Optimism and Pessimism and Astrology Forecast September 1-7

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , on August 31, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

A Virgo New Moon this last Friday has pushed us forward with new start ups and beginnings.

The most likely kind of forward movement now is for fixing up, cleaning out, and creating a sense of order and grounded common sense in our lives.

This week there is a strong Virgo influence with the Sun, Mercury, Venus,  and Mars all hanging out together in orderly, “realistic”, perfectionistic,  humble and logical Virgo.

This week, however, there are energies emerging that often bring turmoil into the “close to the Earth”  expressions of Virgo.

That is because Jupiter in Sagittarius, where Jupiter has been all year, squares the Virgo planets, and brings with it uplifting, inspiration driven, expansive, adventurous energies.

You would think that any sign would love to experience such spirit rising.

But Virgo is quite arguably a “glass half empty” kind of sign, not trusting or finding it easy  to let in anything or anyone that is filled up with unbridled joy or “high flying” thoughts and emotions.

Sagittarius is very much a “glass half full” kind of sign.

When they are in conflicting relationship with each other, as they are now in square, each sign tends to go to extremes to get itself “heard”.

So in this state, Jupiter in Sagittarius tends to be overly excited, impulsive, jumping to conclusions, fantasy indulging, and high flying.

Virgo usually sees itself as realistic, when in actuality it can be very skeptical and pessimistic at times.

So a prevailing theme this week is an unpredictable roller coaster ride of positive and hopeful up-swing and negative and hopeless down-swing, up and down.

You can likely expect your aims to create calm simple order in your life to be confronted by excitable people or situations that bring “chaos”.

And conversely expect your aims to stay on the “high road” to be confronted by people or situations that throw a wet blanket on your soaring spirit.

This Virgo lunar cycle is meant to get us to work harder and to bring more simple order and practical sense into our lives.  Events that get us very excitable will challenge that agenda.

On Monday Labor Day in America, the Sun makes conjunction with Mars in Virgo.  Be careful of your own anger or the anger of others thrown at you.  And that anger might be accompanied by strict criticisms and judgmental opinions.

Do your best to not be defensive, but instead to take it in as constructive criticism that will help you to get better and better at what you do.

Watch the world out there to show us events, surrounding the Sun/Mars conjunction in Virgo, that tend to make us feel “half empty”.

So many have been feeling quite hopeless in recent times because of the state of our culture and world.

Yes our world is in bad shape right now in many ways, so we need to band together to help transform and heal it.

Our Earth and human family are coming up to a crossroads on the highway of transition between an Age of Pisces and a coming Age of Aquarius.

When we experience the old Paradigm with its fears and hatreds, we can feel so down and hopeless. And then we tune into the new Paradigm with its love, empathy, and magic, and we can then feel so filled with hope and joy.

That swing up and down is a natural rhythm for being in transition during Transformation and Healing cycles.

Expect that energetic to continue; yet we can learn to handle those swings better by finding an inner observer.

That observer knows the swings are natural and accepts this.  Yet is also knows that hanging onto the high or being crushed by the low does not serve us well.

The relationship between opposites can be intense now. Dark and Light both want attention. So do Yang and Yin. So do Male and Female.

All is being re-integrated and re-balanced.  We can trust the process and let go of trying so hard to keep control.

Here are some highlights for the month ahead:

There is a Full Moon in Pisces on Friday the 13th of September.  This is a time to connect with the Mysteries

On the 18th, Hand of Time Saturn goes Direct. This is a time to know- It is Time. Time marches on.

September 21, Jupiter squares Neptune to trigger the wand of magic coming alive

On September 23, there is the Autumn Equinox bringing equal balance between light and dark as the Sun moves into Libra.

On September 28 there is a New Moon in Libra, bringing more Beauty and Love into life.

The Trump world is not taking over our lives and souls. Why would we allow it?

The world he has brought with him is a world that has been leaving us for some time now.   It cannot come back for more than a “second” in the vast network of Time. That time is almost up.

Instead of complaining or letting fear take us over,  we can take more responsibility for the country and world we have all built together.

And we can take more responsibility for healing it and ourselves; and for transforming this world and ourselves with an abundance of Love and a dedication to Truth.

December 2019/January 2020 give us the next Eclipse Season. It will be especially powerful as Saturn conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn in connection with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer.

This promises a most powerful turning point in our collective human experience on Planet Earth.

Till next week

Winter Solstice 2018 and Full Moon in Cancer and Astrology Forecast December 16-22.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on December 15, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we experience one of the four annual turning points into a new season: Winter Solstice.

Winter Solstice 2018 is December 21 at 5:23 PM EST.

Dark minutes of the day are at their greatest on Winter Solstice; then right afterwards light minutes begin to gain in strength.  It is not mere coincidence that the Christian religion has put Christmas close to this annual turning point.

The chosen day for Christ’s birth, which can be seen as the light of hope being birthed for humanity, fits so well with Winter Solstice.

At Winter Solstice dark, yin, inward energies are at their greatest.   There is a pull to honor contemplation, inner reflection, sadness, darker feelings, and compassion for those who suffer.

But in this darkness a light is born, hope is seen at the end of the tunnel of our despair.  Spring, the next season, is of course nature’s breath of fresh air and renewed light and hope.

Every year as we get closer and closer to the depths of Winter Solstice, it may seem somewhat of a contradiction that the Sun has been in uplifted, inspirational Sagittarius.

Sagittarius is the fire that keeps burning with faith as the days get darker in the Northern Hemisphere.

And this year Jupiter is also in Sagittarius as we enter Winter Solstice. This adds a feeling of expanding joy and upliftment even as dark days get darker.

The holiday season is part of the Sagittarius joy and upliftment, and many use this holiday spirit to distract them from deeper feelings.

Holding both Sagittarius joy and Winter Solstice sadness will test us this week.

Some get very depressed at the holidays, and these darker days contribute to these feelings.

Some people get rather manic with holiday preparation and anticipation.

Both are extremes at this time of year. To hold the joy and happiness while also holding a feeling of sadness, nostalgia, or connection with the “down” feelings of life is the best one can do at this time.

Right on the Winter Solstice of December 21, the Sun every year moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn.

Capricorn is “ruled”  by the planet Saturn, and Saturn is gravity which obviously is a pull downward.

But it is basically not a pull down into feelings;  instead it is a pull down into facing what one needs to do, what obligations need to be met, what responsibilities need to be tended, what accomplishments need to be met, what goals need to be set.

Capricorn is about organizing, discipline, boundary setting, limits, time constraints, rules and regulations.

Its goals are building, especially building success, outer world recognition and respect, and career advancement.

Interestingly this year, the day after the Winter Solstice passage of Sun into Capricorn brings us into a Full Moon in Cancer.

Since Full Moons always have the Sun exactly opposite the Moon, this Full Moon has the Sun at one degree of Capricorn and the Moon at 1 degree of Cancer.

The Full Moon is on December 22 at 12:49 PM EST.

So the recently entered Sun in Capricorn meets the Moon in Cancer in opposition.

And the ruling “planet” of Cancer is the Moon. So the Moon swoons in Cancer, making it stronger than ever.

In many ways this Full Moon shows us a traditional Father archetype(Capricorn) versus a traditional Mother archetype (Cancer).

This Cancer Mother is more unconditional, without strict boundaries or rules. It is rather permissive, nurturing and emotionally safe. It also can hover over in its protectiveness, and resist boundaries between Mom and child, all blurring together.

The Capricorn Father is rather stern and a task master, expecting one to take responsibility for oneself, and to follow a strict regimen of discipline and accomplishment.

I am sure you can see how these archetypes can translate into politically conservative (Capricorn) and liberal (Cancer).

And we all know how polarized these parties are from one another now in America.

So watch this all play out in the world now between Democrats and Republicans, potentially stretching the budget or taking the government down.

And the stock market and economy are in trouble now too.

And since we are now in a new Eclipse Season, with the first actual eclipse on January 5, 2019; these government and economic issues will be intensified and likely in crisis mode.

But remember that the light of hope from the turning of the Winter Solstice will be shining, promising a new day, a new age coming.

Jupiter in Sagittarius, which will continue into December 2019, brings expansion into more progressive causes, more inspiration, broader perspectives and higher meaning.

As you watch the old world crumble in the hands of the Trump administration and Washington DC Corporate Establishment, keep your eye on what is being born at the same time.

Just as in the transformation of a personal life, old beliefs and old ways of living die.  And sometimes that happens with the breakup of a relationship, a death, the ending of a job or career, a deep realization of what no longer holds our heart, feelings of despair and even dark nights of the soul.

And through it all there are new beginnings, renewed inspiration, a new sense of purpose, better relationships, a sense of more love in one’s life, and a feeling of being more true to the true nature of who you are.

There is the feeling of being part of a global community of people who are creating a new and better world.

As we move deeper and more intensely into the challenging transition into an Age of Aquarius,  keep your focus on the bigger picture.

Know all is happening meaningfully, and that the death of an old era and age can be quite difficult at times.

Release the old ways and old beliefs inside your self, which makes space for new light and love to enter your heart, soul, body, and mind.

That light and love will help you create the life that is best for you, in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Communicating and Understanding and Astrology Forecast November 18-24

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

Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week showed us Venus passing the Retrograde baton to Mercury.  Mercury is now Retrograde until December 6, as Venus has gone back Direct.

What do Mercury and Venus have in common?  They are both about relating.

Mercury is communication, mostly mental and fast moving.  Venus is about relating, mostly from the heart.

Venus is also more indicative of the state of one’s relationships, romantic or otherwise.

Mercury is more indicative of thinking and analyzing, gaining information, and sharing the thoughts and information with others.

So with Venus going back Direct again now, we are beginning to move out of having our life spotlight on relationship issues, relationship patterns, relationship changes and healing.

Venus will not be back to where it started its Retrograde movement (10 degrees Scorpio) until mid December; so we still will need to repair, heal, find closure, or find some kind of resolution to relationships.

Last Friday Venus was going Direct on the same day as Mercury went Retrograde.  For many, the time surrounding those planetary movements were confusing,  disorienting, or difficult to understand.

Mercury will stay Retrograde until it goes back Direct on December 6, the same day as the New Moon in Sagittarius.

Remember that in the bigger picture we are moving out of an Old Chapter of our lives and into a New Chapter of our lives- on the way toward the Age of Aquarius.

With Mercury now Retrograde, we do not move forward right now. We ponder, reflect, and process.

We are best now if we do not try hard to find answers, do not jump to conclusions, do not hold onto or push rigid agendas.

With some people we are now in the process of saying goodbye, whether we consciously are aware of that or not.

With others we are in the process of seeing if it is possible to change old patterns and keep the relationship.

And in some cases we are wanting to know if a new relationship can be a part of our lives now.

As you look at the current state of relationships in the American political world,  the federal government is playing musical chairs with its employees. I have never before witnessed so much turnover in a president’s White House or Cabinet.

Mercury Retrograde promises more confusion and turnover in government, even while we still wait to see voting results from the recent Election Day.

So much is shifting and changing in our world, both collectively and personally.  It often seems like a replay of the revolutionary ’60s and ’70s, even including the comparisons between Presidents Nixon and Trump.

Nixon was the personification of what revolutionaries were fighting against.  To many, Trump now is the face of what is wrong in America.

One of the big differences between then and now is in how much more entrenched many are in the mud of our programmed world.

Yet the recent elections show a strong tide just beginning to form of people who believe we can change the world for the better.

Nixon was disgraced and left the presidency, the war in Viet Nam ended, rights for women and blacks had gotten so much stronger than before.  The world was truly beginning to transform.

Then there was a break in the revolution and evolution in the ’80s as Ronald Reagan’s administration sought to bring the country back to making “America Great again”.

And the revolution temporarily died as many people seemingly “sold out” and/or went to sleep. We were at that time likely meant to slow down and consolidate, before moving forward again.

Now over the last several years, the urge for change, transformation, revolution and evolution has picked up steam again.

And just like the ’60s and ’70s, there is a wall being built to stop the change.  Trump is the face on that wall for many.

And now as we move past 2018 soon, people are passionate about breaking down that wall.

And now there is much more likelihood  than in the ’60s, of everything crashing down in order to make space for this New Age to enter.

This wall coming down is like drawing the Tower Card of Tarot.  As it is coming down, some are feeling panic; others are feeling liberated from a confining world paradigm.

Many people will be “taking up arms” and picking sides for battle.  I suppose some are meant to do just that.

As the wall gets more cracks and holes in it from the Transformation getting more powerful, those in power will try to dominate and bully to “keep the order”.

And that could get ugly, just as it was when Jim Acosta, the newsman, was having his access to the White House taken away.

It has been subsequently given back to him by court order, but that kind of issue will get more and more difficult in coming months: to dominate those who disagree with you.

The old system will feel the need to dominate and control the citizens, forsaking the laws and principles of this country and its constitution.

Order will then be threatened by Chaos, and the wall will come down.

After Mercury goes Direct and there is a New Moon in Sagittarius on December 6, we will be in the early moments of the next Eclipse Season, which shows its first of two eclipses on January 5: a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn conjunct both Saturn and Pluto. 

And the walls came tumbling down.  Revolutionary Uranus will be changing from Retrograde to Direct on the same day.

But for now we are feeling our way through what needs to be let go and what stays. We are reflecting on our life priorities, on what gives our life meaning and where is our sense of direction and purpose now.

This week has the waxing Moon moving up toward a Full Moon in Gemini, as the Sun also moves into Sagittarius on Thursday/Friday November 22/23.

This Full Moon is exact on November 23 at 12:39 AM EST. Making this full moon more important and meaningful is the result of Jupiter being closely conjunct the Sun in Sagittarius and opposite that Moon in Gemini.

Making it even more meaningful is the fact that Mars in Pisces will be square to that Full Moon, creating a mutable T-Square.  This is a strongly influential Full Moon signature.

Complicating matters more is that Neptune’s fog will appear as Neptune moves from Retrograde to Direct on the 24th.

And of course Mercury is now and will be then Retrograde.

Sharing information and wanting to find answers are themes for this Full Moon. Communication through talking, texting, and email will be more important then usual.

There may be confusion in understanding what is being said or what is going on.  For some it will be a mental shit show, for others it may feel more mystical and otherworldly.

It has been getting more and more challenging to know what is fake news or fake information or fake pictures and stories.

As we come up on this complicated full moon with Mercury Retrograde, resist the temptation to figure it all out, or to fix it, or make it happen.

The more we push the river to flow faster, the more frustrated we will be. The more we jump to conclusions, the more we will get out of balance.

There is much emphasis on communication this week.  But it may be quite difficult to understand and make sense of everything. Too much expectation will bring too much disappointment now.

Trust and have faith in the Universe and yourself, that all is moving as it should, and that answers and meaning will appear at just the right time.

Till next week,

Leo

Breaking the Chains and Astrology Forecast November 11-17.

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This past week was really intense for many.  Wednesday and Thursday brought a New Moon in Scorpio followed by the passage of Jupiter from Scorpio (where it had been for the last year) into Sagittarius (where it will be for the next year).

“Out with the old and in with the new” was a common theme, a theme which continues as one’s New Chapter of life is becoming more clear.

As Election Day was just before these important planetary passages, that fact plays into the Old Chapter/New Chapter theme.

Democrats took over the House of Representatives while Republicans kept dominance of the Senate.  And so now Democrats will have more power and will use that power to seriously counter the Trump presidency.

That shift in power will help define the New Chapter politically and culturally, as the so-called USA culture war goes to a whole new level.

And each of us is being “persuaded” to know more surely where we stand and what we believe.  It is more challenging now to keep a middle ground observation view between these two opposing forces,

And in many ways these two opposing cultural viewpoints are about the past and future, though most involved would likely not see it that way.

Conservative by definition is about keeping things as they have been, and Progressive by definition is about progress.

Much of what Trump and his followers want is “make America great again” which infers going back to the past.

So much is changing now in such a big way. Look at gender roles and expressions, as can be seen through transgender people and their rights.  Look at the growing influence of AI.   Some are seeing that robots will replace humans sexually, as sex robot brothels are opening up in the country.  New kinds of relationship are being explored with more people attracted to open relationships and poly-amorous relationships.

And some people are concerned that current minorities like African-Americans and Hispanics will before too long become the majority in the country, hence the fear of some white people.

And women are becoming more empowered than ever, which scares some who see old traditions and old religious gender roles dying. An accepted Patriarchy is seen to be passing away.

And underneath all this is a shift of power, as those who have long held power and privilege are losing it and know it.

In a healthier world we bring along with us some old ways and traditions, but we do not bring it back.  We move forward into a NEW world.

And the old privilege is certainly leaving our world, which is headed to greater fairness and equality.

And minorities will be in the majority before too long also.

And LGBTQ peoples will more and more be accepted in our new world, this is certain.

But other changes are up for discussion. Do we truly want robot sex brothels?  How far do we want to go with AI and robots in general.

And do we want to let go of traditional relationships and monogamy?  Do we want there to be choice in these matters? And are open relationships right for our world and society?

In a healthy culture there are kind and respectful discussions about matters like these, and some conservative ideas are taken with us as we progress into the future.  We decide together- No culture war!

But we all know that is not happening right now.  There is culture war.

There would not be a war if everyone rode this wave we are all experiencing, which cannot deny a changing world into a New Chapter and even bigger a New Age.

And then together we sort through that which is inevitable in this New Age, that which can be preserved from the old world, and that which is open to discussion.

Overall we are progressing into a world of Diversity Within Unity, equality and fairness, Love and Truth.  And as long as we stay true to those principles, all else will naturally form as it needs to.

So now as we pass the New Moon in Scorpio and get used to a full year of Jupiter in Sagittarius, we have begun to liberate ourselves from the parts of our individual lives that feel trapped and chained.

In essence, we are each free spirits that are adjusting to a world of matter and form.  This is how I believe we need to know life now.

From that view, we hold our spirits and souls in the highest regard, but also realize we came to this world of form for a reason, to actualize and manifest purpose.

We develop a healthy relationship between spirit and matter, and then this is the foundation for our personal and global transition into an Age of Aquarius.

This week,  we begin to open the wings of our spirits as we get used to Jupiter in Sagittarius.

For some this last week has been painful as the baggage from our old conditioning has weighed us and our wings down.  We need more work in resolving our past and releasing our old patterns and ways.

And of course as Venus stays in Retrograde, relationships are an important part of our transition. Old relationship patterns that do not serve our souls and lives are being transformed.

In some cases these relationships need to be released and let go of, as difficult as that may be.  Chains need to be broken now, hopefully through discussions between people, but if not unilateral breaking is necessary.

And at the end of this week Venus leaves Retrograde and goes back Direct. That happens on Friday November 16.

We then begin to get more clarity and direction about relationship, and we begin the process of needed change. Remember however, that Venus does not get back to the position it started its Retrograde movement at until December 17.

So clarity, direction, and needed changes in relationship may take some time longer for many.

Interestingly, on the same day as Venus goes Direct (Friday November 16), Mercury goes Retrograde.

Yes Mercury goes Retrograde this Friday November 16.   So confusion may be strong around this time.

Both Mercury and Venus are about relating. Mercury through the mind and Venus through the heart.

So mind and heart are seeking a new balance between one another. With Venus going Direct, our heart matter begin to clear up. But Mercury going Retrograde suggests our thinking and mental communications are readjusting.

As usual, Mercury Retrograde shifts our mental outlook, prompting us to be more reflective and “right-brained”.  We may also question what we have previously decided.

Additionally, people from our past may come back to us in our dreams, thoughts and in reality.  And this is just after Venus Retrograde may have done that with us.

Remember to let the process unfold without jumping to any fast conclusions. Mercury stays Retrograde until  December 6, when it goes back Direct again.

Much is in flux still, yet all is moving toward greater freedom from old programming, toward healthier relationships, and bigger steps into the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Wings begin to spread open and Astrology Forecast for November 4-10

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on November 3, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Big Energy shifts this week can be seen through planetary movement.

It is certainly synchronistic that an important Election Day happens this week as the important planetary movements play out.

Early this week we continue inward and yin-ward movement as we are going through a last quarter darkening Moon in the sky.

Darkening fears have been trying to take over our consciousness.  Inner demons have been looking for more attention.

But this week we get strong triggering of our more active, vital impulses.

The darkening Moon shifts on Wednesday into a New Moon in Scorpio at 11:02 AM EST.  The day before, Retrograde Uranus shifts from fixed earth Taurus back into bold active Aries. 

Then the night of the New Moon in Scorpio, that same Uranus in Aries makes an inconjunct (150 degrees) connection with Jupiter as Jupiter has a last gasp of its year long placement in Scorpio.

On the day after the New Moon in Scorpio, Jupiter shifts from Scorpio into Sagittarius.  It will stay there for about a year.

Those planetary configurations will bring to us energies of passion, excitement, enthusiasm, awakenings, and new beginnings.

And these energy shifts happen surrounding Election Day in the USA. It will be a very intense day with a New Moon in Scorpio and the other planetary shifts surrounding that day. The uglier side of humanity will be stronger.  Yet “our better angels” will also be hanging out with us that day.

Before the election, Trump has the power, as president, to create events that tend to make him and the Republican Party look good.  Keep an eye out for that.

And both parties will be selling us on how life will bring tragic disasters if we vote for the other party.

Much will shift and open up after this election, as can be seen by the planetary movements this week.

Especially important to look at is the movement of Jupiter out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius.  The last time it was in Sagittarius was from November 2006- December 2007.

What was your life like during that time period? What similarities are there to now?

Moving from Scorpio to Sagittarius, Jupiter goes from being “down under” to “places in the sky”.

Pluto, guardian of the underworld, is the ruling planet of Scorpio.  Jupiter (Zeus) is the supreme god of the highest realms.  Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius and loves to be in that sign as it is this coming year.

Jupiter expands whatever it touches, so when in Scorpio it seeks to expand its influence in the lower realms, like our lower chakras or our more instinctual impulses. It also opens up our ability to see deeper within for deeper insights. And it seeks to bring us more fully into our passions and shows us more clearly what gives us that passion.  Sometimes, however, more “ugly” emotions are expressed with Jupiter in Scorpio.

While is Sagittarius, Jupiter expands our enthusiasm, our desires for inspiration, our search for higher meaning and solutions, for having a big picture look at issues.  Jupiter in Sagittarius will tend to expand the influence of our upper chakras, most often our crown chakra which wants to connect with the “sky gods” of meaning and inspiration.

And very importantly, Jupiter in Sagittarius motivates many to leap into things, to take new adventures. Of course that can be very good, but leaping before one looks closely at the potential consequences of such impulsiveness (called spontaneity by those taking the leap) can bring disastrous results.

This potential impulsiveness may show itself in our world, which is very vulnerable to dangerous triggers now.

Jupiter in Sagittarius does everything big, sometimes “bigger then life” so to speak.

Issues heat up while Jupiter is in Scorpio, bringing so much pressure to keep everything from blowing up.

Sagittarius is a fire sign, a free spirited fire sign. As such Jupiter in Sagittarius is often the match that lights the wild fire of our expressions and actions.

So that which was bottled up in Scorpio will open up in Sagittarius.

This next year will also tend to bring you to that which inspires you and lifts your spirits.

Jupiter in Sagittarius often heightens our connections to our intuition and motivates us to act on those intuitions.  It is best to check out the surrounding facts and to question what we are intuitively drawn to do before acting.

In the greater world, ill advised military adventures are more likely this coming year. There is also a better chance of manic over reactions when Jupiter is in Sagittarius.

Those who have been severely depressed this past year will have a better chance of breaking through their “down” feelings this year.

Many others will shift from “glass half empty” to “glass half full” this year.

So on election day expect your passion for what is important to you to be ignited with the New Moon being in passionate, primal Scorpio.

Then the next day with Jupiter going into Sagittarius, you will want to be more unbridled to express and do what you want to do. Your need for freedom will be much stronger this year.

In the greater world, powerful events are quite likely this week, events that will bring turmoil and out of control possibilities.

This election will tend to open up Pandora’s box of previously “kept in-tact” emotions and actions.

This recently opened New Chapter of our individual and collective lives will be in full throttle after this week’s shifts and changes.

There is definitely no turning back now.  It is soon time to let our spirits fly more, to open things up, to see thing from the big picture view.

You can more easily take the “high road” now.  Commit to doing that and not letting anyone or anything take you down from that place now.

Yes everything will be more out of control this coming year, but also there is an breaking out of stuck places that occurs also. Tightness will be difficult to maintain, locks will not keep your spirit locked up anymore. Open up your wings and fly this coming year. Jupiter in Sagittarius will facilitate that movement.

Also commit to finding the higher meaning to everything, including the most painful events that have happened in your life.

Everything does happen for a reason, and this coming year with Jupiter in Sagittarius lead your life with the faith and trust that accompany the knowing of “all happens for a reason”.

Likely there is shift to the left that will happen at this election, which will tend to further ignite the cultural war in the USA.

No matter how this election turns out, however, we are moving inexorably toward an Age of Aquarius.

And when you get clear about your Self and your mission,  you will have much fire inside you to inspire you to follow your heart, with your head as close adviser.

It is time to get off the fence of distractions, and to fire up your internal engines for the activation and manifestation of your purpose here on Earth.

Till next week,

Leo

This week is rather slow,  astrologically speaking.   There are no major planetary movements or motivators.   

Nevertheless, the pull downward and inward is powerful this week. The vast majority of planets are in yin signs: Water and Earth.

The 4th and last quarter of the current lunar cycle begins on Wednesday October 31st, adding to the downward theme.  Of course this means that the Moon is dimming in light more every day, until the turning point back to increasing light at the New Moon in Scorpio next week on November 7.

When the 4th quarter begins on October 31, we will be into Halloween that day.

More meaningfully October 31 is Samhain, a day honored as sacred by humans for many decades before our current time period.

Samhain is approximately half way between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice so is a yearly turning point to greater darkness and inward turning.

It is also recognized as a time when the veils between worlds is the thinnest.

To some that means that souls “on the other side” of the veil, are more easily contacted.  Spirits of the deceased are said to be more available to connect with then.

So Halloween’s ghosts and goblins and scary costumes are the modern answer to the sacred time of Samhain.

This is Sun in Scorpio time of year too, and Scorpio is ruled by the planet Pluto, known as the Guardian of the Underworld.

So the pull inward and yin-ward is strong this week, further enhanced by the Moon dimming its light as it passes through the last quarter of its cycle.

The Moon has a 28-29 day cycle, similar to a woman’s menstrual cycle, giving women an intimate connection with the Moon.

And Venus, another planetary representative of the Feminine, is still Retrograde in Scorpio, keeping it in the spotlight of our consciousness.

Overall this week, it is not a good time for goal orientation, or for focus on agenda or outer success.

It is much more a time for soul care, for deep feelings, inner healing, relationship care, inner insights, and nurturing for those in need.

Next week, after November 7, is the time for new beginnings at the New Moon in Scorpio. And on November 8 Jupiter leaves its year long journey in primal Scorpio.  It enters light inducing Sagittarius that day, where it will stay for a year

Interestingly, the day before the New Moon in Scorpio and two days before Jupiter enters Sagittarius, we have an important Election Day on November 6.

As we get closer to that Election Day, the current American civil war brought us mailings of pipe bombs this last week.

These mailings were sent to Democrats who have shown their opposition to President Trump.  As of this writing, a Trump supporting Florida man has been captured as a prime suspect in these crimes.

Election Day next week will bring a climax to recent confrontations between opposing political factions in the USA.

The New Moon in Scorpio the next day will show us whether Trump and the Republicans will keep the power structure as is, or whether Democrats can gain more power in the House and/or Senate.

The direction of the country will be more clear by the New Moon next week.

And of course the stock market and economy have been travelling downward lately.  We let you know in earlier writings that the Saturn transit to the USA natal Venus and Jupiter (which is happening now) would bring a downfall of stocks and the economy as a whole.

There is no escaping the dark part of the country’s transformation now.   Everything is being set up for America’s fall before its rise again as a more equal member of the world community.

We are moving toward an Age of Aquarius, which will open its portal in December 2020. Of course the world and country will not be all filled with love and light all of a sudden, but nevertheless the turning point will have been experienced.  Signs of the new world will be more evident.

And of course the next Presidential Election is a month before – in November 2020, so its results will show us some evidence that we are headed in the right direction forward.

So many people lately are showing signs of depression concerning Climate Change, feeling no hope of a good result.

No savior is coming to change direction for us.

We do have the ability I believe to come together as a human community to bring hope back into our minds, hearts, and souls.

And not just about Climate Change.    We also will bring back hope for our world in so many ways.

Love and Truth are waiting at the door for us as a collective to open to them.  That will bring us to where we need to be in our evolution as a species. That will also bring us to healing our Earth and its environment.

Spiritually speaking it is not as important to know how all will happen. It is of paramount importance to find the connections; to connect to Source; to connect to the knowing of how we are all one family, no matter what skin, nation, sexual agenda, religion, etc.

All the dots are connected in the Universe, not randomly placed.  Only our ignorance of that fact will separate us from the connections.

Allow yourself to surrender to the Oneness, including the Oneness inside of you.   That is what will bring us to where we belong, to what will heal us and help us to evolve.

Resist the temptation to complicate everything or make it all too difficult.  Love will bring us and All together. Truth will keep us sane and sound and real.  All needed will come from there.

This week we have the Yin-ward journey down into the Earth and Soul, into deeper connection with our lower chakras and middle eye.  That happens with the Scorpio influence; almost all planets in Earth and Water; and the light dimming from the last quarter Moon.

Some light of inspiration will emerge, however, as Mercury goes into Sagittarius on the 30th.

Then on the 31st with sacred soul insightful Samhain, we also experience Retrograde Venus opposing Uranus. 

That will bring some kind of shift or turning point in relationships mid week.  We are working on changing relationship patterns with Venus being Retrograde, and this week will bring some awakening on the matter.

Till next week,

Leo
