End of Eclipse Season, Autumn Equinox, and Astrology Forecast September 17-23

This week we come to the end of Eclipse Season, which has been a most powerful time of shifting life tides,  taking us faster forward through a New Life Chapter that is closer than ever to the Age of Aquarius.

Now that the Eclipse Season, which included Mercury Retrograde, is ending at the New Moon in Virgo this week; we are able to gain some perspective and insight into what happened and what may come next.

Many of us have been taken to important turning points in our lives, perhaps even requiring crossroads decisions.

For awhile now we may need to get our bearings after the intensity of the passing Eclipse Season, and the Virgo energies now will help us to analyze what has happened, to bring order to our lives, and to simplify what has been a rather complicated time period.

This is not a time to push forward, instead it is a time to fix up, repair, heal, clean up, and figure out.

That is because there is a New Moon in Virgo on September 19/20- actually at 1:30 AM EDT on the 20th. Mercury and Mars will already be in Virgo at that time, and Venus will have just arrived there too.

Virgo energy gives us greater ability to discern and be discriminating, to skeptically question, to be critical- hopefully in a constructive way.

So you will have the ability to take apart and view more closely the details of what is happening in your life.  Be careful, however, not to let healthy questioning turn into negativity, unfair criticism, and cynicism.  And be careful not to take yourself apart critically.

Virgo can be very perfectionistic and has a tendency to see life’s glass as half empty not half full.

In examining the world after the important events of Eclipse Season, we will have the ability to examine and find order, but must be careful not to be too negative, worrying, or fearful in the process.

We had extreme weather conditions and natural disasters, with an 8.1 Earthquake in Mexico, two very powerful hurricanes to hit the USA, as well as western USA wildfires that were more out of control than usual.

Culture wars picked up speed, starting in Charlottesville with KKK and neo Nazis instigating hatreds and violence.

The Middle East showed signs of change as Islamic State was wiped out of many locales it controlled, though it did perpetrate terrorist attacks at the same time. Syria is apparently more settled now, but  at the same time Israel and Iran are showing themselves closer to confrontation, with Hezbollah and Russia involved also.

But most ominously North Korea has taken center stage in our world with missile and bomb tests that have shaken the USA and much of the world.

Now it has become time to make decision on what can be done in that situation.

Of course many of us know weapons of mass destruction need to be mass destructed for the health of our planet.

But given the current situation, the wise option is to sit down with them, recognize their nuclear power,  and work out a solution similar to what was done with Russia during the Cold War.

The other option, a military one, will almost for sure touch off a World War, and begin to destroy the current economy.

There is no more sitting on the fence of sanction implementations for North Korea.

We are moving into a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius. In that Age there is equality among cultures, countries, and ways of living.   There is a multipolar power sharing and resource sharing world building.

Already China and Russia are determined to changing the current economy from one led by the American dollar and America.

Obama’s presidency began the process of leveling the world’s playing field and honoring the differences in people. He did as much as he could do considering the power of the Deep State’s Military Industrial Complex.

Now Trump challenges that global way of connecting us all.  He represents America keeping power over the world as a Superpower.

On a deeper level those days are done.  Now let’s hope the awakening to that fact happens without war and complete economic downfall.

We must collectively choose from our Higher Selves, not our ego selves, or as Sun in Aquarius Abraham Lincoln suggested- let our Better Angels lead the way.

Is our country and world sufficiently awakened to our Higher Self, the one aligned with the Age of Aquarius?

If not, and we will know soon, we will face our collective shadows in war and severe economic downturn.

As we each align with the energies of the Universe and our Higher Selves now, we need to then surrender our ego control and let this all play out as it will.

We can do our part by being in our Higher Self’s connection with Love and Truth.  And we can spread that wonderful energy to others we connect with.

And of course our letting go of the old programming from family and society,  helps everyone else to do so also- as a new trail is being blazed for everyone who awakens.

We also choose in this new consciousness to find balance and equality of male and female, yin and yang, dark and light, as true Nature requires.

 And that balance can be found at the Autumn Equinox on September 22 at 4:02 PM.

Autumn Equinox as always begins Sun in Libra time of year.

Autumn Equinox brings a perfect balance of light and dark minutes of the day, which is a signal for all opposites to join in equal balance.

After the moment of perfect balance, dark minutes of the day begin to increase, finding their optimum at Winter Solstice.

Libra time of year is a time to enjoy beauty and balance, symmetry and equality.  There is more emphasis on relationships and love.

Libra is also about the scales of justice, and knowing what is fair and just.  Libra can see both sides of an issue, which makes them great mediators but often as a result indecisive.

Libra is a sign of social graces, which can often preclude passion and primal desires and natural instincts.

Jupiter has been in Libra this past year, so we have been expanding our desires to make relationship, and to find equal balance and moderation in our consciousness and ways of living.

In a few weeks, however, expansive Jupiter will shift into Scorpio for a year.  Starting on October 10, we thus will begin to expand our desire nature, our sexual needs, and most importantly find what gives us passion in our life.

Scorpio also, in the process of reactivating our more primal instincts, may take out of slumber our repressed or suppressed lower emotions.

Rage, jealousy, envy, contempt, and just general meanness are the worst potential expressions of Scorpio.

Suppressed or repressed earlier traumatic events and wounding will tend to come to the surface where we can from our souls,  relive and at the same time release some of those old traumas.

As Jupiter goes into Scorpio, we will get more clear instinctually on what direction to take.  We will know from our passions what we want to do next.

In the world, events are more likely to be ignited after Jupiter goes into Scorpio, events that can be referred back to the Eclipse season we just passed through.

But for now gather yourself, investigate what needs to be investigated, fix, heal, repair, simplify and find order (Virgo).  And then also find the right balance, be more kind, focus on relationships and relating, look for love and beauty in everything (Libra).

Till next week,

Leo

As You Know It, So Shall it Be and Astrology Forecast September 16-22.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 15, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Well there is a lot going on astrologically, and of course that means there is a lot going on in the world.  This forecast blog has been letting people know that the Middle East is center stage in the transformation of our planet from an old age and paradigm to an Aquarian Age.

It is where many of our world’s first civilizations were born and where most of our major religions have their roots.  It is where now much of the toxicity based on dysfunctional patterns of separation abound.

This past week, in connection with the Uranus/Pluto square while Pluto changes direction on September 18/19, the Middle East has been erupting. It is ostensibly in turmoil because of a really dumb and horribly disparaging film about Mohammed and Islam.  I saw much of this film on UTube. It portrays Mohammed as a child molester, a fraud, a homosexual, and also a person who sexually uses women and pillages. It is very weird and poorly made, and very disrespectful of the cherished beliefs of millions of people.

This movie is the match that is igniting the dry brush of perceived disgust and disrespect from western nations and peoples toward Islam and its culture.

If not this movie, something else would have ignited the flames.   Soon Syria, Iran, Israel, Egypt, and many other countries will be drawn into the fires of conflict.  Watch carefully this coming week’s news there, and be aware that in November, after the elections, that Syria and Iran especially will be in the spotlight of world affairs and a possible Israeli or western powers invasion could occur.

In November, while Mercury is retrograde, there will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on November 13. That is the exact date anniversary of the coup that brought the Assad family and the Baathist Shiite party in to power in Syria. That was November 13, 1970.

Soon afterwards this year there will be a second eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini on November 28.    Mars will be triggering the Uranus/Pluto square then also as it makes conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn on November 27.

The fires of transformation will be especially strong in late October through December.    This coming week brings much opportunity for healing and transformation also.

The week’s power begins today Saturday September 15 with a New Moon in Virgo at 10:11 PM EDT.   As with all new moons, it is time for new beginnings.   In Virgo it becomes time to get more grounded and real. Virgo is skeptical of anything that flies too high or that stops being “real”.

It is indeed time to get your head out of any dream world clouds of fantasy or illusion, and to see life for real,as that way you can get your life to work better and be more ordered and efficient.  Simplifying your life and fixing and healing what needs to be fixed and healed, is also aligned for this lunar cycle.

Since the Uranus/Pluto square is opening up now also, especially strong because Pluto is stationary, going from retrograde to direct; there is much intensity to deal with.  Change is in the air, and you can best use this time period to allow your deeper issues to come up to the surface where they can better be worked with.  In fact it may be very difficult at times to hold the energies back.

Transformation and healing are dependent on feeling our issues emotionally, not just looking at them intellectually.  In feeling them, we are at the deeper level from which true change is possible.  So at times like this, you may get into emotional discussions that bring up uncomfortable issues that have been previously kept securely “under the rug” of our consciousness.

As they come up, we better understand “where we are at” on a deeper level, and can then better judge if we want to improve something or some relationship or if we want to let it go.  Can an old pattern be healed and transformed, or is it indicative of something that has died and must be let go?

These are not times to stubbornly hold onto the status quo of “same-old, same-old” in our lives. The deck of our lives is being reshuffled and we need to be ready to shift what needs to shifted.

A new chapter of our lives has begun, and we must do our best to see it that way. If we do we can give perspective to what needs to be changed.  What ways are reflective of how we were leading our lives in the chapter that is passing?    What new ways of being have we recently opened up to and are getting used to?

Release what keeps you stuck in old and unsatisfactory attitudes and beliefs.  Embrace that which makes you feel better about your self and life.  You want to be aligned with your authentic soul self and with the Universe, free to see the truth and to love and be loved.  The old patterns of programming from society and family and past lives has not served you so far, so why would they now?

It may feel sometimes that when you release and let things go, that there will be nothing to replace them, but there will be. Life always fills up the vacuum of what has been released, in time.

When you see the destruction in the greater world now, the hatreds and intolerance, the chaos and attempts to militaristically bring order, stay out of its way.

Do not let yourself get emotionally hooked into the dramas, taking sides and picking out enemies.  What is happening is meant to clear the way for a New World. Those who are hooked in are a part of that old world, and will need this time to hopefully see that this is all so toxic and dysfunctional and reflective of a world filled with beliefs of separation.

We are all one, with many shades and differences and orientations. We are all one family. There is dark and light in everything, “good and bad” in everyone and everything, so to speak. There is no religion or race or nation, or sexual orientation superior to any other.   We were created as a Unified Whole, and every cell in that Whole is also meant to  be Whole.

The Aquarian Age is about equality and Diversity in Unity, liberation and freedom, all the opposites joined as one.  Night and Day are unified to make the whole day. Yin and Yang are connected in circular oneness, hot and cold do not fight for which is better. The plug and outlet are meant to be joined.

It is time for each of us to know that all the dots in the Universe are connected with sacred meaning, not in random nothingness.

As you know it, so shall it be.

Use these powerful planetary movements to help you to let go of limiting beliefs, and of an old world and its paradigm, which is on the edge of destruction.  Instead use the transformational openings that are being created to find new connections, and to embrace the Love and Truth that are the pillars that hold up our Universe.

Next Saturday, when we “speak” again, it will be time for the Autumn Equinox, the balancing of the scales of Libra. It will be the “sunset” time of year, when we start our yin-ward movement toward more yearnings for relationship and deeper meaning.

see you next week,

Leo

Destiny and Choice and Astrology Forecast September 2-8

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 1, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Well we made it through the Republican Convention, which ended as the Moon in Pisces was coming up to  being a Full Moon.  Mitt Romney, who gave his acceptance speech that last night of the convention, is a Sun in Pisces man. That is of course synchronistic.

I know many people made a big deal that this was a so-called blue moon, which is defined that way because it is the second full moon in a month. The Pisces Full Moon does not “know” about our Gregorian Calendar, and how many days there are in August. It just shines the way it does every year, as is natural.  Its energy and meaning are unaffected by our calendar.  It was a very gentle, flowing, deep and mystical Full Moon as always.

So now the Democrats will put on their convention, starting Monday.   President Obama will be in the spotlight, which is a natural place for that Sun in Leo man to be.

It is obvious to me that Romney and the republicans in many ways represent the old world we are leaving.  The emphasis is on nuclear family and “family values”;  seeing the United States as superior to other peoples; getting militaristic against the “enemies”; seeing the bible and traditional religion as a guiding light.

That is where they get their opinion that gays should not marry, and where they get their right to life, anti-abortion beliefs.   Romney is a Mormon, and yes we do believe in freedom of religion, but it is important to know more about Mormonism.

And Mitt Romney comes from a rather “royal” Mormon family. His great-great grandfather was one of the original apostles of Joseph Smith Jr. the main prophet of the Mormons.  Mitt’s great grandfather, who had multiple wives, left the USA to go to a Mormon colony in Mexico to avoid the USA law against plural marriage.  His grandfather also lived much of his life in Mexico.  Mitt was born in the USA, but spent some years in France preaching the Mormon word.

Brigham Young, the second main prophet of the Mormons, said that the African people had the mark of Cain upon them, Cain being the man who “sinfully” killed his brother Abel. For that reason Young felt they blacks could never be a priest in the Mormon religion, nor be able to rule at all in any way. He believed they should be servants to white people.

Now I am not saying Mitt Romney feels this way too, but attitudes that women and blacks are inferior to white men permeates the beliefs of his ancestors, who were mostly important leaders in the Mormon religion.  The Mormons also have a very close affinity to Israelis, as they believe they are descendents of Israelis from Palestine.  Mitt Romney’s allegiance to Israel is quite strong politically.

There is no doubt in my mind that the current republicans represent the Old Pisces Age we are leaving.  It is not that they are bad people, or people to be demonized and hated. It is natural to have people try to hold on to old ways.  They represent a world where people believe in a hierarchy of order, and a judgment of who belongs on the top, being better and with more privilege than others.  This is not so much about the domination of women and blacks and gays, though of course that is very important.

On a deeper level this is about the old world belief that some people are better than others and deserve more. The Aquarian Age, as we have so often stated in these writings is about equality and Diversity in Unity.  That is the New Age.

So if Mitt Romney’s current brand of republican party represents the Old Age, does that mean he will lose the election as we are moving into a New Age? No, not necessarily, because perhaps the pendulum will need to swing one more time a big step backwards before it takes many steps forward into an Aquarian Age.

And is Barack Obama a step forward? I believe in his first term as President he was a small step forward, at least in giving his endorsement to the rights of our gay brothers and sisters, and his attempts to hold back from a war with Iran.

But of course he still answers to the Empire, and his wars in Afghanistan and Libya, and his allegiance to the Corporate Structure, keep him from being a strong force forward.

Many progressive people, including young people ages 18-29, which was the only age demographic he carried in 2008, are largely dissillusioned with his not having brought the revolutionary change he so eloquently promised at the last election.

From studying the charts of Romney and Obama, the coming planetary movements over the next few years, and their connections to the USA chart, I give  the advanatage to become president to Romney. I believe that unless there is a very strong movement coming up for Obama, that Romney will win. Of course there is destiny, which can be reflected in the movement of the planets. But we also do have choice, do we not?

So I believe that destiny is now leaning toward Romney, but I also believe people can change that if they so will, and make some deep changes in the pit of their consciousness. Prayer and positive visualization can help. And going out to vote of course.

But just think, as the Pisces Age ends, perhaps quite dramatically and tragically, would not a Sun in Pisces, who also has Moon in Scorpio, not seem aligned to face that end?

Can we escape such a dark ending to the Old Age, and have a President like Obama, who at least gives us a small bridge forward to the Aquarian Age lead the way for the next four years?

Remember, no matter how this turns, that there are not good guys and bad guys, no evil enemies to fight. Do not demonize.  We are moving in transition between Ages, and some “dinosaurs”are becoming obsolete, slowly but surely.   We do not want their death fall to crush us, but demonizing them only keeps each of us back in the consciousness of the old world. It is not “Us against Them”. We are not the good ones fighting against the bad ones. That attitude holds us back and makes the transition more difficult to achieve gracefully.

Mitt Romney is probably a very sensitive and caring person to people who know him and who are his friends and family.  His consciousness, however, may be stuck in the past, in old ways of thinking, not connected to a broader and more inclusive way of being.

This coming week, as the Democratic Convention plays out, we are in the waning half of the Lunar Cycle, getting prepared for new beginnings after September 15 at the New Moon in Virgo. Shortly afterwards, on the 18/19th, Pluto changes directions while it squares Uranus for the second time this year.  That week will bring more intensity, release of the old ways, and transformation into the new.

This week we should get a bit of an appetizer of intensity as Mars in Scorpio makes sextile to Pluto and quincunx to Uranus, triggering the Uranus/Pluto square. Stay alert for some shakeup this week, and do your best not to lose you cool.

See you next week,

Leo
