Total Lunar Eclipse, Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast July 22-28

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 21, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Powerful tides are shifting this week as there will be another Eclipse as Mercury goes Retrograde.

On Thursday July 26 at 1:02 AM EDT Mercury goes Retrograde. It will stay Retrograde until August 19- when it goes back Direct.

The eclipse this week is on Friday July 27 at 4:20 PM EDT. It is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius.

So energies will be in flux this week, and as a result we will be shifting our thinking and our energy bodies.

Mercury goes Retrograde in Leo, so our way of thinking creatively is shifting.  As with all Mercury Retrograde time periods, we will be changing our perceptions and our ways of communicating.

This changing is often felt rather subtly, but nevertheless people often rethink or question what they have previously decided. And if that happens with you, it is best to wait until Mercury goes back direct before deciding to act on what you have been questioning. And of course waiting a week after it has gone back Direct is the best strategy for making important decisions.

During Mercury Retrograde it is best to not rely too much on linear thinking.  It is usually best to process and reflect, imagine and think inventively.

People from the past often come back into our hearts and minds through our dreams, our waking memories, or actually in the flesh during Mercury Retrograde.

Their re-appearance is meant to help us better understand current situations, especially relationship issues.

So Mercury Retrograde is beginning just before the Lunar Eclipse this week.  And the first couple of days of Mercury Retrograde are often more confusing and disorienting.  

And happening so close to the Lunar Eclipse, which brings increased intensity and disturbance, we may experience events that may seem hard to understand or control.

Like the last Eclipse on July 12, this one is also more powerful than usual. The one on July 12 was closely in opposition to god of the underworld Pluto.

This one on the 27th has Mars closely conjunct the Moon in Aquarius, and Uranus square the Moon in Aquarius and Sun in Leo. That makes an important Fixed T-square formation, one that pulls us in 3 different directions.

The Sun in Leo expresses creative shining and sees itself as the center of attention; the Moon in Aquarius expresses group needs, social needs, and social consciousness.  Mars conjunct that Moon in Aquarius adds much force for the needs of the group or community.  And Uranus in Taurus seeks to break down the usual way of being,  the more conventional approach.

The current teaming up this week for socialism in health plans expressed by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio- Cortez is representative of what the Uranian and Aquarius ways are all about.

The Sun in Leo represents the executive or presidential controls.

So in your own life it is time to break outside your usual boxes of thinking and being.  You may have only seen a couple of options for solving certain issues in your life. Now you can be awakened to see options you never thought of before.

If you were born in late April, late July, late October, or late January you may be greatly affected by this Eclipse.  If you have any natal planets in early Taurus, early Leo, early Scorpio or early Aquarius you may be greatly affected by this Eclipse.

This eclipse is meant to shake us out of same-old, same-old, same-old thinking or ways of being. It can assist us in letting go of that which does not serve us. It can bring in awakening energies that break us out of old boxes and provide breakthroughs in our consciousness and lives.

This is a transformational time period, one that accelerates our progress and evolution.

It may also feel painful for many, especially those who have been holding on tightly to what needs too be released.

The fixed signs are mostly affected by this eclipse, and those are the signs that tend to hold on and not let go the most.

Aquarius tends to hold onto certain ways of thinking, set ways of being socially conscious.

Scorpio holds onto feelings from the past, especially hurts and resentments.

Leo tends to hold onto a very set ego and way of seeing oneself.

Taurus holds onto many things, especially possessions or that which it claims as its own.

It is time to let go more, and know that the Universe is at our backs and has our backs for transformation.

In the greater world you can see how the USA appears to be falling apart. There are great cultural divisions now, ones that are breaking up relationships and families.  Red and blue state divisions are stronger than ever. Trumpites and non Trumpites are fiercely against one another.

The fiasco last week with Putin and Trump is indicative of how out of balance the USA has become under Trump.

Those wanting to bring down the Trump presidency are feeling more confident they can do it now.  Those attempts will get stronger and stronger now, further breaking down the stability of the nation. It is likely that before too long the increasing chaos for change will be met with more militaristic attempts at control.

Israel is now in the spotlight of Eclipse Season.  It has been severely bombing the Gaza Strip Palestinians, and Palestinian Hamas has been fighting Israel.  Iran and Syria are also potential fighting zones now for Israel.  The Middle East region is ripe for major conflict soon. Russia and the USA presence there makes it all more dangerous.

Remember that the Military Industrial Complex will be threatened over the next few years, especially so when transiting Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn will make conjunction with the USA Natal Pluto in Capricorn in its 2nd house (a symbol of the Military/Industrial complex). This will happen in the early 2020’s.

The Age of Aquarius is busting at the seams of our old age structures.  It seeks to bring to our consciousness the new waves of love and truth appropriate to this New Age.

And now during Eclipse Season these new energies are stronger than usual. As you clear out the baggage that is distorting  your authentic soul self, your inner vessels of receptivity are opened to receive these divine energies from the Age of Aquarius.

There is revolution and evolution roaring in our world now and deep in our souls.  Be with the change. Be with the Love. Be with the Truth.

Do not be frightened by the power displays of the System.  Compared to the vastness and power of the Universe, it is just castles in the sand.

Take a look at this video about Summer Eclipse Season 2018 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QkSNDn0QCg&feature=youtu.be.

There will be a new one in early August.

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

Mutable Grand Cross New Moon and Astrology Forecast June 5-12

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 4, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are experiencing an important New Moon in Gemini on June 4 at 11 PM EDT.   The lunar cycle it begins will stretch through Mars going Direct on June 29.   And most importantly it forms a Mutable Grand Cross that includes Saturn square Neptune.

The Grand Cross has the Sun, Moon, and Venus in Gemini;   Saturn opposing those planets in Sagittarius;  Neptune squaring both those position in Pisces;  and Jupiter opposing Neptune and squaring the other planets from Virgo.

Grand crosses pull us in 4 different directions. The best way to handle one is to let go and take the ride, not try too hard to figure things out or control things.

In this case the 3 Gemini planets seek to receive and deliver information; Saturn in Sagittarius seeks to put information together into a defined opinion or conclusion;  Neptune in Pisces seeks to let go and trust;  Jupiter in Virgo seeks order.

All these planets together in mutable signs tell us to let go to the winds of change.  There is so much change in the air now as we all adjust to this new chapter of experience we find ourselves in.

As we gather new information and insights, we are searching  for ways to find some answers and conclusions.  But there is a tendency now to focus too much on solving issues. This can bring us to mental overload and being obsessed.   Neptune seeks to help us to surrender our chattering minds or to find escapes or indulge in addictions. It is best now to trust the process while believing the answers will come in at just the right time.

This Grand Cross New Moon, however, should be good for interesting conversations, for lively discussions with differences in opinion.

It may also be a good time for new ideas or ways of thinking and seeing things.

This is the last New Moon before Mars goes Direct, and it represents us revving up our engines before we drive more fully forward after June 29.

This is also a good time to be aware of messages from spirit, to be aware of signs, symbols, and synchronicities.   One should be open to changes of mind too.

Saturn square Neptune within the Grand Cross shows us order versus disorder and boundaries and limits versus openness and porousness.

The greater world is in such disorder now trying to find its way.  Ther is an old system that is running out of steam.  There is little honesty, integrity, and heart inside the empty old structures.

The Republican and Democrat parties are representative of this old system.  Bernie Sanders is a voice outside the sytem, as up to this year he has indenified with being an Independent Senator.

The Libertarian and Green parties also represent more pure and uncorrupted voices outside the system.  But how much chance do its candidates have? If the dominating and controlling debate committees run by the Democrat and Republican parties found a place on the stage for other parties to participate in Presidential debates, the American public would benefit greatly.

But I think you can see the Saturn/Neptune square playing out in the presidential race.  The Old Guard has been trying to maintain the old order, while candidates like Trump and Sanders are bringing new ways that are bringing with them more chaos and disorder and even riots.

As we get into the political conventions this summer, order versus disorder wil play out even more, and who knows how it will all pan out in this New Era.

In the greater world, and especially the Middle East, Order versus Chaos will continue to play out. Islamic State has broken apart old state borders and threatens more chaos. A very conservative Israeli government and an increasingly desperate Palestinian community shows potential greater conflict also.

China in the far east has been building new places in the ocean that it claims it owns while other countries strongly disagree. And Taiwan is now, with its new President, showing greater signs of independence from China.

And other countries and immigration will continue this breaking down of old borders and boundaries.

This is all meant to be as we leave the Pisces Age for the Age of Aquarius.   We are in a very intense transition between ages,  and the old will continue to break down, though leaders will sometimes stubbornly and violently hold onto the way it used to be.

This is not about the bad guys from a bad age fighting the good guys from a good age,though it may feel like that sometimes.

It is really like nature changing its seasons, except more intensely and dramatically.

Thus if you are a progressive who has much anger against more conservative voices in our world, keep in mind that they represent the part of all of us that is resistant to big change, that holds onto the old and comfortable.

They are not the enemy.

And if you are more conservative and like the world just as it is. do not demonize those who want change as crazy communists or luny dreamers bringing unnnatural chaotic ways into your life.

This week you should be taken out of old ruts and depressed feelings, as this is a stimulating if perhaps confusing New Moon Grand Cross.

Sometimes old ruts can feel like a comfort zone even if not good for us.  Do your best now to let these winds take you out of the ruts.

But it will not be time yet to move fully forward personally or globally. That will wait until July and August.

Till next week,

Leo

The webinar series will begin on August 6 and continue on August 13 and 20.  $125  for the series, payable before the classes.

Waiting in Transition and Astrology Forecast May 8-14

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 7, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in a holding pattern now, waiting for the call to move forward.  Mars and Mercury are Retrograde: Mercury till May 22 and Mars till June 29.

As we just passed through a New Moon in Taurus while all this Retrograde business is going on, we need to be in “get moving” mode even if you do not know where to go.

So get things done around the house, get your finances in order, run errands, clean up the old both physically and mentally/emotionally.

Taurus is a grounded, practical sign; but it is also a sign that appreciates the body and Earth.  It sees much of life through its senses, smelling and touching and tasting.  It loves to enjoy its body through comfort also, so spas and hammocks work well for them.

Since it is “Taurus time” for all of us now, it is a good time for each of us to do what Taurus likes and needs to do.

Since we gotta wait before moving more fully into the new era of our lives, it is good now to keep busy; but it is even more important to do inner work.

It is time with Mercury and Mars retrograde, to feel your past, to do some healing, to release and let go what represents the old era of your life.

It will behoove you to do this inner work, as you do not need baggage from the past as you move into the new era of your life.

Of course one cannot totally remove what one has been traumatized or hurt by in one’s past; but now at the Retrogrades and while you are in transition between eras, the winds of the Universe are at your back for inner healing and release.

In the greater world things have also slowed down, with no big events to speak of.

Politically in the USA the movement for electing President is slowing down as it is more obvious who the candidates will be.

But we do not know for sure who will win or what the process to get there will be like.

Our movement forward is on hold now with conversation about who will support Trump, with questions about Clinton’s troubles with her emails, with unknowns about how Sanders and his values will fit into the democratic platform at the convention.

But much more important than the personalities is what each candidate represents for our world, what direction America is moving toward.

Who wins the Presidency will show us loud and clear who we are now and what we value.

And now during the Retrograde, without the distraction of important primaries anymore, we will be able to truly get to know who the candidates are and what they represent.

On the surface Trump is a wealthy brash celebrity.  What else does he represent on a more substantial level?

Clinton is a woman and part of the Clinton political royalty, but what does she represent on a deeper more substantial level?

With Sanders it is more obvious what he represents on a substantial level. He has been loud and clear for many years.

So we are all processing the primary season we have just gone though- 17 republican candidates later- 3 Democratic candidates later.

We can sit back and wait for the party conventions, which occur in July- after Mars goes direct.

And for all of us July is the time of getting our life automobiles started up again for a drive into the new era of our lives.

This does not mean that personal and global events will stop until July.  The personal events over the next couple months, while the retrogrades continue, will help us to further release old mental tapes, old traumas and hurts, old patterns of Self denial and co-dependency.

The events that happen over the next couple of months will also help us to see more clearly our new era of life, to help us to embrace or at least accept our new life energies.

Remember that most important is how we are shifting energetically, because our energetic shifting will determine what and who we will attact into our lives.

It is  good time now to stay very present with our selves and our interactions with others. Watch and feel what is shifting inside.  You are changing at a deep cellular level, changing to be aligned with the energies of the Age of Aquarius that we are on the cusp of.

Everything has been accelerated and intensified, so we can do the inner work necessary to change our vibrations and lives.

Transition between worlds is not easy, in fact it can be quite painful at times, especially so when faced with old traumas and wounds. But the new birth can feel so good, so inspiring and heartfelt.

In the global world transition during this current Retrograde period, look for signs and symbols to tell you where things are headed now.

Look closely at Syria and Iraq, North Korea, Israel and Palestine, China and Japan.

Look more closely at the economy and stock market for signs and symbols of change.

It is the military/economic complex that hold up our old world.  There will be bigger and bigger cracks in its structure if we are to experience the kind of transformation necessary to bring the birth of the Age of Aquarius.

So even if some of the world events make you feel very insecure, remember that just like in your personal transformation, there is a need to face old energies and emotions, beliefs, and perceptions that need to be released.

The transitions can be painful and scary at times, but necessary in the process of positive Transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

Til next week,

Leo

While Mercury is retrograde, I am considering changing the webinar dates from beginning June 4 to beginning August 6- just considering. Many have shown interest in the webinar series.Please give me your feedback for dates.  It is greatly needed. And for those of you who have given deposit already, your input is most important.  Here is what the webinar will continue to be:

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday June 4 at 1 PM  EDT.  At this point I am leaning toward Saturdays June 18 and June 25 at 1 PM to finish up the series. The second and third dates are not set in stone yet.   Each class will last approximately 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.
I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world evetns will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is to be paid prior to the classes.
Audio recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.

 

 

 

Retrogrades and Beltane and Astrology Forecast May 1-7

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on April 30, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

With Mars and Mercury Retrograde, it is time to chill, with no dramatic needs to move forward or do anything big.

We have certainly entered a New Era of human life on Earth, and this new era will deliver us into the Age Of Aquarius in 2020/21.

In the meantime we are shedding old skins of attachment to an old paradigm and age that is energetically dissolving.

And now as we sit in this new phase of our lives, the temptation is to try to figure out exactly what is going on and to act to move things forward.

But with the retrograde planets, it is best to take time to process and heal, and to enjoy the moment without agenda, complication, or much stress.

Meditation and enjoying nature are good things to do now, as we wait for “further instruction” from spirit.   Sun in Taurus will help us to do just that.

With Mars Retrograde, we are on a deep level trying to ascertain what we truly want from a Higher Self perspective.   Where are we headed in our lives, what gives us passion and purpose?

With Mercury Retrograde, we are going deeper inside to know what we truly believe, to know what is true for us.

With  both these planets retrograde together,  we know we must stay processing- not acting out or coming to conclusions.

You will likely have “aha” moments during the retrograde period, but do your best not to have those “aha” moments bring you to change course or to make big decisions.

Wait until Mercury is Direct on May 22 before deciding; wait unti Mars goes Direct on June 29 before taking big actions forward.

Often when Mercury is Retrograde we question our path and paradigm, but it is best to wait for it to go direct before deciding once and for all what to do.

Often when Mars is Retrograde, we are tempted to do something impulsively, to take premature action, to change the direction of our path; but it is best to wait until it goes back Direct before taking any real actions.

Fitting the same theme of inaction, we are in a last quarter Moon phase until Friday May 6 when there is a New Moon in Taurus. That New Moon in Taurus is at 3:30 PM EDT>

Until then stay under the radar, and allow your consciousness to go wherever it wants to go naturally.   Stay attuned to your heart now more than your head, and from there you are getting more in touch with your true nature and desires.

Allow your self to be in your feelings and to process what has been happening over the last several weeks.   That processing puts you in the arms of your soul, a prerequisite for moving forward later.   The heart and soul are not abour “bottom line” or goals.

They instead seek deep connections and heartfelt living in the moment.

So best now to not stress about what you need to do to get your life working the way you want it to. It is better to trust now your Higher Self and the Universe to guide you at just the right time.

At the New Moon in Taurus you will feel some spark, but it is in Taurus so the spark is not that fiery.  Taurus is fixed earth, and as such it moves quite lowly if at all sometimes.

So it is best at and after the New Moon in Taurus to enjoy your body and its senses, eat good food, smell the ocean, touch soft skin, listen to music.  Nature is a great place to be during Taurus time, as is your home or anywhere and with anyone who makes you feel comfortable and safe.

Taurus is slo-mo movement, which is aligned with the non action of the retrograde planets.

This does not mean you have to just sit around and do nothing.  You can still work around the house, run errands, visit friends, etc. Just take it slow, no stress, no worries about how all is going to turn out.

Early this week there is a sacred turning point of nature.   It is Beltane on May 1, which is approximately half way between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice.

It is celebrated with Maypoles and symbolizes the fertility at this time of year and a balance between naturally opposite energies. It is a spring festival in many places around the world.

That May 1 date is also celebrated as May Day, a day of revolution for the International Workers of the World. It has been a day for socialists.

Speaking of socialists, Bernie Sanders has fallen behind Hilary Clinton.  Do you remember when I made some predictions at the beginning of the primary process?

My formula determined that Trump would be the Republican candidate, but it was so close between Clinton and Sanders. But I gave Sanders the edge.   The email scandal is still an issue for Clinton, and could still turn the tide toward Sanders.

There will soon enough be great events of world change again.  These events will open the doorways even more to the Age of Aquarius.

All we have to do is work on our consciousness and inner worlds.  We can be the change we want to see in the world.  We each become a model for the Age of Aquarius.

Do your best to stay away from people or energies that do not resonate with this authentic Self you are developing.

Till next week,

Leo

Being True to Your Self and Destiny and Astrology Forecast April 10-16

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on April 9, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We passed through the doorway into a new era at the Aries New Moon.    For some the process has not been easy.

Often when we move into something new there is an Initiation period that puts “devils at our doorway”.

Our minds go over the past, regrets and grief, doubts and guilt.  Nevertheless it is truly time to move forward now, so letting go of these “demons” in our mind is essential.

But with Mars going Retrograde on April 17 and Mercury going Retrograde on April 28 you may not feel fully activated and clear about your new world until June- or in some cases July.

For some the outer practical world has changed little, but they can feel the changes inside. You may be involved in the same habits as usual, but you do not feel safe and secure inside yourself.   Reaching inside for “normal” is not easy anymore, because the old normal from the old era is gone.  And there is no “new normal” that can be felt yet.

So we may have to push through the discomfort now and move forward anyway.

With this change into a new era there are feelings of getting older. And look around at how the kids from yesterday are adults now. Millenials are having an important imprint on our world in big ways now.

They are the first young generation in some time that feels they can change the world.

They vote for Bernie Sanders because they believe the economic structure that rules this world is unfair.  They believe their future is rocky as a result of the inequities.

And this current election process for President of the USA is so different from anything in my lifetime.  It truly makes me feel like the world is not what it used to be.

And if you feel that the world looks worse not better, remember that during this evolutionary process there will be energies that seek to slow us down and stay in the past.

The conflict now is beween energies of change and transformation, which are generally more chaotic, against efforts to dominate and control and keep the status quo.

That process is about to intensify.  And as security is threatened ( through riots, terror attacks, etc.), more and more people will welcome attempts to bring order to the world.

And that is when there is a big problem. A dramatic comparison is the ’30s and ’40s when fascism got stronger in the face of a more chaotic world.

But remember that fascism was defeated and progress forward ensued.   Now as European cultures are feeling invaded more and more, it is understandble how they want to put a lid on immigration.  They feel their culture is being compromised. And they fear terrorism from new arrivals.

Yet progress forward into a new world means we learn to mix with other cultures and ways of living-  Diversity within Unity. It promises to be a difficult transition- here in the USA also.

This coming week starts with Sun in Aries conjunct Uranus late Saturday the 9th.   This aspect will bring strong desire to break outside the box of our minds and lives.

There is a feeling to be liberated from that which holds us back.  This aspect also suggests that we stand up tall and empowered in our authentic truth.  It is time to stand up for your self and be true to your Self.

Being true to oneself is not always appreciated in society or families that want everyone to wear the same uniform.  One is made to feel selfish or self centered.

But if you are made a certain way by the Godforce, it is heretical in effect to not honor your Self.  Your destiny is dependent on you honoring your authentic Self, as you have a purpose beyond being selfless and unselfish.    Keeping you away from your Self is a way to control you and make you another robot in society.

Later this week, actually at the beginning of next week, Mars goes from Direct to Retrograde in Sagittarius.  The date of the beginning of Mars Retrograde is April 17.  It will stay Retrograde until June 29.

Mars Retrograde is a time to get more deeply in touch with one’s will and one’s assertiveness.

You will be able to take that time while Mars is Retrograde to dig deep inside your self to know what it is you want now, what you desire for your life.

You may seriously question what you have chosen in the past and the direction you have chosen now.

But remember that during Mars Retrograde it is not a good time to make any rash decisions or to do anything impulsive.

Even if it feels totally right to change directions, please wait until Mars goes back Direct before changing course. I have seen so many times that when it goes back Direct the person goes back to what they originally intended. The purpose of the questioning was to have a surety.  Yet I have also seen people truly become sure their original choice was wrong after Mars goes back direct again.  So just wait if you can.

We will discuss more about Mars Retrograde next week.

Below is more information on the webinar I am offering:

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday June 4 at 1 PM  EDT.  At this point I am leaning toward Saturdays June 18 and June 25 at 1 PM to finish up the series. The second and third dates are not set in stone yet.   Each class will last approximately 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.
I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world evetns will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is to be paid prior to the classes.
Audio recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.
Till next week,
Leo

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Entering a New Era and Astrology Forecast April 3-9

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 2, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This is an important week ahead.  The eclipses have passed, a big old era of our lives has passed.   The door that leads back to that old era is slammed shut, so there is nowhere to go but forward after the New Moon in Aries on April 7.

This Aries New Moon, on April 7 at 7:24 AM EDT, means more than the usual one, as it signifies bigger new beginnings than usual.

The goodbyes are most deeply felt now before the new moon.

Our whole world is passing from one era to another.     Look at the political world and competition for President.

The old rules from the old era are not there like they used to be.   The candidacies of Sanders and Trump are breaking all the old rules down.

Sanders is an avowed socialist who has little allegiance to the monetary “system”.   Trump has been breaking all the rules and winning whilst doing so.

In fact if Clinton wins it will mean the first female ever elected, which would mean a new beginning too.

In the greater world the Islamic State has broken all the rules of a civilized society and eaten up land and changed the boundaries that were claimed by nation states, like Iraq and Syria.

North Korea has been getting inordinately more vociferous in its’ screams to be noticed for its nuclear power.  The danger level for war is greater than ever in Korea.

Old Rules have been breaking down, New Rules are slowly developing.

Within the chaos of breakdowns, potential creativity is opened up.  Progress and transformation become more attainable.

But with this chaos there are strong desires to keep a lid on the jar of change, to hold back the rushing energies of transformation.

More fascistic politics get stronger, militaries and police forces get stronger.

In Europe the chaos of immigration and terrorism has been creating more right wing voices to act to heavily control everything.

This is a most dangerous combination between chaos and control, but it is a natural place to be in this transition between ages.

And now we are entering, with this Aries New Moon, a new era within the transition between ages.

This new era will be focused on the breakdown of the old world and its system in America and around the world.

In your own life, after this Aries New Moon which is conjunct liberating Uranus, it is time to move forward and not look back. This New Moon is also square Pluto, so the still viable transformational Uranus/Pluto square is being triggered at this New Moon.

Expect the intensity level to increase appreciably and the desire for action to get stronger.

You are being liberated from old stuck places in your mind, heart, body and life.

You are being directed to your true Self and your personal needs, to your true authentic Self.

It is time to move forward in a big way now, freed from old patterns of servitude to causes other than your own.

You are here on this planet to fulfill a destiny and you cannot do that if you continue to constantly get distracted by others’ dramas.

Use this Aries New Moon to break away and get going in this new era of your life.

If you have already entered this new season of your life, then use this New Moon to propel your Self forward without looking back.

There is no time now that can be alotted to wringing your hands with complaints.

It is time to do something about it, to empower your Self like you have never done before.

Aries is quite arguably the most empowered of all the signs (Scorpio would disagree), so you can use this energy to feed your inner forces of strength.

Uranus in the signature of this New Moon in Aries will awaken you out of any slumber you have been in.  Pluto will help you to be ruthless in your desires to move on.

The winter slumber in our minds and hearts will end after this New Moon in Aries.  It is time to wake up and to look more clearly at our Self and our life and to make the necessary changes.

Awakening also means seeing and speaking the truth and not hiding it anymore.

In the greater world Uranus is revolution, a breaking from conventional standards of behavior.  So watch for peoples and countries to break out and make great breakthoughs surrounding and after this Aries New Moon.

Countries that feel shackled by the world system will get stronger with their actions and voices. So North Korea and Palestine may get more angry now.

In your personal life it would be beneficial now to honor this move into  a new era of your life.

Look over the past few years and see how it has been for you and your growth.

If you feel regret because of what was done or not done during that time, please realize that until one truly wakes up, change will not happen.

Don’t judge your self for what happened in the last era of your life. Instead look it over and learn from your mistakes. You can take responsibility without finding blame.   Ponder the possibility that everything happened for a reason, even if you cannot figure it out.

And now as you have awakened in a new way, take responsibility for making the necessary changes.

If you blame someone else for your stuck place, you are missing the deeper point.   That person you blame for being stuck was chosen by you to be in your life.   They are a part of you, the part that is comfortable in the familiar and is afraid of change.

If you truly are ready for change, then find a way to do it!

It will be a very interesing Spring and Summer 2016– Lots of big change and powerful Earth shaking world events.

Stay tuned right here,

Leo
