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

Being Sane at Times of Change and Astrology Forecast March 20-26

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 19, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

There is a plethora of important planetary movements this week.

This week could bring a turning point in one’s life, or a crossroads for some issue.

Most importantly there is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra Wednesday the 23rd at 8:01 AM EDT. 

That same day Jupiter will square Saturn, as Saturn is slowing down as it changes directions to Retrogarde on March 25.  That makes Saturn especially strong.

As such there is a grounded pull downward, a focus toward “getting down to business”,  taking responsibility, organizing or disciplining oneself. The value of logic increases.

There could also be an important decision that needs to be made or a commitment to something important.

There may also be a feeling of fate, that something was meant to be.

The Lunar Eclipse will tend to shake things up out of same-old, same-old status quo, overly comfortable ways of living one’s life.   It is getting to be time to move on regardless if things have been figured out or not.

Since this is a Full Moon in Aries/Libra, there will be a focus on relationship.  That focus will include looking to find a balance between taking care of one’s own needs on the one hand; and taking care of the other person and the relationship on the other hand.

Have we previously focused too much on ourselves- or instead have we been overly accommmodating of the other person in relationship?

If you have been more caretaker than taking care of your own needs, then it is time to find a balance and take care of your self more.

If instead you have been overly focused on your self and not considering enough the other person, then it is time to listen to your friend or mate more.

Aries is about being true to oneself, which is a natural way to be.   Why would we not want to be true to our own authenticity and needs.

Libra is about listening and honoring someone else and the relationship.  It takes an attitude like that to keep a relationship healthy.

So where is the balance found?  Does one of you take care of themselves while the other person tends to the relationship?

It is time to work this out in different, more healthy ways

And Saturn helps to ground everything and to help you focus on committing to try hard to make it all work.

With Jupiter square a focal Saturn this week, it is no time to expand or fly high into anything.  Saturn is a sobering influence, so to speak, and it prevents one from being flighty or airy-fairy.

It is a good week to be real about whatever we think, say or do.

Relationships of all kinds are in the spotlight this week, so relationship between countries or world leaders could be strained and made to be quite real this week.

Saturn should stop anything from getting too out of control this week. Eclipses bring powerful and intense energies of change our way, energies that cause breakdowns of old ways and breakthroughs into new ways of thinking or being.

And that will be true with this week’s Eclipse too, but Saturn should keep you more  focused than at the last eclipse in Pisces.

In the greater world, issues that were previously unresolved or fuzzy or unknown will get clearer and known.

The presidential primaries should bring a more clear idea of who has won or lost.  Also fate may step in with serious repercussions, like if the email scandal for Clinton brings indictments; or if Trump or someone else has some scandal to deal with.

Communication will also be an important issue this week, as Mercury makes stromg aspects to the Sun and Mars on the 23rd and 24th.

Sun conjunct Mercury in Aries suggests we speak openly, with frankness, straight forward and direct.

But if too direct, without consideration for how a person will receive the information, there could be hurt feelings and defensiveness.

So say your piece but be sensitive to the people you are relating to.

This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse being in Aries/Libra also suggests a question of going to battle or making peace.  In Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Iran, Iraq, and North and South Korea this war or peace Eclipse could play out.

In your own life, is it right to be confrontative or better to keep quiet for the sake of having peace.

Or better yet is there a way to state your truth with a velvet glove of soft words?

This week could clear the way so you can soon find direction, clarity, and answers.  But most importantly, this week is a turning point.

It will tend to help us from going over the same mental tapes over and over again without resolution.

As I believe Einstein said- paraphrased,”If you do things the same way over and over again always looking but never finding better results, you are insane”.

It is time to stop the knee jerk habit of repeating the same words or phrases or questions over and over again. We are having the same conversations but nothing ever changes.

If we truly want different more healthy results we need to have the courage to think and act outside the old boxes.  Take chances and get out of old patterns that are ready to die at this Lunar Eclipse New Moon.

There is a feeling of security or stability that keeps us doing the old familiiar ways over and over again.

Now is the opportunity to change while good old Saturn keeps things grounded and sane.

The world is changing so fast now, and we cannot keep alive old rotted patterns except to our detriment.   As the old world keeps trying to keep the old ways, it decays and falls apart-  And so do we, if in our personal lives we try to keep the old and tired ways alive on “life support systems”.

Till next week,

Leo

Clearing the Way and Astrology Forecast February 28-March 5

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 27, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This is the last full week before the first of two strong eclipses in March.

That will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on March 8.  The waters of soul will be triggered to the max at this eclipse, and many are already feeling the deep emotions associated with it already.

The spilling out of feelings and emotions may be quite powerful for some of you.  On a deeper level this is about releasing the past and for some the “ghosts” and “demons” from their past.

There is such a new world that has been opening for all of us collectively and for each of us individually.  We cannot truly embrace this new phase of life if we are holding on too tightly to personal baggage from the past.

And some of that baggage is tied into personal traumas or emotional wounds that are may not be easy to access, let alone release.

Some of us are in need of some deep soul work so our traumas will not be triggered in such a debilitating manner.

As we enter new relationships, old wounds and traumas may limit our ability to trust and be vulnerable.

As we enter new jobs or careers our past hurts can have us feeling a lack of true confidence that we will do a good job or be truly appreciated by others.

Our moving to a new home or community can bring back traumas from our childhood that have us feeling we will not fit in or be accepted for who we are.

And make no mistake about it, this is huge portal that is opening now, a new portal filled with new experiences, new energies, more magic, a new paradigm for living, etc.

And this portal brings us a big step forward toward the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius, which by my calculation will be sometime in the early ’20s.

Look at the state of the American world now, as can be seen in the political fighting between presidential candidates.  If you watched the Republican debate last week, you know how ugly and childish it was.

On the surface it makes one doubt we are entering any better world.

But on looking beneath the surface you can see that the old status quo is breaking down, and that is a prerequisite for a new paradigm and age to be built.

The old two party system is corrupt, run by billionaires and mega-corporations and other special interests. We the people have lost our voice.

Yet now with a few of the new candidates, people are coming out in droves because they see the opportunity for “we the people” to take back our power.

Perhaps people are not seeing clearly the character of the candidates who give them hope, but nevertheless people are awakening and it will not be easy to put that genie back in bottle again, so to speak.

Be prepared as other huge events will come our way soon, events that may be quite ugly on the surface, but will help break down the stuck structures and habits from the old world.

And in your personal life it is the same way.  Sometimes we can stay in old ways, and even want to stay in stable situations that have lost their spirit and soul.  It gets so “comfortable” we do not want to disrupt our lives.

But on a deeper level our spirits and souls are dying and require change and transformation.  We would not leave familiar habits without “kicking and screaming” to stay put.

But the waves from this portal will shake us up out of complacency.  March will bring emotional shakeups and force the need for deeper processing. April will bring more action, more manifestation, more motivation to move forward in your life.

This week, on Tuesday we enter the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began on February 8 at the New Moon in Aquarius.   

This last quarter brings us to greater completion, resolution and closure of some issues. There will be some cleaning up to do, some sweeping away of the past, getting prepared for new beginnings at the New Moon Solar Eclipse on March 8.

In the middle of this week, there may be some relationship challenges to deal with as Venus makes aspect to the Uranus/Jupiter quincunx aspect now in the sky and exact on March 6,  my birthday.

Uranus is in Aries and Jupiter in Virgo, so there is a mismatch (quincunx) between those two energies.  Uranus seeks to awaken, make breakthroughs and generally to motivate us to move forward with our lives.

Jupiter in Virgo seeks to help us to put our affairs in order, to clean up and perfect.

And Venus is caught in the middle of all this, which means our relationships may be challenged by our desires for change and liberation as well as needs to make perfect and create order.

And all the while this week, the oceanic waves of change pushing at the Eclipse Portal will get stronger and stronger.

If you look out onto the global scene, you will see more chaos but also attempts at order in Syria, Libya, and Iraq. You will see more portents of greater troubles in Israel/Palestine; more irrationality with North Korea, more signs of economic dangers, and more fear from Republican leaders that they are losing control or their party with the winning by Donald Trump.

Waves of change are ready to pour through the Eclipse Portal, shaking up our world at its foundation.

Keep your self centered with a perspective of the bigger picture:   The Age of Aquarius needs the breakdown of old structures of our dysfunctional and toxic world in order to download new energies and light aligned with this New World.

Till next week at the Solar Eclipse,

Leo

Down to Earth and Astrology Forecast November 2-8

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 1, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Both eclipses from Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 have now passed.  Mercury is almost back to its normal Direct speed, after having been Retrograde for most of October.

That high level of intensity that Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 has brought to us is somewhat subsiding as we move through the Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus this week on November 6.   But we have not completely finished the passage of this Eclipse Season yet.

Yes I  know many of you are getting planted in this new chapter of your life now.   All the powerful planetary movements this year have thrust us into new zones of consciousness and life.

Maybe, however, you are still procrastinating on decisions that need to be made; or still delaying talks with others you have been putting off; or not yet jumping forward into what is right for you now.

For many Autumn Eclipse Season took care of that, and events motivated you to let go more fully of what needs to be released.

The time we are moving into soon, as dust settles from the power of changing winds, is mostly for putting into reality what needs to still be made manifest.

And Mars in Capricorn will help you to do that for the next 5 weeks or so while it stays in Capricorn.  

But the Sun and Venus and Saturn being in Scorpio now will keep you in deeper emotional and consciousness waters, swimming through to the corners of your mind’s stagnant pools.

Those often abandoned thoughts and feelings from our past want to revisit our waking minds in order to find closure or healing.

Revisiting and hopefully closure and healing from past hurts or traumas is often a prerequisite for full entrance into new chapters of our life.

Keeping that old baggage locked up threatens to damage your new relationships and endeavors later in this new phase of your life.

There will be some help soon to break open the locks and chains, as Mars in Capricorn will be triggering the immensely important Uranus/Pluto square late this week and especially next week.

In that regard Mars will make exact conjunction with Pluto on November 10 and exact square with Uranus on November 12.  The days surrounding these planetary aspects should bring greater intensity and winds of change again.

These new winds will help to shake things up again and thus to loosen or break any chains that still bind.    That loosening or breaking will help you to make more firmly the decision you are waiting on, or to be more confident what you have already done or plan to do.

Then after November 22 at the New Moon in Sagittarius, you can feel the fires of new adventures and new inspirations burning.  Taking the leap will be easier then.

Then on December 15 the second to last Uranus/Pluto square is exact, showing us even more transformational movement.

And then on December 21 is the Winter Solstice, more powerful than usual as it forms a New Moon in Capricorn that day when revolutionary Uranus also goes direct.

World events have been very significant this year, threatening “business as usual” in America and the world.   Islamic State, Ebola, Ukraine, and Israel/Palestine events this year are instigating disruptions to the status quo security structures, and promise world changes that will eventually transform the world we live in.

As the economy also transforms, we can expect a New Age in Aquarius to bring us a world of greater equality and fairness,  renewed love and truth, and a world structure based on Diversity in Unity.

There is obviously much work and many great awakenings to be revealed in order for that New World to become reality.

This past week there were a few serious mishaps in our skies.  A rocket taking off from Virginia with the intention of supplying a Space Station exploded and crashed, and a Virgin Galactic rocket meant to be a test case for space travel for the general public also crashed and burned.

Gravity is having its way now as Capricorn and Pluto are the strongest energies.  Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which rules gravity; and Scorpio is ruled by Pluto which rules the underworld. And most of the planets are in earth or water signs now, not fire and air.   So the pull is down and in, not up and out.  Yin is stronger than yang.

Add all that to the fact that our old world’s paradigm and priorities are shifting.   Our desires to keep finding our answers “out there” is dying.  Our needs to go inward and yin-ward and to take care of our human family and its creatures here on Earth is getting stronger and stronger.  We do not need to keep conquering anymore.  We need to be more in touch with inner values of caring and healing.

The Bear is a symbolic animal to keep aware of now.  Look for its presence in your awareness now. It signifies protecting and caring for what we already cherish, and stopping the energies of constant driving toward material gains and greedy behavior. Here locally in Maine it is time to protect our Bears from more abuse through our vote this week.

Our Earth is where we live, and she needs our care and concern and love. Our Mother needs us to be aware of her needs, not to take her for granted anymore.  Going to other planets may be fine one day, but right now we need to take care of home and its inhabitants. The message now, especially with the rocket crashes, is to “come down to Earth”.

The Full Moon this week is Thursday November 6 at 5:23 PM EST.     It is formed with the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus.   This is a dance primal passion (Scorpio) and earthly security and calm (Taurus).    These are both fixed signs and both desire to hold on and not let go. Scorpio holds onto feelings and emotions, especially ones that have come from hurts, rejections or betrayals.  Taurus holds onto physical possessions and people. Each is stubborn in its own way.   Be careful not to get into any tugs of war this week with others.

This Full Moon is one that also seeks balance between keeping the calm order and letting in passions, intensities, and disruptions.

Afterwards it may feel like a turning point to ending the Autumn Eclipse Season, but remain aware that there is more to come this autumn.

See you next week,

Leo

Saying Goodbye to Summer and Astrology Forecast September 14-20.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 13, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week brings us the last of summer and the last quarter of the lunar cycle that was begun at the New Moon in Virgo on August 25.

It is a week of feeling the endings, of grieving the past, of acceptance, of fixing and healing, of putting in order and preparing.

It may be easy to feel “down” this week, and it is OK as so many natural endings are occurring.  Yet we are also accepting this new chapter of life we have embarked on both personally and globally.

The Cardinal Grand Cross and the aspects that followed it this year have thrust us into a new world for better and worse.  Of course ultimately this new chapter is a stepping stone on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

But sometimes that may not feel so positive as there are obstacles on our path.   And making change is not always easy, even if we know it is change for the best.

So this week we pause before the intensity picks up appreciably again soon.

Next week on September 22 there will be the Autumn Equinox.  Then on September 23/24 there will be a New Moon in Libra.  And quite importantly add to the mix that on September 22, a mere two hours before the equinox, Pluto will be changing directions from Retrograde to Direct.

Pluto (“ruling” planet of Scorpio) changing directions not only puts its powerful and transformational energy in the spotlight at the turning of seasons, but it gives us a strong signal of what is to come this autumn.

Pluto is the mythological “Guardian of the Underworld’, a power that goes deep into the core of the inner world of mystery and brings up the shadows, and the secrets.

It represents also the more passionate and primal instincts of our human nature and when triggered can open up “Pandora’s Box” of previously suppressed and repressed emotions.

After the expressions of more primal emotions, there is a clearing and healing.  Then there is a transformation and a rebirth or renewal of life energy.

Pluto, as part of the “signature” of our Autumn Equinox this year, strongly suggests a quite intense Autumn Eclipse Season ahead.

This promises to be a most powerful Autumn Eclipse Season, mostly because Uranus and Pluto make another exact square to one another, and will help form with the Lunar Eclipse in Aries an important Cardinal T-Square formation on October 8.  Then that Lunar Eclipse will be followed up by a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio two weeks later, on October 23.

Life changing world events will again blow into our collective lives, and could begin as soon as the week of the Autumn Equinox when Pluto changes directions.   That week is the official beginning of the Autumn Eclipse Season.

The USA and President Obama have declared war on the Islamic State.    This will cause the already unstable and chaotic Middle East to get even more volatile.  There is no eradicating of an issue that is much deeper than the reality of the Islamic State.

Before long much of our globe will be involved in changing the borders and maps of this world.   In Ukraine/Russia there is a conflict around real estate and  allegiances.   China is now in conflict with the Philippines and Japan and Viet Nam around territories.  Scotland wants to secede from Great Britain.   Hong Kong and Taiwan are in conflict with China around independence issues.  Kashmir continues to be a bone of contention for Pakistan and India.

And there are other places around the globe where old boundaries for states are being challenged.  The most volatile region for changing of allegiances and borders has been the Middle East since the Arab Spring in 2010-11.

And now with Syria, Iraq, and Libya in such flux; and with Israel and Palestine fighting for land, there is no telling how the borders will be redrawn in the Middle East.

Keeping boundaries or letting go of boundaries. keeping the old or opening up to the new- these are themes that will continue in personal lives as well as in the greater world.

This is all part of the transition between ages, as the old paradigm and world are beginning to crumble.   There is a huge new balance of power forming, and old ways will die in the process.

The Powers that Be now, with the media also part of that old paradigm, will create stories that serve their interests and to which they truly have bought into.  And each culture within this old world will have their stories, based on a biased view of what is happening and who is “good” and who is “bad”.

But realize that the deepest and highest of truths are that we are entering a New Age and that the old rules and structures will need to be transformed.  What we rely on for our notions of “reality” are changing also.

And in our personal lives we have been leaving an old sense of what is “normal” for a new sense of normal, which will slowly form through time.  For now we are still adjusting to our own new world.

And even for those who have not had their outer lives change that much this year, there is still a sense for many of not feeling the same sense of “normal” inside themselves.  There is an uneasiness, a not knowing, a sense that big shifts in the greater world will also end up affecting their lives too.

It is best to find ways to ease ego controls and to trust more the Universe and our own deeper souls.   There are deeper realities at work that are bringing new light into our consciousness and souls.

That new light is meant to help us to evolve in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.  It can come through much more gracefully if we are not controlling its movement. Yes of course our egos are blinded by the light and afraid of the changing tides. That is what egos do.

But if there is trust in the bigger picture, the ego can give way enough to let light in while still feeling safe.

There is no force out to destroy you or your life. But there are energies that seek to break down walls of separation, separation from the wisdom of your soul, separation from the Universe, and separation from those who have love and truth to serve you with.

See you next week for the Autumn Equinox and hopefully with a new YouTube presentation for Autumn Eclipse Season.

Turning up the Rock and Roll Music and Astrology Forecast June 8-14

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 7, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have entered the Mercury Retrograde time period now.   It will last until July 1.

This could be an especially challenging Mercury Retrograde.  That is because Mars will continue to journey through Cardinal sign Libra until it triggers the transformational planets from the Cross: Uranus and Pluto, and also the  degrees of the Cardinal Grand Cross from last April.

It will in that process square transiting Pluto on June 14, touch the exact degrees of the Cardinal Grand Cross from April on June 16-17, and then on June 25 it opposes transiting Uranus.

Triggers are known to touch off issues that have not been fully resolved, and often times these issues can be brought back quite dramatically and intensely.  What came up for you during the March-May period of the Cross’ influence may come back for further processing, but long standing issues from the more long ago past may also come back as part of the Mercury Retrograde influence.

Often during Mercury Retrograde people or memories or dreams remind us of the past, and motivate us to relive sweet and/or bitter times.   Music may also serve the purpose of bringing back feelings or thoughts from days gone by.

Keep in mind that Mercury Retrograde is meant to shift our focus, shift our perceptions, change our mindset so that we can see with new eyes.

But that new sight will not be clear until after Mercury goes back Direct again.  So do not jump to any conclusions, make any rash decisions,  or shift your life direction until Mercury goes back Direct again in July.

That advice is especially pertinent this current Mercury Retrograde period, as the Cardinal Grand Cross will be triggered, potentially causing additional confusion and emotional turmoil.

The ability to find “logic” and objectivity in your usual ways may be compromised at this time.

So it is best if you can to retreat, reflect, and re-member. Use your imagination and heart more, as your left brain’s way of perceiving may not be operating as it usually does.

In the greater world tensions will increase over the next few weeks, and communication issues may get in the way of people truly understanding one another’s position.

There is a restructuring of our world going on now, and rebalancing of power. During the Cardinal Grand Cross influence of March through May, Russia was threatening Western interests in Ukraine, China was becoming more assertive about its interests, and Iran was in the spotlight working out its nuclear issues with world powers.

Israel and the USA were also more at odds with one another around the Palestinian issue, an issue that is now threatening to get more out of hand.

It would not take much now to touch off world storms that could get out of control.

But overall, there is a powerful wave of new light and energy that seeks to penetrate our collective and individual bodies and souls.   When there is a block that stops the light and energy from flowing through, there will then be issues that come up as red flags alerting us to make changes.

That can come in the form of physical problems, emotional upsets, or intense events in our individual lives.   And in the greater world  explosive or seemingly destructive events alert us to the knowledge that something is out of balance, unaligned, corrupted, diseased, and/or toxic, that needs to be healed and transformed.

For instance there are more and more incidents of people going crazy and perpetrating mass murder, in shopping malls, the workplace, schools, military bases, etc.

This is happening because of the dysfunctional and toxic paradigm we are living under, because of the lack of love and truth in our world, because our human priorities are out of whack, in that we care more about our material concerns and our security than we do about real human values.

The energies of the Age of Aquarius are powerful, but human stubbornness is powerful too.  We often fight with all our power to keep things just as they are, no matter what.

We cannot avoid the energies of change, however, especially now as they are so powerful.  But  we can choose to seek alignment with these changes and evolve, or we can instead choose to make our individual wills and egos more important.

Trust the process now, open your heart to the energies, and make intention to stay in your heart no matter what.  If you stay in your heart or at least do not stray for long, you will be able to listen: to others, to the Universe, and to your own deeper soul.

It is most important now, especially as we move through the potential confusion and chaos of Mercury Retrograde and other important aspects now, to let go to the Bigger Picture, even while you are crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s in your life. Do not be limited by the view of the little picture. There is meaning to all that is happening and the little voice inside your soul, the one you are in touch with while meditating or being in nature, will align you and connect you even and especially during life’s storms.

This week, besides Mercury going Retrograde, Neptune changes directions and goes Retrograde on Monday June 9.   So now and for the next several days, things may be more confusing and out of control.  But they also hold the potential for more synchronicity and magic too.

Neptune brings the flow of the inner tides through our consciousness, brings the music of the spheres through our hearts.

If you can stay surrendered and in your heart, not straining your brain for answers, open to the magic, you will be taken into the flow and into the connections that bring all together in Oneness.  There you will be shown the signs and symbols, the synchronicities, the magic.

All is possible, win/win is there for all disputes, all seeming problems have solution or at least meaning.

Later in the week, on Friday the 13th, there is a Full Moon in Sagittarius at 12:11 AM EDT. This particular Full Moon is always sorting through the facts and evidence for meaning and solution.  This Full Moon contains the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Sagittarius. Gemini is about information and facts that are sometimes coming in a fast and scattered pace. Sagittarius is about finding meaning and solution. Gemini and Sagittarius, especially during Mercury Retrograde, can bring issues that are very challenging to make sense of at times.  Gemini is also mental activity and Sagittarius is intuition and inspiration.  So bringing those together to solve problems is important at this Full Moon.

Friday the 13th is sometimes presented in a superstitious way as scary or something to be worried about.  This goes back to a prejudice against the Feminine mysteries and Feminine power.  13 is number of the Feminine, as there are 13 lunar “months” of the year while only 12 solar ones. And if Christ had 13 disciples instead of 12, as many believe Mary Magdalene was the 13th, there would obviously be a new Feminine flavor to the Christ story.

And Friday in may cultures is represented by name as Venus Day like in Italian which is Venerdi or even in English which is Frieda Day or Friday, Frieda being a Goddess similar to Venus.

So celebrate the Feminine this Friday the 13th with the Full Moon.

And then on Saturday June 14 Mars begins to trigger the Grand Cross as it square Pluto

So with all the aspects going on,  you may be challenged to bring your consciousness and “talents” to the “next level”.

All in all we are now in for a ride into more lively,  interesting, spirit evoking energies that may also seem rather scattered, confusing and chaotic at times.

See you next week,

Leo

On the Other Side of the Bridge and Astrology Forecast May 4-10

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 3, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

The buzz of intensity from April’s most powerful planetary movements may have lessened now, but please keep in mind that the Grand Cross, though weakened,  is still intact this coming week.

We may feel like dusting ourselves off from the storm debris of April and moving on, but the aftermath and aftershocks are now a reality.

We have, however, crossed the bridge between chapters of our life, and we are on the other side- in our personal new worlds.

Whatever events will occur over the next several weeks will have a reference point to the shakeups of March and April 2014.  They will be the result of what shifted during that time period.

Many people have been experiencing rather dramatic breakdowns of what was not working anymore,  and/or breakthroughs out of stuck places and into new zones of consciousness, reality or behavior.

For some of you the changes may have been more subtle, but nevertheless your reality has been shifting in some way or other.

Collectively our human family has really been evolving at a core level the last couple of months, and the United States just began this last month what will be a very powerful transformation.

The energetic motivations to leave our status quo “normal” default internal positions have been most powerful.  We are being pushed into new consciousness and new lives so that we can move in alignment with a human evolutionary leap needed now.

The force of light from an Age of Aquarius is strong and it is wanting to move through each of our consciousness’s and lives.  Any blocks our consciousness or lives seek to maintain because of understandable needs to feel the security of familiarity, cannot last.

So of course there are breakdowns of that which cannot move forward as it is.  But for some who were ready the breakthroughs have been fast and powerful and sometimes even feeling quite magical.

The Universe is blowing its winds at your back if you are ready for change.   Issues that have previously seemed stuck beyond repair have recently found new pathways of resolution or liberation.

If instead you are still trying to fix your problems with the same old tried but not true efforts,  the level of frustration and failure can become overwhelming.

There are solutions, but you must be willing to go outside your usual maze of patterns that keep your consciousness in a box.

Open up and trust your heart to lead the way.  It may bring you more chaos and energies you find it difficult to control, but it will bring you to realignment with the Universe and your authentic soul Self.  And you will feel more alive again.

There is still time now, before Mars goes Direct on May 19, to take care of your self and to get in touch with what you truly want and desire for your self.   In relationships the balance between your needs and desires and what your partner or friend may want or desire can be found before Mars goes back Direct.  Mars retrograde for a couple more weeks can also give you a reality check on your personal will and how that affects others.   And of course yours or others’ anger issues can also be looked at more deeply during the Mars Retrograde period.

After May 19 there should be a feeling of being more ready to move forward in new ways, new ways that are aligned with this new chapter in your life.

In the greater world,  the conflict in Ukraine; the “peace” process between Israel and Palestine; the conflict in Syria, and the meetings being held with Iran over its nuclear issues were all stirred up during the Eclipse Season.  Issues with North Korea and conflicts between China and Japan/South Korea/Phillipines over territory were also exacerbated this last month.

Racial issues were also stirred up more with the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers and with Clive Bundy, while anti government issues were stirred up over grazing land for that same Clive Bundy in Nevada.

And very importantly, Benghazi has moved back front and center in the news as a previously unknown email was revealed. That email suggests that the government was lying about the terrorist attack that killed 4 Americans in order to win the presidential election in 2012.

That revelation could move all the way into desires for impeachment of the president.

Keep in mind that what ever was shaken up during the Eclipse/Grand Cross season has more importance than it may look like on the surface right now.

For instance the situation in Ukraine is much more than just a conflict between Russia and Ukraine.  Much of the world has a stake in how this turns out, similar to what has been happening in Syria.

But unlike Syria, there is an overt battle of wills going on between Russia and the United States that has the potential (especially so because of the planetary energies synchronizing with this conflict) to blow up into a world war.

Drastic events in personal lives have been happening in order to break out of personal paradigms, beliefs or habits that have been blocking the now very powerful frequencies of new consciousness of a new age.

And the greater world will also need more drastic events to unfold in order for us to have open doors into collective new consciousness for evolution into a new age.

These earth shaking and human changing events will soon become much stronger, and will stay strong at least over the next 18 months or so.

For the immediate week ahead, however,  we are in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon on April 29. Change is still blowing in.

But at the same time it is very important now to take care of your self, nurture and heal your self, keep your self grounded and sane.

The changes are inevitable, but how you handle them is under your control.   If you add to your stress with blame and judgment, beating up your self or others, you are missing the opportunities now to open to healing and solution, to breakthroughs and new pathways.   It is healthy to take responsibility for what one may have done wrong, and to learn from one’s mistakes. But it is counterproductive and unhealthy to beat up your self or others for things not turning out how you wanted them to be.

Personal growth and evolution are dependent on each of us knowing we are on a human path that requires us to be learning as we go, not being perfect at any point along the way.

See you next week,

Leo
