This week we move through increasing intensity as we move toward our first eclipse this autumn.   There is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Libra/Aries on Friday October 18 at 7:38 PM EDT.   Jupiter will square the full moon partners Sun and Moon to form a potent Cardinal T-Square.

Lunar Eclipses are many times stronger than the usual full moon, and Jupiter forming the Cardinal  T-Square make it even more powerful.   Cardinal signs are the first sign of seasons: Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn; so they signify initiation or new starts.

So energies are pushing us to move on into new chapters of life.  Some of the themes at the portal of the new chapter are based this week on the following astrological issues:  Libra versus Aries is respectively peace versus war; or harmony versus conflict; or making relationship and compromise versus willful headstrong positions.

Jupiter in Cancer squaring those Full Moon signs brings an emotional need for being true to the higher values of one’s group or “family”.

In the greater world, in synchronistic timing with the Lunar Eclipse this week, there is an important meeting between world powers and Iran on Monday the 15th to work out an agreement about Iran’s nuclear program.  Ultimately its success or failure will bring our world closer to either peace or war in the Middle East.   As I have been writing for a long time, the transformation of our world into an Aquarian Age rests in large part on the happenings in the Middle East.

It also rests largely on the economic condition of our world, with much emphasis on the United States financial condition, as its Empire is the engine that runs much of world’s economy.

And this Thursday the 17th, just one day before the Lunar Eclipse, the debt ceiling must be raised in the United States, or it will default on its world debts.  Potentially, that default would bring great destruction to the USA and world economy. There are signs of a severe economic meltdown on the way, whichever way the talks go.

Just a few weeks ago it looked like World War III might ignite if the USA bombed Syria.  At the last minute the bombing was halted when President Obama turned to the American people and Congress for support of the war.  Their negative response to the potential bombing and President Putin of Russia’s support to break down the chemical weapons of Syria brought peace.  Now Iran,Syria’s ally, is also on the verge of making relationship with the USA and world powers, which would bring more energy toward peace and Aquarian Age world equality.

So this coming week will be a turning point with both Iran and the Middle East on the one hand, and the USA and world economy on the other hand.   Compromise and peace (Libra) or a willful strong warrior’s stance (Aries) is the issue brought from this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse which is quite evident in both the Iranian conference and the raising of the debt limit and opening of the government.  Democrats and Republicans are in obvious conflict over these economic issues.

What is likely to happen in both issues is that a weak compromise or agreement will be made, pushing the true resolution of both the economic issue and the Iran issue to another day.  Yet because of the volatility of this current Eclipse Season, unpredictable events could bring down all efforts for compromise.   Keep in mind that ultimately our world and especially our country require a huge overhaul of change, and the status quo old paradigm must die.

Then on Monday the 21st Mercury goes Retrograde shifting thinking again; on November 1st powerfully transformative Uranus and Pluto make another exact square to one another; and on November 3 there is a Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio bringing passionate and intense emotions back more strongly than before.    The Middle East, the economy, and other as yet unknown events may explode into our world before the year is over.

And whatever is left undone will for sure come back in a very powerful manner next spring at the Uranus/Pluto Grand Cross which happens at the same time as two new eclipses, in April.  That grand cross will be exactly, by degree, making aspect to the USA natal Sun placement of July 4 1776, the birth day of the United States.

And President Obama this Autumn Eclipse Season is facing an important Saturn and Scorpio Solar Eclipse square to his Sun in Leo.   The temperature of stress and turmoil for his life are increasing dramatically.   Exactly what forms of experience that takes is not fully known yet.  But he is bucking some of the ingrained ways of being in Washington and has many angry enemies.

The climax of the Uranus/Pluto square and challenges to USA superpower status in the world will be in the Spring and Summer of 2014,  yet events this Autumn 2013 will show us many clues as to the direction of the tides of change.

In your personal life, the Autumn Eclipse Season will shake up whatever has been on hold.  There will be movement and energies wanting to break open anything stuck.  In that process some ways of being or relating that are going nowhere will be stressed and pushed to “get out of the way”.

The Libra/Aries Full Moon Lunar Eclipse will bring you to a place of needing to work out issues in a way that both honors both your need to stand your ground and your desire to make relationship or compromise.  Because of the intensity of the aspects, stronger emotions may be expressed, and new ways to look at a situation may open up after the old ways find no solution.

In some cases flashes of inspiration will awaken you to having a breakthrough out of the old stuck patterns.

Remember that the process of transformation out of the fearful controlled ego requires a releasing of the “old you”, of people and situations and mind frames that keep you stuck and running through the old mazes over and over again.  We have all been programmed by family, society and earlier life situations to see our selves and our roles in limited fashion.

At these times of intensified planetary movements, we are given potential escape hatches out of the masks of our old self.  Our authentic soul self wants out so we can live our “best life”.   You are ready to grow to another level, to evolve, to embrace your true self.   And in that process you will need to shed that which keeps you trapped in an artificial role and ego.

The power of transformation accelerates now in this Autumn Eclipse Season.  Healing energies are stronger also.

Your desire to hold onto that which is familiar may be strong also, especially as you sense an unknown chapter of life beckoning you.   You do not usually have to go off with none of your old “belongings”.     It is best if possible to make your own compromises with change or keeping the old.

Often we can find a way for change without giving up the “baby with the bathwater”.  But sometimes we are truly faced with a big letting go, bigger than we think we can handle.  Yet in a transformational context, all happens for a reason, and that reason is our own soul growth and evolution, and the evolution of our world and human family.

Take the ride of this Eclipse Season with an open heart and open mind, yet with your feet on the ground and centered in your soul and the Universe.

Peace and Love and Astrology Forecast September 22-28

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 21, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The moment of exact balance between light and dark, yin and yang is tomorrow Sunday September 22 at 4:44 PM EDT.  That is the moment of the Autumn Equinox, and the beginning of the month of Sun in Libra, the scales of balance.

After that moment of true equality between light minutes of the day and dark minutes, the dark then continues to grow day by day until the Winter Solstice when dark is at its zenith.

The Autumn Equinox is like a sunset time of year, as light begins to dim with a feeling of softening, slowing down, and drifting more inward.

It is Libra time of year, a time to begin to let go of action orientation, striving too hard, and self focus.    It is time to make connections.   Relationship begins to become more important as is listening to others.  Libra helps us to be more socially conscious, to be more civil and to find peace with others.   Libra helps us to see both sides of an issue and to balance the scales to find greater equality.   Justice is important to Libra, as is fairness. Libra is beauty, and visual art, and aesthetics are important. Of course one can make an argument that Libra time of year is the most beautiful as the leaves change into many lovely colors, like a floral arrangement. Libra’s weaknesses are self denial and a civility that represses being real and expressing openly.

In your life, as we move through the Autumn Equinox, you can meditate on peace and love, on finding balance inside your self and in your life.   It is a fine time also to think of your social values and how to put more focus now on your romantic relationships as well as your friendships.

Later this will be a most powerful Autumn Season, with two eclipses, an exact Uranus/Pluto meeting, Mercury Retrograde, and Comet Ison.

It has been a challenging week leading up the Equinox for many people.   As the guardian of the underworld Pluto changed directions forward,  it made a sextile aspect to god of gravity Saturn.   Many people faced some darker dramas in their life or inside themselves this past week.

In the greater world there were two explosively destructive acts committed as Pluto and Saturn were making aspect:   A terror attack in Kenya and  huge bombings in Pakistan and Iraq.  Together Pluto and Saturn can be ruthless and seemingly needlessly destructive.

The meaning of the events precipitated by Saturn and Pluto, however, is usually about endings that cannot be avoided, that hanging on too long will not be tolerated anymore.

Over the last two weeks, the situation in Syria has calmed down.  It calmed down in large part because polls showed that the people did not want the war, and Congress, the voice of the people, was also against the war.   I suspect that deep in his soul, President Obama does not want the war either.  He needed the people and Congress to bail him out of a most dangerous and destructive war.  He is now reportedly trying to make relationship with Iran to avoid a confrontation there.

Chemical weapons being used or not was not the real issue in Syria. The real issue for the Empire is still gaining control over the Middle East region and protecting Israel in the process.  But if the people are not behind the actions of attack, it will be difficult  for them to perpetrate an attack.  But they may still find a way to get the people involved, or they could go in anyway if they feel it is necessary to meet their ends.

But no matter what happens next, this agreement between Russia and the USA gives us hope that the Aquarian Age, a time of power to the people, a time of equal world powers, is picking up momentum.

Hopefully this breakthrough in Syria was a major breakthrough into the consciousness of a new age.

But coming up is a most powerful and potentially explosive Autumn Eclipse Season.    There will be a Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on November 3, and it will be seen on much of the east coast USA and central Africa, regions that will feel the greatest impact of intensity.

Some of our shadows and inner demons will likely rise to the surface, bringing most challenging events.  The economy and the Middle East will still be much of the focus of the coming transformational changes.

President Obama’s natal chart will be very affected by the coming eclipses, and his life will be going through much turmoil.   There are many various powers that will be challenging his soul and life.  I still believe he has a strong connection and maybe past life with Abraham Lincoln.

One can see, as we watch him struggle, a soul being pulled in many directions, trying to choose which path to take.  There is the power of the Economic and Military strength of the Empire, perhaps threatening his life; the desire to protect America from danger; the desire to do what is right as a human being for all concerned; the pull of ego as one considered the most important and powerful person in the world.

President Obama is of course a Leo, and as such ego can be an important motivation.  Obama has a south node of the Moon in Aquarius (where a soul’s past life resides and the Sun sign of Abraham Lincoln), with a north node (what a soul wants to integrate in the present lifetime) in “leading actor” Leo.

He is therefore pulled in two directions: one of equality and listening to all the voices in one’s community as Lincoln did; or being a strong leader and determining on one’s own what is best to do.

With Syria, at first he made a unilateral decision to go to war (being Leo); then he decided to ask Congress and the American people and work with Russia (being Aquarius)

This will be a very interesting but likely dangerous time period for the world coming up during the Autumn Eclipse Season.

In your own life, issues and intensity should be winding down this coming week, at least relative to what is soon coming our way.   We are in the waning days of the lunar cycle, waiting for a New Moon in Libra on October 4.

So for now, there is a plateau you can temporarily rest on this coming week, getting your self prepared for more intensity and change later in October.   The first Eclipse will be a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aries on October 18.    The first real winds of the Eclipse Season will be at that Libra New Moon on October 4. The greatest force of the Eclipse “storms” will be in early November, and the Eclipse Season will likely last until at least late November.

I will be doing a Youtube video forecast for the Autumn Eclipse Season on September 26, which you can see on Saturday the 28th of September.

See you next week,

Leo

Visioning a Better World and Astrology Forecast September 1-7.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on August 31, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Today as I write this, the Moon is darkening as we get closer to a New Moon in Virgo  on Wednesday September 5 at 7:36 AM EDT.

And as we move through the dark Moon phase of this lunar cycle, war is on the horizon.  Any day now deadly missiles will be fired from USA ships at sea onto Syrian land.  Usually around new moons is when attacks and bombings occur.  That is because of the darkness of the night with little light of the Moon.

Of course it is being said that this act of war by the United States is because of chemical weapon use on civilians by Syria.  And yet readers of this blog have known for a long time that Syria was in the cross-hairs of USA aggressive intentions for many months.  Western powers led by the USA and Israel have been waiting for just the right time to start this aggression.

Total domination of the Middle East requires the elimination of Iranian influence, and Syria (an Iranian ally) is one of the last obstacles left on the way to Iran.    If Syria is castrated of its independent strength, just as were Iraq and Libya before it, the Economic/Military Empire that already dominates much of the world will be much closer to complete control of the strategically important and resource rich Middle East.

This Superpower Empire, make no mistake about it however, is on its last legs of survival from an old and dying paradigm and age.  Empires have no place in the Aquarian Age of equality and Diversity in Unity.   The old Pisces Age began with the Roman Empire and the birth of the Christ.

The Pisces Age ends with a Superpower Empire on its last legs, and with a Christ consciousness needed more than ever to permeate the collective Soul of humanity.  The United States, when rid of its superpower status, will hopefully return to its core values and become an equal member of the world community.

The transition between ages will energetically intensify now as we move closer and through the very important Autumn Eclipse Season. The conflict in Syria and the Middle East will be one of the triggers for the transformation this Autumn and beyond. It is also likely that there will be a new economic downturn this Autumn also.

Middle East conflict and stock market downturn may bring the perfect storm of transformational change to our world.   The release and clearing of old stuck toxins in the body and soul of human culture, from the old paradigm of “us versus them” consciousness, will help us to more fully embrace the new energies from the Age of Aquarius.

So much from our established mainstream world and its institutions cannot be trusted or relied on anymore.  The mainstream media is corporate controlled and not reliable to deliver facts and truth.  Mainstream medicine is also corporate controlled through Big Pharma, Insurance companies, etc.   Mainstream mental health puts people in rigid boxes of pathology, precluding true soul understanding and healing.   Our food industry cannot be trusted either as big companies like Monsanto, with their GMO products, have so much power over choice in grocery stores.

And of course our government is largely corrupt, corporate controlled, insensitive to those who suffer, dysfunctional, and militaristic.   And most importantly, we the people are losing our voice in this system.    The people want labels for GMO products, largely have respect for so-called whistle-blowers like Edward Snowden, do not want war with Syria, and want some control over guns.

But for the most part we are not heard anymore through traditional channels.    And a new law was passed this week through Congress, with almost unanimous agreement, and signed by President Obama, potentially severely limiting our ability to be part of protests here in America.

Also the USA will attack Syria, even if not legally approved by the UN, the international community.  Our President, like other recent Presidents, is putting himself above American and international law.   And please remember, we are not being attacked by Syria!!  We were also not attacked by Viet Nam, Libya, or Iraq!

Is it not more and more obvious that we need a deep and powerful transformation in our world?  We need love, truth, justice, equality, compassion, fairness to rule our world, not egos, greed, dominance and power.

This is not about male or female, Democrat or Republican, Muslim or Christian, black or white, gay or straight.   This is about a vision of creating a world for all of us to live together, with guiding principles that will bring us all together in unity.

So this week, at the New Moon in Virgo on September 5, use Virgo discernment to look for “what is wrong that needs to be fixed”, whether that is in the world or in your own personal life.    We all make mistakes or get taken off track or say or do the wrong thing at times.  But beating ourselves up does not help.   It is better to recognize the mistake, fix or heal what has been damaged,  and commit to transforming the old ways to better ones.

This New Moon begins a lunar cycle that takes us through the Autumn Equinox.     There are challenging aspects beginning on the 9th of September- through the Equinox.    This attack on Syria is a kind of a match that starts the fires of transformation. These fires will burn more fiercely as we get into late October and November.

President Obama’s natal chart and hence life are deeply challenged during the Autumn Eclipse Season.   The first eclipse on October 18 is at his natal Saturn, suggesting serious tests to his soul.     And the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on November 3 squares his natal Sun in Leo.  Additionally Saturn will be square that same Sun in Leo in October and November bringing potentially dark heavy responsibilities or challenges to our president.

Barack Obama is neither hero or demon.  He is a man with a soul, and likely a pawn in the hands of the Military and Economic Empire.   We will all want to pray for his soul during this upcoming time period.

See you next week,

Leo

Getting it Together and Astrology Forecast August 25-31

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 24, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It is Sun in Virgo time of year, the transitional last month of summer before Autumn Equinox.  It is apt that at Virgo time of year school starts up again, as Virgo represents the need for “getting it together”, getting to work, and putting order in our lives.    It is time to at least begin to think about what needs to be repaired or fixed or healed.

Virgo is the Virgin, which is not directly related to sex.  Astrologically it is more about wanting purity or perfection.  And Virgo is great at finding what is impure or “what is wrong with this picture” in order to know what needs to be fixed to make things more pure or perfect.   It has a most critical eye, a talent for discrimination and discernment.  It often is most critical of itself, and can obsess on some fault or actually can obsess on most anything it puts its mind to.

Virgo needs order and simplification, and can be incredibly efficient.    As an earth sign, it likes to keep things “close to the ground” and does not like emotions or spirits or ideas to be out of control or “flying too high”.

It is skeptical by nature, in its head, and is good at analyzing and intellectually processing.   From that place it can get very locked in to what it is thinking about or focused on.

Virgo is also a mutable sign, and can be lead by others, not usually wanting to take charge or push anything.    It instead can be satisfied being of service and doing what needs to be done.

Virgo comes right after dramatic Leo, so instead is learning to be humble and not ostentatious.   Leo roars and Virgo is best being modest and “low-key”.

Please do not look for all Virgos to be tidy and neat.  All Virgos have a need for order, but this can come in varied ways, like mental order or not having any chaos or emotional upset. Sometimes the need for order is so strong inside them, that they need to let go and let life be “messy” instead, in order to take the pressure off.

So as you get in touch with the need now to put things in order, to get back to school or hard work again, keep in mind that it is still summer and we are still within a Leo lunar cycle, still needing to enjoy summer and have fun.

After September 5, when the Moon joins the Sun in Virgo for a Virgo New Moon, we then get more fully engaged with getting down to work or school, getting our lives simplified, fixed, and put back in order.

There is a major storm of life intensity coming this Autumn in our personal lives and in the greater world.   Much will shake up again as we experience another Eclipse Season in October/November, another Uranus/Pluto exact square, Mercury Retrograde, and the appearance of Comet Ison in late November.   That comet may be a bright light in the sky and another harbinger of meaningful change, or it could turn out dim and be a dud.

Nevertheless, those other planetary events promise a most powerful, transformational, and meaningful Autumn Season.

In fact the second Eclipse of the two this autumn  is a hybrid Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, to be seen on the eastern seaboard USA, in southern Europe, the Middle East, and much of Africa.  Those regions, therefore,  may also feel more of the intensity on an energetic and transformational level.

For now, however, life energies should be beginning to settle down this week and have less intensity, generally speaking.    The Sun in Virgo makes opposition to Neptune Monday/Tuesday, suggesting we let go and trust, even while we are trying hard to figure things out or make them work right.

Mars leaves “feelings” oriented and family focused Cancer for fun loving and creative Leo on Wednesday/Thursday, where it will stay until mid October.  Open up your creative energies and projects, and let your heart’s intuition lead your way more.

Big egos on the world stage will show off their imagined “royalty” and superiority during this Mars in Leo time period and drive world events.

Make no mistake about it,  world leaders from the western world are getting ready to militarily engage in Syria. The USA has sent war ships today to the shores near Syria.  They will be slyly setting us all up for military involvement in Syria. Remember Iraq and weapons of mass destruction, which did not exist?

Now it is chemical weapons being used by the government of Syria.   They are setting us up again for war.  If chemical weapons are indeed being used, there is evidence they are being used by all parties involved.  And this is a most complicated conflict, with many Middle Eastern countries, western powers, and Russia all strutting for positions of power in this prized geopolitical spot on the Earth.  The instability also in Egypt and elsewhere since the Arab Spring promises powerful change in the Middle East and the world

We are moving into a dark cocoon of turmoil, which will eventually birth a butterfly of an Age of Aquarius.

Meditate and pray this conflict can be as tempered as possible, and that lessons will learned sooner than later, paving the way for a more graceful healing crisis for our human family here on Earth.

From late September through November the emotional and energetic levels of intensity will increase exponentially, especially in late October and November.

This means each of us will be challenged to stay on our soul path, to be present, to be aware of where the Universe is asking us to be open to healing and transformation in our consciousness and lives.

Sometimes what is mostly going on is not necessarily about making major life moves, but more about shifting the patterns.   We are sometimes so controlled by our early programming, by the wounds, traumas, and abuses from our lives.  These transformational times can bring us to the core of these traumas and programmed patterns, and in the process of exposing the wounds again, in sometimes new forms, we are given the opportunity to make deep change, experience deep healing, and be “reborn” into new ways of thinking, feeling and experiencing.

From these new places in our consciousness and souls we sometimes require new relationships or careers or homes, etc.  But often all we need is to be liberated from the stuck places in our minds and hearts, so we can live more healthy and whole lives.

See you next week,

Leo
