Sparks Flying and Astrology Forecast August 11-17.

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on August 10, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week starts out with a bang, as both Jupiter and Uranus change direction. A planet changing directions, either way (to direct or to retrograde), increases its energetic intensity for a few days surrounding the event.

On Sunday August 11, Jupiter goes from Retrograde to Direct, while Uranus goes from Direct to Retrograde.

Energetically,  Jupiter is uplifting, inspirational, big-picture, positive, motivating, expansive, optimistic.

Uranus in its purest form is a feeling of “breaking out” or “breaking through”, liberation,  rebelliousness, radical, revolutionary, individualistic, aware of the greater group or collective.

Both can also be very intuitive and impulsive, not usually checking in with caution or logic before launch.

Around and after the weekend, the “air” will be more clear; taking action will feel more natural; stating one’s truth will be easier and less tempered. Controls are being taken away.

I am sure you have noticed that people are more unhinged lately, and Uranus and Jupiter’s changes are assisting that process now.

Trump has always been unhinged, so it is kinda scary to envision what is will be like for him to lift off whatever or whomever still has some control of him.

USA relationships with China, Russia, Iran and also many of its allies have seriously been shredded during this current administration.

As Mars triggers planetary positions from the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo of 2017 this week, issues with North Korea and China should be in the spotlight.

Also references to Charlottesville in 2017 will be triggered by Mars in Leo, as white supremacy and culture war events are likely again.

The resulting chaos is upon us, which also includes the recent gyrations of the stock market, which  is less predictable now.

Though this breakdown of the Military/Economic Empire Complex may feel scary sometimes; at the same time rushes of new clean light containing energies are wanting to stream through.

More and more people are beginning to rise up to the challenge, and want to assist in transforming this country and world.

Do your best not to join in on the new American Civil War.  That does not mean you need to temper your passion for what you believe in, or to not have preference for a party or person you believe is best to lead our country and world.

But it does mean there is no good reason to demonize and make enemy of anyone or anything.

Yes we do seek to “defeat” the forces of the old paradigm and world.  “Nature”, the Universe, God/Goddess (whatever you believe in), is working its transformational magic all the time.

You will not witness that happening if you are caught up and swallowed up by the dramas that the media, and social media engage in. Everything is made into a contest, competition, battle, or sport.

And each political party is made into a combatant in a battle to the death.

Meanwhile our country and world are going under. Why do we not bring the best minds and hearts all over the world together to discuss the enormously important issues before us: climate change, nuclear weapons, and the sad and frightening fact that our world is in a state of separation from one another.

We have been programmed to believe that all and everyone is disconnected in a random physically and materially dominant world, one without heart and soul and deep connections.

So many are asleep as they sleepwalk through life, looking for the “leaders” to show them the way. This is the metaphor of zombies, just as the metaphor of vampires shows us there are entities (forces, energetics, frequencies) who will suck the life out of you if you do not stay strong,  self honoring and awake.

Having to be “good” and nice or guilty all the time is a disempowering paradigm that has been thrust on us by many religions, societies, and families. We are told we come into our life bad (original sin), but we can become good in our lifetime with Heaven after you are dead as the goal.

How about instead knowing you are a soul with a “rented” body living in a Universe filled with Love and Truth that can be accessed in your now life when you are aligned, in connection with All, and at the same  time true to individual Self.

The Age of Aquarius has open arms, and its “ruling” planet Uranus leads the way.

Uranus, discovered in 1781, coincides with French and American  revolutions that honor the individual as stewards of the world, not kings or queens, dictators, governments or corporations.

It is “we the people” and the world is waiting for us to take responsibility.  In connection with Spirit we are never alone and are empowered as we need to be. In connection with other citizens of our country and world collective, we are surrounded with friends and family.

Do not concentrate or live in fear about mass murderers or stock market crashes or any other horror stories.

We are here for the healing and resolutions, not to wring our hands in anxiety, panic, and despair.

Yes the planets let us know now that much needs to be released, let go of,  purged or even destroyed. And they let us know we need to have trust and faith that we are crossing a threshold into the wonders of the Age of Aquarius.

