Autumn Equinox and Astrology Forecast September 16-22.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

2018 Summer Eclipse Season has ended, and late this week Summer itself will end.

As the curtain comes down on the summer of 2018, we find ourselves in a personal New Chapter of our lives.  

That New Chapter is much more than the ending and beginning of nature’s seasons.

It is truly about entering a new and important era of our personal lives.

And it is truly about entering a new and important era of our collective life, both our global and American lives.

Most important in this new era is that this new era has at its core  the values you believe in.

Then after you have put your heart values and mental principles as your guiding light in this New Chapter, you have automatically built the foundation for the New Chapter you are entering and building.

Have you totally accepted this new era of your life?  Do you recognize you are truly in a new era or chapter of your life?

I know everything is feeling different inside for many.  The usual connections inside each of us are shifting.  The old normal inside us is gone.

And of course our personal lives are the micro to the macro of our greater world and Universe.

And as the wheels of the Universe turn into new territory, so too are we personally turning into new territory.

And as the societies of America and the world change, as they are beginning to do rather drastically, each of our souls is also being called to make deep transformational change.

It is obvious that the United States is slowly leaving its soul, and forgetting about the lofty principles it was founded on.

So deep transformation into an Age of Aquarius requires each of us individually and all of us collectively to make sure we are living by these standards.

Our “better angels” can guide us forward through this new terrain now.

Our American lives are so in the middle of deep transformation.  And the culture wars in the United States are bringing out the worst in people, on both sides.

People will lie and cheat to make sure their chosen agenda will win. To them the end justifies the means.  Do you believe that?

Hitler believed that exterminating those who did not fit his paradigm for how the new human should be and look like was OK to do.

“Kill or be killed” is how our politicians  are thinking and acting now.  The bloody fight, over who the next Supreme Court Justice will be,  is way over the top.

We need to return to our deeper values and deeper sense of what is right and wrong now.

The picture is much bigger and deeper then judges or political parties or religions.

Yes we need to stand up for what we believe, but we do not need to demonize and crush those who believe differently.  Trust me, those people you are demonizing also demonize you.  That alone should tell us something important. They believe what you stand for is evil and wrong, as you believe about them and their values.

We are on the verge of total war between American cultures, and total war between countries too.  And demonizing is what governments tend to do before attacking. It was Saddam Hussein, then Gadafi,  then Kim Jong Un, and now Bashar Assad president of Syria. And it will keep going after others whose countries we want to bring into our vision of how a country or culture or person should be.

This is how religions often act too. Each one believes it has found “The Way”. and their god is the true god.

Respecting each other’s differences is so Age of Aquarius, and that attitude shows the best of being Aquarius.

Now Trump is on the verge of real action from people who want to get rid of him as president.

And of course he is not a great example of being American, human, or a man.

Nevertheless, our very deep problems in America will not be eliminated if Trump leaves office. The Pence administration might make the culture wars exacerbate even more.

Trump’s presence has brought these culture wars for the soul of America come out in the light for all to see.

But the war will still be alive until we the people realize that all these people, no matter what agenda they carry, are Americans, and even more importantly Humans.

The Middle East is really on the edge of great conflict now, so let us hope leaders will pull back from that edge.

This week we are in the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle that began at the Virgo New Moon on September 9.  So energies are waxing in the lunar cycle, allowing us to feel we are moving forward in its regard.

But the solar cycle is about to show us an important turning point in the year, a turning point that points us to more yin or dark energies.

That solar cycle take us to the Autumn Equinox, which begins the time of Sun in Libra.

Autumn Equinox is on Saturday September 22 at 9:54 PM EDT.

Light and dark, yin and yang, male and female are equal at the Autumn Equinox.  Yet right after that moment, darker, more yin and female energies begin to expand their presence.

Metaphorically Autumn Equinox is like a sunset time of day,  in between light and dark.

The Sun’s yearly voyage through Libra begins at the Autumn Equinox also.

Most aptly with the Autumn Equinox, Libra is the scales of balance, scales of justice too.

Libra is most drawn to relationship, the “best” ways of being social or being in a society.

It seeks all to be lovely and fair, and it can be a great mediator or diplomat.

Is is usually very accommodating of others, sometimes to a fault as it often loses its Self in the process.

Libra really cares about things being fair or just, and about issues working for everyone, not just one person.  Libra is quite able to make everything symmetrical and color coordinated and pretty too. It likes things to be pleasant and peaceful.

So as this coming week comes to an end at the Autumn Equinox, it is a time to begin to shift away from more self centered attitudes and ways of being.

Instead it is time to listen better to others, to think of social values, to be more peaceful and ready to negotiate or compromise.

Perhaps out in the world, in America, in the Middle East, and elsewhere, there will be attempts to work harder to make peace and harmony between people.

There could be some surprises or shocks coming early to mid week, as Mars in Aquarius squares Uranus late Tuesday.

That is meant to be some kind of wake up call that shows how to think and move “outside the box”.  That wake up call may tend to show new ways to solve old problems.

Mars/Uranus contacts also can show rebellious behavior, and radical action.  World events that shake things up and get us thinking differently than we are used to are more likely than usual.

Till next week

Leo

Navigating Eclipses and Retrogrades and Astrology Forecast July 29- August 5

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 28, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we passed through the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon last week, we entered the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12.

This has been for many people a very difficult last few weeks.  Besides the two eclipses, we have also experienced Mars and Mercury both going Retrograde.

This is a time of inner reflection, of dealing with inner demons and old patterns and stories that are needing to be addressed, resolved, and/or released.

It has been, and continues to be, a ripe time to revisit these old stories, and in the process to find breakthroughs to new ways of seeing those old patterns or stories.

And those breakthroughs can show us to positive transformation for the betterment of our souls and lives.

Nevertheless, being brought back to old stories can seduce us into making decisions or moves that are not appropriate to the current situation.

It is best, in most cases, to hold back from making big decisions or starting new ventures.  It is not the time to act, but instead a time to internally work through the issues.

Many have, through the intensity of these eclipses, experienced these big breakthroughs; but it is more than just eclipses in themselves that have been triggering these transformational times.

The strength of Pluto and Uranus within the last two eclipse formations has provided more power of transformation and awakenings.

So even through the intense difficulties many have experienced these last few week,  in the bigger picture it is all part of deep transformation and change necessary for our growth and evolution.

The Age of Aquarius is calling us all to transform our consciousness, beliefs, and ways in order to be aligned with this New Age.

The only “enemy” in this process is our fear. It is natural to have fear, but it is not good to give in to fear as our master.

Fear takes many forms, but at the core fear takes over when we no longer trust we live in a meaningful Universe that brings us situations that here for a reason.

Do we ultimately follow Love and Truth or Fear?

It is true that even the most spiritual of us have dark nights of the soul when we feel “spirit” has abandoned us or we have abandoned “spirit”.

But in time we have awakenings or “rebirths” that bring us back on our spiritual paths.

It is so easy now to fall victim to fear, as our world seems to be falling apart from our better values.

This falling apart, which will get more intense, is part of the process of transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

I know many of you have experienced a falling apart of your personal lives before, and know that was just part of the process of transformation into a life more aligned with who you really are and are growing into.

And our world and country are going through that now. The big split between cultures in America, which resembles the Civil War in essence, is part of this transformational process that will ultimately make us more whole in alignment with a New Age.

And ending the notion of being superior to other cultures or countries is part of that transformation, as there is no room for superpower countries in the Age of Aquarius..

Empires began at the beginning of the Age of Pisces, in the form of the Roman Empire.  Now for the Age of Aquarius, we are letting go of the world controlling Empires.

Diversity within Unity requires the world to transform into one of more equality between nations and cultures.

The USA Empire of its Military/Economic Complex is dissolving and will hopefully in the process come back to its better values and principles.

And it is thus easy to see how the Trump influence is actually helping the process of the Empire’s downfall. Yes there will still be mammoth attempts to keep the power going, and some of that will likely be quite oppressive to our liberties.

And during this process of American transformation, the impeachment of President Trump is intensifying and becoming more serious.  What Trump does to distract this process is of great concern.

But keep the faith that in the bigger picture all is aligned with the cycles of the Universe..

In the greater world the Middle East is on the verge of igniting into greater conflict.  Gaza was erupting last week, Syria was intensifying, and Iran is now squarely in the cross-hairs of USA and Israel sights.

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius fell right on Israel’s natal Moon in Leo.  Mars was in opposition to that Natal Moon. The signs point to that Lunar Eclipse as an important turning point for Israel.

And transformation of Israel, Palestine and the greater Middle East is important to the transformation of our world into the Age of Aquarius.

Many of the first known civilizations and world wide religions were birthed in the Middle East.  So it is understood why that area of the world is needing of transformation out of old paradigms that run much of the world. The way Israel oppresses the Palestinians is so common to the old age.  And of course Israel was often at the other end of these abuses of power.

As we stated earlier, we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12. And Mars and Mercury are still retrograde.

Now we await the third and last eclipse of Summer Eclipse Season 2018:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11.

Though at that time Mercury will still be retrograde until August 18/19 and Mars will still be retrograde until August 27, there still will be much push for new beginnings at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in fiery Leo.

The big dominating egos on the world stage will be emerging.  Matches will tend to be lit by them, creating world conflict.

In our personal lives however, it is more likely that this Leo Solar Eclipse will ignite creative passions and open hearts.

It will signify a time of new starts and action taken in this New Chapter of your life.

Of course the actual actions may wait in many instances until Mercury and Mars have settled into their Direct positions.

So there is still much time now to go within your psyche and soul, to find out what you really want (Mars) and what you really think (Mercury).

And that Mars in Retrograde will be triggered this week as it squares Uranus, which is slowing down to go Direct next week.  That means there may be a turning point in your quest to know what you want and where you want to go.  But do your best not to run with it, as Mars will still be Retrograde.

Keep in mind during all the intensity and sometime confusion this Eclipse Season, that your soul is searching for its heart’s desires and your mind’s right thinking to help lead the way forward for your life.

That is being worked out now, sometimes unbeknownst to you at a deep level.  But  know that it is and patiently wait till those planets go Direct and the Eclipse Season ends.

After that much will settle in, and you will be in a better position to know what you truly want ( aligned with your higher self) and where you are going.

Till next week,

Leo

Superior/Inferior Disillusion, and Astrology Forecast May 20-26.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on May 19, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This past week gave us the Taurus New Moon combined with a strong lineup of Uranus aspects.

It is time to move further forward in a more Taurus practical and solid manner; but we have also just had some wake-up calls that are meant to push us out of limitations, stuck-ness, and the slumber of status quo.

Last week North Korea showed signs it would not just comply with USA demands, on the way to a planned summit in June.  Last week we let you know that the date picked for that summit is a date when the USA militant natal Mars will be triggered.  It did not make sense last week, but after the North Korean complaints it does now.

Also last week just after the Mars/Uranus square there was another mass murder at a school, the 22nd such event this year 2018.

And not long after, there was a royal wedding in Great Britain.  Do you see the connection?

On one side of the same coin, the fantasy wedding that separates privileged “special” people from the rest of humanity was performed.

On the other side of the coin, the dark shadow side, a young man who was supposedly often bullied, goes on a murderous rampage.

Each side of the coin creates the equally distorted other side of the coin. Brutality motivates people to escape into fantasies of a perfect life.

And the separation caused by superiors pushing down others into inferior lives, creates a dark side of people who feel they are “less than”.

High School has always been a time when some kids are made to feel popular and “better than” , while others are often humiliated and made to feel inferior.

So it is time for all of us to realize no one, or no group of people is intrinsically any better or worse in the eyes of the Universe than anyone else.

This desire to be superior to others causes all sorts of separation and conflict in the world. My religion is superior to yours.  My country is superior to yours (Make America Great Again). My race or gender or sexual orientation is superior to yours.  The money and privilege I have makes me superior to you.  My family is better than yours.  I am better than you.

This human ego story is quite arguably at the root of so much suffering in this world, so many wars, so much poverty.

The Age of Aquarius is about equality and Diversity within Unity, and that is the antidote to all this separation caused by  the paradigm of superior and inferior.

And this last week was meant to wake us up to the need to change the stories that are causing our decay and destruction.

But this decay and destruction is not the end of the world, yet it is meant to be the end of the world as we have known it.

And each of us in our individual lives is also going through this ending of an Old Chapter of our lives, so we can be born into a new more evolved Chapter.

I see this in couples I work with who can no longer continue the relationship the same way it has always been.  I see this in people who no longer can live their lives without a renewed sense of purpose. I see this in people who are experiencing a very “dark night of the soul”, not knowing if there is a new Chapter waiting for them after the death of the old one.

I see this in people who are in such despair when looking at the condition of our current world, not believing something better is on the way.

Our personal lives and our collective life is in transition between worlds and ages, and that transformational process has now taken us to the edge, to the place of reckoning.

We need to let die what is ready to die, and often that is a part of us that carries old stories, old beliefs, and an old paradigm for how to live as a human on this Earth.

As we are awakened more and more, we see more clearly how we have been programmed to believe what we are “supposed to believe”.

And that awakened knowledge can be very disconcerting at first, and can have effect on all of our life, our relationships, jobs, families, spiritual perspectives, politics, and how we raise our children.

Then after we are awakened, we often look back and judge ourselves and how we have treated others. That judgmental attitude can be very debilitating and counterproductive.

We can only know what is best to do after we have been awakened, and then we need to develop an attitude of learning from our mistakes, not beating ourselves up for not being perfect.

There are more and more of us being awakened every day, and we need to help each other to stay on this new course.  And as our consciousness expands, the Universe helps us by showing us more synchronicities and more and more evidence that all is connected.

This week

And now as we have entered a Taurus lunar cycle since the Taurus New Moon last week, you can make more solid and permanent, your chosen life path. You can now build stronger boundaries to keep protected the sovereign being you are becoming.

You do not need to give yourself away or to become what others want you to be. You do not need to fix anyone else, or to be sure you are doing your life as you “are supposed to”.

You can now more firmly stay on your path with integrity.

On Sunday the 20th the Sun begins its annual dance into Gemini for the next month. Time to shift energy more up to the crown chakra, and to get more into intellectual movements, into wanting to learn more, communicate better, and be more social.

On the 25th Jupiter in Scorpio makes trine to Neptune in Pisces, opening you more to the mystery of life, more to surrendering to a bigger picture.

On the 26th Venus opposes Saturn, bringing us to more focus on relationship and a stronger sense of either relationship endings or commitments.

Next week is the Full Moon in Sagittarius, but for this week we are in the growth pattern of the waxing half of the lunar cycle.

Till next week

Leo

Wake Up Time and Astrology Forecast May 13-19

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 12, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Much is shifting this week

We jump out of the last quarter phase of the Moon on Tuesday May 15.   That is because a new lunar cycle begins with the New Moon in Taurus that day. It is at 7:48 AM EDT.

Before that new moon and after it, there are more energetic shifts.

Before the New Moon in Taurus on the 15th, Mercury conjuncts Uranus while it squares Uranus on Saturday the 12th and Sunday the 13th.

That signifies a wake-up call to move out of stuck places, and it may happen in unexpected or even seemingly irrational ways.

One can be liberated now from old patterns, beliefs, or habits.   Go with that wake-up even if it feels uncomfortable or unfamiliar.

This waking up and breaking out energy continues much of the week as Mars squares Uranus on the 16th.

If you have any mental or emotional cobwebs that have stayed in slumber even though Winter has long passed, this week should help sweep them away.

There should be no more reason to put off, or rationalize away, or be distracted from what is real and true for you.

You are being taken out of the old mental boxes of limited and limiting options, in order to see more clearly.

Often old patterns or ego stories keep us locked up in the stuck ruts of the past.

You are in a New Chapter now, and you will be better served with less emotional or mental baggage to carry with you.

You can use this week to shed some of that baggage, as you no longer need to continue Groundhog Day over and over again.

Liberation begins with waking up from old ways.  People are always telling me they wish they would have been different when they were younger, doing things differently.

But life does not work that way.  We wake up when it is time, and of course planetary movements let us know when it is time.

Uranus is the wake-up planet, and when it is strong in the collective as it is this week, or strong by transit to one’s personal natal chart; that is when energies of liberation from old ways or beliefs is strongest.

And with the New Moon in Taurus happening along with the Uranus movements,  we can take our next steps forward in our life’s journey.

This New Moon in Taurus coincides with so many important events in the Middle East and more specifically in Israel/Palestine.

Gaza is in much turmoil now; Palestinian Nakba Day is the 15th, symbolizing the 700,000  Palestinians who became homeless in 1948. The Muslim holiday Ramadan begins on the 16th and Israel celebrates the 70th anniversary of it modern birth on the 14th.

And most importantly, Trump has moved forward with his plan to move the USA embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, beginning on Monday the 14th.

It has been in Tel Aviv for many years; so yes it is a Uranus movement of breaking out of how things used to be.  But this is also bringing up much rage in the Palestinian and Muslim communities who see this move as a USA statement of making Jerusalem Israel’s property.  Jerusalem is considered sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims.

Much of the transformation of our Earthly human community out of an Old Age is focused on the Middle East where so many religions and early civilizations were formed.

This is where so much now seems unsolvable, and so it is likely to ignite into a powerful place of transformation, as early as this year.  Many cultures and religions have envisioned an end of the old world and a rising of a new world at the End Times.

And many of those old cultures and religions believe this will be centered in the Middle East.

This coming Summer Eclipse Season has 3 eclipses and they are very connected to the charts of Israel, Iran, and Syria.  Much will be stirring up in those places this summer.

Also happening soon is the summit between USA and North Korea. June 12 this year is the chosen date. It will be in Singapore

That day is one day before the New Moon in Gemini and 2 days before Trump’s birthday.

But most importantly, it is conjunct the USA natal Mars, which can only happen once a year.   Mars is the god of war, so symbolically it does not seem like a good day for such a summit.

But right now it does appear that we are all moving toward peace with this summit, so maybe there is something I am not seeing in the symbols.

Yet historically, triggers to that same degree (21 degrees Gemini) have shown events like the beginning of World War II for America and John Kennedy’s assassination.

The Old Age and its decaying ways are in the process of dying and its death may be painful.

Do not get engulfed in the stories and dramas and fears that will come from the coming events. Be aware of what is happening, but do so as an observer not a participant.

Now we will need more and more to focus on the knowledge that we live in a meaningful Universe, one that is filled with love and truth, and is in transition into an Age of Aquarius.

Where we focus our energy now is important.  We can more ably focus on the love and truth of the Age of Aquarius, as we let go of the old beliefs and patterns that were drummed into us from the programming of our families and culture.

That programming perpetuates the ways of the Old Age and Old Paradigm. It keeps us in patterns that are toxic and dysfunctional, filled with fear and mistrust, enemies and separateness.

The coming storms will clear out the deadwood and create space for our new world’s ways.

As you clear out the old, magic and synchronicity come more alive, your life feels more meaningful and purposeful, and you get more comfortable being authentic and receptive to love.

This week provides us with the Uranus wake-ups and the New Moon in Taurus forward movement.

Those beginnings are potentially quite solid, as is Taurus. Those Taurus movements forward may also be rather slow.  Taurus themes of land, home, money, resources, nature, one’s body and nourishment are likely now.  Enjoy the pleasures of the body and the senses and solidify whatever you have previously envisioned or recently begun.

Uranus is not only in aspect to Mars and Mercury this week. It also makes its entry into Taurus after being in Aries for the last seven years. This year it will temporarily go back into Aries late this year and early in 2019.

Then is March 2019 it moves firmly into Taurus for the next 7 years. The last time Uranus was in Taurus was in 1935- 1942.   Uranus has an approximate 84 year cycle.

Themes from back then will resurface during the next 7 years or so.

So much has been shifting and changing for all of us lately, both collectively and personally.  Yes change can be challenging, yet the more we can dance with it instead of fearing and fighting it, the better off we will be.

Transformation cannot be stopped now, but the great opportunity is for better lives, better relationships, more passion and aliveness, more magic and meaning, more love and connection.

Take the ride.

till next week,

Leo

Gettin’ Ready and Astrology Forecast July 16-22.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 15, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

On Sunday July 16 we enter- for a week- the 4th quarter and last quarter of the lunar cycle. This lunar cycle began at the New Moon in Cancer on June 23.  And it ends next Sunday July 23 at the Leo New Moon.

This passing lunar cycle has been a time of finding nurturance, support, feelings of home, family, and inner wholeness.

At the Leo New Moon on the 23rd of July, there will be a shift.  That Leo New Moon brings in the first winds of Eclipse Season, and will shift our energies into more fiery creative self expression, more action, more hope, and greater motivation to “succeed”.

Yet the 4th quarter time this week, which precedes that Leo New Moon, , the first of two Leo New Moons in a row, will be more energized and active than most 4th quarter time periods.

That is because this 4th quarter begins with the Moon in active willful Aries; then continues with the often chaotic Mars square Uranus this Monday the 17th; Sun squaring Uranus on the 20th while Mars goes into Leo; and the Sun moving into Leo a couple days before the New Moon in Leo.

4th quarter lunar cycles are a time of “coming down”, finishing up, gathering, cleaning up, and getting ready for the new beginnings of a New Moon.

And of course that theme continues for this 4th quarter lunar cycle, but there will also be more energy for that “finishing up” purpose this week.

And of course since this is a getting ready for Eclipse Season, there also should be more stirring up, and the beginnings of seeing what Eclipse Season might be like for each of us.

I know some people get scared about these Eclipse Seasons, but having consciously experienced many of them through the years, I can assure you that usually they are not as bad as many fear.

Yes for sure most of us will be taken out of our usual balance, will be shifting in consciousness and energetically, will release and let go some things, and will be more ready for handling change.

But most will not lose their jobs, relationships, or homes during an Eclipse Season. And they will not be destroyed and die.  And the world will not come to an end.

Yet for sure this Eclipse Season will at least be a turning point time in our individual lives, and of course in our global experience too.

There will likely be an experience of getting over the hump and knowing there is no path to going back to how it used to be.  Our New Chapter in life is becoming our “new normal” and we need to own that.

In our global experience, the Trump factor has been changing our world appreciably, and on the surface it looks pretty bad.  Remember in the bigger picture he is the vehicle for this transformation that our human family needs right now in order to wake up and make the needed changes.

America is in the process of  becoming an equal member of nations, which aligns with the Age of Aquarius.

I am sure most of you wish it would be happening in a way that didn’t make the country an embarrassment in the world, and didn’t put us in such a dangerous position; yet this is how it needs to be right now.

Our country and world have been coasting without awareness through a dysfunctional and toxic human condition for a long time now.  The values of this country have been eroding for many years, but so slowly that many have not been paying attention.

Now more and more people are waking up and seeing, feeling and knowing that our human family is in real trouble.   Deep transformation and healing are urgently needed.

And this Eclipse Season, whatever events it brings to us, will show us how much we need to make big important changes.

Our economy is not equitable and all too often the greedy are the ones most rewarded in this system. Bernie Sanders represented a waking up of the people in the USA to lack of balance and fairness in the economy.

Will the stock market crash happen during or not long after this coming Eclipse Season? Better chance than usual it will.

But if not now, it will happen relatively soon, before summer of 2018 in my estimation.  And Eclipse Seasons, as they represent often drastic change, give us a better chance of something like that happening.

And the Military, the other half of the Economic/Military complex that largely rules this world,  will show change this Eclipse Season, especially so as the USA Mars is triggered by transiting Saturn; Trump and Netanyahu’s Mars’ are triggered by the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo, and Israel’s Mars is also triggered by the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21.

Does this mean there is serious conflict brewing? Probably yes.  It does not, however, necessarily mean actual war will erupt soon.   But it has a greater likelihood being triggered during or soon after the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo than usual.

The Military/Economic complex that President Eisenhower warned us about is more powerful than ever, and it must be transformed somehow in order for us to evolve into what is needed for the coming Age of Aquarius.

We can only pray it happens as gracefully as possible.

Whether gracefully or not, Trump sure shows us more likelihood of its dismantling.  He is like Caligula or Nero as the Roman Empire began to dissolve.

But, nevertheless, each of us needs to put our concentration on transforming our own consciousness and life.

As you let go of the programming from society and family of your mind and heart, you transform and evolve.

As  you awaken to truth, you evolve and transform.

As you trust that you live in a meaningful and sometimes magical Universe you transform and evolve.

As you open to your authentic Self, and to living a more purposeful life, you transform and evolve.

As you realize we are all brothers and sisters of the same human family, you transform and evolve.

As you extricate yourself from believing that being rich and famous is the holy grail, you transform  and evolve.

As you let go the consciousness of superior/inferior, predator/prey and victim/perpetrator for our human condition you transform and evolve.

As you know love is the true healer, you transform and evolve.

As you know we all live in a meaningful Universe, you evolve and transform.

As you realize all is connected, all seeming opposites are meant to be joined in wholeness like the yin/yang symbol,  you transform and evolve.

As you experience that Soul is real and guides our life journey, you transform and evolve.

And now the transformation is accelerated, as during Eclipse Seasons the wheels of the Universe turn with more music, light, love, and magic than usual.

It is the blocks to that light that hold everything back and cause breakdowns and difficulties.

When we  trust and surrender, we better allow our blocks to be cleared, so that the music, light, love and magic can come pouring through.

And next Sunday the 23rd begins the Eclipse Season with the New Moon in Leo.

Talk with you then,

Leo

We will do a video in July for the important August Total Solar Eclipse and Eclipse Season.  We will have a new website up to view in July also.

There is a video now of my recent talk at the Enlightenment Expo that my friend Jonne Trees has recorded:     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D52FYcHTM3U.

The subject is about navigating the planetary changes this year.

Passions of Scorpio and Astrology Forecast October 23-29

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we begin to swim through deeper and darker soul waters- before we will experience an important New Moon next week.

The deeper waters will begin to open up Saturday October 22 at 7:46 PM EDT as the Sun moves into Scorpio.    

On the same day the last quarter Moon in Cancer takes us into finishing up the lunar cycle that began at the Libra New Moon of September 30.

A Libra New Moon is the first new moon of Autumn, and brings us the beauty of a metaphoric sunset.

The first part of Autumn shows us trees with vibrant colors and in many places relatively comfortable weather and temperatures.

Then after the Sun moves into Scorpio we begin to feel more deeply the darker and colder days that lead us into winter.

Scorpio is ruled by the planet Pluto, known mythologically as the guardian of the underworld.

That underworld is sometimes referred to as Hades, a place where we experience more primal passion.  Of course mainstream society and religion have demonized this instinctual place inside each of us.

Libra represents a civil way of relating.   Scorpio takes us into our deeper feelings that are more raw and real.

There is no attempt to refine our expressions with Scorpio, and instead it helps us to express our feelings that are more connected to our deeper truth.

This more primal expression can often cause emotional confrontation with others as we stop holding back what we are really feeling.

Therefore Scorpio can bring up what has been suppressed and even repressed sometimes.

Of course the longer something has been held down, the more powerful is its expression when let loose.

After the Sun goes into Scorpio this year, as the 4th quarter Moon begins, you will tend to go down deeper into your soul.

But the outer expression of the inner turmoil may wait until the Scorpio New Moon.

That Scorpio New Moon is Sunday October 30 at 1:38 PM EDT.

That Scorpio New Moon will soon be followed by Halloween/Samhain and even deeper spiritual realities will then be unearthed.

And not long after that the Election will be held on November 8.

I know it seems as if the worst nastiness has already been spit out; but with Scorpio Sun and especially New Moon in Scorpio on the way, things could get even more ugly.

Please realize that in more healthy people Scorpio represents a compassionate connection to those who suffer, an expression of deeper truth, a wide open third eye chakra, and the transformation process of death and rebirth.

But expressed in a toxic old world filled with toxic people, there is much mean spiritedness, demonizing, and obsession with getting revenge and destroying others.

For most of you this Scorpio time will allow you to express your deeper more instinctual truth and to empower yourself.

It will help you to release stuck emotions and dysfunctional patterns, and to go more deeply through the transformational process.

Perhaps it will get ugly sometimes between people, but that can bring about a catharsis followed by deeper connection between them.

Scorpio time of year can also bring each of us into what inspires our passion, and more deeply into our sexual nature too.

This week there may be a feeling of “coming down” and experiencing deeper truth inside, as we prepare and get ready for an important renewal at the Scorpio New Moon on October 30.

On the 28th/29th Mars will square Uranus, which may give you a “wake-up call” and help you to get out of stuck places and patterns.

In the greater world there could be some real surprise events or previously locked secrets opening up this week.

Soon this very intense and toxic Election season will end.

But then we face a whole new chapter of human life here in the United States, which will affect the whole world.

If Hilary Clinton is elected the system we are used to will continue, though be definitely different from Barack Obama’s government and world.

Scorpio Hilary Clinton will tend to be much more confrontational than Leo President Obama.

Gemini Donald Trump will tend to break down our feelings of well being,  and be much more unpredictable than President Obama.  You never know which Gemini twin will appear.

Either way, in the short term darker days are coming to America.  Nevertheless there is no stopping our transformation out of an old world and paradigm, as we move closer and closer to the Age of Aquarius.

In your own life do not let the world’s negativity affect your consciousness for long, or let it take you off your spiritual path.

If you need to turn off the TV or stop reading the political pages, do it.

Keeping up your meditation, and being with positive and supportive people will help you alot.

Letting go of old patterns of self deprecation or old patterns of self defeat will help.

Letting go of or spending less time with people who invalidate you will help.

Transformation and change have been accelerating over the last couple of years and time seems to be speeding by.

Therefore realize that all your recent challenges or difficulites are meaningful and meant to help you to release that which keeps you stuck and held in old patterns and belief systems.

Everything that has come into your life is preparing you for entering into a life that is more authentically aligned with your True Self; more connected to your deeper soul and its natural spiritual journey; more deeply connected to our sacred Earth and meaningful Universe; more sensitive to the varied ways of life of our human family; more aligned with the deeper Soul Source that connects All; and more awake to the reality that Truth and Love are the twin pillars of strength that govern our Universe.

Till next week,

Leo

Winds of Relationship Change and Astrology Forecast July 26- August 1.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 25, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Tides are shifting now as Venus has just gone Retrograde and Uranus has slowed down to go Retrograde while activated by its square to Mars.

We are being awakened and taken outside any closed boxes we find ourselves locked inside.   This will especially apply to heart and relationship issues.

The way you have been understanding certain relationships may tend to be challenged now.   You may have come to some fixed way of looking at a relationship, but over the next 6 weeks or so there will be pulls and pushes to see it differently.   Perhaps there will be new events that come into your life then that will shift your perception.

But even more likely, as Venus is now Retrograde, you will be reminded of past relationships that will give you a new perspective on this current relationship.

You might be reminded of an old relationship pattern that has come back into this new relationship.   You might be reminded of how bad or unloving or abusive a past relationship was.  Or you might on the contrary remember how much better some past relationship was.

Or even more likely still, you will be more aware of when your heart was truly into someone, or someone else’s heart was really into you.   Are you in love with your current partner?  When if ever were you in love in your life?

In late June/early July this year- Venus, while going direct, was making a most close conjunction with Jupiter, one that at times looked like one huge star or planet, not two. This is because those two shining planets “merged” with one another.  Love was in the air then, and as Venus was also making aspect to Uranus, that love may have awakened you like Sleeping Beauty, taken you by surprise, or merely took you outside your comfort zone.

Now that Venus has gone Retrograde it will have another meeting with Jupiter in Leo: on August 4. This will tend to reawaken your heart again.

Overall Venus Retrograde, which will last until September 6, will give you time to reflect on relationships.  Certainly this includes romantic and committed relationships, but also friendships, family relationships, business ones, etc.

You will likely receive deeper insights on those relationships, a better sense of the condition of the relationship, a stronger idea of what options you have and what patterns need to be healed.

And if necessary, you will understand better if you can save the relationship or if you need to let it go.

It would be quite important during this Retrograde period to feel your heart, to be in touch with what turns it on and makes it sing.  Turn back the clock on your life to remember what or whom your heart was attracted to, what it loved.

Do you feel love is good for you or do you feel it makes you too out of control of your life?  Some people actually will shut out love from their heart, as they have been too disappointed in the past or have developed a very regimented life that cannot allow love to messy it up.

That would be pretty sad, as an open heart is truly necessary for real happiness.

Much may change for you during Venus Retrograde, and whatever does will prepare you for a most important new chapter in your life that is wanting to develop.

When Saturn goes Direct overnight August 1st/2nd, there will be a Universal clock that will start ticking again, so to speak.  Saturn is the hand of time, and you will have a sense that “it is time”, that “time is marching on”, that you have chosen what road to take now.

That Saturn going direct will be accompanied by other planetary movements that same week that will tend to give you a sense of a big turning point in your life. In the Global world that will also be true, as signs will point to a likely fate for our world. Saturn Direct and Jupiter will be making exact aspect to Israel’s Mars.  That gives a strong indication that Israel will either initiate a military adventure or be attacked within weeks after Saturn goes Direct.  The USA chart is also facing most difficult aspects too, like Pluto very closely opposite its natal Sun.  The time surrounding the eclipses could be very challenging.

You will likely be moving in a set direction at that time, opening up doors that will take you to new events soon to manifest in your life.

And yet relationship issues may not be decided on yet at that time.  Venus will still be retrograde until September 6 and it will not be back to where it started going Retrograde until October 9, at which time more clarity and direction for heart issues will be formed.

And of course there will be two strong eclipses on September 13 and 27 that will tend to shake things up.  They will especially shake up your life if you are holding onto anything that is not truly aligned for you and your life. It could be a time of breakdown of what needs to pass, and breakthrough into new ventures and adventures.

The greater world will also be experiencing big breakdowns and breakthroughs then, as the streams of light for transformation and healing will be especially powerful then. It will be another important portal into the Aquarian Age opening, and light cannot shine through dense blocks in a system, blocks that represent a clinging to the past, and attachments to that which does not serve your Higher Self anymore.

And Higher Self connection is getting more and more important with every new day.  The ego self wants control, and does not truly care about connections, Love, and Truth.  It cares about putting its own needs above the cycles and rhythms of nature and the Universe, and above the heart of any matter.

With so much transformation moving in to rearrange our priorities and lives, we must now allow our soul and heart based Higher Selves to take over.   This is true even if our hearts are taking us to that which does not seem practical or conventionally apt.

The old normal is dying, which means that conventional wisdom is not wise anymore. Following empty rules will not better your life.

The “connections” will be taking over our new normal, so old “shoulds” will not serve you.

Just look at this last week to better understand where the conventional old world is headed. There were two more mass killings- one in a movie theater. There was an African-American woman who apparently committed suicide in jail after being pulled over by a policemen for not using her turn signal when changing lanes.  Donald Trump is polling in first place for the Republican nomination for President of the USA. And you think he cannot possibly become President? Think again. He is rich and famous and brash, the lower ego self that all too often runs America in the old world.

And also this past week, President Obama signed a bill from Congress that makes it almost impossible to legally challenge Monsanto and GMO products.

Your Higher Self is your only way out, and your heart and soul are the only way to get to your Higher Self.

So now as we experience Venus Retrograde, get your heart’s desires in order around relationship. Stay with who is in your heart, stay away from ego run people who will bring you down.

Transform, repair or heal toxic and/or dysfunctional relationships and their patterns during Venus Retrograde– or get out of them.

Also later this week on Friday the 31st, there is a Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius.   Choosing between what turns you on versus what is socially conscious can be an issue at such Full Moons. Leo is a sign wanting what opens its heart and what will be noticed or popular.  Aquarius cares more about group consciousness, social consciousness, and uniqueness.   The Full Moon on the 31st is at 6:43 AM EDT.  Venus, while still retrograde then, will slip back into heart centered Leo again also on the 31st.

Then on Saturday August 1, Saturn goes Direct and that gets the hand of time clicking as we start moving in a more certain direction. And then on August 14 there is a New Moon in Leo that will put more fuel in our hearts and life gas tanks as we rev up for the big events is September:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 13 and a Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries on September 27.

Evolutionary energies are growing stronger and your Higher Self intuitively knows the way forward.

till next week,

Leo
