Robots and Zombies, and Astrology Forecast October 21-27

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week’s spotlight is on the Taurus Full Moon, Wednesday October 24 at 12:45 PM EDT.  This is not the typical Taurus Full Moon, as Uranus is closely conjunct the Moon. Additionally Retrograde Venus in Scorpio makes an opposition to that same Moon in Taurus.

The action gets started this week on Tuesday the 23rd when the Sun makes its annual entry into Scorpio. That happens at 7:22 AM EDT.

The relative civility of Sun in Libra gives way to the primal passion of Sun in Scorpio.  Since some of that civility of Libra has been compromised already (witness the Kelly/Bolton profanity laced blow-up in the White House this past week), I can only imagine what this Scorpio time period will be like this month.

Jupiter is still in Scorpio also, where it has been for almost a year now.  It moves into the fire light of Sagittarius on November 8, 2 days after Election Day in the USA.

So this week will likely be quite intense, and with Uranus’ influence “out of the ordinary”,  “out of control”, and for some “out of their minds”.

Intensity may accelerate as soon as Monday morning when the Moon moves into forceful Aries, then increases when the Sun moves into Scorpio on Tuesday.

And by Tuesday we will also be feeling the power of this Full Moon in Taurus.

Uranus in the Full Moon signature shakes up the same-old status quo normality (whatever is left of it).

So expect sudden turns of focus and events.  Taurus is a fixed earth sign, and as such it usually provides stability, comfort, and security.

Yet the Sun conjunct Venus in Scorpio- opposing that steady Moon in Taurus, promises passion and emotional power in contrast.

And Uranus in Taurus is very closely conjunct the Moon in Taurus and opposite the Sun and Venus in Scorpio.

Venus is Retrograde in Scorpio, which suggests relationships will intensify and get shaken up some more.  This is especially true for any relationships that are already troubled, or which have previously pushed important issues “under the rug” of daylight consciousness.

The strength of this Full Moon may push some to the edge.

There is a drama building in regards to refugees coming over the border from Mexico into southern USA.

The aforementioned blowup between Bolton and Kelly was over this issue. Bolton favors the military going down to the Mexican/USA border and stopping anyone from crossing into America. Trump apparently agrees more with this approach.

Kelly on the other hand favors a more tempered approach that is not so hard-line.

This Full Moon in Taurus is made of fixed signs Taurus and Scorpio, which means there is a lot of stubborn digging in with one’s beliefs and needs- not much room for compromise.  It can be like a “tug-of-war” between people.

Taurus can quite stubbornly hold the line and not budge.  But Sun/Venus in Scorpio can push for its agenda in quite intensely powerful ways.

And then Uranus in Taurus can create chaotic circumstances to help break issues and events open, facilitate breakthroughs, and break down anything in its way.

So order versus chaos is a potential theme of this Full Moon in Taurus.

You can expect order to begin to break down, and then as a result some will use more oppressive means so order can be restored.

In your personal life relationships are already in the spotlight with Venus Retrograde until November 16Now with Venus still Retrograde, Uranus in the Full Moon structure will help you to break away from any relationships or relationship patterns you are stuck in.

Uranus is great for helping people think out side boxes of limitation, awakening people to look at things in all new ways.   And in this process, Uranus helps to free or liberate people from situations or mindsets they were previously trapped in.

Uranus was discovered in 1781, during the USA revolution and France’s revolution too.

Uranus is the “ruling” planet of Aquarius, so is the ruling planet of the Age of Aquarius.

Each of us deserves to be free of the cultural programming that starts the day we are born into families and societies that have created paradigms we are all herded into.

Now as we transition out of the Age of Pisces and into the Age of Aquarius, de-programming is essential and there for us when needed.

And with Uranus strong this week, we can each make real progress on our soul’s journey into more free minds and hearts.

To me it is pretty obvious we need a revolution again, out of the corporate dominated, materialistic society we are brought up in.

We are free souls, free spirits, and free minds first and foremost.