This week , at the beginning of the week we have sparks of life to awaken us and move us forward as Jupiter and Uranus change directions.  Important world events will follow this week.

Then on Thursday is the Full Moon in Aquarius at 8:29 AM EDT. Full Moon in Aquarius means that the Sun is in Leo directly opposite the Moon in Aquarius.

Sun, Venus, and Mars are all conjunct the Sun and opposite the Moon. So the power of personality is likely stronger than community at this Full Moon in Aquarius.

Overall the Leo/Aquarius Full Moon seeks to combine the individual need to be seen and to creatively express itself, with the group need to do what is best for the community or group or society.

In the USA Congress is Aquarius and executive (president) branch of government is Leo.

If they can come together to accomplish for the American people that would be great. So far they have not been anywhere near on the same page.

The USA natal chart from July 4, 1776 has the Moon in Aquarius, fairly close to where this Full Moon is in Aquarius.

USA Moon in Aquarius reflects the American inner values of equality, freedom of the individual, freedom of speech, and a Diversity within Unity higher principle.

Can we reintegrate those values back into our minds and souls? Current issues with immigration demand we get back in touch with those values.

This week will likely be filled with energy and events.  Keep your feet on the ground and your head up toward the heavens. We humans are the link between our Earth home and our connection with the stars, planets, and mystery of the Universe.

Trees are our closest likeness, as they are rooted in the Earth as its branches reach up to the Heavens.

Till next week

Leo

Beyond Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast July 28- August 3

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we experience an important turning point for our collective and personal Soul journeys.

The first part of this week we will continue to walk through the slowdown of the 4th quarter of a lunar cycle, a cycle that began July 2 at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer. The ride has been emotionally charged, especially considering family issues, but also the rights and empowerment of Women.

Since July 7, we have also been experiencing Mercury being Retrograde; and for many that has meant going back over issues that were thought dead and buried.

In that process, many have been questioning previously made decisions, viewpoints, and opinions.

Mercury Retrograde at times is like a mental rewind, a peering back into the past through our dreams, conversations, and waking memories.

This passing Mercury Retrograde has done its job if you have been loosening up on what you previously determined to be true.

And late on July 31 there is a New Moon in Leo while Mercury Retrograde grinds to a halt (is stationary), just as it shifts back into being Direct.

The Leo New Moon on the 31st gets our creative juices flowing, and begins to bring more fun and more hope into our lives.

But that Leo New Moon will also trigger the big egos of the world to come out and try to dominate.

Trump of course suffers from narcissism with his Leo Rising sign and most especially through his Mars in Leo conjunct that Ascendent.

A healthy Leo is open-hearted, shining a bright light of positivity, creativity, and fun.

Distorted and unhealthy, Leo makes everything centered around Her or His own Self.

The Leo New Moon from July 31 (at 11:12 PM EDT), will begin to trigger important events out in the world.

Swirling around in our collective consciousness since around July 2 at the eclipse:  Trump’s potential impeachment; more culture war stemming from immigration and border issues; Iran being put into a hard core enemy slot by hard liners in the USA, Britain, Saudi Arabia,  Israel, etc; democratic party debates on television; more strutting for power and control against China and Russia; and a bubbling (under the surface) economic crisis.

So as we transition this week out of Eclipse Season and Mercury Retrograde, we are as prepared as we can be for the events coming up soon in the world.

Mercury goes Direct on the 31st at 11:58 PM EDT.  We have written in the past that a couple of days either side of Mercury changing direction, can be the most confusing time in the Mercury cycle.

I am sure you will remember the November 2000 Presidential Election Day in the USA, when Bush ran against Gore.

TV station announcers were going back and forth all night between declaring winner to be Bush and declaring winner to be Gore.  This uncertainty about who won went on several weeks before Bush was declared the winner, with Supreme Court assistance.

That was of course a most exaggerated and dramatic showing of Mercury changing directions. It changed direction from Retrograde to Direct that Election Night.  We are not expecting anything near that confusing, but I do suggest you take in the potential confusion that can accompany Mercury changing directions.

