The Dawning and Astrology Forecast August 4-10

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Eclipse Season has ended; Mercury has gone back Direct;  we have passed through a New Moon in confident Leo last week.

So now we can begin to leave behind for awhile the intense emotional feelings,  the deep emotional processing, and the family dramas. We can now begin to think about where we are at, and what directions we want to move in.

The air is getting cleaner, so to speak, so we can see more clearly what is really going on in our lives.  We are beginning to be more certain of what direction to take, what decisions to make.  Look more closely and you will see the light of hope beginning to shine.

It is getting to be time to show up, to act, to follow our hearts toward what is right for us now.

It is certainly more true than ever, however, that the old world we live in is falling apart at the seams.

Impeachment proceedings against the president of the USA  look pretty certain now.

World economies are being more stressed as renewed tariffs against China look more certain.

Trump has left the Iran peace deal orchestrated by President Obama and is bullying other nations to keep and increase sanctions against them. This affects all the Middle East, as also does the stuckness of the relationship between occupied Palestine and occupier Israel.

The USA last week left a nuclear deal with Russia that was shaped by President Obama, so the relationship with Russia is getting worse and worse.

So we now need to get it together with our personal lives, so we are better prepared to handle what is coming our way soon. And now that the Eclipses and Mercury Retrograde have passed, we are for the most part more able to move forward with more positive energy.

Remember that this falling apart in the world is meant to be, as it helps crash an old corrupt, self centered, random and meaningless, disconnected, soul dead old world.

This week begins with an intense Mars inconjunct Pluto aspect on Sunday August 4.  This opens up the energy field for powerful weather events, world conflicts, and these all too frequent mass murders in the USA.

Remember also that Mars in Leo is moving through degrees of the zodiac that will trigger the position of the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo from August 2017.

What was happening for you that summer?  As you revisit what happened,  process and release, you can make progress in your life around those issues that came up back then.

In the greater world, look at North Korea, China, Israel, Iran, and USA for potential events.  Pakistan and India also have their natal charts triggered this month of Mars going through Leo.

Mars will be exactly triggering the 2017 Total Eclipse in Leo next week after the 11th of August.

And next week begins powerfully on Sunday the 11th as both Uranus and Jupiter change directions that day: Uranus going Retrograde and Jupiter going back Direct.  That puts the energies and meaning of those planets in the spotlight.  Uranus is liberation, revolution, and “outside the box” energies. Jupiter is expansion, upliftment, higher meaning, and resolution.

Those strong planetary turnings will open the doorway to even  more important events later that week.

That Sunday, the USA north and south nodes of the Moon are triggered, suggesting fated events may present themselves.

Also Russia and Ukraine have emphasis in their charts then. Later that week North Korea, Trump, Israel, Netanyahu, and the USA will need to be looked at for potential important events.

It is time to get real with what is happening in our world.  Those of us who experienced the ’60s and ’70s revolution and consciousness evolution see and feel many similarities between that time and now.

Just look at Trump and Nixon. Of course we are talking Impeachment, but also trash talking by both of them about other people.  Trump is more out in the open with his petty insults and hated enemies. We had to hear the infamous Nixon tapes to know about his hatreds and pettiness.

Back then there was also a culture war, as there is now. And the Nixon “silent majority” was well known for its statement of “love it or leave it” against people who protested USA involvement in the war in Viet Nam, or people who criticized the USA for its civil rights abuses at that time.

There was a big sexual revolution then also, and traditional gender identity and roles were challenged. And now LGBTQ and especially Trans movements are more powerful than ever.

People were singing and talking about the dawning of the Age of Aquarius then, and now we are closer than ever to that Age’s gateway.  People knew then, as now, that an old world needed to die so a new one could be born

New Age spiritual and astrology movements were beginning then too, and now those ideas are strong again.

What happened in the 60s and 70s opened the way for what has been revived now.

The Beatles came into people’s lives then to serve as a model for evolution of consciousness, and revolution into a new age.  The Beatles broke up in the late ’70s.

Then John Lennon was killed in December 1980,  and the lights went out for the revolution and evolution into a new age.

President Reagan was voted in a month before the Lennon killing, and we all knew what that meant.

Looking back,  that time served as a time to gain some stability, and now it is time again to rise up again and change this world.

This is not merely about a pendulum going back and forth between liberal and conservative, but more importantly is about finishing the job that was started back in the 60s/70s!

The Millennial generation shows signs it is aligned with the great changes needed in our world, as the younger generation was then.

This election is in some ways similar to 1968.  Eugene McCarthy was the hope to be president and to change the world radically.

But Hubert Humphrey was the moderate and he won the democratic primary and went on to face Richard Nixon. He lost.

Now we have moderate Joe Biden facing off against many who profess more “radical” beliefs like the Green New Deal or Universal Health Care.

