Shifting tides this week with Mars entering Capricorn, New Moon  in Pisces, Spring Equinox and Mercury Retrograde.

This means the energy fields we move within are changing this week.  The changes will shift our consciousness and lives in preparation for the Portal Opening on April 15.

It is obvious now that the greater world and culture we reside within is in a chaotic and not so predictable state of being.   The White House is reflective of this state of being, and it is in shambles, and always in some sort of transition.

And of course whether you feel in alignment with the new Administration or not, this Administration and its volatility are a symbol of the condition of the USA right now.

The Stock Market and economy; the Mueller probe; the porn actress’s accusations; the growing dangers with Iran, Syria, Israel, North Korea; the trade wars; and the macho strutting with Russia and China put all of us on our toes waiting for even greater changes.

We are in the midst of an enormous transformation of the country and world.

Trump is not causing the chaotic climate that makes us ripe for such transformation. He is instead a lead actor on the world stage, just the right actor to help facilitate world events that will take us to the edge of darkness,  so we can call on the Phoenix who will rise from the ashes of our old paradigm’s burning.

Some are already getting into survivalist mode, while others not as alarmed are  still being called to make changes in their consciousness and lives, changes that are aligned with the world we are moving into.

Others of us are not sure what direction to move toward, and are seemingly waiting for events to unfold to show the way.

The next few weeks will not show us clear direction, however, especially so because Mercury is going Retrograde on March 22 at 8:19 PM EDT.

As usual the ‘re’s will in charge during Mercury Retrograde: rewind, reflect, readjust, rebalance, remind, realign.

There is much processing to do now, as it is not time now to move toward bottom line decisions and even bottom line logical answers.

Allow Mercury Retrograde to have you go inward to reflect, to question what has been previously understood or decided, to bring to you memories of the past and to bring back people to you from your past.

The people from the past will likely not stay with you after they return, though sometimes they do.  The questioning of previous understandings and decisions does not mean you will truly change your direction from what you have chosen, but sometimes it does.

The New Moon in Pisces this Saturday the 17th was at 9:12 AM EDT.  Though it is a New Moon, Pisces is not a sign of action to move forward.

Pisces brings everything together in integration and unity, to get ready for the movement forward later, this time after the New Moon in Aries on April 15.

Pisces is the sign for the last month of winter here in the Northern Hemisphere. It is the transition sign for moving into new beginnings of Spring.

As such we now do soul searching, shadow integration, and getting in touch with deeper feelings;  especially feelings of sadness and grief, of fading memories, of snapshots of previously not remembered early life events.

We face ghosts of the past,  want to resolve old issues, and hopefully find some closure.

This Pisces time we are doing even deeper soul diving than usual, wanting to gather everything together in anticipation of the coming forward movement in our lives, collectively and personally.

There may be some energetic confusion as we also experience the beginning of spring this week.  It is on Tuesday March 20 at 12:15 PM EDT.

This is the first moment of the Sun’s movement into Aries, as it does to begin every Spring Equinox.

Aries is the force of new life buds bursting through the branches. It is a baby being born, a teenager’s awkward movement form childhood to adulthood.  It is a new challenge, a competition, showing a new way, standing up for yourself or what you believe in, being brave even when you are afraid,  fighting the good fight, self assertion, self honoring, alpha attitude, and taking action.

The confusion may come from the fact that Mercury is going Retrograde and there is a need to process and rewind before truly moving forward.

So use this Spring Equinox Aries entry to begin to wake yourself up! Winter is over, even if the weather still feels like Winter.  The turning point energetically is happening this week, so get in touch with that energy and wake your self from the doldrums of Winter, from being kinda depressed from such a harsh and difficult winter.

No need to go fast forward, just wake up. Soon there will be the need for action and for fresh events to manifest. But not now. Even action oriented Mars is being affected by the gravity of Capricorn now.

It moved into Capricorn on the 17th at the New Moon in Pisces. It will stay in Capricorn until May 16, when it goes into Aquarius.

But this year Mars will go back into Capricorn from mid August till Mid September.

The reason is because Mars goes Retrograde on June 26, then retraces its previous steps.

Mars in Capricorn takes away the spontaneous and sometimes impulsive instinct of Mars.

Mars puts on a uniform of military or police when in Capricorn, giving it discipline and boundaries, rules and structure to act within.

So with Mars now in Capricorn, it is time to ground your actions, to make goals and commitments, to organize and plan, to make manifest.

Just remember that we are in Mercury Retrograde until April 15, so there may be some confusion till then, and if you are not that confused, you will still need to wait before manifesting or making absolute statements.

After April 15 the train of our lives starts it engines, but remember that Mercury will just begin to be Direct that day, so total clarity may still need to form, and movement will still not be fast forward. Big events will likely be a few weeks or a few months away then.

So with all this knowledge look at the country and world.  The White House will still be rearranging the deck chairs of its Titanic voyage.

There  will be more employee firings and hirings this coming month, more drama and confusion, more setting the stage for coming events.

Trump is planning to meet with Kim Jong Un in April or May; the USA is moving its embassy to Jerusalem in May. Other important world events will spring forward in April, May and later this year.

Your life and consciousness are working out  what needs to be worked out now. Do your best not to judge your self now or what you did or didn’t do in the past.

Let go of old stories that keep you stuck.  Let go of old stories that make you feel like a victim or loser or failure or horrible person.

The past, no matter what it was, is a stepping stone for your life as it grows and transforms into one of purpose and authenticity, one of love and forgiveness.

Love yourself from all time periods and ages of your life. Have compassion for your self, for the seeming mistakes you might have made. Forgive yourself and others as best you can organically.

It is almost time for us all to move forward more fully into this New Chapter of our lives on the way to the Age of Aquarius.

And the less baggage we take with us from our past the better.  No you will not be able to tie a pretty bow on all those traumas and disappointments, disillusions and heart wounds.

But you can forgive, learn to trust enough, and have faith all happens with meaning.

You can gain enough closure to be able to move forward. But do not despair if all has not been worked out to total satisfaction. It never is perfect.

Till next week,

Stand Up and Astrology Forecast March 11-17

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 10, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Most of this week has us in the last quarter of the lunar cycle.   That is until The New Moon in Pisces on Saturday March 17 at 9:12 AM EDT.

Yes for most we will be on Daylight Savings Time starting this Sunday the 18th.  So in a way we get mixed messages.   We get more waking light minutes of the day, while still in the dark of Winter and while moving through the last and darkening phase of the Moon.

Spring will begin next week on March 20th, but then will be closely followed by Mercury going Retrograde on March 22.

There is so much swirling in the world around us now, and much of it brings uncertainty and has us moving into unknown territory.

Trump and Kim Jong Un of North Korea seem to have agreed on a personal meeting that will apparently concentrate on North Korea denuclearizing.  With Mercury going Retrograde soon, there will likely be many difficulties on the path toward a meeting and denuclearizing.

Between now and April 15 at the Aries New Moon conjunct Uranus, Mercury going back Direct, and a Yod Finger of God aspect with the USA natal Mars, much will be shifting and changeable. 

That Finger of God to the USA natal Mars will be a major turning point for the USA military, the police, and gun laws.

North Korea will either look like a major conflict is on the way, or instead it will be more certainly moving toward a peaceful solution.  The meeting between the two leaders is intended to be by May.

And the USA is moving its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem also in May.  This could be cause for much anger in the Arab and Muslim world.

So you can see how the April 15 portal opening that includes the Yod to the USA Mars, may play out with North Korea and Israel/Palestine.

Keep in mind also that Donald Trump was born on a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius.  That new moon has the Sun at 22+ degrees Gemini and his Moon at 21+ degrees of Sagittarius. The USA natal Mars is at 21+ degrees of Gemini, so you can see that what is coming will powerfully affect both the USA and Donald Trump.

A few days later on the 18th, Saturn goes Retrograde and its gravitational certainty will be circulating strongly in our collective energy field. The feeling of fate is in the air then

Make no mistake about it, mid April is a major turning point for this country and world.

That does not mean big events will necessarily explode on that day, but it does mean the portal will open for major events coming soon afterward.

The stock market and economy also deserve attention now and after the portal opens.

Trump’s presidency also is being threatened now, as the Russia investigation keeps picking up steam. After the 15th events will accelerate even more.

Remember however, that this coming week of March 11- 17 will bring energies that are moving inward and yin-ward, downward and for finishing up and processing.

So many personal lives are now up in the air, waiting for coming changes or uncertain what to do or what direction to take.

And certainty will be even more elusive as we get into Mercury Retrograde soon.

So do your best now to be patient and wait. Otherwise you will get anxious and stressed, or depressed.  Sometimes we must wait for clarity and direction to appear, as linear bottom line answers do not easily form.

Yet there is much to be gained in the process of waiting.  Our souls can be very enriched while processing our thoughts and feelings, while meeting up against our hopes and fears, while learning more about ourselves and others.

In the greater world, so much has shifted in the last couple of years or so.    The paradigm the world has known is obviously shifting, even with the difficulties and disappointments we are now experiencing.

We are also being reminded of what is wrong with our world. Why has fame and fortune become the American Dream?  Even in many so-called liberal circles, wealth and notoriety, pedigree and privilege are such a high priority to gain.

Where have the values of our “better angels” gone?  Where has our empathy and compassion gone? How about kindness, integrity, truth, honesty, dignity, respect, and heart centered love?

Why does it seem that money, power, and privilege have become culturally more important than those values?

What kind of world are we delivering to our kids and grandkids?

I heard one young man who survived the Florida school massacre say to Bill Maher on his show:  Paraphrased he passionately said that previous generations have f’d up our world and so this new generation will have to fix it.

And are we setting an example for them? How many have given up their more idealistic  values from their youth because the “real” world has disillusioned and disappointed them, so they decided to play the game instead of keeping the integrity of their better values? And in the process, what has happened to their souls.

For those who have done that, you can work to bring those values back now so we can fight with these kids for a New Paradigm for living with each other and or Earth home.

And following the rules is not the same as holding better values.  Inner values reflect what your mind, heart, and soul know to be true, known to be what brings us together with respect and love.

It is time for each of us to speak up for what we know is right, as has begun to happen with women who are speaking up like never  before, and like how young people are beginning to speak up about guns, etc.

Yet it is time for all of us to stand up and speak our truth.  Keeping quiet is the same as agreeing.  It enables the bad behavior and bad attitudes.

And in your personal life too, you do not need to keep quiet about what is bothering you.  You can stand up and speak your truth.

The condition of your life is your responsibility.  You are not a helpless victim.

The condition of our world is our collective responsibility. We are not victims.

We the people are the ones who will transform the world into the Age of Aquarius.

Don’t concentrate on those who seem to not be redeemable and who will not change.

Focus on attracting those who want to bring the Age of Aquarius values to the real world- as you do.

It is a waste of time trying to convince others to believe.

Be confident in what you believe, and be an example for others to follow. Who you are speaks volumes.

Till next week

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 3, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We pretty much leave Eclipse Season this coming week.  And Jupiter switches from Direct to Retrograde late Thursday March 8, putting an end to the rare event of All Planets being Direct, which has been happening since the first of this current year.

And later this week, on Friday March 9, we begin the last quarter of a lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15. A new lunar cycle begins at the Pisces New Moon on March 17.

Where are we both collectively and in our personal lives now?

We will now be able to process all the changes, events, emotions, thoughts, etc. that have been swirling in our lives this Eclipse Season.

Then after Mercury goes Retrograde on March 22, we will have even more time and inclination to reflect, ponder, analyze, and go deeper into our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls.

Then after April 15, the dogs are released through the Portal that will be opened then. There will be then a New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus, Mercury going Direct, and a Yod Finger of God encompassing the USA natal Mars.

This will be a time of important of new starts, and important world and personal events that will mostly be understood in the context of the events of the last two Eclipse Seasons.

Much has happened in our personal and collective lives since last July 2017.  Much has happened more specifically since this last January 2018, when Winter Eclipse Season 2018 began.

Remember also that on Winter Solstice 2017, Saturn went into its favorite sign Capricorn  on Winter Solstice day, making a strong conjunction with the Sun in Capricorn. This gave us a Winter ’17/’18 signature.

That signature told us how serious and down turning winter would be, and how gravity (ruled by Saturn and Capricorn) would bring a metaphorically quite strong down-pull or down-fall.

In large part because of that knowledge I predicted a severe downward turn of the then “flying high mania”  Stock Market.

And it was so.

And this is only the beginning of the downturn, which will become a crash, and then an important transformation of the USA and world economies.

The future holds a much more Bernie Sanders kind of economy, and a severely transformed world into Diversity within Unity for an Age of Aquarius.

In the meantime the process will not be pretty.  There is a USA downfall that we are experiencing led by the Trump administration, very likely coming major wars in the world, and a continued internal USA civil and culture war.

This chaos will bring many governments to try to overly control their citizens, while said chaos will also bring much creative energy to stand up to the controls and to what has been a largely corrupt and unfair old world structure. This “standing up” is already in gear.

Movement to overthrow this current USA administration through impeachment will continue to grow.

All this turmoil is a clearing for the Age of Aquarius,  coming on the heels of the chaos.

I promise videos and podcasts soon (before April 15), and some will be with David Sanipass as we did last year.

This week we experience Jupiter going Retrograde on Thursday and the 4th quarter of the current lunar cycle beginning on Friday.  And before all that both Mercury and Venus will enter Aries on Tuesday the 6th of March (my birthday).

Venus and Mercury leave flowing and sensitive Pisces to be in straight forward, direct, and assertive Aries for awhile.

Both Venus and Mercury are relational planets, so relationships can expect to be more sometimes brutally honest with one another.

If you have been walking on eggs with someone, not wanting to upset them or the status quo, you will start feeling more motivated to assert your truth with them.

In world affairs the same thing will be happening, as people will stop mincing words and instead be more open about what they want to assert.  Aries challenges and confronts, often with force.

On Thursday when up-lifting and expansive Jupiter is stationary waiting to change directions, there should be a spike in hopeful and joyful feelings.  But that will in many cases be temporary, as Jupiter will then go Retrograde for the next 4 months.

Also as Jupiter is changing directions, some people will be impulsive, saying what they would not normally say or jumping into something without caution.

The last quarter Moon is in Sagittarius on March 9. That means the Sun is in laid back Pisces, being countered by free spirited adventurous Sagittarius.  You could be conflicted between those two quite different ways of being.

We will be in the last quarter till March 17 at the New Moon in Pisces. As usual the last quarter opens us up to process and reflect on what has been and where we are at.

Sometimes energies or events are so accelerated or intense, that we lose ourselves or our perspective.

In this 4th quarter and beyond, through the soon approaching Mercury Retrograde, all the way to  April 15; we have the ability to gather ourselves, to shake off the dust of recent experiences, and to look our lives and selves right in the eye of truth.

If you judge yourself or others too harshly now, however, you will be unaligned and taken off track.   You are human and we make mistakes, and all we can do is apologize if need be, atone (at-one), learn form the mistakes, and promise our selves to do our best to never repeat the same mistakes.

Many of you who regularly read this blog, consider your self on a soul’s journey.  And right now, our souls are in the beginning stages of a world storm, a storm that seeks to shake up the status quo.  It is not an easy time for many now.

I know many of you are quite concerned and sometimes fearful of what is happening to our country and world..

If you look from a bigger picture at our human story over the past hundreds of years, you will see many challenges and forks in the road.  And though we sure messed up a lot, we also are quite resilient and resourceful and creative.  And we have been incredibly loving and caring so much of the time, even if history books do not tell us that.

We have created such works of beauty and artistry, built awesome civilizations, adventurously travelled so far, even to the Moon.  We are the only Earth creatures to do all this.

Yes we have also been so nasty, murderous, self serving, greedy, and hateful.

But we always do seem to somehow grow and evolve in so many ways.

And we are all now so close to one another through mass communication, social media,  mass transportation, world commerce, and all together under the Sun and Moon, and having the same basic human needs.

So now our growing edge is knowing and honoring our connections, not seeing ourselves as all separate and enemies with one another. It is no longer good enough to only know connections based on negotiations, trades, and contrived circumstances.

It is time to know and honor that we are all connected in our hearts and souls naturally, all parts of the same human family.  It is time to know that the Universe has all the dots connected, not random. It is time to know we live a meaningful existence, on a sacred home planet, in a beautiful diverse Universe, all together as One.

Dark and light, male and female, yin and yang- many differences but all connected as One.

Deeply knowing all this will help us to evolve to our next level, all in alignment with the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Humble, Grateful, Surrendered and Astrology Forecast February 25- March 3

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on February 24, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

During the Sun in Pisces time of year now, we process, reflect, and go deeper into greater insights and sensitive feelings.

We are still in Eclipse Season even though the last of two eclipses this season is now in our rear view mirror.

That last eclipse, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius, was on February 15.  As a new moon, it began a lunar cycle and motivated new beginnings.

These Aquarius beginnings are about groups, communities, and social consciousness.  It also is about respecting our own and others’ distinct individuality, even if said individualism is outside the usual boxes and social confines.

So now people are more galvanized to identify with “birds of a feather” groups or communities they feel resonant with.

In the larger world, there is a very polarized and combative separation between USA cultures or groups.

Around that Solar Eclipse in Aquarius there was another horrific mass killing in a high school in Florida.

One of the most glaring fallouts of those murders has been a spotlight shown on the differences between two USA communities.

One is getting more and vociferous about limiting accessibility to military style weapons that have been involved in so many mass murders of innocent people.

The other group, backed by the NRA, is not very open to any gun law changes.  They persist in believing citizens need those weapons in order to defend against a potentially tyrannical USA government of the future. Interestingly many corporations since the massacre are severing their contractual ties to the NRA because of community outrage with laws.

These two distinctly different USA cultures came out of any closets they were in during the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo last August.   Charlottesville riots happened then and caused the murder of a young woman.

Make no mistake about it, these culture wars resemble the differences between cultures during the USA Civil War in 1860-1865.   Southern plantation owners owned slaves and wanted to keep them so that their financial profits could be maintained or increased.

There were two very distinctly opposed cultures that did not live together very well.

And now rural and southern USA people are so different than people in more cosmopolitan areas of the USA.

Something is breaking apart within the USA.  The recent downfall of the USA Stock Market shows more potential for the breakdown of the current system in the USA.

And in the world outside the USA borders, there are growing USA war cries against Iran and North Korea, two countries than were deemed “Axis of Evil” by George Bush.

The Trump administration is showing that it will bully those countries into stopping their nuclear programs, even as Iran has been part of an agreement to hold back that nuclear program. They have not broken the rules of that agreement.

The USA invaded North Korea in the early ’50s and destroyed much of the North while killing so many of its people.  And so now North Korea has determined it cannot trust the USA and must defend itself with nuclear weapons that the USA already has in great abundance and has used.

And both Israel and the USA are putting Iran in their crosshairs.  The USA controlled Iran and put up a puppet president that they dominated.

Then Iran had its revolution in 1979 which threw out that old government and USA dominance there.

