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.

Now.

Till next week,

Leo

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

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So take off the uniform and think for yourself.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo

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.
