Communicating and Understanding and Astrology Forecast November 18-24

Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week showed us Venus passing the Retrograde baton to Mercury.  Mercury is now Retrograde until December 6, as Venus has gone back Direct.

What do Mercury and Venus have in common?  They are both about relating.

Mercury is communication, mostly mental and fast moving.  Venus is about relating, mostly from the heart.

Venus is also more indicative of the state of one’s relationships, romantic or otherwise.

Mercury is more indicative of thinking and analyzing, gaining information, and sharing the thoughts and information with others.

So with Venus going back Direct again now, we are beginning to move out of having our life spotlight on relationship issues, relationship patterns, relationship changes and healing.

Venus will not be back to where it started its Retrograde movement (10 degrees Scorpio) until mid December; so we still will need to repair, heal, find closure, or find some kind of resolution to relationships.

Last Friday Venus was going Direct on the same day as Mercury went Retrograde.  For many, the time surrounding those planetary movements were confusing,  disorienting, or difficult to understand.

Mercury will stay Retrograde until it goes back Direct on December 6, the same day as the New Moon in Sagittarius.

Remember that in the bigger picture we are moving out of an Old Chapter of our lives and into a New Chapter of our lives- on the way toward the Age of Aquarius.

With Mercury now Retrograde, we do not move forward right now. We ponder, reflect, and process.

We are best now if we do not try hard to find answers, do not jump to conclusions, do not hold onto or push rigid agendas.

With some people we are now in the process of saying goodbye, whether we consciously are aware of that or not.

With others we are in the process of seeing if it is possible to change old patterns and keep the relationship.

And in some cases we are wanting to know if a new relationship can be a part of our lives now.

As you look at the current state of relationships in the American political world,  the federal government is playing musical chairs with its employees. I have never before witnessed so much turnover in a president’s White House or Cabinet.

Mercury Retrograde promises more confusion and turnover in government, even while we still wait to see voting results from the recent Election Day.

So much is shifting and changing in our world, both collectively and personally.  It often seems like a replay of the revolutionary ’60s and ’70s, even including the comparisons between Presidents Nixon and Trump.

Nixon was the personification of what revolutionaries were fighting against.  To many, Trump now is the face of what is wrong in America.

One of the big differences between then and now is in how much more entrenched many are in the mud of our programmed world.

Yet the recent elections show a strong tide just beginning to form of people who believe we can change the world for the better.

Nixon was disgraced and left the presidency, the war in Viet Nam ended, rights for women and blacks had gotten so much stronger than before.  The world was truly beginning to transform.

Then there was a break in the revolution and evolution in the ’80s as Ronald Reagan’s administration sought to bring the country back to making “America Great again”.

And the revolution temporarily died as many people seemingly “sold out” and/or went to sleep. We were at that time likely meant to slow down and consolidate, before moving forward again.

Now over the last several years, the urge for change, transformation, revolution and evolution has picked up steam again.

And just like the ’60s and ’70s, there is a wall being built to stop the change.  Trump is the face on that wall for many.

And now as we move past 2018 soon, people are passionate about breaking down that wall.

And now there is much more likelihood  than in the ’60s, of everything crashing down in order to make space for this New Age to enter.

This wall coming down is like drawing the Tower Card of Tarot.  As it is coming down, some are feeling panic; others are feeling liberated from a confining world paradigm.

Many people will be “taking up arms” and picking sides for battle.  I suppose some are meant to do just that.

As the wall gets more cracks and holes in it from the Transformation getting more powerful, those in power will try to dominate and bully to “keep the order”.

And that could get ugly, just as it was when Jim Acosta, the newsman, was having his access to the White House taken away.

It has been subsequently given back to him by court order, but that kind of issue will get more and more difficult in coming months: to dominate those who disagree with you.

The old system will feel the need to dominate and control the citizens, forsaking the laws and principles of this country and its constitution.

Order will then be threatened by Chaos, and the wall will come down.

After Mercury goes Direct and there is a New Moon in Sagittarius on December 6, we will be in the early moments of the next Eclipse Season, which shows its first of two eclipses on January 5: a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn conjunct both Saturn and Pluto. 

And the walls came tumbling down.  Revolutionary Uranus will be changing from Retrograde to Direct on the same day.

But for now we are feeling our way through what needs to be let go and what stays. We are reflecting on our life priorities, on what gives our life meaning and where is our sense of direction and purpose now.

This week has the waxing Moon moving up toward a Full Moon in Gemini, as the Sun also moves into Sagittarius on Thursday/Friday November 22/23.

