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

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

Streams of Change and Astrology Forecast February 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 6, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

 

In March a Major Portal will open the floodgates of accelerated transformational changes for both our global and personal lives. 

Two important Eclipses will burst forward then:  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in water sign Pisces, and a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra

Of course those waters flowing through the new Portal will seek to break down any blockages in systems, souls, and bodies; so these healing waters of revolution and evolution can live more fully in us.

So we have about a month before this transformational energy comes rushing through.

This Monday February 8 brings us an important new beginning with a New Moon in Aquarius.

In many ways sensitive people will begin to experience the Eclipse Season after this New Moon in Aquarius.

Floods of soulful energies will pour through our world beginning at the Solar Eclipse in water sign Pisces.  

Water Bearer Aquarius, an air sign, carries streams of change that will open into an ocean of change at the Solar Eclipse in Pisces. Neptune is the “ruler” of Pisces and of course Neptune is the God of the Oceans.

The New Moon this week in Aquarius is at 9:39 AM EST.  It brings the beginning waves of the Eclipse Season.

So an important lunar cycle begins at the New Moon in Aquarius this week.  It carries the energies and issues that will burst forth in March, dramatically changing our lives both personally and globally.

Then April will continue the onslaught of transformational energies, as the Uranus/Pluto square (still in effect), will be triggered as Mars changes directions and Mercury goes Retrograde again.

So at this New Moon in Aquarius, allow the new energies to seep in slowly before their Grand opening in March and April.

This New Moon in Aquarius gets us more attuned with our need to be very distinct individualized persons, being authentic and not molding ourselves according to societal or family dictates.

At the same time as we get in touch with that which makes us unique and different,  aligned with the sign Aquarius we ironically seek socially conscious groups that we can somehow fit into.

Often I write about Diversity within Unity being the callling card of the Age of Aquarius.

Aquarius is about being your unique self with unique function in the community, equal in value to all others, all in unity.

This New Moon in Aquarius is a good time to really get in touch with what you believe in idealistically and politically.

The elections for President should be about who answers your calls for the type of world you believe in, not who is the lesser of evils.

If people keep voting for lesser of two evils, we will always have an “evil” world, so to speak.

This time there are candidates outside the usual boxes, as the world is moving into a New Age.  Vote your heart and conscience, not according to some political “wisdom”.

The Iowa caucus showed favorites doing well, and Ted Cruz won the Republican caucus while Sanders and Clinton were pretty much even.

Astrologically speaking, I do not see Cruz winning.   Rubio, Trump, Bush, and Sanders look the best astrologically to me.

Though my astrological formula has done well in the past, keep in mind that we all vote and nothing is written in stone.

But for Cruz or someone else who does not fit into, by formula,  what is coming into our country and world does not make sense to me.

The New Moon in Aquarius brings with it on February 8- a Chinese New Year of the Monkey.  The monkey is considered a mentally agile symbol and great gains technologically make sense as a result this, as well as new ideas and inventions this coming year.

This year already has shown us that the recent transformational energies are now taking hold and becoming more real.

Yes the Presidential campaigns are showing us how the electorate wants change away from same-old doing business as usual.

The USA has been having its very central core broken down over the last couple of years as Uranus and Pluto have been making aspect to its Sun in Cancer.

The presidential elections show how the USA no longer knows who it is as its identity has been changing.  President Barack Hussein Obama has brought a whole new kind of president, outside the usual box of white anglo saxon protestant male.

And our detente with Cuba and Iran has changed our relationship to the world.  And our not blindly following Israel’s needs has also changed our relationship to them and the Muslim world.

The Middle East is so important to the world’s transformation into a New Age.

The Middle East is where most of our major religions and civilizations were born. It is where the transition between ages is brewing, where a New World will erupt from.

Will we in the USA continue the path President Obama represents and elect someone who continues to be on that track?

Or will we elect someone who sees America as better than the rest, and hates Muslims or others who they feel threaten the American way of life.

