Evolving Consciousness 2014 and Astrology Forecast January 4-10

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we enter the first full week of 2014 we continue to experience a very challenging and important planetary aspect.  This aspect will continue in importance for much of the first half of the year.

It is a Cardinal Grand Cross that includes the Uranus/Pluto square.  Additionally Mars will stay in Libra and Jupiter in Cancer during this first half of 204 to complete the Cross.  Sometimes Mars will be too far away to be considered in the Grand Cross, and other times Jupiter will be too far away to be in orb of the Grand Cross.  During those times there will still be three planets in aspect to one another, creating a T-square formation, also an important and intense aspect.  These planets are all pulling in different directions, potentially causing us to feel very conflicted as to what to think or do.

Cardinal signs represent the initial month of each new season:   Aries spring; Cancer summer; Libra autumn; Capricorn winter.   Because they are cardinal signs,  each sign creates and initiates.  So this Cardinal Grand Cross represents a transition into a new “season” of life on Earth, but a transition that promises tugs of war between various potential directions to choose.

Aries wants to create an independence of action, a statement of “I AM”.  This statement recognizes that staying true to how we were uniquely and authentically created is most important.

Cancer wants to create a nurturing circle of protection.  It protects the vulnerable and young.  It creates and protects a family.  It unconditionally nourishes, and makes whole.  It feels and makes soul connection.

Libra makes relationship. It makes connections, mental connections and heart connections.   It creates balance and harmony and fairness between opposites.

Capricorn builds, organizes, and creates structures, plans, and agendas.    It takes responsibility and accomplishes.

How do we stay true to our authenticity (Aries), while being in relationship (Libra), while keeping our concentration on what we trying to accomplish (Capricorn), while keeping our selves safe in our soul values (Cancer).

Put strong planets like Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto in these signs and you can see how we will all be challenged this year to take our “game” to a greater level, to operate at a graduated proficiency.

We are ready to evolve our consciousness and our lives at a higher level now.  Events will be swirling in our lives and motivating us to grow and progress to these greater levels of functioning.  Uranus and Pluto will be the axis of our transformation, as it was during the ’60s revolution.   Mars will push us to be more active and alive. Jupiter will be wanting us to expand our horizons and find the larger perspective.

We are being prompted to let go of our old patterns and the old chapters of our lives.  We will be pushed on and off our fences of our indecision.  We will be motivated to get out of the comfort zones that have become security blankets for flat line existence.  “Poop or get off the pot” will be a common theme this year.

In the greater world and in the United States, especially from March through May when the Grand Cross is exact  and at the USA natal Sun, during the next Eclipse Season; issues that have been kept on hold will break down so breakthroughs into new territory will occur.

The Federal Reserve will begin to let go of the monetary policies that have kept the current economy on life support systems. The Middle East will break out into major conflict with Israel leading the way.   China will begin to strongly challenge the foothold of the USA in Asia.  Russia will continue to flex its muscles and stand up to the USA Empire.    There is a multi polar world system of greater equality coming our way and it will important for each of us to let go of an old paradigm that teaches us that the USA is the good guys and other cultures that disagree with us are the bad guys.

Each of us in our personal lives and the world in general are rapidly evolving in consciousness this year.  As we evolve into this new realm, we are getting to know that situations between peoples are meant to be win/win for everyone; that the Universe is bringing us solutions and meaning to all apparent problems; that all the dots in our lives and in the Universe are connected; that the whole idea of perpetrators and victims is obsolete in a new consciousness for the Age of Aquarius.

The old world and its paradigm for security at all costs will be breaking down as the economy and current power structure break down.   As they do, we will all be brought to a more progressed and evolved way of being because “necessity breeds invention” and the challenges will help us all to grow.

So if now or soon you are seeing an old relationship or job or home end its term in your life, you can be sure it is because you are ready for a new chapter of your life.    The endings are not because of failure or who’s to blame or bad luck. It is happening because it is time.  All the dots are connected.

This coming week will keep the Grand Cross close, keeping you off balance, off your plateau of usual habits, and making you more alert.   Do your best to keep out of any fear that gets to be more oppressive than a normal warning to be cautious and grounded.

We are in the waxing half of the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Capricorn on New Year’s Day.  Energies are “on the come” until the Full Moon in Cancer on January 15, after which energies begin to subside.

The bigger changes will come this spring and summer.  For now work through your issues and keep as grounded and sane as possible.

See you next week,
