Moving Forward as Mars Goes Direct and Astrology Forecast May 18-24

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week has planetary movements that energetically will orient us in two opposing directions.

On the one hand,  the Scorpio Full Moon last week pretty much brought an intense climax and end to Spring Eclipse Season 2014.  And of course the Cardinal Grand Cross played a huge role in making that Eclipse Season extremely intense and one to be remembered for a long time.  But now as we begin to leave that Eclipse Season, we also enter the waning slow-down half of the lunar cycle.

It is time to come down and look at what has been left to us in the wake of that Eclipse Season.    We have entered a new chapter of our lives, have moved more fully into honoring our truth and the authentic soul’s path we are on.   Events have shown us the way into letting go of the old chapter of our lives, letting go of old patterns of thought and behavior that are not in alignment with this new chapter of life we have entered.

We are coming down into our souls and bodies for healing, after the buzz of intensity that spiked us forward in our personal soul evolution. Hence we are ready to now reflect on what has happened and to gain some perspective and insight on where are lives are at now.

This could be a rather sobering time for some, facing up to realities or practical assessments of our life.

But yet the other counter energy on our doorstep is Mars going Direct late this Monday May 19.  That means we are feeling a force that makes us feel we are ready to move forward, to own this new chapter of our lives, to find ways to make our life work in all new ways.

We are closer to knowing what we want and where we are going as Mars is going Direct.  We may not know exactly what we are doing yet, but at least we sense the path we want to walk on in this new chapter of our lives.

In the greater world, everything has now been put in place for huge life altering events coming soon.

Russia and China are flexing their nationalistic muscles, wanting more power in the world.  Russia has annexed Crimea from Ukraine and seems to have designs on bringing back some of the glory from their Soviet Union days.

China has territorial conflicts with Japan, Phillipines, Viet Nam and other countries, and recently has made aggressive movements, asserting their formidable power.

India has elected a new prime minister, one who does not seem to care about making relationship with the USA or western powers.  Iran is at a turning point in its relationships with world powers.  There is a possible deal to be made around their nuclear program, and if not there is likely military conflict on the way.

The Palestinians have become more whole as Hamas has made a pact with more moderate Palestinian political powers, and are getting further away from making peace with Israel. Big conflicts are likely coming soon.

North Korea is said to be about to launch another missile, in defiance of the UN and world powers.

Syria is still in civil war, and Ukraine is breaking apart.  The world is on the verge of great transformation, a restructuring of power, moving into a multi-polar world.

Empires and Superpowers will become a reality of the past, and a more equitable Diversity in Unity world is developing.  That means a wholeness is needed that holds the differences together as one.   And Male and Female can be held as one, like a yin/yang symbol.

Women are becoming more powerful, and are doing so by claiming their feminine Power, moving away from a more male form of gaining their power.

’60s feminism got the ball rolling for women gaining more self respect, but the new generations of women are realizing that playing the man’s game out in the world did not bring them to true Feminine power.

Now many are wanting to change the world into one with more “femininity’, more love and compassion, more true honoring of Female and Female Power.

There has been a programming in our psyches that Female and Female ways are weak. There is programming that has sought to demean vulnerability and has sought to make fun of spirituality and a more feminine sense of what that means.

If it is not “logical” and proven by scientific methods, or is not in tune with a male God of religion, then it is put down- by both men and women.

The Feminine is needed in our world, so we are not just answering to a dog eat dog, logic driven, competitive paradigm.

And of course the true Masculine needs a revival, as we need a force of courage to speak the truth, to stand up for what we believe in and know is right.  We need to learn how to be true to our authentic selves, not what authority or convention tells us to be.

And most of all we need to bring the masculine and feminine sides of nature into loving balance and relationship, working together and not in battle with one another.

And our LGBT community has been gaining more acceptance and respect.    Just recently the macho dominated sports world has had people coming out as Gay, like in the NFL and NBA.

And we have a President who is half African American, and a country less tolerant of bigotry as was seen in the backlash against Clive Bundy and the president of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team.

We as a collective human community are seeing more clearly the path into an Age of Aquarius, especially so after this Eclipse Season.

But keep in mind that the forces that want to keep the old ways and old age in power are still strong.    And there are many explosive events coming our way, events that will break down that which is blocking the path forward.

Be ready for events that will include violent conflicts in the world and for financial realities to shift and change.  When they do it will seem like we are going backwards and making no progress. Please remember then that it is part of the transformational process of clearing our old patterns, old beliefs, old ways of being.

We can see where we are going now, and the Age of Aquarius is in sight.  But get ready for the next 18 months or so to be intense with both world and personal events that will be a part of the transformation and healing needed to bring us to our New World.

This week on the 19th, Mars goes Direct and we move forward. Then the Sun moves into mercurial Gemini the next day May 20, to add more positive energy to our lives, energy that is mentally bright and seeking to communicate.

