Wake Up Time and Astrology Forecast May 13-19

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 12, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Much is shifting this week

We jump out of the last quarter phase of the Moon on Tuesday May 15.   That is because a new lunar cycle begins with the New Moon in Taurus that day. It is at 7:48 AM EDT.

Before that new moon and after it, there are more energetic shifts.

Before the New Moon in Taurus on the 15th, Mercury conjuncts Uranus while it squares Uranus on Saturday the 12th and Sunday the 13th.

That signifies a wake-up call to move out of stuck places, and it may happen in unexpected or even seemingly irrational ways.

One can be liberated now from old patterns, beliefs, or habits.   Go with that wake-up even if it feels uncomfortable or unfamiliar.

This waking up and breaking out energy continues much of the week as Mars squares Uranus on the 16th.

If you have any mental or emotional cobwebs that have stayed in slumber even though Winter has long passed, this week should help sweep them away.

There should be no more reason to put off, or rationalize away, or be distracted from what is real and true for you.

You are being taken out of the old mental boxes of limited and limiting options, in order to see more clearly.

Often old patterns or ego stories keep us locked up in the stuck ruts of the past.

You are in a New Chapter now, and you will be better served with less emotional or mental baggage to carry with you.

You can use this week to shed some of that baggage, as you no longer need to continue Groundhog Day over and over again.

Liberation begins with waking up from old ways.  People are always telling me they wish they would have been different when they were younger, doing things differently.

But life does not work that way.  We wake up when it is time, and of course planetary movements let us know when it is time.

Uranus is the wake-up planet, and when it is strong in the collective as it is this week, or strong by transit to one’s personal natal chart; that is when energies of liberation from old ways or beliefs is strongest.

And with the New Moon in Taurus happening along with the Uranus movements,  we can take our next steps forward in our life’s journey.

This New Moon in Taurus coincides with so many important events in the Middle East and more specifically in Israel/Palestine.

Gaza is in much turmoil now; Palestinian Nakba Day is the 15th, symbolizing the 700,000  Palestinians who became homeless in 1948. The Muslim holiday Ramadan begins on the 16th and Israel celebrates the 70th anniversary of it modern birth on the 14th.

And most importantly, Trump has moved forward with his plan to move the USA embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, beginning on Monday the 14th.

It has been in Tel Aviv for many years; so yes it is a Uranus movement of breaking out of how things used to be.  But this is also bringing up much rage in the Palestinian and Muslim communities who see this move as a USA statement of making Jerusalem Israel’s property.  Jerusalem is considered sacred to Jews, Christians and Muslims.

Much of the transformation of our Earthly human community out of an Old Age is focused on the Middle East where so many religions and early civilizations were formed.

This is where so much now seems unsolvable, and so it is likely to ignite into a powerful place of transformation, as early as this year.  Many cultures and religions have envisioned an end of the old world and a rising of a new world at the End Times.

And many of those old cultures and religions believe this will be centered in the Middle East.

This coming Summer Eclipse Season has 3 eclipses and they are very connected to the charts of Israel, Iran, and Syria.  Much will be stirring up in those places this summer.

Also happening soon is the summit between USA and North Korea. June 12 this year is the chosen date. It will be in Singapore

That day is one day before the New Moon in Gemini and 2 days before Trump’s birthday.

But most importantly, it is conjunct the USA natal Mars, which can only happen once a year.   Mars is the god of war, so symbolically it does not seem like a good day for such a summit.

But right now it does appear that we are all moving toward peace with this summit, so maybe there is something I am not seeing in the symbols.

Yet historically, triggers to that same degree (21 degrees Gemini) have shown events like the beginning of World War II for America and John Kennedy’s assassination.

The Old Age and its decaying ways are in the process of dying and its death may be painful.

Do not get engulfed in the stories and dramas and fears that will come from the coming events. Be aware of what is happening, but do so as an observer not a participant.

Now we will need more and more to focus on the knowledge that we live in a meaningful Universe, one that is filled with love and truth, and is in transition into an Age of Aquarius.

Where we focus our energy now is important.  We can more ably focus on the love and truth of the Age of Aquarius, as we let go of the old beliefs and patterns that were drummed into us from the programming of our families and culture.

That programming perpetuates the ways of the Old Age and Old Paradigm. It keeps us in patterns that are toxic and dysfunctional, filled with fear and mistrust, enemies and separateness.

The coming storms will clear out the deadwood and create space for our new world’s ways.

As you clear out the old, magic and synchronicity come more alive, your life feels more meaningful and purposeful, and you get more comfortable being authentic and receptive to love.

This week provides us with the Uranus wake-ups and the New Moon in Taurus forward movement.

Those beginnings are potentially quite solid, as is Taurus. Those Taurus movements forward may also be rather slow.  Taurus themes of land, home, money, resources, nature, one’s body and nourishment are likely now.  Enjoy the pleasures of the body and the senses and solidify whatever you have previously envisioned or recently begun.

Uranus is not only in aspect to Mars and Mercury this week. It also makes its entry into Taurus after being in Aries for the last seven years. This year it will temporarily go back into Aries late this year and early in 2019.

Then is March 2019 it moves firmly into Taurus for the next 7 years. The last time Uranus was in Taurus was in 1935- 1942.   Uranus has an approximate 84 year cycle.

Themes from back then will resurface during the next 7 years or so.

So much has been shifting and changing for all of us lately, both collectively and personally.  Yes change can be challenging, yet the more we can dance with it instead of fearing and fighting it, the better off we will be.

Transformation cannot be stopped now, but the great opportunity is for better lives, better relationships, more passion and aliveness, more magic and meaning, more love and connection.

Take the ride.

till next week,

Leo

Black Panther and Astrology Forecast April 8-14

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we enter the darkening last quarter of the lunar cycle and the last week of Mercury Retrograde.

The actual beginning of the last quarter Moon happens in Capricorn early morning of Sunday April 8. It signifies Capricorn waiting patience holding back the new beginning of Aries.

This whole week shows nighttime energy, a symbol of the power of the Feminine.

The Black Panther has been showing itself to me just before my writing this blog today.

She is a symbol of the Dark Feminine, of Mystery, and she is strongest right at a New Moon, as that is the darkest time of the lunar cycle, right before the dawn of the Moon’s crescent light.

The Black Panther therefore represents death and rebirth, which happens as we transition from last quarter Moon to the New Moon in Aries on April 15. At that moment of transition, all is unknown and a mystery- no more past and a future not yet known.

We have been letting you know the importance of that New Moon in Aries, which happens to be closely conjunct the awakening lightning of Uranus. It will also be square the deeply transformational Pluto, which we will write more about next week.

So this week, before that New Moon, allow your self to go deeper into your own inner night, so you can release as much psychological baggage as possible. If you are confronted by your past, especially your old stories from the past, do not be afraid it is back in your life again.

It is showing up so you can see it another time before it is purged from the deep well inside your soul.

You no longer need to hold onto old demons or old ego stories that keep you chained to the past.

This is a big and important New Moon in Aries, on the same day as Mercury goes Direct.  So lightening your load of old garbage will make you more able to enter your New Chapter without undue restrictions.

During this Mercury Retrograde, have old friends or lovers come back to you in dreams or waking flashes of memory or even back in physical reality?

If so they are to remind you of that which has helped to create an old story or a continuing dysfunctional pattern you no longer need carry.

And they also may represent a part of your self you have abandoned that now needs to be re-membered in your soul and psyche.

The dark passage of the Black Panther is shown also by a Sun square Pluto aspect midweek.

The Sun is challenged then by “guardian of underworld” Pluto, darkening the light of the Sun.  Black Panther has also been represented in myth as that which swallow the light of a Solar Eclipse, which is always part of a New Moon.

On Saturday the 14th, a day before the Aries New Moon, bright inspirational Jupiter is in sextile aspect to the same darkening Pluto.

This sextile forms a Yod or “Finger of God” with the USA natal Mars in Gemini. That Mars in Gemini forms a very close conjunction with Trump’s natal Sun and opposite his natal Moon in Sagittarius.

the Yod forming with the USA Mars symbolizes an important turning point for USA military and police business. And of course Trump with his natal chart is an important player in this turning point.

It is quite revealing that there are important events less than a month after the New Moon in Aries.   

There is a summit between North and South Korean presidents in late April and a potential summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un in May. This meeting will bring peace or war to the world

Also in early May the USA and Trump decide whether to continue with the deal struck by President Obama with Iran.  If sanctions on Iran are brought back, that will nullify the Iran deal with the USA and bring increased danger in the Middle East. If the deal is kept peace will likely stay intact.

And also in mid May the USA is scheduled to move their embassy to Jerusalem after the recent declaration by president Trump that Jerusalemsy is the eternal Capitol of Israel.

The Palestinians and Muslim world see Jerusalem as their sacred city and claim the eastern half as their Capitol.

So you can see how putting the USA embassy there is a potentially triggering event, one that could bring renewed violence to the region. If Trump turns around and does not build the embassy, there will be a big shift away from war.

So it is easy to see how the Yod represents an important military turning point for the USA.

There are important new beginnings happening one way or another soon after the Yod and New Moon in Aries.

And this is true for your own life too, most especially if you have natal planets in late Aries. If so these new beginning will be very important ones for you.

Yet for everyone, we are at a point of “ready or not here we come”, as used to be yelled during childhood “hide and seek” games, signifying when there was no more time to try to find a place to hide.

And we will also not be able to hide in the slumber of winter rest anymore  It will be time to wake up at the Aries New Moon, especially so as awakening Uranus is an integral part of that New Moon structure.

And as Mercury will also be going Direct that day, the recent sleep will be beginning to lift from our eyes, in order to soon see what is happening and what direction to move toward.

Just as the aforementioned world events do not come until a month or so after the New Moon in Aries and Mercury Direct, you also can expect there to be some time before real clarity, direction, inspiration and/or important personal events are formed.

Best to see the New Moon/Mercury Direct time as an energetic turning point into the action of your new beginnings.. Be present to feel that energetic shift in the days surrounding the event.

Keep in mind however that this week is the week leading up to the New Moon in Aries and Mercury Direct, not the week it happens.

The light and energies are dimming this week, so you can be more immersed in your own inner consciousness.

The Moon (an important symbol of the Black Panther) will be darkening more and more each day this week.  And when it is totally dark before and during the New Moon in Aries, it is a perfect time to meditate, to make intention, to pray, to use visualization as a tool to co-create with the Universe.

This week shows the Black Panther getting stronger and stronger. It is interesting how the movie Black Panther is so popular in our culture now.

And synchronistically the issue of killing unarmed Black men by police has been recently triggered by the shooting of an unarmed Black man in Sacramento California.

Black Panther also represents the moment between death and life, a true time of transformation.

And the turning point at the New Moon in Aries with Mercury Direct on April 15 is the point between death of the old and birth of the new.

The Age of Aquarius is being born from the ashes of the Age of Pisces.  And no matter which way we turn after the Finger of God points the way, we still will be getting closer to the Age of Aquarius.

The only question is whether the path ahead will be rugged or more graceful.

Till next week,

Leo

Stand Up and Astrology Forecast March 11-17

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 10, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Most of this week has us in the last quarter of the lunar cycle.   That is until The New Moon in Pisces on Saturday March 17 at 9:12 AM EDT.

Yes for most we will be on Daylight Savings Time starting this Sunday the 18th.  So in a way we get mixed messages.   We get more waking light minutes of the day, while still in the dark of Winter and while moving through the last and darkening phase of the Moon.

Spring will begin next week on March 20th, but then will be closely followed by Mercury going Retrograde on March 22.

There is so much swirling in the world around us now, and much of it brings uncertainty and has us moving into unknown territory.

Trump and Kim Jong Un of North Korea seem to have agreed on a personal meeting that will apparently concentrate on North Korea denuclearizing.  With Mercury going Retrograde soon, there will likely be many difficulties on the path toward a meeting and denuclearizing.

Between now and April 15 at the Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus, Mercury going back Direct, and a Yod Finger of God aspect with the USA natal Mars, much will be shifting and changeable. 

That Finger of God to the USA natal Mars will be a major turning point for the USA military, the police, and gun laws.

North Korea will either look like a major conflict is on the way, or instead it will be more certainly moving toward a peaceful solution.  The meeting between the two leaders is intended to be by May.

And the USA is moving its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem also in May.  This could be cause for much anger in the Arab and Muslim world.

So you can see how the April 15 portal opening that includes the Yod to the USA Mars, may play out with North Korea and Israel/Palestine.

Keep in mind also that Donald Trump was born on a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius.  That new moon has the Sun at 22+ degrees Gemini and his Moon at 21+ degrees of Sagittarius. The USA natal Mars is at 21+ degrees of Gemini, so you can see that what is coming will powerfully affect both the USA and Donald Trump.

A few days later on the 18th, Saturn goes Retrograde and its gravitational certainty will be circulating strongly in our collective energy field. The feeling of fate is in the air then

Make no mistake about it, mid April is a major turning point for this country and world.

That does not mean big events will necessarily explode on that day, but it does mean the portal will open for major events coming soon afterward.

The stock market and economy also deserve attention now and after the portal opens.

Trump’s presidency also is being threatened now, as the Russia investigation keeps picking up steam. After the 15th events will accelerate even more.

Remember however, that this coming week of March 11- 17 will bring energies that are moving inward and yin-ward, downward and for finishing up and processing.

So many personal lives are now up in the air, waiting for coming changes or uncertain what to do or what direction to take.

And certainty will be even more elusive as we get into Mercury Retrograde soon.

So do your best now to be patient and wait. Otherwise you will get anxious and stressed, or depressed.  Sometimes we must wait for clarity and direction to appear, as linear bottom line answers do not easily form.

Yet there is much to be gained in the process of waiting.  Our souls can be very enriched while processing our thoughts and feelings, while meeting up against our hopes and fears, while learning more about ourselves and others.

In the greater world, so much has shifted in the last couple of years or so.    The paradigm the world has known is obviously shifting, even with the difficulties and disappointments we are now experiencing.

We are also being reminded of what is wrong with our world. Why has fame and fortune become the American Dream?  Even in many so-called liberal circles, wealth and notoriety, pedigree and privilege are such a high priority to gain.

Where have the values of our “better angels” gone?  Where has our empathy and compassion gone? How about kindness, integrity, truth, honesty, dignity, respect, and heart centered love?

Why does it seem that money, power, and privilege have become culturally more important than those values?

What kind of world are we delivering to our kids and grandkids?

I heard one young man who survived the Florida school massacre say to Bill Maher on his show:  Paraphrased he passionately said that previous generations have f’d up our world and so this new generation will have to fix it.

And are we setting an example for them? How many have given up their more idealistic  values from their youth because the “real” world has disillusioned and disappointed them, so they decided to play the game instead of keeping the integrity of their better values? And in the process, what has happened to their souls.

For those who have done that, you can work to bring those values back now so we can fight with these kids for a New Paradigm for living with each other and or Earth home.

And following the rules is not the same as holding better values.  Inner values reflect what your mind, heart, and soul know to be true, known to be what brings us together with respect and love.

It is time for each of us to speak up for what we know is right, as has begun to happen with women who are speaking up like never  before, and like how young people are beginning to speak up about guns, etc.

Yet it is time for all of us to stand up and speak our truth.  Keeping quiet is the same as agreeing.  It enables the bad behavior and bad attitudes.

And in your personal life too, you do not need to keep quiet about what is bothering you.  You can stand up and speak your truth.

The condition of your life is your responsibility.  You are not a helpless victim.

The condition of our world is our collective responsibility. We are not victims.

We the people are the ones who will transform the world into the Age of Aquarius.

Don’t concentrate on those who seem to not be redeemable and who will not change.

Focus on attracting those who want to bring the Age of Aquarius values to the real world- as you do.

It is a waste of time trying to convince others to believe.

Be confident in what you believe, and be an example for others to follow. Who you are speaks volumes.

Till next week

Leo

Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo and Astrology Forecast January 28- February 3

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 27, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

So this week we experience the first of two eclipses this Winter Eclipse Season.  It is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo, meaning the Sun is in Aquarius opposite the Moon in Leo.  The Moon will be totally eclipsed by the shadow of the Earth.

And the totality will be seen in western USA but not in the east, which will see a partial eclipse.

Many are making a big deal about it being a blue moon, which means two full moons in the same month.  The blue moon idea is man-made, however, because the calendar we use is man made- not connected to anything of nature.

This is also called a Super Moon, as it is so close to the Earth.

But what is truly important and not part of a manic hype, is the fact that this full moon is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon.

Lunar Eclipses at Full Moons, and all Solar Eclipses are New Moons.  All New Moons have the Sun and Moon conjunct together.  Full Moons all have the Sun exactly opposite the Moon, in this case Sun in Aquarius and Moon in Leo.

A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is a normal Full Moon, but on steroids, so much more intense, powerful, and important.

For a couple days before the event and a couple of days after, its energy and meaning are more important.

This Lunar Eclipse in on Wednesday January 31 at 8:27 AM EST.  With the Sun in Aquarius and Moon in Leo, we have the power of the group (Aquarius) opposed by the power of the one (Leo).

The Women’s March and the confrontation of gymnastic doctor Nasser by 150 girls he sexually abused is part of that theme of the group versus “the one”.

Building a case against Trump, which will likely lead to an impeachment trial in Congress, will continue the theme during this Eclipse Season.

Our world is transforming and getting better, even as we are more and more made aware of what is so wrong in it.  Only that awareness on a deeper soul level can get us ot face what we need to face so we can purge and progress.

Trump is not the end of the world.  He is a catalyst from the Universe to shake things up, release what is toxic, and transform us into the Age of Aquarius.

So stop living in fear and stop focusing on the problem.   Focus on what we can do to transform this world and make it better, in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

The second eclipse is a Solar Eclipse in Aquarius, which will make the power of the group even stronger.

In these mentioned cases the group looks like the good guy and the one looks like the bad guy.  That is not always the case.  When Christ was crucified, for instance, the crowd looked worse than “the one”.

From another angle, Leo is the like fuel, and Aquarius that which receives and delivers the fuel.  The Sun is the ruling planet of Leo and it is the shining fuel which shines the light and warmth to the group of planets and group of living things on those planets that revolve around the Sun.

In the American government system, the executive branch of the President is Leo and the legislative branch with the representatives and senators is Aquarius.

Also Leo is the energetic heart and Aquarius is the mind.  Leo at its best follows its heart or intuition and Aquarius trusts its mind and mental principles.

So finding the balance between heart and mind is important at the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon.

And would you rather follow a strong leader (Leo) or a strong group?  At its worst a Leo leader is a tyrant and at its worst the Aquarius group cannot agree on anything or get anything done.

Feel this week the shifting winds generated by the Lunar Eclipse.  Allow these winds to circulate through your body, heart and soul.   There is new love and truth swirling through those winds.  It is a good time for breakthroughs into new ideas or ways of being.

Anything that is blocking the way of those winds of love and truth to circulate through you will be challenged to break away or break down.

Those old belief systems that keep you stuck may be challenged now.   Lifeless relationships or jobs will need to be transformed or let go.

You are moving through a New Chapter of your life now and you can only do so if you surrender and let go of the parts of the Old Chapter that keep you chained to it.

In the greater world the issues with investigator Mueller and Russia and Trump’s team will grow in intensity. By the end of Winter Eclipse Season we will know more of where it is all headed.

Also the manic stock market is “cruising for a bruising'”  It is almost time for a crash.

Also look what is going to happen as a result of Trump’s declaration of Jerusalem being the sole capital of Israel.  It is only a matter of time when the match will be lit there.

And in South Korea in February, during Eclipse Season, the Winter Olympics happens. The recent peaceful overtures between North and South Korea may hold back the USA plan to take out North Korea’s nuclear program.

Remember that Iraq gave up its weapons of mass destruction, then was invaded.  And we were lied to that Iraq still had those weapons.

And Libya gave up theirs and was invaded.  Do you really believe North Korea will then give up theirs after what they have seen in those countries?

This year brings much transformational change.  And if we each get past the programming from society and families, so we can let in truths we are reluctant to see, and open up to love we have been taught not to trust; then we will have more connections, magic and meaning in our lives.

We will then lead more authentic, satisfying, purposeful lives in greater soul and body health.

We will then get more serious about changing this world, and bringing in the values of our better angels.   We will create a world that is fair, and honoring of what is True and what is of Love.  We will create a world of Diversity Within Unity- The Age of Aquarius.

Keep up the faith and keep your light shining for all around you to bask in its warmth.  If enough of us do that, together we will transform and save this world.

Till next week

Leo

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
