Another Turning Point and Astrology Forecast September 24-30

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

As we moved through the end of Eclipse Season, we experienced more natural disasters, more culture battles, and a continuation of ugly violence over North Korea having nuclear weapons.

No one should have weapons of mass destruction of any kind, including nuclear bombs. No one!

The USA and others pushing a sovereign country to stop doing what they have already been doing for many years is starkly hypocritical.  And the USA killed over 300,000 humans, mostly civilian, when they dropped 2 nuclear bombs on Japan in August 1945.

And diplomacy could be found if the Trump administration followed the Russia/China proposal to stop their war games with South Korea while at the same time North Korea puts a stop to their nuclear testing.

USA Trump administration turned that proposal down.  They believe North Korea should stop their testing and destroy their nuclear weapons’ program while the USA offers nothing in return.

This is a really important turning point in world affairs and in our collective evolution into the consciousness of the Age of Aquarius.

All must be equal in value, and accept others in their diverse differences, while seeking Unity within that Diversity.  No more superior and inferior paradigm   Win/Win results in all disagreements.  No more predator and prey.  No more perpetrator and victim consciousness.

The USA must be the last superpower and empire on this planet.  The USA is needing to come down into equality with the rest of the world. The United Nations needs to bring equality to its body of nations.

As the USA accepts its karmic lessons and place in the world, we will have a more graceful voyage into the Age of Aquarius.

When we experienced the Cardinal Grand Cross in 2014, we were beginning in the USA a transformation of our consciousness and values, as that Grand Cross was almost exactly on our Sun in Cancer from our natal chart of July 4 1776.

Uranus square Pluto was part of that Grand Cross, and of course Uranus square Pluto is the first major meeting of those two planets since their conjunction in 1965/66 which initiated the ’60s revolution.

Racial injustices have been coming back, white supremacy has been coming back, and also national chauvinism has been rearing its ugly head busting apart intentions for equality between nations and cultures. Religious fundamentalism which precludes efforts at equality and diversity has turned up in terrorism and in general attitudes of superior/inferior.

And now after the Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo, we are given the opportunity to transform and return to the best of what the United States stood for at its birth:  All people are created equal with certain inalienable rights like life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and self determination.  But this must be for all the world, all peoples and nations, not just Americans.

And remember that the Total Solar Eclipse in Leo and its movement across the USA was also opposite the natal USA placement of Moon in Aquarius, which represents those aforementioned values.

The Leo Eclipse triggered Trump’s Ascendant and Mars in his natal chart, showing us a most diseased Leo expression of narcissism, self centeredness, sense of superiority, and dominance over the rights of others. This opposes the USA core values of Moon in Aquarius.

This is our time of standing up for what is right and for what the best of our country represents.  We may have to start another revolution against the current representation of King George from England from revolutionary times: King Trump.

And this week,  we have entered the other side of Autumn Equinox, moving downward in light minutes of the day,  increasing dark yin minutes of the day until the Winter Solstice, when the tide begins to turn back toward light and yang energies.

This week also represents a turning point in other ways as Pluto changes directions from Retrograde to Direct, and Jupiter opposes Uranus.  All this happens close to the same date on September 27/28.

We will be thrust outside any boxes or ruts in our lives, and pushed much more strongly into transformational energies.

Jupiter/Uranus is wake up call of liberation from old ways. It also brings up the opposition of Libra peace and making relationship (Jupiter in Libra) versus having conflict, independence and self satisfaction (Uranus in Aries).

That will play out most likely in relationships of your life.  Will you stand stronger in your independence and empowerment, or do you need to be more sensitive to the needs of others? Of course at best you can find a balance between those two opposites: standing for your needs, while at the same time listening for what someone else needs too.

In the world the North Korea/USA drama will either turn toward peace soon, or else make final commitment toward battle.

At around the same time as Jupiter opposite Uranus, powerful Pluto changes directions and permeates our energy field.  So issues, especially relationship issues, will become more real and will reach down into the core of truth.

As Pluto goes down into the underworld of our psyches, we potentially face the death of old ways, as new ways burn brighter in our consciousness.

In the world, culture and race issues may become stronger still,  natural disasters especially earthquakes are more apt to erupt again,  the North Korea issue could get even more intense, and Middle East/Syria is more likely in the spotlight of our awareness.

This is a powerful time of transformation, and you will have the opportunity to release more of what does not serve you while finding the magic of the new yellow brick roads in your life.

The Jupiter opposition to Uranus is almost exactly square to the USA natal Pluto in its second house.   This is the part of the USA that represents its Military/Industrial Complex, so coined by President Eisenhower.  He warned that it would usurp our democracy and power of the people.

So you can expect energies that seek to break down that power, as well as energies to make it more powerful. Eventually it will transform the power of that complex into a new kind of empowerment, one that represents the people.

This is only the beginning of that natal USA Pluto being aspected.  In 2020/21 Saturn will conjunct that Pluto, and in 2021-2023 Pluto will have it very first Pluto Return in the USA natal chart- 245 years after the birth of the USA.

So these next several years will bring enormous transformation of USA power and the power of its government, military, and financial institutions.

And of course the entry into the opening of a major portal into the Age of Aquarius also happens in the early 2020s.

We the people can not go to sleep.  We must, with great passion, bring about an even bigger revolution than what happened in the ’60s.

We must go much further with that work, and bring down the new Nixon administration, which is our current Trump presidential administration.

He is in our lives to remind us that the transformation of this country must be fulfilled, so we can be an equal member of the community of nations and cultures, one of many with rights of self determination, and of freedom and happiness.

Diversity within Unity will become reality. Truth and Love will be both Above in the heavens of the Universe as always, and synchronistically Below in the core values of our Earth community.

Till next week,

Leo

USA Transformation and Astrology Forecast December 11-17

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 10, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

The last full moon of 2016 shows itself this week.   It is a Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini on Tuesday December 13 at 7:06 PM EST.

This makes a close conjunction with the Full Moon that happened on the day of Donald Trump’s birth.   But the Sun and Moon were turned around into opposite signs.

All Full Moons have the Sun and Moon opposite one another.  So for this Full Moon the Sun is in Sagittarius and the Moon is in Gemini.

At Donald Trump’s Full Moon birth the Sun was in Gemini and the Moon opposite in Sagittarius at approximately the same degrees as the one this week.

One of the reasons I predicted Trump’s nomination and subsequent election for president is because this natal Full Moon formation of his is very closely conjunct the USA Mars in Gemini from its natal chart of July 4 1776.

It is not merely coincidental that he has been choosing ex generals to his cabinet and to be his close advisors.  There are 3 already and probably more to come.  General David Petraeus is being considered for Secretary of State.

Look at how Donald Trump is so in favor of military and police.  These two powerful USA institutions will gain even more power and influence in the Donald Trump administration.

We must as citizens of the USA be very vigilant of domination by military and police now.

Remember that starting in April of 2014, deep core transformation of the USA began, as there was a Cardinal Grand Cross formation that made very close aspect to the USA natal Sun at 13+ degrees of Cancer.  There were two eclipses that month also.

In 2014 the Islamic State became a world threat, Russia took over Crimea in Ukraine, and there was a killing of a young black man by police in Ferguson Missouri.

All three of those issues began then and are still in the spotlight of  concern.  Each of those events represents deeper issues that are a part of USA transformation now.

The Uranus/Pluto square had an exact meeting in April 2014, which we have talked about at length as being the first major meeting of those two planets since their conjunction in the mid ’60s triggered the revolutionary movement of the ’60s and ’70s.

Uranus square Pluto had exact meetings from 2012-2015, triggering the transformation of the USA by aspecting its natal Sun and Saturn.

Yet the square is still in effect and influential now through 2017. Jupiter in Libra is forming with that square to make a Cardinal T-square formation that triggers the Cardinal Grand Cross from 2014.

For much of 2017 Jupiter will continue to activate a Cardinal T-square with Uranus and Pluto, promising a most powerful transformational year ahead.

Also this coming year Uranus and Jupiter will make aspect to the USA natal Pluto in Capricorn in the 2nd house.   So there will be great transformation of the USA economy and USA institutions that provide security.

The climax of this transformation of USA Pluto will come in the early 2020s when Saturn conjuncts USA natal Pluto, and there will also be a Pluto Return to its original USA natal placement.  It will be the first ever Pluto Return for the USA.

We can expect security, resources, and the security and economic institutions in the USA to break down and transform into new structures during the next 4-5 years.

The dismantling and transformation of the USA Military/Industrial complex will happen and last into the 2020’s- creating a vast opening for the Age of Aquarius to pour through.

Remember that President Eisenhower warned as he left office that that USA complex would continue to grow and take away our liberties.

We need to return to our core root principles and values in order to have a solid foundation for our place in the Age of Aquarius.   Military/Corporate/Economic control of our lives must end for this to happen .

Donald Trump will attempt to strengthen that Complex while at the same time helping to undo its controls. His Gemini twins work with both sides of that issue.

We will likely have attempts to dominate with order and to conserve the old “system”- while at the same time experiencing increasing chaos and anarchy to challenge that old system. Dominating Order seeks to keep the status quo, while free spirited chaos creates the atmosphere for change.

The next 4-5 years will be quite powerful here in the USA and in western civilization. There is a new world order emerging to form into the Diversity in Unity of the Age of Aquarius.

In the USA the control of our lives by the old paradigm will die with the Trump presidency.

The movement is toward the old minorties becoming the majority and creating true diversity in the USA. There is no stopping this movement.  It is in the numbers and well as spiritual reality.

The old white privileged paradigm in the USA is struggling to survive, and that is why it has gained temporary strength through a Trump presidency. It is a last gasp for that old world.

But as it comes down it will bring much darkness and turmoil to the country and world.  And of course we will experience great leaps of growth and consciousness transformation at the same time.

And this week brings us the Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini that connects with the USA natal Mars and Trump’s natal Sun and Moon.

This is a usually lively full moon full activating various types of communication. It will prompt us to integrate lots of information into some order, meaning and resolution.

This is a good time for learning and education.

Saturn conjunct this Full Moon, however, will push hard for resolution, conclusions, and limits. For some this will put a damper on otherwise lively communication at this annual Full Moon in Gemini.

There may also be a sense of fated events for the USA and soon to be president Trump around this time with the Saturn influence.  

Keep in mind that next week on the 19th Mercury will go retrograde and will stay retrograde until January 8.

Many have already been feeling its effects as it has slowed down appreciably before it will stop on the 19th and then go retrograde.

As you know our perceptions begin to change, our thinking and communcating sometimes become distorted. We rewind to times and people gone by, and we may begin to question our previous decisions. More on that next week.

Till next week,

Leo

Entering a New Era and Astrology Forecast April 3-9

Posted in Uncategorized, Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 2, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

This is an important week ahead.  The eclipses have passed, a big old era of our lives has passed.   The door that leads back to that old era is slammed shut, so there is nowhere to go but forward after the New Moon in Aries on April 7.

This Aries New Moon, on April 7 at 7:24 AM EDT, means more than the usual one, as it signifies bigger new beginnings than usual.

The goodbyes are most deeply felt now before the new moon.

Our whole world is passing from one era to another.     Look at the political world and competition for President.

The old rules from the old era are not there like they used to be.   The candidacies of Sanders and Trump are breaking all the old rules down.

Sanders is an avowed socialist who has little allegiance to the monetary “system”.   Trump has been breaking all the rules and winning whilst doing so.

In fact if Clinton wins it will mean the first female ever elected, which would mean a new beginning too.

In the greater world the Islamic State has broken all the rules of a civilized society and eaten up land and changed the boundaries that were claimed by nation states, like Iraq and Syria.

North Korea has been getting inordinately more vociferous in its’ screams to be noticed for its nuclear power.  The danger level for war is greater than ever in Korea.

Old Rules have been breaking down, New Rules are slowly developing.

Within the chaos of breakdowns, potential creativity is opened up.  Progress and transformation become more attainable.

But with this chaos there are strong desires to keep a lid on the jar of change, to hold back the rushing energies of transformation.

More fascistic politics get stronger, militaries and police forces get stronger.

In Europe the chaos of immigration and terrorism has been creating more right wing voices to act to heavily control everything.

This is a most dangerous combination between chaos and control, but it is a natural place to be in this transition between ages.

And now we are entering, with this Aries New Moon, a new era within the transition between ages.

This new era will be focused on the breakdown of the old world and its system in America and around the world.

In your own life, after this Aries New Moon which is conjunct liberating Uranus, it is time to move forward and not look back. This New Moon is also square Pluto, so the still viable transformational Uranus/Pluto square is being triggered at this New Moon.

Expect the intensity level to increase appreciably and the desire for action to get stronger.

You are being liberated from old stuck places in your mind, heart, body and life.

You are being directed to your true Self and your personal needs, to your true authentic Self.

It is time to move forward in a big way now, freed from old patterns of servitude to causes other than your own.

You are here on this planet to fulfill a destiny and you cannot do that if you continue to constantly get distracted by others’ dramas.

Use this Aries New Moon to break away and get going in this new era of your life.

If you have already entered this new season of your life, then use this New Moon to propel your Self forward without looking back.

There is no time now that can be alotted to wringing your hands with complaints.

It is time to do something about it, to empower your Self like you have never done before.

Aries is quite arguably the most empowered of all the signs (Scorpio would disagree), so you can use this energy to feed your inner forces of strength.

Uranus in the signature of this New Moon in Aries will awaken you out of any slumber you have been in.  Pluto will help you to be ruthless in your desires to move on.

The winter slumber in our minds and hearts will end after this New Moon in Aries.  It is time to wake up and to look more clearly at our Self and our life and to make the necessary changes.

Awakening also means seeing and speaking the truth and not hiding it anymore.

