Creating Wholeness and Astrology Forecast August 11-17

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week, at the New Moon in Leo while  Jupiter was opposite Pluto, gates were opened into the next level of transformation, a new chapter in our lives.  For some the shift was subtle, for many old patterns and habits were let go another level, opening them up to new consciousness shifts and a renewed creative life energy.

Later this year, late summer into the autumn, powerful “storms” will shake up our reality, more powerful than Spring Eclipse Season 2013. This will be another Eclipse Season, with an another exact Uranus square Pluto aspect and the emergence into our world of Comet Ison.

The new chapter of life and consciousness we have been entering is in anticipation of the coming world changes.

The biggest world event this past week was the turmoil surrounding the warning of a potential terrorist attack and the security measures taken a result, including the closing of  USA embassies in Islamic countries.

This warning coming soon after the revelations about NSA spying is curious.  The issue of human rights versus security is heating up.   Some are even suggesting the government is creating potential security crises in order to bring hearts and minds away from empathy for Snowden and Assange and Bradley and back toward the fears engendered in our American hearts after 9-11.

Perhaps so, but more importantly this is the Universe bringing to us an important issue to resolve.    As we move into an Aquarian Age, we are needing to keep our eye on this important issue.

The Aquarian Age is in large part about bringing the power and responsibility for our world to the people.     President Eisenhower warned us of the dangers of the Military-Industrial complex in 1961 as he was leaving the White House.

It is much bigger and dangerous now than in 1961.  It has brought us a Superpower and Empire, and the voice of the people seems to be getting less and less influential.

Our minds are potentially manipulated by what the corporate controlled government, through mainstream media, feeds us.  We were fooled into going into Viet Nam, and then fooled again by bogus information about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.  Do you really believe the Intelligence Agencies of the USA, which know so much of what is going on in the world, made a mistake like that?   Especially so because it was obvious at the time that the Bush regime strongly desired to invade  Iraq.

But more and more people are awakening, hearing the piper’s consciousness music from the Age of Aquarius.     We are being drawn into frequencies of awareness that are breaking down programming from an old paradigm, from societies and families that have been carrying old and dying messages from an old age.

We have been giving away our power to “authorities” who have made the rules to benefit those who are all too often selfish, greedy, and best at destruction of others in a survival of the fittest world.

Those of us who have gone through the fires of transformation know that our well being as a human being for the new age is more dependent on alignment with our soul self, alignment with the Universe and its values, alignment with our human family on Earth,  and its needs.

We have learned that we can be empowered and not abusive with that power.   We have learned that we can be empathetic, sensitive and caring, without being weak or victimized.    We can integrate our dark and light sides, our yin and yang, and become whole as we were were intended to be.

As we heal inside and stop fighting our selves and our inner demons, we stop fighting those outside ourselves who remind us of those inner demons.

As we learn to integrate into wholeness all the diversity inside ourselves, we learn to accept and integrate the diversity in our world too.

Victory over our enemies and demons is not the goal anymore.  We are drawn instead to find wholeness and unity.   And from that place we find our place and purpose within that wholeness.

Every time we now encounter a new wave of transformational storms coming in, we have the opportunity to be more in touch with our soul self, and that connection helps guide us through our life into more wholeness and health.  In the process we let go of empty rules and judgments of ourselves and others, and then truly see with clear eyes.

This coming week helps us to integrate the recent changes,.  Next week, when Jupiter squares Uranus and triggers again the Uranus/Pluto square,  we break out and awaken another level, and liberate our selves from inner blocks, form people and situations that keep us stuck in the old paradigm.

Keep in mind also that we are still in Sun in Leo time of year, so enjoy this time, open up to your heart and creative instincts , be more spontaneous, appreciate your self, and express that self in its most natural way, shining your light for all to see.

See you next week,

Leo

Illusion or Awakening and Astrology Forecast July 28- August 3

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on July 27, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The week ahead will bring a combination of many different and contradictory energies.    We will be in the last 10 days before a very energized ignition of new beginnings at the New Moon in Leo on August 6.  

Time before a new moon usually brings us to a winding down, some introspection, and preparing for the new beginnings at the new moon.    And of course this last 10 days before an especially important New moon in Leo will have some of that slowing down quality.

And a Grand Sextile alignment on Monday July 29 will add to the feeling of “down and in” and not “up and out”.  There are 6 planets in sextile to one another that day, all six of those planets in yin signs:  Moon in Taurus, Jupiter in Cancer, Venus in Virgo, Saturn in Scorpio, Pluto in Capricorn, and Neptune in Pisces.    These are all water and earth signs, energies that are yinward and inward signs.

So combined with our also moving into the last quarter of the lunar cycle that day, there is a rather slow and “down” movement.  And with only the Sun and Uranus in fire signs, there is not much zest represented either.

Yet counter to those perhaps depressing energies for some, there is a very energized and powerful planetary movement also.  Mars will be triggering the Uranus Pluto square as it opposes Pluto in Capricorn on Saturday/Sunday and squares Uranus in Aries Tuesday through Thursday.

So be very careful not to get too angry or out of control the next several days, as those Mars movements to the transformational planets Uranus and Pluto will tend to shake things up in a powerful way.

Whereas the Grand Sextile and last quarter Moon will tend to flat line you emotionally and spiritually, the Mars movements will activate you and tend to bring more powerful energies.

Overall this coming week will tend to awaken you to Truth, to core reality, and should motivate you to get moving forward with your life.    There may be some disillusion mixed in with the awakening to what is real and true, some disappointment with people, with life, and situations in your life.

That awakening will help you to let go of people or situations or old patterns that will now strike you as impossible to continue.   You will understand at a deeper level than before why it is insane to do things the same way over and over again and keep expecting better results than are possible.

The situations, decisions, and events that happen this week could have long lasting effects on your life.  The next week, starting at the New Moon in Leo on August 6, there will be a more fast pace of action.   Jupiter will be strongly aspecting the Pluto/Uranus revolutionary and evolutionary square at that time, thrusting lives more fast forward.

Whatever was shaken up and out and began to be seeded during Spring Eclipse Season April-June this year, will soon find its way forward in reality and manifestation.

In the Greater World events are erupting that are changing our world.  In Egypt, as Mars is now igniting the Uranus/Pluto square, there is growing violence and chaos that will change not only Egypt in a big way, but also the Middle East and the world.

More and more whistleblowers like Snowden and Assange and Bradley will come forward to expose previously held secrets and expose more truths of corruption and dominance from Corporate and Government institutions.

America and Israel will flex their military muscles more in Syria in order to gain more control of the strategic and resource rich Middle East.   This region of the world will likely ignite the spark of worldwide transformation out of an old age of superpowers and Empires and into a world of Diversity in Unity.

We are also in the beginning stages of spiritual renaissance for the human family on Earth, as we learn there are many different dimensions of reality, beings who dwell on inner planes of spirit, and beings who dwell in many other places in the Universe.

What we have come to rely on as Reality is in large part a collective consensus programmed into our minds and hearts.  As we move through the old age and that dying paradigm of reality, we awaken to new wonders.

So it is OK to grieve the death of our illusions, the passing of our innocence  to what kind of people and institutions have been running our world, and what kind of lies we have believed.

These disillusions will help us to trust our own minds and hearts more and more, not the mainstream institutions anymore.  The Universe has provided us in recent times with the internet, a place we can still find information and do research outside the dominance of the Matrix.

Slowly but surely, but faster all the time, we are trusting our own individual perception of reality; and as we do that more and more as a collective human family, we change our reality and usher in the Age of Aquarius.

How did we ever get fooled into believing that certain people are better and deserve more than others.   Why did we buy into the idea of emperors or kings and queens or dictators or wealthy people or aristocracy running our lives and world?  Historically many of these people are decadent, corrupt, and murderous and have created a world of their rules that perpetuates their wealth and power.

The Earth and our human family of souls will obviously be better off when we the people wake up and take full responsibility.   As we evolve beyond the old paradigm of separation and survival of the fittest mentality, as we evolve beyond a war of the sexes, as we evolve beyond believing in superior/inferior, as we evolve beyond perpetrator/victim consciousness, and as we evolve beyond trying to defeat darkness, we then know the Oneness of All That Is.   We enter Diversity in Unity. We enter the Age of Aquarius.

See you next week,

Leo

Clearing and Finding Direction and Astrology Forecast July 14-20

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on July 13, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

There are some shifting tides this week, not the least of which is the fact that Mercury will go back Direct next Saturday July 20 at 2:22 PM EDT.

Many people have been dealing with some powerful emotions and emotional issues lately.  Lightness, and carefree feelings have been rather difficult to find. There are many planets in soulful and feeling oriented water signs, including a Grand Trine in water, which will be exact this coming week.

There have been no planets in light and detached air signs, and Saturn’s force of gravity has been very strong.    Moving fast forward has not been in the cards yet, as it has been more aligned to process one’s thoughts and feelings, to work issues out, to face facts, and to plan and organize what is to come.

This week the Grand Trine in water continues and becomes more influential as it is exact this week, so it will still be a time to work with and express your feelings and emotions. For some this has been a very difficult time, as emotions have felt powerful and for some even overwhelming.

There have been emotional breakdowns for some, yet there have also been emotional breakthroughs for others, getting to the core of issues and expressing openly what had been previously guarded and controlled.

This time period has been absolutely necessary, as people are getting more real and looking more deeply and soundly at what previously had been only an idea or inspiration or desire or un-grounded plan.

For most of this coming week Mercury will still be Retrograde, adding to the theme of reflection and introspection, of rethinking one’s plans, of readjusting one’s perceptions.

So this week will still not be a time to leap forward, or to make that big decision absolutely final.     When Mercury goes Direct late this week on the 20th,  the “airwaves” of thinking and communicating will begin to clear up, yet it may take at least a couple of days to have complete clarity and solid direction.

Saturn’s frustrating limitations should also be passing this week, and the feeling of slugging through the mud in your life will begin to lift.

This feeling of slow motion or boredom or of being held back will begin to lift this week, and there should be a renewal of moving energy at our disposal later in the week.

A large part of the reason for the shift of energies will be the changing of directions of Uranus to retrograde on Wednesday the 17th. So Uranus’ awakening, liberating energies will tend to thrust us “outside the boxes” of our minds and lives. As a planet changes directions, from retrograde to direct or from direct to retrograde, its meaning and “frequency” permeate our energy fields.

Since it will be going retrograde, its powers of transformation will begin to get more internalized, giving us more power for awakening consciousness.

True movement forward, however, will not happen until after the 6th of August.  The New Moon in Leo that day will be the first new moon after Mercury goes direct and after the Grand Trine in water begins to lose its strength.

That New Moon in Leo, for many, will be the true beginning of a new chapter in their lives, since all the shakeups of the Spring Eclipse Season.

Events that have been put on hold, new beginnings that have been delayed, ideas and inspirations that have needed to be processed and made real, will be ready for action on that date or shortly before or after.

After that,  the Eclipse Seasons of Autumn 2013 and Spring 2014 will have us taking the ride in a most intense way, through this new era in our lives.

So for now, stay patient, prepare, and don’t let tides of emotions overwhelm you or get you fearful.

If you can process and clear the more negative emotions, you can be taken into some rather poetic and profound soul journeys, with new insights and breakthroughs, an expansion of consciousness, and greater empathy for others and your self.

Those soul openings will give you a better foundation for what you will build and engage in later.

The powers of transformation for us personally and in the greater world are quite strong now and in the near future.  For now this means inner growth, and later this will translate into a changing of our lives, a movement forward in our work, homes, families, and relationships.

In the greater world a young man Edward Snowden is making a powerful statement for doing what he believes is right, not what will benefit him personally.  He gave up a good job, a life of paradise in Hawaii, because he sincerely believed his country was doing wrong and spying on fellow Americans without their knowledge.

Many people in this world, somewhat understandably, will not fight against the system because they do not want to threaten the comfort of their lives.  They saw us going unjustly into Iraq, killing thousands of people and spending billions of dollars; they see our lives more and more controlled by huge corporations who have bought out our government representatives.  They see a growing Big Brother attitude of government, prying into our lives more and more through our social networks and communication systems, and potentially drone activity.

They see how truly difficult it really has become to change the system, to fight for what is right, to fight for fairness and justice.

Yet this young man shows courage and risks his own life for what he believes in. We have watched the USA government control nations all over the globe, as an Empire, to take away Snowden’s legal right to asylum.   We watched as western governments brought down an airplane that was occupied by the President of Bolivia, because they wrongly suspected Edward Snowden was on it.

This is important to the Empire because it wants to make this man an example, so no others can speak up and challenge the system.   In polls the mjority of citizens of the USA say he is a whistleblower not a traitor.   But of course what the people want and believe is not as important as keeping the security of the country and the power of the Empire.

And in Syria the American people also do not want to get more involved, by an overwhelming percentage in polls. But soon, make no mistake about it, a false flag incident or some other great excuse will be made to attack Syria.  More and more Senators are speaking out for that action now.

And in Egypt, the military performed a coup, which is against international law, to depose of the president Morsi.   And soon they will make his party, the Muslim Brotherhood, illegal again. Whether you like the Muslim Brotherhood or not, they were legally voted in by the people.

America will not call it a military coup, and neither will the United Nations.

The prize through all this is the resource filled, and strategically important Middle East. This is about power and control of the region, and soon it will degenerate into a huge war.

The Age of Aquarius demands equality, no superpowers.  The Age of Aquarius demands Diversity in Unity, liberation and freedom, a power to the people of the world, not kings and queens, or Big Brother governments, or mega corporations, not presidents or dictators.

The waves of change are getting stronger and are looking to move through the “Chakra System”, so to speak, of our Human Collective Consciousness. Just as with an individual person, there are blocks that need to be cleared, a releasing and healing of old patterns and wounds.  Just as with an individual, the issues that are locked up in the blocks come out in full force.

The goal is for the natural rays of the Universe, as it brings through new consciousness energies from the Aquarian Age, to not be impeded by the old toxic patterns and energies.

So expect there to be a powerful cleansing of our Human Condition and the resulting events that will be necessary to transform our lives.

For now, however, work in your own “inner kingdom”, so you will be cleansed and healed of old patterns and energies that keep you stuck in an ego that does not represent your true and authentic soul self.

As you more deeply connect with that authenticity, you connect with the Universe and its evolutionary passage into the Age of Aquarius.

See you next week,

Leo

Getting Through the Night and Astrology Forecast July 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on July 6, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The energies right now are rather difficult to handle and navigate for many people.  We are in the dark phase of the Moon, waiting for a New Moon on Monday;  Saturn’s rather heavy and “negative” vibes are strong as it is changing directions back to Direct this Monday; and Mercury is still Retrograde until July 20.  Additionally Jupiter in Cancer is beginning to form a soulful Grand Trine in water with Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces.

You may feel like you are slugging through the mud in your life. Things are either not moving at all or moving in a way that is stressful and feels negative at times.   It may be difficult as well to find solutions or clarity, and communication may feel blocked or foggy.

Sometimes we have to simply “hang in there” and wait for the energies to shift.

The first shift will be this Monday July 8, at the New Moon in Cancer, as Saturn actually begins to go Direct as well.

This New Moon will prompt us to move forward with a new lunar cycle beginning.   You will hopefully feel around this time at least a subtle shift forward and some relief.    New Moons bring new starts, and Saturn going back Direct is like Father Time starting the clock back ticking again.

Yet with Mercury still Retrograde and the Grand Trine in feeling oriented water signs, there will still not be any radical movement forward or much help in making big decisions or starting any big and important projects.

You may at least intuitively sense an arrow from the Universe pointing in a certain direction forward.  But please keep in mind that the best thing to do right now is to “process” our thoughts and feelings, not jump to conclusions, or leap into action.

Not jumping to conclusions might be really difficult now, as you may feel very strongly about something.    But feelings and thoughts now may be rather fluid and changeable with the Grand Trine in water, and Mercury Retrograde.

Remember that all big decisions need to be made “holistically”, meaning you want your mind and heart and body wisdom to be all on the same page, in agreement.   And with Mercury Retrograde and the water trine it may happen that things continue to shift back and forth for awhile, that new info or changed feelings alter one’s perceptions.

Some of you also may be feeling as if you have gone backwards, and are now dealing with old patterns of thought and behavior again, issues you were sure you had overcome.

If that is the case, do not judge yourself.  This is temporary and you will soon get back to your knowing the progress you have been making.

This is not an easy time for many people now to stay positive, confident, and trusting.  It is best to use this time to reflect and process, to get in touch with deeper feelings, with what is affecting you at deeper levels of mind and soul.   Getting to a bottom line, holding a rigid agenda, or being goal oriented will not work as well as usual.

So if you are feeling really stressed to find direction or move forward or make a decision, please wait unless you are truly ready to do so. I know how anxious many people get when they have to hold the tension while waiting for clarity or answers.  Do not let the pain of stress force you to jump before it is time.   Find a way to let go and relax as much as possible and to trust that what you need, when you need it, will come to you at the right time.

I know that may be difficult to do now as the heavy “negative” energies that breed fear and mistrust are strong now.  So we need to “go to another level” inside our psyches in order to be OK.

Remember that the “kingdom is within” and that a focus on finding your salvation outside your self is misguided now.

On July 20 Mercury will go direct and on August 6 there is a New Moon in fiery and creative Leo.   Wait if you can until those “milestones” of time before you go fast forward.

In the meantime use this New Moon in Cancer this Monday July 8 at 3:14 AM EDT to begin a month of being in a womb of protection.  In that womb you can nurture your self, go deeper inside your soul, and be around people you consider family, blood or otherwise. It is time to be around people who you can be your self with, who do not judge you or expect you to live up to their standards.

For a few days now, while Saturn is “in the air” with its its stern, serious, and sometimes grave attitudes, you will need more than usual a sense of feeling safe and loved.  The best use of Saturn now is to be disciplined, to face up to what you need to look at, to set up healthy boundaries, and to have patience.

It is true we are in powerfully transformational times, but sometimes we need to rest and recharge.  Do your best to find that time now.

In the greater world Egypt is breaking down again and shows us that it has not found its way yet.   What it is going through is reflective of the nature of change now.

There is a big wave wanting to bring liberation and freedom and “power to the people”.   This is the Aquarian Age getting stronger and stronger.  At the same time there is a powerful backlash, which seeks to control and dominate and slow down change.

In Egypt many are fighting for these freedoms and they have only recently begun to experiment with democracy and legitimate voting.  But their military is still the final word and dominant there. And yet more protests, more fighting, and the beginnings of civil war are breaking out.

In our own country the big story is of Edward Snowden and his leaking of government secrets, secrets of the USA spying in a kind of Big Brother way. At the same time there is desire to keep USA military security strong, hence the fear of information leaking.

If we truly want freedom and the responsibility that requires, do we not as citizens of this country and world want to know everything our leaders are deciding and doing?  Are we not the ones who ultimately must decide in an Aquarian Age of freedom, equality, Diversity in Unity, and governance by the people- not big government or big corporations.

So again liberation, freedom and “power to the people” runs against a strong desire to keep controls through dominance by government, corporations and military.

And liberation brings some chaos by its nature, and the backlash is to keep everything under control.

Remember this is what your personal transformation of consciousness and your life can look like.  There is a part of you wanting to be free of the controls over your life and you seek change to do so. And another part of you may be clinging tight to what is familiar and makes you feel secure.

Trust the process to show you the way, trust your inner light and the light of the Universe to guide your way.  Resist your ego taking over so you can feel in control.  You are here on this Earth in your body for a reason.

Your life is meaningful and your soul’s journey sacred.  Remember this and it becomes easier to trust and walk in alignment.

See you next week,

Leo
