Navigating the Changing Times and Astrology Forecast August 23-30.

Last week we expressed to you we felt something big was coming. Well last week so much felt big:  Israel attacked from Syria and retaliated; North Korea and South Korea in a dangerous war posture; but mostly the serious downturn of the stock market- down over 1000 points for the week, and with China’s market crashing the world economy is in a precarious position. I believe these big events are still not the biggest we will face. There is more to come.

You know this is only the very beginning of the Eclipse Season of late summer and early autumn 2015.  As we let you know last week the New Moon in Leo on August 14 brought in the early winds of change from the Eclipse Season.

There is much more transformational change on the way this late summer and autumn. There is still Venus Retrograde until September 6.

The current crisis between North and South Korea is happening during Venus Retrograde.  it is a relationship between two halves of the old whole of Korea.  It is almost like they are twin flames.

North and South Korea split and went to war in the early 1950’s.    That split and war was part of the cold war between the USA and Russia.  Russia backed North Korea and the USA backed South Korea.    At the end of the war a truce was made but not a peace settlement. Technically North and South Korea are at war. Their split is very much a result of interference from world powers.

This Venus Retrograde meeting, as the winds of the Eclipse Season begin to blow in, may be pushing the Koreas to a place where they will need to either move closer to peace now or a war.  Eventually they may unite again.

If there is a war there it might mean that the powers of China, Russia, and the USA get involved.  Let us hope not.

The problems with Israel and Syria now are reflective of issues with Iran as Iran is Syria’s sponsor and ally.   You can see how what happens there will also be important for the whole world as some world countries like the USA have allegiance to Israel and others like Russia have allegiance to Iran and Syria.

The economy is very global now and interconnected as you can see how what has been happening in China (the world’s 2nd largest economy next to the USA) is affecting Wall Street and economies all over the world.

How this Eclipse Season plays out is very important to how the world will transform into the Age of Aquarius.

All each of us can do is to enter and stay in consciousness that is connected to love and truth, to healing our Earth, its creatures and the human family.

Each of us is not perfect and will make mistakes, but it is so important that we keep our intention strong to be in our Higher Self even if we leave it sometimes.

The collective situation is dependent on where each of us is in our consciousness.  No one of us can save the world from what it will go through, but we can each do our part and to join with others who feel the same.

We must each stop ourselves from tendencies to get revenge or to let our rage lead the way.  Yes we must let ourselves feel anger enough to stay stop or no, but we do not need to let ourselves be consumed by hatred or deep animosity that will lead to serious conflict.

This is a turning point for humanity and what each of us feels and does is very important now.

This week, as we have just passed through the beginning of the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle that began last week at the New Moon in Leo; we now are headed toward the Full Moon.

That Full Moon will be next Saturday the 29th of August. It will have the Sun in Virgo and the Moon in Pisces.  It will be at 2:35 PM EDT and it will have Jupiter conjunct the Sun in Virgo and Neptune conjunct the Moon in Pisces.

This is normally a very gentle Full Moon, and with Neptune as part of its signature that should keep  it is relatively gentle and speaks to more peaceful energies.  Jupiter is much more spirited but in Virgo it does speak to violence.

The only wild card that day is that Mars will be quincuncx Pluto and that could represent some explosiveness.  But it is not a major planetary configuration.

But the down and yin movement of Virgo and Pisces do speak to the possibility that markets will still be headed downward. If they do for some reason level off or move upward this week, then we can still expect more downward movement during the eclipses and Autumn season.

On Sunday the 23rd the Sun goes into Virgo for a month’s stay.  Time to begin to be more humble, simple and real.   Order is needed more now and hard work is aligned with the planets.  Be careful not to get too skeptical or even cynical now. Moon in Sagittarius should help you stay positive for a couple of days.

Late Monday into early Thursday, as the Sun will be in Virgo and Moon in Capricorn,  it is time sober up, get organized and down to work.    Whatever has been boiling over will begin to settle in a bit into more reason.

Virgo is the last month of Summer here in the Northern Hemisphere and it represents the motivation to get ready for the autumn and a downturn of energies. Though you will see the kids go back to the Virgo regimentation of school and you may feel more motivated to fix things up, get maintenance, checkups or healings; remember there is still time to enjoy what is left of summer.

After the Full Moon next Saturday, we enter the waning half of the lunar cycle.  We will be getting ourselves ready for the intensity of the first eclipse:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 13.

Venus Retrograde is also coming into its last phase. On September 6, it will go back Direct- still in Leo. That means that relationship issues will still be in the spotlight of our lives, but the focus will be on finding solution and getting to the heart of the matter.

Old relationships need to heal or people need to move on from each other and Liberate one another.  Hanging on is to the detriment of free spirit. Anger keeps people connected in a very dysfunctional manner.

New relationships will need to begin to get more real.  As we get closer to the end of the Venus Retrograde cycle, we will start to feel more of a need to define these new relationships.    But do your best not to jump to any conclusions either way. Wait for the Venus Retrograde cycle to play its way out.

Some of these relationships that just started around the Venus Retrograde time period are likely past life connections, as Venus Retrograde often suggests past relationships connected to past relationship patterns.

We are being given the opportunity to reexamine our relationship patterns so we can heal and transform them.  That will help us to have better relationships with our current partners or friends or to be more prepared for future relationships.

I know things have not been easy lately for so many of us.  Our issues are being thrown into our faces.  Please do your best to stay centered in the knowledge that all is happening for a reason and that love and truth govern our Universe.

Hate and revenge are the old world and the Old Testament, and keeping that paradigm as a guiding star keeps the old world alive.  Hate and revenge hurt us more than they hurt others as our bodies and souls are stressed and decay with these toxic energies.  Try to find and bring out the best in others no matter what.  Or let them go completely if you cannot.

How we handle relationships tells us so much about the truth of who we are.  Change your vibration and you will attract better people and situations into your life.

Till next week,

Leo

To War or Not to War and Astrology Forecast September 8-21.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 7, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

A very powerful Autumn Equinox passage is two weeks away, on Sunday September 22.    Pluto will be changing directions and making sextile to Saturn right before the Equinox.  Pluto mythologically is the guardian of the Hades underworld.   Saturn is the the force of gravity.

Those strong pulls downward limit our desires and abilities to expand and fly as free spirits.  They will be a part of the signature for our Autumn season 2013.

For now, on a greater world basis, the drama around Syria and the Middle East is building.    Deeper and heavier planetary formations begin to blow in this week with Mars in Leo square Saturn in Scorpio on Monday, Venus in Scorpio on Wednesday, and Mars quincunx Pluto on Wednesday also.

President Obama makes his case for starting war in Syria with the American people and Congress during those aspects this week.     Mars in Leo represents the desire for action, and Saturn in square to that Mars represents the opposition to that desire.    And remember that Obama is a Sun in Leo, so you can expect a strong opposition to his desire for taking action in Syria.

The Venus in Scorpio and Mars quincunx Pluto show a strong possibility that energies will move more toward conflict later in the week.

That brings up the question of how much is meant to be and how much we can choose and determine.

Having the ability to choose our destiny is an important part of being a human, and a large part of what it is to be an American. Humans used to believe they were controlled by the planets, that they met their fate in the mirror of the planetary movements.

But now humans are more empowered and confident they can control their fate and control nature as well.

The best way to look at the planetary movements is like a “weather report”.    There are certain natural waves of energy moving into our world that predispose us to experience certain events, feeling certain feelings, and taking certain actions. But within and from those weather patterns, we make choices and pick directions; and those choices then have influence on how future planetary formations will manifest.

So let’s look at the coming September aspects, and even more so the Autumn Eclipses, Comet Ison and Uranus square Pluto aspects as a building of a “storm” coming our way in the form of world events.

Is a war on Syria inevitable? Is a strong downturn of the economy inevitable? That combination would be a “perfect storm” of world events.

If one was looking at the coming astrological aspects years ahead of time,  one would know,  with the  changing of ages and Uranus square Pluto 2012-2016, that much turmoil of transformation would be needed in order for necessary huge transformation to erupt in our world.

But the details would be fuzzy so far ahead of time.  But only months ahead of time, Syria and the economy have shown promise of being the triggers for major change in our world.

Major change is inevitable. That is part of changing ages and paradigms, and it is obvious how much needs to change to bring an Age of Aquarius and its values of liberation, power to the people, equality, and Diversity in Unity.

But is war with Syria inevitable, and is it inevitable that it will expand into a regional and world war?

It does seem now that most of the world’s citizens are against this war, so maybe that is a strong enough energy field and human voice to hold back the tide of many world leaders who are determined to instigate this war?

Some tides are already in motion and nothing can stop the wave.   This one appears to be that way, but I do not know for sure.  One thing I do know is that if most of the people in this country and world stay strong in their opposition to this war, that that will be the turning point of transformation into the Aquarian Age.

But how much do we still bow to the king?  Will President Obama persuade the people in a speech Tuesday night that war is “right” and to be patriotic?   Will he also persuade Congress that they need to be supportive of this war?

Even if Pandora’s box opens into full out world war and economic downturn, “we the people” should know we cannot let the old world and paradigm to continue any longer.  The need to change the world paradigm will become more urgent. Old world ways and new world ways will not have much middle ground anymore.

Humans are getting stronger and stronger, wiser and wiser all the time, all over the world.  The information revolution, with the internet showing the way, with social media bringing us all together, empowers “we the people” in ways never before seen.

The Arab Spring showed us this power.

But of course the old world of separation, domination, “dog eat dog” survival of the fittest paradigm, still has much control of our collective consciousness and world. Look at Egypt to see how the military has at least temporarily taken control again of that country.

The Military and Economic might of that old world is immense.

But the power of the Universe and the consciousness and will of individual people in community will continue to get stronger.

But old world powers will resist this change with their might.  Remember last week when they passed a new law potentially limiting our ability to protest?  Is that not curious when seen in the light of a coming war the people are not in favor of?

Will Obama persuade the people and Congress to go to war?   And if not will the Empire decide to do it anyway?

You can see how this very powerful Autumn Eclipse Season is already beginning to form and how important it will be for our world and human family.

In your personal life this week, the Mars square Saturn aspect suggests that pushing too hard for any agenda will inspire strong opposition.  Someone may be pushing you or you may be pushing someone else in a “tug-of-war”.  Listen to what someone really wants, not what they are showing.   And if you want something really badly, go inside your self to see what that is all about.  Are you respecting someone else’s boundaries.

Venus in Scorpio in the middle of the week suggests relationships need to stop pushing issues “under the rug” of suppression, and instead work things out from a deeper emotional place. Venus will stay in Scorpio until October 7.

The Sun is still in Virgo until the Autumn Equinox on September 22, so there is still much emphasis on working out details, putting things in order, getting back to work, fixing what needs to be fixed, simplifying our lives, and being more grateful and humble.

I will be taking a vacation and not writing next Saturday, but will be bringing in the Autumn Equinox with you the next Saturday.   Please keep in mind that the days leading up to the Equinox that week should be very intense and emotional,  as there is a Full Moon in Pisces, as Pluto changes to Direct motion while it sextiles Saturn.

I will be doing a Youtube video forecast for the Autumn Eclipse Season on September 26, which you can see on Saturday the 28th of September.

See you in two weeks again,

Leo
