The greatest  part of this coming week is a continuation of the previous week.  The Moon is still moving down through its darkening, waning half of the lunar cycle.

The Sun is still in a fix-it, mend-it, heal-it, perfect-it, maintain-it, clean it up, make it more orderly Virgo energetic. Venus and Mars have joined the Sun in Virgo, providing even more energy for developing physical purity and critical discernment.

That discernment can feel quite judgmental at times, and judging oneself can be especially hurtful.

A positive use of this Virgo energy is to help you to see the trees in the forest, and each branch and leaf of those trees.  Virgo can gently help make everything be more real; can tell you who or what may not be good for you; and can bum-out any overly romanticized illusion you may have conjured up.

And yes Virgo can be very good at bringing things “down to Earth”, more simple and ordered. It is the most gentle and flexible of the 3 Earth signs.

The 4th quarter of the lunar cycle ends at the New Moon in Virgo on Friday August 30 at 6:37 AM EDT.   It becomes a New Moon because the Moon catches up with the Sun at the same degree of the same sign. In this case it is almost 7 degrees of Virgo.

The slow come-down of the 4th quarter Moon shifts into a let’s get going and get things done New Moon in Virgo.

During the darkening skies, as the Moon finishes the last quarter of its cycle, it is a great time for meditation, intentions, prayers, and positive visualization.

Then when the first sliver of light shows a day or so after the actual time of the New Moon, the new beginnings come alive. Saturday night of August 31 is when that light should appear.

I know you see the grand scale of transformation and change that is brewing in our country and world. I have mentioned many times how the Military/Industrial Complex of the Empire is beginning to transform.

This takes place in the economy and the military/police segments of American society.

The economy showed big signs of trouble this last week with a very aggressive trade war with China breaking open. There is little doubt what we face ahead in the stock market and economy.

And the USA is making enemy of so many peoples. We are isolating from the rest of the world with our current focus on Nationalism. This is what happened just before World War II.  Germany, Japan, Italy and others became much more nationalistic.

On Wednesday August 28 Mars in Virgo makes trine with Uranus in Taurus. This energy should shake things up, but not out of control.  Stuck energies or patterns get some assistance in breaking away.

The next day on August 29, the Sun also trines Uranus, continuing the theme of breaking open what has been stuck or complacent.  And on that same day Mercury leaves Leo and enters Virgo, building up even more Team Virgo.

Late that night, on its way to a new moon the next day, the Moon also enters Virgo.

We are getting used to this new reality we are in.  But more importantly it has been feeling for some time now that we are waiting for something, and that we cannot make decisions or find direction until it happens.

Most of us know by now that the Trump world is real, not an illusion or bad dream.

Virgo will help us now to face up to what is really happening and figure out how to make things better.

Most of the really important work now is in our consciousness.  The parts of our consciousness that are a result of programming received by the culture and family, needs to be released.

Thinking for oneself is essential in the Age of Aquarius.  Diversity within Unity is a pillar concept of the new world. And diversity requires individualism.  And the sign Aquarius is quite arguably the most individualized of all.

Aquarius needs to know and accept that it is different, Often times that may get one to feel they are weird and will never fit in.

And that is the process of Aquarius:  honoring the differences while looking to join with others in unity.

Thinking for oneself often begins by speaking up to parents or other authority figures. There is a rebellion of sorts and a feeling of being different and not needing to be or think what others want you to think or be. The teen years are a usual time for getting more independent and feeling more separate from family and culture.

But at the same time teens are looking for a group or clique or club or team that one feels “at home” in.

And now many people feel lost.  Their old allegiances no longer work for them. They do not know where or how they fit in anymore.

I have been seeing so many families breaking apart over the current political and cultural battles.

Some people cannot understand anyone being for Trump, and are amazed when some family member has that allegiance.

Facebook battles have also intensified, with some really nasty comments made to one another.

People in each camp feel so distant from each other in their beliefs.

I have read in Civil War books how one brother fought with the North while another brother fought with the Confederacy.

It seems almost surreal how many opinions are similar to back then.

The red states, which are mainly in the South, fall in line for Trump and his values and policies.  The blue states, mainly up north and on the coasts, have values more aligned with Obama’s values and policies.

Many of those  red state people really hated Obama, and Trump fed their anger with his claims that Obama was not born in the USA and instead was a Muslim wanting to bring down the country.

And now blue state people hate Trump and want him gone as quickly as possible.

It is Civil War again. Remember that the North won the war, ended slavery and plantations, and tried to bring the country back together again.

But surprising to some, they never did truly come back together again.

Wholeness and connectedness is important for an individual, country, community, family, etc.

A breaking apart, however, is part of the process of transformation.  The old formation is not working anymore, is not healthy or growing and evolving.  This happens with relationships too.

Each member of the relationship is growing in a different direction from the other member. They then either go their separate ways, or else figure out how to come back together from their new states of being. They build a new Wholeness and connectedness, one that has evolved into a better and healthier way of being.

Our country and world are experiencing such a transformation.

And since this is about a changing of Ages, such a big cycle of transformation, after over two thousand years of being in the Age of Pisces; we are collectively changing at the very core of our beings in order to be aligned with this Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Down to New Reality and Astrology Forecast September 2-8.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we come to the end of Summer Eclipse Season 2018.  So energetically there is less force and power pushing us to transform and change. 

Yet there will be more in the way of important events to follow, because what has been “shaken up”, “broken  down” and “broken through” during transformational Eclipse Season, (as also Mars and Mercury were Retrograde), is now being collected, put together and being decided.

Especially since Mars went Direct, the movement now is toward action and manifestation.

And that means events, that are the natural result of the recent transformation that has brought us all into this new era or chapter of our lives, are ready to unfold.

These important events will begin to define this new chapter.

In the greater world, there is so much that is simmering on the edge of the cliff of big change.

The Middle East is so on the edge of jumping off into major conflict.   Russia, Iran, Hamas, Iraq, and Syria are joining together. The USA, Israel, and Saudi Arabia are running counter to those countries.  Something is close to breaking open. Many other countries will be choosing sides as a result.

North Korea and the USA are breaking apart from their Summit’s agreements. China, Japan, and South Korea are greatly affected by th.

China is in a trade war with the USA, who is also in a trade war with many of its allies. The world’s stock markets and economies are dependent on world trade.

There is a serious culture war going on in the USA, and that culture war is separating families, just like happened in the Civil War in the USA

The Mueller investigation is now picking up steam and appears headed for eventual impeachment proceedings.

All of these issues are looking down from that cliff’s edge.

And when it all breaks open, which is a big part of this new era, our world will change and transform in ways that facilitate the consciousness for the Age of Aquarius.

Many who read this have already begun transforming their consciousness and lives in ways that align with this New Age.

And many others will wake up and join the wave of change as our world transforms.

But of course others will get more dug in to the consciousness and ways of the old world paradigm.

That resistance to the new world will cause much turmoil and distress to our world, but it actually is part of the natural process of transformation.

In your own life, when you have been motivated to transform your life through ending of relationships, or jobs, or whatever felt secure; you know you had to move through your own resistance to that change.

And this is a changing of Ages, an enormous earth shaking event for our human family.

Of course there is resistance, especially from those who have known privilege in the old world.  But like it or not, the new age is inevitable.  We can go kicking and screaming or we can instead allow the grace of the Universe to take us forward.

Death of the old is usually feared, and birth of the new can feel so filled with chaos and fear of the unknown.

But the new can also be filled with such feelings of liberation, hope, and joy.   It can bring a clean slate, one that can be filled with new intention and purpose.

Just after we experienced Mercury and Mars going Direct at the end of Eclipse Season, two iconic figures of our collective past died: John McCain and Aretha Franklin.

Death can bring feelings of love and affection for what or who has passed.  The old age and paradigm were not all bad. For most they contained many great memories and many people with whom we shared love.

This week we move through the 4th and last quarter of the Moon, which begins with the Moon in Gemini Sunday September 2.

This last quarter of the lunar cycle, which shows our Moon slowly losing its light, which people all over the globe will experience together, effectively brings an end to Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

In the middle of this light dimming week, Saturn changes direction from Retrograde to Direct on September 6.

Saturn, the symbolic gravity of the hand of time, tells us as it moves direct that there is no running away from time.  And the clock, as Saturn goes Direct, is starting up again, another sign of forward movement for our collective and personal lives.

Then three days later, on September 9 at 2:01 PM EDT, there is the New Moon in Virgo that symbolically begins in reality our new chapter.

It is time to know the changes are real, not just academic or conceptual.

Virgo makes things real, though sometimes that reality is just seeing the glass as half empty instead of half full.

So it will be important now to discern if your attitude is reflective of a need to come down to reality to face the truth, or instead is it a heavy dose of pessimism?

Nevertheless, it is time at this New Moon in Virgo to ground, simplify, and humbly move forward toward manifesting what has only previously been imagined.

For some it will be a time to fix what has been broken, mend what has been torn apart,  and heal what has been suffered.

On a mundane level, many people after the Virgo New Moon go to doctors or dentists or mechanics, etc.

Others feel a need to get down to work and to put more order into their lives.

Virgo time also can bring some people to more worry and stressful self criticism. If the criticism moves you to make needed changes that is good. But if that criticism is not constructive, and instead stresses you to the point of self hatred and/or depression or passivity, it is not right.

It is also end of summer in the northern hemisphere, as Autumn Equinox is only a couple weeks away.  So the Virgo New Moon represents another ending, but also a transition month into the beauty and grace of Autumn.

There are so many temptations in life now that tend to take us away from what is natural. Our devices, our tightly scheduled lives, our sitting down inside our homes and places of work all tend to keep us from what is natural and from our own nature.

Astrology is an extension of nature, a reading of the natural cycles and energies of life.

It can help us to be more a part of what is natural, but it also takes an effort to cross the threshold out of our self contained bubbles of existence, and into the “out of our control” movement of natural forces both inside and outside ourselves. The effort is worth it.

Till next week,

Leo
