Doing the Right Thing and Astrology Forecast December 1-7

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on November 30, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week begins in the early days of the lunar cycle that began at the Sagittarius New Moon on November 26.

Sagittarius is a fiery, expansive energy that often shows us an inspiration to do something new and adventurous.   Sagittarius brings a light and warmth, even as we in the Northern Hemisphere of Planet Earth are facing darker and colder days now.

Sagittarius seeks to always be positive and hopeful, to have faith in oneself,  life itself, or whatever gods or goddesses one believes in.

Sagittarius is the centaur with the archer on top shooting for the stars, while being part horse down below.

That symbolizes a Sagittarius challenge:  It likes to take the “high road” with zestful optimism. It can sometimes be so “up” that it can seem manic.  If it stays in this “up”  position for a long time, it may be avoiding being aware of its body, which can thus cause body issues or illness.

Sagittarius wants to believe it lives in a meaningful Universe, or at least believe it can find important answers that will provide a positive life experience

Sagittarius can be rather opinionated and doubting it can be wrong. Its presence, however, usually gets people to feel more positive and/or inspired.  It can have great trust in its intuition, but that confidence sometimes leads to “leaping before it looks” and hence experiencing a difficult situation.

Right now, with all the difficulties we are facing, it is hopefully leaving us with some hope and faith.  Doing positive visualization in your meditation can go a long way during Sagittarius times. The holidays during Sagittarius times can help with feeling more positive, but that is not lasting.

This Monday December 2 takes Jupiter out of Sagittarius, where it has resided for the last year, and drops it into Capricorn, where it will live for the net year.

Jupiter loves to be in Sagittarius as it is expansive and “positive”.  Capricorn is “ruled” by Saturn, where gravity is stronger. And that is not liked by free-spirit Jupiter.

So for the next year, while Jupiter is in Capricorn, we collectively need to reign ourselves in so we can deal with the realities of our lives.

When Jupiter accepts its stay in Capricorn, it can then do well with manifesting its dreams or goals in the real 3-D world.

So do not give up your dreams while Jupiter is in Capricorn. Instead compromise with the real world enough to find your niche’ in the growing community of the Age of Aquarius.

We now have Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all in Capricorn together, which has not happened for several hundred years.

It is time to begin, for real, building the Age of Aquarius.

Mercury is no longer in Retrograde, and a new year is soon to be born. And it will be born while we enjoy important planetary movements and meaningful eclipses.

Uranus goes Direct on January 10, which puts all planets Direct, which does not often happen.

So it is time now to find our place in this new world, even as the old one crumbles.

Know that we will not go back to how it was with Obama or anyone else.  During Trump time, we have entered a world with little connection to the America we have all known. That opens doors not previously noticed.

It is rather ironic, I believe, to be in this crazy world we cannot relate to, which has come to our consciousness since a man was elected promising to make America Great Again.

Soon presidential primaries begin, and the potential future is being presented to us by candidates who are promising to take us into a world less governed by big money and corporations, and more governed by “we the people”.

Do you believe we can do that? Do you want to do that? That equality is very Aquarius.  Run by the people is very Aquarius.

It is our future.  This is not something I am necessarily wishing- It is what is destined to happen.

What will need to happen for this to be reality?  A lot will need to happen in order for our world to not be run by those who are the best competitors.

That old paradigm believes we are these people out only for ourselves, it is the best we can do to use that Capitalistic selfishness to build the world.

But how about those who are not great competitors?  They deserve to be poor in the survival of the fittest world?

We have built a world on that old premise,  but look at the people who run it in the main.

Trump shows the ultimate truth of that world: Rich and famous wins, no matter what their character is like.

We will have a better world with more people at the top who are caring, loving, honest people who care about one another, and know all the dots in the Universe are connected.

That is the new spirituality, no longer the “spirituality” of religions who use rigid moral rules and guilt to keep our selfish selves under control.

Do you need guilt to get you to do the “right thing”? Do you need Commandments?

Or have you evolved to a place where it is natural to care for your self while also caring how others live? That is the world of connections guided by Love and Truth.

Talk with you next week,

Leo

Mercury Back Direct and Astrology Forecast March 24-30

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on March 23, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides now, which means we are shifting our consciousness, our minds, and perhaps our inner beliefs as well.

Mercury is finally going back Direct this week, and as it goes back Direct we have the promise of receiving more clarity and direction soon.

Mercury goes back Direct on Thursday March 28 at 9:59 AM EDT.

Now that does not mean all of a sudden everything is crystal clear, or that signs pointing us in the right direction will be abundant and billboard certain.

Nevertheless, we should feel the gear shift in our minds changing from reverse to neutral,  then to Drive.

The neutral gear is on right before, right on , and right after the time Mercury goes direct.

