As we passed through the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon last week, we entered the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12.

This has been for many people a very difficult last few weeks.  Besides the two eclipses, we have also experienced Mars and Mercury both going Retrograde.

This is a time of inner reflection, of dealing with inner demons and old patterns and stories that are needing to be addressed, resolved, and/or released.

It has been, and continues to be, a ripe time to revisit these old stories, and in the process to find breakthroughs to new ways of seeing those old patterns or stories.

And those breakthroughs can show us to positive transformation for the betterment of our souls and lives.

Nevertheless, being brought back to old stories can seduce us into making decisions or moves that are not appropriate to the current situation.

It is best, in most cases, to hold back from making big decisions or starting new ventures.  It is not the time to act, but instead a time to internally work through the issues.

Many have, through the intensity of these eclipses, experienced these big breakthroughs; but it is more than just eclipses in themselves that have been triggering these transformational times.

The strength of Pluto and Uranus within the last two eclipse formations has provided more power of transformation and awakenings.

So even through the intense difficulties many have experienced these last few week,  in the bigger picture it is all part of deep transformation and change necessary for our growth and evolution.

The Age of Aquarius is calling us all to transform our consciousness, beliefs, and ways in order to be aligned with this New Age.

The only “enemy” in this process is our fear. It is natural to have fear, but it is not good to give in to fear as our master.

Fear takes many forms, but at the core fear takes over when we no longer trust we live in a meaningful Universe that brings us situations that here for a reason.

Do we ultimately follow Love and Truth or Fear?

It is true that even the most spiritual of us have dark nights of the soul when we feel “spirit” has abandoned us or we have abandoned “spirit”.

But in time we have awakenings or “rebirths” that bring us back on our spiritual paths.

It is so easy now to fall victim to fear, as our world seems to be falling apart from our better values.

This falling apart, which will get more intense, is part of the process of transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

I know many of you have experienced a falling apart of your personal lives before, and know that was just part of the process of transformation into a life more aligned with who you really are and are growing into.

And our world and country are going through that now. The big split between cultures in America, which resembles the Civil War in essence, is part of this transformational process that will ultimately make us more whole in alignment with a New Age.

And ending the notion of being superior to other cultures or countries is part of that transformation, as there is no room for superpower countries in the Age of Aquarius..

Empires began at the beginning of the Age of Pisces, in the form of the Roman Empire.  Now for the Age of Aquarius, we are letting go of the world controlling Empires.

Diversity within Unity requires the world to transform into one of more equality between nations and cultures.

The USA Empire of its Military/Economic Complex is dissolving and will hopefully in the process come back to its better values and principles.

And it is thus easy to see how the Trump influence is actually helping the process of the Empire’s downfall. Yes there will still be mammoth attempts to keep the power going, and some of that will likely be quite oppressive to our liberties.

And during this process of American transformation, the impeachment of President Trump is intensifying and becoming more serious.  What Trump does to distract this process is of great concern.

But keep the faith that in the bigger picture all is aligned with the cycles of the Universe..

In the greater world the Middle East is on the verge of igniting into greater conflict.  Gaza was erupting last week, Syria was intensifying, and Iran is now squarely in the cross-hairs of USA and Israel sights.

The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius fell right on Israel’s natal Moon in Leo.  Mars was in opposition to that Natal Moon. The signs point to that Lunar Eclipse as an important turning point for Israel.

And transformation of Israel, Palestine and the greater Middle East is important to the transformation of our world into the Age of Aquarius.

Many of the first known civilizations and world wide religions were birthed in the Middle East.  So it is understood why that area of the world is needing of transformation out of old paradigms that run much of the world. The way Israel oppresses the Palestinians is so common to the old age.  And of course Israel was often at the other end of these abuses of power.

As we stated earlier, we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12. And Mars and Mercury are still retrograde.

Now we await the third and last eclipse of Summer Eclipse Season 2018:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11.

Though at that time Mercury will still be retrograde until August 18/19 and Mars will still be retrograde until August 27, there still will be much push for new beginnings at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in fiery Leo.

The big dominating egos on the world stage will be emerging.  Matches will tend to be lit by them, creating world conflict.

In our personal lives however, it is more likely that this Leo Solar Eclipse will ignite creative passions and open hearts.

It will signify a time of new starts and action taken in this New Chapter of your life.

