By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week should be much tamer, and less stressful and intense than it has been over the last several months.

For those of you affected by the current Venus Retrograde movement, however, relationships may still bring you some intensity and perhaps stress.

The week starts out this Sunday with a Full Moon in Virgo, which means that the Sun is in Pisces and is directly opposite the Full Moon in Virgo.

This Full Moon in Virgo is at 10:54 AM EDT.  It is the first day of Daylight Savings Time for most of the USA.

This annual Full Moon in Virgo is usually pretty gentle and soft.  I have no reason to believe it will be any different for most people this year.

Both Virgo and Pisces are signs that are meant to keep egos from getting too big.  Pisces can be very selfless and surrendered, and Virgo is at its best when keeping things simple and humble.

So this Full Moon in Virgo will serve you best if you keep your ego in check and concentrate more on your job or being of service.

Now of course Venus in Aries has other aims.   It is bold and proud and concentrates on being true to Self and empowered.

So you might feel both extremes in the few days surrounding this Full Moon.   You will have a pull to stand tall and hold your ground, while also wanting to be humble and allowing of others.

Do not be afraid to assert yourself now and assert your needs. Just do your best to do that in a way that the other person will hear and take in.

Good communication is not just about self expression. It is also about listening and being aware of those you are communicating to.

There has been so much change and so much new to get used to in the world over the last several months.

The election of Donald Trump to be President represents a major turning point for our country and world.

Everything now is much more out in the open, and for better or worse people are speaking their minds now without as much filter or control.

This of course can be very dangerous as Pandora’s Box of previously suppressed emotions has broken open.

There is much more hatred shown lately and violence often feels more on the verge of erupting.

This is also happening in the greater world, as Iran and North Korea are rattling their sabers, in large part as a reaction to the new USA administration’s more militant posture.

South Korea had its President impeached this last week, and it is unpredictable how China and especially North Korea will react to that.

The USA intends to put up in South Korea a missile shield and both China and North Korea have threatened reprisals if that happens.

Since Trump was elected both North Korea and Iran have tested long range missiles, in defiance of International rules.

Before this coming summer is over much of this tension will come to a head.  And also new economic realities will show themselves before this year is out.

August is the most intense month this year, and it could be extremely powerful as there are two elipses including a most important Total Solar Eclipse in Leo that will cross all the United States for the first time since 1918.

This turning point of Trump’s election is part of the planetary movements that require our human family to experience a deep transformation.

That transformation at its best will help us to heal and to reset our priorities and hence the paradigm we operate within.

Our Earth has been beaten up, our environment and oceans made so toxic, and our human family more and more self destructive.

Weapons of mass destruction, might makes right beliefs, and such a wide separation between sexes, religions, nations, cultures, families and races make a danger for us all.

We must be ready now to evolve into states of mind and consciousness that see us all as connected, all part of the same Earth family, living in a sacred world and a meaningful Universe.

The differences between us must be honored and respected, but must not separate us from the unity of heart and soul that is always there ready to be recognized and felt.

This is Diversity within Unity and is the light of consciousness wanting to stream into each of us as a foundation for the Age of Aquarius.

Also part of the Age of Aquarius is computers, technology, and internet. This will likely not go away, it will likely instead keep expanding.

If it does go away, it will be because it has not been integrated with our bodies, our Earth and our needs for intimate connection with one another.

If we continue to create electronic bubbles for ourselves that keep us separate from others and our deeper souls and bodies, then all will crumble and die.

It is not the technology that is bad, it is what we are doing or not doing that is damaging to our hearts, souls, and intimate relationships.  Our Earth’s nature and creatures are also endangered by our disconnection.

True empathy is our potential savior now,   As we are able to feel the reality of other beings, we make the deeper connections that transform our world into a new paradigm and age. Diversity within Unity becomes a healthy reality.

If we continue to live in US versus Them consciousness, we will end up destroying one another when “push comes to shove”, which is not that far away.

Though this should be a tamer week than usual, we still are dealing with Venus Retrograde issues, and end of Winter Pisces deeper reflections.

Mid week could get somewhat more emotionally intense as the Moon goes into Scorpio from Wednesday through most of Friday.  

You may also experience some “stop signs” when the Sun squares Saturn on Friday.

And late Friday into Saturday will bring a strong tendency to tell it like it is in a frank and straight forward manner as Mercury conjuncts Venus Retrograde early Saturday the 18th

Then next week on the 20th,  Winter officially ends at the Spring Equinox as the Sun moves into Aries.

We will talk more about that next week.

In the Middle of Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast Februay 12-18.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on February 11, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we are in between two eclipses.   The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo has passed, and the stronger Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces will not be here until February 26.

It will be stronger in part because Mars in Aries will be square Pluto just before it is conjunct Uranus in Aries on the 26th.

These Mars movements will trigger the powerful Cardinal T-Square of Jupiter in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries. That will accelerate the changes, the revolution and evolution of our consciousness and lives.

This week, though intensity should remain strong as it is part of  Eclipse Season, there will be a gradual “coming down” from the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon last week.

The issues that were brought up for you around the eclipse last week, will be ripe for processing and transforming.

Then at the Solar Eclipse New Moon on the 26th there will be a thrust forward with more action and even more intensity.

For now in your consciousness, do your best to not make absolute conclusions or rigid opinions.

Issues and ideas will unfold and be changeable now, and though one may want the security of having a set agenda, it is best to surrender to the greater energies during this Eclipse Season.

In the greater world, this Eclipse Season has brought on strong counteractions to the Trump administration’s agenda.  For instance, the courts have denied him the ability to stop the flow of immigrants into the country.

You can know for sure that this presidential administration will continue to face enormous backlash against its policies and actions.

We can now see how easy it will be for traditional and long set USA policies and protocols to fall away and in some instances crash.

The election of Trump showed us that the process of transformation into an Age Of Aquarius will not be graceful.

The United States will have many breakdowns of old ways, both good and bad, while at the same time trying to recapture the principles and values that formed America in its beginnings.

Europe will also be trying to find its identity during the next few years, and the turn to nationalism there and in America is part of that process.

Remember in the bigger picture we are moving into an age of Equality and Diversity within Unity, so anything that develops that appears to be going in an opposite direction is temporary and just part of the process.

Attempts to go back to old ways of Super Powers and exclusiveness are on the way out.  These attempts to go back to those old ways will be short lived and on a deeper level part of reintegrating what was good about the past that has been “thrown out with the bath water”.

Those original American principles of the Constitution and Bill of Rights have been eroding through the years, and they are needing to be found again for the rebirth part of its transformation into an Age of Aquarius.

On a personal level we are all being challenged to stay on our path, keeping and even firming up our own values.

This new administration is a part of the Universe’s challenge to us to not let fear and hatred take us off course.

If we are now afraid and feel hopeless or victimized and keeping our hatred alive; we are moving into the same mind frame as those we are hating and feeling powerless to.

We can now deepen our connections to Source and the Universe, strengthen our commitment to the world we envision, and be a part of a growing movement of revolution.

Just as our ancestors started a revolution from the grip of a King’s’ authority, so now can we do the same in our own way.

Keep your view of the bigger picture, strengthen your resolve for transformational change, and deepen your spiritual connection. Concentrate on those things and you will stay out of a personal inner hell.

This week as we move “down” from last week’s Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, we begin to get ready for the more powerful eclipse on February 26.

On Thursday February 16 the Moon goes into Scorpio for a few days, to begin a process of going deeper into your soul, your emotions and feelings, and your inner spiritual depths.

On Saturday February 18, while the Moon is still in Scorpio, the Sun will begin its annual journey through Pisces.

Scorpio and Pisces are both deep water signs, so you will be prompted to go inside yourself more.

Later that same day as the Moon moves into Sagittarius it will create the 4th quarter Moon, which begins the last quarter of the lunar cycle.

That 4th quarter beginning will open up the way to a need to finish things up in preparation for the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

What parts of your current life need to change now?

Is it your attitudes and beliefs?  Is it the patterns of your relationships?  Is there a need to change your home or homelife?  Do you feel good about fulfilling your sense of purpose?

Just like in the 60’s and 70’s, all parts of one’s life may be challenged to change.

Back then as now, if our relationships feel empty, without soul and spirit, they will need to change or be ended.

If we do not feel heart connection to our jobs or place where we live, we may need to make changes.

You will know when and if it is time to make the changes, as life and the Universe will bring you the events or inner stirrings that show you the way.

You will not need to contrive the changes or “push the river” t0 move forward before it is time.

Eclipse Seasons often bring the events or inner stirrings for change, but it usually does not mean change comes all at once.

If the events or inner promtings come to you it is best to pay heed, as it is better to initiate change than have it thrown at us. Yet sometimes it is “fated” to come to us when we least expect it.

The more connected we each are to our inner light the better, and that is strengthened with an inner anchor inside.

Till next week,

Fires of Transformation and Astrology Forecast for April 8-14

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Mercury has gone back direct, though still moving slowly. Mars will finally go back direct later this week on Friday the 13th of April.

So at the current crossroads, it is getting time to pick some direction.   And keep in mind that picking a direction does not guarantee you will stay on course.   There will be many twists and turns in the weeks ahead.

But at least you should be better able to “see” more clearly, as  Mercury has gone Direct.

Mars Direct begins to show you what you truly desire, what you want to do, and begins to push you into more active energies.

But Mercury and Mars are just in the beginning stages of shifting. .    The action mode of Mars Direct will just get started later this week, so motors are merely revving up.

Soon, however, the Eclipse season begins.  Status quo will not hold much longer.  Winds of change will force us off our usual balance.   We move faster forward into greater progress, transformation, and evolution.

This coming week the energy field will intensify as the Moon is in Scorpio early this week,  Pluto changes direction to Retrograde mid week,  and Mars changes to Direct later in the week.   Pluto’s power and passion and Mars’ forcefulness will penetrate into our consciousness and lives.

Be aware of anger rising inside of you.  If you try to push it down and not deal with it, it can cause headaches and other stresses in your body and soul.   Pushing it down can also cause you to lash out later in ways that have nothing to do with the original problem.

But what will happen in many cases this week is explosive arguments and frustrations.   Be careful not to do anything that you will regret. Stay as calm as possible, no matter what the stimulus.

Remember that this week is a turning point week, and as such energies are shifting.  The power of this week, even if it is sometimes quite uncomfortable, will shift us toward where we need to go.

The Pluto station especially can bring a deep and powerfully transformational energy.  You may be brought into situations and emotions that bring a catharsis and a clearing, and afterwards an acceptance of reality.

For some this week will merely bring more energy, more passion, and more motivation to push their life forward, without too much drama.

In the greater world passions will be boiling this week.   North Korea later this week is planning to send a satellite into orbit, which most of the international community fears, and the USA President Obama has warned against.

The international community has also set up a meeting with Iran on April 13 and 14, as Mars is changing directions back to Direct.  In the last couple of days Iran has been apparently backing away from this meeting. And if it does, the wrath of Israel and western powers will bring a confrontation closer to reality in the coming weeks.  If the meeting is held and goes badly this also would tend to bring the world closer to war.

Other powerful events, like earthquakes, also are more likely this coming week.

Keep in mind that everthing that happens this week and as the Eclipse season unfolds is meant to clear the way for our passage into an Age of Aquarius. Old ways and patterns die hard, as I am sure you recognize in your personal life.  Sometimes only with the most difficult events does a person make commitment to never do it that old way ever again.

And of course we live in what increasingly looks like an insane world, as insanity can be defined as doing the same things over and over again and expecting a different result than what keeps happening over and over again.

I thought our collective consciousness understood many years ago that racial injustice and racial wars were wrong and destroying our human family, but the Trayvon Martin tragedy is showing us we have not learned well enough yet.

I thought that when we attacked Iraq, that people learned how oil and power hunger were the real motivations for war in the Middle East.   No one attacked us, which should be the only reason for war.  Yet now another Middle East power with oil is in danger of being attacked soon.    Will we be fooled into demonizing another country and its leader and going to war again? Or will we stand up and protest this time in such large numbers that the carnage will be stopped?

We are on the cusp of ending our paradigm of separation from one another, of ending a dog eat dog mentality that pushes us into greedily taking for ourselves while others suffer.

How much more struggle do we need before we learn for good?  How much longer will we keep doing Groundhogs Day reruns?

We are all in this world together, all one family, on this beautiful and sacred Earth home.    We are destined to evolve into more loving and empathic divinely guided beings who are free in heart, mind, and soul.    We are meant to heal one another and our Earth home and progress into a new Aquarian Age.

Let the old ways be released in your heart, mind and soul.  Do your best not to stubbornly hold onto that which is familiar yet increasingly toxic.  Holding on may give the semblance of security, but in reality holding on destroys your body and soul.  It causes blockages and stresses and stops you from fully engaging in life.    You get anxious and/or depressed and just go through the motions of life.

Use these coming planetary events to let go and trust the Universe and your deeper soul’s wisdom.    There may temporarily be some feelings of things being out of control, but soon you will also feel more alive, with a more open heart.

And from that heart place you will express your authenticity, find more purpose, better friends, and a healthier life for your self.   You will feel more connected to the Universe and your fellow human being, and more a part of a greater community.

This spring will assist your growth and evolution, as 2012 is a year of greater transformation into a new paradigm for living on the Earth.   Make a commitment to be a contributing part of this emergence, by actualizing the potential of your higher self, the self that is naturally aligned with the Aquarian Age.
