Doing the Right Thing and Astrology Forecast December 1-7

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on November 30, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week begins in the early days of the lunar cycle that began at the Sagittarius New Moon on November 26.

Sagittarius is a fiery, expansive energy that often shows us an inspiration to do something new and adventurous.   Sagittarius brings a light and warmth, even as we in the Northern Hemisphere of Planet Earth are facing darker and colder days now.

Sagittarius seeks to always be positive and hopeful, to have faith in oneself,  life itself, or whatever gods or goddesses one believes in.

Sagittarius is the centaur with the archer on top shooting for the stars, while being part horse down below.

That symbolizes a Sagittarius challenge:  It likes to take the “high road” with zestful optimism. It can sometimes be so “up” that it can seem manic.  If it stays in this “up”  position for a long time, it may be avoiding being aware of its body, which can thus cause body issues or illness.

Sagittarius wants to believe it lives in a meaningful Universe, or at least believe it can find important answers that will provide a positive life experience

Sagittarius can be rather opinionated and doubting it can be wrong. Its presence, however, usually gets people to feel more positive and/or inspired.  It can have great trust in its intuition, but that confidence sometimes leads to “leaping before it looks” and hence experiencing a difficult situation.

Right now, with all the difficulties we are facing, it is hopefully leaving us with some hope and faith.  Doing positive visualization in your meditation can go a long way during Sagittarius times. The holidays during Sagittarius times can help with feeling more positive, but that is not lasting.

This Monday December 2 takes Jupiter out of Sagittarius, where it has resided for the last year, and drops it into Capricorn, where it will live for the net year.

Jupiter loves to be in Sagittarius as it is expansive and “positive”.  Capricorn is “ruled” by Saturn, where gravity is stronger. And that is not liked by free-spirit Jupiter.

So for the next year, while Jupiter is in Capricorn, we collectively need to reign ourselves in so we can deal with the realities of our lives.

When Jupiter accepts its stay in Capricorn, it can then do well with manifesting its dreams or goals in the real 3-D world.

So do not give up your dreams while Jupiter is in Capricorn. Instead compromise with the real world enough to find your niche’ in the growing community of the Age of Aquarius.

We now have Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto all in Capricorn together, which has not happened for several hundred years.

It is time to begin, for real, building the Age of Aquarius.

Mercury is no longer in Retrograde, and a new year is soon to be born. And it will be born while we enjoy important planetary movements and meaningful eclipses.

Uranus goes Direct on January 10, which puts all planets Direct, which does not often happen.

So it is time now to find our place in this new world, even as the old one crumbles.

Know that we will not go back to how it was with Obama or anyone else.  During Trump time, we have entered a world with little connection to the America we have all known. That opens doors not previously noticed.

It is rather ironic, I believe, to be in this crazy world we cannot relate to, which has come to our consciousness since a man was elected promising to make America Great Again.

Soon presidential primaries begin, and the potential future is being presented to us by candidates who are promising to take us into a world less governed by big money and corporations, and more governed by “we the people”.

Do you believe we can do that? Do you want to do that? That equality is very Aquarius.  Run by the people is very Aquarius.

It is our future.  This is not something I am necessarily wishing- It is what is destined to happen.

What will need to happen for this to be reality?  A lot will need to happen in order for our world to not be run by those who are the best competitors.

That old paradigm believes we are these people out only for ourselves, it is the best we can do to use that Capitalistic selfishness to build the world.

But how about those who are not great competitors?  They deserve to be poor in the survival of the fittest world?

We have built a world on that old premise,  but look at the people who run it in the main.

Trump shows the ultimate truth of that world: Rich and famous wins, no matter what their character is like.

We will have a better world with more people at the top who are caring, loving, honest people who care about one another, and know all the dots in the Universe are connected.

That is the new spirituality, no longer the “spirituality” of religions who use rigid moral rules and guilt to keep our selfish selves under control.

Do you need guilt to get you to do the “right thing”? Do you need Commandments?

Or have you evolved to a place where it is natural to care for your self while also caring how others live? That is the world of connections guided by Love and Truth.

Talk with you next week,

Leo

Saturn/Pluto and Astrology Forecast April 21-17

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

Saturn and Pluto have an approximate 35 year cycle.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo

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

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.

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