This Full Moon is exact on November 23 at 12:39 AM EST. Making this full moon more important and meaningful is the result of Jupiter being closely conjunct the Sun in Sagittarius and opposite that Moon in Gemini.

Making it even more meaningful is the fact that Mars in Pisces will be square to that Full Moon, creating a mutable T-Square.  This is a strongly influential Full Moon signature.

Complicating matters more is that Neptune’s fog will appear as Neptune moves from Retrograde to Direct on the 24th.

And of course Mercury is now and will be then Retrograde.

Sharing information and wanting to find answers are themes for this Full Moon. Communication through talking, texting, and email will be more important then usual.

There may be confusion in understanding what is being said or what is going on.  For some it will be a mental shit show, for others it may feel more mystical and otherworldly.

It has been getting more and more challenging to know what is fake news or fake information or fake pictures and stories.

As we come up on this complicated full moon with Mercury Retrograde, resist the temptation to figure it all out, or to fix it, or make it happen.

The more we push the river to flow faster, the more frustrated we will be. The more we jump to conclusions, the more we will get out of balance.

There is much emphasis on communication this week.  But it may be quite difficult to understand and make sense of everything. Too much expectation will bring too much disappointment now.

Trust and have faith in the Universe and yourself, that all is moving as it should, and that answers and meaning will appear at just the right time.

Raising the Intensity Temperature and Astrology Forecast November 19-25.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on November 18, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The weekend that begins this forecast is rather powerful as there is a New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th and Mars squares Pluto on the 19th. That is a lot of power that needs to be expressed and released.

It is a volatile time now, with our needing to do some deep soul work,  which sometimes is rather difficult and painful. Many are now having their deeper demons coming up to their awareness, so they can purge and heal them.  In that process, a new birth wants to emerge, but only if the old dysfunctional energies and patterns are released sufficiently.

Scorpio is the sign of deep transformational soul work, and this New Moon in Scorpio will initiate a deepening of the soul work, and a stronger desire to live in that New Chapter of your life.

As we have talked about previously Scorpio is a sign of primal power, an energy of deep transformation and core truths. There is no with Scorpio. It is real.  It is passionate.  It is deeply in touch with both death and birth. And Mars square Pluto this week brings even more power of transformation.

Mars is the planet of Aries, and as such is straight forward, direct, and active.   Pluto is the planet of Scorpio and as such is deep and powerful and transformative.  Together Mars and Pluto are explosive and can be rather destructive. Yet it is mainly about destroying, sometimes rather ruthlessly, the old patterns, forms, or relationships that are not meant to come with you in this New Chapter.

To be properly aligned now, stay in touch with your core self and core truth now, your passions, and with your natural empowerment.   Be as discerning as you can between healthy personal empowerment and unhealthy desires to have power over someone or even to have revenge or to hurt someone else.

To feel those emotions may be natural in some circumstances, but to feed those feelings or to act on them cannot be a good thing for you or anyone else.

Stay aware of these energies inside your self, in others or out in the world.  Be aware if you are being triggered to act in an angry confrontational manner.  Really nasty arguments or fights are more likely during this time period.  World events that bring great turmoil are more likely during this lunar cycle than usual.

Hot spots in the world will be more susceptible to outbursts than usual.

Yet for many this will be a most positive new moon and lunar cycle.  You may get in touch with your deepest empowerment and healthy passions that will assist you in self actualization and standing up with your truth.

You may be ready now to take the ride of deep transformation,  to follow your passion or honestly speak out about what you have suppressed in the past.

There are things that are ready to burst forward now in a big way,

Also this week the Sun moves into Sagittarius on Tuesday November 21. And then on Wednesday the 22nd Neptune changes directions from retrograde to Direct.

Neptune is in its favorite sign Pisces, as it changes directions to Direct, showers its natural energy through our psyches.  Neptune seeks to bring us into a flow and in that process have us surrender to the non material plane, the “world behind the world”.

Music, meditation, spiritual practices, nature, and dance bring us into Neptunian realms.  Neptune also rules escapism, and so desires for drugs or alcohol can be stronger when Neptune is around too.

It is best during a few days surrounding this Neptune movement to let go any strict agendas or tight schedules or fast action.  If one gets out of alignment now,  they can feel spacey, forget things, have difficulty remembering, and get generally confused or chaotic.

If you use this time to let go and go with the flow, you will be fine.

The Sun in Sagittarius on the 21sr runs counter to the New Moon in Scorpio.  Pluto the ruler of Scorpio is the Guardian of the Underworld.   Jupiter the ruler of Sagittarius, is a God of the higher Heavens.

