Full Moon Transformations and Astrology Forecast October 13-19

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week begins with a very powerful Full Moon in Libra/Aries that makes a very close square to Pluto; and Pluto is stronger than usual and is still moving relatively slow, because it went back Direct as recently as October 3.

So we experience the usual back and forth archetypal polarity between Aries and Libra, which  is also duality between Mars and Venus,  yang (Mars, Aries)  and yin (Venus, Libra), or male (Mars) and female (Venus).

And as it becomes a futile attempt for connection and balance between these opposites, Pluto then tends to blow it all up for a reboot.

And so many people this last week have had “on the edge” experiences- relationship breakups; deaths;  injury or illness with friends and pets;  job loss or job challenges; or needs to leave their homes soon.

This is Pluto’s influence on it all, an explosive energy intent on breaking down old ways, then providing space and time for new birth.

And this is just a transformational appetizer, as the big meal of transformation is December/January.  At that time we will be in Winter Eclipse Season with two eclipses, one of which connects with the not usual conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn.

Out in the mainstream world, much at times feels very dark, disconnected, and hopeless.

Leadership in USA now is inconsistent, self focused, defensive, hateful, and apparently not really concerned with doing what is right and honorable. Truth and Love do not have fertile ground for growth and many people are quite frightened.

We are coming up to the “dark before the dawn” chapter of our collective lives.

The rot of the old paradigm is getting smellier and more ugly.  We need to let it go. We need to bury it.

There is no real hope in bringing back the Obama years, or the ’60s or “80s, or to more innocent times gone by.

Bu we are quite able to enter a new and different consciousness frequency, one connected to the Age of Aquarius, Truth and Love, Diversity Within Unity.

But each of us needs to let go of our being locked up in our heads, of our needs to be in control all the time, of our fears running our lives and making our decisions.

At the same time as our mainstream world feels like it is being sucked into some black hole of ego despair,  I can feel more connections and Love all around, and much more ability to find Truth within the trickster deflections.

In the human collective there are lower and higher frequencies to be immersed into. The lower ego frequency is what much of the mainstream world revolves around.  The higher frequency of the divine God/Goddess realms is where those who are evolving can better connect with.

But ultimately it is the marriage between the two that takes us forward in our evolution. And Chiron is the bridge between the two realms.

We must feel our human feelings and hear our ego’s fears, but they cannot be in charge.  Running the show needs to be left in the loving hands of our Higher Self, our Heart and Soul, our connection to Spirit.

On Sunday the 13th at the Full Moon in Aries at 5:08 PM EDT, with Pluto exactly squaring that Moon and Jupiter exactly trining that Moon, there  are differing energies trying to connect with one another. Some wanting to fly up higher, some wanting the depths below.

Best bet is to let go of control, of our controlling minds, and surrender to the vast waters of outer space, to the Love and Truth that move through the veins of the Universe and into you and me.

Meditate, get lost in nature or music or loving connections with your soul family.

On Monday October 14 the Sun squares Pluto, which means that the prince of the dark underground Pluto wants to connect with the shining hope of the Sun in balanced Libra.

So Pluto will carry the shining Sun into the underground lair of Pluto.  One of Pluto’s faces is Kali, and she always desires to carry inflated ego heads into her inner dungeon of atonement, which is at-one-ment.

Down there on her shelves are the heads of those who were filled with hubris, like Nixon and Clinton.

She has an empty space waiting for the Donald. It will not be too much longer before he arrives, by hook or crook as they say- by impeachment or election loss.

But we must all learn our lessons through all of this. We Americans have created this.  When the highest priorities of a culture are materialistic, with such strong needs for fame and fortune, it creates Donalds as out-growths of those priorities.

So we are cleaning up and purging our old ways that are so divorced from our “better angels”.

Each of us needs purpose in our lives, each of us has a function within the larger community.  This is Age of Aquarius consciousness, a social consciousness.

Climate Change is recognized in our social consciousness, in our desires to care for the future of the human family here on Earth.

Paying attention to our material needs is important too, as it reflects our reality right now.

But it does not need to be our highest priority. Saving our world and future is our highest priority. Within that paradigm, we learn to survive and thrive on the material plane too. It is not black or white.

So we are then spiritual beings living in a material world, needing material support to hold our higher values and to help manifest those values into solid structures on Earth.

We are not instead material beings searching for spiritual support and meaning, so we can keep our more base values in control of our existence.

As we are experiencing now, all is rapidly changing- death of the old is coming in more forcibly and frequently.

So let any chains on your legs be released. It is time to break free of anything holding you back from your authenticity and from your higher values.  As you choose to move forward now, assistance will be there for you, from other planes of existence if needed.

And yes we can feel the breath of beings from somewhere else disclosing their existence on this plane of reality.

We are meeting them half way between our usual frequencies and theirs.

Stop giving the Donald so much attention and power.  Concentrate on your higher values, your function and purpose, on your heart desires.  We cannot let our demons run our minds and hearts with fear and hopelessness.
