The Force of Change Now and Astrology Forecast March 29- April 4

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on March 28, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week energies for action  increase substantially, but early in the week you may face a temporary stop sign for those energies.

Nothing however will slow down or mute powerful Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn later this week, a force that will explode into our consciousness and lives this week. They are exactly conjunct on April 4, the date of the Webinar I will be presenting on 4/4/4.

Jupiter is the god on the highest, on Mount Olympus, where the gods and goddesses gathered together.  He was considered the ultimate god, energetically rising and expanding, inspiring and uplifting

Pluto is god of the underworld, delving beneath the Earth for deeper truths, hidden agendas, lost souls, deeper insight, death and rebirth in the process of transformation

Pluto and Jupiter have a most difficult relationship with one another as they operate at cross purposes. Pluto goes far down and Jupiter goes far up.

Together they are explosive, and as such can change the direction or trajectory of whatever has been previously decided or committed to. They can also open up and move most anything that has been previously stuck or trapped or repressed.

We are still in the waxing half of the lunar cycle this week, a cycle that began at the Aries New Moon on March 24.

Aries New Moons almost always suggest (or demand) that we shake off the cobwebs of Winter in a very assertive manner.

Last Winter was quite dark and inhospitable.   The coronavirus scare began and soon after the stock market took many dives into fear and panic.

Saturn conjunct Pluto, and 2 powerful eclipses near the beginning of Winter, set the stage for the surreal world we were about to enter.

And now one season later,  that same virus and same struggling stock market and economy have built up much momentum for debilitating fear and panic within the crowd of our programmed humanity.

Yes we are in a large crisis, all of us together.  We truly are ONE large human family, now more evidently than ever, connected by soul, heart, mind and body.

And it is the body of our family being severely threatened: Our actual individual bodies threatened by a deadly virus; and the material security of our finances.

And of course our souls, spirits, and minds have been greatly threatened as a result.

We must now know and accept that what is happening is happening for meaningful reasons. This is not random “bad luck” or punishment for our sins, though there may be some human collective karma thrown into the “reasons”.  And I believe this is not “doom and gloom end of the world”.

We are in the transition between an Age of Pisces and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius.

And since we are only about 9 months away from a “turning of the corner” into the Age of Aquarius (as signified by the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0+ degrees of AQUARIUS on Winter Solstice this year). And that event is less than two months after a most important Presidential Election.

And by a not just mere coincidence, Mercury changes directions back to Direct on Election Day.  Meaningfully, that is what Mercury was doing on the day of the Presidential Election in November 2000, when Bush and Gore ran against one another.  To stations went back and forth all night from Gore winning or Bush winning.

We have so much to discuss at the Webinar next Saturday the 4th of April. Since 2020 reduces to a 4, our webinar is on 4/4/4. 

If you want to attend write me at soulus@aol.com.  Cost is $20. There is a series of Webinars (all on Zoom) on the first Saturday of the next 3 months- 4 in all. All 4 together costs $70. If you cannot attend you can purchase the recording.

This week begins in the waxing half of the Aries lunar cycle, which is strengthened by the 2nd quarter beginning on April 1. 

Prior to that 2nd quarter beginning, Mars goes into Aquarius on March 30, bringing the force of revolution into a New Age.

But Mars is presented with a strong STOP sign the next day on the 31st of March, as Saturn conjuncts that same Mars. That Stop sign is for pause, that pause to make commitment to embody are higher ideals.

We are forming deep within our Collective Souls a joining together that is more powerful than all the armies and banks in the world.

That Collective is inhabited by a Soul Force for the Age of Aquarius.  Love and Truth guide us,  fear is only let in for short spurts of time. Panic must be nipped in the bud, before it becomes a black hole of despair.

Venus goes into Gemini this week on April 3. It will stay in Gemini for a long time as it goes Retrograde there on May 13.

Mars this year goes Retrograde also, in Aries on September 9.  Mars, god of war, stays in Aries until January 2021. Mars loves to be in Aries, its sign of purest expression.  War involving Israel is likely then.

These two planets, Mars and Venus, represent respectively Male and Female.  This year our relationships are ready to transform in order to create a unity that cannot be destroyed as long as Love and Truth guide the way. Our Yin and Yang energies need to be more true to their essence. And from that incorporation of Truth for what they each represent and embody, comes a strong desire to be balanced with one another, to be unified like the Yin/Yang symbol.

This virus and stock market will keep us in crisis mode until our collective souls and minds recognize and integrate the opportunities for Aquarian Age evolution and revolution for our human family.

We are now still fighting the culture wars here in the USA and our political parties are a large part of it.  How bad do  things need to get before we recognize our Soul connections and begin assisting one another? I already have been seeing signs of this in our world, people helping people regardless of religion, sexual orientation, privilege, etc.

Back in the Day our not too distant ancestors in America faced a Great Depression sandwiched between 2 World Wars.  It made our country more unified and many began to realize all Americans are part of the same American Family.

Now the Unity needs have expanded.  We need the whole globe of people coming together, knowing we are parts of the same Family regardless of country, religion, political connection or sexual orientation.

This Virus is showing us how small this world really is now, as we are so interdependent with one another.

And stock markets have been falling all over the world, affecting the sense of security and well being for all of us.  We in the USA and Western Civilization have known more prosperity and comfort than most of the world.

In a world of Equals and of Diversity within Unity, we in the west will learn we are not in essence Superior to than any other culture or country.   We need to come back to our cherished values, and demote our desires for wealth and Fame.  We are being given the opportunity to rearrange our priorities now.

Soul values have been largely ignored over the years as power and wealth have been put on a value pedestal.

Now the higher values are ready to stream more and more into our Consciousness and Lives. And the Jupiter conjunct Pluto aspect of April 4 will be most helpful of that process of integrating higher with deeper values.

The Saturn/Pluto conjunction from last January is close by degree to the Jupiter/Pluto conjunction now.

Whatever began this last winter will meet up with an equal force this Spring. That force will tend to strengthen what was developed back in the Winter or it will provide energies to combat what was developed back then- or more likely both strengthen and combat.

This is a time of great Transformation. Do your best to stay focused on that reality.  Everything seems to be falling apart. In reality the falling apart is part of a large bigger picture.

The falling apart should help you to release what needs to go.  Do not hang on too tightly to anything, especially not the shore of the river of your old normal reality.

Till next week,

Leo

Changing of Ages and Astrology Forecast March 22-28

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on March 21, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Our lives have shifted so much since 2020 began.  Everything feels so surreal now.  Normal has vanished from our lives and will not be back.

We will instead begin to forge a new normal within the chaos of our old world falling apart, as we transition out of one age and into another, an age that began around the time of the birth of Christ.  That birth brought us a new calendar that was based on BC- (Before Christ), which shifted into AD, which is the time after the birth of Jesus Christ

January 16,  27 BC is generally accepted as the true beginning of the Roman Empire.  The Sun was at 24 degrees of Capricorn that day.  That 24 degrees of Capricorn is where Mars and Pluto will make exact conjunction this week, and 24 degrees Capricorn is where Jupiter and Pluto make conjunction on April 4.

Saturn conjunct Pluto on January 12 2020, sandwiched with two powerful eclipses, ushered in all the difficulties we are now facing. They made conjunction at around 23 degrees of Capricorn, just one degree from being at the aforementioned 24 degrees of Capricorn.

Add another layer because the USA Pluto in its 2nd house, which represents the Military Industrial Complex of the USA, is at 27 degrees Capricorn, close to the Sun at 24 degrees at the beginning of the Roman Empire.

Saturn, Jupiter, and Mars (temporarily) are making exact conjunctions with that USA Pluto of 27 degrees of Capricorn this year, and transiting Pluto conjuncts Pluto for a couple years after that.

That process is extremely intense and powerful this year,  as at the same time the Military/Industrial Complex, which is the USA and allies’ Empire, will continue to show signs of decay.

The decay is at the soul of the Complex, right now affecting our economic base. The eventual demise of the Complex and Empire will bring us back to America the Beautiful, away from the current dysfunctional and toxic Empire.

The Roman Empire eventually broke down and became Italy, the country which is quite arguably the one most deathly affected by the Corona virus.

In 27 BC Rome was working out its internal struggle between being an Empire or a democracy (or more aptly a republic).

Julius Caesar who was assassinated in 44 BC, just 17 years before this Roman Empire turning point in 27 BC.

The USA is now being run by a man who idolizes dictators (Putin and Xi), and who has shown a natural orientation for being one himself.

And remember that the USA was birthed in large part as a place to be run by the People, not Emperors or Dictators.  King George ruled England and wanted to keep ruling America.  And as a result we had the American Revolution of 1776.

And keep in mind that this Roman Empire began at the same approximate time as the birth of Christ and birth of the Age of Pisces!

And that is the Age we are now transitioning out of, so we can more fully be aligned in the Age of Aquarius!

And all the darkness we have been experiencing this year, with the fall of the stock market and chaos of the Corona virus, is all part of the bigger picture of a death of an old Age and birth of a New Age.

And there is another connection  to what I am saying: it is called the Corona Virus.  One definition of Corona is crown.

And 44 BC, when Caesar was assassinated, is considered the turning point for leaving the Republic behind and becoming an Empire run by an Emperor.

And now, as we leave behind the Pisces Age, which birthed Empires, began (with the Roman Empire); we will leave behind the modern version of an Emperor wannabe ruling the last Empire on Earth. Let us hope, however, that assassination is not part of this transition between Ages.

As this week begins, Saturn moves out of Capricorn and into Aquarius.  It will stay in Aquarius and wait for Jupiter to join him in December 2020 at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, which symbolizes the turning of a corner into the Age of Aquarius.

Saturn actually enters Aquarius late on the 21st of March.  It will go back into Capricorn for a few months, then stay in Aquarius for over 2 years.

Then on Monday the 23rd Mars makes conjunction with Pluto at that same 24 degrees of Capricorn.   This meeting will be powerful, and will be followed closely by the New Moon in Aries on March 24.

That combination of Mars conjunct Pluto and New Moon in Aries brings energies of power and force and explosiveness.  Explosive world events are more likely than usual.

And in personal lives it is best to watch one’s anger or potential rage, as they can turn into mean or ruthless expressions.

Yet for most it is not so lethal, but more an opportunity to empower oneself, to let others know you are not a doormat to be walked on anymore.

Saying No can be empowering, stating one’s needs can be also empowering.  It is time now for people to stand up for what they believe in and for who they are.

New Moon in Aries signifies the time when Spring begins to be felt energetically.  Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, and pushes us forward into action.

I realize many of us cannot take much action with quarantines and the like.  but action can be taken over the net or in one’s mind or promises to self and others to said action.

The dark events of the winter happened in the energetic “Yin”zone we told you we would be captured within until the New Moon in Aries.

And this week is the turning point, as we are more ready to take charge and make things happen. Feelings of being a victim will be more difficult to hold onto.

Aries also is about self respect and being true to self.  Some may feel it is selfish, but in truth it is more about taking care of oneself and being more independent.

Aries can also be rather straight forward and direct, even at times brutally honest.

Use this energy shift to get out of feelings of being depressed. This gets us up to fight, to survive. Your personal will wants to be activated now. You have the ability to take the “bull by the horns” and make your life better, no matter what is thrown at you.

Yes the economy is suffering and Corona virus is looking over our shoulders, but we can use positive visualization, for instance, to exert our will now, to make our lives better.

Please join me at a webinar I will be presenting on April 4 at 10:30 AM PDT.  I will be talking about our lives now, as seen through the eyes of Astrology.  We will also discuss charts of countries, world leaders, stock market, etc.  How long will this crisis all last?What’s next? How is this all connected to the Age of Aquarius? What is happening and needs to happen in our consciousness, our beliefs, to be more aligned with where we are moving toward? What needs to change in our lives?  How will the world be altered? $20 fee. There will be 3 more in the series- $20 each or $70 for all 4.

And the Winner Is?And Astrology Forecast February 2-8

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 2, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Eclipse Season Winter 2020 can still be seen in our rear-view mirrors.  

There is more to process through, and hopefully each of us finds the time to do so, with professional support, or close friends, or time for being alone with yourself to sort through and heal from.

The last couple of months brought up so much from deep within our minds, souls, spirits, and bodies.

They have been “brought back up” into our awareness,  because we need more clarity,  direction, insight, and release of old patterns that do not serve us or our evolution into the Age of Aquarius.

Our collective human lives are really in crisis now, as we get more and more certain that our old paradigm is failing us, as we struggle to find our way forward.

Many struggle to be present, or even to just wanting to be present.  Our phones, computers and other tech escapes have us living more and more in a virtual world bubble.

Many more young members of society awaken each morning as adults now.  And as they look out at the world we live in, they are scared to death.

Mass murders at schools, workplaces, restaurants, night clubs and other frequented places, gives many people pause when thinking about going outside their homes for any reason.

Your work needs and your friendship needs can more and more often be “satisfied” from home or on a computer.

Sex lives are also more and more virtual, with internet porn, dating site hookups,  and now human-like sex robots.

We do not even need to go out for groceries or restaurant food, which can be delivered to our door, along with everything else you want and need taken care of by Amazon.

And look at the world “out there”. Our American culture is split, as it once was at the Civil War.

Our economy is for show, not nearly as good as it is being sold to us.

And during this latest Eclipse Season, we were brought to the brink of war with Iran ( which could have triggered  a World War); The Coronavirus outbreak of illness and death started in China; the almost war with Iran that could have led to World War III; and economy and stock market on the brink of severe downturn; and a presidential impeachment process that is about power and politics more than desires for truth, justice, fairness, and community.

Of course our world is at a crisis point at a Crossroads based on bringing back our values that are connected to “our better angels” as Abraham Lincoln alerted us to.  OR NOT making those “better angel” values our highest priority.  The impeachment process showed us, when a vote came for calling witnesses and documents, how winning politically is more important than our cherished values and ideals.

We are in deep trouble, and can no longer operate from a default pattern of energies, habits, and opinions that keep us stuck in the old world, paradigm and Age that do not work for us, or help provide us with Truth, Love and care for one another and our community.

This week, as we are in the beginning of the Lunar Cycle begun at the New Moon in Aquarius on the 24th,  begin our week at Imbolc on the 2nd of February.

Imbolc has been considered a sacred day for hundreds of years, especially by those who find spiritual Oneness in Nature.

Imbolc, called Groundhog Day in our current pop culture, is the half way marker between Winter and Spring. It was considered as a Time of Initiation.

And Groundhog Day is seeing shadows that tell people if Spring is coming early in any given year.

Mercury leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces on Monday February 3, shifting our mind into more imaginative and creative thinking and communicating.

Staunch adherents of “cause and effect” logic find Mercury in Pisces quite challenging, as it is into finding connections and right brain unity more than the bottom line of left brain thinking.

This week tops off with Venus entering battler Aries on Friday the 7th.

This is Venus’ best example of being empowered, self assertive, and true to Self.

Venus in Aries is independent and self confident.  Closest Goddess to this Venus placement in Aries is Athena.

And to top off this week, we have a Full Moon in Leo on the 9th at 2:33 AM EST.

The Sun is in Aquarius opposes the Moon in Leo, which makes the Full Moon.

So Aquarius’ mind is quite different than Leo’s heart.  At this Full Moon you may get a realization that trusting mind more than heart is not the right way to believe and lead one’s life.

Leo ideally is the open heart of a 3 year old whose heart is ready to take on all experiences.  And she also appreciates all the attention she may be getting.

Aquarius knows the value of a clear mind that also possesses higher values. It operates from a web of thought patterns, similar to the Internet.

I did much study this week to be able to find who the next USA president will be.

I felt pretty sure when I predicted Obama would be the Democrat nominee and McCain the Republican nominee in 2008, then Obama the winner. I made prediction around this time of year I believe. Since I was able to predict so early in the process, using my own astro formulas, I believe those 2 were destined to win.

Then in 2016 I predicted early that Trump would be the nominee and eventual winner

This time it is not so easy, as 3 or 4 people do well in the formula.

Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and in a lesser way Bloomberg and Warren all meet the formula criteria. So does Trump fit the formula.

But Elizabeth Warren is also so connected to the Eclipses this year in June and November and most of all she is connected to the Jupiter conjunct Saturn aspect in December that is a symbol of the New Age of Aquarius beginning.   Her natal Jupiter is at 0 degrees 14 minutes of Aquarius.  The Jupiter/Saturn conjunction is exactly at 0 degrees 14 minutes of Aquarius

I predict Elizabeth Warren will win,  But I do so with less confidence than in previous years.

In Addition to all this potential confusion, the Universe is throwing a big curve ball on Election Day this year because it has the same crazy planetary aspect it had on Election Day November 7, 2000.

Mercury that night in 2000 was shifting from Retrograde to Direct,  and news anchors all kept going back and forth predicting Bush won, then Gore, then Bush, etc.

We did not know the winner until weeks later when the Supreme Court got involved. Bush won.

Very strangely, and perhaps most importantly, this Election Day on November 3 has the same planetary alignment as it did on Election Day in November 2000. Mercury goes from Retrograde to Direct that day.

Maybe no one will be the clear winner that night. Maybe Trump will not accept the apparent win by Biden or Bernie or Warren.  Very Good chance one of those 2 alternatives or one we cannot see yet will play out.  To be continued.

Till next week,

Leo

Year 2020 and Astrology Forecast December 29-January 4.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 29, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We enter a New Year 2020 this week, and it will be one alive and intense year ahead (Podcast Forecast coming in early January).

This week of transition between years 2019 and 2020 begins shortly after the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn from December 25/26.

That eclipsed new moon began a lunar cycle that includes a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer on January 10, the same day liberating Uranus changes directions from Retrograde to Direct.

Then 2 days later on the 12th, the important and powerful Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn.

This week now, we should be able to experience more of the reality and meaning of this Eclipse Season.

The holidays have to some extent distracted us from the energies and reality of this Eclipse Season.

If paying attention , however, we experience the partisan battle between Democrats and Republicans that will likely take Trump off the hook of being found guilty by the Republican run Senate. The Senate tries Trump and then votes for his guilty or innocent verdict. No matter what he gains infamy in American history.

This country has descended into a government that has lost the pulse of the American people, and in so doing gives more and more power to corporations and special interests that pay handsomely to the Senators and Congressional representatives.

The idealistic values set down in the American Constitution and Bill of Rights are being more and more drowned under by overly materialistic values and distorted needs for ultimate security above all else.

The lofty American values of equality for all, freedom of speech, and care for those who struggle have been brought down many notches and into the underworld’s value system.

This year 2020 presents a major turning point in regards to those values. The current administration pushes the envelope toward more power for the executive branch of government, meaning toward King Donald.

Yet 2020 gives the opportunity, through impeachment and elections, to reject those values and reject giving more power to the “kings and queens”.

1776 was to be the beginning of the end of rule by royalty or dictator, and instead give more power to the people.

So now we have the opportunity, through transformation of consciousness, to evolve into the people envisioned by the early leaders of the country.

The month of January 2020, as the first month of the year, sets the stage and creates the foundation for this important year ahead.

The Saturn/Pluto conjunction, which happens to be a close companion to the Cancer Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, is set to begin the process of destruction of soul dead elements of our world and its institutions.

Stock Market correction is likely this season, as the chart for the beginning of the Stock Market in America is being harshly triggered by the Saturn/Pluto conjunction and Lunar Eclipse this month. That chart is from May 17, 1792 in New York.

The Trump administration will do everything in its power to keep the market and economy looking prosperous, as a failure of the economy means automatic failure of the administration’s attempts to survive.

The trade war with China and breakdown of communication with North Korea will also come up to a major turning point this coming month.  North Korea is on the verge of creating more trouble. The state of Israel and showdown with Iran will likely also draw much attention this coming month.

In our personal lives this Eclipse Season, we can expect events that bring powerful messages of needs to release anything from the last chapter of our lives that keep screaming to be kept alive.

Saturn/Pluto can be ruthless, and so letting go is essential.  The New Chapter may have already showed you its promise, but no matter what- make sure to let go of what used to be. Your anger and/or guilt keep the old alive, even if you believe you let it all go.

This week on New Year’s Eve day of the 31st, the Moon is in Pisces much of the day.

However at 11 PM EST and 8 PM PST, the Moon goes into Aries. In Europe the New Year comes in with the Moon in Pisces.  In Africa and Asia, the Moon will be in Pisces at the yearly turning point.

But in America there will be a good connection with what is happening overall: The Pisces Moon is grieving and letting go; the Aries Moon is pushing forward and embracing the new.

On January 2nd,  Mercury in Capricorn makes exact conjunction with Jupiter in Capricorn, affording us the opportunity to have real and practical ideas for manifesting our dreams and making our lives work better.

On January 3, Mars leaves deeply serious and sometimes brooding Scorpio for more glory seeking Sagittarius.  What has been a “kept secret” Scorpio desire or emotion is released into the free spirit of Sagittarius.

Mars stays in Sagittarius until February 16. Use the Mars fiery placement now to take the leap of faith, to “take the ride” of your destiny, to go on the adventure, to know all is happening for a reason.

All the Capricorn energies now can help make some people feel trapped or confined or depressed.

But if you do allow yourself to open up and freely follow spirit now, you can use the Capricorn influence to stay grounded, to make real, to manifest in form.  This combo is great for recognizing the natural relationship that can be found between spirit and form.

That is our human experience. Free spirits and souls making home in a body in order to fulfill a function or purpose in our Earthly Human Community in this lifetime.

Issues and energies intensify this week, as we get closer to the important planetary configurations later this month.

Till next week,

Leo

Full Moon Begins Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast December 8-14

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 7, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The waxing moon reaches climax this week as it becomes a Full Moon in Gemini at 12:12 AM on December 12.

And unofficially, Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 is energizing and alive.

That Eclipse Season will be important as a major turning point for our world and personal lives.

There is no more straddling the fence of indecision; no more trying to be in two different worlds at the same time. It is time to choose or at least know one has to choose.

This Eclipse Season will contain many highlights: 2 eclipses; Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn; and Uranus shifting to Direct- out of Retrograde motion.

In the outer world we see a stock market in a big bubble ready to burst this winter; North Korea and China more intent on challenging the USA; Israel and Iran doing serious macho strutting with one another; and a USA impeachment process that is not headed for a peaceful solution.

In January, Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn at 22+ degrees of Capricorn will be closely opposing Trump’s natal Venus/Saturn conjunction in Cancer. His sense of stability and control will be seriously threatened. 

His natal Vertex, often a sign of “fated happenings” is at 22+ degrees of Capricorn, exactly conjunct the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12. This is a very difficult aspect for him.

This Saturn/Pluto conjunction is made even more potent as it is closely held inside the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon of Capricorn/Cancer at 20+ degrees of Capricorn on January 10.

Saturn and Pluto together are pretty serious. One (Saturn) is planet of time and gravity, while the other (Pluto) is the Guardian of the Underworld.  Together they are ruthless in destroying anything that is hanging around past its natural time of life.

This is a perfect time to eliminate the old ego stories that keep you stuck.  In some cases, it will be obvious that the old patterns need to go.  Remember that doing the same thing over and over again, looking for changes that will never come, is insanity.

And now Saturn/Pluto can help you to stop looking in the same places anymore for answers.  When you are committed to stop, new doors and windows will open, bringing in the fresh air of a new season for our lives.

I know it can feel daunting to enter new lands of possibility, and that the demon we know can be more appealing and less scary than strange situations we have never known.

But once in these new vistas of life, we let go into renewal and greater vitality.

And this week, as we begin to feel the breezes of the Eclipse Season that has its first eclipse on December 25/26, we are making ourselves be present and aware.

That consciousness will allow us to see and feel all the signs and symbols we need now, to keep us aligned and on track.

This current week begins in a bit of a misty fog in consciousness, as both the Sun and Venus make contact with Neptune on Sunday the 8th.

Wrestling with details and analytic mental processes is off the mark and will only bring confusion.  Best to surrender agenda with Neptune, just let go and surrender.

Mercury moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius on Monday the 9th, raising our mental vibration, being more open to inspiration and high-mindedness. It stays in Sagittarius until December 28.

Around the 9th, it is time to be in the aura of the approaching Full Moon in Gemini.  Before that exact full moon on the 12th, Venus makes exact conjunction with Saturn on the 11th.

Saturn conjunct Venus puts limits on the open heart’s natural give and take, and instead brings us more into “quid pro quo” negotiations to get you what you each want from each other.

The exact actual Full Moon in Gemini is on Thursday December 12 at 12:12 AM EST. (See all  the 12’s ?): 12/12 at 12:12 AM.   Twelve is a sacred number showing itself in the number of signs and houses of the zodiac and also the number of apostles of Jesus Christ.  It is considered more a sacred “male” number, while 13 is considered more a sacred female number.

For this new moon, we have the Sun in Sagittarius and the Moon directly opposed in Gemini at 19+ degrees.

This is usually a very animated time period, as people get more into communication. Conversations can be quite lively. Gemini provides the mental information and possibilities, while Sagittarius provides the conclusions, opinions and meaning.  Gemini is mostly left brain mental processing calculating and thinking, while Sagittarius is mostly intuitive “whole-making”.

With this Full Moon in Gemini, Neptune in Pisces is involved as it squares both the Sun and Moon.

Neptune may bring more confusion to the conversations at times, and at other times it will bring a deeper, more insightful and psychic approach to any issues.

Let the conversation take you and all will be fine.  Sometimes it is not the bottom line answers that matter the most. It is the connections between people that is most important.

Chiron goes Direct in Aries later on the 12th, building a bridge between your higher Self and your ego.

Then on Friday the 13th (one of my most favorite days), Mars in Scorpio trines Neptune while Venus conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn.

Mars in Scorpio trine Neptune keeps our actions connected to our soul, so that our inner values keep our desires in bounds.

Venus conjunct Pluto in Capricorn brings more insight and deeper connection to our relationships.  Superficial has little chance of getting our attention now, instead we become more aware of our needs for depth and closeness with others.

My partner Deborah and I leave our home for the last 16 years, as we travel to our new home in Sedona on December 16.

Some of the most soulful, thoughtful, kind and conscientious people live in Maine and New England.  They will always remain deeply in my heart.

Till next week,

Leo

What Are We Waiting For and Astrology Forecast August 25-31

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on August 24, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The greatest  part of this coming week is a continuation of the previous week.  The Moon is still moving down through its darkening, waning half of the lunar cycle.

The Sun is still in a fix-it, mend-it, heal-it, perfect-it, maintain-it, clean it up, make it more orderly Virgo energetic. Venus and Mars have joined the Sun in Virgo, providing even more energy for developing physical purity and critical discernment.

That discernment can feel quite judgmental at times, and judging oneself can be especially hurtful.

A positive use of this Virgo energy is to help you to see the trees in the forest, and each branch and leaf of those trees.  Virgo can gently help make everything be more real; can tell you who or what may not be good for you; and can bum-out any overly romanticized illusion you may have conjured up.

And yes Virgo can be very good at bringing things “down to Earth”, more simple and ordered. It is the most gentle and flexible of the 3 Earth signs.

The 4th quarter of the lunar cycle ends at the New Moon in Virgo on Friday August 30 at 6:37 AM EDT.   It becomes a New Moon because the Moon catches up with the Sun at the same degree of the same sign. In this case it is almost 7 degrees of Virgo.

The slow come-down of the 4th quarter Moon shifts into a let’s get going and get things done New Moon in Virgo.

During the darkening skies, as the Moon finishes the last quarter of its cycle, it is a great time for meditation, intentions, prayers, and positive visualization.

Then when the first sliver of light shows a day or so after the actual time of the New Moon, the new beginnings come alive. Saturday night of August 31 is when that light should appear.

I know you see the grand scale of transformation and change that is brewing in our country and world. I have mentioned many times how the Military/Industrial Complex of the Empire is beginning to transform.

This takes place in the economy and the military/police segments of American society.

The economy showed big signs of trouble this last week with a very aggressive trade war with China breaking open. There is little doubt what we face ahead in the stock market and economy.

And the USA is making enemy of so many peoples. We are isolating from the rest of the world with our current focus on Nationalism. This is what happened just before World War II.  Germany, Japan, Italy and others became much more nationalistic.

On Wednesday August 28 Mars in Virgo makes trine with Uranus in Taurus. This energy should shake things up, but not out of control.  Stuck energies or patterns get some assistance in breaking away.

The next day on August 29, the Sun also trines Uranus, continuing the theme of breaking open what has been stuck or complacent.  And on that same day Mercury leaves Leo and enters Virgo, building up even more Team Virgo.

Late that night, on its way to a new moon the next day, the Moon also enters Virgo.

We are getting used to this new reality we are in.  But more importantly it has been feeling for some time now that we are waiting for something, and that we cannot make decisions or find direction until it happens.

Most of us know by now that the Trump world is real, not an illusion or bad dream.

Virgo will help us now to face up to what is really happening and figure out how to make things better.

Most of the really important work now is in our consciousness.  The parts of our consciousness that are a result of programming received by the culture and family, needs to be released.

Thinking for oneself is essential in the Age of Aquarius.  Diversity within Unity is a pillar concept of the new world. And diversity requires individualism.  And the sign Aquarius is quite arguably the most individualized of all.

Aquarius needs to know and accept that it is different, Often times that may get one to feel they are weird and will never fit in.

And that is the process of Aquarius:  honoring the differences while looking to join with others in unity.

Thinking for oneself often begins by speaking up to parents or other authority figures. There is a rebellion of sorts and a feeling of being different and not needing to be or think what others want you to think or be. The teen years are a usual time for getting more independent and feeling more separate from family and culture.

But at the same time teens are looking for a group or clique or club or team that one feels “at home” in.

And now many people feel lost.  Their old allegiances no longer work for them. They do not know where or how they fit in anymore.

I have been seeing so many families breaking apart over the current political and cultural battles.

Some people cannot understand anyone being for Trump, and are amazed when some family member has that allegiance.

Facebook battles have also intensified, with some really nasty comments made to one another.

People in each camp feel so distant from each other in their beliefs.

I have read in Civil War books how one brother fought with the North while another brother fought with the Confederacy.

It seems almost surreal how many opinions are similar to back then.

The red states, which are mainly in the South, fall in line for Trump and his values and policies.  The blue states, mainly up north and on the coasts, have values more aligned with Obama’s values and policies.

Many of those  red state people really hated Obama, and Trump fed their anger with his claims that Obama was not born in the USA and instead was a Muslim wanting to bring down the country.

And now blue state people hate Trump and want him gone as quickly as possible.

It is Civil War again. Remember that the North won the war, ended slavery and plantations, and tried to bring the country back together again.

But surprising to some, they never did truly come back together again.

Wholeness and connectedness is important for an individual, country, community, family, etc.

A breaking apart, however, is part of the process of transformation.  The old formation is not working anymore, is not healthy or growing and evolving.  This happens with relationships too.

Each member of the relationship is growing in a different direction from the other member. They then either go their separate ways, or else figure out how to come back together from their new states of being. They build a new Wholeness and connectedness, one that has evolved into a better and healthier way of being.

Our country and world are experiencing such a transformation.

And since this is about a changing of Ages, such a big cycle of transformation, after over two thousand years of being in the Age of Pisces; we are collectively changing at the very core of our beings in order to be aligned with this Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Simplicity, Humility, and Astrology Forecast for August 18-24.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week the planets combine in relatively mild ways.

In contrast, summer 2019 has been really intense, violent, with strong breezes of chaos swirling in.

For those not privy to the bigger picture, events in the world would strongly suggest coming attractions of Doom and Gloom.

For many the world events during summer 2019 have brought with them such feelings of Doom and Gloom: the Trump presidency and its seemingly destined trip through an impeachment investigation; serious stock market and economy downward plunges promising a big recession; rhetoric for war between India/Pakistan, Iran/USA, China/USA, and Russia/USA; many mass killings in the USA; culture war between the right and left looking like a potential Civil War on the way. In Portland Oregon today is a big confrontation between far right and far left groups.  Israel is on the verge of major escalation with Palestine now.

And though Trump will not admit it, the danger of conflict between North Korea and the USA has grown this summer with NK blasting out many new rocket launches.

And more than anything else, the world’s leaders show us more and more how they are immature, self serving, unfair, corrupt; and feeling they are privileged and entitled.

The Epstein story, which ended his life this past week, has shown us that too many celebrities, wealthy people, and influential people in our world are without true moral fiber or concern for the most innocent of our human family, the children.

How can one, at this time, justify keeping the old paradigm and age alive?

It is time, as the heavens show us, to let go of that old age and paradigm in our minds, hearts, and consciousness.

We, as a collective, are in decay, as was Rome during the early portion of the now passing Age of Pisces.

As we decay, we need to come back to the lofty the ideals of “we the people”, freedom of the individual, “all people are created equal”, self determination for peoples; and a belief in a Diversity that can be naturally formed into a family of Unity for all.

Love and Truth are there always for us to embrace and live by. if we so choose and commit to.

The old programming from the decaying old age, shows us we live in a dog-eat-dog world that forces us to care only for us and ours.

Sure that may look to be true at times, but it is only true because we have bought into it, made it our reality.

This passing summer has blasted into our faces the cold reality of what we have allowed, what we have enabled.

We must take responsibility for our world, and truly believe in “we the people”.

Yes the old economy is dying. Yes the old power structures in the world are crumbling. And yes we will know what to do as things unfold.

Let love reign in your heart; let truth, “the whole truth and nothing but the truth” be the leader in your consciousness.

World events will continue to pour into our world as we move beyond Summer Eclipse Season 2019.

We now know we must deal with reality and the serious issues we have been shown need to be resolved.

Impeachment, the Economy, the growing Civil War, guns and gun control, frequent mass murders, Climate Change, etc. will continue to wake us up to what we need to do to evolve into the Age of Aquarius.

This week, as previously stated, is relatively mild planetarily speaking.

Since the Full Moon in Aquarius last week, we are now in the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Leo New Moon on July 31, a new moon day that included Mercury going back Direct.

Last week we reached climax from that lunar cycle at the Full Moon in Aquarius.  Energies have been at their most intense surrounding the time of that Full Moon late on Thursday.

Now during the “comedown” we gather ourselves while doing some cleaning, clearing, and acceptance of current reality.

The move into Virgo energies will assist us in that process.

Mars leaves big hearted, often big ego Leo in order to enter the humble, efficient, reality facing energy of Virgo on Sunday August 18

Mars in Virgo can be very to the point direct, which can feel judgmental.  When healthy, it expresses in a way that is quite constructive and fostering of being a master in one’s endeavors  When more toxic and cynical, it expresses in ways that demean and humiliate others or more likely oneself.

You can use this Mars in Virgo to help you better discern what is wrong, what needs to be fixed, and how to fix it. What has happened this summer, and what can we do to make things better.

Mars in Virgo takes action to work and get things done.  Negative Mars in Virgo is obsessive and won’t let anxiety go.

Venus enters Virgo on the 21st. Venus in Virgo attracts people and situations in a real and grounded manner.   It prefers simplicity and being of service.  It is humble, gentle, and sometimes self effacing.

Then on August 23 the Sun begins its annual journey through Virgo.  That means it is time to go back to school; get more serious about work; fix what needs to be fixed; put everything in order; and simplify your life.

Venus conjuncts Mars in Virgo on Saturday the 24th, to show us that the yang and the yin, the male and the female, are in accordance with making a life simple, humble and gently real.

The 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle begins on Friday the 23rd as the Sun goes into Virgo that day.  That 4th quarter Moon is in Gemini, so the mind and nervous system may be in overdrive.

That means anxiety, mental obsession, and obsessiveness may seek an entry into your consciousness and mind for a few days. Keep a lid on it.  Great countermeasures are meditation and Nature and Sky watching.

The world is turning into crisis mode, but you can stay trusting the process and the big picture no matter what.  We are undoubtedly moving imminently into the Age of Aquarius.

The next few years are crisis years, years of intense transition from an old world to a new world.

Trump people wear MAGA hats expressing a desire to make America great again.

What is happening is an attempt by those people to make America what they believe it used to be.

You do know that cannot happen, don’t you?

The world of caucasian men running the world (not just this country) with the obedient women and children strapped to them in undying loyal support is in its death throes.

Minorities will be the majority in 20 years or so.  Women are getting empowered and nothing will stop that.  Globalism (bringing the world closer together) is inevitable.

Nationalism, any kind, will have a short life span.   Capitalism in its current unfair state is in the process of being transformed. More “socialism” will be added to the economic mix, no matter what.

Wars to further one’s aspirations for resources, wealth, and dominance will not last much longer.

The only concern I have is in not knowing how dark and ugly it will get during the transition.

Like a Mother giving birth, it is unknown what the process will be like on the way to the birth.  Some are easy births, some are unbelievably difficult.

We cannot control nature during its moments of crisis, like in birth and death.

But we can learn to have trust and faith in its wisdom and the higher meaning it always brings with it.

Yes, get ready for the ride to get much more bumpy soon.

But likely not this week so much.

Till next week,

Leo
