What is Real? and Astrology Forecast February 18-24

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 17, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week we passed through the second and last eclipse of this Winter 2018 Eclipse Season, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.

This Eclipse Season will continue however till about March 8.  More shifting tides are coming.   More processing of what has been shifting will happen after that until around April 15.

Then events will accelerate after that and new movement forward will begin.

There is a New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus on April 15.  And Mercury that day will go direct after a previous 3 weeks of being Retrograde.

And in the greater world, specifically the USA, Jupiter and Pluto will exactly sextile one another while making a Yod or “finger of god” aspect with the USA Mars.

This will be an important turning point in our world, related to what has been shifting during this Eclipse Season.

In the greater world, a Stock Market mini crash has happened during this Eclipse Season. And though it rebounded last week, the downfall is not over.  The mania of the Bull market is seeking to be revitalized, and it will for awhile.  Then the market will descend even more than before.

Events in the Middle East have intensified also during this Eclipse Season as Russia, Iran and Syria are getting in a danger zone with Israel and the USA.  And the Palestinians are affected by these changes also.

The Korea issue has been calmed down during the Winter Olympics as North Korea and South Korea are more peaceful with one another.  But this issue is far from settled.

And right at the Solar Eclipse New Moon, 13 Russians were indicted for tampering with the USA political process.  This triggers the cultural battle in the USA, and is the beginning swat of what will become a Watergate kind of investigation into the Trump administration  and Trump himself.

Also almost right at the Solar Eclipse there were 2 strong earthquakes and a solar storm directed to the Earth, and more significantly another horrific mass killing at a high school in Florida.

We are not doing anything in this country to remedy this kind of slaughter which is happening more and more often.

And this triggers the culture war in the USA again, as those who want guns to be more regulated are fought by the culture of the NRA, which seeks no controls at all.

It is hard to believe that there are people who see no reason to limit availability of weapons, like AR-14s,  that can only be used to kill people, especially as so many innocent people are being murdered now.

So what has been triggered during this Eclipse Season is the stock market and economy; the USA culture wars; the Middle East; and the Koreas.

All of these issues will break open even more soon, especially after April 15.

And in our personal lives and soul transformations, there is much that is breaking open and needing more of a sense of direction.

The Old Chapter is no longer here anymore, it is only in the past, except maybe in our hearts and souls and minds.

We are still cleaning out and releasing, but what is so difficult for so many is that the New Chapter has not fully shown itself yet.

Many of us are in limbo, having pretty much let go of the old season of our lives, but not fully clear on where we are going next into this New Chapter.

I believe it is in part because we need some world events and maybe personal events to occur that will show us where we need to go and what we need to do next.

Are you thinking of living somewhere else? Or shifting your sense of purpose, calling or career?  Are you not knowing where to go with a relationship in your life?  Are you waking to all new ways to see your self and life?

We are in transition, in flux, and much of what helps us to feel secure does not feel so secure now.

The world looks quite crazy to many now, and it does not feel very secure.  And for many their personal lives are not feeling very secure either.

As one who lived through the revolution of the 60s/70s, this all feels familiar.  So much was changing so rapidly, and it was difficult to know who we were anymore or where we were going.

And sexual and gender roles were changing so fast too then. And now many people are even struggling with whether they are a male or female.

All this is happening as we as a human species are rapidly evolving now, questioning what we have known and what we believe in.

And with internet news sources and social media information, it is not easy to know what is fact or fiction, what is only conspiracy theory and what is really true.

And of course now pictures or film or sound can be altered to be quite different than what is real.

Our metaphoric reality pictures are foggy now, to assist us in letting go of an old paradigm and age.

We are in transition between paradigms and ages, and can no longer grip so tightly what used to be reality.

Evolution of consciousness is accelerating now, and it can be difficult sometimes to go with the changes and at the same time keep our balance and stability.

Please know this: if something is not working in your life anymore, and you keep doing the same things over and over again, and it is still not getting better; then you need to be open to doing something hugely different, outside the box you are now in.

And though it may feel safe in the box or  closet you feel protected by, you will eventually lose the spirit that makes you feel alive if you stay there too long.

This week, still in Eclipse Season, we move into Pisces time of year, as the Sun goes into Pisces Sunday February 18.

This Pisces zone is a soul based world, in touch with feelings and frequencies beyond the material world.   Pisces is sensitive and sometimes selfless, losing itself in the “world inside the world”, the “kingdom within”, or in unselfish giving, drugs or alcohol.

Meditation and the world of pure consciousness is a healthy place for Pisces to go, as is music and the world of sound.

So now in Pisces time of year, let go of any strict agenda you may have, and surrender to the Soul and Universe, trusting that you can let go of needs to always be in control.

Sometimes we stay in our minds in order to feel in control, avoiding the feelings and inner world as they are more in the mystery of life, not fully in our control.

Venus makes conjunction with Pisces ruler Neptune on Wednesday the 21st, bringing more rose colored romantic viewpoints into our lives.  Keep your feet on the ground, but also allow the colors of the love rainbow to enter your heart and soul.

What our imagination creates is often a reality that can be made real and manifest too.  Relationships that come to us from a strong heart connection with someone, may have some infatuation to it, but for some reason brings us someone meant to be in our lives.

Maybe it is not the romantic or sexual fantasy it first evokes in us that is real, but yet it is still someone who is meaningfully appearing in our lives. Maybe they are from a past life or part of our soul family, or there for a need of karmic satisfaction or release.

The next planetary marking point will be the Full Moon next week on March 1, a Full Moon in Virgo.

Remember also that all planets are direct now, and will stay that way until March 8 when Jupiter goes Retrograde.  So whether you know it or not, you are moving forward on a soul level, even if you still feel stuck in your life.

Till next week

Leo

Riding the Eclipse Waves and Astrology Forecast February 11-17.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 10, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move through the 2nd and last eclipse of Winter Eclipse Season 2018:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.

This Eclipse Season will last into March, but there are no more eclipses beyond the one this coming week.

It has already been a most eventful Eclipse Season, mostly because of the severe downfall of the Stock Market.  We have been predicting that this would happen this year and likely in this Eclipse Season: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyIVxnMPGzI&feature=youtu.be

This will be the first blow to the stock market this year, and the beginning of the transformation of the USA and world economy.   The economy is part of the Military/Economic Complex that will be greatly transformed over the next few years as we transition into the Age of Aquarius.

As we move through the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius this Eclipse Season, the stock market will remain a huge concern.  Keep in mind that there will still be attempts to go back to the Bull Market mania, but those attempts will be short-lived.  We may ultimately be looking at something resembling the 1929 crash that brought on the financial challenges of the 1930s.

With Impeachment calls also getting louder this Eclipse Season, and counter attacks rising out of the FBI memo; we can expect the culture wars to exacerbate more and more.

There is not much connection between our political parties anymore, and this is reflective of the conflict going on between two very polarized cultures in the USA.

The Charlottesville uprising during last summer’s Eclipse Season was the first obvious sign of civil war since the Trump election.

Now as economic challenges intensify and impeachment cries get louder, civil war intensifies in the USA.

The Trump presidency will be in more and more trouble.  And so we need to be awake to the possibility of distraction created with war:  “Wag the Dog”  diversions in North Korea and Syria would be more likely.

Trump has his natal Mars triggered by the Aquarius Solar Eclipse this week just as it was at the Solar Eclipse in Leo last summer.  Does that mean he will be fighting for his political life with cries for his removal as President, and/or that he will be instigating conflicts as he did with North Korea last summer?

Know for sure that his natal Mars in Leo will be touched off in some big way. Already he is said to be calling for a huge military parade in D.C. to show off USA might.

Israel and Netanyahu are again having their natal Mars affected too by this Solar Eclipse.  War clouds will be forming over Israel, Lebanon, and Syria.  And Iran and North Korea are in the cross-hairs of the USA military. If they do not bow to demands they will be severely attacked one way or another.

And this Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius will be on Thursday February 15 at 4:05 PM EST.  It will be closely conjunct the USA natal Moon in Aquarius from its birth on July 4 1776. The Chinese Year of the Dog also begins after this Solar Eclipse.

Group creation, gatherings, group missions, and activism are aligned with this Solar Eclipse.  People connecting with the USA Moon in Aquarius values of free speech, democracy, equality, and diversity are the most positive outcomes, but for all not just Americans.

Social consciousness is being raised at the Aquarius Solar Eclipse New Moon, but one person’s social conscience may be totally different from another’s social conscience.

For instance you may feel having an abortion is a woman’s right and no one should be pontificating to her about what she should do with her own body and pregnancy. To another person killing a fetus is murder and that is their social conscience.

I have noticed during this Eclipse Season that people are being “taken to the edge” so they can be made aware that something needs to change.

Often we are able to just go along with how things have been for a long time, coasting in same-old, same-old habits that have become “comfortable”.

But now we are being taken off balance in order to address deep seated problems inside ourselves, in our health, in our jobs, in our relationships.

We can no longer “push under the rug” issues that we do no want to deal with.  It is time to act and make changes.

In many of these cases we are being pushed further forward into a New Chapter of our lives, and any blockages to that passage forward will give resistance to the process.

That resistance needs to be looked at and worked with, just as a blockage in one’s body and chakra system needs help to be released and transformed.

For some this Eclipse Season will be more graceful as they are ready for the changes.  Their challenge will be more about adjusting to the changes.

Many are in transition from their old normal toward a new normal in the New Chapter.  But for now they are in limbo, as the old normal is gone and the new normal has not been fully manifested yet.

That is not an easy place to be in.  It takes patience and faith to be able to sit in that space without too much stress.  You may want to push the river of the Universe to go faster. That will not work.  Or you may get overwhelmed with fear, depression, anxiety, or panic.   That will be relieved if you believe more strongly that all is happening for a reason and will turn out OK.

So now during this week of the Solar Eclipse, energies intensify and may feel as if they will erupt.

You are being taken off balance so you can be “on your toes” for change.

Most affected by this Solar Eclipse are Aquarians, especially those born February 10-18.  Leos also are more affected, especially those born August 15-23.

Scorpio and Taurus also affected, especially those born in the late degrees of those signs.

And of course all those born with other planets in those signs and degrees will also be affected.

Those who were most affected during last summer’s Solar Eclipse in Leo will be aligned for this eclipse also.

Please do not see this as negative or painful as most people affected will not feel that.

Many will feel liberated, awakened, and more open to the winds of change. They are seeing more truths and feeling more love. And those working through the blocks will also soon feel those same things.

Look at the winds of change bringing events into our world, events that are needed to transform our world more in line with the Age of Aquarius.  There are clues everywhere during Eclipse Season to what is coming our way soon.

It is more important than ever not to let fear overtake you now.  Do whatever it takes to be centered and grounded, yet still open and awake.

We were all born so we can be alive during this huge changing of Ages.  We have been here before and are needed again to honor Love and Truth during these tumultuous times.

Till next week,

A podcast will be broadcast soon, and then hopefully a radio show podcast sometime later.

Navigating Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast February 4-10.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are smack dab in the middle of Winter Eclipse Season 2018.  Last week was the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo.  The week after this one, on February 15, is the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.

We are always taken out of the same-old, same-old patterns of thought, emotions, or behavior patterns during Eclipse Seasons, and this one is no different.

As we are taken out of our normal patterns, we are on our toes and ready to meet the challenges and changes.

In the greater world the stock market downfall began last week.   This will continue.  Now it is possible and even likely that there will be gasps of manic energy reviving the stock climb, but it will be short lived as the overall direction is downward now, as we have stated before.

Before the end of the year, the value of stocks will be much less and the true condition of the economy will be more evident.  This is the beginning of the transformation of the Military/Economic Complex that runs the USA and much of the world.

This transformation will accelerate from 2018-2022, as at the same time the Age of Aquarius will be having its buds pushing through the branches of our world.

The Aquarius emphasis of the Eclipse Season will get even stronger as we move through the Aquarius Solar Eclipse New Moon on February 15.

That means that collective community efforts will get more powerful, and the push by Inspector Mueller to investigate the Trump administration will get more powerful too.   Notions of impeachment will become more than just notions.

The distraction of the FBI Memo will not stop the impeachment train from chugging forward.

So there are two collective efforts now, one more pushed by Democrats toward possible impeachment, and one more pushed by Republicans toward discrediting Clinton, Obama and Democrats for being in collusion with the FBI against Trump.

This is an extension of the culture wars that became more evident during the last Eclipse Season with Charlottesville.

And speaking of the connections between last eclipse season and this one, the North Korea issue is still red hot even though North and South Korea are having a peaceful get together at the Winter Olympics.

In my estimation the Trump administration is planning a hit on North Korea this year if North Korea does not promise to begin dismantling their nuclear program. And it is not likely that North Korea will do so.

And keep an eye on the Middle East this Eclipse Season also, as the Trump decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has not felt the full vehemence against that decision yet.

The Me-Too movement, getting further mileage with the convictions against Larry Nasser for sexually abusing so many young girls, is not done yet by a long shot.

Any group missions you have now, or socially conscious groups you plan on joining forces with, will have the winds of the Universe blowing at your back for forward movement.

Sometimes during these Eclipse Seasons events happen that seem to be taking one backward and into negative places.

From a bigger picture this is necessary in the process of transformation, as more purging is needed of old attitudes, beliefs, and ways of being from the past.

One’s demons or ghosts from the past often need to be seen in the light of day in order to integrate those shadow parts of self in a more constructively holistic manner.   Demons locked in closets are ultimately much more dangerous.

But if you keep seeing your life from “glass half-full” viewpoints, you will see the synchronicities, feel the magic, and know the Universe is talking to you.

