We are now facing the first winds of change from the new Eclipse Season. The first actual eclipse this Eclipse Season is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on January 5, 2019.

Since Eclipse Season began last week at the Sagittarius New Moon, a few important world developments have intensely unfolded:

1)  The stock market is barreling downward rapidly, more significantly than many people understand

2) Mueller’s investigation has revealed information that strongly suggests Donald Trump’s presidency is in a very precarious position now.

3) Paris is experiencing  well attended rallies from its people that have gotten extremely intense in its battles with the police. These rallies were against the proposed increased gas taxes, but even after significant compromise from the government, the rallies have continued.

We can expect these issues to intensify in January, as others will capture much attention as well.  Israel is hot and close to major battles with Hamas and Hezbollah.  Russia is fanning flames of battle with Ukraine. The power of the Feminine is growing more and more every day in contrast to the old world’s paradigm and privileges.

All this shows us more evidence of a USA and Western world in the beginning stages of deep change and transformation on the road to the Age of Aquarius.

We can now see the light of that New Age beginning to shine through the darkness of these aforementioned troubles.

People are beginning to build up the muscles of “power to the people”; an unfair economic system is beginning to crumble to an eventual transformation into something more equitable; corruption of the old world ways is being challenged; and the Diversity Within Unity structure of a new Age of Aquarius world is beginning to show itself.

But I am sure you can see how this process of transformation will temporarily get darker and more intense soon.

That first eclipse on January 5 is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn 15+ degrees.  Pluto and Saturn will both be conjunct that Solar Eclipse.  That strongly suggests this Eclipse represents a big turning point in time concerning structures and institutions, old rules and regulations, responsibilities and outer world material issues.

There is a potentially destructive piece to the energy of this planetary event.  That is so because both Saturn and Pluto conjunct that Solar Eclipse.

In personal lives, there is a need around this Solar Eclipse to question your status quo; to look more closely at the rules you have been answering to; to be more in touch with your ambitions and what you want to accomplish in life.

There is a weighing of whether to keep old ways or instead to purge those old ways from your life and consciousness.

This is merely the beginning of added attention to the issues of Capricorn.  Already both Saturn and Pluto are in Capricorn for an extended stay. Then in 2020 Jupiter joins up with them as they do a threesome of conjunctions with one another.

That year brings us to both Jupiter and Saturn exactly conjunct the USA natal Pluto in its second house.  Pluto will conjunct itself (a Pluto Return) 2021-2025. 

This will be the first Pluto Return for the relatively young country of America.

With Jupiter and Saturn and Pluto all making conjunction with the USA natal Pluto over the next few years, we can expect massive change in the USA power structure of its Military/Industrial Complex.

That means the Economy and Military will be big-time transforming right before our eyes.  And all this synchronizes well with the important Jupiter/Saturn conjunction at 0+ degrees of Aquarius on the Winter Solstice December 21 date in 2020.

This symbolizes a portal opening into the Age of Aquarius. 

We do not want to view it as people did with Y2K or even more so with the end of the Mayan Calendar (even though amazingly that December 21 day is the same day predicted for 2012 as the ending of the Mayan Calendar).

We do not expect anywhere near a perfectly Aquarian World to magically appear that day.  Nevertheless there will be some obvious Aquarian Age symbols to be seen then, even as we will continue to view more intense struggling in transition between the ages.

It is best to see that time period as a “turning the corner” into the New Age, never to go back (so to speak).

It is no mere coincidence that there will be an important Presidential Election date in November 2020, preceding the Jupiter/Saturn Conjunction in Aquarius in December 2020.

Between now and then there will be many more birth pains and contractions, as we let an old age die as a new one is being born.

There are many similarities now with the stock market crash of 1929 and its subsequent economic Depression, compared to what is brewing now as Trump/Hoover preside in America.

And the similarities between Nixon/Watergate in the 70s,  with Trump/Russiagate now are even more startling.

And overall the similarities between the ’60s/70s revolution and what has been happening over the last few years now is also rather obvious.

Many full circles are playing out and Transformation is alive and well.

Later this week we enter the 2nd quarter of the lunar cycle that began at the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 7. That second quarter begins on Saturday December 15- in Pisces.

So we continue moving onward and upward toward climax on December 22 at the Full Moon in Cancer just a day after Winter Solstice 2018.

It is a great time now for positive intentions, prayers, and positive visualizations. There is more chance of actualizing what is visualized during a Sagittarius lunar cycle, especially this year with Jupiter also in Sagittarius.

Co-creation with the Universe may be especially productive now.

Mercury moves into Sagittarius this Wednesday the 12th, adding an even more conducive energy for positive visualization and affirmation.

Remember however that alignment with the Universe is essential when using positive visualization, as the relationship between you and the Universe is what creates the magic.

There is one more significant planetary movement this week.

At the beginning of the week, on Sunday December 9, Chiron shifts from Retrograde to Direct- at 28 degrees of Pisces.  

Chiron is a bridge between realities.  As such it is a significant bridge between the divine and human- between Higher Self and Ego Self.

It sits in the heavens between Saturn and Uranus, between the more traditional gods closest to Earth, and those of the more distant heavens, who were not known about until after 1781.

Saturn is representative of an Old Testament God of punishment for transgressions of not abiding by the rules (like the 10 commandments).

Uranus is representative of an awakening and liberation from the chains of old conditioning.

In between Saturn and Uranus is where Chiron always resides in the heavens.

