Stand Up and Astrology Forecast March 11-17

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 10, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Most of this week has us in the last quarter of the lunar cycle.   That is until The New Moon in Pisces on Saturday March 17 at 9:12 AM EDT.

Yes for most we will be on Daylight Savings Time starting this Sunday the 18th.  So in a way we get mixed messages.   We get more waking light minutes of the day, while still in the dark of Winter and while moving through the last and darkening phase of the Moon.

Spring will begin next week on March 20th, but then will be closely followed by Mercury going Retrograde on March 22.

There is so much swirling in the world around us now, and much of it brings uncertainty and has us moving into unknown territory.

Trump and Kim Jong Un of North Korea seem to have agreed on a personal meeting that will apparently concentrate on North Korea denuclearizing.  With Mercury going Retrograde soon, there will likely be many difficulties on the path toward a meeting and denuclearizing.

Between now and April 15 at the Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus, Mercury going back Direct, and a Yod Finger of God aspect with the USA natal Mars, much will be shifting and changeable. 

That Finger of God to the USA natal Mars will be a major turning point for the USA military, the police, and gun laws.

North Korea will either look like a major conflict is on the way, or instead it will be more certainly moving toward a peaceful solution.  The meeting between the two leaders is intended to be by May.

And the USA is moving its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem also in May.  This could be cause for much anger in the Arab and Muslim world.

So you can see how the April 15 portal opening that includes the Yod to the USA Mars, may play out with North Korea and Israel/Palestine.

Keep in mind also that Donald Trump was born on a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius.  That new moon has the Sun at 22+ degrees Gemini and his Moon at 21+ degrees of Sagittarius. The USA natal Mars is at 21+ degrees of Gemini, so you can see that what is coming will powerfully affect both the USA and Donald Trump.

A few days later on the 18th, Saturn goes Retrograde and its gravitational certainty will be circulating strongly in our collective energy field. The feeling of fate is in the air then

Make no mistake about it, mid April is a major turning point for this country and world.

That does not mean big events will necessarily explode on that day, but it does mean the portal will open for major events coming soon afterward.

The stock market and economy also deserve attention now and after the portal opens.

Trump’s presidency also is being threatened now, as the Russia investigation keeps picking up steam. After the 15th events will accelerate even more.

Remember however, that this coming week of March 11- 17 will bring energies that are moving inward and yin-ward, downward and for finishing up and processing.

So many personal lives are now up in the air, waiting for coming changes or uncertain what to do or what direction to take.

And certainty will be even more elusive as we get into Mercury Retrograde soon.

So do your best now to be patient and wait. Otherwise you will get anxious and stressed, or depressed.  Sometimes we must wait for clarity and direction to appear, as linear bottom line answers do not easily form.

Yet there is much to be gained in the process of waiting.  Our souls can be very enriched while processing our thoughts and feelings, while meeting up against our hopes and fears, while learning more about ourselves and others.

In the greater world, so much has shifted in the last couple of years or so.    The paradigm the world has known is obviously shifting, even with the difficulties and disappointments we are now experiencing.

We are also being reminded of what is wrong with our world. Why has fame and fortune become the American Dream?  Even in many so-called liberal circles, wealth and notoriety, pedigree and privilege are such a high priority to gain.

Where have the values of our “better angels” gone?  Where has our empathy and compassion gone? How about kindness, integrity, truth, honesty, dignity, respect, and heart centered love?

Why does it seem that money, power, and privilege have become culturally more important than those values?

What kind of world are we delivering to our kids and grandkids?

I heard one young man who survived the Florida school massacre say to Bill Maher on his show:  Paraphrased he passionately said that previous generations have f’d up our world and so this new generation will have to fix it.

And are we setting an example for them? How many have given up their more idealistic  values from their youth because the “real” world has disillusioned and disappointed them, so they decided to play the game instead of keeping the integrity of their better values? And in the process, what has happened to their souls.

For those who have done that, you can work to bring those values back now so we can fight with these kids for a New Paradigm for living with each other and or Earth home.

And following the rules is not the same as holding better values.  Inner values reflect what your mind, heart, and soul know to be true, known to be what brings us together with respect and love.

It is time for each of us to speak up for what we know is right, as has begun to happen with women who are speaking up like never  before, and like how young people are beginning to speak up about guns, etc.

Yet it is time for all of us to stand up and speak our truth.  Keeping quiet is the same as agreeing.  It enables the bad behavior and bad attitudes.

And in your personal life too, you do not need to keep quiet about what is bothering you.  You can stand up and speak your truth.

The condition of your life is your responsibility.  You are not a helpless victim.

The condition of our world is our collective responsibility. We are not victims.

We the people are the ones who will transform the world into the Age of Aquarius.

Don’t concentrate on those who seem to not be redeemable and who will not change.

Focus on attracting those who want to bring the Age of Aquarius values to the real world- as you do.

It is a waste of time trying to convince others to believe.

Be confident in what you believe, and be an example for others to follow. Who you are speaks volumes.

Till next week

What is Real? and Astrology Forecast February 18-24

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week we passed through the second and last eclipse of this Winter 2018 Eclipse Season, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.

This Eclipse Season will continue however till about March 8.  More shifting tides are coming.   More processing of what has been shifting will happen after that until around April 15.

Then events will accelerate after that and new movement forward will begin.

There is a New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus on April 15.  And Mercury that day will go direct after a previous 3 weeks of being Retrograde.

And in the greater world, specifically the USA, Jupiter and Pluto will exactly sextile one another while making a Yod or “finger of god” aspect with the USA Mars.

This will be an important turning point in our world, related to what has been shifting during this Eclipse Season.

In the greater world, a Stock Market mini crash has happened during this Eclipse Season. And though it rebounded last week, the downfall is not over.  The mania of the Bull market is seeking to be revitalized, and it will for awhile.  Then the market will descend even more than before.

Events in the Middle East have intensified also during this Eclipse Season as Russia, Iran and Syria are getting in a danger zone with Israel and the USA.  And the Palestinians are affected by these changes also.

The Korea issue has been calmed down during the Winter Olympics as North Korea and South Korea are more peaceful with one another.  But this issue is far from settled.

And right at the Solar Eclipse New Moon, 13 Russians were indicted for tampering with the USA political process.  This triggers the cultural battle in the USA, and is the beginning swat of what will become a Watergate kind of investigation into the Trump administration  and Trump himself.

Also almost right at the Solar Eclipse there were 2 strong earthquakes and a solar storm directed to the Earth, and more significantly another horrific mass killing at a high school in Florida.

We are not doing anything in this country to remedy this kind of slaughter which is happening more and more often.

And this triggers the culture war in the USA again, as those who want guns to be more regulated are fought by the culture of the NRA, which seeks no controls at all.

It is hard to believe that there are people who see no reason to limit availability of weapons, like AR-14s,  that can only be used to kill people, especially as so many innocent people are being murdered now.

So what has been triggered during this Eclipse Season is the stock market and economy; the USA culture wars; the Middle East; and the Koreas.

All of these issues will break open even more soon, especially after April 15.

And in our personal lives and soul transformations, there is much that is breaking open and needing more of a sense of direction.

The Old Chapter is no longer here anymore, it is only in the past, except maybe in our hearts and souls and minds.

We are still cleaning out and releasing, but what is so difficult for so many is that the New Chapter has not fully shown itself yet.

Many of us are in limbo, having pretty much let go of the old season of our lives, but not fully clear on where we are going next into this New Chapter.

I believe it is in part because we need some world events and maybe personal events to occur that will show us where we need to go and what we need to do next.

Are you thinking of living somewhere else? Or shifting your sense of purpose, calling or career?  Are you not knowing where to go with a relationship in your life?  Are you waking to all new ways to see your self and life?

We are in transition, in flux, and much of what helps us to feel secure does not feel so secure now.

The world looks quite crazy to many now, and it does not feel very secure.  And for many their personal lives are not feeling very secure either.

As one who lived through the revolution of the 60s/70s, this all feels familiar.  So much was changing so rapidly, and it was difficult to know who we were anymore or where we were going.

And sexual and gender roles were changing so fast too then. And now many people are even struggling with whether they are a male or female.

All this is happening as we as a human species are rapidly evolving now, questioning what we have known and what we believe in.

And with internet news sources and social media information, it is not easy to know what is fact or fiction, what is only conspiracy theory and what is really true.

And of course now pictures or film or sound can be altered to be quite different than what is real.

Our metaphoric reality pictures are foggy now, to assist us in letting go of an old paradigm and age.

We are in transition between paradigms and ages, and can no longer grip so tightly what used to be reality.

Evolution of consciousness is accelerating now, and it can be difficult sometimes to go with the changes and at the same time keep our balance and stability.

Please know this: if something is not working in your life anymore, and you keep doing the same things over and over again, and it is still not getting better; then you need to be open to doing something hugely different, outside the box you are now in.

And though it may feel safe in the box or  closet you feel protected by, you will eventually lose the spirit that makes you feel alive if you stay there too long.

This week, still in Eclipse Season, we move into Pisces time of year, as the Sun goes into Pisces Sunday February 18.

This Pisces zone is a soul based world, in touch with feelings and frequencies beyond the material world.   Pisces is sensitive and sometimes selfless, losing itself in the “world inside the world”, the “kingdom within”, or in unselfish giving, drugs or alcohol.

Meditation and the world of pure consciousness is a healthy place for Pisces to go, as is music and the world of sound.

So now in Pisces time of year, let go of any strict agenda you may have, and surrender to the Soul and Universe, trusting that you can let go of needs to always be in control.

Sometimes we stay in our minds in order to feel in control, avoiding the feelings and inner world as they are more in the mystery of life, not fully in our control.

Venus makes conjunction with Pisces ruler Neptune on Wednesday the 21st, bringing more rose colored romantic viewpoints into our lives.  Keep your feet on the ground, but also allow the colors of the love rainbow to enter your heart and soul.

What our imagination creates is often a reality that can be made real and manifest too.  Relationships that come to us from a strong heart connection with someone, may have some infatuation to it, but for some reason brings us someone meant to be in our lives.

Maybe it is not the romantic or sexual fantasy it first evokes in us that is real, but yet it is still someone who is meaningfully appearing in our lives. Maybe they are from a past life or part of our soul family, or there for a need of karmic satisfaction or release.

The next planetary marking point will be the Full Moon next week on March 1, a Full Moon in Virgo.

Remember also that all planets are direct now, and will stay that way until March 8 when Jupiter goes Retrograde.  So whether you know it or not, you are moving forward on a soul level, even if you still feel stuck in your life.

Till next week

Leo

Riding the Eclipse Waves and Astrology Forecast February 11-17.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 10, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move through the 2nd and last eclipse of Winter Eclipse Season 2018:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.

This Eclipse Season will last into March, but there are no more eclipses beyond the one this coming week.

It has already been a most eventful Eclipse Season, mostly because of the severe downfall of the Stock Market.  We have been predicting that this would happen this year and likely in this Eclipse Season: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyIVxnMPGzI&feature=youtu.be

This will be the first blow to the stock market this year, and the beginning of the transformation of the USA and world economy.   The economy is part of the Military/Economic Complex that will be greatly transformed over the next few years as we transition into the Age of Aquarius.

As we move through the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius this Eclipse Season, the stock market will remain a huge concern.  Keep in mind that there will still be attempts to go back to the Bull Market mania, but those attempts will be short-lived.  We may ultimately be looking at something resembling the 1929 crash that brought on the financial challenges of the 1930s.

With Impeachment calls also getting louder this Eclipse Season, and counter attacks rising out of the FBI memo; we can expect the culture wars to exacerbate more and more.

There is not much connection between our political parties anymore, and this is reflective of the conflict going on between two very polarized cultures in the USA.

The Charlottesville uprising during last summer’s Eclipse Season was the first obvious sign of civil war since the Trump election.

Now as economic challenges intensify and impeachment cries get louder, civil war intensifies in the USA.

The Trump presidency will be in more and more trouble.  And so we need to be awake to the possibility of distraction created with war:  “Wag the Dog”  diversions in North Korea and Syria would be more likely.

Trump has his natal Mars triggered by the Aquarius Solar Eclipse this week just as it was at the Solar Eclipse in Leo last summer.  Does that mean he will be fighting for his political life with cries for his removal as President, and/or that he will be instigating conflicts as he did with North Korea last summer?

Know for sure that his natal Mars in Leo will be touched off in some big way. Already he is said to be calling for a huge military parade in D.C. to show off USA might.

Israel and Netanyahu are again having their natal Mars affected too by this Solar Eclipse.  War clouds will be forming over Israel, Lebanon, and Syria.  And Iran and North Korea are in the cross-hairs of the USA military. If they do not bow to demands they will be severely attacked one way or another.

And this Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius will be on Thursday February 15 at 4:05 PM EST.  It will be closely conjunct the USA natal Moon in Aquarius from its birth on July 4 1776. The Chinese Year of the Dog also begins after this Solar Eclipse.

Group creation, gatherings, group missions, and activism are aligned with this Solar Eclipse.  People connecting with the USA Moon in Aquarius values of free speech, democracy, equality, and diversity are the most positive outcomes, but for all not just Americans.

Social consciousness is being raised at the Aquarius Solar Eclipse New Moon, but one person’s social conscience may be totally different from another’s social conscience.

For instance you may feel having an abortion is a woman’s right and no one should be pontificating to her about what she should do with her own body and pregnancy. To another person killing a fetus is murder and that is their social conscience.

I have noticed during this Eclipse Season that people are being “taken to the edge” so they can be made aware that something needs to change.

Often we are able to just go along with how things have been for a long time, coasting in same-old, same-old habits that have become “comfortable”.

But now we are being taken off balance in order to address deep seated problems inside ourselves, in our health, in our jobs, in our relationships.

We can no longer “push under the rug” issues that we do no want to deal with.  It is time to act and make changes.

In many of these cases we are being pushed further forward into a New Chapter of our lives, and any blockages to that passage forward will give resistance to the process.

That resistance needs to be looked at and worked with, just as a blockage in one’s body and chakra system needs help to be released and transformed.

For some this Eclipse Season will be more graceful as they are ready for the changes.  Their challenge will be more about adjusting to the changes.

Many are in transition from their old normal toward a new normal in the New Chapter.  But for now they are in limbo, as the old normal is gone and the new normal has not been fully manifested yet.

That is not an easy place to be in.  It takes patience and faith to be able to sit in that space without too much stress.  You may want to push the river of the Universe to go faster. That will not work.  Or you may get overwhelmed with fear, depression, anxiety, or panic.   That will be relieved if you believe more strongly that all is happening for a reason and will turn out OK.

So now during this week of the Solar Eclipse, energies intensify and may feel as if they will erupt.

You are being taken off balance so you can be “on your toes” for change.

Most affected by this Solar Eclipse are Aquarians, especially those born February 10-18.  Leos also are more affected, especially those born August 15-23.

Scorpio and Taurus also affected, especially those born in the late degrees of those signs.

And of course all those born with other planets in those signs and degrees will also be affected.

Those who were most affected during last summer’s Solar Eclipse in Leo will be aligned for this eclipse also.

Please do not see this as negative or painful as most people affected will not feel that.

Many will feel liberated, awakened, and more open to the winds of change. They are seeing more truths and feeling more love. And those working through the blocks will also soon feel those same things.

Look at the winds of change bringing events into our world, events that are needed to transform our world more in line with the Age of Aquarius.  There are clues everywhere during Eclipse Season to what is coming our way soon.

It is more important than ever not to let fear overtake you now.  Do whatever it takes to be centered and grounded, yet still open and awake.

We were all born so we can be alive during this huge changing of Ages.  We have been here before and are needed again to honor Love and Truth during these tumultuous times.

Till next week,

A podcast will be broadcast soon, and then hopefully a radio show podcast sometime later.

Making it Real and Astrology Forecast January 7-13

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 6, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This last week was meant to be a wake-up call (Uranus Direct) that motivates us to get  outside old boxes in our minds, hearts, and lives. 

In so doing, we release that which has blocked our way, and we are then liberated from the chains of old beliefs, decaying patterns, and crusty habits of living and expressing.

We are getting ready to make the needed changes that will help us to lead our lives in a more aligned and authentic way.  It is time for “out with the old,  get ready for the new.”

2018 has just begun, and will take us further forward on a ride of transition between the old and new- in our personal lives and in our global lives.

This week the intensity amps up and seriousness gets stronger.  That which is frivolous, superficial, or light and airy will have little space in our life rooms for expression.

It might be needed and would be appreciated, but it is not what we are being presented with energetically this week.

On Saturday eve Mars conjuncts Jupiter in Scorpio, which increases intensity and emotional volatility.   That intensity and seriousness will extend into Sunday and all through next week, as Sun and Venus in Capricorn make sextile to Jupiter in Scorpio; Mars in Scorpio makes sextile to Pluto in Capricorn; Sun and Venus in Capricorn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn; Moon in Scorpio from mid day Tuesday till Friday; and finally  Jupiter in Scorpio sextile Pluto in Scorpio on the 15th.

You will notice that all these planets and configurations are in Capricorn and Scorpio.

Those two signs “get down to business”, see at the core of truth, are very focused, and do not like time wasted by the trivial and superficial.

And most of all,  those two signs are about being REAL.  So this coming week, it will be difficult to avoid and escape.  Work is good.  Going to your personal underworld is good.  Being serious is aligned. Logical and organized is good.  Getting to what is important is needed.  Being present is required.

This week energies are yin, so we move yin-ward, so to speak; and this is especially so beginning late Monday as we enter the 4th and last quarter phase of the Moon’s cycle.

That 4th quarter will last until January 16 at the Capricorn New Moon.

So this week gives us mostly Capricorn and Scorpio.  Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which rules gravity. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto which rules the underworld.   

So you can see that movement is down to Earth and down under the Earth’s surface.  And that is what is happening for each of us too.

It is time to make things real, to make things work, to be more involved with manifesting (or at least making serious plans to manifest), building,  and grounding your ideas and ideals, your dreams, and your future plans.

In the greater world, issues will get more real there too.  It should be easier to see the grounded truths, without so much BS or fluffy marketing and spinning of the truth.

The stock market might also be getting a reality check, as might the economy in general.

Bubbles are ready to be broken, in our minds and in the world.

If you have wanted to talk frank and real- with authority- to someone in your life, this is a time to do it.  Honesty is now the best policy, especially with yourself.

What needs to be made real, to be faced straight on in your life?  There is no running away now, it is time.

There will be a potential explosiveness wanting to rise from the depths at times this week also.  Be aware of what is boiling beneath the surface of your mind and emotions.

Do your best to be in control of your expression of it.  Otherwise something may trigger its ugly expression, as you will lose control.

There is much beneath the surface that wants to come up to be expressed and dealt with now.

Then you can release it, let it go, purge it.  Do not judge it, just release it.  That will clear out inner blocks in your psyche, chakra system, and body, so you can move forward without so much inner baggage. Then you can reintegrate, re-center, and align with your Soul, Higher Self, and Universe.

Then on the 16th at the Capricorn  New Moon, there is movement forward, movement that is organized and under control.

That New Moon also opens up Winter 2018 Eclipse Season.  

The first eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo on January 31.  Then there is another eclipse:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.

The Winter Olympics will be held in South Korea from February 9- February 25.

This is smack dab within the Eclipse Season, straddling the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on the 15th.

North and South Korea are planning to talk this week with one another, this week of seriousness.  This will be getting them ready for the Olympics in Korea, but also will assist the movement of negotiations between them on the nuclear issues.

I know this: If the USA goes ahead with military drills with South Korea this winter, there will be war. If they do not just postpone, which they are doing for the Olympics, but also cancel the drills, and North Korea stops doing nuclear tests; then conditions will be set for a more peaceful potential.

And you can also expect other difficult world situations to get more serious too now, like in Iran where massive protests have broken out, or in Israel/Palestine where Jerusalem has become an explosive issue.

And the explosive potential is there this week in the world and in our own emotional body.

This can be a very good week for setting a foundation or making grounded reality for your life and for what you want to build and manifest in this New Chapter of life.

All planets are now going Direct until March 8 when Jupiter goes Retrograde. So all systems are go now for building your new cycle of life.

Till next week,

Leo

A Step Beyond and Astrology Forecast September 11- 17.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week is round 2 of eclipses, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces on Friday September 16 at 3:05 PM EDT.

That means that intensity will build this coming week appreciably until it climaxes on or around the 16th.

Since Mercury also stays Retrograde all this week, it may at times feel quite off balance emotionally and mentally.

The more one energetically rides the waves, the better.   If one holds too tightly and tries to control too much it will be more difficult this week.

Adding to the intensity of the eclipse, Mars in Sagittarius will square the points of the Sun and Moon positions of the eclipse.

That makes a T-square formation, a usually difficult pulling in 3 different directions energetically.

Sun in Virgo pulls toward physical order, logical analysis, and perfecting or fixing;  Moon in Pisces wants to be able to let go and surrender, allow the soul to speak its truth, and to go with the flow.   Both seek to be of service to others or to something greater than the self.

Mars in Sagittarius wants to stoke the fires of enthusiasm and inspiration, take the exciting adventure, and trust inspiration.   Virgo moves downward, Pisces moves inward, Sagittarius moves upward.    Virgo is earth, Pisces is water, Sagittarius is fire.

If you try too hard to figure everything out this week, you will likely be frustrated.  If you encounter challenges or difficulties, it will be best to let the process unfold without needing to totally understand everything or to force conclusions or answers.

Remember that Mercury is Retrograde and as such it requires letting go of mental controls, and instead to trust other ways of comprehension like intuition or imagination.

You may be rewinding the clock of your life now, revisiting with people from your past through dreams, memories or actual in-person connections.

This may bring up unresolved issues, issues you have put aside and thought were resolved well enough.

Current situations in your life can be seen as similar to the ones that are coming back to you from the past.

You thus have the opportunity to work through blocks or dysfunctional patterns in your life or relationships.    The past only needs to come back so it can be applied to current issues that need resolution or healing. Or perhaps it is back so you find closure to the old issues, so you can move on in your life or relationships.

If you are feeling hurt beyond what seems “logical”, then you know it is an old wound or trauma that has been triggered inside you.

Eclipses help us to move out of stuck places in our minds or hearts. They do so by taking us out of our comfort zones, creating breakdowns or breakthroughs out of those stuck energies.

Mercury Retrograde helps us to see with new lens, to perceive differently, to go outside the old boxes.  It helps us to question a belief or direction we have chosen.

We then have the opportunity to change directions, to think and feel differently, or to end up feeling even more confident of what was previously chosen.

You can see why it is wise, with the eclipses and Mercury Retrograde to not jump to conclusions, or leap into anything.

All is in process now, and bottom line thinking is off its usual abilities.   Be patient and wait it out.  Before too long (sometime after Mercury goes back direct on September 22nd) renewed clarity and direction will surface from the fog.

In the global picture during this Eclipse Season and Mercury Retrograde:  the election process for President of the USA is getting even more mean spirited from both sides; a truce has been called in war torn Syria; North Korea is looking more dangerous than ever; the USA is  getting more estranged from China and some Asian nations like the Philippines; the economy  and stock market are showing signs of difficulty; Iran and the USA are sabre rattling with one another; and the Middle East in general feels like a kind of calm before the coming storms.

These issues will tend to build intensity this week with some kind of climax around the Lunar Eclipse.   Then all will begin to shift around the 22nd on Autumn Equinox with Mercury back Direct again.

Life as we know it is rapidly changing right before our eyes now, and we are only just in the beginning of the transformation.

We have a long way to go before we reach what is needed and aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

Things in some ways will get much worse, like with societal structures and institutions, which are decaying and self destructing.

But in the process we are as a human collective re-aligning with core principles and ideals.

We are reaching more up to the heavens of our divine nature, while at the same time getting more comfortable with our connection to sacred Mother Earth and her Natural rhythms.

We are honoring more our souls and spiritual natures, while learning to trust our bodies and their wisdom at the same time.

All is connected and working together for a common unity and evolutionary growth.

All is pointing toward the star of the Age of Aquarius.  It may not be exactly what each of us wants, but it will give us all exactly what we collectively need in our travels around the wheel of our Universe into a New Age.

Expect the unexpected and do not be too surprised if we before too long see the proof that we as Earthlings are not alone in the Universe.

Till next week,

Leo

Hand of Time and Astrology Forecast August 7-13

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 6, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have passed through the gate of a New Moon in Leo from August 2. On August 18 that New Moon from August 2 will become Full- A Full Moon in Aquarius.

That will be an important Full Moon, as it begins a new Eclipse Season.  That Full Moon in Aquarius blows in the first winds of change connected to the issues that will dominate our consciousness during this new Eclipse Season.

The first Eclipse will be on September 1.  It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo.

The second and last Eclipse for this Eclipse Season will be on September 16.  It is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Pisces.

So we can expect another round of important and intense world events soon again.   There will likely be a continuation of issues around police treatment of African Americans,  and anger toward the police.

There will also likely be a continuation of terrorist events.

And of course the Presidential election process will intensify, though it seems hard to imagine it getting any more intense.

There will also likely be new world events that continue to shake up our reality and consciousness and help us to more greatly transform into the Age of Aquarius.

The economy and stock market could be vulnerable for change, especially so if interest rates are increased in September by the Federal Reserve.  The really volatile Middle East could also be ripe for new eruptions.  Also North Korea and China are getting more and more angry with neighboring countries, as well as western governments- especially the USA.

Turkey and  Russia and their roles in Syria could also be in the spotlight.  And of course events will likely erupt that will be complete surprises.

Just know that Eclipse Seasons accelerate the process of change and transformation in the world and in your personal life.

We have entered a big new chapter or season of our lives.  The transition time has been from Spring 2014 to now.  Look back at your life prior to Spring of 2014 and look at it now.

Look at the world prior to Spring 2014 and look at it now.

Islamic State was unheard of  and Ferguson had not happened yet, whch triggered all the racial tensions.  Russia had not invaded Ukraine and upset its relationship with the western world and Nato.

So now we are in an important new chapter of our collective and individual lives, a new chapter on the way toward the Age of Aquarius.

What still needs to transform in your life to make you aligned with the energies of the Age of Aquarius and also aligned with your own authentic higher self and its natural soul journey?

What is not aligned in your life now?  Are your relationships healthy?  Are your family connections other than dysfunctional?  Are you in a career or job that is satisfying and aligned with your true self or are you there just to surive financially?

Do you have love in your life or are your relaionships just relationships out of habit?

Are you still controlled by old belief systems, and patterns of behavior that keep you stuck?

Do you feel like your life is a rerun every day, with “Groundhog Day” repeats?

Do you put up with relationship patterns that are so dysfunctional that they are not heart or feeling connected anymore?  Do you just go through the motions without real connection?

Well, it is possible that the approaching Eclipse Season will break down some of these old ways and provide you with breakthroughs into new mindsets and ways.

In fact Eclipse Seasons usually do have breakdowns and breakthroughs, some small and sometimes rather large life changing ones.

Before we hit into Eclipse Season, however, we find ourselves in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Leo on August 2.    That Moon continues to wax and grow until the Full Moon in Pisces on August 18, at which time it begins its waning half of the cycle.

This Leo New Moon lunar cycle wants us to get more into our hearts and creative expression.  It beckons us to trust more and live from our spontaneous hearts and not so much from our calculating heads.

Have Leo fun this remaining summer, while it still lasts here in the Northern Hemisphere of Planet Earth.

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 1 will herald the call to get more into work and to create more order in our lives.  But that’s almost a month away.

There are only minor aspects this week, until Saturday when Saturn goes from Retrograde to Direct.

Saturn is gravity, but also the Hand Of Time.   So the clock of the Universe begins to tick again on Saturday.

You may feel or see events that seem rather fated around that date.  Saturn gives a sense of greater definiton, of rules and regulations that need to be followed.  It can make us also feel more secure, stable and grounded if not trapped and controlled.

Try to get a sense at around the Saturn turning of what new resolutions, intentions and commitments you want to make for your self and your life.

The Universal Hand of Time lets you know that time is limited and that you cannot keep putting off or procrastinating that which is important to you and your soul’s growth.

Till next week,

Leo

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces and astrology Forecast March 6-12

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on March 5, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have often written how our entrance into the New Age of Aquarius requires the breakdown of the old world, the system and its’institutions.

And each time we move into an Eclipse Season, the process of breakdown of the system intensifies, even as there is an intensification of breakthroughs too.

These breakthroughs bring new truths, more light and love, and greater alignment with the energies for an Age of Aquarius.  There is also, as part of the process, a return to values at the core of whatever entity is experiencing the transformation.

And this week, on Tuesday March 8 at 8:54 PM EST the first of two in a row eclipses erupts.

So the process of transformation through breakdowns and breakthroughs is intensifying. As we look at the political landscape through the lens of the Democrat and Republican campaigns for President of the USA, we see the people wanting a breakdown of old systems and wanting their core values to be brought back into the world.

No matter what politics you have allegiance to, and Sanders and Trump represent such different values, you must be able to see that both candidates show us how much the people of the USA  desire vast transformational change. And their popularity also shows us the breakdown of the old system.  Since Clinton is a woman, in that regard she also represents a breakdown of the old paradigm that does not truly believe women can be world leaders.

And there will be much more breakdown of the old system.  Since “the system” is run by Government, Corporations/Banks, and Military; we can expect the breakdown to come to those places.

Great change in who and what are running the government, Corporate/Banking breakdowns through stock market and other declines, and more chaotic military conflicts will show us the breakdowns.

This being a Pisces Solar Eclipse New Moon, there should be “ghosts”of the past coming back into the world and personal lives, in order to clear the way for new people, new energies, and new ways of being.

These ghosts will remind us of how it used to be, and let us know that they or it will not be coming back.  At first there may be some nostalgia for the way it used to be, but after a little while, it will be obvious that those old times are gone.

Let your self feel the sadness or grief, but when it is time- let it go- so you can be ready to more fully embrace the New Chapter of life.

The old necessarily dies when it is time, but of course can be metaphorically kept barely alive on “life support systems”.  But those systems can only delay the inevitable and give a bit more time to get used to the changes.

We are getting used to big changes in our world, as can be seen in the aforementioned current political climate.   President  Obama and his government will be gone after the election, and whomever takes over will be so much different than he has been.

And in your own life, what is dying now, what is leaving your world?  The concentration at this New Moon in Pisces is more on what is leaving than arriving, more making peace with the past than greeting the future.

If you need, do ritual around what you are letting go.   In that way you can feel the process as natural and sacred.

If you are letting go of an old relationship, take out pictures and cut them up or bury them, or burn them, or lovingly place them somewhere in your house that represents the past to you.

Feelings may be quite strong around this Pisces Solar Eclipse, sensitivity may be heightened, and desires to escape difficult situations or decisions greater.

A good strategy over the next couple of weeks would be to surrender, or let go, not control, or be too governed by any rigid agendas.

Trusting the Universe is more important than usual and meditation more helpful than usual.

No matter what is happening “on the ground”,  as bad as it may seem right now; in the bigger picture there is an old world dying and a New Age being born.   And there is no way the new world can be built on the foundation of our current old paradigm for living.

That old paradigm rewards selfishness and aggression in men; and rewards looks and submissiveness in women.

It is a dog eat dog eat world, every man or family of nation for itself, creating enemies to rid the world of.   It is a world that rewards big ego and narcissism, rewards the ability to make money and have the “right” image above all else.

If you want the Age of Aquarius for our children, grandchildren and future generations, it is imperative the old world breaks down.  That will be our sacrifice for evolution and the future.

Ironically, concentrating on being in the “here and now”, “in the moment”, is the best way to facilitate the best future.

Spiritually and practically speaking there is only “now”, even as we grieve the past or imagine the future.

We can do all that if we do not dwell or get engulfed by feelings about the past, or imaginings or worries about the future.

This Pisces Solar Eclipse New Moon will bring greater intensity, especially emotionally.  Be careful not to overreact or get defensive in your relationships.  Since feelings are being stirred up now, it is right to be aware of this fact so you can do your best to keep boundaries, and to put a lid on emotions that are on the verge of getting out of control.

Not taking personally what others say to you will also be important now. Focus on what may be bothering them that has little to do with you and more to do with their own issues.

In the greater world,  stay away from fear or hated as best you can.  All is happening for a reason from the bigger picture.  Certain personalities or countries that represent everything that is against your values are not your enemy to be hated.

Making the Diversity in Unity world come to fruition is dependent on each of us living by that standard.  Or as my Mother used to say, “it takes all kinds to make up this world”. Some we like and some we do not, as is natural.

I can’t truly understand why there have to be crocodiles, sharks or tics in the world, but part of nature’s mystery makes them all necessary.

Let go this week, trust the Universe and Nature, including Human Nature.

Talk with you next week,

Leo
