Another Turning Point and Astrology Forecast September 24-30

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we moved through the end of Eclipse Season, we experienced more natural disasters, more culture battles, and a continuation of ugly violence over North Korea having nuclear weapons.

No one should have weapons of mass destruction of any kind, including nuclear bombs. No one!

The USA and others pushing a sovereign country to stop doing what they have already been doing for many years is starkly hypocritical.  And the USA killed over 300,000 humans, mostly civilian, when they dropped 2 nuclear bombs on Japan in August 1945.

And diplomacy could be found if the Trump administration followed the Russia/China proposal to stop their war games with South Korea while at the same time North Korea puts a stop to their nuclear testing.

USA Trump administration turned that proposal down.  They believe North Korea should stop their testing and destroy their nuclear weapons’ program while the USA offers nothing in return.

This is a really important turning point in world affairs and in our collective evolution into the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius.

All must be equal in value, and accept others in their diverse differences, while seeking Unity within that Diversity.  No more superior and inferior paradigm   Win/Win results in all disagreements.  No more predator and prey.  No more perpetrator and victim consciousness.

The USA must be the last superpower and empire on this planet.  The USA is needing to come down into equality with the rest of the world. The United Nations needs to bring equality to its body of nations.

As the USA accepts its karmic lessons and place in the world, we will have a more graceful voyage into the Age of Aquarius.

When we experienced the Cardinal Grand Cross in 2014, we were beginning in the USA a transformation of our consciousness and values, as that Grand Cross was almost exactly on our Sun in Cancer from our natal chart of July 4 1776.

Uranus square Pluto was part of that Grand Cross, and of course Uranus square Pluto is the first major meeting of those two planets since their conjunction in 1965/66 which initiated the ’60s revolution.

Racial injustices have been coming back, white supremacy has been coming back, and also national chauvinism has been rearing its ugly head busting apart intentions for equality between nations and cultures. Religious fundamentalism which precludes efforts at equality and diversity has turned up in terrorism and in general attitudes of superior/inferior.

And now after the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo, we are given the opportunity to transform and return to the best of what the United States stood for at its birth:  All people are created equal with certain inalienable rights like life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and self determination.  But this must be for all the world, all peoples and nations, not just Americans.

And remember that the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo and its movement across the USA was also opposite the natal USA placement of Moon in Aquarius, which represents those aforementioned values.

The Leo Eclipse triggered Trump’s Ascendant and Mars in his natal chart, showing us a most diseased Leo expression of narcissism, self centeredness, sense of superiority, and dominance over the rights of others. This opposes the USA core values of Moon in Aquarius.

This is our time of standing up for what is right and for what the best of our country represents.  We may have to start another revolution against the current representation of King George from England from revolutionary times: King Trump.

And this week,  we have entered the other side of Autumn Equinox, moving downward in light minutes of the day,  increasing dark yin minutes of the day until the Winter Solstice, when the tide begins to turn back toward light and yang energies.

This week also represents a turning point in other ways as Pluto changes directions from Retrograde to Direct, and Jupiter opposes Uranus.  All this happens close to the same date on September 27/28.

We will be thrust outside any boxes or ruts in our lives, and pushed much more strongly into transformational energies.

Jupiter/Uranus is wake up call of liberation from old ways. It also brings up the opposition of Libra peace and making relationship (Jupiter in Libra) versus having conflict, independence and self satisfaction (Uranus in Aries).

That will play out most likely in relationships of your life.  Will you stand stronger in your independence and empowerment, or do you need to be more sensitive to the needs of others? Of course at best you can find a balance between those two opposites: standing for your needs, while at the same time listening for what someone else needs too.

In the world the North Korea/USA drama will either turn toward peace soon, or else make final commitment toward battle.

At around the same time as Jupiter opposite Uranus, powerful Pluto changes directions and permeates our energy field.  So issues, especially relationship issues, will become more real and will reach down into the core of truth.

As Pluto goes down into the underworld of our psyches, we potentially face the death of old ways, as new ways burn brighter in our consciousness.

In the world, culture and race issues may become stronger still,  natural disasters especially earthquakes are more apt to erupt again,  the North Korea issue could get even more intense, and Middle East/Syria is more likely in the spotlight of our awareness.

This is a powerful time of transformation, and you will have the opportunity to release more of what does not serve you while finding the magic of the new yellow brick roads in your life.

The Jupiter opposition to Uranus is almost exactly square to the USA natal Pluto in its second house.   This is the part of the USA that represents its Military/Industrial Complex, so coined by President Eisenhower.  He warned that it would usurp our democracy and power of the people.

So you can expect energies that seek to break down that power, as well as energies to make it more powerful. Eventually it will transform the power of that complex into a new kind of empowerment, one that represents the people.

This is only the beginning of that natal USA Pluto being aspected.  In 2020/21 Saturn will conjunct that Pluto, and in 2021-2023 Pluto will have it very first Pluto Return in the USA natal chart- 245 years after the birth of the USA.

So these next several years will bring enormous transformation of USA power and the power of its government, military, and financial institutions.

And of course the entry into the opening of a major portal into the Age of Aquarius also happens in the early 2020s.

We the people can not go to sleep.  We must, with great passion, bring about an even bigger revolution than what happened in the ’60s.

We must go much further with that work, and bring down the new Nixon administration, which is our current Trump presidential administration.

He is in our lives to remind us that the transformation of this country must be fulfilled, so we can be an equal member of the community of nations and cultures, one of many with rights of self determination, and of freedom and happiness.

Diversity within Unity will become reality. Truth and Love will be both Above in the heavens of the Universe as always, and synchronistically Below in the core values of our Earth community.

Till next week,

Leo

Renewed Clarity Moving Forward and Astrology Forecast September 25- October 7

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Mercury is Direct again as we settle down into the beginning of Autumn 2016.   Be present now for how your thinking and feelings have been shifting.

The fog is lifting.  As it lifts, the Libra frequencies of Autumn bring consciousness to greater awareness of others, more empathy and sensitivity to what others are experiencing.

No matter how much we may try to deny it, relationships have such a great influence on how we feel about ourselves and life.

We may try to shut others out, but unless we live alone and never go outside our home, we will encounter and be influenced by others.

Too bad early education does not have classes on how to be in relationships, or how to be a parent, or how to be in a healthy marriage, etc.

We have developed so much on the material plane, travelled to the Moon, created amazing technology, created flying machines, cures for deadly diseases, and mass communication.

But we do not really know how to get along with one another, how to respect others’ lifestyles and religions and cultures and sexual orientations.

In America now there is a very angry culture war going on that is represented by the Presidential election.

Trump supporters are passionate about the more conservative values he represents for  them, and they demonize Clinton and her supporters.   Clinton supporters are passionate about the more liberal values she represents for them and they demonize Trump and his supporters. There is little attempt on either side to truly empathize with the other side.

“We are different yet we respect each other’s view” is rarely heard these days..

On one level there is a splitting that is happening at a very core level .  But at the same time there is a stong force of Unification growing in each one of us.

We are in the bigger picture- long term- moving toward knowing we are all different, a truly diverse human family, but all One.

And you cannot truly believe in diversity, BTW, if you do not see conservative southerners  as part of that diversity- or you cannot see Muslims or North Koreans as part of that diversity, for instance.

Look at the sky and see the perfectly round Moon and Sun.   Pick up a Yin/Yang symbol and see dark and light joined in circular oneness.  See an astrological circular mandala and view all the signs, planets, and houses joined together as one.

How and why have we split apart so drastically? Our split is why we have those so rich and those so desperately poor; why we have perpetrators and victims; why we demonize those we do not agree with.

I believe in the greater world we are now in for an even greater splitting apart before we can come together as one in an Age of Aquarius.

It is almost impossible to talk rationally with many people now about the Election.  There is so much hatred coming from so many people.

It is best for those who want to be a part of the new world to get outside the box of the duality in more ways than one.

If you want to have new world consciousness you are wanting to see life as like a Yin/Yang symbol, dark and light, male and female, yin and yang different but together in Oneness.

You cannot change what is coming to us except to get your consciousness vibrating at the frequency of Diversity in Unity, with love and truth at the core of your soul.

This week, as we begin our Autumn journey, with Mercury Direct and the Eclipses in our rear view mirrors, we will experience Pluto changing directions and a New Moon in Libra.

On Monday September 26, Pluto the ruler of Scorpio and the mythical Guardian of the Underworld will go from Retrograde to Direct.

Pluto is a transformational planet that is quite intense and potentially explosive.  As it moves from Retrograde to Direct, its intense energy permeates our collective and individual souls.

It is meaningful that the first Presidential debate is happening as Pluto goes direct.

Expect a most powerful debate, one that will somehow transform the conflict between Clinton and Trump and the people who follow them.

In your personal life you may well experience an increase of passion and intensity in the days surrounding Pluto’s shift.

You may also have arguments or inner conflicts that bring you a transformation of a relationship or of your own beliefs or consciousness.

Other powerful world events may be showing themselves in the days surrounding Pluto’s shift.

On Friday September 30 there will be a New Moon in Libra at 8:11 PM. Jupiter will be conjunct the New Moon while Mars and Pluto square it in Capricorn.

There will be a lot of energy in this lunation, one that will involve relationship in one form or another.

Libra, being relationship oriented, seeks the bringing of people together to relate with one another.  Jupiter conjunct this New Moon serves to inspire such a connection.  But Mars and Pluto in Capricorn may put a damper on such a union with doses of practical reality

This New Moon in Libra also brings more beauty to our lives, like the soon to fall leaves of multi colors.

Be aware now of what is fair and just and what constitutes a win/win for both parties.  Libra wants grace and peace, harmony and ease.

Some conflicts in the world now will seek peaceful resolution.    It may signify a temporary break in the conflict or perhaps even a more permanent settlement.

This New Moon in Libra moves us forward out of Eclipse Season.

I will miss the Forecast for next Saturday the 1st of October, but will resume again on Saturday October 8. I will be visiting the Southwest in Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado.

The week I will be absent is a mild week astrologially.

However from Wednesday the 5th through Friday the 7th there are some minor planetary rumblings.

Mars will square both Jupiter and Pluto while Venus sextiles Pluto.  These aspects should amp up the energy field and tempt people to be more impulsive.

Counteracting that impulsiveness and volatility is Mercury leaving Virgo to enter Libra for around a month. This transition happens on Friday October 7

Mercury in Libra is mentally very balanced and peaceful and a mediator and diplomat in disagreements.

Till we meet again on October 8.

Leo

Blood Moon and Astrology Forecast September 27- October 3.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 26, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I begin to write this forecast on the eve of Pluto going Direct and only a few days before the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries;  it feels as if there is a time bomb waiting to go off.

On the surface all is well, especially here in Southern France.   It is breathtakingly beautiful here in the land where the Cathars were massacred by the Catholic church and French government in the 13th century.

While many passively accepted the authority of the government and church, those who were considered heretics, like the Cathars, were feared by the powers that had so much control of people’s lives.

The Cathars had many beliefs similar to the Catholic Church, but they believed spirituality could be achieved without help from the church, and they had as many women “priests” as men.

Love was what was considered most Godly, and they led very simple lives. believing in the consciousness of Christ for all to embody.

They were completely wiped out, a genocide, and most all the records of their life and faith were destroyed.

Mary Magdalene is also a very strong presence here, with churches and monuments honoring her and her spiritual mastery.

