By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are still in the throes of the powerful Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer opposite Pluto.   It has brought up much from the inner realms of feelings, emotions, fears, and old stories ready to be released.

The Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus on April 15 was the wake-up call for entry into a New Chapter of personal and collective life for the human family on Planet Earth.

A portal opened for new energies to flood into our consciousness and lives.

And now with the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer, we are moving further forward into this New Chapter; yet now we are being made more aware of what we need to release in order to truly move further forward.

Family issues have become more important to address now.   Who is truly your family? Soul families are also a reality, and it is growingly important to find and connect with members of our soul family.

And of course old family stories, wounds, and traumas are being pushed up to the surface of our consciousness so we can either resolve, heal, or release and let go of them.

Powerful emotions have been opened up at this Solar Eclipse in Cancer, making us more able to work with them, understand them, and to transform them into something that works for us- not against us.

Transformation, which Pluto is helping us with now, requires a death of old stories and beliefs, a death of an old version of who we were, and the birthing of a new version of who we are truly growing into now.

This process is often very painful, as we must feel again that which has caused us pain in the past. Therefore it is important to trace what you are going through now to earlier times of your life when you felt similarly.

If someone has now abandoned, rejected, or betrayed you, go back to when you felt this way before.

If you are currently feeling horrible about yourself now, go back to the earliest time you can remember when you felt this bad about yourself.  What events back then triggered your negative feelings about yourself?  What has triggered that now?

As you go back to remember and to associate what happened then to what is happening now, get in touch with whatever “story” you have been carrying with you as a result of these hurts or traumas.

Have you told your self you are unlovable?  Have you told yourself you never can do anything right?  Have you told yourself there is something wrong with you that people always find out about you? Have you told yourself all men are bad or irresponsible, etc.? Or all women are bad, etc?

Whatever the story,  learn how your can release it, as it is not true.  It was developed to explain bad situations that happened to you.  But now you are able to see the bigger picture, see what happened with more insight.  And now you can release the old beliefs and stories you have been carrying for so long.

As this Eclipse Season continues, with a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius on July 27; and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11, powers of transformation will continue to be strong.

That means old ways are breaking down, and new breakthroughs and awakenings will appear.

In the greater world, the old paradigm appears stronger than it is really is.  Trump represents to many a keeping of an old world and its ways alive and sometimes that seems so powerful.

The new ways, however, have gotten so much stronger over the last several years, with worldwide connections with those who are different from us; inclusive attitudes toward those who were previously considered outcasts likes LGBTQ and people of color; holistic approaches to health and happiness; new spiritual ways of seeing beyond the old limits; an understanding that all is connected in a Universe governed by love and truth; and a knowing that we live in a meaningful world, not one of random chance and survival of the fittest mentality.

We must each keep our eye on the true direction of evolution and transformation of consciousness into an Age of Aquarius.

It is most important to keep from being controlled and defeated by your fears now.  There are a large group of souls who are feeling powerless in the face of the world and its leaders now. This attitude gives away our power.

Your destiny is between you and the Universe, not you and Trump or Republicans.  If you demonize them you give them more power and yourself less.   They will come and go just as did Nixon or even Hitler. I am not comparing, just showing how everything passes. and is not all powerful as it seems.

I know we are in the transition between ages, and that this New Chapter of the transition period is a most difficult one.  Much is ready to break down soon, and that break down will open up Pandora’s box of ugly emotions and actions.

Find your connection with the Universe and with your Soul Self now. Those connections will show you all connections and show you what you need to do and the way you need to go now.

So much is changing for all of us, and we are being challenged to keep on our soul’s path and to make changes that are necessary in order to stay on that path- whether that means changing homes, jobs, relationships, etc. Or for some it means giving up ideas of changing homes or relationship and instead settling into what you now have.

It is important now to know what is home and who is your true family.  At this Cancer Eclipse, we are pointed to knowing these connections to home and “family”.

It will give us a foundation and place of nurturance needed to hold our growth, evolution, and movement forward now.

In the greater world the American Culture War is getting more intense. We each need to do our best to understand where people who see different than us are coming from. Again do not demonize.  Their fears and needs for self preservation are likely driving their choices.

The Middle East is on the verge of being lit up with conflict.  Iran versus Israel is at the root of this potential conflict. And both of their country’s charts are triggered heavily by the next two eclipses. Syria, Gaza, Iraq, Russia, USA, and Lebanon are likely participants in the conflict.

This will likely cause many world event dominoes to fall as a result.

Keep in mind that we are living in a world and national system that is so toxic and dysfunctional, and need not long continue.  Yet those who are its “guardians” will fight tooth and nail to perpetuate its existence.

And as much is released from all the chaos, the path to a new age gets more clear and open.

We each need to find our place in this transition between ages, and it is necessary to keep the faith and keep up our spiritual practices.

I will have another video made in early August

Till next week,

Leo

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer and Astrology Forecast July 8-14

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 7, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Powerful and gusty winds are gathering now, so to speak. We are getting ourselves ready for the upcoming stormy eclipses.  There are 3 of them this summer .

The first one is this week on Thursday July 12 at 10:48 PM EDT.   It is a partial Lunar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer.  At the same time, Guardian of the Underworld Pluto will be making an almost exact opposition to that eclipsed New Moon.  The New Moon is at 20+ degrees of Cancer, while Pluto will be at 20+ degrees of Capricorn that day: a potential perfect storm.

The sign Cancer is an archetypal Mother, of the Divine Feminine,   It can be very nurturing and protective, with desire to take care of others.  It must, however, make sure not to hover over with over-protectiveness.

By contrast Pluto in Capricorn is a powerful force penetrating deeply into the core of something or someone, and making things passionate and Real. It must make sure to not be “too real” or destructive. But it does need to be destructive enough to put to rest a dying Chapter of life; and that makes room for a Phoenix to rise up with new life.

So this Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer this week is like a strongly protected  cocoon or womb. And Pluto in Capricorn is like a ruthless energy that wants to destroy the protective shell that has held back spirit, life and passion.

It is soon time to begin the process of leaving the Garden of protection, to cut the umbilic cord, to  rise up with the dawning.

Pluto sitting  opposite this Solar Eclipse in Cancer will provide a reality check for our individual lives, our families, and certainly the United States.

That which is outliving its intended life span,  whether that is a soul, an object, and most importantly a passing chapter of one’s life, will be challenged to let go and allow the death which precedes the birth.

If a couple has finished raising their child, who is now ready to embark on their life journey, they now are in a transition between two Chapters of their lives.

And so it is best if they look to see if there is a new “contract” to create a continued life together- or not.

In the greater world, we are experiencing a death of the old America, contrary to the MAGA culture that believes we will return to a time that has passed us by quite naturally.

That death is not going to be any easy one, as some of  the “guardians” of the old world will lie, cheat, and steal in order to keep the old country and world paradigm alive and with continued privilege.

No matter how we view the people from the MAGA world, we need to listen, not dismiss and feel hatred for.

We do not need to build a world that will then abuse power the same way. it has been.  White men, corporate ways, etc. are not the enemy.

The “enemy” is the part inside each of us that unfairly judges others, who are different than us,  and seeks to make some people better or worse than others.

So now, early this week we are in the waning part of the lunar cycle. It is a time to let go of what we need to let go.

Last quarter Moons, especially when close to the New Moon, are perfect times to release and let go.  What are you ready to shed in your life, what has outlived its purpose?

While still in the last quarter Moon phase, Jupiter changes from Retrograde to Direct Tuesday July 10.

You should get an energetic boost from this, even before the Solar Eclipse New Moon on the 12th.

Jupiter in Scorpio tends to expand into more passion and intensity, igniting one’s deeper soul and instincts. Just be careful not to set yourself up for any abuses again or to be abusive yourself.

Scorpio is power, and Jupiter in Scorpio can certainly help one to be more empowered and passionately assertive.

That Jupiter movement to Direct will expand Jupiter’s influence, yet the main course is still the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer.

Be careful to make boundaries around your emotions, not to lose your center and integrity.

The culture wars have been heating up, and will certainly boil over during Eclipse Season.

When you look at the people in leadership roles in our country and world it looks pretty bad.

I know it feels frightening sometimes to contemplate the old world and its economy crashing and burning. Would you choose instead keeping this world Trump wants to build?

What if crash and burn is the only way we can rid ourselves of selfish ego driven leaders and soul dead institutions and people, and can transform our human condition, our environment, and our way of treating one another, would you want it that way?

We are looking potentially at a great amount of chaos if all falls down. And if it doesn’t, the tyrant loving president of the USA may build a walled-in America that would be really difficult to transform. And it would become a military/corporate world even worse than the current military/corporate world.

We are at a major American and world crossroads.  One way or another we are on the precipice of major American and world transformation.

Israel, Palestine, North Korea, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Syria are lands that are in  danger and in flux. So much is coming to a head now in these places.

The economy, with over priced bubble homes, poor health care programs, school debt that is really depressing for many,  and rampant greed, needs huge change.

And much will shake up during Summer Eclipse Season.

Keep up the meditation so you can stay connected and centered during this Eclipse Season.

Have you noticed how veils are being lifted in consciousness,  and how visitors, apparently from other dimensions, are sneaking into meditation more and more?

We are not merely witnessing the Fall of the Empire.  We can also open our hearts and minds to other realities, realities aligned with the Age of Aquarius we are moving into together.

If we do not let fear, hatred, cynicism, and politics keep us down, we allow ourselves to open doors and windows into new consciousness and new possibilities.

Be discerning who you spend your time with. Do they really see you and appreciate you?  Do they suck your life spirit like a vampire?  Do they constantly pull on you to give them what they want from you?  Do they make fun of your spirituality?

It is important we each protect ourselves from toxic energy.

Take the ride of this Summer Eclipse Season 2018.  Keep yourself centered inside and open to what your soul and the Universe wants to show you.

Till next week,

Leo

Settling in to New Reality and Astrology Forecast May 6-12

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 5, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The light of the silvery Moon fades more and more now, as the current lunar cycle enters its 4th and last quarter phase on Monday May 7 this week.  The Moon enters the last quarter while in Aquarius.

That means that the dimming night light in the sky is lit up best now with thoughts of a more socially conscious world intending to serve all the Earth’s community.

Our thoughts and feelings and visions have much influence on the evolving collective consciousness of our human family here on Earth.

Our ancestors believed that the gods and goddesses of the planets ruled our lives as non negotiable fate.

And back then most also believed that the kings and queens who ruled the real world also fatalistically determined our human fate.

We have since been evolving our collective consciousness into a new perspective that sees “we the people” as rulers of our own world.

When Uranus, ruling planet of Aquarius, was discovered in 1781; there were two important revolutions igniting on Planet Earth: The American and French revolutions.

Both of these revolutions sought to overthrow the dominance of royalty, so individual humans would rule their own world.

And since then, through democratic institutions, such rule by the people has been attempted in many places across the world.

And this same attitude of human empowerment has been growing in relationship to planetary rulers too, as the planets were envisioned as connected to the gods and goddesses as in Jupiter, Venus, etc.

We humans have been learning about creating our own world, of course within the framework of planetary movements.

Yes the planets bring us energies that are real and need to be recognized and respected.  Yet we have been learning to co-create with these divine symbols from our heavens.

Just as weather systems bring in certain energies and configurations into our daily lives, we as humans choose our response to these systems and storms. And of course we have built shelters and damns and other structures to help us with these weather systems..

We now are at a huge turning point in our evolution toward creating our own world, in conjunction with what the Universe brings to us.

The Age of Aquarius is about developing a world community that is governed by “we the people” who are intrinsically equal in value to one another. That paradigm will naturally create a  world of Diversity Within Unity.

So this turning point in our human development means we must take full responsibility for our world, and be proactive in the downfall of Empire, Dictators, Presidents, Kings, Queens, Corporations, and Military that have heretofore dominated our existence and have been destroying the Earth and oceans, wildlife, and Universal values like love and truth that keep our souls, spirits, bodies, and lives healthy, vibrant and alive.

The craziness, ugliness, corruption, lies, and deceit that are so evident in the world now are part of the decay of the old world.

That decay is picking up speed and we are all feeling it in our own lives too. Our relationships, families, jobs, and sense of security are going through huge transformation now.  Everything is not the same as it was anymore.

We are all needing to grow and evolve now into realms that take us out of our comfort zones.

This is not doom and gloom developing; it is instead an opportunity to be better than ever before. But it sure can feel pretty bad sometimes in this transformational process to get to the better places.

So this week we move into the dimming Moon of the last quarter, which ends at the New Moon in Taurus on May 15.

Best now to slow down and not push hard for any agenda.

Tuesday could be the most intense day this week as the Sun opposes Jupiter in Scorpio.

And at the end of the week, Moon, Mercury and Uranus in Aries square up with Mars in Capricorn.  That is potentially the most  combative time this coming week.

Many events that are connected to the recent opening of the portal in mid April will continue to pour in.  We are in a New Chapter of our personal and collective lives now and the new events are reflective of a “new normal” that is developing.

The Trump decision on Iran; opening of USA embassy in Jerusalem;  and meeting of Trump and Kim of North Korea all happen in May and June.  The results will help define what this New Chapter will be like in the global world.

All is leading up to a very powerful Eclipse Season in July and August, when there are 3 eclipses in a row. That is when Pandora’s Box will break open with many world events.

Iran, Israel, Syria, and Russia are all closely connected to these coming eclipses, and powerful events involving these countries are quite likely.

There is a Solar Eclipse in Cancer closely opposed by Pluto in Capricorn on July 12;  a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius that forms a strong fixed T-square with Mars and Uranus on July 27; and another Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 11 that is square Jupiter in Scorpio.

All this will be happening with Mars and Mercury Retrograde during much of that Eclipse Season.

Of course we will explain much more as we get closer to that Eclipse Season.

Remember that everything is happening meaningfully, and is part of our transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

We humans have the ability to co-create now;  and we will be at our best if we are in integrity with the higher values of the heavens of the Universe, while honoring the values of the essential and primal movements of Nature and Earth, our Home.

Use the time this week, during the 4th quarter Moon, to get your bearings, to get yourself and your life “together”, and to get ready for the next lunar cycle at the New Moon in Taurus on May 15.

Till next week,

Leo

Wesak and Beltane and Astrology Forecast April 29- May 5

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 28, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Early this week there is a sacred yearly full moon, the Wesak Full Moon.

Every springtime it happens with the Moon in Scorpio and Sun directly opposite in Taurus.  This year it is on April 29 at 8:58 PM EDT.

People celebrate this Wesak Full Moon as Buddha’s birthday. He was said to be born on the Wesak Full Moon.

And lore has it that on the same day in a different year Buddha found enlightenment. Then on that same day again in a different year Buddha faced his death.

So you can see why so many, especially Buddhists, treat the Wesak Full Moon as a holy day.

In planetary terms this Wesak Full Moon is always a Scorpio Full Moon, so with the Sun in Taurus directly opposite the Moon in Scorpio there is a tension between calm solidity (Taurus) and intense passion (Scorpio).

Taurus and Scorpio are both “fixed” signs. Taurus is fixed Earth (body) and Scorpio is fixed water (soul).

They both can be quite stubborn.   Taurus tends to hold onto what it has possessed and Scorpio holds onto feelings, especially feelings that have resulted from having been hurt by someone.

Taurus avoids intense emotional expressions which Scorpio often shows; and Scorpio does not like the often passionless Taurus behavior.

But when in balance they are great compliments to one another:  Taurus calms and grounds the intensity of Scorpio, and Scorpio brings some spiciness and passion to Taurus.

Since they are both fixed signs, there can sometimes be a tug of war between them, with neither giving up.

A couple days after the Wesak Full Moon, there is annual Beltane. It is on May 1st and it is the mid point between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice.

At  that midpoint, there are often feelings of optimism, as nature is turning away from Spring and toward Summer.

Beltane is considered a day of fertility, and people have traditionally moved around a maypole, signifying the dance between male and female energies.

So use this week, with Beltane and Wesak, to celebrate this beautiful time of year in the Northern Hemisphere, when nature is beginning to show its beauty.

Meditate, enjoy nature and body pleasures this week. This break is sorely needed for all of us, as there has been so much changing, shifting, and transforming.

The Scorpio Full Moon may be rather intense, especially following the Mars/Pluto conjunction late last week.  But soon after the Full Moon, the emotional climate should begin to shift from primal intensity toward more upliftment, as The Moon will be in Sagittarius most of Beltane and continuing into the 2nd and 3rd of May.

Out in the greater world, North and South Korea are bringing the world more optimism as they make promises to have peace between them.

But North Korea’s Kim Jong Un will meet Trump in late May or June for a Summit to try to resolve tensions on the Korean peninsula.

We shall see if that meeting adds to the optimism or begins to drag us into war cries again.

The Middle East holds the most possibility for great conflict as Trump will open up a USA embassy in Jerusalem in mid May, and he will also likely put a stop to the Obama and world agreement with Iran. He will likely do that by putting sanctions back on Iran. That decision also happens in mid May. There are so many countries involved in Syria, it would not take much for it to ignite into something big

So now after the Portal was opened at the Aries New Moon on April 15, we watch all the important world events come pouring through that portal. There are many more to come.

And you know you have entered a whole New Chapter of your own life.    As we get farther away from the New Moon Portal of April 15, you get more and more clear about what is manifesting in this New Chapter for you.

We have all been releasing what needs to be let go of, and as the process of letting go calms down now, we will see more clearly what is being formed as a result.  Letting go, releasing and purging, opens up space to let the new in.

Many of us have felt we have been caught between worlds or chapters of our life- the old no longer exists, yet the new not formed or in some cases not even envisioned yet.

But the shift has happened, and from now on we will get more clear about what is coming, both personally and globally.

This process of moving forward will accelerate in June, July, August.  In July/August there will be 3 eclipses in a row, and usually there are only 2 in a row.

Both Mercury and Mars will be retrograde during much of that Eclipse Season, adding to the complexity of that Season.

Remember that the old world and paradigm will suffer even more at the Fall of Rome again. It fell at the beginning of the Age of Pisces and falls again at the end of the Age of Pisces.

The reality of Empires and Superpowers is dying as the Pisces Age dies.  The new paradigm of Diversity within Unity comes with the Age of Aquarius, as power is more equally distributed.

The old form of Capitalism will die too, as there is plenty of wealth to be spread all over the globe for all the people. Now there is too much disparity between the mega wealthy and suffering poor.

Is it OK to perpetuate an economic system that rewards those whose talent is to make money, and punishes those who cannot develop riches? Do you realize how many talented, creative, spiritual and idealistic people we are losing in this world because their highest priority needs to be making money.

Greed pays  off in this system, as does domination and abuse of power.

We are in the process of transforming this system in America and all over the world.

New light, love and truth are trying to move through the cracks of the system’s concrete structure.  Those cracks will open wider soon, especially so during the next Eclipse Season in July and August.

The Portal opened on April 15, and the energies creating the Age of Aquarius will continue to look for openings in all of us.

Transformation is our reality now, so do not be afraid of how the world is looking at times now.

Humans often think they rule the Universe and Earth.  The Universe and Earth laugh. We will not destroy the Earth or the Heavens.

The cycles, planets, and seasons keep turning no matter what we do. But we sure can make our own lives to suffer, and we sure are capable of destroying ourselves.

Concentrate on your own evolution of consciousness and on spreading your light, truth and love to all you come in contact with. That is what saves the world.

Till next week,

Leo

Pluto Releasing the Old and Astrology Forecast April 22-28

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

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

Mercury Retrograde, Spring Equinox and Astrology Forecast March 18-24

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 17, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week with Mars entering Capricorn, New Moon  in Pisces, Spring Equinox and Mercury Retrograde.

This means the energy fields we move within are changing this week.  The changes will shift our consciousness and lives in preparation for the Portal Opening on April 15.

It is obvious now that the greater world and culture we reside within is in a chaotic and not so predictable state of being.   The White House is reflective of this state of being, and it is in shambles, and always in some sort of transition.

And of course whether you feel in alignment with the new Administration or not, this Administration and its volatility are a symbol of the condition of the USA right now.

The Stock Market and economy; the Mueller probe; the porn actress’s accusations; the growing dangers with Iran, Syria, Israel, North Korea; the trade wars; and the macho strutting with Russia and China put all of us on our toes waiting for even greater changes.

We are in the midst of an enormous transformation of the country and world.

Trump is not causing the chaotic climate that makes us ripe for such transformation. He is instead a lead actor on the world stage, just the right actor to help facilitate world events that will take us to the edge of darkness,  so we can call on the Phoenix who will rise from the ashes of our old paradigm’s burning.

Some are already getting into survivalist mode, while others not as alarmed are  still being called to make changes in their consciousness and lives, changes that are aligned with the world we are moving into.

Others of us are not sure what direction to move toward, and are seemingly waiting for events to unfold to show the way.

The next few weeks will not show us clear direction, however, especially so because Mercury is going Retrograde on March 22 at 8:19 PM EDT.

As usual the ‘re’s will in charge during Mercury Retrograde: rewind, reflect, readjust, rebalance, remind, realign.

There is much processing to do now, as it is not time now to move toward bottom line decisions and even bottom line logical answers.

Allow Mercury Retrograde to have you go inward to reflect, to question what has been previously understood or decided, to bring to you memories of the past and to bring back people to you from your past.

The people from the past will likely not stay with you after they return, though sometimes they do.  The questioning of previous understandings and decisions does not mean you will truly change your direction from what you have chosen, but sometimes it does.

The New Moon in Pisces this Saturday the 17th was at 9:12 AM EDT.  Though it is a New Moon, Pisces is not a sign of action to move forward.

Pisces brings everything together in integration and unity, to get ready for the movement forward later, this time after the New Moon in Aries on April 15.

Pisces is the sign for the last month of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the transition sign for moving into new beginnings of Spring.

As such we now do soul searching, shadow integration, and getting in touch with deeper feelings;  especially feelings of sadness and grief, of fading memories, of snapshots of previously not remembered early life events.

We face ghosts of the past,  want to resolve old issues, and hopefully find some closure.

This Pisces time we are doing even deeper soul diving than usual, wanting to gather everything together in anticipation of the coming forward movement in our lives, collectively and personally.

There may be some energetic confusion as we also experience the beginning of spring this week.  It is on Tuesday March 20 at 12:15 PM EDT.

This is the first moment of the Sun’s movement into Aries, as it does to begin every Spring Equinox.

Aries is the force of new life buds bursting through the branches. It is a baby being born, a teenager’s awkward movement form childhood to adulthood.  It is a new challenge, a competition, showing a new way, standing up for yourself or what you believe in, being brave even when you are afraid,  fighting the good fight, self assertion, self honoring, alpha attitude, and taking action.

The confusion may come from the fact that Mercury is going Retrograde and there is a need to process and rewind before truly moving forward.

So use this Spring Equinox Aries entry to begin to wake yourself up! Winter is over, even if the weather still feels like Winter.  The turning point energetically is happening this week, so get in touch with that energy and wake your self from the doldrums of Winter, from being kinda depressed from such a harsh and difficult winter.

No need to go fast forward, just wake up. Soon there will be the need for action and for fresh events to manifest. But not now. Even action oriented Mars is being affected by the gravity of Capricorn now.

It moved into Capricorn on the 17th at the New Moon in Pisces. It will stay in Capricorn until May 16, when it goes into Aquarius.

But this year Mars will go back into Capricorn from mid August till Mid September.

The reason is because Mars goes Retrograde on June 26, then retraces its previous steps.

Mars in Capricorn takes away the spontaneous and sometimes impulsive instinct of Mars.

Mars puts on a uniform of military or police when in Capricorn, giving it discipline and boundaries, rules and structure to act within.

So with Mars now in Capricorn, it is time to ground your actions, to make goals and commitments, to organize and plan, to make manifest.

Just remember that we are in Mercury Retrograde until April 15, so there may be some confusion till then, and if you are not that confused, you will still need to wait before manifesting or making absolute statements.

After April 15 the train of our lives starts it engines, but remember that Mercury will just begin to be Direct that day, so total clarity may still need to form, and movement will still not be fast forward. Big events will likely be a few weeks or a few months away then.

So with all this knowledge look at the country and world.  The White House will still be rearranging the deck chairs of its Titanic voyage.

There  will be more employee firings and hirings this coming month, more drama and confusion, more setting the stage for coming events.

Trump is planning to meet with Kim Jong Un in April or May; the USA is moving its embassy to Jerusalem in May. Other important world events will spring forward in April, May and later this year.

Your life and consciousness are working out  what needs to be worked out now. Do your best not to judge your self now or what you did or didn’t do in the past.

Let go of old stories that keep you stuck.  Let go of old stories that make you feel like a victim or loser or failure or horrible person.

The past, no matter what it was, is a stepping stone for your life as it grows and transforms into one of purpose and authenticity, one of love and forgiveness.

Love yourself from all time periods and ages of your life. Have compassion for your self, for the seeming mistakes you might have made. Forgive yourself and others as best you can organically.

It is almost time for us all to move forward more fully into this New Chapter of our lives on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

And the less baggage we take with us from our past the better.  No you will not be able to tie a pretty bow on all those traumas and disappointments, disillusions and heart wounds.

But you can forgive, learn to trust enough, and have faith all happens with meaning.

You can gain enough closure to be able to move forward. But do not despair if all has not been worked out to total satisfaction. It never is perfect.

Till next week,

Leo
