Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 Begins and Astrology Forecast September 21-27.

The winds are shifting this coming week and picking up strength, bringing us the beginning of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.

We may begin to experience or at least feel these winds of change as early as Sunday when Mars squares Neptune.  Then on Monday September 22 at 10:29 PM EDT is the Autumn Equinox.

This year’s Autumn Equinox is more powerful then usual and promises a most intense Autumn season ahead.  That is so because Pluto will be changing directions from Retrograde to Direct less than two hours before the Equinox.

That means that Pluto’s energy and meaning will be a big part of what is felt and experienced surrounding the time of the Equinox.

Autumn Equinox is like the sunset time of the year, as the Sun is just beginning to come down for the year.    Light and dark minutes are equal at the Autumn Equinox, but right after that moment of equality dark minutes begin to increase as light minutes begin to wane.

The Yin energies get stronger, and colder darker times ahead can be felt.  And of course this is not just felt physically, as the holistic world we are in lets us know it is time to begin to feel more deeply emotionally and spiritually as well.

Since the Autumn Equinox also means that the Sun is moving into Libra for a month, we become more socially conscious and more relationship conscious at this time.  Our yang motivations to focus more on our self and our personal needs and personal growth are beginning to shift.

Now we realize and appreciate our needs to love and be loved, to make connection, to live more outside our personal bubble.  We may also, as is aligned with the coming darker and colder days, realize we need others in our life to feel truly warm and safe.

This year the Autumn Equinox may bring us to feel this shift more intensely and deeply, as Pluto is in the spotlight of our awareness.

Pluto, Guardian of the Underworld, brings up in a powerful way the “darker” feelings, thoughts, and secrets.  It sometimes quite powerfully or explosively brings up emotions or issues that we have suppressed and even repressed.

In relationship to others that means we may speak our minds in a more direct way, emotionally letting out that which we have previously held in.

In that process we are speaking our truth and hence empowering ourselves.  We may also be pushing the buttons of someone else and causing them to also say things in a more primal and direct manner.

This may cause a very intense and meaningful discussion that clears the air and either brings about a healing or more animosity toward one another.   Sometimes there is also a letting go of someone who is not right for you anymore.

In the greater world there is a possibility of a powerful world event around this time;  but if not now,  Pluto being a  part of the signature of Autumn 2014 promises us that important world events will happen definitely during the season at some time. The Middle East is still in the spotlight for potential events with Iraq and Syria, Islamic State and Israel.

This is a dark moon time early this week, bringing a New Moon in Libra on September 24 at 2:14 AM EDT.

After the lunar crescent is seen in the sky on the 25th, the energies of the New Moon in Libra truly take form. That means that words and intentions become more about “us” and “you” than “me” and ‘mine”.

It becomes easier to find connections in all sorts of ways;  and desires for beauty, refinement, and social graces get stronger.  Make sure, however, “not to give up the baby along with the bathwater”. That means you do not want to accommodate others so much that you are forgetting about your own needs.

Work things out with others now and truly listen, but make sure you balance that with standing your ground around your own integrity.  Pluto changing directions could cause some eruptions of “negative” emotions as part of the process of trying to work things out.  Libra usually brings more peace and harmony, but Pluto will bring more intensity than the usual Libra time of year.

Remember that Autumn Eclipse Season begins this week and it is just the beginning of a most powerful season ahead. There will be much movement soon in many ways.

Stuck energies do not stand much of a chance, old patterns will be challenged, new ways of thinking and acting will be breaking through.

You are in a New Chapter of your life, and whatever is in your life that does not fit into this new phase will need to be let go.  You may try to hold on, but that will only bring more pain and misery.

Though it may feel unsafe or insecure to let go, just allow your self to feel what it would be like to keep the status quo.  Would you feel trapped?  Would your heart and spirit be dimmed?

If what you are holding onto represents a disrespecting of your self, are you ready now to respect and love your self more by letting go of the old person or job or home or belief?

This could be a very important time this season to liberate your self from that which has chained your heart and soul and free spirit. It is time to move on.

To add to the shifting tides, Mercury will go Retrograde on October 4.  Then on October 8 is the first of two eclipses:  A New Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries.  This Eclipse makes a powerful T-square with Uranus and Pluto, bringing huge waves of healing and transformation.

Then on October 23 is a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio.    That Lunar cycle will take us to the New Moon in Sagittarius on November 22, a time when Autumn Eclipse Season comes to an end.

Time to Pause and Astrology Forecast August 17-23

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 16, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving down into the last quarter of the lunar cycle this week, and there are no “important” or very intense planetary movements right now.  Maybe we can take a break from so many great waves of change, and settle down a bit.

We are also in the last few days of Leo time of year before we enter the transition month between summer and autumn.   That transition begins later this week as the Sun moves into Virgo on Saturday the 23rd at 12:46 AM Eastern USA Time.

So if you have not gotten too beaten up by all the intensity from early this year through last week, perhaps you can find some time for fun this week.

Or maybe you will need the time to process all that has happened, to get deeper into your body and soul and do some healing.  Perhaps you will need this down time to make some completions, find some resolution, get a better understanding of all that has erupted in your life this year.

This year is an important year of transformation for our human species.  We are in a most powerful chapter of the transition between ages.   We are being “asked” to transform our lives and consciousness in alignment with the Age we are moving into.

To evolve one does not have to be “mean and lean”, does not necessarily mean being the strongest or the most intelligent.  Survival of the fittest is mostly about adaptability to change.

And right now adaptability is mostly about changing one’s consciousness to be in alignment with what the Age of Aquarius is demanding.  Those who still believe that the ones who have the most power or the most money or the most popularity will be the survivors – are off track as that kind will populate the zoos or be the dinosaurs of our future.

Those who believe in Love, who know we are all members of the same family, who respect those who are different from them,  who cherish the Earth, who learn to have empathy for others,  who know all in life is connected and meaningful, will evolve into our new world.  Jesus is said to have spoken that the “meek share inherit the Earth”.  Those who have peace in their hearts will help our Earth and our human family to heal and transform.

I know when you look around now at all the events in the world, it can be so frightening and tempt one to live in fear and become cynical.

Last week we had a well known member of our human family, one who was famous and rich hang himself- Robin Williams.

Buying into the cultural values and being successful on those terms does not make one happy or help one to better survive in the bigger picture.

What one develops in one’s heart and soul, in one’s “inner kingdom”, is where the key to being satisfied and evolving lies.

If you are fearful, depressed, self loathing, untrusting, then you will find misery and you will not truly grow and evolve on a deeper level.  This does not mean you should judge or blame yourself or others for being in that sad state. But you do need to take responsibility for your inner health.

And it does mean that going within and finding your true self, finding inner peace, finding love and truth, will help you most on your life journey.

This does not mean that money or success or popularity are bad, and in fact they can make life easier and more enjoyable.

But without the inner values, those things will be empty and you may never feel you have enough of them.

And without the intention for your  consciousness evolving now, beyond what the conventional world has programmed you to believe and be, you will not be open to the signs that show you your true path of soul evolution.

If you are becoming who others want you to be, you are losing your Self and your health and moving off your soul’s path.

One of the benefits of these transformational times is that the parts of your life that are inauthentic are revealed to you when things break down, so you can see the light again and change direction.

Powerfully transformative Uranus and Pluto will continue making exact square to one another, which has been happening since 2012, through Spring 2015- and will continue to bring transformational energy even after that.

The last time Uranus and Pluto made major exact aspect to one another was in 1965-66 when they were conjunct.  This brought on the ’60s revolution, but of course that revolution stretched into the ’70s.

The next exact square between Uranus and Pluto is in December this year 2014.  And that will be at the end of the autumn, finishing off another Eclipse Season, this time Autumn Eclipse Season 2014. 

The beginning waves of this Eclipse Season will be felt in mid September and the first actual eclipse will be on October 8, a Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries. That will be followed by a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 23.

Uranus and Pluto will be making a Cardinal T-square with  that Aries Lunar Eclipse, a formation almost as powerful as a Grand Cross.

But for now as we enter the last quarter Moon in Taurus this Sunday the 17th, do your best to chill and recharge your heart “batteries”.

Late Sunday/early Monday Jupiter conjuncts Venus in Leo, to bring more joy and hope to you along with the light and airy Moon in Gemini at that time.

Later in the week, after the Moon goes into feeling oriented Cancer from Wednesday through most of Friday, there are relatively minor aspects involving Uranus, Pluto, and Mars in Scorpio.  That should bring more intensity, but nothing to shake you up too much.

See you next week,

Leo

Finishing up the Autumn Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast November 17-23.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 16, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Sunday November 17 at 10:16 AM ushers in a strong Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon.   This Full Moon brings a potential resolution and/or climax to what was opened up at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on November 3.

In fact this lunation brings with it a potential resolution for the whole Autumn Eclipse season.    Between this Full Moon and the next New Moon in Sagittarius on December 2, there should be clarity and a sense of direction gained after all the intensity and shakeup of Autumn Eclipse Season 2013.

This Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus is not an easy one for many people, and the energies may feel dark or heavy at times, and there may also be an intensity that affects our relationships and attitudes.  For some there may be inner or relational “tugs of war” as we work out issues from recent times and get ready to move into new phases of our life.

Though this week may not bring much upliftment, we are given the opportunity to get ourselves back “together” again.

The eclipses, Uranus/Pluto, and Mercury Retrograde  tended to shake things up, reveal what has been held back or covered up, have us rethink our positions or beliefs, and perhaps even shift our direction.

Now with the Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon giving signature to our coming week, we are brought to an inner place of needing to be more real and practical, more in touch with a grounded sense of what may have been previously only known in our intellects.

With so many planets now in Scorpio or Earth signs like Virgo, it has been “cleanup time” both in our physical world and our inner emotional reality.    It has been and continues to be a time to release old “stuff” in our homes, bodies, and our consciousness.   This cleanup will help us to open ourselves to new experience and new adventures in our lives.

For now use this week and the waning Moon that begins after the Full Moon on the 17th, to come down to reality, to find the truth, and to repair or release what has broken down.

If you have been getting more clarity since Mercury went back Direct on November 10, that clarity will be more full as Mercury this week gets back to speed.

If you feel there has been some dis-illusion over the last several weeks, perhaps some awakening and enlightenment has accompanied this loss of illusion.   Accepting our selves and our lives as they are in reality builds a foundation built on truth.

From that place of truth, you can then use inspiration and positive energies to bring you the life that actualizes your full authentic potential.

You do not have to “live in a dream world” to be happy.   Often our creation of a fantasy world inside is a direct compensation for the pain, suffering and abuse we have experienced.

But if we truly want to transform our abuse patterns, our feelings of victimization, our low self esteem and expectation of failure, we need to release those pain patterns, but also the illusions that were created to help us “get through the night”.

Those two opposite attitudes are two sides of the same coin, and our soul’s transformation and healing journey needs release of the whole pattern.

So let this week bring you to more cleaning out and more facing of deeper realities.   But to balance some of the “gravity”, there will be some upliftment toward the end of the week, as the Sun goes into Sagittarius late on Thursday November 21.

Sagittarius is like a fireplace lit brightly on a dark night.   It is a mutable fire sign that inspires, brings meaning and faith, and expands our perspective to give a bigger picture.

Sagittarius seeks answers and a “certain way”, and expects people to take the “higher ground” to lead upstanding lives.  It does attempt to see the best in people and life, and usually has strong opinions of how things should be.  It loves to learn “higher knowledge”, philosophy or spirituality especially, and loves taking new adventures that bring that knowledge.

Like all signs it has its weaknesses too.  Sag trusts its intuition and can leap into situations it regrets later.  It can also, as a genuine and spontaneous expresser, say things it later regrets.   Also it can be so uplifted and excited as a free spirit that it loses its grounding and forgets it is in a body.   Also it can sometimes not understand how people can do things or have attitudes other than the idealistic way Sag envisions.

When the Moon joins the Sun in Sagittarius on December 2, that will bring a New Moon in Sagittarius, and then we will all be prompted to new inspirations and adventures, to finding meaning and solutions, to seeing our lives from a wider perspective, with positive thoughts and feelings and greater faith. That will bring us into a new chapter beyond the Autumn Eclipse Season.

New events will be the result, based on our experiences during the Autumn Eclipse Season.

Also around the time of the New Moon in Sagittarius there will be a new comet, Comet Ison, making its appearance in our human Earth world. It may be quite bright or have faded and died from its close encounters with the Sun.

If it is a meaningful Comet appearance, we can expect world events both spectacular and powerful.

The issue of Iran and the world’s powers coming together over Iran’s nuclear program will be front and center.  What happens with that issue will greatly affect the Middle East and the world, especially Israel.

Ironically and hypocritically, the powers who are negotiating with Iran to rid itself of even the possibility of creating nuclear weapons, all have such weapons. Even Israel has nuclear weapons of mass destruction.

Of course the only reality that would truly help our world is that all of these countries rid themselves of weapons of mass destruction, not just Iran and Syria.

We are moving faster and faster into an Age of Aquarius, and it is essential in that journey for the idea of “us versus them”, of survival of the fittest struggles to have what you want for your self at the expense of others- to end.

We are moving inexorably into a world of equality, of Diversity in Unity, of liberation. Power and responsibility for the world will shift to be in the hands of “the people”.

This is our world, not a world to be run by the rich and entitled.

Events will continue to erupt in out world that bring us all to know we are all ONE Family, no matter our differences. And only then will we heal ourselves and our sacred Earth in the Age of Aquarius.

See you next week,

Leo

Powerful Transformation and Astrology Forecast October 27- November 2

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are entering an important time period now.   The centerpiece of this time period, in the midst of Autumn Eclipse Season 2013, will be from October 30- November 6.    Within that time frame is an exact Uranus/Pluto square on November 1 and a Hybrid Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on November 3.

The power of the “underworld”, where deep transformation brews, will be at its most powerful.    Pluto mythologically is the Guardian of the Underworld, Hades.    Pluto is the planet most affiliated with the sign Scorpio, which will hold the energy for the Solar Eclipse.

Mercury Retrograde is also in Scorpio now and at the time of the coming Solar Eclipse. And of course the Uranus/Pluto aspect on November 1 includes the Underworld Guardian as well.  There are a lot of strong and mysterious energies to hold now.

This week on October 31-November 1 is Samhain, commonly known in modern times as Halloween.     Our ancestors knew that every year at this time, which is approximately mid way between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice, that the veil “between worlds” is the thinnest and most permeable.

We are able to lift the lid from the inner dimension and make contact with frequencies and spirits from “down under”.    It is more common at this time of year to do double takes on certain spots in our sight, as we may glance at movement of spirits, but not able to see them clearly.

It is a good time for psychic feelings, and also for contacting those who have died.  Deeper emotions are also more accessible now.

But do not let the “pull downward” into your deeper feelings upset you. It is normal now to feel deeper emotions, maybe even thoughts of times past that you have heretofore pushed into the darker corners of your psyche.

It may be time to resurrect those memories so you can integrate a part of who you have been,  back into your awareness.    That which has been suppressed, especially so-called “negative” thoughts or emotions, may need to be exposed again so you can heal some part of your self or relationship.

Just after Samhain is the Uranus/Pluto square on November 1 and then the Solar Eclipse on November 3.

This Uranus/Pluto exact square is the 4th of 7 exact passes between them. The last pass will be in March of 2015.  The most powerful pass will be in April of 2014, when Uranus and Pluto are part of a Grand Cross alignment that will make an almost exact aspect to the USA natal Sun.  Two Eclipses will also be activated that month.

Of course you know that the last major meeting of Uranus and Pluto was in 1965-66, and it ignited the ,60s revolution and evolution.  They were conjunct midway through Virgo back then.  That started the current Uranus/Pluto cycle, and now the revolution and evolution begun at that time goes to the next level, at a much more accelerated pace again.

The Hybrid Total Solar Eclipse is on Sunday November 3 at 7:50 AM Eastern Standard Time, in fact the first day after we turn our clocks back. That Solar Eclipse should be visible here on the east coast, but not so in western USA time zones.  Those in southern Europe and Africa will also be able to view this eclipse.    It is Hybrid because it will not be a Total eclipse everywhere and at all times.

This eclipse should cause a powerful shakeup of the status quo. Emotional intensity will be increasing as we get closer and closer to the actual event.   Intensity could stay strong days afterward.

Previously held secrets are being exposed, like the NSA spying on USA allies, such as Germany.   More secrets could be exposed, and perhaps some in your personal life as well. Emotions and events from the usually hidden “underworld” will emerge and cause us to shift our consciousness and perhaps our lives as well.

We will experience that which has been previously controlled, and in some cases inner demons will be released so they can be worked with, expressed and let go of.

Being polite will tend to give way to being being authentic and real.  It will be more difficult to be phony or pretentious.  It will also be easier now to see people’s “darker” side and ulterior motives, but remember that sometimes what looks to be real is actually the result of being a bit paranoid.     Check things out before jumping to conclusions.

Also be careful not to have explosions of temperament, explosions which will burn bridges of trust between you and others. Express authentically but watch out for how much you might be hurting someone’s feelings.

This is a time of potential empowerment and renewed passion, so trust the process now to take you there, even if it gets a bit “ugly” sometimes.

In the greater world, Pandora’s Box of  held back truths will tend to open up.

Our weak economy will likely be more exposed, and in foreign affairs issues with Syrian, Iran, and Israel will likely intensify. Israel is very unhappy with the apparently changing relationship between Iran and Syria- with the United States.   Israel could potentially make an attack on Iran around this Solar Eclipse or at the next New Moon in Sagittarius on December 2.

If neither the economy or the Middle East go into serious crisis during the Autumn Eclipse Season lasting into early December, then I believe we will get a “pardon” until late winter or spring 2014. Of course other powerful world events may happen during this current Eclipse Season.  The powerful planetary movements now make difficult aspect to President Obama’s natal chart.   He will be under great stress and challenge. He is in my estimation part of a bridge from one age to the next.  He has much of both Ages in his soul, and as he goes back and forth he becomes hard to read.

The old world, the old age, the old paradigm are dying as they do not provide our human family a fair, just, loving,  competent structure to live and work within.   Our children and future generations will need a new structure and paradigm, one where all our human family is able to live a quality life. The vast disparity between super rich and poor is not serving our human family.   Wars that are mostly about greed and power do not serve our human family.

We are ready to transform our world, but first we each need to de-program ourselves as to what is “normal”.  We are told that the way it is- is how it has always been- and always will be.  We are taught that life is random, not truly meaningful. We are taught that we live in a world of survival of the fittest, every man for himself or his own family or nation or religion.

Us against Them is what we have been programmed to believe and of course we act that belief out.

It is a time of great change upon us.  Just as we learned that we live in a round world, not a flat one; we are now ready to metaphorically know that same reality in other areas of our life.

Round creates circles and circles are wholeness or unity.    A flat world is a world of straight lines of separation.  We are all one, one family.  All the differences can be encompassed in a circle of unity, like the Moon or Sun or the Yin/Yang symbol.

Nature and the Universe show us the unity through these symbols, and now it time for us to live that way here on Earth with our brothers and sisters in every part of this world. Diversity in Unity is the Age of Aquarius.   Our path on the circle has almost entered that Age, but rocky roads we will need to collectively walk before we arrive.

See you next week,

Passing Storms and Astrology Forecast December 2-8.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 1, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Mercury is back direct, the eclipse storms have passed.     It was quite an intense time, begun at the Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus when Hurricane Sandy blew in severe winds of change to the USA east coast.     The very intense Presidential Election came next, then the War in Gaza on the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio.  The economy has showed signs of distress.  Many personal lives and psyches were shook up also.

Then at the last eclipse this last week, a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius/Gemini, Palestine was overwhelmingly accepted by UN vote as a “state“.     Only a few nations voted against this, very notably and disturbingly the USA, Israel, and Canada.   As we have been letting you know, what happens in the Middle East is extremely important for our human family as we transition into an Aquarian Age.

Israel is likely to punish the Palestinians for asking to be admitted into the UN.   At the same time volatility and instability in Egypt and Syria, and other Mideast places promises more big eruptions there.    The Old World’s paradigm is very prevalent there, far away from the New Age values of  love, Diversity in Unity, equality, liberation, and self determination.    And remember because of oil and geopolitical strategies, much of the world is invested in how this region turns.

In our personal lives and consciousness, there is a letdown now after the great intensities of the eclipses.  Some will tend to be depressed now, especially so as we head downward through the darkest days of the year leading to the Winter Solstice and the end of the Mayan Calendar.

There is much to process and sort through after the eclipses, as we are on the wind-down phase of the Eclipse Season, which will end at the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 13, as liberating Uranus goes direct that day also.

But as we sort through the rubble after the eclipse storms, some are more unsure than ever where their lives are headed, as the eclipses broke them out of their “normal” rhythms and mind-frames and shook things up.   Now the old chapter is more obviously over.    But  for many the new chapter has not been defined yet.

Some people now know their relationship or job or home life has changed, ended or about to end.  Perhaps an old way of perceiving things has ended, an old illusion is seen for what it really is.  Now what?

For some there is growing clarity about what is coming next, as they experienced breakthroughs into new ideas,  a new sense of direction for their lives.

But for others there is much more to process, to understand before moving forward.   This coming week, Mercury will have started to move close to its normal speed, and out of the Mercury Storm period.  The Eclipses will be seen more clearly in the rear view mirror and we will start to recover and be ready to move forward.

Do your best now not to jump to conclusions too fast.   You are still in the aftermath of the eclipses and need time to brush your self off, and spend some time to ruminate and reflect, to go deeper inside to find your center again.

From that inner source you will be ready to see and experience the messages and intuitions that will light your way.

This coming week we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle, waiting for a strong New Moon the next week on December 13 in Sagittarius.   The last quarter Moon in Virgo begins this coming Thursday December 6, so energies after that will move even more inward and yin-ward, begging you to contact your inner compass and feel your feelings. Since that Moon will be in Virgo, it is also a time to clean up, fix what needs to fixed, healed and repaired, and prepare  your self for new beginnings after the New Moon in Sagittarius.

We are also in the “dark of the sun” period also, as we move to the darkest day of the year on December 21, 2012 at the Winter Solstice.

This also is the day of the ending of the Mayan Calendar.  I remember back in August of 1987, being in Berkeley California and meditating at the Harmonic  Convergence, which was the beginning of the countdown to December 21 2012.  We all began to  think then about the ending of the Mayan Calendar. It seemed so far away.

Much of the New Age was begun then, as people saw that 2012 date as the beginning of the New World.   I have always resonated with this Mayan Calendar to some degree, but of course mostly have been attuned to the planetary aspects of the Transformational planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, as I consider them the emissaries of the Aquarian Age, which is my yardstick for a New World.

And from 2012-2015 Uranus will square Pluto, which will shake up our old world and open new portals into the Aquarian Age.  The reverberations of those Uranus/Pluto meetings will last years after the 2015 exact squares.  Remember that in 1965-66 Uranus was conjunct Pluto, and this brought in the ’60s revolution, which lasted several years after the conjunction.

And now we will be experiencing the same kind of timing.  The waves of the Uranus/Pluto square and other supporting planetary aspects over these next few years will spread into the 2020’s.

The ride into a New World does not end on December 21, 2012.  But it is a marking point that must be important as so many of us have put so much into visualizing a better world in anticipation for it.  We have gone through years of healing, transformation, and making our minds, bodies, and souls more healthy.

The planets keep turning after the Mayan Calendar ends.   There is much more life to come. Do not expect three days of darkness or a great shifting of the poles that day,as many have predicted. We will not all be miraculously holding hands in a perfectly unified world that day.  We will not all be moving into a new dimension or ascending all at once.

But this will be a time to be a part of a great shift, an internal turn to unity consciousness, to a better sense of Diversity in Unity.  But you will need to be proactive in the process, joining with others, and/or meditating, perhaps doing ceremony, chanting or drumming.

Some will want to feel this alone, and perhaps it will be only a subtle shift for them. Some will make light of it, and see or feel nothing. Many will be disappointed that the world is not breaking down that day,  or that the world will not obviously be a much better place to live in right away.

Don’t expect too much or better yet do not expect anything.    Be centered inside your self and let it all unfold naturally.  Of course we are co-creating our new world, so prayer, visualization, and strong intention can certainly make a big difference.

You can see this as a major turning point on our voyage into an Aquarian Age.   But it is certainly not the end of the world, and not yet the end of the world as we know it.  But we are certainly in the process of moving through the end of the world as we know it, into an Aquarian Age.

See you next week,

No Problem, Only Solutions and Astrology Forecast November 18-24

We are right in the middle of the Eclipse Season Autumn 2012.   The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio brought increased intensity to our lives, and deeper feelings and passions have been surfacing. If you are like many of us, disagreements came up in our friendships and relationships, some very intense and sometimes even nasty. Hopefully you used these conflicts to better understand your self and one another, to clear the air, to find healing.

But in other cases, deep resentments and bitterness came out, and people realized that their relationship or friendship is not good anymore.  And in the greater world, passions intensified, and conflict blew open into ugly war.

As we have been alerting you, the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio would bring a most powerful eruption in the Middle East, and that was a war between Palestinian Hamas and Israel.  This can potentially become a regional Middle East war, as Syria, Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon and Iran could become involved.   Scorpio brings primal passions, New Moons bring fires of ignition, and Solar Eclipses bring at least 10 times more power than the usual New Moon.

CIA director Petraeus has also became involved in a Scorpionic drama of secrets, sex, and perhaps a cover-up in the Libyan murders of 4 Americans, a drama that blew up big around the Scorpio Eclipse.

And as we also alerted you, the economy has shown much trouble- with low corporate earnings, a fiscal cliff to deal with, and a rapidly falling stock market. These issues, along with the problems in Europe, make it clear our world wide economic system needs deep transformation.

The natural disasters I warned about did not happen in any big way last week, but we can definitely expect to see more of them before the eclipse season ends. Of course Hurricane Sandy brought in the first big waves of the Eclipse Season.

All these events are bringing us through the transition between ages, and setting us up for a potentially big shift as the Mayan Calendar ends on December 21, 2012.

We also have written the last couple of weeks about the culture wars in the USA, which seems like a brewing Civil War, with state participants similar to those during the Civil War of 1861-1865.  Lincoln was president then. Obama, who may be his reincarnation, is president now. Whether he is or isn’t, the similarities are striking, even little things like both came from Illinois and Obama insisted on using the same velvet covered Bible that Lincoln used for his presidential inauguration for his own inauguration.

And of course you noticed all the states that have made petition to secede from the United States since Obama was reelected?   Over 700,000 people from mostly southern states have already signed, and states like Texas already have enough signatures to bring their petition to the President. What happens after that I do not know. But with an African American President now, knowing that states during the Civil War were seceding because they wanted to keep slavery in the south, does it not at least seem like some kind of repeating of history or coming full circle is going on?

We in the USA are obviously at a major crossroads in our collective journey.   As we leave an old age to enter an Aquarian Age,  what will happen to our nation?   With our natal Moon in Aquarius, we have a Bill or Rights, Constitution, and core set of values that are about  liberation, equality,self determination, and Diversity in Unity, which resonates with the sign Aquarius and the New Age.

But superpowers are not equal members of the world body, and all peoples- not just Americans- need to be free, and equal, and self determining.   And our whole world needs to be honored as diverse, yet equal and in Unity.  And invading other nations, colonizing and dominating, and wanting them to have our same democracy, capitalism, and way of life is against our core principles.

And haven’t our big Government and Big Corporate institutions taken away our individual freedoms and power of the people here and around the world?

The big changes coming our way are meant to help all of us to release the toxins and blocks that hold us back from fully embracing our New World.

As events swirl into your own life during this eclipse season, open to new consciousness.  Sometimes every way one looks there are apparent stop signs and no potential choice seems right.   But first of all one needs patience and trust, and to believe there is a way, even if it does show yet.

John Lennon sang in one of his last songs, ” no problem, only solutions”.  Meditate on that, there is much truth in that statement in new world consciousness.  When we come up on a challenging situation or event, it is best to look at it as the Universe bringing us a situation that is meaningful for us. It is bringing up issues that need to dealt with, so we can release what is no longer working for us, and open us to new possibilities.

Sometimes we think we are stuck because we are having difficulty letting go of something or some ingrained idea in our head.  Perhaps it is time to let go or release, but our fears and practical concerns hold us back.  Can you trust that if you make a decision based on where the signs and symbols are pointing for you to go, that all will turn out for the best?

” No problem, only solutions”, so there is a way to go that is right for you, and not only right for you but for all concerned.  But that way may not satisfy our ego controls, selfish desires, or security fears.

So when you visualize or pray, ask that you will be shown- by symbols, signs and synchronicities- to the way that is best in the bigger picture for ALL CONCERNED. And the answers you receive might not be what tradition or conventional world “wisdom” believes.  Go outside the boxes and straight to your deeper soul and the Universe.  There true wisdom lies.  There is a way to go that is in the best higher interest of everyone, though in the little picture it may seem bad.

And keep in mind that mind and heart integrity is essential, as sometimes people can see symbols and signs and synchronicities through rose colored glasses or perhaps through the lens of fear.  It is essential that you look with an objective vision, without attaching to any certain way. This does not mean you cannot make intention and co-create with the Universe. But it does mean you respect what is eventually determined by source and deeper soul.

So be flexible during this Eclipse Season, and “listen carefully” to what your deeper soul is showing you that you are ready to listen to.   Let go of old ways that are ripe to be picked off your tree of security.  There are many new ways of seeing and experiencing life now.

In the greater world dramas and in your personal life, new revelations will bring dis-illusion, so you can see the truth.   Though painful at first, these truths will set you free from the old paradigm, and open you to the consciousness and ways of the Aquarian Age.

We have another Eclipse coming on November 28, the week after Thanksgiving here in the USA. It will be a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius/Gemini.  It will also be quite strong, especially so because Mars will be conjunct Pluto then, triggering the Uranus/Pluto revolutionary square.

We are in powerful revolutionary and evolutionary times, more powerful than the ’60s.    All is meant to get better and better, though pain and ugly world events are part of the process sometimes.

This coming week, in between the two eclipses, will be still powerful; but hopefully a bit more tame.  The Sun moves into Sagittarius this coming Wednesday the 21st bringing rising spirits, inspiration, a renewed sense of higher meaning,  and a stronger need to find solution. On Thursday the Sun squares Neptune helping us to surrender, go with the flow, and enter deeper soul realms.  

On Friday Mars squares Uranus, breaking open anything that has been closed down, and taking us outside any boxes that limit our view and experience. This also triggers the Uranus/Pluto square, and brings all the world events to another level of intensity.

And please keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde, until November 26, so stay centered and aware, and do not jump to conclusions. Making major decisions is more precarious now, and signing contracts can go bad.  The eclipses are bringing energies that can take us off our normal balance, and making bad decisions while Mercury is still Retrograde.

This does not mean you should be superstitious or fearful; it only means you should realize that perceptions can be off.

See you next week,

Leo

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio and Astrology Forecast November 11-17

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 10, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

Well finally the Presidential election is over.  Obama has won and many people I know are quite happy now. Some were upset when I wrote several weeks ago that I felt, according to an astrological formula I use, that Romney had a slight edge to win.

This formula is based on matching the candidates’ charts with upcoming planetary aspects and the USA natal chart.  Important aspects that will also make aspect to the USA chart, like the Uranus/Pluto square from 2012-2015, would require in my view, strong connections with the chart of the president. This is obviously because it is unlikely that someone so prominent in the world would not be connected to aspects that will change the world.  And this formula has always worked for me almost perfectly, for over 20 years. I knew Obama and McCain would be candidates and Obama would likely win long before either was a strong candidate.

But this time neither candidate was strongly connected to the Uranus/Pluto square, which is such a powerful symbol of transformation for our country, as it will make close aspect to the USA Sun during the next few years.  So I looked for more minor aspects, and believed Romney had a slight advantage.

However, when Mercury went into its “storm period”, which is when it is slowing down before it goes retrograde, the tide turned.  Mercury goes into its storm about a week or so before it goes retrograde, and perceptions begin to change already.    In this case, Mercury went into its storm around the time the actual storm of Sandy blew into America.  And a powerful Full Moon was happening at the same time.

Those aspects, connected to that storm, began to change perceptions. President Obama began to look especially presidential in handling the storm and Governor Christie of New Jersey and and Mayor Bloomberg of New York showed much appreciation of President Obama.  When I wrote last week’s forecast I wrote how I felt that the winds had turned in favor of President Obama, who I believe may be a reincarnation  of Abraham Lincoln, our president during the Civil War of 1861-1865.  And I stated a new civil war is brewing in America now, largely with huge disagreements between values of the North and South , and perhaps we need Lincoln again.

But still I have been wondering why President Obama does not have any natal planets making major aspect to the Uranus/Pluto square. He does have Saturn in Scorpio making a square to his Sun, which is a very difficult aspect, which is close at the time of his inauguration, and exact in the autumn of 2013. And there are two eclipses at that time which are very close to planets in his natal chart, but not much of importance after 2013.

So then I started thinking how Lincoln was assassinated during his presidency. Then I looked at some coincidences.  Lincoln began his presidency in 1861. Obama was born 100 years later in 1961.  And John Kennedy, who was also assassinated, began his presidency in 1961, the year Obama was born and exactly 100 years from when Lincoln began his presidency.   Kennedy and Lincoln were both very involved with civil rights for Black people, during times when that was of urgent importance in America.  And of course most people know the other odd coincidences between Kennedy and Lincoln, like both had Vice Presidents named Johnson, one of whom was born in 1808 and the other in 1908; Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy and Kennedy’s secretary named Lincoln. Google it and you will find many more such connections between them.

So now there appears to be a connection between Lincoln, who freed the slaves; Kennedy who helped lead the Civil Rights movement; and Obama who is the product of those breakthroughs as the first African American President. It makes no difference if they are all the same soul, reincarnated, or not.  They all indeed are very connected.

And why was President Obama not fully present at that first debate? Was his soul reluctant to meet his future destiny while winning the presidency?   And why has this stoic man been crying so much just before and just after this election?

I am very concerned his fate is the same as Lincoln and Kennedy. And if so I believe this would happen next autumn or shortly before or after.  Is this a part of the great transformational change for America coming our way?  Is another Pisces Age martyrdom necessary to transform our country into an equal member of the Aquarian Age we are moving into? In future installments I will further analyze why I believe Obama may be the reincarnation of Lincoln, a man he admires and often quotes, and look deeper into his possible fate, and into whether we can change that potential fate with our co-creation with the Universe.

So now as I write this we are in a dark Moon phase, awaiting a most strong New Moon, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio.  This will begin a lunar cycle that will include a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius/Gemini on November 28 and a Mars’ triggering of the Uranus/Pluto square on November 27.  Mercury will be retrograde most of that time.  

And then the next Lunar cycle will begin with a Sagittarius New Moon on December 13, which happens on the same day as liberating Uranus changes directions. This free spirited beginning to that new lunar cycle will bring us through the Mayan Calendar ending on December 21, 2012.

The Solar Eclipse in Scorpio will be this coming Tuesday November 13 at 5:08 PM EST.  It will be about strong new beginnings, and the emphasis will be about emotional releases, renewed intensity and passion, primal expressions, trusting one’s instincts, and revealing previously held emotions or secrets.  Pandora’s box will begin to open and we will be dealing with issues that were previously kept under wraps.

It will be a good time to get involved in the mysteries, psychologically, spiritually, and otherwise.  You will find your self going deeper inside your mind, heart, feelings, and psyche.  You will find it more difficult holding back what you truly feel at the core of your being. It will be a time of powerful release of old emotional fecal matter, so you can embrace a renewed life.  Scorpio takes us deep into the bowels of our soul, and brings up old matters that have been blocking our path.  We then often have a Phoenix Rising type of rebirth that thrusts us forward in our life journey.

So the Eclipses will take you out of your usual balance and comfort zone, and make it easier to let go of the past and embrace the future. And because Mercury will still be retrograde, it is more likely that people, emotions, and issues from the past will return. This will help you to end phases of your life that are ending, and for some to come full circle before moving forward again.

In the greater world, issues of the economy and its weaknesses will come front and center into our awareness.  Before the year is out we will be reminded of how vulnerable our economic system is, and how much in debt our country remains.  We may be taken to an edge of economic danger as politicians argue how best to balance the budget and get our system in better shape.   We will eventually need a deep transformation of our whole economic system.

Natural disasters are also likely to continue during the Eclipse Season, as Mother Nature is an important part of our Healing and Transformation journey.

The Middle East is quite a tinder box also, as the civil war in Syria continues, as tensions with Iran mount, as Libya remains in the spotlight of concerns about cover-up. Israel is in a much more precarious position since the Arab Spring has broken down previous walls of restraint and brought more power to Muslim organizations, as in Egypt. Israel may feel like a cornered animal and feel it needs to strike.  If it ended its oppression of the Palestinian peoples, however, it would likely ease the hatred felt in the Arab world, but this is unlikely to happen.

Secrets revealed, and sexual issues are also very Scorpionic in nature, and the resigning by CIA director Patraeus because of an extramarital affair fits perfectly. Other such events are likely.

Everything will not be about disaster, however.    Things are opening up from a very deep level of our collective consciousness.   We are learning that we can connect in ways we never imagined.   Souls all over the Earth and beyond our Earth are connected by a Unity of Soul and Mind. It is getting easier to remove the restraints and limitations, and to find the frequencies of communication and connection with other souls, alive and dead, worldly and otherworldly.

Secrets about Visitations from beings outside our “normal” world will be coming into the light soon.   The connections between our dreams and other worlds will be more evident. We as a human race have made such leaps of progress on the material plane. It is now time to make progress on the other planes, spiritual planes, and consciousness planes of existence.

So this is becoming a wonder-full and challenging time to be alive, all at the same time. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

See you next week,

Leo
