Relationship Balancing and Astrology Forecast March 5-11

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 4, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last weekend we passed through a powerful Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces, while at the same time experiencing a “breaking things open” aspect: Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries.

As Jupiter in Libra was exactly opposite that conjunction, relationship issues come more strongly into our awareness.   And the Cardinal T-square of Uranus, Pluto, and Jupiter was triggered in the process, motivating Transformation in the world and in our personal lives.

We are truly 100% over the hump and now into a New Chapter of our lives, collectively and personally.

Collectively, the presidential election in the USA was the first signpost showing us a new path we are taking.  Eclipse Season this winter of 2017 has been bringing waves of change that are sweeping us faster forward on our journey.

As we look out into the greater world we can see many great challenges ahead.   There are two very different USA cultures that are clashing quite hatefully with one another.

Neither represents by itself what we need to move toward on our journey into the Age of Aquarius.

“Conservative” and “liberal”, or in reality all opposites, will need to find a way to join in circular unity, for the greater good of the community, in order to have a healthy and whole human condition in the Age of Aquarius.

And we are a long way from that condition.  And this is not just in the USA.  All over the world a new paradigm must be realized.  That new paradigm is about all the distinct parts of a whole being recognized and honored. All the opposites are valued in their intrinsic nature: male/female, yin/yang, dark/light, etc.

And in so doing we are building a Diversity within Unity world.

That means that even in our personal relationships we need to move beyond the idea that one person’s way is superior to someone else’s way, that someone is inherently better than someone else in value.

We will disagree of course, but respecting  the other person and their viewpoint is important. If you cannot do that, then that relationship is not one you should be in.

And now we get help with relationship issues as Venus is now Retrograde, and will stay that way until April 15 when it goes back Direct.

Yes that means that relationships and heart matters will be in the spotlight of your life, and you can expect some reflection on how relationships were in your past.

You may have strong memories of those people who used to have importance in your life,  and those memories may come from waking thoughts and feelings about people, but also may come through dreams and “in the flesh” appearances.

You may also have strong memories of how current relationships used to be back in the day.

And you will be working on relationhip issues more than usual.

But there are other parts to this Venus Retrograde.  Venus is a strong symbol for the feminine principle, and in Aries the feminine is bold, forceful, and stands up strong and brave for what it believes.

Athena is an archetypal Goddess who is very Aries in nature.  She is a warrioress, a woman born from the head of Zeus, and the head is the part of the body that Aries “rules”.

Venus in Aries does not bow down to anyone, and now in our world it seems like women are being called upon to assert themselves more and to not take abuse or “second class citizen” treatment.

Degrading of the Feminine is most prevalent in other cultures where women cannot attend school or vote or drive a car, or are sold into sex.

And even in America, women are often not yet paid equally for doing the same jobs as men, and they are also often not treated as equal in value to men.

But keep in mind that many women have bought into the old paradigm too, so the transformation of belief systems and values is for all.

Instead of putting blame on one gender or another, it is important to realize that we all “signed” onto a paradigm contract that now needs to be torn up and a new one realized.

In the old paradigm, so-called male values have been more highly honored in cultures all around the world.

The building of big militaries, the ambition to get rich, the “dog eat dog” mentality is of great importance in most cultures of this world.

“Survival of the fittest” mentality has dysfunctionally grown into power abuses, domination, war, and “us versus them” belief systems.

There is arguably not enough empathy, compassion, or sense of connection in our collective consciousness and cultural models.

True spiritual values that are not mainly based on rules and commandments and superiority are not valued enough either.

There is fighting or going to war for one’s God that is happening in many parts of this world too.

Being in survival and outer directed takes up so much energy in our world.

And the greatest of all “feminine” values, Love is sadly lacking in so much of life.

So it is time to reflect on and act on bringing the Feminine values to a stronger place in our cultures and hearts now.

And Venus in Aries represents the power of the Feminine and standing up tall for Feminine values.

All of us, male and female need to incorporate more love and care and connection into our lives now.

The proliferation of nuclear weapons, bombs, pornography and electronic devices show us the lesser priority shown for  love, intimacy and true deep connection in our world and daily lives.

This week after the big Solar Eclipse New Moon, we are led up to a Full Moon in Virgo on Sunday March 12.  We will look at that more closely next week.

So we are now still moving through Eclipse Season and will be until March 27 at the New Moon in Aries.

So now we process what has been happening this Eclipse Season, keep our eye on the New Chapter and what it is unfolding into. And we keep releasing that which was part of that old chapter that we will not be taking with us going forward.

With Venus being retrograde in Aries till April 15, in the process of improving our relationships, we also will need to strike better balance between independence and being true to oneself on the one hand, with being in relaionship and united on the other hand.

Doing so brings us more into Diversity within Unity in our own lives, as it is important to be true to our authentic self while also being unified in relationship.

Neither person should sacrifice their integrity of being in order to make a relationship work.

Till next week

Leo

Rising Up and Astrology Forecast January 29- February

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 28, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We just moved into a new lunar cycle as there was a New Moon in Aquarius on Friday January 27.  It is a stronger New Moon than usual as Mars went into Aries relatively close to the same time.

That means there is a strong movement forward into new beginnings.  If you have been putting off some decision or some task or some project or some adventure, etc.; now it is time to strongly consider moving forward with it.

This lunar cycle will be an important one, not only because Mars will be in action-oriented Aries the whole time; but also because there are two eclipses coming during the month ahead.

The first eclipse is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on February 10.  The second eclipse is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

Those eclipses and Mars in Aries promise lots of action, important world events, and a large shaking up of the status quo and business as usual.

There has been a changing of the guard from the Obama presidential administration to the Trump presidential team.

Those two administrations are very different, so the frequency and tone of government affairs has been vastly transformed.  And of course that translates into changes in the human affairs of people in our country and world.

Trump’s presidency is part of a greater movement in the western world toward nationalism.  Movement toward nationalism pushes countries toward firmer borders and toward a more restricted sense of what it means to be part of the country.

The last big wave of nationalism happened in the 1930’s.  That was when Germany and Hitler came to power.

That nationalism believed in keeping Germany’s people pure with German arian blood.

So the horror and genocide perpetrated on the Jews was part of that quite distorted form of nationalism.

And as other countries also became more nationalistic they firmed up their borders and saw those not of the same tribe or nation as enemies.  War often comes with waves of nationalism, and in the case of the 1930’s that meant World War II.

Germany was an extreme case of what nationalism can birth, as killing off a people within one’s borders is not the usual manifestation.

But you can see in the United States now a movement to eliminating Muslim influence and keeping out immigrants from Mexico by building a giant wall.

There is a movement toward elevating white caucasian influence in America and throughout much of western Europe.

Now of course there is a need to have a healthy dialogue around all this from different perspectives and opinions.

Keeping immigration legal and keeping terrorism out of a country has merit if done properly and compassionately and rationally.

Better defining of what makes a country true to its origins can be a valid consideration also.

But hatred and bigotry are never OK no matter what.

So as the Eclipse Season begins now at the Aquarius New Moon, and intensifies as we approach the actual eclipses starting on February 10; there will be a powerful emotional backlash to the recent executive orders of Donald Trump.

What we need is a rational respectful discussion of the important issues now facing our country and world, but with  the sharp split between red and blue cultures in the USA, and the growing wave of hatred and demonization of  those who are different; it is not likely to happen.

So keep in mind that Donald Trump is not ruining our country and world. That gives him way too much power that he does not possess.

He is just a part of a much larger wave of change in our country and world; and each one of us needs to stay awake and aware, needs to speak up for what we believe in, and have some faith that all is happening for a reason.

Donald Trump is not bigger than the Universe and is not more powerful than “Of the people, by the people and for the people”

The King of England lost to the revolution of the American colonies in the late 1700’s.  Nixon could not stop the 60’s revolution and was impeached as the unjust war in Viet Nam ended. The killings of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy did not stop the revolution either.

The people spoke loud and the world changed in alignment with the movement and values of the Universe.

And that is what can happen now too if we do not let our identification with being a victim take over.

We each need to honor our authentic self, and to trust that self, the Universe and our  human soul family to come together and create the Age of Aquarius.

It may have been dawning in the ’60s and ’70s, but it is now getting ready for manifestation.

Yes there are some really rough times ahead, but those rough times will bring with them much magic, much love, much awakening, and much joy from connection with each other and the Earth and Universe.

So this week begins a new lunar cycle on the way to February’s eclipses.   And Mars  now in Aries will be joined by Venus in Aries this coming Friday the 3rd.

That means spiritual warriors, both male (Mars) and female (Venus), are ready to rise up and fight for what we believe in (Aries).  This is no time to wring our hands and feel sorry for ourselves and our horrible fate with a Trump administration.

We are ready for the challenge.

On Thursday the 2nd of February is Imbolc, the sacred half way turning point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.   The groundhog is the modern representation of that time.

Imbolc was celebrated by our ancestors as an initiation time for humans.   The fiery Goddess Brigid was honored that day and is symbolic of that day.

We can use her fiery Feminine spirit now to initiate us into this New Chapter in human life on Earth.

Till next week,

Leo

On the Verge and Astrology Forecast February 22-28

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 21, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We approach the beginnings of a most important portal for humanity.   This portal opens March/April and will lift us up off whatever plateaus we have been resting upon.

Last year at this time we approached an Eclipse Season with another Uranus/Pluto exact square and a most powerful Cardinal Grand Cross.

We all know how much our personal lives and the world changed then, and how we were thrust into a new chapter or season of our lives, on the way to the doorway into an Age  of Aquarius.

This passing winter has brought rest for some, dark nights of the soul for others, yet it is important to know that whatever “new normal” we may be attempting to hold onto is an illusion.

The changes last year are only the beginning, and now as we come ever closer to a portal into greater transformation, we are being prepared on all levels of our being,

I do  not anticipate any Earth shattering world events to erupt this coming week, nor should you expect anything monumental to shift for your personal life this week.

Remember it is Sun in Pisces time of year, so there are more inner ghosts to face than outer actions to take or events to experience.

There is some counter to that inner work because Venus and especially Mars have just entered forceful Aries.

But it will be until very late February or more likely early March before we will feel the strength of this transformational  portal opening.

Then Jupiter, Venus and Mars will all take turns triggering the Uranus/Pluto square, in anticipation of the last exact square of those two giant forces of transformation and healing.

That last square will be on March 16, and will be closely followed by a Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces on the day of Spring Equinox 2015.

That Solar Eclipse on Spring Equinox is an important facet of the signature for the spring this year.   The portal gates will opening then, and the remainder of spring and summer 2015 will bring tornadoes of deeply sweeping energies of change.

In your personal life whatever has been left undone from the changes you experienced last year, will be furthered soon.

If you were without much change lat year you will likely be experiencing it this year, especially if you are an Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn born in the middle degrees of those signs.

Any other planets or angles of your natal chart, like the Ascendant or Midheaven, that are in the middle degrees of those signs will also we greatly affected.

And if you were born in late Pisces, Gemini, Virgo, or Sagittarius; or have planets in the late degrees of those mutable signs- you will also be greatly affected by the Solar Eclipse in Pisces.

It will be soon be time to let go of any security blankets that have been symbolically protecting us from our true soul paths in life.

It is becoming more and more important to stop faking it, to end any masquerades that hide your authentic self from view, even from your own view.

There is little time left to sit on the fence between a polluted mainstream that promises “normality” and “safety” on the one hand, and a blossoming new consciousness that is creating a new world on the other hand.

There is an old world of Monsanto and other Corporations wanting profit before all else,; corrupt world leaders who hide truths and are desperate to hold privilege; a conditioning of minds and hearts to embrace  the societal games of power struggles for status and wealth; and daily trivial pursuits of more and more shopping.

We are also conditioned to believe we need to build bigger and bigger Military, to spend inordinate amounts of money in that regard, while people suffer and starve all over the world.

If you cannot truly believe that we can build a better world in alignment with the Age of Aquarius, then I know which side of the fence you will fall from.

The coming world changes will be devastating for those who have not landed on the New World side of the fence.   They will only know the battles for survival, the fights with the enemies, the needs to prop up the economy, the dominating hands of order against the growing changes.

On the New World Side of the fence there is a sense of meaning for the coming changes, there is light to lead the way, there is consciousness and frequencies to help us to evolve and create a new world,  there are fellow travelers to build family with, there is a  sense of purpose; there is magic and synchronicity and knowing of the connections that bring all into wholeness. There is love and truth to hold us together.

For this coming week, the last week of February 2015, it is a good time to gather ourselves and our lives, to find gratitude for what we appreciate in our lives, to go deeper in our meditations and prayers, to give strong intent to healing our wounds and traumas as best we can.

There is little indication, outside of the recent New Moon in Aquarius, for big steps forward.  That is because Saturn is strong with its square to the Sun in Pisces on Monday and its trines to Venus and  Mars mid week. And the more flowing Sun in Pisces conjuncts its ruling planet Neptune on Wednesday.

Except for a mercurial minds moving fast with Moon in Gemini Wednesday and Thursday, it is a week of slo-mo.

Perhaps late week will bring some transformational rumblings with Jupiter making minor aspect to Pluto, triggering the Uranus/Pluto square.

Much more intensity on the way in March.

Till next week,

Leo

I will create a new YouTube video in mid March to talk about all the changes with Spring Eclipse Season 2015.

Aquarius Consciousness and Astrology Forecast February 15-21

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 14, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

For the early part of this coming week, as we move through the darkening last quarter of the Moon’s cycle, the energies are slow and yin-ward, perhaps rather dreary for some.   These are the “dog days” of winter, seemingly endless days of darkness and cold.

But on Wednesday this coming week there is a shift, one that will bring more active energies, more of a sense we are moving forward, for better or worse.

On Wednesday February 18 there is a New Moon in Aquarius, beginning the lunar cycle that will lead us to the day of the Spring Equinox.

Also on the 18th the Sun moves into Pisces, which is the last sign the Sun moves through before it enters Aries at the Spring Equinox.

On the 19th Mercury gets back up to its normal Direct speed, signifying an end to Mercury Retrograde’s influence on our mind and lives.

And also on the 19th the Chinese year of the Sheep or Goat begins, a New Year for many east Asian inhabitants.

And also on the 19th Mars moves into Aries, the sign Mars loves to be in, where its active, forceful, initiating energies have a home.

So expect the coming week to bring stirrings of awakening and movement forward.

The New Moon in head strong Aquarius, and Mercury getting back up to Direct speed promise a clearer mind and a better sense of mental sanity.  It is a good time for new ideas also and a time when thinking inventively will be rewarded.  The Aquarius New Moon is also a time for greater social consciousness, group connections and global awareness.

Mars in Aries will be joined through conjunction with Venus in Aries late in the week, giving more impetus to fresh starts, fresh thinking, and a stronger sense of the great change coming our way soon.

Some people may already begin to feel the winds of Spring Eclipse Season 2015 blowing in this week or soon after.

Events in the news may also show us “previews” of what will blow up into bigger issues and events later.

In your personal life you may also begin to see the beginning seeds planted for what will more fully bloom in your life during the upcoming Spring Eclipse Season 2015.

But keep in mind, even as you get more energy for moving forward this week, that we have time before the intensity of transformational change truly erupts into our lives.

This waiting time is signified by the Sun moving into Pisces on the 18th.    That Sun in Pisces, which lasts until March 20 at the Spring Equinox, brings us through a month of surrender to what is deeper than our waking mind can usually fathom.

Pisces, ruled by the God of the ocean Neptune, is best experienced while in the flow of life, allowing the tides and currents to take us where our consciousness needs to go.

We may need to experience some ghosts of the past so we can reintegrate that which we have left behind, and/or so we can better heal from wounds or traumas from our past during Sun in Pisces.

Our consciousness is getting prepared for the big changes coming soon.

And as Mars and Venus go into Aries this coming week, they are getting us closer to that change.

During the first half of March the last exact pass of Uranus square Pluto will be in the spotlight.  Venus and Mars will trigger that square of these huge transformational planets in the first and second week of March, and then on March 16 Uranus and Pluto make that  last exact square to one another.

And of course all that is followed by two very strong Total Eclipses relatively soon after.

It is most important now, if you are inclined to tune into world events, to watch what is stirring in the world.

Of grave importance is the potential nuclear deal with Iran. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is speaking in front of the USA Congress on March 3.  He did not appropriately consult with President Obama first and his message is very likely to be against making a deal with Iran.

President Obama, in trying to make this deal, in improving relations with Cuba, and in his comments of how the Christian Crusades rivaled in butchery with the ISIS atrocities, is moving in alignment with the New Age in Aquarius.

Equality and Diversity within Unity are in alignment with the Age of Aquarius and Obama’s recent activities.

President Obama, so connected with the soul of Abraham Lincoln, is beginning to listen to his “better angels” as his time as President is coming to an end.

The “power structure” of our world is changing now with the growth of China, Arab/Muslim culture, Brazil, and India, etc.  Russia is having serious problems with the western world, and Europe with Greece’s recent election of a socialist leaning Prime Minister is facing severe challenges to its unity and economy.

And of course the USA is also going to be severely challenged with its economy also this year.

As we look out at our world, one that does not have in its mainstream a sense of holism, unity, interconnectedness, true spirituality, valuing of truth telling, honoring of the Earth and all its creatures as sacred,  we can see a need for immense transformation into a new paradigm for thinking, relating and living.

We are all connected as one family of human and creature on Earth, and only with that deeper awareness can we hope to somewhat gracefully enter this Age of Aquarius.

So there is importance in finding common ground with Iran in this meeting of differing cultures.  If we do not, we can expect world conflicts that will bring much misery to so many on the Earth.

In your own consciousness and life there is probably nothing more important than leaving a paradigm of superiority/inferiority, of some being innately better than others.

We may like our way better for us, but we must accept that not everyone is made the same way with the same cultural orientations or persuasions.

The whole world does not have to be governed by a democratic/capitalistic model for living.

Nor does the whole world need to be Christian or Muslim or Republican or Democrat or heterosexual or homosexual.   And none is by nature better than the other.  It is all in the “eye of the beholder”.

Yes we need to have a world of unity and all people have in common a need of safety, food and water, love, etc.

But we do not all have to wear the same “uniform'”.  There are “many roads to Rome”, many faces of human or of the “god-force”.

Diversity within Unity is a big part of the new paradigm for living on Earth in an Age of Aquarius.

And for this week you can get your life motor running,  revive your mental adeptness, and begin preparing your consciousness for great change ahead.

Till next week,

Leo

Mercury Direct, Spring Equinox, and Astrology Forecast March 17-23

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 16, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting tides this week.   I know many of you are ready, as the last few weeks have been emotionally and mentally difficult.

This coming week, Mercury finally goes back Direct into more sanity, and Spring Equinox opens its beginning blossoms of  light and heat.

Yes, I know this was an especially challenging Mercury Retrograde for so many, coming at the end of Winter, during Pisces‘ emotional confusion and hurt.

But this Sunday March 17 at 4:03 PM EDT, Mercury does go back direct, so clarity and sanity begin to return.  It may take several days for you to get back to “normal” however, though perhaps your old “normal” default position has shifted over the last few weeks.   Many had serious glitches come up that shifted their plans; others are just now getting ready to make plans or decisions that were not so easy to get clear about over the last few weeks.

The depth of difficulty that Mercury Retrograde brought this time, signifies to me the potential power of transformational change coming this spring during the Spring Eclipse Season, which is less than a month away.

It seems that we have been “clearing the decks” of remnants of past memories, patterns, wounds, and phases of our lives, bringing resolution to a fading chapter of our lives, and preparing ourselves for waves of change we may not fully know quite yet.

Following Mercury going retrograde Sunday the 17th, Spring Equinox is Wednesday March 20 at 7:02 AM EDT.   Spring Equinox is the beginning of Sun in Aries.   And at that moment when the Equinox occurs, as the Sun goes into Aries, there is equality between light and dark, yin and yang, male and female.

But right after that moment, light, yang, male energies begin to get stronger.  The Aries force of new life erupts, and soon new leaves will push through the tree branches.  This yang force continues to get stronger and stronger, until at Summer Solstice it is at its greatest abundance.

So Aries is the fire of force and ignition.   It is pioneering spirit, action, sperm racing to the egg, the realization of “I AM”.  Aries will fight like a warrior for its individuality, independence, and for what it believes in.  Aries thrives on challenge, the ram butts heads in competition and conflict.  Aries is straight forward and direct, frank and honest.  Its downsides can be selfishness, dominance, and lack of sensitivity and orientation to relationship and social skills.

So get ready for the rising of spirit, but remember this is just the first force of renewed life; movement forward will not be rapid acceleration yet.  But you should be able to feel the shift, even if nature here in the western hemisphere does not yet give us spring weather in many places.

So this week, Mercury goes direct on Sunday March 17, Spring Equinox is on Wednesday March 20.  Tides are turning, more feelings of hope are rising.

Even more fiery energy is added this week when Venus goes into Aries on Thursday March 21, and a chaotically active Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries opens up on Friday March 22.

Venus is leaving sacrificial tendencies in Pisces, and now is more bold and assertive in Aries. People will tend to want to speak their truth and assert their needs more in relationships. If you have been holding back your truth, this week begin a good period of time to be frank and honest about your needs.

Mars conjunct Uranus in Aries could bring actions that release you from limitations and liberate you.   Rebellious tendencies will be stronger, and revolutionary movements will get stronger.   Conflict may break out in personal relationships and in the world.

Remember that we are warming up this week for a most powerful Spring season, as there will be 3 eclipses and a Uranus square Pluto aspect.  The first eclipse will be on April 25, but the Eclipse Season will burst into our lives no later than the New Moon in Aries on April 10.  The Eclipse Season will be felt all the way to Summer Solstice, at least.

In the greater world, expect conflict to arise and the USA to flex its military muscle this spring.   Jupiter and Mars will both conjunct the USA natal Mars this spring, and combined with the eclipses and Uranus square Pluto, we can expect intensified power struggles and even open conflict erupting between the USA and other nations.

Our violent use of drones against other countries and threatened against those in our own country is getting more public attention now.  Do we want to be a world bully?   Do we not recognize how many innocent people we have killed in other countries in order to protect our way of life?  And is it not about time we got more serious about ridding our world of nuclear weapons?

How can we expect other countries like Iran and North Korea to not have nuclear weapons, when we have thousands and are the only nation on Earth to have used them: killing about 300,000 civilian people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II? We also have helped Israel to develop a strong nuclear arsenal also, yet tell their adversary Iran they cannot have them or we will use military action against them.

We have negative karma to work out around these issues of violent dominance, and only our humble atonement and actions toward equality and world peace will help heal our Earth and human community.

Our world and American life is about to transform in a most powerful way over the next year or so, beginning this Spring 2013.

It is most important for all of us to clear out programming from families and society that keep us in unhealthy patterns, in fear, in ego control.   Our Souls, our Higher Self want to be more free to be the voice we listen to, we respond to.  Only by cleansing and releasing the blocks of toxins and hurts, the resentments and envies, the victim consciousness, the power and control issues, can we most fully open to the light that is working so hard to move into our lives.

Each of us is ready to grow, to progress, to evolve.   Holding onto old patterns, old ways, old habits that keep us clinging to tattered security blankets is needing to be broken.   It is becoming time to come alive, to spread our wings, to more fully engage with Life.

See you next week,

Leo

Getting it Together and Astrology Forecast for February 5-12

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on February 4, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

A few weeks ago we wrote of a perfect storm brewing, one that would open a huge transformational doorway for us all in 2012.  That storm would likely be at its greatest intensity during the eclipse season this coming spring of 2012.   We let you know that a war with Iran and a big challenge with the economy would be in the center of the storm.

Well now the intensity around Iran is already beginning to build.  USA defense secretary Leon Panetta this week was quoted in the Washington Post as saying it was getting likely that Israel would attack Iran in April, May, or June. That is exactly within the eclipse season. Israel and Iran have this last week been sabre rattling with one another and the temperature for conflict has risen appreciably.

At the same time however, the outlook on the economy has gotten apparently brighter. Statistics say there are more jobs and the unemployment rate went down to 8.3 for January.  That is far below what had gone, not too long ago, to an over 10% unemployment rate.   It is still quite possible, however, for there to be big surprises, especially centered in Europe, to shake up our economic stability.

What is pertinent is that this coming eclipse season will shake up our world in a big way.  Events will ensue that will change all of our lives, and motivate us to accelerate our soul journeys of healing and transformation.  Plato is quoted as saying that “necessity is the mother of invention”, and our creative juices will be stimulated by the coming events that will surround us.

There is so much we need to do to alter the direction we have been moving in as a human family here on the Earth.   We need to bring our human condition and the Earth into greater wholeness, unity and health.   We need the world to be governed by love, truth, fairness, compassion, and justice.  We need to give higher priority and recognition to heart and soul values, to teach our children about how all of life is connected, sacred and meaningful.  Our Earth needs not to be so used for human greed and selfishness, and more to be honored and to be in loving relationship with.

All of these changes need to be made as a foundation for our building a world aligned with the Aquarian Age.

Perhaps this war can averted as collective humanity and its leaders wake up to recognize we need to make community with one another instead of dominating one another.   Perhaps we can avoid an economic crash, and begin to transform the world by realizing an economic system needs to serve all the people, not just the ones who can play Monopoly well.

Perhaps there will be divine intervention to help us, or perhaps our prayers can have a powerful effect to change the direction we seem to be moving in. But right now the storm looks like it is coming in as expected.

I do feel, no matter which way the wind blows this spring equinox season, we are being primed now in this winter  season to be ready to move powerfully forward come spring and all through the rest of 2012.

Our consciousnesses and bodies and lives have shifted over the last few months, getting us ready for the challenges just ahead of us.  As we passed Imbolc this last week, we look more toward the light now, and let go of the fears that have seeped in over the winter.   Those fears have brought some dark nights for some, but it is time to begin to let them go now, to release them another level.

This week we move up toward a Full Moon in Leo on Tuesday February 7th, at 4:54 PM EST.   This Full Moon highlights personal needs for creative expression and attention (Leo), and needs to connect to a greater social community or social consciousness (Aquarius).      Leo is central authority and Aquarius is decentralized networks like the internet.  Leo is heart shining in royal pride and Aquarius is equality in diversity.     Leo is the sun’s shine of smiling warmth and energy, and Aquarius is the human need for liberty of the individual to be self actualized.

Also this week on the 7th/8th Venus leaves Pisces and goes into Aries.    Venus is the relationship planet, and in Pisces she leans toward selflessness, empathy and compassion. After moving into Aries, we need to be more empowered in relationship, more true to our self. It is time to assert your self and speak frankly your truth. If you have been extra lenient or permissive with people during Venus in Pisces, after the 7th it is time to be more bold and not let people take advantage of your good nature. Venus will stay in Aries until March 5.

Also on February 7, there is an important energetic shift, as Saturn stops and goes retrograde. Whenever a planet changes directions its energy and meaning permeates our psyches and lives.

Saturn is the hand of time, letting us know our choices are narrowing. It is time to be definite, to be responsible, to be more self disciplined. It is time to stop procrastinating and to “get it together”.

For some Saturn feels like a “downer”, serious and sober. It is a stern teacher, making us learn our lessons; it is karma telling us we will now reap what we have sown.

For others Saturn feels very grounding and safe from scattered or chaotic or over emotional energies. It is clear boundaries, organization, and accomplishment.

Saturn may feel heavy or difficult now, like something we cannot avoid, or the hand of fate. But it is meant to get us to pay attention to what is needed now.

Thus early this week is an energetic shift, with Full Moon, Venus going into Aries and Saturn changing directions. Together they tell us to shift into more outward attention, more concentration on making our lives work better.  Even if we haven’t found resolution to what has been bothering us, we still need to get into gear.

See you next week,

Leo
