Of the People, by the People and Astrology Forecast May 28-June 3

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 27, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Things are speeding up and will soon be heating up, figuratively and literally.   The New Moon in Gemini last week signified faster movement forward, especially in contrast to the Taurus cycle which has passed.

Some of you had a difficult day on or around that new moon, as Venus squared Pluto and brought up relationship issues, or living situations that need to be addressed, changed, and moved beyond.

This finishes up what was left of the Venus Retrograde passage that ended mid April when it went back Direct.  Though the Venus aspect last week may have been quite difficult and intense, this week you should be more clear about the status of any important relationships, or real estate and money issues.  For women issues around personal empowerment may have been challenged.  Hopefully you are stronger now and will stand your ground with what you know is right.

Is there new life in a relationship now, or is it time to begin saying goodbye? Is there new life to where you live, or is it time to find a new place? Have you found a way to better handle money and security issues?

In the greater world, everything is getting more messed up.

The Trump presidency is in full swing now, and unless there is a major move toward impeachment soon, his ways will reach full stride soon.

His foreign policies, if we can call them that, are bringing us to a very dangerous position.  North Korea and Iran are in the administration’s crosshairs, and it is building a coalition that will oppose those states as well as Russia and maybe China.

Though France and Iran have chosen more moderate governments lately and put pause to the trend toward nationalism, in the USA the Trump administration is still moving toward nationalism and fascism.  When big security issues come our way, that is when his administration will get more militaristic and dominating of individual freedoms and rights.

The challenge now is for “we the people” to speak loud and clear that this country and world belong to us.

This is the nature of an Age of Aquarius, just as was initiated at the American revolution, at the time when the Aquarian planet Uranus was discovered- 1781.

“Of the people, by the people and for the people”- liberty, equality, and diversity within unity.

The USA natal Moon in Aquarius show us those values.  But now they are for our whole world not just America.

Most especially in August, when the eclipses will be triggering the USA natal Moon in Aquarius, we will need to make our presence strong.

Trump’s Mars and rising sign in Leo will also be triggered then, and those placements are opposed to the USA Moon in Aquarius.

So his Leo stance of narcissistic and individual dominance being more important than all else will be openly opposed to those Aquarian values.

This is the potential negative expression of Leo, not its normal and healthy shining of creative light to all around it.

So moves he makes in and around August will fuel the issue of dominance by authority versus rule by the people.

Interestingly, it is how it all came to be after 1776.  Out with the King.  Bring in new democratic values to replace rule by authority.

Remember that the more chaotic events become, the more leverage “rule by authority” has with the average person. So expect this summer to bring very volatile energies and events, so we can transform old attitudes more consistent with an old age.

This week we are still on our way up, with a waxing Moon moving toward a Full Moon, which will be on June 9, which will be an important turning point day this month.

Mars will oppose Saturn on Sunday/Monday, which gives us a stop or slow down message.

Then on Tuesday/Wednesday Mars sextiles Uranus, which gives us a break out and break free message.  So this week gives us conflicting messages.

Keep things stable or break out and break free?

Venus conjuncts Uranus while the Sun trines Jupiter next Saturday June 3.  So later in the week the messages are more clear.

It is time to bring more energy and change into life, to get out of ruts and inner prisons in our minds.

Especially with what is coming soon, it important we each work on our consciousness and step up our efforts for healing and transformation.

More and more people are being shaken out of their slumber.  The way the world and the USA have been moving lately is a trigger for new wake up calls.

We are not poor victims to the powers that be.

That is not what the colonists felt when they started the American Revolution.

It is not what the French people felt when they overthrew the autocratic royalty in France during the French revolotion in the late 18th Century.

This is not what the Russian people felt when they overcame the Czars in Russia and created the Russian Revolution in 1917/18.

It is not what the Indian people felt when they stood up to Britain behind Mahatma Ghandi in 1930.

It is not what our black brothers and sisters felt when they stood up to the authorities, especially in the South, with Martin Luther King in the ’50s.

It is not what the South Africans felt when they confronted their government authorities along with Nelson Mandela in the ’90s.

This overthrowing of dominating royalty or dictators or restrictive governments has been a trend over the last few centuries.

Those events were the changing winds blowing in for an Age of Aquarius.

More of those liberating events will need to erupt in order for us to manifest more solidly the New Age.

First work on your consciousness and release the programming of your minds and hearts.   Our fears are what cause us to be controlled. Our believing the lies are what cause us to be controlled.

Love and Truth set us Free

Till next week

Full Moon in Scorpio and Astrology Forecast May 7-13

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 6, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The relational planets Mercury and Venus will be rather comfortably back Direct this week.   Relational issues should be better defined, and direction easier to discern.

I know that while Mercury was changing directions last week back from Retrograde to Direct, for some that meant some confusion or craziness.  Mercury is known as a trickster planet, and it can be at its trickiest when changing directions.

We are certainly in a whole New Chapter of life, the election of Donald Trump making that fact more obvious.

So many people are divided from one another, not seeing the connections very easily anymore.  Yet at the same time, the connections are there if you are in the proper head and heart place inside your self.  In fact energies that bring everything together are stronger than ever.

At the same time, a large group of people are taking walled-in sides against one another, see others as foes or enemies, or at least see others as “those people”:  democrats versus republicans; America versus North Korea or Russia or Iran; women versus men; Judeo-Chrisians versus Muslims; whites versus blacks; hetero versus homosexual, etc.

Perhaps we should have night fight day or cold fight hot?  If you look at a ying/yan symbol you will see opposites of black and white joined together in a circle.

This is how it is meant to be.  Opposites are part of the same whole.  There was a time when democrats fought republicans for what they each thought was right and best for the country.

But they still knew they were both together as Americans wanting to do what is best for the community.

Now these groups no longer seem connected in the circle.  They represent two cultures at war with one another, and as a result very little gets accomplished for the best of the people of this country and world.

The Civil War was a time when two very different American cultures went to war with one another, as there was no connecting bridge between them.

And so much in America and in the greater world is that same way now.  So much seems to be falling apart as a result.

Yet ironically the spiritual movement toward connection of all is at its strongest.  More and more people are waking up to the knowing of that circle that connects us all.

Still there are wide differences of opinion and ways of life, but the knowing we are nevertheless joined as one whole family is keeping the circle from splitting apart.

Empathy is the most important quality needed to keep the circle intact.  When we only focus on ourselves, without also feeling where someone else is at, we break the circle.

That does not mean you give your self away or make your needs less importnant than someone else.

Instead you keep your individual integrity while realizing someone else is different and needs different things. Even if you cannot live with a person anymore, you still recognize they are not wrong- just different.

If we keep seeing everything from a winner/loser or superior/inferior or ultimately judgmental view, we break that circle and create a drama that makes everyone miserable.

Sports is a good outlet for winner/loser contests and dramas, but everyday relationships are a really bad way to have competitions or wars.

It is true that sometimes Scorpio or Aries energies are prone to go there, but it does not have to become a “fight to the death” battle between people.  Hash it out intensely, but come back to the circle of connection at least inside your self.

At the same time, don’t let that empathic connection to that other person change your resolve for independence or empowerment.

Every important realtionship in our lives came to us for a meaningful reason.  When we have to let each other go, that original meaning is a connecting thread between you- even after you part.

That sense of meaning brings the circle together.

This week there is a Full Moon in Taurus/Scorpio on Wednesday May 10 at 5:42 PM EDT.

This annual full moon is called the Wesak Full Moon.  Some say it reflects when the Buddha was born.

At its best the Sun in Taurus represents solid, secure, comfortable calm.  At its best the Moon in Scorpio represents depth of feeling, insightfulness and passion.

At its worst Taurus represents stubborn holding on, greed, and lack of passion; while Scorpio at its worst represents rage, insane jealousy, and vindictiveness.

Inside yourself this Full Moon will best serve you if you are able to find a balance between passion and calm,  between powerful emotion and rock solid groundedness.

This full moon sometimes brings with it tugs of war between people, and sometimes it brings up issues of money or other resources.

This full moon has some potential also to shake things up as Mercury conjuncts Uranus in Aries and the Sun trines Pluto the day before.