It begins a month that is good for learning and educating, for light social activities, for gaining new information and delivering information, for asking questions and answering questions, for diverse activities and much mental activity.  Be careful not to be overwhelmed or too scattered, and remember to stay grounded with all the mental activity going through you.

See you next week,

Leo

On the Other Side of the Bridge and Astrology Forecast May 4-10

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 3, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

The buzz of intensity from April’s most powerful planetary movements may have lessened now, but please keep in mind that the Grand Cross, though weakened,  is still intact this coming week.

We may feel like dusting ourselves off from the storm debris of April and moving on, but the aftermath and aftershocks are now a reality.

We have, however, crossed the bridge between chapters of our life, and we are on the other side- in our personal new worlds.

Whatever events will occur over the next several weeks will have a reference point to the shakeups of March and April 2014.  They will be the result of what shifted during that time period.

Many people have been experiencing rather dramatic breakdowns of what was not working anymore,  and/or breakthroughs out of stuck places and into new zones of consciousness, reality or behavior.

For some of you the changes may have been more subtle, but nevertheless your reality has been shifting in some way or other.

Collectively our human family has really been evolving at a core level the last couple of months, and the United States just began this last month what will be a very powerful transformation.

The energetic motivations to leave our status quo “normal” default internal positions have been most powerful.  We are being pushed into new consciousness and new lives so that we can move in alignment with a human evolutionary leap needed now.

The force of light from an Age of Aquarius is strong and it is wanting to move through each of our consciousness’s and lives.  Any blocks our consciousness or lives seek to maintain because of understandable needs to feel the security of familiarity, cannot last.

So of course there are breakdowns of that which cannot move forward as it is.  But for some who were ready the breakthroughs have been fast and powerful and sometimes even feeling quite magical.

The Universe is blowing its winds at your back if you are ready for change.   Issues that have previously seemed stuck beyond repair have recently found new pathways of resolution or liberation.

If instead you are still trying to fix your problems with the same old tried but not true efforts,  the level of frustration and failure can become overwhelming.

There are solutions, but you must be willing to go outside your usual maze of patterns that keep your consciousness in a box.

Open up and trust your heart to lead the way.  It may bring you more chaos and energies you find it difficult to control, but it will bring you to realignment with the Universe and your authentic soul Self.  And you will feel more alive again.

There is still time now, before Mars goes Direct on May 19, to take care of your self and to get in touch with what you truly want and desire for your self.   In relationships the balance between your needs and desires and what your partner or friend may want or desire can be found before Mars goes back Direct.  Mars retrograde for a couple more weeks can also give you a reality check on your personal will and how that affects others.   And of course yours or others’ anger issues can also be looked at more deeply during the Mars Retrograde period.

After May 19 there should be a feeling of being more ready to move forward in new ways, new ways that are aligned with this new chapter in your life.

In the greater world,  the conflict in Ukraine; the “peace” process between Israel and Palestine; the conflict in Syria, and the meetings being held with Iran over its nuclear issues were all stirred up during the Eclipse Season.  Issues with North Korea and conflicts between China and Japan/South Korea/Phillipines over territory were also exacerbated this last month.

Racial issues were also stirred up more with the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers and with Clive Bundy, while anti government issues were stirred up over grazing land for that same Clive Bundy in Nevada.

And very importantly, Benghazi has moved back front and center in the news as a previously unknown email was revealed. That email suggests that the government was lying about the terrorist attack that killed 4 Americans in order to win the presidential election in 2012.

That revelation could move all the way into desires for impeachment of the president.

Keep in mind that what ever was shaken up during the Eclipse/Grand Cross season has more importance than it may look like on the surface right now.

For instance the situation in Ukraine is much more than just a conflict between Russia and Ukraine.  Much of the world has a stake in how this turns out, similar to what has been happening in Syria.

But unlike Syria, there is an overt battle of wills going on between Russia and the United States that has the potential (especially so because of the planetary energies synchronizing with this conflict) to blow up into a world war.

Drastic events in personal lives have been happening in order to break out of personal paradigms, beliefs or habits that have been blocking the now very powerful frequencies of new consciousness of a new age.

And the greater world will also need more drastic events to unfold in order for us to have open doors into collective new consciousness for evolution into a new age.

These earth shaking and human changing events will soon become much stronger, and will stay strong at least over the next 18 months or so.

For the immediate week ahead, however,  we are in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon on April 29. Change is still blowing in.

But at the same time it is very important now to take care of your self, nurture and heal your self, keep your self grounded and sane.

The changes are inevitable, but how you handle them is under your control.   If you add to your stress with blame and judgment, beating up your self or others, you are missing the opportunities now to open to healing and solution, to breakthroughs and new pathways.   It is healthy to take responsibility for what one may have done wrong, and to learn from one’s mistakes. But it is counterproductive and unhealthy to beat up your self or others for things not turning out how you wanted them to be.

Personal growth and evolution are dependent on each of us knowing we are on a human path that requires us to be learning as we go, not being perfect at any point along the way.

See you next week,

Leo
