All In This Together and Astrology Forecast May 14-20.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 13, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we move past the Wesak Scorpio Full Moon from May 10, we experience the waning half of the lunar cycle that was begun at the Taurus New Moon on April 26.

This current lunar cycle ends at the Gemini New Moon on May 25.

So now as we move downward with the waning Moon, we process all that has been happening since April 26.

The 4th and last quarter of the Taurus lunar cycle happens on Thursday May 18, with the Moon in Aquarius.

Even more processing energy is then available, as well as needs to finish things up, and use more of our detached thinking abilities (Moon in Aquarius).

Moving out of concentration on the physical plane and into more mental concentration will continue as the Sun moves into Gemini on May 20, and then with the New Moon in Gemini on May 25.

Until then the trend is still toward nature, our bodies, the Earth, as well as security, money, physical pleasures and physical resources.

This time concentrating on the physical plane grounds us and grounds our recent ideas, intentions, and visions.

We have slowed down and it has been easier to stay present and pay attention to our surroundings.

Possessions are also important for Taurus and they will hold on for dear life to what they want to keep in their lives, including people.

As we move into Gemini energies and experience, we will find it easier to let go and be more flexible, especially mentally.

Gemini is a mutable air sign, and just using that as a metaphor can give you a sense of what that means.

Everything is lighter and one is more open to thoughts, ideas, information, and communications that stream in and out.  Changing one’s mind is easier to do during Gemini times.

Donald Trump is a Sun in Gemini and it is obvious how often he changes his mind and policies.

For instance he had stated clearly before he was elected that the USA should not intervene in other countries’ affairs like we did in Iraq and Libya. He said we should not fight Syria, but instead put all our concentration on the Islamic State.

Then he decides to bomb Syria when he receives uncollaborated information that Syria used chemical weapons against its own people.

We will not be able to know what he will do next on most any issue, as his ideas will keep changing.  His ethics are totally situational, as they are for many Geminis.

There is not a tendency toward firm foundational mental structures composed of firm ideas and principles.  Instead their minds are changeable and fluid.

Of course this mental fluidity can be great for fast thinking, and tends to be open minded to new ideas and ways of perceiving things.

But it also can be clever at turning and spinning words deceptively.  It may not always be conscious of the fact that it is lying or deceiving.

And of course this open mind will be valuable when new information becomes available, like with Extraterrestrials or Star People, or with investigations into cases that were previously and apparently solved and carved in the stone of set opinion.

But in Trump’s case, his narcissism may need him to spin toward what is favorable to his image of himself and to what he wants to believe, and what he wants us to believe.

He is not a “normal” Gemini, but instead a flawed and unbalanced one.  When someone is flawed or deeply traumatized or with mental and emotional imbalance; they will respond in the worst way of what a sign can be.

For instance Leo is a sign of heartfelt, authentic creative expression. It shines a light of hope and happiness.  That is at its best.

At its worst Leo is totally self centered, dominating, and even narcissistic. It places a high priority on its image and popularity.

Bill Clinton, a Sun in Leo, is a good example of someone who expresses both the highest and lowest potential of what a Leo can be.

Donald Trump has Leo as his rising sign, and his Mars is in Leo conjunct that Ascendent.

When the August Total Solar Eclipse New Moon erupts in August this year, Trump’s Leo tendencies will be heightened because that Eclipse is closely conjunct both his Mars and Rising sign .

His aggressively defensive ego (Mars in Leo) will be triggered by some world event and/or person. And he will then very likely overreact to the situation causing some major experience and drama.

The USA, Israel, North Korea, and Syria will also have important natal planets very closely triggered by that eclipse. This August will be a very important turning point month for world affairs.

We are all so closely connected in so many ways now to peoples all over the world with mass transportation, international commerce, and international communication systems that relatively recently includes social media too.

Just yesterday 99 countries were affected by someone who hacked Microsoft software. Hospital systems and other important systems suffered as a result.  Real innocent people were also greatly affected as a result of this hack.

