Bridge of Connection and Astrology Forecast November 27-December 3.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 26, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We come to the end of the 4th quarter lunar phase this week.   That lunar cycle began at the New Moon in Scorpio on October 30.  This passing lunar cycle included the deep realities that Scorpio represents; the mystery of Samhain; and the very intense election for President of the USA.

We finish that lunar cycle on November 29  as we experience a New Moon in Sagittarius at 7:18 AM EST that day.

Time to at least begin to let go of processing our deep hurts from what occurred this past lunar month.

Scorpio takes one to reality- deeper core reality.   It brings out secrets and hidden agendas. It is sign of transformation, ruled by planet Pluto, god of the underworld.  As such, it helps one to let go, release, and let die; while then assisting in having a sense of rebirth or renewal.

And Sagittarius is the perfect sign for rising in renewal.

This New Moon in Sagittarius on November 29 is meant to be a trigger to start again to have new beginnings.

Sagittarius is a sign of inspiration and taking the high road.  It helps one to find answers or meaning.  It is intuitive and free spirited by nature, and likes to take adventures.

This Sagittarius New Moon is squared by Neptune, so there may be more confusion than with the usual Sagittarius New Moon.

Neptune will also help with the process of surrending and letting go.  This is a time to let go of set agendas and to trust the process, not focus on the bottom line or end result.

Taking the high road instead of expressing our more negative instincts is best now with Sagittarius.

If one makes intention for what is best for all concerned, even if one’s ego disagrees, then one is aligned with the higher realms of the Universe.

Sagittarius is also about feeling joy and upliftment, so do what brings you joy and inspiration now.

Holidays, if they are celebrated in true heart joy, connects with Sagittarius.

If instead holidays are about stress, rushing around, and having resentments; then it is not aligned with Sagittarius.

So make a concerted effort at this time of year to raise your vibration to a higher octave.

Spiritual practices will be rewarded at this time of year also.

So it is a good time after this New Moon in Sagitarius to get out of your funk and go back to seeing everything that is happening from a bigger picture of meaning, of everything happening for a reason.

Chiron in Pisces changes direction from retrograde to Direct on Thursday December 1.

Chiron represents a healing bridge from one extreme to another.  So now you may be split between one part of you that is hurt, angry, and feeling depressed; and another part of you that is seeing everything from a higher perspective.

Chiron can help you find a bridge between these extremes.  This bridge will serve you to find a healing inside, and may also help you to have empathy for those you could not previously understand.

This  presidential election has revealed a big split in the United States between two very different cultures.

There has been no bridge for many in understanding the other culture.  Arguably the last time there was such a huge split in America was when there was a Civil War between the North and South.

Now the split is between so called red and blue state cultures.  It is possible there will be riots in the streets and armed conflict if we do not try our best to find  middle ground and some semblance of unity as a nation.

Much of the world is going through a similar struggle as there is a greater emphasis now on Nationalism and keeping borders stronger against immigrants and migrants.

Trump’s wall is not much different from Brexit and Britain’s need to separate from the European Union while keeping out those who are migrating from other cultures.

Other European countries are going through similar struggles.

Can we not understand both sides of the issue?  It is understandable that some want to go back to their original identity, keep their culture pure, and to keep the jobs.

But it is also quite understandable to want to have greater empathy for others who are different, to help those in trouble, and to want to have more diversity in one’s country.

At the same time as we are raising our spirits with this New Moon in Sagittarius, we are experiencing darker days on the way to the Winter Solstice on December 21.

The march to Winter Solstice is not just about the physical darkening of our world day by day.  It is also about feeling deep soulful emotions,  sadness, loss, grief, and maybe even despair at times.

That may be difficult to reconcile with the high vibrations and positivity of the New Moon in Sagittarius.

So yes it is time to find a bridge of unity between opposite extremes of yin and yang, light and dark, male and female, human and divine.

And some of your best tools can be meditation and spiritual practices, nature and of course love in your heart combined with truth in your mind.

Finding bridges is also important with the issue of Standing Rock.

