Letting Go of the Baggage and Astrology Forecast June 12-18

Life is on hold until after Mars goes Direct on June 29. This does not mean you can do nothing in the interim;  it just means there is a feeling and reality that efforts to direct one’s attention to big steps forward are difficult if not impossible.

While we are waiting for the gate into a new phase of life to open, many of us are facing some real challenges. In fact for many their most sensitive and diffcults wounds or traumas have been triggered.

They are caught up in emotions that have been overwhelming their usual stable sanity.

Seems to me that we are cleaning up as much baggage as we can before we face new challenges and opportunities on the other side of the gate.

So go to your healers and counselors now to assist your journey or spend more time in meditation or spiritual practices now.

I know the world seems crazy now, but it is really a result of changing tides from one age to another.  We  are collectively and individually in transition and working to heal, release and let go of old tapes and conditioned programs in our heads and hearts.

On the contrary some of you are enjoying the ride into this new chapter of life.   Emotional baggage has not surfaced in any difficult way as of yet and the world’s troubles and confusions have not caught up to you yet.

But make no mistake, world craziness will accelerate soon, with important world events screaming for attention.

The Middle East will very soon erupt explosively, with emphasis on Israel, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, Iran, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia.

The political presidential landscape will get even crazier as scandals,  illegalities, corruptions, and secrets break out in the open.

Our global economy will face great challenges soon also.

At the same time protests and revolutionary energies and actions will increase exponentially.   Spritual enlightenment, synchronicites and awakenings will multiply.  People will have a much stronger sense of unity with their fellow human, as we all are motivated to change the world for the better.

The astrological reflection of this current change sits mainly with Saturn square Neptune which is good for this whole year but exact this week Friday the 17th of June.

As we have stated in previous forecasts,  Order and boundaries and status quo (Saturn) are challenged by disorder, open boundaries, confusion, chaos and change (Neptune).

We have mentioned immigration issues and redrawn state boundaries as part of this Saturn/Neptune process. And to add to this theme, later this month, Brits will be voting on staying or leaving the European Union.  That vote will greatly affect the economic stablity of Europe and beyond.

So much is changing, yet some like Donald Trump are wanting to turn back the clock  to the ’50s in America, before civil rights breakthroughs or globalism.

Do we need to stop to turn back the clock for awhile, or is it time to go further with revolutionary and evolutionary progress.

Voters in the United States will be letting us know their feelings on the matter come November.

In addition to Saturn/Neptune and Mars Retrograde, we are approaching Summer Solstice with a Full Moon joining it on June 20. We will talk more about that next week.

This week Neptune ( as it is squaring Saturn) changes directions to go retrograde on Monday the 13th.  This puts Neptune vibes in the psychic airwaves.  Neptunes is inner directed, aligned with the inner spiritual plane and rules psychic insights, insights in general,  fogginess and confusion, gentle poetic feelings, drugs, alcohol, chaos, and escapism.

If you are taking the Higher Self route of spiritual connection, it wil be best this week to let go and surrender to that which is greater, to trust the Universe, and to allow the process to play itself out without needs to control or dominate or think too much to figure it all out.

The Sun makes “minor” aspects to Uranus and Mars on Tuesday putting emphasis on independence, self expression, and empowerment.  It is time to stop being a doormat and to speak up.

Venus moves into Cancer on Friday the 17th.  It will stay in Cancer for about a month.  As it leaves Gemini, heart energies shift from light and lively to Cancerian softness and nurturance.

It is time to go deeper in your intimacies with loved ones, to open your heart and trust again.  This trust will allow you to be more vulnerable, which will open you up to greater nurturance from others.

It will also open your heart up to those who need care and concern from you, so you can give them the nurturance they need also.

Mars makes a quincunx (150 degree) angle to Uranus on Saturday the 18th. Time to break out of the box and let more assertive revolutionary energy into your consciousness and bones.  Life is changing and so are you.

Late June and July are lunching pads for new beginnings and startups.  Best now to heal your wounds and traumas as best you can, so you can have less baggage to haul around in this new Era of our lives.

And then in the 2020’s The Age of Aquarius comes into its own.

Till next week,

Leo

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday August 6 at 1 PM  EDT.  The series will continue Saturdays August 13 and 20th at 1 PM to finish up the series.   Each class will last approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.
I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world events  will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is to be paid prior to the classes.
 Recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.

Being Sane at Times of Change and Astrology Forecast March 20-26

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 19, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

There is a plethora of important planetary movements this week.

This week could bring a turning point in one’s life, or a crossroads for some issue.

Most importantly there is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra Wednesday the 23rd at 8:01 AM EDT. 

That same day Jupiter will square Saturn, as Saturn is slowing down as it changes directions to Retrogarde on March 25.  That makes Saturn especially strong.

As such there is a grounded pull downward, a focus toward “getting down to business”,  taking responsibility, organizing or disciplining oneself. The value of logic increases.

There could also be an important decision that needs to be made or a commitment to something important.

There may also be a feeling of fate, that something was meant to be.

The Lunar Eclipse will tend to shake things up out of same-old, same-old status quo, overly comfortable ways of living one’s life.   It is getting to be time to move on regardless if things have been figured out or not.

Since this is a Full Moon in Aries/Libra, there will be a focus on relationship.  That focus will include looking to find a balance between taking care of one’s own needs on the one hand; and taking care of the other person and the relationship on the other hand.

Have we previously focused too much on ourselves- or instead have we been overly accommmodating of the other person in relationship?

If you have been more caretaker than taking care of your own needs, then it is time to find a balance and take care of your self more.

If instead you have been overly focused on your self and not considering enough the other person, then it is time to listen to your friend or mate more.

Aries is about being true to oneself, which is a natural way to be.   Why would we not want to be true to our own authenticity and needs.

Libra is about listening and honoring someone else and the relationship.  It takes an attitude like that to keep a relationship healthy.

So where is the balance found?  Does one of you take care of themselves while the other person tends to the relationship?

It is time to work this out in different, more healthy ways

And Saturn helps to ground everything and to help you focus on committing to try hard to make it all work.

With Jupiter square a focal Saturn this week, it is no time to expand or fly high into anything.  Saturn is a sobering influence, so to speak, and it prevents one from being flighty or airy-fairy.

It is a good week to be real about whatever we think, say or do.

Relationships of all kinds are in the spotlight this week, so relationship between countries or world leaders could be strained and made to be quite real this week.

Saturn should stop anything from getting too out of control this week. Eclipses bring powerful and intense energies of change our way, energies that cause breakdowns of old ways and breakthroughs into new ways of thinking or being.

And that will be true with this week’s Eclipse too, but Saturn should keep you more  focused than at the last eclipse in Pisces.

In the greater world, issues that were previously unresolved or fuzzy or unknown will get clearer and known.

The presidential primaries should bring a more clear idea of who has won or lost.  Also fate may step in with serious repercussions, like if the email scandal for Clinton brings indictments; or if Trump or someone else has some scandal to deal with.

Communication will also be an important issue this week, as Mercury makes stromg aspects to the Sun and Mars on the 23rd and 24th.

Sun conjunct Mercury in Aries suggests we speak openly, with frankness, straight forward and direct.

But if too direct, without consideration for how a person will receive the information, there could be hurt feelings and defensiveness.

So say your piece but be sensitive to the people you are relating to.

This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse being in Aries/Libra also suggests a question of going to battle or making peace.  In Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Iran, Iraq, and North and South Korea this war or peace Eclipse could play out.

In your own life, is it right to be confrontative or better to keep quiet for the sake of having peace.

Or better yet is there a way to state your truth with a velvet glove of soft words?

This week could clear the way so you can soon find direction, clarity, and answers.  But most importantly, this week is a turning point.

It will tend to help us from going over the same mental tapes over and over again without resolution.

As I believe Einstein said- paraphrased,”If you do things the same way over and over again always looking but never finding better results, you are insane”.

It is time to stop the knee jerk habit of repeating the same words or phrases or questions over and over again. We are having the same conversations but nothing ever changes.

If we truly want different more healthy results we need to have the courage to think and act outside the old boxes.  Take chances and get out of old patterns that are ready to die at this Lunar Eclipse New Moon.

There is a feeling of security or stability that keeps us doing the old familiiar ways over and over again.

Now is the opportunity to change while good old Saturn keeps things grounded and sane.

The world is changing so fast now, and we cannot keep alive old rotted patterns except to our detriment.   As the old world keeps trying to keep the old ways, it decays and falls apart-  And so do we, if in our personal lives we try to keep the old and tired ways alive on “life support systems”.

Till next week,

Leo

Getting Ready to Leave the Cave and Astrology Forecast July 6-12

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 5, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Spring Eclipse Season is over.  The Cardinal Grand Cross is passing.  Mercury has now gone back direct.  Clarity and Direction are forming.

We have moved into a new chapter or season of both our individual and collective lives.  The Cancer lunar cycle we are moving through now suggests we gather with “family”, whatever that means for each of us; find ways to relax and nurture ourselves, as we take somewhat of a break from needing to push our selves or any agenda too much.

We are settling into our souls, reconnecting with our hearts, and finding our equilibrium.  We are integrating all the changes of the last few months into our consciousness and making whole our inner family of various facets of our soul.

This process will generally continue till mid to late July.  It is then we will begin to hear the clarion call to raise our flags of evolutionary progress and move forward.

On July 16 Jupiter leaves the womb of Cancer, where it has been contained for the last year, and begins to open up more to the creative heart light shining in Leo.

The message to get started again will get stronger after July 20, when Saturn the planetary hand of time goes back Direct again.   And then on July 22 we leave our inner caves even more as the Sun moves into Leo.

And then on July 25 Mars finally leaves peace and pleasant loving Libra, after being there since December 2013,  for the intensity and passion of Scorpio.

And on July 26 the Leo New Moon conjunct Jupiter will finish the job of launching us more fully forward into this new chapter of our soul’s journey.

This late July time period is a turning point forward after all the change and shakeup that began this last March 2014.

Many have had major breakdowns of their old lives since then. Others have had major breakthroughs and awakenings during that time. And some have had both breakdowns and breakthroughs.

Sometimes it seems everything will always stay the same, same-old forever.  Then those old lives are shaken up in one way or another as we are ready to go to another level or to enter a new season of our lives.

We each do have much creative input into our lives, especially if we want to take our authentic talents and fill a need in our world.  The Universe will support that intent.  And during times of great shakeup, walls break down and doors open to bring us closer to our soul’s intentions.

This may not always happen in the way we planned, but it will happen.

This is why meditation or other spiritual practices are so important, as they keep us connected to our soul intention.   When disconnected,  we make choices that are against our soul’s intentions.

Othertimes we try to hold on too long to something or someone we need to let go of, against our soul’s intentions to move forward.

Othertimes the programming we received from our society and family or the traumas we experienced earlier in our lives control our soul intentions and make us fearful of life and its changes.

And each time now that we enter an Eclipse Season or another important planetary time period, we are shaken out of our stuck places and helped to move into our soul’s path and our evolution into the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius,

The greater world now is on the verge of great shakeup, a shakeup that intends to eventually open more doors into the New World and Age.

You can see the borders and boundaries of that Old World coming down.  Keep in mind that the boundaries we have created for countries in our world have been contrived, and most have been set through wars and invasions, and through World Powers at the time setting the boundaries for their own interests.

This is especially true in the Middle East, where most of our religions and civilizations were started.  Modern  Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, etc. were created in the 20th century and manipulated by colonial powers. Invasions in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya were done to control those peoples’ fates in compliance with others’ needs.

And now as this group called ISIS is changing Middle East borders, as the USA borders are challenged by immigrants coming from Central America and Mexico; chaos is ensuing.

And borders will continue to be challenged, more and more so-called civil wars will break out, like in Ukraine.

At the same time forceful efforts to keep order will get more dominating.  Chaos versus Order will be a prevailing theme now.  Chaos seeks a break down of the old.  Order seeks a preservation of the old.

In your own life, when things break down, your old order is breaking down, and your efforts to keep order are your understandable desires for security and stability.

How much needs to change and how much you can keep things the same is determined in the process between chaos and order.

Chaos brings creative change; Order seeks to keep stability. Neither is the good one or bad one. They work together during changing times.

The Old Rules, the old school ways are also being challenged now as we move more fully into  our internet/computer age.  New Rules are born, new ways of thinking and being are created.

Some of the old ways you will be relieved are leaving, hopefully desires for power and greed and violent ways.  But some old ways you will not want to change, like human dignity, human caring and intimate contact between peoples.

Are we OK with new ways to have children, to clone or to use stem cells?  And if so, can we keep connected to our Earth and her needs, to nature, to our bodies and souls and their needs?

Can we work with Climate Change in a way that is healing for nature and our environment?  Can we learn to live in peace with one another, respecting the ways of those who are different from us.

How this Chaos versus Order transition time plays out is within our ability to vision and create. What are our priorities, and how much do we truly care about the future of the Earth, its creatures and our children and grandchildren?

Do we truly believe we can evolve in our consciousness and lives to meet the needs of the Age of Aquarius we are moving into?

The coming changes will be great.  See them either in your own life or in the greater world as opportunities to evolve and make changes that will serve the best potential of our selves and the world.

This coming week we are moving up to a Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn next Saturday July 13 at 7:25 AM EDT.  Keep to your intentions for nurturance, inner integration, and family connections.

But the Moon is in Capricorn for that Full Moon, so begin also to get prepared for more outer manifestation then.  But realize also that when you are ready to more fully leave your cave later this month, that you will want to keep intention for meditation, nurturing, and connection to “Feminine” values.  If you go back to just being concerned with obligations and accomplishments and “doing all the time” instead of “just being”, then you will not have the proper foundation for this new chapter of your life.

This week the Sun is triggering the now passing Grand Cross from April as it makes aspect to Pluto and Uranus. Events will continue to be heated in the Middle East.

If you are still “holding on”, you will get a nudge to let go this week.

See you next week,

Leo

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus and Astrology Forecast May 5-11

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 4, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Until Thursday May 9 this week , when the New Moon Solar Eclipse gets the ball rolling forward, we are moving down through a darkening moon time period.  Let your self come down into your body and soul now, nothing too elevated is recommended.

As you come down and have been coming down into your body and soul, you may experience discomfort, anxiety, difficult feelings.  The eclipses and other strong planetary aspects are shaking things up, urging us to transform and heal.   The discomfort is an urging to get out of comfort zones, as the old plateau you have been living your life on may not be quite right anymore.

Your body and soul feelings are wanting to be noticed and nurtured as things are shifting.  The body of your life, the material and physical parts of life are calling for attention.

This is because there are 4 planets in fixed earth Taurus now: the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars.  And at the New Moon Solar Eclipse this Thursday there will still be 4, as the Moon will join the Sun in Taurus, but Venus will leave Taurus to enter Gemini.

So your body, your home, your finances, your land may be issues to concentrate on now.  The practical grounded side of life is calling us more.  Yet, since there is so much shifting beneath the surface, such deep transformational change, being grounded may feel uncomfortable for some.

Extremely sensitive people may now be feeling shifts in the Earth if there are earthquakes coming soon, which may very well be the case.  They also may be feeling all the building turmoil, especially now in the Middle East and Korea.

There is a growing possibility now that the Middle East will have a huge breakdown of its current structure and power balance.    Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Iran, and other countries may soon be drawn into a big conflict.  The USA could then be motivated to engage its military strength there also.  This could all occur during Spring Eclipse Season or just after in the early summer.   It is truly a tinder box in the Middle East, and even a small match of conflict can ignite a huge fire of war. Korea is also a tinder box now.

If something does happen soon, remember that this is all part of a disintegration of the world’s paradigm and structure, as we move from an old Pisces Age to a new Age of Aquarius.

The western world and America especially are in the process of losing their dominance over world affairs.  The years of colonization have ended, and many of the countries who were controlled or dominated during those times are fighting for independence and freedom to find their own destiny without outside influence.

And each world citizen, including those of us in the western world and America, is wanting to break the chains of programming from the paradigm created by society.   We want to be free of corporate and government corruption, dominance, and dysfunction.

In an Aquarian Age we want to own and honor our true individuality, not to be what will fit into the needs of the state or corporate interests.  We want our purpose to come from the voice of our soul, the calling from the Universe, the needs of our Earth and human community.

The challenge is that we need to make a living, have a roof over our heads, and feed ourselves and our families.   That societal structure that needs to disintegrate and transform is, on a practical level, providing much of our semblance of security.  So it is easy to be tempted by fear, as the familiar world we have relied on for our stability, is in big trouble.

