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.

Bless the World and Astrology Forecast December 24-30

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 23, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are moving through a turning point now as we have experienced the New Moon in Sagittarius, Winter Solstice conjunct Saturn and Mercury finally going Direct.

And this was an especially difficult Mercury Retrograde for many, with many people reporting difficulties with electronics and technology, as well as challenges with cars.

Did you also experience people or memories coming back into your life?  Did you feel tempted to make big decisions? Did you feel confusion or difficulty in your thinking? Were you challenged in understanding what others communicated to you, or did others have difficulty understanding you?  Did you question what you had previously decided or what directions to take in your life?

Well now clarity will begin to form, and if you wait another week or so, you can be more sure that what you are thinking or deciding is correct.

This is a challenging time to be on the Earth in America.  We have never experienced a President like Trump.  Many are very worried about the direction the USA is taking and what its future will bring.

Trump is part of the downfall of an Empire and Superpower. It is meant to fall as did the other Superpower, the Soviet Union, in the 1990’s.

This is all a clearing of an old paradigm from an old Age.  Abuse of Power is its name, and the scandals of sexual power abuse are out in the open here in the United States.

This was part of an old cultural paradigm for relationships between men and women.  This is dying too.

Speaking of abuse of power,  are you aware of what  happened at the UN this last week?

The USA and Trump declared Jerusalem to be the Capital of Israel, effectively denying the Palestinians and Islamic World of their part of Jerusalem, as previously defined by UN resolutions.

UN members last week put out a new resolution condemning Trump’s declaration and reiterating their allegiance to East Jerusalem being the Capital of the Palestinians.

Nikki Haley, diplomatic head of the USA for the UN, threatened to remember who would vote against them in this new resolution.  She made it obvious that the USA would consider holding back money from those countries.

Nevertheless, a vast majority of nations still condemned the USA declaration of Jerusalem as only the possession of Israel, with an overwhelming vote against that USA declaration.

It is so important now for each of us to distinguish between healthy empowerment and abuse of power.

Holding power over others to take what you want from them is abuse of power.  Using power to destroy others is abuse of power.

Empowering yourself in order to stand up for yourself or stand up for what you believe in is healthy power. And that is important for us to be able to move into a new paradigm and Age of Aquarius.

In using power wisely and appropriately, we are not putting ourselves above others, but we are not putting ourselves below others either.

The Diversity within Unity paradigm needs for power to be distributed amongst people or nations.  In that regard we are moving toward a Multi Polar global community of nations, without superpowers or dominating Empires.

Equality, and inalienable rights to self determination preclude any nation from demanding how another nation lives, unless that nation directly injures other nations.

Our capitalistic democracy should not be forced on any other culture or nation. And every nation has a right to defend itself, especially against a country (USA) that has more weapons of mass destruction than anyone else and is the only one to have used them, killing thousands of other humans in Japan to end World War II.

We need to treat other countries as equals, and learn to listen and have dialogue with them.   Threatening to destroy them creates an atmosphere that promises violence and destruction.  And of course they in turn will threaten to destroy us. Old Paradigm is what needs to be destroyed.

As we move closer to 2018 this coming week, we begin to take in the reality of Saturn moving into Capricorn at the Winter Solstice.

Saturn in Capricorn conjunct the Winter Solstice Sun happened last in 1644, so it is a rare occurrence.

And it is part of the signature of the winter season we have now entered. Collectively we face events this winter that will have a great influence on the direction of our world and human family.  Saturn is the hand of time, gravity,  strict rules, clear definitions, endings, commitments, and “fated” events.

And also this winter we will experience 2 eclipses: A Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on January 31, and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius on February 15.

That Solar Eclipse will be directly opposite the powerful Total Solar Eclipse from August 2017.

What was begun then will be taken to the next level this winter 2018 Eclipse Season.

This week Venus moves out of Sagittarius and conjuncts that Saturn in Capricorn on Monday Christmas Day.

We may experience in our relationships a deeper sense of reality or acceptance of what we cannot deny anymore. This could have an effect on family situations this holiday.

