Standing Up Strong and Astrology Forecast November 12-18

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 11, 2017 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we move through the last quarter of the lunar cycle that began on October 19 at the New Moon in Libra.

Last quarter moon phases are times of coming down, releasing, letting go, and gathering ourselves for the next new moon, in this case on Saturday November 18 at 6:42 AM EST.

As the Moon wanes, it slowly loses its light as it comes closer and closer to that new moon in darkness.

Along with the days getting darker and colder, the mood may get darker too this week.  Staying aware of that fact can help not letting oneself to be engulfed by fear or gloominess. Feel your natural feelings, but do not allow them to dominate you.

Add also the fact that the Sun is continuing in Scorpio, and so it is natural now to feel the yin side of life, to know what is real, to feel more deeply, to appreciate the hurt people go through sometimes.

So much has changed over the last year. We are in a new reality since the presidential election last year. And much has also shifted since Eclipse Season, which was highlighted by the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo in August.

You can use this last quarter lunar cycle to get your bearings, to ground and center yourself, to allow yourself to feel whatever your feelings are naturally feeling, as long as you do not drown in them.

How has your own life changed over the last year? Have you experienced much change and transformation since then?  What more changes do you anticipate?  Do you need to speak up about something, as so many are doing now in the world.

And this need will only grow at and after the New Moon in Scorpio on November 18.

While we watch the Trump dramas and the volatility of world relations now, sometimes teetering on dangerous; we are also experiencing great transformation beyond old toxic ways.

Power abusers and sexual predators are being called out as we are all being made aware how prevalent such abuse has been and is still. And now the world will change as a result of the increased awareness and stigma of being an abuser.

We are becoming more and more able to change this world into one more aligned with the higher values of the Age of Aquarius.

And part of that change is knowing that No one is inherently better than anyone else, and deserving more privilege and selfish gain.

Age of Aquarius is about equality and diversity within unity. There is no royalty, no superior/inferior,  no privilege for being born in a certain family or culture.

And no has the right, no matter what position in life they hold, to abuse their power in order to take from others what they do not want to willingly give.

This challenging the power order and hierarchy will continue and will get more intense.

Much of the volatility in our world will soon become explosions that will eventually clear the air of arrogance, and domination over others.

In the game created in the old paradigm, there are some who have privilege and power and deserve more.  In the old paradigm in America, celebrity and wealth and privilege make one better, with more power and deserving of more than others.

Only in that kind of paradigm can someone like Trump become president. Only in that kind of paradigm can slavery and sex trafficking be reality.

Trump and people like Cosby, Weinstein, and Spacey are given this power and privilege in the old paradigm.  And they are all now staring us in our faces because the Universe is showing us in stark terms the kind of world we are in, and one we need to change.

And some of you are thinking that this is the way it has always been and will always be.  And I tell you I know a place, a dimension, a reality where that does not exist.

And that dimension with its energy and consciousness is wanting to materialize in the Age of Aquarius.

Its light is trying to pour into our consciousness, which is why each of us is challenged to break down the blockages and release old traumas and programming so this light can come in without impediment.

And we are sitting in a time when it feels painful when we are controlled more by the old world, and lighter as we awaken and heal within the new world.

And we will naturally go back and forth until we arrive on the other side of the bridge of transformation.

It is like the breakup of an old dysfunctional relationship.  There is fear of loss, deep sense of insecurity, guilt, blame,  anger, and concern that no better relationship will ever come to such a failure.  That is the pull of your old world.

But there is also a sense of hope for a better life,  a sense of liberation, and an opening of one’s heart again.

And that new life, truly a new life, is only possible if old belief systems, old programming, and old mental tapes are released and transformed at a deep level so new light, love, and truth can pour in. And with it healthier relationships.

Often times however, the process is ugly at first, explosive and filled with rage and fear.

But that is necessary sometimes as discomfort, chaos, and unsettled emotions push us to awaken to the truth and make the changes necessary.

And the system of our old Establishment will continue to be challenged more and more by world events and human rebellion.  And as it breaks down, we each need to release old beliefs and security systems in our minds in order to transform our lives and transform the culture and world into the new Paradigm and Age.

This week experience the darkening Moon and mood, then get ready for a powerful New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th. Then on the 19th Mars will make an explosive square to Pluto.

This is a turning point time period, a time to stoke up again the powers of deep transformation.

Let your self be more empowered and speak your truth.   No one can put themselves up as better than you, and tell you what to be or do.

But you enable them if you do not speak up or tell someone who can help, as silence tells abusers or bully people that they can continue their dominance and abuse.

In time the whole idea of perpetrator and victim, predator and prey within the human condition will be diminished and greatly released.  You are not a predator or victim, not a predator or prey, and that old way of believing enables bullies and sexual predators to continue to exist.

Without a victim there is no perpetrator.  So identifying with being a victim keeps you locked up and chained in an old reality.

Yes you may have been victimized but you are not a victim.

Solar Eclipse New Moon in Gemini and Astrology Forecast for May 29- June 3

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , on May 28, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We are on the cusp of the first of 3 eclipses, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Gemini on June 1.   Experiences are calling us to transform and change rather quickly now.    People and/or situations seem to push us now to the edge of our issues.   In an accelerated way, we can now move through old stuck places in our psyches and lives.

So many people now are already dancing in the eclipse rhythms.   They are meeting new people who are dramatically shifting their lives, or losing or starting new adventures or jobs or home situations, going to new schools, falling fast in love.   We are starting a New Season of our lives.  The last of the three eclipses, on July 1, a Solar Eclipse New Moon Cardinal Grand Cross, truly symbolizes the movement into a new season.

Last summer we experienced a Grand Cross Lunar Eclipse and a Cardinal t-square of planets in the very early degrees of the cardinal signs Aries, Libra, and Capricorn.  There is a cardinal t-square in the same signs now, and will graduate to a Grand Cross when the New Moon Eclipse falls in Cancer on July 1.

Cardinal signs are the first signs of new seasons in nature every year, and symbolically that major eclipse forming a cardinal grand cross symbolically shows us our human family is now moving into a major New Season, a new major passage and era of living on Earth. This all neatly synchronizes with the movement into a New Aquarian Age and a New World according to the Mayan Calendar.

The commonly held position of transition into the New World by the Mayan Calendar is December 21 2012.   But Carl Calleman, a very respected Mayan researcher believes the old calendar ends on October 28, 2011.   Interestingly, a recently discovered comet Elenin will make its closest contact with Earth on October 17 2011.

Comets have always been associated with major passages for humanity on Planet Earth, and its closeness to Earth around the time Carl Calleman believes is at the changing of Ages is interesting at least.

So while we realize how ridiculous it was for the preacher last week to predict Rapture on May 21 2011, it is important to note that many signs are pointing to great transformational change now.   Expect this year to bring dramatic change to both our personal lives and to the greater world we all live in together.

Some are believing that a major UFO incident is on the way, and perhaps that will happen soon. Otheres are believing that at the turn of ages we all are gaining greater psychic abilities and that we will gain greater ability to communicate with one another telepathically.

No matter what exactly happens, we are truly going through a major passage together, entering a new era, a new paradigm and age.

And you in your personal life are doing the same thing.  Old patterns and energies, old attitudes and beliefs are wanting to die now. There is more of a sense of urgency to do so.  This is happening because the speed of evolution is spiking faster now, most especially during this current eclipse season, which is in effect now and will last into the summer.

If your heart has taken you to love someone or something now, it is for a reason, but maybe not the reason you want it to be. Live in the moment as much as possible with it, without going too far into the future.  Be present for your issues, and for your inner voice to be heard.   Do your best to not be swept up out of your authentic soul self.  Do your best to recognize it when you are automatically reacting and overreacting in old ways, according to old patterns. These old ways keep you out of authentic ways of being and relating.

You may be pushed during this eclipse season out of your normal balance and habits. This is to give you the opportunity to recognize and then to release or transform those old beliefs and patterns that keep you and your life stuck.   You are meant to instead connect to your deeper soul, to your free mind and heart, to your authentic self.   Your return there will connect you to the Universe, will align you to your best self, will bring you the guidance you need now or at least to the people who can give you the needed guidance now.

For some this will be a painful process. For others this will be a big awakening and a fast move through your issues.  For all this is an initiation into a new season and era for your life, which is connected to the evolution of our human family here on Earth.

The old ways are not working anymore. They are destroying our Earth, its creatures, the balance of Nature, our connections to our souls and to one another.  We are ripe and ready for the changes now, and this is why we are experiencing these challenges, these breakdowns of old ways, these breakthoughs into the new.

Let your heart lead the way, but keep your head as its trusted consultant. Our hearts have been so wounded that they are prone to keep bringing us back to situations and people that remind us of our traumas and disappointments. So listen to your head’s version of events to make sure you are on the right track.

And watch for the signs that come from the Universe to light your way. But remember that signs and synchronicities do not tell us what to do. They tell us to pay special attention, and then to go through the process of finding out what the signs and synchronicities mean for us.

We are now in the Eclipse season, and the first one is this coming Wednesday June 1 at 5:03 PM Eastern Daylight time. It is at 11+ degrees of Gemini.  It is a Solar Eclipse New Moon, and as such a time of powerful new beginnings. It is especially a  time of new beginnings around learning and education, around communication and relationship, around using your head, around receiving and delivering messages.  Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini.

Later in the week, Neptune will go retrograde and bring us to a need to surrender more to our inner world, to the unseen world of soul and spirit. It may bring with it some spacy and confusing energies also.

See you next week,

Saturn not a Demon and Astrology Forecast for January 23-29.

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on January 22, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have entered the last two weeks of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn on January 4.   The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon was on the Winter Solstice on December 21 2010.   This current eclipse season, an especially powerful one, is slowly coming to an end.

People have been taken out of their “normal” rhythms and patterns and have been dealing with issues in a most intense manner, in many cases.    Now for many clarity, direction, and resolution are apparently beginning to form.   The week ahead may bring a challenge to that newfound definition for some. For others it may bring a feeling of finality or limitation that may be difficult to handle.

The last quarter Moon, in Scorpio, is on Wednesday January 26.  It intiates the last week of the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon on January 4.   Saturn changes direction and goes retrograde on January 26 also. It is time to “get down”, and deal with issues that one cannot avoid anymore.

Whenever a planet changes directions, from Direct to Retrograde or from Retrograde to Direct, it slows down and its “energy” permeates the energy field.

Saturn is serious and prompts us to “get down to business”.    It alerts us to the fact that sometimes we have no choices.  Sometimes it feels like fate or merely that “it is time”.    Saturn was also called Kronos, which brought us the word chronological.  Saturn makes everything seem more real and sometimes heavy or grave, as it rules gravity.   We get more in touch with our duties and responsibilities.

At its best it helps us to feel grounded, to get more disciplined and ordered.  It helps us to take responsibility for our self and our life.  It helps us to create better boundaries and to limit our emotions if they are out of control.

So this week ahead is a turning point on these type of issues.  There will be more of a sense of definitiveness, of doing what needs to be done because it is time.

Saturn also rules Karma, which has a bad name for some.   Actually karma (and Saturn) is also about reward for a job well done.  It is about reaping what one has sown, whether good or bad. Many people have good experiences with Saturn for this reason.

Many “free spirits” tend to run away from Saturn because they cannot take its firm hand of limitation. Saturn is the rules and regulations of life that can feel like a limiting of heart and creativity.  It feels like death to them or imprisonment.    But Saturn is an important tool for all of us.   It helps us to build and accomplish and be successful.     If a free spirit learns to harness their wildness, they can meet their dreams.   Saturn tells us what the “real world” is like, whether we like it or not.  This knowing of the real world and its rules, fair or not, can help us to do what is needed to make those dreams come true.

Of course as we move now more fully into an Aquarian Age, the rules are changing and during the transition we have more ability to choose and create.   But Saturn will not die or be abolished. We will always need to work within certain parameters, always need to have certain boundaries and rules to live by.  Even as we merge more into Oneness, we need to develop an integrity and individual definition, and respect for others’ boundaries.

So use this coming week to make better friends with Saturn.   Saturn is not another way of saying Satan.  It is not our demon.  As you make friends with it, it will help you to build what you envision and give you the discipline and order to do so.

Expansive Jupiter is also important this week, as it leaves oceanic and soulful Pisces for straightforward and direct Aries. Jupiter in Aries suggests it is time to move forward, to assert your self, to empower your self, to ignite new fires inside your self, to get ready for new ventures and greater action in your life.

But with Saturn so strong this week, and while we are still in winter here in the northern hemisphere, for most it is time to merely rev up your engine with new ideas for the future, but to hold off on pushing them forward.   Saturn, however, can help you to make a plan, in some cases a long term plan and ways to organize and implement those plans.  After Uranus also goes into Aries in mid March, the energies of action and change will get even stronger.

In the greater world this week, as Jupiter goes into Aries and Saturn changes directions, while we are still in the last vestiges of our current “eclipse season”, watch the news closely.

In so doing you may get a better sense of what is collectively coming our way.    Watch especially the economic news as Saturn going retrograde may show us what is “fated”.

The Middle East is heating up to a boiling point now. Watch especially what happens in Lebanon, as it is in conflict now between having allegiance to Iran and Syria or having allegiance to the western world.   Events may be close to erupting there.

And talks between Iran and the world powers broke down this week, with no agreements. It is looking more and more like there is an inevitable clash ahead between Iran and its allies and the western world and Israel.  This conflict, when it breaks out, will start all the dominoes in the world to fall.  The transition between Ages will intensify.  Gates will open up and chaotic creativity will pour through.

Revolutionary energies gained more strength ths week as Tunisian people overthrew their oppressive goverment, and Algerian people are now protesting to gain more freedoms in their country.

Saturn’s turning and Jupiter moving into Aries this week will show more evidence of what is to come.

The winter has more suprises in store for us, as the Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice of 2010 gave us a signature of a most intense and changeable winter season.   Expect the unexpected and for more big world events on the way.

See you next week,

Ophiuchus- who? Astrology Forecast for January 16-22

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , on January 15, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week I wrote that “Birds are falling from the sky, an omen of grave seriousness now.  The old world is toxic and its old corruption needs to end.  Ugly world events are on the way.”   And of course right after I wrote that the horrible tragedy in Tucson happened.

 Those who regularly read this blog know that I wrote last year- that between late October 2010 and mid January 2011 big event(s) would happen that would greatly shake up our world.  That period of time falls within what has been the Eclipse Season that took in the Lunar Eclipse on December 21 and the Solar Eclipse on January 4.   The so-called Eclipse Season was meant to put structure to the time of greatest influence of those eclipses.  Perhaps the Tuscon tragedy is the last big event to happen during the Eclipse Season.

Nevertheless, since that first lunar eclipse occurred on the same day as the Winter Solstice, I believe we need to be aware that more big events may still be on the way this winter.  These big events are like huge storms that are blowing into our lives, storms that wreak destruction and bring us through a new passage forward in our lives.  These storms are transformational events that prompt us to question our ways, and look for new ways to be.

The old world we are leaving is so toxic and corrupt.  People have been arguing the merits of various reasons why the Tucson shooting that killed 6 people and almost killed Congresswoman Giffords happened.  

 Some believe that the collective political dialogue is so hateful that it spawns such violence as was seen in Tucson.  They point especially to the fact Sarah Palin talks about “don’t retreat, reload”,  or how she put crosshairs over USA congressional districts that she wanted to defeat in the recent elections, including Giffords’ district. 

 Others have been criticizing lax gun laws that make it easy for unstable people to get guns and commit these crimes.   Others blame society’s ills in general for creating messed-up people who do crazy things.  

And others merely say that there will always be such “bad” people who we must guard against by stricter laws.

I’m sure there is some truth in each of those arguments, but I believe the greater truth is that we are moving at a now accelerated speed into an Aquarian Age.   We are now in transition between an old Pisces Age begun around the time of the birth of Christ, and a new Aquarian Age we are on the cusp of now.

The technological Age is a big part of the Aquarian Age, and is so Aquarian in character.   We are forming webs of information and communication linking us together all over the world.   This is moving us beyond a more feeling oriented Pisces Age and into the greater detachment of an Aquarian Age.  We have less personal and intimate connections.   We are getting more conscious socially, as social networks like Facebook and Twitter get more and more popular.  Our smart phones and computers also bring us more technological interactions with one another.  With texting and email and skype, etc, we actually make more connections with one another, but are losing the intimacy and romance in many cases.

Much anxiety can erupt in people as a result of the technological revolution.  Though we have less privacy, we ironically also have greater feelings of aloneness and separation.

We feel connected to others in an all too often detached and superficial way.  Deep nurturing emotional connection is less common.   Much emotional connection, like in families, is without healthy boundaries and dysfunctional.  We are moving away from the nuclear family and are beginning to form new kinds of families, families that are not just about blood connections.   

We need to learn in this Aquarian Age transition to better balance our new social networks and technological world with nature, emotions, and spirituality.

The old world that is run by global corporate and big military and big government is dying and will be replaced “by the people”. People will return more to community and local resources, while in greater network with other local communities.   

There are many more big storms coming over the next few years, storms that will break down the old power structures that have been running our lives in such toxic and corrupt ways.    As they break down, the new human communities and networks will grow stronger, with new and healthier ways to steward our Earth and all its creatures in Oneness.


Do not be concerned about the new sign and be worried about how your astrological sign has now been changed to something new.   This promotion of a new sign and changing signs has been created by non-astrologers. Making Pluto a non-planet was also not accepted by astrologers.  Some like Rachel Madow, who had a segment on it this week on her TV show, do not even believe in astrology.  Western astrology is rooted in the the connection to the equinoxes and solstices and the “cutting of the pie” into 12 signs from those points.  It is not literally lined up with the constellations.  YOUR SIGN HAS NOT CHANGED!!!

This Week

On Wednesday January 19 this week there is a Full Moon in Capricorn/Cancer at 29 degrees at4:21 PM EST.   It is trine Uranus and Jupiter in Pisces, which bring more potentially chaotic energy.  It is a strong Full Moon.  This is partially so because of the aforementioned aspects but also because of the fact that this is the full Moon that brings to climax the Solar Eclipse New Moon from January 4.  Events that began to form around that new moon complete themselves now.   Be aware of new world events that could very well occur around the time of this full moon.

In your own life it is time to better balance inner and outer concerns, emotional and domestic concerns with logical and career concerns.  Emotional issues may threaten whatever boundaries and agendas you may have built.

Next Saturday Jupiter leaves Pisces where it has been for a year for the fresh and new energies of Aries.  We will examine that movement more next week.

see you then,

Falling from the Sky and Astrology Forecast for January 9-15

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on January 8, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The dust is clearing on a most intense Eclipse season.   We experienced a rare Lunar Eclipse on the winter solstice 2010, and then a strong Solar Eclipse New Moon on January 4-  just after the new year of 2011 began.  As is usual for eclipses, people were shaken up out of their normal rhythms.   Breakdowns occurred for some, new breakthroughs happened for some also.   At the least most recognized that they cannot do their life like they have been accustomed to do it.   The old ways are not working anymore, or have gotten rather stale, or have kept them is less than healthy and functional states of being.

It is time to move on.  And in 2011 moving on into new territory will happen whether you are ready or not. 2010 set the table of change.   2011 the main meal arrives.  

This winter may be challenging for some, as they grieve over times past, over people who have left or are leaving our lives.   The Capricorn New Moon Solar Eclipse of January 4 sets in motion our knowing that we must change our lives, let go of the past, and now begin to plan a new season of our life story.

Capricorn is about the building and implementing of the plan.  One knows one needs to have discipline, organization, and commitment in order to make the plan work. One needs to let go of of old habits and addictions that preclude being able to make the plan work.  It is meaningful that New Year’s always begins during Capricorn time of year, as we make resolutions to change our ways.   

And this year the Capricorn energy is stronger than usual, as the New Moon in Capricorn this year was a Solar Eclipse also. And Solar Eclipses are always new moons, as Lunar Eclipses are always full moons.  Solar Eclipses are much more powerful new moons.  So the Capricorn message is much more powerful this year than usual.  It is time to “get down to business”, to “get it together”, to get your life to work better.

It is interesting, though tragic, that around the Capricorn New Moon Eclipse of January 4 it was reported that thousands of birds were falling from the sky in Louisiana, Arkansas, and Sweden. Most were blackbirds and crow-like birds.   Also it was reported that millions of fish were swept on shore dead in places around the world.   Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn, the planet of seriousness, limitation and Gravity.

The Earth creatures that are least affected by gravity are birds and secondly fish.   And the Saturn ruled Capricorn Solar Eclipse was occurring as the birds and fish were reported dying.

To me the message is not to fly too high now, so to speak.  Keep your proverbial feet on the ground.   Make grounded and well thought out plans.   If you get inspired, make those inspirations practical and workable, not just “pie in the sky”.

In February, after Jupiter goes back into Aries and the next lunar cycle begins, then it will be time to put some wings back on again.  Change will be big this year 2011, but for now it is time to “lay low” and make the practical plan. It is also time to get the body of your life in order.  Build healthy structure, build healthy emotional boundaries.  Keep energies and people that bring toxicity and old dysfunctional patterns into your life- out of your life for now.    

In the greater world 2010 brought shakeups of the old ways, and challenges for change, but the flood of real change has not come in yet. It will in 2011 and 2012. 

As triggers are ignited from the Cardinal t-square and Grand Cross of 2010, big events will occur.  Potentially huge war almost broke out during the eclipse season, between North and South Korea.  This is still a most unstable situation, as is the Middle East and the world economy.      As Jupiter enters the early signs of cardinal Aries in late January and early February, there is possibility of world eruptions.   As Uranus enters early Aries in late March and April, more triggers occur and more potential for volcanic eruptions of change.

It is time in 2011 to commit your self to a new season for your life story.  Break the chains that bind you, let go and let yourself expand and grow and evolve.  The structures of our old world will be breaking apart and new energies and ideas will be blasting through our minds and lives.

Pain will be proportionate to how much you are holding on to the old ways. 

But for now, take it slow, stay low, make the plans.  Get your body and life in order.   Stay aligned with your true and deeper soul self. Stay aligned with the Universe and its natural cycles and seasons.  As the bigger changes arrive you will “be in tune”.

Birds are falling from the sky, an omen of grave seriousness now.  The old world is toxic and its old corruption needs to end.  Ugly world events are on the way.

 The new world is fresh and alive and waiting in the wings, excuse the pun. An Aquarian Age is upon us.

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,

Cardinal T-Square and Astrology Forecast for August 1- August 7

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

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This week we finish up the lunar cycle begun at the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on July 11.    Monday August 2 begins the last quarter of that lunar cycle.   The next new moon, which starts the next lunar cycle, is on August 9 in Leo.  

These last few days of this lunar cycle may be quite intense, especially with a Jupiter square Pluto aspect early this week.   They will give more shakes and bumps on our voyage through the Eclipses and Grand Cross and Cardinal T-square of the summer of 2010.    We have been taken out of our old comfort zones.  We are being initiated into new chapters of our life drama, both on a personal level and in the greater world.    Turning points and crossroads are being faced by many.  

The second half of summer begins this week, and we are now in the middle of a T square of planets in the very early degrees of cardinal signs.  The Cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.   A Grand Cross would give us planets in all four of those signs.    A  T-square has planets in three of those signs, in this case Aries (Jupiter and Uranus), Libra (Mars and Saturn), and Capricorn (Pluto).  

This kind of aspect builds tension because it is pulling in 3 different directions.  The Libra planets want peace and civility; the Aries planets want action and forward movement; Pluto in Capricorn wants restructuring out of old forms and patterns. The fact they are all in early Cardinal signs shows we are pushing forward into new seasons of our lives, as cardinal signs are the signs of the first months of the seasons. 

Late on August 6 into early August 7, when the Moon is in early Cancer, there will a few hours of a full Grand Cross, not just a t-square.  The t-square stays in effect into September.

In the greater world,  the likelihood of important events will increase.   Though the big astrological aspects will pass this autumn, the possibility of big events will stay.    Oftentimes the astrological aspects shake us out of our comfort zones and get us ready for the events which follow.  Autumn 2010 may have even more dramatic events than summer 2010.

The biggest world event this year so far has been the blow up of the oil rig in the gulf and the subsequent huge oil spill.  Now that the spill has been temporarily plugged, government officials and media voices have been telling us the spill is not so bad now for our oceans and wildlife anymore.   They say very little oil is now being detected on the surface of the waters.   This has been a most horrible devastation for our Earth, its creaures and the balance of nature. 

The denial, however, is typical of our world order.  It always tries to go back to “normal” and not make any real changes. It is like a dysfunctional family that has a huge blowout, and everyone tears each other apart, saying and doing things that are so hurtful, mean, and destructive.   Then after the storm blows over they go back to same-old, same-old.  They push everything under the rug, acting like nothing ever happened.  Yet all the resentments stay inside, everyone trusts each other less and less, relationships are harmed forever.  There is never any real effort to repair the damage, to heal the wounds, to transform and change old patterns that have closed hearts and souls to one another.

And in our greater world, will the oil drilling now stop, after such a horrible disaster?  No.   Will the efforts to find alternative energy sources intensify? Likely no.   But yes this old world paradigm, this Old World Order, will face more and more disasters.

We know this because we know in our own personal lives we get “hit over the head” by life when we get off track from our authentic self and our soul’s path.   It is a warning. We can make change or not, our choice. But if we don’t we get another whack, maybe through an illness, maybe through losing a relationship or a job.   We can then choose to make changes, get on track or not.  The whacks get bigger, maybe not right away, but eventually when the planets come around again.

We can now choose, as the planetary action is intense, to jump on the train of our soul’s path, to bring more sanity and connections into our lives, connections to our authentic self and soul, to each other, and to the magic of the Universe.   We can choose to be a part of an Aquarian Age growing stronger every day.

Or we can choose to jump on the train of the dramas of an old world dying.   We can watch in awe at the spectacles of celebrity and privilege, fame and wealth.    We can cringe in fear or rise in hatred for the enemies who we need to kill in order to keep our nation or religion’s team number one.   We can play the game we have been taught by our society, or we can connect to being a real human being on the Earth in a greater community of beings in the Universe.

If you do choose to be that real human being, get ready to help heal our human family and Earth and transform our consciousness and ways into a new Aquarian Age.

Likely this year the economy will suffer more, and war cries will yell out against Iran.   Do not be sucked into the fear or the hatred for the enemy.  It will suck the soul out of you, will take you away from your life path.

Life can still be beautiful, loving, compassionate, and fair, if that is the frequency you choose to live in.  The people and circumstances you need will follow.   The Aquarian Age is now inside ourselves, not a perfect world, still with problems, but still also with love and hope and kindness.

Astrology teaches that you are the center of your world, of your life dramas. As you transform your consciousness and life, all transforms around you.  Not all at once, as the Universe needs to know you are committed to this soul journey, but slowly and eventually.  

Use the shifts of 2010 to make the changes you need to make to keep you in your soul and its true life journey.

See you next week,

Leo Knighton Tallarico
