It is Time and Astrology Forecast May 5-11

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 4, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The weekend of May 4-5 brings a mixed bag of energy shifts.

The New Moon in Taurus is at 6:45 PM EDT. Saturday May 4.  An important configuration between Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto is exact on May 5.

Taurus is fixed earth, and as such requires situations to feel solid, comfortable, and secure.  Physical resources like homes, land, money, assets, and a bull (a symbol of the sign Taurus) stock market fit the bill for Taurus.

Taurus also makes manifest what was before just a motivation or desire.

So whatever you have been motivated to do, especially since around the New Moon in Aries on on April 5, you can now attempt to make real.

Mars opposes Jupiter on May 5, and while they do that, they are making aspects to Pluto in Capricorn.

This plays out with Jupiter at 23+ degrees of Sagittarius, Mars at 23+ degrees of Gemini, and Pluto at 23+ of Capricorn.  Mars/jupiter form the most important opposition to one another, as Mars/Pluto form a quincunx (150 degree aspect), while Jupiter/Pluto form a semi-sextile (30 degree aspect).

This is a very volatile combination of planetary energies, and impulsive actions can result from this configuration.  It can be good for being spontaneous, but what is the line between spontaneous and impulsive?

The United States natal Mars is at 21+ degrees of Gemini, and Donald Trump’s Sun is at 22+ degrees of Gemini, and his natal Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is at 21+ degrees of Sagittarius.

As I write this blog, I see North Korea today just tested some weapons, which was apparently against previous agreements; Gaza and Israel just began a new round of violence with one another; and the USA is talking about military action being “on the table” as an option against Venezuela.

So there are multiple dangers for impulsiveness in those issues.

At the least, we are getting clear warning signals from the Universe about dangerous possibilities facing our human family during its transition between an old and new era of our human experience here on Earth.

We, however, need our concentration on our own expansion of consciousness, and the transformation of our beliefs and lives aligned with our best values and with the values of the Age of Aquarius.

The Mars/Jupiter opposition, along with the New Moon in Taurus, can assist us to manifest what we have put off or were not previously ready for.

The Taurus New Moon gives us the desire and ability to start projects that will help us to make real what was previously only a desire or idea.

And the Mars/Jupiter/Pluto formation gives us inspiration, desires to act and expand, and the ability to move through the death and rebirth cycle of transformation.

It is very important, however, to not be impulsive, and to be able to distinguish between spontaneous and impulsive. Spontaneous suggests living in the moment and naturally responding to what is presented to us. Impulsive suggests doing something disconnected from natural alignments and interactions.

Jupiter stays relatively close to opposing the USA natal Mars for most of the next 7 months, so these military adventures will continue to be possible.  Potential breakthroughs from old military aggression patterns are also possible with this planetary movement.

Events, personally and in outer world, may come suddenly the next few days of May 4- May 10. Venus makes exact aspect to Pluto and Jupiter on Thursday the 9th, triggering the formation from this weekend.

And since Venus also squares Saturn on Tuesday May 7, there are relationship issues to go through also.  This can mean relationship challenges, but also new insights and breakthroughs in relationship possible too.

On Monday May 6 Mercury leaves Aries for Taurus, where it will stay until May 21.

Mercury in Taurus is more methodical in one’s thinking than is Mercury in Aries, who is more shoot from the hip. They will both stubbornly stick to their opinion, but Mercury in Aries is more bold and challenging than is Mercury in Taurus, which is more cautious.

Mercury in Taurus thinks things through more, and is more practical.

On May 8, however, Uranus joins Mercury in conjunction in Taurus, so minds may be ready to leave caution to the wind, as one may be awakened to a new way to look at something.

We are now less than 2 months away from Summer Eclipse Season 2019; and we are less than 8 months away from the very important and powerful Eclipse Season of Winter 2020.

So much is wanting to change in the world now, and in our personal lives. Sometimes now it is so difficult to make definite plans or to choose definite direction, as life seems so much up in the air, so to speak, waiting for something to happen.

I feel pretty sure that said event or events will happen in 2019/2020, a time of much turmoil.  Chaos will be in conflict with Order, both vying for dominance.

As new ways of being on this Earth open up more and more, attempts to dominate and control will also get stronger and stronger.

This is the usual battle between progressive and conservative, yet I have never seen the divide so wide. I have never seen each side so clearly divorced from the other side, and so passionately emotional and hateful.

Communists or socialists versus conservatives or fascists was an important pattern in the 20th century, leading in large degree to the world wars and also cold war between USA and the Soviet Union.

Now that is forming again as ultra right nationalists are against a new breed of progressive socialists or globalists. And there is little thread of connection between these oppositions now.

The balance sought is like the yin-yang symbol of opposites held in union with one another.

Yet when big change or leaps of progress or evolution are coming in fast, as they are now, the force of conservative demands for law and order tend to strengthen also.

And through it all, we know we are moving fast now toward alignment with the Age of Aquarius and its new consciousness and paradigm.

The ultra conservative viewpoint wants to dominate and control this movement, and stop it from happening.

A healthy amount of conservatism can slow things down enough to make a more graceful movement forward. The world is not capable of that now, but each of us hopefully is.

Nothing can stop the progress now, but the hatred toward those “on the other side” makes this process more ugly and dangerous.

Some ultra conservative white nationalists who show such hatred toward those who are different make conservative look bad, but all conservatives are not that way.

Ultra left wing liberals who believe that anything goes without any rules or moral values make liberal look bad, but most liberals are not that way.

Yes we are moving into even greater and more powerful transformational change now, and IT IS TIME.

Till next week,

Leo

Before the Storms and Astrology Forecast April 28- May 4

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on April 27, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move through the last quarter of the current lunar cycle, one that began at the Aries New Moon on April 5.

Aries New Moons signify new beginnings and start-ups. It is the time of early Spring in the Northern Hemisphere on Earth.

When the Sun moves into Aries, that signifies the first moment of Spring season at Spring Equinox, which lets us know buds are soon ready to push through branches of the trees, and flowers are getting ready to burst into bloom.

Yet we do not really enter new beginnings until the Moon catches up with the Sun to form a New Moon.

That last New Moon in Aries on April 5 started a new lunar cycle signifying new beginnings (as usual at a New Moon in Aries), but this time Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn formed a hard square to that New Moon in Aries.  That strongly suggested difficulties or blocks in the way of those new beginnings.

A day before the Libra Full Moon”climax” of that lunar cycle of April 19, the Mueller report came out and was given exclusively to the USA Attorney General who works for the President.

He held onto that report for awhile, and then he crossed out (redacted) a significant portion of that report. So the citizens of the country, who are supposed to be the stewards of that country, are not informed of much that is in the report.  In other words the full contents of that report did not go public.

Now as we move through the last quarter segment of the lunar cycle this week, we await full disclosure of the contents of that Mueller Report.

The New Moon is on Saturday May 4 at 6:45 PM EDT. It is a Taurus New Moon.

The sign Taurus in a fixed earth sign. It signifies true solidity and manifestation.

Aries “gets the ball rolling”, and directs the initial fires from the New Moon in Aries. Aries is a cardinal fire sign.

So after the Aries New Moon start up, the Taurus lunar cycle that follows grabs hold of what was begun by Aries, and then forms and shapes it.  Taurus then is motivated to hold on and make things as permanent as possible at the time.

So now whatever was started in the fires of April, is wanting to be made manifest, real, and as practical as possible.

Last week “god of the underworld” Pluto changed directions from Direct to Retrograde; and in the process made its intensity and passion quite evident.

This week, on Monday April 29, Saturn also changes from Direct to Retrograde.

The energy to be felt from Saturn contracts what it touches and is very grounding as it is the ruling planet of gravity.

And that is how it manifests sometimes, as we may feel more serious and grave as it turns.

A grave in fact is one form of Saturn, as it represents parts of life that cannot be escaped. In that context, it represents boundaries, endings, deaths, but also commitments, building and organizing, discipline, goals and accomplishments.

It is a stern teacher sometimes, a taskmaster.  It also is the hand of time, and as such represents fate, something meant to be.

As Saturn slows down to go retrograde, Pluto is still moving very slowly after it just went retrograde last week.

So both Pluto and Saturn are “in the air”, which can make things feel dark and dire.

Don’t know about you, but often lately I feel like life is being put on hold now until some big event is made manifest.

Saturn and Pluto show us powerful endings, endings that promise deep transformation and a Phoenix Rising from the ashes of the death of the old season of our lives.  (I am still planning a new class on Saturn/Pluto in late spring or early summer. For more info contact me at soulus@aol.com.  My recent video and podcast (see below) include talking about that Saturn/Pluto conjunction, which will be exact on January 11 2020).

On January 10, the day before that powerful conjunction, is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn/Cancer, making extremely close contact with that Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn the next day.  This represents a monumental turning point in our lives.

The bombing of so many churches, hotels, etc and killings of so many people in Sri Lanka, show us the horrible religious and culture wars playing out in our world.

In large part, the transition between Ages we find ourselves in,  is meant to take us away from a world and paradigm that are about “every man for himself”, in a survival of the fittest world.

Survival now is dependent on our collective consciousness evolving into a knowing of our connections, a knowing we are interdependent with one another, members of the same human family on Planet Earth.

The horrible weapons of mass destruction are an integral outgrowth of the old paradigm of dog eat dog survival of the fittest.

Those who are the fittest now have been awakened to know the connections, to know that all the dots of the stars and planets in the Universe are connected.

We can then see the meaning of our lives in this world, and we can more consciously dance with the music of the spheres of this Universe.

The old paradigm has us all separate from one another, or else all wearing the same “uniform” in order to make unity.

We do not need to make unity. It is already made. All we need to do is align with it, be involved with it, immerse ourselves in it.

Separation transforms into a more positive distinct sense of individuality for each person in the Age of Aquarius consciousness.

And the “unity” of being in the same uniform transforms into individualism finding its place, function and purpose in the greater community: Diversity within Unity.

“Fated” events are on the way, and they will help us break out of the blocks, and liberate us from the chains of programmed conformity, and free us to find our way in this new world and Age.

So this week,  hand of time Saturn slows down, stops, and then rewinds for the few months of its retrograde motion. Powerful world and personal events during the retrograde period will remind us of previous world and personal events from the past.

Then on September 18 this year, the hand of time starts up again as Saturn goes back Direct.

This week, as Saturn goes Retrograde on Monday the 29th of April, you may get to thinking about what you want to accomplish and how you want to go about planning and organizing to make that successful. Or you may feel the hand of fate, or feel serious about something you need to do, or an obligation you need to meet.

Best case scenario is feeling grounded and motivated to manifest and accomplish. Remember we now have the Sun in fixed earth Taurus, and are also more connected to the gravity of Saturn. And we are also in the last quarter of a darkening Moon.

Find ways to lighten up and not feel so heavy or depressed now. But we nevertheless do need to do some last quarter releasing and getting ready for the New Moon in Taurus Saturday May 4.

Mars in Gemini is exactly opposite Jupiter in Sagittarius next week on Sunday May 5.

That will put some spark in the New Moon in Taurus. The USA natal Mars and Trump’s natal Sun and Moon are being triggered by the Mars/Jupiter opposition.  Let’s see what that means for us all.

Till next week,

Leo

Superior/Inferior Disillusion, and Astrology Forecast May 20-26.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on May 19, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This past week gave us the Taurus New Moon combined with a strong lineup of Uranus aspects.

It is time to move further forward in a more Taurus practical and solid manner; but we have also just had some wake-up calls that are meant to push us out of limitations, stuck-ness, and the slumber of status quo.

Last week North Korea showed signs it would not just comply with USA demands, on the way to a planned summit in June.  Last week we let you know that the date picked for that summit is a date when the USA militant natal Mars will be triggered.  It did not make sense last week, but after the North Korean complaints it does now.

Also last week just after the Mars/Uranus square there was another mass murder at a school, the 22nd such event this year 2018.

And not long after, there was a royal wedding in Great Britain.  Do you see the connection?

On one side of the same coin, the fantasy wedding that separates privileged “special” people from the rest of humanity was performed.

On the other side of the coin, the dark shadow side, a young man who was supposedly often bullied, goes on a murderous rampage.

Each side of the coin creates the equally distorted other side of the coin. Brutality motivates people to escape into fantasies of a perfect life.

And the separation caused by superiors pushing down others into inferior lives, creates a dark side of people who feel they are “less than”.

High School has always been a time when some kids are made to feel popular and “better than” , while others are often humiliated and made to feel inferior.

So it is time for all of us to realize no one, or no group of people is intrinsically any better or worse in the eyes of the Universe than anyone else.

This desire to be superior to others causes all sorts of separation and conflict in the world. My religion is superior to yours.  My country is superior to yours (Make America Great Again). My race or gender or sexual orientation is superior to yours.  The money and privilege I have makes me superior to you.  My family is better than yours.  I am better than you.

This human ego story is quite arguably at the root of so much suffering in this world, so many wars, so much poverty.

The Age of Aquarius is about equality and Diversity within Unity, and that is the antidote to all this separation caused by  the paradigm of superior and inferior.

And this last week was meant to wake us up to the need to change the stories that are causing our decay and destruction.

But this decay and destruction is not the end of the world, yet it is meant to be the end of the world as we have known it.

And each of us in our individual lives is also going through this ending of an Old Chapter of our lives, so we can be born into a new more evolved Chapter.

I see this in couples I work with who can no longer continue the relationship the same way it has always been.  I see this in people who no longer can live their lives without a renewed sense of purpose. I see this in people who are experiencing a very “dark night of the soul”, not knowing if there is a new Chapter waiting for them after the death of the old one.

I see this in people who are in such despair when looking at the condition of our current world, not believing something better is on the way.

Our personal lives and our collective life is in transition between worlds and ages, and that transformational process has now taken us to the edge, to the place of reckoning.

We need to let die what is ready to die, and often that is a part of us that carries old stories, old beliefs, and an old paradigm for how to live as a human on this Earth.

As we are awakened more and more, we see more clearly how we have been programmed to believe what we are “supposed to believe”.

And that awakened knowledge can be very disconcerting at first, and can have effect on all of our life, our relationships, jobs, families, spiritual perspectives, politics, and how we raise our children.

Then after we are awakened, we often look back and judge ourselves and how we have treated others. That judgmental attitude can be very debilitating and counterproductive.

We can only know what is best to do after we have been awakened, and then we need to develop an attitude of learning from our mistakes, not beating ourselves up for not being perfect.

There are more and more of us being awakened every day, and we need to help each other to stay on this new course.  And as our consciousness expands, the Universe helps us by showing us more synchronicities and more and more evidence that all is connected.

This week

And now as we have entered a Taurus lunar cycle since the Taurus New Moon last week, you can make more solid and permanent, your chosen life path. You can now build stronger boundaries to keep protected the sovereign being you are becoming.

You do not need to give yourself away or to become what others want you to be. You do not need to fix anyone else, or to be sure you are doing your life as you “are supposed to”.

You can now more firmly stay on your path with integrity.

On Sunday the 20th the Sun begins its annual dance into Gemini for the next month. Time to shift energy more up to the crown chakra, and to get more into intellectual movements, into wanting to learn more, communicate better, and be more social.

On the 25th Jupiter in Scorpio makes trine to Neptune in Pisces, opening you more to the mystery of life, more to surrendering to a bigger picture.

On the 26th Venus opposes Saturn, bringing us to more focus on relationship and a stronger sense of either relationship endings or commitments.

Next week is the Full Moon in Sagittarius, but for this week we are in the growth pattern of the waxing half of the lunar cycle.

Till next week

Leo

Wake Up Time and Astrology Forecast May 13-19

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 12, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Much is shifting this week

We jump out of the last quarter phase of the Moon on Tuesday May 15.   That is because a new lunar cycle begins with the New Moon in Taurus that day. It is at 7:48 AM EDT.

Before that new moon and after it, there are more energetic shifts.

Before the New Moon in Taurus on the 15th, Mercury conjuncts Uranus while it squares Uranus on Saturday the 12th and Sunday the 13th.

That signifies a wake-up call to move out of stuck places, and it may happen in unexpected or even seemingly irrational ways.

One can be liberated now from old patterns, beliefs, or habits.   Go with that wake-up even if it feels uncomfortable or unfamiliar.

This waking up and breaking out energy continues much of the week as Mars squares Uranus on the 16th.

If you have any mental or emotional cobwebs that have stayed in slumber even though Winter has long passed, this week should help sweep them away.

There should be no more reason to put off, or rationalize away, or be distracted from what is real and true for you.

You are being taken out of the old mental boxes of limited and limiting options, in order to see more clearly.

Often old patterns or ego stories keep us locked up in the stuck ruts of the past.

You are in a New Chapter now, and you will be better served with less emotional or mental baggage to carry with you.

You can use this week to shed some of that baggage, as you no longer need to continue Groundhog Day over and over again.

Liberation begins with waking up from old ways.  People are always telling me they wish they would have been different when they were younger, doing things differently.

But life does not work that way.  We wake up when it is time, and of course planetary movements let us know when it is time.

Uranus is the wake-up planet, and when it is strong in the collective as it is this week, or strong by transit to one’s personal natal chart; that is when energies of liberation from old ways or beliefs is strongest.

And with the New Moon in Taurus happening along with the Uranus movements,  we can take our next steps forward in our life’s journey.

This New Moon in Taurus coincides with so many important events in the Middle East and more specifically in Israel/Palestine.

Gaza is in much turmoil now; Palestinian Nakba Day is the 15th, symbolizing the 700,000  Palestinians who became homeless in 1948. The Muslim holiday Ramadan begins on the 16th and Israel celebrates the 70th anniversary of it modern birth on the 14th.

And most importantly, Trump has moved forward with his plan to move the USA embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, beginning on Monday the 14th.

It has been in Tel Aviv for many years; so yes it is a Uranus movement of breaking out of how things used to be.  But this is also bringing up much rage in the Palestinian and Muslim communities who see this move as a USA statement of making Jerusalem Israel’s property.  Jerusalem is considered sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims.

Much of the transformation of our Earthly human community out of an Old Age is focused on the Middle East where so many religions and early civilizations were formed.

This is where so much now seems unsolvable, and so it is likely to ignite into a powerful place of transformation, as early as this year.  Many cultures and religions have envisioned an end of the old world and a rising of a new world at the End Times.

And many of those old cultures and religions believe this will be centered in the Middle East.

This coming Summer Eclipse Season has 3 eclipses and they are very connected to the charts of Israel, Iran, and Syria.  Much will be stirring up in those places this summer.

Also happening soon is the summit between USA and North Korea. June 12 this year is the chosen date. It will be in Singapore

That day is one day before the New Moon in Gemini and 2 days before Trump’s birthday.

But most importantly, it is conjunct the USA natal Mars, which can only happen once a year.   Mars is the god of war, so symbolically it does not seem like a good day for such a summit.

But right now it does appear that we are all moving toward peace with this summit, so maybe there is something I am not seeing in the symbols.

Yet historically, triggers to that same degree (21 degrees Gemini) have shown events like the beginning of World War II for America and John Kennedy’s assassination.

The Old Age and its decaying ways are in the process of dying and its death may be painful.

Do not get engulfed in the stories and dramas and fears that will come from the coming events. Be aware of what is happening, but do so as an observer not a participant.

Now we will need more and more to focus on the knowledge that we live in a meaningful Universe, one that is filled with love and truth, and is in transition into an Age of Aquarius.

Where we focus our energy now is important.  We can more ably focus on the love and truth of the Age of Aquarius, as we let go of the old beliefs and patterns that were drummed into us from the programming of our families and culture.

That programming perpetuates the ways of the Old Age and Old Paradigm. It keeps us in patterns that are toxic and dysfunctional, filled with fear and mistrust, enemies and separateness.

The coming storms will clear out the deadwood and create space for our new world’s ways.

As you clear out the old, magic and synchronicity come more alive, your life feels more meaningful and purposeful, and you get more comfortable being authentic and receptive to love.

This week provides us with the Uranus wake-ups and the New Moon in Taurus forward movement.

Those beginnings are potentially quite solid, as is Taurus. Those Taurus movements forward may also be rather slow.  Taurus themes of land, home, money, resources, nature, one’s body and nourishment are likely now.  Enjoy the pleasures of the body and the senses and solidify whatever you have previously envisioned or recently begun.

Uranus is not only in aspect to Mars and Mercury this week. It also makes its entry into Taurus after being in Aries for the last seven years. This year it will temporarily go back into Aries late this year and early in 2019.

Then is March 2019 it moves firmly into Taurus for the next 7 years. The last time Uranus was in Taurus was in 1935- 1942.   Uranus has an approximate 84 year cycle.

Themes from back then will resurface during the next 7 years or so.

So much has been shifting and changing for all of us lately, both collectively and personally.  Yes change can be challenging, yet the more we can dance with it instead of fearing and fighting it, the better off we will be.

Transformation cannot be stopped now, but the great opportunity is for better lives, better relationships, more passion and aliveness, more magic and meaning, more love and connection.

Take the ride.

till next week,

Leo

Settling in to New Reality and Astrology Forecast May 6-12

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 5, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The light of the silvery Moon fades more and more now, as the current lunar cycle enters its 4th and last quarter phase on Monday May 7 this week.  The Moon enters the last quarter while in Aquarius.

That means that the dimming night light in the sky is lit up best now with thoughts of a more socially conscious world intending to serve all the Earth’s community.

Our thoughts and feelings and visions have much influence on the evolving collective consciousness of our human family here on Earth.

Our ancestors believed that the gods and goddesses of the planets ruled our lives as non negotiable fate.

And back then most also believed that the kings and queens who ruled the real world also fatalistically determined our human fate.

We have since been evolving our collective consciousness into a new perspective that sees “we the people” as rulers of our own world.

When Uranus, ruling planet of Aquarius, was discovered in 1781; there were two important revolutions igniting on Planet Earth: The American and French revolutions.

Both of these revolutions sought to overthrow the dominance of royalty, so individual humans would rule their own world.

And since then, through democratic institutions, such rule by the people has been attempted in many places across the world.

And this same attitude of human empowerment has been growing in relationship to planetary rulers too, as the planets were envisioned as connected to the gods and goddesses as in Jupiter, Venus, etc.

We humans have been learning about creating our own world, of course within the framework of planetary movements.

Yes the planets bring us energies that are real and need to be recognized and respected.  Yet we have been learning to co-create with these divine symbols from our heavens.

Just as weather systems bring in certain energies and configurations into our daily lives, we as humans choose our response to these systems and storms. And of course we have built shelters and damns and other structures to help us with these weather systems..

We now are at a huge turning point in our evolution toward creating our own world, in conjunction with what the Universe brings to us.

The Age of Aquarius is about developing a world community that is governed by “we the people” who are intrinsically equal in value to one another. That paradigm will naturally create a  world of Diversity Within Unity.

So this turning point in our human development means we must take full responsibility for our world, and be proactive in the downfall of Empire, Dictators, Presidents, Kings, Queens, Corporations, and Military that have heretofore dominated our existence and have been destroying the Earth and oceans, wildlife, and Universal values like love and truth that keep our souls, spirits, bodies, and lives healthy, vibrant and alive.

The craziness, ugliness, corruption, lies, and deceit that are so evident in the world now are part of the decay of the old world.

That decay is picking up speed and we are all feeling it in our own lives too. Our relationships, families, jobs, and sense of security are going through huge transformation now.  Everything is not the same as it was anymore.

We are all needing to grow and evolve now into realms that take us out of our comfort zones.

This is not doom and gloom developing; it is instead an opportunity to be better than ever before. But it sure can feel pretty bad sometimes in this transformational process to get to the better places.

So this week we move into the dimming Moon of the last quarter, which ends at the New Moon in Taurus on May 15.

Best now to slow down and not push hard for any agenda.

Tuesday could be the most intense day this week as the Sun opposes Jupiter in Scorpio.

And at the end of the week, Moon, Mercury and Uranus in Aries square up with Mars in Capricorn.  That is potentially the most  combative time this coming week.

Many events that are connected to the recent opening of the portal in mid April will continue to pour in.  We are in a New Chapter of our personal and collective lives now and the new events are reflective of a “new normal” that is developing.

The Trump decision on Iran; opening of USA embassy in Jerusalem;  and meeting of Trump and Kim of North Korea all happen in May and June.  The results will help define what this New Chapter will be like in the global world.

All is leading up to a very powerful Eclipse Season in July and August, when there are 3 eclipses in a row. That is when Pandora’s Box will break open with many world events.

Iran, Israel, Syria, and Russia are all closely connected to these coming eclipses, and powerful events involving these countries are quite likely.

There is a Solar Eclipse in Cancer closely opposed by Pluto in Capricorn on July 12;  a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius that forms a strong fixed T-square with Mars and Uranus on July 27; and another Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11 that is square Jupiter in Scorpio.

All this will be happening with Mars and Mercury Retrograde during much of that Eclipse Season.

Of course we will explain much more as we get closer to that Eclipse Season.

Remember that everything is happening meaningfully, and is part of our transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

We humans have the ability to co-create now;  and we will be at our best if we are in integrity with the higher values of the heavens of the Universe, while honoring the values of the essential and primal movements of Nature and Earth, our Home.

Use the time this week, during the 4th quarter Moon, to get your bearings, to get yourself and your life “together”, and to get ready for the next lunar cycle at the New Moon in Taurus on May 15.

Till next week,

Leo

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.
