Mercury Back Direct and Astrology Forecast March 24-30

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on March 23, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides now, which means we are shifting our consciousness, our minds, and perhaps our inner beliefs as well.

Mercury is finally going back Direct this week, and as it goes back Direct we have the promise of receiving more clarity and direction soon.

Mercury goes back Direct on Thursday March 28 at 9:59 AM EDT.

Now that does not mean all of a sudden everything is crystal clear, or that signs pointing us in the right direction will be abundant and billboard certain.

Nevertheless, we should feel the gear shift in our minds changing from reverse to neutral,  then to Drive.

The neutral gear is on right before, right on , and right after the time Mercury goes direct.

That time period can actually be the most distorted, most foggy, or most confusing time in the Mercury cycle.

Mercury “rules” thinking, sharing information, and communication.  So during a few days surrounding that shift out of reverse, we may feel like everything is getting better for finding clarity and direction.  But usually it takes an additional week or 10 days before a more complete and clear picture appears.

As we have been writing, April 5 at the Aries New Moon is a good marking point for moving forward with clear direction and intention.

But even then, both Saturn and Pluto will be square the New Moon, which could bring some obstacles experienced on our path forward.

But for this week,  let in the notion that clarity is wanting to form now.  But the slow process of Mercury getting back to its usual Direct speed,  deems it is still important to hold back and wait for the clouds to fully part before jumping to conclusions or leaping before you look.

With Mercury slowing down to shift from Reverse to Direct, the Mueller report comes out, though in some kind of secrecy.

How much of it will be made public?  Why are there no new indictments?  Will other branches of government or other legal avenues still be investigating.  And what is in this report?

Not being made totally public seems to me to be an obvious affront to our democracy, which is “of the people by the people, and for the people”. Is it not?

But Mercury Retrograde is still in force till Thursday the 28th; then immediately afterward will still be rather murky in its lenses for 10 days or so afterward.

So clarity will be slow to form around this Mueller report.  And Trump’s fate will not be sealed yet either.

But as we have been expressing, Trump is not the most important issue. He is merely an actor in this drama of a changing of ages and paradigms.

The transformation of our consciousness and heart is of utmost importance now.  And we each need to become what we believe in.

We each also need to know and own and be true to our role or function or purpose in this changing world now.

The Military Industrial Complex is coming down, out of the form it is currently occupying.

So the economy and military world condition of the USA is only in the beginning stages of transformation.  This transformation will happen no matter who the elected officials are.

Pluto (in its 1st ever natal USA Return), Saturn and Jupiter will be making triple conjunction with the USA natal Pluto. This happens 2019-2024. 

In its natal chart, the USA has Pluto in Capricorn in its 2nd house.  That placement is symbolic of the Military Industrial Complex.

The transformation will be immense and will affect the whole world.  The need to reform  and transform this world and each of our consciousness’ into the better angels of the Age of Aquarius is so important now, as that endeavor will help provide the foundation for this New World.

It is important to elect people who are most attuned to the principles, values and ideals of a new age and paradigm.

So 2020 becomes so important in that regard, especially so because right after the November 2020 Election Day, in December 2020: Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, giving us a sign that a portal into the Age of Aquarius will be opening then.

This Week:

In addition to the shift of Mercury from Retrograde to Direct this week, we also have Venus going into Pisces on Tuesday the 26th; the 4th and last quarter Moon in Capricorn on the 28th; and Mars entering Gemini on the 30th.

Venus going into Pisces on the 26th is a wake up call for rebooting our heart energy to include more empathy and compassion now.

Quan Yin is an apt archetype for Venus in Pisces.   Venus in Pisces, with its compassion, does need, however, to have the kind of boundaries that stop them from being used or from sacrificing themselves into a selfless position.

Venus will stay in Pisces until April 20, so you have some time to do some healing and give more care to your relationships.

In doing counseling of couples for many years, I have noticed the most improvements in relationships when each partner can truly put themselves in the shoes of the other.

Empathy is a solid bridge between people’s hearts. This does not mean forgetting about your own needs. But it does mean putting their needs as important as your own.

The 4th quarter Moon in Capricorn is on the same day as Mercury going back Direct.

So it is good to be aware that the Moon is darkening every day until the New Moon in Aries on February 5.

So the Yin-ward journey of this darkening 4th quarter Moon in Capricorn,  is needing to be made real and needs to hold strong boundaries.

There is no room now for pity parties; there is plenty of room for making plans that will produce action later.

Mars goes into Gemini on the 31st at 2:12 AM EDT.   It stays there until May 15, when it goes into Cancer. On its way through Gemini in early May, it makes conjunction with the USA natal Mars in Gemini.

And it also will oppose transiting Jupiter in Sagittarius, which will be opposing the USA natal Mars in Gemini.

And Trump’s natal Sun and Moon in Gemini and Sagittarius, respectively, will be also aspected as they make close natal contact with the USA militant and Military Mars.

This shows that the USA police and/or military will be in the spotlight this Spring 2019.

For all of us Mars in Gemini signifies a time when we are more curious, more filled with questions and desires to question authority or accepted ways of being.

Mars in Gemini motivates us to learn or teach;  to get more objective facts; to communicate, write, or talk more; to open our minds to new ways of thinking.

Next week we experience the force of a New Moon in Aries on April 5. I will have a new video out before then.

Till next week,

Leo

Better Angels and Astrology Forecast March 17-23.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on March 16, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week Mercury Retrograde continues its trickster journey in foggy Pisces, making it difficult to know anything for sure.  Mercury will stay Retrograde until March 28.

And around the time Mercury gets back to speed, we experience the focused force of a New Moon in Aries on April 5. Till then we lay back and do more inner exploration and processing.

There is not now much clear and focused planetary energy for us to use for decisions, direction, or positive action now. It is not time yet.

Nevertheless, this week we will experience an energy shift mid week, as the Spring Equinox combines with a Full Moon in Aries/Libra on Wednesday March 20.

Spring Equinox, as always, brings the Sun into Aries.  What is different this year, however, is the fact that the Moon moves into Libra- exactly opposite that Spring Equinox Sun in Aries a mere few hours later.

Spring Equinox is at 5:58 PM EDT on March 20.  The Full Moon, with Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra, is at 9:43 PM EDT that day.

We are beginning to open up to energies of forward movement, but important movement forward is not in the cards yet.  Mercury Retrograde is still sorting things out in our minds, helping us to process feelings and thoughts that may be keeping us stuck.

This Full Moon is about working out any dilemmas we may hold around balancing our needs for independence and being true to Self on the one hand (Aries), with being sensitive to relationship and listening to others on the other hand.(Libra).

Aries fights for what it believes in, Libra seeks peace at all costs.  Aries is forceful and often competitive, Libra is socially correct and a mediator between opposing voices or opinions. Aries is governed by Mars, Libra by Venus.  Which side have you been leaning toward lately? Might be time to find a new balance between these two opposites.

After this Full Moon, we enter the waning half of the lunar cycle, directing us to coast “downhill” before the strong forward movement of the New Moon in Aries on April 5.

Many people I talked with this last week were going through rather “on the edge” situations in their lives.  Self destructive thoughts, near relationship breakups,  and fears of old patterns coming back were some of those edgy situations.

Sometimes it takes these “on the edge” challenges to push us over the edge into true change and transformation.

Speaking of “on the edge”, this last week our world experienced another mass murder, this time at a mosque in New Zealand where 49 people were massacred by a white supremacist.

These massacres are happening more and more often, and show us there is much that needs healing in our world.

The world is split between nationalists and globalists, with little apparent link between them.  Nationalists want to “clean out” all peoples who migrated into their country from other countries and cultures.

Globalists want to join all peoples together, even within a country.  Immigrants then join with more “pure” members of the country.

So, for instance, in France many nationalists want only purely French people in the country, not those who have immigrated to France from other cultures, largely Muslim dominated cultures.

They want to make France great again. MAGA would be changed to MFGA.  And many other western countries are going through similar challenges.

In Britain, the people voted in a referendum to leave the European Union (Brexit). They want to return to Britain as it used to be: Nationalism.  Obviously, those who want to stay in the Union are more globalist.

