Pluto Releasing the Old and Astrology Forecast April 22-28

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This past week we entered a whole New Chapter of both our collective  and personal lives.

That does not mean that it has been or will be smooth sailing now. In fact for many people there were already obstacles to work through after that New Moon in Aries last week.

Gravity ruling, “stop sign” Saturn was especially strong last week too. And though Mercury went Direct on the same day as the New Moon in Aries, for many people full clarity has not been found yet.

It takes Mercury several days after it has gone Direct to return to its usual speed, and during that time the fog may just slowly lift from our view ahead.

Make no mistake however, we have turned a corner, and are now moving forward in a new phase of life.

There is some purging to be done now, however, as Pluto has been slowing down in order to go Retrograde on Sunday April 22.

So we have been experiencing Pluto’s energy the last couple of days and will continue  to do so much of this coming week.

Pluto is a very passionate and intense ruler of the underworld, and as such brings us down into the subconscious so we can be more more conscious of what is needing to be experienced and hopefully released.

If you are drawn this week to look at the past, past events, and past patterns of thought and behavior, it is happening so you can release, let go of what is not in alignment in this New Chapter.

You do not need anymore the same old inner stories that have become heavy baggage in your consciousness and life.

So use this time now to let go of your grip on that which is weighing you down psychologically, emotionally, spiritually and/or physically.

We will in late Spring be moving much more rapidly through this New Chapter, which is in essence a new frequency and dimension in our consciousness.

But for this week, Pluto changes directions Sunday the 22nd, and then on Thursday the 26th Mars collides in conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn.  This is potentially a very intense and powerful meeting between these two planets.

And approximately 3 days before that Mars in Capricorn sextiles Jupiter in Scorpio.

Those two planetary events trigger the Jupiter sextile Pluto aspect of April 14, which formed a Yod or “finger of god” with the USA natal Mars. 

Less than a day before that Yod, Syria was bombed by western nations, which points the finger to potential war in the Middle East.

But on the contrary, peace ostensibly looks more promising in Korea, as North Korea made some big compromises prior to its coming meetings with South Korea and the USA.

This week North Korean and South Korean leaders meet in a summit on April 27.  With the triggering of the Yod this week, we will get a better sense of where the finger is pointing on the Korean Peninsula- toward or away from USA conflict.

Of course the issue of gun  ownership, and the issue of police killings of black men are also part of this turning point around the USA Mars in the “finger of god” alignment now. Pay close attention to what direction all these issues are turning toward this week.

In personal lives these Plutonian interactions will tend to bring up old stories and patterns, and could also bring up more volatile emotions, especially between people in relationships.

Please do your best to know these events are happening in order to help to purge what needs to be let go. Perhaps you may feel you are being taken back to old stuff you thought had been resolved or released already.

But what is coming up is not you going backwards, it is instead an opportunity for a deeper cleaning to occur inside your mind and soul.

Also the intensity may be rising in order to help you make transformational breakthroughs that are important on your path through this new phase of life.

The old energies, stories and patterns want to be transformed into new consciousness and ways, and you can be proactive in the process if you stay conscious and aware.

Is it not totally apparent now how much everything is shifting, changing, and transforming? It is beginning to feel like the ’60s and ’70s may have been mild in comparison.

This current wave of change is not for the opportunity to put bandages on old issues so we can later go back into the same old dysfunctional ways.

Our world is transforming in ways we cannot completely comprehend yet. And each of our lives is transforming as part of that process.

Relationships especially may be rocky now, as we navigate balancing our rapid individual growth with trying to stay connected in our relationships.

It may not be totally apparent how to achieve that balance or sometimes even to know whether the relationship will last.

Will the New Chapter keep you together or will it need to bring you on separate paths?

Some of you have already been given some indication which way that is turning now, but others need more time to be able to feel more certain.

This week has some volatility and releasing necessary, but also with the Taurus influence there is a firming up of what has previously begun.

Aries is a force for moving forward, like buds coming through the branches in springtime.

Yet Taurus, where the Sun and Venus are now, stabilizes and allows to blossom what has begun.  So for the most part the month of May will stabilize, manifest, and make more solid.

Then in June, with the energies of Gemini strong, we move faster forward through our New Chapter.  Events will pour much faster through that portal that was opened at the Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus on April 15.

That was a turning point weekend for us individually and globally.

In May/June we will have a much better sense of where the Trump investigations are going. We will also know much more where the Middle East is going and where the Korean situation is going. There are many important events already scheduled for those months for those issues.

This week also has some lighter energy coming in as Venus leaves Taurus and enters Gemini on Tuesday the 24th. It will stay in Gemini until May 19.

Venus in Gemini brings with it light social interaction, more mental agility in relating, a desire for more talking and communicating, and generally also more flirting and light teasing.

That should lighten the focused intensity this week that will also be present at the usually profound Full Moon experience on Sunday April 29. It is a Scorpio Full Moon which is also called the Wesak Full Moon, often related to the birth of Buddha and Buddha light rays coming through our human experience.

Contact Deborah Tallarico at moonsoul9@aol.com for more info on joining the online global ceremony at the Spiritual Renaissance Center for that Wesak Full Moon.

We will write more about that Scorpio Wesak Full Moon next week.

Always keep in mind that the transformation we are experiencing, as challenging as that  is sometimes, is bringing us into the consciousness and ways of the Age of Aquarius.

This New Chapter we have entered is an important vehicle in time that is moving us more strongly into the new dimensions and frequencies of that New Age.

Till next week,

Leo

Black Panther and Astrology Forecast April 8-14

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we enter the darkening last quarter of the lunar cycle and the last week of Mercury Retrograde.

The actual beginning of the last quarter Moon happens in Capricorn early morning of Sunday April 8. It signifies Capricorn waiting patience holding back the new beginning of Aries.

This whole week shows nighttime energy, a symbol of the power of the Feminine.

The Black Panther has been showing itself to me just before my writing this blog today.

She is a symbol of the Dark Feminine, of Mystery, and she is strongest right at a New Moon, as that is the darkest time of the lunar cycle, right before the dawn of the Moon’s crescent light.

The Black Panther therefore represents death and rebirth, which happens as we transition from last quarter Moon to the New Moon in Aries on April 15. At that moment of transition, all is unknown and a mystery- no more past and a future not yet known.

We have been letting you know the importance of that New Moon in Aries, which happens to be closely conjunct the awakening lightning of Uranus. It will also be square the deeply transformational Pluto, which we will write more about next week.

So this week, before that New Moon, allow your self to go deeper into your own inner night, so you can release as much psychological baggage as possible. If you are confronted by your past, especially your old stories from the past, do not be afraid it is back in your life again.

It is showing up so you can see it another time before it is purged from the deep well inside your soul.

You no longer need to hold onto old demons or old ego stories that keep you chained to the past.

This is a big and important New Moon in Aries, on the same day as Mercury goes Direct.  So lightening your load of old garbage will make you more able to enter your New Chapter without undue restrictions.

During this Mercury Retrograde, have old friends or lovers come back to you in dreams or waking flashes of memory or even back in physical reality?

If so they are to remind you of that which has helped to create an old story or a continuing dysfunctional pattern you no longer need carry.

And they also may represent a part of your self you have abandoned that now needs to be re-membered in your soul and psyche.

The dark passage of the Black Panther is shown also by a Sun square Pluto aspect midweek.

The Sun is challenged then by “guardian of underworld” Pluto, darkening the light of the Sun.  Black Panther has also been represented in myth as that which swallow the light of a Solar Eclipse, which is always part of a New Moon.

On Saturday the 14th, a day before the Aries New Moon, bright inspirational Jupiter is in sextile aspect to the same darkening Pluto.

This sextile forms a Yod or “Finger of God” with the USA natal Mars in Gemini. That Mars in Gemini forms a very close conjunction with Trump’s natal Sun and opposite his natal Moon in Sagittarius.

the Yod forming with the USA Mars symbolizes an important turning point for USA military and police business. And of course Trump with his natal chart is an important player in this turning point.

It is quite revealing that there are important events less than a month after the New Moon in Aries.   

There is a summit between North and South Korean presidents in late April and a potential summit between Trump and Kim Jong Un in May. This meeting will bring peace or war to the world

Also in early May the USA and Trump decide whether to continue with the deal struck by President Obama with Iran.  If sanctions on Iran are brought back, that will nullify the Iran deal with the USA and bring increased danger in the Middle East. If the deal is kept peace will likely stay intact.

And also in mid May the USA is scheduled to move their embassy to Jerusalem after the recent declaration by president Trump that Jerusalemsy is the eternal Capitol of Israel.

The Palestinians and Muslim world see Jerusalem as their sacred city and claim the eastern half as their Capitol.

So you can see how putting the USA embassy there is a potentially triggering event, one that could bring renewed violence to the region. If Trump turns around and does not build the embassy, there will be a big shift away from war.

So it is easy to see how the Yod represents an important military turning point for the USA.

There are important new beginnings happening one way or another soon after the Yod and New Moon in Aries.

And this is true for your own life too, most especially if you have natal planets in late Aries. If so these new beginning will be very important ones for you.

Yet for everyone, we are at a point of “ready or not here we come”, as used to be yelled during childhood “hide and seek” games, signifying when there was no more time to try to find a place to hide.

And we will also not be able to hide in the slumber of winter rest anymore  It will be time to wake up at the Aries New Moon, especially so as awakening Uranus is an integral part of that New Moon structure.

And as Mercury will also be going Direct that day, the recent sleep will be beginning to lift from our eyes, in order to soon see what is happening and what direction to move toward.

Just as the aforementioned world events do not come until a month or so after the New Moon in Aries and Mercury Direct, you also can expect there to be some time before real clarity, direction, inspiration and/or important personal events are formed.

Best to see the New Moon/Mercury Direct time as an energetic turning point into the action of your new beginnings.. Be present to feel that energetic shift in the days surrounding the event.

Keep in mind however that this week is the week leading up to the New Moon in Aries and Mercury Direct, not the week it happens.

The light and energies are dimming this week, so you can be more immersed in your own inner consciousness.

The Moon (an important symbol of the Black Panther) will be darkening more and more each day this week.  And when it is totally dark before and during the New Moon in Aries, it is a perfect time to meditate, to make intention, to pray, to use visualization as a tool to co-create with the Universe.

This week shows the Black Panther getting stronger and stronger. It is interesting how the movie Black Panther is so popular in our culture now.

And synchronistically the issue of killing unarmed Black men by police has been recently triggered by the shooting of an unarmed Black man in Sacramento California.

Black Panther also represents the moment between death and life, a true time of transformation.

And the turning point at the New Moon in Aries with Mercury Direct on April 15 is the point between death of the old and birth of the new.

The Age of Aquarius is being born from the ashes of the Age of Pisces.  And no matter which way we turn after the Finger of God points the way, we still will be getting closer to the Age of Aquarius.

The only question is whether the path ahead will be rugged or more graceful.

Till next week,

Leo

The Fool and Astrology Forecast March 25-31

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 24, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Remember Y2K?  Remember the Mayan Calendar date in December 2012?  And there were many other times that it was predicted we were moving into some transition into End Times or a New World?

Look around you now.  Can you not sense that the true time of transition is Now?

Today as I write there are many people all over the USA and world who are standing up and declaring it is  time now to make tighter gun laws that will make our lives saner and safer.  March for Our Lives will change how we operate in our world, as is also true for the Me Too movement.

And it has taken horrible incidents to wake us up to the need for these changes.

So look around you now, out at the world.  The Stock Market is tanking as we predicted.  This is only the beginning, as we are in the process of transforming the economic system that has been running our world. The new system will be more equitable and will lessen the disparity between grotesquely wealthy and tragically poor. The values that Bernie Sanders represents are needed to assist this economic transformation.

And the other half of the Military/Economic Complex that President Eisenhower warned us about (the military), is also on the verge of huge shakeups.

Trump has brought in hawkish men into his administration, men who will be in important positions in regard to foreign affairs. Pompeo is now Secretary of State, and Bolton is now the National Security Counsel leader.

They will greatly influence the North Korea, Iran, Russia, China, and Syria situations.  You can expect wars unless something miraculous happens. A Trump drastic change of heart and mind; the end of the Trump presidency; or extraterrestrial intervention would qualify for such miracles.

If these wars do erupt, they will make us feel more deeply the horrible dangers we have put ourselves in.  And like Me Too and March for Our Lives we will be standing up in protest all over the world against the abuse of power that nuclear weapons are reflective of.

As a result, power in the world will move toward being more evenly spread; and nuclear weapons will  need to be wiped off the face of this world.

Yes now is the time we have been waiting for, and we are the ones we have been waiting for!

We need to stand up like these young people from Parkland Florida have been standing up! Civil Disobedience is the way forward into the Age of Aquarius.

And after April 15, events will begin to pour through the opened Portal, as at the same time more light and love will be pouring through.

That also means we will be even more pushed to work with our blocks, our old patterns, our traumas, our belief systems, our tired old ego stories, our identification with being   victims, and of course all the programming from the culture that has sought to make us all sheep.

As we clear these blockages, we clear the way for the Great Awakening, for the Truth and Love that are the foundation for our new world.

This week we are just recently moved into Mercury Retrograde.  It is a time to process more deeply, to fix what needs to be fixed and heal what needs to be healed. It is time to  reflect on the past so we can put it behind us.

People from our past may come to us in dreams, vivid memories or even in person.  This comes to us so we can put the past into perspective, learn what needs to be learned so we can lessen the load of our baggage moving forward.

We are clearly in a New Chapter of life, collectively and personally.  And the portal opening after April 15 will accelerate our transition through this New Chapter.

The “old normal” wants to be released, and you may not find a “new normal” for awhile.

So now can feel rather insecure at times, as what we considered normal is being left behind. But this also means that creative energies are more alive than usual, which is good for new ideas and creating new ways to be.

