Keep an Open heart for learning and a focused Mind for churning the milk of the Gods; that is, truth and love.”

-robert of mayflower

  • Jan. 1st Mars oppose Jupiter gives lots of energy to socialise, party, and play. Don’t neglect your inner life, inner needs. Here too much good can make ill. Avoid over-doing, over-eating, over-drinking, or doing too many things ending up doing no one thing well. Danger of outspokenness or going out-of-bounds, breaking rules in spirit of freedom (Mars in Aquarius till Jan 12th when Mars enters Pisces). Avoid overcrowding, danger of pile ups or accident from rushing, so take it slow and easy. Good time to find renewed balance in life between self needs and others’ needs.

 

“Eventually you will learn to walk in everyone’s shoes. You can do this inwardly in your heart with compassion and with your mind in truth. Otherwise, it will take many many lifetimes to do it all physically. Choose well O Spirit Soul Pilgrim.”      -robert of mayflower

 

  • Jan. 3rd-4th-5th Sun in hard aspect to Uranus/Pluto square with Full Moon joining the affair. Extremes in the weather, storms, possible telluric (earthly) activities uptick (possible uptick in solar flares, quake, volcano, storms). Sun in Capricorn wants to keep things under wraps or in control. Inner transformations precipitate outer changes. Secret manoeuvres and possible exposure. Usually such aspects bring about stormy weather in many parts of world. Many major news events, breakthroughs, breakdowns in business but also big mergings and plans, sudden insight into politics. (As predicted long ago…it looks like Bush vs. Clinton with Jeb taking the stronger astrological edge with astrological aspects.) Many possible endings or completions and new beginnings. Good time to make necessary changes to improve future. Good time to cut out ill habits and start anew. Geo-political hotspots may be resolved or tendency to expand further. Flu reaches peak perhaps at this time and backs off. Cardinal signs and houses hit hardest for making long-term changes, or being put through changes (Capricorn, Aries, Libra, Cancer Signs and Houses, see your astrological chart). Avoid negative emotions and excessive energy that doesn’t serve your future self, your higher view, virtue, star or God. Such intense aspects escalate one’s good or bad karma…so choose to be ‘good for goodness sake’. Choose Love over anger and fear! Truth over denial. Forgiveness but not idiot compassion. The Buddha and Christ within us is not guilty, it’s the poorly attuned personality that is out of tune with the Higher Self, the Spiritual Self. Compassion, compassion, compassion, but wit and wisdom true too! This is a time when collective consensus is strongly rallied ‘for’ or ‘against’ issues and events. Important to live the life to come to deeper understanding. Working together with others for higher ideals can bring much progress at this time. Otherwise, for some, this is a frustrating time of stress, tension, and opposition. A sense of personal and planetary or ecological crisis may precipitate strong change at this time into March 2015 when the 7th and last in this series of Uranus square Pluto takes place. Geo-political hotspots flare (Putin etc.). Uranus/Pluto’s last strong aspect was mid 60’s when the two planets conjuncted, now they square by 90 degrees. The urge for freedom and sudden bursts of energy and creativity (Uranus in Aries) is challenged by Pluto in Capricorn signifying need to secure and protect, as well as danger of dictate authority and overly strong structure in attempt to lay down long-term security or control, rules and maps. Need to learn how to have power through rather than over.

 

“To make a difference, change yourself to change the world; next try to help others to help yourself. The third and highest level is to honestly act knowing at some deep place we are all one. Love your neighbour as yourself is the ideal.”          -robert thibodeau

 

  • Jan. 8th Moon in Leo conjunct Jupiter followed by Moon entering Virgo could be a day for foreseeing the future. Possible insights and visionary creative imaginations into coming year and next. The heart struggles to love and be creative in the present while the throat and forehead chakra may seem over activated in critique and analysis past and future. New views and feelings come just in time to uplift the moment, avoid un-constructive criticism or negativity. A sense of personal need to survive or to continue along with status quo. A need to move to higher game plan. Collective social needs concerning health or environment, ecology, world dilemma; need for healing self and enlightenment, food/water/air. Avoid haste and over-rushing, loose speech and irritability, over criticalness or harsh words. Good for cleaning and fixing up things. Avoid unnecessary travel. (Mars hits midpoint of Uranus/Pluto, accident aspect, sense of need to emerge from some emergency. Also one of strong direct blunt, possibly honest, speech or leaks.) Pluto opposes USA Sun gives strong feelings of opposition, shame/blame, fanatical power urges and struggles. Need for selfless observation and awareness, truth. Possible world event causing strong collective reactions. Or is it more a sense and need for rebirth of ideals, goals, sense of self in relationship to the larger social collective identity. Crisis of identity and need to protect the little ones, land and water. Sense of rooting, consolidation, empowerment, or loss of such.

 

“When confused, simplify. Eat simply, think simply, be kind. Love your enemies.”     -robert of mayflower

 

  • Jan. 12th Mars enters Pisces till Feb. 20th giving much imagination and libido energetic to dreamers and schemers. Here strong men can get weak, sentimental, passive; while the weak or over-sensitive suddenly get macho aggressive and externally demonstrative. Some women with right aspects to this suddenly get really strong and take over, rise in leadership or success, fame. For some others, loss of such. Mars squares Saturn on 15th Jan. making for many a hard bump of reality, crash landings back to reality and bottom line, along with real take on work at hand, practical needs. Sudden need to wake up and smell the coffee. Then Mars conjuncts Neptune on 19th as Venus opposes Jupiter makes for good aspects for the arts, movies, imagination, acting (even acting up), silliness, romantic escapades, and future plans, travel plans.  Although this last week can find ill timing and out of balance energies, danger to those on drugs or wrong meds; this is an exotic time of spiritual imagination, inspiration, and intuition for many. This strong aspect influencing 17th to 22nd is highly imaginative, romantic, erotic, and creative. While some may feel lost at sea (samsara’d out), for many it’s good for the arts, music, fantasy, futuristic, dreamy, or even mystical and psychic experience. Time to buy a new tarot deck? Good time to learn to be psychic, intuitively spiritual. This period of time could also prove for some to be difficult time to see clearly what is going on with self and the world, with markets and politics and behind the scenes manipulations. Being clear and above board honest is the most important thing during this time. Water and oil issues blurry. Strange illusions and delusions, weird movie and tv motifs lacking spiritual or virtue imagination, true nature. Beware of schemes to get rich quick. News may be erroneous or misleading. Need for strong practical rationality as well as clear heart felt intuitive perceptions.

 

“Beholding the tension of opposites with a wish for universal love, in time gives an equality of understanding and wisdom second to none. It’s all in the awareness and the patience of a mother giving birth. Have compassion for yourself and others, we are not enlightened. Silent witnessing is key, you are the door.” -robert of mayflower

 

  • Mercury going retrograde on 21st with Moon conjunct Mercury and Venus that day actually may help many to clear their minds and hearts as to what is the most important things to do, what has priority and inferiority as to one’s needs and futures. Fateful or karmic relationships clash with higher octave possibilities and rapport. Aquarius Mercury/Venus/Moon can make for vast ‘over reach’ and too many diffuse and varied plans. Focussing on one thing at a time helpful to completing tasks. New technologies can overwhelm or confuse. Re-troll, retrograde (apparent backwards motion) Mercury makes for reflective thinking, going over things again, going back to fix things. Also, ‘re’-calls, retro, reminders, reviews, returns, repeat, revisit, reincarnate, but recreation too. The past collides with the future as there is a greater need and tendency to immediacy, living in the present while honouring the past and future. An impatience with friends. A need for direct experience and a feeling of ‘hurry up and wait’, contrarian tendencies too. Aquarius has big plans and lots of social life. Mercury retrograde demands down time, quiet time, reflective time, contemplative time, inward pondering, and certainty of need for self and what is need of other. Aquarius wants it all now and is too busy to slow down the fast pace, tendency to be all over the place. This month something could break from such opposite tensions or extremes. Everything or nothing urge. By the time Mercury goes direct on Feb. 11th, there is a sense of how to work with others for mutual benefit and reward.

 

“If you are willing to learn, anything could happen. That openness to learn is a selfless act turning the key to the door of wisdom.” -robert of mayflower

 

  • Jan. 22nd Moon square Saturn and conjunct both Neptune and Mars gives a sense of where one is out of bounds and needs to relax, slow down, catch up or mess up. Peculiar dreams and psychic experience. Struggle between ideal and practical reality. Possibility to manifest dreams or jump into dreamy ideals for some.

 

“The apprentice knows it takes time to have a good craft. Mastering the self is key to mastering life.” -robert of mayflower

 

  • Jan. 25th Moon occultation of Uranus, sudden change of plans or direction. For some, sudden flare ups, shift of direction, emotional upset or reversals; or is it just need to go to the next higher level with new or advanced game strategy and sense of new found freedom?

 

“Expand your social circle by serving the higher self of others. This may or may not always be appreciated by others, but it insures your own spiritual and material growth.” -robert of mayflower

 

  • Jan. 30th Venus square Saturn and Sun conjunct Mercury gives time to catch up to work and love, pleasures and responsibilities. Danger of procrastination may cause problems. Yet, patience in right place can be medicine. Acute awareness of wants and desires in self and others. Possible sudden coming to light of awareness about ways to go, strive, attain, or quit struggle.

 

“Dreams are only good if they become real. As for nightmares, it’s best to leave them in the dream state.” -robert of mayflower

 

  • Feb. 1st Venus conjuncts Neptune. Ideals of love and future plans inspire one to dream on. Melting of plans. Infatuation and longing for the impossible or far away. Strong ideals in love. Psychic dreams or premonitions. Good day to buy a tarot deck or astrology or spiritual practice text.

 

“If you over eat, you will have to over eliminate. All things in balance. Fun is in stretching the balance yet keeping harmony between the inner and outer, higher and lower.” -robert of mayflower

 

  • Feb. 3rd Full Moon in Leo, Sun in Aquarius makes for strong, ‘all ahead go’, week ahead culminating in great week end 6th to 8th for those prepared to socialise or party with friends. With Full Moon on China’s Mars/Pluto conjunct look for aggressive assertiveness or angry actions or reactions for powers that be there. Clashing of swords or just strong words?

Astro News and Views – December 2014

December 1st, 2014

 

Robert of Mayflower’s Astrological & Spirited News and Views 

for December 2014. Mayflowerbookshop.com on the Web.

 

Robert of Mayflower’s Cd Release Party, a Mayflower Bookshop Affair

Dec. 5th New Way Bar in Ferndale next to OM CAFE, 8 to 11 p.m. Free.

Music and Songs. Friends such as Bob Monteleone, Carolyn Striho, Holly Bernt, Mary McGuire, Chris McCall and more coming to sing couple of songs. Fun in the Full Moon Spirit. The new CD ‘Folk Rock Love’ will be available for purchase at the party, or at Mayflower Bookshop, or on CD BABY on line.

 

The spiritual intelligence of the heart is what redeems and makes ever new the past, sees the many tendencies of possible futures, and lives forever in the presence of the present to tell the story, live the story, and live fully the life, love and wit. Be mindful of the heart, good hearted in the mind.

 

  • Dec. 1st Moon occultation of Uranus makes for restlessness, revolting or jolting wakenings, novel experience, sudden shifts or reversals or second sight looks. Aries, Libra, Capricorn, Cancer signs and houses need be patient and aware, vigilant yet quick to see sudden shifts and the subtleties of coming changes.
  • Dec. 4th into Full Moon on Dec. 6th creates atmosphere for joy and fun loving experiences. Breakthrough insights, sudden turn of fortune, good luck, fortunate purchase or sale, sudden arousal of positive force. Lucky time for love and adventure, travel and communications, peace making, or opening new doors for opportunity. Good time to get all your shopping done during first 2 weeks of December because later rough astrological weather and vibrations. Dec 15th on through Christmas rougher times and weather inwardly and without.
  • With Mars squaring the ‘Transformation Point’, there is much assertive, aggressive, transformative energy from Dec. 5th to 8th. Avoid angry, explosive, situations of high stress, avoid forcefulness unless absolutely necessary. Good time to clean things up, fix things up, be up and positive for good luck and good fortune as we plunge forward into our individualised and collective imagined futures. Much courageous activities and truth telling, fact finding, first to weeks of December.
  • Dec. 8th Jupiter turns retrograde till April 8th 2015 giving especially fixed signs and houses (Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, Scorpio) an opportunity to update, review, renew, and transform one’s appearance, social identity, fashion, and look. Possible changes in one’s ways of working and playing with money, possessions, investments, friends, lovers, and one’s own future plans. Pride and egotism could bring fall and detriment here. Fall from power for some, others retreat, review and renew, in preparation for better times coming.
  • Dec. 10th Venus enters sign of Capricorn till January 3rd. Feelings and urges for love and appreciation take on a much more practical and long-term meaning. False hopes dash and reality may crash over idealistic dreams, but the truth of who you are in the long run and forever slowing is making its way into your every day. Trust the miracle of your self reappearing again and again and again. Love will move you, truth will still you to the bone of reality; between these two is a secret you whispering in, and to, your heart.
  • Dec. 11th to 14th Moon, Mercury, and Sun aspecting Jupiter making this another fun weekend for friends, social life, gatherings, travel, making plans, meetings. One’s personal feelings and mindfulness of something greater coming up over the horizon propels this weekend into healing joy and adventurous rendezvous.  Avoid undue negativity or criticism; yet nail it in the bud if someone or something out of hand. Avoid over-reactions or angry response to bratty brash verbiage from others, with Moon in Virgo there is a tendency to take things too personally or seriously and miss the big wave unexpected joy and opportunity. Keep your eye on the star overhead and in your own heart for a deeper breath of life.
  • Night of 14th but especially Monday Dec. 15th when Uranus squares Pluto for the 6th of 7 times (March 2015 last of 7 Uranus/Pluto squares)… and through to Dec. 28th when Moon conjuncts Uranus. Expect the unexpected. Extremes and urgencies in world weather, politics, economics, and emotional relationship. Expect more protests and upsets around the world. Uranus wants truth and social justice but gets impatient for due process or karma to reach fruition. Uranus urges freedom and awareness but can rush things, be impatient and brash. Pluto wants things to go on as they were without any upset or change but can become boring and too authoritative and over demanding. Positive side of Uranus is genius and original planning, novel experience waking one up to new possibilities and opportunities. Pluto can be selfless wisdom, right view, compassion with patience to learn anew eternal verities. Pluto rules the most powerful elite, power and authority, but also rules the poorest, the bottom rung of the ladder, the underworld and secret doings. Uranus rules new technology, communications, networking, genius, upfront honest blunt. Pluto and Uranus last conjuncted in 1960s during racial riots, student unrest, antiwar sentiment, hippies and authoritative straights; and when many thought ‘flower children’s idealistic yet naive love affairs would heal the world. We can see many familiar metamorphosed concerns in comparing the ‘60s to now as Uranus squares Pluto. Uranus and Pluto work best together when there is freedom of speech, equality of spirit and soul, a spiritual sense of brother and sister, a family togetherness, and a sense of compassion and loving kindness to all life. This aspect can make for tough weather. Colder in many spots of the world, hotter in others; extremes in the weather and behaviour. Much need for patience and wise forethought before making hasty action. And for sure, for many, it’s time for a big change that is overdue. Change or be changed is another motif. Another is get smarter and raise oneself up by one’s own boot (book) straps or flow and let go and don’t complain. It is important to blame oneself for needed change. You can change yourself, hard to change others; so start there with the self. Avoid shame and blame, guilt and taking things personally. That is a distraction from getting things done. Try seeing the higher self, higher potential, the highest spiritual possibility. Feel guilty if you are not living up to that higher self, all other guilt is what we pay ourselves so we’ll do it again. All confessions are of love. All others are sham fake confessions. No shame or blame, just learning and burning up old karma. Now and later in December, early January, and March 2015 more stress and tension in war zones of the world as further Uranus/Pluto aspects complete and finalise last few years, or even what got put into motion during the 60’s. Putin Ukraine problems continue into March 2015 when much is figured out, but at what price these various struggles and wars cost to humanity, the world? We need a new breed of peace-makers and wisdom sharers. Crazy markets, politics, weather, and stressful workings during all these before mentioned times; but much opportunity to grow now.
  • Dec. 20th Possible difficult travel, harsh weather, and difficult relationships at this time. Venus conjunct Pluto triggers s few rough days through to the 28th. Good for bonding and inner attunement, but rough on those fixated on the outer world. Travel may get frustrated, as well as love life and family affairs. More scandals in news. Avoid jealousy or loving someone for who you want them to be, rather than who they are. And without true spiritual teachings (i.e. Osho, Tibetan, Rudolf Steiner, H.P. Blavatsky, Manly Hall) how we going to know who we are?!? When we don’t feel that we can control ourselves, we try to control others. Can’t love another without loving yourself. Can’t give what you don’t have. Much to learn these daze. Issues concerning love and money, mine and yours, what i want to do or you want me to do, arise. Possessiveness and jealousy issues may once again give tough learning lessons here. Such aspects also trigger splits, breakups, infighting, animosity, and personal struggles to keep what one has. A sense of dire endings and/or new beginnings. Tendency for loss or death, partings of the way, separations. For some, deep sense of super sensuality, super sensibleness, and need to cut out or re-commitment to the goal. Some learn to love deeper, making deeper commitment to self growth and learning; while others need to cut losses. Know the truth and the truth will set one free. They never say know love and you will be free. Start with Higher Truth, this will help find and protect true love. If you start with love, you may later find sour or bitter truth. Start with Truth. Truth is what holds us all. Facts and truth are often different. Truth is what invokes our higher self, our bigger self, our spiritual self. Know the Truth and the Truth will set you free. Know Love and you will find true commitment.
  • New Moon Dec 21, but also Winter Solstice and Uranus going direct from retrograde. The 15th, 20th to 25th, 28th, can lead to some pretty big changes for the world, big revelations, and creative new insights, connections, and break aways from old standards or outworn relations. Much change and rearranging going on for many. Shake out the old and in with the new you. Merry Crystals and Happy ever renewable you! Winter Solstice is the longest night and shortest day of the year. The 4 days from the Solstice to December 25th, Christmas, is a recapitulation of the four elements and 4 earth evolutions. We are now in the middle of the 4th earth. Mineral, plant, animal are the gifts of the last 3 earth evolutions. The physical, etheric, and astral body are the human evolutionary work of the last 3 earth incarnations. This 4th earth period we are on is developing a sense of ‘I AM’, the ‘Mind Stream Continuum’ of the reincarnating ego awareness (See m’book ‘Astrological Aspects, the Art’ for more insight on this). There are 3 earths to go where human beings will develop universal mind, love/compassion, and truth body or God awareness. The 12 days of Christmas beginning on Dec. 25th and ending January 6th is symbolic and representative of the spiritualising of the four fold physical/emotional/mental/ego by the trinity of Holy Father God (Eternity Space), Hermes/Christos (Mind Stream Continuum), and Holy Mother or Holy Spirit (forever change, motion, virtue, karma). Twelve being 3 times or transforming the 4. I know this is esoteric, see my book ‘Astrological Aspects the Art’ for more. The idea is to attune to living time through creating sacred space within to ponder these mysteries of self, higher self, world. It’s in all the bibles of the world if one could just interpret correctly. For the spiritually attuned person, Solstice to Jan. 6th can be a most transformative regenerative renewing time of the year. A spiritual rebirth can take place. Rudolf Steiner’s books ‘Rosicrucian Wisdom’ and ‘Outline of Occult Science’, as well as ‘Festivals of the Year’, and ‘Cycle of the Year’ can be very helpful materials to study. Also see the Bhagavad Gita, its 16 chapters (4 plus 12) can reveal much. The Gita is all Gandhi carried for his spiritual inspiration to act courageously and virtuously. I suggest the Judge and Arnold edition.
  • Dec. 23rd Saturn goes into Sagittarius till June when it retrogrades back into Scorpio. Saturn returns then to Sagittarius in Sept. till Dec. 2017. Late fixed signs and early mutable signs may feel the delays, obstructions, stuck learning lessons, or hard work of it all during these times. Much wisdom learned though, laying a better foundation or inner life in the works too. The fixed signs and houses of Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius, and Leo will work off the karma and feel the pinch of a bit of tough times, bad luck, or hard work (the last few years and a bit); but maybe its just laying back and being more patient for the positive arrival. For the next three years the mutable signs have to get more grounded and back to working on self, long-term goals. Need to be patient/enduring/’stick to it’ endeavouring and persevering. Saturn in Sage Sagittarius can bring back a sense of higher knowledge, wisdom and deeper meaning to life. You may suddenly remember what you once knew but forgot. A return to wisdom and loving insight. At first though its a sudden recognition that one hasn’t always been operating out of one’s own higher purposes and spiritual mind. Scorpio’s influence can act out of insecurity or fear, incompleteness and partiality, limitation and smallness. Saturn says there is never enough. The next 3 years should re-establish spiritual wisdom knowledge as being most important in high and low places. Hopefully we will individually and collectively start to re-think in more spiritual and virtuously holistic terms. The poet’s injunction that one cannot disturb a flower without the troubling of a star may return to everyday doings, workings. In other words, to hurt another is to, in time, hurt oneself. To love another is to love the self. We are the world, the world is ‘I’. The principles of karma and reincarnation are an important fact, and maybe the time is finally coming soon when all humanity will come to know each other as one spiritual family recycled and returning forever till the whole world is enlightened and at co-creative peace. We are on a learning curve seeking wholeness and a more creative co-creative life. Om Mani Padme Hum, May all beings find happiness and the working causes of such.
  • New Years Eve into January 1st big party over the top time. Mars opposes Jupiter during this time. Avoid excess and accident or illness due to over doing, exaggerating, over eating or drinking. Danger of egotism and waste, accident by carelessness or egotistic pride. Otherwise, fun time for sure.
  • Jan. 3rd Sun square Uranus while conjuncting Pluto on eve of Full Moon Jan. 4th Solar Flares, quake and storm time? Certainly good time to dance through the changes, find yoga solutions to enhance opportunity and chance, change and sudden rearrangements. Time to meditate, not medicate, one’s neurosis or problems away. Such aspects make for further warring and argument, triggering geo-political hotspots and hot shots. Such aspects precipitate and predict coming times, intense astrological aspects in March, when many a conflict will find final resolution and/or completion, ending, conclusion. Many a struggle and conflict finalise or end in March making for many a new begging or beginning.

  • November 4th Moon conjunct Uranus (an occultation) brings upsets, turn-arounds, reversals, many quick changes with long lasting results into our lives. Good time to begin anew, update, improve, start anew striving for one’s highest ideals to be most practically achieved. Now and in next two weeks, brings about many a change in money and politics, love and sexuality. Some are too serious and/or moody, wanting much control and/or security, others frisky and obnoxious, quirky and toxic or rambunctious. Saturn is in Scorpio wanting serious grounding and intelligent long-term relations, rationality, real inner and outer security. Some lack such. Saturn denies, Uranus can free, or is it just outraged cries of resistance to inevitable inevitables. On Nov. 12th Venus conjuncts Saturn and Mars squares Uranus. Take a long and slow look, change is coming for sure, so make the right steps toward growth and prosperity, inner sanity and spiritually profound, pure hearted futurity now. Danger of premature hasty actions, hastiness, accidents, mishaps and reactions. Power plays clash with need to play, or find time to pray, make peace, garden friends and land.
  • Crazy days for stormy weather, quakes of awakening, volcanoes of erupting emotions or new views, flooding of information, turbulent waters of emotions conflicting with thinking are Nov. 4th, 10th to 13th, 16th to 18th, 20th; give or take a day. Best days for fun and pleasure, relaxation or creative peacemaking are 9th, 11th eve, 13th eve into 14th, 20th, 22nd-23rd, 26th.
  • Dec. 5th Friday 8pm to 11pm and on—Robert of Mayflower’s CD RELEASE and Mayflower Bookshop Party at the New Way Bar in Ferndale Mi. (three and a half blocks north of 9 Mile on Woodward, next to OM CAFE). Carolyn Striho, Bob Monteleone, Chris McCall, Holly Bernt, Mary McGuire all coming to do a couple songs too to add to the magic. Robert will perform new songs off the CD! It’s gonna be fun.
  • November 6th Full Moon in practical Taurus with Sun in sensuous Scorpio accentuates need for spirituality and love to unfold together. Gently explode like a rose if lusty and young, or go with the flow to flower and go beyond your own limits for wisdom and compassion, ideals godlike and insanely real. Some experience a new dawn of higher consciousness and further adventures in sacred relationship by incorporating others to awaken higher consciousness and the wish for freedom within themselves. Here we can only help others to help themselves. Job, world sense of self, is changing. Need to let go of attachments or fixations, or danger endangering oneself to repeat troubles, feel electrocuted or magnetised to repeat offenders or repeat offences. Time for lies to be found, abusers to be bound. Truth has a good moment here to find higher reality to realise. Hang on tighter for change and better situation or opportunity, but don’t forget to open to new learning. When we fail to learn something each and every day, we go old, grow old, and lose the gold we came in with but forever have somewhere inside. So how much can you take of repeat offenders and stuck-in-the-mud thick repeats of yourself or low brow neurotics and repeat rinses trying to purify? Try something new, within yourself to grow; go where freedom allows true conversations and sharing.
  • Nov.10th into 12th Mars conjuncts Pluto and then squares Uranus. The need for truth and love, wisdom and compassion in both high and low places. The need to arrest negative tendencies and chaotic mind. Lots of stress and tensions over conflicting views. Ever-changing conditions, uncertain futures, violent or forced solutions by necessity stir uncertain reactions. Need to re-psychologize or be psychologized. Theosophy, Anthroposophy, Tibetan Buddhist Mind Training, Osho, Manly Hall: these are the ultimate psychology of the human soul striving and seeking wholeness, wellness, sanity, and enlightenment, freedom from neurosis and freedom to be, become, beness. Lack of patience and tolerance for others, lack of wisdom/compassion/wit, really take their toll in these days and surrounding days. Mars is war-like, but can be Michaelic courage and bravado for truth and wit, heroism and virtuous deeds. All astrological aspects have a higher and lower resonance. It is up to each of us to reach for the highest ideal and virtue, working to manifest or incarnate such in our daily life. Stillness meditation, watching who is watching, listening with our hearts to the bigger story within each and every one of us, is always a good start and finish to the day. (See ‘Astrological Aspects, the Art’  for further insights to higher and lower side of every astrological aspect.) Otherwise, look for stormy politics, warring factions, discursive negative emotions and thinking, anger issues, wrong calls and ill response. Such aspects make for tendencies to hasty or nasty actions and reactions. Mars in Capricorn can be very assertive and aggressive to attain aims and desires. If you know what you are doing and have a higher intention and virtuous soul, this can be a successful time for transformative endeavour and success. Time for certainty and strong action. Good time for bold strong action to get the job done, accomplish the task, further one’s aim and goal. Negatively, this time could be chaotic, crazy, violent, stormy, destructive, rough and weird for sure. Avoid shame and blame games as well as woundology psychology, repeat offenders, and perverted intentions. Bad time for fantasies and getting high, escaping, or causing others’ grief. It’s aways a bad time for that, but with such aspects one should be cleaning up things, not causing further toxic messes. The higher side is courage for truth, following a higher calling or love, persisting in one’s spiritual or inner path, working hard for goals, sacrificing now for a better tomorrow, helping those less fortunate, and cleaning up past karma. Expect possible wild turbulent times in markets, ecological troubles, vexing situations. World troubles can escalate during such stressful aspects. Need for law and order. Many fears around health, warring nations, and political  economic religious conflicts. Mars opposing, and Uranus squaring, USA Sun, does not help. U.S. may feel need to lead world to higher ethic and peace-making. Very strong response to any negative attack or criticism. Many political changes due to aftermath of mid-term elections.
  • Nov 13-14 Sun square Jupiter and then Moon conjunct Jupiter along with Nov. 16th Neptune direct gives many excuses and opportunities to escape, play, plan better future or travel, or chance to dance or romance anew.
  • Nov. 18th Serious Sun conjunct Saturn in Scorpio defines a time for serious grave matters being dealt with. Some die, some wish they were dead; others dead faced deal with money facts, bottom lines, past debt or karma. The Sun brings light to grave or serious issues. Many tough decisions need to be made to secure ground or future striving. For some sweet endings, others sour. Simple hard work and selfless striving for higher ideals need much patience and persistence at this time. Love and Sex may find it hard to meet, friendship and love ties challenged by practical needs and realities needing to be faced.
  • Nov. 20th Venus square Neptune. Foolish love dreams, money delusions, false fancies and illusions of either grandeur or impoverishment. Good for creative arts.
  • November 22nd New Moon in Sagittarius, Sun and Moon enter Sage Sagittarius with Mercury square Jupiter, look for renewal of relationships of the mind and heart working together to attain higher aims and goals. Any new ideas or projects need positive review and quick fix up before further tests, trials and tribulations, purifications. November 25th Mercury conjunct Saturn and Moon conjunct Pluto brings possible tough weather to some parts. Cold and gridlock. Good time to work on catching up to oneself. Good for meditation, yoga, self reflection.
  • Nov. 30th Mercury square Neptune dreamy illusory feverish wanting and yearnings for escape or trips to ideal places … into Dec. 1st’s Moon/Uranus which gives a quick wake up and slap of reality to some.
  • Dec. 5th from 8pm to 11pm and on. Robert of Mayflower’s CD new songs release and Mayflower Bookshop Party at New Way Bar in Ferndale next to OM CAFE. Come for the fun. Carolyn Striho, Holly Bernt, Bob Monteleone, Chris McCall, and few others coming to do a couple of songs around Robert’s performance. Call Mayflower Bookshop for more info.
  • Dec. 4th Venus trine Jupiter and Sun trine Uranus followed by Dec. 5th Mercury trine Uranus and Dec. 6th Full Moon makes for three magnificent days of creative good work and play, loving friends and much sharing, networking, good communications and connection. Good time to shop, buy, sell, play, rearrange creatively one’s present unwrapping into the future.
  • Dec. 12th into 14th Sun/Mercury in good Jupiter aspect continues the pleasant weather and good social life, merry spirits and good times.
  • Dec. 20th to 25th looks tough for weather, shopping, friends, stormy stresses and emotions with a number of Pluto aspects stressing everybody out. Good for patience and compassion in face of personal and world problems. Good time to review long-term needs, as well as one’s ‘many lifetime’ concerns.

Can’t Live Without Love

 

“Bethink, Johannes, how the One Soul must —
A personality apart from all —
Evolve from out the womb of time.
Love serves to knit together separate souls
Not kill their individuality.
The moment is upon us, when we twain
Must test our souls, and find the spirit-path
That each must follow for its separate good.”

-Rudolf Steiner’s second mystery play, ‘The Soul’s Probation’, Maria speaking to Johannes (i.e. Mary to John, wisdom to love).

 

 

“We must become conscious of a higher form of community, founded in the freedom of love among sisters and brothers as a breath of magic that we breathe in our working groups.” 

(Rudolf Steiner, Dusseldorf 15 , June 1915, Preparing for the Sixth Epoch)

-Trebore Tau Bodhi

  • Oct. 3rd into 4th Sun in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn giving strong sense of purpose or lack thereof; strong sense of leadership and assertiveness, or lack thereof. A turning point or tipping point for some. Danger of feeling attacked or rudely confronted this month into December. Positive side is need for more compassionate wisdom and understanding. Mars squaring Chiron makes for many a healing, for others re-experiencing the wound in hopes of healing. Many a maverick for freedom and truth. Avoid rash action or harsh words. (Chiron is Charon the boatman connecting the underworld to this higher world of possibility, spiritual awakening…see my book ‘Astrological Aspects, the Art’) Wisdom seems hard to come by these days. A very difficult time for Hong Kong protesters. Ebola scares, war craziness, stock markets up and down, quakes/volcanoes, war craziness in the Middle East, Ukraine, possible new spots, higher levels of radioactivity hitting California seaweed, troubling times right into Oct. 8th Full Moon. On the positive side, great time to make positive changes inside out, updating, getting rid of stuff you don’t use or need, learning to learn in new ways. Time to renew our sense of a holy planetary consciousness, a common world humanity linked together by the higher angel of truth and love, wisdom and compassion. A strong striving for renewal and power. Some feel the opposite of rising up, they feel like going down. A need to submit or surrender. Ego trips need be curbed, laying low to mend or renew. A need to turn inward and consider long-term ramifications and commitments, as well as need to plow onwards in showing up, working, working on oneself, striving for the mission, goal, aspiration, or aim. Difficulty traveling? Life and death, taxes, money concerns? Doing deep research? Re-thinking past and future? Mercury turns retrograde on 4th in Scorpio going back into Libra till the 25th giving many a sense of having to return to something, having to rethink goals, workings, aims, values, to include others, or to work better with others. Many tire of struggling alone and look for special others to team up with, work with, align with. Past relationships gone astray or wrong, may heal now, but avoid further conflict, struggle, breaking away in rough way. With Lunar eclipse on Oct. 8th in Aries and Solar eclipse at 0 degree Scorpio on 23rd, Scorpio and Libra planets most affected with re-think of money and friends/family; but all fixed signs of Taurus, Aquarius, Leo; and the cardinal signs of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries also strongly feeling this need for renewal, re-think, renew, review, restore, revamp, re-work, and re-evaluate. Cardinal signs may feel at breaking point, or that something has to give. Some are quickening and ascending to the higher level, others are cracking up or breaking down when breakthroughs don’t appear fast enough. Many surprises and sudden events, shocks, reversals and turn-a-rounds round Full Moon on Oct 8th. December 15th Uranus square Pluto and December 21st Uranus direct, now till then lots of changes for cardinal planets and houses – see your chart. See note at end. (Mayflower sells good astrological software for your computer if you want to dive in to understanding your and others’ charts better.) At any rate, take care of starting new ventures or signing papers with Mercury retrograde from Oct 4th to Oct 25th. Many miscommunications and lack of accurate information, unless of course, Mercury and other transits make good aspect to rest of your chart.Seems like the world is going through a spiritual climacteric, awakening, realization.
  • Oct 5th Mars trine Uranus with Moon conjunct Neptune, many shoot for the stars with most high ideals, not all of which may be practical. Lots of strong speech and many a new idea to jump start or restart, reboot, projects. Start with truth if you want love to last. Wisdom comes first before compassion or compassion endangers itself to be idiot compassion, impotent to really help. Start with love and one may end up with bitter truths. Start with Truth, the big truth holds us all, and love will be protected, nourished, safe guarded.
  • Oct. 5th at noon – a memorial bench dedication to Gail Schmidt by the work of Kathy Kosins and friends will be installed. Mary Kay Davis Park in Huntington Woods, come join some of Gail’s friends for the event.
  • Oct. 7th into 8th, Quake and shake, radical upsets, alarm, change of direction, hazardous conditions, sudden rearrangements, sudden rise or fall from power, danger of violence, protest craziness, upsets, reversals, overthrow of power. Strong actions and reactions in markets, geopolitical hotspots. Technology breakthroughs and breakdowns. Freedom and truth fight for rights, call for compassion, wisdom to sail through tough waters. Explosive volcanic activities and emotions. Strong shifts and changes in political economic strategies. Big shake ups or changes in geopolitical hotspots. Much tension around Putin in Russia. Does he rise up and peacefully find solutions in harmony with rest of world, or is this a major crisis and possible loss of power? Financial markets can be testy and crazy for a moment here. Sun in Libra oppose Uranus, Full Moon Eclipse in Aries on 8th. Some relationships go bonkers. With Venus square Pluto on 8th, much reason to feel compassion for suffering and repressed. Need to protect little ones, nature, children. Mars in Sagittarius trine Jupiter in Leo rouses much straight talk, honest reckoning, bold and courageous acts and initiatives, selfless deeds of heroism, generosity, good will.
  • Oct 10th-11th, Venus oppose Uranus, sudden change of plans, sudden tensions or release of tensions, sudden arousal of artistic spirit, wild abandon and adventure. Sudden coming together or breaking apart. Short outbursts of emotions or artistic creativity.
  • Oct 15th Sun conjuncts North Node, Venus conjuncts node on Oct17th. Strong unions and love affairs of the heart. (for some dis-union, disillusion or break offs). But for many, strong attractiveness and holy bonds of friendship, love and higher truth. This is heavy month for artists, creative genius, lovers, high romance, the Grail, social cultural highs. Although many a relationship may be short lived, many strong bonds and alliances of love, friendship, business, community, being formed. Eris and Sun opposing on 15th giving more strength to both love and war. Need for higher reason, angel, and peace to prevail. May it start within every heart, a revolution of peace and love, harmony upon all the earth.
  • Oct 16th Sun conjunct Mercury, Intense clear thinking, speaking, actings, awakening, knowing, sense of presence. A sense of knowing and understanding empowers right action. Good time to ponder, contemplate, meditate, figure out, re-configure. A sense of proportion and beautific vision.
  • Oct. 17th Mercury conjunct Venus, Moon conjunct Jupiter, good sense of sunshine heart and mind, meeting of heart and mind, feelings and thinking in harmony with the world, others. A gathering of angels, insights, friends.
  • Oct 19 comet goes by Mars. Interesting possible syncronicity and connections, breakthrough, avoid over-asserting oneself.
  • Oct. 20th Venus sextile Mars, Mercury sextile Jupiter, Moon in Virgo; let love and loving kindness, compassion for others struggle, for one’s own striving, win. Don’t let critical mind see fault in everything bringing self and others down. Express, don’t repress, but be positive. Divine the divine in self and other. Let someone love you.
  • Oct. 22nd Moon occult Mercury, into 23rd Solar Eclipse in Scorpio with Moon eclipsing (occulting) Venus and Sun. Big changes for some, now into Election time Nov. 4th. What we love and appreciate is changing. Deeper feelings and universal inklings strengthen many a resolve to do something good for the world. Many awaken to higher ideals, ethics, imagination, inspiration, intuitions the next couple weeks. Strong sense of the arts, movies, music, and shifting sands of politics. Is it time to read HP Blavatsky yet? The most amazing women spirit soul of the last 500 years! Read Osho? Steiner? Gelek Rinpoche or Gyatso? Mayflower Bookshop is ready for your spiritual research quest and questions. Many new Malas and bells in!
  • Things get weird Oct 23-24th as Venus leaves Libra going into Scorpio along with Sun and Moon in Scorpio…..weather and emotions get very serious and intensely metamorphic.  Or is it that suddenly everything is sensuous and disturbingly feeling wise, internally transformative. Saturn and Pluto in mutual reception is a little bit protective of long term goals and laying long term foundations for the good, true, and beautiful.
  • Oct. 24th into 25th Sun conjunct Venus in Scorpio makes for strong persuasive magnetic charm and the love vibration. Strong feelings of love or strong feelings of being burned by love. Flying too close to the Sun? Good time to love others, help others, share with others. Oct 25th Mercury goes direct and the brain get clearer. Oct 23rd to 28th Love is in the air, water, lips and kisses, good food and friends. With Mercury going direct in Libra, many activating their love ideals into actions, their long-term plans and far reaching goals into action. Many a mystic happy happening.
  • Oct 26th Mars goes into Capricorn until Dec. 4th initiating a very aggressive and assertive goal reaching effort for many. Mars in Capricorn can really beat the horse to victory. Avoid over doing it. Being too aggressive, angry, or assertive can lead to accident, defeat, or breakdown. Strong leadership impulses prevail. A need to lay down the law, the rules, the goals, define the work. Good for disciplining oneself to success.
  • Oct 27th into 28th Venus and Sun trine Neptune, strong ideals of love, romance, travel, future planning. Spiritual and psychic happenings, comings and goings, births, conceptions, interesting deaths this month into end of year. Symbolically at least. ‘Die Daily’ -St. Paul. Native American Indians would say ‘Today is a good day to die’. Kind of a men’s club wisdom. The Goddess Great says ‘Be born again daily’.
  • Nov. 4th aspects make for assertive aggressive tactics, sudden reactions and reversals, surprises, and leaps for change.
  • Nov. 10th Mars conjunct Pluto and on Nov. 12 Mars squares Uranus, Mars is opposing USA Sun and Uranus is squaring the USA Sun. Scary stuff. A real need to make peace with the world, stop all wars, create a world economy that allows for peace, education, food and shelter, the necessities of life for all human beings. The world wildlife and honey bees, oceans are dying. We suffer from lack of love and wisdom to be emulation models for a new world of peace and love. December 2014 into January 2015, Pluto is squaring USA Sun. The good ol’ USA is being challenged to awaken the Higher Self, the United States of Ananda, Bliss, Happiness and Higher Consciousness, Compassion, Peace, Wisdom and Loving Kindness. Otherwise there is a morbid sense of dis-aster, missing one’s star, one’s destiny and higher purpose. The danger is that the world is changing faster than we are growing spiritually and morally. We are challenged by war, poverty, disease, climate change, greed, ignorance and delusion. We are going through a challenging time to awaken anew our spiritual genius. Such aspects make for a coming into power for some, loss of power for others. November 10th when Mars conjuncts Pluto to Nov.18th when Sun conjunct Saturn, we may get heads up forewarning of what is to come … tough weather, storms, politics, economics, quake/volcano, or whatever … a strong wake up time to get serious about what matters. A need for good strong leaders. Strong weather and storm time possible. Also Nov. 25th-26th stormy or strange weather and psychic vibe. The last Uranus square Pluto signifying ever changing weather, politics, mass discontent, freedom urges vs. long-term security needs, constant need to emerge from emergencies, general unrest and critical thinking is March 16, 2015. The Jupiter trine Uranus recently, and another come early March, gives many of us a creative spirit to try new things and new ways of thinking, feeling, willing enabling a more noble spirit and ethic to emerge for peace and love, joy. May all beings find happiness and enlightenment, and the causes of happiness and enlightenment.

Must books to read to strengthen and empower your journey: Anything by Manly Hall, H.P.Blavatsky, Rudolf Steiner, Osho, Gelek Rinpoche, Kelsing Gyatso, Ohsawa, Michio Kushi, Kristen Turner. See my talk on Meditation and love and relationships on Youtube.

“Astrology is the movement of cosmic harmonies within the inharmonious, love within the world.” -robert of mayflower

 

  • August 1st to August 8th cracks the whip for love adventures as Venus (love) and Mars (thruster rockets) boost the energetic of summer fun, socializing outdoors and meetings with friends. Many break-ups and endings portend many new beginnings with a flair for not making the same mistakes twice. Don’t let routines capture you. What if you were free, what would you do? Although the aspects seem worthy of fun and new adventure, take care not to lose practical grounding and long-term vision, goals. Fun takes strange bends and turns late night of August 8th, but particularly August 9th and 10th. It’s then that the Full Moon (fool moon) in Aquarius triggers aspects to black moon Lilith (wild girl sensuality) with Saturn (firm stern security needs). Some dig in for the long run and are conservative in demands. Others flirt with danger and creative edge. First week in August (and in October) critical timing for geo-political hotspots, warring factions, egotistic and demanding people. Critical time for politics and economics, Middle East and other hot spots such as Putin and Russia. Attempts to bring harmony to world up and down. Some jeopardise further progress and endanger self and others. A need here for wisdom and long-term strategies to curb excessive abuses and grandiose notions of power over others rather than power through others. Learning to Divine the Divine in each other and love all God’s creation is in critical need of repair these daze.
  • August 9th and 10th, Full Moon. Need to focus on long-term goals cutting out repeat offenders or negative elements obstructing clear path ahead. This time reveals the need to reassess one’s relationship to teachers and teachings, students and what’s stewing, friends and enemies. Time to discriminate real from unreal, truth from illusion. What to cherish and what to let go, what to learn or newly grasp, what is just lower self grasping at straws and what is higher self, higher virtue, more ennobling. Sun squares Saturn while conjuncting Lilith. Discipline self or others try to discipline or limit you. Shaky weather and storms, extremes in different parts, force a more conservative back step and retreat to see things more clearly. Some form new long-term allegiances, others end long-term relationships or commitments. If you feel your life and relations are shaky, this is a good time to duck out and hide, or deal directly and honestly. Good time to meditate, pondering the sacredness of quiet aloneness, health and solitude, life and breath. Saturn tends to quickly cool, or go to hot extremes. There is a need here of knowing what to keep and what to cut out. Here the bold knight for the Grail meets a split road, a decision must be made by week’s end as to which way and what, who.
  • Aug 14th Moon conjunct Uranus, a good day to wake up anew to what’s up. Smell where the fresh coffee is coming from as well as see who’s making it and who’s not. Such aspect makes for good magic of change. Many a quick change artist and economic turn is at fast play. Coming weekend brings many leaps of faith and attempts to dream and jump into new unknowns. Many shoot for imaginary moons. Some kiss and touch the impossible possibility, the spiritual reality, true love, joy, creativity. Many leap and fall, back to reality. By Monday 18th to 21st, love and joy overwhelms sombre cold reality and reality tries to return the favour. Take care not to leap into fantasy, illusion, false paths. Or is that what you are needing, artistic creative play, escape, imaginative adventure? Discern desire vs. need. Truth and facts give you clear notion of what still needs work on, what is true and realistic goals . False ideals may mislead your directive later in evening of 18th. Magical dreams may reveal future but need practical interpretation.
  • Mars trines Chiron August 22nd into 23rd, Do you feel like you are getting healed and made whole, or do you feel like you are getting waylaid or wounded again? Avoid repeat offenders and old familiar patterns and ruts. Try new learning, new ways of playing, co-creating. Help those less fortunate for ground level view renew. Good time to go on a renewing rejuvenating regenerative journey. Such aspects strongly give emotions and feelings of connection, or is it a need to part ways. Special intuitions and messages from dreams, psychic encounters. Time of spirit soul magic, and courageous energetic for doing what matters most. What you desire the most is in view if you are brave enough and courageous enough to honestly work and strive for it. God helps those who help themselves. Action speaks louder than words at this time. Renewing energies abound. For some the opposite may occur, degenerative negative breakdowns and noise pollution. Eat healthy at this time.
  • New Moon 25th August into the 28th, Next two weeks many new attempts to clean up, heal up, fix up, work out, try out, cut out, and play out. A crisis of freedom and love needing to find sure ground. Need to feel secure to love, and need to secure freedom to love. Time of making tough decisions for long-term happiness. Taking risks at this time could be critical mistake. Good for weaving one’s way into holy spiritual community. Possible sudden arousal of creative forces followed by dull let down. Need to see progress on long-term works to prove oneself true. Earth life is the proving ground for our higher self, virtue self. A crisis of work and responsiveness to crisis or critical concerns. Important to stick to the point and not get lost or go astray. Avoid false lures to unknown futures. Danger of undigested experience repeating the past. Some may feel like ghosts hunting or haunted by ghosts of unfinished business. The new clashes with the old. Need some Sage or Sage Spray from Mayflower to change the vibration, purify the space?! Venus conjunct Black Moon Lilith during this time adds subtle super sensuousness and engaging erotic intrigue. Eros is really the universal erotic, it’s what gives us that personal sensuous connection to the whole of life, the universe; the universe to our most personal moments. The higher love, universal big love, meets the everyday need for touch, connection, eroticism, polity of polarity, engaging people and situations. Here some feel the need for the ‘other’ to reflect us, touch and be touched, arouse and meet, permeate and interact, creatively speaking.
  • August 29th’s Sun oppose Neptune brings unusual encounters of the imaginary. Art meets science in such a way that religion is transcended in direct experience. Many take a critical turn or return to simple values here, others leave the simple for the most advanced mapping and touring escapades. Some may astral project to imaginary moons. Others rudely awaken to reality. One may yet further confuse the issues at hand by false hopes or imaginings, over investment or projection. Or is it just time to let go, find a good fun loving friend to escape with! Take care not to overdose on life. Too much of a good thing is bad, sours, spoils, Good for the arts and music but wildly wasteful or ‘crazy-go-nuts’ if one is not careful. Take care to eat good healthy food avoiding what may have spoiled or become toxic. Confusion or loss in travel. Try not to spoil yourself unless in the most healthy healing spiritual and artistic way.
  • August 31st afternoon Moon in Scorpio a good day to catch up to a little sleep and rest. Some go to extremes in behaviour, others catch up with past. Avoid anger and entanglements negative on that last night of August into September 1st. Labor Day Moon into Sagittarius throws you into the big sky open wide creative universe of opportunity and over the top ideas and plans.
