Navigating the Changes and Astrology Forecast July 1-7

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on June 30, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have now slipped into Summer Eclipse Season 2018, though we are about a week away from the first of three eclipses:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12.

Mars went Retrograde last week (where it will stay until August 27), so getting clear about what one really wants and where one really wants to go may be rather illusive for the next couple of months during Eclipse Season.   And Mercury will be going Retrograde on July 26 making matters even more foggy after that.

Eclipse Season will begin to intensify next week with the Solar Eclipse in Cancer.

People sometimes get into fear mode in expectation of Eclipses. Yes Eclipses represent powerful times, but that power is for change, and not usually for personal disaster.

Yes one’s status quo comfort zone will likely get shaken up, but the purpose is to get one to “be on one’s toes” in anticipation of transformation and change.

There can be breakdowns of old ways that no longer serve you, yet there are also usually breakthroughs into new ways to perceive, new consciousness, new ideas, new ways of being in one’s life.

It is really “normal” to try to hold onto what feels like security and stability for as long as one can, even if another part of us knows and wants change.

So the Universe creates events that will help us to get “unstuck”.   And the degree of intensity for change that we receive is in direct proportion to how stuck we are, whether we know it or not.

If we are ready (our deeper soul) for our greater potential destiny of purpose, we will be brought events that will assist us in letting go of that which is holding onto our past, the passing Chapter of our lives.

Right now with all the changes in the greater world, we are each a microcosm of that world change.

The changes that are coming our way are bringing us into a New Life Chapter, a chapter that has different purpose, new relationships, new work focus, and even perhaps new living situations.

A huge portal opened up into this New Chapter on April 15 this year, and there is still much pouring through that portal for us collectively and individually.

And now during this new Eclipse Season, there is an acceleration of energies of change and transformation, which means there is more push toward making life changes aligned with this New Chapter on Earth for the human family.

It is time to let go to another level, to release where one used to be with one’s life.  And it is time to open one’s heart and mind for the new waves of change wanting to pour into our worlds.

That does not mean you have to throw all security and stability away;  in fact it is helpful if you can keep your feet on the ground no matter what is changing and transforming.  Some things from your present life will be taken with you into the New Chapter.

So as we navigate through this Summer Eclipse Season 2018, we need to keep our heads up looking for meaning and perspective, not down in fear dreading what is coming our way.

The Full Moon in Capricorn this past week signified the beginning of Summer Eclipse Season 2018, but it also begins the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Gemini on June 13.

So we are winding down while we are gearing up.  Signs and symbols showing us the meaning of Eclipse Season this summer are and will be appearing.

Most of the changes will not be a complete surprise, as issues showing potential change have been already percolating.  What is happening for this Eclipse Season are events and motivations that assist us in releasing what we are have been holding too tightly.

It will also help us to let in the new without so much resistance.  It is becoming more clear now what needs to shift and change, but the energy for that change has not been strongly here for us.

These next couple of months will give us more energies for change, and will bring issues to the forefront for us to acknowledge and work with.

Keep in mind that with Mars and soon Mercury being Retrograde, we may need to process more before moving fully forward with the changes.

Leaping before we look and not examining the red flags that show is not a good idea.  Yes energies of change and transformation are and will be swirling through our consciousness and lives, but it is important to cross our t’s and dot our i’s as we go through the process of change.

In the greater world, there is so much changing. The “civil war” between very polarized American cultures will intensify.  Extremists will make an even greater impact on our world.  Both major American political parties are fractured, dysfunctional, and too much controlled by monied interests and corporations.

We need to return to “we the people” and you can see how much will need to change for that to happen.

The “power structures” of our world are in the process of deep transformation as well. Trade wars, immigration issues, and new alliances are shifting the power balance in our world.

The Middle East and Far East Asia are the areas of our world that are most susceptible to conflict and power struggles.

Keep in mind that the Age of Aquarius requires a Diversity Within Unity world network for its lifeblood.