Yes we may need structures and rules to live by to keep a somewhat ordered and moral way of living.   But those structures and rules need to be made to lovingly support our free spirits, not to dominate and control them.

Our hearts belong to ourselves and the Universe, not to a nation, not even to a family.

Somehow we have been hypnotized in giving our power away to the state, which is now governed by big money and big military, not truly serving the people.

Yes you may seem to get security benefits from an allegiance to the nation and its rules,  but at what price?  In many cases, slowly but surely heart and soul fall asleep, spirit dies.

Zombies are metaphorically real. Movies and shows about them have been so popular because there is a ring of truth to them.. More and more people are “walking dead”, without knowing it.  They stop thinking for themselves, and instead make knee jerk opinions that are always loyal to the “team” they are on.  An example is liberals versus conservatives.

Politics has become more like a team sport or better yet army war games.

You are different from me and so you are my enemy? People do not even try to understand where someone from the other team are coming from. They have lost the ability to think and feel for themselves.

They have robotic reactions to everything important. No wonder robots are being thought to replace humans in so many ways. Robots and zombies- our future?

Till next week

Bringing in the Eclipses with Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast September 13-19

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 12, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week will bring some big energy shifts as important planetary movements show up.

There is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo Sunday September 13 at 2:41 AM EDT; there is a spiritually oriented opposition between Jupiter and Neptune on September 17; and Mercury goes Retrograde also on September 17 at 2:09 PM EDT.

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo is the first of two eclipses this September.  The second one will be a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries on September 27.

Eclipses generally shake up our usual rhythms and normal way of being, allowing change to come through.   This first eclipse, the Solar Eclipse, is a New Moon with much more power than the usual New Moon as it is an eclipse.   The Moon stands in between the Sun and Earth, effectively blocking out the light from the Earth.

Our ancestors of course would often get really freaked out as day turned to night at the wrong time.   This Solar Eclipse is only partial, and as such the Sun’s rays will not be totally blocked.  And here in the United States it will be nighttime during the eclipse, so it will not  show here.

Since this Eclipse is a New Moon in Virgo,  issues of bringing things into some kind of order or perfection will be swirling around our lives.  Being in dreamy, idealistic places will not last.  Virgo requires down to Earth realism.

Virgo often goes further than mere realism, and shows up as skepticism or just plain disbelief.    It is easy with Virgo to get into a “glass half empty” state of mind, which stops us from expecting too much and then getting disappointed.

So keep your feet on the ground, so to speak, as you go through this eclipse, not allowing yourself to get too swept up or overly excited about anything.  If you do, you will soon get knocked back down to “reality”.

Virgo also brings us to a more humble and simple attitude so we can see up close, without any frills or big egos. From that grounded humble place, we are more able to see what is wrong or what is broken.  And then we are better able to fix or heal what has gone wrong.

In the global world, events will take us out of any fantasies or bubbles we collectively find ourselves in.   We will be brought down to the reality of the economy, for instance.  Already we are seeing the Bears come out to slow down the global stock markets.

This comedown will continue until there is a crash that will precipitate the transformation of our global economic system, so that we can rebuild with the needs of all the people in mind.

Bernie Sanders is touching a nerve here in America, as he preaches about how the few hold so much of the wealth in the world.

How can any economic system be right when some people earn billions every year and others earn minimum wage of 7+ dollars an hour. Or as in other countries in the world sell their daughters or their kidneys so they can feed their families.

The trickle down theory of economics has soundly been shown to not work!  So as the economic structure of the world deteriorates, know that this is just part of a world wide transformation that will make the world more fair and just.

Maybe the stock markets will not go too far down this late summer and autumn, but if not they will soon. Reserve currency changing from the dollar to some other currency is what will likely be a major catalyst for global economic change.

And our Superpower status will change in other ways too.  The balance of power in the world is shifting too, as China, India, Russia, and Iran will continue to get stronger.    Hopefully there does not need to be big battles with China, Iran or Russia in order to usher in this change, but that could very well happen.

And it is more and more likely that Israel will be in the center of the big change coming.

