New Normal and Astrology Forecast November 26- December 2

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on November 25, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week begins with further progress in our transformational journeys, and then reaches a kind of climax and turning-point slow down at the end of the week. 

We enter the 2nd quarter of the Scorpio New Moon lunar cycle Sunday the 26th at the Moon in Pisces.

Next Stop is the energetic climax at the Full Moon in Gemini on December 3. The previous day we encounter a rewind of our mental processes as Mercury goes retrograde.

We have experienced strong winds of change in 2017, so we have been doing the inner work of transforming out of old patterns and beliefs.

Transformational change is never simply about outer world shifts. Yes we may be leaving an old job or an old home or an old relationship; but more important is what is going on deep in our souls.

In the past we attracted to ourselves situations, people, and challenges aligned with who we used to be at a very deep place in our minds and souls.

If we developed a belief about ourselves, deep inside, that told us we are not worthy or deserving, then as a result we attracted into our lives mirrors that show us how right we were to doubt ourselves.

Jobs, homes, families, and relationships have given us these negative mirrors based on those beliefs.  And then those personal beliefs are strengthened about our not being worthy or “enough”.  And then those beliefs attract more negative people and situations, which then again develop strengthening negative beliefs, and so on and so on.

These patterns continue until we awaken and realize that we have been running programmed negative inner recordings from our childhood, past relationships or situations, or even past lives.

That is when true transformation begins, the kind of deep transformation that can change our lives to be aligned with our true self, our “higher self”.

And at those times the transformational planets go to work to lead and guide our soul journey.

Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are those transformational planets; and they show up as transits to our natal planets every time there is true transformation as a distinct possibility.

The old self is a result of our being programmed to believe that we and our lives are limited and lacking, or conversely are privileged and have fairy tale results.

The handsome prince or castle or in the modern world privilege, wealth, celebrity and fame are the carrots that keep us chained to our ego selves.  We want to be with the “haves” and not with the “have-nots”.   This is Jupiter making the promise of grand reward if we play the “game” in the best way possible.

And Saturn is the “stick” of poverty or incarceration or illness or hell if we do not play the game right and follow the rules.

Jupiter and Saturn are also respectively considered good luck or bad luck.

But then in 1781 Uranus was discovered, then Neptune in 1846, and then Pluto in 1930.

They show us we can leave the old paradigm, the old beliefs, the old testament, the old contracts, the old age. They show us we are not limited by these old rules. They show us all dualities are connected in wholeness like a Yin-Yang sign.  They show us to our higher soul self in the lead and not our ego selves.  They show us we are on the road to the Age of Aquarius.

And now the transformational journey’s speed is accelerating as we get closer and closer to the true dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

The next big spike forward will be the next Eclipse Season January through March 2018.  It is the first follow-up to the powerful Eclipse Season last summer, which featured the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo that travelled right over the USA.

America is now very much in the process of dropping its Superpower status in order to re-integrate its true values and become an equal member of the world of nations,   a part of the Aquarian Age of Diversity within Unity.

Now this week we travel up tempo toward the Full Moon in Gemini Sunday December 3.

And just before that Full Moon, on the 2nd of December, Mercury goes Retrograde.

It will be time to stop and reconsider, to rewind into the past, to reflect on where we are and where we have been, to revise or even change our decisions or chosen direction.

But of course my usual advice is to wait till Mercury goes back Direct before making final decisions or changing directions.  This time it goes Direct on December 22, which is part of a turning point week with New Moon in Sagittarius and Winter Solstice.

But again this week we move up toward the Full Moon, while shifting gears into Mercury Retrograde late in the week.

Before those two events next weekend,  we experience a fiery blend of Venus going into Sagittarius and Mars opposing Uranus.  Desires for change or adventure increase.  Desire for breaking away from stuck places in your mind or life get stronger.  Rebellious or revolutionary energies are increasing.  The potential for surprise events in the world are greater than usual around this time.

It is now holiday season for many people on Earth.  The uplifting Sun in Sagittarius always accompanies holiday season for most of its run. And of course the Sun is now in Sagittarius until December 21 at the Winter Solstice when it goes into Capricorn..

As we come closer and closer to the next year of 2018, we look back at a year of new beginnings for great change.

The Trump administration has brought much motivation to many to stand up for change.  More and more people are waking up to acknowledging the sorry state of our conventional world and its old paradigm.