So even while you are doing your deep soul work in your deepest emotions, you will be called to raise your vibration, to seek higher meaning, to find your inspiration and get in touch with your needs for upliftment, joy, or adventure.

The Holiday spirit is aligned with the Sun moving into Sagittarius.  But the demons of old family patterns may  arise, which would be aligned with the Scorpio energies.

And of course these family issues come up so you can potentially deal with them in a more constructive and transformative manner.  Leaving old family dramas behind is necessary in the transformational process.  Otherwise our baggage in the New Chapter is too heavy and slows us down or even worse holds us back from healthy growth.

We are also now coming closer to the Winter Solstice, which is about a month from now.  So darker days and darker moods can be difficult for some.

But positive holiday Sagittarius spirit can get strong too, as well as feelings of happiness and joy and hope.  But if we get too attached to the material consumer part of the holiday season, we will be brought down into anxiety and negativity.

Half way through this Scorpio lunar cycle, on December 3,we will get a Full Moon in Gemini as Mercury goes Retrograde.  More on that as we get closer to the date.

Powerful world events will not disappear during the holiday season.  In fact this Scorpio New Moon may trigger pent up emotions to erupt.

But even more likely, early next year during the next Eclipse Season of January through March , world issues will build into much greater intensity.  This will likely bring important events that will motivate us to make changes and transform our consciousness in order to leave behind old programming that keeps us stuck and miserable.

Till next week

Aftermath, Bigger Picture and Astrology Forecast November 13-19

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 12, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Election in America has moved all of us into a New Era of our lives.   So many people I know are deeply upset by the results of that election.  Some of them are feeling deep despair and cannot believe the Universe has taken such (to them) a wrong turn on our path into a new age or new world.

They feel that the last 8 years of President Obama have opened the doors leading to the new age and they hoped that trajectory would continue with the new president. But in their minds it has not with the election of Donald Trump.

This blog has been attempting over the last several months to get us all ready for the Trump win, which in my mind was meant to be.  “You can’t always get what you want”…..but you get what you need.” But why him?

Let’s go back and look at our past and the astrological movements that have unfolded over recent times.

There are three transformational planets: Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.  They have been relatively recently discovered: 1781, 1846, 1930 respectively.

Their discoveries have coincided with our reaching the cusp of the Age of Aquarius.  They are meant to help each of us and our human collective to transform and evolve our consciousness and lives aligned with this new age.

When any two of those three make an aspect with one another it brings a great wave  of transformation, revolution and evolution.

As an example when Uranus made conjunction with Neptune in 1992-1994 the computer and internet revolution began to sweep through our lives. It is now a daily and integral part of all of our lives.  

When Uranus made conjunction with Pluto in 1965-66, it brought on the ’60s and ’70s revolution which dramatically transformed all of our lives as it woke us up to what needed to change in our lives and world.

Back then people sought to end an unjust war in Viet Nam, bring civil rights to race relations and gender issues. Blacks and women were then oppressed in the chains that society had dominated them with.

A corrupt and insensitive USA government was revealed, there was a sexual revolution, there was a clamor for people to take back the world from leaders who took away their individual freedoms and voices.

Yet in the middle of this revolution Richard Nixon was elected to be president in 1968.    This brought such a devastated emotional response from the people, especially young people, who had been previously inspired to transform our country and world. Nixon represented a most restrictive and conservative blockage to the movement forward.

That election combined with the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy that  same year 1968, brought people to their knees in horror, fear and depression.

Nevertheless the revolution continued and before long the war ended and President Nixon resigned from his presidency in the mid ’70s.  Rights for women and African Americans were solidified at that time also. The world had been transformed.

Fast forward to 2011-2016.  Uranus and Pluto have been square to one another, the first major aspect between them since 1965-66 when they were conjunct.

Gays and Lesbians gained the right to marry during that time period.  Ferguson and other cities in the USA erupted in protest at the killings of black people by the police, bringing renewed awareness to racial issues that needed more justice and clearing.

The Islamic State was largely born out of the devastation from another unjust war in Iraq during that time.

Government and Corporate controls of our lives and freedoms were exposed more fully.  The anti Wall Street movement was then born.

Bernie Sanders then in 2015-16 also began his mission to fight the corporations and societal paradigm that separates the wealthy from the 99% who are not very wealthy on this Earth and in America.

The Arab Spring also brought more awareness of dictator control in the Middle East and North Africa.

And in 2016 the presidential election process brought more awareness to the reality of women’s continued fight to be empowered and even more liberated from old societal chains.

And now we have our Richard Nixon in the form of Donald Trump, our new USA president.

The revolution and its attendent motivation for our evolution will be stoked more than ever.

There is no stopping the train barreling toward the Age of Aquarius. No one person or president can derail our movement forward.  But we do need to bring aboard some of those who have not felt understood, who have lost jobs and lives in recent years. And those people voted for Trump.

And as before the young people are revved up to change this world.  And with the empathy and guidance from their elders we will together move forward into this New Age.

So please get up and take responsibility for how you will contribute to this movement.

This week November 13-19 brings a Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus on Monday November 14 at 8:52 AM EST.

Some are calling it a Supermoon as it will be much closer, larger and brighter than usual. It has not been this big since January 1948. In USA it will be best seen on ight of November 13.

More important is the meaning of the Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon.

Like all Full Moons this one takes us to a sense of completion and resolution.

And as it is being formed by the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus, it shows us we are moving toward balancing our more deeply felt passions and emotions (Scorpio) with our sense of solidly and calm (Taurus).

In regards to the election there may be a tug of war inside you between deeply held emotions and passions on the one hand, and a calm centered acceptance on the other hand.

This Full Moon represents a turning point for our attitudes and should be felt from Saturday through Wednesday this coming week, with the most intensity closer to the exact date.

On Saturday November 19 Neptune will be shifting from Retrograde to Direct.  As it goes stationary and then Direct we experience its energy and meaning.

This coming week we will have the Neptunian energies of empathy, compassion, surrender, and escape getting stronger.

Escape may be seductive as a means to ignore reality now.  Empathy is a good trait now to better understand why some people voted the way they did.   For most people it was not about racism and sexism.

And Neptune helps us to surrender- which can help us to let go to a process bigger than we each are, and it can help us to better trust the Universe and its wisdom.

We are all in this together.

Till next week

Ruminating in the Cave and Astrology Forecast November 16-22

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 15, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week is the last quarter of the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 23.    We are passing through the second Eclipse Season of 2014, and quite a ways past now from the Cardinal Grand Cross that was earlier this year.

Much of the dust should be settling from the intensity of the stormy winds of change this year.  As we enter the last quarter lunar cycle, Neptune is changing directions on the 16th also.  As it shifts from Retrograde to Direct, its inner directed soulful flowing water waves take us deep inside.  It is time this week to ruminate and reflect and heal.   Venus moving into Sagittarius brings some upliftment through human interaction, but the overriding energy this week drives us inward and yin-ward.

Whether you are totally aware of it or not, you have entered a new season or chapter of your life this year.  Just look back at where you were in February of 2014, and look at where you are now.

For many these last several months have been earth shaking with change.  For others the change has been more internal, with their attitudes and belief systems. And maybe also they have been awakened to dysfunctional patterns of behavior or relating that they are in the process of shifting and transforming.

You may not yet know exactly where you are going yet, but you should know by now where you do not want to go or do anymore

The greater world has also gone through immense changes this year.  Back in February there was no Ukraine/Russia issue that threatened old world security.  ISIS had not yet overtaken Mosul, the second biggest city in Iraq, and alerted the world that they were a grave danger to the structure and security of the world and its paradigm.  Ebola was not a great scare yet, and the Palestinians and Israeli’s were still at a plateau of pretending to get along.

Now it should also be even more obvious that the USA governmental bodies, including the Supreme Court, are bought out or at least heavily influenced by Big Money and Big Corporations.  Many fear just how much further we will stray away from our liberty and freedom, but also from our most cherished human values like care for those who are vulnerable or respect for the dignity of all human beings.

How much have we learned to bury our heads in the sands of our electronic devices or busy outer directed lives?   There is so much that is shaking up and changing, yet the media, government and other institutions, though quite obsessed with all the troubles, nevertheless show little promise for showing the way into a new paradigm for living with each other or being in sacredness on this Earth.

But in our own lives, in our own hearts and souls, we are making the changes.   We are coming to realize that leading a life of authenticity is not only desired but essential.  We are learning that our souls and hearts are as important as making our practical lives work well.  We know that we can no longer be OK with being robotic conformists to a world that is not aligned with higher and deeper values, in fact a world that does not see meaning beyond blind loyalty to country, family, and perhaps religion.

Loyalty is a valued trait, but it is an empty structure if not connected to our free hearts, souls, and minds.   Should we be loyal to a country that is driven by Big Corporations and uses the police and military to keep that system intact, even if unfair? Should we be loyal to families that do honor our authenticity or even see us?  Should we be loyal to religions built mainly on empty rules or guilt?

Should not your loyalty be to that or those who are true to deeper values, to love, compassion, fairness and truth?  Should not your primary loyalty be to your authentic soul self and the Universe/God/Goddess?

If these past several months have mainly served helping you to return or further commit to your true and deeper values, to your free mind and heart, to what you know is aligned and with meaning, then you have done well, regardless of material circumstances.

That old chapter of your life is dead and almost buried now, and death is a reality of life.  We may fight its reality with anger, denial, or any of the other stages of accepting death or endings.  There is no going back to how it used to be, to what was considered normal.  It may thus bring sadness and grief, but it also eventually brings renewal and new life.

So now as we enter the last quarter moon cycle, one that moves to a dark moon this week, we let go even more that old phase of our lives, not only on a practical level, but also on a deeper level in our hearts and souls.

If you have been remembering days gone by lately, you are doing what is natural now.  The darkness is stronger this time of year and even more so at a last quarter Moon that brings the end of the Autumn Eclipse Season.  And with Neptune also strong now, most of this week is best experienced with inner reflection.

But next Saturday November 22 brings a big energy shift.  There is a New Moon in Sagittarius on Saturday November 22 at 7:32 AM EST.

Sagittarius requires faith that all is happening for a reason, happening with meaning.    Sagittarius is the centaur with the top half being a human being archer shooting its arrows up to the heavens, searching for that which uplifts, with what has meaning, with what inspires, with what brings joy and maybe new adventure.

In your life and in the greater world, there will be more fire (Sagittarius is a fire sign) to raise a flag for doing what you believe in.  You will have more faith to do what you feel is right to do.

In the greater world, this will mean that countries or leaders will move beyond indecision and do what they feel is best to do.    It will be time to act on one’s beliefs. Watch for events in ferguson Missouri.

Keep in mind that Sagittarius is driven by a strong intuition, and sometimes that intuition can bring with it an impulsiveness to act.

Just check the facts and details before going full blast in a new direction.  Yes it is time to move forward, but you do not need to go all the way all at once.

And also here in America we are close to beginning what is a holiday season for many, and that alone may bring more Sagittarian joy into people’s lives if they do not become too immersed in consumerism and materialism and stress.

There is another exact Uranus square Pluto aspect to experience this year on December 15 and an unusually strong Winter Solstice after that.

See you next week,


The new Autumn Eclipse Season Forecast is ready to view .

Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon and Astrology Forecast for November 6-12

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on November 5, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The winds of the coming Eclipse Season pick up their force this week.  In the middle of the upcoming week, Neptune changes directions and there is a Full Moon in Taurus.  These planetary events open the windows of the eclipse season,  so you can begin to feel these winds of change.

Eclipses bring increased intensity into our psyches and lives. They take us off our contented plateaus of existence, and help us to make needed changes.  The first eclipse will be on November 24/25 at 2+ degrees of Sagittarius. It will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon.  The second one is on December 10, and is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini. The Eclipse season will last approximately until around the Winter Solstice.

The Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus this week is the last major lunation before that first eclipse. It is two weeks prior to the Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius, which happens Thanksgiving night here in America.

So the themes of the Eclipse Season in your life should begin to appear soon, if they have not already begun.  And the themes for the Eclipse Season in the greater world will begin to show us events after the Full Moon in Taurus this week.

Some of those greater world themes are already showing up. The Powers that Were of our old world are beginning to beat the drums of war against Iran.  As we have mentioned before, the shake up of the Middle East is an ignition of the fires of transformation that will clear the way into an Aquarian Age.

The Middle East is a center of the old religions, Christianity, Islam, Judaism.  Part of the movement into an Aquarian Age is a Spiritual Renaissance, a transformation of these old religions, which have clogged arteries of spirituality.   There is a war of cultures between Islam and Judeo/Christian that threatens all of our existences.  Here in the Middle East is where healing is desperately needed.

As with much healing, a catharsis is needed first, one that brings all the tensions and issues to the surface before the healing.

This week there is the Haji, what is considered a sacred pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Millions will make this pilgramage. It ends around the time of the Full Moon. Watch for potential powerful events to happen there.

We desperately need Unity between the cultures of Islam and Judeo/Christian.   Israel and the United States are planning a military attack on Iran.  They may decide to do this during the Eclipse Season.    All of us around the western world now need more than ever to release our prejudging of this Islamic culture.

The Powers that Were in our western world are going to amp up the demonizing of Iran, just as we demonized Iraq and Saddam Hussein, and Libya and Moammar Ghadafi.  This demonizing is for the purpose of getting us to hate and wanting to destroy these other peoples.

We are moving into  an Aquarian Age of Diversity in Unity, when all are accepted in their individual authenticity, in wholeness with our human community.  Move your consciousness, during this Eclipse Season, into Unity Consciousness, away from the fear mongering of our prevailing main culture and its lamestream media.

Think for your self, open to the truth in your heart and mind, beyond the programming of culture.  No country is directly threatening us now, and if Iran develops a nuclear weapon it will be like an ant compared to American and Israeli weapons of mass destruction.

Peace in our world is directly influenced by peace in our hearts.     Peace and brotherhood and sisterhood are needed more than ever.

The revolutions will not stop now, as people all over the world are sick and tired of being controlled by Mega Corporations and corrupt governments.  We are ready to leave behind the inane paradigm of the conservative versus liberal conflict.

Finding the truth is easier if you do not wear a uniform of liberal or conservative. Truth is that conservative opinion is correct that too much government is destroying  us all. Truth is that liberal opinion is correct that the wealthy and big corporate interests are destroying us all.

It is time for a new world, beyond the conservative and liberal, beyond the democrat and republican, beyond capitalist versus socialist.

We now need a world that does not care about who is right, and winning for your team or party. Our world needs power to the people of this world, power to people who care about our planet and human family, power to doing what is best for us all, not just what is best for our team of people.

We need people who will get real about the dangers that face us, like weapons of mass destruction and climate change, and finding new energy sources, etc.    The childish tit-for-tat must end or we will.    The current and approaching events will help us to blow open the pathways into healing, transformation and sane solutions to our challenges.

Use this eclipse season to look in the mirror of your personal life and soul, so you can see what needs to be changed.    If you want to liberate your self from the chains that hold you back from leading a more authentic life, aligned with your true self and the Universe and the needs of our human community here on Earth; then it is important to be awake and alert to the signs of change for your life.

The Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus is on Thursday November 10 at 3:16 PM EST.  Neptune goes direct on Wednesday November 9. These aspects, especially so as they open the Eclipse season, will bring us a big energetic shift.

Emotional intensity should be increasing.   Issues that come up may be disorienting and confusing.  Neptune suggests that it is best to let go and let the Universe, to go with the flow and not try too hard at anything.

Conflicts can occur at this Taurus Full Moon that are based on tugs of war or power struggles.   Decisions on what to hold onto and what to release may also come up for you now. Do your best to get in touch with what you need to keep and what is ready to go.

Look for signs and synchronicities now that will show you what is to be experienced during this eclipse season.   If you are a Taurus or Scorpio by Sun sign, you will experience this full moon most intensely, especially if you are born around this time.

For all of us intensities will increase after this Full Moon, as we get closer to that first eclipse on November 24/25.

Remember, all of us, all over the world are one big family, whether our consciousness can see this or not.  We are all connected by our common humanity, and let us hope we do not need our conflicts to get to the insane edge in order to get it.

See you next week,

Raging Rivers of Emotions and Astrology Forecast for November 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on November 6, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

I know many people are feeling very upset about the elections this past week. 

So much has changed in 2 years.  Many felt so elated when Barack Obama was elected President; felt that the world was going to transform in a very positive way. They were so tired of the George Bush years. They felt that the election of Obama would bring fresh new beginnings to our country and world.  There is much disillusion now.

Obama inherited a gravely difficult situation.   There was the beginning of a horrible recession. The failure of Leyman Brothers and the subsequent crash of our economy happened a couple of months before his election.   We were locked into two wars. One that was started in Iraq was begun on totally false premises and lies. Much of the world, and especially the Muslim world, had been losing faith in the leadership of America.   Democrats and Republicans were not working well together for the common good.   There was an obvious culture war in America that was getting worse.

Not much has really changed over the last two years. The recession is still looming over our world.  Our role in Iraq appears to be lessening, but we are now more entangled in Afghanistan.  The Muslim world at first seemed open to the new presidency.  But since America is still commited mainly to the welfare of Israel over the Palestinians, and because Americans seem still fearful and hateful toward Muslims, there is not much improvement between cultures.  And Democrats and Republicans still are at war with one another, and still do not make the common good their top priority.   And now with the emergence of the Tea Party, there now is even more culture war than before, or at least more out in the open of the mainstream world.

The Obama administration has accomplishments they point to, but not much has really changed in America.  In fact for most progressives, with the elections bringing in so many more republicans, things may seem worse than ever.

