Eclipse Triggers, Mercury Direct, Full Moon and Astrology Forecast September 3-9

This week brings potentially big shifts and breakthroughs, as well as the beginning of increased clarity and direction.  This is because Mars and Mercury (which is slowing down to go back Direct Tuesday the 5th) are triggering the August 21st Total Solar Eclipse New Moon at 28+ degrees of Leo.  

North Korea has just ignited a most powerful hydrogen bomb right at this point of trigger. This will bring a shift into a new chapter of North Korea’s relationship with the USA and the world.

Big shifts, breakdowns and breakthroughs, many quite positive however, have been happening all through this Eclipse Season.

There have been very strong breakthroughs out of old stuck patterns and old ways in people’s lives happening in abundance since that Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21.

This has been a New Moon with new beginnings on steroids, blasting us fast forward into a New Chapter of our personal and collective lives.

Breakthroughs have been happening in many facets of human life, but most importantly there have been breakthroughs in consciousness, attitudes, and ways of seeing oneself and others.

We are being “groomed” for the coming challenges in our world, challenges that intend to transform us more fully into the consciousness that is needed in a new paradigm and age.

Our level of empathy is growing, as is our ability to get more insight, to see all the connections and meaning, to open our hearts to more love, and to see beyond the programmed veils that have hidden truth. We also are becoming more empowered, more aligned with our true and authentic selves.

Of course for many this Eclipse Season has been quite difficult and challenging, and sometimes very painful.  But the potential gifts are transformation, expanded consciousness, and the aforementioned breakthroughs out of old stuck patterns and ruts.

If you can see this Eclipse Season, with its intensity and difficulty, as opportunities to transform; you will then possess the bigger picture that will facilitate positive transformation out of victim consciousness.

You know you want to leave old ways that have become limiting and often quite boring. But it can only happen if you are willing to leave your comfort zone, let in what likely feels more chaotic, and trust the process of the Universe and your deeper Soul.

Without that trust and faith, you will fall into darker, more cynical places- filled with great fear and rage.

You may then toxically empower yourself or disempower yourself from a place of the “wronged one”. You may then become a revenge perpetrator on others who you feel deserve it for what they have done. Or you will take away your life force and confidence.

There is no one to look down on or to make the enemy.   There is no one to look up to and make a god who we are separate from.

As we acknowledge and own all parts of ourselves, and integrate those parts into greater wholeness inside; we then make compassionate connection with all our human family.

No we do not have to be expert in this process, but we do need to be following the path to get there.  As we follow that path, we will get more and more opportunity to awaken, transform and go further in our consciousness and ways of living.

This is not meant to be a road to sainthood and you do not need to totally conquer anger or fear. These are normal human instincts and feelings, that in moderation help us to empower ourselves (anger) or be more careful (fear).

But over reacting  to situations that are not immediately dangerous to our health or life can be worked with, healed and transformed. Even serious trauma can be transformed into healthier responses with the right healing.

These Eclipse Seasons can be opportune times to break through old ways, as we are then often given situations that are intense, bring back old wounds or traumas, and thus are ripe for positive transformation.

As Mars and Mercury this week trigger the Total Solar Eclipse from August 21, core issues may intensify.  See this as part of the process of transformation, and you will not get pulled into emotional and mental places that have ego stories that have kept you stuck.

On Tuesday September 5 Mercury goes back Direct, which brings a turning point into renewed clarity and direction.

But this time Mercury Direct will be more complicated and confusing than usual, as the Sun opposes nebulous Neptune the night before; Mars enters Virgo on the 5th; and there is a Full Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune on the 6th at 3:03 AM EDT.

Mars in Virgo brings a critical eye seeking order, as does the Sun in Virgo at this Full Moon; but the Full Moon in Pisces may add to the confusion.

There is a need now to surrender, trust, and have faith all is happening as it should and for a reason. This attitude is aligned with the highest potential of a Pisces Full Moon.

If you see the glass of life as half full now, not half empty, you will then be more able to trust and have faith as needed.

Allow the process to unfold, without rigid agenda or tight mind and heart, and give a few days to a week to find the clarity and direction you need.

This Eclipse Season with Mercury Retrograde has had many people looking over their past, sometimes as if their past is flashing before their eyes.

That is because the death of the old and birth of the new is more powerful than usual.

And the shakeups in the world have been more intense than usual and have brought back old times and past issues.

Charlottesville brought back old hatreds and prejudice from the Civil War and Civil Rights movement.

North Korea has brought back fears and hatreds from the Cold War with Russia, and fears of nuclear annihilation.

Hurricane Harvey has reminded us of Katrina with its horrible death and destruction and Presidential cluelessness.

Trump’s whitehouse dramas have brought back memories of Richard Nixon corruption and impeachment proceedings.

All these events during Eclipse Season are here for us to remember our past, clean out the old, learn from that past, and transform and evolve further.

Abuse of power, prejudice, hatred, and feared enemies are all issues we need to transform in order to survive and evolve into what is needed for an Age of Aquarius.

And white men are not the enemy either, to be hated and looked down on.

Yes they are needing to leave their entitlement and old comfort place of power in America and the world.

That is happening and no one can stop it.  Equality and Diversity within Unity are happening right before our eyes, even if the wounded and dying old world bear who has ruled the old world is raging in his death throes.

He will bring down anyone on his way down, so get out of the way by staying out of his dramas, his rage and fears.  Your own rage and over reacting fears will bring you down too.

Important world events will continue now, and keep coming all year long.

But you can still keep strong focus and awareness on your own real life and its grounded rituals now.  Sun and Mars in Virgo will help you in than effort, as well as keeping your life simple.  Bring order to your life, fix what needs fixing, and that will keep you aligned with Virgo energy.  Get ready for Autumn, get the kids back to school.

The lion of Leo time roared, now the grounded humility of Virgo wants to take its place.

Take care,

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.

Leo
