Eclipse Season Begins and Astrology Forecast June 16-22.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

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.

Rushing River of Change and Astrology Forecast June 9-15.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 8, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week on Sunday/Monday the Moon in Virgo makes a square with the Sun in Gemini.  This makes for a half Moon lit up in the Sky, beginning the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle.  That cycle began on June 3 at the New Moon in Gemini.

Of course this Gemini lunar cycle shows us the importance of communication, yet also shows us the importance of having an open mind that is filled more with questions than answers.

So in your personal life it is aligned now to open your mind up to more possibilities and ideas, instead of closed minded surety of your opinion and ways.

It is also fortuitous now to be present and to make a strong effort to be present in relationships as a true listener.

As a couples’s counselor, I sometimes witness people who believe that if their intentions are good they have done no wrong in what they say or do to others.

Not true! It is most important to truly be aware of how a person will receive what you are communicating. That is one reason that it is important to ask questions so you know where the other person stands in their emotions and thoughts.

Most people in relationship get really concentrated in defending their position and in “winning” the argument.

Really healthy relationships have each person in the relationship having empathy for what the other person believes or feels.  This does not mean sacrificing your needs or opinions to keep the other person happy.

You can be solid in being true to yourself, while at the same time having a true understanding of the other person, their needs and desires.

When each person honors their own self and sovereignty , they are in a potentially healthy position to honor and respect the other person too.  Win/Win is the goal which can be attained most always in most situations.

As the second quarter Moon in Virgo passes through late this weekend, there is the potential for nervous energy, anxiety, and obsessive thinking.   Both Virgo and Gemini are ruled by the planet Mercury.  Mercury operates in the brain/mind and through the nervous system and spine.

Yes it is a prime time for analyzing, logical thought, and information gathering and expressing.   But I am pretty sure you do not want to be in mental overload or obsessive thought, pushing for answers and solutions.

Sunday/Monday, while the Moon is in Virgo, there is an aspect that will offset the monkey mind.

Neptune in Pisces will be in a challenging square to that Sun in Gemini and Moon in Virgo.  Neptune, mythic god of the ocean, does not do well with left brain needs to mentally “figure it out”.

Instead it seeks and expresses the more flowing energies of music, metaphor, art, meditation and connection with everyone and everything. It is best to surrender to the “Kingdom Within” when Neptune is strong.

So it is best now, with the left brain and right brain in battle with one another, to allow the process to unfold without much stress from pushing an agenda, or needing to be right.

Late in the week Mars makes several aspects that should give us a preview of coming attractions.  Mars in Cancer this week trines Neptune, opposes Saturn and gets closer (next week) to an opposition to Pluto.

And all this is connected to where Saturn and Pluto will be for their January 2020 conjunction with one another as another Eclipse Season rolls in.

That is an important time period for our human family, and perhaps some clues from the Universe will soon show us what is coming to our personal and collective lives. Look for the symbols and their messages and synchronicities.  What wants to die and what needs to be born?

From this Summer Eclipse Season that begins at the Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 17, to the Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020; there will be important events, breakthroughs, liberations, revelations and enlightenments.  There will also be disillusions, heartaches, and life challenges.

As a human family we are moving back to, and forward to the purity of the Universe with its pillars of Love and Truth. When each of us is mainly connected to Love and Truth, all else will eventually fall into place.

Look at our world now-  false news is everywhere. It can be really difficult to sift through all the information and opinion to find truth.

And look at the status of love shown out in the world.  Relationships are dominated by struggles for power and control, and negotiating for getting what one wants.  Love brings grace with it and desires for win/win.  Without sufficient Love, we bargain for what we want all the time, and pretty consistently look for wins at the expense of the losers.

This is fine in sports or other contests, but is it right, healthy and satisfying for the rest of our lives too?

Saturn/Pluto is close now to conjunction (only 3 degrees apart) and will stay close during this approaching Summer 2019 Eclipse Season.

In January 2020 they will be exactly conjunct at 22+ degrees of Capricorn- one day after the Cancer Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 20 degrees Capricorn/Cancer- so close to Saturn/Pluto. And Uranus changes direction to Direct then also.

All that is why we are presenting a class and talk on Saturn/Pluto, which will include the eclipses. Class is on Saturday June 22 at noon and lasting till 4:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time. We will be deeply discussing world affairs, the Presidential race and potential impeachment, and most importantly the changes of  consciousness and lifestyles needed to adapt to the Age of Aquarius. In that process we will look at individual charts also to find where the Eclipses and Saturn/Pluto reside in your life and chart.

How might that affect your life? We still have some openings in the class. Write me at soulus@aol.com for more info and to sign up to attend.

This year’s Summer Eclipse Season rapidly approaches now. The Full Moon on the 17th brings the first strong winds of change. The 21st brings in Summer Solstice with a strong Neptune changing directions. Then July 2 brings us the first eclipse: A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer that also shows us Saturn and Pluto closing in on one another.

Keep an eye out for world events that will open the portals for new light pouring through for our consciousness and lives.

Be open to change in your own life too.  This time period resembles the ’60s and ’70s, when change was overwhelming at times. But it felt so good to have the old status-quo corruptions, injustices, and power abuses challenged and  transformed.

And now we experience the next great wave of transformation. Let go of the shore and allow the river of evolutionary change take you, and bring you to a world of personal purpose and meaning.

Till next week,

Leo

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.

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

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
