Mars Direct, Taking Action, and Astrology Forecast August 26- September 1

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Energy shift again this week, as there is a Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th, then Mars goes Direct on the 27th.

Last week Mercury went Direct after a rather difficult Retrograde time period that coincided with 2 of the Eclipses this Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

After Mercury goes Direct, mental fogs begin to lift as issues we were previously questioning begin to clear up.

And out in the world it happened almost in a textbook astrological fashion.

A few days after Mercury went Direct last week, the jury finally ended deliberation and found Trump’s campaign manager Manafort guilty on 8 felony counts ; his ex lawyer Cohen admitted guilt and implicated Trump; and Molly Tibbets who was lost for weeks was finally found dead in an Iowa cornfield and her killer was apprehended.

In your own life, did any issues clear up last week for you too?  If not this week it will likely happen soon, as in some cases it takes up to 10 days or so after Mercury is back Direct before clarity and direction are found. Mercury went Direct on the 18th/19th of August.

Adding to the feeling of direct motion this week is the fact that Mars goes Direct on the 27th.

Mars is desire, will, assertion, force, and action.  When Mars is Retrograde, deep in our souls we are deciding what we truly want and/or what action we will take or direction we choose to move toward.

After the 27th you will begin to know more clearly what you want.  Give it up to 10 days or so before you are entirely clear.  Taking action will begin to come more easily too, as will the courage to do what is needed or wanted.

In the greater world, people or countries that have held back in any way will begin to be more decisive and more ready to take action.

But the “corner will not be turned” out of the old chapter and into a new chapter until “hand of time” Saturn goes Direct on September 6.

Then 3 days later there is a New Moon in Virgo on the 9th.   The New Chapter is ‘”earthed” in reality after that.

But coming back to this week, Sunday the 26th is a Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces at 7:56 AM EDT.

This is usually a very gentle full moon. But a Venus square Pluto aspect that day will likely bring more intensity than usual. And of course a direction-changing forceful Mars will also be strong in our energy fields for a few days.

The Full Moon has the Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces.

Virgo is order and efficiency, simplicity and discernment, reality in the material world, and needs for purity and perfection on the physical plane of existence. It sees what is wrong or flawed and seeks to correct or fix it.

Pisces is other-worldly, dreamy and idealistic, sensitive and unconditional, flowing, feeling, and connected to the worlds of consciousness and the world of dreams, metaphors and symbols.

They both can be selfless and doing for others or a cause bigger than themselves.

So at this Full Moon in Pisces, put your ego away and surrender to the forces of nature and the Universe.

Find a balance between outer world reality (Virgo) and inner dimensions of consciousness (Pisces).  Do your best to combine body (Virgo) and soul (Pisces). Though many religions try to separate them, making the body an enemy and the soul heavenly, in actuality they belong together all the time: Soul giving energy, consciousness, and purpose to our sacred vessel bodies.

Venus square Pluto that same day could bring some relationship challenges, meant to help us transform old patterns that no longer work in the relationship.

Then on Monday the 27th, Mars goes Direct and time to begin to move forward.

Last week the Mueller investigation showed us it has some claws now, and Donald Trump is in trouble.

As the heat gets more turned up, he will likely try to distract through making other issues more important, so watch for world conflicts, especially with Syria and Iran.  China, and North Korea also bear watching.

In October/November Trump’s natal Mars in Leo is triggered by Jupiter in Scorpio and transiting Mars in Aquarius.  That is when he will be fighting for his life and perhaps turning up the heat on world conflicts too.

The economy could also be challenged this Autumn and Winter, as transiting Saturn opposes the USA natal Venus and Jupiter, signifying gravity affecting USA sense of security, well being, and positive feelings.

For Donald Trump 2019 and 2020 will be most challenging,as Pluto will oppose Trump’s natal Venus in Cancer and Saturn in Cancer.  Security, safety, and well being will be in conflict for him. This is when impeachment will likely be front and center for him.

It is obvious to most now, I believe, that the world as we have known it is leaving us.

All is happening for a reason, as we are moving out of an old Age and moving into a New Age of Aquarius.

Feelings of doom and gloom need to be replaced by a knowing that “we the people” are now responsible for rebuilding our country and world.

And the foundation for that world is formed with our higher values and principles. Many will be in desperation and survival to the extent that they will not care about these values.

But when one sees the bigger picture of world transformation, one can divorce oneself from desperate fear, hatred of enemies, and panic.

Trump is meant to be in this position in our world now.   And he will likely not go down as easily as Nixon did.  The comparisons between those eras and Presidents is remarkable, so similar.

The job was not finished back in the ’60s and ’70s.

Now the young people of this country can be mentored by the elders who went through the Nixon years, as long as those elders stay aware that the world is being left to future generations who must shape this new revolution and evolution with their signature, not ours.

Quit complaining about Trump and the people who follow him.  You are playing into his need for attention and drama and his narcissism.  We are adding to the division of cultures in our country and world. There is nothing to fight against. There is plenty to fight for.

We can concentrate on keeping our higher values and principles, being aligned with the Universe and our Souls, keeping spiritual and humanitarian perspectives, and fighting to be heard and fighting for what we believe in.

There is no going back to “normal” anymore.  We are in a New Era on the way to the Age of Aquarius. Let’s make the best of it!

Till next week,

Leo

Mercury Direct, Mars soon too, and Astrology Forecast August 19-25

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on August 18, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this week’s forecast, Mercury is stationary, getting ready to shift from Retrograde to Direct at 12:25 AM EDT on Sunday August 19.  All other USA time zones have Mercury going Direct late on August 18.

When Mercury has slowed down and shifts to Direct, the mind is in flux, and things may feel more confusing or unusual or strange.

This will continue until around Monday the 20th, when our mind should again begin to feel more stable and clear.

Then for some it may take another week or so before they feel more back to normal mentally.

Waiting to make big decisions is a good thing now as Mercury’s trickster self often comes out to play when it shifts direction.

Keep in mind that Mars, however, remains Retrograde this week. It goes back Direct on August 27.

So clear direction, needs for willful action, and needs to know what you want now, are still on hold.

What do you really want for your life now?  What needs to be let go of in order to leave room for what you truly want?

At first do not think about it being practical or not. Get in touch with your “wants” from a pure or core place inside of you.

Once that is clear, then you can start your inner dialogue about how those desires can be grounded in reality.

And also while Mars is still Retrograde, get in touch with how these desires must be connected to your Soul or Spirit self, not just material desires.

You have been growing and evolving, finding your purpose and authentic Self in this world and Universe.

All your choices now can be connected to both your “higher self” and “lower self”. It is like telling a higher power, “make my will be thou will”.

Picking a home or relationship, for instance, that is connected to your True Self is just as important or actually more so, than price, image, and practical reality.

Are paying your bills or making your ego satisfied the reasons you came to the Earth?

Do you have a purpose? I do not mean a grandiose purpose necessarily, but rather a function in the human collective for the new world.

And a homemaker or mechanic, for instance, contribute to and service our community,  Earth and Universe- IF that is truly their function not just what they had to do to survive.

And one’s purpose or function can change over the course of a lifetime. The homemaker decides she will best serve and be deeply satisfied as a lawyer after her kids are mature enough or gone from the home.

But the point being made is that it is important to know what you want and what purpose is right for you at a deep level.

There are too many doctors or lawyers or CEO’s that took those careers because they gave them status or wealth. I am not now saying it is necessarily wrong to want those things in a career. I am saying that those reasons are best not being the main reasons for wanting the career. Being “called” to be a healer or doctor is most important to the professions in the medical or healing world.

Our world would be best served if everyone was doing what is deeply connected to their true purpose and function first and foremost.

The Age of Aquarius has Diversity within Unity as its signature, so finding your unique and authentic self and its place in the whole is most important.

I can tell you from experience that the Universe will help support you if you are in alignment with Your Truth and its contribution to the Earth, human community, and Universe.

The walls of the old ways of being separated and disconnected are leaving us now.

Yes the ways of separation inside ourselves is being broken down also. That does not mean all is unified in a way that each person must wear the same uniform as everyone else and hence losing of one’s individuality.

We are breaking down the walls of separation and at the same time opening the way for each person or entity to find and honor their true authentic Self and from that place contribute to the Whole Universe, Whole Earth and its creatures, and the Whole human community.

But first each of us must actualize our true whole Self by accepting our own inner diversity.

We cannot judge harshly or seriously repress any part of our multi-faced and multi-dimensional human Self.

We can keep each facet of ourselves alive and accepted, and expressed in the best way for our whole and unified Self.

As we accept all our many facets of self, we are doing what is needed in the world and human community within our own soul.

If your parents or other authorities shamed you for your passion or kindness or slowness or forcefulness, for instance, you tend to dislike that part of yourself and suppress it. Or rebel and force it on others.

The same is done out in the world. If someone is gay, for instance, they may be programmed by society or family or friends to judge themselves, be ashamed of themselves, and may suppress how they naturally express themselves or act out in the world. Or they stay in the closet. It takes real courage and self honoring to come out of judged boxes.

And each of us has been told who we are “supposed to be” in order to be accepted and not judged.

So we may then be ashamed and hide certain parts of our selves, keeping those traits boxed in our own inner closet.

Now the walls are coming down, we are each awakening, and knowing from a deeper place than ever before, that all in its essence is good, and all is connected.

Eclipse Season is still alive, but the energies are not as intense now. We are kind of seeing where all is at as the dust settles. Then later we will be ready to act in accordance with our collected soul wholeness and true function or purpose in this New Chapter of life on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

Mercury goes Direct at 12:25 AM EDT on August 19. And within two hours of the beginning of Mercury going Direct, Jupiter trines Neptune.

This is a potentially very spiritual combination, one that can take us into other dimensions or realities.  Your meditations may have more magic, as can be in your consciousness and life with synchronicity and meaningful symbols from the Universe.

But that same combination of Jupiter with Neptune can bring confusion or chaos. There are no boundaries with Jupiter/Neptune, so you could either fly into mystical dimensions or be in situations or mind frames that have you feeling disoriented.

Heads up this week, especially from late Saturday through Monday. Keep alcohol or drugs in moderation this week.

On the 22nd/23rd (12:09 AM EDT) the Sun goes into Virgo for its annual 30 day trip.

This can be a rather sobering time of the Virgo virgin needing things pure, ordered, efficient, and with discerning eye.

Virgo seeks perfection and can easily focus in on whatever is stopping things from being perfect or ordered.  So it tends to find what is wrong, and then sets out to fix, heal, and perfect.

Virgo time of year opens the doors of schools and the gathering of the harvest. It seeks simplicity and order, and can get rather obsessed with what it is thinking or doing.  It is a natural analyzer and wants everything to be real, warts and all.

When the Moon catches up with the Sun in Virgo on September 9th, it creates a New Moon in Virgo. After that we will be even more focused on fixing what needs to be fixed, healing what needs to be healed, working harder, and making things real and manifest.

Summer Eclipse Season will pretty much end then, and it will be time to get down to reality, but also to make real all that was merely concept or idea before.

Much has happened in the world during this Eclipse Season, and now as the Sun in Virgo will tend to sober us up beginning this week, we will look from a very real place at the condition of our world, country, and personal lives.

Yet being sober and real will also help us to come up with plans to fix what has gone wrong so we can move forward in the best way.

Till next week,

Leo

Continuing Eclipse Season Journey and Astrology Forecast August 12-18

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 11, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

All three eclipses of Eclipse Season 2018 have now been experienced.  Nevertheless, Eclipse Season remains strong in our personal and collective lives for a month or so.

Mercury and Mars are still retrograde, so all the needed information and experience have not been received yet.  Making big decisions and starting important projects are dependent now on what is still to be processed mentally, spiritually, and emotionally over the next month ofrso.

The 3 eclipses have shaken our lives, but what it all means is not yet fully determined.

Events that will result from the eclipses are still coming our way. The next six months or so will carry events that are most important for us all.

Much of what happens in the world in the next 6-8  months will be intense.  The Middle East is hot now; North Korea is hot again.

The current USA presidential administration has enacted policies that are beginning to isolate the USA from the rest of the world, including from its traditional allies like Canada and Europe.

The economy is much more fragile than the statistics that say it is strong. The next 6-8 months will show us more economic truths.

The culture war in the USA, which became more out in the open in Charlottesville last Eclipse Season 2017, will heat up again.

Our world is on the brink now, and the next 6-8 months will show us just how deeply we are entrenched in most challenging transformation.

Our human family all too often needs to be taken to the edge before it takes anything really seriously enough to make deep changes.

Weapons of Mass Destruction issues, Climate Change, an unfair economy, survival of the fittest mentality, rampant consumerism, and sexual and power abuse are all needing to be more seriously transformed into healthier ways of being for our human family.

The next 6-8 months should show us in a very real way what is urgently needing to be addressed.  World events will be challenging.

In personal lives, the New Moon Eclipse in Leo is energizing us to move forward, especially after Sunday the 12th.

But it is not time yet to go fully forward as some things still need to be figured out.   After Mercury goes back Direct on August 19 at 12:25 AM EDT, clarity will want to begin forming.

But Mercury will not be back to speed for another week or so after that, so you may have to wait a while longer before you know what to do.

And that times well with Mars Retrograde.  Mars Retrograde is a time to go inside and find out what you really want and what actions need to be taken.

Mars goes back Direct on August 27 at 10:05 AM. After that, knowing what you want and where you want to go will begin to get more clear.

Give Mars another week or 10 days after that before you may be absolutely sure what to do.

So by the time Saturn goes Direct on September 6, systems will be pretty much a go, but even more so after September 9 at the Virgo New Moon.

That is also a good marking point for the end of Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

Out in the greater world by that time, we should know much better where the Mueller investigation is headed.   Do they have enough ammo to go after Trump?

Also after Mars goes Direct, Mars being the god of war, countries like Israel will know more about the brewing conflicts it has with Iran and the Palestinians.

And the USA and North Korea will know more about where they stand with one another too.

And the tariff wars with China and sanctions against Russia, Iran and others will show more clarity concerning what happens next in each regard.

The world economy is also beginning to transform and it is so also in the USA.

As Saturn goes Direct on September 6, it has a journey in opposition to the USA natal Venus and Jupiter in September, October and November.

This is when the stock market and economy will be most susceptible to crashes or down-falls.

Things will not go back to “normal” anymore.  The old “normal” is gone. We are going forward into new horizons. And during this process a new normal will be formed.

Now can be a difficult time because the old chapter is gone and the new chapter has not fully formed yet. That can feel very insecure.

Others however may feel things have not been moving forward for them.  They feel trapped or stuck. They know they want to be liberated from the old ways, but they see no clear path forward yet. Or it feels very risky to move out of the stuck place.

Keep alert and present for signs and open doorways to getting out of the old pattern. Look and investigate options while Mercury and Mars are Retrograde.

Often times, the answers are options we have not previously considered. Open your mind and heart to the possibilities you have not previously considered.

Magic is alive for those who believe, so allow the wands of the Universe to pass over your heart and life.   You may be surprised.

Yet remember the old Arabic saying which paraphrased is something like, “trust Allah, but remember to tie up your camel”.

So yes belief and faith are important, but also keep your feet in the real world, proactively and  practically involved in your process of change.  Believing in magic is not about being passive in a fantasy world.

Synchronicity and signs from the Universe come to those who are aligned with their deeper soul and the Universe, and are also committed to their personal transformation and soul journey.

You can stay in the energy of the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo for a few days after it passes.

Mars in its Retrograde journey now goes from Aquarius to Capricorn on the 12th, allowing your search for what you truly desire to feel more real, directed and under your control.

When it goes back Direct on the 27th it will still be in Capricorn.

Later this week, on the overnight from the 18th to the 19th, Mercury goes back Direct.  Keep in mind that the 18th and 19th may feel kind of weird sometimes, with possibly a foggy mind, as Mercury is in transition from Retrograde to Direct.

Resist desires to jump to conclusions; let the process play out.

New Eclipse Season video is now out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PZ7ivn5qYM&feature=youtu.be.

Till next week,

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo and Astrology Forecast August 5-11

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 4, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We move this week into the last of three eclipses in Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

It is the last quarter of the Moon phase all week long until Saturday August 11 at 5:58 AM EDT.  At that time we experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo.

The Moon darkens more and more every day this week until after that New Moon in Leo.

That Leo Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 11 puts an end to a lunar cycle begun on July 12 at the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer opposite Pluto.

That New Moon in Cancer found “climax” on July 27 at the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius that was conjunct Mars and square Uranus. That lunar cycle ends on August 11 at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo.

And Retrograde Mars and Mercury Retrograde  have added more complication to a very intense time period.

I have gone through over 30 years of paying close attention to Eclipses, and this is one of the most powerful Eclipse Seasons I have experienced.

I have been witnessing people face some of their worst nightmares; experiencing emotions out of control; early traumas re-triggered;  difficult memories and people returning to them; hard decisions needing to be made. But also for some there has been rapid movement through their issues that led to big awakenings and breakthroughs.

And now, while Mercury and Mars continue being Retrograde, we move this week through ending this most challenging volatile lunar cycle before we experience renewal at the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo.

Time feels to be moving faster during this Eclipse Season, so we all need to take time to be alone in order to process our thoughts and feelings.  And this week the 4th quarter Moon, with Mercury and Mars Retrograde, demands we find inner time to connect with our inner home base in order to prepare ourselves for the fiery Leo jump start next Saturday the 11th.

Allow your deeper soul to come back to center (of course meditation and nature can be great aids for that).  Allow that deeper soul to connect better with source and Universe so you are more ready for the new beginnings at this Leo New Moon Solar Eclipse.

Remember that Solar Eclipses are always New Moons, but they are New Moons on steroids, so to speak.

And since we are experiencing a Leo New Moon Eclipse, we can expect this Solar Eclipse to affect our heart chakra, to want to open that chakra up some more.

Difficulties you run into around this Solar Eclipse may be because your heart has closed from old wounds that caused it to lose trust.

Now there is new energy and information that wants to come through you at this Solar Eclipse.  There is Love and Truth that needs your heart to be receptive.

This Eclipse also seeks to open your heart up so you can shine your light, so you can express your authenticity.

There may be a young child inside you that you have put on a time out.  He or she used to be more alive with spirit shining through.  Wounds, traumas, disappointments, and/or disillusions have tended to close its heart into not trusting.

Now you will have help from the cosmos into opening it up again.  Keep in mind that whoever was a part of the process of you closing your heart and not trusting must be let go inside your self.

It is you now who is closing that heart- not anyone else.  Work with the inner story that holds the key that keeps your heart locked up, the same key that can now unlock your heart and liberate you from the shackles of fear and hopelessness.

This last of the three eclipses of Eclipse Season 2018 will have some torque for moving you forward in your life in one area or another.

