Pluto Releasing the Old and Astrology Forecast April 22-28

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo

Black Panther and Astrology Forecast April 8-14

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo

The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth and Astrology Forecast April 1-7

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 31, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move into the waning half of the lunar cycle that began on March 17 at the Pisces New Moon.

The Full Moon in Libra earlier today March 31 brings us into the slow dimming of the light of the Moon.

At the same time we are in the middle of Mercury Retrograde, a time to reflect on our lives,  and to rewind into what has happened previously in our lives.

Coupled with the waning half of the lunar cycle it is obviously a time to go inward, to process, and to prepare for action forward after April 15 when there is an Aries New Moon and Mercury going back direct.

This coming week we also have the stop signs of Sun square Saturn and Mercury square Saturn.  The Sun and Mercury are in Aries and Saturn is in Capricorn.

The Sun and Mercury in Aries signify desires to think ahead, to act, to make new beginnings.

Saturn in Capricorn, a sign that makes Saturn stronger, tells us to wait before acting, to stay put so we can do what we need to do, decide what we need to decide.

There is no running away from the hand of time Saturn, who tells us when it is time for something to be done or decided.

Saturn is also gravity which pulls us down into what we cannot escape.

So the Aries planets are in a rush, while Saturn tells us to be patient till it is Time to go forward.

So now with Saturn strong, Mercury Retrograde, and in the waning half of the lunar cycle; we are waiting until the gate opens on April 15.

In most cases it will not be time to rush through the gate, but instead to  just be aware that you are no longer restricted.

Then as Mercury gets back to speed, (a week to 10 days later), and the energies are ready to be put into forward motion (maybe not till May or June), we move forward in a quite strong fashion.

World events will begin to move though the gate, but will not pour in until May or June or even in the summer during another Eclipse Season.

But there will be a sense that nothing can hold you back, and nothing can be held back. There is a “grand opening” and a new day has dawned.

But still this week and next we are wanting to get more clear in our thinking so we can make sound decisions.  We are preparing for what comes next, we are doing what we need to do, we are facing up to what we need to face up to.

It will feel like there is little room to move within, and not much chance to evade, avoid, and escape.

It is almost time now.  Be patient a while longer.  Don’t push the river to flow faster.

In the greater world, we are on the cusp of great change.  Everything is  being set up now for what is coming soon.

And our individual lives are a microcosm for what is happening in the world macrocosm.

We are in the process of getting more clear, of choosing direction, of knowing what we want and need.

With the Aries influence now it may be quite difficult for some to not want to push through the gate and get going.

That would likely be a big mistake. Even if you feel you have gotten more clear of what needs to be done, or what direction you need to take, wait to act on in till after the New Moon in Aries on April 15.

And that New Moon in Aries will be conjunct liberator and awakener Uranus.  You may feel blocked or stuck now, but soon you will taken outside whatever box you may feel you are locked inside of.

And in the greater world, right before the New Moon in Aries and Mercury Direct on April 15, on April 14 Jupiter is sextile Pluto forming a Yod or “Finger of God” configuration with the USA natal Mars.

This means there are turning points in military and police affairs.  Look at the turmoil and violence already erupting in Gaza of the Palestinian territories.  And in mid May the USA moves its embassy to Jerusalem, further incensing Arabs and Muslims:turning point.

And the summit between North Korea and the USA is scheduled for May also: turning point

And in domestic affairs, gun debates (very Mars) after the Parkland Florida mass murder keep getting stronger.  It is time to deal with this issue in a way that will help solve the problem.

And in Sacramento the police are being fingered by many as perpetrators killing an unarmed African American again.  This issue is coming to a head now in the USA.

And of course the revelations of sexual abuse of power are still very important.

These are all quite arguably USA Mars issues that are all ripe for dramatic change.

So the “Finger of God” aspect encompassing the USA natal Mars is bringing important turning points for all these issues.  The USA is at a crossroads with military/police/power/gun issues.