I know I had hoped the Obama election would help us to more gracefully transform out of an old Pisces Age, and to embrace more easily a new Aquarian Age.  But Obama has not been a strong leader or inspiration for new ideas and ways.  He has not set a strong paradigm for where we are headed as an American and human family.   Ex presidents like Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan set a strong tone and gave strong leadership during critical times in America.   They showed a way that they felt we needed to follow.   They each believed they had captured the pulse of the nation and world, and led accordingly.

Obama has been very gentle and intelligent, respectful and diplomatic.   He has not lit a fire in the American people that inspires new clear direction.  He has not talked directly to us to let us know where he wants to lead.  

But these times are so different than before.  The power of special interests and corporations is much more than ever before.  The Military/Economic establishment now does not allow much individual creative input.    The structure of our world is so closed to anything new or outside its rules and regulations.    We hoped Obama was “bigger than life” and could shake up the system, so new lights from the Aquarian Age could shine through.  But he does not seem to be that person.

So now it appears that our collective human journey is about to experience big shocks and aftershocks to break down these old ways and structures that attempt to keep out the light of the a new Paradigm and Age.  Obama always said during his candidacy that “we are the ones we have been waiting for”. Now it is more true than ever before, as we know no single person like Obama will be saving us and leading us forward.

The Pisces Age began with the savior Christ over two thousand years ago.  The Aquarian Age is about the people taking responsibility for their Earth and world. It is about liberating our selves from the modern world kings and queens, liberating ourselves from dictators and governments and corporations and religions that run and dominate our lives.

And now as we enter the time from late October 2010 to late January 2011, we face many astrological aspects that will trigger and release big events that will shake up our world, break down old obsolete ways, and bring breakthroughs into new and better ways.

We will know more and more that we are leaving an old paradigm and age and entering a new paradigm and Aquarian Age.

Astrology report for November 7-13

There was a strong New Moon in Scorpion last night that enflamed people and their relationships.  This New Moon in Scorpio has happened in the middle of the Venus Retrograde in Scorpio time period.  If any of your relationships issues broke open into more intensity around this new moon, you are not alone.   These issues were being suppressed and needed to be brought out into the open.   Now you can work at it from a more real and deeper place.    As Venus leaves Scorpio, while still retrograde, and enters Libra Sunday; you can more calmly and peacefully discuss the issues.  If horrible things were said during this retrograde period, remember much was likely said because you or someone else felt very wounded or rejected. Talking, especially in a counseling setting, can get to real and deeper issues, so you can heal, transform and work it out together.

It is important to remember that we are all so hurt from our families and prior relationships.   We are not taught how to have healthy and functional relationships. With this knowledge we can learn to not be so judgmental of ourselves and others. We can learn to listen and be listened to in more authentic ways.

The Scorpio New Moon of yesterday ignites our emotional energies and expression more.  We will feel more deeply and tend to express more emotionally. The energy field is more intense now and more primal energies and emotions are stoked.

To potentially add to the confusion of our emotions and the direction of our relationships and lives, Neptune is slowing down now and canging from retrograde to direct- overnight Saturday into Sunday.    We do turn our clocks back then also to give the impression of even darker days, as the night comes sooner.  Be careful not to dip into any big depression now, but instead use the increasingly yin energies to be more reflective, more appreciative, more sensitive to others and your own inner world and needs.

Do not push, especially with a prominent Neptune now, for more quick answers and direction. Surrender to the process and let the clarity unfold.    Yielding to the Universe’s movement now will relieve the stress. The river cannot be pushed now to flow at the pace you want it to.

Have a meaningful week,

Transformational energies of Saturn/Pluto, Astrology Forecast for November 1-November 7

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2009 by spiritualtherapy

The first pass of Saturn square Pluto is now in orb (in influence) as Saturn just went into Libra on Thursday the 29th.  November 15 is the actual date of their meeting.

In line with that aspect, the stock market went down over 250 points today, and Iran turned down an important UN offer to be a part of its uranium enrichment process, which is instrumental in making a bomb.

The stock market’s retreat is because there was a report showing that consumers were still not spending money.  Americans spending money is the most important ingredient for stoking the fires of the economy.    Not spending and high unemployment show we have a long way to go to get the economy out of recession.

The government and media are trying to convince us that all the signs and reports point to a recovering economy, but polls of average Americans show a much different story.   These recent polls show that people are much less hopeful than government reports.

In the bigger picture, the American and world wide economic system does not serve our human family, as it has caused such a wide discrepancy between rich and everyone else.  In an Aquarian Age, which we are on the cusp of, inequality and inequity will not work anymore.   Saturn/Pluto will help to destroy the old to make way for new economic forms, structures and institutions.

Iran’s refusal to agree to the UN offer brings a dark cloud over the Middle East, which brings dark clouds all over the globe.  Israel is hence getting closer to their bombing of Iranian land, in order to destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities.

In the bigger picture there will be huge transformation of our world power structure, which begins with it huge changes in the Middle East.

There were two superpowers when the USSR and the USA were at odds with one another.  Since the end of the USSR there has been only one superpower, the USA.

By 2020 when the Aquarian Age will be more fully opened, there will be a more equal distribution of world power.   China, India, Pakistan, Iran, USA, and Europe will be on more equal footing with one another.  It is also possible that we will have many mini-states or city states, like there was in Renaissance Italy, instead of the major nations that currently cover our Earth community

Make no mistake about it, Saturn and Pluto together can bring much devastation in their process of powerful transformation.  They destroy old forms and structures, and clear the way for new birth, new forms and structures.

Saturn was conjunct Pluto the year World War I started (1914); and the year World War II started (1939) Saturn squared Pluto.  Saturn opposed Pluto in August 2001, just before the twin towers were brought down.

Events that dramatic do not always happen when Pluto and Saturn make hard aspect with one another, but more often than not.  Because there are so many powerful aspects in 2010, we can expect dramatic events to unfold, especially so because we are on the cusp now of an Aquarian Age.

So expect explosive events to happen over the next year, as Saturn makes 3 passes in square to Pluto during that time.

In personal lives it is time to let go of that which needs to die in your life and consciousness.  If you hold on it only will cause you more pain and suffering.

It is important to remember that we are each part of the building of a new world, a new age.   Letting go of fear and instead trusting life is most important now.   Death and birth are always swirling around together in our human Earth experience.

Have you not watched as a new baby is born in families, that around the same time someone or some pet dies, or a relationship or job ends?

So each of us is also going through our own changes in line with the changes going on in the world.  I have noticed many friends, family, and clients recently going through many challenging and sometimes traumatic events in their lives.

As Saturn makes aspect to Pluto now, do your best to let go of that which is holding you back from embracing the new world inside of you and in your life.

This new world begins with your caring about your true and authentic self, not the self that has been programmed to fit in and be what others want you to be.

Let go of people and situations that keep you stuck in old ways of being and seeing your self.  Sometimes when someone leaves us or we lose a job, for instance, it means it is time to let go of an old shell of ourselves.

That person or job helped keep us in patterns and reactions that belied who we were becoming, belied our true and authentic selves and belied a life more attuned to a sense of purpose.

As you get more connected to your true self, you also connect to new ways to live, to healthier ways of being.   You care more about our human community and the world we live in.  You care more about how you eat and how healthy your life is physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

You see signs and symbols and synchronicities that light your path and give your life direction.  You know you are connected and aligned with your deeper self and the Universe.

So as the walls of our old world fall down, do not be afraid.  You will be guided to where you need to be and what you need to do.

Astrology Forecast for November 1- November 7

We are now two weeks away from the first pass of Saturn square Pluto.  Watch for signs the economy is losing its old sense of normal.  This could mean there are signs the economy is not in recovery mode, as has been reported.   Look for signs that Iran is a place that world powers and especially Israel are considering bombing before spring 2010.

Watch especially the stress and weight of problems being brought to President Obama.  The Saturn square Pluto aspect makes very close aspect to the President’s natal Venus in Cancer.  It will be quite difficult now for the president to feel safe and nurtured.     This aspect portends grave challenges for him during the holiday season and beyond.

On November 1, as we set our clocks back Mercury squares Mars and shows that conversations can be intense and passionate.   Energies are shifting also as we approach a Full Moon.

The actual Full Moon will be in Scorpio/Taurus on Monday the 2nd at 2:14 PM EST and 11:14 AM PST.  Taurus governs “taking in and holding in”, and Scorpio is letting out and releasing.    Taurus holds on, stays calm, and will not give in or react.  Scorpio intensifies emotions and can disrupt tranquility.

The intensity of the full moon is usually a day or two before the full moon until a day or two after the full moon.   With Mars in Leo square the Sun and Moon, this full moon could bring out intense emotions and power struggles.

On Wednesday Neptune goes direct and the inner mysteries of life become more apparent.   It may be more difficult to stay directed, but easier to let go and trust.  Some may even feel more “spacey” now. The more you can go with the flow for a couple of days, the better.

On Friday the Moon moves into Cancer and helps us to feel more safe and nurtured.  The next couple of days, with the Moon in Cancer, find time to escape your normal running around and find cozy comfortable surroundings.

See you next week,
