Revolution and Astrology Forecast April 19-25

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Please remember that we are in transition between Ages- moving from a now dying Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius. 

The Age of Pisces began around the birth of Jesus Christ, maybe 100 or 200 years before that birth.

The Christ birth turned into the Christian religion.  Anything in the name of Christ is Pisces, the sign of compassion, sacrifice, soul, and even savior.

The opposite sign of the sign of an Age is important- actually together they create the New Age.

Virgo is the sign opposite Pisces and Virgo in this case represents the material plane, distinctly opposite the soul plane of Pisces.

An old expression, paraphrased is ” Give unto Caesar or give unto Christ” .

The Roman Empire existed at the same time as Christ and the birth of the Christian Religion.

And so this was the first look at an important theme for the Age of Pisces: working with the dichotomy of body and soul.

Religions often speak of the soul leaving the body after death and being weighed for entrance into heaven or hell.

The Muslim religion had its beginnings with Mohammed- who existed just a few hundred years later in the 7th Century AD.

These two religions have been the most influential ones for the masses of humanity.

On the Virgo side of materialism, there have been many Empires: Roman, Ottoman (Turkey), British, Spanish, Soviet Union, and now the last Empire of the Pisces Age- the USA Military Industrial complex which is expanded to include Europe and NATO and Israel.

Israel is of course the root religion for both Muslim and Christian. It is root religion for believing in the One Male God .

This is much different from what came previously- the many Gods and Goddesses of Rome and Greece.

And now we face the transformation of both Empires and Religions.

Empires transform into Aquarian Age ideals of Equality and Diversity in Unity.  No Empires, becoming more like the United Nations, but without a Security Council of states that rule over all the other countries with more privilege to decide how the world is run- Russia, USA, China, Britain, and France.

And traditional religions transform into individuals connecting directly to the God Force or Universe, whatever words one uses for the Spirit realm of consciousness.

At the Uranus/Neptune conjunction in the early 1990’s, humanity gave more attention to the Social Networks (Uranus) and the Soul realm (Neptune).

The early 90’s also brought us to the computer and internet revolution, another outgrowth of Uranus conjunct Neptune.

Remember that the 3 transformational planets are Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. They were discovered respectively in 1781, 1846 and 1930.

Uranus in 1781 synchronized with the revolutions of  the USA and France. Uranus is the ruling planet of Aquarius, and is about revolution, rebellion, liberty, awakenings, Diversity within the Unity of the greater community, freedom of expression, and people power without needing of Kings, Queens, Dictators or anyone else who dominates the will of the people.

Neptune in 1846 synchronized with Karl Marx and the industrial revolution which was generally abusive and unfair to the people, whose souls suffered as peons of Big Industry.

And in 1930 Pluto synchronized with Ghandi and the civil disobedience of the Indian people against the Power of the British Empire.  This was about people knowing their own Power- the Power of the People. Britain soon after left India to rule themselves.

We can see how the world on the way to the Age of Aquarius, needed to move beyond the energy and messages of a world that had Saturn as the planet furthest away from Earth.

In that position it became the One God of the Old Testament, the 10 commandments, linear thinking, a sense of limitation, and of consequence for breaking rules or committing sins.

Saturn is also “the end”, death, Father Time and the Patriarchy.

You can see how Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are the ambassadors for the consciousness needed to usher in the Age of Aquarius.

And this year is an important crossroad on the way into the Age of Aquarius. In December 2020 is an important turning point into that Age when Jupiter conjuncts Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius.

Will speak much more about all this in other forecast blogs this year.

And these issues will be in the spotlight of the webinars I will give on May 9, June 5 and July 11. All begin at 10:30 AM Pacific Time and will last till noon or 12:30 PM.

If interested please write to me at Cost is $20 for each webinar, and you can attend one, two or all 3. If you want to listen to the first one too from early April it will be $70 for all, which will include a recording of the April webinar.

Purpose of the webinars is to help in understanding what is going on in our world, to get a bigger picture and deeper insight into our journey now. And this includes all of our personal journeys now too, learning how to navigate this passage into the Age of Aquarius.

This week there is a shift into Taurus energies. The Sun moves into Taurus on April 19 and the Moon joins the Sun in Taurus at 3+ degrees of Taurus- to form a New Moon in Taurus on Wednesday April 22 at 10:26 PM EDT.

Early this week we are in the dark moon phase of the lunar cycle, giving us pause to reflect  before the New Moon on the 22nd. Resist urges to be depressed.

Of course most have been given the ability for finding greater inner connections with the Virus keeping us at home.

Taurus seeks to consolidate, to manifest, to make more solid and/or comfortable. It takes in better than it gives out, and often wants to hold onto very tightly what it has let in.

And that includes people or possessions. It can become very possessive.

And as a fixed earth sign it will hold firmly to what it wants or believes in. Its reputation for being stubborn has been well earned.

Money and material security are very important to Taurus.   The country’s desire now to focus more on money and economy and somewhat less on the Virus which keeps everyone at home, is connected to this Taurus need, which is for better and worse it seems.

Toward the end of the week on Saturday April 25, Pluto shifts from Direct to Retrograde, putting the often explosive energy of Pluto front and center after the New Moon in Taurus.

And early next week on the 26th the Sun conjuncts Uranus in Taurus.

Pluto and Uranus both being strong at the end of this week and beginning of next week, promises some important shifts, shifts that will help us to transform our consciousness more aligned with the Age of Aquarius.

Before the Storms and Astrology Forecast April 28- May 4

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on April 27, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move through the last quarter of the current lunar cycle, one that began at the Aries New Moon on April 5.

Aries New Moons signify new beginnings and start-ups. It is the time of early Spring in the Northern Hemisphere on Earth.

When the Sun moves into Aries, that signifies the first moment of Spring season at Spring Equinox, which lets us know buds are soon ready to push through branches of the trees, and flowers are getting ready to burst into bloom.

Yet we do not really enter new beginnings until the Moon catches up with the Sun to form a New Moon.

That last New Moon in Aries on April 5 started a new lunar cycle signifying new beginnings (as usual at a New Moon in Aries), but this time Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn formed a hard square to that New Moon in Aries.  That strongly suggested difficulties or blocks in the way of those new beginnings.

A day before the Libra Full Moon”climax” of that lunar cycle of April 19, the Mueller report came out and was given exclusively to the USA Attorney General who works for the President.

He held onto that report for awhile, and then he crossed out (redacted) a significant portion of that report. So the citizens of the country, who are supposed to be the stewards of that country, are not informed of much that is in the report.  In other words the full contents of that report did not go public.

Now as we move through the last quarter segment of the lunar cycle this week, we await full disclosure of the contents of that Mueller Report.

The New Moon is on Saturday May 4 at 6:45 PM EDT. It is a Taurus New Moon.

The sign Taurus in a fixed earth sign. It signifies true solidity and manifestation.

Aries “gets the ball rolling”, and directs the initial fires from the New Moon in Aries. Aries is a cardinal fire sign.

So after the Aries New Moon start up, the Taurus lunar cycle that follows grabs hold of what was begun by Aries, and then forms and shapes it.  Taurus then is motivated to hold on and make things as permanent as possible at the time.

So now whatever was started in the fires of April, is wanting to be made manifest, real, and as practical as possible.

Last week “god of the underworld” Pluto changed directions from Direct to Retrograde; and in the process made its intensity and passion quite evident.

This week, on Monday April 29, Saturn also changes from Direct to Retrograde.

The energy to be felt from Saturn contracts what it touches and is very grounding as it is the ruling planet of gravity.

And that is how it manifests sometimes, as we may feel more serious and grave as it turns.

A grave in fact is one form of Saturn, as it represents parts of life that cannot be escaped. In that context, it represents boundaries, endings, deaths, but also commitments, building and organizing, discipline, goals and accomplishments.

It is a stern teacher sometimes, a taskmaster.  It also is the hand of time, and as such represents fate, something meant to be.

As Saturn slows down to go retrograde, Pluto is still moving very slowly after it just went retrograde last week.

So both Pluto and Saturn are “in the air”, which can make things feel dark and dire.

Don’t know about you, but often lately I feel like life is being put on hold now until some big event is made manifest.

Saturn and Pluto show us powerful endings, endings that promise deep transformation and a Phoenix Rising from the ashes of the death of the old season of our lives.  (I am still planning a new class on Saturn/Pluto in late spring or early summer. For more info contact me at  My recent video and podcast (see below) include talking about that Saturn/Pluto conjunction, which will be exact on January 11 2020).

On January 10, the day before that powerful conjunction, is a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Capricorn/Cancer, making extremely close contact with that Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn the next day.  This represents a monumental turning point in our lives.

The bombing of so many churches, hotels, etc and killings of so many people in Sri Lanka, show us the horrible religious and culture wars playing out in our world.

In large part, the transition between Ages we find ourselves in,  is meant to take us away from a world and paradigm that are about “every man for himself”, in a survival of the fittest world.

Survival now is dependent on our collective consciousness evolving into a knowing of our connections, a knowing we are interdependent with one another, members of the same human family on Planet Earth.

The horrible weapons of mass destruction are an integral outgrowth of the old paradigm of dog eat dog survival of the fittest.

Those who are the fittest now have been awakened to know the connections, to know that all the dots of the stars and planets in the Universe are connected.

We can then see the meaning of our lives in this world, and we can more consciously dance with the music of the spheres of this Universe.

The old paradigm has us all separate from one another, or else all wearing the same “uniform” in order to make unity.

We do not need to make unity. It is already made. All we need to do is align with it, be involved with it, immerse ourselves in it.

Separation transforms into a more positive distinct sense of individuality for each person in the Age of Aquarius consciousness.

And the “unity” of being in the same uniform transforms into individualism finding its place, function and purpose in the greater community: Diversity within Unity.

“Fated” events are on the way, and they will help us break out of the blocks, and liberate us from the chains of programmed conformity, and free us to find our way in this new world and Age.

So this week,  hand of time Saturn slows down, stops, and then rewinds for the few months of its retrograde motion. Powerful world and personal events during the retrograde period will remind us of previous world and personal events from the past.

Then on September 18 this year, the hand of time starts up again as Saturn goes back Direct.

This week, as Saturn goes Retrograde on Monday the 29th of April, you may get to thinking about what you want to accomplish and how you want to go about planning and organizing to make that successful. Or you may feel the hand of fate, or feel serious about something you need to do, or an obligation you need to meet.

Best case scenario is feeling grounded and motivated to manifest and accomplish. Remember we now have the Sun in fixed earth Taurus, and are also more connected to the gravity of Saturn. And we are also in the last quarter of a darkening Moon.

Find ways to lighten up and not feel so heavy or depressed now. But we nevertheless do need to do some last quarter releasing and getting ready for the New Moon in Taurus Saturday May 4.

Mars in Gemini is exactly opposite Jupiter in Sagittarius next week on Sunday May 5.

That will put some spark in the New Moon in Taurus. The USA natal Mars and Trump’s natal Sun and Moon are being triggered by the Mars/Jupiter opposition.  Let’s see what that means for us all.

Till next week,

Saturn/Pluto and Astrology Forecast April 21-17

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on April 20, 2019 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are in the waning half of the lunar cycle this week,  as we move past the Full Moon in Libra last week.  This lunar cycle began on April 5 at the Aries New Moon.  Effectively, that was the beginning of Spring Season 2019. New lunar cycle begins on May 4 at the Taurus New Moon.

That April 5 New Moon in Aries was a time of important new beginnings, but at the same time Saturn and Pluto squared that New Moon in Aries and represented major blocks in the way of true new beginnings.

Saturn/Pluto will take on greater and greater importance in our personal lives and collective world lives until January 2020 when the extremely powerful conjunction of Saturn and Pluto is exact.

And one day before that conjunction there will be a major Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer that makes close opposition to that Saturn/Pluto conjunction. And Uranus, on the day of that eclipse, stops and then moves Direct.

We will be talking a lot about this event as we get closer and closer to it.  I am seriously thinking of doing a class on this subject this year sometime. Please let me know if you might be interested by writing to me at

In the class I will speak about how that will affect our world and our personal lives and the next presidential election. I will look at the USA and other countries charts as well as each individual class participant’s chart. I probably will be ready then to make a prediction on our next president.

Saturn and Pluto have an approximate 35 year cycle.

The last time they were in exact conjunction was in 1982.  (Ronald Reagan started his presidency the year before and soon thereafter, there was a failed assassination attempt on Reagan.  That failed attempt broke an ominous planetary pattern’s effect on the death of USA presidents during Jupiter/Saturn conjunctions. More on that another time).

Saturn conjunct Pluto in 1982 was only a few months after Israel invaded Lebanon.   In part this attempt seemed like an effort to destroy the lives of Palestinians then living in Lebanon.  The USA invaded Lebanon a few months after the conjunction.  200 USA Marines died and the USA then left Lebanon.   This was an important spark that ignited future major conflict with “terrorists”.

Saturn and Pluto were in exact opposition to one another in August 2001. Very soon thereafter the USA experienced the devastation of an attack on the Twin Towers in New York- 9-11. That opposition was right on the USA Ascendent/Descendant line of 11+ degrees of Sagittarius and Gemini.

The Saturn/Pluto opposition that preceded their conjunction in 1982 was in 1965/66 when the first USA troops were sent to Vietnam, effectively starting the Viet Nam war; and when Martin Luther King led the March from Selma Alabama, effectively starting the Civil Rights movement

In the previous conjunction in 1947, India and Pakistan declared independence from Britain; and the Roswell incident brought to collective human awareness the presence of extra-terrestrials on the Earth. 

So at this current Saturn/Pluto conjunction we can expect a turning point in the conflict between nuclear powers India and Pakistan (which has meaningfully been triggered this year).

We can also expect USA and Israel getting more involved with the Palestinian issue, as Trump unveils his “peace plan” in Spring/Summer 2019.  More Middle East dominance and by USA and Israel is quite likely also, as they get into more serious conflict with Iran.

We can also expect a need to go to another level in our Civil Rights movements, as we deal with white supremacists now.

And I truly believe we will also experience some grand appearance or disclosure around Extra-Terrestrials and UFO’s.

Remember also that the USA will be experiencing over the next few years its first Pluto return; while Saturn and Jupiter make conjunction with the USA natal Pluto.

And that USA natal Pluto is the symbol of USA Empire and Industrial/Military Complex.

Donald Trump’s natal Venus/Saturn conjunction in Cancer is beginning to be triggered by the transiting Saturn/Pluto conjunction, as that formation has gotten much closer to it.

His sense of security and well being and of having loyal friends will all be more and more threatened in the months ahead.

Enormous transformation over the next few years for us all as we move more surely into the Age of Aquarius.

This week, as we move through the waning half of the lunar cycle, we also experience the Sun conjunct Uranus; Pluto changing direction to Retrograde; and Saturn slowing way down as it also changes directions into Retrograde early next week on April 29.

This Monday April 22 shows us the Sun conjunct Uranus on Earth Day.   There will be an increased chance of a large earthquake this week; but also rebellious feelings of not accepting conventional rules of society will get stronger this week.

On Wednesday the 24th intense, passionate, sometimes primal Pluto (the guardian of the Underworld) changes direction to Retrograde. As it slows down in its shift, its energy is stronger than usual.

With Saturn also beginning to slow down now, it is a good time to acknowledge the Transformation we are experiencing. What in your life do you need to let go of from the “old you” and “old chapter” of your life? What are you ready to embrace of the “new you” and “new chapter” of your life?

Pluto/Saturn can be a very destructive force of that which is holding onto life beyond what is natural.  But it is also a very constructive force for building for a New Chapter of your life.

This summer’s Eclipses will also bring much more change and transformation, in anticipation of the greatest change and transformation in the winter of early 2020.

Take a good look at our world, and know how much we need transformation. Look at our current administration.  Look at the deteriorating values and corruption.  And it is not just about Trump and republicans.   Our government has been selling out to corporations and special interests for a really long time now- both parties.

We are ready and in need of big change.  The Age of Aquarius awaits us.  Love and Truth have open arms for those who want them and believe in them.

Till next week,

Getting Off the Fence, and Astrology Forecast April 16-23.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 15, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Venus is now Direct after having been retrograde since March 4th this year.

During Venus Retrograde periods we rewind our hearts to remember earlier times in our lives and to get in deeper connection with our hearts.

What did you learn during Venus Retrograde about what is in your heart?  Did you learn more about your current relationships, what state they are in, and what needs to be done with them.

This is not only meant to be about “romantic” relationships, but also perhaps about friends, family, work relationships, etc.

Did you learn more about what is in your heart and what and whom you truly love? Even if you did not think about that during the Retrograde period, it is good to begin to think and feel about that now.

Did you meet any new people during Venus Retrograde?  How do you feel in your heart about them?  Does it look like they will continue to be in your life?

Did you get more clear about current relationships and what patterns you want to transform?

Are there any relationships that ended during Venus Retrograde or that you need to think about ending now?

Did any people from the past come back into your life through dreams, strong memories, or in person?    Do those relationships have any bearing on how you look at a current relationship?

Do you feel excited about any new or revived relationships?  Do you feel sad about any current or past relationships?

Venus also has some rulership, through Taurus, of our bodies, our homes, our land and resources.

Are there any changes that happened or will soon happen around your body, home, land, or resources?

It is good to let Venus be Direct for a week or so before jumping to any relationship conclusions. Clarity starts now and will grow over the next week or so.

Of course to complicate matters Mercury is now Retrograde and will not go Direct until May 3rd.

So there is some potential mental rewind going on now, some changing of perceptions, and perhaps thinking of changing decisions or life direction.

Do your best to let the Venus Direct process naturally unfold, until you get crystal clear about the matter before taking action. Don’t force your heart or mind to get clear before it is time.

This last week world relationships were rather strained and have gotten to a very dangerous point.

The USA bombed Syria because it says Syria used chemical weapons on its own people. Use your own judgment about the veracity of that claim.

The USA also dropped the biggest bomb ever used, except for a nuclear weapon, on tunnels in Afghanistan.  That bomb also killed a hundred or so people, said to be Islamic State people.

And North Korea and the United States are macho posturing with one another now. That is a most dangerous situation.

We could be moving toward a world war, with August being a most important turning point on this issue.  Hopefully we can reverse this current trajectory.

My friend David Lonebear Sanipass has said that April 15 is an important day in the Cosmos and for our world.  All these dangerous situations are revolving around that date, which must be some kind of turning point.

He and I had a video conversation with one another today the 15th of April.  I will put that up on youtube early this coming week, and will let you know with a link on an update of this week’s blog/forecast. So come back to this week’s forecast and you will be able to access it.

I do talk about this coming August on the video.

That will be an important month with 2 eclipses, the second one being especially important.

That will be a Total Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21. Its path will be across the USA from Oregon to the Carolinas.  It is the first Total Eclipse to move entirely across the USA since June of 1918.

This eclipse in August will be almost exactly, to the degree, conjunct planetary positions of birth charts of Syria (nodes), North Korea (Saturn), and Israel (Mars). I explain more on the video and will explain more in writing closer to the event.

That Eclipse will also be conjunct Donald Trump’s natal Mars in Leo and directly opposite the USA Moon in Aquarius.

There are other aspects that month that trigger the USA Mars and Pluto.

That will be an enormous crossroads turning point time period, and a few months surrounding that eclipse should be filled with important world events, especially concentrated in August.

That should be a very intense time period energetically, and it also will bring huge waves of creative frequencies of love and truth for your transformational process.

We are all needing to clear our energy fields, minds and hearts of toxic old world energies.  It is important to let go of what has been programmed into us by an old world paradigm.

That old paradigm keeps a dense blockade against the new energies trying to pour into us.

As we clear our minds, hearts, souls and bodies of these toxins we create an opening for the new waves.

And now as you look at our world, you know it is imperative for each of us to get off the fence of straddling two worlds, and to make commitment to the New World and Age of Aquarius.

This does not mean you throw caution to the wind and throw away all your security supports.  But it does mean you let go of the fears that keep you a slave to the old world paradigm.  It does mean your allegiance is to your Self, the Universe, the Truth, and what you Love.

Energies this week will shift mid week as the Sun goes into Taurus on Wednesday April 19, Pluto goes Retrgrade on April 20, Mars goes into Gemini on April 21, and recently Direct Venus is exactly square Saturn on the 21st.

As the Sun goes into Taurus on the 19th, what was initiated during Sun in Aries will now be solidified and made manifest.

Also concentration will be more on the physical world, like your body, nature, home, money and land.

Your 5 senses will be more enlivened and it will be a good time to enjoy food, lovemaking, hot tubs, and catering to your bodily pleasures and comforts.

Earth Day happens during Taurus time of year on April 22, so our Earth home can now use more of our care and concern.

Pluto Retrograde on the 21st will intensify our emotions and energy field, bring out power struggles in some, and most importantly will be a time of potential transformation.  There may be a feeling of rebirth around this date.

Mars in Gemini gives us more motivation to learn and share information, talk, communicate and generally move faster.

Venus recently Direct square Saturn tells us about relationship endings, either ending old dysfunctional relationship patterns or seriously considering ending the relationship.

This is an important year of 2017, when we turn the corner toward fully committing to new world consciousness.

The conversation video with me and David Sanipass is here-

Till next week,


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

Exploding into New Chapter

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on April 16, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week’s forecast is shorter as I went through a medical emergency this past week and am healing now.

Mars and Pluto change directions to Retrograde on Sunday and Monday respectively.  That’s a lot of intense, provocative, on the edge energy.

There should be some death and rebirth energies at play, even if in minor ways.

Staying in the game, out of ruts of status quo habits is part of the ride now.

You are getting help to let die old ways now though it may be quite painful to do so.

Mars and Pluto together can mean some explosive emotional energies wanting to express.  Be careful not to have your buttons pushed  or to push anyone else’s buttons.  Intense arguments can result.

The political climate gets more intense and combative every day, and right now with Pluto and Mars in the energy spotlight that will intensify even more. It is much more like political warfare than community concern most of the time.

Real world concerns are rarely discussed in a deep, thoughtful way.   Candidates and media play some kind of game that gets candidates to say the same things over and over again in such overly competitive and hateful ways.

Big money interests and the system are running the show.  But “the people” are strong voices now too.  Hanging onto statu quo is hanging onto the old system of the old world.

Vote for what you believe in now, as that is where the New Age resides, not in a practical “least of two evils” approach.

On Tuesday the Sun makes its yearly advance into Taurus. Usually that brings some calmer energies, but don’t count on it this year as Venus squares focal Pluto the same day

Taurus is fixed Earth and seeks security and comfort. It is practical and down to Earth and appreciates its ability to use its’ senses to get information and enjoy life.

Venus square Pluto suggests transformation through relationship intensity.  On Friday the 22nd intensity continues as there is a Full Moon in Scorpio that day.

The Full Moon is at 1:24 AM EDT.  It suggests working out both emotional and money issues with others, as well as strong sexual energies.  Be careful not to get into tugs of war with others.

Should be a very powerful week ahead.


Transformational Astrology with Leo Knighton Tallarico webinar series will begin on Saturday June 4 at 1 PM  EDT.  At this point I am leaning toward Saturdays June 18 and June 25 at 1 PM to finish up the series. The second and third dates are not set in stone yet.   Each class will last approximately 2 hours. Fee is $120 for the complete series. I will reserve two scholarships for those truly in need who have great interest.

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 to be paid prior to the classes.
Audio recordings will be available for those who cannot make the live broadcast.
Till next week,




Letting Go of the Shore and Astrology Forecast April 12-18

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 11, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This coming week may move slowly at first, as we move into the last quarter Moon in Capricorn Saturday April 11.

The last quarter phase of the moon is by nature a time to wind down, process, integrate and prepare for new beginnings at the New Moon.

This current last quarter phase is especially important as it finishes up the lunar cycle begun at the Spring Equinox/Solar Eclipse New Moon day of March 20.  That lunar cycle then continued into a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon on April 4.

That Total Lunar Eclipse included within it Uranus and Pluto and formed a meaningful Cardinal T-square.

So now at this last quarter lunar phase, we put an end to a most powerful and transformational cycle of time.   We need time to process what has been churning in our consciousness and lives this lunar month, so we can be ready for the strong new beginnings later this week.

On Saturday April 18 at 2:57 PM EDT there will be a New Moon in Aries that will thrust us forward “ready or not”. Events will open up in our lives after this New Moon.

New Moons always signify new starts or beginnings and Aries is the perfect sign for new starts, as it is the sign that initiates springtime here in the Northern Hemisphere.

Aries thrusts forward as buds bursting through branches. It is like a baby taking its first steps, like a pioneer exploring new territory, or like an athlete or warrior fighting to survive.

So after a most important early spring, when issues in our consciousnesses and lives have been stirred and awakened, when we have been made more aware of what needs to be released and what needs to change; we are ready to get moving forward with our lives in new ways.

So use the early part of this coming week to work through issues, or to tie up loose ends, to complete, to resolve, to fix or to let go of what needs to be released.

Anything you are still holding onto- even just a little- is a sign you have not fully embraced the change.

This week Thursday April 16 Pluto changes directions from Direct to Retrograde.   That means the energy of Pluto will permeate our energy fields and consciousness.   Pluto, God of the Underworld governs the part of the transformational cycle that intensely brings issues up to the forefront of our consciousness.  It then helps us to release the old fecal matter of our attitudes and beliefs, and then also helps us to be ready for a new birth- from the ashes of the old.

As Pluto changes directions this week, you are more able to confront what needs to be confronted and to finally let go of what needs to be let go of.

For those of you who are clinging to that last bit of something, afraid to let it totally go for whatever reason, you will have help to fully release.

And as you do let go, you will open up the space for something or someone new to arrive.  Yes you may be holding on because you are OK with “the devil you know” more than unknown new territory.

But it is time now for our whole human family to leave the old polluted ponds of our consciousness and lives and to enter new but unknown waters.

In the greater world we are about to experience world conflicts larger than we have experienced in at least decades.   After the New Moon in Aries, we will be more ripe for world events that will be a direct result of what happened earlier this spring during the eclipses and Uranus/Pluto.

The Middle East will be an important catalyst for these conflicts. It is not mere coincidence that during this Spring Eclipse Season Bibi Netanyahu of Israel was re-elected;  there is a new formation for a resolution on Iran’s nuclear program; and a civil war erupted in Yemen, one that also includes the military and political agenda of several other nations.

There is an old world wide paradigm that needs to be let go of, one that encourages separation and disconnection, meaninglessness, and a dog eat dog fight for who wins at others’ expense.

This old paradigm has created weapons of mass destruction, an unfair economic system that encourages greed and despair, relationships based on lack of trust, and lives that often feel empty and alone.

We all too often look for who is better than whom, which then translates into my family or country or religion is better or worse than yours.   And of course faulty egos are built on the judgments of someone being worse or better than someone else.

These programmed judgments keep us beholden to old Gods and testaments that keep us stuck in a world that has in essence already died.

The New Gods of an Age of Aquarius show us equality, liberation, Diversity within Unity, and connections to our authentic individuality and a worldwide web of unity.  Love and Truth are re-membered as our true Universal Mother and Father.

Now as we approach this Aries New Moon we can truly be ready to move forward into new horizons of our life journeys on the way to the Age of Aquarius.  

As you are letting go of old baggage, you will become lighter and more free, more connected to your true soul self and the Universe.

And this New Moon in Aries, as it follows a most important Spring Eclipse Season and the last exact Uranus square Pluto aspect, turns on the ignition and starts driving the vehicles for real change, not just change in our imaginations or minds.

Use Pluto and the last quarter lunar cycle to release your fingernails that are still clinging onto the dock at the shore of your life.  Trust the waters of the Universe and your own innate wisdom to bring you to the right places and people at the right time.  Let go.

This week is a turning point in leaving behind the Groundhog Day repeating patterns and obsessive thoughts of your life.

The Aries New Moon this week shows us the true end of winter in our minds and souls.   We can leave the depression and gloom and open our hearts to the flowers of spring and the winds of change that will set us free.

See you next week,

Inaugurating Spring Eclipse Season 2013 and Astrology Forecast April 7-13

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The winds of change will be blowing in more strongly this week, after the New Moon in Aries Wednesday April 10 at 9:02 AM EDT.   Up to that point we will still be in the last quarter phase of the lunar cycle, a time to reflect and contemplate and get ready for new beginnings.

This New Moon in Aries will effectively be inaugurating Spring Eclipse Season 2013, as this new moon will be the last major lunation prior to the first eclipse of this spring season.   That first eclipse will be two weeks later, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Taurus/Scorpio on April 25. Then 2 more eclipses will follow:  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus on May 9, and then a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius on May 25.

So if you have not yet let go of the winter slumber in your soul, if you still cling to past hurts and wounds, it is nevertheless almost time to let go of those ghosts of the past (as much as now possible) and move forward with your life.

Aries is active, bold, and ready for a challenge.   It is not wise, with all the action and intensity of this Spring Eclipse Season, which begins with this New Moon in Aries, to sleepwalk anymore.  Let go of the emotional baggage as much as possible now, so you can be “on the edge of your seat” and ready to go.

As the New Moon is erupting in Aries, Pluto will slowing down appreciably, which puts its explosive and transformational intensity in the energetic spotlight. Pluto actually changes from Direct to Retrograde on Friday April 12.

So together, the New Moon in Aries and Pluto changing directions, gives a strong chance for conflict.   North Korea is angry, and Israel is getting ready to attack Iran.   Crisis is brewing in Korea. Crisis is also brewing in the Middle East, with Iran and Syria both being potential targets now.    Some kind of attack could very well happen around this New Moon in Aries.

And if it does not, then the next three New Moons: on May 9 (also Solar Eclipse); June 8; and July 8, are also dangerous times of potential attacks.

The USA natal Mars in May and June is being ignited by conjunction with transiting Jupiter and then Mars.   Possibilities of intensified conflicts remain high through Spring and early Summer.

Other very extraordinary world events are likely this spring and early summer also. Expect the unexpected, and be ready to adapt to the changing winds of time.

In your personal life and soul’s journey this week, with the New Moon in Aries, 5 total planets in Aries, the Pluto station, and Saturn in Scorpio inconjunct Uranus in Aries, things could begin to shake up this week.

It is best to be active and alive, and motivated.  If you have been shy and reticent, it will instead be time to assert your self, to speak your truth.   An Aries natural mantra is “I AM’.   To be true to your self and authentic being is in alignment now.   That is more important now than what people think of you or what is socially acceptable.

Of course you can see how this can cause conflict, especially so if people are used to you being always agreeable or accommodating.

This is definitely a week of opening up and being straightforward and direct.

Passions could be high by the end of the week, and it is best to stay aware of what emotions are stirring inside you, to avoid issues getting out of control.

There will be a lot of “fire” stirring in our bodies and souls this week, so staying active is good therapy.  Walking, running, swimming, and just generally being active is good now.

Life is changing now, and there can be a lot of confusion as we get taken out of our normal center.   As issues intensify this spring, remember that what is familiar to us is not necessarily what is good for us anymore.

Life is changing and we are needing to change too.   Who do you feel you need to answer to?   If you are controlled by anyone, they cannot be right for you.  These changing times are meant to help us to liberate our minds, hearts, and souls, and lead our lives as we see fit within the guidance of the Universe or God.

Of course some people can be our mentors or guides at different times in our life, but no one should be controlling you or making you do anything.  You are responsible for your own soul’s journey this lifetime, and you are setting your self up for resentment and victim consciousness if you make anyone else responsible for you, and that includes a spouse, parent, boss, or guru.

Use this Spring Eclipse Season beginning at the New Moon in Aries this week, to shed programming from society and family that keeps you stuck in limiting beliefs about your self, life, spirit, and others.

You are meant to be a free spirit, on a meaningful and sacred Soul Journey.  It is becoming more and more apparent that we cannot trust the mainstream world, its corporate rule, its governments, its media, and its institutions.  We are being forced to turn to our own truth, our own mind and heart and instinct.

We also have a relatively free internet and more and more alternative voices and choices.  More and more people are waking up and you are not alone. There are healers and guides who care and will help you to trust your own heart, mind, and soul.  So you can then find your sense of purpose, the people who are good for you, and your sacred alignment with the Universe.

We are moving together into an Aquarian Age, something that is happening quite naturally. Yet at the same time we must be proactive in its creation, believing and having faith that we are being supported in creating this new world, regardless of the fear and violence and greed that our Old World wants us to believe is Reality. It is in actuality an old paradigm on its last legs, but dangerous as it falls from its heights of hubris.
