We are now facing the first winds of change from the new Eclipse Season. The first actual eclipse this Eclipse Season is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on January 5, 2019.

Since Eclipse Season began last week at the Sagittarius New Moon, a few important world developments have intensely unfolded:

1)  The stock market is barreling downward rapidly, more significantly than many people understand

2) Mueller’s investigation has revealed information that strongly suggests Donald Trump’s presidency is in a very precarious position now.

3) Paris is experiencing  well attended rallies from its people that have gotten extremely intense in its battles with the police. These rallies were against the proposed increased gas taxes, but even after significant compromise from the government, the rallies have continued.

We can expect these issues to intensify in January, as others will capture much attention as well.  Israel is hot and close to major battles with Hamas and Hezbollah.  Russia is fanning flames of battle with Ukraine. The power of the Feminine is growing more and more every day in contrast to the old world’s paradigm and privileges.

All this shows us more evidence of a USA and Western world in the beginning stages of deep change and transformation on the road to the Age of Aquarius.

We can now see the light of that New Age beginning to shine through the darkness of these aforementioned troubles.

People are beginning to build up the muscles of “power to the people”; an unfair economic system is beginning to crumble to an eventual transformation into something more equitable; corruption of the old world ways is being challenged; and the Diversity Within Unity structure of a new Age of Aquarius world is beginning to show itself.

But I am sure you can see how this process of transformation will temporarily get darker and more intense soon.

That first eclipse on January 5 is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn 15+ degrees.  Pluto and Saturn will both be conjunct that Solar Eclipse.  That strongly suggests this Eclipse represents a big turning point in time concerning structures and institutions, old rules and regulations, responsibilities and outer world material issues.

There is a potentially destructive piece to the energy of this planetary event.  That is so because both Saturn and Pluto conjunct that Solar Eclipse.

In personal lives, there is a need around this Solar Eclipse to question your status quo; to look more closely at the rules you have been answering to; to be more in touch with your ambitions and what you want to accomplish in life.

There is a weighing of whether to keep old ways or instead to purge those old ways from your life and consciousness.

This is merely the beginning of added attention to the issues of Capricorn.  Already both Saturn and Pluto are in Capricorn for an extended stay. Then in 2020 Jupiter joins up with them as they do a threesome of conjunctions with one another.

That year brings us to both Jupiter and Saturn exactly conjunct the USA natal Pluto in its second house.  Pluto will conjunct itself (a Pluto Return) 2021-2025. 

This will be the first Pluto Return for the relatively young country of America.

With Jupiter and Saturn and Pluto all making conjunction with the USA natal Pluto over the next few years, we can expect massive change in the USA power structure of its Military/Industrial Complex.

That means the Economy and Military will be big-time transforming right before our eyes.  And all this synchronizes well with the important Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0+ degrees of Aquarius on the Winter Solstice December 21 date in 2020.

This symbolizes a portal opening into the Age of Aquarius. 

We do not want to view it as people did with Y2K or even more so with the end of the Mayan Calendar (even though amazingly that December 21 day is the same day predicted for 2012 as the ending of the Mayan Calendar).

We do not expect anywhere near a perfectly Aquarian World to magically appear that day.  Nevertheless there will be some obvious Aquarian Age symbols to be seen then, even as we will continue to view more intense struggling in transition between the ages.

It is best to see that time period as a “turning the corner” into the New Age, never to go back (so to speak).

It is no mere coincidence that there will be an important Presidential Election date in November 2020, preceding the Jupiter/Saturn Conjunction in Aquarius in December 2020.

Between now and then there will be many more birth pains and contractions, as we let an old age die as a new one is being born.

There are many similarities now with the stock market crash of 1929 and its subsequent economic Depression, compared to what is brewing now as Trump/Hoover preside in America.

And the similarities between Nixon/Watergate in the 70s,  with Trump/Russiagate now are even more startling.

And overall the similarities between the ’60s/70s revolution and what has been happening over the last few years now is also rather obvious.

Many full circles are playing out and Transformation is alive and well.

Later this week we enter the 2nd quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 7. That second quarter begins on Saturday December 15- in Pisces.

So we continue moving onward and upward toward climax on December 22 at the Full Moon in Cancer just a day after Winter Solstice 2018.

It is a great time now for positive intentions, prayers, and positive visualizations. There is more chance of actualizing what is visualized during a Sagittarius lunar cycle, especially this year with Jupiter also in Sagittarius.

Co-creation with the Universe may be especially productive now.

Mercury moves into Sagittarius this Wednesday the 12th, adding an even more conducive energy for positive visualization and affirmation.

Remember however that alignment with the Universe is essential when using positive visualization, as the relationship between you and the Universe is what creates the magic.

There is one more significant planetary movement this week.

At the beginning of the week, on Sunday December 9, Chiron shifts from Retrograde to Direct- at 28 degrees of Pisces.  

Chiron is a bridge between realities.  As such it is a significant bridge between the divine and human- between Higher Self and Ego Self.

It sits in the heavens between Saturn and Uranus, between the more traditional gods closest to Earth, and those of the more distant heavens, who were not known about until after 1781.

Saturn is representative of an Old Testament God of punishment for transgressions of not abiding by the rules (like the 10 commandments).

Uranus is representative of an awakening and liberation from the chains of old conditioning.

In between Saturn and Uranus is where Chiron always resides in the heavens.

In 1977 when it was discovered, Close Encounters of a 3rd kind and Star Wars were both showing for the first time in theaters.

The heavens were closer than ever before in our collective human consciousness.

Now as Chiron goes back Direct and soon into new day Aries, our “planet” of building bridges connects our ego self to the divine realms.

What better time to make positive visualizations that are in co-creation with the Universe?

Till next week,

Leo

Chaos and Order and Astrology Forecast November 22- 28

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 21, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Since the New Moon in Scorpio on November 11, there have been a lot of violent events that have occurred:  A brutal attack on Paris and another brutal attack in Beirut Lebanon.  Both of these attacks have been identified as being perpetrated by the Islamic State or ISIS.  Another horrible attack happened at an international hotel in Mali, Africa.. This one may have been done by Islamic State but that is not known yet.  And in Israel violence has continued and even grown since the New Moon in Scorpio.

These events are all outgrowths from the Eclipse Season this last September and alert us all to the grave need for vast transformational change in our world.

It is easy to attribute all this violence to Radical Islam, and then believe that if we can eradicate ISIS and other groups of Islamic terrorism that the problem will be solved and all will then be fine.

And though we certainly need to  solve this problem and work to end the onslaught of brutal attacks perpetrated by Islamic State, Al Queda and other such groups; more importantly we need to change some paradigms we have given allegiance to for thousands of years.

These old paradigms give fuel to the fires of “might makes right”,  survival of the fittest, greedy desires to take as much as one can,  and just generally a philosphy of every man for himself in competition with others for power, money, and privilege.

These paradigms have brought us world wars, colonization, invading of countries that have not attacked you first, extremely uneven distribution of wealth, weapons of mass destruction, and just generally a violent society that creates separation between peoples and a lack of empathy for those we see as different from us.

The transformation we are moving through can feel and look awfully bleak in a global sense, I know.  But we have to go through this dark tunnel in the transformational process before we can experience the Aquarian Age light at the end of that tunnnel.

And of course even as these horrible events are happening many of us are also experiencing spiritual awakenings, transformed health habits, magical experiences of synchronicity, desires to help heal our human family and Earth, a greater honoring of our authentic selves, a turning more and more to our higher self instead of our ego, more empathy and compassion, more personal empowerment, shedding skins of programming from society and family, and healthier relationships.

So remember the bigger picture of changing ages and moving into a world of Diverity within Unity.  Nothing will stop that movement except our human negative instinct for self destruction because of a “dog eat dog” mentality.

Just saw on the news last night how someone slaughtered two innocent cows in someone’s pasture.   Was that because of the Islamic State?  Or was it because we live in a violent society? Movies, video games, etc. show us such depraved butchery, blood guts and all.  This did not exist 50 years ago.

We need this transformation into an Age of Aquarius. And what each of us can do is to work on our own consciousness and lives, and help those who we come in contact with who also wish to transform themselves and our world into a more evolved one.

This coming week shows us three planetary highlights: Sun goes into Sagittarius; Full Moon in Gemini; and Saturn square Neptune.

Saturn square Neptune is exact this Thursday November 26, but its effect on our world is many months before and after.

Saturn is limits, rules, and boundaries.  Neptune is openness and flow with no boundaries.

If you look at what is happening in our global scene, this is playing out in a big way.  Look at the refugee issue. There are many peoples leaving their homes and state for a new home. Mostly European countries are debating whether to put up strong boundaries against their entry or whether to let them in.

On the USA southern border the issue of immigration and illegals is getting more and more intense.

And Islamic State has wiped out old state boundaries of Iraq and Syria, and is crossing boundaries for attacks in other countries.

In 1988-1990 the Saturn conjunct Neptune aspect started the current Saturn/Neptune cycle.

At that time the Soviet Union was breaking up and countries were becoming sovereign entities outside the control of Russia.

This of course greatly affected our world and most especially the USA.

In your personal life this issue of rules and boundaries versus more permissiveness can play out in many ways. One that comes to mind is how we raise our children.  Seems like the balance between permissiveness and more strict rules has been shifting or needs to shift.

There has been a much greater permissiveness over the last 40 years or so.  Is there a need to get back to more firm rules and guidelines? Or not?

And also Saturn represents security and groundedness. Neptune is nore chaotic by nature in its watery flow over and around all boundaries.

So watch how the world and our personal lives try to balance allowing for change which can bring more feelings of confusion and chaos on the one hand- with more security and safety on the other hand.

As there is more change, rebellion and attending chaos, police and military can get more oppressive in trying to keep order. Witness the race issues this past year or two.

Also this week the Sun moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius on Sunday November 22.  So energetically we move from primal intensity and passion to desires for upliftment, inspiration, joy, and adventure.

And on Wednesday November 25 at 5:44 PM EST there is Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini.  This Full Moon should be very lively with desires for communication and relating.  Gemini brings in facts and information and delivers to others those facts and information. Sagittarius seeks to take this information and make meaning, find solution and understanding to it all.

This will carry into the next day, which is Thanksgiving Day here in the USA.  It should be a very lively, talkative atmosphere to be in that day.

Till next week,

Leo

Finding Inner Peace During Difficult Times and Astrology Forecast November 15-21.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 14, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We had been letting you know that the New Moon in Scorpio last week was going to bring us powerful world events. We wrote that those events would be extensions of the shifts that happened during the Eclipse Season a couple of months ago.

In fact we wrote last week that the Scorpio New Moon could very well open up the “Gates of Hell” through world events.

And it sure seems like it did open those gates with the horrific attacks in France.

Please reread the column last week again, as we then talked at length about how to not be drawn into hellish emotions and instead to find a spiritual place inside yourself.

It would be so easy now to react with rage and to want to go to war with the Islamic State.  That is where most leaders of the western world are going to right now.

And it is easy to understand why.  When one is attacked there is a primal instinct that is triggered. That instinct is to destroy those who have attacked you. That is how wars get started.  Being frightened and running away is the other knee jerk reaction to being attacked.  Our instincts are to fight or give flight.

People like Martin Luther King and Ghandi and others have taught us how to act differently, how to be empowered but not violently confrontational.

We collectively are in the process of learning how to evolve into those ways of being.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, known as the “guardian of the underworld”.  That underworld in part is about our unconscious primal instincts.

Only by being more conscious can we transform that primal instinct.

Ghandi created a mass civil disobedience of the British Empire, which had conquered and then oppressed India.  Britain eventually left India in large part because of the civil disobedience.  Ghandi’s rebellion actually happened in the year that Pluto was discovered- 1930-  “As Above So Below”. He was teaching us how to be empowered without needing to kill and dominate.

Now I am not so naive to believe that civil disobedience will stop the brutal Islamic State.  But I do know that there are ways to evolve beyond the consciousness of the Old Testament’s “An Eye for an Eye and a Tooth for a Tooth”.  We should have learned by now that that attitude makes everyone blind and toothless.

Each of us needs to find a place inside that is peaceful yet empowered. That is what will evolve our human family to one that eventually becomes “Diversity within Unity”.  We each can only be fully responsible for our own evolution,however, not everyone else.  So each of us must find ways to change our consciousness aligned with the New Age.  And then have faith that all will eventually work out right.

For now be aware that more powerful global events are on the way.

To help us to deal with these events, this coming week brings some adjustments to the energies of the Scorpio New Moon lunar cycle: Neptune changes directions from Retrograde to Direct on Wednesday; and next weekend the Sun moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius.

In what ways has this Scorpio New Moon brought more intensity into your life?   Do you feel more empowered or passionate? Have your “buttons” been pushed by others to make you want to emotionally react to them with anger? Are you going deeper inside to find new insights?  Have secrets come out into the open?

The Neptune shift on Wednesday should bring softer energies to work with.   Neptune seeks to help us to be more vulnerable and to let go and go more with the flow. It often brings with it the magic of synchronicity as well as symbols and signs from the Universe.

So use this Neptune shift to shift your consciousness to a place of trust and openness to the Universe and to your own Higher Self.

Next weekend when the Sun moves into Sagittarius, the potential for more inspiration will come with it.  Sagittarius is a sign that is “ruled” by Jupiter.  Unlike Pluto the Guardian of the Underworld, Jupiter is a “sky” god, one who rules higher meaning, higher learning, taking the high road, and inspiration.

Sagittarius is intuitive more that intellectual, sees the bigger picture much better than it sees the details; in other words is better at seeing the forest than the trees.

Sagittarius also is a seeker. It seeks spiritual knowlege; it seeks out answers and understanding; it seeks to find the meaning in everything; and it seeks adventure.

It has a tendency to “leap before it looks” however.  It trusts its intuition, sometimes to a fault, and its fiery free spirited disposition can get it be impulsive sometimes.

But it is nevertheless very resilient, in large part because faith is another of its priorities for living its life. It seeks to find and create light in the darkness.

So you will be given some energetic tools from the Universe this week to help you to better deal with the difficulties that have come since the September Eclipses and the Scorpio New Moon last week.

Not long after the eclipses we were brought to a somewhat peaceful plateau with Virgo and Libra energies leading the way, but obviously since the Scorpio New Moon the energy field around us and in us has greatly intensified and is taking us through a powerful transformational period.

Even the stock market, which started to move up again after the big slide downward during Eclipse Season, last week went quite down again.

Make no mistake, we are transforming out of the old world and in transition into the Age of Aquarius.

But part of that process does not feel very good, and has us releasing toxic energies and self defeating old patterns of thought and behavior.

As we release the old, we open ourselves to new truth and love energies that will set us free from the chains of the past.

Keep purging even as you are moving forward into this New Chapter of your life. Every day and in every way you are transforming into a more authentic self and life.   You are releasing your old programmed attitudes and belief systems, and in the process are being awakened to the Truth of Who you are really are, and to what your purpose is for being here on the Earth at this time.

And you are being awakened also to the truth of the world you live in, one that is also in the process of deep transformation. The labor pains can be very ugly and painful before the brith of the Age of Aquarius.  And it will come.

Till next week,

Leo

Mutual Respect and Astrology Forecast January 11-17

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 10, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week’s tragedy in Paris happened in the wake of a powerful Full Moon in Cancer that formed a T-Square with transformational planets Uranus and Pluto.

Now I believe the intensity level will subside for awhile, at least until around the New Moon in Aquarius on January 20- followed by Mercury Retrograde on January 21.

But then in March when Uranus exactly squares Pluto again- for the last time after 6 previous exact squares- a powerhouse of planetary aspects will begin.

The world as we know it is in the process of monumental transformation into a New Age of Aquarius.

So much needs to shift so we may eventually live in a world of more equality and fairness, one where Diversity within Unity is the standard of the world.  Love and Truth, the pillars that hold up the Universe, will need to be the pillars that hold up our human culture on Earth too.

Abusive power; greed; cover-ups and lies; corruption; and violence will need to be cleansed from our human consciousness in order for the New Age to be birthed and to flourish.

Right now there is a growing conflict between the values and traditions of the Western World and a rising tide of Fundamentalist Islam.

The western values of freedom and freedom of speech have been violently challenged this past week in Paris.

I as a western living American place a very high value on freedom and freedom of speech.  And I also believe the killing of those cartoonists and others of Charlie Hebdo is horribly wrong and there is no excuse for it.

But I also believe that with freedom comes responsibility and sensitivity toward others’ sacred beliefs.

As a spiritual person, I am not fan of most organized religion of any brand; but at the same time I respect that others do have strong religious beliefs.  In a world of Diversity within Unity it is imperative that we respect others’ ways of life as long as the Golden Rule is used.

That means that as long as someone else’s beliefs or way of life does not directly hurt anyone else it is OK.

Is it being responsible and sensitive to demean and humiliate a God some cherish and love?  Did you see the cartoons that Charlie Hebdo made of Mohammed?  They humiliated him and also showed no sensitivity to the fact that Muslims believe that Mohammed’s image should not be shown or drawn, etc.

I also believe that humor needs to be free to be irreverent, to poke fun, to show the Emperor with no clothes. Being spiritually or politically correct holds back the truth that humor gives us.

But those cartoons of Mohammed were filled with hate and sought to humiliate.  Mean spiritedness is not the same as pointed sarcasm.

I know many of you are thinking “yea but who is to draw the line and how does one draw the line?”

If it is about what another culture finds sacred,  as sacred as Islam finds Mohammed, then we should respect that.

Are Christians OK with Jesus being shown as depraved or perverted and him being humiliated?

Well perhaps here in America where freedom of speech is also a sacred value, perhaps one can get away with it?   But if the other culture does not have that same cherishing of freedom of speech, is it not responsible and sensitive of us to put limits on our expression, especially if those expressions are filled with venom?

Again let me reiterate there that there is no excuse for the killings. Those people did not deserve to die for those cartoons.

But if we are going to build a New World, one where we respect the differences in a world of Diversity within Unity; then all people will need to respect the cherished values of other cultures.

To get to that New World, all cultures and peoples will need to leave behind the idea that their way of living is superior and that all others should believe and live the same way!

So now you can see the work to be done, and there may be more and more ugly situations that erupt until we start waking up to what is needed.

If you start hating Muslims and their way of life and judging them, it will be no different than the judging of blacks or gays or hispanics, or transgenders, etc.

Please do not buy into what is developing, now in both Conservative and Liberal cultures (see Bill Maher).   If we from all sides further demonize Muslim culture we are contributing to what is brewing so strongly now:  world war.

So this coming week brings us a 4th quarter Moon in Libra Tuesday the 13th.  After that the waning moon brings more downward movement to our consciousness.  Low key is the watch phrase, and as Mars goes into Pisces on Monday January 12, that reality gets stronger.

Mars will stay in Pisces until February 19, so forceful and straight-forward activity turns to a more circuitous process. Mars in Pisces brings yang Mars into yin Pisces.

It is time to let the flow of life, as it unfolds, determine what you will do. Overly aggressive movements may find much frustration in fulfilling an agenda or reaching a goal now.

The 14th/15th may add to that theme as Mars squares stop sign Saturn.  Be patient and all will turn out better.

All in all this is a good week ahead to process one’s thoughts and feelings, to heal, to work things out.  But it is not a great time to rush forward, to take on big projects, to have important new beginnings. Be careful not to let yourself get too negative or depressed.

See you next week,

Leo
