The Importance of Communication and Astrology Forecast June 10-16.

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

There are shifting winds this week, as the early part of the week shows us a darkening Moon that later shifts into a New Moon in Gemini on Wednesday June 13.

So for the early part of the week,  be aware that you may not tend to feel “up”; instead you may feel the darkening of your own mood as the Moon darkens.

Then on the 13th there is a shift, though it will likely not be a bold shift.  Remember that at the New Moon, the actual Moon will still not show any light.

On the night of the 14th or 15th a sliver of a lighted crescent will show in the sky.

So from a day or two before the New Moon, through a day or two afterward, it is a good time to go inward to meditate, pray, make intention, or to use meaningful visualization.

Expressing clear intentions through visualization is particularly effective around New Moons.  And this one being in Gemini, it is an especially good time to use your mind to communicate those intentions.

And of course, a Gemini New Moon is a good time to focus on  learning, teaching, collecting information,  “using your head” to think through issues, or to deliver your thoughts to others.

Communication is an important theme during Gemini times, communicating through talking, writing, or any other means.

Gemini is very much about the importance of  words and wording.  Choosing the right words is very important in communication, as words carry so much weight in our human interactions.

It is important to remember that communication is not just about spurting out what one wants to say. It is also very much about choosing words and intonation that allows others to “hear” what you are trying to say.

Gemini is also about paying attention to details, being social, and being light and airy.

Gemini is an air sign and a mutable sign. It is very changeable, needing of many interests, and aware of a myriad of possibilities.

It can hold a lot of information, but too much info will make it feel overwhelmed and in need of being able to make sense of it all.

Gemini is sometimes accused of being superficial and petty, but is often very interesting as it retains so much important information.

Gemini is also the Twins, so you can expect Gemini to be aware of both sides of a discussion or argument. It has been known to have two very different facets of itself, and in some people that can translate into a Jeckyl and Hyde bipolar separation of selves.

Donald Trump is a Gemini and his birthday is June 14, a day after the New Moon in Gemini on June 13, which is one day after the Summit with North Korea on June 12.

The USA natal Mars at 21 degrees of Gemini is triggered at this Summit and New Moon, so what comes from this meeting will have a very strong bearing on what is being actualized militarily for the USA.

We all should know now that much shit will soon hit the fan in the greater world, and that shitstorm will help us to purge and release, to clear the way for a New World.

So just do your best to get out of the way, and the best way to do that is to not be too emotionally invested in the dramas that will play a large part in sucking people into the fears, hatreds, and primal tribal instincts.

We instead can concentrate on the bigger picture of the transformation into the consciousness and ways of the Age of Aquarius.

No matter how it is presented to us by the cultures, we are all connected as humans of the same global human tribe, all together as one family.

Diverse yes, but all together as One, whether we each know it or not.

The lunar crescent will likely show on the night of the 14th, so that is when the New Moon train of new beginnings will move forward.

It is a good time then to begin better communication with others. And also on June 14, Venus (just newly in Leo) will make a hard square to Uranus in Taurus.

So relationship issues will be opened up then.  And the opportunity to make changes in old relationship patterns through better communication is high.

Uranus just went into Taurus last month in May, where it will stay for around 7 years. The last time it was in Taurus was 1934-1942. In America this took us to the last years of the Depression and beginning years of World War II. The time before that was in 1854- 1862, the transition time into the Civil War in America.

Earth shaking events are likely again, as Taurus is fixed Earth and Uranus shakes things up into radical change.

Last month in May, the Hawaii volcano erupted, and then there were subsequent earthquakes as a result. This is a great literal and symbolic entry into Uranus in Taurus.

Taurus is most stubborn about holding onto how things “have always been”.  But with Uranus in Taurus, whatever is in our consciousness or life that we are too attached to, will be shaken out of our grasp so needed change can move our lives forward.

And in the greater world this is also true.   Whatever remains stuck in old ways will be shaken up so change and transformation can occur.

The Empire will be threatened so that the Multipolar world that is essential for a Diversity within Unity new age can be realized.

The Military/Economic Complex holds tightly that old Empire and its paradigm and world.  Its transformation through to a new economy and new distribution or world power is essential for the Age of Aquarius.

The next round of accelerated change in both our personal and collective lives will be between the Full Moon of June 27 and Autumn Equinox.