So who will face Trump? Or Pence if Trump is impeached?  And will it be a moderate voice like Biden? Or does the Age of Aquarius require a more “radical” candidate like Warren, Sanders, or Gabbard?

I will be getting more serious about finding the astrological answer to that question now as we  move forward.

For now, look for important events to open up in August, events that will show us what directions our world and country are going toward.

This week and early next week have potentially very fiery planetary movements.

As I write this, I see a Mars inconjunct aspect to Pluto event just happened:  killings at a mall in El Paso.  And this is only a few days after another mass killing at a Walmart in Mississippi

Mars (god of war) and Pluto (god of the Underworld) are bringing up the shadows and s–t from the bowels of our nation.

It is time to make revolutionary changes in our country, with guns, violent video games, and ultra violent movies. This is what we are feeding our souls and the souls of our children.

It is time to transform the violent collective consciousness in our world now, and that begins with each of us.

It is time to open our minds and hearts to the peace and love of an Age of Aquarius. If that sounds corny or too dreamy to you, perhaps you have entered the non magical land of Cynical. 

Till next week,

Leo

Beyond Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast July 28- August 3

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on July 27, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we experience an important turning point for our collective and personal Soul journeys.

The first part of this week we will continue to walk through the slowdown of the 4th quarter of a lunar cycle, a cycle that began July 2 at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer. The ride has been emotionally charged, especially considering family issues, but also the rights and empowerment of Women.

Since July 7, we have also been experiencing Mercury being Retrograde; and for many that has meant going back over issues that were thought dead and buried.

In that process, many have been questioning previously made decisions, viewpoints, and opinions.

Mercury Retrograde at times is like a mental rewind, a peering back into the past through our dreams, conversations, and waking memories.

This passing Mercury Retrograde has done its job if you have been loosening up on what you previously determined to be true.

And late on July 31 there is a New Moon in Leo while Mercury Retrograde grinds to a halt (is stationary), just as it shifts back into being Direct.

The Leo New Moon on the 31st gets our creative juices flowing, and begins to bring more fun and more hope into our lives.

But that Leo New Moon will also trigger the big egos of the world to come out and try to dominate.

Trump of course suffers from narcissism with his Leo Rising sign and most especially through his Mars in Leo conjunct that Ascendent.

A healthy Leo is open-hearted, shining a bright light of positivity, creativity, and fun.

Distorted and unhealthy, Leo makes everything centered around Her or His own Self.

The Leo New Moon from July 31 (at 11:12 PM EDT), will begin to trigger important events out in the world.

Swirling around in our collective consciousness since around July 2 at the eclipse:  Trump’s potential impeachment; more culture war stemming from immigration and border issues; Iran being put into a hard core enemy slot by hard liners in the USA, Britain, Saudi Arabia,  Israel, etc; democratic party debates on television; more strutting for power and control against China and Russia; and a bubbling (under the surface) economic crisis.

So as we transition this week out of Eclipse Season and Mercury Retrograde, we are as prepared as we can be for the events coming up soon in the world.

Mercury goes Direct on the 31st at 11:58 PM EDT.  We have written in the past that a couple of days either side of Mercury changing direction, can be the most confusing time in the Mercury cycle.

I am sure you will remember the November 2000 Presidential Election Day in the USA, when Bush ran against Gore.

TV station announcers were going back and forth all night between declaring winner to be Bush and declaring winner to be Gore.  This uncertainty about who won went on several weeks before Bush was declared the winner, with Supreme Court assistance.

That was of course a most exaggerated and dramatic showing of Mercury changing directions. It changed direction from Retrograde to Direct that Election Night.  We are not expecting anything near that confusing, but I do suggest you take in the potential confusion that can accompany Mercury changing directions.

And with the New Moon in Leo only 46 minutes sooner than Mercury going back Direct, we can expect an unusual day or couple of days.

The Democrat Party presidential debates happen on the 30th and 31st of July as Mercury transitions into Direct.  The Leo New Moon is in the evening of the 31st, just before Mercury goes into Direct motion.

We can expect communication miscues during the debates, some that will help determine who may eventually win.   We can also expect surprising positive performances that will shake things up even more.

As there is the Leo New Moon on the 31st, we can expect those who naturally shine brightly from their hearts to do especially well.  And we can also expect the biggest egos to come out during the debates this week.

Remember that though there is a fiery New Moon in Leo and Mercury going Direct on the 31st, it is not a time to go fast forward.  Mercury needs a week or more back Direct before you can be assured of full clarity and direction to show.

And the Leo New Moon is only the beginning of the Leo lunar cycle.  Get your motor running,  let creative ideas in, but most importantly at this New Moon in Leo – Open your Heart up wider, which also opens intuitive knowing that the logical mind cannot find on its own.

On August 1 is Lammas,  a sacred turning point in the year that our ancestors celebrated.  It was a time to celebrate the harvest and also is a time half way between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox.

Feel the energy shifting this week, at mid week and beyond.  Something will wake up inside, especially as you let your heart to open more, and to be more relied upon as you continue to go forward in your life.

If you miss magic being in your life, know that an open heart is more allowing of transformational energies to flow through your being. And that will bring the magic with it.

And often relationships seem to hold our hearts and souls captured, keeping us stuck and shut down.

But Venus in Leo square Uranus in Taurus this Friday August 2 shows some promise in opening stubbornly closed hearts.  It also shows some promise in awakening in us the need and way out of old relationship patterns.

Mars in Leo the next few weeks will trigger events that are connected to what was happening in August 2017.  That was the month that brought us the powerful Total Eclipse New Moon in Leo that travelled exclusively through the USA.

Go back to that time period in your life in order to better understand what may be happening with you now.

In the greater world,  the Charlottesville tragedy revolving around white supremacy happened; as well as North Korea war blustering; and Middle East intensity. So be aware of the USA culture war; China and North Korea conflict with USA; and issues with Iran and Israel.  Any or some of these issues will arise again before summer ends. Impeachment moves should get much stronger then also.

So overall, this week pushes us beyond and through what has been blocking our hearts and our movement forward lately.  Much wants to open up and get moving.  Holding on to the past will keep new energies and new events, and new people from coming through.

It is not easy to let go of the past in our hearts and minds- but memories will always be there for you.

Till next week,

Leo

Waiting for the Light and Astrology Forecast July 21-27

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 20, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The second and last eclipse of Summer Eclipse Season 2019 has passed.

Eclipse Season continues however, as we now process what has been happening lately, and while doing that try to make sense and find meaning to it all.

We need resolution, we need direction, we need to bring everything and everyone back together again.

So many people have been telling me they know what they have left behind in the old chapter, but do no know what to do now or where to go and when.

And this is happening while Mercury is still Retrograde.  So making ultimate decisions or being crystal clear on what direction to take is still not accessible.

But it is a good time to be processing both feelings and thoughts, but best to do so without pushing for the answers or direction.  It is time now to trust that all will be clear and meaning known at the right time.

The 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle begins this Wednesday the 24th with the Moon in Taurus and Sun in Leo.

The Sun is ready to begin to shine a light on the parts of our lives that have stayed in the dark unknowing.   But the Moon is in stubbornly fixed Earth Taurus, and it still needs to make grounded practical sense of it all.

The first turning point toward resolutions and truly moving forward happens on July 31.  That day brings a New Moon in Leo, which means both Sun and Moon are conjunct in fiery Leo.

Mercury also goes Direct that day, so the light at the end of any mental tunnels we are in will be shining for us to see.

But for now, especially out in the greater world, the darkness of separation and enemy making is powerful now.

Since the “send them back” hateful expressions of the Trump, and the pushes for war with Iran, there are breakdowns that are now quite immanent.

America is culturally splitting in two, as it did even more dramatically during the Civil War.  Circumstances are being created that make world war more and more likely every day.   “Smoke and mirrors” are being used to convince everyone that the economy is healthy and growing, which it is not.

This USA president, whether you agree with his policies or not, is psychologically a huge childish mess who is growing increasingly dangerous to our collective well being.

One can feel how “on the edge” everything is now.  Something relatively small may be enough to trigger the dominoes to fall all over the world.

This is our reality now, and each of us needs to work on our own consciousness and lives,  as we seek to transform in alignment with the Universal cycle bringing in the Age of Aquarius.

The old world is corrupt and has been corrupt, long before Trump came around. His presence in our world has brought all our shadows and demons out into the light for all to see. His presence is forcing the truth of our world into our faces

He is a reflection of our American and World shadow values.  Being rich and famous is truly the ultimate experience and goal for people in the old paradigm.  And for many anything one does to reach those goals is OK.  Hence the corruption and selfishness. And anything one feels like doing if they are rich and famous enough, is OK.

Why are athletes and movie stars the most admired people in our world? Why are they so wealthy? Capitalism in its current form is not working for the betterment of our world and its people and creatures. It is not working for the health of our Earth and its environment.

Look at this Epstein guy who has been a pedophile for many years.  And watch now to see the privileged people who have had close relationship with him, and likely were perpetrators too.

Trump and Bill Clinton, for instance, have been pretty good buddies with Epstein. What has been their involvement?

The old paradigm and age are in the decadent phase of their downfall, closer to their demise, as happened with the Roman Empire, the Empire that brought in the old Pisces Age.

Christ was the spiritual symbol that brought in the Pisces Age, and Rome was the material world symbol.

And now the Military Industrial Complex is the material world symbol, and the Christ like consciousness of empathy, compassion, inner Kingdom values, and soul are the spiritual symbol.  This is full circle, as we begin our entry into the Age of Aquarius.

But you know that in conjunction with that entry and the growing beautiful light, love, and truth that shine for it; there is the matter of dealing with a dark dying world and its paradigm that happen at the same time.

In your own life, please go deeper than merely wishing the Trump be gone. He is a symbol of a diseased part of our collective soul.

We need to have a revolution and evolution now so we can move more fully forward in the New Age.

When Uranus (ruling planet of Aquarius) was discovered in 1781, the French and American revolutions were beginning also.

Much of what those revolutions were about was giving the world to the power of the people, no longer a world run by Kings and Queens and Dictators.

These revolutions at the Uranus discovery was the first real glimpse we received of the Age of Aquarius, and some actually believe that era began the Age of Aquarius.

I believe it was our first glimpse of the Age of Aquarius.  Now with our current King Donald/Emperor Trump, we are ready to complete the job of ridding our world of Kings and Queens and Dictators,  controlling governments, or domination by Corporations.

“We the people” need to be ready to take responsibility for our world and our human family.  We need to get ready to build a world of Diversity Within Unity.

With a Shit Storm coming, we need to keep our eye on the ball of revolution and evolution into the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius.

Sure Trump needs to go one way or another, but the issue is much deeper than him. A King or Queen Democrat would not be right either.

So let’s look at our choices and see if there is one who is ready to lead us into an Age of Aquarius, an age “of the people. by the people and for the people”.

After the July 31 New Moon in Leo and Mercury going back Direct, we can expect big world events to show.

This week now, the 4th quarter Moon in Taurus is on Wednesday the 24th, just two days after the Sun goes into Leo on Monday the 22nd.

That Sun in Leo wants to bring more hope into our hearts and to trigger our creative juices to flow.  Of course we need the Moon to join the Sun for full expression, but we only need to wait until July 31 at the Leo New Moon.

Some more fire will shine this week, when Mars in Leo trines Jupiter in Sagittarius on Thursday the 25th.

Feel the confidence that aspect inspires, but also be aware that sparks from that aspect can ignite a fire in a previously sleeping dog.

Till next week,

Leo

Activating the Force and Astrology Forecast March 31-April 6

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 30, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Many people I have talked with recently tell me March’s Mercury Retrograde was really difficult for them.

Yes there was the usual disorientation and confusion of  minds,  some technology snafus, re-connections with people or events from the past,  difficulty in making decisions or knowing what direction to move in, and just plain old difficult.

In the greater world, the Mueller Report was finished and presented to the Attorney General during the last few days of Mercury Retrograde;  but none of it has been made public so “we the people” cannot see the truth of it nor be able to come to our own conclusions.

It certainly looks on the surface as if Trump has been cleared of any serious crimes or illegal activities.

And maybe that is the final word on the matter, but I think not.  My 30+ years of professional Astrology work and study has shown me that Mercury needs to get back to speed before we will feel a full sense of clarity and know what direction issues are moving toward.

Next weekend, after the New Moon in Aries on Friday the 5th of April, fogs of mind should be lifted to a large extent.  And we will be closer to Truths.

Most of this week, we are moving down through the last quarter of the lunar cycle, a cycle that began on March 6 at the New Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune.  That was just a day after Mercury went Retrograde on March 5.

Those two planetary events showed us much inner exploration would be needed, and that clarity and direction would be at a premium for awhile.  Neptune, Pisces, and Mercury Retrograde energies have demanded we let go of mental controls and of strict agendas; so we can instead penetrate deeper into our hearts and souls.  And of course heart and soul realms bring more of a sense of mystery, and a need to surrender our minds and controls.

Then on March 20, the Sun moved into Aries at Spring Equinox, giving us a knowledge that here in the northern hemisphere winter is over and brighter days are ahead. Light and dark minutes of the day were equal then, but the light and yang energies would be then on the rise.

Then on March 28, Mercury went Direct, giving promise that our minds were on the road to more sanity and clearer horizons.

And now this week, we continue our down and yin-ward journeys through the last quarter Moon.

Then at the month’s darkest Moon, we shift to a New Moon in Aries and what in many ways I consider a “True Spring Entrance” point.

Remember that on March 20 the Sun went into Aries and at the same time moved into Spring Equinox.

And then on Friday April 5 at 4:50 AM EDT, the Moon catches up with Sun, both in Aries at around 15 degrees.

That night or the night after, we will be able to see a glimpse of the first crescent light of the New Moon in Aries.

This represents strong new beginnings, as the force of Nature is in the hands of warrior Aries.

World events and personal events have been waiting patiently (or not so patiently) for these new moon gates to open in order to let the blaze of Aries to blast through it.

Aries is straight forward and direct, penetrating, active, assertive, directing, “alpha”, competitive, independent, brave, and most importantly True to Self  as it fights for what it believes in.

This is a good time to empower yourself and to stand tall with self respect.

