New Normal and Astrology Forecast November 26- December 2

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week begins with further progress in our transformational journeys, and then reaches a kind of climax and turning-point slow down at the end of the week. 

We enter the 2nd quarter of the Scorpio New Moon lunar cycle Sunday the 26th at the Moon in Pisces.

Next Stop is the energetic climax at the Full Moon in Gemini on December 3. The previous day we encounter a rewind of our mental processes as Mercury goes retrograde.

We have experienced strong winds of change in 2017, so we have been doing the inner work of transforming out of old patterns and beliefs.

Transformational change is never simply about outer world shifts. Yes we may be leaving an old job or an old home or an old relationship; but more important is what is going on deep in our souls.

In the past we attracted to ourselves situations, people, and challenges aligned with who we used to be at a very deep place in our minds and souls.

If we developed a belief about ourselves, deep inside, that told us we are not worthy or deserving, then as a result we attracted into our lives mirrors that show us how right we were to doubt ourselves.

Jobs, homes, families, and relationships have given us these negative mirrors based on those beliefs.  And then those personal beliefs are strengthened about our not being worthy or “enough”.  And then those beliefs attract more negative people and situations, which then again develop strengthening negative beliefs, and so on and so on.

These patterns continue until we awaken and realize that we have been running programmed negative inner recordings from our childhood, past relationships or situations, or even past lives.

That is when true transformation begins, the kind of deep transformation that can change our lives to be aligned with our true self, our “higher self”.

And at those times the transformational planets go to work to lead and guide our soul journey.

Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are those transformational planets; and they show up as transits to our natal planets every time there is true transformation as a distinct possibility.

The old self is a result of our being programmed to believe that we and our lives are limited and lacking, or conversely are privileged and have fairy tale results.

The handsome prince or castle or in the modern world privilege, wealth, celebrity and fame are the carrots that keep us chained to our ego selves.  We want to be with the “haves” and not with the “have-nots”.   This is Jupiter making the promise of grand reward if we play the “game” in the best way possible.

And Saturn is the “stick” of poverty or incarceration or illness or hell if we do not play the game right and follow the rules.

Jupiter and Saturn are also respectively considered good luck or bad luck.

But then in 1781 Uranus was discovered, then Neptune in 1846, and then Pluto in 1930.

They show us we can leave the old paradigm, the old beliefs, the old testament, the old contracts, the old age. They show us we are not limited by these old rules. They show us all dualities are connected in wholeness like a Yin-Yang sign.  They show us to our higher soul self in the lead and not our ego selves.  They show us we are on the road to the Age of Aquarius.

And now the transformational journey’s speed is accelerating as we get closer and closer to the true dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

The next big spike forward will be the next Eclipse Season January through March 2018.  It is the first follow-up to the powerful Eclipse Season last summer, which featured the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo that travelled right over the USA.

America is now very much in the process of dropping its Superpower status in order to re-integrate its true values and become an equal member of the world of nations,   a part of the Aquarian Age of Diversity within Unity.

Now this week we travel up tempo toward the Full Moon in Gemini Sunday December 3.

And just before that Full Moon, on the 2nd of December, Mercury goes Retrograde.

It will be time to stop and reconsider, to rewind into the past, to reflect on where we are and where we have been, to revise or even change our decisions or chosen direction.

But of course my usual advice is to wait till Mercury goes back Direct before making final decisions or changing directions.  This time it goes Direct on December 22, which is part of a turning point week with New Moon in Sagittarius and Winter Solstice.

But again this week we move up toward the Full Moon, while shifting gears into Mercury Retrograde late in the week.

Before those two events next weekend,  we experience a fiery blend of Venus going into Sagittarius and Mars opposing Uranus.  Desires for change or adventure increase.  Desire for breaking away from stuck places in your mind or life get stronger.  Rebellious or revolutionary energies are increasing.  The potential for surprise events in the world are greater than usual around this time.

It is now holiday season for many people on Earth.  The uplifting Sun in Sagittarius always accompanies holiday season for most of its run. And of course the Sun is now in Sagittarius until December 21 at the Winter Solstice when it goes into Capricorn..

As we come closer and closer to the next year of 2018, we look back at a year of new beginnings for great change.

The Trump administration has brought much motivation to many to stand up for change.  More and more people are waking up to acknowledging the sorry state of our conventional world and its old paradigm.

Trump is merely an exaggerated example of the leaders and movers and shakers of our old world.  The power abusers are being revealed. Old beliefs about how men and women should be are being challenged.

The fragility of our lives is being exposed as we feel the possibility of nuclear destruction more deeply than before.

We are reevaluating our priorities and transforming our beliefs and lives.  More and more people are committing to being authentic and at the same time being aligned with their higher soul self and the Universe ( God, Gods, Goddesses, Allah or whatever words you use for unity of all).

There is no going back to “normal” anymore.  We are in the chaotic, creative, transitional phase of developing a New Normal.

And there is a New You being developed at the same time.  And that New You also brings back soul parts of an Old You that was lost many years ago, perhaps in your childhood during traumatic events.

Your wholeness is the New You, as wholeness is the New World and Age.

All separate parts are honored and integrated in wholeness: Diversity within Unity for the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Waving Goodbye to 2015 and Astrology Forecast December 27-January 2

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 26, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Next week on January 2,  I will do a forecast for 2016,  including the Presidential primaries and election.

For this coming week, which includes the last week of 2015 and the first day of 2016, there is not much planetary action.

We will still feel the effects of the Cancer Full Moon the weekend of December 26/27.  Then we move through the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Sagittarius New Moon on December 11.

At the New Moon in Capricorn on January 9, that lunar cycle willl end as the new one begins.

But for this week the Moon’s light begins to slowly fade away as the year 2015 fades away too.

Interesingly, the rare occurence of all the planets being Direct is now in effect since Uranus went Direct on December 25.

We have a very short window of all Direct planets, as Mercury goes Retrograde on January 5 and Jupiter goes Retrograde on January 7.

We have a mere 11 days of all Direct planets.

So you can use this time to get really clear about your self and your life.  You can feel more confident in your ability to transform and change your self and your life in a positive manner.

This all bodes well for this transition time between years.

But we are also in the waning half of the lunar cycle, at the end of the year, and many taking time off from work.

So the slowdown precludes much action forward being taken, but with the Sun in Capricorn now, we can get really clear about what intentions and resolutions we want to make for the New Year 2016.

You can know more than usual for this time of year, as the planets are all direct,  what course is right for you and how you can get there.

Venus moves out of deeply instinctual Scorpio and into Sagittarius on Wednesday December 30. So your heart can help you to find more inspiration from others through conversation, books, movies, etc.

You can also begin (Venus stays in Sagittarius until January 23.) to expand your relationship efforts to repair and heal.

It should be somewhat easier, while Venus is in Sagittarius, to see the bigger picture of relationship, and to be motivated to make relationship improvements.

2014 and 2015 have been especially powerful transformational years.

Our world is going through great growing pains,  and most people find it difficult to see where we are all going.

It seems so apparent to me that the old conventional world is breaking apart, especially so as people seem tired of the old ways that are no longer working for them.

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders both represent a breaking down of old ways.  Trump has little respect for the American political system and little tolerance for, in his opinion, politically correct ways of being.  And Sanders wants to greatly transform the economic system into one more equitable for all peoples.

Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner is a potent symbol of old gender roles and identities being more blurred than ever. This phenomenon is happening all over America.  More and more people are questioning and experimenting with sexual orientations.

So called minorities in America will be the majority of peoples in 20-30 years, totally transforming our country.  Europe also is becoming more multicultural, and other countries like Iran and Saudi Arabia are beginning to open the doors for liberation for females.

Global Climate Change is being taken more seriously in our world which will change how we live our lives, build our homes and drive our vehicles.

The internet and computer revolution is putting out newer gadgets and electronic equipment that will further transform our lives.

The Middle East shows us great transformation of national, cultural, and religious paradigms- as Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, and Islamic State are shifting national identities and cultural realities.

China and Russia are flexing their national and cultural muscles greatly, and further threaten the old power structures and paradigm.

Though some of these changes may be extremely difficult to see in a positive light, they are all part of the deep and vast changes we are moving through as we transition between ages and paradigms.

Just as in personal transformation, sometimes one’s outlook during the transformational process is dark, foreboding, and painful.

As one wakes up to new ways of seeing and acting, and as one releases the old ways of being; one then moves toward more light at the end of the tunnel in the transformational process.

So do your best not to fret too much or to get too much into fear or cynicism.

Much of the ugly stuff we are seeing now is temporary, as we cleanse our human condition in preparation for greater healing and an Age of Aquarius.

I saw a documentary recently about Viking invasions of England 1300 years ago.  There were brutal and ruthless rapes, beheadings, stolen lands, and killings. There were no modern conveniences and little true freedom and individual choices.  The Christian Crusades were also quite filled with horror.

Civilization in many ways has improved greatly since then.  Actually, on the contrary, it is arguable that in many ways we have become too civilized, too emotionless, too immersed in personal mental and electronic bubbles.

We are now at a true turning point in human affairs.  And as such we are hopefully questioning most everything, so we keep that which is right for our new world, let go of that which is no longer aligned, and create our new world together.

Nothing can hold back the tides of change that have been moving through our world.  But we have choice as to the quality of that change as we re-imagine, re-think, and steer our hearts in new directions.

Till next week’s Forecast for 2016,

Leo

Ruminating in the Cave and Astrology Forecast November 16-22

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 15, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week is the last quarter of the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Scorpio on October 23.    We are passing through the second Eclipse Season of 2014, and quite a ways past now from the Cardinal Grand Cross that was earlier this year.

Much of the dust should be settling from the intensity of the stormy winds of change this year.  As we enter the last quarter lunar cycle, Neptune is changing directions on the 16th also.  As it shifts from Retrograde to Direct, its inner directed soulful flowing water waves take us deep inside.  It is time this week to ruminate and reflect and heal.   Venus moving into Sagittarius brings some upliftment through human interaction, but the overriding energy this week drives us inward and yin-ward.

Whether you are totally aware of it or not, you have entered a new season or chapter of your life this year.  Just look back at where you were in February of 2014, and look at where you are now.

For many these last several months have been earth shaking with change.  For others the change has been more internal, with their attitudes and belief systems. And maybe also they have been awakened to dysfunctional patterns of behavior or relating that they are in the process of shifting and transforming.

You may not yet know exactly where you are going yet, but you should know by now where you do not want to go or do anymore

The greater world has also gone through immense changes this year.  Back in February there was no Ukraine/Russia issue that threatened old world security.  ISIS had not yet overtaken Mosul, the second biggest city in Iraq, and alerted the world that they were a grave danger to the structure and security of the world and its paradigm.  Ebola was not a great scare yet, and the Palestinians and Israeli’s were still at a plateau of pretending to get along.

Now it should also be even more obvious that the USA governmental bodies, including the Supreme Court, are bought out or at least heavily influenced by Big Money and Big Corporations.  Many fear just how much further we will stray away from our liberty and freedom, but also from our most cherished human values like care for those who are vulnerable or respect for the dignity of all human beings.

How much have we learned to bury our heads in the sands of our electronic devices or busy outer directed lives?   There is so much that is shaking up and changing, yet the media, government and other institutions, though quite obsessed with all the troubles, nevertheless show little promise for showing the way into a new paradigm for living with each other or being in sacredness on this Earth.

But in our own lives, in our own hearts and souls, we are making the changes.   We are coming to realize that leading a life of authenticity is not only desired but essential.  We are learning that our souls and hearts are as important as making our practical lives work well.  We know that we can no longer be OK with being robotic conformists to a world that is not aligned with higher and deeper values, in fact a world that does not see meaning beyond blind loyalty to country, family, and perhaps religion.

Loyalty is a valued trait, but it is an empty structure if not connected to our free hearts, souls, and minds.   Should we be loyal to a country that is driven by Big Corporations and uses the police and military to keep that system intact, even if unfair? Should we be loyal to families that do honor our authenticity or even see us?  Should we be loyal to religions built mainly on empty rules or guilt?

Should not your loyalty be to that or those who are true to deeper values, to love, compassion, fairness and truth?  Should not your primary loyalty be to your authentic soul self and the Universe/God/Goddess?

If these past several months have mainly served helping you to return or further commit to your true and deeper values, to your free mind and heart, to what you know is aligned and with meaning, then you have done well, regardless of material circumstances.

That old chapter of your life is dead and almost buried now, and death is a reality of life.  We may fight its reality with anger, denial, or any of the other stages of accepting death or endings.  There is no going back to how it used to be, to what was considered normal.  It may thus bring sadness and grief, but it also eventually brings renewal and new life.

So now as we enter the last quarter moon cycle, one that moves to a dark moon this week, we let go even more that old phase of our lives, not only on a practical level, but also on a deeper level in our hearts and souls.

If you have been remembering days gone by lately, you are doing what is natural now.  The darkness is stronger this time of year and even more so at a last quarter Moon that brings the end of the Autumn Eclipse Season.  And with Neptune also strong now, most of this week is best experienced with inner reflection.

But next Saturday November 22 brings a big energy shift.  There is a New Moon in Sagittarius on Saturday November 22 at 7:32 AM EST.

Sagittarius requires faith that all is happening for a reason, happening with meaning.    Sagittarius is the centaur with the top half being a human being archer shooting its arrows up to the heavens, searching for that which uplifts, with what has meaning, with what inspires, with what brings joy and maybe new adventure.

In your life and in the greater world, there will be more fire (Sagittarius is a fire sign) to raise a flag for doing what you believe in.  You will have more faith to do what you feel is right to do.

In the greater world, this will mean that countries or leaders will move beyond indecision and do what they feel is best to do.    It will be time to act on one’s beliefs. Watch for events in ferguson Missouri.

Keep in mind that Sagittarius is driven by a strong intuition, and sometimes that intuition can bring with it an impulsiveness to act.

Just check the facts and details before going full blast in a new direction.  Yes it is time to move forward, but you do not need to go all the way all at once.

And also here in America we are close to beginning what is a holiday season for many, and that alone may bring more Sagittarian joy into people’s lives if they do not become too immersed in consumerism and materialism and stress.

There is another exact Uranus square Pluto aspect to experience this year on December 15 and an unusually strong Winter Solstice after that.

See you next week,

Leo
