Autumn Equinox and Astrology Forecast September 16-22.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

2018 Summer Eclipse Season has ended, and late this week Summer itself will end.

As the curtain comes down on the summer of 2018, we find ourselves in a personal New Chapter of our lives.  

That New Chapter is much more than the ending and beginning of nature’s seasons.

It is truly about entering a new and important era of our personal lives.

And it is truly about entering a new and important era of our collective life, both our global and American lives.

Most important in this new era is that this new era has at its core  the values you believe in.

Then after you have put your heart values and mental principles as your guiding light in this New Chapter, you have automatically built the foundation for the New Chapter you are entering and building.

Have you totally accepted this new era of your life?  Do you recognize you are truly in a new era or chapter of your life?

I know everything is feeling different inside for many.  The usual connections inside each of us are shifting.  The old normal inside us is gone.

And of course our personal lives are the micro to the macro of our greater world and Universe.

And as the wheels of the Universe turn into new territory, so too are we personally turning into new territory.

And as the societies of America and the world change, as they are beginning to do rather drastically, each of our souls is also being called to make deep transformational change.

It is obvious that the United States is slowly leaving its soul, and forgetting about the lofty principles it was founded on.

So deep transformation into an Age of Aquarius requires each of us individually and all of us collectively to make sure we are living by these standards.

Our “better angels” can guide us forward through this new terrain now.

Our American lives are so in the middle of deep transformation.  And the culture wars in the United States are bringing out the worst in people, on both sides.

People will lie and cheat to make sure their chosen agenda will win. To them the end justifies the means.  Do you believe that?

Hitler believed that exterminating those who did not fit his paradigm for how the new human should be and look like was OK to do.

“Kill or be killed” is how our politicians  are thinking and acting now.  The bloody fight, over who the next Supreme Court Justice will be,  is way over the top.

We need to return to our deeper values and deeper sense of what is right and wrong now.

The picture is much bigger and deeper then judges or political parties or religions.

Yes we need to stand up for what we believe, but we do not need to demonize and crush those who believe differently.  Trust me, those people you are demonizing also demonize you.  That alone should tell us something important. They believe what you stand for is evil and wrong, as you believe about them and their values.

We are on the verge of total war between American cultures, and total war between countries too.  And demonizing is what governments tend to do before attacking. It was Saddam Hussein, then Gadafi,  then Kim Jong Un, and now Bashar Assad president of Syria. And it will keep going after others whose countries we want to bring into our vision of how a country or culture or person should be.

This is how religions often act too. Each one believes it has found “The Way”. and their god is the true god.

Respecting each other’s differences is so Age of Aquarius, and that attitude shows the best of being Aquarius.

Now Trump is on the verge of real action from people who want to get rid of him as president.

And of course he is not a great example of being American, human, or a man.

Nevertheless, our very deep problems in America will not be eliminated if Trump leaves office. The Pence administration might make the culture wars exacerbate even more.

Trump’s presence has brought these culture wars for the soul of America come out in the light for all to see.

But the war will still be alive until we the people realize that all these people, no matter what agenda they carry, are Americans, and even more importantly Humans.

The Middle East is really on the edge of great conflict now, so let us hope leaders will pull back from that edge.

This week we are in the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle that began at the Virgo New Moon on September 9.  So energies are waxing in the lunar cycle, allowing us to feel we are moving forward in its regard.

But the solar cycle is about to show us an important turning point in the year, a turning point that points us to more yin or dark energies.

That solar cycle take us to the Autumn Equinox, which begins the time of Sun in Libra.

Autumn Equinox is on Saturday September 22 at 9:54 PM EDT.

Light and dark, yin and yang, male and female are equal at the Autumn Equinox.  Yet right after that moment, darker, more yin and female energies begin to expand their presence.

Metaphorically Autumn Equinox is like a sunset time of day,  in between light and dark.

The Sun’s yearly voyage through Libra begins at the Autumn Equinox also.

Most aptly with the Autumn Equinox, Libra is the scales of balance, scales of justice too.

Libra is most drawn to relationship, the “best” ways of being social or being in a society.

It seeks all to be lovely and fair, and it can be a great mediator or diplomat.

Is is usually very accommodating of others, sometimes to a fault as it often loses its Self in the process.

Libra really cares about things being fair or just, and about issues working for everyone, not just one person.  Libra is quite able to make everything symmetrical and color coordinated and pretty too. It likes things to be pleasant and peaceful.

So as this coming week comes to an end at the Autumn Equinox, it is a time to begin to shift away from more self centered attitudes and ways of being.

Instead it is time to listen better to others, to think of social values, to be more peaceful and ready to negotiate or compromise.

Perhaps out in the world, in America, in the Middle East, and elsewhere, there will be attempts to work harder to make peace and harmony between people.

There could be some surprises or shocks coming early to mid week, as Mars in Aquarius squares Uranus late Tuesday.

That is meant to be some kind of wake up call that shows how to think and move “outside the box”.  That wake up call may tend to show new ways to solve old problems.

Mars/Uranus contacts also can show rebellious behavior, and radical action.  World events that shake things up and get us thinking differently than we are used to are more likely than usual.

Till next week

100% Real and Astrology Forecast September 9-15

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on September 8, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Summer Eclipse Season 2018 pretty much ends on Sunday September 9, at the New Moon in Virgo at 2:01 PM EDT.

It was one super intense Eclipse Season ride with 3 eclipses and both Mercury and Mars Retrograde.

Transformation was deeply experienced by many.  Old ways of relating and thinking were questioned.  Awakening energies were strong, taking people outside old boxes in their minds and lives.

Any shakeups of your life or thinking were meant to take you out of the status quo, same-old habits that kept you cruising in your stuck-ness.

We should be over the hump of any tentativeness this week, and ready to take on whatever comes our way now in our New Chapter of life.

There is no returning to the old normal anymore, instead we are moving further forward toward a new normal. Right now, however, many are “in between”.

Even if outer circumstances have hardly changed in our personal lives, nevertheless there is a feeling of being in a different zone inside ourselves. And intuitively there is a knowing of much change on the way.

Eclipse Season and the Retrogrades shook us up, now we get ready for the changes that result from that time period.

And this New Moon in Virgo represents our movement forward after Eclipse Season.  Neptune is opposite that New Moon in Virgo, so movement forward is slow, slowed down by a need to surrender to unseen forces and to let go of needs to control or keep with a strict agenda.

Virgo finds “what’s wrong with this picture”, zeros in on what is not right or perfect or in order, and then looks for the remedies.

Virgo is directed to the physical world as it is an earth sign, so what it senses is out of order is usually our physical possessions, our bodies, our equipment, our houses, or our physical environment.

Virgo seeks to mend, fix, doctor, heal, put together, maintain, order, realign, and/or make more efficient in our physical world. It feels its purpose when it is humbly of service to others or a cause.

Neptune however trusts in the deep process of soul, and allows for magic to help find the way.  It is connected more to soul than physical, so this New Moon helps us to bring together body and soul, logic and imagination.

For many now, before they are ready to truly leap on the train of fast forward movement, they need to get right with some things in their life.

In our global world and here in America, it is obvious that we are in a new zone.  The Trump factor has shown us even more during the passing Eclipse Season that we cannot go back “home” again.

We must develop a new sense of what is right for us, what is home base inside us.

The world is looking so much different than before, and soon events will unfold that show us how far from our old “home” we have traveled.

We are in a new zone, a new chapter, a new era, a new world.  And as ugly as it looks and feels sometimes, it has awakened us, and helped us to leave an old paradigm that was dying long before Trump came to town.

Trump World has been showing us the underbelly of the old paradigm.  It is like how the mafia has always shown us the dark side of American values.

And now we are seeing how messed up we have collectively become because of our inner demons of  fame, wealth, status, bigotry, narcissism, revenge, and a sense of privilege and superiority.

Trump World brings our demons to the surface. We are the ones who must decide how we handle these American shadows.

If we each fight our demons with demonic hatreds and bigotries of our own, we perpetuate that which we say we want to rid ourselves of.

Trump World will pass, but if its existence makes us more cynical, hateful, and hopeless, we have enabled it to win over our hearts and souls.

So we need to dig deep to find the better angels of our country’s and our own values. And with those as our foundation, we can create a New World, New Paradigm and New Age.

And for now this week, we move forward with Virgo values in mind.

Virgo has the Virgin as its symbol. That Virgin represents purity and perfection, as both we humans and our Earth started out.

And then after we left  our “Garden of Eden”  innocence, we decided to see the world “out there” for ourselves. And we then got muddied and our Earth has since been soiled with impurities we have given it.

Now we must reach for the Sky with our feet on the Earth, in order to reclaim the natural pure values from our Universe and Earth.

