Pluto Releasing the Old and Astrology Forecast April 22-28

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This past week we entered a whole New Chapter of both our collective  and personal lives.

That does not mean that it has been or will be smooth sailing now. In fact for many people there were already obstacles to work through after that New Moon in Aries last week.

Gravity ruling, “stop sign” Saturn was especially strong last week too. And though Mercury went Direct on the same day as the New Moon in Aries, for many people full clarity has not been found yet.

It takes Mercury several days after it has gone Direct to return to its usual speed, and during that time the fog may just slowly lift from our view ahead.

Make no mistake however, we have turned a corner, and are now moving forward in a new phase of life.

There is some purging to be done now, however, as Pluto has been slowing down in order to go Retrograde on Sunday April 22.

So we have been experiencing Pluto’s energy the last couple of days and will continue  to do so much of this coming week.

Pluto is a very passionate and intense ruler of the underworld, and as such brings us down into the subconscious so we can be more more conscious of what is needing to be experienced and hopefully released.

If you are drawn this week to look at the past, past events, and past patterns of thought and behavior, it is happening so you can release, let go of what is not in alignment in this New Chapter.

You do not need anymore the same old inner stories that have become heavy baggage in your consciousness and life.

So use this time now to let go of your grip on that which is weighing you down psychologically, emotionally, spiritually and/or physically.

We will in late Spring be moving much more rapidly through this New Chapter, which is in essence a new frequency and dimension in our consciousness.

But for this week, Pluto changes directions Sunday the 22nd, and then on Thursday the 26th Mars collides in conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn.  This is potentially a very intense and powerful meeting between these two planets.

And approximately 3 days before that Mars in Capricorn sextiles Jupiter in Scorpio.

Those two planetary events trigger the Jupiter sextile Pluto aspect of April 14, which formed a Yod or “finger of god” with the USA natal Mars. 

Less than a day before that Yod, Syria was bombed by western nations, which points the finger to potential war in the Middle East.

But on the contrary, peace ostensibly looks more promising in Korea, as North Korea made some big compromises prior to its coming meetings with South Korea and the USA.

This week North Korean and South Korean leaders meet in a summit on April 27.  With the triggering of the Yod this week, we will get a better sense of where the finger is pointing on the Korean Peninsula- toward or away from USA conflict.

Of course the issue of gun  ownership, and the issue of police killings of black men are also part of this turning point around the USA Mars in the “finger of god” alignment now. Pay close attention to what direction all these issues are turning toward this week.

In personal lives these Plutonian interactions will tend to bring up old stories and patterns, and could also bring up more volatile emotions, especially between people in relationships.

Please do your best to know these events are happening in order to help to purge what needs to be let go. Perhaps you may feel you are being taken back to old stuff you thought had been resolved or released already.

But what is coming up is not you going backwards, it is instead an opportunity for a deeper cleaning to occur inside your mind and soul.

Also the intensity may be rising in order to help you make transformational breakthroughs that are important on your path through this new phase of life.

The old energies, stories and patterns want to be transformed into new consciousness and ways, and you can be proactive in the process if you stay conscious and aware.

Is it not totally apparent now how much everything is shifting, changing, and transforming? It is beginning to feel like the ’60s and ’70s may have been mild in comparison.

This current wave of change is not for the opportunity to put bandages on old issues so we can later go back into the same old dysfunctional ways.

Our world is transforming in ways we cannot completely comprehend yet. And each of our lives is transforming as part of that process.

Relationships especially may be rocky now, as we navigate balancing our rapid individual growth with trying to stay connected in our relationships.

It may not be totally apparent how to achieve that balance or sometimes even to know whether the relationship will last.

Will the New Chapter keep you together or will it need to bring you on separate paths?

Some of you have already been given some indication which way that is turning now, but others need more time to be able to feel more certain.

This week has some volatility and releasing necessary, but also with the Taurus influence there is a firming up of what has previously begun.

Aries is a force for moving forward, like buds coming through the branches in springtime.

Yet Taurus, where the Sun and Venus are now, stabilizes and allows to blossom what has begun.  So for the most part the month of May will stabilize, manifest, and make more solid.

Then in June, with the energies of Gemini strong, we move faster forward through our New Chapter.  Events will pour much faster through that portal that was opened at the Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus on April 15.

That was a turning point weekend for us individually and globally.

In May/June we will have a much better sense of where the Trump investigations are going. We will also know much more where the Middle East is going and where the Korean situation is going. There are many important events already scheduled for those months for those issues.

This week also has some lighter energy coming in as Venus leaves Taurus and enters Gemini on Tuesday the 24th. It will stay in Gemini until May 19.

Venus in Gemini brings with it light social interaction, more mental agility in relating, a desire for more talking and communicating, and generally also more flirting and light teasing.

That should lighten the focused intensity this week that will also be present at the usually profound Full Moon experience on Sunday April 29. It is a Scorpio Full Moon which is also called the Wesak Full Moon, often related to the birth of Buddha and Buddha light rays coming through our human experience.

Contact Deborah Tallarico at moonsoul9@aol.com for more info on joining the online global ceremony at the Spiritual Renaissance Center for that Wesak Full Moon.

We will write more about that Scorpio Wesak Full Moon next week.

Always keep in mind that the transformation we are experiencing, as challenging as that  is sometimes, is bringing us into the consciousness and ways of the Age of Aquarius.

This New Chapter we have entered is an important vehicle in time that is moving us more strongly into the new dimensions and frequencies of that New Age.

Till next week,

Leo

Raising Consciousness and Astrology Forecast October 16-22

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 15, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we move closer to Scorpio time of year, intensity and primal passion are building inside our collective human souls.

The presidential election in the USA is already intense yet will get much more so.

Can you believe how low in consciousness Americans are going during this Election Season?

With so many important issues to discuss, the media and candidates are totally obsessed with sexual issues concerning Donald Trump and Bill Clinton.

Though to some extent it is good to address the women’s issues that have come out, and that are important for us as a human family;  this is more about character assassination and mean spirited attacks on one another.

It is no mere coincidence that Wikileaks is now increasing the email dirt against Clinton, while women have now decided a month before election to suddenly come out against Trump.

This is war- not an attempt to look at serious world and American issues.

As we get closer to the Sun moving into Scorpio on October 22 and a Scorpio New Moon on October 30, there are war drums beating that could potentially turn into World War III.

Russia and the USA are seriously challenging one another over Syria; while North Korea keeps testing more nuclear bombs; and forces gather to try to defeat the Islamic State in important Mosul Iraq.

If one tunes into all that or just feels deep inside the collective human unconscious, it is getting more and more apparent that something very big is about to explode in the world.

The only question in my mind is whether this will happen prior to the Election or after it.

Before the Election we have a Full Moon in forceful Aries conjuct Uranus on October 16;   aggressive Mars conjunct guardian of the underworld Pluto on October 19; Mars square Uranus on October 29; and a New Moon in Scorpio on October 30.

Any of these could be a trigger for an important world event, and at the least they suggest darker secrets to be exposed.

The Full Moon has the Sun in Libra opposing Moon conjunct Uranus in Aries at 12:23 AM October 16.

This annual Full Moon usually brings a conflict between desires to make relationship and make peace (Libra) versus a desire to be frank and assertive and thus potentially bring conflict (Aries).  Uranus conjunct the Moon in Aries suggests more weight toward impulsive forceful assertions.

In world events this brings the potential for serious conflict in the world over the next couple of weeks.

In personal lives this could be a wake-up call (Uranus) to transform old relationship patterns and to balance self empowerment (Aries) with a real listening in relationship (Libra).

Some people are very empowered already and need to be more sensitive to others.

Others are usually very accommodating of their mates or friends but tend to be rather small in asserting their own needs.

This Full Moon gives a real opportunity to strike a better balance and to change old relationship patterns that have proven not to work well.

Uranus gives the possibility to wake up outside the usual boxes of thought and to make the changes.

On Ocober 19 Mars conjuncts Pluto.  Conjunct means they share the same space in a 360 degree circle- in this case both at around 15 degrees of Capricorn.

Conjunct means they seek to bring their energies together and in this case in Capricorn. Capricorn wants to build or maintain solid structures or systems. Mars and Pluto together tend to create much potentially explosive power together. They can be ruthless when together.

This can create world conflicts through the ruthless power of the system, the state. or corporate or militay institutions.

In personal lives this can mean a powerful attempt to maintain or create controls.  Be careful this week not to get into power and control battles with others, as they could get nasty.

Instead use this Mars/Pluto aspect to make your self aware of authority or to assert your own authority.

On Saturday October 22 there is a 4th quarter Moon in Cancer as the Sun makes its annual move into Scorpio.

This may bring a feeling of being “brought down”.   Resist the temptation to get depressed, and instead use it to go deeper inside to see what is real and true for you.

Scorpio helps us to get in touch with deeper soul issues, to see inside the veils of secrecy.  It also helps us to find our passion and to honor our more primal instincts.

4th quarter Moons alert us to “wrap things up” and to prepare for the next new moon- this one to be in Scorpio on October 30.

We are in a collective transition into a whole new chapter of our lives.  The Election here in the USA is an obvious symbol that things are changing.

An important way to change is in consciousness.   If we keep trying to create enemies and keep trying to demonize others we stay locked in old consciousness.

Yes we need to create boundaries betwen what we believe and stand for, and what others believe and stand for.  But we do not need to make us the good guys, and them the bad guys.

It is a difference of opinion and lifestyle, not a reason to hate or destroy.

Till next week,

Leo

Endings and Beginnings and Astrology Forecast November 9-15

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 8, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we have spoken many times, this year 2014 has largely been about closing old chapters of our lives and getting ready to embrace new ones.

The Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year gave us the marking point for such powerful change in life.

The recent elections showed a desire for more conservative candidates by a large portion of the American electorate.  I believe this is because the new chapter of our collective life in America is provoking needs for security and bringing up fear in many people.

Back in the late ’60s life was going through such powerful change with a war in Viet Nam, a sexual revolution, changing gender roles, an often violent civil rights movement,  and in general a feeling of chaotic revolution and deep changes in how people live.

So who was elected president in 1968, at the height of the revolution? Richard Nixon was elected even though so many were wanting a new world that would be free of old rules that had chained people’s free hearts and minds to the jailhouse of a status quo System.

Opposed to this revolutionary movement was the silent majority, as it was called then. They needed to keep life as it had been. It was in grave fear that all the rules it counted on and lived by were rapidly being threatened to extinction.  There was even more prejudice and hatred then for those who were of color or were different from the norm, like gays and lesbians. The silent majority wanted women to be kept in their place, for men to stay dominant, sex to be secretive and old fashioned, and war to protect the “American way of life”.

But then there was also burning of bras, and military draft cards torn up, and race riots in the streets of many cities, and marijuana being used to open minds to new ways of thinking and being.  Rock music was defiantly opposed to the old ways. And the new generation of young people, for the first time maybe, were hostile to their parents and their parents’ values.

Yes back then we were in a very powerful time of change- into a new chapter of living in America and the world with the first glimmers of an Age of Aquarius. Yet at the same time many were getting more conservative in order to hold back the tides of change. And of course that is understandable as sometimes change is overwhelming.

Back then Uranus conjunct Pluto had been exact just two years prior, and its waves of change were still quite strong. Now in 2014, we are in the middle of Uranus square Pluto aspects and waves of change are quite strong again.

In Ferguson Missouri there have been riots to protest the killing of a young black man by police. Though we have made an African American man President of the United States there is still racial disharmony in America.

And now civil rights for gays and lesbians has been in the spotlight the last few years.  And there is war in Iraq again and Syria and threats in Ukraine and a new powerful entity called the Islamic State. And the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is a time bomb. And there is an Ebola virus that has brought great fear into the hearts of many.

And there is even more Corporate domination than ever before. Yet there is a sense felt by most tuned-in people that we are on the cusp of enormous change that will affect all of our lives.

So yes many are fearful and want the a dam to be built to hold back the waves of change. And the recent vote, as back when Nixon was elected, reflects that attitude.

Keep in mind, however, that not many years after that election in 1868, the war was ended and Nixon was impeached, and a whole new culture was born.

And now the great wave is here again  to help us to continue in our evolution.

That evolution was put on hold after the ’60s and 70s as we needed more grounding and also to integrate new electronic advances that would be aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

There has since been a conservative revolution led by Ronald Reagan that brought some needed pull-back and grounding to our consciousness and lives.  And then there was a most important internet and computer revolution that has changed all of our lives in a huge way.

And America has since become an Empire and Superpower, with the Military-Industrial complex that worried President Eisenhower more dominant than ever before.

Counter to that are people all over the world wanting freedom from Corporate and Military controls on their lives, wanting freedom from Governmental controls on their lives.

And much of the changes in the world this year since the Cardinal Grand Cross (which included Uranus and Pluto) is meant to begin to break the chains and bring us to new personal and collective chapters of our lives- on the road to the Age of Aquarius.

And now this week we begin to finish up Autumn Eclipse Season 2014,  a season that is meant to help us end that old chapter of our lives and embrace more the new phase of our lives.

But now as we have moved through a potent Taurus/Scorpio Full Moon from this last week, we are largely facing endings and feeling sadness for days gone by.  It is hard sometimes to let go of the past, even when we know it is time.

We install life-support systems in our minds and hearts, and hold on for dear life.   Death of the old can bring up great fear in us, and we can go through the stages of dying in our minds, like denial and rage and trying to make a deal with God to change the inevitable.

This coming week brings a big turning point in our transformational journey this year. The eclipses from Autumn Eclipse season have passed, and Mercury is back direct again.

That last eclipse, a Solar Eclipse New Moon from October 23, began a lunar cycle that came to climax this past week with the Full Moon. Now this week begins a waning path through the last half of that lunar cycle.  And then we move fast forward at the New Moon in Sagittarius on November 22.

So this week, as the lunar cycle begins the fading half of its journey, we encounter an important set of aspects:  Mars this week conjuncts Pluto on November 10, and squares Uranus on November 12, effectively triggering the Uranus/Pluto square.

Then on November 13 Mars will trigger the exact point of the exact Cardinal Grand Cross from mid April of this year.

This in an important turning point week globally and personally, as we will be prompted to accept the reality of our lives now and to move on. Old issues will come back so we can finish what we started.

Globally the Ferguson racial issue may come to a head again as the Grand Jury there decides if the policeman who killed the young man will be indicted. The meetings between Iran and the Powers that Be of the world concerning Iran’s nuclear programs are coming to an end, and decisions will be made on how to resolve the standoff- or not resolve it. Other Middle East conflicts will be in the spotlight again, and already the Ukraine/Russian conflict has come back again as there are claims Russia has invaded Ukraine once more.

Personally and globally, any issues that have not been resolved or completed, are likely to come back up in our consciousness and lives again.

Do you stay on the path you have previously chosen or not? Can you truly go back? For most this turning point will help them to move on and to get off any fences of indecision they have been sitting on. It is time to complete what was started and to know more completely what direction to move in.

One thing to know for sure, you are right where you need to be now. All has happened for a reason and there is no need to blame your self or others for what has happened. It has been time to end old chapters and seasons and begin new ones, no matter who has done what. “Coulda, woulda, shoulda” ruminations do not matter except to help you to learn from your mistakes for the future.

We are moving into an Age of Aquarius, and that is a big new season in our future. The new chapter this year is to move us one step closer to that reality. And keep in mind that those who voted last week to hold the line on such powerful change reflect a very human desire to feel safe.

See you next week,

Leo

Illusion or Awakening and Astrology Forecast July 28- August 3

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 27, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The week ahead will bring a combination of many different and contradictory energies.    We will be in the last 10 days before a very energized ignition of new beginnings at the New Moon in Leo on August 6.  

Time before a new moon usually brings us to a winding down, some introspection, and preparing for the new beginnings at the new moon.    And of course this last 10 days before an especially important New moon in Leo will have some of that slowing down quality.

And a Grand Sextile alignment on Monday July 29 will add to the feeling of “down and in” and not “up and out”.  There are 6 planets in sextile to one another that day, all six of those planets in yin signs:  Moon in Taurus, Jupiter in Cancer, Venus in Virgo, Saturn in Scorpio, Pluto in Capricorn, and Neptune in Pisces.    These are all water and earth signs, energies that are yinward and inward signs.

So combined with our also moving into the last quarter of the lunar cycle that day, there is a rather slow and “down” movement.  And with only the Sun and Uranus in fire signs, there is not much zest represented either.

Yet counter to those perhaps depressing energies for some, there is a very energized and powerful planetary movement also.  Mars will be triggering the Uranus Pluto square as it opposes Pluto in Capricorn on Saturday/Sunday and squares Uranus in Aries Tuesday through Thursday.

So be very careful not to get too angry or out of control the next several days, as those Mars movements to the transformational planets Uranus and Pluto will tend to shake things up in a powerful way.

Whereas the Grand Sextile and last quarter Moon will tend to flat line you emotionally and spiritually, the Mars movements will activate you and tend to bring more powerful energies.

Overall this coming week will tend to awaken you to Truth, to core reality, and should motivate you to get moving forward with your life.    There may be some disillusion mixed in with the awakening to what is real and true, some disappointment with people, with life, and situations in your life.

That awakening will help you to let go of people or situations or old patterns that will now strike you as impossible to continue.   You will understand at a deeper level than before why it is insane to do things the same way over and over again and keep expecting better results than are possible.

The situations, decisions, and events that happen this week could have long lasting effects on your life.  The next week, starting at the New Moon in Leo on August 6, there will be a more fast pace of action.   Jupiter will be strongly aspecting the Pluto/Uranus revolutionary and evolutionary square at that time, thrusting lives more fast forward.

Whatever was shaken up and out and began to be seeded during Spring Eclipse Season April-June this year, will soon find its way forward in reality and manifestation.

In the Greater World events are erupting that are changing our world.  In Egypt, as Mars is now igniting the Uranus/Pluto square, there is growing violence and chaos that will change not only Egypt in a big way, but also the Middle East and the world.

More and more whistleblowers like Snowden and Assange and Bradley will come forward to expose previously held secrets and expose more truths of corruption and dominance from Corporate and Government institutions.

America and Israel will flex their military muscles more in Syria in order to gain more control of the strategic and resource rich Middle East.   This region of the world will likely ignite the spark of worldwide transformation out of an old age of superpowers and Empires and into a world of Diversity in Unity.

We are also in the beginning stages of spiritual renaissance for the human family on Earth, as we learn there are many different dimensions of reality, beings who dwell on inner planes of spirit, and beings who dwell in many other places in the Universe.

What we have come to rely on as Reality is in large part a collective consensus programmed into our minds and hearts.  As we move through the old age and that dying paradigm of reality, we awaken to new wonders.

So it is OK to grieve the death of our illusions, the passing of our innocence  to what kind of people and institutions have been running our world, and what kind of lies we have believed.

These disillusions will help us to trust our own minds and hearts more and more, not the mainstream institutions anymore.  The Universe has provided us in recent times with the internet, a place we can still find information and do research outside the dominance of the Matrix.

Slowly but surely, but faster all the time, we are trusting our own individual perception of reality; and as we do that more and more as a collective human family, we change our reality and usher in the Age of Aquarius.

How did we ever get fooled into believing that certain people are better and deserve more than others.   Why did we buy into the idea of emperors or kings and queens or dictators or wealthy people or aristocracy running our lives and world?  Historically many of these people are decadent, corrupt, and murderous and have created a world of their rules that perpetuates their wealth and power.

The Earth and our human family of souls will obviously be better off when we the people wake up and take full responsibility.   As we evolve beyond the old paradigm of separation and survival of the fittest mentality, as we evolve beyond a war of the sexes, as we evolve beyond believing in superior/inferior, as we evolve beyond perpetrator/victim consciousness, and as we evolve beyond trying to defeat darkness, we then know the Oneness of All That Is.   We enter Diversity in Unity. We enter the Age of Aquarius.

See you next week,

Leo

Moving Out of the Fog as Mercury Goes Direct and Astrology Forecast July 21-27

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 20, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this forecast Saturday July 20, Mercury has slowed down while Retrograde into stationary position, and is about to go back Direct at 2:22 PM. 

This has been a rather difficult Mercury Retrograde for most people, and many are sighing a big sense of relief.   It may take, however, a few more days before you feel completely out of the woods and into the blue skies of mental clarity.

So feel the transition today, but still be careful of your thinking and communicating process.  Do you remember November 2000, on the night of the Presidential Election between Gore and Bush II?  That night Mercury was moving from Retrograde back to Direct, and there was all sorts of confusion about who won, back and forth on the announcements by the mainstream media.

It is usually not that mentally challenging as Mercury changes back to Direct, but I am sure you get the message that clarity of mind can be illusive when Mercury is first changing back to Direct.

But soon Mercury will get back to “normal” Direct speed, and you will know the difference.    During this transition of Mercury, there will shifts in both the solar and lunar cycles also.

The Sun shifts from Cancer to Leo on Monday, and there is a Full Moon in Aquarius a short two hours later at 2:07 PM EDT.  And to add to the shifting planetary tides, Mars makes a very emotionally energized conjunction with Jupiter in Cancer.

Most recently, with the Grand Trine in Water and Saturn shifting to Direct, there has been a slow heavy density to move through, and unsettling emotions to deal with, along with Mercury Retrograde’s mental challenges.

The Sun’s movement out of Cancer and into Leo brings us needs to be more creative and spontaneous, to have more fun, and to play.   The Sun in Leo then meets up in opposition to the Moon in Aquarius, making a Full Moon.

That Full Moon combines the Sun in Leo need to trust one’s open and creative heart with the Moon in Aquarius need to trust one’s mind to inventively think one’s way through a situation.  Heart versus Head is keynote for this Full Moon.

Mars conjunct Jupiter in Cancer initiates a very energized time period coming up, when we will be moving forward, out of the reflective, angst ridden time period we have been slogging through the last several weeks.

Things will be begin to open up this week, but you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

From this week though much of August, powerful energies moving us fast forward will be expressed.

First Mars, and then even more intensely Jupiter, will be making a T-Square with the volatile, transformational, evolutionary and revolutionary Uranus/Pluto square.

The balls of change will begin to roll between now and August 6. Then after August 6 at the New Moon in Leo, as Jupiter opposes Pluto, movement forward will accelerate.

If you have been waiting for awhile, especially since the shakeups of the Spring Eclipse Season, to get going with a new chapter of your life, to move forward into new beginnings; the time is soon coming.

If you already have entered that new chapter of your life, but still have not seen the Go Light for full entrance into it, that light will soon shine.

August should open windows of awakening and doorways of new life ventures.   Some of this shift may bring more chaotic energy with it also, helping us to shed the past and welcome the future.

In the greater world, the Middle East is continuing to brew with powerful change coming.  Secretary of State for the USA, John Kerry, has instigated talks between Israel and Palestine.   This is a most important issue to be worked out in the Middle East.  Its resolution would bring greater peace to the region and world.

But of course people have been trying for many, many years to find resolution of the Israeli/Palestinian issue.  To no avail.   Even just the start of these talks, however, will turn so many wheels turning  throughout the region and world.

The conditions of volatile Egypt and Syria will be shifting in a big way as the Israeli/Palestinian issue moves forward.   Israel’s desires to attack Iran will also be influenced by these peace efforts between Israel and Palestine.

The powerful transformation of this region will accelerate during the month of August 2013.

Of course the culture wars in the USA have been ignited with the Trayvon Martin killing, and trial of George Zimmerman.  Nevertheless, we know that the election of President Barack Obama brought a sense of optimism for race relations in the USA.

And while that election certainly showed us that there has been great progress in race relations since the ’60s civil rights movement, this trial showed us there is still much to be done.

African Americans, the only group of people who came to this land of immigrants in chains, have a sensitivity to racial injustice and racial sterotyping beyond what others can imagine.

Imagine that your ancestors were slaves in this country. Really imagine that.   Not coming to liberation from English oppression on the Mayflower, and not coming to find opportunity and religious freedom from Europe in the early 20th century, but treated like animals and dragged here.

It is true that it has been over a hundred and fifty years since emancipation during the civil war, and it is true that racial prejudice goes both ways.    And it is true that we all need to know we are all one family, moving toward Diversity in Unity for the Age of Aquarius.

But it is also true that programmed deep in the consciousness of some people, both black and white in America, is that blacks are inferior and have criminal tendencies, and that whites will ruthlessly keep black people down.

This is part of an old paradigm that is dying with an old age.  The ’60s revolution, with Uranus conjunct Pluto, brought us the civil rights movement. Uranus square Pluto, now moving through our world, will clear up the remnants of what is left of our old racial paradigm.

The Zimmerman case shows us we still need to clear up our stereotypes, judgments, and prejudices.   In its wisdom our Universe brings to light that which we need to release and that which we need to evolve into.

This collective mindset and belief system still needs more rays of healing and transformation for many.     As you look at young people in this country, however, you see the hope for that Age of Aquarius future. So many are color blind, as the worst years of  violent racial division get more and more dim in memory.

Keep in mind, however, whether we are talking about an individual or a culture or country, when transformational energies are strong we face our demons again.

Whatever is left from old traumas comes back into our consciousness, sometimes in “ugly” ways, and gives us an opportunity to do more inner work, to release old wounds, to heal from our past, and to access more awakening light into our souls and minds.

We then evolve our consciousness and change our lives for the better, for ourselves, others and the world.

Stay aligned and present, centered in your heart, and open to the voice of the Universe. And all is well.

See you next week,

Leo

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

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,

Leo
