Secrets Revealed and Astrology Forecast October 22-28

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on October 21, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week October 22/23 the Sun moves into Scorpio, joining previously entered Jupiter in Scorpio.  They will be exactly conjunct one another on Thursday October 26.

That is the date we told you about last week, when the files concerning President Kennedy’s assassination are scheduled for release.  Trump this week stated that he will allow those files to be released, as he is the only one, as the USA President right now, who could stop the scheduled release.

True to the sign Scorpio, secrets are kept and kept for sometimes a long time, then eventually released in a powerful manner.  And usually when these secrets are released there is intense emotional turmoil and expression.

In this case it seems there will be much released we have not known.  And besides this Kennedy info, there is so much in our world and government that we are kept in the dark about.

The powers that be always tell “we the people” that for security reasons secrets must be kept from us.

Disclosure of information about UFO’s and extraterrestrials is also kept from us,  because “we the people” cannot be trusted with such info?

This is so against the principles of a free society which requires freedom of information.

We are not the children of the authorities, we are the citizens of this supposedly free society.

How about you and your life?  Do you hold secrets that you feel need to be expressed soon?  Are there people in your life that are holding back secrets from you?

When Jupiter makes exact conjunction with the Sun in Scorpio this Thursday the 26th, North Korea will be at another big turning point.

That Jupiter conjunct the Sun in Scorpio will be exactly conjunct North Korea’s Mars in Scorpio from its natal chart of September 8 1948, its modern founding date.

This week is a big crossroads time for North Korea, and hence for the USA. If it fires another ICBM or tests another nuclear device, it will seriously motivate Trump to act.

Hopefully he will act by making more advances toward diplomacy but that is not likely.

The Harvey Weinstein story of severely abusive behavior toward women has come out of the closet since Jupiter entered Scorpio.

In his natal chart he has Mars in Scorpio, and Pluto (the ruler of Scorpio) makes a hard square to that Mars.

That combination is male energy that is dominating, with great needs of power, and tends to ruthlessness.  Of course in a more evolved soul the power of that placement is not “power over” but instead power shared.  But with that combination of Mars in Scorpio with Pluto, one would need to be very conscious for it not to turn into serious power struggles or abuse of power.

So at this time of year now, be aware of power dynamics in your relationships, and be aware of your own or others’ abuse of power.

To run counter to the more primal energy of Scorpio,  Mars joins Venus in very civilized Libra this weekend of October 21/22.

Libra is balanced and seeks peace, at all costs sometimes.  So it will be interesting now how that all shakes out in our lives.

Do you express and assert your deeper truth (Scorpio), or do you give higher priority to keeping the peace (Libra)?

Can you do both at the same time?  Yes, if you can state your truth and be in your power in a way that someone else can “hear” and understand.  Putting a velvet glove on your fist, so to speak, can help others to see you in a more empathic way.

Have you all noticed how much the world is changing now, especially since the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo?

We have been thrust into a New Chapter of our lives, and we are trying on a New Normal as we cannot go back to what used to be considered normal.

With all the Scorpio energies beginning to come up, and more to come, we are starting to transition through the part of the New Chapter when we must make things real at a deep level in our souls.

We are beginning to climb off of the Libra fence of nicety and/or indecision.  It is time to allow for the energies of Transformation to push us out of the nest of safety, and into the passion of this New Chapter of our lives.

Of course you can bury your head in the sand of life and wait for the “storms” to pass, but being not conscious during this time will only injure the vitality or your soul.

Can you stay conscious and still not be swallowed up by disabling fear and rage? If you can that is good, but if not perhaps it is best to bury your head in that sand.

The world’s dramas now can help us to transform and evolve if we can be motivated to stand up for what we believe, in our empowerment.

Next Eclipse Season in January/February the People will speak with their principles leading the way.

The second eclipse that season will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.  That eclipse will be closely conjunct with the USA natal Moon in Aquarius at around 27 degrees of Aquarius.

Those inner principles of power to the people, social consciousness, equality, liberty, and Diversity within Unity are meant to then be expressed in a big way.

This eclipse will oppose Trump’s Ascendant and Mars in Leo, opposite also where the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo was last August.

Trump’s desires to be dominant over Congress and the people will be severely challenged then, perhaps with protests and/or impeachment.

Do you not find it interesting that a Plutocracy, with the obvious root word of Pluto; is about dominating governance by the minority of the wealthiest people in a country?

Is that not what is developing under the Trump administration.  Many people I know would tell me that has been happening for decades.  But if so, now is the time it is flexing its muscles and will be soon opposed by the will of the people with their Aquarian principles.

And of course those Aquarian principles will get stronger and stronger as we move into the Age of Aquarius, which no one can stop, no matter how it may seem sometimes.

Till next week,

Leo

Passions of Scorpio and Astrology Forecast October 23-29

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we begin to swim through deeper and darker soul waters- before we will experience an important New Moon next week.

The deeper waters will begin to open up Saturday October 22 at 7:46 PM EDT as the Sun moves into Scorpio.    

On the same day the last quarter Moon in Cancer takes us into finishing up the lunar cycle that began at the Libra New Moon of September 30.

A Libra New Moon is the first new moon of Autumn, and brings us the beauty of a metaphoric sunset.

The first part of Autumn shows us trees with vibrant colors and in many places relatively comfortable weather and temperatures.

Then after the Sun moves into Scorpio we begin to feel more deeply the darker and colder days that lead us into winter.

Scorpio is ruled by the planet Pluto, known mythologically as the guardian of the underworld.

That underworld is sometimes referred to as Hades, a place where we experience more primal passion.  Of course mainstream society and religion have demonized this instinctual place inside each of us.

Libra represents a civil way of relating.   Scorpio takes us into our deeper feelings that are more raw and real.

There is no attempt to refine our expressions with Scorpio, and instead it helps us to express our feelings that are more connected to our deeper truth.

This more primal expression can often cause emotional confrontation with others as we stop holding back what we are really feeling.

Therefore Scorpio can bring up what has been suppressed and even repressed sometimes.

Of course the longer something has been held down, the more powerful is its expression when let loose.

After the Sun goes into Scorpio this year, as the 4th quarter Moon begins, you will tend to go down deeper into your soul.

But the outer expression of the inner turmoil may wait until the Scorpio New Moon.

That Scorpio New Moon is Sunday October 30 at 1:38 PM EDT.

That Scorpio New Moon will soon be followed by Halloween/Samhain and even deeper spiritual realities will then be unearthed.

And not long after that the Election will be held on November 8.

I know it seems as if the worst nastiness has already been spit out; but with Scorpio Sun and especially New Moon in Scorpio on the way, things could get even more ugly.

Please realize that in more healthy people Scorpio represents a compassionate connection to those who suffer, an expression of deeper truth, a wide open third eye chakra, and the transformation process of death and rebirth.

But expressed in a toxic old world filled with toxic people, there is much mean spiritedness, demonizing, and obsession with getting revenge and destroying others.

For most of you this Scorpio time will allow you to express your deeper more instinctual truth and to empower yourself.

It will help you to release stuck emotions and dysfunctional patterns, and to go more deeply through the transformational process.

Perhaps it will get ugly sometimes between people, but that can bring about a catharsis followed by deeper connection between them.

Scorpio time of year can also bring each of us into what inspires our passion, and more deeply into our sexual nature too.

This week there may be a feeling of “coming down” and experiencing deeper truth inside, as we prepare and get ready for an important renewal at the Scorpio New Moon on October 30.

On the 28th/29th Mars will square Uranus, which may give you a “wake-up call” and help you to get out of stuck places and patterns.

In the greater world there could be some real surprise events or previously locked secrets opening up this week.

Soon this very intense and toxic Election season will end.

But then we face a whole new chapter of human life here in the United States, which will affect the whole world.

If Hilary Clinton is elected the system we are used to will continue, though be definitely different from Barack Obama’s government and world.

Scorpio Hilary Clinton will tend to be much more confrontational than Leo President Obama.

Gemini Donald Trump will tend to break down our feelings of well being,  and be much more unpredictable than President Obama.  You never know which Gemini twin will appear.

Either way, in the short term darker days are coming to America.  Nevertheless there is no stopping our transformation out of an old world and paradigm, as we move closer and closer to the Age of Aquarius.

In your own life do not let the world’s negativity affect your consciousness for long, or let it take you off your spiritual path.

If you need to turn off the TV or stop reading the political pages, do it.

Keeping up your meditation, and being with positive and supportive people will help you alot.

Letting go of old patterns of self deprecation or old patterns of self defeat will help.

Letting go of or spending less time with people who invalidate you will help.

Transformation and change have been accelerating over the last couple of years and time seems to be speeding by.

Therefore realize that all your recent challenges or difficulites are meaningful and meant to help you to release that which keeps you stuck and held in old patterns and belief systems.

Everything that has come into your life is preparing you for entering into a life that is more authentically aligned with your True Self; more connected to your deeper soul and its natural spiritual journey; more deeply connected to our sacred Earth and meaningful Universe; more sensitive to the varied ways of life of our human family; more aligned with the deeper Soul Source that connects All; and more awake to the reality that Truth and Love are the twin pillars of strength that govern our Universe.

Till next week,

Leo

Raising Consciousness and Astrology Forecast October 16-22

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 15, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we move closer to Scorpio time of year, intensity and primal passion are building inside our collective human souls.

The presidential election in the USA is already intense yet will get much more so.

Can you believe how low in consciousness Americans are going during this Election Season?

With so many important issues to discuss, the media and candidates are totally obsessed with sexual issues concerning Donald Trump and Bill Clinton.

Though to some extent it is good to address the women’s issues that have come out, and that are important for us as a human family;  this is more about character assassination and mean spirited attacks on one another.

It is no mere coincidence that Wikileaks is now increasing the email dirt against Clinton, while women have now decided a month before election to suddenly come out against Trump.

This is war- not an attempt to look at serious world and American issues.

As we get closer to the Sun moving into Scorpio on October 22 and a Scorpio New Moon on October 30, there are war drums beating that could potentially turn into World War III.

Russia and the USA are seriously challenging one another over Syria; while North Korea keeps testing more nuclear bombs; and forces gather to try to defeat the Islamic State in important Mosul Iraq.

If one tunes into all that or just feels deep inside the collective human unconscious, it is getting more and more apparent that something very big is about to explode in the world.

The only question in my mind is whether this will happen prior to the Election or after it.

Before the Election we have a Full Moon in forceful Aries conjuct Uranus on October 16;   aggressive Mars conjunct guardian of the underworld Pluto on October 19; Mars square Uranus on October 29; and a New Moon in Scorpio on October 30.

Any of these could be a trigger for an important world event, and at the least they suggest darker secrets to be exposed.

The Full Moon has the Sun in Libra opposing Moon conjunct Uranus in Aries at 12:23 AM October 16.

This annual Full Moon usually brings a conflict between desires to make relationship and make peace (Libra) versus a desire to be frank and assertive and thus potentially bring conflict (Aries).  Uranus conjunct the Moon in Aries suggests more weight toward impulsive forceful assertions.

In world events this brings the potential for serious conflict in the world over the next couple of weeks.

In personal lives this could be a wake-up call (Uranus) to transform old relationship patterns and to balance self empowerment (Aries) with a real listening in relationship (Libra).

Some people are very empowered already and need to be more sensitive to others.

Others are usually very accommodating of their mates or friends but tend to be rather small in asserting their own needs.

This Full Moon gives a real opportunity to strike a better balance and to change old relationship patterns that have proven not to work well.

Uranus gives the possibility to wake up outside the usual boxes of thought and to make the changes.

On Ocober 19 Mars conjuncts Pluto.  Conjunct means they share the same space in a 360 degree circle- in this case both at around 15 degrees of Capricorn.

Conjunct means they seek to bring their energies together and in this case in Capricorn. Capricorn wants to build or maintain solid structures or systems. Mars and Pluto together tend to create much potentially explosive power together. They can be ruthless when together.

This can create world conflicts through the ruthless power of the system, the state. or corporate or militay institutions.

In personal lives this can mean a powerful attempt to maintain or create controls.  Be careful this week not to get into power and control battles with others, as they could get nasty.

Instead use this Mars/Pluto aspect to make your self aware of authority or to assert your own authority.

On Saturday October 22 there is a 4th quarter Moon in Cancer as the Sun makes its annual move into Scorpio.

This may bring a feeling of being “brought down”.   Resist the temptation to get depressed, and instead use it to go deeper inside to see what is real and true for you.

Scorpio helps us to get in touch with deeper soul issues, to see inside the veils of secrecy.  It also helps us to find our passion and to honor our more primal instincts.

4th quarter Moons alert us to “wrap things up” and to prepare for the next new moon- this one to be in Scorpio on October 30.

We are in a collective transition into a whole new chapter of our lives.  The Election here in the USA is an obvious symbol that things are changing.

An important way to change is in consciousness.   If we keep trying to create enemies and keep trying to demonize others we stay locked in old consciousness.

Yes we need to create boundaries betwen what we believe and stand for, and what others believe and stand for.  But we do not need to make us the good guys, and them the bad guys.

It is a difference of opinion and lifestyle, not a reason to hate or destroy.

Till next week,

Leo

Transformational Drum Beats under the Earth and Astrology Forecast Noveber 1-7

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We enter November (Sunday) with the clocks turned back an hour, giving the impression of darker days. Also as we enter November, we are moving through the waning half of the lunar cycle, a time when things usually slow down for processing, reflecting, and preparing for the next lunar cycle, which will begin on November 11 at the Scorpio New Moon.

New Moons always begin a lunar cycle and give motivation to begin anew. Last quarter moons that are just prior to a New Moon give feeling of downward movement and can sometimes bring on temporary depression.

The time before November 11 is therefore a time to go deeper in one’s thinking, especially so as we are in Scorpio time of year.

The last quarter of the lunar cycle begins on election day November 3, with Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Leo.

Social movements in the USA recently are more toward greater equality, with less control and dominance by the wealthy and privileged- Bernie Sanders people for instance.

This however is countered by the rich and privileged putting more and more energy and Big Corporate super pac funds into keeping the status quo through status quo candidates who sold out- most of the other candidates- Democrat or Republican.

This last quarter lunar cycle from November 3- November 11 will also be a time to process all the recent challenges in your life and in the global perspective.

A New Chapter of life has certainly begun since a big portal opened during Eclipse Season this past late summer and early autumn. Yet after November 11 is when all locked doors will be opened too so we can eachmore fully begin this New Chapter of our lives.

The processing time now, as we enter the last quarter of the lunar cycle this week, will enable us to look more deeply at what is happening to our personal lives and our world.

Give your self a bigger picture look at what this New Chapter will be like. Make attitude adjustments as need be. Stay with your core values, as they will reward you in the end.

On November 11, with the New Moon in Scorpio, there will be a feeling of movement forward after reflection and mental processing the past couple of weeks.

Scorpio is a sign of intensity, depth, passion, and primal instincts.

In the greater world, whatever has been held back will begin to be expressed. Secrets previously hidden will be revealed. Primal passions will burst forward.

Events that showed up in September with the Eclipses will go to the next level of manifestation

Look at the global events that were swirling around during the Eclipses: Russia started bombing in Syria; the Palestinians and Israelis went into very dangerous confrontation with each other; the economy and stock market started to show more evidence of grave weaknesses

These issues have lost some of their heat since September, but they are still very ripe for more events to explode after November 11.

The events that happened in September at the eclipses were not just fleeting and gone forever. They tell us what is coming apart in our global lives.

The economy is held together by band-aids of government money printing; Russia in Syria puts the world into more danger for World War III, and the Palestinian/Israeli conflict promises to explode into fires no one can stop.

These world events are part of a global breakdown of an old world that does not serve the majority of its inhabitants and does not honor our Earth Mother and nature.

We have burst forth into an electronic/computer/internet age that needs to be brought back to Earth literally and figuratively. The computer age will not end, but without the balance of respect for our bodies and souls, our lives will get much worse.

That Scorpio New Moon on November 11 will also signal new beginnings for our personal lives. What was brewing for you during the eclipses will are now being  integrated into your consciousness and life.

Use whatever it is to more fully embrace this New Chapter of life, even its challenges.

You can better avoid the depression some may take on now if you honor and move with the current energies.

Scorpio is “ruled” by Guardian of the Underword Pluto, who myth has it took innocent Persephone away from her Mother Demeter aand brought her into his domain under the Earth- deep into the body and soul of the more mysterious and feared realms of consciousness. When they were done being together in his transformational domain, she was brought back up to Earth, not as innocent but more experienced and wise.

It is Samhain on October 31, same day every year as Halloween.   Veils are lifted in our consciousness, so we can enter those deeper and darker domains where spirits and frequencies of consciousness arre not usually easily accessed.

This realm is not ruled and cannot be reached by scientific methods, math, or computers.  It is world of deep mystery that has the power of transformation within it.

You can access the wisdom and images of soul there, the nurturance of a Dark Mother, and even spirits who may carry symbolic messages for you.

Can you feel the drum beat of the heart of the Earth body signifying deep change now?  Can you sense the power of this transformatation?

Are you already in the process of clearing, cleaning out, and releasing old toxins that have constricted you in your life?

We need to get out from under the weight of mounds of garbage and toxins that have held us back, but also have given us a dysfunctional sense of familiar security.

More clearing and cleaning out of the old this week, getting your self ready for the emergence of new life after November 11..

next week,

Leo

Deepening our Experience and Astrology Forecast October 25- 31

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week should bring a deepening into one’s body and soul.  Water and Earth signs are strongly represented this week.  Water and Earth together bring energies “down and in” instead of “up and out”. Together they represent Yin instead of Yang.

There is a Full Moon on Tuesday the 27th at 8:05 AM EDT.  That Full Moon has the Sun in Scorpio and the Moon in Taurus.   Scorpio is water and Taurus is Earth, both Yin signs.

Both are “fixed” signs as Scorpio is fixed water and Taurus is fixed Earth  Water is feelings, emotions, and soul.   Earth is nature, practicality, and the body.

Since Scorpio is fixed water there is a tendency to hold onto feelings and emotions.

Since Taurus is fixed earth, it tends to want to hold onto that which gives it a sense of physical security.

At a Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon, as this one is, there can be “tugs or war” between people who stubbornly hold onto their position or agenda.

Taurus does not like too much emotion or intensity, and Scorpio does not like anyone who lacks emotion or passion.

So there can be a conflict between people who represent each of those positions.

Be careful this week not to let your “buttons” get pushed or to push someone else’s buttons.   If it does happen, then it must be because emotions need to be expressed in order to clear the stale air of suppressed feelings.

All week there will be a pull downward into that which is real.  There is a strong emphasis on the signs Scorpio, Taurus, and Virgo.  That leaves little room this week for escapism or avoidance or over romantacizing.

There is a need to make real now, to go deeper to know the truth.

Finding the truth may take you down into the dark corners of your psyche.  In fact you may also be able to go even deeper than that.

Saturday the 31st brings us into Samhain, an annual energetic passage that our ancestors celebrated.

Modern pop culture calls it Halloween and in religion it is called All Saints Day.

Samhain is approximately half way between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.  It is a time when the veils between worlds are very thin.

As such one can, with meditative effort, get in touch with the spirit world and with those who have passed through death into other dimensions.

Try this through your meditation or through ceremony and ritual or even just staring into fire and making a soul intention to contact spirit.

It is easy to see why, as a result of this easier contact with the spirit world at Samhain,  tha tHalloween was created.   The more easy contact with spirits must have brought some fears of ghosts and monsters to people back in the day.

So use this time of year to let the spirit world into your consciousness. Allow the increasing darkness at this time of year to help you to go deeeper into the soul.

To foster this process we turn our clocks back overnight from October 31 to November 1.   It is time to be more inner directed, with less energy put into striving and set outer directed agendas.

Getting more in touch with mysteries, and with opening up previously closed secrets is in order now.  Also doing more introspection and delving more deeply into one’s unconscious is  in order now.

After the Full Moon on Tuesday the 27th we enter the last and waning half of the lunar cycle.  The light of the Moon will begin to dim, prompting us even more to go deeper.

It may be helpful at this time of year to be able to process your feelings with someone.  That will help you to gain objective perspective.  Do your best to not allow yourself to get into dark dramas inside your self or with others.

There is still alot to process, sort through and make sense of from all the storms of the eclipse season.

After the New Moon in Scorpio on November 11, it will be time to get more fully immersed in the new chapter of your life.

In the greater world, the eclipses took us into a faltering economy and stock market; major upheaval in Jerusalem and elsewhere in Palestine and Israel; Russia beginning to bomb in Syria; and China and the USA daring each other in waters near the South China Sea.

For now most of these issues have settled down in intensity. But the fact that they all erupted during the Eclipses in September strongly suggests that these matters are important ones that will come back to haunt us- excuse the pun.

The transformation of our old world and its institutions will continue.   There will be much more powerful changes on the way. The events during the recent Eclipse Season “set the table” for what is to come.

So it is likely that around and after the New Moon in Scorpio, world events will intensify again, especially those that are connected to the events that erupted in September.

In your own life, you continue to be ripe for awakenings, deeper realizations, and generally big breakthroughs into new lands of consciousness.  We are each evolving, through personal transformation, into more authentic soul beings.  As we transform we become more attuned to the energies and realities of the Age of Aquarius.

These breakthroughs also help us to shed the weight of EGO, the part of each of us that has allegiance to needs to dominate and control reality in service to the laws of separation and chance.   As we trust more, we let go to our soul self, our “higher self”, the part of us  that is connected to the Universe, nature, and that which connects everything and everyone together with meaning.

We give allegiance to the flags of Love and Truth and the birthing of a New World of stewardship of our Earth, its creatures, and our human family.   We can sense more and more the tone and frequency of a world of Diversity and distinct Individuality connected to the Unity of greater Community.

Till next week,

Leo

Awaiting the Passion and Astrology Forecast October 18-24

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 17, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving through the last days of Libra this week and getting ready for the Sun to move into Scorpio this coming Friday, October 23.

We are on a kind of plateau now, assessing and still processing from all the tumult from the recent Eclipse Season.

New and powerful energies stormed through an open Portal during Eclipse Season.

It may be difficult now to know where we stand.  The past has been uprooted, but its familiarity still holds our attention and may make us nostalgic for the good old days.  But maybe those days were not really so good.

And with the Portal’s streaming of new energies that have not been fully processed, we may not know exactly where we are going or maybe not even knowing who we are now.

But if you are not too anxious to push your self forward, you may gain some real benefits from the current time period.

This Libra time period brings us much beauty in nature now, with fall colors glowing in the Sun’s rays much of the time here in the Northern Hemisphere.

Libra also brings balance and some peace, much needed since the recent energetic storms in our lives.

But of course that balance and peace can feel boring to some who are ready to burst forward with more passion in their lives.

And for better and worse Scorpio energies will bring forth more passions soon.

Right now besides the Libra placements of the Sun and Mercury, we are also experiencing a lot of Virgo planetary movements.  Venus, Mars, and Jupiter are all in Virgo- putting much influence on physical details and desires to “get it just right”.

Making things more simple and being more humble are virtues of Virgo.  Being of service to others instead of one’s ego is another virue of Virgo.

There may also be much need to analyze things to death, and to get rather obsessed with certain thoughts and agendas.

Do your best to not worry too much now or get too anxious.   Meditation, music, and nature are great antidotes to anxiety and worry.

Yes it can be rather easy to get depressed now, especially as we see darker days and feel colder temperatures; but look at the bigger picture too.

You are truly now in a new chapter of your life. Perhaps it is not totally known what that chapter will be like or what it will bring, but you can know that whatever is on its way (both personally and globally) is what is needed to help us to evolve and adjust to the New World that is bursting at the seams of life to manifest itself.

In the political arena we can see the old ways fighting to hold on through certain candidates.  And we can see the New Age wanting to show itself through other candidates.

Bernie Sanders holds some of what the Age of Aquarius will demand of us. He speaks to greater equality for all, a transformed economic system that does not continue power and privilege to the few while so many others struggle to survive.

And his Sun in Virgo self was humble and without ego in defending Hillary Clinton from much scrutiny in her email controversy at the debate this last week.

The old economic system is not working anymore, as I see so many families where both parents need to work to make ends meet, and even then they still struggle to have satisfying lives that are meaningful to them.  Kids cannot afford college and medical costs are outrageous.

The children have largely inherited a society where materialism and mundane concerns are so highly valued, and where higher and deeper values are sometimes difficult to find in the mainstream.

Movies and TV shows are largely dark, or blatently sexual or violent.   Spiritual values, values of human decency, integrity, kindness, and genuine caring are not as easy to find in the mainstream of society.

Look at the political process.  Billions and Billions of dollars are spent to promote candidates, largely used to create an advertiser’s polished image of a candidate or to demonize an opponent.

Media is corporate owned and either is biased to certain candidates or promotes those who will bring in more viewers and advertising revenues to the station.

The news mainly is about the “horse race” of the elections, winning and losing and polls.  So little news now is about issues that we need to address in order to make our world better, or even news that makes us think, question, or challenge the current prevailing viewpoints or paradigm.

We are fortunate however, to have the internet and social media, as they give us alternative viewpoints and news that cannot be found on mainstream media.

The pleasant plateau of Libra will begin to crack as the Sun moves into Scorpio this Friday at 1:47 PM EDT.  Passions will begin to simmer, getting ready to explode after November 11 at the New Moon in Scorpio.

After that the conflicts in the Middle East and the global economy will be sparked into more intensity, change and transformation.

In our personal lives there will be more passion rising after the Sun goes into Scorpio this coming Friday.  And then after the New Moon in Scorpio on November 11, it will be time to speak your Truth, to go after that which gives you passion, to get in better touch with your primal self, the self that gives you the gut instinct on what is right and wrong for you, and what people feel right to you and what people feel wrong for you.

Scorpio is a “black or white” sign, not so connected to the nuances, subtleties and gray areas of issues.  It has “rulership” of our third eye’s ability to delve deeply into Truth, and to see the deeper motivations of others.

As the Sun moves into Scorpio this Friday the 23rd, allow yourself to deepen your experience, to sink into your deeper soul and your body.  

Pluto is the “ruler” of Scorpio and the Guardian of the Underworld.   It seeks to take us deeper than superficial outer appearances, and to bring us to what is “real”. It takes us into the Dark Mother, the part of the Mother that knows suffering and pain, and wants to hold us closely to her breast and to comfort us during our dark nights of the soul.

As is true for Scorpio and Pluto, often after the dark night there is a renewal and even a feeling of rebirth back into the light.

Transformation occurs as old patterns and energies are released and a new day dawns.

We await the world’s transformation.

Talk with you next week,

Leo

Changing Winds of Mercury Retrograde, Sun in Scorpio and Astrology Forecast October 20-26

We have passed through the first of two eclipses this Autumn Eclipse Season.     Intensity has dissipated for now, but the greatest intensity of this Autumn Eclipse Season is still on the way.

Leading up to the first eclipse, there was a building of intensity issues with the economy and in the Middle East.

In the USA there was a government shutdown and conflicts and fears triggered concerning the raising of the debt ceiling.    Our country is in deep trouble politically and financially, yet just before the eclipse an agreement was made to open the government back up again and to raise the debt ceiling.

Of course everyone knows that this agreement was no real agreement on anything of substance. It was only a temporary reprieve until the country and its “leaders” have to get down into the real issues that need resolution.    There is a wide disparity between the democrats and republicans as to how they each envision what it takes to build a healthy economy.

We are in for great turmoil and economic down slide before too long.  Important issues cannot be put off much longer.  We will likely be dealing with graver economic troubles as we get further into the Autumn Eclipse Season.    Mercury is going Retrograde in Scorpio this Monday the 21st; then Uranus exactly squares Pluto on November 1; then there is a most powerful Hybrid Total Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on November 3.    And finishing things off, Comet Ison will likely be affecting us in Late November and early December.

Besides the economy, the Middle East also is still a focal point concerning transformation into the Age of Aquarius.    It is true that a temporary resolution was found for Syria that avoided a bombing of the country, and true the USA and Iran are showing signs they want to work things out between them.  But a war still rages in Syria, and animosities in the Middle East are still strong.  Israel is not happy with the agreements; Egypt is still very volatile; Saudi Arabia is also not happy with the agreements; and Al Queda is a very real threat still.

I expect both economic and Middle East issues to resurface this autumn, with a potential for crisis.  No matter what does or does not happen this autumn, the next 9 months or so, with the focal point being April 2014, we can expect many challenges, powerful world events, awakenings and breakthroughs in all our lives.

This coming week brings us Mercury going Retrograde and the Sun moving into Scorpio.  The changing winds this week are shape shifting our minds and reality into deeper and darker shades.

Mercury goes Retrograde in Scorpio this Monday October 21 at 6:29 AM EDT.  It will stay in Retrograde until November 10.  During this time period our minds will change how we perceive our lives and reality.  Just as we think we know what we are seeing and what directions we are going in, there may be a pull to pause and rethink.

It is best to navigate Mercury Retrograde by letting go of the need to “figure it out”.    Take more time to reflect or meditate, to use your imagination, to be more intuitive, to go deeper into your mind or soul, and to allow process to work its way through your life.

Trying to hard to come up with a bottom line answer may be elusive at times, so trust letting life unfold before making any ultimate decisions on important matters.  This shifting of the mental tides is why it is usually best to wait till Mercury goes back direct before making big decisions or signing important contracts. You may believe you are fine to go ahead with something important, but it is best, if at all positive, to let the process of Mercury Retrograde unfold and pass through.

Sometimes you have no choice but to decide or act on a given issue during  Mercury Retrograde, in which case do not worry about taking the wrong action, as the timing has been out of your control and hence all can be considered “meant to be”.

People from the past also often come back to us during Mercury Retrograde, either in the flesh or in dreams or waking memory.  Their “return” signifies issues that are currently swirling in our lives that need reminders of past patterns that can be linked to the current issues.

Sometimes Mercury Retrograde time periods feel like being dropped into a Twilight Zone in our minds, a shadowy journey through ghosts of the past meeting us in our present situations.

So if you are not holding on too tightly to anything in your mind, that is helpful during Mercury Retrograde. But keep in mind that this is not a time period of changing how you act.   If you have decided, for instance, to move out of your current home or change jobs, DO NOT during Mercury Retrograde make up your mind for certain to change course and instead stay in your job or home.  And do not act on it.

Instead let the whole retrograde time period play out and even wait a week or so afterward before finally deciding or acting out.   The retrograde period may be meant to have you question your direction in life, but not NECESSARILY to actually change directions.

So it is important to not impulsively do anything for awhile.    Let things play out as the winds may be shifting more than once over the next few weeks.

On Wednesday October 23 at 2:10 AM EDT the Sun moves into intense and passionate Scorpio.    The energies are shifting from light and balanced to focused and intense.

People will begin to want to engage on deeper issues, no longer able to stay away from what has previously been swept under the rug.    If you have held back your opinion or your needs, it will be easier for someone to push your buttons and get you aroused or upset.

Speaking of aroused, as we get more “real”and pulled to “get down”during Sun in Scorpio time, we also may feel more stirrings for sexual encounters.    It will be more difficult to stay away from your instincts and passions.

In fact trusting your core instincts is important during Scorpio times.   All of these Scorpio issues will begin to surface after the Sun moves into Scorpio this Wednesday October 23, but will be so much more powerful and explosive at and after the Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on November 3.  If you are able to hold back the tide of powerful emotions before then, it will be most difficult to damn up those emotions then.

A hardcore Scorpio lesson is to not wait too long before expressing what bothers you.   Use a safety valve to let out some of those emotions from time to time, as bottling them up creates monstrous emotions that can be quite “ugly” when unleashed later.   Don’t stew in rage or jealousy  or shame too long.   Express and release before the emotions get too toxic from repression.  Bottling them up also can cause physical and emotional problems.

In the greater world expect leaders and nations to be more real with one another.   Civil diplomacy will be greatly challenged.  Harsher words will be spoken.  As we get closer and closer to the Total Solar Eclipse, intensity will greatly increase again, even greater than before the Lunar Eclipse of last week.

In your personal healing it will be a good time coming up, as Scorpio energies intensify, to face your inner shadows, express and release that which is ready to go.  Do not hold onto patterns of thought or behavior that keep you trapped.    I know it can be difficult to release even the most toxic patterns or people from your life. They feel secure in their familiarity, even if they are destructive to your heart, mind and soul.

You will get great assistance over the next month or so to “look these patterns in the eye” and then release and heal.  And then you can be liberated and ready to move on.

See you next week,

Leo
