Eclipse Season Begins and Astrology Forecast July 23-29.

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We enter Eclipse Season this week, as it begins at the Leo New Moon Sunday July 23 at 5:46 AM EDT.

There will be more pop to this Leo New Moon than the usual Leo New Moon because Mars is conjunct that New Moon.

Mars will stay in the spotlight most all this week, as it continues conjunction with the Sun through mid week.

Leo New Moon seeks to bring us to opening our hearts to “in the moment” creative space. Leo is energetically at its best when it is unselfconscious and thus spontaneously shining expressively from the heart.

This is not the Venus part of the heart which seeks to make relationship.  The Solar (Sun is the ruler of Leo) heartspace is about pure self expression.  Of course Leo does want to influence people, but relationship is not its priority.

At its worst Leo looks in the proverbial mirror to admire itself, and then its pure expression is tainted by being self conscious.  At its very worst its’ gaze at its’ reflection creates narcissism.

Leo is like a very young child who spontaneously expresses itself, wants to have fun, and gazes over its shoulder to see if people are looking and admiring her.

So with Mars in Leo conjunct the New Moon in Leo, a healthy response is to be open hearted in expression, having fun, and being naturally creative by being spontaneously “in the moment”.  Creative endeavors and projects get the green light after this.

The Mars part of this formation brings more force to the expression, more self assertion and being true to self.

The Mars conjunct Leo New Moon can also bring more conflict, more harshness, and more forceful egocentricity.

On the world stage big egos will strut and challenge other big egos to a duel, which in the modern world can bring dangerous conflicts or wars.

In past writing I have shown all the Mars aspects coming with this Eclipse Season, especially around August 21, at the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo.

The natal Mars of Trump, Netanyahu, and Israel will be in extremely close conjunction with that Eclipse.  

For the USA, Saturn changing directions will be in very close aspect to the USA natal Mars in Gemini, which is quite close to Trump’s Sun in Gemini.  This will be around the time of the Total Solar Eclipse.

And North Korea and Syria’s natal charts have very close conjunctions to this Eclipse also.

For the next couple of months there is a strong possibility of major conflict breaking out in our world, a conflict that could have a domino effect on many countries.

This is not for sure, but bears close attention.  And after this Leo New Moon on the 23rd, we will be able to see what potential outbreaks become more likely.

Issues could fizzle, it is true, but also there is strong possibility something will be ignited, much stronger than usual.

Many of my readers have known for awhile of this time.  We will be challenged, so we can upgrade our consciousness and talents.  Then we will be ready to make our contribution to our human family, as it faces its great challenges.

The “old gods” from an old paradigm are flexing their muscles and digging in, so they and their paradigm can continue.  They use fear, shame, and guilt to keep us stuck in the old world.  They will try to trigger our rage and hatred toward others in order to keep them in power.

The new gods and goddesses, so to speak, bring love and truth with them, motivating us to more pure self expression and more clarity of purpose for our new age.

They show us that all and everyone is connected in unity, diversity within unity for the Age of Aquarius.

We will need to keep our energy portals, our chakras, open to the new energies, new consciousness, to more love and light.

It will be part of our personal challenge to combine our love with our own power. We must get over the fear of our own power, as love without personal power and truth is weak and diffuse.

This is not power over anyone, but instead personal empowerment that has the force and passion to stand strong and vital and to meet the challenges thrown our way.

I know many of you have been recently undecided and unclear about making decisions and choosing direction for your life.

We have apparently been waiting for the outbreak and awakening to happen, that which changes all our lives.

This is either that time now, or it is the trigger to open the passageways for that which is close to becoming reality soon.

Or maybe this time we come close to outbreak, then back off and diffuse the energies of combat for now.

No matter what happens, we are in this Eclipse Season at a major turning point in our collective human lives and evolution.

Concentrate at this Leo New Moon on opening your heart and solar plexus, expressing your authentic self, and empowering yourself.

The day before this New Moon, the day of this New Moon, and the day after, with the Moon dark; you have much power to visualize, to create, to make strong intention and prayer.

Late Wednesday the 26th of July, Mars is conjunct the Sun in Leo.  This gives your self expression, self honoring, and empowerment a jolt of energy and vitality. Do not be afraid of your power or ego.

You have grown enough to be able to integrate it with all that you are. If you are committed to your higher soul self as your guide and leader, then your ego will serve it not dominate it.

On Monday July 24 Venus will oppose Saturn.  That means we are ready to set strong boundaries in our relationships, and ready to end relationships or its dysfunctional relationship patterns. We are also ready to make relationship commitments, if that is appropriate at this time.

