Healing and Humbling on the Way to Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 and Astrology Forecast September 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 6, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week the planetary highlight is  a Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces.   This lunation may bring in the first winds of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014, yet the official beginnings of that eclipse season will not be until the New Moon in Libra on September 23/24.

The Full Moon in Pisces this week is on Monday September 8 at 9:38 PM EDT.   The combination of Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces is usually very gentle and yin-like energetically.   There is a “coming down” into one’s body and soul,  a joining with the wisdom within.  This Full Moon in Pisces has a humility that comes with it, so any need to inflate one’s ego will get little support from the Universe at this time.

Pisces and Virgo have in common well developed sensitivity- Virgo more to the physical world and Pisces more to the emotional soul world.   Virgo wants a purity in the body and so is very sensitive to toxins and environmental stresses. Pisces picks up the moods and emotions of others quite easily and so is very sensitive to toxic emotions.

So it is advised to be aware of one’s body and feelings during the days surrounding this Full Moon.   This is not a time to be manic or even overly excited. It is a time to “check in” and be present to all that may be going on inside your self and around you.

The time of influence for this Full Moon is Saturday and Sunday leading up to the Full Moon, Monday the day of the Full Moon when there will be the greatest intensity of it,  Tuesday as it begins to subside, and Wednesday as its influence passes.

On Wednesday you will begin to feel more “active” energies as the Moon has gone into Aries that day. Be careful before Wednesday not to fall into any depressive attitudes.

To look into the eyes of what feels soulful and sad is OK and natural around this Full Moon, but make sure not to wallow in it or to develop a “story” that is based on old memories or patterns.

Remember also that this Full Moon is a kind of culmination, conclusion or climax from what was begun around the time of the New Moon in Virgo on August 25.

Getting things fixed or putting things in order,  going for checkups and maintenance, and focusing on details and mundane concerns has been a theme of these last couple of weeks of Virgo influence.  And this will stay a theme until the week of September 22 when the Autumn Equinox and Libra New Moon shift our attentions, and we experience the true beginnings of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.

This year the Cardinal Grand Cross has brought our human family into a powerful new chapter in our personal and collective lives.  Our sense of what feels normal in our psyche and lives has shifted. The greater world also feels very different now, as we process the events in the Middle East, Ukraine, and elsewhere.

The Cardinal Grand Cross made a very close aspect to the USA natal Sun from July 4 1776, and it planted the planetary seeds of a vast transformation for the USA.

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on October 8 this year forms a Cardinal T-Square with Uranus and Pluto that is close again to the USA Sun and Saturn, bringing more large waves of change and transformation.

The USA is losing its status as Superpower and making its way into a more equitable role in the developing Age of Aquarius, which will form a world of Diversity in Unity.

There is a reworking of the balance of power in the world, and we citizens of the USA and also the Western World in general, are in the beginning stages of developing more collective humility.

It is apparent that a military macho hawkishness is developing in the USA and Western world as a result of the “terrorist” mentality.  There is an attitude that the enemies must be destroyed and that the “vermine” in the world need to be eradicated. Military Orkin needs to kill the dangerous pests that are growing stronger and stronger.

And it is certainly the case with a most ruthless and hateful group like the Islamic State, that a “knee-jerk” reaction is to want to kill them all to protect ourselves and our way of life. And of course we do need to defend ourselves against dangers to our existence. But if we do not get to the root causes of the problem, the same dangers will come back over and over again, each time with greater ferocity.

And just like in your own life when something threatens it with disease or rejection or abandonment or failure, you go deeper to find out why you are being challenged in such a way. Then you need to find meaning to it all, and find out what kind of healing and transformation is needed.

The world that we all have co-created has a foundation that is decaying because of a deficiency of love and truth, fairness and justice, equality and connection.  It is run by a paradigm that is not honoring our Earth and environment, not caring enough for those who have less and suffer, and not recognizing the connections and meaning that the Universe is fueled on.

