Divining the Divine, the Psychological and Spiritual Interpretation of the Tarot Cards,

This Thurs March 8th

at Birmingham Community House

Call them to reserve your seat!


Each of us is a stained glass window

memoried insights from many lives,

each of us a thought divine, an altar,

a universe, woven in joy and woe,

a cathedral within which we shine

love to the world

and lessons wrought in gold.

in order to transform itself in us,

long before it happens.”

March 1st-2nd Venus/Mercury trine Jupiter, Full Moon on 1st in Virgo oppose Neptune. Feelings and mind attempt to join hands in making relationships work but greater forces of the world may throw funny cogs in the wheel for still yet bigger things to come. Many wear rose colored glasses and may take a bit of time to come to practical realities.  Yet the Virgin possibility and pure intent meets chaotic craziness of the world bringing possible storms to the inner and outer life. The best liar lies to self. Honesty’s door is true nature of self. Some over idealistic ‘i can do it all’ dreaming into one’s own projections, and wispy amours. Critical mass breaking melting point meets attempt to try it anyway. Many delays in full discovery and honest attainment. Much is possible but stay practical. Many travel or future plans being made now and in next couple weeks..Love communications, networking, connectivity feelings, heart and mind coordinate, unite in common goal, communions, future states, healing of past, hooking up to right vibe. Danger of over doing good thing or taking risk perhaps but over all good days to make positive things happen. This idealistic expansive mode carries into Sunday’s Sun conjunct Neptune, Venus conjoined Mercury, into Wednesday March 7th Moon conjunct Jupiter. My talk on divining the divine Thurs March 8th at Birmingham Community House, 7 to 9 pm. Call em to reserve yr seat.

March 4th Sun conjunct Neptune may spin yr head or spin you ahead. Liars lie, mystics mystic, dreamers dream, few remember to forget it when it comes to things that don’t work. Truth will out, but it takes time, few have faith or mind to divine the divine. Fathom what works and direct yourself to it. Many a fake or illusionary path appears, few materialize dreams. Most float away…..Don’t trust the news or facts when Sun/Neptune appears; yet much magic and mystical happenings abound. Truth is what really works, what lands the mind to heart, hearts the divine in all.

Good time to write, journal, make plans, avoid locking into things that won’t really happen in time. On the other hand, good time to dream on if you have nothing else. See Osho’s Book of Secrets, or Steiner’s Path to Self Knowledge, or Manly Hall’s Journey to Truth, or Gelek Rimpoche’s anything, or Plotinus, Swami Yogananda, or Initiation into Hermetics by Bardon, or Self Healing Cookbook by Turner. So many happy roads! Why pick poor ones?

“Love is such a priceless treasure that you can buy the whole world with it, and redeem not only your own but other people’s sins. Go, and do not be afraid.”  -Dostoyevsky

March 8th Jupiter goes retrograde till July 10th, then jupiter goes direct mid Scorpio at mid degrees This is where Pluto made Perihelion in 1989 and is the midpoint of Galactic and Super Galactic Center. in ‘89 the Berlin Wall fell down. Will the Mexico/USA Wall fall then or come out of dream projection to really be built? Many of us trying to build or take down walls, eh? Also two days later in July Solar Eclipse in Cancer throwing USA in the lime light as world leader or world loser (depending on honest virtue upfront doings both individually and collectively, or lack of it. Many a love retards growth in this period, expect reversals, or backtracking to fix, new leaks and problems esp in time of retro and direct. Confusions or changes in taxes, banking rules/procedures, interest rates, markets, investments. A sense of wanting security in insecure situations, feeling insecure in midst of security. A reviewing sense of what one really desires or fears and how that affects one’s health and wealth, happiness and destiny, future.

“Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”

-Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

March 10th-11th Mercury square Saturn Good for accounting, figuring out patiently the facts or having to face the facts of how things really work or not. This aspect can be stressful if one doesn’t have true view or if one lacks honest self assessment and position in life. It can also make one uptight or angry or control freaking. When we can’t control or make right judgement of self, we do it to others avoiding self work and self realization. Impotent perceptions abound. Mars trine Uranus on the other hand wants truth and breakthrough events even if at the expense of breakdown or running over others with our own selfish interest. Here too is a sense of wanting to let go of the past and risk the future. Tues. 13th’s Venus square Saturn may knock common sense into some holding a the longer view at heart, perhaps. Need for good bottom line and concentration of work at hand. Many in getting over concerned with what others are up to, miss seeing the need to clean up their own house and self. Still there is a sense of spring in the air of the heart for more warmth and love, joy. All work and no creative play may stifle some during this time. Others play too much and are blind to their own karma in the making.

“What is hell? I maintain that it is the suffering of being unable to love.”


What is love, i say painting in imagination and will, a world includes us all!   -robert of mayflower

March 13th Venus square Saturn, Love the one you’re with, even if they don’t love you? Challenging times of love. Looking for lasting goodness and appreciation. Patience to attain or manifest sense of higher value and virtue. Need to Love and have compassion for the little ones, everyone. Jesus and Buddha never said you had to like ‘em, just love ‘em,  unconditionally and with wisdom and compassion! Seek the infinite and art the finite. Learn to see the eternal in the passing moment, the passing moment attuning to the more eternal. Love all things, everything yearns to flower, universalize. Find divine purpose in part conversing to whole, whole to part. For creativity, study the fabric of your boredom. Nothing in nature is bored or jobless other than a human being at times. Some lost their cosmic connection. These are some ways to rethink Venus/Saturn vibes. Go for the long run, be here now, be still and know, have patience or be a patient, make virtue mind training and mayflower bookshop books the spiritual soul gardening doctor. For some getting hit by this aspect, love comes late but with much wisdom and appreciation. For others love come too early, quick and fast, suffers quick cooling off at this time. Venus/Saturn can find truth, beauty, love, and wisdom that lasts through time touching eternity divine. Find that. Let go of the small stuff, look for the big sky behind every situation, heart and mind soul. Otherwise, patience patience patience. Either we are the spiritual medicine doctor or the patient needing patience. Sun trine Jupiter gives a feeling for deeper or more vast love needing practical realistic day to day approach rather than forever waiting. Its a community builder identifying with larger collective picture, wanting everyone to be happy.

“The more stupid one is, the closer one is to reality. The more stupid one is, the clearer one  is. Stupidity is brief and artless, while intelligence squirms and hides itself. Intelligence is unprincipled, but stupidity is honest and straightforward.”  -Dostoyevsky.

New Moon March 17th with Mars entering Capricorn makes demands for immediate results and pushes others to take a stand. Avoid force here but many feel such. Such aspect demands high perfection and exactness. High ideals want or demand assertive and more aggressive approach to manifesting results, not dreams. A need here to get real dropping false dreams and hopes for impossible or fruitless futures. For some a need to retreat or contemplate, meditate, before taking strong action. Passive aggressive and aggressive passive weird moves may mar the rest of the month if one is not carefully clear and precise with word and deed. Need to make practical ideals and dreams, projections and expectations. Here, no expectations, no let downs. If you are full of expectations and needs for others to do this and that for you, watch out! The balloon may pop, deflate. Mars in Capricorn can be greedy selfish forceful. But can also push others to succeed! If other planets don’t support endeavors and adventures, investments, we enter rough time till mid may when Mars enters Aquarius, where events and doings will seem more fair or positive in result for all concerned. Well, what’s new? Positive side is that some find deeper roots to root in, higher truths, love, holds us all.

