Clearing the Way for a Powerful Spring Season and Astrology Forecast March 23-29.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on March 22, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Sunday March 23 brings us a last quarter Moon in Capricorn.   This last quarter Moon will lead to a New Moon in Aries on March 30, a New Moon that will inaugurate Spring Eclipse Season 2014.  And this Spring Eclipse Season will be more powerful than usual as it will have 2 eclipses and also include a Cardinal Grand Cross.   I just put out a new Youtube video to put in larger context the significance of these spring planetary configurations.

This coming week during the last quarter Moon in Capricorn, it is time to wipe away any winter slumber from your eyes so you can be more fully ready to embrace new life energies.

Spring is always a time to come alive along with nature.  In early Aries time, as it is now, much of nature is stirring beneath the surface, getting ready to push its life buds outward into the world.

The Aries New Moon on March 30 initiates a lunar cycle that brings those promising buds of renewal and hope out into the open.  And this year 2014 will follow suit and bring us that same new life as always.   But this spring the force of new life will ignite fires of change beyond what is usual.

It is almost as if this past winter of our discontent has been building inside a desire to burst forth this spring with greater than usual power.

As the snows melt and life is renewed, all that has been held in abeyance will erupt in more powerful ways than usual.

So use this next week before the beginning of Spring Eclipse Season 2014 to complete and resolve what is still being left hanging in your mind and life.  Fix what needs to be fixed and prepare your life’s ground for renewal.

If you have been putting off making the changes that will make your life healthier and happier, make plans now for how you will make those changes.

Use the stirrings of new life inside you to your benefit.   Do not let your mind and emotions bring you into negative spaces now.  The tide has turned to seeing life with new eyes, eyes that can see new life ahead.

The powerful waves of change that the eclipses and Grand Cross represent are meant to motivate you to take on new challenges and push your life forward.

You will be able to ride the waves of change and bring your self up to a higher level of operation.   What is coming to our world and individual lives is meant to assist us to evolve and grow.

Old ways of thinking and feeling that tear you down and disempower you are ready to be shed. Old ways of thinking and feeling that blame you or someone else for what has happened in the past are ready to be let go.

Your life is meaningful. Everything from your past, whether it felt good or bad, is a stepping stone for your evolution.

There is a new Aquarian Age birthing, and all of us are getting ready now for a spike of growth this spring, a spike that is reflected in the powerful planetary movements.

If you have been holding onto dying embers from the past, they are ready to go.  Regrets are a waste of time. Blame avoids seeing life in a meaningful context and accepting true responsibility for our life.

What is no longer “alive” in your heart is getting ready to be shed. If there are breakdowns on the way, it is merely a breakdown of an empty shell, one that no longer holds lifeblood.

As you let go of these blocks to true life in your heart and soul, you open up space for renewed life.   And then this powerful Spring Eclipse Season will bring breakthroughs and awakenings your way, new ideas and inspirations that will light your soul’s path.

The greater world is on the verge of much turmoil, breakdowns of institutions and security structures that no longer hold core soul values anymore.  Life cannot truly continue without spirit and soul. Powerful events that change life as we know will move into our world this spring and over the next 18 months or so.

Spirit and soul are what keep life alive.  We are spirit and soul, and our bodies are what we possess to hold that soul during an incarnation.   When soul dies, when our hearts become devoid of spirit, life itself has died.

Our security structures become empty vessels, and we lose our will to truly live.  We just go through the motions, waiting for the end.

This Spring Eclipse Season, with a most powerful Cardinal Grand Cross, will help each of us to come alive again.    If you fight the new life because you are afraid to live, you will cause your self pain, depression, or dis-ease.

So use this coming week, this week of the last quarter Moon before the New Moon in Aries ignites renewed life, to prepare and complete and to try on new life for size.  The fires are beginning inside.  Do you feel it or are you being distracted by the cold air of winter’s passing?

There is no stopping the train ride, soon getting faster, into an Aquarian Age.

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus and Astrology Forecast May 5-11

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 4, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Until Thursday May 9 this week , when the New Moon Solar Eclipse gets the ball rolling forward, we are moving down through a darkening moon time period.  Let your self come down into your body and soul now, nothing too elevated is recommended.

As you come down and have been coming down into your body and soul, you may experience discomfort, anxiety, difficult feelings.  The eclipses and other strong planetary aspects are shaking things up, urging us to transform and heal.   The discomfort is an urging to get out of comfort zones, as the old plateau you have been living your life on may not be quite right anymore.

