Activating the Force and Astrology Forecast March 31-April 6

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Many people I have talked with recently tell me March’s Mercury Retrograde was really difficult for them.

Yes there was the usual disorientation and confusion of  minds,  some technology snafus, re-connections with people or events from the past,  difficulty in making decisions or knowing what direction to move in, and just plain old difficult.

In the greater world, the Mueller Report was finished and presented to the Attorney General during the last few days of Mercury Retrograde;  but none of it has been made public so “we the people” cannot see the truth of it nor be able to come to our own conclusions.

It certainly looks on the surface as if Trump has been cleared of any serious crimes or illegal activities.

And maybe that is the final word on the matter, but I think not.  My 30+ years of professional Astrology work and study has shown me that Mercury needs to get back to speed before we will feel a full sense of clarity and know what direction issues are moving toward.

Next weekend, after the New Moon in Aries on Friday the 5th of April, fogs of mind should be lifted to a large extent.  And we will be closer to Truths.

Most of this week, we are moving down through the last quarter of the lunar cycle, a cycle that began on March 6 at the New Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune.  That was just a day after Mercury went Retrograde on March 5.

Those two planetary events showed us much inner exploration would be needed, and that clarity and direction would be at a premium for awhile.  Neptune, Pisces, and Mercury Retrograde energies have demanded we let go of mental controls and of strict agendas; so we can instead penetrate deeper into our hearts and souls.  And of course heart and soul realms bring more of a sense of mystery, and a need to surrender our minds and controls.

Then on March 20, the Sun moved into Aries at Spring Equinox, giving us a knowledge that here in the northern hemisphere winter is over and brighter days are ahead. Light and dark minutes of the day were equal then, but the light and yang energies would be then on the rise.

Then on March 28, Mercury went Direct, giving promise that our minds were on the road to more sanity and clearer horizons.

And now this week, we continue our down and yin-ward journeys through the last quarter Moon.

Then at the month’s darkest Moon, we shift to a New Moon in Aries and what in many ways I consider a “True Spring Entrance” point.

Remember that on March 20 the Sun went into Aries and at the same time moved into Spring Equinox.

And then on Friday April 5 at 4:50 AM EDT, the Moon catches up with Sun, both in Aries at around 15 degrees.

That night or the night after, we will be able to see a glimpse of the first crescent light of the New Moon in Aries.

This represents strong new beginnings, as the force of Nature is in the hands of warrior Aries.

World events and personal events have been waiting patiently (or not so patiently) for these new moon gates to open in order to let the blaze of Aries to blast through it.

Aries is straight forward and direct, penetrating, active, assertive, directing, “alpha”, competitive, independent, brave, and most importantly True to Self  as it fights for what it believes in.

This is a good time to empower yourself and to stand tall with self respect.

Aries is the ram who often butts heads in conflict with others. God of War Mars is Aries’ ruling planet.

Places like Palestine, Israel, Syria, Iran, India, Pakistan, Russia, China, etc. may be more susceptible to being triggered into being more angry or forceful.

So might you.  Anger is not always bad. Sometimes it helps us to speak up and assert ourselves, to not take the abuse any longer. Or it may help us to be able to act on behalf of others who are being abused. Or it may help us to fight for principles we believe in.

But of course “over the top” rage may have a very negative effect on us and those around us. War often takes no prisoners and burns down the bridges between people.  Be careful not to burn a bridge you might need to reconnect you to someone or something.

Most importantly, Aries is about taking action, initiating and moving forward.

It is time to at least “rev up the engines” of our lives. No more procrastination.  No more excuses.

There is however, a caveat to the fiery force of action and new starts.   Saturn and Pluto will be in square to this New Moon.

That means that some destructive forces may be involved somehow in this new beginning. At the least there will be more seriousness and gravity attached to the issues coming up now and throughout this new lunar cycle.

The gates are being opened, some Dragons may be running through those gates. The Dragons will clear the way of anything that impedes greater growth and transformation.

The USA natal chart is closely connected to this New Moon in Aries with Capricorn squares of Saturn and Pluto.   A Grand Cross is formed with USA Sun in Cancer and Saturn in Libra.  This is a powerful formation that will bring big challenge to the country over the next month or so.

It is quite obvious to almost anyone now that we are in a quite powerful time to be on the Earth and in America.

We are in transition between Ages, leaving an Age of Pisces that we have been in for over 2000 years.  We are moving into an Age of Aquarius.

That means that a New Paradigm has been developing. The old paradigm is in decay and  so are those who cling to it.

People who belong in the New Paradigm can be of any nation, any race or creed, any gender, any sexual orientation.  They can be democrat or republican, religious or not. They can be big or small, rich or poor, high or low IQ,  from the North or South, East or West.

So we need to let go of our bias and prejudice, and open our hearts and minds to Love and Truth.

And those who are not clearly on the path to the Age of Aquarius are not our enemies.

They may, however, not be good for us and our spiritual path and may give us mirrors of who we used to be, not who we are growing into.

They may be at your job or in your family. And you may need to cut your time with them or at least cut out your desire to share all about your life with them.

You can do all this with love, as everyone is just not on the same path.  If you feel you cannot be your authentic self with anyone, at first you may want to try harder to engage them. And maybe that will work.

But if you keep feeling bad about yourself, keep feeling you need to stay in old family roles you have out-grown, or staying in jobs or relationships only for money or security; it may be time to begin to cut cords and liberate your spirit and soul.

Deeper and Deeper and Astrology Forecast March 3-9.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 2, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shit has certainly hit the proverbial fan out in the world.  The old world is purging out its debris for all to see.

Trump meeting with Kim Jong Un did not go as hyped for.   Congressional hearings with Michael Cohen gave out ugly info about Trump that tears his character apart.    Pakistan and India are macho strutting around with nuclear weapons, with all humanity put in danger.

This is all coming out not long after a most intense Eclipse Season earlier this year.  Now in the waning half of the lunar cycle that has followed that Eclipse Season, we are wading through what has been not so graciously excreted into the world.

We are needing to more and more concentrate on the New World we are sensing and creating, growing out from what is being purged.

Death and Birth are constant realities here on the Earth plane.  And now we are in the midst of a huge death of a Pisces Age, over 2000 years old.

And at the same time, we are birthing a new golden Age of Aquarius, which will last 2,160 years.

Can you see what is here now as we let go the past, and let in the new? Both Dark and Light are stronger than ever.

The power of the Feminine is growing and so needed now.  I see a powerful black woman, a Sophia like entity growing stronger and stronger behind the veils of our dying world.

She is most able to deal with humanity through this death while at the same time able to mid-wife the new world into being.

And the growing Feminine is obvious now in the political world, as young and strong women of color are speaking out.  They know the need to purge old ways and build new ones that will serve more and more people in our country and world. The Dark Feminine can hold with compassion those dying souls, and open the way for Birth.

Remember, however, that those from the old world are not the enemy, though it sure feels like it sometimes.

Conservative is merely a desire to hold onto what has been before.  And some of it needs to be looked at before being abandoned.  Are late term abortions really OK? Is it really OK to let everyone into the country without rules?  I think these issues need to be examined, not put so squarely into left and right boxes.

Some conservative ways and beliefs hold onto what is needed from our past. We do not want to throw out the baby with the bath water, so to speak.

And both neo-cons (new conservatives) and neo-libs (new liberals) are wanting conflicts in Venezuela and Syria.  We need to get outside those boxes and speak loudly for no more war, no more fixing other countries into what we want them to be, and no more nukes in our world.

Time to continue together to envision our new world, transform our consciousness in its essence,  and fight for what we believe in,  not against anything or anyone.

Keep meditating and being with others who also know this new world inside.  All is inside first, as we visualize the new world as it will be.

Let the Universe (Source) into your meditations to help co-create this New Age. It is sitting in the inner planes waiting for you to connect to.

This week brings a major shift, as Mercury goes Retrograde just before the New Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune.

Mercury goes Retrograde on Tuesday March 5 at 1:19 PM EST. 

The New Moon in Pisces is on Wednesday March 6 at 11:04 AM EST.   It is especially important and influential as it is closely conjunct Neptune in Pisces and square Jupiter in Sagittarius. 

Expect there to be much confusion and potential chaos, whose purpose is to shake us out of old thinking and old habits.

This is also a potentially a very spiritual combination, one that will help us to let go into the soul world of  connections, synchronicities, signs and symbol from the Universe.

The prerequisite for these experiences is to let go of fears, stuck attitudes and beliefs, and a hatred of the “enemy”.

Sure it can be healthy and empowering to be angry at injustice, unfairness, and ignorance; but hatred toward those who perpetrate those things creates ugly self defeating energy.  Use that energy to fight for what you believe in and the world you want to create.

So Mercury Retrograde may be even more confusing or unsettling than usual, as the Pisces/Neptune effect is so strong too.

Do not push hard to get things done, get an answer, quick-fix anyone or anything,  or rush through some strict agenda.

