It is Happening Now and Astrology Forecast March 15-21.

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we approached the last Eclipse season, which included the ultra important Saturn conjunct Pluto formation, we wrote how the stock market and economy would be in turmoil and in danger of a great fall.

And of course we have been writing for quite some time now that our world and country are on an unstoppable destiny into the Age of Aquarius.  The writings have also communicated that the grave darkness from difficult events would lead into the light and love and truth for that new Age.

January was a major “turning point time period” and it held major events that are challenging our human family in a major way

January held with it a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer; the all important Saturn conjunct Pluto force of destruction; as well as Spirit and mind awakening Uranus switching back to Direct motion.

The Corona virus and near crash of the stock market is initiating the Chaos versus Order theme we have also been speaking about- Or as could happen more severely: Chaos leading to Martial Law.

We must admit that the virus and subsequent downturn of the stock market and economy have brought many to unbridled Fear and Panic.

And that fear and panic are bringing us to a vulnerability that leaves us quite susceptible to being controlled and dominated by our societal leaders. Look at World War II and Germany.

It feels so unnatural to be confined to our homes and neighborhoods, to have schools and sports events and restaurants and gatherings all be cancelled or done remotely when possible.

These events all opened widely just after Mercury went back back Direct, showing us what direction our world was moving toward.

At around the same time, the Democrats’ primaries suddenly showed a quick pivot to Joe Biden for President.  Many candidates dropped out of contention and gave their endorsement to Biden. The Democratic Party is now rallying around Biden, and hoping to stop the Bernie train of Revolution and Transformation of the USA.

Wanting back the “normality” of the Obama years is certainly a a large part of the desire for Biden as President, especially so as Trump being defeated is so important to so many. Many people see him as destroying the idealistic values of the United States.

Yet in the bigger picture Trump is just an actor, as Shakespeare said more eloquently, in the drama destiny of our lives (“all the world’s a stage”). This period of time is part of the transition between Ages.

What is going on now cannot be controlled by the collective ego of the USA and World. It is part of one of the widest cycles astrologically: 2160 years long for an Age, the Pisces Age just passing.

It is time for each of us to let go another level of our individual egos, to allow our Soul Self to direct us.

This movement into the age of Aquarius is bigger than each of our egos, bigger than all our egos together.

We will find our center and our faith within our Soul/Spirit selves, which are connected to the Universe and its pillars of Truth and Love.

Our fears and doubts are natural sometimes, but if we allow ourselves to be taken over by the panic, we will be letting go of our connections to “our better angels”, to the connections that bring us all together as One Family, dysfunctional as it is right now.

This coming week or 10 days should help our journey, and help us to connect with Higher Soul self and Universe.

That is because we experience during that time the Spring Equinox, followed by the big new beginnings of the Aries New Moon. And we experience Mars conjunct Jupiter too.

Before that however, the Moon enters the darkening last quarter of its cycle on Monday March 16.

The Moon is in Sagittarius then, square to the Sun in Pisces. So while Pisces may desire to keep processing one’s feelings and thoughts, Moon in Sagittarius is ready to take the ride forward.

And on the 19th,  the Sun moves into the annual Spring Equinox, which is the beginning of Sun in Aries for 30 days.

There will likely be some feelings of restlessness, of wanting to start something new, of the start of Spring Fever.

Go with these feelings, especially if they help you to leave any debilitating feelings of fear and panic.

Yes we need to take precautions and be as safe as possible, but we do not need to fall into the pits of despair.

If you meditate or find your inner peace and strength in nature or something else, that centering will lead you to wherever you need to be now.  Spirit will not let you down.

Following the crowd of panicked sheep will lead you astray, off your spiritual path, losing your Self in dis-empowering Fear.

Do not berate your self because you are feeling much fear sometimes.   Just do not surrender to that fear. Stay above water so you do not drown.

Perhaps you are someone who is more extroverted, and if so be around people who are not debilitated by fear. Be around those who keep hope alive, love alive, truth alive.

Be around those you feel you can be your authentic self with, those who “see” you and appreciate you. And/or be with your healers and counselors, those who care about you and do not judge you. Yes they may challenge you and hold you accountable, but they do not help you to feel bad about yourself .

The Spring Equinox is on March 19 at 11:50 PM EDT.   The Sun moves into Aries, a sign of self assertion and self honoring, of wanting to be true to self, to be true to how one is created not how one is “supposed” to be by programmed societal values.

Aries is independent, not that sociable, gets right to the point straight forward and direct.

They can be quite competitive, forceful at times, and appreciating of new beginnings like Spring.  They can be quite brave too, not letting fear defeat them.

Next week, on the 24th, the Moon catches up to the Sun in Aries, creating the New Moon in Aries. That is when the real time of new beginnings happens.

So this week there may be false starts, or at least feeling of not quite ready; or instead feelings of great restlessness to get moving.

Just after the Equinox and before the next new moon, there is an important planetary event: Mars conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn on March 20.

That is just a few days before the New Moon in Aries.  This Jupiter conjunct Mars happens exactly where Saturn made conjunction with Pluto: at 22+ degrees of Capricorn.

This will trigger that Saturn/Pluto connection from January 12 this year.   Watch for issues with  the stock market or virus to be triggered.

What happened for you back in December/January?  Where do you stand with those issues now.

Mars conjunct Jupiter  could be a motivator or inspiring element for you.  It is an appetizer for the powerful Jupiter conjunct Pluto on April 4.

On April 3 at 5:30 PM local time, I am giving a talk about 2020 and what is happening and can be expected in our world now.  The talk is in Sedona Arizona. The next day Saturday April 4 I will make that talk a webinar, again live, but on Zoom this time.

We will look at Presidential campaigns and charts, the USA chart and current and coming events. And we will discuss personal transformation also, aligned with Age of Aquarius consciousness.  Fee is $20 for the talk.

This begins a series of 4 such talks, one  each month for 4 months. To be at all 4 of them will cost $70. If you have some interest in the Sedona talk or the Webinar, contact me at soulus@aol.com. I am also planning on regular podcasts and videos during these challenging times.

Till next week

And the Winner Is?And Astrology Forecast February 2-8

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 2, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Eclipse Season Winter 2020 can still be seen in our rear-view mirrors.  

There is more to process through, and hopefully each of us finds the time to do so, with professional support, or close friends, or time for being alone with yourself to sort through and heal from.

The last couple of months brought up so much from deep within our minds, souls, spirits, and bodies.

They have been “brought back up” into our awareness,  because we need more clarity,  direction, insight, and release of old patterns that do not serve us or our evolution into the Age of Aquarius.

Our collective human lives are really in crisis now, as we get more and more certain that our old paradigm is failing us, as we struggle to find our way forward.

Many struggle to be present, or even to just wanting to be present.  Our phones, computers and other tech escapes have us living more and more in a virtual world bubble.

Many more young members of society awaken each morning as adults now.  And as they look out at the world we live in, they are scared to death.

Mass murders at schools, workplaces, restaurants, night clubs and other frequented places, gives many people pause when thinking about going outside their homes for any reason.

Your work needs and your friendship needs can more and more often be “satisfied” from home or on a computer.

Sex lives are also more and more virtual, with internet porn, dating site hookups,  and now human-like sex robots.

We do not even need to go out for groceries or restaurant food, which can be delivered to our door, along with everything else you want and need taken care of by Amazon.

And look at the world “out there”. Our American culture is split, as it once was at the Civil War.

Our economy is for show, not nearly as good as it is being sold to us.

And during this latest Eclipse Season, we were brought to the brink of war with Iran ( which could have triggered  a World War); The Coronavirus outbreak of illness and death started in China; the almost war with Iran that could have led to World War III; and economy and stock market on the brink of severe downturn; and a presidential impeachment process that is about power and politics more than desires for truth, justice, fairness, and community.

Of course our world is at a crisis point at a Crossroads based on bringing back our values that are connected to “our better angels” as Abraham Lincoln alerted us to.  OR NOT making those “better angel” values our highest priority.  The impeachment process showed us, when a vote came for calling witnesses and documents, how winning politically is more important than our cherished values and ideals.

We are in deep trouble, and can no longer operate from a default pattern of energies, habits, and opinions that keep us stuck in the old world, paradigm and Age that do not work for us, or help provide us with Truth, Love and care for one another and our community.

This week, as we are in the beginning of the Lunar Cycle begun at the New Moon in Aquarius on the 24th,  begin our week at Imbolc on the 2nd of February.

Imbolc has been considered a sacred day for hundreds of years, especially by those who find spiritual Oneness in Nature.

Imbolc, called Groundhog Day in our current pop culture, is the half way marker between Winter and Spring. It was considered as a Time of Initiation.

And Groundhog Day is seeing shadows that tell people if Spring is coming early in any given year.

Mercury leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces on Monday February 3, shifting our mind into more imaginative and creative thinking and communicating.

Staunch adherents of “cause and effect” logic find Mercury in Pisces quite challenging, as it is into finding connections and right brain unity more than the bottom line of left brain thinking.

This week tops off with Venus entering battler Aries on Friday the 7th.

This is Venus’ best example of being empowered, self assertive, and true to Self.

Venus in Aries is independent and self confident.  Closest Goddess to this Venus placement in Aries is Athena.

And to top off this week, we have a Full Moon in Leo on the 9th at 2:33 AM EST.

The Sun is in Aquarius opposes the Moon in Leo, which makes the Full Moon.

So Aquarius’ mind is quite different than Leo’s heart.  At this Full Moon you may get a realization that trusting mind more than heart is not the right way to believe and lead one’s life.

Leo ideally is the open heart of a 3 year old whose heart is ready to take on all experiences.  And she also appreciates all the attention she may be getting.

Aquarius knows the value of a clear mind that also possesses higher values. It operates from a web of thought patterns, similar to the Internet.

I did much study this week to be able to find who the next USA president will be.

I felt pretty sure when I predicted Obama would be the Democrat nominee and McCain the Republican nominee in 2008, then Obama the winner. I made prediction around this time of year I believe. Since I was able to predict so early in the process, using my own astro formulas, I believe those 2 were destined to win.

Then in 2016 I predicted early that Trump would be the nominee and eventual winner

This time it is not so easy, as 3 or 4 people do well in the formula.

Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and in a lesser way Bloomberg and Warren all meet the formula criteria. So does Trump fit the formula.

But Elizabeth Warren is also so connected to the Eclipses this year in June and November and most of all she is connected to the Jupiter conjunct Saturn aspect in December that is a symbol of the New Age of Aquarius beginning.   Her natal Jupiter is at 0 degrees 14 minutes of Aquarius.  The Jupiter/Saturn conjunction is exactly at 0 degrees 14 minutes of Aquarius

I predict Elizabeth Warren will win,  But I do so with less confidence than in previous years.

In Addition to all this potential confusion, the Universe is throwing a big curve ball on Election Day this year because it has the same crazy planetary aspect it had on Election Day November 7, 2000.

Mercury that night in 2000 was shifting from Retrograde to Direct,  and news anchors all kept going back and forth predicting Bush won, then Gore, then Bush, etc.

We did not know the winner until weeks later when the Supreme Court got involved. Bush won.

Very strangely, and perhaps most importantly, this Election Day on November 3 has the same planetary alignment as it did on Election Day in November 2000. Mercury goes from Retrograde to Direct that day.

Maybe no one will be the clear winner that night. Maybe Trump will not accept the apparent win by Biden or Bernie or Warren.  Very Good chance one of those 2 alternatives or one we cannot see yet will play out.  To be continued.

Till next week,

Leo

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
