Riding Waves and Astrology Forecast June 17-23

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 16, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we ride the wave created last week at the New Moon in Gemini on June 13.

This waxing half of the lunar cycle will continue until the Full Moon in Capricorn on June 27/28.  Then comes the yin-ward waning half, which continues until the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 12.

The actual beginning of Summer Eclipse Season 2018 is around the time of that Capricorn Full Moon on June 27/28   I have just put out a video on the Eclipse Season https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QkSNDn0QCg&feature=youtu.be

This week as we ride the wave of the waxing Moon, we also pass through the time of the Summer Solstice which is also the beginning of the Sun’s movement into Cancer.

That moment of Summer Solstice 2018 is at 6:07 AM EDT.  Of course this is a good time and day for meditation, intentions for the summer season, and if so oriented- ceremony or ritual.

Summer Solstice is the time when the light of day is at its greatest in the Northern Hemisphere and dark night minutes are at their weakest presence.

So yang “male” is at its zenith while yin “female” is at its lowest point.  But the transition happens right afterward to increasing yin dark and decreasing yang light.  And of course then Autumn Equinox brings the equal balance between them.

So a waxing Moon and a Summer Solstice this week show energies on the upswing for going after what one seeks or desires, for creative impulses, for success and outer growth.

As Yin begins to get stronger after the Summer Solstice,  we begin to allow energies of inner values, inner exploration, empathy, relationship, receptivity and community to start rising.

Cancer is a perfect sign for this transition because as a Cardinal sign it takes charge and makes things happen; yet as a water sign it is feeling oriented, empathetic and a holder of inner values.

Cancer is also nurturing, unconditional love, and family, with needs for privacy, safety and protection. As such, Cancer can sometimes hover with over protection and without healthy emotional boundaries.  It is a cultural archetype for parent, especially mom; or on the contrary for baby or other some other vulnerable being needing a nurturer.

Cancers can be either nurturer or nurturee,  as the emotional need for symbiosis that Mother and baby experience together is what is desired. In a healthy adult the need is for deep soul connection and emotional intimacy with others.

Sun in Cancer lasts until July 22, when it goes into Leo.

And this year both Cancer and Leo will be in the spotlight as there is a Solar Eclipse in Cancer and one in Leo this summer.  More on that in a later forecast closer to the events.

This week, as we move through the upward moving waves of the waxing Moon and Summer Solstice,  we also encounter the mystical frequencies of Neptune changing from Direct to Retrograde.

Neptune’s rays will be strongest on the couple of days surrounding its turning on Monday June 18.

If one can surrender one’s over-thinking mind, one’s ruling ego, and one’s tight agendas; then you can bask in the calm waters and inner dimensions of God of the Sea- Neptune.

Magic, synchronicity, meaningful symbols from the Universe, and feelings of spiritual connections and empathy will tend to carry you.

Neptune changing directions can also bring you to a Twilight Zone of confusion and uncertainty.

Then on the 21st, along with the Solstice, is an opposition between “male” Mars in Aquarius and “female” Venus in Leo.

Do you want to argue for what is best for our human condition (Aquarius) or what is more in line with our heart’s desire (Leo)?  Do you feel more like being a mentally principled distinct “outside the box” individual (Aquarius) or a well known popular leader and charmer (Leo)?

And of course America’s president is a Leo rising narcissist.  Of course most Leo planetary placements do not bring narcissism, but unhealthy ones do.

And now 2 narcissists who seem to understand each other are apparently trying to find agreement and peace together for their countries: Trump and Kim Jung Un.

How much will Trump’s need to become a Nobel Peace Prize winner keep him going after the peace? How much will Kim’s need to be a world player keep him going after the agreement?

Remember that in the bigger picture, we have entered (Since the Aries New Moon portal opened on April 15) a whole new chapter of life on Earth, one that brings us further forward on the path to the destruction of the Old World paradigm and transformation into a New World paradigm.

The Military/Economic Complex of the Empire is transforming into the Age of Aquarius- which will better serve “we the people” and the principles of Love and Truth.

But the “end of the world as we know it” will pick up speed soon. Is it not obvious how the Trump phenomenon is breaking down the old rules and ways of being, even the ones you might like?

This breakdown is serving as a catalyst for the collapse of many institutions, civil ways of relating, etc. And it may look pretty bad as the baby appears to be thrown out with the bathwater, but this is the Universe’s way of creating the transformation.

We each need to concentrate on the new consciousness, spiritual renaissance, connecting to spirit and soul, and being with others who are also a part of the New Paradigm.  And as people who are awakening come to you, you will help midwife them onto their spiritual path and the New World.

This is an exciting time to be alive.  The coming eclipses will speed up the expansion of consciousness needed for the transformation. But it will also speed up the process of the death process.

Have you noticed lately how more people seem to be checking out through suicide or other forms of death?   This happens during transition  times, as some people have served their purpose already and are not to be a part of this New Chapter which will be quite challenging for many.

Next week we will be getting into the beginning of Summer Eclipse Season 2018 with a Full Moon in Capricorn conjunct Saturn.

Let’s talk then

Goddess Be and Astrology Forecast June 18-24.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on June 17, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week, as we leave the fast paced mentally active Gemini energies for the more contained energies of nurturance in Cancer.

On Tuesday/Wednesday the 20th/21st there is the important yearly transition from spring to summer at the Summer Solstice.  This event happens overnight on June 21 at 12:24 AM EDT.   On Friday June 23 at 10:31 PM EDT, the Cancer theme continues when the Moon meets the Sun for a New Moon in Cancer.

At the Summer Solstice, Light minutes of the day are at their greatest in relation to Dark minutes of the day.  But starting then, dark minutes begin to grow while light minutes begin to wane. Then at Autumn Equinox light and dark are equal, just as they are at Spring Equinox.

Summer Solstice is symbolically similar to high noon of a day.  Winter Solstice is like midnight time of day.    Spring Equinox is like dawn and Autumn Equinox is like sunset.

So now the Sun is at its zenith in the northern hemisphere, as heat has been growing as well as light.

Usually at this time of year events in the world have heated up also, and this year should not be any different.

And in August, with two major eclipses, including most importantly a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 21, which will travel across the USA, issues and events will then be on fire.

So for now feel the shift to summer, and to the Sun going into Cancer, which it does every year at Summer Solstice.

The sign Cancer feels right when following what feels natural at the time, and following where one’s feelings take one.

At Cancer time of year Nature is at its most abundant, and there can be a strong feeling of being taken care of by Mother Nature.

And Cancer is an archetype of Mother, whether that be personal Mother or a more Universal Mother Goddess. The Moon is the ruling “planet” of Cancer.

With the Cancer Mother, one wants to feel safe and sound, nurtured and cared for, seen and appreciated.

So many people did not get that experience from their personal Mother or Father (who can also represent that Cancer nurturer archetype).

Ou world has gotten so far away from what is natural and right, and from what the Feminine truly represents, which is why finding true Motherly care can be so difficult.

Certainly in the USA, the programming is to accomplish and be successful out in the world, often at the expense of the inner world and inner values.  One is expected to Do, not just Be, which is what the sign Cancer represents.

When the Mother is taking care of a baby, she is loving it for just who it is, for just being itself.  This is Cancer love, as is making this baby feel safe, nurtured and nourished.

To love someone unconditionally is Cancer at its best.  To hover over, to not respect others’ boundaries, and to emote without control, is Cancer at its worst.

Cancer can also tend toward permisssiveness, in contrast to its opposite sign Capricorn, which tends toward strictness and firm rules.

So now at Cancer time of year, at the Summer Solstice and New Moon in Cancer, we  will be most aligned if we can just Be; if we can do things that nurture us; if we can allow ourselves to follow our instincts and feelings more than our minds.

Cancer also represents family, both our birth family and the grown up family we develop when we have children.

Many people are disappointed with blood family from their childhood, and do not feel appreciated by that family as they grow up.

So instead more and more people are seeking a sense of family from friends and from those who one feels seen by and appreciated.  One seeks family of those who are “birds of a feather” with them.

The Age of Aquarius brings us more and more connections that are beyond the traditional sense of family. This includes gay and lesbian families, or families with Trans members, or families with children who were conceived in ways other than male and female intercourse. Cloning and stem cell research is also very Aquarius.

These trends certainly will never preclude male and female mating prevailing, which has always been nature’s choice for all its creatures.

So in this New Age, the experience of family is transforming, and Cancer’s best application is knowing we are all family, all humans together in One great big, though often dysfunctional family.

This lunar cycle begun at the Cancer New Moon on June 23 is the last lunar cycle before Eclipse Season begins. Eclipse Season begins to blow in at the Leo New Moon on July 23, to be followed by a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on August 7 and a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 21.

So now at the New Moon in Cancer this week, it is time to get started, as at all New Moons.

It is best to get started on bringing things together, finding nurturing circumstances and people, and allowing your self to be loved and taken care of- by yourself and others. And of course it is a great time to nurture and care for others, especially  those who are vulnerable.

The Goddess is at her strongest at Cancer time of year.  It is now best to trust the Feminine forces of the Earth and Universe. Also trust your feelings, yet also trust your strength and Mother Bear protectiveness when those you love are hurting.

In the greater world Cancer time of year unfortunately often translates into a toxic family/tribal consciousness.

It becomes my family or nation or culture or religion against yours.  Do not get sucked in to the fear and hatred that comes with this Hatfield/McCoy conflictual attitude.

My way is not better or worse than anyone else’s way- no matter how it appears.   Each culture has its own ways that are right for them.  We need to find and feed the places of connection between us.

There is great danger now of  the growing splits and separations to tear us all apart and create even more inequities, abuses, and conflicts.

We are at the same time moving closer together, toward greater connection and love, more meaning and synchronicity.  We are moving into a Diversity within Unity Age of Aquarius.

Both worlds are happening simultaneously.

We can no longer straddle the fence.  It is time to choose a direction. Choose before the Eclipses in August. Begin to arrange your life in accordance with that choice.

Till next week,

Leo

We will do a video in July for the important August Total Solar Eclipse.

There is a video now of my recent talk at the Enlightenment Expo that my friend Jonne Trees has recorded:     https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D52FYcHTM3U.

The subject is about navigating the planetary changes this year.

Please take a look at the video David Lonebear Sanipass and I created recently- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W2WIRHQ5IQ

If you need any help with your relationship now, I have done couples’ counseling for many years. Do you need to identify and work out old patterns? Do you need to decide whether to stay or go?  I use the astrological model to help in the counseling process. We can use Skype if outside New England. Write me at soulus@aol.com if interested.

Chiron the Middle Man and Astrology Forecast June 11-17.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on June 10, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We went through a strong turning point last week, in alignment with the Full Moon in Sagittarius and Jupiter turning Direct.

Planetary movements lately have packed more punch than usual.   We are being given little leeway from making big transformational decisions and movements in our lives.

I have noticed lately that many people are rethinking what they want and where they are going.

I believe it because the turns we take this year, when we absolutely commit to them, will have no roads going back.  Bridges will be burned.

For many this is an important time of crossroads.   Are we really choosing which way we are going, or is it already determined by something larger than our personal will?

Perhaps the only choice we truly have is whether we decide to follow our “Higher Self” or our “Lower Self”.

Is there a middle ground? Are there options that would satisfy our “lower” self and “higher” self?

In this context I mean our direction toward the Heavens or instead toward the Earth;  or coming from our upper chakras or instead from our lower chakras.

Our crown chakra receives information and inspiration from “higher” realms, and our root chakra receives wisdom and pulls down toward the Earth.

Our religions have made that which is above (in Heaven) good, but that which is down below (Hell) bad.   Because of this programming we are taught not to trust our instincts, similar instincts that our animal brothers and sisters rely upon.

But when it comes to societal expectations, our lower chakras or lower instincts are often called upon in order to compete, to make money, to “play the game” of the world.  We believe we need those instincts so we can survive and thrive in our life.

Each one of us has a “natural” tendency to go toward either the higher or lower road.

In our myths, which may have more truth in them than we have been taught, the Olympian Gods and Goddesses up high were at war with the Titan Gods and Goddesses down on the Earth.

And each of us is a combination of the Gods and Goddessses from the Skies and the Gods and Goddesses from down on the Earth.

We spoke last week of the theory that people from other planets came to Earth and mated with people born of the Earth.

And it is interesting that the planets in astrology reflect the Gods and Goddesses from our “myths”, like Venus, Mars, etc.

So we live with a conflict between our “higher” needs and our “lower” needs.  Of course lower gets a bad rap, but in reality it is just having connection with the Earth and our creature comforts and needs.

Is there something in Astrology that links higher realms with lower realms?   There are the transformational planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto from on high, who are ambassadors for the Age of Aquarius. They are meant to help us to move beyond our old age and its ways.

Saturn on down represents our more personal mundane needs.

What is the link between them?: Chiron.

Chiron sits in between Saturn and Uranus, so perfectly between the transpersonal Deities on high and the more personal Deities from the gravity of Earth.  And interestingly, Saturn is considered the planet that represents gravity and grounding.

Chiron by myth was the wounded healer who took the place of Prometheus, he who was stealing fire from the Gods to bring to mortals of the Earth.

Chiron took over for Prometheus who was tied down, while his liver was being eaten by a large bird.

Chiron, who was a mentor and teacher of humans, asked the god of gods Jupiter if he could change places with Prometheus.  He was allowed to do so only if he would give up an important part of his immortality. This was not his ability to live forever, but was his ability to be distant from the feelings and pain of mortals.   He became the wounded healer god who could truly empathize with humans and their stuggles.

He did change places, and Prometheus was allowed to complete his task of giving fire or spirit or freedom to humans.

So you can see how Chiron was a bridge between higher and lower and between immortals and mortals.

So in your soul journey of transformation into the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius, it is important to know that it is right to feel secure and safe and grounded and needing from your ego self, as long as it is in service to the needs of your Higher Self and Universe.

Look for Chiron in your natal chart to find clues on how to strike that balance.

This week, which is after the full moon last week, we move into the waning half of the lunar cycle.

The “climax” has already been experienced, and now it is time to process and begin to sort through what has been activated from that turning point last week.

Did you contemplate changing directions last week? Will you change?

Or do you need to make an even stronger commitment to the direction you had already chosen? Take your time.

The transformational process has times when we question the choices we have made, and sometimes we reverse course.

But usually the original choice was aligned with our natural transformational evolution. But maybe we “threw out the baby with the bathwater” and not honored our more human needs of comfort, security, affection, grief, and sensitivity for those left behind.

You may still keep to your original direction, and yet find balance with your needs for grounded security.

Now we process during this waning half of the lunar cycle.   And with Neptune going Retrograde on Friday the 16th, we need to let go, not think so much, and surrender to the process and the Universe this week.

If we try too hard to figure it all out this week from our left brain bottom line logic, we will get anxious and frustrated.

Trust is important now.  We can only truly surrender if we can be vulnerable enough to let go and trust in the process of Soul and the Universe.

Next week is Summer Solstice and a New Moon in Cancer.  So next week will give us more motivation to “get it together”.

But for now, let go and let the inner “gods and goddesses”weave their soul magic.

Till next week,

Leo

We will do a video in July for the important August Total Solar Eclipse.

Solstice Turning Point and Astrology Forecast June 19-25

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 18, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The next couple of weeks will bring us some important planetary movement, with new doors ready to open for us.

There is a Full Moon in Sagittarius Monday, which is the same day as the annual Summer Solstice and a renewal of the mutable Grand Cross.    

Next Sunday the 26th brings an intense Jupiter trine Pluto.  And most importantly on June 29 Mars finally goes back Direct again.

The first turning point is this Monday June 20.  It is more important than the usual Summer Solstice as there is Full Moon and Mutable Grand Cross also.

Summer Solstice is always a major turning point in the year as it begins a new Season in the northern hemisphere, Summer.  The exact moment of Summer Solstice is 6:34 PM EDT.

Light/yang minutes of the day are at their greatest then, with dark/yin minutes at their least.

Metaphorically, the active outer directed energies are supreme, with the inner oriented, more subtle and subdued energies at their lowest in expression.

After today the dark rises and the light falls slowly until Autumn Equinox when light and dark are equal.

Now at the Summer Solstice people are generally more excited and “up” than at Winter Solstice for instance.

This year there is a Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius at 7:02 AM on the 20th.  This is also a lively happening, stimulating needs to figure things out through relating and communicating.

Also there is a mutable Grand Cross with Mercury in Gemini making aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius, Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Virgo.

It willl be easy for people to leap into things they would usually think about at other times.

Leaping could bring positive results because of being outside the usual boxes- or negative results because one did not look before they leaped or talked.

The span of influence covered by these planetary movements on June 20 is about 5 days, from the 18th to the 23rd, with emphasis on the 20th.

Some astrologers are predicting a really crazy time period around the 20th, but can it be much more crazy than it has been lately?

Nevertheless, look for the planetary movements around the 20th to open some doors, at least in your consciousness, in preparation for Mars going Direct on the 29th of June.

After the 29th a huge portal or door will open,, allowing you to get off the pause button in your life.

You will more easily move forward and make decisions and feel like life has opened back up for you. This does not mean that magically on the 29th all your troubles or frustrations will be eliminated.

It means that energetically things begin to open up- slowly at first then picking up more steam later.  You should be able to feel the shift around the 29th.

Since we last wrote to you the tragedy in Orlando erupted into our world and consciousness.

Such pain and suffering and horrifying fear were felt.  People’s real attitudes and feelings toward LGBT people, toward Islam, toward security fears, and toward guns opened up into the light.

There are so many important discussions that need to be had now in our American community.   But there is such a lack of flexibility and open-mindedness and respect for others’s opinions in the way.

We  are truly a disfunctional community that so deperately needs to come together at this crucial time for humanity on Earth.

We are in transiton between paradigms and ages, and I am afraid that these horrifying events will continue to happen until we come together to find answers that are aligned with the new age we are entering.

We will have a new President elected in less than 6 months now, as President Obama and his family prepare for life outside the White House.

None of us agree with everything his Presidency accomplished and we know little was done to break up the dominance of the Military/Industrial Complex that runs our democracy and lives.

But his presidency should be appreciated for the many changes that are aligned with the Age Of Aquarius.

There has been a respect shown for other cultures,religions, and nations, an honoring of those who were previously looked down on and abused, a thoughtful approach to challenges and problems, a finesse-full style of governing.

With what we likely have coming in contrast, he will be missed.

For now as he is about to leave, one can see more chaos ready to enter.  And more reactionary control measures to hold down the out of control events.

Right wing nationalism is growing stronger in Europe now as in the Uniter States.

At the same time the New Age is bursting at the seams, ready to bring more love and light in a big way.

Concentrate on that and you will be alright.  Do not get too focused on the horrible dramas that continue to play out. Yes feel the commpassion for those who are suffering, but do not let yourself be overcome with fear or rage.

Most people will be swept up by the drama, the strong emotions, the hatred and fear of those who are being demonized.

The only demon to be fought is our own human desire to  have a demonized enemy and be filled with hatred and fear for them.   As always much of the real work now is internal, with our own beliefs and attitudes.

This week the Summer Solstice brings with it the Sun moving into Cancer.  It is time for family and friends, for being in safe and protected environments where you feel nurtured and “seen” and appreciated.

Mars Direct is soon now.  Get your inner and outer worlds prepared for the movement forward after June 29.  Summer Solstice/Full Moon will be a turning point in that process.

Till next week,

Leo

Time to start thinking if you want to be involved in the webinars in August.

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday August 6 at 1 PM  EDT.  The series will continue Saturdays August 13 and 20th at 1 PM to finish up the series.   Each class will last approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.
I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world events  will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is to be paid prior to the classes.
 Recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.

 

 

 

 

Letting Go of the Baggage and Astrology Forecast June 12-18

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 11, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Life is on hold until after Mars goes Direct on June 29. This does not mean you can do nothing in the interim;  it just means there is a feeling and reality that efforts to direct one’s attention to big steps forward are difficult if not impossible.

While we are waiting for the gate into a new phase of life to open, many of us are facing some real challenges. In fact for many their most sensitive and diffcults wounds or traumas have been triggered.

They are caught up in emotions that have been overwhelming their usual stable sanity.

Seems to me that we are cleaning up as much baggage as we can before we face new challenges and opportunities on the other side of the gate.

So go to your healers and counselors now to assist your journey or spend more time in meditation or spiritual practices now.

I know the world seems crazy now, but it is really a result of changing tides from one age to another.  We  are collectively and individually in transition and working to heal, release and let go of old tapes and conditioned programs in our heads and hearts.

On the contrary some of you are enjoying the ride into this new chapter of life.   Emotional baggage has not surfaced in any difficult way as of yet and the world’s troubles and confusions have not caught up to you yet.

But make no mistake, world craziness will accelerate soon, with important world events screaming for attention.

The Middle East will very soon erupt explosively, with emphasis on Israel, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, Iran, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia.

The political presidential landscape will get even crazier as scandals,  illegalities, corruptions, and secrets break out in the open.

Our global economy will face great challenges soon also.

At the same time protests and revolutionary energies and actions will increase exponentially.   Spritual enlightenment, synchronicites and awakenings will multiply.  People will have a much stronger sense of unity with their fellow human, as we all are motivated to change the world for the better.

The astrological reflection of this current change sits mainly with Saturn square Neptune which is good for this whole year but exact this week Friday the 17th of June.

As we have stated in previous forecasts,  Order and boundaries and status quo (Saturn) are challenged by disorder, open boundaries, confusion, chaos and change (Neptune).

We have mentioned immigration issues and redrawn state boundaries as part of this Saturn/Neptune process. And to add to this theme, later this month, Brits will be voting on staying or leaving the European Union.  That vote will greatly affect the economic stablity of Europe and beyond.

So much is changing, yet some like Donald Trump are wanting to turn back the clock  to the ’50s in America, before civil rights breakthroughs or globalism.

Do we need to stop to turn back the clock for awhile, or is it time to go further with revolutionary and evolutionary progress.

Voters in the United States will be letting us know their feelings on the matter come November.

In addition to Saturn/Neptune and Mars Retrograde, we are approaching Summer Solstice with a Full Moon joining it on June 20. We will talk more about that next week.

This week Neptune ( as it is squaring Saturn) changes directions to go retrograde on Monday the 13th.  This puts Neptune vibes in the psychic airwaves.  Neptunes is inner directed, aligned with the inner spiritual plane and rules psychic insights, insights in general,  fogginess and confusion, gentle poetic feelings, drugs, alcohol, chaos, and escapism.

If you are taking the Higher Self route of spiritual connection, it wil be best this week to let go and surrender to that which is greater, to trust the Universe, and to allow the process to play itself out without needs to control or dominate or think too much to figure it all out.

The Sun makes “minor” aspects to Uranus and Mars on Tuesday putting emphasis on independence, self expression, and empowerment.  It is time to stop being a doormat and to speak up.

Venus moves into Cancer on Friday the 17th.  It will stay in Cancer for about a month.  As it leaves Gemini, heart energies shift from light and lively to Cancerian softness and nurturance.

It is time to go deeper in your intimacies with loved ones, to open your heart and trust again.  This trust will allow you to be more vulnerable, which will open you up to greater nurturance from others.

It will also open your heart up to those who need care and concern from you, so you can give them the nurturance they need also.

Mars makes a quincunx (150 degree) angle to Uranus on Saturday the 18th. Time to break out of the box and let more assertive revolutionary energy into your consciousness and bones.  Life is changing and so are you.

Late June and July are lunching pads for new beginnings and startups.  Best now to heal your wounds and traumas as best you can, so you can have less baggage to haul around in this new Era of our lives.

And then in the 2020’s The Age of Aquarius comes into its own.

Till next week,

Leo

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday August 6 at 1 PM  EDT.  The series will continue Saturdays August 13 and 20th at 1 PM to finish up the series.   Each class will last approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.
I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world events  will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is to be paid prior to the classes.
 Recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.

 

 

Family Matters and Astrology Forecast June 21-27

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on June 20, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Sunday June 21 brings us an annual turning point.    This year Summer Solstice is on the 21st at 12:38 PM EDT.

Summer Solstice brings us to the zenith of light moments in the day.  After that darkness begins to increase every day- until Autumn Equinox when light and dark, yin and yang are equal.   After that dark yin minutes get greater than light yang minutes- until Winter Solstice when dark has reached its zenith and light begins to increase- until Spring Equinox when all is equal again but moving toward the light.

So now here in the Northern Hemisphere of Earth we get excited for the fact that nature is at its fullness and warm weather has arrived for awhile.

But you may also feel a subtle tug into your feelings and soul.  Summer Solstice brings the Sun into the sign Cancer for a month.

The sign Cancer is ruled by the Moon, and as such it is soulful and feeling oriented, concerned more with inner values than outer striving, and resonates with nurturing and being nurtured.

Society is always pushing us to live up to something, to accomplish, to meet obligations, and to make of most importance our relationship to the material world.

But there is a need in each of us to “just be”, to move with our moods, to protect ourselves from a cold often cruel world, and most especially to care for those who are more vulnerable-  like children, the elderly or disabled.

The sign Cancer is more inner directed with its caring values and values of how we treat one another.   We each need downtime, time to forget the responsibilities out in the world.  We each need time for our personal needs to be met and for more emotional intimacy.

Cancer likes close relationships, often “two peas in a pod” type relationships.  But Cancer is sensitive to rejection or abandonment and if it feels it is being treated badly it will stop trusting and go hide in its crab shell.  It will stay there and protect itself even more, until it can trust again.

Cancer also is a sign of “woman” and of Mother, and ironically this year in the USA it is Fathers Day as the Sun moves into Cancer.

Family issues often get more intense during Sun in Cancer time, so be ready for the dysfunctions to open up, for family drama, but also healthy needs to be with family members.

More and more people are leaving the traditional concept of family as we enter the Age of Aquarius.

For those people bloodline is not as important as connecting with one’s soul family, the people who we feel “at home” with.

On Monday June 22, the day after Summer Solstice, Jupiter in Leo makes an exact trine to Uranus in Aries.  This a very fiery combination that can send some into new adventures and explorations; while others will use this to help them get outside any “boxes” of limitation they find themselves in.

There may be a strong desire to get out of boredom or “same old, same old” and to end patterns of thought and behavior that keep one stuck.

The Sun in Cancer movement wants to feel safe however, so you may face an inner conflict between leaping forward and following your heart and intuition on the one hand- against a need to feel safe and cozily secure in familiar surroundings on the other hand.

Family, whatever that means for each individual, is meant to be a protected resting place where one can feel safe to “be oneself” without judgment or being mocked and shamed.

Then one can feel more able, after such nurturing, to tackle a challenging world.

But  all too often now blood family is a toxic place to be.  Some families put individual family members in rigid roles to fit family needs or to be a convenient scapegoat to load family shadows upon.  Family members compete with one another for favor, and money and material needs become of utmost importance.

Many families are merely microcosms for the society we live in, programming its family members with cultural values that are tearing our human family and Earth apart.

Families often teach that some people are better than others, that competition and winning against others is a high value to achieve.

Families are often pitted against one another and family gossip puts down people who do not live up to the family and societal judgments of how people should be.

Families often teach, as does our culture, that relationships are based on what each person can get from another.     Relationship turns into negotiation for getting one’s needs met instead of letting the love in one’s heart lead the way.

True heart connection does not need to see who is getting the short stick from a relationship and does not keep score.

Of course if you are constantly giving more than receiving there is no real two way heart connection happening.  The two way heart connection happens in love however.

Of course there are times in any relationship when individuals lose heart connection and then can fall into co-dependent ways of connecting.  But if that lasts too long the love leaves for good.

And in the greater world we project our family needs out to larger groups like nation or religion or ethnicity or race.   Our family or country or sexual orientation or race is better than your family or nation or race, etc.

And then that  becomes judgment or making of enemy or hatred to other “families”

There has been so much separation of our American family because of race lately, even as we elected an African American president.   It is as if the civil war from Lincoln’s time is back as an issue in our collective American consciousness.

And the root of this separation began with a “white” attitude that it is superior to the “black” race. That must be so as it was a required attitude for slavery.  America’s high minded value of “all created equal” met the evil value of using those who one feels are inferior for one’s own gain.

No matter where you stand on the race question in America, it is important to know that the only “immigrants” who were forced here and put into slavery are black Africans.

Though many generations have gone past since then, America has never truly consciously dealt with this horrible era in its evolution.

And some people still believe they are superior and are still filled with judgment and hate for the attitudes taken on by uppity inferiors.

Moving into an Age of Aquarius, it is essential that we see all our human members as equal members of the same Family- all different but equal and ONE.  All men and women are created equal in the eyes of God(ess) or Universe.  And this is not just about America.   We all need to KNOW we are members of the same human family, all over the world, regardless of our difference by race, nation, sexual orientation or lifestyle.  And we need to know it soon.

The storms will be getting much stronger, and we either go into survival mode and aggressively grab everything we can for “our family”,  or we come together to heal our separations and heal this Earth and our whole human family.

For now, however, get some protected nurturance as the Sun moves into Cancer.  Go inside and collect your self and heal from such a challenging spring season that has just passed.   Come together with those who you can be your self with, who you feel at home with.  Take care of your personal needs and protect yourself and loved ones from toxic energies and people.  Rest before the winds of change pick up again soon.

Till next week,

Leo

Streams Merging and Astrology Forecast June 14-20.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 13, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Many people felt a great sigh of relief when Mercury went back Direct on Thursday June 11.  People who did not know about Mercury going direct last week also stated they felt better and did not know why.

This was a very intense Mercury Retrograde period that just passed, more challenging than usual.    The Full Moon in Sagittarius square Neptune on June 2 complicated matters and intensified them.  It sent some minds and hearts into new orbits.

Many spoke of their hearts cracking open, or of being thrust into new zones of consciousness that did not connect with their usual sense of personal reality.  Some even spoke of being split inside into two different realities.

There is a sense now that something very important is shifting, that the Spring Portal that opened this year is ready for us and our new consciousness to come streaming through.

Life will never be the same again as we allow ourselves to let go of the shore and take the voyage.

The power of the river’s rushing waters will be too strong for many to hold onto the old reality.  The new reality stream and old reality stream will naturally merge together when we let go of that shore.

But for others it will be white knuckles from the firm grip of holding on.

Mercury is direct now and will be back to normal speed not long after the New Moon in Gemini.  That new moon will bring even stronger waves to motivate us to move forward.

Since the New Moon is in Gemini,  it makes sense for talk or communication to be the next step forward.  Come out of your personal closet space now and share what you know to be true for you.

By talking it out or writing it down you will make it real.   And maybe there is a part of you that does not want it to be real, as making it real will necessarily change your life.

But for some of you, maybe now that Mercury is back Direct you are sensing that this new sense of reality or direction was an illusion during Mercury Retrograde.

And so instead of swimming freely forward you may need to sit up on the shore to ponder and reflect before you choose what makes sense to you.   Mercury Retrograde always intends to shift our perceptions, so we can either change the direction we had previously chosen, or instead be more sure of what we had already chosen.

You should have a stronger sense of direction after the New Moon in Gemini.  That New Moon on Tuesday June 16 is at 10:05 AM. EDT.

The issues you need to deal with will be clearer after the 16th, but not necessarily the resolution or answers.  More thinking and especially more talking or communication may still be necessary.

This New Moon in Gemini will very closely conjunct forceful Mars, so you or others will have more energy or passion or even anger behind your communication.   Straight forward talk would be good.

Sarcasm, or very pointed remarks can put others on the defensive, so thinking how you want to say something is very important in how someone will hear you.

Also this Gemini New Moon may bring a plethora of information flooding in, causing you to feel scattered or overwhelmed.  And this can have you scattered in how you communicate, and then people will not be able to follow you very well.

So get yourself grounded and centered before you speak.  A Gemini New Moon may also bring motivation to attend or teach classes, or start some new project of communication.

These Gemini themes can last throughout this lunar cycle begun at the New Moon this week, and that cycle will last until July 15 at the Cancer New Moon.

So now as Mercury is finally  Direct, thinking and communication get clearer and you are more ready to move forward into a big new phase of life.

This summer will bring us more fast forward through our new phase of life.  Summer Solstice, which is always also the first day of the Sun in Cancer, is on Sunday June 21.  We will talk more about that next week.

On the Global scene, we are on the verge of world events that will greatly change our reality.   Just like in our personal lives, there is a split between the old reality which is playing out on the surface, and an alternative new one that is rolling right along under the surface.

Those reality streams are also soon to collide with one another, and powerful world events will erupt as a result.

On the surface there is an economy that by the numbers looks strong and vibrant.  But under the surface there are issues like Greece’s insolvency that threaten to overthrow the world economy applecart.

And simmering crises in the Middle East look like they are manageable, even if they are filled with danger, like the Islamic State or Iran and Israel.   But underneath the surface of our consciousness, there are powerful streams of new light and love from the Age of Aquarius that will soon collide with the old reality on the surface.

That will cause the power of world transformation to explode in our world.

August through October of this year 2015 will bring in a flood of world events that will blow the lid off the old paradigm.   In September, as we experience two important eclipses on September 13 and 27, it will be the most important time of all.  

So many predictions are being made ( some ridiculous) about September, even by people who are not aware of the eclipses.   That tells me that that will be a most important turning point in human affairs on Planet Earth.  The Blood Moon on September 27 seems especially important, even to biblical scholars.  That Blood Moon is actually the last of 4 Total Lunar Eclipses in a row.

But for now it is time to integrate our experiences and consciousness from the Mercury Retrograde period.

I could feel my heart wanting to break open more fully with Love around that Full Moon in Sagittarius during Mercury Retrograde.  But it also made me feel that letting in that Love to its Full strength would necessarily break down the walls of protection that hold up my own and our collective sense of reality.

But for this week, allow yourself to come back down into your self during the darkening of the Moon prior to the New Moon in Gemini.

Allow the dust to settle from the intensity and confusion of Mercury Retrograde and the Full Moon in Sagittarius.  Meditate, enjoy nature, feel your body and deeper soul.  Then after the New Moon in Gemini, you will be ready to begin to make your inner stirrings more real to you and possibly others, and to have words for it that will explain where you now find yourself.

Coming out with your individualized self is extremely important at this time i human evolution, regardless of what others think.   That means that living your life authentically will be most important to you.    Being in Truth is as important as being in Love. Together they are powerful enough to move mountains and to open the gates of the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo
