Co-Creation and Astrology Forecast December 9-15

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now facing the first winds of change from the new Eclipse Season. The first actual eclipse this Eclipse Season is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on January 5, 2019.

Since Eclipse Season began last week at the Sagittarius New Moon, a few important world developments have intensely unfolded:

1)  The stock market is barreling downward rapidly, more significantly than many people understand

2) Mueller’s investigation has revealed information that strongly suggests Donald Trump’s presidency is in a very precarious position now.

3) Paris is experiencing  well attended rallies from its people that have gotten extremely intense in its battles with the police. These rallies were against the proposed increased gas taxes, but even after significant compromise from the government, the rallies have continued.

We can expect these issues to intensify in January, as others will capture much attention as well.  Israel is hot and close to major battles with Hamas and Hezbollah.  Russia is fanning flames of battle with Ukraine. The power of the Feminine is growing more and more every day in contrast to the old world’s paradigm and privileges.

All this shows us more evidence of a USA and Western world in the beginning stages of deep change and transformation on the road to the Age of Aquarius.

We can now see the light of that New Age beginning to shine through the darkness of these aforementioned troubles.

People are beginning to build up the muscles of “power to the people”; an unfair economic system is beginning to crumble to an eventual transformation into something more equitable; corruption of the old world ways is being challenged; and the Diversity Within Unity structure of a new Age of Aquarius world is beginning to show itself.

But I am sure you can see how this process of transformation will temporarily get darker and more intense soon.

That first eclipse on January 5 is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn 15+ degrees.  Pluto and Saturn will both be conjunct that Solar Eclipse.  That strongly suggests this Eclipse represents a big turning point in time concerning structures and institutions, old rules and regulations, responsibilities and outer world material issues.

There is a potentially destructive piece to the energy of this planetary event.  That is so because both Saturn and Pluto conjunct that Solar Eclipse.

In personal lives, there is a need around this Solar Eclipse to question your status quo; to look more closely at the rules you have been answering to; to be more in touch with your ambitions and what you want to accomplish in life.

There is a weighing of whether to keep old ways or instead to purge those old ways from your life and consciousness.

This is merely the beginning of added attention to the issues of Capricorn.  Already both Saturn and Pluto are in Capricorn for an extended stay. Then in 2020 Jupiter joins up with them as they do a threesome of conjunctions with one another.

That year brings us to both Jupiter and Saturn exactly conjunct the USA natal Pluto in its second house.  Pluto will conjunct itself (a Pluto Return) 2021-2025. 

This will be the first Pluto Return for the relatively young country of America.

With Jupiter and Saturn and Pluto all making conjunction with the USA natal Pluto over the next few years, we can expect massive change in the USA power structure of its Military/Industrial Complex.

That means the Economy and Military will be big-time transforming right before our eyes.  And all this synchronizes well with the important Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0+ degrees of Aquarius on the Winter Solstice December 21 date in 2020.

This symbolizes a portal opening into the Age of Aquarius. 

We do not want to view it as people did with Y2K or even more so with the end of the Mayan Calendar (even though amazingly that December 21 day is the same day predicted for 2012 as the ending of the Mayan Calendar).

We do not expect anywhere near a perfectly Aquarian World to magically appear that day.  Nevertheless there will be some obvious Aquarian Age symbols to be seen then, even as we will continue to view more intense struggling in transition between the ages.

It is best to see that time period as a “turning the corner” into the New Age, never to go back (so to speak).

It is no mere coincidence that there will be an important Presidential Election date in November 2020, preceding the Jupiter/Saturn Conjunction in Aquarius in December 2020.

Between now and then there will be many more birth pains and contractions, as we let an old age die as a new one is being born.

There are many similarities now with the stock market crash of 1929 and its subsequent economic Depression, compared to what is brewing now as Trump/Hoover preside in America.

And the similarities between Nixon/Watergate in the 70s,  with Trump/Russiagate now are even more startling.

And overall the similarities between the ’60s/70s revolution and what has been happening over the last few years now is also rather obvious.

Many full circles are playing out and Transformation is alive and well.

Later this week we enter the 2nd quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 7. That second quarter begins on Saturday December 15- in Pisces.

So we continue moving onward and upward toward climax on December 22 at the Full Moon in Cancer just a day after Winter Solstice 2018.

It is a great time now for positive intentions, prayers, and positive visualizations. There is more chance of actualizing what is visualized during a Sagittarius lunar cycle, especially this year with Jupiter also in Sagittarius.

Co-creation with the Universe may be especially productive now.

Mercury moves into Sagittarius this Wednesday the 12th, adding an even more conducive energy for positive visualization and affirmation.

Remember however that alignment with the Universe is essential when using positive visualization, as the relationship between you and the Universe is what creates the magic.

There is one more significant planetary movement this week.

