The Yod “finger of god” formation with the USA Mars was exact Saturday morning April 14 at 5:58 AM EDT when Jupiter was sextile with Pluto.

8 or 9 hours prior to that formation France, USA, and Britain starting dropping bombs on Syria.   As we have stated before, that Yod formation brings with it a turning point for military affairs in the USA.

The finger has pointed toward military invasion and that does not bode well for peace in the Middle East.

The Middle East is where the first known civilizations were born: in Sumeria, Egypt, Babylonia.

And that  is where we need the healing now on our way to the New Communities of the Age of Aquarius.

We must purge ourselves of old “eye for an eye” “dog eat dog” mentality. That old paradigm has brought us Weapons of Mass Destruction including chemical weapons, but also nuclear weapons, which wiped out at least 200,000 Japanese at the end of WWII.

It is a Paradigm which must end, and that paradigm is not embodied by just one man or one country.  And using violence to stop violence is so ridiculous it does not need explanation.

So now after this Yod, we have another powerful turning point on Sunday April 15.  That day there is a New Moon in Aries which is closely conjunct Uranus and more widely square Pluto in Capricorn. 

This a launching pad for the New Chapter of life, propelling us much further forward over land we will not see again.

We have been releasing old stories and tapes in our minds and souls, and said releasing has been super deep and rapid at times.

Now we move forward whether we are ready or not.  Do you want to truly move into a new world for your consciousness and self, or do you want to be held back by heavy baggage that will stop you from moving on.

That does mean every shred of baggage must be released now, but it does mean making a strong and deep commitment to the New Chapter with no turning back to be in the “old normal” of the Old Chapter.

You can no longer go back to “normal”.

In the greater world collective we are all a part of, changes have been happening so rapidly it is difficult to hold steady sometimes.  And that will not stop any time soon.

We are in the middle of great world transformation, and we cannot make anything great again, like America,  as it was in the past.

We are creating a New America and New World, and we are getting clear messages now of what needs to end and be released.

And of course there is much resistance from the guardians of the old world, people who have held privilege in that old paradigm.  Those days are gone now, but many hold on with life support systems that barely keep their souls alive.

So the Portal opens on April 15 with the New Moon in Aries in aspect to 2 powerful transformational planets: Uranus and Pluto. That New Moon is at 9:57 PM EDT

But even earlier on the 15th, at 5:21 AM EDT, Mercury turns toward more clarity as it goes Direct again.

So this weekend is a weekend of transition, an important transition.

We begin to leave the darkness and enter more light at the Moon’s sliver of light on the 16th or 17th.  And Mercury will not get back to speed and full clarity for at least another week.

But you can feel the shift now, and yet many events will not show for another month or two.

Then in July/August another Eclipse Season and accelerated transformation again.

But this week is the shift with the Grand Opening on Sunday.

Then on the 17th/18th, Saturn changes directions from Direct to Retrograde.  Its gravitational pull will be stronger, and we should experience the signs that show us there is no room for evasion or escape.  The path is ready for us to walk down.

Saturn can feel like fate when it is strong as it is now, and there may be a sense that some things are meant to happen now, and some things are meant to end now.

But since Saturn is starting to go retrograde now, until September 6 when it goes back Direct, some endings may take awhile to be sure of.  

Around the same time on the 18th, the Sun will conjunct Uranus exactly, triggering the forward movement of the New Moon in Aries that just happened.

Sun conjunct Uranus breaks us out of whatever boxes we are stuck in and liberates us.

It shows rapid change for moving forward.   So we have the seemingly mixed messages of a Saturn stop sign and a Uranus go sign.

So use Saturn to stop whatever or whoever keeps you chained to the past and the baggage of old ways.  The most likely culprit of old ways is inside your own self.

And at the same time take a leap off the Uranus bridge into greater freedom and new horizons.  It is time to be true to your authentic self and move forward with utmost integrity.

On the 19th another shift occurs as the Sun moves into fixed earth Taurus for a month.  Some of the recent intensity will rest into a more solid place.

You can begin to make more practical sense of what has been happening.  You can also begin to manifest what has previously just been an idea.  New beginnings can be more stabilized and strongly set in a real way.

Most importantly now, do not be mesmerized into believing the old stories of monster dictators and evil countries with weapons of mass destruction who must be destroyed to save the world. Remember Saddam and Iraq?

This is what has been used against the masses for centuries to keep the herd under  control by contrived patriotism.

Also be aware of ‘wag the dog” calls for patriotism, so the herd can be distracted from the sins of their leaders. As the Mueller investigation intensifies, distractions are more likely.

It is certainly not uncommon for leaders to distract through conflicts and wars.  This has happened time and again through the centuries.

If you are drawn into those old dramas, it will keep you out of the new paradigm of love and truth that is setting us free.

Do your best not to despair no matter what happens.  All happening with greater meaning as we are shifting and transforming our consciousness into the New Paradigm.

Fear will try to keep you chained in the old consciousness and old ways. Love is knowing all is happening for a reason, and to challenge us to get more certain with our new self and new world.

The transformational process often takes us through dark passages before we awake in the renewed light.  Faith will help your passage, as it will keep even a faint night light on during our dark nights of the soul.

And now the light of a new day dawns with the New Moon in Aries. Yes there are still dark shadow clouds of old ways that may be hovering, but we are nevertheless now ready to move forward!!

Being True to Your Self and Destiny and Astrology Forecast April 10-16

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on April 9, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We passed through the doorway into a new era at the Aries New Moon.    For some the process has not been easy.

Often when we move into something new there is an Initiation period that puts “devils at our doorway”.

Our minds go over the past, regrets and grief, doubts and guilt.  Nevertheless it is truly time to move forward now, so letting go of these “demons” in our mind is essential.

But with Mars going Retrograde on April 17 and Mercury going Retrograde on April 28 you may not feel fully activated and clear about your new world until June- or in some cases July.

For some the outer practical world has changed little, but they can feel the changes inside. You may be involved in the same habits as usual, but you do not feel safe and secure inside yourself.   Reaching inside for “normal” is not easy anymore, because the old normal from the old era is gone.  And there is no “new normal” that can be felt yet.

So we may have to push through the discomfort now and move forward anyway.

With this change into a new era there are feelings of getting older. And look around at how the kids from yesterday are adults now. Millenials are having an important imprint on our world in big ways now.

They are the first young generation in some time that feels they can change the world.

They vote for Bernie Sanders because they believe the economic structure that rules this world is unfair.  They believe their future is rocky as a result of the inequities.

And this current election process for President of the USA is so different from anything in my lifetime.  It truly makes me feel like the world is not what it used to be.

And if you feel that the world looks worse not better, remember that during this evolutionary process there will be energies that seek to slow us down and stay in the past.

The conflict now is beween energies of change and transformation, which are generally more chaotic, against efforts to dominate and control and keep the status quo.

That process is about to intensify.  And as security is threatened ( through riots, terror attacks, etc.), more and more people will welcome attempts to bring order to the world.

And that is when there is a big problem. A dramatic comparison is the ’30s and ’40s when fascism got stronger in the face of a more chaotic world.

But remember that fascism was defeated and progress forward ensued.   Now as European cultures are feeling invaded more and more, it is understandble how they want to put a lid on immigration.  They feel their culture is being compromised. And they fear terrorism from new arrivals.

Yet progress forward into a new world means we learn to mix with other cultures and ways of living-  Diversity within Unity. It promises to be a difficult transition- here in the USA also.

This coming week starts with Sun in Aries conjunct Uranus late Saturday the 9th.   This aspect will bring strong desire to break outside the box of our minds and lives.

There is a feeling to be liberated from that which holds us back.  This aspect also suggests that we stand up tall and empowered in our authentic truth.  It is time to stand up for your self and be true to your Self.

Being true to oneself is not always appreciated in society or families that want everyone to wear the same uniform.  One is made to feel selfish or self centered.

But if you are made a certain way by the Godforce, it is heretical in effect to not honor your Self.  Your destiny is dependent on you honoring your authentic Self, as you have a purpose beyond being selfless and unselfish.    Keeping you away from your Self is a way to control you and make you another robot in society.

Later this week, actually at the beginning of next week, Mars goes from Direct to Retrograde in Sagittarius.  The date of the beginning of Mars Retrograde is April 17.  It will stay Retrograde until June 29.

Mars Retrograde is a time to get more deeply in touch with one’s will and one’s assertiveness.

You will be able to take that time while Mars is Retrograde to dig deep inside your self to know what it is you want now, what you desire for your life.

You may seriously question what you have chosen in the past and the direction you have chosen now.

But remember that during Mars Retrograde it is not a good time to make any rash decisions or to do anything impulsive.

Even if it feels totally right to change directions, please wait until Mars goes back Direct before changing course. I have seen so many times that when it goes back Direct the person goes back to what they originally intended. The purpose of the questioning was to have a surety.  Yet I have also seen people truly become sure their original choice was wrong after Mars goes back direct again.  So just wait if you can.

We will discuss more about Mars Retrograde next week.

Below is more information on the webinar I am offering:

Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday June 4 at 1 PM  EDT.  At this point I am leaning toward Saturdays June 18 and June 25 at 1 PM to finish up the series. The second and third dates are not set in stone yet.   Each class will last approximately 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 evetns 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  Fee is to be paid prior to the classes.
Audio recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.
Till next week,