Trump is merely an exaggerated example of the leaders and movers and shakers of our old world.  The power abusers are being revealed. Old beliefs about how men and women should be are being challenged.

The fragility of our lives is being exposed as we feel the possibility of nuclear destruction more deeply than before.

We are reevaluating our priorities and transforming our beliefs and lives.  More and more people are committing to being authentic and at the same time being aligned with their higher soul self and the Universe ( God, Gods, Goddesses, Allah or whatever words you use for unity of all).

There is no going back to “normal” anymore.  We are in the chaotic, creative, transitional phase of developing a New Normal.

And there is a New You being developed at the same time.  And that New You also brings back soul parts of an Old You that was lost many years ago, perhaps in your childhood during traumatic events.

Your wholeness is the New You, as wholeness is the New World and Age.

All separate parts are honored and integrated in wholeness: Diversity within Unity for the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Ready or Not and Astrology Forecast December 13- 19

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 12, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

On and around Friday December 11 we received energies that assist us in getting out of stuck places and patterns.

Mars opposed Uranus and then there was New Moon in Sagittarius.

It is a signal that it is time to move forward.  We can begin to move beyond having to concentrate on intensive processing of emotions and thoughts, digging deeper to face our demons and shadows, and feeling stuck and unable to move forward.

It is time to more fully enter a new chapter of our lives here on Planet Earth.

We have been in this new chapter for awhile already, but now we can begin to stop mulling over what we imagine we did wrong,  stop feeling we are the victim to someone or something, and stop going over the same tapes in our minds that keep us trapped.

It is time to embrace the free spirit in us, and to allow the Universe and our Higher Selves to inspire our souls and help guide us.

It is time to let go of the excuses that have held us back, and to more fully take responsibility for our lives and the world we live in.

Indeed so many of us have been traumatized by our childhoods and earlier experiences, and challenged by the wounds we have endured and the karma we have received.

But there are times such as now when we can throw off the chains that have bound us and start to trust our deeper souls and the Universe.

Of course there will still be times when you will face your demons again, when you will need to feel your trauma again; but you can now begin to stop letting those issues Control your heart, mind and life.

What is running your show, so to speak?  Is it love or fear?

Now is the time, as the Sagittarius New Moon has just been experienced, to let the fire of spirit lift you forward in your life.

It has felt like a long time since the Eclipses of September.   We now are in a whole new realm of experience.

The global powers that be are trying to manage grave new terror threats, a weakening global economy, and a Middle East and world that is so susceptible now to some spark of miscalculation that would light a fire of world war.

President Obama, whatever you otherwise feel about the job he has done, has been holding back the tide of overwhelming forces of potential global disaster.

He opened up doorways to better relations with Iran and Cuba; he has resisted the temptation to demonize Islamic peoples; and he has tried to detach from his emotions in order to listen to his “better angels” inside.

Of course he is largely controlled by big Corporate interests and a decaying global  paradigm, as all presidents would be now.

But he at least is walking a thin line that has opened some consciousness and light into the new world and age.

There is the light of Diversity in Unity beginning to shine through his making relationship with Cuba, Iran, and Islam.  And his administration has helped open doors for greater rights for LGBT peoples.

And he has given credence to obvious abuse of African Americans as seen in Ferguson and elsewhere.

And he has taken part passionately in the recent global conference on Climate Change.  That conference has just come up with a plan to deal with Climate Change, a most postive world development.

The Uranus/Pluto square has been aspecting the natal Sun/Saturn of the USA from its birth on July 4 1776.  It has been doing so ever since the Cardinal Grand Cross in April 2014.

The Sun in a person’s or any entity’s of country’s natal chart represents one’s central self and identity, one’s ego, but also one’s higher purpose.

Pluto and Uranus are two powerful transformational planets.   As they make aspect to the USA natal Sun they are trying to get the USA prepared for a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius.

As such the USA is needing to let go of its ego of Superpower.  It is hopefully in the process letting go a paradigm that gives license to impose its way of being on others.

President Obama’s time in office has shown some light as we have said before into a transformed USA ego and sense of purpose.

But at the same time there is a collective desire to cling to the old ego.

Is not Donald Trump a reflection of that narcissistic ego?

Can we as a nation rise beyond that ego, and reintegrate the better values from our founding principles.

All men are created equal with certain inalienable rights like life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  But now those principles need to be applied to all peoples all over the Earth.

All people are created equal; diverse peoples living together in unity; and freedom to pursue one’s individual or country’s destiny are principles of the Age of Aquarius.

BTW the USA natal chart shows a Moon in Aquarius. The Moon is one’s inner soul and inner values.

If we can return to the core of our values we can be a benefit to humanity, not to dominate but to work in equality with all others.

The Earth and USA have also now more fully entered this new chapter of human life on Planet Earth, on the road to an Age of Aquarius in the 2020’s.

For all of us it is now “ready or not here it comes”.

There is no  more turning back and no more sitting on fences, no more hand wringing with fear.

We have each chosen which fork in the road we are taking, even if that choice is buried within- beyond our conscious knowing.

This coming week has no really strong aspects pushing or pulling us in any direction.

Nevertheless, we are on an “upward slope’ on the way to the Full Moon in Cancer on Christmas Day.  And we are at the same time on a “downward slope” on the way toward the Winter Solstice on December 21/22 (depending on what time zone you are in).

Processing on our lives and emotions and spiritual path will continue even though we are now taking the ride through this new chapter of life.

But that processing will have strong intention now of finding solution, fostering positive transformation, and continuing to awaken or stay awake to the truth and love all around.

Even if you feel some depression with the darkening days, winter coming on, or the state of our world; it is wise to find a way to see the glass of life as half full now, so you do not slip back into old stories and get swallowed up in fear or rage.

We are inexorably moving into the Age of Aquarius, even if events may seem frightening and foreboding.

Till next week,

Leo

Taking the Ride and Astrology Forecast December 6-12

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on December 5, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now firmly in the last quarter of the lunar cycle, experiencing a darkening Moon prior to the rebirth at the Sagittarius New Moon on December 11.

Before that fiery new moon next Friday, as we first experience the darkening last quarter Moon- we are most aligned doing cleanup work, releasing, healing, completing, and finding closure.

To assist us on our healing and releasing journey,  Mars will be squaring Pluto early this week.

This very intense aspect symbolizes deeply powerful and perhaps explosive energies building up beneath the surface.  The Moon in Scorpio most of Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday adds to the deeply powerful feelings. Plus Venus has just entered Scorpio, where it will stay until December 30.

At the least we will be contacting feelings and emotions deep inside of us, feelings that may sometimes be difficult.

These feelings coming up for us represent that which has not been fully dealt with yet, not been fully expressed or released.

We may need to feel our pain again or to grieve some more for times gone by, or for people or pets no longer with us or no longer connected in our hearts.

We may even need to express emotions to someone else, in order to say our piece to them, to empower our selves, to hold them accountable, or to clear the air.

This process will hopefully help you to put some issues behind you, to release toxic energies, to find completion, and to get ready for the new beginnings at the strong New Moon in Sagittarius on December 11 at 5:29 AM EST.

So this will be for many a very transformational week, the first part facing some shadows or inner demons; and the last part being thrust forward into a rebirth or at least new beginnings.

The Mars square Pluto aspect on Sunday triggers the Uranus/Pluto square, which is still in effect.  This Uranus/Pluto square, which has been in effect since 2011, is an important part of the powerful changes we are seeing in the world and inside ourselves.

Uranus and Pluto are two of the three transformational planets, Neptune being the other one.

These three planets are cosmic ambassadors for the New Age in Aquarius.

All three are relatively recent discoveries:  Uranus in 1781, Neptune in 1846, and Pluto in 1930.

They are instrumental in bringing us the consciousness needed to pass through the transition between ages.

After Mars squares Pluto this Sunday, later this week just before the New Moon- Mars will be in opposition to Uranus, again triggering the Uranus/Pluto square.  This Mars opposite Uranus aspect, along with the New Moon in Sagittarius, represents breakthrough liberation and new beginnings.

Mars opposition Uranus carries the energy to help us get unstuck, of being lifted outside of any boxes in our minds or lives, and being liberated from that which has previoiusly kept us held back.

It synchronizes perfectly with the New Moon in Sagittarius.

Sagittarius brings an upwardly pointed energy, seeking spirit and higher meaning.  It can bring with it inspiration and excitement,  upliftment and adventure.

It is a most fiery sign, high minded and joyful. It is intuitive and sometimes impulsive.  That can mean not looking before one leaps off a cliff of some new adventure.

It also represents the tendency sometimes to say things without filter, to be quite genuine but not always aware of how it is affecting a situation or others.

In the greater world, powerful events will likely continue.

