Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo and Astrology Forecast August 20-26

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The long awaited Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo happens this week Monday August 21. Though this eclipse represents an extremely important passage for our human family, I wish people had not turned it into another Super Bowl type event.

This Eclipse opens a portal into a big New Chapter of life on Planet Earth, a New Chapter that will take us through an important part of our transition into the Age of Aquarius.

Quite obviously this New Chapter brings with it much turmoil and challenge, to put it lightly; but this New Chapter will also bring many great awakenings, heart openings, a greater sense of connection and meaning, and new vistas of truth beyond what we have been programmed to believe about ourselves and our world.

So it would be good at the time of the eclipse to meditate and pray, to visualize what this new world will be like both collectively and individually.

All new moons are good times to pray, meditate and visualize; but this one being a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon gives this new moon a far greater authority to shape the world we will live in.

Of course some things are already in place and are meant to be, but much else is open to the co-creation from our human family.

We are definitely in for some turmoil, chaos, and darkness, but the intensity and length I believe can be changed with our intentions, actions, and level of evolving.

Out in the world leading up to this Total Eclipse, there were a few intense conflicts and potential wars that have been playing out.

There is a culture war that was triggered into greater force in Charlottesville, and is continuing in Boston and other places now.

There has been an increase this past week in Islamic State terror attacks: 2 in Spain; 1 in Finland, and 1 in Russia.

And of course North Korea has been burning with talk of war, though this last week rageful talk lessened appreciably.

But on the date of the eclipse, by no mere random coincidence, the USA and South Korea will be active in practicing war games together. North Korea wants those games to be cancelled as it sees them as threatening actions right near its border. And it expects the USA and South Korea to reciprocate the gesture of North Korea not sending promised missiles toward Guam.

This is a big turning point on Monday at the eclipse. If the USA and South Korea go through with their war games, North Korea will likely send some powerful message in return. And then we are back where we were a couple weeks ago and probably even much worse.

The culture wars’ recent rise in emotional temperature, while we are experiencing a most chaotic, unstable, and unpredictable Trump presidential administration, shows us a splitting of America, not dissimilar to the Civil War.

And Islamic State is getting more geared up for western attacks now, as it loses more and more of its territory in Syria and Iraq.

America and the Western World are facing a huge bout of dissolution during our journey into an Age of Aquarius.

The Aquarian values of America’s Bill of Rights are being threatened by recent events. America has it natal moon (its inner values) in Aquarius.

What happened in Charlottesville is showing us the needed transformation of those Aquarian values. “All Men are Created Equal…” needs an update and transformation.

How about Women, how about men and women who are not just white northern Europeans, which were the vast majority of those who populated the colonies here in America when the Constitution and Bill of Rights were written?

How about other countries and cultures all around the world? How about those who have alternative sexual orientations?

All People are Created equal.

So America is in the process of a transformation of its values, its Aquarian values, both from the inside and from the outside of its borders.

And when Rome lost its way it decayed on the inside, and was threatened by those outside its borders.

Now we have an opportunity to evolve into an equal member of this world, beyond Empire and Superpower status.

So inside ourselves we are letting go of notions of intrinsic superiority or inferiority; of some deserving more than others; of believing life is a battle for survival over others; and that our souls belong to and are beholden to a church or a nation or our employers or our families.

We are responsible for our own souls and their relationship to collective Soul, collective Spirit, and the Universe.

Allow yourself to feel this powerful Eclipse turning point for our consciousness and lives here on Earth.

Trust the Universe and its greater plan of a changing of ages.

Be open and ready for greater knowledge of our human truths and human heritage.   Allow your heart and mind to be open to extraterrestrial origins and potential extraterrestrial visitation. It is coming.

Open your mind and heart to experiencing new frequencies and dimensions, new ways to view our human experience.

Have faith all is happening aligned with Divine and Earthly wisdom, as we move into a New Age of Aquarius.

This Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo will be at 2:30 PM EDT.  It will have Uranus, the planet of great awakenings, in close trine to that Eclipse.  Uranus will add greater energy to the Eclipse and desires to break away and break free.

Also this week Saturn is slowing down as it is about to go Retrograde this coming Thursday August 24.

As it changes direction from Retrograde to Direct movement, its energy of contraction and gravity fills our psychic air space.

Going Direct, Saturn gives a sense of Time starting up again, of predestination, of “meant to be”,  of responsibility, of doing what needs to be done.