Besides Mercury being Retrograde this week, we also are moved into the second quarter of the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the Pisces New Moon on March 17. Plus 4 planets are in action oriented, take charge Aries.

So while energies are intensifying and sometimes feel like they are pushing us forward, remember we are at the same time put on “Pause” with Mercury Retrograde.

Do not be impulsive now.  Let this time period play out. Look before you jump.  The Fool Card need not be played now,  though a week from Sunday is April Fool’s Day on Easter Sunday.

Keep in mind that Mercury is a trickster, especially when in Retrograde.  So be alert to your mind playing tricks on you now.

The day before April Fool’s Day is a Full Moon in Libra on Saturday March 31 at 8:37 AM EDT.

That means the Sun is in Aries directly opposite the Full Moon in Libra.

Me first or us together; conflict or peace; action or deliberation, letting it all out or being conscious of social norms are potential themes for this Full Moon.

And remember that a Full Moon and Mercury Retrograde together can make things rather foggy and unclear.

Do not make any important decisions or drastically change directions from what you had previously chosen.

And during Mercury Retrograde we often question what we are doing, where we are going, or what have previously decided.  Wait for a week or more after Mercury goes back Direct before making the decision or changing directions.

And sometimes electronics can go haywire and communication can be confused.  Pay closer attention than usual to what has been written and what has been said.

Be very careful not jumping to conclusions with texts. Make sure the other person understands what you meant in your texting.

Start getting clear about the values and priorities that are important to you as we move into this New Chapter of our lives.  Those values are the foundation of your new world.

There is nothing to be afraid of now if you believe Love, Truth, and higher meaning are the pillars of this New World. Your view on life will then usually be of a glass half full.

If you instead see all as meaningless, random, and fear filled, then the glass of your life will end up looking half empty.

Sure things are looking scary sometimes out in the world, but know the movement overall is about death of the old world and birth of a new one, the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Mercury Retrograde, Spring Equinox and Astrology Forecast March 18-24

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 17, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week with Mars entering Capricorn, New Moon  in Pisces, Spring Equinox and Mercury Retrograde.

This means the energy fields we move within are changing this week.  The changes will shift our consciousness and lives in preparation for the Portal Opening on April 15.

It is obvious now that the greater world and culture we reside within is in a chaotic and not so predictable state of being.   The White House is reflective of this state of being, and it is in shambles, and always in some sort of transition.

And of course whether you feel in alignment with the new Administration or not, this Administration and its volatility are a symbol of the condition of the USA right now.

The Stock Market and economy; the Mueller probe; the porn actress’s accusations; the growing dangers with Iran, Syria, Israel, North Korea; the trade wars; and the macho strutting with Russia and China put all of us on our toes waiting for even greater changes.

We are in the midst of an enormous transformation of the country and world.

Trump is not causing the chaotic climate that makes us ripe for such transformation. He is instead a lead actor on the world stage, just the right actor to help facilitate world events that will take us to the edge of darkness,  so we can call on the Phoenix who will rise from the ashes of our old paradigm’s burning.

Some are already getting into survivalist mode, while others not as alarmed are  still being called to make changes in their consciousness and lives, changes that are aligned with the world we are moving into.

Others of us are not sure what direction to move toward, and are seemingly waiting for events to unfold to show the way.

The next few weeks will not show us clear direction, however, especially so because Mercury is going Retrograde on March 22 at 8:19 PM EDT.

As usual the ‘re’s will in charge during Mercury Retrograde: rewind, reflect, readjust, rebalance, remind, realign.

There is much processing to do now, as it is not time now to move toward bottom line decisions and even bottom line logical answers.

Allow Mercury Retrograde to have you go inward to reflect, to question what has been previously understood or decided, to bring to you memories of the past and to bring back people to you from your past.

The people from the past will likely not stay with you after they return, though sometimes they do.  The questioning of previous understandings and decisions does not mean you will truly change your direction from what you have chosen, but sometimes it does.

The New Moon in Pisces this Saturday the 17th was at 9:12 AM EDT.  Though it is a New Moon, Pisces is not a sign of action to move forward.

Pisces brings everything together in integration and unity, to get ready for the movement forward later, this time after the New Moon in Aries on April 15.

Pisces is the sign for the last month of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the transition sign for moving into new beginnings of Spring.

As such we now do soul searching, shadow integration, and getting in touch with deeper feelings;  especially feelings of sadness and grief, of fading memories, of snapshots of previously not remembered early life events.

We face ghosts of the past,  want to resolve old issues, and hopefully find some closure.

This Pisces time we are doing even deeper soul diving than usual, wanting to gather everything together in anticipation of the coming forward movement in our lives, collectively and personally.

There may be some energetic confusion as we also experience the beginning of spring this week.  It is on Tuesday March 20 at 12:15 PM EDT.

This is the first moment of the Sun’s movement into Aries, as it does to begin every Spring Equinox.

Aries is the force of new life buds bursting through the branches. It is a baby being born, a teenager’s awkward movement form childhood to adulthood.  It is a new challenge, a competition, showing a new way, standing up for yourself or what you believe in, being brave even when you are afraid,  fighting the good fight, self assertion, self honoring, alpha attitude, and taking action.

The confusion may come from the fact that Mercury is going Retrograde and there is a need to process and rewind before truly moving forward.

So use this Spring Equinox Aries entry to begin to wake yourself up! Winter is over, even if the weather still feels like Winter.  The turning point energetically is happening this week, so get in touch with that energy and wake your self from the doldrums of Winter, from being kinda depressed from such a harsh and difficult winter.

No need to go fast forward, just wake up. Soon there will be the need for action and for fresh events to manifest. But not now. Even action oriented Mars is being affected by the gravity of Capricorn now.

It moved into Capricorn on the 17th at the New Moon in Pisces. It will stay in Capricorn until May 16, when it goes into Aquarius.

But this year Mars will go back into Capricorn from mid August till Mid September.

The reason is because Mars goes Retrograde on June 26, then retraces its previous steps.

Mars in Capricorn takes away the spontaneous and sometimes impulsive instinct of Mars.

Mars puts on a uniform of military or police when in Capricorn, giving it discipline and boundaries, rules and structure to act within.

So with Mars now in Capricorn, it is time to ground your actions, to make goals and commitments, to organize and plan, to make manifest.

Just remember that we are in Mercury Retrograde until April 15, so there may be some confusion till then, and if you are not that confused, you will still need to wait before manifesting or making absolute statements.

After April 15 the train of our lives starts it engines, but remember that Mercury will just begin to be Direct that day, so total clarity may still need to form, and movement will still not be fast forward. Big events will likely be a few weeks or a few months away then.

So with all this knowledge look at the country and world.  The White House will still be rearranging the deck chairs of its Titanic voyage.

There  will be more employee firings and hirings this coming month, more drama and confusion, more setting the stage for coming events.

Trump is planning to meet with Kim Jong Un in April or May; the USA is moving its embassy to Jerusalem in May. Other important world events will spring forward in April, May and later this year.

Your life and consciousness are working out  what needs to be worked out now. Do your best not to judge your self now or what you did or didn’t do in the past.

Let go of old stories that keep you stuck.  Let go of old stories that make you feel like a victim or loser or failure or horrible person.

The past, no matter what it was, is a stepping stone for your life as it grows and transforms into one of purpose and authenticity, one of love and forgiveness.

Love yourself from all time periods and ages of your life. Have compassion for your self, for the seeming mistakes you might have made. Forgive yourself and others as best you can organically.

It is almost time for us all to move forward more fully into this New Chapter of our lives on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

And the less baggage we take with us from our past the better.  No you will not be able to tie a pretty bow on all those traumas and disappointments, disillusions and heart wounds.

But you can forgive, learn to trust enough, and have faith all happens with meaning.

You can gain enough closure to be able to move forward. But do not despair if all has not been worked out to total satisfaction. It never is perfect.

Till next week,

Leo

Stand Up and Astrology Forecast March 11-17

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 10, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Most of this week has us in the last quarter of the lunar cycle.   That is until The New Moon in Pisces on Saturday March 17 at 9:12 AM EDT.

Yes for most we will be on Daylight Savings Time starting this Sunday the 18th.  So in a way we get mixed messages.   We get more waking light minutes of the day, while still in the dark of Winter and while moving through the last and darkening phase of the Moon.

Spring will begin next week on March 20th, but then will be closely followed by Mercury going Retrograde on March 22.

There is so much swirling in the world around us now, and much of it brings uncertainty and has us moving into unknown territory.

Trump and Kim Jong Un of North Korea seem to have agreed on a personal meeting that will apparently concentrate on North Korea denuclearizing.  With Mercury going Retrograde soon, there will likely be many difficulties on the path toward a meeting and denuclearizing.

Between now and April 15 at the Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus, Mercury going back Direct, and a Yod Finger of God aspect with the USA natal Mars, much will be shifting and changeable. 

That Finger of God to the USA natal Mars will be a major turning point for the USA military, the police, and gun laws.

North Korea will either look like a major conflict is on the way, or instead it will be more certainly moving toward a peaceful solution.  The meeting between the two leaders is intended to be by May.

And the USA is moving its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem also in May.  This could be cause for much anger in the Arab and Muslim world.