The threat of war against North Korea, Iran, and Syria is very real now. And Russia and China could also get involved.

After April 15 is when the threats of war and a bigger stock market crash will get stronger and stronger.

The System of the USA is in the process of transformation, and it must go back to its beautiful core values in that process.

Self Determination, freedom and liberation, equality and justice for all are Universal values that apply to All peoples all over the world.

We have invaded other countries, like Iraq and Syria and Libya, that have not attacked us, nor do they pose much realistic threat to destroy the most powerful country in the world. We have all too often imposed our values and ways of governing on others without their consent.

Can you imagine how we would react to any country that invaded us (for our own good they would say) or tried to dominate us into living our lives as they deemed correct?

The USA natal Pluto in Capricorn in its second house is being squared by Uranus in Aries. This is the beginning of the transformation of the USA military and economic power in the world.  Within the next 4-5 years Saturn, Jupiter, and then Pluto itself will conjunct the USA natal Pluto (its first Pluto Return).

This is the timeframe for transformation of the USA Military/Economic Complex that dominates so much of our country’s “we the people”. as well as the peoples’ of the world.

This transformation will help create the new Age of Aquarius, an age of Diversity within Unity, equality, and freedom.

The USA Moon in Aquarius, which so represents this new age, is shown in our Constitution and Bill of Rights. We believe in Equality, Freedom of Expression, Self Determination, and liberation of all peoples so they can, as “we the people”, govern and take responsibility for our human community and sacred Earth.  This is for all peoples, cultures, genders, sexual orientations, spiritual or religious ways of being or non religious ways of being-  All Over the World.

This week, the now passed Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius has transitioned to the full moon, a Full Moon in Virgo on March 1 at 7:51 PM EST. This full moon has Neptune strong in its signature.

Full Moons in Virgo always have the Sun in Pisces opposite the Moon in Virgo.

This is a relatively gentle full moon energetically, one that requires a letting go of ego controls, and a surrender to something greater than one’s ego. Neptune makes it even more necessary to let go and surrender. Spaciness, foggy mind, imagination, and contact with inner spiritual world may be stronger at this time.

Virgo is into service, simplicity, order, and physical purity.  It is most resonant with the “real” world.

Pisces is into being in frequencies, dimensions, feelings, and tones that are not not seen in the material world.  It seeks purity of the psyche, feelings and emotions.

Music sounds and feelings are a world of Pisces.  Virgo is the techniques and instruments that allow the music to be heard and felt.

Meditation is Pisces but the techniques used to get into that deeper meditative state is Virgo.

When body and soul are united, Pisces and Virgo are in balance.   Pisces goes with the flow, Virgo needs to be in charge of efficiency and creating order.   Virgo needs perfection and the ability to fix what is not perfect.

Pisces needs to let go and trust that all will turn our fine if we surrender our control.

So use this Full Moon in Pisces/Virgo to process and heal, to reconcile, to show what we can be grateful for, to humble us.

We are all moving in our consciousness and lives into just where we need to be to meet the changing World around us.

Remember that all is happening for a reason, and in the bigger picture you are growing, learning, and evolving in alignment with the Universe and our Soul Self.

If “we are the ones we have been waiting for”, we must know that the challenges in the World are OUR challenges, ones we are very equipped to deal with, no matter how it may look on the outside.

If we let fear take over we lose our way.

In the bigger picture all is evolving into the Age of Aquarius.  And it could not happen if there was not enormous change and transformation, or if we hung on too tightly to what used to be, or if we demand change happens exactly the way we need it to happen.

Till next week,

What is Real? and Astrology Forecast February 18-24

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 17, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week we passed through the second and last eclipse of this Winter 2018 Eclipse Season, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.

This Eclipse Season will continue however till about March 8.  More shifting tides are coming.   More processing of what has been shifting will happen after that until around April 15.

Then events will accelerate after that and new movement forward will begin.

There is a New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus on April 15.  And Mercury that day will go direct after a previous 3 weeks of being Retrograde.

And in the greater world, specifically the USA, Jupiter and Pluto will exactly sextile one another while making a Yod or “finger of god” aspect with the USA Mars.

This will be an important turning point in our world, related to what has been shifting during this Eclipse Season.

In the greater world, a Stock Market mini crash has happened during this Eclipse Season. And though it rebounded last week, the downfall is not over.  The mania of the Bull market is seeking to be revitalized, and it will for awhile.  Then the market will descend even more than before.

Events in the Middle East have intensified also during this Eclipse Season as Russia, Iran and Syria are getting in a danger zone with Israel and the USA.  And the Palestinians are affected by these changes also.

The Korea issue has been calmed down during the Winter Olympics as North Korea and South Korea are more peaceful with one another.  But this issue is far from settled.

And right at the Solar Eclipse New Moon, 13 Russians were indicted for tampering with the USA political process.  This triggers the cultural battle in the USA, and is the beginning swat of what will become a Watergate kind of investigation into the Trump administration  and Trump himself.

Also almost right at the Solar Eclipse there were 2 strong earthquakes and a solar storm directed to the Earth, and more significantly another horrific mass killing at a high school in Florida.

We are not doing anything in this country to remedy this kind of slaughter which is happening more and more often.

And this triggers the culture war in the USA again, as those who want guns to be more regulated are fought by the culture of the NRA, which seeks no controls at all.

It is hard to believe that there are people who see no reason to limit availability of weapons, like AR-14s,  that can only be used to kill people, especially as so many innocent people are being murdered now.

So what has been triggered during this Eclipse Season is the stock market and economy; the USA culture wars; the Middle East; and the Koreas.

All of these issues will break open even more soon, especially after April 15.

And in our personal lives and soul transformations, there is much that is breaking open and needing more of a sense of direction.

The Old Chapter is no longer here anymore, it is only in the past, except maybe in our hearts and souls and minds.

We are still cleaning out and releasing, but what is so difficult for so many is that the New Chapter has not fully shown itself yet.

Many of us are in limbo, having pretty much let go of the old season of our lives, but not fully clear on where we are going next into this New Chapter.

I believe it is in part because we need some world events and maybe personal events to occur that will show us where we need to go and what we need to do next.

Are you thinking of living somewhere else? Or shifting your sense of purpose, calling or career?  Are you not knowing where to go with a relationship in your life?  Are you waking to all new ways to see your self and life?

We are in transition, in flux, and much of what helps us to feel secure does not feel so secure now.

The world looks quite crazy to many now, and it does not feel very secure.  And for many their personal lives are not feeling very secure either.

As one who lived through the revolution of the 60s/70s, this all feels familiar.  So much was changing so rapidly, and it was difficult to know who we were anymore or where we were going.

And sexual and gender roles were changing so fast too then. And now many people are even struggling with whether they are a male or female.

All this is happening as we as a human species are rapidly evolving now, questioning what we have known and what we believe in.

And with internet news sources and social media information, it is not easy to know what is fact or fiction, what is only conspiracy theory and what is really true.

And of course now pictures or film or sound can be altered to be quite different than what is real.

Our metaphoric reality pictures are foggy now, to assist us in letting go of an old paradigm and age.

We are in transition between paradigms and ages, and can no longer grip so tightly what used to be reality.

Evolution of consciousness is accelerating now, and it can be difficult sometimes to go with the changes and at the same time keep our balance and stability.

Please know this: if something is not working in your life anymore, and you keep doing the same things over and over again, and it is still not getting better; then you need to be open to doing something hugely different, outside the box you are now in.

And though it may feel safe in the box or  closet you feel protected by, you will eventually lose the spirit that makes you feel alive if you stay there too long.

This week, still in Eclipse Season, we move into Pisces time of year, as the Sun goes into Pisces Sunday February 18.

This Pisces zone is a soul based world, in touch with feelings and frequencies beyond the material world.   Pisces is sensitive and sometimes selfless, losing itself in the “world inside the world”, the “kingdom within”, or in unselfish giving, drugs or alcohol.

Meditation and the world of pure consciousness is a healthy place for Pisces to go, as is music and the world of sound.

So now in Pisces time of year, let go of any strict agenda you may have, and surrender to the Soul and Universe, trusting that you can let go of needs to always be in control.

Sometimes we stay in our minds in order to feel in control, avoiding the feelings and inner world as they are more in the mystery of life, not fully in our control.

Venus makes conjunction with Pisces ruler Neptune on Wednesday the 21st, bringing more rose colored romantic viewpoints into our lives.  Keep your feet on the ground, but also allow the colors of the love rainbow to enter your heart and soul.

What our imagination creates is often a reality that can be made real and manifest too.  Relationships that come to us from a strong heart connection with someone, may have some infatuation to it, but for some reason brings us someone meant to be in our lives.

Maybe it is not the romantic or sexual fantasy it first evokes in us that is real, but yet it is still someone who is meaningfully appearing in our lives. Maybe they are from a past life or part of our soul family, or there for a need of karmic satisfaction or release.

The next planetary marking point will be the Full Moon next week on March 1, a Full Moon in Virgo.

Remember also that all planets are direct now, and will stay that way until March 8 when Jupiter goes Retrograde.  So whether you know it or not, you are moving forward on a soul level, even if you still feel stuck in your life.

Till next week


A podcast will be broadcast soon, and then hopefully a radio show podcast sometime later.

Riding the Eclipse Waves and Astrology Forecast February 11-17.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 10, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move through the 2nd and last eclipse of Winter Eclipse Season 2018:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.

This Eclipse Season will last into March, but there are no more eclipses beyond the one this coming week.

It has already been a most eventful Eclipse Season, mostly because of the severe downfall of the Stock Market.  We have been predicting that this would happen this year and likely in this Eclipse Season:

This will be the first blow to the stock market this year, and the beginning of the transformation of the USA and world economy.   The economy is part of the Military/Economic Complex that will be greatly transformed over the next few years as we transition into the Age of Aquarius.

As we move through the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius this Eclipse Season, the stock market will remain a huge concern.  Keep in mind that there will still be attempts to go back to the Bull Market mania, but those attempts will be short-lived.  We may ultimately be looking at something resembling the 1929 crash that brought on the financial challenges of the 1930s.

With Impeachment calls also getting louder this Eclipse Season, and counter attacks rising out of the FBI memo; we can expect the culture wars to exacerbate more and more.

There is not much connection between our political parties anymore, and this is reflective of the conflict going on between two very polarized cultures in the USA.

The Charlottesville uprising during last summer’s Eclipse Season was the first obvious sign of civil war since the Trump election.

Now as economic challenges intensify and impeachment cries get louder, civil war intensifies in the USA.

The Trump presidency will be in more and more trouble.  And so we need to be awake to the possibility of distraction created with war:  “Wag the Dog”  diversions in North Korea and Syria would be more likely.

Trump has his natal Mars triggered by the Aquarius Solar Eclipse this week just as it was at the Solar Eclipse in Leo last summer.  Does that mean he will be fighting for his political life with cries for his removal as President, and/or that he will be instigating conflicts as he did with North Korea last summer?

Know for sure that his natal Mars in Leo will be touched off in some big way. Already he is said to be calling for a huge military parade in D.C. to show off USA might.

Israel and Netanyahu are again having their natal Mars affected too by this Solar Eclipse.  War clouds will be forming over Israel, Lebanon, and Syria.  And Iran and North Korea are in the cross-hairs of the USA military. If they do not bow to demands they will be severely attacked one way or another.

And this Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius will be on Thursday February 15 at 4:05 PM EST.  It will be closely conjunct the USA natal Moon in Aquarius from its birth on July 4 1776. The Chinese Year of the Dog also begins after this Solar Eclipse.

Group creation, gatherings, group missions, and activism are aligned with this Solar Eclipse.  People connecting with the USA Moon in Aquarius values of free speech, democracy, equality, and diversity are the most positive outcomes, but for all not just Americans.

Social consciousness is being raised at the Aquarius Solar Eclipse New Moon, but one person’s social conscience may be totally different from another’s social conscience.

For instance you may feel having an abortion is a woman’s right and no one should be pontificating to her about what she should do with her own body and pregnancy. To another person killing a fetus is murder and that is their social conscience.

I have noticed during this Eclipse Season that people are being “taken to the edge” so they can be made aware that something needs to change.

Often we are able to just go along with how things have been for a long time, coasting in same-old, same-old habits that have become “comfortable”.

But now we are being taken off balance in order to address deep seated problems inside ourselves, in our health, in our jobs, in our relationships.

We can no longer “push under the rug” issues that we do no want to deal with.  It is time to act and make changes.

In many of these cases we are being pushed further forward into a New Chapter of our lives, and any blockages to that passage forward will give resistance to the process.

That resistance needs to be looked at and worked with, just as a blockage in one’s body and chakra system needs help to be released and transformed.

For some this Eclipse Season will be more graceful as they are ready for the changes.  Their challenge will be more about adjusting to the changes.

Many are in transition from their old normal toward a new normal in the New Chapter.  But for now they are in limbo, as the old normal is gone and the new normal has not been fully manifested yet.

That is not an easy place to be in.  It takes patience and faith to be able to sit in that space without too much stress.  You may want to push the river of the Universe to go faster. That will not work.  Or you may get overwhelmed with fear, depression, anxiety, or panic.   That will be relieved if you believe more strongly that all is happening for a reason and will turn out OK.

So now during this week of the Solar Eclipse, energies intensify and may feel as if they will erupt.

You are being taken off balance so you can be “on your toes” for change.

Most affected by this Solar Eclipse are Aquarians, especially those born February 10-18.  Leos also are more affected, especially those born August 15-23.

Scorpio and Taurus also affected, especially those born in the late degrees of those signs.

And of course all those born with other planets in those signs and degrees will also be affected.

Those who were most affected during last summer’s Solar Eclipse in Leo will be aligned for this eclipse also.

Please do not see this as negative or painful as most people affected will not feel that.

Many will feel liberated, awakened, and more open to the winds of change. They are seeing more truths and feeling more love. And those working through the blocks will also soon feel those same things.

Look at the winds of change bringing events into our world, events that are needed to transform our world more in line with the Age of Aquarius.  There are clues everywhere during Eclipse Season to what is coming our way soon.

It is more important than ever not to let fear overtake you now.  Do whatever it takes to be centered and grounded, yet still open and awake.

We were all born so we can be alive during this huge changing of Ages.  We have been here before and are needed again to honor Love and Truth during these tumultuous times.

Till next week,

A podcast will be broadcast soon, and then hopefully a radio show podcast sometime later.

Navigating Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast February 4-10.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are smack dab in the middle of Winter Eclipse Season 2018.  Last week was the Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo.  The week after this one, on February 15, is the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.

We are always taken out of the same-old, same-old patterns of thought, emotions, or behavior patterns during Eclipse Seasons, and this one is no different.

As we are taken out of our normal patterns, we are on our toes and ready to meet the challenges and changes.

In the greater world the stock market downfall began last week.   This will continue.  Now it is possible and even likely that there will be gasps of manic energy reviving the stock climb, but it will be short lived as the overall direction is downward now, as we have stated before.

Before the end of the year, the value of stocks will be much less and the true condition of the economy will be more evident.  This is the beginning of the transformation of the Military/Economic Complex that runs the USA and much of the world.

This transformation will accelerate from 2018-2022, as at the same time the Age of Aquarius will be having its buds pushing through the branches of our world.

The Aquarius emphasis of the Eclipse Season will get even stronger as we move through the Aquarius Solar Eclipse New Moon on February 15.

That means that collective community efforts will get more powerful, and the push by Inspector Mueller to investigate the Trump administration will get more powerful too.   Notions of impeachment will become more than just notions.

The distraction of the FBI Memo will not stop the impeachment train from chugging forward.

So there are two collective efforts now, one more pushed by Democrats toward possible impeachment, and one more pushed by Republicans toward discrediting Clinton, Obama and Democrats for being in collusion with the FBI against Trump.

This is an extension of the culture wars that became more evident during the last Eclipse Season with Charlottesville.

And speaking of the connections between last eclipse season and this one, the North Korea issue is still red hot even though North and South Korea are having a peaceful get together at the Winter Olympics.

In my estimation the Trump administration is planning a hit on North Korea this year if North Korea does not promise to begin dismantling their nuclear program. And it is not likely that North Korea will do so.

And keep an eye on the Middle East this Eclipse Season also, as the Trump decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel has not felt the full vehemence against that decision yet.

The Me-Too movement, getting further mileage with the convictions against Larry Nasser for sexually abusing so many young girls, is not done yet by a long shot.

Any group missions you have now, or socially conscious groups you plan on joining forces with, will have the winds of the Universe blowing at your back for forward movement.

Sometimes during these Eclipse Seasons events happen that seem to be taking one backward and into negative places.

From a bigger picture this is necessary in the process of transformation, as more purging is needed of old attitudes, beliefs, and ways of being from the past.

One’s demons or ghosts from the past often need to be seen in the light of day in order to integrate those shadow parts of self in a more constructively holistic manner.   Demons locked in closets are ultimately much more dangerous.

But if you keep seeing your life from “glass half-full” viewpoints, you will see the synchronicities, feel the magic, and know the Universe is talking to you.

When you recognize the Universe is speaking to you with its signs, symbols, and guide posts; you will then be more able to act in accordance with the Universe, using your intentions to co-create your life.

This is why it is important to not be controlled by the programmed world paradigm.  That programming tends to keep us locked in fear, not truly able to recognize the Universe/the Gods/God/Goddess/spirit/soul/spirit guides/angels (or whatever your belief system calls it) talking to you to help you on your path.

You are never alone, though sometimes it feels one has been abandoned by the God-force.   That is when we have dark nights of the soul that make us feel so alone without meaning.

We live in a meaningful Universe, helping us to evolve and contribute to the world and human family on our sacred Earth.

If  you see through the eyes of the old paradigm, you see everything that happens as random, run by good or bad luck.  And you will hear in the background of your mind  mental tapes of “Us versus Them”, good guys versus bad guys, male against female,  dark versus light, Judeo/Christian versus Muslim, hetero versus homo,  etc.

Yes we have opposites but they are connected at a deep level and though they may butt heads sometimes, they are together as One.

Nothing can truly unglue the circle of wholeness, except us in our own minds and hearts.  The Moon stays round, the Sun shines, Earth keeps alive no matter what we think or do.

But we can self destruct and eliminate ourselves. And that happens if we hate ourselves or others.

We are complicated as humans, not good or bad, just what we are.  We can make the best of what we are and what we have been given; or we can judge and separate our selves as good or evil. That battle will destroy us as we will hate a part of ourselves that we judge as bad or good.

And do you not think it is revealing that every side thinks it is the good ones and those they oppose are the bad or evil ones. North Korea and Iran demonize us and we demonize them. Is one right and the other wrong? Or are both victims of an old paradigm that separates by demonization, and then seeks to destroy the “bad guys”.

Once Germany and Japan were the evil ones and now they are good because they are on our side now.

Lets wake up now and know we are all one, with many different faces: Equal in the eyes of the Universe- creating Diversity Within Unity. Age of Aquarius.

Till next week and the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius
