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

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

Deepening our Experience and Astrology Forecast October 25- 31

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week should bring a deepening into one’s body and soul.  Water and Earth signs are strongly represented this week.  Water and Earth together bring energies “down and in” instead of “up and out”. Together they represent Yin instead of Yang.

There is a Full Moon on Tuesday the 27th at 8:05 AM EDT.  That Full Moon has the Sun in Scorpio and the Moon in Taurus.   Scorpio is water and Taurus is Earth, both Yin signs.

Both are “fixed” signs as Scorpio is fixed water and Taurus is fixed Earth  Water is feelings, emotions, and soul.   Earth is nature, practicality, and the body.

Since Scorpio is fixed water there is a tendency to hold onto feelings and emotions.

Since Taurus is fixed earth, it tends to want to hold onto that which gives it a sense of physical security.

At a Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon, as this one is, there can be “tugs or war” between people who stubbornly hold onto their position or agenda.

Taurus does not like too much emotion or intensity, and Scorpio does not like anyone who lacks emotion or passion.

So there can be a conflict between people who represent each of those positions.

Be careful this week not to let your “buttons” get pushed or to push someone else’s buttons.   If it does happen, then it must be because emotions need to be expressed in order to clear the stale air of suppressed feelings.

All week there will be a pull downward into that which is real.  There is a strong emphasis on the signs Scorpio, Taurus, and Virgo.  That leaves little room this week for escapism or avoidance or over romantacizing.

There is a need to make real now, to go deeper to know the truth.

Finding the truth may take you down into the dark corners of your psyche.  In fact you may also be able to go even deeper than that.

Saturday the 31st brings us into Samhain, an annual energetic passage that our ancestors celebrated.

Modern pop culture calls it Halloween and in religion it is called All Saints Day.

Samhain is approximately half way between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.  It is a time when the veils between worlds are very thin.

As such one can, with meditative effort, get in touch with the spirit world and with those who have passed through death into other dimensions.

Try this through your meditation or through ceremony and ritual or even just staring into fire and making a soul intention to contact spirit.

It is easy to see why, as a result of this easier contact with the spirit world at Samhain,  tha tHalloween was created.   The more easy contact with spirits must have brought some fears of ghosts and monsters to people back in the day.

So use this time of year to let the spirit world into your consciousness. Allow the increasing darkness at this time of year to help you to go deeeper into the soul.

To foster this process we turn our clocks back overnight from October 31 to November 1.   It is time to be more inner directed, with less energy put into striving and set outer directed agendas.

Getting more in touch with mysteries, and with opening up previously closed secrets is in order now.  Also doing more introspection and delving more deeply into one’s unconscious is  in order now.

After the Full Moon on Tuesday the 27th we enter the last and waning half of the lunar cycle.  The light of the Moon will begin to dim, prompting us even more to go deeper.

It may be helpful at this time of year to be able to process your feelings with someone.  That will help you to gain objective perspective.  Do your best to not allow yourself to get into dark dramas inside your self or with others.

There is still alot to process, sort through and make sense of from all the storms of the eclipse season.

After the New Moon in Scorpio on November 11, it will be time to get more fully immersed in the new chapter of your life.

In the greater world, the eclipses took us into a faltering economy and stock market; major upheaval in Jerusalem and elsewhere in Palestine and Israel; Russia beginning to bomb in Syria; and China and the USA daring each other in waters near the South China Sea.

For now most of these issues have settled down in intensity. But the fact that they all erupted during the Eclipses in September strongly suggests that these matters are important ones that will come back to haunt us- excuse the pun.

The transformation of our old world and its institutions will continue.   There will be much more powerful changes on the way. The events during the recent Eclipse Season “set the table” for what is to come.

So it is likely that around and after the New Moon in Scorpio, world events will intensify again, especially those that are connected to the events that erupted in September.

In your own life, you continue to be ripe for awakenings, deeper realizations, and generally big breakthroughs into new lands of consciousness.  We are each evolving, through personal transformation, into more authentic soul beings.  As we transform we become more attuned to the energies and realities of the Age of Aquarius.

These breakthroughs also help us to shed the weight of EGO, the part of each of us that has allegiance to needs to dominate and control reality in service to the laws of separation and chance.   As we trust more, we let go to our soul self, our “higher self”, the part of us  that is connected to the Universe, nature, and that which connects everything and everyone together with meaning.

We give allegiance to the flags of Love and Truth and the birthing of a New World of stewardship of our Earth, its creatures, and our human family.   We can sense more and more the tone and frequency of a world of Diversity and distinct Individuality connected to the Unity of greater Community.

Till next week,

Leo

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving through the last days of Libra this week and getting ready for the Sun to move into Scorpio this coming Friday, October 23.

We are on a kind of plateau now, assessing and still processing from all the tumult from the recent Eclipse Season.

New and powerful energies stormed through an open Portal during Eclipse Season.

It may be difficult now to know where we stand.  The past has been uprooted, but its familiarity still holds our attention and may make us nostalgic for the good old days.  But maybe those days were not really so good.

And with the Portal’s streaming of new energies that have not been fully processed, we may not know exactly where we are going or maybe not even knowing who we are now.

But if you are not too anxious to push your self forward, you may gain some real benefits from the current time period.

This Libra time period brings us much beauty in nature now, with fall colors glowing in the Sun’s rays much of the time here in the Northern Hemisphere.

Libra also brings balance and some peace, much needed since the recent energetic storms in our lives.

But of course that balance and peace can feel boring to some who are ready to burst forward with more passion in their lives.

And for better and worse Scorpio energies will bring forth more passions soon.

Right now besides the Libra placements of the Sun and Mercury, we are also experiencing a lot of Virgo planetary movements.  Venus, Mars, and Jupiter are all in Virgo- putting much influence on physical details and desires to “get it just right”.

Making things more simple and being more humble are virtues of Virgo.  Being of service to others instead of one’s ego is another virue of Virgo.

There may also be much need to analyze things to death, and to get rather obsessed with certain thoughts and agendas.

Do your best to not worry too much now or get too anxious.   Meditation, music, and nature are great antidotes to anxiety and worry.

Yes it can be rather easy to get depressed now, especially as we see darker days and feel colder temperatures; but look at the bigger picture too.

You are truly now in a new chapter of your life. Perhaps it is not totally known what that chapter will be like or what it will bring, but you can know that whatever is on its way (both personally and globally) is what is needed to help us to evolve and adjust to the New World that is bursting at the seams of life to manifest itself.

In the political arena we can see the old ways fighting to hold on through certain candidates.  And we can see the New Age wanting to show itself through other candidates.

Bernie Sanders holds some of what the Age of Aquarius will demand of us. He speaks to greater equality for all, a transformed economic system that does not continue power and privilege to the few while so many others struggle to survive.

And his Sun in Virgo self was humble and without ego in defending Hillary Clinton from much scrutiny in her email controversy at the debate this last week.

The old economic system is not working anymore, as I see so many families where both parents need to work to make ends meet, and even then they still struggle to have satisfying lives that are meaningful to them.  Kids cannot afford college and medical costs are outrageous.

The children have largely inherited a society where materialism and mundane concerns are so highly valued, and where higher and deeper values are sometimes difficult to find in the mainstream.

Movies and TV shows are largely dark, or blatently sexual or violent.   Spiritual values, values of human decency, integrity, kindness, and genuine caring are not as easy to find in the mainstream of society.

Look at the political process.  Billions and Billions of dollars are spent to promote candidates, largely used to create an advertiser’s polished image of a candidate or to demonize an opponent.

Media is corporate owned and either is biased to certain candidates or promotes those who will bring in more viewers and advertising revenues to the station.

The news mainly is about the “horse race” of the elections, winning and losing and polls.  So little news now is about issues that we need to address in order to make our world better, or even news that makes us think, question, or challenge the current prevailing viewpoints or paradigm.

We are fortunate however, to have the internet and social media, as they give us alternative viewpoints and news that cannot be found on mainstream media.

The pleasant plateau of Libra will begin to crack as the Sun moves into Scorpio this Friday at 1:47 PM EDT.  Passions will begin to simmer, getting ready to explode after November 11 at the New Moon in Scorpio.

After that the conflicts in the Middle East and the global economy will be sparked into more intensity, change and transformation.

In our personal lives there will be more passion rising after the Sun goes into Scorpio this coming Friday.  And then after the New Moon in Scorpio on November 11, it will be time to speak your Truth, to go after that which gives you passion, to get in better touch with your primal self, the self that gives you the gut instinct on what is right and wrong for you, and what people feel right to you and what people feel wrong for you.

Scorpio is a “black or white” sign, not so connected to the nuances, subtleties and gray areas of issues.  It has “rulership” of our third eye’s ability to delve deeply into Truth, and to see the deeper motivations of others.

As the Sun moves into Scorpio this Friday the 23rd, allow yourself to deepen your experience, to sink into your deeper soul and your body.  

Pluto is the “ruler” of Scorpio and the Guardian of the Underworld.   It seeks to take us deeper than superficial outer appearances, and to bring us to what is “real”. It takes us into the Dark Mother, the part of the Mother that knows suffering and pain, and wants to hold us closely to her breast and to comfort us during our dark nights of the soul.

As is true for Scorpio and Pluto, often after the dark night there is a renewal and even a feeling of rebirth back into the light.

Transformation occurs as old patterns and energies are released and a new day dawns.

We await the world’s transformation.

Talk with you next week,

Seeing Clearly as Mercury goes Direct and Astrology Forecast October 26- November 1

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 25, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

Though we just passed through the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on Thursday, which is the last eclipse of this eclipse season, we will remain in the throes of the intensity for some time longer.

Since the next exact meeting of Uranus square Pluto is not until December 15, we can expect Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 to extend through to the Winter Solstice, a longer than usual Eclipse Season.

