Endings and Astrology Forecast December 10-16.

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 9, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving downward, inward and yin-ward this week as we experience the waning last quarter of the lunar cycle.

Overnight from the 7th into the 8th of December, the Sun in Sagittarius squares the Moon in Virgo.  That begins the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the Scorpio New Moon on November 18.

Then on December 18 that lunar cycle ends at the usually uplifting Sagittarius New Moon. 

Later that week, on the 21st,  the darkest day of the year brings us to the return of more light on Winter Solstice.

Then on December 22 Mercury goes back Direct. 

So the week of the 18th brings a much needed turning point of new beginnings and a deeper sense that the glass of life is half full, not half empty.

The celebration of the birth of new hope that week extends its reach to Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve and day.

In contrast, this week December 10- 16, continues the drop into darker days and feelings.

The process of transformation shows us shedding the skins of the old Chapter of our consciousness and life.   And that process also shows us the light of our new world, the birth of a new way.

As we shed old skins we can feel the truth of death, carried by the coffin of our old ways, beliefs, and life.

The dark phase of the last quarter moon;  the last phase of the darkening solar light before Winter Solstice;  the last part of Mercury Retrograde, and the last part of 2017 all come together now.

The past may be flashing before your eyes now, allowing you to say goodbye, to grieve, and to purge and release.

As you look out into the dramas of our society, know that there is not only an old year and old chapter dying, but an over 2,000 year old Age is coming to an end too.

The dysfunctional and toxic old paradigm beliefs encourage us to see everything in win/lose, perpetrator/victim, predator/prey, survival of the fittest , “get what you can for you and yours” ways.

As we learn to truly listen to each other from our open minds and hearts, while at the same time holding our own integrity and values, we come out of that old programmed paradigm. Finding the connections lights our new path.

Open minds search for truth, each person’s truth, and thus the potential for some kind of agreement.  Open hearts have love guiding them to the threads of connection between everyone and everything.

And self acceptance, self honoring, self worth, self love, and self empowerment, allows each of us to be the best we can be in all endeavors and relationships. It also helps us to not give ourselves away as a sacrifice to the worst in others.  Self loathing enables the worst behavior in others.

Evolution will not be stopped. The dinosaurs among us are screaming and fighting to be able to live in the old ways, and take me and you with them.

We enable them if we stay in awe of those who have celebrity, wealth, and privilege.

Donald Trump show us the results of keeping that old belief system of some being superior to those who must be their inferiors.  And of course those superiors deserve the privileges of having more too.

The cream does not rise to the top of that old world, the crud does.

Release, release, release this week; surrender to the Universe and your soul’s wisdom. Let it end, whatever needs to end.  Do not hold onto any security blankets that keep you clinging to what you no longer really need anymore.

Trust that the Soul’s and Universe’s process will bring the birth light at the right time and in the right way.

This week, as we move down into more endings in the last quarter of the lunar cycle with Mercury still Retrograde; we also experience Mars leaving Libra and entering Scorpio on the 9th.

It will stay in Scorpio till January 26, just before the first of two eclipses, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo.

As Mars leaves Libra for Scorpio, voices and attempts at temperance and civility will be less respected and heard in much of the greater world.

More hawkish elements of our governments will want to dominate more.   Power struggles will get more fierce.  Remember the best of Mars in Scorpio is power serving a greater cause.  And love is the greatest cause.

Stay in your loving heart.  Empower yourself from that place. That brings a power that can change the world in the best of ways.

And in early 2018, as the next Eclipse Season opens up new portals of truth and love for those aligned and centered to receive; waves of change will be larger and encompass more.

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15 will bring a strong wave of the Age of Aquarius through community uprisings and attempts to overthrow those in power who are leading us backwards.  Impeachment voices should be getting much stronger then.

Administration attempts to distract our attention through world conflicts will be stronger then too.

Jerusalem has been added to the Koreas as a world hot spot.    Trump stating that Jerusalem is the sole capital of Israel is inflaming so much of the Arab and Muslim world.

Countries in the Middle East and all over the world are picking sides now.  World conflict is inevitable now.

The chaos will bring with it more ability to release and purge, more openings for the new world to come through.

The old programming is leaving the consciousness of each of us and though it has given us a distorted sense of security, it has also brought damage to our hearts and souls, our free minds and spirits, our sense of connections with each other and all life.

Our spiritual potential will get stronger and stronger, as will creative power, magic, and synchronicity,

New voices and leaders will emerge.  The Age of Aquarius will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes of our old paradigm and Age.

