Love and Truth and Astrology Forecast April 23- 29

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Do you now have more clarity about those relationships?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo

Land of the Free and Astrology Forecast February 5-11.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on February 4, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week is a very meaningful week as we move through our first of two eclipses this month.

For those who have been sleep walking through life in their own little bubble, it will be time to wake up this week.

It is not difficult now-a-days to get into a bubble, as drug and technology addictions tend to create protective separations from life and people.

But during an Eclipse Season, as it is now, status quo stances are broken down and consciousness breakthroughs occur more frequently.

This week, to go along with the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on Friday, Jupiter changes direction and goes Retrograde; Mercury enters Aquarius; and the Sun sextiles Uranus.

That Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is in Aquarius/Leo on Friday February 10 at 7:33 PM EST.  The Sun is therefore in Aquarius, the Moon is in Leo, and both Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aquarius make aspect to that Full Moon.

The old chapter of life will already start to seem like a distant past.

We let you know that this Eclipse Season would bring the first true challenges to the Trump adminstration’s agendas.

And now a judge in Washington state has put a stop to the Trump executive order to put a hold on immigration from certain countries.

It should become more clear than ever this Eclipse Season that the Trump presidency is a big trigger for world change.   It is also a time when more and more people will wake up and be determined to make a difference in this world.

The Aquarius/Leo Lunar Eclipse shows big egos (Leo) facing challenges from the community (Aquarius).

Jupiter and Uranus making aspect to that Lunar Eclipse bring  expansive energy (Jupiter) and transformational breakthroughs (Uranus).

Aquarius also represents a world collective, which will greatly challenge executive control by the USA President (Leo).

Iran already is letting the USA president know it will not bow down to its demands.

President Trump has Leo rising in his natal chart, with Mars in Leo conjunct that rising sign.

Please don’t get me wrong however about the sign Leo.  All people with the sign Leo strongly placed in their natal chart do not develop narcissism.

But they do demand attention.  And they also shine a bright light of hope and positivity.

The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo, and of course quite arguably the Sun is the most important planet in our solar system.  It provides warmth and light and a strong center for all the other planets that revolve around it.

Now if that Sun  had an ego it might look at itself as a great entity more important than all others.  So you can see how big the ego can potentially grow into with the sign Leo.

But if those with strong Leo placements stay in their hearts (which is their natural place) they become creative light and love spread all around.

But if they take their accolades from others into their heads and not their hearts, they can then develop monstrous egos, both positive and negative ones.

Presidents Obama and Clinton are both Sun in Leo people.

So at this Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo, balance the needs of social consciousness (Aquarius) with needs for personal importance (Leo).

Keep in mind that Leo is not lesser in value than Aquarius.   Aquarius without Leo would be like a train without an engine, or a body without a heart, or a solar system without a Sun.

The needs of the many are so important, but individual energetic expression provides the fuel for all to be energized.

Jupiter changing directions on Monday this week provides us with expansive, upward moving energy.  It gives us a bigger and more meaningful perspective to life.

Mercury leaving linear logical Capricorn for inventive “outside the box” Aquarius for around a month, provides us the ability to free ourselves from stuck places in our minds.

Mercury moves into Aquarius on Tuesday February 7.

On February 9 the Sun sextiles Uranus.  The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo and Uranus is the ruling planet of Aquarius.  So the same themes from the Full Moon prevail.

In this case the Sun is the center and Uranus is what shakes up the center.   So expressing oneself as being different and countercultural may be a result of this aspect- as well as a result of the Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo.

The new administration is trying to firm up control by the executive branch of government (Leo).  The congress (Aquarius) is a constitutional counter to that executive power.    And of course  “the people” (Aquarius) of this country are supposed to be the real power of this country.

It is really interesting that the USA natal Moon is at 26 degrees of Aquarius in the 3rd house.  The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse this week is at 22 degrees of Aquarius/Leo, so it is making a strong aspect to the USA  natal Moon.

The Moon in a natal chart represents the inner values, and in the USA we have our constitutional Aquarian values: liberty, freedom of speech, diversity in unity, and the power of the people.

So now President Trump is trying to make himself, as the top executive, the greatest power of the country.  And now the power of the people will challenge that executive power and seek to bring us back to our deeper values.

Remember that America began with a revolution of democratic values(Aquarius) against the King of England (Leo).

President Trump, who has been a powerful business executive, will be continuing to challenge the inner values of the United States by attempting to be a kind of King of America.

This coming August will bring an even more powerful eclipse: A Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo that travels all across America for the first time since 1918.

That Eclipse will be opposite the USA natal moon in Aquarius, even closer than the one this week.  Trump’s natal Mars will be conjunct that very powerful Solar Eclipse.

We will analyze that more as we get closer to August.

For this week, stay poised to move with change and to let go of old patterns and habits.  Old programmed beliefs and attitudes can be let go now and more light from the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius can be let in.

This week those who have planets in Leo and Aquarius will be most affected, and those with planets in Taurus and Scorpio will be largely very affected also.

Till next week,

Leo

Rising Up and Astrology Forecast January 29- February

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 28, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We just moved into a new lunar cycle as there was a New Moon in Aquarius on Friday January 27.  It is a stronger New Moon than usual as Mars went into Aries relatively close to the same time.

That means there is a strong movement forward into new beginnings.  If you have been putting off some decision or some task or some project or some adventure, etc.; now it is time to strongly consider moving forward with it.

This lunar cycle will be an important one, not only because Mars will be in action-oriented Aries the whole time; but also because there are two eclipses coming during the month ahead.

The first eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on February 10.  The second eclipse is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

Those eclipses and Mars in Aries promise lots of action, important world events, and a large shaking up of the status quo and business as usual.

There has been a changing of the guard from the Obama presidential administration to the Trump presidential team.

Those two administrations are very different, so the frequency and tone of government affairs has been vastly transformed.  And of course that translates into changes in the human affairs of people in our country and world.

Trump’s presidency is part of a greater movement in the western world toward nationalism.  Movement toward nationalism pushes countries toward firmer borders and toward a more restricted sense of what it means to be part of the country.

The last big wave of nationalism happened in the 1930’s.  That was when Germany and Hitler came to power.

That nationalism believed in keeping Germany’s people pure with German arian blood.

So the horror and genocide perpetrated on the Jews was part of that quite distorted form of nationalism.

And as other countries also became more nationalistic they firmed up their borders and saw those not of the same tribe or nation as enemies.  War often comes with waves of nationalism, and in the case of the 1930’s that meant World War II.

Germany was an extreme case of what nationalism can birth, as killing off a people within one’s borders is not the usual manifestation.

But you can see in the United States now a movement to eliminating Muslim influence and keeping out immigrants from Mexico by building a giant wall.

There is a movement toward elevating white caucasian influence in America and throughout much of western Europe.

Now of course there is a need to have a healthy dialogue around all this from different perspectives and opinions.

Keeping immigration legal and keeping terrorism out of a country has merit if done properly and compassionately and rationally.

Better defining of what makes a country true to its origins can be a valid consideration also.

But hatred and bigotry are never OK no matter what.

So as the Eclipse Season begins now at the Aquarius New Moon, and intensifies as we approach the actual eclipses starting on February 10; there will be a powerful emotional backlash to the recent executive orders of Donald Trump.

What we need is a rational respectful discussion of the important issues now facing our country and world, but with  the sharp split between red and blue cultures in the USA, and the growing wave of hatred and demonization of  those who are different; it is not likely to happen.

So keep in mind that Donald Trump is not ruining our country and world. That gives him way too much power that he does not possess.

He is just a part of a much larger wave of change in our country and world; and each one of us needs to stay awake and aware, needs to speak up for what we believe in, and have some faith that all is happening for a reason.

Donald Trump is not bigger than the Universe and is not more powerful than “Of the people, by the people and for the people”

The King of England lost to the revolution of the American colonies in the late 1700’s.  Nixon could not stop the 60’s revolution and was impeached as the unjust war in Viet Nam ended. The killings of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy did not stop the revolution either.

The people spoke loud and the world changed in alignment with the movement and values of the Universe.

And that is what can happen now too if we do not let our identification with being a victim take over.

We each need to honor our authentic self, and to trust that self, the Universe and our  human soul family to come together and create the Age of Aquarius.

It may have been dawning in the ’60s and ’70s, but it is now getting ready for manifestation.

Yes there are some really rough times ahead, but those rough times will bring with them much magic, much love, much awakening, and much joy from connection with each other and the Earth and Universe.

So this week begins a new lunar cycle on the way to February’s eclipses.   And Mars  now in Aries will be joined by Venus in Aries this coming Friday the 3rd.

That means spiritual warriors, both male (Mars) and female (Venus), are ready to rise up and fight for what we believe in (Aries).  This is no time to wring our hands and feel sorry for ourselves and our horrible fate with a Trump administration.

We are ready for the challenge.

On Thursday the 2nd of February is Imbolc, the sacred half way turning point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.   The groundhog is the modern representation of that time.

Imbolc was celebrated by our ancestors as an initiation time for humans.   The fiery Goddess Brigid was honored that day and is symbolic of that day.

We can use her fiery Feminine spirit now to initiate us into this New Chapter in human life on Earth.

Till next week,

Leo

Here We Go and Astrology Forecast January.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 21, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The early part of this week is mostly about processing what has been happening in our personal lives and in the greater world.   Mercury is now firmly direct and back to its normal speed; and the Moon is in its 4th and last quarter phase of its cycle.

Where are we?  What has been happening to us and our world? The early part of this week will allow us to reflect on all this.

In the greater world we can now stop and feel the reality of a Trump administration and what it means for our world and lives.  The Women’s March right after Trump’s inaugration tells us more about the new reality we are all in now.

We had been experiencing a relatively graceful time period for the last 8 years, during President Obama’s presidential years.

There were many changes, like more recognition and honoring of the LGBT community; a big improvement economically from the housing and employment crashes right before he was elected;  the nuclear deal with Iran; and Obamacare.

There was also great turmoil in the rise of Islamic State; the Arab Spring; Occupy Wall Street; Ferguson Missouri and other examples of police abuse of African Americans; the rise of Russia again; continued economic disparity between rich and all others; terror attacks in America and western civilization, etc.

But most of the time there was little drama or anger or judgmentalness from the top of the Obama Administration.

Some would say there was not enough action taken on important matters like Syria, but nevertheless there was a sense that things would not fall apart and that the “system” would stay intact and functioning.

But now it is time for bigger transformational change, for greater conflict, for a sense that the old world is truly falling apart and a new alternative world being built.

You can see this ripeness for great transformational change by looking more deeply at the Trump administration.

On the one hand he has chosen those who are quite obviously guardians of the Old World like military generals, billionaires, oil barons,  ex Goldman-Sachs executives, etc.

On the other hand he does not fit the mold of traditional USA presidents at all; he shows obvious signs of impulsiveness which could cause events that really shake up our world;  he does not comply with traditional rituals and courtesies that have kept the Old World with structure; he is committed to doing business HIS WAY to a fault; he makes relationship with those who have traditionally been considered enemies; he is looking to tear down programs like Obamacare and the Iran deal; and he is planning on moving the USA Israel center to Jerusalem which would cause great turmoil and conflict in the Middle East.

So you can see some of what is coming: a desire to keep the Old World stronger than ever before- while tearing it down at the same time.

His Gemini twin nature is quite capable of moving in these opposite directions at the same time, in a perverse way aligned with the transformational movement of the Universe.

And “we the people” of this land and western civilization in general are facing a huge transformational change in our world and in our personal lives in the years ahead of us.

We are letting go of that which represents our personal “Old World” while letting in the light of our personal “New World”.

Relationships, homes, careers, and especially belief sytems that are connected to the old world paradigm will be released.

The Universe and our deeper Souls will be unfolding to us our new lives, our new beliefs and atttitudes aligned with the New World we have entered.

And of course in the bigger picture we are being transformed to align with the Age of Aquarius and its paradigm for our evolution.

This New Chapter of our lives, lasting the next few years, will not be as graceful as the last 8 years have been.

The Election between Trump and Clinton showed us the immense split in our country. It showed nastiness and character assassination; narcissism that precludes the ability to empathize with others and other ways of being; and a fight or competition that is ruthless and without true consideration for the welfare of the community.

We are at the same time being awakened to beliefs and attitudes that will help each of us to evolve into a Truth and Love, Diversity within Unity world, where win/win is the result intended in all conflicts and competitions.

The self actualization into our authentic selves will be combined with our intentions to be in meaningful relationship with others; and to contribute to our human community while healing our Earth and making greater connection to the Universe.

These are powerful times now, and we must be ready.

This week we concentrate on reflecting and processing until Friday January 27 at 7:07 PM EST.

That is the time of the New Moon in Aquarius, which also is the time of the beginning of the Chinese New Year of the Rooster.

Early on the next day the 28th, action oriented Mars moves out of go-with-the-flow Pisces and enters forceful and active Aries.

So late this week we get the “go sign” and start the New Era.  That New Moon in Aquarius will also begin the Eclipse Season, one that will show us a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on February 10; then a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

So the go sign is strong and changes will happen fast especially in the world at large.   President Trump will be making decisions that try to undo some of the accomplishments of the last 8 years and before.

People will begin to forcefully oppose these decisions and movements at the same time.

Transformational Change is breaking open.

On a personal level the Aquarius New Moon on the 27th,  that opens the portals for the Eclipse Season, shows us Aquarian traits.

So we will be prompted to find and honor our distinctive and individualized self, even if we feel we are different or weird.

And at the same time we will have doors opened for finding our soul families.    Birds of a Feather want to flock together now.

Finding your individual truth will help you to find your soul groups.

If you continue to be what others expect or want from you, or what you think you should be; then you will not know where you truly belong. But now you have the opportunity to begin to change that old way.

So get ready to begin the New Chapter adventure.  It is Time.

Till next week,

Leo

Creating Reality and Astrology Forecast January 8-14.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 7, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Many people are feeling relieved as Mercury goes Direct on Sunday January 8 at 4:43 AM EST.  January 8 is a transition day for Mercury as it has been retrograde, then it is stationary, then it goes direct.

Sunday or even -Saturday through Monday- could be a time when things may be somewhat confusing, and communication could be more difficult than usual.

For some, clarity and direction unfold rather quickly after Mercury has gone direct; but for others a week or so is needed before all the fog lifts.

During Mercury Retrograde this time- did you experience any rewind into times and people from your past?  Did it happen just in dreams or thoughts, or did people from the past actually surface back into your life.

What is the significance of their appearing now in your life?  Have they helped you to put into meaningful context experiences or relationships that are happening now?

You can now feel more confident making important decisions or communicating something important to others.

This week there is also a Full Moon in Cancer on Thursday January 12 at 6:34 AM EST.

And it could be a rather meaningful time as Venus conjuncts Neptune in Pisces that same day, Mercury moves from Sagittarius to Capricorn, and most importantly a Cardinal Grand Cross is formed with the Full Moon.

The Full Moon in Cancer means that the Sun is directly opposite the Moon from Capricorn.  This happens at 22+ degrees of Cancer and Capricorn.

With Jupiter in Libra at 22+ degrees and Uranus in Aries at 20+ degrees, there is a Cardinal Grand Cross formed with the Full Moon in Capricorn/Cancer.

And Pluto gets involved too as it is 17+ degrees of Capricorn conjunct the Sun.  So five planets, two of them (Uranus and Pluto) being powerful transformational planets, make a strong Cardinal Grand Cross.

So for the days surrounding this Full Moon, it should be eventful and intense.

We will be pulled in 4 different directions, and it may feel impossible to intellectually make sense of issues or balance them.

Cancer pulls us into feelings, family, nurturance, and personal life.  Capricorn pulls us into having structure, discipline, boundaries.  And it also pulls us into accomplishment and career.

Uranus in Aries gets us to wake up to our needs for freedom, breaking out of stuck places, and honoring our individual authentic self.

And Jupiter in Libra inspires us to find balance, grace and beauty, while being more sensitive to relationship and the needs of others.

And Pluto gives everything the possibility of transformation through very intense and passionate interchange and expression.

Venus conjunct Neptune in Pisces turns the light of romanticizing on, while it fosters our needs to find escape from difficult situations or feelings.  It also will help us to surrender to the Universe and go with the flow.

And that is the best thing to do around this Full Moon as it is a complicated time period.

With Mercury only just getting back Direct, please question the previous truths and be discriminating of what is real and what is fake News.

With Mercury just moving back into Capricorn, there will be some help in finding bottom line reality.

Out in the world now, it is getting more and more difficult to determine what is true and what is not true.

People are spinning the truth to further their own agendas, while also with internet and social media there is a sometimes overwhelming amount of information and opinion that contradicts other information and opinion.

And now with the transition between an Obama Presidential administration and a new Trump Presidential administration; there will be a huge difference of opinion on what is best for the United States and the world and our own personal lives.

Already the Trump newly forming administration, which mainly represents red state culture, is trashing what President Obama has accomplished and stood for.  Many programs like Obamacare are in danger of being eliminated.

And many people with blue state cultural leanings are afraid and demonizing what Trump might bring to our world and country.

And we the people are being thrust into one side or the other of the split between parties and cultures.

In my mind it is best to stay out of the hatred and fear, stay out of making this a war- even of words.

Find your center, trust the Universe and your connection to your own sovereign mind, soul and body.

Do not be swayed by “peer pressure” or what you “should be” doing,saying or believing in.

Find your own truth and THE truth and stand up for what YOU believe in.

Stay as healthy as you can, and do your best to not be pulled into personal mental and emotional hells.

Trust the Process, and do not get hooked into the fear of what could or should happen.

Believe in your self and the circular cycles of the Universe.

No human made system, structure, paradigm, or agendas are greater than the Truth and Love that is represented by the Universe.

Humans are not the greatest and most powerful entity in this Universe.  It is true narcissism and megalomania to believe that.

We are grains of sand in the vastness of the Universe, and the only real danger is that some our current breed will be the dinosaurs of the future.

Donald Trump cannot control your life or destiny, only contribute to making it less comfortable and pleasing.

You, with your relationship to your own soul and the Universe, create your reality.

Will you join me in creating the Age of Aquarius?

Love,

Leo

Sacred Turning Point and Astrology Forecast December 25- December 31.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 24, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we move through a sacred Judeo/Christian time period, we are in the darkening last quarter of the lunar cycle- until Thursday December 29.  

Last week we experienced the darkest time of the solar cycle- leading up to the Winter Solstice.

This will feel like a very sad and soulful time for many people.

2016 is coming to an end, and the Presidency of Barack Obama is soon to end also.

In many ways President Obama brought us closer to an Age of Aquarius. Though the Miltary/Industrial Complex still rules, his policies brought us “friendlier” relationships with Cuba, Iran, the Muslim world and Palestinians.

He also was the first President of color and he helped to move us towardgreater inclusiveness with the LGBT community by leading the way toward cultural acceptance of gay marriage and transgender people.

Now, if looking at life from a global outer world perspective, we will in many ways seem to be moving backwards in experiencing much of the old paradigm from a dying age.

The Trump administration and nationalistic movements in many western countries bring with it more separation and greater chances of world conflicts and war.

Though I strongly believe we are metaphorically taking 2 steps backward before taking many steps forward in a few years, it is understandable that many people are feeling greater fear and anger.

But even though the outer global world feels as if it is going backwards, those of us on a spiritual path will be challenged to grow and evolve.

How do we keep love in our hearts while the world is going crazy? How do we let go of hatred and fear when leaders in the outer world are bringing us policies that bring greater danger to our environment and Earth?

How can we keep our center when leaders in the new American administration are all very wealthy and militaristic?

How do we stop ourselves from being depressed when we witness greater misogyny and prejudice, while there is more world conflict and more separation between haves and have nots economically?

Christ, who is being celebrated by many now, gave us an example of having love, compassion, and faith in a world filled with hate, corruption, and injustice.

The beginning of the Pisces Age was begun around the birth of Christ with its fish symbols.  This birth happened just a few years after the births of Buddha and Lao Tse, and a few years before Mohammed, all signature figures of the Age of Pisces.

Though the messages of these spiritual masters was largely diluted and corrupted by churches in their names during the Pisces Age, it is incumbent on each us to resurrect and deeply own in our consciousness the essence of what each of these people represented.

The many faceted and mysterious great Goddess is an important part of the Age of Aquarius, and as she energetically joins with the spiritual masters of the Age of Pisces, we have our spiritual foundation for the Age of Aquarius.

But they are not above us in hierarchy in an Age of Aquarius.  They are us, integrated deeply in each of our hearts and souls.

And now that is our inner work: evolving spiritually in a toxic world, to be “in the world but not of the world”.

At the same time, we begin our outer work of planting seeds of change for the outer world. We will participate in protests, gatherings like the Million Woman March on the day after Inauguration Day for Donald Trump, and civil disobedience as was shown by Martin Luther King and Ghandhi.

We must each find our way to seeing the bigger picture and commiting to a New Age regardless of who is president or who is ruling the world.  Who do you believe runs this Universe? Is it Caesar of the material world or the energies of Love and Truth?

This week we experience the darkening Moon until December 29 at the New Moon in Capricorn at 1:53 AM EST.

That same day brings us the liberating, awakening energies of Uranus as it changes directions from Retrograde to Direct. Uranus, arguably more than any other planet, signifies change.

So there will be a feeling surrounding the 29th of new beginnings and big change.

The New Moon in Capricorn shows us the beginning of a greater sense of responsibility, loyalty, groundedness, and needs to accomplish.

The Sun is always in Capricorn on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day when many people make their resolutions. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn which rules Time.  Capricorn is also about plans, commitment, and discipline, which are a big part of resolutions.

Uranus changing directions often feels like radical change and revolution.

So this would then be a great time to make a commitment (Capricorn) to revolution and transformational change (Uranus).

I would also not be surprised by big world events around this time.

On New Years Eve, Mars will be conjunct Neptune.

Mars is action, force, and will.  Neptune as God of the Ocean is deep soul and feelings.  It is the inner spiritual world as ruling planet of Pisces.

It also rules alcohol and drugs.  So be very careful how much you use those to bring in the New Year 2017.

Neptune is also letting go, going with the flow and surrender.  So Mars’ force will be greatly diluted by Neptune.  So it is best not to force issues or agendas, and instead to be flexible and trusting of energies and realities beyond our controls.

till next week when we will look at the year ahead.

I will put out a YouTube video soon after the first. I also intend to host an ongoing streaming radio show soon also. More on that later.

Combining the Dream with Reality and Astrology Forecast December 4-10

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are slowly leaving the year 2016 while we go through darker days leading to the Winter Solstice. People are now coming down from a very intense and tumultuous presidential election process.  And the Obama Presidency will soon be in our rear view mirrors.  That is very sad for many people.

So these events all tend to bring us to into deeper feeling states, a sense of endings, sadness, and grief.  The movement toward Winter Solstice can also bring feelings of being alone, even if people are around.

A good way to handle these deeper feelings is to find time to let them in without distraction or judgment, to meditate, to be in nature, to watch a sad movie or listen to music.

If fear wants to enter your consciousness too during these times, do your best to let it go as fear can turn naturally sad feelings into darker emotions like despair.

You do not want to wallow in painful feelings at this time, but instead to listen to your soul and its needs for nurturance and love.

To counter the endings and dark days leading to Winter Solstice, we just experienced the New Moon in Sagittarius, and we are hopefully feeling some joy getting ready for the Holidays.

New beginnings happen as we gradually turn to more light after the Winter Solstice, and we also bring in a new year 2017, and a new government administration with a new President.

Yes we will be entering a whole New Chapter of our lives, which would be happening no matter who became President.

The changes over the next several years will be dramatic, as we cannot have the transformation we need without such deep change.

How can we enter an Age of Aquarius with such distrust of one another, such control of our lives by the Military/Corporate/Governmental system?

As we have written before there is a groundswell of movement toward more nationalism, a tighter sense of national identity, a keeping out of immigrants and those who are different or alien.

Would it not be a perfect lesson for us all if extraterrestrial aliens made a showing on our planet for all to see?  This would likely join all those who are earthlings in family, no matter race, religion, nationality, or sexual orientation.

This could happen over the next several years and would be a great trigger of transformation into the Age of Aquarius, into a world of Diversity within Unity.

During the Obama years there was movement toward accepting greater unity between countries like with the Iran deal and the openings with Cuba.

There was the movement also toward more inclusion within the USA as marriage rights were legalized for gays and lesbians.

But our internal divisions were also highlighted as we saw African Americans still looked down upon by some in society in the form of some police brutality and murder.

The hatred and brutality toward the police and hence society was then seen in subsequent attacks and killings of them.

And then the Presidential Election process showed us how much more work needs to be done before we have a unified yet diverse nation.

This movement toward nationalism now seems to me a backlash against the perceived globalism and inclusiveness of the Obama years.

Were middle and lower income USA- mainly white citizens- left out of the inclusion? They seem to feel that way from evidence in the election process?

Has a unified world been happening too fast for some, as they fear “globalism” and a dissolution of some people’s and culture’s core identity?

Is nationalism a natural movement now to reclaim that core identity for Europeans and others?  Is that nationalsim, defined for some by keeping people from different cultures, like Muslim- out of countries?

Or is this nationalistic movement a dangerous backlash that will hold back the tide of an Age of Aquarius?

Perhaps the colonization of other countries and cultures by European countries and cultures has caused hatred and rage.  The domination of Native cultures and the slavery of Africans is part of this hatred and rage.  Standing Rock in the USA is a good example of the lingering effects of this domination.

Do you believe we can find a healing between the dominators and dominated? Have not all cultures and countries at one time or another been the conqueror or the victimized?

Is not the real issue – that all of us are living under a toxic paradigm that creates enemies and perpetrators and victims?  That promotes competition for resources and a world of haves and have nots?

That sees some as winners and privileged, and some as losers who are fated to accept much less?

Does this paradigm not also encourage humans to think of one country or religion or person as superior, while another is less or inferior?

To truly evolve into a world of Diversity within Unity there can be no such belief system, but instead one that values equality and honors the intrinsic value of one as worth as much as another.

We will need very big and important events on this Earth to shake up the old paradigm and open the portals into the New Age.

And the Trump administration and Brexit and the nationalistic movements now in places like France and Italy- will bring with it the conditions that will help with the breakdowns and breakthroughs that are necessary to transform into an Age of Aquarius.

No it will not be all be pretty and it will often look as if we are going backwards; but somehow we will learn we are all one family, diverse but unified.

And this week shows us the downs of the darker days and the ups of a Sagittarius lunar cycle, especially so now as we are in the waxing half of that cycle.

Also on Wednesday the 7th Venus leaves upright and accomplishment oriented Capricorn for unusual and  socially conscious Aquarius.  It is time to loosen up in your heart and in your relationship orientation.

On the 9th and 10th the Sun sextiles Jupiter, then conjuncts Saturn.

It is time to marry or integrate your positive outlook and your more realistic assessment of what is possible.

Till next week,

Leo
