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

Riding the Roller Coaster and Astrology Forecast November 25- December 1.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 24, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The recent Full Moon in Gemini and Venus being Retrograde are in our rear view mirrors now.

So now we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle, and we still have Mercury in Retrograde motion.

Later on in early December, on the day of the New Moon in Sagittarius, Mercury will also go Direct that day:  December 6. That day also represents the first winds of change for Eclipse Season 2019 blowing in.

So on December 6 there will be a strong feeling of moving forward.

From now till then, we are moving kinda downward and inward in anticipation and preparation for that important movement forward after the 6th.

For the last few months we have been confronting and attempting to resolve and heal various relationships and relationship patterns.

This has been and is essential, as working out these relationship patterns is helping to build the foundation of our New Chapter of life more fully and strongly.

No one wants too much heavy baggage to carry as we travel more fully into this New Chapter.

Some have gone back into childhood wounds and issues, or even past life relationship issues in order to work through the inner demons of relating that keep us stuck.

Letting go of the past relationship baggage means we need to let go of the old stories and dramas in our heads and hearts.

For instance, if you are telling yourself that nothing ever works out for you in relationships,  you need to confront that story inside yourself.

If you have told yourself that all men are selfish or that all women are conniving, for instance, then that will limit your ability to draw in men or women who are good for you.

And you know sometimes it is so difficult to let go of these stories, as we apparently have much proof from the past that will prove our point.

But this is the chicken that came before the egg, as believing something will tend to make it happen.

But regardless of which came first, the negative event or the negative belief, confronting the belief will serve you well.

Maybe a large part of the true reason no relationship has ever worked for you before is that you do not really like or respect yourself.  This can be worked on and resolved or healed sufficiently to help you let go of the story and attract better relationships.

So now, with Mercury still Retrograde, Venus not yet back to “normal”, and the lunar cycle in its darkening phase; we still are pausing and maybe rewinding our life memories in order to build healthier more functional relationships and lives.

Remember also that Jupiter is now in expansive, progressive, inspiring,  uplifting, and adventurous Sagittarius.

For the next year, while Jupiter stays in Sagittarius, you will have more ability to see things from a wider perspective, and more help in finding meaning or resolution for issues that have previously held you back.

And also remember that in January 2019 we will experience 2 more powerful eclipses, eclipses that are meant to help us break out of stuck places in our minds, hearts, and lives.

And this weekend, going into Monday/Tuesday, we will feel things opening up more as the Sun makes exact conjunction with Jupiter in Sagittarius on the 26th.

For many this will translate into desires for expansiveness, freedom, and/or travel and adventure.

Just keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde, so it is best not to be too impulsive or to jump to conclusions too quickly. That is one of the “side-effects” of the rising of spirit from Jupiter and Sagittarius.

Best now to process our thoughts and emotions, to find higher meaning for our lives,  and to get more in touch with what inspires us.

You can think more about final decisions, or taking action after the 6th or December, and probably not till after early January.

We enter the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle on Thursday the 29th, with the Moon in Virgo and Sun in Sagittarius.

We will receive a dose of sobering reality to counter any ideas or plans that are over inflated, grandiose, or in some cases just too positive.

Sag has a tendency to see the “glass as half full”, while Virgo has a tendency to see the “glass as half empty”. Truth lies somewhere in between.

On Friday the 30th, Venus in Libra will oppose Uranus in Aries. 

The days surrounding this planetary event will bring to some a breakthrough or awakening around relationships that have previously felt stuck. For others it will be a breaking away or freeing from an old relationship pattern or even liberation from a person.

Venus is no longer Retrograde, but it still has not gone back to where it started in Retrograde, which is a significant fact. It will be back to that place on December 17, completing that Venus cycle and completing the investigation and repairing of relationship.

Remember this can be a romantic relationship but also can be a family one, or friendship, or work related relationship.

In the greater world now, everything is certainly way out of healthy balance. So much is shaking up and breaking down. As we have been letting you know would happen, the stock market has been going down.

Saturn in Capricorn has been opposing the USA natal Venus and Jupiter in Cancer. And Uranus has been squaring the USA natal Pluto in Capricorn in its 2nd house (money, comfort, and security).

Eclipse Season will bring that same transiting Saturn to oppose the USA natal Sun in Cancer, while a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn will also oppose the USA Sun in Cancer.

Saturn and Capricorn are not expansive. They contract and limit. They represent gravity and hence bringing down to Earth.

This will mean more stock market downfall, though it may have a short up-lift as part of the process.

Our economy is transforming. Eventually, and hopefully there will be a good balance between capitalism and socialism as the result.

And Trump will face more slings and arrows thrown his way, especially by Mueller who heads the investigations of Trump.

And combative issues with Iran, Russia, Syria, China, and North Korea will soon expand also.

Cries for solutions for Climate Change will get louder and louder now also.

All is part of the enormous transformation of the country and world. Uncontrolled fear and panic are our only real enemies.

We are in certain movement toward the Age of Aquarius; and this current transition into a New Chapter of our collective and personal lives leads us into that New Age, which will begin with baby steps in the 2020’s, pretty much after the next presidential election.

Keep the faith, keep fighting for what you believe in, be aligned with the natural energies, frequencies and cycles of  the Universe, and keep your center and integrity during this roller coaster ride of our lives now.

Till next week,

Leo

 

 

 

Mars Direct, Taking Action, and Astrology Forecast August 26- September 1

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 25, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Energy shift again this week, as there is a Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th, then Mars goes Direct on the 27th.

Last week Mercury went Direct after a rather difficult Retrograde time period that coincided with 2 of the Eclipses this Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

After Mercury goes Direct, mental fogs begin to lift as issues we were previously questioning begin to clear up.

And out in the world it happened almost in a textbook astrological fashion.

A few days after Mercury went Direct last week, the jury finally ended deliberation and found Trump’s campaign manager Manafort guilty on 8 felony counts ; his ex lawyer Cohen admitted guilt and implicated Trump; and Molly Tibbets who was lost for weeks was finally found dead in an Iowa cornfield and her killer was apprehended.

In your own life, did any issues clear up last week for you too?  If not this week it will likely happen soon, as in some cases it takes up to 10 days or so after Mercury is back Direct before clarity and direction are found. Mercury went Direct on the 18th/19th of August.

Adding to the feeling of direct motion this week is the fact that Mars goes Direct on the 27th.

Mars is desire, will, assertion, force, and action.  When Mars is Retrograde, deep in our souls we are deciding what we truly want and/or what action we will take or direction we choose to move toward.

After the 27th you will begin to know more clearly what you want.  Give it up to 10 days or so before you are entirely clear.  Taking action will begin to come more easily too, as will the courage to do what is needed or wanted.

In the greater world, people or countries that have held back in any way will begin to be more decisive and more ready to take action.

But the “corner will not be turned” out of the old chapter and into a new chapter until “hand of time” Saturn goes Direct on September 6.

Then 3 days later there is a New Moon in Virgo on the 9th.   The New Chapter is ‘”earthed” in reality after that.

But coming back to this week, Sunday the 26th is a Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces at 7:56 AM EDT.

This is usually a very gentle full moon. But a Venus square Pluto aspect that day will likely bring more intensity than usual. And of course a direction-changing forceful Mars will also be strong in our energy fields for a few days.

The Full Moon has the Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces.

Virgo is order and efficiency, simplicity and discernment, reality in the material world, and needs for purity and perfection on the physical plane of existence. It sees what is wrong or flawed and seeks to correct or fix it.

Pisces is other-worldly, dreamy and idealistic, sensitive and unconditional, flowing, feeling, and connected to the worlds of consciousness and the world of dreams, metaphors and symbols.

They both can be selfless and doing for others or a cause bigger than themselves.

So at this Full Moon in Pisces, put your ego away and surrender to the forces of nature and the Universe.

Find a balance between outer world reality (Virgo) and inner dimensions of consciousness (Pisces).  Do your best to combine body (Virgo) and soul (Pisces). Though many religions try to separate them, making the body an enemy and the soul heavenly, in actuality they belong together all the time: Soul giving energy, consciousness, and purpose to our sacred vessel bodies.

Venus square Pluto that same day could bring some relationship challenges, meant to help us transform old patterns that no longer work in the relationship.

Then on Monday the 27th, Mars goes Direct and time to begin to move forward.

Last week the Mueller investigation showed us it has some claws now, and Donald Trump is in trouble.

As the heat gets more turned up, he will likely try to distract through making other issues more important, so watch for world conflicts, especially with Syria and Iran.  China, and North Korea also bear watching.

In October/November Trump’s natal Mars in Leo is triggered by Jupiter in Scorpio and transiting Mars in Aquarius.  That is when he will be fighting for his life and perhaps turning up the heat on world conflicts too.

The economy could also be challenged this Autumn and Winter, as transiting Saturn opposes the USA natal Venus and Jupiter, signifying gravity affecting USA sense of security, well being, and positive feelings.

For Donald Trump 2019 and 2020 will be most challenging,as Pluto will oppose Trump’s natal Venus in Cancer and Saturn in Cancer.  Security, safety, and well being will be in conflict for him. This is when impeachment will likely be front and center for him.

It is obvious to most now, I believe, that the world as we have known it is leaving us.

All is happening for a reason, as we are moving out of an old Age and moving into a New Age of Aquarius.

Feelings of doom and gloom need to be replaced by a knowing that “we the people” are now responsible for rebuilding our country and world.

And the foundation for that world is formed with our higher values and principles. Many will be in desperation and survival to the extent that they will not care about these values.

But when one sees the bigger picture of world transformation, one can divorce oneself from desperate fear, hatred of enemies, and panic.

Trump is meant to be in this position in our world now.   And he will likely not go down as easily as Nixon did.  The comparisons between those eras and Presidents is remarkable, so similar.

The job was not finished back in the ’60s and ’70s.

Now the young people of this country can be mentored by the elders who went through the Nixon years, as long as those elders stay aware that the world is being left to future generations who must shape this new revolution and evolution with their signature, not ours.

Quit complaining about Trump and the people who follow him.  You are playing into his need for attention and drama and his narcissism.  We are adding to the division of cultures in our country and world. There is nothing to fight against. There is plenty to fight for.

We can concentrate on keeping our higher values and principles, being aligned with the Universe and our Souls, keeping spiritual and humanitarian perspectives, and fighting to be heard and fighting for what we believe in.

There is no going back to “normal” anymore.  We are in a New Era on the way to the Age of Aquarius. Let’s make the best of it!

Till next week,

Leo

Mercury Direct, Mars soon too, and Astrology Forecast August 19-25

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on August 18, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this week’s forecast, Mercury is stationary, getting ready to shift from Retrograde to Direct at 12:25 AM EDT on Sunday August 19.  All other USA time zones have Mercury going Direct late on August 18.

When Mercury has slowed down and shifts to Direct, the mind is in flux, and things may feel more confusing or unusual or strange.

This will continue until around Monday the 20th, when our mind should again begin to feel more stable and clear.

Then for some it may take another week or so before they feel more back to normal mentally.

Waiting to make big decisions is a good thing now as Mercury’s trickster self often comes out to play when it shifts direction.

Keep in mind that Mars, however, remains Retrograde this week. It goes back Direct on August 27.

So clear direction, needs for willful action, and needs to know what you want now, are still on hold.

What do you really want for your life now?  What needs to be let go of in order to leave room for what you truly want?

At first do not think about it being practical or not. Get in touch with your “wants” from a pure or core place inside of you.

Once that is clear, then you can start your inner dialogue about how those desires can be grounded in reality.

And also while Mars is still Retrograde, get in touch with how these desires must be connected to your Soul or Spirit self, not just material desires.

You have been growing and evolving, finding your purpose and authentic Self in this world and Universe.

All your choices now can be connected to both your “higher self” and “lower self”. It is like telling a higher power, “make my will be thou will”.

Picking a home or relationship, for instance, that is connected to your True Self is just as important or actually more so, than price, image, and practical reality.

Are paying your bills or making your ego satisfied the reasons you came to the Earth?

Do you have a purpose? I do not mean a grandiose purpose necessarily, but rather a function in the human collective for the new world.

And a homemaker or mechanic, for instance, contribute to and service our community,  Earth and Universe- IF that is truly their function not just what they had to do to survive.

And one’s purpose or function can change over the course of a lifetime. The homemaker decides she will best serve and be deeply satisfied as a lawyer after her kids are mature enough or gone from the home.

But the point being made is that it is important to know what you want and what purpose is right for you at a deep level.

There are too many doctors or lawyers or CEO’s that took those careers because they gave them status or wealth. I am not now saying it is necessarily wrong to want those things in a career. I am saying that those reasons are best not being the main reasons for wanting the career. Being “called” to be a healer or doctor is most important to the professions in the medical or healing world.

Our world would be best served if everyone was doing what is deeply connected to their true purpose and function first and foremost.

The Age of Aquarius has Diversity within Unity as its signature, so finding your unique and authentic self and its place in the whole is most important.

I can tell you from experience that the Universe will help support you if you are in alignment with Your Truth and its contribution to the Earth, human community, and Universe.

The walls of the old ways of being separated and disconnected are leaving us now.

Yes the ways of separation inside ourselves is being broken down also. That does not mean all is unified in a way that each person must wear the same uniform as everyone else and hence losing of one’s individuality.

We are breaking down the walls of separation and at the same time opening the way for each person or entity to find and honor their true authentic Self and from that place contribute to the Whole Universe, Whole Earth and its creatures, and the Whole human community.

But first each of us must actualize our true whole Self by accepting our own inner diversity.

We cannot judge harshly or seriously repress any part of our multi-faced and multi-dimensional human Self.

We can keep each facet of ourselves alive and accepted, and expressed in the best way for our whole and unified Self.

As we accept all our many facets of self, we are doing what is needed in the world and human community within our own soul.

If your parents or other authorities shamed you for your passion or kindness or slowness or forcefulness, for instance, you tend to dislike that part of yourself and suppress it. Or rebel and force it on others.

The same is done out in the world. If someone is gay, for instance, they may be programmed by society or family or friends to judge themselves, be ashamed of themselves, and may suppress how they naturally express themselves or act out in the world. Or they stay in the closet. It takes real courage and self honoring to come out of judged boxes.

And each of us has been told who we are “supposed to be” in order to be accepted and not judged.

So we may then be ashamed and hide certain parts of our selves, keeping those traits boxed in our own inner closet.

Now the walls are coming down, we are each awakening, and knowing from a deeper place than ever before, that all in its essence is good, and all is connected.

Eclipse Season is still alive, but the energies are not as intense now. We are kind of seeing where all is at as the dust settles. Then later we will be ready to act in accordance with our collected soul wholeness and true function or purpose in this New Chapter of life on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

Mercury goes Direct at 12:25 AM EDT on August 19. And within two hours of the beginning of Mercury going Direct, Jupiter trines Neptune.

This is a potentially very spiritual combination, one that can take us into other dimensions or realities.  Your meditations may have more magic, as can be in your consciousness and life with synchronicity and meaningful symbols from the Universe.

But that same combination of Jupiter with Neptune can bring confusion or chaos. There are no boundaries with Jupiter/Neptune, so you could either fly into mystical dimensions or be in situations or mind frames that have you feeling disoriented.

Heads up this week, especially from late Saturday through Monday. Keep alcohol or drugs in moderation this week.

On the 22nd/23rd (12:09 AM EDT) the Sun goes into Virgo for its annual 30 day trip.

This can be a rather sobering time of the Virgo virgin needing things pure, ordered, efficient, and with discerning eye.

Virgo seeks perfection and can easily focus in on whatever is stopping things from being perfect or ordered.  So it tends to find what is wrong, and then sets out to fix, heal, and perfect.

Virgo time of year opens the doors of schools and the gathering of the harvest. It seeks simplicity and order, and can get rather obsessed with what it is thinking or doing.  It is a natural analyzer and wants everything to be real, warts and all.

When the Moon catches up with the Sun in Virgo on September 9th, it creates a New Moon in Virgo. After that we will be even more focused on fixing what needs to be fixed, healing what needs to be healed, working harder, and making things real and manifest.

Summer Eclipse Season will pretty much end then, and it will be time to get down to reality, but also to make real all that was merely concept or idea before.

Much has happened in the world during this Eclipse Season, and now as the Sun in Virgo will tend to sober us up beginning this week, we will look from a very real place at the condition of our world, country, and personal lives.

Yet being sober and real will also help us to come up with plans to fix what has gone wrong so we can move forward in the best way.

Till next week,

Leo
