Love and Truth and Astrology Forecast April 23- 29

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving through the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the Aries New Moon on March 27.

Important events that could lead to more explosive events erupted during this Aries lunar cycle.

Russia, Iran, North Korea, United States, Syria, and Israel are all very triggered by these recent events.  Actually the whole world may be affected ultimately by these events.

So during the 4th quarter we review what has happened during the Aries lunar cycle, and get ready for new beginnings at the New Moon in Taurus this Wednesday April 26.

What has opened up for you personally since March 27?   What are you needing to move into more fully, or move on from? What still needs to be healed and transformed?

Mercury is still Retrograde and Venus was Retrograde during much of this lunar cycle, till April 15 when Venus went back Direct.

What has been happening in your important relationships?  Have you been taken back to old patterns you thought you had moved beyond.

Do you now have more clarity about those relationships?

If not keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde until May 3, when it goes back Direct. Total clarity may have to wait until then or more likely a week or so after it goes back direct.

Big decisions that will importantly affect your life would be better off waiting until then.

More pull to “how it used to be” may continue for you.  Do your best to resist feeling your old reality is your reality again.

You may be revisiting old places in your Old Chapter of life, so you can better know what your New Chapter needs are.

There is a process of integration of the past going on, so you do not forget “where you came from”.

There will be a feeling of moving forward more at the New Moon in Taurus on April 26 at 8:16 AM EDT.

Taurus takes in, manifests in reality, and then holds onto tightly.

So whatever was begun during the Aries lunar cycle will tend to take hold after the Taurus New Moon.   If that which began in the Aries cycle has no real “life” to it, it will not take hold.  It will not be made manifest.

Looking at the recent world events, look closely at what has unfolded from them, especially after the New Moon on the 26, and even more so after Mercury goes Direct on May 3.

Are those events merely the past coming back for a look-see again, or are those events more indicative of what is truly brewing in our world.

Taurus is fixed Earth and when it grabs something it does not let go.

So if you have started something recently, if it is aligned and alive, the Taurus New Moon will tend to make it more real and grounded.

Taurus likes to make things more secure and comfortable.  That is why money and other resources like real estate are under the umbrella of Taurus.

Taurus is the Earth and our earthly bodies.   It wants to let us know that our bodies can be a pleasurable experience, and it does so in part by enlivening our senses.

Tasty and healthy food therefore is important for Taurus as a result.

During Taurus time we also can usually calm down from the fiery energy of Aries. Everything seeks to slow down and relax.   But you may then feel rather bored if you seek a lot of passion and intensity.

Those recent world events that brought conflict will now either calm down appreciably or be made more real and manifest.

This summer, especially near the August Eclipses, we will experience the fallout from some of the recent events.

We are truly in a new zone now and sometimes you will feel confused or “out of sorts” and unbalanced.

Your body may go through some temporary shifts too,  shifts that feel like you might be sick or that something might be wrong with you.

Let whatever it is play out to see if it stays or not. In most cases it will be temporary, as we are all being shifted in our minds, souls, and bodies by new energies.

Stay open and present as much as you can now.  Realize old wounds and traumas may tend to be triggered, so please do your best to not be carried away by overreacting.

These new energies want to move into you, and when they confront the blocks in your system, the ones that developed from your old wounds and traumas, they may trigger old reactions.

Remember that these old traumas can be transformed.  You can then see that what has happened to you in the past can be a motivation to empower yourself, to improve yourself, and to have empathy for others who have suffered.

You may have been victimized but you are not a victim.  Victim consciousness disempowers people and is part of the old age, not the new age.

Everything that has happened in your life is meaningful and meant to help you to transform and evolve, and to potentially assist others who have been suffering.

The more explosive world events that are coming are part of the process too, as Nature has earthquakes and tornadoes and tsunamis.

Life will go on, and an Age of Aquarius in dawning.  The transition will be better if each of us stays aligned and lives their life according to the nature of the Universe.

Love and Truth are the pillars that hold up the divine realms of the Universe.  Allowing them to be an integral part of our Earthly life paradigm and the Age of Aquarius is quite important now and going forward.

Each of us can make strong intention to let those values be the engine of our life, not materialism, greed, or power.

Please take a look at the video David Lonebear Sanipass and I created recently- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W2WIRHQ5IQ

Till next week,

Leo

Getting Off the Fence, and Astrology Forecast April 16-23.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 15, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Venus is now Direct after having been retrograde since March 4th this year.

During Venus Retrograde periods we rewind our hearts to remember earlier times in our lives and to get in deeper connection with our hearts.

What did you learn during Venus Retrograde about what is in your heart?  Did you learn more about your current relationships, what state they are in, and what needs to be done with them.

This is not only meant to be about “romantic” relationships, but also perhaps about friends, family, work relationships, etc.

Did you learn more about what is in your heart and what and whom you truly love? Even if you did not think about that during the Retrograde period, it is good to begin to think and feel about that now.

Did you meet any new people during Venus Retrograde?  How do you feel in your heart about them?  Does it look like they will continue to be in your life?

Did you get more clear about current relationships and what patterns you want to transform?

Are there any relationships that ended during Venus Retrograde or that you need to think about ending now?

Did any people from the past come back into your life through dreams, strong memories, or in person?    Do those relationships have any bearing on how you look at a current relationship?

Do you feel excited about any new or revived relationships?  Do you feel sad about any current or past relationships?

Venus also has some rulership, through Taurus, of our bodies, our homes, our land and resources.

Are there any changes that happened or will soon happen around your body, home, land, or resources?

It is good to let Venus be Direct for a week or so before jumping to any relationship conclusions. Clarity starts now and will grow over the next week or so.

Of course to complicate matters Mercury is now Retrograde and will not go Direct until May 3rd.

So there is some potential mental rewind going on now, some changing of perceptions, and perhaps thinking of changing decisions or life direction.

Do your best to let the Venus Direct process naturally unfold, until you get crystal clear about the matter before taking action. Don’t force your heart or mind to get clear before it is time.

This last week world relationships were rather strained and have gotten to a very dangerous point.

The USA bombed Syria because it says Syria used chemical weapons on its own people. Use your own judgment about the veracity of that claim.

The USA also dropped the biggest bomb ever used, except for a nuclear weapon, on tunnels in Afghanistan.  That bomb also killed a hundred or so people, said to be Islamic State people.

And North Korea and the United States are macho posturing with one another now. That is a most dangerous situation.

We could be moving toward a world war, with August being a most important turning point on this issue.  Hopefully we can reverse this current trajectory.

My friend David Lonebear Sanipass has said that April 15 is an important day in the Cosmos and for our world.  All these dangerous situations are revolving around that date, which must be some kind of turning point.

He and I had a video conversation with one another today the 15th of April.  I will put that up on youtube early this coming week, and will let you know with a link on an update of this week’s blog/forecast. So come back to this week’s forecast and you will be able to access it.

I do talk about this coming August on the video.

That will be an important month with 2 eclipses, the second one being especially important.

That will be a Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21. Its path will be across the USA from Oregon to the Carolinas.  It is the first Total Eclipse to move entirely across the USA since June of 1918.

This eclipse in August will be almost exactly, to the degree, conjunct planetary positions of birth charts of Syria (nodes), North Korea (Saturn), and Israel (Mars). I explain more on the video and will explain more in writing closer to the event.

That Eclipse will also be conjunct Donald Trump’s natal Mars in Leo and directly opposite the USA Moon in Aquarius.

There are other aspects that month that trigger the USA Mars and Pluto.

That will be an enormous crossroads turning point time period, and a few months surrounding that eclipse should be filled with important world events, especially concentrated in August.

That should be a very intense time period energetically, and it also will bring huge waves of creative frequencies of love and truth for your transformational process.

We are all needing to clear our energy fields, minds and hearts of toxic old world energies.  It is important to let go of what has been programmed into us by an old world paradigm.

That old paradigm keeps a dense blockade against the new energies trying to pour into us.

As we clear our minds, hearts, souls and bodies of these toxins we create an opening for the new waves.

And now as you look at our world, you know it is imperative for each of us to get off the fence of straddling two worlds, and to make commitment to the New World and Age of Aquarius.

This does not mean you throw caution to the wind and throw away all your security supports.  But it does mean you let go of the fears that keep you a slave to the old world paradigm.  It does mean your allegiance is to your Self, the Universe, the Truth, and what you Love.

Energies this week will shift mid week as the Sun goes into Taurus on Wednesday April 19, Pluto goes Retrgrade on April 20, Mars goes into Gemini on April 21, and recently Direct Venus is exactly square Saturn on the 21st.

As the Sun goes into Taurus on the 19th, what was initiated during Sun in Aries will now be solidified and made manifest.

Also concentration will be more on the physical world, like your body, nature, home, money and land.

Your 5 senses will be more enlivened and it will be a good time to enjoy food, lovemaking, hot tubs, and catering to your bodily pleasures and comforts.

Earth Day happens during Taurus time of year on April 22, so our Earth home can now use more of our care and concern.

Pluto Retrograde on the 21st will intensify our emotions and energy field, bring out power struggles in some, and most importantly will be a time of potential transformation.  There may be a feeling of rebirth around this date.

Mars in Gemini gives us more motivation to learn and share information, talk, communicate and generally move faster.

Venus recently Direct square Saturn tells us about relationship endings, either ending old dysfunctional relationship patterns or seriously considering ending the relationship.

This is an important year of 2017, when we turn the corner toward fully committing to new world consciousness.

The conversation video with me and David Sanipass is here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_W2WIRHQ5IQ

Till next week,

Open Portals of Change, and Astrology Forecast April 9-15.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 8, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have arrived into the New Chapter.   We let you know a few weeks ago that the Aries New Moon on March 27 was the window out into this new chapter, and that big world events would soon follow.

So this last week America bombed Syria, and as usual found a “good” reason to do so: chemical weapons used on innocent Syrian people.  Yet the week before this atrocity, the USA dropped bombs in Iraq that killed many innocent people too. Now that has been effectively put aside in most minds through media silence.

Throughout history, perpetrators most always have found a “good reason” to kill or otherwise harm people.

Hitler believed he was creating a superior race that would bring progress to the world.

Bush II believed that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction- which did not exist.

Trust me on this-  Killing people in other parts of the world, when one is not really having to defend their country from attackers, has more ulterior motives behind it.

This bombing was a power play intended to show the world, most especially North Korea, Iran, Russia, and China, that the USA is back as the baddest guy in the neighborhood (“Make America Great Again”). It also takes people away from believing Trump and Putin are in a bromance.

Regardless of the reasons, this is the event that takes us into this new chapter, as it will be the event that begins to unhinge Pandora’s lid to its box.

Many events that will shake up the world in many ways will result from this event.

As old age and horrible as this bombing is, now is also a time of opening up the portals to higher consciousness and new ways.

We are waking up now out of our “comfort” zones, seeing more clearly, and getting activated to get moving and get doing.

If you focus on what is opening up for you and us collectively, and not on the world dramas, you will be OK.

Fear, hatreds, and most importantly programmed ways to think and feel, will hold you back and keep you stuck in old ways and old patterns.

There are two ways to go in this new chapter now.  You can get all wrapped up in the world dramas, taking sides, getting into winner versus loser consciousness; or you let the new energies and frequencies take you further into Love and Truth consciousness, and the ways of the Age of Aquarius.

There is a trust and faith necessary to do that:  trust and faith in the Universe, your better self, and your fellow soul traveller.

I know some of you will want to get involved in that old world for perhaps idealistic and altruistic reasons of your own.

Please do not do so if you are prone to losing your detachment, getting overly emotionally involved, feeling much fear or hatred, or getting taken off your new world path and/or your spiritual path.

It is important now to keep the focus on what is truly important.  Continuing our journey of transformation out of old consciousness and old ways, and creating and embracing new consciousness and new ways, is very important now.

Opening your mind and heart to the new light wanting to stream in is an important part of the journey now.

Love and Truth are what are wanting to flower in each of us.  The old energies, patterns, programs, beliefs, paradigms are ready to be released- one step at a time.

As we clear those blocks, there is more room in our inner channels and portals for the new energies to move through.

All we have been taught by society is open for questioning now.  Where we came from and where we are going is open for discussion.

We once believed the world was flat and then believed it was round.  And that level of new discovery is ready for us again.  And many of these new vistas sit inside us as new frequencies, new energetics, new soul pathways.

This week April 8-15, we encounter some major shifts: Mercury Retrograde, Venus Direct, and Full Moon in Libra.

Mercury goes Retrograde on Sunday April 9 at 7:14 PM EDT.  Venus will still be Retrgrade then.  

So from April 9- April 15 both planets will be retrograde.  On April 15 Venus goes direct, at which time only Mercury will be retrograde- until May 3 when it goes back direct again.

So this week ahead may get really unclear at times, especially around relating and relationships, and linear thinking.

You may tend to go back and forth on issues, or want to jump to conclusions too fast.

Do your best to wait and let issues brew longer if possible.  After April 15, when Venus goes Direct, relationship issues and security/home issues will begin to clear up.

But with Mercury still Retrograde, not all issues in all ways will be clear yet.  Be patient and trusting of the process.  Linear bottom line thinking is not as useful during Mercury Retrograde.

And as Venus Retrograde brought a rewind and reflection on relationships and people from the past, Mercury Retrograde also can create dreams, thoughts and in the flesh people coming back from the past.

So you can see the potential pattern:  Moving forward into new worlds and consciousness, while also reflecting on the past.

What from your past and present needs to be released?   What can you take with you on your soul’s journey going forward now?  Let the process unfold to show you the way.

Please do not overthink or try to figure it all out in your head during the retrograde time period.  Be satisfied with processing and going deeper for more insights.

That will help you to know what is best, not just in your head, but also in your heart and soul.

To further shift the energies and view this week, there is a Full Moon in Aries/Libra on April 10/11 at 2:08 AM EDT on the 11th.

Uranus in Aries will be strong in this Full Moon, so there may be some important awakenings that occur this week, shifting us outside of old boxes that have kept us locked up in self defeating thoughts and beliefs. Pluto in Capricorn will also be strong in this Full Moon.  So powerful transformational events and emotions may also erupt this week.

With the Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra in this Full Moon, we are trying to balance being true to ourselves and what we believe in on the one hand; while on the other hand truly listening and caring what is important to someone else.

Finding one’s personal empowerment and independence within a relationship is also a potential issue to be addressed this week.

We are filling up our cups of life now with more energy and action. The greater world is also getting more activated with events and movements.

We are ready for this now.

I will be doing a video conversation with David Lonebear Sanipass on the 15th at 2:43 PM, which David says is a time of cosmic importance. And of course also on the 15th Venus goes Direct.  David and I will be discussing the big shifts in the world and in our personal lives at this powerful time to be alive.  We will make that video available to others soon after.

till next week,

Leo

Getting Ready and Astrology Forecast March 19-25

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on March 18, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Energetically and astrologically, the true New Year begins this Monday the 20th at the Spring Equinox.

The Sun moves into Aries that day at 6:29 AM EDT.  That is the first moment of Spring 2017, when dark and light, yin and yang, male and female are equal. But light, yang, and male energies are now on the rise.

Aries is the sign of new starts and new beginnings; taking action; and being straight forward, direct, and frank. Mars is the planet most associated with Aries, thus Aries can be confrontational, combative, and competitive.

It wants to be #1 and be the first to arrive, as is the sperm who wins the race to the egg to create a new being.

Spring is the perfect time for Aries as it is when buds come through the branches as new growth, and when nature wakes up from the dormancy of Winter.

So on Monday there is the feeling of renewal and beginnings.

All that has happened in the past year has potentially been reviewed and processed during Pisces time of year, which is passing.

That spark of spring this week, however, will be countered by the fact that Monday the 20th is also the beginning of the 4th quarter segment of the lunar cycle.

Renewal and motivation to move forward will not be fullfilled until the Moon catches up with the Sun in Aries at the next New Moon.

So at the time when the Sun moves into Aries for the first moment of spring, the Moon will be getting ready to enter Capriicorn to begin the 4th quarter of the lunar cycle.

The Moon will keep moving through the end of the lunar cycle till Monday the 27th, when the Moon catches up for a New Moon in Aries to erupt into our lives.

That is when the New Year fully begins.

So this week there will be mixed messages, as the first day of spring brings some renewal, but the last quarter Moon keeps us in the lunar cycle begun at the Pisces New Moon of February 26.

So don’t get up on your horse quite yet. Continue to reflect and process, heal and resolve.

With Venus still Retrograde, we can also keep some concentration on heart matters and relationships, while we wait for the strong new beginnings on March 27 at the Aries New Moon.

Our world has changed so much this past year, and many people have been processing those changes, most evidently the changing of the guard for the government of the USA.

Many people were shocked and then angry and depressed because of the results of the Presidential election, and the huge shifts brought on by the new regime.

But at the first of Spring this week, and much more so at the New Moon in Aries next week, it will be time to let go of the emotional attachment to those election results.

In fact, it will be time to do your best to let go of any attachments that keep you stuck in the past battling your internal demons.

It will be time to move forward even if all issues have not been healed or resolved.

And relationship issues are ones most likely to be unsettled at the first of Spring as Venus stays Retrograde until April 15.

A respected Native American friend of mine, who intently studies the mathematics and movements of our cosmos, shared with me recently that on April 15 at 2:43 PM EST there will be a significant turning point in our galaxy..

As that coincides with Venus going direct that day, he and I will be making a video on that day discussing the state of our world and Universe. I plan on sharing that video with all of you.

For now as we finish up the old solar year, continue to release that which is blocking your path toward fully being in this New Chapter of your life.  These blocks may be inside of you, in the form of inner programming or beliefs and attitudes, and/or outside of you in the form of jobs, relationships, homes, etc.

We are almost ready to move forward for this New Year in the New Chapter of our lives.

Yet anything we stubbornly hold onto now will put baggage into our lives that can weigh us down or even be too heavy to move forward with.

So do your best to release or at least start the process of releasing that which has already died in your heart and soul.

And since Venus is Retrograde you know it is a good time to get deeply in touch with the relationship patterns in your life that are holding you back from moving more freely in this New Year in the New Chapter of your life.

Maybe it is an old pattern that goes back to an old hurt or trauma from a previous relationship, even as far back as your childhood or even past lives.

Can you work that out with the person who you now have the old pattern with?  Do you need counseling?

Or is it soon time to end the relationship, as your “contract” is up and it is time to move on?

On another front, with the greater world in view, it is obvious that we have entered a time when our true values are, or need to be, brought to the surface of our consciousness.

What kind of a world do you want to live in?  Are you being the kind of person who lives in a way that reflects those ideals?

What stops you from living as you believe?

Are you paralyzed by fear?  Are you angry a lot of the time without knowing the true source of that anger?  And if you know the source of that anger, have you found a way to express your feelings or let go of the anger?

Identifying with being a victim will hold you back from living your life alive, authentic and empowered.

You can be loving and sensitive and still be empowered. Do you know how? If not find out how. The Universe will assist you in that process.

We will need as many people as possible now to help create the kind of world we want for the Age of Aquarius.

Believe me there are plenty of people who want to keep it just as it is or even take us back to how it used to be.

And if you remain disempowered or asleep at the wheel of your life, you are complicit in holding us back and keeping us locked up in a world that is soul dead already.

Go where there is new life now, as we move toward the Spring Equinox and even more importantly toward the New Moon in Aries on March 27 and the major turning point of April 15.

Know that the Universe is behind you with wind at your back for moving forward soon.

In the meantime use these days now to process and release and say goodbye as difficult as that may be.

When you are aligned with your own inner light and the light of the Universe, what you decide to do will be ultimately good for all concerned, even if causes some pain in the beginning.

This is meant to be an especially important year, and we need to allow our true and authentic Self to be actualized.

Being who you “should” be is not a good excuse anymore. Being who you “should” be keeps the old ways alive and dulls your true Self.

We need all hands on board now.

Till next week

Bringing in the Eclipses with Mercury Retrograde and Astrology Forecast September 13-19

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 12, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week will bring some big energy shifts as important planetary movements show up.

There is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo Sunday September 13 at 2:41 AM EDT; there is a spiritually oriented opposition between Jupiter and Neptune on September 17; and Mercury goes Retrograde also on September 17 at 2:09 PM EDT.

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo is the first of two eclipses this September.  The second one will be a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries on September 27.

Eclipses generally shake up our usual rhythms and normal way of being, allowing change to come through.   This first eclipse, the Solar Eclipse, is a New Moon with much more power than the usual New Moon as it is an eclipse.   The Moon stands in between the Sun and Earth, effectively blocking out the light from the Earth.

Our ancestors of course would often get really freaked out as day turned to night at the wrong time.   This Solar Eclipse is only partial, and as such the Sun’s rays will not be totally blocked.  And here in the United States it will be nighttime during the eclipse, so it will not  show here.

Since this Eclipse is a New Moon in Virgo,  issues of bringing things into some kind of order or perfection will be swirling around our lives.  Being in dreamy, idealistic places will not last.  Virgo requires down to Earth realism.

Virgo often goes further than mere realism, and shows up as skepticism or just plain disbelief.    It is easy with Virgo to get into a “glass half empty” state of mind, which stops us from expecting too much and then getting disappointed.

So keep your feet on the ground, so to speak, as you go through this eclipse, not allowing yourself to get too swept up or overly excited about anything.  If you do, you will soon get knocked back down to “reality”.

Virgo also brings us to a more humble and simple attitude so we can see up close, without any frills or big egos. From that grounded humble place, we are more able to see what is wrong or what is broken.  And then we are better able to fix or heal what has gone wrong.

In the global world, events will take us out of any fantasies or bubbles we collectively find ourselves in.   We will be brought down to the reality of the economy, for instance.  Already we are seeing the Bears come out to slow down the global stock markets.

This comedown will continue until there is a crash that will precipitate the transformation of our global economic system, so that we can rebuild with the needs of all the people in mind.

Bernie Sanders is touching a nerve here in America, as he preaches about how the few hold so much of the wealth in the world.

How can any economic system be right when some people earn billions every year and others earn minimum wage of 7+ dollars an hour. Or as in other countries in the world sell their daughters or their kidneys so they can feed their families.

The trickle down theory of economics has soundly been shown to not work!  So as the economic structure of the world deteriorates, know that this is just part of a world wide transformation that will make the world more fair and just.

Maybe the stock markets will not go too far down this late summer and autumn, but if not they will soon. Reserve currency changing from the dollar to some other currency is what will likely be a major catalyst for global economic change.

And our Superpower status will change in other ways too.  The balance of power in the world is shifting too, as China, India, Russia, and Iran will continue to get stronger.    Hopefully there does not need to be big battles with China, Iran or Russia in order to usher in this change, but that could very well happen.

And it is more and more likely that Israel will be in the center of the big change coming.

Recent aspects to its natal Mars, the nuclear deal with Iran, and the Blood Moon on September 27 happening on a Jewish holiday promise likely big change for Israel.  Four Blood Moons in a row over the last 18 months have all happened on Jewish holidays.

This will not bring a messiah or herald the end of the world as many fundamentalist religious people are promising, but major conflict concerning Israel is likely this late summer and autumn.

The USA, since the Cardinal Grand Cross in 2014 crossed its natal Sun and Saturn, have had many aspects of Uranus and Pluto to that same natal Sun and Saturn.  And Pluto is still there affecting the well being of the USA.

So the USA can expect major events over the next year or so that will reshape how we think and live our lives.

Refugees from Syria, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, and other places where major military conflicts are driving people from their homes, will continue to flood into Europe and the USA, changing the culture of these countries.

And the Islamic State continues to change boundaries between countries as it has gobbled up land in Iraq, Syria, Libya, and Egypt already.

The world is transforming in big ways and that process will be accelerated now. And mid week, as Mercury goes Retrograde and Jupiter opposes Neptune, there may be greater confusion on the state of the world.

Mercury Retrograde, beginning on the 17th, will shift our mental processes as it always does. It will stay until October 9, at which time it will go back Direct again.

As it is going Retrograde in the middle of two eclipses, we can expect that we will be brought through a time when we will be taken off our usual balance.

The Mercury Retrograde part of that unbalance will mainly affect our mental state.  When Mercury goes Retrograde, our usual mental agendas and paradigms are shifting, as our way of perceiving is in flux.

That is why it is always recommended not to make big decisions or stage big events during Mercury Retrograde.

I know many of you became aware of this need not to jump into things while Venus was Retrograde.  After it went back Direct on September 6, our hearts began to see more clearly what was really going on in certain relationships.

If we had jumped to conclusions or jumped into certain relationships, we would have put ourselves into something unhealthy or into something not really right for us.

Now close behind that Venus Retrograde we have Mercury Retrograde and the eclipses.  So stay on your toes, so to speak, and do not dig in or hold onto anything too tightly.  Over attachment to anything is not a good idea now, as the speed of change is strong now.

And Jupiter opposite Neptune this week will help you to surrender undo need for control.  That aspect is good for spiritual connection, for synchronicity and connection with the Universe.  Magic is alive if you are awake and alive.

But you will need some degree of trust so you can let the process of life unfold as it is meant to unfold.

Keep your mind and heart open to new ways of thinking and seeing.

There is a major portal opening now, bringing a flood of love and truth our way. Let that flood help you to release old ways that are not right for you anymore.

Often we are unaware of how much our society and family have programmed us to see ourselves, others and life in a certain way.    Let those preconceived notions organically leave your mind, so you can open to Truth, which will help you be more free.

Be open now to new truths, which are not sitting in Galaxies beyond our comprehension, but are sitting right before our eyes here up close in reality.

Did you ever walk into a room that you have walked through many times before, and all of a sudden see a picture or some object you thought you had never seen before? Then someone tells you it had always been there. You just had not put your attention there before.  You see it now because you are ready to see it.

That is how some truths can come to you now, right before your eyes now open to see.

Also I have a new YouTube video for the eclipses for you to see.

And my wife Deborah has just started a blog will bring to you a greater sense of life’s sacredness and our human connection to our Earth, Feminine mysteries and that which brings us all together in unity.

Till next week,

Leo

Venus Direct and Astrology Forecast September 6-12

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Leo

Cleansing and Clearing and Astrology Forecast August 30- September 5

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 29, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this on Saturday August 29, we are moving through a gentle Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces today.

This is a healing full moon, and healing is something many of us are in need of now, after a rough recent time period.

You should be able to feel this full moon all the way to Monday August 31, then afterwards we move down through the waning half of the lunar cycle that was begun on August 15 at the Leo New Moon.

Neptune is conjunct the Moon in Pisces and Jupiter is conjunct the Sun in Virgo, making it a rather spiritual full moon.

It is a good time now to let go and surrender to the natural flow of the Universe, without agenda or too much drive to accomplish. You may feel a bit spacey and unfocused at times, but that will help you to let go instead of pushing too hard.

Yes the Virgo part of this lunation requires us to put things in order, but that should be done as gently and stressless as possible.  Pisces and Neptune require flow and ease.

This full moon will put us all into the right frame of mind for the next couple of weeks leading up to the eclipses.

We are coming down into a time period of cleaning up, fixing, healing, imagining, and preparing for the intensity of the eclipses, the first one on September 13- A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo.

Before that happens we are also finishing up a Venus Retrograde cycle.  Venus goes back Direct on September 6.

It is time between now and then to find some resolution around heart issues.  There has been so much intensity surrounding relationships since Venus went Retrograde in late July.

So many of us have had all our weaknesses, wounds, and traumas around relationship patterns come up to the light of our consciousness.  The pains of the past, including early family issues, have been thrown into our faces.

The emotional reactions for some of us have been very powerful and disconcerting.  We may have thought that certain issues were already resolved or healed, but found out there was more work to be done.

If we want health in our relationships, relationships of all kinds, then it is essential that we clean out old dramas and traumas from the emotional and mental root or core of the issues.

You may have attracted someone into your life who triggered a pattern or ego story that was originally created to cope with a wound or trauma from the past.

It is necessary as we work out the issue with someone or let someone go, that we get to core or root causes.

If for example you find that your current relationship has shown a pattern of someone being unavailable and someone else begging for attention and love, you must trace that pattern as far back as you can and as deep in your soul as possible.

Perhaps a parent or previous relationship started up this pattern. Or perhaps a past life interaction did so.

Or maybe a natal astrological pattern shows a difficulty with receiving love.

Getting to the core of the emotional issue will help you to release the trauma, heal the trauma as best you can, and reopen your heart to trust that a sharing of love can happen for you.

As painful as this Venus Retrograde period is for some people, keep in mind that the difficulties came your way in order for you to heal and transform old patterns so you can better grow and open to new ways of relating.

After September 6, when Venus goes back direct, you will start to gain more clarity, resolution, and direction in relationships.

Hold off until after that time before jumping to any conclusions or making any important definite plans around heart issues.

Remember that Mercury Retrograde tends to get us mentally off our usual track, Venus Retrograde gets our hearts off their usual track.

After it goes direct our hearts begin to get more clear, to integrate what happened during the Retrograde period, and to find a new normal for our hearts.

All this relationship clearing will happen just in time to meet up with the eclipses.

Venus also rules money and financial resources. That is the Taurus side of Venus, as Venus is the ruling planet of Taurus.

So money issues are needing to be worked out now too. And of course in the global framework the stock markets around the world have been in crash mode.

China’s rapidly falling stock market and economy has had a huge effect on global economic stability.

In the bigger picture there is a realignment of power sharing and resource sharing happening in the world.

The message by Bernie Sanders is resonating with so many people because it is obvious we need to transform our global economic system so that it will be fair and equitable to all the human family.   Global Economic domination by Big Corporate and its marriage partner Big Government are taking away freedoms and the ability to live a comfortable life for individual humans.

This inequity does not come from the Universe or God/Goddess, but created by humans who have the ability to choose and create as we see fit.

In an Age of Aquarius individual humans gain more power and responsibility for our own world. We become stewards of our Earth and its creatures- not dominators but stewards healing and protecting the planet.

Once we have sufficiently awakened on a collective level and broken the chains locking up our minds, souls, hearts and bodies by programming from the Military/Economic paradigm that runs the world; then we will be ready to more fully create a world in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

The downfall of our current inequitable economic system and the breakdown of the old power structure in the world will leave sufficient opening for new energies of love and truth to help us create anew.

These breakdowns are getting more and more immanent and each of us will need to adjust our lives in accordance with the changes. I am not a financial expert at all, but I would advise everyone to not be dependent on conventional wisdom or traditional institutions anymore.

I am not sure of the timing, as people can create life support systems, so to speak, to delay the inevitable, as we have done with the financial bailouts and printing of money we do not have. But Nature always wins out eventually.

I do believe, however, that the eclipse storms of September will at least continue to break down the old world and bring us new ideas and ways for a new world.

Keep up your meditation and spiritual practices so you will know that all is happening in accordance with the Universe’s natural cycles and energies, with nothing to fear.

You will be in the right places at the right times if you can stay aware, awake, and centered in your deeper soul and the Source.

We are about to move even more rapidly into the energies of the Age of Aquarius.   Keep in mind that all the difficulties we are going through now are to get us prepared for the transformational winds ahead.

You are releasing that which is not aligned with your authentic soul and its destiny now.

If you notice that many more conventional people seem to not be as affected as you are now, remember that you are on a different path as a pioneer into the new world.

As such you will be more prepared for what is coming, and not as governed by fear and panic when the bigger changes come our way.

Till next week,

Leo
