Group Action and Astrology Forecast January 21-27.

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 20, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Sun just went into Aquarius on January 19, and on January 20 is the Women’s March.

This is a follow-up to last year’s march, which yelled loud and clear the power of women in their desire to end sexual abuse, power abuse, and generally unfair gender conditions in the USA and world.

Eclipse Season began last week, and on January 31 there is the first of two eclipses in a row.  It is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo. Then on February 15 there is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.

This Eclipse Season, with an emphasis on Aquarius, is very much about group power.  So the Women’s March is very aligned with that focus.

As we have stated before Leo and Aquarius are in large part about power of the One (Leo) and power of the Group (Aquarius).

The Women’s March last January 21 2017 happened also during Sun in Aquarius, but this year group action of Women is more influential than it was then.

This is partly because we are in Eclipse Season already this year, but it is also because of the sexual and power abuse revelations recently.

And as we get deeper this year into Winter 2018 Eclipse Season, we will see more group social action as well as more executive action against the voices of the group.

The Senate right now has asserted its power to shut down the government in reaction to Trump’s executive desire to put through a funding bill that is aligned with what he wants.

I believe we can expect this Eclipse Season, especially so as we get close to the Aquarius Solar Eclipse on February 15, even more powerful group action.

That could very well include group actions counter to the USA power base, as well as stronger attempts to impeach and/or dis-empower the President of the USA.

In that regard there will be more conflict around the Israeli/Palestinian issue. The UN already passed a policy to negate the American unilateral decision to recognize Jerusalem as the sole Capital of Israel.

In your own life, are you a member of any socially conscious groups that you feel quite resonant with?

Do you usually feel like an outsider in group situations? Do you prefer a strong leader over a committee of people?

Aquarius is an interesting sign in that it is about two seemingly very different traits.

Aquarius is about being different than the norm, very individualistic and sometimes considered weird.

At the same time Aquarius is about being in a group, with a group cause.

So it seems one will either be estranged from the group because it does not fit in, or it fits into the group, often by “wearing the same uniform” as everyone else.

And this is where we get to Aquarius at its  best being “Diversity within Unity”.

When one can be distinctly individualized, true to one’s uniqueness, yet at the same time within the Unity of the group, Aquarius is best fulfilled.

And how does Leo, its polar opposite, fit into this equation?

Leo, whose ruling “planet” is the Sun, can provide the fuel of energy to the group as a leader in alliance with the group intentions.  The Sun in the solar system provides the light and warmth to the planets travelling around it, not dominating but facilitating their actions and life.

The heart is the part of the body affiliated with the Sun and Leo.  And the heart (and heart chakra)  provides the fuel of energy for the body and soul to be alive. The circulatory system is Aquarius the water bearer, delivering the lifeblood through the body’s network.

So this Eclipse Season, how can you best balance your group and social principles (Aquarius) with your personal heart’s desires (Leo)?

Too much Aquarius puts one too focused on one’s mind, figuring what is most socially conscious.  Too much Leo puts a person too much in one’s heart for what is attractive and serves one’s desires..

For instance, shopping for a car can be about getting one that is good for the environment and best for the family and family wallet (Aquarius).  Or it can be focused on getting the shiny red one that opens up one’s heart with happiness (Leo).

In world dynamics, too much Leo gives us a dictator. Too much Aquarius gives us a legislative body, group or committee that gets nothing done.

So the Sun is in Aquarius this week,  and the lunar cycle is in the waxing half of its cycle, moving toward a powerful climax at the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius/Leo on January 31.

Mid week Mercury will be conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, tending our minds toward deep and serious thought and communication.

And then on Friday the 26th of January, Mars will leave deep, intense, and sometimes darkly brooding Scorpio; for fiery, inspired, joyful, adventurous and sometimes impulsive Sagittarius.  It will stay in Sagittarius until the 17th of March.

This adds some yang Fire to the mostly yin Earth and Water we have been slushing through.

Mars in Sagittarius will open up our life energy portals, tending more toward action, upliftment, and wanting to “jump right in”.

That is only 5 days before the Lunar Eclipse, so energies in general are then intensifying, causing more possibility for breakdowns and breakthroughs in our consciousness and lives.

Change and transformation are swirling through our lives more, and if you want to unchain yourself from stuck situations, people, or thought, this Eclipse Season is a great time to do so.

For Eclipse Season, in the world keep your eye on  the Russia-gate investigation, the Winter Olympics in Korea, and increasing tension in Syria and Israel/Palestine. These and other world situations will become more important. Look at the stock market and economy closely too for signs of coming changes.

In your own personal life, stay on your toes for potential change, open your mind and heart to life more than before, yet at the same time keep your sanity and stay centered.

As always meditation is one of the best aids during times of intensity and change.

All that happens is for a reason and for what is best for your soul’s journey.

So know that the change and transformation in your life now has purpose, especially so if you have purpose for your life.

Till next week,

Leo

Beginning Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast January 14-20.

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Making it Real and Astrology Forecast January 7-13

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

That New Moon also opens up Winter 2018 Eclipse Season.  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo

New Year 2018 and Astrology Forecast December 31- January 6

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

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2018 intensity begins early this year.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

till next week

Leo

Bless the World and Astrology Forecast December 24-30

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 23, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving through a turning point now as we have experienced the New Moon in Sagittarius, Winter Solstice conjunct Saturn and Mercury finally going Direct.

And this was an especially difficult Mercury Retrograde for many, with many people reporting difficulties with electronics and technology, as well as challenges with cars.

Did you also experience people or memories coming back into your life?  Did you feel tempted to make big decisions? Did you feel confusion or difficulty in your thinking? Were you challenged in understanding what others communicated to you, or did others have difficulty understanding you?  Did you question what you had previously decided or what directions to take in your life?

Well now clarity will begin to form, and if you wait another week or so, you can be more sure that what you are thinking or deciding is correct.

This is a challenging time to be on the Earth in America.  We have never experienced a President like Trump.  Many are very worried about the direction the USA is taking and what its future will bring.

Trump is part of the downfall of an Empire and Superpower. It is meant to fall as did the other Superpower, the Soviet Union, in the 1990’s.

This is all a clearing of an old paradigm from an old Age.  Abuse of Power is its name, and the scandals of sexual power abuse are out in the open here in the United States.

This was part of an old cultural paradigm for relationships between men and women.  This is dying too.

Speaking of abuse of power,  are you aware of what  happened at the UN this last week?

The USA and Trump declared Jerusalem to be the Capital of Israel, effectively denying the Palestinians and Islamic World of their part of Jerusalem, as previously defined by UN resolutions.

UN members last week put out a new resolution condemning Trump’s declaration and reiterating their allegiance to East Jerusalem being the Capital of the Palestinians.

Nikki Haley, diplomatic head of the USA for the UN, threatened to remember who would vote against them in this new resolution.  She made it obvious that the USA would consider holding back money from those countries.

Nevertheless, a vast majority of nations still condemned the USA declaration of Jerusalem as only the possession of Israel, with an overwhelming vote against that USA declaration.

It is so important now for each of us to distinguish between healthy empowerment and abuse of power.

Holding power over others to take what you want from them is abuse of power.  Using power to destroy others is abuse of power.

Empowering yourself in order to stand up for yourself or stand up for what you believe in is healthy power. And that is important for us to be able to move into a new paradigm and Age of Aquarius.

In using power wisely and appropriately, we are not putting ourselves above others, but we are not putting ourselves below others either.

The Diversity within Unity paradigm needs for power to be distributed amongst people or nations.  In that regard we are moving toward a Multi Polar global community of nations, without superpowers or dominating Empires.

Equality, and inalienable rights to self determination preclude any nation from demanding how another nation lives, unless that nation directly injures other nations.

Our capitalistic democracy should not be forced on any other culture or nation. And every nation has a right to defend itself, especially against a country (USA) that has more weapons of mass destruction than anyone else and is the only one to have used them, killing thousands of other humans in Japan to end World War II.

We need to treat other countries as equals, and learn to listen and have dialogue with them.   Threatening to destroy them creates an atmosphere that promises violence and destruction.  And of course they in turn will threaten to destroy us. Old Paradigm is what needs to be destroyed.

As we move closer to 2018 this coming week, we begin to take in the reality of Saturn moving into Capricorn at the Winter Solstice.

Saturn in Capricorn conjunct the Winter Solstice Sun happened last in 1644, so it is a rare occurrence.

And it is part of the signature of the winter season we have now entered. Collectively we face events this winter that will have a great influence on the direction of our world and human family.  Saturn is the hand of time, gravity,  strict rules, clear definitions, endings, commitments, and “fated” events.

And also this winter we will experience 2 eclipses: A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on January 31, and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.

That Solar Eclipse will be directly opposite the powerful Total Solar Eclipse from August 2017.

What was begun then will be taken to the next level this winter 2018 Eclipse Season.

This week Venus moves out of Sagittarius and conjuncts that Saturn in Capricorn on Monday Christmas Day.

We may experience in our relationships a deeper sense of reality or acceptance of what we cannot deny anymore. This could have an effect on family situations this holiday.

Also on Christmas Day the Moon will be in Pisces, a good sign to be able to feel Christ consciousness, an ability for empathy and compassion for others.

We also continue this week to be in the waxing half of the lunar cycle that began at the Sagittarius New Moon last week.

The waning last half begins on New Year’s Day January 1, at the Full Moon in Cancer, to be followed the next day by Uranus turning Direct.  We of course will talk more about that next week.

I will also do some forecasting about 2018 in next week’s blog. Then early in the new year I will put out a podcast and a video Forecast for 2018.

For those of you who resonate with the holidays, I hope they are meaningful and full of love.  And for those of you who do not, I also hope these days are meaningful and full of love.

Till next week,

Leo

Endings and Astrology Forecast December 10-16.

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 9, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving downward, inward and yin-ward this week as we experience the waning last quarter of the lunar cycle.

Overnight from the 7th into the 8th of December, the Sun in Sagittarius squares the Moon in Virgo.  That begins the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the Scorpio New Moon on November 18.

Then on December 18 that lunar cycle ends at the usually uplifting Sagittarius New Moon. 

Later that week, on the 21st,  the darkest day of the year brings us to the return of more light on Winter Solstice.

Then on December 22 Mercury goes back Direct. 

So the week of the 18th brings a much needed turning point of new beginnings and a deeper sense that the glass of life is half full, not half empty.

The celebration of the birth of new hope that week extends its reach to Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve and day.

In contrast, this week December 10- 16, continues the drop into darker days and feelings.

The process of transformation shows us shedding the skins of the old Chapter of our consciousness and life.   And that process also shows us the light of our new world, the birth of a new way.

As we shed old skins we can feel the truth of death, carried by the coffin of our old ways, beliefs, and life.

The dark phase of the last quarter moon;  the last phase of the darkening solar light before Winter Solstice;  the last part of Mercury Retrograde, and the last part of 2017 all come together now.

The past may be flashing before your eyes now, allowing you to say goodbye, to grieve, and to purge and release.

As you look out into the dramas of our society, know that there is not only an old year and old chapter dying, but an over 2,000 year old Age is coming to an end too.

The dysfunctional and toxic old paradigm beliefs encourage us to see everything in win/lose, perpetrator/victim, predator/prey, survival of the fittest , “get what you can for you and yours” ways.

As we learn to truly listen to each other from our open minds and hearts, while at the same time holding our own integrity and values, we come out of that old programmed paradigm. Finding the connections lights our new path.

Open minds search for truth, each person’s truth, and thus the potential for some kind of agreement.  Open hearts have love guiding them to the threads of connection between everyone and everything.

And self acceptance, self honoring, self worth, self love, and self empowerment, allows each of us to be the best we can be in all endeavors and relationships. It also helps us to not give ourselves away as a sacrifice to the worst in others.  Self loathing enables the worst behavior in others.

Evolution will not be stopped. The dinosaurs among us are screaming and fighting to be able to live in the old ways, and take me and you with them.

We enable them if we stay in awe of those who have celebrity, wealth, and privilege.

Donald Trump show us the results of keeping that old belief system of some being superior to those who must be their inferiors.  And of course those superiors deserve the privileges of having more too.

The cream does not rise to the top of that old world, the crud does.

Release, release, release this week; surrender to the Universe and your soul’s wisdom. Let it end, whatever needs to end.  Do not hold onto any security blankets that keep you clinging to what you no longer really need anymore.

Trust that the Soul’s and Universe’s process will bring the birth light at the right time and in the right way.

This week, as we move down into more endings in the last quarter of the lunar cycle with Mercury still Retrograde; we also experience Mars leaving Libra and entering Scorpio on the 9th.

It will stay in Scorpio till January 26, just before the first of two eclipses, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo.

As Mars leaves Libra for Scorpio, voices and attempts at temperance and civility will be less respected and heard in much of the greater world.

More hawkish elements of our governments will want to dominate more.   Power struggles will get more fierce.  Remember the best of Mars in Scorpio is power serving a greater cause.  And love is the greatest cause.

Stay in your loving heart.  Empower yourself from that place. That brings a power that can change the world in the best of ways.

And in early 2018, as the next Eclipse Season opens up new portals of truth and love for those aligned and centered to receive; waves of change will be larger and encompass more.

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15 will bring a strong wave of the Age of Aquarius through community uprisings and attempts to overthrow those in power who are leading us backwards.  Impeachment voices should be getting much stronger then.

Administration attempts to distract our attention through world conflicts will be stronger then too.

Jerusalem has been added to the Koreas as a world hot spot.    Trump stating that Jerusalem is the sole capital of Israel is inflaming so much of the Arab and Muslim world.

Countries in the Middle East and all over the world are picking sides now.  World conflict is inevitable now.

The chaos will bring with it more ability to release and purge, more openings for the new world to come through.

The old programming is leaving the consciousness of each of us and though it has given us a distorted sense of security, it has also brought damage to our hearts and souls, our free minds and spirits, our sense of connections with each other and all life.

Our spiritual potential will get stronger and stronger, as will creative power, magic, and synchronicity,

New voices and leaders will emerge.  The Age of Aquarius will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes of our old paradigm and Age.

As you release and let go this week, keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde. It is Ok now to question what you have already chosen and the direction you are moving in, but do not act on that yet.

Wait till after the 22nd when it goes back Direct, and wait for the turning points later this year that will shift your perception to life’s half full viewpoint.

till next week,

Leo

Power and Astrology Forecast October 8-14.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 7, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week we navigated through a strong Aries Full Moon.  So therefore this week we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle, and we will continue that downward journey until a New Moon in Libra on October 19.

The big news this week, however, in that expansive Jupiter leaves Libra and enters Scorpio on October 10. It will stay there for one year.

Jupiter has been in Libra for the last year. And as we wrote last week Jupiter has a twelve year cycle and so comes back to the same sign every 12 years.  It was last in Scorpio in 2006.

What was your life like back in 2006, especially in regards to issues of passion, power, and primal instincts.  And what was that year like for personal transformation?  Did you release what needed to be let go, and did you allow those transformational energies to start you on a new path.  That could be in any area of life: work, relationship, home, etc.

Out in the global arena of life in 2006 Israel had a war with Hezbollah of Lebanon, but most especially pertinent to today, in 2006 North Korea tested for the first time a nuclear weapon.

Scorpio is energetically about power, which can translate into war, and certainly into bombs or nuclear bombs.  It is interesting that nuclear weapons are made of Plutonium or Uranium.

Of course two of the three transformational planets in astrology are Uranus and Pluto.  And Pluto which is power, is most like a nuclear weapon.  And Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio.

While Jupiter was in Libra, it showed expansiveness in issues of making relationship, creating beauty, finding balance, and keeping peace.

Jupiter in Scorpio takes the gloves off, gets beyond the pretty wrappings, and gets down to real business- at the core of truth and reality.

This year we learn to open up previously hidden secrets, go beyond mere politeness, and tell our deeper truth from a more instinctual place inside.

Passion comes back stronger than before, and shows us what we really desire at a core level of our being.  Sexuality is ruled by Scorpio also, and will tend to expand more fully into your life this coming year.

In the global picture, as Jupiter moves into Scorpio this week,  issues with Syria, Israel, Iran, and North Korea will intensify.

Powerful storms or earthquakes will return.  Power struggles may tend to be more nasty.

People tend to demonize Scorpio, ruled by the guardian of the Hades underworld planet Pluto.

Civil society tends to want to banish Scorpio, religion can make it seem sinful.

In reality it is a darkness, but that darkness is natural- not bad or good.

In the yin/yang symbol there is light and dark, yin and yang, brought together in wholeness.

Dark minutes of the day are equal with light minutes of the day- over a year’s time.

It is like a negative electrical charge, which is neither good or bad.

If that darkness or passion, that depth of powerful emotion is suppressed or repressed for too long, it becomes a monster when finally let out.

Scorpio is about power, and on a young soul that easily becomes “power over” or power dominating others.

In a more mature soul it is empowerment, personal empowerment, an ability to stand strong. It is not about domination, but is about passion.

Both Hitler and Gandhi were prominent when Pluto (ruler of Scorpio) was discovered in 1930.

There is the difference in how power can manifest in a human.  Gandhi used his power to empower the Indian people to stand up peacefully to the Empire of England. This began the liberation of the people of India.

So as Jupiter travels into Scorpio, do not be afraid that you will be like those people who abused their power and abused you.

Go down deep inside and make sure your inner power is not ruled by your desire to hurt or bully someone else.   But if you can use the anger to empower yourself to be a self respecting individual, you will be OK.

A day before Jupiter enters Scorpio on October 10, Mercury and the Sun will square Scorpionic Pluto.  So already you will feel the power want to come to the surface.

Sunday the 8th through Friday the 13th will likely present us with storms, of one sort or another.

An actual storm like a hurricane, or an energetic storm like North Korea flexing its nuclear muscle, or Trump moving toward confrontation with Iran, will likely manifest during that time period.

And speaking of Friday the 13th this coming week, that superstition has its roots in a cultural patriarchal fear of the Feminine.

I believe that connection with Friday the 13th is likely because in many western countries Friday is Venus Day, as in Italy it is Venerdi (Venus day). In English speaking countries it is Friday, named after Venus like Goddess Frieda.

And 13 is known as a number of the Feminine, as there are 13 lunar cycles of the year and 13 womanly cycles of a year, so to speak.

The Power of the Mysteries of the Feminine are feared in this world, as was the power of the “witches”, demonized and abused by so-called christian society. Power of the Masculine and Feminine are meant to be equal, not at war.

Pluto/Scorpio also rules the world of the Occult and Feminine Mystery Powers.  Watch the power of that Feminine increase in strength as Jupiter moves through Scorpio this coming year.

Goddess Kali will be more empowered, so that arrogance and inflated ego can be eliminated.

Open more this year to the mystery of life, as all in this Universe and Earthly world is not governed by logic and left brain linear ego thought.

Surrender to that mystery and observe how transformation gets more powerful, so that the cycles of death and birth can live within that transformational process.

till next week,

Leo