“Life is paradise, and we are all in paradise, but we refuse to see it.”


Nirvana and Samsara, heaven and hell, are at the same time, place and space; it’s a question of the mind to see such! .   -rt.

March 18th to 20th Venus and mercury unite giving spiritual loving mindful tone to time of the spring equinox on 20th; influencing perhaps next 3 months. Heart and Mind seek balance to awaken Spirit Soul, Wisdom Compassion, Love and Wit, to join up as force for good true beautiful. Many positive plans result during this time when mindful hearts flower spirit wise. Many suffer or pleasure Spring Fever here.

“I can see the sun, but even if I cannot see the sun, I know that it exists. And to know that the sun is there – that is living.” -Dostoyevsky

March 22 Mercury goes retrograde in mid Aries (going backwards in the astrological zodiac to early Aries) to New Moon April 15th squaring Saturn along the way. Some too head strong, forcing others into coldness. Some give you (or themselves) a headache. Some intellectually carry boulders and heavy loads unbearable up hill only to keep rolling back. Others garden where they are not projecting on others, make headway. Need for deeper clear thinking, practicality in the face things, more patience allowing space for and self and other to be true to present situations. For some a sense of continual grinding and struggle to achieve. Here an alchemy of power, intellect, and force grind the wheels of time. Some feel stuck, blocked, or welded to karma. Wisdom and compassion for others brings bigger picture into view. Caring for the little ones and small things in immediate environ is key to moving through this Mercury retrograde. Take special care and clear thinking around paper work, taxes, accounting, contracts, speculative investments, and more. Aries is ruled by mars, ruler of cars and guns. Cars, Guns, rockets, projections, futures, all continue to have a very serious rethink, review and hard analysis. Aries can negatively overpower head forces, thoughts, bringing heartless speech or action. With Mercury retrograde, let go of your breath and slowly breathe deeper. Take heart to ponder more harmonious ways of working with self and other integrating day to day with long term goals.

“You will burn and you will burn out; you will be healed and come back again.”  -Dostoyevsky

“They have succeeded in accumulating a greater mass of objects, but the joy in the world has grown less.”  -Dostoyevsky

March 23rd Venus square Pluto. Tough or dreary weather rest of month? Scandals in high places, lack of integrity and ethics top down? Corporatocratics and plutocrats lack of wisdom and selfish greed making you feel sick? Time to pull weeds, clean house, out with what doesn’t efficiently work or prove results? Pluto can give feeling of rejecting or being rejected, need to part, feelings of stuck. Avoid power plays and tricks to get desires wished. Call for patience to others suffering, loss, departing, separations. Tough time to die. Many difficult lessons being learned at this time.Tendency to be so sweet it spoils one’s bite for life. Or is it, things are not sweet enough and way to bitter to take? Need to see struggle and striving of each soul for enlightenment and happiness that lasts. Deeper sense of connection for those attuned to a theosophy of life.

March 24th Sun square Mars. Gun issues and violence is again forefront. Assertive energy good or bad to get one’s way or make one’s point. Forced realizations. Those who love and those who hate clash. Women’s rights, ecology, good and ‘evi’l’ clash. Danger of accident and precipitation of anger and hate with this aspect. Yet also an aspect of heroics and courage for truth and love and the higher american way of universal peace and love, freedom.  Issues of ecology, feminine rights, equality, little ones, prevail.

“The world stands on absurdities, and without them perhaps nothing at all would happen.”         -Dostoyevsky

March 26 to 28th Venus/Uranus conjunct. Sudden surge of creative force or love instinct. Revelations sudden facts emerge. Such aspect quickens and sparks higher genius at times, but also can stir quick reactions and opposition, protest. Influences quick jolting actions and  play, a quickening of head strong instinct. Sudden plans or rearrangements. Ultimate aspect for ‘As fast as they come/fast as they go’. Upsurges of creative energetic for whatever will fly your boat and give wings to the moment. For some, sudden upsets; for others magical moments. Venus/Uranus is a love protest, a protest for love, and wild adventures reaching beyond limits of self. Perhaps danger here of taking things too far, pushing to hard.

Prayer is talking to God, meditation is listening. Spiritual Practice is letting life come to you just as it is, raw and real; responding with initial primordial stillness, listening and then thinking, speaking, acting the stillness listening again. The past comes at us, the future awakens within. Inner stillness is darkness not yet come to light, infinite potential and grounding insight. Listen now, be present; the future and past are changing as we look!

-robert of mayflower

When fear and hate shift into learning, life and higher love, wisdom and compassion, arise from the heart. The lack of true understanding  of karma and reincarnation in spirit, soul, and body holds up one’s individual and collective karma. Either one is thrown into the present situation for learning. or one volunteered and is on cosmic spiritual mission. Choose! Healing, education, midwifing revolution of consciousness is before you here now!

-Trebore Tau Bodhi

March 29th Sun square Saturn. We are either uniting everyone we know weaving higher virtue and self into community or family, friend; or we are separating everyone in a conscious or unconscious move of ego to divide and conquer. steal the sugar into a corner. Few see the future being created with each thought, feeling, act.  Saturn makes for wisdom that comes through time, securing base and foundation; or it leaves one isolated alone and cold. For some a cold splash awakens. Some hit with sudden reality shake up. For others still, is it oil on the fire and new old flare ups? Hot temper, poor conduct, impatient weird power plays? Sudden light on dark places? Need for law and order and courtly procedure? Important to stick to true and tried and obey the laws of the land with this aspect. Good time for yoga and meditation, reflection and contemplation for sure. Kind of a hospice time for the soul. For some a need to discipline or control something out of hand or unwieldly. Compassion needed for those forlorn and broken. Patience and perseverance when it comes to what’s true to one’s heart or good for us all.


March 31st Full Moon in Libra square Saturn/Mars.  Need to hold tension of opposites till conflicting views resolve. Possible lack of fatherly wisdom and protection of little ones and less fortunate. Need to honor hard working ones holding the bottom. Need for wisdom and true love for all at the top. Light of wisdom and encrusted authority, true love/compassion vs greed/egotism/selfishness at odds here. Many have strong strong view, authoritative take on things, not allowing others to have their own view or freedom of expression that they themselves demand. Give the freedom you want, give the love you want, give the workability and space you want.

When we raise ourselves through meditation to what unites us

with the spirit, we quicken something within us that is eternal

and unlimited by birth and death. Once we have experienced

this eternal part in us we can no longer doubt its existence. We need to directly experience the divine, the infinite possibility of self and other. Meditation is this way of knowing and beholding directly

the eternal indestructible, essential center of the universe in each other.

-Trebore Tau Bodhi

March 31 Big Full Moon after Equinox on March 20th portends of many an ending and new beginning, many an enchantment and many a cooling off or conclusion, completion perhaps. For some, a spanking new sparkling and turn of events. For some, a return to cool calm common sense reality.

“Be not forgetful of prayer. Every time you pray, if your prayer is sincere, there will be new feeling and new meaning in it, which will give you fresh courage, and you will understand that prayer is an education.” -Dostoyevsky

April 1st Sun conjunct Mercury. Sudden wakefulness and awareness of what is true or not for self or other. Quake or stormy days last week and coming week in many parts of world. Testing times. Sudden realizations, mental alertness. Solemn changes, deaths and rebirths last weeks and weeks to come.Hopefully mid April changes for the more positive and spring like love joy rising weather. Look to the intelligence of the heart and deeper intuitions to guide you when the head is overwhelmed. Avoid anger and impatience which only exacerbates difficult situations. Give healthy space to tense moments and practice your prayers and mantra. Attune the mind to universal truth, hermetic wisdom, the mayflower bookshop! Live your highest dream today.

