Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast February 16-22.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on February 16, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are entering a more inward phase of our Soul’s journey this week.

The 4th quarter of the lunar cycle begins in Scorpio today,  February 15,  at 5:17 PM EST.  We stay in this darkening of the Moon until February 23 at the New Moon in Pisces.

The theme of inward journeying continues with Mercury going Retrograde on Sunday the 16th.

As usual, Mercury Retrograde resets our mental functioning.  Logical, analytical thinking is more apt to hit dead ends of “glass half empty” skepticism.

This Mercury Retrograde resetting does often get us to question what has previously been chosen or decided.  That questioning should not be taken totally seriously until Mercury has gone back Direct for several days.

Questioning can be helpful because during that process we may be more moved to cross our ‘t’s and dot our ‘i’s. And to healthily doubt.  Just remember this is Mercury Retrograde time, and finding our Truth is important; but we cannot find it by left brain logic alone.

It is important during the Retrograde time to reintegrate our other tools to finding Truth: Intuition; reading signs from the Universe; dream interpreting; talking with others; etc.

Finding Truth often is about letting the process unfold, knowing in due time all is revealed.  Mercury goes back Direct again on March 10, the same day as the next full moon, the Virgo Full Moon.

During the Mercury Retro period February 16- March 10, we likely encounter people from our past coming back to us.  This may happen in dreams, waking memories, or “in the flesh” meetings.   These encounters may help us understand something or someone in our current life, or give us perspective and insight into our Soul’s needs or intentions.

Adding to the inward turn of consciousness, the Sun goes into Pisces this Tuesday the 18th.

As the Sun moves out of Aquarius and into Pisces, we feel the shift into pure consciousness, beyond mere logical thought.

When one meditates deeply, the mind lets go of its chatter, and we experience “Being”.  There is no need to figure it out or fix it or accomplish anything.

So many of us have felt we are only of value when we are doing, accomplishing, getting things done, etc.

Being comfortable just “being” is a prerequisite for feeling nurtured, safe, and cared for.

We become more vulnerable, yet empowered at the same time.  Some people have not felt the comfort of just “Being” since they were a baby or very young child.

So the Sun being in Pisces, starting on the 18th, has the “intention” of bringing us more into our souls. The water signs are all about soul, most especially Pisces. Of the three water signs:  Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces; Pisces is arguably more about inner-directed Soul travel than the others. This is partly a result of Pisces being less interested in the material world than the other two.

At its best it has us travelling in alternative dimensions, in pure soul travel.

So this week we are in a darkening of the Moon, Mercury Retrograde, and Sun in inner directed Pisces.

It is not a time for pushing forward, for pushing an agenda, for serious mental work.

It is time to process, to feel, to dream, to imagine, to be in your heart and soul, to care, to empathize, to “Be”.

This inward journeying is most important until March 19 at the Spring Equinox in Aries, or even more so at the Aries New Moon on March 24.  And then on April 4 is the powerful Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, which will thrust us forward into action forward.

There is much to process now, after all the shifts, energies, and important events in our personal lives and world since the beginning of 2020 and the Eclipse Season then.

Trump went through Impeachment process; Iran and USA went to the brink of war; Democrat presidential debates and primaries; warnings of potential war in Middle East; Coronavirus fears; and stock market volatility.

It has gotten pretty obvious that our world as it has been in the old Paradigm, is on the verge of falling apart.  There will be great attempts to put band-aids on serious potential breakdowns, especially with the stock market and economy.

Reason for this is because if stock market and economy go down, you can count on current administration not being re-elected.  Economy can be somewhat manipulated to keep afloat with “money being printed” so to speak.

But Nature, and the planets and Astrology are part of that Nature, wins out in the end.

We have learned how to put death “on hold” with machines that keep us technically alive on life support systems.  But death cannot be denied for long.

And the Age of Pisces Old Paradigm is on life support systems now.  But there is a New Paradigm Age of Aquarius with Love and Truth leading the way.

The dark of Death and light of Birth are always moving through our reality here on Earth.  And that duality is especially powerful during these current times, as we are in transition between two Ages, each of 2,160 years.

With that Big Picture as our guide, we know that our trying to keep everything under our  ego’s control is a joke.  Our Higher Soul Self is connected to the Universe and from there we co-create Reality within the laws and destinies of that Universe.

This week we begin almost 6 weeks of pause for inner reflection.  This inner reflection time period will help us all to get back to our Soul Centers.

The challenge of Mercury Retrograde is allowing greater Mind to do its magic outside of our ego’s need to control the thinking process.

Trust the process and all will work out as it needs to-

Till next week,

Leo

Choices and Astrology Forecast February 9-15

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on February 8, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This is a really important year 2020.   In politics, Democrats are choosing who will be their nominee for President of the USA.  Donald Trump is the President now, and if he is reelected the country will be much different than if any Democrat wins.

I know many people are truly “freaking out” that Trump will win and will put a stamp (or tattoo) on America that cannot be erased.

I know that what is happening now and will continue to happen, is meant to be.  We are, each of us,  on this planet at this time for a reason.

America, indeed the whole world, is at a major Crossroads.

What values are our highest values now? What values are we choosing to live by? Who do we want to be?  What do we believe in?

The intensity surrounding these important questions will pick up appreciably in late March/early April as Jupiter makes conjunction with Pluto close to where Saturn made conjunction with Pluto last Eclipse Season in January 2020.

That place is 22-25 degrees of Capricorn.  If in your natal chart you have planets close to those degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Libra and Cancer; you will be greatly affected.

That means that your life is ready for change, the kind of change that will transform you and your soul and your life in important ways.

If you are clinging to the shore of the “waterway” that is delivering you to where you need to go; that resistance will make your life more difficult and painful.

If you can trust enough to be able to let go, and to let spirit and soul carry you down the river; you will get to where you need to be in a more graceful manner.

Whatever you are holding tightly to, must not be right for you anymore (on a deep level you may not readily recognize).

Your Higher Self Soul knows, beyond the ego, what is aligned with you, aligned with the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius.

Our ego self is limited in its scope, the mysteries of life beyond its grasp.

That Higher Soul Self, connected to All and Everyone, has better vision from on High.

Trump was the right president for the time he has been there.  His presence has shined a light on some of the darkness in our hearts and souls, the serious divisions between us.

We are getting more and more clear on what is right for us and what is wrong.

Some of the divisions between us, between countries and religions and sexual orientations, etc., give us a more clear view of the Diversity of humanity in this world.

Brexit and other attempts at nationalism in themselves cause separation that many of us are alarmed about.

The World Wars of the 20th Century showed us how destructive nationalism can be.

But in some way we must be clear about our differences.  At what point do each learn  to respect and honor the differences? Do we need to continue to believe our way is the right way, the best way?

Or can we instead begin to perceive it is right that we are different- Diversity is reality and our Diversity is meant (in our Soul Higher Self) to be a part of the Unity of us All.

Needing everyone to be just like us, as we have found THE WAY, is an old story that has come around too many times. (Hitler sought to eliminate those who did not fit into his superior Aryan Cult).

Those ego stories of the superior peoples is old and stale but still dangerous as hell.

As we eliminate the need to create a hierarchy based on superior/inferior, we open the doorway into Diversity Within Unity in the Age of Aquarius.

This year, and the choices we make, especially for President of the USA here in America, will show the way to an easy or difficult transition into the Age of Aquarius.

Remember that in December 2020, Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius. The month before is the election for President in November.

Our choices will either make the voyage very difficult or relatively more graceful.

As we move past the Leo Full Moon this coming week, we enter the waning half of the Lunar Cycle.  This week is somewhat tame until the last quarter of the Lunar Cycle begins on Saturday the 15th with the Moon in intense Scorpio.

Then next week begins with Mercury going Retrograde on the 16th.  Mars goes into Saturn ruled Capricorn on the 16th also.

That begins a month or so of inner exploration and healing, as the Sun goes into Pisces on the 18th of February, which added to Mercury Retrograde creates even more energy to go inward and to dance more with soul consciousness.

It is time to go deeper and deeper inside, to make connections inside consciousness.

Each of us cannot change where things are moving by ourselves. But we can surrender to what is greater, and as we do, we can get deeply in touch with Who we are authentically.

We can accept who we are without judgment, and then be ready to join with others in their individuality- no need to destroy or feel worse than those who are different than us.

March/April will push us back outside again, ready to bring ourselves into the world more. June brings more Eclipses and more shakeups of status quo, more world events of intensity.

It is essential that the Old World and Paradigm go through some Hell now, clearing the path for a New World and Paradigm.

We will not be taken by fear into the Black Holes of despair.

We continue to embrace the path of Connections, of Unity, of Love.

We continue the path of Individuality, Diversity, of Truth.

We know the connection between the Love and Truth, Between Diversity and Unity.

We know the Yin/Yang symbol of opposites joined in Unity to be a fundamental operation of the Universe.

Till next week,

Leo

Shifting Tides and Astrology Forecast November 17-23.

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting winds this week, with many notable planetary movements.

As the week begins, Mercury is still retrograde, and the Moon is in its darkening phase.

On Tuesday the 19th energies and people intensify, as Mars moves out of “together” and balanced Libra and into instinctual and powerful Scorpio.

Then on Wednesday the 20th, there is some mental relief as Mercury finally goes back Direct!

And the light begins to show itself through the cracks in our fears, as the Sun moves into expansive and uplifting Sagittarius.

The next week on the 26th, there is the light of inspiration pouring in with the New Moon in Sagittarius a day before other-worldly Neptune shifts back to Direct.

Around that time, the first breezes of a new Eclipse Season blow into our collective consciousness and our lives.

The actual first eclipse this “season” is on Christmas Day December 25, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.

As we have alerted everyone, this should be a very powerful and important Eclipse Season for personal and global life.

The changes internally and externally are to transform us to be more aligned with the energies and meaning of the new paradigm from the Age of Aquarius.

Impeachment events; an economy in the danger zone of a dream-world bubble;  war cries from the Middle East; and increased enemy making of China and Russia; our world is on the precipice of enormous transformational changes.

The old Paradigm is so obviously in decay. Its fuel is fear, greed, power abuses and separateness.

The old Paradigm is run with materialism as its guiding star, not truly believing that all the dots in the Universe are connected by higher meaning and love.

Eventually any who give up the notion that we can live in a world guided by the stars of Truth and Love, will go from skepticism to cynicism as time goes by.

And that cynicism breeds corruption, power abuses, greed, and hatreds, as the lights dim before totally going out.

And when grave life difficulties begin to take over, as they are now in the greater world and many personal lives, many people have breaking points into hopelessness and despair.

They stop believing in the god(s) they used to believe in, feel abandoned by them,  and fall into the trap of being a hateful and non-trusting self identified victim.

For many this is their “dark night of the soul”.  For others, hope, trust, and faith just permanently leave.

Our whole world is entering such a Soul and Spiritual challenge.

The old paradigm, governed by materialism, is in its death throes. As it dies, so do hopes for great wealth and privilege. And for many this ends up in cynicism, because the rewards for  playing by the old paradigm’s rules no longer bring the promised rewards.

People losing jobs or relationships can bring many to mental hopelessness.

This is when  transformation shows up.   Some believe in its promises and change their lives accordingly.  Others eventually give up as they cannot give up the old dreams of what was promised as a better life.

The new world promises deeper connections, greater authenticity, a meaningful life, a sense of purpose, Love, community, inner peace, real Truth, connection to soul and spirit,  self love, healing,  a knowing that All is connected on this sacred Earth that resides in this wondrous and magic filled Universe.

What is here now and coming soon will challenge our human family to evolve faster and further than it has previously in our current lifetime.

This week Mars goes into Scorpio on Tuesday the 19th.  This stokes our instinctual desire nature into more passion.   It motivates us to go deeper and see truth we may have previously avoided. It opens us to share our secrets or secret desires. It takes us off the fence of indecision, especially so after Mercury goes back Direct later this week.

Mars in Scorpio will also push some to give up peace efforts and instead to go full force.  This means more chance for war for those leaders still controlled by the old paradigm.

Mars stays in Scorpio until January 3 2020 when it goes into Sagittarius.

Mercury goes Direct on Wednesday November 20 at 2:12 PM EDT. There should be a sense of relief as issues begin to clarify and direction begins to show itself.  But full clarity may not appear for a week to 10 days after.

And on Friday November 22, the Sun moves out of the depths of Pluto-guided Scorpio and into the heights of Jupiter-guided Sagittarius.

Energies seek to rise upwards in your body too, into heart, throat, third eye. and crown chakras.

New inspiration seeks expression; answers appear where only questions used to be; higher meaning is sought; adventures become more attractive; intuition gets stronger; the glass of life  begins feeling more half full again.

Be careful, however, not to leap before you look.  Sometimes, after feeling kinda depressed, we can get carried away by renewed feelings of hope.

Remember that even though Mercury has gone back Direct, the Moon is in its last quarter phase getting darker and darker until the New Moon in Sagittarius on  November 26.

And the Sun is showing less light as it moves closer and closer to Winter Solstice on December 21, just 4 days before the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.

So the increasing darkness, even as the Sun goes into Sagittarius, should make us somewhat cautious still. At this time of year there is both a feeling of joy and upliftment (Sagittarius and holidays) and darkening feelings connected to Winter Solstice.

The coming eclipses and planetary movements promise important shifts of energy patterns, and a releasing of stuck and blocked energies.  Endings could be quite dramatic, even as the seeds of a soon to to be flying Phoenix are planted.

There may be a tarot Tower Card on the world’s horizon, bringing down structures that  represent the old world paradigm.

Till next week

Leo

Trusting the Process and Astrology Forecast November 10-16.

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Sun is still in Scorpio while Mercury remains Retrograde in Scorpio this week.

A large part of our psyche is being brought inward for a view of the “darker” side of consciousness.

Jupiter is bringing  a balance to that, as it remains in the Light of “glass half full” Sagittarius, where it has been for almost a year now.

On December 2, Jupiter will enter gravity inducing Capricorn, where it will stay for the next year or so.

Before that,  Mercury will go back Direct on November 20; and a New Moon in Sagittarius lights up the holiday season on November 26.

And then on December 11, Winter 2019/2020 Eclipse Season begins as a Full Moon in Gemini shows us the early winds from the coming eclipses. 

Two weeks later, on Christmas night December 25, the first of two eclipses burst into our lives:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.

And then on January 10 thru 12,  three  important planetary events bully their way into our lives:  a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer on January 10; Uranus changing directions back to Direct also on January 10; and the powerful Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn on January 12.

So from now till the end of January 2020, we face an important turning point in our human lives. What happens during that period of time will strongly influence the direction of all of our lives.

Be prepared to let die what is ready to go.  If your job or home or relationship has lost its spirit and your heart is no longer “in it”, it may be time to begin to move forward without it.

In many cases, however, there is enough interest to revive the almost dead.  Find a way to get to the root cause, and then work to transform the patterns that keep it lifeless.

I understand how needs for security keep fear “running the show”, which keeps you stuck in that lifeless job or relationship.

Look for the signs and symbols that show you the way.  The Universe is there for you if you truly believe.   The Universe does not abandon us; we abandon the Universe.

If we project our parental disappointments on the Universe, we will not be able to see and appreciate its magical workings.

What our inner child’s ego wants is not necessarily what is best for us and our greater destiny.  We cannot demand we get what we want from the Universe.  Our Soul self or Higher Self is more aligned with our purpose, our karma, our true heart and mind that are connected to the Universe.

The ego can be “at war” with the Universe.  Our soul self is instead connected to the Universe, not obedient to the Universe and not rebelling against it.  It is in co-creation with it.

From your awakened spiritual path, there is a releasing of the ego governed world, and an embracing of the spirit/soul world. There is no killing of the ego; instead the ego learns its place- in service to the spirit self.

This Eclipse Season picks up the pace in our transformational journey.  The energy for letting go of the old chapter and letting in of the new chapter is greater.

For now however, with the Scorpio and Mercury Retrograde energies being strong, we get in touch with what has not been resolved from the past. We search for truth, and in doing so we can let go of our victim mentality.

You may feel you have been victimized, but you are not a victim. And you are not the prey for any predators.  You are capable of owning your power and standing up for yourself.

And not being a prey does not make you a predator.  The whole predator/prey mindset is no longer viable in the new consciousness aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

And you are neither a victim nor a perpetrator.  That is old paradigm. There is a consciousness that takes us beyond that mindset.

We are each a soul connected to a community of souls, each unique and different from the others, but we are all connected like instruments in an orchestra.

Each instrument and voice individualized, but in concert with all instruments and voices, making beautiful music together: Diversity within Unity.

The Sun in Scorpio now is about to make a connected opposition to the waxing (growing) Moon in Taurus on Tuesday November 12 at 8:34 AM.  That makes a Full Moon in Taurus.

The Taurus/Scorpio connection at this full moon shows a need to combine the peaceful solidity of physical Taurus with the intense passion of emotional Scorpio.

Together they may have tugs-of-war at first, each trying to get the upper hand.  But then they hopefully settle into combining their energies- Body and Soul-  And making sexual love is one of its best creations.

After that Full Moon, the Moon enters its waning phase, the light getting dimmer and dimmer until after the next New Moon- in Sagittarius on November 26.

This week, after the Full Moon which promises relational interaction, we experience on Thursday November 14 a softer and more romantic Venus/Neptune connection by square.

Though they are square to one another, there nevertheless is the promise of a sense of romance, one that may need some real communication in order to get beyond the confusion.

Remember this week that Mercury is still Retrograde (until November 20) and as such requires us not to not try too hard to “figure it all out”.  Instead trust the process to unfold, and as it does it will deliver what you need.

Till next week,

Leo

The Unknown Beckons and Astrology Forecast November 3-9

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Sometimes lately everything feels so surreal, or like being in the mystery of the Twilight Zone that resides between worlds or dimensions.

Astrologically, the Sun is certainly now within the confines of Scorpio, a sign that moves through shades and layers of gray and black.

Pluto is the “ruler” of Scorpio, and also Pluto is known in myth as the Guardian of the Underworld.   Mainstream culture has tried for many hundreds of years, especially through its religions, to turn all that is Pluto and Scorpio into Devil and Hell.

And that judgment by many mainstream institutions and religions has pushed the natural energies and frequencies of Scorpio/Pluto further under ground.  From that repressed and controlled state of being, it has been growing in rage.

Scorpio healthy is passion, natural instincts, and a penetration into deeper and deeper realities of the Soul. It understands pain and suffering, and from that empathetic state of being feels deep compassion for those who suffer.

Scorpio/Pluto is the mysteries that are sensed in the darkness, and as such is a natural partner with the Moon, our global “night light” that helps us feel safe.

This fear of the dark, this sometimes obsessive attraction for the dark as well, has led us into degrading sexual behaviors, and abusive power that is often mixed with sex.

The repression and demonizing of Pluto has also had a hand in obsessive needs for power and control. Pluto is the planet most associated with power and power abuses.

And that need for power has brought powerful weapons into our world, most especially nuclear and atomic bombs, which are so dangerous to our lives, as is Climate Change.

Pluto and Scorpio can also represent war, the ultimate power struggle.

In January 2020, along with 2 eclipses, Pluto will be in conjunction with Saturn. The first winds of Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 will blow in around the time of the next New Moon, which is in Sagittarius on November 26.

Back to this week, and for the next few weeks, Scorpio and Mercury Retrograde will be in  our energetic spotlight.

Deep emotional issues may want to come up into your conscious mind and heart now or soon.  A triggering of past traumas is possible.

Fear is the only “enemy” we need to be concerned with.  OK to feel in short spurts, but not good if taking over your mind and feelings.

Dark and Light are natural partners and like the Yin/Yang symbol they are joined in a circle though quite opposite from one another.

Bridges between the opposites is so needed now:  Dark and Light, Male and Female, Straight and Gay, Yang and Yin, and globally between those of the Far East and those of the West.

Remember that our new paradigm is about the connections and unity, but in a new way.

The old paradigm showed unity between people who are all the same.

Now we are on the precipice of the Age of Aquarius, which is about Diversity within Unity.

So now we honor, respect, and appreciate the differences, agreeing to disagree sometimes.

Yet now we are learning from each other, appreciating the differences, and  most importantly not trying to make the other person to be just like us, or vice versa trying to change ourselves in order to better fit with someone else.

We have been created just right, and our being true to our authentic Self is quite right. Original Sin concept keeps everyone controlled by guilt.

And we are learning to be true to our individuality, while at the same time sincerely looking for what brings us together in Unity.

So this week stay aware of Mercury being Retrograde, which may affect you to being kind of spacy- forgetting things.  And also it may be wise to pay closer attention to exactly what we are saying and how people are receiving what we are intending to communicate.

Sometimes we are  almost forced to make big decisions or signing important contracts during Mercury Retrograde. Try your best to avoid, but if you cannot, realize it is meant to be. Then make sure your intuition is involved and your heart has a “say” too.

And while the Sun is in Scorpio and Mercury is Retrograde in Scorpio this week, another  important planetary meeting will take place,

On Tuesday November 5, Mars makes a challenging square to our previously dissected guardian of the underworld:  Pluto

Mars and Pluto together are quite explosive when joined together.

Mars, god of war, in in peaceful Libra, while Pluto remains in Capricorn.Someone with their hand offered in peace or holding a religious book, will collide with the oh so powerful Pluto.

This aspect may just bring warnings, nothing else.  Not sure at this time.  With Mercury Retrograde now in Scorpio time, being impulsive is not good and could bring in some danger.

So please stay present for all parts of your self now.  Though of course we know the bigger picture shows us in transition for a Age of Aquarius, we know that in the smaller picture people let their fears and hatreds take over to create quite dangerous situations.

The current political climate borders on crazy.  And there is no one showing up to be the “grown-up” in the room.  Everyone seems to be mainly concerned with their political group winning while demonizing the other group or party.

Feels to me that we need a wake-up call event to happen.

Hopefully it is not too ferocious an event.

Till next week

Leo

New Moon in Scorpio, Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast October 27- November 2

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on October 26, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

On Sunday October 27, as the Sun and Moon join together at 4+ degrees of Scorpio, we become more aware of the increasing darkness and cold surrounding us here in the Northern Hemisphere of Planet Earth.

This New Moon in Scorpio opens the way to new beginnings, to moving forward in our lives. This may be especially so with issues of passion.  It is a good time at this Scorpio New Moon, to get in touch with what gives you passion.

Without passion, life may feel dull or lifeless.  What do you love to do with all your heart and soul? Now is a good time to find out and to begin whatever it is that gives you that spark again.

This conjunction of the Sun and Moon in Scorpio suggests that the emotional intensity level is increasing, that passions are stirring inside us, that issues of power and “making it real” are becoming front and center in our lives.

To add to the intensity level, Uranus is at 4+ degrees of Taurus, almost exactly opposite that Scorpio New Moon at 4+ degrees of Scorpio.

That Uranus placement symbolizes needs to break away and liberate oneself, from being controlled or dominated or ignored.

Uranus does not need to emotionally process issues as Scorpio often likes to do. Uranus just turns, leaves, breaks free, and allows itself to get outside any boxes in the mind that keep it small, dis-empowered, and vulnerable to any predator types that may be around.

Ironically on the same day of October 27, Mars is square Saturn.

Uranus and Saturn are so different from one another. While Uranus breaks open, breaks out, and liberates; Saturn stops up, contracts, focuses on getting things accomplished, and is disciplined.

Mars square Saturn can feel like there is one foot on the accelerator while the other foot is on the brakes – very frustrating.

So while things are opening up and liberating, at the same time there may be a feeling of being stuck.

Mars is square Saturn early on Sunday the 27th. The New Moon in Scorpio opposite Uranus is at 11:39 PM EDT.

Some issues in your life now may need your patience and self control, while other issues now may motivate you to open up and break free.

Likely in relationships one is needing to break away from too much co-dependence and/or ingrained habitual behavior.

But in the arena of accomplishment and manifesting, more patience and discipline is needed.

The world out there is looking and feeling more and more dysfunctional, corrupt, and filled with venom.

In America and other places too, things seem to be falling apart.  There is little room made for connection between peoples.  There is enemy making and childish “back and forth” insults.

So many world leaders are not even trying to seem fair and and just.  They are not even trying to cover up their selfish agendas or nasty ways.

Trump is the poster boy for what I am saying.  He is not working for any higher purpose. His allegiance is apparently not for the United States or the greater world. It is for moi.  His time is passing soon, however, whether by election or impeachment.

But if you look at places like Turkey and Egypt and China for instance, dominance of their own people is the rule of behavior, not the exception. And the USA, which had been a beacon of light to many people all over the world, looks like a joke or embarrassment to so many people now.

So much is ready to fall apart on the one hand, but is being overly controlled on the other hand. Chaos versus Order is a theme that will appear more and more as we go further forward.

It is pretty easy to see how our world is on the precipice of being reordered and “redrawn”.   The Age of Aquarius is developing under the surface, developing in our hearts, souls and minds. So many all over the world are waking up, but do not know what to do yet.

So this week begins with the New Moon in Scorpio, so close to being exactly opposite Uranus.  There are big changes rolling in now, and we need to be ready to roll with them.

I witnessed so many people this last week dealing with death in their lives, with family, friends, and mostly pets.

Some are not meant to be part of this New Chapter that is about to get more real and intense now.

Later this week Mercury goes Retrograde- on the 31st at 11:41 AM. This day is Samhain, or commonly called Halloween in the pop culture world we  live in.

Samhain is the time of year when the veils between worlds is the thinnest. It is a good time to make contact with loved ones on the other side. It is a good time to go inside your feelings and soul to see what may be going on just below your surface. And it is a good time to stay aware of your dreams and write them down.

The scariest part of the 31st this year, however, is the fact that Mercury goes Retrograde that day.

Mercury retrograde often does feel like one has entered the Twilight Zone during its time in Retrograde.

Slowly during the Retrograde we notice we are starting to question what we were so certain about before. Also we start to be more aware of events and people from our past, who appear in our dreams, our waking day dreams, and truly in the flesh sometimes.

They come back so we can rewind into issues that did not find closure. Or they come back to help us better understand a current relationship or situation.

Or sometimes, though more rarely, they come back because they are wanting to be in our lives again.

Same usual advice during Mercury Retrograde: Avoid having to make big decisions or start up important new ventures during the Retrograde.

Mercury goes back Direct on November 20. Then we start getting ready for Winter Eclipse Season 2019-20.

till next week,

Leo

Strong Full Moon in Aries and Astrology Forecast October 6-12

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 5, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Is that light we seem to be seeing at the end of the tunnel real or the result of tampering? Knowing what is real or not real is not as easy to ascertain as it used to be.

Are the facts we are presented real or made up?

Who is telling the truth and who is not?

With the ability to alter a picture or a film, is what one is seeing real or not?

Listen to news show and hear the spin that news commentators use to persuade you, not inform you.

These are the tools that the old age and paradigm “use” to keep consciousness confused and stuck.

“Stuck and confused” is somewhat similar to “divide and conquer’ as both conditions dis-empower, break apart, and leave people feeling separate, weaker and more vulnerable to bullying and power abuses.

Therefore coming together as confident participants in a new global community paradigm has big challenges.

If this sounds like paranoid ravings about a deep state or some other projected enemy, that is not my perception or intention.

This is all happening inside our human collective consciousness, in my estimation not from some horrible enemy from the material world.  The horrible enemies result from our soul struggles.

The old paradigm does not let go voluntarily.  The new paradigm is not embraced so easily. We battle with ourselves.

Our ego self is used to running the show, and it certainly runs the old paradigm.

The “Authentic Higher Self” is guided by Soul and attached to the Universe and its natural cycles, energies, and patterns.

We have been taking some time to acknowledge, try on, and accept this new paradigm and each of our purposes’ within it.

We have decisions to make, directions to take, and most importantly commitments to adhere to.

Prior to the next Mercury Retrograde it would be beneficial to know where we are going, when we go, and how to we do what we need to do.

Mercury goes Retrograde on October 31 (Samhain/Halloween), and does not go back Direct until November 20. Two days later on November 22, the Sun goes into free spirited Sagittarius.

Then on the 26th there is a New Moon in adventurous Sagittarius, followed by mystical Neptune going Direct on November 27.

Then in mid December, Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 begins. The highlight of that eclipse season is a very powerful Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn exact conjunction on January 12, 2020.

That conjunction is two days after a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer.  And that Lunar Eclipse is just two weeks after a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on Christmas Day 2019.

Time has been marching forward since Saturn went Direct on September 18, and deep transformation has been revving up its engines since Pluto went direct last week October 2.

That means that Saturn and Pluto now are going straight forward, without interruption, toward their date with destiny on January 12 2020.

You can easily see how much is already being shaken up in our world on the way to that conjunction.

Collective sanity is being eclipsed by a world that is falling apart at the seams, and yet pretending all is as it should be, and that the pendulum will swing back in the other direction before too long.  Sanity and decency will return and all will be normal again.

The old normal is forever gone. The pendulum is becoming obsolete and broken now.

We are starting up a New Chapter in a New Paradigm.

And with Pluto and Saturn starting their Direct route together toward their 2020 conjunction, we can concentrate on our own transformational journey.

This week begins with the 2nd quarter of the Moon’s phase, with the Moon in Capricorn on October 5.

Then on October 7, Mercury in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus.  It is wake up time, no more time for slumber, little time left for sitting on the fence of indecision.

Our main choice now is in who will lead you now? Is it your ego or your higher Self?

We need commitments now, no more wishy-washy.  Choosing the Higher Self seems more risky as the ego’s semblance of being in control feels more secure than the kind of surrender that the Soul requires.

Higher Self does not require figuring it out by straining our left brains.  Higher Self prefers being part of natural unfolding by following the “yellow brick road”, so to speak.

There is a trust and faith required in letting go and allowing natural Universal cycles and symbols to guide us.

And with a big turning point ahead of us next Eclipse Season this coming December and January, we need to experience maintenance of our inner hearts and souls.

On Tuesday October 8 this week, Venus goes into Scorpio, causing our relationships to get more real, to be expressing from a deeper soul passion.  If any of your relationships have been stagnant or forced to be merely pleasant, holding back truths, they will “get down” now into more intensity and depth.

Mars in Libra opposes Chiron in Aries on the 8th also.  This is another sign that needs to keep the peace are challenged by energies of power and force.

That same theme plays out at the Full Moon in Aries (Sun in Libra) on Sunday the 13th.  That Full Moon is at the same cardinal sign 20+degrees- this time in Aries.  Pluto changed directions at 20+ degrees of cardinal sign Capricorn last week.

If you have any planets in Aries, Libra, Cancer, or Capricorn, at between 17 and 23 degrees, your life is moving through a turning point of some kind around this Full Moon in Aries.

And Pluto is closely connected inside this Full Moon in Aries, as it is still at 20+ degrees of Capricorn, very closely square the 20+ degree Full Moon in Aries.

You are being pushed off the fence of indecision.  Time to choose. Resistance causes pain and suffering.

Higher Self or Ego Self? You are choosing your own destiny. This is not about killing the ego! It is about putting the ego in its place.

That place is as a subordinate to your Higher Self, which is connected to All.  You may not feel as much in control that way, but you will feel more aligned, lighter, free, and expressing your authentic Self.

Out in the mainstream ego controlled world, culture war ramps up with the impeachment process.  And watch out for Israel and the Middle East.  China and North Korea versus the USA will take a new turn soon also.

And you have to know that the Stock Market and Economy are in danger of a significant crash soon, very likely sometime this Autumn or Winter.

The Saturn/Pluto conjunction in January promises a destruction of old world ego dominance.

The primaries for Democrat candidate for President of the USA will be intensifying greatly, as we get closer to the first caucus in Iowa in February.

My beginning steps at predicting the Democrat’s candidate for President have begun. A quick look at the candidates showed me Warren, Mayor Pete, and Harris as having the charts most aligned for winning the nomination. I will continue to analyze, and hope to give you a final prediction in the next few weeks.

I also will examine more closely charts of countries and world leaders, so we can get a feel for what may happen around the globe in the next few months.

In the meantime keep feeding the knowing that all is divinely guided. We are in transition between Ages. December 2020 is a major turning point into the Age of Aquarius.  Synchronistically, the USA Presidential election is a mere month prior.

This week contains a very strong and important Full Moon in Aries with Pluto prominent. Trust the Process.

Till next week

Leo
