Love and Truth and Astrology Forecast April 23- 29

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 22, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving through the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the Aries New Moon on March 27.

Important events that could lead to more explosive events erupted during this Aries lunar cycle.

Russia, Iran, North Korea, United States, Syria, and Israel are all very triggered by these recent events.  Actually the whole world may be affected ultimately by these events.

So during the 4th quarter we review what has happened during the Aries lunar cycle, and get ready for new beginnings at the New Moon in Taurus this Wednesday April 26.

What has opened up for you personally since March 27?   What are you needing to move into more fully, or move on from? What still needs to be healed and transformed?

Mercury is still Retrograde and Venus was Retrograde during much of this lunar cycle, till April 15 when Venus went back Direct.

What has been happening in your important relationships?  Have you been taken back to old patterns you thought you had moved beyond.

Do you now have more clarity about those relationships?

If not keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde until May 3, when it goes back Direct. Total clarity may have to wait until then or more likely a week or so after it goes back direct.

Big decisions that will importantly affect your life would be better off waiting until then.

More pull to “how it used to be” may continue for you.  Do your best to resist feeling your old reality is your reality again.

You may be revisiting old places in your Old Chapter of life, so you can better know what your New Chapter needs are.

There is a process of integration of the past going on, so you do not forget “where you came from”.

There will be a feeling of moving forward more at the New Moon in Taurus on April 26 at 8:16 AM EDT.

Taurus takes in, manifests in reality, and then holds onto tightly.

So whatever was begun during the Aries lunar cycle will tend to take hold after the Taurus New Moon.   If that which began in the Aries cycle has no real “life” to it, it will not take hold.  It will not be made manifest.

Looking at the recent world events, look closely at what has unfolded from them, especially after the New Moon on the 26, and even more so after Mercury goes Direct on May 3.

Are those events merely the past coming back for a look-see again, or are those events more indicative of what is truly brewing in our world.

Taurus is fixed Earth and when it grabs something it does not let go.

So if you have started something recently, if it is aligned and alive, the Taurus New Moon will tend to make it more real and grounded.

Taurus likes to make things more secure and comfortable.  That is why money and other resources like real estate are under the umbrella of Taurus.

Taurus is the Earth and our earthly bodies.   It wants to let us know that our bodies can be a pleasurable experience, and it does so in part by enlivening our senses.

Tasty and healthy food therefore is important for Taurus as a result.

During Taurus time we also can usually calm down from the fiery energy of Aries. Everything seeks to slow down and relax.   But you may then feel rather bored if you seek a lot of passion and intensity.

Those recent world events that brought conflict will now either calm down appreciably or be made more real and manifest.

This summer, especially near the August Eclipses, we will experience the fallout from some of the recent events.

We are truly in a new zone now and sometimes you will feel confused or “out of sorts” and unbalanced.

Your body may go through some temporary shifts too,  shifts that feel like you might be sick or that something might be wrong with you.

Let whatever it is play out to see if it stays or not. In most cases it will be temporary, as we are all being shifted in our minds, souls, and bodies by new energies.

Stay open and present as much as you can now.  Realize old wounds and traumas may tend to be triggered, so please do your best to not be carried away by overreacting.

These new energies want to move into you, and when they confront the blocks in your system, the ones that developed from your old wounds and traumas, they may trigger old reactions.

Remember that these old traumas can be transformed.  You can then see that what has happened to you in the past can be a motivation to empower yourself, to improve yourself, and to have empathy for others who have suffered.

You may have been victimized but you are not a victim.  Victim consciousness disempowers people and is part of the old age, not the new age.

Everything that has happened in your life is meaningful and meant to help you to transform and evolve, and to potentially assist others who have been suffering.

The more explosive world events that are coming are part of the process too, as Nature has earthquakes and tornadoes and tsunamis.

Life will go on, and an Age of Aquarius in dawning.  The transition will be better if each of us stays aligned and lives their life according to the nature of the Universe.

Love and Truth are the pillars that hold up the divine realms of the Universe.  Allowing them to be an integral part of our Earthly life paradigm and the Age of Aquarius is quite important now and going forward.

Each of us can make strong intention to let those values be the engine of our life, not materialism, greed, or power.

Till next week,

Leo

Combining the Dream with Reality and Astrology Forecast December 4-10

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are slowly leaving the year 2016 while we go through darker days leading to the Winter Solstice. People are now coming down from a very intense and tumultuous presidential election process.  And the Obama Presidency will soon be in our rear view mirrors.  That is very sad for many people.

So these events all tend to bring us to into deeper feeling states, a sense of endings, sadness, and grief.  The movement toward Winter Solstice can also bring feelings of being alone, even if people are around.

A good way to handle these deeper feelings is to find time to let them in without distraction or judgment, to meditate, to be in nature, to watch a sad movie or listen to music.

If fear wants to enter your consciousness too during these times, do your best to let it go as fear can turn naturally sad feelings into darker emotions like despair.

You do not want to wallow in painful feelings at this time, but instead to listen to your soul and its needs for nurturance and love.

To counter the endings and dark days leading to Winter Solstice, we just experienced the New Moon in Sagittarius, and we are hopefully feeling some joy getting ready for the Holidays.

New beginnings happen as we gradually turn to more light after the Winter Solstice, and we also bring in a new year 2017, and a new government administration with a new President.

Yes we will be entering a whole New Chapter of our lives, which would be happening no matter who became President.

The changes over the next several years will be dramatic, as we cannot have the transformation we need without such deep change.

How can we enter an Age of Aquarius with such distrust of one another, such control of our lives by the Military/Corporate/Governmental system?

As we have written before there is a groundswell of movement toward more nationalism, a tighter sense of national identity, a keeping out of immigrants and those who are different or alien.

Would it not be a perfect lesson for us all if extraterrestrial aliens made a showing on our planet for all to see?  This would likely join all those who are earthlings in family, no matter race, religion, nationality, or sexual orientation.

This could happen over the next several years and would be a great trigger of transformation into the Age of Aquarius, into a world of Diversity within Unity.

During the Obama years there was movement toward accepting greater unity between countries like with the Iran deal and the openings with Cuba.

There was the movement also toward more inclusion within the USA as marriage rights were legalized for gays and lesbians.

But our internal divisions were also highlighted as we saw African Americans still looked down upon by some in society in the form of some police brutality and murder.

The hatred and brutality toward the police and hence society was then seen in subsequent attacks and killings of them.

And then the Presidential Election process showed us how much more work needs to be done before we have a unified yet diverse nation.

This movement toward nationalism now seems to me a backlash against the perceived globalism and inclusiveness of the Obama years.

Were middle and lower income USA- mainly white citizens- left out of the inclusion? They seem to feel that way from evidence in the election process?

Has a unified world been happening too fast for some, as they fear “globalism” and a dissolution of some people’s and culture’s core identity?

Is nationalism a natural movement now to reclaim that core identity for Europeans and others?  Is that nationalsim, defined for some by keeping people from different cultures, like Muslim- out of countries?

Or is this nationalistic movement a dangerous backlash that will hold back the tide of an Age of Aquarius?

Perhaps the colonization of other countries and cultures by European countries and cultures has caused hatred and rage.  The domination of Native cultures and the slavery of Africans is part of this hatred and rage.  Standing Rock in the USA is a good example of the lingering effects of this domination.

Do you believe we can find a healing between the dominators and dominated? Have not all cultures and countries at one time or another been the conqueror or the victimized?

Is not the real issue – that all of us are living under a toxic paradigm that creates enemies and perpetrators and victims?  That promotes competition for resources and a world of haves and have nots?

That sees some as winners and privileged, and some as losers who are fated to accept much less?

Does this paradigm not also encourage humans to think of one country or religion or person as superior, while another is less or inferior?

To truly evolve into a world of Diversity within Unity there can be no such belief system, but instead one that values equality and honors the intrinsic value of one as worth as much as another.

We will need very big and important events on this Earth to shake up the old paradigm and open the portals into the New Age.

And the Trump administration and Brexit and the nationalistic movements now in places like France and Italy- will bring with it the conditions that will help with the breakdowns and breakthroughs that are necessary to transform into an Age of Aquarius.

No it will not be all be pretty and it will often look as if we are going backwards; but somehow we will learn we are all one family, diverse but unified.

And this week shows us the downs of the darker days and the ups of a Sagittarius lunar cycle, especially so now as we are in the waxing half of that cycle.

Also on Wednesday the 7th Venus leaves upright and accomplishment oriented Capricorn for unusual and  socially conscious Aquarius.  It is time to loosen up in your heart and in your relationship orientation.

On the 9th and 10th the Sun sextiles Jupiter, then conjuncts Saturn.

It is time to marry or integrate your positive outlook and your more realistic assessment of what is possible.

Till next week,

Leo

In the Middle of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 and Astrology Forecast October 12-18.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 11, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

I am leaving Italy today and feeling  very fulfilled from this 17 day trip to Europe.   As this voyage happened during Autumn Eclipse Season, with Mercury Retrograde,  there has been a significant shift in consciousness and a re-connection with my ancestral lineage in Italy.   Since the transformation of our global family will include big shifts in the power dynamics of the world, Western Civilization is feeling it’s effects.

Seeing the ancient buildings and long-time local traditions has brought a new awareness to my consciousness, as my American consciousness only knows 238 years of existence. Seeing alleys in Italy that have been used since before Christ helps me to know that people’s in the world value their heritage and take pride in their past and so love their land and culture.

The coming changes will not be  easy.  Many European countries are dealing with immigration from Africa and the Middle East, and trying to fit these very different cultures into their very ingrained traditional ways.   And China, Russia, India, Brazil and other countries are getting stronger and stronger.  And new global boundaries are being redrawn in the Middle East and elsewhere to shift our world into a New Age.

These lands I have been visiting are so beautiful and filled with such rich culture, and the future will have them learning to balance that rich culture with the tides of change into an Age of Aquarius.  And those tides are increasing their strength now during the Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.

This last week the markets have been showing weakness, and this is only the beginning of the transformation of our global economy.   Here in Europe, and I know elsewhere, many local economies are very dependent on tourism, as so much money is spent in stores and  restaurants by tourists.  It feels much like consumption by gluttony at times and shopping seems to be a very high priority  for travelers.

As the markets dim and travelers’fear of terrorism and Ebola rises, money will stop flowing from tourism and local life in many communities will change dramatically.

We must all prepare our selves for radical change that will reconnect us to soulful human values.

All the personal and world events that have been swirling through our lives since the Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year are setting the tables for more and greater transformation for our world and personal lives.

We have entered an important new chapter in our lives now, on the way to an Age of Aquarius.  This Autumn Eclipse Season will be followed by a Spring Eclipse Season 2015.

These two seasons will bring big shifts to our world, and most especially to the child of Europe, America.

That is because the USA natal chart from July 4 1776 is being powerfully affected by these recent Eclipse Season.

While many are complaining about the lack of power shown by the USA in world events now, in the bigger picture the USA is beginning to join the world community in a whole new way, as more of an equal in a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius.

We are now smack dab in the middle of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014, between two eclipses and moving into the second half of this current Mercury Retrograde cycle.

On Wednesday the 15th this coming week, there will be a 4th quarter moon phase beginning with the Moon in Cancer.

It is time that day to get into one’s inner cave and to process the last few weeks.   We are preparing for a strong Eclipse on October 23, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in passionate and intense Scorpio.

It will be time for new beginnings, and the inner depths of our collective beings will be ignited and brought more to the surface.  Secrets, previously restrained emotions and memories will seek to be expressed and seen.

It will be time to speak one’s truth and let the process play itself out after that.  Mercury will stay Retrograde till the 25th, so till then let your mind and soul process the recent shifts before coming to conclusions or making big decisions.

Next week when I am back we will look more deeply at Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 and it’s influence on our lives.

See you next week,
