Ready or Not and Astrology Forecast March 26- April 1

Time to start up the engines of our lives, as a New Moon in Aries motivates us to get moving.

It has always seemed to me to be a strange time for the New Year,  on January 1 when the Sun is in Capricorn.   It seems to me that man made reality is out of touch with “nature”.  Actually not very surprising, is it?

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, and Saturn is about “what one is supposed to do” more than about what comes naturally.   Capricorn is about rules, self discipline, material accomplishment, responsibility, and authority.

Aries time of year is much more naturally about fresh new beginnings, of taking action, of moving forward, and initiating.  To me that feels much more like New Year.

Spring Equinox is the beginning of Sun in Aries, but the New Moon in Aries (when the Moon catches up to the Sun in Aries) seems like the most powerful time energetically for New Year.

New Moon in Aries 2017 is Monday March 27 at 10:57 PM EDT.  So on Tuesday the 28th we can start the ignition for our lives this year.

Pisces time of year, a time of internal psychological and spiritual movement, is passing.  Grief has been really strong for many people lately and that is aligned with the energy of Pisces.

So it is time to finish up the process of releasing the past, for now, and instead we can start to move forward with more conscious intention.

This Aries New Moon also effectively ends Eclipse Season.  So the events that will be coming soon will be resulting from what shook up during Eclipse Season, which goes back to late January.

World events that have been brewing and boiling will be ready soon to erupt into our lives.

The Trump administration, along with many nationalistic movements in the world, are setting things up in a way similar to before the start of World War II.

Mussolini, Franco, and Hitler represented this nationalism and the power of individual leaders over their citizens.

The United States in its beginning was a healthy reaction to a world of Kings and Queens, dictators, and abuse of power.

Now with the Trump administration, there is a movement toward more power for the president and the executive branch of the goverment. Other countries are moving in that direction also.

Power of the people is being threatened as a result, and it is time for the people to speak even louder, and now also to act.

Our country’s core values are at stake, and the current self assuming King will need to be somehow counteracted or overthrown.

Usually the way that the King gets more power is through a crisis like war or terrorism or economic downturn, when people are so afraid that they want “daddy” to make them feel safe and secure.

This time when the crises hit, and they will, we the people must take responsibility for our country and world- not turn it over to the “royalty” or saviors.

Saviors are part of the Pisces Age, and we are moving fast toward group action in an Age of Aquarius.

No longer can we consider our leaders as Gods, royalty , or saviors.

We  are the ones we are looking for to heal our Earth and human family, not the “special ones” or “privileged ones”.

So yes we can expect major world crises to shake things up and open up the portals to new ways and new consciousness.

That means more and more people will be awakened, and those already awakened will take more responsibility for our world and human family.

The old traditional ways no longer work right, and we cannot keep trying to revive them so we can bring the world back to how it used to be. “Used to be” is dead and gone.

We are ready to create the new world, and many people are already doing that in their personal lives and consciousness.

And with each transformational jolt we receive, the energy to create this new world in both our personal and collective lives increases.

And August this year will be a big turning point for us, as there are 2 powerful eclipses, especially the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21. That one will be the first since 1918 to travel over the whole of the United States .  99 years ago that happened.

So let go of how you wanted the changes to happen.  We need to deal with what has really happened.

We can now stop crying and instead get started again moving forward on our authentic soul path. The aligned connection to our true self and the Universe is what we need as a foundation for our life and our contribution to our world.

Fear is your only enemy now, as it is debilitating and if held to for long leads to depression, hatreds, disconnections, and very bad choices.

So this week, let’s get back up.

There is a strong New Moon in Aries late on the 27th, then a powerful Jupiter square Pluto mid week.

That Jupiter square Pluto triggers the Cardinal T-Square that keeps staying with us. Seven of our 10 planets will then be in Cardinal signs, which means important new starts.

The cardinal signs, which represent the beginning sign of each season, also quite arguably bring out the most important parts of our lives.

Aries is being true to self and personal survival; Cancer is home, family, and inner values; Libra is relationships and social consciousness; and Capricorn is outer values and accomplishment in the world. 

All these integral parts of what it means to be alive are being challenged to grow and evolve in our lives.

This week allow the new energies to rouse you out of your sleepiness or out of your bubble of protection.

Take the ride.

Till next week,

Leo

Rising Up and Astrology Forecast January 29- February

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 28, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We just moved into a new lunar cycle as there was a New Moon in Aquarius on Friday January 27.  It is a stronger New Moon than usual as Mars went into Aries relatively close to the same time.

