By Leo Knighton Tallarico

A bugle sounds for us to wake up from hiding this week.  As the bugle sounds, the first strong winds of Summer Eclipse Season 2019 begin to blow in.

The first of 2 eclipses, however, does not arrive until July 2; nevertheless, the Full Moon in Sagittarius this week on Monday the 17th opens up the Eclipse Season. And Summer Solstice is also this week on Friday the 21st.

Summer Solstice on the 21st is at 11:54 AM EDT. This day is the day when light is at its greatest and dark is at its least.  But dark minutes start growing right after the Summer Solstice and light begins to retreat.

Summer Solstice is also the beginning of having the Sun in Cancer for the next 30 days. The Sun in Cancer, the sign of Mother nature, shows us a time when Nature is in full bloom at its most abundant.  Cancer is a sign of nurturance, like a Mother feeding a baby.

Cancer likes to be taken care of or to take care of others, and at its best loves unconditionally.  At its worst it lacks boundaries and can hover over those it loves, giving them little room to breathe- hence the word s-mother.

This is a good month to be with family, whatever family truly means to you.  Being supportive and being supported is in line with Cancer too.

The next 9 months or so will thrust us forward into new dimensions of Love and Truth, even as darker realities burst some bubbles of our illusions.

This Summer Eclipse Season 2019 will last into August, and it will bring with it the beginning of presidential debates in preparation  for Election Day in November 2020.

Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 will be a climactic time period, which will include the powerful and important Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12, 2020.  That conjunction will be right after and conjunct the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon In Cancer on January 10, 2020. (See webinar information below).

Right now, this week we awaken our spirits and souls with the Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius, which is only one day after an important Jupiter/Neptune square.  That square has Jupiter in Sagittarius (its favorite place to be) squaring Neptune in Pisces (its favorite place to be) on Sunday June 16.

And both Jupiter and Neptune are part of the signature of the Sagittarius Full Moon the next day on June 17.  Jupiter is widely conjunct the Moon, while Neptune in Pisces is square that Moon.

This is a lot of energy opening up. It may feel chaotic at times for some. Others may experience an opening into spiritual dimensions, with increased signs and synchronicities from the Universe.

The Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon is usually one that opens up the mind and stimulates a need to find resolution, meaning and understanding, even in the face of much information to sort out.

Lively conversation is usually opened up during this Sag Full Moon.  Jumping to conclusions is common during this lunation.  Enhanced intuition and rapid fire thinking are common at this full moon.

With Jupiter and Neptune also involved, some will get confused and/or out of usual mental balance.

If you can surrender your need to keep an agenda or fixed paradigm, you may open to new perceptions and judgments that will assist your growth.

And surrender is a good strategy for this week, a surrender to something greater and to a bigger picture of what is happening.

You may also this week get a good sense of what this Summer Eclipse Season is all about for you and for our world.  What issues are needing to be focused on?  What needs to be changed or transformed?  What needs to be released? What do you need to let in?

Eclipse Seasons always shake us out of status quo reality and thinking. They take us off our usual balance so we can be more vulnerable to growing and evolving. They bring a greater energetic intensity too.

Besides the Solar Eclipse on July 2, there is a Lunar Eclipse on July 16; and mixed in with it all is Mercury being Retrograde from July 2 through July 31.

Back to this week: We have Jupiter square Neptune on Sunday June 16 (though it will be felt most of the week); Mercury making aspects to Neptune, Jupiter, and Saturn- also on the 16th.

Neptune is slowing down now to go Retrograde on Friday the 21st- the same day as the Summer Solstice. When a planet slows down to change directions its energy is much stronger. Confusion, chaos, as well as deeper insight and psychic abilities are enhanced with a strong Neptune. The Inner Kingdom beckons.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius is on the 17th, merging with the aforementioned Neptune aspect of the 16th. It may be too easy for some to be overwhelmed with information and details now.

It may also be challenging for some to find truth within all the clashing information and energy shifts.

That search for truth is our reality most of the time now. Everyone (most especially news media) is pushing an agenda and few seem to be interested in what is real or true if it does not fit into the agenda.

On Wednesday the 19th the conjunction of Mercury and Mars opposes Pluto.  That is a very intense combination and very powerful.  There is more likelihood to be involved in a war of words this week in our personal life conversations. Anger is too easy to feel and express now- be careful.

Even more dangerously, a war of words out in the world is getting more likely now.  Even before this week, the USA and Iran have been thrust into near war.

The USA leadership is obviously setting us up for war with Iran, as it did similarly with Iraq and Libya. Remember Iraq being said to possess weapons of mass destruction?

Can “we the people” be that stupid again?  The USA and Western World made an agreement with Iran under the Obama administration, and Iran is said to have complied.

Trump unilaterally “tore up” the agreement and now through increasing sanctions is pushing Iran into extreme economic  difficulty.

We have made greater enemy of Russia and China also, with economic sanctions and tariffs on each of them.

Remember however, that all this Old World separation and enemy making is not our future. We are needing a deep purge of this old fecal matter from our collective unconscious.

The dark in our world is growing inside its walls of separation, while at the same time light is pushing through the cracks of those walls, wanting to inspire us to leave the darkened walls and to create a new world out in the fields of Nature.

That Nature so needs our loving embrace now, and we need its embrace too.  The technological world we are building must stop its movement away from having healthy bodies and a healthy Earth to live on.

Technology has a very important role in the Age of Aquarius, but without a healthy Earth and healthy human bodies and souls to cradle it, all will vanish.

These next 9 months are crucial for what will happen on Election Day and after.

Let’s get a good start on it all this week as Summer Eclipse Season 2019 commences, as Summer Solstice occurs too.

The “reality” of the mainstream culture is distorted and toxified now.   It is an old paradigm that we have been programmed into.

George Orwell was divinely inspired to write the book 1984.  Look around at our world now. So many have forgotten how to truly think for themselves, on both sides of thinking.  There is a conservative agenda’s mantra to follow and uniform to wear. And there is a liberal political correctness to follow and uniform to wear.

The New Age thrusts us outside the boxes, so we can think and feel for ourselves

Remember the movie Truman’s World with Jim Carrey?  He was programmed from birth to believe real life was what he was experiencing every day. But his “real life” was just a set for the TV program he was constantly the star of, 24 hours a day- every day.  His view of nature was in reality a made up television set.  On the edges of the set, however unbeknownst to him, curtains could be opened to view and enter true Nature and the Real World.

There is no Age of Aquarius until enough people have left the programmed set and seen the beauty and wonder beyond the walls.

Getting Ready and Astrology Forecast May 26-June 1

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on May 25, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It must be pretty obvious now to most everyone that we are on the cusp of enormous change and transformation in the United States and in the greater world.

Countries are becoming more nationalistic and self serving;  religions are at war with one another; liberal and conservative cultures seem to have little middle ground of connection between them.

These countries that are becoming more nationalistic are beefing up their militaries and rapidly finding enemies and allies. They are sending out messages of aggression to one another. This is how major wars have always begun. The Middle East is a tinder box susceptible to being ignited. Iran is heating up as it is in the cross hairs of the USA and Israel.

The economy is gearing up for major declines in the stock market, and there are trade wars that keep heating up, especially between China and the USA.

The Old World has a paradigm of “every man  for himself”, “dog-eat-dog”, “survival of the fittest”  separatism.   This belief system all too often sees making relationship, love, empathy and compassion as weaknesses or naivete.

It sees compromise as losing one’s toughness; giving in as “blinking first” and losing.

And right now those old world beliefs are strong in the minds and hearts of so-called leaders in the world.

It is easy to be made to feel like a “snow-flake”, illogical dreamer, or an innocent child for believing in the connections, believing we live in a sacred and meaningful world, believing we humans are all members of the same family, or believing we are in transition between ages.

But anyone who is evolving and has seen the light knows that those who built and believe in those old age ways of separation are the ones who don’t get it. They are pushing us all to mutual destruction.

But we also know that the Old World is taking its last gasps of dominance on this planet, soon delivering the members of that old world into an historical container that is already inhabited by dinosaurs and the like.

Our survival is now dependent on humans evolving into a consciousness that knows we all need to come together as ONE in order to survive.  We each need to find our distinct authentic individuality and from there find unity: Diversity within Unity.

We have no more time to take for granted the Earth Mother who has brought us into the world.

We can no longer see the Sky Father as merely a scientific material combination of unrelated stars and planets and galaxies in a “governed by chance” Universe.

We are ready for the coming challenges, ready to co-create as our worlds open up; moving  out of our status-quo cages that have been built by the programming of an old paradigm and age.

Mid June will bring us the first winds of Summer Eclipse Season 2019.  Saturn/Pluto will be getting closer in their conjunction with one another.

Mid December will bring us the first winds of Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020.

That second season will bring us the exact conjunction of Saturn/Pluto along with two powerful eclipses.  There will then be a most rapid acceleration of transition between ages.  (I am now scheduling a webinar for Saturday June 22 from noon-4:30 PM EDT.  We will look at Saturn/Pluto, its history and effect on our human condition then and now. And I will give interpretation for each webinar participant concerning the effect of Saturn/Pluto in their own charts and lives. In this webinar we also take a peek at the next presidential election in November 2020, and an outlook on the economy and the condition of our lives going forward: fee $120 with 1 scholarship offered for those most in need. Write me at soulus@aol.com for more info and to sign up.)

This week we move into the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Taurus on May 4.

This last quarter Moon begins in Pisces on Sunday May 26 this week.  That Pisces Moon seeks inner reflection and connection with one’s sensitivity and need to “go with the flow.  The fast mind and nervous system of Sun in Gemini will challenge that flow.

This last quarter lunar cycle this week shows us a Moon getting slimmer and slimmer, bringing us into the dark inner star-studded sky of surrender.

It is time to let go this week of attachments, and get ready for new beginnings next week at the Gemini New Moon on Monday June 3.

Mercury and Venus this week both connect with Neptune and Jupiter, helping our relating skills if we are high-minded and looking for meaning and magic.

The Trump voyage to impeachment gets more real each week, as at the same time the USA connections with the world around it get more and more separating and distant. But it has some new “friends” now.

One of the USA’s best national “friends” now is Saudi Arabia.  Saudi Arabia treats women like dirt. Women only recently are being considered for the right to drive a car..

A female women’s rights activist there was jailed a year ago and flogged, electrocuted,  rape threatened, and water-boarded. Her  crime was being an activist for women being able to drive and to overhaul the Male Guardianship over women in Saudi Arabia.

Why is there no outcry for human rights and women’s rights in Saudi Arabia?

There is such a need for revolution and evolution now in alignment with Age of Aquarius values.

As the old world shows its ugly head now more and more, the cracks in its foundation create more space for the light of a New Age to shine through.

Concentrate on that light in your meditations, feel it penetrating your body, mind and soul.  It is as bright as the old world dramas are dark.

Release that darkness and decay from inside your old world programming, and open more and more to the light of the Age of Aquarius.

Love and Truth are its foundation and nothing can be stronger than that.

See you next week,

Leo

Also I will begin a Podcast/Radio show series on Monday June 3 at the Gemini New Moon. Summer Eclipse Season 2019 begins at that new moon, though the first eclipse will still be a month away.

Wesak Full Scorpio Moon and Astrology Forecast May 12-18.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 11, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This is such a time of uncertainty now.  It is difficult for many to feel OK inside, as stress tries to creep in and take over.

If you are paying attention, you can see how many issues out in the world are being taken “to the edge”:  Israel/Gaza; Israel/Iran; North Korea again; Venezuela; trade wars with China and the economy;  Syria/Israel.

The current US presidential administration feels very chaotic and unpredictable, but what is much worse is that it answers to no one, certainly not the people.  Congress and the executive branch of the USA are at war with one another.  Impeachment is a real possibility.

So called liberal and conservative USA cultures are at war with one another, not truly recognizing that both are American and world citizens of the same human family.  These splits into enemy camps takes us into very potentially disastrous situations.

When you look at TV shows and movies, most are about disasters and horror and are very dark and filled with gore and death.  Even the wildly popular Game of Thrones has so much death and destruction and darkness in it.

There is no way a culture that sees and acts out so much separation and enmity between peoples based on religion, race, nationality, sexual orientation, etc. can last long. And with nuclear weapons so available now, as well as other weapons of mass destruction, we are headed for disaster if nothing changes soon.

And can you believe how many school shootings there are now?  The old world is certainly in decay, as was Rome around the time of Christ.   Ages changed from Age of Aries to Age of Pisces around that time of the Roman Empire decay.

And now we are again in crisis and decay, as Ages shift from the Pisces Age to the Age of Aquarius.

Yes most people recognize that Climate Change is real and must be reversed soon if we are to survive as a human family. But on a deeper level the real problem is about our beliefs, our stories, our priorities, our values, our paradigm for living as humans on Planet Earth and in the Universe.

The old ways and paradigm must come to an end, and for so many people there is nothing they can imagine to replace it.  For them the old world must be brought back somehow.  Hence MAGA.

Going back to the ’50s in America, so much seemed so innocent, until you looked under the rug to find abuse of African Americans, LGBTQ peoples, women, and anyone else who did not fit into that paradigm.

The Old America is run now by billionaires, mega corporations, and neocons who bully other countries and push for war against countries that have many rich resources and relatively weak militaries.

And neo-liberals have now also formed and they also want regime change of these other countries by force.  America was not invited into Syria or Venezuela, nor was it invited into Iraq or Libya, two other countries we attacked, destabilized, and destroyed.

Civilian populace was innocent, yet so many were killed by USA and western nation bombings.

And remember none of those countries attacked the USA nor threatened to do so.

We need our energies focused now not on what happened before, or on these atrocities, but instead on how we can turn things around toward Love and Truth for a new age.

People all too often now seem to care more about material needs than soul needs and heart and soul connections.

We cannot continue, as so many are doing, to just go about our lives like robots.  We have given so much of our attention to our phones and devices, to our TV and movies.  We are certainly not as connected to our hearts and to one another now.

Game of Thrones has its dark and long Winter Time and its zombie-like inhabitants who just keep coming to bring on death for others.

Metaphorically speaking we are turning into the walking dead.  We go through the motions of being vital and alive, but so many and so often we are just walking dead, unconsciously moving toward our destruction.

But it is not hopeless. We can still turn things around by cleaning out the old paradigm and the traumas we have experienced from it.

So many are now open to the Connections, to all the dots in the Universe being connected.  As we learn to stay longer and longer in the connections, we experience many synchronicities and are shown signs and symbols that show us our way.

More and more we see all in a meaningful light, everything happening for a reason.  Love grows stronger and stronger in our hearts and souls and bodies; Truth gets stronger and stronger in our minds, souls and bodies.

Fear and ego need to take a back seat in the drive down through our Soul Path.  Spirit brings us more into light.   And overall we move on our path toward more integration, as we accept our dark and light, male and female, yang and yin opposites held in union not in war with one another.

These unions indelibly show that opposites can be joined together as ONE.

This is within the new paradigm that shows us unity of opposites and becomes Diversity Within Unity, the calling card of the Age of Aquarius.

Would it not be great when Conservative and Progressive are understood as opposites that can form a relationship with one another. It is a relationship that honors the values and integrity of each, while also recognizing what unites them.   Love of the country, love of the human community, love of the Earth and Sky realms are what will take us forward together.

But truth is also important, so recognizing the  grave challenges that are moving into our world now is important too.

This week we are in the 2nd quarter of the lunar cycle, and waxing toward a Scorpio Full Moon on Saturday the 18th.

The solid calm of the Taurus Sun will be challenged by the intensely primal passions of a Scorpio Moon.

So be awake to the shifting of energies on Thursday the 16th when the Moon moves out of pleasant Libra and into intensified Scorpio, getting us ready for the Full Moon in Scorpio.

The Full Moon in Scorpio is on Saturday May 18 at 5:11 PM EDT.  Venus in Taurus is conjunct Uranus in Taurus also that day, so relationships will be in the spotlight.  Important now to balance stable and secure needs with feelings of change and transformation.

This Scorpio Full Moon is an annual affair that is also called the Wesak Full Moon.  It is said that Buddha was born at a Wesak Full Moon. Buddhists also believe that Buddha was enlightened and died on that same Full Moon in other years

The Wesak Full Moon is considered by many to be the most powerful of the year.  Meditate on that Full Moon and see what you experience.

On Wednesday May 15, just a few days before the Wesak Full Moon, Venus goes into Taurus and Mars into Cancer.

There are desires that day to find comfort and care, home and safety. Allow yourself that indulgence so you can afterwards find more energy and focus for living.

Summer Eclipse Season is about a month away from the first winds of change to be felt.

See you next week

Leo
