Tides are shifting now as Venus has just gone Retrograde and Uranus has slowed down to go Retrograde while activated by its square to Mars.

We are being awakened and taken outside any closed boxes we find ourselves locked inside.   This will especially apply to heart and relationship issues.

The way you have been understanding certain relationships may tend to be challenged now.   You may have come to some fixed way of looking at a relationship, but over the next 6 weeks or so there will be pulls and pushes to see it differently.   Perhaps there will be new events that come into your life then that will shift your perception.

But even more likely, as Venus is now Retrograde, you will be reminded of past relationships that will give you a new perspective on this current relationship.

You might be reminded of an old relationship pattern that has come back into this new relationship.   You might be reminded of how bad or unloving or abusive a past relationship was.  Or you might on the contrary remember how much better some past relationship was.

Or even more likely still, you will be more aware of when your heart was truly into someone, or someone else’s heart was really into you.   Are you in love with your current partner?  When if ever were you in love in your life?

In late June/early July this year- Venus, while going direct, was making a most close conjunction with Jupiter, one that at times looked like one huge star or planet, not two. This is because those two shining planets “merged” with one another.  Love was in the air then, and as Venus was also making aspect to Uranus, that love may have awakened you like Sleeping Beauty, taken you by surprise, or merely took you outside your comfort zone.

Now that Venus has gone Retrograde it will have another meeting with Jupiter in Leo: on August 4. This will tend to reawaken your heart again.

Overall Venus Retrograde, which will last until September 6, will give you time to reflect on relationships.  Certainly this includes romantic and committed relationships, but also friendships, family relationships, business ones, etc.

You will likely receive deeper insights on those relationships, a better sense of the condition of the relationship, a stronger idea of what options you have and what patterns need to be healed.

And if necessary, you will understand better if you can save the relationship or if you need to let it go.

It would be quite important during this Retrograde period to feel your heart, to be in touch with what turns it on and makes it sing.  Turn back the clock on your life to remember what or whom your heart was attracted to, what it loved.

Do you feel love is good for you or do you feel it makes you too out of control of your life?  Some people actually will shut out love from their heart, as they have been too disappointed in the past or have developed a very regimented life that cannot allow love to messy it up.

That would be pretty sad, as an open heart is truly necessary for real happiness.

Much may change for you during Venus Retrograde, and whatever does will prepare you for a most important new chapter in your life that is wanting to develop.

When Saturn goes Direct overnight August 1st/2nd, there will be a Universal clock that will start ticking again, so to speak.  Saturn is the hand of time, and you will have a sense that “it is time”, that “time is marching on”, that you have chosen what road to take now.

That Saturn going direct will be accompanied by other planetary movements that same week that will tend to give you a sense of a big turning point in your life. In the Global world that will also be true, as signs will point to a likely fate for our world. Saturn Direct and Jupiter will be making exact aspect to Israel’s Mars.  That gives a strong indication that Israel will either initiate a military adventure or be attacked within weeks after Saturn goes Direct.  The USA chart is also facing most difficult aspects too, like Pluto very closely opposite its natal Sun.  The time surrounding the eclipses could be very challenging.

You will likely be moving in a set direction at that time, opening up doors that will take you to new events soon to manifest in your life.

And yet relationship issues may not be decided on yet at that time.  Venus will still be retrograde until September 6 and it will not be back to where it started going Retrograde until October 9, at which time more clarity and direction for heart issues will be formed.

And of course there will be two strong eclipses on September 13 and 27 that will tend to shake things up.  They will especially shake up your life if you are holding onto anything that is not truly aligned for you and your life. It could be a time of breakdown of what needs to pass, and breakthrough into new ventures and adventures.

The greater world will also be experiencing big breakdowns and breakthroughs then, as the streams of light for transformation and healing will be especially powerful then. It will be another important portal into the Aquarian Age opening, and light cannot shine through dense blocks in a system, blocks that represent a clinging to the past, and attachments to that which does not serve your Higher Self anymore.

And Higher Self connection is getting more and more important with every new day.  The ego self wants control, and does not truly care about connections, Love, and Truth.  It cares about putting its own needs above the cycles and rhythms of nature and the Universe, and above the heart of any matter.

With so much transformation moving in to rearrange our priorities and lives, we must now allow our soul and heart based Higher Selves to take over.   This is true even if our hearts are taking us to that which does not seem practical or conventionally apt.

The old normal is dying, which means that conventional wisdom is not wise anymore. Following empty rules will not better your life.

The “connections” will be taking over our new normal, so old “shoulds” will not serve you.

Just look at this last week to better understand where the conventional old world is headed. There were two more mass killings- one in a movie theater. There was an African-American woman who apparently committed suicide in jail after being pulled over by a policemen for not using her turn signal when changing lanes.  Donald Trump is polling in first place for the Republican nomination for President of the USA. And you think he cannot possibly become President? Think again. He is rich and famous and brash, the lower ego self that all too often runs America in the old world.

And also this past week, President Obama signed a bill from Congress that makes it almost impossible to legally challenge Monsanto and GMO products.

Your Higher Self is your only way out, and your heart and soul are the only way to get to your Higher Self.

So now as we experience Venus Retrograde, get your heart’s desires in order around relationship. Stay with who is in your heart, stay away from ego run people who will bring you down.

Transform, repair or heal toxic and/or dysfunctional relationships and their patterns during Venus Retrograde– or get out of them.

Also later this week on Friday the 31st, there is a Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius.   Choosing between what turns you on versus what is socially conscious can be an issue at such Full Moons. Leo is a sign wanting what opens its heart and what will be noticed or popular.  Aquarius cares more about group consciousness, social consciousness, and uniqueness.   The Full Moon on the 31st is at 6:43 AM EDT.  Venus, while still retrograde then, will slip back into heart centered Leo again also on the 31st.

Then on Saturday August 1, Saturn goes Direct and that gets the hand of time clicking as we start moving in a more certain direction. And then on August 14 there is a New Moon in Leo that will put more fuel in our hearts and life gas tanks as we rev up for the big events is September:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 13 and a Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries on September 27.

Evolutionary energies are growing stronger and your Higher Self intuitively knows the way forward.

till next week,

Leo

Breaking Open and Astrology Forecast July 12-18

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 11, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Late Wednesday July 15 there is a rather powerful New Moon in Cancer at 23+ degrees. It will be at 9:24 PM EDT.   Included in the signature of that New Moon is Uranus in Aries squaring that Full Moon.  More transformational energy is coming our way.

Additionally Mars in Cancer will be opposing “guardian of the underworld” Pluto.   So much emotionally transformational energy will be rising up to the surface surrounding that New Moon date.

For many that emotional energy will be expressed in ways one will intellectually not expect.  Pent up feelings will be difficult to hold back.  Also keep in mind that the Mars opposition to Pluto will be triggering the Uranus/Pluto square in a very powerful way.

Many people recently have had their primary relationships challenged in serious ways. That Jupiter/Venus conjunction in Leo in early July, along with all the other important recent planetary movements, opened our hearts to knowing who and what we love and are into.  That has stirred up many relationship pots, so to speak, and forced us all to get more real about heart issues.

That Jupiter/Venus conjunction was seen in the sky by many as two planets having merged into one planet, as the conjunction was so close.

Some have speculated that that merging of Jupiter and Venus last happened when the wise men saw a star in the sky that foretold the birth of Jesus.

So this aspect was especially important, and on August 4 Jupiter and Venus will be conjunct again, though not fully merged again. This is happening again because Venus is going Retrograde on July 25.

Right now there are many relationships that are ending or are being questioned. Others are being born in Love.

Venus Retrograde, which will last until September 6, will bring all of us into deeper places in understanding our relationships and our relationship patterns.  This is a most important Venus Retrograde time period as it will put our relationships in proper perspective based on who are hearts are truly “into” and who they are not “into”.

This clearing of the decks of our relationships will be preparing us for a most profound and important Eclipse Season in September:  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 13 and a Total Lunar Eclipse Blood Full Moon in Aries on September 27.

I expect that time period to be opening a major portal of new energies for a new age pouring in.

These new energies will meet up both collectively and individually with any blocks we have in our systems that will hold back the tide of these new energies.

And most importantly one’s heart will need to be open to receive these energies.  So you will be more and more assisted in knowing what and whom are truly in your heart.

But now this week there is a completion of what was started at the Gemini New Moon on June 16.

That is because there is a “dark Moon” until Thursday July 16, when a sliver of Moon will begin to show after the New Moon on the 15th.

Many issues will be wanting to be worked out before Thursday’s New Moon new beginnings, but those that are not yet worked out will tend to be emotionally opened up more around this New Moon in emotional Cancer.

In the greater world, there are two important issues that are scheduled to be resolved before the New Moon in Cancer: the Greek financial deal and the Iran nuclear deal.  As I am writing this, both deals have deadlines that are to be met before the New Moon in Cancer on the 15th.

Will European powers make a deal with Greece in order to keep it in the European Union and to keep the economy stable?

And will world powers make a deal with Iran that is meant to make the Middle East more peaceful?

But will a bailout deal of Greece’s debt really make all OK? Past bailouts have always ended up with Greece in default.  This new deal, if it happens, does not give much promise for Greece to pay its debt this time either.

Concerning the nuclear deal with Iran, getting a deal done will not be the end of the process.  USA Congress and its hardliners, and Iranian hardliners, and Israel will all react to the deal unfavorably. What then happens is unknown.

But in the bigger picture the Greece deal and the Iran deal or no deal will have a great effect on the Military/Economic structure that holds up the old paradigm.  That paradigm is ending and so our economic and military systems are being transformed.

Speaking of the military establishment, Jade Helm 15 is scheduled to begin on July 15 at the New Moon in Cancer. This vast military exercise will be held in the 4 corners desert states of the USA, so are likely connected to potential military involvement in the mainly desert area of the Middle East.

Their starting on this powerful New Moon is most certainly meaningful as the Mars opposite “guardian of the underworld” Pluto  aspect that day suggests potential explosive energies released and deep secrets being held.

In your personal life this Mars/Pluto aspect on the New Moon in Cancer is a most important day to express your truth in a powerful manner.  Open your heart to express what you truly feel down deep.  Though it could be difficult, it will result in your having made real what has been in your personal secret underworld up til then.

And you will experience a cathartic release that will bring you much relief and a feeling of renewal.

Leading up to that New Moon, during the dark Moon phase of the lunar cycle, there will be on Sunday July 12 another triggering of the Uranus/Pluto square. That triggering happens because the Sun will be squaring Uranus that day.

That will tend to take you “outside the box”, awaken you to the truth, and liberate your heart.

There will then be breakthroughs on issues that seemed so stuck before, and you will thus be more ready to move forward at the New Moon on July 15.

All in all this should be an emotionally volatile week, one that will help you clean out old stuck heart energies and make you more open to the new energies on their way soon.

Relationship issues will continue to be in the spotlight of our lives, as we all get ready for Venus going retrograde soon.

Till next week,

Leo