Will we turn toward more peaceful and sane ways, and listen to the voices we have previously silenced, or will we choose to get even more dominating and bullying?

These are truly the times we have been waiting for, times to speak up and create change no matter how difficult it may seem.

The Age of Aquarius is on our doorstep and is waiting for us to help transform this world.

It is our world, not a world to be dominated by power abusers, the greedy, and the privileged.

We can change this world if we turn to love not fear, if we turn to truth not lies. Things change from the inside out.

Christ is said to have stated that “the meek shall inherit the Earth”. I believe that means that those who are humble and peaceful and kind are the hope for this Earth and world.

Till next week,

Leo

Mercury Retrograde, Spring Equinox and Astrology Forecast March 18-24

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week with Mars entering Capricorn, New Moon  in Pisces, Spring Equinox and Mercury Retrograde.

This means the energy fields we move within are changing this week.  The changes will shift our consciousness and lives in preparation for the Portal Opening on April 15.

It is obvious now that the greater world and culture we reside within is in a chaotic and not so predictable state of being.   The White House is reflective of this state of being, and it is in shambles, and always in some sort of transition.

And of course whether you feel in alignment with the new Administration or not, this Administration and its volatility are a symbol of the condition of the USA right now.

The Stock Market and economy; the Mueller probe; the porn actress’s accusations; the growing dangers with Iran, Syria, Israel, North Korea; the trade wars; and the macho strutting with Russia and China put all of us on our toes waiting for even greater changes.

We are in the midst of an enormous transformation of the country and world.

Trump is not causing the chaotic climate that makes us ripe for such transformation. He is instead a lead actor on the world stage, just the right actor to help facilitate world events that will take us to the edge of darkness,  so we can call on the Phoenix who will rise from the ashes of our old paradigm’s burning.

Some are already getting into survivalist mode, while others not as alarmed are  still being called to make changes in their consciousness and lives, changes that are aligned with the world we are moving into.

Others of us are not sure what direction to move toward, and are seemingly waiting for events to unfold to show the way.

The next few weeks will not show us clear direction, however, especially so because Mercury is going Retrograde on March 22 at 8:19 PM EDT.

As usual the ‘re’s will in charge during Mercury Retrograde: rewind, reflect, readjust, rebalance, remind, realign.

There is much processing to do now, as it is not time now to move toward bottom line decisions and even bottom line logical answers.

Allow Mercury Retrograde to have you go inward to reflect, to question what has been previously understood or decided, to bring to you memories of the past and to bring back people to you from your past.

The people from the past will likely not stay with you after they return, though sometimes they do.  The questioning of previous understandings and decisions does not mean you will truly change your direction from what you have chosen, but sometimes it does.

The New Moon in Pisces this Saturday the 17th was at 9:12 AM EDT.  Though it is a New Moon, Pisces is not a sign of action to move forward.

Pisces brings everything together in integration and unity, to get ready for the movement forward later, this time after the New Moon in Aries on April 15.

Pisces is the sign for the last month of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the transition sign for moving into new beginnings of Spring.

As such we now do soul searching, shadow integration, and getting in touch with deeper feelings;  especially feelings of sadness and grief, of fading memories, of snapshots of previously not remembered early life events.

We face ghosts of the past,  want to resolve old issues, and hopefully find some closure.

This Pisces time we are doing even deeper soul diving than usual, wanting to gather everything together in anticipation of the coming forward movement in our lives, collectively and personally.

There may be some energetic confusion as we also experience the beginning of spring this week.  It is on Tuesday March 20 at 12:15 PM EDT.

This is the first moment of the Sun’s movement into Aries, as it does to begin every Spring Equinox.

Aries is the force of new life buds bursting through the branches. It is a baby being born, a teenager’s awkward movement form childhood to adulthood.  It is a new challenge, a competition, showing a new way, standing up for yourself or what you believe in, being brave even when you are afraid,  fighting the good fight, self assertion, self honoring, alpha attitude, and taking action.

The confusion may come from the fact that Mercury is going Retrograde and there is a need to process and rewind before truly moving forward.

So use this Spring Equinox Aries entry to begin to wake yourself up! Winter is over, even if the weather still feels like Winter.  The turning point energetically is happening this week, so get in touch with that energy and wake your self from the doldrums of Winter, from being kinda depressed from such a harsh and difficult winter.

No need to go fast forward, just wake up. Soon there will be the need for action and for fresh events to manifest. But not now. Even action oriented Mars is being affected by the gravity of Capricorn now.

It moved into Capricorn on the 17th at the New Moon in Pisces. It will stay in Capricorn until May 16, when it goes into Aquarius.

But this year Mars will go back into Capricorn from mid August till Mid September.

The reason is because Mars goes Retrograde on June 26, then retraces its previous steps.

Mars in Capricorn takes away the spontaneous and sometimes impulsive instinct of Mars.

Mars puts on a uniform of military or police when in Capricorn, giving it discipline and boundaries, rules and structure to act within.

So with Mars now in Capricorn, it is time to ground your actions, to make goals and commitments, to organize and plan, to make manifest.

Just remember that we are in Mercury Retrograde until April 15, so there may be some confusion till then, and if you are not that confused, you will still need to wait before manifesting or making absolute statements.

After April 15 the train of our lives starts it engines, but remember that Mercury will just begin to be Direct that day, so total clarity may still need to form, and movement will still not be fast forward. Big events will likely be a few weeks or a few months away then.

So with all this knowledge look at the country and world.  The White House will still be rearranging the deck chairs of its Titanic voyage.

There  will be more employee firings and hirings this coming month, more drama and confusion, more setting the stage for coming events.

Trump is planning to meet with Kim Jong Un in April or May; the USA is moving its embassy to Jerusalem in May. Other important world events will spring forward in April, May and later this year.

Your life and consciousness are working out  what needs to be worked out now. Do your best not to judge your self now or what you did or didn’t do in the past.

Let go of old stories that keep you stuck.  Let go of old stories that make you feel like a victim or loser or failure or horrible person.

The past, no matter what it was, is a stepping stone for your life as it grows and transforms into one of purpose and authenticity, one of love and forgiveness.

Love yourself from all time periods and ages of your life. Have compassion for your self, for the seeming mistakes you might have made. Forgive yourself and others as best you can organically.

It is almost time for us all to move forward more fully into this New Chapter of our lives on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

And the less baggage we take with us from our past the better.  No you will not be able to tie a pretty bow on all those traumas and disappointments, disillusions and heart wounds.

But you can forgive, learn to trust enough, and have faith all happens with meaning.

You can gain enough closure to be able to move forward. But do not despair if all has not been worked out to total satisfaction. It never is perfect.

Till next week,

Leo

Stand Up and Astrology Forecast March 11-17

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Most of this week has us in the last quarter of the lunar cycle.   That is until The New Moon in Pisces on Saturday March 17 at 9:12 AM EDT.

Yes for most we will be on Daylight Savings Time starting this Sunday the 18th.  So in a way we get mixed messages.   We get more waking light minutes of the day, while still in the dark of Winter and while moving through the last and darkening phase of the Moon.

Spring will begin next week on March 20th, but then will be closely followed by Mercury going Retrograde on March 22.

There is so much swirling in the world around us now, and much of it brings uncertainty and has us moving into unknown territory.

Trump and Kim Jong Un of North Korea seem to have agreed on a personal meeting that will apparently concentrate on North Korea denuclearizing.  With Mercury going Retrograde soon, there will likely be many difficulties on the path toward a meeting and denuclearizing.

Between now and April 15 at the Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus, Mercury going back Direct, and a Yod Finger of God aspect with the USA natal Mars, much will be shifting and changeable. 

That Finger of God to the USA natal Mars will be a major turning point for the USA military, the police, and gun laws.

North Korea will either look like a major conflict is on the way, or instead it will be more certainly moving toward a peaceful solution.  The meeting between the two leaders is intended to be by May.

And the USA is moving its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem also in May.  This could be cause for much anger in the Arab and Muslim world.

So you can see how the April 15 portal opening that includes the Yod to the USA Mars, may play out with North Korea and Israel/Palestine.

Keep in mind also that Donald Trump was born on a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius.  That new moon has the Sun at 22+ degrees Gemini and his Moon at 21+ degrees of Sagittarius. The USA natal Mars is at 21+ degrees of Gemini, so you can see that what is coming will powerfully affect both the USA and Donald Trump.

A few days later on the 18th, Saturn goes Retrograde and its gravitational certainty will be circulating strongly in our collective energy field. The feeling of fate is in the air then

Make no mistake about it, mid April is a major turning point for this country and world.

That does not mean big events will necessarily explode on that day, but it does mean the portal will open for major events coming soon afterward.

The stock market and economy also deserve attention now and after the portal opens.

Trump’s presidency also is being threatened now, as the Russia investigation keeps picking up steam. After the 15th events will accelerate even more.

Remember however, that this coming week of March 11- 17 will bring energies that are moving inward and yin-ward, downward and for finishing up and processing.

So many personal lives are now up in the air, waiting for coming changes or uncertain what to do or what direction to take.

And certainty will be even more elusive as we get into Mercury Retrograde soon.

So do your best now to be patient and wait. Otherwise you will get anxious and stressed, or depressed.  Sometimes we must wait for clarity and direction to appear, as linear bottom line answers do not easily form.

Yet there is much to be gained in the process of waiting.  Our souls can be very enriched while processing our thoughts and feelings, while meeting up against our hopes and fears, while learning more about ourselves and others.

In the greater world, so much has shifted in the last couple of years or so.    The paradigm the world has known is obviously shifting, even with the difficulties and disappointments we are now experiencing.

We are also being reminded of what is wrong with our world. Why has fame and fortune become the American Dream?  Even in many so-called liberal circles, wealth and notoriety, pedigree and privilege are such a high priority to gain.

Where have the values of our “better angels” gone?  Where has our empathy and compassion gone? How about kindness, integrity, truth, honesty, dignity, respect, and heart centered love?

Why does it seem that money, power, and privilege have become culturally more important than those values?

What kind of world are we delivering to our kids and grandkids?

I heard one young man who survived the Florida school massacre say to Bill Maher on his show:  Paraphrased he passionately said that previous generations have f’d up our world and so this new generation will have to fix it.

And are we setting an example for them? How many have given up their more idealistic  values from their youth because the “real” world has disillusioned and disappointed them, so they decided to play the game instead of keeping the integrity of their better values? And in the process, what has happened to their souls.

For those who have done that, you can work to bring those values back now so we can fight with these kids for a New Paradigm for living with each other and or Earth home.

And following the rules is not the same as holding better values.  Inner values reflect what your mind, heart, and soul know to be true, known to be what brings us together with respect and love.

It is time for each of us to speak up for what we know is right, as has begun to happen with women who are speaking up like never  before, and like how young people are beginning to speak up about guns, etc.

Yet it is time for all of us to stand up and speak our truth.  Keeping quiet is the same as agreeing.  It enables the bad behavior and bad attitudes.

And in your personal life too, you do not need to keep quiet about what is bothering you.  You can stand up and speak your truth.

The condition of your life is your responsibility.  You are not a helpless victim.

The condition of our world is our collective responsibility. We are not victims.

We the people are the ones who will transform the world into the Age of Aquarius.

Don’t concentrate on those who seem to not be redeemable and who will not change.

Focus on attracting those who want to bring the Age of Aquarius values to the real world- as you do.

It is a waste of time trying to convince others to believe.

Be confident in what you believe, and be an example for others to follow. Who you are speaks volumes.

Till next week

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.
