Optimism and Pessimism and Astrology Forecast September 1-7

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , on August 31, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

A Virgo New Moon this last Friday has pushed us forward with new start ups and beginnings.

The most likely kind of forward movement now is for fixing up, cleaning out, and creating a sense of order and grounded common sense in our lives.

This week there is a strong Virgo influence with the Sun, Mercury, Venus,  and Mars all hanging out together in orderly, “realistic”, perfectionistic,  humble and logical Virgo.

This week, however, there are energies emerging that often bring turmoil into the “close to the Earth”  expressions of Virgo.

That is because Jupiter in Sagittarius, where Jupiter has been all year, squares the Virgo planets, and brings with it uplifting, inspiration driven, expansive, adventurous energies.

You would think that any sign would love to experience such spirit rising.

But Virgo is quite arguably a “glass half empty” kind of sign, not trusting or finding it easy  to let in anything or anyone that is filled up with unbridled joy or “high flying” thoughts and emotions.

Sagittarius is very much a “glass half full” kind of sign.

When they are in conflicting relationship with each other, as they are now in square, each sign tends to go to extremes to get itself “heard”.

So in this state, Jupiter in Sagittarius tends to be overly excited, impulsive, jumping to conclusions, fantasy indulging, and high flying.

Virgo usually sees itself as realistic, when in actuality it can be very skeptical and pessimistic at times.

So a prevailing theme this week is an unpredictable roller coaster ride of positive and hopeful up-swing and negative and hopeless down-swing, up and down.

You can likely expect your aims to create calm simple order in your life to be confronted by excitable people or situations that bring “chaos”.

And conversely expect your aims to stay on the “high road” to be confronted by people or situations that throw a wet blanket on your soaring spirit.

This Virgo lunar cycle is meant to get us to work harder and to bring more simple order and practical sense into our lives.  Events that get us very excitable will challenge that agenda.

On Monday Labor Day in America, the Sun makes conjunction with Mars in Virgo.  Be careful of your own anger or the anger of others thrown at you.  And that anger might be accompanied by strict criticisms and judgmental opinions.

Do your best to not be defensive, but instead to take it in as constructive criticism that will help you to get better and better at what you do.

Watch the world out there to show us events, surrounding the Sun/Mars conjunction in Virgo, that tend to make us feel “half empty”.

So many have been feeling quite hopeless in recent times because of the state of our culture and world.

Yes our world is in bad shape right now in many ways, so we need to band together to help transform and heal it.

Our Earth and human family are coming up to a crossroads on the highway of transition between an Age of Pisces and a coming Age of Aquarius.

When we experience the old Paradigm with its fears and hatreds, we can feel so down and hopeless. And then we tune into the new Paradigm with its love, empathy, and magic, and we can then feel so filled with hope and joy.

That swing up and down is a natural rhythm for being in transition during Transformation and Healing cycles.

Expect that energetic to continue; yet we can learn to handle those swings better by finding an inner observer.

That observer knows the swings are natural and accepts this.  Yet is also knows that hanging onto the high or being crushed by the low does not serve us well.

The relationship between opposites can be intense now. Dark and Light both want attention. So do Yang and Yin. So do Male and Female.

All is being re-integrated and re-balanced.  We can trust the process and let go of trying so hard to keep control.

Here are some highlights for the month ahead:

There is a Full Moon in Pisces on Friday the 13th of September.  This is a time to connect with the Mysteries

On the 18th, Hand of Time Saturn goes Direct. This is a time to know- It is Time. Time marches on.

September 21, Jupiter squares Neptune to trigger the wand of magic coming alive

On September 23, there is the Autumn Equinox bringing equal balance between light and dark as the Sun moves into Libra.

On September 28 there is a New Moon in Libra, bringing more Beauty and Love into life.

The Trump world is not taking over our lives and souls. Why would we allow it?

The world he has brought with him is a world that has been leaving us for some time now.   It cannot come back for more than a “second” in the vast network of Time. That time is almost up.

Instead of complaining or letting fear take us over,  we can take more responsibility for the country and world we have all built together.

And we can take more responsibility for healing it and ourselves; and for transforming this world and ourselves with an abundance of Love and a dedication to Truth.

December 2019/January 2020 give us the next Eclipse Season. It will be especially powerful as Saturn conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn in connection with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer.

This promises a most powerful turning point in our collective human experience on Planet Earth.

Till next week

What Are We Waiting For and Astrology Forecast August 25-31

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on August 24, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The greatest  part of this coming week is a continuation of the previous week.  The Moon is still moving down through its darkening, waning half of the lunar cycle.

