Rising Up and Astrology Forecast January 29- February

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

But hatred and bigotry are never OK no matter what.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

We are ready for the challenge.

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo

Here We Go and Astrology Forecast January.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 21, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The early part of this week is mostly about processing what has been happening in our personal lives and in the greater world.   Mercury is now firmly direct and back to its normal speed; and the Moon is in its 4th and last quarter phase of its cycle.

Where are we?  What has been happening to us and our world? The early part of this week will allow us to reflect on all this.

In the greater world we can now stop and feel the reality of a Trump administration and what it means for our world and lives.  The Women’s March right after Trump’s inaugration tells us more about the new reality we are all in now.

We had been experiencing a relatively graceful time period for the last 8 years, during President Obama’s presidential years.

There were many changes, like more recognition and honoring of the LGBT community; a big improvement economically from the housing and employment crashes right before he was elected;  the nuclear deal with Iran; and Obamacare.

There was also great turmoil in the rise of Islamic State; the Arab Spring; Occupy Wall Street; Ferguson Missouri and other examples of police abuse of African Americans; the rise of Russia again; continued economic disparity between rich and all others; terror attacks in America and western civilization, etc.

But most of the time there was little drama or anger or judgmentalness from the top of the Obama Administration.

Some would say there was not enough action taken on important matters like Syria, but nevertheless there was a sense that things would not fall apart and that the “system” would stay intact and functioning.

But now it is time for bigger transformational change, for greater conflict, for a sense that the old world is truly falling apart and a new alternative world being built.

You can see this ripeness for great transformational change by looking more deeply at the Trump administration.

On the one hand he has chosen those who are quite obviously guardians of the Old World like military generals, billionaires, oil barons,  ex Goldman-Sachs executives, etc.

On the other hand he does not fit the mold of traditional USA presidents at all; he shows obvious signs of impulsiveness which could cause events that really shake up our world;  he does not comply with traditional rituals and courtesies that have kept the Old World with structure; he is committed to doing business HIS WAY to a fault; he makes relationship with those who have traditionally been considered enemies; he is looking to tear down programs like Obamacare and the Iran deal; and he is planning on moving the USA Israel center to Jerusalem which would cause great turmoil and conflict in the Middle East.

So you can see some of what is coming: a desire to keep the Old World stronger than ever before- while tearing it down at the same time.

His Gemini twin nature is quite capable of moving in these opposite directions at the same time, in a perverse way aligned with the transformational movement of the Universe.

And “we the people” of this land and western civilization in general are facing a huge transformational change in our world and in our personal lives in the years ahead of us.

We are letting go of that which represents our personal “Old World” while letting in the light of our personal “New World”.

Relationships, homes, careers, and especially belief sytems that are connected to the old world paradigm will be released.

The Universe and our deeper Souls will be unfolding to us our new lives, our new beliefs and atttitudes aligned with the New World we have entered.

And of course in the bigger picture we are being transformed to align with the Age of Aquarius and its paradigm for our evolution.

This New Chapter of our lives, lasting the next few years, will not be as graceful as the last 8 years have been.

The Election between Trump and Clinton showed us the immense split in our country. It showed nastiness and character assassination; narcissism that precludes the ability to empathize with others and other ways of being; and a fight or competition that is ruthless and without true consideration for the welfare of the community.

We are at the same time being awakened to beliefs and attitudes that will help each of us to evolve into a Truth and Love, Diversity within Unity world, where win/win is the result intended in all conflicts and competitions.

The self actualization into our authentic selves will be combined with our intentions to be in meaningful relationship with others; and to contribute to our human community while healing our Earth and making greater connection to the Universe.

These are powerful times now, and we must be ready.

This week we concentrate on reflecting and processing until Friday January 27 at 7:07 PM EST.

That is the time of the New Moon in Aquarius, which also is the time of the beginning of the Chinese New Year of the Rooster.

Early on the next day the 28th, action oriented Mars moves out of go-with-the-flow Pisces and enters forceful and active Aries.

So late this week we get the “go sign” and start the New Era.  That New Moon in Aquarius will also begin the Eclipse Season, one that will show us a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on February 10; then a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

So the go sign is strong and changes will happen fast especially in the world at large.   President Trump will be making decisions that try to undo some of the accomplishments of the last 8 years and before.

People will begin to forcefully oppose these decisions and movements at the same time.

Transformational Change is breaking open.

On a personal level the Aquarius New Moon on the 27th,  that opens the portals for the Eclipse Season, shows us Aquarian traits.

So we will be prompted to find and honor our distinctive and individualized self, even if we feel we are different or weird.

And at the same time we will have doors opened for finding our soul families.    Birds of a Feather want to flock together now.

Finding your individual truth will help you to find your soul groups.

If you continue to be what others expect or want from you, or what you think you should be; then you will not know where you truly belong. But now you have the opportunity to begin to change that old way.

So get ready to begin the New Chapter adventure.  It is Time.

Till next week,

Leo

Clearing the Way and Astrology Forecast February 28-March 5

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 27, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This is the last full week before the first of two strong eclipses in March.

That will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on March 8.  The waters of soul will be triggered to the max at this eclipse, and many are already feeling the deep emotions associated with it already.

The spilling out of feelings and emotions may be quite powerful for some of you.  On a deeper level this is about releasing the past and for some the “ghosts” and “demons” from their past.

There is such a new world that has been opening for all of us collectively and for each of us individually.  We cannot truly embrace this new phase of life if we are holding on too tightly to personal baggage from the past.

And some of that baggage is tied into personal traumas or emotional wounds that are may not be easy to access, let alone release.

Some of us are in need of some deep soul work so our traumas will not be triggered in such a debilitating manner.

As we enter new relationships, old wounds and traumas may limit our ability to trust and be vulnerable.

As we enter new jobs or careers our past hurts can have us feeling a lack of true confidence that we will do a good job or be truly appreciated by others.

Our moving to a new home or community can bring back traumas from our childhood that have us feeling we will not fit in or be accepted for who we are.

And make no mistake about it, this is huge portal that is opening now, a new portal filled with new experiences, new energies, more magic, a new paradigm for living, etc.

And this portal brings us a big step forward toward the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius, which by my calculation will be sometime in the early ’20s.

Look at the state of the American world now, as can be seen in the political fighting between presidential candidates.  If you watched the Republican debate last week, you know how ugly and childish it was.

On the surface it makes one doubt we are entering any better world.

But on looking beneath the surface you can see that the old status quo is breaking down, and that is a prerequisite for a new paradigm and age to be built.

The old two party system is corrupt, run by billionaires and mega-corporations and other special interests. We the people have lost our voice.

Yet now with a few of the new candidates, people are coming out in droves because they see the opportunity for “we the people” to take back our power.

Perhaps people are not seeing clearly the character of the candidates who give them hope, but nevertheless people are awakening and it will not be easy to put that genie back in bottle again, so to speak.

Be prepared as other huge events will come our way soon, events that may be quite ugly on the surface, but will help break down the stuck structures and habits from the old world.

And in your personal life it is the same way.  Sometimes we can stay in old ways, and even want to stay in stable situations that have lost their spirit and soul.  It gets so “comfortable” we do not want to disrupt our lives.

But on a deeper level our spirits and souls are dying and require change and transformation.  We would not leave familiar habits without “kicking and screaming” to stay put.

But the waves from this portal will shake us up out of complacency.  March will bring emotional shakeups and force the need for deeper processing. April will bring more action, more manifestation, more motivation to move forward in your life.

This week, on Tuesday we enter the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began on February 8 at the New Moon in Aquarius.   

This last quarter brings us to greater completion, resolution and closure of some issues. There will be some cleaning up to do, some sweeping away of the past, getting prepared for new beginnings at the New Moon Solar Eclipse on March 8.

In the middle of this week, there may be some relationship challenges to deal with as Venus makes aspect to the Uranus/Jupiter quincunx aspect now in the sky and exact on March 6,  my birthday.

Uranus is in Aries and Jupiter in Virgo, so there is a mismatch (quincunx) between those two energies.  Uranus seeks to awaken, make breakthroughs and generally to motivate us to move forward with our lives.

Jupiter in Virgo seeks to help us to put our affairs in order, to clean up and perfect.

And Venus is caught in the middle of all this, which means our relationships may be challenged by our desires for change and liberation as well as needs to make perfect and create order.

And all the while this week, the oceanic waves of change pushing at the Eclipse Portal will get stronger and stronger.

If you look out onto the global scene, you will see more chaos but also attempts at order in Syria, Libya, and Iraq. You will see more portents of greater troubles in Israel/Palestine; more irrationality with North Korea, more signs of economic dangers, and more fear from Republican leaders that they are losing control or their party with the winning by Donald Trump.

Waves of change are ready to pour through the Eclipse Portal, shaking up our world at its foundation.

Keep your self centered with a perspective of the bigger picture:   The Age of Aquarius needs the breakdown of old structures of our dysfunctional and toxic world in order to download new energies and light aligned with this New World.

Till next week at the Solar Eclipse,

Leo

Eclipse Winds are Blowing In and Astrology Forecast February 14-20

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 13, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

We can now begin to see and feel some of the issues that will blossom into fullness during the Eclipse Season this March 2016.

Actually Eclipse Season began at the New Moon in Aquarius on February 8,  and the winds will get stronger before the storm hits in March.

The first actual Eclipse will be on March 8,   a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces that will form a powerful T-Square with Jupiter in Virgo and Saturn in Sagittarius.  The second Eclipse will be on March 23, just a few days after the Spring Equinox.  

It will be a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra.

For the rest of this month we will be able to see and feel issues in both our personal lives and global lives that will erupt in March and April.

When the Sun goes into Pisces this Thursday/Friday the 18th/19th, the winds of Eclipse Season will get stronger.

It already feels like it will be an important and powerful Eclipse Season, as many people are already getting taken off balance and some are also experiencing more messages from spirit than usual.

The veils are thinner between worlds and frequencies now as we move into the deep waters of a Pisces Solar Eclipse Season.

Pisces is very soulful and often dreamy and other worldly.   It moves through mystical waters beyond and inside of the material world.

When they do not allow that process to unfold naturally or when the “other world” feels blocked from their experience, they may then turn to drugs, alcohol, or other “escapes”.

Deep sensitive feelings are also Piscean, and when the Solar Eclipse erupts in March, the power of feelings will be experienced, feelings that may feel almost overwhelming at times.

As we move into the time of Sun in Pisces this week, we are already beginning to feel deeper feelings, and have more soulful experiences.

Pisces also seduces us into knowing again our “ghosts” of the past.   We may dream or day-dream past situations that are long gone.  We may grieve that past, as we may let go of the old times in our consciousness.

The “ghosts” may come in the form of regrets or nostalgia or just plain sadness of times gone by.

All these experiences are getting us ready for another round of big new beginnings that help us go further forward into this New Chapter of our personal lives and our global lives.

When the New Moon in Aries bursts forth on April 7, with its close conjunction to breakthough making Uranus, we will take off fast forward into this transition time between chapters of our lives.

This is a transition year politically in America too, as we let go of the Obama government and make decisions about the new leader and government.

At the same time as we elect a new president in November, we will be letting into our lives and consciousness a New Era on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

We will know then just how bad our global economy is.  We will know just how bad the Middle East has become.  We will know that the Military Industrial Complex that President Eisenhower told us would be controlling our lives has done just that.

And now it is no longer viable as a structure that runs the country and world.

So who we elect in November will be a reflection of how we decide to handle this huge transformation of restructuring our country and world.

If we elect someone like Trump, we will be saying we are scared to death of losing our old world and want someone who promises “to make America great again”.

If we elect someone else like Sanders we will be saying we want to totally transform our world into something totally new.

Other candidates would be somewhere in between those two positions.

But make no mistake, we are in transition to a new world.

And the Eclipse Season will get us more ready for whatever this new world will be like.

In your personal life, nothing will be more important than finding your truth, your authenticity, as well as your true connections to self, others and the Universe.

Relationships that have become codependent, dysfunctional, or toxic will either need to be transformed or abandoned.   Jobs and careers that are not satisfying and do not reflect who you are will not work for long, or if they do you will be miserable.

So it will be important now, especially with the Pisces influence, to go deeply into your belief systems, your unconscious patterns and behavior, so you can make substantive changes in your life.

All patterns and energies and peoples in our lives have come to us because in large part because of how we are in consciousness, which of course includes our beliefs, our attitudes, our wounds and traumas.

We will have more help from the Universe than usual during this Eclipse Season, to let go of old patterns and beliefs- and to integrate new consciousness and beliefs that are connected to who we are becoming- not anymore who we used to be.

Besides the Sun moving into Pisces this week, as we start the last month of Winter;  on Tuesday relationship heart oriented Venus moves out of steady stable Capricorn and into complicated “outside the box” eccentric Aquarius. This will continue until March 12 when it goes into Pisces.

So with Venus going out of Capricorn and into Aquarius, it may be time to concentrate on relating that is not so centered on keeping things as they are, stable and secure.

Take chances, meet new people, and for sure get your “individuality” on.  It is not aligned to be what others want you to so- BE YOURSELF. And if anyone does not approve,  don’t let it bother you so much.  Why do you need to please them anyway?

Till next week,

Leo

Streams of Change and Astrology Forecast February 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 6, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

 

In March a Major Portal will open the floodgates of accelerated transformational changes for both our global and personal lives. 

Two important Eclipses will burst forward then:  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in water sign Pisces, and a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra

Of course those waters flowing through the new Portal will seek to break down any blockages in systems, souls, and bodies; so these healing waters of revolution and evolution can live more fully in us.

So we have about a month before this transformational energy comes rushing through.

This Monday February 8 brings us an important new beginning with a New Moon in Aquarius.

In many ways sensitive people will begin to experience the Eclipse Season after this New Moon in Aquarius.

Floods of soulful energies will pour through our world beginning at the Solar Eclipse in water sign Pisces.  

Water Bearer Aquarius, an air sign, carries streams of change that will open into an ocean of change at the Solar Eclipse in Pisces. Neptune is the “ruler” of Pisces and of course Neptune is the God of the Oceans.

The New Moon this week in Aquarius is at 9:39 AM EST.  It brings the beginning waves of the Eclipse Season.

So an important lunar cycle begins at the New Moon in Aquarius this week.  It carries the energies and issues that will burst forth in March, dramatically changing our lives both personally and globally.

Then April will continue the onslaught of transformational energies, as the Uranus/Pluto square (still in effect), will be triggered as Mars changes directions and Mercury goes Retrograde again.

So at this New Moon in Aquarius, allow the new energies to seep in slowly before their Grand opening in March and April.

This New Moon in Aquarius gets us more attuned with our need to be very distinct individualized persons, being authentic and not molding ourselves according to societal or family dictates.

At the same time as we get in touch with that which makes us unique and different,  aligned with the sign Aquarius we ironically seek socially conscious groups that we can somehow fit into.

Often I write about Diversity within Unity being the callling card of the Age of Aquarius.

Aquarius is about being your unique self with unique function in the community, equal in value to all others, all in unity.

This New Moon in Aquarius is a good time to really get in touch with what you believe in idealistically and politically.

The elections for President should be about who answers your calls for the type of world you believe in, not who is the lesser of evils.

If people keep voting for lesser of two evils, we will always have an “evil” world, so to speak.

This time there are candidates outside the usual boxes, as the world is moving into a New Age.  Vote your heart and conscience, not according to some political “wisdom”.

The Iowa caucus showed favorites doing well, and Ted Cruz won the Republican caucus while Sanders and Clinton were pretty much even.

Astrologically speaking, I do not see Cruz winning.   Rubio, Trump, Bush, and Sanders look the best astrologically to me.

Though my astrological formula has done well in the past, keep in mind that we all vote and nothing is written in stone.

But for Cruz or someone else who does not fit into, by formula,  what is coming into our country and world does not make sense to me.

The New Moon in Aquarius brings with it on February 8- a Chinese New Year of the Monkey.  The monkey is considered a mentally agile symbol and great gains technologically make sense as a result this, as well as new ideas and inventions this coming year.

This year already has shown us that the recent transformational energies are now taking hold and becoming more real.

Yes the Presidential campaigns are showing us how the electorate wants change away from same-old doing business as usual.

The USA has been having its very central core broken down over the last couple of years as Uranus and Pluto have been making aspect to its Sun in Cancer.

The presidential elections show how the USA no longer knows who it is as its identity has been changing.  President Barack Hussein Obama has brought a whole new kind of president, outside the usual box of white anglo saxon protestant male.

And our detente with Cuba and Iran has changed our relationship to the world.  And our not blindly following Israel’s needs has also changed our relationship to them and the Muslim world.

The Middle East is so important to the world’s transformation into a New Age.

The Middle East is where most of our major religions and civilizations were born. It is where the transition between ages is brewing, where a New World will erupt from.

Will we in the USA continue the path President Obama represents and elect someone who continues to be on that track?

Or will we elect someone who sees America as better than the rest, and hates Muslims or others who they feel threaten the American way of life.

Will we bring in a president who will represent Diversity in Unity, equality for all;  or will we need to go back two dangerous steps before we go three steps forward later?

The presidential choices are more clear now than since the ’60s and ’70s.  Each of us must now reach for our “better angels” inside us.  Revenge, fear and hatred will take us into a dark tunnel of pain.  Love combined with Truth will take us to the best places, places aligned with the best of the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Presidential Primaries and Caucuses and Astrology Forecast January 31- Feb. 6

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 29, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The skies of our minds are clearing now as Mercury is back Direct.  And by the end of this coming week, Mercury will be back to speed and opening the way to even more clarity and direcion for our lives.

And just in time for the primary Presidential election process.

As we enter February 2016, Presidential primary and caucus action begin. February 1 is the Iowa caucus and February 9 is the New Hampshire primary vote.

We are looking today at the chances of each candidate, both Republican and Democrat, to be the nominee of their party and eventual President of the United States.

I have my own formula, a formula that worked by my predicting Obama and McCain as the nominees at a time when Hilary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani were way ahead in the polls. I actually then believed at the time that my formula must be really bogus.

This formula is based on how each candidate passes these tests: 1) How their natal chart connects with the USA chart from its birth on July 4 1776. If there are many connections then that candidate resonates on some level with the intentions of the country. 2) How their natal charts match up with planetary movements during the time of the next Presidential term,early 2017- early 2021. This gives me the knowledge that whatever crises we face in the world over the next four years or so, the President will in step with. 3) How do their natal charts match up with planetary movement at the party conventions this summer and Election Day November 8.

The forthcoming predictions are based strictly on the astrological formula, not on any political analysis.

Please don’t blame the messenger of the information, haha me.

We are looking at Ted Cruz (Capricorn), Marco Rubio (Gemini), Donald Trump (Gemini), Rand Paul (Capricorn), Jeb Bush (Aquarius), Chris Christie (Virgo), John Kasich (Taurus), and Ben Carson (Virgo)for the Republicans and Hilary Clinton (Scorpio) and Bernie Sanders (Virgo) for the Democrats.

In another issue we will look at the Libertarian and Green candidates and the former mayor of NY Michael Bloomberg who may try a third party run.

The candidates who show positive connectivity to the formula are Bush, Trump, Paul, Rubio, and Kasich for the Republicans; and Clinton and Sanders for the Democrats.

When we look at those who shine within the formula, Trump, Bush, Rubio, and Sanders stand out the most.

Again I am doing my utmost best to not project my wants, media ideas, or so-called political wisdom to the situation- strictly using the formulas that worked in 2008.

BTW- I gave Obama the edge over McCain for the Presidency then, based on the formula.

Let’s look at this month ahead and then we make the final picks later in this column.

Even as I write about the “race” to become President, I have such mixed feelings about it all.   In America it is a contest and competition with billions of dollars spent in order to win.   This money could be used for so many better causes than to criticize opponents in TV ads, for instance.

There is little sense of community dialogue about what would be best for the people of the country. Instead it feels like candidates selling the public on themselves as they tear about their opponents- while spending tons of money. It is a process that rewards narcissism and wealth.

But it is what it is, and we will try to figure out who will win and have some fun with it all.

As February opens with the Iowa caucuses on the 1st, we are in the last quarter Moon phase. As such there is a feeling of coming down into reality. It is also Imbolc, a time our ancestors honored as the mid way point between Winter Solstice and Spring equinox. It was considered a time of Initiation.

Now in today’s more superficial world, it is called Groundhog Day, when that animal looks for shadows and signs of an early or late spring arriving.

It will be a big initiation into the Primary voting season and some candidates will already get a sense of hope for the spring of 2016.

One week later, on February 8 there will be a New Moon in Aquarius as the voting in New Hampshire arrives the next day.

There will be some dropouts after this vote, while others will feel much more confident of their cause.

Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, and John Kasich should be at a turning point around the New Hampshire vote, as is seen in the astrology of that time period. They will each either choose to commit more firmly to staying in, or will definitely be out.

That New Moon in Aquarius coincides with Chinese New Year, and it will be the Year of the Monkey. Some of the candidates for President of the USA fit that description well.

Aquarius is a socially and politically conscious sign. It also uses its head more than its heart, often priding itself on the ability to be detached in thinking and having inventive genius.

Aquarius has a web like thinking ability similar to the internet, and Aquarians usually feel “different”-  outside normal boxes and often feel they just cannot “fit in”.

But at the same time they are always desiring to fit in with some group, getting disappointed often.

I think it was Groucho Marks who once said that any group that wanted him as a member was not a group he wanted to join.

So at this New Moon in Aquarius, on February 8 at 9:39 AM EST,  it is a good time to get with people or groups who you truly relate with, and who honor you for your unique individuality as well.

So for President it looks like this: On the Republican side, Trump seems like the best bet to win. Bush or Rubio look next best.

For the Dems, Sanders looks slightly better then Clinton.

For actual President, Trump has important planets that connect with the USA Mars (war) and its Pluto in the 2nd house (economy), so I believe that if there are urgent crises that erupt before November 8, Trump will win. And that possibility is pretty real.

And if not then I believe Sanders (or perhaps Clinton) will win.

On the Verge and Astrology Forecast February 22-28

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We approach the beginnings of a most important portal for humanity.   This portal opens March/April and will lift us up off whatever plateaus we have been resting upon.

Last year at this time we approached an Eclipse Season with another Uranus/Pluto exact square and a most powerful Cardinal Grand Cross.

We all know how much our personal lives and the world changed then, and how we were thrust into a new chapter or season of our lives, on the way to the doorway into an Age  of Aquarius.

This passing winter has brought rest for some, dark nights of the soul for others, yet it is important to know that whatever “new normal” we may be attempting to hold onto is an illusion.

The changes last year are only the beginning, and now as we come ever closer to a portal into greater transformation, we are being prepared on all levels of our being,

I do  not anticipate any Earth shattering world events to erupt this coming week, nor should you expect anything monumental to shift for your personal life this week.

Remember it is Sun in Pisces time of year, so there are more inner ghosts to face than outer actions to take or events to experience.

There is some counter to that inner work because Venus and especially Mars have just entered forceful Aries.

But it will be until very late February or more likely early March before we will feel the strength of this transformational  portal opening.

Then Jupiter, Venus and Mars will all take turns triggering the Uranus/Pluto square, in anticipation of the last exact square of those two giant forces of transformation and healing.

That last square will be on March 16, and will be closely followed by a Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces on the day of Spring Equinox 2015.

That Solar Eclipse on Spring Equinox is an important facet of the signature for the spring this year.   The portal gates will opening then, and the remainder of spring and summer 2015 will bring tornadoes of deeply sweeping energies of change.

In your personal life whatever has been left undone from the changes you experienced last year, will be furthered soon.

If you were without much change lat year you will likely be experiencing it this year, especially if you are an Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn born in the middle degrees of those signs.

Any other planets or angles of your natal chart, like the Ascendant or Midheaven, that are in the middle degrees of those signs will also we greatly affected.

And if you were born in late Pisces, Gemini, Virgo, or Sagittarius; or have planets in the late degrees of those mutable signs- you will also be greatly affected by the Solar Eclipse in Pisces.

It will be soon be time to let go of any security blankets that have been symbolically protecting us from our true soul paths in life.

It is becoming more and more important to stop faking it, to end any masquerades that hide your authentic self from view, even from your own view.

There is little time left to sit on the fence between a polluted mainstream that promises “normality” and “safety” on the one hand, and a blossoming new consciousness that is creating a new world on the other hand.

There is an old world of Monsanto and other Corporations wanting profit before all else,; corrupt world leaders who hide truths and are desperate to hold privilege; a conditioning of minds and hearts to embrace  the societal games of power struggles for status and wealth; and daily trivial pursuits of more and more shopping.

We are also conditioned to believe we need to build bigger and bigger Military, to spend inordinate amounts of money in that regard, while people suffer and starve all over the world.

If you cannot truly believe that we can build a better world in alignment with the Age of Aquarius, then I know which side of the fence you will fall from.

The coming world changes will be devastating for those who have not landed on the New World side of the fence.   They will only know the battles for survival, the fights with the enemies, the needs to prop up the economy, the dominating hands of order against the growing changes.

On the New World Side of the fence there is a sense of meaning for the coming changes, there is light to lead the way, there is consciousness and frequencies to help us to evolve and create a new world,  there are fellow travelers to build family with, there is a  sense of purpose; there is magic and synchronicity and knowing of the connections that bring all into wholeness. There is love and truth to hold us together.

For this coming week, the last week of February 2015, it is a good time to gather ourselves and our lives, to find gratitude for what we appreciate in our lives, to go deeper in our meditations and prayers, to give strong intent to healing our wounds and traumas as best we can.

There is little indication, outside of the recent New Moon in Aquarius, for big steps forward.  That is because Saturn is strong with its square to the Sun in Pisces on Monday and its trines to Venus and  Mars mid week. And the more flowing Sun in Pisces conjuncts its ruling planet Neptune on Wednesday.

Except for a mercurial minds moving fast with Moon in Gemini Wednesday and Thursday, it is a week of slo-mo.

Perhaps late week will bring some transformational rumblings with Jupiter making minor aspect to Pluto, triggering the Uranus/Pluto square.

Much more intensity on the way in March.

Till next week,

Leo

I will create a new YouTube video in mid March to talk about all the changes with Spring Eclipse Season 2015.
