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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

See you next week,

Leo

So Shall it Be and Astrology Forecast March 22-28

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 21, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have passed through the first part of Spring Eclipse Season 2015, as an important portal into the new world has been opening.

But I know for many of us it felt more like the old world was alive and well,  with fear and nasty behavior stronger than ever.

Five different people this past week asked me something similar.  The words may not have been exactly the same, but in essence they questioned the same thing.  They did not understand how people could be so mean or selfish or cold or rude, etc.

There was a lot of negative energy released this past week with the aspects of Uranus/Pluto and the Solar Eclipse.

In Israel the worst case scenario played out: Bibi Netanyahu’s Likud party was the winner of the vote, and almost for sure he will maintain his position as leader of Israel.  And as the election was still playing out on Election Day, he complained out loud about the droves of Arabs going to the polls.  And he stated that with his win the two state solution with the Palestinians was dead.

That in effect would mean that the peace process would end, and that the apartheid style of domination of Palestinians would get even worse.

Yes he took those statements back after he won, but of course he had to in order to try to retain support from America and the International community.

But these events in Israel promise much more conflict, turmoil and war in the Middle East, not a very graceful entry into the Age of Aquarius.

And if the nuclear talks with Iran do not bring some kind of framework resolution over the next 10 days or so, we can expect tremendous chaos before long in the Middle East.

This past week also brought two devastating attacks by ISIS, one killing almost 20 tourists in Tunisia and another one killing over a hundred people in Yemen.

And in Frankfurt Germany this past week there were protests that turned into huge riots over banks and the economy.

And now we are in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the aforementioned Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces.   And true to Pisces there is an emotional outpouring and more chaotic feelings that are not easy to find a center within.

We are being taken out of our usual default positions inside ourselves and in our lives, so that we may be more able to let in the changes.  With Pisces there is a need to surrender control and trust the process of the Universe.

Yes some ugly energies have been released this past week, but we as individual humans can choose trust and love, or fear and anger.

What has been released is part of the process to get us where we need to go. If on a personal level in your own life this past week you experienced or expressed “negative” emotions, do your best not to judge or jump to conclusions too fast.

The “demons”, so to speak, were waiting at the entry of the opening portal.  They have been released into our collective consciousness.

Now it is time to “regroup” and reintegrate, to come back to our inner core and center.  There are more challenging winds of change ahead, and it is imperative we each keep a spiritual perspective and be true to our best human values.

I have been letting people know for a long time now that the Middle East would likely implode as part of the journey to an Age of Aquarius.  It is the part of the Earth that birthed many of our original civilizations and organized religions, and as such would show us what has gone wrong and what needs to be changed.

Planetarily speaking, we move now toward the second eclipse this Spring Eclipse Season 2015:  A Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra.   This Eclipse will have Uranus and Pluto in its signature, as Uranus will be conjunct the Sun in Aries and opposite the Moon in Libra; and Pluto in Capricorn will be square the Sun and Moon.  This will happen on April 4.

Since Uranus and Pluto will still be close be being exactly square (since they were exact on March 16), it will be another powerful Eclipse event.  We will discuss that more at our next Perspectives column next week.

And keep in mind that after the last of two eclipses this spring, we will continue to have more changes and dramatic events.

Whatever swirls through our lives during this portal opening now, which continues through the Lunar Eclipse on April 4, will tend to activate events at and after the New Moon in Aries on April 18.

In your personal life and soul journey, there may be more emotional and spiritual processing to go through over the next couple of weeks.  More “negativity” may be released as the positive light rays of this opening portal meet the energies that block out this light.  As those blocks are cracked open, they are more able to be released.

So do not hold onto the fear or anger or jealousy, etc.. Do not stop to judge your self for feeling or expressing them. Instead release them, and release those people or situations or attitudes or beliefs or stuck old patterns that have held them for you.

As you release, you open your vessel to the light frequencies, and in the process bring back trust and hope and more love and wisdom.

You do not deserve to stay stuck or in pain or trapped in your mind or life.  There is nothing you have done that cannot be atoned for, cannot be healed, cannot be resolved sufficiently.  Beating yourself up tells the Universe you are not ready for moving on from the past.

You will be given the opportunity during this Pisces Eclipse Lunar Cycle, which lasts until April 18, to face your old ghosts and demons and release them as part of your transformational process.

Are there people in your life or thoughts in your head that mirror back to you the old negative self image you keep holding onto.  Let it go now so you can be ready to move forward after the Aries New Moon on April 18.

And in our greater world, much will similarly swirl around during this portal opening.  The old fear based ways will continue to rear their ugly heads as they did at the Israeli elections this past week.

The global economy, governmental and military/police controls are in the process of huge transformation.  Those old ways hold up the old world and its corruption, its needs to perpetuate patterns of domination and control and unhealthy self interest.  It needs to be changed and the coming events will ultimately help in that process.

So many of you have moved far away from being pulled into the games that perpetuate that old world.  You no longer can be motivated by the fear it uses to run the old world.  You do not need to play its games, the games that lack heart and soul and trust in nature and the Universe and the human spirit.

But perhaps there are still parts of you that are still influenced and fear the hand of an old judgemental God who will smite you or send you to hell.

If so, now you will have opportunity to release these fears and symbolically send them out to a black hole in the Universe.   Take the next step and tell the Universe you are ready to trust like a child again. You can send that message by releasing that which keeps you chained to your fears, your victimization, and your resentments.

All happens for a reason, even your worst and most horrific events from your past are stepping stones to your self actualization, to your purpose for being here.

See it that way and then so shall it be.

I have created a new YouTube presentation for the Spring Portal.

Till next week,

Leo

As You Know It, So Shall it Be and Astrology Forecast September 16-22.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Well there is a lot going on astrologically, and of course that means there is a lot going on in the world.  This forecast blog has been letting people know that the Middle East is center stage in the transformation of our planet from an old age and paradigm to an Aquarian Age.

It is where many of our world’s first civilizations were born and where most of our major religions have their roots.  It is where now much of the toxicity based on dysfunctional patterns of separation abound.

This past week, in connection with the Uranus/Pluto square while Pluto changes direction on September 18/19, the Middle East has been erupting. It is ostensibly in turmoil because of a really dumb and horribly disparaging film about Mohammed and Islam.  I saw much of this film on UTube. It portrays Mohammed as a child molester, a fraud, a homosexual, and also a person who sexually uses women and pillages. It is very weird and poorly made, and very disrespectful of the cherished beliefs of millions of people.

This movie is the match that is igniting the dry brush of perceived disgust and disrespect from western nations and peoples toward Islam and its culture.

If not this movie, something else would have ignited the flames.   Soon Syria, Iran, Israel, Egypt, and many other countries will be drawn into the fires of conflict.  Watch carefully this coming week’s news there, and be aware that in November, after the elections, that Syria and Iran especially will be in the spotlight of world affairs and a possible Israeli or western powers invasion could occur.

In November, while Mercury is retrograde, there will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on November 13. That is the exact date anniversary of the coup that brought the Assad family and the Baathist Shiite party in to power in Syria. That was November 13, 1970.

Soon afterwards this year there will be a second eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini on November 28.    Mars will be triggering the Uranus/Pluto square then also as it makes conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn on November 27.

The fires of transformation will be especially strong in late October through December.    This coming week brings much opportunity for healing and transformation also.

The week’s power begins today Saturday September 15 with a New Moon in Virgo at 10:11 PM EDT.   As with all new moons, it is time for new beginnings.   In Virgo it becomes time to get more grounded and real. Virgo is skeptical of anything that flies too high or that stops being “real”.

It is indeed time to get your head out of any dream world clouds of fantasy or illusion, and to see life for real,as that way you can get your life to work better and be more ordered and efficient.  Simplifying your life and fixing and healing what needs to be fixed and healed, is also aligned for this lunar cycle.

Since the Uranus/Pluto square is opening up now also, especially strong because Pluto is stationary, going from retrograde to direct; there is much intensity to deal with.  Change is in the air, and you can best use this time period to allow your deeper issues to come up to the surface where they can better be worked with.  In fact it may be very difficult at times to hold the energies back.

Transformation and healing are dependent on feeling our issues emotionally, not just looking at them intellectually.  In feeling them, we are at the deeper level from which true change is possible.  So at times like this, you may get into emotional discussions that bring up uncomfortable issues that have been previously kept securely “under the rug” of our consciousness.

As they come up, we better understand “where we are at” on a deeper level, and can then better judge if we want to improve something or some relationship or if we want to let it go.  Can an old pattern be healed and transformed, or is it indicative of something that has died and must be let go?

These are not times to stubbornly hold onto the status quo of “same-old, same-old” in our lives. The deck of our lives is being reshuffled and we need to be ready to shift what needs to shifted.

A new chapter of our lives has begun, and we must do our best to see it that way. If we do we can give perspective to what needs to be changed.  What ways are reflective of how we were leading our lives in the chapter that is passing?    What new ways of being have we recently opened up to and are getting used to?

Release what keeps you stuck in old and unsatisfactory attitudes and beliefs.  Embrace that which makes you feel better about your self and life.  You want to be aligned with your authentic soul self and with the Universe, free to see the truth and to love and be loved.  The old patterns of programming from society and family and past lives has not served you so far, so why would they now?

It may feel sometimes that when you release and let things go, that there will be nothing to replace them, but there will be. Life always fills up the vacuum of what has been released, in time.

When you see the destruction in the greater world now, the hatreds and intolerance, the chaos and attempts to militaristically bring order, stay out of its way.

Do not let yourself get emotionally hooked into the dramas, taking sides and picking out enemies.  What is happening is meant to clear the way for a New World. Those who are hooked in are a part of that old world, and will need this time to hopefully see that this is all so toxic and dysfunctional and reflective of a world filled with beliefs of separation.

We are all one, with many shades and differences and orientations. We are all one family. There is dark and light in everything, “good and bad” in everyone and everything, so to speak. There is no religion or race or nation, or sexual orientation superior to any other.   We were created as a Unified Whole, and every cell in that Whole is also meant to  be Whole.

The Aquarian Age is about equality and Diversity in Unity, liberation and freedom, all the opposites joined as one.  Night and Day are unified to make the whole day. Yin and Yang are connected in circular oneness, hot and cold do not fight for which is better. The plug and outlet are meant to be joined.

It is time for each of us to know that all the dots in the Universe are connected with sacred meaning, not in random nothingness.

As you know it, so shall it be.

Use these powerful planetary movements to help you to let go of limiting beliefs, and of an old world and its paradigm, which is on the edge of destruction.  Instead use the transformational openings that are being created to find new connections, and to embrace the Love and Truth that are the pillars that hold up our Universe.

Next Saturday, when we “speak” again, it will be time for the Autumn Equinox, the balancing of the scales of Libra. It will be the “sunset” time of year, when we start our yin-ward movement toward more yearnings for relationship and deeper meaning.

see you next week,

Leo

Liberation and Self Determination in an Aquarian Age, and Astrology Forecast for February 6-12

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on February 5, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

During the eclipse season, and as Jupiter triggered the powerful aspects from the summer of 2010, important events have taken center stage in our lives.   The biggest and most important development are the liberation movements in Tunisia and Egypt, and the intitial spark of liberation and revolution in Yemen, Algeria, Jordan, and Syria.  

We have been letting you know that the Middle East is an integral part of the transformation from an old age and paradigm into a new Aquarian Age, and that big events would happen there.   Now that area is in the beginning of an important process that will eventually shift the power structure of the whole world.

It is not insignificant that most of the major conflicts that the USA has been involved in over the last 30-35 years or so have been in the Middle East and its surrounding area.  There was the conflict in Lebanon during the Reagan years; the terrorist attacks during the Olympics in the ’70s; the Iranian crisis in 1979/80; the Desert Storm war with Iraq in 1990/91;  many Palestinian crises with Israel; the USA attack on Afghanistan after 9-11; and the sabre rattling against Iran over the last few years.

Oil is a big reason for the conflicts, but the presence of Israel in the Middle East is the biggest reason. Israel is a strategic partner of the western world, especially the USA.  They give the USA a foothold on the geopolitically important Middle East.  The USA is hated by many in the the Arab and Muslim world largely because of its close relationship and obvious partiality to Israel.    That relationship was a central reason/excuse for the 9-11 attack on the twin towers in the USA.

The countries that are experiencing the revolutionary forces of change, most notably Egypt, are strong allies of Israel and the USA. This is true even though the citizens of these countries are quite arguably anti-Israel and therefore anti-USA.   The upheavals in these countries threaten the status quo and threatens the allegiance these countries  have to the Israel and the USA.

Do we believe in democracy regardless of who wins?  We did not when Hamas was victorious in Palestine.  We declared them terrorists and did not recognize their legitimacy, even though the Palestinian people spoke loud and clear otherwise.

The credibility and soul of the United States is at stake now.  Do we believe in true democracy, self determination for people and countries?  Do we truly believe in liberation and freedom and equality for all.  Do we truly now keep the integrity of our founding principles, principles that are “god given” Universal values, principles aligned with the USA natal Moon in Aquarius, as we collectively enter an Aquarian Age?

If the USA continues to try to influence the Egyptian people’s process in order to keep our and Israel’s influence in the Middle East, are we staying with our founding principles?   So far we havebeen trying to walk the line between supporting the liberation of the Egyptian people and supporting the dictator Mubarak- who has been in league with the USA and Israel.   How can we believe in democracy and the will of the people when we support dictatorships in places like Egypt and Saudi Arabia?  How can we continue to speak out against injustices in the world when we support such governments?

Make no mistake about it, what is happening in the Middle East, with all the liberation movements, is affecting us all.    There is something huge and  profoundly important opening up in human consciousness and human lives.  It is not just about the Middle East or Arabs or Muslims. It is about walls of oppression falling down so individual human beings can be free and valued, self determining and responsible for themselves and the world they live in.

It happened in the Soviet Union in the late ’80s and early ’90s. It happened when the Berlin wall came down. It happened in South Africa when Nelson Mandela left prison to lead the black people to freedom, liberation and equality. It happened in Iran when they overthrew the Shah who was a puppet for the USA and western world.

The Aquarian Age vibration is sounding deeper, louder and with increasing clarity. It is rumbling inside each of us.  We can use the courageous energies of Aries, which is permeating our consciousness now as Jupiter and soon Uranus travel through that sign.   We can begin to more and more confidently leave our own individual oppressive situations, so we can be more free to find our authentic selves, to know more about our purpose, to be more deeply connected to our free souls, minds, and spirits.

But it is important to realize it is not always easy to leave a familiar though confining and oppressive situation. It has not been easy for the Egyptian people to stand up to the Egyptian government and military who represent a semblance of security and stabilty for them. It is not easy to speak up to a boss at work or to leave a relationship that is stable though limits your freedom to be true to your self.  It is not easy to break out of family roles or expectations or dysfunctional patterns in order to be more fully true to your real and authentic self.

The astrological aspects that seek to break us out of these old stuck patterns so we be free to find and actualize our selves and our potential destinies will not end any time soon.  The pressures to break out will get stronger.  Liberation movements around the world have just begun.  If you belive we can all just ride through the strorm and then go back to same-old, same-old, you are mistaken. 

The waves of big world and personal transformational change have just begun

Spring and summer 2011 will bring even bigger events and changes than is happening in Egypt.   There are 3 eclipses in a row from early June through early July, the last one on July 1 a Solar Eclipse New Moon Grand Cross in Cancer that is more powerful than the one last summer.

It is best to get out of old stuck habits that give you the illusion of order and stability.  Release them and begin to open up to the natural energies in your heart and soul. They will bring you where you need to go and you will be safe in the arms of the Universe- as long as you stay in your personal empowerment and creative choice as well.

This week

The week ahead is the first quarter of the moon since the turning point last week of a New Moon in Aquarius on the same day as Imbolc. That ended the last lunar cycle of the current round of eclipses, and many truly felt shift to less heaviness and “darkness”. Keep riding that wave forward this coming week, until Thursday/Friday when the second quarter moon begins in Taurus.  It will be time then to pause your movement forward to make sure you are grounded and practical in your endeavors. The Full Moon will not be until February 18, right before the Sun moves into Pisces.  It will be a Leo Full Moon that day.

See you next week,

Leo
