Mercury Direct and Astrology Forecast April 30- May 6

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

One or the other of the two main relationship and communication planets have been retrograde since March 4.   This week when Mercury goes back Direct again, both will be back in their usual forward motion.

Mercury is a planet of mind and communication.  As many of you have experienced, when Mercury is retrograde we may readjust our thinking and perceptions, rethink the directions in life we have chosen, and rewind to previous times in our life.

Together, Venus and Mercury have been readjusting our relationships, making us more aware of what we say and how we say it, and perhaps even shifting our attitudes and beliefs around money and material resources.

Now with both of them back Direct, there is the beginning of gaining more clarity and direction in our thinking and with our relationships.

Some of you during this Retrograde period have been re-evaluating your relationships and chronic patterns in your relationships.  Some of you have experienced a crisis that has forced you to make serious changes in your relationships or relationship patterns.

This is not only about romantic relationships but also about platonic friendships, family and work relationships.

Do you tend to give your power away?  Are you now more commited to speaking your truth and not sacrificing and giving too much.

Relationships are meant to be give and take, with both people giving and receiving from one another.  If you are doing much more giving than receiving, it is like breathing out and not breathing in, metaphorically speaking.

These patterns of giving more than receiving can be seen in a natal chart, yet also are “inherited” from family conditioning,  programming into women from society,  and acting out of guilt from religion.

The more a person is centered in their heart while in relationship balance with their mind, the better able they are to have healthy give and take relationships.

Now with both Mercury and Venus back Direct, we can move forward with enough knowledge and information to know what to do with our relationships.

The actual day of Mercury Direct is Wednesday May 3 at 12:33 PM EDT.   It will then slowly get back to speed, so for a week or so after it goes back Direct clarity and direction will be unfolding.   You will be better at making decisions, and better prepared for initiating new projects.

Also this week on Monday May 1 there is Beltane, an ancient celebration of relationship, fertility, and relationship balance.   Moving around a maypole is an old tradition of Beltane.

Interestingly, it synchronizes this year with the recently Direct motion of Venus and Mercury now going back Direct.

Relationships on the global stage are shifting and changing also.  The USA connections with North Korea, China, Russia, and the Middle East are in the process of big change.

The way it will now shake out is very important to world peace or war.

People often ask how much influence our individual and collective intention and prayer have on world affairs.

There is a thin line between what is meant to be and what we can create through our human consciousness and actions. This is what co-creation is all about.

It is worth our time and effort to focus our loving energies toward world affairs.  Even if we are not able to shift the direction the world is moving toward, putting more love in the world will always work toward making our human experience better and better.

No matter what happens, we are in the process of deep transformation of our consciousness and lives on the way to an Age of Aquarius.

The transition time between an Age of Pisces and an Age of Aquarius is powerful.  Yes there are birth pains that will show through difficult world events and challenging personal life events, but there will also be more and more awakenings, more portals opening for greater love and truth, and more magic and synchronicity.

There is a pull toward staying in old consciousness that will be helped if you give into fear or rage.  There is also more inspiration to move into new consciousness as you trust in love balanced with truth, trust the Universe, and trust in the wisdom of your own soul and body.

The movement toward the Age of Aquarius is getting stronger and stronger, even as Rome is burning, so to speak.

I believe that December 2020 will be an important marker for the official dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

In the meantime, we will be experiencing a most intense and tumultuous part of the transition between ages.

This August 2017 will bring a major turning point in our collective Soul’s journey into the New Age.

There will then be two eclipses, the second one most important and powerful.  It is a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo, covering the whole of the United States. It triggers planets in the natal charts of Donald Trump, the USA, Syria, Israel, and North Korea.

I am sure we will all be challenged to stay on our paths toward more love and truth in our lives.  The pull toward fear and old attitudes and beliefs will be strong.   So we will need to keep our focus, our center, and our alignment with the Universe.

The current lunar cycle, begun at the New Moon in Taurus, is still waxing toward a Full Moon, which will be on May 10 in Scorpio.

