.  So the remainder of Summer Eclipse Season, which includes one more eclipse on July 16,  will be mixing it up with Mercury Retrograde the whole time.

That second eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn, will be conjunct both Pluto and Saturn.  Pluto will be less than 3 degrees away from that Full Moon Eclipse. That is the more powerful of the two eclipses.

So this week, the week in between eclipses and introducing Mercury Retrograde, intensifies the emotional energy field, and will tend toward having large breakthroughs into new realms.

Those breakthroughs will result from a combination of being in the middle of the eclipses, Mercury Retrograde and the powerful and liberating Mars square Uranus.

Mars square Uranus is on Thursday July 11. It represents the experience of breaking out of stuck places, liberation, changing tides of action, and breakthroughs into new territories.

Eclipses are always about change, letting go of what one clings to beyond its lifeblood.  It is about breakthroughs but also breakdowns sometimes.

Mercury Retrograde also helps with change, as there is a readjustment of one’s perceptions, and a questioning of what was previously decided.

But of course it is usually not a great time to change one’s mind or direction until after Mercury has been back Direct for a week or so.

Mars in Leo square Uranus this week also can be a revolutionary energy. This is especially so because Mars is in “royal” Leo and Uranus (the ruling planet of Aquarius) is the planet of rebellion.

Energies that seek to break away from our current King George in America (Trump), will likely be much stronger this week. Mueller interviewed by Congress will happen on the 17th, a day after the Lunar Eclipse.

Also keep a close eye on Iran and Israel this week, as Mars in Leo begins to work its way through the natal charts of America, Israel, Iran, Trump, and Netanyahu.

The last time Mars was in Leo was when the great American Total Solar Eclipse in Leo shook up our world in August 2017.

Charlottesville Virginia showed us white supremacy and culture war; North Korea and Trump traded dangerous words of destruction to one another; and the Middle East was simmering hot.

For the rest of this current July and most of August, Mars will be triggering the charts mentioned above; and then will trigger the actual degree of the Total Leo Solar Eclipse on August 15.

Is there any doubt that the PTB are eyeing up Iran as they eyed up Iraq?  The time of Mars in Leo this summer is a likely time of eruption.

These Eclipse Seasons are meant to take us out of status quo coasting, and get us out of our easy chairs of avoidance.

Energies from the river of new consciousness, the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius, are pushing hard against the dams of our old ways.

During times like this summer, the dams are showing big leaks and threaten to break apart so the waters of new consciousness, light, love and truth can come pouring through.

Those old ways do tend to give us a sense of stability and security, but at the same time they keep our hearts and souls controlled and locked up in chains.

The powerful events coming into our world now, no matter what, will break open the gates of our controlled hearts and souls.

This Eclipse Season is helping us to break away from family patterns, dysfunctions, and co-dependencies.

The whole idea of needing to live up to something in order to be loved, is wanting to dissolve in our minds and souls.

Each generation attempts to pass down to the next generation the same patterns.  But you can stop the movement, we can stop the movement.

When a parent holds back love in order to motivate a child to do better at something, it is injuring that soul on a very deep level. It is so difficult to break away from that pattern later in life.

Yes task masters can be very helpful in getting someone to be the best that they can be, to be excellent and a master at what they do.

You can hold back praise and be disappointed. Hold them accountable. But please do not make that child feel they do not deserve love, that love must be earned.

We each deserve to be loved for exactly who we are authentically, which we do for our babies and toddlers. But then, often coinciding with school attendance, we damage self esteem and self love by our showing disdain and disgust for those not living up to a high bar of achievement.

The Cancer/Capricorn dichotomy during the eclipses now and again in December 2019 and January 2020, will tend to bring out these issues.

Cancer can guilt and shame us into doing what is expected; Capricorn can humiliate and destroy our self esteem. Together they are the Mother (Cancer) and Father (Capricorn) of the old paradigm.

