Half Full or Half Empty and Astrology Forecast December 17-23

The man-made border between years, this transition time between 2017 and 2018, is fast approaching.

I say man-made because nature was not “consulted” in picking January 1 as the beginning of a new year.

In some other countries the first day of spring is considered the beginning of the new year. And of course Spring does feel like new vital energies erupting, like a new beginning.  And the sign that begins every spring is Aries, an obvious generator of new starts.

I think that says much about our culture and its lack of respect for nature, for natural cycles and seasons.

We all too often lead our lives based on what we are expected to do, what we should do, what we desire to do, what the rules or conventional culture “tells” us to do.

In contrast, Astrology is part of nature, of natural cycles and seasons, part of the grand movements of our solar system and Universe.

And this week, which will lead to the holiday season, shows us a turning of tides, a shifting of natural energies.

We are awakened from our collective nap at the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 18 at 1:30 AM EST.

Then on December 21 we enter Winter Solstice at 11:28 AM EST. That same day, there is a very rare occasion- Saturn will be conjunct that Winter Solstice point.

Then on December 22, the much awaited Direct movement of Mercury occurs at 8:51 PM EST.

During Mercury Retrograde many shifted their thinking or questioned their previous decisions and chosen directions.

Now after Mercury goes back Direct, and giving it a week or so to go back to normal speed, you will be able to assess if that change of mind sticks or if you need to go back to what was originally chosen.

For some, people and/or memories floated back into their consciousness or life, giving  another perspective on issues in our life.

After Mercury goes back Direct, the fog will begin to lift, clarity will begin to appear.

However, around the day that Mercury actually goes back Direct, it can be especially confusing or disorienting. Let the process play out before jumping to conclusions.

Mercury going Direct will feel like new beginnings, but so will the New Moon in Sagittarius.

The New Moon in Sagittarius on the 17th/18th is a fiery new moon.  Sagittarius is fire that moves where it is inspired to go.  People with a strong Sagittarius influence are free spirits , wanting to follow their intuition, their inspiration, their sense of adventure.

Their challenge is to not leap before they look, to not be too impulsive, to not be so cock sure their opinion is always right.

As we all experience the New Moon in Sagittarius, we will begin to feel joy and upliftment.

Yet to counter that upward spiral of spirit, we are still experiencing the downward spiral of darker and darker days on the way to Winter Solstice on the 21st.

So we may feel a bit torn between hope and optimism one minute, then sadness or negativity later.

Our glass of life is in the process of a changing perspective from half empty to half full.

As we get closer to the Winter Solstice on the 21st, the day is getting darker and darker.  Heavy Saturn goes into its “home” sign of Capricorn on the 19th, just two days before the Winter Solstice Sun in Capricorn on the 21st.

Then later that same day, Saturn in Capricorn conjuncts the Winter Solstice Sun in Capricorn.

That may bring some sadness, some feelings of depression, a negative outlook on life.

But if you stay present for the turn toward the light at 11:28 AM EST on the 21st, you may feel the subtle shift energetically toward more light  minutes of the day.  And the light keeps growing until Spring Equinox when light and dark become equal.

So as the light comes back, the Sun does not open to light as easily as it normally does on Winter Solstice. That is because of Saturn in Capricorn making conjunction with the Winter Solstice Sun.

Saturn stops the full expression of whatever it touches. It is gravity. It is the hand of time. It is rules and responsibilities.

We are still in the reach of the New Moon in Sagittarius, however, so we may be in a loop between manic and depressed, so to speak

Please do not let the situations in the world get you down or feeling hopeless.   Everything is in meaningful order.

We are undoubtedly feeling the cracking open of the concrete structure of the Military/Industrial complex.

Change is wanting to pour in through those cracks which are getting bigger and more plentiful all the time.

This splitting apart is causing huge divisions between cultures, religions, nations, genders, etc.

In America it is being felt as a big split between the left culture and the right culture. There is little thread between them to keep them together.

The yin/yang symbol of wholeness is splitting in two within the old Paradigm.

Get out of the Old Paradigm and its wars. Do not be so quick to choose sides.  In the New Paradigm all is connected, diverse but connected. There is no demonizing of those who are different than us.

There is a much stronger rope between the differences. The yin/yang symbol is whole. There is still black and white, male and female, yin and yang. But those opposites are part of a wholeness of Unity.

This is the Age of Aquarius with its Diversity within Unity.

So don’t see the good guys or girls versus the bad guys or girls. The enemy is not North Korea or Iran or China or Muslims.  The enemy is not white men or conservatives or Christians or people from red states, or on the contrary liberals or African Americans or LGBTQ peoples.

Do not be a part of the cracking concrete of the Old Paradigm of US Versus Them.

Yes stand up for what you believe is right, but don’t be part of a war against those who think differently.

Trust that everything is happening for a reason, that an old world is transitioning into a New World, the Age of Aquarius.

You don’t have to kill the members of the Old World, evolution happens naturally.

Quit thinking Trump all the time like the media does. Trump loves that much attention.  He is not the enemy.  What he represents is what we need to release on a very deep level of our collective consciousness

The MeToo revolution is so needed in our world now, but if it turns to men versus women it loses its way.

There is an old paradigm that believes that those in power and privilege can do what they want and can abuse that power and take whatever they want.

Men and women have both bought into that belief system. Are men predators and women prey?  Are men the perpetrators and women the victims?

What needs to be transformed is believing that is true. And so many men and women deeply believe that as they have been conditioned to believe.

We may have developed that as part of an old paradigm, but in nature it is not true, inherently it is not true.

But if you buy into it, it becomes true for you.

Mercury goes Direct on the 22nd at 8:51 PM EST. Feel the shift and feel the relief. It has been a very difficult Mercury Retrograde this time for many.

As it ends feel the gears in your mind beginning to shift back.   It is a good time to gather our senses, to bring our selves to sanity in this often insane world, and to make our better values our highest priority.

Till next week,

Leo

Stepping up the Tempo and Astrology Forecast September 20-27.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week we moved through our first eclipse of this Eclipse Season, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo. And then a few days afterward we experienced the beginning of a new Mercury Retrograde period.

A huge 8.3 Earthquake in Chile happened during that week. I would not be surprised if more were on the way soon considering the deep power of this Eclipse Season.

We are in new energy zones now and this week the intensity increases with a second quarter Moon in Sagittarius; Autumn Equinox; and Pluto going Direct just a few days before the important Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries early next week.

The second quarter of the Solar Eclipse New Moon’s lunar cycle begins on Monday September 21, with the Moon in Sagittarius.

A second quarter moon usually picks up the pace in the lunar cycle,  as we move inexorably forward toward the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries on Sunday September 27.

Before that Lunar Eclipse, there is an important annual turning point event,  the Autumn Equinox on Wednesday September 23 at 4:21 AM EDT.

Autumn Equinox always begins as the Sun moves into Libra.  Those Libran scales are evenly balanced between dark and light minutes of the day on Autumn Equinox; but right afterwards the dark minutes begin to increase.  They will continue to increase until Winter Solstice when darkness will be at its zenith.

You can metaphorically view the Autumn Equinox like a sunset time of year, as Spring Equinox is like a Sun rising time of year.

As the darkness begins to set in at Autumn Equinox, our hearts and souls begin to soften and open up to relationship and artistic beauty.  These are Libra traits that are evident during the beginning month of Autumn.

As we begin to move more yin-ward with the increasing dark minutes of the day, we feel a pull to be more attentive to social values instead of more self assertive values.

Self assertive pursuits are more organic in the first month of spring when Aries is the ruling sign.

So now we begin to lean into cooler and darker days, but ever so slowly, as we take our time as we experience the loveliness of early Autumn.

In contrast, overnight September 24/25, darkly intense Pluto goes from Retrograde to Direct.  As it changes directions, its power of transformation enters our collective energy field.

The intensity level will increase as we feel our passion increasing. Sometimes that means we are more apt to get into arguments with others, and if so be careful not to say things you might regret later.

