Chaos versus Order and Astrology Forecast May 29-June 4

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 28, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Mercury is now Direct but Mars is still Retrograde until June 29.

Thinking and perceiving should be getting clearer, decisions should be easier to make; but it is not time yet to fully move forward into this new phase of your life.

Nevertheless, by the end of this week there will be more spirited energy to woork with, increased mental activiity and a growing need to connect with others and to communicate.

But first we deal with the last quarter of the lunar cycle, starting Sunday the 29th of May.  With the Moon being in Pisces that day, the pull will be inward and yin-ward, processing all that has happened over the last weeks.

Last quarters of lunar cycles are for processing, going inward and preparing for new beginnings at the New Moon.

The next New Moon will be in Gemini on Saturday June 4.

Before that efforts to get moving faster forward could be thwarted or held back.

Also this week the Sun will be making aspect to Saturn and Neptune, This will touch off an important aspect this year:   Saturn square Neptune. The next exact aspect between them will be on June 17.

Saturn and Neptune have a cycle between them that lasts over 100 years. The most recent cycle began as they were conjunct each other (in the same place in the zodiac) in the late 1980s and early ’90s.

Saturn is law and order, rules and regulations, boundaries and limits. Neptune is surrender and allowing, openness and trust, no boundaries or limits. At its zenith Saturn is right wing fascism. At its zenith Neptune is anarchy.

While Saturn says no under all circumstances, Neptune is open to everyone and everything.

In our country this Saturn square Neptune aspect has been manifesting as thougts of building a wall to keep out immigrants versus letting everyone in.

In Europe it translates into open borders for immigrants from the Middle East versus strict nationalism keeping all but natives out..

In the late ’80s and early ’90s, at the last conjunction between Saturn and Neptune, the Soviet Union was breaking down and South Africa was breaking down apartheid’s oppression over black people.

So though they fought for old rules and ways, eventually the boundaries were broken down in each instance.

It happened relatively gracefully in each instance. Sometimes, however, Neptune can be quite chaotic and even anarchic if it does not see “progressive”results. Saturn can be quite oppressive and fascistic if rules and boundaries are being broken.

The Neptune/Saturn square is triggered this week, as the Sun makes aspect to both Neptune and Saturn.

Watch for the above themes to be playing out.

Saturn is also structure, laws and institutions. Neptune circumvents structures as water moves around, through and under rocks and solid structures. Neptune is mythologically “god of the ocean” and signifies water.

As Neptune and Saturn do their “square” dance with one another, there may be large protests or even riots. This aspect is intensely in effect all this year.

At its worst there can be martial law (Saturn) or complete anarchy (Neptune).

What Russia is doing in many of its old Baltic states- like Ukraine- may be in part to bring back the remnants of the old Soviet Union.

Some countries now are symbolic of Saturn/Neptune as their boundaries are more unclear: Iraq, Syria, and LIbya.

As we change ages old borders and rules and paradigms are meant to transform.  Our world is already looking and feeling differently and will continue ot do so.  By the 2020’s we will not recognize our world now in the same way.  Personal lives are changing radically also.

In your own life what structures are coming undone in your life? What old rules you used to live by don’t feel right anymore? Are you too permisive or too strict with your children, mate, family, or friends?  Do you have “open borders” ot yoru heart or is your heart closed?

On June 4 at 11 PM there is a New Moon in Gemini. This should give some much needed energy to those who have felt shut down or depressed lately. The mind especially will be energized and teaching and learning are encouraged over the next month. Gemini also is more social than its predecessor Taurus. It is quite the communicator and talker and can deliver information like a pure journalist (which is hard to find nowadays).

This New Moon in Gemini means it is time to move forward, but watch your step on anything important as Mars (planet of action and forward movement) is still Retrograde. Your big steps forward into new and important places waits till July and beyond. The New Era is held in abeyance.

This New Era is leading to the Age of Aquarius.  There is nothing to stop this wave of change.

Nevertheless, we humans do have input on how this will all turn out.  Do we fight to the death (literally) to keep the old ways or do we open ourselves up to deep healing and transformation.

President Obama was the first American president to ever visit Hiroshima Japan where we dropped an atomic bomb, killing almost 100,000 people the vast majority innocent civilians.  A few days later we dropped another atomic bomb on Nagasaki, killing another 100,000 people.

To his credit President Obama went there to pay respects ot those who suffered and died as a result of our tragic bombing.  An apology would have been better.

But these weapons of mass destruction represent our collective human hatreds and unconscious desires to destroy our selves and our world.

We can hope and pray that our collective consciousness evolves enough to let in the light and love of the Age Of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

 I am officially changing the webinar dates from beginning June 4 to beginning August 6 then continuing on August 13, and 20.  Here is what the webinar will continue to be:

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 evetns 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 $120 to be paid prior to the classes.  Fee will transacted through PayPal or check to my address. Please write me at soulus@aol.com for more information and ot sign up.
Audio recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.

Clearing the Way and Astrology Forecast February 28-March 5

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 27, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This is the last full week before the first of two strong eclipses in March.

That will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on March 8.  The waters of soul will be triggered to the max at this eclipse, and many are already feeling the deep emotions associated with it already.

The spilling out of feelings and emotions may be quite powerful for some of you.  On a deeper level this is about releasing the past and for some the “ghosts” and “demons” from their past.

There is such a new world that has been opening for all of us collectively and for each of us individually.  We cannot truly embrace this new phase of life if we are holding on too tightly to personal baggage from the past.

And some of that baggage is tied into personal traumas or emotional wounds that are may not be easy to access, let alone release.

Some of us are in need of some deep soul work so our traumas will not be triggered in such a debilitating manner.

As we enter new relationships, old wounds and traumas may limit our ability to trust and be vulnerable.

As we enter new jobs or careers our past hurts can have us feeling a lack of true confidence that we will do a good job or be truly appreciated by others.

Our moving to a new home or community can bring back traumas from our childhood that have us feeling we will not fit in or be accepted for who we are.

And make no mistake about it, this is huge portal that is opening now, a new portal filled with new experiences, new energies, more magic, a new paradigm for living, etc.

And this portal brings us a big step forward toward the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius, which by my calculation will be sometime in the early ’20s.

Look at the state of the American world now, as can be seen in the political fighting between presidential candidates.  If you watched the Republican debate last week, you know how ugly and childish it was.

On the surface it makes one doubt we are entering any better world.

But on looking beneath the surface you can see that the old status quo is breaking down, and that is a prerequisite for a new paradigm and age to be built.

The old two party system is corrupt, run by billionaires and mega-corporations and other special interests. We the people have lost our voice.

Yet now with a few of the new candidates, people are coming out in droves because they see the opportunity for “we the people” to take back our power.

Perhaps people are not seeing clearly the character of the candidates who give them hope, but nevertheless people are awakening and it will not be easy to put that genie back in bottle again, so to speak.

Be prepared as other huge events will come our way soon, events that may be quite ugly on the surface, but will help break down the stuck structures and habits from the old world.

And in your personal life it is the same way.  Sometimes we can stay in old ways, and even want to stay in stable situations that have lost their spirit and soul.  It gets so “comfortable” we do not want to disrupt our lives.

But on a deeper level our spirits and souls are dying and require change and transformation.  We would not leave familiar habits without “kicking and screaming” to stay put.

But the waves from this portal will shake us up out of complacency.  March will bring emotional shakeups and force the need for deeper processing. April will bring more action, more manifestation, more motivation to move forward in your life.

This week, on Tuesday we enter the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began on February 8 at the New Moon in Aquarius.   

This last quarter brings us to greater completion, resolution and closure of some issues. There will be some cleaning up to do, some sweeping away of the past, getting prepared for new beginnings at the New Moon Solar Eclipse on March 8.

In the middle of this week, there may be some relationship challenges to deal with as Venus makes aspect to the Uranus/Jupiter quincunx aspect now in the sky and exact on March 6,  my birthday.

Uranus is in Aries and Jupiter in Virgo, so there is a mismatch (quincunx) between those two energies.  Uranus seeks to awaken, make breakthroughs and generally to motivate us to move forward with our lives.

Jupiter in Virgo seeks to help us to put our affairs in order, to clean up and perfect.

And Venus is caught in the middle of all this, which means our relationships may be challenged by our desires for change and liberation as well as needs to make perfect and create order.

And all the while this week, the oceanic waves of change pushing at the Eclipse Portal will get stronger and stronger.

If you look out onto the global scene, you will see more chaos but also attempts at order in Syria, Libya, and Iraq. You will see more portents of greater troubles in Israel/Palestine; more irrationality with North Korea, more signs of economic dangers, and more fear from Republican leaders that they are losing control or their party with the winning by Donald Trump.

Waves of change are ready to pour through the Eclipse Portal, shaking up our world at its foundation.

Keep your self centered with a perspective of the bigger picture:   The Age of Aquarius needs the breakdown of old structures of our dysfunctional and toxic world in order to download new energies and light aligned with this New World.

Till next week at the Solar Eclipse,

Leo

Bringing in the Eclipses with Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast September 13-19

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 12, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week will bring some big energy shifts as important planetary movements show up.

There is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo Sunday September 13 at 2:41 AM EDT; there is a spiritually oriented opposition between Jupiter and Neptune on September 17; and Mercury goes Retrograde also on September 17 at 2:09 PM EDT.

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo is the first of two eclipses this September.  The second one will be a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries on September 27.

Eclipses generally shake up our usual rhythms and normal way of being, allowing change to come through.   This first eclipse, the Solar Eclipse, is a New Moon with much more power than the usual New Moon as it is an eclipse.   The Moon stands in between the Sun and Earth, effectively blocking out the light from the Earth.

Our ancestors of course would often get really freaked out as day turned to night at the wrong time.   This Solar Eclipse is only partial, and as such the Sun’s rays will not be totally blocked.  And here in the United States it will be nighttime during the eclipse, so it will not  show here.

Since this Eclipse is a New Moon in Virgo,  issues of bringing things into some kind of order or perfection will be swirling around our lives.  Being in dreamy, idealistic places will not last.  Virgo requires down to Earth realism.

Virgo often goes further than mere realism, and shows up as skepticism or just plain disbelief.    It is easy with Virgo to get into a “glass half empty” state of mind, which stops us from expecting too much and then getting disappointed.

So keep your feet on the ground, so to speak, as you go through this eclipse, not allowing yourself to get too swept up or overly excited about anything.  If you do, you will soon get knocked back down to “reality”.

Virgo also brings us to a more humble and simple attitude so we can see up close, without any frills or big egos. From that grounded humble place, we are more able to see what is wrong or what is broken.  And then we are better able to fix or heal what has gone wrong.

In the global world, events will take us out of any fantasies or bubbles we collectively find ourselves in.   We will be brought down to the reality of the economy, for instance.  Already we are seeing the Bears come out to slow down the global stock markets.

This comedown will continue until there is a crash that will precipitate the transformation of our global economic system, so that we can rebuild with the needs of all the people in mind.

Bernie Sanders is touching a nerve here in America, as he preaches about how the few hold so much of the wealth in the world.

How can any economic system be right when some people earn billions every year and others earn minimum wage of 7+ dollars an hour. Or as in other countries in the world sell their daughters or their kidneys so they can feed their families.

The trickle down theory of economics has soundly been shown to not work!  So as the economic structure of the world deteriorates, know that this is just part of a world wide transformation that will make the world more fair and just.

Maybe the stock markets will not go too far down this late summer and autumn, but if not they will soon. Reserve currency changing from the dollar to some other currency is what will likely be a major catalyst for global economic change.

And our Superpower status will change in other ways too.  The balance of power in the world is shifting too, as China, India, Russia, and Iran will continue to get stronger.    Hopefully there does not need to be big battles with China, Iran or Russia in order to usher in this change, but that could very well happen.

And it is more and more likely that Israel will be in the center of the big change coming.

Recent aspects to its natal Mars, the nuclear deal with Iran, and the Blood Moon on September 27 happening on a Jewish holiday promise likely big change for Israel.  Four Blood Moons in a row over the last 18 months have all happened on Jewish holidays.

This will not bring a messiah or herald the end of the world as many fundamentalist religious people are promising, but major conflict concerning Israel is likely this late summer and autumn.

The USA, since the Cardinal Grand Cross in 2014 crossed its natal Sun and Saturn, have had many aspects of Uranus and Pluto to that same natal Sun and Saturn.  And Pluto is still there affecting the well being of the USA.

So the USA can expect major events over the next year or so that will reshape how we think and live our lives.

Refugees from Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, and other places where major military conflicts are driving people from their homes, will continue to flood into Europe and the USA, changing the culture of these countries.

And the Islamic State continues to change boundaries between countries as it has gobbled up land in Iraq, Syria, Libya, and Egypt already.

The world is transforming in big ways and that process will be accelerated now. And mid week, as Mercury goes Retrograde and Jupiter opposes Neptune, there may be greater confusion on the state of the world.

Mercury Retrograde, beginning on the 17th, will shift our mental processes as it always does. It will stay until October 9, at which time it will go back Direct again.

As it is going Retrograde in the middle of two eclipses, we can expect that we will be brought through a time when we will be taken off our usual balance.

The Mercury Retrograde part of that unbalance will mainly affect our mental state.  When Mercury goes Retrograde, our usual mental agendas and paradigms are shifting, as our way of perceiving is in flux.

That is why it is always recommended not to make big decisions or stage big events during Mercury Retrograde.

I know many of you became aware of this need not to jump into things while Venus was Retrograde.  After it went back Direct on September 6, our hearts began to see more clearly what was really going on in certain relationships.

If we had jumped to conclusions or jumped into certain relationships, we would have put ourselves into something unhealthy or into something not really right for us.

Now close behind that Venus Retrograde we have Mercury Retrograde and the eclipses.  So stay on your toes, so to speak, and do not dig in or hold onto anything too tightly.  Over attachment to anything is not a good idea now, as the speed of change is strong now.

And Jupiter opposite Neptune this week will help you to surrender undo need for control.  That aspect is good for spiritual connection, for synchronicity and connection with the Universe.  Magic is alive if you are awake and alive.

But you will need some degree of trust so you can let the process of life unfold as it is meant to unfold.

Keep your mind and heart open to new ways of thinking and seeing.

There is a major portal opening now, bringing a flood of love and truth our way. Let that flood help you to release old ways that are not right for you anymore.

Often we are unaware of how much our society and family have programmed us to see ourselves, others and life in a certain way.    Let those preconceived notions organically leave your mind, so you can open to Truth, which will help you be more free.

Be open now to new truths, which are not sitting in Galaxies beyond our comprehension, but are sitting right before our eyes here up close in reality.

Did you ever walk into a room that you have walked through many times before, and all of a sudden see a picture or some object you thought you had never seen before? Then someone tells you it had always been there. You just had not put your attention there before.  You see it now because you are ready to see it.

That is how some truths can come to you now, right before your eyes now open to see.

Also I have a new YouTube video for the eclipses for you to see.

And my wife Deborah has just started a blog will bring to you a greater sense of life’s sacredness and our human connection to our Earth, Feminine mysteries and that which brings us all together in unity.

Till next week,

Leo

Dawn’s Early Light and Astrology Forecast July 27- August 2.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 26, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are truly moving forward now into a New Chapter and Season of our lives on Planet Earth.  Yesterday Friday July 25 Mars went into focused and intense Scorpio, and the New Moon conjunct expansive Jupiter is today July 26 at 6:42 PM EDT.  This new season at the New Moon has begun after the Cardinal Grand Cross this last spring and thus represents a powerful new beginning.

Maybe for some loose ends still need to be tied and a bit more clarity needs to form, but we have each hopefully jumped on the moving train and are ready to go.

The only thing you need to be sure of now is what you believe.  Do you at the core of your being believe we live in a connected and meaningful Universe?  Or have you bought into the fear based programming of the world?

What you now attract to your self is very dependent on that belief system.   Will you attract the “better angels” inside your self and in the Universe, or will you attract the ones that will swallow you up into more hellish places in your mind and heart?

Are the circumstances that unfolded during this past Spring Eclipse Season with the Cardinal Cross meaningful and meant to usher in a new Chapter of your life; or were those events random bad luck or good luck?  It is your choice.

Even if the those events were painful and difficult, they still happened for a reason, were a learning experience or a motivation to accept the turning pages into a New Chapter of your life.  Or do you see it differently, through eyes of more “glass half empty” focus?

We cannot stop the changing tides of life, but we can better adapt and evolve within those changes if we believe our lives are sacred and meaningful.   This is not necessarily about believing in “God”, but more about believing in spirit and soul and believing that we humans are capable of evolving into beings who can have love and truth as our guiding lights.

This is absolutely necessary now. Take a look at our world now.  The old world is beginning to come apart.  We are being brought to “judgment days” inside ourselves.

Do we see the unravelling, which has much violence in its process, as a sign we are all going down into the abyss together?  Or do we see this as part of the transformation into an Aquarian Age, part of the process of releasing old programs and beliefs that can not come with us if we are to truly evolve and survive?

What is happening now in Gaza is a terrible tragedy.  These bombings are indiscriminate and reflective of a lack of concern for the people there. As of this writing over 1000 people have died in Gaza as a result of these attacks, the vast majority civilians, and many children.

This is part of the old paradigm of only caring about “me and mine”, “us versus them” mentality, needs for superiority and inferiority, and needing enemies to fear and hate.

The Middle East, a place of the original human civilizations and organized religions, reflects our roots which have decayed.   Now we need a deep transformation, from the core of our beings, so we can build an Age of Aquarius from the ashes of that old world and paradigm.

You can expect more turmoil in the Middle East and in Ukraine/Russia and elsewhere, as old borders from a contrived world of nations break down. The Old Order is no longer viable.

A new world, an Age of Aquarius is within our grasp if we get to a consciousness that believes we are equal in value, and that a world of Diversity in Unity is possible, a world where love and truth are our guiding lights.

In your own world do your best to balance an allowing of the change, with a holding onto some security and stability.

And now, with the New Moon in Leo and Mars moving into Scorpio, there is a  breaking open of that which was still stuck, a release of the old, and a burst of energy giving movement to go forward.  In addition, Venus will trigger the Uranus/Pluto square and the old Cardinal Grand Cross this coming week, to add to the intensity and power of transformation.

Much of this energy will be passionate and potentially quite creative too. It is best now not to try too hard to control or repress the natural movement inside and around you.

Find the proper boundaries or limits so you are not flooded with emotion or anxiety, but do nonetheless allow nature to take its course.

This is only the beginning of chaotic turmoil in the greater world, it will continue to intensify.   It will affect all corners of our Earthly world.  The way we have been programmed to believe, the world we have been conditioned to find stability within, will be entering our rear view mirror.

We are being awakened to the truth and to new ways of thinking, being, and feeling.   We are being dis-illusioned from the government, media, and corporate programming of who are the “good guys” and who are the “bad guys”. Wake up and realize the so-called bad guys see the supposed good guys as their bad guys.   It is all made up as an excuse to fight against those who seemingly threaten our way of life.   We must end this old paradigm.

As we awaken out of our slumber, we drop into a deeper knowing that we are all one human family in an Age of Aquarius.

Resist the urge to hate Putin or hate Islamists or anyone else, as our media and corporate/government powers from an old age try to convince us.

Resist also your desire to hate your ex-husband or boss or father or whomever.   Their presence in your life is as a teacher of something you need to learn or experience.

And all of us are moving back “home”  inside ourselves, some faster than others, but all wanting to know we are safe in the arms of a loving Universe.

See you next week,

Leo

No Problem, Only Solutions and Astrology Forecast November 18-24

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are right in the middle of the Eclipse Season Autumn 2012.   The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio brought increased intensity to our lives, and deeper feelings and passions have been surfacing. If you are like many of us, disagreements came up in our friendships and relationships, some very intense and sometimes even nasty. Hopefully you used these conflicts to better understand your self and one another, to clear the air, to find healing.

But in other cases, deep resentments and bitterness came out, and people realized that their relationship or friendship is not good anymore.  And in the greater world, passions intensified, and conflict blew open into ugly war.

As we have been alerting you, the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio would bring a most powerful eruption in the Middle East, and that was a war between Palestinian Hamas and Israel.  This can potentially become a regional Middle East war, as Syria, Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon and Iran could become involved.   Scorpio brings primal passions, New Moons bring fires of ignition, and Solar Eclipses bring at least 10 times more power than the usual New Moon.

CIA director Petraeus has also became involved in a Scorpionic drama of secrets, sex, and perhaps a cover-up in the Libyan murders of 4 Americans, a drama that blew up big around the Scorpio Eclipse.

And as we also alerted you, the economy has shown much trouble- with low corporate earnings, a fiscal cliff to deal with, and a rapidly falling stock market. These issues, along with the problems in Europe, make it clear our world wide economic system needs deep transformation.

The natural disasters I warned about did not happen in any big way last week, but we can definitely expect to see more of them before the eclipse season ends. Of course Hurricane Sandy brought in the first big waves of the Eclipse Season.

All these events are bringing us through the transition between ages, and setting us up for a potentially big shift as the Mayan Calendar ends on December 21, 2012.

We also have written the last couple of weeks about the culture wars in the USA, which seems like a brewing Civil War, with state participants similar to those during the Civil War of 1861-1865.  Lincoln was president then. Obama, who may be his reincarnation, is president now. Whether he is or isn’t, the similarities are striking, even little things like both came from Illinois and Obama insisted on using the same velvet covered Bible that Lincoln used for his presidential inauguration for his own inauguration.

And of course you noticed all the states that have made petition to secede from the United States since Obama was reelected?   Over 700,000 people from mostly southern states have already signed, and states like Texas already have enough signatures to bring their petition to the President. What happens after that I do not know. But with an African American President now, knowing that states during the Civil War were seceding because they wanted to keep slavery in the south, does it not at least seem like some kind of repeating of history or coming full circle is going on?

We in the USA are obviously at a major crossroads in our collective journey.   As we leave an old age to enter an Aquarian Age,  what will happen to our nation?   With our natal Moon in Aquarius, we have a Bill or Rights, Constitution, and core set of values that are about  liberation, equality,self determination, and Diversity in Unity, which resonates with the sign Aquarius and the New Age.

But superpowers are not equal members of the world body, and all peoples- not just Americans- need to be free, and equal, and self determining.   And our whole world needs to be honored as diverse, yet equal and in Unity.  And invading other nations, colonizing and dominating, and wanting them to have our same democracy, capitalism, and way of life is against our core principles.

And haven’t our big Government and Big Corporate institutions taken away our individual freedoms and power of the people here and around the world?

The big changes coming our way are meant to help all of us to release the toxins and blocks that hold us back from fully embracing our New World.

As events swirl into your own life during this eclipse season, open to new consciousness.  Sometimes every way one looks there are apparent stop signs and no potential choice seems right.   But first of all one needs patience and trust, and to believe there is a way, even if it does show yet.

John Lennon sang in one of his last songs, ” no problem, only solutions”.  Meditate on that, there is much truth in that statement in new world consciousness.  When we come up on a challenging situation or event, it is best to look at it as the Universe bringing us a situation that is meaningful for us. It is bringing up issues that need to dealt with, so we can release what is no longer working for us, and open us to new possibilities.

Sometimes we think we are stuck because we are having difficulty letting go of something or some ingrained idea in our head.  Perhaps it is time to let go or release, but our fears and practical concerns hold us back.  Can you trust that if you make a decision based on where the signs and symbols are pointing for you to go, that all will turn out for the best?

” No problem, only solutions”, so there is a way to go that is right for you, and not only right for you but for all concerned.  But that way may not satisfy our ego controls, selfish desires, or security fears.

So when you visualize or pray, ask that you will be shown- by symbols, signs and synchronicities- to the way that is best in the bigger picture for ALL CONCERNED. And the answers you receive might not be what tradition or conventional world “wisdom” believes.  Go outside the boxes and straight to your deeper soul and the Universe.  There true wisdom lies.  There is a way to go that is in the best higher interest of everyone, though in the little picture it may seem bad.

And keep in mind that mind and heart integrity is essential, as sometimes people can see symbols and signs and synchronicities through rose colored glasses or perhaps through the lens of fear.  It is essential that you look with an objective vision, without attaching to any certain way. This does not mean you cannot make intention and co-create with the Universe. But it does mean you respect what is eventually determined by source and deeper soul.

So be flexible during this Eclipse Season, and “listen carefully” to what your deeper soul is showing you that you are ready to listen to.   Let go of old ways that are ripe to be picked off your tree of security.  There are many new ways of seeing and experiencing life now.

In the greater world dramas and in your personal life, new revelations will bring dis-illusion, so you can see the truth.   Though painful at first, these truths will set you free from the old paradigm, and open you to the consciousness and ways of the Aquarian Age.

We have another Eclipse coming on November 28, the week after Thanksgiving here in the USA. It will be a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius/Gemini.  It will also be quite strong, especially so because Mars will be conjunct Pluto then, triggering the Uranus/Pluto revolutionary square.

We are in powerful revolutionary and evolutionary times, more powerful than the ’60s.    All is meant to get better and better, though pain and ugly world events are part of the process sometimes.

This coming week, in between the two eclipses, will be still powerful; but hopefully a bit more tame.  The Sun moves into Sagittarius this coming Wednesday the 21st bringing rising spirits, inspiration, a renewed sense of higher meaning,  and a stronger need to find solution. On Thursday the Sun squares Neptune helping us to surrender, go with the flow, and enter deeper soul realms.  

On Friday Mars squares Uranus, breaking open anything that has been closed down, and taking us outside any boxes that limit our view and experience. This also triggers the Uranus/Pluto square, and brings all the world events to another level of intensity.

And please keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde, until November 26, so stay centered and aware, and do not jump to conclusions. Making major decisions is more precarious now, and signing contracts can go bad.  The eclipses are bringing energies that can take us off our normal balance, and making bad decisions while Mercury is still Retrograde.

This does not mean you should be superstitious or fearful; it only means you should realize that perceptions can be off.

See you next week,

Leo

As You Know It, So Shall it Be and Astrology Forecast September 16-22.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

Well there is a lot going on astrologically, and of course that means there is a lot going on in the world.  This forecast blog has been letting people know that the Middle East is center stage in the transformation of our planet from an old age and paradigm to an Aquarian Age.

It is where many of our world’s first civilizations were born and where most of our major religions have their roots.  It is where now much of the toxicity based on dysfunctional patterns of separation abound.

This past week, in connection with the Uranus/Pluto square while Pluto changes direction on September 18/19, the Middle East has been erupting. It is ostensibly in turmoil because of a really dumb and horribly disparaging film about Mohammed and Islam.  I saw much of this film on UTube. It portrays Mohammed as a child molester, a fraud, a homosexual, and also a person who sexually uses women and pillages. It is very weird and poorly made, and very disrespectful of the cherished beliefs of millions of people.

This movie is the match that is igniting the dry brush of perceived disgust and disrespect from western nations and peoples toward Islam and its culture.

If not this movie, something else would have ignited the flames.   Soon Syria, Iran, Israel, Egypt, and many other countries will be drawn into the fires of conflict.  Watch carefully this coming week’s news there, and be aware that in November, after the elections, that Syria and Iran especially will be in the spotlight of world affairs and a possible Israeli or western powers invasion could occur.

In November, while Mercury is retrograde, there will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on November 13. That is the exact date anniversary of the coup that brought the Assad family and the Baathist Shiite party in to power in Syria. That was November 13, 1970.

Soon afterwards this year there will be a second eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini on November 28.    Mars will be triggering the Uranus/Pluto square then also as it makes conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn on November 27.

The fires of transformation will be especially strong in late October through December.    This coming week brings much opportunity for healing and transformation also.

The week’s power begins today Saturday September 15 with a New Moon in Virgo at 10:11 PM EDT.   As with all new moons, it is time for new beginnings.   In Virgo it becomes time to get more grounded and real. Virgo is skeptical of anything that flies too high or that stops being “real”.

It is indeed time to get your head out of any dream world clouds of fantasy or illusion, and to see life for real,as that way you can get your life to work better and be more ordered and efficient.  Simplifying your life and fixing and healing what needs to be fixed and healed, is also aligned for this lunar cycle.

Since the Uranus/Pluto square is opening up now also, especially strong because Pluto is stationary, going from retrograde to direct; there is much intensity to deal with.  Change is in the air, and you can best use this time period to allow your deeper issues to come up to the surface where they can better be worked with.  In fact it may be very difficult at times to hold the energies back.

Transformation and healing are dependent on feeling our issues emotionally, not just looking at them intellectually.  In feeling them, we are at the deeper level from which true change is possible.  So at times like this, you may get into emotional discussions that bring up uncomfortable issues that have been previously kept securely “under the rug” of our consciousness.

As they come up, we better understand “where we are at” on a deeper level, and can then better judge if we want to improve something or some relationship or if we want to let it go.  Can an old pattern be healed and transformed, or is it indicative of something that has died and must be let go?

These are not times to stubbornly hold onto the status quo of “same-old, same-old” in our lives. The deck of our lives is being reshuffled and we need to be ready to shift what needs to shifted.

A new chapter of our lives has begun, and we must do our best to see it that way. If we do we can give perspective to what needs to be changed.  What ways are reflective of how we were leading our lives in the chapter that is passing?    What new ways of being have we recently opened up to and are getting used to?

Release what keeps you stuck in old and unsatisfactory attitudes and beliefs.  Embrace that which makes you feel better about your self and life.  You want to be aligned with your authentic soul self and with the Universe, free to see the truth and to love and be loved.  The old patterns of programming from society and family and past lives has not served you so far, so why would they now?

It may feel sometimes that when you release and let things go, that there will be nothing to replace them, but there will be. Life always fills up the vacuum of what has been released, in time.

When you see the destruction in the greater world now, the hatreds and intolerance, the chaos and attempts to militaristically bring order, stay out of its way.

Do not let yourself get emotionally hooked into the dramas, taking sides and picking out enemies.  What is happening is meant to clear the way for a New World. Those who are hooked in are a part of that old world, and will need this time to hopefully see that this is all so toxic and dysfunctional and reflective of a world filled with beliefs of separation.

We are all one, with many shades and differences and orientations. We are all one family. There is dark and light in everything, “good and bad” in everyone and everything, so to speak. There is no religion or race or nation, or sexual orientation superior to any other.   We were created as a Unified Whole, and every cell in that Whole is also meant to  be Whole.

The Aquarian Age is about equality and Diversity in Unity, liberation and freedom, all the opposites joined as one.  Night and Day are unified to make the whole day. Yin and Yang are connected in circular oneness, hot and cold do not fight for which is better. The plug and outlet are meant to be joined.

It is time for each of us to know that all the dots in the Universe are connected with sacred meaning, not in random nothingness.

As you know it, so shall it be.

Use these powerful planetary movements to help you to let go of limiting beliefs, and of an old world and its paradigm, which is on the edge of destruction.  Instead use the transformational openings that are being created to find new connections, and to embrace the Love and Truth that are the pillars that hold up our Universe.

Next Saturday, when we “speak” again, it will be time for the Autumn Equinox, the balancing of the scales of Libra. It will be the “sunset” time of year, when we start our yin-ward movement toward more yearnings for relationship and deeper meaning.

see you next week,

Leo

Revolution, Evolution and Astrology Forecast for August 21-27

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 20, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

If you have been waiting for things to shift, or for some clarity and direction, or for decisions to be made, or for things to open up, help is on the way.

We are now in the last week of Mercury retrograde, as Mercury will go direct on August 26.  Two days later on August 28 there is New Moon in Virgo.

Before that, in the immediate week ahead, we are in the last quarter Moon- lasting until that New Moon in Virgo on August 28.

Last quarter moons are the last part of the waning Moon phase and are times to slow down and go inside and reflect.    Mercury finishing up its retrograde time gives us the same theme of going inward to contemplate.

Do not “push the river” now,  let it flow. Let go and let nature take its course.  Wait for the air to clear and for openings to appear before you thrust forward with your plans.  I know how easy it is to get anxious when we have to wait, but learning patience and trust helps our psychological and spiritual development, and lessens stress.  Life is changing however, and the status quo cannot be held for long.

We are feeling differently inside.    We know we are in the beginning stages of a vast transformation of our human lives here on planet Earth.   And the changes you are going through in your consciousness and personal life are meant to put you in line with these bigger changes.

There is revolution swirling all around the Earth.  People are getting tired of having their lives controlled by forces outside themselves.  Big Corporations and Big Governments are not serving our human family.   So many people are feeling like they want to be liberated.  So many live their lives with no real of sense of purpose.  It is because they have been programmed to give their loyalty to a state or job or family, and have lost their sense of their own individuality, their own free mind and heart and soul.

Do you believe your short time on this Earth is meant to be in service to the rich and privileged who act as if they own the Earth and the creatures who dwell upon it?  Our ancestors and founders of America believed otherwise. They set up our country on the belief that all are created equal and endowed by the Universe with natural rights including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  They believed the world belongs to “we the people”, not governments or corporations or privileged royalty.

Yet our country has left its principles and has  become an empire, invading and colonizing other peoples and taking away their liberty and their god given right of self determination. It is run by mega corporations and dyfunctional government serving its own interests, far removed from the needs of the people.

And all over the world, not just here in America, wealthy and privileged run the every day lives of ordinary people, who slave to just make ends meet and do jobs not aligned with their true selves and true potential of contribution to our human community here on Earth.

So revolution is stirring, it has been sweeping lives in the Middle East and Northern Africa. It is beginning to happen in England and will before long envelope much of the world.   The great transformation of our economic system is happening now as the markets all around the world are plunging.   Great empires are falling.

The Soviet Union fell in the ’90s and its downfall was preceded by its failure in Afghanistan.  The USA empire is now in its downfall, and the failure in Afghanistan is growing into reality.  Empires have no role in an Aquarian Age, or do Big Corp or Big Government or privileged royalty.  There is no more need for Romes on this Earth.  The USA needs to return to its original values.

Many believe the cusp of the Aquarian Age was approached when Uranus was discovered in 1781.  Synchronistically, two revolutions that demanded power to the people were erupting surrounding that time period: The American and French revolutions. Uranus is considered the ruling planet of Aquarius.

So you can see what the Aquarian Age will be like.  It is to be “of the people, by the people, and for the people” all over the world, not just here in America. It is about equality and Diversity in Unity.

So now as life thrusts us into situations that shake up our lives, remember you are being helped to leave the situations and people in your life that keep you chained. You are being helped to find your free and authentic self and to connect with the greater Universe.  Your connection with the Universe will serve to bring you to your true life and real purpose for living. It will help you to evolve your consciousness and life aligned with the Aquarian Age we are fast forward moving into.

This coming week we meet up with the Sun going into Virgo on Tuesday August 23 and then the Moon meeting up with the Sun in Virgo on August 28 to form a New Moon in Virgo.  This means it is soon time to get down to business, to face reality, to get your life in order.

As Mercury goes direct this coming Friday August 26, clarity begins to form and then we feel a nudge forward at that Virgo New Moon.

Late September and October bring meaningful movements of Comet Elenin and October 28 is the end of the Mayan Calendar according to expert researcher Carl Calleman.

Therefore we can expect transformational energies to accelerate.    We could be looking at big world change and world events before October 28.  Especially look for continued shocks to the old economy, for more world revolutionary movements, for big changes in the Middle East, especially in Israel/Palestine.

This past week showed stock plunges all over the world, serious revolutionary movements in Libya and Syria, and conflict greatly intensifying between Israel and the Palestinians.

See you next week,

Leo