Our government is really dysfunctional. Our economy is presented to us through smoke and mirrors, as in reality it is being held together with scotch tapes of printed money.  We are trillions of dollars in debt, much of it owed to a thriving China.

Our military is spread thin over much of the world, getting out of two wars, but ready now to start new ones, as we continue to get involved in the business of other countries, cultures, and peoples.

In an Aquarian Age, as is aligned with the sign Aquarius, we will build a multi-polar world free of empires and superpowers.  We will build a world of equals born into a paradigm of Diversity in Unity.    As is written in the founding documents of the Moon in Aquarius United States, “all…are created equal, with certain inalienable rights, including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  And of course self determination is also a  value from those documents.  Those values come from the Universe, for all peoples, not just Americans.

Aquarius is also about power to the people, not kings and queens, or dictators, or governments, or corporations.  We are each free and responsible for our selves, our role in our human family, our Earth, and our connection and alignment with the Universe.

So as these Eclipses bring more and more disruptive energies, remember they are meant to help us to untie the knots that control our soul’s true path, not the path programmed into us.

When you begin to feel the anxiety from the shifting in our world and your personal life, remember that we live in a meaningful Universe.  As such the changes are meant to be, meant to help each of us to evolve, to move more fully into our authentic self and soul.

Each of us is safe in the arms of the Universe, and as we find alignment and centeredness, connection with source and soul, we will find our way, no matter what is changing around us.   Meditation, spiritual practices, spiritual guidance, therapy, healing, nature, inspirational people and readings are ways to keep you on your path.

Being with people or in situations that breed fear, lack of trust, cynicism, co-dependence, or attachment to rules and judgments that keep you controlled, are not good for you now.   Keep your self surrounded with people and situations that help you to stay on your path.

So this week Thursday May 9 brings in the second of three eclipses this spring, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus at 8:28 PM EDT.  What was begun or conceived last month, will want to be made real this lunar month.   It is time to manifest what you were motivated to do last month.  If something broke down recently in your life, this new lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse this Thursday will help you to move forward to new horizons.

It will help you to make real what you have been visualizing or intending.  Remember the winds of change are strong, so know the Universe is supporting your efforts, especially so if your heart is leading you and your mind has agreed too.    Let your heart lead, but make sure you are covering the practical concerns too.

One more eclipse will follow on May 25, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon again, as there was on April 25. This time the Lunar Eclipse will be in Gemini/Sagittarius.

See you next week,

Leo

Saturn not a Demon and Astrology Forecast for January 23-29.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on January 22, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have entered the last two weeks of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on January 4.   The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon was on the Winter Solstice on December 21 2010.   This current eclipse season, an especially powerful one, is slowly coming to an end.

People have been taken out of their “normal” rhythms and patterns and have been dealing with issues in a most intense manner, in many cases.    Now for many clarity, direction, and resolution are apparently beginning to form.   The week ahead may bring a challenge to that newfound definition for some. For others it may bring a feeling of finality or limitation that may be difficult to handle.

The last quarter Moon, in Scorpio, is on Wednesday January 26.  It intiates the last week of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon on January 4.   Saturn changes direction and goes retrograde on January 26 also. It is time to “get down”, and deal with issues that one cannot avoid anymore.

Whenever a planet changes directions, from Direct to Retrograde or from Retrograde to Direct, it slows down and its “energy” permeates the energy field.

Saturn is serious and prompts us to “get down to business”.    It alerts us to the fact that sometimes we have no choices.  Sometimes it feels like fate or merely that “it is time”.    Saturn was also called Kronos, which brought us the word chronological.  Saturn makes everything seem more real and sometimes heavy or grave, as it rules gravity.   We get more in touch with our duties and responsibilities.

At its best it helps us to feel grounded, to get more disciplined and ordered.  It helps us to take responsibility for our self and our life.  It helps us to create better boundaries and to limit our emotions if they are out of control.

So this week ahead is a turning point on these type of issues.  There will be more of a sense of definitiveness, of doing what needs to be done because it is time.

Saturn also rules Karma, which has a bad name for some.   Actually karma (and Saturn) is also about reward for a job well done.  It is about reaping what one has sown, whether good or bad. Many people have good experiences with Saturn for this reason.

Many “free spirits” tend to run away from Saturn because they cannot take its firm hand of limitation. Saturn is the rules and regulations of life that can feel like a limiting of heart and creativity.  It feels like death to them or imprisonment.    But Saturn is an important tool for all of us.   It helps us to build and accomplish and be successful.     If a free spirit learns to harness their wildness, they can meet their dreams.   Saturn tells us what the “real world” is like, whether we like it or not.  This knowing of the real world and its rules, fair or not, can help us to do what is needed to make those dreams come true.

Of course as we move now more fully into an Aquarian Age, the rules are changing and during the transition we have more ability to choose and create.   But Saturn will not die or be abolished. We will always need to work within certain parameters, always need to have certain boundaries and rules to live by.  Even as we merge more into Oneness, we need to develop an integrity and individual definition, and respect for others’ boundaries.

So use this coming week to make better friends with Saturn.   Saturn is not another way of saying Satan.  It is not our demon.  As you make friends with it, it will help you to build what you envision and give you the discipline and order to do so.

Expansive Jupiter is also important this week, as it leaves oceanic and soulful Pisces for straightforward and direct Aries. Jupiter in Aries suggests it is time to move forward, to assert your self, to empower your self, to ignite new fires inside your self, to get ready for new ventures and greater action in your life.

But with Saturn so strong this week, and while we are still in winter here in the northern hemisphere, for most it is time to merely rev up your engine with new ideas for the future, but to hold off on pushing them forward.   Saturn, however, can help you to make a plan, in some cases a long term plan and ways to organize and implement those plans.  After Uranus also goes into Aries in mid March, the energies of action and change will get even stronger.

In the greater world this week, as Jupiter goes into Aries and Saturn changes directions, while we are still in the last vestiges of our current “eclipse season”, watch the news closely.

In so doing you may get a better sense of what is collectively coming our way.    Watch especially the economic news as Saturn going retrograde may show us what is “fated”.

The Middle East is heating up to a boiling point now. Watch especially what happens in Lebanon, as it is in conflict now between having allegiance to Iran and Syria or having allegiance to the western world.   Events may be close to erupting there.

And talks between Iran and the world powers broke down this week, with no agreements. It is looking more and more like there is an inevitable clash ahead between Iran and its allies and the western world and Israel.  This conflict, when it breaks out, will start all the dominoes in the world to fall.  The transition between Ages will intensify.  Gates will open up and chaotic creativity will pour through.

Revolutionary energies gained more strength ths week as Tunisian people overthrew their oppressive goverment, and Algerian people are now protesting to gain more freedoms in their country.

Saturn’s turning and Jupiter moving into Aries this week will show more evidence of what is to come.

The winter has more suprises in store for us, as the Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice of 2010 gave us a signature of a most intense and changeable winter season.   Expect the unexpected and for more big world events on the way.

Breaking out of Stuck Boxes, and Astrology Forecast for December 5-11

We are about to enter a very active and transformational zone of planetary activity.    The New Moon tomorrow (Sunday December 5) at 12:36 PM EST intiates a double lunar cycle period that will shake up our reality.  This New Moon is in free spirited and fiery Sagittarius. Later that day Uranus will change from retrograde to direct movement, releasing liberating and revolutionary energies.  This combination breaks open stuck energies, breaks us out of old boxes, and stokes desires for greater freedoms in life.

This New Moon will lead into the Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini on December 21.  This is no ordinary full moon, however, as it is also a Lunar Eclipse. A Lunar Eclipse is exponentially stronger than a normal full moon.    It carries much more energy, and has much more ability to shake things up. It causes breakdowns of what is not working anymore and is ready to be released, and brings breakthroughs into new realms and possibliities.  

What makes this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse even more powerful is the fact that it falls on the same day as the Winter Solstice.  The winter solstice is an annual turning point into the winter season here in the northern hemisphere.   That day of the winter solstice brings us the darkest day of the year.  Overall with the Lunar Eclipse on the same day as the Winter Solstice, symbolically this is a very powerful day and gives us a signature for the winter season ahead.   

That eclipse/solstice day has influence before the event also.  Its influence is already here.   After this New Moon in Sagittarius Sunday, its influence will be stoked much more greatly.   Use this powerful time to energize your life, to bring positive meaning and inspiration to your life and psyche.  Embrace the changing times, and see them as opportunities to shift into a new passage or chapter in your life.  

The second lunar cycle will begin at the New Moon in Capricorn on January 4.  This is a very powerful new moon as it is a Solar Eclipse.  

In the greater world, many events have been boiling hotter in our world over the last couple of weeks.    Watch closely events surrounding Iran, Korea, Lebanon, and Israel. Keep a close eye on changes in the economic outlook.    There is a great chance there will be big events occurring during the next couple of months.   The events in North and South Korea and the Wikileaks information are only the beginning of these big events. Greater Earth shaking events are on the way.

Remember that our world is more rapidly transforming during these times of big astrological aspects.  The next couple of months are a spike time for more accelerated change.  The old structures and paradigm that we have been so encompassed by for so many years are breaking down.  It is held up by a world wide economy and military structure that effectively has been controlling many lives.  Here in America the media has become its pipeline for the programming that keep all minds and hearts captured.

And now with the Wikileaks information, the Powers that Be are being threatened with real and true information.  We have been told that security information is off limits to the populace. Of course this goes against everything this country has at its foundation.  We are supposed to be of the people, by the people and for the people.  And of course we are “guaranteed” freedom of speech. 

Because the established powers do not want us to have certain information, they want to kill the Wikileaks pipeline.  The Powers that be want Julian Assange stopped.    Since the last released revelations by Wikileaks,  their website has been shut down by Amazon, their web host; and Paypal has shut down their account there, which greatly inhibits Wilileaks ability to raise funds.   Beware of the internet being more regulated in the future, as freedom of information becomes more and more a threat to the old paradigm and the Powers that Be.  New Wikileaks information promises to be about UFOs.

So this battle shows you what we are moving through during this changing of ages and paradigms.    As the light of new consciousness moves into our lives, the old world guardians will get stronger in their efforts to stop the flow of the new paradigm.  

And this is true for personal lives also.  As you move into new inspirations and ways in your life, the old tries to pull you back.   What is familiar and feels safe has a strong pull to hold you back.  Doubts and fears creep into your mind and soul.   It is challenging to be able to trust these new ideas and ways of being.  They are so against what you have been taught by your family and culture.

But the world is changing so fast into new ways, and sometimes we seem to straddle between the worlds.  But it is getting more and more difficult to straddle these worlds.  

It is imperative that you move now to what feels healthy to you.   If you are with people or situations that bring you back to negative feelings about your self, that take away your power, that deny what you know, that try to control your life and sense of reality, you must make intention to leave.

Go to where truth resides. Go to where love resides. Even if you cannot leave all at once because it is not practical yet, it is important you make a strong commitment to find a way to do so.  You will be supported by the Universe, by the light of the New Aquarian Age we are all moving into.

There are NO Powers that Be that are stronger than the Universe and its cycles and seasons. They cannot stop autumn changing to winter and cannot stop the movement into a New Age.  If you follow the light of a new seasonal age on Earth, you will be supported. This does not mean you make foolish moves that do not make sense.

It means you wait for signs and symbols and doors opening, and then you move through with courage and faith.

So do not be afraid of the coming events that will be breaking down the old structures and institutions of an old world in its dying phase.  It is all part of the changing of ages on Earth.  Your life  is meant to change and align with these greater changes, as we are each a cell in the body of the greater Universe.

World Events and World Changes, Astrology Forecast November 14-20

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 13, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

The pace into an Aquarian Age accelerates and intensifies now.  That new Age is about equality, diversity in Unity, and liberation from governments, corporations, dictators, empires, or any authority that limits freedoms of peoples all over the world.   The gross inequities between rich and poor will be greatly narrowed in an Aquarian Age also.   

For all this to happen, the next 10 years will be quite eventful, and immensely transformational. The world as we know it now will look quite differently then.  The next few months of late 2010 and early 2011 will greatly open things up, and will be a doorway into this decade of great transformational change.

In the greater world, tight economic and military institutions all over the world have created an establishment and system that preclude true creative expression and freedom.  Hearts and minds all to often belong to the Corp/State, must answer to the Corp/State, to its rules and regulations, judgments and expectations.   These controls are ready to crack open in ways we have not seen before.  More chaos will be a result, and reactive state controls will follow.

Since we are moving more into Aquarian equality, all nations and peoples are becoming more and more equal.  This is easy to see as we witness the growing economies and power of China, India, Brazil, Turkey, Iran, and others.   The superpower of the United States is waning now, and we must all get used to this fact.  Our lives are changing as a result, and we Americans must learn how to simplify our lives more now.

We can expect to see big events coming now that will accelerate the process to greater equality and diversity in unity.   Our economy is about to face a great crisis, one that will shake up the world.  Through the ensuing chaos, the Powers that Be will try more and more controls to bring the world back to where it was before.  This will not work as the system is being deeply transformed.

Military challenges will follow and will also bring more chaos.  In the Middle East, soon there will be challenges in Lebanon and Israel, and Syria, and Iran.  The Middle East is close to exploding now.  The USA will get seriously involved to protect its perceived interests.  The sooner we leave the region, including Iraq and Afghanistan, the better it will be for us.  We will more rapidly develop alternative energy sources as a result. This conflict in the Middle East will shake up the whole world structure as more and more countries get involved and take sides.

President Obama will be challenged to find his true self, not this false self who has shown allegiance to the empire and old world.   He will rise to the occasion as Lincoln did when the USA was falling apart in Civil War.  His talents for bringing people together, for finding common ground, for intelligent problem solving will be greatly needed as the world falls apart around him. 

His own personal diversity in Unity, as a mixed race person, as someone who lived in Hawaii and Indonesia, as someone who has a name of Barack Hussein Obama, will be greatly needed to heal our country and be a midwife for our entry into an Aquarian Age.

The big events are likely to begin soon.  Could be as soon as this week.  Even more likely around the new moon of December 5.  The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on the Winter Solstice, on December 21, will be having an effect on our world and world events by then.

The intensity in the USA will increase at that Lunar Eclipse and continue to the Solar Eclipse on January 4. That one on January 4 is in Capricorn, closely in opposition to the USA natal Sun in Cancer.   Even now transiting Pluto is closely opposite the USA Venus; transiting Neptune conjuncts the USA Moon, and transiting Saturn is getting closer to squaring the USA Sun, which it will still be doing as the Solar Eclipse opposes the USA Sun on January 4. That is a lot of stess on the USA, and demands for change.

Additionally the aspects from this last summer, when there were all the cardinal sign interactions, are triggered by the coming Winter Solstice aspects.  And in late January and early February 2011 those points will be triggered again- by transiting Jupiter. Then in March 2011 Uranus begins a year long process of triggering those same early cardinal points. These triggers are flashpoints of change.

On a personal level we will all be challenged to move with the changes, to move our consciousness and our lives forward.  We will need to release old baggage, and old ways that do not fit into our personal evolution.   We are moving more and more into our authentic Self, out of ego control. We are moving more and more into Unity consciousness, diversity in Unity, and away from fears and judgments and hatreds that keep us chained to the old world dramas.  

Your life is a soul’s journey, a sacred voyage through life.  The Universe is always providings signs and messages, synchronicities to give light on your meaningful path.

Challenges and changes, even if they are painful at first, are opportunities to transform out of toxic situations and patterns that keep you distant from your heart and soul and free mind.  Truth and Love want to lead the way, but need to be uncovered from the wounds of our living in the world.

A new world beckons and is on the horizon.

AstrologyReport for November 14- November 20

This week Venus goes Direct after having been retrograde since October 8.  Venus goes direct on Thursday November 18.  Jupiter goes direct on the same day.   The relationship journey of the last 6 weeks is making a passage now. Jupiter on the same day as the direct Venus gives the potential of some kind of revelation or inspiration about relationship now.   You should begin to get more clear about the truth of the relationship, where it is headed in the future. The light should back on.  But the Venus cycle has not been complted yet.  Venus will return to where it started, when it first went retrograde, on December 20.

That will be full circle for relationship issues.   Loose ends should be tied by then, or even greater clarity will appear.  You may have more fully left a relationship by then, or perhaps you will have a rebirth on one.  Or a new relationship will be more fully manifested.   At the least you will have gained more wisdom and knowledge about realtionships, let go of old patterns and learned healthier ways.

Jupiter Direct brings a new round of expansion in your life.  It is time to follow your bliss or your inspiration about someone or something.   Your intution will lead the way more now.

See you next week,
