We are now pretty solidly into the Eclipse Season, even though we have not yet experienced the first eclipse yet.  It will be on August 7, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius.

We entered Eclipse Season at the Leo New Moon on July 23. It is the first of two Leo New Moons, the 2nd one a powerful Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo.

The sign Leo at its worst is big Ego,  and dominating personality.

So last week not long after the Leo New Moon we are introduced to Anthony Scaramucci, the new Communications Director of the White House; and General John Kelly, the new White House Chief of Staff.  These are dominating men for sure, with large egos.

This shows us Trump wants to get even more dominating and fascistic in his governance. They, especially Scaramucci, will be mini-me’s of Trump.

Also this last week to start up the Eclipse Season, North Korea tested a missile that is said to be able to reach New York and even Chicago.   And Iran also tested a a long range missile this last week.

And in Israel/Palestine much violence has been erupting around Temple Mount and Al Aqsa Mosque praying compound for Muslim worship. This is an especially holy place for both Israel and the Arab world and very hotly disputed for who has ownership.

From a much more positive viewpoint this past week, pointing us to the Age of Aquarius:  The UN has stated it wants to ban pesticides, which will negatively affect Monsanto; and Tesla is intending to mass produce battery operated cars at an affordable price. Also the attempt of pushing through an even worse health care plan was defeated in the Senate. I know the day is not far away when single payer health insurance will be what the USA has in place for universal health care.

As we often state, there is the old world which will now come at us in an often monstrous way in order to show us what we need to get rid of in our world; while the light of the new world comes pouring in to show us what is coming in from the Age of Aquarius.

Look at your own life that way too.  Stay present to see old ways of being in your life that need to be released.  And open up to embrace new ways that are more healthy for you, are aligned with your authenticity, and are connected to the new age we are moving into.

We are all going through this process to some extent, and now in Eclipse Season, there will be events and inner stirrings that will accelerate the process of transformation.

The events from the old world are and will continue to be events that can evoke great fear in us. We must stay connected to the bigger picture, to the Universe and to love and trust in our hearts. The focus cannot be on the fear or hatred.

Trump’s administration, from both a negative and positive standpoint, is weakening the standing of the USA in the world.  The positive part of that is that the USA is moving toward being an equal member of the world community.  President Obama was moving in that direction already.

Now this administration is taking us temporarily backwards into “America First” and dominance, not relationship with the rest of the world.

This is and will continue to cause countries like Iran and North Korea to want to flex their military muscles. This old attitude will also tend to move us toward a greater likelihood of war.

As we have said before, this month of August is a major turning point to show us what direction we are moving in with our military and economy.

And of course that military and economy are what make up the Military/Industrial Complex that dominates the USA and world.  It is what will need to break down in order for the USA and world to transform into the Age of Aquarius.

This coming week, just before the Lunar Eclipse next week, brings us Venus moving into Cancer;  Uranus changing directions to Retrograde;and Jupiter square Pluto.

Venus moves into Cancer this Monday July 31. It will stay in Cancer until August 26. While in Cancer, the planet of love and relationship seeks a nurturing kind of loving, one that is understanding, supportive, and soul connected.  If your relationships lack this quality, it will be much more evident this month.

You may not be giving others this nurturance, but even more likely you are not receiving this nurturance.

On August 2/3 Uranus stops and then goes from Direct to Retrograde.  When a planet changes directions its energy and purpose are in the spotlight of our lives.

Uranus acts contrary to the accepted and often conventional ways, it rules rebellion and revolution. Uranus also wants liberation from anything and anyone that “chains” it up.

Uranus takes us outside of any boxes of thinking we have been stuck in, helping us to think inventively about possibilities.

And of course Uranus is the “ruling” planet of Aquarius, so let it help you this week to get you out of ruts and old stuck ways. It can then help you to further your movement toward new ways, even if those new ways are not considered “normal” by society, family, or even yourself.

Surprising events in the world may also occur.  And for this Uranus movement and for Eclipse Season in general, natural calamities are more likely, like Earthquakes, Hurricanes, etc.

Jupiter square Pluto on Friday August 4 is the most intense and powerful aspect this week. It is an appetizer to the Lunar Eclipse next Monday the 7th.

It is important this month to allow yourself to let go and take the ride.  Try not to judge too much, make absolute pronouncements or decisions. Let it all play out and do your best to trust the process.

This advice will be especially pertinent with Mercury going Retrograde on August 12, in between the two eclipses.

Do your best not to fret or look down for long.  No one event or thought or emotional eruption is the end of any story, so to speak.  Let it all play out.

This is an important month for motivating us to commit ever more strongly to our own growth and evolution, to our contribution to our world in its journey into an Age of Aquarius.

There will be magic, synchronicity, and symbols from the Universe this month.  There will be shows of love you did not expect.  There will be times when you can clearly see there is a new world we are moving into.

The trick is to concentrate on those things, not focus on what will bring you more fear and worry.  It is true the old world will be showing its worst face and attempting to keep the old paradigm alive.

So it is our role to show the new world’s best face and to make sure we connect with the new paradigm being born.

Please take a look at new video I made about the coming eclipses:

Till next week,


There is a video of my talk at the Enlightenment Expo in May 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.

Liberation and Self Honoring, and Astrology Forecast for March 28-April 3

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on March 27, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Tallarico

Spring season has just begun and things are already beginning to heat up in the greater world.   After April 14 at the Aries New Moon, they will heat up even more.      As the season progresses into Jupiter and Uranus conjunct in early Aries in May, fires will be burning hotter in the world.   And as we get close to the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon Grand Cross on June 26 events should be raging hot in our world.

This past week after the spring equinox last Saturday the 20th, the Health Care bill was passed.   This set off a firestorm against those who voted for the bill.  One congresswoman from New York had a brick thrown through her window.  Another congressman had his office shot into with a bullet from a gun.    A couple of congressmen were threatened with death and called anti-semitic names.   Earlier in the month health care protesters lashed out at legislators by using hateful language against gays and African Americans.  This week Sarah Palin, on her facebook website, put crosshair gun targets over names of congressmen who voted for the health bill and spoke about RELOADING not RETREATING.

Have you ever witnessed such dangerous vitriol spewed against our public officials before?  And how about the baby killer remark yelled in Congress this week against the health bill. Or congressman Joe Wilson yelling at President Obama in his State of the Union address, “Liar”!

The atmosphere is charging up politically and could get very dangerous before too long.  Those that represent the Old World are getting more and more resistant to the changing tides bringing us more fully into an Aquarian Age.  They desperately cling to an old world of privilege for the few.

In the Middle East more fires are building there.    President Obama and much of the world are trying to build an atmosphere of fairness and trust so that peace can be found between Israel and Palestine.  Israel, lacking trust in the world around it, gets abusive with their power, and also does not want to share Jerusalem with the Arab world.     So they keep building Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem where the Palestinians want to have their Capitol in their future state.  This pushed the Arabs out of the peace process and infuriated President Obama against Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel.

Already the Middle East is hot as Iran and Israel appear to be getting ready for war against each other.  This area will get hotter as we get deeper into spring and summer 2010.

More fire energies this spring will motivate all of us to get moving forward with our lives.    Just like in the greater world, these fires can turn more lethal when there is great resistance against the changing, moving energies.

If you have decided to assert your self in a relationship, and let someone know you can no longer tolerate abusive behavior, you have furthered your process of liberation and self honoring.    You are ready for this and are motivated by the fires of change in your self and life.  But the person you are liberating your self from may very likely fight this.  That resistance causes the heat to rise, for angers to burst open.

More and more, people will rise up and fight for what they want and what they believe in.  The coming Jupiter conjnct Uranus in Aries demands this.     The other aspects, especially the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon Grand Cross in June show us the resisitance to this liberation and self honoring.

As you find your way to more self honoring, self acceptance and authenticity, you are honoring nature and the gods and the Universe.    To not honor and accept your self in your genuineness, is to not honor the Universe and nature which have created you.

As you make your transformation out of a you that gave your self away, that let people be abusive toward you, you make the world a better place.  To deny the truth of who you are, denies your real purpose, your function in the world.   As you break the chains that bind you to a false, self denying person, you begin to spread your wings and give freely to the world and people you love.

There will be much opportunity for this, this coming spring and summer, as we all enter more fully an Aquarian Age of individuality and diversity melded into a Unity consciousness and Oneness.  We are One Family here on Earth, with many different peoples, all meant to contribute to the Greater Community of Earth and Humanity.

But you cannot truly be in healthy Oneness until you find, accept, honor and love your unique and individualized Self.

This year,  and especially this spring and summer, is for liberation.   Wherever in your life you feel trapped or confined or overly limited, it is time to free your self.     Life is too short to merely do what one is “supposed” to do or obligated to do.     We have all been conditioned to just “go along with the program”.   Use the approaching planetary energies to break out.

This Week

We reach the half way point of the lunar cycle this Monday the 29th, at the Aries/Libra Full Moon at 10:25 PM EDT.   The current lunar cycle was begun on March 15. It was a New Moon in Pisces conjunct Uranus.   Some felt a real shaking up of their emotions then.  Now at the Full Moon we reach a climax or a solution.  Since this is an Aries/Libra Full Moon, issues around self honoring (Aries) versus needing to be sensitive to needs of the relationship (Libra) may come up for you.   With Jupiter and Uranus soon moving into Aries, this may be a theme for the coming weeks.  As we previously stated you may be ready to go a new level of being true to your self, and how you communicate this in your relationships will be increasingly important.

Intense and transformational Pluto will be in square to this Full Moon, so “getting to the bottom” of the issues will be important.  Discussions could be intense.  Remember the Full Moon’s influence is  3-5 days, so Saturday through Wednesday are in the wake of this lunation.

On Wednesday/Thursday emotional energies are intense as the Moon travels through Scorpio.    And on Good Friday, as acknowledged by Christians, the Moon moves into Sagittarius until Easter Sunday.    Sagittarius Moon is a good Moon for connecting with meaning and faith and inspiration.

See you next week,