Stay present, do not panic, do not rush to judgement.

Your mind is wanting to shift its perceptions now, and in the process may want to question your previous thinking, decisions, or promises.  Remember what is going on planetarily, and trust the process. Let this lunar cycle and Mercury Retrograde play out over the next month.

After April 5th or so, direction will be more clear and passages forward will open up.

Use this coming month to go deeper in consciousness, to get more clarity from signs in dreams and waking dreams.

Use the Pisces vibe to gain empathy for others, to better understand your partners, lovers, family members, friends, and especially so-called enemies.

Pisces teaches us that all is connected in unity, at a soul level of being. And it is the soul level of being that infuses us all with energy for connection with one another.

Do not live in a Pisces “dream world” of being naïve, however.  Be discriminating about what energy from others you are taking into your heart and soul.

You do not need to judge anyone it is true, but it is also important not to let in what will hurt you or disempower you. Some people can be so wounded, desperate, and ill on a soul level.  Yes have empathy, but do not stay with them too long. This goes for family and romantic partners too.

Especially now it is important to be as “clean” as possible, and to release old wounds and traumas in the process.

Neptune is the most influential planetary energy now, and it is a great healing energy. It helps dissolve old ways and attitudes, bring forgiveness, helps heal old wounds between people.

Surrender more this week to the Soul and Spirit realm, let go of left brain logic,  which will not work as well as usual.

Expect people from your past to resurface now in dreams and real life.

This next month is not good for big decisions, starting big projects, pushing for answers, pushing for anything.

Up ahead is Spring Equinox on March 20, Mercury Direct on March 28, and New Moon in Aries on April 5.  Before then we are processing, using imagination and intuition, facing ghosts of our past, and doing deep healing.

Till next week,

with Truth and Love,

Navigating New Zones and Astrology Forecast for November 27-December 3

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 26, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have entered a new reality zone- since Mercury went retrograde Thursday and there was a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius Friday.  Free your mind and soul from old patterns and obstructions, and be open to finding new solutions and understandings.  It is time for new beginnings and new inspirations, time to let go of old fears and have more faith in your self and life.  But be careful not to jump or impulsively leap into anything.

Mercury Retrograde gives the feeling that things seem different or unusual or even weird.  That is because the mental plane (Mercury) is changing perception by going retrograde.  We kind of rewind, which helps us to stop and be more reflective.  Mercury Retrograde shifts the mind from what it thought to be true, and helps it to see a situation from a new angle.

In the process of rewinding, we go back to the past sometimes and re-member.   People we have not seen or thought of for awhile come back to our thoughts and feelings, and sometimes actually “in the flesh” come back into our lives to visit.

Since we have just passed through a New Moon in fiery Sagittarius, there is impetus to take a leap forward in our lives or at least in our consciousness.   Since this New Moon is a Solar Eclipse, the potential energy to move forward is many times greater than a usual New Moon.

You may later look back on this time period, this lunar cycle, which lasts until December 24, as a time when things in your life shifted in a big way.   It may be looked at as a time when there was a letting go of beliefs or patterns or people or things and a big breakthrough into new territory.

Let the lunar cycle play out before jumping to any conclusions or making any big moves, if you can help it, as remember that the Solar Eclipse is in sometimes impulsive Sagittarius and that Mercury is Retrograde.

Begin the process of the shifting tides of attitudes and consciousness, let things and people be released if it is time, but do your best to keep options open for as long as you can. Remember that Mercury goes back Direct on December 13 and the current Lunar Cycle, begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon, ends at the next New Moon on December 24.

So let the process unfold and try not to get too goal directed.   The answers will come when it is time, not when you try to use your left brain logic and analysis to force the river to move.

Thursday/Friday, November 30/December 1 there is a turning point in this Eclipse Lunar cycle, as there is a second quarter Moon in Pisces opposite Mars, while Venus is conjunct Pluto.  There is a distinct possibility of conflict, which will challenge your desire to move in a certain direction. Again, do not do anything impulsively.    Keep on track and wait for the air to clear between December 13 and 24th.

There is Major turning point before that, as things will shake up in a most major way surrounding the date of the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on December 10.   This eclipse is quite powerful and synchronizes with Uranus going Direct the same day.

Chaos will likely be strong then, and events will happen in a more unpredictable manner.   Some will be overwhelmed with conflicting information that is difficult to sort through.    We will talk more about that Lunar Eclipse as we get closer to the date.

The signs most affected by these current eclipses are Sagittarius and Gemini, and secondarily Virgo and Pisces.  If you know your astrology natal chart, take note that any planets you have in mutable signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces will be affected, especially if they are between 0 and 4 degreess of 11 through 15 degrees of those signs.  Your life will change in more major ways if that is the case.

In the greater world the Military/Economic system that is run by the USA and Western powers is deflating in order to eventually be in more equal relationship with the rest of the world.  There is nothing that can stop this movement as it is aligned with an Aquarian Age.

There will most likely be much force applied to stop this inexorable movement.  Bandaids are being applied to the sides of the sinking Titanic Economy.   It will through time transform in a big way, but only after the old paradigm has more obviously died in the eyes of those in power.

The military part of this power is also unraveling, and will get worse in Afghanistan/Pakistan,  and in the Middle East.  The USA and western powers are losing influence in these parts of the world, parts of the world where they have no right to be.   When Iran is attacked, which will happen by the summer of 2012, most of the world will be involved in the conflict, which will change the power structure of the world forever.

With each major planetary event, like eclipses, the old world is challenged to release its ways and allow for a more healthy, loving, just world culture.  With each eclipse season, as we are in now, each of us has doors opened into more healthy ways to live on Earth with one another.

The overall movement is to honor the individuality and authenticity of every person and entity, and to find one’s function and purpose in the whole of the human family and Universe. This means contribution to the world community, while we are being true to our authentic self.

Finding our way in life by mainly contributing to monetary profit motives leaves people empty and unfulfilled.

In the Aquarian Age, our purpose is not to make corporations profitable or to keep religious commandments or to please our national interests or to play the role our families demand of us.   We find our purpose by finding our true self as we were created, connecting and aligning with the energies, cycles and seasons of the Universe, and then finding our way to serve our human community on Earth.

Again remember during this eclipse season: life is sacred and meaningful, and sometimes as time passes we must release that which has its time to go.  And though it may sometimes be difficult, a sacred and meaningful life also requires us to embrace the new, our new phases and seasons of our life that at first are not so comfortable.

Scorpio: Deepening of our experience, and Astrology Forecast for October 25-October 31

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2009 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Sun has gone down into Scorpio, and our human experience deepens.  We begin to feel and know the deeper reality and truth.  With so many electronic devices in our lives. with so many prescription drugs, with so much time on the internet, with so much running around to get things done, we often do escape the deeper realities.

At Scorpio time the deeper reality often cannot be avoided.  Family dramas arise.   Emotional outbursts erupt.  Thoughts and feelings we thought had been resolved or buried come back into our consciousness.

It is time for our soul to speak louder than our intellect.  We are so trained here in America to mainly respect what our minds tell us, and to give less respect to our feelings and emotions.

Yet our feelings and emotions are the voice of our souls.  They tell us about our longings and desires, our sufferings and our joys, our hopes and our fears, our deeper connections, our loves and our hates.

Without the feelings and emotions of our souls we are mind driven robots.

So even though Scorpio time of year can seem too emotional or intense for some, it does bring us deeper into our souls, which brings us into our true humanity.

In the greater world some of the latent challenges and troubles will come to the surface to be confronted.   More troubles with the economy will surface this Scorpio month and people will get more worried that we are not in recovery.

The deeper animosity between the western world and Iran will surface with events around Iran’s nuclear program.    Israel will be in the lead to push the world toward war.    Obama is in the lead to find a logical and peaceful solution.

In Pakistan/Afghanistan things will get more intense also, and Obama will likely be pushed to send more troops there.

The battle for health care will heat up even more as we get closer to a united bill.     The Public Option will be included in that bill.

Events and emotions will intensify even more greatly as we get to the middle of November, when we are in the last days of Sun in Scorpio.  On November 15 Saturn will square Pluto and on the 16th will be a Scorpio New Moon.

These aspects will take us deeper into our emotions as events play out that stoke these deeper feelings.    Often under Scorpio influence we figuratively blow our tops like a raging volcano, and in mid to late November this tendency will be at its zenith- especially for people with Scorpio planets or a strong Pluto in their charts.

Astrology Forecast for Oct 25-Oct 31

Emotions intensify during this Scorpio time of year and will intensify even more when there is a new Moon in Scorpio on November 16.

Scorpio is a misunderstood sign and is feared by many people.   Scorpio is most associated with the planet Pluto.  Pluto is the mythological guardian of the underworld, of Hades.   And our modern world is so removed from its natural energies.    Scorpio is the intensity, power, and passion of our instinctual emotions.

In a mostly civilized world it is often feared because it reflects our true feelings and desires that cannot be easily expressed.    So Scorpios often keep their true desires and thoughts to themselves.  But since they are so deep, passionate, and mentally penetrating, they often have to keep powerful emotions suppressed inside.   This is why so many Scorpios seem mysterious.

As guardians of the underworld they see the shadow side of life, the darker motives of other people.   They often cannot stand to be around more superficial people, people who do not seem real to them.

Scorpios will often, and sometimes quite unknowingly, sting a person emotionally in just the place that will upset and hurt  that person the most.  Sometimes arguments will then ensue and all the negative emotions will be expressed.   This can result in a catharsis, almost like a sexual climax, which will leave both parties more angry with one another, or will result in a deep healing experience.

Scorpios, as they are connected to the shadow side of life, are also often quite compassionate people.  They do understand emotional pain.

The second quarter of the lunar cycle begins on Sunday with the Moon in Aquarius square to the Sun in Scorpio.   This can create situations on Sunday and Monday that require us to decide between using our heads or letting out our emotions.

On Tuesday there is less drama as the Moon makes aspect to Jupiter and Neptune.  On Wednesday things deepen again as Mercury leaves harmonious Libra for intense Scorpio.  The Moon in Pisces adds more feeling and depth to the day.

On Wednesday- into Thursday, a Mars square Sun in Scorpio aspect signals anger and confrontation.  Friday also has intense aspects, as the Moon goes into frank and assertive Aries.   That Moon in Aries makes challenging aspect to Uranus, Saturn and Pluto.  Thursday and Friday  could be the most eventful days of the week.  Watch for news in the world that is about major confrontations, battles and disagreements.

Also on Thursday Saturn moves into a sign it feels most comfortable in.  In most of the next 2 and a half years Saturn will be in Libra.  It begins to get into orb now of its square to Pluto.   We are being taken into more fear-based challenges.

It is wise to keep up with spiritual practices now so you can stay out of fear.   All is happening as it must now and is setting us up for the transition between ages.  Look for signs and symbols from the Universe, watch for meaningful synchronicities that show you where to go on your life path.  The Universe is always there to help us on our way. Stay aware of its presence.

Our human family is coming up to place it has been in many times before.   As we change ages we need to decide whether we are all one, no matter our differences.   If we choose instead to see other peoples as our enemies we will bring a much different future to ourselves.

We are all one family if we choose to see it that way.  We are all enemies if we choose to see it that way.    It does seem that we will, as always, be taken to the edge before we choose.

See you next week,

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius and Astrology Forecast for August 2-8

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 1, 2009 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This upcoming week brings us the 3rd and last Eclipse of the Summer of 2009.    It is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius.    On the west coast of the USA it is at 5:56 PM on Wednesday the 5th of August.  On the east coast at 8:56 PM, and in places east of the USA the eclipse happens on the 6th of August.

A Lunar Eclipse occurs because the  Earth is between the normal Full Moon opposition of the Sun and Moon, and hence its shadow blocks the Sun from shining on the Moon- from our vantage point on Earth.  It is a penumbral eclipse which means the Moon will not be as darkly covered as in a total eclipse.    The eclipse will not be so obvious.   And its complete eclipse process will only be seen in South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.  The eastern half of the USA, at Moonrise, will see the end of the eclipse process.

Remember that eclipses, both Solar and Lunar, are much more powerful versions of New Moons (solar) and full Moons (lunar).   Solar Eclipses, at new Moons, bring powerful new beginnings.    Lunar Eclipses, being Full Moons, bring powerful resolutions or dramatic merging of opposites.

At this Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, with the Sun in Leo opposed by the Moon in Aquarius, there is a dichotomy between personal ego (Leo) with group consciousness (Aquarius).  An example of something that happened on the journey to this Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is what happened in the case of Professor Henry Gates.

Dr. Gates was arrested by Officer Crowley in mid July, a few days before the Solar Eclipse New Moon on July 21.   He was breaking into his own home because the front door was stuck.  A woman called the police and Detective Crowley came to the Gates residence to investigate.  After an argument between them Mr Gates was then handcuffed and arrested.

It is quite likely that his being African American contributed to his arrest, but it is also obvious that his ego and arrogance (“Don’t you know who I am?”) also contributed to his arrest.

Later President Obama said the Police Department acted stupidly.     Three individual egos expressing their viewpoints of the incident.

But this week they all got together at the White House, with Vice president Biden, in a small group to bring the varying egos and viewpoints together.     And this happened less than a week before the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, which has the Sun in individual ego Leo and the Moon in group consciousness Aquarius.

Look at your own life now to view where this drama is playing out.    Where is there a need to bring together individual egos in collaboration with others in a group?    Where can you combine your heart’s desire for what you want or want to express, with a social consciousness or community understanding?

Overall, during this eclipse period, which has its greatest intensity between mid June and mid September, look to let go of that which needs to die in your life, and open up to the breakthroughs, which open new doors of opportunity for you.

It is best to see your life in meaningful ways when you encounter doors closing for you in life.   Relationships end as seasons end; a job loss opens your mind to changing your career, which never suited you anyway.   Life is really not random, unless you see it that way.

In the Greater World look for events to surface and intensify close to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse.   These events will blow up into bigger events later in the Summer and into the Fall.  The places most conducive to change surrounding this eclipse:  Pakistan, India, Israel, Iran,  the Baltic region, Jamaica,  Egypt, Bolivia, Eritrea, and Sri Lanka.

Please keep in mind, however, that all regions of the Earth can be influenced by the changes that eclipses bring with them.

And remember that we are all changing our consciousness and lives in alignment with a movement into an Aquarian Age.  The eclipse periods push us faster forward in our growth, helping us to let go of that which needs to be released, and bringing new ideas and opportunities aligned with our personal and collective evolution into the new age.

We are thinking more “green”.  We are seeing us all over the world getting closer through mass transportation, communication, and commerce. It is a “smaller” world, one we all need to get along in together, through all our diversity.    We need to be individually and collectively liberated from dictators, corporations, and governments that oppress and control our hearts, souls, and minds.  We need to take responsibility for own lives and our Earth and human community.  We need to find solutions to the many problems that face us for our future, by thinking outside the boxes of programmed minds.

We are ready, more and more every day, to move out of a rigid paradigm for living on this Earth,  to heal what separates us, to create new ways to be on this Earth and with each other.

We also need to look to the skies for other peoples of the Universe who will greet us before too long, to forever change our perspective about our selves and our lives.  Remember that people were once sure, relatively not that long ago, that the world was flat.

Our world is changing rapidly now and so are we.

Astrology Forecast for August 2- August 8

On Sunday the 2nd of August, the Moon moves from excitable Sagittarius to serious and grounded Capricorn, and later in the day Mercury moves from sunny Leo to work oriented Virgo.  So on Sunday and Monday it would behoove you to keep your feet on the ground and not be too wild.  Serious discussions are possible.

As the Moon goes into Aquarius late on Tuesday, where it will be for the Lunar Eclipse, the vibrations for the eclipse get stronger.   Watch your life and the greater world for signs of change.     See big egos inflate.  Watch other people who care about changing our world to a better place come together.   Watch the interaction unfold.  Remember that it is natural and essential to have an ego, to want to express your personal truth and have a life that you personally desire.  It is not, however, “natural” to make your self essentially a lot better or worse than anyone else.    It is natural and essential to care about what is best for your human community, but unnatural to not also care about your self.

On the 5th at 8:56 PM EDT is the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius.   This is a powerful Full Moon, where you may feel out of balance as your “normal” life is being disrupted. Use the disruption to move with change.  getting out of “same-old, same-old” helps us to dance with a new personal rhythm, one which helps us to grow.

The 6th through the 8th are also within the rays of the Eclipse Full Moon. Remember there can be real magic at full moons, and especially so at Lunar Eclipse Full Moons.

Journeying through the Summer Eclipses of 2009, Astrology Forecast for July 26-August 1.

As we come toward the final eclipse in this summer of eclipses,  a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius on August 5,  we stay in the intensity, in the shifting tides of change.  We are letting go of the old,  ready to be released.  We are letting in the new, ready to be embraced.

I have witnessed many people these last few weeks go through dramatic events in their lives.    More than a few have experienced big family and relationship changes.   Some have had big surprises, like finding out their mate no longer wants to be with them, or having a relationship that was thought dead and gone, unexpectedly come back to life.

Some have lost their jobs during this eclipse period, and subsequently been forced to dig deeper inside themselves to find a sense of purpose, to think of new work that fuels their passion.

One client of mine opened a new store during this time period, apparently leaving forever her time of working for someone else.

Another client went on a trip to find a new city to live in and came back home appreciating her home more than ever.

So many people have been experiencing family crises and challenges during this eclipse period.  Some have had family members die, others have had to find ways to now take care of aging parents who are becoming more and more vulnerable.  Some are having children get ready to go away to college and leave home for the first time.   Families are also adding new members, new children being born, adopting children, or bringing friends to their home to live.

Many people have also been going through deep emotional anguish during this eclipse period of time.  Many have been nostalgic about the past, regretting bad times or decisions, remembering past loves, family get- togethers, homes one used to live in.

The eclipse intensity this summer is from mid-June to mid September.  Big shifts, breakdowns of the old, and breakthroughs into the new, are helping us all to transform our lives and consciousness so we will be more aligned with the new phase of existence we are moving into together.

For our human family these 3 eclipses in a row, something that hasn’t happened since the year 2000, represent a major passage forward in our evolution.

We are moving closer to the New World foretold by the Mayans, beginning in December of 2012.  We are on the cusp between a Pisces and Aquarian Age, which begins around 2020, when Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius.

Our personal lives and consciousness are changing to assist our evolution into this new Age.

Expect more changes and surprises during this summer of eclipses.  We will stay off balance and out of “normal”, for the summer, with a peak of intensity surrounding the next eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on August 5. We will slowly slip into a new “normal” after the dust has cleared from the eclipse period.

Watch world events play out that will give you a sense of the kind of greater world we are moving into, and what America is becoming.  Will the economic recession continue?    Will Iran and North Korea become bigger problems, and will Israel invade Iran before the year is over?  Will Obama become more of a target for right wing extremists, especially since he recently spoke out against the police handling of scholar and African American Henry Gates?   Will his life be more in danger now as he attempts to break away from the confines of the American military industrial empire, and be more a part of our collective evolution into an Aquarian Age?  What will now happen in Pakistan and China, in Israel and Palestine?

The balance of power in America and in the world is shifting.   The economic structure in America and in the world is transforming.

Many of the aforementioned issues will heat up before the summer is over. Please keep in mind that what is shaking up during the eclipse period are the seeds that will sprout into bigger events in the fall and perhaps as late as the early winter.  The economy and Iran particularly need to watched in the eclipse period, as signs then will show us the fall events later.   It is quite possible the economy will falter even further in the autumn and that Israel will attack Iran, creating increasing chaos in the middle east and around the world.

Personal growth and change will continue also, and it is best to “ride the wave” and not resist.   Let go of that which needs to die, and let in that which is new and will bring progress to your life.  “The way it was” no longer exists, and if you hold onto it too tightly, you will only bring your self more pain.  The new feels uncomfortable at first, but we will grow into it like new shoes.

Next week we will look more closely at the next and last of the 3 eclipses of the summer of 2009.

Astrology Forecast for July 26-August 1

On Sunday the Moon is in peaceful and harmonious Libra and makes graceful aspects to both Mars and the Sun.  Though anything is possible and many things can keep us out of balance during this eclipse period of time, nevertheless this should be a most fun and pleasant day.  Monday the 27th is also looking pleasant as Venus and the Moon make favorable aspects.

On Tuesday, however, the mood shifts to more emotions and primal feelings, and there is a better chance then to have relationship challenges as Venus makes aspects to Uranus and the Sun squares the Moon at the 2nd quarter Moon.  Wednesday and much of Thursday the Moon stays in Scorpio, and some intensity and confrontation will continue. It is generally better now, however, to express your feelings and not keep them inside your self.

Late Thursday and through Friday and Saturday, the Moon will be in spirited Sagittarius.  The beginning waves of  influence from the Lunar Eclipse will be coming in then also.  World events affiliated with the Lunar Eclipse may be developing now also.

Venus moves into Cancer late on Friday and opposes Pluto on Saturday.  Relationship issues can be intensifying greatly now, on a personal level and also between nations.

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon and Astrology Forecast for July 5-July 11

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 4, 2009 by spiritualtherapy

The week ahead brings us our first of three eclipses, on Tuesday July 7 at 5:21 AM EDT.    It is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse.   A Lunar Eclipse can only happen at a Full Moon, whereas a Solar Eclipse can only happen at a New Moon.

A Full Moon happens when the Moon is exactly opposite the Sun.   At a Lunar Eclipse, the Earth is exactly between the opposition of the Sun and Moon, effectively blocking the Sun’s light from the Moon.

For this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse the Sun is at 15+ degrees of Cancer and the Moon is at 15+ degrees of Capricorn.

This is only a partial eclipse and will be barely visible even to those who are in its path.    The next Eclipse, a solar one on July 21 will be a total eclipse and visible to some parts of the world.  We will tell you more as we get closer to that one.

Eclipses come at times when events are shaking things up.   The time period of most intensity from these three eclipses is from mid June to Mid September.   The actual eclipses occur on July 7- a partial lunar eclipse, on July 21- a total Solar Eclipse, and on August 5- another partial Lunar Eclipse.  The fallout from the eclipses can last years.

The last time there were three eclipses in a row was in the summer of 2000, nine years ago.  It was that summer when the world got the closest it ever has to making a lasting agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, seeking to give the Palestinians a state of their own.

The 3 eclipses were in July, and on July 9 the Israeli government of Ehud Barak failed because the rightist parties left the government because of concessions that were being made to the Palestinians. 

On July 25 the talks completely broke down, foiling President Clinton’s strong intention to make lasting peace in the Middle East before he left office.  Two months later the Palestinian Intifada began, creating a war-like atmosphere between Israel and Palestine, from which they have not recovered.

At the end of July George Bush was nominated president and named Dick Cheney as his running mate.

These events, happening during the 3 eclipse period of 2000, set the stage for the tragedy of 9-11 a year later.  Osama Bin Laden has often referred to the injustice perpetrated against the Palestinians as a primary cause of Al Qaeda’s rage against Israel, America, and western nations.  

George Bush’s presidency quite arguably changed America and its image in the world in enormous ways.

So as we come to our first of 3 eclipses in the summer of 2009, probably the weakest of the three, we face many challenges that have come our way during the eclipse period of Mid June to mid September.

North Korea used the USA birthday of July 4 to set off 7 missile tests across the pacific ocean.  This was an obvious message. 

Iran has arrested British employees of its embassy in Tehran, has effectively stopped the insurgency against the government, and has threatened with imprisonment Mousavi, who challenged the accuracy of the election of Ahmadinejad.

I also expect events to intensify greatly concerning Pakistan, especially toward the third eclipse.

I expect Peru to have greater protests against government attempts to use resources and oil in indiginous areas of Peru, including the rain forest.  

I also expect the Iranian, Israeli and North Korea situations to intensify and become more clear what direction we are moving in with them.

We could see war between Israel and Iran, with the USA involved, before year’s end.  We could see more serious threats between North Korea and Japan develop.

And more clear signs of the direction of the economy can develop before the eclipse period is over, letting us know if we have reached bottom of the recession or if we are in for another Great Depression.  After the second eclipse we will know more.

In our personal lives it is time to say goodbyes and to allow our lives and consciousness to go through greater transformation on the way to an Aquarian Age.  If you have planets from you natal chart that are closely influenced by the eclipse positions, you will be greatly affected.  If you are now having your life shook up, you are quite possibly one of those people.

Astrology Forecast for July 5-July 11

This is a very eventful week, including a Lunar Eclipse and Jupiter conjunct Neptune in Aquarius.

The week begins on July 5 with Goddess of Love Venus leaving soft and sensuous Taurus for lively and sociable Gemini. Go out and have a good time with friends now and for the next month as Venus remains in Gemini approximately that long.  The Moon is in Sagittarius till late that night, again making it conducive for high spirits and a good time, even with the intensity of the eclipse getting stronger.

Things feel more glum and serious on Monday the 6th of July as the Moon is now in Capricorn.  On Monday into early Tuesday, Mars squares Neptune and Jupiter and sextiles Uranus.   There is lot of action and movement today as we move into the Lunar Eclipse at 5:21 AM Tuesday morning.    

Family and domestic pressures are up against pressures from obligations and work.  You may have arguments over being lenient or strict with children or others, and have a challenge between doing what you feel like doing or being disciplined.   Emotional boundary issues may also be important to deal with now.

Remember eclipses are times when it is good to let go of what is ready to be released, and to let into your life what is right for you now.    Shake up times at eclipse points are times when we are assisted by the Universe to enter new phases of our lives.

Adding more energy to the eclipses is the second of three conjunctions in a row between Jupiter and Neptune.  This second conjunction happens on Friday the 10th.    Chiron also has been making conjunction with Jupiter and Neptune in Aquarius. It has been thousands of years since this has happened.

Since it is all happening in Aquarius as we are on the cusp of an Aquarian Age, Aquarian themes prevail.  It is time to think about equality of all peoples, of self determination, of liberty and freedom.   These all all values from the founding of America as the USA has its moon (inner values) in Aquarius.

Also now keep looking at the skies, as times of UFO and extraterrestrial viewings proliferate during Jupiter conjunctions with Neptune or Uranus in Aquarius.

As this conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune in Aquarius plays out you may experience more magic and synchronicities, more progress spiritually, more desire to be involved in socially conscious groups that have lofty ideals that inspire you.

I will write a new blog/forecast as usual next Saturday/Sunday.