So you can see how the April 15 portal opening that includes the Yod to the USA Mars, may play out with North Korea and Israel/Palestine.

Keep in mind also that Donald Trump was born on a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius.  That new moon has the Sun at 22+ degrees Gemini and his Moon at 21+ degrees of Sagittarius. The USA natal Mars is at 21+ degrees of Gemini, so you can see that what is coming will powerfully affect both the USA and Donald Trump.

A few days later on the 18th, Saturn goes Retrograde and its gravitational certainty will be circulating strongly in our collective energy field. The feeling of fate is in the air then

Make no mistake about it, mid April is a major turning point for this country and world.

That does not mean big events will necessarily explode on that day, but it does mean the portal will open for major events coming soon afterward.

The stock market and economy also deserve attention now and after the portal opens.

Trump’s presidency also is being threatened now, as the Russia investigation keeps picking up steam. After the 15th events will accelerate even more.

Remember however, that this coming week of March 11- 17 will bring energies that are moving inward and yin-ward, downward and for finishing up and processing.

So many personal lives are now up in the air, waiting for coming changes or uncertain what to do or what direction to take.

And certainty will be even more elusive as we get into Mercury Retrograde soon.

So do your best now to be patient and wait. Otherwise you will get anxious and stressed, or depressed.  Sometimes we must wait for clarity and direction to appear, as linear bottom line answers do not easily form.

Yet there is much to be gained in the process of waiting.  Our souls can be very enriched while processing our thoughts and feelings, while meeting up against our hopes and fears, while learning more about ourselves and others.

In the greater world, so much has shifted in the last couple of years or so.    The paradigm the world has known is obviously shifting, even with the difficulties and disappointments we are now experiencing.

We are also being reminded of what is wrong with our world. Why has fame and fortune become the American Dream?  Even in many so-called liberal circles, wealth and notoriety, pedigree and privilege are such a high priority to gain.

Where have the values of our “better angels” gone?  Where has our empathy and compassion gone? How about kindness, integrity, truth, honesty, dignity, respect, and heart centered love?

Why does it seem that money, power, and privilege have become culturally more important than those values?

What kind of world are we delivering to our kids and grandkids?

I heard one young man who survived the Florida school massacre say to Bill Maher on his show:  Paraphrased he passionately said that previous generations have f’d up our world and so this new generation will have to fix it.

And are we setting an example for them? How many have given up their more idealistic  values from their youth because the “real” world has disillusioned and disappointed them, so they decided to play the game instead of keeping the integrity of their better values? And in the process, what has happened to their souls.

For those who have done that, you can work to bring those values back now so we can fight with these kids for a New Paradigm for living with each other and or Earth home.

And following the rules is not the same as holding better values.  Inner values reflect what your mind, heart, and soul know to be true, known to be what brings us together with respect and love.

It is time for each of us to speak up for what we know is right, as has begun to happen with women who are speaking up like never  before, and like how young people are beginning to speak up about guns, etc.

Yet it is time for all of us to stand up and speak our truth.  Keeping quiet is the same as agreeing.  It enables the bad behavior and bad attitudes.

And in your personal life too, you do not need to keep quiet about what is bothering you.  You can stand up and speak your truth.

The condition of your life is your responsibility.  You are not a helpless victim.

The condition of our world is our collective responsibility. We are not victims.

We the people are the ones who will transform the world into the Age of Aquarius.

Don’t concentrate on those who seem to not be redeemable and who will not change.

Focus on attracting those who want to bring the Age of Aquarius values to the real world- as you do.

It is a waste of time trying to convince others to believe.

Be confident in what you believe, and be an example for others to follow. Who you are speaks volumes.

Till next week

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We pretty much leave Eclipse Season this coming week.  And Jupiter switches from Direct to Retrograde late Thursday March 8, putting an end to the rare event of All Planets being Direct, which has been happening since the first of this current year.

And later this week, on Friday March 9, we begin the last quarter of a lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15. A new lunar cycle begins at the Pisces New Moon on March 17.

Where are we both collectively and in our personal lives now?

We will now be able to process all the changes, events, emotions, thoughts, etc. that have been swirling in our lives this Eclipse Season.

Then after Mercury goes Retrograde on March 22, we will have even more time and inclination to reflect, ponder, analyze, and go deeper into our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls.

Then after April 15, the dogs are released through the Portal that will be opened then. There will be then a New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus, Mercury going Direct, and a Yod Finger of God encompassing the USA natal Mars.

This will be a time of important of new starts, and important world and personal events that will mostly be understood in the context of the events of the last two Eclipse Seasons.

Much has happened in our personal and collective lives since last July 2017.  Much has happened more specifically since this last January 2018, when Winter Eclipse Season 2018 began.

Remember also that on Winter Solstice 2017, Saturn went into its favorite sign Capricorn  on Winter Solstice day, making a strong conjunction with the Sun in Capricorn. This gave us a Winter ’17/’18 signature.

That signature told us how serious and down turning winter would be, and how gravity (ruled by Saturn and Capricorn) would bring a metaphorically quite strong down-pull or down-fall.

In large part because of that knowledge I predicted a severe downward turn of the then “flying high mania”  Stock Market.

And it was so.

And this is only the beginning of the downturn, which will become a crash, and then an important transformation of the USA and world economies.

The future holds a much more Bernie Sanders kind of economy, and a severely transformed world into Diversity within Unity for an Age of Aquarius.

In the meantime the process will not be pretty.  There is a USA downfall that we are experiencing led by the Trump administration, very likely coming major wars in the world, and a continued internal USA civil and culture war.

This chaos will bring many governments to try to overly control their citizens, while said chaos will also bring much creative energy to stand up to the controls and to what has been a largely corrupt and unfair old world structure. This “standing up” is already in gear.

Movement to overthrow this current USA administration through impeachment will continue to grow.

All this turmoil is a clearing for the Age of Aquarius,  coming on the heels of the chaos.

I promise videos and podcasts soon (before April 15), and some will be with David Sanipass as we did last year.

This week we experience Jupiter going Retrograde on Thursday and the 4th quarter of the current lunar cycle beginning on Friday.  And before all that both Mercury and Venus will enter Aries on Tuesday the 6th of March (my birthday).

Venus and Mercury leave flowing and sensitive Pisces to be in straight forward, direct, and assertive Aries for awhile.

Both Venus and Mercury are relational planets, so relationships can expect to be more sometimes brutally honest with one another.

If you have been walking on eggs with someone, not wanting to upset them or the status quo, you will start feeling more motivated to assert your truth with them.

In world affairs the same thing will be happening, as people will stop mincing words and instead be more open about what they want to assert.  Aries challenges and confronts, often with force.

On Thursday when up-lifting and expansive Jupiter is stationary waiting to change directions, there should be a spike in hopeful and joyful feelings.  But that will in many cases be temporary, as Jupiter will then go Retrograde for the next 4 months.

Also as Jupiter is changing directions, some people will be impulsive, saying what they would not normally say or jumping into something without caution.

The last quarter Moon is in Sagittarius on March 9. That means the Sun is in laid back Pisces, being countered by free spirited adventurous Sagittarius.  You could be conflicted between those two quite different ways of being.

We will be in the last quarter till March 17 at the New Moon in Pisces. As usual the last quarter opens us up to process and reflect on what has been and where we are at.

Sometimes energies or events are so accelerated or intense, that we lose ourselves or our perspective.

In this 4th quarter and beyond, through the soon approaching Mercury Retrograde, all the way to  April 15; we have the ability to gather ourselves, to shake off the dust of recent experiences, and to look our lives and selves right in the eye of truth.

If you judge yourself or others too harshly now, however, you will be unaligned and taken off track.   You are human and we make mistakes, and all we can do is apologize if need be, atone (at-one), learn form the mistakes, and promise our selves to do our best to never repeat the same mistakes.

Many of you who regularly read this blog, consider your self on a soul’s journey.  And right now, our souls are in the beginning stages of a world storm, a storm that seeks to shake up the status quo.  It is not an easy time for many now.

I know many of you are quite concerned and sometimes fearful of what is happening to our country and world..

If you look from a bigger picture at our human story over the past hundreds of years, you will see many challenges and forks in the road.  And though we sure messed up a lot, we also are quite resilient and resourceful and creative.  And we have been incredibly loving and caring so much of the time, even if history books do not tell us that.

We have created such works of beauty and artistry, built awesome civilizations, adventurously travelled so far, even to the Moon.  We are the only Earth creatures to do all this.

Yes we have also been so nasty, murderous, self serving, greedy, and hateful.

But we always do seem to somehow grow and evolve in so many ways.

And we are all now so close to one another through mass communication, social media,  mass transportation, world commerce, and all together under the Sun and Moon, and having the same basic human needs.

So now our growing edge is knowing and honoring our connections, not seeing ourselves as all separate and enemies with one another. It is no longer good enough to only know connections based on negotiations, trades, and contrived circumstances.

It is time to know and honor that we are all connected in our hearts and souls naturally, all parts of the same human family.  It is time to know that the Universe has all the dots connected, not random. It is time to know we live a meaningful existence, on a sacred home planet, in a beautiful diverse Universe, all together as One.

Dark and light, male and female, yin and yang- many differences but all connected as One.

Deeply knowing all this will help us to evolve to our next level, all in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Navigating Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast February 4-10.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are smack dab in the middle of Winter Eclipse Season 2018.  Last week was the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo.  The week after this one, on February 15, is the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.

We are always taken out of the same-old, same-old patterns of thought, emotions, or behavior patterns during Eclipse Seasons, and this one is no different.

As we are taken out of our normal patterns, we are on our toes and ready to meet the challenges and changes.

In the greater world the stock market downfall began last week.   This will continue.  Now it is possible and even likely that there will be gasps of manic energy reviving the stock climb, but it will be short lived as the overall direction is downward now, as we have stated before.

Before the end of the year, the value of stocks will be much less and the true condition of the economy will be more evident.  This is the beginning of the transformation of the Military/Economic Complex that runs the USA and much of the world.

This transformation will accelerate from 2018-2022, as at the same time the Age of Aquarius will be having its buds pushing through the branches of our world.

The Aquarius emphasis of the Eclipse Season will get even stronger as we move through the Aquarius Solar Eclipse New Moon on February 15.

That means that collective community efforts will get more powerful, and the push by Inspector Mueller to investigate the Trump administration will get more powerful too.   Notions of impeachment will become more than just notions.

The distraction of the FBI Memo will not stop the impeachment train from chugging forward.

So there are two collective efforts now, one more pushed by Democrats toward possible impeachment, and one more pushed by Republicans toward discrediting Clinton, Obama and Democrats for being in collusion with the FBI against Trump.

This is an extension of the culture wars that became more evident during the last Eclipse Season with Charlottesville.

And speaking of the connections between last eclipse season and this one, the North Korea issue is still red hot even though North and South Korea are having a peaceful get together at the Winter Olympics.

In my estimation the Trump administration is planning a hit on North Korea this year if North Korea does not promise to begin dismantling their nuclear program. And it is not likely that North Korea will do so.

And keep an eye on the Middle East this Eclipse Season also, as the Trump decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has not felt the full vehemence against that decision yet.

The Me-Too movement, getting further mileage with the convictions against Larry Nasser for sexually abusing so many young girls, is not done yet by a long shot.

Any group missions you have now, or socially conscious groups you plan on joining forces with, will have the winds of the Universe blowing at your back for forward movement.

Sometimes during these Eclipse Seasons events happen that seem to be taking one backward and into negative places.

From a bigger picture this is necessary in the process of transformation, as more purging is needed of old attitudes, beliefs, and ways of being from the past.

One’s demons or ghosts from the past often need to be seen in the light of day in order to integrate those shadow parts of self in a more constructively holistic manner.   Demons locked in closets are ultimately much more dangerous.

But if you keep seeing your life from “glass half-full” viewpoints, you will see the synchronicities, feel the magic, and know the Universe is talking to you.

When you recognize the Universe is speaking to you with its signs, symbols, and guide posts; you will then be more able to act in accordance with the Universe, using your intentions to co-create your life.

This is why it is important to not be controlled by the programmed world paradigm.  That programming tends to keep us locked in fear, not truly able to recognize the Universe/the Gods/God/Goddess/spirit/soul/spirit guides/angels (or whatever your belief system calls it) talking to you to help you on your path.

You are never alone, though sometimes it feels one has been abandoned by the God-force.   That is when we have dark nights of the soul that make us feel so alone without meaning.

We live in a meaningful Universe, helping us to evolve and contribute to the world and human family on our sacred Earth.

If  you see through the eyes of the old paradigm, you see everything that happens as random, run by good or bad luck.  And you will hear in the background of your mind  mental tapes of “Us versus Them”, good guys versus bad guys, male against female,  dark versus light, Judeo/Christian versus Muslim, hetero versus homo,  etc.

Yes we have opposites but they are connected at a deep level and though they may butt heads sometimes, they are together as One.

Nothing can truly unglue the circle of wholeness, except us in our own minds and hearts.  The Moon stays round, the Sun shines, Earth keeps alive no matter what we think or do.

But we can self destruct and eliminate ourselves. And that happens if we hate ourselves or others.

We are complicated as humans, not good or bad, just what we are.  We can make the best of what we are and what we have been given; or we can judge and separate our selves as good or evil. That battle will destroy us as we will hate a part of ourselves that we judge as bad or good.

And do you not think it is revealing that every side thinks it is the good ones and those they oppose are the bad or evil ones. North Korea and Iran demonize us and we demonize them. Is one right and the other wrong? Or are both victims of an old paradigm that separates by demonization, and then seeks to destroy the “bad guys”.

Once Germany and Japan were the evil ones and now they are good because they are on our side now.

Lets wake up now and know we are all one, with many different faces: Equal in the eyes of the Universe- creating Diversity Within Unity. Age of Aquarius.

Till next week and the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius
