Full Moon Transformations and Astrology Forecast October 13-19

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on October 12, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week begins with a very powerful Full Moon in Libra/Aries that makes a very close square to Pluto; and Pluto is stronger than usual and is still moving relatively slow, because it went back Direct as recently as October 3.

So we experience the usual back and forth archetypal polarity between Aries and Libra, which  is also duality between Mars and Venus,  yang (Mars, Aries)  and yin (Venus, Libra), or male (Mars) and female (Venus).

And as it becomes a futile attempt for connection and balance between these opposites, Pluto then tends to blow it all up for a reboot.

And so many people this last week have had “on the edge” experiences- relationship breakups; deaths;  injury or illness with friends and pets;  job loss or job challenges; or needs to leave their homes soon.

This is Pluto’s influence on it all, an explosive energy intent on breaking down old ways, then providing space and time for new birth.

And this is just a transformational appetizer, as the big meal of transformation is December/January.  At that time we will be in Winter Eclipse Season with two eclipses, one of which connects with the not usual conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn.

Out in the mainstream world, much at times feels very dark, disconnected, and hopeless.

Leadership in USA now is inconsistent, self focused, defensive, hateful, and apparently not really concerned with doing what is right and honorable. Truth and Love do not have fertile ground for growth and many people are quite frightened.

We are coming up to the “dark before the dawn” chapter of our collective lives.

The rot of the old paradigm is getting smellier and more ugly.  We need to let it go. We need to bury it.

There is no real hope in bringing back the Obama years, or the ’60s or “80s, or to more innocent times gone by.

Bu we are quite able to enter a new and different consciousness frequency, one connected to the Age of Aquarius, Truth and Love, Diversity Within Unity.

But each of us needs to let go of our being locked up in our heads, of our needs to be in control all the time, of our fears running our lives and making our decisions.

At the same time as our mainstream world feels like it is being sucked into some black hole of ego despair,  I can feel more connections and Love all around, and much more ability to find Truth within the trickster deflections.

In the human collective there are lower and higher frequencies to be immersed into. The lower ego frequency is what much of the mainstream world revolves around.  The higher frequency of the divine God/Goddess realms is where those who are evolving can better connect with.

But ultimately it is the marriage between the two that takes us forward in our evolution. And Chiron is the bridge between the two realms.

We must feel our human feelings and hear our ego’s fears, but they cannot be in charge.  Running the show needs to be left in the loving hands of our Higher Self, our Heart and Soul, our connection to Spirit.

On Sunday the 13th at the Full Moon in Aries at 5:08 PM EDT, with Pluto exactly squaring that Moon and Jupiter exactly trining that Moon, there  are differing energies trying to connect with one another. Some wanting to fly up higher, some wanting the depths below.

Best bet is to let go of control, of our controlling minds, and surrender to the vast waters of outer space, to the Love and Truth that move through the veins of the Universe and into you and me.

Meditate, get lost in nature or music or loving connections with your soul family.

On Monday October 14 the Sun squares Pluto, which means that the prince of the dark underground Pluto wants to connect with the shining hope of the Sun in balanced Libra.

So Pluto will carry the shining Sun into the underground lair of Pluto.  One of Pluto’s faces is Kali, and she always desires to carry inflated ego heads into her inner dungeon of atonement, which is at-one-ment.

Down there on her shelves are the heads of those who were filled with hubris, like Nixon and Clinton.

She has an empty space waiting for the Donald. It will not be too much longer before he arrives, by hook or crook as they say- by impeachment or election loss.

But we must all learn our lessons through all of this. We Americans have created this.  When the highest priorities of a culture are materialistic, with such strong needs for fame and fortune, it creates Donalds as out-growths of those priorities.

So we are cleaning up and purging our old ways that are so divorced from our “better angels”.

Each of us needs purpose in our lives, each of us has a function within the larger community.  This is Age of Aquarius consciousness, a social consciousness.