There are many who believe she was married to Jesus and that they had children.  There is also the belief that there is a bloodline that was developed from there, that may still live.

There is so much we do not know of the truth of our human journey and its origins.  Church, government, military, secret service,  and now Corporate interests conspire to program the herd in order to keep the world as it is, under their control- thus keeping their power, privilege and wealth.

But nature and the Universe are the ultimate power of this world, though the illusion shows up differently.

Now as we move through a transition from the Pisces to the Aquarian Age, the power of transformation is gaining in speed and strength and more and more Truths will come to the surface.

The 18+ months from the Cardinal Grand Cross in April 2014 to the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon on September 27 2015 have opened up a Grand Portal of new consciousness of Truth and Love.

We have been very intensely processing our ghosts and demons from the past, releasing these blocks to our receiving the new energies.

Now after this Total Lunar Eclipse, we re ready to embrace more fully our journey forward into new personal and collective global lives.

Pluto this week has been opening us to face our demons and release them as best we can. Suppressed and hidden elements  from our personal and collective unconscious are streaming through so we can be as present as possible for our real lives.

Here in southern France we went into caves where “heretics” hid from the authorities; we took a boat ride down an underground river; we explored even deeper caves where cro-magnon man wrote and drew on walls thousands and thousands of years ago.

This trip inside the body of Mother Earth coordinated well with Pluto’s current underworld penetration.

We often see our spiritual journey as one connected to the heavens up above. But it is also a spiritual journey deep into the Earth, where we reconnect with our Earthly heritage, our natural instincts and passions, and our deepest joining together in soulful community with all souls and all creatures.

Now as our stock market and economy begin their downward journey, we also begin our collective journey to knowing we are all in  the same family with the same concerns and suffering.

The turn at the Autumn Equinox is toward more dark and yin energies as always; Pluto brings us into the realms of our deepest soulful feelings; and the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon reminds us that life is powerful and unpredictable force of transformation now.

The unpredictable mystery of the Great Feminine is picking up strength now as we move through the Full Moon Eclipse this week, and it will help open up more the Grand Portal which will bring us powerful world events that continue to show us the way forward into a New World and Paradigm.

The Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries is on Sunday the 27th at 10:51 PM EDT.

Sun in Libra and Moon in Aries for this Eclipse bring us Questions:  of conflict or peace?; Mine or Ours; Stand Up or Be Passive; Push Forward or Take it Easy; Fight or Make Peace will be themes of the Eclipse.

Being True to oneself is most important at this eclipse but that needs to be balanced with a need to listen to others and make relationship as important as being true to Self.   Neither side should be “compromised”.  Instead a win/win  must be found  for this Full Moon Eclipse to truly be honored.

In the global arena, watch for events to unfold in the Middle East, especially with Israel, as the 4 Blood Moons in a row have all been on Jewish holidays.

Some have predicted a messiah is coming as a result, while others are talking of doomsday.

I am pretty sure I will be writing to you next week, and another doomsday scenario will be doomed.

Nevertheless, this passage must be taken seriously, as it is an important turning point and crossroads in human affairs on Earth.

Most importantly on a personal level, is how your consciousness will be on the other side of this 18 month transition we have been going through.

Will you have allegiance to the old paradigm and its fear based programming or will you still believe you live in a meaningful world with Love and Truth leading the way.

Do you still believe we can attain a Diversity in Unity world, aligned with the frequencies of an Age of Aquarius.

A further breakdown of the old economy and increasing world conflict will be the illusions that one must avoid taking to heart.

By illusion I do not mean that these difficult events will not be real.  What I do mean is that they and the powers of the old paradigm do not govern the Universe and your soul.  You do not need to allow fear and panic  to take over.

Yes we may feel fear with events, but we can balance that with our pure connections to heart and source.

These world events, and the fear they engender cannot take your soul without your approval.

You are in charge of the quality of your soul and spirit and mind and the beliefs and attitudes you buy into.   Often we cannot control the events that come into our lives, but we can control how we react to those events.

The Cathars, as they made their final retreat to Montsegur where thy were slaughtered,  chose to die instead of give oath to government and church.

If they can do that, each of us can have faith too in God/Goddess/Universe/Soul/Spirit/Freedom.

In an Aquarian Age, we do not have to choose between material world and spiritual world.  We can honor both, but we must take the veil of programming off our eyes so we can see the light.

The next two weeks after the Total Lunar Eclipse Blood Moon will be mainly for processing what has been happening in our emotions, souls, minds and lives

And Mercury will still be Retrograde until Friday October 9, when it goes back Direct.

Then on October 12, the New Moon in Libra will signal an end to Eclipse Season and a slow movement forward into a new chapter in our personal and collective lives.

We will have taken another huge step forward toward the Age of Aquarius, which will be waiting for us to arrive after December 2020.

Till next week,

Leo

Stepping up the Tempo and Astrology Forecast September 20-27.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week we moved through our first eclipse of this Eclipse Season, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo. And then a few days afterward we experienced the beginning of a new Mercury Retrograde period.

A huge 8.3 Earthquake in Chile happened during that week. I would not be surprised if more were on the way soon considering the deep power of this Eclipse Season.

We are in new energy zones now and this week the intensity increases with a second quarter Moon in Sagittarius; Autumn Equinox; and Pluto going Direct just a few days before the important Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries early next week.

The second quarter of the Solar Eclipse New Moon’s lunar cycle begins on Monday September 21, with the Moon in Sagittarius.

A second quarter moon usually picks up the pace in the lunar cycle,  as we move inexorably forward toward the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries on Sunday September 27.

Before that Lunar Eclipse, there is an important annual turning point event,  the Autumn Equinox on Wednesday September 23 at 4:21 AM EDT.

Autumn Equinox always begins as the Sun moves into Libra.  Those Libran scales are evenly balanced between dark and light minutes of the day on Autumn Equinox; but right afterwards the dark minutes begin to increase.  They will continue to increase until Winter Solstice when darkness will be at its zenith.

You can metaphorically view the Autumn Equinox like a sunset time of year, as Spring Equinox is like a Sun rising time of year.

As the darkness begins to set in at Autumn Equinox, our hearts and souls begin to soften and open up to relationship and artistic beauty.  These are Libra traits that are evident during the beginning month of Autumn.

As we begin to move more yin-ward with the increasing dark minutes of the day, we feel a pull to be more attentive to social values instead of more self assertive values.

Self assertive pursuits are more organic in the first month of spring when Aries is the ruling sign.

So now we begin to lean into cooler and darker days, but ever so slowly, as we take our time as we experience the loveliness of early Autumn.

In contrast, overnight September 24/25, darkly intense Pluto goes from Retrograde to Direct.  As it changes directions, its power of transformation enters our collective energy field.

The intensity level will increase as we feel our passion increasing. Sometimes that means we are more apt to get into arguments with others, and if so be careful not to say things you might regret later.

Other times, however, Pluto can help us to express what we have been suppressing, so we can then work out issues that have blocking out our authentic “voice”.  At the same time there may be a catharsis in the interaction and a clearing the air.

Afterwards there is a feeling of renewal, like after an orgasm.  Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio and so passions of all sorts including sexual are normal at such times of Pluto changing directions.

And this increase of intensity is a bridge into the power of the Total Lunar Eclipse new Moon in Aries.

That Total Lunar Eclipse is the 4th Lunar Eclipse in a row that is total eclipse, also called a Blood Moon.

And every one of these Blood Moons has occurred on a Jewish holiday, showing us the potentiality of a sign pointing to important world events involving Israel now.

The fight right now over the Jewish Temple Mount, which is the Muslim Al Aqsa, has been getting heavier and is a potential place for great conflict, as this area has been considered holy by Christians, Muslims and Jews.

Also as we move through the shifts this week and next, look closely at the stock markets and global economy. They are on the verge of great transformation, and signs of great changes that are on the way are being shown now.

Out world is in the process of great change, as our old paradigm for living is changing more and more every day.  Old borders between countries, and power balances are changing more and more every day.

This is a great time, as everything is shifting, to open up to the gateway and portal into our new world.

As you clear out blocks and let go of old dysfunctional patterns and toxic energies, you are opening up more to Source and Universe.  From there you will receive more synchronicities and meaningful symbols showing you the way.   This portal has great doses of Truth helping you to be more awake.

This gateway also has more love and meaning pouring through, changing the tone and glow of everyone and everything in your life.

We are being taken out of our old comfort zones during this Eclipse Season, which may not have been truly that comfortable for you.

As you are being taken off your usual balance, that brings in both difficult and enjoyable elements into your consciousness and life.

You will naturally experience breakdowns of that which is not right for you anymore and breakthroughs into new realms of experience.

Do not hold on too tightly to that which is ready to go.  Stop your self from being too attached and all will happen more gracefully.

It is true that change can be stressful, whether considered positive or negative,so do your best to keep centered and seeing all as happening for a reason.

Remember that Mercury is Retrograde now too, so do not try too hard to figure it all out intellectually or analytically.  Let the process unfold now instead of needing answers now.

Allow your reflective, imaginative, and intuitive mind and heart to be of more influence now.

And realize that also there may be some rewinding into the past too now, so you can reintegrate people, ideas, old parts of self back into your consciousness.

And please with all the shifting and changing and Mercury Retrograde, be careful not to jump to any conclusions or make hasty decisions.

The Eclipse Intensity will slowly subside after the Total Eclipse and Mercury will stay retrograde until October 9.

This Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on Sunday September 27 will be at 10:51 PM EDT.  It will have the Sun in Libra and the Moon in Aries.

This will push us into finding a proper balance between peace and conflict; between being true to self or true to someone else or a relationship; taking action or letting things go; and being assertive or being accommodating.

In the greater world “war or peace” will be a likely major theme to be worked out.

I am posting this while in Southern France.  We are there on a pilgrimage to the places Mary Magdalene was said to have walked, and to experience the energies of the Cathars, who were wiped out in genocide in the 13th century during the Inquisition.

I hope to post short updates on September 26 and October 3 while still in France. I will be back to USA on October 5.

Till next week,

Leo

Also I have a new YouTube video for the eclipses for you to see.

Bursting Forward into the Future and Astrology Forecast September 28- October 11.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 27, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We let you know last week that the Autumn Equinox this year, with Pluto changing directions, would be more intense than usual and would likely include powerful world events.

So the USA began a bombing campaign in Syria that day against the Islamic State.   Pluto going Direct on the Equinox is part of the planetary signature for Autumn 2014, and promises a most important and intense autumn ahead.

There will be a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on October 8.   And since transformational Uranus and Pluto will join that Full Moon Eclipse to make a Cardinal T-Square, we can expect a very strong time period ahead.

I am in Italy now writing this Forecast, and next week I will likely be out of internet reach for my usual Saturday blog entry on October 4.  I will be in Italy still on October 11, and at that time I will likely be able to write my forecast for that week ahead.

Then on October 18, just before the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on  October 23,  I will be back in New England and putting out my regular blog entry from back home again.

So this entry is for the next two weeks, from September 28- October 12.

I assume much will be shaking up during that time, especially after October 4.  On October 4 Mercury will change directions from Direct to Retrograde at 1:02 PM EDT.  It will not go back Direct until October 25. Pluto and Uranus will also be triggered that day, so more intense energies will be opening up around that time.  Mercury will be Retrograde during both eclipses as the second eclipse is on October 23. It will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio.

Four days after Mercury goes Retrograde on October 4, there is the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on October 8.  It is at 6:51 AM EDT.

So as usual Mercury Retrograde will bring a shift in energies of mind and communication.  Perceptions change, sometimes very subtly at first, but once it has been going on for a awhile you know things seem “off” or different.  Best not to try to “figure it out” too much.  It is better to trust the unfoldment of a situation rather than to over analyze. Remember that the left brain is not moving in its normal way, but more creative, intuitive, imaginative functions ate better.

It is also good to be in reflective mode, not in a rush to judgment.    Sometimes equipment, especially communication type equipment, can have breakdowns.    People from one’s past often come back in one’s life during Mercury Retrograde, or at least they tend to come back more strongly in dreams or memories.   Making big decisions or signing important documents is not advised unless necessary.

And with the Eclipses happening at the same time, things may seem very out of the ordinary.    Everything may not be as it seems, so trust the process, let everything play out before jumping to conclusions or being impulsive or emotionally reactive.

During the month of October, or even a bit before, shifting tides will help you to release what needs to go, and to open up to new light, ideas, and inspirations.   You can be taken out of any ruts you may be in, and have the opportunity to shift your attitudes or beliefs.  Old patterns can be transformed, healing is easier to access.

World events should intensify greatly during Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.  The war on the Islamist State will intensify.  Issues with Israel and Iran may break open.  The economy may face new shocks in October.  Issues with Russia may intensify.   And other important global events may happen also.  The Middle East is in the process of great transformation, with more and more chaos engulfing the region.  It is getting more and more complicated there, and allegiances are always shifting.   Eradicating the “enemy” is impossible and the bombing in Syria and Iraq is only stirring up a hornets nest of world violence.

The first eclipse, the Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries is a Cardinal  T-Square  makes close aspect again to the USA Sun and Saturn from its natal chart of July 4 1776.    The USA over the next year will be going through much important change.

It is in the process of losing its Superpower status, and becoming a more equal member of the world community.   Military and Economic challenges will greatly affect the USA over that time period.

The Aries Full Moon Eclipse Cardinal T-Square will tend to bring up issues about independence versus making relationship.  Also issues around empowerment and self assertion are likely to come up.  Do your best to balance your own needs with the needs of others during this time period. You may be pressed to make improvements in that area of relating.

Remember you are breaking out of old programming that limits your ability to actualize your authentic soul self and to find more purpose and satisfaction in your life.    During this Autumn Eclipse Season you may become more aware that you have been trying to be someone you are expected to be instead of being true to your self.   Begin or continue to let go of people who you have developed unhealthy dynamics with.   In some cases you will be able to work out these dynamics with others and transform how you relate with them.

There is nothing to freak out about during this Eclipse Season. The best way to look at it is to see that movement is necessary now in order to align your self with the waves of change from planetary configurations.  It is so easy to just be a servant to our habits and usual patterns of behavior.  During these Eclipse Seasons we are reminded that life does not stay the same.  Our lives have seasons just like nature does, and we need at these times to put to rest that which is ending, and to open up to an embrace the natural transformations.

The Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year opened the gates to a new collective and personal chapter of our lives.   Now the Autumn Eclipse Season pushes us further into that new chapter, and in the process helps us to release the old and press on into the new.   We are closer than ever to a full admittance into the Age of Aquarius.   The birth pains may increase at times, but keep your eye on the  bigger picture:  Birth of a New Age.

Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 Begins and Astrology Forecast September 21-27.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 20, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

The winds are shifting this coming week and picking up strength, bringing us the beginning of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.

We may begin to experience or at least feel these winds of change as early as Sunday when Mars squares Neptune.  Then on Monday September 22 at 10:29 PM EDT is the Autumn Equinox.

This year’s Autumn Equinox is more powerful then usual and promises a most intense Autumn season ahead.  That is so because Pluto will be changing directions from Retrograde to Direct less than two hours before the Equinox.

That means that Pluto’s energy and meaning will be a big part of what is felt and experienced surrounding the time of the Equinox.

Autumn Equinox is like the sunset time of the year, as the Sun is just beginning to come down for the year.    Light and dark minutes are equal at the Autumn Equinox, but right after that moment of equality dark minutes begin to increase as light minutes begin to wane.

The Yin energies get stronger, and colder darker times ahead can be felt.  And of course this is not just felt physically, as the holistic world we are in lets us know it is time to begin to feel more deeply emotionally and spiritually as well.

Since the Autumn Equinox also means that the Sun is moving into Libra for a month, we become more socially conscious and more relationship conscious at this time.  Our yang motivations to focus more on our self and our personal needs and personal growth are beginning to shift.

Now we realize and appreciate our needs to love and be loved, to make connection, to live more outside our personal bubble.  We may also, as is aligned with the coming darker and colder days, realize we need others in our life to feel truly warm and safe.

This year the Autumn Equinox may bring us to feel this shift more intensely and deeply, as Pluto is in the spotlight of our awareness.

Pluto, Guardian of the Underworld, brings up in a powerful way the “darker” feelings, thoughts, and secrets.  It sometimes quite powerfully or explosively brings up emotions or issues that we have suppressed and even repressed.

In relationship to others that means we may speak our minds in a more direct way, emotionally letting out that which we have previously held in.

In that process we are speaking our truth and hence empowering ourselves.  We may also be pushing the buttons of someone else and causing them to also say things in a more primal and direct manner.

This may cause a very intense and meaningful discussion that clears the air and either brings about a healing or more animosity toward one another.   Sometimes there is also a letting go of someone who is not right for you anymore.

In the greater world there is a possibility of a powerful world event around this time;  but if not now,  Pluto being a  part of the signature of Autumn 2014 promises us that important world events will happen definitely during the season at some time. The Middle East is still in the spotlight for potential events with Iraq and Syria, Islamic State and Israel.

This is a dark moon time early this week, bringing a New Moon in Libra on September 24 at 2:14 AM EDT.

After the lunar crescent is seen in the sky on the 25th, the energies of the New Moon in Libra truly take form. That means that words and intentions become more about “us” and “you” than “me” and ‘mine”.

It becomes easier to find connections in all sorts of ways;  and desires for beauty, refinement, and social graces get stronger.  Make sure, however, “not to give up the baby along with the bathwater”. That means you do not want to accommodate others so much that you are forgetting about your own needs.

Work things out with others now and truly listen, but make sure you balance that with standing your ground around your own integrity.  Pluto changing directions could cause some eruptions of “negative” emotions as part of the process of trying to work things out.  Libra usually brings more peace and harmony, but Pluto will bring more intensity than the usual Libra time of year.

Remember that Autumn Eclipse Season begins this week and it is just the beginning of a most powerful season ahead. There will be much movement soon in many ways.

Stuck energies do not stand much of a chance, old patterns will be challenged, new ways of thinking and acting will be breaking through.

You are in a New Chapter of your life, and whatever is in your life that does not fit into this new phase will need to be let go.  You may try to hold on, but that will only bring more pain and misery.

Though it may feel unsafe or insecure to let go, just allow your self to feel what it would be like to keep the status quo.  Would you feel trapped?  Would your heart and spirit be dimmed?

If what you are holding onto represents a disrespecting of your self, are you ready now to respect and love your self more by letting go of the old person or job or home or belief?

This could be a very important time this season to liberate your self from that which has chained your heart and soul and free spirit. It is time to move on.

To add to the shifting tides, Mercury will go Retrograde on October 4.  Then on October 8 is the first of two eclipses:  A New Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries.  This Eclipse makes a powerful T-square with Uranus and Pluto, bringing huge waves of healing and transformation.

Then on October 23 is a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio.    That Lunar cycle will take us to the New Moon in Sagittarius on November 22, a time when Autumn Eclipse Season comes to an end.

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

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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