And with the New Moon in Leo only 46 minutes sooner than Mercury going back Direct, we can expect an unusual day or couple of days.

The Democrat Party presidential debates happen on the 30th and 31st of July as Mercury transitions into Direct.  The Leo New Moon is in the evening of the 31st, just before Mercury goes into Direct motion.

We can expect communication miscues during the debates, some that will help determine who may eventually win.   We can also expect surprising positive performances that will shake things up even more.

As there is the Leo New Moon on the 31st, we can expect those who naturally shine brightly from their hearts to do especially well.  And we can also expect the biggest egos to come out during the debates this week.

Remember that though there is a fiery New Moon in Leo and Mercury going Direct on the 31st, it is not a time to go fast forward.  Mercury needs a week or more back Direct before you can be assured of full clarity and direction to show.

And the Leo New Moon is only the beginning of the Leo lunar cycle.  Get your motor running,  let creative ideas in, but most importantly at this New Moon in Leo – Open your Heart up wider, which also opens intuitive knowing that the logical mind cannot find on its own.

On August 1 is Lammas,  a sacred turning point in the year that our ancestors celebrated.  It was a time to celebrate the harvest and also is a time half way between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox.

Feel the energy shifting this week, at mid week and beyond.  Something will wake up inside, especially as you let your heart to open more, and to be more relied upon as you continue to go forward in your life.

If you miss magic being in your life, know that an open heart is more allowing of transformational energies to flow through your being. And that will bring the magic with it.

And often relationships seem to hold our hearts and souls captured, keeping us stuck and shut down.

But Venus in Leo square Uranus in Taurus this Friday August 2 shows some promise in opening stubbornly closed hearts.  It also shows some promise in awakening in us the need and way out of old relationship patterns.

Mars in Leo the next few weeks will trigger events that are connected to what was happening in August 2017.  That was the month that brought us the powerful Total Eclipse New Moon in Leo that travelled exclusively through the USA.

Go back to that time period in your life in order to better understand what may be happening with you now.

In the greater world,  the Charlottesville tragedy revolving around white supremacy happened; as well as North Korea war blustering; and Middle East intensity. So be aware of the USA culture war; China and North Korea conflict with USA; and issues with Iran and Israel.  Any or some of these issues will arise again before summer ends. Impeachment moves should get much stronger then also.

So overall, this week pushes us beyond and through what has been blocking our hearts and our movement forward lately.  Much wants to open up and get moving.  Holding on to the past will keep new energies and new events, and new people from coming through.

It is not easy to let go of the past in our hearts and minds- but memories will always be there for you.

Till next week,

Leo

Truth and Lies and Astrology forecast June 2-8

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 1, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

There is a New Moon in Gemini on Monday June 3 at 6:02 AM EDT.  On June 2 we are under a dark Moon, and that will also be true on the day of that New Moon in Gemini on the 3rd.

In fact new moons, signifying new beginnings, do not really start until we can see a sliver of lunar light.  That will be no later than the evening of June 4.

During dark moons, it is usually a prime time to meditate with affirmations and/or visualizations, to make strong intention of whatever is important to you at the time.

This New Moon in Gemini shows us a good time for giving, attending, creating, and planning for classes, webinars, workshops etc.  It is also a good time for reading and studies.

Gemini is “ruled” by Mercury, called the messenger of the gods; so Gemini time periods are about working with issues of communication.  Gemini loves words, so for most Gemini’s writing and talking are very important to them.

Gemini is an air sign, and as such it is in the head a lot , concentrating  on thinking and figuring out.  Air signs are also often social butterflies, seeking light and care free social interactions.  Gemini is the air sign most like that butterfly who goes from flower to flower, more so than the other two air signs Libra and Aquarius.

And Gemini needs many interests, and being that way motivates many of them to go from one thing to another,  even one thought to another, or one person to another.

When they are in their normal rhythm they are light and airy, effortlessly delivering information to others and bringing in new information too.  They are fact based and detail oriented.

The challenge for many Gemini’s is to slow down or stop the “monkey mind”, especially during meditation. It can get overwhelmed with information being collected in its mind.

