Eclipse Season, Mars Retrograde and Astrology Forecast June 24-30

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week as we move into Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

On Thursday June 28 there is a Full Moon in Capricorn closely conjunct Saturn at 12:53 AM EDT.

The first actual eclipse (first of 3 this season) will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12.  It will be very closely in opposition to Pluto.

The June 28 Full Moon in Capricorn conjunct Saturn opens up Eclipse Season with a strong pull to having limits, strong definition, strict rules, and firm boundaries.

Since in this Full Moon, the Sun is in Cancer directly opposite the Moon conjunct Saturn, we can expect Cancer permissiveness, unconditional attitudes, empathy, and openness to be a counter force to the Moon/Saturn strictness.

This will be a theme to reckon with during Eclipse Season- both personally and globally. Already we can see how nations are wrestling with open or closed boundaries for immigrants. This is especially so in America and Europe.

And in other places like Ukraine and East Asia, there are boundary disputes for who claims what land for their country.  And in North and South Korea, there is hope by many for the boundary between them to be erased.

These issues will be “more in our faces” during this Eclipse Season, starting this week.

In personal lives you may be pushed to decide even more than usual, when to “put your foot down” to stop others or to protect yourself or to be clear what you take and what you will not take from others.  Your boundaries will be pushed by others.

Politically speaking, liberal and conservative viewpoints will be showing up clearly this week and during Eclipse Season. Capricorn/Saturn is symbolically conservative and Cancer is more symbolically liberal. That does not mean all Cancers are liberal and all Capricorns are conservative.

Interestingly, in the USA natal chart from July 4 1776, the USA has its Sun in Cancer in conflicting square to its Saturn in Libra. This is representative of the constant war between liberal and conservative viewpoints in America. Squares tend to show that each side of the square is strongly opposed without much empathy for the other position.

This is so true of American politics, most especially now, as there is an obvious culture war going on.

And in this Summer Eclipse Season, beginning this week, we will experience that battle building in intensity. Calls for impeachment will get stronger.

Also this week, besides the Eclipse Season initiation with the Full Moon in Capricorn on the 28th,  there is the changing of direction of Mars from Direct to Retrograde.

Mars goes Retrograde approximately every two years for around 2 months each time.  This Mars Retrograde period will last from June 26 to August 27- at which time it will go back Direct.

In personal lives there will be a tendency with Mars Retrograde to give pause so one can better know what one wants and desires.  Mars Retrograde also shows us the condition of our personal will and to the issue of standing up for ourselves, and what we believe in.

It will also bring up issues of being true to our authentic Self or of compromising that truth in order to accommodate what others want from us.

Mars Retrograde also brings up a review of anger issues and competitive instincts.  It brings out alpha personality more strongly too, as well as issues of power and force.

Mars Retrograde will also bring up questions of what direction we want to move toward, and it may very well have us question the direction we have previously chosen.

On the global scene, there will be a questioning of issues of conflict or war. Previous stances of peace may be questioned. Previous stances of war may be questioned.

As this Mars Retrograde period will coincide with Eclipse Season, issues with North Korea and most especially the Middle East will be in the spotlight and heating up.

Of course we all know this is a critical time for questioning the state of our country and world.  Old paradigms and institutions, old programmed beliefs and ways of being are breaking down in order to allow new brighter, more loving, truth telling energies to pour into our consciousness and lives.

Eclipse Seasons always bring both breakdowns and breakthroughs. The only thing assured is that status quo familiarity is not safe during Eclipse Seasons.

Some parts of your life, especially with Mars Retrograde added to this Eclipse Season, will be questioned and/or challenged.

If you have planets closely connected to the planetary positions of the Eclipses, you will be more affected than others.

Keep in mind and heart the knowledge that all these shakeups or changes are aligned with your deeper soul, nature, and the Universe. Old beliefs, patterns, people, etc. who do not fit with your personal evolution and transformation are the ones that are threatened.

All is happening meaningfully and with the true needs of your soul.  Sometimes we get too set in our ways, and these Eclipses assist us in moving out of our being stuck, trapped, bored, clingy, and stopped from growing.

Often we have choice to not move with where the winds are blowing us to go, but we then are stunted in our growing and transforming, and something in our souls and spirits starts to die.

Also this week, besides the Full Moon in Capricorn and Mars going Retrograde, we also encounter Mercury moving out of Cancer and into Leo on June 28/29.

Mercury is our mind, our thinking, and our ability to communicate. When in Cancer feeling and thinking tend to merge and a more holistic perception and viewpoint emerge in our minds and ways of communicating.

And when Mercury is in Leo, there is more “light” in our thinking, and the mind tends to be creative and inspired. We also communicate more creatively and spontaneously.

Mercury will stay in Leo much longer than usual, until August 29, much more than its usual one month in a sign.

So begin the ride of Eclipse Season this week, even though the greatest intensity will likely not occur till closer to the first actual Eclipse on July 12.  

We will of course get deeper into the Eclipses as the Season continues. You can get some perspective on this Eclipse Season with the video I made earlier this month. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QkSNDn0QCg&feature=youtu.be

Till next week,

Leo

Resting Up and Astrology Forecast July 2-8.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 1, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have entered the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle that began at the Cancer New Moon on June 23.  So thus we are waxing our way up to the Full Moon in Capricorn on July 7/8.

So this week we are only 3 weeks away from the intial winds of Eclipse Season. Then the 1st eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon will be on August 7.  The 2nd eclipse, a most powerful Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo will be on August 21.

These Eclipse Seasons usually happen twice a year, with 2 eclipses in each season.

Eclipse Seasons begin two weeks or so before the first eclipse in a season, and extend to at least two weeks after the last eclipse in a season. These seasons are almost always big turning points in world and personal affairs.

The last Eclipse season was from January 27- March 27 2017.

The Eclipse Seasons often have breakdowns of old habits, patterns, beliefs, and sometimes even breakdowns in relationships, jobs, families, and home lives.

But just as frequently there are usually breakthroughs into awakened thoughts and new ways of living, better relationships, jobs and home lives.

Change is quite frequent during Eclipse Seasons, and much of that change can become transformational, and can open one up to healing of old wounds and traumas.

Keeping status quo is difficult during an Eclipse Season, and usually some part of one’s life will show big movement and change, even if it is one’s belief systems or ways of perceiving one’s life.

Often the issues that are ripe for change and transformation show up before the Eclipse Season, but the intensity of need for their transformation heats up appreciably during the Season, and especially so close to the actual Eclipse event.

If a country or person has any of their personal natal planets in close aspect to the sign and degree of the Eclipse, then that country or person will be most challenged with issues that require one’s close attention.

For instance the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21 will be at almost 29 degreees of Leo.  Donald Trump’s natal Ascendent is at 29 + degrees of Leo and his Mars is at almost 27 degrees of Leo.

So his rising sign, which signifies how he interacts with his world, and his Mars, which signifies how he asserts, fights, and defends himself, are in self involved Leo.

Leo expresses openly and creatively, but when out of balance expresses in a totally self centered way, which if taken to the limit becomes narcissism.

That Leo part of his disposition will be triggered around the eclipse, and since specifically his Mars in Leo will be triggered, he will be vociferously fighting or defending himself (even more than usua), and not unlikely will be using that aggression as Commander in Chief of the United States military.

If your own natal planets will be triggered, you too will have parts of your psyche and life activated and put in the spotlight for change and transformation.

If you have planets from 26 degrees Leo to 1 degree of Virgo you will be greatly affected by that Total Solar Eclipse on August 21.   If you have planets from 26 degrees of Aquarius to 1 degree of Pisces you will be at least substantially affected.

If you have planets from 26 degrees of Taurus to 1 degree of Gemini or 26 degrees of Scorpio to 1 degree of Sagittarius you will be at least somewhat affected.

And of course all of us will be affected by the eclipses as citizens of the world, and most especially the USA where this Total Eclipse will be seen.

World events that are warm now will be much hotter during the actual Eclipse Season, which will begin around the Leo New Moon on July 23.

For now find what nurtures you and helps you to feel safe and loved.  Gather yourself and solidify what is important to you.

It is Sun in Cancer time of year when nature is abundant and the needs for nurturance and unconditional love are at their highest.   What signifies home and family to you needs to be experienced before Eclipse Season begins.

The most vulnerable in our world will need the most care now: our children, our elderly, our wounded, our innocent animals.

This week begins rather intensely as Mars opposes Pluto on Sunday July 2.  Be careful to not emotionally overreact reacting to situations and people.

Also this week, as the Moon gets brighter and brighter on its way to a full moon, Venus will move from Taurus to Gemini on the 4th of July, and will stay in Gemini until July 31.

As Venus moves out of Taurus and into Gemini, it leaves its priority being for physical comfort and care, and for monetary and relationship security.

Its new priority becomes being social and gaining intellectual stimulation, being light and free spirited, and open to being a social butterfly.

On July 5 Mercury leaves Cancer and enters Leo, where it will stay until July 25.

When in Cancer, Mercury’s mental tendencies are to combine its head with its feelings, and sometimes to be confused between thinking and feeling.

As Mercury, the planet of  thinking and communicating, shifts into Leo,  fun creative thinking and openly sharing of ideas become greater priorities.

And at the end of this week,  there is a Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn on July 8 overnight into July 9 at 12:07 AM EDT.

Nurturance and inner values (Cancer) are needing to be balanced with needs for accomplishment and outer validation of one’s efforts (Capricorn).

Balance is also needed between permissive unconditional allowing attitudes (Cancer), with strict guidelines and rules and clear boundaries (Capricorn).

The actual Full Moon has Pluto conjunct the Moon in Capricorn which increases the emotional intensity and opens things up to transformation through catharsis.

Full Moon have an energetic effect a day or two before full moon, on the date of the full moon and up to two days after.  This Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn can also bring up parental issues and can make clear what iis needed for greater stability in one’s life.

The next full moon will be on August 7, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius.

Time now to nurture and stabilize before the intensity increases in Eclipse Season.

Till next week,

Leo

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

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

The subject is about navigating the planetary changes this year.

Please take a look at the video David Lonebear Sanipass and I created recently- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W2WIRHQ5IQ

If you need any help with your relationship now, I have done couples’ counseling for many years. Do you need to identify and work out old patterns? Do you need to decide whether to stay or go?  I use the astrological model to help in the counseling process. We can use Skype if outside New England. Write me at soulus@aol.com if interested.

Chaos and Order and Astrology Forecast July 10-16

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on July 9, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We let you know that after Mars went Direct important and powerful world events would follow.   And we communicated last week that we could feel something big was coming to the United States soon.

Last week brought both important and powerful events to our world and country.

Two African American men were killed for no apparent reason by police.   Five police officers were gunned down as a result of uncontrolled rage for the other killings by a lone gunman.

Pandora’s box has opened, and we can expect more events to result from these two tragic terrors.

In the bigger picture there is an old age, an old system, an old paradigm, an old world that is dying and in transition into a new paradigm and Age of Aquarius.

Change and transition bring chaos that can eventually be used creatively to create a new world and age. I heard many people speak of love and mutual respect as the solutions for the divisions between police and the African American community.

Astrologically speaking, Saturn is square Neptune this year.  We have in previous writings said that is symbolic of Chaos (Neptune) versus Order (Saturn).

Saturn is police and military; Neptune is transformational waves of change.   Saturn at its worst is martial law and fascism;   Neptune at its worst is mass confusion and anarchy.

It is easy to see Saturn and Neptune playing out their roles in the horrible events this past week.

The world as we know it will now more rapidly transform.  The old ways and patterns of behavior no longer work, are unhealthy and dangerous.

Politically we have two candidates for president that few people trust or have positive images of.

This past week, as an additional important event, Hilary Clinton was severely criticized though not indicted for her email problems.

So many here in the United States are feeling unsafe, confused, angry and losing hope for better days any time soon.

Though it is totally human to be enraged about the continued abuse of African Americans, or so sad and angry for the deaths of the policemen, it is best now to not get involved in “us versus them” or seeing one side or another as enemies to be hated.

Racial discrimination and abuses go back to the beginnings of America, turned into the horrors of slavery, and then the Civil War and eventually Civil Rights Movement in the ’60s and the recent Presidential election of an African American man.

Though there has been obvious progress in racial relations, the current trouble reminds us of the lack of trust that continues between peoples.

Can you imagine how difficult it must be to eventually trust people who have enslaved you and treated you as less than human?

Can you see how long it takes for some people to end their deep seated belief that black people are inferior to them and must be feared?

Evolution takes much time, but it does go more rapidly when on the cusp of changing ages, as we are now and have been since the 60’s.

The racial problems will likely get worse before they get better, but you can know they will evolve into Aquarian Age consciousness.

We may have to live 4 years or more with a deeply flawed President of the USA, but not too long after that we can expect more enlightenment in our leaders and world.

This coming week we stay in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Cancer on July 4.   We are moving forward with what has opened up since that New Moon in emotional Cancer.

Emotions will still be strong, but there will be more hope in our hearts opening up this week as both Venus and Mercury move out of Cancer and into Leo.

Venus in Leo promises more sunshine in our relationships, more desires to have fun. Mercury in Leo promises more new and creative ideas to play with.

Yet it is important to realize that the downside of Leo can be big ego or at its worst narcissism.

It might become important this week to identify your own or others’ ego issues.

So many people I talk to lately speak about how someone they are close to is a narcissist.

If you are an adult and you have drawn a narcissist into your life for a close relationship, then you are a part of that problem.

That narcissist is likely compensating for your own lack of self esteem and you may be enabling their behavior by not holding them totally accountable for their behavior.

Leo at its best is full of self esteem and in its heart, shining the light that comes from self confidence.  Others can bask in that glow.

But at its worst their most positive attributes go to their head- not their heart, and they then develop an ego problem.

Expect strong world events to continue this week, as we are accelerating through the transition between ages.

Do your best to not get too emotionally involved in the dramas with rage or unbridled fear.  If you can find compassion and love in your heart, you are a part of the solution not problem.

That does not mean you are not very upset at injustice, corruption, etc. Remember that even Christ was very upset and angry at the money changers’ focus on material gain.

Till next week,

Leo

Time to start thinking if you want to be involved in the webinars in August. Those of you who have already told me you want to be a part of the webinar series and who have not paid need to let me know if they want to pay through Paypal or personal check. I also soon need your birth information, including time and place of birth.

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday August 6 at 1 PM  EDT.  The series will continue Saturdays August 13 and 20th at 1 PM to finish up the series.   Each class will last approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.
I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world events  will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is to be paid prior to the classes.
 Recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live meeting.
