Mercury is back direct, the eclipse storms have passed.     It was quite an intense time, begun at the Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus when Hurricane Sandy blew in severe winds of change to the USA east coast.     The very intense Presidential Election came next, then the War in Gaza on the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio.  The economy has showed signs of distress.  Many personal lives and psyches were shook up also.

Then at the last eclipse this last week, a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius/Gemini, Palestine was overwhelmingly accepted by UN vote as a “state“.     Only a few nations voted against this, very notably and disturbingly the USA, Israel, and Canada.   As we have been letting you know, what happens in the Middle East is extremely important for our human family as we transition into an Aquarian Age.

Israel is likely to punish the Palestinians for asking to be admitted into the UN.   At the same time volatility and instability in Egypt and Syria, and other Mideast places promises more big eruptions there.    The Old World’s paradigm is very prevalent there, far away from the New Age values of  love, Diversity in Unity, equality, liberation, and self determination.    And remember because of oil and geopolitical strategies, much of the world is invested in how this region turns.

In our personal lives and consciousness, there is a letdown now after the great intensities of the eclipses.  Some will tend to be depressed now, especially so as we head downward through the darkest days of the year leading to the Winter Solstice and the end of the Mayan Calendar.

There is much to process and sort through after the eclipses, as we are on the wind-down phase of the Eclipse Season, which will end at the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 13, as liberating Uranus goes direct that day also.

But as we sort through the rubble after the eclipse storms, some are more unsure than ever where their lives are headed, as the eclipses broke them out of their “normal” rhythms and mind-frames and shook things up.   Now the old chapter is more obviously over.    But  for many the new chapter has not been defined yet.

Some people now know their relationship or job or home life has changed, ended or about to end.  Perhaps an old way of perceiving things has ended, an old illusion is seen for what it really is.  Now what?

For some there is growing clarity about what is coming next, as they experienced breakthroughs into new ideas,  a new sense of direction for their lives.

But for others there is much more to process, to understand before moving forward.   This coming week, Mercury will have started to move close to its normal speed, and out of the Mercury Storm period.  The Eclipses will be seen more clearly in the rear view mirror and we will start to recover and be ready to move forward.

Do your best now not to jump to conclusions too fast.   You are still in the aftermath of the eclipses and need time to brush your self off, and spend some time to ruminate and reflect, to go deeper inside to find your center again.

From that inner source you will be ready to see and experience the messages and intuitions that will light your way.

This coming week we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle, waiting for a strong New Moon the next week on December 13 in Sagittarius.   The last quarter Moon in Virgo begins this coming Thursday December 6, so energies after that will move even more inward and yin-ward, begging you to contact your inner compass and feel your feelings. Since that Moon will be in Virgo, it is also a time to clean up, fix what needs to fixed, healed and repaired, and prepare  your self for new beginnings after the New Moon in Sagittarius.

We are also in the “dark of the sun” period also, as we move to the darkest day of the year on December 21, 2012 at the Winter Solstice.

This also is the day of the ending of the Mayan Calendar.  I remember back in August of 1987, being in Berkeley California and meditating at the Harmonic  Convergence, which was the beginning of the countdown to December 21 2012.  We all began to  think then about the ending of the Mayan Calendar. It seemed so far away.

Much of the New Age was begun then, as people saw that 2012 date as the beginning of the New World.   I have always resonated with this Mayan Calendar to some degree, but of course mostly have been attuned to the planetary aspects of the Transformational planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto, as I consider them the emissaries of the Aquarian Age, which is my yardstick for a New World.

And from 2012-2015 Uranus will square Pluto, which will shake up our old world and open new portals into the Aquarian Age.  The reverberations of those Uranus/Pluto meetings will last years after the 2015 exact squares.  Remember that in 1965-66 Uranus was conjunct Pluto, and this brought in the ’60s revolution, which lasted several years after the conjunction.

And now we will be experiencing the same kind of timing.  The waves of the Uranus/Pluto square and other supporting planetary aspects over these next few years will spread into the 2020’s.

The ride into a New World does not end on December 21, 2012.  But it is a marking point that must be important as so many of us have put so much into visualizing a better world in anticipation for it.  We have gone through years of healing, transformation, and making our minds, bodies, and souls more healthy.

The planets keep turning after the Mayan Calendar ends.   There is much more life to come. Do not expect three days of darkness or a great shifting of the poles that day,as many have predicted. We will not all be miraculously holding hands in a perfectly unified world that day.  We will not all be moving into a new dimension or ascending all at once.

But this will be a time to be a part of a great shift, an internal turn to unity consciousness, to a better sense of Diversity in Unity.  But you will need to be proactive in the process, joining with others, and/or meditating, perhaps doing ceremony, chanting or drumming.

Some will want to feel this alone, and perhaps it will be only a subtle shift for them. Some will make light of it, and see or feel nothing. Many will be disappointed that the world is not breaking down that day,  or that the world will not obviously be a much better place to live in right away.

Don’t expect too much or better yet do not expect anything.    Be centered inside your self and let it all unfold naturally.  Of course we are co-creating our new world, so prayer, visualization, and strong intention can certainly make a big difference.

You can see this as a major turning point on our voyage into an Aquarian Age.   But it is certainly not the end of the world, and not yet the end of the world as we know it.  But we are certainly in the process of moving through the end of the world as we know it, into an Aquarian Age.

See you next week,

No Problem, Only Solutions and Astrology Forecast November 18-24

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are right in the middle of the Eclipse Season Autumn 2012.   The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio brought increased intensity to our lives, and deeper feelings and passions have been surfacing. If you are like many of us, disagreements came up in our friendships and relationships, some very intense and sometimes even nasty. Hopefully you used these conflicts to better understand your self and one another, to clear the air, to find healing.

But in other cases, deep resentments and bitterness came out, and people realized that their relationship or friendship is not good anymore.  And in the greater world, passions intensified, and conflict blew open into ugly war.

As we have been alerting you, the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio would bring a most powerful eruption in the Middle East, and that was a war between Palestinian Hamas and Israel.  This can potentially become a regional Middle East war, as Syria, Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon and Iran could become involved.   Scorpio brings primal passions, New Moons bring fires of ignition, and Solar Eclipses bring at least 10 times more power than the usual New Moon.

CIA director Petraeus has also became involved in a Scorpionic drama of secrets, sex, and perhaps a cover-up in the Libyan murders of 4 Americans, a drama that blew up big around the Scorpio Eclipse.

And as we also alerted you, the economy has shown much trouble- with low corporate earnings, a fiscal cliff to deal with, and a rapidly falling stock market. These issues, along with the problems in Europe, make it clear our world wide economic system needs deep transformation.

The natural disasters I warned about did not happen in any big way last week, but we can definitely expect to see more of them before the eclipse season ends. Of course Hurricane Sandy brought in the first big waves of the Eclipse Season.

All these events are bringing us through the transition between ages, and setting us up for a potentially big shift as the Mayan Calendar ends on December 21, 2012.

We also have written the last couple of weeks about the culture wars in the USA, which seems like a brewing Civil War, with state participants similar to those during the Civil War of 1861-1865.  Lincoln was president then. Obama, who may be his reincarnation, is president now. Whether he is or isn’t, the similarities are striking, even little things like both came from Illinois and Obama insisted on using the same velvet covered Bible that Lincoln used for his presidential inauguration for his own inauguration.

And of course you noticed all the states that have made petition to secede from the United States since Obama was reelected?   Over 700,000 people from mostly southern states have already signed, and states like Texas already have enough signatures to bring their petition to the President. What happens after that I do not know. But with an African American President now, knowing that states during the Civil War were seceding because they wanted to keep slavery in the south, does it not at least seem like some kind of repeating of history or coming full circle is going on?

We in the USA are obviously at a major crossroads in our collective journey.   As we leave an old age to enter an Aquarian Age,  what will happen to our nation?   With our natal Moon in Aquarius, we have a Bill or Rights, Constitution, and core set of values that are about  liberation, equality,self determination, and Diversity in Unity, which resonates with the sign Aquarius and the New Age.

But superpowers are not equal members of the world body, and all peoples- not just Americans- need to be free, and equal, and self determining.   And our whole world needs to be honored as diverse, yet equal and in Unity.  And invading other nations, colonizing and dominating, and wanting them to have our same democracy, capitalism, and way of life is against our core principles.

And haven’t our big Government and Big Corporate institutions taken away our individual freedoms and power of the people here and around the world?

The big changes coming our way are meant to help all of us to release the toxins and blocks that hold us back from fully embracing our New World.

As events swirl into your own life during this eclipse season, open to new consciousness.  Sometimes every way one looks there are apparent stop signs and no potential choice seems right.   But first of all one needs patience and trust, and to believe there is a way, even if it does show yet.

John Lennon sang in one of his last songs, ” no problem, only solutions”.  Meditate on that, there is much truth in that statement in new world consciousness.  When we come up on a challenging situation or event, it is best to look at it as the Universe bringing us a situation that is meaningful for us. It is bringing up issues that need to dealt with, so we can release what is no longer working for us, and open us to new possibilities.

Sometimes we think we are stuck because we are having difficulty letting go of something or some ingrained idea in our head.  Perhaps it is time to let go or release, but our fears and practical concerns hold us back.  Can you trust that if you make a decision based on where the signs and symbols are pointing for you to go, that all will turn out for the best?

” No problem, only solutions”, so there is a way to go that is right for you, and not only right for you but for all concerned.  But that way may not satisfy our ego controls, selfish desires, or security fears.

So when you visualize or pray, ask that you will be shown- by symbols, signs and synchronicities- to the way that is best in the bigger picture for ALL CONCERNED. And the answers you receive might not be what tradition or conventional world “wisdom” believes.  Go outside the boxes and straight to your deeper soul and the Universe.  There true wisdom lies.  There is a way to go that is in the best higher interest of everyone, though in the little picture it may seem bad.

And keep in mind that mind and heart integrity is essential, as sometimes people can see symbols and signs and synchronicities through rose colored glasses or perhaps through the lens of fear.  It is essential that you look with an objective vision, without attaching to any certain way. This does not mean you cannot make intention and co-create with the Universe. But it does mean you respect what is eventually determined by source and deeper soul.

So be flexible during this Eclipse Season, and “listen carefully” to what your deeper soul is showing you that you are ready to listen to.   Let go of old ways that are ripe to be picked off your tree of security.  There are many new ways of seeing and experiencing life now.

In the greater world dramas and in your personal life, new revelations will bring dis-illusion, so you can see the truth.   Though painful at first, these truths will set you free from the old paradigm, and open you to the consciousness and ways of the Aquarian Age.

We have another Eclipse coming on November 28, the week after Thanksgiving here in the USA. It will be a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius/Gemini.  It will also be quite strong, especially so because Mars will be conjunct Pluto then, triggering the Uranus/Pluto revolutionary square.

We are in powerful revolutionary and evolutionary times, more powerful than the ’60s.    All is meant to get better and better, though pain and ugly world events are part of the process sometimes.

This coming week, in between the two eclipses, will be still powerful; but hopefully a bit more tame.  The Sun moves into Sagittarius this coming Wednesday the 21st bringing rising spirits, inspiration, a renewed sense of higher meaning,  and a stronger need to find solution. On Thursday the Sun squares Neptune helping us to surrender, go with the flow, and enter deeper soul realms.  

On Friday Mars squares Uranus, breaking open anything that has been closed down, and taking us outside any boxes that limit our view and experience. This also triggers the Uranus/Pluto square, and brings all the world events to another level of intensity.

And please keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde, until November 26, so stay centered and aware, and do not jump to conclusions. Making major decisions is more precarious now, and signing contracts can go bad.  The eclipses are bringing energies that can take us off our normal balance, and making bad decisions while Mercury is still Retrograde.

This does not mean you should be superstitious or fearful; it only means you should realize that perceptions can be off.

See you next week,


Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio and Astrology Forecast November 11-17

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 10, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

Well finally the Presidential election is over.  Obama has won and many people I know are quite happy now. Some were upset when I wrote several weeks ago that I felt, according to an astrological formula I use, that Romney had a slight edge to win.

This formula is based on matching the candidates’ charts with upcoming planetary aspects and the USA natal chart.  Important aspects that will also make aspect to the USA chart, like the Uranus/Pluto square from 2012-2015, would require in my view, strong connections with the chart of the president. This is obviously because it is unlikely that someone so prominent in the world would not be connected to aspects that will change the world.  And this formula has always worked for me almost perfectly, for over 20 years. I knew Obama and McCain would be candidates and Obama would likely win long before either was a strong candidate.

But this time neither candidate was strongly connected to the Uranus/Pluto square, which is such a powerful symbol of transformation for our country, as it will make close aspect to the USA Sun during the next few years.  So I looked for more minor aspects, and believed Romney had a slight advantage.

However, when Mercury went into its “storm period”, which is when it is slowing down before it goes retrograde, the tide turned.  Mercury goes into its storm about a week or so before it goes retrograde, and perceptions begin to change already.    In this case, Mercury went into its storm around the time the actual storm of Sandy blew into America.  And a powerful Full Moon was happening at the same time.

Those aspects, connected to that storm, began to change perceptions. President Obama began to look especially presidential in handling the storm and Governor Christie of New Jersey and and Mayor Bloomberg of New York showed much appreciation of President Obama.  When I wrote last week’s forecast I wrote how I felt that the winds had turned in favor of President Obama, who I believe may be a reincarnation  of Abraham Lincoln, our president during the Civil War of 1861-1865.  And I stated a new civil war is brewing in America now, largely with huge disagreements between values of the North and South , and perhaps we need Lincoln again.

But still I have been wondering why President Obama does not have any natal planets making major aspect to the Uranus/Pluto square. He does have Saturn in Scorpio making a square to his Sun, which is a very difficult aspect, which is close at the time of his inauguration, and exact in the autumn of 2013. And there are two eclipses at that time which are very close to planets in his natal chart, but not much of importance after 2013.

So then I started thinking how Lincoln was assassinated during his presidency. Then I looked at some coincidences.  Lincoln began his presidency in 1861. Obama was born 100 years later in 1961.  And John Kennedy, who was also assassinated, began his presidency in 1961, the year Obama was born and exactly 100 years from when Lincoln began his presidency.   Kennedy and Lincoln were both very involved with civil rights for Black people, during times when that was of urgent importance in America.  And of course most people know the other odd coincidences between Kennedy and Lincoln, like both had Vice Presidents named Johnson, one of whom was born in 1808 and the other in 1908; Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy and Kennedy’s secretary named Lincoln. Google it and you will find many more such connections between them.

So now there appears to be a connection between Lincoln, who freed the slaves; Kennedy who helped lead the Civil Rights movement; and Obama who is the product of those breakthroughs as the first African American President. It makes no difference if they are all the same soul, reincarnated, or not.  They all indeed are very connected.

And why was President Obama not fully present at that first debate? Was his soul reluctant to meet his future destiny while winning the presidency?   And why has this stoic man been crying so much just before and just after this election?

I am very concerned his fate is the same as Lincoln and Kennedy. And if so I believe this would happen next autumn or shortly before or after.  Is this a part of the great transformational change for America coming our way?  Is another Pisces Age martyrdom necessary to transform our country into an equal member of the Aquarian Age we are moving into? In future installments I will further analyze why I believe Obama may be the reincarnation of Lincoln, a man he admires and often quotes, and look deeper into his possible fate, and into whether we can change that potential fate with our co-creation with the Universe.

So now as I write this we are in a dark Moon phase, awaiting a most strong New Moon, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio.  This will begin a lunar cycle that will include a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius/Gemini on November 28 and a Mars’ triggering of the Uranus/Pluto square on November 27.  Mercury will be retrograde most of that time.  

And then the next Lunar cycle will begin with a Sagittarius New Moon on December 13, which happens on the same day as liberating Uranus changes directions. This free spirited beginning to that new lunar cycle will bring us through the Mayan Calendar ending on December 21, 2012.

The Solar Eclipse in Scorpio will be this coming Tuesday November 13 at 5:08 PM EST.  It will be about strong new beginnings, and the emphasis will be about emotional releases, renewed intensity and passion, primal expressions, trusting one’s instincts, and revealing previously held emotions or secrets.  Pandora’s box will begin to open and we will be dealing with issues that were previously kept under wraps.

It will be a good time to get involved in the mysteries, psychologically, spiritually, and otherwise.  You will find your self going deeper inside your mind, heart, feelings, and psyche.  You will find it more difficult holding back what you truly feel at the core of your being. It will be a time of powerful release of old emotional fecal matter, so you can embrace a renewed life.  Scorpio takes us deep into the bowels of our soul, and brings up old matters that have been blocking our path.  We then often have a Phoenix Rising type of rebirth that thrusts us forward in our life journey.

So the Eclipses will take you out of your usual balance and comfort zone, and make it easier to let go of the past and embrace the future. And because Mercury will still be retrograde, it is more likely that people, emotions, and issues from the past will return. This will help you to end phases of your life that are ending, and for some to come full circle before moving forward again.

In the greater world, issues of the economy and its weaknesses will come front and center into our awareness.  Before the year is out we will be reminded of how vulnerable our economic system is, and how much in debt our country remains.  We may be taken to an edge of economic danger as politicians argue how best to balance the budget and get our system in better shape.   We will eventually need a deep transformation of our whole economic system.

Natural disasters are also likely to continue during the Eclipse Season, as Mother Nature is an important part of our Healing and Transformation journey.

The Middle East is quite a tinder box also, as the civil war in Syria continues, as tensions with Iran mount, as Libya remains in the spotlight of concerns about cover-up. Israel is in a much more precarious position since the Arab Spring has broken down previous walls of restraint and brought more power to Muslim organizations, as in Egypt. Israel may feel like a cornered animal and feel it needs to strike.  If it ended its oppression of the Palestinian peoples, however, it would likely ease the hatred felt in the Arab world, but this is unlikely to happen.

Secrets revealed, and sexual issues are also very Scorpionic in nature, and the resigning by CIA director Patraeus because of an extramarital affair fits perfectly. Other such events are likely.

Everything will not be about disaster, however.    Things are opening up from a very deep level of our collective consciousness.   We are learning that we can connect in ways we never imagined.   Souls all over the Earth and beyond our Earth are connected by a Unity of Soul and Mind. It is getting easier to remove the restraints and limitations, and to find the frequencies of communication and connection with other souls, alive and dead, worldly and otherworldly.

Secrets about Visitations from beings outside our “normal” world will be coming into the light soon.   The connections between our dreams and other worlds will be more evident. We as a human race have made such leaps of progress on the material plane. It is now time to make progress on the other planes, spiritual planes, and consciousness planes of existence.

So this is becoming a wonder-full and challenging time to be alive, all at the same time. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

See you next week,

Digging for Deeper Truth and Astrology Forecast October 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on October 6, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Our connection with “reality” deepens, intensifies, and gets more confusing as Saturn has moved into Scorpio while sextile Neptune.  Saturn will stay in Scorpio for almost three years, so get used to not being able to get out of knowing the underworld of emotions and life. That which has been buried in your consciousness and avoided will need to be faced.  This could help you to eventually relieve stress and actually create a catharsis and healing.

This week Saturn stays in close contact with Neptune, so it will easier to imagine realities shifting, or even conspiracies or supposed delusions being real.

This past week, watching the Presidential debates, I started imagining  my recent prediction of Romney winning the election actually coming true. Prior to that debate I began to feel that maybe my formulas for world and political prediction, which usually work quite well, were way off this time. The polls were swinging way in favor of President Obama.

But this past week, during the debate, Obama seemed as if he was not entirely present, or kind of depressed, or distracted by something else, or losing interest in continuing to be president.  Of course as president he has more and heavier responsibilities than any of us can imagine, with possible wars and broken economies, etc. being such a huge burden to carry in one’s mind and heart.

But I have seen many presidents through the years in debate, and never one who seemed so lost as Obama did this past week. A couple people I talked to this week, said he acted that way because he was given the information recently that his time is up, and Romney has been chosen by the Powers that Be to be the next president.

Talk about conspiracy theories!  I have certainly become quite jaded by our world through the years and know our world is run by the Military/Economic Complex, Big Government and Big Corporation, and that our leaders are all too often bought out and corrupted. I know America is now an Empire and has unjustly caused wars in Viet Nam and Iraq, and uses others’ resources for its own needs.  I can even stretch myself to imagine the possibility the CIA or other government agencies might have had something to do with President Kennedy’s assassination

But I have a real hard time believing our government was a part of the 9-11 tragedy, bringing down the twin towers.  And I do not believe that the Powers that Be choose our presidents and our vote is not valid at all.

But I do believe we do not know anywhere near the real truths of what dirty business our world leaders are a part of.  And I know for sure there are many layers of veils that hide deeper truths from our conscious minds. Saturn in Scorpio and Uranus square Pluto over the next few years, will reveal realities that are meant to bring new beams of light to our awareness that awaken us from our slumber.

I am sure President Obama has been shocked by previously hidden truths and awakened to realities we are all still asleep to.

And much will open up over the next few months of 2012, as we get closer to the end of the Mayan Calendar on December 21 2012.   There is a UFO Disclosures documentary being released this autumn that is expected to blow the lid on secrets.  And November 2012 is a real planetary powerhouse.

Mercury goes retrograde on Election day November 6, and will bring shifts in awareness, election surprises, perhaps confusing results, and maybe more voting irregularities.   Election Day 2000, Gore versus Bush was the last time Election day had Mercury changing directions, an extremely rare occurrence, and you know how weird that day was!

On November 13, there is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio.  Huge eruptions in the Middle East can be expected, on this 42nd anniversary of the birth of the current Syrian Regime.  World War is likely to ignite over tensions in the Middle East before too long.   Our world economy is also poised for a deep fall soon, with hyped up gas prices and inflation.

On November 28 there is a second eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini.   Around this date Mars will conjunct Pluto and trigger the Uranus/Pluto square.

Transformation of our individual lives and consciousness will intensify this autumn, and the greater world will face immense new challenges brought on by world events.

It is not time now to be rigid and closed down. It is time to be awake, flexible, and on one’s toes anticipating change and progress.  Open your self to new spiritual vistas, open minded questioning of old conventional world ways, healthier lifestyles, and greater social interactions with people you truly resonate with.

Let go of being invested in relationships that are unhealthy and unsatisfying, or that keep you stuck in your “old self” and your fears.  Dysfunctional and toxic patterns of behavior, thinking and relating are ripe during this upcoming eclipse season to be released another level.  You can bring in more love and truth, and get closer to your soul, your authentic self, and the natural rhythms of the Universe.

Everything you have been moving toward in your personal evolution wants to progress even further.  Blocks in your psyche, soul, and body want to be unlocked so you can bring in more love and light into your life. There is nothing to fear, as you will be basking more and more in a healthy and whole life. Though there is much pain in releasing old familiar support systems, even if they were no longer good for you or your growth and evolution, there is no other way to go anymore.  Holding on keeps you back, and will eventually close your heart and mind more and more.

Let go and let the Universe take you into nature’s dance.  Being kept within a prison of your own insecurities and fears kills your heart and soul and contributes to the old world and its toxic ways.  Your ego may want you to come to definite conclusions right away so it can be in control, but sometimes it is essential to keep the options open for awhile and let life unfold on its own.  You of course need to be proactive not passive, engaged not apathetic; but nevertheless open to what is coming your way.   These next few months will assist your personal evolution if you are open to the waves of change blowing in.

We are now in the waning half of the lunar cycle, awaiting a New Moon in Libra on October 15. That New Moon will begin a lunar cycle that takes us through the election.

Mars leaves Scorpio for Sagittarius late tonight and begins a couple months of freeing up our spirits to look for more meaning and inspiration and adventure.     Allow your spirit to soar more now and find more joy, even while  the Saturn in Scorpio rotor rooter digs for deeper truths.

See you next week,


I will be broadcasting some radio shows on blog talk radio in October/November. I will let you know the dates soon. I will also do a new YouTube presentation then also. And here is the the link to YouTube talk I gave a few months ago at our Spiritual Renaissance Center.

Storm Warnings and Astrology Forecast August 26- September 1

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 25, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Sun in Virgo has brought stronger intentions to fix what needs to be fixed, “get it together”, put things in order, and get down to business.  But we are still within the lunar cycle that began with a Leo New Moon on August 17.  So the summer and vacations and having fun still has ample planetary energy behind it.

We are kind of in a calm before the storms now.  And actually as I write this forecast, a Tropical Storm has moved over Haiti, is headed for Cuba, and may be a hurricane over Florida, which may affect the Republican Convention, which begins this coming Monday August 27.

But the real storms of planetary activity will begin in mid- September and will become much stronger in November/December.

Mid-September brings Uranus square Pluto again, with an added punch of intensity because Scorpionic Pluto will be especially strong as it will be stationary going Direct at that time.  This will be a time when there are awakenings of the mind, revelations which will tend to shift perception and perspective; and a powerful energy that brings up emotions that need to be expressed and cleared.  Revolutionary and evolutionary movement forward will be strong.

In November there are two eclipses, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio on November 13 and a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini on November 27. Also Mercury will be retrograde for much of the month, beginning on Election Day, November 6; and Mars will ignite the Uranus/Pluto square as it is conjunct Pluto around the time of the second eclipse.  This will be potentially an extremely strong month for transformation, as we get prepared for the ending of the Mayan Calendar on December 21, 2012.

As we have stated before, goings on the Middle East will be boiling in September and November; but November and especially the date November 13 is the most volatile time period and best chance for chaos in the region.   Other strong and transformational world events are likely in November/December.

In December there will be a much waited for documentary movie coming out about Disclosures regarding Ufo’s and extraterrestrials.  Many believe this will be a blockbuster event that blows open our reality to vast new horizons and Universal possibilities.

No one truly knows what the ending of the Mayan Calendar will bring, as there is no point of reference from the past to point to.  But the planetary activity promises great change leading up to the Mayan date.

This coming week the USA political process heats up and the storm Isaac blowing in is a good symbol for our political reality here.   The Democratic and Republican parties have very little to provide to our community now.  They are at war with one another, not in relationship to help heal and fix what is wrong with our country now.  Politicians by nature must always balance a need to get elected with the good of the community and higher principles and ideals.

Years ago, conservatives and liberals were more clear about they separately believed, yet at the same time were much better at listening to one another and trying to come together to solve the important issues.

Now they are unbalanced and it mostly seems that getting elected has become much more important than keeping to principles or getting together for the good of the country and community.

This is one of the reasons we so desperately need change in this country and world.   And if you really looked deep, I am sure you would agree that it will take major events to change how our politicians think and act.

And the greater world is also defined by separation that is not about integrity or standing ground for principle, but mostly run by wanting what one selfishly needs for oneself. There is power and control negotiation, but little of common goals for the world community.  It is my team against your team with little sense of “we are all in this together”.

And all too often many of our relationships are handled this way in personal lives.   Couples are not trusting each other in the relationship, and do not always operate as if they are “on the same team”.

How do we get to a place in our personal lives and in the greater world where people know we are all ONE FAMILY, many differences and colors and textures and attitudes and lifestyles, but all ONE, in it together, working for the good of all.  This does mean being sacrificial and not caring about what you need.  Yet it does mean that the context changes, as we realize that everyone has a natural instinct to both take care of them self and be in relationship with the needs of others and the community.

What kind of events will it take to get us there as a human world community, and in our personal relationships and lives?  What will it take for people to open up to trusting themselves, others, our world, and the Universe?  Use your own imagination to see what it would take to get us to that place?

So do we hope for nothing to happen and to keep our lives as they are?  Or do we hope for drastic events to revolutionize and transform our lives for the good of future generations and ourselves ultimately?

We are at that crossroads now. Change means changing our attitudes, our habits, our way of living.    Can we stand, especially here in America and Europe, for a disruption to our secure and familiar lives, so we can bring back passion, connection, deeper meaning, more love, a real search for truth, and a common bond with our fellow human?    Can we as free humans take individual responsibility for our lives and the health of our world and Earth? Can we truly respect how others lead their lives, as long as they do not hurt us directly?  Can we stop trying to make everyone just like us or into someone who shares our values?

How big do events have to be  to transform our world and bring us all to the place in our consciousness that is evolved for a new world?  Or do you believe that all of a sudden at the end of the Mayan Calendar we will wake up together with no great events to change us?

Life will continue after December 21 2012, no matter what anyone tells you. But will be wake up on December 22 still doing everything the same as we do today, yet with our souls and spirits another level dead? Or will we be in the process of big change to evolve ourselves and our world to an Aquarian Age of Diversity in Unity, equality and liberation for all humans?

Perhaps our current fascination with vampires and zombies reflects our own desires to be the Living Dead, which so many seem to be moving toward.   Or can we wake up in time to save our souls and world?

This week the lunar nodes are shifting from Gemini/Sagittarius to Taurus/Scorpio. Scorpio will be the lunar north node starting on August 31 and staying there until February 2014.     We are pointing toward a need for more intensity, depth, and passion during that time, with a counter force for comfort, security and practical concerns.    The last time we had a Scorpio north node was from February 1994- August 1996.  Check out your life back then in relation to comfort/passion.

And also this coming Friday August 31 there is a Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces at 9:58 AM EDT.  This brings a need to balance our material concerns for order with our soul needs for flow and deep connection.  What both Virgo and Pisces have in common is a need to serve.   This is usually a very gentle Full Moon.

See you next week,

Scorpio/Taurus Full Moon and Astrology Forecast for November 6-12

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on November 5, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

The winds of the coming Eclipse Season pick up their force this week.  In the middle of the upcoming week, Neptune changes directions and there is a Full Moon in Taurus.  These planetary events open the windows of the eclipse season,  so you can begin to feel these winds of change.

Eclipses bring increased intensity into our psyches and lives. They take us off our contented plateaus of existence, and help us to make needed changes.  The first eclipse will be on November 24/25 at 2+ degrees of Sagittarius. It will be a Solar Eclipse New Moon.  The second one is on December 10, and is a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini. The Eclipse season will last approximately until around the Winter Solstice.

The Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus this week is the last major lunation before that first eclipse. It is two weeks prior to the Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius, which happens Thanksgiving night here in America.

So the themes of the Eclipse Season in your life should begin to appear soon, if they have not already begun.  And the themes for the Eclipse Season in the greater world will begin to show us events after the Full Moon in Taurus this week.

Some of those greater world themes are already showing up. The Powers that Were of our old world are beginning to beat the drums of war against Iran.  As we have mentioned before, the shake up of the Middle East is an ignition of the fires of transformation that will clear the way into an Aquarian Age.

The Middle East is a center of the old religions, Christianity, Islam, Judaism.  Part of the movement into an Aquarian Age is a Spiritual Renaissance, a transformation of these old religions, which have clogged arteries of spirituality.   There is a war of cultures between Islam and Judeo/Christian that threatens all of our existences.  Here in the Middle East is where healing is desperately needed.

As with much healing, a catharsis is needed first, one that brings all the tensions and issues to the surface before the healing.

This week there is the Haji, what is considered a sacred pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Millions will make this pilgramage. It ends around the time of the Full Moon. Watch for potential powerful events to happen there.

We desperately need Unity between the cultures of Islam and Judeo/Christian.   Israel and the United States are planning a military attack on Iran.  They may decide to do this during the Eclipse Season.    All of us around the western world now need more than ever to release our prejudging of this Islamic culture.

The Powers that Were in our western world are going to amp up the demonizing of Iran, just as we demonized Iraq and Saddam Hussein, and Libya and Moammar Ghadafi.  This demonizing is for the purpose of getting us to hate and wanting to destroy these other peoples.

We are moving into  an Aquarian Age of Diversity in Unity, when all are accepted in their individual authenticity, in wholeness with our human community.  Move your consciousness, during this Eclipse Season, into Unity Consciousness, away from the fear mongering of our prevailing main culture and its lamestream media.

Think for your self, open to the truth in your heart and mind, beyond the programming of culture.  No country is directly threatening us now, and if Iran develops a nuclear weapon it will be like an ant compared to American and Israeli weapons of mass destruction.

Peace in our world is directly influenced by peace in our hearts.     Peace and brotherhood and sisterhood are needed more than ever.

The revolutions will not stop now, as people all over the world are sick and tired of being controlled by Mega Corporations and corrupt governments.  We are ready to leave behind the inane paradigm of the conservative versus liberal conflict.

Finding the truth is easier if you do not wear a uniform of liberal or conservative. Truth is that conservative opinion is correct that too much government is destroying  us all. Truth is that liberal opinion is correct that the wealthy and big corporate interests are destroying us all.

It is time for a new world, beyond the conservative and liberal, beyond the democrat and republican, beyond capitalist versus socialist.

We now need a world that does not care about who is right, and winning for your team or party. Our world needs power to the people of this world, power to people who care about our planet and human family, power to doing what is best for us all, not just what is best for our team of people.

We need people who will get real about the dangers that face us, like weapons of mass destruction and climate change, and finding new energy sources, etc.    The childish tit-for-tat must end or we will.    The current and approaching events will help us to blow open the pathways into healing, transformation and sane solutions to our challenges.

Use this eclipse season to look in the mirror of your personal life and soul, so you can see what needs to be changed.    If you want to liberate your self from the chains that hold you back from leading a more authentic life, aligned with your true self and the Universe and the needs of our human community here on Earth; then it is important to be awake and alert to the signs of change for your life.

The Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus is on Thursday November 10 at 3:16 PM EST.  Neptune goes direct on Wednesday November 9. These aspects, especially so as they open the Eclipse season, will bring us a big energetic shift.

Emotional intensity should be increasing.   Issues that come up may be disorienting and confusing.  Neptune suggests that it is best to let go and let the Universe, to go with the flow and not try too hard at anything.

Conflicts can occur at this Taurus Full Moon that are based on tugs of war or power struggles.   Decisions on what to hold onto and what to release may also come up for you now. Do your best to get in touch with what you need to keep and what is ready to go.

Look for signs and synchronicities now that will show you what is to be experienced during this eclipse season.   If you are a Taurus or Scorpio by Sun sign, you will experience this full moon most intensely, especially if you are born around this time.

For all of us intensities will increase after this Full Moon, as we get closer to that first eclipse on November 24/25.

Remember, all of us, all over the world are one big family, whether our consciousness can see this or not.  We are all connected by our common humanity, and let us hope we do not need our conflicts to get to the insane edge in order to get it.

See you next week,

Personal Empowerment and Astrology Forecast for October 30- November 5

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 29, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

We dip down deeper now, into Scorpio’s depths of emotion, of emotional intensity.   That intensity can sometimes mean pain.  Pain and suffering are not the goal of Scorpio. They are the process oftentimes.    The “goal” is passion of the soul, of instinctual power.

We are in the process of transformation into a consciousness aligned with a growing Aquarian AgePluto, the ruler of Scorpio is one of three planets accorded the job of transforming our consciousness on the road to an Aquarian Age.    Uranus and Neptune are the other two transformational planets.

These more divine emissary planets break down our attachment to the programming of our families and culture to the old world and age.  They bring us into the fresh and enlightened frequencies of Aquarian Age consciousness.

Uranus liberates us from the past’s shackles and brings us to more inventive and creative ways of thinking and being. It brings us to the higher mind’s lights of truth.

Neptune dissolves the old barriers and helps us to surrender our egos to the flow of the Universe.  It helps us to connect with higher love, empathy and compassion.

Neptune and Uranus  carry us far away from our upbringing and our primal instincts in order to help us break the old patterns of of a dog eat dog old paradigm.

Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio, in its assistance to help us to transform out of the old age mentality and into the new, ironically brings us back to our passions and primal instincts.

Transformation into an Aquarian Age is not a journey to be a good person, in a religious sort of way.  The journey is to be an authentic individualized person, one who honors its creation.

Old time religion tries to convince us we are flawed, even telling us we come into this world with original sin.  New Aquarian principles honor the complete human, the yin/yang of being human, each of us both dark and light, male and female, yin and yang.    We strive in our transformation to integrate all our facets of being into wholeness.

So in our journeys to move past the toxic old ways that seek to dominate the Earth and one another, old ways that reward greed and selfishness, we cannot “throw out the baby with the bathwater”.

As we seek to be immersed in light and love, we do not want to leave behind a central theme of being human.  We humans are part divine and part creature.    Uranus and Neptune help us to reclaim that divinity.

Pluto helps to bring us back around, like a coiled snake, to our primal roots.    We remember we are creatures and we honor our passions and instinctual body and appetites.

And after we have risen to the heights of our mental and spiritual connections, we are ready to join again wth our Scorpionic passions.

These Pluto/Scorpio passions may sometimes make us feel as if we have gone backwards into old passions and appetites that are destructive.  But we are merely reconnecting with the night of our consciousness, the darkness of our shadows and primordial roots.  We have gone full circle and are more whole.

Pluto was discovered in 1930. When a planet is discovered its meaning is seen below here on the Earth in our human happenings: As Above, So Below.

When Pluto was discovered, powerful people like Hitler and Capone and Stalin, FDR and Churchill walked the Earth. The power of the atom was being realized by humanity and later became the nuclear bomb.    Pluto is primitive power.

Ghandi also walked the Earth in 1930 and at that time led the protests that brought down the English Empire in India. He was one of the first to show the power of peaceful civil disobedience.

Ghandi showed us that being empowered, that being in one’s power, when connected to the divine aspects of one’s spirituality, can change the world in a positive way.

Now more than ever, as we live the revolutionary movements, like the Occupy Wall Street protests, we will need our individual and collective power, in peace, to change this world, in alignment with the Universe’s cycles, into a New Aquarian Age. Peaceful civil disobedience will change this world.

So allow this Scorpio time of year to help you to empower your self through the process of your inner depths. If you have been pushed into your emotional pain from the slings and arrows of others, do not think it is spiritual to be a “nicey-nicey” person and take it.  You do not deserve to be treated badly and your being a suffering martyr will not help you in your transformational and healing process.

Honor your Self and claim your power.  If you allow your self to be walked on and trampled, you are not going to some heaven for being a good person. You instead will be going to your own mental and emotional hell.

You do not have to be mean and nasty, but you do need to put up your boundaries and let people know you respect your self. And if you do need to get mean and nasty, perhaps you need to get that way in order to reclaim your strength. Later you can learn how to express in a more balanced way.

This Scorpio lunar cycle we are currently in, which began on October 26 at the New Moon in Scorpio, will help you to get more in touch with your deeper emotions and persoanl empowerment, which might mean some pain too for some.

This Scorpio lunar cycle ends with the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Sagittarius on November 25.     There is another eclipse on December 10, a total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini.

We are on the cusp of the Eclipse season now and energies and events will intensify between now and that first eclipse on November 25.

Allow your self to get taken off our normal balance, and to allow the winds of change to blow in.  There may be breakdowns of old ways that no longer work for you, and breakthroughs into new consciousness and ways of being.

See you next week,


PS- The Mayan Calendar, according to Carl Calleman ended on October 28 and comet Elenin, in its disintegrated form has mainly passed.  Judge for your self what has happened. For me, there was not much of a grand shift felt.