We need to find a healing bridge of connection to the native tribes who are feeling abused again.

Now around Thanksgiving especially, native tribes are reminded that Europeans from the beginning denied them the land they lived on and the natural resources they needed.

And now with the building of the oil pipeline, they show little empathy for the plight and needs of the tribes.  And environmentalists are also angy with the pipeline as they believe it will damage the environment.

This could all be worked out by building a bridge of dialogue and truly considering the needs of tribes and environmentalists, as they try to understand the needs of those in power.

Do not the natives who live on that land deserve a voice on how the land they live on and the water they need is used?  Do not environmentalists deserve a voice on how decisions made now will affect future generations?

With the way Native Americans were treated when Europeans first came to their land, building that Chiron Bridge of empathy and understanding now can create a very deep healing between the tribes and those who have held and abused their power.

Till next week,

Leo

Aftermath, Bigger Picture and Astrology Forecast November 13-19

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 12, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Election in America has moved all of us into a New Era of our lives.   So many people I know are deeply upset by the results of that election.  Some of them are feeling deep despair and cannot believe the Universe has taken such (to them) a wrong turn on our path into a new age or new world.

They feel that the last 8 years of President Obama have opened the doors leading to the new age and they hoped that trajectory would continue with the new president. But in their minds it has not with the election of Donald Trump.

This blog has been attempting over the last several months to get us all ready for the Trump win, which in my mind was meant to be.  “You can’t always get what you want”…..but you get what you need.” But why him?

Let’s go back and look at our past and the astrological movements that have unfolded over recent times.

There are three transformational planets: Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.  They have been relatively recently discovered: 1781, 1846, 1930 respectively.

Their discoveries have coincided with our reaching the cusp of the Age of Aquarius.  They are meant to help each of us and our human collective to transform and evolve our consciousness and lives aligned with this new age.

When any two of those three make an aspect with one another it brings a great wave  of transformation, revolution and evolution.

As an example when Uranus made conjunction with Neptune in 1992-1994 the computer and internet revolution began to sweep through our lives. It is now a daily and integral part of all of our lives.  

When Uranus made conjunction with Pluto in 1965-66, it brought on the ’60s and ’70s revolution which dramatically transformed all of our lives as it woke us up to what needed to change in our lives and world.

Back then people sought to end an unjust war in Viet Nam, bring civil rights to race relations and gender issues. Blacks and women were then oppressed in the chains that society had dominated them with.

A corrupt and insensitive USA government was revealed, there was a sexual revolution, there was a clamor for people to take back the world from leaders who took away their individual freedoms and voices.

Yet in the middle of this revolution Richard Nixon was elected to be president in 1968.    This brought such a devastated emotional response from the people, especially young people, who had been previously inspired to transform our country and world. Nixon represented a most restrictive and conservative blockage to the movement forward.

That election combined with the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy that  same year 1968, brought people to their knees in horror, fear and depression.

Nevertheless the revolution continued and before long the war ended and President Nixon resigned from his presidency in the mid ’70s.  Rights for women and African Americans were solidified at that time also. The world had been transformed.

Fast forward to 2011-2016.  Uranus and Pluto have been square to one another, the first major aspect between them since 1965-66 when they were conjunct.

Gays and Lesbians gained the right to marry during that time period.  Ferguson and other cities in the USA erupted in protest at the killings of black people by the police, bringing renewed awareness to racial issues that needed more justice and clearing.

The Islamic State was largely born out of the devastation from another unjust war in Iraq during that time.

Government and Corporate controls of our lives and freedoms were exposed more fully.  The anti Wall Street movement was then born.

Bernie Sanders then in 2015-16 also began his mission to fight the corporations and societal paradigm that separates the wealthy from the 99% who are not very wealthy on this Earth and in America.

The Arab Spring also brought more awareness of dictator control in the Middle East and North Africa.

And in 2016 the presidential election process brought more awareness to the reality of women’s continued fight to be empowered and even more liberated from old societal chains.

