Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo and Astrology Forecast August 5-11

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We move this week into the last of three eclipses in Summer Eclipse Season 2018.

It is the last quarter of the Moon phase all week long until Saturday August 11 at 5:58 AM EDT.  At that time we experience a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo.

The Moon darkens more and more every day this week until after that New Moon in Leo.

That Leo Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 11 puts an end to a lunar cycle begun on July 12 at the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer opposite Pluto.

That New Moon in Cancer found “climax” on July 27 at the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius that was conjunct Mars and square Uranus. That lunar cycle ends on August 11 at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo.

And Retrograde Mars and Mercury Retrograde  have added more complication to a very intense time period.

I have gone through over 30 years of paying close attention to Eclipses, and this is one of the most powerful Eclipse Seasons I have experienced.

I have been witnessing people face some of their worst nightmares; experiencing emotions out of control; early traumas re-triggered;  difficult memories and people returning to them; hard decisions needing to be made. But also for some there has been rapid movement through their issues that led to big awakenings and breakthroughs.

And now, while Mercury and Mars continue being Retrograde, we move this week through ending this most challenging volatile lunar cycle before we experience renewal at the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo.

Time feels to be moving faster during this Eclipse Season, so we all need to take time to be alone in order to process our thoughts and feelings.  And this week the 4th quarter Moon, with Mercury and Mars Retrograde, demands we find inner time to connect with our inner home base in order to prepare ourselves for the fiery Leo jump start next Saturday the 11th.

Allow your deeper soul to come back to center (of course meditation and nature can be great aids for that).  Allow that deeper soul to connect better with source and Universe so you are more ready for the new beginnings at this Leo New Moon Solar Eclipse.

Remember that Solar Eclipses are always New Moons, but they are New Moons on steroids, so to speak.

And since we are experiencing a Leo New Moon Eclipse, we can expect this Solar Eclipse to affect our heart chakra, to want to open that chakra up some more.

Difficulties you run into around this Solar Eclipse may be because your heart has closed from old wounds that caused it to lose trust.

Now there is new energy and information that wants to come through you at this Solar Eclipse.  There is Love and Truth that needs your heart to be receptive.

This Eclipse also seeks to open your heart up so you can shine your light, so you can express your authenticity.

There may be a young child inside you that you have put on a time out.  He or she used to be more alive with spirit shining through.  Wounds, traumas, disappointments, and/or disillusions have tended to close its heart into not trusting.

Now you will have help from the cosmos into opening it up again.  Keep in mind that whoever was a part of the process of you closing your heart and not trusting must be let go inside your self.

It is you now who is closing that heart- not anyone else.  Work with the inner story that holds the key that keeps your heart locked up, the same key that can now unlock your heart and liberate you from the shackles of fear and hopelessness.

This last of the three eclipses of Eclipse Season 2018 will have some torque for moving you forward in your life in one area or another.

Keep in mind however that this New Moon Eclipse sits in a cocoon waiting for Mercury and Mars Retrograde to go forward again .

You will be able to get your life’s motor running with this eclipse, but the Retrograde planets may keep you waiting before the movement goes strongly forward with action or manifestation.

Your creative juices should be alive with this eclipse, and more so if you do not let your ego get in your heart’s way.  That is the Achilles Heel for Leo, its temptation to look too much into the mirror to grade how it is doing?

And remember that feeling you are worthless or no good also relates to your ego controlling you and your ability to shine your light creatively.

The Virgo New Moon this coming September 9, just two days after Saturn goes Direct, is a good marking point for the end of Eclipse Season and more grounded in reality new beginnings.

Out in greater America and the greater world, much is holding on by threads. Under the surface there is much instability and much shifting and changing.

It is the old establishment, which holds the old paradigm, that is breaking down.  There are now rather desperate attempts to keep it propped up, and as more of the new shows itself, more desperate controls and bullying will surface.

As the Trump administration faces more and more scrutiny and more attempts are made for his impeachment, he will likely take desperate measures to fight off these attempts or he will distract attention with events that will rally the citizens, like war.

The Middle East is truly on the edge now and chaos is growing around Israel and the Palestinians, Syria and Iran.

Keep in mind through all the challenging coming events in America and the world, that all the turmoil is related to the shifting tides out of an old paradigm and age and into a new paradigm and age.

And in America the split between cultures is on the verge of igniting into something worse than it already is.

So many families, friendships, and other relationships are in war mode with one another, with no real understanding or respect for one another. As I write this,  a rally in Portland Oregon is happening with far right and far left factions facing off.

Last year, also with a Solar Eclipse in Leo, a similar face off happened in Charlottesville Virginia.

Also the Trump doctrines are separating the United States from its traditionally closest allies, like Canada and Europe.   More separation than ever before is overtaking the United States in its global relationships, including trade wars with Europe and especially China.

Nationalism and Globalism are another facet of this separation between cultures. In a distorted dysfunctional way this is an attempt at finding Diversity Within Unity.

Nationalism is trying to find a country’s individuality without seeking unified connections.  Globalism sometimes looks like everyone giving up individuality for uniformed agreement.

Diversity within Unity is honoring one’s distinct individuality and way of life and at the same time knowing we are all one, all connected.

One should not have to sacrifice one’s authenticity in order to fit in.  But one need not sacrifice one’s needs for finding what unites us all despite our differences.

No pushing agendas this week or desperately needing quick answers or impulsive moves forward.

Early this week, Uranus goes from Direct to Retrograde. So the frequencies of Uranus (liberation, breaking out of boxes or “chains”, awakening, winds of change) will be strong in our energy fields.   

Also Venus leaves Virgo for Libra this week.   Venus in Libra puts emphasis on finding balanced connections between people and following social graces in one’s interactions with others.

All these shifts during the last quarter of the lunar cycle turn into the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11. This Eclipse will be square Jupiter in Scorpio, so this eclipse like the last two is powerful.

This brings a strong energy for moving forward with your heart leading the way. Please keep in mind that intensity will be strong and complete clarity because of the Retrogrades may not come easily.

Till next week

Relationship Breakthroughs and Astrology Forecast October 15-21

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 14, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Early this week we remain in the last quarter of the lunar cycle, a cycle that began at the Virgo New Moon of September 19/20.

Then on Thursday October 19 at 3:12 PM EDT a new lunar cycle begins at the New Moon in Libra.

So most of the week we will be coming down and collecting ourselves getting ready for the New Moon on the 19th.

Usually there is less energy for us to use during the end of lunar cycles.  Symbolic of that fact is that the Moon disappears from sight and it is totally dark a day or so before the New Moon and also at the New Moon.

Though energy can be less then and feeling down more likely, the dark Moon time is really good for meditation, prayers, positive visualizations, and making positive intentions.

The Moon begins to show a sliver- usually the Night after the day of the New Moon. That is the real beginning of a lunar cycle. That is the time to move forward with action and beginnings.

Since Libra is the sign of the New Moon, new starts for relationships are at the top of the list of priorities.  Art projects, decorating, peace efforts, and mediation also are aligned for the New Moon in Libra.  Issues of justice and fairness are also potentially stoked for this new lunar cycle.

But relationships are the number one issue for this round of Libra.  And Venus has also come into Libra recently to help with relationship issues.

This Libra New Moon and the lunar cycle it starts are more complicated and certainly more energized than usual.

Uranus in Aries will be almost exactly opposite this Libra New Moon.  The closer an aspect is makes it increasingly more powerful and important.

Uranus being in the signature of this New Moon and opposite its position, creates an electric wave of importance.

Uranus is a planet of Awakening, of seeing and moving outside boxes of being stuck.  It liberates.   It breaks things open, and puts one into new vistas of thought and experience.

So relationships will tend to break out of old patterns around this New Moon in Libra. Anything stuck in the status quo of old ways will have opportunity for breakthroughs into new energies, patterns and ways.

Since Uranus will be in self empowered Aries it may challenge the old glue that has tried to hold the relationship together.  Often those old patterns use co-dependence as the glue of togetherness.

Now one or both members of the relationship are stating a need for greater independence and individuality.  Remember all relationships, when healthy, balance individuality and independence (Aries) with togetherness and relationship (Libra).

Now it is time for certain relationship to break out of old patterns of old ways and begin to learn new ways of being.

Keep in mind that this theme continues for the rest of this lunar cycle.

If you have been disempowered previously in any relationship or felt you needed more independence, now the winds of the Universe will be at your back for change.

Also remember that Eclipse Season was not that long ago, and the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo signifies great new beginnings, new beginnings that vibrate with change for months to come.

In the greater world, Eclipse Season brought us most powerful natural disasters, disasters that express the rage of Mother Nature.  Those powerful natural events have continued beyond the bounds of Eclipse Season.

Culture wars that include a great deal of discrimination  and abuse of power were also triggered during this last Eclipse Season in Charlottesville Virginia.  Issues were sparked then and will continue to be heated going forward. Recent issues of power abuses toward women are part of the process.  We are cleansing our world of old patterns of abuse and discrimination.

And the heated confrontation between North Korea and the USA was also triggered during Eclipse Season, and that ugly conflict will be continued.

This New Moon with Uranus in Aries will be another big turning point for the North Korea issue, and that relationship will likely break out into something new and dangerous.

Greater conflict is likely soon, especially so because along with the New Moon/Uranus event, Jupiter in Scorpio will be close to exact conjunction with North Korea’s Mars in Scorpio over the next week or two.

When you add the Trump action of changing the Obama deal with Iran, dominoes may fall rapidly in response to what happens with North Korea. And Syria will be another domino.

Jupiter in Scorpio potentially brings out more primal energies in each of us, so it is wise to stay alert to that knowing.  People can be more short fused, and intense arguments can be brought on. Of course sometimes that creates a catharsis and clears the air, which brings positive transformation.

Also secrets are more apt to come out with Jupiter in Scorpio.  October 26, when the Sun has joined Jupiter in Scorpio, is the deadline for previously locked up files regarding the Kennedy assassination to be opened.

In 1992 it was determined that those files would be opening in 25 years and now only Trump can stop that opening.

Other previously held secrets may open up also, in the world and in personal lives.

Please remember that all the intense events that began during Eclipse Season, including the natural disasters, are for the purpose of immense purging in order to open the portals for the energies of consciousness aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

It is best to focus now on the new beginnings brought forward with the New Moon in Libra with Uranus in Aries.

Your relationships can now break away from old stories, even past relationship memories can awaken to new ways of being viewed.  Maybe that old relationship was meant to end, no matter who initiated the breakup.  Maybe no one needs to identify with being a victim, and learned lessons can bring new and better relationships.

In the new consciousness, win/win is the way of dealing with relationship issues.  What is in the interests of both people from a Higher Self perspective?   If you open to that channel of perspective, you will receive the answers that serve you both.

We the people will need to initiate the changes that are needed now. Especially since the election of Trump, we are motivated to change this world and transform it into one for the Age of Aquarius.  Challenging the Trump administration is necessary to bring about the positive changes.

In the next Eclipse Season in late January-February 2018 we will have the winds of the Universe at our back to begin the process of throwing OUT the modern Trump version of Roman emperors like Nero and Caligula.

As we release the old in our consciousness, through the intensity of Scorpio energies, we can open to a rebirth of our consciousness and lives.  And in the outer world, the coming intense events will also open us to new horizons of consciousness and living- all in service to the Age of Aquarius.

Keep the Faith.

Till next week,

Leo

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Winds shift this week as we come to a New Moon in Scorpio on Wednesday November 11.

This past week has been very difficult for many people.  As we explained last week, the prepoderance of planets in yin signs Virgo or Scorpio during a last quarter lunar cycle promises “down” times.

It was difficult to see the glass as half full this past week, and many suffered facing their worst fears for one reason or another.

But this time has been necessary to go deeper into our souls and bodies, so we can be more real and can be more able for releasing old fears, old patterns of thought and behavior, and toxic emotions that hurt our bodies and souls.

This whole year has been a challenging one, one of great transformation on the route to the Age of Aquarius.

A portal was opened in both the spring and autumn of 2015, a portal that let in new energies aligned with the new age we are moving into.

Many more people have been awkened spiritually this past year.  Many people are seeing more clearly the true condition of our world.  As such, huge crowds have come to see Bernie Sander’s messages of needed economic equality.

This past week also saw thousands of people join a million man mask rally in London.  This rally was to show how capitalism in its current form is rewarding relatively few people, while the vast majority on the Earth struggle to survive.

This past week also showed how dangerous the Islamic State is becoming, as it very likely caused a commercial airline bound for Russsia to explode in mid air.  Russia has recently been bombing in Syria against the Islamic State. This turn of events will bring much change and more grave events into the global world.

And in Israel, there are more and more attacks from Palestinians who are enraged about the long time occupation of their people by Israel.

We also see more and more mass killings in America at schools and malls and other common meeting places for humanity.

And our government is more and more dominated by outside interests, most especially by big corporate interests.

Power to the people to run our world has been largely vanquished by Big Corporate and Big Government interests.

Yet so many people now are waking up and seeing the light.  Their seeing the light is motivating them to open their minds and hearts to new ways.

In so doing they are spiritually transforming and their now opened hearts seek to enter new pathways of Love and Truth.

Is it not readily apparent now that our current world structure and paradigm has failed and that we need new ways of living on this Earth together as one family, a diverse one but neverthelesss all One Family?  Hateful divisions by religion or nation or cultural differences or sexual orientation are ridiculous and are the root of so many ills in our world!

We will need to band together in order to transform our human condition, heal our Earth and its environment, and spiritually connect to the greater meaning in our Universe and to our abused collective Soul.

Our collective Higher Self or Soul has been dominated in consciousness by our collective Ego, an ego that strives and thrives on separation, greed, power, and cynicism.

But since the Eclipse Seasons this year, even as life at times seems much more difficult, we are waking up in all new ways, and even more importantly wanting to make important changes that reconnect us to our better values and to our souls and the Universe.

Now this coming week shifts us out of the recent emotional funk and will bring us more energy and a greater ability to see the glass of our lives as half full again.

It starts on Sunday as Venus moves out of Virgo and into Libra as we get closer to the New Moon in Scorpio.  But keep in mind that we will still be in last quarter of the lunar cycle until Wednesday.

Please do not let yourself believe that the “negativity” you have been feeling and thinking lately is the ultimate truth.  Let time pass before jumping to any conclusion.   Energies have been coloring our thinking and feelings to be more “negative” lately.

Keep up your meditations and spiritual practices, keep releasing and purging old ways, and realize that “this too shall pass”.

On Wednesday 11/11 there will be a New Moon in Scorpio at 12:47 PM EST. The good news of this new moon is that you will begin to have more energy and more motivation to do things and to move forward in your life.

But also remember that this Scorpio energy may tend to lure you into power struggles with others.   Do your best to avoid such conflict if you can.  At the same time give your best to stay empowed and to speak your truth. Just avoid the ego’s need to dominate someone else and to crush them.

Scorpio at its best gives us positive primal energy and “gut” wisdom, passion, and empowerment.  At its worst it brings us toxic resentments, jealousies,  and desires for revenge.  At the same time do not be afraid to feel such emotions as they may be pent up feelings from holding back your truth and power time and time again.

Just do not feed these emotions, be careful not to express them in ways you will regret later, and certainly do not act on them.

At the same time there may be a catharsis and healing with others as you both express what has been bothering you, perhaps even bothering you for a long time.

This New Moon in Scorpio may open up the gates of hell in the greater world and bring more horrific world events that continue to bring down an old paradigm and awaken more people to the need for great change in our world.

If such events do occur, keep your attention on your personal consciousness and life, on your spritual transformation and on your commitment to your Higher Self.  Keep your attention on the New World that is developing parallel to the breaking down of the old world.

Work to bring into your life relationships that show you the love and truth of this world and Universe. To help in that Mars joins Venus in Libra Thursday to prompt us to make relationship.

It is easy now, with all the troubles in the world, to get into a mind frame that wonders how can there be a God or Goddess or Universe that is loving when there are so many bad things going in the world.

Well we humans have been given this beautiful “park” called the Earth, and what we have done with it is on us, not God.

But now we have the opportunity, as the Ages are changing, to evolve to a whole new level of human.   The examples of Christ or Buddha or Mohammed or King or Ghandi or Mother Teresa or Guevara or Moses, etc are part of our collective human Higher Self.

We each need to embody the consciousness they represent.  In an Aquarian Age there is no need to worship other humans or to wait for saviors as was common in the Age of Pisces.

“We are the ones we have been waiting for”, we are our own saviors now and must take responsibility to make this world a better place for all the human family.

Till next week,

Leo