So now, especially after Mercury goes Direct on May 3, we are getting more clear in our minds and hearts and directed to moving forward with our lives.

Be attentive to the fact that often the time surrounding Mercury changing directions can feel strange while at the same time feeling a sense of relief.

Till next week,

Leo

Love and Truth and Astrology Forecast April 23- 29

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 22, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving through the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the Aries New Moon on March 27.

Important events that could lead to more explosive events erupted during this Aries lunar cycle.

Russia, Iran, North Korea, United States, Syria, and Israel are all very triggered by these recent events.  Actually the whole world may be affected ultimately by these events.

So during the 4th quarter we review what has happened during the Aries lunar cycle, and get ready for new beginnings at the New Moon in Taurus this Wednesday April 26.

What has opened up for you personally since March 27?   What are you needing to move into more fully, or move on from? What still needs to be healed and transformed?

Mercury is still Retrograde and Venus was Retrograde during much of this lunar cycle, till April 15 when Venus went back Direct.

What has been happening in your important relationships?  Have you been taken back to old patterns you thought you had moved beyond.

Do you now have more clarity about those relationships?

If not keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde until May 3, when it goes back Direct. Total clarity may have to wait until then or more likely a week or so after it goes back direct.

Big decisions that will importantly affect your life would be better off waiting until then.

More pull to “how it used to be” may continue for you.  Do your best to resist feeling your old reality is your reality again.

You may be revisiting old places in your Old Chapter of life, so you can better know what your New Chapter needs are.

There is a process of integration of the past going on, so you do not forget “where you came from”.

There will be a feeling of moving forward more at the New Moon in Taurus on April 26 at 8:16 AM EDT.

Taurus takes in, manifests in reality, and then holds onto tightly.

So whatever was begun during the Aries lunar cycle will tend to take hold after the Taurus New Moon.   If that which began in the Aries cycle has no real “life” to it, it will not take hold.  It will not be made manifest.

Looking at the recent world events, look closely at what has unfolded from them, especially after the New Moon on the 26, and even more so after Mercury goes Direct on May 3.

Are those events merely the past coming back for a look-see again, or are those events more indicative of what is truly brewing in our world.

Taurus is fixed Earth and when it grabs something it does not let go.

So if you have started something recently, if it is aligned and alive, the Taurus New Moon will tend to make it more real and grounded.

Taurus likes to make things more secure and comfortable.  That is why money and other resources like real estate are under the umbrella of Taurus.

Taurus is the Earth and our earthly bodies.   It wants to let us know that our bodies can be a pleasurable experience, and it does so in part by enlivening our senses.

Tasty and healthy food therefore is important for Taurus as a result.

During Taurus time we also can usually calm down from the fiery energy of Aries. Everything seeks to slow down and relax.   But you may then feel rather bored if you seek a lot of passion and intensity.

Those recent world events that brought conflict will now either calm down appreciably or be made more real and manifest.

This summer, especially near the August Eclipses, we will experience the fallout from some of the recent events.

We are truly in a new zone now and sometimes you will feel confused or “out of sorts” and unbalanced.

Your body may go through some temporary shifts too,  shifts that feel like you might be sick or that something might be wrong with you.

Let whatever it is play out to see if it stays or not. In most cases it will be temporary, as we are all being shifted in our minds, souls, and bodies by new energies.

Stay open and present as much as you can now.  Realize old wounds and traumas may tend to be triggered, so please do your best to not be carried away by overreacting.

These new energies want to move into you, and when they confront the blocks in your system, the ones that developed from your old wounds and traumas, they may trigger old reactions.

Remember that these old traumas can be transformed.  You can then see that what has happened to you in the past can be a motivation to empower yourself, to improve yourself, and to have empathy for others who have suffered.

You may have been victimized but you are not a victim.  Victim consciousness disempowers people and is part of the old age, not the new age.

Everything that has happened in your life is meaningful and meant to help you to transform and evolve, and to potentially assist others who have been suffering.

The more explosive world events that are coming are part of the process too, as Nature has earthquakes and tornadoes and tsunamis.

Life will go on, and an Age of Aquarius in dawning.  The transition will be better if each of us stays aligned and lives their life according to the nature of the Universe.

Love and Truth are the pillars that hold up the divine realms of the Universe.  Allowing them to be an integral part of our Earthly life paradigm and the Age of Aquarius is quite important now and going forward.

Each of us can make strong intention to let those values be the engine of our life, not materialism, greed, or power.

Please take a look at the video David Lonebear Sanipass and I created recently- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W2WIRHQ5IQ

Till next week,

Leo

Waiting in Transition and Astrology Forecast May 8-14

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 7, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in a holding pattern now, waiting for the call to move forward.  Mars and Mercury are Retrograde: Mercury till May 22 and Mars till June 29.

As we just passed through a New Moon in Taurus while all this Retrograde business is going on, we need to be in “get moving” mode even if you do not know where to go.

So get things done around the house, get your finances in order, run errands, clean up the old both physically and mentally/emotionally.

Taurus is a grounded, practical sign; but it is also a sign that appreciates the body and Earth.  It sees much of life through its senses, smelling and touching and tasting.  It loves to enjoy its body through comfort also, so spas and hammocks work well for them.

Since it is “Taurus time” for all of us now, it is a good time for each of us to do what Taurus likes and needs to do.

Since we gotta wait before moving more fully into the new era of our lives, it is good now to keep busy; but it is even more important to do inner work.

It is time with Mercury and Mars retrograde, to feel your past, to do some healing, to release and let go what represents the old era of your life.

It will behoove you to do this inner work, as you do not need baggage from the past as you move into the new era of your life.

Of course one cannot totally remove what one has been traumatized or hurt by in one’s past; but now at the Retrogrades and while you are in transition between eras, the winds of the Universe are at your back for inner healing and release.

In the greater world things have also slowed down, with no big events to speak of.

Politically in the USA the movement for electing President is slowing down as it is more obvious who the candidates will be.

But we do not know for sure who will win or what the process to get there will be like.

Our movement forward is on hold now with conversation about who will support Trump, with questions about Clinton’s troubles with her emails, with unknowns about how Sanders and his values will fit into the democratic platform at the convention.

But much more important than the personalities is what each candidate represents for our world, what direction America is moving toward.

Who wins the Presidency will show us loud and clear who we are now and what we value.

And now during the Retrograde, without the distraction of important primaries anymore, we will be able to truly get to know who the candidates are and what they represent.

On the surface Trump is a wealthy brash celebrity.  What else does he represent on a more substantial level?

Clinton is a woman and part of the Clinton political royalty, but what does she represent on a deeper more substantial level?

With Sanders it is more obvious what he represents on a substantial level. He has been loud and clear for many years.

So we are all processing the primary season we have just gone though- 17 republican candidates later- 3 Democratic candidates later.

We can sit back and wait for the party conventions, which occur in July- after Mars goes direct.

And for all of us July is the time of getting our life automobiles started up again for a drive into the new era of our lives.

This does not mean that personal and global events will stop until July.  The personal events over the next couple months, while the retrogrades continue, will help us to further release old mental tapes, old traumas and hurts, old patterns of Self denial and co-dependency.

The events that happen over the next couple of months will also help us to see more clearly our new era of life, to help us to embrace or at least accept our new life energies.

Remember that most important is how we are shifting energetically, because our energetic shifting will determine what and who we will attact into our lives.

It is  good time now to stay very present with our selves and our interactions with others. Watch and feel what is shifting inside.  You are changing at a deep cellular level, changing to be aligned with the energies of the Age of Aquarius that we are on the cusp of.

Everything has been accelerated and intensified, so we can do the inner work necessary to change our vibrations and lives.

Transition between worlds is not easy, in fact it can be quite painful at times, especially so when faced with old traumas and wounds. But the new birth can feel so good, so inspiring and heartfelt.

In the global world transition during this current Retrograde period, look for signs and symbols to tell you where things are headed now.

Look closely at Syria and Iraq, North Korea, Israel and Palestine, China and Japan.

Look more closely at the economy and stock market for signs and symbols of change.

It is the military/economic complex that hold up our old world.  There will be bigger and bigger cracks in its structure if we are to experience the kind of transformation necessary to bring the birth of the Age of Aquarius.

So even if some of the world events make you feel very insecure, remember that just like in your personal transformation, there is a need to face old energies and emotions, beliefs, and perceptions that need to be released.

The transitions can be painful and scary at times, but necessary in the process of positive Transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

Til next week,

Leo

While Mercury is retrograde, I am considering changing the webinar dates from beginning June 4 to beginning August 6- just considering. Many have shown interest in the webinar series.Please give me your feedback for dates.  It is greatly needed. And for those of you who have given deposit already, your input is most important.  Here is what the webinar will continue to be:

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday June 4 at 1 PM  EDT.  At this point I am leaning toward Saturdays June 18 and June 25 at 1 PM to finish up the series. The second and third dates are not set in stone yet.   Each class will last approximately 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.
I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world evetns will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is to be paid prior to the classes.
Audio recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.

 

 

 

Retrogrades and Beltane and Astrology Forecast May 1-7

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on April 30, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

With Mars and Mercury Retrograde, it is time to chill, with no dramatic needs to move forward or do anything big.

We have certainly entered a New Era of human life on Earth, and this new era will deliver us into the Age Of Aquarius in 2020/21.

In the meantime we are shedding old skins of attachment to an old paradigm and age that is energetically dissolving.

And now as we sit in this new phase of our lives, the temptation is to try to figure out exactly what is going on and to act to move things forward.

But with the retrograde planets, it is best to take time to process and heal, and to enjoy the moment without agenda, complication, or much stress.

Meditation and enjoying nature are good things to do now, as we wait for “further instruction” from spirit.   Sun in Taurus will help us to do just that.

With Mars Retrograde, we are on a deep level trying to ascertain what we truly want from a Higher Self perspective.   Where are we headed in our lives, what gives us passion and purpose?

With Mercury Retrograde, we are going deeper inside to know what we truly believe, to know what is true for us.

With  both these planets retrograde together,  we know we must stay processing- not acting out or coming to conclusions.

You will likely have “aha” moments during the retrograde period, but do your best not to have those “aha” moments bring you to change course or to make big decisions.

Wait until Mercury is Direct on May 22 before deciding; wait unti Mars goes Direct on June 29 before taking big actions forward.

Often when Mercury is Retrograde we question our path and paradigm, but it is best to wait for it to go direct before deciding once and for all what to do.

Often when Mars is Retrograde, we are tempted to do something impulsively, to take premature action, to change the direction of our path; but it is best to wait until it goes back Direct before taking any real actions.

Fitting the same theme of inaction, we are in a last quarter Moon phase until Friday May 6 when there is a New Moon in Taurus. That New Moon in Taurus is at 3:30 PM EDT>

Until then stay under the radar, and allow your consciousness to go wherever it wants to go naturally.   Stay attuned to your heart now more than your head, and from there you are getting more in touch with your true nature and desires.

Allow your self to be in your feelings and to process what has been happening over the last several weeks.   That processing puts you in the arms of your soul, a prerequisite for moving forward later.   The heart and soul are not abour “bottom line” or goals.

They instead seek deep connections and heartfelt living in the moment.

So best now to not stress about what you need to do to get your life working the way you want it to. It is better to trust now your Higher Self and the Universe to guide you at just the right time.

At the New Moon in Taurus you will feel some spark, but it is in Taurus so the spark is not that fiery.  Taurus is fixed earth, and as such it moves quite lowly if at all sometimes.

So it is best at and after the New Moon in Taurus to enjoy your body and its senses, eat good food, smell the ocean, touch soft skin, listen to music.  Nature is a great place to be during Taurus time, as is your home or anywhere and with anyone who makes you feel comfortable and safe.