When you recognize the Universe is speaking to you with its signs, symbols, and guide posts; you will then be more able to act in accordance with the Universe, using your intentions to co-create your life.

This is why it is important to not be controlled by the programmed world paradigm.  That programming tends to keep us locked in fear, not truly able to recognize the Universe/the Gods/God/Goddess/spirit/soul/spirit guides/angels (or whatever your belief system calls it) talking to you to help you on your path.

You are never alone, though sometimes it feels one has been abandoned by the God-force.   That is when we have dark nights of the soul that make us feel so alone without meaning.

We live in a meaningful Universe, helping us to evolve and contribute to the world and human family on our sacred Earth.

If  you see through the eyes of the old paradigm, you see everything that happens as random, run by good or bad luck.  And you will hear in the background of your mind  mental tapes of “Us versus Them”, good guys versus bad guys, male against female,  dark versus light, Judeo/Christian versus Muslim, hetero versus homo,  etc.

Yes we have opposites but they are connected at a deep level and though they may butt heads sometimes, they are together as One.

Nothing can truly unglue the circle of wholeness, except us in our own minds and hearts.  The Moon stays round, the Sun shines, Earth keeps alive no matter what we think or do.

But we can self destruct and eliminate ourselves. And that happens if we hate ourselves or others.

We are complicated as humans, not good or bad, just what we are.  We can make the best of what we are and what we have been given; or we can judge and separate our selves as good or evil. That battle will destroy us as we will hate a part of ourselves that we judge as bad or good.

And do you not think it is revealing that every side thinks it is the good ones and those they oppose are the bad or evil ones. North Korea and Iran demonize us and we demonize them. Is one right and the other wrong? Or are both victims of an old paradigm that separates by demonization, and then seeks to destroy the “bad guys”.

Once Germany and Japan were the evil ones and now they are good because they are on our side now.

Lets wake up now and know we are all one, with many different faces: Equal in the eyes of the Universe- creating Diversity Within Unity. Age of Aquarius.

Till next week and the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius

Beginning Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast January 14-20.

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

A portal opens this week to initiate Winter Eclipse Season 2018.   Though the first actual Eclipse is a couple weeks away, the New Moon in Capricorn January 16 marks the energetic opening of Eclipse Season.

These last few weeks have been rather difficult for many as the recent prevalence of Capricorn/Scorpio energies has tended to drop people into what is real and needs to be processed or acted upon.  There has been little room for escape or distraction.

And energies have been kept down and inward as we have been in the 4th quarter part of the lunar cycle this last week.

But you will have more energy to move actively forward after January 16 at 9:17 PM EST. at the Capricorn New Moon.

As all planets are also going Direct now, that adds to the ability to move forward; this continues until March 8 when Jupiter goes Retrograde.

This New Moon in Capricorn is the  first New Moon since Uranus went Direct on January 2,  which began the movement of All Planets Direct.

So this is a significant New Moon, especially so as it begins Eclipse Season.

New Moons always bring energy for starts, new beginnings, action and movement.   And as the Full Moon brings climax and/or some resolution to what begins at the New Moon, one can see how the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on January 31 is an extension of the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Capricorn this week.

So what begins for you or begins in the world this week, after the New Moon in Capricorn, will give indication of what Eclipse Season will tend to bring.

Capricorn is the sign “ruled” by Saturn, and as such signifies “It is Time”.  There is really  nowhere else to go when it is time.  Saturn is considered by some the hand of fate.   Whether that fate is determined by some force outside ourselves, or is meant to be by  karmic “what goes around comes around” reality is open to one’s interpretation.

Capricorn is also the best sign for making a certain goal, organizing plans to accomplish that goal, and having the discipline to carry out that plan.

Capricorn is used best if the plan is carried out step by step, more methodically than impulsively.

You are ready now to make real your dreams and ideals, your goals and desires.  Only you can stop that train from beginning its journey now. Just keep in mind that the plan will take time to fully unfold and manifest- no  quick fixes.

In the greater world look for clues as to what this eclipse season will bring. Look for hints in the stock market and economy, look for signs of what will  happen in the Middle East and Korea.

That does not mean to focus on those events, but from a detached place to recognize what may happen in the 3D world, as some call it.

Your focus is best placed on your soul’s journey and the bigger picture of what is transforming in your life and in the world.

Those likely chaotic events coming to the world are part of the process that will take us to our new world and Age of Aquarius.

Donald Trump is in the world to be a catalyst for great change and transformation.  His presence is taking us outside old boxes and awakening us to what has been wrong in our world and country.

He represents much of what needs to change, and how we need to stand up for what we believe, no matter the pressure to give in.

Ultimately we are learning to connect the opposites, and connect the dots in the Universe to find meaning in all situations.

Dark and light, male and female, yin and yang, homosexual and heterosexual, all meant to be connected though inherently so different. This is the core of Diversity within Unity, a call phrase for the Age of Aquarius.

So  if you let hate run your attitude you are severing the threads that connect.  That does not mean being all nice and sweet. Of course you need the passion to fight for what you believe and what you are;  but just like in a good family you keep the thread of connection inside yourself no matter how estranged or angry you become.

Though it is hard to see sometimes, we are all members of the  human family, even though  you may be among those who are beginning to mutate into being a more evolved version.

If we keep the US versus THEM paradigm, we will eventually destroy ourselves and the planet, as weapons of mass destruction are spreading all over the globe.

Finding what unites us, even though so different, will bring sanity and  peace to the world.

Do we need to be taken to the edge before we collectively wake up?  Soon we will know the answer.

Just before the New Moon in Capricorn, energies will already become more active, as Uranus squares Venus and the Sun, while Jupiter makes an intense sextile to Pluto.

Uranus is strong Saturday and Sunday and Jupiter/Pluto Monday and Tuesday.  That means surprises, and wake up  calls (Uranus), and intense stirring of passions (Jupiter/Pluto).

Remember that Eclipse Season is beginning now, getting us ready for the actual eclipses.  Eclipses shake things up out of same-old, same-old, and tend to bring breakdowns of the old habits and patterns, and/or breakthroughs into new realms, new vistas and dimensions.

Have you noticed the increased focus on extraterrestrial and UFO’s in the mainstream of society lately?  That egg is just starting to crack open now.

We will of course give greater attention to Eclipse Season now.  In that regard please check out this video forecast I just created: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyIVxnMPGzI&feature=youtu.be

It is time for the intensity of transformation to increase. It is time to be even more committed to your Higher Self and the path into a New Age. Pressures to be fearful and/or hateful will get even stronger this Eclipse Season.  Stand up for what you believe in, but do not make hated enemy. It keeps the old paradigm alive.

Trump will tighten up his defenses as pressure on him increases. There is no telling what he will do when backed into the corner of possible impeachment or otherwise attempts to “dethrone” him.

Sure seems like his soul has been here before (emperor, king) and so have we been here before with dictators, kings, queens, etc

The Age of Aquarius makes necessity for “we the people” to be responsible for the world and human family, not a team of the privileged few who abuse power to take what they want from the Earth and our human family. That paradigm is getting ready to die; and not just the few, indeed all of us have been playing its game for hundreds of years.

We all are responsible for the creation and perpetuation of that old paradigm, and we all are responsible for co-creating the new paradigm.

Till next week when we look more closely at Trump’s chart for coming events.

Making it Real and Astrology Forecast January 7-13

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 6, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This last week was meant to be a wake-up call (Uranus Direct) that motivates us to get  outside old boxes in our minds, hearts, and lives. 

In so doing, we release that which has blocked our way, and we are then liberated from the chains of old beliefs, decaying patterns, and crusty habits of living and expressing.

We are getting ready to make the needed changes that will help us to lead our lives in a more aligned and authentic way.  It is time for “out with the old,  get ready for the new.”

2018 has just begun, and will take us further forward on a ride of transition between the old and new- in our personal lives and in our global lives.

This week the intensity amps up and seriousness gets stronger.  That which is frivolous, superficial, or light and airy will have little space in our life rooms for expression.

It might be needed and would be appreciated, but it is not what we are being presented with energetically this week.

On Saturday eve Mars conjuncts Jupiter in Scorpio, which increases intensity and emotional volatility.   That intensity and seriousness will extend into Sunday and all through next week, as Sun and Venus in Capricorn make sextile to Jupiter in Scorpio; Mars in Scorpio makes sextile to Pluto in Capricorn; Sun and Venus in Capricorn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn; Moon in Scorpio from mid day Tuesday till Friday; and finally  Jupiter in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Scorpio on the 15th.

You will notice that all these planets and configurations are in Capricorn and Scorpio.

Those two signs “get down to business”, see at the core of truth, are very focused, and do not like time wasted by the trivial and superficial.

And most of all,  those two signs are about being REAL.  So this coming week, it will be difficult to avoid and escape.  Work is good.  Going to your personal underworld is good.  Being serious is aligned. Logical and organized is good.  Getting to what is important is needed.  Being present is required.

This week energies are yin, so we move yin-ward, so to speak; and this is especially so beginning late Monday as we enter the 4th and last quarter phase of the Moon’s cycle.

That 4th quarter will last until January 16 at the Capricorn New Moon.

So this week gives us mostly Capricorn and Scorpio.  Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which rules gravity. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto which rules the underworld.   

