Bernie Sander’s is running for President. With Pluto in the sky in good aspect to his natal Sun, and again at Election time come November 2016 (due to retrograde motion), Bernie could take the light. Pluto indicating power and popularity, trines his natal Sun by degree. It seems from an astrological point of view, he has a successful chart for bottoms-up politics, money from low dollar donors online, and popularity with the common man and woman of the USA. We will be hearing lots more from this Vermont Senator about to challenge Hillary from the left. Jeb Bush has a very good chart though for President, so this looks to be an interesting race.

 

Joni Mitchell’s Sun is at 14 Scorpio where May 3rd (EST) Full Moon is. Is she ill? Will she pass into the spiritual worlds? Perhaps a difficult time for her this month with transiting Uranus square her ascendent and Neptune square her natal Uranus. Lots of changes and confusion or loss of consciousness. Uranus could be writing a new song though, and Neptune says… ‘Let’s make a movie’. No doubt, when she goes … there will be a movie.

 

What does President Obama and Russia’s President Putin have in common? Both have Moon in Gemini at about 3 degrees. Could they have know each other in past lifetimes as lovers? Brother and sister? twins? contestants? Gemini is known for being smart and knowing a little bit about everything but not enough about any one thing. As they get older, they get wiser and know about everything deeply. Gemini needs to deepen self knowledge to know world and other. Gemini is also known for talk but no action. Hmmm, we will see. The last Pluto/Neptune conjunction in late 1891-92 at 8 Gemini triggering an outpouring of materialistic science revelations as well as spiritual revelations such as Theosophy, Bhagavad Gita coming to west in English, and more. 490 years earlier, Pluto/Neptune conjuncted at 3 degree’s Gemini in 1398-99 when Richard II was deposed, which lead up to the War of the Roses. We could learn from that time to pay more attention to what is going on at home in USA rather than always being too busy with far away troubles. Russia’s Putin under stress for change again this month as Full Moon May 3rd is at 13-14 degree Scorpio where Pluto was in perihelion during the fall of Russian Wall in Berlin in 1989. Some of that karma is still working out. Seems also it’s an intense chess game with USA and Russia need to agree to agree. Both need more wisdom and wit, smarts and action to resolve in peaceful manner conflicts concerning us all. In May look for another stressful attempt to resolve differences and bring economic stability to Ukraine as well as further tensions between all warring countries. Astrologically, the first week and last half of the month the more challenging in geo-political hotspots, extremes in nature, weather, and storms. Mother nature can be wild, and human behaviour outlandish. Danger of criminal behaviour by egoists bent on their selfish or crazy-minded agendas during May. Much room for patience and perseverance, and opportunity to train the mind in virtue, love and truth.Strong forward motion and good work times come May 15, 16, 18, 21 thru 25th. Otherwise, lay back those days if the world around you seems hostile, wild, or insane.

 

Floyd Mayweather’s astrological chart makes me think he will win, or is he just making lots of money no matter what? With Mars on his Jupiter, he is for sure making lots of money and may not care if he wins…Whew! Funny what some call entertainment. The Bhagavad Gita is the path of the spiritual warrior Arjuna. Buddhists have the bodhisattva warrior attaining noble virtues to overcome negatives.

 

Baltimore’s chart natally has Mars conjunct Midheaven making for assertive aggressive aims. Last days of riots had Mars in sky conjunct Baltimore’s natal Sun exact. Need for strong listening from the heart here, otherwise everyone is over assertive aggressive. Mars is war like, but can also be buddhist/christian type compassion.

 

May 3rd Full Moon at 13 Scorpio with Mercury opposing Saturn; Jupiter midpoints Sun/Moon opposition making a T-Square. Serious conversations at the least. Definitely a vibe of death and rebirth, endings and new beginnings, and strong ego thrusts for change. Strong sense of accounting for people and things. Tough news. All mutable signs, Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo, and Pisces, are either melancholy and feel at a loss, or deeply serious about getting things done, completed, finished. Intellectual sensuous time for some.

 

May 4th Sun square Jupiter creates mass stir or popular consensus as to direction to go concerning economy, politics, ego. Fixed signs, Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio, Taurus, as well as Sagittarius and Aries in the midst of making big plans, fun times, and positive investments of self and time.

 

May 6th Sun trine Pluto gives control as to outcome, decision, stock market, politics, foundation. Earth signs Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo feel in power about present into future. Aligning self with larger interests.

 

May 7th Venus enters Cancer sign. From now into first week of June, great time to beautify self and home. Deep feelings of love, family, friends, home, art, music, clothes, food, and joining up with others who make one feel intimate and warm. Avoid over-indulging, but after last winter…that may be hard to do. Urge to feel life is strong now.

 

May 9th Mercury square Neptune. Funny feelings, lack of certainty, bewildering statements, untrustworthy news, precognition of the future. The desire to map things out and know everything conflicts with moods and feelings overwhelming the practical matters of life. Higher truths conflict with straight out illusions or lies.

 

May 11th Mars enters Gemini till June 24th making for more talk than action but some intense sudden knee jerk statements and sudden actions. Avoid scattering energies into too many things, doing no one good. Networking and mobility is at a high.

 

May 15th Mars oppose Saturn. Military stand-offs? Strong aggressive or assertive speech. Accidents and travel troubles, storms or sudden cooling of relations. Over-the-top victory march and ego inflation vs. feelings of inferiority and infertile or impotent actions. Patience and hard work pay off, using force and anger may cause many a problem. A feeling that others obstruct, and a need to work on oneself to change or correct others’ wrong behaviour. A need for authority to correct mischief.

 

May 16th Venus trine Neptune, putting on a happy face, soul relations, strong feelings of love and wanting to nourish or be nourished. Good day for food, flowers, friendship, love, gardens, music, family, and friends. Erotic imaginations, far-a-way dreams or scheme, plans and projections. Illusions but sensuous psychic feeling galore. Long voyages and big plans to jump over the moon, travel, create.

 

May 18th New Moon at 26 Taurus. Mercury goes retrograde 9:50 p.m. till June 11th making for difficult communications unless one can command or demand outcome, and that may have its own problems. Good time to rethink, renew, return, remark at the wonder of life. Bad time to make major investments unless one really knows what they are doing. Good time to turn things around that already went bad (next week or two).

 

May 21 Sun enters Gemini, Venus opposes Pluto. All talk and no action causes problems. Love difficulties, separations, jealousies, infighting, arguments. Venus/Pluto aspects make for much psycho drama around sex and love. When love can work, it’s deep, but many fall into rejection and mean hard behaviour, coldness and cruelty. Weird sex stuff. Positive side is helping the poor, the underdog, the less fortunate. Good for gardening, yard work, cooking good food, sensuality with a magic touch. Dangerous time to be in dangerous places. Strains and stresses with who and what you love. Strong inner compulsions to love someone that may not be that good for you. Or is it really deep love and passion totally transforming your life. A sense of gardening the Soul for some. Great for cleaning, renewing, outdoors, gardening, cooking, making love not war. Sad news in world or death or loss makes some ponder the future.

 

May 22 Sun oppose Saturn. Seeing inevitable consequences of past actions. Feeling stuck with situations or authoritative or deadened people. May 31st Sun square Neptune. Illusory feelings, Maya, naive thoughts and projections. Perhaps good for the arts, music, painting, poetics, but need to stay practical and grounded. May 29th Mercury square Neptune. A need for a simple life, diet, thoughts. Good for yoga and meditation. Good for simple decisions to stay grounded. Bad aspect for high flying plans that could crash land.

 

May 24th Moon conjunct Jupiter in Leo. Good hearted actions, happiness, feelings of religious ecstasy, sharing and caring for others. Avoid grandiose, inflated, over-the-top scams or schemes.

 

May 30 Sun conjunct Mercury. May trigger May 21st to 30th. Uptick possible in quakes, storms, volcanoes, winds, hurricanes, flooding, and god knows what. Good for smart clear thinking, making good plans positive and noble.

 

May 31st Sun square Neptune fog or sudden sunlight? Confused or sudden breakthrough. Psychic dreams and premonitions. Mystic or artistic perceptions possible. Don’t trust all that you see. Seduced or inspired behaviours. Obsession with something. Possible meeting with an angel.

Astrology News and Views—-Astrology is the science art of tendencies, probabilities, possibilities, and angelic impulses of light and love to overcome negativities and darkness. Happy Spring!

 

  • April 2nd. Mercury trine Saturn makes for good solid practical thinking, finding the bottom line, getting a higher long-term view, and being head strong. Sun conjunct Jupiter gives fiery bravado and courage to leap ahead no matter what. The light of awareness joins up with the power to hold and be bold in creating family, friendships. Happiness and reality of good work meet and agree. Good for making plans, agreements, meetings, contracts, friendships.
  • April 4th Lunar Eclipse at 14 degrees Libra gives powerful initiative to make peace now or beat the door down, rattle sabres, and bang the door. Bad day to hit the bars. Yet, expect pubs and bars to be busy. Cardinal Signs rattled. Aquarius and Gemini jumpy to start anew or take it to another level. (Check your chart to see what house Libra is in for where you need to cut something out or be cut out of the picture; all cardinal signs need to keep things in balance). Stormy weather, possible quakes and volcanoes, stormy seas, Strong winds or tornados, and intense emotions these days. Such doesn’t have to happen, but the aspects are strong for stormy weather. Much news. Eclipses can cut things out, suddenly change the game plan, a sense of ending and new beginning. A possible needed sacrifice of something for something better. Eclipses can make one really, really sensitive and almost psychic for a spell. Effect lasts for two weeks or more. Russia’s Putin affected here to make peace or face severe consequences. USA’s chart indicates need to be really smart and patient, thinking long-term and bottom line. Yet a sense of a need to act quickly and wisely. Can trigger many a geo political hotspot. Sudden reversals and turn a-bouts. A sense and need for authority and purity of motive. Intense feelings may upset rational thinking these days. Need for a higher spirit of common wealth, family, friends, intimates. Eclipses can at times just release pressure and shift the gears and change direction or goals. Makes one over-sensitive for sure. Some fall, others rise quickly these next days and few weeks.
  • April 5th Sun square Pluto. A sense or need for light of spirit, holy sunshine within us, to help us make strong decisions and take right action. A sense of wanting to do what is right and ethically noble. A sense of death and rebirth, meaningfulness, tragedy and hope. Some cave in and get really moody or negative, others turn the earth over and start gardening anew. A sense of funeral or new birth, rebirth. A need to regenerate else one feels somehow degenerated. A need or feeling for purifying, renewing one’s commitments to life.
  • April 6 Sun conjunct Uranus. Aspect for sudden jolts for change. Sudden loss and rebirth 5th, 6th, 7th. Promise to do better in future. Sudden shift of circumstances. Roller Coaster with stocks, politics, those in the lime light, and love relationships. Highly creative but volatile circumstances. Fast as they come, fast as they go aspect. See my book ‘Astrological Aspects, the Art’.
  • April 7th Mercury square Pluto. Depression or Divine Melancholy? Good for research, reviewing, thinking deeply, search and discovery. Good time to read a deep book from Mayflower Bookshop in Berkley. Such aspects can make one feel alone, or feeling of being alone; perhaps even happiness when alone; or is it private conversations with God. Eat fresh foods and do yoga to overcome funky dunky feelings of crashing. Fateful realisations of last few days’ storms or shifting realities. Need to deepen spiritual research into true nature of the times and self. Good for being alone with one’s thoughts and pondering the eternal verities. See Manly Hall’s book ‘The Secret Teachings of all Ages’ at mayflower, $18.95. Used to be $50 to $80. Great book on metaphysics of everything.
  • April 8th Jupiter goes direct in Sage Sagittarius. With Mercury conjunct Uranus, Open your mind to get a surprise visit from your genius angel. Good for all creative and expansive endeavours and adventures. Avoid haste and premature nervous actions and reactions. Here everyone can get a sense of direction, aim. What to do and what not to do becomes suddenly evident for the patient listening heart. New impulses and laws of conduct impel one to think outside the box. Collective consensus arises of what is right and wrong…in the news… (ok, this may only last a day or two, but it’s good sense of social togetherness and sudden consensus in areas of interest). Otherwise strange controversies. Jupiter moves fast now in last of Leo, so it’s a last call for giant steps in growth, for some it’s giant steps of egotism before a fall in the fall. Pride comes before a fall. Jupiter goes into Virgo August 11th when good work and job, health and happiness with those you work with. Inner being, healthy home and back yard, start to matter more than just outer looks and appearance. Humility and humble learning now into April 2016 brings higher success and further new growth; till then it’s the last hurrah for ego games and splashes of ‘power over’ rather than ‘power through’ another.
  • April 12th, ‘Mind your Heart, Yoga of the Bhagavad Gita Talk‘ using the wisdom of Patanjali’s Yoga Aphorisms and the Bhagavad Gita with Robert of Mayflower and Cinda. At Breatheyoga, 799 Industrial Court, Bloomfield Hills 48302; It’s on Industrial Court east of Telegraph on west Square Lake Road north side is Industrial Court. ($10 to $20 suggested donation). ‘Breatheyoga’ has website on internet.
  • April 14th-15th. Neptune in sky opposes USA Uranus. In the sky, Venus opposes Saturn. Some feel lost, abandoned, not loved, and alone; while other’s feel over-indulged, smothery loved, and not enough time alone. This aspect can make for strange bedfellows. For some, sense of loss or betrayal. For others, a sense of vast new horizons and fantastic dreams and plans for the future. A sense of betrayal or lack of love, or is it a need to renew one’s sense of ‘at-one-ment’ with God, Goddess, virtue and truth?!
  • April 16th Pluto goes Retrograde till end of September 2015. It takes till then to figure out what the fudge just happened these last few months, few years, few lifetimes. Those at the top get worried if there’s no bottom holding up the ‘big top’. Re-evaluation of what security is, calling is, goals and aims are. World change and need for universal love and truth on the planet starts to sink into those at the top…who start to realise they need a bottom.
  • April 17th talk at Theosophical Society on Woodward in Berkley michigan, by friend of mine, Chris Fessler. ‘Clothed With The Sun: Theosophic Initiation in the Book of Revelations’. The Apocalypse of St. John is a book sealed with Seven Seals. In the strange imagery of the Book Of Revelations are encoded mystery teachings about the unfolding of individual human evolution [microcosm] and civilisation’s destiny [macrocosm].  These are “The New Mysteries” — mysteries of the future that have now been unsealed and given out by the esoteric schools. The seven fold key that unlocks them is a basic theme of theosophical study.
  • April 17th Mars square Jupiter with Moon eclipsing Uranus. Spring fever or stormy moody emotions? A great time to share and socialise, but take care to stay on the side of the law. A ‘Take me to the limit, one more time’ vibe. Such aspects make for over-the-top wild party play atmosphere (friday night especially here). Can be fun but be careful of nut cakes spoiling the fun, avoid accidents and mistakes by slowing everything down long enough to not only enjoy, but also to remember to cherish these good times and friends. Those inwardly neurotic get really ‘crazy go nuts’. A sense of Rolling Stones ‘This may be the last time, maybe the last time, i don’t know’ permeates the air. A celtic spirit of fog and weird changes unconscious to the average bloke in the air. The future has little regard for the present other than ‘getting there’. Good for truth and good cheer if you have it in you.
  • April 19th Come to my talk with Matthew Darling‘The Bhagavad Gita; The path of the Spiritual Warrior and Peacemaker’. Learn how Gita devotion and true love can work and weave selfless action bringing happiness into life. ($10 to $20 donation.) Astanga Michigan is at 826 W. 11 Mile rd, suite #108 (enter on east side of building near back), Royal Oak, Mi. 48067 (east of woodward, north side 11 mile).
  • Venus square Neptune April 19th good for going the distance to attain new spiritual or artistic advantage, wisdom, insight, and experience. For some it is a very empowering day. For some others, a side tracking and ‘lost in space’ feeling. Inspired plans come into focus. Good for long voyages, art, music, yoga, poetics, song, love; for others strange dreams haunt the parade. Ghosts, spectres, phantoms, and demons may haunt the times for those lacking universal devotion and higher love. A sense of fight or flight. Delusions and illusions spark unsettling vibes. A need for the Great Mother of Compassion to quietly abide. A need for Michaelic Presence to awaken a mind for right action and future need. A need for a good talk on the Bhagavad Gita, an ancient text from India and maybe even from Atlantis on on how to attain spiritual realisation this life. A need or opportunity to talk to angels; that is, wise virtuous ones.
  • April 21-22. Mars trine Pluto, Mercury square Jupiter, Mercury conjunct Mars. Strong sense or need for justice, equality, and love based on truth prevailing. Collective voice for peace and ecological harmony is heard by the heart’s ear. Good for communications, networking, striving for success, attainment of plans or goal. Avoid too much talking or waste of energy. Be sure that in-breath balances out-breath.
  • April 26 Venus sextile Uranus. Very busy day, playful and feeling connected. It makes for a most creative artistic loving day for some. For others, vexation and frustration and set up for critique and negative deconstruction next few days. Good for play but also for cleaning up and catching up.

“For, we say it again, the surname Christos is based on, and the story of the Crucifixion derived from, events that preceded it. Everywhere, in India as in Egypt, in Chaldea as in Greece, all these legends were built upon one and the same primitive type; the voluntary sacrifice of the logoi — the rays of the one LOGOS, the direct manifested emanation from the One ever-concealed Infinite and Unknown — whose rays incarnated in mankind. They consented to fall into matter, and are, therefore, called the “Fallen Ones.” This is one of those great mysteries which can hardly be touched upon in a magazine article, but shall be noticed in a separate work of mine, The Secret Doctrine, very fully.”

  • March 1st to 3rd – Jupiter trine Uranus. Sudden stroke of luck and good fortune. Many feel ‘thank the lord’ type feeling. Great time to start new projects, break the ice, pay off old bad karma, start again, sing a new song, strong collective voices and/or feeling one is striking out anew or alone, urge to follow one’s own dream. Sudden material good fortune and luck for some. If Jupiter not positioned right in your chart, could be sudden misfortune and turn of bad luck. A sense of family and friends sharing positive experience and growth. New ideas and plans for the future. Rise of new talent. Good for all creative thinkers and artists, those who entertain and beautify. Good time to make plans and patiently work for its completion, fulfilment, and its coming to fruit. Good time to get pregnant or come up with a new idea, creative dream, future impulse and striving. Jupiter/Uranus is individual and collective urge for freedom and creativity, social justice and social renewal. With Mars conjunct lunar south node in first week of March expect (3rd to 5th especially) strong urges for offspring, erotic encounter, need for release, sexuality, victory, sense of being on winning side. Negative side of Mars/node is being overly assertive, assaulting, disruptive, quarrelsome, off the top aggressive or angry. Can make for heroes or fools, we shall see. Jupiter Uranus wants fun and wild antics, playfulness and drama. Good for arts, music, creative juices.
  • March 4th into Full Moon in Virgo on 5th. Venus trines Jupiter, Venus conjuncts Uranus, and Venus squares Pluto. Love is highly charged to make it or break it. This could be a great time for wholesome love magic, or for some it’s love gone tragic or weird, gone wrong. Beware of comparing self to others, jealousy, anger, revenge, or just crazy psychodrama. Good aspect for selfless love, compassion, healing, and helping the less fortunate. Follow your bliss not your unconscious wish. Great time to  throw away the grey and take on new colours. Read an Osho book on Love, give one to a friend. Check out Steiner’s ‘Philosophy of Freedom’, or Manly Hall’s ‘Secret Teachings of All Ages’. Or my ‘Astrological Aspects, the Art’. New doors open, old one’s close; what now seems tragic, later will grow a rose garden in your soul. Venus is love, Jupiter wants to go big; Uranus gets a little too wild, and Virgo like a little kid wines and dines and complains while explaining or giving away the trick. Anyway, didn’t mean to go Nostradamus on you. These aspects really good for love working in a selfless and compassionate way to make ‘others’ happy. ‘Selfish’ here doesn’t go far. Some have deeper experience while others face consequences of mistaken views and actions. Many exposed to their own craziness or karma coming back on them, while others just want to leave and never look back. Great opportunities here to reach out beyond oneself. Remember, negativity is its own reward, sympathy is for the devil, and smart intellect most often stands alone. Love anyway, it’s the only thing guaranteed to get you through. Take care around those with deep insecurity, jealousy, anger issues, or just straight out selfishness, carrying shades of dark unconscious need to win at any cost. Good time to help those less fortunate and in greater need. Bad time for power plays or selfish ego plays this month. Clash of ideals and urge to follow one’s feelings too strongly could end in strong conflict or victory depending on intelligence and wisdom available.
  • March 4th to 11th gets nutty with many difficult aspects concerning war and politics around the world. We need the peaceful warrior! The holy spirit of peace and love, social justice and spiritual equality. USA Sagittarius Rising chart has transiting Uranus opposing USA natal Saturn indicating high levels of stress and tension concerning matters of home security, international politics and law, breakthroughs and breakdowns in relationships, technology, structural formalities and demands. Stormy disputes, separations, sudden loss or death, change of fate or destiny, strong reactions. On a positive note, sudden genius to handle any and every ever-changing situation with a high degree of creativity. Can be stormy brutal weather too in parts of the world. Spiritual need to turn guns into garden tools. Practical need to save the honey bee and good farm land for future food. ‘Tis a dangerous time when it comes to world leaders gone astray, geopolitical hotspots, possible new hot spots, sudden need to act or react to negative situations needing correction. Mars aspects tend to aggravate war or contesting, arguments disputes, and disagreements. Important time to take positive action toward higher goals, career, calling. Good time for yoga, meditation, being patient and quietly seeking deeper wisdom concerning surrounding conflicts. Otherwise, yes, these are socializing aspects, party aspects. Good time to work or play with positive spirit towards the future goals. Those with emotional issues and insecurities need extra loving care and may go a little bit manic and crazy in behaviour. Try to be happy for others, it makes good karma for you. Power plays and immediate need for results conflict with long-term wisdom and security needs. Chaotic moments may reshuffle the cards when it comes to cardinal signs and houses in one’s chart. Mutable signs need to quit dreaming and wake up a little more to the hard realities, or do mutable signs need to make that big jump into faraway places and spaces? Fixed signs get further luck and blessings by blessing and helping others to help themselves, sharing your ‘know how’ sows new seeds for future luck and success. March 7th-8th Sun conjunct Chiron leads to maverick or highly unique individualistic endeavour, as well as opportunity to heal some situation or person in your life.
  • March 14th Saturn goes retrograde in Sagittarius heading back into Scorpio signifying that we may not be ready yet for higher wisdom. Mixed feelings confuse clear thinking. Or is there just a need to keep purifying till clearness comes. Trend is to want to get even, revenge, get nasty, kick ass, and play hide and seek. Gosh, real need to do kundalini yoga and go on a spiritual retreat here. Perhaps try vipassanna or something ‘jewelheart.org’ like. Get into a Steiner study group? Saturn near square of Neptune reveals real need to balance spiritual virtuous ideals with everyday practical. Tibetan Buddhism and Rudolf Steiner’s Rosicrucian impulse does much to explain such workings. See my meditation clip on youtube. Far away dreams clash or marry everyday concerns. With Mr. Russia, Putin’s, Mars square his Uranus this month, he will feel the heat to make peace or deeply retreat. Troublesome tidings there unless wisdom and peace soon prevail in that part of the world. Take a breath and listen for higher wisdoms to come. Tendency to give ultimatums and escalate tensions rather than listen to wisdom of higher truths. Good time to read ‘Isis Unveiled’ by H.P.Blavatsky, a truly rosicrucian theosophy book revealing many a spiritual secret to both the past and future. Available at Mayflower Bookshop.
  • March 16th Uranus squares Pluto for the last of 7 times. Explosive changes and world transformations, mutations, gestations, and sudden unnerving gyrations, protests, and sudden endings, new beginnings emerge. New ideas of freedom, invention, re-invention, crisis emergency, and leaping into a brand new future struggle and wrestle with a sense of long-term rootedness, security, tradition, power, and steady as she goes mentality and/or wisdom. This month reveals a real need to put to rest neurosis and crazy chaotic disturbances that offset natural growth and futurity. Need to finalise problems and take serious action toward problem areas. Possible world events that force many to grow. Otherwise deep inner need to grow in new ways. The winds of fate and necessity blow hard for some. Tense turning points this month in history and futuristics. Technological breakthroughs and in other places breakdowns. Important to keep one’s cool head and one’s heart lovingly warm wisdom compassionate this whole month.
  • March 18th Mercury conjunct Neptune can be a day of psychic intuitive insights or one of blind unconscious misleadings, lies, or scandals. Illusions and maya may prevail. Be practical and realistic. Good for psychic dreams and creative inspirations. Good for colourful imaginations, painting, music, poetics, myth making, and drama rather than psycho drama or negative antics. Beware of misreading people. Take weird new news with grain of salt. Take extra care to be crystal clear in communications, yet ideally colourful and romantic to future possibilities. Good time to use a quartz crystal in meditation to get clear messages with angelic possibilities.
  • March 20th Solar Eclipse 29 Pisces, same day as Spring Equinox when Sun goes into Aries! Eery and scary, psychic and holy, or just a good time to step back and take a breath to recharge and reload the camera. 84% of Sun blocked by eclipse over London, more in Scotland. Weird phenomena and news. Challenging aspects for storm or quake or extremes in the weather. Good for telling the truth or making strong positive changes to update or raise one’s consciousness or level of operating. Ridding self of what doesn’t work these coming days clears the space for the new and novel.
  • March 21st doesn’t help any with Moon in Aries eclipsing Uranus and Mars. Avoid explosive situations unless you are ready to diffuse them and bring new peace and order. Need to avoid angry, aggressive, violent situations unless you are there to fix it or repair situation. Yoga and exercise, healthy eating, cleaning, cleansing, purifying, good. Possible major earth changes and collective social changes this month precipitating individual and collective need or consensus for healthy changes. A collective need to honour and love all living beings on earth, even trees and sea, garden and front yards, even stones! Need to consciously create world peace.
  • March 25th Sun trine Saturn brings a bit of logic and sanity into the unconscious tv viewer and electorate. Practical common sense and a more long-term wisdom takes hold here these days to get good grip on what is up now and what is to come. New shared long-term goals emerge. Good for making plans and working with others toward common goals.
  • March 27th Venus square Jupiter kicks off weekend to a good start. Love is in the air, a sense of wild abandon or future escapades are flying out the imagination. Tendency for social or sensuous sharing, good food and friends.
  • March 30th Venus trine Pluto good for long-term love and nourishing the deeper side of heart and health, soul and road ahead. Love and depth work miracles and sound ground.
  • March 31st Mars goes into Taurus; practical money-making sense, security seeking, strong hard drive to go forward no matter what person or situation presents itself. Good for outdoors activities coming up.
  • April 4th Full Moon Lunar Eclipse continues the need for peace in Middle East, Russia, and elsewhere. Emotions run over the top and can be quite destructive if not kept in check with strong intellect and truth. Sense of being at a funeral? Or is it just digging new gardens of world peace and future joys?
  • Mid April’s Neptune oppose USA Uranus can bring floods, stormy crazy weather, information overload, crazy sense of loss or busy busy diffusiveness. Ecology, health concerns, extremes in weather, climate or earth changes, strange politics and war fears, aliens and outer space, oceanic discoveries and worries, all contribute to a need for spiritual and social renewal. Such aspects can bring a sense of renewal in spiritual values and higher virtues in an attempt to raise consciousness to new higher levels, bringing new world peace and a sense of brotherhood, sisterhood, family, friends, and inner peace.

“Olympian bards who sung
Divine ideas below,
Which always find us young,
And always keep us so.”
-Emerson

  1. With Pluto opposing State of New York chart in beginning, mid, and end of February, wondering if storm, and/or scandal, will plague the state and surroundings. With Jupiter on Seattle’s Quarterback’s chart, I wondered if Seahawks would win the Super Bowl and they high scoring?! Well high scoring yes. Notice more people calling it the Stupid Bowl, or Stupor Bowl? Funny how many people say they watch it only for the funny commercials?! Most use it as another excuse to party with friends. With Saturn aspects on New England quarterback’s chart, wonder if they too tough, injured, need good running game, low scoring?! No, Tom Brady was one tough guy, and lucky to boot. The real winners were viewers: highly entertaining. Katy Perry won many a heart and eye riding the beast of babylon mechanical Tiger/lion and with a big ‘Roar’ over balloon worlds. Katy the ‘Dark Horse’ sang over a chess board, then dancing on a beach ‘California Girls’ between two sharks (phallos totem) and palm trees, and at finale, Katy was flying a Star through the air high above everybody. Whew, she is a ‘Firework’ for sure. Sounds apocalyptic this revelation of riding the beast, dark horse song on chess board, beach dance tween sharks, and riding a star overhead. Katy seemed to beat the commercials for being entertaining. Lenny Kravitz and his guitar rocked out with Katy, as did Missy Elliot with her ‘Work It’ and ‘Lose Control’.
  2. February 1st Venus conjunct Neptune makes Super Bowl Sunday either exceptionally good for love, or exceptionally bad. Avoid inflation followed by deflation (balls or otherwise). Love ideals and dreams strong, maybe too strong. Venus is love and appreciation or lack of it. Neptune is beautiful dreams and snow storms or melting dreams and abandon, wild abandon or feeling abandoned. Colourful imaginations and dreams.
  3. February 3rd Full Moon in Leo, Sun in Aquarius spins us into fun week and weekend with many dreaming of spring. With Leo, hearts shine; with Aquarius, friends share.
  4. February 4th Moon conjunct Jupiter in Leo on to the February 6th Sun oppose Jupiter it’s good time to connect, re-connect, play and make friends. Good for social activities or planning such. Community sharing or networking, high job performance good, but avoid over-eating, over-talking, or over-doing things. Avoid boasting and over indulgence. Whatever happens seems big with Jupiter.
  5. February 11th Mercury goes direct at one degree Aquarius making coming week great for pushing ahead with one’s long-term and short-term plans and agenda. Good time for furthering oneself and one’s strivings, goals, good for networking, connecting with friends, breakthroughs in understanding, hopes and dreams. Strong ideals of justice. Knowing what to cut out or eliminate helps make space for the new to come in. Rid oneself of what isn’t working to free oneself to go ahead, attain desires, hit the mark straight on (Moon in Scorpio). New chances to grow and succeed come in next few weeks.
  6. February 18th New Moon last degree of Aquarius. Recent east coast winter storm had Venus at same degree. Mercury hits it March 11th and 12th. Look for possible big stormy events last week and half here in February, but also in (March 11-12th with Mars then conjunct Uranus and square Pluto and Solar Eclipse time March 20th). Dangerous time then for explosive angry aggressive activities. Need then for patience, cool calm collected wisdom and compassion. Many explosive troubles around world popping up. Need to kick into quick healing mode and raise oneself to higher level, or chance of exposing oneself to getting sucked into negative situations. Surely quake and volcanic, stormy, times … starts here February 18th, 21st, 23rd, a time to establish good communication and healing or time disparity, contesting, opposition, and  upset; before going into the challenging month of March (after which, many a good time to come).
  7. February 22nd Venus conjunct Mars in early Aries good for love making’s poetic passion, but also on the flip side time to avoid direct confrontation and relationship breakdown or break-ups. Venus is love, Psyche the feeling soul. Mars is Eros/Cupid with his arrows of love, but Mars is also a lord of war, anger, force, guns, not always known for being a good sport. Venus is forgiving and magnetic, but at times brash and crashing into things, hitting it head on or running from things with sulphuric winds. Venus Mars together can be dog and cat fights, or the divine play of gods in romance and new beginnings after tricky endings; or is it just starting again. Aries wants something new to happen, not just the same old same old.
  8. (February 23-25) Next 3 days good for working for long-term benefits. Establishing firm foundations. Honesty is critical, also a good bottom line. February 23rd Sun square Saturn brings pressure and hard work, cold shoulders, tough negotiations, keeping to the book, hard line, walking into blocks or walls; but also good for more long-term or more traditional and conservative views.
  9. February 24th Venus trine Saturn good for long-term love or beauty, paying bills or karma, repairing or restoring, appreciating and acknowledging. Reaping benefits of good work. Responsible workings. Good for renewing vows.
  10. February 25th Mars trine Saturn but also Sun conjunct Neptune makes for good news and bad news, mixed blessings. Hard lines and deceptive sentences. Striving and working for long-term goals good here. Good for practical arts and beautifying, painting and music.
  11. March 2nd to Full Moon weekend 6th to 8th fun loving time, with possible warm up in many areas. Everything comes big now. Good time to love and letting go of what don’t work. Create happiness for self and others now, but make changes and progress without attachment or creating negative psycho drama. Let others have their experience to insure better change of your being entitled to yours. Good time to avoid negative sarcasm and over critical non-constructive attitude and words. Good week for working for happiness by sharing your own inner happy energetic and view. Time for fuller participation with all life. Good for making new friends and ridding oneself of negative factors and behaviours hindering your higher self from more fully flowering.

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?
