Shifting tides this week with Mars entering Capricorn, New Moon  in Pisces, Spring Equinox and Mercury Retrograde.

This means the energy fields we move within are changing this week.  The changes will shift our consciousness and lives in preparation for the Portal Opening on April 15.

It is obvious now that the greater world and culture we reside within is in a chaotic and not so predictable state of being.   The White House is reflective of this state of being, and it is in shambles, and always in some sort of transition.

And of course whether you feel in alignment with the new Administration or not, this Administration and its volatility are a symbol of the condition of the USA right now.

The Stock Market and economy; the Mueller probe; the porn actress’s accusations; the growing dangers with Iran, Syria, Israel, North Korea; the trade wars; and the macho strutting with Russia and China put all of us on our toes waiting for even greater changes.

We are in the midst of an enormous transformation of the country and world.

Trump is not causing the chaotic climate that makes us ripe for such transformation. He is instead a lead actor on the world stage, just the right actor to help facilitate world events that will take us to the edge of darkness,  so we can call on the Phoenix who will rise from the ashes of our old paradigm’s burning.

Some are already getting into survivalist mode, while others not as alarmed are  still being called to make changes in their consciousness and lives, changes that are aligned with the world we are moving into.

Others of us are not sure what direction to move toward, and are seemingly waiting for events to unfold to show the way.

The next few weeks will not show us clear direction, however, especially so because Mercury is going Retrograde on March 22 at 8:19 PM EDT.

As usual the ‘re’s will in charge during Mercury Retrograde: rewind, reflect, readjust, rebalance, remind, realign.

There is much processing to do now, as it is not time now to move toward bottom line decisions and even bottom line logical answers.

Allow Mercury Retrograde to have you go inward to reflect, to question what has been previously understood or decided, to bring to you memories of the past and to bring back people to you from your past.

The people from the past will likely not stay with you after they return, though sometimes they do.  The questioning of previous understandings and decisions does not mean you will truly change your direction from what you have chosen, but sometimes it does.

The New Moon in Pisces this Saturday the 17th was at 9:12 AM EDT.  Though it is a New Moon, Pisces is not a sign of action to move forward.

Pisces brings everything together in integration and unity, to get ready for the movement forward later, this time after the New Moon in Aries on April 15.

Pisces is the sign for the last month of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the transition sign for moving into new beginnings of Spring.

As such we now do soul searching, shadow integration, and getting in touch with deeper feelings;  especially feelings of sadness and grief, of fading memories, of snapshots of previously not remembered early life events.

We face ghosts of the past,  want to resolve old issues, and hopefully find some closure.

This Pisces time we are doing even deeper soul diving than usual, wanting to gather everything together in anticipation of the coming forward movement in our lives, collectively and personally.

There may be some energetic confusion as we also experience the beginning of spring this week.  It is on Tuesday March 20 at 12:15 PM EDT.

This is the first moment of the Sun’s movement into Aries, as it does to begin every Spring Equinox.

Aries is the force of new life buds bursting through the branches. It is a baby being born, a teenager’s awkward movement form childhood to adulthood.  It is a new challenge, a competition, showing a new way, standing up for yourself or what you believe in, being brave even when you are afraid,  fighting the good fight, self assertion, self honoring, alpha attitude, and taking action.

The confusion may come from the fact that Mercury is going Retrograde and there is a need to process and rewind before truly moving forward.

So use this Spring Equinox Aries entry to begin to wake yourself up! Winter is over, even if the weather still feels like Winter.  The turning point energetically is happening this week, so get in touch with that energy and wake your self from the doldrums of Winter, from being kinda depressed from such a harsh and difficult winter.

No need to go fast forward, just wake up. Soon there will be the need for action and for fresh events to manifest. But not now. Even action oriented Mars is being affected by the gravity of Capricorn now.

It moved into Capricorn on the 17th at the New Moon in Pisces. It will stay in Capricorn until May 16, when it goes into Aquarius.

But this year Mars will go back into Capricorn from mid August till Mid September.

The reason is because Mars goes Retrograde on June 26, then retraces its previous steps.

Mars in Capricorn takes away the spontaneous and sometimes impulsive instinct of Mars.

Mars puts on a uniform of military or police when in Capricorn, giving it discipline and boundaries, rules and structure to act within.

So with Mars now in Capricorn, it is time to ground your actions, to make goals and commitments, to organize and plan, to make manifest.

Just remember that we are in Mercury Retrograde until April 15, so there may be some confusion till then, and if you are not that confused, you will still need to wait before manifesting or making absolute statements.

After April 15 the train of our lives starts it engines, but remember that Mercury will just begin to be Direct that day, so total clarity may still need to form, and movement will still not be fast forward. Big events will likely be a few weeks or a few months away then.

So with all this knowledge look at the country and world.  The White House will still be rearranging the deck chairs of its Titanic voyage.

There  will be more employee firings and hirings this coming month, more drama and confusion, more setting the stage for coming events.

Trump is planning to meet with Kim Jong Un in April or May; the USA is moving its embassy to Jerusalem in May. Other important world events will spring forward in April, May and later this year.

Your life and consciousness are working out  what needs to be worked out now. Do your best not to judge your self now or what you did or didn’t do in the past.

Let go of old stories that keep you stuck.  Let go of old stories that make you feel like a victim or loser or failure or horrible person.

The past, no matter what it was, is a stepping stone for your life as it grows and transforms into one of purpose and authenticity, one of love and forgiveness.

Love yourself from all time periods and ages of your life. Have compassion for your self, for the seeming mistakes you might have made. Forgive yourself and others as best you can organically.

It is almost time for us all to move forward more fully into this New Chapter of our lives on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

And the less baggage we take with us from our past the better.  No you will not be able to tie a pretty bow on all those traumas and disappointments, disillusions and heart wounds.

But you can forgive, learn to trust enough, and have faith all happens with meaning.

You can gain enough closure to be able to move forward. But do not despair if all has not been worked out to total satisfaction. It never is perfect.

Till next week,

Leo

Seeing Clearly as Mercury goes Direct and Astrology Forecast October 26- November 1

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 25, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

Though we just passed through the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on Thursday, which is the last eclipse of this eclipse season, we will remain in the throes of the intensity for some time longer.

Since the next exact meeting of Uranus square Pluto is not until December 15, we can expect Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 to extend through to the Winter Solstice, a longer than usual Eclipse Season.

There is a turning point in the process now, however, as Mercury is going Direct pretty much as I write this forecast, on Saturday October 25 at 3:17 PM EDT.

So as the Scorpio Solar Eclipse has just passed, and Mercury goes Direct today, truth is an unavoidable reality.

Scorpio plows right down into the core of truth, the deeper truth that can free us from our chains of egoic control.

And Mercury now going Direct after 3+ weeks of being Retrograde, gives us the beginning of finding the light of clarity at the end of the dark tunnel of unknowing.

It may take a few more days to a week before we are totally confident we are seeing and thinking clearly, and before we can truly accept on a deeper level the truth that has revealed itself.

This year, since the Cardinal Grand Cross of spring, we have been thrust into an important new chapter or phase of our lives.  Events, awakenings, and realizations have shown us a dying past, closed doors of that which is not aligned with our authentic soul self, and open doors and windows bringing the fresh air of new ways forward.

And this current Autumn Eclipse Season, while Mercury has been retrograde, has forced us to look deeper for truth in order to find clear direction forward.

And what matters is what is on our true soul path, a path that is aligned with the connections showing Oneness, while at the same time the truth of who we each really are in essence, with no more lying and trying to be what we are not.

This turning point now to more clarity and truth is a difficult one for some, as there has been an avoidance of letting go of that which they have been holding onto so strongly.

Life support systems onto co-dependent relationships or empty security structures will no longer work in our hearts or lives anymore.

But this is no time to rush forward or be impulsive with our actions.  We can spend a bit more time processing before we know for sure, and when we do act and make decision, we can do that in a thoughtful and deliberative way now.

Mars moves out of fiery and expansive Sagittarius this Sunday October 26 and into grounded and real Capricorn, where it will stay until December 4.  This will help us to face and make real and to manifest that which was previously merely an idea or inspiration.  There is no more running away. It is time soon to do what needs to be done.

So this coming week may bring more clarity and direction, but for some also a more sobering look at one’s life issues.

And on Friday October 31 is Samhain, the ancient predecessor and inspiration for Halloween. It is a sacred turning point that is approximately half way between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.

And our more deeply “tuned in” ancestors experienced the fact that the veil between worlds is thinner around Samhain.   You may hear or “see” spirits.  You may catch glimpses of spirits out of the corner of your eye now.

And if you do ritual to honor ancestors, you may be able to contact those who have left their material bodies.

Then on November 1, also known as All Saints Day in Catholicism, we get ready to turn back our clocks.  We will then experience shorter days of being awake while it is light outside.  And temperatures are getting colder.

This prompts us to look within more, as the outside is not so appealing for many.  Christ said that “The Kingdom is Within” and so  now we can move more in that direction, the direction of the “unknown” and mysterious, but also the direction of soul unity and connectedness.

And as we recognize the inner kingdom and experience the love at the heart of that kingdom, we know that whatever events are erupting in the greater world can be seen and felt through the frequency of connectedness.

Yes this last week, as there was a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, brought us many very dark events:  A “terrorist” attack in the Canadian Parliament.  Another violent attack in a high school just outside Seattle, an ax attack on police in New York, serious riots in Jerusalem, and a killing of police in northern California.

Add these to the Ebola scare, Islamic State, a volatile stock market, etc. and it would be easy to get into fear zone.

Scorpio brings up the shadows in individuals and in society, so we can then deal with our demons, release toxic energies and patterns, and look for ways to transform our lives.

In the greater world, we are having lights shine on our shadow demons, on our mistakes, on our karma.

The Islamic State is not mainly about religion, but about power and about old grudges and injustices from the past.

The killing sprees in schools and other mainstream venues show us what needs to be addressed in our society.  Issues of guns, mental health, and of a general decay in society need to be addressed more seriously. These cannot be solved by people who are wanting to satisfy political agendas, but by people who want to end old patterns that destroy our human family and Earth and its creatures.

We are living out a paradigm of separateness and “every man for himself”, of his family or country or religion.  Evolution now is dependent on seeing me and mine more inclusively.  My family is all of humanity.  That consciousness of oneness is mandatory if we are to evolve our consciousness into an Age of Aquarius.

Though this movement into an Age of Aquarius is part of the natural cycles of Nature and the Universe; nevertheless we choose what that means for our human family here on Earth.   Do we as a collective transform our consciousness and lives into one of seeing all as equal and developing a Diversity in Unity world with Love and Truth as our foundation to build on? Or not?

We are at a crossroads now, over the next year or longer.  Events will take us more to “the edge” so we can know deep in our souls the reality we are facing, the consciousness we need to attain, the lives we need to live.

And our next spike of intensity will be early to mid November, as Mars in Capricorn triggers the Uranus/Pluto square. That square will be exact again on December 14/15, just days before Winter Solstice.

As you get more clarity now and over the next few days after Mercury Direct, commit your self more deeply to your spiritual path and your personal evolution.  We are All in this together, whether we acknowledge it or not.

See you next week,

Leo
