Full Moon Begins Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast December 8-14

The waxing moon reaches climax this week as it becomes a Full Moon in Gemini at 12:12 AM on December 12.

And unofficially, Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 is energizing and alive.

That Eclipse Season will be important as a major turning point for our world and personal lives.

There is no more straddling the fence of indecision; no more trying to be in two different worlds at the same time. It is time to choose or at least know one has to choose.

This Eclipse Season will contain many highlights: 2 eclipses; Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn; and Uranus shifting to Direct- out of Retrograde motion.

In the outer world we see a stock market in a big bubble ready to burst this winter; North Korea and China more intent on challenging the USA; Israel and Iran doing serious macho strutting with one another; and a USA impeachment process that is not headed for a peaceful solution.

In January, Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn at 22+ degrees of Capricorn will be closely opposing Trump’s natal Venus/Saturn conjunction in Cancer. His sense of stability and control will be seriously threatened. 

His natal Vertex, often a sign of “fated happenings” is at 22+ degrees of Capricorn, exactly conjunct the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12. This is a very difficult aspect for him.

This Saturn/Pluto conjunction is made even more potent as it is closely held inside the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon of Capricorn/Cancer at 20+ degrees of Capricorn on January 10.

Saturn and Pluto together are pretty serious. One (Saturn) is planet of time and gravity, while the other (Pluto) is the Guardian of the Underworld.  Together they are ruthless in destroying anything that is hanging around past its natural time of life.

This is a perfect time to eliminate the old ego stories that keep you stuck.  In some cases, it will be obvious that the old patterns need to go.  Remember that doing the same thing over and over again, looking for changes that will never come, is insanity.

And now Saturn/Pluto can help you to stop looking in the same places anymore for answers.  When you are committed to stop, new doors and windows will open, bringing in the fresh air of a new season for our lives.

I know it can feel daunting to enter new lands of possibility, and that the demon we know can be more appealing and less scary than strange situations we have never known.

But once in these new vistas of life, we let go into renewal and greater vitality.

And this week, as we begin to feel the breezes of the Eclipse Season that has its first eclipse on December 25/26, we are making ourselves be present and aware.

That consciousness will allow us to see and feel all the signs and symbols we need now, to keep us aligned and on track.

This current week begins in a bit of a misty fog in consciousness, as both the Sun and Venus make contact with Neptune on Sunday the 8th.

Wrestling with details and analytic mental processes is off the mark and will only bring confusion.  Best to surrender agenda with Neptune, just let go and surrender.

Mercury moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius on Monday the 9th, raising our mental vibration, being more open to inspiration and high-mindedness. It stays in Sagittarius until December 28.

Around the 9th, it is time to be in the aura of the approaching Full Moon in Gemini.  Before that exact full moon on the 12th, Venus makes exact conjunction with Saturn on the 11th.

Saturn conjunct Venus puts limits on the open heart’s natural give and take, and instead brings us more into “quid pro quo” negotiations to get you what you each want from each other.

The exact actual Full Moon in Gemini is on Thursday December 12 at 12:12 AM EST. (See all  the 12’s ?): 12/12 at 12:12 AM.   Twelve is a sacred number showing itself in the number of signs and houses of the zodiac and also the number of apostles of Jesus Christ.  It is considered more a sacred “male” number, while 13 is considered more a sacred female number.

For this new moon, we have the Sun in Sagittarius and the Moon directly opposed in Gemini at 19+ degrees.

This is usually a very animated time period, as people get more into communication. Conversations can be quite lively. Gemini provides the mental information and possibilities, while Sagittarius provides the conclusions, opinions and meaning.  Gemini is mostly left brain mental processing calculating and thinking, while Sagittarius is mostly intuitive “whole-making”.

With this Full Moon in Gemini, Neptune in Pisces is involved as it squares both the Sun and Moon.

Neptune may bring more confusion to the conversations at times, and at other times it will bring a deeper, more insightful and psychic approach to any issues.

Let the conversation take you and all will be fine.  Sometimes it is not the bottom line answers that matter the most. It is the connections between people that is most important.

Chiron goes Direct in Aries later on the 12th, building a bridge between your higher Self and your ego.

Then on Friday the 13th (one of my most favorite days), Mars in Scorpio trines Neptune while Venus conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn.

Mars in Scorpio trine Neptune keeps our actions connected to our soul, so that our inner values keep our desires in bounds.

Venus conjunct Pluto in Capricorn brings more insight and deeper connection to our relationships.  Superficial has little chance of getting our attention now, instead we become more aware of our needs for depth and closeness with others.

My partner Deborah and I leave our home for the last 16 years, as we travel to our new home in Sedona on December 16.

Some of the most soulful, thoughtful, kind and conscientious people live in Maine and New England.  They will always remain deeply in my heart.

Inner Voyages and Astrology Forecast February 3-9

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 2, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Jupiter went direct last week and Imbolc is being passed through now, so there is some sense of light at the end of the tunnel of our winter doldrums.   New enthusiasm and inspiration, especially for future endeavors, can be accessed now.

We are now in the second half of our Winter season here in the northern hemisphere of the Earth.   The Groundhog has spoken of light on the way for this coming Spring 2013.

In the year 2013, Bill Murray’s Groundhog Day same-old same-old reality will be broken open into a new day this year for all of us.

March 2013 promises a new crack of dawn for this year; and then for this Spring 2013,  Act I of our new world dramas will erupt into our collective global consciousness.

There will be three eclipses this spring, one more than the usual, and our world view will shake up considerably then.  Uranus square Pluto will have another exact meeting in Spring 2013 also, bringing world tensions to a full boil.

Later this year, especially in the autumn of 2013, when there are more eclipses and another Uranus/Pluto meeting, more great change will swirl into our lives.   Comet Ison, expected to a be an extremely bright one, comes also this Autumn 2013.

And then in April 2014, there is a Grand Cross Cardinal T-square, containing both Uranus and Pluto, making almost exact aspect to the USA natal Sun.  Spring Eclipse 2014 will also be going on then.

So world transformation, especially for the USA, will be very strong over the next year and a half or so.  This could be one of the biggest world change periods we have or will experience in our lifetimes.

This Spring 2013 will usher in the beginning stages of this huge change, and we will talk more specifics as we get into March 2013.

For now, however, there is a lot of slo-mo coming.   Mars has just gone into Pisces, and Mercury follows on Tuesday the 5th of February.   They will both be in conjunction with Neptune in Pisces this coming week.   Neptune went into Pisces in 2011 and will stay there until 2026.

Neptune loves to be in Pisces. Neptune, the god of the seas, guides our soul voyages in oceanic Pisces. Neptune is considered the “ruler” of Pisces.

Pisces represents the flow of inner soul life, the kingdom within.   It is the music and magic of the soul realm. It is also a very nebulous realm, one that cannot easily be measured or controlled like the physical world.

As Mars and Mercury go into Pisces and make conjunction with Neptune this week, it is best to let go and surrender any tight agendas or missions of ambition.  It is best to trust more that which is out of your control.  If you push too much you will be tend to be frustrated and disappointed.  If you make intention, and then let the flow of the soul realm and Universe take over, you will have less stress.

So even though we are in Sun in Aquarius time of year now, the Pisces waves are already flowing in.  The Sun will not be in Pisces until February 18.

Use this influx of Neptunian and Piscean energies now to be imaginative and creative and to enter deeper levels of poetic metaphors of consciousness.  There may be a greater  desire to escape “reality” and to dream more. In fact, this is a good time to look more closely at your dreams for deeper meaning.  The inner world beckons, and so is the potential for healing.

On Sunday February 3, we begin the last quarter phase of the Moon, in Scorpio.  Increased intensity of emotion may threaten desires to stay safely in the bubble of your mind.

The last quarter Moon also brings a week of moving yin-ward into your feelings and slower activity.  The last quarter Moon is time to reflect, correct, and prepare before the next new moon.

And the next New Moon is in Aquarius on Sunday February 10 at 2:20 AM EST.  That day also brings the Chinese New Year of the Snake.  The snake symbolically fits perfectly with the coming year of great transformation here on Earth, as the snake sheds its skins and renews.

But this coming week, before the New Moon in Aquarius, as we move through the last quarter waning Moon, and experience the inner flow of Neptune and Pisces, we lay back and enjoy.  We allow ourselves to release, to release old wounds, to release our need to control.

There is plenty of big change and lots of fiery energies coming this Spring 2013.   But for now take the voyage into your inner waters of soul.

The Aquarian Age is getting stronger and stronger in that inner world, and you can contact it from your soul now.  Remember that it is our consciousness, and  our belief systems that first take us to new realms.  And that Aquarian Age can be found inside now, in our imaginations and visualizations.

Then when the storms blow in to take our collective ship out of the Old Age into the Aquarian Age, you will already see and know our destination.  That knowing will give you the hope and strength to make it through the storms.

