By Leo Knighton Tallarico

On Sunday July 16 we enter- for a week- the 4th quarter and last quarter of the lunar cycle. This lunar cycle began at the New Moon in Cancer on June 23.  And it ends next Sunday July 23 at the Leo New Moon.

This passing lunar cycle has been a time of finding nurturance, support, feelings of home, family, and inner wholeness.

At the Leo New Moon on the 23rd of July, there will be a shift.  That Leo New Moon brings in the first winds of Eclipse Season, and will shift our energies into more fiery creative self expression, more action, more hope, and greater motivation to “succeed”.

Yet the 4th quarter time this week, which precedes that Leo New Moon, , the first of two Leo New Moons in a row, will be more energized and active than most 4th quarter time periods.

That is because this 4th quarter begins with the Moon in active willful Aries; then continues with the often chaotic Mars square Uranus this Monday the 17th; Sun squaring Uranus on the 20th while Mars goes into Leo; and the Sun moving into Leo a couple days before the New Moon in Leo.

4th quarter lunar cycles are a time of “coming down”, finishing up, gathering, cleaning up, and getting ready for the new beginnings of a New Moon.

And of course that theme continues for this 4th quarter lunar cycle, but there will also be more energy for that “finishing up” purpose this week.

And of course since this is a getting ready for Eclipse Season, there also should be more stirring up, and the beginnings of seeing what Eclipse Season might be like for each of us.

I know some people get scared about these Eclipse Seasons, but having consciously experienced many of them through the years, I can assure you that usually they are not as bad as many fear.

Yes for sure most of us will be taken out of our usual balance, will be shifting in consciousness and energetically, will release and let go some things, and will be more ready for handling change.

But most will not lose their jobs, relationships, or homes during an Eclipse Season. And they will not be destroyed and die.  And the world will not come to an end.

Yet for sure this Eclipse Season will at least be a turning point time in our individual lives, and of course in our global experience too.

There will likely be an experience of getting over the hump and knowing there is no path to going back to how it used to be.  Our New Chapter in life is becoming our “new normal” and we need to own that.

In our global experience, the Trump factor has been changing our world appreciably, and on the surface it looks pretty bad.  Remember in the bigger picture he is the vehicle for this transformation that our human family needs right now in order to wake up and make the needed changes.

America is in the process of  becoming an equal member of nations, which aligns with the Age of Aquarius.

I am sure most of you wish it would be happening in a way that didn’t make the country an embarrassment in the world, and didn’t put us in such a dangerous position; yet this is how it needs to be right now.

Our country and world have been coasting without awareness through a dysfunctional and toxic human condition for a long time now.  The values of this country have been eroding for many years, but so slowly that many have not been paying attention.

Now more and more people are waking up and seeing, feeling and knowing that our human family is in real trouble.   Deep transformation and healing are urgently needed.

And this Eclipse Season, whatever events it brings to us, will show us how much we need to make big important changes.

Our economy is not equitable and all too often the greedy are the ones most rewarded in this system. Bernie Sanders represented a waking up of the people in the USA to lack of balance and fairness in the economy.

Will the stock market crash happen during or not long after this coming Eclipse Season? Better chance than usual it will.

But if not now, it will happen relatively soon, before summer of 2018 in my estimation.  And Eclipse Seasons, as they represent often drastic change, give us a better chance of something like that happening.

And the Military, the other half of the Economic/Military complex that largely rules this world,  will show change this Eclipse Season, especially so as the USA Mars is triggered by transiting Saturn; Trump and Netanyahu’s Mars’ are triggered by the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo, and Israel’s Mars is also triggered by the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21.

Does this mean there is serious conflict brewing? Probably yes.  It does not, however, necessarily mean actual war will erupt soon.   But it has a greater likelihood being triggered during or soon after the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo than usual.

The Military/Economic complex that President Eisenhower warned us about is more powerful than ever, and it must be transformed somehow in order for us to evolve into what is needed for the coming Age of Aquarius.

We can only pray it happens as gracefully as possible.

Whether gracefully or not, Trump sure shows us more likelihood of its dismantling.  He is like Caligula or Nero as the Roman Empire began to dissolve.

But, nevertheless, each of us needs to put our concentration on transforming our own consciousness and life.

As you let go of the programming from society and family of your mind and heart, you transform and evolve.

As  you awaken to truth, you evolve and transform.

As you trust that you live in a meaningful and sometimes magical Universe you transform and evolve.

As you open to your authentic Self, and to living a more purposeful life, you transform and evolve.

As you realize we are all brothers and sisters of the same human family, you transform and evolve.

As you extricate yourself from believing that being rich and famous is the holy grail, you transform  and evolve.

As you let go the consciousness of superior/inferior, predator/prey and victim/perpetrator for our human condition you transform and evolve.

As you know love is the true healer, you transform and evolve.

As you know we all live in a meaningful Universe, you evolve and transform.

As you realize all is connected, all seeming opposites are meant to be joined in wholeness like the yin/yang symbol,  you transform and evolve.

As you experience that Soul is real and guides our life journey, you transform and evolve.

And now the transformation is accelerated, as during Eclipse Seasons the wheels of the Universe turn with more music, light, love, and magic than usual.

It is the blocks to that light that hold everything back and cause breakdowns and difficulties.

When we  trust and surrender, we better allow our blocks to be cleared, so that the music, light, love and magic can come pouring through.

And next Sunday the 23rd begins the Eclipse Season with the New Moon in Leo.

Talk with you then,

Leo

We will do a video in July for the important August Total Solar Eclipse and Eclipse Season.  We will have a new website up to view in July also.

There is a video now of my recent talk at the Enlightenment Expo that my friend Jonne Trees has recorded:     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D52FYcHTM3U.

The subject is about navigating the planetary changes this year.

Please take a look at the video David Lonebear Sanipass and I created recently- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W2WIRHQ5IQ

Combining Head and Heart and Astrology Forecast August 9-15

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 8, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are working our way through an important turning point in our lives.  This past week, since Saturn went Direct  on August 2, has brought us to a shift in our consciousness and life.  For some this may be rather subtle energetically, but for others it is much more obvious.

Perhaps something has come to light that you were not fully aware of before; or perhaps an event happened that turned your thinking; perhaps someone else has revealed something about themselves or you that you were not fully aware before.  Maybe a light switch went on in your mind or heart that shows you the way to go now.

This turning point time period will give way to a sense of new beginnings after the New Moon in Leo on Friday August 14.  That New Moon will be at 10:53 AM EDT.

The lunar cycle begun at this New Moon in Leo will lead to a very important lunar cycle that will begin at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 13.  The Solar Eclipse will be followed by a powerful Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on September 27.  That is called by some a Blood Moon as it is the 4th Lunar Eclipse in row that is a Total Lunar Eclipse, a rare occurrence.

And all 4 of these Total Lunar Eclipses happen on sacred Jewish dates.

And this turning point we are moving through now- included Saturn going Direct while making close aspect to Jupiter, Venus and Mercury- all right at Israel’s natal Mars placement.

So something is really stirring around Israel.  And this last week during this turning point time, much has been happening with the Iranian nuclear deal, a deal that is passionately opposed by Israel.

One of Israel’s top officials commented this past week that Israel is considering bombing Iran’s nuclear facilities regardless of this deal that was struck with UN countries.

That would likely touch off a major Middle East and perhaps world conflict.

Iraq, Libya, and Syria are suffering largely because of foreign invasions or influences, and the Islamic State is strongly influential now in those and other countries in the Middle East.

And President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran is also being challenged by hawkish elements in the USA Congress, in Iran, in Israel and other countries.

Look for more clues, signs and synchronicities this week to tell you what may be coming to the Middle East and elsewhere during the upcoming Eclipse Season.

And this is also true for your own life.   The turning point time period will shift into Drive Gear at the New Moon in Leo on August 14.  But before Friday keep in mind we are in the last quarter phase of the Moon’s cycle.

So this week before the New Moon in Leo, we will be picking up the emotional pieces from the last few weeks, processing our experiences, and getting ourselves ready for renewed action and greater intensity.  Do your best to not let energies of depression control you before this New Moon, but nevertheless allow your soul to come down into its truth even if that truth will tend to “bring you down”.

We have been getting more into our heart and its wisdom and connections during these last few weeks.  With a New Moon in Leo and Mars going into Leo on Saturday August 8, there is still going to be a strong focus on heart and creative energies.

What makes your heart sing, what and whom is your heart into, how much can you open your heart to express the authentic being that you are by nature?   How much can you improve your self expression and self esteem- enough to put the controlling ego in the back seat of your life?

But along with this heart emphasis we will be integrating the earthy mental vibes of Virgo. Mercury went from Leo to Virgo this last Friday August 7 and Jupiter will enter Virgo (where it will stay for about a year) this Tuesday August 11.

Virgo is the sign after Leo, and as such it tends to humble the Lion’s big roar of pride.  Virgo can also bring some shame to the bravado of Leo, its self focus and its big hearted honesty.  Sometimes big hearted honesty can hurt others like when a little child passes an overweight person and says “look mommy at that fat man”.   Honest and innocent but not aware of its affect on others.

So be ready as we begin to get more Virgo influence of needing to combine more your head with your heart.  Your head is your heart’s important advisor and needs to be consulted on important matters.  And with Mercury ruling the head of mind and communication, its loves to be in Virgo.

Virgo analyzes, finds “what’s wrong with this picture”?, and generally brings one down into the details of cold reality.

So watch for “reality” to begin to come more into play now, and for a greater need to fix or heal what has been broken or injured.

Jupiter in Virgo will make expansive energies be more grounded in practical and logical ways. Inspiration will need to combine with needs to manifest, not just fly into new ideas that are never earthed.

There will need to be more order to one’s aspirations and dreams.

This may sound like a “downer” to some free spirits. But if you want your spirit to serve your purposes for being here on this Earth at this important time, then you will get some help over the next year to make that more real.

Keep in mind also this week that Venus is still Retrograde and will be until September 6.  At this turning point time period, there will tend to be new insights and light shone on important relationships and their patterns and habits.

As you move through this New Moon in Leo, you will be driving your life car forward even if you do not completely know what has recently shifted in your important relationships.  Since the turning point is passing, this New Moon will be bringing you forward into a more certain relationship destiny, even if much still needs to be revealed to your conscious mind.

Till next week,

Leo

Getting it Together and Astrology Forecast August 25-31

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 24, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It is Sun in Virgo time of year, the transitional last month of summer before Autumn Equinox.  It is apt that at Virgo time of year school starts up again, as Virgo represents the need for “getting it together”, getting to work, and putting order in our lives.    It is time to at least begin to think about what needs to be repaired or fixed or healed.

Virgo is the Virgin, which is not directly related to sex.  Astrologically it is more about wanting purity or perfection.  And Virgo is great at finding what is impure or “what is wrong with this picture” in order to know what needs to be fixed to make things more pure or perfect.   It has a most critical eye, a talent for discrimination and discernment.  It often is most critical of itself, and can obsess on some fault or actually can obsess on most anything it puts its mind to.

Virgo needs order and simplification, and can be incredibly efficient.    As an earth sign, it likes to keep things “close to the ground” and does not like emotions or spirits or ideas to be out of control or “flying too high”.

It is skeptical by nature, in its head, and is good at analyzing and intellectually processing.   From that place it can get very locked in to what it is thinking about or focused on.

Virgo is also a mutable sign, and can be lead by others, not usually wanting to take charge or push anything.    It instead can be satisfied being of service and doing what needs to be done.

Virgo comes right after dramatic Leo, so instead is learning to be humble and not ostentatious.   Leo roars and Virgo is best being modest and “low-key”.

Please do not look for all Virgos to be tidy and neat.  All Virgos have a need for order, but this can come in varied ways, like mental order or not having any chaos or emotional upset. Sometimes the need for order is so strong inside them, that they need to let go and let life be “messy” instead, in order to take the pressure off.

So as you get in touch with the need now to put things in order, to get back to school or hard work again, keep in mind that it is still summer and we are still within a Leo lunar cycle, still needing to enjoy summer and have fun.

After September 5, when the Moon joins the Sun in Virgo for a Virgo New Moon, we then get more fully engaged with getting down to work or school, getting our lives simplified, fixed, and put back in order.

There is a major storm of life intensity coming this Autumn in our personal lives and in the greater world.   Much will shake up again as we experience another Eclipse Season in October/November, another Uranus/Pluto exact square, Mercury Retrograde, and the appearance of Comet Ison in late November.   That comet may be a bright light in the sky and another harbinger of meaningful change, or it could turn out dim and be a dud.

Nevertheless, those other planetary events promise a most powerful, transformational, and meaningful Autumn Season.

In fact the second Eclipse of the two this autumn  is a hybrid Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, to be seen on the eastern seaboard USA, in southern Europe, the Middle East, and much of Africa.  Those regions, therefore,  may also feel more of the intensity on an energetic and transformational level.

For now, however, life energies should be beginning to settle down this week and have less intensity, generally speaking.    The Sun in Virgo makes opposition to Neptune Monday/Tuesday, suggesting we let go and trust, even while we are trying hard to figure things out or make them work right.

Mars leaves “feelings” oriented and family focused Cancer for fun loving and creative Leo on Wednesday/Thursday, where it will stay until mid October.  Open up your creative energies and projects, and let your heart’s intuition lead your way more.

Big egos on the world stage will show off their imagined “royalty” and superiority during this Mars in Leo time period and drive world events.

Make no mistake about it,  world leaders from the western world are getting ready to militarily engage in Syria. The USA has sent war ships today to the shores near Syria.  They will be slyly setting us all up for military involvement in Syria. Remember Iraq and weapons of mass destruction, which did not exist?

Now it is chemical weapons being used by the government of Syria.   They are setting us up again for war.  If chemical weapons are indeed being used, there is evidence they are being used by all parties involved.  And this is a most complicated conflict, with many Middle Eastern countries, western powers, and Russia all strutting for positions of power in this prized geopolitical spot on the Earth.  The instability also in Egypt and elsewhere since the Arab Spring promises powerful change in the Middle East and the world

We are moving into a dark cocoon of turmoil, which will eventually birth a butterfly of an Age of Aquarius.

Meditate and pray this conflict can be as tempered as possible, and that lessons will learned sooner than later, paving the way for a more graceful healing crisis for our human family here on Earth.

From late September through November the emotional and energetic levels of intensity will increase exponentially, especially in late October and November.

This means each of us will be challenged to stay on our soul path, to be present, to be aware of where the Universe is asking us to be open to healing and transformation in our consciousness and lives.

Sometimes what is mostly going on is not necessarily about making major life moves, but more about shifting the patterns.   We are sometimes so controlled by our early programming, by the wounds, traumas, and abuses from our lives.  These transformational times can bring us to the core of these traumas and programmed patterns, and in the process of exposing the wounds again, in sometimes new forms, we are given the opportunity to make deep change, experience deep healing, and be “reborn” into new ways of thinking, feeling and experiencing.

From these new places in our consciousness and souls we sometimes require new relationships or careers or homes, etc.  But often all we need is to be liberated from the stuck places in our minds and hearts, so we can live more healthy and whole lives.

See you next week,

Leo