The Military Economic Complex Empire of this world will go through destructive forces meant to transform our world into a “we the people” economy and a “power structure” based on equality.  For instance the UN gives more say and power to the countries with the most money and weapons of mass destruction.  This must change.

It is certainly easy to see how much will have to change in order for us to manifest that new world and Age.

This week Chiron changes directions from Direct to Retrograde on July 4. Chiron is a bridge between the outer transformational planets and our more traditional planets from Saturn on in.  Chiron’s bridge helps us heal from that split between our divine self and our more creature self.  Humans are from both the Sky and Earth, so to speak. Our ancestors are also from both places, not just the Earth.

As Chiron goes retrograde this week in Aries, we are reminded how the healing between  these different aspects of Self can best be actualized when we are true to how we were created, not trying to be what we are programmed to be to “fit in “.

This week shows us the beginnings of Eclipse Season, and next week will show us the first of 3 eclipses on July 12: A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer very closely opposite Pluto in Capricorn. That is a very powerful and intense configuration.

Till next week,

Leo

Eclipse Season, Mars Retrograde and Astrology Forecast June 24-30

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on June 23, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week as we move into Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

On Thursday June 28 there is a Full Moon in Capricorn closely conjunct Saturn at 12:53 AM EDT.

The first actual eclipse (first of 3 this season) will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12.  It will be very closely in opposition to Pluto.

The June 28 Full Moon in Capricorn conjunct Saturn opens up Eclipse Season with a strong pull to having limits, strong definition, strict rules, and firm boundaries.

Since in this Full Moon, the Sun is in Cancer directly opposite the Moon conjunct Saturn, we can expect Cancer permissiveness, unconditional attitudes, empathy, and openness to be a counter force to the Moon/Saturn strictness.

This will be a theme to reckon with during Eclipse Season- both personally and globally. Already we can see how nations are wrestling with open or closed boundaries for immigrants. This is especially so in America and Europe.

And in other places like Ukraine and East Asia, there are boundary disputes for who claims what land for their country.  And in North and South Korea, there is hope by many for the boundary between them to be erased.

These issues will be “more in our faces” during this Eclipse Season, starting this week.

In personal lives you may be pushed to decide even more than usual, when to “put your foot down” to stop others or to protect yourself or to be clear what you take and what you will not take from others.  Your boundaries will be pushed by others.

Politically speaking, liberal and conservative viewpoints will be showing up clearly this week and during Eclipse Season. Capricorn/Saturn is symbolically conservative and Cancer is more symbolically liberal. That does not mean all Cancers are liberal and all Capricorns are conservative.

Interestingly, in the USA natal chart from July 4 1776, the USA has its Sun in Cancer in conflicting square to its Saturn in Libra. This is representative of the constant war between liberal and conservative viewpoints in America. Squares tend to show that each side of the square is strongly opposed without much empathy for the other position.

This is so true of American politics, most especially now, as there is an obvious culture war going on.

And in this Summer Eclipse Season, beginning this week, we will experience that battle building in intensity. Calls for impeachment will get stronger.

Also this week, besides the Eclipse Season initiation with the Full Moon in Capricorn on the 28th,  there is the changing of direction of Mars from Direct to Retrograde.

Mars goes Retrograde approximately every two years for around 2 months each time.  This Mars Retrograde period will last from June 26 to August 27- at which time it will go back Direct.

In personal lives there will be a tendency with Mars Retrograde to give pause so one can better know what one wants and desires.  Mars Retrograde also shows us the condition of our personal will and to the issue of standing up for ourselves, and what we believe in.

It will also bring up issues of being true to our authentic Self or of compromising that truth in order to accommodate what others want from us.

Mars Retrograde also brings up a review of anger issues and competitive instincts.  It brings out alpha personality more strongly too, as well as issues of power and force.

Mars Retrograde will also bring up questions of what direction we want to move toward, and it may very well have us question the direction we have previously chosen.

On the global scene, there will be a questioning of issues of conflict or war. Previous stances of peace may be questioned. Previous stances of war may be questioned.

As this Mars Retrograde period will coincide with Eclipse Season, issues with North Korea and most especially the Middle East will be in the spotlight and heating up.

Of course we all know this is a critical time for questioning the state of our country and world.  Old paradigms and institutions, old programmed beliefs and ways of being are breaking down in order to allow new brighter, more loving, truth telling energies to pour into our consciousness and lives.

Eclipse Seasons always bring both breakdowns and breakthroughs. The only thing assured is that status quo familiarity is not safe during Eclipse Seasons.

Some parts of your life, especially with Mars Retrograde added to this Eclipse Season, will be questioned and/or challenged.

If you have planets closely connected to the planetary positions of the Eclipses, you will be more affected than others.

Keep in mind and heart the knowledge that all these shakeups or changes are aligned with your deeper soul, nature, and the Universe. Old beliefs, patterns, people, etc. who do not fit with your personal evolution and transformation are the ones that are threatened.

All is happening meaningfully and with the true needs of your soul.  Sometimes we get too set in our ways, and these Eclipses assist us in moving out of our being stuck, trapped, bored, clingy, and stopped from growing.

Often we have choice to not move with where the winds are blowing us to go, but we then are stunted in our growing and transforming, and something in our souls and spirits starts to die.

Also this week, besides the Full Moon in Capricorn and Mars going Retrograde, we also encounter Mercury moving out of Cancer and into Leo on June 28/29.

Mercury is our mind, our thinking, and our ability to communicate. When in Cancer feeling and thinking tend to merge and a more holistic perception and viewpoint emerge in our minds and ways of communicating.

And when Mercury is in Leo, there is more “light” in our thinking, and the mind tends to be creative and inspired. We also communicate more creatively and spontaneously.

Mercury will stay in Leo much longer than usual, until August 29, much more than its usual one month in a sign.

So begin the ride of Eclipse Season this week, even though the greatest intensity will likely not occur till closer to the first actual Eclipse on July 12.  

We will of course get deeper into the Eclipses as the Season continues. You can get some perspective on this Eclipse Season with the video I made earlier this month. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QkSNDn0QCg&feature=youtu.be

Till next week,

Leo

Solstice Turning Point and Astrology Forecast June 19-25

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 18, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The next couple of weeks will bring us some important planetary movement, with new doors ready to open for us.

There is a Full Moon in Sagittarius Monday, which is the same day as the annual Summer Solstice and a renewal of the mutable Grand Cross.    

Next Sunday the 26th brings an intense Jupiter trine Pluto.  And most importantly on June 29 Mars finally goes back Direct again.

The first turning point is this Monday June 20.  It is more important than the usual Summer Solstice as there is Full Moon and Mutable Grand Cross also.

Summer Solstice is always a major turning point in the year as it begins a new Season in the northern hemisphere, Summer.  The exact moment of Summer Solstice is 6:34 PM EDT.

Light/yang minutes of the day are at their greatest then, with dark/yin minutes at their least.

Metaphorically, the active outer directed energies are supreme, with the inner oriented, more subtle and subdued energies at their lowest in expression.

After today the dark rises and the light falls slowly until Autumn Equinox when light and dark are equal.

Now at the Summer Solstice people are generally more excited and “up” than at Winter Solstice for instance.

This year there is a Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius at 7:02 AM on the 20th.  This is also a lively happening, stimulating needs to figure things out through relating and communicating.

Also there is a mutable Grand Cross with Mercury in Gemini making aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius, Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Virgo.

It willl be easy for people to leap into things they would usually think about at other times.

Leaping could bring positive results because of being outside the usual boxes- or negative results because one did not look before they leaped or talked.

The span of influence covered by these planetary movements on June 20 is about 5 days, from the 18th to the 23rd, with emphasis on the 20th.

Some astrologers are predicting a really crazy time period around the 20th, but can it be much more crazy than it has been lately?

Nevertheless, look for the planetary movements around the 20th to open some doors, at least in your consciousness, in preparation for Mars going Direct on the 29th of June.

After the 29th a huge portal or door will open,, allowing you to get off the pause button in your life.