Those archetypes sought to program us, so we could produce for and show allegiance to the Family (Cancer) and State (Capricorn).

Now those signs are transforming how they operate in our new consciousness for a new Age.

Cancer is the unconditionally loving parent who sees our soul and knows us as precious beings. It helps us develop inner values based on who we are. It helps us to love ourselves.

Capricorn is the parent who sees what we can do in the world, based on our talents and gifts, and interests.  And more than all else, it guides us to find our potential destiny, our purpose for being on the Earth this incarnation. It helps us to find our truth.

Now with the Cancer/Capricorn emphasis in our recent Eclipse Seasons, we can purge the old parents inside us. And we can let in the transformed inner parents who are our foundation in the new paradigm and age.

Our own personal parents often do the best they can for the time.  After we have passed through layers of transformation, we learn to love them in new ways.

As we release our need to make them be what we wanted them to be, we are at the same time giving them the consciousness of the new paradigm and age.

The parents you received this lifetime are arguably just what you needed, not necessarily what you wanted.

Stay present for energies that are moving through you this Eclipse Season. It may not feel so good sometimes, but the deeper transformational work is happening deep inside our hearts and souls.

Till next week and the powerful Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn,

Leo

Getting Ready and Astrology Forecast June 23-29.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move into the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Gemini on June 3.

The 4th quarter begins on Tuesday the 25th with the Moon in Aries square the Sun in Cancer.

So even though we enter the usually winding down quarter of the lunar cycle, the Aries Moon is wanting us to take some kind of action or at least to begin to empower ourselves in some way.

The 4th quarter of a lunar cycle is also about releasing, gathering, and preparing for the turn into the new beginnings of a new lunar cycle at the new moon.

And since the New Moon will be one on steroids, because it is a New Moon Solar Eclipse, the getting ready time has more intensity and importance than the usual  4th quarter of the lunar cycle.

Before the 4th quarter begins, however, Venus makes some significant moves.

On the 23rd Venus opposes Jupiter, a day before it squares Neptune. So there is some processing around relationship issues that needs to be addressed before the 4th quarter gathering, cleaning, and releasing.

This relationship processing is partly about getting a bigger picture view of relationship and how it fits into your life now.  What are your priorities now?  How much emphasis does your relationship and/or family have for you in contrast to your sense of life purpose?

Life will intensify appreciably beginning next week, as we then experience a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on Tuesday July 2. And 5 days later Mercury goes Retrograde on July 7. It will stay Retrograde until July 31.

And the second eclipse will be experienced while Mercury is still Retrograde, as it is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn on July 16.

That Lunar Eclipse on July 16 will at 24+ degrees of Cancer/Capricorn. That means both Saturn (17 degrees Capricorn) and Pluto (22 degrees Capricorn) will be in the signature of the Lunar Eclipse.

That adds intensity and meaning to the eclipse, but also makes everything feel more real, substantive, and transformational.  Our ideas and desires to transform our world, which has been stirring for many years for many of us, now gets more real than ever.

It is time to get our hands dirty and contribute to this world in transitional crisis. Coming events will demand us to do this.

This Summer Eclipse Season, though powerful in itself, is just an appetizer for the main meal in January 2020 when Saturn and Pluto are exactly conjunct during another set of powerful eclipses.

The Cancer/Capricorn sign emphasis for both Eclipse Seasons, show us the need to balance the Father archetype (Capricorn) with the Mother archetype (Cancer).

Capricorn respects what you do, while Cancer respects who you are. Capricorn is more outer directed and Cancer more inner directed.

So we are getting ourselves ready to find a new balance between these differing societal values.

And in our culture here in the USA, there is a culture war going on between Cancerian Liberal values and Capricorn Conservative values.  These two different sides have little connection between them nowadays.

Of course in a healthy world they join in union like a yin/yang symbol. But now they are  largely at war in our society.

In general Women are getting more empowered and speaking their minds, and Men are learning to be more sensitive, empathic, and understanding.

As we as a culture are just learning to do these things, we are in many cases getting further apart from one another.

But we will join again in a more healthy and connected union (yin/yang symbol).

The real work is internal, where each of us needs to find both a healthy male and healthy female inside ourselves.

Carl Jung said that men had an inner woman (anima) and women had an inner man (animus).  The condition of a man’s anima can be seen in the women he attracts to himself; and the state of a woman’s animus is reflected by the men she attracts to herself. And of course this changes through the years, as one develops a more healthy and integrated gender balance.

And of course now in our world, the whole idea of gender identification is changing, making the process more complicated.

But the point is that the inner work is so important now around gender balancing.

Women seem be ahead of men in gender balancing as society puts out a greater stigma against men integrating their “feminine” side.

Men must pick up the slack now, and get over rigid ideas of what it is to be a man.

So with this Cancer/Capricorn emphasis now, we will be challenged to integrate male and female in new ways.

The war between men and women now, or between conservative and liberal, is ridiculous and self destructive to our human family. Time for us all to grow up.

And events in the world will challenge us to grow and evolve, as these events get more and more challenging

There was almost a war ignited between the USA and Iran this last week over a large tin can of a USA drone being struck down as it supposedly entered Iranian space.

Trump did stop the attack dogs from attacking, but that conflict is far from over.

Remember Trump is a Sun in Gemini, and as such the twins have very different ways of being.

Geminis often have a “good person” voice whispering in one ear, as a “bad person” voice whispers in the other ear.

So Trump gives word to attack and then changes his Gemini mind.

Next week when the eclipses begin, we shall see what happens then.

Next week we will look at the Solar Eclipse New Moon and how it may affect the candidates and their natal charts. Next week are the first debates for presidential candidates. We will also begin to analyze the charts and chances to be president for the main candidates in the race next week.

Till next week,

Leo

Eclipse Season Begins and Astrology Forecast June 16-22.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

A bugle sounds for us to wake up from hiding this week.  As the bugle sounds, the first strong winds of Summer Eclipse Season 2019 begin to blow in.

The first of 2 eclipses, however, does not arrive until July 2; nevertheless, the Full Moon in Sagittarius this week on Monday the 17th opens up the Eclipse Season. And Summer Solstice is also this week on Friday the 21st.

Summer Solstice on the 21st is at 11:54 AM EDT. This day is the day when light is at its greatest and dark is at its least.  But dark minutes start growing right after the Summer Solstice and light begins to retreat.

Summer Solstice is also the beginning of having the Sun in Cancer for the next 30 days. The Sun in Cancer, the sign of Mother nature, shows us a time when Nature is in full bloom at its most abundant.  Cancer is a sign of nurturance, like a Mother feeding a baby.

Cancer likes to be taken care of or to take care of others, and at its best loves unconditionally.  At its worst it lacks boundaries and can hover over those it loves, giving them little room to breathe- hence the word s-mother.

This is a good month to be with family, whatever family truly means to you.  Being supportive and being supported is in line with Cancer too.

The next 9 months or so will thrust us forward into new dimensions of Love and Truth, even as darker realities burst some bubbles of our illusions.

This Summer Eclipse Season 2019 will last into August, and it will bring with it the beginning of presidential debates in preparation  for Election Day in November 2020.

Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 will be a climactic time period, which will include the powerful and important Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12, 2020.  That conjunction will be right after and conjunct the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon In Cancer on January 10, 2020. (See webinar information below).

Right now, this week we awaken our spirits and souls with the Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius, which is only one day after an important Jupiter/Neptune square.  That square has Jupiter in Sagittarius (its favorite place to be) squaring Neptune in Pisces (its favorite place to be) on Sunday June 16.

And both Jupiter and Neptune are part of the signature of the Sagittarius Full Moon the next day on June 17.  Jupiter is widely conjunct the Moon, while Neptune in Pisces is square that Moon.

This is a lot of energy opening up. It may feel chaotic at times for some. Others may experience an opening into spiritual dimensions, with increased signs and synchronicities from the Universe.

The Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon is usually one that opens up the mind and stimulates a need to find resolution, meaning and understanding, even in the face of much information to sort out.

Lively conversation is usually opened up during this Sag Full Moon.  Jumping to conclusions is common during this lunation.  Enhanced intuition and rapid fire thinking are common at this full moon.

With Jupiter and Neptune also involved, some will get confused and/or out of usual mental balance.

If you can surrender your need to keep an agenda or fixed paradigm, you may open to new perceptions and judgments that will assist your growth.

And surrender is a good strategy for this week, a surrender to something greater and to a bigger picture of what is happening.

You may also this week get a good sense of what this Summer Eclipse Season is all about for you and for our world.  What issues are needing to be focused on?  What needs to be changed or transformed?  What needs to be released? What do you need to let in?

Eclipse Seasons always shake us out of status quo reality and thinking. They take us off our usual balance so we can be more vulnerable to growing and evolving. They bring a greater energetic intensity too.

Besides the Solar Eclipse on July 2, there is a Lunar Eclipse on July 16; and mixed in with it all is Mercury being Retrograde from July 2 through July 31.

Back to this week: We have Jupiter square Neptune on Sunday June 16 (though it will be felt most of the week); Mercury making aspects to Neptune, Jupiter, and Saturn- also on the 16th.

Neptune is slowing down now to go Retrograde on Friday the 21st- the same day as the Summer Solstice. When a planet slows down to change directions its energy is much stronger. Confusion, chaos, as well as deeper insight and psychic abilities are enhanced with a strong Neptune. The Inner Kingdom beckons.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius is on the 17th, merging with the aforementioned Neptune aspect of the 16th. It may be too easy for some to be overwhelmed with information and details now.

It may also be challenging for some to find truth within all the clashing information and energy shifts.

That search for truth is our reality most of the time now. Everyone (most especially news media) is pushing an agenda and few seem to be interested in what is real or true if it does not fit into the agenda.

On Wednesday the 19th the conjunction of Mercury and Mars opposes Pluto.  That is a very intense combination and very powerful.  There is more likelihood to be involved in a war of words this week in our personal life conversations. Anger is too easy to feel and express now- be careful.

Even more dangerously, a war of words out in the world is getting more likely now.  Even before this week, the USA and Iran have been thrust into near war.

The USA leadership is obviously setting us up for war with Iran, as it did similarly with Iraq and Libya. Remember Iraq being said to possess weapons of mass destruction?

Can “we the people” be that stupid again?  The USA and Western World made an agreement with Iran under the Obama administration, and Iran is said to have complied.

Trump unilaterally “tore up” the agreement and now through increasing sanctions is pushing Iran into extreme economic  difficulty.

We have made greater enemy of Russia and China also, with economic sanctions and tariffs on each of them.

Remember however, that all this Old World separation and enemy making is not our future. We are needing a deep purge of this old fecal matter from our collective unconscious.

The dark in our world is growing inside its walls of separation, while at the same time light is pushing through the cracks of those walls, wanting to inspire us to leave the darkened walls and to create a new world out in the fields of Nature.

That Nature so needs our loving embrace now, and we need its embrace too.  The technological world we are building must stop its movement away from having healthy bodies and a healthy Earth to live on.

Technology has a very important role in the Age of Aquarius, but without a healthy Earth and healthy human bodies and souls to cradle it, all will vanish.

These next 9 months are crucial for what will happen on Election Day and after.

Let’s get a good start on it all this week as Summer Eclipse Season 2019 commences, as Summer Solstice occurs too.

The “reality” of the mainstream culture is distorted and toxified now.   It is an old paradigm that we have been programmed into.

George Orwell was divinely inspired to write the book 1984.  Look around at our world now. So many have forgotten how to truly think for themselves, on both sides of thinking.  There is a conservative agenda’s mantra to follow and uniform to wear. And there is a liberal political correctness to follow and uniform to wear.

The New Age thrusts us outside the boxes, so we can think and feel for ourselves

Remember the movie Truman’s World with Jim Carrey?  He was programmed from birth to believe real life was what he was experiencing every day. But his “real life” was just a set for the TV program he was constantly the star of, 24 hours a day- every day.  His view of nature was in reality a made up television set.  On the edges of the set, however unbeknownst to him, curtains could be opened to view and enter true Nature and the Real World.

There is no Age of Aquarius until enough people have left the programmed set and seen the beauty and wonder beyond the walls.

Info on this week’s webinar below.  Regular Podcasts/Radio Show to soon follow.

Till next week

Truth and Lies and Astrology forecast June 2-8

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 1, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

There is a New Moon in Gemini on Monday June 3 at 6:02 AM EDT.  On June 2 we are under a dark Moon, and that will also be true on the day of that New Moon in Gemini on the 3rd.

In fact new moons, signifying new beginnings, do not really start until we can see a sliver of lunar light.  That will be no later than the evening of June 4.

During dark moons, it is usually a prime time to meditate with affirmations and/or visualizations, to make strong intention of whatever is important to you at the time.

This New Moon in Gemini shows us a good time for giving, attending, creating, and planning for classes, webinars, workshops etc.  It is also a good time for reading and studies.

Gemini is “ruled” by Mercury, called the messenger of the gods; so Gemini time periods are about working with issues of communication.  Gemini loves words, so for most Gemini’s writing and talking are very important to them.

Gemini is an air sign, and as such it is in the head a lot , concentrating  on thinking and figuring out.  Air signs are also often social butterflies, seeking light and care free social interactions.  Gemini is the air sign most like that butterfly who goes from flower to flower, more so than the other two air signs Libra and Aquarius.

And Gemini needs many interests, and being that way motivates many of them to go from one thing to another,  even one thought to another, or one person to another.

When they are in their normal rhythm they are light and airy, effortlessly delivering information to others and bringing in new information too.  They are fact based and detail oriented.

The challenge for many Gemini’s is to slow down or stop the “monkey mind”, especially during meditation. It can get overwhelmed with information being collected in its mind.

It loves a good mental challenge, and curiosity is one of its motivations for learning new things. It is the questioner, and it is in its default nature to question most everything.  Sometimes that means it is challenging someone’s information or opinion, but sometimes it is just geared to ask questions for no deeper reason.

So now as we move through the Gemini New Moon this week, it is a good time to think about classes, learnings, friendships, starting something intellectually stimulating, reading a new book, or getting up the courage to speak up and communicate what is on your mind. Gemini does not usually like emotional confrontations, however.

Not long after  this New Moon in Gemini, Congress will question AG Barr and/or special prosecutor Mueller, and others in preparation for impeachment.

The Military/Industrial Complex foundation is showing immense cracks, ready at any time to begin to crumble.

The stock market went way down last week, and war cries against Iran got much stronger.  The USA trade war with China and Mexico heated up last week, as did their war of words with China on other subjects. And North Korea is back up in the Empire’s consciousness as it shows increasing animosity for the USA administration.

I say all this to show you that over the next 9 months or so, Pandora’s Box will break open with some major world event(s), ones that will change the world.

Intensity increases during an Eclipse Season,  and this one will have its first breezes of change after this New Moon in Gemini.

The first actual eclipse will be on July 2,  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer at 10+ degrees.  The 2nd eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn at 24+ degrees.

But the most powerful shake-up will occur late Autumn 2019, early  Winter 2020.  It is a huge turning point for the world. That Eclipse Season will open The Box if not yet opened.

Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn will make its only exact conjunction in January 2020, the day after a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon as Uranus goes direct that day also.  (Webinar I am giving on June 22 will talk about all that, the powerful changes in the world as a result, and a look at each participant’s chart to see how they may each be affected in their own personal life.  Noon-4:30 $120.) Write me at soulus@aol.com to sign up.

There is no way anymore that we can put bandaids on the big issues and conflicts.  They are all coming to a head, so to speak.  There are so many enlightening waves of energy filled with hope and the magic of Universal signs and synchronicities under the rock solid box of an old world’s status quo. That box is breaking open soon and dark and light will all be released together for each of us to sort through in our consciousness.  The Age of Aquarius is a creation made from it all.

This week with the New Moon in Gemini, new information will begin to make itself known.   Facts greater than all the lies and fabrications will be available to those aligned and looking for truth.

Neptune is square to the New Moon in Gemini, so there will some confusion and distortions to work through.  If you can let go and surrender your left brain need to obsessively get to the logical truth, what you need to know will unfold itself and present itself when you are ready to receive.

Each media source operates more from an agenda than from a desire for the facts and truth.   Julian Assange represents someone who has worked to get the truth of what our governments and authorities hide from “we the people”.

These “authorities” are trying to silence him or put him away. He now is extremely sick and maybe even dying. He represents freedom of the press and its duty to deliver us truth beyond the programming. Now each of us must be responsible to find these truths for ourselves.

Look closely and deeply this month for what is true and what is not, and do not let your political persuasion influence you.  This Gemini lunar cycle is mainly about the facts and communication of them. Next month the Eclipses shake things up and out of same-old, same-old.

Till next week

Getting Ready and Astrology Forecast May 26-June 1

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on May 25, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It must be pretty obvious now to most everyone that we are on the cusp of enormous change and transformation in the United States and in the greater world.

Countries are becoming more nationalistic and self serving;  religions are at war with one another; liberal and conservative cultures seem to have little middle ground of connection between them.

These countries that are becoming more nationalistic are beefing up their militaries and rapidly finding enemies and allies. They are sending out messages of aggression to one another. This is how major wars have always begun. The Middle East is a tinder box susceptible to being ignited. Iran is heating up as it is in the cross hairs of the USA and Israel.

The economy is gearing up for major declines in the stock market, and there are trade wars that keep heating up, especially between China and the USA.

The Old World has a paradigm of “every man  for himself”, “dog-eat-dog”, “survival of the fittest”  separatism.   This belief system all too often sees making relationship, love, empathy and compassion as weaknesses or naivete.

It sees compromise as losing one’s toughness; giving in as “blinking first” and losing.

And right now those old world beliefs are strong in the minds and hearts of so-called leaders in the world.

It is easy to be made to feel like a “snow-flake”, illogical dreamer, or an innocent child for believing in the connections, believing we live in a sacred and meaningful world, believing we humans are all members of the same family, or believing we are in transition between ages.

But anyone who is evolving and has seen the light knows that those who built and believe in those old age ways of separation are the ones who don’t get it. They are pushing us all to mutual destruction.

But we also know that the Old World is taking its last gasps of dominance on this planet, soon delivering the members of that old world into an historical container that is already inhabited by dinosaurs and the like.

Our survival is now dependent on humans evolving into a consciousness that knows we all need to come together as ONE in order to survive.  We each need to find our distinct authentic individuality and from there find unity: Diversity within Unity.

We have no more time to take for granted the Earth Mother who has brought us into the world.

We can no longer see the Sky Father as merely a scientific material combination of unrelated stars and planets and galaxies in a “governed by chance” Universe.

We are ready for the coming challenges, ready to co-create as our worlds open up; moving  out of our status-quo cages that have been built by the programming of an old paradigm and age.

Mid June will bring us the first winds of Summer Eclipse Season 2019.  Saturn/Pluto will be getting closer in their conjunction with one another.

Mid December will bring us the first winds of Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020.

That second season will bring us the exact conjunction of Saturn/Pluto along with two powerful eclipses.  There will then be a most rapid acceleration of transition between ages.  (I am now scheduling a webinar for Saturday June 22 from noon-4:30 PM EDT.  We will look at Saturn/Pluto, its history and effect on our human condition then and now. And I will give interpretation for each webinar participant concerning the effect of Saturn/Pluto in their own charts and lives. In this webinar we also take a peek at the next presidential election in November 2020, and an outlook on the economy and the condition of our lives going forward: fee $120 with 1 scholarship offered for those most in need. Write me at soulus@aol.com for more info and to sign up.)

This week we move into the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Taurus on May 4.

This last quarter Moon begins in Pisces on Sunday May 26 this week.  That Pisces Moon seeks inner reflection and connection with one’s sensitivity and need to “go with the flow.  The fast mind and nervous system of Sun in Gemini will challenge that flow.

This last quarter lunar cycle this week shows us a Moon getting slimmer and slimmer, bringing us into the dark inner star-studded sky of surrender.

It is time to let go this week of attachments, and get ready for new beginnings next week at the Gemini New Moon on Monday June 3.

Mercury and Venus this week both connect with Neptune and Jupiter, helping our relating skills if we are high-minded and looking for meaning and magic.

The Trump voyage to impeachment gets more real each week, as at the same time the USA connections with the world around it get more and more separating and distant. But it has some new “friends” now.

One of the USA’s best national “friends” now is Saudi Arabia.  Saudi Arabia treats women like dirt. Women only recently are being considered for the right to drive a car..

A female women’s rights activist there was jailed a year ago and flogged, electrocuted,  rape threatened, and water-boarded. Her  crime was being an activist for women being able to drive and to overhaul the Male Guardianship over women in Saudi Arabia.

Why is there no outcry for human rights and women’s rights in Saudi Arabia?

There is such a need for revolution and evolution now in alignment with Age of Aquarius values.

As the old world shows its ugly head now more and more, the cracks in its foundation create more space for the light of a New Age to shine through.

Concentrate on that light in your meditations, feel it penetrating your body, mind and soul.  It is as bright as the old world dramas are dark.

Release that darkness and decay from inside your old world programming, and open more and more to the light of the Age of Aquarius.

Love and Truth are its foundation and nothing can be stronger than that.

See you next week,

Leo

Also I will begin a Podcast/Radio show series on Monday June 3 at the Gemini New Moon. Summer Eclipse Season 2019 begins at that new moon, though the first eclipse will still be a month away.

Lighter and Darker and Astrology Forecast May 19-25.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 18, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As the Full Moon in Scorpio leaves our awareness after the weekend of May 18-19, we get ready to come down another notch into what is real in our lives.

The last half of the current lunar cycle begins this week as we view a Moon getting darker by the minute.  At the same time as the lunar cycle darkens, the solar cycle gives us in the Northern Hemisphere of Earth more light by the minute.

The Moon darkens until June 3, as the New Moon in Gemini that day begins the process of the Moon growing once again with more light every night.

At the same time, the Sun brings more light every day until the Summer Solstice on June 21, when the Sun stops at its highest place in the sky to shine the most light of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

Symbolically, the Sun represents the conscious intent for humans to shine, create, fully express, and succeed with utmost confidence.

Symbolically the Moon represents an inner, more instinctual intent to give and receive comfort and nurturance, to protect and express inner values of care and empathy.

So this week our inner and outer worlds are moving in vastly different directions.  Our collective conscious desire is to move with “glass half full” intent to get better and better in our relationship with the world.

Our collective soul/feeling desire is to feel what is natural for us to feel, even if that means sadness, grief,  or even feeling sorry for ourselves at times.

In the “world out there” there are many challenges.  The USA is digging in against its so-called enemies: Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, China, and Russia.   The USA has enacted or is a part of sanctions on all those countries. The USA Natal Mars in Gemini is triggered in May and June by Jupiter being directly opposite in Sagittarius.

