Power of Eclipse Transformation and Astrology Forecast January 6-12

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 5, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

On Saturday January 5 at 8:28 PM EST we experience the 1st of 2 important eclipses this month.  It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.  Both Saturn and Pluto are in conjunction with this eclipse, bringing an even more powerful energetic intensity to the event.

Though the energies will be at their greatest intensity on the 5th and the 6th, important events may not flow for days, weeks, and even months. But more likely many events will happen the over the next few weeks.

What is important to observe are the events that have been swirling in our lives since early December at the New Moon in Sagittarius, which opened up Eclipse Season Winter 2018/19.

In your personal life since early December: what have you been experiencing or feeling or watching? What new challenges have appeared?  What opportunities have been offered to you? What fears have leaked into your psyche? What old patterns have you seen try to come back into your life, relationships, and/or consciousness?

What new ideas have you recently received? What important decisions need to soon be made? And most importantly at the Capricorn New Moon,  what are you getting motivated to build or rebuild, restructure.  What new projects do you plan to start or bring more fully forward?  What do you want to manifest or accomplish?

And what steps are necessary to help you move toward your goals. What kind of discipline do you need to get where you want to go, or do what you want to do in fulfilling your purpose?

This Solar Eclipse in Capricorn, with grave Saturn and lord of the underworld Pluto attached, is powerful in its “intention” to destroy whatever is ready and needs to be extricated from your consciousness and life.

You cannot run away from time marching on in the “real” world; and we do need to be a part of that real world so we can make the contributions necessary to assist in our collective human voyage into a New Paradigm and Age.

Hard decisions need to be made soon, new directions soon need to be known.

January hosts another eclipse on the 20th/21st of the month: a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo.  

So expect this eclipse month to shake things up, but at the same time show us what is real and substantive and needed.  Superficial and trite will not fare well most of this month.

Breakthroughs and/or breakdowns are more likely than usual now at the eclipses.  We are deeply transforming our consciousness, our lives, and our country and world.

Believing and having faith in the Universe and Universal cycles and symbols helps us better navigate the changes and transformation now upon us.

Stop searching for normal to come back. The old normal is gone now, and a new normal has not shown herself fully yet.

To add to the power of the current eclipse, Uranus changes direction from retrograde to direct on January 6, the day after the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn.

Planets in the process of slowing down to change directions push their energy and meaning into our consciousness and life.

Uranus is about “breaking out of boxes”, breaking chains of control in order to be more liberated. It is strong winds of change, individuality and or weirdness, being contrary, being different, being about social change, community, rebellion and revolution.

As Uranus going Direct closely follows the Solar Eclipse, we are on the precipice of important, needed change and transformation. 

The Solar Eclipse in Capricorn is of course a new moon, which means new beginnings. Yet being in Capricorn that suggests the change is slow and deliberative.  Saturn as part of the New Moon Eclipse’s signature suggests what is happening cannot be escaped or evaded. 

Pluto as part of the signature suggests deep inner exploration. But it also suggests deep purging and releasing, and a destruction of old structures that have lost heart, spirit and soul.  Capricorn, Saturn and Pluto do not move things fast forward.

But Uranus does.  Uranus is about change, sometimes drastic and sometimes quite surprising change. 

Also now Mars is in fiery early Aries, its favorite sign;  so there is energy for moving forward, taking action, making new starts, and boldly having the courage to be true to oneself and what one believes.

And with Jupiter in its favorite sign- fiery Sagittarius, there is a growing need for having more faith, bringing back joy and inspiration, and taking new adventures.

This week began  a new lunar cycle at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn which reaches “climax” at the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo, and ends at the New Moon in Aquarius on February 4.  That Aquarius New Moon also effectively ends this Eclipse Season.

So in the greater world one can expect some destructive energy in the Capricorn New Moon Solar Eclipse, which is best used to gain deeper insight,  facing inner demons, and releasing what no longer has anymore life and spirit.

At the same time Uranus brings strong winds of change, and a need to break away from what or whom keeps us captive.

So all in all this week should bring us further decay and destruction of the old paradigm.

But Uranus, and in a lesser way, Mars and Jupiter; bring us people wanting to break away and be free of controlling and dominating people.

The government shutdown likely ends close to the Solar Eclipse and Uranus changing winds.

The stock market, after a short break last week, likely continues in its downward spiral.

War drums in Israel and the Middle East sound more aggressively.  China and North Korea get more fed up with Trump and by association the USA.

And the more and more apparent Russian collusion with the Trump family will likely show us a likely road to impeachment before the end of this lunar cycle.

Much will be coming down soon in our world, as we transform into a Diversity within Unity Age of Aquarius.

We need a new world economy that is fair to all.  We need to break down the old Military systems of this world and all their Weapons of Mass Destruction. We will see the Military Industrial Complex drastically transform over the next few years.

Time for each of us to decide in a real and grounded way: Would we be better off letting our Earth and World stay where it is, even with the corruption, inequality, power abuse, privilege to the few, disconnections from each other and from the love, truth and knowledge that all is connected and meaningful in this world.

Or do we rather choose a powerful world transformation that could get very ugly and destructive; yet at the same time deliver us into an Age of Aquarius that keeps our human family together in unity with the Earth, each other, and with all life in our Universe.

Much deep transformational work will benefit from the planetary movements this week.   As you release the living dead components of your life now, positive attitudes and beneficial changes will erupt in your consciousness and life.

The power of change accelerates this week, both inner and outer change.  Let go and let life take you to your higher destiny.

Till next week,

Leo

Moving Toward Solar Eclipse New Moon and Astrology Forecast December 23-January 5

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 22, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, as we pass through the day of Winter Solstice, we now face Winter Season.  For my “down-under” readers, I wish you well as you have just entered your Summer Season.

All of us are now into a new Eclipse Season, with the first of two eclipses showing on January 5/6.  It is Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.

And we better put on our seat belts, because the Eclipse Season roller-coaster  is already moving intensely.

  1. The USA is now experiencing a government shutdown over funding for a border wall with Mexico.  Trump is saying he will do most anything to get his wall financed. Hence the partial Government shutdown.
  2. The stock market is rapidly moving downward, something readers of Perspectives  from the Sky have known was coming.
  3. The proof needed for moving toward impeachment is getting stronger from the Mueller investigation. And Democrats taking over Congress in 2019 are likely to move toward impeachment proceedings.
  4. North Korea made a statement this week that strongly stated they will not unilaterally take down their nuclear program. That was a big shift in USA/Korea affairs. Other hot spots like Israel and the Middle East are also heating up.
  5. Trump stated pretty firmly this past week that he is going to withdraw the USA military from Syria, and likely also from Afghanistan.

Yes Trump is a narcissistic, vindictive, child much of the time.  But come on, how can we be against these troop withdrawals?  We should never have invaded or bombed Syria (nor should we any other country that has not attacked us first).   So why are so many “progressives” against Trump’s decision on Syria?

If it is just because you do not like Trump, that is not a good reason to oppose this Syria move is it? Yes I do realize this decision may be largely due to Trump’s bromance with Putin and collusion with Russia, who is a strong ally with Syria.  But nevertheless, we are taking troops out of harm’s way and getting out of the business of being in a country we were not invited into.

This all seems like a part of the movement into a Diversity within Unity new world paradigm, where there are no more superpower countries or Empires.  There are instead countries equal in value to one another, working in community with one another, and yet respecting one another to find their own identity with self determination as an individualized culture.

I have been witnessing much growth and consciousness expansion in many people since this Eclipse Season began.  There is a stronger commitment to stay on their soul path.

And I have seen much releasing of old tapes and stories that have previously been ingrained in minds and hearts.

We are each a microcosm of what is going on in the Universe, world and country.  We are each transforming and evolving so we can meet the new energies and adapt to what is needed in this new world, so we can each fulfill our purpose and destiny this time around.

Keep in mind as this Eclipse Season progresses that what we are seeing in the world is not merely problems to be solved according to whatever agenda or “team” we identify with.

We are truly in transition between ages, and each of us is finding our own way through it, and our place within it.

Our challenges come to us so we can transform and evolve, and while doing so fulfill a purpose within the greater community.

I do not mean this purpose needs to be something “important” or grandiose. To some extent I simply mean finding one’s authentic Self and expressing it.  You may work in a grocery store and have evolved into someone who brings kindness, warmth, hope, or joy to people who come in shopping.

Or you may be a parent who raises their children with love and loving guidance.

These times of transformation, like now during an Eclipse Season, can help you to release old traumas, wounds, and stories that have limited your ability to find youurself and fulfill your purpose.

This week, we move into the second and waning half of the current lunar cycle. That is so because a Cancer Full Moon happened on December 22.

Now we go more yin-ward in anticipation of our first eclipse on January 5.  So we have turned the corner, next stop the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn.

So this holiday week should be a relatively peaceful one this year.  The caveat is that Eclipse Season is getting closer to the first actual eclipse on January 5.

So intensity may increase as a result.

I will driving from Maine to Sedona Arizona starting on Thursday December 27, so will not be writing next week’s Perspectives.  I will pick up again on the day of the actual first eclipse January 5.

That eclipse is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn at 8:28 PM EST.  The next day wake-up call Uranus will be going Direct. Its chain-breaking, liberating, transforming energy will thus be pretty strong during the days surrounding the eclipse.

When Uranus goes Direct, all planets will be Direct, suggesting time to move forward on all cylinders.

And that Capricorn Solar Eclipse New Moon will be quite important and strong as both Pluto and Saturn will be conjunct it.

Pluto is the Guardian of the Underworld and Saturn rules gravity.  So the usually rather low key and even boring Capricorn New Moon will instead be rather powerful.

It will be great for endings; transforming old structures into new ones; releasing old stories and beliefs; making commitments; making firm resolutions; tearing down walls of over-protection; making and organizing plans; having discipline to do what you need to do; setting goals you will accomplish; manifesting what has previously only been dreams or ideas.

There is a destructive energy that comes from Pluto/Saturn connections, so stay alert to what in your life may need to die.

This Capricorn Solar Eclipse is rather closely opposing the USA natal Sun in Cancer and square its Saturn in Libra.

The issues that came from events this last week concerning Syria and the Middle East, the stock market and economy, impeachment, North Korea, and government shutdown over a border wall will intensify.

Breakdowns of old ways and breakthroughs into new ways is a theme for this Eclipse Season.  Trust the process, and resist falling into crippling fear or negativity.  Have a mantra like “all is happening for a higher meaning, all is part of a needed transformation into a healthier and more satisfying life.”

On New Year’s Eve. still before the actual Solar Eclipse, Mars leaves tentative Pisces for action oriented Aries where it will stay until February 14.

This Mars in fiery Aries combined with Jupiter in fiery Sagittarius, can provide the motivation, stimulation, inspiration, and confidence to move forward in a positive way.

I will put out a video about this Eclipse Season within a day or 2. Stay tuned.

New Year 2018 and Astrology Forecast December 31- January 6

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 30, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we transition from 2017 into 2018. We begin the year with a bang as there is a Full Moon on January 1 and Uranus goes Direct on the 2nd.   And as Uranus goes Direct, there is the relatively rare occurrence of all planets in Direct motion.

Yes 2017 is ending. And what a year 2017 was for the United States and world.

It was the first year of the new Trump administration in the USA.  This of course created intense ripples all across the globe, as the USA has a great influence in the world.

The tone being set by Trump is replicated in other parts of the world, as nationalism is creating a serious counter to a growing globalism.

There is a separation, one nation from another, that is an outgrowth of nationalism

In the 1930’s nationalism created conditions that led to severe world conflicts, that led to World War II.

And now you can see again animosity building in nations who are defining their enemy lists.

Iran, North Korea, and Muslims in general are developing in the cross-hairs of the Trump USA world viewpoint.

Israel has become a staunch ally of the Trump administration, especially so as Trump declared Jerusalem the exclusive capital of Israel.

That declaration automatically erased the USA as a mediator between Israel and Palestine.  It also automatically pushed Iran and much of the Muslim world into serious opposition to the USA and Israel.

Battle lines are being drawn as the USA under Trump is wanting to eliminate regimes they cannot have influence over within their idea of world order.

Rome, so to speak, wants more power, and Caligula (Trump) desires greater dominance in the world.

You and I are already being programmed to see Iran and North Korea as enemies with monsters as their leaders (remember Iraq/Saddam and Libya/Gaddafi?).  We are being groomed to be blindly patriotic prior to the coming confrontations.

2018 intensity begins early this year.

Winter 2018 Eclipse Season begins on January 15 at the Capricorn New Moon, to be followed by  two eclipses: A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo on January 31 and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.

These eclipses are directly opposite the signs and degrees of the eclipses last August, and as such will counter those energies as well as provide a continuance of what happened during that time.

North Korea, Syria, Charlottesville were in the world spotlight then. Trump’s growing influence over world affairs was becoming more and more obvious.

And this new Eclipse Season, which will end in early March, will not only bring back the issues of North Korea, the Middle East, and culture wars in the USA; it will also show us some strong backlash against the Trump administration.

Will that mean impeachment proceedings begin or begin to look more immanent?  I will look more closely at all this in a 2018 Forecast Video and a 2018 Podcast, which will hopefully begin a series of “radio shows” this new year.

2018 will show the Trump agenda growing, while at the same time there is a growing anti-Trump movement.

And many people will focus their energies on their own consciousness and belief systems, while at the same time wanting to co-create the New World and Age.

Those people will see truth more deeply beyond the programming, and will experience the connections by hooking into the powerful frequencies of Love that will be growing in our energy fields and souls. Magic, meaning, synchronicity, and the Universe’s signs and symbols will be available to those who are awakening beyond the brick walls of the old paradigm.

From that place new communities are building,  communities devoted to Age of Aquarius values.  Fear and hatred do not rule that new age. Truth and Love do.

So this week, the first week of 2018 begins with a Full Moon in Capricorn/Cancer at 9:25 PM EST on New Year’s Day, combined with the energies of Uranus which changes to Direct motion on January 2. And of course all planets Direct in motion.

So there will be feelings of new beginnings, greater than the usual feeling of new year beginnings.

But I do not mean New Year alcohol inspired mania. I mean feelings of breaking out and breaking through, of liberation from what holds you back.  And for many this means true desires to be free of the old ways, old patterns, stuck lives, and old paradigm.

Use this Full Moon and especially Uranus to see outside the boxes, and to see the changes you can make this year.

This New Year’s Day Full Moon has the Sun in Capricorn opposite the Moon in Cancer.

So your accomplishment world outlook and your personal world in-look will be counter to one another.  Can you now balance your work and career with family and home?  Which one needs more of your attention now?

The one that needs more attention will create events to force you to focus on it.  But remember that Uranus is strong now too, so you can go outside the usual boxes in order to find new ways to be.

You do not need to be victim to the  old family patterns or old inner stuck thinking  or feeling.

And you can now begin to liberate your self from work or career that keeps you imprisoned in old ways. Start making plans for how you will lead a life more attuned to your authentic self and a more meaningful life.

Since this is Sun in Capricorn time of year, making a plan to make the needed changes is a good way to proceed.

Later this week, Mars in Scorpio will make conjunction with Jupiter in Scorpio.  Though exact next Saturday January 6, you may experience that very intense energy a few days  before and after the actual conjunction.

There is much passion in this conjunction, and of course passion can be used positively and negatively.  If you find passion for living your life, that is positive; but some will instead get into big eruptions of emotion.

And even then perhaps that is needed to express what you have been holding in, which will hopefully clear the air between people.  Or perhaps your passion will help you to empower your self in ways that are necessary to your growth and evolution.

And in the world, events with conflict eruptions become more likely.

In your personal life and with your emotions,  stay aware of this volatile energy below the surface.   You may then be more able to sidestep ugly blowups that will only be destructive.

So this first week of 2018 will initiate us into the new year.  If you stay aligned with your Higher Self leading your way, that will set the tone for this new year.

And yes Mercury is firmly direct now, giving us more potential clarity and less breakdowns of machinery and technology.

And with all planets now Direct, there is less need to reflect and ponder, or to make excuse for staying stuck.

till next week

Leo

Sacred Turning Point and Astrology Forecast December 25- December 31.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 24, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we move through a sacred Judeo/Christian time period, we are in the darkening last quarter of the lunar cycle- until Thursday December 29.  

Last week we experienced the darkest time of the solar cycle- leading up to the Winter Solstice.

This will feel like a very sad and soulful time for many people.

2016 is coming to an end, and the Presidency of Barack Obama is soon to end also.

In many ways President Obama brought us closer to an Age of Aquarius. Though the Miltary/Industrial Complex still rules, his policies brought us “friendlier” relationships with Cuba, Iran, the Muslim world and Palestinians.

He also was the first President of color and he helped to move us towardgreater inclusiveness with the LGBT community by leading the way toward cultural acceptance of gay marriage and transgender people.

Now, if looking at life from a global outer world perspective, we will in many ways seem to be moving backwards in experiencing much of the old paradigm from a dying age.

The Trump administration and nationalistic movements in many western countries bring with it more separation and greater chances of world conflicts and war.

Though I strongly believe we are metaphorically taking 2 steps backward before taking many steps forward in a few years, it is understandable that many people are feeling greater fear and anger.

But even though the outer global world feels as if it is going backwards, those of us on a spiritual path will be challenged to grow and evolve.

How do we keep love in our hearts while the world is going crazy? How do we let go of hatred and fear when leaders in the outer world are bringing us policies that bring greater danger to our environment and Earth?

How can we keep our center when leaders in the new American administration are all very wealthy and militaristic?

How do we stop ourselves from being depressed when we witness greater misogyny and prejudice, while there is more world conflict and more separation between haves and have nots economically?

Christ, who is being celebrated by many now, gave us an example of having love, compassion, and faith in a world filled with hate, corruption, and injustice.

The beginning of the Pisces Age was begun around the birth of Christ with its fish symbols.  This birth happened just a few years after the births of Buddha and Lao Tse, and a few years before Mohammed, all signature figures of the Age of Pisces.

Though the messages of these spiritual masters was largely diluted and corrupted by churches in their names during the Pisces Age, it is incumbent on each us to resurrect and deeply own in our consciousness the essence of what each of these people represented.

The many faceted and mysterious great Goddess is an important part of the Age of Aquarius, and as she energetically joins with the spiritual masters of the Age of Pisces, we have our spiritual foundation for the Age of Aquarius.

But they are not above us in hierarchy in an Age of Aquarius.  They are us, integrated deeply in each of our hearts and souls.

And now that is our inner work: evolving spiritually in a toxic world, to be “in the world but not of the world”.

At the same time, we begin our outer work of planting seeds of change for the outer world. We will participate in protests, gatherings like the Million Woman March on the day after Inauguration Day for Donald Trump, and civil disobedience as was shown by Martin Luther King and Ghandhi.

We must each find our way to seeing the bigger picture and commiting to a New Age regardless of who is president or who is ruling the world.  Who do you believe runs this Universe? Is it Caesar of the material world or the energies of Love and Truth?

This week we experience the darkening Moon until December 29 at the New Moon in Capricorn at 1:53 AM EST.

That same day brings us the liberating, awakening energies of Uranus as it changes directions from Retrograde to Direct. Uranus, arguably more than any other planet, signifies change.

So there will be a feeling surrounding the 29th of new beginnings and big change.

The New Moon in Capricorn shows us the beginning of a greater sense of responsibility, loyalty, groundedness, and needs to accomplish.

The Sun is always in Capricorn on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day when many people make their resolutions. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn which rules Time.  Capricorn is also about plans, commitment, and discipline, which are a big part of resolutions.

Uranus changing directions often feels like radical change and revolution.

So this would then be a great time to make a commitment (Capricorn) to revolution and transformational change (Uranus).

I would also not be surprised by big world events around this time.

On New Years Eve, Mars will be conjunct Neptune.

Mars is action, force, and will.  Neptune as God of the Ocean is deep soul and feelings.  It is the inner spiritual world as ruling planet of Pisces.

It also rules alcohol and drugs.  So be very careful how much you use those to bring in the New Year 2017.

Neptune is also letting go, going with the flow and surrender.  So Mars’ force will be greatly diluted by Neptune.  So it is best not to force issues or agendas, and instead to be flexible and trusting of energies and realities beyond our controls.

till next week when we will look at the year ahead.

I will put out a YouTube video soon after the first. I also intend to host an ongoing streaming radio show soon also. More on that later.

If you are interested in your personal year ahead, write to me at soulus@aol.com for more info on astrological readings/consultations.

 

 

 

Waving Goodbye to 2015 and Astrology Forecast December 27-January 2

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 26, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Next week on January 2,  I will do a forecast for 2016,  including the Presidential primaries and election.

For this coming week, which includes the last week of 2015 and the first day of 2016, there is not much planetary action.

We will still feel the effects of the Cancer Full Moon the weekend of December 26/27.  Then we move through the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Sagittarius New Moon on December 11.

At the New Moon in Capricorn on January 9, that lunar cycle willl end as the new one begins.

But for this week the Moon’s light begins to slowly fade away as the year 2015 fades away too.

Interesingly, the rare occurence of all the planets being Direct is now in effect since Uranus went Direct on December 25.

We have a very short window of all Direct planets, as Mercury goes Retrograde on January 5 and Jupiter goes Retrograde on January 7.

We have a mere 11 days of all Direct planets.

So you can use this time to get really clear about your self and your life.  You can feel more confident in your ability to transform and change your self and your life in a positive manner.

This all bodes well for this transition time between years.

But we are also in the waning half of the lunar cycle, at the end of the year, and many taking time off from work.

So the slowdown precludes much action forward being taken, but with the Sun in Capricorn now, we can get really clear about what intentions and resolutions we want to make for the New Year 2016.

You can know more than usual for this time of year, as the planets are all direct,  what course is right for you and how you can get there.

Venus moves out of deeply instinctual Scorpio and into Sagittarius on Wednesday December 30. So your heart can help you to find more inspiration from others through conversation, books, movies, etc.

You can also begin (Venus stays in Sagittarius until January 23.) to expand your relationship efforts to repair and heal.

It should be somewhat easier, while Venus is in Sagittarius, to see the bigger picture of relationship, and to be motivated to make relationship improvements.

2014 and 2015 have been especially powerful transformational years.

Our world is going through great growing pains,  and most people find it difficult to see where we are all going.

It seems so apparent to me that the old conventional world is breaking apart, especially so as people seem tired of the old ways that are no longer working for them.