Also on Christmas Day the Moon will be in Pisces, a good sign to be able to feel Christ consciousness, an ability for empathy and compassion for others.

We also continue this week to be in the waxing half of the lunar cycle that began at the Sagittarius New Moon last week.

The waning last half begins on New Year’s Day January 1, at the Full Moon in Cancer, to be followed the next day by Uranus turning Direct.  We of course will talk more about that next week.

I will also do some forecasting about 2018 in next week’s blog. Then early in the new year I will put out a podcast and a video Forecast for 2018.

For those of you who resonate with the holidays, I hope they are meaningful and full of love.  And for those of you who do not, I also hope these days are meaningful and full of love.

Till next week,

Standing Up Strong and Astrology Forecast November 12-18

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 11, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move through the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began on October 19 at the New Moon in Libra.

Last quarter moon phases are times of coming down, releasing, letting go, and gathering ourselves for the next new moon, in this case on Saturday November 18 at 6:42 AM EST.

As the Moon wanes, it slowly loses its light as it comes closer and closer to that new moon in darkness.

Along with the days getting darker and colder, the mood may get darker too this week.  Staying aware of that fact can help not letting oneself to be engulfed by fear or gloominess. Feel your natural feelings, but do not allow them to dominate you.

Add also the fact that the Sun is continuing in Scorpio, and so it is natural now to feel the yin side of life, to know what is real, to feel more deeply, to appreciate the hurt people go through sometimes.

So much has changed over the last year. We are in a new reality since the presidential election last year. And much has also shifted since Eclipse Season, which was highlighted by the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo in August.

You can use this last quarter lunar cycle to get your bearings, to ground and center yourself, to allow yourself to feel whatever your feelings are naturally feeling, as long as you do not drown in them.

How has your own life changed over the last year? Have you experienced much change and transformation since then?  What more changes do you anticipate?  Do you need to speak up about something, as so many are doing now in the world.

And this need will only grow at and after the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18.

While we watch the Trump dramas and the volatility of world relations now, sometimes teetering on dangerous; we are also experiencing great transformation beyond old toxic ways.

Power abusers and sexual predators are being called out as we are all being made aware how prevalent such abuse has been and is still. And now the world will change as a result of the increased awareness and stigma of being an abuser.

We are becoming more and more able to change this world into one more aligned with the higher values of the Age of Aquarius.

And part of that change is knowing that No one is inherently better than anyone else, and deserving more privilege and selfish gain.

Age of Aquarius is about equality and diversity within unity. There is no royalty, no superior/inferior,  no privilege for being born in a certain family or culture.

And no has the right, no matter what position in life they hold, to abuse their power in order to take from others what they do not want to willingly give.

This challenging the power order and hierarchy will continue and will get more intense.

Much of the volatility in our world will soon become explosions that will eventually clear the air of arrogance, and domination over others.

In the game created in the old paradigm, there are some who have privilege and power and deserve more.  In the old paradigm in America, celebrity and wealth and privilege make one better, with more power and deserving of more than others.

Only in that kind of paradigm can someone like Trump become president. Only in that kind of paradigm can slavery and sex trafficking be reality.

Trump and people like Cosby, Weinstein, and Spacey are given this power and privilege in the old paradigm.  And they are all now staring us in our faces because the Universe is showing us in stark terms the kind of world we are in, and one we need to change.

And some of you are thinking that this is the way it has always been and will always be.  And I tell you I know a place, a dimension, a reality where that does not exist.

And that dimension with its energy and consciousness is wanting to materialize in the Age of Aquarius.

Its light is trying to pour into our consciousness, which is why each of us is challenged to break down the blockages and release old traumas and programming so this light can come in without impediment.

And we are sitting in a time when it feels painful when we are controlled more by the old world, and lighter as we awaken and heal within the new world.

And we will naturally go back and forth until we arrive on the other side of the bridge of transformation.

It is like the breakup of an old dysfunctional relationship.  There is fear of loss, deep sense of insecurity, guilt, blame,  anger, and concern that no better relationship will ever come to such a failure.  That is the pull of your old world.

But there is also a sense of hope for a better life,  a sense of liberation, and an opening of one’s heart again.

And that new life, truly a new life, is only possible if old belief systems, old programming, and old mental tapes are released and transformed at a deep level so new light, love, and truth can pour in. And with it healthier relationships.

Often times however, the process is ugly at first, explosive and filled with rage and fear.

But that is necessary sometimes as discomfort, chaos, and unsettled emotions push us to awaken to the truth and make the changes necessary.

And the system of our old Establishment will continue to be challenged more and more by world events and human rebellion.  And as it breaks down, we each need to release old beliefs and security systems in our minds in order to transform our lives and transform the culture and world into the new Paradigm and Age.

This week experience the darkening Moon and mood, then get ready for a powerful New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th. Then on the 19th Mars will make an explosive square to Pluto.

This is a turning point time period, a time to stoke up again the powers of deep transformation.

Let your self be more empowered and speak your truth.   No one can put themselves up as better than you, and tell you what to be or do.

But you enable them if you do not speak up or tell someone who can help, as silence tells abusers or bully people that they can continue their dominance and abuse.

In time the whole idea of perpetrator and victim, predator and prey within the human condition will be diminished and greatly released.  You are not a predator or victim, not a predator or prey, and that old way of believing enables bullies and sexual predators to continue to exist.

Without a victim there is no perpetrator.  So identifying with being a victim keeps you locked up and chained in an old reality.

Yes you may have been victimized but you are not a victim.

Till next week,


The webinar is next week.  Registration will save you a place. There are still some places left.  I am giving out 1 scholarship to the class. Let me know if you want one.

The Transformation Astrology Webinar will be on Saturday November 18 at 1 PM Eastern Standard USA Time. It will last until 5 or 6 PM EST. It costs $95, payable through PayPal.  We will look at our global world’s transformation, as well as our individual transformation of consciousness for the Age of Aquarius. We will look at individual participants’ natal charts and also look at some of the most transformational times of individuals’ lives.  That way we can put into meaningful astrological perspective some of the  most difficult times of your life, so everything can be seen as happening for the reason of your growth, your evolution, and your purpose this incarnation. Concentration will be on transformational planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Contact me at for more info or to register for the Webinar.

Co-creating Reality and Astrology Forecast November 5-11.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on November 4, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As I write this forecast in November 4,  we are experiencing the Taurus Full Moon.    We have 3 planets in Scorpio now, while the Moon is in Taurus with Venus and Mars in Libra.

So two very opposite energies are inhabiting our collective energy fields now.

Both Taurus and Libra are “ruled” by the planet Venus, and those signs together, yet each in a different way, represent the human needs to make things more comfortable, peaceful, receptive, graceful, and especially in Libra’s case civil.

From a very different part of the energetic spectrum, Scorpio (ruled by Pluto) represents a need to make waves, be intense and passionate, and upset anything not “real” or deeply felt.

Do you let it out or keep it in? Do you make waves or keep things safe and secure? Many are staying on that teeter-totter now, waiting for the call.

We are on the precipice of taking the leap into a vortex of transformation.

Scorpio energy waves so far have opened up previously held secrets, brought out emotions that have been suppressed, and stated truths in unvarnished ways.

But for the most part the Venusian energy waves have kept a lid on Pandora’s box of unbridled passions.

Will we experience the full ignition after the Scorpio New Moon on November 18, or will we need to wait for the next Eclipse Season January-March 2018.

Right now as we move through the Taurus Full Moon, we enter the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Venus ruled Libra New Moon. That second half of the lunar cycle wanes down now until that Scorpio New Moon on the 18th.

So then Pluto, that Scorpio ruler and guardian of the energetic underworld, erupts more fully into our consciousness and world at the Scorpio New Moon.

That which the dam has held back will be more apt to break open and break through.  Pleasantries will not be sufficient to keep passions at bay.

So it is becoming a good time to empower yourself, to be more bold, to speak truth to power, to share what you have kept in bondage inside your self, to reveal your darker feelings, and in the process to heal your deeper traumas and wounds.

Expression of that which has been hidden can be healing.  Working it out with others can be even more healing.

In our global picture, more and more secrets are being revealed of course in the Kennedy files,  in Russia-gate investigations, and of course with sexual abuse of power claims which now includes Kevin Spacey as an abuser.

This process has only just begun as Jupiter will stay in Scorpio for the next year.

Venus joins with Jupiter and the Sun in Scorpio this week, while Mercury leaves Scorpio to enter Sagittarius.

Venus in Scorpio shifts the Libra/Taurus vibe into being more provocative. and stirring up of intensity and passion.

Mercury in Sagittarius will bring more ability to see the bigger picture, to think positive, and to trust spirit. So if you have recently felt buried or trapped in your obsessions or darker feelings, you now will have more ability to rise above and see more light.

If you do positive visualizations or affirmations, you will have more of the Universe at your back now to fulfill those idealizations.

I have worked a lot with meditative visualizations in my life, as I was a director of Silva Mind Control, now the Silva Method, many years ago.

When one uses visualizations in creating one’s reality, sometimes it is challenging to find the right balance in co-creating.

How much does one impose one’s will in the process, and how much does one allow for the movement of the Universe in the process?

Each person is different in this regard. Some believe we totally create our own reality, while others believe it all fated already.  I believe it is a combination and merging of those opposites to make co-creation work.

Yes astrology has taught me that there are “weather patterns” of energy that come into our lives at certain times, yet we each do make decisions and choices that determine our fate also.

Listening to our better or worse angels is one choice, and seeing the glass of life as half empty or half full is another choice  we make.

Yes it is true that we each influence our lives by our belief systems, attitudes, and how we are vibrating energetically; but also certain events and energy patterns come into our lives outside of our individual influence.

And it is how we react to those patterns that influence what our lives will be like after the patterns leave.

And of course the process of transformation and consciousness evolution also determine our reality and future (as well as our past).

When we become more conscious and awake, we stimulate the powers of transformation to bring us beyond what we have been programmed to believe and be.

And in that process we influence and help others and our world.

So do your best to embrace our transformational challenges now.  Our human family has had many times before of challenge, hardship, difficulty, and turmoil.

We need to keep moving forward in our transformational process into the Age of Aquarius.

And yet as we move forward, we need to move back to our better values, to our honoring of the Earth and Universe,  and to Love and Truth which are the foundation of our human experience now and always.

Without them we are lost, afraid, and alone.

Till next week

Secrets Revealed and Astrology Forecast October 22-28

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on October 21, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week October 22/23 the Sun moves into Scorpio, joining previously entered Jupiter in Scorpio.  They will be exactly conjunct one another on Thursday October 26.

That is the date we told you about last week, when the files concerning President Kennedy’s assassination are scheduled for release.  Trump this week stated that he will allow those files to be released, as he is the only one, as the USA President right now, who could stop the scheduled release.

True to the sign Scorpio, secrets are kept and kept for sometimes a long time, then eventually released in a powerful manner.  And usually when these secrets are released there is intense emotional turmoil and expression.

In this case it seems there will be much released we have not known.  And besides this Kennedy info, there is so much in our world and government that we are kept in the dark about.

The powers that be always tell “we the people” that for security reasons secrets must be kept from us.

Disclosure of information about UFO’s and extraterrestrials is also kept from us,  because “we the people” cannot be trusted with such info?

This is so against the principles of a free society which requires freedom of information.

We are not the children of the authorities, we are the citizens of this supposedly free society.

How about you and your life?  Do you hold secrets that you feel need to be expressed soon?  Are there people in your life that are holding back secrets from you?

When Jupiter makes exact conjunction with the Sun in Scorpio this Thursday the 26th, North Korea will be at another big turning point.

That Jupiter conjunct the Sun in Scorpio will be exactly conjunct North Korea’s Mars in Scorpio from its natal chart of September 8 1948, its modern founding date.

This week is a big crossroads time for North Korea, and hence for the USA. If it fires another ICBM or tests another nuclear device, it will seriously motivate Trump to act.

Hopefully he will act by making more advances toward diplomacy but that is not likely.

The Harvey Weinstein story of severely abusive behavior toward women has come out of the closet since Jupiter entered Scorpio.

In his natal chart he has Mars in Scorpio, and Pluto (the ruler of Scorpio) makes a hard square to that Mars.

That combination is male energy that is dominating, with great needs of power, and tends to ruthlessness.  Of course in a more evolved soul the power of that placement is not “power over” but instead power shared.  But with that combination of Mars in Scorpio with Pluto, one would need to be very conscious for it not to turn into serious power struggles or abuse of power.

So at this time of year now, be aware of power dynamics in your relationships, and be aware of your own or others’ abuse of power.

To run counter to the more primal energy of Scorpio,  Mars joins Venus in very civilized Libra this weekend of October 21/22.

Libra is balanced and seeks peace, at all costs sometimes.  So it will be interesting now how that all shakes out in our lives.

Do you express and assert your deeper truth (Scorpio), or do you give higher priority to keeping the peace (Libra)?

Can you do both at the same time?  Yes, if you can state your truth and be in your power in a way that someone else can “hear” and understand.  Putting a velvet glove on your fist, so to speak, can help others to see you in a more empathic way.

Have you all noticed how much the world is changing now, especially since the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo?

We have been thrust into a New Chapter of our lives, and we are trying on a New Normal as we cannot go back to what used to be considered normal.

With all the Scorpio energies beginning to come up, and more to come, we are starting to transition through the part of the New Chapter when we must make things real at a deep level in our souls.

We are beginning to climb off of the Libra fence of nicety and/or indecision.  It is time to allow for the energies of Transformation to push us out of the nest of safety, and into the passion of this New Chapter of our lives.

Of course you can bury your head in the sand of life and wait for the “storms” to pass, but being not conscious during this time will only injure the vitality or your soul.

Can you stay conscious and still not be swallowed up by disabling fear and rage? If you can that is good, but if not perhaps it is best to bury your head in that sand.

The world’s dramas now can help us to transform and evolve if we can be motivated to stand up for what we believe, in our empowerment.

Next Eclipse Season in January/February the People will speak with their principles leading the way.

The second eclipse that season will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.  That eclipse will be closely conjunct with the USA natal Moon in Aquarius at around 27 degrees of Aquarius.

Those inner principles of power to the people, social consciousness, equality, liberty, and Diversity within Unity are meant to then be expressed in a big way.

This eclipse will oppose Trump’s Ascendant and Mars in Leo, opposite also where the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo was last August.

Trump’s desires to be dominant over Congress and the people will be severely challenged then, perhaps with protests and/or impeachment.

Do you not find it interesting that a Plutocracy, with the obvious root word of Pluto; is about dominating governance by the minority of the wealthiest people in a country?

Is that not what is developing under the Trump administration.  Many people I know would tell me that has been happening for decades.  But if so, now is the time it is flexing its muscles and will be soon opposed by the will of the people with their Aquarian principles.

And of course those Aquarian principles will get stronger and stronger as we move into the Age of Aquarius, which no one can stop, no matter how it may seem sometimes.

Till next week,


The Transformation Astrology Webinar will be on Saturday November 18 at 1 PM Eastern Standard USA Time. It will last until 5 or 6 PM EST. It costs $95, payable through PayPal.  We will look at our global world’s transformation, as well as our individual transformation of consciousness for the Age of Aquarius. We will look at individual participants’ natal charts and also look at some of the most transformational times of individuals’ soul journeys.  That way we can put into meaningful astrological perspective some of the  most difficult times of your life, so everything can be seen as happening for the reason of your growth, your evolution, and your purpose this incarnation. Concentration will be on transformational planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Contact me at for more info or to register for the Webinar.

The long awaited Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo happens this week Monday August 21. Though this eclipse represents an extremely important passage for our human family, I wish people had not turned it into another Super Bowl type event.

This Eclipse opens a portal into a big New Chapter of life on Planet Earth, a New Chapter that will take us through an important part of our transition into the Age of Aquarius.

Quite obviously this New Chapter brings with it much turmoil and challenge, to put it lightly; but this New Chapter will also bring many great awakenings, heart openings, a greater sense of connection and meaning, and new vistas of truth beyond what we have been programmed to believe about ourselves and our world.

So it would be good at the time of the eclipse to meditate and pray, to visualize what this new world will be like both collectively and individually.

All new moons are good times to pray, meditate and visualize; but this one being a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon gives this new moon a far greater authority to shape the world we will live in.

Of course some things are already in place and are meant to be, but much else is open to the co-creation from our human family.

We are definitely in for some turmoil, chaos, and darkness, but the intensity and length I believe can be changed with our intentions, actions, and level of evolving.

Out in the world leading up to this Total Eclipse, there were a few intense conflicts and potential wars that have been playing out.

There is a culture war that was triggered into greater force in Charlottesville, and is continuing in Boston and other places now.

There has been an increase this past week in Islamic State terror attacks: 2 in Spain; 1 in Finland, and 1 in Russia.

And of course North Korea has been burning with talk of war, though this last week rageful talk lessened appreciably.

But on the date of the eclipse, by no mere random coincidence, the USA and South Korea will be active in practicing war games together. North Korea wants those games to be cancelled as it sees them as threatening actions right near its border. And it expects the USA and South Korea to reciprocate the gesture of North Korea not sending promised missiles toward Guam.

This is a big turning point on Monday at the eclipse. If the USA and South Korea go through with their war games, North Korea will likely send some powerful message in return. And then we are back where we were a couple weeks ago and probably even much worse.

The culture wars’ recent rise in emotional temperature, while we are experiencing a most chaotic, unstable, and unpredictable Trump presidential administration, shows us a splitting of America, not dissimilar to the Civil War.

And Islamic State is getting more geared up for western attacks now, as it loses more and more of its territory in Syria and Iraq.

America and the Western World are facing a huge bout of dissolution during our journey into an Age of Aquarius.

The Aquarian values of America’s Bill of Rights are being threatened by recent events. America has it natal moon (its inner values) in Aquarius.

What happened in Charlottesville is showing us the needed transformation of those Aquarian values. “All Men are Created Equal…” needs an update and transformation.

How about Women, how about men and women who are not just white northern Europeans, which were the vast majority of those who populated the colonies here in America when the Constitution and Bill of Rights were written?

How about other countries and cultures all around the world? How about those who have alternative sexual orientations?

All People are Created equal.

So America is in the process of a transformation of its values, its Aquarian values, both from the inside and from the outside of its borders.

And when Rome lost its way it decayed on the inside, and was threatened by those outside its borders.

Now we have an opportunity to evolve into an equal member of this world, beyond Empire and Superpower status.

So inside ourselves we are letting go of notions of intrinsic superiority or inferiority; of some deserving more than others; of believing life is a battle for survival over others; and that our souls belong to and are beholden to a church or a nation or our employers or our families.

We are responsible for our own souls and their relationship to collective Soul, collective Spirit, and the Universe.

Allow yourself to feel this powerful Eclipse turning point for our consciousness and lives here on Earth.

Trust the Universe and its greater plan of a changing of ages.

Be open and ready for greater knowledge of our human truths and human heritage.   Allow your heart and mind to be open to extraterrestrial origins and potential extraterrestrial visitation. It is coming.

Open your mind and heart to experiencing new frequencies and dimensions, new ways to view our human experience.

Have faith all is happening aligned with Divine and Earthly wisdom, as we move into a New Age of Aquarius.

This Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo will be at 2:30 PM EDT.  It will have Uranus, the planet of great awakenings, in close trine to that Eclipse.  Uranus will add greater energy to the Eclipse and desires to break away and break free.

Also this week Saturn is slowing down as it is about to go Retrograde this coming Thursday August 24.

As it changes direction from Retrograde to Direct movement, its energy of contraction and gravity fills our psychic air space.

Going Direct, Saturn gives a sense of Time starting up again, of predestination, of “meant to be”,  of responsibility, of doing what needs to be done.

This Saturn shifts directions at 21+ degrees of Sagittarius– almost exactly opposite the USA natal Mars in Gemini, almost exactly conjunct Trump’s Moon in Sagittarius and opposite his Sun in Gemini, which tellingly is conjunct the USA natal Mars.

And Trump’s natal Ascendant and Mars are closely conjunct the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon at 28+ degrees of Leo.  This Eclipse is also opposite the aforementioned USA Moon in Aquarius.

So Donald Trump and the USA are very connected to this Eclipse.  Will we get in a war with North Korea?   Will Trump get impeached?  Will the culture wars turn into a Civil War again?

Or will the Eclipse turning point show us the way to peace with North Korea, and a turning down of the temperature of the culture wars?

The turning point moment is the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 21at 2:30 PM.

Remember that Mercury is still Retrograde then, so do not jump to any conclusions or try to force your mind into finding quick solution.   Linear thinking is not at its best now.

Time “starts up again” with Saturn Direct on August 24.

Mercury goes back Direct on September 5.  

This Eclipse season ends at the New Moon in Virgo on September 19/20, close to the Autumn Equinox on September 22.

important World events can happen anytime during that time frame of August 21-September 20.   And yet many other world events with reference to Eclipse Season will happen after Eclipse Season ends on September 20, including great economic challenges, which we will talk about later.

In your personal life, be prepared for both world and personal changes that will transform your consciousness and transform your life.

You will need to leave your comfort zones and open to the new energies wanting to pour through this Portal into a New Chapter of our lives.

It is natural now to feel out of balance and not knowing where things are headed. Therefore trust is important now, trust we live in a meaningful and loving Universe, even when things are really difficult.

This ride can bring great joy and fun too, if you can let go of your need to control from your fears.  Please do not buy into the dramas now that can evoke great fear and hatred of those who are different than you like Trumpites.

Life and evolution are moving beyond these dinosaurs who are moving toward a last hurrah on their way to the dustbin of history.  They do not have control of our future.  We can only hope that we are not taken through too much darkness and suffering on our way to the Age of Aquarius.

You can help if you do not get consumed by great fear or hatred.  Those traits perpetuate the old ways, as do beliefs that the abusively powerful, greedy, mean spirited, hateful, bigoted, self serving people of the world inherit the Earth.

If you believe they will continue to dominate our world, you ought to question your deeper values, and question what you believe about humanity and the Universe.

Take care,


Please take a look at the new video I made about the coming eclipses: There will be a follow up video within the next couple of weeks

Till next week,


Please take a look at the video David Lonebear Sanipass and I created a few months ago-

If you need any help with your relationship now, I have done couples’ counseling for many years. Do you need to identify and work out old patterns? Do you need to decide whether to stay or go?  I use the astrological model to compare charts to help in the counseling process. We can use Skype if outside New England. Write me at if interested.

Goddess Be and Astrology Forecast June 18-24.

Shifting tides this week, as we leave the fast paced mentally active Gemini energies for the more contained energies of nurturance in Cancer.

On Tuesday/Wednesday the 20th/21st there is the important yearly transition from spring to summer at the Summer Solstice.  This event happens overnight on June 21 at 12:24 AM EDT.   On Friday June 23 at 10:31 PM EDT, the Cancer theme continues when the Moon meets the Sun for a New Moon in Cancer.

At the Summer Solstice, Light minutes of the day are at their greatest in relation to Dark minutes of the day.  But starting then, dark minutes begin to grow while light minutes begin to wane. Then at Autumn Equinox light and dark are equal, just as they are at Spring Equinox.

Summer Solstice is symbolically similar to high noon of a day.  Winter Solstice is like midnight time of day.    Spring Equinox is like dawn and Autumn Equinox is like sunset.

So now the Sun is at its zenith in the northern hemisphere, as heat has been growing as well as light.

Usually at this time of year events in the world have heated up also, and this year should not be any different.

And in August, with two major eclipses, including most importantly a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 21, which will travel across the USA, issues and events will then be on fire.

So for now feel the shift to summer, and to the Sun going into Cancer, which it does every year at Summer Solstice.

The sign Cancer feels right when following what feels natural at the time, and following where one’s feelings take one.

At Cancer time of year Nature is at its most abundant, and there can be a strong feeling of being taken care of by Mother Nature.

And Cancer is an archetype of Mother, whether that be personal Mother or a more Universal Mother Goddess. The Moon is the ruling “planet” of Cancer.

With the Cancer Mother, one wants to feel safe and sound, nurtured and cared for, seen and appreciated.

So many people did not get that experience from their personal Mother or Father (who can also represent that Cancer nurturer archetype).

Ou world has gotten so far away from what is natural and right, and from what the Feminine truly represents, which is why finding true Motherly care can be so difficult.

Certainly in the USA, the programming is to accomplish and be successful out in the world, often at the expense of the inner world and inner values.  One is expected to Do, not just Be, which is what the sign Cancer represents.

When the Mother is taking care of a baby, she is loving it for just who it is, for just being itself.  This is Cancer love, as is making this baby feel safe, nurtured and nourished.

To love someone unconditionally is Cancer at its best.  To hover over, to not respect others’ boundaries, and to emote without control, is Cancer at its worst.

Cancer can also tend toward permisssiveness, in contrast to its opposite sign Capricorn, which tends toward strictness and firm rules.

So now at Cancer time of year, at the Summer Solstice and New Moon in Cancer, we  will be most aligned if we can just Be; if we can do things that nurture us; if we can allow ourselves to follow our instincts and feelings more than our minds.

Cancer also represents family, both our birth family and the grown up family we develop when we have children.

Many people are disappointed with blood family from their childhood, and do not feel appreciated by that family as they grow up.

So instead more and more people are seeking a sense of family from friends and from those who one feels seen by and appreciated.  One seeks family of those who are “birds of a feather” with them.

The Age of Aquarius brings us more and more connections that are beyond the traditional sense of family. This includes gay and lesbian families, or families with Trans members, or families with children who were conceived in ways other than male and female intercourse. Cloning and stem cell research is also very Aquarius.

These trends certainly will never preclude male and female mating prevailing, which has always been nature’s choice for all its creatures.

So in this New Age, the experience of family is transforming, and Cancer’s best application is knowing we are all family, all humans together in One great big, though often dysfunctional family.

This lunar cycle begun at the Cancer New Moon on June 23 is the last lunar cycle before Eclipse Season begins. Eclipse Season begins to blow in at the Leo New Moon on July 23, to be followed by a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on August 7 and a Total Solar Eclipse New Moon on August 21.

So now at the New Moon in Cancer this week, it is time to get started, as at all New Moons.

It is best to get started on bringing things together, finding nurturing circumstances and people, and allowing your self to be loved and taken care of- by yourself and others. And of course it is a great time to nurture and care for others, especially  those who are vulnerable.

The Goddess is at her strongest at Cancer time of year.  It is now best to trust the Feminine forces of the Earth and Universe. Also trust your feelings, yet also trust your strength and Mother Bear protectiveness when those you love are hurting.

In the greater world Cancer time of year unfortunately often translates into a toxic family/tribal consciousness.

It becomes my family or nation or culture or religion against yours.  Do not get sucked in to the fear and hatred that comes with this Hatfield/McCoy conflictual attitude.

My way is not better or worse than anyone else’s way- no matter how it appears.   Each culture has its own ways that are right for them.  We need to find and feed the places of connection between us.

There is great danger now of  the growing splits and separations to tear us all apart and create even more inequities, abuses, and conflicts.

We are at the same time moving closer together, toward greater connection and love, more meaning and synchronicity.  We are moving into a Diversity within Unity Age of Aquarius.

Both worlds are happening simultaneously.

We can no longer straddle the fence.  It is time to choose a direction. Choose before the Eclipses in August. Begin to arrange your life in accordance with that choice.

Till next week,


We will do a video in July for the important August Total Solar Eclipse.

There is a video now of my recent talk at the Enlightenment Expo that my friend Jonne Trees has recorded:

The subject is about navigating the planetary changes this year.

Please take a look at the video David Lonebear Sanipass and I created recently-
