Black Panther and Astrology Forecast April 8-14

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we enter the darkening last quarter of the lunar cycle and the last week of Mercury Retrograde.

The actual beginning of the last quarter Moon happens in Capricorn early morning of Sunday April 8. It signifies Capricorn waiting patience holding back the new beginning of Aries.

This whole week shows nighttime energy, a symbol of the power of the Feminine.

The Black Panther has been showing itself to me just before my writing this blog today.

She is a symbol of the Dark Feminine, of Mystery, and she is strongest right at a New Moon, as that is the darkest time of the lunar cycle, right before the dawn of the Moon’s crescent light.

The Black Panther therefore represents death and rebirth, which happens as we transition from last quarter Moon to the New Moon in Aries on April 15. At that moment of transition, all is unknown and a mystery- no more past and a future not yet known.

We have been letting you know the importance of that New Moon in Aries, which happens to be closely conjunct the awakening lightning of Uranus. It will also be square the deeply transformational Pluto, which we will write more about next week.

So this week, before that New Moon, allow your self to go deeper into your own inner night, so you can release as much psychological baggage as possible. If you are confronted by your past, especially your old stories from the past, do not be afraid it is back in your life again.

It is showing up so you can see it another time before it is purged from the deep well inside your soul.

You no longer need to hold onto old demons or old ego stories that keep you chained to the past.

This is a big and important New Moon in Aries, on the same day as Mercury goes Direct.  So lightening your load of old garbage will make you more able to enter your New Chapter without undue restrictions.

During this Mercury Retrograde, have old friends or lovers come back to you in dreams or waking flashes of memory or even back in physical reality?

If so they are to remind you of that which has helped to create an old story or a continuing dysfunctional pattern you no longer need carry.

And they also may represent a part of your self you have abandoned that now needs to be re-membered in your soul and psyche.

The dark passage of the Black Panther is shown also by a Sun square Pluto aspect midweek.

The Sun is challenged then by “guardian of underworld” Pluto, darkening the light of the Sun.  Black Panther has also been represented in myth as that which swallow the light of a Solar Eclipse, which is always part of a New Moon.

On Saturday the 14th, a day before the Aries New Moon, bright inspirational Jupiter is in sextile aspect to the same darkening Pluto.

This sextile forms a Yod or “Finger of God” with the USA natal Mars in Gemini. That Mars in Gemini forms a very close conjunction with Trump’s natal Sun and opposite his natal Moon in Sagittarius.

the Yod forming with the USA Mars symbolizes an important turning point for USA military and police business. And of course Trump with his natal chart is an important player in this turning point.

It is quite revealing that there are important events less than a month after the New Moon in Aries.   

There is a summit between North and South Korean presidents in late April and a potential summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un in May. This meeting will bring peace or war to the world

Also in early May the USA and Trump decide whether to continue with the deal struck by President Obama with Iran.  If sanctions on Iran are brought back, that will nullify the Iran deal with the USA and bring increased danger in the Middle East. If the deal is kept peace will likely stay intact.

And also in mid May the USA is scheduled to move their embassy to Jerusalem after the recent declaration by president Trump that Jerusalemsy is the eternal Capitol of Israel.

The Palestinians and Muslim world see Jerusalem as their sacred city and claim the eastern half as their Capitol.

So you can see how putting the USA embassy there is a potentially triggering event, one that could bring renewed violence to the region. If Trump turns around and does not build the embassy, there will be a big shift away from war.

So it is easy to see how the Yod represents an important military turning point for the USA.

There are important new beginnings happening one way or another soon after the Yod and New Moon in Aries.

And this is true for your own life too, most especially if you have natal planets in late Aries. If so these new beginning will be very important ones for you.

Yet for everyone, we are at a point of “ready or not here we come”, as used to be yelled during childhood “hide and seek” games, signifying when there was no more time to try to find a place to hide.

And we will also not be able to hide in the slumber of winter rest anymore  It will be time to wake up at the Aries New Moon, especially so as awakening Uranus is an integral part of that New Moon structure.

And as Mercury will also be going Direct that day, the recent sleep will be beginning to lift from our eyes, in order to soon see what is happening and what direction to move toward.

Just as the aforementioned world events do not come until a month or so after the New Moon in Aries and Mercury Direct, you also can expect there to be some time before real clarity, direction, inspiration and/or important personal events are formed.

Best to see the New Moon/Mercury Direct time as an energetic turning point into the action of your new beginnings.. Be present to feel that energetic shift in the days surrounding the event.

Keep in mind however that this week is the week leading up to the New Moon in Aries and Mercury Direct, not the week it happens.

The light and energies are dimming this week, so you can be more immersed in your own inner consciousness.

The Moon (an important symbol of the Black Panther) will be darkening more and more each day this week.  And when it is totally dark before and during the New Moon in Aries, it is a perfect time to meditate, to make intention, to pray, to use visualization as a tool to co-create with the Universe.

This week shows the Black Panther getting stronger and stronger. It is interesting how the movie Black Panther is so popular in our culture now.

And synchronistically the issue of killing unarmed Black men by police has been recently triggered by the shooting of an unarmed Black man in Sacramento California.

Black Panther also represents the moment between death and life, a true time of transformation.

And the turning point at the New Moon in Aries with Mercury Direct on April 15 is the point between death of the old and birth of the new.

The Age of Aquarius is being born from the ashes of the Age of Pisces.  And no matter which way we turn after the Finger of God points the way, we still will be getting closer to the Age of Aquarius.

The only question is whether the path ahead will be rugged or more graceful.

Till next week,

Leo

The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth and Astrology Forecast April 1-7

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 31, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move into the waning half of the lunar cycle that began on March 17 at the Pisces New Moon.

The Full Moon in Libra earlier today March 31 brings us into the slow dimming of the light of the Moon.

At the same time we are in the middle of Mercury Retrograde, a time to reflect on our lives,  and to rewind into what has happened previously in our lives.

Coupled with the waning half of the lunar cycle it is obviously a time to go inward, to process, and to prepare for action forward after April 15 when there is an Aries New Moon and Mercury going back direct.

This coming week we also have the stop signs of Sun square Saturn and Mercury square Saturn.  The Sun and Mercury are in Aries and Saturn is in Capricorn.

The Sun and Mercury in Aries signify desires to think ahead, to act, to make new beginnings.

Saturn in Capricorn, a sign that makes Saturn stronger, tells us to wait before acting, to stay put so we can do what we need to do, decide what we need to decide.

There is no running away from the hand of time Saturn, who tells us when it is time for something to be done or decided.

Saturn is also gravity which pulls us down into what we cannot escape.

So the Aries planets are in a rush, while Saturn tells us to be patient till it is Time to go forward.

So now with Saturn strong, Mercury Retrograde, and in the waning half of the lunar cycle; we are waiting until the gate opens on April 15.

In most cases it will not be time to rush through the gate, but instead to  just be aware that you are no longer restricted.

Then as Mercury gets back to speed, (a week to 10 days later), and the energies are ready to be put into forward motion (maybe not till May or June), we move forward in a quite strong fashion.

World events will begin to move though the gate, but will not pour in until May or June or even in the summer during another Eclipse Season.

But there will be a sense that nothing can hold you back, and nothing can be held back. There is a “grand opening” and a new day has dawned.

But still this week and next we are wanting to get more clear in our thinking so we can make sound decisions.  We are preparing for what comes next, we are doing what we need to do, we are facing up to what we need to face up to.

It will feel like there is little room to move within, and not much chance to evade, avoid, and escape.

It is almost time now.  Be patient a while longer.  Don’t push the river to flow faster.

In the greater world, we are on the cusp of great change.  Everything is  being set up now for what is coming soon.

And our individual lives are a microcosm for what is happening in the world macrocosm.

We are in the process of getting more clear, of choosing direction, of knowing what we want and need.

With the Aries influence now it may be quite difficult for some to not want to push through the gate and get going.

That would likely be a big mistake. Even if you feel you have gotten more clear of what needs to be done, or what direction you need to take, wait to act on in till after the New Moon in Aries on April 15.

And that New Moon in Aries will be conjunct liberator and awakener Uranus.  You may feel blocked or stuck now, but soon you will taken outside whatever box you may feel you are locked inside of.

And in the greater world, right before the New Moon in Aries and Mercury Direct on April 15, on April 14 Jupiter is sextile Pluto forming a Yod or “Finger of God” configuration with the USA natal Mars.

This means there are turning points in military and police affairs.  Look at the turmoil and violence already erupting in Gaza of the Palestinian territories.  And in mid May the USA moves its embassy to Jerusalem, further incensing Arabs and Muslims:turning point.

And the summit between North Korea and the USA is scheduled for May also: turning point

And in domestic affairs, gun debates (very Mars) after the Parkland Florida mass murder keep getting stronger.  It is time to deal with this issue in a way that will help solve the problem.

And in Sacramento the police are being fingered by many as perpetrators killing an unarmed African American again.  This issue is coming to a head now in the USA.

And of course the revelations of sexual abuse of power are still very important.

These are all quite arguably USA Mars issues that are all ripe for dramatic change.

So the “Finger of God” aspect encompassing the USA natal Mars is bringing important turning points for all these issues.  The USA is at a crossroads with military/police/power/gun issues.

Will we turn toward more peaceful and sane ways, and listen to the voices we have previously silenced, or will we choose to get even more dominating and bullying?

These are truly the times we have been waiting for, times to speak up and create change no matter how difficult it may seem.

The Age of Aquarius is on our doorstep and is waiting for us to help transform this world.

It is our world, not a world to be dominated by power abusers, the greedy, and the privileged.

We can change this world if we turn to love not fear, if we turn to truth not lies. Things change from the inside out.

Christ is said to have stated that “the meek shall inherit the Earth”. I believe that means that those who are humble and peaceful and kind are the hope for this Earth and world.

Till next week,

Leo

The Fool and Astrology Forecast March 25-31

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Remember Y2K?  Remember the Mayan Calendar date in December 2012?  And there were many other times that it was predicted we were moving into some transition into End Times or a New World?

Look around you now.  Can you not sense that the true time of transition is Now?

Today as I write there are many people all over the USA and world who are standing up and declaring it is  time now to make tighter gun laws that will make our lives saner and safer.  March for Our Lives will change how we operate in our world, as is also true for the Me Too movement.

And it has taken horrible incidents to wake us up to the need for these changes.

So look around you now, out at the world.  The Stock Market is tanking as we predicted.  This is only the beginning, as we are in the process of transforming the economic system that has been running our world. The new system will be more equitable and will lessen the disparity between grotesquely wealthy and tragically poor. The values that Bernie Sanders represents are needed to assist this economic transformation.

And the other half of the Military/Economic Complex that President Eisenhower warned us about (the military), is also on the verge of huge shakeups.

Trump has brought in hawkish men into his administration, men who will be in important positions in regard to foreign affairs. Pompeo is now Secretary of State, and Bolton is now the National Security Counsel leader.

They will greatly influence the North Korea, Iran, Russia, China, and Syria situations.  You can expect wars unless something miraculous happens. A Trump drastic change of heart and mind; the end of the Trump presidency; or extraterrestrial intervention would qualify for such miracles.

If these wars do erupt, they will make us feel more deeply the horrible dangers we have put ourselves in.  And like Me Too and March for Our Lives we will be standing up in protest all over the world against the abuse of power that nuclear weapons are reflective of.

As a result, power in the world will move toward being more evenly spread; and nuclear weapons will  need to be wiped off the face of this world.

Yes now is the time we have been waiting for, and we are the ones we have been waiting for!

We need to stand up like these young people from Parkland Florida have been standing up! Civil Disobedience is the way forward into the Age of Aquarius.

And after April 15, events will begin to pour through the opened Portal, as at the same time more light and love will be pouring through.

That also means we will be even more pushed to work with our blocks, our old patterns, our traumas, our belief systems, our tired old ego stories, our identification with being   victims, and of course all the programming from the culture that has sought to make us all sheep.

As we clear these blockages, we clear the way for the Great Awakening, for the Truth and Love that are the foundation for our new world.

This week we are just recently moved into Mercury Retrograde.  It is a time to process more deeply, to fix what needs to be fixed and heal what needs to be healed. It is time to  reflect on the past so we can put it behind us.

People from our past may come to us in dreams, vivid memories or even in person.  This comes to us so we can put the past into perspective, learn what needs to be learned so we can lessen the load of our baggage moving forward.

We are clearly in a New Chapter of life, collectively and personally.  And the portal opening after April 15 will accelerate our transition through this New Chapter.

The “old normal” wants to be released, and you may not find a “new normal” for awhile.

So now can feel rather insecure at times, as what we considered normal is being left behind. But this also means that creative energies are more alive than usual, which is good for new ideas and creating new ways to be.

Besides Mercury being Retrograde this week, we also are moved into the second quarter of the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the Pisces New Moon on March 17. Plus 4 planets are in action oriented, take charge Aries.

So while energies are intensifying and sometimes feel like they are pushing us forward, remember we are at the same time put on “Pause” with Mercury Retrograde.

Do not be impulsive now.  Let this time period play out. Look before you jump.  The Fool Card need not be played now,  though a week from Sunday is April Fool’s Day on Easter Sunday.

Keep in mind that Mercury is a trickster, especially when in Retrograde.  So be alert to your mind playing tricks on you now.

The day before April Fool’s Day is a Full Moon in Libra on Saturday March 31 at 8:37 AM EDT.

That means the Sun is in Aries directly opposite the Full Moon in Libra.

Me first or us together; conflict or peace; action or deliberation, letting it all out or being conscious of social norms are potential themes for this Full Moon.

And remember that a Full Moon and Mercury Retrograde together can make things rather foggy and unclear.

Do not make any important decisions or drastically change directions from what you had previously chosen.

And during Mercury Retrograde we often question what we are doing, where we are going, or what have previously decided.  Wait for a week or more after Mercury goes back Direct before making the decision or changing directions.

And sometimes electronics can go haywire and communication can be confused.  Pay closer attention than usual to what has been written and what has been said.

Be very careful not jumping to conclusions with texts. Make sure the other person understands what you meant in your texting.

Start getting clear about the values and priorities that are important to you as we move into this New Chapter of our lives.  Those values are the foundation of your new world.

There is nothing to be afraid of now if you believe Love, Truth, and higher meaning are the pillars of this New World. Your view on life will then usually be of a glass half full.

If you instead see all as meaningless, random, and fear filled, then the glass of your life will end up looking half empty.

Sure things are looking scary sometimes out in the world, but know the movement overall is about death of the old world and birth of a new one, the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Stand Up and Astrology Forecast March 11-17

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 10, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Most of this week has us in the last quarter of the lunar cycle.   That is until The New Moon in Pisces on Saturday March 17 at 9:12 AM EDT.

Yes for most we will be on Daylight Savings Time starting this Sunday the 18th.  So in a way we get mixed messages.   We get more waking light minutes of the day, while still in the dark of Winter and while moving through the last and darkening phase of the Moon.

Spring will begin next week on March 20th, but then will be closely followed by Mercury going Retrograde on March 22.

There is so much swirling in the world around us now, and much of it brings uncertainty and has us moving into unknown territory.

Trump and Kim Jong Un of North Korea seem to have agreed on a personal meeting that will apparently concentrate on North Korea denuclearizing.  With Mercury going Retrograde soon, there will likely be many difficulties on the path toward a meeting and denuclearizing.

Between now and April 15 at the Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus, Mercury going back Direct, and a Yod Finger of God aspect with the USA natal Mars, much will be shifting and changeable. 

That Finger of God to the USA natal Mars will be a major turning point for the USA military, the police, and gun laws.

North Korea will either look like a major conflict is on the way, or instead it will be more certainly moving toward a peaceful solution.  The meeting between the two leaders is intended to be by May.

And the USA is moving its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem also in May.  This could be cause for much anger in the Arab and Muslim world.

So you can see how the April 15 portal opening that includes the Yod to the USA Mars, may play out with North Korea and Israel/Palestine.

Keep in mind also that Donald Trump was born on a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius.  That new moon has the Sun at 22+ degrees Gemini and his Moon at 21+ degrees of Sagittarius. The USA natal Mars is at 21+ degrees of Gemini, so you can see that what is coming will powerfully affect both the USA and Donald Trump.

A few days later on the 18th, Saturn goes Retrograde and its gravitational certainty will be circulating strongly in our collective energy field. The feeling of fate is in the air then

Make no mistake about it, mid April is a major turning point for this country and world.

That does not mean big events will necessarily explode on that day, but it does mean the portal will open for major events coming soon afterward.

The stock market and economy also deserve attention now and after the portal opens.

Trump’s presidency also is being threatened now, as the Russia investigation keeps picking up steam. After the 15th events will accelerate even more.

Remember however, that this coming week of March 11- 17 will bring energies that are moving inward and yin-ward, downward and for finishing up and processing.

So many personal lives are now up in the air, waiting for coming changes or uncertain what to do or what direction to take.

And certainty will be even more elusive as we get into Mercury Retrograde soon.

So do your best now to be patient and wait. Otherwise you will get anxious and stressed, or depressed.  Sometimes we must wait for clarity and direction to appear, as linear bottom line answers do not easily form.

Yet there is much to be gained in the process of waiting.  Our souls can be very enriched while processing our thoughts and feelings, while meeting up against our hopes and fears, while learning more about ourselves and others.

In the greater world, so much has shifted in the last couple of years or so.    The paradigm the world has known is obviously shifting, even with the difficulties and disappointments we are now experiencing.

We are also being reminded of what is wrong with our world. Why has fame and fortune become the American Dream?  Even in many so-called liberal circles, wealth and notoriety, pedigree and privilege are such a high priority to gain.

Where have the values of our “better angels” gone?  Where has our empathy and compassion gone? How about kindness, integrity, truth, honesty, dignity, respect, and heart centered love?

Why does it seem that money, power, and privilege have become culturally more important than those values?

What kind of world are we delivering to our kids and grandkids?

I heard one young man who survived the Florida school massacre say to Bill Maher on his show:  Paraphrased he passionately said that previous generations have f’d up our world and so this new generation will have to fix it.

And are we setting an example for them? How many have given up their more idealistic  values from their youth because the “real” world has disillusioned and disappointed them, so they decided to play the game instead of keeping the integrity of their better values? And in the process, what has happened to their souls.

For those who have done that, you can work to bring those values back now so we can fight with these kids for a New Paradigm for living with each other and or Earth home.

And following the rules is not the same as holding better values.  Inner values reflect what your mind, heart, and soul know to be true, known to be what brings us together with respect and love.

It is time for each of us to speak up for what we know is right, as has begun to happen with women who are speaking up like never  before, and like how young people are beginning to speak up about guns, etc.

Yet it is time for all of us to stand up and speak our truth.  Keeping quiet is the same as agreeing.  It enables the bad behavior and bad attitudes.

And in your personal life too, you do not need to keep quiet about what is bothering you.  You can stand up and speak your truth.

The condition of your life is your responsibility.  You are not a helpless victim.

The condition of our world is our collective responsibility. We are not victims.

We the people are the ones who will transform the world into the Age of Aquarius.

Don’t concentrate on those who seem to not be redeemable and who will not change.

Focus on attracting those who want to bring the Age of Aquarius values to the real world- as you do.

It is a waste of time trying to convince others to believe.

Be confident in what you believe, and be an example for others to follow. Who you are speaks volumes.

Till next week

Leo

Follow the Yellow Brick Road and Astrology Forecast March 4-10

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 3, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We pretty much leave Eclipse Season this coming week.  And Jupiter switches from Direct to Retrograde late Thursday March 8, putting an end to the rare event of All Planets being Direct, which has been happening since the first of this current year.

And later this week, on Friday March 9, we begin the last quarter of a lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15. A new lunar cycle begins at the Pisces New Moon on March 17.

Where are we both collectively and in our personal lives now?

We will now be able to process all the changes, events, emotions, thoughts, etc. that have been swirling in our lives this Eclipse Season.

Then after Mercury goes Retrograde on March 22, we will have even more time and inclination to reflect, ponder, analyze, and go deeper into our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls.

Then after April 15, the dogs are released through the Portal that will be opened then. There will be then a New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus, Mercury going Direct, and a Yod Finger of God encompassing the USA natal Mars.

This will be a time of important of new starts, and important world and personal events that will mostly be understood in the context of the events of the last two Eclipse Seasons.

Much has happened in our personal and collective lives since last July 2017.  Much has happened more specifically since this last January 2018, when Winter Eclipse Season 2018 began.

Remember also that on Winter Solstice 2017, Saturn went into its favorite sign Capricorn  on Winter Solstice day, making a strong conjunction with the Sun in Capricorn. This gave us a Winter ’17/’18 signature.

That signature told us how serious and down turning winter would be, and how gravity (ruled by Saturn and Capricorn) would bring a metaphorically quite strong down-pull or down-fall.

In large part because of that knowledge I predicted a severe downward turn of the then “flying high mania”  Stock Market.

And it was so.

And this is only the beginning of the downturn, which will become a crash, and then an important transformation of the USA and world economies.

The future holds a much more Bernie Sanders kind of economy, and a severely transformed world into Diversity within Unity for an Age of Aquarius.

In the meantime the process will not be pretty.  There is a USA downfall that we are experiencing led by the Trump administration, very likely coming major wars in the world, and a continued internal USA civil and culture war.

This chaos will bring many governments to try to overly control their citizens, while said chaos will also bring much creative energy to stand up to the controls and to what has been a largely corrupt and unfair old world structure. This “standing up” is already in gear.

Movement to overthrow this current USA administration through impeachment will continue to grow.

All this turmoil is a clearing for the Age of Aquarius,  coming on the heels of the chaos.

I promise videos and podcasts soon (before April 15), and some will be with David Sanipass as we did last year.

This week we experience Jupiter going Retrograde on Thursday and the 4th quarter of the current lunar cycle beginning on Friday.  And before all that both Mercury and Venus will enter Aries on Tuesday the 6th of March (my birthday).

Venus and Mercury leave flowing and sensitive Pisces to be in straight forward, direct, and assertive Aries for awhile.

Both Venus and Mercury are relational planets, so relationships can expect to be more sometimes brutally honest with one another.

If you have been walking on eggs with someone, not wanting to upset them or the status quo, you will start feeling more motivated to assert your truth with them.

In world affairs the same thing will be happening, as people will stop mincing words and instead be more open about what they want to assert.  Aries challenges and confronts, often with force.

On Thursday when up-lifting and expansive Jupiter is stationary waiting to change directions, there should be a spike in hopeful and joyful feelings.  But that will in many cases be temporary, as Jupiter will then go Retrograde for the next 4 months.

Also as Jupiter is changing directions, some people will be impulsive, saying what they would not normally say or jumping into something without caution.

The last quarter Moon is in Sagittarius on March 9. That means the Sun is in laid back Pisces, being countered by free spirited adventurous Sagittarius.  You could be conflicted between those two quite different ways of being.

We will be in the last quarter till March 17 at the New Moon in Pisces. As usual the last quarter opens us up to process and reflect on what has been and where we are at.

Sometimes energies or events are so accelerated or intense, that we lose ourselves or our perspective.

In this 4th quarter and beyond, through the soon approaching Mercury Retrograde, all the way to  April 15; we have the ability to gather ourselves, to shake off the dust of recent experiences, and to look our lives and selves right in the eye of truth.

If you judge yourself or others too harshly now, however, you will be unaligned and taken off track.   You are human and we make mistakes, and all we can do is apologize if need be, atone (at-one), learn form the mistakes, and promise our selves to do our best to never repeat the same mistakes.

Many of you who regularly read this blog, consider your self on a soul’s journey.  And right now, our souls are in the beginning stages of a world storm, a storm that seeks to shake up the status quo.  It is not an easy time for many now.

I know many of you are quite concerned and sometimes fearful of what is happening to our country and world..

If you look from a bigger picture at our human story over the past hundreds of years, you will see many challenges and forks in the road.  And though we sure messed up a lot, we also are quite resilient and resourceful and creative.  And we have been incredibly loving and caring so much of the time, even if history books do not tell us that.

We have created such works of beauty and artistry, built awesome civilizations, adventurously travelled so far, even to the Moon.  We are the only Earth creatures to do all this.

Yes we have also been so nasty, murderous, self serving, greedy, and hateful.

But we always do seem to somehow grow and evolve in so many ways.

And we are all now so close to one another through mass communication, social media,  mass transportation, world commerce, and all together under the Sun and Moon, and having the same basic human needs.

So now our growing edge is knowing and honoring our connections, not seeing ourselves as all separate and enemies with one another. It is no longer good enough to only know connections based on negotiations, trades, and contrived circumstances.

It is time to know and honor that we are all connected in our hearts and souls naturally, all parts of the same human family.  It is time to know that the Universe has all the dots connected, not random. It is time to know we live a meaningful existence, on a sacred home planet, in a beautiful diverse Universe, all together as One.

Dark and light, male and female, yin and yang- many differences but all connected as One.

Deeply knowing all this will help us to evolve to our next level, all in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Bless the World and Astrology Forecast December 24-30

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving through a turning point now as we have experienced the New Moon in Sagittarius, Winter Solstice conjunct Saturn and Mercury finally going Direct.

And this was an especially difficult Mercury Retrograde for many, with many people reporting difficulties with electronics and technology, as well as challenges with cars.

Did you also experience people or memories coming back into your life?  Did you feel tempted to make big decisions? Did you feel confusion or difficulty in your thinking? Were you challenged in understanding what others communicated to you, or did others have difficulty understanding you?  Did you question what you had previously decided or what directions to take in your life?

Well now clarity will begin to form, and if you wait another week or so, you can be more sure that what you are thinking or deciding is correct.

This is a challenging time to be on the Earth in America.  We have never experienced a President like Trump.  Many are very worried about the direction the USA is taking and what its future will bring.

Trump is part of the downfall of an Empire and Superpower. It is meant to fall as did the other Superpower, the Soviet Union, in the 1990’s.

This is all a clearing of an old paradigm from an old Age.  Abuse of Power is its name, and the scandals of sexual power abuse are out in the open here in the United States.

This was part of an old cultural paradigm for relationships between men and women.  This is dying too.

Speaking of abuse of power,  are you aware of what  happened at the UN this last week?

The USA and Trump declared Jerusalem to be the Capital of Israel, effectively denying the Palestinians and Islamic World of their part of Jerusalem, as previously defined by UN resolutions.

UN members last week put out a new resolution condemning Trump’s declaration and reiterating their allegiance to East Jerusalem being the Capital of the Palestinians.

Nikki Haley, diplomatic head of the USA for the UN, threatened to remember who would vote against them in this new resolution.  She made it obvious that the USA would consider holding back money from those countries.

Nevertheless, a vast majority of nations still condemned the USA declaration of Jerusalem as only the possession of Israel, with an overwhelming vote against that USA declaration.

It is so important now for each of us to distinguish between healthy empowerment and abuse of power.

Holding power over others to take what you want from them is abuse of power.  Using power to destroy others is abuse of power.

Empowering yourself in order to stand up for yourself or stand up for what you believe in is healthy power. And that is important for us to be able to move into a new paradigm and Age of Aquarius.

In using power wisely and appropriately, we are not putting ourselves above others, but we are not putting ourselves below others either.

The Diversity within Unity paradigm needs for power to be distributed amongst people or nations.  In that regard we are moving toward a Multi Polar global community of nations, without superpowers or dominating Empires.

Equality, and inalienable rights to self determination preclude any nation from demanding how another nation lives, unless that nation directly injures other nations.

Our capitalistic democracy should not be forced on any other culture or nation. And every nation has a right to defend itself, especially against a country (USA) that has more weapons of mass destruction than anyone else and is the only one to have used them, killing thousands of other humans in Japan to end World War II.

We need to treat other countries as equals, and learn to listen and have dialogue with them.   Threatening to destroy them creates an atmosphere that promises violence and destruction.  And of course they in turn will threaten to destroy us. Old Paradigm is what needs to be destroyed.

As we move closer to 2018 this coming week, we begin to take in the reality of Saturn moving into Capricorn at the Winter Solstice.

Saturn in Capricorn conjunct the Winter Solstice Sun happened last in 1644, so it is a rare occurrence.

And it is part of the signature of the winter season we have now entered. Collectively we face events this winter that will have a great influence on the direction of our world and human family.  Saturn is the hand of time, gravity,  strict rules, clear definitions, endings, commitments, and “fated” events.

And also this winter we will experience 2 eclipses: A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on January 31, and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.

That Solar Eclipse will be directly opposite the powerful Total Solar Eclipse from August 2017.

What was begun then will be taken to the next level this winter 2018 Eclipse Season.

This week Venus moves out of Sagittarius and conjuncts that Saturn in Capricorn on Monday Christmas Day.

We may experience in our relationships a deeper sense of reality or acceptance of what we cannot deny anymore. This could have an effect on family situations this holiday.

Also on Christmas Day the Moon will be in Pisces, a good sign to be able to feel Christ consciousness, an ability for empathy and compassion for others.

We also continue this week to be in the waxing half of the lunar cycle that began at the Sagittarius New Moon last week.

The waning last half begins on New Year’s Day January 1, at the Full Moon in Cancer, to be followed the next day by Uranus turning Direct.  We of course will talk more about that next week.

I will also do some forecasting about 2018 in next week’s blog. Then early in the new year I will put out a podcast and a video Forecast for 2018.

For those of you who resonate with the holidays, I hope they are meaningful and full of love.  And for those of you who do not, I also hope these days are meaningful and full of love.

Till next week,

Leo

Half Full or Half Empty and Astrology Forecast December 17-23

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 16, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The man-made border between years, this transition time between 2017 and 2018, is fast approaching.

I say man-made because nature was not “consulted” in picking January 1 as the beginning of a new year.

In some other countries the first day of spring is considered the beginning of the new year. And of course Spring does feel like new vital energies erupting, like a new beginning.  And the sign that begins every spring is Aries, an obvious generator of new starts.

I think that says much about our culture and its lack of respect for nature, for natural cycles and seasons.

We all too often lead our lives based on what we are expected to do, what we should do, what we desire to do, what the rules or conventional culture “tells” us to do.

In contrast, Astrology is part of nature, of natural cycles and seasons, part of the grand movements of our solar system and Universe.

And this week, which will lead to the holiday season, shows us a turning of tides, a shifting of natural energies.

We are awakened from our collective nap at the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 18 at 1:30 AM EST.

Then on December 21 we enter Winter Solstice at 11:28 AM EST. That same day, there is a very rare occasion- Saturn will be conjunct that Winter Solstice point.

Then on December 22, the much awaited Direct movement of Mercury occurs at 8:51 PM EST.

During Mercury Retrograde many shifted their thinking or questioned their previous decisions and chosen directions.

Now after Mercury goes back Direct, and giving it a week or so to go back to normal speed, you will be able to assess if that change of mind sticks or if you need to go back to what was originally chosen.

For some, people and/or memories floated back into their consciousness or life, giving  another perspective on issues in our life.

After Mercury goes back Direct, the fog will begin to lift, clarity will begin to appear.

However, around the day that Mercury actually goes back Direct, it can be especially confusing or disorienting. Let the process play out before jumping to conclusions.

Mercury going Direct will feel like new beginnings, but so will the New Moon in Sagittarius.

The New Moon in Sagittarius on the 17th/18th is a fiery new moon.  Sagittarius is fire that moves where it is inspired to go.  People with a strong Sagittarius influence are free spirits , wanting to follow their intuition, their inspiration, their sense of adventure.

Their challenge is to not leap before they look, to not be too impulsive, to not be so cock sure their opinion is always right.

As we all experience the New Moon in Sagittarius, we will begin to feel joy and upliftment.

Yet to counter that upward spiral of spirit, we are still experiencing the downward spiral of darker and darker days on the way to Winter Solstice on the 21st.

So we may feel a bit torn between hope and optimism one minute, then sadness or negativity later.

Our glass of life is in the process of a changing perspective from half empty to half full.

As we get closer to the Winter Solstice on the 21st, the day is getting darker and darker.  Heavy Saturn goes into its “home” sign of Capricorn on the 19th, just two days before the Winter Solstice Sun in Capricorn on the 21st.

Then later that same day, Saturn in Capricorn conjuncts the Winter Solstice Sun in Capricorn.

That may bring some sadness, some feelings of depression, a negative outlook on life.

But if you stay present for the turn toward the light at 11:28 AM EST on the 21st, you may feel the subtle shift energetically toward more light  minutes of the day.  And the light keeps growing until Spring Equinox when light and dark become equal.

So as the light comes back, the Sun does not open to light as easily as it normally does on Winter Solstice. That is because of Saturn in Capricorn making conjunction with the Winter Solstice Sun.

Saturn stops the full expression of whatever it touches. It is gravity. It is the hand of time. It is rules and responsibilities.

We are still in the reach of the New Moon in Sagittarius, however, so we may be in a loop between manic and depressed, so to speak

Please do not let the situations in the world get you down or feeling hopeless.   Everything is in meaningful order.

We are undoubtedly feeling the cracking open of the concrete structure of the Military/Industrial complex.

Change is wanting to pour in through those cracks which are getting bigger and more plentiful all the time.

This splitting apart is causing huge divisions between cultures, religions, nations, genders, etc.

In America it is being felt as a big split between the left culture and the right culture. There is little thread between them to keep them together.

The yin/yang symbol of wholeness is splitting in two within the old Paradigm.

Get out of the Old Paradigm and its wars. Do not be so quick to choose sides.  In the New Paradigm all is connected, diverse but connected. There is no demonizing of those who are different than us.

There is a much stronger rope between the differences. The yin/yang symbol is whole. There is still black and white, male and female, yin and yang. But those opposites are part of a wholeness of Unity.

This is the Age of Aquarius with its Diversity within Unity.

So don’t see the good guys or girls versus the bad guys or girls. The enemy is not North Korea or Iran or China or Muslims.  The enemy is not white men or conservatives or Christians or people from red states, or on the contrary liberals or African Americans or LGBTQ peoples.

Do not be a part of the cracking concrete of the Old Paradigm of US Versus Them.

Yes stand up for what you believe is right, but don’t be part of a war against those who think differently.

Trust that everything is happening for a reason, that an old world is transitioning into a New World, the Age of Aquarius.

You don’t have to kill the members of the Old World, evolution happens naturally.

Quit thinking Trump all the time like the media does. Trump loves that much attention.  He is not the enemy.  What he represents is what we need to release on a very deep level of our collective consciousness

The MeToo revolution is so needed in our world now, but if it turns to men versus women it loses its way.

There is an old paradigm that believes that those in power and privilege can do what they want and can abuse that power and take whatever they want.

Men and women have both bought into that belief system. Are men predators and women prey?  Are men the perpetrators and women the victims?

What needs to be transformed is believing that is true. And so many men and women deeply believe that as they have been conditioned to believe.

We may have developed that as part of an old paradigm, but in nature it is not true, inherently it is not true.

But if you buy into it, it becomes true for you.

Mercury goes Direct on the 22nd at 8:51 PM EST. Feel the shift and feel the relief. It has been a very difficult Mercury Retrograde this time for many.

As it ends feel the gears in your mind beginning to shift back.   It is a good time to gather our senses, to bring our selves to sanity in this often insane world, and to make our better values our highest priority.

Till next week,

Leo
