Venus Direct and Astrology Forecast September 6-12

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The winds and tides of our consciousness and lives begin to shift this week.   These shifts will morph into a huge portal of change and transformation for later September and beyond.

The first winds will bring Venus going back Direct on Sunday September 6 at 4:29 AM EDT.  Venus has been Retrograde since July 25, and many relationship lives have gone through much turmoil and upheaval since then.

While Mercury is Retrograde we cannot trust our minds to operate as they usually do, and when Venus is Retrograde we cannot trust our hearts to operate as they usually do.

That is why it is advised during Venus Retrograde to not jump to any relationship conclusions as normal heart to heart communication is “tainted” by Venus Retrograde.  And the usual insight our hearts give us is clouded by Venus Retrograde.

Venus Retrograde is needed because our heart and relationship lives often get stale or off course, and it becomes imperative that there is a shakeup to get us to wake up.

But as we wake up more fully as Venus goes Direct now, we may still be somewhat foggy.  So we wait for Venus to have been direct for awhile before we begin to see into our hearts more clearly again.  And it usually takes another few weeks before all is back into some kind of order again.  Venus actually goes full circle on October 8, when it goes back to exactly where it started its retrograde journey.  That does not mean you necessarily need to wait that long to get heart clarity and to move you relationships forward, but full completion of the Venus cycle will not completed till then.

So feel the shift on September 6, but be careful to wait for the dust to clear from your storm traumatized heart before you are fully certain of anything.

And as we slowly settle back into our normal heart rhythms again, we will be also experiencing the downward movement of the last quarter of the lunar cycle, a cycle which began at the New Moon in Leo on August 15.

It is time this week to come down into a more humble place (especially so as we are in Sun in Virgo time).  From that more simple and grounded place, we begin to develop more order and to make more sense of what our recent soul’s journey has been about.

What relationship lessons have we been learning?  What is our heart trying to tell us?   What is the realistic state of our relationship?  What needs to be released from our heart’s past?  Who has really cared for you?  Who has really hardly seen you at all?

Now this week, no matter what the lessons or insight have been, it is time to begin to move forward, to leave the nightmare, to shake off the hurt, and to make strong intention to change the unhealthy relationship patterns and to attract more resonant people into your life.

As Venus slowly moves your heart issues forward this week, and as the Moon goes darker everyday into your soul’s quiet recesses; you are preparing for the first eclipse this Eclipse Season.

That will happen on September 12/13. It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo at 2:41 AM EDT on the 13th.

A big shift bringing big changes will be ignited at that Solar Eclipse. A portal of new transformational energies will begin to crack open then.

As it is a Virgo Solar Eclipse New Moon, the Universe will be bringing us energies which will help us to be more real,  more humble and of service to others.  We will desire to find more order to our lives and our own minds.

Remember that a Solar Eclipse is a New Moon on steroids.  So as you are energetically pushed to move forward, be careful of the downsides of Virgo.  Be careful not to get into obsessions or overly critical opinions, especially of yourself.   Also watch out to not be so materially and physically oriented as to lose the flow of soul inside you.

In the greater world, major events are getting ready to unfold.  World dominoes will begin to fall, affecting one place after another.

The world economic structure is beginning to come undone and will continue to do so. It is possible that life support systems will delay the inevitable for a while longer, but not much longer.

Boundaries are being breached as can be seen in an influx of refugees into Europe and elsewhere. The wars in Iraq and Syria and Afghanistan have made for more homeless people trying to find a safe place to live.

Our whole world is in the process of being transformed now, with power structures changing too and soon currency issues will change too as there will be strong attempts to shift away from the dollar.

China, India, Brazil, Iran, and Russia are empowering themselves while America wastes its time listening to and giving so much attention to Donald Trump.

The Middle East is on the verge of major war now as the Iran nuclear deal is galvanizing the positions of so many countries, especially Israel.

Israel has a Mars Return on September 22, 5 days before the powerful Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on September 27.  Watch for what Israel does around that time.

After that second eclipse, much will be energized and opened up as the transformational portal will be more fully activated. Energies of truth and love will be bursting at the seams to break through into our minds and hearts and world.

