Opening the Gates and Astrology Forecast August 4-10

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The next couple of days are in the dark moon phase, still low key relative to what is coming.

But on Tuesday August 6  at 5:51 PM EDT there is a New Moon in heart centered, creative, hopeful Leo. The next day August 7 Jupiter in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn- triggering the Uranus/Pluto square by beginning to form a T-square with those two planets.

So this week we are ready to get more fully into new starts and new chapters of our lives, ready to shed whatever has been holding us back.  It is time to take the ride of transformation and let true change into our hearts and lives.

If a part of you has been still chewing on the past and past hurts and wrongs, it is time to begin to let go and move forward.   Sometimes total resolution cannot be found, everything cannot be tied into the neat package we desire.  Everyone will not be on board with what you intend or what you want them to understand.   And it is good to know you cannot control that.  What you can do is speak your piece and then let the chips fall where they are meant to land.

Sometimes we just have to stop our brooding because time is up and the starting gun is about to fire.     You can do the best you can with what you have now, and you can stop the blame game, stop looking for fault, stop thinking about “woulda, coulda, shoulda” and just go forward.

And with this Leo New Moon you can go forward if you want with an open hopeful heart.  Leo at its best has a childlike trust in its heart, spontaneously interacting with life.    It trusts its heart to lead the way, and creatively opens doors in the heart of life itself.

When Leo goes wrong it gets out of its heart and into its head. Leo feels most natural when it is receiving attention and treated special.  Remember that Leo’s ruling planet is the Sun, which is the center of the solar system, shining light and heat to all in its solar system. How special is that?

But if the Sun, so to speak , was able to look at itself and get all egotistical about its importance, everything would go downhill.

And that is Leo’s weakness, its ego. Remember your mother telling you, “don’t let it go to your head” when someone compliments you or when you do really well at something?   That is the downfall of Leo, letting its specialness go to its head (its ego).  When that happens they get into the superior/inferior game, get out of their heart, and their glow goes away.

So watch out for your ego or others’ egos usurping the magic of the heart now.  Let your heart shine and let the hearts of others shine now, and then these new beginnings will bring much creative spark and lots of hope for what is best for everyone.

Jupiter triggering the Uranus/Pluto square will be quite powerful for the next 3 weeks, so allow change to flow.  Jupiter will be conjunct Pluto this week, so much intensity is likely to expressed.    In relationships, boxes of closed up emotions may erupt and be expressed without boundaries at times.

Perhaps this will create a catharsis and an outflow of emotions you did not expect.     We are awakening, and beginning to see things we did not see before.

Some new relationships are being born now, but also some old ones are being seen in a new light, making us realize that there is not much left in that old relationship.

So let go this week, and let life happen. Let your heart guide your journey now more than usual.  Your head can give advice to your heart, but would not do well to try to be in control now.

Waves of change are blowing strong now, so let it happen, and in fact enjoy and have fun.

In the Greater World there is a very good chance that powerful events will erupt over the next few weeks.   It feels as if much has been held in abeyance, waiting for the gates to open.  After this New Moon in Leo and during the dance of Jupiter making T-Square with Uranus/Pluto these next few weeks, Pandora’s box of previously controlled emotions and actions will be released.  Nature may also be releasing energy through its disasters during that time.

Also one of the most important issues playing out now is around the Islamic world.  There is so much resentment between western culture and Islamic culture.  There is such fear of “terror” now, but there is also a tinder box of emotions brewing in Egypt, Syria, Israel, Iran, and other countries in the Middle East.

There are peace efforts for Israel/Palestine, but also a power struggle going on for domination of the Middle East. The status quo will not hold for long, big change is on its way there.

There is such a distorted sense of separation between Judeo/Christian culture and Islamic culture.  The spiritual renaissance breaking open in our consciousness and world brings a spirituality of love and connection instead.

Remember that all the change coming in the world and in your personal life is meaningful.   This change may look as if it is about mundane matters, power struggles and money. And of course on one level that is exactly what is happening.

But on another higher level, from a wider and deeper perspective, we are making a huge shift from one age to another.   We are learning to let go of old programming that keeps us stuck in fear and ego, and is helping us to awaken to a new consciousness, the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius.

We are learning that the old way of seeing life through the lens of “us versus them”; someone wins and someone fails; good luck and bad luck; good and evil; or just plain seeing everything as random and meaningless, is not working to give our human family a healthy and loving world.

We are all in this world together, one family, whether we acknowledge it or not.  In fact, until we acknowledge that fact, until we also learn to see all the dots of the Universe as meaningfully connecting with one another, we stay doomed to eventual annihilation.

Our human family is at a major crossroad as we move through the transition between ages.  We choose to evolve into knowing the Oneness, the unity of all the disparate parts; or we choose to see “me and mine against you and yours”, and choose to see everything as disconnected form everything else.

There is less and less time to choose in my estimation.  What do you choose?

Navigating the New Reality and Astrology Forecast July 8-15

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 7, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are collectively now residing in the new land that was created as a result of the tremendous power of the recent planetary configurations, including the Eclipses, Venus Retrograde and Venus Passage, and the first pass of Uranus square Pluto.

No we are not anywhere near being anchored in this new reality, but nevertheless we are moving forward into it.  Many new and important events have swirled into our lives.

So many are looking at new, changed, or changing relationships since Venus Retrograde and the Venus Passage.   Others have made decisions or have had life events that have greatly shifted their lives in other ways since the Eclipse Season.   Many people are now  unsure about many parts of their lives, whether it be relationships or work or health or where to live.  I have been witnessing more change over the last few months than I have seen in a long time.