The Sun is still in a fix-it, mend-it, heal-it, perfect-it, maintain-it, clean it up, make it more orderly Virgo energetic. Venus and Mars have joined the Sun in Virgo, providing even more energy for developing physical purity and critical discernment.

That discernment can feel quite judgmental at times, and judging oneself can be especially hurtful.

A positive use of this Virgo energy is to help you to see the trees in the forest, and each branch and leaf of those trees.  Virgo can gently help make everything be more real; can tell you who or what may not be good for you; and can bum-out any overly romanticized illusion you may have conjured up.

And yes Virgo can be very good at bringing things “down to Earth”, more simple and ordered. It is the most gentle and flexible of the 3 Earth signs.

The 4th quarter of the lunar cycle ends at the New Moon in Virgo on Friday August 30 at 6:37 AM EDT.   It becomes a New Moon because the Moon catches up with the Sun at the same degree of the same sign. In this case it is almost 7 degrees of Virgo.

The slow come-down of the 4th quarter Moon shifts into a let’s get going and get things done New Moon in Virgo.

During the darkening skies, as the Moon finishes the last quarter of its cycle, it is a great time for meditation, intentions, prayers, and positive visualization.

Then when the first sliver of light shows a day or so after the actual time of the New Moon, the new beginnings come alive. Saturday night of August 31 is when that light should appear.

I know you see the grand scale of transformation and change that is brewing in our country and world. I have mentioned many times how the Military/Industrial Complex of the Empire is beginning to transform.

This takes place in the economy and the military/police segments of American society.

The economy showed big signs of trouble this last week with a very aggressive trade war with China breaking open. There is little doubt what we face ahead in the stock market and economy.

And the USA is making enemy of so many peoples. We are isolating from the rest of the world with our current focus on Nationalism. This is what happened just before World War II.  Germany, Japan, Italy and others became much more nationalistic.

On Wednesday August 28 Mars in Virgo makes trine with Uranus in Taurus. This energy should shake things up, but not out of control.  Stuck energies or patterns get some assistance in breaking away.

The next day on August 29, the Sun also trines Uranus, continuing the theme of breaking open what has been stuck or complacent.  And on that same day Mercury leaves Leo and enters Virgo, building up even more Team Virgo.

Late that night, on its way to a new moon the next day, the Moon also enters Virgo.

We are getting used to this new reality we are in.  But more importantly it has been feeling for some time now that we are waiting for something, and that we cannot make decisions or find direction until it happens.

Most of us know by now that the Trump world is real, not an illusion or bad dream.

Virgo will help us now to face up to what is really happening and figure out how to make things better.

Most of the really important work now is in our consciousness.  The parts of our consciousness that are a result of programming received by the culture and family, needs to be released.

Thinking for oneself is essential in the Age of Aquarius.  Diversity within Unity is a pillar concept of the new world. And diversity requires individualism.  And the sign Aquarius is quite arguably the most individualized of all.

Aquarius needs to know and accept that it is different, Often times that may get one to feel they are weird and will never fit in.

And that is the process of Aquarius:  honoring the differences while looking to join with others in unity.

Thinking for oneself often begins by speaking up to parents or other authority figures. There is a rebellion of sorts and a feeling of being different and not needing to be or think what others want you to think or be. The teen years are a usual time for getting more independent and feeling more separate from family and culture.

But at the same time teens are looking for a group or clique or club or team that one feels “at home” in.

And now many people feel lost.  Their old allegiances no longer work for them. They do not know where or how they fit in anymore.

I have been seeing so many families breaking apart over the current political and cultural battles.

Some people cannot understand anyone being for Trump, and are amazed when some family member has that allegiance.

Facebook battles have also intensified, with some really nasty comments made to one another.

People in each camp feel so distant from each other in their beliefs.

I have read in Civil War books how one brother fought with the North while another brother fought with the Confederacy.

It seems almost surreal how many opinions are similar to back then.

The red states, which are mainly in the South, fall in line for Trump and his values and policies.  The blue states, mainly up north and on the coasts, have values more aligned with Obama’s values and policies.

Many of those  red state people really hated Obama, and Trump fed their anger with his claims that Obama was not born in the USA and instead was a Muslim wanting to bring down the country.

And now blue state people hate Trump and want him gone as quickly as possible.

It is Civil War again. Remember that the North won the war, ended slavery and plantations, and tried to bring the country back together again.

But surprising to some, they never did truly come back together again.

Wholeness and connectedness is important for an individual, country, community, family, etc.

A breaking apart, however, is part of the process of transformation.  The old formation is not working anymore, is not healthy or growing and evolving.  This happens with relationships too.

