The Unknown Beckons and Astrology Forecast November 3-9

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on November 2, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Sometimes lately everything feels so surreal, or like being in the mystery of the Twilight Zone that resides between worlds or dimensions.

Astrologically, the Sun is certainly now within the confines of Scorpio, a sign that moves through shades and layers of gray and black.

Pluto is the “ruler” of Scorpio, and also Pluto is known in myth as the Guardian of the Underworld.   Mainstream culture has tried for many hundreds of years, especially through its religions, to turn all that is Pluto and Scorpio into Devil and Hell.

And that judgment by many mainstream institutions and religions has pushed the natural energies and frequencies of Scorpio/Pluto further under ground.  From that repressed and controlled state of being, it has been growing in rage.

Scorpio healthy is passion, natural instincts, and a penetration into deeper and deeper realities of the Soul. It understands pain and suffering, and from that empathetic state of being feels deep compassion for those who suffer.

Scorpio/Pluto is the mysteries that are sensed in the darkness, and as such is a natural partner with the Moon, our global “night light” that helps us feel safe.

This fear of the dark, this sometimes obsessive attraction for the dark as well, has led us into degrading sexual behaviors, and abusive power that is often mixed with sex.

The repression and demonizing of Pluto has also had a hand in obsessive needs for power and control. Pluto is the planet most associated with power and power abuses.

And that need for power has brought powerful weapons into our world, most especially nuclear and atomic bombs, which are so dangerous to our lives, as is Climate Change.

Pluto and Scorpio can also represent war, the ultimate power struggle.

In January 2020, along with 2 eclipses, Pluto will be in conjunction with Saturn. The first winds of Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 will blow in around the time of the next New Moon, which is in Sagittarius on November 26.

Back to this week, and for the next few weeks, Scorpio and Mercury Retrograde will be in  our energetic spotlight.

Deep emotional issues may want to come up into your conscious mind and heart now or soon.  A triggering of past traumas is possible.

Fear is the only “enemy” we need to be concerned with.  OK to feel in short spurts, but not good if taking over your mind and feelings.

Dark and Light are natural partners and like the Yin/Yang symbol they are joined in a circle though quite opposite from one another.

Bridges between the opposites is so needed now:  Dark and Light, Male and Female, Straight and Gay, Yang and Yin, and globally between those of the Far East and those of the West.

Remember that our new paradigm is about the connections and unity, but in a new way.

The old paradigm showed unity between people who are all the same.

Now we are on the precipice of the Age of Aquarius, which is about Diversity within Unity.

So now we honor, respect, and appreciate the differences, agreeing to disagree sometimes.

Yet now we are learning from each other, appreciating the differences, and  most importantly not trying to make the other person to be just like us, or vice versa trying to change ourselves in order to better fit with someone else.

We have been created just right, and our being true to our authentic Self is quite right. Original Sin concept keeps everyone controlled by guilt.

And we are learning to be true to our individuality, while at the same time sincerely looking for what brings us together in Unity.

So this week stay aware of Mercury being Retrograde, which may affect you to being kind of spacy- forgetting things.  And also it may be wise to pay closer attention to exactly what we are saying and how people are receiving what we are intending to communicate.

Sometimes we are  almost forced to make big decisions or signing important contracts during Mercury Retrograde. Try your best to avoid, but if you cannot, realize it is meant to be. Then make sure your intuition is involved and your heart has a “say” too.

And while the Sun is in Scorpio and Mercury is Retrograde in Scorpio this week, another  important planetary meeting will take place,

On Tuesday November 5, Mars makes a challenging square to our previously dissected guardian of the underworld:  Pluto

Mars and Pluto together are quite explosive when joined together.

Mars, god of war, in in peaceful Libra, while Pluto remains in Capricorn.Someone with their hand offered in peace or holding a religious book, will collide with the oh so powerful Pluto.

This aspect may just bring warnings, nothing else.  Not sure at this time.  With Mercury Retrograde now in Scorpio time, being impulsive is not good and could bring in some danger.

So please stay present for all parts of your self now.  Though of course we know the bigger picture shows us in transition for a Age of Aquarius, we know that in the smaller picture people let their fears and hatreds take over to create quite dangerous situations.

The current political climate borders on crazy.  And there is no one showing up to be the “grown-up” in the room.  Everyone seems to be mainly concerned with their political group winning while demonizing the other group or party.

Feels to me that we need a wake-up call event to happen.

Hopefully it is not too ferocious an event.

Till next week

Leo

New Moon in Scorpio, Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast October 27- November 2

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on October 26, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

On Sunday October 27, as the Sun and Moon join together at 4+ degrees of Scorpio, we become more aware of the increasing darkness and cold surrounding us here in the Northern Hemisphere of Planet Earth.

This New Moon in Scorpio opens the way to new beginnings, to moving forward in our lives. This may be especially so with issues of passion.  It is a good time at this Scorpio New Moon, to get in touch with what gives you passion.

Without passion, life may feel dull or lifeless.  What do you love to do with all your heart and soul? Now is a good time to find out and to begin whatever it is that gives you that spark again.

This conjunction of the Sun and Moon in Scorpio suggests that the emotional intensity level is increasing, that passions are stirring inside us, that issues of power and “making it real” are becoming front and center in our lives.

To add to the intensity level, Uranus is at 4+ degrees of Taurus, almost exactly opposite that Scorpio New Moon at 4+ degrees of Scorpio.

That Uranus placement symbolizes needs to break away and liberate oneself, from being controlled or dominated or ignored.

Uranus does not need to emotionally process issues as Scorpio often likes to do. Uranus just turns, leaves, breaks free, and allows itself to get outside any boxes in the mind that keep it small, dis-empowered, and vulnerable to any predator types that may be around.

Ironically on the same day of October 27, Mars is square Saturn.

Uranus and Saturn are so different from one another. While Uranus breaks open, breaks out, and liberates; Saturn stops up, contracts, focuses on getting things accomplished, and is disciplined.

Mars square Saturn can feel like there is one foot on the accelerator while the other foot is on the brakes – very frustrating.

So while things are opening up and liberating, at the same time there may be a feeling of being stuck.

Mars is square Saturn early on Sunday the 27th. The New Moon in Scorpio opposite Uranus is at 11:39 PM EDT.

Some issues in your life now may need your patience and self control, while other issues now may motivate you to open up and break free.

Likely in relationships one is needing to break away from too much co-dependence and/or ingrained habitual behavior.

But in the arena of accomplishment and manifesting, more patience and discipline is needed.

The world out there is looking and feeling more and more dysfunctional, corrupt, and filled with venom.

In America and other places too, things seem to be falling apart.  There is little room made for connection between peoples.  There is enemy making and childish “back and forth” insults.

So many world leaders are not even trying to seem fair and and just.  They are not even trying to cover up their selfish agendas or nasty ways.

Trump is the poster boy for what I am saying.  He is not working for any higher purpose. His allegiance is apparently not for the United States or the greater world. It is for moi.  His time is passing soon, however, whether by election or impeachment.

But if you look at places like Turkey and Egypt and China for instance, dominance of their own people is the rule of behavior, not the exception. And the USA, which had been a beacon of light to many people all over the world, looks like a joke or embarrassment to so many people now.

So much is ready to fall apart on the one hand, but is being overly controlled on the other hand. Chaos versus Order is a theme that will appear more and more as we go further forward.

It is pretty easy to see how our world is on the precipice of being reordered and “redrawn”.   The Age of Aquarius is developing under the surface, developing in our hearts, souls and minds. So many all over the world are waking up, but do not know what to do yet.

So this week begins with the New Moon in Scorpio, so close to being exactly opposite Uranus.  There are big changes rolling in now, and we need to be ready to roll with them.

I witnessed so many people this last week dealing with death in their lives, with family, friends, and mostly pets.

Some are not meant to be part of this New Chapter that is about to get more real and intense now.

Later this week Mercury goes Retrograde- on the 31st at 11:41 AM. This day is Samhain, or commonly called Halloween in the pop culture world we  live in.

Samhain is the time of year when the veils between worlds is the thinnest. It is a good time to make contact with loved ones on the other side. It is a good time to go inside your feelings and soul to see what may be going on just below your surface. And it is a good time to stay aware of your dreams and write them down.

The scariest part of the 31st this year, however, is the fact that Mercury goes Retrograde that day.

Mercury retrograde often does feel like one has entered the Twilight Zone during its time in Retrograde.

Slowly during the Retrograde we notice we are starting to question what we were so certain about before. Also we start to be more aware of events and people from our past, who appear in our dreams, our waking day dreams, and truly in the flesh sometimes.

They come back so we can rewind into issues that did not find closure. Or they come back to help us better understand a current relationship or situation.

Or sometimes, though more rarely, they come back because they are wanting to be in our lives again.

Same usual advice during Mercury Retrograde: Avoid having to make big decisions or start up important new ventures during the Retrograde.

Mercury goes back Direct on November 20. Then we start getting ready for Winter Eclipse Season 2019-20.

till next week,

Leo

Time of Intensity and Passion and Astrology Forecast October 20-26

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on October 19, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week shows signs of a decided downturn with a growing need to feel safe,  nurtured, at home, and peaceful.

The Moon in Cancer helps us to feel that way, especially so since that Moon in Cancer  shows us the beginning of the last quarter of this current lunar cycle, which effectively ends on October 27 at the New Moon in Scorpio.

This current cycle began at the New Moon in Libra on September 28, merely a week after Autumn Equinox, which is symbolic for a setting Sun in a darkening landscape.

And as we enter this 4th quarter of the waning, darkening Moon, we are energetically preparing ourselves for the Sun entering Scorpio on October 23, then waiting for the Moon to join that Sun in a New Moon in Scorpio on October 27 at 11:39 PM EDT

The sign Scorpio is “ruled” by Pluto, guardian of the underworld. So our experience deepens this week, opening doors into more intense feelings and emotions.

The Sun has been in Libra for the last month, and as such put us on a plateau of relative peace and contentment.

And some of you must be snickering at the phrase “peace and contentment” describing recent times. In contrast to what is coming, it was.

Since Saturn is right now widely conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, there is no escaping the feelings of sadness, grief, and/or fear for our world and our lives.

Those feelings will deepen even more starting this week, as we wait for a quite powerful  exact conjunction of Saturn and Pluto happening along with Winter Eclipse Season (2019/20 this coming December and January.

Our world is in turmoil now, and we are looking for signs of clarity and direction to light the path in front of us.

Impeachment inquiries are happening already, with more intense and dramatic moments ahead of us.

Remember it is the Military/Economic Empire that “rules the world” as major transformation to it is meant to happen.

So cracks in its foundation show themselves through difficulties with the economy, police, and military of the USA.

The Commander in Chief resides in his own little Walter Middy world, starring in his made up movie, where he is always right and heroic.

Unfortunately that “make believe” world clashes with the “real” and dangerous world all around us now.

Yet we know his presidency was meant to be, as we now see a new world developing that can give us hope.

That new world can take its first baby steps into the Age of Aquarius after the Presidential Election in November 2020.

In December 2020 Saturn makes exact conjunction with Jupiter at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, evidently symbolic of a New Age.

Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions bring us a 20 year cycle that is based on socio-cultural changes for that time period.

Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions can initiate extremely important time periods.

Every time there was a Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in the past, the USA president at the time died while still in office.

Check out Lincoln, FDR,  Kennedy, etc.

The “spell” broke in 1981 when Reagan was shot but lived through it. Jupiter/Saturn made conjunction in 1980/81.

Then Bush was president at the next Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Taurus in 2000/2001.  No death or almost death, but 9-11 happened during Bush’s first year in office.

So we can expect vitally important events after the next Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius on December 21, the day of the Winter Solstice.

So hang in there this approximate year before the Election and Jupiter/Saturn conjunction.

We need to clear up and clean out the old paradigm and its leaders.  If cleaning out that world and its leaders is not done with a sense of finality, we still remain, in our consciousness, in that old world. Fearing it or hating it keeps it alive.

It is what they represent that we are clearing out, so “we the people” can begin to take responsibility and stewardship of our world and lives.

The Age of Aquarius brings group consciousness to the forefront.  Kings, queens, dictators, emperors do not fit in. And the current USA president has man crushes on all the dictator/strong men of our world, like Putin.

He must be the reincarnation of King George, who was the ‘mentally touched” British king during the USA revolutionary war that paved the way for the new world of United States of America.

Maybe George is giving it another try.  He will lose again.

But more important is our return to our “better angel” values, and deep connecting with the values of the new paradigm of the Age of Aquarius.

“Skies” darken more this week for the old world energies and values. Let it go, especially inside your self.

The Scorpio New Moon on the 27th brings a coming out of more primal energies, and a letting go of Libra politeness and nicety.

This is good for sex and eating and bringing back previously suppressed passions.  But it is not so good at keeping the peace.  Scorpio does hold back sometimes, but when it opens back up can be ferocious.

This is usually a good time for processing deep seated concerns. If you keep it bottled up for too long, it hurts your body, and builds up more and more resentment.

Scorpio time is also a good time for purging most anything.  Keep in mind that some of these emotions may be filled with much venom. Jealousy, rage, betrayals, and other such emotions can be felt and expressed now.  Did I say sex can be great now too?

So this week brings us the beginning of the last quarter of the Moon’s phase on Monday the 21st.

Venus in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces that day also, which shows up as a woman in her sexual power, one who can also open into the many facets and faces of the Goddess.  Take in the mystery surrounding her presence.

Then the Sun goes into its month long stay in Scorpio, as we let in more darkness. Darkness can feel very safe sometimes, like being in a dark room alone or meditating into a deep space.

Then on Friday the 25th that same Scorpio Venus Goddess meets up in sextile with Pluto in Scorpio. The guardian of the underworld and Venus together can bring a deep understanding of how the current world and its leaders owe some karmic payments.

Then on Sunday the 27th is a New Moon in Scorpio. This New Moon brings us the intensity and passion we need now in order to lock into the focused energies we need.  Superficial play time is over.

Remember that Saturn and Pluto are headed for their powerful exact conjunction in January 2020, which will be a year to be long remembered.

Till next week,

Leo

Breaking the Chains and Astrology Forecast November 11-17.

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This past week was really intense for many.  Wednesday and Thursday brought a New Moon in Scorpio followed by the passage of Jupiter from Scorpio (where it had been for the last year) into Sagittarius (where it will be for the next year).

“Out with the old and in with the new” was a common theme, a theme which continues as one’s New Chapter of life is becoming more clear.

As Election Day was just before these important planetary passages, that fact plays into the Old Chapter/New Chapter theme.

Democrats took over the House of Representatives while Republicans kept dominance of the Senate.  And so now Democrats will have more power and will use that power to seriously counter the Trump presidency.

That shift in power will help define the New Chapter politically and culturally, as the so-called USA culture war goes to a whole new level.

And each of us is being “persuaded” to know more surely where we stand and what we believe.  It is more challenging now to keep a middle ground observation view between these two opposing forces,

And in many ways these two opposing cultural viewpoints are about the past and future, though most involved would likely not see it that way.

Conservative by definition is about keeping things as they have been, and Progressive by definition is about progress.

Much of what Trump and his followers want is “make America great again” which infers going back to the past.

So much is changing now in such a big way. Look at gender roles and expressions, as can be seen through transgender people and their rights.  Look at the growing influence of AI.   Some are seeing that robots will replace humans sexually, as sex robot brothels are opening up in the country.  New kinds of relationship are being explored with more people attracted to open relationships and poly-amorous relationships.

And some people are concerned that current minorities like African-Americans and Hispanics will before too long become the majority in the country, hence the fear of some white people.

And women are becoming more empowered than ever, which scares some who see old traditions and old religious gender roles dying. An accepted Patriarchy is seen to be passing away.

And underneath all this is a shift of power, as those who have long held power and privilege are losing it and know it.

In a healthier world we bring along with us some old ways and traditions, but we do not bring it back.  We move forward into a NEW world.

And the old privilege is certainly leaving our world, which is headed to greater fairness and equality.

And minorities will be in the majority before too long also.

And LGBTQ peoples will more and more be accepted in our new world, this is certain.

But other changes are up for discussion. Do we truly want robot sex brothels?  How far do we want to go with AI and robots in general.

And do we want to let go of traditional relationships and monogamy?  Do we want there to be choice in these matters? And are open relationships right for our world and society?

In a healthy culture there are kind and respectful discussions about matters like these, and some conservative ideas are taken with us as we progress into the future.  We decide together- No culture war!

But we all know that is not happening right now.  There is culture war.

There would not be a war if everyone rode this wave we are all experiencing, which cannot deny a changing world into a New Chapter and even bigger a New Age.

And then together we sort through that which is inevitable in this New Age, that which can be preserved from the old world, and that which is open to discussion.

Overall we are progressing into a world of Diversity Within Unity, equality and fairness, Love and Truth.  And as long as we stay true to those principles, all else will naturally form as it needs to.

So now as we pass the New Moon in Scorpio and get used to a full year of Jupiter in Sagittarius, we have begun to liberate ourselves from the parts of our individual lives that feel trapped and chained.

In essence, we are each free spirits that are adjusting to a world of matter and form.  This is how I believe we need to know life now.

From that view, we hold our spirits and souls in the highest regard, but also realize we came to this world of form for a reason, to actualize and manifest purpose.

We develop a healthy relationship between spirit and matter, and then this is the foundation for our personal and global transition into an Age of Aquarius.

This week,  we begin to open the wings of our spirits as we get used to Jupiter in Sagittarius.

For some this last week has been painful as the baggage from our old conditioning has weighed us and our wings down.  We need more work in resolving our past and releasing our old patterns and ways.

And of course as Venus stays in Retrograde, relationships are an important part of our transition. Old relationship patterns that do not serve our souls and lives are being transformed.

In some cases these relationships need to be released and let go of, as difficult as that may be.  Chains need to be broken now, hopefully through discussions between people, but if not unilateral breaking is necessary.

And at the end of this week Venus leaves Retrograde and goes back Direct. That happens on Friday November 16.

We then begin to get more clarity and direction about relationship, and we begin the process of needed change. Remember however, that Venus does not get back to the position it started its Retrograde movement at until December 17.

So clarity, direction, and needed changes in relationship may take some time longer for many.

Interestingly, on the same day as Venus goes Direct (Friday November 16), Mercury goes Retrograde.

Yes Mercury goes Retrograde this Friday November 16.   So confusion may be strong around this time.

Both Mercury and Venus are about relating. Mercury through the mind and Venus through the heart.

So mind and heart are seeking a new balance between one another. With Venus going Direct, our heart matter begin to clear up. But Mercury going Retrograde suggests our thinking and mental communications are readjusting.

As usual, Mercury Retrograde shifts our mental outlook, prompting us to be more reflective and “right-brained”.  We may also question what we have previously decided.

Additionally, people from our past may come back to us in our dreams, thoughts and in reality.  And this is just after Venus Retrograde may have done that with us.

Remember to let the process unfold without jumping to any fast conclusions. Mercury stays Retrograde until  December 6, when it goes back Direct again.

Much is in flux still, yet all is moving toward greater freedom from old programming, toward healthier relationships, and bigger steps into the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Wings begin to spread open and Astrology Forecast for November 4-10

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Big Energy shifts this week can be seen through planetary movement.

It is certainly synchronistic that an important Election Day happens this week as the important planetary movements play out.

Early this week we continue inward and yin-ward movement as we are going through a last quarter darkening Moon in the sky.

Darkening fears have been trying to take over our consciousness.  Inner demons have been looking for more attention.

But this week we get strong triggering of our more active, vital impulses.

The darkening Moon shifts on Wednesday into a New Moon in Scorpio at 11:02 AM EST.  The day before, Retrograde Uranus shifts from fixed earth Taurus back into bold active Aries. 

Then the night of the New Moon in Scorpio, that same Uranus in Aries makes an inconjunct (150 degrees) connection with Jupiter as Jupiter has a last gasp of its year long placement in Scorpio.

On the day after the New Moon in Scorpio, Jupiter shifts from Scorpio into Sagittarius.  It will stay there for about a year.

Those planetary configurations will bring to us energies of passion, excitement, enthusiasm, awakenings, and new beginnings.

And these energy shifts happen surrounding Election Day in the USA. It will be a very intense day with a New Moon in Scorpio and the other planetary shifts surrounding that day. The uglier side of humanity will be stronger.  Yet “our better angels” will also be hanging out with us that day.

Before the election, Trump has the power, as president, to create events that tend to make him and the Republican Party look good.  Keep an eye out for that.

And both parties will be selling us on how life will bring tragic disasters if we vote for the other party.

Much will shift and open up after this election, as can be seen by the planetary movements this week.

Especially important to look at is the movement of Jupiter out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius.  The last time it was in Sagittarius was from November 2006- December 2007.

What was your life like during that time period? What similarities are there to now?

Moving from Scorpio to Sagittarius, Jupiter goes from being “down under” to “places in the sky”.

Pluto, guardian of the underworld, is the ruling planet of Scorpio.  Jupiter (Zeus) is the supreme god of the highest realms.  Jupiter is the ruling planet of Sagittarius and loves to be in that sign as it is this coming year.

Jupiter expands whatever it touches, so when in Scorpio it seeks to expand its influence in the lower realms, like our lower chakras or our more instinctual impulses. It also opens up our ability to see deeper within for deeper insights. And it seeks to bring us more fully into our passions and shows us more clearly what gives us that passion.  Sometimes, however, more “ugly” emotions are expressed with Jupiter in Scorpio.

While is Sagittarius, Jupiter expands our enthusiasm, our desires for inspiration, our search for higher meaning and solutions, for having a big picture look at issues.  Jupiter in Sagittarius will tend to expand the influence of our upper chakras, most often our crown chakra which wants to connect with the “sky gods” of meaning and inspiration.

And very importantly, Jupiter in Sagittarius motivates many to leap into things, to take new adventures. Of course that can be very good, but leaping before one looks closely at the potential consequences of such impulsiveness (called spontaneity by those taking the leap) can bring disastrous results.

This potential impulsiveness may show itself in our world, which is very vulnerable to dangerous triggers now.

Jupiter in Sagittarius does everything big, sometimes “bigger then life” so to speak.

Issues heat up while Jupiter is in Scorpio, bringing so much pressure to keep everything from blowing up.

Sagittarius is a fire sign, a free spirited fire sign. As such Jupiter in Sagittarius is often the match that lights the wild fire of our expressions and actions.

So that which was bottled up in Scorpio will open up in Sagittarius.

This next year will also tend to bring you to that which inspires you and lifts your spirits.

Jupiter in Sagittarius often heightens our connections to our intuition and motivates us to act on those intuitions.  It is best to check out the surrounding facts and to question what we are intuitively drawn to do before acting.

In the greater world, ill advised military adventures are more likely this coming year. There is also a better chance of manic over reactions when Jupiter is in Sagittarius.

Those who have been severely depressed this past year will have a better chance of breaking through their “down” feelings this year.

Many others will shift from “glass half empty” to “glass half full” this year.

So on election day expect your passion for what is important to you to be ignited with the New Moon being in passionate, primal Scorpio.

Then the next day with Jupiter going into Sagittarius, you will want to be more unbridled to express and do what you want to do. Your need for freedom will be much stronger this year.

In the greater world, powerful events are quite likely this week, events that will bring turmoil and out of control possibilities.

This election will tend to open up Pandora’s box of previously “kept in-tact” emotions and actions.

This recently opened New Chapter of our individual and collective lives will be in full throttle after this week’s shifts and changes.

There is definitely no turning back now.  It is soon time to let our spirits fly more, to open things up, to see thing from the big picture view.

You can more easily take the “high road” now.  Commit to doing that and not letting anyone or anything take you down from that place now.

Yes everything will be more out of control this coming year, but also there is an breaking out of stuck places that occurs also. Tightness will be difficult to maintain, locks will not keep your spirit locked up anymore. Open up your wings and fly this coming year. Jupiter in Sagittarius will facilitate that movement.

Also commit to finding the higher meaning to everything, including the most painful events that have happened in your life.

Everything does happen for a reason, and this coming year with Jupiter in Sagittarius lead your life with the faith and trust that accompany the knowing of “all happens for a reason”.

Likely there is shift to the left that will happen at this election, which will tend to further ignite the cultural war in the USA.

No matter how this election turns out, however, we are moving inexorably toward an Age of Aquarius.

And when you get clear about your Self and your mission,  you will have much fire inside you to inspire you to follow your heart, with your head as close adviser.

It is time to get off the fence of distractions, and to fire up your internal engines for the activation and manifestation of your purpose here on Earth.

Till next week,

Leo

New Normal and Astrology Forecast November 26- December 2

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week begins with further progress in our transformational journeys, and then reaches a kind of climax and turning-point slow down at the end of the week. 

We enter the 2nd quarter of the Scorpio New Moon lunar cycle Sunday the 26th at the Moon in Pisces.

Next Stop is the energetic climax at the Full Moon in Gemini on December 3. The previous day we encounter a rewind of our mental processes as Mercury goes retrograde.

We have experienced strong winds of change in 2017, so we have been doing the inner work of transforming out of old patterns and beliefs.

Transformational change is never simply about outer world shifts. Yes we may be leaving an old job or an old home or an old relationship; but more important is what is going on deep in our souls.

In the past we attracted to ourselves situations, people, and challenges aligned with who we used to be at a very deep place in our minds and souls.

If we developed a belief about ourselves, deep inside, that told us we are not worthy or deserving, then as a result we attracted into our lives mirrors that show us how right we were to doubt ourselves.

Jobs, homes, families, and relationships have given us these negative mirrors based on those beliefs.  And then those personal beliefs are strengthened about our not being worthy or “enough”.  And then those beliefs attract more negative people and situations, which then again develop strengthening negative beliefs, and so on and so on.

These patterns continue until we awaken and realize that we have been running programmed negative inner recordings from our childhood, past relationships or situations, or even past lives.

That is when true transformation begins, the kind of deep transformation that can change our lives to be aligned with our true self, our “higher self”.

And at those times the transformational planets go to work to lead and guide our soul journey.

Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are those transformational planets; and they show up as transits to our natal planets every time there is true transformation as a distinct possibility.

The old self is a result of our being programmed to believe that we and our lives are limited and lacking, or conversely are privileged and have fairy tale results.

The handsome prince or castle or in the modern world privilege, wealth, celebrity and fame are the carrots that keep us chained to our ego selves.  We want to be with the “haves” and not with the “have-nots”.   This is Jupiter making the promise of grand reward if we play the “game” in the best way possible.

And Saturn is the “stick” of poverty or incarceration or illness or hell if we do not play the game right and follow the rules.

Jupiter and Saturn are also respectively considered good luck or bad luck.

But then in 1781 Uranus was discovered, then Neptune in 1846, and then Pluto in 1930.

They show us we can leave the old paradigm, the old beliefs, the old testament, the old contracts, the old age. They show us we are not limited by these old rules. They show us all dualities are connected in wholeness like a Yin-Yang sign.  They show us to our higher soul self in the lead and not our ego selves.  They show us we are on the road to the Age of Aquarius.

And now the transformational journey’s speed is accelerating as we get closer and closer to the true dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

The next big spike forward will be the next Eclipse Season January through March 2018.  It is the first follow-up to the powerful Eclipse Season last summer, which featured the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo that travelled right over the USA.

America is now very much in the process of dropping its Superpower status in order to re-integrate its true values and become an equal member of the world of nations,   a part of the Aquarian Age of Diversity within Unity.

Now this week we travel up tempo toward the Full Moon in Gemini Sunday December 3.

And just before that Full Moon, on the 2nd of December, Mercury goes Retrograde.

It will be time to stop and reconsider, to rewind into the past, to reflect on where we are and where we have been, to revise or even change our decisions or chosen direction.

But of course my usual advice is to wait till Mercury goes back Direct before making final decisions or changing directions.  This time it goes Direct on December 22, which is part of a turning point week with New Moon in Sagittarius and Winter Solstice.

But again this week we move up toward the Full Moon, while shifting gears into Mercury Retrograde late in the week.

Before those two events next weekend,  we experience a fiery blend of Venus going into Sagittarius and Mars opposing Uranus.  Desires for change or adventure increase.  Desire for breaking away from stuck places in your mind or life get stronger.  Rebellious or revolutionary energies are increasing.  The potential for surprise events in the world are greater than usual around this time.

It is now holiday season for many people on Earth.  The uplifting Sun in Sagittarius always accompanies holiday season for most of its run. And of course the Sun is now in Sagittarius until December 21 at the Winter Solstice when it goes into Capricorn..

As we come closer and closer to the next year of 2018, we look back at a year of new beginnings for great change.

The Trump administration has brought much motivation to many to stand up for change.  More and more people are waking up to acknowledging the sorry state of our conventional world and its old paradigm.

Trump is merely an exaggerated example of the leaders and movers and shakers of our old world.  The power abusers are being revealed. Old beliefs about how men and women should be are being challenged.

The fragility of our lives is being exposed as we feel the possibility of nuclear destruction more deeply than before.

We are reevaluating our priorities and transforming our beliefs and lives.  More and more people are committing to being authentic and at the same time being aligned with their higher soul self and the Universe ( God, Gods, Goddesses, Allah or whatever words you use for unity of all).

There is no going back to “normal” anymore.  We are in the chaotic, creative, transitional phase of developing a New Normal.

And there is a New You being developed at the same time.  And that New You also brings back soul parts of an Old You that was lost many years ago, perhaps in your childhood during traumatic events.

Your wholeness is the New You, as wholeness is the New World and Age.

All separate parts are honored and integrated in wholeness: Diversity within Unity for the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

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

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week