This Saturn shifts directions at 21+ degrees of Sagittarius– almost exactly opposite the USA natal Mars in Gemini, almost exactly conjunct Trump’s Moon in Sagittarius and opposite his Sun in Gemini, which tellingly is conjunct the USA natal Mars.

And Trump’s natal Ascendant and Mars are closely conjunct the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon at 28+ degrees of Leo.  This Eclipse is also opposite the aforementioned USA Moon in Aquarius.

So Donald Trump and the USA are very connected to this Eclipse.  Will we get in a war with North Korea?   Will Trump get impeached?  Will the culture wars turn into a Civil War again?

Or will the Eclipse turning point show us the way to peace with North Korea, and a turning down of the temperature of the culture wars?

The turning point moment is the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21at 2:30 PM.

Remember that Mercury is still Retrograde then, so do not jump to any conclusions or try to force your mind into finding quick solution.   Linear thinking is not at its best now.

Time “starts up again” with Saturn Direct on August 24.

Mercury goes back Direct on September 5.  

This Eclipse season ends at the New Moon in Virgo on September 19/20, close to the Autumn Equinox on September 22.

important World events can happen anytime during that time frame of August 21-September 20.   And yet many other world events with reference to Eclipse Season will happen after Eclipse Season ends on September 20, including great economic challenges, which we will talk about later.

In your personal life, be prepared for both world and personal changes that will transform your consciousness and transform your life.

You will need to leave your comfort zones and open to the new energies wanting to pour through this Portal into a New Chapter of our lives.

It is natural now to feel out of balance and not knowing where things are headed. Therefore trust is important now, trust we live in a meaningful and loving Universe, even when things are really difficult.

This ride can bring great joy and fun too, if you can let go of your need to control from your fears.  Please do not buy into the dramas now that can evoke great fear and hatred of those who are different than you like Trumpites.

Life and evolution are moving beyond these dinosaurs who are moving toward a last hurrah on their way to the dustbin of history.  They do not have control of our future.  We can only hope that we are not taken through too much darkness and suffering on our way to the Age of Aquarius.

You can help if you do not get consumed by great fear or hatred.  Those traits perpetuate the old ways, as do beliefs that the abusively powerful, greedy, mean spirited, hateful, bigoted, self serving people of the world inherit the Earth.

If you believe they will continue to dominate our world, you ought to question your deeper values, and question what you believe about humanity and the Universe.

Take care,

Leo

Here We Go and Astrology Forecast January.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 21, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The early part of this week is mostly about processing what has been happening in our personal lives and in the greater world.   Mercury is now firmly direct and back to its normal speed; and the Moon is in its 4th and last quarter phase of its cycle.

Where are we?  What has been happening to us and our world? The early part of this week will allow us to reflect on all this.

In the greater world we can now stop and feel the reality of a Trump administration and what it means for our world and lives.  The Women’s March right after Trump’s inaugration tells us more about the new reality we are all in now.

We had been experiencing a relatively graceful time period for the last 8 years, during President Obama’s presidential years.

There were many changes, like more recognition and honoring of the LGBT community; a big improvement economically from the housing and employment crashes right before he was elected;  the nuclear deal with Iran; and Obamacare.

There was also great turmoil in the rise of Islamic State; the Arab Spring; Occupy Wall Street; Ferguson Missouri and other examples of police abuse of African Americans; the rise of Russia again; continued economic disparity between rich and all others; terror attacks in America and western civilization, etc.

But most of the time there was little drama or anger or judgmentalness from the top of the Obama Administration.

Some would say there was not enough action taken on important matters like Syria, but nevertheless there was a sense that things would not fall apart and that the “system” would stay intact and functioning.

But now it is time for bigger transformational change, for greater conflict, for a sense that the old world is truly falling apart and a new alternative world being built.

You can see this ripeness for great transformational change by looking more deeply at the Trump administration.

On the one hand he has chosen those who are quite obviously guardians of the Old World like military generals, billionaires, oil barons,  ex Goldman-Sachs executives, etc.

On the other hand he does not fit the mold of traditional USA presidents at all; he shows obvious signs of impulsiveness which could cause events that really shake up our world;  he does not comply with traditional rituals and courtesies that have kept the Old World with structure; he is committed to doing business HIS WAY to a fault; he makes relationship with those who have traditionally been considered enemies; he is looking to tear down programs like Obamacare and the Iran deal; and he is planning on moving the USA Israel center to Jerusalem which would cause great turmoil and conflict in the Middle East.

