Resting Up and Astrology Forecast July 2-8.

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

We have entered the 2nd quarter phase of the lunar cycle that began at the Cancer New Moon on June 23.  So thus we are waxing our way up to the Full Moon in Capricorn on July 7/8.

So this week we are only 3 weeks away from the intial winds of Eclipse Season. Then the 1st eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon will be on August 7.  The 2nd eclipse, a most powerful Total Solar Eclipse New Moon in Leo will be on August 21.

These Eclipse Seasons usually happen twice a year, with 2 eclipses in each season.

Eclipse Seasons begin two weeks or so before the first eclipse in a season, and extend to at least two weeks after the last eclipse in a season. These seasons are almost always big turning points in world and personal affairs.

The last Eclipse season was from January 27- March 27 2017.

The Eclipse Seasons often have breakdowns of old habits, patterns, beliefs, and sometimes even breakdowns in relationships, jobs, families, and home lives.

But just as frequently there are usually breakthroughs into awakened thoughts and new ways of living, better relationships, jobs and home lives.

Change is quite frequent during Eclipse Seasons, and much of that change can become transformational, and can open one up to healing of old wounds and traumas.

Keeping status quo is difficult during an Eclipse Season, and usually some part of one’s life will show big movement and change, even if it is one’s belief systems or ways of perceiving one’s life.

Often the issues that are ripe for change and transformation show up before the Eclipse Season, but the intensity of need for their transformation heats up appreciably during the Season, and especially so close to the actual Eclipse event.

If a country or person has any of their personal natal planets in close aspect to the sign and degree of the Eclipse, then that country or person will be most challenged with issues that require one’s close attention.

For instance the Total Solar Eclipse on August 21 will be at almost 29 degreees of Leo.  Donald Trump’s natal Ascendent is at 29 + degrees of Leo and his Mars is at almost 27 degrees of Leo.

So his rising sign, which signifies how he interacts with his world, and his Mars, which signifies how he asserts, fights, and defends himself, are in self involved Leo.

Leo expresses openly and creatively, but when out of balance expresses in a totally self centered way, which if taken to the limit becomes narcissism.

That Leo part of his disposition will be triggered around the eclipse, and since specifically his Mars in Leo will be triggered, he will be vociferously fighting or defending himself (even more than usua), and not unlikely will be using that aggression as Commander in Chief of the United States military.

If your own natal planets will be triggered, you too will have parts of your psyche and life activated and put in the spotlight for change and transformation.

If you have planets from 26 degrees Leo to 1 degree of Virgo you will be greatly affected by that Total Solar Eclipse on August 21.   If you have planets from 26 degrees of Aquarius to 1 degree of Pisces you will be at least substantially affected.

If you have planets from 26 degrees of Taurus to 1 degree of Gemini or 26 degrees of Scorpio to 1 degree of Sagittarius you will be at least somewhat affected.

And of course all of us will be affected by the eclipses as citizens of the world, and most especially the USA where this Total Eclipse will be seen.

World events that are warm now will be much hotter during the actual Eclipse Season, which will begin around the Leo New Moon on July 23.

For now find what nurtures you and helps you to feel safe and loved.  Gather yourself and solidify what is important to you.

It is Sun in Cancer time of year when nature is abundant and the needs for nurturance and unconditional love are at their highest.   What signifies home and family to you needs to be experienced before Eclipse Season begins.

The most vulnerable in our world will need the most care now: our children, our elderly, our wounded, our innocent animals.

This week begins rather intensely as Mars opposes Pluto on Sunday July 2.  Be careful to not emotionally overreact reacting to situations and people.

Also this week, as the Moon gets brighter and brighter on its way to a full moon, Venus will move from Taurus to Gemini on the 4th of July, and will stay in Gemini until July 31.

As Venus moves out of Taurus and into Gemini, it leaves its priority being for physical comfort and care, and for monetary and relationship security.

Its new priority becomes being social and gaining intellectual stimulation, being light and free spirited, and open to being a social butterfly.

On July 5 Mercury leaves Cancer and enters Leo, where it will stay until July 25.

When in Cancer, Mercury’s mental tendencies are to combine its head with its feelings, and sometimes to be confused between thinking and feeling.

As Mercury, the planet of  thinking and communicating, shifts into Leo,  fun creative thinking and openly sharing of ideas become greater priorities.

And at the end of this week,  there is a Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn on July 8 overnight into July 9 at 12:07 AM EDT.

Nurturance and inner values (Cancer) are needing to be balanced with needs for accomplishment and outer validation of one’s efforts (Capricorn).

Balance is also needed between permissive unconditional allowing attitudes (Cancer), with strict guidelines and rules and clear boundaries (Capricorn).

The actual Full Moon has Pluto conjunct the Moon in Capricorn which increases the emotional intensity and opens things up to transformation through catharsis.

Full Moon have an energetic effect a day or two before full moon, on the date of the full moon and up to two days after.  This Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn can also bring up parental issues and can make clear what iis needed for greater stability in one’s life.

The next full moon will be on August 7, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius.

Time now to nurture and stabilize before the intensity increases in Eclipse Season.

Till next week,


We will do a video in July for the important August Total Solar Eclipse and Eclipse Season.  We will have a new website up to view in July also.

There is a video now of my recent talk at the Enlightenment Expo that my friend Jonne Trees has recorded:

The subject is about navigating the planetary changes this year.

Please take a look at the video David Lonebear Sanipass and I created recently-

If you need any help with your relationship now, I have done couples’ counseling for many years. Do you need to identify and work out old patterns? Do you need to decide whether to stay or go?  I use the astrological model to help in the counseling process. We can use Skype if outside New England. Write me at if interested.

Clearing the “Airwaves” Mercury Direct, and Astrology Forecast for April 1-7

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on March 31, 2012 by spiritualtherapy

by Leo Knighton Tallarico

Energies are stirring.  Winds of change are softly beginning to blow in.

If you have felt held back, impatient for your life to get moving, soon it will change.

Mercury goes back direct this week Mars goes back direct the next week after that.  A month or so after that is the first of two eclipses, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Gemini.  Two weeks after that is the second eclipse, a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Sagittarius.   And about three weeks after that is the first pass of highly transformational Uranus square Pluto.  Very creative and sometimes chaotic energies and events will be bursting into our lives.

Many of you are opening to new ideas, inventive ways to bring progress to your lives. Old stuck energies and patterns are being broken down, so these new ways can make breakthroughs in your attitudes and lives.

Keep making the inner changes and spiritual shifts for just a bit longer.   You want to be in proper alignment for the coming changes.   You have been getting prepared for quite awhile now, your body and soul shifting out of old frequencies, healing and releasing what is ready to go.

Your old fears, which have been held in your body, mind, and heart will no longer hold you back.    You are liberating your self.   You are ready to live a more authentic and purposeful life.   You are ready to join hands with others in healing our planet and human condition, in alignment with the burgeoning Aquarian Age consciousness.

The coming Eclipse Season will assist your growth as it will help with breakdowns of old patterns and breakthroughs into new consciousness and ways of being.  But first we have the end of Mercury and Mars Retrgrade coming up soon.

Mercury goes Direct this week Wednesday April 4 at 6:11 AM EDT.   Issues will begin to clear up.  Direction will be more obvious.   Decisions will begin to form. Communication will be better.  Total clarity for some will take a few more days, as Mercury gets up to speed.

Mars goes Direct a little over a week later, on April 13.    It is time to begin to move forward with our lives.    It will not be a time to move forward fast, as Mars will be barely moving forward, going very slowly for several days.   But its going Direct will be a turning point you should feel.  Your life is ready to move forward.

After the New Moon in Taurus on April 21, you can take bigger steps forward with your life.  And after May 20, at the next New Moon, which is a Solar Eclipse on the day the Sun moves into Gemini, you will be ready for a locomotive life movement.

In the greater world dramas, storms will soon just be beginning to form.  We have alerted you in past forecasts to the potential of an attack on Iran and a downturn of the economy during the coming eclipse season.   We let you know that the Mars Retrograde period would be a time when the world would be “deciding” what it would do with the Iranian situation.

On the day Mars went retrograde, on January 23, the European Union decided it would impose severe sanctions on Iran, in league with sanctions already announced by the USA.   And on April 13, the actual day Mars goes back direct again, world powers and Iran will meet to try to settle their differences.

If they do, the crisis will be calmed down for now, and an attack in the near future will be doubtful. If, however, Iran shows no desire to comply with demands to curtail their nuclear activities, then war will be inevitable and soon.  Israel will attack.

 Mars, the god of war, is in the planetary spotlight, as it goes Direct, on the same day as the meeting- quite an impressive synchronicity. The three days surrounding the May 20 Solar Eclipse New Moon in Gemini, and the three days surrounding the June 19  second-in-a-row New Moon in Gemini are likely times for attack, if attack does indeed happen.

And the world economy, which shows signs of fragility because of the troubles in southern Europe, will be greatly affected by what happens concerning Iran. The oil market and oil prices are greatly influenced by the Iranian crisis, for many people all over the world.

This coming eclipse season, which includes a powerful Uranus/Pluto square, will reveal to us in a major way, the extent of transformation of our world in 2012 and beyond.

Of course December 21 2012 is the date considered the ending of the Mayan Calendar and the end of an Old World.   What exactly that means is still to be determined.    And this eclipse season and the next eclipse season in November of 2012 will show us much of what the 2012 world turning point will be like.

There is one more important Retrograde movement coming up soon, during the upcoming Eclipse Season.   Venus, goddess of love and relationships, will be turning retrograde on May 15, just 5 days before the Solar Eclipse on May 20.     There will be powerful shifts and changes around heart issues and relationship.    Old relationship patterns that are getting stale or toxic will be ripe for breakdowns and transformation.   People from our past will return to help us understand these current patterns.  Great relationship changes will be happening for many people.

The beginnings of the relationship shifts may be felt by some this coming week, as Venus goes into Gemini on April 3.  Venus will go retrograde in Gemini on May 15, and stay in Gemini all the way down to going back direct on June 27, and will continue in Gemini until August 7, when it goes into Cancer.

That means Venus will stay in Gemini for 4 months. Usually Venus stays in a sign for only about a month.

So with the Solar Eclipse in Gemini, the Lunar Eclipse in Gemini/Sagittarius, a second New Moon in Gemini, and Venus retrograde in Gemini, you can expect for Gemini people to most affected in the coming months.  It is time for Geminis to be on their toes, ready to move with change.

This week, as Mercury goes direct, we make baby steps forward, as the “airwaves” begin to clear.  There is a Full Moon in Aries/Libra This Friday April 6 at 3:19 PM EDT.   Our desire to move our lives forward while honoring our individual self and individual journey is paused by our need to equally honor relationship and others.

There is  powerful change coming our way soon.

See you next week,