Your body and soul feelings are wanting to be noticed and nurtured as things are shifting.  The body of your life, the material and physical parts of life are calling for attention.

This is because there are 4 planets in fixed earth Taurus now: the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars.  And at the New Moon Solar Eclipse this Thursday there will still be 4, as the Moon will join the Sun in Taurus, but Venus will leave Taurus to enter Gemini.

So your body, your home, your finances, your land may be issues to concentrate on now.  The practical grounded side of life is calling us more.  Yet, since there is so much shifting beneath the surface, such deep transformational change, being grounded may feel uncomfortable for some.

Extremely sensitive people may now be feeling shifts in the Earth if there are earthquakes coming soon, which may very well be the case.  They also may be feeling all the building turmoil, especially now in the Middle East and Korea.

There is a growing possibility now that the Middle East will have a huge breakdown of its current structure and power balance.    Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Iran, and other countries may soon be drawn into a big conflict.  The USA could then be motivated to engage its military strength there also.  This could all occur during Spring Eclipse Season or just after in the early summer.   It is truly a tinder box in the Middle East, and even a small match of conflict can ignite a huge fire of war. Korea is also a tinder box now.

If something does happen soon, remember that this is all part of a disintegration of the world’s paradigm and structure, as we move from an old Pisces Age to a new Age of Aquarius.

The western world and America especially are in the process of losing their dominance over world affairs.  The years of colonization have ended, and many of the countries who were controlled or dominated during those times are fighting for independence and freedom to find their own destiny without outside influence.

And each world citizen, including those of us in the western world and America, is wanting to break the chains of programming from the paradigm created by society.   We want to be free of corporate and government corruption, dominance, and dysfunction.

In an Aquarian Age we want to own and honor our true individuality, not to be what will fit into the needs of the state or corporate interests.  We want our purpose to come from the voice of our soul, the calling from the Universe, the needs of our Earth and human community.

The challenge is that we need to make a living, have a roof over our heads, and feed ourselves and our families.   That societal structure that needs to disintegrate and transform is, on a practical level, providing much of our semblance of security.  So it is easy to be tempted by fear, as the familiar world we have relied on for our stability, is in big trouble.

Our government is really dysfunctional. Our economy is presented to us through smoke and mirrors, as in reality it is being held together with scotch tapes of printed money.  We are trillions of dollars in debt, much of it owed to a thriving China.

Our military is spread thin over much of the world, getting out of two wars, but ready now to start new ones, as we continue to get involved in the business of other countries, cultures, and peoples.

In an Aquarian Age, as is aligned with the sign Aquarius, we will build a multi-polar world free of empires and superpowers.  We will build a world of equals born into a paradigm of Diversity in Unity.    As is written in the founding documents of the Moon in Aquarius United States, “all…are created equal, with certain inalienable rights, including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  And of course self determination is also a  value from those documents.  Those values come from the Universe, for all peoples, not just Americans.

Aquarius is also about power to the people, not kings and queens, or dictators, or governments, or corporations.  We are each free and responsible for our selves, our role in our human family, our Earth, and our connection and alignment with the Universe.

So as these Eclipses bring more and more disruptive energies, remember they are meant to help us to untie the knots that control our soul’s true path, not the path programmed into us.

When you begin to feel the anxiety from the shifting in our world and your personal life, remember that we live in a meaningful Universe.  As such the changes are meant to be, meant to help each of us to evolve, to move more fully into our authentic self and soul.

Each of us is safe in the arms of the Universe, and as we find alignment and centeredness, connection with source and soul, we will find our way, no matter what is changing around us.   Meditation, spiritual practices, spiritual guidance, therapy, healing, nature, inspirational people and readings are ways to keep you on your path.

Being with people or in situations that breed fear, lack of trust, cynicism, co-dependence, or attachment to rules and judgments that keep you controlled, are not good for you now.   Keep your self surrounded with people and situations that help you to stay on your path.

So this week Thursday May 9 brings in the second of three eclipses this spring, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus at 8:28 PM EDT.  What was begun or conceived last month, will want to be made real this lunar month.   It is time to manifest what you were motivated to do last month.  If something broke down recently in your life, this new lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse this Thursday will help you to move forward to new horizons.

It will help you to make real what you have been visualizing or intending.  Remember the winds of change are strong, so know the Universe is supporting your efforts, especially so if your heart is leading you and your mind has agreed too.    Let your heart lead, but make sure you are covering the practical concerns too.

One more eclipse will follow on May 25, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon again, as there was on April 25. This time the Lunar Eclipse will be in Gemini/Sagittarius.

See you next week,

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Scorpio and Astrology Forecast April 21-27

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on April 20, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we have been letting you know, Eclipse Season began with the New Moon in Aries on April 10, followed by Pluto going Direct on April 12.

And of course everyone knows that three days later, on April 15,  there was the bombing horror at the Boston Marathon.  That was followed by an explosion at a fertilizer company in Texas that killed and injured several more people.

The first actual eclipse, of three in a row, is this coming week Thursday April 25.  It is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Scorpio at 3:57 PM EDT.  There is continued and increasing intensity coming our way over the next several weeks.  In the bigger picture we are in a powerful transformational transition between ages, and the next 5-7 years will be filled with events and energies that are meant to wake us up to change our consciousness and lives.

It is so tempting to fall into old age and old paradigm thinking and to see the bombing at the Boston Marathon as a simple case of the good guys against the bad guy terrorists.   Many people right now will see it that simply.

They will demonize certain countries and cultures, and start or continue to hate and fear Muslims or dark swarthy peoples.

I remember in the ’60s and ’70s and even now for many people, the sight of a black man walking toward them on the street would bring grave fear to their heart.   There is a human tendency to look for enemies or bad people, and to stereotype certain groups as those enemies or bad people.

The events that are and will continue to erupt in our world are not so black and white in meaning.  On the contrary, those who are awakened or awakening view events in a much different manner.

We need to find a way to live together in tolerance, respect, and peace with all peoples on this Earth.  The reasons for “terror” are complicated.

Our society, created in an old paradigm, sets us up (programs us) to believe in certain ways.   Many who see America as part of the problem of terrorism go over the edge, in my estimation, and begin to demonize the President or America.  They believe, for instance that the American government directly caused the 9-11 tragedy by imploding the Towers themselves, and killing the American people so they could further dominate and militarize all our lives.

Talk about demonizing?  That kind of thinking is unhealthy also, as it causes us to hate our own country, and to see enemies and evil people who are separate from us good people again.

It is true when you wake up that you see how colonists invaded and destroyed native culture. You see how we took African people, turned them into slaves to make profit.

You see how we have invaded other countries for oil or resources or geo-political gain.  You see how we killed over 300,000 Japanese with nuclear weapons to end World War II.  You see how our domination of Middle Eastern peoples has brought much hatred against our country and European culture.

But to believe we are killing our own children in Newtown CT., or Boston, or in the twin towers?

Our evolution now into Aquarian Age consciousness depends on our ability to imagine a world of unity, of Diversity in Unity, of Love and Truth married as One, of an Earth and environment that are healthy again.

America is an Empire, it is true.  And Empires dominate the hearts and minds of humans.   But Empires have existed since the beginning of the Pisces Age, when Rome dominated so much of the world.

And when Rome died, it died because its values were becoming corrupt, and this created the “enemies” who invaded and ended the Roman Empire.

But Italy was created in its wake, and still exists today.  The Ottoman Empire collapsed in the Early 20th century, yet Turkey still exists today.

So we are now seeing the Empire of the USA beginning to crumble, as we have been losing the values at the heart of our country’s founding in 1776.

They are such grand values, guided by the hand of the Universe/God.   And now we see an attack on the place where so much of our country’s beginnings were: Boston.

We do not need to come together to fight the enemies in the world.  We need to come together to re-member our values, values that are God given for all humans, not just Americans:  Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness; All Peoples Are Created Equal; Liberty; Self Determination.

Our domination of other peoples and their countries has taken away the freedom all peoples’ need to determine their own fate, and to be free.

This crossroads for all humanity now is not a time for more hatred or for a feeling of military victory.  It is a time to come together as ONE HUMAN FAMILY.

The events that will still be coming our way during this Eclipse Season and beyond are to help us to wake up to the reality that we are one human family, a quite dysfunctional and violent one at times, but one that is evolving and transforming into alignment with an Aquarian Age.

If you need to find demons, look inside your own heart and soul, and see your own shadows.   That 19 year old boy who is suspected of being a bomber is also a victim, a victim of a world that teaches us to be separate and to hate.

There is increased tension coming this week, as we move into the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on April 25.  More important world events are on the way.  This Full Moon Eclipse is in Taurus/Scorpio, so potential issues to address now are about money and sex, real estate and land, emotional intensity, jealousy and envy, and secrets coming out.

In personal lives now, many have or will be experiencing more turmoil.  What is happening is that the band-aids that were put on serious problems to keep them from bleeding into bigger problems are being stripped away.

Issues that have been previously swept under the rug are being seen again. Relationships are especially vulnerable now to opening of old wounds, and to then question the health and viability of that relationship.

But any area of your life may need transformation now.   If you or someone else has kept important emotions in check, they will be ripe to open up.  If you are unhappy about any situation, events or inner promptings may open up a discussion or change of direction.

Since this is such an important time period for healing and transformation, all cards are wanting to put on the table, so to speak.  If some part of your life is not resolved or understood, circumstances may open issues up so you can subsequently find direction or deeper insight.

It is not a time, over the next several weeks, to keep an unsatisfying status quo.  It is time to untangle your life knots, to accelerate your process of growth, to commit your self to living your life more free, dedicated to love and truth.

It may be time to question your attitudes and beliefs, to question your choices, to look beneath the surface for truth.

Eclipses often bring both breakdowns and breakthroughs.  And if neither of those happen in your life during this eclipse season, then at least it is time to move faster toward what you growing into in your life.

Open your heart and mind now; and at the same time do your best to stay centered and grounded, with healthy boundaries.

See you next week,

Inaugurating Spring Eclipse Season 2013 and Astrology Forecast April 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on April 6, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The winds of change will be blowing in more strongly this week, after the New Moon in Aries Wednesday April 10 at 9:02 AM EDT.   Up to that point we will still be in the last quarter phase of the lunar cycle, a time to reflect and contemplate and get ready for new beginnings.

This New Moon in Aries will effectively be inaugurating Spring Eclipse Season 2013, as this new moon will be the last major lunation prior to the first eclipse of this spring season.   That first eclipse will be two weeks later, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Taurus/Scorpio on April 25. Then 2 more eclipses will follow:  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus on May 9, and then a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius on May 25.

So if you have not yet let go of the winter slumber in your soul, if you still cling to past hurts and wounds, it is nevertheless almost time to let go of those ghosts of the past (as much as now possible) and move forward with your life.

Aries is active, bold, and ready for a challenge.   It is not wise, with all the action and intensity of this Spring Eclipse Season, which begins with this New Moon in Aries, to sleepwalk anymore.  Let go of the emotional baggage as much as possible now, so you can be “on the edge of your seat” and ready to go.

As the New Moon is erupting in Aries, Pluto will slowing down appreciably, which puts its explosive and transformational intensity in the energetic spotlight. Pluto actually changes from Direct to Retrograde on Friday April 12.

So together, the New Moon in Aries and Pluto changing directions, gives a strong chance for conflict.   North Korea is angry, and Israel is getting ready to attack Iran.   Crisis is brewing in Korea. Crisis is also brewing in the Middle East, with Iran and Syria both being potential targets now.    Some kind of attack could very well happen around this New Moon in Aries.

And if it does not, then the next three New Moons: on May 9 (also Solar Eclipse); June 8; and July 8, are also dangerous times of potential attacks.

The USA natal Mars in May and June is being ignited by conjunction with transiting Jupiter and then Mars.   Possibilities of intensified conflicts remain high through Spring and early Summer.

Other very extraordinary world events are likely this spring and early summer also. Expect the unexpected, and be ready to adapt to the changing winds of time.

In your personal life and soul’s journey this week, with the New Moon in Aries, 5 total planets in Aries, the Pluto station, and Saturn in Scorpio inconjunct Uranus in Aries, things could begin to shake up this week.

It is best to be active and alive, and motivated.  If you have been shy and reticent, it will instead be time to assert your self, to speak your truth.   An Aries natural mantra is “I AM’.   To be true to your self and authentic being is in alignment now.   That is more important now than what people think of you or what is socially acceptable.

Of course you can see how this can cause conflict, especially so if people are used to you being always agreeable or accommodating.

This is definitely a week of opening up and being straightforward and direct.

Passions could be high by the end of the week, and it is best to stay aware of what emotions are stirring inside you, to avoid issues getting out of control.

There will be a lot of “fire” stirring in our bodies and souls this week, so staying active is good therapy.  Walking, running, swimming, and just generally being active is good now.

Life is changing now, and there can be a lot of confusion as we get taken out of our normal center.   As issues intensify this spring, remember that what is familiar to us is not necessarily what is good for us anymore.

Life is changing and we are needing to change too.   Who do you feel you need to answer to?   If you are controlled by anyone, they cannot be right for you.  These changing times are meant to help us to liberate our minds, hearts, and souls, and lead our lives as we see fit within the guidance of the Universe or God.

Of course some people can be our mentors or guides at different times in our life, but no one should be controlling you or making you do anything.  You are responsible for your own soul’s journey this lifetime, and you are setting your self up for resentment and victim consciousness if you make anyone else responsible for you, and that includes a spouse, parent, boss, or guru.

Use this Spring Eclipse Season beginning at the New Moon in Aries this week, to shed programming from society and family that keeps you stuck in limiting beliefs about your self, life, spirit, and others.

You are meant to be a free spirit, on a meaningful and sacred Soul Journey.  It is becoming more and more apparent that we cannot trust the mainstream world, its corporate rule, its governments, its media, and its institutions.  We are being forced to turn to our own truth, our own mind and heart and instinct.

We also have a relatively free internet and more and more alternative voices and choices.  More and more people are waking up and you are not alone. There are healers and guides who care and will help you to trust your own heart, mind, and soul.  So you can then find your sense of purpose, the people who are good for you, and your sacred alignment with the Universe.

We are moving together into an Aquarian Age, something that is happening quite naturally. Yet at the same time we must be proactive in its creation, believing and having faith that we are being supported in creating this new world, regardless of the fear and violence and greed that our Old World wants us to believe is Reality. It is in actuality an old paradigm on its last legs, but dangerous as it falls from its heights of hubris.

I just put out a YOUTUBE video Astrology Forecast  for Spring Eclipse Season. Check it out if you feel so moved.

Getting it Together and Astrology Forecast January 13-19

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 12, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have moved into a new lunar cycle, as there was a New Moon in Capricorn Friday January 11.  New Moon means new beginnings.   And since this new moon is in Capricorn, most will concentrate their efforts on “getting it together”.

That is because Capricorn, which is “ruled” by Saturn, wants to build, accomplish, and “get down to business”.  In order to do so, it needs to organize, and to plan; and in order to properly carry out the plan, it needs to be disciplined, to be focused, and to step by step implement the plan.   Part of its process also is an attitude of doing what you have to do, and meeting obligations.

So during Capricorn time of year, as it is now by both solar and lunar cycles, most people get more serious and grounded.  And that can help one to “get their life together”, to structure or restructure parts of their lives, to work harder.   This is not the time for most to expand and rapidly progress.   It is not a time for new adventure or impulsive actions.

It is more a time for thinking of the long haul, for making serious resolutions, for making strong commitment to things and people who are important to you.

It may be a good time, however, to think of something you would like to accomplish, something you have been putting off or procrastinating about.

If you have been thinking about writing a book, or starting a big project, or taking that trip you have desired, or getting in shape, now is a good time to make the plan and figure out how you will make the plan work.

It is also a good time, as we move through this Capricorn cycle, to put a stop to things that are unhealthy for you, to say no and create boundaries. It may also be a good time for endings, for letting die relationships or patterns or jobs that no longer serve your higher self and your desire to live an authentic life aligned with your deeper soul and the Universe.

Remember also that Saturn is sextile Pluto, and this combination will help you to see through any inflated illusions, and instead assist you in seeing “reality” and deeper truths.  And in so doing you can soberly make your plans with open eyes to what will work in the real world.

Keep in mind that “putting your house in order” now will serve you well during the rapid movement, change, and huge transformation beginning this coming spring 2013.

There will be three eclipses in a row, not the usual two, starting in April. Revolutionary Uranus square Pluto erupts into our consciousness in May, and that month also shows us two more eclipses.

In fact as early as mid March, just before Mars in Aries makes conjunction with Uranus Aries, there could be powerful change already swirling through our lives.

In the summer transformation will be simmering, and then in Autumn with two more powerful eclipses and another Uranus square Pluto, our lives will be bursting with change, much more than happened in 2012.

And the great climax of change, for those of us in the USA, will happen in spring of 2014 when there is another Eclipse season, and most importantly a Grand Cross alignment with Uranus, Pluto, Jupiter, and Mars. This Grand Cross will have the USA natal Sun in its cross-hairs, exact to the degree, 13+ degrees of Cancer.

From this spring 2013 until spring 2014, there will be a huge burst of new energy pushing against  the dams of the old world paradigm, looking to burst into our hearts, minds and lives.

Powerful world events will be flooding in, and the stubbornness of old world resistance will be severely challenged.

Our country is in grave trouble now, needing to let go of its Superpower ego image, let go of its dominance of world affairs through its Empire.  If Barack Obama is now owning his deep connection and possible reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln, then he will be ready to bring our country into a world aligned with the principles our country was founded on: liberation, equality, self determination, diversity in Unity- FOR ALL PEOPLES AND COUNTRIES.

At the least Barack Obama is somehow connected to Lincoln and will again at his inauguration, swear in as president for a second term using the Lincoln Bible.  He is the first person since Lincoln to use that Bible.  And Lincoln, Kennedy and Obama are all connected through the freeing and providing Civil Rights to the African slaves. And Obama is the fruit of those previous efforts.

And Lincoln began his presidency in 1861, Kennedy 100 years later in 1961, the same year Obama was born.

And now our country is fracturing again, as it did in the Civil War.

And now the issue of gun control versus gun owner rights will take center stage in this fracturing of our country.   Other issues that divide “red states” from “blue states” will also come to the fore this year and next.

President Obama, as he takes responsibility for his role in our human condition at this major crossroads during the transition between the Pisces and Aquarian Age, will be in harms way and in danger of suffering the same fate as Lincoln and Kennedy.

The growing Civil War in our own country, the coming chaos in the Middle East, and the restructuring of the world power structure and world economy; all of these issues will come storming in while Obama is president.

Obama, with a South Node of the Moon in Aquarius (the South Node considered symbolic of past lives), connects with Sun in Aquarius Lincoln, to find the strength to make it through this great challenge into an Aquarian Age.

Freedom, equality, and Diversity in Unity are common traits of the sign Aquarius and are connected to the Civil War of Lincoln’s time and the changing of Ages now in Obama’s time.

Pisces is about saviors and its age was begun around the time of the birth of Christ.  Aquarius moves beyond gurus and royalty and saviors and toward power to the people and the individual, in unified community.

Will we need one more Pisces Age savior martyr to usher in our Aquarian Age?  Or will we sufficiently evolve fast enough as a collective so that is not necessary?

These next 18 months or so will provide us with the answers. Autumn 2013 looks especially important, as the Eclipses fall so very close to Obama’s Saturn and Sun, with Saturn in Scorpio making square his Sun in Leo then also. This will be a most challenging time for him, and from then to spring 2014 there will be much chaotic change in America.

So for now, for January into February, put your own house in order, preserve and build your security structures, make plans for your future, and get your self and your  life grounded in “reality”.

Yes we are moving into a new Aquarian Age, but this transition will take hard work, a strong sense of responsibility and a connection with the physical plane of reality.  We can make this Aquarian Age real, not just a figment of our imaginations.

See you next week,


I will be doing a Youtube video forecast for 2013 later this week and will give you the link next Saturday the 19th of January.

Goodbye 2012 and Astrology Forecast December 29- January 5

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on December 29, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Next week we will look at 2013.  This week we say goodbye to 2012.

I am sure for some 2012 did not live up to their expectations.   Especially because of the end of the Mayan Calendar and so much hype and misinformation about that event, many people either expected apocalyptic events- or events that would sweep us into a new dimension of consciousness or a golden age.

The process of transformation is slower than that.   It is true that an old age is dying and horrible events, like what happened in Newtown Connecticut, are part of that process. And yes we are changing our consciousness to align ourselves with an Aquarian Age.

Those who believed an apocalypse was coming were in touch with the inevitable destruction of an old world, its beliefs, institutions and paradigm.  Those who believed a much better world would arrive at the end of 2012 were in touch with the fact that we are leaving an old Pisces Age and in transition to a an Aquarian Age. But we are not there yet.

We need to be more patient as there is much more healing and transformation for our world and for our personal lives on the way.

And yes the speed and intensity of change began to pick up in 2012.  And 2013 will bring a huge spike of change again, even bigger than in 2012.

The old paradigm is barely working anymore.The conditioning and programming we have received to keep us entrenched in the old ways has been breaking down, and people are more and more looking outside their old boxes of consciousness and perception in order to find new and better ways to be and live.

But the Universe is not going to drop a New Age into our laps.  Each of us needs to make the consciousness shifts, change our belief systems, and transform the way we lead our lives.    No matter what planetary alignments come our way, we each need make choices at our personal crossroads, choices that show we trust our authentic natures and trust the Universe.

If at a deep level we cannot shake the fears and negativities that the old world teaches us are true, then no matter what grand openings the Universe provides us with, we will stay stuck.

After John Kennedy was assassinated, we were at a crossroads as a nation.  We could have seen only the pit of darkness, and begin to decay as a nation.  Civil Rights for blacks had been picking up steam during Kennedy’s time as president as Martin Luther King was becoming a beacon of light.

After JFK’s death the ’60s revolution brought us to fight more fiercely for Civil Rights for blacks and women.  We began to challenge the paranoia around communism, and fought to end the Viet Nam war as a result.   We used the transformational crossroads at Kennedy’s death to bring us into a New World, one run more by love and truth and fairness.

After the tragedy of 9-11, we were at another transformational crossroads. But this time we did not choose a high road to travel on. Instead we began to be at war with Muslim peoples, invading Afghanistan, and a few years later Iraq, a country which had nothing to do with 9-11.  We began to take human rights away with Homeland Security and began torture chambers at Guantanamo.   We let fear force us into making protecting security more important than higher Universal principles.

So you can see that countries and people both make decisions and those decisions show the way to what we create.

So in your personal life, the same applies. If you face a difficult event like a divorce or loss of job for instance, it is up to you what attitude you will develop. Of course at first one may get very negative and hopeless. But hopefully, in time one looks to see why the event happened, put meaning to it, and eventually know that it is part of your sacred soul journey.

So do not look for the Universe to provide you with a better world. It is up to you and it is up to us, to use the changes to help us to better align with the frequencies of the Aquarian Age.

Some will devolve and decay, while others will hear the trumpet call of the Aquarian Age and evolve into its golden rays.

Each time there is an Eclipse Season (next one spring of 2013) or an important planetary alignment (Uranus square Pluto 2012-2015), we get our lives and/or consciousness shook up.  What comes to us is not under our control. But how we react, we do have some control over.  We have the ability to choose love and truth and the higher principles of the Aquarian Age, or we can choose to become cynical and fearful.  Our beliefs then produce the reality of our lives.

We are creating our karma, and our world and the world we live in, and the people around us will be affected by our choices.

So yes the end of the Mayan Calendar brought us to another crossroads, as we each chose the direction to move toward. Do you believe we are moving toward greater evolution, toward an Aquarian Age? Do you believe we can become a unified human family, living in Diversity in Unity? Do you believe we are in a major transformation that will help us release old destructive ways and help us to heal our relationship with the Earth and each other?

Do you believe our Universe is a meaningful one, a place of wholeness and connection of all the opposites, like light and dark and male and female, and yin and yang?

If so, then each time there is shakeup of our world and your personal world, use it to release your fears and turn more toward the light of an Aquarian Age.

There is no grand moment when everything ends or when something wonderful has totally begun. Stay present in the process, and move through this transition with as much grace as you can.

This week ahead brings us to the end of Gregorian Calendar 2012. And no one has predicted that calendar’s ending.  2012 brought us a big wave of transformation.

New Year’s Eve, if you are out and about, could be more lively and  maybe even more crazy than usual, with the Moon in Leo and Mars in Aquarius sextile Uranus.

The rest of the week should be energetically tame, with the dark cloud of Saturn/Pluto overhead. That aspect promises to speed up the downfall of institutions that are in decay.

Whichever way the Fiscal Cliff challenge turns, remember we are still looking at a shaky economy and a dysfunctional government. It is all part of the process of ending an old paradigm and age and opening the portals to an Aquarian Age.

See you next week,

Creating Our New Age and Astrology Forecast December 16-22

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on December 15, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we just passed through a New Moon in Sagittarius on December 13, Eclipse Season Autumn 2012 has ended.

This Eclipse Season began two weeks prior to the first actual eclipse, on a Full Moon October 29.  With that Full Moon came Hurricane Sandy, which was a devastating storm for the east coast USA.

The Eclipse Season ended at the Sagittarius New Moon on December 13, and the next day there was a most horrible tragedy again on the east coast USA, in Connecticut.  Strangely this tragedy occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

Full Circle was from East Coast Sandy Hurricane to East Coast Sandy Hook school.

As we wrote at the Hurricane, storms moving into the section of America where the Sun first rises every day, the east coast, symbolically shows us what is expected to be moving into our country.  The east coast is also where Europeans first built settlements in their New World colonizing.

The USA’s transformation is a large part of the transformation of our Earth human community, as we transition from a dying Pisces Age to a developing Aquarian Age.

The Pisces Age began over 2000 years ago, around the time when Christ was born into a world largely dominated by the Roman Empire.    Now as we transition into an Aquarian Age, the last Empire, the Superpower USA Empire is dying. It is dying at a time when a Christ consciousness is wanting to  open in the hearts of humanity.

That Christ consciousness knows we are all brothers and sisters in our hearts and souls. We are all in this human experience together, all in the same family, with compassion for all our members, especially those who are least understood.

It is so easy to make tragedies defined by notions of good and evil,  about bad people and good people. And of course many are doing that with the School Tragedy in Connecticut, making Adam Lanza into a devil.    But tragedies happen for reasons that are difficult to fully understand.  There is mystery to the workings of nature, but also to the greater Universe or God.  Who was the evil demon who brought death and destruction from Storm Sandy?

When nature creates the tragedy, we do not look for someone to demonize.   We accept it is as just nature’s way.  When a human is horribly involved and perpetrating the tragedy, we desperately look for quick answers so we can feel in control to fix the problem so it will not happen again.

There are no quick fixes, but we can learn some lessons from these tragedies.    This time with the horror at Sandy Hook School, we are reminded of how our children are losing their innocence, and so are we adults.

There can be nothing worse to face than the loss of our children, a parent’s worst nightmare.  And there is also loss of innocence for the surviving children and for children all over the country and world who find out about this tragedy. There was a murder at an Oregon Mall the day before also.  So can we not feel totally safe at school or a mall anymore?

Where can children feel safe now, as their innocence is robbed from them.  But our decaying American society has already been taking away that childhood innocence.  Kids are now exposed to sex and drugs and drinking even before they are teens.  And there are many permissive parents who do not see anything wrong with that.

When kids are exposed to so much, when so young, what is there to experience later?   What are they being taught to value?

Why are they brought up to believe it is Ok to live in a world that has weapons of mass destruction, and that their country the USA used them and killed over 300,000 people in Japan  in World War II?

Why is it ok to bomb countries and invade those countries and yet those countries never attacked us?  Why is it OK that our world is so dominated by buying stuff, by making money.  Why do we live in a world that gives privilege to people who make more money or have more power?

Why are we so separated by family and country and religion?  Why do we hate people who are not just like us?

What kind of values are we giving our children, and why do we deprive them of their innocence?

And this man Adam Lanza was a child too, only 20 years old. He is a product of our world.

We have entered a most intense and difficult phase of our transition between ages, as we leave the Eclipse Season and move closer to the end of the Mayan calendar.

We must each make a stand, make a strong intention and commitment to the values of a new Aquarian Age. The old age will not end on December 21, 2012. A glorious New Age will not fully begin then either.

But we can each use that moment to visualize the kind of world we see coming in the Aquarian Age.  We can commit to bringing better values to our world and to our children. Those new values will be our new world, a world of social consciousness, of equality amongst all peoples, of liberation from unjust and corrupt governments and rulers.   We can quit giving our power away to corporations, by not making money and material possessions such a high priority in our world.  We can quit making our military such an important player in our collective lives, as that gives a high priority to might.

Militaries should only be for protecting our borders and people from invasion, not policing the world and giving us advantage over others.  We can begin to make a higher priority to our understanding others better, and making relationship and peace with them.  We can teach our children they live in a world that is good, with love, truth, and fairness our highest priorities.

In the Old World , which is dying, we have decaying values, and these decaying values are what create our tragedies, natural or man made, as nature is a part of us.

When someone asks you how there can be God when such horrible situations happen like in Connecticut, let them know this:  God (the Universe) is us, as we have been created in its image.  We started with a beautiful “park”, our Earth, and we have been destroying it as well as our human family.  We have let the higher values of this Universe, like Love and Truth, become low priorities in our world.

We are responsible for our world in an Aquarian Age, yes we the people are responsible.  And as we become more and more responsible, we quit giving our power away to Governments and Corporations, to presidents and dictators and kings and queens, celebrities, and saviors.  When we take all these powers off the pedestals, where we both idolize and blame them; we then create a world we can be proud of.

This is our world, and the Universe will support our co-creation of  the Aquarian Age.  Our children and our children’s children will be the beneficiaries of what we are learning to create.

As we await the ending of the Mayan calendar at the Winter Solstice this coming Friday December 21 at 6:11 AM EST there are less minutes of light every day tell then. The Winter Solstice is the darkest day of the year, but then afterward new light is born, and there is more and more light everyday until the Summer Solstice.  At this major turning point, we turn toward the light.   On that day, which is also the end of the Mayan Calendar,  may we concentrate our energies on the enlightened values we want for all the generations to come.

See you next week,