In the greater world Uranus is revolution, a breaking from conventional standards of behavior.  So watch for peoples and countries to break out and make great breakthoughs surrounding and after this Aries New Moon.

Countries that feel shackled by the world system will get stronger with their actions and voices. So North Korea and Palestine may get more angry now.

In your personal life it would be beneficial now to honor this move into  a new era of your life.

Look over the past few years and see how it has been for you and your growth.

If you feel regret because of what was done or not done during that time, please realize that until one truly wakes up, change will not happen.

Don’t judge your self for what happened in the last era of your life. Instead look it over and learn from your mistakes. You can take responsibility without finding blame.   Ponder the possibility that everything happened for a reason, even if you cannot figure it out.

And now as you have awakened in a new way, take responsibility for making the necessary changes.

If you blame someone else for your stuck place, you are missing the deeper point.   That person you blame for being stuck was chosen by you to be in your life.   They are a part of you, the part that is comfortable in the familiar and is afraid of change.

If you truly are ready for change, then find a way to do it!

It will be a very interesing Spring and Summer 2016– Lots of big change and powerful Earth shaking world events.

Stay tuned right here,

Leo

Streams of Change and Astrology Forecast February 7-13

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 6, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

 

In March a Major Portal will open the floodgates of accelerated transformational changes for both our global and personal lives. 

Two important Eclipses will burst forward then:  a Solar Eclipse New Moon in water sign Pisces, and a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries/Libra

Of course those waters flowing through the new Portal will seek to break down any blockages in systems, souls, and bodies; so these healing waters of revolution and evolution can live more fully in us.

So we have about a month before this transformational energy comes rushing through.

This Monday February 8 brings us an important new beginning with a New Moon in Aquarius.

In many ways sensitive people will begin to experience the Eclipse Season after this New Moon in Aquarius.

Floods of soulful energies will pour through our world beginning at the Solar Eclipse in water sign Pisces.  

Water Bearer Aquarius, an air sign, carries streams of change that will open into an ocean of change at the Solar Eclipse in Pisces. Neptune is the “ruler” of Pisces and of course Neptune is the God of the Oceans.

The New Moon this week in Aquarius is at 9:39 AM EST.  It brings the beginning waves of the Eclipse Season.

So an important lunar cycle begins at the New Moon in Aquarius this week.  It carries the energies and issues that will burst forth in March, dramatically changing our lives both personally and globally.

Then April will continue the onslaught of transformational energies, as the Uranus/Pluto square (still in effect), will be triggered as Mars changes directions and Mercury goes Retrograde again.

So at this New Moon in Aquarius, allow the new energies to seep in slowly before their Grand opening in March and April.

This New Moon in Aquarius gets us more attuned with our need to be very distinct individualized persons, being authentic and not molding ourselves according to societal or family dictates.

At the same time as we get in touch with that which makes us unique and different,  aligned with the sign Aquarius we ironically seek socially conscious groups that we can somehow fit into.

Often I write about Diversity within Unity being the callling card of the Age of Aquarius.

Aquarius is about being your unique self with unique function in the community, equal in value to all others, all in unity.

This New Moon in Aquarius is a good time to really get in touch with what you believe in idealistically and politically.

The elections for President should be about who answers your calls for the type of world you believe in, not who is the lesser of evils.

If people keep voting for lesser of two evils, we will always have an “evil” world, so to speak.

This time there are candidates outside the usual boxes, as the world is moving into a New Age.  Vote your heart and conscience, not according to some political “wisdom”.

The Iowa caucus showed favorites doing well, and Ted Cruz won the Republican caucus while Sanders and Clinton were pretty much even.

Astrologically speaking, I do not see Cruz winning.   Rubio, Trump, Bush, and Sanders look the best astrologically to me.

Though my astrological formula has done well in the past, keep in mind that we all vote and nothing is written in stone.

But for Cruz or someone else who does not fit into, by formula,  what is coming into our country and world does not make sense to me.

The New Moon in Aquarius brings with it on February 8- a Chinese New Year of the Monkey.  The monkey is considered a mentally agile symbol and great gains technologically make sense as a result this, as well as new ideas and inventions this coming year.

This year already has shown us that the recent transformational energies are now taking hold and becoming more real.

Yes the Presidential campaigns are showing us how the electorate wants change away from same-old doing business as usual.

The USA has been having its very central core broken down over the last couple of years as Uranus and Pluto have been making aspect to its Sun in Cancer.

The presidential elections show how the USA no longer knows who it is as its identity has been changing.  President Barack Hussein Obama has brought a whole new kind of president, outside the usual box of white anglo saxon protestant male.

And our detente with Cuba and Iran has changed our relationship to the world.  And our not blindly following Israel’s needs has also changed our relationship to them and the Muslim world.

The Middle East is so important to the world’s transformation into a New Age.

The Middle East is where most of our major religions and civilizations were born. It is where the transition between ages is brewing, where a New World will erupt from.

Will we in the USA continue the path President Obama represents and elect someone who continues to be on that track?

Or will we elect someone who sees America as better than the rest, and hates Muslims or others who they feel threaten the American way of life.

Will we bring in a president who will represent Diversity in Unity, equality for all;  or will we need to go back two dangerous steps before we go three steps forward later?

The presidential choices are more clear now than since the ’60s and ’70s.  Each of us must now reach for our “better angels” inside us.  Revenge, fear and hatred will take us into a dark tunnel of pain.  Love combined with Truth will take us to the best places, places aligned with the best of the Age of Aquarius.

Till next week,

Leo

Election Year Forecasts and Astrology Forecast January 10-16

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

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

There is a New Moon in Capricorn  at 8:30 PM EST on Saturday January 9.   It signifies new beginnings, as do all new moons.

This one is in Capricorn and as such it prompts us to get back out into the world, to organize and plan, to be more disciplined, to do what one needs to do,  to make firmer boundaries, to be in one’s integrity, to demand more from your self and others, to concentrate more on work and accomplishment, to have greater self respect, to be more logical and realistic.

This is a more intense Capricorn New Moon than usual,  as the Uranus/Pluto square fits into the lunation’s configuration- with the New Moon in Capricorn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries square the New Moon.

Besides being more intensifed than usual, it will also tend to shake up our usual thinking and habits, and to transform us out of old patterns and beliefs that we have outgrown.

It assists our transformational journey into a new season of our lives, helping us to release and to find closure on some issues.

The coming week, therefore, will push us forward, whether we feel we are ready or not.  Keep in mind that Mercury is Retrograde, so do your best to take it slow, to go through the full process; and with a New Moon in Capricorn, be rather cautious about making any moves that have long term implications.  

We are getting closer now to the first caucuses and primaries for President of the United States.  Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens and other parties will be choosing this year their nominees for President.

The election for a new President is less than 10 months away now.  The first caucus is in Iowa on February 1 and the first primary in New Hampshire is on February 9.

So both of these elective events will be held after Mercury goes back Direct on January 25.

Today’s assessment of the candidates for President is being presented during Mercury Retrograde, so I will wait till late January to make an absolute prediction for both Republican and Democrat nominees as well as predicting who will be the next President.

But I will nevertheless give you an astrological assessment of each candidate’s chances to win before that, kind of like odds of their winning based on the planets.

I use a formula I have created to assess the chances of each candidate. This formula is in large part based on how much each candidate’s natal planets connect with the USA natal planets from July 4 1776, the nation’s birth date.

This formula is also based on important planetary movements and transits that will be occurring over the next four years or so, and how much each candidate has planets that fit into those transits.

I do this because it only makes sense that whoever is President will have a planetary makeup that connects with whatever crises the world and especially the USA is going through.

I used this formula for the 2008 election for President, and in late 2007 I predicted that Senator John McCain would be the Republican nominee, and then Senator Barack Obama would be the Democrat nominee.

At the time I made the predictions Rudy Giuliani had a huge lead in the polls for the Republican nomination and Hilary Clinton had an overwhelming lead to be the nominee for the Democrats.

I thought at that point that my formula must be crazy, but it turned out right on.

For President I said the planetary aspects were favorable for both McCain and Obama, but I gave the slight edge to Obama.

Now this time I will be assessing the chances only of those who have any chance at all, as there are so many candidates. I will not be looking at Libertarians, or Greens etc. as the processs for finding a President through debates and media coverage is controlled and dominated by Corporate and Party control of media and debates, taking away the chances for smaller parties to win.

We will take a few weeks to make the assessments.

For the Democrats, Bernie Sanders and Hilary Clinton are the ones who are running for President.

Bernie Sanders was born on September 8 1941 at 12:27 PM in Brooklyn Heights, New York.

His Sun is in Virgo, his Moon is in Aries and he has Scorpio Rising.

This makes him intensely passionate, forthright and direct, and wanting perfection and purity in all he seeks.

His Rising Sign in Scorpio and his Saturn in Taurus square the USA natal Moon in Aquarius; his North Node in Virgo exactly conjuncts the USA natal Neptune; his Pluto in Leo closely conjuncts the USA North Node; and his Moon/Mars conjunction in Aries has contact with the USA Sun in Cancer and its Pluto in Capricorn. His Jupiter in Gemini conjuncts the USA natal Mars placement in Gemini.

That is a lot of connections to the USA natal chart, making him a serious candidate.

In the sky for all of us, there will be important Uranus transiting connections to the USA Pluto in Capricorn- in 2017 and 2018, and Sanders’ Mars in Aries will be affected at the same time by that Uranus transit.

Pluto will make its first ever USA Pluto Return in 2021, and a second term for Sanders would connect him with that reality.  No human beings ever have a Pluto Return as it takes almost 250 years of age before it can happen.

Pluto in Capricorn in the USA natal second house is where we can see its power base for money and resources and its world dominance.

The Pluto Return will give us a turning point in the Superpower staus of the USA in the world.

Around the same time, in December of 2020, Jupiter will conjunct Saturn in Aquarius, a sign of the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius; so the USA will be either struggling to become an equal member of the Diversity in Unity world forming for the New Age, or it will be nicely fitting into that new world already.

And whichever candidates are connected to that Pluto in Capricorn natal position of the USA have a better chance of being a nominee and/or President.  A few other candidates we will look at also have a connection to the USA natal Pluto.

Hilary Clinton was born on October 26 1947 at either 8 PM or 8 AM.   Different close friends or workers of hers have given these polar opposite times of birth.  So Astrologers use both to try assess Ms. Clinton.

The 8 AM time gives Hilary Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Pisces and Scorpio Rising, making her a double Scorpio.

The 8 PM time gives her Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Pisces,  the same as the 8 AM time, but the rising sign changes from Scorpio to Cancer Rising.

The 8 AM time with double Scorpio (and also Mars conjunct Pluto) show her to be very intense and powerful,  rather ruthless and demanding, yet also being a very sensitive feeling person who sacrifices herself for others (Moon in Pisces).

But in this 8 AM scenario the “weight” of her tendencies is more toward the power and ruthlessness, and less toward the gentle sensitive.

With the 8 PM Cancer Rising she still is very intense and powerful, but the “weight”of her character is toward sensitive and giving, motherly and nurturing, sensitive and caring.

In the 8 AM chart her Rising sign of Scorpio, her Saturn in Leo and her North Node in Taurus all make difficult aspect to the USA Moon in Aquarius. Her Uranus in Gemini makes conjunction to the USA Mars in Gemini (which rules conflict and war);  and her Venus in Scorpio and Neptune in Libra make rather favorable aspect to the USA natal Sun in Cancer.

There are no connections to the USA natal Pluto and few to the coming important planetary movements.

Her 8 PM birth time has similar connections, but with a more warm and fuzzy temperament.

Both Sanders and Clinton have enough solid connections to have a chance to be the Democrat’s nominee for President as well as actual President.

We will also look at the Democratic Convention and Election Day planetary alignments in connection to the candidates’ natal charts before making final predictions.  We will then make a final prediction after Mercury goes back Direct on January 25.

The next couple of weeks we will analyze the Republicans.

Remember that my assessments will be strictly based on the astrological formula and I will divorce my predictions from polls or conventional political wisdom.

For this coming week, it is time to get your life more in order and to make commitments to plans and goals, issues and people who are important to you.

But remember that Mercury is Retrograde, so thinking and communication are in flux and thus off their usual center. Expect the past to come back to you in various ways also.

The stock market took up where it left off during the eclipses in September, going way down in value.   This is only the beginning of a vast transformation of the world and USA economy.

Let’s meet again next week,

Leo

Back in the World Again, a look at 2016 and Astrology Forecast January 3-9

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 2, 2016 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

It should be obvious to all who are tuned in, that our world is going through huge transformaional change.

This new chapter of life for humans on Planet Earth quite arguably began at the Cardinal Grand Cross in April 2014.   And all of 2014 and 2015 have expanded our collective experience of this new life season and world we find ourselves in.

This new chapter or season of our lives is similar to the ’60s and ’70s revolutionary period of time.  So much is shifting, and people are again having to adjust their consciousness and life to be in step with the changes.

There is a huge push toward big change, similar to the ’60s and ’70s,  but of course the quality and experiences of such change is different.

There has been a passionate revival of civil rights issues,  the last couple of years for African Americans and for LGBT peoples.

There is a stoking of primal conflictual tensions also, as the Islamic State was fully born at the Cardinal Grand Cross, and then perpetrated many vicious acts in 2014/15.

Many people have been holding on tightly to status quo life stability, while at the same time letting in the changes that cannot be stopped.

And all of this is happening as the Technological revolution has become more and more an important part of everyone’s life. It actually consumes the life and consciousness of more and more people.

And as we look at our political world, as can be in part seen through the approaching primary season for President of the USA, candidates and voter reaction show us a huge transformation going on in our worldviews.

Especially the candidates Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are revealing the deep dissatisfaction the citizens feel for the current condition of life in the USA.

And don’t be fooled by the statistics showing the economy on solid footing.

It is a mirage, as many people are generally having a rough time of it financially. Two people need to work in most families; college has outrageous costs for young people; and corporate controls of people’s souls and lives is quite apparent.

The world as we have known it has been changing rapidly these last couple of years, and sometimes people are overwhelmed trying to take it all in.

As in the ’60s and ’70s, the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius is awakening more in more in people’s hearts, consciousness and lives, whether they know it or not.

Our individual lives, our country, and our world are transforming at a rapid rate now, and even our sense of time seems to be accelerating.

And now in 2016 we will feel even more fully into this new chapter of our lives, as personal and global changes continue to intensify.

Uranus continues to square Pluto, though not exact anymore; and Saturn continues to square Neptune, with Jupiter in Virgo forming a mutable  T-square to Saturn and Neptune.

Uranus squares Pluto, similarly to the Uranus conjunct Pluto aspect that swept us into the ’60s revolution.

Powerful change continues as they continue their  transformational dance with one another.

And Saturn square Neptune continues our challenges with boundaries and limits, and continues our trying to balance security with sometimes big changes.

In the greater world that will often take the form of chaotic changes and uprisings being threatening to a sense of security. So then police, military and governmental controls will get stronger and stronger.

Anarchy versus fascism would be the most dramatic expression of this conflict.

The transformation of the global economy will likely require a worldwide crash of the stock market to clear the way this year.

And the rebalancing of power in the world to Diversity in Unity will likely require conflicts intensifying in the world. The Middle East will break apart much more.  Europe will face greater threats to its stability as will the USA.

Yet those who are being awakened and are transforming and evolving will also see an unveiling of hidden truths, a reconnection to more magic and synchronicity, and a greater sense of empathy for those who are supposed to be enemies.

A knowing that all is connected and that meaning is everywhere we look is another benefit of the transformation into the Age of Aquarius.

A healing of our human family and our Earth home is another important part of the great changes in our lives in this new season.

And each of us will be more motivated to lead more authentic lives through our jobs, relationships and personal worlds.

It will be another year of great change and a greater acceptance of this new season of our lives.

This coming week, the first full week of 2016,  shows three very important shifts: Mercury Retrograde, Jupiter Retrograde and a last quarter Moon leading to the Capricorn New Moon.

Tuesday January 5 Mercury goes Retrograde at 8:06 AM, breaking up the 11 day opening of all planets being Direct.  Mercury will stay retrograde until January 25.

As always our perception of reality shifts, as do our communication efforts.   There is a rewinding into our past and into past relationships, either in our dreams, our strong memories or in our actual lives.

Some will feel like they are slowly drifting into another reality, like being in a Twilight Zone.  And it should go without saying that with all this mental shifting, it would be wise if possible to puAt off any major decisions or important new ventures until Mercury goes back Direct again.

Jupiter goes Retrograde on Thursday January 7.  Combined with Sun square Uranus and Moon in Sagittarius , there could be a couple days of greater excitement surrounding that date.

The third shift this week is into the last Quarter phase of the Moon. This last quarter will bring to an end the lunar cycle begun at the New Moon in Sagittarius on December 11.

The last quarter phase of the Moon is always a time of tapering off activity and issues that began at the New Moon.

There is a feeling of “coming down”, and some people get more depressed at such times.  But most will just accept that they are on the down slope before the beginnings and renewed energies and actions at the next New Moon.

The New Moon will be on Saturday January 9 at 8:31 PM EST. in Capricorn.

Being in Capricorn it coincides with needs to get back into the world, to discipline oneself more, to meet one’s obligations, to do what one needs to do, to plan more, to accomplish, and to follow a set of rules that one believes in.  It is time to take more responsibility for one’s life, and not put the blame on others.

A New Moon in Capricorn shows us our need to set up more solid boundaries and to be able to say no when appropriate.

Capricorn is rules by the planet Saturn, and as such teaches us life lessons, gives karma, rules the hand of time, and brings us wisdom from our mistakes and life lessons and experiences.

So this week will certainly take you off vacation, and thrust you back into the world and reality.

Just please do not take it all too seriously, do not be too strict, and do not (with Mercury going Retrograde) believe everything you see and think, or make any big decisions or major life moves.

Till next week,

Leo

Ready or Not and Astrology Forecast December 13- 19

Posted in Weekly WorldView and Astrology forecast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 12, 2015 by spiritualtherapy

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

On and around Friday December 11 we received energies that assist us in getting out of stuck places and patterns.

Mars opposed Uranus and then there was New Moon in Sagittarius.

It is a signal that it is time to move forward.  We can begin to move beyond having to concentrate on intensive processing of emotions and thoughts, digging deeper to face our demons and shadows, and feeling stuck and unable to move forward.

It is time to more fully enter a new chapter of our lives here on Planet Earth.

We have been in this new chapter for awhile already, but now we can begin to stop mulling over what we imagine we did wrong,  stop feeling we are the victim to someone or something, and stop going over the same tapes in our minds that keep us trapped.

It is time to embrace the free spirit in us, and to allow the Universe and our Higher Selves to inspire our souls and help guide us.

It is time to let go of the excuses that have held us back, and to more fully take responsibility for our lives and the world we live in.

Indeed so many of us have been traumatized by our childhoods and earlier experiences, and challenged by the wounds we have endured and the karma we have received.

But there are times such as now when we can throw off the chains that have bound us and start to trust our deeper souls and the Universe.

Of course there will still be times when you will face your demons again, when you will need to feel your trauma again; but you can now begin to stop letting those issues Control your heart, mind and life.

What is running your show, so to speak?  Is it love or fear?

Now is the time, as the Sagittarius New Moon has just been experienced, to let the fire of spirit lift you forward in your life.

It has felt like a long time since the Eclipses of September.   We now are in a whole new realm of experience.

The global powers that be are trying to manage grave new terror threats, a weakening global economy, and a Middle East and world that is so susceptible now to some spark of miscalculation that would light a fire of world war.

President Obama, whatever you otherwise feel about the job he has done, has been holding back the tide of overwhelming forces of potential global disaster.

He opened up doorways to better relations with Iran and Cuba; he has resisted the temptation to demonize Islamic peoples; and he has tried to detach from his emotions in order to listen to his “better angels” inside.

Of course he is largely controlled by big Corporate interests and a decaying global  paradigm, as all presidents would be now.

But he at least is walking a thin line that has opened some consciousness and light into the new world and age.

There is the light of Diversity in Unity beginning to shine through his making relationship with Cuba, Iran, and Islam.  And his administration has helped open doors for greater rights for LGBT peoples.

And he has given credence to obvious abuse of African Americans as seen in Ferguson and elsewhere.

And he has taken part passionately in the recent global conference on Climate Change.  That conference has just come up with a plan to deal with Climate Change, a most postive world development.

The Uranus/Pluto square has been aspecting the natal Sun/Saturn of the USA from its birth on July 4 1776.  It has been doing so ever since the Cardinal Grand Cross in April 2014.

The Sun in a person’s or any entity’s of country’s natal chart represents one’s central self and identity, one’s ego, but also one’s higher purpose.

Pluto and Uranus are two powerful transformational planets.   As they make aspect to the USA natal Sun they are trying to get the USA prepared for a Diversity in Unity Age of Aquarius.

As such the USA is needing to let go of its ego of Superpower.  It is hopefully in the process letting go a paradigm that gives license to impose its way of being on others.

President Obama’s time in office has shown some light as we have said before into a transformed USA ego and sense of purpose.

But at the same time there is a collective desire to cling to the old ego.

Is not Donald Trump a reflection of that narcissistic ego?

Can we as a nation rise beyond that ego, and reintegrate the better values from our founding principles.

All men are created equal with certain inalienable rights like life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  But now those principles need to be applied to all peoples all over the Earth.

All people are created equal; diverse peoples living together in unity; and freedom to pursue one’s individual or country’s destiny are principles of the Age of Aquarius.

BTW the USA natal chart shows a Moon in Aquarius. The Moon is one’s inner soul and inner values.

If we can return to the core of our values we can be a benefit to humanity, not to dominate but to work in equality with all others.

The Earth and USA have also now more fully entered this new chapter of human life on Planet Earth, on the road to an Age of Aquarius in the 2020’s.

For all of us it is now “ready or not here it comes”.

There is no  more turning back and no more sitting on fences, no more hand wringing with fear.

We have each chosen which fork in the road we are taking, even if that choice is buried within- beyond our conscious knowing.

This coming week has no really strong aspects pushing or pulling us in any direction.

Nevertheless, we are on an “upward slope’ on the way to the Full Moon in Cancer on Christmas Day.  And we are at the same time on a “downward slope” on the way toward the Winter Solstice on December 21/22 (depending on what time zone you are in).

Processing on our lives and emotions and spiritual path will continue even though we are now taking the ride through this new chapter of life.

But that processing will have strong intention now of finding solution, fostering positive transformation, and continuing to awaken or stay awake to the truth and love all around.

Even if you feel some depression with the darkening days, winter coming on, or the state of our world; it is wise to find a way to see the glass of life as half full now, so you do not slip back into old stories and get swallowed up in fear or rage.

We are inexorably moving into the Age of Aquarius, even if events may seem frightening and foreboding.

Till next week,

Leo
