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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week

Better Angels and Astrology Forecast March 17-23.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on March 16, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week Mercury Retrograde continues its trickster journey in foggy Pisces, making it difficult to know anything for sure.  Mercury will stay Retrograde until March 28.

And around the time Mercury gets back to speed, we experience the focused force of a New Moon in Aries on April 5. Till then we lay back and do more inner exploration and processing.

There is not now much clear and focused planetary energy for us to use for decisions, direction, or positive action now. It is not time yet.

Nevertheless, this week we will experience an energy shift mid week, as the Spring Equinox combines with a Full Moon in Aries/Libra on Wednesday March 20.

Spring Equinox, as always, brings the Sun into Aries.  What is different this year, however, is the fact that the Moon moves into Libra- exactly opposite that Spring Equinox Sun in Aries a mere few hours later.

Spring Equinox is at 5:58 PM EDT on March 20.  The Full Moon, with Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra, is at 9:43 PM EDT that day.

We are beginning to open up to energies of forward movement, but important movement forward is not in the cards yet.  Mercury Retrograde is still sorting things out in our minds, helping us to process feelings and thoughts that may be keeping us stuck.

This Full Moon is about working out any dilemmas we may hold around balancing our needs for independence and being true to Self on the one hand (Aries), with being sensitive to relationship and listening to others on the other hand.(Libra).

Aries fights for what it believes in, Libra seeks peace at all costs.  Aries is forceful and often competitive, Libra is socially correct and a mediator between opposing voices or opinions. Aries is governed by Mars, Libra by Venus.  Which side have you been leaning toward lately? Might be time to find a new balance between these two opposites.

After this Full Moon, we enter the waning half of the lunar cycle, directing us to coast “downhill” before the strong forward movement of the New Moon in Aries on April 5.

Many people I talked with this last week were going through rather “on the edge” situations in their lives.  Self destructive thoughts, near relationship breakups,  and fears of old patterns coming back were some of those edgy situations.

Sometimes it takes these “on the edge” challenges to push us over the edge into true change and transformation.

Speaking of “on the edge”, this last week our world experienced another mass murder, this time at a mosque in New Zealand where 49 people were massacred by a white supremacist.

These massacres are happening more and more often, and show us there is much that needs healing in our world.

The world is split between nationalists and globalists, with little apparent link between them.  Nationalists want to “clean out” all peoples who migrated into their country from other countries and cultures.

Globalists want to join all peoples together, even within a country.  Immigrants then join with more “pure” members of the country.

So, for instance, in France many nationalists want only purely French people in the country, not those who have immigrated to France from other cultures, largely Muslim dominated cultures.

They want to make France great again. MAGA would be changed to MFGA.  And many other western countries are going through similar challenges.

In Britain, the people voted in a referendum to leave the European Union (Brexit). They want to return to Britain as it used to be: Nationalism.  Obviously, those who want to stay in the Union are more globalist.

But do you see here the stew of Diversity within Unity boiling over chaotically? Choice here has been between old unity of old country versus more diversity that is unregulated in the country.

But the immigrants will not ultimately be thrown out, so the Diversity will stay. And Unity of France or England or USA with all that diversity is the only possible solution.

In the USA minorities and women are getting stronger and stronger. In not too many years minorities will be the majority. And there is no stopping the empowerment of women anymore.

If you are a progressive or globalist or even socialist, there is no stopping the world becoming more how you envision it.

The only question is how ugly, how violent, how hateful, how destructive will our world get in its process to becoming the Diversity Within Unity world it is meant to be.

And can we destroy our world and not get to the promised land? And can we destroy our air, oceans, etc. on the way to this Age of Aquarius?

This is why it is so important now to let hatred leave our hearts, to let love in.

Yes we each need to stand our ground and fight for the world we believe in!! Can we do it without hatred?

Can we do it with little or no violence? Can we make this revolution work without triggering anyone to use weapons of mass destruction?

Can civil disobedience be our path into this New Age?

So let’s quit making everything about Donald Trump? He is a pawn in the grand scheme. He is playing his role in the world drama. As Shakespeare wrote in As You Like It, “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players”.

Trump is there to show us how off track our country has become: worshipping wealth and fame above all else, letting the higher values of the Constitution and Bill of Rights become lesser values in our world.

Whether he is impeached or not is not the question.  To Be or Not to Be our best selves, aligned with our better angels is the question.