Each member of the relationship is growing in a different direction from the other member. They then either go their separate ways, or else figure out how to come back together from their new states of being. They build a new Wholeness and connectedness, one that has evolved into a better and healthier way of being.

Our country and world are experiencing such a transformation.

And since this is about a changing of Ages, such a big cycle of transformation, after over two thousand years of being in the Age of Pisces; we are collectively changing at the very core of our beings in order to be aligned with this Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Autumn Equinox and Astrology Forecast September 16-22.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

2018 Summer Eclipse Season has ended, and late this week Summer itself will end.

As the curtain comes down on the summer of 2018, we find ourselves in a personal New Chapter of our lives.  

That New Chapter is much more than the ending and beginning of nature’s seasons.

It is truly about entering a new and important era of our personal lives.

And it is truly about entering a new and important era of our collective life, both our global and American lives.

Most important in this new era is that this new era has at its core  the values you believe in.

Then after you have put your heart values and mental principles as your guiding light in this New Chapter, you have automatically built the foundation for the New Chapter you are entering and building.

Have you totally accepted this new era of your life?  Do you recognize you are truly in a new era or chapter of your life?

I know everything is feeling different inside for many.  The usual connections inside each of us are shifting.  The old normal inside us is gone.

And of course our personal lives are the micro to the macro of our greater world and Universe.

And as the wheels of the Universe turn into new territory, so too are we personally turning into new territory.

And as the societies of America and the world change, as they are beginning to do rather drastically, each of our souls is also being called to make deep transformational change.

It is obvious that the United States is slowly leaving its soul, and forgetting about the lofty principles it was founded on.

So deep transformation into an Age of Aquarius requires each of us individually and all of us collectively to make sure we are living by these standards.

Our “better angels” can guide us forward through this new terrain now.

Our American lives are so in the middle of deep transformation.  And the culture wars in the United States are bringing out the worst in people, on both sides.

People will lie and cheat to make sure their chosen agenda will win. To them the end justifies the means.  Do you believe that?

Hitler believed that exterminating those who did not fit his paradigm for how the new human should be and look like was OK to do.

“Kill or be killed” is how our politicians  are thinking and acting now.  The bloody fight, over who the next Supreme Court Justice will be,  is way over the top.

We need to return to our deeper values and deeper sense of what is right and wrong now.

The picture is much bigger and deeper then judges or political parties or religions.

Yes we need to stand up for what we believe, but we do not need to demonize and crush those who believe differently.  Trust me, those people you are demonizing also demonize you.  That alone should tell us something important. They believe what you stand for is evil and wrong, as you believe about them and their values.

We are on the verge of total war between American cultures, and total war between countries too.  And demonizing is what governments tend to do before attacking. It was Saddam Hussein, then Gadafi,  then Kim Jong Un, and now Bashar Assad president of Syria. And it will keep going after others whose countries we want to bring into our vision of how a country or culture or person should be.

This is how religions often act too. Each one believes it has found “The Way”. and their god is the true god.

Respecting each other’s differences is so Age of Aquarius, and that attitude shows the best of being Aquarius.

Now Trump is on the verge of real action from people who want to get rid of him as president.

And of course he is not a great example of being American, human, or a man.

Nevertheless, our very deep problems in America will not be eliminated if Trump leaves office. The Pence administration might make the culture wars exacerbate even more.

Trump’s presence has brought these culture wars for the soul of America come out in the light for all to see.

But the war will still be alive until we the people realize that all these people, no matter what agenda they carry, are Americans, and even more importantly Humans.

The Middle East is really on the edge of great conflict now, so let us hope leaders will pull back from that edge.

This week we are in the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle that began at the Virgo New Moon on September 9.  So energies are waxing in the lunar cycle, allowing us to feel we are moving forward in its regard.

But the solar cycle is about to show us an important turning point in the year, a turning point that points us to more yin or dark energies.

That solar cycle take us to the Autumn Equinox, which begins the time of Sun in Libra.

Autumn Equinox is on Saturday September 22 at 9:54 PM EDT.

Light and dark, yin and yang, male and female are equal at the Autumn Equinox.  Yet right after that moment, darker, more yin and female energies begin to expand their presence.

Metaphorically Autumn Equinox is like a sunset time of day,  in between light and dark.

The Sun’s yearly voyage through Libra begins at the Autumn Equinox also.

Most aptly with the Autumn Equinox, Libra is the scales of balance, scales of justice too.

Libra is most drawn to relationship, the “best” ways of being social or being in a society.

It seeks all to be lovely and fair, and it can be a great mediator or diplomat.

Is is usually very accommodating of others, sometimes to a fault as it often loses its Self in the process.

Libra really cares about things being fair or just, and about issues working for everyone, not just one person.  Libra is quite able to make everything symmetrical and color coordinated and pretty too. It likes things to be pleasant and peaceful.

So as this coming week comes to an end at the Autumn Equinox, it is a time to begin to shift away from more self centered attitudes and ways of being.

Instead it is time to listen better to others, to think of social values, to be more peaceful and ready to negotiate or compromise.

Perhaps out in the world, in America, in the Middle East, and elsewhere, there will be attempts to work harder to make peace and harmony between people.

There could be some surprises or shocks coming early to mid week, as Mars in Aquarius squares Uranus late Tuesday.

That is meant to be some kind of wake up call that shows how to think and move “outside the box”.  That wake up call may tend to show new ways to solve old problems.

Mars/Uranus contacts also can show rebellious behavior, and radical action.  World events that shake things up and get us thinking differently than we are used to are more likely than usual.

Till next week

Leo

100% Real and Astrology Forecast September 9-15

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on September 8, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Summer Eclipse Season 2018 pretty much ends on Sunday September 9, at the New Moon in Virgo at 2:01 PM EDT.

It was one super intense Eclipse Season ride with 3 eclipses and both Mercury and Mars Retrograde.

Transformation was deeply experienced by many.  Old ways of relating and thinking were questioned.  Awakening energies were strong, taking people outside old boxes in their minds and lives.

Any shakeups of your life or thinking were meant to take you out of the status quo, same-old habits that kept you cruising in your stuck-ness.

We should be over the hump of any tentativeness this week, and ready to take on whatever comes our way now in our New Chapter of life.

There is no returning to the old normal anymore, instead we are moving further forward toward a new normal. Right now, however, many are “in between”.

Even if outer circumstances have hardly changed in our personal lives, nevertheless there is a feeling of being in a different zone inside ourselves. And intuitively there is a knowing of much change on the way.

Eclipse Season and the Retrogrades shook us up, now we get ready for the changes that result from that time period.

And this New Moon in Virgo represents our movement forward after Eclipse Season.  Neptune is opposite that New Moon in Virgo, so movement forward is slow, slowed down by a need to surrender to unseen forces and to let go of needs to control or keep with a strict agenda.

Virgo finds “what’s wrong with this picture”, zeros in on what is not right or perfect or in order, and then looks for the remedies.

Virgo is directed to the physical world as it is an earth sign, so what it senses is out of order is usually our physical possessions, our bodies, our equipment, our houses, or our physical environment.

Virgo seeks to mend, fix, doctor, heal, put together, maintain, order, realign, and/or make more efficient in our physical world. It feels its purpose when it is humbly of service to others or a cause.

Neptune however trusts in the deep process of soul, and allows for magic to help find the way.  It is connected more to soul than physical, so this New Moon helps us to bring together body and soul, logic and imagination.

For many now, before they are ready to truly leap on the train of fast forward movement, they need to get right with some things in their life.

In our global world and here in America, it is obvious that we are in a new zone.  The Trump factor has shown us even more during the passing Eclipse Season that we cannot go back “home” again.

We must develop a new sense of what is right for us, what is home base inside us.

The world is looking so much different than before, and soon events will unfold that show us how far from our old “home” we have traveled.

We are in a new zone, a new chapter, a new era, a new world.  And as ugly as it looks and feels sometimes, it has awakened us, and helped us to leave an old paradigm that was dying long before Trump came to town.

Trump World has been showing us the underbelly of the old paradigm.  It is like how the mafia has always shown us the dark side of American values.

And now we are seeing how messed up we have collectively become because of our inner demons of  fame, wealth, status, bigotry, narcissism, revenge, and a sense of privilege and superiority.

Trump World brings our demons to the surface. We are the ones who must decide how we handle these American shadows.

If we each fight our demons with demonic hatreds and bigotries of our own, we perpetuate that which we say we want to rid ourselves of.

Trump World will pass, but if its existence makes us more cynical, hateful, and hopeless, we have enabled it to win over our hearts and souls.

So we need to dig deep to find the better angels of our country’s and our own values. And with those as our foundation, we can create a New World, New Paradigm and New Age.

And for now this week, we move forward with Virgo values in mind.

Virgo has the Virgin as its symbol. That Virgin represents purity and perfection, as both we humans and our Earth started out.

And then after we left  our “Garden of Eden”  innocence, we decided to see the world “out there” for ourselves. And we then got muddied and our Earth has since been soiled with impurities we have given it.

Now we must reach for the Sky with our feet on the Earth, in order to reclaim the natural pure values from our Universe and Earth.

Yet also with the street-smart wisdoms we have gained from our experience on the streets of our human experience,  we can help those who have lost their way from “home”.

As we gather our lost souls, return to our “better angel” values including the Universe’s pillars of Love and Truth, we come together to heal our unified human family on our beautiful and sacred planet Earth.

So use the Virgo energies now to see what is wrong, and then purify, heal, mend and fix what has been broken in your own life.

That New Moon in Virgo on September 9 is accompanied by Venus going into Scorpio that day also.

So Venus leaves the balanced and civilized Libra, and enters the Scorpio world of primal passions and deep experience.

So if your relationships have gone on cruise-control, now with Venus in Scorpio you will begin to “get down” into what is real and what needs to be transformed in those relationships.

Venus will be in Scorpio for an extended period of time as it will go retrograde on October 5, go retro through the end of Libra again, then back again into Scorpio until early in 2019.  So deep passionate relating is in the stars for us for awhile.

Old patterns that keep us apart from intimacy will seek to be transformed. Either new patterns or new relationships are in the near future.

Also this week, there will be more getting down into the “nitty gritty” as the Sun in Virgo makes aspects to Jupiter in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn. And Jupiter in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn exactly sextile one another mid-week.

There is no escape this week from what is real and deeply meaningful.

Venus, newly in Scorpio, makes an opposition to Uranus in Taurus on Wednesday the 12th, and that will mean wake up time for relationships this week.

And also with the Moon in Scorpio most of Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week, it seems that much will be uncovered this week.  And in that process deeper issues will be processed by ourselves and in our relationships.

Issues and potential conflicts in the greater world that have been building, will tend to be brought to a head this week, and it could get ugly.

This is especially true for the Middle East and Trump World.

And in that outer world, but also in our personal lives,  much more is coming out, coming to a head, and then released and purged.

Do your best this week, with the prevailing energies, to keep things simple and real. Escapism will not work well this week.

Till next week,

Leo

Down to New Reality and Astrology Forecast September 2-8.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we come to the end of Summer Eclipse Season 2018.  So energetically there is less force and power pushing us to transform and change. 

Yet there will be more in the way of important events to follow, because what has been “shaken up”, “broken  down” and “broken through” during transformational Eclipse Season, (as also Mars and Mercury were Retrograde), is now being collected, put together and being decided.

Especially since Mars went Direct, the movement now is toward action and manifestation.

And that means events, that are the natural result of the recent transformation that has brought us all into this new era or chapter of our lives, are ready to unfold.

These important events will begin to define this new chapter.

In the greater world, there is so much that is simmering on the edge of the cliff of big change.

The Middle East is so on the edge of jumping off into major conflict.   Russia, Iran, Hamas, Iraq, and Syria are joining together. The USA, Israel, and Saudi Arabia are running counter to those countries.  Something is close to breaking open. Many other countries will be choosing sides as a result.

North Korea and the USA are breaking apart from their Summit’s agreements. China, Japan, and South Korea are greatly affected by th.

China is in a trade war with the USA, who is also in a trade war with many of its allies. The world’s stock markets and economies are dependent on world trade.

There is a serious culture war going on in the USA, and that culture war is separating families, just like happened in the Civil War in the USA

The Mueller investigation is now picking up steam and appears headed for eventual impeachment proceedings.

All of these issues are looking down from that cliff’s edge.

And when it all breaks open, which is a big part of this new era, our world will change and transform in ways that facilitate the consciousness for the Age of Aquarius.

Many who read this have already begun transforming their consciousness and lives in ways that align with this New Age.

And many others will wake up and join the wave of change as our world transforms.

But of course others will get more dug in to the consciousness and ways of the old world paradigm.

That resistance to the new world will cause much turmoil and distress to our world, but it actually is part of the natural process of transformation.

In your own life, when you have been motivated to transform your life through ending of relationships, or jobs, or whatever felt secure; you know you had to move through your own resistance to that change.

And this is a changing of Ages, an enormous earth shaking event for our human family.

Of course there is resistance, especially from those who have known privilege in the old world.  But like it or not, the new age is inevitable.  We can go kicking and screaming or we can instead allow the grace of the Universe to take us forward.

Death of the old is usually feared, and birth of the new can feel so filled with chaos and fear of the unknown.

But the new can also be filled with such feelings of liberation, hope, and joy.   It can bring a clean slate, one that can be filled with new intention and purpose.

Just after we experienced Mercury and Mars going Direct at the end of Eclipse Season, two iconic figures of our collective past died: John McCain and Aretha Franklin.

Death can bring feelings of love and affection for what or who has passed.  The old age and paradigm were not all bad. For most they contained many great memories and many people with whom we shared love.

This week we move through the 4th and last quarter of the Moon, which begins with the Moon in Gemini Sunday September 2.

This last quarter of the lunar cycle, which shows our Moon slowly losing its light, which people all over the globe will experience together, effectively brings an end to Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

In the middle of this light dimming week, Saturn changes direction from Retrograde to Direct on September 6.

Saturn, the symbolic gravity of the hand of time, tells us as it moves direct that there is no running away from time.  And the clock, as Saturn goes Direct, is starting up again, another sign of forward movement for our collective and personal lives.

Then three days later, on September 9 at 2:01 PM EDT, there is the New Moon in Virgo that symbolically begins in reality our new chapter.

It is time to know the changes are real, not just academic or conceptual.

Virgo makes things real, though sometimes that reality is just seeing the glass as half empty instead of half full.

So it will be important now to discern if your attitude is reflective of a need to come down to reality to face the truth, or instead is it a heavy dose of pessimism?

Nevertheless, it is time at this New Moon in Virgo to ground, simplify, and humbly move forward toward manifesting what has only previously been imagined.

For some it will be a time to fix what has been broken, mend what has been torn apart,  and heal what has been suffered.

On a mundane level, many people after the Virgo New Moon go to doctors or dentists or mechanics, etc.

Others feel a need to get down to work and to put more order into their lives.

Virgo time also can bring some people to more worry and stressful self criticism. If the criticism moves you to make needed changes that is good. But if that criticism is not constructive, and instead stresses you to the point of self hatred and/or depression or passivity, it is not right.

It is also end of summer in the northern hemisphere, as Autumn Equinox is only a couple weeks away.  So the Virgo New Moon represents another ending, but also a transition month into the beauty and grace of Autumn.

There are so many temptations in life now that tend to take us away from what is natural. Our devices, our tightly scheduled lives, our sitting down inside our homes and places of work all tend to keep us from what is natural and from our own nature.

Astrology is an extension of nature, a reading of the natural cycles and energies of life.

It can help us to be more a part of what is natural, but it also takes an effort to cross the threshold out of our self contained bubbles of existence, and into the “out of our control” movement of natural forces both inside and outside ourselves. The effort is worth it.

Till next week,

Leo

Mars Direct, Taking Action, and Astrology Forecast August 26- September 1

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 25, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Energy shift again this week, as there is a Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th, then Mars goes Direct on the 27th.

Last week Mercury went Direct after a rather difficult Retrograde time period that coincided with 2 of the Eclipses this Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

After Mercury goes Direct, mental fogs begin to lift as issues we were previously questioning begin to clear up.

And out in the world it happened almost in a textbook astrological fashion.

A few days after Mercury went Direct last week, the jury finally ended deliberation and found Trump’s campaign manager Manafort guilty on 8 felony counts ; his ex lawyer Cohen admitted guilt and implicated Trump; and Molly Tibbets who was lost for weeks was finally found dead in an Iowa cornfield and her killer was apprehended.

In your own life, did any issues clear up last week for you too?  If not this week it will likely happen soon, as in some cases it takes up to 10 days or so after Mercury is back Direct before clarity and direction are found. Mercury went Direct on the 18th/19th of August.

Adding to the feeling of direct motion this week is the fact that Mars goes Direct on the 27th.

Mars is desire, will, assertion, force, and action.  When Mars is Retrograde, deep in our souls we are deciding what we truly want and/or what action we will take or direction we choose to move toward.

After the 27th you will begin to know more clearly what you want.  Give it up to 10 days or so before you are entirely clear.  Taking action will begin to come more easily too, as will the courage to do what is needed or wanted.

In the greater world, people or countries that have held back in any way will begin to be more decisive and more ready to take action.

But the “corner will not be turned” out of the old chapter and into a new chapter until “hand of time” Saturn goes Direct on September 6.

Then 3 days later there is a New Moon in Virgo on the 9th.   The New Chapter is ‘”earthed” in reality after that.

But coming back to this week, Sunday the 26th is a Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces at 7:56 AM EDT.

This is usually a very gentle full moon. But a Venus square Pluto aspect that day will likely bring more intensity than usual. And of course a direction-changing forceful Mars will also be strong in our energy fields for a few days.

The Full Moon has the Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces.

Virgo is order and efficiency, simplicity and discernment, reality in the material world, and needs for purity and perfection on the physical plane of existence. It sees what is wrong or flawed and seeks to correct or fix it.

Pisces is other-worldly, dreamy and idealistic, sensitive and unconditional, flowing, feeling, and connected to the worlds of consciousness and the world of dreams, metaphors and symbols.

They both can be selfless and doing for others or a cause bigger than themselves.

So at this Full Moon in Pisces, put your ego away and surrender to the forces of nature and the Universe.

Find a balance between outer world reality (Virgo) and inner dimensions of consciousness (Pisces).  Do your best to combine body (Virgo) and soul (Pisces). Though many religions try to separate them, making the body an enemy and the soul heavenly, in actuality they belong together all the time: Soul giving energy, consciousness, and purpose to our sacred vessel bodies.

Venus square Pluto that same day could bring some relationship challenges, meant to help us transform old patterns that no longer work in the relationship.

Then on Monday the 27th, Mars goes Direct and time to begin to move forward.

Last week the Mueller investigation showed us it has some claws now, and Donald Trump is in trouble.

As the heat gets more turned up, he will likely try to distract through making other issues more important, so watch for world conflicts, especially with Syria and Iran.  China, and North Korea also bear watching.

In October/November Trump’s natal Mars in Leo is triggered by Jupiter in Scorpio and transiting Mars in Aquarius.  That is when he will be fighting for his life and perhaps turning up the heat on world conflicts too.

The economy could also be challenged this Autumn and Winter, as transiting Saturn opposes the USA natal Venus and Jupiter, signifying gravity affecting USA sense of security, well being, and positive feelings.

For Donald Trump 2019 and 2020 will be most challenging,as Pluto will oppose Trump’s natal Venus in Cancer and Saturn in Cancer.  Security, safety, and well being will be in conflict for him. This is when impeachment will likely be front and center for him.

It is obvious to most now, I believe, that the world as we have known it is leaving us.

All is happening for a reason, as we are moving out of an old Age and moving into a New Age of Aquarius.

Feelings of doom and gloom need to be replaced by a knowing that “we the people” are now responsible for rebuilding our country and world.

And the foundation for that world is formed with our higher values and principles. Many will be in desperation and survival to the extent that they will not care about these values.

But when one sees the bigger picture of world transformation, one can divorce oneself from desperate fear, hatred of enemies, and panic.

Trump is meant to be in this position in our world now.   And he will likely not go down as easily as Nixon did.  The comparisons between those eras and Presidents is remarkable, so similar.

The job was not finished back in the ’60s and ’70s.

Now the young people of this country can be mentored by the elders who went through the Nixon years, as long as those elders stay aware that the world is being left to future generations who must shape this new revolution and evolution with their signature, not ours.

Quit complaining about Trump and the people who follow him.  You are playing into his need for attention and drama and his narcissism.  We are adding to the division of cultures in our country and world. There is nothing to fight against. There is plenty to fight for.

We can concentrate on keeping our higher values and principles, being aligned with the Universe and our Souls, keeping spiritual and humanitarian perspectives, and fighting to be heard and fighting for what we believe in.

There is no going back to “normal” anymore.  We are in a New Era on the way to the Age of Aquarius. Let’s make the best of it!

Till next week,

Leo

Mercury Direct, Mars soon too, and Astrology Forecast August 19-25

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on August 18, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this week’s forecast, Mercury is stationary, getting ready to shift from Retrograde to Direct at 12:25 AM EDT on Sunday August 19.  All other USA time zones have Mercury going Direct late on August 18.

When Mercury has slowed down and shifts to Direct, the mind is in flux, and things may feel more confusing or unusual or strange.

This will continue until around Monday the 20th, when our mind should again begin to feel more stable and clear.

Then for some it may take another week or so before they feel more back to normal mentally.

Waiting to make big decisions is a good thing now as Mercury’s trickster self often comes out to play when it shifts direction.

Keep in mind that Mars, however, remains Retrograde this week. It goes back Direct on August 27.

So clear direction, needs for willful action, and needs to know what you want now, are still on hold.

What do you really want for your life now?  What needs to be let go of in order to leave room for what you truly want?

At first do not think about it being practical or not. Get in touch with your “wants” from a pure or core place inside of you.

Once that is clear, then you can start your inner dialogue about how those desires can be grounded in reality.

And also while Mars is still Retrograde, get in touch with how these desires must be connected to your Soul or Spirit self, not just material desires.

You have been growing and evolving, finding your purpose and authentic Self in this world and Universe.

All your choices now can be connected to both your “higher self” and “lower self”. It is like telling a higher power, “make my will be thou will”.

Picking a home or relationship, for instance, that is connected to your True Self is just as important or actually more so, than price, image, and practical reality.

Are paying your bills or making your ego satisfied the reasons you came to the Earth?

Do you have a purpose? I do not mean a grandiose purpose necessarily, but rather a function in the human collective for the new world.

And a homemaker or mechanic, for instance, contribute to and service our community,  Earth and Universe- IF that is truly their function not just what they had to do to survive.

And one’s purpose or function can change over the course of a lifetime. The homemaker decides she will best serve and be deeply satisfied as a lawyer after her kids are mature enough or gone from the home.

But the point being made is that it is important to know what you want and what purpose is right for you at a deep level.

There are too many doctors or lawyers or CEO’s that took those careers because they gave them status or wealth. I am not now saying it is necessarily wrong to want those things in a career. I am saying that those reasons are best not being the main reasons for wanting the career. Being “called” to be a healer or doctor is most important to the professions in the medical or healing world.

Our world would be best served if everyone was doing what is deeply connected to their true purpose and function first and foremost.

The Age of Aquarius has Diversity within Unity as its signature, so finding your unique and authentic self and its place in the whole is most important.

I can tell you from experience that the Universe will help support you if you are in alignment with Your Truth and its contribution to the Earth, human community, and Universe.

The walls of the old ways of being separated and disconnected are leaving us now.

Yes the ways of separation inside ourselves is being broken down also. That does not mean all is unified in a way that each person must wear the same uniform as everyone else and hence losing of one’s individuality.

We are breaking down the walls of separation and at the same time opening the way for each person or entity to find and honor their true authentic Self and from that place contribute to the Whole Universe, Whole Earth and its creatures, and the Whole human community.

But first each of us must actualize our true whole Self by accepting our own inner diversity.

We cannot judge harshly or seriously repress any part of our multi-faced and multi-dimensional human Self.

We can keep each facet of ourselves alive and accepted, and expressed in the best way for our whole and unified Self.

As we accept all our many facets of self, we are doing what is needed in the world and human community within our own soul.

If your parents or other authorities shamed you for your passion or kindness or slowness or forcefulness, for instance, you tend to dislike that part of yourself and suppress it. Or rebel and force it on others.

The same is done out in the world. If someone is gay, for instance, they may be programmed by society or family or friends to judge themselves, be ashamed of themselves, and may suppress how they naturally express themselves or act out in the world. Or they stay in the closet. It takes real courage and self honoring to come out of judged boxes.

And each of us has been told who we are “supposed to be” in order to be accepted and not judged.

So we may then be ashamed and hide certain parts of our selves, keeping those traits boxed in our own inner closet.

Now the walls are coming down, we are each awakening, and knowing from a deeper place than ever before, that all in its essence is good, and all is connected.

Eclipse Season is still alive, but the energies are not as intense now. We are kind of seeing where all is at as the dust settles. Then later we will be ready to act in accordance with our collected soul wholeness and true function or purpose in this New Chapter of life on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

Mercury goes Direct at 12:25 AM EDT on August 19. And within two hours of the beginning of Mercury going Direct, Jupiter trines Neptune.

This is a potentially very spiritual combination, one that can take us into other dimensions or realities.  Your meditations may have more magic, as can be in your consciousness and life with synchronicity and meaningful symbols from the Universe.

But that same combination of Jupiter with Neptune can bring confusion or chaos. There are no boundaries with Jupiter/Neptune, so you could either fly into mystical dimensions or be in situations or mind frames that have you feeling disoriented.

Heads up this week, especially from late Saturday through Monday. Keep alcohol or drugs in moderation this week.

On the 22nd/23rd (12:09 AM EDT) the Sun goes into Virgo for its annual 30 day trip.

This can be a rather sobering time of the Virgo virgin needing things pure, ordered, efficient, and with discerning eye.

Virgo seeks perfection and can easily focus in on whatever is stopping things from being perfect or ordered.  So it tends to find what is wrong, and then sets out to fix, heal, and perfect.

Virgo time of year opens the doors of schools and the gathering of the harvest. It seeks simplicity and order, and can get rather obsessed with what it is thinking or doing.  It is a natural analyzer and wants everything to be real, warts and all.

When the Moon catches up with the Sun in Virgo on September 9th, it creates a New Moon in Virgo. After that we will be even more focused on fixing what needs to be fixed, healing what needs to be healed, working harder, and making things real and manifest.

Summer Eclipse Season will pretty much end then, and it will be time to get down to reality, but also to make real all that was merely concept or idea before.

Much has happened in the world during this Eclipse Season, and now as the Sun in Virgo will tend to sober us up beginning this week, we will look from a very real place at the condition of our world, country, and personal lives.

Yet being sober and real will also help us to come up with plans to fix what has gone wrong so we can move forward in the best way.

Till next week,

Leo
