By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move into the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Gemini on June 3.

The 4th quarter begins on Tuesday the 25th with the Moon in Aries square the Sun in Cancer.

So even though we enter the usually winding down quarter of the lunar cycle, the Aries Moon is wanting us to take some kind of action or at least to begin to empower ourselves in some way.

The 4th quarter of a lunar cycle is also about releasing, gathering, and preparing for the turn into the new beginnings of a new lunar cycle at the new moon.

And since the New Moon will be one on steroids, because it is a New Moon Solar Eclipse, the getting ready time has more intensity and importance than the usual  4th quarter of the lunar cycle.

Before the 4th quarter begins, however, Venus makes some significant moves.

On the 23rd Venus opposes Jupiter, a day before it squares Neptune. So there is some processing around relationship issues that needs to be addressed before the 4th quarter gathering, cleaning, and releasing.

This relationship processing is partly about getting a bigger picture view of relationship and how it fits into your life now.  What are your priorities now?  How much emphasis does your relationship and/or family have for you in contrast to your sense of life purpose?

Life will intensify appreciably beginning next week, as we then experience a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on Tuesday July 2. And 5 days later Mercury goes Retrograde on July 7. It will stay Retrograde until July 31.

And the second eclipse will be experienced while Mercury is still Retrograde, as it is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn on July 16.

That Lunar Eclipse on July 16 will at 24+ degrees of Cancer/Capricorn. That means both Saturn (17 degrees Capricorn) and Pluto (22 degrees Capricorn) will be in the signature of the Lunar Eclipse.

That adds intensity and meaning to the eclipse, but also makes everything feel more real, substantive, and transformational.  Our ideas and desires to transform our world, which has been stirring for many years for many of us, now gets more real than ever.

It is time to get our hands dirty and contribute to this world in transitional crisis. Coming events will demand us to do this.

This Summer Eclipse Season, though powerful in itself, is just an appetizer for the main meal in January 2020 when Saturn and Pluto are exactly conjunct during another set of powerful eclipses.

The Cancer/Capricorn sign emphasis for both Eclipse Seasons, show us the need to balance the Father archetype (Capricorn) with the Mother archetype (Cancer).

Capricorn respects what you do, while Cancer respects who you are. Capricorn is more outer directed and Cancer more inner directed.

So we are getting ourselves ready to find a new balance between these differing societal values.

And in our culture here in the USA, there is a culture war going on between Cancerian Liberal values and Capricorn Conservative values.  These two different sides have little connection between them nowadays.

Of course in a healthy world they join in union like a yin/yang symbol. But now they are  largely at war in our society.

In general Women are getting more empowered and speaking their minds, and Men are learning to be more sensitive, empathic, and understanding.

As we as a culture are just learning to do these things, we are in many cases getting further apart from one another.

But we will join again in a more healthy and connected union (yin/yang symbol).

The real work is internal, where each of us needs to find both a healthy male and healthy female inside ourselves.

Carl Jung said that men had an inner woman (anima) and women had an inner man (animus).  The condition of a man’s anima can be seen in the women he attracts to himself; and the state of a woman’s animus is reflected by the men she attracts to herself. And of course this changes through the years, as one develops a more healthy and integrated gender balance.

And of course now in our world, the whole idea of gender identification is changing, making the process more complicated.

But the point is that the inner work is so important now around gender balancing.

Women seem be ahead of men in gender balancing as society puts out a greater stigma against men integrating their “feminine” side.

Men must pick up the slack now, and get over rigid ideas of what it is to be a man.

So with this Cancer/Capricorn emphasis now, we will be challenged to integrate male and female in new ways.

The war between men and women now, or between conservative and liberal, is ridiculous and self destructive to our human family. Time for us all to grow up.

And events in the world will challenge us to grow and evolve, as these events get more and more challenging

There was almost a war ignited between the USA and Iran this last week over a large tin can of a USA drone being struck down as it supposedly entered Iranian space.

Trump did stop the attack dogs from attacking, but that conflict is far from over.

Remember Trump is a Sun in Gemini, and as such the twins have very different ways of being.

Geminis often have a “good person” voice whispering in one ear, as a “bad person” voice whispers in the other ear.

So Trump gives word to attack and then changes his Gemini mind.

Next week when the eclipses begin, we shall see what happens then.

Next week we will look at the Solar Eclipse New Moon and how it may affect the candidates and their natal charts. Next week are the first debates for presidential candidates. We will also begin to analyze the charts and chances to be president for the main candidates in the race next week.

Till next week,

Leo

Eclipse Season Begins and Astrology Forecast June 16-22.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 15, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

A bugle sounds for us to wake up from hiding this week.  As the bugle sounds, the first strong winds of Summer Eclipse Season 2019 begin to blow in.

The first of 2 eclipses, however, does not arrive until July 2; nevertheless, the Full Moon in Sagittarius this week on Monday the 17th opens up the Eclipse Season. And Summer Solstice is also this week on Friday the 21st.

Summer Solstice on the 21st is at 11:54 AM EDT. This day is the day when light is at its greatest and dark is at its least.  But dark minutes start growing right after the Summer Solstice and light begins to retreat.

Summer Solstice is also the beginning of having the Sun in Cancer for the next 30 days. The Sun in Cancer, the sign of Mother nature, shows us a time when Nature is in full bloom at its most abundant.  Cancer is a sign of nurturance, like a Mother feeding a baby.

Cancer likes to be taken care of or to take care of others, and at its best loves unconditionally.  At its worst it lacks boundaries and can hover over those it loves, giving them little room to breathe- hence the word s-mother.

This is a good month to be with family, whatever family truly means to you.  Being supportive and being supported is in line with Cancer too.

The next 9 months or so will thrust us forward into new dimensions of Love and Truth, even as darker realities burst some bubbles of our illusions.

This Summer Eclipse Season 2019 will last into August, and it will bring with it the beginning of presidential debates in preparation  for Election Day in November 2020.

Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 will be a climactic time period, which will include the powerful and important Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12, 2020.  That conjunction will be right after and conjunct the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon In Cancer on January 10, 2020. (See webinar information below).

Right now, this week we awaken our spirits and souls with the Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius, which is only one day after an important Jupiter/Neptune square.  That square has Jupiter in Sagittarius (its favorite place to be) squaring Neptune in Pisces (its favorite place to be) on Sunday June 16.

And both Jupiter and Neptune are part of the signature of the Sagittarius Full Moon the next day on June 17.  Jupiter is widely conjunct the Moon, while Neptune in Pisces is square that Moon.

This is a lot of energy opening up. It may feel chaotic at times for some. Others may experience an opening into spiritual dimensions, with increased signs and synchronicities from the Universe.

The Gemini/Sagittarius Full Moon is usually one that opens up the mind and stimulates a need to find resolution, meaning and understanding, even in the face of much information to sort out.

Lively conversation is usually opened up during this Sag Full Moon.  Jumping to conclusions is common during this lunation.  Enhanced intuition and rapid fire thinking are common at this full moon.

With Jupiter and Neptune also involved, some will get confused and/or out of usual mental balance.

If you can surrender your need to keep an agenda or fixed paradigm, you may open to new perceptions and judgments that will assist your growth.

And surrender is a good strategy for this week, a surrender to something greater and to a bigger picture of what is happening.

You may also this week get a good sense of what this Summer Eclipse Season is all about for you and for our world.  What issues are needing to be focused on?  What needs to be changed or transformed?  What needs to be released? What do you need to let in?

Eclipse Seasons always shake us out of status quo reality and thinking. They take us off our usual balance so we can be more vulnerable to growing and evolving. They bring a greater energetic intensity too.

Besides the Solar Eclipse on July 2, there is a Lunar Eclipse on July 16; and mixed in with it all is Mercury being Retrograde from July 2 through July 31.

Back to this week: We have Jupiter square Neptune on Sunday June 16 (though it will be felt most of the week); Mercury making aspects to Neptune, Jupiter, and Saturn- also on the 16th.

Neptune is slowing down now to go Retrograde on Friday the 21st- the same day as the Summer Solstice. When a planet slows down to change directions its energy is much stronger. Confusion, chaos, as well as deeper insight and psychic abilities are enhanced with a strong Neptune. The Inner Kingdom beckons.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius is on the 17th, merging with the aforementioned Neptune aspect of the 16th. It may be too easy for some to be overwhelmed with information and details now.

It may also be challenging for some to find truth within all the clashing information and energy shifts.

That search for truth is our reality most of the time now. Everyone (most especially news media) is pushing an agenda and few seem to be interested in what is real or true if it does not fit into the agenda.

On Wednesday the 19th the conjunction of Mercury and Mars opposes Pluto.  That is a very intense combination and very powerful.  There is more likelihood to be involved in a war of words this week in our personal life conversations. Anger is too easy to feel and express now- be careful.

Even more dangerously, a war of words out in the world is getting more likely now.  Even before this week, the USA and Iran have been thrust into near war.

The USA leadership is obviously setting us up for war with Iran, as it did similarly with Iraq and Libya. Remember Iraq being said to possess weapons of mass destruction?

Can “we the people” be that stupid again?  The USA and Western World made an agreement with Iran under the Obama administration, and Iran is said to have complied.

Trump unilaterally “tore up” the agreement and now through increasing sanctions is pushing Iran into extreme economic  difficulty.

We have made greater enemy of Russia and China also, with economic sanctions and tariffs on each of them.

Remember however, that all this Old World separation and enemy making is not our future. We are needing a deep purge of this old fecal matter from our collective unconscious.

The dark in our world is growing inside its walls of separation, while at the same time light is pushing through the cracks of those walls, wanting to inspire us to leave the darkened walls and to create a new world out in the fields of Nature.

That Nature so needs our loving embrace now, and we need its embrace too.  The technological world we are building must stop its movement away from having healthy bodies and a healthy Earth to live on.

Technology has a very important role in the Age of Aquarius, but without a healthy Earth and healthy human bodies and souls to cradle it, all will vanish.

These next 9 months are crucial for what will happen on Election Day and after.

Let’s get a good start on it all this week as Summer Eclipse Season 2019 commences, as Summer Solstice occurs too.

The “reality” of the mainstream culture is distorted and toxified now.   It is an old paradigm that we have been programmed into.

George Orwell was divinely inspired to write the book 1984.  Look around at our world now. So many have forgotten how to truly think for themselves, on both sides of thinking.  There is a conservative agenda’s mantra to follow and uniform to wear. And there is a liberal political correctness to follow and uniform to wear.

The New Age thrusts us outside the boxes, so we can think and feel for ourselves

Remember the movie Truman’s World with Jim Carrey?  He was programmed from birth to believe real life was what he was experiencing every day. But his “real life” was just a set for the TV program he was constantly the star of, 24 hours a day- every day.  His view of nature was in reality a made up television set.  On the edges of the set, however unbeknownst to him, curtains could be opened to view and enter true Nature and the Real World.

There is no Age of Aquarius until enough people have left the programmed set and seen the beauty and wonder beyond the walls.

Info on this week’s webinar below.  Regular Podcasts/Radio Show to soon follow.

Till next week

Getting Ready and Astrology Forecast May 26-June 1

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on May 25, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It must be pretty obvious now to most everyone that we are on the cusp of enormous change and transformation in the United States and in the greater world.

Countries are becoming more nationalistic and self serving;  religions are at war with one another; liberal and conservative cultures seem to have little middle ground of connection between them.

These countries that are becoming more nationalistic are beefing up their militaries and rapidly finding enemies and allies. They are sending out messages of aggression to one another. This is how major wars have always begun. The Middle East is a tinder box susceptible to being ignited. Iran is heating up as it is in the cross hairs of the USA and Israel.

The economy is gearing up for major declines in the stock market, and there are trade wars that keep heating up, especially between China and the USA.

The Old World has a paradigm of “every man  for himself”, “dog-eat-dog”, “survival of the fittest”  separatism.   This belief system all too often sees making relationship, love, empathy and compassion as weaknesses or naivete.

It sees compromise as losing one’s toughness; giving in as “blinking first” and losing.

And right now those old world beliefs are strong in the minds and hearts of so-called leaders in the world.

It is easy to be made to feel like a “snow-flake”, illogical dreamer, or an innocent child for believing in the connections, believing we live in a sacred and meaningful world, believing we humans are all members of the same family, or believing we are in transition between ages.

But anyone who is evolving and has seen the light knows that those who built and believe in those old age ways of separation are the ones who don’t get it. They are pushing us all to mutual destruction.

But we also know that the Old World is taking its last gasps of dominance on this planet, soon delivering the members of that old world into an historical container that is already inhabited by dinosaurs and the like.

Our survival is now dependent on humans evolving into a consciousness that knows we all need to come together as ONE in order to survive.  We each need to find our distinct authentic individuality and from there find unity: Diversity within Unity.

We have no more time to take for granted the Earth Mother who has brought us into the world.

We can no longer see the Sky Father as merely a scientific material combination of unrelated stars and planets and galaxies in a “governed by chance” Universe.

We are ready for the coming challenges, ready to co-create as our worlds open up; moving  out of our status-quo cages that have been built by the programming of an old paradigm and age.

Mid June will bring us the first winds of Summer Eclipse Season 2019.  Saturn/Pluto will be getting closer in their conjunction with one another.

Mid December will bring us the first winds of Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020.

That second season will bring us the exact conjunction of Saturn/Pluto along with two powerful eclipses.  There will then be a most rapid acceleration of transition between ages.  (I am now scheduling a webinar for Saturday June 22 from noon-4:30 PM EDT.  We will look at Saturn/Pluto, its history and effect on our human condition then and now. And I will give interpretation for each webinar participant concerning the effect of Saturn/Pluto in their own charts and lives. In this webinar we also take a peek at the next presidential election in November 2020, and an outlook on the economy and the condition of our lives going forward: fee $120 with 1 scholarship offered for those most in need. Write me at soulus@aol.com for more info and to sign up.)

This week we move into the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Taurus on May 4.

This last quarter Moon begins in Pisces on Sunday May 26 this week.  That Pisces Moon seeks inner reflection and connection with one’s sensitivity and need to “go with the flow.  The fast mind and nervous system of Sun in Gemini will challenge that flow.

This last quarter lunar cycle this week shows us a Moon getting slimmer and slimmer, bringing us into the dark inner star-studded sky of surrender.

It is time to let go this week of attachments, and get ready for new beginnings next week at the Gemini New Moon on Monday June 3.

Mercury and Venus this week both connect with Neptune and Jupiter, helping our relating skills if we are high-minded and looking for meaning and magic.

The Trump voyage to impeachment gets more real each week, as at the same time the USA connections with the world around it get more and more separating and distant. But it has some new “friends” now.

One of the USA’s best national “friends” now is Saudi Arabia.  Saudi Arabia treats women like dirt. Women only recently are being considered for the right to drive a car..

A female women’s rights activist there was jailed a year ago and flogged, electrocuted,  rape threatened, and water-boarded. Her  crime was being an activist for women being able to drive and to overhaul the Male Guardianship over women in Saudi Arabia.

Why is there no outcry for human rights and women’s rights in Saudi Arabia?

There is such a need for revolution and evolution now in alignment with Age of Aquarius values.

As the old world shows its ugly head now more and more, the cracks in its foundation create more space for the light of a New Age to shine through.

Concentrate on that light in your meditations, feel it penetrating your body, mind and soul.  It is as bright as the old world dramas are dark.

Release that darkness and decay from inside your old world programming, and open more and more to the light of the Age of Aquarius.

Love and Truth are its foundation and nothing can be stronger than that.

See you next week,

Leo

Also I will begin a Podcast/Radio show series on Monday June 3 at the Gemini New Moon. Summer Eclipse Season 2019 begins at that new moon, though the first eclipse will still be a month away.

Lighter and Darker and Astrology Forecast May 19-25.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 18, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As the Full Moon in Scorpio leaves our awareness after the weekend of May 18-19, we get ready to come down another notch into what is real in our lives.

The last half of the current lunar cycle begins this week as we view a Moon getting darker by the minute.  At the same time as the lunar cycle darkens, the solar cycle gives us in the Northern Hemisphere of Earth more light by the minute.

The Moon darkens until June 3, as the New Moon in Gemini that day begins the process of the Moon growing once again with more light every night.

At the same time, the Sun brings more light every day until the Summer Solstice on June 21, when the Sun stops at its highest place in the sky to shine the most light of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

Symbolically, the Sun represents the conscious intent for humans to shine, create, fully express, and succeed with utmost confidence.

Symbolically the Moon represents an inner, more instinctual intent to give and receive comfort and nurturance, to protect and express inner values of care and empathy.

So this week our inner and outer worlds are moving in vastly different directions.  Our collective conscious desire is to move with “glass half full” intent to get better and better in our relationship with the world.

Our collective soul/feeling desire is to feel what is natural for us to feel, even if that means sadness, grief,  or even feeling sorry for ourselves at times.

In the “world out there” there are many challenges.  The USA is digging in against its so-called enemies: Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, China, and Russia.   The USA has enacted or is a part of sanctions on all those countries. The USA Natal Mars in Gemini is triggered in May and June by Jupiter being directly opposite in Sagittarius.

No matter what is stated as motivation against these countries, the real reason for much of the conflicts is needs for more power and control, domination, and in some cases control over natural resources like oil and natural gas.

When Trump chose Bolton and Pompeo as integral leaders in his administration, most people knew that meant war was likely to come, as both those men are known to be military hawks hankering for a fight.

We are at a big turning point in our country and world now.  The next 9 months of so will  greatly determine the path we take over the next several years in regards to economy and war.

Especially important will be the next two Eclipse Seasons- in the Summer of 2019 and the Winter of 2019/20.

The Saturn/Pluto powerful configuration is getting closer and closer now, with their only exact conjunction being in January of 2020, which is the climax of their planetary relationship at this time.  Of course Eclipses will also be happening in January 2020, as well as July 2019.

This all will have great effect on our personal lives too. I am now scheduling a webinar for Saturday June 22 from noon-4:30 PM EDT.  We will look at Saturn/Pluto, its history and effect on our human condition then and now. And I will give interpretation for each webinar participant concerning the effect of Saturn/Pluto in their own charts and lives. In this webinar we also take a peek at the next presidential election in November 2020, and an outlook on the economy and the condition of our lives going forward: fee $120 with 1 scholarship offered for those most in need. Write me at soulus@aol.com for more info and to sign up.

Also I will begin a Podcast/Radio show series on Monday June 3 at the Gemini New Moon. Summer Eclipse Season 2019 begins at that new moon, though the first eclipse will still be a month away. 

Yes we now enter a most important time here on Earth, as the condition of consciousness for each of us is most important for the direction, condition, and quality of our entrance into The Age of Aquarius.

Yes this week we have moved into the “downhill” movement of the waning half of the lunar cycle begun on May 4 at the Taurus New Moon.

That next lunar cycle begins at the New Moon in Gemini on June 3. That is when Sun and Moon are conjunct at 12+ degrees of Gemini.

This week the Sun goes into Gemini on Tuesday May 21.  As we stated, the Moon will join the Sun in Gemini creating a New Moon in Gemini on June 3.

This week when the Sun leaves Taurus and enters Gemini, our intentions begin to be more mental and social and less physical and solitary.

Gemini stirs the mind and nervous system into more activity.  Needs to communicate get stronger, which for many means more talking.   But writing can also be a means to communicate now. People tend to both take classes and create classes during Gemini time.

Gemini rhythm is “information in- information out”- just the facts- no opinions, judgments or editorializing.   That is when Gemini is purely Gemini.

Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury, the “messenger of the gods”, and it works often by showing signs and symbols and synchronicites that the Universe sends so people can see what direction to move toward and get clearer information.

The mind can go really fast in Gemini and Gemini seeks much mental stimulation and varied interests.  With not enough mental stimulation it can be bored; with too much it can be overwhelmed.

Gemini is the Twins, and as such it has two distinctly different personalities. Sometimes that may feel like the good angel and bad angel, or like Jekyll and Hyde.  But usually it is not that drastically polarized.  But two distinctly different selves do exist in some form for them.

Mars sextiles Uranus in Taurus on May 22, and that may cause some mostly minor shake-up of same-old, same-old.

In personal lives, I know most of you have been experiencing much change, and/or you can feel much change under the surface and coming soon.

The Old World has one more huge gasp in trying to bring back the past and its old Paradigm (Make America Ghastly Again).

The great hope is that it does not cause too much harm and pain during that time.

Our challenge is to not be sucked up into the black hole vortex it creates.  If we do not allow ourselves to be devoured by too much fear or hatred, we will be fine.

Keep focused on how we are entering the Age of Aquarius.  Keep meditating and getting yourself healthier and healthier. Keep remembering that Love and Truth run our Universe, and be that Love and Truth as best you can.

Till next week,

Leo

Before the Storms and Astrology Forecast April 28- May 4

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on April 27, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move through the last quarter of the current lunar cycle, one that began at the Aries New Moon on April 5.

Aries New Moons signify new beginnings and start-ups. It is the time of early Spring in the Northern Hemisphere on Earth.

When the Sun moves into Aries, that signifies the first moment of Spring season at Spring Equinox, which lets us know buds are soon ready to push through branches of the trees, and flowers are getting ready to burst into bloom.

Yet we do not really enter new beginnings until the Moon catches up with the Sun to form a New Moon.

That last New Moon in Aries on April 5 started a new lunar cycle signifying new beginnings (as usual at a New Moon in Aries), but this time Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn formed a hard square to that New Moon in Aries.  That strongly suggested difficulties or blocks in the way of those new beginnings.

A day before the Libra Full Moon”climax” of that lunar cycle of April 19, the Mueller report came out and was given exclusively to the USA Attorney General who works for the President.

He held onto that report for awhile, and then he crossed out (redacted) a significant portion of that report. So the citizens of the country, who are supposed to be the stewards of that country, are not informed of much that is in the report.  In other words the full contents of that report did not go public.

Now as we move through the last quarter segment of the lunar cycle this week, we await full disclosure of the contents of that Mueller Report.

The New Moon is on Saturday May 4 at 6:45 PM EDT. It is a Taurus New Moon.

The sign Taurus in a fixed earth sign. It signifies true solidity and manifestation.

Aries “gets the ball rolling”, and directs the initial fires from the New Moon in Aries. Aries is a cardinal fire sign.

So after the Aries New Moon start up, the Taurus lunar cycle that follows grabs hold of what was begun by Aries, and then forms and shapes it.  Taurus then is motivated to hold on and make things as permanent as possible at the time.

So now whatever was started in the fires of April, is wanting to be made manifest, real, and as practical as possible.

Last week “god of the underworld” Pluto changed directions from Direct to Retrograde; and in the process made its intensity and passion quite evident.

This week, on Monday April 29, Saturn also changes from Direct to Retrograde.

The energy to be felt from Saturn contracts what it touches and is very grounding as it is the ruling planet of gravity.

And that is how it manifests sometimes, as we may feel more serious and grave as it turns.

A grave in fact is one form of Saturn, as it represents parts of life that cannot be escaped. In that context, it represents boundaries, endings, deaths, but also commitments, building and organizing, discipline, goals and accomplishments.

It is a stern teacher sometimes, a taskmaster.  It also is the hand of time, and as such represents fate, something meant to be.

As Saturn slows down to go retrograde, Pluto is still moving very slowly after it just went retrograde last week.

So both Pluto and Saturn are “in the air”, which can make things feel dark and dire.

Don’t know about you, but often lately I feel like life is being put on hold now until some big event is made manifest.

Saturn and Pluto show us powerful endings, endings that promise deep transformation and a Phoenix Rising from the ashes of the death of the old season of our lives.  (I am still planning a new class on Saturn/Pluto in late spring or early summer. For more info contact me at soulus@aol.com.  My recent video and podcast (see below) include talking about that Saturn/Pluto conjunction, which will be exact on January 11 2020).

On January 10, the day before that powerful conjunction, is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn/Cancer, making extremely close contact with that Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn the next day.  This represents a monumental turning point in our lives.

The bombing of so many churches, hotels, etc and killings of so many people in Sri Lanka, show us the horrible religious and culture wars playing out in our world.

In large part, the transition between Ages we find ourselves in,  is meant to take us away from a world and paradigm that are about “every man for himself”, in a survival of the fittest world.

Survival now is dependent on our collective consciousness evolving into a knowing of our connections, a knowing we are interdependent with one another, members of the same human family on Planet Earth.

The horrible weapons of mass destruction are an integral outgrowth of the old paradigm of dog eat dog survival of the fittest.

Those who are the fittest now have been awakened to know the connections, to know that all the dots of the stars and planets in the Universe are connected.

We can then see the meaning of our lives in this world, and we can more consciously dance with the music of the spheres of this Universe.

The old paradigm has us all separate from one another, or else all wearing the same “uniform” in order to make unity.

We do not need to make unity. It is already made. All we need to do is align with it, be involved with it, immerse ourselves in it.

Separation transforms into a more positive distinct sense of individuality for each person in the Age of Aquarius consciousness.

And the “unity” of being in the same uniform transforms into individualism finding its place, function and purpose in the greater community: Diversity within Unity.

“Fated” events are on the way, and they will help us break out of the blocks, and liberate us from the chains of programmed conformity, and free us to find our way in this new world and Age.

So this week,  hand of time Saturn slows down, stops, and then rewinds for the few months of its retrograde motion. Powerful world and personal events during the retrograde period will remind us of previous world and personal events from the past.

Then on September 18 this year, the hand of time starts up again as Saturn goes back Direct.

This week, as Saturn goes Retrograde on Monday the 29th of April, you may get to thinking about what you want to accomplish and how you want to go about planning and organizing to make that successful. Or you may feel the hand of fate, or feel serious about something you need to do, or an obligation you need to meet.

Best case scenario is feeling grounded and motivated to manifest and accomplish. Remember we now have the Sun in fixed earth Taurus, and are also more connected to the gravity of Saturn. And we are also in the last quarter of a darkening Moon.

Find ways to lighten up and not feel so heavy or depressed now. But we nevertheless do need to do some last quarter releasing and getting ready for the New Moon in Taurus Saturday May 4.

Mars in Gemini is exactly opposite Jupiter in Sagittarius next week on Sunday May 5.

That will put some spark in the New Moon in Taurus. The USA natal Mars and Trump’s natal Sun and Moon are being triggered by the Mars/Jupiter opposition.  Let’s see what that means for us all.

Till next week,

Leo

Saturn/Pluto and Astrology Forecast April 21-17

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on April 20, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in the waning half of the lunar cycle this week,  as we move past the Full Moon in Libra last week.  This lunar cycle began on April 5 at the Aries New Moon.  Effectively, that was the beginning of Spring Season 2019. New lunar cycle begins on May 4 at the Taurus New Moon.

That April 5 New Moon in Aries was a time of important new beginnings, but at the same time Saturn and Pluto squared that New Moon in Aries and represented major blocks in the way of true new beginnings.

Saturn/Pluto will take on greater and greater importance in our personal lives and collective world lives until January 2020 when the extremely powerful conjunction of Saturn and Pluto is exact.

And one day before that conjunction there will be a major Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer that makes close opposition to that Saturn/Pluto conjunction. And Uranus, on the day of that eclipse, stops and then moves Direct.

We will be talking a lot about this event as we get closer and closer to it.  I am seriously thinking of doing a class on this subject this year sometime. Please let me know if you might be interested by writing to me at soulus@aol.com.

In the class I will speak about how that will affect our world and our personal lives and the next presidential election. I will look at the USA and other countries charts as well as each individual class participant’s chart. I probably will be ready then to make a prediction on our next president.

Saturn and Pluto have an approximate 35 year cycle.

The last time they were in exact conjunction was in 1982.  (Ronald Reagan started his presidency the year before and soon thereafter, there was a failed assassination attempt on Reagan.  That failed attempt broke an ominous planetary pattern’s effect on the death of USA presidents during Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions. More on that another time).

Saturn conjunct Pluto in 1982 was only a few months after Israel invaded Lebanon.   In part this attempt seemed like an effort to destroy the lives of Palestinians then living in Lebanon.  The USA invaded Lebanon a few months after the conjunction.  200 USA Marines died and the USA then left Lebanon.   This was an important spark that ignited future major conflict with “terrorists”.

Saturn and Pluto were in exact opposition to one another in August 2001. Very soon thereafter the USA experienced the devastation of an attack on the Twin Towers in New York- 9-11. That opposition was right on the USA Ascendent/Descendant line of 11+ degrees of Sagittarius and Gemini.

The Saturn/Pluto opposition that preceded their conjunction in 1982 was in 1965/66 when the first USA troops were sent to Vietnam, effectively starting the Viet Nam war; and when Martin Luther King led the March from Selma Alabama, effectively starting the Civil Rights movement

In the previous conjunction in 1947, India and Pakistan declared independence from Britain; and the Roswell incident brought to collective human awareness the presence of extra-terrestrials on the Earth. 

So at this current Saturn/Pluto conjunction we can expect a turning point in the conflict between nuclear powers India and Pakistan (which has meaningfully been triggered this year).

We can also expect USA and Israel getting more involved with the Palestinian issue, as Trump unveils his “peace plan” in Spring/Summer 2019.  More Middle East dominance and by USA and Israel is quite likely also, as they get into more serious conflict with Iran.

We can also expect a need to go to another level in our Civil Rights movements, as we deal with white supremacists now.

And I truly believe we will also experience some grand appearance or disclosure around Extra-Terrestrials and UFO’s.

Remember also that the USA will be experiencing over the next few years its first Pluto return; while Saturn and Jupiter make conjunction with the USA natal Pluto.

And that USA natal Pluto is the symbol of USA Empire and Industrial/Military Complex.

Donald Trump’s natal Venus/Saturn conjunction in Cancer is beginning to be triggered by the transiting Saturn/Pluto conjunction, as that formation has gotten much closer to it.

His sense of security and well being and of having loyal friends will all be more and more threatened in the months ahead.

Enormous transformation over the next few years for us all as we move more surely into the Age of Aquarius.

This week, as we move through the waning half of the lunar cycle, we also experience the Sun conjunct Uranus; Pluto changing direction to Retrograde; and Saturn slowing way down as it also changes directions into Retrograde early next week on April 29.

This Monday April 22 shows us the Sun conjunct Uranus on Earth Day.   There will be an increased chance of a large earthquake this week; but also rebellious feelings of not accepting conventional rules of society will get stronger this week.

On Wednesday the 24th intense, passionate, sometimes primal Pluto (the guardian of the Underworld) changes direction to Retrograde. As it slows down in its shift, its energy is stronger than usual.

With Saturn also beginning to slow down now, it is a good time to acknowledge the Transformation we are experiencing. What in your life do you need to let go of from the “old you” and “old chapter” of your life? What are you ready to embrace of the “new you” and “new chapter” of your life?

Pluto/Saturn can be a very destructive force of that which is holding onto life beyond what is natural.  But it is also a very constructive force for building for a New Chapter of your life.

This summer’s Eclipses will also bring much more change and transformation, in anticipation of the greatest change and transformation in the winter of early 2020.

Take a good look at our world, and know how much we need transformation. Look at our current administration.  Look at the deteriorating values and corruption.  And it is not just about Trump and republicans.   Our government has been selling out to corporations and special interests for a really long time now- both parties.

We are ready and in need of big change.  The Age of Aquarius awaits us.  Love and Truth have open arms for those who want them and believe in them.

Till next week,

Leo

Truth and Love and Astrology Forecast April 14-20.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on April 13, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Energy Shift this coming week as there is a Full Moon in Libra on Friday the 19th. It makes two Full Moons in Libra, back to back. The last one was on Spring Equinox on March 20.

On the next day after the Full Moon in Libra this coming Friday, the Sun goes into Taurus on Saturday.

