Staying on the Path and Astrology Forecast September 4-10

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 3, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo has now passed, but we are still very much within the Eclipse Season. There is another eclipse on September 16: a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Pisces.

I know many of you noticed that right on the day of the eclipse on September 1 Hurricane Hermine hit Florida; there was a 7.2 Earthquake in New Zealand; and there was a terrorist attack in the Philippines.

The intensity was very strong leading up to the eclipse. Now as we are a few days past it, the intensity has lessened.    But that does not mean that powerful world events will stop too.  We can expect big world events to continue all the way through September at least.

In fact there was a 5.6 earthquake in Oklahoma on Saturday the 3rd of September.  The USA can now expect many important and potent events to occur in the country between now and August 21 2017, especially close to the actual date of August 21 2017.

On that date there will be a Total Eclipse of the Sun in Leo.  That eclipse will “travel” exclusively across the USA and will closely oppose the USA natal Moon in Aquarius.

The parts of the world that an eclipse travels over are the places most apt to experience the important events. The Moon in any natal chart is the planet that provides feelings of safety, comfort, and emotional well being. Those feelings will be challenged here in USA.

So expect our country to go through great change over the next year or more.  And of course the Presidential election will bring big change no matter who is elected, especially so if Donald Trump is elected.

Remember last year when I predicted with my planetary formula that Trump would win the Republican nomination, even though at the time he was one of 17 candidates and not even remotely considered a favorite to win.

I also wrote that Trump would likely win the Presidency if there were major events that would erupt in our country prior to the Presidential Election, events that would severely threaten USA security- like terrorist attacks or market crashes.

I believe that because Trump’s natal chart is closely tied to the USA natal Mars and Pluto, symbols of its power and strength in the world.

Eclipse season will either bring us such events or will at least give us some clues as to what to expect between now and the election.  And whomever becomes the next president will inherit a USA that will be going through major and difficult transformational change, especially leading up to the Total Eclipse on August 21 2017.

The structure of our world for an Age of Aquarius requires a world of equality and Diversity within Unity.  Many world changes will occur in order to make that happen.

We each individually will also be challenged to grow and transform during that time period.  All of this is a part of the accelerated change happening on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

This acceleration began in the early Spring 2014 when there was an eclipse that formed with other planets to become a Cardinal Grand Cross.

In the world at that time Islamic State invaded Mosul Iraq and declared itself a state and Caliphate in conjunction with its captured land in Syria.  This was the beginning of seeing the strength of Islamic State.

Also Russia at that time invaded Ukraine, upsetting the settled boundaries. This began a rift between western countries in Nato and Russia.

And China around that time was declaring land around the China Sea as its property against the beliefs of Philippines, Viet Nam and other Asian countries

Also soon after the Cardinal Grand Cross, there was a police killing of an unarmed black man in Ferguson Missouri that set off major riots.

All these issues are still unsettled and promise more potent events and transformational changes.

In our own lives most of us have entered into a New Chapter of our lives since March 2014. We have gone through much change, and in the process a letting go and releasing of that which represented the passing chapter in our lives.

The Universe is helping each one of us to transform our consciousness and lives in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

We are being shown the way to our more authentic Self and more authentic lives.  Homes, relationships, schooling, and careers have been changing as a result.

So now in the continuing process of transition into a New Season or Chapter of our lives, we become challenged to let go and release some more of what no longer fits who we are becoming.

And we will receive more magic, more synchronicity, more signs and symbols to inspire us on the path into our new consciousness and lives.

As we are still in Eclipse Season, while Mercury is Retrograde (till September 22), it is important for each of us to be flexible, to be more open in our hearts, and to not let our left brain logical minds to stress too much in order to squeeze out answers and solutions.

Let the process unfold over the next few weeks and be patient about receiving clarity  and direction.

This week we add a few new important planetary events.

The biggest is another exact square between Saturn and Neptune. As we explained in previous forecasts, there is a conflict between needs for security (Saturn) and desires for transformational change (Neptune).  Saturn is boundaries, rules, and regulations. Neptune is borderless, with needs to have more empathy and to trust and “let in”.

