Awakening with a New View, and Astrology Forecast May 26- June 1

The third and last eclipse of Spring Eclipse Season 2013, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius, is passing now.  The intensity of the eclipses is ready to subside soon, as we also enter the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus on May 9.

Soon it will be time to survey the land of your life, so you can better take stock of where everything landed during this passing storm.

For some these last several weeks, since the New Moon in Aries on April 10,  have been a whirlwind ride.  Much has shifted and changed, so the next couple of weeks will be good for assessing where you are at now in your attitudes, beliefs, and expectations for your life.

Soon, around the New Moon in Gemini on June 8, it will be time to get on your horse and ride forward.  Everything may not be totally known and clear yet, but the energies will take us forward, ready or not.  That New Moon will put a bookend on Spring Eclipse Season 2013, but the repercussions of those eclipses will last for a long time.  The transformational atmosphere has been radically shifted, which for many means their life has changed in a big way over the last couple of months.

But for now, resist the temptation of leaping to conclusions too fast.  Let the next couple of weeks pass first before making any big judgments as to what happened and why.

Whenever there are quite intense planetary alignments, as there have been the last several weeks with the eclipses and Uranus square Pluto, it takes time to process and review before knowing the full impact of what has just happened.

Sometimes, however, the dye has been cast, direction for our life has been noted, and you are merely waiting for when the gun sounds to move fully forward.

In the greater world much has happened over the last several weeks.   The Eclipse Season began with a roar, as there was a horrible bombing at the Boston Marathon.   There have been other quite explosive events, like a fire and explosion at a fertilizer plant in Texas, a collapsed factory in Bangladesh that killed over a thousand people, several volcano eruptions, and a huge and devastating tornado in Oklahoma.

There have been several scandals surrounding the Obama administration, an unbelievable new power given to Monsanto, and the Middle East being on the verge of World War.

Most concerning is what is happening in Syria.    There are so many countries and peoples invested in how that turns out:  USA, Israel, Lebanon,Russia, Iran, Jordan, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and others.

Muslims have become the new designated enemy throughout much of America and the Western World.  And the Western World and America are now considered enemies to many of those Muslim peoples, especially so because of the perceived prejudice shown against Palestine and Muslim countries by America , and the favor shown  toward Israel.

I watched the movie “42” recently and remembered how blacks were the hated enemies back when they were not allowed to even drink from the same water fountains as whites.   Jews and Italians were enemies before that, gays have been hated by many forever but apparently now not as much, Russia was a big enemy during the Cold War.  Then when their empire fell and they were no longer so feared, it did not take long before Muslims became enemy #1, especially so after 9-11.

Is this the normal way for humans to act, always needing an enemy or someone to hate?  Sure has been for thousands of years. In my estimation, if we do not change this desire toward enemy creation, we will destroy our world.  Weapons of Mass Destruction in a world where we are all so close now through mass transportation, communication, and commerce, spells disaster if we do not learn to accept one another as brothers and sisters on this planet.

The Aquarian Age is Diversity in Unity, and we will get there together, knowing we are all members of the same family.  But know that the next few years will bring some very difficult challenges on our way to a better day.

Watch closely the next two New Moons on June 8 and July 8, and the time in between, for conflict to break out in the Middle East, especially so as that time period also includes powerful aspects to the USA and Israeli natal Mars placements- Mars the traditional god of war.

It is true that there are movements led by Secretary of State Kerry to build a peace conference for Syria and a new peace track for Israel/Palestine relations.   This is a last ditch effort to avert a full blown war in the region. We can hope and pray that effort is a true effort to find peace, a peace made through respect and honoring of all parties concerned. No other kind of peace will last long.

In your personal life you are in the process of awakening to new ways, and of your path getting cleared of all the old programmed patterns, beliefs and attitudes that have kept you stuck in old ways.

You know that your consciousness is transforming, that any disillusions you have recently experienced are the Universe’s way of bringing you to Truth, which is necessary for living an authentic life.

You know that your heartbreaks are ultimately breakthroughs into deeper healing, and a grieving and releasing of old wounds, abuses, and ego dramas.  Living from love, not fear is a natural result of releasing old toxic relationship patterns.

Many of those fear-based relationship patterns came from a lack of trust in others.  As you release and heal, you will attract to your self healthier relationships, ones built from a platform of self love and self respect.

As you build that foundation, you are also seeing people and the world from a new lens, a lens that can visualize a better world, one built on Love and Truth and mutual respect.

As more and more people see from these new viewpoints, we collectively end an old world of fear, illusion, and mistrust.

We come together to build our Aquarian Age.

Much love to you all.

See you next week,

Kaleidoscope Consciousness and Astrology Forecast May 19-25

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 18, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

A kaleidoscope of shifting consciousness is upon us.  Be present for the shift as much as you can, as there are plenty of nuggets of information and changes in awareness coming our way.

Within this shift there is a losing trust in government and the established world,  ’60s revolutionary drumbeats, as we enter a powerful week of planetary action.

Uranus square Pluto is exact on Monday May 20. Of course we know this aspect of 2012-2015 is the first major meeting of Uranus and Pluto since they were conjunct in 1965-66, which set off the huge wave of revolution and evolution in the ’60s and ’70s.

If you are zoned out on your computer or video games, in any way in your own personal bubble of protection, sleepwalking through your life, you will miss the magic and mystery swirling through our lives.

This coming week brings the Universe’s can openers popping open our minds, so we will open up any closed down belief systems or attitudes.

Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal, no more life in that duality belief system.  Both Big Corporate and Big Government are corrupt and vie with each other for dominance over our minds, hearts, and souls.

There is always an interaction, on this rung of consciousness in Earth reality, between freedom and gravity.   Gravity keeps us here in Earth reality to do what we came here to do.  Freedom allows us to find our own way, guided by our souls and the Universe.

But governments, corporations, dictators, kings and queens from the past have convinced us they control the force of gravity.  And as such they have set up a dominance over our minds, hearts, and souls.  They seek to keep us in their hold by programming us with rules, regulations, and guilt that defines beliefs and attitudes.  Our loyalties are to states or families or churches that seek to tell us who we are, who we should be, and what we need to believe.

But now walls are coming down, and will come down faster and faster.   Fear not, the world is not ending, but the world as you know it is.

These walls are mainly in your consciousness, that is where the transformation seeks to bring in new light.

President Obama, when he spoke before being first elected as President, sounded like Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln all rolled up into one.  For me personally, he was Abraham Lincoln reincarnated.  But who is he now?

If Lincoln, he has been dropped into the modern era in America, no longer a country fighting to be whole and connected to its founding values of “liberty and justice for all”.

Now America is an Empire, dominated by( as President Eisenhower called it), the “Military Industrial Complex”, something he said would usurp our liberty and American values, and take the power away from the people.

Obama no longer is that shining light of inspiration, whoever his soul truly represents.    He is part of our disillusion now, motivating us to look beyond the saviors of the Pisces Age, and to find our redemption in ourselves, in “we the people”.

You can expect events to occur in the world now that will help us to let go of any beliefs and attitudes that keep us holding on to our familiar security blankets.

More and more it is easy to see that the people who are running our world are not who we thought they were.  Did you know this past week President Putin of Russia told our American leaders that the bee population was becoming destroyed because of genetically modified seeds and the pesticides we are using?

You do know our government and President Obama allowed a bill to be passed, one that had a rider attached that allows for more power of Monsanto and  other corporations that produce GMOs?

There is more disillusion for our institutions as we learn about unfair practices of the IRS, the Justice Department intrusions of the AP, and a cover-up in Benghazi, Libya.

There is war heating up for Syria and Iran and maybe even North Korea, which would take our eyes off the ball of these scandals.

Our world is transforming out of an old Pisces Age of over 2000 years and into an Age of Aquarius, establishing itself, in my estimation, after December 2020, when Jupiter will conjunct Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius.

Much turmoil, as there was in the 60s, much disillusion of our world establishment, will keep increasing and opening our minds and hearts to new ways.

We are in the process of being Awakened!   Do not be surprised if soon new events will totally blow our minds open and show us new realities.

The old world programming into us a certain Paradigm for Reality is breaking apart.    New world events will show us new possibilities for how our world began or what makes it run.    Nature or Nurture? is a limited belief system that does not allow for the fact that our souls are already “mature” when we are born, formed by past lives and other factors we do not completely understand.   Astrology, for instance, shows us we are a soul with varying energies and patterns when we take our first breath.

Evolution or Creationism is another limited concept that presents an obsolete battle between science and religion.   Neither is correct, there is another way to view our origins and development.

And how about the fact that we are trained to be so self-centered in our views of life in the Universe.   There is life in many places in this Universe, and soon we will know without doubt that this is true.   UFO’s and life from other realms of the Universe, from other dimensions in our consciousness, will be making some grand appearances before too long.  This by itself would change our programmed Paradigm by leaps and bounds, on a scale even greater than when we learned the world was round not flat.

This week brings a groundswell of planetary aspects for this Spring Eclipse Season 2013:

On Sunday the 19th Jupiter is conjunct the USA natal Mars from its birth date of July 4 1776.  Transiting Mars will follow at the end of June with another conjunction of the USA natal Mars.   During the time in between, the USA military might, its gun issues, and violent tendencies will be in the spotlight with powerful events occurring. Look for signs and synchronicities over the next couple of days as to what may be coming.

On Monday the 21st is the Uranus/Pluto square, this on the day the Sun moves out of Taurus and into Gemini.

The Sun in Taurus brought us into the physical, material side of life, and as a fixed Earth sign helped us to make things real and practical.  Now with the Sun moving into Gemini, our minds open up to the possibilities, as we take in new information, and vary our interests.

We are more mentally active, and may need to communicate and socialize more.

That Sun in Gemini will keep moving through Gemini until it gets to around 4 degrees of Gemini just after midnight, at 12:25 AM EDT on Saturday May 25.  At that time the Moon will be exactly opposite at around 4 degrees of Sagittarius.  This forms a Full Moon.  And since the Earth’s shadow will block the Sun’s light from the Moon, it is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse.

This is the last of the eclipses in this Spring Eclipse Season 2013, though the intensity and totality of the Eclipse Season will not be over for a few more weeks   This eclipse can be seen in America, but it is a penumbral eclipse, one not easily ascertained by the naked eye.

It will nevertheless still be strong in its effects, and will tend to open us up energetically, spiritually, and mentally. This is not an “uptight” eclipse, not one that will bring gut-wrenching emotions of deep intensity.

It should instead bring an opening of the faucets of information and inspiration.  The difficulty for some will in balancing the tide of information and feelings with finding solution, answers and meaning.

It may be easy to be confused or overwhelmed as Pandora’s box opens, and therefore a challenge to bring things together in a cohesive and clear wholeness.

Yet for others this will feel like open channels of information and inspiration, new revelations, new ideas, and great communication with others.

So this week ahead shifts the tides again, and brings us to more active and open energies.

Remember that overall what is most important is that our consciousness is changing, our lives are transforming.

It is most important to be present, to stay aware, to be in the moment as much as possible now.  The Universe and your inner light will show you the way, no matter what is going on around you.  So being aligned and centered will do that for you.    Getting more serious about your meditative practice can only help now.

See you next week,

Spring Eclipse Season 2013 Continues, and Astrology Forecast may 12-18

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on May 11, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have a lot more to go before Spring Eclipse Season 2013 is over.  There is a third eclipse on May 24/25, a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Gemini/Sagittarius. There also is another exact pass of powerful and transformational Uranus square Pluto on May 20.

Many personal lives during this Eclipse Season have become very unsettled.  People have seen big red flags go up over various issues in their lives. Some have experienced threats to their usual ways of doing things, new doubts or breakdowns in their relationships, challenges over their security, jobs, or careers.

Some are seeing new possibilities now, breakthroughs out of old stuck places have given new hope.

So many know they are in transition in their lives, ending an old chapter, and moving into a new phase of life.

If something is not right in your life, if it is not aligned with the evolving YOU on your soul path, then it is ripe to be released.  Can you hold onto that which is not aligned for you? Sometimes yes, but perhaps that means you will not progress and evolve as you would like.  Security or change?   Which way to turn?

If what you are hanging onto for security no longer has any spirit or life in it anymore, then you know what price you have to pay to hold on.  Your soul will continue to die, your light will get more dim.

On the other hand, if the change will bring you to complete chaos in your life, with no practical way forward, then how can you go forward?

Perhaps the situation or relationship does not have to be let go.   Instead maybe old beliefs or dysfunctional patterns of behavior or communication can be transformed, so there is a rebirth and a relighting of the flame of spirit.

But if there is a need to truly let go of the relationship or job or home, then the best scenario, one that is usually what happens when change is right, is that you let go of that which has lost its light for you; and you make strong intention to the Universe and your self to make new possibilities work for you.

If what you are choosing is right for your evolving soul, then soon you will find the Universe and your own ingenuity bringing you the practical solutions you require. Maybe the new situation will not have everything you want, but will have enough of what you desire for you to take the leap of faith.

As you make your personal life changes during this Spring Eclipse Season, you are aligned with what is happening in the “heavens” too as the planetary aspects show us accelerating change.  Of course the greater world is also in the process of big change.

As you watch our dysfunctional government, as you watch our lives get more and more controlled by big money interests, as you watch people commit  abusive and violent acts on one another, as you see different religions and countries and peoples filled with such venom for one another, as you witness more and more people escaping into their own personal bubbles of drugs or alcohol or electronics, etc.;  the proof that our world is ripe for powerful transformation is all around us.

The Eclipse Season began at the New Moon in Aries on April 10.  5 days later there was the Boston Marathon bombing.    On April 25, on the first actual eclipse, the Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, it was announced that there was proof that Syria had used chemical weapons.  That was important as President Obama had previously stated that if Syria used chemical weapons it would be a “game-changer”, meaning the USA would then need to get more deeply involved in the crisis.

That has not happened yet; but then last week, just 4 days before the next eclipse, a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus, Israel most dangerously dropped bombs just outside Damascus Syria, invading that sovereign country for what it determined were for its security needs.

This country of Syria has become a crucible for the future state of the Middle East and the world.  The planetary aspects from now till mid July promise powerful events surrounding Syria, events which could destabilize the Middle East region and the world.   Transiting Jupiter conjuncts the natal USA Mars in late May and is followed by transiting Mars conjunct that same spot in the zodiac, at the USA Mars of 21 degrees of Gemini,  at the end of June.  The USA becoming involved in some kind of a military adventure or action is likely soon.

The Military/Economic Empire that dominates this world is in a quandary about Syria.   A full blown war will destabilize the world, and cause havoc to the world economy, something they would hate to happen.  But they also see an opportunity to gain control of a crucial spot of the world.  If they gained control of Syria, then they would have a stronger foothold in the much coveted Middle East, and they would weaken the strength of Iran, seen as a threat to the Military/Economic Empire.

But Syria is a really complicated problem, as the so-called rebel faction fighting the government of Syria is made up to a large degree by AlQueda and other fundamentalist Muslim forces. This is a complicated civil war going on in Syria.

And countries Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan, Iran, Lebanon and others have stakes in the outcome of this conflict.  So any match lit there could bring great fires of conflict, which would disrupt the global economy and oil markets.  Pandora’s box would open and nothing would be easily solved.

So world powers do not know what to do.  If Israel bombs Syria one more time, however, then for sure Syria will retaliate. Many other possibilities could also bring conflict.   A major world conference to solve this Syrian problem is also in the works.

The transformation of the Middle East is inevitable as part of the changing power structure of our world.  It is where most of our world’s major religions were born and where many of our first civilizations were created.  What happens there will clear out much of the negatively violent old paradigm rules for living on the Earth. That paradigm includes much fear and mistrust for another; intolerance for those who are different or believe differently; a sense that some people or races or religions are superior to others.

For us to create a world of equality, of fairness and caring, one whose foundations are built on Love and Truth, we need to clear out and release the old world’s dysfunctions and toxicity.

So you can expect over the next few years and especially over the next year or two, much turmoil and chaos in the greater world.  For the Military/Economic structure of our world to transform so all the peoples of this world are served, not just those with money and privilege;  you can imagine how much disruption of the status quo must happen.

But this also means that people are waking up all over the world.  And it will take “we the people” of this world to truly heal the world and transform it.  And we do that by healing and transforming our own self  first.    As you honor your authentic self and then naturally honor everyone else’s authentic self, you are by the law of attraction helping to build our Aquarian Age, an age of Love and Truth, an age of Diversity in Unity, an age whose time has come, and will arrive more fully in 2020-21.

As the old world burns out, we are each an integral part of a new creation on this Earth, and Age of Aquarius.  We are each cleaning out our old programming, our wounds and toxins. We are opening to the collective Soul Source, to our own individual light, to the Love and Truth that keeps the wheels of the Universe turning.   There is no stopping this train of evolution.

Keep your seat belt on this Eclipse Season and ride the changes with trust and faith.

See you next week,

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

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See you next week,

Aftermath and Astrology Forecast for June 10-16

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on June 9, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The intensity of the eclipse storms has subsided.  We are in a new zone of reality and consciousness, looking around and getting used to the new landscapes.  The Old Rules from an old paradigm are leaving, New Rules in a New Paradigm not yet established.

Don’t expect life to move fast forward yet. You still need time to center your self, get clear, and get used to your new surroundings.

Many were taken out of their comfort zones as their lives, perceptions, and viewpoints have been shaken up or at least altered.

Some are truly ready to enter a new chapter of their lives. Others need more clarity first, as the spring eclipse shakeups have taken them out of what they had been expecting.

More changes are coming, changes that will result from the shakeups of the eclipse season. Events that are an outgrowth of the recent shakeups will open up this summer and autumn.

But for now you can get clear, stabilize your self, and get prepared for a new chapter of your life.

June 19- June 27 is the turning point time period.  June 19 is a New Moon in Gemini; June 20-21 is the Summer Solstice; June 24 is the first pass of powerful Uranus square Pluto; June 25 is Saturn going Direct; and June 27 is Venus going Direct.

That is the transition time period.  All Systems are Go after that, ready or not.

The Uranus square Pluto aspect on June 24 is the first of 7 passes. Those seven passes take us into mid 2015.  This is an extremely powerful aspect for changing the world.  The last major aspect between Uranus and Pluto was their conjunction in Virgo in 1965-66, when they began their new cycle together, a cycle that lasts approximately 165 years.

At the conjunction in 1965-66 the Viet Nam War was beginning as was the Civil Rights Movement.  The Uranus Pluto conjunction of 1965-66 showed us into the ’60s and ’70s Revolution.   Society was being shaken at its core.  The System we were used to serving was breaking down. It did not totally break down, but it transformed in a major way, as Women’s Rights, rights for African Americans, ending an unjust war, kicking out a corrupt President, changing styles and roles for men and women, sexual liberation, consciousness expansion, and new spiritual and metaphysical viewpoints all happened.

The Age of Aquarius was talked about and sung about, but in the ’80s, with the Reagan Revolution, life began to stabilize and evolution and revolution seemed to stop. Soon after, the American Superpower and Empire was built, especially so after the Soviet Union broke down.

Nevertheless, during these Empire years a technological revolution has been built and the movement to prepare for the New Age has grown.

And now as we move through the long anticipated 2012, and Uranus/Pluto begin their evolutionary/revolutionary dance together again, we are ready for major transformation again.

And this time many expect the Old Paradigm and System, society as we know it, to not be able to integrate the changes, but instead to break down totally. Others expect it to be like last time, when we end up integrating what is shaking up again.

The movement for Equal Rights, Fairness and Justice for Gays and Lesbians is getting powerful. Nothing will stop this wave of change.  But many are outraged, see this as a straying from the religious rules, and will put up a grave fight.  This fight is part of greater conflict and maybe civil war between cultural viewpoints, and more so a desire to stop our natural evolution into an Aquarian Age of Liberation, Equality, and Diversity in Unity.

Our economy also has been tranforming, starting in 2008 with the bank failures, mortgage disasters, and job losses.  And now as Europe is financially imploding and the USA is not finding its way back to its “normal” economy again, much more transformation is on the way.

In the Middle East, where oil and Israel are the Western World’s top priority, much unrest is building. Syria and Iran are in the crosshairs of Western sights.  We are on the verge of major conflict breaking out there.

In April 2014, Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn will square one another and be making almost exact aspect to the USA Sun in Cancer.

In the months surrounding ths date, the USA will face major crisis.  In succeeding weekly forecasts I will loook more closely at this impending crisis.

For now, watch what is happening with the Middle East, with the economy, and with the Culture Conflicts to see where the USA is headed.  The Presidential Election this year will bring out many of these issues, and culture wars will get much more intense and nasty. I will look more closely at the contest between President Obama and Mitt Romney in futures installments of Perspectives from the Sky.

In your own life, keep concentration and focus on your own personal evolution and your contribution to those around you and the world community you live within.

As you heal your past wounds and traumas, transform beyond the cultural and familial conditioning of the Old Paradigm and Age, and embrace your Authentic Self and true Soul Path, you are doing just what you need to do.

This growing personal alignment with the Universe and your Soul will take you just where you need to be and when you need to be there. Do not let fear of what might or could happen impair your spiritual vision.  All happens meaningfully on this sacred Earth and Universe. Everything unfolds just as it should if you are centered and aligned and watching for the signs and symbols and synchronicities.

It is true that sometimes your old wounds will color your heart’s ability to know. So at those times of doubt, seek help from objective spiritual guides or dig deeper in your heart or use your mind to balance your view.

This coming week we enter the 4th quarter Moon in Pisces Monday, so we are definitely coming down off the high of the Eclipses and Venus Passage, winding down until the Gemini New Moon on June 19, which begins the turning point time period that lasts until the end of June.

So as we said before, dust your self off, get realigned, and prepare to move forward soon.

Though this coming week is a “coming down” in many ways, that is somewhat challenged by the movement of Jupiter into Gemini Monday the 11th, where it will stay for a year. July 2000 until July 2001 was the last time Jupiter was in Gemini.

Mental activity, new ideas, increased communication and social activity will rule.   Over the next year take some new classes or learn something new, begin new communication activities, join social networks,  and let your mind and crown chakra open up more to new ways of thinking and taking in information.  Gemini is ruled by Mercury the Messenger of the Gods,  so keep open to what spirit has to say to you.

Remember that we have all entered a “new zone” now, so it is OK to feel out of balance or confused or just feeling kind of weird.

And remember that Venus is still retrograde until June 27, so we are experiencing changes in our relationships and relationship patterns.  Old relationships may return in some form, and new relationships can be looked at in new ways.  this applies to all relationships, friends, family, work, or romantic.

Keep knowing that All is moving just right, and you are moving into perfect alignment.

See you next week,

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon and Venus Passage and Astrology Forecast June 3-9

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 2, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

We are in a most important and powerful time period.

A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius is this Monday June 4 at 7:12 AM EDT.  This Eclipse makes an intense T-square with Mars in Virgo, and on the same day Neptune changes directions- going from Direct to Retrograde.   A rare Venus Passage is on June 5.  While Venus is Retrograde it passes between Earth and the Sun.

Things are shaking up now.   It is wise to let go of any rigid agendas.  The Full Moon Eclipse, Neptune, and a prominent Venus all suggest giving up the controls of left brain order and logic.   The less rational side of life is more powerful now.   The chaotic creative aspect is more powerful.

This does not mean you need to worry about what is going to happen. It does mean it is important to trust the process, trust the flow of Universal cycles to bring you and all of us to just where we need to be now.

In the process there may be glitches to what we have planned, disruptions to our “normal” habits and ways of being.

In the bigger picture we are moving out of of of an old Paradigm and programmed way of thinking and living our lives.  This changing of the picture of how to live life has been happening for awhile. Yet each time there is a big planetary shift as there is now, the shifting tides get stronger and our old programs get weaker.

The old economic paradigm, which sold us all on the idea that our homes would always be a good investment that would always bring monetary profit, turned out to not be true.  In so many cases people have lost value on their homes.

And now we are apparently entering another wake-up call in our economy as we find out that there is no real recovery from the recent economic downturn.    Europe is on the edge of disaster, China and other recently big growth economies are slowing down appreciably.  The USA job market has slowed again.     We are on the verge of a huge economic and world transformation, as we transition more rapidly now from an old Pisces Age to a new Aquarian Age.

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon at 14+ degrees of Gemini and Sagittarius is square Mars in Virgo.  This combination gives an emphasis on sorting through information, communications and events, trying to make sense or find clarity and solutions and meaning.   Clarity may be illusive.

It is best now to let things go wand stop trying so hard. You do not need to know right away and you do not need to control so much.  The way you have usually perceived your reality is changing now.

It is time for new ideas, new viewpoints, opening your mind and heart to other ways of perceiving, outside your usual boxes.

This current Venus Passage actually began in June of 2004, when Venus then passed between Earth and the Sun.  This Passage now is the completion of the cycle.  So Venus, the Goddess of Love, who is retrograde as it alway is during a Venus Passage, is in the spotlight of our lives now. The last one was in 1874/1882.

It is time to trust the heart more, to trust its wisdom and intelligence which is often in our conventional world not respected as highly as the mind.

“The heart has a mind of its own”, so to speak,  and understands connections in way that the brain never could. Everything cannot be “figured out” logically, there is a mystery of life that our mind can never comprehend in its usual ways.

The heart is a pathway to our souls and to the soul of nature and life.    There is a web of connection for people, from past lives, from alternative realities, that we cannot truly grasp with our minds alone.

This Heart teaches us to trust the unknown, to believe in something we cannot measure and delineate.

This Heart of life is Love, a knowing that all is connected and there is nothing to fear.  The right people at the right time in the right place will come your way.  And sometimes it is time to let someone go, to let the Universe in its loving arms carry them away.

Love lets go and love embraces, each in its own time.

So now with a Full Moon in Eclipse, which gives the Full Moon so much more strength; and mysterious and flowing Neptune changing directions; and a Venus retrograde Passage, let go of your controls and trust.

Your relationships now will be shifting also, as Venus rules heart issues. Relationships of all kinds are ready to wake up to new ways, new patterns.  The old ways that are not working want to break down, so breakthroughs can happen.

And not just with relationship.  Breakthroughs are ready for you in other ways also.   Your mind may find it difficult now with your usual thinking and communication.  And in that difficulty new ideas and perspectives may erupt in your consciousness. New inspirations may appear.

In the greater world dramas, everything is shaking up in a big way. The Powers that Be need to convince us that nothing ever really changes. If the economy is low it always bounces back they say.  The dollar is the main currency of the world, it is assumed. The western world is the great power of the world.  What you hear on the TV is the voice of reality.

This reality that is imposed on you is breaking up rapidly.  The Arab Spring has brought a new season to Egypt and the Middle East, but the old powers are refusing to budge.     This is true all over the world. The old powers refuse to budge and refuse to let in the waves of change into a New Paradigm and Age.

But their damns of resistance are showing huge cracks and holes, and steams of new consciousness and ways of being are gushing through.   Syria and Iran represent cracks in the damn that the Powers are anxiously tring to close.   This is all coming rapidly to a breaking point and war will soon spread out all over the Middle East and seep into all our lives.

This conflict and the breakdown of the old economy usher in the New Age.   Culture Wars in the USA will break out as this happens.  Liberal Power bases and Conservative Power bases will be in greater conflict.  Remember that both are run by special interests and big money.

It is best to stay out of the conflict and to remember that the New World is about the new connections, the web of connection, about that which unites us all as one family. In the new world we are looking to heal and transform and bring together.  Some people will not respond to that, and you need to not engage with them.

Unity does not mean that everyone will wake up all at once and sing Kumbaya together.  It means that each, in his or her own time, will hear the trumpet of awakening into the new consciousness and living.   And it is best to find those “birds of a feather” now to connect with.

Resist the temptation to convince others of the way you have found. Only those whose minds and hearts have opened to the new lights, even if ever so slightly, will respond favorably to you and what you are speaking.  The others will just bring you down with their skepticism and closed hearts.

So open your own mind and heart now to the powerful plantary movement. You are ready to evolve to another level. Let go of what in your mind, heart and consciousness needs to go. Release. Do not hold on tightly to that which is ready to go, no matter how familiar and secure it may feel.

We are all being asked to trust more, to let go of limiting fears, and to  move forward with our lives.

See you next week,

In Between the Eclipses and Astrology Forecast for May 27-June 2

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on May 26, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The eclipse season is up and running now, as we are past the first eclipse and this Monday May 28 we will be half way to the second one, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on June 4.

Each time we move through powerful planetary movements, as we are now in the late spring 2012; another big chink is made in the armor of the Old Paradigm’s world.

Events bring to the surface issues that need to be addressed, issues that reflect our collective need to transform toxic patterns and beliefs that do not serve us anymore.

In the greater world, Iran is being singled out as a threat to the Old Paradigm’s control. There was a meeting on May 23 this past week to resolve the outstanding Iranian nuclear issues, with no sign of a breakthrough.     There is a new meeting scheduled for June 18-19. Remenber that eclipse seasons usually give us breakdowns or breakthroughs, so soon we will know which way that goes.  World oil prices, the global economy, and geopolitical military issues are at stake.

In the global economy, news out this past week shows potential big trouble in Greece with its continuation in the European Union. If they leave, that will greatly affect the global economy.

In Egypt, which was a powerful player in the Arab Spring liberation movement in 2011, they had their first real democratic presidential election ever this past week.  Results are still not final, but it looks as if one of the Old Guard’s leaders will be in a runoff election on June 16-17 with the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate. Egypt and much of the world will be greatly affected by the results.  If the Old Guard Leader wins, revolution will break out again in Egypt.  If the Muslim Brotherhood candidate wins, an Islamic world domination of the Middle East will occur, which will move Egypt away from the western world powers’ control. Israel will be greatly affected also.

So that Perfect Storm we suggested would build in the Eclipse Season is truly building. How strong it gets remains to be seen.

We wrote to you also in earlier posts that June 19 to June 28 would be the time frame for the end of the Eclipse Season and the beginning of a new chapter in all of our lives would follow that time period.

I believe then we will have much better knowledge of Iran, the global economy, the Middle East, and the big shift of our world from an old Pisces Age and Paradigm to a New Aquarian Age Paradigm.

In your own life whatever has been shaking up and getting your notice, will continue to develop and want to work itself out soon.

Next week will be the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius and some form or feeling of revelation or culmination will unfold.  Recent information or messages or signs will be challenged to find resolution or meaning or inspiration.    Spirits will be raised higher, seeking new projects or adventures to be starting soon.

But first, this coming week we meet the half way point between the two eclipses, a beginning second quarter Moon in Virgo this Monday May 28.  With the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Virgo, energies will centered in our minds and nervous systems.  There will be a tendency to want to “figure it all out” and some will need to resist the pull into obsessive compulsive thinking and high anxiety.

Do your best to “let it go” and be patient.   Overall we need to trust more and more the process, and not jump to conclusions too fast.

Many people may be feeling quite differently in their bodies now in thisw eclipse season, but resist the temptation to pathologize and find something wrong with your self. Sometimes these new energies are trying to move through us and they find resistance in our bodies.   Later these energies will pass and so will whatever bodily ailment that has developed. These are times to release, not hold.

So let go and release what needs to be released, so new and healthier states  and patterns can be formed.

Remember also that Venus will remain retrograde until June 27, so relationships issues are in the spotlight, relationships of all types, not only romantic ones.

People from the past and issues and patterns from the past may return. Do not let your self believe that all your progress was in vain.  Sometimes we need to revisit old ways and people to compare and to further release where we have been in previous cycles and seasons of our lives.

You are best not to return to the old relationship or old ways that you used to relate.  There is a need to trust the Universe, life and your self, to bring to you what is best for you and your soul.  It is not always the script we have convinced ourselves is best for us. It is not usually the script our family or society has programmed us to believe is best for us.

The nuclear family dominance is fading from our lives and for many is already in the rear view mirror. New families and communities are and will be forming, ones that are not based solely on blood relations and simple biology.  Bio-genetics, stem cell research, many new ways to give birth, gay and lesbian families, adoptions, and safer birth controls are revolutionizing our world.

Great thrusts forward in technology and social networking are transforming our world community and are so in line and aligned with Aquarian principles.

One of our most pressing needs now is to integrate this technological revolution that has been tranforming our human community for over 20 years now, with healing our Earth and environment, and staying present, aware and grounded in our human psyches, emotions, and relationships.

We need also to learn more about how to use alternative energy, work better with climate change, connect more compassionately and  tolerantly with those who are different and have different lifestyles than us.

We have so much to do to transform our world to be aligned with the Aquarian Age energies and patterns that are straining to find doors and windows to move through into our consciousness and lives.

Use this eclipse season to transform your own life more aligned with the New Paradigm that is forming. Release your old mental tapes, heal the blocks and wounds to your heart, and come more deeply into your soul. Let your free mind awaken, liberate your spirit, and trust the waves of change to bring you to a more authentic and healthy life.    You are here for a reason on this Earth, living a life of meaning and purpose, connected to the Universe  and your human community.

See you next week,