This full moon also has the potential to bring some magic and otherworldly elements as Mars squares Neptune the day after the full moon.  Life may also feel out of control or confusing the few days surrounding these events.

On Friday May 12 Mars trines Jupiter.  This is a good time to get new ideas, to be inspired, to talk things out.

There may also be a tendency to talk alot or take in an overwhelming amount of information.

Let spirit take you but do your best not to leap before you look.

Remember again that our individual lives want to change and transform, as our global world is transforming also.

Stay aware of what needs to be released in the process of change, and what you need to hold onto, if you can, for the sake of some stability.

Winds of change will pick up appreciably this summer, so allow yourself some flexibility so the Universe can more gracefully move through you in ways that are needed.

Mercury Direct and Astrology Forecast April 30- May 6

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

One or the other of the two main relationship and communication planets have been retrograde since March 4.   This week when Mercury goes back Direct again, both will be back in their usual forward motion.

Mercury is a planet of mind and communication.  As many of you have experienced, when Mercury is retrograde we may readjust our thinking and perceptions, rethink the directions in life we have chosen, and rewind to previous times in our life.

Together, Venus and Mercury have been readjusting our relationships, making us more aware of what we say and how we say it, and perhaps even shifting our attitudes and beliefs around money and material resources.

Now with both of them back Direct, there is the beginning of gaining more clarity and direction in our thinking and with our relationships.

Some of you during this Retrograde period have been re-evaluating your relationships and chronic patterns in your relationships.  Some of you have experienced a crisis that has forced you to make serious changes in your relationships or relationship patterns.

This is not only about romantic relationships but also about platonic friendships, family and work relationships.

Do you tend to give your power away?  Are you now more commited to speaking your truth and not sacrificing and giving too much.

Relationships are meant to be give and take, with both people giving and receiving from one another.  If you are doing much more giving than receiving, it is like breathing out and not breathing in, metaphorically speaking.

These patterns of giving more than receiving can be seen in a natal chart, yet also are “inherited” from family conditioning,  programming into women from society,  and acting out of guilt from religion.

The more a person is centered in their heart while in relationship balance with their mind, the better able they are to have healthy give and take relationships.

Now with both Mercury and Venus back Direct, we can move forward with enough knowledge and information to know what to do with our relationships.

The actual day of Mercury Direct is Wednesday May 3 at 12:33 PM EDT.   It will then slowly get back to speed, so for a week or so after it goes back Direct clarity and direction will be unfolding.   You will be better at making decisions, and better prepared for initiating new projects.

Also this week on Monday May 1 there is Beltane, an ancient celebration of relationship, fertility, and relationship balance.   Moving around a maypole is an old tradition of Beltane.

Interestingly, it synchronizes this year with the recently Direct motion of Venus and Mercury now going back Direct.

Relationships on the global stage are shifting and changing also.  The USA connections with North Korea, China, Russia, and the Middle East are in the process of big change.

The way it will now shake out is very important to world peace or war.

People often ask how much influence our individual and collective intention and prayer have on world affairs.

There is a thin line between what is meant to be and what we can create through our human consciousness and actions. This is what co-creation is all about.

It is worth our time and effort to focus our loving energies toward world affairs.  Even if we are not able to shift the direction the world is moving toward, putting more love in the world will always work toward making our human experience better and better.

No matter what happens, we are in the process of deep transformation of our consciousness and lives on the way to an Age of Aquarius.

The transition time between an Age of Pisces and an Age of Aquarius is powerful.  Yes there are birth pains that will show through difficult world events and challenging personal life events, but there will also be more and more awakenings, more portals opening for greater love and truth, and more magic and synchronicity.

There is a pull toward staying in old consciousness that will be helped if you give into fear or rage.  There is also more inspiration to move into new consciousness as you trust in love balanced with truth, trust the Universe, and trust in the wisdom of your own soul and body.

The movement toward the Age of Aquarius is getting stronger and stronger, even as Rome is burning, so to speak.

I believe that December 2020 will be an important marker for the official dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

In the meantime, we will be experiencing a most intense and tumultuous part of the transition between ages.

This August 2017 will bring a major turning point in our collective Soul’s journey into the New Age.

There will then be two eclipses, the second one most important and powerful.  It is a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo, covering the whole of the United States. It triggers planets in the natal charts of Donald Trump, the USA, Syria, Israel, and North Korea.

I am sure we will all be challenged to stay on our paths toward more love and truth in our lives.  The pull toward fear and old attitudes and beliefs will be strong.   So we will need to keep our focus, our center, and our alignment with the Universe.

The current lunar cycle, begun at the New Moon in Taurus, is still waxing toward a Full Moon, which will be on May 10 in Scorpio.

So now, especially after Mercury goes Direct on May 3, we are getting more clear in our minds and hearts and directed to moving forward with our lives.

Be attentive to the fact that often the time surrounding Mercury changing directions can feel strange while at the same time feeling a sense of relief.

Till next week,

Leo

Love and Truth and Astrology Forecast April 23- 29

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 22, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving through the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the Aries New Moon on March 27.

Important events that could lead to more explosive events erupted during this Aries lunar cycle.

Russia, Iran, North Korea, United States, Syria, and Israel are all very triggered by these recent events.  Actually the whole world may be affected ultimately by these events.

So during the 4th quarter we review what has happened during the Aries lunar cycle, and get ready for new beginnings at the New Moon in Taurus this Wednesday April 26.

What has opened up for you personally since March 27?   What are you needing to move into more fully, or move on from? What still needs to be healed and transformed?

Mercury is still Retrograde and Venus was Retrograde during much of this lunar cycle, till April 15 when Venus went back Direct.

What has been happening in your important relationships?  Have you been taken back to old patterns you thought you had moved beyond.

Do you now have more clarity about those relationships?

If not keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde until May 3, when it goes back Direct. Total clarity may have to wait until then or more likely a week or so after it goes back direct.

Big decisions that will importantly affect your life would be better off waiting until then.

More pull to “how it used to be” may continue for you.  Do your best to resist feeling your old reality is your reality again.

You may be revisiting old places in your Old Chapter of life, so you can better know what your New Chapter needs are.

There is a process of integration of the past going on, so you do not forget “where you came from”.

There will be a feeling of moving forward more at the New Moon in Taurus on April 26 at 8:16 AM EDT.

Taurus takes in, manifests in reality, and then holds onto tightly.

So whatever was begun during the Aries lunar cycle will tend to take hold after the Taurus New Moon.   If that which began in the Aries cycle has no real “life” to it, it will not take hold.  It will not be made manifest.

Looking at the recent world events, look closely at what has unfolded from them, especially after the New Moon on the 26, and even more so after Mercury goes Direct on May 3.

Are those events merely the past coming back for a look-see again, or are those events more indicative of what is truly brewing in our world.

Taurus is fixed Earth and when it grabs something it does not let go.

So if you have started something recently, if it is aligned and alive, the Taurus New Moon will tend to make it more real and grounded.

Taurus likes to make things more secure and comfortable.  That is why money and other resources like real estate are under the umbrella of Taurus.

Taurus is the Earth and our earthly bodies.   It wants to let us know that our bodies can be a pleasurable experience, and it does so in part by enlivening our senses.

Tasty and healthy food therefore is important for Taurus as a result.

During Taurus time we also can usually calm down from the fiery energy of Aries. Everything seeks to slow down and relax.   But you may then feel rather bored if you seek a lot of passion and intensity.

Those recent world events that brought conflict will now either calm down appreciably or be made more real and manifest.

This summer, especially near the August Eclipses, we will experience the fallout from some of the recent events.

We are truly in a new zone now and sometimes you will feel confused or “out of sorts” and unbalanced.

Your body may go through some temporary shifts too,  shifts that feel like you might be sick or that something might be wrong with you.

Let whatever it is play out to see if it stays or not. In most cases it will be temporary, as we are all being shifted in our minds, souls, and bodies by new energies.

Stay open and present as much as you can now.  Realize old wounds and traumas may tend to be triggered, so please do your best to not be carried away by overreacting.

These new energies want to move into you, and when they confront the blocks in your system, the ones that developed from your old wounds and traumas, they may trigger old reactions.

Remember that these old traumas can be transformed.  You can then see that what has happened to you in the past can be a motivation to empower yourself, to improve yourself, and to have empathy for others who have suffered.

You may have been victimized but you are not a victim.  Victim consciousness disempowers people and is part of the old age, not the new age.

Everything that has happened in your life is meaningful and meant to help you to transform and evolve, and to potentially assist others who have been suffering.

The more explosive world events that are coming are part of the process too, as Nature has earthquakes and tornadoes and tsunamis.

Life will go on, and an Age of Aquarius in dawning.  The transition will be better if each of us stays aligned and lives their life according to the nature of the Universe.

Love and Truth are the pillars that hold up the divine realms of the Universe.  Allowing them to be an integral part of our Earthly life paradigm and the Age of Aquarius is quite important now and going forward.

Each of us can make strong intention to let those values be the engine of our life, not materialism, greed, or power.

Open Portals of Change, and Astrology Forecast April 9-15.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 8, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have arrived into the New Chapter.   We let you know a few weeks ago that the Aries New Moon on March 27 was the window out into this new chapter, and that big world events would soon follow.

So this last week America bombed Syria, and as usual found a “good” reason to do so: chemical weapons used on innocent Syrian people.  Yet the week before this atrocity, the USA dropped bombs in Iraq that killed many innocent people too. Now that has been effectively put aside in most minds through media silence.

Throughout history, perpetrators most always have found a “good reason” to kill or otherwise harm people.

Hitler believed he was creating a superior race that would bring progress to the world.

Bush II believed that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction- which did not exist.

Trust me on this-  Killing people in other parts of the world, when one is not really having to defend their country from attackers, has more ulterior motives behind it.

This bombing was a power play intended to show the world, most especially North Korea, Iran, Russia, and China, that the USA is back as the baddest guy in the neighborhood (“Make America Great Again”). It also takes people away from believing Trump and Putin are in a bromance.

Regardless of the reasons, this is the event that takes us into this new chapter, as it will be the event that begins to unhinge Pandora’s lid to its box.

Many events that will shake up the world in many ways will result from this event.

As old age and horrible as this bombing is, now is also a time of opening up the portals to higher consciousness and new ways.

We are waking up now out of our “comfort” zones, seeing more clearly, and getting activated to get moving and get doing.

If you focus on what is opening up for you and us collectively, and not on the world dramas, you will be OK.

Fear, hatreds, and most importantly programmed ways to think and feel, will hold you back and keep you stuck in old ways and old patterns.

There are two ways to go in this new chapter now.  You can get all wrapped up in the world dramas, taking sides, getting into winner versus loser consciousness; or you let the new energies and frequencies take you further into Love and Truth consciousness, and the ways of the Age of Aquarius.

There is a trust and faith necessary to do that:  trust and faith in the Universe, your better self, and your fellow soul traveller.

I know some of you will want to get involved in that old world for perhaps idealistic and altruistic reasons of your own.

Please do not do so if you are prone to losing your detachment, getting overly emotionally involved, feeling much fear or hatred, or getting taken off your new world path and/or your spiritual path.

It is important now to keep the focus on what is truly important.  Continuing our journey of transformation out of old consciousness and old ways, and creating and embracing new consciousness and new ways, is very important now.

Opening your mind and heart to the new light wanting to stream in is an important part of the journey now.

Love and Truth are what are wanting to flower in each of us.  The old energies, patterns, programs, beliefs, paradigms are ready to be released- one step at a time.

As we clear those blocks, there is more room in our inner channels and portals for the new energies to move through.

All we have been taught by society is open for questioning now.  Where we came from and where we are going is open for discussion.

We once believed the world was flat and then believed it was round.  And that level of new discovery is ready for us again.  And many of these new vistas sit inside us as new frequencies, new energetics, new soul pathways.

This week April 8-15, we encounter some major shifts: Mercury Retrograde, Venus Direct, and Full Moon in Libra.

Mercury goes Retrograde on Sunday April 9 at 7:14 PM EDT.  Venus will still be Retrgrade then.  

So from April 9- April 15 both planets will be retrograde.  On April 15 Venus goes direct, at which time only Mercury will be retrograde- until May 3 when it goes back direct again.

So this week ahead may get really unclear at times, especially around relating and relationships, and linear thinking.

You may tend to go back and forth on issues, or want to jump to conclusions too fast.

Do your best to wait and let issues brew longer if possible.  After April 15, when Venus goes Direct, relationship issues and security/home issues will begin to clear up.

But with Mercury still Retrograde, not all issues in all ways will be clear yet.  Be patient and trusting of the process.  Linear bottom line thinking is not as useful during Mercury Retrograde.

And as Venus Retrograde brought a rewind and reflection on relationships and people from the past, Mercury Retrograde also can create dreams, thoughts and in the flesh people coming back from the past.

So you can see the potential pattern:  Moving forward into new worlds and consciousness, while also reflecting on the past.

What from your past and present needs to be released?   What can you take with you on your soul’s journey going forward now?  Let the process unfold to show you the way.

Please do not overthink or try to figure it all out in your head during the retrograde time period.  Be satisfied with processing and going deeper for more insights.

That will help you to know what is best, not just in your head, but also in your heart and soul.

To further shift the energies and view this week, there is a Full Moon in Aries/Libra on April 10/11 at 2:08 AM EDT on the 11th.

Uranus in Aries will be strong in this Full Moon, so there may be some important awakenings that occur this week, shifting us outside of old boxes that have kept us locked up in self defeating thoughts and beliefs. Pluto in Capricorn will also be strong in this Full Moon.  So powerful transformational events and emotions may also erupt this week.

With the Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra in this Full Moon, we are trying to balance being true to ourselves and what we believe in on the one hand; while on the other hand truly listening and caring what is important to someone else.

Finding one’s personal empowerment and independence within a relationship is also a potential issue to be addressed this week.

We are filling up our cups of life now with more energy and action. The greater world is also getting more activated with events and movements.

We are ready for this now.

I will be doing a video conversation with David Lonebear Sanipass on the 15th at 2:43 PM, which David says is a time of cosmic importance. And of course also on the 15th Venus goes Direct.  David and I will be discussing the big shifts in the world and in our personal lives at this powerful time to be alive.  We will make that video available to others soon after.

till next week,

Leo

Here We Go and Astrology Forecast January.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 21, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The early part of this week is mostly about processing what has been happening in our personal lives and in the greater world.   Mercury is now firmly direct and back to its normal speed; and the Moon is in its 4th and last quarter phase of its cycle.

Where are we?  What has been happening to us and our world? The early part of this week will allow us to reflect on all this.

In the greater world we can now stop and feel the reality of a Trump administration and what it means for our world and lives.  The Women’s March right after Trump’s inaugration tells us more about the new reality we are all in now.

We had been experiencing a relatively graceful time period for the last 8 years, during President Obama’s presidential years.

There were many changes, like more recognition and honoring of the LGBT community; a big improvement economically from the housing and employment crashes right before he was elected;  the nuclear deal with Iran; and Obamacare.

There was also great turmoil in the rise of Islamic State; the Arab Spring; Occupy Wall Street; Ferguson Missouri and other examples of police abuse of African Americans; the rise of Russia again; continued economic disparity between rich and all others; terror attacks in America and western civilization, etc.

But most of the time there was little drama or anger or judgmentalness from the top of the Obama Administration.

Some would say there was not enough action taken on important matters like Syria, but nevertheless there was a sense that things would not fall apart and that the “system” would stay intact and functioning.

But now it is time for bigger transformational change, for greater conflict, for a sense that the old world is truly falling apart and a new alternative world being built.

You can see this ripeness for great transformational change by looking more deeply at the Trump administration.

On the one hand he has chosen those who are quite obviously guardians of the Old World like military generals, billionaires, oil barons,  ex Goldman-Sachs executives, etc.

On the other hand he does not fit the mold of traditional USA presidents at all; he shows obvious signs of impulsiveness which could cause events that really shake up our world;  he does not comply with traditional rituals and courtesies that have kept the Old World with structure; he is committed to doing business HIS WAY to a fault; he makes relationship with those who have traditionally been considered enemies; he is looking to tear down programs like Obamacare and the Iran deal; and he is planning on moving the USA Israel center to Jerusalem which would cause great turmoil and conflict in the Middle East.

So you can see some of what is coming: a desire to keep the Old World stronger than ever before- while tearing it down at the same time.

His Gemini twin nature is quite capable of moving in these opposite directions at the same time, in a perverse way aligned with the transformational movement of the Universe.

And “we the people” of this land and western civilization in general are facing a huge transformational change in our world and in our personal lives in the years ahead of us.

We are letting go of that which represents our personal “Old World” while letting in the light of our personal “New World”.

Relationships, homes, careers, and especially belief sytems that are connected to the old world paradigm will be released.

The Universe and our deeper Souls will be unfolding to us our new lives, our new beliefs and atttitudes aligned with the New World we have entered.

And of course in the bigger picture we are being transformed to align with the Age of Aquarius and its paradigm for our evolution.

This New Chapter of our lives, lasting the next few years, will not be as graceful as the last 8 years have been.

The Election between Trump and Clinton showed us the immense split in our country. It showed nastiness and character assassination; narcissism that precludes the ability to empathize with others and other ways of being; and a fight or competition that is ruthless and without true consideration for the welfare of the community.

We are at the same time being awakened to beliefs and attitudes that will help each of us to evolve into a Truth and Love, Diversity within Unity world, where win/win is the result intended in all conflicts and competitions.

The self actualization into our authentic selves will be combined with our intentions to be in meaningful relationship with others; and to contribute to our human community while healing our Earth and making greater connection to the Universe.

These are powerful times now, and we must be ready.

This week we concentrate on reflecting and processing until Friday January 27 at 7:07 PM EST.

That is the time of the New Moon in Aquarius, which also is the time of the beginning of the Chinese New Year of the Rooster.

Early on the next day the 28th, action oriented Mars moves out of go-with-the-flow Pisces and enters forceful and active Aries.

So late this week we get the “go sign” and start the New Era.  That New Moon in Aquarius will also begin the Eclipse Season, one that will show us a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on February 10; then a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

So the go sign is strong and changes will happen fast especially in the world at large.   President Trump will be making decisions that try to undo some of the accomplishments of the last 8 years and before.

People will begin to forcefully oppose these decisions and movements at the same time.

Transformational Change is breaking open.

On a personal level the Aquarius New Moon on the 27th,  that opens the portals for the Eclipse Season, shows us Aquarian traits.

So we will be prompted to find and honor our distinctive and individualized self, even if we feel we are different or weird.

And at the same time we will have doors opened for finding our soul families.    Birds of a Feather want to flock together now.

Finding your individual truth will help you to find your soul groups.

If you continue to be what others expect or want from you, or what you think you should be; then you will not know where you truly belong. But now you have the opportunity to begin to change that old way.

So get ready to begin the New Chapter adventure.  It is Time.

Till next week,

Leo

USA Transformation and Astrology Forecast December 11-17

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 10, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The last full moon of 2016 shows itself this week.   It is a Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini on Tuesday December 13 at 7:06 PM EST.

This makes a close conjunction with the Full Moon that happened on the day of Donald Trump’s birth.   But the Sun and Moon were turned around into opposite signs.

All Full Moons have the Sun and Moon opposite one another.  So for this Full Moon the Sun is in Sagittarius and the Moon is in Gemini.

At Donald Trump’s Full Moon birth the Sun was in Gemini and the Moon opposite in Sagittarius at approximately the same degrees as the one this week.

One of the reasons I predicted Trump’s nomination and subsequent election for president is because this natal Full Moon formation of his is very closely conjunct the USA Mars in Gemini from its natal chart of July 4 1776.

It is not merely coincidental that he has been choosing ex generals to his cabinet and to be his close advisors.  There are 3 already and probably more to come.  General David Petraeus is being considered for Secretary of State.

Look at how Donald Trump is so in favor of military and police.  These two powerful USA institutions will gain even more power and influence in the Donald Trump administration.

We must as citizens of the USA be very vigilant of domination by military and police now.

Remember that starting in April of 2014, deep core transformation of the USA began, as there was a Cardinal Grand Cross formation that made very close aspect to the USA natal Sun at 13+ degrees of Cancer.  There were two eclipses that month also.

In 2014 the Islamic State became a world threat, Russia took over Crimea in Ukraine, and there was a killing of a young black man by police in Ferguson Missouri.

All three of those issues began then and are still in the spotlight of  concern.  Each of those events represents deeper issues that are a part of USA transformation now.

The Uranus/Pluto square had an exact meeting in April 2014, which we have talked about at length as being the first major meeting of those two planets since their conjunction in the mid ’60s triggered the revolutionary movement of the ’60s and ’70s.

Uranus square Pluto had exact meetings from 2012-2015, triggering the transformation of the USA by aspecting its natal Sun and Saturn.

Yet the square is still in effect and influential now through 2017. Jupiter in Libra is forming with that square to make a Cardinal T-square formation that triggers the Cardinal Grand Cross from 2014.

For much of 2017 Jupiter will continue to activate a Cardinal T-square with Uranus and Pluto, promising a most powerful transformational year ahead.

Also this coming year Uranus and Jupiter will make aspect to the USA natal Pluto in Capricorn in the 2nd house.   So there will be great transformation of the USA economy and USA institutions that provide security.

The climax of this transformation of USA Pluto will come in the early 2020s when Saturn conjuncts USA natal Pluto, and there will also be a Pluto Return to its original USA natal placement.  It will be the first ever Pluto Return for the USA.

We can expect security, resources, and the security and economic institutions in the USA to break down and transform into new structures during the next 4-5 years.

The dismantling and transformation of the USA Military/Industrial complex will happen and last into the 2020’s- creating a vast opening for the Age of Aquarius to pour through.

Remember that President Eisenhower warned as he left office that that USA complex would continue to grow and take away our liberties.

We need to return to our core root principles and values in order to have a solid foundation for our place in the Age of Aquarius.   Military/Corporate/Economic control of our lives must end for this to happen .

Donald Trump will attempt to strengthen that Complex while at the same time helping to undo its controls. His Gemini twins work with both sides of that issue.

We will likely have attempts to dominate with order and to conserve the old “system”- while at the same time experiencing increasing chaos and anarchy to challenge that old system. Dominating Order seeks to keep the status quo, while free spirited chaos creates the atmosphere for change.

The next 4-5 years will be quite powerful here in the USA and in western civilization. There is a new world order emerging to form into the Diversity in Unity of the Age of Aquarius.

In the USA the control of our lives by the old paradigm will die with the Trump presidency.

The movement is toward the old minorties becoming the majority and creating true diversity in the USA. There is no stopping this movement.  It is in the numbers and well as spiritual reality.

The old white privileged paradigm in the USA is struggling to survive, and that is why it has gained temporary strength through a Trump presidency. It is a last gasp for that old world.

But as it comes down it will bring much darkness and turmoil to the country and world.  And of course we will experience great leaps of growth and consciousness transformation at the same time.

And this week brings us the Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini that connects with the USA natal Mars and Trump’s natal Sun and Moon.

This is a usually lively full moon full activating various types of communication. It will prompt us to integrate lots of information into some order, meaning and resolution.

This is a good time for learning and education.

Saturn conjunct this Full Moon, however, will push hard for resolution, conclusions, and limits. For some this will put a damper on otherwise lively communication at this annual Full Moon in Gemini.

There may also be a sense of fated events for the USA and soon to be president Trump around this time with the Saturn influence.  

Keep in mind that next week on the 19th Mercury will go retrograde and will stay retrograde until January 8.

Many have already been feeling its effects as it has slowed down appreciably before it will stop on the 19th and then go retrograde.

As you know our perceptions begin to change, our thinking and communcating sometimes become distorted. We rewind to times and people gone by, and we may begin to question our previous decisions. More on that next week.

Till next week,

Leo