Fear and hatred and cynicism will be blocks in the system that will collide with the new streams of love and truth. Let them go.

Old traumas which breed lack of trust and lack of faith and low self esteem will be bursting open to be better understood and healed.  That healing will open our hearts and minds to the love and truth wanting to enter our consciousness.

Use this coming week, before the first eclipse on September 12/13, to find some resolution and clarity, some insight and direction, some inner peace.

Put into order what needs to be ordered, and most importantly be as humble and down to Earth as possible.

What is inflated will be deflated now, so we can do what is needed to heal our ourselves, our Earth and its creatures, and our human family.

“It is not about me” is a good mantra to put on your refrigerator and in your meditations now.   

Being with what that means- in your deeper soul now- will provide you with some foundation of strength for the storms ahead.

Till next week,

Leo

Hand Of Time Restarts and Astrology Forecast August 2-8

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 1, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Venus is solidly Retrograde now and will be until September 6, so relationship issues continue front and center in our lives, for better and worse.    And Saturn overnight from Saturday August 1 to Sunday August 2 turns from Retrograde to Direct.

As it turns Direct, metaphorically the hand of time starts up again, and there is a turning point feeling of Time Marching On.  Though you may still feel there is time to choose a direction, on a deeper level destiny (with your intentions) has already made up its mind.

Now you can try to close up the flow of heart and soul to where it is meant to go, but this will just delay the inevitable as life support systems do for the dying.

And in the process of ego control of natural cycles, the controller can develop illness either mental or physical or spiritual as a result.

Keep in mind however, that even though Time now marches on this week, it does not do so all at once.  Saturn turning to Direct just gives us a turning point sense of time.  It may take more time before we truly realize what has been “decided”.  And even more time before wheels are set in motion to get going.

Many of these decisions have to do with relationship now as Venus is Retrograde until September 6.  But that is not the only subject of our interest.   Where we will live or what we will do for work, etc. may also be aligned for a shift in destiny now.

After Saturn goes Direct, later in the week it makes important aspects to other planets: On Monday August 3 it squares Jupiter in Leo,  on Wednesday August 5 it squares Venus in Leo, and on Thursday August 6 it squares Mercury in Leo and trines Mars in Cancer.

In the middle of all this Venus conjuncts both Jupiter and Mercury.

All this planetary action occurs at 28+ degrees of the signs Leo, Scorpio, and Cancer.  This becomes a most important degree in natal charts now.

If you have planets 27-29 degrees of Scorpio and Leo you are most affected.  If you have planets at 27-29 degrees of Taurus or Aquarius or Cancer you are at least somewhat affected.  And hence the issue of impending destiny, especially around relationship is prevalent for you.

As an example of a nation with planets in such places, Israel has it natal Mars from its birth of May 14 1948 at 28+ degrees of Leo.  So Saturn will square that Mars while Jupiter, Venus and Mercury conjunct its Mars.

Mars in a nation’s chart represents its military and police, male influence, conflicts and sometimes war.  Of course Mars was the Roman God of War.

So we can expect some turning point, conflict laden events to ensue in early August with Israel.  And that turning point will likely develop into some bigger events later this month or next when the Eclipses erupt.

In fact there is as Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Mars ruled Aries occurring on September 27.   Israeli scholars have noted that there are 4 Total Lunar Eclipses in a row, all falling on Jewish holidays.  This Total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th (28th in Israel) falls on the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. It is the last of the 4 eclipses in a row.

The Israeli scholars expect quite dramatic events to happen to Israel surrounding this last Blood Moon; and combined with the important planetary movements this week to Israel’s Mars, we can expect significant events concerning Israel  to unfold from August through October 2015.

Life will likely change appreciably over the next few months in both personal and global ways for all of us.  Do your best to surrender to the energies at work from the Universe, knowing that if you are aligned in your heart and soul you will be in just the right place and time for what will be shifting.

Some changes may be very deep and profound in your consciousness and life, and those changes will provide the healing and transformation your soul now requires.

Much of the transformation over the next few months in essence is to shift you more strongly out of your ego and into your soul or higher self.  From that place you will be aligned with the Universe and Spirit and ready for what comes.

Meditation and spiritual practice are highly recommended now, or if you are already doing this, then it is time to increase the effort.

Receiving healings and spiritual/psychological guidance is also good now.

And remember that this week, with all the Saturn aspects, there also is a Jupiter conjunct Venus in Leo aspect. When they last made conjunction was on July 1st, on the same day as a Full Moon in Capricorn.

That day Jupiter and Venus were so close that they actually looked merged into one in the sky. This week they are conjunct again, though they will not merge this time. And since Venus is now Retrograde and square Saturn, your heart connections are even more important to tune into then ever.

We recommended during the last conjunction of Jupiter and Venus in early July to check in to see what and especially whom your heart was into.   Now there will be more conflict to those connections from desires for security and familiarity and safety.

So it is incumbent on you to set your priorities of importance in your life around relationships and heart connections.  What is more important- love or security if you had to choose?  Are you more a romantic or a realist?  Your destiny depends on your priorities, or more to the point your destiny is dependent on Who you are at this time.

In many ways, as is aligned with the laws of attraction, Who you are energetically on a deep soul level determines what and whom you will attract to your consciousness and life.  That of course determines your destiny.

So now as Saturn goes Direct and makes important aspects this week, you can better know what “fate” has in store for you if you can dive deep into your psyche and soul to know Who you are at this time in your life.

Have you transformed and healed sufficiently to be able to attract to your Self healthier people and circumstances?  Of course healing and transformation are always evolving, but as Saturn shifts to Direct now- the Universe is taking a “snapshot” of You to determine your approaching “fate”.

And in the greater world this is true too.   The USA is in the final few months of having Pluto oppose its natal Sun in Cancer of 13+ degrees.  This process all started at the Cardinal Grand Cross in April 2014.

And now as Pluto is almost exactly opposite the USA Sun for the rest of this year, a USA fate will be unfolding.

Who are we collectively now as Saturn goes Direct?  Take a close and deep look and you will have a sense of what is coming our way soon.

Till next week,

Leo

Age of Aquarius on the Horizon and Astrology Forecast April 5-11

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 4, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this week’s forecast/blog we are experiencing a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra.  It is the second of two eclipses in a row that began on Spring Equinox when there was a Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces.

I wrote back in March 2014 that we were entering a most important 18 month period of time, after which we would be in a greatly changed world on the way to a New Age of Aquarius.

We now have six months to go, which will be met at approximately the time of the next Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on September 27, in Libra Aries.

I also have been relating through my writing of how important the Middle East is concerning the changes of Ages, as it is where the first civilizations and organized religions were birthed.

And this spring, in between the two eclipses there were very important developments in the Middle East:  Militarist Bibi Netanyahu was re-elected Prime Minister of Israel, and the formation of a nuclear deal was drawn up with Iran. Additionally ISIS of Iraq/Syria ignited an attack on Tunisia, and Yemen broke out in civil war.

Imagine my surprise this week when I read that Christian ministers and Jewish rabbis have been predicting that the 18 month period between April 2014 and late September 2015 was related to prophecies of end times occurring in the Middle East, after which a messiah would appear.

As I write this during Easter weekend, when Christ was said to have been crucified and then resurrected, there is this 3rd of 4 so-called Blood Moons, which are Total Lunar Eclipses. The first was in April 2014 when the Cardinal Grand Cross was also appearing.  The last will be on September 27 this year.

These prophecies say the end times would happen when there were 4 Total Lunar Eclipses in a row, with no partial Lunar Eclipses in between, that would coincide with Jewish holidays.

All four of these so called Blood Moons occur on either Passover, which is happening now, or Sukkot as it will be on September 27 at the last of the 4 Blood Moons in a row.

So some Christian and Jewish ministers or scholars say end times and messiahs are approaching, with the Middle East and Israel the focal points.

I say something different about this same time period- that we are speeding up the process of transition between a Pisces Age, which started around the birth of Christ, to an Age of Aquarius, which happens in the 2020’s.

I do not believe in end times but in the changing of Ages; and I do not believe in Messiahs, but I do give credence to the need to turn to Christ-like consciousness on a mass scale in order to transform us beyond the hate filled wars that are knocking at our collective doors, especially in the Middle East.

So now as we experience the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Libra, it is important for each of us to find more peace in our hearts and to find a consciousness that does not place any as better than any others.

The Age of Aquarius demands a world of equality and one of Diversity within Unity.   So acceptance of the differences and values between cultures, ways of life, sexual orientations, races, and religions is essential.

Many in the world now, those with continued consciousness in the old age, are setting up hatreds and battles between peoples.  Battles between Muslims and  Judeo/Christians; Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims; Westerners and Asian peoples; Russians and Westerners; Israelis and Palestinians; Conservatives and Liberals, etc are getting fiercer.

But many others, including a growing number of young people, are developing or have attained a consciousness of inclusiveness and inner peace.

It is a good time, as events on a personal level and a collective level are erupting in our lives, to let go of beliefs, jobs and relationships that keep us locked up in old consciousness.

It is also a good time to work out with others relationship patterns that keep you stuck in the past, keep you stuck in beliefs of loser/winner; superior/inferior; perpetrator/victim; privileged/underprivileged; or wealthy/poor.

This coming week, after the Total Lunar Eclipse on April 4, Jupiter goes Direct on Wednesday April 8.

Jupiter Direct in Leo this week will bring potential inspiration in creative endeavors, hearts that want to burst open with self expression, and desires to work with issues of self worth and self esteem.

It may also bring out the big-ego people, both in personal lives and on the world stage. So watch for those who get filled with themselves and their need to be better than others.

From now until the 18th of April at the Aries New Moon, we will be processing all that has happened from mid March until that New Moon in Aries.

Much has been shaken up, much is stirring in new ways on a very deep level inside; so we will each need some alone time and some time in meditation or contemplation to get our bearings and get centered and directed.

And then after that New Moon in Aries there will be new starts and beginnings, a fast forward movement for many.

Events that are connected to the important planetary happenings since mid march will begin after that Aries New Moon.

There was an exact Uranus/Pluto square on March 16, the last of seven in a row; a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces that occurred on the Spring Equinox; and a Total Lunar Eclipse Cardinal T-Square on April 4 that included Uranus and Pluto.

That is a lot of powerful change moving through our consciousness and lives.  There is a lot of light and truth wanting to awaken us to new ways.

As this light and truth moves through our collective veins of consciousness, it often hits blockages that cause crises.

These crises are catalysts for transformation out of old patterns, behaviors, and beliefs.  They help us release the outworn and connect with our deeper soul.

The connection to deeper soul and our authenticity helps us to surrender and awaken to the waves of light and truth coursing through.

We at the same time connect with the Universe and others who are becoming part of the global movement to a new world and age.

Life on Earth is not ending for our human family and there is no one coming to save us. But as an Age of Aquarius requires, we individuals will take responsibility for our human journey and will help to heal our traumas and disconnections from each other.

In the process we will help to heal our Earth and environment and get our world and human family aligned with the consciousness and ways of an Age of Aquarius.

The process may get ugly sometimes, but we humans are a hearty lot.  We have survived through the evolutionary process many death defying crises.   And now we are ready to mutate again so we will be aligned with the New Age.

Love and Truth are the way forward, as nothing else can light our path during the coming storms.

See you next week,

Leo

Bursting Forward into the Future and Astrology Forecast September 28- October 11.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 27, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We let you know last week that the Autumn Equinox this year, with Pluto changing directions, would be more intense than usual and would likely include powerful world events.

So the USA began a bombing campaign in Syria that day against the Islamic State.   Pluto going Direct on the Equinox is part of the planetary signature for Autumn 2014, and promises a most important and intense autumn ahead.

There will be a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on October 8.   And since transformational Uranus and Pluto will join that Full Moon Eclipse to make a Cardinal T-Square, we can expect a very strong time period ahead.

I am in Italy now writing this Forecast, and next week I will likely be out of internet reach for my usual Saturday blog entry on October 4.  I will be in Italy still on October 11, and at that time I will likely be able to write my forecast for that week ahead.

Then on October 18, just before the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on  October 23,  I will be back in New England and putting out my regular blog entry from back home again.

So this entry is for the next two weeks, from September 28- October 12.

I assume much will be shaking up during that time, especially after October 4.  On October 4 Mercury will change directions from Direct to Retrograde at 1:02 PM EDT.  It will not go back Direct until October 25. Pluto and Uranus will also be triggered that day, so more intense energies will be opening up around that time.  Mercury will be Retrograde during both eclipses as the second eclipse is on October 23. It will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio.

Four days after Mercury goes Retrograde on October 4, there is the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on October 8.  It is at 6:51 AM EDT.

So as usual Mercury Retrograde will bring a shift in energies of mind and communication.  Perceptions change, sometimes very subtly at first, but once it has been going on for a awhile you know things seem “off” or different.  Best not to try to “figure it out” too much.  It is better to trust the unfoldment of a situation rather than to over analyze. Remember that the left brain is not moving in its normal way, but more creative, intuitive, imaginative functions ate better.

It is also good to be in reflective mode, not in a rush to judgment.    Sometimes equipment, especially communication type equipment, can have breakdowns.    People from one’s past often come back in one’s life during Mercury Retrograde, or at least they tend to come back more strongly in dreams or memories.   Making big decisions or signing important documents is not advised unless necessary.

And with the Eclipses happening at the same time, things may seem very out of the ordinary.    Everything may not be as it seems, so trust the process, let everything play out before jumping to conclusions or being impulsive or emotionally reactive.

During the month of October, or even a bit before, shifting tides will help you to release what needs to go, and to open up to new light, ideas, and inspirations.   You can be taken out of any ruts you may be in, and have the opportunity to shift your attitudes or beliefs.  Old patterns can be transformed, healing is easier to access.

World events should intensify greatly during Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.  The war on the Islamist State will intensify.  Issues with Israel and Iran may break open.  The economy may face new shocks in October.  Issues with Russia may intensify.   And other important global events may happen also.  The Middle East is in the process of great transformation, with more and more chaos engulfing the region.  It is getting more and more complicated there, and allegiances are always shifting.   Eradicating the “enemy” is impossible and the bombing in Syria and Iraq is only stirring up a hornets nest of world violence.

The first eclipse, the Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries is a Cardinal  T-Square  makes close aspect again to the USA Sun and Saturn from its natal chart of July 4 1776.    The USA over the next year will be going through much important change.

It is in the process of losing its Superpower status, and becoming a more equal member of the world community.   Military and Economic challenges will greatly affect the USA over that time period.

The Aries Full Moon Eclipse Cardinal T-Square will tend to bring up issues about independence versus making relationship.  Also issues around empowerment and self assertion are likely to come up.  Do your best to balance your own needs with the needs of others during this time period. You may be pressed to make improvements in that area of relating.

Remember you are breaking out of old programming that limits your ability to actualize your authentic soul self and to find more purpose and satisfaction in your life.    During this Autumn Eclipse Season you may become more aware that you have been trying to be someone you are expected to be instead of being true to your self.   Begin or continue to let go of people who you have developed unhealthy dynamics with.   In some cases you will be able to work out these dynamics with others and transform how you relate with them.

There is nothing to freak out about during this Eclipse Season. The best way to look at it is to see that movement is necessary now in order to align your self with the waves of change from planetary configurations.  It is so easy to just be a servant to our habits and usual patterns of behavior.  During these Eclipse Seasons we are reminded that life does not stay the same.  Our lives have seasons just like nature does, and we need at these times to put to rest that which is ending, and to open up to an embrace the natural transformations.

The Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year opened the gates to a new collective and personal chapter of our lives.   Now the Autumn Eclipse Season pushes us further into that new chapter, and in the process helps us to release the old and press on into the new.   We are closer than ever to a full admittance into the Age of Aquarius.   The birth pains may increase at times, but keep your eye on the  bigger picture:  Birth of a New Age.

Autumn Eclipse Season 2014 Begins and Astrology Forecast September 21-27.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 20, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The winds are shifting this coming week and picking up strength, bringing us the beginning of Autumn Eclipse Season 2014.

We may begin to experience or at least feel these winds of change as early as Sunday when Mars squares Neptune.  Then on Monday September 22 at 10:29 PM EDT is the Autumn Equinox.

This year’s Autumn Equinox is more powerful then usual and promises a most intense Autumn season ahead.  That is so because Pluto will be changing directions from Retrograde to Direct less than two hours before the Equinox.

That means that Pluto’s energy and meaning will be a big part of what is felt and experienced surrounding the time of the Equinox.

Autumn Equinox is like the sunset time of the year, as the Sun is just beginning to come down for the year.    Light and dark minutes are equal at the Autumn Equinox, but right after that moment of equality dark minutes begin to increase as light minutes begin to wane.

The Yin energies get stronger, and colder darker times ahead can be felt.  And of course this is not just felt physically, as the holistic world we are in lets us know it is time to begin to feel more deeply emotionally and spiritually as well.

Since the Autumn Equinox also means that the Sun is moving into Libra for a month, we become more socially conscious and more relationship conscious at this time.  Our yang motivations to focus more on our self and our personal needs and personal growth are beginning to shift.

Now we realize and appreciate our needs to love and be loved, to make connection, to live more outside our personal bubble.  We may also, as is aligned with the coming darker and colder days, realize we need others in our life to feel truly warm and safe.

This year the Autumn Equinox may bring us to feel this shift more intensely and deeply, as Pluto is in the spotlight of our awareness.

Pluto, Guardian of the Underworld, brings up in a powerful way the “darker” feelings, thoughts, and secrets.  It sometimes quite powerfully or explosively brings up emotions or issues that we have suppressed and even repressed.

In relationship to others that means we may speak our minds in a more direct way, emotionally letting out that which we have previously held in.

In that process we are speaking our truth and hence empowering ourselves.  We may also be pushing the buttons of someone else and causing them to also say things in a more primal and direct manner.

This may cause a very intense and meaningful discussion that clears the air and either brings about a healing or more animosity toward one another.   Sometimes there is also a letting go of someone who is not right for you anymore.

In the greater world there is a possibility of a powerful world event around this time;  but if not now,  Pluto being a  part of the signature of Autumn 2014 promises us that important world events will happen definitely during the season at some time. The Middle East is still in the spotlight for potential events with Iraq and Syria, Islamic State and Israel.

This is a dark moon time early this week, bringing a New Moon in Libra on September 24 at 2:14 AM EDT.

After the lunar crescent is seen in the sky on the 25th, the energies of the New Moon in Libra truly take form. That means that words and intentions become more about “us” and “you” than “me” and ‘mine”.

It becomes easier to find connections in all sorts of ways;  and desires for beauty, refinement, and social graces get stronger.  Make sure, however, “not to give up the baby along with the bathwater”. That means you do not want to accommodate others so much that you are forgetting about your own needs.

Work things out with others now and truly listen, but make sure you balance that with standing your ground around your own integrity.  Pluto changing directions could cause some eruptions of “negative” emotions as part of the process of trying to work things out.  Libra usually brings more peace and harmony, but Pluto will bring more intensity than the usual Libra time of year.

Remember that Autumn Eclipse Season begins this week and it is just the beginning of a most powerful season ahead. There will be much movement soon in many ways.

Stuck energies do not stand much of a chance, old patterns will be challenged, new ways of thinking and acting will be breaking through.

You are in a New Chapter of your life, and whatever is in your life that does not fit into this new phase will need to be let go.  You may try to hold on, but that will only bring more pain and misery.

Though it may feel unsafe or insecure to let go, just allow your self to feel what it would be like to keep the status quo.  Would you feel trapped?  Would your heart and spirit be dimmed?

If what you are holding onto represents a disrespecting of your self, are you ready now to respect and love your self more by letting go of the old person or job or home or belief?

This could be a very important time this season to liberate your self from that which has chained your heart and soul and free spirit. It is time to move on.

To add to the shifting tides, Mercury will go Retrograde on October 4.  Then on October 8 is the first of two eclipses:  A New Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries.  This Eclipse makes a powerful T-square with Uranus and Pluto, bringing huge waves of healing and transformation.

Then on October 23 is a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio.    That Lunar cycle will take us to the New Moon in Sagittarius on November 22, a time when Autumn Eclipse Season comes to an end.