Taurus is slo-mo movement, which is aligned with the non action of the retrograde planets.

This does not mean you have to just sit around and do nothing.  You can still work around the house, run errands, visit friends, etc. Just take it slow, no stress, no worries about how all is going to turn out.

Early this week there is a sacred turning point of nature.   It is Beltane on May 1, which is approximately half way between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice.

It is celebrated with Maypoles and symbolizes the fertility at this time of year and a balance between naturally opposite energies. It is a spring festival in many places around the world.

That May 1 date is also celebrated as May Day, a day of revolution for the International Workers of the World. It has been a day for socialists.

Speaking of socialists, Bernie Sanders has fallen behind Hilary Clinton.  Do you remember when I made some predictions at the beginning of the primary process?

My formula determined that Trump would be the Republican candidate, but it was so close between Clinton and Sanders. But I gave Sanders the edge.   The email scandal is still an issue for Clinton, and could still turn the tide toward Sanders.

There will soon enough be great events of world change again.  These events will open the doorways even more to the Age of Aquarius.

All we have to do is work on our consciousness and inner worlds.  We can be the change we want to see in the world.  We each become a model for the Age of Aquarius.

Do your best to stay away from people or energies that do not resonate with this authentic Self you are developing.

Till next week,

Leo

Times Are Changing and Astrology Forecast May 17-23

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 16, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week brings changing planetary patterns that will shift the energy field for us.

Last week was difficult for many during the last quarter Moon phase, as the Moon wanes and then goes dark.

Many people felt down and felt like their lives were stuck and not moving forward.

The lunar cycle is often compared to a woman’s cycle as they are both around 28-29 days in length.  The time before her New Moon, so to speak,  can also be rather difficult at times.

On Sunday night May 17, overnight into Monday the 18th, there will be an end to the last quarter darkness- at the New Moon.

There will be a New Moon in Taurus at 12:13 AM EDT May 18.   In reality the darkness does not truly end right at the New Moon.   The Moon will not usually show a lighted sliver until the second night after the New Moon.

So either on Monday the 18th or Tuesday the 19th we will see some light again.

Of course some people are more sensitive to lunar phases than others.  But nevertheless, it is a great time generally speaking to meditate and make intention during the dark Moon.

That period will likely be Saturday through Monday.  Being in the “void” of your consciousness is a positive and aligned way to experience the dark Moon, and in fact a good way to experience much of the last quarter Moon phase.

This New Moon will continue themes that have already begun since the Sun moved into Taurus on April 20.

At a New Moon, the Moon joins the Sun in conjunction.  In this case the Moon and Sun will join together at almost 27 degrees of Taurus.

Taurus themes get even stronger, so body and physical issues predominate.  Nature, home, physical resources like land and money are important.  That which was initiated recently can be felt at a more “grounded” level, and the more practical understandings will be emphasized.

To go along with the more earthy energies of Taurus, there will be a more mental focus as Mercury goes Retrograde several hours later on Monday the 18th.

Mercury goes Retrograde in mentally fast paced Gemini at 9:49 PM that night.  So from then until June 11, when it goes back direct, our mental perceptions will be shifting to rewind, remember, reflect, rewire, reintegrate, and realign.

It is usually not a good time to make major decisions or sign important contracts as so much is shifting mentally during Mercury Retrograde.

Communication issues can also be brought into the spotlight during Mercury Retrograde, which sometimes includes usually minor problems with communication equipment or devices.

People or memories from the past often come back into lives either through dream or waking memories during Mercury Retrograde. Yet also sometimes people from our past will actually “in the flesh” be seen again. We need during these times of revisiting to remember past times and to reintegrate that which we have put aside in our consciousness and life.

During Mercury Retrograde we often are forced to rethink some decision or direction we have previously chosen for our lives.  If this happens, it is best if at all possible to wait until after Mercury goes back Direct before making an absolute decision to change directions.

In the greater world, watch for people to begin to change their minds about previously decided issues.  Watch to see if the potential nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers will be reconsidered and maybe even fall apart.  Other world issues may suddenly also shift direction because new events will change and alter the previous perspective.

To add to these planetary changing winds, we will also experience this week the Sun moving into Gemini as well as Venus in Cancer triggering the Uranus/Pluto square, which is still very much in effect.

The Uranus/Pluto square will not be exact again, but nevertheless they will stay closely square for several more months.  So you can expect much more transformational change in our personal and global lives.

As Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto on Thursday May 21, our emotions and relationships will likely be more volatile than usual.   There is potential, however, for breakthroughs and healings as well this week and into next week.

The Sun goes into Gemini on May 21 also, so there will be more motivation to vary your interests, to take classes, to be more social, to be more in your head.  The nervous system also speeds up with the Sun in Gemini.

There still is much world change ahead as we move toward the eclipses late Summer and Autumn.

And before that important Eclipse Season, there will be a big turning point for world events in late July and early August.

The natal charts of the USA and Israel will be triggered then and throughout the rest of the year.   The Cardinal Grand Cross of 2014, when the USA natal Sun and Saturn were closely impacted, is being affected by Pluto’s movement this year.

There is still much transformation ahead for the USA as we move toward a more equal status with peoples all over the Earth global community.  Diversity in Unity is forming at a “cellular” level now, to be manifested in reality in the 2020s.

There is danger before that, however, of more militarily hawkish leaders to take over governments, including our own.  President Obama, though not as peaceful as his Nobel Prize suggests, is at least showing the way to more peace and equality with the Iran peace process, inclusion of Cuba, and moves away from Israel’s domination of our foreign policy and of the Palestinians.

And Pope Francis is another breath of fresh air as he has gone further then any Pope in my memory for freedom for Palestinians, concern for people who suffer, and even some empathy for the LGBT community.

He and President Obama have crossed old lines of limitation that were created by a wealthy and corrupt Vatican and a dominating Military/Industrial complex.   I believe they have both taken chances with their lives in the process.  They may be a model for others to follow even after they are gone from the world stage, as there are more difficult times ahead.

In America, almost all of the Presidential candidates in both parties are very militaristic and beholden to special interest money.

And a look at the world shows there is much movement in Europe, Russia and elsewhere toward more nationalism. Europe is having immigration challenges and economic challenges and hence turning much more to the “right”.

Nationalism always rears its ugly head before major conflicts in the world, but no matter what happens in the short term, there are plenty of signs the overall movement is toward a healthier, more inclusive and equal world community.

People are waking up all over the world, especially so our young people.

I saw a young woman on TV challenging Jeb Bush about Iraq.  She was confident and strong in telling him his brother Bush invaded Iraq without cause and that that was the reason for the birth of ISIS.

There is a revolution building, even as there is a movement toward protecting the systems of the world that oppress so many people.

Uranus/Pluto is symbolic of this revolutionary and evolutionary movement, just as it was in the ’60s.

The “Times They are a Changin” again, so get used to leaving old comfort zones.  There is no going back to the old normal.  Get used to people, especially young people who will be making gender and sexual roles more fuzzy than ever.

Consciousness changes are necessary if the world is to change.

If you were a member of the ’60s and ’70s transformational times or even those who were born somewhat afterward, remember where you came from.

As you see your kids with tattoos or sexual identity issues or anger toward our world and its governments and corporations re-member.  Remember how your parents were.  You may try to convince yourself that this is different, but in essence it is the same.

Young people are beginning to stand up strong again and are fed up with how this world runs.  Revolution and evolution are growing energies again. The young people now will make their changes in their way, not the same way we did when we were younger.

Guide those children, but do not judge or dominate.  You will lose them.

We need each other in our journey toward an Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Spiritual Soul Journey and Astrology Forecast May 10-16.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

till next week,

Leo

I AM ALL and Astrology Forecast April 22-28

Early today we passed through a New Moon in Taurus.   Mars went Direct over a week ago, but had been moving very slowly forward.  It is now near normal speed, and with the New Moon beginning a new lunar cycle, we are ready to engage life more fully.

And some may even feel as if the Eclipse Season has begun. For them the winds of change are already blowing in.

Gemini and Sagittarius are the approaching signs of the Eclipse Season, so mental, communicative, and spirited channels will want to open up.  Though Taurus energies aim to keep us grounded for now, the vast possibilities that Gemini and Sagittarius represent are bulging at the seams, getting ready to explode into our lives, consciousness, and world.

Do you already know what action and events are coming into your life in May, June, and July?  It is likely even more important and life altering than you know.

Are you still waiting to know?  Are you still searching for clarity and direction?  That is OK, as it has not been that long yet since Mars has gone directSome may not know yet what they really want or what they want to do or where they want to go.    Some may not know until after Mars has reached the same place that it went retrograde, 23 degrees of Virgo. It will get back to that place on June 19, just after the eclipses and just before the Summer Solstice and powerful Uranus square Pluto aspect.

The most valuable stance to take now is one of flexibility and trust.   Try not to control too much or to believe you know all the answers.   Life is going to open up in a big way soon, and if we can each be open to the possibilities, not the eventual outcome, we will be in the best place inside ourselves.

This is because much will be shifting and shaking up, as we are moving into a highly transformational period of our collective lives.

Leaders of the world are and will be trying hard to keep the status quo, to keep stability, to keep us believing that the old paradigm of predictable results will be maintained.    Remember that the greater world’s god is the economy.  Keeping it stable and predictable is what keeps the world as we know it now intact.  That is one reason why so-called rogue nations like North Korea and Iran cannot be tolerated, why Iraq and Saddam Hussein could not be tolerated.

It is because they represent forces that will not be controlled by the current powers of the world, and their “instability,” rebellion, and unpredictablity are seen as threatening to the staus quo of the world and its economy.

And of course oil, which is from fossils of our past sunk deep into the Earth, is a prime resource that is tied into the global economy and chances for global war.  And Iran is now in the crosshairs of the current powers of the world, as it controls much oil and can potentially control the passage of much oil supply through the Straits of Hormuz, adjacent to its borders.

This fossil fuel is so tied to our human past, and to the old paradigm of survival of the fittest that our creature natures resonate to.   But our divine nature resonates better to unity and cooperation.

So now the solution is found in a merging of the two faces of humanity: creature and divine. That integration gives us our next step in evolution.

Our survival creature nature knows its survival now is dependent on its ability to find unity as one family together all over the Earth.  The weapons of mass destruction we have built, in combination with a continued sense of separation from our fellow human being, Earth and other creatures, guarantees an eventual bad ending to our existence on Earth.    The fossils from the extinct creatures of Earth remind us that we must change our ways and evolve.

And evolution now is the combining of our divine knowing of Unity with our creature instinct of survival urgency.

We must band together all over the Earth as one unified family in order to survive now.    The Aquarian Age we are on the cusp of is about Diversity in Unity, so an acceptance and sense of Unity of all God’s and Goddesss’ creatures, races, genders, creeds and sexual orientations will show us the way.

And the challenges coming our way will help us to let go of the old beliefs, paradigm, and age.  Some of what is coming will not be pretty and in fact could be quite chaotic and destructive; but it is what will be necessary to break open and break down the walls of Rome, which suffocate the free wills, minds, souls and hearts of life.

So use the coming eclipses to break down the walls in your life and heart that keep you from your authentic self, and keep you from connecting with the fresh spiritual air of the Universe and its signs, symbols, synchronicities and connections.

The coming times will be the best of times and the worst of times all at the same time.  We open more to all it is to be human, both dark and light.

It is NOT our natural plight to fight the dark forces and kill the enemy.  It is our natural movement now, in conjunction with our evolution into an Aquarian Age to be whole and integrated, dark and light, yin and yang, male and female, all together as one.

The “enemies” are inside us, they are our shadows, shadows that seek to be known and seen, healed and transformed, integrated into the Oneness of  each of us, each of us who is a micro cell in the macro Universe:  I AM ALL.

See you next week,

Leo
