Relationship Balancing and Astrology Forecast March 5-11

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 4, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last weekend we passed through a powerful Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces, while at the same time experiencing a “breaking things open” aspect: Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries.

As Jupiter in Libra was exactly opposite that conjunction, relationship issues come more strongly into our awareness.   And the Cardinal T-square of Uranus, Pluto, and Jupiter was triggered in the process, motivating Transformation in the world and in our personal lives.

We are truly 100% over the hump and now into a New Chapter of our lives, collectively and personally.

Collectively, the presidential election in the USA was the first signpost showing us a new path we are taking.  Eclipse Season this winter of 2017 has been bringing waves of change that are sweeping us faster forward on our journey.

As we look out into the greater world we can see many great challenges ahead.   There are two very different USA cultures that are clashing quite hatefully with one another.

Neither represents by itself what we need to move toward on our journey into the Age of Aquarius.

“Conservative” and “liberal”, or in reality all opposites, will need to find a way to join in circular unity, for the greater good of the community, in order to have a healthy and whole human condition in the Age of Aquarius.

And we are a long way from that condition.  And this is not just in the USA.  All over the world a new paradigm must be realized.  That new paradigm is about all the distinct parts of a whole being recognized and honored. All the opposites are valued in their intrinsic nature: male/female, yin/yang, dark/light, etc.

And in so doing we are building a Diversity within Unity world.

That means that even in our personal relationships we need to move beyond the idea that one person’s way is superior to someone else’s way, that someone is inherently better than someone else in value.

We will disagree of course, but respecting  the other person and their viewpoint is important. If you cannot do that, then that relationship is not one you should be in.

And now we get help with relationship issues as Venus is now Retrograde, and will stay that way until April 15 when it goes back Direct.

Yes that means that relationships and heart matters will be in the spotlight of your life, and you can expect some reflection on how relationships were in your past.

You may have strong memories of those people who used to have importance in your life,  and those memories may come from waking thoughts and feelings about people, but also may come through dreams and “in the flesh” appearances.

You may also have strong memories of how current relationships used to be back in the day.

And you will be working on relationhip issues more than usual.

But there are other parts to this Venus Retrograde.  Venus is a strong symbol for the feminine principle, and in Aries the feminine is bold, forceful, and stands up strong and brave for what it believes.

Athena is an archetypal Goddess who is very Aries in nature.  She is a warrioress, a woman born from the head of Zeus, and the head is the part of the body that Aries “rules”.

Venus in Aries does not bow down to anyone, and now in our world it seems like women are being called upon to assert themselves more and to not take abuse or “second class citizen” treatment.

Degrading of the Feminine is most prevalent in other cultures where women cannot attend school or vote or drive a car, or are sold into sex.

And even in America, women are often not yet paid equally for doing the same jobs as men, and they are also often not treated as equal in value to men.

But keep in mind that many women have bought into the old paradigm too, so the transformation of belief systems and values is for all.

Instead of putting blame on one gender or another, it is important to realize that we all “signed” onto a paradigm contract that now needs to be torn up and a new one realized.

In the old paradigm, so-called male values have been more highly honored in cultures all around the world.

The building of big militaries, the ambition to get rich, the “dog eat dog” mentality is of great importance in most cultures of this world.

“Survival of the fittest” mentality has dysfunctionally grown into power abuses, domination, war, and “us versus them” belief systems.

There is arguably not enough empathy, compassion, or sense of connection in our collective consciousness and cultural models.

True spiritual values that are not mainly based on rules and commandments and superiority are not valued enough either.

There is fighting or going to war for one’s God that is happening in many parts of this world too.

Being in survival and outer directed takes up so much energy in our world.

And the greatest of all “feminine” values, Love is sadly lacking in so much of life.

So it is time to reflect on and act on bringing the Feminine values to a stronger place in our cultures and hearts now.

And Venus in Aries represents the power of the Feminine and standing up tall for Feminine values.

All of us, male and female need to incorporate more love and care and connection into our lives now.

The proliferation of nuclear weapons, bombs, pornography and electronic devices show us the lesser priority shown for  love, intimacy and true deep connection in our world and daily lives.

This week after the big Solar Eclipse New Moon, we are led up to a Full Moon in Virgo on Sunday March 12.  We will look at that more closely next week.