So you can see that movement is down to Earth and down under the Earth’s surface.  And that is what is happening for each of us too.

It is time to make things real, to make things work, to be more involved with manifesting (or at least making serious plans to manifest), building,  and grounding your ideas and ideals, your dreams, and your future plans.

In the greater world, issues will get more real there too.  It should be easier to see the grounded truths, without so much BS or fluffy marketing and spinning of the truth.

The stock market might also be getting a reality check, as might the economy in general.

Bubbles are ready to be broken, in our minds and in the world.

If you have wanted to talk frank and real- with authority- to someone in your life, this is a time to do it.  Honesty is now the best policy, especially with yourself.

What needs to be made real, to be faced straight on in your life?  There is no running away now, it is time.

There will be a potential explosiveness wanting to rise from the depths at times this week also.  Be aware of what is boiling beneath the surface of your mind and emotions.

Do your best to be in control of your expression of it.  Otherwise something may trigger its ugly expression, as you will lose control.

There is much beneath the surface that wants to come up to be expressed and dealt with now.

Then you can release it, let it go, purge it.  Do not judge it, just release it.  That will clear out inner blocks in your psyche, chakra system, and body, so you can move forward without so much inner baggage. Then you can reintegrate, re-center, and align with your Soul, Higher Self, and Universe.

Then on the 16th at the Capricorn  New Moon, there is movement forward, movement that is organized and under control.

That New Moon also opens up Winter 2018 Eclipse Season.  

The first eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo on January 31.  Then there is another eclipse:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.

The Winter Olympics will be held in South Korea from February 9- February 25.

This is smack dab within the Eclipse Season, straddling the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on the 15th.

North and South Korea are planning to talk this week with one another, this week of seriousness.  This will be getting them ready for the Olympics in Korea, but also will assist the movement of negotiations between them on the nuclear issues.

I know this: If the USA goes ahead with military drills with South Korea this winter, there will be war. If they do not just postpone, which they are doing for the Olympics, but also cancel the drills, and North Korea stops doing nuclear tests; then conditions will be set for a more peaceful potential.

And you can also expect other difficult world situations to get more serious too now, like in Iran where massive protests have broken out, or in Israel/Palestine where Jerusalem has become an explosive issue.

And the explosive potential is there this week in the world and in our own emotional body.

This can be a very good week for setting a foundation or making grounded reality for your life and for what you want to build and manifest in this New Chapter of life.

All planets are now going Direct until March 8 when Jupiter goes Retrograde. So all systems are go now for building your new cycle of life.

Till next week,

New Year 2018 and Astrology Forecast December 31- January 6

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 30, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

This week we transition from 2017 into 2018. We begin the year with a bang as there is a Full Moon on January 1 and Uranus goes Direct on the 2nd.   And as Uranus goes Direct, there is the relatively rare occurrence of all planets in Direct motion.

Yes 2017 is ending. And what a year 2017 was for the United States and world.

It was the first year of the new Trump administration in the USA.  This of course created intense ripples all across the globe, as the USA has a great influence in the world.

The tone being set by Trump is replicated in other parts of the world, as nationalism is creating a serious counter to a growing globalism.

There is a separation, one nation from another, that is an outgrowth of nationalism

In the 1930’s nationalism created conditions that led to severe world conflicts, that led to World War II.

And now you can see again animosity building in nations who are defining their enemy lists.

Iran, North Korea, and Muslims in general are developing in the cross-hairs of the Trump USA world viewpoint.

Israel has become a staunch ally of the Trump administration, especially so as Trump declared Jerusalem the exclusive capital of Israel.

That declaration automatically erased the USA as a mediator between Israel and Palestine.  It also automatically pushed Iran and much of the Muslim world into serious opposition to the USA and Israel.

Battle lines are being drawn as the USA under Trump is wanting to eliminate regimes they cannot have influence over within their idea of world order.

Rome, so to speak, wants more power, and Caligula (Trump) desires greater dominance in the world.

You and I are already being programmed to see Iran and North Korea as enemies with monsters as their leaders (remember Iraq/Saddam and Libya/Gaddafi?).  We are being groomed to be blindly patriotic prior to the coming confrontations.

2018 intensity begins early this year.

Winter 2018 Eclipse Season begins on January 15 at the Capricorn New Moon, to be followed by  two eclipses: A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo on January 31 and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.

These eclipses are directly opposite the signs and degrees of the eclipses last August, and as such will counter those energies as well as provide a continuance of what happened during that time.

North Korea, Syria, Charlottesville were in the world spotlight then. Trump’s growing influence over world affairs was becoming more and more obvious.

And this new Eclipse Season, which will end in early March, will not only bring back the issues of North Korea, the Middle East, and culture wars in the USA; it will also show us some strong backlash against the Trump administration.

Will that mean impeachment proceedings begin or begin to look more immanent?  I will look more closely at all this in a 2018 Forecast Video and a 2018 Podcast, which will hopefully begin a series of “radio shows” this new year.

2018 will show the Trump agenda growing, while at the same time there is a growing anti-Trump movement.

And many people will focus their energies on their own consciousness and belief systems, while at the same time wanting to co-create the New World and Age.

Those people will see truth more deeply beyond the programming, and will experience the connections by hooking into the powerful frequencies of Love that will be growing in our energy fields and souls. Magic, meaning, synchronicity, and the Universe’s signs and symbols will be available to those who are awakening beyond the brick walls of the old paradigm.

From that place new communities are building,  communities devoted to Age of Aquarius values.  Fear and hatred do not rule that new age. Truth and Love do.

So this week, the first week of 2018 begins with a Full Moon in Capricorn/Cancer at 9:25 PM EST on New Year’s Day, combined with the energies of Uranus which changes to Direct motion on January 2. And of course all planets Direct in motion.

So there will be feelings of new beginnings, greater than the usual feeling of new year beginnings.

But I do not mean New Year alcohol inspired mania. I mean feelings of breaking out and breaking through, of liberation from what holds you back.  And for many this means true desires to be free of the old ways, old patterns, stuck lives, and old paradigm.

Use this Full Moon and especially Uranus to see outside the boxes, and to see the changes you can make this year.

This New Year’s Day Full Moon has the Sun in Capricorn opposite the Moon in Cancer.

So your accomplishment world outlook and your personal world in-look will be counter to one another.  Can you now balance your work and career with family and home?  Which one needs more of your attention now?

The one that needs more attention will create events to force you to focus on it.  But remember that Uranus is strong now too, so you can go outside the usual boxes in order to find new ways to be.

You do not need to be victim to the  old family patterns or old inner stuck thinking  or feeling.

And you can now begin to liberate your self from work or career that keeps you imprisoned in old ways. Start making plans for how you will lead a life more attuned to your authentic self and a more meaningful life.

Since this is Sun in Capricorn time of year, making a plan to make the needed changes is a good way to proceed.

Later this week, Mars in Scorpio will make conjunction with Jupiter in Scorpio.  Though exact next Saturday January 6, you may experience that very intense energy a few days  before and after the actual conjunction.

There is much passion in this conjunction, and of course passion can be used positively and negatively.  If you find passion for living your life, that is positive; but some will instead get into big eruptions of emotion.

And even then perhaps that is needed to express what you have been holding in, which will hopefully clear the air between people.  Or perhaps your passion will help you to empower your self in ways that are necessary to your growth and evolution.

And in the world, events with conflict eruptions become more likely.

In your personal life and with your emotions,  stay aware of this volatile energy below the surface.   You may then be more able to sidestep ugly blowups that will only be destructive.

So this first week of 2018 will initiate us into the new year.  If you stay aligned with your Higher Self leading your way, that will set the tone for this new year.

And yes Mercury is firmly direct now, giving us more potential clarity and less breakdowns of machinery and technology.

And with all planets now Direct, there is less need to reflect and ponder, or to make excuse for staying stuck.

till next week

Half Full or Half Empty and Astrology Forecast December 17-23

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 16, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The man-made border between years, this transition time between 2017 and 2018, is fast approaching.

I say man-made because nature was not “consulted” in picking January 1 as the beginning of a new year.

In some other countries the first day of spring is considered the beginning of the new year. And of course Spring does feel like new vital energies erupting, like a new beginning.  And the sign that begins every spring is Aries, an obvious generator of new starts.

I think that says much about our culture and its lack of respect for nature, for natural cycles and seasons.

We all too often lead our lives based on what we are expected to do, what we should do, what we desire to do, what the rules or conventional culture “tells” us to do.

In contrast, Astrology is part of nature, of natural cycles and seasons, part of the grand movements of our solar system and Universe.

And this week, which will lead to the holiday season, shows us a turning of tides, a shifting of natural energies.

We are awakened from our collective nap at the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 18 at 1:30 AM EST.

Then on December 21 we enter Winter Solstice at 11:28 AM EST. That same day, there is a very rare occasion- Saturn will be conjunct that Winter Solstice point.

Then on December 22, the much awaited Direct movement of Mercury occurs at 8:51 PM EST.

During Mercury Retrograde many shifted their thinking or questioned their previous decisions and chosen directions.

Now after Mercury goes back Direct, and giving it a week or so to go back to normal speed, you will be able to assess if that change of mind sticks or if you need to go back to what was originally chosen.

For some, people and/or memories floated back into their consciousness or life, giving  another perspective on issues in our life.

After Mercury goes back Direct, the fog will begin to lift, clarity will begin to appear.

However, around the day that Mercury actually goes back Direct, it can be especially confusing or disorienting. Let the process play out before jumping to conclusions.

Mercury going Direct will feel like new beginnings, but so will the New Moon in Sagittarius.

The New Moon in Sagittarius on the 17th/18th is a fiery new moon.  Sagittarius is fire that moves where it is inspired to go.  People with a strong Sagittarius influence are free spirits , wanting to follow their intuition, their inspiration, their sense of adventure.

Their challenge is to not leap before they look, to not be too impulsive, to not be so cock sure their opinion is always right.

As we all experience the New Moon in Sagittarius, we will begin to feel joy and upliftment.

Yet to counter that upward spiral of spirit, we are still experiencing the downward spiral of darker and darker days on the way to Winter Solstice on the 21st.

So we may feel a bit torn between hope and optimism one minute, then sadness or negativity later.

Our glass of life is in the process of a changing perspective from half empty to half full.

As we get closer to the Winter Solstice on the 21st, the day is getting darker and darker.  Heavy Saturn goes into its “home” sign of Capricorn on the 19th, just two days before the Winter Solstice Sun in Capricorn on the 21st.

Then later that same day, Saturn in Capricorn conjuncts the Winter Solstice Sun in Capricorn.

That may bring some sadness, some feelings of depression, a negative outlook on life.

But if you stay present for the turn toward the light at 11:28 AM EST on the 21st, you may feel the subtle shift energetically toward more light  minutes of the day.  And the light keeps growing until Spring Equinox when light and dark become equal.

So as the light comes back, the Sun does not open to light as easily as it normally does on Winter Solstice. That is because of Saturn in Capricorn making conjunction with the Winter Solstice Sun.

Saturn stops the full expression of whatever it touches. It is gravity. It is the hand of time. It is rules and responsibilities.

We are still in the reach of the New Moon in Sagittarius, however, so we may be in a loop between manic and depressed, so to speak

Please do not let the situations in the world get you down or feeling hopeless.   Everything is in meaningful order.

We are undoubtedly feeling the cracking open of the concrete structure of the Military/Industrial complex.

Change is wanting to pour in through those cracks which are getting bigger and more plentiful all the time.

This splitting apart is causing huge divisions between cultures, religions, nations, genders, etc.

In America it is being felt as a big split between the left culture and the right culture. There is little thread between them to keep them together.

The yin/yang symbol of wholeness is splitting in two within the old Paradigm.

Get out of the Old Paradigm and its wars. Do not be so quick to choose sides.  In the New Paradigm all is connected, diverse but connected. There is no demonizing of those who are different than us.

There is a much stronger rope between the differences. The yin/yang symbol is whole. There is still black and white, male and female, yin and yang. But those opposites are part of a wholeness of Unity.

This is the Age of Aquarius with its Diversity within Unity.

So don’t see the good guys or girls versus the bad guys or girls. The enemy is not North Korea or Iran or China or Muslims.  The enemy is not white men or conservatives or Christians or people from red states, or on the contrary liberals or African Americans or LGBTQ peoples.

Do not be a part of the cracking concrete of the Old Paradigm of US Versus Them.

Yes stand up for what you believe is right, but don’t be part of a war against those who think differently.

Trust that everything is happening for a reason, that an old world is transitioning into a New World, the Age of Aquarius.

You don’t have to kill the members of the Old World, evolution happens naturally.

Quit thinking Trump all the time like the media does. Trump loves that much attention.  He is not the enemy.  What he represents is what we need to release on a very deep level of our collective consciousness

The MeToo revolution is so needed in our world now, but if it turns to men versus women it loses its way.

There is an old paradigm that believes that those in power and privilege can do what they want and can abuse that power and take whatever they want.

Men and women have both bought into that belief system. Are men predators and women prey?  Are men the perpetrators and women the victims?

What needs to be transformed is believing that is true. And so many men and women deeply believe that as they have been conditioned to believe.

We may have developed that as part of an old paradigm, but in nature it is not true, inherently it is not true.

But if you buy into it, it becomes true for you.

Mercury goes Direct on the 22nd at 8:51 PM EST. Feel the shift and feel the relief. It has been a very difficult Mercury Retrograde this time for many.

As it ends feel the gears in your mind beginning to shift back.   It is a good time to gather our senses, to bring our selves to sanity in this often insane world, and to make our better values our highest priority.

Till next week,

Leo
