Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer and Astrology Forecast July 8-14

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Powerful and gusty winds are gathering now, so to speak. We are getting ourselves ready for the upcoming stormy eclipses.  There are 3 of them this summer .

The first one is this week on Thursday July 12 at 10:48 PM EDT.   It is a partial Lunar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer.  At the same time, Guardian of the Underworld Pluto will be making an almost exact opposition to that eclipsed New Moon.  The New Moon is at 20+ degrees of Cancer, while Pluto will be at 20+ degrees of Capricorn that day: a potential perfect storm.

The sign Cancer is an archetypal Mother, of the Divine Feminine,   It can be very nurturing and protective, with desire to take care of others.  It must, however, make sure not to hover over with over-protectiveness.

By contrast Pluto in Capricorn is a powerful force penetrating deeply into the core of something or someone, and making things passionate and Real. It must make sure to not be “too real” or destructive. But it does need to be destructive enough to put to rest a dying Chapter of life; and that makes room for a Phoenix to rise up with new life.

So this Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer this week is like a strongly protected  cocoon or womb. And Pluto in Capricorn is like a ruthless energy that wants to destroy the protective shell that has held back spirit, life and passion.

It is soon time to begin the process of leaving the Garden of protection, to cut the umbilic cord, to  rise up with the dawning.

Pluto sitting  opposite this Solar Eclipse in Cancer will provide a reality check for our individual lives, our families, and certainly the United States.

That which is outliving its intended life span,  whether that is a soul, an object, and most importantly a passing chapter of one’s life, will be challenged to let go and allow the death which precedes the birth.

If a couple has finished raising their child, who is now ready to embark on their life journey, they now are in a transition between two Chapters of their lives.

And so it is best if they look to see if there is a new “contract” to create a continued life together- or not.

In the greater world, we are experiencing a death of the old America, contrary to the MAGA culture that believes we will return to a time that has passed us by quite naturally.

That death is not going to be any easy one, as some of  the “guardians” of the old world will lie, cheat, and steal in order to keep the old country and world paradigm alive and with continued privilege.

No matter how we view the people from the MAGA world, we need to listen, not dismiss and feel hatred for.

We do not need to build a world that will then abuse power the same way. it has been.  White men, corporate ways, etc. are not the enemy.

The “enemy” is the part inside each of us that unfairly judges others, who are different than us,  and seeks to make some people better or worse than others.

So now, early this week we are in the waning part of the lunar cycle. It is a time to let go of what we need to let go.

Last quarter Moons, especially when close to the New Moon, are perfect times to release and let go.  What are you ready to shed in your life, what has outlived its purpose?

While still in the last quarter Moon phase, Jupiter changes from Retrograde to Direct Tuesday July 10.

You should get an energetic boost from this, even before the Solar Eclipse New Moon on the 12th.

Jupiter in Scorpio tends to expand into more passion and intensity, igniting one’s deeper soul and instincts. Just be careful not to set yourself up for any abuses again or to be abusive yourself.

Scorpio is power, and Jupiter in Scorpio can certainly help one to be more empowered and passionately assertive.

That Jupiter movement to Direct will expand Jupiter’s influence, yet the main course is still the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer.

Be careful to make boundaries around your emotions, not to lose your center and integrity.

The culture wars have been heating up, and will certainly boil over during Eclipse Season.

When you look at the people in leadership roles in our country and world it looks pretty bad.

I know it feels frightening sometimes to contemplate the old world and its economy crashing and burning. Would you choose instead keeping this world Trump wants to build?

What if crash and burn is the only way we can rid ourselves of selfish ego driven leaders and soul dead institutions and people, and can transform our human condition, our environment, and our way of treating one another, would you want it that way?

We are looking potentially at a great amount of chaos if all falls down. And if it doesn’t, the tyrant loving president of the USA may build a walled-in America that would be really difficult to transform. And it would become a military/corporate world even worse than the current military/corporate world.

We are at a major American and world crossroads.  One way or another we are on the precipice of major American and world transformation.

Israel, Palestine, North Korea, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Syria are lands that are in  danger and in flux. So much is coming to a head now in these places.

The economy, with over priced bubble homes, poor health care programs, school debt that is really depressing for many,  and rampant greed, needs huge change.

And much will shake up during Summer Eclipse Season.

Keep up the meditation so you can stay connected and centered during this Eclipse Season.

Have you noticed how veils are being lifted in consciousness,  and how visitors, apparently from other dimensions, are sneaking into meditation more and more?

We are not merely witnessing the Fall of the Empire.  We can also open our hearts and minds to other realities, realities aligned with the Age of Aquarius we are moving into together.

If we do not let fear, hatred, cynicism, and politics keep us down, we allow ourselves to open doors and windows into new consciousness and new possibilities.

Be discerning who you spend your time with. Do they really see you and appreciate you?  Do they suck your life spirit like a vampire?  Do they constantly pull on you to give them what they want from you?  Do they make fun of your spirituality?

It is important we each protect ourselves from toxic energy.

Take the ride of this Summer Eclipse Season 2018.  Keep yourself centered inside and open to what your soul and the Universe wants to show you.

Till next week,

Leo

Follow the Yellow Brick Road and Astrology Forecast March 4-10

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 3, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We pretty much leave Eclipse Season this coming week.  And Jupiter switches from Direct to Retrograde late Thursday March 8, putting an end to the rare event of All Planets being Direct, which has been happening since the first of this current year.

And later this week, on Friday March 9, we begin the last quarter of a lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15. A new lunar cycle begins at the Pisces New Moon on March 17.

Where are we both collectively and in our personal lives now?

We will now be able to process all the changes, events, emotions, thoughts, etc. that have been swirling in our lives this Eclipse Season.

Then after Mercury goes Retrograde on March 22, we will have even more time and inclination to reflect, ponder, analyze, and go deeper into our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls.

Then after April 15, the dogs are released through the Portal that will be opened then. There will be then a New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus, Mercury going Direct, and a Yod Finger of God encompassing the USA natal Mars.

This will be a time of important of new starts, and important world and personal events that will mostly be understood in the context of the events of the last two Eclipse Seasons.

Much has happened in our personal and collective lives since last July 2017.  Much has happened more specifically since this last January 2018, when Winter Eclipse Season 2018 began.

Remember also that on Winter Solstice 2017, Saturn went into its favorite sign Capricorn  on Winter Solstice day, making a strong conjunction with the Sun in Capricorn. This gave us a Winter ’17/’18 signature.

That signature told us how serious and down turning winter would be, and how gravity (ruled by Saturn and Capricorn) would bring a metaphorically quite strong down-pull or down-fall.

In large part because of that knowledge I predicted a severe downward turn of the then “flying high mania”  Stock Market.

And it was so.

And this is only the beginning of the downturn, which will become a crash, and then an important transformation of the USA and world economies.

The future holds a much more Bernie Sanders kind of economy, and a severely transformed world into Diversity within Unity for an Age of Aquarius.

In the meantime the process will not be pretty.  There is a USA downfall that we are experiencing led by the Trump administration, very likely coming major wars in the world, and a continued internal USA civil and culture war.

This chaos will bring many governments to try to overly control their citizens, while said chaos will also bring much creative energy to stand up to the controls and to what has been a largely corrupt and unfair old world structure. This “standing up” is already in gear.

Movement to overthrow this current USA administration through impeachment will continue to grow.

All this turmoil is a clearing for the Age of Aquarius,  coming on the heels of the chaos.

I promise videos and podcasts soon (before April 15), and some will be with David Sanipass as we did last year.

This week we experience Jupiter going Retrograde on Thursday and the 4th quarter of the current lunar cycle beginning on Friday.  And before all that both Mercury and Venus will enter Aries on Tuesday the 6th of March (my birthday).

Venus and Mercury leave flowing and sensitive Pisces to be in straight forward, direct, and assertive Aries for awhile.

Both Venus and Mercury are relational planets, so relationships can expect to be more sometimes brutally honest with one another.

If you have been walking on eggs with someone, not wanting to upset them or the status quo, you will start feeling more motivated to assert your truth with them.

In world affairs the same thing will be happening, as people will stop mincing words and instead be more open about what they want to assert.  Aries challenges and confronts, often with force.

On Thursday when up-lifting and expansive Jupiter is stationary waiting to change directions, there should be a spike in hopeful and joyful feelings.  But that will in many cases be temporary, as Jupiter will then go Retrograde for the next 4 months.

Also as Jupiter is changing directions, some people will be impulsive, saying what they would not normally say or jumping into something without caution.

The last quarter Moon is in Sagittarius on March 9. That means the Sun is in laid back Pisces, being countered by free spirited adventurous Sagittarius.  You could be conflicted between those two quite different ways of being.

We will be in the last quarter till March 17 at the New Moon in Pisces. As usual the last quarter opens us up to process and reflect on what has been and where we are at.

Sometimes energies or events are so accelerated or intense, that we lose ourselves or our perspective.

In this 4th quarter and beyond, through the soon approaching Mercury Retrograde, all the way to  April 15; we have the ability to gather ourselves, to shake off the dust of recent experiences, and to look our lives and selves right in the eye of truth.

If you judge yourself or others too harshly now, however, you will be unaligned and taken off track.   You are human and we make mistakes, and all we can do is apologize if need be, atone (at-one), learn form the mistakes, and promise our selves to do our best to never repeat the same mistakes.

Many of you who regularly read this blog, consider your self on a soul’s journey.  And right now, our souls are in the beginning stages of a world storm, a storm that seeks to shake up the status quo.  It is not an easy time for many now.

I know many of you are quite concerned and sometimes fearful of what is happening to our country and world..

If you look from a bigger picture at our human story over the past hundreds of years, you will see many challenges and forks in the road.  And though we sure messed up a lot, we also are quite resilient and resourceful and creative.  And we have been incredibly loving and caring so much of the time, even if history books do not tell us that.

We have created such works of beauty and artistry, built awesome civilizations, adventurously travelled so far, even to the Moon.  We are the only Earth creatures to do all this.

Yes we have also been so nasty, murderous, self serving, greedy, and hateful.

But we always do seem to somehow grow and evolve in so many ways.

And we are all now so close to one another through mass communication, social media,  mass transportation, world commerce, and all together under the Sun and Moon, and having the same basic human needs.

So now our growing edge is knowing and honoring our connections, not seeing ourselves as all separate and enemies with one another. It is no longer good enough to only know connections based on negotiations, trades, and contrived circumstances.

It is time to know and honor that we are all connected in our hearts and souls naturally, all parts of the same human family.  It is time to know that the Universe has all the dots connected, not random. It is time to know we live a meaningful existence, on a sacred home planet, in a beautiful diverse Universe, all together as One.

Dark and light, male and female, yin and yang- many differences but all connected as One.

Deeply knowing all this will help us to evolve to our next level, all in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Humble, Grateful, Surrendered and Astrology Forecast February 25- March 3

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on February 24, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

During the Sun in Pisces time of year now, we process, reflect, and go deeper into greater insights and sensitive feelings.

We are still in Eclipse Season even though the last of two eclipses this season is now in our rear view mirror.

That last eclipse, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius, was on February 15.  As a new moon, it began a lunar cycle and motivated new beginnings.

These Aquarius beginnings are about groups, communities, and social consciousness.  It also is about respecting our own and others’ distinct individuality, even if said individualism is outside the usual boxes and social confines.

So now people are more galvanized to identify with “birds of a feather” groups or communities they feel resonant with.

In the larger world, there is a very polarized and combative separation between USA cultures or groups.

Around that Solar Eclipse in Aquarius there was another horrific mass killing in a high school in Florida.

One of the most glaring fallouts of those murders has been a spotlight shown on the differences between two USA communities.

One is getting more and vociferous about limiting accessibility to military style weapons that have been involved in so many mass murders of innocent people.

The other group, backed by the NRA, is not very open to any gun law changes.  They persist in believing citizens need those weapons in order to defend against a potentially tyrannical USA government of the future. Interestingly many corporations since the massacre are severing their contractual ties to the NRA because of community outrage with laws.

These two distinctly different USA cultures came out of any closets they were in during the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo last August.   Charlottesville riots happened then and caused the murder of a young woman.

Make no mistake about it, these culture wars resemble the differences between cultures during the USA Civil War in 1860-1865.   Southern plantation owners owned slaves and wanted to keep them so that their financial profits could be maintained or increased.

There were two very distinctly opposed cultures that did not live together very well.

And now rural and southern USA people are so different than people in more cosmopolitan areas of the USA.

Something is breaking apart within the USA.  The recent downfall of the USA Stock Market shows more potential for the breakdown of the current system in the USA.

And in the world outside the USA borders, there are growing USA war cries against Iran and North Korea, two countries than were deemed “Axis of Evil” by George Bush.

The Trump administration is showing that it will bully those countries into stopping their nuclear programs, even as Iran has been part of an agreement to hold back that nuclear program. They have not broken the rules of that agreement.

The USA invaded North Korea in the early ’50s and destroyed much of the North while killing so many of its people.  And so now North Korea has determined it cannot trust the USA and must defend itself with nuclear weapons that the USA already has in great abundance and has used.

And both Israel and the USA are putting Iran in their crosshairs.  The USA controlled Iran and put up a puppet president that they dominated.

Then Iran had its revolution in 1979 which threw out that old government and USA dominance there.

The threat of war against North Korea, Iran, and Syria is very real now. And Russia and China could also get involved.

After April 15 is when the threats of war and a bigger stock market crash will get stronger and stronger.

The System of the USA is in the process of transformation, and it must go back to its beautiful core values in that process.

Self Determination, freedom and liberation, equality and justice for all are Universal values that apply to All peoples all over the world.

We have invaded other countries, like Iraq and Syria and Libya, that have not attacked us, nor do they pose much realistic threat to destroy the most powerful country in the world. We have all too often imposed our values and ways of governing on others without their consent.

Can you imagine how we would react to any country that invaded us (for our own good they would say) or tried to dominate us into living our lives as they deemed correct?

The USA natal Pluto in Capricorn in its second house is being squared by Uranus in Aries. This is the beginning of the transformation of the USA military and economic power in the world.  Within the next 4-5 years Saturn, Jupiter, and then Pluto itself will conjunct the USA natal Pluto (its first Pluto Return).

This is the timeframe for transformation of the USA Military/Economic Complex that dominates so much of our country’s “we the people”. as well as the peoples’ of the world.

This transformation will help create the new Age of Aquarius, an age of Diversity within Unity, equality, and freedom.

The USA Moon in Aquarius, which so represents this new age, is shown in our Constitution and Bill of Rights. We believe in Equality, Freedom of Expression, Self Determination, and liberation of all peoples so they can, as “we the people”, govern and take responsibility for our human community and sacred Earth.  This is for all peoples, cultures, genders, sexual orientations, spiritual or religious ways of being or non religious ways of being-  All Over the World.

This week, the now passed Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius has transitioned to the full moon, a Full Moon in Virgo on March 1 at 7:51 PM EST. This full moon has Neptune strong in its signature.

Full Moons in Virgo always have the Sun in Pisces opposite the Moon in Virgo.

This is a relatively gentle full moon energetically, one that requires a letting go of ego controls, and a surrender to something greater than one’s ego. Neptune makes it even more necessary to let go and surrender. Spaciness, foggy mind, imagination, and contact with inner spiritual world may be stronger at this time.

Virgo is into service, simplicity, order, and physical purity.  It is most resonant with the “real” world.

Pisces is into being in frequencies, dimensions, feelings, and tones that are not not seen in the material world.  It seeks purity of the psyche, feelings and emotions.

Music sounds and feelings are a world of Pisces.  Virgo is the techniques and instruments that allow the music to be heard and felt.

Meditation is Pisces but the techniques used to get into that deeper meditative state is Virgo.

When body and soul are united, Pisces and Virgo are in balance.   Pisces goes with the flow, Virgo needs to be in charge of efficiency and creating order.   Virgo needs perfection and the ability to fix what is not perfect.

Pisces needs to let go and trust that all will turn our fine if we surrender our control.

So use this Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo to process and heal, to reconcile, to show what we can be grateful for, to humble us.

We are all moving in our consciousness and lives into just where we need to be to meet the changing World around us.

Remember that all is happening for a reason, and in the bigger picture you are growing, learning, and evolving in alignment with the Universe and our Soul Self.

If “we are the ones we have been waiting for”, we must know that the challenges in the World are OUR challenges, ones we are very equipped to deal with, no matter how it may look on the outside.

If we let fear take over we lose our way.

In the bigger picture all is evolving into the Age of Aquarius.  And it could not happen if there was not enormous change and transformation, or if we hung on too tightly to what used to be, or if we demand change happens exactly the way we need it to happen.

Till next week,

Leo

Navigating Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast February 4-10.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are smack dab in the middle of Winter Eclipse Season 2018.  Last week was the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo.  The week after this one, on February 15, is the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.

We are always taken out of the same-old, same-old patterns of thought, emotions, or behavior patterns during Eclipse Seasons, and this one is no different.

As we are taken out of our normal patterns, we are on our toes and ready to meet the challenges and changes.

In the greater world the stock market downfall began last week.   This will continue.  Now it is possible and even likely that there will be gasps of manic energy reviving the stock climb, but it will be short lived as the overall direction is downward now, as we have stated before.

Before the end of the year, the value of stocks will be much less and the true condition of the economy will be more evident.  This is the beginning of the transformation of the Military/Economic Complex that runs the USA and much of the world.

This transformation will accelerate from 2018-2022, as at the same time the Age of Aquarius will be having its buds pushing through the branches of our world.

The Aquarius emphasis of the Eclipse Season will get even stronger as we move through the Aquarius Solar Eclipse New Moon on February 15.

That means that collective community efforts will get more powerful, and the push by Inspector Mueller to investigate the Trump administration will get more powerful too.   Notions of impeachment will become more than just notions.

The distraction of the FBI Memo will not stop the impeachment train from chugging forward.

So there are two collective efforts now, one more pushed by Democrats toward possible impeachment, and one more pushed by Republicans toward discrediting Clinton, Obama and Democrats for being in collusion with the FBI against Trump.

This is an extension of the culture wars that became more evident during the last Eclipse Season with Charlottesville.

And speaking of the connections between last eclipse season and this one, the North Korea issue is still red hot even though North and South Korea are having a peaceful get together at the Winter Olympics.

In my estimation the Trump administration is planning a hit on North Korea this year if North Korea does not promise to begin dismantling their nuclear program. And it is not likely that North Korea will do so.

And keep an eye on the Middle East this Eclipse Season also, as the Trump decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has not felt the full vehemence against that decision yet.

The Me-Too movement, getting further mileage with the convictions against Larry Nasser for sexually abusing so many young girls, is not done yet by a long shot.

Any group missions you have now, or socially conscious groups you plan on joining forces with, will have the winds of the Universe blowing at your back for forward movement.

Sometimes during these Eclipse Seasons events happen that seem to be taking one backward and into negative places.

From a bigger picture this is necessary in the process of transformation, as more purging is needed of old attitudes, beliefs, and ways of being from the past.

One’s demons or ghosts from the past often need to be seen in the light of day in order to integrate those shadow parts of self in a more constructively holistic manner.   Demons locked in closets are ultimately much more dangerous.

But if you keep seeing your life from “glass half-full” viewpoints, you will see the synchronicities, feel the magic, and know the Universe is talking to you.

When you recognize the Universe is speaking to you with its signs, symbols, and guide posts; you will then be more able to act in accordance with the Universe, using your intentions to co-create your life.

This is why it is important to not be controlled by the programmed world paradigm.  That programming tends to keep us locked in fear, not truly able to recognize the Universe/the Gods/God/Goddess/spirit/soul/spirit guides/angels (or whatever your belief system calls it) talking to you to help you on your path.

You are never alone, though sometimes it feels one has been abandoned by the God-force.   That is when we have dark nights of the soul that make us feel so alone without meaning.

We live in a meaningful Universe, helping us to evolve and contribute to the world and human family on our sacred Earth.

If  you see through the eyes of the old paradigm, you see everything that happens as random, run by good or bad luck.  And you will hear in the background of your mind  mental tapes of “Us versus Them”, good guys versus bad guys, male against female,  dark versus light, Judeo/Christian versus Muslim, hetero versus homo,  etc.

Yes we have opposites but they are connected at a deep level and though they may butt heads sometimes, they are together as One.

Nothing can truly unglue the circle of wholeness, except us in our own minds and hearts.  The Moon stays round, the Sun shines, Earth keeps alive no matter what we think or do.

But we can self destruct and eliminate ourselves. And that happens if we hate ourselves or others.

We are complicated as humans, not good or bad, just what we are.  We can make the best of what we are and what we have been given; or we can judge and separate our selves as good or evil. That battle will destroy us as we will hate a part of ourselves that we judge as bad or good.

And do you not think it is revealing that every side thinks it is the good ones and those they oppose are the bad or evil ones. North Korea and Iran demonize us and we demonize them. Is one right and the other wrong? Or are both victims of an old paradigm that separates by demonization, and then seeks to destroy the “bad guys”.

Once Germany and Japan were the evil ones and now they are good because they are on our side now.

Lets wake up now and know we are all one, with many different faces: Equal in the eyes of the Universe- creating Diversity Within Unity. Age of Aquarius.

Till next week and the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius

Cleansing and Clearing and Astrology Forecast August 30- September 5

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 29, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this on Saturday August 29, we are moving through a gentle Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces today.

This is a healing full moon, and healing is something many of us are in need of now, after a rough recent time period.

You should be able to feel this full moon all the way to Monday August 31, then afterwards we move down through the waning half of the lunar cycle that was begun on August 15 at the Leo New Moon.

Neptune is conjunct the Moon in Pisces and Jupiter is conjunct the Sun in Virgo, making it a rather spiritual full moon.

It is a good time now to let go and surrender to the natural flow of the Universe, without agenda or too much drive to accomplish. You may feel a bit spacey and unfocused at times, but that will help you to let go instead of pushing too hard.

Yes the Virgo part of this lunation requires us to put things in order, but that should be done as gently and stressless as possible.  Pisces and Neptune require flow and ease.

This full moon will put us all into the right frame of mind for the next couple of weeks leading up to the eclipses.

We are coming down into a time period of cleaning up, fixing, healing, imagining, and preparing for the intensity of the eclipses, the first one on September 13- A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo.

Before that happens we are also finishing up a Venus Retrograde cycle.  Venus goes back Direct on September 6.

It is time between now and then to find some resolution around heart issues.  There has been so much intensity surrounding relationships since Venus went Retrograde in late July.

So many of us have had all our weaknesses, wounds, and traumas around relationship patterns come up to the light of our consciousness.  The pains of the past, including early family issues, have been thrown into our faces.

The emotional reactions for some of us have been very powerful and disconcerting.  We may have thought that certain issues were already resolved or healed, but found out there was more work to be done.

If we want health in our relationships, relationships of all kinds, then it is essential that we clean out old dramas and traumas from the emotional and mental root or core of the issues.

You may have attracted someone into your life who triggered a pattern or ego story that was originally created to cope with a wound or trauma from the past.

It is necessary as we work out the issue with someone or let someone go, that we get to core or root causes.

If for example you find that your current relationship has shown a pattern of someone being unavailable and someone else begging for attention and love, you must trace that pattern as far back as you can and as deep in your soul as possible.

Perhaps a parent or previous relationship started up this pattern. Or perhaps a past life interaction did so.

Or maybe a natal astrological pattern shows a difficulty with receiving love.

Getting to the core of the emotional issue will help you to release the trauma, heal the trauma as best you can, and reopen your heart to trust that a sharing of love can happen for you.

As painful as this Venus Retrograde period is for some people, keep in mind that the difficulties came your way in order for you to heal and transform old patterns so you can better grow and open to new ways of relating.

After September 6, when Venus goes back direct, you will start to gain more clarity, resolution, and direction in relationships.

Hold off until after that time before jumping to any conclusions or making any important definite plans around heart issues.

Remember that Mercury Retrograde tends to get us mentally off our usual track, Venus Retrograde gets our hearts off their usual track.

After it goes direct our hearts begin to get more clear, to integrate what happened during the Retrograde period, and to find a new normal for our hearts.

All this relationship clearing will happen just in time to meet up with the eclipses.

Venus also rules money and financial resources. That is the Taurus side of Venus, as Venus is the ruling planet of Taurus.

So money issues are needing to be worked out now too. And of course in the global framework the stock markets around the world have been in crash mode.

China’s rapidly falling stock market and economy has had a huge effect on global economic stability.

In the bigger picture there is a realignment of power sharing and resource sharing happening in the world.

The message by Bernie Sanders is resonating with so many people because it is obvious we need to transform our global economic system so that it will be fair and equitable to all the human family.   Global Economic domination by Big Corporate and its marriage partner Big Government are taking away freedoms and the ability to live a comfortable life for individual humans.

This inequity does not come from the Universe or God/Goddess, but created by humans who have the ability to choose and create as we see fit.

In an Age of Aquarius individual humans gain more power and responsibility for our own world. We become stewards of our Earth and its creatures- not dominators but stewards healing and protecting the planet.

Once we have sufficiently awakened on a collective level and broken the chains locking up our minds, souls, hearts and bodies by programming from the Military/Economic paradigm that runs the world; then we will be ready to more fully create a world in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

The downfall of our current inequitable economic system and the breakdown of the old power structure in the world will leave sufficient opening for new energies of love and truth to help us create anew.

These breakdowns are getting more and more immanent and each of us will need to adjust our lives in accordance with the changes. I am not a financial expert at all, but I would advise everyone to not be dependent on conventional wisdom or traditional institutions anymore.

I am not sure of the timing, as people can create life support systems, so to speak, to delay the inevitable, as we have done with the financial bailouts and printing of money we do not have. But Nature always wins out eventually.

I do believe, however, that the eclipse storms of September will at least continue to break down the old world and bring us new ideas and ways for a new world.

Keep up your meditation and spiritual practices so you will know that all is happening in accordance with the Universe’s natural cycles and energies, with nothing to fear.

You will be in the right places at the right times if you can stay aware, awake, and centered in your deeper soul and the Source.

We are about to move even more rapidly into the energies of the Age of Aquarius.   Keep in mind that all the difficulties we are going through now are to get us prepared for the transformational winds ahead.

You are releasing that which is not aligned with your authentic soul and its destiny now.

If you notice that many more conventional people seem to not be as affected as you are now, remember that you are on a different path as a pioneer into the new world.

As such you will be more prepared for what is coming, and not as governed by fear and panic when the bigger changes come our way.

Till next week,

Leo

Changing Direction and Astrology Forecast May 24-30

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Well we are now right in the middle of Mercury Retrograde, which will last until June 11.

Last week just after Mercury went Retrograde and during Venus’ triggering of the Uranus/Pluto square, some important world events occurred.

As we predicted last week, Mercury Retrograde’s tendency to have people rethink previous certainty brought a reversal of thinking on the Iranian nuclear agreement.

Iran’s Supreme Leader stated that Iran’s military bases and nuclear scientists would be off limits for inspections and interrogations.  The USA had previously believed those inspections and interrogations were agreed upon issues in the preliminary agreement between Iran and world powers.

This rethinking could put an end to the agreement and thus further inflame the Middle East.

And the Islamic State last week took over two important cities in Iraq and Syria:  Ramadi in Iraq and Palmyra in Syria.  The Islamic State has now captured around half of the territory there and has also made advances in Yemen and Libya.  They have seriously changed the reality in the Middle East and world, and make the possibility of ground troop intervention by the USA more likely before too long.

Add the newly sworn in hardline militaristic Israeli government and the Sunni/Shia conflicts expanding through the animosity between Saudi Arabia and Iran- show us how the Middle East tinder box can be lit afire.  And then major conflict and chaos would erupt.

Also last week as the Uranus/Pluto square was triggered, China gave stern warning to the USA to keep its distance from China’s newly created man-made island in the South China Sea. USA planes were encroaching on that space, which looks to be a military base.

Though it is not certainly known whether those islands were created in Chinese territory or International waters; nevertheless it is crazy for the USA to be out there near China’s territory.

Can you imagine the outrage if China was flying its planes near USA military bases, even if in technically international waters?

The Age of Aquarius demands a world of equality and Diversity in Unity.     All of the potential conflicts, as horrible as they may be, meant to break down the current power structures of the world, so new energies and hence a new world community can be built.

The current world structure is held up by a military and economic paradigm and reality.   Those two legs of the old age’s strength will be broken, so a new world can be built.

That means we will need to build a new global economic system, as well as new ways to get along with one with another.

Weapons of mass destruction will have no place in a new world, meaning no one can have them.  As we fret about Iran creating a nuclear bomb,  please remember that the USA is the only country to have used nuclear weapons to kill thousands of people.  And Israel own likely hundreds of their own.

In August of 1945, now almost 70 years ago, we killed over 200,000 mostly innocent civilian people in Nagasaki and Hiroshima with the Atom Bomb.

“Mortal Enemy” attitudes have created these bombs.  These attitudes are prevalent all over the world, and combined with weapons of mass destruction, we are always in grave danger.

Now we are on the verge of a New Age which will transform these attitudes and realities.    But first we will need a huge collective wake-up call.

And economically speaking, there is way too much disparity in money distribution in this world.  A relative few own so much of our world. I saw a show recently that revealed that people in Asia were selling their kidneys in order to feed their families. And in some countries families sell their very young daughters to sex peddlers in order to survive.

Our economic system needs to change so these injustices will end.

I have predicted that by Autumn 2015, the world will have changed quite dramatically from how it was in early 2014- before the Cardinal Grand Cross.  And of course a market crash is part of that transformation.

It is possible, however, that “life support systems” will be built through more monetary easement and printing up of money, for instance.

In that case “death” of the old will be postponed a bit, but not for long.  2016 would be the latest time I can see for such transformation.

Many people are already waking up all over the world, especially seen through many so-called young Millennials who know they cannot fit into the world as it is.  Do you truly fit in, whatever your age may be?

During this current Mercury Retrograde period, rewind the clock of your life, and see how much you may have just slowly accepted the rules of the old paradigm in order to fit in and survive.

In the process of this acceptance of the programming, you may have fallen into jobs, relationships, and lifestyles that are quite opposed to your Truth, quite opposed to your heart’s knowing.

And now if those relationships, jobs, etc are being threatened or if you are feeling restless to make big change,  you are being awakened to be in alignment with the new world being born.

When we are not aligned with the truth in our hearts, minds and bodies; we are more susceptible to illness, physically, emotionally and mentally.

So even more important than leaving people or situations that are not aligned for us anymore, is the need to leave and release old programmed tapes in our minds and hearts that keep us stuck in those old relationships or situations.

Those tapes have created the people or situations that keep us feeling trapped in our life choices. Those tapes may have created feelings of unworthiness, or judgments of our essential nature.

And those feelings or judgments have brought us to the choices that created our current life.

As you change those tapes and the beliefs and attitudes that came with them, you are shifting your energy field, transforming your “frequency”.    And then those changes will help you make better choices and will truly attract to you different people and situations.  This is what the so-called law of attraction is really all about.

It is not about attracting to yourself riches and fame. It is about attracting to your self that which is right for you, right for the authentic self or higher self you are wanting to live in you.

The ego can then no longer run your life and continue to make what you “should be” or “should want” of utmost importance.

This Mercury Retrograde time period may help you to question the direction you have previously chosen.   And if that questioning leads to reversing that direction as Mercury goes back Direct again; you need to know that was necessary as you were travelling down a road not aligned with truth and love, not aligned with your authenticity and deeper soul’s intentions.

till next week,

Leo

Opening up to the Heart of the Universe and Astrology Forecast October 6-12.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 5, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in a new lunar cycle, which was created at the Libra New Moon on October 4.    This lunar cycle will lead into the Full Moon in Aries on October 18.

That Full Moon will be much stronger than the usual Full Moon, as it is also a Lunar Eclipse.   That Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Libra/Aries is to be the first of two eclipses this Autumn Eclipse Season 2013.

This Eclipse Season also includes a Hybrid Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio; an exact square of revolutionary and evolutionary Uranus square Pluto;  Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio; and the likely appearance of Comet Ison.

Starting now and moving through an even more powerful Spring of 2014, we are in a most important approximately 9 month gestation period for the United States and the world.

America’s superpower status is in the process of breaking down.  This Empire is on its last legs, as we move beyond Empires and into an Aquarian Age of equality, power to the people, and Diversity in Unity.

Since the Military/Economic power structure is the engine powering this Empire, it is that which is breaking down and being transformed now.

It is part of this transformation that brings us into more dialogue with other nations instead of  going to war, as is happening with Syria and Iran.  Most would say this a good part of the process, a making relationship with other peoples instead of domination and violent conflict.  But know there are elements in this world that desire to reignite domination and war back into our lives during this transitional time.

Our economic structure is also breaking down. You can see that as you watch our mostly dysfunctional two party government system make a mess of its budget, its debt, and its economic health.

The Government is shut down or slimmed down or whatever.   There is a worse crisis looming, however, with the need to raise the debt ceiling, an issue that needs to be resolved around the time of the first eclipse on October 18.

There are some planetary full circles occurring this autumn in conjunction with the eclipses- full circles connected to the Stock Market collapse in October 1929.

Uranus, which has an 84 year cycle, is back to where it was when the market crashed back in 1929.   This is the first time since 1929 that Uranus has been in Aries.   Additionally there was a Scorpio Solar Eclipse just days after that market crash in 1929, and there will be another one on November 3 this year.   There have been only three other Scorpio Solar Eclipses since that one in 1929.

And Neptune is exactly opposite to where it was in 1929: It was in Virgo then, it is in Pisces now. And both in 1929 and now it is making an aspect to the USA natal Venus, a planet that gives indication of economic health and welfare.  Neptune tends to dissolve that which it aspects.

We may not be looking at anything as dramatic as a stock market crash, but we can expect an strong economic downturn at least.

And then in April of 2014 there will be Grand Cross of planets in cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, which will include the next exact square of Uranus and Pluto within it.   And most significantly,  the USA natal Sun at 13 degrees of Cancer will be exactly in the cross hairs of that Grand Cross.  The United States will change greatly over the next 6-9 months. And to make everything even more powerfully important, there will be two eclipses that month of April also.  Those eclipses will be the next Eclipse Season after this one we are now in this autumn.

Very meaningful world events will be playing out within the next several months and beyond, events that will shake up and transform the old world paradigm we have been saluting to for centuries.

And in America, we need to clean up our mess and return to the values and principles for which we stand.  The Democratic and Republican parties are failing and new parties are needed to inspire our people again.   The Libertarian and Green parties now claim our more pure values and hopefully will gain in popularity over the next several years.

We can also expect more movements toward anarchy at the same time, a desire to break down institutions that no longer serve our world, including religions that have largely lost the original values from which they were founded.

The first truly global Empire Rome was begun at the beginning of the Pisces Age over 2000 years ago. And the seeds of the first global religions were also planted then as the Christ was born at the beginning of that age.

Now in the transition between ages, as we move more strongly into the Age of Aquarius, there is a transformation of our global village happening, one assisted by the equality and decentralization of the Internet and its social networks.    And there is a Spiritual Renaissance happening also, as humans are learning to connect with spirit and soul without the need for huge institutional Religions of control.

We are each a part of a great global shift into an Aquarian Age.   What you do in your own consciousness and life contributes to the health of our nation and world as we evolve into this new age.

For each of us there is a need to release old programming from society and families that tends to keep us in our fears and our controlling egos,    There is need to clean up our individual chakra systems of toxins, stuck energies and patterns, so we can be receptive to new light and energy  seeking to enter our bodies and souls.

This will bring to us new consciousness that is aligned with the Universe in its voyage to an Age of Aquarius here on Planet Earth.

For now, we have just entered with baby steps into the Autumn Eclipse Season 2013.  Energies will progressively intensify as we approach the first eclipse on October 18.

The Libra New Moon shows each of us our need to connect with others, and to see the connections we all have with one another and with everything in the world and Universe.   You may feel alone sometimes, but if you open your heart wider you will know you are always loved.

See you next week,

Leo