On July 25 Mercury (mind and communication) leaves creative Leo, and enters analytical Virgo. On August 12, while still in Virgo, Mercury goes Retrograde.

It will be Retrograde when the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo forms. It goes back direct on September 5, while still in Eclipse Season.

So get your motor running this weekend at the Leo New Moon, then get moving forward this week.

Please take a look at new video I made about the coming eclipses:

Leo

Gettin’ Ready and Astrology Forecast July 16-22.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 15, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

On Sunday July 16 we enter- for a week- the 4th quarter and last quarter of the lunar cycle. This lunar cycle began at the New Moon in Cancer on June 23.  And it ends next Sunday July 23 at the Leo New Moon.

This passing lunar cycle has been a time of finding nurturance, support, feelings of home, family, and inner wholeness.

At the Leo New Moon on the 23rd of July, there will be a shift.  That Leo New Moon brings in the first winds of Eclipse Season, and will shift our energies into more fiery creative self expression, more action, more hope, and greater motivation to “succeed”.

Yet the 4th quarter time this week, which precedes that Leo New Moon, , the first of two Leo New Moons in a row, will be more energized and active than most 4th quarter time periods.

That is because this 4th quarter begins with the Moon in active willful Aries; then continues with the often chaotic Mars square Uranus this Monday the 17th; Sun squaring Uranus on the 20th while Mars goes into Leo; and the Sun moving into Leo a couple days before the New Moon in Leo.

4th quarter lunar cycles are a time of “coming down”, finishing up, gathering, cleaning up, and getting ready for the new beginnings of a New Moon.

And of course that theme continues for this 4th quarter lunar cycle, but there will also be more energy for that “finishing up” purpose this week.

And of course since this is a getting ready for Eclipse Season, there also should be more stirring up, and the beginnings of seeing what Eclipse Season might be like for each of us.

I know some people get scared about these Eclipse Seasons, but having consciously experienced many of them through the years, I can assure you that usually they are not as bad as many fear.

Yes for sure most of us will be taken out of our usual balance, will be shifting in consciousness and energetically, will release and let go some things, and will be more ready for handling change.

But most will not lose their jobs, relationships, or homes during an Eclipse Season. And they will not be destroyed and die.  And the world will not come to an end.

Yet for sure this Eclipse Season will at least be a turning point time in our individual lives, and of course in our global experience too.

There will likely be an experience of getting over the hump and knowing there is no path to going back to how it used to be.  Our New Chapter in life is becoming our “new normal” and we need to own that.

In our global experience, the Trump factor has been changing our world appreciably, and on the surface it looks pretty bad.  Remember in the bigger picture he is the vehicle for this transformation that our human family needs right now in order to wake up and make the needed changes.

America is in the process of  becoming an equal member of nations, which aligns with the Age of Aquarius.

I am sure most of you wish it would be happening in a way that didn’t make the country an embarrassment in the world, and didn’t put us in such a dangerous position; yet this is how it needs to be right now.

Our country and world have been coasting without awareness through a dysfunctional and toxic human condition for a long time now.  The values of this country have been eroding for many years, but so slowly that many have not been paying attention.

Now more and more people are waking up and seeing, feeling and knowing that our human family is in real trouble.   Deep transformation and healing are urgently needed.

And this Eclipse Season, whatever events it brings to us, will show us how much we need to make big important changes.

Our economy is not equitable and all too often the greedy are the ones most rewarded in this system. Bernie Sanders represented a waking up of the people in the USA to lack of balance and fairness in the economy.

Will the stock market crash happen during or not long after this coming Eclipse Season? Better chance than usual it will.

But if not now, it will happen relatively soon, before summer of 2018 in my estimation.  And Eclipse Seasons, as they represent often drastic change, give us a better chance of something like that happening.

And the Military, the other half of the Economic/Military complex that largely rules this world,  will show change this Eclipse Season, especially so as the USA Mars is triggered by transiting Saturn; Trump and Netanyahu’s Mars’ are triggered by the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo, and Israel’s Mars is also triggered by the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21.

Does this mean there is serious conflict brewing? Probably yes.  It does not, however, necessarily mean actual war will erupt soon.   But it has a greater likelihood being triggered during or soon after the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo than usual.

The Military/Economic complex that President Eisenhower warned us about is more powerful than ever, and it must be transformed somehow in order for us to evolve into what is needed for the coming Age of Aquarius.

We can only pray it happens as gracefully as possible.

Whether gracefully or not, Trump sure shows us more likelihood of its dismantling.  He is like Caligula or Nero as the Roman Empire began to dissolve.

But, nevertheless, each of us needs to put our concentration on transforming our own consciousness and life.

As you let go of the programming from society and family of your mind and heart, you transform and evolve.

As  you awaken to truth, you evolve and transform.

As you trust that you live in a meaningful and sometimes magical Universe you transform and evolve.

As you open to your authentic Self, and to living a more purposeful life, you transform and evolve.

As you realize we are all brothers and sisters of the same human family, you transform and evolve.

As you extricate yourself from believing that being rich and famous is the holy grail, you transform  and evolve.

As you let go the consciousness of superior/inferior, predator/prey and victim/perpetrator for our human condition you transform and evolve.

As you know love is the true healer, you transform and evolve.

As you know we all live in a meaningful Universe, you evolve and transform.

As you realize all is connected, all seeming opposites are meant to be joined in wholeness like the yin/yang symbol,  you transform and evolve.

As you experience that Soul is real and guides our life journey, you transform and evolve.

And now the transformation is accelerated, as during Eclipse Seasons the wheels of the Universe turn with more music, light, love, and magic than usual.

It is the blocks to that light that hold everything back and cause breakdowns and difficulties.

When we  trust and surrender, we better allow our blocks to be cleared, so that the music, light, love and magic can come pouring through.

And next Sunday the 23rd begins the Eclipse Season with the New Moon in Leo.

Talk with you then,

Leo

We will do a video in July for the important August Total Solar Eclipse and Eclipse Season.  We will have a new website up to view in July also.

In the Arms of the Universe and Astrology Forecast July 9-15

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on July 8, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this forecast/blog, we are still several hours before the Full Moon in Capricorn, which is at 12:07 AM on the 9th of July EDT. This has been a rather sobering and sometimes intense full moon experience for many.

A Capricorn Full Moon is often sobering, but there has been an added edginess to this one, and that is because Pluto is conjunct the Moon and opposite the Sun of this Full Moon.

Pluto of course is the guardian of the underworld, and as such it holds what is lying deep inside our bodies and souls.

In a civilized world, humans have learned to bury their more basic instincts, and hide, even from themselves any emotions that can be seen as negative, like rage, jealousy, shame, envy, greed, lustful feelings, panic, or desperation.

And of course many of those more primal instincts can be very destructive to self, others, or society.

Freud gave those instincts the term “Id”, which he said could be controlled by one’s “superego”, which is our moral compass or conscience.

Pluto, guardian of the underworld, guards our more primal “Id” instincts, and our repressed memories from earlier wounds and traumas.

So when Pluto is around by transit, it can bring up that which we have held down deep inside of us.

If someone says something that pushes our buttons, our usually controlled emotions or instincts may erupt.

Perhaps we will express in passive-agressive ways, or through sarcasm, but often anger/rage, in whatever form, is the result of Pluto triggering our suppressed or repressed instincts or emotions.

Whenever I see Pluto being activated in a chart or activating a chart I know there may be something normally held back, or made secret, that will be expressed.  When I see a combination of Mars and Pluto together, I know something explosive is likely to be expressed.

And I usually watch Mars, Pluto, or Pluto/Mars combinations when looking at a nation’s chart or the leader of a nation’s chart.

In August, at the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo, Trump’s Mars will be in conjunction with that Eclipse.  The eclipse is at 28+ degrees of Leo, and Trump’s Mars is at 26+ degrees of Leo, a relatively close conjunction.

Bibi Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, also has his Mars at 26+ degrees of Leo, so he and Trump will always have their Mars triggered at the same time, and this eclipse is one of those times.

To add to this series of connections, Israel from its natal chart of May 14, 1948 has its Mars at 28+ degrees of Leo, exactly conjunct the Total Solar Eclipse. And the USA Mars will be in almost exact alignment with Saturn that day.

And another strange connection between Trump and Netanyahu, especially so at the Solar Eclipse this August, is that both were born on days of eclipses:  Netanyahu at a Solar Eclipse in Libra, and Trump at a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius.  Trust me, it is rather rare for someone to be born on the day of an eclipse of any kind.

So we can expect some kind of important turning point to occur for both Israel and the USA near the date of the Solar Eclipse in August.   And whatever it is, it will have to do with something militaristic.

Now that could also mean military is calmed down or held back, but more likely it is activated then in some important way.

And these turning point events do not have to be right on the Eclipse, but within a month or so either way.

Let’s look at this coming week:  This week we begin to come down from the Capricorn Full Moon by Tuesday or Wednesday.  After that, until the next New Moon, in Leo on July 23, we contract, ease up, and gather and center ourselves.

That New Moon in Leo on the 23rd will bring in the first breezes or perhaps winds of Eclipse Season.

Please remember;  all that will happen is necessary to the transformation into an Age of Aquarius.

Our human family, even the most stubborn of us, need to know the old ways must be released forever if we are to survive and evolve.

Dog eat dog, every man for himself, take all you can get, win at all costs belief systems need to be buried.

Believing we live in a meaningless, disconnected Universe that only offers random events, and “scientific” proofs needs to be released.

Believing some are superior and  others inferior in value in our human family has seen its time pass.

Using and abusing the Earth for what we can get from her, and without care for her is killing life on this planet.

Continuing to make our material needs more important than our souls kills our connections to one another, to God/Goddess, to the Universe, and to Nature.

We are on the threshold of an Age of Aquarius, and we are so much closer than it seems on the surface.

So know where we are headed, and get your consciousness and actions aligned with this New Age of Aquarius.

Concentrate on Love and Truth.  Open up to the Light of new consciousness wanting to pour through our veins.  Release the blocks. Clear your chakras. Open your mind and heart, think for your self, feel your truth, make intention to express your authenticity and purpose, be awake to the signs and symbols and synchronicities.

Know all is connected and meaningful, no matter how it looks on the outside, send away your fears and do not feed your hatreds.

We are safe in the arms of the Universe, let go and feel it.

Till next week,

Leo

Spiritual Soul Journey and Astrology Forecast May 10-16.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 9, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The intensity of Spring Eclipse Season 2015 is winding down.  On Monday May 11 we move into the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Aries on April 18.

It is time to look around at your life and your inner world and to see where you are at now.

Look at your life now from a more common sense and practical viewpoint.    What is working and what is not working for you?

What still blocks your ability to move more fully forward?    What inner tapes and programmed messages hold you back?  What past traumas and hurts keep you from trusting?

You can use this last quarter Moon phase to see how your life is settling as the dust clears from the recent shifts and changes.

Next week there will be a New Moon in Taurus on Monday May 18.   And Mercury will go Retrograde that same day, and stay there until June 11.  Then after the New Moon in Gemini on June 16, and after Mercury goes back Direct on the 11th,  there will bring more active and alive energies for moving forward again.

World events, directly related to the shifts during the Eclipses this year, will then erupt again.

Three important Middle East events during the Spring Eclipse Season this year were the election of Bibi Netanyahu in Israel; the nuclear agreement between world powers and Iran; and the civil war in Yemen that brought in Iran and its foe Saudi Arabia.

The issues from these events will go to a new and more serious level later this spring and early summer.

Netanyahu has put together a small but extremely militaristic coalition government in Israel.  It is quite arguably the most conservative, anti Palestinian government put together in that country.    And its opposition to the Iran deal brings much danger for war.

The nuclear deal with Iran needs to be finalized by the end of June this year.  There is much opposition to this deal among Iran’s hardliners, American hardliners, many Sunni Arab governments and of course Israel.

And in Yemen the Iranian backed Houthis who performed a coup of the previous government are fighting against Saudi Arabia, which has invaded Yemen.

Add to this the grave problems in Syria and Iraq with ISIS and Al Queda and it is obvious that we are at a big turning point in the Middle East.

And after Mercury goes Direct and there is New Moon in Gemini, we can expect events to erupt in the Middle East and elsewhere.  Yet the time period to be especially aware of in regards to Israel and the Middle East will be late July/Early August.  

Saturn in Scorpio will be going Direct then as Jupiter in Leo makes square to it.  Israel’s Natal Mars placement in Leo will be almost exactly made conjunct by Jupiter and squared by Saturn at that time.  There will also be a Full Moon in Aquarius around the same time.

For now, however, we go through the waning 4th quarter phase of the Moon this week.   Shore up the practical foundational elements of your life in anticipation of more transformational change coming soon.  More grounded, common sense ways of being and thinking are aligned now.

This week, besides moving through the 4th quarter moon phase, we see on Monday that Mars leaves earthy body centered Taurus for thought provoking Gemini, where it will stay for until June 24.

Mars in Gemini is very active, inquisitive, and mercurial.   You will want to find more interesting pursuits, learning opportunities, and generally fast forward movement.

Mars opposes Saturn in Sagittarius mid week, so fast forward movement will be frustrated by the contraction of Saturn.

And of course we will be moving through a 4th quarter Moon phase this week and Mercury Retrograde next week, so it is a better time for planting Gemini idea seedlings than to blast fast forward with certain plans.

Whatever ideas are planted in your mind this week may need a few weeks to germinate before certain knowing of direction.

After Mercury goes back Direct on June 11 and then there is a New Moon in Gemini on June 16, it will be time to move forward with ideas and plans.

Transformational change does not happen in a straight line of goal setting directness.  It happens in a more circuitous manner, where the mystery of deep seated soul intention plays out in its own way.

Transformation is a process of letting go of that which has died in spirit and allowing for new energies and forms to manifest.

We cannot rush the process, yet we are best served if we get out of the way of the energies that want to move through us.

Those new energies bring to us what we need in our transformational journey.   Change does not always arrive in the manner or form that we intended, but the essence of what we need is always brought to us.

When intention is made to the Universe, it is best to be in true relationship with the Universe like you would with anyone or anything.

The Universe is not an extension of our relationship with mom or dad, and so our past disappointments with parents cannot rule our transformational consciousness.  And sometimes people will make demands of the Universe, telling it they deserve good things because they have been a good person or paid their dues or some such.

But transformation is not for good or bad people but for all souls.  We do not get we want because we were a good or bad girl or boy.

Transformation is more about cycles, endings and beginnings, karma, and attracting to our selves that which is based on how we are vibrating, so to speak.  Our belief systems, our attitudes, our energy, our soul’s frequency, determines the quality of our transformation.

Our best intention to make is probably one that asks to have happen what is in the best interest of all concerned.  And we very likely cannot determine what that is- but the Universe can.

You can know what is no longer aligned with your soul’s journey, and you can know what in essence you need to move into now.  But you will be frustrated if you expect a perfect anything or anyone, or if you make material concerns your highest priority.

We are all on a spiritual soul journey which requires material support, not on a material journey that requires the support of spirit.

till next week,

Leo

Letting Go of the Shore and Astrology Forecast April 12-18

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 11, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week may move slowly at first, as we move into the last quarter Moon in Capricorn Saturday April 11.

The last quarter phase of the moon is by nature a time to wind down, process, integrate and prepare for new beginnings at the New Moon.

This current last quarter phase is especially important as it finishes up the lunar cycle begun at the Spring Equinox/Solar Eclipse New Moon day of March 20.  That lunar cycle then continued into a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on April 4.

That Total Lunar Eclipse included within it Uranus and Pluto and formed a meaningful Cardinal T-square.

So now at this last quarter lunar phase, we put an end to a most powerful and transformational cycle of time.   We need time to process what has been churning in our consciousness and lives this lunar month, so we can be ready for the strong new beginnings later this week.

On Saturday April 18 at 2:57 PM EDT there will be a New Moon in Aries that will thrust us forward “ready or not”. Events will open up in our lives after this New Moon.

New Moons always signify new starts or beginnings and Aries is the perfect sign for new starts, as it is the sign that initiates springtime here in the Northern Hemisphere.

Aries thrusts forward as buds bursting through branches. It is like a baby taking its first steps, like a pioneer exploring new territory, or like an athlete or warrior fighting to survive.

So after a most important early spring, when issues in our consciousnesses and lives have been stirred and awakened, when we have been made more aware of what needs to be released and what needs to change; we are ready to get moving forward with our lives in new ways.

So use the early part of this coming week to work through issues, or to tie up loose ends, to complete, to resolve, to fix or to let go of what needs to be released.

Anything you are still holding onto- even just a little- is a sign you have not fully embraced the change.

This week Thursday April 16 Pluto changes directions from Direct to Retrograde.   That means the energy of Pluto will permeate our energy fields and consciousness.   Pluto, God of the Underworld governs the part of the transformational cycle that intensely brings issues up to the forefront of our consciousness.  It then helps us to release the old fecal matter of our attitudes and beliefs, and then also helps us to be ready for a new birth- from the ashes of the old.

As Pluto changes directions this week, you are more able to confront what needs to be confronted and to finally let go of what needs to be let go of.

For those of you who are clinging to that last bit of something, afraid to let it totally go for whatever reason, you will have help to fully release.

And as you do let go, you will open up the space for something or someone new to arrive.  Yes you may be holding on because you are OK with “the devil you know” more than unknown new territory.

But it is time now for our whole human family to leave the old polluted ponds of our consciousness and lives and to enter new but unknown waters.

In the greater world we are about to experience world conflicts larger than we have experienced in at least decades.   After the New Moon in Aries, we will be more ripe for world events that will be a direct result of what happened earlier this spring during the eclipses and Uranus/Pluto.

The Middle East will be an important catalyst for these conflicts. It is not mere coincidence that during this Spring Eclipse Season Bibi Netanyahu of Israel was re-elected;  there is a new formation for a resolution on Iran’s nuclear program; and a civil war erupted in Yemen, one that also includes the military and political agenda of several other nations.

There is an old world wide paradigm that needs to be let go of, one that encourages separation and disconnection, meaninglessness, and a dog eat dog fight for who wins at others’ expense.

This old paradigm has created weapons of mass destruction, an unfair economic system that encourages greed and despair, relationships based on lack of trust, and lives that often feel empty and alone.

We all too often look for who is better than whom, which then translates into my family or country or religion is better or worse than yours.   And of course faulty egos are built on the judgments of someone being worse or better than someone else.

These programmed judgments keep us beholden to old Gods and testaments that keep us stuck in a world that has in essence already died.

The New Gods of an Age of Aquarius show us equality, liberation, Diversity within Unity, and connections to our authentic individuality and a worldwide web of unity.  Love and Truth are re-membered as our true Universal Mother and Father.

Now as we approach this Aries New Moon we can truly be ready to move forward into new horizons of our life journeys on the way to the Age of Aquarius.  

As you are letting go of old baggage, you will become lighter and more free, more connected to your true soul self and the Universe.

And this New Moon in Aries, as it follows a most important Spring Eclipse Season and the last exact Uranus square Pluto aspect, turns on the ignition and starts driving the vehicles for real change, not just change in our imaginations or minds.

Use Pluto and the last quarter lunar cycle to release your fingernails that are still clinging onto the dock at the shore of your life.  Trust the waters of the Universe and your own innate wisdom to bring you to the right places and people at the right time.  Let go.

This week is a turning point in leaving behind the Groundhog Day repeating patterns and obsessive thoughts of your life.

The Aries New Moon this week shows us the true end of winter in our minds and souls.   We can leave the depression and gloom and open our hearts to the flowers of spring and the winds of change that will set us free.

See you next week,

Leo

So Shall it Be and Astrology Forecast March 22-28

We have passed through the first part of Spring Eclipse Season 2015, as an important portal into the new world has been opening.

But I know for many of us it felt more like the old world was alive and well,  with fear and nasty behavior stronger than ever.

Five different people this past week asked me something similar.  The words may not have been exactly the same, but in essence they questioned the same thing.  They did not understand how people could be so mean or selfish or cold or rude, etc.

There was a lot of negative energy released this past week with the aspects of Uranus/Pluto and the Solar Eclipse.

In Israel the worst case scenario played out: Bibi Netanyahu’s Likud party was the winner of the vote, and almost for sure he will maintain his position as leader of Israel.  And as the election was still playing out on Election Day, he complained out loud about the droves of Arabs going to the polls.  And he stated that with his win the two state solution with the Palestinians was dead.

That in effect would mean that the peace process would end, and that the apartheid style of domination of Palestinians would get even worse.

Yes he took those statements back after he won, but of course he had to in order to try to retain support from America and the International community.

But these events in Israel promise much more conflict, turmoil and war in the Middle East, not a very graceful entry into the Age of Aquarius.

And if the nuclear talks with Iran do not bring some kind of framework resolution over the next 10 days or so, we can expect tremendous chaos before long in the Middle East.

This past week also brought two devastating attacks by ISIS, one killing almost 20 tourists in Tunisia and another one killing over a hundred people in Yemen.

And in Frankfurt Germany this past week there were protests that turned into huge riots over banks and the economy.

And now we are in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the aforementioned Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces.   And true to Pisces there is an emotional outpouring and more chaotic feelings that are not easy to find a center within.

We are being taken out of our usual default positions inside ourselves and in our lives, so that we may be more able to let in the changes.  With Pisces there is a need to surrender control and trust the process of the Universe.

Yes some ugly energies have been released this past week, but we as individual humans can choose trust and love, or fear and anger.

What has been released is part of the process to get us where we need to go. If on a personal level in your own life this past week you experienced or expressed “negative” emotions, do your best not to judge or jump to conclusions too fast.

The “demons”, so to speak, were waiting at the entry of the opening portal.  They have been released into our collective consciousness.

Now it is time to “regroup” and reintegrate, to come back to our inner core and center.  There are more challenging winds of change ahead, and it is imperative we each keep a spiritual perspective and be true to our best human values.

I have been letting people know for a long time now that the Middle East would likely implode as part of the journey to an Age of Aquarius.  It is the part of the Earth that birthed many of our original civilizations and organized religions, and as such would show us what has gone wrong and what needs to be changed.

Planetarily speaking, we move now toward the second eclipse this Spring Eclipse Season 2015:  A Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra.   This Eclipse will have Uranus and Pluto in its signature, as Uranus will be conjunct the Sun in Aries and opposite the Moon in Libra; and Pluto in Capricorn will be square the Sun and Moon.  This will happen on April 4.

Since Uranus and Pluto will still be close be being exactly square (since they were exact on March 16), it will be another powerful Eclipse event.  We will discuss that more at our next Perspectives column next week.

And keep in mind that after the last of two eclipses this spring, we will continue to have more changes and dramatic events.

Whatever swirls through our lives during this portal opening now, which continues through the Lunar Eclipse on April 4, will tend to activate events at and after the New Moon in Aries on April 18.

In your personal life and soul journey, there may be more emotional and spiritual processing to go through over the next couple of weeks.  More “negativity” may be released as the positive light rays of this opening portal meet the energies that block out this light.  As those blocks are cracked open, they are more able to be released.

So do not hold onto the fear or anger or jealousy, etc.. Do not stop to judge your self for feeling or expressing them. Instead release them, and release those people or situations or attitudes or beliefs or stuck old patterns that have held them for you.

As you release, you open your vessel to the light frequencies, and in the process bring back trust and hope and more love and wisdom.

You do not deserve to stay stuck or in pain or trapped in your mind or life.  There is nothing you have done that cannot be atoned for, cannot be healed, cannot be resolved sufficiently.  Beating yourself up tells the Universe you are not ready for moving on from the past.

You will be given the opportunity during this Pisces Eclipse Lunar Cycle, which lasts until April 18, to face your old ghosts and demons and release them as part of your transformational process.

Are there people in your life or thoughts in your head that mirror back to you the old negative self image you keep holding onto.  Let it go now so you can be ready to move forward after the Aries New Moon on April 18.

And in our greater world, much will similarly swirl around during this portal opening.  The old fear based ways will continue to rear their ugly heads as they did at the Israeli elections this past week.

The global economy, governmental and military/police controls are in the process of huge transformation.  Those old ways hold up the old world and its corruption, its needs to perpetuate patterns of domination and control and unhealthy self interest.  It needs to be changed and the coming events will ultimately help in that process.

So many of you have moved far away from being pulled into the games that perpetuate that old world.  You no longer can be motivated by the fear it uses to run the old world.  You do not need to play its games, the games that lack heart and soul and trust in nature and the Universe and the human spirit.

But perhaps there are still parts of you that are still influenced and fear the hand of an old judgemental God who will smite you or send you to hell.

If so, now you will have opportunity to release these fears and symbolically send them out to a black hole in the Universe.   Take the next step and tell the Universe you are ready to trust like a child again. You can send that message by releasing that which keeps you chained to your fears, your victimization, and your resentments.

All happens for a reason, even your worst and most horrific events from your past are stepping stones to your self actualization, to your purpose for being here.

See it that way and then so shall it be.

Till next week,

Saturn/Pluto and War, and Astrology Forecast for August 8-14.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on August 7, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we have been talking about for several months now, the Summer of 2010 is a real life changing season.  Of course we still have a few weeks more of the Cardinal T-Square, which will be highlighted by Jupiter in Aries opposing Saturn on August 16 and Saturn in Libra squaring Pluto in Capricorn on August 21. 

These aspects will bring climax and culmination to the many profoundly important astrological events of the summer of 2010.  These events are initiating us through the portal- into a huge and life altering new chapter of our lives.  

On a personal level, many people have been taken off balance, out of their “normal” way of being, and pushed forward in their lives.   They have been brought to turning points, some to crossroads decisions or events.  The old plateau we rested upon has lost its comfort and we are being brought into new challenges and/or opportunities.

This is happening because we are about to move much faster forward into a collective new chapter of the human condition, on the way through the transition between ages. 

Our personal lives, beliefs, and consciousness need to be transformed so we will be more aligned with this new chapter, new phase of our lives on Earth.  This summer has initiated us, has shown us we need to shift on all levels of our lives and consciousness. We are being transported from lives of separation and fear, programmed by the old world- to lives devoted to love and truth, diversity in Oneness.

The largest world events have not happened yet.   But they are close now.  They will take us out of our old ways of being.  The changes of the ’60’s and ’70s were nothing in comparison to what is coming our way soon.  

Most world events that are connected to these summer astrological events have not happened yet.  They will happen over the next couple of months as the energies are released from the aspects.

Some of the events that have happened already have been calamities concerning nature.    There was the horrible gulf oil spill that spouted so much of the summer and caused so much devastation and took our balance of nature so out of balance.   It is being reported by the Powers that Be that all is fine now, not much damage was done.

If you believe that, you must also believe there is no climate change or global warming.      Both opinions ignore that truth that would force us all to change our ways and to find alternative energy sources and to heal and clean up our Earth and its environment.

Another world event that is part of natural disaster is the flooding in Pakistan that has affected millions of lives and homes there.   And of course the fires near Moscow that have caused such smoke and limited visibility.   And it has also been a very hot summer for much of the United States.   Worldwide, the last decade has seen the highest average temperatures ever recorded.

The oil spill was the only huge man-made disaster that has erupted in our world so far this summer.    But to truly understand the power of the eclipses, the Grand Cross and the cardinal T-Square, it is important to pay attention to the themes that have been simmering in our world this summer.

The economy is showing us no real signs it coming into recovery from the great recession.  Many had expected the economy to show obvious signs of recovery this summer.   Aside from the out-of-touch stock market, and corporate profits, there has been little evidence that real humans are feeling the recovery. Jobs are as scarce as ever, people are not spending money, state and local governments are in trouble, are lessening public services and laying off government workers.   The housing market is not showing any real signs of improvement either.

And so the signs during the Summer of 2010 have been that the economy is going down further, and soon even the stock market will be falling in a big way. Be prepared late summer and autumn for a slide downward for the old economy.  New economic ways, ways that will be more equitable, are coming our way before too long.

The other themes simmering this summer have been around military and war.   It is getting very serious between North Korea and South Korea.  Noth Korea has been accused of shooting a torpedo at a South Korean submarine this year.  North Korea denies it and has threatened military retaliation.  This is a most dangerous situation.

And even more threatening to world stability is what is going on surrounding Israel.   Late spring, just before the eclipses, a flotilla of ships bringing aid to the people of Gaza,  whose lives were devastated during the Israeli bombardment recently, was stopped by the Israeli military.  The Israeli’s invaded one of the ships in international waters and killed 8 people, most from Turkey.   This caused a huge upheaval and more ships will be on their way to break up the Israeli blockade of Gaza this autumn.

And more recently there was a blowup in southern Lebanon between the Lebanese and Israeli’s.  Four people were killed.  And all this trouble is related to Iran, a country that Israel, the USA, and many western nations want to de-fang and take away their nuclear potential.    This summer the United Nations put sanctions on Iran to try to get them to drop their nuclear program, which many believe leads to a nuclear bomb.  The USA and Europe susequently put unilateral sanctions on Iran.  Of couse most of these western nations, the USA, and Israel all possess many nuclear weapons already.

We are on the verge of a war breaking out soon in the world, to be started in the Middle East.

The first flare-up could happen as soon as late in August.  On August 21 Saturn squares Pluto, a day after Mercury goes retrograde at the degree (19 degrees Virgo) where the Sun was when the 9-11 tragedy happened.     Saturn and Pluto will making aspect to the USA and Israel natal Venus in Cancer at 3+ degrees for USA and 4+ degrees for Israel.   President Obama has his natal Venus at almost 2 degrees of Cancer and Bibi Netanyahu, leader of Israel has his Uranus at 4+ degrees of Cancer.   Other aspects August 20-22 touch off the charts of Israel, USA, Netanyahu and Obama.   

There might be a huge event that happens then, but for sure there will at least be big signs then about what is coming before the autumn has ended this year- for Israel and the USA. An attack on Iran is one of the strongest possibilities.

Keep in mind that Saturn/Pluto aspects have in the past brought destructive events that have cleared the way for new chapters in the human condition.    Saturn/Pluto made hard aspect to one another in 1914, just before World War I; they made hard aspect in 1939, just before World War II; and made hard aspect one month before 9-11.

I anticipate that these coming wars will be the last before we collectively decide to eliminate weapons of mass destruction for everyone on Earth.  War will not be a common occurence in the Aquarian Age.  We are transforming our world and creating a New World and Age.  We do have much cleaning out of old, dysfunctional, separating ways first .  

While we are releasing these old ways, we are building new ways of being with our selves, each other and the Universe.  The world of separation is dying a sometimes horrible death.  The world of Oneness and Unity is getting stronger every day for so many individuals all over the world.  The recent Conscious Convergence was to bring our human family stronger into Unity, knowing we are all one family.   This attitude of oneness is happening as the old world is being destroyed.

It is most important now to concentrate on love and truth, and to bring them to your every day life.   

We are the ones we have been waiting for; we are the change we want in the world.

Astrology Forecast for August 8-14

We are in a dark of the Moon now until after the New Moon in Leo this Monday August 9 at 11:08 PM EDT. It is best at this time, through the New Moon, to meditate and reflect.   It is also a good time to make intention, to make prayer.  After the crescent Moon appears on the evening of Tuesday August 10, it is a good time to get moving forward in your life, especially in your creative life. Open your heart now and express your authenticity.    Look at life more through your heart than your head now. Be careful, however, of your own or other people’s egos.    

This new lunar phase, begun at this New Moon, is the first since the eclipses.  It is time to move forward and let the chips fall where they may now.   Some events that were “tied up” duing the eclipses and crosses will be ready to open up now.  The Moon will be in Virgo mid week, a good time to get things in order and work hard.  Late week the Moon will be in Libra, a good time to begin to get more relationship oriented.

See you next week.