If they happen early in the week they are more about releasing powerful energies that have been building beneath the surface- in nature that may be storms or earthquakes.  In emotions it is about pent up emotions being released.

Later in the week, closer to the New Moon in Sagittarius, events will likely have themes more about breaking away and being liberated. Or they can be about losing control or feeling free to “take the leap”.

Sagittarius can be like the Fool in Tarot.  It will leap off the cliff, with faith as its guiding force.

Sagittarius is also about finding clearer answers or greater meaning, so if you make intention around the New Moon for more clarity, direction, or solution you will have a better chance of finding it then.

So at and after the New Moon in Sagittarius, it is time to get going forward after having gone through a lengthy time of processing, releasing, healing, and feeling so deeply.

This is an important new moon.  You are being freed up to enter a new season of your life, less controlled by your ego, and riding more on your Higher Self’s destiny.

Yes Rome is burning all around us now.  The old world is dying a very painful death.  Please do not get all involved with fear and rage toward the Islamic State or anything else.  If it wasn’t Islamic State it would be something else reminding us of the demons from our past buried deep in humanity’s collective unconscious.

It is time to release the old paradigm of “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth” revengeful rage.  It is time to release the need to always have an enemy to destroy, as enemies are projections of our own inner demons.

“My people are better than your people and enemies of your people” is an old ego story needing to die.  My country, my religion, my people are different than yours but no better or worse. It is my way, not the best way for everyone.

Diversity within Unity is the Age of Aquarius.  Get on the ride.

Till next week,

Leo

Breathing in and Breathing out and Astrology Forecast November 29-December 5

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 28, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week we experienced a Full Moon in Gemini and a Saturn square Neptune aspect.

Saturn square Neptune shows us the polarization between order, boundaries, and limits (Saturn) on the one hand;  and energies that spread with no sense of boundaries or limits (Neptune)on the other hand.

Last week Turkey (weird connection with Thanksgiving) said that a Russian fighter jet entered Turkish territory and so Turkey shot down that airplane.   Crossing state boundaries and putting a stop to it is certainly Neptune and Saturn being played out.

And also a man climbed a fence in order to get to the White House, and he was stopped by guards before he got there.  Again crossing boundaries and then guards putting a stop to it is Neptune square Saturn again.

On Sunday the 29th the Sun in Sagittarius will trigger the Saturn/Neptune square, so this coming week should bring us more issues of boundary crossings or chaos versus order events.

That Sun in Sagittarius conjuncts Saturn, bringing seriousness but also a firmer grasp on solutions and meaning.  The Sun square Neptune, brings a feeling of letting go and going with the flow, but also more confusion and spaciness.

In your personal life, in what ways has the Saturn/Neptune square been playing out?

Have you put up boundaries and limits to people and not had them honored by others?  Have you tried to emotionally connect with others and had them put up big stop signs instead? Are there any issues that have come up around property boundaries?  Have you tried to have your privacy respected and had others plough right through them?

Have your children not respected your rules and limits recently? Now this cannot be just the usual lack of respect for rules and boundaries, but instead a more potent example of your limits and rules not abided by.

Have you recently put up boundaries around sexual behavior?  Have there been any oil spills or leaks or water flooding in your home or other places?

Has there been a feeling of emotions inside you threatening to overwhelm you?   Have others spilled their emotions all over you when you wish they wouldn’t have?

How much now are you open and allowing (Neptune) versus controlled and all set (Saturn)?

Stay aware this week of how Saturn square Neptune may be playing out for you.

We are also now in the last half of the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Scorpio on November 11.  And it has been a most intense lunar cycle both globally and personally.    So many terror attacks in the world since then.

Now as we move through the last half of the lunar cycle, we seek to understand what has been recently happening in the world and in our personal lives.  And we seek to come down more into our bodies and souls to process and heal.

And we can also prepare ourselves for the next lunar cycle, which will begin with a New Moon in Sagittarius on December 11.

That new moon will be especially energized, in part because it is in fiery and expansive Sagittarius, which is ruled by Jupiter.  But it will also be especially energized because Mars will have made an opposition to Uranus just several hours before that new moon.

And that opposition triggers the still pertinent and powerful Uranus/Pluto square.   And a few days before that opposition to Uranus, Mars will be making a most potent and potentially explosive square to Pluto- again triggering  the Uranus/Pluto square.

So relatively speaking, this week could be somewhat tame (though the Saturn/Neptune square may react differently).

It is important now to realize that the power of transformation, which includes very disruptive and painful world events, is here to stay now.

The events that have burst onto our collective world scene have amped up since the eclipses in September, most especially so since the Scorpio New Moon on November 11.

And now we are in a whole new phase of our transformational journey into the Age of Aquarius.   This is a new chapter or new season of our lives.

There is no going back to normal, as the old normal no longer exists.  We can conjure it up in our minds, but our deeper awareness knows it is not real anymore.

More and more our reality changes now, and if we want to be present and connected to the Universe and our soul self, we need to allow these new frequencies in.

Though at first they may seem foreign and difficult to integrate in our hearts and lives, through time they will feel natural and organic.

You all know that even as times change we need things and people that are familiar and allow us to feel safe and secure.  And of course that is fine and needed.

But as we see the world bringing us events that feel threatening, and as our personal lives bring us events or emotions that are disconcerting and take away our security blankets; we need to shift into these new realms while doing our best to keep our feet on the ground with stability.

Both the Uranus/Pluto square and the Saturn/Neptune square represent this transformational process.

We are letting go of the old normal while doing our best to feel safe and secure.

We can do this best when we keep our faith, when we keep our trust in the Universe and the bigger picture.

Everything happens meaningfully, even if at first we can not understand what is happening in the bigger picture.

And even though the ride of transformation can feel painful at times, if we can keep our concentration on the notion of a new birth happening, we can then see the pains as “labor pains” or instead as “demons” at the doorway of our new world.

Transformation always means letting go of that which no longer fits with our soul’s path of growth or evolution.  And it also means we are trusting and allowing in new love and light from the new phase of our lives. Death and Birth are always happening, every moment of our journey here on Earth.  It is our constant reality whether we are noticing or not.

That is why watching our breath can be a very good way to meditate, as it shows us breathing in new life and breathing out that which is being let go of.

When we are presented with a transformational crisis or challenge, the process of releasing the old and dying and allowing in the new births is amplified and intensified.

And now our world is in such a crisis or challenge.  The world events we are witnessing are part of that process. With each event there is an opportunity to release an old tape in our minds, an old belief system or attitude that has kept us stuck in patterns that are self defeating or unsatisfying.

For many it is not wise to stay tuned in to the horror in these world events. For all it is wise to not get too involved and obsessed with such events.

And for all it is wise not to let fear or rage take over our consciousness with such events.

Turn off the TV or stay off the news on the internet or newspaper if it upsets you too much or if it seduces you into fear or rage.

Instead meditate and keep up spiritual practices, exercise and eat healthily, and stay around people who are aware and present but not negative.  Avoid those who are now driven by fear and doom and gloom, even if they are close friends or family.

This may often feel now like both the best and the worst of times. That is in the nature of transformational change.

Till next week,

Leo

Turning up the Rock and Roll Music and Astrology Forecast June 8-14

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 7, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have entered the Mercury Retrograde time period now.   It will last until July 1.

This could be an especially challenging Mercury Retrograde.  That is because Mars will continue to journey through Cardinal sign Libra until it triggers the transformational planets from the Cross: Uranus and Pluto, and also the  degrees of the Cardinal Grand Cross from last April.

It will in that process square transiting Pluto on June 14, touch the exact degrees of the Cardinal Grand Cross from April on June 16-17, and then on June 25 it opposes transiting Uranus.

Triggers are known to touch off issues that have not been fully resolved, and often times these issues can be brought back quite dramatically and intensely.  What came up for you during the March-May period of the Cross’ influence may come back for further processing, but long standing issues from the more long ago past may also come back as part of the Mercury Retrograde influence.

Often during Mercury Retrograde people or memories or dreams remind us of the past, and motivate us to relive sweet and/or bitter times.   Music may also serve the purpose of bringing back feelings or thoughts from days gone by.

Keep in mind that Mercury Retrograde is meant to shift our focus, shift our perceptions, change our mindset so that we can see with new eyes.

But that new sight will not be clear until after Mercury goes back Direct again.  So do not jump to any conclusions, make any rash decisions,  or shift your life direction until Mercury goes back Direct again in July.

That advice is especially pertinent this current Mercury Retrograde period, as the Cardinal Grand Cross will be triggered, potentially causing additional confusion and emotional turmoil.

The ability to find “logic” and objectivity in your usual ways may be compromised at this time.