But do you see here the stew of Diversity within Unity boiling over chaotically? Choice here has been between old unity of old country versus more diversity that is unregulated in the country.

But the immigrants will not ultimately be thrown out, so the Diversity will stay. And Unity of France or England or USA with all that diversity is the only possible solution.

In the USA minorities and women are getting stronger and stronger. In not too many years minorities will be the majority. And there is no stopping the empowerment of women anymore.

If you are a progressive or globalist or even socialist, there is no stopping the world becoming more how you envision it.

The only question is how ugly, how violent, how hateful, how destructive will our world get in its process to becoming the Diversity Within Unity world it is meant to be.

And can we destroy our world and not get to the promised land? And can we destroy our air, oceans, etc. on the way to this Age of Aquarius?

This is why it is so important now to let hatred leave our hearts, to let love in.

Yes we each need to stand our ground and fight for the world we believe in!! Can we do it without hatred?

Can we do it with little or no violence? Can we make this revolution work without triggering anyone to use weapons of mass destruction?

Can civil disobedience be our path into this New Age?

So let’s quit making everything about Donald Trump? He is a pawn in the grand scheme. He is playing his role in the world drama. As Shakespeare wrote in As You Like It, “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players”.

Trump is there to show us how off track our country has become: worshipping wealth and fame above all else, letting the higher values of the Constitution and Bill of Rights become lesser values in our world.

Whether he is impeached or not is not the question.  To Be or Not to Be our best selves, aligned with our better angels is the question.

And now each of us must find our better angels inside ourselves.  And that will bring us our better world.  We each must be the world we believe in.

Yes we are about to experience the Shit Hitting the proverbial Fan.  But in that place on the edge is where we find our breakthroughs and awakenings into the Age of Aquarius, into a world governed by Love and Truth.

Sure that may seem far away as we look at the greater world now. But can you remember when you were on the edge emotionally when you lost that loved one, or were abandoned in a relationship? Can you remember that job you lost that meant so much to you, as you worried if you could pay your bills?

We have all had to go to the edge in order to wake up to something; or to be humbled; or to see everything in a new light; or to let go of what was blocking our way; or to become more empathetic or compassionate,; or to transform a belief or old toxic pattern; or to break through old programming; or to liberate ourselves from a stuck place, etc.

And now our world has come to the end of an Old Chapter that is not serving our spirits and souls anymore; that is holding back our natural evolution; that is blocking our path to better relationships; that is keeping us in a paradigm of dog-eat-dog separation; materialism;  lack of meaning and sacredness; without enough love or truth, etc.

These next few weeks may have us continue facing our shadows or inner demons, as we wait for the grand openings after April 5.

You are getting ready for new direction and new movement forward soon.

For now hang back and do not make big decisions or start major projects or impulsively leap into anything for escape.

Till next week,

Leo

Filling Up with Love and Truth and Astrology Forecast March 10-16

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 9, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week’s New Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune plus Mercury turning Retrograde, shook up the status quo and shifted gears into reverse.

Moving forward in a big way, with anything important, is highly frowned upon now.  Making big decisions is not advised; pushing forward anyone or anything not ready to be pushed is highly discouraged.

You already know that Mercury Retrograde can be like a “trickster”, playing with your mind. Everything is not as it appears to be, just as “magicians” fool us with their magic tricks or cards.

Pisces is often less clear than other signs, as it seeks to take one into other frequencies; into our imagination; into intangible realities; into escapism; into foggy soul shamanic journeys; ; through signs and symbols from hazy dreams; through magical adventures that seem so surreal.

And as the New Moon in Pisces last week came on the heels of Mercury turning Retrograde, we have been brought into another realm of consciousness whether we acknowledge that fact or not.

Added onto these planetary movements is the fact that “god of the ocean” Neptune was closely conjunct that Pisces New Moon. Neptune is the ruling planet of Pisces, and as such is the gate-keeper into soul realms that cannot be controlled by logic or rules.

All in All, some will feel like they are in the Twilight Zone, an alternative spiritual reality not measurable by scientific technique.

It is a mystic world that can only be truly appreciated through surrender, the kind of surrender of mind and ego that opens the doorway into deep meditation, dream filled sleep, or psychedelic journeying.

Of course we also have to walk through “real” life in order to go to work, pay bills, take care of kids, etc.

But we can find time to meditate, and we can shift our usual focus in order to let in energies and viewpoints from this deep soul world.

You can make intentions now, connected with Universe and Higher Self, and then let go and patiently watch inside you, around you, and in dreams for signs, symbols and synchronicities that show you a path connected to those intentions.

It can also be a good time now for positive visualization, for co-creating with Source (Universe) for what is coming to you, for what is in alignment with your Soul’s desires and destiny.

Portals can open now into new inner vistas of exploration for you;  for needed healings; for how to actualize your Higher Self’s intentions and dreams; for moving more fully and gracefully into a New Chapter of your life; for knowing more about the deeper level of our relationships; for knowing the unity and connections all around us; for deeper insights into any of our life’s endeavors or challenges.

But getting bottom line answers or conclusions may have to wait for the process to entirely unfold, bit by bit.

And April 5 can be used as a somewhat flexible marking point for finding direction and being ready to move forward.  After that energies are for action and new starts and straight forward truths.

There is a New Moon in action-oriented Aries then, but even then there are restrictive energies to face as both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn make a difficult square to that New Moon in Aries.

Answers will be more readily available and direction more discernible, but smooth sailing not likely.  There will be obstacles to contend with, challenges to be met.

Coming back to this week, we are entering the 2nd quarter of the waxing half of the Pisces lunar cycle on the 14th- with the Moon in Gemini.

This is most definitely a time when information can come in big waves, waves that may feel overwhelming at times, and perhaps confusing.

Just look at the media now- very few media hubs are searching for truth. Instead they are all too often trying to sell or communicate an agenda. Fox and MSNBC are on opposite sides of the TV news fence, and neither can be relied upon to just objectively provide facts in the search for truth.

And there are so many sources of news and opinions, most often coming up with fake or exaggerated news.

We each now need to develop our own inner connection to truth, our truth, but also an objective inner fact-finder to capture the truth.

So many sources are trying to program our minds to think a certain way, to buy a certain thing, to vote a certain way.

It is so important now to know Who you are, to accept Who you are, to be True to that Self, to deeply honor yourSelf.  The lower your self esteem and the more you dislike yourself; then the more susceptible you are to be programmed, to drink someone else’s kool-aid agenda, to be taken advantage of, to do things you would not do if you were in your integrity of being.

The sheep are always herded into being programmed.  You may be a knee jerk liberal or conservative, who does not truly think for themselves, but instead automatically thinks like everyone else in the group or party. You do not even know you have been programmed to think and vote a certain way.

So take off the uniform and think for yourself.

Carl Jung said that something like one tenth of one percent of people are truly self actualized.  The rest are Sheep being herded by governments, corporations, families, religions, etc.

“Of the people, by the people and for the people” can only be truly manifested in this world if we are mainly populated by free minds and hearts that are each part of a self actualized person.

The Diversity within Unity paradigm of the Age of Aquarius can only work if there is a plethora of humans who are self actualized and individualized.

The day before the 2nd quarter Moon in Gemini, on the 13th, we get Sun square Jupiter and Sun sextile Pluto aspects.

All in all energies will be intensifying then, but keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde and the Sun is still in “go with the flow” Pisces.

Keep mentally discipline so you do not get swept up into anything or jump to conclusions or do anything impulsively.

Keep letting the process unfold and keep looking for signs, symbols and synchronicities. Let the truth unfold as the river flows.

And yes out in the world all is still messy. Trump had a horrific week as talks with North Korea went nowhere, the stock market went downward, and old friends and business buddies went to jail.

Pakistan and India calmed down their rage for one another, but trust me when I tell you that the Middle East is going to erupt.  Israel and Iran and Palestine and Syria are getting ready for conflict.

Starting in April and through October, it is very likely that major war will erupt somewhere during that time,and the USA will get involved.  And the economy will be severely challenged then also. And both Trump and Netanyahu will be in deep trouble legally and politically.

But as this darkness gets stronger and stronger, the force of the Light will be increasing as much or more. Do releasing and purging in the dark, but also widely open your mind and heart for the Light. Let it pour through into your chakra system.

Do not let the fear from the dark take over.  So many people are awakening, so many young people are strong and determined to be a part of the transformation into an Age of Aquarius.

The good-old boys networks of privilege are coming to an end.  Avenues inside everyone will be open and letting in the truth and love that are changing the world.

Don’t get wrapped up into how it will happen logically. Let that go and instead feel the depth of change moving through us.  It will happen if we allow the old blocks in our system to break down. The old programming needs to be released.

Lay down and spread your legs and arms as far apart as possible. And then feel how surrendered you are getting- surrendered only to the Universe and the light ,love and truth pushing up against our blocks.   Let it all in as best you can. It is time now to fill ourselves up with love and truth, so when the energies shift for action we will be ready.

Till next week,

Leo

Deeper and Deeper and Astrology Forecast March 3-9.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 2, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shit has certainly hit the proverbial fan out in the world.  The old world is purging out its debris for all to see.

Trump meeting with Kim Jong Un did not go as hyped for.   Congressional hearings with Michael Cohen gave out ugly info about Trump that tears his character apart.    Pakistan and India are macho strutting around with nuclear weapons, with all humanity put in danger.

This is all coming out not long after a most intense Eclipse Season earlier this year.  Now in the waning half of the lunar cycle that has followed that Eclipse Season, we are wading through what has been not so graciously excreted into the world.

We are needing to more and more concentrate on the New World we are sensing and creating, growing out from what is being purged.

Death and Birth are constant realities here on the Earth plane.  And now we are in the midst of a huge death of a Pisces Age, over 2000 years old.

And at the same time, we are birthing a new golden Age of Aquarius, which will last 2,160 years.

Can you see what is here now as we let go the past, and let in the new? Both Dark and Light are stronger than ever.

The power of the Feminine is growing and so needed now.  I see a powerful black woman, a Sophia like entity growing stronger and stronger behind the veils of our dying world.

She is most able to deal with humanity through this death while at the same time able to mid-wife the new world into being.

And the growing Feminine is obvious now in the political world, as young and strong women of color are speaking out.  They know the need to purge old ways and build new ones that will serve more and more people in our country and world. The Dark Feminine can hold with compassion those dying souls, and open the way for Birth.

Remember, however, that those from the old world are not the enemy, though it sure feels like it sometimes.

Conservative is merely a desire to hold onto what has been before.  And some of it needs to be looked at before being abandoned.  Are late term abortions really OK? Is it really OK to let everyone into the country without rules?  I think these issues need to be examined, not put so squarely into left and right boxes.

Some conservative ways and beliefs hold onto what is needed from our past. We do not want to throw out the baby with the bath water, so to speak.

And both neo-cons (new conservatives) and neo-libs (new liberals) are wanting conflicts in Venezuela and Syria.  We need to get outside those boxes and speak loudly for no more war, no more fixing other countries into what we want them to be, and no more nukes in our world.

Time to continue together to envision our new world, transform our consciousness in its essence,  and fight for what we believe in,  not against anything or anyone.

Keep meditating and being with others who also know this new world inside.  All is inside first, as we visualize the new world as it will be.

Let the Universe (Source) into your meditations to help co-create this New Age. It is sitting in the inner planes waiting for you to connect to.

This week brings a major shift, as Mercury goes Retrograde just before the New Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune.

Mercury goes Retrograde on Tuesday March 5 at 1:19 PM EST. 

The New Moon in Pisces is on Wednesday March 6 at 11:04 AM EST.   It is especially important and influential as it is closely conjunct Neptune in Pisces and square Jupiter in Sagittarius. 

Expect there to be much confusion and potential chaos, whose purpose is to shake us out of old thinking and old habits.

This is also a potentially a very spiritual combination, one that will help us to let go into the soul world of  connections, synchronicities, signs and symbol from the Universe.

The prerequisite for these experiences is to let go of fears, stuck attitudes and beliefs, and a hatred of the “enemy”.

Sure it can be healthy and empowering to be angry at injustice, unfairness, and ignorance; but hatred toward those who perpetrate those things creates ugly self defeating energy.  Use that energy to fight for what you believe in and the world you want to create.

So Mercury Retrograde may be even more confusing or unsettling than usual, as the Pisces/Neptune effect is so strong too.

Do not push hard to get things done, get an answer, quick-fix anyone or anything,  or rush through some strict agenda.

Stay present, do not panic, do not rush to judgement.

Your mind is wanting to shift its perceptions now, and in the process may want to question your previous thinking, decisions, or promises.  Remember what is going on planetarily, and trust the process. Let this lunar cycle and Mercury Retrograde play out over the next month.

After April 5th or so, direction will be more clear and passages forward will open up.

Use this coming month to go deeper in consciousness, to get more clarity from signs in dreams and waking dreams.

Use the Pisces vibe to gain empathy for others, to better understand your partners, lovers, family members, friends, and especially so-called enemies.

Pisces teaches us that all is connected in unity, at a soul level of being. And it is the soul level of being that infuses us all with energy for connection with one another.

Do not live in a Pisces “dream world” of being naïve, however.  Be discriminating about what energy from others you are taking into your heart and soul.

You do not need to judge anyone it is true, but it is also important not to let in what will hurt you or disempower you. Some people can be so wounded, desperate, and ill on a soul level.  Yes have empathy, but do not stay with them too long. This goes for family and romantic partners too.

Especially now it is important to be as “clean” as possible, and to release old wounds and traumas in the process.

Neptune is the most influential planetary energy now, and it is a great healing energy. It helps dissolve old ways and attitudes, bring forgiveness, helps heal old wounds between people.

Surrender more this week to the Soul and Spirit realm, let go of left brain logic,  which will not work as well as usual.

Expect people from your past to resurface now in dreams and real life.

This next month is not good for big decisions, starting big projects, pushing for answers, pushing for anything.

Up ahead is Spring Equinox on March 20, Mercury Direct on March 28, and New Moon in Aries on April 5.  Before then we are processing, using imagination and intuition, facing ghosts of our past, and doing deep healing.

Till next week,

with Truth and Love,

Leo

Not Time Yet and Astrology Forecast February 24- March 2

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 24, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are still settling into this time of processing and sorting things through, as we move into the 4th and last quarter of the current lunar cycle.  This current lunar cycle began on February 4 at the Aquarius New Moon. It ends on March 6 at the Pisces New Moon.

And here in the Northern Hemisphere on Planet Earth, we are moving through the last month of Winter,  Sun in Pisces time.

The Pisces two fish swim in opposite directions, one upstream and one downstream. Upstream Pisces people are pointed toward the Spring Equinox, a symbol of hope as the Sun brings fresh air and new starts, a renewal of Nature and Life.

Downstream Pisces people are still looking back on Winter,  and can be caught up in the cold hard reality of life’s sufferings and victimizations.

During Winter Pisces time we all are going back and forth from looking forward with hope and positivity or instead toward a looking back with regret, sadness, or sorrow.

This back and forth is the necessary processing needed to bring some closure from old times, while also getting ready for the new times.

And now this process has more energy and intensity than the usual Pisces Winter transition, as we have all been moving from a long Old Chapter of our lives into a New Chapter, a New Chapter that is on the road to an immanent Age of Aquarius.

Look out at our world now and see and feel the splitting up of our wholeness as a human family.  The right and left sides of humanity seem to be in a tug -of -war, pulling apart and pulling away from a moderate center.

Left wing liberal and right wing conservative have been losing the central zone of connection with one another.

The Feminine, which represents the left sides of our bodies, is being ripped apart from the Masculine, which represents the right side of our bodies.

It seems that Yin and Yang, Light and Dark,  Old and Young are finding only slim threads of connection now in the mainstream of human society.

This part of transformation can feel destructive and chaotic.   It precedes a death of old ways and paradigms and ages.  And those deaths precede the birth of new ways, paradigms and ages. The approaching conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn is representative of this way-clearing destruction of a dying Age and Paradigm and its institutions and programs.

Individually, many who read this blog have evolved into the consciousness of a New Paradigm, to a lesser or greater degree on that New Age consciousness spectrum.

Transformation is not a one shot journey. Often one experiences a coming back of old issues previously thought to be long gone.   This happens so we can do a more complete job of cleaning out and letting go of old traumas, wounds, dysfunctional patterns, and dying old belief systems.

There is no spiritual goal post or finish line, as transformation is cyclic and circular like the Sun and Moon, not a straight line of beginning to end. We are always evolving unless we decide to get off the ride of soul growth.

The cycle of Ages puts us in transition from the Age of Pisces into an Age of Aquarius, getting closer and closer for us all.

The splitting up of humanity and the destruction of old ways can be seen out in the greater world.   The Pisces Age began with the power of the Roman Empire and ends with the last Empire ending with the ending of that Age.

The Roman Empire swallowed up many a human Earth culture and country.  The more sophisticated  current Empire is more crafty as it seeks regime change in countries it desires to dominate or colonize.  Venezuela and Iran are being scoped out now.

The footsteps of potential presidential impeachment are pounding closer and louder now in Donald Trump’s ears.

As chaotic situations become more prevalent in our country and world soon, leaders will seek more domination of people and situations, in the disguise of bringing more law and order to the world.

Yes this week brings us into the last quarter of the lunar cycle starting on Tuesday the 26th, with the Moon in Sagittarius.   Sun in Pisces is laid back and in the flow; Moon in Sagittarius is excitable and on a mission.  Which way will you be turning into the 4th quarter?

On Friday March 1, relationship issues get the spotlight, as Venus in Capricorn squares Uranus in Aries just before Venus goes into Aquarius.

If any relationship has been stuck or is getting too boring, these aspects will tend to break issues out of any limiting boxes they are locked up into, provide breakthroughs, and maybe even seek some kinky diversion.

Next week brings more major shifts, as Mercury goes Retrograde on March 5, just before there is a New Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune on March 6.  Mercury stays retrograde until March 28.

Clarity will be at a premium next week. Not that there is crystal clarity now.

But for this week, lay back as much as possible, trust the flow of process, and wait for more guidance and direction in the future.

Most likely we will be waiting until after April 5, at the Aries New Moon, to get our marching orders for forward movement with clarity and direction.

In the meantime, we can do some extraordinary soul searching and deep soul work. Meditation and music, film and art, poem and plays are more aligned than science and math now.

Open up to your inner Nero now, an emperor who played the fiddle as Rome burned.

America will be OK if it goes back to its higher values now, and away from its needs to be a Superpower Empire that dominates the world with feelings of superiority.  That is not the great America I want to go back to.

I want to be a part of an America that respects true diversity, freedom of speech, equality, and liberation from anything or anyone who tries to take power away from “of the people, by the people, and for the people”.

And those principles apply to all the world citizens, not just the chosen few.

Add Truth and Love being more important than wealth, fame, and privilege. Then the world will be one I can feel good about leaving to future generations.

Till next week,

Leo

Eclipse Season, Mercury going Direct, and Astrology Forecast December 2-8

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 1, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting energy tides this week, as there is a New Moon in Sagittarius and Mercury going back Direct toward the end of the week.

This coming Thursday December 6 shows us Mercury going back Direct.  Then on Friday December 7 at 2:20 AM EST there is a New Moon in Sagittarius.

Even though our days are getting darker till Winter Solstice on the 21st of December, we will nevertheless symbolically feel and see more “light” as free spirited fiery Sagittarius is where the New Moon will reside.

And the light of clarity will begin to flicker again as Mercury goes back Direct. It may be a very faint light of clarity at first, yet no more than 10 days or so after it goes Direct, a fuller clarity will be revealed.

Sagittarius is like a fireplace of warmth and light as we move toward the darkness and cold of approaching winter.

Sagittarius is expansive, progressive, and always seeks to take the high road. It sees meaning in everything, and believes that solution to problems is inevitable. Hence it has faith and confidence in life and the Universe.

Its potential downfalls are in leaping before it looks, being impulsive, taking ill advised adventures, believing it is always right, and forgetting it has a body.

The Centaur’s archer shoots for the sky, forgetting it is has a horse’s body below. So Sag can sometimes be so manic in its zeal and excitement that it forgets to ground itself in the reality of the physical world.

Mercury has been Retrograde since November 16, the same day as Venus went back Direct. It started its Retrograde process on October 5.

So issues of relating and relationships have been on the front burners of our hearts and minds for a few months now.

And when Venus gets back to its original Retrograde starting point of 10+ degrees of Scorpio on December 17, our relationship lives can gain more sanity and clear direction.

So don’t go fast -forward on relationship issues at the Pearl Harbor invasion anniversary of December 7, when the New Moon in Sagittarius arrives.

And don’t go fast forward with decisions and relationship plans on December 6 when Mercury goes back Direct.

Wait till after mid December to begin being clear enough and energized enough for your life’s journey into the New Chapter to resume.

Not long afterward, on January 5, the power of transformation will drastically amp up. That is when the first of 2 eclipses will be ignited:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn conjunct both Saturn and Pluto.

And Eclipse Season pretty much begins after the New Moon in Sagittarius this week on December 7.   The first winds of new changes will blow in afterwards, then intensify greatly after the Solar Eclipse on January 5.

This New Moon in Sagittarius is more complicated than the usual New Moon in Sagittarius, as both Mars and Neptune- conjunct in Pisces- will square that New Moon in Sagittarius.

That Mars/Neptune conjunction in oceanic Pisces will bring in huge waves of chaotic emotions and events.

Is it not getting rather obvious that we are on the precipice of enormous change and transformation in the world?

The Trump presidency is about to face the strong grim hand of the Mueller investigation, and who knows where his presidency will go from there.  The American stock market is getting closer to crashing. And America seems to be ramping up the energies of battle against Iran, Syria, China, and Russia.

The Solar Eclipse on January 5 is in close opposition to the USA Natal Sun in Cancer.  Heavyweights Pluto and Saturn will be conjunct that New Moon and also opposite the USA natal Sun in Cancer.

The USA is so ready for powerful transformation now.

And many personal lives are also getting ready for further transformation and change.

So many people have been waking up these past couple of years, and are rejecting the old ways from an old paradigm and age.

We have been conditioned and programmed to be and act as the old world has required us. We are now breaking those chains and embracing new consciousness and ways of being.

The old world is slipping away no matter how much people cry for MAGA.  The past is in our rear view mirrors, but the future is being created now in our hearts, minds and lives.

The Universe has been showing us through its planetary cycles and symbols that we are needing to shift our ways of relating and communicating. Venus and Mercury Retrograde have been recently giving us that message and the experiences needed to make the changes. Here are some lessons people have been learning for the consciousness of the New Age:

Number 1 relationship lesson is to be truly present in our relating, not distracted by other things. That presence is the only way to truly listen to and see someone else.

Number 2 lesson is to know that empathy is necessary in making a healthy relationship of any kind. If we cannot put ourselves in the shoes of another we cannot understand their journey and perspectives. Just the process of trying to empathize brings us closer together.

Number 3 lesson is that no one is in essence superior to anyone else. Each of us is different  from one another, with equal value, and not superior or inferior.

Number 4 lesson is that everyone wants to love and be loved, no matter how they seem.

Number 5 lesson is that communication is so important to any kind of relationship. Authentically expressing our truth is not enough. We also need to be aware of how the other person “hears” what we are saying. We may need to rearrange our wording or our tone so the other person can truly take in what we mean to say.

Number 6 lesson is that it “takes two to tango” as my Mother used to say. It is not usually a matter of someone being right and someone else being wrong. And it is usually not a matter of someone being the villain perpetrator and the other an innocent victim. Creating stories in our minds like that are hard to acknowledge and release. And if not released, these stories come with us into new relationships, causing dysfunctions once again.

Each party needs to be held accountable for their part of the issue. Even if one person has cheated on the other , or one person has an addiction that has hurt the relationship; the relationship problem is always deeper than the outer circumstances would suggest.

Nevertheless, sometimes it is right to leave a relationship as the original contract has been ended or breached, and it is time to move on.

And now our contracts as individuals in the old age and paradigm has been ending. The Aquarian Age awaits us.   We are each in the process of consciousness transformation into that Age and Paradigm.

The next few months of Winter Eclipse Season 2019 is about to begin. I will have a new video coming out within the next couple of weeks.

Till next week,

Leo

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

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo
