Pluto Releasing the Old and Astrology Forecast April 22-28

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This past week we entered a whole New Chapter of both our collective  and personal lives.

That does not mean that it has been or will be smooth sailing now. In fact for many people there were already obstacles to work through after that New Moon in Aries last week.

Gravity ruling, “stop sign” Saturn was especially strong last week too. And though Mercury went Direct on the same day as the New Moon in Aries, for many people full clarity has not been found yet.

It takes Mercury several days after it has gone Direct to return to its usual speed, and during that time the fog may just slowly lift from our view ahead.

Make no mistake however, we have turned a corner, and are now moving forward in a new phase of life.

There is some purging to be done now, however, as Pluto has been slowing down in order to go Retrograde on Sunday April 22.

So we have been experiencing Pluto’s energy the last couple of days and will continue  to do so much of this coming week.

Pluto is a very passionate and intense ruler of the underworld, and as such brings us down into the subconscious so we can be more more conscious of what is needing to be experienced and hopefully released.

If you are drawn this week to look at the past, past events, and past patterns of thought and behavior, it is happening so you can release, let go of what is not in alignment in this New Chapter.

You do not need anymore the same old inner stories that have become heavy baggage in your consciousness and life.

So use this time now to let go of your grip on that which is weighing you down psychologically, emotionally, spiritually and/or physically.

We will in late Spring be moving much more rapidly through this New Chapter, which is in essence a new frequency and dimension in our consciousness.

But for this week, Pluto changes directions Sunday the 22nd, and then on Thursday the 26th Mars collides in conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn.  This is potentially a very intense and powerful meeting between these two planets.

And approximately 3 days before that Mars in Capricorn sextiles Jupiter in Scorpio.

Those two planetary events trigger the Jupiter sextile Pluto aspect of April 14, which formed a Yod or “finger of god” with the USA natal Mars. 

Less than a day before that Yod, Syria was bombed by western nations, which points the finger to potential war in the Middle East.

But on the contrary, peace ostensibly looks more promising in Korea, as North Korea made some big compromises prior to its coming meetings with South Korea and the USA.

This week North Korean and South Korean leaders meet in a summit on April 27.  With the triggering of the Yod this week, we will get a better sense of where the finger is pointing on the Korean Peninsula- toward or away from USA conflict.

Of course the issue of gun  ownership, and the issue of police killings of black men are also part of this turning point around the USA Mars in the “finger of god” alignment now. Pay close attention to what direction all these issues are turning toward this week.

In personal lives these Plutonian interactions will tend to bring up old stories and patterns, and could also bring up more volatile emotions, especially between people in relationships.

Please do your best to know these events are happening in order to help to purge what needs to be let go. Perhaps you may feel you are being taken back to old stuff you thought had been resolved or released already.

But what is coming up is not you going backwards, it is instead an opportunity for a deeper cleaning to occur inside your mind and soul.

Also the intensity may be rising in order to help you make transformational breakthroughs that are important on your path through this new phase of life.

The old energies, stories and patterns want to be transformed into new consciousness and ways, and you can be proactive in the process if you stay conscious and aware.

Is it not totally apparent now how much everything is shifting, changing, and transforming? It is beginning to feel like the ’60s and ’70s may have been mild in comparison.

This current wave of change is not for the opportunity to put bandages on old issues so we can later go back into the same old dysfunctional ways.

Our world is transforming in ways we cannot completely comprehend yet. And each of our lives is transforming as part of that process.

Relationships especially may be rocky now, as we navigate balancing our rapid individual growth with trying to stay connected in our relationships.

It may not be totally apparent how to achieve that balance or sometimes even to know whether the relationship will last.

Will the New Chapter keep you together or will it need to bring you on separate paths?

Some of you have already been given some indication which way that is turning now, but others need more time to be able to feel more certain.

This week has some volatility and releasing necessary, but also with the Taurus influence there is a firming up of what has previously begun.

Aries is a force for moving forward, like buds coming through the branches in springtime.

Yet Taurus, where the Sun and Venus are now, stabilizes and allows to blossom what has begun.  So for the most part the month of May will stabilize, manifest, and make more solid.

Then in June, with the energies of Gemini strong, we move faster forward through our New Chapter.  Events will pour much faster through that portal that was opened at the Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus on April 15.

That was a turning point weekend for us individually and globally.

In May/June we will have a much better sense of where the Trump investigations are going. We will also know much more where the Middle East is going and where the Korean situation is going. There are many important events already scheduled for those months for those issues.

This week also has some lighter energy coming in as Venus leaves Taurus and enters Gemini on Tuesday the 24th. It will stay in Gemini until May 19.

Venus in Gemini brings with it light social interaction, more mental agility in relating, a desire for more talking and communicating, and generally also more flirting and light teasing.

That should lighten the focused intensity this week that will also be present at the usually profound Full Moon experience on Sunday April 29. It is a Scorpio Full Moon which is also called the Wesak Full Moon, often related to the birth of Buddha and Buddha light rays coming through our human experience.

Contact Deborah Tallarico at moonsoul9@aol.com for more info on joining the online global ceremony at the Spiritual Renaissance Center for that Wesak Full Moon.

We will write more about that Scorpio Wesak Full Moon next week.

Always keep in mind that the transformation we are experiencing, as challenging as that  is sometimes, is bringing us into the consciousness and ways of the Age of Aquarius.

This New Chapter we have entered is an important vehicle in time that is moving us more strongly into the new dimensions and frequencies of that New Age.

Till next week,

Leo

Time to Move Forward and Astrology Forecast April 15-21.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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!!

Till next week,

Leo

Getting Off the Fence, and Astrology Forecast April 16-23.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 15, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Venus is now Direct after having been retrograde since March 4th this year.

During Venus Retrograde periods we rewind our hearts to remember earlier times in our lives and to get in deeper connection with our hearts.

What did you learn during Venus Retrograde about what is in your heart?  Did you learn more about your current relationships, what state they are in, and what needs to be done with them.

This is not only meant to be about “romantic” relationships, but also perhaps about friends, family, work relationships, etc.

Did you learn more about what is in your heart and what and whom you truly love? Even if you did not think about that during the Retrograde period, it is good to begin to think and feel about that now.

Did you meet any new people during Venus Retrograde?  How do you feel in your heart about them?  Does it look like they will continue to be in your life?

Did you get more clear about current relationships and what patterns you want to transform?

Are there any relationships that ended during Venus Retrograde or that you need to think about ending now?

Did any people from the past come back into your life through dreams, strong memories, or in person?    Do those relationships have any bearing on how you look at a current relationship?

Do you feel excited about any new or revived relationships?  Do you feel sad about any current or past relationships?

Venus also has some rulership, through Taurus, of our bodies, our homes, our land and resources.

Are there any changes that happened or will soon happen around your body, home, land, or resources?

It is good to let Venus be Direct for a week or so before jumping to any relationship conclusions. Clarity starts now and will grow over the next week or so.

Of course to complicate matters Mercury is now Retrograde and will not go Direct until May 3rd.

So there is some potential mental rewind going on now, some changing of perceptions, and perhaps thinking of changing decisions or life direction.

Do your best to let the Venus Direct process naturally unfold, until you get crystal clear about the matter before taking action. Don’t force your heart or mind to get clear before it is time.

This last week world relationships were rather strained and have gotten to a very dangerous point.

The USA bombed Syria because it says Syria used chemical weapons on its own people. Use your own judgment about the veracity of that claim.

The USA also dropped the biggest bomb ever used, except for a nuclear weapon, on tunnels in Afghanistan.  That bomb also killed a hundred or so people, said to be Islamic State people.

And North Korea and the United States are macho posturing with one another now. That is a most dangerous situation.

We could be moving toward a world war, with August being a most important turning point on this issue.  Hopefully we can reverse this current trajectory.

My friend David Lonebear Sanipass has said that April 15 is an important day in the Cosmos and for our world.  All these dangerous situations are revolving around that date, which must be some kind of turning point.

He and I had a video conversation with one another today the 15th of April.  I will put that up on youtube early this coming week, and will let you know with a link on an update of this week’s blog/forecast. So come back to this week’s forecast and you will be able to access it.

I do talk about this coming August on the video.

That will be an important month with 2 eclipses, the second one being especially important.

That will be a Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21. Its path will be across the USA from Oregon to the Carolinas.  It is the first Total Eclipse to move entirely across the USA since June of 1918.

This eclipse in August will be almost exactly, to the degree, conjunct planetary positions of birth charts of Syria (nodes), North Korea (Saturn), and Israel (Mars). I explain more on the video and will explain more in writing closer to the event.

That Eclipse will also be conjunct Donald Trump’s natal Mars in Leo and directly opposite the USA Moon in Aquarius.

There are other aspects that month that trigger the USA Mars and Pluto.

That will be an enormous crossroads turning point time period, and a few months surrounding that eclipse should be filled with important world events, especially concentrated in August.

That should be a very intense time period energetically, and it also will bring huge waves of creative frequencies of love and truth for your transformational process.

We are all needing to clear our energy fields, minds and hearts of toxic old world energies.  It is important to let go of what has been programmed into us by an old world paradigm.

That old paradigm keeps a dense blockade against the new energies trying to pour into us.

As we clear our minds, hearts, souls and bodies of these toxins we create an opening for the new waves.

And now as you look at our world, you know it is imperative for each of us to get off the fence of straddling two worlds, and to make commitment to the New World and Age of Aquarius.

This does not mean you throw caution to the wind and throw away all your security supports.  But it does mean you let go of the fears that keep you a slave to the old world paradigm.  It does mean your allegiance is to your Self, the Universe, the Truth, and what you Love.

Energies this week will shift mid week as the Sun goes into Taurus on Wednesday April 19, Pluto goes Retrgrade on April 20, Mars goes into Gemini on April 21, and recently Direct Venus is exactly square Saturn on the 21st.

As the Sun goes into Taurus on the 19th, what was initiated during Sun in Aries will now be solidified and made manifest.

Also concentration will be more on the physical world, like your body, nature, home, money and land.

Your 5 senses will be more enlivened and it will be a good time to enjoy food, lovemaking, hot tubs, and catering to your bodily pleasures and comforts.

Earth Day happens during Taurus time of year on April 22, so our Earth home can now use more of our care and concern.

Pluto Retrograde on the 21st will intensify our emotions and energy field, bring out power struggles in some, and most importantly will be a time of potential transformation.  There may be a feeling of rebirth around this date.

Mars in Gemini gives us more motivation to learn and share information, talk, communicate and generally move faster.

Venus recently Direct square Saturn tells us about relationship endings, either ending old dysfunctional relationship patterns or seriously considering ending the relationship.

This is an important year of 2017, when we turn the corner toward fully committing to new world consciousness.

The conversation video with me and David Sanipass is here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W2WIRHQ5IQ

Till next week,

Leo

Exploding into New Chapter

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on April 16, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week’s forecast is shorter as I went through a medical emergency this past week and am healing now.

Mars and Pluto change directions to Retrograde on Sunday and Monday respectively.  That’s a lot of intense, provocative, on the edge energy.

There should be some death and rebirth energies at play, even if in minor ways.

Staying in the game, out of ruts of status quo habits is part of the ride now.

You are getting help to let die old ways now though it may be quite painful to do so.

Mars and Pluto together can mean some explosive emotional energies wanting to express.  Be careful not to have your buttons pushed  or to push anyone else’s buttons.  Intense arguments can result.

The political climate gets more intense and combative every day, and right now with Pluto and Mars in the energy spotlight that will intensify even more. It is much more like political warfare than community concern most of the time.

Real world concerns are rarely discussed in a deep, thoughtful way.   Candidates and media play some kind of game that gets candidates to say the same things over and over again in such overly competitive and hateful ways.

Big money interests and the system are running the show.  But “the people” are strong voices now too.  Hanging onto statu quo is hanging onto the old system of the old world.

Vote for what you believe in now, as that is where the New Age resides, not in a practical “least of two evils” approach.

On Tuesday the Sun makes its yearly advance into Taurus. Usually that brings some calmer energies, but don’t count on it this year as Venus squares focal Pluto the same day

Taurus is fixed Earth and seeks security and comfort. It is practical and down to Earth and appreciates its ability to use its’ senses to get information and enjoy life.

Venus square Pluto suggests transformation through relationship intensity.  On Friday the 22nd intensity continues as there is a Full Moon in Scorpio that day.

The Full Moon is at 1:24 AM EDT.  It suggests working out both emotional and money issues with others, as well as strong sexual energies.  Be careful not to get into tugs of war with others.

Should be a very powerful week ahead.

Leo

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 soulus@aol.com.  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,
Leo

 

 

 

Time to Move Forward and Astrology Forecast April 19-25

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 18, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this week’s forecast on Saturday April 18, we are starting up an important lunar cycle.  That is because there is a New Moon in Aries today at 2:57 PM EDT, a new moon that follows a lunar cycle that included a most intense series of planetary configurations.

The last lunar cycle began with a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on the Spring Equinox, and it was followed two weeks later by a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Libra. That Lunar Eclipse formed a Cardinal T-Square with the powerfully transformational Uranus and Pluto.

Much was shaken up during that lunar cycle, both in the greater world and in our personal lives.  We know that our lives are in the process of enormous change, change that will likely exceed the transformation during the ’60s and ’70s.

And now as we move through the first New Moon since the passing month of such intense planetary movement, we are ready to move forward much more fully into a New Chapter of our lives, on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

Last year at and after the Cardinal Grand Cross in spring and early summer, this new important chapter of our lives was opening up.

And now after this New Moon in Aries, we will soon know in no uncertain terms, that there is no turning back.  We are completing our process of releasing the past and getting ready to face more straight forward into our new lives.

On a global scale, most people I talk with know intuitively that life is on the verge of immense change.

The Military/Economic System that holds up the old world is in the process of breaking down, and as it breaks down it is creating space for new light of new consciousness to stream in.

More and more people are awakening now. And as they do wake up, they become more dissatisfied with their lives, bored with the old patterns that keep repeating, over and over again.

Before long inspiration or well timed events will create the spark of change that helps to leave behind that which we have outgrown.

Who can we take with us in our new lives?  Who is growing as we are?  Who can we no longer relate to?  Who no longer understands us or respects our chosen path?

What has become so stale that it no longer nourishes our heart and soul?  Do we need to live somewhere else?  Do we need to more fully accept and embody who we are becoming?  Do we need to leave behind old work situations or careers even if they give us a feeling of security?

And now at this Aries New Moon, we know we can no longer hold onto that which has no spirit and soul anymore.  We can no longer stay with that which our heart is no longer into.

We want to be alive and filled with purpose.  An Aries New Moon can help you to push forward through resistances, and to start a new beginning.  It is time!

On Monday April 20 the Sun moves into fixed earth sign Taurus.  It is time this month, as winter is truly past, to ground into a more fertile Earth, to become more aware of your body and the physical/sensual side of life.

Home, finances, and land become more important. Being in nature again feels more natural.

And Taurus time of year also encourages us to be more practical with our endeavors and to make manifest and real that which has been previously an idea or dream.

We can move forward with our lives as the Aries New Moon demands, and we can do that with our “feet on the ground” so to speak with the Sun in Taurus.

On a global scale, the stage has been set for more conflict and turmoil.   There are those who are committed to the new deal with Iran being completed. And there are those who do not trust the deal and seek more confrontation.

The Middle East is a tinder box vulnerable to any match that will cause great fires of conflict.  But even within the USA there are those radicals who are very unhappy with the direction the president is moving toward.

They are against the peaceful efforts with Iran and Cuba; they are against any attempts to limit gun rights; they are frankly against a president who does not look and act like all the Anglo-Saxon white men who have exclusively run our government in the past. They are against change into a New World of Diversity in Unity.

Those potential “terrorists” in our country may be even more dangerous to the country than the ones from other countries,  as was Timothy McVeigh in 1995 or even John Wilkes Booth in 1865.

Our economy and lives are on the verge of immense strife.   There is conflict that is growing between those who want to change our world and those who want to keep things as they were in the past.

And of course each of us needs to work that conflict out inside ourselves and in our own lives.

How fast do we want change to happen and how much do we want to keep things as they were.

We may not be able to control that issue in our lives, as the Universe and Nature are driving the bus.

What we can do is to stay present and trust the process.  We can also watch the signs and symbols and synchronicities the Universe shows us.  We can stay centered and as calm as possible as the changes swirl around us.  We can trust ourselves to the right thing at the right time as life unfolds.

Israel is likely getting ready to do something drastic in order to unsettle the likely agreement with Iran.  Yemen, Iraq, and Syria are on the verge of greater calamities.  The economy and stability of Greece and Europe is getting weaker.  All the world is in the process of great transformation, so we can insert new values that are aligned with an Age of Aquarius.

That age is to be founded on the principles of equality, fairness, liberation, freedom, and Diversity within Unity.  We are each unique members of a great family of human. And though we are going through huge growing pains now and often now are bringing out the worst sides of our natures; we are nevertheless in the process of mutating and evolving into people who are adapting to the consciousness and needs of the Age of Aquarius.

Some types will become extinct, but others are becoming the forerunners of a new paradigm, new human, and new age.

Till next week,

Leo

Mars Direct- a Time for Action, and Astrology Forecast April 15-21

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last night Friday April 13 at 11:53 PM here on the east coast Mars went back Direct again.   The day leading up to the Mars turn, North Korea shot a satellite that failed out toward space.    The powers of the world are concerned about the nuclear capability of North Korea.

The first day after Mars went Direct, Iran is meeting with these same powers of the world to discuss Iran’s nuclear capability.

So nuclear bombs are a topic of concern as Mars, the god of war, is in the planetary spotlight.

And a few days earlier, as Pluto the god of the underworld was changing directions to Retrograde, a huge 8.6 earthquake in Indonesia exploded from the depths.

Those events were part of the intense week promised in last week’s forecast.

The talks in Iran are especially important, as there is a potential storm brewing as we move soon into an new eclipse season.

These world powers, all of whom together possess thousands of nuclear bombs, worry that North Korea and Iran may have or develop one or two.

The USA, who has the most nuclear bombs, and has used them to kill thousands of people in Japan in World War II, worries about what Iran or North Korea might build.

Israel, who is the only country in the Middle East to have nuclear bombs, and reportedly has many, has promised to bomb Iran because they may build one in the future.

This is a great concern this Eclipse Season. Will Israel bomb Iran?  And these world powers, now meeting with Iran, are hoping to diffuse this situation by talking Iran into stopping its civilian uranium enrichment, as it they believe it may someday lead to making a bomb.  Iran has been solid up to now, saying it has a right to develop peaceful uranium energy.   Sanctions put on them by the USA and Europe, however, have been crippling their economy, so they may need to compromise.

These are the leaders of our current world structure and paradigm.  Are they talking about building a better world, more fair and just?  Feeding people who are starving all over the world?  Stopping the human sex trade of women all over the world?   Stopping the abuse and prejudice of gays all over the world?   Building alternative fuels, to stop the addiction to oil? Cleaning up our oceans and environment?  Building a fair economic system?  Building a world community that is connected together to better serve world citizenry?   Becoming more spiritual and bringing more compassion to our world? Learning to respect truth and love instead of power and celebrity and privilege?

No. The leaders of this world are looking to stop Iran and North Korea from building the same weapons of mass destruction that all of them already possess and have used on innocent civilians.  They want you to believe that they are the good guys and those other countries are the evil bad guys?

Do we need to follow anymore this old programming that keeps us fighting for our nation’s team against the teams of other nations?   Is it not time to transform the world that is being run by people who believe is it right to be in survival of the fittest mentality.  They believe some peoples and nations should win because they are good and other nations should lose because they are bad.

And the good nations should get the money and power to run the world their way.  And invade other countries when they feel it is right for them.

The old game is about power and control and getting for your self what you need. We are taught it is the way of the world, and we teach our children that way too.

The new world and paradigm teach us we are all one family together, and it is true if we collectively believe it and want it.  And our survival is dependent on it.  Why?

Because with all these weapons of mass destruction in the hands of people who believe we are enemies of one another, we live with time ticking toward eventual destruction.

So that is why it is so important for each of us to learn new ways to believe and think, and to teach our children and others these new ways.

But first it is important to leave and release the old programming from our society and families that pit us one against another.

As you connect spiritually, as you live a more healthy life, as you honor your authentic being and soul, as you feel the connections to others and the Universe, you have become part of the solution, and a member of the Aquarian Age we are all moving into together.

What happens in the greater world now is beyond our control.  But we can heal and transform our little cell in the body of the world and Universe and have faith that we are in transition into an Aquarian Age.

It is normal in a transition such as this, as our world and world consciousness is transforming, to go through such depths of challenge.  Births are painful and there are labor pains and times of emotional and spiritual despair before the birth.

Whatever challenges are coming our way will pass, as we are moving closer every day to the Aquarian Age, not a perfect world, but one that will begin the process of bringing us together as one community and family of peoples all over the world.

THIS WEEK, as MARS is NOW DIRECT, is time to begin to move your consciousness and life forward. Remember that Mars is going slowly still, and will be for a couple weeks or so, so there is no need to go fast forward.

But it is time to start moving and acting, to be in touch with what you truly want to do now in your life.   We can no longer stay hidden and keep all our options open.  We need to start looking for what we want to do with our life and what actions to take.

Later this week we move out of Aries energies and into Taurus. The Sun moves into Taurus this Thursday April 19, and the Moon joins the Sun in Taurus next Saturday the 21st at 3:18 AM to make a New Moon in Taurus.

Whatever has begun is now ready to make solid. It is time to make manifest and real and practical.  Taurus is a good time to find resources that will make your life more comfortable and secure.

Your home and possessions need your concentration more, your garden and land too.  Taurus teaches us that no matter what is going on, we still need to enjoy our life and our pleasures.

Soon enough the energies will get more lively as the Eclipses move in later in May.

See you next week,

Leo

Calm Before the Storm and Astrology Forecast April 17-23

We are now in a lull of calm before the storms of the eclipse season.   Dust has been settling from recent changes and intense transformational shifts.    Nature has begun to come alive, but it almost seems to be holding back before it bursts forth in all its beauty, as it is almost ready to put on its yearly show of full blossoming and abundance.   

We each have also burst forth, but not in full bloom yet.  Many planets have been and are still in Aries, pushing us, like buds through the trees, into situations that require us to stand up and empower ourselves in all new ways.   This is, for some,  a newfound  or renewed sense of empowerment.  It is preparation for what is to come.

Mercury is in the last week of its retrograde phase, so we are in pause so we can reflect on our lives and on our past, understanding what we need to know, and integrating  more of us before we move on.

After Mercury goes direct next SaturdayApril 23, our minds begin to get more clear, direction is more apparent.   We will be mentally more ready for the shifting tides of late spring and summer.    The Taurus New Moon on May 2 begins the lunar cycle that is the one prior to the first eclipse on June 1.  That eclipse on June 1 will be the next new moon, but a much more powerful new moon, as it is a Solar Eclipse New Moon.  

Exactly when we begin to experience the winds of this eclipse season, I am not totally sure.  Usually a couple weeks before that first eclipse, we can definitely feel the shifting wind patterns of our lives blowing in, but sometimes even before that. 

You will know the eclipse season has begun energetically when you feel the intensity of your self and life increase, and you feel taken out of your usual balance.  Events in the world are usually intensifying also then.   It is possible this time that the shakeup and intensity will not truly ensue until close to the onset of that first eclipse on June 1, which is at 11+ degrees of Gemini. This is because the previous lunar cycle is in Taurus, a fixed earth sign that does not emit much energy, and instead holds on and stays put.    If there is much movement already during Taurus time, we can expect a quite powerful eclipse season ahead.

In the greater world, the dust has been settling from the big events of the winter of 2010/2011.  The revolutionary uprisings in the Middle East are still going on, but we now have gotten used to that in our collective consciousness.  The earthquake and tsunami in Japan created the worst nuclear reactor disaster of all time on Earth.  We are now trying to more deeply understand what this all means to our human family and what changes we want to make.   The oil disaster in the gulf of the USA in 2010, along with the nuclear disaster, show us the monsters we have created and need to control.   Wars and other disasters have occurred as a result of our relationships with both oil and nuclear energy.

In order to create the world we desire for an Aquarian Age, we need to cure our addiction to oil and need to harness the power created by nuclear energy.

In a way our relationship to oil represents our lack of control of our greedy nature; and our relationship to nuclear energy represents the lack of control of our needs for power.   We rape the Earth for oil and bring potential toxic energies into her body with oil spills and nuclear waste, leaks, and potential fallout.  We also harm our human family and other creatures with these oil and nuclear disasters.  We invade other countries for oil, we threaten one another with nuclear weapons.   These recent disasters, happening in conjunction with profound astrological aspects, shine a spotlight on these toxic patterns that we need to face up to and transform- on our way through the transition into an Aquarian Age.

As we soon move through the eclipse season of the late spring and summer of 2011, watch the news and world events for more clues of what needs to be transformed in our world to clear the way for the Aquarian Age.

This Week there is Full Moon in Aries/Libra this Sunday April 17 at 10:44 PM EDT.  The main issues to be addressed are personal empowerment balanced with relationship skills. You have been empowering your self with all the planets in Aries, and now it is time to integrate that into your relationships.  How does one stay empowered while being sensitive to the needs of others? Another issue to be examined now is our needs for independence and our desire to be with others. 

The Sun moves into Taurus on Wednesday April 20.  Taurus time is a time to get more into your body and into the physical side of life. It is time to concentrate energies on the home, money, resources and others issues of security and comfort.  It is time to solidify whatever you have started during Aries time of year.

And finally- this week Mercury goes back direct next Saturday April 23. For some that will feel like a relief from mental confusion. Th eairwaves are clearing up and clarity is developing.   If you have been putting off decisions, you may now or soon feel OK to make them.

See you next week,

Leo