So we are now still moving through Eclipse Season and will be until March 27 at the New Moon in Aries.

So now we process what has been happening this Eclipse Season, keep our eye on the New Chapter and what it is unfolding into. And we keep releasing that which was part of that old chapter that we will not be taking with us going forward.

With Venus being retrograde in Aries till April 15, in the process of improving our relationships, we also will need to strike better balance between independence and being true to oneself on the one hand, with being in relaionship and united on the other hand.

Doing so brings us more into Diversity within Unity in our own lives, as it is important to be true to our authentic self while also being unified in relationship.

Neither person should sacrifice their integrity of being in order to make a relationship work.

Till next week

Leo

Surfing Deeper Soul Waters and Astrology Forecast February 26- March 4

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on February 25, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Solar Eclipse this Sunday February 26 is at 9:58 AM EST.  That Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces floods the usually guarded gate between unconscious and conscious.  

This Eclipse is conjunct Neptune in Pisces. Neptune is the ruling planet of Pisces. So the Pisces issues go even  deeper and potentially more emotionally unstable.

Deep knowledge and deep truths are wanting to be acknowledged and made aware to our conscious minds and souls.

Dreams will be a good way to gain such awareness, so now is a good time to keep a journal next to your bed to write down your dreams upon waking.

And meditation is another way to more gracefully bring the unconscious and conscious together.

On the same day as the Solar Eclipse is a Uranus/Mars conjunction in Aries, which will be almost exactly opposite Jupiter in Libra.

That configuration is more outer directed, and suggests breaking away from old stuck boxes in one’s mind or life.  Relationships may be challenged to balance freedom or empowerment with staying in the relationship

That breakout from what keeps us chained gives us the opportunity for greater freedom and liberation.  But at the cost of stability and comfort.

So the few days surrounding the 26th may be more chaotic than usual.  The chaos for some will be more internal, hence the need for meditation and dream work.

For others there will be emotional upheaval of some sort, a releasing of previously controlled feelings.  Relationships could be the trigger for such emotional expression.

Since this Solar Eclipse New Moon is in Pisces, it is good now to better understand Pisces.

Pisces expects soul perfection as Virgo expects perfection on the material plane.

Pisces wants everyone to get along, to be connected in oneness, to be compassionate, to care more about giving than receiving.  Christ is an archetype of Pisces.

So you can see how Pisces is considered a dreamer.  It is not comfortable with a world or people who are harsh, selfish, dominating or controlling.

Can you also see how that can turn Pisces into seeing themselves as victims?

And since Pisces aspires to an idealistic image of how a human can be, it tends to suppress its more instinctual behaviors.

Pisces, as a result of being a dreamer, may turn to drugs or alcohol as an escape from the “real world”.  But a more aware Pisces will find a way to make their dreams come true and to combine reality with the dream.

And another healthy way for Pisces to be is to accept the world as it is, and to be satisfied with its own example of what the world could be idealistically- while at the same time not allowing itself to be victimized by that world.

So this Solar Eclipse is a good time to get in touch with one’s dreams of what it wants for itself and the world.

It is also a good time to deal with one’s ghosts or demons from the past, so one can move forward in one’s life with less baggage from that past.

Pisces at its best is sensitive and smooth, feeling its way through the greater flow of life.

The Mars/Uranus conjunction in Aries triggers action, not just internal movement.

The greater world may seem more chaotic than usual now, and breakdowns and breakthroughs may occur through events in the world.

Where people have been controlled and kept down, there is more desire now to break free.

“Conflict or Peace” may be a theme of this Mars/Uranus opposite Jupiter aspect. Keep a close watch on the world at large for indications of this.  This aspect will be pertinent all week long.

And in your own life, watch how relationships may teeter between conflict and peaceful resolution.

And since more on the unconscious wants to be made aware at this Pisces Solar Eclipse, deeper insights are more likely to arise to one’s consciousness.

And then what does one do when confronted with more insightful truth?  Does one act on it or not?

Another important aspect this week is Venus going Retrograde  on Saturday March 4. This will tie into the previously mentioned relationship challenges.

Venus goes retrograde around every one and a half years to two years or so.  Last time it was retrograde was in the summer of 2015.

It will stay retrograde this year from March 4- April 15.

