We have passed through a seasonal portal today, Saturday September 22 at 10:49 AM EDT.    The scales of Libra held a perfect balance at that moment between Yin and Yang energies.  The Autumn Equinox was that portal, and it signifies the equality between light and dark minutes of the day.  After today, the dark yin minutes of the day increase as the light yang minutes recede.

The Autumn Equinox is like a “sunset” time of year, as we watch the warmth of summer’s sun lowering itself toward the horizon.  Greater darkness and colder weather is felt coming as we pass through this Fall Portal.   We open our arms to more gentleness, we want comfort and company for the colder darker nights ahead.

It is Sun in Libra time of year, and Libra brings us a soft and graceful entry into the yin half of the year.    The air is more fresh and clean, the leaves will be so pretty as they begin to fall from the trees.  It is almost as if a beautiful and loving angel is holding our hand as we transition into the darker side of life’s year.

And this year the intensity valve will be turned up higher then usual in the second chapter of autumn 2012.  That second chapter of our usual three monthly  autumn chapters is Scorpio. Pluto, the guardian of the Underworld, governs Scorpio time of year every year.    The boundary between the underworld and the surface of reality are thinner then, especially at Samhain (Halloween), when deeper realities push their way up to the surface of our consciousness.

This year the intensity of the underworld’s dramas will be more intense then usual because there is Mercury Retrograde for much of November, starting on Election day November 6; then a most powerful Scorpio Solar Eclipse New Moon on November 13; and a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini on November 28.  Additionally the transformational Uranus/Pluto square will be triggered again in November.

The rage between different religions and different cultures has been revealed the last couple weeks, after a movie that severely insulted Mohammed and Islam was broadcast.  The lid on Pandora’s box has just barely been lifted, November promises to release much more.

The deeper truths of our world, our economy, our history, the ulterior motives of many, will erupt into our consciousness soon.    The flat Earth illusions of our dying paradigm will be shattered.

Uranus conjunct Pluto in 1965/66 shattered the “Ozzie and Harriet”, “Father Knows Best” cover pictures for a corrupt and repressive Military/Industrial Complex that shackled women, blacks and the hearts and souls of humankind.   The 60s revolution was begun.

Now as Uranus and Pluto return in square in 2012-2015, we prepare our consciousness for more shattering of illusion, more breaking down of walls of Big Brother repression, and a growing liberation of humanity.     They sang “The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius” back in the ’60s.   Now we get ready for the Blossoming into the Age of Aquarius.

As the walls of our Flat Earth consciousness come down, it is revealed to us the truth of who we really are, where we really came from, what we are doing on our sacred Earth.  Science’s Big Bang Theory, Darwin’s limited view of progressive evolution, and religion’s simple minded view of creationism will be soundly shattered by startling new revelations.

We live in a vast Universe, with living beings residing in many places and within many frequencies.   Perhaps a  “seen by many” Visitation, maybe the Disclosures movie in December, perhaps other sources, will reveal truths that awaken us out of our collective old paradigm slumber.   These new truths will set us free.

We don’t need another hero, we don’t need another savior, we don’t need gurus or royalty or Big Government or Big Corporation or celebrities or aristocracy.   We need ourselves.  We will lead this world back to health, back to our hearts and souls, and forward to a Diversity in Unity Aquarian Age.

Let’s look at the highlights of the next two weeks, as next Saturday September 29 I will be out of town.   The next forecast will be October 6.

On September 29 there will be a very meaningful Full Moon.  It will be a Libra/Aries Full Moon at 11:19 PM. It will be more powerful than the usual Libra/Aries Full Moon because Uranus and Pluto will make a close T-square pattern with the Full Moon. The Full Moon will have the Sun in Libra and the Moon in Aries at over 7 degrees of those signs.  Uranus will be between 6 and 7 degrees of Aries, conjunct the Moon, and Pluto will be between 6 and 7 degrees of Capricorn, squaring Sun, Moon, and Uranus.

Aries is force, action, self assertion. Libra is peace, civility, relationship assertion.  With Pluto and Uranus making powerful transformational impact to those energies, we can expect issues of peace versus conflict; my needs versus your needs or our needs; action versus social awareness, to take on major significance.   Your usual way of doing business between these extremes will be strongly challenged.  Finding a bridge between the differences, without sacrificing one side or the other will be the key to success for this lunation.

On October 4 Jupiter will be stationary, changing directions from Direct to Retrograde.  Its expansive energy will be felt and since it is in Gemini, it will expand in its reception and deliverance of details and information.   Communication and sorting through of information will be important. Some may be overwhelmed by rushes of details or information around this day.

On October 5, Saturn will enter Scorpio and stay there until 2014/15.    It may be quite helpful to track back from late 1982 to late 1985, the last time Saturn was in Scorpio.  Saturn in Scorpio puts the security anchor of our lives in deeper reality.  Issues you have pushed back below your conscious awareness may need more of your attention over the next few years.   That which is deeply real may be challenging at first, but will anchor you in reality and hence give you more of a sense of security.

If you were born during most of late ’82 through 1985 or from late 1953 to late 1956 you will be experiencing a Saturn Return  over the next few years.

The ’80s crowd will experience their first Saturn Return, a time of maturity into adulthood and more fully taking responsibility for your self and life. No matter so much haw you were conditioned by society and family, as you learn you must choose your life path now, in accordance with Universal destiny. If you have been living a lie, living your life for your parents or some artificial reality, your old life will break down around Saturn Return, to clear the path for your authentic soul’s path.

Those ’50s births will be at their second Saturn return, a time to let go of the years of making family and climbing the ladders of success. Kids are usually grown, success has been found or not, and attention turns to greater spirituality, more dedication to creative or service endeavors, grandchildren, etc.  It is a time to decide whether your last third of life will be going downhill till death, or staying motivated and positive.

See you in October,

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,

Beyond Culture Wars and Astrology Forecast September 8-14

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on September 8, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Today Saturday September 8 begins the last quarter moon in Gemini.   This is the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began with a New Moon in Leo on August 17.   This coming week is for reflection, rumination, and cleanup and preparation for a new lunar cycle, which will begin next Saturday September 15 with a New Moon in Virgo.

The Republican and Democratic conventions happened during this current lunar cycle, which is coming to an end this week.   The next two lunar cycles will lead us up through Election Day November 6.

Many people are acting as if this election is do or die.  Some are feeling that if Romney wins their worst nightmare will come true.  Others feel the same way if Obama is reelected.

In many ways the battle is a culture war between people who are comfortable in ’40s/’50s culture versus people who are more comfortable in ’60s/’70s culture.

In one culture there is often dad at work and mom at home, with more innocence and self and family protection.  There is the bible and strong reliance on its perceived judgments: like homosexuality and abortion are sins.  Right and wrong are seen in more certain ways. There is still a sense of neighborhoods that are mostly white, and that males or at least male values run the world. The business model is the revered model to live by.

The other culture is more varied in its families, many single parent households, men and women both working, gay households, and a more permissive attitude on what is right and wrong.  There is a sense that religion is too judgmental, that intellect and science and humanism give better guidelines for living.   Government and non-profit organizations are  the revered model to live by.  There is more  a sense of multi-culturalism and diversity, and feminine values are more likely to be honored over male ones.

In 2008 Obama won largely because of the youth vote, and those youths were not really part of either culture.  They were looking for true transformation beyond the two party, two cultures to choose from model of living. Obama spoke to them as someone who promised change beyond the old ways.

Many of those same young people liked Ron Paul in this election cycle, as some his viewpoints leaned to one culture and some to another. Ron Paul has been against military involvement in other countries and is for legalizing or at least decriminalizing drugs. But he is also for a more conservative fiscal policy, and not too much government interference in people’s lives.

The movement in the world now, and of course America is a part of the world, is toward a New Aquarian Age, an age which brings us beyond the old models of living on this Earth.

Both parties, no matter what the cultural differences, are dominated by special interests and corporate control. Both are for a military that dominates the world. We are still killing many innocent people in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and were part of the force to destabilize Libya.  We apparently assassinated Osama Bin Laden, without due process or trial. We have our troops and ships all over the world, and would invade other countries again if we felt in was in our best interests.

Remember, at this crucial time in our human world destiny, that having a free heart, soul, and mind are especially important. Thinking for yourself, and wanting Universal principles and values to be more important than wearing uniforms of political parties is essential now.

And is it not time to integrate male and female, yin and yang values into Unity?  There is no one way to be or one way to live.  There are many.  “Us versus Them” mentality is separating us all one from another. The “other” party is not your enemy, and we will not be doomed because one or the other party wins in November.

The picture is much bigger than that.    The powerful cleansing and healing of our world continues either way.    The force of new enlightenment and awakenings will break through the cracks of the Old World, no matter what. Nothing can stop the power of the Universe to bring us an Aquarian Age, as it is like one season ending to begin the next season.  Summer changes to Autumn no matter who is president. Pisces Age to Aquarian Age, either way.

What does matter, however, is what values we bring with us from past times from various cultures, into the New Age.   There is value in the innocence and more certain rules for living of one culture; as there is value in acceptance of all peoples and ways of the other culture.

We need to value the better values in every way, and bring them with us into the new world.   White business men are no more the enemy than a feminist socialist woman, for instance.  Both provide a needed voice in our world.

So we now approach a most powerful late summer and autumn, with Uranus square Pluto on September 18/19; Saturn moving into Scorpio for a couple years beginning in early October; Mercury going retrograde on Election Day November 6; a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on November 13;  a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini on November 27; and the end of the Mayan Calendar on December 21 2012.

There will be much opportunity to release old patterns and ways that no longer serve you; and there will be new streams of consciousness to awaken and enlighten you.   You will have much opportunity to heal old wounds, to transform your consciousness and life, to further integrate your psyche into greater wholeness, and to self actualize.

The foundation for a New World is not found in our political victories, but in our inner spiritual growth.

We are collectively ready to go to another level, one that is not limited by culture wars and political battlegrounds.    We seek Unity, Diversity in Unity, and equality and equal value of all peoples regardless of what culture they come from or believe in.

See you next week,


I will be broadcasting some radio shows on blog talk radio in October/November. I will let you know the dates soon. I will also do a new YouTube presentation then also. And here is the the link to YouTube talk I gave a few months ago at our Spiritual Renaissance Center.

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,