Yet also with the street-smart wisdoms we have gained from our experience on the streets of our human experience,  we can help those who have lost their way from “home”.

As we gather our lost souls, return to our “better angel” values including the Universe’s pillars of Love and Truth, we come together to heal our unified human family on our beautiful and sacred planet Earth.

So use the Virgo energies now to see what is wrong, and then purify, heal, mend and fix what has been broken in your own life.

That New Moon in Virgo on September 9 is accompanied by Venus going into Scorpio that day also.

So Venus leaves the balanced and civilized Libra, and enters the Scorpio world of primal passions and deep experience.

So if your relationships have gone on cruise-control, now with Venus in Scorpio you will begin to “get down” into what is real and what needs to be transformed in those relationships.

Venus will be in Scorpio for an extended period of time as it will go retrograde on October 5, go retro through the end of Libra again, then back again into Scorpio until early in 2019.  So deep passionate relating is in the stars for us for awhile.

Old patterns that keep us apart from intimacy will seek to be transformed. Either new patterns or new relationships are in the near future.

Also this week, there will be more getting down into the “nitty gritty” as the Sun in Virgo makes aspects to Jupiter in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn. And Jupiter in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn exactly sextile one another mid-week.

There is no escape this week from what is real and deeply meaningful.

Venus, newly in Scorpio, makes an opposition to Uranus in Taurus on Wednesday the 12th, and that will mean wake up time for relationships this week.

And also with the Moon in Scorpio most of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week, it seems that much will be uncovered this week.  And in that process deeper issues will be processed by ourselves and in our relationships.

Issues and potential conflicts in the greater world that have been building, will tend to be brought to a head this week, and it could get ugly.

This is especially true for the Middle East and Trump World.

And in that outer world, but also in our personal lives,  much more is coming out, coming to a head, and then released and purged.

Do your best this week, with the prevailing energies, to keep things simple and real. Escapism will not work well this week.

Till next week,

Leo

Navigating the Changes and Astrology Forecast July 1-7

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on June 30, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have now slipped into Summer Eclipse Season 2018, though we are about a week away from the first of three eclipses:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12.

Mars went Retrograde last week (where it will stay until August 27), so getting clear about what one really wants and where one really wants to go may be rather illusive for the next couple of months during Eclipse Season.   And Mercury will be going Retrograde on July 26 making matters even more foggy after that.

Eclipse Season will begin to intensify next week with the Solar Eclipse in Cancer.

People sometimes get into fear mode in expectation of Eclipses. Yes Eclipses represent powerful times, but that power is for change, and not usually for personal disaster.

Yes one’s status quo comfort zone will likely get shaken up, but the purpose is to get one to “be on one’s toes” in anticipation of transformation and change.

There can be breakdowns of old ways that no longer serve you, yet there are also usually breakthroughs into new ways to perceive, new consciousness, new ideas, new ways of being in one’s life.

It is really “normal” to try to hold onto what feels like security and stability for as long as one can, even if another part of us knows and wants change.

So the Universe creates events that will help us to get “unstuck”.   And the degree of intensity for change that we receive is in direct proportion to how stuck we are, whether we know it or not.

If we are ready (our deeper soul) for our greater potential destiny of purpose, we will be brought events that will assist us in letting go of that which is holding onto our past, the passing Chapter of our lives.

Right now with all the changes in the greater world, we are each a microcosm of that world change.

The changes that are coming our way are bringing us into a New Life Chapter, a chapter that has different purpose, new relationships, new work focus, and even perhaps new living situations.

A huge portal opened up into this New Chapter on April 15 this year, and there is still much pouring through that portal for us collectively and individually.

And now during this new Eclipse Season, there is an acceleration of energies of change and transformation, which means there is more push toward making life changes aligned with this New Chapter on Earth for the human family.

It is time to let go to another level, to release where one used to be with one’s life.  And it is time to open one’s heart and mind for the new waves of change wanting to pour into our worlds.

That does not mean you have to throw all security and stability away;  in fact it is helpful if you can keep your feet on the ground no matter what is changing and transforming.  Some things from your present life will be taken with you into the New Chapter.

So as we navigate through this Summer Eclipse Season 2018, we need to keep our heads up looking for meaning and perspective, not down in fear dreading what is coming our way.

The Full Moon in Capricorn this past week signified the beginning of Summer Eclipse Season 2018, but it also begins the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Gemini on June 13.

So we are winding down while we are gearing up.  Signs and symbols showing us the meaning of Eclipse Season this summer are and will be appearing.

