End of Eclipse Season, Autumn Equinox, and Astrology Forecast September 17-23

This week we come to the end of Eclipse Season, which has been a most powerful time of shifting life tides,  taking us faster forward through a New Life Chapter that is closer than ever to the Age of Aquarius.

Now that the Eclipse Season, which included Mercury Retrograde, is ending at the New Moon in Virgo this week; we are able to gain some perspective and insight into what happened and what may come next.

Many of us have been taken to important turning points in our lives, perhaps even requiring crossroads decisions.

For awhile now we may need to get our bearings after the intensity of the passing Eclipse Season, and the Virgo energies now will help us to analyze what has happened, to bring order to our lives, and to simplify what has been a rather complicated time period.

This is not a time to push forward, instead it is a time to fix up, repair, heal, clean up, and figure out.

That is because there is a New Moon in Virgo on September 19/20- actually at 1:30 AM EDT on the 20th. Mercury and Mars will already be in Virgo at that time, and Venus will have just arrived there too.

Virgo energy gives us greater ability to discern and be discriminating, to skeptically question, to be critical- hopefully in a constructive way.

So you will have the ability to take apart and view more closely the details of what is happening in your life.  Be careful, however, not to let healthy questioning turn into negativity, unfair criticism, and cynicism.  And be careful not to take yourself apart critically.

Virgo can be very perfectionistic and has a tendency to see life’s glass as half empty not half full.

In examining the world after the important events of Eclipse Season, we will have the ability to examine and find order, but must be careful not to be too negative, worrying, or fearful in the process.

We had extreme weather conditions and natural disasters, with an 8.1 Earthquake in Mexico, two very powerful hurricanes to hit the USA, as well as western USA wildfires that were more out of control than usual.

Culture wars picked up speed, starting in Charlottesville with KKK and neo Nazis instigating hatreds and violence.

The Middle East showed signs of change as Islamic State was wiped out of many locales it controlled, though it did perpetrate terrorist attacks at the same time. Syria is apparently more settled now, but  at the same time Israel and Iran are showing themselves closer to confrontation, with Hezbollah and Russia involved also.

But most ominously North Korea has taken center stage in our world with missile and bomb tests that have shaken the USA and much of the world.

Now it has become time to make decision on what can be done in that situation.

Of course many of us know weapons of mass destruction need to be mass destructed for the health of our planet.

But given the current situation, the wise option is to sit down with them, recognize their nuclear power,  and work out a solution similar to what was done with Russia during the Cold War.

The other option, a military one, will almost for sure touch off a World War, and begin to destroy the current economy.

There is no more sitting on the fence of sanction implementations for North Korea.

We are moving into a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius. In that Age there is equality among cultures, countries, and ways of living.   There is a multipolar power sharing and resource sharing world building.

Already China and Russia are determined to changing the current economy from one led by the American dollar and America.

Obama’s presidency began the process of leveling the world’s playing field and honoring the differences in people. He did as much as he could do considering the power of the Deep State’s Military Industrial Complex.

Now Trump challenges that global way of connecting us all.  He represents America keeping power over the world as a Superpower.

On a deeper level those days are done.  Now let’s hope the awakening to that fact happens without war and complete economic downfall.

We must collectively choose from our Higher Selves, not our ego selves, or as Sun in Aquarius Abraham Lincoln suggested- let our Better Angels lead the way.

Is our country and world sufficiently awakened to our Higher Self, the one aligned with the Age of Aquarius?

If not, and we will know soon, we will face our collective shadows in war and severe economic downturn.

As we each align with the energies of the Universe and our Higher Selves now, we need to then surrender our ego control and let this all play out as it will.

We can do our part by being in our Higher Self’s connection with Love and Truth.  And we can spread that wonderful energy to others we connect with.

And of course our letting go of the old programming from family and society,  helps everyone else to do so also- as a new trail is being blazed for everyone who awakens.

We also choose in this new consciousness to find balance and equality of male and female, yin and yang, dark and light, as true Nature requires.

 And that balance can be found at the Autumn Equinox on September 22 at 4:02 PM.

Autumn Equinox as always begins Sun in Libra time of year.

Autumn Equinox brings a perfect balance of light and dark minutes of the day, which is a signal for all opposites to join in equal balance.

After the moment of perfect balance, dark minutes of the day begin to increase, finding their optimum at Winter Solstice.

Libra time of year is a time to enjoy beauty and balance, symmetry and equality.  There is more emphasis on relationships and love.

Libra is also about the scales of justice, and knowing what is fair and just.  Libra can see both sides of an issue, which makes them great mediators but often as a result indecisive.

Libra is a sign of social graces, which can often preclude passion and primal desires and natural instincts.

Jupiter has been in Libra this past year, so we have been expanding our desires to make relationship, and to find equal balance and moderation in our consciousness and ways of living.

In a few weeks, however, expansive Jupiter will shift into Scorpio for a year.  Starting on October 10, we thus will begin to expand our desire nature, our sexual needs, and most importantly find what gives us passion in our life.

Scorpio also, in the process of reactivating our more primal instincts, may take out of slumber our repressed or suppressed lower emotions.

Rage, jealousy, envy, contempt, and just general meanness are the worst potential expressions of Scorpio.

Suppressed or repressed earlier traumatic events and wounding will tend to come to the surface where we can from our souls,  relive and at the same time release some of those old traumas.

As Jupiter goes into Scorpio, we will get more clear instinctually on what direction to take.  We will know from our passions what we want to do next.

In the world, events are more likely to be ignited after Jupiter goes into Scorpio, events that can be referred back to the Eclipse season we just passed through.

But for now gather yourself, investigate what needs to be investigated, fix, heal, repair, simplify and find order (Virgo).  And then also find the right balance, be more kind, focus on relationships and relating, look for love and beauty in everything (Libra).

Till next week,

Leo

Eclipse Season Begins and Astrology Forecast July 23-29.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 22, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We enter Eclipse Season this week, as it begins at the Leo New Moon Sunday July 23 at 5:46 AM EDT.

There will be more pop to this Leo New Moon than the usual Leo New Moon because Mars is conjunct that New Moon.

Mars will stay in the spotlight most all this week, as it continues conjunction with the Sun through mid week.

Leo New Moon seeks to bring us to opening our hearts to “in the moment” creative space. Leo is energetically at its best when it is unselfconscious and thus spontaneously shining expressively from the heart.

This is not the Venus part of the heart which seeks to make relationship.  The Solar (Sun is the ruler of Leo) heartspace is about pure self expression.  Of course Leo does want to influence people, but relationship is not its priority.

At its worst Leo looks in the proverbial mirror to admire itself, and then its pure expression is tainted by being self conscious.  At its very worst its’ gaze at its’ reflection creates narcissism.

Leo is like a very young child who spontaneously expresses itself, wants to have fun, and gazes over its shoulder to see if people are looking and admiring her.

So with Mars in Leo conjunct the New Moon in Leo, a healthy response is to be open hearted in expression, having fun, and being naturally creative by being spontaneously “in the moment”.  Creative endeavors and projects get the green light after this.

The Mars part of this formation brings more force to the expression, more self assertion and being true to self.

The Mars conjunct Leo New Moon can also bring more conflict, more harshness, and more forceful egocentricity.

On the world stage big egos will strut and challenge other big egos to a duel, which in the modern world can bring dangerous conflicts or wars.

In past writing I have shown all the Mars aspects coming with this Eclipse Season, especially around August 21, at the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo.

The natal Mars of Trump, Netanyahu, and Israel will be in extremely close conjunction with that Eclipse.  

For the USA, Saturn changing directions will be in very close aspect to the USA natal Mars in Gemini, which is quite close to Trump’s Sun in Gemini.  This will be around the time of the Total Solar Eclipse.

And North Korea and Syria’s natal charts have very close conjunctions to this Eclipse also.

For the next couple of months there is a strong possibility of major conflict breaking out in our world, a conflict that could have a domino effect on many countries.

This is not for sure, but bears close attention.  And after this Leo New Moon on the 23rd, we will be able to see what potential outbreaks become more likely.

Issues could fizzle, it is true, but also there is strong possibility something will be ignited, much stronger than usual.

Many of my readers have known for awhile of this time.  We will be challenged, so we can upgrade our consciousness and talents.  Then we will be ready to make our contribution to our human family, as it faces its great challenges.

The “old gods” from an old paradigm are flexing their muscles and digging in, so they and their paradigm can continue.  They use fear, shame, and guilt to keep us stuck in the old world.  They will try to trigger our rage and hatred toward others in order to keep them in power.

The new gods and goddesses, so to speak, bring love and truth with them, motivating us to more pure self expression and more clarity of purpose for our new age.

They show us that all and everyone is connected in unity, diversity within unity for the Age of Aquarius.

We will need to keep our energy portals, our chakras, open to the new energies, new consciousness, to more love and light.

It will be part of our personal challenge to combine our love with our own power. We must get over the fear of our own power, as love without personal power and truth is weak and diffuse.

This is not power over anyone, but instead personal empowerment that has the force and passion to stand strong and vital and to meet the challenges thrown our way.

I know many of you have been recently undecided and unclear about making decisions and choosing direction for your life.

We have apparently been waiting for the outbreak and awakening to happen, that which changes all our lives.

This is either that time now, or it is the trigger to open the passageways for that which is close to becoming reality soon.

Or maybe this time we come close to outbreak, then back off and diffuse the energies of combat for now.

No matter what happens, we are in this Eclipse Season at a major turning point in our collective human lives and evolution.

Concentrate at this Leo New Moon on opening your heart and solar plexus, expressing your authentic self, and empowering yourself.

The day before this New Moon, the day of this New Moon, and the day after, with the Moon dark; you have much power to visualize, to create, to make strong intention and prayer.

Late Wednesday the 26th of July, Mars is conjunct the Sun in Leo.  This gives your self expression, self honoring, and empowerment a jolt of energy and vitality. Do not be afraid of your power or ego.

You have grown enough to be able to integrate it with all that you are. If you are committed to your higher soul self as your guide and leader, then your ego will serve it not dominate it.

On Monday July 24 Venus will oppose Saturn.  That means we are ready to set strong boundaries in our relationships, and ready to end relationships or its dysfunctional relationship patterns. We are also ready to make relationship commitments, if that is appropriate at this time.

On July 25 Mercury (mind and communication) leaves creative Leo, and enters analytical Virgo. On August 12, while still in Virgo, Mercury goes Retrograde.

It will be Retrograde when the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo forms. It goes back direct on September 5, while still in Eclipse Season.

So get your motor running this weekend at the Leo New Moon, then get moving forward this week.

Please take a look at new video I made about the coming eclipses:

Till next week,

Leo

 

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.

Combining Head and Heart and Astrology Forecast August 9-15

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 8, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are working our way through an important turning point in our lives.  This past week, since Saturn went Direct  on August 2, has brought us to a shift in our consciousness and life.  For some this may be rather subtle energetically, but for others it is much more obvious.

Perhaps something has come to light that you were not fully aware of before; or perhaps an event happened that turned your thinking; perhaps someone else has revealed something about themselves or you that you were not fully aware before.  Maybe a light switch went on in your mind or heart that shows you the way to go now.

This turning point time period will give way to a sense of new beginnings after the New Moon in Leo on Friday August 14.  That New Moon will be at 10:53 AM EDT.

The lunar cycle begun at this New Moon in Leo will lead to a very important lunar cycle that will begin at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 13.  The Solar Eclipse will be followed by a powerful Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on September 27.  That is called by some a Blood Moon as it is the 4th Lunar Eclipse in row that is a Total Lunar Eclipse, a rare occurrence.

And all 4 of these Total Lunar Eclipses happen on sacred Jewish dates.

And this turning point we are moving through now- included Saturn going Direct while making close aspect to Jupiter, Venus and Mercury- all right at Israel’s natal Mars placement.

So something is really stirring around Israel.  And this last week during this turning point time, much has been happening with the Iranian nuclear deal, a deal that is passionately opposed by Israel.

One of Israel’s top officials commented this past week that Israel is considering bombing Iran’s nuclear facilities regardless of this deal that was struck with UN countries.

That would likely touch off a major Middle East and perhaps world conflict.

Iraq, Libya, and Syria are suffering largely because of foreign invasions or influences, and the Islamic State is strongly influential now in those and other countries in the Middle East.

And President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran is also being challenged by hawkish elements in the USA Congress, in Iran, in Israel and other countries.

Look for more clues, signs and synchronicities this week to tell you what may be coming to the Middle East and elsewhere during the upcoming Eclipse Season.

And this is also true for your own life.   The turning point time period will shift into Drive Gear at the New Moon in Leo on August 14.  But before Friday keep in mind we are in the last quarter phase of the Moon’s cycle.

So this week before the New Moon in Leo, we will be picking up the emotional pieces from the last few weeks, processing our experiences, and getting ourselves ready for renewed action and greater intensity.  Do your best to not let energies of depression control you before this New Moon, but nevertheless allow your soul to come down into its truth even if that truth will tend to “bring you down”.

We have been getting more into our heart and its wisdom and connections during these last few weeks.  With a New Moon in Leo and Mars going into Leo on Saturday August 8, there is still going to be a strong focus on heart and creative energies.

What makes your heart sing, what and whom is your heart into, how much can you open your heart to express the authentic being that you are by nature?   How much can you improve your self expression and self esteem- enough to put the controlling ego in the back seat of your life?

But along with this heart emphasis we will be integrating the earthy mental vibes of Virgo. Mercury went from Leo to Virgo this last Friday August 7 and Jupiter will enter Virgo (where it will stay for about a year) this Tuesday August 11.

Virgo is the sign after Leo, and as such it tends to humble the Lion’s big roar of pride.  Virgo can also bring some shame to the bravado of Leo, its self focus and its big hearted honesty.  Sometimes big hearted honesty can hurt others like when a little child passes an overweight person and says “look mommy at that fat man”.   Honest and innocent but not aware of its affect on others.

So be ready as we begin to get more Virgo influence of needing to combine more your head with your heart.  Your head is your heart’s important advisor and needs to be consulted on important matters.  And with Mercury ruling the head of mind and communication, its loves to be in Virgo.

Virgo analyzes, finds “what’s wrong with this picture”?, and generally brings one down into the details of cold reality.

So watch for “reality” to begin to come more into play now, and for a greater need to fix or heal what has been broken or injured.

Jupiter in Virgo will make expansive energies be more grounded in practical and logical ways. Inspiration will need to combine with needs to manifest, not just fly into new ideas that are never earthed.

There will need to be more order to one’s aspirations and dreams.

This may sound like a “downer” to some free spirits. But if you want your spirit to serve your purposes for being here on this Earth at this important time, then you will get some help over the next year to make that more real.

Keep in mind also this week that Venus is still Retrograde and will be until September 6.  At this turning point time period, there will tend to be new insights and light shone on important relationships and their patterns and habits.

As you move through this New Moon in Leo, you will be driving your life car forward even if you do not completely know what has recently shifted in your important relationships.  Since the turning point is passing, this New Moon will be bringing you forward into a more certain relationship destiny, even if much still needs to be revealed to your conscious mind.

Till next week,

Leo