That time period can actually be the most distorted, most foggy, or most confusing time in the Mercury cycle.

Mercury “rules” thinking, sharing information, and communication.  So during a few days surrounding that shift out of reverse, we may feel like everything is getting better for finding clarity and direction.  But usually it takes an additional week or 10 days before a more complete and clear picture appears.

As we have been writing, April 5 at the Aries New Moon is a good marking point for moving forward with clear direction and intention.

But even then, both Saturn and Pluto will be square the New Moon, which could bring some obstacles experienced on our path forward.

But for this week,  let in the notion that clarity is wanting to form now.  But the slow process of Mercury getting back to its usual Direct speed,  deems it is still important to hold back and wait for the clouds to fully part before jumping to conclusions or leaping before you look.

With Mercury slowing down to shift from Reverse to Direct, the Mueller report comes out, though in some kind of secrecy.

How much of it will be made public?  Why are there no new indictments?  Will other branches of government or other legal avenues still be investigating.  And what is in this report?

Not being made totally public seems to me to be an obvious affront to our democracy, which is “of the people by the people, and for the people”. Is it not?

But Mercury Retrograde is still in force till Thursday the 28th; then immediately afterward will still be rather murky in its lenses for 10 days or so afterward.

So clarity will be slow to form around this Mueller report.  And Trump’s fate will not be sealed yet either.

But as we have been expressing, Trump is not the most important issue. He is merely an actor in this drama of a changing of ages and paradigms.

The transformation of our consciousness and heart is of utmost importance now.  And we each need to become what we believe in.

We each also need to know and own and be true to our role or function or purpose in this changing world now.

The Military Industrial Complex is coming down, out of the form it is currently occupying.

So the economy and military world condition of the USA is only in the beginning stages of transformation.  This transformation will happen no matter who the elected officials are.

Pluto (in its 1st ever natal USA Return), Saturn and Jupiter will be making triple conjunction with the USA natal Pluto. This happens 2019-2024. 

In its natal chart, the USA has Pluto in Capricorn in its 2nd house.  That placement is symbolic of the Military Industrial Complex.

The transformation will be immense and will affect the whole world.  The need to reform  and transform this world and each of our consciousness’ into the better angels of the Age of Aquarius is so important now, as that endeavor will help provide the foundation for this New World.

It is important to elect people who are most attuned to the principles, values and ideals of a new age and paradigm.

So 2020 becomes so important in that regard, especially so because right after the November 2020 Election Day, in December 2020: Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, giving us a sign that a portal into the Age of Aquarius will be opening then.

This Week:

In addition to the shift of Mercury from Retrograde to Direct this week, we also have Venus going into Pisces on Tuesday the 26th; the 4th and last quarter Moon in Capricorn on the 28th; and Mars entering Gemini on the 30th.

Venus going into Pisces on the 26th is a wake up call for rebooting our heart energy to include more empathy and compassion now.

Quan Yin is an apt archetype for Venus in Pisces.   Venus in Pisces, with its compassion, does need, however, to have the kind of boundaries that stop them from being used or from sacrificing themselves into a selfless position.

Venus will stay in Pisces until April 20, so you have some time to do some healing and give more care to your relationships.

In doing counseling of couples for many years, I have noticed the most improvements in relationships when each partner can truly put themselves in the shoes of the other.

Empathy is a solid bridge between people’s hearts. This does not mean forgetting about your own needs. But it does mean putting their needs as important as your own.

The 4th quarter Moon in Capricorn is on the same day as Mercury going back Direct.

So it is good to be aware that the Moon is darkening every day until the New Moon in Aries on February 5.

So the Yin-ward journey of this darkening 4th quarter Moon in Capricorn,  is needing to be made real and needs to hold strong boundaries.

There is no room now for pity parties; there is plenty of room for making plans that will produce action later.

Mars goes into Gemini on the 31st at 2:12 AM EDT.   It stays there until May 15, when it goes into Cancer. On its way through Gemini in early May, it makes conjunction with the USA natal Mars in Gemini.

And it also will oppose transiting Jupiter in Sagittarius, which will be opposing the USA natal Mars in Gemini.

And Trump’s natal Sun and Moon in Gemini and Sagittarius, respectively, will be also aspected as they make close natal contact with the USA militant and Military Mars.

This shows that the USA police and/or military will be in the spotlight this Spring 2019.

For all of us Mars in Gemini signifies a time when we are more curious, more filled with questions and desires to question authority or accepted ways of being.

Mars in Gemini motivates us to learn or teach;  to get more objective facts; to communicate, write, or talk more; to open our minds to new ways of thinking.

Next week we experience the force of a New Moon in Aries on April 5. I will have a new video out before then.

Till next week,

Leo

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer and Astrology Forecast July 8-14

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Powerful and gusty winds are gathering now, so to speak. We are getting ourselves ready for the upcoming stormy eclipses.  There are 3 of them this summer .

The first one is this week on Thursday July 12 at 10:48 PM EDT.   It is a partial Lunar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer.  At the same time, Guardian of the Underworld Pluto will be making an almost exact opposition to that eclipsed New Moon.  The New Moon is at 20+ degrees of Cancer, while Pluto will be at 20+ degrees of Capricorn that day: a potential perfect storm.

The sign Cancer is an archetypal Mother, of the Divine Feminine,   It can be very nurturing and protective, with desire to take care of others.  It must, however, make sure not to hover over with over-protectiveness.

By contrast Pluto in Capricorn is a powerful force penetrating deeply into the core of something or someone, and making things passionate and Real. It must make sure to not be “too real” or destructive. But it does need to be destructive enough to put to rest a dying Chapter of life; and that makes room for a Phoenix to rise up with new life.

So this Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer this week is like a strongly protected  cocoon or womb. And Pluto in Capricorn is like a ruthless energy that wants to destroy the protective shell that has held back spirit, life and passion.

It is soon time to begin the process of leaving the Garden of protection, to cut the umbilic cord, to  rise up with the dawning.

Pluto sitting  opposite this Solar Eclipse in Cancer will provide a reality check for our individual lives, our families, and certainly the United States.

That which is outliving its intended life span,  whether that is a soul, an object, and most importantly a passing chapter of one’s life, will be challenged to let go and allow the death which precedes the birth.

If a couple has finished raising their child, who is now ready to embark on their life journey, they now are in a transition between two Chapters of their lives.

And so it is best if they look to see if there is a new “contract” to create a continued life together- or not.

In the greater world, we are experiencing a death of the old America, contrary to the MAGA culture that believes we will return to a time that has passed us by quite naturally.

That death is not going to be any easy one, as some of  the “guardians” of the old world will lie, cheat, and steal in order to keep the old country and world paradigm alive and with continued privilege.

No matter how we view the people from the MAGA world, we need to listen, not dismiss and feel hatred for.

We do not need to build a world that will then abuse power the same way. it has been.  White men, corporate ways, etc. are not the enemy.

The “enemy” is the part inside each of us that unfairly judges others, who are different than us,  and seeks to make some people better or worse than others.

So now, early this week we are in the waning part of the lunar cycle. It is a time to let go of what we need to let go.

Last quarter Moons, especially when close to the New Moon, are perfect times to release and let go.  What are you ready to shed in your life, what has outlived its purpose?

While still in the last quarter Moon phase, Jupiter changes from Retrograde to Direct Tuesday July 10.

You should get an energetic boost from this, even before the Solar Eclipse New Moon on the 12th.

Jupiter in Scorpio tends to expand into more passion and intensity, igniting one’s deeper soul and instincts. Just be careful not to set yourself up for any abuses again or to be abusive yourself.

Scorpio is power, and Jupiter in Scorpio can certainly help one to be more empowered and passionately assertive.

That Jupiter movement to Direct will expand Jupiter’s influence, yet the main course is still the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer.

Be careful to make boundaries around your emotions, not to lose your center and integrity.

The culture wars have been heating up, and will certainly boil over during Eclipse Season.

When you look at the people in leadership roles in our country and world it looks pretty bad.

I know it feels frightening sometimes to contemplate the old world and its economy crashing and burning. Would you choose instead keeping this world Trump wants to build?

What if crash and burn is the only way we can rid ourselves of selfish ego driven leaders and soul dead institutions and people, and can transform our human condition, our environment, and our way of treating one another, would you want it that way?

We are looking potentially at a great amount of chaos if all falls down. And if it doesn’t, the tyrant loving president of the USA may build a walled-in America that would be really difficult to transform. And it would become a military/corporate world even worse than the current military/corporate world.

We are at a major American and world crossroads.  One way or another we are on the precipice of major American and world transformation.

Israel, Palestine, North Korea, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Syria are lands that are in  danger and in flux. So much is coming to a head now in these places.

The economy, with over priced bubble homes, poor health care programs, school debt that is really depressing for many,  and rampant greed, needs huge change.

And much will shake up during Summer Eclipse Season.

Keep up the meditation so you can stay connected and centered during this Eclipse Season.

Have you noticed how veils are being lifted in consciousness,  and how visitors, apparently from other dimensions, are sneaking into meditation more and more?

We are not merely witnessing the Fall of the Empire.  We can also open our hearts and minds to other realities, realities aligned with the Age of Aquarius we are moving into together.

If we do not let fear, hatred, cynicism, and politics keep us down, we allow ourselves to open doors and windows into new consciousness and new possibilities.

Be discerning who you spend your time with. Do they really see you and appreciate you?  Do they suck your life spirit like a vampire?  Do they constantly pull on you to give them what they want from you?  Do they make fun of your spirituality?

It is important we each protect ourselves from toxic energy.

Take the ride of this Summer Eclipse Season 2018.  Keep yourself centered inside and open to what your soul and the Universe wants to show you.

Till next week,

Leo

Entering a New Chapter of Life and Astrology Forecast January 15-21.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 14, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we come down from the strong Cardinal Grand Cross Full Moon in Cancer last Thursday January 12.

But only one “leg” of the Grand Cross has left the powerful configuration, that being the Full Moon in Cancer.  The 3 legs that remain make a Cardinal T-square formation which has us pulled in 3 different directions instead of 4.

It is comprised of Jupiter in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn, and Uranus in Aries.  It will continue to be effective until late April, when the”orb” or distance between the planets gets too wide to be pertinent.

This T-square, still a very important configuration, will affect everyone to some degree; but its greatest impression will be with people who have planets in the middle to late degrees of cardinal signs:  Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.

This emphasis on cardinal signs, which are the signs at the beginnings of seasons, at the Solstices and Equinoxes, suggests we are moving into important times of New Beginnings.

Uranus in Aries suggests we are breaking out of an old way of being and empowering ourselves; Jupiter in Libra suggests a higher value of fairness and being relational; Pluto in Capricorn suggests we are transforming out of old soul-dead structures, and in the process of creating new ones.

Since those planetary placements form a T-square, what each placement represents is at odds with each other placement.

So it may be quite difficult to be free of old ways in a self empowering manner (Uranus in Aries), while at the same time able to be in meaningful relationship (Jupiter in Libra).  Or it may be difficult to break down and release old security structures (Pluto in Capricorn) and still be fair minded and balanced (Jupiter in Libra).

We are being pulled in different directions and it is challenging to stay centered.  It is best not to try too hard, and instead surrender to the process with trust in yourself and the Universe.

Also now all planets are going Direct until February 6, when Jupiter goes retrograde.  All planets Direct is a somewhat rare occurrence, and it also suggests we are moving forward into new beginnings.

On a global scale the Inauguration of Donald Trump is happening on January 20, and on the next day there is a Million Woman March on Washington DC as well as on state capitols and cities around the country.

This new era shows us a huge division between different cultures and ways of life in the USA and also in the greater world.

I believe we are about to go through a big storm that will shake things up in a big way over the next few years.

This storm will clear the way for the Age of Aquarius. For humanity it will separate the “wheat from the chaff” in an evolutionary process.

And it will open portals for more light to shine through so we can have a world of Diversity within Unity, a world run by Love and Truth, and a knowing the Universe is a place inside each of us that has all the dots connected in greater meaning.

We were born to be alive at this important time in human evolution on Planet Earth.  So find your role and place in it, and trust the Soul’s process.

Later this coming week there are planetary shifts that show us a turning point.

On Thursday January 19 the Sun moves into Aquarius, while the 4th quarter Moon in Scorpio squares it.

This signifies a movement into a greater darkening of the light of the Moon.  The Sun is shining in Aquarius while the Moon is showing us more darkness in Scorpio.

On the same day Mars in Pisces will be met with difficulty from Saturn in Sagittarius. Mars in Pisces seeks unity in deeper consciousness, and that will be inhibited by Saturn showing us what is happening in reality.

These events on the 19th open the way for the Inauguration on the 20th and the Million Woman March on the 21st.  These events represent the Sun square the Moon for sure, but also Mars square Saturn as unity is blocked by our current reality.

When this 4th Quarter phase of the lunar cycle is completed, we will experience a New Moon in Aquarius on January 27.

That New Moon in Aquarius will show us the first winds blowing in from the coming eclipses in February.

So we can consider Eclipse Season beginning on January 27, setting us up for the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on February 10 and the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

Much will be shaken up during this coming Eclipse Season.  Change and transformation will be pushing through the blocks and impediments in our consciousness and belief systems.

This force will crack open what is stuck, so we can change our lives according to our Soul’s intentions.

In the greater world, the new Trump administration will experience during Eclipse Season  its first great challenges to what it intends to do.

And each of us will need to adjust to this New Chapter in our personal and global lives.

The Trump administration facing powerful backlash to its intentions is an integral part of this New Global Chapter of our lives.

And each of us will be challenged in this New Chapter to stay on our spiritual paths with our deeper values.

We cannot let the increasing darkness in world affairs sweep us into fear and hatred.

We must keep our trust in our deeper souls and the Universe, and our belief we are evolving into an Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo
