Navigating Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast February 4-10.

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,


I have created a new YouTube presentation for the Spring Portal.

A new Autumn YouTube will be presented in September.

Changing Direction and Astrology Forecast May 24-30

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 23, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

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,

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,

Breaking Out, Breaking Open and Astrology Forecast August 18-24

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We move this week into the third and last week of the Gate opening transformation of August 2013.    It started at the New Moon in Leo on August 6 as Jupiter was making opposition to Pluto.

This week Jupiter squares Uranus and there is a Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius.  Whatever has been still slumbering in your recent transformational journey will get a wake up call, so you will be able to continue your progress.

This Jupiter square Uranus aspect, as the Moon in is turning Full, will likely bring more chaotic energies along with the feelings of breaking out and opening up.   Liberation is in the air, and it will be easier this week to free your self from old patterns and cycles that have tended to linger. Making any kind of change, whether it is about attitude or belief or life situation or relationship patterns, is more doable now.  Emotions may overflow for some as a result of Jupiter in Cancer square Uranus in Aries.

The Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius is this Tuesday August 20 at 9:45 PM EDT.  It will seek to bring head (Aquarius) and heart (Leo) together.   Remember that any decision you want to make now needs a marriage of heart and mind. If one or the other does not feel OK with what you are doing or want to do, then maybe it is not right or not time.   There also may be a feeling of climax or resolution of some issues begun a couple weeks ago.

Jupiter square Uranus is exact early on Wednesday August 21.  So those two days (Tuesday and Wednesday) will be the axis around which the shifts occur this week.  Late on Thursday the  Sun moves into Virgo, letting us know it is time to start thinking about “getting it together”, simplifying, fixing what needs to be fixed, and grounding our lives in working order.  This could put some grounding energy to all the changes swirling around.

Remember that no matter what actually is happening in your life, it is most important to actually allow your self to feel the energy shift, as these planetary events are mostly about energy and energy shifts.  It is from energy or chi or soul or spirit, or whatever word is right for you, that life is moved.

And the planetary alignments are reflective of these energy shifts.  And matter and the physical world are then influenced by these energy expressions.

And every time a planet touches off the ongoing Uranus/Pluto square now, it triggers energy moving to break open stuck blocks, to transform and heal old patterns and ways, to break down old programming, and to move us from dying chapters of our lives to new season of our lives.

As Jupiter squares Uranus now, it is touching off that Uranus/Pluto square of 2012-2016.  This Uranus/Pluto square is the first major interaction between Uranus and Pluto since they were conjunct in !965-1966, touching off the evolution and revolution of the ’60s and ’70s.

Now during these next few years of Uranus square Pluto, the next wave of transformation into a New Age of Aquarius is being touched off.    You can see it beginning all around you, even as our younger generations are getting more and more empowered to make an imprint on what is becoming their world.

The Baby Boomers, who were the young people back in the ’60s and ’70s, can now be mentors for this growing new generation as it seeks direction for handling enormous new energies of transformation. Remember however not to make them in your image.  Their journey will be different.

As we let go of the feelings of security and stability from the old paradigm, we can feel lost at times, just as we did back then in the ’60s and ’70s.    As back then, gender and sexual identity, orientation and desires are becoming more open issues. Relationship needs are more complicated.   And of course the technological world has much more power of our consciousness and lives now too, and is also greatly impacting sexual and relationship ways of being.

But now there is also an economic crisis that is far from being resolved, and many young people can no longer afford college and are concerned about their future careers.  And since 9-11 there is a security and surveillance system in place that threatens to compromise our privacy and human rights. In fact there is an “establishment” and “system” much more powerful than it was during the ’60s revolution.  America is now a Superpower and the head of an Empire.

Nevertheless, there is fear of “terrorism” and a fear of Islamic people that has been programmed into the average American and western world citizen.

The greater world’s interplay with the Islamic world is a most important issue in world events now.    As this three week August transformational journey began, there was a USA world alert to a potential attack from El Queda.  USA embassies around the world were closed.

Also at that time the USA started up talks again between the Palestinians and Israelis, which is an issue that is most important in the Arab and Islamic worlds.

And also quite importantly the military in Egypt has thrown out the democratically elected Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi, and since then hundreds of people have been killed in the streets of Cairo and other cities in Egypt, mostly Muslim Brotherhood supporters.   At the same time there is now much evidence that President Obama will follow up on his recent commitment to get more involved militarily in Syria.

When the Middle East breaks open like Pandora’s box, likely some time between now and spring 2014; and as the stock market has a huge downturn during that same time period, the world will be thrown head first into a crisis of transformation.

Many of the healing crises we are currently going through this year, the challenges in consciousness, the life shifts, the disillusions, the awakenings, the breakdowns and breakthroughs; they are in large part in preparation for what is coming our way.

The Age of Aquarius is coursing through our collective veins of consciousness, clearing the way of programming, toxins and blocks from an old age and paradigm.  Its beams of light will get stronger and stronger as we move through the transition between ages.  You will see and feel more and more connections, know more love, be open to more truth.   You will get your body, soul, and mind more healthy, connect more deeply with your authentic soul self and the Universe, and form an energetic circle with your brothers and sisters all over the world.

There is no stopping this new energy train from powering us to the Age of Aquarius.

See you next week,


There will be a new Youtube video prior to the Autumn Eclipse Season 2013. Will let you know soon when it will happen.

There is an old YOUTUBE video Astrology Forecast for Spring Eclipse Season. Check it out if you feel so moved.

Spring Teasing and Astrology Forecast March 10-16

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 9, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

This coming week, we begin slightly to shift out of the holding pattern we have been in lately.   The following week after that we will truly begin to open up and feel the hope that naturally springs from the feeling of a “new day”.

There is a new moon this coming week, though we stay in Mercury Retrograde and rest in Winter slumber for a short while more.  Tonight Saturday March 9, overnight we turn our clocks ahead into Daylight Savings Time here in the United States.

And on Monday March 11 at 3:51 PM there is a New Moon in Pisces.   And early on Tuesday March 12, forceful Mars moves into its natural sign of Aries, revving up our action oriented engines, and starting sparks of initiation.

And also on March 12 you may be able to see the first of two comets passing our way.  Look at the slight crescent moon and nearby you might view Comet PanStaars, at its closest to the Sun around then.  Later this year a more prominent comet will seen, in late November: Comet ISON.

These shifts this week will give us a teasing light of flame as we move toward our rapidly approaching, “stormy” Spring Eclipse Season 2013.

The New Moon in Pisces this week, after we turn our clocks ahead to give us more light at the end of the day, will begin to stir up our souls for the hope of spring.

But remember that Mercury will still be retrograde, and Winter will not be quite over yet.   And though we are looking at a New Moon, which brings a push to new beginnings; this New Moon is in watery, slo-mo Pisces.    So it will still be time to look at the past to say goodbye, to release old memories and grieve a time gone by.

It will still be time to wade through the pools of our winter of discontent, and in turn filter out fantasy from reality as we get ready for a new chapter of our life.

Soon intensity will increase dramatically, however this coming week is merely a teasing transition from winter’s sensitive feelings to spring’s fires of new life.

In the greater world, the prevailing and decaying culture is showing us signs of coming upheaval.    The stock market is manic and out of touch will true economic reality; and thus perhaps this spring, but certainly this autumn there will be a great fall of the market.

And North Korea and Iran, the countries President Bush declared were part of an axis of evil, are now bringing self fulfilling prophecy and threatening our safety here in America and the western world.

It is likely events will bring the USA into new combat this spring or summer, likely with North Korea, Iran and/or Syria.  Jupiter and Mars during the coming Eclipse Season will be conjunct the USA natal Mars in Gemini, so major conflict is very likely. Uranus square Pluto will be exact this Spring 2013 also.

In your personal life, it is time to begin to think of awaking from Winter Slumber, and envisioning your activity and potential changes in 2013.

The opportunities now to make positive change in your life are great this year.  But it will not happen if you cling to the familiar old stories that may help you feel safe, but keep you locked up and frozen in old familiar  time.

If you keep your mind and heart open, you will likely find doors opening into chapters of your life.  These openings will bring you into new places in your heart and mind.   Your authentic Soul Self is waiting for you to break though old societal and family programming that has kept that Soul Self chained by  ego’s needs for control.

You are not who you have been conditioned to believe who you are. Families mold people into roles that keep old dysfunctional dramas in existence.

When you look in the mirror of their eyes, you stay who you are expected to be.  Your authentic Self will thus stay in an ego shell, limited and locked up.  Your health will suffer, mentally and physically.     These family roles are in league with societal expectations.  Roles, and especially gender expectations, are handed down generation to generation, with little wiggle room for true individuality.

Meditation, and other healing, metaphysical and spiritual practices will help you to reach and actualize this Soul Self.  As you do, and as you become committed to its actualization, layers of old programmed skin will fall off.

There may be great pain in shedding these layers of skin, but much feeling of liberation, hope and joy accompany these labor pains.

And now, as we accelerate the speed of our voyage into an Aquarian Age, beams of new consciousness light seek to penetrate our layers of protection of our Authentic Self.

It will be more and more stressful to keep your Soul locked down.    Like our prevailing culture, if you stay stuck in old ways, you will be more and more ruled by fear, and needs to control.  You will separate your self from your fellow human being as well as your Soul Self.

The bubble you create keeps you in your ego-mind, and in “unconscious’ habits and obsessions.

This coming Eclipse Season 2013, with an unusual 3 eclipses instead of 2, and another exact Uranus square Pluto, brings great intensity that will rock our world and destabilize the status quo.

Allow your Self to open to the sunshine of new consciousness, to the fresh air of magic, meaning, synchronicity, and connection to deeper self, the Universe and your fellow human being.   You will then know that all the dots of the Universe are connected in sacred unity, waiting for us to realize.
