By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We pretty much leave Eclipse Season this coming week.  And Jupiter switches from Direct to Retrograde late Thursday March 8, putting an end to the rare event of All Planets being Direct, which has been happening since the first of this current year.

And later this week, on Friday March 9, we begin the last quarter of a lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15. A new lunar cycle begins at the Pisces New Moon on March 17.

Where are we both collectively and in our personal lives now?

We will now be able to process all the changes, events, emotions, thoughts, etc. that have been swirling in our lives this Eclipse Season.

Then after Mercury goes Retrograde on March 22, we will have even more time and inclination to reflect, ponder, analyze, and go deeper into our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls.

Then after April 15, the dogs are released through the Portal that will be opened then. There will be then a New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus, Mercury going Direct, and a Yod Finger of God encompassing the USA natal Mars.

This will be a time of important of new starts, and important world and personal events that will mostly be understood in the context of the events of the last two Eclipse Seasons.

Much has happened in our personal and collective lives since last July 2017.  Much has happened more specifically since this last January 2018, when Winter Eclipse Season 2018 began.

Remember also that on Winter Solstice 2017, Saturn went into its favorite sign Capricorn  on Winter Solstice day, making a strong conjunction with the Sun in Capricorn. This gave us a Winter ’17/’18 signature.

That signature told us how serious and down turning winter would be, and how gravity (ruled by Saturn and Capricorn) would bring a metaphorically quite strong down-pull or down-fall.

In large part because of that knowledge I predicted a severe downward turn of the then “flying high mania”  Stock Market.

And it was so.

And this is only the beginning of the downturn, which will become a crash, and then an important transformation of the USA and world economies.

The future holds a much more Bernie Sanders kind of economy, and a severely transformed world into Diversity within Unity for an Age of Aquarius.

In the meantime the process will not be pretty.  There is a USA downfall that we are experiencing led by the Trump administration, very likely coming major wars in the world, and a continued internal USA civil and culture war.

This chaos will bring many governments to try to overly control their citizens, while said chaos will also bring much creative energy to stand up to the controls and to what has been a largely corrupt and unfair old world structure. This “standing up” is already in gear.

Movement to overthrow this current USA administration through impeachment will continue to grow.

All this turmoil is a clearing for the Age of Aquarius,  coming on the heels of the chaos.

I promise videos and podcasts soon (before April 15), and some will be with David Sanipass as we did last year.

This week we experience Jupiter going Retrograde on Thursday and the 4th quarter of the current lunar cycle beginning on Friday.  And before all that both Mercury and Venus will enter Aries on Tuesday the 6th of March (my birthday).

Venus and Mercury leave flowing and sensitive Pisces to be in straight forward, direct, and assertive Aries for awhile.

Both Venus and Mercury are relational planets, so relationships can expect to be more sometimes brutally honest with one another.

If you have been walking on eggs with someone, not wanting to upset them or the status quo, you will start feeling more motivated to assert your truth with them.

In world affairs the same thing will be happening, as people will stop mincing words and instead be more open about what they want to assert.  Aries challenges and confronts, often with force.

On Thursday when up-lifting and expansive Jupiter is stationary waiting to change directions, there should be a spike in hopeful and joyful feelings.  But that will in many cases be temporary, as Jupiter will then go Retrograde for the next 4 months.

Also as Jupiter is changing directions, some people will be impulsive, saying what they would not normally say or jumping into something without caution.

The last quarter Moon is in Sagittarius on March 9. That means the Sun is in laid back Pisces, being countered by free spirited adventurous Sagittarius.  You could be conflicted between those two quite different ways of being.

We will be in the last quarter till March 17 at the New Moon in Pisces. As usual the last quarter opens us up to process and reflect on what has been and where we are at.

Sometimes energies or events are so accelerated or intense, that we lose ourselves or our perspective.

In this 4th quarter and beyond, through the soon approaching Mercury Retrograde, all the way to  April 15; we have the ability to gather ourselves, to shake off the dust of recent experiences, and to look our lives and selves right in the eye of truth.

If you judge yourself or others too harshly now, however, you will be unaligned and taken off track.   You are human and we make mistakes, and all we can do is apologize if need be, atone (at-one), learn form the mistakes, and promise our selves to do our best to never repeat the same mistakes.

Many of you who regularly read this blog, consider your self on a soul’s journey.  And right now, our souls are in the beginning stages of a world storm, a storm that seeks to shake up the status quo.  It is not an easy time for many now.

I know many of you are quite concerned and sometimes fearful of what is happening to our country and world..

If you look from a bigger picture at our human story over the past hundreds of years, you will see many challenges and forks in the road.  And though we sure messed up a lot, we also are quite resilient and resourceful and creative.  And we have been incredibly loving and caring so much of the time, even if history books do not tell us that.