Aries is the ram who often butts heads in conflict with others. God of War Mars is Aries’ ruling planet.

Places like Palestine, Israel, Syria, Iran, India, Pakistan, Russia, China, etc. may be more susceptible to being triggered into being more angry or forceful.

So might you.  Anger is not always bad. Sometimes it helps us to speak up and assert ourselves, to not take the abuse any longer. Or it may help us to be able to act on behalf of others who are being abused. Or it may help us to fight for principles we believe in.

But of course “over the top” rage may have a very negative effect on us and those around us. War often takes no prisoners and burns down the bridges between people.  Be careful not to burn a bridge you might need to reconnect you to someone or something.

Most importantly, Aries is about taking action, initiating and moving forward.

It is time to at least “rev up the engines” of our lives. No more procrastination.  No more excuses.

There is however, a caveat to the fiery force of action and new starts.   Saturn and Pluto will be in square to this New Moon.

That means that some destructive forces may be involved somehow in this new beginning. At the least there will be more seriousness and gravity attached to the issues coming up now and throughout this new lunar cycle.

The gates are being opened, some Dragons may be running through those gates. The Dragons will clear the way of anything that impedes greater growth and transformation.

The USA natal chart is closely connected to this New Moon in Aries with Capricorn squares of Saturn and Pluto.   A Grand Cross is formed with USA Sun in Cancer and Saturn in Libra.  This is a powerful formation that will bring big challenge to the country over the next month or so.

It is quite obvious to almost anyone now that we are in a quite powerful time to be on the Earth and in America.

We are in transition between Ages, leaving an Age of Pisces that we have been in for over 2000 years.  We are moving into an Age of Aquarius.

That means that a New Paradigm has been developing. The old paradigm is in decay and  so are those who cling to it.

People who belong in the New Paradigm can be of any nation, any race or creed, any gender, any sexual orientation.  They can be democrat or republican, religious or not. They can be big or small, rich or poor, high or low IQ,  from the North or South, East or West.

So we need to let go of our bias and prejudice, and open our hearts and minds to Love and Truth.

And those who are not clearly on the path to the Age of Aquarius are not our enemies.

They may, however, not be good for us and our spiritual path and may give us mirrors of who we used to be, not who we are growing into.

They may be at your job or in your family. And you may need to cut your time with them or at least cut out your desire to share all about your life with them.

You can do all this with love, as everyone is just not on the same path.  If you feel you cannot be your authentic self with anyone, at first you may want to try harder to engage them. And maybe that will work.

But if you keep feeling bad about yourself, keep feeling you need to stay in old family roles you have out-grown, or staying in jobs or relationships only for money or security; it may be time to begin to cut cords and liberate your spirit and soul.

Now.

Till next week,

Leo

Mercury Back Direct and Astrology Forecast March 24-30

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on March 23, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides now, which means we are shifting our consciousness, our minds, and perhaps our inner beliefs as well.

Mercury is finally going back Direct this week, and as it goes back Direct we have the promise of receiving more clarity and direction soon.

Mercury goes back Direct on Thursday March 28 at 9:59 AM EDT.

Now that does not mean all of a sudden everything is crystal clear, or that signs pointing us in the right direction will be abundant and billboard certain.

Nevertheless, we should feel the gear shift in our minds changing from reverse to neutral,  then to Drive.

The neutral gear is on right before, right on , and right after the time Mercury goes direct.

That time period can actually be the most distorted, most foggy, or most confusing time in the Mercury cycle.

Mercury “rules” thinking, sharing information, and communication.  So during a few days surrounding that shift out of reverse, we may feel like everything is getting better for finding clarity and direction.  But usually it takes an additional week or 10 days before a more complete and clear picture appears.

As we have been writing, April 5 at the Aries New Moon is a good marking point for moving forward with clear direction and intention.

But even then, both Saturn and Pluto will be square the New Moon, which could bring some obstacles experienced on our path forward.

But for this week,  let in the notion that clarity is wanting to form now.  But the slow process of Mercury getting back to its usual Direct speed,  deems it is still important to hold back and wait for the clouds to fully part before jumping to conclusions or leaping before you look.

With Mercury slowing down to shift from Reverse to Direct, the Mueller report comes out, though in some kind of secrecy.

How much of it will be made public?  Why are there no new indictments?  Will other branches of government or other legal avenues still be investigating.  And what is in this report?

Not being made totally public seems to me to be an obvious affront to our democracy, which is “of the people by the people, and for the people”. Is it not?

But Mercury Retrograde is still in force till Thursday the 28th; then immediately afterward will still be rather murky in its lenses for 10 days or so afterward.

So clarity will be slow to form around this Mueller report.  And Trump’s fate will not be sealed yet either.

But as we have been expressing, Trump is not the most important issue. He is merely an actor in this drama of a changing of ages and paradigms.