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders both represent a breaking down of old ways.  Trump has little respect for the American political system and little tolerance for, in his opinion, politically correct ways of being.  And Sanders wants to greatly transform the economic system into one more equitable for all peoples.

Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner is a potent symbol of old gender roles and identities being more blurred than ever. This phenomenon is happening all over America.  More and more people are questioning and experimenting with sexual orientations.

So called minorities in America will be the majority of peoples in 20-30 years, totally transforming our country.  Europe also is becoming more multicultural, and other countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia are beginning to open the doors for liberation for females.

Global Climate Change is being taken more seriously in our world which will change how we live our lives, build our homes and drive our vehicles.

The internet and computer revolution is putting out newer gadgets and electronic equipment that will further transform our lives.

The Middle East shows us great transformation of national, cultural, and religious paradigms- as Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, and Islamic State are shifting national identities and cultural realities.

China and Russia are flexing their national and cultural muscles greatly, and further threaten the old power structures and paradigm.

Though some of these changes may be extremely difficult to see in a positive light, they are all part of the deep and vast changes we are moving through as we transition between ages and paradigms.

Just as in personal transformation, sometimes one’s outlook during the transformational process is dark, foreboding, and painful.

As one wakes up to new ways of seeing and acting, and as one releases the old ways of being; one then moves toward more light at the end of the tunnel in the transformational process.

So do your best not to fret too much or to get too much into fear or cynicism.

Much of the ugly stuff we are seeing now is temporary, as we cleanse our human condition in preparation for greater healing and an Age of Aquarius.

I saw a documentary recently about Viking invasions of England 1300 years ago.  There were brutal and ruthless rapes, beheadings, stolen lands, and killings. There were no modern conveniences and little true freedom and individual choices.  The Christian Crusades were also quite filled with horror.

Civilization in many ways has improved greatly since then.  Actually, on the contrary, it is arguable that in many ways we have become too civilized, too emotionless, too immersed in personal mental and electronic bubbles.

We are now at a true turning point in human affairs.  And as such we are hopefully questioning most everything, so we keep that which is right for our new world, let go of that which is no longer aligned, and create our new world together.

Nothing can hold back the tides of change that have been moving through our world.  But we have choice as to the quality of that change as we re-imagine, re-think, and steer our hearts in new directions.

Till next week’s Forecast for 2016,

Leo

The Light of Hope and Astrology Forecast December 20-26

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on December 19, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move through the Winter Solstice followed by a Full Moon in Cancer.

The Winter Solstice is on December 21 at 11:41 PM EST.   At that time, like in every other year, the Sun simultaneously goes into Capricorn.

At the Winter Solstice we experience the most dark minutes of a day here in the Northern Hemisphere of planet Earth.

But it is a turning point, because beginning at the Winter Solstice there will be a growing amount of light every day until the Summer Solstice.

The Summer Solstice is exactly the opposite experience, light reaches its zenith, and then afterwards every day will have increasingly dark minutes until Winter Solstice.

So cultures have always seen that at the darkest day of the year, hope comes alive knowing the Spring Equinox is only a few months away.

Spring Equinox is when light catches up to dark in equality, but afterwards light is more supreme every day until Summer Solstice.

And stories of the birth of Christ are part of this time of hope for a better future.

Christ’s supposed birth date on December 25 is celebrated only a few days after the Solstice, but it is doubtful he was born then.  March is a more likely time for his birth.

But Christianity used the general time period of nature and pagan ritual of Winter Solstice to celebrate the return of light at the Christmas holiday.

Regardless of what you believe in this regard, the Winter Solstice is a great time to meditate or be a part of ceremony and ritual.

Nature is letting us know that we are entering Winter, with its colder and darker time period- yet we know the hope of spring is “in the air”.

Many people do get depressed on the days leading up to the Solstice  and sometimes even afterwards. The Holidays can be difficult for some.

But if you can let your self naturally feel the “down” energy leading up to the Solstice, you can then get connected to the shift to the beginnings of more light and “up” energy at the time of the Winter Solstice.

Remember that planetary movements and cycles are Nature speaking to our souls.  If we stay in tune with Nature we lead a more “organic” life.

Ironically,however, the Winter Solstice is the beginning of a month that has the Sun in Capricorn.

Capricorn does not honor nature so much,  and instead feels that we need boundaries, rules, and often strict guidelines to protect us from nature’s wildness.

Capricorn metaphorically builds dams to protect us from water out of control; builds special structures to protect us from earthquakes or hurricanes; and of course builds us homes to protect us from many of nature’s ways, like wild animals or extreme temperatures.

Capricorn’s “ruling” planet is Saturn.  Saturn is gravity, time, limits, obligations, rules, commandments, and successful achievements.

Arguably, no matter how much natural talent one has, one needs to have discipline, to organize and plan.  This is a Capricorn’s way of harnessing nature so it works for you, not out of control and then against your plans for achievement and success in the world.

To counter this time of Sun in Capricorn, on Christmas Day December 25 at 6:12 AM EST, the Moon will be in Cancer exactly opposite the Sun in Capricorn. That forms a Full Moon, as all full moons have the Sun exactly and directly opposite the Moon.

So now the controls, rules, obligations, discipline and focus on achievement represented by the Sun in Capricorn meets its match with the Moon in Cancer.

The Moon’s “favorite” sign is Cancer, as the Moon’s more gentle rays find comfort in the nurturance of Cancer.

Moon in Cancer represents soul and inner values. Moon in Cancer trusts nature and human feelingss even if those feelings break open into expressions without boundaries and rules.

Capricorn puts up strict boundaries for the sake of answering to the demands of the outer world with its limits and rules.

Cancer is open to anything that is organic and natural and cares more about the “inner child’s” needs than anything else.

It will put up with moods and emotional volatility and change, no matter what as it wants to support and protect the soul from outer demands or frustrations.

So Cancer wants to nurture and protect all that is vulnerable and innocent: children, elderly, disabled, etc.

Capricorn wants to protect also, but it wants to portect  against anything or anyone that would take it off the track of its orientation for achievement and its desire to build, organize and plan.

Capricorn is structure and form, and Cancer is the soul’s energy and feelings.

So at this Full Moon in Capricorn/ Cancer do your best to balance the more allowing and permissive side of you (Cancer) with the more strict and demanding side of yourself (Capricorn).

Too much Capricorn brings us a flat line world of rules and commandments without soul and feeling and empathy.

Too much Cancer is overly protective and pernissive with feelings and moods that are not controlled.

It is a good time at this Full Moon to balance your concentration on personal inner directed family matters (Cancer) with your more professional career and outer directed matters (Capricorn).

Interestingly this year there is Uranus changing directions from Retrograde to Direct on the day of the Full Moon.

This unusual occurrence may promise a more “outside the box” Christmas Day or a time of breaking away from old family patterns. or a feeling of rebellion or wanting to be different.

We are coming to the end of a very powerfully transformational year, in fact two years 2014 and 2015.

When we look back on these two years we will even more clearly see how important they have been.

Globally we have entered a whole new era.   And 2016 and 2017 will give us the fallout from the events of those two years.

America has really changed and transformed. It is adjusting to the new threats and to its growing role as a more equal member of the world community.

It is struggling to come back to its better principles and ideals instead of a higher priority on money and might.

There is a strong tide of change rolling in, and an equally strong energy to try to hold back the tide of that change.

The political arena is where much of this will play out as there is a presidential election late in 2016.

But there are many others now who know that the conventional political route is a dead end for positive change and evolution.

They go through their transformation and evolution in other ways.  Now with social media and internet connecting us to so much beyond the old ways, and with many others wanting to live a more simple and natural life- we have much to hang onto besides the corruption and flat line energies of the political, governmental, global corporate,and militaristic old world.

The next couple of weeks we will present to you a forecast for 2016.

Enjoy the solstice and holiday time this week as best you can.

Till next week,

Leo

Moving Toward the Light and Astrology Forecast December 21-27

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 20, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We experience an important turning point at the Winter Solstice on December 21 at 6:03 PM EST.   And that annual turning point toward more light has more importance than usual as there is a New Moon in Capricorn also on the 21st, at 8:36 PM EST.  

Adding to the importance of this year’s Winter Solstice day is the fact that the transformational planet of awakening, Uranus, will change directions and go Direct that same day- at 5:45 PM EST.

All of these events happen within three hours of one another.  So it will be an especially good time then to be present, to meditate or at least stay aware of this shift.

Last weekend an exact Uranus/Pluto square was experienced in a very profound and powerful way by many people.

There was much intensity and even turmoil for many then.  Emotions were brought up to the surface and expressed.   Truth was spoken and in some cases there was a real breakdown of old thinking or ways of being.

Then afterwards there were breakthroughs and awakenings for some, and for others a facing of some core truths that were difficult to handle.

Much of the intensity has lifted for many now, and there has been a clearing and a greater acceptance of what is real and true.

Now at the Winter Solstice, which will bring an end to the move toward darker days, we feel the turning toward more hope for the future.

But remember that the Winter Solstice brings the Sun into Capricorn, and not long after that the Moon joins the Sun in Capricorn to create a New Moon.

So there are new beginnings and movement forward, but Capricorn is not about immediate gratification or fast movement, and is instead about the long haul, discipline, planning, and a slow building toward one’s goals.

It is true that Uranus, which will also be prominent on the Winter Solstice, is more lightning like energetically, and hence brings a feeling that one has broken some chains, woken up, and is liberated.

Even if you are feeling that, keep aware that even though Uranus is bringing you a quick inspiration or idea or sense of direction, there will be much work to go through and the results are unknown.

It will be a very good time around the Winter Solstice to make intentions and yes even resolutions, but making things stick and truly manifest will take effort and commitment to the process.

These are very transformational times and often now your heart and soul may not agree with what you think is the correct or safest thing to do.

That issue will need to be worked out through time.  It is true that during times of great change as we are experiencing now (and will continue to experience for quite awhile longer) that one’s heart and soul need to lead the way. That is because our heart and soul are connected to the energies that are moving through our world and through us.

But we each need to work on the apparent contradiction between what the heart and soul feel they are driven toward and what will apparently keep our lives feeling safe and secure.

Perhaps you will need to make the drastic change your heart is opening up to, but it is also possible your heart has merely let you know you that you have been asleep and detached from your passions.

You may still be able to bring some heart back into your current situation, or at least find some balance between the seeming opposites.

The energies in Capricorn tell us we will likely need to trust time to bring us the answers at the right time.

Our human family is truly taking a collective ride into new territory together.   Though many will instead say that there is never anything new under the Sun, that history always repeats itself, and that “Groundhog Day” repeat performances is all we can ever expect; they are dead wrong as there is a New Age we are rapidly moving toward.

And the changes will accelerate, especially as we move through late Winter and Spring 2015.

Uranus will square Pluto one more time, on March 16 2015.  A few days later, on the day of Spring Equinox March 20, there will be the first of two eclipses in a row.

Not only will be that be a very powerful and meaningful day, but it will also give a signature of deep transformational change for Spring Season 2015.

In April 2014 there was a Cardinal Grand Cross with Uranus and Pluto mixed within. There were also two eclipses that month.

And the Grand Cross triggered the USA Natal Chart from July 4 1776, as it was at the same exact Cardinal degree as the USA Sun placement that day- 13+ degrees of Cancer.

So there is growingly clearer view of the great changes the USA is going through in order for it to be aligned with the energies and realities of the Age of Aquarius.

Aquarius is about equality and Diversity within Unity.  There can be no Empires or Superpowers in an Age of Aquarius.

There is breaking down of the notion of superiority and privilege, and a greater sense that “we are all in this together”.

Much worldwide change will be triggered by events in the Middle East, and the economy is destined to be drastically changed as well.

With Cuba now being brought into more normal relations with the USA and west, with Iran being brought more into normality with the rest of the world, with Palestine being more and more accepted as its own state, there is much positive movement toward an Age Of Aquarius,equality, and Diversity in Unity.

There is also much awakening toward the need for even greater civil rights and fairness for African Americans, Hispanics and the Gay/Lesbian community. And of course there is a great need to understand the painful plight of so many women around the world.  Ane men are also caught in the chains of conditioning from the old paradigm, dying in wars that are most often fought for monied interests and the privileged.

But there are also many powerful forces that oppose such attempts at reconciliation, justice, and unity. And there is a real culture war developing between many in the Muslim world and the Judeo-Christian world.   And there are many who want the old world to stay at it is, or even to go back to an earlier time.

So during these times of transition, most especially when powerful planetary movements are erupting like Uranus Square Pluto, there will be much light coming through to awaken people to new consciousness and ways of being with one another on Planet Earth.

But there will also be much resistance to the new energies and new world.

That is like worlds colliding, bringing with it big breakdowns and huge breakthroughs.

And in each of our individual lives, we are experiencing similar breakdowns and breakthroughs.

If you truly are staying present and aware, open in your heart and mind, trusting the Universe and your soul’s journey, you will take the ride to your best and authentic self, to more authentic relationships too.

You will also see more synchronicities, signs from the Universe, and magic.

But you may also experience some pain as you resist the new energies, or as you watch old chapters and people or pets from those old chapters die or leave. You may feel anger, grief, being alone, confusion, and disorientation.  But you will be alive and evolving, and being part of a larger community of souls who are transforming just like you.

We are co-creating a new world together and bringing all the opposites together with truth as our guide.

Turn toward the light now as we move through a most important Winter Solstice this year. There is hope if you open your heart to receive it.

See you next week,

Leo
