End of Eclipse Season, Autumn Equinox, and Astrology Forecast September 17-23

This week we come to the end of Eclipse Season, which has been a most powerful time of shifting life tides,  taking us faster forward through a New Life Chapter that is closer than ever to the Age of Aquarius.

Now that the Eclipse Season, which included Mercury Retrograde, is ending at the New Moon in Virgo this week; we are able to gain some perspective and insight into what happened and what may come next.

Many of us have been taken to important turning points in our lives, perhaps even requiring crossroads decisions.

For awhile now we may need to get our bearings after the intensity of the passing Eclipse Season, and the Virgo energies now will help us to analyze what has happened, to bring order to our lives, and to simplify what has been a rather complicated time period.

This is not a time to push forward, instead it is a time to fix up, repair, heal, clean up, and figure out.

That is because there is a New Moon in Virgo on September 19/20- actually at 1:30 AM EDT on the 20th. Mercury and Mars will already be in Virgo at that time, and Venus will have just arrived there too.

Virgo energy gives us greater ability to discern and be discriminating, to skeptically question, to be critical- hopefully in a constructive way.

So you will have the ability to take apart and view more closely the details of what is happening in your life.  Be careful, however, not to let healthy questioning turn into negativity, unfair criticism, and cynicism.  And be careful not to take yourself apart critically.

Virgo can be very perfectionistic and has a tendency to see life’s glass as half empty not half full.

In examining the world after the important events of Eclipse Season, we will have the ability to examine and find order, but must be careful not to be too negative, worrying, or fearful in the process.

We had extreme weather conditions and natural disasters, with an 8.1 Earthquake in Mexico, two very powerful hurricanes to hit the USA, as well as western USA wildfires that were more out of control than usual.

Culture wars picked up speed, starting in Charlottesville with KKK and neo Nazis instigating hatreds and violence.

The Middle East showed signs of change as Islamic State was wiped out of many locales it controlled, though it did perpetrate terrorist attacks at the same time. Syria is apparently more settled now, but  at the same time Israel and Iran are showing themselves closer to confrontation, with Hezbollah and Russia involved also.

But most ominously North Korea has taken center stage in our world with missile and bomb tests that have shaken the USA and much of the world.

Now it has become time to make decision on what can be done in that situation.

Of course many of us know weapons of mass destruction need to be mass destructed for the health of our planet.

But given the current situation, the wise option is to sit down with them, recognize their nuclear power,  and work out a solution similar to what was done with Russia during the Cold War.

The other option, a military one, will almost for sure touch off a World War, and begin to destroy the current economy.

There is no more sitting on the fence of sanction implementations for North Korea.

We are moving into a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius. In that Age there is equality among cultures, countries, and ways of living.   There is a multipolar power sharing and resource sharing world building.

Already China and Russia are determined to changing the current economy from one led by the American dollar and America.

Obama’s presidency began the process of leveling the world’s playing field and honoring the differences in people. He did as much as he could do considering the power of the Deep State’s Military Industrial Complex.

Now Trump challenges that global way of connecting us all.  He represents America keeping power over the world as a Superpower.

On a deeper level those days are done.  Now let’s hope the awakening to that fact happens without war and complete economic downfall.

We must collectively choose from our Higher Selves, not our ego selves, or as Sun in Aquarius Abraham Lincoln suggested- let our Better Angels lead the way.

Is our country and world sufficiently awakened to our Higher Self, the one aligned with the Age of Aquarius?

If not, and we will know soon, we will face our collective shadows in war and severe economic downturn.

As we each align with the energies of the Universe and our Higher Selves now, we need to then surrender our ego control and let this all play out as it will.

We can do our part by being in our Higher Self’s connection with Love and Truth.  And we can spread that wonderful energy to others we connect with.

And of course our letting go of the old programming from family and society,  helps everyone else to do so also- as a new trail is being blazed for everyone who awakens.

We also choose in this new consciousness to find balance and equality of male and female, yin and yang, dark and light, as true Nature requires.

 And that balance can be found at the Autumn Equinox on September 22 at 4:02 PM.

Autumn Equinox as always begins Sun in Libra time of year.

Autumn Equinox brings a perfect balance of light and dark minutes of the day, which is a signal for all opposites to join in equal balance.

After the moment of perfect balance, dark minutes of the day begin to increase, finding their optimum at Winter Solstice.

Libra time of year is a time to enjoy beauty and balance, symmetry and equality.  There is more emphasis on relationships and love.

Libra is also about the scales of justice, and knowing what is fair and just.  Libra can see both sides of an issue, which makes them great mediators but often as a result indecisive.

Libra is a sign of social graces, which can often preclude passion and primal desires and natural instincts.

Jupiter has been in Libra this past year, so we have been expanding our desires to make relationship, and to find equal balance and moderation in our consciousness and ways of living.

In a few weeks, however, expansive Jupiter will shift into Scorpio for a year.  Starting on October 10, we thus will begin to expand our desire nature, our sexual needs, and most importantly find what gives us passion in our life.

Scorpio also, in the process of reactivating our more primal instincts, may take out of slumber our repressed or suppressed lower emotions.

Rage, jealousy, envy, contempt, and just general meanness are the worst potential expressions of Scorpio.

Suppressed or repressed earlier traumatic events and wounding will tend to come to the surface where we can from our souls,  relive and at the same time release some of those old traumas.

As Jupiter goes into Scorpio, we will get more clear instinctually on what direction to take.  We will know from our passions what we want to do next.

In the world, events are more likely to be ignited after Jupiter goes into Scorpio, events that can be referred back to the Eclipse season we just passed through.

But for now gather yourself, investigate what needs to be investigated, fix, heal, repair, simplify and find order (Virgo).  And then also find the right balance, be more kind, focus on relationships and relating, look for love and beauty in everything (Libra).

Till next week,

Leo

Venus Direct and Astrology Forecast September 6-12

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 5, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The winds and tides of our consciousness and lives begin to shift this week.   These shifts will morph into a huge portal of change and transformation for later September and beyond.

The first winds will bring Venus going back Direct on Sunday September 6 at 4:29 AM EDT.  Venus has been Retrograde since July 25, and many relationship lives have gone through much turmoil and upheaval since then.

While Mercury is Retrograde we cannot trust our minds to operate as they usually do, and when Venus is Retrograde we cannot trust our hearts to operate as they usually do.

That is why it is advised during Venus Retrograde to not jump to any relationship conclusions as normal heart to heart communication is “tainted” by Venus Retrograde.  And the usual insight our hearts give us is clouded by Venus Retrograde.

Venus Retrograde is needed because our heart and relationship lives often get stale or off course, and it becomes imperative that there is a shakeup to get us to wake up.

But as we wake up more fully as Venus goes Direct now, we may still be somewhat foggy.  So we wait for Venus to have been direct for awhile before we begin to see into our hearts more clearly again.  And it usually takes another few weeks before all is back into some kind of order again.  Venus actually goes full circle on October 8, when it goes back to exactly where it started its retrograde journey.  That does not mean you necessarily need to wait that long to get heart clarity and to move you relationships forward, but full completion of the Venus cycle will not completed till then.

So feel the shift on September 6, but be careful to wait for the dust to clear from your storm traumatized heart before you are fully certain of anything.

And as we slowly settle back into our normal heart rhythms again, we will be also experiencing the downward movement of the last quarter of the lunar cycle, a cycle which began at the New Moon in Leo on August 15.

It is time this week to come down into a more humble place (especially so as we are in Sun in Virgo time).  From that more simple and grounded place, we begin to develop more order and to make more sense of what our recent soul’s journey has been about.

What relationship lessons have we been learning?  What is our heart trying to tell us?   What is the realistic state of our relationship?  What needs to be released from our heart’s past?  Who has really cared for you?  Who has really hardly seen you at all?

Now this week, no matter what the lessons or insight have been, it is time to begin to move forward, to leave the nightmare, to shake off the hurt, and to make strong intention to change the unhealthy relationship patterns and to attract more resonant people into your life.

As Venus slowly moves your heart issues forward this week, and as the Moon goes darker everyday into your soul’s quiet recesses; you are preparing for the first eclipse this Eclipse Season.

That will happen on September 12/13. It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo at 2:41 AM EDT on the 13th.

A big shift bringing big changes will be ignited at that Solar Eclipse. A portal of new transformational energies will begin to crack open then.

As it is a Virgo Solar Eclipse New Moon, the Universe will be bringing us energies which will help us to be more real,  more humble and of service to others.  We will desire to find more order to our lives and our own minds.

Remember that a Solar Eclipse is a New Moon on steroids.  So as you are energetically pushed to move forward, be careful of the downsides of Virgo.  Be careful not to get into obsessions or overly critical opinions, especially of yourself.   Also watch out to not be so materially and physically oriented as to lose the flow of soul inside you.

In the greater world, major events are getting ready to unfold.  World dominoes will begin to fall, affecting one place after another.

The world economic structure is beginning to come undone and will continue to do so. It is possible that life support systems will delay the inevitable for a while longer, but not much longer.

Boundaries are being breached as can be seen in an influx of refugees into Europe and elsewhere. The wars in Iraq and Syria and Afghanistan have made for more homeless people trying to find a safe place to live.

Our whole world is in the process of being transformed now, with power structures changing too and soon currency issues will change too as there will be strong attempts to shift away from the dollar.

China, India, Brazil, Iran, and Russia are empowering themselves while America wastes its time listening to and giving so much attention to Donald Trump.

The Middle East is on the verge of major war now as the Iran nuclear deal is galvanizing the positions of so many countries, especially Israel.

Israel has a Mars Return on September 22, 5 days before the powerful Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on September 27.  Watch for what Israel does around that time.

After that second eclipse, much will be energized and opened up as the transformational portal will be more fully activated. Energies of truth and love will be bursting at the seams to break through into our minds and hearts and world.

Fear and hatred and cynicism will be blocks in the system that will collide with the new streams of love and truth. Let them go.

Old traumas which breed lack of trust and lack of faith and low self esteem will be bursting open to be better understood and healed.  That healing will open our hearts and minds to the love and truth wanting to enter our consciousness.

Use this coming week, before the first eclipse on September 12/13, to find some resolution and clarity, some insight and direction, some inner peace.

Put into order what needs to be ordered, and most importantly be as humble and down to Earth as possible.

What is inflated will be deflated now, so we can do what is needed to heal our ourselves, our Earth and its creatures, and our human family.

“It is not about me” is a good mantra to put on your refrigerator and in your meditations now.   

Being with what that means- in your deeper soul now- will provide you with some foundation of strength for the storms ahead.

Till next week,

Leo

Wesak Full Moon in Scorpio and Astrology Forecast May 11-17

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 10, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Powerful April, with its very important and intense planetary movements, is in our rear view mirror now.  For many it has been replaced by a kind of let down, feeling perhaps deflated after all the excitement.

Though the Cardinal Grand Cross is still in effect,  the strong energetic buzz has left, the center of the storm has passed.

Many are still trying to make sense of what happened in their lives the last couple of months, trying to gain clarity and find direction.

Keep in mind that Mars is still retrograde.  Focused, active, forward movement is still limited.  Mars goes back Direct on May 19. It has been retrograde since March 1.

So whatever was shaken up in your life in March/April is still settling in, and there is still time for you to ponder, reflect, and make sense of your life.

Mars retrograde suggests you may still not know what you truly want, where you want to go with your life.  And since Mars is in Libra, a sign that tends to weigh both sides of an issue, that adds to the potential indecision.

And Mars will stay in Libra until July 25, which means that even after Mars goes back Direct on May 19, and even after Mars triggers the Grand Cross in mid June, you may still be hanging back from total immersion in the new chapter of your life.

That does not mean you will need to wait that long to begin to see some light at the end of your personal tunnels.   Yet since Mars will be in Libra till July 25, and since Mercury will be retrograde from June 6-  July 1; it is best to not put too much pressure on your self to have it all together and to know exactly what needs to be done and where your life is going.

In the greater world, much is shifting at a very deep level. The United States’ natal Sun/Saturn square was activated off by the Grand Cross, and that same spot in the zodiac will be triggered again by the eclipses in the Autumn 2014 and Spring 2015.   And the Uranus/Pluto square will be joined by other planets again to also trigger that same spot in the zodiac that holds the USA Sun/Saturn square.

The balance of power is shifting in the world.   The eastern half of our globe contains cultures and countries that have experimented with more socialistic ideals of spreading the wealth with more equanimity.   And Pope Francis has also recently spoken out about creating a world that is financially more fair for all of us.

I do not believe we will build a totally socialistic world, but I do believe that as our world becomes more integrated and whole, we will find ways to bridge eastern and western values.

Some capitalism helps to motivate people to do their best with life accomplishments.  And some socialism helps to keep controls over desires for greed and power, and will take care of more people in the world.

After all the dust from coming conflicts settles, we will have the best of both worlds.  We will have more of a sense of unity, empathy and knowing we are all one family on the Earth, while at the same time honoring the authentic individuality of each member, each culture, each spiritual and sexual orientation, each individual way of life.

We will therefore have developed an Age of Aquarius, one of Diversity in Unity.  I believe the 2020’s will show us the mold has formed for this New Age.

There will still be much  to work out after that, but the Sun will have come up, so to speak, for this New World and Paradigm.

To get there,  there can be no more Empires running the world. Rome was the first at the beginning of the Pisces Age that is coming to a close.   And the Soviet Union and America are the last.

Those two recent empires represent on deeper levels an energetic desire to one day merge individualism with collectivism.

That day will come relatively soon, but not before a huge primal conflict between cultures blows up and brings an eventual catharsis and humbling.  A mass show of extraterrestrial visitation may also play a huge part in the transformation.

Then we will acknowledge our common humanity and build a new world as a result.

I suspect that the next 12-18 months will bring the most profound and most intense phase of the shift and transition into this new paradigm and age. The world will change is ways we have not seen during our lifetimes so far.

And each of our individual lives is shifting in alignment with this greater shift.  The deepest work for each of us is to learn to accept and honor our own and others’ distinct and authentic individuality, while at the same time learning more empathy and compassion for ourselves and one another.

And in the process we are learning we are all one family on our sacred Earth, and living in a meaningful Universe, with all the dots connected, and governed by universal laws like Love and Truth.

To get there in our consciousness, each of us needs to shed the blankets of  programming we have received from our families and cultures that keep us attached to dying values from a dying age.

This coming week May 11- May 17 is highlighted by increased intensity mid week from a Scorpio Full Moon and Venus in Aries activating the Grand Cross.

The Full Moon in Taurus/Scorpio is on May 14, 2014 at 3:16 PM EDT.  It is commonly called the Wesak Full Moon every year and many celebrate the Buddha’s birth then.

Finding calm and centeredness while facing life’s difficulties or intensities is a theme for this Full Moon.

And there should be greater intensity mid week with that Full Moon, but also from Venus triggering the 13 degrees of Cardinal signs from the exact Grand Cross of April 20-23.

Issues may be stirred up again, or at least there may be a feeling of climax or some signs of resolution from recent shifts and changes. Resist the energetic draw for power struggles or “tugs-of war” this week, and instead find a way to let your inner spiritual observer keep the calm.

See you next week,

Leo