I have created a new Astrology Forecast 2013 for youtube, part 1.  And Part 2

The Inner Kingdom and Astrology Forecast for February 12-18

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on February 11, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

If you feel you are unsure of what you are doing or where you want to go or what you really desire, keep in mind that Mars will stay Retrograde until April 13/14.

It is during this time that we reflect on these issues, not yet ready to rev up our life engines and move forward. And of course to add to this stalling, we are still in winter; though at the end of this week, as the Sun goes into Pisces on February 18, we enter the last third of that season.

And to add to the waiting theme, the Moon is waning now, slowly losing its light and energy until new beginnings at the New Moon in Pisces on February 21.

So for now it may be best to try to relax and center in the deeper quiet of your soul. From that place, you will be guided to inner trails of knowing.  Neptune is in Pisces now until 2025, so we are getting used to being drawn into this inner spiritual sanctum.  After the Sun goes into Pisces on the 18th and the New Moon in Pisces on the 21st, the Neptune theme will get even stronger.

Have you been feeling more spacey lately, forgetting things, not knowing where you left something?  If so , do not worry you have some mental ailment. This is Neptune beginning to seduce you into its flowing Universe of inner surrender.

Neptune lets us know that finding answers is not about “figuring it out”, but about allowing the Universe to unfold before your inner eyes and sensitivities.  You will be taken to where the enlightenment, inspirations, knowledge, resolutions, and answers reside.

Neptune can help us to use the Mars Retrograde time period effectively, by helping us to dip inside the veils from outer reality.  From there we can rewind our consciousness to remember where we have been before, and to be shown what our deeper soul wants and where it wants to go.

Life is changing rapidly and soon, especially during the eclipse season this spring 2012, the changes will accelerate.  Your intellect cannot know exactly what changes are coming to our greater world and to your personal life. So it cannot “figure out” what to do.   But your deeper soul will show you in a timely fashion what is right for you and what directions to take.

Do not expect the answers to come right away.  Be patient and wait for your deeper soul to show you at the right time. Mars will be retrograde for another two months, and Mercury will join it in retrograde from mid March until early April.   You may not know what to do until after that.

Trust the process, and trust your inner wisdom and the wisdom of the Universe to reveal to you at the right time exactly what you need.

But of course you will need to be proactive in the process, by making a concerted effort to find the inner voice, through meditation and contemplation and trust.

It is also part of the process of Mars Retrograde to get in touch with personal empowerment issues. Have you been more in touch with anger or rage lately or remembered how others have sometimes been abusive to you?   People, especially women it seems, are given messages and programming that anger is ugly and unacceptable.

But anger can be an instinctual way of telling us that someone is mistreating us, or that we are getting frustrated, or that we need to take action, or create healthy boundaries.  Anger can be empowering if used properly.   Avoiding conflict is not always a good idea, as self assertion can be a way of seeking justice or fairness or speaking the truth.

In the greater world, during this Mars Retrograde period, much is stirring. The western world is troubled by Syria and Iran.  Syria and Iran and their allies are troubled by the western world and Israel.  From a very deep place in the collective unconscious it is being decided during this retrograde period what will happen. Will there be war?

It is also being decided what to do economically with Greece and Europe.  In fact the future of the economic system is being decided.

As we have stated before, a perfect storm is forming for the eclipse season.   If the storm forms the economy will falter and war will begin.   Perhaps such a big storm will not be necessary, and leaders will begin to tap into unity consciousness and bring about a diplomatic solution and a more fair economy for all.

But if that perfect wave of positive change does not flow, then the storm is inevitable.

The republican candidates, except for Ron Paul, are sounding very militaristic about Iran. President Obama is less militaristic, but nevertheless, said “all options are on the table” concerning Iran.

Is Obama another pawn for the Military/Industrial Empire complex, or can he lead the way to transforming our world view and finding peace?

Soon we will all find out just who he is.

Last Quarter Moon begins on Tuesday this week in Scorpio.   We are getting our selves together now, getting in positive mind frames and getting ready for big changes this spring. Use this last quarter Moon phase, and our movement into Pisces time of year (after February 18), to face any lingering demons and to release them and let them go.  Soon, this spring, we will be moving fast forward with no time to be burdened by the ghosts of the past.

Next week we will talk about how best to use the Pisces time of year, in anticipation of a strong Eclipse Season on its way.

See you next week,

Into the Mystic and Astrology Forecast for January 29- February 7

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on January 28, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We moved into a new zone last week, after the New Moon in Aquarius and Mars going retrograde.  Our lives are on pause/rewind now while Mars is retrograde, with issues being processed on levels sometimes deeper than we know.   It sometimes may feel like you are going backwards, as if gains you have made are being lost.  You are not going backward, this back and forth movement is part of the process. But if you try to move forcefully forward while Mars is retrograde, you will be stopped as it is not time yet.  You need more time to wait and see before you are ready.

Of course life goes on as normal in many ways too, but in other ways so much is shifting and changing.  The status quo is ripping apart. It is being held together on life support systems.

The changing of ages has us in a transition, but the semblance of security that the old world has given us is breaking apart.  That old world can no longer hold us, as it has little love and truth and soul in it anymore.  It is an empty structure, devoid of life substance.  It seeks to perpetuate its existence with smoke and mirrors and artificial prop ups.

Its world is filled with fast food takeouts and greasy burgers, nasty comments and only materialistic pursuits.  If you try to hold on you will go down with the ship.

So your system is now trying to help you to shed its toxins. Your body, soul and mind are releasing those toxins.   I know the zone you are in now may not feel very stable or secure sometimes, may not feel safe.  So you must reach deep for faith in life, faith in the Universe (God/Goddess), faith in your deeper soul.   Their process is often rather mysterious, not as left brain logical as that old world we are leaving behind.

Yes we must trust in the process now, have faith everything is moving just as should.  On the surface perhaps things sometimes look rather bleak, but looks can be deceiving.  When events seem to show us everything is falling apart, on a deeper level it is all coming together.

Look at what is falling apart in your life as your old world.  It needs to fall apart in order to make room for a new and healthier authentic you.  Your deeper soul is fighting for a sane, authentic, and healthy life, one aligned with the Universe and its progress into an Aquarian Age.

That Aquarian Age consciousness is bubbling deep inside, waiting to more fully enter our individual lives and world.  As old ways die, sometimes very painfully, we make room for new birth.

In the greater world, those old ways are dying hard. That perfect storm of economic and military chaos is slowly forming.  That old economy and military power has provided a sense of security here in the USA and western world.   Though it has often used greed and power abuse to gain and maintain its strength, it nevertheless has given its citizens a paradigm to live by that feels safe and secure.

But now we are on the verge of upheaval.

I alerted everyone to look for what would be happening with Iran as Mars goes retrograde, Mars being the god of war.  That day the European Union decided to put sanctions on Iranian oil and banks,not  starting until July, in order to give the European economies time to adjust to not having Iranian oil. The USA has already put similar sanctions on Iran.    China, India, Russia and others refuse to do the same, and are separating themselves from western countries.

In return Iran has threatened to close the Strait of Hormuz, where most of the world’s oil travels through. Iran this week has also threatened to stop oil shipments to Europe soon, before Europe plans to stop them in July. This would make the European people suffer high costs of oil.  War drums are beating over oil again.

That perfect storm we wrote about is beginning to form. While Mars stays retrograde, more will develop around Iran.  Israel this week also contributed to the Mars retrograde dialogue by stating that Iran is about to move to a place where they cannot be stopped from developing nuclear weapons. What they mean by this is that they (Israel) will soon need to stop the Iranian threat by attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities.

Mars goes back direct on April 14.  Movement forward will begin then. Until then realize that much will be “up in the air“. After that is a new and powerful eclipse season while Venus, planet of love and relationship, will then go retrograde also.  Matters of the heart will be on pause/rewind, processing and getting ready for new ways to relate.

This week the Moon is waxing toward the climax of a Full Moon in Leo next week on February 7.   This week also brings Neptune moving into Pisces on Friday February 3, where it will stay until 2025.

Neptune loves to be in Pisces, where it is at home. Neptune is the God of the Sea and Pisces is the ocean.    The movement is toward the mystical depths of soul, where poetry, metaphor, symbols and synchronicity are the language.    Logic can only be used as a tool to assist the liquid soul formlessness of Neptune in Pisces.

This is such  strong movement for deeper realities, the deep realities that give meaning to our material lives.  This is process, not goal orientation, and if you want to be in tune with this important shift in our collective consciousness, listen to your inner voice inside.  If you have been wanting to practice new forms of meditation, it is a good time now to begin.

If you want to dive deep into the mysteries lying beneath our waking state, go for it.   The spiritual world wants to have more of an influence on our lives now, and its values of unity, empathy, and compassion are ready to join our voyage into the Aquarian Age.   Peace is what we are moving toward as a human family, even as war brews on the surface of our reality.   Remember that as all seems to falling apart, on deeper levels it is all coming together.

See you next week,
