About Leo Knighton Tallarico
Transformational Counselor and Spiritual Guide, Founder: Spiritual Therapy Astrology
Leo grew up in Chicago where he managed and promoted Silva Mind Control Classes (focused meditation for psychic development) for the Midwest United States. This is also where he began his study of astrology, metaphysics, and psychology. In 1985, while in Madison, Wisconsin, he became a full-time professional astrologer, and in 1986 became accredited by the Professional Astrologers Incorporated, after having passed extensive examination.
Later that year, he relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area where he soon created Spiritual Therapy Astrology, a combination of psychological counseling, spiritual guidance and astrological wisdom. Leo then became staff counselor and trainer for Suicide Prevention in Berkeley. He was also a member of the Spiritual Emergence Network, begun by psychologists Stanislav and Christina Grof, an organization that assisted people through spiritual crisis, honoring each person’s unique spiritual journey and experience.
In 1990, he began publishing, To Be and Not To Be, a journal dedicated to Transpersonal Astrology, psychology and the evolution of human consciousness. He spoke at many conferences, bookstores, on radio and TV shows, taught classes at City College of San Francisco and the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, and was a weekly speaker at Amron Metaphysical Church in San Francisco.
In 1995, Leo, Deborah and their son Tralon relocated to Santa Fe, New Mexico where they began the Spiritual Renaissance Center. While in Santa Fe Leo created and hosted Renaissance Radio Hour, a weekly radio show on public radio dedicated to inspiring listeners into the Aquarian Age. He also did a weekly radio astrology forecast.
In December, 2003, Leo, Deborah and Tralon relocated to their new home in Portland, Maine. Leo is a full-time professional Astrologer, Psycho-Spiritual Counselor and Spiritual Guide, writer, editor of Spiritual Renaissance, and co-director of the Spiritual Renaissance Center with his wife Deborah. His approach is compassionate, deeply insightful, and transformational.