There is a turning point in the process now, however, as Mercury is going Direct pretty much as I write this forecast, on Saturday October 25 at 3:17 PM EDT.

So as the Scorpio Solar Eclipse has just passed, and Mercury goes Direct today, truth is an unavoidable reality.

Scorpio plows right down into the core of truth, the deeper truth that can free us from our chains of egoic control.

And Mercury now going Direct after 3+ weeks of being Retrograde, gives us the beginning of finding the light of clarity at the end of the dark tunnel of unknowing.

It may take a few more days to a week before we are totally confident we are seeing and thinking clearly, and before we can truly accept on a deeper level the truth that has revealed itself.

This year, since the Cardinal Grand Cross of spring, we have been thrust into an important new chapter or phase of our lives.  Events, awakenings, and realizations have shown us a dying past, closed doors of that which is not aligned with our authentic soul self, and open doors and windows bringing the fresh air of new ways forward.

And this current Autumn Eclipse Season, while Mercury has been retrograde, has forced us to look deeper for truth in order to find clear direction forward.

And what matters is what is on our true soul path, a path that is aligned with the connections showing Oneness, while at the same time the truth of who we each really are in essence, with no more lying and trying to be what we are not.

This turning point now to more clarity and truth is a difficult one for some, as there has been an avoidance of letting go of that which they have been holding onto so strongly.

Life support systems onto co-dependent relationships or empty security structures will no longer work in our hearts or lives anymore.

But this is no time to rush forward or be impulsive with our actions.  We can spend a bit more time processing before we know for sure, and when we do act and make decision, we can do that in a thoughtful and deliberative way now.

Mars moves out of fiery and expansive Sagittarius this Sunday October 26 and into grounded and real Capricorn, where it will stay until December 4.  This will help us to face and make real and to manifest that which was previously merely an idea or inspiration.  There is no more running away. It is time soon to do what needs to be done.

So this coming week may bring more clarity and direction, but for some also a more sobering look at one’s life issues.

And on Friday October 31 is Samhain, the ancient predecessor and inspiration for Halloween. It is a sacred turning point that is approximately half way between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.

And our more deeply “tuned in” ancestors experienced the fact that the veil between worlds is thinner around Samhain.   You may hear or “see” spirits.  You may catch glimpses of spirits out of the corner of your eye now.

And if you do ritual to honor ancestors, you may be able to contact those who have left their material bodies.

Then on November 1, also known as All Saints Day in Catholicism, we get ready to turn back our clocks.  We will then experience shorter days of being awake while it is light outside.  And temperatures are getting colder.

This prompts us to look within more, as the outside is not so appealing for many.  Christ said that “The Kingdom is Within” and so  now we can move more in that direction, the direction of the “unknown” and mysterious, but also the direction of soul unity and connectedness.

And as we recognize the inner kingdom and experience the love at the heart of that kingdom, we know that whatever events are erupting in the greater world can be seen and felt through the frequency of connectedness.

Yes this last week, as there was a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, brought us many very dark events:  A “terrorist” attack in the Canadian Parliament.  Another violent attack in a high school just outside Seattle, an ax attack on police in New York, serious riots in Jerusalem, and a killing of police in northern California.

Add these to the Ebola scare, Islamic State, a volatile stock market, etc. and it would be easy to get into fear zone.

Scorpio brings up the shadows in individuals and in society, so we can then deal with our demons, release toxic energies and patterns, and look for ways to transform our lives.

In the greater world, we are having lights shine on our shadow demons, on our mistakes, on our karma.

The Islamic State is not mainly about religion, but about power and about old grudges and injustices from the past.

The killing sprees in schools and other mainstream venues show us what needs to be addressed in our society.  Issues of guns, mental health, and of a general decay in society need to be addressed more seriously. These cannot be solved by people who are wanting to satisfy political agendas, but by people who want to end old patterns that destroy our human family and Earth and its creatures.

We are living out a paradigm of separateness and “every man for himself”, of his family or country or religion.  Evolution now is dependent on seeing me and mine more inclusively.  My family is all of humanity.  That consciousness of oneness is mandatory if we are to evolve our consciousness into an Age of Aquarius.

Though this movement into an Age of Aquarius is part of the natural cycles of Nature and the Universe; nevertheless we choose what that means for our human family here on Earth.   Do we as a collective transform our consciousness and lives into one of seeing all as equal and developing a Diversity in Unity world with Love and Truth as our foundation to build on? Or not?

We are at a crossroads now, over the next year or longer.  Events will take us more to “the edge” so we can know deep in our souls the reality we are facing, the consciousness we need to attain, the lives we need to live.

And our next spike of intensity will be early to mid November, as Mars in Capricorn triggers the Uranus/Pluto square. That square will be exact again on December 14/15, just days before Winter Solstice.

As you get more clarity now and over the next few days after Mercury Direct, commit your self more deeply to your spiritual path and your personal evolution.  We are All in this together, whether we acknowledge it or not.

See you next week,

Leo