Of course the actual actions may wait in many instances until Mercury and Mars have settled into their Direct positions.

So there is still much time now to go within your psyche and soul, to find out what you really want (Mars) and what you really think (Mercury).

And that Mars in Retrograde will be triggered this week as it squares Uranus, which is slowing down to go Direct next week.  That means there may be a turning point in your quest to know what you want and where you want to go.  But do your best not to run with it, as Mars will still be Retrograde.

Keep in mind during all the intensity and sometime confusion this Eclipse Season, that your soul is searching for its heart’s desires and your mind’s right thinking to help lead the way forward for your life.

That is being worked out now, sometimes unbeknownst to you at a deep level.  But  know that it is and patiently wait till those planets go Direct and the Eclipse Season ends.

After that much will settle in, and you will be in a better position to know what you truly want ( aligned with your higher self) and where you are going.

Till next week,

Leo

Opening Pandora’s Box and Astrology Forecast July 15-21

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 14, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are still in the throes of the powerful Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer opposite Pluto.   It has brought up much from the inner realms of feelings, emotions, fears, and old stories ready to be released.

The Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus on April 15 was the wake-up call for entry into a New Chapter of personal and collective life for the human family on Planet Earth.

A portal opened for new energies to flood into our consciousness and lives.

And now with the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer, we are moving further forward into this New Chapter; yet now we are being made more aware of what we need to release in order to truly move further forward.

Family issues have become more important to address now.   Who is truly your family? Soul families are also a reality, and it is growingly important to find and connect with members of our soul family.

And of course old family stories, wounds, and traumas are being pushed up to the surface of our consciousness so we can either resolve, heal, or release and let go of them.

Powerful emotions have been opened up at this Solar Eclipse in Cancer, making us more able to work with them, understand them, and to transform them into something that works for us- not against us.

Transformation, which Pluto is helping us with now, requires a death of old stories and beliefs, a death of an old version of who we were, and the birthing of a new version of who we are truly growing into now.

This process is often very painful, as we must feel again that which has caused us pain in the past. Therefore it is important to trace what you are going through now to earlier times of your life when you felt similarly.

If someone has now abandoned, rejected, or betrayed you, go back to when you felt this way before.

If you are currently feeling horrible about yourself now, go back to the earliest time you can remember when you felt this bad about yourself.  What events back then triggered your negative feelings about yourself?  What has triggered that now?

As you go back to remember and to associate what happened then to what is happening now, get in touch with whatever “story” you have been carrying with you as a result of these hurts or traumas.

Have you told your self you are unlovable?  Have you told yourself you never can do anything right?  Have you told yourself there is something wrong with you that people always find out about you? Have you told yourself all men are bad or irresponsible, etc.? Or all women are bad, etc?

Whatever the story,  learn how your can release it, as it is not true.  It was developed to explain bad situations that happened to you.  But now you are able to see the bigger picture, see what happened with more insight.  And now you can release the old beliefs and stories you have been carrying for so long.

As this Eclipse Season continues, with a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius on July 27; and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11, powers of transformation will continue to be strong.

That means old ways are breaking down, and new breakthroughs and awakenings will appear.

In the greater world, the old paradigm appears stronger than it is really is.  Trump represents to many a keeping of an old world and its ways alive and sometimes that seems so powerful.

The new ways, however, have gotten so much stronger over the last several years, with worldwide connections with those who are different from us; inclusive attitudes toward those who were previously considered outcasts likes LGBTQ and people of color; holistic approaches to health and happiness; new spiritual ways of seeing beyond the old limits; an understanding that all is connected in a Universe governed by love and truth; and a knowing that we live in a meaningful world, not one of random chance and survival of the fittest mentality.

We must each keep our eye on the true direction of evolution and transformation of consciousness into an Age of Aquarius.

It is most important to keep from being controlled and defeated by your fears now.  There are a large group of souls who are feeling powerless in the face of the world and its leaders now. This attitude gives away our power.

Your destiny is between you and the Universe, not you and Trump or Republicans.  If you demonize them you give them more power and yourself less.   They will come and go just as did Nixon or even Hitler. I am not comparing, just showing how everything passes. and is not all powerful as it seems.

I know we are in the transition between ages, and that this New Chapter of the transition period is a most difficult one.  Much is ready to break down soon, and that break down will open up Pandora’s box of ugly emotions and actions.

Find your connection with the Universe and with your Soul Self now. Those connections will show you all connections and show you what you need to do and the way you need to go now.

So much is changing for all of us, and we are being challenged to keep on our soul’s path and to make changes that are necessary in order to stay on that path- whether that means changing homes, jobs, relationships, etc. Or for some it means giving up ideas of changing homes or relationship and instead settling into what you now have.

It is important now to know what is home and who is your true family.  At this Cancer Eclipse, we are pointed to knowing these connections to home and “family”.

It will give us a foundation and place of nurturance needed to hold our growth, evolution, and movement forward now.

In the greater world the American Culture War is getting more intense. We each need to do our best to understand where people who see different than us are coming from. Again do not demonize.  Their fears and needs for self preservation are likely driving their choices.

The Middle East is on the verge of being lit up with conflict.  Iran versus Israel is at the root of this potential conflict. And both of their country’s charts are triggered heavily by the next two eclipses. Syria, Gaza, Iraq, Russia, USA, and Lebanon are likely participants in the conflict.

This will likely cause many world event dominoes to fall as a result.

Keep in mind that we are living in a world and national system that is so toxic and dysfunctional, and need not long continue.  Yet those who are its “guardians” will fight tooth and nail to perpetuate its existence.

And as much is released from all the chaos, the path to a new age gets more clear and open.

We each need to find our place in this transition between ages, and it is necessary to keep the faith and keep up our spiritual practices.

I will have another video made in early August

Till next week,

Leo

Eclipse Season, Mars Retrograde and Astrology Forecast June 24-30

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on June 23, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week as we move into Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

On Thursday June 28 there is a Full Moon in Capricorn closely conjunct Saturn at 12:53 AM EDT.

The first actual eclipse (first of 3 this season) will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 12.  It will be very closely in opposition to Pluto.

The June 28 Full Moon in Capricorn conjunct Saturn opens up Eclipse Season with a strong pull to having limits, strong definition, strict rules, and firm boundaries.

Since in this Full Moon, the Sun is in Cancer directly opposite the Moon conjunct Saturn, we can expect Cancer permissiveness, unconditional attitudes, empathy, and openness to be a counter force to the Moon/Saturn strictness.

This will be a theme to reckon with during Eclipse Season- both personally and globally. Already we can see how nations are wrestling with open or closed boundaries for immigrants. This is especially so in America and Europe.

And in other places like Ukraine and East Asia, there are boundary disputes for who claims what land for their country.  And in North and South Korea, there is hope by many for the boundary between them to be erased.

These issues will be “more in our faces” during this Eclipse Season, starting this week.

In personal lives you may be pushed to decide even more than usual, when to “put your foot down” to stop others or to protect yourself or to be clear what you take and what you will not take from others.  Your boundaries will be pushed by others.

Politically speaking, liberal and conservative viewpoints will be showing up clearly this week and during Eclipse Season. Capricorn/Saturn is symbolically conservative and Cancer is more symbolically liberal. That does not mean all Cancers are liberal and all Capricorns are conservative.

Interestingly, in the USA natal chart from July 4 1776, the USA has its Sun in Cancer in conflicting square to its Saturn in Libra. This is representative of the constant war between liberal and conservative viewpoints in America. Squares tend to show that each side of the square is strongly opposed without much empathy for the other position.

This is so true of American politics, most especially now, as there is an obvious culture war going on.

And in this Summer Eclipse Season, beginning this week, we will experience that battle building in intensity. Calls for impeachment will get stronger.

Also this week, besides the Eclipse Season initiation with the Full Moon in Capricorn on the 28th,  there is the changing of direction of Mars from Direct to Retrograde.

Mars goes Retrograde approximately every two years for around 2 months each time.  This Mars Retrograde period will last from June 26 to August 27- at which time it will go back Direct.

In personal lives there will be a tendency with Mars Retrograde to give pause so one can better know what one wants and desires.  Mars Retrograde also shows us the condition of our personal will and to the issue of standing up for ourselves, and what we believe in.

It will also bring up issues of being true to our authentic Self or of compromising that truth in order to accommodate what others want from us.

Mars Retrograde also brings up a review of anger issues and competitive instincts.  It brings out alpha personality more strongly too, as well as issues of power and force.

Mars Retrograde will also bring up questions of what direction we want to move toward, and it may very well have us question the direction we have previously chosen.

On the global scene, there will be a questioning of issues of conflict or war. Previous stances of peace may be questioned. Previous stances of war may be questioned.

As this Mars Retrograde period will coincide with Eclipse Season, issues with North Korea and most especially the Middle East will be in the spotlight and heating up.

Of course we all know this is a critical time for questioning the state of our country and world.  Old paradigms and institutions, old programmed beliefs and ways of being are breaking down in order to allow new brighter, more loving, truth telling energies to pour into our consciousness and lives.

Eclipse Seasons always bring both breakdowns and breakthroughs. The only thing assured is that status quo familiarity is not safe during Eclipse Seasons.

Some parts of your life, especially with Mars Retrograde added to this Eclipse Season, will be questioned and/or challenged.

If you have planets closely connected to the planetary positions of the Eclipses, you will be more affected than others.

Keep in mind and heart the knowledge that all these shakeups or changes are aligned with your deeper soul, nature, and the Universe. Old beliefs, patterns, people, etc. who do not fit with your personal evolution and transformation are the ones that are threatened.

All is happening meaningfully and with the true needs of your soul.  Sometimes we get too set in our ways, and these Eclipses assist us in moving out of our being stuck, trapped, bored, clingy, and stopped from growing.

Often we have choice to not move with where the winds are blowing us to go, but we then are stunted in our growing and transforming, and something in our souls and spirits starts to die.

Also this week, besides the Full Moon in Capricorn and Mars going Retrograde, we also encounter Mercury moving out of Cancer and into Leo on June 28/29.

Mercury is our mind, our thinking, and our ability to communicate. When in Cancer feeling and thinking tend to merge and a more holistic perception and viewpoint emerge in our minds and ways of communicating.

And when Mercury is in Leo, there is more “light” in our thinking, and the mind tends to be creative and inspired. We also communicate more creatively and spontaneously.

Mercury will stay in Leo much longer than usual, until August 29, much more than its usual one month in a sign.

So begin the ride of Eclipse Season this week, even though the greatest intensity will likely not occur till closer to the first actual Eclipse on July 12.  

We will of course get deeper into the Eclipses as the Season continues. You can get some perspective on this Eclipse Season with the video I made earlier this month. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QkSNDn0QCg&feature=youtu.be

Till next week,

Leo

Total Solar Eclipse New Moon, and Astrology Forecast for July 19-25

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2009 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The second of three eclipses in a row happens this week.    It is a Total Solar Eclipse.  In the USA it happens on Tuesday the 21st of July, while in most of the rest of the world it happens on July 22.  On the USA east coast it is at 10:35 PM on the 21st, while on the west coast it is at 7:35 PM.

Solar Eclipses are always New Moons, as Lunar Eclipses are always Full Moons.   Solar Eclipses are exponentially perhaps 10 times as powerful as normal new moons.  This one being a total eclipse adds even more to its power.  This eclipse cannot be viewed in the United States.  It will be mainly seen in Asia.

As this is a solar eclipse, the moon will be blocking the light of the Sun from our view here on Earth, for those in the eclipse path.   This will last for over 6 and a half minutes, a long time as eclipses go, and the longest so far this century.

This eclipse new moon is at 29+ degrees of Cancer.    The Moon is the ruling planet of the sign of Cancer.  The last eclipse, a lunar Eclipse in Cancer/Capricorn happened on July 7.   For many, family and work issues have been in the spotlight.  These issues have been powerfully erupting in our lives since mid June, the beginning of the influence of the eclipse period this summer.

Surrounding the lunar eclipse these issues shook up the status quo of our lives, took us off balance, and in some cases caused a breakdown of that which was ready to die, and breakthroughs into new territory.  This helps us to release what needs to go.

After that clearing we are now ready to move forward at the New Moon Solar Eclipse.   Whatever issues opened up to us back then have been at least somewhat worked out,  and are now ready for new beginnings.  And of course it is time for many to begin important new ventures in their lives, as solar eclipses are so much more powerful than normal new moons.

In your own natal chart you are most affected if you have planets near 29 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, or Libra.    The actual personal natal house that the eclipse falls within also tells us what areas of your life will be most  affected by the eclipse.

Remember that the overall eclipse period this summer lasts from mid June to mid September.  This is the time period of shifting tides of change in our lives.

In the greater world so far during this eclipse period, we have witnessed much upheaval in Iran, dangerous actions by North Korea, a coup in Honduras, and many earthquakes all around the world.     Most striking, however to me, have been the many celebrity deaths, especially so of iconic figures here in the USA.    Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, and Walter Cronkite, among others, have died since mid June.  This is an extraordinary set of deaths during such a short span of time.

It is evident to me that we are on the verge of a strong transformation of our lives here in America.  We are saying goodbye to people who have had such a strong influence on all our lives in the past, who have been in our living rooms with our families, during good and bad times.   It is for many like losing family members, family members of our greater American family.

So after the release of the past and people and memories from the past, now waiting at our collective front doors are new challenges for a new era here in America.

The election of Obama and the crisis condition of our economy were early signs of a new phase of life in America, and the eclipses fast-forward this evolution.

And of course keep in mind that  we are also, during the eclipse period, spiking the movement toward a New Age on Earth.    The Mayan New Age begins in December of 2012.  The Aquarian Age arguably begins in 2020, at the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0+ degrees of Aquarius.

Whatever events erupt into our lives during this eclipse summer of 2009. will have an important impact on our journey to this new world.

So say farewell to times gone by, and open the arms of your heart to new waves of change.

Astrology Forecast for July 19-25

On Sunday the moon is in talkative, communicative, information sharing, and fast thinking Gemini most of the day.  So it will feel natural for many to socialize, or to write, or collect information from the internet.  But you may also be pulled in two different directions on Sunday and Monday.

One direction is reflective as we are ending a powerful lunar cycle that began on June 22nd with a new moon in cancer.   That new moon started the eclipse period, as two weeks later the Lunar Eclipse occurred at the full moon.   The last two weeks have been the waning part of the lunar cycle, and Sunday and Monday end the cycle.

The other direction is in anticipation of powerful new beginnings at the New Moon Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer Tuesday evening in the USA.  It often takes until the crescent moon shows, a day or two after the new moon, before events begin attributable to the new moon.    But until then the “dark moon” period is a good time to make affirmations concerning your heart’s desires for the cycle ahead.

The Moon will be in Cancer all day Monday and Tuesday on its way to its late Cancer degree meeting with the Sun on late Tuesday.  Thisdark moon period is time to contemplate, be nostalgic, but also to visualize what you anticipate to come at the new lunar cycle about to begin.

The Total Solar Eclipse New Moon happens Tuesday the 21st at 10:35 PM EDT.    It will open new vistas for us all.

Watch the news closely for unfolding of events.   Many believe those countries in the path of the eclipse are most affected by events.  China and India would be prime players if this is true.   Other astrologers believe a nation’s birth chart is more important when predicting events around an eclipse.   This can be very iffy because it is often uncertain what a nation’s date of birth and time of birth really is.  It’s not like nations pop out of a mother’s womb.

The USA nevertheless uses July 4 1776 as its birth day and I have found it quite accurate when looking at important events that have affected USA citizens over time.

In fact for this solar eclipse event the USA natal Pluto is at 27+ degrees of Capricorn opposite the 29+ degree Cancer placement of the Total Solar Eclipse.    This natal placement of the USA Pluto in its second house shows the USA power of its economy and its military power for its security.   Events or revelations about the USA economy and its military should be in the spotlight of world events.  Whatever you see, in events, over the next month of this lunar cycle, are important developments in the USA for its security.

All this week is in the wake of the Solar Eclipse so it will be an intense week.

On Wednesday, the day after the eclipse, the Sun moves into Leo.  It is time to open your heart to express your self.  It is time to create and to trust your heart to take you where it is right for you to go.   But Leo can also mean big egos, so watch out for those who put themselves above others.

Also on Wednesday Jupiter conjuncts Chiron in Aquarius, which is part of the triple conjunction all this year between Jupiter, Neptune, and Chiron.    This brings us events from the heavens or outer space, like space stations, new lunar pictures of the first moonwalk in 1969, and new questions about going to Mars one day. Watch also for other movements in the sky like UFOs or new asteroids, comets etc. this year.

The Moon joins the Sun in playful Leo on Wednesday and Thursday, but on Friday and Saturday it is get down to work time as the Moon is in Virgo then.

There will be a new forecast/blog put out next week on Saturday/Sunday, and in two weeks the last of the 3 eclipses of summer 2009 will occur, another Lunar Eclipse.

Till next week,
