Ready or Not and Astrology Forecast March 26- April 1

Time to start up the engines of our lives, as a New Moon in Aries motivates us to get moving.

It has always seemed to me to be a strange time for the New Year,  on January 1 when the Sun is in Capricorn.   It seems to me that man made reality is out of touch with “nature”.  Actually not very surprising, is it?

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, and Saturn is about “what one is supposed to do” more than about what comes naturally.   Capricorn is about rules, self discipline, material accomplishment, responsibility, and authority.

Aries time of year is much more naturally about fresh new beginnings, of taking action, of moving forward, and initiating.  To me that feels much more like New Year.

Spring Equinox is the beginning of Sun in Aries, but the New Moon in Aries (when the Moon catches up to the Sun in Aries) seems like the most powerful time energetically for New Year.

New Moon in Aries 2017 is Monday March 27 at 10:57 PM EDT.  So on Tuesday the 28th we can start the ignition for our lives this year.

Pisces time of year, a time of internal psychological and spiritual movement, is passing.  Grief has been really strong for many people lately and that is aligned with the energy of Pisces.

So it is time to finish up the process of releasing the past, for now, and instead we can start to move forward with more conscious intention.

This Aries New Moon also effectively ends Eclipse Season.  So the events that will be coming soon will be resulting from what shook up during Eclipse Season, which goes back to late January.

World events that have been brewing and boiling will be ready soon to erupt into our lives.

The Trump administration, along with many nationalistic movements in the world, are setting things up in a way similar to before the start of World War II.

Mussolini, Franco, and Hitler represented this nationalism and the power of individual leaders over their citizens.

The United States in its beginning was a healthy reaction to a world of Kings and Queens, dictators, and abuse of power.

Now with the Trump administration, there is a movement toward more power for the president and the executive branch of the goverment. Other countries are moving in that direction also.

Power of the people is being threatened as a result, and it is time for the people to speak even louder, and now also to act.

Our country’s core values are at stake, and the current self assuming King will need to be somehow counteracted or overthrown.

Usually the way that the King gets more power is through a crisis like war or terrorism or economic downturn, when people are so afraid that they want “daddy” to make them feel safe and secure.

This time when the crises hit, and they will, we the people must take responsibility for our country and world- not turn it over to the “royalty” or saviors.

Saviors are part of the Pisces Age, and we are moving fast toward group action in an Age of Aquarius.

No longer can we consider our leaders as Gods, royalty , or saviors.

We  are the ones we are looking for to heal our Earth and human family, not the “special ones” or “privileged ones”.

So yes we can expect major world crises to shake things up and open up the portals to new ways and new consciousness.

That means more and more people will be awakened, and those already awakened will take more responsibility for our world and human family.

The old traditional ways no longer work right, and we cannot keep trying to revive them so we can bring the world back to how it used to be. “Used to be” is dead and gone.

We are ready to create the new world, and many people are already doing that in their personal lives and consciousness.

And with each transformational jolt we receive, the energy to create this new world in both our personal and collective lives increases.

And August this year will be a big turning point for us, as there are 2 powerful eclipses, especially the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21. That one will be the first since 1918 to travel over the whole of the United States .  99 years ago that happened.

So let go of how you wanted the changes to happen.  We need to deal with what has really happened.

We can now stop crying and instead get started again moving forward on our authentic soul path. The aligned connection to our true self and the Universe is what we need as a foundation for our life and our contribution to our world.

Fear is your only enemy now, as it is debilitating and if held to for long leads to depression, hatreds, disconnections, and very bad choices.

So this week, let’s get back up.

There is a strong New Moon in Aries late on the 27th, then a powerful Jupiter square Pluto mid week.

That Jupiter square Pluto triggers the Cardinal T-Square that keeps staying with us. Seven of our 10 planets will then be in Cardinal signs, which means important new starts.

The cardinal signs, which represent the beginning sign of each season, also quite arguably bring out the most important parts of our lives.

Aries is being true to self and personal survival; Cancer is home, family, and inner values; Libra is relationships and social consciousness; and Capricorn is outer values and accomplishment in the world. 

All these integral parts of what it means to be alive are being challenged to grow and evolve in our lives.

This week allow the new energies to rouse you out of your sleepiness or out of your bubble of protection.

Take the ride.

Till next week,


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.

Cardinal T-Square and Astrology Forecast for August 1- August 7

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on July 31, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we finish up the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 11.    Monday August 2 begins the last quarter of that lunar cycle.   The next new moon, which starts the next lunar cycle, is on August 9 in Leo.  

These last few days of this lunar cycle may be quite intense, especially with a Jupiter square Pluto aspect early this week.   They will give more shakes and bumps on our voyage through the Eclipses and Grand Cross and Cardinal T-square of the summer of 2010.    We have been taken out of our old comfort zones.  We are being initiated into new chapters of our life drama, both on a personal level and in the greater world.    Turning points and crossroads are being faced by many.  

The second half of summer begins this week, and we are now in the middle of a T square of planets in the very early degrees of cardinal signs.  The Cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.   A Grand Cross would give us planets in all four of those signs.    A  T-square has planets in three of those signs, in this case Aries (Jupiter and Uranus), Libra (Mars and Saturn), and Capricorn (Pluto).  

This kind of aspect builds tension because it is pulling in 3 different directions.  The Libra planets want peace and civility; the Aries planets want action and forward movement; Pluto in Capricorn wants restructuring out of old forms and patterns. The fact they are all in early Cardinal signs shows we are pushing forward into new seasons of our lives, as cardinal signs are the signs of the first months of the seasons. 

Late on August 6 into early August 7, when the Moon is in early Cancer, there will a few hours of a full Grand Cross, not just a t-square.  The t-square stays in effect into September.

In the greater world,  the likelihood of important events will increase.   Though the big astrological aspects will pass this autumn, the possibility of big events will stay.    Oftentimes the astrological aspects shake us out of our comfort zones and get us ready for the events which follow.  Autumn 2010 may have even more dramatic events than summer 2010.

The biggest world event this year so far has been the blow up of the oil rig in the gulf and the subsequent huge oil spill.  Now that the spill has been temporarily plugged, government officials and media voices have been telling us the spill is not so bad now for our oceans and wildlife anymore.   They say very little oil is now being detected on the surface of the waters.   This has been a most horrible devastation for our Earth, its creaures and the balance of nature. 

The denial, however, is typical of our world order.  It always tries to go back to “normal” and not make any real changes. It is like a dysfunctional family that has a huge blowout, and everyone tears each other apart, saying and doing things that are so hurtful, mean, and destructive.   Then after the storm blows over they go back to same-old, same-old.  They push everything under the rug, acting like nothing ever happened.  Yet all the resentments stay inside, everyone trusts each other less and less, relationships are harmed forever.  There is never any real effort to repair the damage, to heal the wounds, to transform and change old patterns that have closed hearts and souls to one another.

And in our greater world, will the oil drilling now stop, after such a horrible disaster?  No.   Will the efforts to find alternative energy sources intensify? Likely no.   But yes this old world paradigm, this Old World Order, will face more and more disasters.

We know this because we know in our own personal lives we get “hit over the head” by life when we get off track from our authentic self and our soul’s path.   It is a warning. We can make change or not, our choice. But if we don’t we get another whack, maybe through an illness, maybe through losing a relationship or a job.   We can then choose to make changes, get on track or not.  The whacks get bigger, maybe not right away, but eventually when the planets come around again.

We can now choose, as the planetary action is intense, to jump on the train of our soul’s path, to bring more sanity and connections into our lives, connections to our authentic self and soul, to each other, and to the magic of the Universe.   We can choose to be a part of an Aquarian Age growing stronger every day.

Or we can choose to jump on the train of the dramas of an old world dying.   We can watch in awe at the spectacles of celebrity and privilege, fame and wealth.    We can cringe in fear or rise in hatred for the enemies who we need to kill in order to keep our nation or religion’s team number one.   We can play the game we have been taught by our society, or we can connect to being a real human being on the Earth in a greater community of beings in the Universe.

If you do choose to be that real human being, get ready to help heal our human family and Earth and transform our consciousness and ways into a new Aquarian Age.

Likely this year the economy will suffer more, and war cries will yell out against Iran.   Do not be sucked into the fear or the hatred for the enemy.  It will suck the soul out of you, will take you away from your life path.

Life can still be beautiful, loving, compassionate, and fair, if that is the frequency you choose to live in.  The people and circumstances you need will follow.   The Aquarian Age is now inside ourselves, not a perfect world, still with problems, but still also with love and hope and kindness.

Astrology teaches that you are the center of your world, of your life dramas. As you transform your consciousness and life, all transforms around you.  Not all at once, as the Universe needs to know you are committed to this soul journey, but slowly and eventually.  

Use the shifts of 2010 to make the changes you need to make to keep you in your soul and its true life journey.

See you next week,

Unity Consciousness and Astrology Forecast for July 25-31

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 24, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

There has been a slight break from the great intensity of the recent eclipses, most especially the powerful Lunar Eclipse Grand Cross on June 26.  That eclipse Grand Cross on June 26 included planets mostly in the early degrees of cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, and Capricorn.   The intensity was strong up to that eclipse and continued until the Solar Eclipse on July 11.  Much energy was released then. Now intensity is building again and world and personal events will increase in activity.    

 Things are heating up again, as there is a formation of a t-square of cardinal planets, again in the early degrees of cardinal signs.  It is bringing the shifting tides in again. 

This coming week, Jupiter squares Pluto and Saturn opposes Uranus , all within the early degrees of Aries, Libra, and Capricorn.  August should be a challenging month ahead, especially so in world events.

Bigger Picture

What is going on in the bigger picture is that we are leaving an old and tired age and its paradigm and entering a New Age and paradigm.   Achieving more unity consciousness is so important to this process of changing ages. 

And that is so difficult to do sometmes as we experience such horrible world events like 2 wars in Afghanistan, more wars brewing in Korea and in the Middle East with Iran, a horrible oil spill in the gulf region of the USA and another one that erupted in China last week.   These spills are sending us all a very important message to change our ways, as natural life is being destroyed and our balance of nature is so severely upset. We also have a weak economy, and it is not to get strong until it transforms into a new and more equitable system.

We see a two party political system where the two parties are constantly at war with one another, bought out by special interests and mega corporations and not working for the common good anymore.

Many people have been feeling more helpless to do anything about these problems, and instead often feel hopeless and disillusioned and cynical about the hopes for the future of the world.

To cope people more and more are turning to addictions, to popping pills to escape depression and anxiety, drinking more, getting lost on the internet or working and rushing around all the time.

What then suffers is our connection to our inner world, our soul and spiritual connections.

Some are afraid that we face a doomsday scenario in 2012.

There is no end soon of the world difficulties coming our way, and as a result we will be severely challenged to be in Unity Consciousness, a prerequisite for healthy living in an Aquarian Age.    We will continue to see difficult world events and they are likely to get more challenging over the next few years.

We are in transition between worlds and Ages. Mayan prophecy points to 2011-2012 as turning points from one world consciousness to another- from a world of separation to a world of unity.   Astrology cycles tell us we are leaving a Pisces Age, begun over 2000 years ago, and we are now on the cusp of an Aquarian Age, an age of equality, liberation, and most importantly Diversity in Unity.

Ther is an old “dog-eat-dog”  world of “Being better than or having more than” that needs to die.  In that world paradigm we have been taught that we cannot trust one another, cannot trust ourselves, cannot trust the Universe/God/Goddess.  We have been taught to put our attention and energy into our own survival or the survival of our family or to the loyalty of a flag or our religion against the interests of others from differnt families, or nations, or religions or races. These teachings are all counter to true Unity consciousness.

Let’s look back to the beginnings of the Pisces Age over 2000 years ago.  Christ was born and Rome was our first Empire. Buddha was born on the cusp of that age, just a few hundred years before Christ, and Mohammed was born on the later part of the cusp, just a few hundred years after Christ.

These three spiritual masters were the soul of the three most powerful religions over the 2000 years of the Pisces Age.  These, in the beginning, spiritually based religions were a powerful balance for the materialism of the empires of the world.

But slowly over the years much of these religions that still speak the name of their prophets or masters have lost their soul, lost the true messages of love, peace, compassion and truth.  They have forgotten about turning the other cheek or loving thy enemies, or caring for the most vulnerable and lost members of the world.   Unbelievably many speak of doing battle against one another.

And as a result of this religious decay, society has as a result lost its soul, it true spirutality. And we have lost the spiritual strenght that balances the power of Caesar, of the empire of Might makes Right.

That empire and its society has been trying to convince us we live in a random world without real sacredness or meaning, a world where everything and everyone is separate, each of us on our own, fighting to survive ina meaningless world.

This belief then breeds fear and mistrust, in one another, of the world and the Universe. 

That world view must and will die,  as did the idea of a flat world.

An Aquarian Age is being born in its ashes.

But we must take with us into this Aquarian Age, the best and the essence of the Pisces Age: the love and compassion that the spiritual masters brought with them.

The battle between society’s cynicism and religion’s sacrificing self denial will end, however.

There is no self denial or self sacrifice in Aquarius.  It is about the strength of the individual, the authentic, distinct individual, truating in their own natural inclinations, in unity and community with all others and with everything .

This new individual does not need masters or saviors or intermediaries to God.  This new individual knows his or her own connection to spirit, and from that connection takes responsibility, as a free world citizen for thier specific function and role in the community and Universe.

No more original sin and needing to be saved. No more devils and demons.  No more enemies to make war against.

We instead go to the kingdom within and find integration and wholeness there.  We go inside our souls to find balance and unity between our own light and dark, our own male and female, jsut like the Yin/Yang symbol.   WE are whole and unified- in Unity consciousness.  This is the foundation for making unity in the world, for making Diversity in Unity in the world of the Aquarian Age.

We must be ready now for the coming challenges that a transition between ages brings with it.  As Rome burns:

We do not need to cower in the dark, weakly holdiing hands with one another in fear.

Instead we hold hands in healthy community, each of us in our own strong, individualized, authentic beautiful selves as the Universe made us, connected together on our sacred meaningful souls journeys into a New Aquarian Age.

The coming challenges are meant to help us release our dysfunctional attachment to an old model of reality and its fears, and to transform our hearts, minds and lives to our own care, free and open, and to the care of one another- not under the control of society or nation.

We move into this Aquarian Age, with hope in our hearts, unified in our souls, knowing we are all one family, on the Earth, unified together with all in this wondrous Universe.