Most of the changes will not be a complete surprise, as issues showing potential change have been already percolating.  What is happening for this Eclipse Season are events and motivations that assist us in releasing what we are have been holding too tightly.

It will also help us to let in the new without so much resistance.  It is becoming more clear now what needs to shift and change, but the energy for that change has not been strongly here for us.

These next couple of months will give us more energies for change, and will bring issues to the forefront for us to acknowledge and work with.

Keep in mind that with Mars and soon Mercury being Retrograde, we may need to process more before moving fully forward with the changes.

Leaping before we look and not examining the red flags that show is not a good idea.  Yes energies of change and transformation are and will be swirling through our consciousness and lives, but it is important to cross our t’s and dot our i’s as we go through the process of change.

In the greater world, there is so much changing. The “civil war” between very polarized American cultures will intensify.  Extremists will make an even greater impact on our world.  Both major American political parties are fractured, dysfunctional, and too much controlled by monied interests and corporations.

We need to return to “we the people” and you can see how much will need to change for that to happen.

The “power structures” of our world are in the process of deep transformation as well. Trade wars, immigration issues, and new alliances are shifting the power balance in our world.

The Middle East and Far East Asia are the areas of our world that are most susceptible to conflict and power struggles.

Keep in mind that the Age of Aquarius requires a Diversity Within Unity world network for its lifeblood.

The Military Economic Complex Empire of this world will go through destructive forces meant to transform our world into a “we the people” economy and a “power structure” based on equality.  For instance the UN gives more say and power to the countries with the most money and weapons of mass destruction.  This must change.

It is certainly easy to see how much will have to change in order for us to manifest that new world and Age.

This week Chiron changes directions from Direct to Retrograde on July 4. Chiron is a bridge between the outer transformational planets and our more traditional planets from Saturn on in.  Chiron’s bridge helps us heal from that split between our divine self and our more creature self.  Humans are from both the Sky and Earth, so to speak. Our ancestors are also from both places, not just the Earth.

As Chiron goes retrograde this week in Aries, we are reminded how the healing between  these different aspects of Self can best be actualized when we are true to how we were created, not trying to be what we are programmed to be to “fit in “.

This week shows us the beginnings of Eclipse Season, and next week will show us the first of 3 eclipses on July 12: A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer very closely opposite Pluto in Capricorn. That is a very powerful and intense configuration.

Till next week,

Leo

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

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on June 23, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo

Pluto Releasing the Old and Astrology Forecast April 22-28

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This past week we entered a whole New Chapter of both our collective  and personal lives.

That does not mean that it has been or will be smooth sailing now. In fact for many people there were already obstacles to work through after that New Moon in Aries last week.

Gravity ruling, “stop sign” Saturn was especially strong last week too. And though Mercury went Direct on the same day as the New Moon in Aries, for many people full clarity has not been found yet.

It takes Mercury several days after it has gone Direct to return to its usual speed, and during that time the fog may just slowly lift from our view ahead.

Make no mistake however, we have turned a corner, and are now moving forward in a new phase of life.

There is some purging to be done now, however, as Pluto has been slowing down in order to go Retrograde on Sunday April 22.

So we have been experiencing Pluto’s energy the last couple of days and will continue  to do so much of this coming week.

Pluto is a very passionate and intense ruler of the underworld, and as such brings us down into the subconscious so we can be more more conscious of what is needing to be experienced and hopefully released.

If you are drawn this week to look at the past, past events, and past patterns of thought and behavior, it is happening so you can release, let go of what is not in alignment in this New Chapter.

You do not need anymore the same old inner stories that have become heavy baggage in your consciousness and life.

So use this time now to let go of your grip on that which is weighing you down psychologically, emotionally, spiritually and/or physically.

We will in late Spring be moving much more rapidly through this New Chapter, which is in essence a new frequency and dimension in our consciousness.

But for this week, Pluto changes directions Sunday the 22nd, and then on Thursday the 26th Mars collides in conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn.  This is potentially a very intense and powerful meeting between these two planets.

And approximately 3 days before that Mars in Capricorn sextiles Jupiter in Scorpio.

Those two planetary events trigger the Jupiter sextile Pluto aspect of April 14, which formed a Yod or “finger of god” with the USA natal Mars. 

Less than a day before that Yod, Syria was bombed by western nations, which points the finger to potential war in the Middle East.

But on the contrary, peace ostensibly looks more promising in Korea, as North Korea made some big compromises prior to its coming meetings with South Korea and the USA.

This week North Korean and South Korean leaders meet in a summit on April 27.  With the triggering of the Yod this week, we will get a better sense of where the finger is pointing on the Korean Peninsula- toward or away from USA conflict.

Of course the issue of gun  ownership, and the issue of police killings of black men are also part of this turning point around the USA Mars in the “finger of god” alignment now. Pay close attention to what direction all these issues are turning toward this week.

In personal lives these Plutonian interactions will tend to bring up old stories and patterns, and could also bring up more volatile emotions, especially between people in relationships.

Please do your best to know these events are happening in order to help to purge what needs to be let go. Perhaps you may feel you are being taken back to old stuff you thought had been resolved or released already.

But what is coming up is not you going backwards, it is instead an opportunity for a deeper cleaning to occur inside your mind and soul.

Also the intensity may be rising in order to help you make transformational breakthroughs that are important on your path through this new phase of life.

The old energies, stories and patterns want to be transformed into new consciousness and ways, and you can be proactive in the process if you stay conscious and aware.

Is it not totally apparent now how much everything is shifting, changing, and transforming? It is beginning to feel like the ’60s and ’70s may have been mild in comparison.

This current wave of change is not for the opportunity to put bandages on old issues so we can later go back into the same old dysfunctional ways.

Our world is transforming in ways we cannot completely comprehend yet. And each of our lives is transforming as part of that process.

Relationships especially may be rocky now, as we navigate balancing our rapid individual growth with trying to stay connected in our relationships.

It may not be totally apparent how to achieve that balance or sometimes even to know whether the relationship will last.

Will the New Chapter keep you together or will it need to bring you on separate paths?

Some of you have already been given some indication which way that is turning now, but others need more time to be able to feel more certain.

This week has some volatility and releasing necessary, but also with the Taurus influence there is a firming up of what has previously begun.

Aries is a force for moving forward, like buds coming through the branches in springtime.

Yet Taurus, where the Sun and Venus are now, stabilizes and allows to blossom what has begun.  So for the most part the month of May will stabilize, manifest, and make more solid.

Then in June, with the energies of Gemini strong, we move faster forward through our New Chapter.  Events will pour much faster through that portal that was opened at the Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus on April 15.

That was a turning point weekend for us individually and globally.

In May/June we will have a much better sense of where the Trump investigations are going. We will also know much more where the Middle East is going and where the Korean situation is going. There are many important events already scheduled for those months for those issues.

This week also has some lighter energy coming in as Venus leaves Taurus and enters Gemini on Tuesday the 24th. It will stay in Gemini until May 19.

Venus in Gemini brings with it light social interaction, more mental agility in relating, a desire for more talking and communicating, and generally also more flirting and light teasing.

That should lighten the focused intensity this week that will also be present at the usually profound Full Moon experience on Sunday April 29. It is a Scorpio Full Moon which is also called the Wesak Full Moon, often related to the birth of Buddha and Buddha light rays coming through our human experience.

Contact Deborah Tallarico at moonsoul9@aol.com for more info on joining the online global ceremony at the Spiritual Renaissance Center for that Wesak Full Moon.

We will write more about that Scorpio Wesak Full Moon next week.

Always keep in mind that the transformation we are experiencing, as challenging as that  is sometimes, is bringing us into the consciousness and ways of the Age of Aquarius.

This New Chapter we have entered is an important vehicle in time that is moving us more strongly into the new dimensions and frequencies of that New Age.

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

Beginning Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast January 14-20.

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

A portal opens this week to initiate Winter Eclipse Season 2018.   Though the first actual Eclipse is a couple weeks away, the New Moon in Capricorn January 16 marks the energetic opening of Eclipse Season.

These last few weeks have been rather difficult for many as the recent prevalence of Capricorn/Scorpio energies has tended to drop people into what is real and needs to be processed or acted upon.  There has been little room for escape or distraction.

And energies have been kept down and inward as we have been in the 4th quarter part of the lunar cycle this last week.

But you will have more energy to move actively forward after January 16 at 9:17 PM EST. at the Capricorn New Moon.

As all planets are also going Direct now, that adds to the ability to move forward; this continues until March 8 when Jupiter goes Retrograde.

This New Moon in Capricorn is the  first New Moon since Uranus went Direct on January 2,  which began the movement of All Planets Direct.

So this is a significant New Moon, especially so as it begins Eclipse Season.

New Moons always bring energy for starts, new beginnings, action and movement.   And as the Full Moon brings climax and/or some resolution to what begins at the New Moon, one can see how the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on January 31 is an extension of the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Capricorn this week.

So what begins for you or begins in the world this week, after the New Moon in Capricorn, will give indication of what Eclipse Season will tend to bring.

Capricorn is the sign “ruled” by Saturn, and as such signifies “It is Time”.  There is really  nowhere else to go when it is time.  Saturn is considered by some the hand of fate.   Whether that fate is determined by some force outside ourselves, or is meant to be by  karmic “what goes around comes around” reality is open to one’s interpretation.

Capricorn is also the best sign for making a certain goal, organizing plans to accomplish that goal, and having the discipline to carry out that plan.

Capricorn is used best if the plan is carried out step by step, more methodically than impulsively.

You are ready now to make real your dreams and ideals, your goals and desires.  Only you can stop that train from beginning its journey now. Just keep in mind that the plan will take time to fully unfold and manifest- no  quick fixes.

In the greater world look for clues as to what this eclipse season will bring. Look for hints in the stock market and economy, look for signs of what will  happen in the Middle East and Korea.

That does not mean to focus on those events, but from a detached place to recognize what may happen in the 3D world, as some call it.

Your focus is best placed on your soul’s journey and the bigger picture of what is transforming in your life and in the world.

Those likely chaotic events coming to the world are part of the process that will take us to our new world and Age of Aquarius.

Donald Trump is in the world to be a catalyst for great change and transformation.  His presence is taking us outside old boxes and awakening us to what has been wrong in our world and country.

He represents much of what needs to change, and how we need to stand up for what we believe, no matter the pressure to give in.

Ultimately we are learning to connect the opposites, and connect the dots in the Universe to find meaning in all situations.

Dark and light, male and female, yin and yang, homosexual and heterosexual, all meant to be connected though inherently so different. This is the core of Diversity within Unity, a call phrase for the Age of Aquarius.

So  if you let hate run your attitude you are severing the threads that connect.  That does not mean being all nice and sweet. Of course you need the passion to fight for what you believe and what you are;  but just like in a good family you keep the thread of connection inside yourself no matter how estranged or angry you become.

Though it is hard to see sometimes, we are all members of the  human family, even though  you may be among those who are beginning to mutate into being a more evolved version.

If we keep the US versus THEM paradigm, we will eventually destroy ourselves and the planet, as weapons of mass destruction are spreading all over the globe.

Finding what unites us, even though so different, will bring sanity and  peace to the world.

Do we need to be taken to the edge before we collectively wake up?  Soon we will know the answer.

Just before the New Moon in Capricorn, energies will already become more active, as Uranus squares Venus and the Sun, while Jupiter makes an intense sextile to Pluto.

Uranus is strong Saturday and Sunday and Jupiter/Pluto Monday and Tuesday.  That means surprises, and wake up  calls (Uranus), and intense stirring of passions (Jupiter/Pluto).

Remember that Eclipse Season is beginning now, getting us ready for the actual eclipses.  Eclipses shake things up out of same-old, same-old, and tend to bring breakdowns of the old habits and patterns, and/or breakthroughs into new realms, new vistas and dimensions.

Have you noticed the increased focus on extraterrestrial and UFO’s in the mainstream of society lately?  That egg is just starting to crack open now.

We will of course give greater attention to Eclipse Season now.  In that regard please check out this video forecast I just created: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyIVxnMPGzI&feature=youtu.be

It is time for the intensity of transformation to increase. It is time to be even more committed to your Higher Self and the path into a New Age. Pressures to be fearful and/or hateful will get even stronger this Eclipse Season.  Stand up for what you believe in, but do not make hated enemy. It keeps the old paradigm alive.

Trump will tighten up his defenses as pressure on him increases. There is no telling what he will do when backed into the corner of possible impeachment or otherwise attempts to “dethrone” him.

Sure seems like his soul has been here before (emperor, king) and so have we been here before with dictators, kings, queens, etc

The Age of Aquarius makes necessity for “we the people” to be responsible for the world and human family, not a team of the privileged few who abuse power to take what they want from the Earth and our human family. That paradigm is getting ready to die; and not just the few, indeed all of us have been playing its game for hundreds of years.

We all are responsible for the creation and perpetuation of that old paradigm, and we all are responsible for co-creating the new paradigm.

Till next week when we look more closely at Trump’s chart for coming events.