Issues in the world about immigrants and strict boundary control plays out within the USA and also within Europe, as well as with Islamic State changes of boundaries in Syria and Iraq.

In our personal lives our boundaries may be threatened by others; emotions may be out of control; ; conflicts between being firm and being empathic; and conflicts for following rules and being responsible versus wanting to escape so much anxiety and stress.

Also this week on Friday September 9 Jupiter enters Libra for a year, after having been in Virgo this past year.

Jupiter in Virgo is inspired by more order, efficiency, and logical analysis.  Jupiter in Libra is inspired by balance, equality, fairness, beauty, peace and most of all relationship.

This coming year is a good year to work on relationships of all kinds, and to find the connecting links between people and between all things.

Stay on your path this week no matter what is going on around you and inside you.

Till next week,

Leo

Entering a New Era and Astrology Forecast April 3-9

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 2, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This is an important week ahead.  The eclipses have passed, a big old era of our lives has passed.   The door that leads back to that old era is slammed shut, so there is nowhere to go but forward after the New Moon in Aries on April 7.

This Aries New Moon, on April 7 at 7:24 AM EDT, means more than the usual one, as it signifies bigger new beginnings than usual.

The goodbyes are most deeply felt now before the new moon.

Our whole world is passing from one era to another.     Look at the political world and competition for President.

The old rules from the old era are not there like they used to be.   The candidacies of Sanders and Trump are breaking all the old rules down.

Sanders is an avowed socialist who has little allegiance to the monetary “system”.   Trump has been breaking all the rules and winning whilst doing so.

In fact if Clinton wins it will mean the first female ever elected, which would mean a new beginning too.

In the greater world the Islamic State has broken all the rules of a civilized society and eaten up land and changed the boundaries that were claimed by nation states, like Iraq and Syria.

North Korea has been getting inordinately more vociferous in its’ screams to be noticed for its nuclear power.  The danger level for war is greater than ever in Korea.

Old Rules have been breaking down, New Rules are slowly developing.

Within the chaos of breakdowns, potential creativity is opened up.  Progress and transformation become more attainable.

But with this chaos there are strong desires to keep a lid on the jar of change, to hold back the rushing energies of transformation.

More fascistic politics get stronger, militaries and police forces get stronger.

In Europe the chaos of immigration and terrorism has been creating more right wing voices to act to heavily control everything.

This is a most dangerous combination between chaos and control, but it is a natural place to be in this transition between ages.

And now we are entering, with this Aries New Moon, a new era within the transition between ages.

This new era will be focused on the breakdown of the old world and its system in America and around the world.

In your own life, after this Aries New Moon which is conjunct liberating Uranus, it is time to move forward and not look back. This New Moon is also square Pluto, so the still viable transformational Uranus/Pluto square is being triggered at this New Moon.

Expect the intensity level to increase appreciably and the desire for action to get stronger.

You are being liberated from old stuck places in your mind, heart, body and life.

You are being directed to your true Self and your personal needs, to your true authentic Self.

It is time to move forward in a big way now, freed from old patterns of servitude to causes other than your own.

You are here on this planet to fulfill a destiny and you cannot do that if you continue to constantly get distracted by others’ dramas.

Use this Aries New Moon to break away and get going in this new era of your life.

If you have already entered this new season of your life, then use this New Moon to propel your Self forward without looking back.

There is no time now that can be alotted to wringing your hands with complaints.

It is time to do something about it, to empower your Self like you have never done before.

Aries is quite arguably the most empowered of all the signs (Scorpio would disagree), so you can use this energy to feed your inner forces of strength.

Uranus in the signature of this New Moon in Aries will awaken you out of any slumber you have been in.  Pluto will help you to be ruthless in your desires to move on.

The winter slumber in our minds and hearts will end after this New Moon in Aries.  It is time to wake up and to look more clearly at our Self and our life and to make the necessary changes.

Awakening also means seeing and speaking the truth and not hiding it anymore.

In the greater world Uranus is revolution, a breaking from conventional standards of behavior.  So watch for peoples and countries to break out and make great breakthoughs surrounding and after this Aries New Moon.

Countries that feel shackled by the world system will get stronger with their actions and voices. So North Korea and Palestine may get more angry now.

In your personal life it would be beneficial now to honor this move into  a new era of your life.

Look over the past few years and see how it has been for you and your growth.

If you feel regret because of what was done or not done during that time, please realize that until one truly wakes up, change will not happen.

Don’t judge your self for what happened in the last era of your life. Instead look it over and learn from your mistakes. You can take responsibility without finding blame.   Ponder the possibility that everything happened for a reason, even if you cannot figure it out.

And now as you have awakened in a new way, take responsibility for making the necessary changes.

If you blame someone else for your stuck place, you are missing the deeper point.   That person you blame for being stuck was chosen by you to be in your life.   They are a part of you, the part that is comfortable in the familiar and is afraid of change.

If you truly are ready for change, then find a way to do it!

It will be a very interesing Spring and Summer 2016– Lots of big change and powerful Earth shaking world events.

Stay tuned right here,

Leo

Processing and Preparing and Astrology Forecast March 27- April 2

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 26, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It has been quite an intense Eclipse Season for many.   We are in transition between chapters of our lives.   We are releasing and perhaps grieving where we have been and who has been with us from the now passing chapter of our lives.

The Lunar Eclipse last week was quite powerful and an important turning point for many.

The old can no longer be easily held onto anymore.  We are being strongly motivated to let go, and if we are capable of letting go with love, that is usually the healthiest way to go.

But truth is also important now, and holding oneself and others accountable is part of that truth.

The next chapter of our lives will be long term better if we leave the old chapter in the “right way”.  Perhaps we have regrets, but they are not good to hold onto.  We can learn from them and find meaning from them, but beating ourselves and others up is out of alignment and does not help our new journey forward.

From now until April 7, at the New Moon in Aries,  we are processing all we have recently gone through on the physical plane, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

We are prepping and preparing on all levels for the strong movement forward after the 7th of April.

So April 7 is a good marking point, if you need one, for new beginnings of all sorts.

If your 3-D life does not have any obvious new chapters, then go deeper inside to see what is changing.

Are you leaving behind old patterns and habits, old attitudes and beliefs?  Are you coming back to your true values and authenticity?   Are you rewiring your self or your life rom the inside?

Do get in touch with the changes now, as this is an important time period on our transformational journey, a time when we are evolving and progressing, whether we consciously know it or not.

In the Greater World there is great change happening between chapters and between ages.

Many signs are pointing to a long term war with the Islamic State, a war that is bound to trigger other conflictual relationships between world countries, cultures and egos.  The suicide bombing in Brussels at the eclipse this week was telling.

Is this what we want or what we need?

There is an economy that looks OK on the outside, but in many peoples’ real lives it is not OK.   How will the transformation of our world economy play out?

The USA presidential election is showing, through what the candidates represent, very different ideas of how to guide our lives going forward into a new chapter and soon new age.

Do we need to revisit old, outworn, unhealthy, destructive, dominating, greedy ways of living on this planet together?

What will it take for the vast majority of this world’s human population to get the fact that all humans are part of the same family with similar needs and hopes?

Will it take a huge wakeup call that happens by taking everything to the edge of despair first?  Or can we wake up in ways that will not destroy so many lives first.

Often I picture aliens coming down to our planet, scaring us, and motivating us to come together as one family in contrast to the Visitors.    I find that a better option than doing the world war and breakdown of our economy again.

Many from a now dying generation experienced a World War and a Depression in their youths.

Another more recent generation, now entering old age, experienced revolutionary times of great change, with much war and violence being a motivation for wanting to change the world.

But now the change at our doorsteps is more important than ever, as we are further along the road to an Age of Aquarius.

As such we so need beliefs and paradigms for each or us and collectively to deeply transform.

We can no longer just accept the idea that those with different orientations of all kinds are our enemy or someone not to be trusted.

We can no longer just accept the paradigm that evolution requires a dog-eat-dog mentality to survive.

We can no longer accept that our lives are filled with random events not connected with any meaning.

In fact we can no longer accept the belief that we are all separate with little or no threads of connection between us.

And we can no longer accept that truth is a matter of how you spin things.   Truth should not be just in the hands of those in power and control. Truth should not be in the hands of those “in authority”.

Truth is there for us all to witness, filtered through our own minds and hearts, not programmed into us by an unhealthy society.

So now this week, as we begin to “come down” from the disruptions of the eclipses, it is time to begin to bring more sanity and groundedness into your consciousness and lives.

Saturn, which just shot out its gravitational energies  to us through its change to retrograde last week, can now provide us with said grounding and organizational skills and discipline.

We can now take back some control of our lives, or better yet take full accountabilty and responsibilty for our own lives and choices.

So this week we begin the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on March 8.

There is a lot to to process and a lot to do while looking forward to new beginnings after the 7th of April.

Also this week, Mercury will be busy with aspects to expansive and transformational planets.

Mercury makes aspect to Jupiter on the 29th, Pluto on the 30th, and onjuncts Uranus on the 31st.

Mercury, the messenger of the gods, will be trying to deliver information from the heavens to each of us for our own lives and for the lives of us as a collective.

It will be a great week for meditation or spiritual practice.

Mercury is also about communication, and how you convey your message to others is important.  If you allow your mind to go deeper, you will get the help you need in how to communicate effectively.

Till next week,

Leo

Taking the Ride and Astrology Forecast December 6-12

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on December 5, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now firmly in the last quarter of the lunar cycle, experiencing a darkening Moon prior to the rebirth at the Sagittarius New Moon on December 11.

Before that fiery new moon next Friday, as we first experience the darkening last quarter Moon- we are most aligned doing cleanup work, releasing, healing, completing, and finding closure.

To assist us on our healing and releasing journey,  Mars will be squaring Pluto early this week.

This very intense aspect symbolizes deeply powerful and perhaps explosive energies building up beneath the surface.  The Moon in Scorpio most of Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday adds to the deeply powerful feelings. Plus Venus has just entered Scorpio, where it will stay until December 30.

At the least we will be contacting feelings and emotions deep inside of us, feelings that may sometimes be difficult.

These feelings coming up for us represent that which has not been fully dealt with yet, not been fully expressed or released.

We may need to feel our pain again or to grieve some more for times gone by, or for people or pets no longer with us or no longer connected in our hearts.

We may even need to express emotions to someone else, in order to say our piece to them, to empower our selves, to hold them accountable, or to clear the air.

This process will hopefully help you to put some issues behind you, to release toxic energies, to find completion, and to get ready for the new beginnings at the strong New Moon in Sagittarius on December 11 at 5:29 AM EST.

So this will be for many a very transformational week, the first part facing some shadows or inner demons; and the last part being thrust forward into a rebirth or at least new beginnings.

The Mars square Pluto aspect on Sunday triggers the Uranus/Pluto square, which is still in effect.  This Uranus/Pluto square, which has been in effect since 2011, is an important part of the powerful changes we are seeing in the world and inside ourselves.

Uranus and Pluto are two of the three transformational planets, Neptune being the other one.

These three planets are cosmic ambassadors for the New Age in Aquarius.

All three are relatively recent discoveries:  Uranus in 1781, Neptune in 1846, and Pluto in 1930.

They are instrumental in bringing us the consciousness needed to pass through the transition between ages.

After Mars squares Pluto this Sunday, later this week just before the New Moon- Mars will be in opposition to Uranus, again triggering the Uranus/Pluto square.  This Mars opposite Uranus aspect, along with the New Moon in Sagittarius, represents breakthrough liberation and new beginnings.

Mars opposition Uranus carries the energy to help us get unstuck, of being lifted outside of any boxes in our minds or lives, and being liberated from that which has previoiusly kept us held back.

It synchronizes perfectly with the New Moon in Sagittarius.

Sagittarius brings an upwardly pointed energy, seeking spirit and higher meaning.  It can bring with it inspiration and excitement,  upliftment and adventure.

It is a most fiery sign, high minded and joyful. It is intuitive and sometimes impulsive.  That can mean not looking before one leaps off a cliff of some new adventure.

It also represents the tendency sometimes to say things without filter, to be quite genuine but not always aware of how it is affecting a situation or others.

In the greater world, powerful events will likely continue.

If they happen early in the week they are more about releasing powerful energies that have been building beneath the surface- in nature that may be storms or earthquakes.  In emotions it is about pent up emotions being released.

Later in the week, closer to the New Moon in Sagittarius, events will likely have themes more about breaking away and being liberated. Or they can be about losing control or feeling free to “take the leap”.

Sagittarius can be like the Fool in Tarot.  It will leap off the cliff, with faith as its guiding force.

Sagittarius is also about finding clearer answers or greater meaning, so if you make intention around the New Moon for more clarity, direction, or solution you will have a better chance of finding it then.

So at and after the New Moon in Sagittarius, it is time to get going forward after having gone through a lengthy time of processing, releasing, healing, and feeling so deeply.

This is an important new moon.  You are being freed up to enter a new season of your life, less controlled by your ego, and riding more on your Higher Self’s destiny.

Yes Rome is burning all around us now.  The old world is dying a very painful death.  Please do not get all involved with fear and rage toward the Islamic State or anything else.  If it wasn’t Islamic State it would be something else reminding us of the demons from our past buried deep in humanity’s collective unconscious.

It is time to release the old paradigm of “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth” revengeful rage.  It is time to release the need to always have an enemy to destroy, as enemies are projections of our own inner demons.

“My people are better than your people and enemies of your people” is an old ego story needing to die.  My country, my religion, my people are different than yours but no better or worse. It is my way, not the best way for everyone.

Diversity within Unity is the Age of Aquarius.  Get on the ride.

Till next week,

Leo

Chaos and Order and Astrology Forecast November 22- 28

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 21, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Since the New Moon in Scorpio on November 11, there have been a lot of violent events that have occurred:  A brutal attack on Paris and another brutal attack in Beirut Lebanon.  Both of these attacks have been identified as being perpetrated by the Islamic State or ISIS.  Another horrible attack happened at an international hotel in Mali, Africa.. This one may have been done by Islamic State but that is not known yet.  And in Israel violence has continued and even grown since the New Moon in Scorpio.

These events are all outgrowths from the Eclipse Season this last September and alert us all to the grave need for vast transformational change in our world.

It is easy to attribute all this violence to Radical Islam, and then believe that if we can eradicate ISIS and other groups of Islamic terrorism that the problem will be solved and all will then be fine.

And though we certainly need to  solve this problem and work to end the onslaught of brutal attacks perpetrated by Islamic State, Al Queda and other such groups; more importantly we need to change some paradigms we have given allegiance to for thousands of years.

These old paradigms give fuel to the fires of “might makes right”,  survival of the fittest, greedy desires to take as much as one can,  and just generally a philosphy of every man for himself in competition with others for power, money, and privilege.

These paradigms have brought us world wars, colonization, invading of countries that have not attacked you first, extremely uneven distribution of wealth, weapons of mass destruction, and just generally a violent society that creates separation between peoples and a lack of empathy for those we see as different from us.

The transformation we are moving through can feel and look awfully bleak in a global sense, I know.  But we have to go through this dark tunnel in the transformational process before we can experience the Aquarian Age light at the end of that tunnnel.

And of course even as these horrible events are happening many of us are also experiencing spiritual awakenings, transformed health habits, magical experiences of synchronicity, desires to help heal our human family and Earth, a greater honoring of our authentic selves, a turning more and more to our higher self instead of our ego, more empathy and compassion, more personal empowerment, shedding skins of programming from society and family, and healthier relationships.

So remember the bigger picture of changing ages and moving into a world of Diverity within Unity.  Nothing will stop that movement except our human negative instinct for self destruction because of a “dog eat dog” mentality.

Just saw on the news last night how someone slaughtered two innocent cows in someone’s pasture.   Was that because of the Islamic State?  Or was it because we live in a violent society? Movies, video games, etc. show us such depraved butchery, blood guts and all.  This did not exist 50 years ago.

We need this transformation into an Age of Aquarius. And what each of us can do is to work on our own consciousness and lives, and help those who we come in contact with who also wish to transform themselves and our world into a more evolved one.

This coming week shows us three planetary highlights: Sun goes into Sagittarius; Full Moon in Gemini; and Saturn square Neptune.

Saturn square Neptune is exact this Thursday November 26, but its effect on our world is many months before and after.

Saturn is limits, rules, and boundaries.  Neptune is openness and flow with no boundaries.

If you look at what is happening in our global scene, this is playing out in a big way.  Look at the refugee issue. There are many peoples leaving their homes and state for a new home. Mostly European countries are debating whether to put up strong boundaries against their entry or whether to let them in.

On the USA southern border the issue of immigration and illegals is getting more and more intense.

And Islamic State has wiped out old state boundaries of Iraq and Syria, and is crossing boundaries for attacks in other countries.

In 1988-1990 the Saturn conjunct Neptune aspect started the current Saturn/Neptune cycle.

At that time the Soviet Union was breaking up and countries were becoming sovereign entities outside the control of Russia.

This of course greatly affected our world and most especially the USA.

In your personal life this issue of rules and boundaries versus more permissiveness can play out in many ways. One that comes to mind is how we raise our children.  Seems like the balance between permissiveness and more strict rules has been shifting or needs to shift.

There has been a much greater permissiveness over the last 40 years or so.  Is there a need to get back to more firm rules and guidelines? Or not?

And also Saturn represents security and groundedness. Neptune is nore chaotic by nature in its watery flow over and around all boundaries.

So watch how the world and our personal lives try to balance allowing for change which can bring more feelings of confusion and chaos on the one hand- with more security and safety on the other hand.

As there is more change, rebellion and attending chaos, police and military can get more oppressive in trying to keep order. Witness the race issues this past year or two.

Also this week the Sun moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius on Sunday November 22.  So energetically we move from primal intensity and passion to desires for upliftment, inspiration, joy, and adventure.

And on Wednesday November 25 at 5:44 PM EST there is Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini.  This Full Moon should be very lively with desires for communication and relating.  Gemini brings in facts and information and delivers to others those facts and information. Sagittarius seeks to take this information and make meaning, find solution and understanding to it all.

This will carry into the next day, which is Thanksgiving Day here in the USA.  It should be a very lively, talkative atmosphere to be in that day.

Till next week,

Leo

Finding Inner Peace During Difficult Times and Astrology Forecast November 15-21.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 14, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We had been letting you know that the New Moon in Scorpio last week was going to bring us powerful world events. We wrote that those events would be extensions of the shifts that happened during the Eclipse Season a couple of months ago.

In fact we wrote last week that the Scorpio New Moon could very well open up the “Gates of Hell” through world events.

And it sure seems like it did open those gates with the horrific attacks in France.

Please reread the column last week again, as we then talked at length about how to not be drawn into hellish emotions and instead to find a spiritual place inside yourself.

It would be so easy now to react with rage and to want to go to war with the Islamic State.  That is where most leaders of the western world are going to right now.

And it is easy to understand why.  When one is attacked there is a primal instinct that is triggered. That instinct is to destroy those who have attacked you. That is how wars get started.  Being frightened and running away is the other knee jerk reaction to being attacked.  Our instincts are to fight or give flight.

People like Martin Luther King and Ghandi and others have taught us how to act differently, how to be empowered but not violently confrontational.

We collectively are in the process of learning how to evolve into those ways of being.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, known as the “guardian of the underworld”.  That underworld in part is about our unconscious primal instincts.

Only by being more conscious can we transform that primal instinct.

Ghandi created a mass civil disobedience of the British Empire, which had conquered and then oppressed India.  Britain eventually left India in large part because of the civil disobedience.  Ghandi’s rebellion actually happened in the year that Pluto was discovered- 1930-  “As Above So Below”. He was teaching us how to be empowered without needing to kill and dominate.

Now I am not so naive to believe that civil disobedience will stop the brutal Islamic State.  But I do know that there are ways to evolve beyond the consciousness of the Old Testament’s “An Eye for an Eye and a Tooth for a Tooth”.  We should have learned by now that that attitude makes everyone blind and toothless.

Each of us needs to find a place inside that is peaceful yet empowered. That is what will evolve our human family to one that eventually becomes “Diversity within Unity”.  We each can only be fully responsible for our own evolution,however, not everyone else.  So each of us must find ways to change our consciousness aligned with the New Age.  And then have faith that all will eventually work out right.

For now be aware that more powerful global events are on the way.

To help us to deal with these events, this coming week brings some adjustments to the energies of the Scorpio New Moon lunar cycle: Neptune changes directions from Retrograde to Direct on Wednesday; and next weekend the Sun moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius.

In what ways has this Scorpio New Moon brought more intensity into your life?   Do you feel more empowered or passionate? Have your “buttons” been pushed by others to make you want to emotionally react to them with anger? Are you going deeper inside to find new insights?  Have secrets come out into the open?

The Neptune shift on Wednesday should bring softer energies to work with.   Neptune seeks to help us to be more vulnerable and to let go and go more with the flow. It often brings with it the magic of synchronicity as well as symbols and signs from the Universe.

So use this Neptune shift to shift your consciousness to a place of trust and openness to the Universe and to your own Higher Self.

Next weekend when the Sun moves into Sagittarius, the potential for more inspiration will come with it.  Sagittarius is a sign that is “ruled” by Jupiter.  Unlike Pluto the Guardian of the Underworld, Jupiter is a “sky” god, one who rules higher meaning, higher learning, taking the high road, and inspiration.

Sagittarius is intuitive more that intellectual, sees the bigger picture much better than it sees the details; in other words is better at seeing the forest than the trees.

Sagittarius also is a seeker. It seeks spiritual knowlege; it seeks out answers and understanding; it seeks to find the meaning in everything; and it seeks adventure.

It has a tendency to “leap before it looks” however.  It trusts its intuition, sometimes to a fault, and its fiery free spirited disposition can get it be impulsive sometimes.

But it is nevertheless very resilient, in large part because faith is another of its priorities for living its life. It seeks to find and create light in the darkness.

So you will be given some energetic tools from the Universe this week to help you to better deal with the difficulties that have come since the September Eclipses and the Scorpio New Moon last week.

Not long after the eclipses we were brought to a somewhat peaceful plateau with Virgo and Libra energies leading the way, but obviously since the Scorpio New Moon the energy field around us and in us has greatly intensified and is taking us through a powerful transformational period.

Even the stock market, which started to move up again after the big slide downward during Eclipse Season, last week went quite down again.

Make no mistake, we are transforming out of the old world and in transition into the Age of Aquarius.

But part of that process does not feel very good, and has us releasing toxic energies and self defeating old patterns of thought and behavior.

As we release the old, we open ourselves to new truth and love energies that will set us free from the chains of the past.

Keep purging even as you are moving forward into this New Chapter of your life. Every day and in every way you are transforming into a more authentic self and life.   You are releasing your old programmed attitudes and belief systems, and in the process are being awakened to the Truth of Who you are really are, and to what your purpose is for being here on the Earth at this time.

And you are being awakened also to the truth of the world you live in, one that is also in the process of deep transformation. The labor pains can be very ugly and painful before the brith of the Age of Aquarius.  And it will come.

Till next week,

Leo

Zombies and Astrology Forecast July 5- 11

The Capricorn Full Moon has passed and now we move through the waning half of the lunar cycle that was begun on June 16 at the New Moon in Gemini.  

Now we pick up the pieces and process what has been happening in our consciousness and lives.   Over the last several weeks, going back to the Spring Eclipses, we have experienced big shifts in our lives.  The heart openings, breakthroughs, breakdowns, challenges, magic, and difficulties over that time period now need to be examined, emotionally and spiritually processed, and put into some order.

On Monday July 6 the Sun will oppose Pluto and will trigger the Uranus/Pluto square, which is still in effect.    This will help us to more deeply process what has been changing in our lives recently.   Recent relational shifts require more clarity and this Sun/Pluto aspect will help bring issues to the surface.  That will aid our ability to process, gain more clarity, and move through the changes.

This aspect will also require that we release old ways and attitudes that are baggage from our past.  In so doing we are clearing the decks of our hearts and minds, so our new voyage can be more fully embraced.

The triggers to to the Uranus/Pluto square will help the process of transformation:  Monday July 6 Sun opposite Pluto,  July 11 Sun square Uranus, July 15 Mars opposite Pluto, and July 25 Mars opposite Uranus.   These planetary configurations will continue the process of pushing you out of your old comfort zones, to make way for transformational change in your life.

On July 15, as Mars opposes Pluto, there will also be a New Moon in Cancer.  A few days surrounding that date will likely bring much emotional expression and release.     Be careful not to be too angry then or too out of control emotionally. We will write more about next week.

The Mars opposition to Uranus on July 25 will also be a full day of important planetary movement as Venus will be going Retrograde then.  Relationships will be in the spotlight of your life then and will continue to be through September 6 when Venus goes back Direct.  More on that as we get closer to that date.

Then early August will bring a major turning point in our lives, especially so as Saturn goes Direct on August 2.   Saturn going direct is like time marching on. It can give a sense of fate and “now it is time”.

Venus Retrograde in Leo, Jupiter in Leo, and Saturn in Scorpio will be doing a planetary dance with each other in early August that brings us to this important turning point in our lives.

Later when Venus goes Direct on September 6, two powerful eclipses will follow:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 13 and then a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on September 27.

The full power of transformation will be erupting in our lives then, and world events will reflect the importance of these eclipses.

These events in the world, which will likely include some economic meltdown and world conflict, will open the doorway to even more breakthroughs in our transitional voyage into the Age of Aquarius.

Right now this week as the Sun triggers the Uranus/Pluto square, there are important decisions to be made on Iran’s nuclear program and Greece’s financial condition.

July 7 appears to represent the time of potential completion of the deal between Iran and the United Nations security council plus Germany.    Even if they do agree to a deal, the backlash from Israel and hardliners in the USA and Iran will likely be fierce.

On July 5 the citizens of Greece will be voting by referendum on their government’s debt crisis.  If they vote no, they will be speaking against the austerity measures demanded by the lenders in order to help satisfy loans given to Greece.

Greece has a recently “voted in” a socialist government that fundamentally opposes the current Capitalist system.   Europe’s future and the future of our global current economic system are being challenged by the crisis in Greece. This past week, banks in Greece had been closed in order to limit withdrawals of money from personal accounts.

And of course the Middle East continues to be in severe crisis with the Islamic State continuing its breakdown of the order in Iraq, Syria, and North Africa.  The Egyptian Sinai region is now in conflict with IS as is the Gaza Strip in Palestine.

And the recent Supreme Court decision to make Gay marriage the law of America is a huge step into the Age of Aquarius.   We can only hope and pray that the backlash for this from fundamentalist haters is not too severe.

In our personal lives there will continue to be breakdowns of old personal systems that no longer hold heart, soul and spirit. Empty structures and “life support systems”  cannot stand up for long.

They will cease to exist as we open our hearts and minds to new consciousness and ways of living our lives. Careers, relationships, home bases, and inner values continue to transform.

Liberation and resulting displays of synchronicity, meaningful symbols, and magic will open more and more in your consciousness and life.  Your heart will be bursting more open too as you experience life from a more pure place again, without the need to control everything.

As your ego subsequently loses its power in your psyche and life, you may feel insecure and/or anxious at first, but more and more you will be feeling alive again.

You know the old question “Is your heart in it”? is always an important question to ask oneself.   That question can be asked about a relationship or job or place you live.  If your heart is not in it anymore, then your heart is dying little by little.

Can you get your heart back into that relationship or home or career? If not it may not last.  Or maybe it will last because of your desperate need to totally control your heart and life in familiar ways.   But then you risk, through time, of joining the dinosaur gathering of soul dead zombies in a suburb of unhappiness.

Till next week,

Leo