It loves a good mental challenge, and curiosity is one of its motivations for learning new things. It is the questioner, and it is in its default nature to question most everything.  Sometimes that means it is challenging someone’s information or opinion, but sometimes it is just geared to ask questions for no deeper reason.

So now as we move through the Gemini New Moon this week, it is a good time to think about classes, learnings, friendships, starting something intellectually stimulating, reading a new book, or getting up the courage to speak up and communicate what is on your mind. Gemini does not usually like emotional confrontations, however.

Not long after  this New Moon in Gemini, Congress will question AG Barr and/or special prosecutor Mueller, and others in preparation for impeachment.

The Military/Industrial Complex foundation is showing immense cracks, ready at any time to begin to crumble.

The stock market went way down last week, and war cries against Iran got much stronger.  The USA trade war with China and Mexico heated up last week, as did their war of words with China on other subjects. And North Korea is back up in the Empire’s consciousness as it shows increasing animosity for the USA administration.

I say all this to show you that over the next 9 months or so, Pandora’s Box will break open with some major world event(s), ones that will change the world.

Intensity increases during an Eclipse Season,  and this one will have its first breezes of change after this New Moon in Gemini.

The first actual eclipse will be on July 2,  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer at 10+ degrees.  The 2nd eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn at 24+ degrees.

But the most powerful shake-up will occur late Autumn 2019, early  Winter 2020.  It is a huge turning point for the world. That Eclipse Season will open The Box if not yet opened.

Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn will make its only exact conjunction in January 2020, the day after a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon as Uranus goes direct that day also.  (Webinar I am giving on June 22 will talk about all that, the powerful changes in the world as a result, and a look at each participant’s chart to see how they may each be affected in their own personal life.  Noon-4:30 $120.) Write me at soulus@aol.com to sign up.

There is no way anymore that we can put bandaids on the big issues and conflicts.  They are all coming to a head, so to speak.  There are so many enlightening waves of energy filled with hope and the magic of Universal signs and synchronicities under the rock solid box of an old world’s status quo. That box is breaking open soon and dark and light will all be released together for each of us to sort through in our consciousness.  The Age of Aquarius is a creation made from it all.

This week with the New Moon in Gemini, new information will begin to make itself known.   Facts greater than all the lies and fabrications will be available to those aligned and looking for truth.

Neptune is square to the New Moon in Gemini, so there will some confusion and distortions to work through.  If you can let go and surrender your left brain need to obsessively get to the logical truth, what you need to know will unfold itself and present itself when you are ready to receive.

Each media source operates more from an agenda than from a desire for the facts and truth.   Julian Assange represents someone who has worked to get the truth of what our governments and authorities hide from “we the people”.

These “authorities” are trying to silence him or put him away. He now is extremely sick and maybe even dying. He represents freedom of the press and its duty to deliver us truth beyond the programming. Now each of us must be responsible to find these truths for ourselves.

Look closely and deeply this month for what is true and what is not, and do not let your political persuasion influence you.  This Gemini lunar cycle is mainly about the facts and communication of them. Next month the Eclipses shake things up and out of same-old, same-old.

Till next week

Leo

Lighter and Darker and Astrology Forecast May 19-25.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 18, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As the Full Moon in Scorpio leaves our awareness after the weekend of May 18-19, we get ready to come down another notch into what is real in our lives.

The last half of the current lunar cycle begins this week as we view a Moon getting darker by the minute.  At the same time as the lunar cycle darkens, the solar cycle gives us in the Northern Hemisphere of Earth more light by the minute.

The Moon darkens until June 3, as the New Moon in Gemini that day begins the process of the Moon growing once again with more light every night.

At the same time, the Sun brings more light every day until the Summer Solstice on June 21, when the Sun stops at its highest place in the sky to shine the most light of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

Symbolically, the Sun represents the conscious intent for humans to shine, create, fully express, and succeed with utmost confidence.

Symbolically the Moon represents an inner, more instinctual intent to give and receive comfort and nurturance, to protect and express inner values of care and empathy.