As you release and let go this week, keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde. It is Ok now to question what you have already chosen and the direction you are moving in, but do not act on that yet.

Wait till after the 22nd when it goes back Direct, and wait for the turning points later this year that will shift your perception to life’s half full viewpoint.

till next week,

Twilight Zone and Astrology Forecast December 3-9.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 2, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Sunday December 3 brings another turning point in our soul journey as Mercury goes Retrograde at 2:34 AM EST and there is a Full Moon in Gemini at 10:47 AM EST.

Saturday/Sunday may feel odd or otherworldly or confusing or magical, depending on the person.

Full Moons are energy shifts, and this one has the Sun in Sagittarius and Moon in Gemini,  which gives us desires to figure things out and resolve issues or gain a better understanding.

But that understanding or resolution may be difficult to attain as Mercury is stationary while shifting directions from Direct to Retrograde.

Stationary Mercury can be the most confusing time with Mercury, as it is in transition between Direct  and Retrograde.

As it begins to go retrograde , our perceptions are shifting from a more linear viewpoint to a more creative and imaginative one.

Communication can feel off and thinking can be challenged, especially if we are trying too hard to find an answer.

And with this Full Moon,  the Gemini Moon is interested in detached perceiving of information, as well as gathering, processing, and delivering that information; while the Sagittarius Sun is more interested in finding meaning, understanding, resolution, answers, and perhaps opinion and judgment.

Conversations with this yearly Gemini Moon can be lively and fluid, with perhaps some differences of opinion and strong needs to be heard and understood.

Thinking can also be lively, with needs to think fast, and take in more and more information.  That can be rather overwhelming for some, and can cause scattered thought and communications.

Wanting to do many different things around the same time, and juggle one’s attempts to do so, can be challenging.

It is best now to concentrate on being centered and aware,  grounded and present.

And of course with Mercury (the ruling planet of thinking and communicating) in the process of going retrograde, there can be contradicting information, confusion on what is fact or fiction, and distortions or even outright lies.

Fake News is a reality in our lives now, and it can be difficult to ascertain what is true or not.

With Mercury going Retrograde, make sure you trust your intuition more, go deep to feel what truly resonates.  Linear, logical ways of finding truth may be more difficult now.

We are getting more information now about Michael Flynn and his confessions to the government agencies.  How much is Trump or Pence or Kushner involved in this Russia fiasco?

How much of a chance of impeachment is there now?  Do not trust accepted facts or notions alone in this day and age and with the current planetary movements.

Trust a combination of thought (Gemini) and intuition (Sagittarius).  But take everything in with a “grain of salt” because of the combination of full moon and Mercury changing directions.

And what is the real truth of the new tax plan passed in Congress?  What does it mean for the average American?  And what is the truth now about what North Korea is now capable in regards to being able to hit anywhere in the USA with nuclear weapons?

And how much of what is supposedly going on in the world is being manufactured by the Trump administration in order to distract us from what can potentially lead to impeachment?

Will they manufacture a war to do so? It has been done before with other administrations.

And of course with more potentially confusing planetary alignments now, what is conspiracy theory and what is instead the truth that is just too difficult to accept.

In your personal life too, do not too quickly accept what is being said to you.  Make sure you check in with yourself to find if something resonates.  But on the other hand do not let your self get paranoid or overly suspicious of anyone.

Mercury Retrograde can feel like being in a Twilight Zone sometimes,  where everything feels kind of weird or different than before.

Remember that Mercury Retrograde will have us question what we have previously chosen or decided, and may get us to question whatever direction we have previously wanted to take.

Wait till Mercury goes back Direct on December 22 before making final decisions.  And actually a week or 10 days after it goes back Direct is best before making big decisions or starting big projects.

As usual with Mercury Retrograde people from your past may come back into your life, in your dreams, in your waking thoughts, or in real life.  They are back so you can get a different perspective on something in your current life.

With the Full Moon and Mercury Retrograde being felt together from December 2-6, you may feel motivated to let go of previously accepted ideas or plans.  Let it play out, trust the process without needing an immediate bottom line answer or direction.

Chiron in Pisces changes from Retrograde to Direct on December 5.  Chiron is a healing bridge between our human creature self and our higher self.  It is the link between Earth and Heaven, so to speak.  While in Pisces it is transforming how we deal with Pisces energies.

Pisces can be about our common needs to escape “normal” life, or instead is about spiritually letting go into other realms , channels, or frequencies.

Pisces is about being sensitive and vulnerable, which can lead us to being victimized, or can give us the kind of empathy or compassion that expresses a divine kind of love.

