Shifting Realities and Astrology Forecast September 18-24

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week brings us winds shifting into a turning point.

Mercury has been Retrograde since August 3; on September 22 it goes back Direct again.

Also on September 22, Summer is ending at the Autumn Equinox at 10:21 AM EDT.

We have made it through 2 Eclipses this September, and now though the eclipses have passed us by, we still are in the waning energies of Eclipse Season.

As Eclipse Season begins to slow down, we flow right into the metaphorical sunset time of year: Autumn Equinox, the beginning also of Libra time of year.

Twice a year Light and Dark are equal:  Spring Equinox and Autumn Equinox.  At Spring Equinox, though yin and yang are equal, the turn is toward Yang and Light, with yin and darker days waning.

But at Autumn Equinox the reverse is true:  Light and Dark, Yin and Yang are equal; but Yin and darker days begin to grow.

So we begin to slow down and turn more inward.  We also begin to let go more of striving  and personal gain, and instead become more relationship oriented and appreciative of what we have.

As the light begins to dim, we become more grateful for the friends we have, more wanting to focus on relationship and inner values.

As this yin-ward movement begins, this year it is accompanied by Mercury going back Direct again. I know many will be quite relieved at that shift.

Clarity begins to appear, fogs lift to show us more clearly what direction we need to move in.

You may not get the full picture and feel comfortable to move forward yet however.

The New Moon in Libra on September 30 is a good marking point for greater clarity and movement forward.

But for this week enjoy the shift, allow the shift inside yourself.

Many, since Mercury went Retrograde, questioned their previous choices or beliefs, perceived in new ways, woke up to new ideas.

Some also have experienced a slide back to old times, to old friends and relationships in their minds, dreams or in the flesh.

We were reminded of how it used to be so we could see our current situations from a bigger or deeper perspective.

Sometimes we get so goal directed, or driven by a strict agenda, or so sure of our way of seeing things.  We need to be loosened up, to see other points of view. Mercury Retrograde can help us to do that.

And though Mercury Retrograde can be very difficult, it does help us to be more process oriented, and to open our minds and hearts to other viewpoints and feelings.

Now with the Autumn Equinox added to Mercury going back Direct again, and the last eclipse having passed; we can slow down and allow life to show us the way as things now unfold.

We have been learning that forced left brain obsession with finding the answers, has left us with more anxiety and less clarity.

Autumn Equinox lets us know that colder darker days are slowly moving in.  We know we need people more as a result.

The Sun moves into relationship oriented Libra at the Autumn Equinox.  Relationship means friends and family and romance, but it also means more awareness of social ways of perceiving and being.

Everything we do or say affects others, and though we may value pure and honest self expression; we often need to balance our frank expression with a sensitivity to how it makes others feel or how it will affect the state of our relationship.

Libra also seeks relationship in other ways.  It likes symmetry and beauty and how colors and shapes interact with one another. It is motivated by love.

It cares about balancing the scales of justice and seeing both sides of an argument.

In that process of seeing both sides it can be very indecisive and also can give up its own needs and individual self.  It can be so accomodating of others.

It also can be so caught up with how things appear or how they should be socially correct. In so being it can lose the deeper value of a situation or the honest expression.

Yet Libra stands for Connection, Fairness and Peace above all else.

As the disrupting energies of eclipses leave our consciousness and lives, we are ready to see what will take shape as a result.

There will be both world and personal events coming soon that will be a result of what has been shaken up during the eclipses.

The Presidential Election process will begin to clear up after Mercury goes back Direct.  In fact just a few days after Mercury goes back direct there is the first Presidential debate- I believe on September 26.

That debate should provide for those tuned in a real good sense of what direction the election process is moving toward.

In your personal life you could very well begin to feel soon as if you made it through a challenging time, progressed and grew, and now are ready for what will come your way.

The recent weeks have been a transformational challenge, pitting us up against some of our core issues.

You have released some of the emotional baggage and will feel lighter and more open to being your authentic self and receiving others as they are naturally.

We are all evolving in alignment with the changing energies, energies aligned with the Age of Aquarius we are moving into.

If you are sensing, seeing or feeling things that are not usually a part of what you call reality, you are not going crazy.

You are instead spiritually awakening to frequencies and realities that are beyond what we are taught to exist.

Entering into these worlds or being open to these entities will assist your evolution and your journey into the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, Mercury Direct, and Astrology Forecast November 25- December 1

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 24, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are entering an important week.   Mercury goes back Direct this Monday November 26 at 5:48 PM EST. That same day the Sun trines Uranus and Venus conjuncts Saturn in Scorpio.   The next day November 27 there is a quite intense Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn aspect, a meeting that triggers the powerfully transformational Uranus/Pluto square.

And then the next day November 28 we have the main entree’ of the week, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini at 9:46 AM EST.  That eclipse is the last one this Eclipse Season, and brings to fruition that which was begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio from November 13.  I am sure you remember how intense it was then, just after the Presidential Election, as a war in Gaza was igniting, the stock market was diving, and the Petraeus scandal was wide open.

This Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is the last full moon before the end of the Mayan Calendar on December 21, 2012.  We will have a much better sense by the end of this week of where we are headed in our personal lives and in the greater world prior to the calendar ending.

The Eclipse Season has been shaking things up, taking people out off their normal balance, and rearranging priorities and perspectives on deep levels of our souls.

We are being prepared for big changes in our world and in our personal lives.  An old chapter of our lives is ending, and for many the new chapter has not arrived, and perhaps not even been envisioned yet.

It can feel quite uncomfortable not knowing what is ahead, or quite stressful not knowing what to choose or what direction to move in.   But it would not be good to move or choose before it is time.  Wait for the signs and symbols and dreams and synchronicities.  Wait till your intuition feels solid.  Wait until your heart and mind are in agreement.

As Mercury goes direct this coming week, the fog should begin to lift.  Much more was shaken up than you even consciously know.  The windshield of your life will slowly clear up over the next couple of weeks.

But even as Mercury goes back direct Monday, more shakeups can be expected with another eclipse on the way Wednesday, and the Uranus/Pluto square being triggered by Mars.

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini will bring new information to light. One of the main themes of the eclipse is sorting out information, messages, and ideas (Gemini), and then finding understandings, solutions, and meaning (Sagittarius) from that input.  With Mercury just going direct,and with the power of the eclipse and other planetary aspects now, it is best not to jump to conclusions (Sagittarius) too fast.

Trust your intuition (Sagittarius), but check out the details and be objective (Gemini).  Lunar Eclipse Full Moons are exponentially more powerful than the usual Full Moon. So whatever you usually experience at a Full Moon will be much stronger this coming week.

Education, classes, reading, and many new interests being sparked are likely this week.  Communication projects and issues will also be in the spotlight, as well as the ignition of new ideas, and strong flashes of inspiration.

Energized discussions,  and greater need for communicating with others is likely.

Remember again that much is shaking up now, so there may be more chaos than usual and it could be more difficult to find order or sense to things.

You may have to wait to make big decisions, even though Mercury goes direct Monday.  Mercury stays slow for about a week, and all the powerful aspects this week may add to the confusion.

After this Full Moon, we may actually need to wait until the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 13 before we can truly get our bearings enough to be ready to go forward. And then 8 days later is the symbolic New Chapter of our collective lives beginning at the Mayan Calendar ending  on December 21- at the Winter Solstice.

This week, with all the major planetary happenings, begin to get a feel for what this New Chapter means for you.  Start imagining and making intention for what you are moving into, and begin to envision how you want our collective human story to evolve now.

It is time for major release of old toxins and blocks. Patterns that have not been working for you can be let go. Conditioning from society and family that controls your being your authentic soul self can be released.

As you release the outworn from your old self and life, you are more receptive to the new you and new life.

In the greater world, the war in Gaza has temporarily ended, but the deep seated issues in the Middle East are still brewing for more storms ahead.  This area of the Earth birthed Judaism, Christianity and Islam.  It is where most of our first major civilizations were born, like Sumeria, Babylonia, and Egypt.

Full Circle brings us back to these places in the Middle East as we end the Mayan Calendar, but even more pertinent in my estimation, shifting from a Pisces to an Aquarian Age.  This shift will happen during the Uranus/Pluto square through 2015 and then up to the Jupiter conjunction with Saturn in Aquarius in December of 2020:  The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

So the shifting of the balance of power in the Middle East and the liberation of the Palestinian people will be most important now. Israel, which was dropped into the Middle East, in the middle of Arab lands by UN mandate in 1948, was conceived by worldwide Zionism and western powers.

Israel had just suffered a horrible genocide by Nazis, losing millions of its people through mass slaughter. Now Israel, projecting their rage and fears to bear on the Palestinian people, is in need of a great healing so we can avoid more horrors in the Middle East.  If not we will likely have Middle East regional and perhaps worldwide conflict as a clearing entryway into a New Age.

Each of us is working on a deep level our own issues of victim/perpetrator.   Many go from being victims to then wanting to hurt others. Others stay only as victims, hurting themselves over and over again.  It is an important consciousness transformation for everyone to move beyond being either a victim or perpetrator. This is Pisces Age mentality. Pisces can be a sacrificial victim savior, who is perpetrated against by ruthless powers.  It is meaningful that the Pisces Age began around the time of the birth of Christ, over 2000 years ago.

It is time to let go of the martyr archetype as a prominent one for our human family.   We do no longer need saviors, instead we need collective community action to change the world. This is Aquarius.

Let us hope that Obama, who carries a Lincoln soul or at least archetype inside him, is not needed as a last martyr before we enter an Aquarian Age.  Hopefully, instead, we evolve sufficiently as a human family to not need this anymore.

So stop hurting others and having revenge because you have been hurt, and stop identifying  with being a victim and hurting your self or others.  As we each  let go of the perpetrator/victim mentality, we help clear the way for the Aquarian Age.

Be flexible, open minded and with open heart this week, but also make sure you put up the boundaries and stop signs when needed.

See you next week,

Storms of Change and Astrology Forecast October 28-November 3

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 27, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving forward this week into a quite intense beginning to Autumn Eclipse Season 2012. On Monday October 29 there is a Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus that is the last major lunation before the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on November 13. That will be the first of two eclipses in November, the second is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini on November 28.

So the winds of the Eclipse Season blow in this coming week, and here on the east coast USA it is literal as there is Hurricane Sandy blowing in with powerful winds and rain.  It is expected to arrive on the shores of eastern USA close to that Full Moon this Monday.

Metaphorically, as the east is where new daily Suns rise, this Hurricane brings with it to America, on the east coast where the Sun first rises here every day, the beginning of the Eclipse Season for the USA. So we can expect that eclipse season to be a powerful time here.

There is a Presidential Election on November 6, at the last quarter Moon in Scorpio/Leo.  On that same day Mercury changes to retrograde, bringing back shades of the 2000 Presidential Election between Bush and Gore.  That election night, Mercury was also changing directions, from retrograde to direct.  The day when Mercury changes directions, no matter which way it is shifting, is the craziest most confusing time in Mercury’s journey.

In 2000 there was extraordinary confusion about who won, and about voting irregularities.  This time polls show there will likely be a very close election again, and if so people will be screaming about vote fraud again. I am not sure how Election Night will play out this time, but expect some chaos and confusion.

But first we have this storm blowing in at the Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus on Monday October 29 at 3:49 PM EDT.  The invasive power of Scorpio confronts the fixed Earth of Taurus, quite perfect astrologically for this hurricane forcefully entering the eastern landmass of the USA.

Saturn will be conjunct the Sun, and Pluto will also be making aspect to this Full Moon, bringing more seriousness and depth of emotion and mind. And timed with the election shortly thereafter, and the eclipses shortly after that,  the winds of change will dramatically be shifting the affairs in the USA.

Whichever way the election turns, since the political parties now represent two very different cultures more that anything else, there will be much rage and negativity shown by the losing party.   We have been for some time now entrenched in a culture war here in the USA, and in recent years that war has gotten more and more intense.

Of course we know many crazies on the fringe of the “right” hate President Obama and have threatened his life, yet there were also stories recently about how crazies on the “left” have threatened to assassinate Romney if he becomes president.  These threats were all over Twitter last week.

There is reason to fear a kind of civil war here in America, especially if the economy gets much worse, as money issues often bring out the worst in people.  I have often thought that Obama is a reincarnation of President Lincoln, and of course our current lanky black President would be poetic justice if linked to the Civil War and the emancipation of the slaves.

We could conceivably have a new “civil war” in the USA, with the south now representing much of the republican party, versus the north and especially the northeast, which was most of northern USA in 1860, and is now overwhelmingly democrats.

If this is how things play out, then perhaps Obama (Lincoln) will be the one who wins this election and is called upon to heal the country again.

I still believe, by certain astrological factors I use, that Romney is  more likely to win; but the Universe is a mysterious place and “Lincoln” could be needed again.

If you are someone who has been getting outside the conventional world box, and transforming your consciousness toward more love and truth, healing of our Earth and human community, and alignment with an Aquarian Age, it will be best to not get in the fight between democrats and republicans. That fight is part of an old paradigm of separation.  Let it go and visualize and work for a New World.

So as this storm and full moon blow in, just a week before the election and Mercury Retrograde, and just two weeks before the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio, expect the unexpected.  But we can likely expect the nastiness of this election to get much worse; and we can likely expect the Middle East, especially around the Solar Eclipse to become even more explosive; and we can expect crazy happenings with the economy and stock market.

So batten down the hatches as the storm and full moon blow in.  And be careful in your interpersonal relationships to keep somewhat of a lid on your more negative emotions.    Scorpio can bring with it a stinger to push people’s emotional buttons and Taurus can be so stubborn and resistant. That combination can bring big fights;  and since we are talking Taurus and Scorpio, issues of money and possessions and how they are shared can be in the spotlight of our disagreements. “Tugs of War” can certainly erupt.

Keep in mind that at this Full Moon, and through much of November, that issues will be pushed to come to a head, that energies will be favorable for getting to the core of issues, especially ones that have been previously “pushed under the rug”.  It is a good time, and it will happen quite organically in most cases, to go deeper into what is bothering you or holding you back.  It is a good time this month to “hash it out”, to come to some kind of resolution or at least a clearing of the air.

You will then know better what is needed to be let go and released and what can instead be fixed or healed.  There will be endings, and passing through old “seasons” of your life; and there will be new births and renewals.

So much is changing now and for the next few years because of Uranus square Pluto and moving closer and closer to an Aquarian Age. And how about the Mayan Calendar ending on December 21, 2012?

Each planetary aspect or lunation or eclipse can take on so much more transformational significance or importance than usual now.   Keeping the status quo if it is not aligned with your authentic soul and its journey, will seem impossible sometimes.  It will sometimes feel like holding onto the edge of a cliff with the wind blowing.

All is coming to you in divine order, though sometimes at these crossroads it is up to you to decide which way to turn.  Do not trust your intellect at these times to lead the way. It is the connection between mind and heart  that helps, and an allowing for the Universe and your deeper soul to reveal to you signs and symbols and synchronicities to light the way.

There is no reason to stress and worry, instead trust the process to show you the way at just the right time.  Stress and fear can only close you up so you cannot “see straight”.

Your awareness is getting sharper, your consciousness is expanding, so naturally old ways may not work anymore. It can bring fear at first to let go of old security structures, but time will bring you new security and greater freedom to live your life authentically.

See you next week,

I will be broadcasting some radio shows on blog talk radio on November 10 and November 24. I will also do a new YouTube presentation sometime soon also.

Soul Searching and Astrology Forecast for December 11- December 17

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on December 10, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Today, at the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon and Uranus Direct, we shift our gears and open up to more fully embrace the changes. Mercury Goes Direct this week Tuesday to also help us to move forward.

The last few weeks we have been experiencing the Eclipse Season while Mercury has been retrograde.  It is good to keep in mind that we are also experiencing the days getting darker and darker on the way to a Winter Solstice on December 21/22.

It has been a very intense period, when we have been shaken out of our usual comfort zones, and challenged to let go and trust the process of nature and the Universe.

It is so easy in the modern world to go on cruise control with our lives, to live in habits, and to ignore the fact that there is deep mystery of life that has much influence over us.

At these times of great planetary shifting, we are made to be aware of the fact that there are powerful forces of the Universe influencing our consciousness and lives.

Life is not meant to be just a casual journey through material experience.   We have souls and those souls are connected to the Great Mystery.

We come here to Earth for a reason, not just to have the American dream of material comfort.

Our souls reveal to us that there is Oneness, that all is connected, that we are connected to one another, to nature, and to the Universe.

Our material bodies, which do separate us one from another, have a tendency in our current human paradigm, to assist us in ignoring the fact we have souls.

We are taught only to trust and believe in that which we can see and touch.  The inner spiritual dimension is not truly honored and is considered by many to be “wu-wu” or foolish and to be ridiculed.   We  are taught to approach all our issues or challenges in linear, “scientific” terms only.

If we have an illness, we see it in very linear terms, trying to fix it like fixing a car.

But our souls teach us wholeness and oneness, that our spirits, minds, soulls and bodies are connected, and that they are constantly interacting with one another.

To try to fix what is wrong with your body without healing your soul or soothing your mind or looking for the messages from nature and the Universe does not  truly heal the situation.  Instead it makes you reliant on mainstream thought and medicine from the old world we are leavng behind.

Religion from the old world does talk of souls, but mainly in the context of being moral or good so you can go to heaven not hell.

Soul in the new world is not about judgement, but about connection to the Universe and its principles, messages, cycles, and energies.

As you move through these challenging times now, concentrate on releasing your grip to the old world and its fear, guilt, rules, and judgements that imprison your soul in its programming.

Open instead to your inner wisdom, to the guidance of the Universe as seen through signs and symbols and sychronicities.

All that is happening to you is meant to assist your soul’s journey to more light and truth and love.  Pain is in ratio to how much you resist the movement forward into a new world.

So now at the turning of the wheels of the Universe during this eclipse season, let go of the false security of an old world that is dying, an old paradigm for living on the Earth that is dying. Open to the beauty that is You in your Authentic Self, connected to all other authentic selves- on the way to an Aquarian Age.

You can see all the freedom and liberation movements happening all over the world, including now here in the United States with OWS and in Russia the last few days also.

There is no stopping this movement forward into an Aquarian Age. It is as destined as the changing of seasons in the year. This a seasonal change of the Universe, from a Pisces Age begun over 2000 years ago to the cusp of an Aquarian Age we are now on.

Yes there will be much chaos and trouble in the greater world coming, but do your best to not hook into the dramas of fear, hatred, demonizing of enemies, and general mistrust of others and the world.  There will be explosive changes coming our way in 2012, but we each need to remind ourselves we have been born at this time for a reason.

Ask your self why you are here now at such an important time on the Earth. What is your role?  It can simply mean you are here to raise conscious children for a new world, or to spead more postive and loving energy to others. It can mean that you, as you evolve and transform your life into the Aquarian Age, are becoming a cell in the body of the collective of souls who are creating this new world.

This coming week, we begin to slowly move out of the Eclipse season, as we passed the last eclipse today December 10.   And finally Mercury goes direct this Tuesday evening.   Clarity gets stronger, the confusion lifts, the strange zone many of us have been in begins to pass.

But it will not be time to spread your wings and fly as we are moving into darker and darker days leading up to the Winter Solstice on December 22 at 12:30 AM on the east coast. It is at 9:30 PM on the west coast of the USA.

At this time of year, as the darkness settles in, we appreciate the blessings and people we do have in our lives, and we reach out our hearts to those who are suffering, alone, or are losing hope.  We know they are a part of each one of us, as each of us has felt despair or pain.

Yet as we leave the eclipses and Mercury Rerograde behind,  the intensity subsides and we begin to settle into and integrate the changes that have come our way.

We are in the holiday season now, and many people are able to still appreciate the deeper meaning of this season, beyond the commercial rate race.

See you next week,

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on Winter Solstice and Forecast for December 19-25

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on December 18, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The energy field is intensifying as we get closer and closer to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice on Tuesday December 21.   Mercury is retrograde also now.  That combination can cause life to seem more out of control,  more difficult to make sense of.  It may be challenging sometimes now to find answers or solutions.  Problems may seem very big and seem like there is no easy way out.

Keep in mind that the aspects are very challenging now, and do not try too hard to find quick solutions.  Let the process unfold.  Realize that at times like this one’s mind cannot always find good answers easily.   

Do not push the river. Let it flow naturally.   Let life unfold now, trusting that answers and direction will come in due time. If you believe life is meaningful, then know that whatever challenges you are facing during this time is happening for a reason.  You may not be able to know what that is yet, but in time you will.

It is also important now to know that some things that are ready to be let go- will be breaking down. Of course it is natural to try to fix what has broken down, and maybe it can be fixed.   Often, however, the breakdown is a sign that it is time to let something or someone go, that it is ready to be released, as you are ready to go forward with your life.

And of course the breakdowns are sometimes just breakdowns of old dyfunctional and toxic patterns of behavior that keep you from having a more healthy and satisfying life.  You do not necessarly need to let go of the friendship, for instance, but instead may need to change the patterns of behavior between you.

Breakthroughs also are quite common during these eclipse times, and one can be taken outside the usual boxes of perception.  The “light” can go on and you will be able to see your problems from a new angle, one that helps you to see the truth you have not previously seen.   Then once you gain this new awareness, you begin a path to changing an old pattern that has previously held you back.

The status quo of our lives is seeking to be changed. It is time to move on from “same-old, same-old”.   But usually it is so difficult to make changes as the familiar has such a tight hold on us. But at time like this, like this Lunar Eclipse at the Winter Solstice, the grip of the status quo is loosened and we are given the opportunity to move forward with change.

At the next eclipse on January 4, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn, we will get  another boost forward.    And get used to these changing tides, as 2011 will bring us more and more change.

In the greater world, we have been alerting you in past writings that a big event(s) is coming our way during or soon after this eclipse season.  The WiliLeaks situation fits somewhat, but I believe something even more earth shaking will soon occur.

North and South Korea have been threatening each other very horrifically since a big conflict erupted between them in November. At that time, South Korea was doing a miitary exercise on Yeonpyeyong Island, which is an island that North Korea believes belongs to it, though western powers arbitrarily decided it belonged to South Korea after the Korean War ended in 1953.    Shots were fired and North Korea reacted by firing onto the island, killing 4 people including 2 civilians.  This has since caused much tension between the Koreas..

And to add to the tension and potentially make this a most explosive time for the Koreas and the world, South Korea has decided to do a one day military excercise on the island again between December 18-21.  North Korea, which owns nuclear weapons, has threatened to start a war if the exercise is carried out by South Korea. South Korea says it will not be stopped from doing the excercise.

The weather will likely stop the excercise from happening this weekend December 18 or 19, which means that of this writing it is remarkably scheduled for Monday December 20 or Tuesday December 21, the day of the Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice, which is the darkest day of the year, appropriate to what is being threatened. 

If hostilities do in fact erupt there, that would definitely be the big event that will change our world.  Dominoes would fall over the Earth as a result.

Keep in mind however that often issues and events intensify around eclipse times, and this eclipse combines with the winter solstice, making it even more potent. This eclipse will necessarily bring this issue and other ones to a climax, but at that climax it is possible that tensions will then alleviate. There is of course much diplomatic effort going on to stop this possible war at this time. 

If this event does erupt into our lives, it will be the catalyst for worldwide change. Even if it does not erupt at this time, it will still cause big changes in our world, as taking things ot the brink often does.

It is like when two people in an intimate relationship threaten to hurt one another and to break up during a ferocious argument.    Taking the relationship to the brink like that will either cause the relationship to end, or will scare them enough of losing one another to make drastic changes.

Other big world events are also possible during this eclipse season or soon afterward.   We are in changing times, bigger than normal changing times,as we are changing paradigms and ages over the next few years.

Next weekend there will be no new Perspectives from the Sky Forecast. But the following week, in alignment with the New Year 2011 and prior to the Solar Eclipse on January 4, ther will be a new forecast.

Much love and many blessings during this holiday season

Take care,

Leo Knighton Tallarico

Ride the Tide, and Astrology Forecast November 28-December 4

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 27, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are on the outskirts of a very intense and transformative time period.    We  have let you know in previous writings that the time period between late October 2010 through January 2011 was an important time period, especially for world events that will shake up and change our lives.   

The most powerful part of that time period is December 5 2010 through January 19 2011. 

That time period begins on December 5 with a fiery New Moon in Sagittarius, on the same day that Uranus goes direct. Rebellious spirits are ignited.  It ends at a Full Moon on January 19 that brings to climax the energies initiated at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on January 4 2011, an eclipse that is in opposition to the natal USA Sun from its birthchart of July 4 1776.  Forces in conflict with the USA are stoked and made active.

In the middle of the time period is an extremely significant Lunar Eclipse Full Moon  at 29+ degrees of Sagittarius/Gemini on the Winter Solstice on December 21 2010.  This combination of aspects provides us with a Universal signature for the winter season.

The last eclipse that happened on the day of a solstice or equinox was in June 2001, when there was a solar eclipse on the day of the summer solstice. Before that summer ended there was an attack on the twin towers in New York, on September 11.

There are so many more important aspects swirling around this time also.    The summer of 2010 has passed, but the aspects from that summer have not been triggered yet.    They will from December 7-15 when Mars goes through early Capricorn, touching off the Grand Cross and cardinal t-square and Saturn square Pluto from that 2010 summer.    In late January through early February Jupiter will travel through early Aries, triggering the same aspects again.   Trigger aspects tend to touch off events that the original aspects set in motion.

To know what may happen, it is therefore important to look at what has been brewing in the world this year leading up to the important time period we are now moving through.

For one the economy has continued to be shaky, clouded by the fact that recently the stock market has been doing fairly well.   It seems that the movement of the economy has been in neutral, everyone waiting to see if the direction will move up or down. The coming eclipses and trigger times should give us more clarity about the direction of the economy.

Korea has also been in intense volatility also. Earlier this year North Korea blew up a South Korean submarine and killed almost 50 sailors.  And most ominous, this past week North and South Korea fired at eack other, as North Korea fired across at an island belonging to South Korea.  It has been reported that 4 people were killed as a result, two who were civilians.   

This event has brought the ongoing conflict between North and South Korea to its most dangerous place since the end of the fighting in the Korean War in 1953.

And of course this battle brings China into the picture as it borders Korea and has North Korea as an ally country.   Since China is also in conflict recently with the USA economically, this exacerbates tensions between them.   China is a growing power in the world, and will not take a subordinate role to the USA.  The coming weeks during the “hot” astrological period ahead look very dangerous there.

The Middle East has also been boiling hot this year. In late spring a Turkish flotilla was travelling to the Gaza strip to bring supplies and food  to an impoverished people there. Israel felt threatened and attacked one of the boats in the flotilla and killed 9 Turkish citizens.  This move has pushed Turkey firmly away from “friendship” with Israel and closer in relationship to Iran and Iranian cohort Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians is going nowhere, Iran is not complying with western countries’ demands to abandon its nuclear program, and all is coming to a climax during the “hot” astrological period ahead, especially concerning Iran and Hezbollah in Lebanon.

So the Middle East, Korea, and the economy will be in the spotlight during the astrologically hot period.   There has also been much focus on terrorism recently also, with increased security at airports and intelligence networks information about increased threats to European nations.

We can expect the strong possibility that big event(s) will change our lives during the coming couple of months, mostly through January 19, but potentially for the entire winter.

It is important now, in our personal lives, to be with change, to be flexible.   True evolution is about adaptation to changing conditions.  Do not hang on to anything too tightly, non attachment is most helpful now. And that includes attachment to “how it has always been”.   For instance look at the values of our homes now, as we were conditioned to believe those values would always go up, not down as they have been going.   

The paradigm is changing rapidly, yet the guardians of the old world are fighting fiercely to keep the status quo, to keep us thinking “inside the box”.   The guardians of the old paradigm will continue to fight for old ways, like keeping our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters oppressed and ostracized.  This is all transforming and before long we will be all together in a “Diversity in Unity and Equality” world.   Move with it and let go of the old paradigm.

The guardians of the old paradigm and old age want to keep us programmed to believe there are peoples out there who are our enemies, like now North Korea and Iran and perhaps soon China.  Remember we are moving to a multipolar world, where all are known as one family on the Earth, many races and faces, but all one. Do not get pulled into hatred by the media, which has mainly become a tool of the Powers that Be of the old paradigm and age.

We have all been programmed more than we acknowledge, and we need to return to free minds, hearts, souls and spirits. From that place we find Truth, and from that place we learn acceptance for all our greater family.

As we learn to put ourselves into the shoes of those who are from different cultures, we learn to live together as one community here on Earth.

Do not let fear or hatred grab you too tightly now, and that includes your experiences in your personal life.  Challenges we face now are tests to grow and transform, to heal old wounds that have kept our hearts hardened or closed. 

Week Ahead

This week is a waning last quarter moon, moving closer to a powerful lunar cycle begun on December 5 at the Sagittarius New Moon, as Uranus goes Direct also.  Before and around this New Moon are strong aspects to the charts of North and South Korea and Israel.  Also the charts of Obama and the USA will be heavily aspected over the next couple of weeks, as Mars moves over the early degrees of cardinal sign Capricorn.

Mars square Jupiter early this week brings spirits high and for some out of control.  Move with spirit, but keep yourself grounded. Late in the week, Mars squares Uranus to break open more active energies before the New Moon on December 5.   Conflicts can break open this week, but so can free spirits wanting to leave old and confining ways and patterns. 

It is getting more and more difficult to hold back the rising  tides of change.  Getting to be time to ride the tide.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A new world beckons and is on the horizon.

AstrologyReport for November 14- November 20

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

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

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

See you next week,
