This week brings us important energy shifts as we experience a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius and Mercury Retrograde.

On Monday August 7 there is the first of 2 eclipses this August:  A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius at 2:11 PM EDT.

This is not a total lunar eclipse and it will not be seen in the United States as it happens during daylight hours all across the North American continent.

The Sun will be in Leo and the Moon exactly opposite in Aquarius.  

Lunar Eclipses are always Full Moons, and have the Sun and Moon exactly opposite one another. The shadow of the Earth covers the Moon creating the eclipse.

The Sun will be at 15+ degrees of Leo and the Moon will be at 15+ degrees of Aquarius. In this Full Moon Mars will be conjunct the Sun and opposite the Moon, as it will be at 11+ degrees of Leo.  Mars will add more forcefulness to the event.

So if you have any planets in the mid degrees of fixed signs Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, or Scorpio you will be more affected than others.  And of course the Leo and Aquarius planets will be the most important.

This is a Full Moon, so those of you who are sensitive to the energies of Full Moons will be especially energized as eclipses have much more energy and power than the usual Full Moons.

I do not expect this Eclipse to be as important or strong as the next one,  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo.  But it is still strong and important.

Eclipses “intend” to shake us up, take us off our usual balance, and create conditions for breakthroughs and awakenings, or for breakdowns.

An issue to be aware of with this Lunar Eclipse will be about expressing and knowing one’s heart (Leo), or instead using one’s head or mind for knowing (Aquarius).

As an example if someone was out choosing a car to buy, would they choose the one that they love because of its beauty and gadgets or would they choose the one they think is better for the environment and for lower gas mileage?

Aquarius is not only more leaning toward the mind, it is also leaning toward what is more socially conscious or better for the community. And it also tends to want that which is different, not necessarily what is considered “normal”.

Leo is more concerned with what opens its heart, is more popular, and perhaps gives it a better image. It likes people or things that it “falls in love” with.

Neither way is better, just different, as we need to trust both our heads and hearts.

Globally there may be conflicts between that which a strong leader demands (Leo) versus that which the larger community demands (Aquarius).

Aquarius sees the strong leader taking the power away from the people.  Leo sees the community of “equals” as never getting things done, indecisive, and without clear direction.

They need each other.

Pay attention to these issues playing out in your personal life and in the greater world. Watch for events in the 3-4 days surrounding this Eclipse for signs of what is wanting to break through or break down.    What is needing to be let go from the past, and what does one need to be open to that one is moving toward?

What represents the old chapter and old world, with its old patterns and beliefs; and what wants to open up that represents the new chapter in our lives?

Eclipses are good motivators for change and transformation.  Relationship issues may more likely show themselves than is usual. If so, then it is time to deal with things that have been pushed under the rug of our consciousness.

Wanting to more authentically express oneself may happen at this time.  And ego battles may be more likely now too.

The next Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21 will be even more likely to bring out these issues.

Not long after the frequencies of the Lunar Eclipse this week subside, we encounter Mercury Retrograde.

Mercury goes Retrograde in Virgo at 9 PM EDT on Saturday August 12.

Mercury will stay Retrograde during the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21, and will last until September 5 when it goes back Direct again. It will go into Leo during its Retrograde journey, which is where it will be at when it goes back Direct.

Like all Mercury Retrograde periods, our perceptions naturally change, as we tend to look at things differently.

We may give pause and shift our thinking about what we had previously planned on doing or saying; and we may then want to go in a different direction.

Do your best to wait until Mercury goes back Direct before making a final decision.  And it often takes a week or so after it goes Direct before real clarity appears.

And with Eclipse Season shaking things up and potentially creating more chaotic situations, the fogginess of Mercury Retrograde will make clarity and direction even more difficult to ascertain.

Let this Eclipse Season play itself out before jumping to conclusions. Of course we want to know what to do as soon as possible, but sometimes like now, we need to let the process unfold all the way.

Trust the Universe and your own Self to bring you what is right at the right time.

September should be as energized  and even more filled with important events than August, as the New Moon on August 21 opens up a whole new lunar cycle that reaches almost to the Autumn Equinox.

The Portal of new energy opens up on August 21 and many new experiences and events will follow.

But for now, we have a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon to experience, and it will bring a shift of energies, and also events that could be important.

Later this August we will encounter the Total Solar Eclipse with Mars not far away from it,  at close to the same time as Saturn going Direct,  Mars sextile Saturn and Jupiter, and Jupiter sextile Saturn.  

The last part of August will see the speed of change picking up steam. And this speed of change will continue through September and beyond as a Portal will be opened at the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21.

But for now, this week gives us an important Lunar Eclipse in Leo/Aquarius, that has within it Mars in Leo conjunct the Sun in Leo and opposite the Moon in Aquarius.

That will be followed closely by Mercury beginning its Retrograde movement on August 12.

Now is the time to let yourself let go and just take the roller coaster ride. It will start relatively slowly and pick up speed as it goes, with its most intense period being around the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo.

Out with the Old, In with the New, and Astrology Forecast July 30-August 5

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 29, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now pretty solidly into the Eclipse Season, even though we have not yet experienced the first eclipse yet.  It will be on August 7, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius.

We entered Eclipse Season at the Leo New Moon on July 23. It is the first of two Leo New Moons, the 2nd one a powerful Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo.

The sign Leo at its worst is big Ego,  and dominating personality.

So last week not long after the Leo New Moon we are introduced to Anthony Scaramucci, the new Communications Director of the White House; and General John Kelly, the new White House Chief of Staff.  These are dominating men for sure, with large egos.

This shows us Trump wants to get even more dominating and fascistic in his governance. They, especially Scaramucci, will be mini-me’s of Trump.

Also this last week to start up the Eclipse Season, North Korea tested a missile that is said to be able to reach New York and even Chicago.   And Iran also tested a a long range missile this last week.

And in Israel/Palestine much violence has been erupting around Temple Mount and Al Aqsa Mosque praying compound for Muslim worship. This is an especially holy place for both Israel and the Arab world and very hotly disputed for who has ownership.

From a much more positive viewpoint this past week, pointing us to the Age of Aquarius:  The UN has stated it wants to ban pesticides, which will negatively affect Monsanto; and Tesla is intending to mass produce battery operated cars at an affordable price. Also the attempt of pushing through an even worse health care plan was defeated in the Senate. I know the day is not far away when single payer health insurance will be what the USA has in place for universal health care.

As we often state, there is the old world which will now come at us in an often monstrous way in order to show us what we need to get rid of in our world; while the light of the new world comes pouring in to show us what is coming in from the Age of Aquarius.

Look at your own life that way too.  Stay present to see old ways of being in your life that need to be released.  And open up to embrace new ways that are more healthy for you, are aligned with your authenticity, and are connected to the new age we are moving into.

We are all going through this process to some extent, and now in Eclipse Season, there will be events and inner stirrings that will accelerate the process of transformation.

The events from the old world are and will continue to be events that can evoke great fear in us. We must stay connected to the bigger picture, to the Universe and to love and trust in our hearts. The focus cannot be on the fear or hatred.

Trump’s administration, from both a negative and positive standpoint, is weakening the standing of the USA in the world.  The positive part of that is that the USA is moving toward being an equal member of the world community.  President Obama was moving in that direction already.

Now this administration is taking us temporarily backwards into “America First” and dominance, not relationship with the rest of the world.

This is and will continue to cause countries like Iran and North Korea to want to flex their military muscles. This old attitude will also tend to move us toward a greater likelihood of war.

As we have said before, this month of August is a major turning point to show us what direction we are moving in with our military and economy.

And of course that military and economy are what make up the Military/Industrial Complex that dominates the USA and world.  It is what will need to break down in order for the USA and world to transform into the Age of Aquarius.

This coming week, just before the Lunar Eclipse next week, brings us Venus moving into Cancer;  Uranus changing directions to Retrograde;and Jupiter square Pluto.

Venus moves into Cancer this Monday July 31. It will stay in Cancer until August 26. While in Cancer, the planet of love and relationship seeks a nurturing kind of loving, one that is understanding, supportive, and soul connected.  If your relationships lack this quality, it will be much more evident this month.

You may not be giving others this nurturance, but even more likely you are not receiving this nurturance.

On August 2/3 Uranus stops and then goes from Direct to Retrograde.  When a planet changes directions its energy and purpose are in the spotlight of our lives.

Uranus acts contrary to the accepted and often conventional ways, it rules rebellion and revolution. Uranus also wants liberation from anything and anyone that “chains” it up.

Uranus takes us outside of any boxes of thinking we have been stuck in, helping us to think inventively about possibilities.

And of course Uranus is the “ruling” planet of Aquarius, so let it help you this week to get you out of ruts and old stuck ways. It can then help you to further your movement toward new ways, even if those new ways are not considered “normal” by society, family, or even yourself.

Surprising events in the world may also occur.  And for this Uranus movement and for Eclipse Season in general, natural calamities are more likely, like Earthquakes, Hurricanes, etc.

Jupiter square Pluto on Friday August 4 is the most intense and powerful aspect this week. It is an appetizer to the Lunar Eclipse next Monday the 7th.

It is important this month to allow yourself to let go and take the ride.  Try not to judge too much, make absolute pronouncements or decisions. Let it all play out and do your best to trust the process.

This advice will be especially pertinent with Mercury going Retrograde on August 12, in between the two eclipses.

Do your best not to fret or look down for long.  No one event or thought or emotional eruption is the end of any story, so to speak.  Let it all play out.

This is an important month for motivating us to commit ever more strongly to our own growth and evolution, to our contribution to our world in its journey into an Age of Aquarius.

There will be magic, synchronicity, and symbols from the Universe this month.  There will be shows of love you did not expect.  There will be times when you can clearly see there is a new world we are moving into.

The trick is to concentrate on those things, not focus on what will bring you more fear and worry.  It is true the old world will be showing its worst face and attempting to keep the old paradigm alive.

So it is our role to show the new world’s best face and to make sure we connect with the new paradigm being born.

Please take a look at new video I made about the coming eclipses:

Till next week,

Leo

Resting Up and Astrology Forecast July 2-8.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 1, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have entered the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle that began at the Cancer New Moon on June 23.  So thus we are waxing our way up to the Full Moon in Capricorn on July 7/8.

So this week we are only 3 weeks away from the intial winds of Eclipse Season. Then the 1st eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon will be on August 7.  The 2nd eclipse, a most powerful Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo will be on August 21.

These Eclipse Seasons usually happen twice a year, with 2 eclipses in each season.

Eclipse Seasons begin two weeks or so before the first eclipse in a season, and extend to at least two weeks after the last eclipse in a season. These seasons are almost always big turning points in world and personal affairs.

The last Eclipse season was from January 27- March 27 2017.

The Eclipse Seasons often have breakdowns of old habits, patterns, beliefs, and sometimes even breakdowns in relationships, jobs, families, and home lives.

But just as frequently there are usually breakthroughs into awakened thoughts and new ways of living, better relationships, jobs and home lives.

Change is quite frequent during Eclipse Seasons, and much of that change can become transformational, and can open one up to healing of old wounds and traumas.

Keeping status quo is difficult during an Eclipse Season, and usually some part of one’s life will show big movement and change, even if it is one’s belief systems or ways of perceiving one’s life.

Often the issues that are ripe for change and transformation show up before the Eclipse Season, but the intensity of need for their transformation heats up appreciably during the Season, and especially so close to the actual Eclipse event.

If a country or person has any of their personal natal planets in close aspect to the sign and degree of the Eclipse, then that country or person will be most challenged with issues that require one’s close attention.

For instance the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21 will be at almost 29 degreees of Leo.  Donald Trump’s natal Ascendent is at 29 + degrees of Leo and his Mars is at almost 27 degrees of Leo.

So his rising sign, which signifies how he interacts with his world, and his Mars, which signifies how he asserts, fights, and defends himself, are in self involved Leo.

Leo expresses openly and creatively, but when out of balance expresses in a totally self centered way, which if taken to the limit becomes narcissism.

That Leo part of his disposition will be triggered around the eclipse, and since specifically his Mars in Leo will be triggered, he will be vociferously fighting or defending himself (even more than usua), and not unlikely will be using that aggression as Commander in Chief of the United States military.

If your own natal planets will be triggered, you too will have parts of your psyche and life activated and put in the spotlight for change and transformation.

If you have planets from 26 degrees Leo to 1 degree of Virgo you will be greatly affected by that Total Solar Eclipse on August 21.   If you have planets from 26 degrees of Aquarius to 1 degree of Pisces you will be at least substantially affected.

If you have planets from 26 degrees of Taurus to 1 degree of Gemini or 26 degrees of Scorpio to 1 degree of Sagittarius you will be at least somewhat affected.

And of course all of us will be affected by the eclipses as citizens of the world, and most especially the USA where this Total Eclipse will be seen.

World events that are warm now will be much hotter during the actual Eclipse Season, which will begin around the Leo New Moon on July 23.

For now find what nurtures you and helps you to feel safe and loved.  Gather yourself and solidify what is important to you.

It is Sun in Cancer time of year when nature is abundant and the needs for nurturance and unconditional love are at their highest.   What signifies home and family to you needs to be experienced before Eclipse Season begins.

The most vulnerable in our world will need the most care now: our children, our elderly, our wounded, our innocent animals.

This week begins rather intensely as Mars opposes Pluto on Sunday July 2.  Be careful to not emotionally overreact reacting to situations and people.

Also this week, as the Moon gets brighter and brighter on its way to a full moon, Venus will move from Taurus to Gemini on the 4th of July, and will stay in Gemini until July 31.

As Venus moves out of Taurus and into Gemini, it leaves its priority being for physical comfort and care, and for monetary and relationship security.

Its new priority becomes being social and gaining intellectual stimulation, being light and free spirited, and open to being a social butterfly.

On July 5 Mercury leaves Cancer and enters Leo, where it will stay until July 25.

When in Cancer, Mercury’s mental tendencies are to combine its head with its feelings, and sometimes to be confused between thinking and feeling.

As Mercury, the planet of  thinking and communicating, shifts into Leo,  fun creative thinking and openly sharing of ideas become greater priorities.

And at the end of this week,  there is a Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn on July 8 overnight into July 9 at 12:07 AM EDT.

Nurturance and inner values (Cancer) are needing to be balanced with needs for accomplishment and outer validation of one’s efforts (Capricorn).

Balance is also needed between permissive unconditional allowing attitudes (Cancer), with strict guidelines and rules and clear boundaries (Capricorn).

The actual Full Moon has Pluto conjunct the Moon in Capricorn which increases the emotional intensity and opens things up to transformation through catharsis.

Full Moon have an energetic effect a day or two before full moon, on the date of the full moon and up to two days after.  This Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn can also bring up parental issues and can make clear what iis needed for greater stability in one’s life.

The next full moon will be on August 7, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius.

Time now to nurture and stabilize before the intensity increases in Eclipse Season.

Till next week,

Leo

We will do a video in July for the important August Total Solar Eclipse and Eclipse Season.  We will have a new website up to view in July also.