You will more easily move forward and make decisions and feel like life has opened back up for you. This does not mean that magically on the 29th all your troubles or frustrations will be eliminated.

It means that energetically things begin to open up- slowly at first then picking up more steam later.  You should be able to feel the shift around the 29th.

Since we last wrote to you the tragedy in Orlando erupted into our world and consciousness.

Such pain and suffering and horrifying fear were felt.  People’s real attitudes and feelings toward LGBT people, toward Islam, toward security fears, and toward guns opened up into the light.

There are so many important discussions that need to be had now in our American community.   But there is such a lack of flexibility and open-mindedness and respect for others’s opinions in the way.

We  are truly a disfunctional community that so deperately needs to come together at this crucial time for humanity on Earth.

We are in transiton between paradigms and ages, and I am afraid that these horrifying events will continue to happen until we come together to find answers that are aligned with the new age we are entering.

We will have a new President elected in less than 6 months now, as President Obama and his family prepare for life outside the White House.

None of us agree with everything his Presidency accomplished and we know little was done to break up the dominance of the Military/Industrial Complex that runs our democracy and lives.

But his presidency should be appreciated for the many changes that are aligned with the Age Of Aquarius.

There has been a respect shown for other cultures,religions, and nations, an honoring of those who were previously looked down on and abused, a thoughtful approach to challenges and problems, a finesse-full style of governing.

With what we likely have coming in contrast, he will be missed.

For now as he is about to leave, one can see more chaos ready to enter.  And more reactionary control measures to hold down the out of control events.

Right wing nationalism is growing stronger in Europe now as in the Uniter States.

At the same time the New Age is bursting at the seams, ready to bring more love and light in a big way.

Concentrate on that and you will be alright.  Do not get too focused on the horrible dramas that continue to play out. Yes feel the commpassion for those who are suffering, but do not let yourself be overcome with fear or rage.

Most people will be swept up by the drama, the strong emotions, the hatred and fear of those who are being demonized.

The only demon to be fought is our own human desire to  have a demonized enemy and be filled with hatred and fear for them.   As always much of the real work now is internal, with our own beliefs and attitudes.

This week the Summer Solstice brings with it the Sun moving into Cancer.  It is time for family and friends, for being in safe and protected environments where you feel nurtured and “seen” and appreciated.

Mars Direct is soon now.  Get your inner and outer worlds prepared for the movement forward after June 29.  Summer Solstice/Full Moon will be a turning point in that process.

Till next week,

Leo

Time to start thinking if you want to be involved in the webinars in August.

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday August 6 at 1 PM  EDT.  The series will continue Saturdays August 13 and 20th at 1 PM to finish up the series.   Each class will last approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.
I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world events  will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is to be paid prior to the classes.

Letting Go of the Baggage and Astrology Forecast June 12-18

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 11, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Life is on hold until after Mars goes Direct on June 29. This does not mean you can do nothing in the interim;  it just means there is a feeling and reality that efforts to direct one’s attention to big steps forward are difficult if not impossible.

While we are waiting for the gate into a new phase of life to open, many of us are facing some real challenges. In fact for many their most sensitive and diffcults wounds or traumas have been triggered.

They are caught up in emotions that have been overwhelming their usual stable sanity.

Seems to me that we are cleaning up as much baggage as we can before we face new challenges and opportunities on the other side of the gate.

So go to your healers and counselors now to assist your journey or spend more time in meditation or spiritual practices now.

I know the world seems crazy now, but it is really a result of changing tides from one age to another.  We  are collectively and individually in transition and working to heal, release and let go of old tapes and conditioned programs in our heads and hearts.

On the contrary some of you are enjoying the ride into this new chapter of life.   Emotional baggage has not surfaced in any difficult way as of yet and the world’s troubles and confusions have not caught up to you yet.

But make no mistake, world craziness will accelerate soon, with important world events screaming for attention.

The Middle East will very soon erupt explosively, with emphasis on Israel, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, Iran, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia.

The political presidential landscape will get even crazier as scandals,  illegalities, corruptions, and secrets break out in the open.

Our global economy will face great challenges soon also.

At the same time protests and revolutionary energies and actions will increase exponentially.   Spritual enlightenment, synchronicites and awakenings will multiply.  People will have a much stronger sense of unity with their fellow human, as we all are motivated to change the world for the better.

The astrological reflection of this current change sits mainly with Saturn square Neptune which is good for this whole year but exact this week Friday the 17th of June.

As we have stated in previous forecasts,  Order and boundaries and status quo (Saturn) are challenged by disorder, open boundaries, confusion, chaos and change (Neptune).

We have mentioned immigration issues and redrawn state boundaries as part of this Saturn/Neptune process. And to add to this theme, later this month, Brits will be voting on staying or leaving the European Union.  That vote will greatly affect the economic stablity of Europe and beyond.

So much is changing, yet some like Donald Trump are wanting to turn back the clock  to the ’50s in America, before civil rights breakthroughs or globalism.

Do we need to stop to turn back the clock for awhile, or is it time to go further with revolutionary and evolutionary progress.

Voters in the United States will be letting us know their feelings on the matter come November.

In addition to Saturn/Neptune and Mars Retrograde, we are approaching Summer Solstice with a Full Moon joining it on June 20. We will talk more about that next week.

This week Neptune ( as it is squaring Saturn) changes directions to go retrograde on Monday the 13th.  This puts Neptune vibes in the psychic airwaves.  Neptunes is inner directed, aligned with the inner spiritual plane and rules psychic insights, insights in general,  fogginess and confusion, gentle poetic feelings, drugs, alcohol, chaos, and escapism.

If you are taking the Higher Self route of spiritual connection, it wil be best this week to let go and surrender to that which is greater, to trust the Universe, and to allow the process to play itself out without needs to control or dominate or think too much to figure it all out.

The Sun makes “minor” aspects to Uranus and Mars on Tuesday putting emphasis on independence, self expression, and empowerment.  It is time to stop being a doormat and to speak up.

Venus moves into Cancer on Friday the 17th.  It will stay in Cancer for about a month.  As it leaves Gemini, heart energies shift from light and lively to Cancerian softness and nurturance.

It is time to go deeper in your intimacies with loved ones, to open your heart and trust again.  This trust will allow you to be more vulnerable, which will open you up to greater nurturance from others.

It will also open your heart up to those who need care and concern from you, so you can give them the nurturance they need also.

Mars makes a quincunx (150 degree) angle to Uranus on Saturday the 18th. Time to break out of the box and let more assertive revolutionary energy into your consciousness and bones.  Life is changing and so are you.

Late June and July are lunching pads for new beginnings and startups.  Best now to heal your wounds and traumas as best you can, so you can have less baggage to haul around in this new Era of our lives.

And then in the 2020’s The Age of Aquarius comes into its own.

Till next week,

Leo

Mutable Grand Cross New Moon and Astrology Forecast June 5-12

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 4, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are experiencing an important New Moon in Gemini on June 4 at 11 PM EDT.   The lunar cycle it begins will stretch through Mars going Direct on June 29.   And most importantly it forms a Mutable Grand Cross that includes Saturn square Neptune.

The Grand Cross has the Sun, Moon, and Venus in Gemini;   Saturn opposing those planets in Sagittarius;  Neptune squaring both those position in Pisces;  and Jupiter opposing Neptune and squaring the other planets from Virgo.

Grand crosses pull us in 4 different directions. The best way to handle one is to let go and take the ride, not try too hard to figure things out or control things.

In this case the 3 Gemini planets seek to receive and deliver information; Saturn in Sagittarius seeks to put information together into a defined opinion or conclusion;  Neptune in Pisces seeks to let go and trust;  Jupiter in Virgo seeks order.

All these planets together in mutable signs tell us to let go to the winds of change.  There is so much change in the air now as we all adjust to this new chapter of experience we find ourselves in.

As we gather new information and insights, we are searching  for ways to find some answers and conclusions.  But there is a tendency now to focus too much on solving issues. This can bring us to mental overload and being obsessed.   Neptune seeks to help us to surrender our chattering minds or to find escapes or indulge in addictions. It is best now to trust the process while believing the answers will come in at just the right time.

This Grand Cross New Moon, however, should be good for interesting conversations, for lively discussions with differences in opinion.

It may also be a good time for new ideas or ways of thinking and seeing things.

This is the last New Moon before Mars goes Direct, and it represents us revving up our engines before we drive more fully forward after June 29.

This is also a good time to be aware of messages from spirit, to be aware of signs, symbols, and synchronicities.   One should be open to changes of mind too.

Saturn square Neptune within the Grand Cross shows us order versus disorder and boundaries and limits versus openness and porousness.

The greater world is in such disorder now trying to find its way.  Ther is an old system that is running out of steam.  There is little honesty, integrity, and heart inside the empty old structures.

The Republican and Democrat parties are representative of this old system.  Bernie Sanders is a voice outside the sytem, as up to this year he has indenified with being an Independent Senator.

The Libertarian and Green parties also represent more pure and uncorrupted voices outside the system.  But how much chance do its candidates have? If the dominating and controlling debate committees run by the Democrat and Republican parties found a place on the stage for other parties to participate in Presidential debates, the American public would benefit greatly.

But I think you can see the Saturn/Neptune square playing out in the presidential race.  The Old Guard has been trying to maintain the old order, while candidates like Trump and Sanders are bringing new ways that are bringing with them more chaos and disorder and even riots.

As we get into the political conventions this summer, order versus disorder wil play out even more, and who knows how it will all pan out in this New Era.

In the greater world, and especially the Middle East, Order versus Chaos will continue to play out. Islamic State has broken apart old state borders and threatens more chaos. A very conservative Israeli government and an increasingly desperate Palestinian community shows potential greater conflict also.

China in the far east has been building new places in the ocean that it claims it owns while other countries strongly disagree. And Taiwan is now, with its new President, showing greater signs of independence from China.

And other countries and immigration will continue this breaking down of old borders and boundaries.

This is all meant to be as we leave the Pisces Age for the Age of Aquarius.   We are in a very intense transition between ages,  and the old will continue to break down, though leaders will sometimes stubbornly and violently hold onto the way it used to be.

This is not about the bad guys from a bad age fighting the good guys from a good age,though it may feel like that sometimes.

It is really like nature changing its seasons, except more intensely and dramatically.

Thus if you are a progressive who has much anger against more conservative voices in our world, keep in mind that they represent the part of all of us that is resistant to big change, that holds onto the old and comfortable.

They are not the enemy.

And if you are more conservative and like the world just as it is. do not demonize those who want change as crazy communists or luny dreamers bringing unnnatural chaotic ways into your life.

This week you should be taken out of old ruts and depressed feelings, as this is a stimulating if perhaps confusing New Moon Grand Cross.

Sometimes old ruts can feel like a comfort zone even if not good for us.  Do your best now to let these winds take you out of the ruts.

But it will not be time yet to move fully forward personally or globally. That will wait until July and August.

Till next week,

Leo

The webinar series will begin on August 6 and continue on August 13 and 20.  $125  for the series, payable before the classes.

Chaos versus Order and Astrology Forecast May 29-June 4

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 28, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

Mercury is now Direct but Mars is still Retrograde until June 29.

Thinking and perceiving should be getting clearer, decisions should be easier to make; but it is not time yet to fully move forward into this new phase of your life.

Nevertheless, by the end of this week there will be more spirited energy to woork with, increased mental activiity and a growing need to connect with others and to communicate.

But first we deal with the last quarter of the lunar cycle, starting Sunday the 29th of May.  With the Moon being in Pisces that day, the pull will be inward and yin-ward, processing all that has happened over the last weeks.

Last quarters of lunar cycles are for processing, going inward and preparing for new beginnings at the New Moon.

The next New Moon will be in Gemini on Saturday June 4.

Before that efforts to get moving faster forward could be thwarted or held back.

Also this week the Sun will be making aspect to Saturn and Neptune, This will touch off an important aspect this year:   Saturn square Neptune. The next exact aspect between them will be on June 17.

Saturn and Neptune have a cycle between them that lasts over 100 years. The most recent cycle began as they were conjunct each other (in the same place in the zodiac) in the late 1980s and early ’90s.

Saturn is law and order, rules and regulations, boundaries and limits. Neptune is surrender and allowing, openness and trust, no boundaries or limits. At its zenith Saturn is right wing fascism. At its zenith Neptune is anarchy.

While Saturn says no under all circumstances, Neptune is open to everyone and everything.

In our country this Saturn square Neptune aspect has been manifesting as thougts of building a wall to keep out immigrants versus letting everyone in.

In Europe it translates into open borders for immigrants from the Middle East versus strict nationalism keeping all but natives out..

In the late ’80s and early ’90s, at the last conjunction between Saturn and Neptune, the Soviet Union was breaking down and South Africa was breaking down apartheid’s oppression over black people.

So though they fought for old rules and ways, eventually the boundaries were broken down in each instance.

It happened relatively gracefully in each instance. Sometimes, however, Neptune can be quite chaotic and even anarchic if it does not see “progressive”results. Saturn can be quite oppressive and fascistic if rules and boundaries are being broken.

The Neptune/Saturn square is triggered this week, as the Sun makes aspect to both Neptune and Saturn.

Watch for the above themes to be playing out.

Saturn is also structure, laws and institutions. Neptune circumvents structures as water moves around, through and under rocks and solid structures. Neptune is mythologically “god of the ocean” and signifies water.

As Neptune and Saturn do their “square” dance with one another, there may be large protests or even riots. This aspect is intensely in effect all this year.

At its worst there can be martial law (Saturn) or complete anarchy (Neptune).

What Russia is doing in many of its old Baltic states- like Ukraine- may be in part to bring back the remnants of the old Soviet Union.

Some countries now are symbolic of Saturn/Neptune as their boundaries are more unclear: Iraq, Syria, and LIbya.

As we change ages old borders and rules and paradigms are meant to transform.  Our world is already looking and feeling differently and will continue ot do so.  By the 2020’s we will not recognize our world now in the same way.  Personal lives are changing radically also.

In your own life what structures are coming undone in your life? What old rules you used to live by don’t feel right anymore? Are you too permisive or too strict with your children, mate, family, or friends?  Do you have “open borders” ot yoru heart or is your heart closed?

On June 4 at 11 PM there is a New Moon in Gemini. This should give some much needed energy to those who have felt shut down or depressed lately. The mind especially will be energized and teaching and learning are encouraged over the next month. Gemini also is more social than its predecessor Taurus. It is quite the communicator and talker and can deliver information like a pure journalist (which is hard to find nowadays).

This New Moon in Gemini means it is time to move forward, but watch your step on anything important as Mars (planet of action and forward movement) is still Retrograde. Your big steps forward into new and important places waits till July and beyond. The New Era is held in abeyance.

This New Era is leading to the Age of Aquarius.  There is nothing to stop this wave of change.

Nevertheless, we humans do have input on how this will all turn out.  Do we fight to the death (literally) to keep the old ways or do we open ourselves up to deep healing and transformation.

President Obama was the first American president to ever visit Hiroshima Japan where we dropped an atomic bomb, killing almost 100,000 people the vast majority innocent civilians.  A few days later we dropped another atomic bomb on Nagasaki, killing another 100,000 people.

To his credit President Obama went there to pay respects ot those who suffered and died as a result of our tragic bombing.  An apology would have been better.

But these weapons of mass destruction represent our collective human hatreds and unconscious desires to destroy our selves and our world.

We can hope and pray that our collective consciousness evolves enough to let in the light and love of the Age Of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

 I am officially changing the webinar dates from beginning June 4 to beginning August 6 then continuing on August 13, and 20.  Here is what the webinar will continue to be:

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.

 I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world evetns will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is $120 to be paid prior to the classes.  Fee will transacted through PayPal or check to my address. Please write me at soulus@aol.com for more information and ot sign up.

Waiting in Transition and Astrology Forecast May 8-14

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 7, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in a holding pattern now, waiting for the call to move forward.  Mars and Mercury are Retrograde: Mercury till May 22 and Mars till June 29.

As we just passed through a New Moon in Taurus while all this Retrograde business is going on, we need to be in “get moving” mode even if you do not know where to go.

So get things done around the house, get your finances in order, run errands, clean up the old both physically and mentally/emotionally.

Taurus is a grounded, practical sign; but it is also a sign that appreciates the body and Earth.  It sees much of life through its senses, smelling and touching and tasting.  It loves to enjoy its body through comfort also, so spas and hammocks work well for them.

Since it is “Taurus time” for all of us now, it is a good time for each of us to do what Taurus likes and needs to do.

Since we gotta wait before moving more fully into the new era of our lives, it is good now to keep busy; but it is even more important to do inner work.

It is time with Mercury and Mars retrograde, to feel your past, to do some healing, to release and let go what represents the old era of your life.

It will behoove you to do this inner work, as you do not need baggage from the past as you move into the new era of your life.

Of course one cannot totally remove what one has been traumatized or hurt by in one’s past; but now at the Retrogrades and while you are in transition between eras, the winds of the Universe are at your back for inner healing and release.

In the greater world things have also slowed down, with no big events to speak of.

Politically in the USA the movement for electing President is slowing down as it is more obvious who the candidates will be.

But we do not know for sure who will win or what the process to get there will be like.

Our movement forward is on hold now with conversation about who will support Trump, with questions about Clinton’s troubles with her emails, with unknowns about how Sanders and his values will fit into the democratic platform at the convention.

But much more important than the personalities is what each candidate represents for our world, what direction America is moving toward.

Who wins the Presidency will show us loud and clear who we are now and what we value.

And now during the Retrograde, without the distraction of important primaries anymore, we will be able to truly get to know who the candidates are and what they represent.

On the surface Trump is a wealthy brash celebrity.  What else does he represent on a more substantial level?

Clinton is a woman and part of the Clinton political royalty, but what does she represent on a deeper more substantial level?

With Sanders it is more obvious what he represents on a substantial level. He has been loud and clear for many years.

So we are all processing the primary season we have just gone though- 17 republican candidates later- 3 Democratic candidates later.

We can sit back and wait for the party conventions, which occur in July- after Mars goes direct.

And for all of us July is the time of getting our life automobiles started up again for a drive into the new era of our lives.

This does not mean that personal and global events will stop until July.  The personal events over the next couple months, while the retrogrades continue, will help us to further release old mental tapes, old traumas and hurts, old patterns of Self denial and co-dependency.

The events that happen over the next couple of months will also help us to see more clearly our new era of life, to help us to embrace or at least accept our new life energies.

Remember that most important is how we are shifting energetically, because our energetic shifting will determine what and who we will attact into our lives.

It is  good time now to stay very present with our selves and our interactions with others. Watch and feel what is shifting inside.  You are changing at a deep cellular level, changing to be aligned with the energies of the Age of Aquarius that we are on the cusp of.

Everything has been accelerated and intensified, so we can do the inner work necessary to change our vibrations and lives.

Transition between worlds is not easy, in fact it can be quite painful at times, especially so when faced with old traumas and wounds. But the new birth can feel so good, so inspiring and heartfelt.

In the global world transition during this current Retrograde period, look for signs and symbols to tell you where things are headed now.

Look closely at Syria and Iraq, North Korea, Israel and Palestine, China and Japan.

Look more closely at the economy and stock market for signs and symbols of change.

It is the military/economic complex that hold up our old world.  There will be bigger and bigger cracks in its structure if we are to experience the kind of transformation necessary to bring the birth of the Age of Aquarius.

So even if some of the world events make you feel very insecure, remember that just like in your personal transformation, there is a need to face old energies and emotions, beliefs, and perceptions that need to be released.

The transitions can be painful and scary at times, but necessary in the process of positive Transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

Til next week,

Leo