Will we bring in a president who will represent Diversity in Unity, equality for all;  or will we need to go back two dangerous steps before we go three steps forward later?

The presidential choices are more clear now than since the ’60s and ’70s.  Each of us must now reach for our “better angels” inside us.  Revenge, fear and hatred will take us into a dark tunnel of pain.  Love combined with Truth will take us to the best places, places aligned with the best of the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Cracking Open the Portal and Astrology Forecast March 1- 14.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 28, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Planetary movements in March and April signify the opening of a major portal into the Age of Aquarius.   Last year at this time, as we approached the Cardinal Grand Cross in April 2014, another major portal was beginning to open.

As these portals open, the energetic atmosphere intensifies.    New frequencies of light, love, and truth are wanting to enter collective and individual consciousness, in order to help us evolve in alignment with the soul intentions for the Age of Aquarius.

Of course there are blocks in the way of receiving this love and truth- blocks from old conditioning; blocks from attachments to familiar ways that feel safe and secure; blocks from old traumas and wounds; blocks from a resistance to letting go of our ego’s need to control; blocks from attitudes and beliefs ingrained in our minds and hearts from the old paradigm.

Just as with individuals, these blocks fight against the influx of these new energies and hence can cause dis-ease,  conflict, upheaval, and challenges to the potential gracefulness of the process.

So it is best as this portal opens to stay present and aware, to look at your self and life from a more detached perspective, with spiritual lens and deeper soul connection.

Meditation; being in nature; spiritual practices; being aware of the Universe’s signs, symbols and synchronicities; and just generally staying aware beyond our more mundane agendas are ways to stay connected as energies intensify and world events gain in importance.

This coming week March 1-7 may bring some early winds of change prior to the coming storms of change as Venus in Aries triggers the Uranus/Pluto square; but I believe the real intensity of these winds will not be felt by most until the week of March 8-14.  That is when Mars triggers the Uranus/Pluto square just days before the actual exact square on March 16.

That will be followed by a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on the day of the Spring Equinox on March 20 and then by a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra on April 4.

That will be followed by Jupiter going Direct on April 8; and then by the spark of the ignition turning for more outer directed changes on April 18.

Deep transformational movement as the portal opens will mainly occur between March 8 and April 18.

Then what results from all this transformation will be sparked after April 18.

I not be writing on my usual day next week Saturday March 7.   I will be celebrating my March 6 birthday while on vacation in the the Southwest USA.

Therefore my next post after this one will be on March 14.  And I am scheduled to create a new YouTube video for this great portal opening on March 12, to be posted on March 14 also.

This coming week March 1-7 has some spark to it from a Jupiter/Uranus trine on Tuesday March 3 and with Venus in Aries triggering the Uranus/Pluto square on March 4.

The Jupiter/Uranus trine also triggers the Uranus/Pluto square and it will tend to bring enlightenment and inspiration.  It should bring issues in the world that help us to see from a broader perspective, outside the usual mental boxes

Netanyahu, the leader of Israel, will be speaking to the American Congress on or around the 3rd, and that talk will break open into collective awareness the issues that are so important to resolving the nuclear issue with Iran.

Netanyahu went behind President Obama’s back to set up this meeting, outside normal protocol.

President Obama is trying to find a peaceful resolution in regards to Iran, a resolution that to his way of thinking would make the Middle Easy safer and maybe ultimately set up a foundation for settling the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and the ISIS threats.

Prime Minister Netanyahu does not believe Iran is sincere in its efforts to stop its supposed path to a nuclear bomb and instead wants more pressure put on Iran including the threat of war.

This is a most important world issue in the transition into an Age of Aquarius.   Some of the first seeds for world civilization and major world religions were planted in the Middle East.

What happens there during these several years of transition is most important.

And as this portal opens up this late winter and spring, what happens with Iran and Israel will greatly determine the amount of pain our human family will suffer as the wheel turns into a new age.

Of course other early civilizations and religions were in China and India.  And what happens in those parts of the world now will also greatly influence the portal opening now and the transition into a new age.