Even those who have not yet experienced great change in their personal lives, they are still feeling the strength of the winds of change and are preparing for transformed lives to come soon.

Make no mistake about it, transformation is powerful now and will remain so for quite some time.  Old patterns and ways that have become stale or toxic are ripe to be released, and each time there is a powerful planetary time period, the winds come and take more of these old patterns away.

This leaves many in a sort of limbo, waiting for the new to be born to replace that which is leaving.  Others have found new relationships or jobs or homes or attitudes already, but they are walking with baby steps into the new, with unsure legs into these new zones of life reality.

All of these changes are aligned with bigger revolutionary and evolutionary shifts in our Universe and Earth human reality.  Especially the Uranus/Pluto square is pushing us faster forward into global and personal transformation in alignment with our collective movement into an Aquarian Age.

There was the first pass of this aspect on June 24, and there will be 6 more passes leading us into 2016.  Then over four years later Jupiter will conjunct Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius in December of 2020, which symbolically promises us a huge passage into the Aquarian Age.

The last time Jupiter was conjunct Saturn was in May 2000, just before George Bush was elected President. That conjunction was square Uranus in Aquarius, giving a 20 year signature for old forces digging in to keep the status quo (Jupiter conjunct Saturn in Taurus) versus transformational change into an Aquarian Age (Uranus in Aquarius).

So the 20 years- 2000-2020, which gives us the usual 20 year cycle of Jupiter/Saturn, has been bringing us the see-saw years of pulls back into status quo old patterns, and conversely great waves of change into Aquarian Age consciousness.

Each of us is learning to release the old patterns while embracing the new ways that are aligned with Aquarian Age consciousness.

Of course this plays out in a big way in our greater world.  Power and control for privileges and superiority still has much influence over the ways of the old world and paradigm. Dog eat dog competition runs so much of our economy and military domination in the world.

Yet at the same time so many of us are connecting to soul consciousness that brings us into ways of equality and unity and respect for one another and our sacred Earth.  We want to be liberated from controls over our hearts, souls and minds by the established societal systems.  We want to honor our individualized and authentic selves and make relationship with others all over the world in order to bring health and harmony to a soul suffering human family.

We want to live in consciousness that knows the spirit of the Universe and the higher meaning it radiates through its signs, symbols and synchronicities, showing us we are always safe in its bosom of love and truth.

So now as you get used to navigating your new world, seeking clarity, perspective, and direction; trust that what you need and when you need it, the Universe will be there for you. Maybe not the way you always planned or willed, but just what is right for your soul and what you need.

Our life on Earth is not just about a material search for security and pleasure. It is also about deeper issues, and higher concerns.  Our deeper souls are what drive our life vehicles, not our egoic desires.  So if you learn to surrender more, while still feeling empowered and centered in true self, you will be guided.

Now this week we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle begun at the Gemini New Moon on June 19.  Going past the Full Moon in Capricorn this last week has brought us to the downside of the lunar cycle. It is time to wind down, to go more yin-ward and not so boldly forward.  The next New Moon, in Cancer, will not be until July 18/19.

Adding a curve ball of shifting mental energies and perceptions this coming week is Mercury going retrograde next Saturday June 14 at 10:16 PM EDT. It stays retrograde until August 7/8.   The previous day before Mercury goes Retrograde, on Friday the 13th,  liberating and change-evoking Uranus goes retrograde also.

Also around that time and lasting into the next week, Mars in Libra will be making aspect to the Uranus/Pluto square, creating a cosmic T-Square, a strong astrological configuration. This touches off the Uranus/Pluto square and shakes things up some more. In the greater world keep watching the Middle East, Global Economy, and American Presidential election process where the big changes will be soon erupting.

So beginning late this coming week, energies will be shifting again.  Be alert for this potential turn of events.  What you have been developing and getting used to could be challenged.   It is best to stay on course, unless the messages or events overpoweringly push you otherwise.

At  the very least allow your perceptions to shift.  Do not let your mental paradigm to be too crystallized now.  Be open to new information that changes your opinion or shifts your viewpoint or perspective. Mercury retrograde is not to be looked at superstitiously.  It comes into our life 3 times a year and brings with it a meaningful shift in perception.

It is true that sometimes that means going into a Twilight Zone of consciousness or putting up with glitches in machinery or communication devices or thinking, but not always.  During the retrograde period it is best to go into more reflective thinking and more right brain creativity.  Decisions do  need more time to make sure they are correct;  yet some may even choose to put off those big decisions or delay signing contacts till Mercury goes back direct.

Uranus going retrograde on Friday the 13th seems meaningful, and could go along with the aforementioned shifting of thinking and a turning point of events.

Friday the 13th is an interesting human date, one that many superstitiously associate with scary or bad events coming into one’s life. I am convinced that a fear of the Feminine is at play in the fear of Friday the 13th.

13 is a sacred feminine number associated with the 13 lunar cycles in a year, as opposed to 12 solar cycles of the year.  Friday in many cultures is Venus Day. It is Venerdi in Italian, or Venus Day. It is Freya/Frida day in other cultures or Friday, Freya being another name for Venus, Frida being a Wiccan lady.

So 13 and Venus are both related with Feminine, archetypal Feminine, not cultural feminine, which often tries to make females “sugar and spice and everything nice”.  The fear is more of the power of the Feminine, which has brought great fear to Patriarchal paradigms, who have burned and killed “witches”.

So late this week and into next week, there should be a shifting in line with what has been changing since the powerful Eclipse Season that has just passed. Keep your self centered and aligned and on track.   All is happening meaningfully.

See you next week as Mercury goes Retrograde.