So both Libra and Taurus are said to be “ruled” by Goddess Venus, also known as Aphrodite.  Venus is the female counterpart to the male Mars.  And Mars (ruler of Aries) has been around perhaps too much lately.

Venus is heart and relationship oriented,  seeking peace and harmony. She is socially conscious, and tends to care (sometimes too much) about what others think of her.

She wants to be beautiful herself, but also is drawn to beauty as an artistic person. She can be very idealistic, and always looks for what is fair and balanced. One of her two ruled signs, Libra, is about the scales of Justice.

And Taurus, her other sign, also is about beauty and receptivity, but also about being sensuous and attuned to the physical, including Nature. She also is drawn to physical resources like land and money.

So you can be more in touch with your body now, especially so the pleasures of your body.

One of the weaknesses of Venus is also its strength.  She is so relationship oriented, and understands so much about relating; but as such she often loses herself as she so accommodates others before herself.

The Full Moon in Libra is on Friday the 19th at 7:12 AM EDT.  This Full Moon consists of the Sun in Aries exactly opposite the Moon in Libra. Being true to Self and its need for independence and personal empowerment (Aries) seeks to be balanced now by needs to relate, to be with others, to socialize, to love (Libra).

Aries likes challenge, competition and sometimes conflict. Libra likes being with others, being peaceful, and balanced.

Netanyahu just won another election to stay Prime Minister of Israel.  He was born with the Sun and Moon in Libra at a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Libra.

And his buddy Trump was born at a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Gemini/Sagittarius.

These two make bullies look good in comparison to them. And each of them has tendencies to want to be dictator and emperor.

Nationalism is a growing movement in the world now, and anti immigrant is part of that movement. It is a desire of these nationalists to go back to some kind of purity in how it used to be in their country.

In many of their minds, there is a sense that these aliens are inferior to them. They often want to go back to when all the citizens were of the same nationality, race, and religion as one another.

Just prior to World War II, the same sentiment was growing.  Italy, Spain, and Germany were all getting more and more nationalistic. That nationalism became fascism.

Don’t get me wrong. There are needs to have strong borders and to have rules for becoming citizens.  But some of this does smell of  fascism.

The power of globalism is growing at the same time.  This will all reach a climax in 2019-2021 with so many powerful eclipses and planetary configurations during that time period.

Globalism unites, nationalism separates.   In a healthy world this potentially translates into Diversity Within Unity,  a large part of the Age of Aquarius paradigm.

We do need distinct individualism to come together into Unity.

But right now nationalism often equates with fear and hatred of those differences. Potentially there may come a domination and control of the masses to keep order.

And globalism often equates with no boundaries and increasing chaos.

Look at the border now between Mexico and the United States.  People are desperately wanting to come into the USA and could be bringing much desperation and chaos with them.

And the Authorities may go over the top with forceful and violent control methods.

Hitler took advantage of the fears of his people, sold them on German purity, and violently dominated and murdered millions who were different. He found a strong ally in Italy’s Mussolini.

Netanyahu uses similar methods of fear mongering about Palestinian terror, and Israel is in the process of taking over more and more lands of the Palestinians. Netanyahu is building an Apartheid world as it was in South Africa.  It will get much worse as Trump has become such a strong ally of his.

We need to stay awake, and make sure we do not get complacent and too attached to our creature comfort needs.

The next few Eclipse Seasons leading up to the next election in November 2020 and the Aquarian Age conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius in December 2020, will be powerful and life changing. Please watch new video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-erQxW7fG8&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR1nW2WVmFWvfi8w_ZG1ysfFmP9C1bPO_fJy5k4G8XgSTnykt6QM4s2NVt4.  listen to podcast:   https://directory.libsyn.com/episode/index/id/9293840

The world is not ending. The result of all these shake-ups is evolution of consciousness, letting in more truth and love,  spiritual growth, a stronger knowing that all the dots of the world and Universe are connected, and an Age of Aquarius.

But at the same time as all this happens, we each need to be in our personal power, looking for the truth, which is not always pretty.

Love without truth is not real.   Truth without Love is cold and cynical.

Together they can do anything, can move mountains, and make magic.  They are the holiest of relationships.

The two planets most resonant with relating and communicating move out of Pisces and into Aries this week. Mercury, master communicator, goes into Aries on Wednesday the 17th. Venus, master of relating, goes into Aries next Saturday the 20th.

Aries is straight-forward and direct, going right for the jugular of Truth. Mars rules Aries.

And with Venus so strong too this week, with a Libra Full Moon and the Sun going into Taurus; we are being given the opportunity this week to do a better job of bringing Truth and Love together.

Till next week

Leo