And now we have our Richard Nixon in the form of Donald Trump, our new USA president.

The revolution and its attendent motivation for our evolution will be stoked more than ever.

There is no stopping the train barreling toward the Age of Aquarius. No one person or president can derail our movement forward.  But we do need to bring aboard some of those who have not felt understood, who have lost jobs and lives in recent years. And those people voted for Trump.

And as before the young people are revved up to change this world.  And with the empathy and guidance from their elders we will together move forward into this New Age.

So please get up and take responsibility for how you will contribute to this movement.

This week November 13-19 brings a Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus on Monday November 14 at 8:52 AM EST.

Some are calling it a Supermoon as it will be much closer, larger and brighter than usual. It has not been this big since January 1948. In USA it will be best seen on ight of November 13.

More important is the meaning of the Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon.

Like all Full Moons this one takes us to a sense of completion and resolution.

And as it is being formed by the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus, it shows us we are moving toward balancing our more deeply felt passions and emotions (Scorpio) with our sense of solidly and calm (Taurus).

In regards to the election there may be a tug of war inside you between deeply held emotions and passions on the one hand, and a calm centered acceptance on the other hand.

This Full Moon represents a turning point for our attitudes and should be felt from Saturday through Wednesday this coming week, with the most intensity closer to the exact date.

On Saturday November 19 Neptune will be shifting from Retrograde to Direct.  As it goes stationary and then Direct we experience its energy and meaning.

This coming week we will have the Neptunian energies of empathy, compassion, surrender, and escape getting stronger.

Escape may be seductive as a means to ignore reality now.  Empathy is a good trait now to better understand why some people voted the way they did.   For most people it was not about racism and sexism.

And Neptune helps us to surrender- which can help us to let go to a process bigger than we each are, and it can help us to better trust the Universe and its wisdom.

We are all in this together.

Till next week

Leo

USA Transformation and Astrology Forecast November 6-12

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 5, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week brings us to a most powerful climax of an election process that has been so ugly and totally negative.

Our two main presidential candidates have spent little time showing how they would improve the country and its people’s lives.

Instead they have spent a vast majority of time ripping each other apart, and spreading information about one another that tends to demonize their opponent.

The United States is in a serious downturn in its process of transformation.

Over the last few years Uranus and Pluto have been making aspects to the USA natal Sun and Saturn.

In the USA natal chart from July 4 1776, they have the Sun in Cancer square to Saturn in Libra.  Uranus by transit has been squaring that Sun and opposing Saturn. Pluto has been opposing the Sun and squaring Saturn.

So deep and powerful transformation has been happening for the USA and its citizens.

The Sun in Cancer represents the liberal voice in America and the Saturn in Libra represents the conservative voice in America.

In the process of transforming those voices, we have been taken to the most negative and destructive aspect of those voices.

Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump show us what has happened to those values through the Democrat and Republican parties.

The “system” that has been created over the years has been corrupted and dominated by special interests, large government,  large corporations, and large military.

Interests that are not aligned with “of the people, by the people, and for the people” have taken over both parties.

And in the process each party has learned how to make enemy of the other party instead of working together for the betterment of the country and its people.

That is the bad news. The good news is that this very negative reality is part of the process of transformation.

We are not seeing much light at the end of the tunnel right now, but that will change through time as we move into the Age of Aquarius.

In the meantime it is incumbent on each one of us to transform within our own consciousness.

Stop demonizing what is different than what you are or what you believe in.

Transform the fear and find what is clear and true in your mind.  Transform the hatred and find the love and empathy in your heart.

Elections are not meant to be wars.  They are meant to be debates on what we want for our country and our lives.

Let go the wild west ideas of bad guys and good guys.   We all have dark and light inside us and how we work with that dicotomy is what is important.

Do we strive for what is best for each of us and for all of us?  Do we realize that “the other” is not wrong but has a different way of looking at things?

Conservatives by nature want to keep everything connected to tradition and how it has  been or used to be- in their minds.

Progressives by nature want to move toward new ways that are better- in their minds.

But since both those ways of being have been in the process of decay and ultimately transformation, they are no longer as pure or the same as they used to be in their expression.

The Green Party represents the more pure voice of progressive and liberal;  while the Libertarian Party more closely represents the more pure and traditional voice of Conservative.

But of course neither of them will win this election. We are faced with either Clinton or Trump.

Whoever wins the election (Clinton or Trump) will be giving us what we need at a deeper level no matter how it looks or plays out.

No matter who wins, we nevertheless need to release and clear the space from the old ways.  And we may need those old ways thrown into our faces before we can release them  and let go of them forever.

As we release, we will have the opening we need to embrace new ways that are healthier, more authentic and better for our world.

Go back to old times in your own life and remember how rough times in relationship or family or career came first before you could let go of negative and self defeating patterns.

Then what came next in your life was an improvement, and at the least a better fit for you.

The process of transformation can be so difficult and painful sometimes, but as one connects with the meaning and magic of the Universe and the authenticity of how we were each created, the light shines more brightly.

So do not let yourself get too down or too excited by the election results. Either way we have some great and difficult challenges ahead, as well as deeper connections to the Universe and our true Soul selves.

Don’t let the media’s paradigm cloud your ability to see for your self.  Don’t let the uniform of either party claim your mind and heart and take you away from the Truth and Love that is always accessible to you.

This week brings us to the 2nd quarter Moon in Aquarius on Monday November 7. An intense Sun in Scorpio sextile Pluto will erupt that day also.  Will be an intense time period.

On Election Day the Moon will shift at midday from Aquarius to Pisces  potentially bringing more fogginess and confusion later when voting or getting results.

Mars leaves rule oriented Capricorn and enters indidualistic Aquarius overnight from the 8th to the 9th of November. It will stay in Aquarius until it enters Pisces on December 18.

Mars in Aquarius can be a time to accept your differences and uniqueness, while finding people or groups you feel more aligned with.

As the Moon stays in Pisces on Wednesday the 9th and most of Thursday the 10th, you are best to let go, surrender and be open to deeper healing.  Quiet and meditation are best.

As the Moon goes into Aries on the 11th and 12th, it is time to get back up and get back more fully into life.

Venus leaves uplifted and adventuresome Sagittarius on November 11/12 as it then enters more grounded and stable Capricorn.  Venus represents our heart and its relationshp needs, so it is time to get more serious about relationship, more disciplined and real.  Venus stays in Capricorn until December 8 when it enters Aquarius.

When I next write my forecast we will finally be on the other side of the election.

Many people will then be more than ready to immerse themselves in holiday season.

We will meet again next week,

Leo

Passions of Scorpio and Astrology Forecast October 23-29

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we begin to swim through deeper and darker soul waters- before we will experience an important New Moon next week.

The deeper waters will begin to open up Saturday October 22 at 7:46 PM EDT as the Sun moves into Scorpio.    

On the same day the last quarter Moon in Cancer takes us into finishing up the lunar cycle that began at the Libra New Moon of September 30.

A Libra New Moon is the first new moon of Autumn, and brings us the beauty of a metaphoric sunset.

The first part of Autumn shows us trees with vibrant colors and in many places relatively comfortable weather and temperatures.

Then after the Sun moves into Scorpio we begin to feel more deeply the darker and colder days that lead us into winter.

Scorpio is ruled by the planet Pluto, known mythologically as the guardian of the underworld.

That underworld is sometimes referred to as Hades, a place where we experience more primal passion.  Of course mainstream society and religion have demonized this instinctual place inside each of us.

Libra represents a civil way of relating.   Scorpio takes us into our deeper feelings that are more raw and real.

There is no attempt to refine our expressions with Scorpio, and instead it helps us to express our feelings that are more connected to our deeper truth.

This more primal expression can often cause emotional confrontation with others as we stop holding back what we are really feeling.

Therefore Scorpio can bring up what has been suppressed and even repressed sometimes.

Of course the longer something has been held down, the more powerful is its expression when let loose.

After the Sun goes into Scorpio this year, as the 4th quarter Moon begins, you will tend to go down deeper into your soul.

But the outer expression of the inner turmoil may wait until the Scorpio New Moon.

That Scorpio New Moon is Sunday October 30 at 1:38 PM EDT.

That Scorpio New Moon will soon be followed by Halloween/Samhain and even deeper spiritual realities will then be unearthed.

And not long after that the Election will be held on November 8.

I know it seems as if the worst nastiness has already been spit out; but with Scorpio Sun and especially New Moon in Scorpio on the way, things could get even more ugly.

Please realize that in more healthy people Scorpio represents a compassionate connection to those who suffer, an expression of deeper truth, a wide open third eye chakra, and the transformation process of death and rebirth.

But expressed in a toxic old world filled with toxic people, there is much mean spiritedness, demonizing, and obsession with getting revenge and destroying others.

For most of you this Scorpio time will allow you to express your deeper more instinctual truth and to empower yourself.

It will help you to release stuck emotions and dysfunctional patterns, and to go more deeply through the transformational process.

Perhaps it will get ugly sometimes between people, but that can bring about a catharsis followed by deeper connection between them.

Scorpio time of year can also bring each of us into what inspires our passion, and more deeply into our sexual nature too.

This week there may be a feeling of “coming down” and experiencing deeper truth inside, as we prepare and get ready for an important renewal at the Scorpio New Moon on October 30.

On the 28th/29th Mars will square Uranus, which may give you a “wake-up call” and help you to get out of stuck places and patterns.

In the greater world there could be some real surprise events or previously locked secrets opening up this week.

Soon this very intense and toxic Election season will end.

But then we face a whole new chapter of human life here in the United States, which will affect the whole world.

If Hilary Clinton is elected the system we are used to will continue, though be definitely different from Barack Obama’s government and world.

Scorpio Hilary Clinton will tend to be much more confrontational than Leo President Obama.

Gemini Donald Trump will tend to break down our feelings of well being,  and be much more unpredictable than President Obama.  You never know which Gemini twin will appear.

Either way, in the short term darker days are coming to America.  Nevertheless there is no stopping our transformation out of an old world and paradigm, as we move closer and closer to the Age of Aquarius.

In your own life do not let the world’s negativity affect your consciousness for long, or let it take you off your spiritual path.

If you need to turn off the TV or stop reading the political pages, do it.

Keeping up your meditation, and being with positive and supportive people will help you alot.

Letting go of old patterns of self deprecation or old patterns of self defeat will help.

Letting go of or spending less time with people who invalidate you will help.

Transformation and change have been accelerating over the last couple of years and time seems to be speeding by.

Therefore realize that all your recent challenges or difficulites are meaningful and meant to help you to release that which keeps you stuck and held in old patterns and belief systems.

Everything that has come into your life is preparing you for entering into a life that is more authentically aligned with your True Self; more connected to your deeper soul and its natural spiritual journey; more deeply connected to our sacred Earth and meaningful Universe; more sensitive to the varied ways of life of our human family; more aligned with the deeper Soul Source that connects All; and more awake to the reality that Truth and Love are the twin pillars of strength that govern our Universe.

Till next week,

Leo

Raising Consciousness and Astrology Forecast October 16-22

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 15, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we move closer to Scorpio time of year, intensity and primal passion are building inside our collective human souls.

The presidential election in the USA is already intense yet will get much more so.

Can you believe how low in consciousness Americans are going during this Election Season?

With so many important issues to discuss, the media and candidates are totally obsessed with sexual issues concerning Donald Trump and Bill Clinton.

Though to some extent it is good to address the women’s issues that have come out, and that are important for us as a human family;  this is more about character assassination and mean spirited attacks on one another.

It is no mere coincidence that Wikileaks is now increasing the email dirt against Clinton, while women have now decided a month before election to suddenly come out against Trump.

This is war- not an attempt to look at serious world and American issues.

As we get closer to the Sun moving into Scorpio on October 22 and a Scorpio New Moon on October 30, there are war drums beating that could potentially turn into World War III.

Russia and the USA are seriously challenging one another over Syria; while North Korea keeps testing more nuclear bombs; and forces gather to try to defeat the Islamic State in important Mosul Iraq.

If one tunes into all that or just feels deep inside the collective human unconscious, it is getting more and more apparent that something very big is about to explode in the world.

The only question in my mind is whether this will happen prior to the Election or after it.

Before the Election we have a Full Moon in forceful Aries conjuct Uranus on October 16;   aggressive Mars conjunct guardian of the underworld Pluto on October 19; Mars square Uranus on October 29; and a New Moon in Scorpio on October 30.

Any of these could be a trigger for an important world event, and at the least they suggest darker secrets to be exposed.

The Full Moon has the Sun in Libra opposing Moon conjunct Uranus in Aries at 12:23 AM October 16.

This annual Full Moon usually brings a conflict between desires to make relationship and make peace (Libra) versus a desire to be frank and assertive and thus potentially bring conflict (Aries).  Uranus conjunct the Moon in Aries suggests more weight toward impulsive forceful assertions.

In world events this brings the potential for serious conflict in the world over the next couple of weeks.

In personal lives this could be a wake-up call (Uranus) to transform old relationship patterns and to balance self empowerment (Aries) with a real listening in relationship (Libra).

Some people are very empowered already and need to be more sensitive to others.

Others are usually very accommodating of their mates or friends but tend to be rather small in asserting their own needs.

This Full Moon gives a real opportunity to strike a better balance and to change old relationship patterns that have proven not to work well.

Uranus gives the possibility to wake up outside the usual boxes of thought and to make the changes.

On Ocober 19 Mars conjuncts Pluto.  Conjunct means they share the same space in a 360 degree circle- in this case both at around 15 degrees of Capricorn.

Conjunct means they seek to bring their energies together and in this case in Capricorn. Capricorn wants to build or maintain solid structures or systems. Mars and Pluto together tend to create much potentially explosive power together. They can be ruthless when together.

This can create world conflicts through the ruthless power of the system, the state. or corporate or militay institutions.

In personal lives this can mean a powerful attempt to maintain or create controls.  Be careful this week not to get into power and control battles with others, as they could get nasty.

Instead use this Mars/Pluto aspect to make your self aware of authority or to assert your own authority.

On Saturday October 22 there is a 4th quarter Moon in Cancer as the Sun makes its annual move into Scorpio.

This may bring a feeling of being “brought down”.   Resist the temptation to get depressed, and instead use it to go deeper inside to see what is real and true for you.

Scorpio helps us to get in touch with deeper soul issues, to see inside the veils of secrecy.  It also helps us to find our passion and to honor our more primal instincts.

4th quarter Moons alert us to “wrap things up” and to prepare for the next new moon- this one to be in Scorpio on October 30.

We are in a collective transition into a whole new chapter of our lives.  The Election here in the USA is an obvious symbol that things are changing.

An important way to change is in consciousness.   If we keep trying to create enemies and keep trying to demonize others we stay locked in old consciousness.

Yes we need to create boundaries betwen what we believe and stand for, and what others believe and stand for.  But we do not need to make us the good guys, and them the bad guys.

It is a difference of opinion and lifestyle, not a reason to hate or destroy.

Till next week,

Leo

Election Madness and Astrology Forecast October 9-15.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on October 8, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The power of transformation grows stronger as we get closer the USA Presidential Election

As of today as I write this forecast on October 8, the outward signs all point to a Clinton victory on November 9.  Donald Trump got caught several years ago by a hot mic that recorded him making very disrespectful remarks about women.

Though he has suffered many such turning points in this election process, this one seems to be even worse, especially coming at this time so close to Election Day.

But there is still a full month and 2 debates to go before the Election.

As we wrote back about a year ago, Trump will win if there is some event just prior to the Election that threatens USA security- like a terrorist attack or market crash.

Additionally some huge negative revelation about Hilary Clinton by Wikileaks could have the same effect.

I truly believe there will be more twists and turns prior to Election Day, so no “counting chickens before they are hatched”.

This Election is a huge turning point for America and all the world.  President Obama will be seen as having had a big effect on our country and world, especially so in having the USA be a more equal member of the global community.

But transformation can be a journey of to and fro, in that sometimes there is a powerful feeling of new birth followed by a backtrack to old ways that cannot fully die before being starkly experienced again.

Will we go back toward more dysfunctional and toxic energies before we can embrace the new ways and new consciousness of the Age of Aquarius?

Sometimes a President leads us into a chapter of our lives that takes us backwards and forwards in transformation at the same time.

Nixon represented an America stuck in the past with corruption, bigotry, power abuse, and a desire to keep privilege in the same hands as before.

But that chapter of life that he represented also brought with it great transformational leaps forward as revolutionary energies brought a new world of greater equality for women, blacks, and others.

Nixon resigned from office and the war in Viet Nam ended.

So no matter who wins the Presidential Election this November, the powerful waves of Transformation will bring a tsunami of change.

No one person nor what they represent is bigger than the cycles of the Universe and Nature.

This does not mean it makes no difference who wins or that your vote does not count.

Who becomes president will affect the tone and quality of our human experience

Will transformation happen more gracefully or will it bring us more conflict and difficulty?

Right now we are entering the second quarter Moon of the lunar cycle that began at the Libra New Moon on September 30.

The next New Moon will be on October 30 in Scorpio.  That New Moon will begin the lunar cycle that will carry us through the Election.

On Election Day November 8 we will have just entered the second quarter Moon just as we are doing now.  The second quarter Moon now is in Capricorn and on November 7 it will be in Aquarius.

Second quarter moons challenge the theme created at the new moon, yet they also rev up our life engines another notch- waxing more on the way to the Full Moon- the climax and major turning point of the lunar cycle.

This month’s 2nd quarter Moon in Capricorn on Sunday October 9 challenges the balance and charm of Libra with energies of grounding gravity and seriousness.

On November 7, a day before the Election, the passionate instincts of Scorpio will be challenged by the more dispassionate detached intellect of Aquarius:   Passion or social consciousness?

This week, after the second quarter Moon in Capricorn, we move toward the Full Moon in Aries on October 16.

So this week you can move more forward with the waxing lunar energies. You will have more energy to get things done and be more active.

But where are you in your soul’s transformational journey, as the greater world is going through such major change?

Transformation seeks to bring us to greater authenticity and being true to our soul’s wishes.

But each of us has been conditioned and programmed to be a certain way and to live “normal” lives as society sees it.

But when we wake up with spiritual emergence, we learn we are unfulfilled by what we are doing and what we have chosen.

This can be a most liberating and at the same time most painful turning point in our lives.

We begin to see a new life more aligned with our true self and deeper needs, but we can also see that the process of transformation will require us to let go of security systems we have been accustomed to.

Our changing beliefs and transforming energy fields may then give us the feeling we are not as connected to people we love, or jobs that have given us security, or homes that have given us comfort.

A part of us may want to run away and start anew, while another part of us may want to cling even tighter to what we have known.

Always remember that a greater force is guiding the way and ultimately brings your soul’s true needs to your life.

It may not feel that way at first, as our ego is stubborn about what it wants for us.    But our deeper soul and the soul of the Universe knows what we need to move through karma, or to evolve, or to satisfy our purposes for our lifetime.

Society tells us to get a good paying job, to raise a family, to prepare for retirement, and to wait until you die.  Add some parties, some TV, and some vacations and what else is there?

But our deeper souls want love and truth, a life that is meaningful, self actualization, a sense of purpose, contribution, and connection; and a sense we are continually growing and evolving.

Our life is a sacred soul journey, not a random happening with no real meaning.

Know that this next month on the way to an election, with the major events we are likely to experience between now and then, is leading us through to the next chapter of life in America and on Earth.

And it is leading us ever closer to the Age of Aquarius.

Til 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
