The Fool and Astrology Forecast March 25-31

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Remember Y2K?  Remember the Mayan Calendar date in December 2012?  And there were many other times that it was predicted we were moving into some transition into End Times or a New World?

Look around you now.  Can you not sense that the true time of transition is Now?

Today as I write there are many people all over the USA and world who are standing up and declaring it is  time now to make tighter gun laws that will make our lives saner and safer.  March for Our Lives will change how we operate in our world, as is also true for the Me Too movement.

And it has taken horrible incidents to wake us up to the need for these changes.

So look around you now, out at the world.  The Stock Market is tanking as we predicted.  This is only the beginning, as we are in the process of transforming the economic system that has been running our world. The new system will be more equitable and will lessen the disparity between grotesquely wealthy and tragically poor. The values that Bernie Sanders represents are needed to assist this economic transformation.

And the other half of the Military/Economic Complex that President Eisenhower warned us about (the military), is also on the verge of huge shakeups.

Trump has brought in hawkish men into his administration, men who will be in important positions in regard to foreign affairs. Pompeo is now Secretary of State, and Bolton is now the National Security Counsel leader.

They will greatly influence the North Korea, Iran, Russia, China, and Syria situations.  You can expect wars unless something miraculous happens. A Trump drastic change of heart and mind; the end of the Trump presidency; or extraterrestrial intervention would qualify for such miracles.

If these wars do erupt, they will make us feel more deeply the horrible dangers we have put ourselves in.  And like Me Too and March for Our Lives we will be standing up in protest all over the world against the abuse of power that nuclear weapons are reflective of.

As a result, power in the world will move toward being more evenly spread; and nuclear weapons will  need to be wiped off the face of this world.

Yes now is the time we have been waiting for, and we are the ones we have been waiting for!

We need to stand up like these young people from Parkland Florida have been standing up! Civil Disobedience is the way forward into the Age of Aquarius.

And after April 15, events will begin to pour through the opened Portal, as at the same time more light and love will be pouring through.

That also means we will be even more pushed to work with our blocks, our old patterns, our traumas, our belief systems, our tired old ego stories, our identification with being   victims, and of course all the programming from the culture that has sought to make us all sheep.

As we clear these blockages, we clear the way for the Great Awakening, for the Truth and Love that are the foundation for our new world.

This week we are just recently moved into Mercury Retrograde.  It is a time to process more deeply, to fix what needs to be fixed and heal what needs to be healed. It is time to  reflect on the past so we can put it behind us.

People from our past may come to us in dreams, vivid memories or even in person.  This comes to us so we can put the past into perspective, learn what needs to be learned so we can lessen the load of our baggage moving forward.

We are clearly in a New Chapter of life, collectively and personally.  And the portal opening after April 15 will accelerate our transition through this New Chapter.

The “old normal” wants to be released, and you may not find a “new normal” for awhile.

So now can feel rather insecure at times, as what we considered normal is being left behind. But this also means that creative energies are more alive than usual, which is good for new ideas and creating new ways to be.

Besides Mercury being Retrograde this week, we also are moved into the second quarter of the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the Pisces New Moon on March 17. Plus 4 planets are in action oriented, take charge Aries.

So while energies are intensifying and sometimes feel like they are pushing us forward, remember we are at the same time put on “Pause” with Mercury Retrograde.

Do not be impulsive now.  Let this time period play out. Look before you jump.  The Fool Card need not be played now,  though a week from Sunday is April Fool’s Day on Easter Sunday.

Keep in mind that Mercury is a trickster, especially when in Retrograde.  So be alert to your mind playing tricks on you now.

The day before April Fool’s Day is a Full Moon in Libra on Saturday March 31 at 8:37 AM EDT.

That means the Sun is in Aries directly opposite the Full Moon in Libra.

Me first or us together; conflict or peace; action or deliberation, letting it all out or being conscious of social norms are potential themes for this Full Moon.

And remember that a Full Moon and Mercury Retrograde together can make things rather foggy and unclear.

Do not make any important decisions or drastically change directions from what you had previously chosen.

And during Mercury Retrograde we often question what we are doing, where we are going, or what have previously decided.  Wait for a week or more after Mercury goes back Direct before making the decision or changing directions.

And sometimes electronics can go haywire and communication can be confused.  Pay closer attention than usual to what has been written and what has been said.

Be very careful not jumping to conclusions with texts. Make sure the other person understands what you meant in your texting.

Start getting clear about the values and priorities that are important to you as we move into this New Chapter of our lives.  Those values are the foundation of your new world.

There is nothing to be afraid of now if you believe Love, Truth, and higher meaning are the pillars of this New World. Your view on life will then usually be of a glass half full.

If you instead see all as meaningless, random, and fear filled, then the glass of your life will end up looking half empty.

Sure things are looking scary sometimes out in the world, but know the movement overall is about death of the old world and birth of a new one, the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Mercury Retrograde, Spring Equinox and Astrology Forecast March 18-24

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 17, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week with Mars entering Capricorn, New Moon  in Pisces, Spring Equinox and Mercury Retrograde.

This means the energy fields we move within are changing this week.  The changes will shift our consciousness and lives in preparation for the Portal Opening on April 15.

It is obvious now that the greater world and culture we reside within is in a chaotic and not so predictable state of being.   The White House is reflective of this state of being, and it is in shambles, and always in some sort of transition.

And of course whether you feel in alignment with the new Administration or not, this Administration and its volatility are a symbol of the condition of the USA right now.

The Stock Market and economy; the Mueller probe; the porn actress’s accusations; the growing dangers with Iran, Syria, Israel, North Korea; the trade wars; and the macho strutting with Russia and China put all of us on our toes waiting for even greater changes.

We are in the midst of an enormous transformation of the country and world.

Trump is not causing the chaotic climate that makes us ripe for such transformation. He is instead a lead actor on the world stage, just the right actor to help facilitate world events that will take us to the edge of darkness,  so we can call on the Phoenix who will rise from the ashes of our old paradigm’s burning.

Some are already getting into survivalist mode, while others not as alarmed are  still being called to make changes in their consciousness and lives, changes that are aligned with the world we are moving into.

Others of us are not sure what direction to move toward, and are seemingly waiting for events to unfold to show the way.

The next few weeks will not show us clear direction, however, especially so because Mercury is going Retrograde on March 22 at 8:19 PM EDT.

As usual the ‘re’s will in charge during Mercury Retrograde: rewind, reflect, readjust, rebalance, remind, realign.

There is much processing to do now, as it is not time now to move toward bottom line decisions and even bottom line logical answers.

Allow Mercury Retrograde to have you go inward to reflect, to question what has been previously understood or decided, to bring to you memories of the past and to bring back people to you from your past.

The people from the past will likely not stay with you after they return, though sometimes they do.  The questioning of previous understandings and decisions does not mean you will truly change your direction from what you have chosen, but sometimes it does.

The New Moon in Pisces this Saturday the 17th was at 9:12 AM EDT.  Though it is a New Moon, Pisces is not a sign of action to move forward.

Pisces brings everything together in integration and unity, to get ready for the movement forward later, this time after the New Moon in Aries on April 15.

Pisces is the sign for the last month of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the transition sign for moving into new beginnings of Spring.

As such we now do soul searching, shadow integration, and getting in touch with deeper feelings;  especially feelings of sadness and grief, of fading memories, of snapshots of previously not remembered early life events.

We face ghosts of the past,  want to resolve old issues, and hopefully find some closure.

This Pisces time we are doing even deeper soul diving than usual, wanting to gather everything together in anticipation of the coming forward movement in our lives, collectively and personally.

There may be some energetic confusion as we also experience the beginning of spring this week.  It is on Tuesday March 20 at 12:15 PM EDT.

This is the first moment of the Sun’s movement into Aries, as it does to begin every Spring Equinox.

Aries is the force of new life buds bursting through the branches. It is a baby being born, a teenager’s awkward movement form childhood to adulthood.  It is a new challenge, a competition, showing a new way, standing up for yourself or what you believe in, being brave even when you are afraid,  fighting the good fight, self assertion, self honoring, alpha attitude, and taking action.

The confusion may come from the fact that Mercury is going Retrograde and there is a need to process and rewind before truly moving forward.

So use this Spring Equinox Aries entry to begin to wake yourself up! Winter is over, even if the weather still feels like Winter.  The turning point energetically is happening this week, so get in touch with that energy and wake your self from the doldrums of Winter, from being kinda depressed from such a harsh and difficult winter.

No need to go fast forward, just wake up. Soon there will be the need for action and for fresh events to manifest. But not now. Even action oriented Mars is being affected by the gravity of Capricorn now.

It moved into Capricorn on the 17th at the New Moon in Pisces. It will stay in Capricorn until May 16, when it goes into Aquarius.

But this year Mars will go back into Capricorn from mid August till Mid September.

The reason is because Mars goes Retrograde on June 26, then retraces its previous steps.

Mars in Capricorn takes away the spontaneous and sometimes impulsive instinct of Mars.

Mars puts on a uniform of military or police when in Capricorn, giving it discipline and boundaries, rules and structure to act within.

So with Mars now in Capricorn, it is time to ground your actions, to make goals and commitments, to organize and plan, to make manifest.

Just remember that we are in Mercury Retrograde until April 15, so there may be some confusion till then, and if you are not that confused, you will still need to wait before manifesting or making absolute statements.

After April 15 the train of our lives starts it engines, but remember that Mercury will just begin to be Direct that day, so total clarity may still need to form, and movement will still not be fast forward. Big events will likely be a few weeks or a few months away then.

So with all this knowledge look at the country and world.  The White House will still be rearranging the deck chairs of its Titanic voyage.

There  will be more employee firings and hirings this coming month, more drama and confusion, more setting the stage for coming events.

Trump is planning to meet with Kim Jong Un in April or May; the USA is moving its embassy to Jerusalem in May. Other important world events will spring forward in April, May and later this year.

Your life and consciousness are working out  what needs to be worked out now. Do your best not to judge your self now or what you did or didn’t do in the past.

Let go of old stories that keep you stuck.  Let go of old stories that make you feel like a victim or loser or failure or horrible person.

The past, no matter what it was, is a stepping stone for your life as it grows and transforms into one of purpose and authenticity, one of love and forgiveness.

Love yourself from all time periods and ages of your life. Have compassion for your self, for the seeming mistakes you might have made. Forgive yourself and others as best you can organically.

It is almost time for us all to move forward more fully into this New Chapter of our lives on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

And the less baggage we take with us from our past the better.  No you will not be able to tie a pretty bow on all those traumas and disappointments, disillusions and heart wounds.

But you can forgive, learn to trust enough, and have faith all happens with meaning.

You can gain enough closure to be able to move forward. But do not despair if all has not been worked out to total satisfaction. It never is perfect.

Till next week,

Leo

Stand Up and Astrology Forecast March 11-17

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 10, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Most of this week has us in the last quarter of the lunar cycle.   That is until The New Moon in Pisces on Saturday March 17 at 9:12 AM EDT.

Yes for most we will be on Daylight Savings Time starting this Sunday the 18th.  So in a way we get mixed messages.   We get more waking light minutes of the day, while still in the dark of Winter and while moving through the last and darkening phase of the Moon.

Spring will begin next week on March 20th, but then will be closely followed by Mercury going Retrograde on March 22.

There is so much swirling in the world around us now, and much of it brings uncertainty and has us moving into unknown territory.

Trump and Kim Jong Un of North Korea seem to have agreed on a personal meeting that will apparently concentrate on North Korea denuclearizing.  With Mercury going Retrograde soon, there will likely be many difficulties on the path toward a meeting and denuclearizing.

Between now and April 15 at the Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus, Mercury going back Direct, and a Yod Finger of God aspect with the USA natal Mars, much will be shifting and changeable. 

That Finger of God to the USA natal Mars will be a major turning point for the USA military, the police, and gun laws.

North Korea will either look like a major conflict is on the way, or instead it will be more certainly moving toward a peaceful solution.  The meeting between the two leaders is intended to be by May.

And the USA is moving its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem also in May.  This could be cause for much anger in the Arab and Muslim world.

So you can see how the April 15 portal opening that includes the Yod to the USA Mars, may play out with North Korea and Israel/Palestine.

Keep in mind also that Donald Trump was born on a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius.  That new moon has the Sun at 22+ degrees Gemini and his Moon at 21+ degrees of Sagittarius. The USA natal Mars is at 21+ degrees of Gemini, so you can see that what is coming will powerfully affect both the USA and Donald Trump.

A few days later on the 18th, Saturn goes Retrograde and its gravitational certainty will be circulating strongly in our collective energy field. The feeling of fate is in the air then

Make no mistake about it, mid April is a major turning point for this country and world.

That does not mean big events will necessarily explode on that day, but it does mean the portal will open for major events coming soon afterward.

The stock market and economy also deserve attention now and after the portal opens.

Trump’s presidency also is being threatened now, as the Russia investigation keeps picking up steam. After the 15th events will accelerate even more.

Remember however, that this coming week of March 11- 17 will bring energies that are moving inward and yin-ward, downward and for finishing up and processing.

So many personal lives are now up in the air, waiting for coming changes or uncertain what to do or what direction to take.

And certainty will be even more elusive as we get into Mercury Retrograde soon.

So do your best now to be patient and wait. Otherwise you will get anxious and stressed, or depressed.  Sometimes we must wait for clarity and direction to appear, as linear bottom line answers do not easily form.

Yet there is much to be gained in the process of waiting.  Our souls can be very enriched while processing our thoughts and feelings, while meeting up against our hopes and fears, while learning more about ourselves and others.

In the greater world, so much has shifted in the last couple of years or so.    The paradigm the world has known is obviously shifting, even with the difficulties and disappointments we are now experiencing.

We are also being reminded of what is wrong with our world. Why has fame and fortune become the American Dream?  Even in many so-called liberal circles, wealth and notoriety, pedigree and privilege are such a high priority to gain.

Where have the values of our “better angels” gone?  Where has our empathy and compassion gone? How about kindness, integrity, truth, honesty, dignity, respect, and heart centered love?

Why does it seem that money, power, and privilege have become culturally more important than those values?

What kind of world are we delivering to our kids and grandkids?

I heard one young man who survived the Florida school massacre say to Bill Maher on his show:  Paraphrased he passionately said that previous generations have f’d up our world and so this new generation will have to fix it.

And are we setting an example for them? How many have given up their more idealistic  values from their youth because the “real” world has disillusioned and disappointed them, so they decided to play the game instead of keeping the integrity of their better values? And in the process, what has happened to their souls.

For those who have done that, you can work to bring those values back now so we can fight with these kids for a New Paradigm for living with each other and or Earth home.

And following the rules is not the same as holding better values.  Inner values reflect what your mind, heart, and soul know to be true, known to be what brings us together with respect and love.

It is time for each of us to speak up for what we know is right, as has begun to happen with women who are speaking up like never  before, and like how young people are beginning to speak up about guns, etc.

Yet it is time for all of us to stand up and speak our truth.  Keeping quiet is the same as agreeing.  It enables the bad behavior and bad attitudes.

And in your personal life too, you do not need to keep quiet about what is bothering you.  You can stand up and speak your truth.

The condition of your life is your responsibility.  You are not a helpless victim.

The condition of our world is our collective responsibility. We are not victims.

We the people are the ones who will transform the world into the Age of Aquarius.

Don’t concentrate on those who seem to not be redeemable and who will not change.

Focus on attracting those who want to bring the Age of Aquarius values to the real world- as you do.

It is a waste of time trying to convince others to believe.

Be confident in what you believe, and be an example for others to follow. Who you are speaks volumes.

Till next week

Leo

Follow the Yellow Brick Road and Astrology Forecast March 4-10

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 3, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We pretty much leave Eclipse Season this coming week.  And Jupiter switches from Direct to Retrograde late Thursday March 8, putting an end to the rare event of All Planets being Direct, which has been happening since the first of this current year.

And later this week, on Friday March 9, we begin the last quarter of a lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15. A new lunar cycle begins at the Pisces New Moon on March 17.

Where are we both collectively and in our personal lives now?

We will now be able to process all the changes, events, emotions, thoughts, etc. that have been swirling in our lives this Eclipse Season.

Then after Mercury goes Retrograde on March 22, we will have even more time and inclination to reflect, ponder, analyze, and go deeper into our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls.

Then after April 15, the dogs are released through the Portal that will be opened then. There will be then a New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus, Mercury going Direct, and a Yod Finger of God encompassing the USA natal Mars.

This will be a time of important of new starts, and important world and personal events that will mostly be understood in the context of the events of the last two Eclipse Seasons.

Much has happened in our personal and collective lives since last July 2017.  Much has happened more specifically since this last January 2018, when Winter Eclipse Season 2018 began.

Remember also that on Winter Solstice 2017, Saturn went into its favorite sign Capricorn  on Winter Solstice day, making a strong conjunction with the Sun in Capricorn. This gave us a Winter ’17/’18 signature.

That signature told us how serious and down turning winter would be, and how gravity (ruled by Saturn and Capricorn) would bring a metaphorically quite strong down-pull or down-fall.

In large part because of that knowledge I predicted a severe downward turn of the then “flying high mania”  Stock Market.

And it was so.

And this is only the beginning of the downturn, which will become a crash, and then an important transformation of the USA and world economies.

The future holds a much more Bernie Sanders kind of economy, and a severely transformed world into Diversity within Unity for an Age of Aquarius.

In the meantime the process will not be pretty.  There is a USA downfall that we are experiencing led by the Trump administration, very likely coming major wars in the world, and a continued internal USA civil and culture war.

This chaos will bring many governments to try to overly control their citizens, while said chaos will also bring much creative energy to stand up to the controls and to what has been a largely corrupt and unfair old world structure. This “standing up” is already in gear.

Movement to overthrow this current USA administration through impeachment will continue to grow.

All this turmoil is a clearing for the Age of Aquarius,  coming on the heels of the chaos.

I promise videos and podcasts soon (before April 15), and some will be with David Sanipass as we did last year.

This week we experience Jupiter going Retrograde on Thursday and the 4th quarter of the current lunar cycle beginning on Friday.  And before all that both Mercury and Venus will enter Aries on Tuesday the 6th of March (my birthday).

Venus and Mercury leave flowing and sensitive Pisces to be in straight forward, direct, and assertive Aries for awhile.

Both Venus and Mercury are relational planets, so relationships can expect to be more sometimes brutally honest with one another.

If you have been walking on eggs with someone, not wanting to upset them or the status quo, you will start feeling more motivated to assert your truth with them.

In world affairs the same thing will be happening, as people will stop mincing words and instead be more open about what they want to assert.  Aries challenges and confronts, often with force.

On Thursday when up-lifting and expansive Jupiter is stationary waiting to change directions, there should be a spike in hopeful and joyful feelings.  But that will in many cases be temporary, as Jupiter will then go Retrograde for the next 4 months.

Also as Jupiter is changing directions, some people will be impulsive, saying what they would not normally say or jumping into something without caution.

The last quarter Moon is in Sagittarius on March 9. That means the Sun is in laid back Pisces, being countered by free spirited adventurous Sagittarius.  You could be conflicted between those two quite different ways of being.

We will be in the last quarter till March 17 at the New Moon in Pisces. As usual the last quarter opens us up to process and reflect on what has been and where we are at.

Sometimes energies or events are so accelerated or intense, that we lose ourselves or our perspective.

In this 4th quarter and beyond, through the soon approaching Mercury Retrograde, all the way to  April 15; we have the ability to gather ourselves, to shake off the dust of recent experiences, and to look our lives and selves right in the eye of truth.

If you judge yourself or others too harshly now, however, you will be unaligned and taken off track.   You are human and we make mistakes, and all we can do is apologize if need be, atone (at-one), learn form the mistakes, and promise our selves to do our best to never repeat the same mistakes.

Many of you who regularly read this blog, consider your self on a soul’s journey.  And right now, our souls are in the beginning stages of a world storm, a storm that seeks to shake up the status quo.  It is not an easy time for many now.

I know many of you are quite concerned and sometimes fearful of what is happening to our country and world..

If you look from a bigger picture at our human story over the past hundreds of years, you will see many challenges and forks in the road.  And though we sure messed up a lot, we also are quite resilient and resourceful and creative.  And we have been incredibly loving and caring so much of the time, even if history books do not tell us that.

We have created such works of beauty and artistry, built awesome civilizations, adventurously travelled so far, even to the Moon.  We are the only Earth creatures to do all this.

Yes we have also been so nasty, murderous, self serving, greedy, and hateful.

But we always do seem to somehow grow and evolve in so many ways.

And we are all now so close to one another through mass communication, social media,  mass transportation, world commerce, and all together under the Sun and Moon, and having the same basic human needs.

So now our growing edge is knowing and honoring our connections, not seeing ourselves as all separate and enemies with one another. It is no longer good enough to only know connections based on negotiations, trades, and contrived circumstances.

It is time to know and honor that we are all connected in our hearts and souls naturally, all parts of the same human family.  It is time to know that the Universe has all the dots connected, not random. It is time to know we live a meaningful existence, on a sacred home planet, in a beautiful diverse Universe, all together as One.

Dark and light, male and female, yin and yang- many differences but all connected as One.

Deeply knowing all this will help us to evolve to our next level, all in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

To Be or Not to Be and Astrology Forecast March 2-15

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 1, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

It is transition time this week, as Mercury has just gone Direct; there is a New Moon in Pisces Saturday March 1 at 3 AM EST; Mars changes directions and goes Retrograde- also on March 1; Saturn goes Retrograde on March 2; and Jupiter goes Direct on Thursday March 6.

As planets change direction, either from Direct to Retrograde or from Retrograde to Direct; their meaning and energy have increased intensity and importance.

Add the New Moon in Pisces to these directional shifts, and there will be a feeling of new horizons to move toward, new consciousness to experience, and deeper feelings to explore.

A symbol of Pisces is two fishes going in opposite directions.  This is symbolic of navigating one’s soul consciousness waters and deciding which direction to move in- upstream or downstream, positive or negative.

Though the Pisces world is often rather nebulous, and hence it does not always know what it wants or what direction to go; most Pisces people do tend to be either glass half full or glass half empty people.

Sure the more positive Pisces can have periods of dark negativity, feelings of hurtful victimization; negative ways of escapism like drugs, alcohol, or disassociation, and not feeling up to the task of being in “reality”, they nevertheless always go back to their core of resilience, faith in life, and hope for better times.

The glass half empty Pisces has moments of hope and joy, but at their core they identify with being a victim and not up to the task of cold hard reality, as they see it.

Though both are dreamers and know inside themselves what a better humanity would look like, the half full Pisces believes we can one day create heaven on Earth, while the half empty Pisces down deep believes human life is painful and history will keep repeating itself.

So these next few weeks, with emphasis on this coming week as planets are changing directions and Pisces has its annual new moon event, it is time for each of us, no matter what sign, to decide if our personal glass of life is half full or half empty.

With the planets changing directions during this Pisces mutable month before spring, events and inner stirrings will draw you into deeper and changeable feelings and consciousness.

As we shift, is there hope in your heart or cynicism at your core?

Mercury going direct should help you to revive and think more clearly now.   Mars and Saturn changing directions at the same time this weekend may have you feeling both stop and go inside your self- desires to act and caution to hold back.  Best to not go to any extremes, not be impulsive, and just “let it pass”.

When Mars goes Retrograde, which it will do from March 1- May 19, it is a significant passage as it happens only once every other year.  While it is retrograde we are going deeper to decide what we truly want or desire and what direction we want to move toward.  We also may be dealing with issues of will, assertiveness, empowerment, and anger during that time

By mid week this week, however, as Jupiter goes Direct on Thursday March 6 (where it will stay until December) ; there should be feelings of renewal and perhaps an expansive outpouring of emotions.

Jupiter going Direct will sweep you into your inner tides of soulful feelings and emotions, and deeper into deciding “glass half full or half empty”?

This is important now to stay with, be present for, and find your way to deciding.  As winds of change will pick up appreciably after March 30 at the Aries Moon, a new moon that will push us over the edge into a most powerful Spring Eclipse Season 2014; it is time now over the next 4 weeks to build a more solid inner foundation.

This week especially your inner world may swirl back and forth, up and down like a ship on the ocean.  It is a great time to meditate, to go with your flow, and especially to watch your dreams, both waking and sleeping.   Put a journal next to your bed and record your dreams, looking for signs and symbols to reveal your inner truths.

The greater world also will be swirling and bouncing up and down with events, looking like it is not sure where it is going. The stock market should be up and down looking for direction; current hot spots like Syria, Iran, Ukraine, Thailand, Egypt, Israel, Afghanistan, Venezuela, and Korea may be swinging back and forth from dangerous to settled. Ukraine right now is especially important as old Cold War issues between Russia and the West are surfacing again, as they battle for control of that country.

As a culture we are needing to know what direction we are moving in on many issues.  Are we on the verge of giving a better living wage to workers or not?  Are we now going to commit our world to meeting the challenge of Climate Change on Earth?  Or better yet are we going to commit to healing our Earth and developing worldwide policies to clean the environment, and begin developing clean energy sources?

Have we turned the corner to believe our world and its people are of one family, with many varied members:  Diversity in Unity?  That belief will help us to eventually evolve to a new species, one that knows ONENESS, and knows all the dots of the Universe are connected and held up by the twin pillars of Love and Truth? Or are we going to have another world war, a war built on the cynical belief that all tribes of human are out for themselves, against all others for the wealth and power of the world?

How we see it will determine what will manifest.  Glass Half Full or Half Empty?

In your personal life the same issue is before you.  Have all your relationship “failures” brought you to believe you are undeserving and will never have healthy relationships, that all men or women are no good, that you have horrible luck or are jinxed?

Or do you believe each of your past relationships, whether family, friend or romantic, happened for a reason, was a learning experience, and deepened your soul awareness, your empathy and wisdom?

Of course we go back and forth sometimes in our emotions and beliefs, the pain so horrible we see only the pit of despair below.   But we can navigate those soul waters, with perhaps a little help from our friends, healers, therapists and counselors, to learn to see from a wider perspective, and to know we are evolving and progressing.

As we soon move into Spring Eclipse 2014 Season, where will your soul swimming take you?  What will your glass of life look like?

Or as Hamlet said, “To Be or Not To Be, That is the Question”.

I will be in Mexico on the ocean for vacation till March 10.  Not sure if I will write next Saturday or not.  If I do it will be shorter than usual.

The next full forecast will be at the Ides of March on March 15,  just before the Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo.

talk with you soon,

Leo

Lifting the Fog as Mercury goes Direct and Astrology Forecast February 23- March 1

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on February 22, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Tides are beginning to shift this week out of the recent doldrums.  Early in the week Jupiter squares Uranus, activating the Cardinal T-square and bringing energies intended to awaken us from any slumber we have drifted into.

Mercury will also be awakening our sense of clarity as it finally goes back Direct this coming Friday February 28 at 9 AM EST.   If full clarity and direction have not been found yet at that time, wait a few days for Mercury to get close to its usual speed.  Then this Twilight Zone mind frame you have been experiencing will be lifted from its fog of uncertainty.

You will then feel more confident to make decisions and make plans.   That will be especially true after the New Moon in Pisces on March 1 at 3 AM EST, as a feeling of new beginnings gets sparked in our consciousness.

That does not mean it is time to move fast forward.  This New Moon is in Pisces, so the new beginnings are to be found more in your consciousness than in your actions.

There is a new day dawning, and spring is getting closer.   The alarm clock is ringing for you to get up, but metaphorically speaking you will need time to shower, do some stretches, and get a good breakfast before taking on the world.

Getting out in full action in the world will happen later in March, after the New Moon in Aries on March 30.

That new moon will trigger the Spring Eclipse Season 2014, a more powerful than usual Eclipse Season as it will also contain an exact Cardinal Grand Cross.  That Cardinal Grand Cross will contain the exact Uranus/Pluto square within it, and transformational energies will be especially strong.  There will be only two more exact passes of Uranus square Pluto, one in December 2014 and the last one in March 2015.

The one this April that is part of the Cardinal Cross is the most important pass of all.  It is pointed right on the USA natal Sun from its birth on July 4 1776.

This spring represents a major turning point for the world and especially for America.    This does not necessarily mean that everything will change drastically at that time.  It does mean, however, that the “writing will be on the wall” of our awareness,  showing us more clearly where our human train is headed and what will be needed to clear the way into the Age of Aquarius.

We have been talking about chaos versus order being a major theme now and most especially this coming spring and summer.

You can get a taste of this by watching the dramas unfold in Ukraine.  Opposition forces have been trying to break down the current government and the government has been using quite forceful methods to keep the order.  Chaos and order have been intertwined with one another.  As a backdrop, Russia and Western powers are fighting for influence there.

There will likely be big breakdowns coming to the structures in the USA soon, and as a result there will be quite forceful means to keeping the status quo and order.  Whether this happens in the form of a stock market crash or terrorism or an outbreak of war between Israel and Iran or something else is not certainly known.

It is also possible that more surprising events could break open. What is important is that the world as we know it is not viable anymore.  It is run by a paradigm that does not honor love or trust or truth, that does not see all of us as connected, that does not search for solutions that will heal our Earth or human family.

Winning, wealth, celebrity, and power are the values most promoted in our culture.  Fear and feelings of failure, hopelessness, ego problems, anxiety, depression,  and separation are the results for many.

Just look at our politics for instance.  The Netflix drama “House of Cards” shows in an exaggerated and dramatic way the values of our culture.  Winning is everything and at all costs, and the ends justify the means.

On news talk shows there is much talk already of who will win the presidency in 2016.  There is so little talk about issues or values, and if they are discussed it is in the context of the other side being painted as enemies.

Where are the leaders who care most about bringing us all together as one, not only in our own country but all over the world? Where are the leaders more concerned about healing our Earth and human family than about corporate profits or victory?

Hey I do like sports, but they are only games.   Our political system treats what should be a discussion of what will be best for our community into a game of winning versus losing, with losing candidates shamed and winning candidates treated like heroes.

Yes this system and its paradigm need to come down.   How can we live in a world where CEO’S earn million of dollars a year while other people work for $10/hour?  How can we maintain a world where people who play the game right, are the most selfish, and kiss the right asses are rewarded with wealth and privilege, while others who tell the truth, are talented and bright, and care about doing what is right and working hard struggle just to survive?

How can we live much longer in a world that puts so many of its citizens in prison?  Can it be so many people are just plain bad or evil?  Or can it be that we have created a world that punishes those who have a difficult time fitting in or caring about themselves?

To make this point did you know that 65% of male to female and 29% of female to male transgender people have spent time in jail? Both those figures are much higher than the general population.

As painful as it is to imagine this society breaking down, what is the alternative?  To keep the status quo of an unfair and corrupt world structure?

Everyone is not connected to their authentic soul self or to the Universe, have not broken out of the programming of a fear based, ego based, power and greed based, guilt based society.

Yes we can each continue to walk our spiritual path, being an example for others, shining a light wherever we walk.   But there are many who are mentally ill or imprisoned, handicapped in some way, not privy to new consciousness, buried in fear and only able to see the world through the eyes of its programs and rules.

In my estimation it will take important and dramatic world events to transform the collective consciousness well enough so we can heal this Earth, our home in time.

Each time there is a powerful set of planetary configurations, as there is this spring and summer, there is a spike in earth shaking energies that are intended to break down the old and open the doors and windows to new consciousness for a new age.

Let us pray that these divine, natural energies will bring change as graceful as possible to our world.

I will be on vacation from March 2-10, so will miss one Saturday forecast on March 8.

I have decided to do the next YouTube video at the Spring Equinox, to be more attuned to what Spring Eclipse Season 2014 wil bring.

See you next week,

Leo

Spring Teasing and Astrology Forecast March 10-16

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 9, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week, we begin slightly to shift out of the holding pattern we have been in lately.   The following week after that we will truly begin to open up and feel the hope that naturally springs from the feeling of a “new day”.

There is a new moon this coming week, though we stay in Mercury Retrograde and rest in Winter slumber for a short while more.  Tonight Saturday March 9, overnight we turn our clocks ahead into Daylight Savings Time here in the United States.

And on Monday March 11 at 3:51 PM there is a New Moon in Pisces.   And early on Tuesday March 12, forceful Mars moves into its natural sign of Aries, revving up our action oriented engines, and starting sparks of initiation.

And also on March 12 you may be able to see the first of two comets passing our way.  Look at the slight crescent moon and nearby you might view Comet PanStaars, at its closest to the Sun around then.  Later this year a more prominent comet will seen, in late November: Comet ISON.

These shifts this week will give us a teasing light of flame as we move toward our rapidly approaching, “stormy” Spring Eclipse Season 2013.

The New Moon in Pisces this week, after we turn our clocks ahead to give us more light at the end of the day, will begin to stir up our souls for the hope of spring.

But remember that Mercury will still be retrograde, and Winter will not be quite over yet.   And though we are looking at a New Moon, which brings a push to new beginnings; this New Moon is in watery, slo-mo Pisces.    So it will still be time to look at the past to say goodbye, to release old memories and grieve a time gone by.

It will still be time to wade through the pools of our winter of discontent, and in turn filter out fantasy from reality as we get ready for a new chapter of our life.

Soon intensity will increase dramatically, however this coming week is merely a teasing transition from winter’s sensitive feelings to spring’s fires of new life.

In the greater world, the prevailing and decaying culture is showing us signs of coming upheaval.    The stock market is manic and out of touch will true economic reality; and thus perhaps this spring, but certainly this autumn there will be a great fall of the market.

And North Korea and Iran, the countries President Bush declared were part of an axis of evil, are now bringing self fulfilling prophecy and threatening our safety here in America and the western world.

It is likely events will bring the USA into new combat this spring or summer, likely with North Korea, Iran and/or Syria.  Jupiter and Mars during the coming Eclipse Season will be conjunct the USA natal Mars in Gemini, so major conflict is very likely. Uranus square Pluto will be exact this Spring 2013 also.

In your personal life, it is time to begin to think of awaking from Winter Slumber, and envisioning your activity and potential changes in 2013.

The opportunities now to make positive change in your life are great this year.  But it will not happen if you cling to the familiar old stories that may help you feel safe, but keep you locked up and frozen in old familiar  time.

If you keep your mind and heart open, you will likely find doors opening into chapters of your life.  These openings will bring you into new places in your heart and mind.   Your authentic Soul Self is waiting for you to break though old societal and family programming that has kept that Soul Self chained by  ego’s needs for control.

You are not who you have been conditioned to believe who you are. Families mold people into roles that keep old dysfunctional dramas in existence.

When you look in the mirror of their eyes, you stay who you are expected to be.  Your authentic Self will thus stay in an ego shell, limited and locked up.  Your health will suffer, mentally and physically.     These family roles are in league with societal expectations.  Roles, and especially gender expectations, are handed down generation to generation, with little wiggle room for true individuality.

Meditation, and other healing, metaphysical and spiritual practices will help you to reach and actualize this Soul Self.  As you do, and as you become committed to its actualization, layers of old programmed skin will fall off.

There may be great pain in shedding these layers of skin, but much feeling of liberation, hope and joy accompany these labor pains.

And now, as we accelerate the speed of our voyage into an Aquarian Age, beams of new consciousness light seek to penetrate our layers of protection of our Authentic Self.

It will be more and more stressful to keep your Soul locked down.    Like our prevailing culture, if you stay stuck in old ways, you will be more and more ruled by fear, and needs to control.  You will separate your self from your fellow human being as well as your Soul Self.

The bubble you create keeps you in your ego-mind, and in “unconscious’ habits and obsessions.

This coming Eclipse Season 2013, with an unusual 3 eclipses instead of 2, and another exact Uranus square Pluto, brings great intensity that will rock our world and destabilize the status quo.

Allow your Self to open to the sunshine of new consciousness, to the fresh air of magic, meaning, synchronicity, and connection to deeper self, the Universe and your fellow human being.   You will then know that all the dots of the Universe are connected in sacred unity, waiting for us to realize.

See you next week when Mercury goes back Direct and we celebrate the Spring Equinox,

Leo
