Transformation at Work and Astrology Forecast September 30- October 6.

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Powers of transformation are increasing this week.   Pluto has been slowing down while in the process of shifting from Retrograde to Direct on Sunday September 30.

Pluto, Guardian of the Underworld, brings up to the surface all the darker, more primal energies stored down below.  It is also like a black hole vortex, sucking down into its core whatever is losing its spirit and soul.

As it is changing directions, and for days after it goes back Direct, Pluto is moving more slowly while its energy permeates our consciousness.

What happened with Kavanaugh and the Senate this past week is so like Pluto.  People are letting go of civility and letting primal passions take over.  That includes the good, bad, and ugly emotional expressions of it.

As Pluto brings up the darker elements, it seeks to purge that which is old and dying matter. Old patterns of behavior, traumas and wounds come up to be intimately seen and re-experienced. Then comes purging, healing, catharsis and finally rebirth like the Phoenix rising.

And speaking of Phoenix, Arizona Senator Flake was the catalyst this past week for potential transformation this coming week.

He created a bridge between the warring political enemies, by demanding a thorough FBI investigation of the accusations of Doctor Ford and others against Judge Kavanaugh.

In your own life, feel the deep transformation moving through the bowels of our human souls.

You can now deal with what is needing to be experienced in order for transformation to occur.

You can expect over the next several days an opportunity to move through what may have seemed like stuck blocks in the system. And that is followed by a feeling of moving forward with more confidence in the New Chapter of your life.

When Jupiter starts its year long adventure in Sagittarius this November, the fiery light will be pushing hard through the blocks and igniting new ways.

Tuesday October 2 gets Mercury making a square to the recently Direct and slow moving Pluto. This affords you an opportunity to go deeper inside to find deeper insight into matters.

Your “third eye” chakra is being activated then to help you to see more deeply into matters and issues.

Also on Tuesday October 2, the 4th and last quarter phase of the lunar cycle begins with the Moon in CancerThe New Moon in Virgo began this lunar cycle, and now in the 4th quarter it is time to clean up and bring all together in preparation for the New Moon in Libra on October 8.

And another important planetary movement happens this week, as Venus is going Retrograde starting Friday October 5.

Venus is in Scorpio as it goes Retrograde, and that connects well with the Pluto emphasis this week.

Pluto is the “ruling” planet of Scorpio, so Venus going Retrograde in Scorpio brings a theme of deep, primal, passionate emotional expressions.

Like all planets, as Venus slows down to change directions its energy and meaning get stronger in our collective energy field.

Venus is about heart issues related to relationships, all kinds of relationship.  

So Venus in Pluto-flavored Scorpio will seek to bring up relationship passions, deeper relationship insights, and potential conflicts that “put all the cards on the table” and make real what has previously been avoided or suppressed.

Since Venus is going to be Retrograde until November 16, past relationships and relationship patterns will be in the spotlight of our awareness.

These old dysfunctional and toxic relationship patterns that previously have gone nowhere toward resolution, now will have potential for healing and transformation into better ways of relating.

Relationship counseling can do more than usual for you over the next several weeks, so keep that as an option.

Yet this Venus Retrograde will affect all types of relationship, not just romantic ones. So families, friendships, work relationships, etc may be affected.

If conflicts come up for you, keep the higher meaningful perspective on them, no matter how ugly they may become.

The conflicts are meant to be, and to help you to bring things to a head, where they can be transformed and changed, or in some cases ended.

It will be much more difficult during this Venus Retrograde to keep status quo, same-old patterns on life support systems.   You are ready for a change.

Now that conflicts, especially in the world, are getting quite ugly; it is easy to get negative and cynical about our world.

And yes something is falling apart and dying!  It is the Old Paradigm and Age.  Let it die.  Stop trying to bring it back to a saner old normal place. That is gone now. There is a better place ahead.

Keep your perspective on what is truly happening. If you are a progressive liberal look at Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortes or Jill Stein for inspiration. If you are a conservative look at Ben Shapiro or Ron Paul or even Senator Flake for inspiration. Look at the Green Party or the Libertarian Party for more pure versions of liberal and conservative.

The Yin/Yang symbol is for all opposites, male and female, dark and light or even conservative and liberal. Opposites are held in the circle of unity in the Yin/Yang symbol- not separation.

We need people of integrity of all parties and persuasions. We need respectful conversation between those of different opinion, in order to find what is in the common good. Those who believe differently than you are not the enemy.

Trump, as dysfunctional and unbalanced as he is, is a bridge into our new world. He and what he represents is causing the old system to implode before our eyes.

But he and what he represents are not what will stay and take over.

So keep the faith and stay on your higher path. If you have recently been pulled off the path, this week you can right the ship toward your personal evolution into the Age of Aquarius consciousness.

The light of a new world is shining, though your fears may be creating shadows that make it difficult to know.

Be careful not to get sucked into the black hole of dying lights. You have the ability of conscious intention, prayer, and meditative connection to Source.

Take the ride out of your uncomfortable comfort zones and connect with the energies of soul and spirit that are bringing us together in meaning.

Love and Truth run this Universe. Let it Be.

till next week,

Leo

As Above, So Below and Astrology Forecast September 23-29

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 22, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we enter the annual portal into Autumn here in the Northern Hemisphere.

 The Autumn Equinox is on Saturday September 22 at 9:54 PM EDT.  As always, that means that the Sun moves into Libra at that Equinox moment.  The Sun stays in Libra for 30 days.

Two days later, on September 24, the Moon catches up to the Sun from its opposite position.  So the Moon in Aries opposes the Sun in Libra to form a Full Moon at 10:52 PM EDT.

Autumn Equinox is a time when light and dark minutes are equal.  That means yin and yang, “male” and “female” are also equal.

Then right after that Autumn Equinox moment of equality- dark, yin, “female” energy starts growing in relationship to the dimming energies of light, yang, and “male”.

At Winter Solstice dark is at its zenith.  Then at Spring Equinox we have equality again, but with light, yang energies beginning to increase.

Autumn Equinox symbolizes a time of year when we begin to know that darker, colder days are coming.  It is a time when personal striving and ambition begin to feel less important than relationships and social matters.

On a deep level, mortality can be felt as more real as darkness begins to grow.  We seek companionship to help us through the night.

And Libra brings us the Goddess of Relationship- Venus, which is the “ruling” planet of Libra.

Libra finds relationship and relating as more important than individual needs for independence and alone-time.

Libra is the scale of balance, always sensitive to equality and fairness as a result.

Libra is the master of diplomacy and mediation, able to see both sides of an issue.  As such it can have a really difficult time making decisions. Its ability to balance contributes to its talent at finding symmetry, which aids in its talent to balance colors, which aids its talent at creating beauty.

At the Full Moon in Aries two days later on the 24th, the Sun in Libra seeks relationship and at its best is very into the “other” person.

But the Full Moon has the Moon in Aries, and Aries seeks independence, being true to self, and taking care of personal needs and desires.

So at this Full Moon in Libra/Aries, it may be very important to balance doing what one wants to do for oneself,  with doing what someone else wants or what is best for the relationship.

Venus rules Libra and Mars rules Aries, so peace or war, connection or conflict may be decided personally and globally around the time of the full moon.

Saturn is also in aspect to this Full Moon, making close square to both Sun in Libra and Moon in Aries.

So if peace or war- or Female way  or Male way- cannot be decided, there will be a hand of fate or time that comes into play to make the decision.

Look at the Kavanaugh/Ford congressional proceedings to be reflective of these planetary movements.

Also this week Pluto is slowing down in order to go from Retrograde to Direct on Sunday the 30th of September.

That means that especially toward the end of this week intensity increases, passions are stirred, power struggles are more likely, and energies for transformation are stronger.

We are solidly beyond Summer Eclipse Season now, yet we are still in waiting for events that are developing as a result of that Eclipse Season.  Watch Syria/Middle East, Korea, and China trade to come front and center this Autumn.

Saturn makes its last pass of the USA natal Venus and Jupiter this Autumn. Mars and Jupiter make an important conjunction and square to the USA natal Moon this Autumn too. Important shifts for America are happening.

Saturn made its first pass to the USA Venus and Jupiter in January/February when Winter Eclipse Season was happening. The stock market reached a new high before falling dramatically then.

And last week the market reached a new high, higher than that previous high last January.   Another Eclipse Season has passed, and now Saturn goes back to where it was back in January/February.

Chances for a dramatic market drop are great again this Autumn.

For your personal life, remember we have entered a New Chapter of our lives.

Most have not fully adapted to this New Chapter yet.  There is still a purging of the old stories, traumas, and energy patterns from the Old Chapter.  There is still a “not-knowing” of what this New Chapter is all about.

We are caught between worlds, so to speak, no longer a part of the past, but not yet fully connected to our new path.

So living in the moment is more important than ever, allowing the processes of nature, your higher self, and the Universe to play out.

This makes trust and faith especially important now.

And horrific past personal events can make having trust and faith very challenging.

Keep in mind that there is a “higher/deeper Source” that is always there in the best interest of your soul and spirit.

It is true that surrendering to that Source takes ultimate ego control away from you.  But ego control keeps you stuck when it is time to grow and change.

Trust that Source and watch your life gain wings to fly through this transition time in your life.

Allow the Sun to go down now at the Sunset time of Autumn Equinox this week. Surrender to Nature and allow your soul to go down and yin-ward with it.

All is in Divine order. It our fears that see differently. The Earth and Heavens are connected and working together.  It is our fears that see differently.

“As Above/So Below” is metaphysical truth and Astrology is its translator.

Till next week,

Leo

Another Turning Point and Astrology Forecast September 24-30

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 23, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

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.

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.

And my wife Deborah has just started a blog will bring to you a greater sense of life’s sacredness and our human connection to our Earth, Feminine mysteries and that which brings us all together in unity.

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.