And now each of us must find our better angels inside ourselves.  And that will bring us our better world.  We each must be the world we believe in.

Yes we are about to experience the Shit Hitting the proverbial Fan.  But in that place on the edge is where we find our breakthroughs and awakenings into the Age of Aquarius, into a world governed by Love and Truth.

Sure that may seem far away as we look at the greater world now. But can you remember when you were on the edge emotionally when you lost that loved one, or were abandoned in a relationship? Can you remember that job you lost that meant so much to you, as you worried if you could pay your bills?

We have all had to go to the edge in order to wake up to something; or to be humbled; or to see everything in a new light; or to let go of what was blocking our way; or to become more empathetic or compassionate,; or to transform a belief or old toxic pattern; or to break through old programming; or to liberate ourselves from a stuck place, etc.

And now our world has come to the end of an Old Chapter that is not serving our spirits and souls anymore; that is holding back our natural evolution; that is blocking our path to better relationships; that is keeping us in a paradigm of dog-eat-dog separation; materialism;  lack of meaning and sacredness; without enough love or truth, etc.

These next few weeks may have us continue facing our shadows or inner demons, as we wait for the grand openings after April 5.

You are getting ready for new direction and new movement forward soon.

For now hang back and do not make big decisions or start major projects or impulsively leap into anything for escape.

Till next week,

Leo

Mercury Retrograde, Spring Equinox and Astrology Forecast March 18-24

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 17, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week with Mars entering Capricorn, New Moon  in Pisces, Spring Equinox and Mercury Retrograde.

This means the energy fields we move within are changing this week.  The changes will shift our consciousness and lives in preparation for the Portal Opening on April 15.

It is obvious now that the greater world and culture we reside within is in a chaotic and not so predictable state of being.   The White House is reflective of this state of being, and it is in shambles, and always in some sort of transition.

And of course whether you feel in alignment with the new Administration or not, this Administration and its volatility are a symbol of the condition of the USA right now.

The Stock Market and economy; the Mueller probe; the porn actress’s accusations; the growing dangers with Iran, Syria, Israel, North Korea; the trade wars; and the macho strutting with Russia and China put all of us on our toes waiting for even greater changes.

We are in the midst of an enormous transformation of the country and world.

Trump is not causing the chaotic climate that makes us ripe for such transformation. He is instead a lead actor on the world stage, just the right actor to help facilitate world events that will take us to the edge of darkness,  so we can call on the Phoenix who will rise from the ashes of our old paradigm’s burning.

Some are already getting into survivalist mode, while others not as alarmed are  still being called to make changes in their consciousness and lives, changes that are aligned with the world we are moving into.

Others of us are not sure what direction to move toward, and are seemingly waiting for events to unfold to show the way.

The next few weeks will not show us clear direction, however, especially so because Mercury is going Retrograde on March 22 at 8:19 PM EDT.

As usual the ‘re’s will in charge during Mercury Retrograde: rewind, reflect, readjust, rebalance, remind, realign.

There is much processing to do now, as it is not time now to move toward bottom line decisions and even bottom line logical answers.

Allow Mercury Retrograde to have you go inward to reflect, to question what has been previously understood or decided, to bring to you memories of the past and to bring back people to you from your past.

The people from the past will likely not stay with you after they return, though sometimes they do.  The questioning of previous understandings and decisions does not mean you will truly change your direction from what you have chosen, but sometimes it does.

The New Moon in Pisces this Saturday the 17th was at 9:12 AM EDT.  Though it is a New Moon, Pisces is not a sign of action to move forward.

Pisces brings everything together in integration and unity, to get ready for the movement forward later, this time after the New Moon in Aries on April 15.

Pisces is the sign for the last month of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the transition sign for moving into new beginnings of Spring.

As such we now do soul searching, shadow integration, and getting in touch with deeper feelings;  especially feelings of sadness and grief, of fading memories, of snapshots of previously not remembered early life events.

We face ghosts of the past,  want to resolve old issues, and hopefully find some closure.

This Pisces time we are doing even deeper soul diving than usual, wanting to gather everything together in anticipation of the coming forward movement in our lives, collectively and personally.

There may be some energetic confusion as we also experience the beginning of spring this week.  It is on Tuesday March 20 at 12:15 PM EDT.

This is the first moment of the Sun’s movement into Aries, as it does to begin every Spring Equinox.

Aries is the force of new life buds bursting through the branches. It is a baby being born, a teenager’s awkward movement form childhood to adulthood.  It is a new challenge, a competition, showing a new way, standing up for yourself or what you believe in, being brave even when you are afraid,  fighting the good fight, self assertion, self honoring, alpha attitude, and taking action.

The confusion may come from the fact that Mercury is going Retrograde and there is a need to process and rewind before truly moving forward.

So use this Spring Equinox Aries entry to begin to wake yourself up! Winter is over, even if the weather still feels like Winter.  The turning point energetically is happening this week, so get in touch with that energy and wake your self from the doldrums of Winter, from being kinda depressed from such a harsh and difficult winter.

No need to go fast forward, just wake up. Soon there will be the need for action and for fresh events to manifest. But not now. Even action oriented Mars is being affected by the gravity of Capricorn now.

It moved into Capricorn on the 17th at the New Moon in Pisces. It will stay in Capricorn until May 16, when it goes into Aquarius.

But this year Mars will go back into Capricorn from mid August till Mid September.

The reason is because Mars goes Retrograde on June 26, then retraces its previous steps.

Mars in Capricorn takes away the spontaneous and sometimes impulsive instinct of Mars.

Mars puts on a uniform of military or police when in Capricorn, giving it discipline and boundaries, rules and structure to act within.

So with Mars now in Capricorn, it is time to ground your actions, to make goals and commitments, to organize and plan, to make manifest.

Just remember that we are in Mercury Retrograde until April 15, so there may be some confusion till then, and if you are not that confused, you will still need to wait before manifesting or making absolute statements.

After April 15 the train of our lives starts it engines, but remember that Mercury will just begin to be Direct that day, so total clarity may still need to form, and movement will still not be fast forward. Big events will likely be a few weeks or a few months away then.

So with all this knowledge look at the country and world.  The White House will still be rearranging the deck chairs of its Titanic voyage.

There  will be more employee firings and hirings this coming month, more drama and confusion, more setting the stage for coming events.

Trump is planning to meet with Kim Jong Un in April or May; the USA is moving its embassy to Jerusalem in May. Other important world events will spring forward in April, May and later this year.

Your life and consciousness are working out  what needs to be worked out now. Do your best not to judge your self now or what you did or didn’t do in the past.

Let go of old stories that keep you stuck.  Let go of old stories that make you feel like a victim or loser or failure or horrible person.

The past, no matter what it was, is a stepping stone for your life as it grows and transforms into one of purpose and authenticity, one of love and forgiveness.

Love yourself from all time periods and ages of your life. Have compassion for your self, for the seeming mistakes you might have made. Forgive yourself and others as best you can organically.

It is almost time for us all to move forward more fully into this New Chapter of our lives on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

And the less baggage we take with us from our past the better.  No you will not be able to tie a pretty bow on all those traumas and disappointments, disillusions and heart wounds.

But you can forgive, learn to trust enough, and have faith all happens with meaning.

You can gain enough closure to be able to move forward. But do not despair if all has not been worked out to total satisfaction. It never is perfect.

Till next week,

Leo

Getting Ready and Astrology Forecast March 19-25

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Energetically and astrologically, the true New Year begins this Monday the 20th at the Spring Equinox.

The Sun moves into Aries that day at 6:29 AM EDT.  That is the first moment of Spring 2017, when dark and light, yin and yang, male and female are equal. But light, yang, and male energies are now on the rise.

Aries is the sign of new starts and new beginnings; taking action; and being straight forward, direct, and frank. Mars is the planet most associated with Aries, thus Aries can be confrontational, combative, and competitive.

It wants to be #1 and be the first to arrive, as is the sperm who wins the race to the egg to create a new being.

Spring is the perfect time for Aries as it is when buds come through the branches as new growth, and when nature wakes up from the dormancy of Winter.

So on Monday there is the feeling of renewal and beginnings.

All that has happened in the past year has potentially been reviewed and processed during Pisces time of year, which is passing.

That spark of spring this week, however, will be countered by the fact that Monday the 20th is also the beginning of the 4th quarter segment of the lunar cycle.

Renewal and motivation to move forward will not be fullfilled until the Moon catches up with the Sun in Aries at the next New Moon.

So at the time when the Sun moves into Aries for the first moment of spring, the Moon will be getting ready to enter Capriicorn to begin the 4th quarter of the lunar cycle.

The Moon will keep moving through the end of the lunar cycle till Monday the 27th, when the Moon catches up for a New Moon in Aries to erupt into our lives.

That is when the New Year fully begins.

So this week there will be mixed messages, as the first day of spring brings some renewal, but the last quarter Moon keeps us in the lunar cycle begun at the Pisces New Moon of February 26.

So don’t get up on your horse quite yet. Continue to reflect and process, heal and resolve.

With Venus still Retrograde, we can also keep some concentration on heart matters and relationships, while we wait for the strong new beginnings on March 27 at the Aries New Moon.

Our world has changed so much this past year, and many people have been processing those changes, most evidently the changing of the guard for the government of the USA.

Many people were shocked and then angry and depressed because of the results of the Presidential election, and the huge shifts brought on by the new regime.

But at the first of Spring this week, and much more so at the New Moon in Aries next week, it will be time to let go of the emotional attachment to those election results.

In fact, it will be time to do your best to let go of any attachments that keep you stuck in the past battling your internal demons.

It will be time to move forward even if all issues have not been healed or resolved.

And relationship issues are ones most likely to be unsettled at the first of Spring as Venus stays Retrograde until April 15.

A respected Native American friend of mine, who intently studies the mathematics and movements of our cosmos, shared with me recently that on April 15 at 2:43 PM EST there will be a significant turning point in our galaxy..

As that coincides with Venus going direct that day, he and I will be making a video on that day discussing the state of our world and Universe. I plan on sharing that video with all of you.

For now as we finish up the old solar year, continue to release that which is blocking your path toward fully being in this New Chapter of your life.  These blocks may be inside of you, in the form of inner programming or beliefs and attitudes, and/or outside of you in the form of jobs, relationships, homes, etc.

We are almost ready to move forward for this New Year in the New Chapter of our lives.

Yet anything we stubbornly hold onto now will put baggage into our lives that can weigh us down or even be too heavy to move forward with.

So do your best to release or at least start the process of releasing that which has already died in your heart and soul.

And since Venus is Retrograde you know it is a good time to get deeply in touch with the relationship patterns in your life that are holding you back from moving more freely in this New Year in the New Chapter of your life.

Maybe it is an old pattern that goes back to an old hurt or trauma from a previous relationship, even as far back as your childhood or even past lives.

Can you work that out with the person who you now have the old pattern with?  Do you need counseling?

Or is it soon time to end the relationship, as your “contract” is up and it is time to move on?

On another front, with the greater world in view, it is obvious that we have entered a time when our true values are, or need to be, brought to the surface of our consciousness.

What kind of a world do you want to live in?  Are you being the kind of person who lives in a way that reflects those ideals?

What stops you from living as you believe?

Are you paralyzed by fear?  Are you angry a lot of the time without knowing the true source of that anger?  And if you know the source of that anger, have you found a way to express your feelings or let go of the anger?

Identifying with being a victim will hold you back from living your life alive, authentic and empowered.

You can be loving and sensitive and still be empowered. Do you know how? If not find out how. The Universe will assist you in that process.

We will need as many people as possible now to help create the kind of world we want for the Age of Aquarius.

Believe me there are plenty of people who want to keep it just as it is or even take us back to how it used to be.

And if you remain disempowered or asleep at the wheel of your life, you are complicit in holding us back and keeping us locked up in a world that is soul dead already.

Go where there is new life now, as we move toward the Spring Equinox and even more importantly toward the New Moon in Aries on March 27 and the major turning point of April 15.

Know that the Universe is behind you with wind at your back for moving forward soon.

In the meantime use these days now to process and release and say goodbye as difficult as that may be.

When you are aligned with your own inner light and the light of the Universe, what you decide to do will be ultimately good for all concerned, even if causes some pain in the beginning.

This is meant to be an especially important year, and we need to allow our true and authentic Self to be actualized.

Being who you “should” be is not a good excuse anymore. Being who you “should” be keeps the old ways alive and dulls your true Self.

We need all hands on board now.

Till next week

Leo

Settling Into New Reality and Astrology Forecast March 12-18.

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week should be much tamer, and less stressful and intense than it has been over the last several months.

For those of you affected by the current Venus Retrograde movement, however, relationships may still bring you some intensity and perhaps stress.

The week starts out this Sunday with a Full Moon in Virgo, which means that the Sun is in Pisces and is directly opposite the Full Moon in Virgo.

This Full Moon in Virgo is at 10:54 AM EDT.  It is the first day of Daylight Savings Time for most of the USA.

This annual Full Moon in Virgo is usually pretty gentle and soft.  I have no reason to believe it will be any different for most people this year.

Both Virgo and Pisces are signs that are meant to keep egos from getting too big.  Pisces can be very selfless and surrendered, and Virgo is at its best when keeping things simple and humble.

So this Full Moon in Virgo will serve you best if you keep your ego in check and concentrate more on your job or being of service.

Now of course Venus in Aries has other aims.   It is bold and proud and concentrates on being true to Self and empowered.

So you might feel both extremes in the few days surrounding this Full Moon.   You will have a pull to stand tall and hold your ground, while also wanting to be humble and allowing of others.

Do not be afraid to assert yourself now and assert your needs. Just do your best to do that in a way that the other person will hear and take in.

Good communication is not just about self expression. It is also about listening and being aware of those you are communicating to.

There has been so much change and so much new to get used to in the world over the last several months.

The election of Donald Trump to be President represents a major turning point for our country and world.

Everything now is much more out in the open, and for better or worse people are speaking their minds now without as much filter or control.

This of course can be very dangerous as Pandora’s Box of previously suppressed emotions has broken open.

There is much more hatred shown lately and violence often feels more on the verge of erupting.

This is also happening in the greater world, as Iran and North Korea are rattling their sabers, in large part as a reaction to the new USA administration’s more militant posture.

South Korea had its President impeached this last week, and it is unpredictable how China and especially North Korea will react to that.

The USA intends to put up in South Korea a missile shield and both China and North Korea have threatened reprisals if that happens.

Since Trump was elected both North Korea and Iran have tested long range missiles, in defiance of International rules.

Before this coming summer is over much of this tension will come to a head.  And also new economic realities will show themselves before this year is out.

August is the most intense month this year, and it could be extremely powerful as there are two elipses including a most important Total Solar Eclipse in Leo that will cross all the United States for the first time since 1918.

This turning point of Trump’s election is part of the planetary movements that require our human family to experience a deep transformation.

That transformation at its best will help us to heal and to reset our priorities and hence the paradigm we operate within.

Our Earth has been beaten up, our environment and oceans made so toxic, and our human family more and more self destructive.

Weapons of mass destruction, might makes right beliefs, and such a wide separation between sexes, religions, nations, cultures, families and races make a danger for us all.

We must be ready now to evolve into states of mind and consciousness that see us all as connected, all part of the same Earth family, living in a sacred world and a meaningful Universe.

The differences between us must be honored and respected, but must not separate us from the unity of heart and soul that is always there ready to be recognized and felt.

This is Diversity within Unity and is the light of consciousness wanting to stream into each of us as a foundation for the Age of Aquarius.

Also part of the Age of Aquarius is computers, technology, and internet. This will likely not go away, it will likely instead keep expanding.

If it does go away, it will be because it has not been integrated with our bodies, our Earth and our needs for intimate connection with one another.

If we continue to create electronic bubbles for ourselves that keep us separate from others and our deeper souls and bodies, then all will crumble and die.

It is not the technology that is bad, it is what we are doing or not doing that is damaging to our hearts, souls, and intimate relationships.  Our Earth’s nature and creatures are also endangered by our disconnection.

True empathy is our potential savior now,   As we are able to feel the reality of other beings, we make the deeper connections that transform our world into a new paradigm and age. Diversity within Unity becomes a healthy reality.

If we continue to live in US versus Them consciousness, we will end up destroying one another when “push comes to shove”, which is not that far away.

Though this should be a tamer week than usual, we still are dealing with Venus Retrograde issues, and end of Winter Pisces deeper reflections.

Mid week could get somewhat more emotionally intense as the Moon goes into Scorpio from Wednesday through most of Friday.  

You may also experience some “stop signs” when the Sun squares Saturn on Friday.

And late Friday into Saturday will bring a strong tendency to tell it like it is in a frank and straight forward manner as Mercury conjuncts Venus Retrograde early Saturday the 18th

Then next week on the 20th,  Winter officially ends at the Spring Equinox as the Sun moves into Aries.

We will talk more about that next week.

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

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