The transformation of our consciousness and heart is of utmost importance now.  And we each need to become what we believe in.

We each also need to know and own and be true to our role or function or purpose in this changing world now.

The Military Industrial Complex is coming down, out of the form it is currently occupying.

So the economy and military world condition of the USA is only in the beginning stages of transformation.  This transformation will happen no matter who the elected officials are.

Pluto (in its 1st ever natal USA Return), Saturn and Jupiter will be making triple conjunction with the USA natal Pluto. This happens 2019-2024. 

In its natal chart, the USA has Pluto in Capricorn in its 2nd house.  That placement is symbolic of the Military Industrial Complex.

The transformation will be immense and will affect the whole world.  The need to reform  and transform this world and each of our consciousness’ into the better angels of the Age of Aquarius is so important now, as that endeavor will help provide the foundation for this New World.

It is important to elect people who are most attuned to the principles, values and ideals of a new age and paradigm.

So 2020 becomes so important in that regard, especially so because right after the November 2020 Election Day, in December 2020: Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, giving us a sign that a portal into the Age of Aquarius will be opening then.

This Week:

In addition to the shift of Mercury from Retrograde to Direct this week, we also have Venus going into Pisces on Tuesday the 26th; the 4th and last quarter Moon in Capricorn on the 28th; and Mars entering Gemini on the 30th.

Venus going into Pisces on the 26th is a wake up call for rebooting our heart energy to include more empathy and compassion now.

Quan Yin is an apt archetype for Venus in Pisces.   Venus in Pisces, with its compassion, does need, however, to have the kind of boundaries that stop them from being used or from sacrificing themselves into a selfless position.

Venus will stay in Pisces until April 20, so you have some time to do some healing and give more care to your relationships.

In doing counseling of couples for many years, I have noticed the most improvements in relationships when each partner can truly put themselves in the shoes of the other.

Empathy is a solid bridge between people’s hearts. This does not mean forgetting about your own needs. But it does mean putting their needs as important as your own.

The 4th quarter Moon in Capricorn is on the same day as Mercury going back Direct.

So it is good to be aware that the Moon is darkening every day until the New Moon in Aries on February 5.

So the Yin-ward journey of this darkening 4th quarter Moon in Capricorn,  is needing to be made real and needs to hold strong boundaries.

There is no room now for pity parties; there is plenty of room for making plans that will produce action later.

Mars goes into Gemini on the 31st at 2:12 AM EDT.   It stays there until May 15, when it goes into Cancer. On its way through Gemini in early May, it makes conjunction with the USA natal Mars in Gemini.

And it also will oppose transiting Jupiter in Sagittarius, which will be opposing the USA natal Mars in Gemini.

And Trump’s natal Sun and Moon in Gemini and Sagittarius, respectively, will be also aspected as they make close natal contact with the USA militant and Military Mars.

This shows that the USA police and/or military will be in the spotlight this Spring 2019.

For all of us Mars in Gemini signifies a time when we are more curious, more filled with questions and desires to question authority or accepted ways of being.

Mars in Gemini motivates us to learn or teach;  to get more objective facts; to communicate, write, or talk more; to open our minds to new ways of thinking.

Next week we experience the force of a New Moon in Aries on April 5. I will have a new video out before then.

Till next week,

Leo

Better Angels and Astrology Forecast March 17-23.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on March 16, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week Mercury Retrograde continues its trickster journey in foggy Pisces, making it difficult to know anything for sure.  Mercury will stay Retrograde until March 28.

And around the time Mercury gets back to speed, we experience the focused force of a New Moon in Aries on April 5. Till then we lay back and do more inner exploration and processing.

There is not now much clear and focused planetary energy for us to use for decisions, direction, or positive action now. It is not time yet.

Nevertheless, this week we will experience an energy shift mid week, as the Spring Equinox combines with a Full Moon in Aries/Libra on Wednesday March 20.

Spring Equinox, as always, brings the Sun into Aries.  What is different this year, however, is the fact that the Moon moves into Libra- exactly opposite that Spring Equinox Sun in Aries a mere few hours later.

Spring Equinox is at 5:58 PM EDT on March 20.  The Full Moon, with Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra, is at 9:43 PM EDT that day.

We are beginning to open up to energies of forward movement, but important movement forward is not in the cards yet.  Mercury Retrograde is still sorting things out in our minds, helping us to process feelings and thoughts that may be keeping us stuck.

This Full Moon is about working out any dilemmas we may hold around balancing our needs for independence and being true to Self on the one hand (Aries), with being sensitive to relationship and listening to others on the other hand.(Libra).

Aries fights for what it believes in, Libra seeks peace at all costs.  Aries is forceful and often competitive, Libra is socially correct and a mediator between opposing voices or opinions. Aries is governed by Mars, Libra by Venus.  Which side have you been leaning toward lately? Might be time to find a new balance between these two opposites.

After this Full Moon, we enter the waning half of the lunar cycle, directing us to coast “downhill” before the strong forward movement of the New Moon in Aries on April 5.

Many people I talked with this last week were going through rather “on the edge” situations in their lives.  Self destructive thoughts, near relationship breakups,  and fears of old patterns coming back were some of those edgy situations.

Sometimes it takes these “on the edge” challenges to push us over the edge into true change and transformation.

Speaking of “on the edge”, this last week our world experienced another mass murder, this time at a mosque in New Zealand where 49 people were massacred by a white supremacist.

These massacres are happening more and more often, and show us there is much that needs healing in our world.

The world is split between nationalists and globalists, with little apparent link between them.  Nationalists want to “clean out” all peoples who migrated into their country from other countries and cultures.

Globalists want to join all peoples together, even within a country.  Immigrants then join with more “pure” members of the country.

So, for instance, in France many nationalists want only purely French people in the country, not those who have immigrated to France from other cultures, largely Muslim dominated cultures.

They want to make France great again. MAGA would be changed to MFGA.  And many other western countries are going through similar challenges.

In Britain, the people voted in a referendum to leave the European Union (Brexit). They want to return to Britain as it used to be: Nationalism.  Obviously, those who want to stay in the Union are more globalist.

But do you see here the stew of Diversity within Unity boiling over chaotically? Choice here has been between old unity of old country versus more diversity that is unregulated in the country.

But the immigrants will not ultimately be thrown out, so the Diversity will stay. And Unity of France or England or USA with all that diversity is the only possible solution.

In the USA minorities and women are getting stronger and stronger. In not too many years minorities will be the majority. And there is no stopping the empowerment of women anymore.

If you are a progressive or globalist or even socialist, there is no stopping the world becoming more how you envision it.

The only question is how ugly, how violent, how hateful, how destructive will our world get in its process to becoming the Diversity Within Unity world it is meant to be.

And can we destroy our world and not get to the promised land? And can we destroy our air, oceans, etc. on the way to this Age of Aquarius?

This is why it is so important now to let hatred leave our hearts, to let love in.

Yes we each need to stand our ground and fight for the world we believe in!! Can we do it without hatred?

Can we do it with little or no violence? Can we make this revolution work without triggering anyone to use weapons of mass destruction?

Can civil disobedience be our path into this New Age?

So let’s quit making everything about Donald Trump? He is a pawn in the grand scheme. He is playing his role in the world drama. As Shakespeare wrote in As You Like It, “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players”.

Trump is there to show us how off track our country has become: worshipping wealth and fame above all else, letting the higher values of the Constitution and Bill of Rights become lesser values in our world.

Whether he is impeached or not is not the question.  To Be or Not to Be our best selves, aligned with our better angels is the question.

And now each of us must find our better angels inside ourselves.  And that will bring us our better world.  We each must be the world we believe in.

Yes we are about to experience the Shit Hitting the proverbial Fan.  But in that place on the edge is where we find our breakthroughs and awakenings into the Age of Aquarius, into a world governed by Love and Truth.

Sure that may seem far away as we look at the greater world now. But can you remember when you were on the edge emotionally when you lost that loved one, or were abandoned in a relationship? Can you remember that job you lost that meant so much to you, as you worried if you could pay your bills?

We have all had to go to the edge in order to wake up to something; or to be humbled; or to see everything in a new light; or to let go of what was blocking our way; or to become more empathetic or compassionate,; or to transform a belief or old toxic pattern; or to break through old programming; or to liberate ourselves from a stuck place, etc.

And now our world has come to the end of an Old Chapter that is not serving our spirits and souls anymore; that is holding back our natural evolution; that is blocking our path to better relationships; that is keeping us in a paradigm of dog-eat-dog separation; materialism;  lack of meaning and sacredness; without enough love or truth, etc.

These next few weeks may have us continue facing our shadows or inner demons, as we wait for the grand openings after April 5.

You are getting ready for new direction and new movement forward soon.

For now hang back and do not make big decisions or start major projects or impulsively leap into anything for escape.

Till next week,

Leo

Eclipse Season, Mercury going Direct, and Astrology Forecast December 2-8

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 1, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting energy tides this week, as there is a New Moon in Sagittarius and Mercury going back Direct toward the end of the week.

This coming Thursday December 6 shows us Mercury going back Direct.  Then on Friday December 7 at 2:20 AM EST there is a New Moon in Sagittarius.

Even though our days are getting darker till Winter Solstice on the 21st of December, we will nevertheless symbolically feel and see more “light” as free spirited fiery Sagittarius is where the New Moon will reside.

And the light of clarity will begin to flicker again as Mercury goes back Direct. It may be a very faint light of clarity at first, yet no more than 10 days or so after it goes Direct, a fuller clarity will be revealed.

Sagittarius is like a fireplace of warmth and light as we move toward the darkness and cold of approaching winter.

Sagittarius is expansive, progressive, and always seeks to take the high road. It sees meaning in everything, and believes that solution to problems is inevitable. Hence it has faith and confidence in life and the Universe.

Its potential downfalls are in leaping before it looks, being impulsive, taking ill advised adventures, believing it is always right, and forgetting it has a body.

The Centaur’s archer shoots for the sky, forgetting it is has a horse’s body below. So Sag can sometimes be so manic in its zeal and excitement that it forgets to ground itself in the reality of the physical world.

Mercury has been Retrograde since November 16, the same day as Venus went back Direct. It started its Retrograde process on October 5.

So issues of relating and relationships have been on the front burners of our hearts and minds for a few months now.

And when Venus gets back to its original Retrograde starting point of 10+ degrees of Scorpio on December 17, our relationship lives can gain more sanity and clear direction.

So don’t go fast -forward on relationship issues at the Pearl Harbor invasion anniversary of December 7, when the New Moon in Sagittarius arrives.

And don’t go fast forward with decisions and relationship plans on December 6 when Mercury goes back Direct.

Wait till after mid December to begin being clear enough and energized enough for your life’s journey into the New Chapter to resume.

Not long afterward, on January 5, the power of transformation will drastically amp up. That is when the first of 2 eclipses will be ignited:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn conjunct both Saturn and Pluto.

And Eclipse Season pretty much begins after the New Moon in Sagittarius this week on December 7.   The first winds of new changes will blow in afterwards, then intensify greatly after the Solar Eclipse on January 5.

This New Moon in Sagittarius is more complicated than the usual New Moon in Sagittarius, as both Mars and Neptune- conjunct in Pisces- will square that New Moon in Sagittarius.

That Mars/Neptune conjunction in oceanic Pisces will bring in huge waves of chaotic emotions and events.

Is it not getting rather obvious that we are on the precipice of enormous change and transformation in the world?

The Trump presidency is about to face the strong grim hand of the Mueller investigation, and who knows where his presidency will go from there.  The American stock market is getting closer to crashing. And America seems to be ramping up the energies of battle against Iran, Syria, China, and Russia.

The Solar Eclipse on January 5 is in close opposition to the USA Natal Sun in Cancer.  Heavyweights Pluto and Saturn will be conjunct that New Moon and also opposite the USA natal Sun in Cancer.

The USA is so ready for powerful transformation now.

And many personal lives are also getting ready for further transformation and change.

So many people have been waking up these past couple of years, and are rejecting the old ways from an old paradigm and age.

We have been conditioned and programmed to be and act as the old world has required us. We are now breaking those chains and embracing new consciousness and ways of being.

The old world is slipping away no matter how much people cry for MAGA.  The past is in our rear view mirrors, but the future is being created now in our hearts, minds and lives.

The Universe has been showing us through its planetary cycles and symbols that we are needing to shift our ways of relating and communicating. Venus and Mercury Retrograde have been recently giving us that message and the experiences needed to make the changes. Here are some lessons people have been learning for the consciousness of the New Age:

Number 1 relationship lesson is to be truly present in our relating, not distracted by other things. That presence is the only way to truly listen to and see someone else.

Number 2 lesson is to know that empathy is necessary in making a healthy relationship of any kind. If we cannot put ourselves in the shoes of another we cannot understand their journey and perspectives. Just the process of trying to empathize brings us closer together.

Number 3 lesson is that no one is in essence superior to anyone else. Each of us is different  from one another, with equal value, and not superior or inferior.

Number 4 lesson is that everyone wants to love and be loved, no matter how they seem.

Number 5 lesson is that communication is so important to any kind of relationship. Authentically expressing our truth is not enough. We also need to be aware of how the other person “hears” what we are saying. We may need to rearrange our wording or our tone so the other person can truly take in what we mean to say.

Number 6 lesson is that it “takes two to tango” as my Mother used to say. It is not usually a matter of someone being right and someone else being wrong. And it is usually not a matter of someone being the villain perpetrator and the other an innocent victim. Creating stories in our minds like that are hard to acknowledge and release. And if not released, these stories come with us into new relationships, causing dysfunctions once again.

Each party needs to be held accountable for their part of the issue. Even if one person has cheated on the other , or one person has an addiction that has hurt the relationship; the relationship problem is always deeper than the outer circumstances would suggest.

Nevertheless, sometimes it is right to leave a relationship as the original contract has been ended or breached, and it is time to move on.

And now our contracts as individuals in the old age and paradigm has been ending. The Aquarian Age awaits us.   We are each in the process of consciousness transformation into that Age and Paradigm.

The next few months of Winter Eclipse Season 2019 is about to begin. I will have a new video coming out within the next couple of weeks.

Till next week,

Leo
