Out with the Old, In with the New, and Astrology Forecast July 30-August 5

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,


There is a video of my talk at the Enlightenment Expo in May that my friend Jonne Trees has recorded:

The subject is about navigating the planetary changes this year.

Please take a look at the video David Lonebear Sanipass and I created recently-

If you need any help with your relationship now, I have done couples’ counseling for many years. Do you need to identify and work out old patterns? Do you need to decide whether to stay or go?  I use the astrological model to help in the counseling process. We can use Skype if outside New England. Write me at if interested.

Winds of Relationship Change and Astrology Forecast July 26- August 1.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 25, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Tides are shifting now as Venus has just gone Retrograde and Uranus has slowed down to go Retrograde while activated by its square to Mars.

We are being awakened and taken outside any closed boxes we find ourselves locked inside.   This will especially apply to heart and relationship issues.

The way you have been understanding certain relationships may tend to be challenged now.   You may have come to some fixed way of looking at a relationship, but over the next 6 weeks or so there will be pulls and pushes to see it differently.   Perhaps there will be new events that come into your life then that will shift your perception.

But even more likely, as Venus is now Retrograde, you will be reminded of past relationships that will give you a new perspective on this current relationship.

You might be reminded of an old relationship pattern that has come back into this new relationship.   You might be reminded of how bad or unloving or abusive a past relationship was.  Or you might on the contrary remember how much better some past relationship was.

Or even more likely still, you will be more aware of when your heart was truly into someone, or someone else’s heart was really into you.   Are you in love with your current partner?  When if ever were you in love in your life?

In late June/early July this year- Venus, while going direct, was making a most close conjunction with Jupiter, one that at times looked like one huge star or planet, not two. This is because those two shining planets “merged” with one another.  Love was in the air then, and as Venus was also making aspect to Uranus, that love may have awakened you like Sleeping Beauty, taken you by surprise, or merely took you outside your comfort zone.

Now that Venus has gone Retrograde it will have another meeting with Jupiter in Leo: on August 4. This will tend to reawaken your heart again.

Overall Venus Retrograde, which will last until September 6, will give you time to reflect on relationships.  Certainly this includes romantic and committed relationships, but also friendships, family relationships, business ones, etc.

You will likely receive deeper insights on those relationships, a better sense of the condition of the relationship, a stronger idea of what options you have and what patterns need to be healed.

And if necessary, you will understand better if you can save the relationship or if you need to let it go.

It would be quite important during this Retrograde period to feel your heart, to be in touch with what turns it on and makes it sing.  Turn back the clock on your life to remember what or whom your heart was attracted to, what it loved.

Do you feel love is good for you or do you feel it makes you too out of control of your life?  Some people actually will shut out love from their heart, as they have been too disappointed in the past or have developed a very regimented life that cannot allow love to messy it up.

That would be pretty sad, as an open heart is truly necessary for real happiness.

Much may change for you during Venus Retrograde, and whatever does will prepare you for a most important new chapter in your life that is wanting to develop.

When Saturn goes Direct overnight August 1st/2nd, there will be a Universal clock that will start ticking again, so to speak.  Saturn is the hand of time, and you will have a sense that “it is time”, that “time is marching on”, that you have chosen what road to take now.

That Saturn going direct will be accompanied by other planetary movements that same week that will tend to give you a sense of a big turning point in your life. In the Global world that will also be true, as signs will point to a likely fate for our world. Saturn Direct and Jupiter will be making exact aspect to Israel’s Mars.  That gives a strong indication that Israel will either initiate a military adventure or be attacked within weeks after Saturn goes Direct.  The USA chart is also facing most difficult aspects too, like Pluto very closely opposite its natal Sun.  The time surrounding the eclipses could be very challenging.

You will likely be moving in a set direction at that time, opening up doors that will take you to new events soon to manifest in your life.

And yet relationship issues may not be decided on yet at that time.  Venus will still be retrograde until September 6 and it will not be back to where it started going Retrograde until October 9, at which time more clarity and direction for heart issues will be formed.

And of course there will be two strong eclipses on September 13 and 27 that will tend to shake things up.  They will especially shake up your life if you are holding onto anything that is not truly aligned for you and your life. It could be a time of breakdown of what needs to pass, and breakthrough into new ventures and adventures.