No matter what is stated as motivation against these countries, the real reason for much of the conflicts is needs for more power and control, domination, and in some cases control over natural resources like oil and natural gas.

When Trump chose Bolton and Pompeo as integral leaders in his administration, most people knew that meant war was likely to come, as both those men are known to be military hawks hankering for a fight.

We are at a big turning point in our country and world now.  The next 9 months of so will  greatly determine the path we take over the next several years in regards to economy and war.

Especially important will be the next two Eclipse Seasons- in the Summer of 2019 and the Winter of 2019/20.

The Saturn/Pluto powerful configuration is getting closer and closer now, with their only exact conjunction being in January of 2020, which is the climax of their planetary relationship at this time.  Of course Eclipses will also be happening in January 2020, as well as July 2019.

This all will have great effect on our personal lives too. I am now scheduling a webinar for Saturday June 22 from noon-4:30 PM EDT.  We will look at Saturn/Pluto, its history and effect on our human condition then and now. And I will give interpretation for each webinar participant concerning the effect of Saturn/Pluto in their own charts and lives. In this webinar we also take a peek at the next presidential election in November 2020, and an outlook on the economy and the condition of our lives going forward: fee $120 with 1 scholarship offered for those most in need. Write me at soulus@aol.com for more info and to sign up.

Also I will begin a Podcast/Radio show series on Monday June 3 at the Gemini New Moon. Summer Eclipse Season 2019 begins at that new moon, though the first eclipse will still be a month away. 

Yes we now enter a most important time here on Earth, as the condition of consciousness for each of us is most important for the direction, condition, and quality of our entrance into The Age of Aquarius.

Yes this week we have moved into the “downhill” movement of the waning half of the lunar cycle begun on May 4 at the Taurus New Moon.

That next lunar cycle begins at the New Moon in Gemini on June 3. That is when Sun and Moon are conjunct at 12+ degrees of Gemini.

This week the Sun goes into Gemini on Tuesday May 21.  As we stated, the Moon will join the Sun in Gemini creating a New Moon in Gemini on June 3.

This week when the Sun leaves Taurus and enters Gemini, our intentions begin to be more mental and social and less physical and solitary.

Gemini stirs the mind and nervous system into more activity.  Needs to communicate get stronger, which for many means more talking.   But writing can also be a means to communicate now. People tend to both take classes and create classes during Gemini time.

Gemini rhythm is “information in- information out”- just the facts- no opinions, judgments or editorializing.   That is when Gemini is purely Gemini.

Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury, the “messenger of the gods”, and it works often by showing signs and symbols and synchronicites that the Universe sends so people can see what direction to move toward and get clearer information.

The mind can go really fast in Gemini and Gemini seeks much mental stimulation and varied interests.  With not enough mental stimulation it can be bored; with too much it can be overwhelmed.

Gemini is the Twins, and as such it has two distinctly different personalities. Sometimes that may feel like the good angel and bad angel, or like Jekyll and Hyde.  But usually it is not that drastically polarized.  But two distinctly different selves do exist in some form for them.

Mars sextiles Uranus in Taurus on May 22, and that may cause some mostly minor shake-up of same-old, same-old.

In personal lives, I know most of you have been experiencing much change, and/or you can feel much change under the surface and coming soon.

The Old World has one more huge gasp in trying to bring back the past and its old Paradigm (Make America Ghastly Again).

The great hope is that it does not cause too much harm and pain during that time.

Our challenge is to not be sucked up into the black hole vortex it creates.  If we do not allow ourselves to be devoured by too much fear or hatred, we will be fine.

Keep focused on how we are entering the Age of Aquarius.  Keep meditating and getting yourself healthier and healthier. Keep remembering that Love and Truth run our Universe, and be that Love and Truth as best you can.

Till next week,

Leo