In 1977 when it was discovered, Close Encounters of a 3rd kind and Star Wars were both showing for the first time in theaters.

The heavens were closer than ever before in our collective human consciousness.

Now as Chiron goes back Direct and soon into new day Aries, our “planet” of building bridges connects our ego self to the divine realms.

What better time to make positive visualizations that are in co-creation with the Universe?

Till next week,

Leo

Eclipse Season, Mercury going Direct, and Astrology Forecast December 2-8

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 1, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Shifting energy tides this week, as there is a New Moon in Sagittarius and Mercury going back Direct toward the end of the week.

This coming Thursday December 6 shows us Mercury going back Direct.  Then on Friday December 7 at 2:20 AM EST there is a New Moon in Sagittarius.

Even though our days are getting darker till Winter Solstice on the 21st of December, we will nevertheless symbolically feel and see more “light” as free spirited fiery Sagittarius is where the New Moon will reside.

And the light of clarity will begin to flicker again as Mercury goes back Direct. It may be a very faint light of clarity at first, yet no more than 10 days or so after it goes Direct, a fuller clarity will be revealed.

Sagittarius is like a fireplace of warmth and light as we move toward the darkness and cold of approaching winter.

Sagittarius is expansive, progressive, and always seeks to take the high road. It sees meaning in everything, and believes that solution to problems is inevitable. Hence it has faith and confidence in life and the Universe.

Its potential downfalls are in leaping before it looks, being impulsive, taking ill advised adventures, believing it is always right, and forgetting it has a body.

The Centaur’s archer shoots for the sky, forgetting it is has a horse’s body below. So Sag can sometimes be so manic in its zeal and excitement that it forgets to ground itself in the reality of the physical world.

Mercury has been Retrograde since November 16, the same day as Venus went back Direct. It started its Retrograde process on October 5.

So issues of relating and relationships have been on the front burners of our hearts and minds for a few months now.

And when Venus gets back to its original Retrograde starting point of 10+ degrees of Scorpio on December 17, our relationship lives can gain more sanity and clear direction.

So don’t go fast -forward on relationship issues at the Pearl Harbor invasion anniversary of December 7, when the New Moon in Sagittarius arrives.

And don’t go fast forward with decisions and relationship plans on December 6 when Mercury goes back Direct.

Wait till after mid December to begin being clear enough and energized enough for your life’s journey into the New Chapter to resume.

Not long afterward, on January 5, the power of transformation will drastically amp up. That is when the first of 2 eclipses will be ignited:  A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn conjunct both Saturn and Pluto.

And Eclipse Season pretty much begins after the New Moon in Sagittarius this week on December 7.   The first winds of new changes will blow in afterwards, then intensify greatly after the Solar Eclipse on January 5.

This New Moon in Sagittarius is more complicated than the usual New Moon in Sagittarius, as both Mars and Neptune- conjunct in Pisces- will square that New Moon in Sagittarius.

That Mars/Neptune conjunction in oceanic Pisces will bring in huge waves of chaotic emotions and events.

Is it not getting rather obvious that we are on the precipice of enormous change and transformation in the world?

The Trump presidency is about to face the strong grim hand of the Mueller investigation, and who knows where his presidency will go from there.  The American stock market is getting closer to crashing. And America seems to be ramping up the energies of battle against Iran, Syria, China, and Russia.

The Solar Eclipse on January 5 is in close opposition to the USA Natal Sun in Cancer.  Heavyweights Pluto and Saturn will be conjunct that New Moon and also opposite the USA natal Sun in Cancer.

The USA is so ready for powerful transformation now.

And many personal lives are also getting ready for further transformation and change.

So many people have been waking up these past couple of years, and are rejecting the old ways from an old paradigm and age.

We have been conditioned and programmed to be and act as the old world has required us. We are now breaking those chains and embracing new consciousness and ways of being.

The old world is slipping away no matter how much people cry for MAGA.  The past is in our rear view mirrors, but the future is being created now in our hearts, minds and lives.

The Universe has been showing us through its planetary cycles and symbols that we are needing to shift our ways of relating and communicating. Venus and Mercury Retrograde have been recently giving us that message and the experiences needed to make the changes. Here are some lessons people have been learning for the consciousness of the New Age:

Number 1 relationship lesson is to be truly present in our relating, not distracted by other things. That presence is the only way to truly listen to and see someone else.

Number 2 lesson is to know that empathy is necessary in making a healthy relationship of any kind. If we cannot put ourselves in the shoes of another we cannot understand their journey and perspectives. Just the process of trying to empathize brings us closer together.

Number 3 lesson is that no one is in essence superior to anyone else. Each of us is different  from one another, with equal value, and not superior or inferior.

Number 4 lesson is that everyone wants to love and be loved, no matter how they seem.

Number 5 lesson is that communication is so important to any kind of relationship. Authentically expressing our truth is not enough. We also need to be aware of how the other person “hears” what we are saying. We may need to rearrange our wording or our tone so the other person can truly take in what we mean to say.

Number 6 lesson is that it “takes two to tango” as my Mother used to say. It is not usually a matter of someone being right and someone else being wrong. And it is usually not a matter of someone being the villain perpetrator and the other an innocent victim. Creating stories in our minds like that are hard to acknowledge and release. And if not released, these stories come with us into new relationships, causing dysfunctions once again.

Each party needs to be held accountable for their part of the issue. Even if one person has cheated on the other , or one person has an addiction that has hurt the relationship; the relationship problem is always deeper than the outer circumstances would suggest.