The rulers of the Old World can only see life through the lens of power and wealth, and thus can only react with military power and an economic system that controls so much of the world.

What has begun to shift our consciousness and world this year will intensify during the Autumn Eclipse Season, especially in late September and October.  Greater changes are on the way.

There is no return to the old chapter of our lives, so we must now adapt to this new world, and of course adaptation is what brings evolution of consciousness.

In your personal life, the new chapter of your life is forming a bit more clearly now, but you are with the baby steps into this new chapter.

Autumn Eclipse Season will soon pick up the pace again, the energy field will intensify more, and we will be thrust more fully into this New World.  It is normal to grieve what will be no more, but it is becoming time to accept the reality of your “new season” and to put more of your heart into making it work and into it being more satisfying.

This week brings the humble and service oriented Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces.  Mars will be finishing up its passionate and intense journey in Scorpio on Saturday the 15th, when it travels into fiery, inspired, joyful, and adventurous Sagittarius.

This week also brings the 13th anniversary of the 9-11 tragedy in the USA and the USA Moon in Aquarius is being aspected by Mars in Scorpio at that time. Israel’s natal chart will also be triggered by Mars in Scorpio this week. Events concerning those two countries is more likely than usual this week, though not at all certain.

See you next week,

Leo

Time to Pause and Astrology Forecast August 17-23

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 16, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving down into the last quarter of the lunar cycle this week, and there are no “important” or very intense planetary movements right now.  Maybe we can take a break from so many great waves of change, and settle down a bit.

We are also in the last few days of Leo time of year before we enter the transition month between summer and autumn.   That transition begins later this week as the Sun moves into Virgo on Saturday the 23rd at 12:46 AM Eastern USA Time.

So if you have not gotten too beaten up by all the intensity from early this year through last week, perhaps you can find some time for fun this week.

Or maybe you will need the time to process all that has happened, to get deeper into your body and soul and do some healing.  Perhaps you will need this down time to make some completions, find some resolution, get a better understanding of all that has erupted in your life this year.

This year is an important year of transformation for our human species.  We are in a most powerful chapter of the transition between ages.   We are being “asked” to transform our lives and consciousness in alignment with the Age we are moving into.

To evolve one does not have to be “mean and lean”, does not necessarily mean being the strongest or the most intelligent.  Survival of the fittest is mostly about adaptability to change.

And right now adaptability is mostly about changing one’s consciousness to be in alignment with what the Age of Aquarius is demanding.  Those who still believe that the ones who have the most power or the most money or the most popularity will be the survivors – are off track as that kind will populate the zoos or be the dinosaurs of our future.

Those who believe in Love, who know we are all members of the same family, who respect those who are different from them,  who cherish the Earth, who learn to have empathy for others,  who know all in life is connected and meaningful, will evolve into our new world.  Jesus is said to have spoken that the “meek share inherit the Earth”.  Those who have peace in their hearts will help our Earth and our human family to heal and transform.

I know when you look around now at all the events in the world, it can be so frightening and tempt one to live in fear and become cynical.

Last week we had a well known member of our human family, one who was famous and rich hang himself- Robin Williams.

Buying into the cultural values and being successful on those terms does not make one happy or help one to better survive in the bigger picture.

What one develops in one’s heart and soul, in one’s “inner kingdom”, is where the key to being satisfied and evolving lies.

If you are fearful, depressed, self loathing, untrusting, then you will find misery and you will not truly grow and evolve on a deeper level.  This does not mean you should judge or blame yourself or others for being in that sad state. But you do need to take responsibility for your inner health.

And it does mean that going within and finding your true self, finding inner peace, finding love and truth, will help you most on your life journey.

This does not mean that money or success or popularity are bad, and in fact they can make life easier and more enjoyable.

But without the inner values, those things will be empty and you may never feel you have enough of them.

And without the intention for your  consciousness evolving now, beyond what the conventional world has programmed you to believe and be, you will not be open to the signs that show you your true path of soul evolution.

If you are becoming who others want you to be, you are losing your Self and your health and moving off your soul’s path.

One of the benefits of these transformational times is that the parts of your life that are inauthentic are revealed to you when things break down, so you can see the light again and change direction.

Powerfully transformative Uranus and Pluto will continue making exact square to one another, which has been happening since 2012, through Spring 2015- and will continue to bring transformational energy even after that.

The last time Uranus and Pluto made major exact aspect to one another was in 1965-66 when they were conjunct.  This brought on the ’60s revolution, but of course that revolution stretched into the ’70s.

The next exact square between Uranus and Pluto is in December this year 2014.  And that will be at the end of the autumn, finishing off another Eclipse Season, this time Autumn Eclipse Season 2014. 

The beginning waves of this Eclipse Season will be felt in mid September and the first actual eclipse will be on October 8, a Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries. That will be followed by a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 23.

Uranus and Pluto will be making a Cardinal T-square with  that Aries Lunar Eclipse, a formation almost as powerful as a Grand Cross.

But for now as we enter the last quarter Moon in Taurus this Sunday the 17th, do your best to chill and recharge your heart “batteries”.

Late Sunday/early Monday Jupiter conjuncts Venus in Leo, to bring more joy and hope to you along with the light and airy Moon in Gemini at that time.

Later in the week, after the Moon goes into feeling oriented Cancer from Wednesday through most of Friday, there are relatively minor aspects involving Uranus, Pluto, and Mars in Scorpio.  That should bring more intensity, but nothing to shake you up too much.

See you next week,

Leo

“Better Angels” and Astrology Forecast September 29- October 5

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 28, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

For most of the coming week the Moon and our energetic output are waning.   We are in the last quarter of the lunar cycle until this Friday October 4  at 8:35 PM EDT at the Libra New Moon.

New Moons are times of new beginnings every month, and at a Libra New Moon we are usually moved to lay down our swords of attack or defensiveness, to find potential agreement, to bring balance and harmony to a relationship or situation.   Social graces and social niceties usually prevail over a more real expression of what is bothering us or what we personally may need.   Justice and fairness are higher values that resonate more when Libra energies are strong.

But at this New Moon in Libra on October 4, energies will be more complicated than at the usual Libra New Moon.  And since a New Moon sets a tone for the  lunar cycle it initiates, we usually can expect a rather pleasant and peaceful ride at and after a Libra New Moon, one where diplomatic communication is the rule.

Of course Scorpio follows Libra, and then the gloves get taken off so people can “get down” into their more real and sometimes more crude expressions of emotion.

But this year at the Libra New Moon, there are some real stresses to the usually pleasant Libra energies.  First of all this Libra New Moon leads the way into the first of the eclipses this autumn:   A Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aries on October 18.

So the Libra New Moon this week pretty much touches off the Autumn Eclipse Season.  To add to the importance and intensity of this Libra New Moon,  the new moon is part of a strong T-square and a weaker Grand Cross.

T-squares and Grand Crosses create the tension of being pulled in several different  directions at the same time.

In this case the Sun and Moon will be conjunct at almost 12 degrees of Libra; are in opposition to Uranus in Aries at over 10 degrees of Aries; and are squared (90 degree angle) by Pluto at over 9 degrees of Capricorn. These planets are in tight orb with one another by degree, making a powerful T-square.

Jupiter will be in Cancer at over 18 degrees of Cancer to form a weak Grand Cross, weak because it is far from being an exact opposition to Pluto or square to Uranus.

No matter what it is called this planetary formation brings much tension and intensity.

The Libra planets want relationship, agreement, harmony, balance, and peace.  Uranus in Aries wakes us out of any slumber and shows us our personal desires and needs that may not feel comfortable with agreement or pleasantries.    Pluto in Capricorn seeks to get to the core of an issue, even if it causes distress and discomfort.   And if we include Jupiter in Cancer, we then potentially are dealing with emotions and moods that can get out of control.

So there is much that can pull us away from making pleasant agreements, diplomatic solutions, or balanced mindsets. The winds of the Autumn Eclipse Season are beginning to blow in.

In the greater world, the Obama administration has taken the fervor out of the drums of war that have been beating for Syria and Iran.  It feels as if this new found path to peace is a major turning point in our journey toward an Aquarian Age of equality for all nations and peoples; power to the people of the world; and Diversity in Unity.

But we can expect a powerful backlash from the Guardians of the Old World Paradigm.   That paradigm needs enemies; trusts no one who is different; and truly believes in the Old Testament god of judgment, punishment, “an eye for an eye” revenge, and in many case an apocalyptic drama for humanity.

Those who have been awakened know that true evolution of our species is now dependent on knowing we are all one family, and that survival of the fittest now necessitates our collective agreement to survive together.

Iran’s President Rouhani stated at the UN this week that all nuclear weapons need to be abolished and destroyed.  Whether you trust his sincerity or not, he is absolutely correct.  We all need to lay down our swords and know we are all in this together, because now what used to be swords are weapons of mass destruction, which can kill us all.

And it is true arrogance to believe “my country” can be trusted with these weapons, while others cannot. The USA used nuclear weapons to kill almost 300,000 mostly civilian Japanese at the end of World War II, far more than the 3000 killed in the twin towers on 9-11-2001.

So at this Libra New Moon T-square, there will be stresses to the path of peace with Syria and Iran.     And there already are stresses to the potential budget agreement to avert a government shutdown.

There are very powerful aspects to President Obama’s natal chart this Autumn Eclipse Season.   The first eclipse on October 18 is conjunct Obama’s natal Saturn, almost exactly.   There are serious and “fated” events on the way that will bring “heavy” energies to our President.

And Saturn in Scorpio and the Hybrid Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio in November square the usually hopeful and shiny Leo Sun of President Obama.   Dark days are coming his way this Autumn, especially as he has shown he wants to try make relationship with the Empire’s sworn enemies.    This possible reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln needs our prayers as he is apparently listening to his “better angels” now.

In your own life, use the earlier part of this coming week, during the waning darkening moon, to listen to your own “better angels”, your Higher Self.  That way you will be building a solid inner consciousness foundation for the coming emotional storms of the Autumn Eclipse Season.

Especially as we get closer and closer to the Hybrid Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, we will be tested to stay on our spiritual path in inner balance.   This does not mean repressing your organic expressions of authentic feelings and thoughts.  It does mean, however, using the light of our Higher Self to guide the way, even when we are taken off balance to express our truth, which we sometimes need to empower ourselves.

That expression of our Truth, even if “ugly” and seemingly destructive at the time, can still be in service to our Higher Self and in alignment with the Universe.

See you next week,

Leo

Peace and Love and Astrology Forecast September 22-28

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 21, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The moment of exact balance between light and dark, yin and yang is tomorrow Sunday September 22 at 4:44 PM EDT.  That is the moment of the Autumn Equinox, and the beginning of the month of Sun in Libra, the scales of balance.

After that moment of true equality between light minutes of the day and dark minutes, the dark then continues to grow day by day until the Winter Solstice when dark is at its zenith.

The Autumn Equinox is like a sunset time of year, as light begins to dim with a feeling of softening, slowing down, and drifting more inward.

It is Libra time of year, a time to begin to let go of action orientation, striving too hard, and self focus.    It is time to make connections.   Relationship begins to become more important as is listening to others.  Libra helps us to be more socially conscious, to be more civil and to find peace with others.   Libra helps us to see both sides of an issue and to balance the scales to find greater equality.   Justice is important to Libra, as is fairness. Libra is beauty, and visual art, and aesthetics are important. Of course one can make an argument that Libra time of year is the most beautiful as the leaves change into many lovely colors, like a floral arrangement. Libra’s weaknesses are self denial and a civility that represses being real and expressing openly.

In your life, as we move through the Autumn Equinox, you can meditate on peace and love, on finding balance inside your self and in your life.   It is a fine time also to think of your social values and how to put more focus now on your romantic relationships as well as your friendships.

Later this will be a most powerful Autumn Season, with two eclipses, an exact Uranus/Pluto meeting, Mercury Retrograde, and Comet Ison.

It has been a challenging week leading up the Equinox for many people.   As the guardian of the underworld Pluto changed directions forward,  it made a sextile aspect to god of gravity Saturn.   Many people faced some darker dramas in their life or inside themselves this past week.

In the greater world there were two explosively destructive acts committed as Pluto and Saturn were making aspect:   A terror attack in Kenya and  huge bombings in Pakistan and Iraq.  Together Pluto and Saturn can be ruthless and seemingly needlessly destructive.

The meaning of the events precipitated by Saturn and Pluto, however, is usually about endings that cannot be avoided, that hanging on too long will not be tolerated anymore.

Over the last two weeks, the situation in Syria has calmed down.  It calmed down in large part because polls showed that the people did not want the war, and Congress, the voice of the people, was also against the war.   I suspect that deep in his soul, President Obama does not want the war either.  He needed the people and Congress to bail him out of a most dangerous and destructive war.  He is now reportedly trying to make relationship with Iran to avoid a confrontation there.

Chemical weapons being used or not was not the real issue in Syria. The real issue for the Empire is still gaining control over the Middle East region and protecting Israel in the process.  But if the people are not behind the actions of attack, it will be difficult  for them to perpetrate an attack.  But they may still find a way to get the people involved, or they could go in anyway if they feel it is necessary to meet their ends.

But no matter what happens next, this agreement between Russia and the USA gives us hope that the Aquarian Age, a time of power to the people, a time of equal world powers, is picking up momentum.

Hopefully this breakthrough in Syria was a major breakthrough into the consciousness of a new age.

But coming up is a most powerful and potentially explosive Autumn Eclipse Season.    There will be a Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on November 3, and it will be seen on much of the east coast USA and central Africa, regions that will feel the greatest impact of intensity.

Some of our shadows and inner demons will likely rise to the surface, bringing most challenging events.  The economy and the Middle East will still be much of the focus of the coming transformational changes.

President Obama’s natal chart will be very affected by the coming eclipses, and his life will be going through much turmoil.   There are many various powers that will be challenging his soul and life.  I still believe he has a strong connection and maybe past life with Abraham Lincoln.

One can see, as we watch him struggle, a soul being pulled in many directions, trying to choose which path to take.  There is the power of the Economic and Military strength of the Empire, perhaps threatening his life; the desire to protect America from danger; the desire to do what is right as a human being for all concerned; the pull of ego as one considered the most important and powerful person in the world.

President Obama is of course a Leo, and as such ego can be an important motivation.  Obama has a south node of the Moon in Aquarius (where a soul’s past life resides and the Sun sign of Abraham Lincoln), with a north node (what a soul wants to integrate in the present lifetime) in “leading actor” Leo.

He is therefore pulled in two directions: one of equality and listening to all the voices in one’s community as Lincoln did; or being a strong leader and determining on one’s own what is best to do.

With Syria, at first he made a unilateral decision to go to war (being Leo); then he decided to ask Congress and the American people and work with Russia (being Aquarius)

This will be a very interesting but likely dangerous time period for the world coming up during the Autumn Eclipse Season.

In your own life, issues and intensity should be winding down this coming week, at least relative to what is soon coming our way.   We are in the waning days of the lunar cycle, waiting for a New Moon in Libra on October 4.

So for now, there is a plateau you can temporarily rest on this coming week, getting your self prepared for more intensity and change later in October.   The first Eclipse will be a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aries on October 18.    The first real winds of the Eclipse Season will be at that Libra New Moon on October 4. The greatest force of the Eclipse “storms” will be in early November, and the Eclipse Season will likely last until at least late November.

I will be doing a Youtube video forecast for the Autumn Eclipse Season on September 26, which you can see on Saturday the 28th of September.

See you next week,

Leo
