Robots and Zombies, and Astrology Forecast October 21-27

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on October 20, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week’s spotlight is on the Taurus Full Moon, Wednesday October 24 at 12:45 PM EDT.  This is not the typical Taurus Full Moon, as Uranus is closely conjunct the Moon. Additionally Retrograde Venus in Scorpio makes an opposition to that same Moon in Taurus.

The action gets started this week on Tuesday the 23rd when the Sun makes its annual entry into Scorpio. That happens at 7:22 AM EDT.

The relative civility of Sun in Libra gives way to the primal passion of Sun in Scorpio.  Since some of that civility of Libra has been compromised already (witness the Kelly/Bolton profanity laced blow-up in the White House this past week), I can only imagine what this Scorpio time period will be like this month.

Jupiter is still in Scorpio also, where it has been for almost a year now.  It moves into the fire light of Sagittarius on November 8, 2 days after Election Day in the USA.

So this week will likely be quite intense, and with Uranus’ influence “out of the ordinary”,  “out of control”, and for some “out of their minds”.

Intensity may accelerate as soon as Monday morning when the Moon moves into forceful Aries, then increases when the Sun moves into Scorpio on Tuesday.

And by Tuesday we will also be feeling the power of this Full Moon in Taurus.

Uranus in the Full Moon signature shakes up the same-old status quo normality (whatever is left of it).

So expect sudden turns of focus and events.  Taurus is a fixed earth sign, and as such it usually provides stability, comfort, and security.

Yet the Sun conjunct Venus in Scorpio- opposing that steady Moon in Taurus, promises passion and emotional power in contrast.

And Uranus in Taurus is very closely conjunct the Moon in Taurus and opposite the Sun and Venus in Scorpio.

Venus is Retrograde in Scorpio, which suggests relationships will intensify and get shaken up some more.  This is especially true for any relationships that are already troubled, or which have previously pushed important issues “under the rug” of daylight consciousness.

The strength of this Full Moon may push some to the edge.

There is a drama building in regards to refugees coming over the border from Mexico into southern USA.

The aforementioned blowup between Bolton and Kelly was over this issue. Bolton favors the military going down to the Mexican/USA border and stopping anyone from crossing into America. Trump apparently agrees more with this approach.

Kelly on the other hand favors a more tempered approach that is not so hard-line.

This Full Moon in Taurus is made of fixed signs Taurus and Scorpio, which means there is a lot of stubborn digging in with one’s beliefs and needs- not much room for compromise.  It can be like a “tug-of-war” between people.

Taurus can quite stubbornly hold the line and not budge.  But Sun/Venus in Scorpio can push for its agenda in quite intensely powerful ways.

And then Uranus in Taurus can create chaotic circumstances to help break issues and events open, facilitate breakthroughs, and break down anything in its way.

So order versus chaos is a potential theme of this Full Moon in Taurus.

You can expect order to begin to break down, and then as a result some will use more oppressive means so order can be restored.

In your personal life relationships are already in the spotlight with Venus Retrograde until November 16Now with Venus still Retrograde, Uranus in the Full Moon structure will help you to break away from any relationships or relationship patterns you are stuck in.

Uranus is great for helping people think out side boxes of limitation, awakening people to look at things in all new ways.   And in this process, Uranus helps to free or liberate people from situations or mindsets they were previously trapped in.

Uranus was discovered in 1781, during the USA revolution and France’s revolution too.

Uranus is the “ruling” planet of Aquarius, so is the ruling planet of the Age of Aquarius.

Each of us deserves to be free of the cultural programming that starts the day we are born into families and societies that have created paradigms we are all herded into.

Now as we transition out of the Age of Pisces and into the Age of Aquarius, de-programming is essential and there for us when needed.

And with Uranus strong this week, we can each make real progress on our soul’s journey into more free minds and hearts.

To me it is pretty obvious we need a revolution again, out of the corporate dominated, materialistic society we are brought up in.

We are free souls, free spirits, and free minds first and foremost.

Yes we may need structures and rules to live by to keep a somewhat ordered and moral way of living.   But those structures and rules need to be made to lovingly support our free spirits, not to dominate and control them.

Our hearts belong to ourselves and the Universe, not to a nation, not even to a family.

Somehow we have been hypnotized in giving our power away to the state, which is now governed by big money and big military, not truly serving the people.

Yes you may seem to get security benefits from an allegiance to the nation and its rules,  but at what price?  In many cases, slowly but surely heart and soul fall asleep, spirit dies.

Zombies are metaphorically real. Movies and shows about them have been so popular because there is a ring of truth to them.. More and more people are “walking dead”, without knowing it.  They stop thinking for themselves, and instead make knee jerk opinions that are always loyal to the “team” they are on.  An example is liberals versus conservatives.

Politics has become more like a team sport or better yet army war games.

You are different from me and so you are my enemy? People do not even try to understand where someone from the other team are coming from. They have lost the ability to think and feel for themselves.

They have robotic reactions to everything important. No wonder robots are being thought to replace humans in so many ways. Robots and zombies- our future?

Till next week

Reconciling Past and Present, and Astrology Forecast October 13-19.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on October 13, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The New Moon in Libra square Pluto blew in very powerfully last Monday the 8th.  Adding to the intensity, Venus had gone Retrograde in Scorpio just 3 days earlier.

As we wrote last week that is a powerful dose of underworld intensity from Pluto/Scorpio energies.

And we mentioned how Kali would be connected to the powerful planetary movements as a counter to the Kavanaugh events of the previous week.

So what came just about a day and a half after the New Moon in Libra?   There was an 800 point drop in the USA stock Market (followed by an over 500 point drop the next day).  And on the same day the wrath of Mother Nature brought a huge and devastating Hurricane to Southeast USA.

Deep and powerful transformation was at work this past week.  The old Paradigm, which includes the “old boy’s club”, is being shaken up.  The economic structures that keep it propped up were threatened this last week, and you can expect more to come.

The Military/Industrial Complex is the power of the Empire, and so both economy and military might are in the process of being challenged by extraordinary events.

In your personal life, relationships are at the top of the list for being looked at now. That is because Venus has just gone Retrograde (until November 16), and the Venus-ruled Libra New Moon had transformational Pluto in its signature.

Relationships of the past come back into our awareness (through dreams, memories, and real-time reconnections).  This is often “romantic” relationships, but many times it is family and friend interactions instead.

These old relationships may remind us of the old patterns, the old disappointments, the traumas and wounds, the disillusions. They also may remind us of more loving times.

We are often, as a result, given the opportunity to change the patterns, or to release the past, or just to remember how it used to be.  Healing can also come as a result of revisiting.

Sometime after the end of the Retrograde period, we will feel we can move on into a  New Relationship Chapter.

Current relationships can be shook up during Venus Retrograde, shook up so we can look deeper and more realistically at the condition of said relationships.  And then we can choose to change the patterns, end the relationship (or at least its current form), or keep it just the ways it is (not as likely a result).

And remember this can be family or friend or work relationships too.  Family relationship issues are quite common during Venus Retrograde.

Last week we did not include some other Venus issues that can be experienced during Venus Retrograde.

Venus is not only the ruling planet for relationship oriented Libra. It is also the ruling planet for Taurus.

That means that during Venus Retrograde, we may also experience important issues around money, land, house changes, body and health issues, and security issues in general.

Whatever comes up in those regards need to be processed as much as possible, often without ultimate resolution or answers being easily found.

But after Venus goes back Direct those solutions, clarity and direction are more available.

Keep in mind that in the bigger picture we are moving out of an Old Chapter of our lives and into a New Chapter.

Whatever we are being confronted with now during Venus Retrograde is for the purpose of sorting out what needs to be released, or instead what can come with us during this transition into a new phase of life.

And of course the greater world we live in is going through this same transition.  It is not mere coincidence that Election Day is smack dab within the time of Venus Retrograde.

What happens then will help determine what our next collective chapter will look like. Will the Trump culture get a boost to continue what it has been doing?

Or will there be a shift that shows us the beginning of a turn in a different direction?

So this Venus Retrograde (which includes Election Day) will be a big turning point in our human culture’s travels into a New Chapter and eventually a New Age.

No matter what ,we are headed for the Age of Aquarius,; but the condition of the ride there will be affected by this time period.

How intense will the USA culture wars get?  How much can we bring some sanity back into our world? Is the old boy’s club beginning to break up?  How far will our stock market and economy need to fall?  How much will the world power structure start to change and how destructive will that be?

And more importantly, how much are we leaving behind the paradigm of “survival of the fittest” “dog eat dog” mentality? How much are we instead entering a collective consciousness of equality and fairness, of Diversity in Unity, of Love and Truth guiding our human path?

How far have we come to knowing all of our lives are meaningful, with signs, symbols and synchronicities showing the way?

Have we come to realize we are all connected and in fact All is connected? Do we understand that Soul energizes our temporary body vehicles, so we can serve our purposes this incarnation?

Do we know that Natural Cycles and Seasons govern the Nature of the Earth, but also our Solar System and Universe and all our human lives?

We are each held in the arms of our Mother/Father Spirit Source, safe and secure in its Love.  This is larger and more powerful than any society, corporation, government, tyrant or Empire.

This week we continue through the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Libra on October 8. We enter the 2nd quarter of the cycle on Tuesday the 16th of October.  Venus Retrograde continues this week.  The Full Moon in Taurus is on October 24.

Also this week, Third-Eye related Mercury in Scorpio makes insightful conjunct connection to Venus Retrograde,  and trines Neptune in Pisces.

This is a great week to go deeper, to go inside where core truths reside.

Till next week,

Leo

Power of the Feminine and Astrology Forecast October 7-13.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on October 6, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

With Venus now Retrograde (until November 16), and with a Venus ruled New Moon in Libra this week on Monday October 8; two themes are prominent: The Feminine and Relationships.

Venus has gone Retrograde in Scorpio, and if we were to look at various Goddesses, ones of power, depth and passion would be appropriate.

And Kali is one of those.  Seems like Kali is waiting to emerge- just outside our collective USA doorstep.

The old ways, especially the “old boys network” ways that are so powerful in the USA, are ready now for the force of Kali.

What happened this last week with the Kavanaugh for Supreme Court fiasco shows me that the passage into the Age of Aquarius will not be graceful.

Kavanaugh, besides the obvious sexual abuse he perpetrated, is unfit because of unbalanced temperament and certain bias against liberals. His out of control speech showed both of those faults.

But most importantly, and here is where Kali comes in, there is no real respect for women, and certainly not for those who have been  sexually terrorized, and made to feel like they have no value except as an object of others’ desires.

The old boys club needs to be shown cosmic lessons in humility and empathy, especially in regards to women. Kali is just the gal to do it.

So now women, and many men too, must embody the spirit of Kali and cause a revolution that transforms the power structure in our world and country.

It is time for a system that gives power and privilege to a select group of mainly white men to leave our country and world, And of course women like Senator Collins are part of the old boys club.

In some ways she is worse than the men, as she is a woman who talks like she understands and believes abused women, yet she still believes and still votes for Kavanaugh. Her talk is Bullshitting.

So as Venus goes Retrograde in Scorpio, let the power of the Feminine (which men can connect with and still be men) come through us all now.

And as we experience the New Moon in Libra on October 8 at 11:47 PM EDT in close square to Scorpio ruling Pluto, more power of Woman is unleashed.

Pluto has only recently gone Direct, so is still strong in our energy field.  And Libra is ruled by Venus, so Pluto and Venus are working in tandem (as they are with Venus in Scorpio too.)

There is no stopping this Feminine power now, so you can add your energy and will to it to make the movement work even more strongly.

Venus Retrograde and New Moon in Libra also point us to relationship issues.  Venus Retrograde in Scorpio begins a six week period of focus on relationships. In fact it is more like 11 weeks as the whole cycle extends to when Venus goes back to where it began its Retrograde movement (at 10+ degrees of Scorpio).

This is a real opportunity to experience old relationship patterns that are not working anymore, so you can work on changing, releasing, and transforming those patterns.  This is potentially really deep work, with many insights available for you.

This is about any kind of relationship: romantic, family, plutonic friendship, or work related.   Pluto and Scorpio do add the possibility of deep intimacy and sexual connections, so more romantic relationships fall into that category.

Scorpio and Pluto suggest that issues that have been suppressed or repressed will come back up again, hence old traumas (especially including sexual trauma) are ripe for being looked at, healed, and transformed. This is perfectly timed with what is happening in our world now.

It will be more and more difficult these next few months to keep the secret of abuse.  And so much emotion is attached to these memories. Allow for the clearing of the air and the catharsis that attends such emotional release.

Old ways need to die, old relationship patterns need to die.  And in some cases the actual relationship needs to die.

Pluto or Kali are not very gracious.  They can be ruthless and unforgiving. Events coming up in our world will be quite powerful and intense. Let the old ways, the old paradigm, go.

Remember that as bad as those ways are for our souls, bodies, and spirits, there is usually a part of us that resists the powerful change of letting them go.  It can be disruptive to our security driven lives. Surrender and acceptance are needed.

Jupiter is also in Scorpio, where it has been for the last year or so.  So its intensity adds to the theme of Scorpio and Pluto passions now.

Jupiter leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius on November 8, just after Election Day November 6.  That Jupiter movement signifies things breaking open, moving outside the box, and into being liberated.

Many are so focused on that Election Day to transform the political landscape. And yes it is important to vote to change the status quo, but it will take much more than votes and elections to transform our world.

The Military/Industrial Complex of the Empire sustains the old world paradigm and the privileges it has provided for the chosen few.

Our energy and action in concert with the power of the Universe/God/Goddess/Allah/Source (whatever term is meaningful to you) are about to go to whole new levels of Transformational changes.

Do not let yourself get too down and out or depressed now, feeling there is nothing that can be done.  The winds of the Universe are at our backs now, so if we are proactive in this process of change it will be so much more powerful. We are not victims to this unfair system.

We are part of Nature and the Universe, Spirit and Soul.  That and our ability to come together in collective community are so much more powerful than a cabal of privileged people controlling and beholden to a man-made system, even though equipped with weapons of mass destruction.

Who and what do you believe in? What do you believe is ultimately more powerful? Love, Truth, Justice, and natural cycles of Nature and the Universe- or the Empire?

Till next week,

Leo

Transformation at Work and Astrology Forecast September 30- October 6.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 29, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Powers of transformation are increasing this week.   Pluto has been slowing down while in the process of shifting from Retrograde to Direct on Sunday September 30.

Pluto, Guardian of the Underworld, brings up to the surface all the darker, more primal energies stored down below.  It is also like a black hole vortex, sucking down into its core whatever is losing its spirit and soul.

As it is changing directions, and for days after it goes back Direct, Pluto is moving more slowly while its energy permeates our consciousness.

What happened with Kavanaugh and the Senate this past week is so like Pluto.  People are letting go of civility and letting primal passions take over.  That includes the good, bad, and ugly emotional expressions of it.

As Pluto brings up the darker elements, it seeks to purge that which is old and dying matter. Old patterns of behavior, traumas and wounds come up to be intimately seen and re-experienced. Then comes purging, healing, catharsis and finally rebirth like the Phoenix rising.

And speaking of Phoenix, Arizona Senator Flake was the catalyst this past week for potential transformation this coming week.

He created a bridge between the warring political enemies, by demanding a thorough FBI investigation of the accusations of Doctor Ford and others against Judge Kavanaugh.

In your own life, feel the deep transformation moving through the bowels of our human souls.

You can now deal with what is needing to be experienced in order for transformation to occur.

You can expect over the next several days an opportunity to move through what may have seemed like stuck blocks in the system. And that is followed by a feeling of moving forward with more confidence in the New Chapter of your life.

When Jupiter starts its year long adventure in Sagittarius this November, the fiery light will be pushing hard through the blocks and igniting new ways.

Tuesday October 2 gets Mercury making a square to the recently Direct and slow moving Pluto. This affords you an opportunity to go deeper inside to find deeper insight into matters.

Your “third eye” chakra is being activated then to help you to see more deeply into matters and issues.

Also on Tuesday October 2, the 4th and last quarter phase of the lunar cycle begins with the Moon in CancerThe New Moon in Virgo began this lunar cycle, and now in the 4th quarter it is time to clean up and bring all together in preparation for the New Moon in Libra on October 8.

And another important planetary movement happens this week, as Venus is going Retrograde starting Friday October 5.

Venus is in Scorpio as it goes Retrograde, and that connects well with the Pluto emphasis this week.

Pluto is the “ruling” planet of Scorpio, so Venus going Retrograde in Scorpio brings a theme of deep, primal, passionate emotional expressions.

Like all planets, as Venus slows down to change directions its energy and meaning get stronger in our collective energy field.

Venus is about heart issues related to relationships, all kinds of relationship.  

So Venus in Pluto-flavored Scorpio will seek to bring up relationship passions, deeper relationship insights, and potential conflicts that “put all the cards on the table” and make real what has previously been avoided or suppressed.

Since Venus is going to be Retrograde until November 16, past relationships and relationship patterns will be in the spotlight of our awareness.

These old dysfunctional and toxic relationship patterns that previously have gone nowhere toward resolution, now will have potential for healing and transformation into better ways of relating.

Relationship counseling can do more than usual for you over the next several weeks, so keep that as an option.

Yet this Venus Retrograde will affect all types of relationship, not just romantic ones. So families, friendships, work relationships, etc may be affected.

If conflicts come up for you, keep the higher meaningful perspective on them, no matter how ugly they may become.

The conflicts are meant to be, and to help you to bring things to a head, where they can be transformed and changed, or in some cases ended.

It will be much more difficult during this Venus Retrograde to keep status quo, same-old patterns on life support systems.   You are ready for a change.

Now that conflicts, especially in the world, are getting quite ugly; it is easy to get negative and cynical about our world.

And yes something is falling apart and dying!  It is the Old Paradigm and Age.  Let it die.  Stop trying to bring it back to a saner old normal place. That is gone now. There is a better place ahead.

Keep your perspective on what is truly happening. If you are a progressive liberal look at Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortes or Jill Stein for inspiration. If you are a conservative look at Ben Shapiro or Ron Paul or even Senator Flake for inspiration. Look at the Green Party or the Libertarian Party for more pure versions of liberal and conservative.

The Yin/Yang symbol is for all opposites, male and female, dark and light or even conservative and liberal. Opposites are held in the circle of unity in the Yin/Yang symbol- not separation.

We need people of integrity of all parties and persuasions. We need respectful conversation between those of different opinion, in order to find what is in the common good. Those who believe differently than you are not the enemy.

Trump, as dysfunctional and unbalanced as he is, is a bridge into our new world. He and what he represents is causing the old system to implode before our eyes.

But he and what he represents are not what will stay and take over.

So keep the faith and stay on your higher path. If you have recently been pulled off the path, this week you can right the ship toward your personal evolution into the Age of Aquarius consciousness.

The light of a new world is shining, though your fears may be creating shadows that make it difficult to know.

Be careful not to get sucked into the black hole of dying lights. You have the ability of conscious intention, prayer, and meditative connection to Source.

Take the ride out of your uncomfortable comfort zones and connect with the energies of soul and spirit that are bringing us together in meaning.

Love and Truth run this Universe. Let it Be.

till next week,

Leo

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

If you need any help with your relationship now, I have done couples’ counseling for many years. Do you need to identify and work out old patterns? Do you need to decide whether to stay or go?  I use the astrological model to help in the counseling process. We can use Skype if outside New England. Write me at soulus@aol.com if interested.

Moving Through the Retrogrades and Astrology Forecast April 2-8

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on April 1, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week we moved forward after the Aries New Moon.  That New Moon signaled to us the reality that it is time to move on.

The old era or chapter of our lives wants to be in our life’s rear view mirror.  On a deep energetic level we have moved on and moved forward.

But for some there are still issues to be healed or resolved.

And with Venus still Retrograde, the direction of certain of our relationships may not be totally clear yet.

And to add some more confusion, next week Sunday April 8 Mercury will join Venus in Retrograde.

Retrograde means things we need to pause before we can know what to believe or what to do.   During Retrograde, so many “re’s” are activated:  Re-flect, re-wind, re-turn, re-negotiate, re-do, etc.

So with both planets going retro, we will have much more ability to be reflective and to rewind into our past.

What makes it all complicated is that the New Moon in Aries, as we stated, is driving us to move on and move forward.

And energetically it has happened. In many ways we have gone over the hump to the other side.  No more fence sitting.

But we still need more clarity and direction around some issues before we are ready to completely move forward into this new chapter of our lives.

Venus retrograde suggests we may have relationship issues to heal or be resolved or at least to be seriously recognized as real and needing work.  

Venus is not only about relationships but also about heart values,  security values, body issues, and real estate issues.

Venus is the ruling planet for both Libra and Taurus.  So any of those Venus issues can be in the spotlight of our lives now.    Going back in our minds to old ways of relating to security or body issues may also be happening for us during Venus Retrograde.

For women Venus Retrograde can also be about being a woman and what kind of woman one wants to be.  In its current retrograde pattern, Venus began the retrograde in Aries, suggesting needs to be empowered, true to self, and assertive as a woman.

Men may be experiencing their closest female mates as aserting their power more now. And their own “inner female” may need to be activated now.

Venus Retrograde moves into Pisces late on Sunday April 2, so issues around being giving, being other worldly, being surrendered and more mystical take hold.

So balancing the giving surrendered urge (Pisces) with the urge to be emboldened and empowered (Aries) may be challenging as a result of these planetary movements.

After April 15, when Venus goes back direct again, these issues should get more clarity and be ready to move forward with the other parts of us.

Relationships and communication are needing the most attention during the retrograde periods.

So Venus and Mercury will both be retrograde from April 8- 15.   There may be more confusion than usual around thinking, relating, and communicating then.

There will be more clarity after April 15 when Venus goes direct, then even more clarity aftter Mercury goes back Direct on May 3.

So we pause in some ways from totally moving forward till after that time.

So as we nevertheless continue to move forward now,  since the Aries New Moon, we actually pick up some speed as we go into the second quarter of the lunar cycle this coming week.

We continue moving forward in the waxing half of the Aries New Moon lunar cycle until April 10 at the Full Moon in Libra. Then the waning downward half of the cycle takes over.

So this week we continue moving forward in our new chapter, even while we still heal and resolve some issues during retrograde time.

And this week also brings Saturn going Retrograde on April 5/6.  When Saturn slows down to stop and turn retrograde, its meaning and energy get more priority in our lives.

Saturn is a contracting and limiting energy.  It gets us to stop and be more grounded, to wait and be more cautious, to set goals, to discipline, plan, and accomplish.

It also gets us to have more boundaries, to say no, to take responsibility, to do what we must do.

And it also rules endings and commitments too. Remember Saturn is about what we are limited in doing. Both endings and commitments give strict limits.

So this week is a good week to face up to what is real for you now.  Reality needs to be recognized and honored.  Acceptance is a key to this week.

Though some Venus and Mercury relationship and security issues of many kinds may need to be worked out, in most ways the “writing is on the walls” for what is real for you now.

And the Trump administration is real now in all our lives. That is not going to change any time soon.

Where we still have options is in how we relate to that reality.  How do we want to respond to that reality?  What values will we fight for as a result of that reality.

How will we handle our security issues and our issues of empowerment and self assertion?

How does this new reality affect our relationships? I have seen some families and friendships break apart because of the differences in political opinions.

Do we respect those who disagree with us enough to keep the glue of that relationship.

Or is the difference in core values too much to bridge to keep the relationship connected?

So you can see how a person can know they are in a new era of life, but still have some relationship issues to work out.

All people have personality or character traits that are diffcult for their partner.  So then we need to weigh which ones can be lived with and which ones cannot easily be tolerated.

And of course we need to dig deep inside to see if there is enough love to be able to live with someone who has these traits that are difficult to accept.

And yet some traits cannot be tolerated no matter how much love there is, no? How about physical or verbal abuse, or addiction? Should anyone put up with those traits even when  “in love”?

When we get into mid summer 2017, at the next Eclipse Season, which will be more powerful than the last, we will need many of our relationship and security issues to be resolved enough to be able to receive the awakening light, love and truth wanting to come through into our hearts and minds.

So now we clear up the blocks in our minds (Mercury) and hearts (Venus) during their retrograde periods, so we can better handle and let in those gifts later.

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