Nevertheless, sometimes it is right to leave a relationship as the original contract has been ended or breached, and it is time to move on.

And now our contracts as individuals in the old age and paradigm has been ending. The Aquarian Age awaits us.   We are each in the process of consciousness transformation into that Age and Paradigm.

The next few months of Winter Eclipse Season 2019 is about to begin. I will have a new video coming out within the next couple of weeks.

Till next week,

Leo

Riding the Roller Coaster and Astrology Forecast November 25- December 1.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 24, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The recent Full Moon in Gemini and Venus being Retrograde are in our rear view mirrors now.

So now we are in the waning half of the lunar cycle, and we still have Mercury in Retrograde motion.

Later on in early December, on the day of the New Moon in Sagittarius, Mercury will also go Direct that day:  December 6. That day also represents the first winds of change for Eclipse Season 2019 blowing in.

So on December 6 there will be a strong feeling of moving forward.

From now till then, we are moving kinda downward and inward in anticipation and preparation for that important movement forward after the 6th.

For the last few months we have been confronting and attempting to resolve and heal various relationships and relationship patterns.

This has been and is essential, as working out these relationship patterns is helping to build the foundation of our New Chapter of life more fully and strongly.

No one wants too much heavy baggage to carry as we travel more fully into this New Chapter.

Some have gone back into childhood wounds and issues, or even past life relationship issues in order to work through the inner demons of relating that keep us stuck.

Letting go of the past relationship baggage means we need to let go of the old stories and dramas in our heads and hearts.

For instance, if you are telling yourself that nothing ever works out for you in relationships,  you need to confront that story inside yourself.

If you have told yourself that all men are selfish or that all women are conniving, for instance, then that will limit your ability to draw in men or women who are good for you.

And you know sometimes it is so difficult to let go of these stories, as we apparently have much proof from the past that will prove our point.

But this is the chicken that came before the egg, as believing something will tend to make it happen.

But regardless of which came first, the negative event or the negative belief, confronting the belief will serve you well.

Maybe a large part of the true reason no relationship has ever worked for you before is that you do not really like or respect yourself.  This can be worked on and resolved or healed sufficiently to help you let go of the story and attract better relationships.

So now, with Mercury still Retrograde, Venus not yet back to “normal”, and the lunar cycle in its darkening phase; we still are pausing and maybe rewinding our life memories in order to build healthier more functional relationships and lives.

Remember also that Jupiter is now in expansive, progressive, inspiring,  uplifting, and adventurous Sagittarius.

For the next year, while Jupiter stays in Sagittarius, you will have more ability to see things from a wider perspective, and more help in finding meaning or resolution for issues that have previously held you back.

And also remember that in January 2019 we will experience 2 more powerful eclipses, eclipses that are meant to help us break out of stuck places in our minds, hearts, and lives.

And this weekend, going into Monday/Tuesday, we will feel things opening up more as the Sun makes exact conjunction with Jupiter in Sagittarius on the 26th.

For many this will translate into desires for expansiveness, freedom, and/or travel and adventure.

Just keep in mind that Mercury is still Retrograde, so it is best not to be too impulsive or to jump to conclusions too quickly. That is one of the “side-effects” of the rising of spirit from Jupiter and Sagittarius.

Best now to process our thoughts and emotions, to find higher meaning for our lives,  and to get more in touch with what inspires us.

You can think more about final decisions, or taking action after the 6th or December, and probably not till after early January.

We enter the 4th and last quarter of the lunar cycle on Thursday the 29th, with the Moon in Virgo and Sun in Sagittarius.

We will receive a dose of sobering reality to counter any ideas or plans that are over inflated, grandiose, or in some cases just too positive.

Sag has a tendency to see the “glass as half full”, while Virgo has a tendency to see the “glass as half empty”. Truth lies somewhere in between.

On Friday the 30th, Venus in Libra will oppose Uranus in Aries. 

The days surrounding this planetary event will bring to some a breakthrough or awakening around relationships that have previously felt stuck. For others it will be a breaking away or freeing from an old relationship pattern or even liberation from a person.

Venus is no longer Retrograde, but it still has not gone back to where it started in Retrograde, which is a significant fact. It will be back to that place on December 17, completing that Venus cycle and completing the investigation and repairing of relationship.

Remember this can be a romantic relationship but also can be a family one, or friendship, or work related relationship.

In the greater world now, everything is certainly way out of healthy balance. So much is shaking up and breaking down. As we have been letting you know would happen, the stock market has been going down.

Saturn in Capricorn has been opposing the USA natal Venus and Jupiter in Cancer. And Uranus has been squaring the USA natal Pluto in Capricorn in its 2nd house (money, comfort, and security).

Eclipse Season will bring that same transiting Saturn to oppose the USA natal Sun in Cancer, while a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn will also oppose the USA Sun in Cancer.

Saturn and Capricorn are not expansive. They contract and limit. They represent gravity and hence bringing down to Earth.

This will mean more stock market downfall, though it may have a short up-lift as part of the process.

Our economy is transforming. Eventually, and hopefully there will be a good balance between capitalism and socialism as the result.

And Trump will face more slings and arrows thrown his way, especially by Mueller who heads the investigations of Trump.

And combative issues with Iran, Russia, Syria, China, and North Korea will soon expand also.

Cries for solutions for Climate Change will get louder and louder now also.

All is part of the enormous transformation of the country and world. Uncontrolled fear and panic are our only real enemies.

We are in certain movement toward the Age of Aquarius; and this current transition into a New Chapter of our collective and personal lives leads us into that New Age, which will begin with baby steps in the 2020’s, pretty much after the next presidential election.

Keep the faith, keep fighting for what you believe in, be aligned with the natural energies, frequencies and cycles of  the Universe, and keep your center and integrity during this roller coaster ride of our lives now.

Till next week,

Leo

 

 

 

Communicating and Understanding and Astrology Forecast November 18-24

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week showed us Venus passing the Retrograde baton to Mercury.  Mercury is now Retrograde until December 6, as Venus has gone back Direct.

What do Mercury and Venus have in common?  They are both about relating.

Mercury is communication, mostly mental and fast moving.  Venus is about relating, mostly from the heart.

Venus is also more indicative of the state of one’s relationships, romantic or otherwise.

Mercury is more indicative of thinking and analyzing, gaining information, and sharing the thoughts and information with others.

So with Venus going back Direct again now, we are beginning to move out of having our life spotlight on relationship issues, relationship patterns, relationship changes and healing.

Venus will not be back to where it started its Retrograde movement (10 degrees Scorpio) until mid December; so we still will need to repair, heal, find closure, or find some kind of resolution to relationships.

Last Friday Venus was going Direct on the same day as Mercury went Retrograde.  For many, the time surrounding those planetary movements were confusing,  disorienting, or difficult to understand.

Mercury will stay Retrograde until it goes back Direct on December 6, the same day as the New Moon in Sagittarius.

Remember that in the bigger picture we are moving out of an Old Chapter of our lives and into a New Chapter of our lives- on the way toward the Age of Aquarius.

With Mercury now Retrograde, we do not move forward right now. We ponder, reflect, and process.

We are best now if we do not try hard to find answers, do not jump to conclusions, do not hold onto or push rigid agendas.

With some people we are now in the process of saying goodbye, whether we consciously are aware of that or not.

With others we are in the process of seeing if it is possible to change old patterns and keep the relationship.

And in some cases we are wanting to know if a new relationship can be a part of our lives now.

As you look at the current state of relationships in the American political world,  the federal government is playing musical chairs with its employees. I have never before witnessed so much turnover in a president’s White House or Cabinet.

Mercury Retrograde promises more confusion and turnover in government, even while we still wait to see voting results from the recent Election Day.

So much is shifting and changing in our world, both collectively and personally.  It often seems like a replay of the revolutionary ’60s and ’70s, even including the comparisons between Presidents Nixon and Trump.

Nixon was the personification of what revolutionaries were fighting against.  To many, Trump now is the face of what is wrong in America.

One of the big differences between then and now is in how much more entrenched many are in the mud of our programmed world.

Yet the recent elections show a strong tide just beginning to form of people who believe we can change the world for the better.

Nixon was disgraced and left the presidency, the war in Viet Nam ended, rights for women and blacks had gotten so much stronger than before.  The world was truly beginning to transform.

Then there was a break in the revolution and evolution in the ’80s as Ronald Reagan’s administration sought to bring the country back to making “America Great again”.

And the revolution temporarily died as many people seemingly “sold out” and/or went to sleep. We were at that time likely meant to slow down and consolidate, before moving forward again.

Now over the last several years, the urge for change, transformation, revolution and evolution has picked up steam again.

And just like the ’60s and ’70s, there is a wall being built to stop the change.  Trump is the face on that wall for many.

And now as we move past 2018 soon, people are passionate about breaking down that wall.

And now there is much more likelihood  than in the ’60s, of everything crashing down in order to make space for this New Age to enter.

This wall coming down is like drawing the Tower Card of Tarot.  As it is coming down, some are feeling panic; others are feeling liberated from a confining world paradigm.

Many people will be “taking up arms” and picking sides for battle.  I suppose some are meant to do just that.

As the wall gets more cracks and holes in it from the Transformation getting more powerful, those in power will try to dominate and bully to “keep the order”.

And that could get ugly, just as it was when Jim Acosta, the newsman, was having his access to the White House taken away.

It has been subsequently given back to him by court order, but that kind of issue will get more and more difficult in coming months: to dominate those who disagree with you.

The old system will feel the need to dominate and control the citizens, forsaking the laws and principles of this country and its constitution.

Order will then be threatened by Chaos, and the wall will come down.

After Mercury goes Direct and there is a New Moon in Sagittarius on December 6, we will be in the early moments of the next Eclipse Season, which shows its first of two eclipses on January 5: a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn conjunct both Saturn and Pluto. 

And the walls came tumbling down.  Revolutionary Uranus will be changing from Retrograde to Direct on the same day.

But for now we are feeling our way through what needs to be let go and what stays. We are reflecting on our life priorities, on what gives our life meaning and where is our sense of direction and purpose now.

This week has the waxing Moon moving up toward a Full Moon in Gemini, as the Sun also moves into Sagittarius on Thursday/Friday November 22/23.

This Full Moon is exact on November 23 at 12:39 AM EST. Making this full moon more important and meaningful is the result of Jupiter being closely conjunct the Sun in Sagittarius and opposite that Moon in Gemini.

Making it even more meaningful is the fact that Mars in Pisces will be square to that Full Moon, creating a mutable T-Square.  This is a strongly influential Full Moon signature.

Complicating matters more is that Neptune’s fog will appear as Neptune moves from Retrograde to Direct on the 24th.

And of course Mercury is now and will be then Retrograde.