That is the time of Summer Eclipse Season 2018, a powerful time of change with 3 eclipses: A Solar Eclipse Cancer New Moon on July 12; a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius on July 27; and a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo on August 11.

That will be the time to put on your seat belts for another Eclipse Season ride of Transformation.

I will put out a new video on the coming changes this coming week, and more videos or podcasts will follow.

True to Self and Astrology Forecast June 3-9

Posted in astrology forecast, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on June 2, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week there is comedown of energies and affairs as we enter the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle on Wednesday June 6. The Moon is in Pisces that day, another indication of slowing down and trusting the flow more.

Yes the Moon is waning in its last quarter, but the Sun and Mercury are in Gemini, so mental activity is moving fast and needs to communicate are strong.

Next week, as the 4th quarter Moon ends at the New Moon in Gemini on the 13th, mental agility and communication needs will increase exponentially.

The on again off again USA/North Korea summit meeting for June 12, just before that new moon,  is on again and of course the Gemini communication focus should help in making everything more mentally clear during that meeting.

And Trump’s birthday is on the 14th, but his Solar Return is actually on the day of that New Moon at 8:24 PM EDT.  This all happens conjunct the USA natal Mars, a planet of the military.  This should be an important day for the USA and Trump, but maybe in a way not anticipated.

We are at such an important time in the evolution of humanity on Planet Earth.

We are in transition into an Age of Aquarius; and since the Portal busted open on April 15 this year, we are in a New Chapter of life, closer to that new age.

It is important for all of us to be true to our individual authentic self now.  That is an important part of this transition. When we are not true to Self, we are giving the middle finger to whatever created us just how we are.

Or do you instead believe in original sin, which means from the day of our birth we should apologize for who we are.

Sure we each have karma to work out from our past lives, but that does not mean we are bad by nature and should feel guilty for who we are.

Learn from mistakes, improve your self, take responsibility for your self and what you have done.  But don’t let anything you have done make you hate yourself or feel you are worthless or bad.

If you do feel guilty or worthless, you will then try to live up to that judgment and hence will magnetically bring in people and situations that will reflect back to you that poor judgment of yourself.

Let go of guilt,  let go of judging your worth,  or feeling you are not deserving of love or a good life.

The better you truly feel about your self, not from an ego place, but from a heart and soul place, the better person you will be.

Truly loving yourself helps you to be loving. Hating yourself helps you to be hateful.

As more and more people hate and judge unfairly, it becomes contagious. Do you really believe that unhappy people will develop a world full of love?

And if you hate yourself, you will spread misery all around.  So forget about original sin, as it says there is something wrong with us from the day we are born.

And our culture and many religions perpetuate the paradigm that tells us we need to be different than who we are, and we need to live up to something in order to be loved.

You may need to live up to something to be successful or to accomplish something important, but you should not have to live up to anything in order to be loved!!

Sure we each need to develop an awareness and sensitivity for others in relationship and culturally, but that does not mean we are bad or no good if we do not always relate properly.

That old paradigm actually creates “bad people” or “goody good people”, both of which are unnatural.

As soon as the identity becomes “I am a bad person”, you know that becomes ingrained and he or she will certainly act it out and become it chronically.

It is so important to release the old programming now as these new energies come pouring through.

We all are made of dark and light, yang and yin, male and female. It is how we balance and integrate these different traits that make us who we are.

So now this week, as we finish up this current lunar cycle, and enter the last quarter phase on June 6, we begin to get ready for the next New Moon, in Gemini on June 13.

And just a day before the 4th quarter begins, on June 5 there is a potential for communication or relationship issues coming up.

Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn that day, and so relating goes deeper in expression, and intensity of expression is stronger.  There is the opportunity in the days surrounding this aspect, to truly confront an old and unhealthy relationship pattern.

Mercury in Gemini is also conjunct the Sun in Gemini that day, so clear communication is really important.

It is also a good time to think more objectively and clearly too, as long as the intensity of emotion from the Venus opposition to Pluto is not too out of control.

On the 6th at the beginning of the 4th quarter Moon in Pisces, Neptune will be conjunct that Moon and square the Sun in Gemini.  Allow yourself to let go and surrender.

Any tight agendas or pushed for results may break down. Spiritual practices and meditation are more aligned that day. Do not “push the river”, let it flow naturally.

Summer Eclipse Season begins on June 27 at the Full Moon in Capricorn conjunct Saturn.  3 eclipses, not the usual 2, will follow in July and August.

Then transformation and change will accelerate, and status quo will be broken down.  Breakthroughs into new consciousness, new ways, new horizons and new dimensions will be ready for each of us.

Just get out of the way of the old world, its consciousness, its fears, its disasters.  Stay emotionally unattached to its dramas and stories.  Watch but do not dive in.  You will be taken away into black emotional waters if you do.

Keep your faith in the Universe, Love and Truth, and your authentic Self

Till next week,


I just created a video for Summer Eclipse Season. It will be presented next Saturday the 9th of June.

Of the People, by the People and Astrology Forecast May 28-June 3

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 27, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Things are speeding up and will soon be heating up, figuratively and literally.   The New Moon in Gemini last week signified faster movement forward, especially in contrast to the Taurus cycle which has passed.

Some of you had a difficult day on or around that new moon, as Venus squared Pluto and brought up relationship issues, or living situations that need to be addressed, changed, and moved beyond.

This finishes up what was left of the Venus Retrograde passage that ended mid April when it went back Direct.  Though the Venus aspect last week may have been quite difficult and intense, this week you should be more clear about the status of any important relationships, or real estate and money issues.  For women issues around personal empowerment may have been challenged.  Hopefully you are stronger now and will stand your ground with what you know is right.

Is there new life in a relationship now, or is it time to begin saying goodbye? Is there new life to where you live, or is it time to find a new place? Have you found a way to better handle money and security issues?

In the greater world, everything is getting more messed up.

The Trump presidency is in full swing now, and unless there is a major move toward impeachment soon, his ways will reach full stride soon.

His foreign policies, if we can call them that, are bringing us to a very dangerous position.  North Korea and Iran are in the administration’s crosshairs, and it is building a coalition that will oppose those states as well as Russia and maybe China.

Though France and Iran have chosen more moderate governments lately and put pause to the trend toward nationalism, in the USA the Trump administration is still moving toward nationalism and fascism.  When big security issues come our way, that is when his administration will get more militaristic and dominating of individual freedoms and rights.

The challenge now is for “we the people” to speak loud and clear that this country and world belong to us.

This is the nature of an Age of Aquarius, just as was initiated at the American revolution, at the time when the Aquarian planet Uranus was discovered- 1781.

“Of the people, by the people and for the people”- liberty, equality, and diversity within unity.

The USA natal Moon in Aquarius show us those values.  But now they are for our whole world not just America.

Most especially in August, when the eclipses will be triggering the USA natal Moon in Aquarius, we will need to make our presence strong.

Trump’s Mars and rising sign in Leo will also be triggered then, and those placements are opposed to the USA Moon in Aquarius.

So his Leo stance of narcissistic and individual dominance being more important than all else will be openly opposed to those Aquarian values.

This is the potential negative expression of Leo, not its normal and healthy shining of creative light to all around it.

So moves he makes in and around August will fuel the issue of dominance by authority versus rule by the people.

Interestingly, it is how it all came to be after 1776.  Out with the King.  Bring in new democratic values to replace rule by authority.

Remember that the more chaotic events become, the more leverage “rule by authority” has with the average person. So expect this summer to bring very volatile energies and events, so we can transform old attitudes more consistent with an old age.

This week we are still on our way up, with a waxing Moon moving toward a Full Moon, which will be on June 9, which will be an important turning point day this month.

Mars will oppose Saturn on Sunday/Monday, which gives us a stop or slow down message.

Then on Tuesday/Wednesday Mars sextiles Uranus, which gives us a break out and break free message.  So this week gives us conflicting messages.

Keep things stable or break out and break free?

Venus conjuncts Uranus while the Sun trines Jupiter next Saturday June 3.  So later in the week the messages are more clear.

It is time to bring more energy and change into life, to get out of ruts and inner prisons in our minds.

Especially with what is coming soon, it important we each work on our consciousness and step up our efforts for healing and transformation.

More and more people are being shaken out of their slumber.  The way the world and the USA have been moving lately is a trigger for new wake up calls.

We are not poor victims to the powers that be.

That is not what the colonists felt when they started the American Revolution.

It is not what the French people felt when they overthrew the autocratic royalty in France during the French revolotion in the late 18th Century.

This is not what the Russian people felt when they overcame the Czars in Russia and created the Russian Revolution in 1917/18.

It is not what the Indian people felt when they stood up to Britain behind Mahatma Ghandi in 1930.

It is not what our black brothers and sisters felt when they stood up to the authorities, especially in the South, with Martin Luther King in the ’50s.

It is not what the South Africans felt when they confronted their government authorities along with Nelson Mandela in the ’90s.

This overthrowing of dominating royalty or dictators or restrictive governments has been a trend over the last few centuries.

Those events were the changing winds blowing in for an Age of Aquarius.

More of those liberating events will need to erupt in order for us to manifest more solidly the New Age.

First work on your consciousness and release the programming of your minds and hearts.   Our fears are what cause us to be controlled. Our believing the lies are what cause us to be controlled.

Love and Truth set us Free

Till next week

Moving Forward and Moving On and Astrology Forecast May 21-27.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on May 20, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It is time this week for more movement;  more social interaction; more talk and communication; more motivation to question people and question set ideas;  desires to learn more; and ability to be more objective in one’s thinking.

This is because we turn this week to Gemini energetics as the Sun goes into Gemini on Saturday May 19, and the Moon catches up to the Sun in Gemini to form a New Moon in Gemini on Thursday May 25 at 3:44 PM EDT.

Gemini time also brings faster mind and with it potentially more frenetic energy; an abundance of information that needs to be processed; as well as sometimes scattered mind and interests.

The slo-mo of Taurus is ending, as we are also leaving our comfort zones later in the week.

Especially after the New Moon on the 25th,  our minds will get more active, new ideas will open up for us, and generally we will want to get going with our lives.

New chapters opened during Aries time of year; were solidified or went dormant during Taurus time;  and now we will open more doors to our new world.

Also on Thursday May 25 Venus in Aries will square Pluto in Capricorn.    This aspect will help to show you the final results of the recent Venus Retrograde period,  and also help you to clean out and release that which still keeps you hanging on.

In your relationships, what came out during Venus Retrograde?  Did you become more aware of relationship patterns that stop you from healthy, intimate relating?  Did you become convinced that any relationship must end? Did you come to realize the love you felt for someone and the value of that relationship to your life?

There may also have been body issues or issues of home or land that were being worked out during Venus Retrograde.

Hopefully, whatever has been blocking your way with relationship or security issues is being cleared up, so you can more authentically navigate your life.

If you truly want to embrace your greater destiny in this New Chapter of life, it is essential that you let go of that which has kept you protected from the Empowerment that comes from following your Soul’s inner wisdom.

Do you always end up procrastinating and saying you will let go and fly forward after your health is better, or after you feel more secure financially, or after your mom or dad dies, or whatever?

Timing is everything, and when you receive clear messages that it is time to make change, it is best to figure out a way to make it happen.  Figure out a way to get by financially or figure out a way to live with your health issues while you are making these changes.

People do not often, while on their death bed, regret not having paid their bills or not having been more stable and practical.

They regret not following their dreams, or not fully actualizing themselves, or not living their lives with a sense of purpose and meaning.

Yes indeed we have a practical life to satisfy;  but do your material concerns govern your life choices, or instead do your spiritual visions and deep seated dreams govern your life?

Do you follow spirit as your guide in life, and then use the material world, money, etc. to support your soul’s journey?

Or do you have your material needs in life drive you, while the spiritual or religious parts of life give support to those material needs?

Are you an eternal spirit and soul who uses a temporary material body and material world to manifest your soul’s intentions in accordance with the needs of the Universe and your human community?

Or are you a material body who wants to use spirit to energize and keep the body vital, so it can be successful in the material world. And then if you do not commit too many sins of the body, you will be rewarded by living in heaven after you die, or punished to live in hell.

Right now here on the Earth we are at a major crossroads.

Can we evolve into beings who will bring in the Age of Aquarius, and so let Love and Truth guide our way to transformation and healing the human family and our Earth home?

Or are we at the end of the line, clinging to keep an old paradigm alive, one that has no more real life, separates us from one another, and sees little meaning beyond our material concerns or religious commandments?

Look at the world out there.  What do you see?

Get over the fallacious thinking that this world’s current problems are because of Donald Trump or because Hilary unfairly lost the election.

The truth is that our world has been moving to this point for a long time now.

And don’t stay long in thinking “what kind of God would produce this kind of world with its violence, poverty, inequities, etc?”

Forget about blame or fault. It is like blaming one person or another for a broken relationship or marriage.

The truth is usually that the life of the relationship died, and it is time to move on and start a new life.

When they do not move on beyond each other or instead try to reawaken their hearts and souls for one another, all ends badly. Or they stay trapped together.  Their souls decay and they lose their more pure soul values.

And then comes the blame game.  People blame and make enemy, and then everything gets uglier and uglier.

Our human community is ready for a new start and new paradigm, and needs to let go of the old one without blame or demonizing anyone or any group.  It is simply time to move on.

We are in an important transition between ages,  transforming consciousness from an old paradigm to a new one

And it is now our responsiblity to lead the way into this New Age.

And what can each of us do?  We know no one can save the world now.

But each of us can work on our own consciousness and soul.  We can release old and toxic programming of our minds and hearts.

Through healing, we can come to greater peace with our wounds and traumas.

We can find a path to more compassion for our selves and others.

We can dedicate our selves to being open to truth beyond what we have been conditioned to believe.

We can work at opening our hearts so love can find a way in.

We can use spiritual practices to better align with the Universe so we can follow the signs and symbols that show the way.

We can commit to finding and honoring our Authentic Soul Self, and living and expressing its truth.

We can believe and have faith that our human family is inherently “good” and will find its way now.

For now, let this week of Gemini energy lighten you up and get your mind going with new ideas and better communication.

The first few days of this week finds us in a dark moon phase, until the New Moon in Gemini on Thursday the 25th.

Let that event then flood your cells with new life and renewed hope.

Till next week,

Mutable Grand Cross New Moon and Astrology Forecast June 5-12

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 4, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are experiencing an important New Moon in Gemini on June 4 at 11 PM EDT.   The lunar cycle it begins will stretch through Mars going Direct on June 29.   And most importantly it forms a Mutable Grand Cross that includes Saturn square Neptune.

The Grand Cross has the Sun, Moon, and Venus in Gemini;   Saturn opposing those planets in Sagittarius;  Neptune squaring both those position in Pisces;  and Jupiter opposing Neptune and squaring the other planets from Virgo.

Grand crosses pull us in 4 different directions. The best way to handle one is to let go and take the ride, not try too hard to figure things out or control things.

In this case the 3 Gemini planets seek to receive and deliver information; Saturn in Sagittarius seeks to put information together into a defined opinion or conclusion;  Neptune in Pisces seeks to let go and trust;  Jupiter in Virgo seeks order.

All these planets together in mutable signs tell us to let go to the winds of change.  There is so much change in the air now as we all adjust to this new chapter of experience we find ourselves in.

As we gather new information and insights, we are searching  for ways to find some answers and conclusions.  But there is a tendency now to focus too much on solving issues. This can bring us to mental overload and being obsessed.   Neptune seeks to help us to surrender our chattering minds or to find escapes or indulge in addictions. It is best now to trust the process while believing the answers will come in at just the right time.

This Grand Cross New Moon, however, should be good for interesting conversations, for lively discussions with differences in opinion.

It may also be a good time for new ideas or ways of thinking and seeing things.

This is the last New Moon before Mars goes Direct, and it represents us revving up our engines before we drive more fully forward after June 29.

This is also a good time to be aware of messages from spirit, to be aware of signs, symbols, and synchronicities.   One should be open to changes of mind too.

Saturn square Neptune within the Grand Cross shows us order versus disorder and boundaries and limits versus openness and porousness.

The greater world is in such disorder now trying to find its way.  Ther is an old system that is running out of steam.  There is little honesty, integrity, and heart inside the empty old structures.

The Republican and Democrat parties are representative of this old system.  Bernie Sanders is a voice outside the sytem, as up to this year he has indenified with being an Independent Senator.

The Libertarian and Green parties also represent more pure and uncorrupted voices outside the system.  But how much chance do its candidates have? If the dominating and controlling debate committees run by the Democrat and Republican parties found a place on the stage for other parties to participate in Presidential debates, the American public would benefit greatly.

But I think you can see the Saturn/Neptune square playing out in the presidential race.  The Old Guard has been trying to maintain the old order, while candidates like Trump and Sanders are bringing new ways that are bringing with them more chaos and disorder and even riots.

As we get into the political conventions this summer, order versus disorder wil play out even more, and who knows how it will all pan out in this New Era.

In the greater world, and especially the Middle East, Order versus Chaos will continue to play out. Islamic State has broken apart old state borders and threatens more chaos. A very conservative Israeli government and an increasingly desperate Palestinian community shows potential greater conflict also.

China in the far east has been building new places in the ocean that it claims it owns while other countries strongly disagree. And Taiwan is now, with its new President, showing greater signs of independence from China.

And other countries and immigration will continue this breaking down of old borders and boundaries.

This is all meant to be as we leave the Pisces Age for the Age of Aquarius.   We are in a very intense transition between ages,  and the old will continue to break down, though leaders will sometimes stubbornly and violently hold onto the way it used to be.

This is not about the bad guys from a bad age fighting the good guys from a good age,though it may feel like that sometimes.

It is really like nature changing its seasons, except more intensely and dramatically.

Thus if you are a progressive who has much anger against more conservative voices in our world, keep in mind that they represent the part of all of us that is resistant to big change, that holds onto the old and comfortable.

They are not the enemy.

And if you are more conservative and like the world just as it is. do not demonize those who want change as crazy communists or luny dreamers bringing unnnatural chaotic ways into your life.

This week you should be taken out of old ruts and depressed feelings, as this is a stimulating if perhaps confusing New Moon Grand Cross.

Sometimes old ruts can feel like a comfort zone even if not good for us.  Do your best now to let these winds take you out of the ruts.

But it will not be time yet to move fully forward personally or globally. That will wait until July and August.

Till next week,


The webinar series will begin on August 6 and continue on August 13 and 20.  $125  for the series, payable before the classes.

Chaos versus Order and Astrology Forecast May 29-June 4

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 28, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Mercury is now Direct but Mars is still Retrograde until June 29.

Thinking and perceiving should be getting clearer, decisions should be easier to make; but it is not time yet to fully move forward into this new phase of your life.

Nevertheless, by the end of this week there will be more spirited energy to woork with, increased mental activiity and a growing need to connect with others and to communicate.

But first we deal with the last quarter of the lunar cycle, starting Sunday the 29th of May.  With the Moon being in Pisces that day, the pull will be inward and yin-ward, processing all that has happened over the last weeks.

Last quarters of lunar cycles are for processing, going inward and preparing for new beginnings at the New Moon.

The next New Moon will be in Gemini on Saturday June 4.

Before that efforts to get moving faster forward could be thwarted or held back.

Also this week the Sun will be making aspect to Saturn and Neptune, This will touch off an important aspect this year:   Saturn square Neptune. The next exact aspect between them will be on June 17.

Saturn and Neptune have a cycle between them that lasts over 100 years. The most recent cycle began as they were conjunct each other (in the same place in the zodiac) in the late 1980s and early ’90s.

Saturn is law and order, rules and regulations, boundaries and limits. Neptune is surrender and allowing, openness and trust, no boundaries or limits. At its zenith Saturn is right wing fascism. At its zenith Neptune is anarchy.

While Saturn says no under all circumstances, Neptune is open to everyone and everything.

In our country this Saturn square Neptune aspect has been manifesting as thougts of building a wall to keep out immigrants versus letting everyone in.

In Europe it translates into open borders for immigrants from the Middle East versus strict nationalism keeping all but natives out..

In the late ’80s and early ’90s, at the last conjunction between Saturn and Neptune, the Soviet Union was breaking down and South Africa was breaking down apartheid’s oppression over black people.

So though they fought for old rules and ways, eventually the boundaries were broken down in each instance.

It happened relatively gracefully in each instance. Sometimes, however, Neptune can be quite chaotic and even anarchic if it does not see “progressive”results. Saturn can be quite oppressive and fascistic if rules and boundaries are being broken.

The Neptune/Saturn square is triggered this week, as the Sun makes aspect to both Neptune and Saturn.

Watch for the above themes to be playing out.

Saturn is also structure, laws and institutions. Neptune circumvents structures as water moves around, through and under rocks and solid structures. Neptune is mythologically “god of the ocean” and signifies water.

As Neptune and Saturn do their “square” dance with one another, there may be large protests or even riots. This aspect is intensely in effect all this year.

At its worst there can be martial law (Saturn) or complete anarchy (Neptune).

What Russia is doing in many of its old Baltic states- like Ukraine- may be in part to bring back the remnants of the old Soviet Union.

Some countries now are symbolic of Saturn/Neptune as their boundaries are more unclear: Iraq, Syria, and LIbya.

As we change ages old borders and rules and paradigms are meant to transform.  Our world is already looking and feeling differently and will continue ot do so.  By the 2020’s we will not recognize our world now in the same way.  Personal lives are changing radically also.

In your own life what structures are coming undone in your life? What old rules you used to live by don’t feel right anymore? Are you too permisive or too strict with your children, mate, family, or friends?  Do you have “open borders” ot yoru heart or is your heart closed?

On June 4 at 11 PM there is a New Moon in Gemini. This should give some much needed energy to those who have felt shut down or depressed lately. The mind especially will be energized and teaching and learning are encouraged over the next month. Gemini also is more social than its predecessor Taurus. It is quite the communicator and talker and can deliver information like a pure journalist (which is hard to find nowadays).

This New Moon in Gemini means it is time to move forward, but watch your step on anything important as Mars (planet of action and forward movement) is still Retrograde. Your big steps forward into new and important places waits till July and beyond. The New Era is held in abeyance.

This New Era is leading to the Age of Aquarius.  There is nothing to stop this wave of change.

Nevertheless, we humans do have input on how this will all turn out.  Do we fight to the death (literally) to keep the old ways or do we open ourselves up to deep healing and transformation.

President Obama was the first American president to ever visit Hiroshima Japan where we dropped an atomic bomb, killing almost 100,000 people the vast majority innocent civilians.  A few days later we dropped another atomic bomb on Nagasaki, killing another 100,000 people.

To his credit President Obama went there to pay respects ot those who suffered and died as a result of our tragic bombing.  An apology would have been better.

But these weapons of mass destruction represent our collective human hatreds and unconscious desires to destroy our selves and our world.

We can hope and pray that our collective consciousness evolves enough to let in the light and love of the Age Of Aquarius.

Till next week,


 I am officially changing the webinar dates from beginning June 4 to beginning August 6 then continuing on August 13, and 20.  Here is what the webinar will continue to be:

We will be discussing the deep layers of consciousness needed during this important time in human evolution.  The class will provide a wider perspective and deeper insight.

 I will explain the significance of Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in the process of transformation. I will include Chiron into the mix also.  I consider Uranus, Neptune and Pluto as ambassadors of the Age of Aquarius.   They provide us with what we energetically need in order to transform our consciousness and lives aligned with the Age of Aquarius.  As such we will explore a person’s natal aspects with those planets. We will also , its explore in depth the transits of these planets, as they signify times of intense transformation and change.
We will also look at the possibility of newly discovered planets in our solar system, including Nibiru and Dr. Sitchen’s ideas of what that planet signifies for the human family.  This theory if true changes how we view our origins and our human condition.
We are at a very important phase in the transition between a Pisces and Aquarius Age.   World changes through important world evetns will be discussed as well as a viewpoint of what and when we can expect of the Age of Aquarius.
We will also find the time to look at class members’ natal charts to see the natal dimensions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto in personal lives. And we will look at transits and times of change in individual participant’s lives as seen by the transits of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.
If interested please let me know through a reply to my email at  Fee is $120 to be paid prior to the classes.  Fee will transacted through PayPal or check to my address. Please write me at for more information and ot sign up.
Audio recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.











Streams Merging and Astrology Forecast June 14-20.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 13, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Many people felt a great sigh of relief when Mercury went back Direct on Thursday June 11.  People who did not know about Mercury going direct last week also stated they felt better and did not know why.

This was a very intense Mercury Retrograde period that just passed, more challenging than usual.    The Full Moon in Sagittarius square Neptune on June 2 complicated matters and intensified them.  It sent some minds and hearts into new orbits.

Many spoke of their hearts cracking open, or of being thrust into new zones of consciousness that did not connect with their usual sense of personal reality.  Some even spoke of being split inside into two different realities.

There is a sense now that something very important is shifting, that the Spring Portal that opened this year is ready for us and our new consciousness to come streaming through.

Life will never be the same again as we allow ourselves to let go of the shore and take the voyage.

The power of the river’s rushing waters will be too strong for many to hold onto the old reality.  The new reality stream and old reality stream will naturally merge together when we let go of that shore.

But for others it will be white knuckles from the firm grip of holding on.

Mercury is direct now and will be back to normal speed not long after the New Moon in Gemini.  That new moon will bring even stronger waves to motivate us to move forward.

Since the New Moon is in Gemini,  it makes sense for talk or communication to be the next step forward.  Come out of your personal closet space now and share what you know to be true for you.

By talking it out or writing it down you will make it real.   And maybe there is a part of you that does not want it to be real, as making it real will necessarily change your life.

But for some of you, maybe now that Mercury is back Direct you are sensing that this new sense of reality or direction was an illusion during Mercury Retrograde.

And so instead of swimming freely forward you may need to sit up on the shore to ponder and reflect before you choose what makes sense to you.   Mercury Retrograde always intends to shift our perceptions, so we can either change the direction we had previously chosen, or instead be more sure of what we had already chosen.

You should have a stronger sense of direction after the New Moon in Gemini.  That New Moon on Tuesday June 16 is at 10:05 AM. EDT.

The issues you need to deal with will be clearer after the 16th, but not necessarily the resolution or answers.  More thinking and especially more talking or communication may still be necessary.

This New Moon in Gemini will very closely conjunct forceful Mars, so you or others will have more energy or passion or even anger behind your communication.   Straight forward talk would be good.

Sarcasm, or very pointed remarks can put others on the defensive, so thinking how you want to say something is very important in how someone will hear you.

Also this Gemini New Moon may bring a plethora of information flooding in, causing you to feel scattered or overwhelmed.  And this can have you scattered in how you communicate, and then people will not be able to follow you very well.

So get yourself grounded and centered before you speak.  A Gemini New Moon may also bring motivation to attend or teach classes, or start some new project of communication.

These Gemini themes can last throughout this lunar cycle begun at the New Moon this week, and that cycle will last until July 15 at the Cancer New Moon.

So now as Mercury is finally  Direct, thinking and communication get clearer and you are more ready to move forward into a big new phase of life.

This summer will bring us more fast forward through our new phase of life.  Summer Solstice, which is always also the first day of the Sun in Cancer, is on Sunday June 21.  We will talk more about that next week.

On the Global scene, we are on the verge of world events that will greatly change our reality.   Just like in our personal lives, there is a split between the old reality which is playing out on the surface, and an alternative new one that is rolling right along under the surface.

Those reality streams are also soon to collide with one another, and powerful world events will erupt as a result.

On the surface there is an economy that by the numbers looks strong and vibrant.  But under the surface there are issues like Greece’s insolvency that threaten to overthrow the world economy applecart.

And simmering crises in the Middle East look like they are manageable, even if they are filled with danger, like the Islamic State or Iran and Israel.   But underneath the surface of our consciousness, there are powerful streams of new light and love from the Age of Aquarius that will soon collide with the old reality on the surface.

That will cause the power of world transformation to explode in our world.

August through October of this year 2015 will bring in a flood of world events that will blow the lid off the old paradigm.   In September, as we experience two important eclipses on September 13 and 27, it will be the most important time of all.  

So many predictions are being made ( some ridiculous) about September, even by people who are not aware of the eclipses.   That tells me that that will be a most important turning point in human affairs on Planet Earth.  The Blood Moon on September 27 seems especially important, even to biblical scholars.  That Blood Moon is actually the last of 4 Total Lunar Eclipses in a row.

But for now it is time to integrate our experiences and consciousness from the Mercury Retrograde period.

I could feel my heart wanting to break open more fully with Love around that Full Moon in Sagittarius during Mercury Retrograde.  But it also made me feel that letting in that Love to its Full strength would necessarily break down the walls of protection that hold up my own and our collective sense of reality.

But for this week, allow yourself to come back down into your self during the darkening of the Moon prior to the New Moon in Gemini.

Allow the dust to settle from the intensity and confusion of Mercury Retrograde and the Full Moon in Sagittarius.  Meditate, enjoy nature, feel your body and deeper soul.  Then after the New Moon in Gemini, you will be ready to begin to make your inner stirrings more real to you and possibly others, and to have words for it that will explain where you now find yourself.

Coming out with your individualized self is extremely important at this time i human evolution, regardless of what others think.   That means that living your life authentically will be most important to you.    Being in Truth is as important as being in Love. Together they are powerful enough to move mountains and to open the gates of the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,