So it is best if you can to retreat, reflect, and re-member. Use your imagination and heart more, as your left brain’s way of perceiving may not be operating as it usually does.

In the greater world tensions will increase over the next few weeks, and communication issues may get in the way of people truly understanding one another’s position.

There is a restructuring of our world going on now, and rebalancing of power. During the Cardinal Grand Cross influence of March through May, Russia was threatening Western interests in Ukraine, China was becoming more assertive about its interests, and Iran was in the spotlight working out its nuclear issues with world powers.

Israel and the USA were also more at odds with one another around the Palestinian issue, an issue that is now threatening to get more out of hand.

It would not take much now to touch off world storms that could get out of control.

But overall, there is a powerful wave of new light and energy that seeks to penetrate our collective and individual bodies and souls.   When there is a block that stops the light and energy from flowing through, there will then be issues that come up as red flags alerting us to make changes.

That can come in the form of physical problems, emotional upsets, or intense events in our individual lives.   And in the greater world  explosive or seemingly destructive events alert us to the knowledge that something is out of balance, unaligned, corrupted, diseased, and/or toxic, that needs to be healed and transformed.

For instance there are more and more incidents of people going crazy and perpetrating mass murder, in shopping malls, the workplace, schools, military bases, etc.

This is happening because of the dysfunctional and toxic paradigm we are living under, because of the lack of love and truth in our world, because our human priorities are out of whack, in that we care more about our material concerns and our security than we do about real human values.

The energies of the Age of Aquarius are powerful, but human stubbornness is powerful too.  We often fight with all our power to keep things just as they are, no matter what.

We cannot avoid the energies of change, however, especially now as they are so powerful.  But  we can choose to seek alignment with these changes and evolve, or we can instead choose to make our individual wills and egos more important.

Trust the process now, open your heart to the energies, and make intention to stay in your heart no matter what.  If you stay in your heart or at least do not stray for long, you will be able to listen: to others, to the Universe, and to your own deeper soul.

It is most important now, especially as we move through the potential confusion and chaos of Mercury Retrograde and other important aspects now, to let go to the Bigger Picture, even while you are crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s in your life. Do not be limited by the view of the little picture. There is meaning to all that is happening and the little voice inside your soul, the one you are in touch with while meditating or being in nature, will align you and connect you even and especially during life’s storms.

This week, besides Mercury going Retrograde, Neptune changes directions and goes Retrograde on Monday June 9.   So now and for the next several days, things may be more confusing and out of control.  But they also hold the potential for more synchronicity and magic too.

Neptune brings the flow of the inner tides through our consciousness, brings the music of the spheres through our hearts.

If you can stay surrendered and in your heart, not straining your brain for answers, open to the magic, you will be taken into the flow and into the connections that bring all together in Oneness.  There you will be shown the signs and symbols, the synchronicities, the magic.

All is possible, win/win is there for all disputes, all seeming problems have solution or at least meaning.

Later in the week, on Friday the 13th, there is a Full Moon in Sagittarius at 12:11 AM EDT. This particular Full Moon is always sorting through the facts and evidence for meaning and solution.  This Full Moon contains the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Sagittarius. Gemini is about information and facts that are sometimes coming in a fast and scattered pace. Sagittarius is about finding meaning and solution. Gemini and Sagittarius, especially during Mercury Retrograde, can bring issues that are very challenging to make sense of at times.  Gemini is also mental activity and Sagittarius is intuition and inspiration.  So bringing those together to solve problems is important at this Full Moon.

Friday the 13th is sometimes presented in a superstitious way as scary or something to be worried about.  This goes back to a prejudice against the Feminine mysteries and Feminine power.  13 is number of the Feminine, as there are 13 lunar “months” of the year while only 12 solar ones. And if Christ had 13 disciples instead of 12, as many believe Mary Magdalene was the 13th, there would obviously be a new Feminine flavor to the Christ story.

And Friday in may cultures is represented by name as Venus Day like in Italian which is Venerdi or even in English which is Frieda Day or Friday, Frieda being a Goddess similar to Venus.

So celebrate the Feminine this Friday the 13th with the Full Moon.

And then on Saturday June 14 Mars begins to trigger the Grand Cross as it square Pluto

So with all the aspects going on,  you may be challenged to bring your consciousness and “talents” to the “next level”.

All in all we are now in for a ride into more lively,  interesting, spirit evoking energies that may also seem rather scattered, confusing and chaotic at times.

See you next week,