“Its not God that I don’t accept, Alyosha, only I most respectfully return him the ticket.”

‘The Art of Meditation’

A combination of techniques from positive thinking to self realization, secret insights into the nature of Self, Higher Self and World from all the great sages and pages of World History, mystic and religious spiritual thought.

“Astrology is the Science Art of what is possible, probable, realizable, and imaginable. The Earth gives us our body, the stars give us our intelligence. The spiritual heart gives us our fire for truth, spirit soul the  waters of compassion. Only we can give ourselves freedom, love, and a true knowing, a belonging and participatory mind for the SELF,  the World.”
– robert of mayflower

Hi Friends,

Just back from hanging out with astrological spiritual friends in Sedona and Phoenix, Arizona (where I was born)! Played my songs in dozens of places including Vortex Areas and cool music bar scenes. Also had fun chatting with other astrologers about my concerns of transiting Saturn oppose USA Venus and Jupiter possibly bringing severe colder weather, drop in stocks and economy, feelings of lack of love and lustre, and chill to the positive vibe. Good for yoga, meditation, re-centering, looking for the true and blue, and finding the wisdom that only time and soul maturity can bring. My luck continued in predicting Michigan State Game, and the SuperBowl; such predictions always get me free dinners and drink; Ha Ha,  Aha!

Perhaps the sleeper aspect some missed is the present Sun conjunct a major black hole at mid Aquarius whole conjunct the South Node at midpoint between Neptune/Pluto, making for either big time loss or big time gain when it comes to ‘ego,’ money, fame, connection, friends, sense of belonging, and making sense of things. For some its a release of ego or projects, projections, and desires. For others its just seeking release or let go. Positively its spiritual ego accessing and assessing world situation and individual responsibility to such. A real sense of have and have nots, rich and poor, educated and not educated, connected or disconnected is pervasively and persuasively occurring. Good aspect for deeper thinking, release of tension, and bringing new light to old situations.

For many it is an angelic call, a Higher Self calling, a divine intervention or voice, or intuitive feel, that its time to raise the consciousness, purify the astral etheric bodies, get attuned to the World Wide Shift taking place leading us into the great Jupiter Saturn conjunction coming up in 2020 when true Spiritual Forces from the Spirit of the Sun in the individual and collective human heart will emerge anew to strengthen the impulse for brotherly and sisterly love, world peace, world cooperation, and a sense of renewed Spirit Truth. Compassionate mutual understanding and the wisdom of all things will renew our passion for living. This will also be a time when the human being will arise anew to combat ahrimanic ignorance and delusions blocking true ‘self-knowledge’ and universal mind/heart.

The Sun/South Node at midpoint between Neptune and Pluto is a planetary awakening to what is happening to all of us. It is an impulse to renewal and renewed inner promise to attune to a greater Oneness, beauty and good, a greater sense of direction in life. Now is the time for the courage only universal truth and love can arouse to dare live the highest good, true, beautiful possible. Each of us is an artist of the divine will. Each of us a musical instrument for a greater song weaving through every heart, soul, mind. Each of us can be the breath of a holy life, a divination of the divine in all things. Each of us is a holy truth breathing life, each a holy love shining. If there is no ‘God’ active in this universe, let us become such virtue mind heart. May it begin with me.

ps. the Saturn transit oppose Jupiter in USA Sagittarius Rising Chart hits exactly Feb. 12th Monday. Such aspect due to retrograde motion comes back two more times this year! More eco and economic troubles, legal troubles in high places? Or does Saturn’s ‘Wisdom that comes only with time’ bring a more stable state of affairs, economics, politics, back into the picture. Time will tell. Astrology is the science art of possibility, possibility, and tendency. Each aspect has a higher and lower octave in which out of individual freedom we can rise or fall, transcend or more fully incarnate into. See my book ‘Astrological Aspects, the Art’ for more.

‘The ultimate wish is the wish for Enlightenment;
live the life to know the teachings,
love all life to know the world.’

Astrology News

Astrology News (aspects can have influence days before and after, dates given are exact hits).

Feb. 4th Venus square Jupiter

Expanding love/friends circle and network. Creative juices flow. Stay focused to get things done. Some get lost. Some play cards out. Some just play.

Feb. 10th Sun Square Jupiter, Venus enters Pisces

Desire to flow, go, show up, play, game, socialize, joy. Capricorn Moon 9:21 EST puts limits to growth and sets time to matter. Venus in Pisces sets in motion rest of month into March, a feeling of wanting soft landing, wanting not to fight, need to flow, follow feelings and intuitions, psychic impulses and sparklings of new life.

Feb. 14th Valentine’s Day, Ash Wednesday, Moon in zany original open for the new Aquarius. Last flings of old dreams? Or original flings at new and old ways of healing, making good friends, holding intelligent conversations and meetings of heart and mind.

Feb. 15th Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon at 27 Aquarius, 4:05 pm est; followed by Moon/Neptune Fri. 16th and Mars square Neptune Feb. 17th. Eclipses can suddenly eclipse or cut one off, separate or estrange. For some, sudden fortunate meetings. Astrology always gives freedom for higher or lower octave responses and results depending on freedom and consciousness capacity of each person involved. Look for 3 days of either confusion and mishap, or divine intervention and inspirations. It’s a Don Quixote and Parzival meeting the wind mill of reality, it’s Perudor and Ceredywn meeting the king of the world, it’s King Arthur and the Red Knight; it’s true dreams meeting true reality.

Will the partial Eclipse bring further shake ups or confusions in the world, at the White House? with stocks? Ecology mishaps? Oil, Air, ecology imbalances? Weirdnesses, scandals, lies, sports badness boldness, mishaps, travel troubles, vandalism, violence? Weird time in politics and economics, S.Korea Olympics and more. Or is Neptune’s influence that many dream on, escape reality? Or is reality too much to bare, deal with? Mars in Sagittarius wants frank blunt honesty and courage to face the truth and take right action. Neptune wants to reach the highest perfection, the ideal. Otherwise, Neptune wants to escape cheat, or over play the cards, reach beyond the grasp, often undermining the future with falsities, drugs, drink, and lack of honest thinking. Oft feelings overwhelm simple logic. Love needs non attachment and practical workings day to day, needs organic selfless wisdom base and sense of necessity and long run to truly work one for all, all for one. Neptune often fails in time due to lack of persistent good work, honesty or practical common sense. Neptune can bring falling or failing due to delusion and false projection, or illusion of true nature of situation or persons. Yet Neptune can dream the impossible dream, imaginatively create and inspire inner worlds of beauty and art to manifest. Is Neptune working for you? Is it a higher calling calling, a divine inspirational call to the wilds, to adventure? Or is it just more wild behaviour? Is it feeling displaced from the present by hauntings of past ghosts and projections of illusory futures. Only time will tell, but most likely not this particular time mid month unless higher truths makes appearance quick! False news is rampant. Mars/Neptune can inspire and spark great adventure and possibilities, but can on the other hand drain and vamp energy, draining valuable resources. With Mars/Neptune, with also Mercury entering Pisces in its fall, communications may falter or mislead.

This eclipse triggers strange moves in one’s alliances and allegiances, friends and family, sudden shifts of identity, how and who one communicates with, along with sudden suspension or sense of being cut out, or cutting out elements not fitting the puzzle of one’s true destiny and future. Important not to lie, betray, fall into non-virtuous ways these days because much karma is afoot! Fate and Destiny do a subtle dance here and one wrong move may bring much challenge or even trouble. The world news will be a scramble of facts and falsehoods right up to two week later full moon in Virgo March 1st, when many a finger tires of pointing blame and critique.

Work on self to change the world round you. Purify negatives, pacify stormy seas, honesty and honor to each and all. Act in virtue of Higher Self, seeking the divine in all. Try seeing through appearance, the mask, discerning the good, true, beautiful, the OM, in all that rises and falls.

Practically speaking, don’t take high risk or gamble at this time. Avoid taking for granted, projecting on others, getting carried away with yourself or others bombastic ‘too good to be true’ pie in the sky inflationary antics, if you want to avoid deflation and rough fall. Great time perhaps for the arts, music, little escapes into colorful imaginations beautifying. Nostalgic fantasy may obscure reality, yet good time to add color and magic to life.

Good time for new TAROT DECK from Mayflower Bookshop. Good time to divine the divine and be still to know. Many colorful dreams and imaginations at this time around new moon Feb.

Here one aspires to the highest good true beautiful or faces the consequences of feeling lost in the shuffle. Times are weirdly strange and frustrated by possible lack of truth or true direction. Perhaps times chaotic in some cosmic karma adjusting ways leading to spiritual preparation for the novel 2020 when Jupiter and Saturn conjunct in Aquarius and a real attempt toward world peace and social justice, creativity and spiritual community arises anew. Mutable and Fixed Signs, planets, houses most affected.

Feb. 21st. Venus conjunct Neptune. Higher love, artistic feeling and perception, deeds of the heart, spiritual dreams and aspirations time; otherwise many a fool for nostalgia past and future cheat one of seeing clearly the present. Blame self cherishing and limited view; not others, for feelings of abandonment or loss. Again, improve self to improve world. Be still and know, meditate to sow the field of true futures. Some leap into what they love, others retreat for inner solace. Venus/Neptune time can bring high romance and beautifying experience. It can on the other hand invoke misleading pasts and projected imagined futures that displace present moment possible for good, true, beautiful, loving.

Feb 24th-25th Venus square Mars gives lots of sexual energy or sensuous attraction repulsion play dynamic to weekend. Danger of dog and cat squabble, fights; but great aspect for frolic and playful rapport. Let love lead the way and prevail over animal appetite. Beautify, don’t nullify. See the divine in other first, then cut the pie or divide the portions.

Feb.28th Mercury square Mars. This aspects gets lots done or gets lost talking and throwing energy in too many directions. Mercury in Pisces and Mars in Sagittarius makes good if ideals and higher love compassion in the lead. Danger of too many words or a going overboard. Mercury calls for sensitivity to others needs. Need for two way conversation, not railroading or running over other.

March 1st-2nd Venus/Mercury trine Jupiter, Full Moon on 1st in Virgo the Virgin possibility or critical mass breaking or melting point.

Lots of love communications, networking, connectivity, feelings and mind coordinate unions, communions, future states, healing of past, hooking up to right vibe. Danger of over doing good thing or taking risk perhaps but over all good days to make positive things happen.

March 13th Venus square Saturn, Love the one you’re with, even if they don’t love you? Challenging times of love. Looking for lasting goodness and appreciation. Patience in the light of higher values. Need to Love everyone, you don’t have to like ‘em, just love ‘em unconditionally! Seek the infinite and art the finite. Learn to see the eternal in the passing moment, how the passing moment attunes to the more eternal. Love the little things. Find divine purpose. These are some ways to deal with Venus/Saturn vibes. For some, love comes late but with much wisdom and appreciation, for others love comes too early and fast with quick cooling off. Venus/Saturn can find truth, beauty, love, and wisdom that lasts through time touching eternity divine. Find that. Let go of the small stuff, look for the big sky behind every heart and mind soul. Otherwise, patience patience patience. Either we are the spiritual medicine doctor or the patient needing patience.

March 31 Big Full Moon after Equinox on March 20th portends of many an ending and new beginning, many an enchantment and many a cooling off or conclusion, completion perhaps. For some, a spanking new sparkling and turn of events. For some, a return to cool calm common sense reality.

Per Astrological Prediction Talk at Winter Solstice at the Theosophical Society, indeed bitter cold came in, Bitcoin dropped in price, and more. That talk is available for $20. Includes a second talk on the ‘Esoteric Side of Christmas a yearly Spiritual Event,’ as well. Talk sent to your email when paid. As then mentioned in talk, Pluto transit will oppose UK  natal Moon bringing much severe weather and social debate/unrest over Brexit, major social, economic, political and world view changes here. Hopefully a new sense of world compassion and working together for common goals for the good of one and all, and no further conflicts will arise! Such UK aspect will last the year. Could indicate a collective renewal of will and purpose, purification of environment and ideals. Could also be major scandal and revelations of corruption, divorce, loss. All astrological aspects have a higher and lower octave of possible expression leaving us free, yet feeling such planetary cosmic vibration and influence. Uranus enters Taurus in May. The last time in Taurus 1935-42 was Depression and WW2, and when King Edward abdicated the Throne. In March/April transit of Uranus T-squares Detroit Michigan’s Natal Chart Sun in Capricorn and Moon in Cancer (Jan. 18th, 1802) making for earth quaking changes and sudden revelations and breakthroughs. Huge positive growth changes and opportunities international and movie making possible then on into coming years! Major new vibe and direction coming (astrology wise).

Here’s one of my new songs, “Damn Those Winter Nights’

“In the Sixth Sense of the Heart, Truth is a Higher Loving that includes us all. Look there, listen there, here now is a most sublime reasoning.”

-robert of mayflower

January 1st Full Moon ‘Supermoon’ brings feeling of peak out experience, perhaps feeling that Thanksgiving to Christmas and New Year’s in last hip hip hop hurray! Starting of major turning point of change and transformation for many during January.

“A heretic is a man who sees with his own eyes.”

-Gotthold Ephraim Lessing

Check out this new song of mine ‘Wanna Get Lost’ !

Jan. 2nd Uranus goes direct in Aries heading for entry into Taurus. Uranus energy wants to take things up to the next higher level. Stubbornness conflicts with strong sudden outbursts of energy. Fanatical zeal and knee-jerk reaction. Sudden shift of policy, sudden revelations or news; sparks of dissent, protest, and intensified feelings and mind for change. International hotspots intensified. Urge to make changes, but short-lived unless good Saturn aspects in the individual or business chart. Coming two weeks could prove challenging to certain stocks or investments, Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies for instance may be challenged again. World Tensions and severe weather possibly increased, but also desire to find peaceful creative solutions.

“Finding each other spiritually is an assent to ascend in awareness and descend in patience, and a willingness to take time to remember the future.”

-robert of mayflower

Jan. 6th Mercury trine Uranus in fire signs, with Scorpio Mars conjunct Jupiter. Lots of new ideas and new connections, desire for something new or more enlivening to enter into one’s day to day. Strong urge to share, play, make connections, jump for joy, emerge and emerge, free wheeling energetic. This aspect plays into January 9th aspect of Sun/Venus/Pluto in Capricorn. Break though with automotive and tech likely here into mid January.

“The work of sight is done, do heart work now.”

-Rilke, ‘Turning’

Jan. 9th Sun/Venus/Pluto conjunct. This is a most peculiar aspect giving some divine inclinations toward form, affection, destiny, and super sensual affections. One has to be careful of unconscious proclivities and attractions causing serious strains and stresses on one’s, or another’s, life. Thus this can be a tragic love or superhuman love or business affair. Capricorn is time honored and thinks the long distance plan, Scorpio which Pluto rules intensifies the situation, inwardly compulsive or compelling in feeling and mood. Capricorn and Scorpio can lean toward selfishness or selflessness depending on evolutionary maturation. Certainly an intense time for meetings, agreements, coming together or breaking apart. We may well see both happy and sad events in world especially with those couples in the limelight in USA and UK. Danger of conflicts or weather, emotions, escalating out of control. Tendency for some to be jealous, loving another for who you want then to be rather than who they are. Psycho drama and negative emotions are to be avoided. Many a hard luck story with these aspects. Love break downs for some, others turn up the heat of the heart. Otherwise very strong stirring emotions and feelings work to progress and further one’s ‘business of love and war’. Strong planetary alignments work to resolve international conflicts to be more business like and in peaceful alignment. North Korea aspects troublingly tense, need for peaceful resolution. Even Mr. Putin has tough aspects through January. Many tough decisions for long-term future being made. Much tension in world, I feel, is due to spiritual preparation for events that will take place in 2020.

“It is a basic esoteric tenant that ‘evil’, whatever its aspect, is always a secondary, derivative phenom, never a primary one. To ascribe to it an objective reality is a fundamental occult mistake. Evil is something good that is out of place, time, or emphasis”

-Rudolf Steiner

Jan 13, 14th, 15th, 16th, Mercury conjunct Saturn, Venus square Uranus (13th), Here reality sets in, what one can and cannot do, limits of growth. Those who break the rules pay. Tendency with Venus/Uranus to act or speak without thinking it out wisely. Shake ups in the weather, politics, fluctuating monies or stocks. Sun squares Uranus on 14th bringing jolts, surprises, solar sparks, possible sudden quake or storm, sudden shift in weather for better or worse. Jan. 15th Jupiter sextiles Pluto making for big windfall successes or failures this month but especially round now, week before and after. Tendency to go big, taking risk. For some, big plans unfold. Sense of wanting renewal. Some unburden self of dead weight. Many feel need to lock into long-term goals sure. Tax Reform debate continues, as does Election interference and rumbles of enforced peace or war drama. With Jan. 16th new moon square Uranus… (13th to 16th influencing next few weeks in effect). A wish to make everything new, need to renew, turn over new leaf, show a new face and renewed sense of it all. For some this could be quite transformative change or rearrangement, jilting, shake rattle and roll, trippy for quick changes and rearrangement of both the dance and the musical chairs of posturing and security. Strengthening of changes previously initiated, or further changes inculcated. Capricorns, Aries, Libra, Cancer signs, houses, planets most affected. For many, a breaking point is reached. Sudden break offs of affairs.

Coronal Mass Ejections or Solar Flares during this time? Fires or electrical equipment failures. Tough time to travel perhaps. Next few weeks offer strong planetary energetics for ‘change or be changed’ atmospherics. From Wall Street to Politics, to international intrigue and the white house; change is astir. Strong need for clarity, honesty, clearly defined goals, strength of character and follow through on promises with constant eye and sure action on positive long term goals, aims. Possible challenge to markets, wall street, till end of end of January, mid Feb.

All true magic and miracles begins with a sense of selfless toward truth and love. Otherwise everything seems trauma.

~Robert of Mayflower

Jan. 23 Moon conjunct Uranus may reverberate into Mid Jan. Uranus aspects. Sense of freedom and lust for playing outside boundaries or limitations. Thirst for new ideas. Time to visit the Mayflower Bookshop?

“The race of mankind would perish did they cease to aid each other. We cannot exist without mutual help. All therefore that need aid have a right to ask it from their fellow-men; and no one who has the power of granting can refuse it without guilt.”

-Sir Walter Scott

Jan. 24th Mercury conjunct Pluto. Difficult communications and/or travel, difficult planning or decisions. In depth research, ultimate findings, psychological approach. Avoid being too hard or cold in social situations, keep a warm heart, loving kindness and compassion first and noble.

Love created us, we can return the favor or not.

-Trebore Tau Bodhi

Jan. 26th Mars enters Sagittarius till mid March. Frank upfront conversations, wishes and drive for expansive, extravagant, adventure and thrill. Possible speaking without fully thinking it out. Love of creative play and sportful daring.

Jan. 28th Mercury in Capricorn square Uranus in Aries. An attempt to control changes, causing change in systematic thought out steps vs. breaks in the continuity.

“If you go too far you may become a cosmic monster.”

~C. Trungpa

Jan. 31 New Moon Eclipse in Leo, especially affecting Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, and Scorpio. A need to cut off negative habits and attachments, relations, things holding one back from growth. A sense of renewed self worth. For some a need to re-imagine holiness and inner spirit self. A wanting to put one’s best foot forward. A sense of playfulness and pure hearted ness. Danger of egotism or selfishness not allowing right view of others, compassion for others suffering and striving aspirations. Coming two weeks awaken deeper sense of connection to others, or opposite, a falling away in misunderstanding. Choose love, be still and know, listen for higher truths in each and all.

Real knowledge is knowledge of the SELF co-creative with past, present, future; a virtue of both being and becoming at one with all life.

Feb. 15th Solar Eclipse in late Aquarius followed by Mars square Neptune Feb. 17th. Here one aspires to the highest good true beautiful or faces the consequences of feeling lost in the shuffle. Times are weirdly strange and frustrated by possible lack of truth or true direction. Perhaps times chaotic in some cosmic karma adjusting ways leading to spiritual preparation for the novel 2020 when Jupiter and Saturn conjunct in Aquarius and a real attempt toward world peace and social justice, creativity and spiritual community arises anew. Mutable and Fixed Signs, planets, houses most affected.

In no age was it the case in such a high degree as it is to-day, that the countenances of men contradict what they themselves say and declare.       -Rudolf Steiner

Anger is the worse non-virtue, attachment is the glue keeps us stuck there.    -G. Rinpoche

“Life is a series of surprises.”  -Emerson

Astrology for December (some aspects influence time before and after exact date of aspect. One needs see how these aspects directly land in the individual chart to make more certain judgement of possible events).

Dec. 1st, Mars oppose Uranus. (Can influence some time to come and has built up to this catharsis for some time past)

Can be very creative freeing time, or is it mistakes, splits, accidents, hasty rash moves?

This is a crazy aspect often triggering violence, warring opposites, sudden anger or aggression. Such aspect can trigger accidents, fiery explosive happenings, over reactive tendencies, strong debate, feelings of being attacked and will to respond quickly and strongly. Positively this aspect is softened by Saturn trine to Uranus which brings a bit of wisdom and patience, long term view, into the dynamic. First week of December, Mars in sky square Pluto in USA SAGITTARIUS Rising Chart’s . International war threats and economic pressures, possibly stormy times passing here. Jupiter transit trine USA Sun at this time may also be protector aspect safeguarding good ol’USA. Still, could be strong gun debate due to further violence, as well as sexual and political/economic scandals in the turbulent air and severe extremes in weather. Cardinal Signs of Cancer, Libra, Capricorn, and Libra most challenged to change or be changed, rise to higher octave and higher self or be pushed or impelled into change. A very cutting edge creative aspect and need for many to update, rise to the occasion, as well as avoid unneeded conflict.

We are all slaves of our own self image.  -Carl Jung

December 2nd, Jupiter trine Neptune. Spiritual Mystical Experience and Events. A very strong aspect for being swept off your feet, madly in love with something, naively projecting and flying into fantasy or highly idealistic situations. Future planning, travel, space/oceanic/or astral voyages, arrangements of the Spirit, extraordinary spiritual insights and experiences. Escape artist maneuvers and moves to legalize marijuana. Positioning oneself for better futures. For some displacement from present by hauntings of past and yet to be future possibilities. Although great aspect for love and the arts, music and the muse, need to keep practical ground as to not over do, abuse, burn out, or fall from the sky and crash. Strong sense of the supernatural and mystic, higher love and spiritual relation. Tendency to float out rather than manifest destiny or bring to earthen form the ideal. This aspect makes some lazy and playful, spending energies. For some this aspects sparks high degree of imaginative play and future planning.

“All talk and no action destroys one’s credibility and future. Continually blaming others and failing to work on self destroys family and community. Thinking unable to aspire to universal truth and love, universal truth and love unable to manifest, incarnate, in every day actions usurps, vampirizes, and bankrupts the spiritual soul, the Consciousness Soul.”  ~robert of mayflower

Dec. 3rd Full Moon in Gemini, Sun in Sagittarius oppose Jupiter/Pluto midpoint, and Mercury goes Retrograde. Shifting information and markets, weather, may go to extremes; emotions too. For some breakthroughs, for others breakdowns. Deep sense of intimacy, or lack of such despoils time.

Seriousness is a disease. -Osho

“In ancient times, if you were too serious or not serious enough, if you joked around too much or lacked a sense of humor, you were thrown out of the Mystery Schools of Spiritual knowledge and unfoldment. This should be done now in both political and higher learning echelons and office.”   ~robert of mayflower

Dec. 6 Mercury conjunct Saturn. Cold winds and harsh news make some come quick to reality, down to earth. Wisdom that comes through time is active here too for those patient and in for the long ride.

‘Jealousy is liking someone for who you want them to be, not who they are. Anger/hatred takes away another’s freedom, forces another, and usually quite impotent about bringing about real lasting change.  Woundology Psychology too is a problem in this modern world lacking ancient Greek Tragedy and Shakespearean wit and insight, learning. Some perpetuate wounds, others healing, still others their enlightenment eternal growth of consciousness, being and becoming. Without insights into Reincarnation and Karma, all suffering is limited in what can be learned and grown forth from. To address this last, Buddha’s first Noble Truth was concerned with ‘Right Suffering’, suffering we learn from, grow from, become free from. This is a modern day dilemma to put suffering in the right perspective ….. to arouse both Compassion for the struggle of the Soul seeking wholeness, and also arousal of a Will to stay in spiritual virtue mind training till the day comes when we can do something about it, we can fix or heal the suffering.’   -robert of mayflower

Dec. 9th Mars enters Scorpio. One starts to see in coming times what exactly one wants and what one doesn’t want in their life. Desire and fear may mar clear vision of future and ‘way to go’. Growing sense of will, direction, what to cut out, what to keep. Need to purify and renew ,  or feelings of degeneracy and lack. Personal desires mar the moment, or deeper wisdom enlightens. Secret manipulations or wise decisions?

Genius quickens, dullness weakens. Wisdom cuts through, ignorance cuts you and/or another out. Draw a circle includes all, divide the whole and face a fall.

~Robert of Mayflower “On the ‘cutting edge of grace’ Poetics”

Dec. 10th Mercury trine Uranus gives quick wit, accurate reporting, insights and entertaining conversations. Venus square Neptune makes for nostalgic and imaginative love and wanderings, journeys, music, drama, colorful nature experience. Stay practical in love but yes, use your imagination!

Be awake; see the thinking in all things, even space. -rt

Dec. 12 Sun conjunct Mercury brings a very alert to everything day. Smarts increase but so does going overboard with talk, think, and a thousand insights and wisdoms.

Haste makes waste, anger hate; patience is divine, awaiting in grace all of time.   ~robert of mayflower

Are you driving, or is it driving you? There is a big difference.

-Gelek Rinpoche, from my memory.

Dec. 13th Moon conjunct Mars, Gemini’s meteor showers. Strong and passionate urge to assert oneself, be over pronounced, strong talk, mood to act and talk later too, strong sex weak mind aspect; but also sense of need to stay grounded and serious about what the future holds for us, is thrown at us, and yet to be adventured.

Dec. 14 Moon conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio gives impulse to expand, attempt to satisfy desires, need for fun, avoid over doing. Secret maneuver could back fire, but also may work. Stay true to the high and noble path, avoid risk or non virtuous activity.

“A man’s growth is seen in the successive choirs of his friends. For every friend whom he loses for truth, he gains a better. I thought as I walked in the woods and mused on my friends, why should I play with them this game of idolatry?   -Emerson

Dec. 15 Mercury retrograde conjunct Venus in Sagittarius. Deeper thinking about matters of love. For some a wait and see attitude, for others a lets take a break and rethink. Tendency to explode with ideas and insights. Need for disciplined approach to what one really truly desires and wants. Mind and heart meet in new ways or quarrel and disagree in new ways. You can’t make one love you. You can make yourself more lovable.

Dec. 16 Sun trine Uranus voyages into new territory and adventure. Need to feel free. Opening up to new ideas and ways of working, playing, going.

Dec. 17 Moon conjunct Mercury and Venus triggers love adventures or plans of such. Feelings and ideas, thinking, unite.

Live soul that the center is everywhere, the circumference is nowhere.   ~old wisdom

Dec. 18 New Moon on Galactic Center in Sagittarius. Ponder your whole life, the one before and after, listen deeper still to right is right here now disappearing into greater sense of things. Destiny is making an appearance but so are distractions from higher self true aims.

Love matters, yet we give it away. Money Spirits and we try to save. Self is in each matter, each moment, yet not of it. Spirit Self is everywhere ,  but here not most matters. Perhaps Beatles ‘here, there, everywhere’ is best, all three at once, and once removed stillness to boot!   ~robert of mayflower

Dec. 19th Saturn enters Capricorn for 2 and half years

Dec. 20 Venus trine Uranus , Musical Chairs or Last Dance Marianne, give you one more chance.

“We sell the thrones of angels for a short and turbulent pleasure.”


Dec. 20th, Venus trine Uranus. Tendency to escape hardships or world craziness, control freaks and cold weather and situations by escapades or adventures in higher love and intelligence. For some its fiddling around and dancing while Rome burns, for others its get down and celebrate  before   we can’t. None-the-less, great time to reach for the stars and invoke one’s Higher Self to ascend to ever greater heights and depths of spiritual realization, virtue minded interactions, love and truth.

Possible aspect for divine meetings, love connections, sudden stepping up of the creative urge.

Dec. 21 Sun enters Capricorn, Winter Solstice, Sun conjunct Saturn in Capricorn. Long term views getting more real. Serious sense of what work needs to be done, rid of, completed, or forgotten. Tendency to feel the world is contracting and control freaks of power run every thing. On the other hand, many a person and place coming into a wisdom and love only time can warrant with a life time guarantee. Hard core realities and limitation, boundaries and inquiry, what can happen and what cannot, appear now in coming times. Could be a bit of a cold spell here. Now for real we find out who’s house doesn’t get blown down by the big bad wolf of addiction, power, falsehoods, and little thinking. Much Wisdom starts to arrive as we head for 2020-23 when many interesting planets enter Aquarius and force big Truth upon many a soul. Spirit matters, and some matters now begin to return to Spirit. Some experience feeling alone, others experience Christ or Higher sense of Universal Self. Some enjoy the quiet or aloneness, or at-one-ment. Some feel forlorn and need to renew quest for spiritual truths, wisdoms, and new love.

In real spiritual growth and knowledge wisdom there is no fallback.   -robert of mayflower

Dec. 22 Mercury goes Direct from Retrograde gives a sense of forward motion next few weeks. Think ideally ,  act practically.

Dec. 25th Venus enters Capricorn and conjuncts Saturn.

Good time to be thankful for what one has, practical and long term. Venus Cap/Saturn can be strong bottom line on what works and has lasting power. For some it’s feeling left out in the cold, lack of love, respect, appreciation. Loss of love, sadness. What works works, false dreams may here fade, melt, or freeze some part in the unconscious frozen part of self, feeling like one is in the  basement of life. For yet others, the Christ experience, the birth of universal love in the heart soul.

Real Magic begins with a sense of selflessness, willingness to divine the divine, willingness to learn what the universe asks. Real  love begins with the same.    -robert of mayflower

Dec. 28th Mars in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces (water signs over imagining or planning escape to heavenly abode/). Many wonderful feelings overspill the moment or days before and after. Hard to tell what is real or what will last. For some, ideals become realized. For others, dreams dream one out into waiting game and lost opportunities. Here an opportunity taken is an opportunity missed. Pick well and fly!

There is no God unless you prove it by the way you live.

-robert of mayflower

Jan. 1, 2018 Full Moon in Capricorn. Appreciation of things of lasting value. View of long term goals positions the next step. A feeling thinks and things have gone as far as they can go, at the breaking point or turning point of the year, life. Right sense of work and play, boundaries and artistic structure, or lack of all this.

Jan. 2nd Uranus goes direct from retrograde. Changes now go forward, not backward. A will to proceed no matter vibes the place out. Perhaps. But also sense of need to go forward so to find true ground. Need to avoid rash actions bringing about undesired reactions and consequences. Need to find sure ground, reliability in work and play. Need to complete projects ,  not just find oneself always starting something new that doesn’t work out or complete. For some a sense of strong forward motion.

Jan. 14 Sun square Uranus, Electrical, shocking, awakening, sudden shift, new news, revelations, rumbles and shake ups in parts, death and rebirth. Such aspect influences us right into the New Moon, and for two weeks to come. Urge to come back to oneself or one’s earthy practical inner self day to day. New light on creative change. Inventive creative innovative.

Jan. 16 New Moon with moon square uranus. Desire to change many things in one’s life this next few weeks. Some do it by free choice, others by necessity, need, want, force. Sudden jolt or spurts of energy or event.

Jan. 31 Full Moon Eclipse in Leo. Sense of heart’s desire or need to shine.  Gatherings of high minded hearts and minds is in order days before and after, around this time. Avoid egotistic actions/words that divide or cause conflict. Possibly good time to put best foot forward and shine on.

Astro News:

Oct. 1st Mars trine Pluto gives one a positive focus and force of conviction to get results and accomplish goals. Can be renewing and invigorating experiences. Strong love or investment urges in coming days. For some strong urge to run away from something.
Tom Petty of the Heart Breakers, appears to have had a major cardiac arrest, his heart stopped. Tom’s current transit of Uranus opposing his natal Sun in Libra often is reflection of heart troubles. Uranus, discovered when electricity was discovered, rules such trouble. As for the Vegas Country Music Festival violence, possible astrological indications in USA chart is long lasting transiting Neptune in Pisces T squares to both USA ascendent in Sagittarius and USA Uranus/Mars in Gemini. This could indicate Opiad and anti depressant addictions, suicidal ideations identified with many of the prescribed psycho drugs. Also indicative of confusing issues in politics, economics, war, oil, wall street computers, spy computers, as well as psychic inflationary and deflationary affairs, lies and deceit, propaganda and hard to figure facts, fake news. Neptune rules hollywood and weird porn sex stuff. In the hustle of the time, Playboy Hugh Hefner died. More weirdness and strange events into middle of month when Mars conjuncts Neptune. Hopefully it will be a more positive spiritual experience. Comets have a funny way of bringing new things in and taking some out. Lots of interesting changes as Comet ‘Asas Sn’ makes perihelion Oct. 14th but visible in morning sky now. Mark Twain born on passing comet and predicted he would go when Halley’s Comet returned, and he did. Tom Petty seems to be going on this one, along with a few others. See Oct. 14th for more comet info. Comets on positive note, light your electrolytes and can help create new ways of thinking, acting, feeling, opportunities and more. Get a reading if you want your own personal chart brought into the timing and possibility. More on this at my talks.

“All Planets and Aspects have a higher and lower octave of possibility and event. It is up to each of us to reach for the miracle at the higher octave of possibility and event horizon.”
-robert of mayflower

“A liar can only lie to a liar, truth can only be known by truth.”
-old philosophy axiom, Trebore Tau Bodhi

Oct. 3rd, Moon eclipses Neptune, Venus trine Pluto while later in day Moon opposes Venus and Mars which last two conjunct Full Moon coming up on Oct. 5th. Full, and for some ‘Fool’, Moon. For some, escapades of romance and future dreams, plans. For others, foolish escapades lasting only a week or more. A very idealistic time and possibly romantic, nostalgic, futuristic. Keep practicality going and ‘get it in writing’ if important issue or promises to be kept. Compassion and practical workings for future good here. Don’t make promises you can’t keep.
Talk tonight on 3rd on TAROT CARDS and READING and getting a reading. See above.

“If you want to know everything wrong about marriage, get married; but then its too late.”

Oct. 5th Full Moon at 12 Aries, Venus conjunct Mars in critical Virgo, love arguments or kinky sex? Good aspect for learning who the other is, like it or not. Having said that, such aspect creates intense feelings positive or negative. Can be cat and dog, or intellect vs. feelings conflicting. On positive note, if love works, it can be the best. The Virgo angle to it is the ‘Virgin Whore’ complex. Yet such aspect can bring together heaven and earth for a spell. Be sure it’s not heaven and hell if you can. Avoid being over-critical. Use constructive criticism. If you want something done well, do it yourself. Good for cleaning and rearranging for clarity, happiness, and success. Avoid use of force.

“Anytime you’re deflecting love, you’re deflecting miracles.”
-Marianne Williamson

“Real love lasts; if it doesn’t last, get real.”

Oct. 8th Venus square Saturn, Sun conjunct Mercury. Sudden realizations of what isn’t working when it comes to love. Feelings of being on a hold button. Slow but sure realizations and wisdoms of how to go, proceed, what to let go of, and what still needs work. The Sun conjunct Mercury in Libra brings much needed clarity of mind to situations at hand and in the world around. For some, strong use of force to get one’s way. Patience and smarts, wisdom, goes far here to mending broken connections. Over-assertive can bring added conflict and stress.

“Where there is love, there is no fear; one grasps a greater wholeness and sense of ‘Oneness’. Where there is fear, one grasps things, people, situations that are perishable and fleeting. The fear comes from some part of our self that knows it’s not working. Fear freezes, hate hardens, only love frees and flows, flowers one Soul Mind Stream to togetherness.”
-robert of mayflower

Oct. 9th Sun/Mercury square Pluto. Hopefully no more violence and shootings in America, or anywhere! More hard facts come out about many disturbing things. Debate about guns, drugs, prescriptions, money and war. Hard decisions and possible dangerous actions abound. Ultimatums or drawing line in sand not to be crossed. Feelings of being crossed. Need to eliminate what doesn’t work. Cutting out decayed or retarded things, forces, situations, so to proceed without sticky icky psychodrama. Much need for wisdom, compassion, patience, and generously offering self time to figure things out.

“The Tibetans think the only desire worth keeping this side of Nirvana, is the desire to become free and enlightened this life.”

Oct. 10th Jupiter enters Scorpio. Last 13 months get condensed into what worked and what didn’t, what to keep and what to free or let go of. Strong need to rid oneself of past burdens or people or situations that won’t grow with you. Further, a need to change self to change the world around you. Both needed, inner and outer renewal and positive change. Scorpio brings passion to larger tasks, goals, ideals. A real sense of which important priorities need to happen. Next 3 months critical to rejuvenate one’s self and aims in life, not degenerate and retard forward motion. This all gets really intellectually clear Oct. 17-18th when Mercury conjuncts Jupiter. Many clear messages arrive by then as to the path to take or not take. A determination to make things better for self and others in coming year. For some, more paranoia and feelings of dread or fear.
“The reward of good work is more good work; as for negativity, it is its own reward as well. Love to find Love.”

Oct. 11th Mars square Saturn. The rule of thumb here is ‘Discipline yourself or be disciplined’. Run-in with the ‘authorities’ or ‘karma’. Need to accomplish work or task at hand. Avoid procrastination or delaying inevitable. Good aspect for good honest work. Keep it simple stupid, works here. Simplicity and clearness beats out over produced.

Oct. 14th Comet ‘Asas Sn’ or called ‘Comet C/2017 01’ reaches closest point to Sun (perihelion) just outside the orbit of Mars. In the last few weeks, this comet rose to be near Perseus Constellation. Perseus is mythological hero story of conquering Medusa who could turn one into stone. In other words, there is an energetic prevalent to be ‘stoned’ or frozen in front of TV or dead thoughts. This is a time for spiritual renewal and inner reflection; a time to cut out the many things not going anywhere. I will be speaking more on this at my talks, and at Mayflower Bookshop. Comets like this come with deep space messages profoundly transforming collective consciousness. Such Comets too are ‘Comet Cleansers’ coming to purify the earth of negative astral vibrations. This Comet may portend more violence on one hand, more ultimatums and show of muscle, aggressiveness and testosterone; on the other hand, with Sun in Libra, true heroes of peace, the arts, reconciliation, forgiveness and/or conversion to the good/true/beautiful arise. Given the world’s weird violent outbursts, let’s hope the guys who name comets can leave words sounding like ‘Assassin’ and find more positive mythological names invoking virtuous deeds. Or so I think. Here at same time, Venus enters sign of Libra giving healthy hearty balance of heart and feelings to hard-headed intellect. Renewing artistic sense of beauty and grace, balance and heavenly poise. Another comet of major significance is coming and already showing its influence. Its perihelion is in 2022.

Oct. 15th Mercury oppose Uranus may bring unexpected news or sudden change of event. Good aspect for intellectual breakthrough. For some, shock or surprise information or critical shift in event horizon.

Oct. 17th Moon conjunct Mars and Venus encourages love trysts, romance, magical endeavor. Favors those less critical and in artistic beautiful harmony mood or mode. Avoid negative warts and ‘put down’ people.

Oct. 18th Mercury conjunct Jupiter give positive spirit to day. For some lucky in work, word, touch, and lips. For some, sudden opportunity, for others, opportunity missed.

Oct. 19th New Moon in late Libra with Sun/Moon oppose Uranus. Next couple weeks lots of upsets, changes in plans, sudden surprises, break offs, or is it a leaving, parting, or sudden meeting. Need to go to higher level of action or face consequences for poor planning, vision, or securement. Look for sudden changes in Washington, but elsewhere too. Sudden hirings, sudden firings, sudden breakups, sudden get togethers, connections. Lots of ups and downs, rollercoaster-like ride of emotions and events. Quick changes and sudden surprise changes.

Oct. 22nd Mars enters sign of Libra open enemies or just excited exercise freaks/friends. The next month and a half or more gets clearer about who is the enemy and who is not. Or who does one work with, play with, love with, adjust to? Or not! Not a good time for aggressive action or response unless one really knows exactly what to do. Avoid rash action, think things out before acting.

Oct. 24th Mercury trine Neptune good for planning, dreaming the future, repairing the past, mapping things out, creating and co-creating. Adventure, the arts, travel, communications of love and friendship.

Oct. 26th Sun conjunct Jupiter makes for great day to share, travel, voyage, meet and play, get intimate with one’s needs, plans, mind/heart.

Oct. 27th Venus square Pluto, Mercury sextile Pluto. Good for deep connection and intimacy when compassion, mindfulness, sensitive sharing, giving and receiving. Tough aspect when people take things too personally, feel personally insulted. Avoid jealousy or loving someone for what one desires of them. For some, deeper connection; for others, feelings of rejection or need to work on self not other. Good for actions renewing and rejuvenating body, feelings, mind. Really good time to read Osho’s ‘Book of Secrets,’ tells how to transform everything into freedom, happiness, and enlightenment.

Oct. 30th Moon occults (eclipses Neptune) can give one new dreams and sense of future. For some, it’s getting lost in false dreams, undigested experience from the past coloring vision and clarity of present. Crazy aspect for wild halloween play and mask-making, pretend, hollywood type masquerade or play. Again, Neptune is lies, deception, illusions and delusions if not careful. Otherwise, it’s the arts, soul weaving and making.

November 3rd Sun trine Neptune, Venus sextile Saturn. The ideal and practical, work and play, can find harmony and balance here. Follow your star, keeping your feet on the ground. Saturn square Chiron during this time brings awareness of what needs healing or is in process for slow but sure learning of lessons. Clash between practical down-to-earth common-sense and far away feelings disconnected from every day what is right before you.

Nov. 4th Full Moon 11 degrees Taurus, Venus oppose Uranus. Creative upsets in love, sudden shift in likes and dislikes, sudden shift of direction. Love links of seldom duration.

Nov. 13th Venus conjunct Jupiter, Mercury square Neptune. Meaningful feelings and longings of love. Danger of lack of logical or practicality in affairs of the heart. Nonetheless, good aspect for dreaming, playing, flirting, kissing, and other artistic flings of the heart. Travel plans.

Nov. 16th Venus trine Neptune good for arts, poetics, higher love, dreams meaningful.

Nov. 18th New Moon late Scorpio square Saturn/Uranus midpoint. Dangerous days here for weather, politics, business and important decisions, knowing what and who is real or not. Stay square, honest and upright in all your dealings.
