This week we experience the last eclipse this Eclipse Season. It is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on January 21 at 12:16 AM EST.

Full Moons, whether Lunar Eclipse or not, always have the Sun exactly opposite the Moon. In this case the Sun is in Aquarius and the Moon in Leo.

Actually the Sun will have just moved into Aquarius on Sunday the 20th, as the Moon moves into Leo several hours later.

When they meet up in opposition, they will be in the very early portion of Leo and Aquarius.

The Sun will be at less than 1 degree of Aquarius, and the Moon at less than 1 degree of Leo.

The greater world is reflecting this opposition very well this week, as Leo is the “royal” leader, and Aquarius is the people or the body that is supposed to represent the people, in this case the USA Congress.

Executive branch of government is Leo, legislative branch is more Aquarius.

Trump versus Pelosi and Schumer is a perfect representation of this Leo/Aquarius opposition.

Remember that a Lunar Eclipse is probably 10 times or more potent than a normal Full Moon.

So that is why this standoff with Trump and Pelosi is so intense and so important on a very deep level of collective consciousness.

Something is bound to breakdown or breakthrough on this tug-of-war.  Something will happen to shift everything in a new way.

That is likely just because this is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, but also because this Full Moon in Leo creates a T-Square with Uranus in Aries.

And Uranus is the planet of breakthroughs, awakenings, inventiveness, and liberation.

Yes our world is holding together by mere threads of connection.  The Mueller investigation is also part of this eclipse and t-square, and so something is on the verge of breaking open in that case as well.

And the stock market, which had been falling rapidly, rebounded with the Bulls this last week.  But this will be short lived and more falling will follow some time after the Eclipse.

A Total Lunar Eclipse, as this one is, should be seen in the light of turning points.  And maybe great events will occur close to the Eclipse Date, but often events do not show up for 3-6 months later, events that are directly associated with the Eclipse.

So look deeply for signs that show you exactly what the turning point is in our world and in your personal life. Pay special attention to dreams, which might be especially intense and revealing now.

In the greater world, are there signs around the eclipse date, that show we are truly moving toward impeachment?  Are there signs the economy will enter a recession or depression before too long?  Is the government standoff for a wall showing the winds are changing in some way between the Royal President and the power of the people.

Trump is as close to identifying with presidential royalty or dictator  as I have witnessed before in the USA . And Congress is more deaf to the needs of the people than it has ever been. Now it mostly answers to special interests and big money corporations.

The Empire certainly rivals the Roman Empire that began the Age of Pisces, which is soon ending for the Age of Aquarius.

Can we return to our Aquarian principles of people power, equality, and freedom; or do we continue our slow journey into rule and privilege by the few.

America began when Uranus (the ruling planet of Aquarius) was being discovered (1781).  The USA natal Moon from its July 4, 1776 inception is in Aquarius.

We used to be a model for the Age of Aquarius and its Diversity within Unity paradigm.

Can we return to those principles and be a beacon of light for the world, and not a Superpower Empire ?

This Aquarius/Leo Lunar Eclipse is a turning point in the greater world and in personal lives.

How about in your life? So many people have been up and down and all around lately. Much breaking down, much lighting up, feeling the depth of change in life now.

What more do you need to release? What will be baggage in your new chapter and has to go?

What are you seeing and feeling that is coming into your life now? Can you embrace it with confidence yet?

The ego wants to control and hold on, as change comes swirling in.  Unclasp your arms, let go and release. Surrender now and move forward and evolve.

Your consciousness wants to expand and grow, learn new ways of being.

Are any of your current relationships keeping you locked up and unable to move forward? Can you change those patterns? Do you need to consider more drastic options?

Are you keeping anything, including job or where you live, just because you are having a difficult time letting go of your security blankets? You can start by releasing old attitudes and beliefs that limit you.

Let this Lunar Eclipse Full Moon serve as a turning point for you, as you open to the change that is aligned with your best interests, your authentic self and life, your sense of purpose.

This week is complicated, in part because we are experiencing a Lunar Eclipse Full moon that is part of an intensified T-square with Uranus. That alone is a real shake-up pattern.

But in addition Venus in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces on Sunday January 20. This is such an idealistic combination that represents higher ideals but maybe also romanticized ideas. It can also mean more confusion in regards to matters of the heart.

On Monday the 21st Mars squares Saturn, putting lights on red/stop and go/green at the same time.  So while the Eclipse is a sign of movement and breaking open, Mars square gravity pulling Saturn says no you need to stop or at least wait.

Mars is in Aries, where it is at its strongest. Saturn is in Capricorn where it is most strong. This is like putting one foot on the gas and one on the breaks at the same time.

Best to hold back and wait till the best time later.

There is war sprouting up in the Middle East now, but it may hold off for a little bit with this Mars/Saturn aspect. Not sure how long.

That which has seemingly been settled may show events or signs that make you pause, further evaluate and process before moving forward, which would happen at the Aquarius New Moon on February 4, a new moon that effectively ends Winter Eclipse Season 2019.

In-between seasons sacred Imbolc is on February 2, then the New Moon on the 4th that may have strong new beginnings that are a direct effect of this Eclipse Season. Chinese New Year happens then also.

Back to this week, on Tuesday the 22nd, Venus in Sagittarius is conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius. Then on Friday the 25th Mars in Aries trines Jupiter in Sagittarius.

This is back to the green light of going forward.

So ups and downs, stops and go may be a theme this week. Could go from manic or impulsive to a hard stop and back again

Do your best not be impulsive on the one hand, nor judgmental defeatist on the other hand.

I’d say put your seat belt on all week, not just on the Lunar Eclipse Day.

It is time to break out and break open. It is also time to stop and let go.

Heart connections and Astrology Forecast June 26- July 4.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 27, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week has some spirited heart energies moving through that should pick up the pace of creative expression and positive transformational change.

After the Moon moves into lively Sagittarius late Sunday (where it stays until early Wednesday), heart centered Venus in Leo makes relatively graceful connections with both Uranus and Jupiter.

And on Wednesday at 1:32 PM EDT there is a Capricorn Full Moon that holds Neptune in its signature.

Early Monday June 29 Venus in Leo trines Uranus in Aries, triggering the Uranus/Pluto square and Jupiter/Uranus trine.  That means that more positive change will be opened up though relational interactions.   This aspect will be felt for several days leading up to and after the exact meeting.

Then on Wednesday before the Full Moon, Venus in Leo makes another connection- this time a favorable conjunction with Jupiter in Leo.

This is a good week for experiencing strong heart connections with others.  Some of these heart connections may be unexpected, some may up the knowing of connections already felt.

On our road through transformation into an Age of Aquarius, which has been picking up speed in 2014/15;  we need to be more open hearted, trusting the connections that come through our hearts, which are gateways to our souls.

It is best not to label the connections too soon.  Some automatically go to sex or romance when their heart feels a strong connection with someone else.

But that might not be the reason the Universe is bringing you such a strong heart connection.  There are so many possibilities for the hearts merging.

Sometimes it is because you have things to learn from another, things to give to one another.  Sometimes there may be past life recognition that may require further investigation.

Sometimes this person you are feeling heart connection with is meant to be a catalyst for transformational change in your life.  And yes sometimes a sexual and/or romantic involvement may be the stimulant needed for such transformation.

What do you do if you are living a stable, comfortable life, in a committed relationship; and then this powerful heart connection penetrates your soul ?

In pre ’60s culture, people would stay in their stable lives and relationships no matter what.  Perhaps they would have an affair but still stay in the relationship.  Then the ’60s seemed to give people the permission to follow their hearts, even if it meant breaking up relationships and families.

Now there are powerful transformational winds of change again, similar to the ’60s and ’70s.

People have been opening to natural heart and soul connections more readily again lately.  They are even more open to gay or bisexual behavior now, transexual, polyamorous, and open relationships.

This is because there is such strong energy moving through to trust your heart and be true to your authentic being.  But there should be a warning label on these connections:  this relationship or lifestyle will break down your old status quo and suck you into a whirlpool of enormous change.

Yet that might be exactly what you need to grow and evolve, to move out of ego control, and to connect more authentically with your true Self and life purposes.

Trust your heart, but consult with your head.  Use the relationship between them to get the clarity you need.   But of course sometimes the power of the heart connection leaves you no choice but to follow it.  Those kind of connections give no real choice at all, but they do not happen all the time.  When they do, the power of divine Love is making a powerful statement that cannot be denied even if it will disrupt one’s whole life.

It may be wise to have an astrological or other kind of consultation during these kind of crises, so you can get to the deeper meaning of the heart connection and the crossroads you are facing.

Heart connections this week may also be just light and fun ones, ones that promote creative expression. That creative expression will be conducive to your transformational growth. It may help you to better know your authentic self.  Creativity from a heart space almost always opens a doorway into self knowledge.

After Venus makes conjunction with Jupiter in Leo on Wednesday July 1,  there will be a Full Moon in Capricorn.

A Full Moon in Capricorn always has the Sun in Cancer exactly opposite the Moon in Capricorn.  Cancer is our inner personal orientation, while Capricorn is our more outer directed impersonal orientation.

Cancer seeks a safe unconditional setting or personal connection that allows it to be able to be itself naturally and organically.

Capricorn cares more about accomplishment and task oriented projects that require planning and discipline.

Cancer cares more about nurturance and moving wherever its feelings dispose it toward. It does not like set obligations, outer world responsibilities or any “shoulds”.

Capricorn values getting things done efficiently and so has no time for moods or feeling swings.

So now at the Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn it may be a good time to become more aware of how you balance outer responsibilities or career choices with personal home and family considerations.

And do you need more time to “just be” without judging yourself?  Or conversely do you need to “step up to the plate” and do what you have to do even if you do not feel like it?

There will be a strong Neptune connection in this Capricorn Full Moon,  as it trines the Sun and sextiles the Moon.  This suggests a need to surrender to the flow and magic around this Full Moon. Don’t try to figure it all out in your head.  Let clarity unfold instead, in its proper timing.

With Neptune being strong in this lunation, there may be some confusion, so again let go and just let it all be processed later.

On the global scene, there is a deadline this week to come to an agreement with Iran around its nuclear program.  As I write this, there are some big bones of contention still, but most who are directly involved do desire a solution.

The planetary confusion mid week may force a continuation of talks beyond the June 30 deadline, or at least much confusion about what exactly has been agreed to.

And there is no agreement in Greece on its economy.  The latest is that there will be a referendum put to the people to decide on its financial fate.  The economic health of Europe and much of the world are dependent on Greece.

And there was a big sign that the light of the Age of Aquarius in shining through more brightly now as the Supreme Court of the USA made a decision that makes Gay marriage a law of the land.

July will pick up the pace of transformational change again, especially mid to late July and into early August.  A major turning point will develop during that time period.

Enjoy what could be a rather magical week if you are in the flow.

Till next week,

Leo

Time to Pause and Astrology Forecast August 17-23

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 16, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving down into the last quarter of the lunar cycle this week, and there are no “important” or very intense planetary movements right now.  Maybe we can take a break from so many great waves of change, and settle down a bit.

We are also in the last few days of Leo time of year before we enter the transition month between summer and autumn.   That transition begins later this week as the Sun moves into Virgo on Saturday the 23rd at 12:46 AM Eastern USA Time.

So if you have not gotten too beaten up by all the intensity from early this year through last week, perhaps you can find some time for fun this week.

Or maybe you will need the time to process all that has happened, to get deeper into your body and soul and do some healing.  Perhaps you will need this down time to make some completions, find some resolution, get a better understanding of all that has erupted in your life this year.

This year is an important year of transformation for our human species.  We are in a most powerful chapter of the transition between ages.   We are being “asked” to transform our lives and consciousness in alignment with the Age we are moving into.

To evolve one does not have to be “mean and lean”, does not necessarily mean being the strongest or the most intelligent.  Survival of the fittest is mostly about adaptability to change.

And right now adaptability is mostly about changing one’s consciousness to be in alignment with what the Age of Aquarius is demanding.  Those who still believe that the ones who have the most power or the most money or the most popularity will be the survivors – are off track as that kind will populate the zoos or be the dinosaurs of our future.

Those who believe in Love, who know we are all members of the same family, who respect those who are different from them,  who cherish the Earth, who learn to have empathy for others,  who know all in life is connected and meaningful, will evolve into our new world.  Jesus is said to have spoken that the “meek share inherit the Earth”.  Those who have peace in their hearts will help our Earth and our human family to heal and transform.

I know when you look around now at all the events in the world, it can be so frightening and tempt one to live in fear and become cynical.

Last week we had a well known member of our human family, one who was famous and rich hang himself- Robin Williams.

Buying into the cultural values and being successful on those terms does not make one happy or help one to better survive in the bigger picture.

What one develops in one’s heart and soul, in one’s “inner kingdom”, is where the key to being satisfied and evolving lies.

If you are fearful, depressed, self loathing, untrusting, then you will find misery and you will not truly grow and evolve on a deeper level.  This does not mean you should judge or blame yourself or others for being in that sad state. But you do need to take responsibility for your inner health.

And it does mean that going within and finding your true self, finding inner peace, finding love and truth, will help you most on your life journey.

This does not mean that money or success or popularity are bad, and in fact they can make life easier and more enjoyable.

But without the inner values, those things will be empty and you may never feel you have enough of them.

And without the intention for your  consciousness evolving now, beyond what the conventional world has programmed you to believe and be, you will not be open to the signs that show you your true path of soul evolution.

If you are becoming who others want you to be, you are losing your Self and your health and moving off your soul’s path.

One of the benefits of these transformational times is that the parts of your life that are inauthentic are revealed to you when things break down, so you can see the light again and change direction.

Powerfully transformative Uranus and Pluto will continue making exact square to one another, which has been happening since 2012, through Spring 2015- and will continue to bring transformational energy even after that.

The last time Uranus and Pluto made major exact aspect to one another was in 1965-66 when they were conjunct.  This brought on the ’60s revolution, but of course that revolution stretched into the ’70s.

The next exact square between Uranus and Pluto is in December this year 2014.  And that will be at the end of the autumn, finishing off another Eclipse Season, this time Autumn Eclipse Season 2014. 

The beginning waves of this Eclipse Season will be felt in mid September and the first actual eclipse will be on October 8, a Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aries. That will be followed by a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 23.

Uranus and Pluto will be making a Cardinal T-square with  that Aries Lunar Eclipse, a formation almost as powerful as a Grand Cross.

But for now as we enter the last quarter Moon in Taurus this Sunday the 17th, do your best to chill and recharge your heart “batteries”.

Late Sunday/early Monday Jupiter conjuncts Venus in Leo, to bring more joy and hope to you along with the light and airy Moon in Gemini at that time.

Later in the week, after the Moon goes into feeling oriented Cancer from Wednesday through most of Friday, there are relatively minor aspects involving Uranus, Pluto, and Mars in Scorpio.  That should bring more intensity, but nothing to shake you up too much.

See you next week,

Leo
