Sacred Turning Point and Astrology Forecast December 25- December 31.

As we move through a sacred Judeo/Christian time period, we are in the darkening last quarter of the lunar cycle- until Thursday December 29.  

Last week we experienced the darkest time of the solar cycle- leading up to the Winter Solstice.

This will feel like a very sad and soulful time for many people.

2016 is coming to an end, and the Presidency of Barack Obama is soon to end also.

In many ways President Obama brought us closer to an Age of Aquarius. Though the Miltary/Industrial Complex still rules, his policies brought us “friendlier” relationships with Cuba, Iran, the Muslim world and Palestinians.

He also was the first President of color and he helped to move us towardgreater inclusiveness with the LGBT community by leading the way toward cultural acceptance of gay marriage and transgender people.

Now, if looking at life from a global outer world perspective, we will in many ways seem to be moving backwards in experiencing much of the old paradigm from a dying age.

The Trump administration and nationalistic movements in many western countries bring with it more separation and greater chances of world conflicts and war.

Though I strongly believe we are metaphorically taking 2 steps backward before taking many steps forward in a few years, it is understandable that many people are feeling greater fear and anger.

But even though the outer global world feels as if it is going backwards, those of us on a spiritual path will be challenged to grow and evolve.

How do we keep love in our hearts while the world is going crazy? How do we let go of hatred and fear when leaders in the outer world are bringing us policies that bring greater danger to our environment and Earth?

How can we keep our center when leaders in the new American administration are all very wealthy and militaristic?

How do we stop ourselves from being depressed when we witness greater misogyny and prejudice, while there is more world conflict and more separation between haves and have nots economically?

Christ, who is being celebrated by many now, gave us an example of having love, compassion, and faith in a world filled with hate, corruption, and injustice.

The beginning of the Pisces Age was begun around the birth of Christ with its fish symbols.  This birth happened just a few years after the births of Buddha and Lao Tse, and a few years before Mohammed, all signature figures of the Age of Pisces.

Though the messages of these spiritual masters was largely diluted and corrupted by churches in their names during the Pisces Age, it is incumbent on each us to resurrect and deeply own in our consciousness the essence of what each of these people represented.

The many faceted and mysterious great Goddess is an important part of the Age of Aquarius, and as she energetically joins with the spiritual masters of the Age of Pisces, we have our spiritual foundation for the Age of Aquarius.

But they are not above us in hierarchy in an Age of Aquarius.  They are us, integrated deeply in each of our hearts and souls.

And now that is our inner work: evolving spiritually in a toxic world, to be “in the world but not of the world”.

At the same time, we begin our outer work of planting seeds of change for the outer world. We will participate in protests, gatherings like the Million Woman March on the day after Inauguration Day for Donald Trump, and civil disobedience as was shown by Martin Luther King and Ghandhi.

We must each find our way to seeing the bigger picture and commiting to a New Age regardless of who is president or who is ruling the world.  Who do you believe runs this Universe? Is it Caesar of the material world or the energies of Love and Truth?

This week we experience the darkening Moon until December 29 at the New Moon in Capricorn at 1:53 AM EST.

That same day brings us the liberating, awakening energies of Uranus as it changes directions from Retrograde to Direct. Uranus, arguably more than any other planet, signifies change.

So there will be a feeling surrounding the 29th of new beginnings and big change.

The New Moon in Capricorn shows us the beginning of a greater sense of responsibility, loyalty, groundedness, and needs to accomplish.

The Sun is always in Capricorn on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day when many people make their resolutions. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn which rules Time.  Capricorn is also about plans, commitment, and discipline, which are a big part of resolutions.

Uranus changing directions often feels like radical change and revolution.

So this would then be a great time to make a commitment (Capricorn) to revolution and transformational change (Uranus).

I would also not be surprised by big world events around this time.

On New Years Eve, Mars will be conjunct Neptune.

Mars is action, force, and will.  Neptune as God of the Ocean is deep soul and feelings.  It is the inner spiritual world as ruling planet of Pisces.

It also rules alcohol and drugs.  So be very careful how much you use those to bring in the New Year 2017.

Neptune is also letting go, going with the flow and surrender.  So Mars’ force will be greatly diluted by Neptune.  So it is best not to force issues or agendas, and instead to be flexible and trusting of energies and realities beyond our controls.

till next week when we will look at the year ahead.

I will put out a YouTube video soon after the first. I also intend to host an ongoing streaming radio show soon also. More on that later.

Inner Voyages and Astrology Forecast February 3-9

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 2, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Jupiter went direct last week and Imbolc is being passed through now, so there is some sense of light at the end of the tunnel of our winter doldrums.   New enthusiasm and inspiration, especially for future endeavors, can be accessed now.

We are now in the second half of our Winter season here in the northern hemisphere of the Earth.   The Groundhog has spoken of light on the way for this coming Spring 2013.

In the year 2013, Bill Murray’s Groundhog Day same-old same-old reality will be broken open into a new day this year for all of us.

March 2013 promises a new crack of dawn for this year; and then for this Spring 2013,  Act I of our new world dramas will erupt into our collective global consciousness.

There will be three eclipses this spring, one more than the usual, and our world view will shake up considerably then.  Uranus square Pluto will have another exact meeting in Spring 2013 also, bringing world tensions to a full boil.

Later this year, especially in the autumn of 2013, when there are more eclipses and another Uranus/Pluto meeting, more great change will swirl into our lives.   Comet Ison, expected to a be an extremely bright one, comes also this Autumn 2013.

And then in April 2014, there is a Grand Cross Cardinal T-square, containing both Uranus and Pluto, making almost exact aspect to the USA natal Sun.  Spring Eclipse 2014 will also be going on then.

So world transformation, especially for the USA, will be very strong over the next year and a half or so.  This could be one of the biggest world change periods we have or will experience in our lifetimes.

This Spring 2013 will usher in the beginning stages of this huge change, and we will talk more specifics as we get into March 2013.

For now, however, there is a lot of slo-mo coming.   Mars has just gone into Pisces, and Mercury follows on Tuesday the 5th of February.   They will both be in conjunction with Neptune in Pisces this coming week.   Neptune went into Pisces in 2011 and will stay there until 2026.

Neptune loves to be in Pisces. Neptune, the god of the seas, guides our soul voyages in oceanic Pisces. Neptune is considered the “ruler” of Pisces.

Pisces represents the flow of inner soul life, the kingdom within.   It is the music and magic of the soul realm. It is also a very nebulous realm, one that cannot easily be measured or controlled like the physical world.

As Mars and Mercury go into Pisces and make conjunction with Neptune this week, it is best to let go and surrender any tight agendas or missions of ambition.  It is best to trust more that which is out of your control.  If you push too much you will be tend to be frustrated and disappointed.  If you make intention, and then let the flow of the soul realm and Universe take over, you will have less stress.

So even though we are in Sun in Aquarius time of year now, the Pisces waves are already flowing in.  The Sun will not be in Pisces until February 18.

Use this influx of Neptunian and Piscean energies now to be imaginative and creative and to enter deeper levels of poetic metaphors of consciousness.  There may be a greater  desire to escape “reality” and to dream more. In fact, this is a good time to look more closely at your dreams for deeper meaning.  The inner world beckons, and so is the potential for healing.

On Sunday February 3, we begin the last quarter phase of the Moon, in Scorpio.  Increased intensity of emotion may threaten desires to stay safely in the bubble of your mind.

The last quarter Moon also brings a week of moving yin-ward into your feelings and slower activity.  The last quarter Moon is time to reflect, correct, and prepare before the next new moon.

And the next New Moon is in Aquarius on Sunday February 10 at 2:20 AM EST.  That day also brings the Chinese New Year of the Snake.  The snake symbolically fits perfectly with the coming year of great transformation here on Earth, as the snake sheds its skins and renews.

But this coming week, before the New Moon in Aquarius, as we move through the last quarter waning Moon, and experience the inner flow of Neptune and Pisces, we lay back and enjoy.  We allow ourselves to release, to release old wounds, to release our need to control.

There is plenty of big change and lots of fiery energies coming this Spring 2013.   But for now take the voyage into your inner waters of soul.

The Aquarian Age is getting stronger and stronger in that inner world, and you can contact it from your soul now.  Remember that it is our consciousness, and  our belief systems that first take us to new realms.  And that Aquarian Age can be found inside now, in our imaginations and visualizations.

Then when the storms blow in to take our collective ship out of the Old Age into the Aquarian Age, you will already see and know our destination.  That knowing will give you the hope and strength to make it through the storms.

I have created a new Astrology Forecast 2013 for youtube, part 1.  And Part 2

See you next week,

Leo