So you can see some of what is coming: a desire to keep the Old World stronger than ever before- while tearing it down at the same time.

His Gemini twin nature is quite capable of moving in these opposite directions at the same time, in a perverse way aligned with the transformational movement of the Universe.

And “we the people” of this land and western civilization in general are facing a huge transformational change in our world and in our personal lives in the years ahead of us.

We are letting go of that which represents our personal “Old World” while letting in the light of our personal “New World”.

Relationships, homes, careers, and especially belief sytems that are connected to the old world paradigm will be released.

The Universe and our deeper Souls will be unfolding to us our new lives, our new beliefs and atttitudes aligned with the New World we have entered.

And of course in the bigger picture we are being transformed to align with the Age of Aquarius and its paradigm for our evolution.

This New Chapter of our lives, lasting the next few years, will not be as graceful as the last 8 years have been.

The Election between Trump and Clinton showed us the immense split in our country. It showed nastiness and character assassination; narcissism that precludes the ability to empathize with others and other ways of being; and a fight or competition that is ruthless and without true consideration for the welfare of the community.

We are at the same time being awakened to beliefs and attitudes that will help each of us to evolve into a Truth and Love, Diversity within Unity world, where win/win is the result intended in all conflicts and competitions.

The self actualization into our authentic selves will be combined with our intentions to be in meaningful relationship with others; and to contribute to our human community while healing our Earth and making greater connection to the Universe.

These are powerful times now, and we must be ready.

This week we concentrate on reflecting and processing until Friday January 27 at 7:07 PM EST.

That is the time of the New Moon in Aquarius, which also is the time of the beginning of the Chinese New Year of the Rooster.

Early on the next day the 28th, action oriented Mars moves out of go-with-the-flow Pisces and enters forceful and active Aries.

So late this week we get the “go sign” and start the New Era.  That New Moon in Aquarius will also begin the Eclipse Season, one that will show us a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on February 10; then a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

So the go sign is strong and changes will happen fast especially in the world at large.   President Trump will be making decisions that try to undo some of the accomplishments of the last 8 years and before.

People will begin to forcefully oppose these decisions and movements at the same time.

Transformational Change is breaking open.

On a personal level the Aquarius New Moon on the 27th,  that opens the portals for the Eclipse Season, shows us Aquarian traits.

So we will be prompted to find and honor our distinctive and individualized self, even if we feel we are different or weird.

And at the same time we will have doors opened for finding our soul families.    Birds of a Feather want to flock together now.

Finding your individual truth will help you to find your soul groups.

If you continue to be what others expect or want from you, or what you think you should be; then you will not know where you truly belong. But now you have the opportunity to begin to change that old way.

So get ready to begin the New Chapter adventure.  It is Time.

Till next week,

Leo

USA Transformation and Astrology Forecast December 11-17

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 10, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The last full moon of 2016 shows itself this week.   It is a Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini on Tuesday December 13 at 7:06 PM EST.

This makes a close conjunction with the Full Moon that happened on the day of Donald Trump’s birth.   But the Sun and Moon were turned around into opposite signs.

All Full Moons have the Sun and Moon opposite one another.  So for this Full Moon the Sun is in Sagittarius and the Moon is in Gemini.

At Donald Trump’s Full Moon birth the Sun was in Gemini and the Moon opposite in Sagittarius at approximately the same degrees as the one this week.

One of the reasons I predicted Trump’s nomination and subsequent election for president is because this natal Full Moon formation of his is very closely conjunct the USA Mars in Gemini from its natal chart of July 4 1776.

It is not merely coincidental that he has been choosing ex generals to his cabinet and to be his close advisors.  There are 3 already and probably more to come.  General David Petraeus is being considered for Secretary of State.

Look at how Donald Trump is so in favor of military and police.  These two powerful USA institutions will gain even more power and influence in the Donald Trump administration.

We must as citizens of the USA be very vigilant of domination by military and police now.

Remember that starting in April of 2014, deep core transformation of the USA began, as there was a Cardinal Grand Cross formation that made very close aspect to the USA natal Sun at 13+ degrees of Cancer.  There were two eclipses that month also.

In 2014 the Islamic State became a world threat, Russia took over Crimea in Ukraine, and there was a killing of a young black man by police in Ferguson Missouri.

All three of those issues began then and are still in the spotlight of  concern.  Each of those events represents deeper issues that are a part of USA transformation now.

The Uranus/Pluto square had an exact meeting in April 2014, which we have talked about at length as being the first major meeting of those two planets since their conjunction in the mid ’60s triggered the revolutionary movement of the ’60s and ’70s.

Uranus square Pluto had exact meetings from 2012-2015, triggering the transformation of the USA by aspecting its natal Sun and Saturn.

Yet the square is still in effect and influential now through 2017. Jupiter in Libra is forming with that square to make a Cardinal T-square formation that triggers the Cardinal Grand Cross from 2014.

For much of 2017 Jupiter will continue to activate a Cardinal T-square with Uranus and Pluto, promising a most powerful transformational year ahead.

Also this coming year Uranus and Jupiter will make aspect to the USA natal Pluto in Capricorn in the 2nd house.   So there will be great transformation of the USA economy and USA institutions that provide security.

The climax of this transformation of USA Pluto will come in the early 2020s when Saturn conjuncts USA natal Pluto, and there will also be a Pluto Return to its original USA natal placement.  It will be the first ever Pluto Return for the USA.

We can expect security, resources, and the security and economic institutions in the USA to break down and transform into new structures during the next 4-5 years.

The dismantling and transformation of the USA Military/Industrial complex will happen and last into the 2020’s- creating a vast opening for the Age of Aquarius to pour through.

Remember that President Eisenhower warned as he left office that that USA complex would continue to grow and take away our liberties.

We need to return to our core root principles and values in order to have a solid foundation for our place in the Age of Aquarius.   Military/Corporate/Economic control of our lives must end for this to happen .

Donald Trump will attempt to strengthen that Complex while at the same time helping to undo its controls. His Gemini twins work with both sides of that issue.

We will likely have attempts to dominate with order and to conserve the old “system”- while at the same time experiencing increasing chaos and anarchy to challenge that old system. Dominating Order seeks to keep the status quo, while free spirited chaos creates the atmosphere for change.

The next 4-5 years will be quite powerful here in the USA and in western civilization. There is a new world order emerging to form into the Diversity in Unity of the Age of Aquarius.

In the USA the control of our lives by the old paradigm will die with the Trump presidency.

The movement is toward the old minorties becoming the majority and creating true diversity in the USA. There is no stopping this movement.  It is in the numbers and well as spiritual reality.

The old white privileged paradigm in the USA is struggling to survive, and that is why it has gained temporary strength through a Trump presidency. It is a last gasp for that old world.

But as it comes down it will bring much darkness and turmoil to the country and world.  And of course we will experience great leaps of growth and consciousness transformation at the same time.

And this week brings us the Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini that connects with the USA natal Mars and Trump’s natal Sun and Moon.

This is a usually lively full moon full activating various types of communication. It will prompt us to integrate lots of information into some order, meaning and resolution.

This is a good time for learning and education.

Saturn conjunct this Full Moon, however, will push hard for resolution, conclusions, and limits. For some this will put a damper on otherwise lively communication at this annual Full Moon in Gemini.

There may also be a sense of fated events for the USA and soon to be president Trump around this time with the Saturn influence.  

Keep in mind that next week on the 19th Mercury will go retrograde and will stay retrograde until January 8.

Many have already been feeling its effects as it has slowed down appreciably before it will stop on the 19th and then go retrograde.

As you know our perceptions begin to change, our thinking and communcating sometimes become distorted. We rewind to times and people gone by, and we may begin to question our previous decisions. More on that next week.

Till next week,

Leo

Standing up for our Values and Astrology Forecast November 20-26.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 19, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

I have spoken with many individuals who have become very frightened since Donald Trump was elected President of the USA.

They are afraid that all the breakthroughs in rights for minorities and women that have opened up over the last several years will be closed up again.

They are afraid of bigotry and hatred spreading like wildfire through all our lives.

They are afraid that we will become a more fascistic nation, one run by a “strongman dictator” type person.

They are afraid that the values that keep this country’s soul alive are in danger of dying.

It is very understandable that people would be feeling this now because of what came out during the election process.   In fairness, some of what came out is true and some of what came out was exaggerated and demonized, as was Donald Trump.