There will be more events that awaken us more to the fact that we are all so closely connected to one another in this world.

While we have connected so well through media and commerce and other ways, in human to human relations we have not done so well.

Too many of us still make foe or enemy of those who are different: different nation, race, sexual orientation, gender, political affiliation, or religion.

We have a long way to go before we deeply acknowlege we are all of the same family here on Earth.

What will it take for us to evolve to this place of Diversity within Unity, the consciousness needed to enter the Age of Aquarius?

Will we experience an even more devastating computer failure, one that breaks down our usual ways to survive and thrive every day? How about a World War?  Maybe mass communication from some person or group who wants to take over the world or who tell us they are a Savior(s)?  Or maybe a worldwide seen Visitation from other dimensions or planets?

We are quite a ways from having enough people in Age of Aquarius consciousness.   Will the December 2020 date I see as a marking point in our journey to an Age of Aquarius show us enough people in that consciousness to give us hope we have entered the gateway?

This week, however, will be rather tame in comparison to those aforementioned potential events.

Use this week to ground your self and your life, to maybe bring more together what has been your past.   You can then be in better position to more completely embrace this New Chapter of our personal and collective lives on Planet Earth.

This is an important year in our evolution.

Till next week,

Leo

Full Moon in Scorpio and Astrology Forecast May 7-13

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 6, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The relational planets Mercury and Venus will be rather comfortably back Direct this week.   Relational issues should be better defined, and direction easier to discern.

I know that while Mercury was changing directions last week back from Retrograde to Direct, for some that meant some confusion or craziness.  Mercury is known as a trickster planet, and it can be at its trickiest when changing directions.

We are certainly in a whole New Chapter of life, the election of Donald Trump making that fact more obvious.

So many people are divided from one another, not seeing the connections very easily anymore.  Yet at the same time, the connections are there if you are in the proper head and heart place inside your self.  In fact energies that bring everything together are stronger than ever.

At the same time, a large group of people are taking walled-in sides against one another, see others as foes or enemies, or at least see others as “those people”:  democrats versus republicans; America versus North Korea or Russia or Iran; women versus men; Judeo-Chrisians versus Muslims; whites versus blacks; hetero versus homosexual, etc.

Perhaps we should have night fight day or cold fight hot?  If you look at a ying/yan symbol you will see opposites of black and white joined together in a circle.

This is how it is meant to be.  Opposites are part of the same whole.  There was a time when democrats fought republicans for what they each thought was right and best for the country.

But they still knew they were both together as Americans wanting to do what is best for the community.

Now these groups no longer seem connected in the circle.  They represent two cultures at war with one another, and as a result very little gets accomplished for the best of the people of this country and world.

The Civil War was a time when two very different American cultures went to war with one another, as there was no connecting bridge between them.

And so much in America and in the greater world is that same way now.  So much seems to be falling apart as a result.

Yet ironically the spiritual movement toward connection of all is at its strongest.  More and more people are waking up to the knowing of that circle that connects us all.

Still there are wide differences of opinion and ways of life, but the knowing we are nevertheless joined as one whole family is keeping the circle from splitting apart.

Empathy is the most important quality needed to keep the circle intact.  When we only focus on ourselves, without also feeling where someone else is at, we break the circle.

That does not mean you give your self away or make your needs less importnant than someone else.

Instead you keep your individual integrity while realizing someone else is different and needs different things. Even if you cannot live with a person anymore, you still recognize they are not wrong- just different.

If we keep seeing everything from a winner/loser or superior/inferior or ultimately judgmental view, we break that circle and create a drama that makes everyone miserable.

Sports is a good outlet for winner/loser contests and dramas, but everyday relationships are a really bad way to have competitions or wars.

It is true that sometimes Scorpio or Aries energies are prone to go there, but it does not have to become a “fight to the death” battle between people.  Hash it out intensely, but come back to the circle of connection at least inside your self.

At the same time, don’t let that empathic connection to that other person change your resolve for independence or empowerment.

Every important realtionship in our lives came to us for a meaningful reason.  When we have to let each other go, that original meaning is a connecting thread between you- even after you part.

That sense of meaning brings the circle together.

This week there is a Full Moon in Taurus/Scorpio on Wednesday May 10 at 5:42 PM EDT.

This annual full moon is called the Wesak Full Moon.  Some say it reflects when the Buddha was born.

At its best the Sun in Taurus represents solid, secure, comfortable calm.  At its best the Moon in Scorpio represents depth of feeling, insightfulness and passion.

At its worst Taurus represents stubborn holding on, greed, and lack of passion; while Scorpio at its worst represents rage, insane jealousy, and vindictiveness.

Inside yourself this Full Moon will best serve you if you are able to find a balance between passion and calm,  between powerful emotion and rock solid groundedness.

This full moon sometimes brings with it tugs of war between people, and sometimes it brings up issues of money or other resources.

This full moon has some potential also to shake things up as Mercury conjuncts Uranus in Aries and the Sun trines Pluto the day before.

This full moon also has the potential to bring some magic and otherworldly elements as Mars squares Neptune the day after the full moon.  Life may also feel out of control or confusing the few days surrounding these events.

On Friday May 12 Mars trines Jupiter.  This is a good time to get new ideas, to be inspired, to talk things out.

There may also be a tendency to talk alot or take in an overwhelming amount of information.

Let spirit take you but do your best not to leap before you look.

Remember again that our individual lives want to change and transform, as our global world is transforming also.

Stay aware of what needs to be released in the process of change, and what you need to hold onto, if you can, for the sake of some stability.

Winds of change will pick up appreciably this summer, so allow yourself some flexibility so the Universe can more gracefully move through you in ways that are needed.

Mercury Direct and Astrology Forecast April 30- May 6

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 29, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

One or the other of the two main relationship and communication planets have been retrograde since March 4.   This week when Mercury goes back Direct again, both will be back in their usual forward motion.

Mercury is a planet of mind and communication.  As many of you have experienced, when Mercury is retrograde we may readjust our thinking and perceptions, rethink the directions in life we have chosen, and rewind to previous times in our life.

Together, Venus and Mercury have been readjusting our relationships, making us more aware of what we say and how we say it, and perhaps even shifting our attitudes and beliefs around money and material resources.

Now with both of them back Direct, there is the beginning of gaining more clarity and direction in our thinking and with our relationships.

Some of you during this Retrograde period have been re-evaluating your relationships and chronic patterns in your relationships.  Some of you have experienced a crisis that has forced you to make serious changes in your relationships or relationship patterns.

This is not only about romantic relationships but also about platonic friendships, family and work relationships.

Do you tend to give your power away?  Are you now more commited to speaking your truth and not sacrificing and giving too much.

Relationships are meant to be give and take, with both people giving and receiving from one another.  If you are doing much more giving than receiving, it is like breathing out and not breathing in, metaphorically speaking.

These patterns of giving more than receiving can be seen in a natal chart, yet also are “inherited” from family conditioning,  programming into women from society,  and acting out of guilt from religion.

The more a person is centered in their heart while in relationship balance with their mind, the better able they are to have healthy give and take relationships.

Now with both Mercury and Venus back Direct, we can move forward with enough knowledge and information to know what to do with our relationships.

The actual day of Mercury Direct is Wednesday May 3 at 12:33 PM EDT.   It will then slowly get back to speed, so for a week or so after it goes back Direct clarity and direction will be unfolding.   You will be better at making decisions, and better prepared for initiating new projects.

Also this week on Monday May 1 there is Beltane, an ancient celebration of relationship, fertility, and relationship balance.   Moving around a maypole is an old tradition of Beltane.

Interestingly, it synchronizes this year with the recently Direct motion of Venus and Mercury now going back Direct.

Relationships on the global stage are shifting and changing also.  The USA connections with North Korea, China, Russia, and the Middle East are in the process of big change.

The way it will now shake out is very important to world peace or war.

People often ask how much influence our individual and collective intention and prayer have on world affairs.

There is a thin line between what is meant to be and what we can create through our human consciousness and actions. This is what co-creation is all about.

It is worth our time and effort to focus our loving energies toward world affairs.  Even if we are not able to shift the direction the world is moving toward, putting more love in the world will always work toward making our human experience better and better.

No matter what happens, we are in the process of deep transformation of our consciousness and lives on the way to an Age of Aquarius.

The transition time between an Age of Pisces and an Age of Aquarius is powerful.  Yes there are birth pains that will show through difficult world events and challenging personal life events, but there will also be more and more awakenings, more portals opening for greater love and truth, and more magic and synchronicity.

There is a pull toward staying in old consciousness that will be helped if you give into fear or rage.  There is also more inspiration to move into new consciousness as you trust in love balanced with truth, trust the Universe, and trust in the wisdom of your own soul and body.

The movement toward the Age of Aquarius is getting stronger and stronger, even as Rome is burning, so to speak.

I believe that December 2020 will be an important marker for the official dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

In the meantime, we will be experiencing a most intense and tumultuous part of the transition between ages.

This August 2017 will bring a major turning point in our collective Soul’s journey into the New Age.

There will then be two eclipses, the second one most important and powerful.  It is a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo, covering the whole of the United States. It triggers planets in the natal charts of Donald Trump, the USA, Syria, Israel, and North Korea.

I am sure we will all be challenged to stay on our paths toward more love and truth in our lives.  The pull toward fear and old attitudes and beliefs will be strong.   So we will need to keep our focus, our center, and our alignment with the Universe.

The current lunar cycle, begun at the New Moon in Taurus, is still waxing toward a Full Moon, which will be on May 10 in Scorpio.

So now, especially after Mercury goes Direct on May 3, we are getting more clear in our minds and hearts and directed to moving forward with our lives.

Be attentive to the fact that often the time surrounding Mercury changing directions can feel strange while at the same time feeling a sense of relief.

Till next week,

Leo

Love and Truth and Astrology Forecast April 23- 29

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 22, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving through the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the Aries New Moon on March 27.

Important events that could lead to more explosive events erupted during this Aries lunar cycle.

Russia, Iran, North Korea, United States, Syria, and Israel are all very triggered by these recent events.  Actually the whole world may be affected ultimately by these events.

So during the 4th quarter we review what has happened during the Aries lunar cycle, and get ready for new beginnings at the New Moon in Taurus this Wednesday April 26.

What has opened up for you personally since March 27?   What are you needing to move into more fully, or move on from? What still needs to be healed and transformed?

Mercury is still Retrograde and Venus was Retrograde during much of this lunar cycle, till April 15 when Venus went back Direct.

What has been happening in your important relationships?  Have you been taken back to old patterns you thought you had moved beyond.

Do you now have more clarity about those relationships?

If not keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde until May 3, when it goes back Direct. Total clarity may have to wait until then or more likely a week or so after it goes back direct.

Big decisions that will importantly affect your life would be better off waiting until then.

More pull to “how it used to be” may continue for you.  Do your best to resist feeling your old reality is your reality again.

You may be revisiting old places in your Old Chapter of life, so you can better know what your New Chapter needs are.

There is a process of integration of the past going on, so you do not forget “where you came from”.

There will be a feeling of moving forward more at the New Moon in Taurus on April 26 at 8:16 AM EDT.

Taurus takes in, manifests in reality, and then holds onto tightly.

So whatever was begun during the Aries lunar cycle will tend to take hold after the Taurus New Moon.   If that which began in the Aries cycle has no real “life” to it, it will not take hold.  It will not be made manifest.

Looking at the recent world events, look closely at what has unfolded from them, especially after the New Moon on the 26, and even more so after Mercury goes Direct on May 3.

Are those events merely the past coming back for a look-see again, or are those events more indicative of what is truly brewing in our world.

Taurus is fixed Earth and when it grabs something it does not let go.

So if you have started something recently, if it is aligned and alive, the Taurus New Moon will tend to make it more real and grounded.

Taurus likes to make things more secure and comfortable.  That is why money and other resources like real estate are under the umbrella of Taurus.

Taurus is the Earth and our earthly bodies.   It wants to let us know that our bodies can be a pleasurable experience, and it does so in part by enlivening our senses.

Tasty and healthy food therefore is important for Taurus as a result.

During Taurus time we also can usually calm down from the fiery energy of Aries. Everything seeks to slow down and relax.   But you may then feel rather bored if you seek a lot of passion and intensity.

Those recent world events that brought conflict will now either calm down appreciably or be made more real and manifest.

This summer, especially near the August Eclipses, we will experience the fallout from some of the recent events.

We are truly in a new zone now and sometimes you will feel confused or “out of sorts” and unbalanced.

Your body may go through some temporary shifts too,  shifts that feel like you might be sick or that something might be wrong with you.

Let whatever it is play out to see if it stays or not. In most cases it will be temporary, as we are all being shifted in our minds, souls, and bodies by new energies.

Stay open and present as much as you can now.  Realize old wounds and traumas may tend to be triggered, so please do your best to not be carried away by overreacting.

These new energies want to move into you, and when they confront the blocks in your system, the ones that developed from your old wounds and traumas, they may trigger old reactions.

Remember that these old traumas can be transformed.  You can then see that what has happened to you in the past can be a motivation to empower yourself, to improve yourself, and to have empathy for others who have suffered.

You may have been victimized but you are not a victim.  Victim consciousness disempowers people and is part of the old age, not the new age.

Everything that has happened in your life is meaningful and meant to help you to transform and evolve, and to potentially assist others who have been suffering.

The more explosive world events that are coming are part of the process too, as Nature has earthquakes and tornadoes and tsunamis.

Life will go on, and an Age of Aquarius in dawning.  The transition will be better if each of us stays aligned and lives their life according to the nature of the Universe.

Love and Truth are the pillars that hold up the divine realms of the Universe.  Allowing them to be an integral part of our Earthly life paradigm and the Age of Aquarius is quite important now and going forward.

Each of us can make strong intention to let those values be the engine of our life, not materialism, greed, or power.

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

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I do talk about this coming August on the video.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Open Portals of Change, and Astrology Forecast April 9-15.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 8, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have arrived into the New Chapter.   We let you know a few weeks ago that the Aries New Moon on March 27 was the window out into this new chapter, and that big world events would soon follow.

So this last week America bombed Syria, and as usual found a “good” reason to do so: chemical weapons used on innocent Syrian people.  Yet the week before this atrocity, the USA dropped bombs in Iraq that killed many innocent people too. Now that has been effectively put aside in most minds through media silence.

Throughout history, perpetrators most always have found a “good reason” to kill or otherwise harm people.

Hitler believed he was creating a superior race that would bring progress to the world.

Bush II believed that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction- which did not exist.

Trust me on this-  Killing people in other parts of the world, when one is not really having to defend their country from attackers, has more ulterior motives behind it.

This bombing was a power play intended to show the world, most especially North Korea, Iran, Russia, and China, that the USA is back as the baddest guy in the neighborhood (“Make America Great Again”). It also takes people away from believing Trump and Putin are in a bromance.

Regardless of the reasons, this is the event that takes us into this new chapter, as it will be the event that begins to unhinge Pandora’s lid to its box.

Many events that will shake up the world in many ways will result from this event.

As old age and horrible as this bombing is, now is also a time of opening up the portals to higher consciousness and new ways.

We are waking up now out of our “comfort” zones, seeing more clearly, and getting activated to get moving and get doing.

If you focus on what is opening up for you and us collectively, and not on the world dramas, you will be OK.

Fear, hatreds, and most importantly programmed ways to think and feel, will hold you back and keep you stuck in old ways and old patterns.

There are two ways to go in this new chapter now.  You can get all wrapped up in the world dramas, taking sides, getting into winner versus loser consciousness; or you let the new energies and frequencies take you further into Love and Truth consciousness, and the ways of the Age of Aquarius.

There is a trust and faith necessary to do that:  trust and faith in the Universe, your better self, and your fellow soul traveller.

I know some of you will want to get involved in that old world for perhaps idealistic and altruistic reasons of your own.

Please do not do so if you are prone to losing your detachment, getting overly emotionally involved, feeling much fear or hatred, or getting taken off your new world path and/or your spiritual path.

It is important now to keep the focus on what is truly important.  Continuing our journey of transformation out of old consciousness and old ways, and creating and embracing new consciousness and new ways, is very important now.

Opening your mind and heart to the new light wanting to stream in is an important part of the journey now.

Love and Truth are what are wanting to flower in each of us.  The old energies, patterns, programs, beliefs, paradigms are ready to be released- one step at a time.

As we clear those blocks, there is more room in our inner channels and portals for the new energies to move through.

All we have been taught by society is open for questioning now.  Where we came from and where we are going is open for discussion.

We once believed the world was flat and then believed it was round.  And that level of new discovery is ready for us again.  And many of these new vistas sit inside us as new frequencies, new energetics, new soul pathways.

This week April 8-15, we encounter some major shifts: Mercury Retrograde, Venus Direct, and Full Moon in Libra.

Mercury goes Retrograde on Sunday April 9 at 7:14 PM EDT.  Venus will still be Retrgrade then.  

So from April 9- April 15 both planets will be retrograde.  On April 15 Venus goes direct, at which time only Mercury will be retrograde- until May 3 when it goes back direct again.

So this week ahead may get really unclear at times, especially around relating and relationships, and linear thinking.

You may tend to go back and forth on issues, or want to jump to conclusions too fast.

Do your best to wait and let issues brew longer if possible.  After April 15, when Venus goes Direct, relationship issues and security/home issues will begin to clear up.

But with Mercury still Retrograde, not all issues in all ways will be clear yet.  Be patient and trusting of the process.  Linear bottom line thinking is not as useful during Mercury Retrograde.

And as Venus Retrograde brought a rewind and reflection on relationships and people from the past, Mercury Retrograde also can create dreams, thoughts and in the flesh people coming back from the past.

So you can see the potential pattern:  Moving forward into new worlds and consciousness, while also reflecting on the past.

What from your past and present needs to be released?   What can you take with you on your soul’s journey going forward now?  Let the process unfold to show you the way.

Please do not overthink or try to figure it all out in your head during the retrograde time period.  Be satisfied with processing and going deeper for more insights.

That will help you to know what is best, not just in your head, but also in your heart and soul.

To further shift the energies and view this week, there is a Full Moon in Aries/Libra on April 10/11 at 2:08 AM EDT on the 11th.

Uranus in Aries will be strong in this Full Moon, so there may be some important awakenings that occur this week, shifting us outside of old boxes that have kept us locked up in self defeating thoughts and beliefs. Pluto in Capricorn will also be strong in this Full Moon.  So powerful transformational events and emotions may also erupt this week.

With the Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra in this Full Moon, we are trying to balance being true to ourselves and what we believe in on the one hand; while on the other hand truly listening and caring what is important to someone else.

Finding one’s personal empowerment and independence within a relationship is also a potential issue to be addressed this week.

We are filling up our cups of life now with more energy and action. The greater world is also getting more activated with events and movements.

We are ready for this now.

I will be doing a video conversation with David Lonebear Sanipass on the 15th at 2:43 PM, which David says is a time of cosmic importance. And of course also on the 15th Venus goes Direct.  David and I will be discussing the big shifts in the world and in our personal lives at this powerful time to be alive.  We will make that video available to others soon after.

till next week,

Leo

A Step Beyond and Astrology Forecast September 11- 17.

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week is round 2 of eclipses, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces on Friday September 16 at 3:05 PM EDT.

That means that intensity will build this coming week appreciably until it climaxes on or around the 16th.

Since Mercury also stays Retrograde all this week, it may at times feel quite off balance emotionally and mentally.

The more one energetically rides the waves, the better.   If one holds too tightly and tries to control too much it will be more difficult this week.

Adding to the intensity of the eclipse, Mars in Sagittarius will square the points of the Sun and Moon positions of the eclipse.

That makes a T-square formation, a usually difficult pulling in 3 different directions energetically.

Sun in Virgo pulls toward physical order, logical analysis, and perfecting or fixing;  Moon in Pisces wants to be able to let go and surrender, allow the soul to speak its truth, and to go with the flow.   Both seek to be of service to others or to something greater than the self.

Mars in Sagittarius wants to stoke the fires of enthusiasm and inspiration, take the exciting adventure, and trust inspiration.   Virgo moves downward, Pisces moves inward, Sagittarius moves upward.    Virgo is earth, Pisces is water, Sagittarius is fire.

If you try too hard to figure everything out this week, you will likely be frustrated.  If you encounter challenges or difficulties, it will be best to let the process unfold without needing to totally understand everything or to force conclusions or answers.

Remember that Mercury is Retrograde and as such it requires letting go of mental controls, and instead to trust other ways of comprehension like intuition or imagination.

You may be rewinding the clock of your life now, revisiting with people from your past through dreams, memories or actual in-person connections.

This may bring up unresolved issues, issues you have put aside and thought were resolved well enough.

Current situations in your life can be seen as similar to the ones that are coming back to you from the past.

You thus have the opportunity to work through blocks or dysfunctional patterns in your life or relationships.    The past only needs to come back so it can be applied to current issues that need resolution or healing. Or perhaps it is back so you find closure to the old issues, so you can move on in your life or relationships.

If you are feeling hurt beyond what seems “logical”, then you know it is an old wound or trauma that has been triggered inside you.

Eclipses help us to move out of stuck places in our minds or hearts. They do so by taking us out of our comfort zones, creating breakdowns or breakthroughs out of those stuck energies.

Mercury Retrograde helps us to see with new lens, to perceive differently, to go outside the old boxes.  It helps us to question a belief or direction we have chosen.

We then have the opportunity to change directions, to think and feel differently, or to end up feeling even more confident of what was previously chosen.

You can see why it is wise, with the eclipses and Mercury Retrograde to not jump to conclusions, or leap into anything.

All is in process now, and bottom line thinking is off its usual abilities.   Be patient and wait it out.  Before too long (sometime after Mercury goes back direct on September 22nd) renewed clarity and direction will surface from the fog.

In the global picture during this Eclipse Season and Mercury Retrograde:  the election process for President of the USA is getting even more mean spirited from both sides; a truce has been called in war torn Syria; North Korea is looking more dangerous than ever; the USA is  getting more estranged from China and some Asian nations like the Philippines; the economy  and stock market are showing signs of difficulty; Iran and the USA are sabre rattling with one another; and the Middle East in general feels like a kind of calm before the coming storms.

These issues will tend to build intensity this week with some kind of climax around the Lunar Eclipse.   Then all will begin to shift around the 22nd on Autumn Equinox with Mercury back Direct again.

Life as we know it is rapidly changing right before our eyes now, and we are only just in the beginning of the transformation.

We have a long way to go before we reach what is needed and aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

Things in some ways will get much worse, like with societal structures and institutions, which are decaying and self destructing.

But in the process we are as a human collective re-aligning with core principles and ideals.

We are reaching more up to the heavens of our divine nature, while at the same time getting more comfortable with our connection to sacred Mother Earth and her Natural rhythms.

We are honoring more our souls and spiritual natures, while learning to trust our bodies and their wisdom at the same time.

All is connected and working together for a common unity and evolutionary growth.

All is pointing toward the star of the Age of Aquarius.  It may not be exactly what each of us wants, but it will give us all exactly what we collectively need in our travels around the wheel of our Universe into a New Age.

Expect the unexpected and do not be too surprised if we before too long see the proof that we as Earthlings are not alone in the Universe.

Till next week,

Leo