Venus retrograde is a time when relationship issues come more into the light of consciousness.  Old patterns of relationship behavior can then get to a point where they cannot be tolerated anymore.

So couples can get more into crisis mode during Venus Retrograde, and have a greater sense of urgency to heal and fix the dysfunctional patterns.

People from the past come back into one’s consciousness during the retrograde period through dreams or waking memories, and those memories can help one to understand current relationship patterns better.

Sometimes the people from one’s past actually come back in the flesh, not just in memories or dreams.  So overall during Venus Retrograde there is reflecting on past relationships and applying those reflections to current situations and issues.

This is not only about “romantic” relationships, but can be about friendships or family members or people at work.   There is a need during Venus Retrograde to improve and even transform ways of relating that have not been working.

Since Venus begins its retrograde journey while in Aries, there is a need to look at one’s self needs, one’s empowerment and independence in contrast to needs to be in touch with a partner’s needs and the needs of the relationship itself.

Interestingly, Venus retrograde does slip into Pisces later in its retrograde journey, so the need for unity and connection then gets the spotlight.  And the balance between self interest and empowerment on the one hand with unity and connection on the other hand becomes really important to heal and work out effectively.

Keep in mind that Venus Retrograde is not usually a good time to make absolute relationship decisions like getting married or engaged or breaking up.

Let those ideas simmer until Venus goes back direct again in April. Then decisions or important events can be experienced.

So this week may have importance for relationships, of course romantic but yet any kind of relationship.

There is the eclipse on Sunday.  There is Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries opposite relationship oriented Jupiter in Libra.   And at the end of the week Venus goes retrograde.

Keep your center as well as you can and stay grounded.

Till next week,

Leo

Open the Gates of Change and Astrology Forecast February 19-25

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on February 18, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now in Pisces time of year, as the Sun moved into Pisces early morning on the 18th of February.

That means there is only one month left of Winter in the northern hemisphere of planet Earth.  Spring Equinox is on March 20.

So this week, starting on February 18, the Sun is in the last month of Winter while in Pisces.

At the same time this week, starting also on February 18,  we are entering the last quarter Moon phase before the New Moon Solar Eclipse on February 26.

So this week is a week of remembering and letting go of parts of the past.  We can go deeper inside ourselves and process what has been happening lately, and also what has happened in our more distant past.

Pisces is very sensitive and inner directed, and feels more comfortable in dreamy, poetic, and music based consciousness.

There is a desire to leave the conventional, accepted, and more harsh rules of living.  Pisces sees what can be a better world, and finds it sometimes difficult to be in “reality”.

So Pisces can be escapist and seek to avoid situations it is not comfortable in.

So you can use this week, if you can arrange it, to have plenty of time to go inward and to feel deeper realities.

If you cannot because of responsibilities in the “real” world, then find some time for meditation, music, art, spirituality, psychology, being aware of your dreams,  movies that have feelings and emotions, and time with others who are sensitive and deep.

When Spring comes it will then be time to take more direct action.

Most importantly this week however, is the fact that we are in between eclipses and preparing for the stronger of the 2 eclipses:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

The first eclipse was on February 10 in Aquarius/Leo.  It was a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon.

Many people have since been shaken out of status quo thinking, and experienced breakdowns and/or breakthroughs of their lives or consciousness.  Change is certainly in the air.

That theme of transformational change continues as we move toward the Solar Eclipse and further into Eclipse Season.

If you were born in late February Pisces especially, you will be affected by this Solar Eclipse.  Those also born in late May Gemini, late August Virgo, or late November Sagittarius will also be more greatly affected.

I cannot state it strongly enough that we as a human family are in the middle of such great change and transformation.

It is not because Donald Trump became president.  It is the opposite:  Donald Trump is the president because of all the change that this world is ready for and needs

What his presidency represents is shaking up and waking up the whole world.   The potential for deep transformational change is greater than it has been in many, many years.

The Universe with its planetary alignments is creating the circumstances and events necessary for the change we are and will be going through.

This summer the changes will be even bigger as we experience in August two eclipses, including a most important Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo that will be the first Total Solar Eclipse to travel over the whole of the United States since 1918.

The way is opening up now, during these current eclipses, for the light of even greater change to pour through this Summer.

But now as we get ready to experience the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces next Sunday the 26th of February, we need to spend more time and energy being awake and present for the new light and love that is wanting to stream through our consciousness and lives.

Concentrate not so much on Donald Trump and how much you love or hate him.   His narcissism thrives on such attention.

Concentrate more on letting go of old stories and mental programs that have controlled your life.

You now have opportunity to release dysfunctional patterns of behavior and relating more than ever before.

Truth is wanting to shine through along with love, and that truth will assist you in your healing and transformational process.

There is ample evidence, for instance, that extraterrestrial visitations have been covered up by governments and former presidents.

There is so much we have been programmed to believe or not believe by our parents, schools, religions, and governments.

When you are ready to know the truth, the truth will be brought to you if you are awake and open-minded.

That does not mean it is right to accept all the crazy conspiracy theories that are out there.  Instead we each need to trust our own inner sources to find what is real and true.

As we let in more truth, love has a greater chance of being real and not just wishful dream-world romaniticizing.

As we let in more love, truth has a greater chance to be hopeful and optimistic, not cynical and hopeless.

Love and Truth together move mountains and allow us to have a healthier life and world.

As we move through this Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces, expect the flow of watery feelings and insights to be really powerful and in some cases overwhelming.

Pisces is a soul oriented sign, and as such gets us to experience that which is deeper than our chattering and unfeeling minds.

Our true self is known more clearly from our hearts and souls than our minds.  The mind that is not connected to our hearts and souls is the breeding ground for a controlling ego.

Since Pisces is a mutable water sign, we can best navigate this Solar Eclipse by being flexible and open to change.

That does not mean one should totally surrender one’s control and stability, but it does mean one may get shaken up out of stuck and rigid places in one’s mind or life.

The energy of the eclipse will get more intense leading up to the eclipse, which happens on February 26 at 9:58 AM EST.

On the same day Mars will conjunct Uranus in Aries, which will give us events and/or mind frames that will break outside of old boxes and liberate us from that which has kept us stuck.

That Mars which is conjunct Uranus on the 26th is square to Guardian of the Underworld Pluto on the 22nd.

So the Uranus/Pluto square is triggered again, as well as the Cardinal T-square, which includes Jupiter in Libra in the mix.

All in All, it is time to let go of the old chapter in your life in a much bigger way, and to let in a new and more powerful chapter in your life and in the life of the country and world.

Much of what is breaking down from the past may not feel good, but when a storm comes through a town it does not only break down what is not wanted. “You can’t always get what you want”. But you get what you need.

The way needs to be cleared for new energies, for a new paradigm, for a New Age. And that is what is happening.

Till next week,

Leo

In the Middle of Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast Februay 12-18.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on February 11, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we are in between two eclipses.   The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo has passed, and the stronger Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces will not be here until February 26.

It will be stronger in part because Mars in Aries will be square Pluto just before it is conjunct Uranus in Aries on the 26th.

These Mars movements will trigger the powerful Cardinal T-Square of Jupiter in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries. That will accelerate the changes, the revolution and evolution of our consciousness and lives.

This week, though intensity should remain strong as it is part of  Eclipse Season, there will be a gradual “coming down” from the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon last week.

The issues that were brought up for you around the eclipse last week, will be ripe for processing and transforming.

Then at the Solar Eclipse New Moon on the 26th there will be a thrust forward with more action and even more intensity.

For now in your consciousness, do your best to not make absolute conclusions or rigid opinions.

Issues and ideas will unfold and be changeable now, and though one may want the security of having a set agenda, it is best to surrender to the greater energies during this Eclipse Season.

In the greater world, this Eclipse Season has brought on strong counteractions to the Trump administration’s agenda.  For instance, the courts have denied him the ability to stop the flow of immigrants into the country.

You can know for sure that this presidential administration will continue to face enormous backlash against its policies and actions.

We can now see how easy it will be for traditional and long set USA policies and protocols to fall away and in some instances crash.

The election of Trump showed us that the process of transformation into an Age Of Aquarius will not be graceful.

The United States will have many breakdowns of old ways, both good and bad, while at the same time trying to recapture the principles and values that formed America in its beginnings.

Europe will also be trying to find its identity during the next few years, and the turn to nationalism there and in America is part of that process.

Remember in the bigger picture we are moving into an age of Equality and Diversity within Unity, so anything that develops that appears to be going in an opposite direction is temporary and just part of the process.

Attempts to go back to old ways of Super Powers and exclusiveness are on the way out.  These attempts to go back to those old ways will be short lived and on a deeper level part of reintegrating what was good about the past that has been “thrown out with the bath water”.

Those original American principles of the Constitution and Bill of Rights have been eroding through the years, and they are needing to be found again for the rebirth part of its transformation into an Age of Aquarius.

On a personal level we are all being challenged to stay on our path, keeping and even firming up our own values.

This new administration is a part of the Universe’s challenge to us to not let fear and hatred take us off course.

If we are now afraid and feel hopeless or victimized and keeping our hatred alive; we are moving into the same mind frame as those we are hating and feeling powerless to.

We can now deepen our connections to Source and the Universe, strengthen our commitment to the world we envision, and be a part of a growing movement of revolution.

Just as our ancestors started a revolution from the grip of a King’s’ authority, so now can we do the same in our own way.

Keep your view of the bigger picture, strengthen your resolve for transformational change, and deepen your spiritual connection. Concentrate on those things and you will stay out of a personal inner hell.

This week as we move “down” from last week’s Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, we begin to get ready for the more powerful eclipse on February 26.

On Thursday February 16 the Moon goes into Scorpio for a few days, to begin a process of going deeper into your soul, your emotions and feelings, and your inner spiritual depths.

On Saturday February 18, while the Moon is still in Scorpio, the Sun will begin its annual journey through Pisces.

Scorpio and Pisces are both deep water signs, so you will be prompted to go inside yourself more.

Later that same day as the Moon moves into Sagittarius it will create the 4th quarter Moon, which begins the last quarter of the lunar cycle.

That 4th quarter beginning will open up the way to a need to finish things up in preparation for the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

What parts of your current life need to change now?

Is it your attitudes and beliefs?  Is it the patterns of your relationships?  Is there a need to change your home or homelife?  Do you feel good about fulfilling your sense of purpose?

Just like in the 60’s and 70’s, all parts of one’s life may be challenged to change.

Back then as now, if our relationships feel empty, without soul and spirit, they will need to change or be ended.

If we do not feel heart connection to our jobs or place where we live, we may need to make changes.

You will know when and if it is time to make the changes, as life and the Universe will bring you the events or inner stirrings that show you the way.

You will not need to contrive the changes or “push the river” t0 move forward before it is time.

Eclipse Seasons often bring the events or inner stirrings for change, but it usually does not mean change comes all at once.

If the events or inner promtings come to you it is best to pay heed, as it is better to initiate change than have it thrown at us. Yet sometimes it is “fated” to come to us when we least expect it.

The more connected we each are to our inner light the better, and that is strengthened with an inner anchor inside.

Till next week,

Leo

Here We Go and Astrology Forecast January.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 21, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The early part of this week is mostly about processing what has been happening in our personal lives and in the greater world.   Mercury is now firmly direct and back to its normal speed; and the Moon is in its 4th and last quarter phase of its cycle.

Where are we?  What has been happening to us and our world? The early part of this week will allow us to reflect on all this.

In the greater world we can now stop and feel the reality of a Trump administration and what it means for our world and lives.  The Women’s March right after Trump’s inaugration tells us more about the new reality we are all in now.

We had been experiencing a relatively graceful time period for the last 8 years, during President Obama’s presidential years.

There were many changes, like more recognition and honoring of the LGBT community; a big improvement economically from the housing and employment crashes right before he was elected;  the nuclear deal with Iran; and Obamacare.

There was also great turmoil in the rise of Islamic State; the Arab Spring; Occupy Wall Street; Ferguson Missouri and other examples of police abuse of African Americans; the rise of Russia again; continued economic disparity between rich and all others; terror attacks in America and western civilization, etc.

But most of the time there was little drama or anger or judgmentalness from the top of the Obama Administration.

Some would say there was not enough action taken on important matters like Syria, but nevertheless there was a sense that things would not fall apart and that the “system” would stay intact and functioning.

But now it is time for bigger transformational change, for greater conflict, for a sense that the old world is truly falling apart and a new alternative world being built.

You can see this ripeness for great transformational change by looking more deeply at the Trump administration.

On the one hand he has chosen those who are quite obviously guardians of the Old World like military generals, billionaires, oil barons,  ex Goldman-Sachs executives, etc.

On the other hand he does not fit the mold of traditional USA presidents at all; he shows obvious signs of impulsiveness which could cause events that really shake up our world;  he does not comply with traditional rituals and courtesies that have kept the Old World with structure; he is committed to doing business HIS WAY to a fault; he makes relationship with those who have traditionally been considered enemies; he is looking to tear down programs like Obamacare and the Iran deal; and he is planning on moving the USA Israel center to Jerusalem which would cause great turmoil and conflict in the Middle East.

So you can see some of what is coming: a desire to keep the Old World stronger than ever before- while tearing it down at the same time.

His Gemini twin nature is quite capable of moving in these opposite directions at the same time, in a perverse way aligned with the transformational movement of the Universe.

And “we the people” of this land and western civilization in general are facing a huge transformational change in our world and in our personal lives in the years ahead of us.

We are letting go of that which represents our personal “Old World” while letting in the light of our personal “New World”.

Relationships, homes, careers, and especially belief sytems that are connected to the old world paradigm will be released.

The Universe and our deeper Souls will be unfolding to us our new lives, our new beliefs and atttitudes aligned with the New World we have entered.

And of course in the bigger picture we are being transformed to align with the Age of Aquarius and its paradigm for our evolution.

This New Chapter of our lives, lasting the next few years, will not be as graceful as the last 8 years have been.

The Election between Trump and Clinton showed us the immense split in our country. It showed nastiness and character assassination; narcissism that precludes the ability to empathize with others and other ways of being; and a fight or competition that is ruthless and without true consideration for the welfare of the community.

We are at the same time being awakened to beliefs and attitudes that will help each of us to evolve into a Truth and Love, Diversity within Unity world, where win/win is the result intended in all conflicts and competitions.

The self actualization into our authentic selves will be combined with our intentions to be in meaningful relationship with others; and to contribute to our human community while healing our Earth and making greater connection to the Universe.

These are powerful times now, and we must be ready.

This week we concentrate on reflecting and processing until Friday January 27 at 7:07 PM EST.

That is the time of the New Moon in Aquarius, which also is the time of the beginning of the Chinese New Year of the Rooster.

Early on the next day the 28th, action oriented Mars moves out of go-with-the-flow Pisces and enters forceful and active Aries.

So late this week we get the “go sign” and start the New Era.  That New Moon in Aquarius will also begin the Eclipse Season, one that will show us a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on February 10; then a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

So the go sign is strong and changes will happen fast especially in the world at large.   President Trump will be making decisions that try to undo some of the accomplishments of the last 8 years and before.

People will begin to forcefully oppose these decisions and movements at the same time.

Transformational Change is breaking open.

On a personal level the Aquarius New Moon on the 27th,  that opens the portals for the Eclipse Season, shows us Aquarian traits.

So we will be prompted to find and honor our distinctive and individualized self, even if we feel we are different or weird.

And at the same time we will have doors opened for finding our soul families.    Birds of a Feather want to flock together now.

Finding your individual truth will help you to find your soul groups.

If you continue to be what others expect or want from you, or what you think you should be; then you will not know where you truly belong. But now you have the opportunity to begin to change that old way.

So get ready to begin the New Chapter adventure.  It is Time.

Till next week,

Leo

Riding the Waves and Astrology Forecast March 13-19

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 12, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It is rather difficult to find clarity about life direction now, almost feeling at times like Mercury Retrgrade.    We have been releasing and letting go of the past, trusting that the new world will be clearer as a result.

But for many now, they are caught in a tunnel between worlds, in a void waiting for direction.

Things are shaking up for sure, but where are we going? And if we do know where we are likely going, it still does not feel very settled and solid.

As we look at the greater world, we see similar confusion as to where we are going.  Look at the campaign for President of the USA.

Donald Trump is so different than what anyone might have thought would be President.

But yet now he is is at the front of the line of candidates to be President.

According to my astrological formula for President, he is quite high in rating to win.   To my calculation, if we are faced with overwhelming security issues this autumn, he will win.  If the economy or terrorist issues are in dire straights for Americans, then he will win.

If however things stay as are now, there is a good chance still that Clinton or Sanders will win instead.

So does it feel almost fated that Trump will win?  Does he represent the old America so much, at a time there is a collective need to hold back the tide of the Age of Aquarius?

In 20 years or less, it is calculated that minorities will be the majority in the United States.  White people will be in the minority.  Latinos, African Americans, Asians, and yes Muslims will together make up the majority in America.

And Trump people’s version of America is ending.  Many hate the idea that old way will end.  Old white men running the country was already threatened by Obama’s presidency. And many of these people liking Trump hated President Obama.

Diversity in Unity is coming, but there is a lot to work out first.

And Sanders represents a transformed economy, one more aligned with equality; and he represents an acceptance of the world of Diversity.

So does Clinton bring an acceptance of diversity, and she also represents another break from Old White men running the country.   What many people wonder, however, is if she is beholden to that old world’s values in other starkly important ways.

And it is easy to move through transformational change on just the surface, not on  a deeper level.

In your own life, if you are changing relationships; will that new relationship also bring a change in old unhealthy patterns.  Or are you just changing the sheets in the same old bed of your life?

If you are changing jobs or changing where you live, is it because you need a job or home to reflect the changes you have made internally? That is positive transformaion.

Or is the job or home change just a way you can escape the deeper issues?

This is a time period, an Eclipse Season leading soon to an Age of Aquarius, where the winds of the Universe will assist deeper transformation.  This deeper transformation will bring you closer to your authentic Soul Self, leading a more authentic life in service to a new age on Planet Earth.

And there is much more to experience during this Eclipse Season. I believe this one will last until just past the Full Moon on April 21.

There is still a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra on March 23 to experience, one that will likely shake things up even more drastically than this last one in Pisces.

This one in Pisces has been emotionally intense and confusing for finding clarity and direction.  It has also been difficult for some to focus this week.  In part that is because of the nature of eclipses, and also because the often nebulous sign of Pisces is involved.

But it is also because we have been experiencing a mutable T-Square which includes:  a Solar Eclipse in Pisces, Jupiter in Virgo, and Saturn in Sagittarius.  We are being pulled in 3 different directions, so of ocurse not knowing which way to turn.  And Neptune in Pisces is just out of orb from making a mutable Grand Cross, which would pull us in 4 different directions.

Nevertheless on April 7, at the New Moon in straight forward Aries, we will be sent forward- ready or not.

Our direction, both personally and globally will be pretty much laid out by then.  We will know what is happening as long as we do not choose to put our heads in the sand to escape from seeing clearly.

So for now see it all as a process and let go of strong desires to get going forward in action.

I know it can be stress inducing to sit in the middle and not be moving forward.   But you will know soon enough, so do your best to find some peace internally and focus on healing for a bit more time.

Next week there will be more energy for active pursuits, or at least a feeling like the tide has turned.

That is because very early on the 20th there is the Spring Equinox.  At that time there is equality between dark and light, between yin and yang.  But right afterwards the tide turns to light and yang, to movement forward.

Maybe you will only subtly feel that turn, maybe more so for some.   But keep in mind that once the Moon catches up with the Sun in Aries, then it will be time to get going.

And whenever the Moon catches up to the Sun, a New Moon is created. And the one on April 7 will be in Aries, the sign of active fiery movement forward.

Before that we experience the Spring Equinox while immersed in Eclipse Season.  Just before that, on Wednesday March 16, we experience the rather powerful aspect of Jupiter trine Pluto.

This will mainly be seen in the greater world through its events.  Powerful and maybe even explosive events will happen surrounding that date.  In your personal life, there may also be more intensity again, as this Jupiter trine Pluto aspect happens during Eclipse Season.

So keep your focus on the bigger picture and do your best to keep releasing beliefs and attitudes that no longer serve you or the world we live in.

And open your mind and heart to connect with resonant energies and people, even if on the surface they seem different or strange to you.

Till next week,

Leo

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces and astrology Forecast March 6-12

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on March 5, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have often written how our entrance into the New Age of Aquarius requires the breakdown of the old world, the system and its’institutions.

And each time we move into an Eclipse Season, the process of breakdown of the system intensifies, even as there is an intensification of breakthroughs too.

These breakthroughs bring new truths, more light and love, and greater alignment with the energies for an Age of Aquarius.  There is also, as part of the process, a return to values at the core of whatever entity is experiencing the transformation.

And this week, on Tuesday March 8 at 8:54 PM EST the first of two in a row eclipses erupts.

So the process of transformation through breakdowns and breakthroughs is intensifying. As we look at the political landscape through the lens of the Democrat and Republican campaigns for President of the USA, we see the people wanting a breakdown of old systems and wanting their core values to be brought back into the world.

No matter what politics you have allegiance to, and Sanders and Trump represent such different values, you must be able to see that both candidates show us how much the people of the USA  desire vast transformational change. And their popularity also shows us the breakdown of the old system.  Since Clinton is a woman, in that regard she also represents a breakdown of the old paradigm that does not truly believe women can be world leaders.

And there will be much more breakdown of the old system.  Since “the system” is run by Government, Corporations/Banks, and Military; we can expect the breakdown to come to those places.

Great change in who and what are running the government, Corporate/Banking breakdowns through stock market and other declines, and more chaotic military conflicts will show us the breakdowns.

This being a Pisces Solar Eclipse New Moon, there should be “ghosts”of the past coming back into the world and personal lives, in order to clear the way for new people, new energies, and new ways of being.

These ghosts will remind us of how it used to be, and let us know that they or it will not be coming back.  At first there may be some nostalgia for the way it used to be, but after a little while, it will be obvious that those old times are gone.

Let your self feel the sadness or grief, but when it is time- let it go- so you can be ready to more fully embrace the New Chapter of life.

The old necessarily dies when it is time, but of course can be metaphorically kept barely alive on “life support systems”.  But those systems can only delay the inevitable and give a bit more time to get used to the changes.

We are getting used to big changes in our world, as can be seen in the aforementioned current political climate.   President  Obama and his government will be gone after the election, and whomever takes over will be so much different than he has been.

And in your own life, what is dying now, what is leaving your world?  The concentration at this New Moon in Pisces is more on what is leaving than arriving, more making peace with the past than greeting the future.

If you need, do ritual around what you are letting go.   In that way you can feel the process as natural and sacred.

If you are letting go of an old relationship, take out pictures and cut them up or bury them, or burn them, or lovingly place them somewhere in your house that represents the past to you.

Feelings may be quite strong around this Pisces Solar Eclipse, sensitivity may be heightened, and desires to escape difficult situations or decisions greater.

A good strategy over the next couple of weeks would be to surrender, or let go, not control, or be too governed by any rigid agendas.

Trusting the Universe is more important than usual and meditation more helpful than usual.

No matter what is happening “on the ground”,  as bad as it may seem right now; in the bigger picture there is an old world dying and a New Age being born.   And there is no way the new world can be built on the foundation of our current old paradigm for living.

That old paradigm rewards selfishness and aggression in men; and rewards looks and submissiveness in women.

It is a dog eat dog eat world, every man or family of nation for itself, creating enemies to rid the world of.   It is a world that rewards big ego and narcissism, rewards the ability to make money and have the “right” image above all else.

If you want the Age of Aquarius for our children, grandchildren and future generations, it is imperative the old world breaks down.  That will be our sacrifice for evolution and the future.

Ironically, concentrating on being in the “here and now”, “in the moment”, is the best way to facilitate the best future.

Spiritually and practically speaking there is only “now”, even as we grieve the past or imagine the future.

We can do all that if we do not dwell or get engulfed by feelings about the past, or imaginings or worries about the future.

This Pisces Solar Eclipse New Moon will bring greater intensity, especially emotionally.  Be careful not to overreact or get defensive in your relationships.  Since feelings are being stirred up now, it is right to be aware of this fact so you can do your best to keep boundaries, and to put a lid on emotions that are on the verge of getting out of control.

Not taking personally what others say to you will also be important now. Focus on what may be bothering them that has little to do with you and more to do with their own issues.

In the greater world,  stay away from fear or hated as best you can.  All is happening for a reason from the bigger picture.  Certain personalities or countries that represent everything that is against your values are not your enemy to be hated.

Making the Diversity in Unity world come to fruition is dependent on each of us living by that standard.  Or as my Mother used to say, “it takes all kinds to make up this world”. Some we like and some we do not, as is natural.

I can’t truly understand why there have to be crocodiles, sharks or tics in the world, but part of nature’s mystery makes them all necessary.

Let go this week, trust the Universe and Nature, including Human Nature.

Talk with you next week,

Leo