India and China and surrounding regions are having growing pains and there are old resentments there between those two countries and other countries in Asia.  North Korea holds a special key to the potential for a world of Diversity in Unity, as right now it is so isolated from the rest of the world, even as it hold nuclear weapons.

We are at a huge turning point as this major portal opens.  We are each important in how the tide turns, as we work with our deeper consciousness in transformation and evolution.

As we each evolve, so does our collective consciousness.

So Jupiter trine Uranus this coming week will help us to wake up and see greater truths.

Venus in Aries sparking the Uranus/Pluto square will bring shifts in our relationships, so we can better navigate the changes.

Who is in your heart now?   What are they bringing to your life?  Who is not in your heart now as you are growing and changing?  And what does that mean? Do you need to let them go or at least change the form of your relationship?  Of do you need to go through some relational and emotional work with them, so to bring back that connection?

The week of March 8-14 should bring much more intense winds of change, personal and global issues and events that wake us up even further to what is happening and where things are going.

This week will bring the forces that shake any fences of indecision we may still be sitting on.

Mars is forceful and focused, intent on moving things forward, in taking on any challenges with courage and integrity of self.  Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday that week should be the most intense and filled with events that open up issues and tend to make us act not just talk or ruminate.

And on Saturday the 14th of March Saturn changes direction from Direct to Retrograde.  In so doing, in the days surrounding this Saturn slowdown and shift, its energy and intent will be experienced.

Saturn is contracting energy, limiting possibilities, sometimes to the point of knowing fated events or at least a sense of “it is what it is”, nothing I can do about it except accept and make the best of it.

This Saturn turning point will bring us into the spell of Spring Eclipse Season 2015.  The last of seven exact Uranus/Pluto squares happens on the 16th, followed by the Solar Eclipse on Spring Equinox the 20th of March, then the Aries/Libra Lunar Eclipse on April 4.

World events including events that will be affecting the world economy and including natural Earthly and weather events will be more likely at this portal opening.

Those of you who have been bored, wanting more movement and change will be pleased for sure.

Talk with you again on March 14

Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon and Astrology Forecast April 13-19.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 12, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Here comes the first eclipse this spring:  This Tuesday April 15 at 3:42 AM EDT.  The night before, on Monday April 14, Pluto will be changing directions to add to the anticipated increased intensity.

Already many are feeling the effects.

Things are cracking open, parts of our selves, our emotions, or our relationships that have been on lock down are coming up to be experienced again.

If you are or will be feeling out of your normal balance; feeling more emotional; getting more upset, anxious, stressed; and you are less able to keep a lid on issues; then it is a good time for breakthroughs and awakenings.

If you are able to talk about what is going on with your mate or a family member or friend or a counselor, you will soon see that you can get to the core or bottom of issues more easily. And from that place you will be more able to gain deeper awareness and insights, and more able to work through your issues.

This ability to go deeper, to see the core truths, and truly work through what has been bothering you will be greatly enhanced all month long.

This first eclipse on Tuesday April 15 is Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon.  In North America you will be able to see it, as it is in your path and it will happen while it is dark outside.

This will be a Full Moon in Aries/Libra, and because it is also an eclipse it has many times more energy, impact and importance than the usual Full Moon.

As it is an Aries/Libra Full Moon, relationships will be in the spotlight, relationships of all kinds.  There will be the necessity of balancing your need to be true to your self and do what is best for you, with truly listening empathically to the “other” and being in relationship with them.

Old issues may be coming up again and new issues may be coming alive. But remember that it is important to truly listen while holding onto your empowerment.

Another issue between Aries and Libra is between being frank, direct and straightforward (Aries); or saying what you want to say with more “sugar” on it.   Sometimes it is best to just say what you mean, the hard truth, so the other person wakes up.  Other times it is best to sugarcoat so the other person does not go on the defensive and then can truly listen to what you have to say.

Aries wants independence and Libra wants to make relationship; so another issue to work out may be around how you can balance those needs in your relationship.  If either or both of you are very independent and don’t try to get close, then your relationship will eventually die. If either or both of you are close all the time without much space or freedom from one another, then you will get co-dependent and build a resentment because you will lose touch with your self.

If any of these issues come up for you now, please know that there is the opportunity to work on them.  Of course there is always the chance that you will find you are not compatible, but there is also the chance you will transform your relationship to a healthier one as you break through old and stuck patterns.

Keep in mind that the intense energies of change will stay alive all month long as the Grand Cross is building its energy and will reach its climax of influence from April 19-23.  And then the 2nd eclipse will occur on April 29. It will be Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus.

So let your self take the ride of these important and powerful planetary aspects.  So much is ready to break open and break through so you can move forward in your life into a new chapter or season.

If you get glimpses or memories now of times gone by, it is because this transition into your new season of life is a big one.  There may be some grief or sorrow attendant to the shifts, and the grieving is in part meant to help you release the past.

Holding on will only cause you pain, and is against nature.  Your soul and body are a part of nature and they know when you need to move on.  Trust their wisdom now, and move forward.   What you think makes you feel safe is in reality just a security blanket of what is familiar to you.

Once you let go of the shore in your mind and heart, you will be taken down the river of your soul’s path, taken to where you are ready to go.

For many this month will be one of big doors opening into new vistas, and new adventures, and a liberation from what has held you back.

In the greater world you can see things breaking down with more tragedies, natural disasters, and war cries. More and more people are becoming aware that the foundation holding the markets and economy is cracking.

The last time there was a Cardinal Grand Cross that held Uranus square Pluto within it, and in the same month there were eclipses was in September 1931. In fact the last time Uranus squared Pluto, as is now happening from 2012-2015,  was in the ’30s.

We all know what was going on then: The Great Depression.    So we are coming Full Circle on that event as can be seen astrologically.  What will that mean over the next couple of years?  It could mean a collapse of the old economy and markets and a powerful transformation into a new way of doing business on the Earth: one that is more just and equitable and less run by ruthless competition and greed.

And whatever happens with Russia, China, Iran, Egypt, Israel, Palestine, etc, even potentially in the form of great conflicts, is happening because the power balance is shifting to one of more equality, and into Diversity in Unity.

The USA natal Sun will be almost exactly in aspect to the Grand Cross from April 19-23.   So potentially important events and challenges are coming to America. If they do not all happen during April, April’s Grand Cross will set the table for when future triggering planetary events happen over the next 18 months.

This coming autumn and next spring’s eclipses ignite the same cardinal degrees of the zodiac and reignite the USA natal Sun position as well as its natal Saturn position.

That means that whatever events happen concerning the USA this Spring, they will just be the beginning of its immense transformation.   We will need to re-member what values and principles are at the heart of this nation, and release the decay that has been growing within its soul.

We will need to join the world community in a new way as an equal member who respects the rights of others for liberty and self determination, equality, dignity and self respect.

And in our own home we will need to stop the childish bickering between parties, the back biting and the priority of self gain. We need to think less of winning and greed and more about doing what is best for our American and world communities, for the Earth and our collective human family.

There will be breakdowns and breakthroughs now in our individual lives and in our world.

You can already see what some of our new chapter here in America is looking like just by seeing what is happening in late night TV.  The older generation of late night talk hosts is leaving with the retirement of Jay Leno and David Letterman.

This is a microcosm of what is happening in our world in this new chapter:  A new generation is rising and will bring new voices to our country and world.

Jimmy Fallon and especially Steven Colbert represent a new voice wanting to be heard in our land.  It is true they will be on mainstream, corporate owned TV, and that severely limits creative freedom, but still it is change and hopefully voices and messages outside the old boxes and patterns.

So see in your own life how this new chapter is affecting you.  What needs to be released and what needs to be born in your life?  Take the ride this month and keep your mind and heart open so you can be in alignment with your self and the Universe.  We are moving faster into the Age of Aquarius now.

See you next week,