Nevertheless we can expect the tone of governing created during the Obama years to be drastically changed now.  Grace, thoughtfulness, and fairness will almost certainly be in much shorter supply during the Trump years.

The pendulum is swinging back to a place it was in during the Bush years, Reagan years, and Nixon years.

But something is very different this time.  On the surface it looks and feels worse than the other more conservative years, but in the bigger picture, for the long term it must be what is needed.

We are closer now to the Age of Aquarius, no matter how it feels and looks right now.

As we submitted last week, the Nixon years felt at first like the end of the revolution and the stoppage of our evolution of consciousness; but it turned out to be a huge stimulus for greater than ever transformational change.

And now the fire is coming back in people’s eyes, and as an example a “Million Woman March” is scheduled for Inauguration Day to counteract the exposure of denigration towards women uncovered during the Election Process.

But the Cosby revelations already gave us a heads up that the issue of women’s rights and empowerment was needing a spotlight for our collective human family.

To get an even bigger picture let’s look at the Uranus/Pluto square that has been activated 2011-2016.

That time period has shown us what still needs to be cleaned up, healed, and transformed.

During that time we have woken up to the need to again facing issues of:  rights for African Americans and LGBT people; Russian and Chinese growing empowerment in the world; the rise of Islamic State and the fear of Islam; women’s rights; repairing the economy to work for all; nationalism vs. globalism; and a needed vision for our human family and Earth going forward.

And now at the end of this year 2016 we have truly entered an all new Chapter of Human Life on the road to the Age of Aquarius.

But these next 4-6 transitional years will be extremely intense and sometimes will look quite dark.

This new Trump regime is different than the other pendulum shifts to conservative.

That is because one of the firmly stated goals of the Trump/Bannon paradigm is to break down the old world of both Republican and Democrat parties, not just Democrats.

And as we have written many times, a breakdown of the old world is exactly what is needed for our transition into the Age of Aquarius.

And as we have stated it will look like a rather ugly process at times.

But we do need to clear our world of control by the Military/Industrial/Corporate complex.

And that breakdown will be initiated by Trumpian forces that are diammetrically opposed to what so many believe in.

So as a result, just like the “Million Woman March” in January, we all need to find our voice and empowerment, honor our deeper values, and speak up for what we believe in.

We the human family will be creating what this Age of Aquarius will be.

Right now nationalism, seen in the British Brexit leaving the Europen Union; Trump winning; Marine le Pen’s growing strength in Paris;  the Netanyahu coalition in Israel; and Putin’s Russia are growing fast.

This means world conflict is just around the corner of our lives.   Economic transformation is inevitable.

And Diversity in Unity, the rebirth of Love and Truth, spiritual renaissance, and the healing of our Earth is what we intend and must fight for.

Sitting on the sidelines and being a victim to what has happened with the Trump victory will not create the change we need.

Each one of us must work to be the change we want to see in our world, as Ghandi stated.

If we are pulled into fear and hatred and demonizing, we go against the values we believe in that will transform our world into the Age of Aquarius we desire.

This new chapter of our lives brings us a renewed sense of purpose and shows us why we were born at this time in the evolution of the world and human family.

This coming week November 20-26 we move into the 4th quarter Moon phase of the lunar cycle that began at the Scorpio New Moon on October 30.

The election happened during this lunar cycle.  And now as we go through the last quarter Moon, we let the recent events settle in.  We reflect on what has happened and prepare for the next new moon in Sagittarius on November 29.

Speaking of Sagittarius, the Sun moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius this Monday November 21.

We can begin to raise our vibration and get more clear about the meaning of events and meaning for our life.

We can more easily let in inspiration and joy if we are open in our hearts to that.

This will get even stronger at the New Moon in Sagittarius on November 29.

So for now as we move into the last quarter Moon phase and Sun in Sagittarius this week, we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the USA.

It is time to feel gratitude for what we cherish in our lives, to be with people who we love in our hearts.

Till next week,

Leo

Aftermath, Bigger Picture and Astrology Forecast November 13-19

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 12, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Election in America has moved all of us into a New Era of our lives.   So many people I know are deeply upset by the results of that election.  Some of them are feeling deep despair and cannot believe the Universe has taken such (to them) a wrong turn on our path into a new age or new world.

They feel that the last 8 years of President Obama have opened the doors leading to the new age and they hoped that trajectory would continue with the new president. But in their minds it has not with the election of Donald Trump.

This blog has been attempting over the last several months to get us all ready for the Trump win, which in my mind was meant to be.  “You can’t always get what you want”…..but you get what you need.” But why him?

Let’s go back and look at our past and the astrological movements that have unfolded over recent times.

There are three transformational planets: Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.  They have been relatively recently discovered: 1781, 1846, 1930 respectively.

Their discoveries have coincided with our reaching the cusp of the Age of Aquarius.  They are meant to help each of us and our human collective to transform and evolve our consciousness and lives aligned with this new age.

When any two of those three make an aspect with one another it brings a great wave  of transformation, revolution and evolution.

As an example when Uranus made conjunction with Neptune in 1992-1994 the computer and internet revolution began to sweep through our lives. It is now a daily and integral part of all of our lives.  

When Uranus made conjunction with Pluto in 1965-66, it brought on the ’60s and ’70s revolution which dramatically transformed all of our lives as it woke us up to what needed to change in our lives and world.

Back then people sought to end an unjust war in Viet Nam, bring civil rights to race relations and gender issues. Blacks and women were then oppressed in the chains that society had dominated them with.

A corrupt and insensitive USA government was revealed, there was a sexual revolution, there was a clamor for people to take back the world from leaders who took away their individual freedoms and voices.

Yet in the middle of this revolution Richard Nixon was elected to be president in 1968.    This brought such a devastated emotional response from the people, especially young people, who had been previously inspired to transform our country and world. Nixon represented a most restrictive and conservative blockage to the movement forward.

That election combined with the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy that  same year 1968, brought people to their knees in horror, fear and depression.

Nevertheless the revolution continued and before long the war ended and President Nixon resigned from his presidency in the mid ’70s.  Rights for women and African Americans were solidified at that time also. The world had been transformed.

Fast forward to 2011-2016.  Uranus and Pluto have been square to one another, the first major aspect between them since 1965-66 when they were conjunct.

Gays and Lesbians gained the right to marry during that time period.  Ferguson and other cities in the USA erupted in protest at the killings of black people by the police, bringing renewed awareness to racial issues that needed more justice and clearing.

The Islamic State was largely born out of the devastation from another unjust war in Iraq during that time.

Government and Corporate controls of our lives and freedoms were exposed more fully.  The anti Wall Street movement was then born.

Bernie Sanders then in 2015-16 also began his mission to fight the corporations and societal paradigm that separates the wealthy from the 99% who are not very wealthy on this Earth and in America.

The Arab Spring also brought more awareness of dictator control in the Middle East and North Africa.

And in 2016 the presidential election process brought more awareness to the reality of women’s continued fight to be empowered and even more liberated from old societal chains.

And now we have our Richard Nixon in the form of Donald Trump, our new USA president.

The revolution and its attendent motivation for our evolution will be stoked more than ever.

There is no stopping the train barreling toward the Age of Aquarius. No one person or president can derail our movement forward.  But we do need to bring aboard some of those who have not felt understood, who have lost jobs and lives in recent years. And those people voted for Trump.

And as before the young people are revved up to change this world.  And with the empathy and guidance from their elders we will together move forward into this New Age.

So please get up and take responsibility for how you will contribute to this movement.

This week November 13-19 brings a Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus on Monday November 14 at 8:52 AM EST.

Some are calling it a Supermoon as it will be much closer, larger and brighter than usual. It has not been this big since January 1948. In USA it will be best seen on ight of November 13.

More important is the meaning of the Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon.

Like all Full Moons this one takes us to a sense of completion and resolution.

And as it is being formed by the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus, it shows us we are moving toward balancing our more deeply felt passions and emotions (Scorpio) with our sense of solidly and calm (Taurus).

In regards to the election there may be a tug of war inside you between deeply held emotions and passions on the one hand, and a calm centered acceptance on the other hand.

This Full Moon represents a turning point for our attitudes and should be felt from Saturday through Wednesday this coming week, with the most intensity closer to the exact date.

On Saturday November 19 Neptune will be shifting from Retrograde to Direct.  As it goes stationary and then Direct we experience its energy and meaning.

This coming week we will have the Neptunian energies of empathy, compassion, surrender, and escape getting stronger.

Escape may be seductive as a means to ignore reality now.  Empathy is a good trait now to better understand why some people voted the way they did.   For most people it was not about racism and sexism.

And Neptune helps us to surrender- which can help us to let go to a process bigger than we each are, and it can help us to better trust the Universe and its wisdom.

We are all in this together.

Till next week

Leo

Raising Consciousness and Astrology Forecast October 16-22

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 15, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we move closer to Scorpio time of year, intensity and primal passion are building inside our collective human souls.

The presidential election in the USA is already intense yet will get much more so.

Can you believe how low in consciousness Americans are going during this Election Season?

With so many important issues to discuss, the media and candidates are totally obsessed with sexual issues concerning Donald Trump and Bill Clinton.

Though to some extent it is good to address the women’s issues that have come out, and that are important for us as a human family;  this is more about character assassination and mean spirited attacks on one another.

It is no mere coincidence that Wikileaks is now increasing the email dirt against Clinton, while women have now decided a month before election to suddenly come out against Trump.

This is war- not an attempt to look at serious world and American issues.

As we get closer to the Sun moving into Scorpio on October 22 and a Scorpio New Moon on October 30, there are war drums beating that could potentially turn into World War III.

Russia and the USA are seriously challenging one another over Syria; while North Korea keeps testing more nuclear bombs; and forces gather to try to defeat the Islamic State in important Mosul Iraq.

If one tunes into all that or just feels deep inside the collective human unconscious, it is getting more and more apparent that something very big is about to explode in the world.

The only question in my mind is whether this will happen prior to the Election or after it.

Before the Election we have a Full Moon in forceful Aries conjuct Uranus on October 16;   aggressive Mars conjunct guardian of the underworld Pluto on October 19; Mars square Uranus on October 29; and a New Moon in Scorpio on October 30.

Any of these could be a trigger for an important world event, and at the least they suggest darker secrets to be exposed.

The Full Moon has the Sun in Libra opposing Moon conjunct Uranus in Aries at 12:23 AM October 16.

This annual Full Moon usually brings a conflict between desires to make relationship and make peace (Libra) versus a desire to be frank and assertive and thus potentially bring conflict (Aries).  Uranus conjunct the Moon in Aries suggests more weight toward impulsive forceful assertions.

In world events this brings the potential for serious conflict in the world over the next couple of weeks.

In personal lives this could be a wake-up call (Uranus) to transform old relationship patterns and to balance self empowerment (Aries) with a real listening in relationship (Libra).

Some people are very empowered already and need to be more sensitive to others.

Others are usually very accommodating of their mates or friends but tend to be rather small in asserting their own needs.

This Full Moon gives a real opportunity to strike a better balance and to change old relationship patterns that have proven not to work well.

Uranus gives the possibility to wake up outside the usual boxes of thought and to make the changes.

On Ocober 19 Mars conjuncts Pluto.  Conjunct means they share the same space in a 360 degree circle- in this case both at around 15 degrees of Capricorn.

Conjunct means they seek to bring their energies together and in this case in Capricorn. Capricorn wants to build or maintain solid structures or systems. Mars and Pluto together tend to create much potentially explosive power together. They can be ruthless when together.

This can create world conflicts through the ruthless power of the system, the state. or corporate or militay institutions.

In personal lives this can mean a powerful attempt to maintain or create controls.  Be careful this week not to get into power and control battles with others, as they could get nasty.

Instead use this Mars/Pluto aspect to make your self aware of authority or to assert your own authority.

On Saturday October 22 there is a 4th quarter Moon in Cancer as the Sun makes its annual move into Scorpio.

This may bring a feeling of being “brought down”.   Resist the temptation to get depressed, and instead use it to go deeper inside to see what is real and true for you.

Scorpio helps us to get in touch with deeper soul issues, to see inside the veils of secrecy.  It also helps us to find our passion and to honor our more primal instincts.

4th quarter Moons alert us to “wrap things up” and to prepare for the next new moon- this one to be in Scorpio on October 30.

We are in a collective transition into a whole new chapter of our lives.  The Election here in the USA is an obvious symbol that things are changing.

An important way to change is in consciousness.   If we keep trying to create enemies and keep trying to demonize others we stay locked in old consciousness.

Yes we need to create boundaries betwen what we believe and stand for, and what others believe and stand for.  But we do not need to make us the good guys, and them the bad guys.

It is a difference of opinion and lifestyle, not a reason to hate or destroy.

Till next week,

Leo

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
