2012 and Astrology Forecast for January 1- January 7

2012:   I remember back in August 1987 when I was first made aware of the Mayan Calendar and Jose Arguelles and the end date of 2012. It was the time of the Harmonic Convergence.  I was living in the San Francisco area, practicing as a professional astrologer and counselor, and often reflecting on the coming Aquarian Age.

So of course I made the correllation between the Mayan calendar and its ending of an old world in December 2012, and the transition between a Pisces Age and an Aquarian Age.

I was also aware at the time of Biblical predictions from Revelations of the end of the world and the Christ and the anti-Christ.

And 10 years later, while living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, I was educated in Hopi prophecy, which predicted a fast approaching end of an old age and the beginning of a New Age of respect for the Earth and unity between peoples of different races and ethnicities.  But this unity would come only after many natural disasters and world war.

It was apparent and still is, that there must be something really big happening in our world at this time, as so many different sources and cultures all believed we were entering a powerful and profound time on the Earth, when the world as we knew it was going to transform into a whole new world and age.

So ever since those New Age awakening years of mine, I have concentrated much of my work to this transition time here on the Earth, this time of changing our consciousness and lives in attunement with the approaching Aquarian Age.

And over the last few years, more and more people are becoming aware that the old paradigm for living on the Earth, one which believes in a survival of the fittest, dog eat dog mentality, is destroying our human family and our Earth and its creatures.  Many have been changing their consciousness and lives in alignment with the Universe, as it opens up the gates to a New World and Age.  They are finding the connections, not the separations anymore. They know their soul, mind, heart and body are all working together. They know all of humanity is of One Family. They know our Earth is our sacred home, and needs to be loved and cared for as all homes need to be.

Those on the path into a New World consciousness also know that those who hold power in the old world will not let go without help from the changes that come from nature and the Universe.   These great changes shake up our old reality, help us release the fears and toxins, and open us up to healthier ways of being and living.

Many have us were severely challenged in 2011, especially around the Eclipse seasons in June/July and November/December.  Many of our worst fears and old patterns came up to haunt us.    We needed to recommit to our journey into a New World consciousness of meaning, wholeness, connectedness, and love.   We have needed to more fully know that we are going through our challenges in order to be cleansed of old toxic programming, so we may more fully embrace that we are each on a sacred soul journey that is helping us to evolve our consciousness in alignment with the Aquarian Age we moving into.

Many of us have struggled in 2011 to let go of fear and doom thinking, let go of our old tapes inside our heads that wants us to believe we live in a world that does not support us and is not safe or loving.   We are letting go of the notion that life is not a good place to be, that it will always give us suffering and pain.

Some have endured bodily challenges that have frightened them.     Keep in mind that our bodies are also being shifted in order to be better prepared for the shift of ages.   We are being taken out of old habits that keep our bodies toxic and heavy.  The challenges in our bodies are meant to help us change our ways to more healthy ones and to change the vibrations in our souls and bodies. It is best not to go into fear and doom thinking that mainstream medicine encourages.  Some bodily disturbances now will stay only temporarily, so do not hang onto them with your fear.

Expect 2012 to bring more challenges and changes, as we move more fully forward into an Aquarian Age.  There will many surprises that shake up the status quo of the greater world in 2012.    War with Iran will create a Middle East war that will threaten world war. The economy in Europe will further deflate, which will affect all of the world, especially western civilization.   Climate Change will continue to bring weird weather patterns and natural disasters.    And it is quite possible that extraterrestrial life will make stronger appearances that cannot be denied.

Many believe that alien life is wanting to help us to awaken to the crisis that our human family and Earth are going though, so we can be more proactive in creating a healthier world aligned with the energies of the Age of Aquarius.

2012 will be a ferocious year of change, and astrologically speaking the signpost for this transformational change will be Uranus square Pluto, which makes its first pass in June 2012, during an eclipse season. Expect spring and summer 2012 to shift us all in big ways.  When Uranus and Pluto made their last major connection in 1965-66, it brought in the ’60s revolution.

It is best now to get into healthy habits that will support your commitment to keep a meaningful and wholistic consciousness. Meditation, healthy eating, communing with like minded people, going to healers and counselors, etc will give you a strong foundation that will weather the coming storms.

This is real! Our world as we know it is ending.  A New World is being born. The Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street are the beginning shoots of growth into liberation from the old world and its controls over our hearts and souls.   Be a part of the new and you will find your authentic self and a renewed sense of purpose.   The old messages that there is something wrong with you will be more fully released.  You were made just right and all you need to do is let your self blossom into Self actualization.

The week ahead, January 1 2012 to January 7 2012, is a waxing moon phase moving toward a Full Moon on January 9.

We have passed the darkest day of the year at the Winter Solstice, and moved past the Capricorn New Moon last week. And though we are now moving toward more light every day, there still is a lot of darkness. So do not beat your self up if you are sometimes feeling down now.

With the Sun still in Capricorn, it is a good time not so much to act, but to make long term plans.    And then after making those plans, one can begin to implement the plan through discipline and organization.     Through making these commitments, which can be aligned with New Year’s resolutions, one can better handle the nagging feeling that one is not doing what needs to be done. Capricorn time of year is a good time to put one’s life in order.

Wishing you a very satisfying and meaningful New Year 2012!

See you next week,

Leo

New Beginning at the Capricorn New Moon and Astrology Forecast for December 25- December 31

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , on December 24, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Today at the New Moon in Capricorn, we are moving out beyond the Eclipse Season.  And it was quite an intense and challenging time for many as Mercury was also Retrograde for most of the Eclipse Season.

Though the time was difficult for some, it did also feel like an initiation into a new cycle of life.

If you were out of balance in some area of your life, the shifts helped to take you out of your old habits.   Sometimes habits are addictions, and they keep us away from our deeper soul, from living in the moment.    As we live more from our deeper soul and live more in the moment, we live creatively and alive.

Important planetary passages, as was this recent Eclipse period, shake up our consciousness and lives and help us to let go of programming, old habits and ways that keep us from more authentic living.

As we release the old, we heal from the hurts of our past and transform our beliefs, attitudes, and lives.    We are then more ready to embrace the coming changes.   These intiations that we move through during important astrological transitions, help us to more fully embrace our changing world in a way that is aligned with nature and the Universe.

It is our collective mission, as we transition into an Aquarian Age, to heal our human family from its separations, to honor our Earth and its creatures, and to live in health and wholeness in our bodies, souls, and minds.   If we keep our focus on this mission, we will be ready for whatever the Universe brings our way.

2012 is a big year of change, bigger than the changes of 2011.   We are each being prepared, by the wisdom of the Universe, to serve our purpose and function in the New World developing.

So today at 1:06 PM EST there is a New Moon in Capricorn. It is a somewhat complicated Capricorn New Moon, in that it is widely conjunct Pluto and closely square Uranus. Uranus and Pluto are both transformational planets, so the usual steady and sober Capricorn will encounter more radical energies.

That means that there could be more shifting tides during this lunar cycle, which lasts from today December 24 until January 23 at the Aquarius New Moon, which also brings in the Chinese New Year of the Dragon.

There should not be the degree of intensity and challenge of the Eclipse Season, but nevertheless there will be shifting in accordance with what you experienced during the Eclipse Season.    If something shifted or changed for you during the Eclipse Season, there will be events that result from those changes for the month ahead.

Since Uranus is so close to being in square to the New Moon in Capricorn, there may be some new breakthroughs also.

Jupiter changes directions from Retrograde to Direct on Christmas Day December 25.  It is at the very beginning degree of Taurus.  Christmas Day should feel very positive and uplifting, yet not out of control.  There should be a recognition now that all has settled into a more comfortable place.

As Jupiter goes direct, all the planets are direct now, which is unusual This will end in late January as Mars goes retrograde then.

For now however all systems are go, all energies of the Universe are moving in forward gear.  It is a good time to think about the future and about the year ahead, which we will do next week.

See you then,

Leo

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.

See you next week,

Leo

Soul Searching and Astrology Forecast for December 11- December 17

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on December 10, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Today, at the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon and Uranus Direct, we shift our gears and open up to more fully embrace the changes. Mercury Goes Direct this week Tuesday to also help us to move forward.

The last few weeks we have been experiencing the Eclipse Season while Mercury has been retrograde.  It is good to keep in mind that we are also experiencing the days getting darker and darker on the way to a Winter Solstice on December 21/22.

It has been a very intense period, when we have been shaken out of our usual comfort zones, and challenged to let go and trust the process of nature and the Universe.

It is so easy in the modern world to go on cruise control with our lives, to live in habits, and to ignore the fact that there is deep mystery of life that has much influence over us.

At these times of great planetary shifting, we are made to be aware of the fact that there are powerful forces of the Universe influencing our consciousness and lives.

Life is not meant to be just a casual journey through material experience.   We have souls and those souls are connected to the Great Mystery.

We come here to Earth for a reason, not just to have the American dream of material comfort.

Our souls reveal to us that there is Oneness, that all is connected, that we are connected to one another, to nature, and to the Universe.

Our material bodies, which do separate us one from another, have a tendency in our current human paradigm, to assist us in ignoring the fact we have souls.

We are taught only to trust and believe in that which we can see and touch.  The inner spiritual dimension is not truly honored and is considered by many to be “wu-wu” or foolish and to be ridiculed.   We  are taught to approach all our issues or challenges in linear, “scientific” terms only.

If we have an illness, we see it in very linear terms, trying to fix it like fixing a car.

But our souls teach us wholeness and oneness, that our spirits, minds, soulls and bodies are connected, and that they are constantly interacting with one another.

To try to fix what is wrong with your body without healing your soul or soothing your mind or looking for the messages from nature and the Universe does not  truly heal the situation.  Instead it makes you reliant on mainstream thought and medicine from the old world we are leavng behind.

Religion from the old world does talk of souls, but mainly in the context of being moral or good so you can go to heaven not hell.

Soul in the new world is not about judgement, but about connection to the Universe and its principles, messages, cycles, and energies.

As you move through these challenging times now, concentrate on releasing your grip to the old world and its fear, guilt, rules, and judgements that imprison your soul in its programming.

Open instead to your inner wisdom, to the guidance of the Universe as seen through signs and symbols and sychronicities.

All that is happening to you is meant to assist your soul’s journey to more light and truth and love.  Pain is in ratio to how much you resist the movement forward into a new world.

So now at the turning of the wheels of the Universe during this eclipse season, let go of the false security of an old world that is dying, an old paradigm for living on the Earth that is dying. Open to the beauty that is You in your Authentic Self, connected to all other authentic selves- on the way to an Aquarian Age.

You can see all the freedom and liberation movements happening all over the world, including now here in the United States with OWS and in Russia the last few days also.

There is no stopping this movement forward into an Aquarian Age. It is as destined as the changing of seasons in the year. This a seasonal change of the Universe, from a Pisces Age begun over 2000 years ago to the cusp of an Aquarian Age we are now on.

Yes there will be much chaos and trouble in the greater world coming, but do your best to not hook into the dramas of fear, hatred, demonizing of enemies, and general mistrust of others and the world.  There will be explosive changes coming our way in 2012, but we each need to remind ourselves we have been born at this time for a reason.

Ask your self why you are here now at such an important time on the Earth. What is your role?  It can simply mean you are here to raise conscious children for a new world, or to spead more postive and loving energy to others. It can mean that you, as you evolve and transform your life into the Aquarian Age, are becoming a cell in the body of the collective of souls who are creating this new world.

This coming week, we begin to slowly move out of the Eclipse season, as we passed the last eclipse today December 10.   And finally Mercury goes direct this Tuesday evening.   Clarity gets stronger, the confusion lifts, the strange zone many of us have been in begins to pass.

But it will not be time to spread your wings and fly as we are moving into darker and darker days leading up to the Winter Solstice on December 22 at 12:30 AM on the east coast. It is at 9:30 PM on the west coast of the USA.

At this time of year, as the darkness settles in, we appreciate the blessings and people we do have in our lives, and we reach out our hearts to those who are suffering, alone, or are losing hope.  We know they are a part of each one of us, as each of us has felt despair or pain.

Yet as we leave the eclipses and Mercury Rerograde behind,  the intensity subsides and we begin to settle into and integrate the changes that have come our way.

We are in the holiday season now, and many people are able to still appreciate the deeper meaning of this season, beyond the commercial rate race.

See you next week,

Leo

Sorting for Truth and Astrology Forecast for December 4-10

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on December 3, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now in the middle of a twilight zone, begun November 24/25, when Mercury went retrograde and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius occurred.  On December 10 there will be a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius, and on December 13 Mercury goes back direct.

This time period, from November 24-December 13 is the time we stay in this twilight zone.    The haze should begin to clear after that. Then as we pass through the Winter Solstice on December 21 and a New Moon in Capricorn on December 24,  we should be on the other side of the insecurity.

Sorting through information  to find solution and answers can be difficult now.  The approaching Lunar Eclipse is in information and communication carrying Gemini.  Messenger of the Gods Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini.  It is now in often confusing retrograde.  So this is why information and communication issues are up in our face, and why there is fogginess about it all.

Sagittarius, where the Solar Eclipse occurred and where the Sun opposes the Moon for the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini, is about finding understanding, answers, and solutions.

But the natural way of sorting through information to find solutions is confused by Mercury Retrograde, and the issues are intensified because we are in an Eclipse Season.  Eclipse times also tend to cause breakdowns and possible breakthroughs also.

So all is a mess now for many people and worse a nightmare for some.

It is best now to not jump to any conclusions too fast. Using information in a strictly left brain logical way is not best now either.  One is best combining one’s linear mind with more right brain intuitive thought also.  Keep a spiritual perspective and do not get too caught up in negative thinking, which is often masked as “getting real”.  Realistic means looking for your truth, not what is conventionally true. Old ways of thinking often come up during Merccury Retrograde.

Remember that we are being moved by Universal cycles into new consciousness and lives, and OLD RULES do not apply anymore.

That does not mean you use non conventional or spiritual thinking as an excuse to avoid truth and escape reality. It means you will not allow your self to deny what you KNOW inside your self to be true. Of course now it may be difficult to know this truth, but keep firm about not allowing negative fear based thinking to rule you.

Your free mind and heart must be trusted more and more now as we move out of an old paradigm and age.    It is true it is not always good to move too fast, as you can get overwhelmed and feel quite insecure. But these powerful aspects challenge us to see the light of truth, not the doom of truth.

The Universe brings us situations that assist us to move in more healthy and whole directions, but the process is not always easy.

These times of challenging planetary waves are meant to help us to let go of the old ways and patterns and beliefs that no longer serve us. They are meant to help us to trust ourselves and our Universe more, and to come into our authentic selves and a more meaningful and purposeful life.

Let go of the negative programming that has kept you in fear of living your life alive and satisfied.   During these eclipse seasons the challenges to stay on our path sometimes get strong, but we are getting these challenges in order to firm our resolve.    The residuals you hold of negative thinking can be let go of now, so also let go of giving your power away to friends or partners or authority figures or conventional wisdom.

Instead search your heart and soul and mind for what is true.  And in that process you trust your own inner wisdom and empower yourself.

This does not mean you have to go it alone.  You can listen to people whose wisdom resonates with your sense of truth, whose wisdom you can sense is for the purpose of truly supporting you and your journey.

Family and old friends often try to keep a person in old boxes and want to see them in a familiar light. This does not mean they are bad people. It only means they have insecurities of their own which preclude their ability to be clear and healthy and to truly see YOU.

You do not necessarily need to let them go, but you will not be able to change them either.  The important issue to examine is if you can be with them and still be in your truth and power.

If not you will need to consider seeing them less often, or at the least keeping the conversation on safe ground.

So this week we are moving toward the Total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius/Gemini next Saturday December 10 at 9:36 AM EST.   On that same day Uranus will permeating the frequencies of our psyches as it goes direct that same day.

There is great opportunity as we approach next weekend for breakthroughs, for new inventive and original ways of seeing and thinking.    Keep an open mind and heart so the Universe can provide you with the viewpoint you need.

In the greater world, events tend to bring many people into fear.  The Powers that Were still carry much weight in our world.  But they are slowly losing their firm grip over people’s minds, hearts, and lives.

As we each claim our inherent right to freedom and self determination, we make clear intention to join with others who know the Earth and world belong to “God’s children”, all of us, not to those who are greedy and power hungry.

It has been told that Christ said that the meek shall inherit the Earth. Meek does not mean week and powerless. It means that we do not seek to dominate and control.  We seek instead to connect and make relationship, to heal and transform the human community on Earth to be one of love and compassion and service.

It is the foundation we need to usher in the Aquarian Age.

see you next week,

Leo
