Group Action and Astrology Forecast January 21-27.

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 20, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Sun just went into Aquarius on January 19, and on January 20 is the Women’s March.

This is a follow-up to last year’s march, which yelled loud and clear the power of women in their desire to end sexual abuse, power abuse, and generally unfair gender conditions in the USA and world.

Eclipse Season began last week, and on January 31 there is the first of two eclipses in a row.  It is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo. Then on February 15 there is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.

This Eclipse Season, with an emphasis on Aquarius, is very much about group power.  So the Women’s March is very aligned with that focus.

As we have stated before Leo and Aquarius are in large part about power of the One (Leo) and power of the Group (Aquarius).

The Women’s March last January 21 2017 happened also during Sun in Aquarius, but this year group action of Women is more influential than it was then.

This is partly because we are in Eclipse Season already this year, but it is also because of the sexual and power abuse revelations recently.

And as we get deeper this year into Winter 2018 Eclipse Season, we will see more group social action as well as more executive action against the voices of the group.

The Senate right now has asserted its power to shut down the government in reaction to Trump’s executive desire to put through a funding bill that is aligned with what he wants.

I believe we can expect this Eclipse Season, especially so as we get close to the Aquarius Solar Eclipse on February 15, even more powerful group action.

That could very well include group actions counter to the USA power base, as well as stronger attempts to impeach and/or dis-empower the President of the USA.

In that regard there will be more conflict around the Israeli/Palestinian issue. The UN already passed a policy to negate the American unilateral decision to recognize Jerusalem as the sole Capital of Israel.

In your own life, are you a member of any socially conscious groups that you feel quite resonant with?

Do you usually feel like an outsider in group situations? Do you prefer a strong leader over a committee of people?

Aquarius is an interesting sign in that it is about two seemingly very different traits.

Aquarius is about being different than the norm, very individualistic and sometimes considered weird.

At the same time Aquarius is about being in a group, with a group cause.

So it seems one will either be estranged from the group because it does not fit in, or it fits into the group, often by “wearing the same uniform” as everyone else.

And this is where we get to Aquarius at its  best being “Diversity within Unity”.

When one can be distinctly individualized, true to one’s uniqueness, yet at the same time within the Unity of the group, Aquarius is best fulfilled.

And how does Leo, its polar opposite, fit into this equation?

Leo, whose ruling “planet” is the Sun, can provide the fuel of energy to the group as a leader in alliance with the group intentions.  The Sun in the solar system provides the light and warmth to the planets travelling around it, not dominating but facilitating their actions and life.

The heart is the part of the body affiliated with the Sun and Leo.  And the heart (and heart chakra)  provides the fuel of energy for the body and soul to be alive. The circulatory system is Aquarius the water bearer, delivering the lifeblood through the body’s network.

So this Eclipse Season, how can you best balance your group and social principles (Aquarius) with your personal heart’s desires (Leo)?

Too much Aquarius puts one too focused on one’s mind, figuring what is most socially conscious.  Too much Leo puts a person too much in one’s heart for what is attractive and serves one’s desires..

For instance, shopping for a car can be about getting one that is good for the environment and best for the family and family wallet (Aquarius).  Or it can be focused on getting the shiny red one that opens up one’s heart with happiness (Leo).

In world dynamics, too much Leo gives us a dictator. Too much Aquarius gives us a legislative body, group or committee that gets nothing done.

So the Sun is in Aquarius this week,  and the lunar cycle is in the waxing half of its cycle, moving toward a powerful climax at the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius/Leo on January 31.

Mid week Mercury will be conjunct Pluto in Capricorn, tending our minds toward deep and serious thought and communication.

And then on Friday the 26th of January, Mars will leave deep, intense, and sometimes darkly brooding Scorpio; for fiery, inspired, joyful, adventurous and sometimes impulsive Sagittarius.  It will stay in Sagittarius until the 17th of March.

This adds some yang Fire to the mostly yin Earth and Water we have been slushing through.

Mars in Sagittarius will open up our life energy portals, tending more toward action, upliftment, and wanting to “jump right in”.

That is only 5 days before the Lunar Eclipse, so energies in general are then intensifying, causing more possibility for breakdowns and breakthroughs in our consciousness and lives.

