Mercury Direct, Mars soon too, and Astrology Forecast August 19-25

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on August 18, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this week’s forecast, Mercury is stationary, getting ready to shift from Retrograde to Direct at 12:25 AM EDT on Sunday August 19.  All other USA time zones have Mercury going Direct late on August 18.

When Mercury has slowed down and shifts to Direct, the mind is in flux, and things may feel more confusing or unusual or strange.

This will continue until around Monday the 20th, when our mind should again begin to feel more stable and clear.

Then for some it may take another week or so before they feel more back to normal mentally.

Waiting to make big decisions is a good thing now as Mercury’s trickster self often comes out to play when it shifts direction.

Keep in mind that Mars, however, remains Retrograde this week. It goes back Direct on August 27.

So clear direction, needs for willful action, and needs to know what you want now, are still on hold.

What do you really want for your life now?  What needs to be let go of in order to leave room for what you truly want?

At first do not think about it being practical or not. Get in touch with your “wants” from a pure or core place inside of you.

Once that is clear, then you can start your inner dialogue about how those desires can be grounded in reality.

And also while Mars is still Retrograde, get in touch with how these desires must be connected to your Soul or Spirit self, not just material desires.

You have been growing and evolving, finding your purpose and authentic Self in this world and Universe.

All your choices now can be connected to both your “higher self” and “lower self”. It is like telling a higher power, “make my will be thou will”.

Picking a home or relationship, for instance, that is connected to your True Self is just as important or actually more so, than price, image, and practical reality.

Are paying your bills or making your ego satisfied the reasons you came to the Earth?

Do you have a purpose? I do not mean a grandiose purpose necessarily, but rather a function in the human collective for the new world.

And a homemaker or mechanic, for instance, contribute to and service our community,  Earth and Universe- IF that is truly their function not just what they had to do to survive.

And one’s purpose or function can change over the course of a lifetime. The homemaker decides she will best serve and be deeply satisfied as a lawyer after her kids are mature enough or gone from the home.

But the point being made is that it is important to know what you want and what purpose is right for you at a deep level.

There are too many doctors or lawyers or CEO’s that took those careers because they gave them status or wealth. I am not now saying it is necessarily wrong to want those things in a career. I am saying that those reasons are best not being the main reasons for wanting the career. Being “called” to be a healer or doctor is most important to the professions in the medical or healing world.

Our world would be best served if everyone was doing what is deeply connected to their true purpose and function first and foremost.

The Age of Aquarius has Diversity within Unity as its signature, so finding your unique and authentic self and its place in the whole is most important.

I can tell you from experience that the Universe will help support you if you are in alignment with Your Truth and its contribution to the Earth, human community, and Universe.

The walls of the old ways of being separated and disconnected are leaving us now.

Yes the ways of separation inside ourselves is being broken down also. That does not mean all is unified in a way that each person must wear the same uniform as everyone else and hence losing of one’s individuality.

We are breaking down the walls of separation and at the same time opening the way for each person or entity to find and honor their true authentic Self and from that place contribute to the Whole Universe, Whole Earth and its creatures, and the Whole human community.

But first each of us must actualize our true whole Self by accepting our own inner diversity.

We cannot judge harshly or seriously repress any part of our multi-faced and multi-dimensional human Self.

We can keep each facet of ourselves alive and accepted, and expressed in the best way for our whole and unified Self.

As we accept all our many facets of self, we are doing what is needed in the world and human community within our own soul.

If your parents or other authorities shamed you for your passion or kindness or slowness or forcefulness, for instance, you tend to dislike that part of yourself and suppress it. Or rebel and force it on others.

The same is done out in the world. If someone is gay, for instance, they may be programmed by society or family or friends to judge themselves, be ashamed of themselves, and may suppress how they naturally express themselves or act out in the world. Or they stay in the closet. It takes real courage and self honoring to come out of judged boxes.

And each of us has been told who we are “supposed to be” in order to be accepted and not judged.

So we may then be ashamed and hide certain parts of our selves, keeping those traits boxed in our own inner closet.

Now the walls are coming down, we are each awakening, and knowing from a deeper place than ever before, that all in its essence is good, and all is connected.

Eclipse Season is still alive, but the energies are not as intense now. We are kind of seeing where all is at as the dust settles. Then later we will be ready to act in accordance with our collected soul wholeness and true function or purpose in this New Chapter of life on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

Mercury goes Direct at 12:25 AM EDT on August 19. And within two hours of the beginning of Mercury going Direct, Jupiter trines Neptune.

This is a potentially very spiritual combination, one that can take us into other dimensions or realities.  Your meditations may have more magic, as can be in your consciousness and life with synchronicity and meaningful symbols from the Universe.

But that same combination of Jupiter with Neptune can bring confusion or chaos. There are no boundaries with Jupiter/Neptune, so you could either fly into mystical dimensions or be in situations or mind frames that have you feeling disoriented.

Heads up this week, especially from late Saturday through Monday. Keep alcohol or drugs in moderation this week.

On the 22nd/23rd (12:09 AM EDT) the Sun goes into Virgo for its annual 30 day trip.

This can be a rather sobering time of the Virgo virgin needing things pure, ordered, efficient, and with discerning eye.

Virgo seeks perfection and can easily focus in on whatever is stopping things from being perfect or ordered.  So it tends to find what is wrong, and then sets out to fix, heal, and perfect.

Virgo time of year opens the doors of schools and the gathering of the harvest. It seeks simplicity and order, and can get rather obsessed with what it is thinking or doing.  It is a natural analyzer and wants everything to be real, warts and all.

When the Moon catches up with the Sun in Virgo on September 9th, it creates a New Moon in Virgo. After that we will be even more focused on fixing what needs to be fixed, healing what needs to be healed, working harder, and making things real and manifest.

Summer Eclipse Season will pretty much end then, and it will be time to get down to reality, but also to make real all that was merely concept or idea before.

Much has happened in the world during this Eclipse Season, and now as the Sun in Virgo will tend to sober us up beginning this week, we will look from a very real place at the condition of our world, country, and personal lives.

Yet being sober and real will also help us to come up with plans to fix what has gone wrong so we can move forward in the best way.

Till next week,

Leo

Times They are Changing and Astrology Forecast August 21-27

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on August 20, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now experiencing the first breezes of the Eclipse Season’s winds of change and transformation.

Intensity will gradually increase as we move toward our first eclipse, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 1.  That will be followed two weeks later by the second eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces on September 16.

Some people I talk to get nervous and frightened when they know eclipses are coming. There is nothing to be afraid of.  Of course that fear is embedded in our ancestral memory, as those who came before us were really afraid when they saw the Sun go black during a Solar Eclipse.  There were all sorts of superstitions that were then triggered.

But we modern humans do not feel as small in the face of the Universe and Nature as did our ancestors.  We know we are co-creators with those forces.

Nevertheless the eclipses, like all planetary influences, do bring us energy formations, like weather patterns, and those influences can blow in like storms and influence change.

The two eclipses this September are in usually gentle Virgo and Pisces. Eclipses do add more intensity and power to normally gentle energies.  Plus both these eclipses will form strong mutable t-squares that will include Mars, the Lunar Nodes, and Neptune in their signatures.   

That complicates and intensifies the eclipses even more.  Expect breakthroughs and breakdowns in parts of your life and consciousness, as well as the same for the greater world.   We will give a broader and deeper evaluation next week, the week of the first eclipse.

We will also discuss the fact that Mercury will go Retrograde just two days before the first eclipse on September and will stay Retrograde all the way through the second eclipse- until September 22 on the Autumn Equinox.

Mercury Retrograde will help us to question and think outside the usual mental boxes, but it may cause some fogginess or confusion in its process.

During the Eclipse Season with Mercury Retrograde, you will serve your life best by being flexible and open and trusting of what the Universe and Nature bring forward. This coming week will set the table for the coming shifting winds of change.

This week, a week before the first eclipse, we feel the stirrings of change, but our concentration will be more about completing, finishing up, processing, and preparing for the eclipses.

That is because this week we experience the Sun going into Virgo on Monday August 22; Mars conjuncts Saturn and squares Neptune on August 24 and 26 respectively; and we begin the last quarter of the Lunar Cycle on August 24.

The last quarter Moon prompts us to reflect on where we have recently been and where we intend to go now.  It helps us to clean up and get ready.

The Sun in Virgo also shows us the way to cleaning up and finding order, to getting back to more work and school, to repairing and fixing what need ot be repaired and fixed, to maintenance, to healing, and also to using our left brain abilities to focus, analyze and discern.

Mars conjuct Saturn and squaring Neptune tells us to stop or pause before we move forward, to deeply reconsider before making an absolute decision or action, to be patient and flexible.

We cannot push the rivers of our lives to go faster or to change their direction to where we want them to go.

Soon the blocks to progress will be removed, as we get further into the Eclipse Season.   Eclipses are about movement.

I know many of you are quite concerned now about the state of our world and country.   I remember back in the ’60s and ’70s people feeling the same way.

There was an unjust war in Viet Nam, a corrupt President in Nixon, protests that turned violent, awakenings of the injustices toward black people and women, fears of nuclear destruction, and the assassinations of President Kennedy, his brother Robert Kennedy, and Martin Luther King.  Gender roles were rapidly changing, and relationships and marriages were breaking down.

But all of this was happening as the old world and its systems were breaking down, as new light, new truth, and greater justice and fairness was opening up.  It was the best of times and the worst of times.

And now revolution and evolution are strong again, and it is not always pretty, but hope is all around.  Look at the millennial generation and its passion for change through Bernie Sanders.  Look all around at the people now open to meditation, yoga, and new spirituality and healing.

There are people all around who are shining more Love and are more grounded in Truth.   We are now more connected all over the world than ever before through internet, global communication, global commerce, and global travel.

We now need to connect more through the heart and soul and with empathy for those with different lifestyles, cultures, beliefs, and ways of life all over the world.

Sure many get really down about our choices for President in 2016, but they will not ruin our world any more than did a Richard Nixon presidency. There is a bigger picture at work and the Universe and its cycles and seasons are much more influential than a USA presidential election.

In fact Nixon’s presence caused people to passionately rise up and demand change.  His presence and the war and the state of the System caused people to evolve and grow and live up to what they believed in.

We were then at a turning point in revolution and evolution into a new Age of Aquarius.

And we are even closer now to that New Age, no matter how dark it appears sometimes.

Till next week,

Leo

Navigating the Changing Times and Astrology Forecast August 23-30.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 22, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week we expressed to you we felt something big was coming. Well last week so much felt big:  Israel attacked from Syria and retaliated; North Korea and South Korea in a dangerous war posture; but mostly the serious downturn of the stock market- down over 1000 points for the week, and with China’s market crashing the world economy is in a precarious position. I believe these big events are still not the biggest we will face. There is more to come.

You know this is only the very beginning of the Eclipse Season of late summer and early autumn 2015.  As we let you know last week the New Moon in Leo on August 14 brought in the early winds of change from the Eclipse Season.

There is much more transformational change on the way this late summer and autumn. There is still Venus Retrograde until September 6.

The current crisis between North and South Korea is happening during Venus Retrograde.  it is a relationship between two halves of the old whole of Korea.  It is almost like they are twin flames.

North and South Korea split and went to war in the early 1950’s.    That split and war was part of the cold war between the USA and Russia.  Russia backed North Korea and the USA backed South Korea.    At the end of the war a truce was made but not a peace settlement. Technically North and South Korea are at war. Their split is very much a result of interference from world powers.

This Venus Retrograde meeting, as the winds of the Eclipse Season begin to blow in, may be pushing the Koreas to a place where they will need to either move closer to peace now or a war.  Eventually they may unite again.

If there is a war there it might mean that the powers of China, Russia, and the USA get involved.  Let us hope not.

The problems with Israel and Syria now are reflective of issues with Iran as Iran is Syria’s sponsor and ally.   You can see how what happens there will also be important for the whole world as some world countries like the USA have allegiance to Israel and others like Russia have allegiance to Iran and Syria.

The economy is very global now and interconnected as you can see how what has been happening in China (the world’s 2nd largest economy next to the USA) is affecting Wall Street and economies all over the world.

How this Eclipse Season plays out is very important to how the world will transform into the Age of Aquarius.

All each of us can do is to enter and stay in consciousness that is connected to love and truth, to healing our Earth, its creatures and the human family.

Each of us is not perfect and will make mistakes, but it is so important that we keep our intention strong to be in our Higher Self even if we leave it sometimes.

The collective situation is dependent on where each of us is in our consciousness.  No one of us can save the world from what it will go through, but we can each do our part and to join with others who feel the same.

We must each stop ourselves from tendencies to get revenge or to let our rage lead the way.  Yes we must let ourselves feel anger enough to stay stop or no, but we do not need to let ourselves be consumed by hatred or deep animosity that will lead to serious conflict.

This is a turning point for humanity and what each of us feels and does is very important now.

This week, as we have just passed through the beginning of the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle that began last week at the New Moon in Leo; we now are headed toward the Full Moon.

That Full Moon will be next Saturday the 29th of August. It will have the Sun in Virgo and the Moon in Pisces.  It will be at 2:35 PM EDT and it will have Jupiter conjunct the Sun in Virgo and Neptune conjunct the Moon in Pisces.

This is normally a very gentle Full Moon, and with Neptune as part of its signature that should keep  it is relatively gentle and speaks to more peaceful energies.  Jupiter is much more spirited but in Virgo it does speak to violence.

The only wild card that day is that Mars will be quincuncx Pluto and that could represent some explosiveness.  But it is not a major planetary configuration.

But the down and yin movement of Virgo and Pisces do speak to the possibility that markets will still be headed downward. If they do for some reason level off or move upward this week, then we can still expect more downward movement during the eclipses and Autumn season.

On Sunday the 23rd the Sun goes into Virgo for a month’s stay.  Time to begin to be more humble, simple and real.   Order is needed more now and hard work is aligned with the planets.  Be careful not to get too skeptical or even cynical now. Moon in Sagittarius should help you stay positive for a couple of days.

Late Monday into early Thursday, as the Sun will be in Virgo and Moon in Capricorn,  it is time sober up, get organized and down to work.    Whatever has been boiling over will begin to settle in a bit into more reason.

Virgo is the last month of Summer here in the Northern Hemisphere and it represents the motivation to get ready for the autumn and a downturn of energies. Though you will see the kids go back to the Virgo regimentation of school and you may feel more motivated to fix things up, get maintenance, checkups or healings; remember there is still time to enjoy what is left of summer.

After the Full Moon next Saturday, we enter the waning half of the lunar cycle.  We will be getting ourselves ready for the intensity of the first eclipse:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 13.

Venus Retrograde is also coming into its last phase. On September 6, it will go back Direct- still in Leo. That means that relationship issues will still be in the spotlight of our lives, but the focus will be on finding solution and getting to the heart of the matter.

Old relationships need to heal or people need to move on from each other and Liberate one another.  Hanging on is to the detriment of free spirit. Anger keeps people connected in a very dysfunctional manner.

New relationships will need to begin to get more real.  As we get closer to the end of the Venus Retrograde cycle, we will start to feel more of a need to define these new relationships.    But do your best not to jump to any conclusions either way. Wait for the Venus Retrograde cycle to play its way out.

Some of these relationships that just started around the Venus Retrograde time period are likely past life connections, as Venus Retrograde often suggests past relationships connected to past relationship patterns.

We are being given the opportunity to reexamine our relationship patterns so we can heal and transform them.  That will help us to have better relationships with our current partners or friends or to be more prepared for future relationships.

I know things have not been easy lately for so many of us.  Our issues are being thrown into our faces.  Please do your best to stay centered in the knowledge that all is happening for a reason and that love and truth govern our Universe.

Hate and revenge are the old world and the Old Testament, and keeping that paradigm as a guiding star keeps the old world alive.  Hate and revenge hurt us more than they hurt others as our bodies and souls are stressed and decay with these toxic energies.  Try to find and bring out the best in others no matter what.  Or let them go completely if you cannot.

How we handle relationships tells us so much about the truth of who we are.  Change your vibration and you will attract better people and situations into your life.

Till next week,

Leo

Evolution and Astrology Forecast August 16- 22

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on August 15, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Sure does feel like some really big earth shaking events are right around the corner, doesn’t it?  September, with two important eclipses, is the most likely time of such events, but both August, October, and November are susceptible to great change too.

The New Moon in Leo last Friday August 14 mostly took us out of the funk of a turning point time period.  Now movement is in forward direction for better and worse.    Bridges have been burned behind us and destiny’s path awaits us now.

Perhaps the only question mark on our renewed path now is around relationships.  With Venus still Retrograde until September 6, some are still at a crossroads around heart issues and relationship direction.

Many have been experiencing ghosts of past relationships these last couple of weeks.   People have come back into our lives from earlier times, including past lives.

If during this current Venus Retrograde time period someone apparently new to you has taken your heart and life by storm, they could be from an important past life connection.

Do they seem really familiar to you?  Have you hit it off together surprisingly in a graceful and easy manner? They are back in your life for a reason.

But do not jump to any conclusion too quickly as to what their significance is in your life now.  Do not do anything rash or impulsive.  Best to wait until after Venus goes Direct on September 6 before making any big relationship decisions or taking any important steps in a relationship.

In fact it is best to wait until after the eclipses and into October when Venus goes back to where it started when it went Retrograde.

And this is true for all important relationship issues now.  Do not leap before you look. It is easy now for your perceptions in relationship to be off the mark.   Don’t let your heart or emotions run your relationship life now.  Use a detachment of mind or an inner spiritual observer to assist you in finding an accurate perspective.

At the same time it is quite possible that any relationships that enter your life now will be important to your soul’s path at this challenging and profound moment in human evolution.

We are at a crossroads in evolution.  Do we continue our old ways that now threaten to destroy the Earth, its environment, its creatures, and our human family?   Or do we leap forward with faith into where our souls are leading us, beyond the now toxic and dysfunctional ways?

“An eye for an eye” vengefulness is still prominent in many darker hearts.   We know that attitude must be released in a big way, as the weapons of mass destruction we have built growingly threaten our existence- as more and more countries and cultures have access to them.

Greedy gobbling up of more and more resources and money for oneself also threatens our world.   Greed is a most selfish instinct that leaves so many people starving and/or desperate.   And desperation cause all sorts of human disasters.  And starvation or a sense lack motivates so many crimes.

At the same time as things seem grim and hopeless sometimes in world affairs, many people right now are being awakened and are finding spiritual and soul connections that are taking them forward in evolution.

So there are two distinctly different paths being taken now.  And sitting on the fence between them will not work anymore. You can no longer hedge your bets.  It is time to choose. The Soul’s Higher Self leads your way or your ego self leads your way.

Your Higher Self now is your connection to the evolution necessary to enter the Age of Aquarius.  Your ego self is your connection to the Dinosaur.

This does not mean having no ego! It is all about balance and priority.  What leads your life is the question and what are you moving toward:  Higher Self’s sense of alignment and connections or ego’s separative control of everything?

In the greater world we see this playing out in a drastic way.  The Islamic State is representative of the shadow side of the human condition.

It is the part of each of us and each culture or country that sees the world through the eyes of dog-eat-dog fight for the survival of the fittest.  My self or family or country or religion is better than any else, and we need to ruthlessly fight for its survival against all others.

There is no sense in this paradigm of all as One, everything connected in a sacred and meaningful way.

Evolution is about survival of the fit, but survival is now dependent on a paradigm and consciousness of unity and connection of all.  And being fit requires a consciousness of wholeness and of all humans being a part of the same family on our sacred Planet Earth, which is part of the unity of our Universe.

And we are each an individualized unique cell in the soul of that Universe, and responsible for our authenticity and function in that wholeness.

Killing for our god or our country or our family- so we can survive while others get destroyed will not further evolution anymore. In fact that belief system will kill us all.

Current conditions require us to adapt in new ways right now.  And a consciousness of Diversity in Unity is a prerequisite for evolution into a new age and dimension. And the coming eclipses will challenge us all to transform.

Since the New Moon in Leo, we have entered the last lunar cycle before the eclipses that begin on September 13 at the Solar Eclipse in Virgo.

We are now feeling the beginning winds of the storms of eclipse season.

As these storms blow in, we will need new leaders and voices to assist our journey.   Our world economy needs to be more equitable.  Our foreign affairs need to have more of a sense of unity instead of conflict.

Voices of hatred or superiority or revenge must not be heeded anymore.  Voices that awaken us to the truth,  and to more fair and loving ways are the ones we need now.  And each of us is also responsible for finding those voices in our inner consciousness too.

This coming week, as we move up to the first quarter moon in Scorpio on August 22, we are getting started toward what we have decided is important.

Most planets this week are in either Leo or Virgo.   So there is a split between hearty and proud fun loving Leo, and humble analytical, subdued Virgo.   If you are overly confident or arrogant you will likely be taken down some notches this week

But if you are overly self deprecating or shamed, you will be given some strokes of support for your self esteem this week.

Back to school Virgo activity will increase now, as will Virgo instincts to fix what needs to be fixed and begin projects of maintenance and bringing more simplicity and order to your life.

The Sun leaves Leo and will join Mercury and Jupiter in Virgo next Sunday the 23rd of August.  Virgo helps to purify the ego if used right. If used wrongly it is just the other side of the coin of arrogance: humiliation.

There will be more and more clues now as to what is about to come down in our world soon. So stay as mentally neutral and emotionally non reactive as possible so you can see the truth as it unfolds.

Till next week,

Leo

Time to Pause and Astrology Forecast August 17-23

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 16, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving down into the last quarter of the lunar cycle this week, and there are no “important” or very intense planetary movements right now.  Maybe we can take a break from so many great waves of change, and settle down a bit.

We are also in the last few days of Leo time of year before we enter the transition month between summer and autumn.   That transition begins later this week as the Sun moves into Virgo on Saturday the 23rd at 12:46 AM Eastern USA Time.

So if you have not gotten too beaten up by all the intensity from early this year through last week, perhaps you can find some time for fun this week.

Or maybe you will need the time to process all that has happened, to get deeper into your body and soul and do some healing.  Perhaps you will need this down time to make some completions, find some resolution, get a better understanding of all that has erupted in your life this year.

This year is an important year of transformation for our human species.  We are in a most powerful chapter of the transition between ages.   We are being “asked” to transform our lives and consciousness in alignment with the Age we are moving into.

To evolve one does not have to be “mean and lean”, does not necessarily mean being the strongest or the most intelligent.  Survival of the fittest is mostly about adaptability to change.

And right now adaptability is mostly about changing one’s consciousness to be in alignment with what the Age of Aquarius is demanding.  Those who still believe that the ones who have the most power or the most money or the most popularity will be the survivors – are off track as that kind will populate the zoos or be the dinosaurs of our future.

Those who believe in Love, who know we are all members of the same family, who respect those who are different from them,  who cherish the Earth, who learn to have empathy for others,  who know all in life is connected and meaningful, will evolve into our new world.  Jesus is said to have spoken that the “meek share inherit the Earth”.  Those who have peace in their hearts will help our Earth and our human family to heal and transform.

I know when you look around now at all the events in the world, it can be so frightening and tempt one to live in fear and become cynical.

Last week we had a well known member of our human family, one who was famous and rich hang himself- Robin Williams.

Buying into the cultural values and being successful on those terms does not make one happy or help one to better survive in the bigger picture.

What one develops in one’s heart and soul, in one’s “inner kingdom”, is where the key to being satisfied and evolving lies.

If you are fearful, depressed, self loathing, untrusting, then you will find misery and you will not truly grow and evolve on a deeper level.  This does not mean you should judge or blame yourself or others for being in that sad state. But you do need to take responsibility for your inner health.

And it does mean that going within and finding your true self, finding inner peace, finding love and truth, will help you most on your life journey.

This does not mean that money or success or popularity are bad, and in fact they can make life easier and more enjoyable.

But without the inner values, those things will be empty and you may never feel you have enough of them.

And without the intention for your  consciousness evolving now, beyond what the conventional world has programmed you to believe and be, you will not be open to the signs that show you your true path of soul evolution.

If you are becoming who others want you to be, you are losing your Self and your health and moving off your soul’s path.

One of the benefits of these transformational times is that the parts of your life that are inauthentic are revealed to you when things break down, so you can see the light again and change direction.

Powerfully transformative Uranus and Pluto will continue making exact square to one another, which has been happening since 2012, through Spring 2015- and will continue to bring transformational energy even after that.

The last time Uranus and Pluto made major exact aspect to one another was in 1965-66 when they were conjunct.  This brought on the ’60s revolution, but of course that revolution stretched into the ’70s.

The next exact square between Uranus and Pluto is in December this year 2014.  And that will be at the end of the autumn, finishing off another Eclipse Season, this time Autumn Eclipse Season 2014. 

The beginning waves of this Eclipse Season will be felt in mid September and the first actual eclipse will be on October 8, a Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries. That will be followed by a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 23.

Uranus and Pluto will be making a Cardinal T-square with  that Aries Lunar Eclipse, a formation almost as powerful as a Grand Cross.

But for now as we enter the last quarter Moon in Taurus this Sunday the 17th, do your best to chill and recharge your heart “batteries”.

Late Sunday/early Monday Jupiter conjuncts Venus in Leo, to bring more joy and hope to you along with the light and airy Moon in Gemini at that time.

Later in the week, after the Moon goes into feeling oriented Cancer from Wednesday through most of Friday, there are relatively minor aspects involving Uranus, Pluto, and Mars in Scorpio.  That should bring more intensity, but nothing to shake you up too much.

See you next week,

Leo

Getting it Together and Astrology Forecast August 25-31

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 24, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It is Sun in Virgo time of year, the transitional last month of summer before Autumn Equinox.  It is apt that at Virgo time of year school starts up again, as Virgo represents the need for “getting it together”, getting to work, and putting order in our lives.    It is time to at least begin to think about what needs to be repaired or fixed or healed.

Virgo is the Virgin, which is not directly related to sex.  Astrologically it is more about wanting purity or perfection.  And Virgo is great at finding what is impure or “what is wrong with this picture” in order to know what needs to be fixed to make things more pure or perfect.   It has a most critical eye, a talent for discrimination and discernment.  It often is most critical of itself, and can obsess on some fault or actually can obsess on most anything it puts its mind to.

Virgo needs order and simplification, and can be incredibly efficient.    As an earth sign, it likes to keep things “close to the ground” and does not like emotions or spirits or ideas to be out of control or “flying too high”.

It is skeptical by nature, in its head, and is good at analyzing and intellectually processing.   From that place it can get very locked in to what it is thinking about or focused on.

Virgo is also a mutable sign, and can be lead by others, not usually wanting to take charge or push anything.    It instead can be satisfied being of service and doing what needs to be done.

Virgo comes right after dramatic Leo, so instead is learning to be humble and not ostentatious.   Leo roars and Virgo is best being modest and “low-key”.

Please do not look for all Virgos to be tidy and neat.  All Virgos have a need for order, but this can come in varied ways, like mental order or not having any chaos or emotional upset. Sometimes the need for order is so strong inside them, that they need to let go and let life be “messy” instead, in order to take the pressure off.

So as you get in touch with the need now to put things in order, to get back to school or hard work again, keep in mind that it is still summer and we are still within a Leo lunar cycle, still needing to enjoy summer and have fun.

After September 5, when the Moon joins the Sun in Virgo for a Virgo New Moon, we then get more fully engaged with getting down to work or school, getting our lives simplified, fixed, and put back in order.

There is a major storm of life intensity coming this Autumn in our personal lives and in the greater world.   Much will shake up again as we experience another Eclipse Season in October/November, another Uranus/Pluto exact square, Mercury Retrograde, and the appearance of Comet Ison in late November.   That comet may be a bright light in the sky and another harbinger of meaningful change, or it could turn out dim and be a dud.

Nevertheless, those other planetary events promise a most powerful, transformational, and meaningful Autumn Season.

In fact the second Eclipse of the two this autumn  is a hybrid Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, to be seen on the eastern seaboard USA, in southern Europe, the Middle East, and much of Africa.  Those regions, therefore,  may also feel more of the intensity on an energetic and transformational level.

For now, however, life energies should be beginning to settle down this week and have less intensity, generally speaking.    The Sun in Virgo makes opposition to Neptune Monday/Tuesday, suggesting we let go and trust, even while we are trying hard to figure things out or make them work right.

Mars leaves “feelings” oriented and family focused Cancer for fun loving and creative Leo on Wednesday/Thursday, where it will stay until mid October.  Open up your creative energies and projects, and let your heart’s intuition lead your way more.

Big egos on the world stage will show off their imagined “royalty” and superiority during this Mars in Leo time period and drive world events.

Make no mistake about it,  world leaders from the western world are getting ready to militarily engage in Syria. The USA has sent war ships today to the shores near Syria.  They will be slyly setting us all up for military involvement in Syria. Remember Iraq and weapons of mass destruction, which did not exist?

Now it is chemical weapons being used by the government of Syria.   They are setting us up again for war.  If chemical weapons are indeed being used, there is evidence they are being used by all parties involved.  And this is a most complicated conflict, with many Middle Eastern countries, western powers, and Russia all strutting for positions of power in this prized geopolitical spot on the Earth.  The instability also in Egypt and elsewhere since the Arab Spring promises powerful change in the Middle East and the world

We are moving into a dark cocoon of turmoil, which will eventually birth a butterfly of an Age of Aquarius.

Meditate and pray this conflict can be as tempered as possible, and that lessons will learned sooner than later, paving the way for a more graceful healing crisis for our human family here on Earth.

From late September through November the emotional and energetic levels of intensity will increase exponentially, especially in late October and November.

This means each of us will be challenged to stay on our soul path, to be present, to be aware of where the Universe is asking us to be open to healing and transformation in our consciousness and lives.

Sometimes what is mostly going on is not necessarily about making major life moves, but more about shifting the patterns.   We are sometimes so controlled by our early programming, by the wounds, traumas, and abuses from our lives.  These transformational times can bring us to the core of these traumas and programmed patterns, and in the process of exposing the wounds again, in sometimes new forms, we are given the opportunity to make deep change, experience deep healing, and be “reborn” into new ways of thinking, feeling and experiencing.

From these new places in our consciousness and souls we sometimes require new relationships or careers or homes, etc.  But often all we need is to be liberated from the stuck places in our minds and hearts, so we can live more healthy and whole lives.

See you next week,

Leo

Fighting For Freedom and Astrology Forecast August 19-26

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 18, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in the first quarter of the lunar cycle after the Leo New Moon last Friday.   Creative juices are flowing, trusting one’s heart to lead the way should be easier now.  It is time to enjoy the summer, to be in the moment, to have fun.

In the middle of this week, there will be subtle, or perhaps for some a not so subtle shift, as the Sun moves into Virgo on Wednesday August 22.  Thoughts begin to creep in about getting back to business, back to school, doing repairs, fixing the teeth, etc.   Virgo can be a bummer after Leo fun-time. Virgo is grounded and seeks to simplify and be more humble than the royal Leo Lion who roars to get attention.  So this week is good to begin to move toward getting things back in simple order, but don’t rush to it, as there is still more summer play time.

The intensity meter will go up appreciably in mid-September, when the Uranus/Pluto square forms again for a second time this year.   Pluto will be strong then as it will be changing direction back to Direct at that time.   That square will be at almost 7 degrees of Aries and Capricorn, so if you have planets at 5-9 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn you will be motivated to take a leap forward in your transformational process.  Letting go of the past and embracing change will be important surrounding the time in mid-September.

Middle East tensions, political passions, and economic worries will be strong at that time.  Powerful events surrounding those issues are quite possible then.   That mid-September time and November/December are the likely times for big world events surrounding those subjects.

In fact November will be a blockbuster of a month, with Mercury retrograde on Election Day, two Eclipses, and Mars triggering the Uranus/Pluto square. By the end of November we will have a lot stronger sense of what the meaning of the Mayan Calendar ending on December 21, 2012 will be.

Will it be another dud like Y2K, or will be as powerful a shift as many Mayan experts are telling us?  Since November is laden with powerful planetary movements, the Middle East is boiling, the economy is fragile, the USA presidential election will be decided, and there is obviously such dysfunction and toxicity in the mainstream world; it is not difficult to imagine world events that will shake up our lives leading up to that Mayan calendar ending.

Rest assured that those events are part of the process of a shifting of ages.    The old world and all its institutions are dominated by Big Corporate and Big Government.  Organized Religion is also a part of the controls by State and Corporations.   In Russia this week, the young female rock group Pussy Riot was arrested and sentenced to two years in prison for making protest inside the largest Orthodox church in Russia.  It was protesting against the alliance between Big Religion and the State of Russia run by Vladamir Putin. Putin is poised to take more freedoms away from the people of Russia with a growing dictatorship.

And in London, Julian Assange is fighting for his freedom against western powers who seek to shut up him and his Wiki-leaks creation, which is providing previously secret information to citizens of the world. Ecuador is giving Assange sanctuary in its embassy in London, but Britain has threatened to defy international law and storm the embassy to get Assange, who is wanted for trial in Sweden for rape.  Most people see this rape charge as trumped up in order to put the free speech leader Assange away.

These two events show us, along with the Occupy Wall Street movement, which is still alive, that people are beginning to stand up to the Old World Powers that seek to keep in shackles the free hearts, souls, and minds of humanity.

The coming world events will further break down the walls of control of the citizens of this world.   The Aquarian Age is an age of power to the people of the world, and the development of world equality, liberation, and Diversity in Unity.

Of course we will discuss more and more on this forecast blog over the next several weeks the planetary aspects, world events, and personal healing and transformation for these times. We will talk about how best to navigate the changes too.

I will make prediction in September about the presidential election in November , as I am now much closer to having an opinion of how it will likely go.  Of course we do all vote, but astrology can show us trends and point to a likely outcome, though people with their will as seen through the vote can shift the tide in my estimation. I will also do some radio streaming broadcasts and likely some U-Tube presentations in October and November.

But this week, before the storms of September and even greater storms of November, enjoy Leo play.   Mid week is the beginning of wanting to put more serious order to life again with the Sun in Virgo.  And on Thursday, action oriented Mars leaves peace and harmony seeking Libra and enters intense and passionate Scorpio. It will be there for the Democratic and Republican conventions from August 27-  September 7.

So after August 23rd, Mars will be aligned for the next month and a half to be more active in pursuing your passions.   Time to stop holding your life’s cup with the pinky finger limply help out. It will be time this week to stir up some trouble brew and say and do what you have been holding back.   Life is more civil with Mars in Libra, it is true; but with Mars in Scorpio the tendency will be to do what is the core of truth for you, even if it ruffles some feathers.  World leaders and countries will also be more likely to take off the gloves of polite discourse.

See you next week,

Leo
