This week we come down from the strong Cardinal Grand Cross Full Moon in Cancer last Thursday January 12.

But only one “leg” of the Grand Cross has left the powerful configuration, that being the Full Moon in Cancer.  The 3 legs that remain make a Cardinal T-square formation which has us pulled in 3 different directions instead of 4.

It is comprised of Jupiter in Libra, Pluto in Capricorn, and Uranus in Aries.  It will continue to be effective until late April, when the”orb” or distance between the planets gets too wide to be pertinent.

This T-square, still a very important configuration, will affect everyone to some degree; but its greatest impression will be with people who have planets in the middle to late degrees of cardinal signs:  Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.

This emphasis on cardinal signs, which are the signs at the beginnings of seasons, at the Solstices and Equinoxes, suggests we are moving into important times of New Beginnings.

Uranus in Aries suggests we are breaking out of an old way of being and empowering ourselves; Jupiter in Libra suggests a higher value of fairness and being relational; Pluto in Capricorn suggests we are transforming out of old soul-dead structures, and in the process of creating new ones.

Since those planetary placements form a T-square, what each placement represents is at odds with each other placement.

So it may be quite difficult to be free of old ways in a self empowering manner (Uranus in Aries), while at the same time able to be in meaningful relationship (Jupiter in Libra).  Or it may be difficult to break down and release old security structures (Pluto in Capricorn) and still be fair minded and balanced (Jupiter in Libra).

We are being pulled in different directions and it is challenging to stay centered.  It is best not to try too hard, and instead surrender to the process with trust in yourself and the Universe.

Also now all planets are going Direct until February 6, when Jupiter goes retrograde.  All planets Direct is a somewhat rare occurrence, and it also suggests we are moving forward into new beginnings.

On a global scale the Inauguration of Donald Trump is happening on January 20, and on the next day there is a Million Woman March on Washington DC as well as on state capitols and cities around the country.

This new era shows us a huge division between different cultures and ways of life in the USA and also in the greater world.

I believe we are about to go through a big storm that will shake things up in a big way over the next few years.

This storm will clear the way for the Age of Aquarius. For humanity it will separate the “wheat from the chaff” in an evolutionary process.

And it will open portals for more light to shine through so we can have a world of Diversity within Unity, a world run by Love and Truth, and a knowing the Universe is a place inside each of us that has all the dots connected in greater meaning.

We were born to be alive at this important time in human evolution on Planet Earth.  So find your role and place in it, and trust the Soul’s process.

Later this coming week there are planetary shifts that show us a turning point.

On Thursday January 19 the Sun moves into Aquarius, while the 4th quarter Moon in Scorpio squares it.

This signifies a movement into a greater darkening of the light of the Moon.  The Sun is shining in Aquarius while the Moon is showing us more darkness in Scorpio.

On the same day Mars in Pisces will be met with difficulty from Saturn in Sagittarius. Mars in Pisces seeks unity in deeper consciousness, and that will be inhibited by Saturn showing us what is happening in reality.

These events on the 19th open the way for the Inauguration on the 20th and the Million Woman March on the 21st.  These events represent the Sun square the Moon for sure, but also Mars square Saturn as unity is blocked by our current reality.

When this 4th Quarter phase of the lunar cycle is completed, we will experience a New Moon in Aquarius on January 27.

That New Moon in Aquarius will show us the first winds blowing in from the coming eclipses in February.

So we can consider Eclipse Season beginning on January 27, setting us up for the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo on February 10 and the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Pisces on February 26.

Much will be shaken up during this coming Eclipse Season.  Change and transformation will be pushing through the blocks and impediments in our consciousness and belief systems.

This force will crack open what is stuck, so we can change our lives according to our Soul’s intentions.

In the greater world, the new Trump administration will experience during Eclipse Season  its first great challenges to what it intends to do.

And each of us will need to adjust to this New Chapter in our personal and global lives.

The Trump administration facing powerful backlash to its intentions is an integral part of this New Global Chapter of our lives.

And each of us will be challenged in this New Chapter to stay on our spiritual paths with our deeper values.

We cannot let the increasing darkness in world affairs sweep us into fear and hatred.

We must keep our trust in our deeper souls and the Universe, and our belief we are evolving into an Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Spring Equinox 2011 and Astrology Forecast for March 20-26

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , on March 19, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The Pisces/Virgo Full Moon shines extra large and bright today.    It is totally full at 2:10 PM EDT.  Tomorrow the Sun moves into Aries, as we celebrate the Spring Equinox at 7:21 PM EDT.   Quite meaningfully, this spring Sun will be conjunct Uranus, as Uranus has recently entered Aries, where it will stay for approximately 7 years.  Additionally, Uranus has entered a “trigger zone”.  This is so because Uranus in now in the early degrees of cardinal sign Aries, triggering the Cardinal T-square formation from the last summer of 2010.   When Jupiter entered that zone in late January and early February, we experienced the eruption of revolutionary movements in Egypt. 

Now the fires of war and revolution are stoked in Libya, as the UN has authorized a no-fly zone fighting force against Gaddafi and the ruling regime there.  Later today or tomorrow the UN authorized forces will begin their campaign.

The ruler of Aries is Mars, the ancient god of war.  Uranus is a planet of change, awakening and revolution. It was discovered in 1781, a date in between the American and French revolutions.  Revolution is now brewing strongly in many countries in the greater Middle East.   War has also broken out there in Libya.

There is a stark contrast now between the Pisces/Virgo Full Moon and the entry of the Sun into Aries Spring Equinox conjunct Uranus. 

The Pisces/Virgo Full Moon is one of the gentlest and most healing of all Full Moons. It helps us to let go and release the struggles of a passing winter.  We touch once more, before the tide turns into spring, deep feelings, perhaps for some of sadness or grief.

Yet the passage into spring, especially now as it conjuncts Uranus, brings the inner stirrings of new energies, of awakening from winter’s slumber, of renewal.  It brings forth our more active energies, ready to interact with others and the world.

This passing winter was long and filled with tons of snow and a lot of illness here in New England.   We faced our inner demons and watched the world go more crazy.   The tragedy in Japan has touched so many.    The Earthquake and Tsunami were bad enough, and so the damage to nuclear facilities and resulting radioactivity was way over the top of misery for the Japanese.  

And that reminded many of the horrors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, where the USA dropped nuclear bombs.   Over 200,000 people were killed then.  

We need to pause as a human family now, and realize what danger nuclear power has brought to us.  The nuclear plants are dangerous enough, and the nuclear weapons are suicidal.

We are entering a most powerful spring and summer now.  I knew the winter would be filled with big events and transformational energy, in large part because of the Lunar Eclipse on the winter solstice.  

And now the signature of the spring season has the Sun conjunct Uranus in Aries.  And there will be 2 eclipses in spring, a Solar Eclipse on June 1 and a Lunar Eclipse on June 15.  This will be followed by a quite powerful 2nd Solar Eclipse and third eclipse in a row- A New Moon Solar Eclipse Cardinal Grand Cross. So we know the spring and early summer of 2011 will also be filled with important and powerful events and transformational energies.

We are closing in on 2012.  We are getting closer and closer to the beginning of an Aquarian Age, which I estimate beginning in December of 2020, when Jupiter is conjunct Saturn at 0+ degrees of Aquarius, great symbolism for Aquarian entry.

Of course you know how much we all will change during this time period.  Some I know are fearing this change. Others are excited.   Most feel both fear and hopefulness.  Remember that even as huge  waves of change cover our shores, much always stays the same.     

 We have births and deaths, we eat and sleep, we cry and laugh, we need friends and love, we work and accomplish.    But we also change and evolve.

And sometimes there is a huge spike of evolution.  And that is now!  We are being asked to release old ways of living, and of interacting with one another and our Earth home that are destroying us.   We need to rapidly release the programming by our families and culture that keep us toxic and decaying.

We are ready to open more to our authentic selves, to the messages from our deeper souls and the Universe.  This opening will take us forward to where we need to go, when we need to go.  We are always being assisted, if we are open to the spirit around us.

But sometimes we do feel lost and perhaps abandoned.  It is because we are letting go of the old ways.  We are in transition, and have not fully connected with the new frequencies.   We are struggling with letting go of old ways, and a part of us is still trying hard to fit into the dying conventional world.

We are afraid to let go, as the familiar gives us a semblance of security.   When big astrological events occur, our lives and consciousness are shaken up.  This shake-up is intended to loosen our grip on our old ways and lives.  While out of our normal balance, we are better able to move with change.

As you choose to move more strongly into healthier ways of being, that are more aligned with the Universe and your deeper soul, you will be supported by the Universe.  But as the old proverb goes, “Trust Allah, but remember to tie up your camel”.

You cannot have blind faith. It is important to stay in touch with “reality” and practical matters. Just don’t let those matters dominate, as that will bring too much debilitating fear. Make your moves forward while staying connected to the signs and symbols and synchronicities all around you.  But be careful not to make the signs into what you want them to be.  Be as neutral as possible, so you can be objective.

So enjoy our movement into spring now and Aries energies.   Aries is the bold movement of nature, the force of the buds pushing through the branches for new growth.   Feel the stirrings of active energies deep in your psyche now,  the desire for birth and renewal.   It is mainly in seed form still, but soon ready to burst forward into new life.

See you next week,

Japan and the Tsunami of Earth Transformation and Astrology Forecast for March 13-19

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on March 12, 2011 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

The winter of 2010/2011 is almost over.    It has brought with it such a powerful season of change and transformation.

The Lunar Eclipse on the Winter Solstice of 2010 gave us a signature of great transformation for the winter season.   We let you know that that winter solstice signature foretold that the winter season ahead would bring big events that would greatly change our lives on this Earth.   

The powerful revolutionary movements in the Middle East and the huge earthquake-tsunami in Japan have fullfilled that forecast.

Our lives are shifting in big ways.  In literal fact, Japan has moved 8 feet and the Earth has appreciably moved on its axis.  And of course more to the point, our human consciousness and lives are rapidly changing in alignment with the Universe’s accelerated transformation into an Aquarian Age.

And we will not get time to rest from the rapid changes.  The spring and summer of 2011 promise more great changes, changes as great as the ones we have experienced in the winter of 2010/2011.

The summer of 2010 started our most recent bout of transformation with the Grand Cross Lunar Eclipse on July 26 and the cardinal t-square in late July/August.   We let you know prior to this winter that 2010’s aspects were meant to take us out of our comfort zones and shake up our status quo lives, but would not push us fully yet into new phases of our lives.

2011 will do just that.   And in spring and summer 2011 we face a Universal rhythym that will widely open doors into new realms of experience.

Those of you who were alive to experience the ’60s and 70’s remember how fast change swirled around us.   The closed stability of the ’50s broke open and broke down and huge waves of change burst into our lives. A horrible war raged and people took to the streets enraged at the corruption and hypocricy of our leaders and the lack of fairness in the world.  There was such progress as human rights opened up for women, blacks, and others.    An unjust war was ended and a criminal USA president resigned from office. Fashions and hair styles changes drastically, a whole new culture and way of thinking and living was born.  People woke up and acted to change the world.

And now in Egypt and Libya and Tunisia and other parts of the world, another new awakening is beginning.  Old corrupt unjust ways are breaking down again.  People are beginning to rise up again.  Just treatment for our gay brothers and sisters has been opening up and will accelerate more and more.    Marriage rights are on the horizon.

Of course you can see that there is a huge backlash to the opening of great transformational change in our human community on the Earth.  People who want to keep the status quo are getting more ferocious to hold the line and keep the doors of change closed.   The leaders and militaries in the Middle East are trying to keep everything just as it used to be.

 The resistance seems as strong as the power of change.  Conservative movements in the USA are speaking louder and louder.   In Wisconsin and other states there are attempts by state and local governments to take away the rights of workers and unions.  Power to the people seems to be eroding.

And make no mistake about it the damns of resistance to change in this world will continue to build strength.  But the tsunami tides of change cannot ultimately be stopped.  The power of nature has been witnessed in Japan. The power of the cycles of change in the Universe cannot be stopped by any government or military.      

And on the day of the huge earthquake and tsunami in Japan, Uranus was finishing up its 7 year stay in oceanic Pisces- and later that day entered spring-time Aries, where it will be for the next 7 years.   And soon that same Uranus will square Pluto, making their first major aspect to one another since their conjunction in 1965-66, the aspect that brought on the ’60s revolution.

Uranus in Aries will be almost exactly square Pluto, within a most powerful aspect, on July 1 this summer.  There will then be a Solar Eclipse New Moon Cardinal Grand Cross in Cancer that day. The Sun, Moon, Uranus, Pluto, and Saturn will be parts of that grand cross. It will be more powerful than the Grand Cross of 2010 as all planets in the cross this time will be in cardinal signs.   We will be forcefully entering a grand new season of our lives here on planet Earth.

It may seem that Grand Cross formations that are part of eclipses are common, as two summers in a row we are experiencing these formations. But trust me they are very rare.   And having a lunar eclipse on a winter solstice, as we did winter solstice of 2010, is also very rare.  And also uncommon is the fact that this spring, before the Solar Eclipse Grand Cross, there will be two more eclipses. We will be having three in a row- one on June 1, another on June 15, and the third one on July 1.   All these rare astrological occurrences, happening one after another, in the context of the changing of ages, is why we are experiencing such monumental transformation.

Put on your seat belts.  The ride of great changes has only just begun.

Spring and summer of 2011 bring much more.  There will be more great changes coming from nature’s power, more drastic change in the Middle East, greater changes here at home in the USA, and changes in our personal lives.

It is most important now in your personal life to be flexible and open to change.   Stay connected to your center, to your “voice” inside.  Watch for signs ans symbols that are guideposts on your soul’s path.    Look for synchronicities that are the Universe’s way of getting your attention so you will wake up and question and investigate new possiblities.  Do not hold on too tight to anything.  Let go of possessions, beliefs, old patterns and attitudes that have outworn their time.   They may be helping you feel more secure, but they are holding you back. Let them go.

Let go also of old judgments that keep you separate and at a distance from the unity consciousness you desire.  Remember that all is connected to the whole.  Even the conservative attitudes that feel so restrictive to you are part of the whole. They slow down the progress, but hold back the chaos as well.     They cannot hold back the tide of change for long- they are not to feared or hated.

Tonight we turn the clocks ahead in America, bringing the feeling of more light in our lives. Spring is less than two weeks away. It begins on March 20 at 7:21 PM EDT.  It begins another season of great transformational change.

Don’t be afraid of the change, as horrible as it appears sometimes, like in the earthquake. Remember, if you stay centered and aligned, you will be in the right place at the right time to fullfill your personal destiny, the reason you incarnated.

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,

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.

More Volcanoes, More Uranus in Aries changes, and Astrology Forecast for May 30-June 5

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on May 29, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The power of the Earth has spoken again.  Since Uranus entered Aries Thursday, for a mostly 8 year stay, 2 volcanoes have erupted- in Guatemala and  in Ecuador.

In Guatemala, the Pacaya volcano began spewing lava, rocks and debris on Thursday, the day of the Uranus entry, killing at least two people and injuring more than 50 others.

In Ecuador, the  Tungurahua volcano has forced the evacuation of seven villages and shut the airport and schools in Guayaquil, the country’s largest city.

These volcanoes follow close behind the Iceland volcano eruption this spring, which closed many European airports for extended periods of time.   Taken together with the powerful earthquakes that have occurred this year, most notably the devastating one in Haiti, we are collectively experiencing more natural disasters than usual.

As we have spoken of many times before in this blog, this spring and summer 2010 are meant to bring much transformational change to our earthbound human family.   And now with Uranus recently moved into Aries and soon to be joined by Jupiter in Aries on June 8; the changes accelerate.

And then this summer, energies intensify even more as there is a Lunar Eclipse Grand Cross on June 26; followed by a Solar Eclipse on July 11; and a Cardinal T-Square in late July/early August with Mars, Saturn, Jupiter and Uranus.

Natural upheavals will not be the only upheavals we experience.   Like the horrific  BP oil spill and our current economic downfall, other “man-made” disasters await us.

We are at human judgement day, so to speak, as we change ages from a Pisces Age to an Aquarian Age.   As with all age changes or any kind of powerful transitions, there can be enormous birth pains.   And while the new age is in the birth canal, we all as a human family make intention for our new age.

What do we release from the last age that does not serve our evolution as a species or our citizenship in our Earth community?   What do we bring with us?   The awaiting challenges will force us to look deeper at who we are, where we have come from, and where we want to go.

Do we want to continue our paradigm of dog-eat-dog survival of the meanest and greediest?  Do we want to continue to see ourselves as separate from one another, as often times enemies who destroy one another?  Do we want to continue a world of privilege for some and poverty and suffering for others?

Do we want to continue to destroy our Earth and its creatures in order to satisfy our selfish desires?  Do we want to continue a predator/prey mentality within our human family that destroys many souls and lives of both the predator and prey?

Do we want to continue to allow our privileged members of society to use others for their own gain? As such can we continue to give privilege to priests and other clergy who molest and destroy the lives and trust and hearts of innocent children?

The Universe will bring us new challenges, which will assist us in releasing old ways that no longer serve our human and Earth community.  These challenges will come in the form of more more economic upheaval, which will give us more creative ability to create a better, more fair and just financial system.

We will deal with more man-made karmic disasters like the recent oil spill, which can motivate us to create better environmental structures and controls, and new alternative energy sources.

We will deal soon with threats of new wars that have the potential to be world wars. These threats may take us to know the fear of nuclear warfare.  Will we then as a result make a true commitment to rid our world of weapons of mass destruction as well as rid our world of the need to destroy others who we compete with or do not understand?

Are we ready to embrace the knowledge that we are all ONE FAMILY on a precious and beautiful Earth, in an awesome and complex Uni-verse?

As you personally embrace this ONENESS, this diversity in unity, as you embrace your authentic and sacred self in this greater community; you then can expect more magic and synchronicity, more feelings of love, more knowing of truth.  You will be more motivated to do your part in contributing to the New Aquarian Age upon us.

Astrology Forecast for May 30-June 5

Saturn, also known as Chronos, signifies time and the limitations time presents us with. On Sunday May 30 Saturn goes direct. It has been retrograde since January 13.  When it goes direct, it is as if Time marches forward again.

There can be a sense then of getting one’s life together or doing what you need to do.  There can be a feeling of increased responsibility, or for some an event occurs that feels somewhat fated or meant to be.   But overall there is sense of not being able to run away from something. It is time to get started with what one may have been putting off or procrastinating about.

Saturn direct can also feel very grounding, and give us order and structure to our lives now.  We are letting go of things that time tells us are ready to end, and we are ready to march forward into something new.   IT IS TIME.

The next day on Monday Neptune changes directions also, but is going from direct to retrograde. Neptune in the air helps us lay back and open up to that which is greater than our selves. It can be a turning more to the Universe or God or Goddess, more to our own inner worlds and dreams.

Together, Saturn and Neptune frequencies now bring us a slow down energetically, a time to ponder and plan.  Others will find this combination a time to feel obligation or guilt, before they are ready to move forward with their lives.

And move faster-forward we are bound to do soon. Jupiter goes into Aries on June 6 and joins Uranus in Aries on June.

These movements are bringing us to new beginnings, to breaking outside our usual boxes of of life, to break down old patterns that no longer serve our growth and progress. It is a time to embrace our independence and strength, to fight for what we believe in, to expand our horizons.

Many more world and personal changes are coming our way.  We can, as a result,  break the chains that bind us now, and liberate our hearts, souls and minds from old conditioning and programming and dysfunctional patterns of behavior.

See you next week

Uranus in Aries and Astrology Forecast for May 23-May 30.

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , on May 22, 2010 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Energies of change are circulating much faster through our psyches and lives.    This passing week we witnessed political earthquakes of change.   There has been an uncommon amount of upsets in politics lately.   There is a growing trend to vote in fresh new people to elected office.  This new trend began on November 4 2008 when Barack Obama was elected president of the United States.     

The election happened on the day of the first pass of Uranus opposite Saturn.    Saturn is tradition, status quo, and conservative.  John McCain clearly represented this planetary energy.    Uranus is the Aquarian planet and represents breaking “outside the box” with radical change.     Obama, our first presidential candidate with African American heritage, represented this Uranian planetary energy.  The 5 passes of Uranus/Saturn end this summer.

As in the Presidential election, the movement is to be liberated from the old ways that have lost their “lifeblood”, and to bring in fresh new ways.  The recent elections have kept up this theme, although not usually toward the side of the democrats.

Republican Scott Brown was elected Senator of Massachusetts, filling the seat left open by the death of long time senator Ted Kennedy, a member of the American royal family of Kennedy. This was a huge upset, and has been followed this past week by the upset primary win of libertarian leaning Rand Paul, Ron Paul’s son in Kentucky; and the upset loss of Arlen Spector, long time senator of Pennsylvania.  

The rise of the Tea Party movement in America is part of this shift.  Though many of the Tea Party members are motivated largely by hate and narrow mindedness,   this “party” is part of the transformation of American politics now.  American citizens apparently are wanting big change outside the traditional political boxes.  They are tired of business as usual.  In my estimation, there is revolutionary energy growing toward giving the power of our country to the people, which was the vision of the founders of this country.

And as is being seen in Thailand, with the riots of the people there against their corrupt government, this revolution of the people is against the heavy constraints of  old world wide economic and military structures that benefit the few, not the vast majority of peoples of the world.

And people are also getting more fed up with many other old ways that do not serve the people, do not serve our environment, our sacred Earth and its creatures.  The recent oil spill is a horrible disaster.    It cannot be allowed to happen again.   We have known for many, many years that we need alternative sources of energy.  And yet we continue to be reliant on foreign oil, which keeps putting us into new wars and killing more people.   And we continue to drill for oil off our shores, which created this recent disaster, and will create more if we do not decide to STOP DRILLING.

The ending of old ways and the creation of new ways is also shown in other astrological aspects coming now.   Keep in mind all these aspects have greater influence than they normally would because we are on the cusp of an Aquarian Age and near the Mayan Calendar New World date of 2012.

This coming week shows us Uranus moving into Aries. It has not been in Aries since 1927-1935, a time of changing fortunes in the American economy as the Depression broke the bubble of roaring ’20s euphoria. This was also a time of other great and revolutionary changes in the USA and world.

At the beginning of Uranus in Aries in 1927-1928, as we are now about to experience, there were many new ideas that were manifested.   Remember that Uranus is radical change, and Aries is the first breath of springtime, a sign of new beginnings. Uranus works well in Aries to bring big change.  New ideas instituted in 1927-28 included the first talking movie, the Jazz Singer; Lindbergh with the first solo flight across the Atlantic; penicillin discovered; and even bubble gum invented.

As we are in the throes of Age shifting, we can expect bigger new beginings now.  New information about our human origins is on the way.     The old creationism versus evolution discussion is still alive, but will become obsolete as new information is discovered.   We have human roots in the “heavens”, from the “stars”, and will learn more as time goes by during the Uranus in Aries years, 2010-2018.  These years will deliver us into the Aquarian Age.  Much change is afoot, and our overall Paradigm will change drastically.

Uranus moves into Aries this week Thursday May 27, on the same day as the full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius.   Pay close attention to world events that day to get a “feel” for what is coming during the time of Uranus in Aries, 2010-2018.     Watch what is developing in your own life that day to get in touch with what new trends may be developing for you.   

This Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius will be at 7:07 PM EDT and 4:07 PM PDT on May 27. This Sagittarius Full Moon is usually very lively and animated.     It is not too difficult to get carried away in conversations around this full Moon.    Some have to watch from being overly excited at this Full Moon.  Look for meaning in all you do now, and realize everything happens for a reason. This attitude can help you find more faith in life.

Jupiter makes opposition to Saturn this week also.  This marks the half way point of the 20 year Jupiter/Saturn cycle, which began at their conjunction in Taurus in 2000.  Jupiter/Saturn cycles always promise a “changing of the guard” in our culture. George Bush was elected the year of the conjunction and his presidency significantly changed our American and world culture.   We are now experiencing, with the aforementioned political shifts, a new “changing of the guard”.   More cultural changes are on the way.

After Jupiter moves past this pass of Jupiter opposite Saturn, it moves into Aries on June 5, and then will intensify Uranus in Aries when it makes conjunction with Uranus in Aries on June 8.    We will talk more about this in the next few weeks, but it promises to add more spark to the coming changes and new beginnings.

In your personal life, get ready for new beginnings.    This will be especially true if you are born in the early days of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. This corresponds to late March, late June, late September, and late December.   For those people big change will occur over the next few years.   Of course you could have other planets in early Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, and could be born at any time of year to then be part of these  big changes.  

The approaching Lunar Eclipse Grand Cross in Cancer/Capricorn also affects all the early degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn.   

For all of us it is a time to expect more changes in the world, including a transformation of our economic system, more natural and man-made disasters.   War cries will get stronger this year also.  Be most aware of what is transpiring in the Middle East and in Korea.

Though we can expect our Old World to go through deep and sometimes horrible pain, there are also many wonderful and beautiful events on our collective horizon.  This process is reflective of the labor pains leading us to a new birth into an Aquarian Age.

Let go of your attachment to the old ways, to the old structures of your personal world.  Do not hold on too tigthly to anything.  Be flexible.   And know that the release of the old will bring you much liberation and freedom, an opening of your heart and soul again.

You do not need that job that oppresses you and makes you feel your life is in servitude to something that holds no meaning for you.  You will be better off to get out of that relationship that has kept your heart in chains because of poor communication, little emotional connection, and lack of mutual respect. You do not need to stay in a home or living situation that is miserable for you.  Keeping what is merely familiar to you will not make you happy.   You do not want to look back at your life when you get very old, and regret a life wasted.

Open your wings and get ready to fly. 

See you next Saturday