Climate Change is recognized in our social consciousness, in our desires to care for the future of the human family here on Earth.

Paying attention to our material needs is important too, as it reflects our reality right now.

But it does not need to be our highest priority. Saving our world and future is our highest priority. Within that paradigm, we learn to survive and thrive on the material plane too. It is not black or white.

So we are then spiritual beings living in a material world, needing material support to hold our higher values and to help manifest those values into solid structures on Earth.

We are not instead material beings searching for spiritual support and meaning, so we can keep our more base values in control of our existence.

As we are experiencing now, all is rapidly changing- death of the old is coming in more forcibly and frequently.

So let any chains on your legs be released. It is time to break free of anything holding you back from your authenticity and from your higher values.  As you choose to move forward now, assistance will be there for you, from other planes of existence if needed.

And yes we can feel the breath of beings from somewhere else disclosing their existence on this plane of reality.

We are meeting them half way between our usual frequencies and theirs.

Stop giving the Donald so much attention and power.  Concentrate on your higher values, your function and purpose, on your heart desires.  We cannot let our demons run our minds and hearts with fear and hopelessness.

Simplicity, Humility, and Astrology Forecast for August 18-24.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week the planets combine in relatively mild ways.

In contrast, summer 2019 has been really intense, violent, with strong breezes of chaos swirling in.

For those not privy to the bigger picture, events in the world would strongly suggest coming attractions of Doom and Gloom.

For many the world events during summer 2019 have brought with them such feelings of Doom and Gloom: the Trump presidency and its seemingly destined trip through an impeachment investigation; serious stock market and economy downward plunges promising a big recession; rhetoric for war between India/Pakistan, Iran/USA, China/USA, and Russia/USA; many mass killings in the USA; culture war between the right and left looking like a potential Civil War on the way. In Portland Oregon today is a big confrontation between far right and far left groups.  Israel is on the verge of major escalation with Palestine now.

And though Trump will not admit it, the danger of conflict between North Korea and the USA has grown this summer with NK blasting out many new rocket launches.

And more than anything else, the world’s leaders show us more and more how they are immature, self serving, unfair, corrupt; and feeling they are privileged and entitled.

The Epstein story, which ended his life this past week, has shown us that too many celebrities, wealthy people, and influential people in our world are without true moral fiber or concern for the most innocent of our human family, the children.

How can one, at this time, justify keeping the old paradigm and age alive?

It is time, as the heavens show us, to let go of that old age and paradigm in our minds, hearts, and consciousness.

We, as a collective, are in decay, as was Rome during the early portion of the now passing Age of Pisces.

As we decay, we need to come back to the lofty the ideals of “we the people”, freedom of the individual, “all people are created equal”, self determination for peoples; and a belief in a Diversity that can be naturally formed into a family of Unity for all.

Love and Truth are there always for us to embrace and live by. if we so choose and commit to.

The old programming from the decaying old age, shows us we live in a dog-eat-dog world that forces us to care only for us and ours.

Sure that may look to be true at times, but it is only true because we have bought into it, made it our reality.

This passing summer has blasted into our faces the cold reality of what we have allowed, what we have enabled.

We must take responsibility for our world, and truly believe in “we the people”.

Yes the old economy is dying. Yes the old power structures in the world are crumbling. And yes we will know what to do as things unfold.

Let love reign in your heart; let truth, “the whole truth and nothing but the truth” be the leader in your consciousness.

World events will continue to pour into our world as we move beyond Summer Eclipse Season 2019.

We now know we must deal with reality and the serious issues we have been shown need to be resolved.

Impeachment, the Economy, the growing Civil War, guns and gun control, frequent mass murders, Climate Change, etc. will continue to wake us up to what we need to do to evolve into the Age of Aquarius.

This week, as previously stated, is relatively mild planetarily speaking.

Since the Full Moon in Aquarius last week, we are now in the waning half of the lunar cycle that began at the Leo New Moon on July 31, a new moon day that included Mercury going back Direct.

Last week we reached climax from that lunar cycle at the Full Moon in Aquarius.  Energies have been at their most intense surrounding the time of that Full Moon late on Thursday.

Now during the “comedown” we gather ourselves while doing some cleaning, clearing, and acceptance of current reality.

The move into Virgo energies will assist us in that process.

Mars leaves big hearted, often big ego Leo in order to enter the humble, efficient, reality facing energy of Virgo on Sunday August 18

Mars in Virgo can be very to the point direct, which can feel judgmental.  When healthy, it expresses in a way that is quite constructive and fostering of being a master in one’s endeavors  When more toxic and cynical, it expresses in ways that demean and humiliate others or more likely oneself.

You can use this Mars in Virgo to help you better discern what is wrong, what needs to be fixed, and how to fix it. What has happened this summer, and what can we do to make things better.

Mars in Virgo takes action to work and get things done.  Negative Mars in Virgo is obsessive and won’t let anxiety go.

Venus enters Virgo on the 21st. Venus in Virgo attracts people and situations in a real and grounded manner.   It prefers simplicity and being of service.  It is humble, gentle, and sometimes self effacing.

Then on August 23 the Sun begins its annual journey through Virgo.  That means it is time to go back to school; get more serious about work; fix what needs to be fixed; put everything in order; and simplify your life.

Venus conjuncts Mars in Virgo on Saturday the 24th, to show us that the yang and the yin, the male and the female, are in accordance with making a life simple, humble and gently real.

The 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle begins on Friday the 23rd as the Sun goes into Virgo that day.  That 4th quarter Moon is in Gemini, so the mind and nervous system may be in overdrive.

That means anxiety, mental obsession, and obsessiveness may seek an entry into your consciousness and mind for a few days. Keep a lid on it.  Great countermeasures are meditation and Nature and Sky watching.

The world is turning into crisis mode, but you can stay trusting the process and the big picture no matter what.  We are undoubtedly moving imminently into the Age of Aquarius.

The next few years are crisis years, years of intense transition from an old world to a new world.

Trump people wear MAGA hats expressing a desire to make America great again.

What is happening is an attempt by those people to make America what they believe it used to be.

You do know that cannot happen, don’t you?

The world of caucasian men running the world (not just this country) with the obedient women and children strapped to them in undying loyal support is in its death throes.

Minorities will be the majority in 20 years or so.  Women are getting empowered and nothing will stop that.  Globalism (bringing the world closer together) is inevitable.

Nationalism, any kind, will have a short life span.   Capitalism in its current unfair state is in the process of being transformed. More “socialism” will be added to the economic mix, no matter what.

Wars to further one’s aspirations for resources, wealth, and dominance will not last much longer.

The only concern I have is in not knowing how dark and ugly it will get during the transition.

Like a Mother giving birth, it is unknown what the process will be like on the way to the birth.  Some are easy births, some are unbelievably difficult.

We cannot control nature during its moments of crisis, like in birth and death.

But we can learn to have trust and faith in its wisdom and the higher meaning it always brings with it.

Yes, get ready for the ride to get much more bumpy soon.

But likely not this week so much.

Expanding the Viewpoint and Astrology Forecast June 4-10.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on June 3, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in such powerfully changing times now.   Though sometimes it looks bleak, please remember we are in a New Chapter of Life, a chapter which is a transition between ages.

As we have stated before,  many back in the ’60s/’70s frequently said then that “we are in the worst of times and the best of times” all at once.

If one only feels like these are horrible, terrible times; then one is not seeing a positive future, one is seeing only the worst possibilities.

And yea some will say back to me- “the difference is that now climate change efforts are being thwarted which could mean the end of our world”. Or “it looks like there will be nuclear war which will destroy us all”.

Understood- the stakes now seem higher than back in that old ’60s era.

And that is because we are now much further into the doorway between ages.

At that place between worlds, all of our demons are staring us in the face trying to shove us back into the old room of an old age and paradigm.

The power holders of the old age are desperately clinging to their privilege in that old age.  They will not die easily.  And as we let our fears disempower us, we are enabling that old behavior to prevail.

There is death upon us now, as there is birth now. This is the nature of Nature and of Transformation.

We cannot concentrate on the horrors of the death.  We must focus on the creating of the new birth.

Life is a circle, not a straight line.  The world is round not flat.  The Moon looks round to us as does the Sun.

Universe, Nature, God/Goddess is speaking to us with its round symbols:  We are not facing ultimate and final death, we are instead changing Seasons or Ages in the great circle of Ages.

And in another 2150 years we will be at the precipice of another Age, the Age of Capricorn.

We are evolving into the consciousness needed to be a part of the Age of Aquarius.  We need to concentrate our efforts on that evolution, not that so many others seem to not be evolving.

Everyone does not need to evolve now.  The mutation we are going through will need many to evolve, as is truly happening, but not even a majority will be needed.

And we may have people who have come from other star systems here to help us to evolve. And perhaps unbeknowst to you, you may be one of them.

Everyone is not necessarily part of the Earthly reincarnation wheel, but have come from other places and are new to the realities of Earthly existence.

And some may be hybrids combining people from other star systems with people from the Earth.

Noted scholar Zecharia Sitchen, who wrote many books including “The 12th Planet”, studied Sumerian writings from 5000 years ago.  From those studies he believed passionately that a Giant race from the planet Nibiru came here to Earth, became the Gods and Goddeses of our early Myths, and mated with early Earthlings to create- we humans.

Even the Bible states that: the Sons of God mated with the Daughters of the Earth.  What does that mean?

Perhaps it means that people from the heavens mated with people from the Earth.

We are changing our paradigms, which are made of old stories,  and we need to be open to new human stories other than the ones we have been programmed to believe.

Creationism versus Darwinian Evolution.  Perhaps neither theory is the ultimate reality.

Nature verus Nurture. My astrological knowledge shows me there is something else going on that is not just about our genetic structure or how we were molded by our society or family.  We are Souls first and foremost and astrology maps show us these souls and their soul journeys in this incarnation.

If we are to evolve into a New Age, we need to open our minds to new possibilities.  Look now how we are being asked to open to the idea that some people were born in the “wrong bodies” and are becoming their true self in a different sexual gender.

We have so many preconceived ideas about everything, and now need to be open to the new ideas and new ways.

But usually this process of transformation happens so slowly that we have time to digest new ways and do deep processing.

But now all seems to be happening so fast, and we are needing to accelerate our development.

Yes there are nuclear weapons all over the globe, and yes the climate is changing and some very dangerously do not recognize it.

But it is so important now to have faith in a greater movement beyond that which we totally understand.  We must have faith in life, or faith in Universe, or faith in God, or faith in Goddess, or faith in Nature and the Earth, or faith in humanity, or faith in Star People, or faith in whatever you believe is bigger than just you and me.

We have some big trials coming up this summer and autumn, and we are being tossed around now to get us ready for that transformational challenge.

This week we move through a shifting of energies: Venus moves from Aries to Taurus, and also this week there is a Full Moon in Sagittarius on the same day as Jupiter goes Direct.

Venus moves into Taurus on June 6.

Venus has been in Aries on and off since February 3.  Then it went Retrograde while still in Aries- on March 4. It dipped back into Pisces for awhile, but while Direct it moves back into Aries.

This has put relationships in the spotlight of our lives, and many realtionships have gone through some rough weather during that time. A fair amount of them have ended or faced the possibilities of ending.

But through it all, the main issue that has arisen during Venus in Aries has been the issue of the empowerment of women and the Feminine.

Now as Venus goes into Taurus, this empowerment is made more solid and more long lasting.

Venus in Taurus, which will continue till July 4, is also about being more sensuous and enjoying the pleasure of our senses; getting more comfortable with security and money issues; and making any relationship changes more solid.

The Sagittarius Full Moon is on Friday June 9 at 9:10 AM EDT.

This Full Moon has the Sun in Gemini and the Moon directly opposite in Sagittarius.

It is a full moon of potentially lively communication.  It will bring expansive energy into our consciousness and lives.

And not long after the Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 9, Jupiter (the guiding planet of Sagittarius) will be strong in our energy fields while changing from Retrograde to Direct.

Much new and arousing energy will be activated in the 3 or 4 days surrounding these events.

Anything “chained up” will want to be liberated.   Ideas and feelings will be unleashed. People will feel more free to speak their minds.

Some will be inspired, and others will want to take new adventures.  Looking at the issues in your life from a bigger more expansive picture will be supported.

Some however will “leap before they look” and jump into things that cause difficulty. Some will “raise flags” for some big agenda of theirs, push it on others, and feel that nothing can bring them down.

These June 9 planetary events may bring an important turning point in personal lives and worldly affairs.

Till next week,


There is a video 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-

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 help in the counseling process. We can use Skype if outside New England. Write me at if interested.

Moving Forward After Spring Eclipse Season 2013 and Astrology Forecast June 2-8

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on June 1, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are now in the last quarter moon phase of the lunar cycle that began on May 9.    That lunar cycle began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus.  Following that was the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius, which was the last eclipse of 3,  of the 2013 Spring Eclipse Season that began in early April.

Spring Eclipse Season 2013 effectively ends at the New Moon in Gemini on June 8 this coming week.  At the same time the Eclipse Season ends, there is a New Moon, so we begin a new cycle.

This new cycle will be quite powerful, I believe, as it will trigger events connected to the passing Eclipse Season.   What happens around this New Moon in Gemini, and lasting until the next New Moon on July 8, which is in Cancer- is important.

That is because a new chapter in our lives begins, a new chapter that results largely from what got shaken up during the passing Eclipse Season.

Many people experienced breakdowns and/or breakthroughs in their relationships, careers,  families, or mental outlooks or beliefs.   As things shifted out of the old predictable behaviors and mindsets, new ways of thinking and being have been sought and taken up in some cases.

Many are still “picking up the pieces” and/or looking over the changed landscape of their lives.  Take a look at your life and/or your attitudes now in comparison to what it was in March or early April.

For many much has shifted and changed.  There may be a new way now of seeing your self, seeing others, or seeing your life.  It may be time to make a more firm commitment to something or someone, or on the contrary a need to release and let go of that which no longer is right for you.

Whatever has been shifting and changing will be ready to break loose after this New Moon in Gemini.   Things will open up more and events that are a direct result of the shifts during this Eclipse Season will begin to show.

It will be time to move forward into this new chapter of life, and the events that manifest will show us the way forward.  That which has kept on hold will shake loose and in some cases will open Pandora’s Box of possibilities.

What is important now is to set priorities and make intention.  Then after that let the Universe show you the way, as it brings you some results from what  transpired during the Eclipse Season.

Since as this next New Moon is in Gemini, there may be a lot of new ideas and possibilities, opening up of minds, new interests, and a need to make communication a top priority.  The Gemini New Moon on June 8 also brings more activity, and with all this activity and ideas and fast moving minds and talking, there can be a tendency toward being more scattered and anxious.

So do your best to stay grounded and centered and focused on the task at hand.  In fact finding focus may be very important as we approach and go through the New Moon in Gemini, especially so because Neptune will be strongly emphasized around the New Moon.

Mystical inner directed Neptune changes directions and squares Mars the day before the New Moon, on June 7.   So some will be overwhelmed by the influx of a confusing array of possibilities. Others, who let go and surrender, may find more magic and spiritual connection at that time.

In the greater world the New Moon in Gemini is poised to begin a time period of powerful world events. These world events will be the result of what has been revealed and developing during the Eclipse Season.

We have been reminded again of just how much our climate has been changing with more and more unusual and dramatic weather events, as has been shown during the Eclipse Season with the devastating tornadoes.   Climate change is real.  You can debate how much we humans are contributing to the change, but it is obvious something big is shifting.

And there is no debate how much our corporate and government power structures are dominating our lives.  As an example Monsanto is answering to no one in regards to how their products are making our world more toxic.   Big Government also is intruding more and more into our lives and our freedoms, lying to us, covering up the truth, and making corruption a normal way of doing business.

And perhaps most dangerous of all is the mess happening in the Middle East, right now surrounding the war in Syria.  This war threatens to become a wider regional war, and even a world war.  The self serving attitudes of all concerned precludes finding true peace and resolution.   So many countries are swarming Syria, waiting for personal spoils and more power and control of the region.

Resentments are deep, desires to listen to the needs of others almost non existent.  This Middle East region, where many of the world’s major religions and civilizations began, is a reflection of the dying old world.   Religions and cultures are separate and in conflict, not seeing what connects us all, not knowing we are all members of the same Human Family on Earth.

Each out for itself, not trusting others, not truly trusting the Universe (God) as a place of connection and Unity.  Self fulfilling prophecy is playing out, greater war is on the horizon.  That toxic cell in our collective human body, so well represented in the Middle East, must be eradicated like a cancer, as new healthy cells are ready to be born.  Do your best not to invest your energy and emotion into who “wins and loses” in Syria and the Middle East. It is old attitudes and belief systems that need to be defeated and released.  If you attach you will be engulfed with those same emotions of fear, hatred and revenge.  Let it go and stay on your spiritual path.

Keep in mind that the world economy is also in need of transforming into one built with the foundation of sharing the Earth’s bounty.   Greed and dog eat dog competition are destroying so many of this world’s residents.  New ways must be found for our children and children’s children.  They will as we enter  the Age of Aquarius.

So these next two lunar cycles, which will last from June 8 to August 6, will flesh out much of what this next chapter in our personal and collective lives will be like.  We will know more clearly what direction we are moving in and what are our new priorities.

No matter how it may look at times in the greater world, there is a powerful movement toward this New Age.  Look closely at your children to see the evolution of our species. Give them structure, love, and guidance, but resist teaching them to be just like you or how you judge they should be.

Remember how your parents did that to you?  You may think it is different the way you do that to them because your values and enlightenment is superior to your parents.  Nature, the Universe is evolving consciousness with each new generation.  They have in their hearts and DNA a script that is more aligned to the future than you.

This does not mean to be permissive and overly lenient with them. They need discipline and rules and boundaries and a sense of civility and being relational.  But they do not need to be judged, dominated, and programmed.  They have much to teach us if we listen. They are the Aquarian Age, knowing in their souls of equality, Love and Truth, and Diversity in Unity.

They carry a mold of how humans can be respectful and caring of one another, honoring of individuality and authenticity.  If we do not try to make them just like us, or to fit into some family tradition or role, or to be some American robot who is fueled more by patriotism than universal connection, then they will better lead our world into the Age of Aquarius.

Power of Pluto and Astrology Forecast for September 11-17

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on September 10, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The planetary highlights this coming week are a Full Moon in Pisces on Monday the 12th and Pluto changing directions from retrograde to direct on Friday the 16th.

The Full Moon on Monday is at 5:27 AM EDT.   This Pisces Full Moon is usually a very gentle Full Moon, and with all the recent volatility, gentle is appreciated.

It is a good time now as we approach and move through this Full Moon, to surrender and allow “nature” to take its course.  It is a good time at this watery Pisces Full Moon to go with the flow more and trust life.

I understand how difficult it is when one is in crisis, or facing challenge, or engulfed in intense inner emotions, to not stress out and try so hard.

But timing is also important, and we can’t really “push the river” to move any faster than it moves naturally.  Sometimes we need to just trust that the answers will unfold in their proper time, that we will given the signs to act when it is the right time.

And most importantly, our health and well-being are dependent on our not allowing too much stress to run our lives.  And if we are always fretting or worrying or pushing and controlling, we are over stressing our minds and bodies.

Of course a Full Moon is always when the Sun is exactly opposite the Moon.   And opposite this Pisces Moon is the Sun in Virgo.  Though flowing Pisces and perfectionistic Virgo are very different energetically, what they have in common is their desire to serve.  They both want to surrender their egos, and serve something greater.  So this Full Moon is a good time to get in touch with what you want to be humbly of service to.

Virgo and Pisces also both have healing qualities: Virgo fixes and heals in the mechanical or body or physical part of life, while Pisces heals the emotions, soul and psyche.  So this Full Moon is also a good time to get in touch with what in your life needs fixing or healing..

Competing for energetic influence with the gentle Pisces Full moon this week is the intense and potentially explosive Pluto. It is slowing down this week and then changing from retrograde to direct on Friday. Whenever a planet slows down to stationary position and changes direction, its influence is greatly exaggerated.  Pluto is deeply transformational, and as the “ruling” planet of Scorpio is very powerful.  As it changes directions this week, we can expect there to be greater intensity and stronger world events.   Pluto’s influence can also bring to the surface what had been previously kepy secret.

We can see the combination of the Pisces Full Moon and the turning of Pluto in our American honoring of the tragedy of 9-11, as we acknowledge the 10 year marking point now on September 11, 2011.  The Pisces Full Moon is represented in the mourning and healing of our nation.  Pluto is represented in our fears of someone repeating the horror and explosiveness of that event as we gather that day to remember.   The Pluto change this week happens while it is in Capricorn.

Pluto left Sagittarius to enter Capricorn in 2008/09.  It will stay in Capricorn until 2024, for 15 years.

It is meaningful that we are changing ages during this time of Pluto in Capricorn.  Capricorn is about the structures and institutions that run a society.   Pluto is deeply transformational, and it ruthlessly destroys the old that has lost its soul, its principles, its passion.  From the ashes of destruction, like the phoenix, new life is born and rises.  During the time of Pluto in Capricorn, we are witnessing the destruction of the old structures in our world and culture.

The old economy is being destroyed for something more aligned with the Aquarian Age we are moving into.  The Arab Spring this year has been destroying old governments and ruling classes who have outlived their time.  Natural disasters are shifting our Earth placements.  Much more revolution and transformation is coming our way between now and 2024 when Pluto leaves Capricorn for Aquarius- the sign of our new Age.

And as I have written before, I believe the mark of the Aquarian Age beginning is in December of 2010, when Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius.

So even though many are seeeing 2011 or 2012 as the entrance into a New World and Age, I do not see it that way astrologically.

I do believe however that there is  much truth to these two years being dramatically transformational. I believe that there is much change coming before October 28, 2011, as Carl Calleman believes this is the date of changing worlds according to the Mayan Calendar.  The comet Elenin, even in its current degraded state,  is meaningful as it happens close to that October 28 date. It also signifies great change for the end of this year.  And I do believe, as do many  Mayan scholars, that December 2012 is an important marking point of radical change on Planet Earth.

But great transformational change will continue beyond these dates, especially as Uranus squares Pluto from now through 2016.

And then in the 2020 decade we will have firmly landed in an Aquarian Age.

By that time the world we inhabit now will be ancient history, so vastly different on all levels.

In future writings of Perspectives from the Sky we will envision what this world will look like and what the process will be like to get there.

This week we experience the gentle flow of a Pisces Full Moon mixed with the intensity of Pluto.  Pay close attention to what is happening in Israel and the Middle East.  This will be a most volatile region this month and for the next several months, as the Palestinians fight for statehood and the Arab Spring revolutions continue to shift allegiances in the region.  The Middle East will get increasingly more explosive now, and will be a big igniter of worldwide transformation.  Also be alert for more grave troubles with the world economy and more natural disasters as we finish off 2011.

Climate change and the changing of Ages work together.  Ages changes, and of course the Earth and its environment are a part of that change.  All the floods and earthquakes and heat waves we have recently experienced are part of what is called Climate Change.  And Climate Change is  part of the changing ages from a Pisces Age to an Aquarian Age.

See you next week.

Transformation of America and Our World, and Astrology Forecast

This last half of winter can be considered a calm before the storms of spring and summer.  Events will heat up like the weather as the winter ends.  But if you look close enough now, you will see hints of what may be coming our way.

The economy is approaching a turning point.  Right now it is not free falling into deeper trouble nor is it getting any better.  By late spring or early summer, events will show the way to more clarity about our collective economic direction.  

Astrologically, there will be a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon Grand Cross on June 26, a few days after the summer solstice ushers in a new season.  That Grand Cross will be making hard aspects to the USA natal chart Venus and Jupiter in Cancer.   Venus and Jupiter together in the USA chart signify its sense of well being.    As a result, our sense of well being will be an issue that we will collectively be addressing this spring and summer.  President Obama’s Venus in Cancer from his natal chart is also aspected by this Eclipse Grand Cross.

What will this economic turning point be like?   What direction will it be going in?  How about our country overall?

I know by the astrological aspects that there is a transformaton of our country’s systems and institutions underway and continung for several years.  Powers that Be have been putting flimsy band aids on the economy, not going to the core of the problem and transforming the structure.   The bailout and the printing of more money only temporarily stop the economic bleeding.   The national debt is enormous, the dollar is in trouble.     The economy will likely turn downward at the coming turning point, and will stay down until there is real deep change of the system.

Many senators and congressmen have been resigning from office lately as polls show Americans have little support of that branch of government.  As crazy as many Tea Party people are, they nevertheless are reflective of a growing number of people disenchanted by our American government.

Another branch of the USA government, the Supreme Court made an unbelievably horrible decision lately when it decided that corporations could spend as much money as they please on elections.  Both conservative and liberal citizens were outraged as such idiocy.

And of course George Bush severely damaged the reputation of our presidency and executive branch of government during his 8 years in offfice.  President Obama has added decency and intelligence to that branch, but he has not shown much strength of leadership or being true to the principles he campaigned on.

This last week there was an event that adds exclamation point to the dissatisfaction for our system now.   A man suicide crashed into an IRS building this week, in anger at that economic institution.

There seems to be revolutionary energy building  in America as more and more people are disenchanted with the established world and their lives.  This is part of the transformation of our country and its system and institutions that is happening and will continue to happen.

As we approach 2012 and also move more fully into an Aquarian Age, more and more great changes will occur.  This last winter has certainly alerted us to the change of our weather patterns and climate.  There were snowfalls in places like Rome, Italy and Florida and Texas USA that do not usually experience such things.  Here in Maine we have had an unbelievably mild winter so far.  What greater climate changes do we face ahead?

And in the Middle East war drums are pounding. World powers are looking to put Iran in its place and defang its growing military and nuclear abilities.   Of course all the countries, including Israel, that want to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions, all have nuclear bombs themselves.   And the Israel/Palestinian conflict, arguably the most important conflict in the world as it influences greatly the disdain of Muslim peoples for the western world and Israel, will be heating up this spring and summer.  Also importantly,  Iraq and Afghanistan still have wars going on there.

There is a power struggle for influence and oil in the Middle East and it may blow up soon into a more out of control regional conflict this spring and summer.

All this economic and military upheaval will shake up our world structures and put and end to old ways of being that are destroying our human family and Earth.  The Old Paradigm we have been operating under for over 2000 years is coming to an end. 

Old authorities can no longer be relied upon.   New ways to see our human experience here on Earth will reveal them selves.  Where did we come from?  How did our world begin?  Who are humans?  Where  did our gods and goddessses from ancient times come from?  Some of our coming revelations will be as big as our shifting consciousness from a flat world to a round world.  This blog will examine these questions as time goes on.

See you next week
