Raising the Intensity Temperature and Astrology Forecast November 19-25.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on November 18, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The weekend that begins this forecast is rather powerful as there is a New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th and Mars squares Pluto on the 19th. That is a lot of power that needs to be expressed and released.

It is a volatile time now, with our needing to do some deep soul work,  which sometimes is rather difficult and painful. Many are now having their deeper demons coming up to their awareness, so they can purge and heal them.  In that process, a new birth wants to emerge, but only if the old dysfunctional energies and patterns are released sufficiently.

Scorpio is the sign of deep transformational soul work, and this New Moon in Scorpio will initiate a deepening of the soul work, and a stronger desire to live in that New Chapter of your life.

As we have talked about previously Scorpio is a sign of primal power, an energy of deep transformation and core truths. There is no b.s.ing with Scorpio. It is real.  It is passionate.  It is deeply in touch with both death and birth. And Mars square Pluto this week brings even more power of transformation.

Mars is the planet of Aries, and as such is straight forward, direct, and active.   Pluto is the planet of Scorpio and as such is deep and powerful and transformative.  Together Mars and Pluto are explosive and can be rather destructive. Yet it is mainly about destroying, sometimes rather ruthlessly, the old patterns, forms, or relationships that are not meant to come with you in this New Chapter.

To be properly aligned now, stay in touch with your core self and core truth now, your passions, and with your natural empowerment.   Be as discerning as you can between healthy personal empowerment and unhealthy desires to have power over someone or even to have revenge or to hurt someone else.

To feel those emotions may be natural in some circumstances, but to feed those feelings or to act on them cannot be a good thing for you or anyone else.

Stay aware of these energies inside your self, in others or out in the world.  Be aware if you are being triggered to act in an angry confrontational manner.  Really nasty arguments or fights are more likely during this time period.  World events that bring great turmoil are more likely during this lunar cycle than usual.

Hot spots in the world will be more susceptible to outbursts than usual.

Yet for many this will be a most positive new moon and lunar cycle.  You may get in touch with your deepest empowerment and healthy passions that will assist you in self actualization and standing up with your truth.

You may be ready now to take the ride of deep transformation,  to follow your passion or honestly speak out about what you have suppressed in the past.

There are things that are ready to burst forward now in a big way,

Also this week the Sun moves into Sagittarius on Tuesday November 21. And then on Wednesday the 22nd Neptune changes directions from retrograde to Direct.

Neptune is in its favorite sign Pisces, as it changes directions to Direct, showers its natural energy through our psyches.  Neptune seeks to bring us into a flow and in that process have us surrender to the non material plane, the “world behind the world”.

Music, meditation, spiritual practices, nature, and dance bring us into Neptunian realms.  Neptune also rules escapism, and so desires for drugs or alcohol can be stronger when Neptune is around too.

It is best during a few days surrounding this Neptune movement to let go any strict agendas or tight schedules or fast action.  If one gets out of alignment now,  they can feel spacey, forget things, have difficulty remembering, and get generally confused or chaotic.

If you use this time to let go and go with the flow, you will be fine.

The Sun in Sagittarius on the 21sr runs counter to the New Moon in Scorpio.  Pluto the ruler of Scorpio is the Guardian of the Underworld.   Jupiter the ruler of Sagittarius, is a God of the higher Heavens.

So even while you are doing your deep soul work in your deepest emotions, you will be called to raise your vibration, to seek higher meaning, to find your inspiration and get in touch with your needs for upliftment, joy, or adventure.

The Holiday spirit is aligned with the Sun moving into Sagittarius.  But the demons of old family patterns may  arise, which would be aligned with the Scorpio energies.

And of course these family issues come up so you can potentially deal with them in a more constructive and transformative manner.  Leaving old family dramas behind is necessary in the transformational process.  Otherwise our baggage in the New Chapter is too heavy and slows us down or even worse holds us back from healthy growth.

We are also now coming closer to the Winter Solstice, which is about a month from now.  So darker days and darker moods can be difficult for some.

But positive holiday Sagittarius spirit can get strong too, as well as feelings of happiness and joy and hope.  But if we get too attached to the material consumer part of the holiday season, we will be brought down into anxiety and negativity.

Half way through this Scorpio lunar cycle, on December 3,we will get a Full Moon in Gemini as Mercury goes Retrograde.  More on that as we get closer to the date.

Powerful world events will not disappear during the holiday season.  In fact this Scorpio New Moon may trigger pent up emotions to erupt.

But even more likely, early next year during the next Eclipse Season of January through March , world issues will build into much greater intensity.  This will likely bring important events that will motivate us to make changes and transform our consciousness in order to leave behind old programming that keeps us stuck and miserable.

Till next week

Standing Up Strong and Astrology Forecast November 12-18

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 11, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move through the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began on October 19 at the New Moon in Libra.

Last quarter moon phases are times of coming down, releasing, letting go, and gathering ourselves for the next new moon, in this case on Saturday November 18 at 6:42 AM EST.

As the Moon wanes, it slowly loses its light as it comes closer and closer to that new moon in darkness.

Along with the days getting darker and colder, the mood may get darker too this week.  Staying aware of that fact can help not letting oneself to be engulfed by fear or gloominess. Feel your natural feelings, but do not allow them to dominate you.

Add also the fact that the Sun is continuing in Scorpio, and so it is natural now to feel the yin side of life, to know what is real, to feel more deeply, to appreciate the hurt people go through sometimes.

So much has changed over the last year. We are in a new reality since the presidential election last year. And much has also shifted since Eclipse Season, which was highlighted by the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo in August.

You can use this last quarter lunar cycle to get your bearings, to ground and center yourself, to allow yourself to feel whatever your feelings are naturally feeling, as long as you do not drown in them.

How has your own life changed over the last year? Have you experienced much change and transformation since then?  What more changes do you anticipate?  Do you need to speak up about something, as so many are doing now in the world.

And this need will only grow at and after the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18.

While we watch the Trump dramas and the volatility of world relations now, sometimes teetering on dangerous; we are also experiencing great transformation beyond old toxic ways.

Power abusers and sexual predators are being called out as we are all being made aware how prevalent such abuse has been and is still. And now the world will change as a result of the increased awareness and stigma of being an abuser.

We are becoming more and more able to change this world into one more aligned with the higher values of the Age of Aquarius.

And part of that change is knowing that No one is inherently better than anyone else, and deserving more privilege and selfish gain.

Age of Aquarius is about equality and diversity within unity. There is no royalty, no superior/inferior,  no privilege for being born in a certain family or culture.

And no has the right, no matter what position in life they hold, to abuse their power in order to take from others what they do not want to willingly give.

This challenging the power order and hierarchy will continue and will get more intense.

Much of the volatility in our world will soon become explosions that will eventually clear the air of arrogance, and domination over others.

In the game created in the old paradigm, there are some who have privilege and power and deserve more.  In the old paradigm in America, celebrity and wealth and privilege make one better, with more power and deserving of more than others.

Only in that kind of paradigm can someone like Trump become president. Only in that kind of paradigm can slavery and sex trafficking be reality.

Trump and people like Cosby, Weinstein, and Spacey are given this power and privilege in the old paradigm.  And they are all now staring us in our faces because the Universe is showing us in stark terms the kind of world we are in, and one we need to change.

And some of you are thinking that this is the way it has always been and will always be.  And I tell you I know a place, a dimension, a reality where that does not exist.

And that dimension with its energy and consciousness is wanting to materialize in the Age of Aquarius.

Its light is trying to pour into our consciousness, which is why each of us is challenged to break down the blockages and release old traumas and programming so this light can come in without impediment.

And we are sitting in a time when it feels painful when we are controlled more by the old world, and lighter as we awaken and heal within the new world.

And we will naturally go back and forth until we arrive on the other side of the bridge of transformation.

It is like the breakup of an old dysfunctional relationship.  There is fear of loss, deep sense of insecurity, guilt, blame,  anger, and concern that no better relationship will ever come to such a failure.  That is the pull of your old world.

But there is also a sense of hope for a better life,  a sense of liberation, and an opening of one’s heart again.

And that new life, truly a new life, is only possible if old belief systems, old programming, and old mental tapes are released and transformed at a deep level so new light, love, and truth can pour in. And with it healthier relationships.

Often times however, the process is ugly at first, explosive and filled with rage and fear.

But that is necessary sometimes as discomfort, chaos, and unsettled emotions push us to awaken to the truth and make the changes necessary.

And the system of our old Establishment will continue to be challenged more and more by world events and human rebellion.  And as it breaks down, we each need to release old beliefs and security systems in our minds in order to transform our lives and transform the culture and world into the new Paradigm and Age.

This week experience the darkening Moon and mood, then get ready for a powerful New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th. Then on the 19th Mars will make an explosive square to Pluto.

This is a turning point time period, a time to stoke up again the powers of deep transformation.

Let your self be more empowered and speak your truth.   No one can put themselves up as better than you, and tell you what to be or do.

But you enable them if you do not speak up or tell someone who can help, as silence tells abusers or bully people that they can continue their dominance and abuse.

In time the whole idea of perpetrator and victim, predator and prey within the human condition will be diminished and greatly released.  You are not a predator or victim, not a predator or prey, and that old way of believing enables bullies and sexual predators to continue to exist.

Without a victim there is no perpetrator.  So identifying with being a victim keeps you locked up and chained in an old reality.

Yes you may have been victimized but you are not a victim.

Till next week,

Leo

Open the Gates of Change and Astrology Forecast February 19-25

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on February 18, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now in Pisces time of year, as the Sun moved into Pisces early morning on the 18th of February.

That means there is only one month left of Winter in the northern hemisphere of planet Earth.  Spring Equinox is on March 20.

So this week, starting on February 18, the Sun is in the last month of Winter while in Pisces.

At the same time this week, starting also on February 18,  we are entering the last quarter Moon phase before the New Moon Solar Eclipse on February 26.

So this week is a week of remembering and letting go of parts of the past.  We can go deeper inside ourselves and process what has been happening lately, and also what has happened in our more distant past.

Pisces is very sensitive and inner directed, and feels more comfortable in dreamy, poetic, and music based consciousness.

There is a desire to leave the conventional, accepted, and more harsh rules of living.  Pisces sees what can be a better world, and finds it sometimes difficult to be in “reality”.

So Pisces can be escapist and seek to avoid situations it is not comfortable in.

So you can use this week, if you can arrange it, to have plenty of time to go inward and to feel deeper realities.

If you cannot because of responsibilities in the “real” world, then find some time for meditation, music, art, spirituality, psychology, being aware of your dreams,  movies that have feelings and emotions, and time with others who are sensitive and deep.

When Spring comes it will then be time to take more direct action.

Most importantly this week however, is the fact that we are in between eclipses and preparing for the stronger of the 2 eclipses:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

The first eclipse was on February 10 in Aquarius/Leo.  It was a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon.

Many people have since been shaken out of status quo thinking, and experienced breakdowns and/or breakthroughs of their lives or consciousness.  Change is certainly in the air.

That theme of transformational change continues as we move toward the Solar Eclipse and further into Eclipse Season.

If you were born in late February Pisces especially, you will be affected by this Solar Eclipse.  Those also born in late May Gemini, late August Virgo, or late November Sagittarius will also be more greatly affected.

I cannot state it strongly enough that we as a human family are in the middle of such great change and transformation.

It is not because Donald Trump became president.  It is the opposite:  Donald Trump is the president because of all the change that this world is ready for and needs

What his presidency represents is shaking up and waking up the whole world.   The potential for deep transformational change is greater than it has been in many, many years.

The Universe with its planetary alignments is creating the circumstances and events necessary for the change we are and will be going through.

This summer the changes will be even bigger as we experience in August two eclipses, including a most important Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo that will be the first Total Solar Eclipse to travel over the whole of the United States since 1918.

The way is opening up now, during these current eclipses, for the light of even greater change to pour through this Summer.

But now as we get ready to experience the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces next Sunday the 26th of February, we need to spend more time and energy being awake and present for the new light and love that is wanting to stream through our consciousness and lives.

Concentrate not so much on Donald Trump and how much you love or hate him.   His narcissism thrives on such attention.

Concentrate more on letting go of old stories and mental programs that have controlled your life.

You now have opportunity to release dysfunctional patterns of behavior and relating more than ever before.

Truth is wanting to shine through along with love, and that truth will assist you in your healing and transformational process.

There is ample evidence, for instance, that extraterrestrial visitations have been covered up by governments and former presidents.

There is so much we have been programmed to believe or not believe by our parents, schools, religions, and governments.

When you are ready to know the truth, the truth will be brought to you if you are awake and open-minded.

That does not mean it is right to accept all the crazy conspiracy theories that are out there.  Instead we each need to trust our own inner sources to find what is real and true.

As we let in more truth, love has a greater chance of being real and not just wishful dream-world romaniticizing.

As we let in more love, truth has a greater chance to be hopeful and optimistic, not cynical and hopeless.

Love and Truth together move mountains and allow us to have a healthier life and world.

As we move through this Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces, expect the flow of watery feelings and insights to be really powerful and in some cases overwhelming.

Pisces is a soul oriented sign, and as such gets us to experience that which is deeper than our chattering and unfeeling minds.

Our true self is known more clearly from our hearts and souls than our minds.  The mind that is not connected to our hearts and souls is the breeding ground for a controlling ego.

Since Pisces is a mutable water sign, we can best navigate this Solar Eclipse by being flexible and open to change.

That does not mean one should totally surrender one’s control and stability, but it does mean one may get shaken up out of stuck and rigid places in one’s mind or life.

The energy of the eclipse will get more intense leading up to the eclipse, which happens on February 26 at 9:58 AM EST.

On the same day Mars will conjunct Uranus in Aries, which will give us events and/or mind frames that will break outside of old boxes and liberate us from that which has kept us stuck.

That Mars which is conjunct Uranus on the 26th is square to Guardian of the Underworld Pluto on the 22nd.

So the Uranus/Pluto square is triggered again, as well as the Cardinal T-square, which includes Jupiter in Libra in the mix.

All in All, it is time to let go of the old chapter in your life in a much bigger way, and to let in a new and more powerful chapter in your life and in the life of the country and world.

Much of what is breaking down from the past may not feel good, but when a storm comes through a town it does not only break down what is not wanted. “You can’t always get what you want”. But you get what you need.

The way needs to be cleared for new energies, for a new paradigm, for a New Age. And that is what is happening.

Till next week,

Leo

Renewed Clarity Moving Forward and Astrology Forecast September 25- October 7

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Mercury is Direct again as we settle down into the beginning of Autumn 2016.   Be present now for how your thinking and feelings have been shifting.

The fog is lifting.  As it lifts, the Libra frequencies of Autumn bring consciousness to greater awareness of others, more empathy and sensitivity to what others are experiencing.

No matter how much we may try to deny it, relationships have such a great influence on how we feel about ourselves and life.

We may try to shut others out, but unless we live alone and never go outside our home, we will encounter and be influenced by others.

Too bad early education does not have classes on how to be in relationships, or how to be a parent, or how to be in a healthy marriage, etc.

We have developed so much on the material plane, travelled to the Moon, created amazing technology, created flying machines, cures for deadly diseases, and mass communication.

But we do not really know how to get along with one another, how to respect others’ lifestyles and religions and cultures and sexual orientations.

In America now there is a very angry culture war going on that is represented by the Presidential election.

Trump supporters are passionate about the more conservative values he represents for  them, and they demonize Clinton and her supporters.   Clinton supporters are passionate about the more liberal values she represents for them and they demonize Trump and his supporters. There is little attempt on either side to truly empathize with the other side.

“We are different yet we respect each other’s view” is rarely heard these days..

On one level there is a splitting that is happening at a very core level .  But at the same time there is a stong force of Unification growing in each one of us.

We are in the bigger picture- long term- moving toward knowing we are all different, a truly diverse human family, but all One.

And you cannot truly believe in diversity, BTW, if you do not see conservative southerners  as part of that diversity- or you cannot see Muslims or North Koreans as part of that diversity, for instance.

Look at the sky and see the perfectly round Moon and Sun.   Pick up a Yin/Yang symbol and see dark and light joined in circular oneness.  See an astrological circular mandala and view all the signs, planets, and houses joined together as one.

How and why have we split apart so drastically? Our split is why we have those so rich and those so desperately poor; why we have perpetrators and victims; why we demonize those we do not agree with.

I believe in the greater world we are now in for an even greater splitting apart before we can come together as one in an Age of Aquarius.

It is almost impossible to talk rationally with many people now about the Election.  There is so much hatred coming from so many people.

It is best for those who want to be a part of the new world to get outside the box of the duality in more ways than one.

If you want to have new world consciousness you are wanting to see life as like a Yin/Yang symbol, dark and light, male and female, yin and yang different but together in Oneness.

You cannot change what is coming to us except to get your consciousness vibrating at the frequency of Diversity in Unity, with love and truth at the core of your soul.

This week, as we begin our Autumn journey, with Mercury Direct and the Eclipses in our rear view mirrors, we will experience Pluto changing directions and a New Moon in Libra.

On Monday September 26, Pluto the ruler of Scorpio and the mythical Guardian of the Underworld will go from Retrograde to Direct.

Pluto is a transformational planet that is quite intense and potentially explosive.  As it moves from Retrograde to Direct, its intense energy permeates our collective and individual souls.

It is meaningful that the first Presidential debate is happening as Pluto goes direct.

Expect a most powerful debate, one that will somehow transform the conflict between Clinton and Trump and the people who follow them.

In your personal life you may well experience an increase of passion and intensity in the days surrounding Pluto’s shift.

You may also have arguments or inner conflicts that bring you a transformation of a relationship or of your own beliefs or consciousness.

Other powerful world events may be showing themselves in the days surrounding Pluto’s shift.

On Friday September 30 there will be a New Moon in Libra at 8:11 PM. Jupiter will be conjunct the New Moon while Mars and Pluto square it in Capricorn.

There will be a lot of energy in this lunation, one that will involve relationship in one form or another.

Libra, being relationship oriented, seeks the bringing of people together to relate with one another.  Jupiter conjunct this New Moon serves to inspire such a connection.  But Mars and Pluto in Capricorn may put a damper on such a union with doses of practical reality

This New Moon in Libra also brings more beauty to our lives, like the soon to fall leaves of multi colors.

Be aware now of what is fair and just and what constitutes a win/win for both parties.  Libra wants grace and peace, harmony and ease.

Some conflicts in the world now will seek peaceful resolution.    It may signify a temporary break in the conflict or perhaps even a more permanent settlement.

This New Moon in Libra moves us forward out of Eclipse Season.

I will miss the Forecast for next Saturday the 1st of October, but will resume again on Saturday October 8. I will be visiting the Southwest in Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado.

The week I will be absent is a mild week astrologially.

However from Wednesday the 5th through Friday the 7th there are some minor planetary rumblings.

Mars will square both Jupiter and Pluto while Venus sextiles Pluto.  These aspects should amp up the energy field and tempt people to be more impulsive.

Counteracting that impulsiveness and volatility is Mercury leaving Virgo to enter Libra for around a month. This transition happens on Friday October 7

Mercury in Libra is mentally very balanced and peaceful and a mediator and diplomat in disagreements.

Till we meet again on October 8.

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

Cracking Open the Portal and Astrology Forecast March 1- 14.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 28, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Planetary movements in March and April signify the opening of a major portal into the Age of Aquarius.   Last year at this time, as we approached the Cardinal Grand Cross in April 2014, another major portal was beginning to open.

As these portals open, the energetic atmosphere intensifies.    New frequencies of light, love, and truth are wanting to enter collective and individual consciousness, in order to help us evolve in alignment with the soul intentions for the Age of Aquarius.

Of course there are blocks in the way of receiving this love and truth- blocks from old conditioning; blocks from attachments to familiar ways that feel safe and secure; blocks from old traumas and wounds; blocks from a resistance to letting go of our ego’s need to control; blocks from attitudes and beliefs ingrained in our minds and hearts from the old paradigm.

Just as with individuals, these blocks fight against the influx of these new energies and hence can cause dis-ease,  conflict, upheaval, and challenges to the potential gracefulness of the process.

So it is best as this portal opens to stay present and aware, to look at your self and life from a more detached perspective, with spiritual lens and deeper soul connection.

Meditation; being in nature; spiritual practices; being aware of the Universe’s signs, symbols and synchronicities; and just generally staying aware beyond our more mundane agendas are ways to stay connected as energies intensify and world events gain in importance.

This coming week March 1-7 may bring some early winds of change prior to the coming storms of change as Venus in Aries triggers the Uranus/Pluto square; but I believe the real intensity of these winds will not be felt by most until the week of March 8-14.  That is when Mars triggers the Uranus/Pluto square just days before the actual exact square on March 16.

That will be followed by a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on the day of the Spring Equinox on March 20 and then by a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra on April 4.

That will be followed by Jupiter going Direct on April 8; and then by the spark of the ignition turning for more outer directed changes on April 18.

Deep transformational movement as the portal opens will mainly occur between March 8 and April 18.

Then what results from all this transformation will be sparked after April 18.

I not be writing on my usual day next week Saturday March 7.   I will be celebrating my March 6 birthday while on vacation in the the Southwest USA.

Therefore my next post after this one will be on March 14.  And I am scheduled to create a new YouTube video for this great portal opening on March 12, to be posted on March 14 also.

This coming week March 1-7 has some spark to it from a Jupiter/Uranus trine on Tuesday March 3 and with Venus in Aries triggering the Uranus/Pluto square on March 4.

The Jupiter/Uranus trine also triggers the Uranus/Pluto square and it will tend to bring enlightenment and inspiration.  It should bring issues in the world that help us to see from a broader perspective, outside the usual mental boxes

Netanyahu, the leader of Israel, will be speaking to the American Congress on or around the 3rd, and that talk will break open into collective awareness the issues that are so important to resolving the nuclear issue with Iran.

Netanyahu went behind President Obama’s back to set up this meeting, outside normal protocol.

President Obama is trying to find a peaceful resolution in regards to Iran, a resolution that to his way of thinking would make the Middle Easy safer and maybe ultimately set up a foundation for settling the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and the ISIS threats.

Prime Minister Netanyahu does not believe Iran is sincere in its efforts to stop its supposed path to a nuclear bomb and instead wants more pressure put on Iran including the threat of war.

This is a most important world issue in the transition into an Age of Aquarius.   Some of the first seeds for world civilization and major world religions were planted in the Middle East.

What happens there during these several years of transition is most important.

And as this portal opens up this late winter and spring, what happens with Iran and Israel will greatly determine the amount of pain our human family will suffer as the wheel turns into a new age.

Of course other early civilizations and religions were in China and India.  And what happens in those parts of the world now will also greatly influence the portal opening now and the transition into a new age.

India and China and surrounding regions are having growing pains and there are old resentments there between those two countries and other countries in Asia.  North Korea holds a special key to the potential for a world of Diversity in Unity, as right now it is so isolated from the rest of the world, even as it hold nuclear weapons.

We are at a huge turning point as this major portal opens.  We are each important in how the tide turns, as we work with our deeper consciousness in transformation and evolution.

As we each evolve, so does our collective consciousness.

So Jupiter trine Uranus this coming week will help us to wake up and see greater truths.

Venus in Aries sparking the Uranus/Pluto square will bring shifts in our relationships, so we can better navigate the changes.

Who is in your heart now?   What are they bringing to your life?  Who is not in your heart now as you are growing and changing?  And what does that mean? Do you need to let them go or at least change the form of your relationship?  Of do you need to go through some relational and emotional work with them, so to bring back that connection?

The week of March 8-14 should bring much more intense winds of change, personal and global issues and events that wake us up even further to what is happening and where things are going.

This week will bring the forces that shake any fences of indecision we may still be sitting on.

Mars is forceful and focused, intent on moving things forward, in taking on any challenges with courage and integrity of self.  Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday that week should be the most intense and filled with events that open up issues and tend to make us act not just talk or ruminate.

And on Saturday the 14th of March Saturn changes direction from Direct to Retrograde.  In so doing, in the days surrounding this Saturn slowdown and shift, its energy and intent will be experienced.

Saturn is contracting energy, limiting possibilities, sometimes to the point of knowing fated events or at least a sense of “it is what it is”, nothing I can do about it except accept and make the best of it.

This Saturn turning point will bring us into the spell of Spring Eclipse Season 2015.  The last of seven exact Uranus/Pluto squares happens on the 16th, followed by the Solar Eclipse on Spring Equinox the 20th of March, then the Aries/Libra Lunar Eclipse on April 4.

World events including events that will be affecting the world economy and including natural Earthly and weather events will be more likely at this portal opening.

Those of you who have been bored, wanting more movement and change will be pleased for sure.

Talk with you again on March 14
