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

Being Sane at Times of Change and Astrology Forecast March 20-26

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 19, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

There is a plethora of important planetary movements this week.

This week could bring a turning point in one’s life, or a crossroads for some issue.

Most importantly there is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra Wednesday the 23rd at 8:01 AM EDT. 

That same day Jupiter will square Saturn, as Saturn is slowing down as it changes directions to Retrogarde on March 25.  That makes Saturn especially strong.

As such there is a grounded pull downward, a focus toward “getting down to business”,  taking responsibility, organizing or disciplining oneself. The value of logic increases.

There could also be an important decision that needs to be made or a commitment to something important.

There may also be a feeling of fate, that something was meant to be.

The Lunar Eclipse will tend to shake things up out of same-old, same-old status quo, overly comfortable ways of living one’s life.   It is getting to be time to move on regardless if things have been figured out or not.

Since this is a Full Moon in Aries/Libra, there will be a focus on relationship.  That focus will include looking to find a balance between taking care of one’s own needs on the one hand; and taking care of the other person and the relationship on the other hand.

Have we previously focused too much on ourselves- or instead have we been overly accommmodating of the other person in relationship?

If you have been more caretaker than taking care of your own needs, then it is time to find a balance and take care of your self more.

If instead you have been overly focused on your self and not considering enough the other person, then it is time to listen to your friend or mate more.

Aries is about being true to oneself, which is a natural way to be.   Why would we not want to be true to our own authenticity and needs.

Libra is about listening and honoring someone else and the relationship.  It takes an attitude like that to keep a relationship healthy.

So where is the balance found?  Does one of you take care of themselves while the other person tends to the relationship?

It is time to work this out in different, more healthy ways

And Saturn helps to ground everything and to help you focus on committing to try hard to make it all work.

With Jupiter square a focal Saturn this week, it is no time to expand or fly high into anything.  Saturn is a sobering influence, so to speak, and it prevents one from being flighty or airy-fairy.

It is a good week to be real about whatever we think, say or do.

Relationships of all kinds are in the spotlight this week, so relationship between countries or world leaders could be strained and made to be quite real this week.

Saturn should stop anything from getting too out of control this week. Eclipses bring powerful and intense energies of change our way, energies that cause breakdowns of old ways and breakthroughs into new ways of thinking or being.

And that will be true with this week’s Eclipse too, but Saturn should keep you more  focused than at the last eclipse in Pisces.

In the greater world, issues that were previously unresolved or fuzzy or unknown will get clearer and known.

The presidential primaries should bring a more clear idea of who has won or lost.  Also fate may step in with serious repercussions, like if the email scandal for Clinton brings indictments; or if Trump or someone else has some scandal to deal with.

Communication will also be an important issue this week, as Mercury makes stromg aspects to the Sun and Mars on the 23rd and 24th.

Sun conjunct Mercury in Aries suggests we speak openly, with frankness, straight forward and direct.

But if too direct, without consideration for how a person will receive the information, there could be hurt feelings and defensiveness.

So say your piece but be sensitive to the people you are relating to.

This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse being in Aries/Libra also suggests a question of going to battle or making peace.  In Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Iran, Iraq, and North and South Korea this war or peace Eclipse could play out.

In your own life, is it right to be confrontative or better to keep quiet for the sake of having peace.

Or better yet is there a way to state your truth with a velvet glove of soft words?

This week could clear the way so you can soon find direction, clarity, and answers.  But most importantly, this week is a turning point.

It will tend to help us from going over the same mental tapes over and over again without resolution.

As I believe Einstein said- paraphrased,”If you do things the same way over and over again always looking but never finding better results, you are insane”.

It is time to stop the knee jerk habit of repeating the same words or phrases or questions over and over again. We are having the same conversations but nothing ever changes.

If we truly want different more healthy results we need to have the courage to think and act outside the old boxes.  Take chances and get out of old patterns that are ready to die at this Lunar Eclipse New Moon.

There is a feeling of security or stability that keeps us doing the old familiiar ways over and over again.

Now is the opportunity to change while good old Saturn keeps things grounded and sane.

The world is changing so fast now, and we cannot keep alive old rotted patterns except to our detriment.   As the old world keeps trying to keep the old ways, it decays and falls apart-  And so do we, if in our personal lives we try to keep the old and tired ways alive on “life support systems”.

Till next week,

Leo