Recent aspects to its natal Mars, the nuclear deal with Iran, and the Blood Moon on September 27 happening on a Jewish holiday promise likely big change for Israel.  Four Blood Moons in a row over the last 18 months have all happened on Jewish holidays.

This will not bring a messiah or herald the end of the world as many fundamentalist religious people are promising, but major conflict concerning Israel is likely this late summer and autumn.

The USA, since the Cardinal Grand Cross in 2014 crossed its natal Sun and Saturn, have had many aspects of Uranus and Pluto to that same natal Sun and Saturn.  And Pluto is still there affecting the well being of the USA.

So the USA can expect major events over the next year or so that will reshape how we think and live our lives.

Refugees from Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, and other places where major military conflicts are driving people from their homes, will continue to flood into Europe and the USA, changing the culture of these countries.

And the Islamic State continues to change boundaries between countries as it has gobbled up land in Iraq, Syria, Libya, and Egypt already.

The world is transforming in big ways and that process will be accelerated now. And mid week, as Mercury goes Retrograde and Jupiter opposes Neptune, there may be greater confusion on the state of the world.

Mercury Retrograde, beginning on the 17th, will shift our mental processes as it always does. It will stay until October 9, at which time it will go back Direct again.

As it is going Retrograde in the middle of two eclipses, we can expect that we will be brought through a time when we will be taken off our usual balance.

The Mercury Retrograde part of that unbalance will mainly affect our mental state.  When Mercury goes Retrograde, our usual mental agendas and paradigms are shifting, as our way of perceiving is in flux.

That is why it is always recommended not to make big decisions or stage big events during Mercury Retrograde.

I know many of you became aware of this need not to jump into things while Venus was Retrograde.  After it went back Direct on September 6, our hearts began to see more clearly what was really going on in certain relationships.

If we had jumped to conclusions or jumped into certain relationships, we would have put ourselves into something unhealthy or into something not really right for us.

Now close behind that Venus Retrograde we have Mercury Retrograde and the eclipses.  So stay on your toes, so to speak, and do not dig in or hold onto anything too tightly.  Over attachment to anything is not a good idea now, as the speed of change is strong now.

And Jupiter opposite Neptune this week will help you to surrender undo need for control.  That aspect is good for spiritual connection, for synchronicity and connection with the Universe.  Magic is alive if you are awake and alive.

But you will need some degree of trust so you can let the process of life unfold as it is meant to unfold.

Keep your mind and heart open to new ways of thinking and seeing.

There is a major portal opening now, bringing a flood of love and truth our way. Let that flood help you to release old ways that are not right for you anymore.

Often we are unaware of how much our society and family have programmed us to see ourselves, others and life in a certain way.    Let those preconceived notions organically leave your mind, so you can open to Truth, which will help you be more free.

Be open now to new truths, which are not sitting in Galaxies beyond our comprehension, but are sitting right before our eyes here up close in reality.

Did you ever walk into a room that you have walked through many times before, and all of a sudden see a picture or some object you thought you had never seen before? Then someone tells you it had always been there. You just had not put your attention there before.  You see it now because you are ready to see it.

That is how some truths can come to you now, right before your eyes now open to see.

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.

Till next week,

Leo

Venus Direct and Astrology Forecast September 6-12

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The winds and tides of our consciousness and lives begin to shift this week.   These shifts will morph into a huge portal of change and transformation for later September and beyond.

The first winds will bring Venus going back Direct on Sunday September 6 at 4:29 AM EDT.  Venus has been Retrograde since July 25, and many relationship lives have gone through much turmoil and upheaval since then.

While Mercury is Retrograde we cannot trust our minds to operate as they usually do, and when Venus is Retrograde we cannot trust our hearts to operate as they usually do.

That is why it is advised during Venus Retrograde to not jump to any relationship conclusions as normal heart to heart communication is “tainted” by Venus Retrograde.  And the usual insight our hearts give us is clouded by Venus Retrograde.

Venus Retrograde is needed because our heart and relationship lives often get stale or off course, and it becomes imperative that there is a shakeup to get us to wake up.

But as we wake up more fully as Venus goes Direct now, we may still be somewhat foggy.  So we wait for Venus to have been direct for awhile before we begin to see into our hearts more clearly again.  And it usually takes another few weeks before all is back into some kind of order again.  Venus actually goes full circle on October 8, when it goes back to exactly where it started its retrograde journey.  That does not mean you necessarily need to wait that long to get heart clarity and to move you relationships forward, but full completion of the Venus cycle will not completed till then.

So feel the shift on September 6, but be careful to wait for the dust to clear from your storm traumatized heart before you are fully certain of anything.

And as we slowly settle back into our normal heart rhythms again, we will be also experiencing the downward movement of the last quarter of the lunar cycle, a cycle which began at the New Moon in Leo on August 15.

It is time this week to come down into a more humble place (especially so as we are in Sun in Virgo time).  From that more simple and grounded place, we begin to develop more order and to make more sense of what our recent soul’s journey has been about.

What relationship lessons have we been learning?  What is our heart trying to tell us?   What is the realistic state of our relationship?  What needs to be released from our heart’s past?  Who has really cared for you?  Who has really hardly seen you at all?

Now this week, no matter what the lessons or insight have been, it is time to begin to move forward, to leave the nightmare, to shake off the hurt, and to make strong intention to change the unhealthy relationship patterns and to attract more resonant people into your life.

As Venus slowly moves your heart issues forward this week, and as the Moon goes darker everyday into your soul’s quiet recesses; you are preparing for the first eclipse this Eclipse Season.

That will happen on September 12/13. It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo at 2:41 AM EDT on the 13th.

A big shift bringing big changes will be ignited at that Solar Eclipse. A portal of new transformational energies will begin to crack open then.

As it is a Virgo Solar Eclipse New Moon, the Universe will be bringing us energies which will help us to be more real,  more humble and of service to others.  We will desire to find more order to our lives and our own minds.

Remember that a Solar Eclipse is a New Moon on steroids.  So as you are energetically pushed to move forward, be careful of the downsides of Virgo.  Be careful not to get into obsessions or overly critical opinions, especially of yourself.   Also watch out to not be so materially and physically oriented as to lose the flow of soul inside you.

In the greater world, major events are getting ready to unfold.  World dominoes will begin to fall, affecting one place after another.

The world economic structure is beginning to come undone and will continue to do so. It is possible that life support systems will delay the inevitable for a while longer, but not much longer.

Boundaries are being breached as can be seen in an influx of refugees into Europe and elsewhere. The wars in Iraq and Syria and Afghanistan have made for more homeless people trying to find a safe place to live.

Our whole world is in the process of being transformed now, with power structures changing too and soon currency issues will change too as there will be strong attempts to shift away from the dollar.

China, India, Brazil, Iran, and Russia are empowering themselves while America wastes its time listening to and giving so much attention to Donald Trump.

The Middle East is on the verge of major war now as the Iran nuclear deal is galvanizing the positions of so many countries, especially Israel.

Israel has a Mars Return on September 22, 5 days before the powerful Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on September 27.  Watch for what Israel does around that time.

After that second eclipse, much will be energized and opened up as the transformational portal will be more fully activated. Energies of truth and love will be bursting at the seams to break through into our minds and hearts and world.

Fear and hatred and cynicism will be blocks in the system that will collide with the new streams of love and truth. Let them go.

Old traumas which breed lack of trust and lack of faith and low self esteem will be bursting open to be better understood and healed.  That healing will open our hearts and minds to the love and truth wanting to enter our consciousness.

Use this coming week, before the first eclipse on September 12/13, to find some resolution and clarity, some insight and direction, some inner peace.

Put into order what needs to be ordered, and most importantly be as humble and down to Earth as possible.

What is inflated will be deflated now, so we can do what is needed to heal our ourselves, our Earth and its creatures, and our human family.

“It is not about me” is a good mantra to put on your refrigerator and in your meditations now.   

Being with what that means- in your deeper soul now- will provide you with some foundation of strength for the storms ahead.

Till next week,

Leo