We have created such works of beauty and artistry, built awesome civilizations, adventurously travelled so far, even to the Moon.  We are the only Earth creatures to do all this.

Yes we have also been so nasty, murderous, self serving, greedy, and hateful.

But we always do seem to somehow grow and evolve in so many ways.

And we are all now so close to one another through mass communication, social media,  mass transportation, world commerce, and all together under the Sun and Moon, and having the same basic human needs.

So now our growing edge is knowing and honoring our connections, not seeing ourselves as all separate and enemies with one another. It is no longer good enough to only know connections based on negotiations, trades, and contrived circumstances.

It is time to know and honor that we are all connected in our hearts and souls naturally, all parts of the same human family.  It is time to know that the Universe has all the dots connected, not random. It is time to know we live a meaningful existence, on a sacred home planet, in a beautiful diverse Universe, all together as One.

Dark and light, male and female, yin and yang- many differences but all connected as One.

Deeply knowing all this will help us to evolve to our next level, all in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Land of the Free and Astrology Forecast February 5-11.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on February 4, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week is a very meaningful week as we move through our first of two eclipses this month.

For those who have been sleep walking through life in their own little bubble, it will be time to wake up this week.

It is not difficult now-a-days to get into a bubble, as drug and technology addictions tend to create protective separations from life and people.

But during an Eclipse Season, as it is now, status quo stances are broken down and consciousness breakthroughs occur more frequently.

This week, to go along with the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on Friday, Jupiter changes direction and goes Retrograde; Mercury enters Aquarius; and the Sun sextiles Uranus.

That Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is in Aquarius/Leo on Friday February 10 at 7:33 PM EST.  The Sun is therefore in Aquarius, the Moon is in Leo, and both Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aquarius make aspect to that Full Moon.

The old chapter of life will already start to seem like a distant past.

We let you know that this Eclipse Season would bring the first true challenges to the Trump adminstration’s agendas.

And now a judge in Washington state has put a stop to the Trump executive order to put a hold on immigration from certain countries.

It should become more clear than ever this Eclipse Season that the Trump presidency is a big trigger for world change.   It is also a time when more and more people will wake up and be determined to make a difference in this world.

The Aquarius/Leo Lunar Eclipse shows big egos (Leo) facing challenges from the community (Aquarius).

Jupiter and Uranus making aspect to that Lunar Eclipse bring  expansive energy (Jupiter) and transformational breakthroughs (Uranus).

Aquarius also represents a world collective, which will greatly challenge executive control by the USA President (Leo).

Iran already is letting the USA president know it will not bow down to its demands.

President Trump has Leo rising in his natal chart, with Mars in Leo conjunct that rising sign.

Please don’t get me wrong however about the sign Leo.  All people with the sign Leo strongly placed in their natal chart do not develop narcissism.

But they do demand attention.  And they also shine a bright light of hope and positivity.

The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo, and of course quite arguably the Sun is the most important planet in our solar system.  It provides warmth and light and a strong center for all the other planets that revolve around it.

Now if that Sun  had an ego it might look at itself as a great entity more important than all others.  So you can see how big the ego can potentially grow into with the sign Leo.

But if those with strong Leo placements stay in their hearts (which is their natural place) they become creative light and love spread all around.

But if they take their accolades from others into their heads and not their hearts, they can then develop monstrous egos, both positive and negative ones.

Presidents Obama and Clinton are both Sun in Leo people.

So at this Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo, balance the needs of social consciousness (Aquarius) with needs for personal importance (Leo).

Keep in mind that Leo is not lesser in value than Aquarius.   Aquarius without Leo would be like a train without an engine, or a body without a heart, or a solar system without a Sun.

The needs of the many are so important, but individual energetic expression provides the fuel for all to be energized.

Jupiter changing directions on Monday this week provides us with expansive, upward moving energy.  It gives us a bigger and more meaningful perspective to life.

Mercury leaving linear logical Capricorn for inventive “outside the box” Aquarius for around a month, provides us the ability to free ourselves from stuck places in our minds.

Mercury moves into Aquarius on Tuesday February 7.

On February 9 the Sun sextiles Uranus.  The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo and Uranus is the ruling planet of Aquarius.  So the same themes from the Full Moon prevail.

In this case the Sun is the center and Uranus is what shakes up the center.   So expressing oneself as being different and countercultural may be a result of this aspect- as well as a result of the Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo.

The new administration is trying to firm up control by the executive branch of government (Leo).  The congress (Aquarius) is a constitutional counter to that executive power.    And of course  “the people” (Aquarius) of this country are supposed to be the real power of this country.

It is really interesting that the USA natal Moon is at 26 degrees of Aquarius in the 3rd house.  The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse this week is at 22 degrees of Aquarius/Leo, so it is making a strong aspect to the USA  natal Moon.

The Moon in a natal chart represents the inner values, and in the USA we have our constitutional Aquarian values: liberty, freedom of speech, diversity in unity, and the power of the people.

So now President Trump is trying to make himself, as the top executive, the greatest power of the country.  And now the power of the people will challenge that executive power and seek to bring us back to our deeper values.

Remember that America began with a revolution of democratic values(Aquarius) against the King of England (Leo).

President Trump, who has been a powerful business executive, will be continuing to challenge the inner values of the United States by attempting to be a kind of King of America.

This coming August will bring an even more powerful eclipse: A Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo that travels all across America for the first time since 1918.

That Eclipse will be opposite the USA natal moon in Aquarius, even closer than the one this week.  Trump’s natal Mars will be conjunct that very powerful Solar Eclipse.

We will analyze that more as we get closer to August.

For this week, stay poised to move with change and to let go of old patterns and habits.  Old programmed beliefs and attitudes can be let go now and more light from the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius can be let in.

This week those who have planets in Leo and Aquarius will be most affected, and those with planets in Taurus and Scorpio will be largely very affected also.

Till next week,

Leo

Back in the World Again, a look at 2016 and Astrology Forecast January 3-9

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 2, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It should be obvious to all who are tuned in, that our world is going through huge transformaional change.

This new chapter of life for humans on Planet Earth quite arguably began at the Cardinal Grand Cross in April 2014.   And all of 2014 and 2015 have expanded our collective experience of this new life season and world we find ourselves in.

This new chapter or season of our lives is similar to the ’60s and ’70s revolutionary period of time.  So much is shifting, and people are again having to adjust their consciousness and life to be in step with the changes.

There is a huge push toward big change, similar to the ’60s and ’70s,  but of course the quality and experiences of such change is different.

There has been a passionate revival of civil rights issues,  the last couple of years for African Americans and for LGBT peoples.

There is a stoking of primal conflictual tensions also, as the Islamic State was fully born at the Cardinal Grand Cross, and then perpetrated many vicious acts in 2014/15.

Many people have been holding on tightly to status quo life stability, while at the same time letting in the changes that cannot be stopped.

And all of this is happening as the Technological revolution has become more and more an important part of everyone’s life. It actually consumes the life and consciousness of more and more people.

And as we look at our political world, as can be in part seen through the approaching primary season for President of the USA, candidates and voter reaction show us a huge transformation going on in our worldviews.

Especially the candidates Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are revealing the deep dissatisfaction the citizens feel for the current condition of life in the USA.

And don’t be fooled by the statistics showing the economy on solid footing.

It is a mirage, as many people are generally having a rough time of it financially. Two people need to work in most families; college has outrageous costs for young people; and corporate controls of people’s souls and lives is quite apparent.

The world as we have known it has been changing rapidly these last couple of years, and sometimes people are overwhelmed trying to take it all in.

As in the ’60s and ’70s, the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius is awakening more in more in people’s hearts, consciousness and lives, whether they know it or not.

Our individual lives, our country, and our world are transforming at a rapid rate now, and even our sense of time seems to be accelerating.

And now in 2016 we will feel even more fully into this new chapter of our lives, as personal and global changes continue to intensify.

Uranus continues to square Pluto, though not exact anymore; and Saturn continues to square Neptune, with Jupiter in Virgo forming a mutable  T-square to Saturn and Neptune.

Uranus squares Pluto, similarly to the Uranus conjunct Pluto aspect that swept us into the ’60s revolution.

Powerful change continues as they continue their  transformational dance with one another.

And Saturn square Neptune continues our challenges with boundaries and limits, and continues our trying to balance security with sometimes big changes.

In the greater world that will often take the form of chaotic changes and uprisings being threatening to a sense of security. So then police, military and governmental controls will get stronger and stronger.

Anarchy versus fascism would be the most dramatic expression of this conflict.

The transformation of the global economy will likely require a worldwide crash of the stock market to clear the way this year.

And the rebalancing of power in the world to Diversity in Unity will likely require conflicts intensifying in the world. The Middle East will break apart much more.  Europe will face greater threats to its stability as will the USA.

Yet those who are being awakened and are transforming and evolving will also see an unveiling of hidden truths, a reconnection to more magic and synchronicity, and a greater sense of empathy for those who are supposed to be enemies.

A knowing that all is connected and that meaning is everywhere we look is another benefit of the transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

A healing of our human family and our Earth home is another important part of the great changes in our lives in this new season.

And each of us will be more motivated to lead more authentic lives through our jobs, relationships and personal worlds.

It will be another year of great change and a greater acceptance of this new season of our lives.

This coming week, the first full week of 2016,  shows three very important shifts: Mercury Retrograde, Jupiter Retrograde and a last quarter Moon leading to the Capricorn New Moon.

Tuesday January 5 Mercury goes Retrograde at 8:06 AM, breaking up the 11 day opening of all planets being Direct.  Mercury will stay retrograde until January 25.

As always our perception of reality shifts, as do our communication efforts.   There is a rewinding into our past and into past relationships, either in our dreams, our strong memories or in our actual lives.

Some will feel like they are slowly drifting into another reality, like being in a Twilight Zone.  And it should go without saying that with all this mental shifting, it would be wise if possible to puAt off any major decisions or important new ventures until Mercury goes back Direct again.

Jupiter goes Retrograde on Thursday January 7.  Combined with Sun square Uranus and Moon in Sagittarius , there could be a couple days of greater excitement surrounding that date.

The third shift this week is into the last Quarter phase of the Moon. This last quarter will bring to an end the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 11.

The last quarter phase of the Moon is always a time of tapering off activity and issues that began at the New Moon.

There is a feeling of “coming down”, and some people get more depressed at such times.  But most will just accept that they are on the down slope before the beginnings and renewed energies and actions at the next New Moon.

The New Moon will be on Saturday January 9 at 8:31 PM EST. in Capricorn.

Being in Capricorn it coincides with needs to get back into the world, to discipline oneself more, to meet one’s obligations, to do what one needs to do, to plan more, to accomplish, and to follow a set of rules that one believes in.  It is time to take more responsibility for one’s life, and not put the blame on others.

A New Moon in Capricorn shows us our need to set up more solid boundaries and to be able to say no when appropriate.

Capricorn is rules by the planet Saturn, and as such teaches us life lessons, gives karma, rules the hand of time, and brings us wisdom from our mistakes and life lessons and experiences.

So this week will certainly take you off vacation, and thrust you back into the world and reality.

Just please do not take it all too seriously, do not be too strict, and do not (with Mercury going Retrograde) believe everything you see and think, or make any big decisions or major life moves.

Till next week,

Leo

Waving Goodbye to 2015 and Astrology Forecast December 27-January 2

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 26, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Next week on January 2,  I will do a forecast for 2016,  including the Presidential primaries and election.

For this coming week, which includes the last week of 2015 and the first day of 2016, there is not much planetary action.

We will still feel the effects of the Cancer Full Moon the weekend of December 26/27.  Then we move through the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Sagittarius New Moon on December 11.

At the New Moon in Capricorn on January 9, that lunar cycle willl end as the new one begins.

But for this week the Moon’s light begins to slowly fade away as the year 2015 fades away too.

Interesingly, the rare occurence of all the planets being Direct is now in effect since Uranus went Direct on December 25.

We have a very short window of all Direct planets, as Mercury goes Retrograde on January 5 and Jupiter goes Retrograde on January 7.

We have a mere 11 days of all Direct planets.

So you can use this time to get really clear about your self and your life.  You can feel more confident in your ability to transform and change your self and your life in a positive manner.

This all bodes well for this transition time between years.

But we are also in the waning half of the lunar cycle, at the end of the year, and many taking time off from work.

So the slowdown precludes much action forward being taken, but with the Sun in Capricorn now, we can get really clear about what intentions and resolutions we want to make for the New Year 2016.

You can know more than usual for this time of year, as the planets are all direct,  what course is right for you and how you can get there.

Venus moves out of deeply instinctual Scorpio and into Sagittarius on Wednesday December 30. So your heart can help you to find more inspiration from others through conversation, books, movies, etc.

You can also begin (Venus stays in Sagittarius until January 23.) to expand your relationship efforts to repair and heal.

It should be somewhat easier, while Venus is in Sagittarius, to see the bigger picture of relationship, and to be motivated to make relationship improvements.

2014 and 2015 have been especially powerful transformational years.

Our world is going through great growing pains,  and most people find it difficult to see where we are all going.

It seems so apparent to me that the old conventional world is breaking apart, especially so as people seem tired of the old ways that are no longer working for them.

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders both represent a breaking down of old ways.  Trump has little respect for the American political system and little tolerance for, in his opinion, politically correct ways of being.  And Sanders wants to greatly transform the economic system into one more equitable for all peoples.

Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner is a potent symbol of old gender roles and identities being more blurred than ever. This phenomenon is happening all over America.  More and more people are questioning and experimenting with sexual orientations.

So called minorities in America will be the majority of peoples in 20-30 years, totally transforming our country.  Europe also is becoming more multicultural, and other countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia are beginning to open the doors for liberation for females.

Global Climate Change is being taken more seriously in our world which will change how we live our lives, build our homes and drive our vehicles.

The internet and computer revolution is putting out newer gadgets and electronic equipment that will further transform our lives.

The Middle East shows us great transformation of national, cultural, and religious paradigms- as Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, and Islamic State are shifting national identities and cultural realities.

China and Russia are flexing their national and cultural muscles greatly, and further threaten the old power structures and paradigm.

Though some of these changes may be extremely difficult to see in a positive light, they are all part of the deep and vast changes we are moving through as we transition between ages and paradigms.

Just as in personal transformation, sometimes one’s outlook during the transformational process is dark, foreboding, and painful.

As one wakes up to new ways of seeing and acting, and as one releases the old ways of being; one then moves toward more light at the end of the tunnel in the transformational process.

So do your best not to fret too much or to get too much into fear or cynicism.

Much of the ugly stuff we are seeing now is temporary, as we cleanse our human condition in preparation for greater healing and an Age of Aquarius.

I saw a documentary recently about Viking invasions of England 1300 years ago.  There were brutal and ruthless rapes, beheadings, stolen lands, and killings. There were no modern conveniences and little true freedom and individual choices.  The Christian Crusades were also quite filled with horror.

Civilization in many ways has improved greatly since then.  Actually, on the contrary, it is arguable that in many ways we have become too civilized, too emotionless, too immersed in personal mental and electronic bubbles.

We are now at a true turning point in human affairs.  And as such we are hopefully questioning most everything, so we keep that which is right for our new world, let go of that which is no longer aligned, and create our new world together.

Nothing can hold back the tides of change that have been moving through our world.  But we have choice as to the quality of that change as we re-imagine, re-think, and steer our hearts in new directions.

Till next week’s Forecast for 2016,

Leo

To Be or Not to Be and Astrology Forecast December 7-14.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 6, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Today Saturday December 6 brings us a Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini at 7:27 AM EST.    So leading up to this Full Moon energies have been rising.   Sagittarius is fire and Gemini is air, so both of these signs go “up and out”, not “down and in”.   It therefore is a yang-like Full Moon, extroverted by nature.

And of course Full Moons are energized not matter what the signs involved.  After Full Moons, however, we enter the waning Moon phase of the lunar cycle.  In other words energies slow down and are more tempered.

This Full Moon has brought some hope, new ideas, and animated conversations to many.  Some may also actually feel as if they have turned a corner and begun to shed some negative feelings and thoughts.

Perhaps there is even a sense of rebirth for some.  It is a rather complicated time, however, planetarily speaking.

That is because as energies have been rising with the approaching Full Moon, at the same time we are moving down into the Winter Solstice.  And in so doing, we are moving into darker days.

Winter Solstice is the turning point when dark minutes have reached their zenith and light minutes begin to increase.

So at this time of year, many are feeling a need to put the proverbial blanket over their heads and retreat to their inner domain. They need to feel their feelings, to be alone, to contemplate and reflect.

At the same time the Sun in Sagittarius brings fiery enthusiasm that connects well with holiday spirit.

Then comes the Sagittarius/Gemini Full Moon and energies are wanting to rise even more.  Jupiter changing directions and going retrograde on Monday December 8 brings even more enthusiasm.

But of course at the same time we are being pulled downward by Winter Solstice on the way, and days getting darker and colder.

And the mixed up energetics now can cause anxiety, especially so with the rush and push and materialism of the holiday season.

And this year, unlike other years when this same up and down dynamic plays out, making many to feel kind of “bi-polar”; we additionally have a most powerful Uranus square Pluto aspect coming on December 14/15. 

This highly transformational square has been especially strong this year as it formed with the Cardinal Grand Cross and the eclipses.

We have been motivated to leave behind old ways and chapters of our lives, old self defeating attitudes and beliefs.  At the same time we have been trying to acclimate to new experiences, new phases of our lives.

And now as we bring in this next exact square of Uranus and Pluto on December 14/15, we are facing another turning point.  This square is only a few days before the Winter Solstice on December 21, making the Uranus/Pluto square more meaningful.

And this Winter Solstice is more important than usual as it forms a New Moon in Capricorn that day, and contains the wake-up call of Uranus going direct that day also. More on this in a later week.

What does it all mean as we get closer to ending a most powerful year of change in 2014?

Well all transformational challenges bring us to choices. Outcomes are not necessarily preordained.  We humans make choices, choices that affect how are lives will then go.

And the most important choice at every big transformational turning point is the question of “To Be or Not to Be”?

Do I choose to live, to have life, to see my rough and challenging events as meaningful on my road of personal evolution- or not?

Was the breakup of my relationship, the loss of my job, the sickness I incurred, the loss of my pet, etc,  challenges to growth,  endings and beginnings of new seasons of life,  transformational turning points,  times to release that which was not right for me anymore, and times for rebirth into a more authentic and meaningful life?

Or do I decide I am a victim, life is hopeless, I am a failure, I have wasted my life, I will never break bad patterns, never have a good life, and feel stuck and defeated?

What the Universe brings to us may not be within our control, but what we do with it is.  By not falling into victimhood, we empower ourselves and change our lives.  We then set a foundation for having the Universe bring us better events in the future, as the law of attraction shifts for the better.

On a deeper level of our consciousness we can see the glass of life as half full instead of half empty. It is often a very subtle shift deep inside, but that shift is ultimately earth shaking and can move mountains.

Its roots are in love instead of fear, trust and faith instead of cynicism.

So this time period between now and winter solstice is important mentally and spiritually, as we decide on positive transformation or a sliding downward.

In the greater world there has been so much shaking up this year, and it is so easy to get discouraged and depressed about it.  It is so easy to be cynical about our world.

Our government is dysfunctional and our society often seems to be not connected to our better human values.

There are growing threats from Islamic State and Al Queda.   The Middle East seems more messed up than ever.  And lately the problems of race in America seem worse than ever.

All at once it has come to our mass attention how black men who are unarmed can be killed by police. It should make no difference whether they have previous felony convictions or not.  And the black men in New York and Ferguson committed mainly minor offenses like selling illegal cigarettes.

And even if they refused to listen to police commands, did they deserve to die as a result?  Does an unarmed man, like the one in Ferguson, need 12 bullets fired at him, six of which hit him?

Does not a man in New York, who is also unarmed, and pleading that he is choking and cannot breathe, deserve to be let go of the choke hold so he can breathe?

And why do so many black men fill our prisons, often for only drug offenses? How can we not see the prejudice that has tried to emasculate these men since slavery?  How can we not admit to ourselves that there is tendency to see black men as criminals, and to treat them as such?

How can we not see that when you treat people as if they are mean dogs, then they will show you just what you want to see?

Do you believe black men are bad by nature?  And that is why they fill up our prisons?  Or can we see a bigger picture of a society needing a big overhaul of consciousness and behavior around race relations?

And yes it is true that prejudice goes both ways and that so many blacks have hatred for whites too.  But who has been in power all these years?  Who has abused that power going all the way back to slavery?

In a new age of equality and Diversity in Unity, we will heal these wounds; and hopefully these current events will help us to do so.

There is a dialogue going on now that can be a motivation for healing and better equality.

The Universe is bringing us these issues, so we can decide what we will think and what we will feel and what we will do for change.  As has been previously stated, we are at an important turning point now.

And even if you agree that the police and society have been unfair to black men, it would not be aligned to hate the police and white authorities as a result.

In the Old Age there is a need to fight against enemies and to make some people superior and better than others.   And it is those old paradigm values that need to change.  The police are not bad in themselves, but instead are reflections of a societal attitude to make some people better than others and to create enemies of the system and state who must be crushed.

And yes if you are seeing more emphasis on police and military, you may be worried about a growing police state.  That police state represents our collective desire to keep the old paradigm alive, to feel secure, and to keep the supposed threats controlled.

But there is the light of the new world and new paradigm trying to penetrate the dark stuck blocks of the old world.  Let it in. Open to that which brings love and light. As you do, you will feel better and safer than you imagined.

As we shift our collective consciousness to equality and knowing we are all in the same family,  we can build a world aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

See you next week,

Leo

Deeper Reality and Astrology Forecast September 23-October 6

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have passed through a seasonal portal today, Saturday September 22 at 10:49 AM EDT.    The scales of Libra held a perfect balance at that moment between Yin and Yang energies.  The Autumn Equinox was that portal, and it signifies the equality between light and dark minutes of the day.  After today, the dark yin minutes of the day increase as the light yang minutes recede.

The Autumn Equinox is like a “sunset” time of year, as we watch the warmth of summer’s sun lowering itself toward the horizon.  Greater darkness and colder weather is felt coming as we pass through this Fall Portal.   We open our arms to more gentleness, we want comfort and company for the colder darker nights ahead.

It is Sun in Libra time of year, and Libra brings us a soft and graceful entry into the yin half of the year.    The air is more fresh and clean, the leaves will be so pretty as they begin to fall from the trees.  It is almost as if a beautiful and loving angel is holding our hand as we transition into the darker side of life’s year.

And this year the intensity valve will be turned up higher then usual in the second chapter of autumn 2012.  That second chapter of our usual three monthly  autumn chapters is Scorpio. Pluto, the guardian of the Underworld, governs Scorpio time of year every year.    The boundary between the underworld and the surface of reality are thinner then, especially at Samhain (Halloween), when deeper realities push their way up to the surface of our consciousness.

This year the intensity of the underworld’s dramas will be more intense then usual because there is Mercury Retrograde for much of November, starting on Election day November 6; then a most powerful Scorpio Solar Eclipse New Moon on November 13; and a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini on November 28.  Additionally the transformational Uranus/Pluto square will be triggered again in November.

The rage between different religions and different cultures has been revealed the last couple weeks, after a movie that severely insulted Mohammed and Islam was broadcast.  The lid on Pandora’s box has just barely been lifted, November promises to release much more.

The deeper truths of our world, our economy, our history, the ulterior motives of many, will erupt into our consciousness soon.    The flat Earth illusions of our dying paradigm will be shattered.

Uranus conjunct Pluto in 1965/66 shattered the “Ozzie and Harriet”, “Father Knows Best” cover pictures for a corrupt and repressive Military/Industrial Complex that shackled women, blacks and the hearts and souls of humankind.   The 60s revolution was begun.

Now as Uranus and Pluto return in square in 2012-2015, we prepare our consciousness for more shattering of illusion, more breaking down of walls of Big Brother repression, and a growing liberation of humanity.     They sang “The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius” back in the ’60s.   Now we get ready for the Blossoming into the Age of Aquarius.

As the walls of our Flat Earth consciousness come down, it is revealed to us the truth of who we really are, where we really came from, what we are doing on our sacred Earth.  Science’s Big Bang Theory, Darwin’s limited view of progressive evolution, and religion’s simple minded view of creationism will be soundly shattered by startling new revelations.

We live in a vast Universe, with living beings residing in many places and within many frequencies.   Perhaps a  “seen by many” Visitation, maybe the Disclosures movie in December, perhaps other sources, will reveal truths that awaken us out of our collective old paradigm slumber.   These new truths will set us free.

We don’t need another hero, we don’t need another savior, we don’t need gurus or royalty or Big Government or Big Corporation or celebrities or aristocracy.   We need ourselves.  We will lead this world back to health, back to our hearts and souls, and forward to a Diversity in Unity Aquarian Age.

Let’s look at the highlights of the next two weeks, as next Saturday September 29 I will be out of town.   The next forecast will be October 6.

On September 29 there will be a very meaningful Full Moon.  It will be a Libra/Aries Full Moon at 11:19 PM. It will be more powerful than the usual Libra/Aries Full Moon because Uranus and Pluto will make a close T-square pattern with the Full Moon. The Full Moon will have the Sun in Libra and the Moon in Aries at over 7 degrees of those signs.  Uranus will be between 6 and 7 degrees of Aries, conjunct the Moon, and Pluto will be between 6 and 7 degrees of Capricorn, squaring Sun, Moon, and Uranus.

Aries is force, action, self assertion. Libra is peace, civility, relationship assertion.  With Pluto and Uranus making powerful transformational impact to those energies, we can expect issues of peace versus conflict; my needs versus your needs or our needs; action versus social awareness, to take on major significance.   Your usual way of doing business between these extremes will be strongly challenged.  Finding a bridge between the differences, without sacrificing one side or the other will be the key to success for this lunation.

On October 4 Jupiter will be stationary, changing directions from Direct to Retrograde.  Its expansive energy will be felt and since it is in Gemini, it will expand in its reception and deliverance of details and information.   Communication and sorting through of information will be important. Some may be overwhelmed by rushes of details or information around this day.

On October 5, Saturn will enter Scorpio and stay there until 2014/15.    It may be quite helpful to track back from late 1982 to late 1985, the last time Saturn was in Scorpio.  Saturn in Scorpio puts the security anchor of our lives in deeper reality.  Issues you have pushed back below your conscious awareness may need more of your attention over the next few years.   That which is deeply real may be challenging at first, but will anchor you in reality and hence give you more of a sense of security.

If you were born during most of late ’82 through 1985 or from late 1953 to late 1956 you will be experiencing a Saturn Return  over the next few years.

The ’80s crowd will experience their first Saturn Return, a time of maturity into adulthood and more fully taking responsibility for your self and life. No matter so much haw you were conditioned by society and family, as you learn you must choose your life path now, in accordance with Universal destiny. If you have been living a lie, living your life for your parents or some artificial reality, your old life will break down around Saturn Return, to clear the path for your authentic soul’s path.

Those ’50s births will be at their second Saturn return, a time to let go of the years of making family and climbing the ladders of success. Kids are usually grown, success has been found or not, and attention turns to greater spirituality, more dedication to creative or service endeavors, grandchildren, etc.  It is a time to decide whether your last third of life will be going downhill till death, or staying motivated and positive.

See you in October,

Leo

Storms of Change and Asrology Forecast for August 28-September 3

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on August 27, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The intensity of change continues to increase.  Here on the east coast of the USA we experienced an earthquake a few days ago, which is very unusual here, and following close behind a huge hurricane is now coming up the coast.

Washington DC, the center of government in the USA was close to the epicenter of the earthquake.  Now New York, our biggest city and the home of Wall Street, the economic center, is about to get deluged by this storm.

The east coast of the USA is where the Sun rises and the day begins here in America.  This coast is where the new enters our shores, and where the pilgrims entered this land and began the European experience of the New Land and eventual country.  This coast is where the 9-11 attack was thrust upon us, in New York and Washington DC, great symbols of our country. This attack began a new era in America, a time of the War on Terror, and Homeland Security.   Many would argue this began a fear and security obsession time period in America.

These current weather events are symbols of new storms of great change that are ready to enter our home country USA.   Let us hope this time period will shift us more positively into progress into new and better ways to live and think.

The USA economy, which is the engine that ignites the world economy, has been getting shaky and more change is the way.  Our world wide economy is on the verge of great transformation. Disparity between rich and poor is ripe to transform into an eventually more equitable system.

Revolutionary energies, begun early this year 2011 in North African countries, will spread over more of the globe, including the USA.

The glue that has held the old paradigm for how we live and think and organize our lives is coming apart.    New energies, which bring new ideas and possibilities are waiting to flood our minds and hearts and lives, so we can create a new paradigm for living on the Earth.

In an Aquarian Age, we know more that we are all ONE, all is connected in our human family, all over the Earth and all over the Universe.   We get even more in touch with our individuality, our individual authenticity, but learn to connect in community, with tolerance and respect for other peoples and creatures.

This consciousness, of individual difference in connected Unity with everything, is the foundation for our new paradigm for living on Earth.

The old survival of the fittest mentality, which has turned us against one another, transforms into a knowing that survival now is dependent on cooperation and unity.

If you want to know how to be part of this New Aquarian Age, it is imperative to heal the old wounds and attitudes and beliefs that keep you in fear; and with lack of trust; and separate from others in your consciousness.

As you heal and transform, you open your mind and heart, and let in new light and energy that propels you forward in your evolution into Aquarian Age consciousness.

Challenging events will continue to flood into our world so we can humbled into knowing we are all ONE, not just unified here as Americans, but knowing we are all one family all over the world.

The Comet Elenin is a symbol of the speeding up of change this late summer and autumn.  As change speeds up you will be helped to release that which impedes your personal evolution.

Remember you are letting go of old programming by our old world that has taught you to fear and to dishonor your soul, free mind and heart.  It has taught you to not trust life and the Universe, to not trust your fellow human, to not trust the natural cycles and symbols and synchronicities shown all the time by the Universe and Nature.

We are ready to move with this new change.   Do not let the media bring you into too much fear mode.  Of course use caution and stay alert, but do not buy into the paradigm that does not recognize the sacred meaning of all events. Remember that all the dots in our world are connected and all happens meaningfully.

Mercury went direct Friday night August 26 and there is New Moon in Virgo this Sunday August 28.   The airwaves are clearing up and you can begin to contemplate more seriously where you are going and what you want to do.  Issues will get more clear over the next few days and decisions will seem easier to make.    Perhaps you will better understand now why it is good to wait before jumping to conclusions during Mercury Retrograde.

This New Moon in Virgo will add to the energies of moving forward, but with Virgo the forward movement is to better order your life. Your logical linear mind will begin to work better now, but be careful with Virgo energies. They can get you to being overly obsessive and perfectionistic.   It is best with a Virgo New Moon to fix what needs to be fixed or repaired this coming month ahead and to “get down to business”.  The New Moon in Virgo is at 11:04 pm Sunday night, so we are in dark moon mode until Monday night as the moon shows a crescent, signaling new beginnings.   During dark moon it is a good time to make intention and prayer for the month ahead.

On Tuesday August 30, Jupiter turns from Direct to Retrograde.   When a planet changes directions its energes permeate our life more intensely.  Jupiter is about expansion and upliftment.  So you may feel more inspiration to get moving. along with the New Moon.

There is much spirit and magic coming our way through all the storms and crises.  Keep your mind, body and spirit healthy now. That will help you stay centered and connected to your authentic self and the Universe.

See you next week,

Leo