Other times, however, Pluto can help us to express what we have been suppressing, so we can then work out issues that have blocking out our authentic “voice”.  At the same time there may be a catharsis in the interaction and a clearing the air.

Afterwards there is a feeling of renewal, like after an orgasm.  Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio and so passions of all sorts including sexual are normal at such times of Pluto changing directions.

And this increase of intensity is a bridge into the power of the Total Lunar Eclipse new Moon in Aries.

That Total Lunar Eclipse is the 4th Lunar Eclipse in a row that is total eclipse, also called a Blood Moon.

And every one of these Blood Moons has occurred on a Jewish holiday, showing us the potentiality of a sign pointing to important world events involving Israel now.

The fight right now over the Jewish Temple Mount, which is the Muslim Al Aqsa, has been getting heavier and is a potential place for great conflict, as this area has been considered holy by Christians, Muslims and Jews.

Also as we move through the shifts this week and next, look closely at the stock markets and global economy. They are on the verge of great transformation, and signs of great changes that are on the way are being shown now.

Out world is in the process of great change, as our old paradigm for living is changing more and more every day.  Old borders between countries, and power balances are changing more and more every day.

This is a great time, as everything is shifting, to open up to the gateway and portal into our new world.

As you clear out blocks and let go of old dysfunctional patterns and toxic energies, you are opening up more to Source and Universe.  From there you will receive more synchronicities and meaningful symbols showing you the way.   This portal has great doses of Truth helping you to be more awake.

This gateway also has more love and meaning pouring through, changing the tone and glow of everyone and everything in your life.

We are being taken out of our old comfort zones during this Eclipse Season, which may not have been truly that comfortable for you.

As you are being taken off your usual balance, that brings in both difficult and enjoyable elements into your consciousness and life.

You will naturally experience breakdowns of that which is not right for you anymore and breakthroughs into new realms of experience.

Do not hold on too tightly to that which is ready to go.  Stop your self from being too attached and all will happen more gracefully.

It is true that change can be stressful, whether considered positive or negative,so do your best to keep centered and seeing all as happening for a reason.

Remember that Mercury is Retrograde now too, so do not try too hard to figure it all out intellectually or analytically.  Let the process unfold now instead of needing answers now.

Allow your reflective, imaginative, and intuitive mind and heart to be of more influence now.

And realize that also there may be some rewinding into the past too now, so you can reintegrate people, ideas, old parts of self back into your consciousness.

And please with all the shifting and changing and Mercury Retrograde, be careful not to jump to any conclusions or make hasty decisions.

The Eclipse Intensity will slowly subside after the Total Eclipse and Mercury will stay retrograde until October 9.

This Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on Sunday September 27 will be at 10:51 PM EDT.  It will have the Sun in Libra and the Moon in Aries.

This will push us into finding a proper balance between peace and conflict; between being true to self or true to someone else or a relationship; taking action or letting things go; and being assertive or being accommodating.

In the greater world “war or peace” will be a likely major theme to be worked out.

I am posting this while in Southern France.  We are there on a pilgrimage to the places Mary Magdalene was said to have walked, and to experience the energies of the Cathars, who were wiped out in genocide in the 13th century during the Inquisition.

I hope to post short updates on September 26 and October 3 while still in France. I will be back to USA on October 5.

Till next week,

Leo

Also I have a new YouTube video for the eclipses for you to see.

And my wife Deborah has just started a blog will bring to you a greater sense of life’s sacredness and our human connection to our Earth, Feminine mysteries and that which brings us all together in unity.

Moving Toward the Light and Astrology Forecast December 21-27

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 20, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We experience an important turning point at the Winter Solstice on December 21 at 6:03 PM EST.   And that annual turning point toward more light has more importance than usual as there is a New Moon in Capricorn also on the 21st, at 8:36 PM EST.  

Adding to the importance of this year’s Winter Solstice day is the fact that the transformational planet of awakening, Uranus, will change directions and go Direct that same day- at 5:45 PM EST.