Chiron in Pisces brings the bridge between our human need of owning our vulnerabilities and needs to be loved, with our superhuman ability for otherworldly travels or saint-like compassion for others we do not fully understand.

Use this Chiron shift of directions to integrate your basic humanity with your God or Goddess presence. We are both, and Chiron wants to bring them together out of their separation.

On December 6, Mercury is conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius.  You may tend to have strong opinions, and want to make strict definitions, and find bottom line answers. Decisions will want to be made right now.  Authorities may clamp down on you.

Keep in mind that Mercury is Retrograde, and do not completely trust what would normally be accepted as fact or opinion.

On December 9, Mars goes into Scorpio until January 27, when it goes into Sagittarius during the next Eclipse Season.

Mars in Scorpio has a lot of power and can get into power struggles.  The North Korea and Middle East issues can now intensify greatly and pick up more voices for war.

In your own life use this Mars in Scorpio placement to empower yourself.  That does not mean have power over or dominating others. It means being able to stand in your strength and power and not let others dominate or control you.

Do not be so afraid of your power. Do you truly believe you will abuse that power as so many others do?

Till next week,

Not Fearing Fear Itself and Astrology Forecast August 10-16

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 9, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

This last week, with an emphasis on Scorpio and Leo energies, was very intense.   An important message to be taken from those energies is to live in the moment in your heart and with your passion.

Scorpio and Leo will continue to be important energies this coming week, as Venus will join the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter in Leo, while Mars and Saturn continue in Scorpio.

Venus leaves safe and nurturing Cancer for creative, playful, and ostentatious Leo this Tuesday August 12.  Your heart will seek to open more and to express itself more spontaneously.  Relationship orientation will want to be leaving co-dependent ways and to experience more genuine expressions of open hearted love.

Before Venus enters Leo on Tuesday, there is a Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius on Sunday August 10. This will bring a culmination or climax or perhaps some resolution to what was begun at the Leo New Moon on July 26.  As we have stated before that New Moon initiated a new chapter in our lives after the Cardinal Cross shakeups.

Now at this Full Moon we can intend to gain more perspective and understanding of that new chapter and hopefully more acceptance of it.

The roar of creative expression for living an authentic life (Leo) meets the social needs of the world around us at this Full Moon in Aquarius.   Can we take our true self into the world and fit in, or do we need to adjust our needs or at least our presentation in order to relate with others.

This Full Moon, which is at 2:09 PM PM EDT Sunday August 10, seeks to balance our self focused inclinations with our social consciousness.  So we may also be more motivated to find and express what we idealistically seek for the world we live in.

On Thursday Jupiter will make aspect to Neptune, so surrounding this time we have greater opportunity to open to spirit and soul, to more magic and synchronicity, to deeper and higher levels of consciousness.

On Friday Mars in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn.  Surrounding this day the emotional intensity level may increase even more and world conflicts may get more intense as well.

We have all entered a new chapter in our human lives on Planet Earth since the important Cardinal Grand Cross and Eclipse season earlier this year.    Our consciousness is shifting and changing this year in big ways.

Transformation of consciousness is the most important part of the foundation we are building now to support our entry into the Age of Aquarius.   Uranus square Pluto is the main motivator to change our consciousness now; and as those two powerfully transformational energies were part of the Cardinal Grand Cross this spring 2014, we are experiencing huge waves of revolutionary and evolutionary instigation.

In the mid ’60s Uranus was conjunct Pluto, and of course that was symbolic of the huge tides of change just beginning then for the ’60s and ’70s revolution and evolution.

Civil rights issues dominated that time period and African Americans and women were screaming for liberation from an often controlling and demeaning society.   A spotlight was shone on a society that programmed its citizens into robotic allegiance to its dictates.  Wars and global capitalism were challenged and protests and civil disturbances broke out as efforts to change the world.  There were movements to break down old gender roles and to liberate us from emotional and sexual repression.

In those processes of transformation, marijuana was an important way for many to break out of consciousness boxes, to break away from stuck mind and heart chains, and to breathe the fresh air of new ways of thinking and feeling.  Psychedelics were also part of that process of breaking down old ways and opening up to new ones.

Now we have again faced civil rights issues, and minds have been opening for the plights and rights for gays and lesbians over the last few years .  We are again wanting to break away from the controls of the programming from society, from unjust and horrible wars, from a Global Corporate and Governmental Dominance that is making our human experience more toxic than ever.  And now marijuana is legal in some states and will probably in time become legal most everywhere.

This is Uranus and Pluto roaring once again and promising to bring even greater tides of change than the ’60s and ’70s.

Back in the ’60s people sang and celebrated the “Dawning of the Age of Aquarius”, and now it is much closer to our collective doorstep.   The roar of its power is permeating our collective consciousness, our world events, and our personal lives.

But now the forces of repression are stronger than before. Back then the Vietnam War was ended and the Nixon presidency came down, in large part because of the power of the people who were under the influence of Uranus/Pluto and waves of transformational energies from the approaching Age of Aquarius.

The so-called Military Industrial Complex is much more powerful than before and now so many of the young people in the USA (who were so instrumental in the ’60s changes) are now seemingly dozing to the lull of computer sights and sounds.

But nevertheless we are all being awakened now and sometimes that awakening is taking the form of world or personal events that shake us up so we will have a deeper look at our lives.

On the world stage we see the massacre of innocent civilians in Gaza on our TV screens, we see more needless world conflicts and fights for land and resources and power, we witness Corporate and Government controls taking away our freedoms, we see institutions that can no longer be trusted to serve our best interests.

Monsanto has such control of the food industry and our elected officials as they deny us even simple labeling of food products so we can know what we are eating.  The NSA spies on Americans and who knows how much of our information is available through the internet.

Our elected officials are bought out by all sorts of monied interests, apparently also true now of the Judicial system and highest courts who now have decided that Corporations are people. And of course Israel has a powerful influence over our foreign policy decisions.

The turmoil that is here now in world events and in our personal lives is meant to be a catalyst for change again, as they were back in the ’60s and ’70s.

But now we are closer to the true dawning of a new age, and it will take even more powers of transformation to assist us in our evolution.

So if at times now you are feeling like you are going crazy or you are overwhelmed by the emotions flooding you and events that seemingly have no solution; trust the process operating deep under the surface.    Try to open your mind to new ways of looking at situations, people and yourself; learn to not judge so quickly; do your best to summon up empathy and to look at both sides of an issue.  And do your best to surrender your ego now to your authentic soul self, the part of you that holds the wisdom you now need.

Do your best not to freak out at what is happening in the world or in your personal life.  Trust the Universe and its inexorable movement into the Age of Aquarius. Trust your self to know what to do and when, to be guided to people and situations that are just right for you at just the right time.  Stay out of debilitating fear or you will lose your way.   As FDR so famously said, “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself”.

There is an Autumn Eclipse Season beginning in September, before the first of two eclipses on October 8. We will write more about that in later installments of Perspectives from the Sky.

See you next week,

Following Our Better Angels and Astrology Forecast August 3-9

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on August 2, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The past week after the New Moon in Leo and Mars going into Scorpio, we entered a new zone for our human lives on Earth.

There is no turning back, as all the roads that would lead to a continuation of the old stories and old patterns have been closed for soul travelers.

You can still try but you will only become locked up into the Groundhog Day maze of Deja Vous over and over again and again.

The Cardinal Grand Cross Eclipse Season from earlier this year shook up our lives and awakened us to the new journey, to a new season or chapter of our lives.

In the process, we have felt the losses and some were quite painful.   There was and still is grief for what we left and let go.

But now it is time to move forward without looking for a way back.   This coming week, as we are in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun last week at the Leo New Moon; we keep our eyes ahead.

This coming week will be dominated by Leo and Scorpio energies.  That means it is important now to get more firmly connected to your passion and your purpose, to your heart’s desires and your creative spark.

If you are over analyzing and trying to desperately figure out what to do or what direction to move in, then your ego is in control of your life.

With Leo and Scorpio dominating our energy field this week, it is best to “follow your gut” and instincts (Scorpio) and follow your heart and creative spontaneity (Leo).

If your mind tries to keep control and brings a lot of fear with it, you will be tempted to stop trusting the path you have chosen and to want to retreat.

Believe me there is no where back you can go now.   It is best to follow your heart, intuition and instincts to keep you on track.  That does not mean you should be impulsive and “throw all caution to the wind”, as that would be a way to avoid being present.

Your mind can now be a valued advisor as it gives up its need to be your boss, letting you now know if your heart or intuition is a bit off, but it should not be allowed to make fear your guiding hand.

Your heart and soul now will show you the connections, will light your path, as they show you the synchronicities, signs, and symbols, the inspirations, that keep you on track.

Stay away or limit your interaction with people who will have you doubt your own wisdom and doubt the path you have chosen.   Even people you may consider intelligent can still be limited by a closed mind that has not been awakened to the new world.

With Leo and Scorpio prevailing energies this week, open up your creative channels of expression.   Write, paint, draw, dance, sing, do anything that opens you to your deeper self, its voice and its expression.

As you get more in touch with your passion and authenticity now, you will also see that there is a lot of magic all around, lots of winks from the Universe letting you know you are connected and aligned.

Being connected and aligned to the “silent voice” inside you, brings you to everything you need.   Being disconnected to that voice and to your heart and soul brings you back to a chattering and fearful mind, one that will sabotage your natural evolution now.

So finish off your job of cutting loose beliefs, mindsets, patterns, people, jobs, or places that hold you back in fear, that make you feel worthless or inconsequential, that tell you are “out of touch with reality”.

Do you ever feel you are a sane person in an insane and dysfunctional world?  The old “reality” is keeping many members of our human family chained to ways of being that are destructive. Us versus Them mentality is rearing its ugly head in big ways now.  It is killing off many innocent human beings in the Middle East and elsewhere.

But if you attach yourself to those dramas in ways that make you more hateful, more fearful, more despondent and hopeless, then you need to let the attachment go and realize that there is a greater meaning to it all.

Nature brings storms and calamities all the time to cleanse our world and bring rebirths.   And as painful as it is to see such horrible suffering and pain in our fellow human being as these wars are bringing; we can still know that rebirth will come from the ashes of that old world. More and more people are being awakened to the knowledge that these old ways of destroying “the hated enemy” are being perpetrated by the dinosaurs of our future world.

I see awakened people all the time.  They know they cannot save the world, but at least they are seeing the truth of how the old attitudes and beliefs are destroying us. They are taking the journey of healing and transformation that is a prerequisite for our evolution into the Age of Aquarius.

As more and more of us evolve, as more and more of us speak up with new voices, as more and more of us let love and truth be our guiding lights, and trust that we live in a meaningful Universe, we lead the way for our future generations.

The carnage in the world now need not discourage us, but instead should remind us of how important it is now to help heal and transform ourselves for our new world.

How you were yesterday at your worst, or how our world was yesterday at its worst, do not determine who we are today nor what the future will be.  We have the ability to choose to live our lives according to our “better angels” today and be enveloped by the light of the Age of Aquarius now.

See you next week,

Dawn’s Early Light and Astrology Forecast July 27- August 2.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 26, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are truly moving forward now into a New Chapter and Season of our lives on Planet Earth.  Yesterday Friday July 25 Mars went into focused and intense Scorpio, and the New Moon conjunct expansive Jupiter is today July 26 at 6:42 PM EDT.  This new season at the New Moon has begun after the Cardinal Grand Cross this last spring and thus represents a powerful new beginning.

Maybe for some loose ends still need to be tied and a bit more clarity needs to form, but we have each hopefully jumped on the moving train and are ready to go.

The only thing you need to be sure of now is what you believe.  Do you at the core of your being believe we live in a connected and meaningful Universe?  Or have you bought into the fear based programming of the world?

What you now attract to your self is very dependent on that belief system.   Will you attract the “better angels” inside your self and in the Universe, or will you attract the ones that will swallow you up into more hellish places in your mind and heart?

Are the circumstances that unfolded during this past Spring Eclipse Season with the Cardinal Cross meaningful and meant to usher in a new Chapter of your life; or were those events random bad luck or good luck?  It is your choice.

Even if the those events were painful and difficult, they still happened for a reason, were a learning experience or a motivation to accept the turning pages into a New Chapter of your life.  Or do you see it differently, through eyes of more “glass half empty” focus?

We cannot stop the changing tides of life, but we can better adapt and evolve within those changes if we believe our lives are sacred and meaningful.   This is not necessarily about believing in “God”, but more about believing in spirit and soul and believing that we humans are capable of evolving into beings who can have love and truth as our guiding lights.

This is absolutely necessary now. Take a look at our world now.  The old world is beginning to come apart.  We are being brought to “judgment days” inside ourselves.

Do we see the unravelling, which has much violence in its process, as a sign we are all going down into the abyss together?  Or do we see this as part of the transformation into an Aquarian Age, part of the process of releasing old programs and beliefs that can not come with us if we are to truly evolve and survive?

What is happening now in Gaza is a terrible tragedy.  These bombings are indiscriminate and reflective of a lack of concern for the people there. As of this writing over 1000 people have died in Gaza as a result of these attacks, the vast majority civilians, and many children.

This is part of the old paradigm of only caring about “me and mine”, “us versus them” mentality, needs for superiority and inferiority, and needing enemies to fear and hate.

The Middle East, a place of the original human civilizations and organized religions, reflects our roots which have decayed.   Now we need a deep transformation, from the core of our beings, so we can build an Age of Aquarius from the ashes of that old world and paradigm.

You can expect more turmoil in the Middle East and in Ukraine/Russia and elsewhere, as old borders from a contrived world of nations break down. The Old Order is no longer viable.

A new world, an Age of Aquarius is within our grasp if we get to a consciousness that believes we are equal in value, and that a world of Diversity in Unity is possible, a world where love and truth are our guiding lights.

In your own world do your best to balance an allowing of the change, with a holding onto some security and stability.

And now, with the New Moon in Leo and Mars moving into Scorpio, there is a  breaking open of that which was still stuck, a release of the old, and a burst of energy giving movement to go forward.  In addition, Venus will trigger the Uranus/Pluto square and the old Cardinal Grand Cross this coming week, to add to the intensity and power of transformation.

Much of this energy will be passionate and potentially quite creative too. It is best now not to try too hard to control or repress the natural movement inside and around you.

Find the proper boundaries or limits so you are not flooded with emotion or anxiety, but do nonetheless allow nature to take its course.

This is only the beginning of chaotic turmoil in the greater world, it will continue to intensify.   It will affect all corners of our Earthly world.  The way we have been programmed to believe, the world we have been conditioned to find stability within, will be entering our rear view mirror.

We are being awakened to the truth and to new ways of thinking, being, and feeling.   We are being dis-illusioned from the government, media, and corporate programming of who are the “good guys” and who are the “bad guys”. Wake up and realize the so-called bad guys see the supposed good guys as their bad guys.   It is all made up as an excuse to fight against those who seemingly threaten our way of life.   We must end this old paradigm.

As we awaken out of our slumber, we drop into a deeper knowing that we are all one human family in an Age of Aquarius.

Resist the urge to hate Putin or hate Islamists or anyone else, as our media and corporate/government powers from an old age try to convince us.

Resist also your desire to hate your ex-husband or boss or father or whomever.   Their presence in your life is as a teacher of something you need to learn or experience.

And all of us are moving back “home”  inside ourselves, some faster than others, but all wanting to know we are safe in the arms of a loving Universe.

Hand of Time Shows it is Time for a New Chapter in Our Lives and Astrology Forecast July 20-26

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 19, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Hand of Time is ready to start ticking again as Saturn is stationing ready to go Direct this Sunday July 20.

We let you know last week that in the days surrounding this event, world events that feel like fate would erupt in our world.

Saturn Direct is more important than it usually is because it follows the very powerful Cardinal Grand Cross that happened during Spring Eclipse Season 2014.

Hand Of Time Saturn goes Direct and we all enter a very important new chapter or season of our lives on Planet Earth.

Two very important events that affect lives all over the Earth happened as Saturn was about to go Direct:  A Malaysian passenger plane was shot down late this last week over Ukraine;  and Israel  seriously intensified its war with Hamas and the Palestinians by pushing its ground forces into Gaza.

Already a few hundred Palestinians have been killed (mostly civilians) by air bombings over Gaza.   Hamas and other groups have also been sending rockets into Israel, but only killing one Israeli in the process.  The carnage in Gaza is horrendous.

Going back into the Eclipse Season as the Cardinal Cross was formed,   the top world news stories then were:  A Malaysian airliner disappeared, which has still not been found;  Ukraine blew up as it began to split between western interests and Russian interests.;  John Kerry made a concerted effort to bring peace to Israel and the Palestinians; the Islamic State made great advances in Syria and Iraq.

Now as Saturn goes Direct and the Hand of Time begins to move forward,  two very important and seemingly fated events happen that are very connected to those world events and the Cardinal Grand Cross.

Most strangely that the incredible disappearance of the Malaysian plane in the Spring, now becomes a shot down Malaysian plane over Ukraine, bringing those two events from Spring Eclipse Season together in a strange way.

When we also add the Isis takeover of Iraq, which happened while the Cross was still in effect, with the events in Ukraine and Israel/Palestine; we see themes that are forming which are aligned with the transition between Ages.

As we let you know in previous writings, Chaos versus Order will be a pervading theme during this transition, as borders and rules of the Old World are breaking down and forceful attempts to keep the old security systems are countering that movement.

Interestingly, as Saturn has been stationing to go Direct on July 20, at the same time Uranus has been stationing to go retrograde and will turn Retrograde on July 21.  Planets that station to change directions, whether to Direct or Retrograde, have their energy permeating the frequencies of our consciousness and world.

Saturn is security and control; Uranus is breaking out of stuck forms and often bringing chaos as a result. Not only are those two planets both changing directions at the same time; they also are making aspect to one another.  They are making a quincunx or 150 degree aspect to one another.  Saturn is going Direct at 16+ degrees of Scorpio while Uranus is going Retrograde at 16+ degrees of Aries.

As the turf in the Middle East is being transformed, the lives of many peoples all over the world are affected because so many countries are invested in the resources and power structures there.

In Ukraine, NATO nations have been trying to be the main influence there, which used to be a part of the Soviet Union and has many residents with Russian heritage. So Russia has also been fighting for influence.  The flight that was shot down over Ukraine has passengers from all over the world.

So you can see that these events are affecting peoples all over the world.  It is likely that the “fated” events this past week are the catalysts for great change in the Middle East and Ukraine.  And like dominoes falling, the whole world will be transformed as a result.

Keep in mind that besides the Middle East events in Iraq/Syria with Isis and the conflict between Israel and Palestine, the talks to change the nuclear program of Iran met a deadline with no results  on July 20, the day of Saturn going Direct. Subsequently,  they have extended that deadline 4 more months

The power of change is enormous now and will continue to be so.   Later this week Mars will leave diplomatic and peace seeking Libra for intense, passionate and focused Scorpio this Friday July 25.

And the next day on Saturday July 26 there will be New Moon in Leo conjunct Jupiter and square that Mars in Scorpio.

This will be the final sign of our movement into a New Chapter of our lives, and it may be a most intense passage.

As we collectively move into a New Chapter/Season of our human lives on Planet Earth on the way to the Age of Aquarius in the 2020’s, so also do each of us in our personal lives.

If you have been procrastinating and reluctant to choose or make decision or pick a direction to move toward, there is a major turning point now begging you to choose and move forward.

The train of our lives will be taking off without us if we are not ready, and may as a result push us to where or what we may not want.  So please stay present and aware and do not avoid or be distracted.

All of the shakeups you may have been experiencing this year, in conjunction with Spring Eclipse Season and the Cardinal Grand Cross, were done so you would shift your consciousness and life into this New Chapter.

Uranus  and Saturn changing directions this week will bring a need to balance between opening up your life and liberating yourself from stuck mindsets or situations (Uranus), and keeping security and stability and being grounded (Saturn).

Mars going into Scorpio on July 25 will intensify your life, help you to focus and move forward, and feel your passion more.  It will stay in Scorpio until September 13, when it goes into Sagittarius.

The New Moon in Leo conjunct Jupiter will bring you more spirit and positive energy, more hope after perhaps previous difficulties.   This New Chapter of our lives needs hope and faith as we release old beliefs and ways of being, so we can align our consciousness and lives for the Age of Aquarius.

The changes in the world and the changes in our own consciousness and lives are meant to help us to get out of our stuck and controlling images and egos (the downside of Leo) and move more into our authentic and creative heartfelt selves (upside of Leo).

This week there is a shift forward for all of us.  Make intention that this new doorway will bring you to be more whole and healthy, more aligned with your authentic soul self and the Universe, more aware of the connections inside you and all around, more unified with everyone in our human family, and open and ready to embrace the Age of Aquarius.

No matter what craziness is happening in the world, you have the ability and strength to keep your focus on the world you want the children now and in the future to inhabit.  And so it is and so it shall be.

See you next week,

Blinded by the Light and Astrology Forecast July 13-19

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 12, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving into the the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Cancer New Moon on June 27.   The “climax” of that lunar cycle happened earlier this Saturday June 12.  It was a Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon, meaning Sun in Cancer and Moon opposite  in Capricorn.

This Full Moon brings us to the differences between archetypal mother (Cancer) and father (Capricorn) energies.  Together these signs represent security and safety, but in much different ways.

Cancer helps us to feel safe in our own skin, permissively able to just be whatever we feel like being.  We feel safe at home, and in our personal life.  We are shown how to honor “inner values”, values of caring, empathy, and processing feelings.  We learn to contribute to family.

Capricorn teaches us how to build a sense of security in the outer world, through accomplishment, discipline and planning.  We are made to feel we need to live up to our potential, build a solid career and to contribute to the world.

This Full Moon is meant to balance the Sun in Cancer’s influence from these past three weeks.   We have needed to be more unconditionally loving with ourselves and others, more open with our feelings, more into nurturing ourselves with “just being” instead of doing all the time.

Yes Cancer can be very unconditional, but in that process can sometimes go over the line and be too permissive without healthy boundaries.

So the Moon in Capricorn adds more strictness, healthy rules and boundaries, more self discipline and getting better at taking responsibility for ourself and our own life.

This is a good time to balance inner and outer values and to balance permissiveness with more strict behavior patterns.

This Full Moon is a turning point energetically.  As we are now in the waning half of the lunar cycle, we can begin to slow down, dust ourselves off, and make plans for what we will soon get involved in.

This Capricorn Full Moon begins to let us know we are needing to “get ourselves together” and get ready to make our lives work in all new ways, ways that are resonant with who we are becoming and what this new chapter of our lives can look like.

Soon things will open up more and be more energized.

This week, with the Moon waning however, we still have some time to decide what turns we will soon make.  While we are slowing down somewhat, there will also be counteracting energies.

As such Jupiter will be leaving homey and cave like Cancer for fiery and shining Leo.  This begins this Wednesday July 16.  Jupiter has been in Cancer for a year, will now stay in Leo for a year.

Jupiter opens up and expands whatever it touches, so as it moves into Leo it opens up the creative and spontaneous part of our hearts, helping us to be more creative, open hearted, confident, and shining of our personal light.

If you have ego issues, issues of a personal image being incongruous with your authentic self; then your own light will be blocked from shining to its fullest.   Low self esteem or glorified ego get in the way of natural self expression.

So this year is a good year to work on your ego and self esteem issues, so you can truly be more in your heart.  You can truly learn to love your self more with Jupiter in Leo, not love some image of your self, but love your true and authentic self.

This true and authentic self then has the confidence to express itself unselfconsciously and to shine light and warmth to all around.    And in the process it finds success.

Success is not a a dirty word.   It is about actualizing oneself and one’s potential and finding one’s place in the world from there. It is not about competition with others or about making money and fitting some image of success.  You just have to allow your authentic soul self to align with the Universe and then follow the yellow brick road from there- Of course easier said than done.

There is much ego to release to get there, much programming from society and family to let go of.

So Jupiter in Leo shifts us more intensely into the process of ego and soul self working things out.

Also coming soon, next Sunday July 20,  Saturn will end its Retrograde movement and go back Direct. It has been retrograde since March 2 2014.

Saturn is symbolically both gravity and the hand of time, so you can see how it represents that which you cannot escape. Gravity holds our bodies to this Earth and Time stops for no one, it just keeps on ticking.

As Saturn goes Direct, time marches on and we feel at that time that “reality” rules.

This can sometimes bring a sense of “fate” or “meant to be” or at least like it is time to “get it together” and move on. This feeling can start any time this week leading up to next Sunday.

Then after July 25/26, as Mars goes into Scorpio and the New Moon opens up in Leo conjunct Jupiter; it will be time to take whatever has changed since early this year, whatever we have learned or experienced during the time since then, and go more fully into this New Chapter of our lives.  Ready or Not Here We Come.

You will see this play out in the greater world also.   Events that will feel like they are fated will play out in the Middle East and perhaps other places too, events that will alter our human destiny. These events will thrust us more fully into this New Chapter in  our collective lives on Earth, a new season that is necessary for our evolution into the Age of Aquarius.

June 28 this year was the 100 year anniversary of the beginning of World War I in 1914.  On that date a Serbian man assassinated Austrian Archduke Ferdinand and his wife.  World War I began shortly thereafter from that incident that does not seem to have warranted complete chaos breaking out in the world.  It felt like fate.

In our world now Israel and Hamas are at war that threatens to get much worse. Add that to the power of the newly developed Islamic State in what was Syria and Iraq; the nuclear talk with Iran coming to an end; and the shake up from Arab Spring in 2011, and you can see the potential for complete transformation of the Middle East and our world as a result.

In your own life, please concentrate on the transformation of your own consciousness, not on the “stories” we will be given by the Powers or Media.  It is best to not allow your self to get swept up in the ego dramas of ‘us versus them”, good guys versus bad guys. It is best not to get swept up in bashing President Obama or the Republicans or any other person or party.

We are all in this together, and we all need to work together to create our Age of Aquarius.  And the “better than or worse than” mentality will just keep us stuck in the old paradigm and age.

This world is a co-creation and the new world is also a co-creation.  Transforming our consciousness is the gateway into the Age of Aquarius.   If we keep looking for enemies or looking down or up at anyone else, we are helping to perpetuate the consciousness of the old paradigm and age.

The light of the Age of Aquarius is there for each of us to follow. We just need to allow our souls to lead the way, as our egos will be blinded by the light.