So this week our inner and outer worlds are moving in vastly different directions.  Our collective conscious desire is to move with “glass half full” intent to get better and better in our relationship with the world.

Our collective soul/feeling desire is to feel what is natural for us to feel, even if that means sadness, grief,  or even feeling sorry for ourselves at times.

In the “world out there” there are many challenges.  The USA is digging in against its so-called enemies: Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, China, and Russia.   The USA has enacted or is a part of sanctions on all those countries. The USA Natal Mars in Gemini is triggered in May and June by Jupiter being directly opposite in Sagittarius.

No matter what is stated as motivation against these countries, the real reason for much of the conflicts is needs for more power and control, domination, and in some cases control over natural resources like oil and natural gas.

When Trump chose Bolton and Pompeo as integral leaders in his administration, most people knew that meant war was likely to come, as both those men are known to be military hawks hankering for a fight.

We are at a big turning point in our country and world now.  The next 9 months of so will  greatly determine the path we take over the next several years in regards to economy and war.

Especially important will be the next two Eclipse Seasons- in the Summer of 2019 and the Winter of 2019/20.

The Saturn/Pluto powerful configuration is getting closer and closer now, with their only exact conjunction being in January of 2020, which is the climax of their planetary relationship at this time.  Of course Eclipses will also be happening in January 2020, as well as July 2019.

This all will have great effect on our personal lives too. I am now scheduling a webinar for Saturday June 22 from noon-4:30 PM EDT.  We will look at Saturn/Pluto, its history and effect on our human condition then and now. And I will give interpretation for each webinar participant concerning the effect of Saturn/Pluto in their own charts and lives. In this webinar we also take a peek at the next presidential election in November 2020, and an outlook on the economy and the condition of our lives going forward: fee $120 with 1 scholarship offered for those most in need. Write me at soulus@aol.com for more info and to sign up.

Also I will begin a Podcast/Radio show series on Monday June 3 at the Gemini New Moon. Summer Eclipse Season 2019 begins at that new moon, though the first eclipse will still be a month away. 

Yes we now enter a most important time here on Earth, as the condition of consciousness for each of us is most important for the direction, condition, and quality of our entrance into The Age of Aquarius.

Yes this week we have moved into the “downhill” movement of the waning half of the lunar cycle begun on May 4 at the Taurus New Moon.

That next lunar cycle begins at the New Moon in Gemini on June 3. That is when Sun and Moon are conjunct at 12+ degrees of Gemini.

This week the Sun goes into Gemini on Tuesday May 21.  As we stated, the Moon will join the Sun in Gemini creating a New Moon in Gemini on June 3.

This week when the Sun leaves Taurus and enters Gemini, our intentions begin to be more mental and social and less physical and solitary.

Gemini stirs the mind and nervous system into more activity.  Needs to communicate get stronger, which for many means more talking.   But writing can also be a means to communicate now. People tend to both take classes and create classes during Gemini time.

Gemini rhythm is “information in- information out”- just the facts- no opinions, judgments or editorializing.   That is when Gemini is purely Gemini.

Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury, the “messenger of the gods”, and it works often by showing signs and symbols and synchronicites that the Universe sends so people can see what direction to move toward and get clearer information.

The mind can go really fast in Gemini and Gemini seeks much mental stimulation and varied interests.  With not enough mental stimulation it can be bored; with too much it can be overwhelmed.

Gemini is the Twins, and as such it has two distinctly different personalities. Sometimes that may feel like the good angel and bad angel, or like Jekyll and Hyde.  But usually it is not that drastically polarized.  But two distinctly different selves do exist in some form for them.

Mars sextiles Uranus in Taurus on May 22, and that may cause some mostly minor shake-up of same-old, same-old.

In personal lives, I know most of you have been experiencing much change, and/or you can feel much change under the surface and coming soon.

The Old World has one more huge gasp in trying to bring back the past and its old Paradigm (Make America Ghastly Again).

The great hope is that it does not cause too much harm and pain during that time.

Our challenge is to not be sucked up into the black hole vortex it creates.  If we do not allow ourselves to be devoured by too much fear or hatred, we will be fine.

Keep focused on how we are entering the Age of Aquarius.  Keep meditating and getting yourself healthier and healthier. Keep remembering that Love and Truth run our Universe, and be that Love and Truth as best you can.

Till next week,

Leo

Wesak Full Scorpio Moon and Astrology Forecast May 12-18.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 11, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This is such a time of uncertainty now.  It is difficult for many to feel OK inside, as stress tries to creep in and take over.

If you are paying attention, you can see how many issues out in the world are being taken “to the edge”:  Israel/Gaza; Israel/Iran; North Korea again; Venezuela; trade wars with China and the economy;  Syria/Israel.

The current US presidential administration feels very chaotic and unpredictable, but what is much worse is that it answers to no one, certainly not the people.  Congress and the executive branch of the USA are at war with one another.  Impeachment is a real possibility.

So called liberal and conservative USA cultures are at war with one another, not truly recognizing that both are American and world citizens of the same human family.  These splits into enemy camps takes us into very potentially disastrous situations.

When you look at TV shows and movies, most are about disasters and horror and are very dark and filled with gore and death.  Even the wildly popular Game of Thrones has so much death and destruction and darkness in it.

There is no way a culture that sees and acts out so much separation and enmity between peoples based on religion, race, nationality, sexual orientation, etc. can last long. And with nuclear weapons so available now, as well as other weapons of mass destruction, we are headed for disaster if nothing changes soon.

And can you believe how many school shootings there are now?  The old world is certainly in decay, as was Rome around the time of Christ.   Ages changed from Age of Aries to Age of Pisces around that time of the Roman Empire decay.

And now we are again in crisis and decay, as Ages shift from the Pisces Age to the Age of Aquarius.

Yes most people recognize that Climate Change is real and must be reversed soon if we are to survive as a human family. But on a deeper level the real problem is about our beliefs, our stories, our priorities, our values, our paradigm for living as humans on Planet Earth and in the Universe.

The old ways and paradigm must come to an end, and for so many people there is nothing they can imagine to replace it.  For them the old world must be brought back somehow.  Hence MAGA.

Going back to the ’50s in America, so much seemed so innocent, until you looked under the rug to find abuse of African Americans, LGBTQ peoples, women, and anyone else who did not fit into that paradigm.

The Old America is run now by billionaires, mega corporations, and neocons who bully other countries and push for war against countries that have many rich resources and relatively weak militaries.

And neo-liberals have now also formed and they also want regime change of these other countries by force.  America was not invited into Syria or Venezuela, nor was it invited into Iraq or Libya, two other countries we attacked, destabilized, and destroyed.

Civilian populace was innocent, yet so many were killed by USA and western nation bombings.

And remember none of those countries attacked the USA nor threatened to do so.

We need our energies focused now not on what happened before, or on these atrocities, but instead on how we can turn things around toward Love and Truth for a new age.

People all too often now seem to care more about material needs than soul needs and heart and soul connections.

We cannot continue, as so many are doing, to just go about our lives like robots.  We have given so much of our attention to our phones and devices, to our TV and movies.  We are certainly not as connected to our hearts and to one another now.

Game of Thrones has its dark and long Winter Time and its zombie-like inhabitants who just keep coming to bring on death for others.

Metaphorically speaking we are turning into the walking dead.  We go through the motions of being vital and alive, but so many and so often we are just walking dead, unconsciously moving toward our destruction.

But it is not hopeless. We can still turn things around by cleaning out the old paradigm and the traumas we have experienced from it.

So many are now open to the Connections, to all the dots in the Universe being connected.  As we learn to stay longer and longer in the connections, we experience many synchronicities and are shown signs and symbols that show us our way.

More and more we see all in a meaningful light, everything happening for a reason.  Love grows stronger and stronger in our hearts and souls and bodies; Truth gets stronger and stronger in our minds, souls and bodies.

Fear and ego need to take a back seat in the drive down through our Soul Path.  Spirit brings us more into light.   And overall we move on our path toward more integration, as we accept our dark and light, male and female, yang and yin opposites held in union not in war with one another.

These unions indelibly show that opposites can be joined together as ONE.

This is within the new paradigm that shows us unity of opposites and becomes Diversity Within Unity, the calling card of the Age of Aquarius.

Would it not be great when Conservative and Progressive are understood as opposites that can form a relationship with one another. It is a relationship that honors the values and integrity of each, while also recognizing what unites them.   Love of the country, love of the human community, love of the Earth and Sky realms are what will take us forward together.

But truth is also important, so recognizing the  grave challenges that are moving into our world now is important too.

This week we are in the 2nd quarter of the lunar cycle, and waxing toward a Scorpio Full Moon on Saturday the 18th.

The solid calm of the Taurus Sun will be challenged by the intensely primal passions of a Scorpio Moon.

So be awake to the shifting of energies on Thursday the 16th when the Moon moves out of pleasant Libra and into intensified Scorpio, getting us ready for the Full Moon in Scorpio.

The Full Moon in Scorpio is on Saturday May 18 at 5:11 PM EDT.  Venus in Taurus is conjunct Uranus in Taurus also that day, so relationships will be in the spotlight.  Important now to balance stable and secure needs with feelings of change and transformation.

This Scorpio Full Moon is an annual affair that is also called the Wesak Full Moon.  It is said that Buddha was born at a Wesak Full Moon. Buddhists also believe that Buddha was enlightened and died on that same Full Moon in other years

The Wesak Full Moon is considered by many to be the most powerful of the year.  Meditate on that Full Moon and see what you experience.

On Wednesday May 15, just a few days before the Wesak Full Moon, Venus goes into Taurus and Mars into Cancer.

There are desires that day to find comfort and care, home and safety. Allow yourself that indulgence so you can afterwards find more energy and focus for living.

Summer Eclipse Season is about a month away from the first winds of change to be felt.

See you next week

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

Filling Up with Love and Truth and Astrology Forecast March 10-16

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 9, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week’s New Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune plus Mercury turning Retrograde, shook up the status quo and shifted gears into reverse.

Moving forward in a big way, with anything important, is highly frowned upon now.  Making big decisions is not advised; pushing forward anyone or anything not ready to be pushed is highly discouraged.

You already know that Mercury Retrograde can be like a “trickster”, playing with your mind. Everything is not as it appears to be, just as “magicians” fool us with their magic tricks or cards.

Pisces is often less clear than other signs, as it seeks to take one into other frequencies; into our imagination; into intangible realities; into escapism; into foggy soul shamanic journeys; ; through signs and symbols from hazy dreams; through magical adventures that seem so surreal.

And as the New Moon in Pisces last week came on the heels of Mercury turning Retrograde, we have been brought into another realm of consciousness whether we acknowledge that fact or not.

Added onto these planetary movements is the fact that “god of the ocean” Neptune was closely conjunct that Pisces New Moon. Neptune is the ruling planet of Pisces, and as such is the gate-keeper into soul realms that cannot be controlled by logic or rules.

All in All, some will feel like they are in the Twilight Zone, an alternative spiritual reality not measurable by scientific technique.

It is a mystic world that can only be truly appreciated through surrender, the kind of surrender of mind and ego that opens the doorway into deep meditation, dream filled sleep, or psychedelic journeying.

Of course we also have to walk through “real” life in order to go to work, pay bills, take care of kids, etc.

But we can find time to meditate, and we can shift our usual focus in order to let in energies and viewpoints from this deep soul world.

You can make intentions now, connected with Universe and Higher Self, and then let go and patiently watch inside you, around you, and in dreams for signs, symbols and synchronicities that show you a path connected to those intentions.

It can also be a good time now for positive visualization, for co-creating with Source (Universe) for what is coming to you, for what is in alignment with your Soul’s desires and destiny.

Portals can open now into new inner vistas of exploration for you;  for needed healings; for how to actualize your Higher Self’s intentions and dreams; for moving more fully and gracefully into a New Chapter of your life; for knowing more about the deeper level of our relationships; for knowing the unity and connections all around us; for deeper insights into any of our life’s endeavors or challenges.

But getting bottom line answers or conclusions may have to wait for the process to entirely unfold, bit by bit.

And April 5 can be used as a somewhat flexible marking point for finding direction and being ready to move forward.  After that energies are for action and new starts and straight forward truths.

There is a New Moon in action-oriented Aries then, but even then there are restrictive energies to face as both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn make a difficult square to that New Moon in Aries.

Answers will be more readily available and direction more discernible, but smooth sailing not likely.  There will be obstacles to contend with, challenges to be met.

Coming back to this week, we are entering the 2nd quarter of the waxing half of the Pisces lunar cycle on the 14th- with the Moon in Gemini.

This is most definitely a time when information can come in big waves, waves that may feel overwhelming at times, and perhaps confusing.

Just look at the media now- very few media hubs are searching for truth. Instead they are all too often trying to sell or communicate an agenda. Fox and MSNBC are on opposite sides of the TV news fence, and neither can be relied upon to just objectively provide facts in the search for truth.

And there are so many sources of news and opinions, most often coming up with fake or exaggerated news.

We each now need to develop our own inner connection to truth, our truth, but also an objective inner fact-finder to capture the truth.

So many sources are trying to program our minds to think a certain way, to buy a certain thing, to vote a certain way.

It is so important now to know Who you are, to accept Who you are, to be True to that Self, to deeply honor yourSelf.  The lower your self esteem and the more you dislike yourself; then the more susceptible you are to be programmed, to drink someone else’s kool-aid agenda, to be taken advantage of, to do things you would not do if you were in your integrity of being.

The sheep are always herded into being programmed.  You may be a knee jerk liberal or conservative, who does not truly think for themselves, but instead automatically thinks like everyone else in the group or party. You do not even know you have been programmed to think and vote a certain way.

So take off the uniform and think for yourself.

Carl Jung said that something like one tenth of one percent of people are truly self actualized.  The rest are Sheep being herded by governments, corporations, families, religions, etc.

“Of the people, by the people and for the people” can only be truly manifested in this world if we are mainly populated by free minds and hearts that are each part of a self actualized person.

The Diversity within Unity paradigm of the Age of Aquarius can only work if there is a plethora of humans who are self actualized and individualized.

The day before the 2nd quarter Moon in Gemini, on the 13th, we get Sun square Jupiter and Sun sextile Pluto aspects.

All in all energies will be intensifying then, but keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde and the Sun is still in “go with the flow” Pisces.

Keep mentally discipline so you do not get swept up into anything or jump to conclusions or do anything impulsively.

Keep letting the process unfold and keep looking for signs, symbols and synchronicities. Let the truth unfold as the river flows.

And yes out in the world all is still messy. Trump had a horrific week as talks with North Korea went nowhere, the stock market went downward, and old friends and business buddies went to jail.

Pakistan and India calmed down their rage for one another, but trust me when I tell you that the Middle East is going to erupt.  Israel and Iran and Palestine and Syria are getting ready for conflict.

Starting in April and through October, it is very likely that major war will erupt somewhere during that time,and the USA will get involved.  And the economy will be severely challenged then also. And both Trump and Netanyahu will be in deep trouble legally and politically.

But as this darkness gets stronger and stronger, the force of the Light will be increasing as much or more. Do releasing and purging in the dark, but also widely open your mind and heart for the Light. Let it pour through into your chakra system.

Do not let the fear from the dark take over.  So many people are awakening, so many young people are strong and determined to be a part of the transformation into an Age of Aquarius.

The good-old boys networks of privilege are coming to an end.  Avenues inside everyone will be open and letting in the truth and love that are changing the world.

Don’t get wrapped up into how it will happen logically. Let that go and instead feel the depth of change moving through us.  It will happen if we allow the old blocks in our system to break down. The old programming needs to be released.

Lay down and spread your legs and arms as far apart as possible. And then feel how surrendered you are getting- surrendered only to the Universe and the light ,love and truth pushing up against our blocks.   Let it all in as best you can. It is time now to fill ourselves up with love and truth, so when the energies shift for action we will be ready.

Till next week,

Leo
