Getting Ready for Greater Transformation and Astrology Forecast April 26- May 2

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

This last week brought us a New Moon in Taurus on Earth Day.  Taurus is a fixed Earth sign, and the Planet Earth is pretty fixed as our home.  And Earth Day has represented through the years our desires to clean up and heal this planet and the environment surrounding it.  

Taurus as fixed Earth is also our ability to earth, to make real, to build resources and security, and to manifest what has been previously only an idea or inspiration.

So this week we carry the New Moon in Taurus’ recent movements forward with some momentum, as the lunar cycle is in its waxing half, moving up to the Full Moon.

That Full Moon will be next week on May 7.  It will be a powerful Full Moon in Scorpio, which is also the Wesak Full Moon, associated with Buddha and Buddhism.

Speaking of power, the weekend that begins this week, Saturday April 25 and Sunday April 26, is intense and transformational.   Pluto changes direction from Direct to Retrograde on the 25th, and the Sun conjuncts Uranus on the 26th.

This could be a very intense and difficult time period for some, as emotions will tend to break open and rise to the surface.

Too add to the theme of change being in the air this weekend, Mercury squares both Pluto and Jupiter on the 25th.

When a planet changes directions, for a couple days surrounding that movement, that planet’s energy and meaning are more alive than usual.

Pluto is intensity, passion, and power, and as such moves deeply within our consciousness, bringing to the surface what has been previously held in abeyance.

And as that Pluto makes square to Mercury (along with Jupiter), it moves strongly through our minds, helping us to release old ego stories.

As it works to release those old stories, it is opening our minds to the potential of new ways and a new chapter of our lives.

This time in isolation has been a great time for inner reflection and connection with our inner world.  And Pluto can help the process of looking at deeper issues we have been previously distracted away from.

Then overnight from the 25th into the 26th, the Sun makes conjunction with Uranus in Taurus- waking us up from any dependencies or “comfort zones” that have been holding us back.

That aspect may also help us to connect with new comforts, pleasures, money making ideas, or manifesting what we are now ready for.

Those waves of transformation will likely still be experienced on Monday.

Tuesday when Mercury, having Monday just entered Taurus, makes tight square with Saturn in Aquarius, we may begin to get more realistic, or more aware of potential limits.

On Thursday the 30th, the Sun in Taurus makes square to the Moon in Leo, giving us a turn into the 2nd quarter of the Lunar Cycle.

Our heart will spontaneously be wanting to come alive, and as such may be bored by any needs we have had to stay in our Covid “comfort” zones.

In the world there is a desire now to be more alive and get back out into life and work.

It will be very important, being aware of this desire now, to find a balance between being safe (Taurus) and creatively alive (Leo).

Many will want to keep playing it safe with Covid, while others are wanting to open up and experience more and be ready to get back to work and make money.

Both desires will need to be honored and worked out somehow. Each person will need a different balance than do others.

But of course we all also need a sense of responsibility to the collective, to others who are more susceptible to serious illness and death. This is now a difficult turning point for our human family handling this pandemic.

And in late May the winds of change will begin to flow in  at the beginning of another Eclipse Season. Then in June/July comes the intensification of  metaphorical storm clouds (maybe actual ones also), accompanied by big shifts in the world.

In June/July there are 3 eclipses, not the usual 2:  June 5 Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius; June 21 Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer on Summer Solstice; and July 4/5 another Lunar Eclipse Full Moon, this time in Capricorn.

Additionally and importantly, Jupiter will make another exact conjunction with Pluto at the end of June also- again at 24+ degrees of Capricorn ( same degree of conjunction as in early April.

This time period, which is the next Eclipse Season since the one in January that opened the gates for what would become the Corona Virus that has shaken up all of our lives all over the world, will initiate the next wave of change and transformation.

The Presidential Election process will go through some new twists and turns as a result of this new Eclipse Season.  There will also be important turning points with our relationship with Covid 19 then.   And countries will tend to test one another during their vulnerabilities from the Virus.   Spotlight potentially on China, North Korea, Iran, Israel, Russia, Ukraine, Pakistan, India.

At the same time, during this new and longer Eclipse Season, positive transformations will open up as they did after the last Eclipse Season.

The sequestration from the Covid at the last Eclipse Season has helped us to turn inward, to shift priorities, to be more aware of how this world is in big trouble and needs to transform (from before Covid).

The world’s economic system is transforming now and will never be the same; America’s reputation is greatly suffering as it has lost connection with its core values; oil is a dying energy resource; we need to join people all over the world in unity as we are all members of the same Human Family.

And in personal lives people are getting more in touch with their true wants and needs; more aware of their need to be authentic and live authentic lives; more aware of the need to have better relationships; more aware of a need to have genuine purpose for their lives; more aware of the need to be a member of community, community that reflects a need to be with others of common purpose.

The Universe has called us together for these world challenges.  We are on the ride together into the Age of Aquarius; an Age of Equality between nations, cultures, and people; of Diversity within Unity; an Age of having Love and Truth light our human evolution into its higher destiny; and creating a more solid bridge between “Heaven and Earth”, between Soul and Body.

Please join me on Saturday May 9 at 10:30 AM Pacific Daylight Time for a Webinar on Zoom.  This Webinar will help give you a Bigger Picture of our world and human challenges now; an astrological viewpoint of America, Trump, Biden, Cuomo, Warren, Israel, China, North Korea, other leaders and countries, and the Stock Exchange; a deeper view of our human condition and evolution into the New Human and Age; a look at the potential for other worldly Visitations; and of course some ideas for how to understand and navigate the transformation of our individual consciousnesses and lives that we now face.

Saturn/Pluto and Astrology Forecast April 21-17

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

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

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

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

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

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

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

Saturn and Pluto have an approximate 35 year cycle.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Till next week,

Time to Move Forward and Astrology Forecast April 15-21.

Posted in astrology forecast, Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 14, 2018 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Yod “finger of god” formation with the USA Mars was exact Saturday morning April 14 at 5:58 AM EDT when Jupiter was sextile with Pluto.

8 or 9 hours prior to that formation France, USA, and Britain starting dropping bombs on Syria.   As we have stated before, that Yod formation brings with it a turning point for military affairs in the USA.

The finger has pointed toward military invasion and that does not bode well for peace in the Middle East.

The Middle East is where the first known civilizations were born: in Sumeria, Egypt, Babylonia.

And that  is where we need the healing now on our way to the New Communities of the Age of Aquarius.

We must purge ourselves of old “eye for an eye” “dog eat dog” mentality. That old paradigm has brought us Weapons of Mass Destruction including chemical weapons, but also nuclear weapons, which wiped out at least 200,000 Japanese at the end of WWII.

It is a Paradigm which must end, and that paradigm is not embodied by just one man or one country.  And using violence to stop violence is so ridiculous it does not need explanation.

So now after this Yod, we have another powerful turning point on Sunday April 15.  That day there is a New Moon in Aries which is closely conjunct Uranus and more widely square Pluto in Capricorn. 

This a launching pad for the New Chapter of life, propelling us much further forward over land we will not see again.

We have been releasing old stories and tapes in our minds and souls, and said releasing has been super deep and rapid at times.

Now we move forward whether we are ready or not.  Do you want to truly move into a new world for your consciousness and self, or do you want to be held back by heavy baggage that will stop you from moving on.

That does mean every shred of baggage must be released now, but it does mean making a strong and deep commitment to the New Chapter with no turning back to be in the “old normal” of the Old Chapter.

You can no longer go back to “normal”.

In the greater world collective we are all a part of, changes have been happening so rapidly it is difficult to hold steady sometimes.  And that will not stop any time soon.

We are in the middle of great world transformation, and we cannot make anything great again, like America,  as it was in the past.

We are creating a New America and New World, and we are getting clear messages now of what needs to end and be released.

And of course there is much resistance from the guardians of the old world, people who have held privilege in that old paradigm.  Those days are gone now, but many hold on with life support systems that barely keep their souls alive.

So the Portal opens on April 15 with the New Moon in Aries in aspect to 2 powerful transformational planets: Uranus and Pluto. That New Moon is at 9:57 PM EDT

But even earlier on the 15th, at 5:21 AM EDT, Mercury turns toward more clarity as it goes Direct again.

So this weekend is a weekend of transition, an important transition.

We begin to leave the darkness and enter more light at the Moon’s sliver of light on the 16th or 17th.  And Mercury will not get back to speed and full clarity for at least another week.

But you can feel the shift now, and yet many events will not show for another month or two.

Then in July/August another Eclipse Season and accelerated transformation again.

But this week is the shift with the Grand Opening on Sunday.

Then on the 17th/18th, Saturn changes directions from Direct to Retrograde.  Its gravitational pull will be stronger, and we should experience the signs that show us there is no room for evasion or escape.  The path is ready for us to walk down.

Saturn can feel like fate when it is strong as it is now, and there may be a sense that some things are meant to happen now, and some things are meant to end now.

But since Saturn is starting to go retrograde now, until September 6 when it goes back Direct, some endings may take awhile to be sure of.  

Around the same time on the 18th, the Sun will conjunct Uranus exactly, triggering the forward movement of the New Moon in Aries that just happened.

Sun conjunct Uranus breaks us out of whatever boxes we are stuck in and liberates us.

It shows rapid change for moving forward.   So we have the seemingly mixed messages of a Saturn stop sign and a Uranus go sign.

So use Saturn to stop whatever or whoever keeps you chained to the past and the baggage of old ways.  The most likely culprit of old ways is inside your own self.

And at the same time take a leap off the Uranus bridge into greater freedom and new horizons.  It is time to be true to your authentic self and move forward with utmost integrity.

On the 19th another shift occurs as the Sun moves into fixed earth Taurus for a month.  Some of the recent intensity will rest into a more solid place.

You can begin to make more practical sense of what has been happening.  You can also begin to manifest what has previously just been an idea.  New beginnings can be more stabilized and strongly set in a real way.

Most importantly now, do not be mesmerized into believing the old stories of monster dictators and evil countries with weapons of mass destruction who must be destroyed to save the world. Remember Saddam and Iraq?

This is what has been used against the masses for centuries to keep the herd under  control by contrived patriotism.

Also be aware of ‘wag the dog” calls for patriotism, so the herd can be distracted from the sins of their leaders. As the Mueller investigation intensifies, distractions are more likely.

It is certainly not uncommon for leaders to distract through conflicts and wars.  This has happened time and again through the centuries.

If you are drawn into those old dramas, it will keep you out of the new paradigm of love and truth that is setting us free.

Do your best not to despair no matter what happens.  All happening with greater meaning as we are shifting and transforming our consciousness into the New Paradigm.

Fear will try to keep you chained in the old consciousness and old ways. Love is knowing all is happening for a reason, and to challenge us to get more certain with our new self and new world.

The transformational process often takes us through dark passages before we awake in the renewed light.  Faith will help your passage, as it will keep even a faint night light on during our dark nights of the soul.

And now the light of a new day dawns with the New Moon in Aries. Yes there are still dark shadow clouds of old ways that may be hovering, but we are nevertheless now ready to move forward!!

Till next week,

Being True to Your Self and Destiny and Astrology Forecast April 10-16

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , on April 9, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We passed through the doorway into a new era at the Aries New Moon.    For some the process has not been easy.

Often when we move into something new there is an Initiation period that puts “devils at our doorway”.

Our minds go over the past, regrets and grief, doubts and guilt.  Nevertheless it is truly time to move forward now, so letting go of these “demons” in our mind is essential.

But with Mars going Retrograde on April 17 and Mercury going Retrograde on April 28 you may not feel fully activated and clear about your new world until June- or in some cases July.

For some the outer practical world has changed little, but they can feel the changes inside. You may be involved in the same habits as usual, but you do not feel safe and secure inside yourself.   Reaching inside for “normal” is not easy anymore, because the old normal from the old era is gone.  And there is no “new normal” that can be felt yet.

So we may have to push through the discomfort now and move forward anyway.

With this change into a new era there are feelings of getting older. And look around at how the kids from yesterday are adults now. Millenials are having an important imprint on our world in big ways now.

They are the first young generation in some time that feels they can change the world.

They vote for Bernie Sanders because they believe the economic structure that rules this world is unfair.  They believe their future is rocky as a result of the inequities.

And this current election process for President of the USA is so different from anything in my lifetime.  It truly makes me feel like the world is not what it used to be.

And if you feel that the world looks worse not better, remember that during this evolutionary process there will be energies that seek to slow us down and stay in the past.

The conflict now is beween energies of change and transformation, which are generally more chaotic, against efforts to dominate and control and keep the status quo.

That process is about to intensify.  And as security is threatened ( through riots, terror attacks, etc.), more and more people will welcome attempts to bring order to the world.

And that is when there is a big problem. A dramatic comparison is the ’30s and ’40s when fascism got stronger in the face of a more chaotic world.

But remember that fascism was defeated and progress forward ensued.   Now as European cultures are feeling invaded more and more, it is understandble how they want to put a lid on immigration.  They feel their culture is being compromised. And they fear terrorism from new arrivals.

Yet progress forward into a new world means we learn to mix with other cultures and ways of living-  Diversity within Unity. It promises to be a difficult transition- here in the USA also.

This coming week starts with Sun in Aries conjunct Uranus late Saturday the 9th.   This aspect will bring strong desire to break outside the box of our minds and lives.

There is a feeling to be liberated from that which holds us back.  This aspect also suggests that we stand up tall and empowered in our authentic truth.  It is time to stand up for your self and be true to your Self.

Being true to oneself is not always appreciated in society or families that want everyone to wear the same uniform.  One is made to feel selfish or self centered.

But if you are made a certain way by the Godforce, it is heretical in effect to not honor your Self.  Your destiny is dependent on you honoring your authentic Self, as you have a purpose beyond being selfless and unselfish.    Keeping you away from your Self is a way to control you and make you another robot in society.

Later this week, actually at the beginning of next week, Mars goes from Direct to Retrograde in Sagittarius.  The date of the beginning of Mars Retrograde is April 17.  It will stay Retrograde until June 29.

Mars Retrograde is a time to get more deeply in touch with one’s will and one’s assertiveness.

You will be able to take that time while Mars is Retrograde to dig deep inside your self to know what it is you want now, what you desire for your life.

You may seriously question what you have chosen in the past and the direction you have chosen now.

But remember that during Mars Retrograde it is not a good time to make any rash decisions or to do anything impulsive.

Even if it feels totally right to change directions, please wait until Mars goes back Direct before changing course. I have seen so many times that when it goes back Direct the person goes back to what they originally intended. The purpose of the questioning was to have a surety.  Yet I have also seen people truly become sure their original choice was wrong after Mars goes back direct again.  So just wait if you can.

We will discuss more about Mars Retrograde next week.

Below is more information on the webinar I am offering:

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

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