Breaking Away and Astrology Forecast February 10-16

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we passed through the New Moon in Aquarius this last week, we effectively put an end to Winter Eclipse Season 2019.

This coming week, still “climbing upward” through the waxing half of the current lunar cycle, we experience a powerful and liberating planetary combination of Mars conjunct Uranus at the last degree of Aries (29+ degrees).

Last week, after the Aquarius New Moon on the 4th, the first winds of this Mars/Uranus conjunction were blowing in.

Events, that are a direct result of the recent eclipses, will be ready to enter our world, both personal and collective.  The next few months will be filled up with important and life changing wake-up calls and motivations to push our lives forward.

The Mars/Uranus conjunction, which we began experiencing last week, brought many difficulties in relationships.  Mars/Uranus in Aries is very independence minded, action oriented, and motivates one to be true to Self sometimes at all costs.

Any boxes you are in, especially boxes that have severely limited your independence and freedom, will want to break open.  Action that you have been putting off will be triggered for movement forward.  Relationships that have tried your patience and your ability to retain compassion, will be severely tested.

Desires for liberation and “breaking out” will open up more in each of us.

And any boxes you have been pushed into or pushed yourself into will be cracking open.

This Uranus/Mars conjunction is exact on the 12th, overnight into the 13th; but its effects will be felt all week long.

You may be challenged to be empathetic in relationships, as this Mars/Uranus conjunction tends toward the needs of Self more than “others”.

Co-dependence and relationship patterns that enable people to stay stuck, will be threatened as well.

This conjunction happens at 29+ degrees of Aries, so it triggers by trine the important Total Solar Eclipse (that travelled across the USA) in August 2017.

Remember the passion for war between North Korea and the USA then? Remember the violence in Charlottesville Virginia that month, violence that felt like the American Civil War in the late 1800’s? This had a strong racial element to  it, with marches by KKK and neo nazi’s.

Now this month there is a second meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un; and Virginia has been facing racial issues with its Governor this month.

But there is another conflict going on that is not directly related to those issues, but is beginning to have the same passion for war. It is not so much with North Korea yet, but with Venezuela now.

Venezuela has the world’s largest supply of oil reserves and is a weak country militarily.  It is now in the crosshairs of the USA military as it is going through a coup attempt against its elected President Maduro.

The USA and some European countries are firmly backing the opposition leader who has already declared himself the new president. This is obviously an attempt to control Venezuela, as was previously done in many countries by the USA and other colonialist nations.

And most recently Iraq, Syria, and Libya have been invaded or helped to destabilize by the USA.

Phony reasons for invasion are made up, like WMDs in Iraq, chemical attacks by Syrian government in Syria, etc.

Now some countries will claim to be saviors for the Venezuela people.   Many new leaders in the USA see this old pattern coming back up again and want no part of the regime change that is being set up by the USA and some western countries.

Besides the Total Solar Eclipse button being pushed by the Mars/Uranus conjunction this week, the USA natal Mars at 21+ degrees of Gemini is being opposed by Jupiter in Sagittarius now.

Important USA military and police actions have occurred when the USA Mars is activated.  And the assassinations of JFK and MLK both happened when that USA natal Mars was triggered.

Remember that the USA Military and Economic Empire is in the process of huge transformation now and through the early 2020’s.

In fact the USA natal Pluto in its 2nd house at almost 28 degrees of Capricorn (which symbolically is the Military/Industrial complex) is being activated by the square of the Mars/Uranus conjunction in Aries this week.

Israel, Syria, and North Korean planets are being activated by that Mars/Uranus conjunction now too. And Venezuela’s Jupiter and Pluto are being triggered by the Jupiter transit this week.

In May/June this year Jupiter, accompanied by Mars in Gemini, will again hit that same 21+ degree of Gemini.

Whatever happens this week, and overall in February, will give us strong clues of what will happen in the near future to the Military/Industrial Complex of the USA.

This means big transformation in this New Chapter of life, on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortex, who is growing by leaps and bounds after being elected to the USA House of Representatives, is attempting with others to present a New Deal for the future USA.

She and other House leaders put out a new Green Deal, which shows the potential for combating Climate Change, providing health and education for all Americans. And part of the solution is presented as higher taxes for the wealthiest of people.

Some inclusion of Socialism in the USA is said to be needed to make the New Green Deal work.

And it is no mere coincidence that Venezuela is categorized as being a socialist country, as we prepare to tear it down.

Europe already has health care for all, and we in the USA already have “socialistic” programs like Medicare, and government funded public schools, police departments and fire departments.

Transformation is expanding and accelerating.  In December 2020, at the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, we will find an open portal to the Age of Aquarius.

This is only a month or so past the Presidential Election in November 2020.

Much will change before then, in our world and in our personal lives.

This week there is the Mars/Uranus conjunction, then the next day Mars leaves Aries and enters Taurus, where it will stay till late March.

Mars in Taurus will make what has been opening up for us real, grounded, and solid. It brings the energy of manifestation.

Let the energies of liberation, truth telling, independence, and self-concern into your life strongly this week.  But stay aware of your relationships too.  Do not “throw the baby out with the bath water”.

Do your best to preserve healthy relationships. Instead of abandoning those relationships, try instead letting go of the old dynamics and patterns that have been harming your relationships.

We are ready now to go forward toward our new normal, having lost sight of the old normal. It has been difficult for many lately- being in this kind of purgatory or limbo.

But now energies are accelerating for real change and movement forward.  Hitch a ride.

See you next week,

Leo

Power of Eclipse Transformation and Astrology Forecast January 6-12

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 5, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

On Saturday January 5 at 8:28 PM EST we experience the 1st of 2 important eclipses this month.  It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.  Both Saturn and Pluto are in conjunction with this eclipse, bringing an even more powerful energetic intensity to the event.

Though the energies will be at their greatest intensity on the 5th and the 6th, important events may not flow for days, weeks, and even months. But more likely many events will happen the over the next few weeks.

What is important to observe are the events that have been swirling in our lives since early December at the New Moon in Sagittarius, which opened up Eclipse Season Winter 2018/19.

In your personal life since early December: what have you been experiencing or feeling or watching? What new challenges have appeared?  What opportunities have been offered to you? What fears have leaked into your psyche? What old patterns have you seen try to come back into your life, relationships, and/or consciousness?

What new ideas have you recently received? What important decisions need to soon be made? And most importantly at the Capricorn New Moon,  what are you getting motivated to build or rebuild, restructure.  What new projects do you plan to start or bring more fully forward?  What do you want to manifest or accomplish?

And what steps are necessary to help you move toward your goals. What kind of discipline do you need to get where you want to go, or do what you want to do in fulfilling your purpose?

This Solar Eclipse in Capricorn, with grave Saturn and lord of the underworld Pluto attached, is powerful in its “intention” to destroy whatever is ready and needs to be extricated from your consciousness and life.

You cannot run away from time marching on in the “real” world; and we do need to be a part of that real world so we can make the contributions necessary to assist in our collective human voyage into a New Paradigm and Age.

Hard decisions need to be made soon, new directions soon need to be known.

January hosts another eclipse on the 20th/21st of the month: a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo.  

So expect this eclipse month to shake things up, but at the same time show us what is real and substantive and needed.  Superficial and trite will not fare well most of this month.

Breakthroughs and/or breakdowns are more likely than usual now at the eclipses.  We are deeply transforming our consciousness, our lives, and our country and world.

Believing and having faith in the Universe and Universal cycles and symbols helps us better navigate the changes and transformation now upon us.

Stop searching for normal to come back. The old normal is gone now, and a new normal has not shown herself fully yet.

To add to the power of the current eclipse, Uranus changes direction from retrograde to direct on January 6, the day after the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn.

Planets in the process of slowing down to change directions push their energy and meaning into our consciousness and life.

Uranus is about “breaking out of boxes”, breaking chains of control in order to be more liberated. It is strong winds of change, individuality and or weirdness, being contrary, being different, being about social change, community, rebellion and revolution.

As Uranus going Direct closely follows the Solar Eclipse, we are on the precipice of important, needed change and transformation. 

The Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is of course a new moon, which means new beginnings. Yet being in Capricorn that suggests the change is slow and deliberative.  Saturn as part of the New Moon Eclipse’s signature suggests what is happening cannot be escaped or evaded. 

Pluto as part of the signature suggests deep inner exploration. But it also suggests deep purging and releasing, and a destruction of old structures that have lost heart, spirit and soul.  Capricorn, Saturn and Pluto do not move things fast forward.

But Uranus does.  Uranus is about change, sometimes drastic and sometimes quite surprising change. 

Also now Mars is in fiery early Aries, its favorite sign;  so there is energy for moving forward, taking action, making new starts, and boldly having the courage to be true to oneself and what one believes.

And with Jupiter in its favorite sign- fiery Sagittarius, there is a growing need for having more faith, bringing back joy and inspiration, and taking new adventures.

This week began  a new lunar cycle at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn which reaches “climax” at the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo, and ends at the New Moon in Aquarius on February 4.  That Aquarius New Moon also effectively ends this Eclipse Season.

So in the greater world one can expect some destructive energy in the Capricorn New Moon Solar Eclipse, which is best used to gain deeper insight,  facing inner demons, and releasing what no longer has anymore life and spirit.

At the same time Uranus brings strong winds of change, and a need to break away from what or whom keeps us captive.

So all in all this week should bring us further decay and destruction of the old paradigm.

But Uranus, and in a lesser way, Mars and Jupiter; bring us people wanting to break away and be free of controlling and dominating people.

The government shutdown likely ends close to the Solar Eclipse and Uranus changing winds.

The stock market, after a short break last week, likely continues in its downward spiral.

War drums in Israel and the Middle East sound more aggressively.  China and North Korea get more fed up with Trump and by association the USA.

And the more and more apparent Russian collusion with the Trump family will likely show us a likely road to impeachment before the end of this lunar cycle.

Much will be coming down soon in our world, as we transform into a Diversity within Unity Age of Aquarius.

We need a new world economy that is fair to all.  We need to break down the old Military systems of this world and all their Weapons of Mass Destruction. We will see the Military Industrial Complex drastically transform over the next few years.

Time for each of us to decide in a real and grounded way: Would we be better off letting our Earth and World stay where it is, even with the corruption, inequality, power abuse, privilege to the few, disconnections from each other and from the love, truth and knowledge that all is connected and meaningful in this world.

Or do we rather choose a powerful world transformation that could get very ugly and destructive; yet at the same time deliver us into an Age of Aquarius that keeps our human family together in unity with the Earth, each other, and with all life in our Universe.

Much deep transformational work will benefit from the planetary movements this week.   As you release the living dead components of your life now, positive attitudes and beneficial changes will erupt in your consciousness and life.

The power of change accelerates this week, both inner and outer change.  Let go and let life take you to your higher destiny.

Till next week,

Leo

As Above, So Below and Astrology Forecast September 23-29

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we enter the annual portal into Autumn here in the Northern Hemisphere.

 The Autumn Equinox is on Saturday September 22 at 9:54 PM EDT.  As always, that means that the Sun moves into Libra at that Equinox moment.  The Sun stays in Libra for 30 days.

Two days later, on September 24, the Moon catches up to the Sun from its opposite position.  So the Moon in Aries opposes the Sun in Libra to form a Full Moon at 10:52 PM EDT.

Autumn Equinox is a time when light and dark minutes are equal.  That means yin and yang, “male” and “female” are also equal.

Then right after that Autumn Equinox moment of equality- dark, yin, “female” energy starts growing in relationship to the dimming energies of light, yang, and “male”.

At Winter Solstice dark is at its zenith.  Then at Spring Equinox we have equality again, but with light, yang energies beginning to increase.

Autumn Equinox symbolizes a time of year when we begin to know that darker, colder days are coming.  It is a time when personal striving and ambition begin to feel less important than relationships and social matters.

On a deep level, mortality can be felt as more real as darkness begins to grow.  We seek companionship to help us through the night.

And Libra brings us the Goddess of Relationship- Venus, which is the “ruling” planet of Libra.

Libra finds relationship and relating as more important than individual needs for independence and alone-time.

Libra is the scale of balance, always sensitive to equality and fairness as a result.

Libra is the master of diplomacy and mediation, able to see both sides of an issue.  As such it can have a really difficult time making decisions. Its ability to balance contributes to its talent at finding symmetry, which aids in its talent to balance colors, which aids its talent at creating beauty.

At the Full Moon in Aries two days later on the 24th, the Sun in Libra seeks relationship and at its best is very into the “other” person.

But the Full Moon has the Moon in Aries, and Aries seeks independence, being true to self, and taking care of personal needs and desires.

So at this Full Moon in Libra/Aries, it may be very important to balance doing what one wants to do for oneself,  with doing what someone else wants or what is best for the relationship.

Venus rules Libra and Mars rules Aries, so peace or war, connection or conflict may be decided personally and globally around the time of the full moon.

Saturn is also in aspect to this Full Moon, making close square to both Sun in Libra and Moon in Aries.

So if peace or war- or Female way  or Male way- cannot be decided, there will be a hand of fate or time that comes into play to make the decision.

Look at the Kavanaugh/Ford congressional proceedings to be reflective of these planetary movements.

Also this week Pluto is slowing down in order to go from Retrograde to Direct on Sunday the 30th of September.

That means that especially toward the end of this week intensity increases, passions are stirred, power struggles are more likely, and energies for transformation are stronger.

We are solidly beyond Summer Eclipse Season now, yet we are still in waiting for events that are developing as a result of that Eclipse Season.  Watch Syria/Middle East, Korea, and China trade to come front and center this Autumn.

Saturn makes its last pass of the USA natal Venus and Jupiter this Autumn. Mars and Jupiter make an important conjunction and square to the USA natal Moon this Autumn too. Important shifts for America are happening.

Saturn made its first pass to the USA Venus and Jupiter in January/February when Winter Eclipse Season was happening. The stock market reached a new high before falling dramatically then.

And last week the market reached a new high, higher than that previous high last January.   Another Eclipse Season has passed, and now Saturn goes back to where it was back in January/February.

Chances for a dramatic market drop are great again this Autumn.

For your personal life, remember we have entered a New Chapter of our lives.

Most have not fully adapted to this New Chapter yet.  There is still a purging of the old stories, traumas, and energy patterns from the Old Chapter.  There is still a “not-knowing” of what this New Chapter is all about.

We are caught between worlds, so to speak, no longer a part of the past, but not yet fully connected to our new path.

So living in the moment is more important than ever, allowing the processes of nature, your higher self, and the Universe to play out.

This makes trust and faith especially important now.

And horrific past personal events can make having trust and faith very challenging.

Keep in mind that there is a “higher/deeper Source” that is always there in the best interest of your soul and spirit.

It is true that surrendering to that Source takes ultimate ego control away from you.  But ego control keeps you stuck when it is time to grow and change.

Trust that Source and watch your life gain wings to fly through this transition time in your life.

Allow the Sun to go down now at the Sunset time of Autumn Equinox this week. Surrender to Nature and allow your soul to go down and yin-ward with it.

All is in Divine order. It our fears that see differently. The Earth and Heavens are connected and working together.  It is our fears that see differently.

“As Above/So Below” is metaphysical truth and Astrology is its translator.

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

Continuing Eclipse Season Journey and Astrology Forecast August 12-18

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 11, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

All three eclipses of Eclipse Season 2018 have now been experienced.  Nevertheless, Eclipse Season remains strong in our personal and collective lives for a month or so.

Mercury and Mars are still retrograde, so all the needed information and experience have not been received yet.  Making big decisions and starting important projects are dependent now on what is still to be processed mentally, spiritually, and emotionally over the next month ofrso.

The 3 eclipses have shaken our lives, but what it all means is not yet fully determined.

Events that will result from the eclipses are still coming our way. The next six months or so will carry events that are most important for us all.

Much of what happens in the world in the next 6-8  months will be intense.  The Middle East is hot now; North Korea is hot again.

The current USA presidential administration has enacted policies that are beginning to isolate the USA from the rest of the world, including from its traditional allies like Canada and Europe.

The economy is much more fragile than the statistics that say it is strong. The next 6-8 months will show us more economic truths.

The culture war in the USA, which became more out in the open in Charlottesville last Eclipse Season 2017, will heat up again.

Our world is on the brink now, and the next 6-8 months will show us just how deeply we are entrenched in most challenging transformation.

Our human family all too often needs to be taken to the edge before it takes anything really seriously enough to make deep changes.

Weapons of Mass Destruction issues, Climate Change, an unfair economy, survival of the fittest mentality, rampant consumerism, and sexual and power abuse are all needing to be more seriously transformed into healthier ways of being for our human family.

The next 6-8 months should show us in a very real way what is urgently needing to be addressed.  World events will be challenging.

In personal lives, the New Moon Eclipse in Leo is energizing us to move forward, especially after Sunday the 12th.

But it is not time yet to go fully forward as some things still need to be figured out.   After Mercury goes back Direct on August 19 at 12:25 AM EDT, clarity will want to begin forming.

But Mercury will not be back to speed for another week or so after that, so you may have to wait a while longer before you know what to do.

And that times well with Mars Retrograde.  Mars Retrograde is a time to go inside and find out what you really want and what actions need to be taken.

Mars goes back Direct on August 27 at 10:05 AM. After that, knowing what you want and where you want to go will begin to get more clear.

Give Mars another week or 10 days after that before you may be absolutely sure what to do.

So by the time Saturn goes Direct on September 6, systems will be pretty much a go, but even more so after September 9 at the Virgo New Moon.

That is also a good marking point for the end of Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

Out in the greater world by that time, we should know much better where the Mueller investigation is headed.   Do they have enough ammo to go after Trump?

Also after Mars goes Direct, Mars being the god of war, countries like Israel will know more about the brewing conflicts it has with Iran and the Palestinians.

And the USA and North Korea will know more about where they stand with one another too.

And the tariff wars with China and sanctions against Russia, Iran and others will show more clarity concerning what happens next in each regard.

The world economy is also beginning to transform and it is so also in the USA.

As Saturn goes Direct on September 6, it has a journey in opposition to the USA natal Venus and Jupiter in September, October and November.

This is when the stock market and economy will be most susceptible to crashes or down-falls.

Things will not go back to “normal” anymore.  The old “normal” is gone. We are going forward into new horizons. And during this process a new normal will be formed.

Now can be a difficult time because the old chapter is gone and the new chapter has not fully formed yet. That can feel very insecure.

Others however may feel things have not been moving forward for them.  They feel trapped or stuck. They know they want to be liberated from the old ways, but they see no clear path forward yet. Or it feels very risky to move out of the stuck place.

Keep alert and present for signs and open doorways to getting out of the old pattern. Look and investigate options while Mercury and Mars are Retrograde.

Often times, the answers are options we have not previously considered. Open your mind and heart to the possibilities you have not previously considered.

Magic is alive for those who believe, so allow the wands of the Universe to pass over your heart and life.   You may be surprised.

Yet remember the old Arabic saying which paraphrased is something like, “trust Allah, but remember to tie up your camel”.

So yes belief and faith are important, but also keep your feet in the real world, proactively and  practically involved in your process of change.  Believing in magic is not about being passive in a fantasy world.

Synchronicity and signs from the Universe come to those who are aligned with their deeper soul and the Universe, and are also committed to their personal transformation and soul journey.

You can stay in the energy of the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo for a few days after it passes.

Mars in its Retrograde journey now goes from Aquarius to Capricorn on the 12th, allowing your search for what you truly desire to feel more real, directed and under your control.

When it goes back Direct on the 27th it will still be in Capricorn.

Later this week, on the overnight from the 18th to the 19th, Mercury goes back Direct.  Keep in mind that the 18th and 19th may feel kind of weird sometimes, with possibly a foggy mind, as Mercury is in transition from Retrograde to Direct.

Resist desires to jump to conclusions; let the process play out.

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer and Astrology Forecast July 8-14

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 7, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Powerful and gusty winds are gathering now, so to speak. We are getting ourselves ready for the upcoming stormy eclipses.  There are 3 of them this summer .

The first one is this week on Thursday July 12 at 10:48 PM EDT.   It is a partial Lunar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer.  At the same time, Guardian of the Underworld Pluto will be making an almost exact opposition to that eclipsed New Moon.  The New Moon is at 20+ degrees of Cancer, while Pluto will be at 20+ degrees of Capricorn that day: a potential perfect storm.

The sign Cancer is an archetypal Mother, of the Divine Feminine,   It can be very nurturing and protective, with desire to take care of others.  It must, however, make sure not to hover over with over-protectiveness.

By contrast Pluto in Capricorn is a powerful force penetrating deeply into the core of something or someone, and making things passionate and Real. It must make sure to not be “too real” or destructive. But it does need to be destructive enough to put to rest a dying Chapter of life; and that makes room for a Phoenix to rise up with new life.

So this Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer this week is like a strongly protected  cocoon or womb. And Pluto in Capricorn is like a ruthless energy that wants to destroy the protective shell that has held back spirit, life and passion.

It is soon time to begin the process of leaving the Garden of protection, to cut the umbilic cord, to  rise up with the dawning.

Pluto sitting  opposite this Solar Eclipse in Cancer will provide a reality check for our individual lives, our families, and certainly the United States.

That which is outliving its intended life span,  whether that is a soul, an object, and most importantly a passing chapter of one’s life, will be challenged to let go and allow the death which precedes the birth.

If a couple has finished raising their child, who is now ready to embark on their life journey, they now are in a transition between two Chapters of their lives.

And so it is best if they look to see if there is a new “contract” to create a continued life together- or not.

In the greater world, we are experiencing a death of the old America, contrary to the MAGA culture that believes we will return to a time that has passed us by quite naturally.

That death is not going to be any easy one, as some of  the “guardians” of the old world will lie, cheat, and steal in order to keep the old country and world paradigm alive and with continued privilege.

No matter how we view the people from the MAGA world, we need to listen, not dismiss and feel hatred for.

We do not need to build a world that will then abuse power the same way. it has been.  White men, corporate ways, etc. are not the enemy.

The “enemy” is the part inside each of us that unfairly judges others, who are different than us,  and seeks to make some people better or worse than others.

So now, early this week we are in the waning part of the lunar cycle. It is a time to let go of what we need to let go.

Last quarter Moons, especially when close to the New Moon, are perfect times to release and let go.  What are you ready to shed in your life, what has outlived its purpose?

While still in the last quarter Moon phase, Jupiter changes from Retrograde to Direct Tuesday July 10.

You should get an energetic boost from this, even before the Solar Eclipse New Moon on the 12th.

Jupiter in Scorpio tends to expand into more passion and intensity, igniting one’s deeper soul and instincts. Just be careful not to set yourself up for any abuses again or to be abusive yourself.

Scorpio is power, and Jupiter in Scorpio can certainly help one to be more empowered and passionately assertive.

That Jupiter movement to Direct will expand Jupiter’s influence, yet the main course is still the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer.

Be careful to make boundaries around your emotions, not to lose your center and integrity.

The culture wars have been heating up, and will certainly boil over during Eclipse Season.

When you look at the people in leadership roles in our country and world it looks pretty bad.

I know it feels frightening sometimes to contemplate the old world and its economy crashing and burning. Would you choose instead keeping this world Trump wants to build?

What if crash and burn is the only way we can rid ourselves of selfish ego driven leaders and soul dead institutions and people, and can transform our human condition, our environment, and our way of treating one another, would you want it that way?

We are looking potentially at a great amount of chaos if all falls down. And if it doesn’t, the tyrant loving president of the USA may build a walled-in America that would be really difficult to transform. And it would become a military/corporate world even worse than the current military/corporate world.

We are at a major American and world crossroads.  One way or another we are on the precipice of major American and world transformation.

Israel, Palestine, North Korea, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Syria are lands that are in  danger and in flux. So much is coming to a head now in these places.

The economy, with over priced bubble homes, poor health care programs, school debt that is really depressing for many,  and rampant greed, needs huge change.

And much will shake up during Summer Eclipse Season.

Keep up the meditation so you can stay connected and centered during this Eclipse Season.

Have you noticed how veils are being lifted in consciousness,  and how visitors, apparently from other dimensions, are sneaking into meditation more and more?

We are not merely witnessing the Fall of the Empire.  We can also open our hearts and minds to other realities, realities aligned with the Age of Aquarius we are moving into together.

If we do not let fear, hatred, cynicism, and politics keep us down, we allow ourselves to open doors and windows into new consciousness and new possibilities.

Be discerning who you spend your time with. Do they really see you and appreciate you?  Do they suck your life spirit like a vampire?  Do they constantly pull on you to give them what they want from you?  Do they make fun of your spirituality?

It is important we each protect ourselves from toxic energy.

Take the ride of this Summer Eclipse Season 2018.  Keep yourself centered inside and open to what your soul and the Universe wants to show you.

Till next week,

Leo