That means there is a strong movement forward into new beginnings.  If you have been putting off some decision or some task or some project or some adventure, etc.; now it is time to strongly consider moving forward with it.

This lunar cycle will be an important one, not only because Mars will be in action-oriented Aries the whole time; but also because there are two eclipses coming during the month ahead.

The first eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on February 10.  The second eclipse is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

Those eclipses and Mars in Aries promise lots of action, important world events, and a large shaking up of the status quo and business as usual.

There has been a changing of the guard from the Obama presidential administration to the Trump presidential team.

Those two administrations are very different, so the frequency and tone of government affairs has been vastly transformed.  And of course that translates into changes in the human affairs of people in our country and world.

Trump’s presidency is part of a greater movement in the western world toward nationalism.  Movement toward nationalism pushes countries toward firmer borders and toward a more restricted sense of what it means to be part of the country.

The last big wave of nationalism happened in the 1930’s.  That was when Germany and Hitler came to power.

That nationalism believed in keeping Germany’s people pure with German arian blood.

So the horror and genocide perpetrated on the Jews was part of that quite distorted form of nationalism.

And as other countries also became more nationalistic they firmed up their borders and saw those not of the same tribe or nation as enemies.  War often comes with waves of nationalism, and in the case of the 1930’s that meant World War II.

Germany was an extreme case of what nationalism can birth, as killing off a people within one’s borders is not the usual manifestation.

But you can see in the United States now a movement to eliminating Muslim influence and keeping out immigrants from Mexico by building a giant wall.

There is a movement toward elevating white caucasian influence in America and throughout much of western Europe.

Now of course there is a need to have a healthy dialogue around all this from different perspectives and opinions.

Keeping immigration legal and keeping terrorism out of a country has merit if done properly and compassionately and rationally.

Better defining of what makes a country true to its origins can be a valid consideration also.

But hatred and bigotry are never OK no matter what.

So as the Eclipse Season begins now at the Aquarius New Moon, and intensifies as we approach the actual eclipses starting on February 10; there will be a powerful emotional backlash to the recent executive orders of Donald Trump.

What we need is a rational respectful discussion of the important issues now facing our country and world, but with  the sharp split between red and blue cultures in the USA, and the growing wave of hatred and demonization of  those who are different; it is not likely to happen.

So keep in mind that Donald Trump is not ruining our country and world. That gives him way too much power that he does not possess.

He is just a part of a much larger wave of change in our country and world; and each one of us needs to stay awake and aware, needs to speak up for what we believe in, and have some faith that all is happening for a reason.

Donald Trump is not bigger than the Universe and is not more powerful than “Of the people, by the people and for the people”

The King of England lost to the revolution of the American colonies in the late 1700’s.  Nixon could not stop the 60’s revolution and was impeached as the unjust war in Viet Nam ended. The killings of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy did not stop the revolution either.

The people spoke loud and the world changed in alignment with the movement and values of the Universe.

And that is what can happen now too if we do not let our identification with being a victim take over.

We each need to honor our authentic self, and to trust that self, the Universe and our  human soul family to come together and create the Age of Aquarius.

It may have been dawning in the ’60s and ’70s, but it is now getting ready for manifestation.

Yes there are some really rough times ahead, but those rough times will bring with them much magic, much love, much awakening, and much joy from connection with each other and the Earth and Universe.

So this week begins a new lunar cycle on the way to February’s eclipses.   And Mars  now in Aries will be joined by Venus in Aries this coming Friday the 3rd.

That means spiritual warriors, both male (Mars) and female (Venus), are ready to rise up and fight for what we believe in (Aries).  This is no time to wring our hands and feel sorry for ourselves and our horrible fate with a Trump administration.

We are ready for the challenge.

On Thursday the 2nd of February is Imbolc, the sacred half way turning point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.   The groundhog is the modern representation of that time.

Imbolc was celebrated by our ancestors as an initiation time for humans.   The fiery Goddess Brigid was honored that day and is symbolic of that day.

We can use her fiery Feminine spirit now to initiate us into this New Chapter in human life on Earth.

Till next week,

Leo

Standing up for our Values and Astrology Forecast November 20-26.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 19, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

I have spoken with many individuals who have become very frightened since Donald Trump was elected President of the USA.

They are afraid that all the breakthroughs in rights for minorities and women that have opened up over the last several years will be closed up again.

They are afraid of bigotry and hatred spreading like wildfire through all our lives.

They are afraid that we will become a more fascistic nation, one run by a “strongman dictator” type person.

They are afraid that the values that keep this country’s soul alive are in danger of dying.

It is very understandable that people would be feeling this now because of what came out during the election process.   In fairness, some of what came out is true and some of what came out was exaggerated and demonized, as was Donald Trump.

Nevertheless we can expect the tone of governing created during the Obama years to be drastically changed now.  Grace, thoughtfulness, and fairness will almost certainly be in much shorter supply during the Trump years.

The pendulum is swinging back to a place it was in during the Bush years, Reagan years, and Nixon years.

But something is very different this time.  On the surface it looks and feels worse than the other more conservative years, but in the bigger picture, for the long term it must be what is needed.

We are closer now to the Age of Aquarius, no matter how it feels and looks right now.

As we submitted last week, the Nixon years felt at first like the end of the revolution and the stoppage of our evolution of consciousness; but it turned out to be a huge stimulus for greater than ever transformational change.

And now the fire is coming back in people’s eyes, and as an example a “Million Woman March” is scheduled for Inauguration Day to counteract the exposure of denigration towards women uncovered during the Election Process.

But the Cosby revelations already gave us a heads up that the issue of women’s rights and empowerment was needing a spotlight for our collective human family.

To get an even bigger picture let’s look at the Uranus/Pluto square that has been activated 2011-2016.

That time period has shown us what still needs to be cleaned up, healed, and transformed.

During that time we have woken up to the need to again facing issues of:  rights for African Americans and LGBT people; Russian and Chinese growing empowerment in the world; the rise of Islamic State and the fear of Islam; women’s rights; repairing the economy to work for all; nationalism vs. globalism; and a needed vision for our human family and Earth going forward.

And now at the end of this year 2016 we have truly entered an all new Chapter of Human Life on the road to the Age of Aquarius.

But these next 4-6 transitional years will be extremely intense and sometimes will look quite dark.

This new Trump regime is different than the other pendulum shifts to conservative.

That is because one of the firmly stated goals of the Trump/Bannon paradigm is to break down the old world of both Republican and Democrat parties, not just Democrats.

And as we have written many times, a breakdown of the old world is exactly what is needed for our transition into the Age of Aquarius.

And as we have stated it will look like a rather ugly process at times.

But we do need to clear our world of control by the Military/Industrial/Corporate complex.

And that breakdown will be initiated by Trumpian forces that are diammetrically opposed to what so many believe in.

So as a result, just like the “Million Woman March” in January, we all need to find our voice and empowerment, honor our deeper values, and speak up for what we believe in.

We the human family will be creating what this Age of Aquarius will be.

Right now nationalism, seen in the British Brexit leaving the Europen Union; Trump winning; Marine le Pen’s growing strength in Paris;  the Netanyahu coalition in Israel; and Putin’s Russia are growing fast.

This means world conflict is just around the corner of our lives.   Economic transformation is inevitable.

And Diversity in Unity, the rebirth of Love and Truth, spiritual renaissance, and the healing of our Earth is what we intend and must fight for.

Sitting on the sidelines and being a victim to what has happened with the Trump victory will not create the change we need.

Each one of us must work to be the change we want to see in our world, as Ghandi stated.

If we are pulled into fear and hatred and demonizing, we go against the values we believe in that will transform our world into the Age of Aquarius we desire.

This new chapter of our lives brings us a renewed sense of purpose and shows us why we were born at this time in the evolution of the world and human family.

This coming week November 20-26 we move into the 4th quarter Moon phase of the lunar cycle that began at the Scorpio New Moon on October 30.

The election happened during this lunar cycle.  And now as we go through the last quarter Moon, we let the recent events settle in.  We reflect on what has happened and prepare for the next new moon in Sagittarius on November 29.

Speaking of Sagittarius, the Sun moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius this Monday November 21.

We can begin to raise our vibration and get more clear about the meaning of events and meaning for our life.

We can more easily let in inspiration and joy if we are open in our hearts to that.

This will get even stronger at the New Moon in Sagittarius on November 29.

So for now as we move into the last quarter Moon phase and Sun in Sagittarius this week, we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the USA.

It is time to feel gratitude for what we cherish in our lives, to be with people who we love in our hearts.

Till next week,

Leo