Sharing information and wanting to find answers are themes for this Full Moon. Communication through talking, texting, and email will be more important then usual.

There may be confusion in understanding what is being said or what is going on.  For some it will be a mental shit show, for others it may feel more mystical and otherworldly.

It has been getting more and more challenging to know what is fake news or fake information or fake pictures and stories.

As we come up on this complicated full moon with Mercury Retrograde, resist the temptation to figure it all out, or to fix it, or make it happen.

The more we push the river to flow faster, the more frustrated we will be. The more we jump to conclusions, the more we will get out of balance.

There is much emphasis on communication this week.  But it may be quite difficult to understand and make sense of everything. Too much expectation will bring too much disappointment now.

Trust and have faith in the Universe and yourself, that all is moving as it should, and that answers and meaning will appear at just the right time.

Till next week,

Leo

2011- Opening Up New Pathways of Change

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

2010 was a year that shook up the status quo in our personal lives and in the world, and took us out of our normal balance. At the same time people were holding onto the status quo- holding on for dear life. Many crises in the world and in our personal lives happened because it became more and more obvious that the old ways were breaking down and not working anymore.

But people were either unwilling or unable to make the changes that would shift us out of the dysfunctions, and out of the crisis.

It is because, in most cases, it was not time yet.

2010 contained many important astrological aspects. There was the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon Grand Cross in late June in mostly cardinal signs. There was a cardinal t-square for late July through early September. There were many important outer planet aspects like Saturn square Pluto. There was a significant Lunar Eclipse on the winter solstice.

The emphasis was on early cardinal signs. Cardinal signs represent new seasons: Aries-spring; Cancer-summer; Libra-autumn; Capricorn-winter. Cardinal signifies new beginnings, new seasons of life. The aspects of 2010 mainly affected the very early degrees of cardinal signs.

These aspects let us know that we as a human family on Earth are moving into big new seasons of our lives. Especially significant were the movements of Jupiter and Uranus into very early Aries. Jupiter expands and raises up, Uranus breaks open and liberates. Aries is spring time, when nature opens up to new life.

Jupiter and Uranus flirted for a short time in Aries in 2010, enough time to be part of the Grand Cross in late June and the cardinal t-square later in summer. But in late summer/autumn and early winter 2011 they moved back into mutable sign Pisces.

We are in transition between seasons of our lives. In the bigger sense we are in transition between a Pisces Age and an Aquarian Age. 2010 will be remembered as the year when there was the crisis of the old world being shown to not work anymore, as new energies to make new changes did not truly take hold yet.

The Gulf Oil Spill truly alerted us in a very dramatic way as to how the prevailing world structure and the Powers that Be are not setting the health of the earth and its inhabitants as a high priority. Drilling for oil is considered more important than the environment, the earth, the Earth’s creatures, human life, and the future of those we leave this world to. We have known for a couple of generations, at least, that we need alternative energy sources, but nothing has been done. We need to make big changes in alignment with an Aquarian Age, and they are coming.

Look at the economy in 2010. The so-called recession began in 2008. It was expected to be short-lived. For banks and big corporations the recession is made much better by the bailouts and easings and tax cuts. For regular human beings, however, there is much unemployment and underemployment and inflated prices for basic needs like oil and gas and food.

There is much panic by the Powers that Be because they know that if lending does not open up, if employment does not increase, if people do not start spending more, then the economy will crash.

These Powers do not know what to do- except to rerun old ways of fixing the economy- tax cuts, bailouts, etc. They do not delve deeper to find ways to fundamentally transform a system of “haves and have nots”- to one more equitable for all on Earth. They do not fundamentally transform an economic system that is about printing paper and shuffling numbers, far removed from real life.

There is crisis because the old ways do not work and there are not new solutions on the near horizon. But they will come.

In the Middle East, there was a big push to bring peace and a two state solution to the Israelis and Palestinians. There was virtually no movement at all, no new ideas. But this place is a tinder-box, especially because tensions with Iran and Turkey and Lebanon are not being solved either. Afghanistan and Iraq occupations are continuing indefinitely.

The cultural tensions between Islamic and Judeo-Christan cultures is tighter than ever. Fears of terrorism are causing panic in Airport Security with new scanning machines and pat-downs.

North and South Korea had their biggest confrontation with one another this autumn and intensity is still high.

WikiLeaks openened up new leaks in the structure of the Old Paradigm. And the Old World has ferociously attacked its leader Julian Assange as a result.

The old world is fighting ruthlessly to keep control and to keep the old and dying structures alive.

They are nevertheless breaking down over time. Yet the new breakthroughs have not totally opened up- for new ways and new solutions.

The Old Paradigm hung on tightly in 2010, but the strains were pushing huge leaks in its structure. There was great intensity and pressure building in 2010. In 2011 the dike opens up and more new world energies pour in.

In 2011 Jupiter and Uranus move all the way into Aries and do not go back into Pisces. Jupiter moves into Aries in late January and stays until early June, when it moves forward into Taurus. Uranus moves into Aries in mid March 2011 and stays until 2019. This Uranus in Aries will square Pluto from 2012-2016, intensifying transformational movement.

Uranus in Aries will usher in the Aquarian Age in no uncertain terms. In December 2020 Saturn conjuncts Aquarius at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, and the Aquarian Age is symbolically begun.

2011will bring big spikes of energy into the New World. Old Ways will no longer be able to hold on for dear life. They will break down and new ideas and ways will develop out of the chaos, as we are forced to find them.

On July 1 2011 there will be a turning point event. It will be a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer that is a Grand Cross in Cardinal signs: Sun in Cancer 10 degrees; Moon and Pluto in Capricorn, 10 degrees and seven degrees respectively; Saturn in Libra 11 degrees; Uranus in Aries 5 degrees. No planets are in mutable signs in this grand cross- as Saturn was in Virgo last year at the 2010 grand cross. All planets are solidly in Cardinal signs, none at the cusp like in 2010. It is very rare that we are having so many grand cross aligments attached to eclsipses. This is why it is evident that huge change is upon us.

The intense standstill crisis of 2010 will be over and 2011 will inexorably bring stronger forces of the Aquarian Age. That does not mean there will no resistance from status quo forces. There will be resistance more than ever, as they sense their old world ending. But the new world will be so opened and alive; new ideas and new ways flooding into our existence; chaotic and creative energies moving us fast -forward.

In personal lives in 2010, I witnessed so many crises. In my counseling practice I saw so many people in very intense crisis, more than I have ever seen before- in any given year- over the last 25 years.

I , more than anything else, have been helping people to let go of old tapes, old programming, old patterns that are dysfunctional and toxic. These old ways have been breaking down, as their old lives have been breaking down. Yet it is noteworthy how desperately people hang onto what is obviously no longer working and in many situations not even around anymore. People even cling to relationships that have ended, careers that are no longer viable.

There is much fear to enter new realms, not believing they will be any better.

Seasons end in our lives, just as seasons end on the Earth. It is not about better or worse, but about a new season. Once a person lets themselves sink into a new season or phase of their lives, everything feels better. It is the fighting to keep things as they were that cause so much pain and suffering.

When you sink into your new phase or chapter of your life, with acceptance, then you will be better able to know what to do, what direction to move in, what decisions to make When you sink in, into this new season in your life, you will be OK, all will feel right.

Does this mean you will not ever hurt again after losing someone you love?- No of course you will still feel the loss sometimes, the horrible pain. But you will begin to lose your panic, your anxiety, your lack of comfort.

Just as we grieve our loss of summer, as it ends and moves into autumn, we learn to dress differently, to change our activities and attitudes. Before long, we have adjusted and in many cases are enjoying the new season.

So get ready for 2011. The crisis of being between seasons will end. The doors will open up for you. Those doors that would not open for you in 2010, causing such frustration because the old doors were locked behind you, will open up.

Early in 2011, things will begin to open up, as there is a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on January 4. This eclipse new moon is opposite the USA natal Sun from it sbirth on July 4, 1776. Troubles for the USA will be increasing, threatening their sense of strength and identity.

In late January Jupiter moves into early Aries, triggering the point of the cardinal t-square from the summer of 2010. Big events could be erupting in our world as a result.

Then in mid March Uranus enters early Aries again, and stays there all year long, again triggering the same place in the zodiac and more world events will be erupting.

Late spring and early summer will see three eclipses in a row, a relatively rare occurrence, with the climax being the Solar Eclipse Grand Cross in Cancer on July 1. Spring and summer 2011 will be powerful with many big events that will be shaking the foundations of the old paradigm and age.

Like Wikileaks, there will be more and more attacks on the world structure through new web sites that will specialize in leaks of government and corporate secrets.

There will also be computer attacks on web sites that control energy distribution, water supplies, and other public services. This new type of “terrorist” attack will get more and more popular over the next several years. It is a lethal attack on the structures of a country.

The United States protects Israel even when it does wrong. China protects North Korea even when it does wrong. The UN is an inferior world body that does not adequately defend fairness, equality and justice in the world. In 2011 there will be calls to transform or end the UN.

The rivalry between the USA and China for world domination will take us dangerously to the cusp of world war in 2011. The Middle East, Korea, and the economy will be the flash points of ignition for this conflict. Many new convoys will come to break the seige of Israel over Gaza. Lebanon will go back into civil war, being taken over by Hezbollah, which will go to war again with Israel.

The economy of the USA will continue to suffer in 2011.

All of the above problems will be further breaking down the current world structure in 2011, and we will be transforming the prevailing world paradigm and creating many new world ideas and structures in their place.

New ideas for alternative energy will be booming in 2011, as will the construction of these new energy sources.

New groups wil be forming all over the world to bring world peace and a new world structure, one that values and honors the Earth, promotes sharing the world resources and wealth, and begins to develop a world of equality, liberation for all peoples and Diversity in Unity.

All this will be happening at the same time as the breakdown of the old military/economic strucure of the World.

New alien and UFO visitations will be witnessed in 2011, and some will be such that we will all know that we are being visited from other realms of the Universe. Government leaks will reveal that governments have long known of the existence of UFOs and alien beings.

New communities will be forming all over the USA and world, communities that are self sustaining and aligned with new Aquarian values. Also local communities will strengthen, as mass transportation and commerce will be crippled by a falling economy and other world events.

Some of the above predicted events may not occur until 2012 or 2013, but the movement toward their manifestation will be evident in 2011.

Much love and many blessings during this holiday season

Take care,

Ride the Tide, and Astrology Forecast November 28-December 4

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 27, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are on the outskirts of a very intense and transformative time period.    We  have let you know in previous writings that the time period between late October 2010 through January 2011 was an important time period, especially for world events that will shake up and change our lives.   

The most powerful part of that time period is December 5 2010 through January 19 2011. 

That time period begins on December 5 with a fiery New Moon in Sagittarius, on the same day that Uranus goes direct. Rebellious spirits are ignited.  It ends at a Full Moon on January 19 that brings to climax the energies initiated at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on January 4 2011, an eclipse that is in opposition to the natal USA Sun from its birthchart of July 4 1776.  Forces in conflict with the USA are stoked and made active.

In the middle of the time period is an extremely significant Lunar Eclipse Full Moon  at 29+ degrees of Sagittarius/Gemini on the Winter Solstice on December 21 2010.  This combination of aspects provides us with a Universal signature for the winter season.

The last eclipse that happened on the day of a solstice or equinox was in June 2001, when there was a solar eclipse on the day of the summer solstice. Before that summer ended there was an attack on the twin towers in New York, on September 11.

There are so many more important aspects swirling around this time also.    The summer of 2010 has passed, but the aspects from that summer have not been triggered yet.    They will from December 7-15 when Mars goes through early Capricorn, touching off the Grand Cross and cardinal t-square and Saturn square Pluto from that 2010 summer.    In late January through early February Jupiter will travel through early Aries, triggering the same aspects again.   Trigger aspects tend to touch off events that the original aspects set in motion.

To know what may happen, it is therefore important to look at what has been brewing in the world this year leading up to the important time period we are now moving through.

For one the economy has continued to be shaky, clouded by the fact that recently the stock market has been doing fairly well.   It seems that the movement of the economy has been in neutral, everyone waiting to see if the direction will move up or down. The coming eclipses and trigger times should give us more clarity about the direction of the economy.

Korea has also been in intense volatility also. Earlier this year North Korea blew up a South Korean submarine and killed almost 50 sailors.  And most ominous, this past week North and South Korea fired at eack other, as North Korea fired across at an island belonging to South Korea.  It has been reported that 4 people were killed as a result, two who were civilians.   

This event has brought the ongoing conflict between North and South Korea to its most dangerous place since the end of the fighting in the Korean War in 1953.

And of course this battle brings China into the picture as it borders Korea and has North Korea as an ally country.   Since China is also in conflict recently with the USA economically, this exacerbates tensions between them.   China is a growing power in the world, and will not take a subordinate role to the USA.  The coming weeks during the “hot” astrological period ahead look very dangerous there.

The Middle East has also been boiling hot this year. In late spring a Turkish flotilla was travelling to the Gaza strip to bring supplies and food  to an impoverished people there. Israel felt threatened and attacked one of the boats in the flotilla and killed 9 Turkish citizens.  This move has pushed Turkey firmly away from “friendship” with Israel and closer in relationship to Iran and Iranian cohort Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians is going nowhere, Iran is not complying with western countries’ demands to abandon its nuclear program, and all is coming to a climax during the “hot” astrological period ahead, especially concerning Iran and Hezbollah in Lebanon.

So the Middle East, Korea, and the economy will be in the spotlight during the astrologically hot period.   There has also been much focus on terrorism recently also, with increased security at airports and intelligence networks information about increased threats to European nations.

We can expect the strong possibility that big event(s) will change our lives during the coming couple of months, mostly through January 19, but potentially for the entire winter.

It is important now, in our personal lives, to be with change, to be flexible.   True evolution is about adaptation to changing conditions.  Do not hang on to anything too tightly, non attachment is most helpful now. And that includes attachment to “how it has always been”.   For instance look at the values of our homes now, as we were conditioned to believe those values would always go up, not down as they have been going.   

The paradigm is changing rapidly, yet the guardians of the old world are fighting fiercely to keep the status quo, to keep us thinking “inside the box”.   The guardians of the old paradigm will continue to fight for old ways, like keeping our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters oppressed and ostracized.  This is all transforming and before long we will be all together in a “Diversity in Unity and Equality” world.   Move with it and let go of the old paradigm.

The guardians of the old paradigm and old age want to keep us programmed to believe there are peoples out there who are our enemies, like now North Korea and Iran and perhaps soon China.  Remember we are moving to a multipolar world, where all are known as one family on the Earth, many races and faces, but all one. Do not get pulled into hatred by the media, which has mainly become a tool of the Powers that Be of the old paradigm and age.

We have all been programmed more than we acknowledge, and we need to return to free minds, hearts, souls and spirits. From that place we find Truth, and from that place we learn acceptance for all our greater family.

As we learn to put ourselves into the shoes of those who are from different cultures, we learn to live together as one community here on Earth.

Do not let fear or hatred grab you too tightly now, and that includes your experiences in your personal life.  Challenges we face now are tests to grow and transform, to heal old wounds that have kept our hearts hardened or closed. 

Week Ahead

This week is a waning last quarter moon, moving closer to a powerful lunar cycle begun on December 5 at the Sagittarius New Moon, as Uranus goes Direct also.  Before and around this New Moon are strong aspects to the charts of North and South Korea and Israel.  Also the charts of Obama and the USA will be heavily aspected over the next couple of weeks, as Mars moves over the early degrees of cardinal sign Capricorn.

Mars square Jupiter early this week brings spirits high and for some out of control.  Move with spirit, but keep yourself grounded. Late in the week, Mars squares Uranus to break open more active energies before the New Moon on December 5.   Conflicts can break open this week, but so can free spirits wanting to leave old and confining ways and patterns. 

It is getting more and more difficult to hold back the rising  tides of change.  Getting to be time to ride the tide.