At the beginning of the week, on Sunday December 9, Chiron shifts from Retrograde to Direct- at 28 degrees of Pisces.  

Chiron is a bridge between realities.  As such it is a significant bridge between the divine and human- between Higher Self and Ego Self.

It sits in the heavens between Saturn and Uranus, between the more traditional gods closest to Earth, and those of the more distant heavens, who were not known about until after 1781.

Saturn is representative of an Old Testament God of punishment for transgressions of not abiding by the rules (like the 10 commandments).

Uranus is representative of an awakening and liberation from the chains of old conditioning.

In between Saturn and Uranus is where Chiron always resides in the heavens.

In 1977 when it was discovered, Close Encounters of a 3rd kind and Star Wars were both showing for the first time in theaters.

The heavens were closer than ever before in our collective human consciousness.

Now as Chiron goes back Direct and soon into new day Aries, our “planet” of building bridges connects our ego self to the divine realms.

What better time to make positive visualizations that are in co-creation with the Universe?

Till next week,

Leo

Chaos versus Order and Astrology Forecast May 29-June 4

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 28, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Mercury is now Direct but Mars is still Retrograde until June 29.

Thinking and perceiving should be getting clearer, decisions should be easier to make; but it is not time yet to fully move forward into this new phase of your life.

Nevertheless, by the end of this week there will be more spirited energy to woork with, increased mental activiity and a growing need to connect with others and to communicate.

But first we deal with the last quarter of the lunar cycle, starting Sunday the 29th of May.  With the Moon being in Pisces that day, the pull will be inward and yin-ward, processing all that has happened over the last weeks.

Last quarters of lunar cycles are for processing, going inward and preparing for new beginnings at the New Moon.

The next New Moon will be in Gemini on Saturday June 4.

Before that efforts to get moving faster forward could be thwarted or held back.

Also this week the Sun will be making aspect to Saturn and Neptune, This will touch off an important aspect this year:   Saturn square Neptune. The next exact aspect between them will be on June 17.

Saturn and Neptune have a cycle between them that lasts over 100 years. The most recent cycle began as they were conjunct each other (in the same place in the zodiac) in the late 1980s and early ’90s.

Saturn is law and order, rules and regulations, boundaries and limits. Neptune is surrender and allowing, openness and trust, no boundaries or limits. At its zenith Saturn is right wing fascism. At its zenith Neptune is anarchy.

While Saturn says no under all circumstances, Neptune is open to everyone and everything.

In our country this Saturn square Neptune aspect has been manifesting as thougts of building a wall to keep out immigrants versus letting everyone in.

In Europe it translates into open borders for immigrants from the Middle East versus strict nationalism keeping all but natives out..

In the late ’80s and early ’90s, at the last conjunction between Saturn and Neptune, the Soviet Union was breaking down and South Africa was breaking down apartheid’s oppression over black people.

So though they fought for old rules and ways, eventually the boundaries were broken down in each instance.

It happened relatively gracefully in each instance. Sometimes, however, Neptune can be quite chaotic and even anarchic if it does not see “progressive”results. Saturn can be quite oppressive and fascistic if rules and boundaries are being broken.

The Neptune/Saturn square is triggered this week, as the Sun makes aspect to both Neptune and Saturn.

Watch for the above themes to be playing out.

Saturn is also structure, laws and institutions. Neptune circumvents structures as water moves around, through and under rocks and solid structures. Neptune is mythologically “god of the ocean” and signifies water.

As Neptune and Saturn do their “square” dance with one another, there may be large protests or even riots. This aspect is intensely in effect all this year.

At its worst there can be martial law (Saturn) or complete anarchy (Neptune).

What Russia is doing in many of its old Baltic states- like Ukraine- may be in part to bring back the remnants of the old Soviet Union.

Some countries now are symbolic of Saturn/Neptune as their boundaries are more unclear: Iraq, Syria, and LIbya.

As we change ages old borders and rules and paradigms are meant to transform.  Our world is already looking and feeling differently and will continue ot do so.  By the 2020’s we will not recognize our world now in the same way.  Personal lives are changing radically also.

In your own life what structures are coming undone in your life? What old rules you used to live by don’t feel right anymore? Are you too permisive or too strict with your children, mate, family, or friends?  Do you have “open borders” ot yoru heart or is your heart closed?

On June 4 at 11 PM there is a New Moon in Gemini. This should give some much needed energy to those who have felt shut down or depressed lately. The mind especially will be energized and teaching and learning are encouraged over the next month. Gemini also is more social than its predecessor Taurus. It is quite the communicator and talker and can deliver information like a pure journalist (which is hard to find nowadays).

This New Moon in Gemini means it is time to move forward, but watch your step on anything important as Mars (planet of action and forward movement) is still Retrograde. Your big steps forward into new and important places waits till July and beyond. The New Era is held in abeyance.

This New Era is leading to the Age of Aquarius.  There is nothing to stop this wave of change.

Nevertheless, we humans do have input on how this will all turn out.  Do we fight to the death (literally) to keep the old ways or do we open ourselves up to deep healing and transformation.

President Obama was the first American president to ever visit Hiroshima Japan where we dropped an atomic bomb, killing almost 100,000 people the vast majority innocent civilians.  A few days later we dropped another atomic bomb on Nagasaki, killing another 100,000 people.

To his credit President Obama went there to pay respects ot those who suffered and died as a result of our tragic bombing.  An apology would have been better.

But these weapons of mass destruction represent our collective human hatreds and unconscious desires to destroy our selves and our world.

We can hope and pray that our collective consciousness evolves enough to let in the light and love of the Age Of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

 I am officially changing the webinar dates from beginning June 4 to beginning August 6 then continuing on August 13, and 20.  Here is what the webinar will continue to be:

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.

 I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world evetns will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at soulus@aol.com.  Fee is $120 to be paid prior to the classes.  Fee will transacted through PayPal or check to my address. Please write me at soulus@aol.com for more information and ot sign up.

2015: Year of Revolutionary and Evolutionary Change and Astrology Forecast December 28- January 3

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 27, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

2014 is coming to a close this week.  For most it has been a powerful year of change, transformational change into a new chapter of life.

New jobs, homes, relationships have manifested.   A new outlook on life, new spiritual perspectives and practices, awakenings, disillusionment, and breaking out of old programming are other ways change had been activated this past year.

The most important astrological event was the Cardinal Grand Cross last spring and early summer.  It combined with a couple of eclipses and Uranus square Pluto then also.

And in the autumn there were two more eclipses, and Uranus and Pluto were exactly square again.

In the greater world the Cardinal Grand Cross activated several prominent world events including the turmoil in Ukraine; the Ebola scare; the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza; the advancement of ISIS in Iraq and Syria; the killing of unarmed black men in Ferguson, New York and elsewhere; and the serious attempts to resolve issues with Iran.

We let you know last winter that the Cardinal Grand Cross would initiate a most important phase of transformation into an Age of Aquarius.  And combined with the exact Uranus/Pluto square that has been lasting from 2012-1015, we would see our world go through immense change both personally and globally.

We also let you know that the Cardinal Grand Cross was very close to America’s natal Sun in Cancer from its birth chart of July 4, 1776.   That would mean the United States would begin its transformation into a more equal member of the world community, beginning to let go of its Superpower status at the head of a western Empire on Earth.  It means America will change greatly in very fundamental ways.

This change had only just begun at the Cardinal Grand Cross and eclipses in April 2014. We predicted that the world as we know it would be quite altered in the 18 months after the April 2014 aspects.

That takes us to Autumn 2015 and yes America’s economy and standing in the world will change dramatically during the next 10 or 11 months.

The Middle East will continue to be a focal point of change, and it could very well trigger a world war during these next several months.  But also it is possible instead, as we have seen with the negotiations with Iran and the opening of relations with Cuba, changes that are aligned with the Age of Aquarius may require no major conflicts or wars.

In personal lives there will be more movement toward letting go of old programming from society and family that keeps you stuck in old self defeating ways.

There will be more awakening to truths that will set you free of the chains of dysfunctional and toxic beliefs, attitudes and patterns.

You will be assisted by the Universe to leave relationships, homes, and career orientations that are not aligned with your authentic being and your true function in the world community.

Another powerful year of change is ahead.

And the most meaningful time period this year will be late winter and spring.   Uranus will make its last exact square to Pluto on March 16, followed closely by a very strong Spring Equinox Day that will include a Total Solar Eclipse in very late Pisces.

This is symbolic of great clearings and endings on the one hand, and very important fresh new winds of renewal. This will all be followed by another eclipse, a Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries/Libra that connects with the Uranus/Pluto square to form a powerful Cardinal T-Square, almost as important as the Cardinal Grand Cross.

These aspects in late winter and spring of 2015 can be looked at as “Grand Openings” into the full immersion of our human souls into the transition from a Pisces Age to a Age of Aquarius.

World Events that last into the summer of 2015 and beyond will change our world perhaps even more drastically than in 2014.

There will be no more holding onto the shore of the old ways without a great price to pay spiritually, psychologically and perhaps even physically.

The ways you have been changing to make your self healthier spiritually, mentally and physically will require a stronger commitment from you during the late winter and spring.

Sitting on the fence of two worlds will no longer work, as the fence is going to break down.

It will be a wonder-full year of shifting tides in 2015.

This coming week brings the culture’s symbolic date for changing years.

And it could be a very energized New Year’s Eve and Day as the waxing Moon this week lasts all the way to Sunday the 4th at the Full Moon in Cancer, which we will talk more about next week.

In addition to the waxing phase of the lunar cycle playing out at the transition between 2014 and 2015; there will also be a very spirited Mars in Aquarius opposite Jupiter in Leo then.

So the winds of increasing energy will blow in this week and January 1 is the day when Mars makes exact aspect to Jupiter.

Mars in Aquarius brings in  high energies with social consciousness and desires for social connection even if only on social media.   Jupiter in Leo brings inspiration into creative and open-hearted expression.  There is also a greater tendency to self focus with Jupiter in Leo.

Many people could even be rather manic with this aspect, and this may cause leaps into what could bring trouble.  In the greater world this could translate into individuals or groups leaping into dangerous adventures.

Allow yourself to feel joy and positive vibes, but be careful not to leap before you look.

Next week’s Full Moon in Cancer will include both Uranus and especially Pluto in its signature, so this could be a week of change too.

Remember also that we are in Sun in Capricorn time of year, so of course resolutions are in order.  Also Sun in Capricorn means we can make plans to manifest our dreams or ideas now.  That will require, however, concrete plans, organization, discipline, and structured steps to implementing the plan.

Many people demonize Capricorn’s ruling planet, Saturn.  But Saturn represents the gravitational pull to keep free spirits here on Earth to fulfill their purpose in a given lifetime.

So use this Capricorn time of year to take full responsibility for your life and hence out of victim mentality.  That will make Saturn as your servant, not your tormenter any longer.

See you next week,

Leo

To Change or Not to Change and Astrology Forecast November 20- December 6

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 29, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we are still in a waxing Moon phase, as the size of the Moon glow is growing.   This current lunar cycle began last Saturday November 22 at the Sagittarius New Moon.   The second quarter lunar phase begins today November 29 in Pisces.  Then the Full Moon will be in Gemini on December 6.

After that Full Moon, the size of the glow of the Moon begins to recede, until it fades completely away before the next New Moon in Capricorn on Winter Solstice December 21.

In the greater world, that Sagittarius New Moon on November 22 sparked strong new beginnings for the new chapter of life we are all experiencing.

The Ferguson Grand Jury refused to indict police officer Wilson, who shot and killed an unarmed black young man, Michael Brown, in Ferguson Missouri.  Expected protests and riots erupted as a result in Ferguson, as well as in several other large cities in America.

Also last week Iran and world powers fell short of an agreement on Iran’s nuclear program, kicking the can down the diplomatic road for another 7 months.

Both of these situations remain volatile, however, as world powers are flexing their muscles of control and domination over peoples who have been deemed as dangerous to World Order.

Order versus Chaos opposing energies are building inside Pandora’s box of old dynamics and patterns.   The Old World and its old hierarchal order is being threatened with great change.

In the United States, those who have enjoyed power and privilege are fighting the inevitable reshuffling of the deck of an old paradigm.

In numbers alone, it will not be long before those who have been considered the minority will be in the majority in the USA

That is why what happened in Ferguson and what happened when President Obama gave amnesty to so many illegal and mostly Hispanic immigrants is so important.

The New Chapter of life in America is in part about this rebalancing of power.   Some will fight to hold onto the old paradigm and its power structure and privileges, while others will continue to speak out, protest, and perhaps even be violent in order to gain more rights in the New Age.

Remember that the Age of Aquarius is about equality and Diversity into Unity.  So we are now, and in the near future working out how that will eventually manifest.

The Iranian Situation shows us how Iran is trying to grow beyond being a world order outcast.  It is doubtful it will truly fit into the Old Order, and instead it will be part of the new paradigm for a New Age.

The Arab Spring brought much energy for breaking outside the box of an Old Paradigm of dictators, despots, “royalty”, and colonial powers dominating the people.

Though at the time there was much change breaking out to go beyond the old rules in Arab and North African countries, much is still to be desired there.

In fact in Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood was elected to office in what appeared to be a fair election.  But then there were protests against their reign of exclusion of those outside the Brotherhood.   And then the past came roaring back, so to speak, as the Military ruthlessly took over the country again.

The Middle East is only in the beginning stages of powerful and explosive transformation, as can also be seen in the spiking of conflict between Israel and Palestine, the war in Syria, and the rise of the Islamic State in what was Iraq and Syria.

There is a Changing of the Guard in America, the Middle East and all over the world as we prepare for an Age of Aquarius. The details of how it all turns out are still fuzzy, but know that the world as we know it will not continue to exist.

Though it may appear otherwise at times, the undertow of Universal energy is toward a world that is more fair, and more concerned with truth and love than wealth, fame, and dominating power.

In our personal lives, many of the transformational shifts will be in our awareness, our consciousness, our beliefs and patterns of behavior.

How much are you attached to the ego carrots from the Old Paradigm?   And how much do you truly trust spirit, heart and soul, and free mind?   Do you fear not measuring up to what society or family or your own ego expects of you?  Or do you trust the unfolding of your authentic self and its soul journey?

How badly have you been programmed into wanting or needing the accolades given by the culture, for instance by fighting and even dying for your country in a war, or being as skinny as society deems a woman should be to be attractive?

How much do you have to be tough and unfeeling as a man or unselfishly always giving as a woman?   How much are you controlled by what others think of your house or personal wealth or some other status symbol?

And of course it is through relationship where we are most challenged to grow.   Do you need to grow more beyond thinking your life is someone else’s fault, that your unhappiness in your relationship would be over if someone else could only change?

Or do you blame your self for everything?

Relationships stop working for many reasons, but almost never do they stop working because of one person.  It is a relationship issue that needs to worked out if it can be worked out.

And sometimes, just like spring turning into summer, it is time for a relationship to end- or at the least change its form.

Big changes in your relationships in 2014 are a part of the powerful planetary configurations that have occurred this year, most especially signified by the Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year.

These changing winds may have brought old issues forcefully to the surface or brought new events that have changed your relationship landscape in a big way.

What has happened has been for a reason, and has happened in alignment with the turning of the Universe’s wheels into a new season of a new age.

One of the bigger planetary aspects going on now and which will continue into next year is the square of Uranus and Pluto.  These transformational giants whose conjunction with one another brought on the ’60s revolution, are now powerfully revolutionizing our personal lives and the world again.

In fact on December 14/15 this year there will be another exact square of Uranus and Pluto.    It is another turning point moment of deciding to ride the tide of change into transformed beliefs and attitudes, releasing toxic and dysfunctional patterns of thought and behavior, and trusting the soul of the Universe and your self to bring the energies needed for positive change.

Or you can cling to the “way it has been and will always continue to be”- same old thinking and behavior that keeps the status quo humming along forever.

But if you cling to these old ways yourself, please don’t complain about things never changing or getting better.  Change happens inside each one of us, not ultimately by some outside force.

Yes the Universe is providing the energies of change, but people can decide to build fortresses of resistance to such change.  And then even if some event brings a storm of changing winds, a person then can keep the same attitudes and beliefs they had before the storm blew in. Or maybe even become more cynical.

And then you will attract the same relationships but with a different face, or a new job but with the same issues coming back again.

Now and for some months more, there is new light and love and truth beaming its rays of change, wanting to move through the traumas and wounds that have kept us stuck in our misery.

You can make the changes, but you do need to believe and to make the effort.

This week the waxing Moon will take us to a Full Moon next Saturday December 6 at 7:27 AM EST.  It will be in Sagittarius/Gemini and will be quite lively and animated, filled with great conversations, new ideas, inspirations and information.

We will discuss more about that next week.

till then,

Leo

A New Normal and Astrology Forecast November 23-29.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 22, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Earlier this morning of Saturday November 22 2014 at 7:30 AM EST there was a New Moon in Sagittarius.  It is truly on the cusp between Scorpio and Sagittarius, though certainly Sagittarius.  It was at 0 Sagittarius 07.

If you have been in a depression or in a funk or just feeling kind of down or negative, this New Moon in Sagittarius should give you a spark of renewed life and maybe even joy.

This fiery New Moon turns the ignition for the new chapter on our lives,  post Autumn Eclipse Season.   With all the important and powerful planetary movements in 2014, including the most important Cardinal Grand Cross,  this is a very meaningful time period coming up.

That New Moon ignition starts our journey into a “new normal” as the old sense of “normal” is dying to leave our consciousness.  Stop trying now to go back to how it used to be.  That chapter has closed and pushing against locked doors can only cause stress, frustration and exhaustion.

Since this New Moon is truly on the cusp and thus does include some Scorpio influence, we can expect the remnants of the past to cry for attention.  Do you truly need to still find resolution or healing from what has happened in the past?   Or is it time for those traumas and ghosts of the past to just be released, to turn your back on them even if not 100% resolved or healed.

If those old wounds just bring you more drama without satisfaction, over and over again; then it is time to just release and trust a better chapter is on the way.

Yes trust and faith are important now as we enter Sagittarius territory.  You will have the fires of inspiration and meaning at your disposal now. Just open your mind and heart for them and they will be there.

Please keep in mind that the true new lunar cycle begun at this New Moon in Sagittarius is not energetically alive until after the first sliver of lighted Moon can be viewed.   So that will happen either tonight or tomorrow night.  Afterwards the light of initiatory fire will be lit and events that are natural to occur in this New Chapter of life will erupt.  In the meantime it is a good time to meditate or pray, to use visualization and make intention.

In the greater world, the Cardinal Grand Cross and associated planetary movements this year brought with them Islamic State; Ukraine/Russia crisis; Ferguson Missouri racial tensions; Israeli/Palestinian violence;  immigration bill standstills in America; the Ebola virus becoming serious; and attempts to solve the crisis with Iran’s nuclear program.

These events are all important in ushering in a new chapter of global life, a new normal for world distribution of equality and power, and a stronger road forward to the Age of Aquarius.

Though it often seems we are going backwards, and deeper into “us versus them” hatred and violence; we are instead breaking down the old structures and beliefs that keep us stuck in the past.

The old establishment is fighting for its life to keep alive the “old normal”, but this cannot last except on life support systems that will eventually fail.   So many more people now are awakening to the dysfunctionality and toxicity of that old world.

All these powerful events that have erupted this year show us how much we  are all connected all over this world, and only by realizing this and working together can we create a new world.   It is the “us versus them” mentality that breeds hatreds, bigotries, and feelings of superiority or inferiority.

Whether we are talking about Ebola or immigration or Ferguson Missouri, etc.; it is the sense of being unified in one big family that will save us.   Aquarius is about community based on accepting and honoring the distinct individualities of humanity.  Diversity into Unity is the Age of Aquarius.

So this week after the New Moon, many of those world events that broke open into our awareness earlier this year will find direction forward this week after this Sagittarius New Moon:

President Obama just took executive action to push the immigration issue forward.  The fallout of that will begin this week.

Ferguson Missouri is on the verge for this coming week of having the Grand Jury determine if police officer Wilson will stand trial or not.  Potential riots and protests loom.

The deadline for Iran’s nuclear talks to be resolved is Monday November 24.  How that turns out is extremely important in Middle East affairs.

Russia has just brought its troops back into Ukraine and it is likely something will happen after this New Moon there.

4 Israeli/Americans were killed by Palestinians this past week and the mood is in a tinder box of intense emotions now.

And it is also likely that events surrounding the Islamic State will come alive this week.

And your personal life is also ready now to move more fully forward to a new future, a new Chapter of Life, a new normal.   This current lunar cycle, begun at the Sagittarius New Moon of November 22, inspires us to have the faith to take new adventures.

This new lunar cycle lasts until the Winter Solstice on December 21, which is also the day of the next New Moon, which will be in Capricorn.  During this now current lunar cycle we will encounter the powerfully transformational Uranus/Pluto square on December 14/15.

So we can expect an eventful and meaningful time period ahead.  Keep your head and heart, as much as possible, awake and alive to the “new normal”, not the familiar though dying “old normal”.

This year has caused major breakdowns of that which held up the structures of our “old normal” so we can begin to embrace a new chapter of our lives. This does not mean that the old chapter was necessarily bad or good.  It just means that the cycle of our life is turning to a new season, and acceptance is helpful to us.

Accepting this reality is important to your health and your personal evolution.   You are leaving old ego dramas that keep you a victim and/or keep you from the authentic being you are ready to more fully embrace.  You are on this Earth for reasons other than doing what you are supposed to do and then dying. Oh and taking vacations and playing with toys to take off the pressure.

You are a soul in a body, on a meaningful journey on this sacred Earth and in this Universe of cycles, symbols and synchronicities.  You are returning to Love and Truth, the reasons why life exists at all.

Till next week,

Leo

Ruminating in the Cave and Astrology Forecast November 16-22

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 15, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week is the last quarter of the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 23.    We are passing through the second Eclipse Season of 2014, and quite a ways past now from the Cardinal Grand Cross that was earlier this year.

Much of the dust should be settling from the intensity of the stormy winds of change this year.  As we enter the last quarter lunar cycle, Neptune is changing directions on the 16th also.  As it shifts from Retrograde to Direct, its inner directed soulful flowing water waves take us deep inside.  It is time this week to ruminate and reflect and heal.   Venus moving into Sagittarius brings some upliftment through human interaction, but the overriding energy this week drives us inward and yin-ward.

Whether you are totally aware of it or not, you have entered a new season or chapter of your life this year.  Just look back at where you were in February of 2014, and look at where you are now.

For many these last several months have been earth shaking with change.  For others the change has been more internal, with their attitudes and belief systems. And maybe also they have been awakened to dysfunctional patterns of behavior or relating that they are in the process of shifting and transforming.

You may not yet know exactly where you are going yet, but you should know by now where you do not want to go or do anymore

The greater world has also gone through immense changes this year.  Back in February there was no Ukraine/Russia issue that threatened old world security.  ISIS had not yet overtaken Mosul, the second biggest city in Iraq, and alerted the world that they were a grave danger to the structure and security of the world and its paradigm.  Ebola was not a great scare yet, and the Palestinians and Israeli’s were still at a plateau of pretending to get along.

Now it should also be even more obvious that the USA governmental bodies, including the Supreme Court, are bought out or at least heavily influenced by Big Money and Big Corporations.  Many fear just how much further we will stray away from our liberty and freedom, but also from our most cherished human values like care for those who are vulnerable or respect for the dignity of all human beings.

How much have we learned to bury our heads in the sands of our electronic devices or busy outer directed lives?   There is so much that is shaking up and changing, yet the media, government and other institutions, though quite obsessed with all the troubles, nevertheless show little promise for showing the way into a new paradigm for living with each other or being in sacredness on this Earth.

But in our own lives, in our own hearts and souls, we are making the changes.   We are coming to realize that leading a life of authenticity is not only desired but essential.  We are learning that our souls and hearts are as important as making our practical lives work well.  We know that we can no longer be OK with being robotic conformists to a world that is not aligned with higher and deeper values, in fact a world that does not see meaning beyond blind loyalty to country, family, and perhaps religion.

Loyalty is a valued trait, but it is an empty structure if not connected to our free hearts, souls, and minds.   Should we be loyal to a country that is driven by Big Corporations and uses the police and military to keep that system intact, even if unfair? Should we be loyal to families that do honor our authenticity or even see us?  Should we be loyal to religions built mainly on empty rules or guilt?

Should not your loyalty be to that or those who are true to deeper values, to love, compassion, fairness and truth?  Should not your primary loyalty be to your authentic soul self and the Universe/God/Goddess?

If these past several months have mainly served helping you to return or further commit to your true and deeper values, to your free mind and heart, to what you know is aligned and with meaning, then you have done well, regardless of material circumstances.

That old chapter of your life is dead and almost buried now, and death is a reality of life.  We may fight its reality with anger, denial, or any of the other stages of accepting death or endings.  There is no going back to how it used to be, to what was considered normal.  It may thus bring sadness and grief, but it also eventually brings renewal and new life.

So now as we enter the last quarter moon cycle, one that moves to a dark moon this week, we let go even more that old phase of our lives, not only on a practical level, but also on a deeper level in our hearts and souls.

If you have been remembering days gone by lately, you are doing what is natural now.  The darkness is stronger this time of year and even more so at a last quarter Moon that brings the end of the Autumn Eclipse Season.  And with Neptune also strong now, most of this week is best experienced with inner reflection.

But next Saturday November 22 brings a big energy shift.  There is a New Moon in Sagittarius on Saturday November 22 at 7:32 AM EST.

Sagittarius requires faith that all is happening for a reason, happening with meaning.    Sagittarius is the centaur with the top half being a human being archer shooting its arrows up to the heavens, searching for that which uplifts, with what has meaning, with what inspires, with what brings joy and maybe new adventure.

In your life and in the greater world, there will be more fire (Sagittarius is a fire sign) to raise a flag for doing what you believe in.  You will have more faith to do what you feel is right to do.

In the greater world, this will mean that countries or leaders will move beyond indecision and do what they feel is best to do.    It will be time to act on one’s beliefs. Watch for events in ferguson Missouri.

Keep in mind that Sagittarius is driven by a strong intuition, and sometimes that intuition can bring with it an impulsiveness to act.

Just check the facts and details before going full blast in a new direction.  Yes it is time to move forward, but you do not need to go all the way all at once.

And also here in America we are close to beginning what is a holiday season for many, and that alone may bring more Sagittarian joy into people’s lives if they do not become too immersed in consumerism and materialism and stress.

There is another exact Uranus square Pluto aspect to experience this year on December 15 and an unusually strong Winter Solstice after that.

See you next week,

Leo

Endings and Beginnings and Astrology Forecast November 9-15

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 8, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we have spoken many times, this year 2014 has largely been about closing old chapters of our lives and getting ready to embrace new ones.

The Cardinal Grand Cross earlier this year gave us the marking point for such powerful change in life.

The recent elections showed a desire for more conservative candidates by a large portion of the American electorate.  I believe this is because the new chapter of our collective life in America is provoking needs for security and bringing up fear in many people.

Back in the late ’60s life was going through such powerful change with a war in Viet Nam, a sexual revolution, changing gender roles, an often violent civil rights movement,  and in general a feeling of chaotic revolution and deep changes in how people live.

So who was elected president in 1968, at the height of the revolution? Richard Nixon was elected even though so many were wanting a new world that would be free of old rules that had chained people’s free hearts and minds to the jailhouse of a status quo System.

Opposed to this revolutionary movement was the silent majority, as it was called then. They needed to keep life as it had been. It was in grave fear that all the rules it counted on and lived by were rapidly being threatened to extinction.  There was even more prejudice and hatred then for those who were of color or were different from the norm, like gays and lesbians. The silent majority wanted women to be kept in their place, for men to stay dominant, sex to be secretive and old fashioned, and war to protect the “American way of life”.

But then there was also burning of bras, and military draft cards torn up, and race riots in the streets of many cities, and marijuana being used to open minds to new ways of thinking and being.  Rock music was defiantly opposed to the old ways. And the new generation of young people, for the first time maybe, were hostile to their parents and their parents’ values.

Yes back then we were in a very powerful time of change- into a new chapter of living in America and the world with the first glimmers of an Age of Aquarius. Yet at the same time many were getting more conservative in order to hold back the tides of change. And of course that is understandable as sometimes change is overwhelming.

Back then Uranus conjunct Pluto had been exact just two years prior, and its waves of change were still quite strong. Now in 2014, we are in the middle of Uranus square Pluto aspects and waves of change are quite strong again.

In Ferguson Missouri there have been riots to protest the killing of a young black man by police. Though we have made an African American man President of the United States there is still racial disharmony in America.

And now civil rights for gays and lesbians has been in the spotlight the last few years.  And there is war in Iraq again and Syria and threats in Ukraine and a new powerful entity called the Islamic State. And the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is a time bomb. And there is an Ebola virus that has brought great fear into the hearts of many.

And there is even more Corporate domination than ever before. Yet there is a sense felt by most tuned-in people that we are on the cusp of enormous change that will affect all of our lives.

So yes many are fearful and want the a dam to be built to hold back the waves of change. And the recent vote, as back when Nixon was elected, reflects that attitude.

Keep in mind, however, that not many years after that election in 1868, the war was ended and Nixon was impeached, and a whole new culture was born.

And now the great wave is here again  to help us to continue in our evolution.

That evolution was put on hold after the ’60s and 70s as we needed more grounding and also to integrate new electronic advances that would be aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

There has since been a conservative revolution led by Ronald Reagan that brought some needed pull-back and grounding to our consciousness and lives.  And then there was a most important internet and computer revolution that has changed all of our lives in a huge way.

And America has since become an Empire and Superpower, with the Military-Industrial complex that worried President Eisenhower more dominant than ever before.

Counter to that are people all over the world wanting freedom from Corporate and Military controls on their lives, wanting freedom from Governmental controls on their lives.

And much of the changes in the world this year since the Cardinal Grand Cross (which included Uranus and Pluto) is meant to begin to break the chains and bring us to new personal and collective chapters of our lives- on the road to the Age of Aquarius.

And now this week we begin to finish up Autumn Eclipse Season 2014,  a season that is meant to help us end that old chapter of our lives and embrace more the new phase of our lives.

But now as we have moved through a potent Taurus/Scorpio Full Moon from this last week, we are largely facing endings and feeling sadness for days gone by.  It is hard sometimes to let go of the past, even when we know it is time.

We install life-support systems in our minds and hearts, and hold on for dear life.   Death of the old can bring up great fear in us, and we can go through the stages of dying in our minds, like denial and rage and trying to make a deal with God to change the inevitable.

This coming week brings a big turning point in our transformational journey this year. The eclipses from Autumn Eclipse season have passed, and Mercury is back direct again.

That last eclipse, a Solar Eclipse New Moon from October 23, began a lunar cycle that came to climax this past week with the Full Moon. Now this week begins a waning path through the last half of that lunar cycle.  And then we move fast forward at the New Moon in Sagittarius on November 22.

So this week, as the lunar cycle begins the fading half of its journey, we encounter an important set of aspects:  Mars this week conjuncts Pluto on November 10, and squares Uranus on November 12, effectively triggering the Uranus/Pluto square.

Then on November 13 Mars will trigger the exact point of the exact Cardinal Grand Cross from mid April of this year.

This in an important turning point week globally and personally, as we will be prompted to accept the reality of our lives now and to move on. Old issues will come back so we can finish what we started.

Globally the Ferguson racial issue may come to a head again as the Grand Jury there decides if the policeman who killed the young man will be indicted. The meetings between Iran and the Powers that Be of the world concerning Iran’s nuclear programs are coming to an end, and decisions will be made on how to resolve the standoff- or not resolve it. Other Middle East conflicts will be in the spotlight again, and already the Ukraine/Russian conflict has come back again as there are claims Russia has invaded Ukraine once more.

Personally and globally, any issues that have not been resolved or completed, are likely to come back up in our consciousness and lives again.

Do you stay on the path you have previously chosen or not? Can you truly go back? For most this turning point will help them to move on and to get off any fences of indecision they have been sitting on. It is time to complete what was started and to know more completely what direction to move in.

One thing to know for sure, you are right where you need to be now. All has happened for a reason and there is no need to blame your self or others for what has happened. It has been time to end old chapters and seasons and begin new ones, no matter who has done what. “Coulda, woulda, shoulda” ruminations do not matter except to help you to learn from your mistakes for the future.

We are moving into an Age of Aquarius, and that is a big new season in our future. The new chapter this year is to move us one step closer to that reality. And keep in mind that those who voted last week to hold the line on such powerful change reflect a very human desire to feel safe.

See you next week,

Leo
