Let Go Into Inner Flow and Astrology Forecast February 17-23

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 16, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week’s meeting between Mars and Uranus in Aries created an intense energy field for us to move through.

And its overall purposes were to empower each of us, and to liberate us from stuck places in our minds or lives.

It also intended to motivate us to move forward on our path, even if that path was recently challenged or impeded.

And overall for many it brought breakthroughs and liberation from stuck places.

And we know it is essential now to be true to Authentic Self and spiritual Pathways as much as possible.

We are in a New Life Chapter now, and the Mars/Uranus conjunction tried to push us over any humps that were in the way.

Now we sit on the other side of the bridge, searching for more clarity of direction, hoping for a new normal before too long.  The “old normal” has no more comfort to it and cannot be counted on anymore.

Relationships were very difficult to make or maintain last week, since Mars, Uranus, and Aries are each more oriented to independence, personal space, and individual freedom.

Now that we have passed through that Mars/Uranus “storm”, this coming week (especially after this week’s Full Moon in Virgo) we need to settle into where we now find ourselves.

We may be beginning to experience a letdown now as we “come down” from last week’s aspects and the Eclipse Season that has recently ended.

Part of this letdown may show us some doubt over what we have previously chosen, and it is wise now to let the process continue forward without jumping to conclusions or doing or saying anything impulsive.

This week contains an abundance or planets in Yin signs (water and earth signs), so the down-and-in process is in gear this week.

The Sun moves into Pisces this Monday the 18th, and Pisces is slow go, with the flow. It is time this week and this month to lay back more and let it be.

Pisces is a mutable water sign, and as such it is changeable and eludes and escapes boundaries, borders, and stop signs.  It just keeps in the flow.

Pisces represents the world behind the world, the world of soul and many different frequencies.  It often does not take well to the “real world”, the material world, to anything harsh or burdensome.

It is sensitive and empathic, sometimes easily hurt, and it can go into victim consciousness at times.

It picks up the feelings of others and for some it then becomes difficult at times to differentiate between its own feelings and the feelings of others.

Pisces has a little of each sign in it, and that is why it sometimes has difficulty keeping a solid identity or even knowing what it truly wants and needs.

The Christ is one of its natural archetypes of identity, and so it can become very sacrificial, but also very compassionate and honoring of that which is greater than itself (God, Goddess, Universe, etc.).

Since it seeks to enter frequencies of soul, beyond the material “real” world, it is susceptible to ways of escaping, including with drugs or alcohol.

The inner soul world that Pisces is oriented toward is one of images, signs and symbols.   The dream world is its world, a place that one can escape to, and one that is understood better by the ability to read signs and symbols.

But I am sure you can see how that soul world is nebulous and knowing what is true versus what may be an illusion can be challenging. Poems and metaphor are natural in that world.

So in this Sun in Pisces time ahead, it is best to surrender to the inner soul world as often as possible.  That Pisces time takes us all the way up to Spring Equinox and Sun in Aries March 20.

So this month ahead is for processing, meditating, feeling your feelings, and getting ready for new beginnings in the Spring.

Last week gave us much Aries energy and desires to thrust forward in our lives, with confidence and empowerment.

So this week can feel like a letdown, as the feeling of forward movement was short lived last week, and we are being taken into the dream world of soul now.

Likely full forward movement will have to wait until Spring or Summer 2019.

On February 19, the day after the Sun moves into Pisces, Mercury conjuncts Neptune ( The planet most affiliated with Pisces.  So mentally dipping into deeper feelings will be most natural then.  Using one’s logical, left brain faculties will be quite challenged in finding answers.

Again it is best to allow process to unfold before knowing ultimate answers now.

Also on the 19th there is a Full Moon in Virgo at 10:54 AM EST.  A Full Moon in Virgo has the Sun in Pisces opposite the Moon in Virgo.

This is usually a very gentle full moon, one that requires a letting go of ego or needs to control or dominate.

The Sun in Pisces seeks letting go into the inner dimensions; Moon in Virgo seeks order in the material world.  Virgo categorizes, analyses, differentiates, and looks for what is wrong that needs to be fixed.

Pisces unifies and in so doing is non discriminating, which is one of its strengths and weaknesses.  Virgo naturally sees the differences and faults, which is one of its strengths and weaknesses.

What those two signs have in common are that they both want to be of service, sometimes to the detriment of self.

So this full moon may challenge your ability to see where the truth lies, and also challenge your ability to let things flow while still finding order.

It is best to surrender to this Full Moon and to know that being down does not necessarily mean to be depressed.

Later in the week, on Friday February 22, Venus conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn.  Watch out for power and control battles in relationships. 

In the greater world, so much was coming to a head last week, most notably with a potential government shutdown again. That was averted, a bill signed, but Trump declared a National Emergency so he can have the funds to build his wall.

We will see over the next few weeks what happens there, after the legalities are all considered.

The stock market has been surging in recent weeks, but make no mistake the overall movement is downward and the economy and Military/Industrial Complex will be transformed in a big way over the next few years.

We have put ourselves on life support systems to keep the Old World alive and breathing. It cannot survive.

Last week we saw the firm intention by the Trump administration and Israel to put Iran  in its crosshairs for attack.  And Venezuela may also be targeted.  Bolton and Pompeo have Trump’s ear and both are known war hawks and neocons.

Additionally we heard that the Kushner/Trump “peace”plan for Israel and the Palestinians will soon be unveiled.  There also are new female members of Congress who are trying to educate the masses to know how much the Palestinians are being dominated and oppressed.

So much of the USA government is heavily influenced by the powerful Israeli lobbies that feed the greed and power hunger of the unbalanced Capitalists of the USA and world.

Remember that Truth needs to be revealed and honored in order for there to be a unified marriage between Love and Truth, brought together like the Yin-Yang symbol.

The whole Middle East is in such danger now, and any kind of match will set it on fire. And the Palestinian issue holds so much of the tension there underneath all else.

This is similar to what was happening in South Africa in the ’80s, before the revolution that ended the horrible oppression of black people there.   We will need a world wide mass protest movement to bring justice for the Palestinians and peace for both Israel and Palestine.  Israel will need vast healing for the PTSD it still suffers from the horror of its oppression in World War II at the hands of the Nazi’s.   That PTSD is a strong influence in how they treat the Palestinians.

All is moving forward toward the Age of Aquarius and a new world of equality; Diversity within unity; and Love and Truth as its pillars.

Keep the faith no matter how it looks on the surface. Fear and Hatred kill the buzz of Age of Aquarius consciousness.

Talk next week,

Leo

Breaking Away and Astrology Forecast February 10-16

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 10, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we passed through the New Moon in Aquarius this last week, we effectively put an end to Winter Eclipse Season 2019.

This coming week, still “climbing upward” through the waxing half of the current lunar cycle, we experience a powerful and liberating planetary combination of Mars conjunct Uranus at the last degree of Aries (29+ degrees).

Last week, after the Aquarius New Moon on the 4th, the first winds of this Mars/Uranus conjunction were blowing in.

Events, that are a direct result of the recent eclipses, will be ready to enter our world, both personal and collective.  The next few months will be filled up with important and life changing wake-up calls and motivations to push our lives forward.

The Mars/Uranus conjunction, which we began experiencing last week, brought many difficulties in relationships.  Mars/Uranus in Aries is very independence minded, action oriented, and motivates one to be true to Self sometimes at all costs.

Any boxes you are in, especially boxes that have severely limited your independence and freedom, will want to break open.  Action that you have been putting off will be triggered for movement forward.  Relationships that have tried your patience and your ability to retain compassion, will be severely tested.

Desires for liberation and “breaking out” will open up more in each of us.

And any boxes you have been pushed into or pushed yourself into will be cracking open.

This Uranus/Mars conjunction is exact on the 12th, overnight into the 13th; but its effects will be felt all week long.

You may be challenged to be empathetic in relationships, as this Mars/Uranus conjunction tends toward the needs of Self more than “others”.

Co-dependence and relationship patterns that enable people to stay stuck, will be threatened as well.

This conjunction happens at 29+ degrees of Aries, so it triggers by trine the important Total Solar Eclipse (that travelled across the USA) in August 2017.

Remember the passion for war between North Korea and the USA then? Remember the violence in Charlottesville Virginia that month, violence that felt like the American Civil War in the late 1800’s? This had a strong racial element to  it, with marches by KKK and neo nazi’s.

Now this month there is a second meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un; and Virginia has been facing racial issues with its Governor this month.

But there is another conflict going on that is not directly related to those issues, but is beginning to have the same passion for war. It is not so much with North Korea yet, but with Venezuela now.

Venezuela has the world’s largest supply of oil reserves and is a weak country militarily.  It is now in the crosshairs of the USA military as it is going through a coup attempt against its elected President Maduro.

The USA and some European countries are firmly backing the opposition leader who has already declared himself the new president. This is obviously an attempt to control Venezuela, as was previously done in many countries by the USA and other colonialist nations.

And most recently Iraq, Syria, and Libya have been invaded or helped to destabilize by the USA.

Phony reasons for invasion are made up, like WMDs in Iraq, chemical attacks by Syrian government in Syria, etc.

Now some countries will claim to be saviors for the Venezuela people.   Many new leaders in the USA see this old pattern coming back up again and want no part of the regime change that is being set up by the USA and some western countries.

Besides the Total Solar Eclipse button being pushed by the Mars/Uranus conjunction this week, the USA natal Mars at 21+ degrees of Gemini is being opposed by Jupiter in Sagittarius now.

Important USA military and police actions have occurred when the USA Mars is activated.  And the assassinations of JFK and MLK both happened when that USA natal Mars was triggered.

Remember that the USA Military and Economic Empire is in the process of huge transformation now and through the early 2020’s.

In fact the USA natal Pluto in its 2nd house at almost 28 degrees of Capricorn (which symbolically is the Military/Industrial complex) is being activated by the square of the Mars/Uranus conjunction in Aries this week.

Israel, Syria, and North Korean planets are being activated by that Mars/Uranus conjunction now too. And Venezuela’s Jupiter and Pluto are being triggered by the Jupiter transit this week.

In May/June this year Jupiter, accompanied by Mars in Gemini, will again hit that same 21+ degree of Gemini.

Whatever happens this week, and overall in February, will give us strong clues of what will happen in the near future to the Military/Industrial Complex of the USA.

This means big transformation in this New Chapter of life, on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

Alexandra Ocasio-Cortex, who is growing by leaps and bounds after being elected to the USA House of Representatives, is attempting with others to present a New Deal for the future USA.

She and other House leaders put out a new Green Deal, which shows the potential for combating Climate Change, providing health and education for all Americans. And part of the solution is presented as higher taxes for the wealthiest of people.

Some inclusion of Socialism in the USA is said to be needed to make the New Green Deal work.

And it is no mere coincidence that Venezuela is categorized as being a socialist country, as we prepare to tear it down.

Europe already has health care for all, and we in the USA already have “socialistic” programs like Medicare, and government funded public schools, police departments and fire departments.

Transformation is expanding and accelerating.  In December 2020, at the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, we will find an open portal to the Age of Aquarius.

This is only a month or so past the Presidential Election in November 2020.

Much will change before then, in our world and in our personal lives.

This week there is the Mars/Uranus conjunction, then the next day Mars leaves Aries and enters Taurus, where it will stay till late March.

Mars in Taurus will make what has been opening up for us real, grounded, and solid. It brings the energy of manifestation.

Let the energies of liberation, truth telling, independence, and self-concern into your life strongly this week.  But stay aware of your relationships too.  Do not “throw the baby out with the bath water”.

Do your best to preserve healthy relationships. Instead of abandoning those relationships, try instead letting go of the old dynamics and patterns that have been harming your relationships.

We are ready now to go forward toward our new normal, having lost sight of the old normal. It has been difficult for many lately- being in this kind of purgatory or limbo.

But now energies are accelerating for real change and movement forward.  Hitch a ride.

See you next week,

Leo

To Be or Not to Be and Astrology Forecast March 2-15

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 1, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

It is transition time this week, as Mercury has just gone Direct; there is a New Moon in Pisces Saturday March 1 at 3 AM EST; Mars changes directions and goes Retrograde- also on March 1; Saturn goes Retrograde on March 2; and Jupiter goes Direct on Thursday March 6.

As planets change direction, either from Direct to Retrograde or from Retrograde to Direct; their meaning and energy have increased intensity and importance.

Add the New Moon in Pisces to these directional shifts, and there will be a feeling of new horizons to move toward, new consciousness to experience, and deeper feelings to explore.

A symbol of Pisces is two fishes going in opposite directions.  This is symbolic of navigating one’s soul consciousness waters and deciding which direction to move in- upstream or downstream, positive or negative.

Though the Pisces world is often rather nebulous, and hence it does not always know what it wants or what direction to go; most Pisces people do tend to be either glass half full or glass half empty people.

Sure the more positive Pisces can have periods of dark negativity, feelings of hurtful victimization; negative ways of escapism like drugs, alcohol, or disassociation, and not feeling up to the task of being in “reality”, they nevertheless always go back to their core of resilience, faith in life, and hope for better times.

The glass half empty Pisces has moments of hope and joy, but at their core they identify with being a victim and not up to the task of cold hard reality, as they see it.

Though both are dreamers and know inside themselves what a better humanity would look like, the half full Pisces believes we can one day create heaven on Earth, while the half empty Pisces down deep believes human life is painful and history will keep repeating itself.

So these next few weeks, with emphasis on this coming week as planets are changing directions and Pisces has its annual new moon event, it is time for each of us, no matter what sign, to decide if our personal glass of life is half full or half empty.

With the planets changing directions during this Pisces mutable month before spring, events and inner stirrings will draw you into deeper and changeable feelings and consciousness.

As we shift, is there hope in your heart or cynicism at your core?

Mercury going direct should help you to revive and think more clearly now.   Mars and Saturn changing directions at the same time this weekend may have you feeling both stop and go inside your self- desires to act and caution to hold back.  Best to not go to any extremes, not be impulsive, and just “let it pass”.

When Mars goes Retrograde, which it will do from March 1- May 19, it is a significant passage as it happens only once every other year.  While it is retrograde we are going deeper to decide what we truly want or desire and what direction we want to move toward.  We also may be dealing with issues of will, assertiveness, empowerment, and anger during that time

By mid week this week, however, as Jupiter goes Direct on Thursday March 6 (where it will stay until December) ; there should be feelings of renewal and perhaps an expansive outpouring of emotions.

Jupiter going Direct will sweep you into your inner tides of soulful feelings and emotions, and deeper into deciding “glass half full or half empty”?

This is important now to stay with, be present for, and find your way to deciding.  As winds of change will pick up appreciably after March 30 at the Aries Moon, a new moon that will push us over the edge into a most powerful Spring Eclipse Season 2014; it is time now over the next 4 weeks to build a more solid inner foundation.

This week especially your inner world may swirl back and forth, up and down like a ship on the ocean.  It is a great time to meditate, to go with your flow, and especially to watch your dreams, both waking and sleeping.   Put a journal next to your bed and record your dreams, looking for signs and symbols to reveal your inner truths.

The greater world also will be swirling and bouncing up and down with events, looking like it is not sure where it is going. The stock market should be up and down looking for direction; current hot spots like Syria, Iran, Ukraine, Thailand, Egypt, Israel, Afghanistan, Venezuela, and Korea may be swinging back and forth from dangerous to settled. Ukraine right now is especially important as old Cold War issues between Russia and the West are surfacing again, as they battle for control of that country.

As a culture we are needing to know what direction we are moving in on many issues.  Are we on the verge of giving a better living wage to workers or not?  Are we now going to commit our world to meeting the challenge of Climate Change on Earth?  Or better yet are we going to commit to healing our Earth and developing worldwide policies to clean the environment, and begin developing clean energy sources?

Have we turned the corner to believe our world and its people are of one family, with many varied members:  Diversity in Unity?  That belief will help us to eventually evolve to a new species, one that knows ONENESS, and knows all the dots of the Universe are connected and held up by the twin pillars of Love and Truth? Or are we going to have another world war, a war built on the cynical belief that all tribes of human are out for themselves, against all others for the wealth and power of the world?

How we see it will determine what will manifest.  Glass Half Full or Half Empty?

In your personal life the same issue is before you.  Have all your relationship “failures” brought you to believe you are undeserving and will never have healthy relationships, that all men or women are no good, that you have horrible luck or are jinxed?

Or do you believe each of your past relationships, whether family, friend or romantic, happened for a reason, was a learning experience, and deepened your soul awareness, your empathy and wisdom?

Of course we go back and forth sometimes in our emotions and beliefs, the pain so horrible we see only the pit of despair below.   But we can navigate those soul waters, with perhaps a little help from our friends, healers, therapists and counselors, to learn to see from a wider perspective, and to know we are evolving and progressing.

As we soon move into Spring Eclipse 2014 Season, where will your soul swimming take you?  What will your glass of life look like?

Or as Hamlet said, “To Be or Not To Be, That is the Question”.

I will be in Mexico on the ocean for vacation till March 10.  Not sure if I will write next Saturday or not.  If I do it will be shorter than usual.

The next full forecast will be at the Ides of March on March 15,  just before the Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo.

talk with you soon,

Leo
