Honoring the Winter Solstice and Astrology Forecast for December 18-24

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on December 17, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have moved through two powerful and meaningful eclipses while Mercury was retrograde.  The intensity has lessened and we have turned a corner, but we are still in the Eclipse Season for a little while longer, until perhaps the New Moon in Capricorn on Christmas Eve December 24.

For now as we slowly release the pressures and emotions from that frequency that held our attention, we move down into the Winter Solstice this week.

Running around frantically shopping and partying is not in alignment with the coming  Solstice.  It is true that until the Winter Solstice we are still in Sun in Sagittarius time, so there is fire energy at our disposal.  But we are moving toward a solemn and sacred turning point of the year this week: The Winter Solstice.  It synchronizes appropriately with the true meanings of Christmas, which is deeply soulful, yet promising hope for our human family.

The Winter Solstice is a time of greatest darkness of the year, but is the turning point for a return to the light.    There are more dark minutes of the day at the Winter Solstice, but after its passing each day is lighter until the Summer Solstice, which has the most light in a day.

So if you are feeling sadness or grief or being drawn down emotionally, you are in alignment with the yin movement now.

It is wise now to find time to be alone, to find your inner compass, to contemplate, to reflect.    Running around and being manic is all too often what people do at this time of the year, and it pushes us out of the sacred space necessary now.

Of course we need to prepare for Holiday meals and family get-togethers, but if we can stay present with the natural tone of this time of year, we will appreciate the season.   Gratitude is more natural as we face the darkness, as we recognize that life can sometimes be diffcult or painful. We appreciate more than ever the people who we love and who love us.

The actual Winter Solstice is this coming Thursday December 22 at 12:30 AM here on the east coast USA. In the rest of this country the solstice is on Wednesday December 21.

The Winter Solstice brings the Sun into Capricorn for the coming month.    Cancer is the opposite of Capricorn and happens for the first month of summer. It brings with it the abundance of nature and Sun and light. Capricorn teaches us that we must do what we have to do, even if it is not in the flow of nature.   The resolutions of New Year happen during Capricorn time of year, and it is then we often decide to do things we do not feel like doing. We instead choose to do things we need to do or should do.  We know we need to discipline ourselves more and that it is time to “get it together”

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which is like Father Time. Time is what gives us limits.  It tells us we need to do things before we run out of time. It tells us we age and that we only have so much time. So Capricorn can definitely feel like a “downer”, but if used properly brings us accomplishment and success. It helps us to plan and organize, and build.   Though it can feel confining to free spirits, abiding by its lessons can bring a feeeling of groundedness and security.

We are getting closer now to ending 2011.  In the greater world there was liberating change with the Arab Spring,  the OWS movement, and Wikileaks.  There were the painful challenges of the Earthquake in Japan with its nuclear reactor tragedy, and the continued suffering for so many with a weakened economy.

2012 will bring us even more greater change.  Its highlight astrologically will be the square of Uranus and Pluto, which will last for a few years.  Their first exact pass will be during the next Eclipse Season in May/June 2012. That promises to be a time of enormous change.

The last time Uranus and Pluto made an important aspect with one another was in 1965/66 when they were c0njunct in Virgo.  This conjunction brought in the ’60s era.    It was a time of Revolution and consciousness Evolution.  Life as knew it would never be the same.    Our old paradigm for living was thrown into upheaval and we were flooded with waves of new consciousness and ways of living for humanity on the Earth.  People began to sing about the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

And now 46 years later, as we meet Uranus and Pluto again, we are closer than ever to realizing the Age of Aquarius, in my estimation opening up at the end of 2020. The amount of change we now need to release the old paradigm and age is enormous.  The degree of new waves of consciousness coming in is greater than ever. 2012 promises to be a roller coaster ride of transformation and healing.   And the world as we know it, will be getting dimmer and dimmer in our rear view mirrors.

For now, however, allow yourself to be present for the passage of the Winter Solstice and the holidays.

Breaking out of Stuck Boxes, and Astrology Forecast for December 5-11

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on December 4, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

We are about to enter a very active and transformational zone of planetary activity.    The New Moon tomorrow (Sunday December 5) at 12:36 PM EST intiates a double lunar cycle period that will shake up our reality.  This New Moon is in free spirited and fiery Sagittarius. Later that day Uranus will change from retrograde to direct movement, releasing liberating and revolutionary energies.  This combination breaks open stuck energies, breaks us out of old boxes, and stokes desires for greater freedoms in life.

This New Moon will lead into the Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini on December 21.  This is no ordinary full moon, however, as it is also a Lunar Eclipse. A Lunar Eclipse is exponentially stronger than a normal full moon.    It carries much more energy, and has much more ability to shake things up. It causes breakdowns of what is not working anymore and is ready to be released, and brings breakthroughs into new realms and possibliities.  

What makes this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse even more powerful is the fact that it falls on the same day as the Winter Solstice.  The winter solstice is an annual turning point into the winter season here in the northern hemisphere.   That day of the winter solstice brings us the darkest day of the year.  Overall with the Lunar Eclipse on the same day as the Winter Solstice, symbolically this is a very powerful day and gives us a signature for the winter season ahead.   

That eclipse/solstice day has influence before the event also.  Its influence is already here.   After this New Moon in Sagittarius Sunday, its influence will be stoked much more greatly.   Use this powerful time to energize your life, to bring positive meaning and inspiration to your life and psyche.  Embrace the changing times, and see them as opportunities to shift into a new passage or chapter in your life.  

The second lunar cycle will begin at the New Moon in Capricorn on January 4.  This is a very powerful new moon as it is a Solar Eclipse.  

In the greater world, many events have been boiling hotter in our world over the last couple of weeks.    Watch closely events surrounding Iran, Korea, Lebanon, and Israel. Keep a close eye on changes in the economic outlook.    There is a great chance there will be big events occurring during the next couple of months.   The events in North and South Korea and the Wikileaks information are only the beginning of these big events. Greater Earth shaking events are on the way.

Remember that our world is more rapidly transforming during these times of big astrological aspects.  The next couple of months are a spike time for more accelerated change.  The old structures and paradigm that we have been so encompassed by for so many years are breaking down.  It is held up by a world wide economy and military structure that effectively has been controlling many lives.  Here in America the media has become its pipeline for the programming that keep all minds and hearts captured.

And now with the Wikileaks information, the Powers that Be are being threatened with real and true information.  We have been told that security information is off limits to the populace. Of course this goes against everything this country has at its foundation.  We are supposed to be of the people, by the people and for the people.  And of course we are “guaranteed” freedom of speech. 

Because the established powers do not want us to have certain information, they want to kill the Wikileaks pipeline.  The Powers that be want Julian Assange stopped.    Since the last released revelations by Wikileaks,  their website has been shut down by Amazon, their web host; and Paypal has shut down their account there, which greatly inhibits Wilileaks ability to raise funds.   Beware of the internet being more regulated in the future, as freedom of information becomes more and more a threat to the old paradigm and the Powers that Be.  New Wikileaks information promises to be about UFOs.

So this battle shows you what we are moving through during this changing of ages and paradigms.    As the light of new consciousness moves into our lives, the old world guardians will get stronger in their efforts to stop the flow of the new paradigm.  

And this is true for personal lives also.  As you move into new inspirations and ways in your life, the old tries to pull you back.   What is familiar and feels safe has a strong pull to hold you back.  Doubts and fears creep into your mind and soul.   It is challenging to be able to trust these new ideas and ways of being.  They are so against what you have been taught by your family and culture.

But the world is changing so fast into new ways, and sometimes we seem to straddle between the worlds.  But it is getting more and more difficult to straddle these worlds.  

It is imperative that you move now to what feels healthy to you.   If you are with people or situations that bring you back to negative feelings about your self, that take away your power, that deny what you know, that try to control your life and sense of reality, you must make intention to leave.

Go to where truth resides. Go to where love resides. Even if you cannot leave all at once because it is not practical yet, it is important you make a strong commitment to find a way to do so.  You will be supported by the Universe, by the light of the New Aquarian Age we are all moving into.

There are NO Powers that Be that are stronger than the Universe and its cycles and seasons. They cannot stop autumn changing to winter and cannot stop the movement into a New Age.  If you follow the light of a new seasonal age on Earth, you will be supported. This does not mean you make foolish moves that do not make sense.

It means you wait for signs and symbols and doors opening, and then you move through with courage and faith.

So do not be afraid of the coming events that will be breaking down the old structures and institutions of an old world in its dying phase.  It is all part of the changing of ages on Earth.  Your life  is meant to change and align with these greater changes, as we are each a cell in the body of the greater Universe.

Scorpio’s Depths of Core Truth, and Astrology Forecast for October 24-30

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on October 23, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Sun moves into Scorpio today, October 23, 2010.  Venus retrograde, Mercury, and Mars are already in Scorpio.    It is time to begin to see beyond the pretty Libra pictures, and get down more fully into the deeper Scorpionic core of truth.   Issues hidden and sometimes shrouded in mystery are revealed.  

As an example of such deeper truth being revealed, yesterday WikiLeaks came out with documents of truth about the war in Iraq.  Among many new truths is the information that there were many more civilian deaths there than had been previously reported.  There were 15,000 more civilian deaths than previously reported,  a total of 122,000.

The New York Times says the documents disclosed “many previously unreported instances in which American soldiers killed civilians — at checkpoints, from helicopters, in operations” and it said there were at least four cases of lethal shootings from helicopters.

The documents detail torture, summary executions and war crimes. U.S. authorities failed to investigate hundreds of reports of abuse, torture, rape and murder by Iraqi police and soldiers, the documents show, it said.

The Times said that hundreds of reports of beatings, burnings and lashings suggested that “such treatment was not an exception.” Most abuse cases contained in the new batch of leaks appear to have been ultimately ignored, the paper said.

So many people have died, including American young people, and so many have suffered, and do you truly know why we invaded Iraq in the first place?  There were no nuclear weapons there. They had not invaded us or any of our allies.  They had no relationship with Osama bin Laden.  Sure they had a ruthless dictator, but there are many such people all over the world, and do we invade their country and start a war?

The “Powers that Be” programmed us to believe we needed to invade Iraq.   Because so many people blindly believe their leaders, and because people want to be “patriotic”, and because we easily get fired up to defeat “enemies”, especially now those with arab or muslim populations, we thus invaded another country, waged war, and caused many deaths and much suffering.

And you can feel the fear and hatred for Muslims growing in the country, as can be seen through the mainstream media.    The stews of more war are boiling hot.   Fear and hatred toward Muslims is now becoming like it has been with black men or like it was in Germany toward Jews before World War II. 

Wake up!!   The drums of hatred and war are beating again.  Iran is the developing face of the Muslim enemy now.    There is only one enemy to be defeated now:   Hatred and its allies Fear and Ignorance.

Our country is in obvious decay now, in large part because citizens have gone to sleep and given their power away to the Kings and Queens of modern times: Governments and Corporations and Mainstream Media.  They dominate our lives now.

Use this Scorpio energy now to go deeper into the core of truth.  This roto-rooting into deeper truth will get stronger still after November 6, after the Scorpio New Moon.   You are getting much help to transform your consciousness out of programming by society and family.  You can break out of the “tapes” in your mind that keep you from the truth and love that will set you free.

Hatred, and its allies fear and ignorance are the only “enemies”.  If hatred is the enemy, its defeat is only possible through love.   Unity consciousness is the only solid foundation we can set for our new Aquarian Age.     No race, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, or religion is our enemy that needs to be destroyed. 

We have been invading Muslim lands and acting like conquerors.   Can you imagine how we would react if some other culture or country invaded our country for “our own good”?  Only 8 men, who happened to be Muslim, invaded our country, and they did not destroy our country and take it over. We have been waging war against muslim countries that did not attack us, ever since that attack. And there is more to come.  And it is so important we let go of the hatreds now.

Additional help to break out of old programming is coming our way, with powerful astrological aspects and world events. Crisis is opportunity to transform and heal.

 Let go of the need for something or someone to be better than someone or something else.  There are no good guy Americans fighting against the bad guys. There is “good and bad”, so to speak, in everything and everyone, dark and light, yin and yang.  There is nothing to fight against.

There is only the need to make whole, to integrate.   We are one whole family here on the Earth, diversity in Unity. You have one whole family, made of many different facets of self- inside your self.   Take away the prejudiced judgments and you can make wholeness inside.   Take away the prejudiced judgments of others and we can develop a unified community here on Earth.

The Truth can be painful to see. It can bring disillusion and pain at first.  But truth does set us free from capture.  Scorpio can put us to the core of truth we have been avoiding, as life can feel more dullingly comfortable while living the lie.    After Scorpio helps us face these deep core truths, we are then able to release the old toxins, dysfunctions, and patterns. And then we can feel cleansed and healed.  And then the power of self and self renewal.   We are free.

Venus retrograde, as it has been since October 8, will help us to know the truth of relationship.  This can be truth about our romantic relationships, or friendships, or family members, or work associates.  There is much healing that can happen in current realtionship. Those that cannot find healing can be ended.  People from the past can reappear now to help put perspective and insight on those old relationships.   This insight may help us with our current relationships.  New people may also come into our lives during Venus Retrograde. It may be best not to jump to conclusions about those new relationships.

Venus goes direct on November 18, and runs full circle on December 20, a day before a most powerful Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice.  This will be followed by a Solar Eclipse on January 4 2011, that opposes the USA natal Sun.

Big events are coming our way.  New truths about the economy will be revealed.

After the New Moon in Scorpio on November 6, events will intensify.    You can choose to fall into fear, or to see all coming our way as meaningful and part of the transition into an Aquarian Age.

See you next week,