The greater world will also be experiencing big breakdowns and breakthroughs then, as the streams of light for transformation and healing will be especially powerful then. It will be another important portal into the Aquarian Age opening, and light cannot shine through dense blocks in a system, blocks that represent a clinging to the past, and attachments to that which does not serve your Higher Self anymore.

And Higher Self connection is getting more and more important with every new day.  The ego self wants control, and does not truly care about connections, Love, and Truth.  It cares about putting its own needs above the cycles and rhythms of nature and the Universe, and above the heart of any matter.

With so much transformation moving in to rearrange our priorities and lives, we must now allow our soul and heart based Higher Selves to take over.   This is true even if our hearts are taking us to that which does not seem practical or conventionally apt.

The old normal is dying, which means that conventional wisdom is not wise anymore. Following empty rules will not better your life.

The “connections” will be taking over our new normal, so old “shoulds” will not serve you.

Just look at this last week to better understand where the conventional old world is headed. There were two more mass killings- one in a movie theater. There was an African-American woman who apparently committed suicide in jail after being pulled over by a policemen for not using her turn signal when changing lanes.  Donald Trump is polling in first place for the Republican nomination for President of the USA. And you think he cannot possibly become President? Think again. He is rich and famous and brash, the lower ego self that all too often runs America in the old world.

And also this past week, President Obama signed a bill from Congress that makes it almost impossible to legally challenge Monsanto and GMO products.

Your Higher Self is your only way out, and your heart and soul are the only way to get to your Higher Self.

So now as we experience Venus Retrograde, get your heart’s desires in order around relationship. Stay with who is in your heart, stay away from ego run people who will bring you down.

Transform, repair or heal toxic and/or dysfunctional relationships and their patterns during Venus Retrograde– or get out of them.

Also later this week on Friday the 31st, there is a Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius.   Choosing between what turns you on versus what is socially conscious can be an issue at such Full Moons. Leo is a sign wanting what opens its heart and what will be noticed or popular.  Aquarius cares more about group consciousness, social consciousness, and uniqueness.   The Full Moon on the 31st is at 6:43 AM EDT.  Venus, while still retrograde then, will slip back into heart centered Leo again also on the 31st.

Then on Saturday August 1, Saturn goes Direct and that gets the hand of time clicking as we start moving in a more certain direction. And then on August 14 there is a New Moon in Leo that will put more fuel in our hearts and life gas tanks as we rev up for the big events is September:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 13 and a Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon in Aries on September 27.

Evolutionary energies are growing stronger and your Higher Self intuitively knows the way forward.

till next week,

On the Verge and Astrology Forecast February 22-28

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 21, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We approach the beginnings of a most important portal for humanity.   This portal opens March/April and will lift us up off whatever plateaus we have been resting upon.

Last year at this time we approached an Eclipse Season with another Uranus/Pluto exact square and a most powerful Cardinal Grand Cross.

We all know how much our personal lives and the world changed then, and how we were thrust into a new chapter or season of our lives, on the way to the doorway into an Age  of Aquarius.

This passing winter has brought rest for some, dark nights of the soul for others, yet it is important to know that whatever “new normal” we may be attempting to hold onto is an illusion.

The changes last year are only the beginning, and now as we come ever closer to a portal into greater transformation, we are being prepared on all levels of our being,

I do  not anticipate any Earth shattering world events to erupt this coming week, nor should you expect anything monumental to shift for your personal life this week.

Remember it is Sun in Pisces time of year, so there are more inner ghosts to face than outer actions to take or events to experience.

There is some counter to that inner work because Venus and especially Mars have just entered forceful Aries.

But it will be until very late February or more likely early March before we will feel the strength of this transformational  portal opening.

Then Jupiter, Venus and Mars will all take turns triggering the Uranus/Pluto square, in anticipation of the last exact square of those two giant forces of transformation and healing.

That last square will be on March 16, and will be closely followed by a Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces on the day of Spring Equinox 2015.

That Solar Eclipse on Spring Equinox is an important facet of the signature for the spring this year.   The portal gates will opening then, and the remainder of spring and summer 2015 will bring tornadoes of deeply sweeping energies of change.

In your personal life whatever has been left undone from the changes you experienced last year, will be furthered soon.

If you were without much change lat year you will likely be experiencing it this year, especially if you are an Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn born in the middle degrees of those signs.

Any other planets or angles of your natal chart, like the Ascendant or Midheaven, that are in the middle degrees of those signs will also we greatly affected.

And if you were born in late Pisces, Gemini, Virgo, or Sagittarius; or have planets in the late degrees of those mutable signs- you will also be greatly affected by the Solar Eclipse in Pisces.

It will be soon be time to let go of any security blankets that have been symbolically protecting us from our true soul paths in life.

It is becoming more and more important to stop faking it, to end any masquerades that hide your authentic self from view, even from your own view.

There is little time left to sit on the fence between a polluted mainstream that promises “normality” and “safety” on the one hand, and a blossoming new consciousness that is creating a new world on the other hand.

There is an old world of Monsanto and other Corporations wanting profit before all else,; corrupt world leaders who hide truths and are desperate to hold privilege; a conditioning of minds and hearts to embrace  the societal games of power struggles for status and wealth; and daily trivial pursuits of more and more shopping.

We are also conditioned to believe we need to build bigger and bigger Military, to spend inordinate amounts of money in that regard, while people suffer and starve all over the world.

If you cannot truly believe that we can build a better world in alignment with the Age of Aquarius, then I know which side of the fence you will fall from.

The coming world changes will be devastating for those who have not landed on the New World side of the fence.   They will only know the battles for survival, the fights with the enemies, the needs to prop up the economy, the dominating hands of order against the growing changes.

On the New World Side of the fence there is a sense of meaning for the coming changes, there is light to lead the way, there is consciousness and frequencies to help us to evolve and create a new world,  there are fellow travelers to build family with, there is a  sense of purpose; there is magic and synchronicity and knowing of the connections that bring all into wholeness. There is love and truth to hold us together.

For this coming week, the last week of February 2015, it is a good time to gather ourselves and our lives, to find gratitude for what we appreciate in our lives, to go deeper in our meditations and prayers, to give strong intent to healing our wounds and traumas as best we can.

There is little indication, outside of the recent New Moon in Aquarius, for big steps forward.  That is because Saturn is strong with its square to the Sun in Pisces on Monday and its trines to Venus and  Mars mid week. And the more flowing Sun in Pisces conjuncts its ruling planet Neptune on Wednesday.

Except for a mercurial minds moving fast with Moon in Gemini Wednesday and Thursday, it is a week of slo-mo.

Perhaps late week will bring some transformational rumblings with Jupiter making minor aspect to Pluto, triggering the Uranus/Pluto square.

Much more intensity on the way in March.

Till next week,


I will create a new YouTube video in mid March to talk about all the changes with Spring Eclipse Season 2015.

If you want to know about how all the changes might affect you, please write to me at for information and fees for readings/consultations.


Not Fearing Fear Itself and Astrology Forecast August 10-16

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 9, 2014 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

This last week, with an emphasis on Scorpio and Leo energies, was very intense.   An important message to be taken from those energies is to live in the moment in your heart and with your passion.

Scorpio and Leo will continue to be important energies this coming week, as Venus will join the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter in Leo, while Mars and Saturn continue in Scorpio.

Venus leaves safe and nurturing Cancer for creative, playful, and ostentatious Leo this Tuesday August 12.  Your heart will seek to open more and to express itself more spontaneously.  Relationship orientation will want to be leaving co-dependent ways and to experience more genuine expressions of open hearted love.

Before Venus enters Leo on Tuesday, there is a Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius on Sunday August 10. This will bring a culmination or climax or perhaps some resolution to what was begun at the Leo New Moon on July 26.  As we have stated before that New Moon initiated a new chapter in our lives after the Cardinal Cross shakeups.

Now at this Full Moon we can intend to gain more perspective and understanding of that new chapter and hopefully more acceptance of it.

The roar of creative expression for living an authentic life (Leo) meets the social needs of the world around us at this Full Moon in Aquarius.   Can we take our true self into the world and fit in, or do we need to adjust our needs or at least our presentation in order to relate with others.

This Full Moon, which is at 2:09 PM PM EDT Sunday August 10, seeks to balance our self focused inclinations with our social consciousness.  So we may also be more motivated to find and express what we idealistically seek for the world we live in.

On Thursday Jupiter will make aspect to Neptune, so surrounding this time we have greater opportunity to open to spirit and soul, to more magic and synchronicity, to deeper and higher levels of consciousness.

On Friday Mars in Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn.  Surrounding this day the emotional intensity level may increase even more and world conflicts may get more intense as well.

We have all entered a new chapter in our human lives on Planet Earth since the important Cardinal Grand Cross and Eclipse season earlier this year.    Our consciousness is shifting and changing this year in big ways.

Transformation of consciousness is the most important part of the foundation we are building now to support our entry into the Age of Aquarius.   Uranus square Pluto is the main motivator to change our consciousness now; and as those two powerfully transformational energies were part of the Cardinal Grand Cross this spring 2014, we are experiencing huge waves of revolutionary and evolutionary instigation.

In the mid ’60s Uranus was conjunct Pluto, and of course that was symbolic of the huge tides of change just beginning then for the ’60s and ’70s revolution and evolution.

Civil rights issues dominated that time period and African Americans and women were screaming for liberation from an often controlling and demeaning society.   A spotlight was shone on a society that programmed its citizens into robotic allegiance to its dictates.  Wars and global capitalism were challenged and protests and civil disturbances broke out as efforts to change the world.  There were movements to break down old gender roles and to liberate us from emotional and sexual repression.

In those processes of transformation, marijuana was an important way for many to break out of consciousness boxes, to break away from stuck mind and heart chains, and to breathe the fresh air of new ways of thinking and feeling.  Psychedelics were also part of that process of breaking down old ways and opening up to new ones.

Now we have again faced civil rights issues, and minds have been opening for the plights and rights for gays and lesbians over the last few years .  We are again wanting to break away from the controls of the programming from society, from unjust and horrible wars, from a Global Corporate and Governmental Dominance that is making our human experience more toxic than ever.  And now marijuana is legal in some states and will probably in time become legal most everywhere.

This is Uranus and Pluto roaring once again and promising to bring even greater tides of change than the ’60s and ’70s.

Back in the ’60s people sang and celebrated the “Dawning of the Age of Aquarius”, and now it is much closer to our collective doorstep.   The roar of its power is permeating our collective consciousness, our world events, and our personal lives.

But now the forces of repression are stronger than before. Back then the Vietnam War was ended and the Nixon presidency came down, in large part because of the power of the people who were under the influence of Uranus/Pluto and waves of transformational energies from the approaching Age of Aquarius.

The so-called Military Industrial Complex is much more powerful than before and now so many of the young people in the USA (who were so instrumental in the ’60s changes) are now seemingly dozing to the lull of computer sights and sounds.

But nevertheless we are all being awakened now and sometimes that awakening is taking the form of world or personal events that shake us up so we will have a deeper look at our lives.

On the world stage we see the massacre of innocent civilians in Gaza on our TV screens, we see more needless world conflicts and fights for land and resources and power, we witness Corporate and Government controls taking away our freedoms, we see institutions that can no longer be trusted to serve our best interests.

Monsanto has such control of the food industry and our elected officials as they deny us even simple labeling of food products so we can know what we are eating.  The NSA spies on Americans and who knows how much of our information is available through the internet.

Our elected officials are bought out by all sorts of monied interests, apparently also true now of the Judicial system and highest courts who now have decided that Corporations are people. And of course Israel has a powerful influence over our foreign policy decisions.

The turmoil that is here now in world events and in our personal lives is meant to be a catalyst for change again, as they were back in the ’60s and ’70s.

But now we are closer to the true dawning of a new age, and it will take even more powers of transformation to assist us in our evolution.

So if at times now you are feeling like you are going crazy or you are overwhelmed by the emotions flooding you and events that seemingly have no solution; trust the process operating deep under the surface.    Try to open your mind to new ways of looking at situations, people and yourself; learn to not judge so quickly; do your best to summon up empathy and to look at both sides of an issue.  And do your best to surrender your ego now to your authentic soul self, the part of you that holds the wisdom you now need.

Do your best not to freak out at what is happening in the world or in your personal life.  Trust the Universe and its inexorable movement into the Age of Aquarius. Trust your self to know what to do and when, to be guided to people and situations that are just right for you at just the right time.  Stay out of debilitating fear or you will lose your way.   As FDR so famously said, “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself”.

There is an Autumn Eclipse Season beginning in September, before the first of two eclipses on October 8. We will write more about that in later installments of Perspectives from the Sky.

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

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kaleidoscope Consciousness and Astrology Forecast May 19-25

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 18, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

A kaleidoscope of shifting consciousness is upon us.  Be present for the shift as much as you can, as there are plenty of nuggets of information and changes in awareness coming our way.

Within this shift there is a losing trust in government and the established world,  ’60s revolutionary drumbeats, as we enter a powerful week of planetary action.

Uranus square Pluto is exact on Monday May 20. Of course we know this aspect of 2012-2015 is the first major meeting of Uranus and Pluto since they were conjunct in 1965-66, which set off the huge wave of revolution and evolution in the ’60s and ’70s.

If you are zoned out on your computer or video games, in any way in your own personal bubble of protection, sleepwalking through your life, you will miss the magic and mystery swirling through our lives.

This coming week brings the Universe’s can openers popping open our minds, so we will open up any closed down belief systems or attitudes.

Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal, no more life in that duality belief system.  Both Big Corporate and Big Government are corrupt and vie with each other for dominance over our minds, hearts, and souls.

There is always an interaction, on this rung of consciousness in Earth reality, between freedom and gravity.   Gravity keeps us here in Earth reality to do what we came here to do.  Freedom allows us to find our own way, guided by our souls and the Universe.

But governments, corporations, dictators, kings and queens from the past have convinced us they control the force of gravity.  And as such they have set up a dominance over our minds, hearts, and souls.  They seek to keep us in their hold by programming us with rules, regulations, and guilt that defines beliefs and attitudes.  Our loyalties are to states or families or churches that seek to tell us who we are, who we should be, and what we need to believe.

But now walls are coming down, and will come down faster and faster.   Fear not, the world is not ending, but the world as you know it is.

These walls are mainly in your consciousness, that is where the transformation seeks to bring in new light.

President Obama, when he spoke before being first elected as President, sounded like Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln all rolled up into one.  For me personally, he was Abraham Lincoln reincarnated.  But who is he now?

If Lincoln, he has been dropped into the modern era in America, no longer a country fighting to be whole and connected to its founding values of “liberty and justice for all”.

Now America is an Empire, dominated by( as President Eisenhower called it), the “Military Industrial Complex”, something he said would usurp our liberty and American values, and take the power away from the people.

Obama no longer is that shining light of inspiration, whoever his soul truly represents.    He is part of our disillusion now, motivating us to look beyond the saviors of the Pisces Age, and to find our redemption in ourselves, in “we the people”.

You can expect events to occur in the world now that will help us to let go of any beliefs and attitudes that keep us holding on to our familiar security blankets.

More and more it is easy to see that the people who are running our world are not who we thought they were.  Did you know this past week President Putin of Russia told our American leaders that the bee population was becoming destroyed because of genetically modified seeds and the pesticides we are using?

You do know our government and President Obama allowed a bill to be passed, one that had a rider attached that allows for more power of Monsanto and  other corporations that produce GMOs?

There is more disillusion for our institutions as we learn about unfair practices of the IRS, the Justice Department intrusions of the AP, and a cover-up in Benghazi, Libya.

There is war heating up for Syria and Iran and maybe even North Korea, which would take our eyes off the ball of these scandals.

Our world is transforming out of an old Pisces Age of over 2000 years and into an Age of Aquarius, establishing itself, in my estimation, after December 2020, when Jupiter will conjunct Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius.

Much turmoil, as there was in the 60s, much disillusion of our world establishment, will keep increasing and opening our minds and hearts to new ways.

We are in the process of being Awakened!   Do not be surprised if soon new events will totally blow our minds open and show us new realities.

The old world programming into us a certain Paradigm for Reality is breaking apart.    New world events will show us new possibilities for how our world began or what makes it run.    Nature or Nurture? is a limited belief system that does not allow for the fact that our souls are already “mature” when we are born, formed by past lives and other factors we do not completely understand.   Astrology, for instance, shows us we are a soul with varying energies and patterns when we take our first breath.

Evolution or Creationism is another limited concept that presents an obsolete battle between science and religion.   Neither is correct, there is another way to view our origins and development.

And how about the fact that we are trained to be so self-centered in our views of life in the Universe.   There is life in many places in this Universe, and soon we will know without doubt that this is true.   UFO’s and life from other realms of the Universe, from other dimensions in our consciousness, will be making some grand appearances before too long.  This by itself would change our programmed Paradigm by leaps and bounds, on a scale even greater than when we learned the world was round not flat.

This week brings a groundswell of planetary aspects for this Spring Eclipse Season 2013:

On Sunday the 19th Jupiter is conjunct the USA natal Mars from its birth date of July 4 1776.  Transiting Mars will follow at the end of June with another conjunction of the USA natal Mars.   During the time in between, the USA military might, its gun issues, and violent tendencies will be in the spotlight with powerful events occurring. Look for signs and synchronicities over the next couple of days as to what may be coming.

On Monday the 21st is the Uranus/Pluto square, this on the day the Sun moves out of Taurus and into Gemini.

The Sun in Taurus brought us into the physical, material side of life, and as a fixed Earth sign helped us to make things real and practical.  Now with the Sun moving into Gemini, our minds open up to the possibilities, as we take in new information, and vary our interests.

We are more mentally active, and may need to communicate and socialize more.

That Sun in Gemini will keep moving through Gemini until it gets to around 4 degrees of Gemini just after midnight, at 12:25 AM EDT on Saturday May 25.  At that time the Moon will be exactly opposite at around 4 degrees of Sagittarius.  This forms a Full Moon.  And since the Earth’s shadow will block the Sun’s light from the Moon, it is a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse.

This is the last of the eclipses in this Spring Eclipse Season 2013, though the intensity and totality of the Eclipse Season will not be over for a few more weeks   This eclipse can be seen in America, but it is a penumbral eclipse, one not easily ascertained by the naked eye.

It will nevertheless still be strong in its effects, and will tend to open us up energetically, spiritually, and mentally. This is not an “uptight” eclipse, not one that will bring gut-wrenching emotions of deep intensity.

It should instead bring an opening of the faucets of information and inspiration.  The difficulty for some will in balancing the tide of information and feelings with finding solution, answers and meaning.

It may be easy to be confused or overwhelmed as Pandora’s box opens, and therefore a challenge to bring things together in a cohesive and clear wholeness.

Yet for others this will feel like open channels of information and inspiration, new revelations, new ideas, and great communication with others.

So this week ahead shifts the tides again, and brings us to more active and open energies.

Remember that overall what is most important is that our consciousness is changing, our lives are transforming.

It is most important to be present, to stay aware, to be in the moment as much as possible now.  The Universe and your inner light will show you the way, no matter what is going on around you.  So being aligned and centered will do that for you.    Getting more serious about your meditative practice can only help now.

See you next week,

Taking Action and Astrology Forecast March 31- April 6

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 30, 2013 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have a stellium of planets in Aries now:  Sun, Venus, Mars, and Uranus.  That is a lot of forceful, active, competitive, and sometimes bellicose energies.   Yet that combination is relatively peaceful compared to what is coming.

On April 10 is a New Moon in Aries, and at that time Venus, Mars, and Uranus will still be in Aries.  So then there will be 5 planets in Aries.  Then in April/May there will be 3 eclipses and a powerful exact Uranus/Pluto square.

Take a look at what is heating up in the greater world:  North Korea has threatened war against South Korea and the USA, and it looks much more serious than in the past.  Obama just visited Israel and restated America’s allegiance and its shared impatience against Iran.   USA and western powers are getting oh so close to getting more involved in seeing the downfall of the current Syrian regime.

The Supreme Court of the USA is in the process of deciding two cases that will impact the civil rights of gays and lesbians and their right to marry.  This is a very divisive American issue, one that is moving inexorably to justifiably giving equal rights to LGBT peoples.

And almost secretly a bill was passed in Congress and signed by President Obama that puts Monsanto above the law.  The bill requires the USDA to approve the harvest and sale of crops from genetically modified seed, even if a court has ruled against a crop as being dangerous to public safety or the environment.

Considering how much of the rest of the world labels such products, (which we in the USA do not), and even bans them; this shows our country as being very backward and ruled by the emperors of big business.

On top of all that our USA stock market is manic, out of touch with economic reality, and is getting ripe for a crash.

The eclipse season ahead will push all these issues even more onto the front burner of our awareness and lives.

Our world and most especially our country is about to go through great labor pangs of transformation.

The Military/Industrial complex that President Eisenhower warned us would take away our liberty as citizens, has gained unbelievable power over our Congress and President and everyday lives.

We have all been so programmed to just accept what the mainstream and its media show us as reality.

You know how Iran and North Korea have been demonized?  The truth of the situation is that Iran was run by the USA through puppet regime until their revolution in 1979.  For all practical purposes they, as were most Middle Eastern nations, colonized and controlled by western countries.

North Korea was taken over by the Japanese prior to World War II.  At the end of the war, Russia and the USA took control of the country instead of Japan, Russia possessed the Northern half and the USA South Korea.

Then came the Korean War of 1950-1953, when North Korea sought to unify the country and invaded South Korea almost taking over the whole country.  At that time the UN, which had divided the peninsula in the first place, pushed back and recreated the split country.

There was never a peace treaty, however, and North Korea, a very independent minded people, do not want USA influence of the country anymore, hold deep resentments, and want the country unified again.  Korea has largely been dominated by other cultures since the beginning of the 20th century.

Even if you believe the North is overly aggressive, insulated from the rest of the world, and horribly dangerous, they are not evil demons; they are fighting for what they believe are their rights.  We must negotiate with them with respect for their culture and history as a people.  We must not treat them as inferior and crazy people. We are much more powerful and must be responsible to set an example for the world.

So we humans must continue to question the mainstream program, which seeks to perpetuate the old world and the empire that runs it now. The strength of that empire makes people cower in fear, but all empires are castles of sand in the time of human ourstory.

The Universe, its cycles and seasons, usurp any world powers, and only our deeper soul values keep human life alive and evolving through all the waves of change through time.

And now we are in transition between ages; and so we as a human family need once again to go deep into our collective soul to redeem our values, values that are Universal principles, like Love and Truth.  A world devoid of love and truth will ultimately perish, and whatever life continues after their death will show like zombies and vampires, two fantasy creatures that are so popular in our culture now. Perhaps for good reason, as the living soul dead are more and more inhabiting our world.

So as we move closer to a very powerful Eclipse Season, look at your own life for signs of spirit death.  Those are the parts of your life that are ready for transformation.  Are you on a job or in a relationship that has lost its soul, its spirit and life?   Reflect on the parts of your life that have died and that stop light and love from moving through.

These blocks to life will cause you and your soul and body great stress, which will result in the relationship or job “blowing up” and breaking down; or will result in physical or mental illness.

If the tides of change are bringing or will soon bring waves of change into your life, realize it is your deeper soul, your higher self, wanting to break out of the blocks to its light. Trust your soul and its wisdom, and release the toxins from your life.  It may be painful for a while, but soon liberation and greater health is coming your way.    Your authentic self will then be free to find you the people and situations that keep your soul and spirit alive with a renewed sense of purpose.

This week, after the strong full moon of last week, we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle.  The next days until the New Moon in Aries on April 10 are in preparation for the active shoots of new growth then.  After April 10, energies of action will be increasing.

There is much active energy now with 4 planets in Aries, but true spring fevers for change will increase after April 10. And then comes the Eclipse Season.  The first actual eclipse will be on April 25, a Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio.

See you next week,


I have created an Astrology Forecast 2013 for youtube, part 1. And Part 2. I will put out a new youtube Spring Eclipse Season forecast in late March or early April.