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn and Astrology Forecast for January 10-16

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on January 9, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The second of two eclipses in a row happens this week, on Friday January 15 at 2:11 AM on the USA east coast.  On the west coast the eclipse falls on January 14 at 11:11 PM.    The Capricorn/Cancer Full Moon Lunar Eclipse from New Year’s Eve Day 2009 and this week’s Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn bring a common theme:   Security issues.

Cancer and Capricorn both are connected to security and stability.  They are the archetypal “Mom and Dad” energies, although in the contemporary world, those gender roles are mixed.

Cancer provides inner security through nurturing, care, and unconditional acceptance.    Capricorn provides outer security by meeting the demands of the world through accomplishment, work, planning and discipline.  Cancer builds safety through making a comfortable and nourishing home base.  Capricorn gives safety through building success in the world and gaining the rewards of money, etc. that provide security.

In the mainstream world the eclipses have brought with them the recent failed terrorist attacks, which have shaken many people’s sense of inner and outer security.    New scanners are being put in airports around the world.  Governments are contemplating more such  moves toward greater security.  The cable news shows talk incessantly now about the CIA and its failures, Homeland Security and its failures, the President and his failures.  Many are getting freaked out about the recent incidents, especially the Christmas Day bombing attempt near Detroit.

These concerns now about our safety and security are deeper and broader than just the recent eclipses.  Pluto’s recent movement into Capricorn a couple years ago, which will last for 15 years, is about transforming the structures and institutions of our world.  Since this is within the broader context of an Aquarian Age and 2012, we can expect massive changes to our way of life, our economy, and our relations with the rest of the world over the next several years.

The last few weeks, which have been under the influence of the eclipses, have brought increased feelings of insecurity for many.  Many ar enow less sure about the direction of their life.   Jobs, money, relationships seem less stable and reliable.

Perhaps it is time to let go more of our attachments, addictions, co-dependencies, and that which we are clinging too hard to.   It is time to liberate our minds, hearts, and souls.  It is time to recapture our free spirits, no matter what age we are.   For those of you beyond your teens and ’20s, you know how easy it is to get so much into security and safety and material concerns.   It is easy to get bogged down into every day” same-old, same-old”, and lose your flexibility for change.

But change is coming, it accelerates in 2010, and it will behoove each of us to let go, to release what is ready to be released, and to move on to a new phase of our lives.

The Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn this Friday January 14/15 will get us moving forward again.    For many direction will get more clear this week or next as Mercury goes direct on January 15, adding to the forward direction of the New Moon that day.  But for some pieces of the puzzle will be left to solve in regards to our overall life direction and desires for our future as Mars will still be Retrograde until March 10.

But for now, with the Solar Eclipse New Moon, and Mercury going direct this week, we will have some forward movement and greater clarity.    The fog of our life path will begin to clear.  Remember that at eclipses energies and emotions intensify, and we usually get taken out of our normal balance.

Since this New Moon Eclipse is in Capricorn, we get more of a sense, however, of “getting our life together”.   We start to make plans, or life brings us seemingly fated events that show us what we must let go of, and what direction we need to now take.

If you have your Sun in Capricorn, especially if you are born in mid January you are most affected by this eclipse.   If you were born with Sun in Cancer, and were born in mid July you are most affected by this eclipse.    In fact if you have any planets in the middle degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn you are very affected by this eclipse.     You will have more of a tendency to have your security issues challenged and opened for change.

This coming week, the week of January 10 through January 16, life may feel more serious.   This is especially so from mid week through the end of the week.

This is so because Saturn, the planet that “rules” Capricorn, slows down and changes directions on Wednesday the 13th, less than two days before the Capricorn New Moon Eclipse.   It is time to get down to business, to do what needs to be done, to work hard and more efficiently. 

Saturn is Old Man Time, a reminder that life is limited by the passing of time on this Earth plane of existence.  Things end and die, time marches on.  We sometimes need to let go of people, jobs,old times of our life.   Saying goodbye is always difficult.    But new horizons await us, always one season of life passes into another season of life.

And of course Thursday/Friday is the New Moon in Capricorn.  It is a turning point time of life.  Everything may not be totally clear and laid out yet, but a shift is happening.  And it is a powerful shift, with all implications not known until several months ahead.

In the greater mainstream world, the USA is having military/economic concerns heat up again.   The power of the USA is being asserted and/or challenged now.     In 1991, on January 15, just like now in 2010, there was a powerful Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn at the exact same 25 degrees.  That is near the USA Pluto in its natal chart’s second house.  On that day in 1991 Iraq and Saddam Hussein were attacked by the USA and its allies.  That community of nations that gathered together for the attack were called the New World Order.   This was mainly a combination of western world allies, Europe and the USA.

I do not expect such a dramatic force of attack again this time as the aspects to this eclipse are not the same as last time. In 1991 Saturn was conjunct the Eclipse, which brought more of fated grave energy to the formation.     But issues related to the military/industrial empire of western nations, led by the USA, will again be in the spotlight.   What are the threats to this Empire now?  It is from a difficult economy, Al Queda, Iran and North Korea, Yemen, Palestine, and potentially Pakistan.

If you saw the movie Avatar, you know they were referencing this global corporate, military empire of the USA and New World Order as the “bad guys” destroying the natural and spiritual world of the Na’vi native peoples.

This movie is a consciouness raising movie for mainstream America and the world, and lets us know we are moving toward a world beyond Empires that rule all our lives and the natural world and Earth environment.

We are on the cusp of great change, and 2010 will open up and clear the path for greater progress into this New World.

“See” you next week,