All of these events happen within three hours of one another.  So it will be an especially good time then to be present, to meditate or at least stay aware of this shift.

Last weekend an exact Uranus/Pluto square was experienced in a very profound and powerful way by many people.

There was much intensity and even turmoil for many then.  Emotions were brought up to the surface and expressed.   Truth was spoken and in some cases there was a real breakdown of old thinking or ways of being.

Then afterwards there were breakthroughs and awakenings for some, and for others a facing of some core truths that were difficult to handle.

Much of the intensity has lifted for many now, and there has been a clearing and a greater acceptance of what is real and true.

Now at the Winter Solstice, which will bring an end to the move toward darker days, we feel the turning toward more hope for the future.

But remember that the Winter Solstice brings the Sun into Capricorn, and not long after that the Moon joins the Sun in Capricorn to create a New Moon.

So there are new beginnings and movement forward, but Capricorn is not about immediate gratification or fast movement, and is instead about the long haul, discipline, planning, and a slow building toward one’s goals.

It is true that Uranus, which will also be prominent on the Winter Solstice, is more lightning like energetically, and hence brings a feeling that one has broken some chains, woken up, and is liberated.

Even if you are feeling that, keep aware that even though Uranus is bringing you a quick inspiration or idea or sense of direction, there will be much work to go through and the results are unknown.

It will be a very good time around the Winter Solstice to make intentions and yes even resolutions, but making things stick and truly manifest will take effort and commitment to the process.

These are very transformational times and often now your heart and soul may not agree with what you think is the correct or safest thing to do.

That issue will need to be worked out through time.  It is true that during times of great change as we are experiencing now (and will continue to experience for quite awhile longer) that one’s heart and soul need to lead the way. That is because our heart and soul are connected to the energies that are moving through our world and through us.

But we each need to work on the apparent contradiction between what the heart and soul feel they are driven toward and what will apparently keep our lives feeling safe and secure.

Perhaps you will need to make the drastic change your heart is opening up to, but it is also possible your heart has merely let you know you that you have been asleep and detached from your passions.

You may still be able to bring some heart back into your current situation, or at least find some balance between the seeming opposites.

The energies in Capricorn tell us we will likely need to trust time to bring us the answers at the right time.

Our human family is truly taking a collective ride into new territory together.   Though many will instead say that there is never anything new under the Sun, that history always repeats itself, and that “Groundhog Day” repeat performances is all we can ever expect; they are dead wrong as there is a New Age we are rapidly moving toward.

And the changes will accelerate, especially as we move through late Winter and Spring 2015.

Uranus will square Pluto one more time, on March 16 2015.  A few days later, on the day of Spring Equinox March 20, there will be the first of two eclipses in a row.

Not only will be that be a very powerful and meaningful day, but it will also give a signature of deep transformational change for Spring Season 2015.

In April 2014 there was a Cardinal Grand Cross with Uranus and Pluto mixed within. There were also two eclipses that month.

And the Grand Cross triggered the USA Natal Chart from July 4 1776, as it was at the same exact Cardinal degree as the USA Sun placement that day- 13+ degrees of Cancer.

So there is growingly clearer view of the great changes the USA is going through in order for it to be aligned with the energies and realities of the Age of Aquarius.

Aquarius is about equality and Diversity within Unity.  There can be no Empires or Superpowers in an Age of Aquarius.

There is breaking down of the notion of superiority and privilege, and a greater sense that “we are all in this together”.

Much worldwide change will be triggered by events in the Middle East, and the economy is destined to be drastically changed as well.

With Cuba now being brought into more normal relations with the USA and west, with Iran being brought more into normality with the rest of the world, with Palestine being more and more accepted as its own state, there is much positive movement toward an Age Of Aquarius,equality, and Diversity in Unity.

There is also much awakening toward the need for even greater civil rights and fairness for African Americans, Hispanics and the Gay/Lesbian community. And of course there is a great need to understand the painful plight of so many women around the world.  Ane men are also caught in the chains of conditioning from the old paradigm, dying in wars that are most often fought for monied interests and the privileged.

But there are also many powerful forces that oppose such attempts at reconciliation, justice, and unity. And there is a real culture war developing between many in the Muslim world and the Judeo-Christian world.   And there are many who want the old world to stay at it is, or even to go back to an earlier time.

So during these times of transition, most especially when powerful planetary movements are erupting like Uranus Square Pluto, there will be much light coming through to awaken people to new consciousness and ways of being with one another on Planet Earth.

But there will also be much resistance to the new energies and new world.

That is like worlds colliding, bringing with it big breakdowns and huge breakthroughs.

And in each of our individual lives, we are experiencing similar breakdowns and breakthroughs.

If you truly are staying present and aware, open in your heart and mind, trusting the Universe and your soul’s journey, you will take the ride to your best and authentic self, to more authentic relationships too.

You will also see more synchronicities, signs from the Universe, and magic.

But you may also experience some pain as you resist the new energies, or as you watch old chapters and people or pets from those old chapters die or leave. You may feel anger, grief, being alone, confusion, and disorientation.  But you will be alive and evolving, and being part of a larger community of souls who are transforming just like you.

We are co-creating a new world together and bringing all the opposites together with truth as our guide.

Turn toward the light now as we move through a most important Winter Solstice this year. There is hope if you open your heart to receive it.

See you next week,

Leo

As You Know It, So Shall it Be and Astrology Forecast September 16-22.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Well there is a lot going on astrologically, and of course that means there is a lot going on in the world.  This forecast blog has been letting people know that the Middle East is center stage in the transformation of our planet from an old age and paradigm to an Aquarian Age.

It is where many of our world’s first civilizations were born and where most of our major religions have their roots.  It is where now much of the toxicity based on dysfunctional patterns of separation abound.

This past week, in connection with the Uranus/Pluto square while Pluto changes direction on September 18/19, the Middle East has been erupting. It is ostensibly in turmoil because of a really dumb and horribly disparaging film about Mohammed and Islam.  I saw much of this film on UTube. It portrays Mohammed as a child molester, a fraud, a homosexual, and also a person who sexually uses women and pillages. It is very weird and poorly made, and very disrespectful of the cherished beliefs of millions of people.

This movie is the match that is igniting the dry brush of perceived disgust and disrespect from western nations and peoples toward Islam and its culture.

If not this movie, something else would have ignited the flames.   Soon Syria, Iran, Israel, Egypt, and many other countries will be drawn into the fires of conflict.  Watch carefully this coming week’s news there, and be aware that in November, after the elections, that Syria and Iran especially will be in the spotlight of world affairs and a possible Israeli or western powers invasion could occur.

In November, while Mercury is retrograde, there will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on November 13. That is the exact date anniversary of the coup that brought the Assad family and the Baathist Shiite party in to power in Syria. That was November 13, 1970.

Soon afterwards this year there will be a second eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini on November 28.    Mars will be triggering the Uranus/Pluto square then also as it makes conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn on November 27.

The fires of transformation will be especially strong in late October through December.    This coming week brings much opportunity for healing and transformation also.

The week’s power begins today Saturday September 15 with a New Moon in Virgo at 10:11 PM EDT.   As with all new moons, it is time for new beginnings.   In Virgo it becomes time to get more grounded and real. Virgo is skeptical of anything that flies too high or that stops being “real”.

It is indeed time to get your head out of any dream world clouds of fantasy or illusion, and to see life for real,as that way you can get your life to work better and be more ordered and efficient.  Simplifying your life and fixing and healing what needs to be fixed and healed, is also aligned for this lunar cycle.

Since the Uranus/Pluto square is opening up now also, especially strong because Pluto is stationary, going from retrograde to direct; there is much intensity to deal with.  Change is in the air, and you can best use this time period to allow your deeper issues to come up to the surface where they can better be worked with.  In fact it may be very difficult at times to hold the energies back.

Transformation and healing are dependent on feeling our issues emotionally, not just looking at them intellectually.  In feeling them, we are at the deeper level from which true change is possible.  So at times like this, you may get into emotional discussions that bring up uncomfortable issues that have been previously kept securely “under the rug” of our consciousness.

As they come up, we better understand “where we are at” on a deeper level, and can then better judge if we want to improve something or some relationship or if we want to let it go.  Can an old pattern be healed and transformed, or is it indicative of something that has died and must be let go?

These are not times to stubbornly hold onto the status quo of “same-old, same-old” in our lives. The deck of our lives is being reshuffled and we need to be ready to shift what needs to shifted.

A new chapter of our lives has begun, and we must do our best to see it that way. If we do we can give perspective to what needs to be changed.  What ways are reflective of how we were leading our lives in the chapter that is passing?    What new ways of being have we recently opened up to and are getting used to?

Release what keeps you stuck in old and unsatisfactory attitudes and beliefs.  Embrace that which makes you feel better about your self and life.  You want to be aligned with your authentic soul self and with the Universe, free to see the truth and to love and be loved.  The old patterns of programming from society and family and past lives has not served you so far, so why would they now?

It may feel sometimes that when you release and let things go, that there will be nothing to replace them, but there will be. Life always fills up the vacuum of what has been released, in time.

When you see the destruction in the greater world now, the hatreds and intolerance, the chaos and attempts to militaristically bring order, stay out of its way.

Do not let yourself get emotionally hooked into the dramas, taking sides and picking out enemies.  What is happening is meant to clear the way for a New World. Those who are hooked in are a part of that old world, and will need this time to hopefully see that this is all so toxic and dysfunctional and reflective of a world filled with beliefs of separation.

We are all one, with many shades and differences and orientations. We are all one family. There is dark and light in everything, “good and bad” in everyone and everything, so to speak. There is no religion or race or nation, or sexual orientation superior to any other.   We were created as a Unified Whole, and every cell in that Whole is also meant to  be Whole.

The Aquarian Age is about equality and Diversity in Unity, liberation and freedom, all the opposites joined as one.  Night and Day are unified to make the whole day. Yin and Yang are connected in circular oneness, hot and cold do not fight for which is better. The plug and outlet are meant to be joined.

It is time for each of us to know that all the dots in the Universe are connected with sacred meaning, not in random nothingness.

As you know it, so shall it be.

Use these powerful planetary movements to help you to let go of limiting beliefs, and of an old world and its paradigm, which is on the edge of destruction.  Instead use the transformational openings that are being created to find new connections, and to embrace the Love and Truth that are the pillars that hold up our Universe.

Next Saturday, when we “speak” again, it will be time for the Autumn Equinox, the balancing of the scales of Libra. It will be the “sunset” time of year, when we start our yin-ward movement toward more yearnings for relationship and deeper meaning.

see you next week,

Leo

Scorpio’s Depths of Core Truth, and Astrology Forecast for October 24-30

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on October 23, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Sun moves into Scorpio today, October 23, 2010.  Venus retrograde, Mercury, and Mars are already in Scorpio.    It is time to begin to see beyond the pretty Libra pictures, and get down more fully into the deeper Scorpionic core of truth.   Issues hidden and sometimes shrouded in mystery are revealed.  

As an example of such deeper truth being revealed, yesterday WikiLeaks came out with documents of truth about the war in Iraq.  Among many new truths is the information that there were many more civilian deaths there than had been previously reported.  There were 15,000 more civilian deaths than previously reported,  a total of 122,000.

The New York Times says the documents disclosed “many previously unreported instances in which American soldiers killed civilians — at checkpoints, from helicopters, in operations” and it said there were at least four cases of lethal shootings from helicopters.

The documents detail torture, summary executions and war crimes. U.S. authorities failed to investigate hundreds of reports of abuse, torture, rape and murder by Iraqi police and soldiers, the documents show, it said.

The Times said that hundreds of reports of beatings, burnings and lashings suggested that “such treatment was not an exception.” Most abuse cases contained in the new batch of leaks appear to have been ultimately ignored, the paper said.

So many people have died, including American young people, and so many have suffered, and do you truly know why we invaded Iraq in the first place?  There were no nuclear weapons there. They had not invaded us or any of our allies.  They had no relationship with Osama bin Laden.  Sure they had a ruthless dictator, but there are many such people all over the world, and do we invade their country and start a war?

The “Powers that Be” programmed us to believe we needed to invade Iraq.   Because so many people blindly believe their leaders, and because people want to be “patriotic”, and because we easily get fired up to defeat “enemies”, especially now those with arab or muslim populations, we thus invaded another country, waged war, and caused many deaths and much suffering.

And you can feel the fear and hatred for Muslims growing in the country, as can be seen through the mainstream media.    The stews of more war are boiling hot.   Fear and hatred toward Muslims is now becoming like it has been with black men or like it was in Germany toward Jews before World War II. 

Wake up!!   The drums of hatred and war are beating again.  Iran is the developing face of the Muslim enemy now.    There is only one enemy to be defeated now:   Hatred and its allies Fear and Ignorance.

Our country is in obvious decay now, in large part because citizens have gone to sleep and given their power away to the Kings and Queens of modern times: Governments and Corporations and Mainstream Media.  They dominate our lives now.

Use this Scorpio energy now to go deeper into the core of truth.  This roto-rooting into deeper truth will get stronger still after November 6, after the Scorpio New Moon.   You are getting much help to transform your consciousness out of programming by society and family.  You can break out of the “tapes” in your mind that keep you from the truth and love that will set you free.

Hatred, and its allies fear and ignorance are the only “enemies”.  If hatred is the enemy, its defeat is only possible through love.   Unity consciousness is the only solid foundation we can set for our new Aquarian Age.     No race, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, or religion is our enemy that needs to be destroyed. 

We have been invading Muslim lands and acting like conquerors.   Can you imagine how we would react if some other culture or country invaded our country for “our own good”?  Only 8 men, who happened to be Muslim, invaded our country, and they did not destroy our country and take it over. We have been waging war against muslim countries that did not attack us, ever since that attack. And there is more to come.  And it is so important we let go of the hatreds now.

Additional help to break out of old programming is coming our way, with powerful astrological aspects and world events. Crisis is opportunity to transform and heal.

 Let go of the need for something or someone to be better than someone or something else.  There are no good guy Americans fighting against the bad guys. There is “good and bad”, so to speak, in everything and everyone, dark and light, yin and yang.  There is nothing to fight against.

There is only the need to make whole, to integrate.   We are one whole family here on the Earth, diversity in Unity. You have one whole family, made of many different facets of self- inside your self.   Take away the prejudiced judgments and you can make wholeness inside.   Take away the prejudiced judgments of others and we can develop a unified community here on Earth.

The Truth can be painful to see. It can bring disillusion and pain at first.  But truth does set us free from capture.  Scorpio can put us to the core of truth we have been avoiding, as life can feel more dullingly comfortable while living the lie.    After Scorpio helps us face these deep core truths, we are then able to release the old toxins, dysfunctions, and patterns. And then we can feel cleansed and healed.  And then the power of self and self renewal.   We are free.

Venus retrograde, as it has been since October 8, will help us to know the truth of relationship.  This can be truth about our romantic relationships, or friendships, or family members, or work associates.  There is much healing that can happen in current realtionship. Those that cannot find healing can be ended.  People from the past can reappear now to help put perspective and insight on those old relationships.   This insight may help us with our current relationships.  New people may also come into our lives during Venus Retrograde. It may be best not to jump to conclusions about those new relationships.

Venus goes direct on November 18, and runs full circle on December 20, a day before a most powerful Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice.  This will be followed by a Solar Eclipse on January 4 2011, that opposes the USA natal Sun.

Big events are coming our way.  New truths about the economy will be revealed.

After the New Moon in Scorpio on November 6, events will intensify.    You can choose to fall into fear, or to see all coming our way as meaningful and part of the transition into an Aquarian Age.

See you next week,
