And the Winner Is?And Astrology Forecast February 2-8

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Eclipse Season Winter 2020 can still be seen in our rear-view mirrors.  

There is more to process through, and hopefully each of us finds the time to do so, with professional support, or close friends, or time for being alone with yourself to sort through and heal from.

The last couple of months brought up so much from deep within our minds, souls, spirits, and bodies.

They have been “brought back up” into our awareness,  because we need more clarity,  direction, insight, and release of old patterns that do not serve us or our evolution into the Age of Aquarius.

Our collective human lives are really in crisis now, as we get more and more certain that our old paradigm is failing us, as we struggle to find our way forward.

Many struggle to be present, or even to just wanting to be present.  Our phones, computers and other tech escapes have us living more and more in a virtual world bubble.

Many more young members of society awaken each morning as adults now.  And as they look out at the world we live in, they are scared to death.

Mass murders at schools, workplaces, restaurants, night clubs and other frequented places, gives many people pause when thinking about going outside their homes for any reason.

Your work needs and your friendship needs can more and more often be “satisfied” from home or on a computer.

Sex lives are also more and more virtual, with internet porn, dating site hookups,  and now human-like sex robots.

We do not even need to go out for groceries or restaurant food, which can be delivered to our door, along with everything else you want and need taken care of by Amazon.

And look at the world “out there”. Our American culture is split, as it once was at the Civil War.

Our economy is for show, not nearly as good as it is being sold to us.

And during this latest Eclipse Season, we were brought to the brink of war with Iran ( which could have triggered  a World War); The Coronavirus outbreak of illness and death started in China; the almost war with Iran that could have led to World War III; and economy and stock market on the brink of severe downturn; and a presidential impeachment process that is about power and politics more than desires for truth, justice, fairness, and community.

Of course our world is at a crisis point at a Crossroads based on bringing back our values that are connected to “our better angels” as Abraham Lincoln alerted us to.  OR NOT making those “better angel” values our highest priority.  The impeachment process showed us, when a vote came for calling witnesses and documents, how winning politically is more important than our cherished values and ideals.

We are in deep trouble, and can no longer operate from a default pattern of energies, habits, and opinions that keep us stuck in the old world, paradigm and Age that do not work for us, or help provide us with Truth, Love and care for one another and our community.

This week, as we are in the beginning of the Lunar Cycle begun at the New Moon in Aquarius on the 24th,  begin our week at Imbolc on the 2nd of February.

Imbolc has been considered a sacred day for hundreds of years, especially by those who find spiritual Oneness in Nature.

Imbolc, called Groundhog Day in our current pop culture, is the half way marker between Winter and Spring. It was considered as a Time of Initiation.

And Groundhog Day is seeing shadows that tell people if Spring is coming early in any given year.

Mercury leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces on Monday February 3, shifting our mind into more imaginative and creative thinking and communicating.

Staunch adherents of “cause and effect” logic find Mercury in Pisces quite challenging, as it is into finding connections and right brain unity more than the bottom line of left brain thinking.

This week tops off with Venus entering battler Aries on Friday the 7th.

This is Venus’ best example of being empowered, self assertive, and true to Self.

Venus in Aries is independent and self confident.  Closest Goddess to this Venus placement in Aries is Athena.

And to top off this week, we have a Full Moon in Leo on the 9th at 2:33 AM EST.

The Sun is in Aquarius opposes the Moon in Leo, which makes the Full Moon.

So Aquarius’ mind is quite different than Leo’s heart.  At this Full Moon you may get a realization that trusting mind more than heart is not the right way to believe and lead one’s life.

Leo ideally is the open heart of a 3 year old whose heart is ready to take on all experiences.  And she also appreciates all the attention she may be getting.

Aquarius knows the value of a clear mind that also possesses higher values. It operates from a web of thought patterns, similar to the Internet.

I did much study this week to be able to find who the next USA president will be.

I felt pretty sure when I predicted Obama would be the Democrat nominee and McCain the Republican nominee in 2008, then Obama the winner. I made prediction around this time of year I believe. Since I was able to predict so early in the process, using my own astro formulas, I believe those 2 were destined to win.

Then in 2016 I predicted early that Trump would be the nominee and eventual winner

This time it is not so easy, as 3 or 4 people do well in the formula.

Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden, and in a lesser way Bloomberg and Warren all meet the formula criteria. So does Trump fit the formula.

But Elizabeth Warren is also so connected to the Eclipses this year in June and November and most of all she is connected to the Jupiter conjunct Saturn aspect in December that is a symbol of the New Age of Aquarius beginning.   Her natal Jupiter is at 0 degrees 14 minutes of Aquarius.  The Jupiter/Saturn conjunction is exactly at 0 degrees 14 minutes of Aquarius

I predict Elizabeth Warren will win,  But I do so with less confidence than in previous years.

In Addition to all this potential confusion, the Universe is throwing a big curve ball on Election Day this year because it has the same crazy planetary aspect it had on Election Day November 7, 2000.

Mercury that night in 2000 was shifting from Retrograde to Direct,  and news anchors all kept going back and forth predicting Bush won, then Gore, then Bush, etc.

We did not know the winner until weeks later when the Supreme Court got involved. Bush won.

Very strangely, and perhaps most importantly, this Election Day on November 3 has the same planetary alignment as it did on Election Day in November 2000. Mercury goes from Retrograde to Direct that day.

Maybe no one will be the clear winner that night. Maybe Trump will not accept the apparent win by Biden or Bernie or Warren.  Very Good chance one of those 2 alternatives or one we cannot see yet will play out.  To be continued.

Till next week,

Leo

Powerful Change is Here Now and Astrology Forecast January 25-February 1

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on January 25, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Intensity has remained high since the first eclipse on Christmas evening .this winter season 2019/2020. That was a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn

Then around the time of the second and last eclipse on January 10, intensity rose quite powerfully.   The impeachment process was taking over much of USA collective consciousness.  And the USA and Iran nearly went to war.

Now with the Eclipse Season passing into our collective rear view window, we are faced to deal with what is left after the eclipse storms.

There is growing movement to transform and evolve, to be authentic, conscious, empathetic, in our Higher Selves or Soul Selves.

And the need for that evolution in consciousness, as we are in transition between a  Pisces and Aquarian Age Paradigm, is enormous.

People are getting more and more connected now, connected and aligned.  But the Fear script is getting pushed into our awareness.  “What if…., what if…….what if………?” Fear based consciousness keeps us wallowing in that fear; getting more obsessive in our minds and actions; and developing sterner judgments of ourselves and others.

Your Higher Self looks at the Big Picture for meaning for whatever is banging around down here on Earth.  You and I each have a place and purpose to fulfill at this important time in ourstory.

The Impeachment process is bringing out all the demons in our political system; Iran is still in the cross-hairs of Israel and the USA. They are waiting for the right time to hurt Iran badly; and                  the impeachment process is in large measure political warfare now. (though of course Trump is clueless of what our community truly needs.)  He is obsessed with winning in November in order to feed his narcissist appetite.

Somewhere along the line Pandora’s Box loses its lid, and chaotic anarchy is the result. That will bring martial law to dominate and control the people.  And now the possibility of biological sickness spreading across the Earth has gotten stronger.

We need some miracles to save us from such devastation, and that will come in the form of a new USA president elected this November.

I ‘m not saying she needs to be a savior; but she/he will need to bring guidance, direction, sanity, and remind us of our deep set values. And she will let us know she follows Truth and Love as her guiding lights.

And that we are capable of regardless of who is president.

Most of the important planetary aspects coming up are connected to the USA chart’s Pluto and Pluto Return, happening now through 2023.

That Pluto in Capricorn in the USA second house is the Military Industrial Complex that dominates our world.

And as Pluto returns to the exact same position it was in on July 4 1776; we the people need to take more responsibility for what we have done to our Earth, and what we done to one another.

That does not require self harm in order to make things better. It requires empathy and compassion for ourselves and others, as well as a commitment to our Earth home and each other.

And besides the Pluto Return, both Saturn and Jupiter will conjunct that same USA natal planet of Pluto this year.

The security of the Empire Complex will be challenged, so it can transform into what is best for “we the people”(ll over the world).

Trump is a test for us. He should help us all remember that in our country’s revolution we made vow to eliminate Kings or Queens from our lives. That also means dictators or presidents who abuse power in order to keep their power.  King George of England during the revolution needs to rest in peace now.

And through all the darkness i our world and country now, the light of a New Age burns brightly underneath the surface, waiting for enough blocks or impediments to be released, in order to make room for the light, love, and truth of the Age of Aquarius.

This week we continue on our way up the waxing moon, as it travels toward a Full Moon in Leo on the 8th of February.

Aquarius New Moon from January 24 keeps Aquarius themes alive.

So the energies of Aquarius grow stronger this week.  Use it for more inventive “outside the box” thinking; for liberating yourself  from old stuck ego stories.  Use it to feel better about being a unique individualized person, one who joins the healthy community of Age of Aquarius members. They are all around, waiting for when they are needed to show themselves.

This week on Sunday the 26th of January, Venus in Pisces squares Mars in Sagittarius, pitting male in conflict with female.  Venus in Pisces seeks  to love and be loved, unconditionally.  Mars in Sagittarius seeks higher meaning and high adventures and uplifting inspiration.

Though Pisces is flowing and gentle, while Mars is raising a a fiery flag of knowing and intuiting; they can get long quite well as they are both idealistic dreamers for a better day.

Neptune energies are stronger than usual in the beginning of the week as both Venus and Mars make aspect to Neptune.

Neptune can also be very idealistic and dreams of better days coming.

All in all this week, we move toward more hope. We also move, with the Uranus and Aquarius aspects this week,  toward “people power” with revolutionary ideas getting stronger and stronger.

We can all get more outside the boxes of ego stories that keep us stuck and miserable. Now is a time to do just that. Break away and Be your Self.

Keep ego thinking to a minimum.

You can feel now with the Aquarius New Moon, the energetic push toward a New Age of Aquarius, toward breaking up the need to have all ducks in a row with all our life in stuck security control. Liberation energies are especially strong right now, use them as you want.

Eclipse Season Continues and Astrology Forecast January 19-25

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on January 18, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have been moving through a most intense and crazy time period here on Planet Earth.

I have been experiencing, much through my clients, feelings of loneliness,  and  in a couple of instances feeling despair and not wanting to be on this planet anymore.

The last of the two eclipses for this Eclipse Season, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer on January 11, brought up old feelings and traumas. for many people. 

This time was and is, a  prime ground for burying/releasing  the past and beginning to concentrate on what you are moving forward toward now.

Some have been experiencing profound events and/or breakthroughs  in consciousness. Others feeling breakdowns of what is not right for their lives anymore

We are moving into the Age of Aquarius, and in so doing are needing to be in relationship with others.

Many people, it seems, are facing potential endings of relationships, of homes or  work.  They are feeling they must do better, as we are rapidly moving through new dimensions and frequencies. Time seems to be moving faster, and control is less easy to maintain

That means that  these changes, both in personal and public lives, are all meaningfully aligning with the various energies and forms produced during this Eclipse Season.

Out in the world, Chaos is picking up its pace; while Order is ever at the ready to impose its martial will.

The trial of Trump’s presidency is ready to be weighed through the Impeachment process. We can only hope that lawmakers in the Congress will put the country above petty party contests.  Besides the trial of the president, there is a civil  war between cultures  going on inside the USA that has potential of getting much worse.

And of course the transformational energies of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto will continue to shake up our lives to help us to release old “fecal matter”, and instead to take in what will bring us to our next level of our personal evolution. 

Iran is now enemy #1 for the USA and Israel.  They have put Iran in a strangle hold  of sanctions, after the USA previous government had signed and sealed the nuclear agreement which was apparently working.

This is not about Democrats and Republicans, per se.  It is about keeping the integrity of the original agreement, so people around the world will trust what the USA says and promises.       

Our human family is  on the edge, and bigger events are on the docket.

The economy and stock market seem to be purring along, but how can people miss the information about how every crash was preceded  by record highs just before the crash.

The economy works for the few not the many.  That must stop in order for a New Age to be embraced.  Candidates like Bernie and Warren are on board with massive change that will level the playing field so all can benefit from new economic programs.   They both want Medicare for all too.

Who will Democrats vote for in the nomination process to run against Trump?

This week, we find ourselves buried deep within the 4th and last quarter of the Lunar cycle that began at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on December 25/26.

We are winding down from all the intensity of the eclipses and Saturn/Pluto.

What has shifted in your life or in your stories and beliefs?  What is happening out in the world now? Do you approve or not.

Though still in the 4th quarter of the lunar cycle, we arrive at the beginning of the Sun’s travels through Aquarius on Monday January 20.

When in Aquarius the Sun begins to shift our thinking into thought “outside the box”. This enables us to solve problems in new and inventive ways.  When in Aquarius, the Sun also begins to shift attention away from what one has been programmed to believe in order to get us to think for ourselves.

Each of us down deep in our soul, knows we each are very different from one another and each serves a different function in the whole of the community.  Aquarius is also very conscious socially.

Aquarius people often look for groups they can join, but for many it is very challenging to find one.  If in the group it may be very challenging to be true to one’s individuality while also fitting into the group.

The Sun squares the Aquarius “ruling planet”  Uranus on Thursday the 23rd; and then on the 24th at 4:42 PM EST the Moon catches up with the Sun, creating a New Moon in Aquarius.

So that’s a concentration on Uranus/Aquarius issues and energies.

You can now be more in touch with what you really believe, not what you are supposed to believe.  This is also a time when different groups, like conservatives and progressives, battle each other. The differences between the radical part of each party is large.

And usually now there is no bridge between their respective beliefs.  This is why the country is in trouble, as there is no middle ground anymore to make things work between people or parties.

Next week I will make prediction on who wins Democrat nomination and who will be president.

This week let things be released early in the week, getting ready and prepared for New Moon in Aquarius on Friday the 24th.

After that New Moon and during the time until the 8th of February at the Full Moon in Leo, Mars will be in Sagittarius, triggering what Jupiter did in Sagittarius in 2019.

Any unfinished business from 2019 will come back to be resolved during Mars in Sagittarius. Issues with Impeachment and Iran/Syria will be looked at during this time period.

I will put out a Podcast by next Saturday’s Blog.  Predictions on world events and Presidential races will be highlighted. So will our individual needs to transform our consciousness in line with Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Saturn conjunct Pluto and Astrology Forecast January 12-18

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on January 11, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This weekend has been very powerful and important, as it contains a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon; Uranus going back Direct; and Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn.

It is a big turning point for our world transitioning into a new age, and for the personal lives of the inhabitants of this world on Planet Earth.

The ramifications from this time period will last a very long time.

The old world  and its dying paradigm do not resonate with those of us who know, can feel, and are already largely living in the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius.

Saturn conjunct Pluto comes around on average every 35 years.  This time they are in Capricorn;  therefore the rules, regulations, and expectations of a largely patriarchal social structure is ready for repair.  More importantly, that old structure is in the process of deep transformation.

The USA is also on the verge of its first Pluto Return at 27+ degrees of Capricorn. Right now the Pluto/Saturn exact conjunction is at 22+ degrees of Capricorn.

That means it is already ‘in orb” of that Pluto Return, being only 5 degrees away. This Return is influential over the next 5 or 6 years.  The time of the exact Pluto Return is 2022 and 2023.

I have shared with the readers of this forecast blog the knowing that the natal USA Pluto in Capricorn in its 2nd house is exemplified by the Military Industrial Complex which runs so much of the world.

Interestingly in this year 2020, both Saturn and Jupiter will conjunct the USA natal Pluto placement of 27+ degrees of Capricorn.  And this happens while Pluto is closing in on the Pluto Return.

So the condition of the Empire’s Military/Industrial Complex must be ready for a huge shakeup over the next few years, a shakeup that will transform the Complex at its core, drastically changing the world we all live within. The Military and Economy form the Complex and the transformation must mean those two pillars of the old world will be severely threatened over the next several years

And so the exact Saturn/Pluto conjunction on the 12th of January, as well as the exact Jupiter/Pluto conjunctions on April 5 and November 12 will be immensely important as we transition into the Age of Aquarius.

Interestingly, that November 12 conjunction of Jupiter and Pluto happens just days after the USA Presidential Election.

And on December 21 Jupiter will make an exact conjunction with Saturn, which happens every 20 years.

This time Jupiter and Saturn will have just recently left Capricorn and the USA natal Pluto.

They will conjunct at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, an obvious symbol of connection to the Age of Aquarius, perhaps a sign that that Age has begun.

So this week, which finds climax at the Lunar Eclipse and Saturn conjunct Pluto configurations; showed us challenges to the Complex with the dangerous confrontation with Iran and the leaving of negotiations with the USA by North Korea.

Those stories are not even close to ending.

Importantly this weekend, with the planetary highlight being Pluto/Saturn,  there has been a tremendous dumping of fecal matter from the Old Chapter of our lives. 

If you have been slowly sauntering through this process of transformation of consciousness, now it is essential to make commitment to the new consciousness of this New Chapter of our human lives here on the Earth.

The dumping of old stories and old ways now is powerful. This “dumping” creates space for new consciousness, new ways.

It is time to renew your faith in your self, your higher Soul self; and it is also time to renew your faith in the Universe and its connection with your authentic Soul Self.

If you need to leave that job in order to let go of dependence on the security of old world ways, Do It.

If you need to leave your home in order to start fresh in new consciousness, Do It.

If you need to stop sharing the intimacies of your life with your birth family, Do It.  They see you in a certain way that is not you anymore.  They will continue to do that.

You may need to abandon any mirrors in your mind or in other peoples’ eyes that show you how you used to be in that old chapter. The old stories are gone now or are ready to be gone.

Trump is on borrowed time now as President, just as the stock market is on borrowed time.    “Smoke and Mirrors” have been influencing how we see the economy.   That programming also has shaped our attitudes, beliefs, and ego stories.  Releasing these fantasies is essential to your evolution.

We need to carry Love and Truth together into our new chapter, and if not the voyage is doomed.

All planets are Direct now that Uranus has shifted out of Retrograde. All systems are green light “go” for looking ahead now.

There is Civil War forming between the radical left and radical right. Where will that go?

There is outer world war forming with Iran and North Korea.   Russia is involved with Iran and China is involved with North Korea. Where is that going?

There are no more eclipses this Eclipse Season, no more powerful planetary configurations like Saturn Conjunct Pluto.

But Eclipse Season continues for at least a couple weeks more- till the New Moon in Aquarius on January 24.

And all the intense world events that pushed us through this Eclipse Season, like the confrontation with Iran, will bring new events as a result.

I am getting ready for a new podcast and for a talk here locally on Sedona that will be a webcast at the same time.

The podcast will be around the New Moon in Aquarius on January 24, and the talk/webinar will be at the Full Moon in Leo on February 8.  My Predictions for President during that time between new and full moon. More details to follow.

Till next week,

Leo

Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, Saturn conjunct Pluto and Astrology Forecast January 5-11

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on January 4, 2020 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week leads us into the greatly anticipated Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer, accompanied by destroyers Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. And of course awakening agent Uranus goes back Direct on the same day as the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon happens.

Out in the world we have witnessed a big red flag event, one that shows us the power of this Eclipse Season: Assassination of top Iranian leader.

Since this all combines with a most important changing of Ages, we know that the power of transformation is deeply at work.

The USA went out and assassinated a man who is adored as a major hero to Iranians: Soleimani.

Since this is happening during the middle of an Eclipse Season and  Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn meeting, this killing represents a most important event in the process of turning to the Age of Aquarius.

The old world of dog-eat-dog domination, which includes big slices of “eye for an eye” revenge, is in its Last Hurrah before going the way of the Dinosaurs. But right now it represents danger.

The Old Testament, which fundamentalist religion answers to, makes revenge and killing for God a good thing.

The Middle East is still very much governed by an Old Testament Yahweh kind of religion.

So the assassination of Soleiman will likely set off a major conflict in the region, one that will draw in many countries all over the world.

Keep in mind, however, that the dying of old world values from an old and dying paradigm, is a most important part of the process of transformation now.

We will also be experiencing now, especially in our personal lives, breakthroughs into new ways of viewing ourselves and our world.  We will be helped into breaking out of old stories and thought that have kept us still clinging to the familiarity of the old world.

The light will shine brightly, even as darker events bust through our world.

What will happen in the Middle East during this current Eclipse Season will put the spotlight on signs and symbols showing us the way forward.

Intensity will rise this week as our waxing Moon reaches climax at the Full Moon in Capricorn on January 10 at 2:21 PM EST. That momentum will continue through the Saturn conjunct Pluto exact meeting on January 12.

Saturn conjunct Pluto happens every 35 years of so.  Their last meeting was in 1983.

That year a couple hundred USA Marines were ambushed and killed in Lebanon.  President Reagan wasted little time before he withdrew American troops from Lebanon.

Now we are full circle of that Saturn conjunct Pluto cycle, while the USA now has its troops in Syria and Iraq. They also need to leave those countries, which does not belong to them.

Leaving these countries to their own devices not only protects USA lives; it also brings us closer to the Aquarian Age consciousness of Equality and Diversity within Unity.

That is where we are moving, and old ego stories that tell us differently must be released. We are not better than the people in other countries, and we cannot reside in countries that do not want us there.

And in our personal consciousness transformation, be honest with yourself on this issue. Do you believe we are superior and deserve more privilege?  Do you believe our way of believing and living our lives needs to be how all others need to live their lives?

The darkness of the old world is about to get much darker, and we each will need to keep fear at a minimum, and instead need to take the “high road” (higher self) into this ever expanding new chapter of our lives.

On Friday the 10th this week at 2:21 PM EST our Moon’s light is partially eclipsed by the shadow of the Earth on it.  Uranus going Direct will help us to awaken out of the rut we are in; see things in a new light as we think outside the box; and liberate ourselves from limiting thoughts and ways of being in our lives.

Uranus changing directions will affect planets in your natal chart that are in fixed signs Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius the most, especially between 0 and 6 degrees of those signs.

Remember that this is a time of change, especially of transforming those old stories and beliefs that reside so deeply in your body and soul. Those old stories will keep bringing you the same kind of people or situations, time after time.: Ground Hog Day

Now you have more ability to break away, to transform those beliefs, as energies of change are strong. If you are given difficult challenges now, they are also great opportunities to wake up and move forward in new ways.

Keeping yourself “safe” in a rut will not serve you, but will keep your ego leading the way.

This does not mean you go looking for change; it means that if the possibility of change is being presented to you now, that means it needs to be examined and weighed and likely acted upon.

Uranus going Direct on the day of the eclipse means all the planets are Direct then.  This does not happen very often, and signifies that all systems are go now, the doors are open, until February 17 when Mercury goes Retrograde.

So many of our planets are in Yin signs now, those that are Earth or Water signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces. Yin means energies go “down and in”.

One important placement is now in Yang sign Sagittarius: Mars.  That placement will give  us the “go light” for new change and adventure. Otherwise, Capricorn is ruling the day, and it mainly gives us slow and cautious changes.

So out in the world some changes will manifest right away (Mars in Sagittarius), while others will be about making plans for action later.

Saturn exactly conjuncts Pluto on the 12th, just two days after the Lunar Eclipse. It marks a time of acknowledgment of what is ending or needs to end.  Wanting to hold on tightly to what we are needing to let go of is natural and understandable; but the more we resist what needs to happen, the more pain we endure, and for what end?

The Lunar Eclipse in Cancer leads us to finding comfort and nurture and safety during these big shifts in the world and in our personal lives. Capricorn wants to keep accomplishing, fixing, getting things done, or at least organized.

Cancer would rather go with its flow and moods, without any obligations or “shoulds”.

Now is a good time to look for the balance. And staying in balance may be very challenging now. Fear is the only enemy now.  Keep it under control and all will be OK.

The light from the Age of Aquarius is pushing through the cracks of the programming from the old age.  Society and families have tried to condition us to be and do in a certain way.

Many of us have been Self Actualizing, finding our authenticity lost during the programming.  As we find our self and our way, we release the old programs and the stories that go with it.

The process is difficult sometimes, but so rewarding to find ourselves and learn the Universe supports us on our Path.

Do you remember how painful some of the losses have been in your life?  The world is in the same process now, with great labor pains on the way to the new chapter.

The path may look more scary now because of what is happening in the world, but you can be assured that if a high priority for you is to be aligned with your True Self and with the Universe,  knowing all is connected and all of us members of the same huge human family, all will be OK.

Till next week- hopefully I will produce a podcast this week

Year 2020 and Astrology Forecast December 29-January 4.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 29, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We enter a New Year 2020 this week, and it will be one alive and intense year ahead (Podcast Forecast coming in early January).

This week of transition between years 2019 and 2020 begins shortly after the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn from December 25/26.

That eclipsed new moon began a lunar cycle that includes a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer on January 10, the same day liberating Uranus changes directions from Retrograde to Direct.

Then 2 days later on the 12th, the important and powerful Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn.

This week now, we should be able to experience more of the reality and meaning of this Eclipse Season.

The holidays have to some extent distracted us from the energies and reality of this Eclipse Season.

If paying attention , however, we experience the partisan battle between Democrats and Republicans that will likely take Trump off the hook of being found guilty by the Republican run Senate. The Senate tries Trump and then votes for his guilty or innocent verdict. No matter what he gains infamy in American history.

This country has descended into a government that has lost the pulse of the American people, and in so doing gives more and more power to corporations and special interests that pay handsomely to the Senators and Congressional representatives.

The idealistic values set down in the American Constitution and Bill of Rights are being more and more drowned under by overly materialistic values and distorted needs for ultimate security above all else.

The lofty American values of equality for all, freedom of speech, and care for those who struggle have been brought down many notches and into the underworld’s value system.

This year 2020 presents a major turning point in regards to those values. The current administration pushes the envelope toward more power for the executive branch of government, meaning toward King Donald.

Yet 2020 gives the opportunity, through impeachment and elections, to reject those values and reject giving more power to the “kings and queens”.

1776 was to be the beginning of the end of rule by royalty or dictator, and instead give more power to the people.

So now we have the opportunity, through transformation of consciousness, to evolve into the people envisioned by the early leaders of the country.

The month of January 2020, as the first month of the year, sets the stage and creates the foundation for this important year ahead.

The Saturn/Pluto conjunction, which happens to be a close companion to the Cancer Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, is set to begin the process of destruction of soul dead elements of our world and its institutions.

Stock Market correction is likely this season, as the chart for the beginning of the Stock Market in America is being harshly triggered by the Saturn/Pluto conjunction and Lunar Eclipse this month. That chart is from May 17, 1792 in New York.

The Trump administration will do everything in its power to keep the market and economy looking prosperous, as a failure of the economy means automatic failure of the administration’s attempts to survive.

The trade war with China and breakdown of communication with North Korea will also come up to a major turning point this coming month.  North Korea is on the verge of creating more trouble. The state of Israel and showdown with Iran will likely also draw much attention this coming month.

In our personal lives this Eclipse Season, we can expect events that bring powerful messages of needs to release anything from the last chapter of our lives that keep screaming to be kept alive.

Saturn/Pluto can be ruthless, and so letting go is essential.  The New Chapter may have already showed you its promise, but no matter what- make sure to let go of what used to be. Your anger and/or guilt keep the old alive, even if you believe you let it all go.

This week on New Year’s Eve day of the 31st, the Moon is in Pisces much of the day.

However at 11 PM EST and 8 PM PST, the Moon goes into Aries. In Europe the New Year comes in with the Moon in Pisces.  In Africa and Asia, the Moon will be in Pisces at the yearly turning point.

But in America there will be a good connection with what is happening overall: The Pisces Moon is grieving and letting go; the Aries Moon is pushing forward and embracing the new.

On January 2nd,  Mercury in Capricorn makes exact conjunction with Jupiter in Capricorn, affording us the opportunity to have real and practical ideas for manifesting our dreams and making our lives work better.

On January 3, Mars leaves deeply serious and sometimes brooding Scorpio for more glory seeking Sagittarius.  What has been a “kept secret” Scorpio desire or emotion is released into the free spirit of Sagittarius.

Mars stays in Sagittarius until February 16. Use the Mars fiery placement now to take the leap of faith, to “take the ride” of your destiny, to go on the adventure, to know all is happening for a reason.

All the Capricorn energies now can help make some people feel trapped or confined or depressed.

But if you do allow yourself to open up and freely follow spirit now, you can use the Capricorn influence to stay grounded, to make real, to manifest in form.  This combo is great for recognizing the natural relationship that can be found between spirit and form.

That is our human experience. Free spirits and souls making home in a body in order to fulfill a function or purpose in our Earthly Human Community in this lifetime.

Issues and energies intensify this week, as we get closer to the important planetary configurations later this month.

Till next week,

Leo

Full Moon Begins Eclipse Season and Astrology Forecast December 8-14

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 7, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The waxing moon reaches climax this week as it becomes a Full Moon in Gemini at 12:12 AM on December 12.

And unofficially, Winter Eclipse Season 2019/2020 is energizing and alive.

That Eclipse Season will be important as a major turning point for our world and personal lives.

There is no more straddling the fence of indecision; no more trying to be in two different worlds at the same time. It is time to choose or at least know one has to choose.

This Eclipse Season will contain many highlights: 2 eclipses; Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn; and Uranus shifting to Direct- out of Retrograde motion.

In the outer world we see a stock market in a big bubble ready to burst this winter; North Korea and China more intent on challenging the USA; Israel and Iran doing serious macho strutting with one another; and a USA impeachment process that is not headed for a peaceful solution.

In January, Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn at 22+ degrees of Capricorn will be closely opposing Trump’s natal Venus/Saturn conjunction in Cancer. His sense of stability and control will be seriously threatened. 

His natal Vertex, often a sign of “fated happenings” is at 22+ degrees of Capricorn, exactly conjunct the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12. This is a very difficult aspect for him.

This Saturn/Pluto conjunction is made even more potent as it is closely held inside the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon of Capricorn/Cancer at 20+ degrees of Capricorn on January 10.

Saturn and Pluto together are pretty serious. One (Saturn) is planet of time and gravity, while the other (Pluto) is the Guardian of the Underworld.  Together they are ruthless in destroying anything that is hanging around past its natural time of life.

This is a perfect time to eliminate the old ego stories that keep you stuck.  In some cases, it will be obvious that the old patterns need to go.  Remember that doing the same thing over and over again, looking for changes that will never come, is insanity.

And now Saturn/Pluto can help you to stop looking in the same places anymore for answers.  When you are committed to stop, new doors and windows will open, bringing in the fresh air of a new season for our lives.

I know it can feel daunting to enter new lands of possibility, and that the demon we know can be more appealing and less scary than strange situations we have never known.

But once in these new vistas of life, we let go into renewal and greater vitality.

And this week, as we begin to feel the breezes of the Eclipse Season that has its first eclipse on December 25/26, we are making ourselves be present and aware.

That consciousness will allow us to see and feel all the signs and symbols we need now, to keep us aligned and on track.

This current week begins in a bit of a misty fog in consciousness, as both the Sun and Venus make contact with Neptune on Sunday the 8th.

Wrestling with details and analytic mental processes is off the mark and will only bring confusion.  Best to surrender agenda with Neptune, just let go and surrender.

Mercury moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius on Monday the 9th, raising our mental vibration, being more open to inspiration and high-mindedness. It stays in Sagittarius until December 28.

Around the 9th, it is time to be in the aura of the approaching Full Moon in Gemini.  Before that exact full moon on the 12th, Venus makes exact conjunction with Saturn on the 11th.

Saturn conjunct Venus puts limits on the open heart’s natural give and take, and instead brings us more into “quid pro quo” negotiations to get you what you each want from each other.

The exact actual Full Moon in Gemini is on Thursday December 12 at 12:12 AM EST. (See all  the 12’s ?): 12/12 at 12:12 AM.   Twelve is a sacred number showing itself in the number of signs and houses of the zodiac and also the number of apostles of Jesus Christ.  It is considered more a sacred “male” number, while 13 is considered more a sacred female number.

For this new moon, we have the Sun in Sagittarius and the Moon directly opposed in Gemini at 19+ degrees.

This is usually a very animated time period, as people get more into communication. Conversations can be quite lively. Gemini provides the mental information and possibilities, while Sagittarius provides the conclusions, opinions and meaning.  Gemini is mostly left brain mental processing calculating and thinking, while Sagittarius is mostly intuitive “whole-making”.

With this Full Moon in Gemini, Neptune in Pisces is involved as it squares both the Sun and Moon.

Neptune may bring more confusion to the conversations at times, and at other times it will bring a deeper, more insightful and psychic approach to any issues.

Let the conversation take you and all will be fine.  Sometimes it is not the bottom line answers that matter the most. It is the connections between people that is most important.

Chiron goes Direct in Aries later on the 12th, building a bridge between your higher Self and your ego.

Then on Friday the 13th (one of my most favorite days), Mars in Scorpio trines Neptune while Venus conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn.

Mars in Scorpio trine Neptune keeps our actions connected to our soul, so that our inner values keep our desires in bounds.

Venus conjunct Pluto in Capricorn brings more insight and deeper connection to our relationships.  Superficial has little chance of getting our attention now, instead we become more aware of our needs for depth and closeness with others.

My partner Deborah and I leave our home for the last 16 years, as we travel to our new home in Sedona on December 16.

Some of the most soulful, thoughtful, kind and conscientious people live in Maine and New England.  They will always remain deeply in my heart.

Till next week,

Leo