Change and transformation are swirling through our lives more, and if you want to unchain yourself from stuck situations, people, or thought, this Eclipse Season is a great time to do so.

For Eclipse Season, in the world keep your eye on  the Russia-gate investigation, the Winter Olympics in Korea, and increasing tension in Syria and Israel/Palestine. These and other world situations will become more important. Look at the stock market and economy closely too for signs of coming changes.

In your own personal life, stay on your toes for potential change, open your mind and heart to life more than before, yet at the same time keep your sanity and stay centered.

As always meditation is one of the best aids during times of intensity and change.

All that happens is for a reason and for what is best for your soul’s journey.

So know that the change and transformation in your life now has purpose, especially so if you have purpose for your life.

Till next week,

Leo

Making it Real and Astrology Forecast January 7-13

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 6, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This last week was meant to be a wake-up call (Uranus Direct) that motivates us to get  outside old boxes in our minds, hearts, and lives. 

In so doing, we release that which has blocked our way, and we are then liberated from the chains of old beliefs, decaying patterns, and crusty habits of living and expressing.

We are getting ready to make the needed changes that will help us to lead our lives in a more aligned and authentic way.  It is time for “out with the old,  get ready for the new.”

2018 has just begun, and will take us further forward on a ride of transition between the old and new- in our personal lives and in our global lives.

This week the intensity amps up and seriousness gets stronger.  That which is frivolous, superficial, or light and airy will have little space in our life rooms for expression.

It might be needed and would be appreciated, but it is not what we are being presented with energetically this week.

On Saturday eve Mars conjuncts Jupiter in Scorpio, which increases intensity and emotional volatility.   That intensity and seriousness will extend into Sunday and all through next week, as Sun and Venus in Capricorn make sextile to Jupiter in Scorpio; Mars in Scorpio makes sextile to Pluto in Capricorn; Sun and Venus in Capricorn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn; Moon in Scorpio from mid day Tuesday till Friday; and finally  Jupiter in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Scorpio on the 15th.

You will notice that all these planets and configurations are in Capricorn and Scorpio.

Those two signs “get down to business”, see at the core of truth, are very focused, and do not like time wasted by the trivial and superficial.

And most of all,  those two signs are about being REAL.  So this coming week, it will be difficult to avoid and escape.  Work is good.  Going to your personal underworld is good.  Being serious is aligned. Logical and organized is good.  Getting to what is important is needed.  Being present is required.

This week energies are yin, so we move yin-ward, so to speak; and this is especially so beginning late Monday as we enter the 4th and last quarter phase of the Moon’s cycle.

That 4th quarter will last until January 16 at the Capricorn New Moon.

So this week gives us mostly Capricorn and Scorpio.  Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which rules gravity. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto which rules the underworld.   

So you can see that movement is down to Earth and down under the Earth’s surface.  And that is what is happening for each of us too.

It is time to make things real, to make things work, to be more involved with manifesting (or at least making serious plans to manifest), building,  and grounding your ideas and ideals, your dreams, and your future plans.

In the greater world, issues will get more real there too.  It should be easier to see the grounded truths, without so much BS or fluffy marketing and spinning of the truth.

The stock market might also be getting a reality check, as might the economy in general.

Bubbles are ready to be broken, in our minds and in the world.

If you have wanted to talk frank and real- with authority- to someone in your life, this is a time to do it.  Honesty is now the best policy, especially with yourself.

What needs to be made real, to be faced straight on in your life?  There is no running away now, it is time.

There will be a potential explosiveness wanting to rise from the depths at times this week also.  Be aware of what is boiling beneath the surface of your mind and emotions.

Do your best to be in control of your expression of it.  Otherwise something may trigger its ugly expression, as you will lose control.

There is much beneath the surface that wants to come up to be expressed and dealt with now.

Then you can release it, let it go, purge it.  Do not judge it, just release it.  That will clear out inner blocks in your psyche, chakra system, and body, so you can move forward without so much inner baggage. Then you can reintegrate, re-center, and align with your Soul, Higher Self, and Universe.

Then on the 16th at the Capricorn  New Moon, there is movement forward, movement that is organized and under control.

That New Moon also opens up Winter 2018 Eclipse Season.  

The first eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo on January 31.  Then there is another eclipse:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.

The Winter Olympics will be held in South Korea from February 9- February 25.

This is smack dab within the Eclipse Season, straddling the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on the 15th.

North and South Korea are planning to talk this week with one another, this week of seriousness.  This will be getting them ready for the Olympics in Korea, but also will assist the movement of negotiations between them on the nuclear issues.

I know this: If the USA goes ahead with military drills with South Korea this winter, there will be war. If they do not just postpone, which they are doing for the Olympics, but also cancel the drills, and North Korea stops doing nuclear tests; then conditions will be set for a more peaceful potential.

And you can also expect other difficult world situations to get more serious too now, like in Iran where massive protests have broken out, or in Israel/Palestine where Jerusalem has become an explosive issue.

And the explosive potential is there this week in the world and in our own emotional body.

This can be a very good week for setting a foundation or making grounded reality for your life and for what you want to build and manifest in this New Chapter of life.

All planets are now going Direct until March 8 when Jupiter goes Retrograde. So all systems are go now for building your new cycle of life.

Till next week,

Leo

Bless the World and Astrology Forecast December 24-30

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 23, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving through a turning point now as we have experienced the New Moon in Sagittarius, Winter Solstice conjunct Saturn and Mercury finally going Direct.

And this was an especially difficult Mercury Retrograde for many, with many people reporting difficulties with electronics and technology, as well as challenges with cars.

Did you also experience people or memories coming back into your life?  Did you feel tempted to make big decisions? Did you feel confusion or difficulty in your thinking? Were you challenged in understanding what others communicated to you, or did others have difficulty understanding you?  Did you question what you had previously decided or what directions to take in your life?

Well now clarity will begin to form, and if you wait another week or so, you can be more sure that what you are thinking or deciding is correct.

This is a challenging time to be on the Earth in America.  We have never experienced a President like Trump.  Many are very worried about the direction the USA is taking and what its future will bring.

Trump is part of the downfall of an Empire and Superpower. It is meant to fall as did the other Superpower, the Soviet Union, in the 1990’s.

This is all a clearing of an old paradigm from an old Age.  Abuse of Power is its name, and the scandals of sexual power abuse are out in the open here in the United States.

This was part of an old cultural paradigm for relationships between men and women.  This is dying too.

Speaking of abuse of power,  are you aware of what  happened at the UN this last week?

The USA and Trump declared Jerusalem to be the Capital of Israel, effectively denying the Palestinians and Islamic World of their part of Jerusalem, as previously defined by UN resolutions.

UN members last week put out a new resolution condemning Trump’s declaration and reiterating their allegiance to East Jerusalem being the Capital of the Palestinians.

Nikki Haley, diplomatic head of the USA for the UN, threatened to remember who would vote against them in this new resolution.  She made it obvious that the USA would consider holding back money from those countries.

Nevertheless, a vast majority of nations still condemned the USA declaration of Jerusalem as only the possession of Israel, with an overwhelming vote against that USA declaration.

It is so important now for each of us to distinguish between healthy empowerment and abuse of power.

Holding power over others to take what you want from them is abuse of power.  Using power to destroy others is abuse of power.

Empowering yourself in order to stand up for yourself or stand up for what you believe in is healthy power. And that is important for us to be able to move into a new paradigm and Age of Aquarius.

In using power wisely and appropriately, we are not putting ourselves above others, but we are not putting ourselves below others either.

The Diversity within Unity paradigm needs for power to be distributed amongst people or nations.  In that regard we are moving toward a Multi Polar global community of nations, without superpowers or dominating Empires.

Equality, and inalienable rights to self determination preclude any nation from demanding how another nation lives, unless that nation directly injures other nations.

Our capitalistic democracy should not be forced on any other culture or nation. And every nation has a right to defend itself, especially against a country (USA) that has more weapons of mass destruction than anyone else and is the only one to have used them, killing thousands of other humans in Japan to end World War II.

We need to treat other countries as equals, and learn to listen and have dialogue with them.   Threatening to destroy them creates an atmosphere that promises violence and destruction.  And of course they in turn will threaten to destroy us. Old Paradigm is what needs to be destroyed.

As we move closer to 2018 this coming week, we begin to take in the reality of Saturn moving into Capricorn at the Winter Solstice.

Saturn in Capricorn conjunct the Winter Solstice Sun happened last in 1644, so it is a rare occurrence.

And it is part of the signature of the winter season we have now entered. Collectively we face events this winter that will have a great influence on the direction of our world and human family.  Saturn is the hand of time, gravity,  strict rules, clear definitions, endings, commitments, and “fated” events.

And also this winter we will experience 2 eclipses: A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on January 31, and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.

That Solar Eclipse will be directly opposite the powerful Total Solar Eclipse from August 2017.

What was begun then will be taken to the next level this winter 2018 Eclipse Season.

This week Venus moves out of Sagittarius and conjuncts that Saturn in Capricorn on Monday Christmas Day.

We may experience in our relationships a deeper sense of reality or acceptance of what we cannot deny anymore. This could have an effect on family situations this holiday.

Also on Christmas Day the Moon will be in Pisces, a good sign to be able to feel Christ consciousness, an ability for empathy and compassion for others.

We also continue this week to be in the waxing half of the lunar cycle that began at the Sagittarius New Moon last week.

The waning last half begins on New Year’s Day January 1, at the Full Moon in Cancer, to be followed the next day by Uranus turning Direct.  We of course will talk more about that next week.

I will also do some forecasting about 2018 in next week’s blog. Then early in the new year I will put out a podcast and a video Forecast for 2018.

For those of you who resonate with the holidays, I hope they are meaningful and full of love.  And for those of you who do not, I also hope these days are meaningful and full of love.

Till next week,

Leo

Out with the Old, In with the New, and Astrology Forecast July 30-August 5

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 29, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now pretty solidly into the Eclipse Season, even though we have not yet experienced the first eclipse yet.  It will be on August 7, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius.

We entered Eclipse Season at the Leo New Moon on July 23. It is the first of two Leo New Moons, the 2nd one a powerful Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo.

The sign Leo at its worst is big Ego,  and dominating personality.

So last week not long after the Leo New Moon we are introduced to Anthony Scaramucci, the new Communications Director of the White House; and General John Kelly, the new White House Chief of Staff.  These are dominating men for sure, with large egos.

This shows us Trump wants to get even more dominating and fascistic in his governance. They, especially Scaramucci, will be mini-me’s of Trump.

Also this last week to start up the Eclipse Season, North Korea tested a missile that is said to be able to reach New York and even Chicago.   And Iran also tested a a long range missile this last week.

And in Israel/Palestine much violence has been erupting around Temple Mount and Al Aqsa Mosque praying compound for Muslim worship. This is an especially holy place for both Israel and the Arab world and very hotly disputed for who has ownership.

From a much more positive viewpoint this past week, pointing us to the Age of Aquarius:  The UN has stated it wants to ban pesticides, which will negatively affect Monsanto; and Tesla is intending to mass produce battery operated cars at an affordable price. Also the attempt of pushing through an even worse health care plan was defeated in the Senate. I know the day is not far away when single payer health insurance will be what the USA has in place for universal health care.

As we often state, there is the old world which will now come at us in an often monstrous way in order to show us what we need to get rid of in our world; while the light of the new world comes pouring in to show us what is coming in from the Age of Aquarius.

Look at your own life that way too.  Stay present to see old ways of being in your life that need to be released.  And open up to embrace new ways that are more healthy for you, are aligned with your authenticity, and are connected to the new age we are moving into.

We are all going through this process to some extent, and now in Eclipse Season, there will be events and inner stirrings that will accelerate the process of transformation.

The events from the old world are and will continue to be events that can evoke great fear in us. We must stay connected to the bigger picture, to the Universe and to love and trust in our hearts. The focus cannot be on the fear or hatred.

Trump’s administration, from both a negative and positive standpoint, is weakening the standing of the USA in the world.  The positive part of that is that the USA is moving toward being an equal member of the world community.  President Obama was moving in that direction already.

Now this administration is taking us temporarily backwards into “America First” and dominance, not relationship with the rest of the world.

This is and will continue to cause countries like Iran and North Korea to want to flex their military muscles. This old attitude will also tend to move us toward a greater likelihood of war.

As we have said before, this month of August is a major turning point to show us what direction we are moving in with our military and economy.

And of course that military and economy are what make up the Military/Industrial Complex that dominates the USA and world.  It is what will need to break down in order for the USA and world to transform into the Age of Aquarius.

This coming week, just before the Lunar Eclipse next week, brings us Venus moving into Cancer;  Uranus changing directions to Retrograde;and Jupiter square Pluto.

Venus moves into Cancer this Monday July 31. It will stay in Cancer until August 26. While in Cancer, the planet of love and relationship seeks a nurturing kind of loving, one that is understanding, supportive, and soul connected.  If your relationships lack this quality, it will be much more evident this month.

You may not be giving others this nurturance, but even more likely you are not receiving this nurturance.

On August 2/3 Uranus stops and then goes from Direct to Retrograde.  When a planet changes directions its energy and purpose are in the spotlight of our lives.

Uranus acts contrary to the accepted and often conventional ways, it rules rebellion and revolution. Uranus also wants liberation from anything and anyone that “chains” it up.

Uranus takes us outside of any boxes of thinking we have been stuck in, helping us to think inventively about possibilities.

And of course Uranus is the “ruling” planet of Aquarius, so let it help you this week to get you out of ruts and old stuck ways. It can then help you to further your movement toward new ways, even if those new ways are not considered “normal” by society, family, or even yourself.

Surprising events in the world may also occur.  And for this Uranus movement and for Eclipse Season in general, natural calamities are more likely, like Earthquakes, Hurricanes, etc.

Jupiter square Pluto on Friday August 4 is the most intense and powerful aspect this week. It is an appetizer to the Lunar Eclipse next Monday the 7th.

It is important this month to allow yourself to let go and take the ride.  Try not to judge too much, make absolute pronouncements or decisions. Let it all play out and do your best to trust the process.

This advice will be especially pertinent with Mercury going Retrograde on August 12, in between the two eclipses.

Do your best not to fret or look down for long.  No one event or thought or emotional eruption is the end of any story, so to speak.  Let it all play out.

This is an important month for motivating us to commit ever more strongly to our own growth and evolution, to our contribution to our world in its journey into an Age of Aquarius.

There will be magic, synchronicity, and symbols from the Universe this month.  There will be shows of love you did not expect.  There will be times when you can clearly see there is a new world we are moving into.

The trick is to concentrate on those things, not focus on what will bring you more fear and worry.  It is true the old world will be showing its worst face and attempting to keep the old paradigm alive.

So it is our role to show the new world’s best face and to make sure we connect with the new paradigm being born.

Please take a look at new video I made about the coming eclipses:

Till next week,

Leo

There is a video of my talk at the Enlightenment Expo in May that my friend Jonne Trees has recorded:     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D52FYcHTM3U.

The subject is about navigating the planetary changes this year.

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

If you need any help with your relationship now, I have done couples’ counseling for many years. Do you need to identify and work out old patterns? Do you need to decide whether to stay or go?  I use the astrological model to help in the counseling process. We can use Skype if outside New England. Write me at soulus@aol.com if interested.

Letting Go of the Baggage and Astrology Forecast June 12-18

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 11, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Life is on hold until after Mars goes Direct on June 29. This does not mean you can do nothing in the interim;  it just means there is a feeling and reality that efforts to direct one’s attention to big steps forward are difficult if not impossible.

While we are waiting for the gate into a new phase of life to open, many of us are facing some real challenges. In fact for many their most sensitive and diffcults wounds or traumas have been triggered.

They are caught up in emotions that have been overwhelming their usual stable sanity.

Seems to me that we are cleaning up as much baggage as we can before we face new challenges and opportunities on the other side of the gate.

So go to your healers and counselors now to assist your journey or spend more time in meditation or spiritual practices now.

I know the world seems crazy now, but it is really a result of changing tides from one age to another.  We  are collectively and individually in transition and working to heal, release and let go of old tapes and conditioned programs in our heads and hearts.

On the contrary some of you are enjoying the ride into this new chapter of life.   Emotional baggage has not surfaced in any difficult way as of yet and the world’s troubles and confusions have not caught up to you yet.

But make no mistake, world craziness will accelerate soon, with important world events screaming for attention.

The Middle East will very soon erupt explosively, with emphasis on Israel, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, Iran, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia.

The political presidential landscape will get even crazier as scandals,  illegalities, corruptions, and secrets break out in the open.

Our global economy will face great challenges soon also.

At the same time protests and revolutionary energies and actions will increase exponentially.   Spritual enlightenment, synchronicites and awakenings will multiply.  People will have a much stronger sense of unity with their fellow human, as we all are motivated to change the world for the better.

The astrological reflection of this current change sits mainly with Saturn square Neptune which is good for this whole year but exact this week Friday the 17th of June.

As we have stated in previous forecasts,  Order and boundaries and status quo (Saturn) are challenged by disorder, open boundaries, confusion, chaos and change (Neptune).

We have mentioned immigration issues and redrawn state boundaries as part of this Saturn/Neptune process. And to add to this theme, later this month, Brits will be voting on staying or leaving the European Union.  That vote will greatly affect the economic stablity of Europe and beyond.

So much is changing, yet some like Donald Trump are wanting to turn back the clock  to the ’50s in America, before civil rights breakthroughs or globalism.

Do we need to stop to turn back the clock for awhile, or is it time to go further with revolutionary and evolutionary progress.

Voters in the United States will be letting us know their feelings on the matter come November.

In addition to Saturn/Neptune and Mars Retrograde, we are approaching Summer Solstice with a Full Moon joining it on June 20. We will talk more about that next week.

This week Neptune ( as it is squaring Saturn) changes directions to go retrograde on Monday the 13th.  This puts Neptune vibes in the psychic airwaves.  Neptunes is inner directed, aligned with the inner spiritual plane and rules psychic insights, insights in general,  fogginess and confusion, gentle poetic feelings, drugs, alcohol, chaos, and escapism.

If you are taking the Higher Self route of spiritual connection, it wil be best this week to let go and surrender to that which is greater, to trust the Universe, and to allow the process to play itself out without needs to control or dominate or think too much to figure it all out.

The Sun makes “minor” aspects to Uranus and Mars on Tuesday putting emphasis on independence, self expression, and empowerment.  It is time to stop being a doormat and to speak up.

Venus moves into Cancer on Friday the 17th.  It will stay in Cancer for about a month.  As it leaves Gemini, heart energies shift from light and lively to Cancerian softness and nurturance.

It is time to go deeper in your intimacies with loved ones, to open your heart and trust again.  This trust will allow you to be more vulnerable, which will open you up to greater nurturance from others.

It will also open your heart up to those who need care and concern from you, so you can give them the nurturance they need also.

Mars makes a quincunx (150 degree) angle to Uranus on Saturday the 18th. Time to break out of the box and let more assertive revolutionary energy into your consciousness and bones.  Life is changing and so are you.

Late June and July are lunching pads for new beginnings and startups.  Best now to heal your wounds and traumas as best you can, so you can have less baggage to haul around in this new Era of our lives.

And then in the 2020’s The Age of Aquarius comes into its own.

Till next week,

Leo

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday August 6 at 1 PM  EDT.  The series will continue Saturdays August 13 and 20th at 1 PM to finish up the series.   Each class will last approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.
I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world events  will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is to be paid prior to the classes.
 Recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.

 

 

Mutable Grand Cross New Moon and Astrology Forecast June 5-12

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 4, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are experiencing an important New Moon in Gemini on June 4 at 11 PM EDT.   The lunar cycle it begins will stretch through Mars going Direct on June 29.   And most importantly it forms a Mutable Grand Cross that includes Saturn square Neptune.

The Grand Cross has the Sun, Moon, and Venus in Gemini;   Saturn opposing those planets in Sagittarius;  Neptune squaring both those position in Pisces;  and Jupiter opposing Neptune and squaring the other planets from Virgo.

Grand crosses pull us in 4 different directions. The best way to handle one is to let go and take the ride, not try too hard to figure things out or control things.

In this case the 3 Gemini planets seek to receive and deliver information; Saturn in Sagittarius seeks to put information together into a defined opinion or conclusion;  Neptune in Pisces seeks to let go and trust;  Jupiter in Virgo seeks order.

All these planets together in mutable signs tell us to let go to the winds of change.  There is so much change in the air now as we all adjust to this new chapter of experience we find ourselves in.

As we gather new information and insights, we are searching  for ways to find some answers and conclusions.  But there is a tendency now to focus too much on solving issues. This can bring us to mental overload and being obsessed.   Neptune seeks to help us to surrender our chattering minds or to find escapes or indulge in addictions. It is best now to trust the process while believing the answers will come in at just the right time.

This Grand Cross New Moon, however, should be good for interesting conversations, for lively discussions with differences in opinion.

It may also be a good time for new ideas or ways of thinking and seeing things.

This is the last New Moon before Mars goes Direct, and it represents us revving up our engines before we drive more fully forward after June 29.

This is also a good time to be aware of messages from spirit, to be aware of signs, symbols, and synchronicities.   One should be open to changes of mind too.

Saturn square Neptune within the Grand Cross shows us order versus disorder and boundaries and limits versus openness and porousness.

The greater world is in such disorder now trying to find its way.  Ther is an old system that is running out of steam.  There is little honesty, integrity, and heart inside the empty old structures.

The Republican and Democrat parties are representative of this old system.  Bernie Sanders is a voice outside the sytem, as up to this year he has indenified with being an Independent Senator.

The Libertarian and Green parties also represent more pure and uncorrupted voices outside the system.  But how much chance do its candidates have? If the dominating and controlling debate committees run by the Democrat and Republican parties found a place on the stage for other parties to participate in Presidential debates, the American public would benefit greatly.

But I think you can see the Saturn/Neptune square playing out in the presidential race.  The Old Guard has been trying to maintain the old order, while candidates like Trump and Sanders are bringing new ways that are bringing with them more chaos and disorder and even riots.

As we get into the political conventions this summer, order versus disorder wil play out even more, and who knows how it will all pan out in this New Era.

In the greater world, and especially the Middle East, Order versus Chaos will continue to play out. Islamic State has broken apart old state borders and threatens more chaos. A very conservative Israeli government and an increasingly desperate Palestinian community shows potential greater conflict also.

China in the far east has been building new places in the ocean that it claims it owns while other countries strongly disagree. And Taiwan is now, with its new President, showing greater signs of independence from China.

And other countries and immigration will continue this breaking down of old borders and boundaries.

This is all meant to be as we leave the Pisces Age for the Age of Aquarius.   We are in a very intense transition between ages,  and the old will continue to break down, though leaders will sometimes stubbornly and violently hold onto the way it used to be.

This is not about the bad guys from a bad age fighting the good guys from a good age,though it may feel like that sometimes.

It is really like nature changing its seasons, except more intensely and dramatically.

Thus if you are a progressive who has much anger against more conservative voices in our world, keep in mind that they represent the part of all of us that is resistant to big change, that holds onto the old and comfortable.

They are not the enemy.

And if you are more conservative and like the world just as it is. do not demonize those who want change as crazy communists or luny dreamers bringing unnnatural chaotic ways into your life.

This week you should be taken out of old ruts and depressed feelings, as this is a stimulating if perhaps confusing New Moon Grand Cross.

Sometimes old ruts can feel like a comfort zone even if not good for us.  Do your best now to let these winds take you out of the ruts.

But it will not be time yet to move fully forward personally or globally. That will wait until July and August.

Till next week,

Leo

The webinar series will begin on August 6 and continue on August 13 and 20.  $125  for the series, payable before the classes.

Waiting in Transition and Astrology Forecast May 8-14

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 7, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in a holding pattern now, waiting for the call to move forward.  Mars and Mercury are Retrograde: Mercury till May 22 and Mars till June 29.

As we just passed through a New Moon in Taurus while all this Retrograde business is going on, we need to be in “get moving” mode even if you do not know where to go.

So get things done around the house, get your finances in order, run errands, clean up the old both physically and mentally/emotionally.

Taurus is a grounded, practical sign; but it is also a sign that appreciates the body and Earth.  It sees much of life through its senses, smelling and touching and tasting.  It loves to enjoy its body through comfort also, so spas and hammocks work well for them.

Since it is “Taurus time” for all of us now, it is a good time for each of us to do what Taurus likes and needs to do.

Since we gotta wait before moving more fully into the new era of our lives, it is good now to keep busy; but it is even more important to do inner work.

It is time with Mercury and Mars retrograde, to feel your past, to do some healing, to release and let go what represents the old era of your life.

It will behoove you to do this inner work, as you do not need baggage from the past as you move into the new era of your life.

Of course one cannot totally remove what one has been traumatized or hurt by in one’s past; but now at the Retrogrades and while you are in transition between eras, the winds of the Universe are at your back for inner healing and release.

In the greater world things have also slowed down, with no big events to speak of.

Politically in the USA the movement for electing President is slowing down as it is more obvious who the candidates will be.

But we do not know for sure who will win or what the process to get there will be like.

Our movement forward is on hold now with conversation about who will support Trump, with questions about Clinton’s troubles with her emails, with unknowns about how Sanders and his values will fit into the democratic platform at the convention.

But much more important than the personalities is what each candidate represents for our world, what direction America is moving toward.

Who wins the Presidency will show us loud and clear who we are now and what we value.

And now during the Retrograde, without the distraction of important primaries anymore, we will be able to truly get to know who the candidates are and what they represent.

On the surface Trump is a wealthy brash celebrity.  What else does he represent on a more substantial level?

Clinton is a woman and part of the Clinton political royalty, but what does she represent on a deeper more substantial level?

With Sanders it is more obvious what he represents on a substantial level. He has been loud and clear for many years.

So we are all processing the primary season we have just gone though- 17 republican candidates later- 3 Democratic candidates later.

We can sit back and wait for the party conventions, which occur in July- after Mars goes direct.

And for all of us July is the time of getting our life automobiles started up again for a drive into the new era of our lives.

This does not mean that personal and global events will stop until July.  The personal events over the next couple months, while the retrogrades continue, will help us to further release old mental tapes, old traumas and hurts, old patterns of Self denial and co-dependency.

The events that happen over the next couple of months will also help us to see more clearly our new era of life, to help us to embrace or at least accept our new life energies.

Remember that most important is how we are shifting energetically, because our energetic shifting will determine what and who we will attact into our lives.

It is  good time now to stay very present with our selves and our interactions with others. Watch and feel what is shifting inside.  You are changing at a deep cellular level, changing to be aligned with the energies of the Age of Aquarius that we are on the cusp of.

Everything has been accelerated and intensified, so we can do the inner work necessary to change our vibrations and lives.

Transition between worlds is not easy, in fact it can be quite painful at times, especially so when faced with old traumas and wounds. But the new birth can feel so good, so inspiring and heartfelt.

In the global world transition during this current Retrograde period, look for signs and symbols to tell you where things are headed now.

Look closely at Syria and Iraq, North Korea, Israel and Palestine, China and Japan.

Look more closely at the economy and stock market for signs and symbols of change.

It is the military/economic complex that hold up our old world.  There will be bigger and bigger cracks in its structure if we are to experience the kind of transformation necessary to bring the birth of the Age of Aquarius.

So even if some of the world events make you feel very insecure, remember that just like in your personal transformation, there is a need to face old energies and emotions, beliefs, and perceptions that need to be released.

The transitions can be painful and scary at times, but necessary in the process of positive Transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

Til next week,

Leo

While Mercury is retrograde, I am considering changing the webinar dates from beginning June 4 to beginning August 6- just considering. Many have shown interest in the webinar series.Please give me your feedback for dates.  It is greatly needed. And for those of you who have given deposit already, your input is most important.  Here is what the webinar will continue to be:

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday June 4 at 1 PM  EDT.  At this point I am leaning toward Saturdays June 18 and June 25 at 1 PM to finish up the series. The second and third dates are not set in stone yet.   Each class will last approximately 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.
I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world evetns will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is to be paid prior to the classes.
Audio recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.