Keep in mind however that this New Moon Eclipse sits in a cocoon waiting for Mercury and Mars Retrograde to go forward again .

You will be able to get your life’s motor running with this eclipse, but the Retrograde planets may keep you waiting before the movement goes strongly forward with action or manifestation.

Your creative juices should be alive with this eclipse, and more so if you do not let your ego get in your heart’s way.  That is the Achilles Heel for Leo, its temptation to look too much into the mirror to grade how it is doing?

And remember that feeling you are worthless or no good also relates to your ego controlling you and your ability to shine your light creatively.

The Virgo New Moon this coming September 9, just two days after Saturn goes Direct, is a good marking point for the end of Eclipse Season and more grounded in reality new beginnings.

Out in greater America and the greater world, much is holding on by threads. Under the surface there is much instability and much shifting and changing.

It is the old establishment, which holds the old paradigm, that is breaking down.  There are now rather desperate attempts to keep it propped up, and as more of the new shows itself, more desperate controls and bullying will surface.

As the Trump administration faces more and more scrutiny and more attempts are made for his impeachment, he will likely take desperate measures to fight off these attempts or he will distract attention with events that will rally the citizens, like war.

The Middle East is truly on the edge now and chaos is growing around Israel and the Palestinians, Syria and Iran.

Keep in mind through all the challenging coming events in America and the world, that all the turmoil is related to the shifting tides out of an old paradigm and age and into a new paradigm and age.

And in America the split between cultures is on the verge of igniting into something worse than it already is.

So many families, friendships, and other relationships are in war mode with one another, with no real understanding or respect for one another. As I write this,  a rally in Portland Oregon is happening with far right and far left factions facing off.

Last year, also with a Solar Eclipse in Leo, a similar face off happened in Charlottesville Virginia.

Also the Trump doctrines are separating the United States from its traditionally closest allies, like Canada and Europe.   More separation than ever before is overtaking the United States in its global relationships, including trade wars with Europe and especially China.

Nationalism and Globalism are another facet of this separation between cultures. In a distorted dysfunctional way this is an attempt at finding Diversity Within Unity.

Nationalism is trying to find a country’s individuality without seeking unified connections.  Globalism sometimes looks like everyone giving up individuality for uniformed agreement.

Diversity within Unity is honoring one’s distinct individuality and way of life and at the same time knowing we are all one, all connected.

One should not have to sacrifice one’s authenticity in order to fit in.  But one need not sacrifice one’s needs for finding what unites us all despite our differences.

No pushing agendas this week or desperately needing quick answers or impulsive moves forward.

Early this week, Uranus goes from Direct to Retrograde. So the frequencies of Uranus (liberation, breaking out of boxes or “chains”, awakening, winds of change) will be strong in our energy fields.   

Also Venus leaves Virgo for Libra this week.   Venus in Libra puts emphasis on finding balanced connections between people and following social graces in one’s interactions with others.

All these shifts during the last quarter of the lunar cycle turn into the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11. This Eclipse will be square Jupiter in Scorpio, so this eclipse like the last two is powerful.

This brings a strong energy for moving forward with your heart leading the way. Please keep in mind that intensity will be strong and complete clarity because of the Retrogrades may not come easily.

Till next week

Leo

Navigating Eclipses and Retrogrades and Astrology Forecast July 29- August 5

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 28, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we passed through the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon last week, we entered the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12.

This has been for many people a very difficult last few weeks.  Besides the two eclipses, we have also experienced Mars and Mercury both going Retrograde.

This is a time of inner reflection, of dealing with inner demons and old patterns and stories that are needing to be addressed, resolved, and/or released.

It has been, and continues to be, a ripe time to revisit these old stories, and in the process to find breakthroughs to new ways of seeing those old patterns or stories.

And those breakthroughs can show us to positive transformation for the betterment of our souls and lives.

Nevertheless, being brought back to old stories can seduce us into making decisions or moves that are not appropriate to the current situation.

It is best, in most cases, to hold back from making big decisions or starting new ventures.  It is not the time to act, but instead a time to internally work through the issues.

Many have, through the intensity of these eclipses, experienced these big breakthroughs; but it is more than just eclipses in themselves that have been triggering these transformational times.

The strength of Pluto and Uranus within the last two eclipse formations has provided more power of transformation and awakenings.

So even through the intense difficulties many have experienced these last few week,  in the bigger picture it is all part of deep transformation and change necessary for our growth and evolution.

The Age of Aquarius is calling us all to transform our consciousness, beliefs, and ways in order to be aligned with this New Age.

The only “enemy” in this process is our fear. It is natural to have fear, but it is not good to give in to fear as our master.

Fear takes many forms, but at the core fear takes over when we no longer trust we live in a meaningful Universe that brings us situations that here for a reason.

Do we ultimately follow Love and Truth or Fear?

It is true that even the most spiritual of us have dark nights of the soul when we feel “spirit” has abandoned us or we have abandoned “spirit”.

But in time we have awakenings or “rebirths” that bring us back on our spiritual paths.

It is so easy now to fall victim to fear, as our world seems to be falling apart from our better values.

This falling apart, which will get more intense, is part of the process of transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

I know many of you have experienced a falling apart of your personal lives before, and know that was just part of the process of transformation into a life more aligned with who you really are and are growing into.

And our world and country are going through that now. The big split between cultures in America, which resembles the Civil War in essence, is part of this transformational process that will ultimately make us more whole in alignment with a New Age.

And ending the notion of being superior to other cultures or countries is part of that transformation, as there is no room for superpower countries in the Age of Aquarius..

Empires began at the beginning of the Age of Pisces, in the form of the Roman Empire.  Now for the Age of Aquarius, we are letting go of the world controlling Empires.

Diversity within Unity requires the world to transform into one of more equality between nations and cultures.

The USA Empire of its Military/Economic Complex is dissolving and will hopefully in the process come back to its better values and principles.

And it is thus easy to see how the Trump influence is actually helping the process of the Empire’s downfall. Yes there will still be mammoth attempts to keep the power going, and some of that will likely be quite oppressive to our liberties.

And during this process of American transformation, the impeachment of President Trump is intensifying and becoming more serious.  What Trump does to distract this process is of great concern.

But keep the faith that in the bigger picture all is aligned with the cycles of the Universe..

In the greater world the Middle East is on the verge of igniting into greater conflict.  Gaza was erupting last week, Syria was intensifying, and Iran is now squarely in the cross-hairs of USA and Israel sights.

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius fell right on Israel’s natal Moon in Leo.  Mars was in opposition to that Natal Moon. The signs point to that Lunar Eclipse as an important turning point for Israel.

And transformation of Israel, Palestine and the greater Middle East is important to the transformation of our world into the Age of Aquarius.

Many of the first known civilizations and world wide religions were birthed in the Middle East.  So it is understood why that area of the world is needing of transformation out of old paradigms that run much of the world. The way Israel oppresses the Palestinians is so common to the old age.  And of course Israel was often at the other end of these abuses of power.

As we stated earlier, we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12. And Mars and Mercury are still retrograde.

Now we await the third and last eclipse of Summer Eclipse Season 2018:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11.

Though at that time Mercury will still be retrograde until August 18/19 and Mars will still be retrograde until August 27, there still will be much push for new beginnings at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in fiery Leo.

The big dominating egos on the world stage will be emerging.  Matches will tend to be lit by them, creating world conflict.

In our personal lives however, it is more likely that this Leo Solar Eclipse will ignite creative passions and open hearts.

It will signify a time of new starts and action taken in this New Chapter of your life.

Of course the actual actions may wait in many instances until Mercury and Mars have settled into their Direct positions.

So there is still much time now to go within your psyche and soul, to find out what you really want (Mars) and what you really think (Mercury).

And that Mars in Retrograde will be triggered this week as it squares Uranus, which is slowing down to go Direct next week.  That means there may be a turning point in your quest to know what you want and where you want to go.  But do your best not to run with it, as Mars will still be Retrograde.

Keep in mind during all the intensity and sometime confusion this Eclipse Season, that your soul is searching for its heart’s desires and your mind’s right thinking to help lead the way forward for your life.

That is being worked out now, sometimes unbeknownst to you at a deep level.  But  know that it is and patiently wait till those planets go Direct and the Eclipse Season ends.

After that much will settle in, and you will be in a better position to know what you truly want ( aligned with your higher self) and where you are going.

Till next week,

Leo

Total Lunar Eclipse, Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast July 22-28

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 21, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Powerful tides are shifting this week as there will be another Eclipse as Mercury goes Retrograde.

On Thursday July 26 at 1:02 AM EDT Mercury goes Retrograde. It will stay Retrograde until August 19- when it goes back Direct.

The eclipse this week is on Friday July 27 at 4:20 PM EDT. It is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius.

So energies will be in flux this week, and as a result we will be shifting our thinking and our energy bodies.

Mercury goes Retrograde in Leo, so our way of thinking creatively is shifting.  As with all Mercury Retrograde time periods, we will be changing our perceptions and our ways of communicating.

This changing is often felt rather subtly, but nevertheless people often rethink or question what they have previously decided. And if that happens with you, it is best to wait until Mercury goes back direct before deciding to act on what you have been questioning. And of course waiting a week after it has gone back Direct is the best strategy for making important decisions.

During Mercury Retrograde it is best to not rely too much on linear thinking.  It is usually best to process and reflect, imagine and think inventively.

People from the past often come back into our hearts and minds through our dreams, our waking memories, or actually in the flesh during Mercury Retrograde.

Their re-appearance is meant to help us better understand current situations, especially relationship issues.

So Mercury Retrograde is beginning just before the Lunar Eclipse this week.  And the first couple of days of Mercury Retrograde are often more confusing and disorienting.  

And happening so close to the Lunar Eclipse, which brings increased intensity and disturbance, we may experience events that may seem hard to understand or control.

Like the last Eclipse on July 12, this one is also more powerful than usual. The one on July 12 was closely in opposition to god of the underworld Pluto.

This one on the 27th has Mars closely conjunct the Moon in Aquarius, and Uranus square the Moon in Aquarius and Sun in Leo. That makes an important Fixed T-square formation, one that pulls us in 3 different directions.

The Sun in Leo expresses creative shining and sees itself as the center of attention; the Moon in Aquarius expresses group needs, social needs, and social consciousness.  Mars conjunct that Moon in Aquarius adds much force for the needs of the group or community.  And Uranus in Taurus seeks to break down the usual way of being,  the more conventional approach.

The current teaming up this week for socialism in health plans expressed by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez is representative of what the Uranian and Aquarius ways are all about.

The Sun in Leo represents the executive or presidential controls.

So in your own life it is time to break outside your usual boxes of thinking and being.  You may have only seen a couple of options for solving certain issues in your life. Now you can be awakened to see options you never thought of before.

If you were born in late April, late July, late October, or late January you may be greatly affected by this Eclipse.  If you have any natal planets in early Taurus, early Leo, early Scorpio or early Aquarius you may be greatly affected by this Eclipse.

This eclipse is meant to shake us out of same-old, same-old, same-old thinking or ways of being. It can assist us in letting go of that which does not serve us. It can bring in awakening energies that break us out of old boxes and provide breakthroughs in our consciousness and lives.

This is a transformational time period, one that accelerates our progress and evolution.

It may also feel painful for many, especially those who have been holding on tightly to what needs too be released.

The fixed signs are mostly affected by this eclipse, and those are the signs that tend to hold on and not let go the most.

Aquarius tends to hold onto certain ways of thinking, set ways of being socially conscious.

Scorpio holds onto feelings from the past, especially hurts and resentments.

Leo tends to hold onto a very set ego and way of seeing oneself.

Taurus holds onto many things, especially possessions or that which it claims as its own.

It is time to let go more, and know that the Universe is at our backs and has our backs for transformation.

In the greater world you can see how the USA appears to be falling apart. There are great cultural divisions now, ones that are breaking up relationships and families.  Red and blue state divisions are stronger than ever. Trumpites and non Trumpites are fiercely against one another.

The fiasco last week with Putin and Trump is indicative of how out of balance the USA has become under Trump.

Those wanting to bring down the Trump presidency are feeling more confident they can do it now.  Those attempts will get stronger and stronger now, further breaking down the stability of the nation. It is likely that before too long the increasing chaos for change will be met with more militaristic attempts at control.

Israel is now in the spotlight of Eclipse Season.  It has been severely bombing the Gaza Strip Palestinians, and Palestinian Hamas has been fighting Israel.  Iran and Syria are also potential fighting zones now for Israel.  The Middle East region is ripe for major conflict soon. Russia and the USA presence there makes it all more dangerous.

Remember that the Military Industrial Complex will be threatened over the next few years, especially so when transiting Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn will make conjunction with the USA Natal Pluto in Capricorn in its 2nd house (a symbol of the Military/Industrial complex). This will happen in the early 2020’s.

The Age of Aquarius is busting at the seams of our old age structures.  It seeks to bring to our consciousness the new waves of love and truth appropriate to this New Age.

And now during Eclipse Season these new energies are stronger than usual. As you clear out the baggage that is distorting  your authentic soul self, your inner vessels of receptivity are opened to receive these divine energies from the Age of Aquarius.

There is revolution and evolution roaring in our world now and deep in our souls.  Be with the change. Be with the Love. Be with the Truth.

Do not be frightened by the power displays of the System.  Compared to the vastness and power of the Universe, it is just castles in the sand.

Take a look at this video about Summer Eclipse Season 2018 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QkSNDn0QCg&feature=youtu.be.

There will be a new one in early August.

Till next week

Leo

Time to Move Forward and Astrology Forecast April 15-21.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Yod “finger of god” formation with the USA Mars was exact Saturday morning April 14 at 5:58 AM EDT when Jupiter was sextile with Pluto.

8 or 9 hours prior to that formation France, USA, and Britain starting dropping bombs on Syria.   As we have stated before, that Yod formation brings with it a turning point for military affairs in the USA.

The finger has pointed toward military invasion and that does not bode well for peace in the Middle East.

The Middle East is where the first known civilizations were born: in Sumeria, Egypt, Babylonia.

And that  is where we need the healing now on our way to the New Communities of the Age of Aquarius.

We must purge ourselves of old “eye for an eye” “dog eat dog” mentality. That old paradigm has brought us Weapons of Mass Destruction including chemical weapons, but also nuclear weapons, which wiped out at least 200,000 Japanese at the end of WWII.

It is a Paradigm which must end, and that paradigm is not embodied by just one man or one country.  And using violence to stop violence is so ridiculous it does not need explanation.

So now after this Yod, we have another powerful turning point on Sunday April 15.  That day there is a New Moon in Aries which is closely conjunct Uranus and more widely square Pluto in Capricorn. 

This a launching pad for the New Chapter of life, propelling us much further forward over land we will not see again.

We have been releasing old stories and tapes in our minds and souls, and said releasing has been super deep and rapid at times.

Now we move forward whether we are ready or not.  Do you want to truly move into a new world for your consciousness and self, or do you want to be held back by heavy baggage that will stop you from moving on.

That does mean every shred of baggage must be released now, but it does mean making a strong and deep commitment to the New Chapter with no turning back to be in the “old normal” of the Old Chapter.

You can no longer go back to “normal”.

In the greater world collective we are all a part of, changes have been happening so rapidly it is difficult to hold steady sometimes.  And that will not stop any time soon.

We are in the middle of great world transformation, and we cannot make anything great again, like America,  as it was in the past.

We are creating a New America and New World, and we are getting clear messages now of what needs to end and be released.

And of course there is much resistance from the guardians of the old world, people who have held privilege in that old paradigm.  Those days are gone now, but many hold on with life support systems that barely keep their souls alive.

So the Portal opens on April 15 with the New Moon in Aries in aspect to 2 powerful transformational planets: Uranus and Pluto. That New Moon is at 9:57 PM EDT

But even earlier on the 15th, at 5:21 AM EDT, Mercury turns toward more clarity as it goes Direct again.

So this weekend is a weekend of transition, an important transition.

We begin to leave the darkness and enter more light at the Moon’s sliver of light on the 16th or 17th.  And Mercury will not get back to speed and full clarity for at least another week.

But you can feel the shift now, and yet many events will not show for another month or two.

Then in July/August another Eclipse Season and accelerated transformation again.

But this week is the shift with the Grand Opening on Sunday.

Then on the 17th/18th, Saturn changes directions from Direct to Retrograde.  Its gravitational pull will be stronger, and we should experience the signs that show us there is no room for evasion or escape.  The path is ready for us to walk down.

Saturn can feel like fate when it is strong as it is now, and there may be a sense that some things are meant to happen now, and some things are meant to end now.

But since Saturn is starting to go retrograde now, until September 6 when it goes back Direct, some endings may take awhile to be sure of.  

Around the same time on the 18th, the Sun will conjunct Uranus exactly, triggering the forward movement of the New Moon in Aries that just happened.

Sun conjunct Uranus breaks us out of whatever boxes we are stuck in and liberates us.

It shows rapid change for moving forward.   So we have the seemingly mixed messages of a Saturn stop sign and a Uranus go sign.

So use Saturn to stop whatever or whoever keeps you chained to the past and the baggage of old ways.  The most likely culprit of old ways is inside your own self.

And at the same time take a leap off the Uranus bridge into greater freedom and new horizons.  It is time to be true to your authentic self and move forward with utmost integrity.

On the 19th another shift occurs as the Sun moves into fixed earth Taurus for a month.  Some of the recent intensity will rest into a more solid place.

You can begin to make more practical sense of what has been happening.  You can also begin to manifest what has previously just been an idea.  New beginnings can be more stabilized and strongly set in a real way.

Most importantly now, do not be mesmerized into believing the old stories of monster dictators and evil countries with weapons of mass destruction who must be destroyed to save the world. Remember Saddam and Iraq?

This is what has been used against the masses for centuries to keep the herd under  control by contrived patriotism.

Also be aware of ‘wag the dog” calls for patriotism, so the herd can be distracted from the sins of their leaders. As the Mueller investigation intensifies, distractions are more likely.

It is certainly not uncommon for leaders to distract through conflicts and wars.  This has happened time and again through the centuries.

If you are drawn into those old dramas, it will keep you out of the new paradigm of love and truth that is setting us free.

Do your best not to despair no matter what happens.  All happening with greater meaning as we are shifting and transforming our consciousness into the New Paradigm.

Fear will try to keep you chained in the old consciousness and old ways. Love is knowing all is happening for a reason, and to challenge us to get more certain with our new self and new world.

The transformational process often takes us through dark passages before we awake in the renewed light.  Faith will help your passage, as it will keep even a faint night light on during our dark nights of the soul.

And now the light of a new day dawns with the New Moon in Aries. Yes there are still dark shadow clouds of old ways that may be hovering, but we are nevertheless now ready to move forward!!

Till next week,

Leo
