“No one is free who has not obtained the empire of himself.” – Demophilus the Pythagorean

UK, Britain England under the gun, or knife, with rough extreme weather, politics, economy, and miserable complaint as Pluto for the second time in retrograde now opposes UK natal MOON! Difficult Mars aspects add to the picture making for strong words and actions needing wisdom’s compassion and long term view as things there continue to heat up crazily.

These days with Eclipses we got heat and mean posturing, fires out west, in the east flooding, along with mars/uranus mercury mars retrograde making crazy explosive situations, sudden exposing or shocking revelations and realizations, ie. expose’s in church and state, famous and infamous, 3-D gun problems, more expensive toilet paper, less expensive Bitcoin, political collusion or collision, russia probe or russian grown politics? Sudden rise or fall for many in both ego, money, power, fame. Quickening times, ever changing events, who’s about to slip slips, falls, others suddenly rise to new position and height. Many experiencing a turning point in affairs. Many suffer from things gone to extremes or out of balance. Dangerous time to use force or force oneself and projections on others.
Seems lots of things and events at a breaking point, a break down, or is it a ‘break through’, a sudden rising to new highs and depths of awareness, reality, truth and love.

Intense times eve of August 1st with Mars square Uranus in sky, taking us right into August 11th Solar Eclipse; and on to August 19th Mercury retrograde going direct This timing should tell many a story as to what is really happening and what isn’t. Many fall apart, others suddenly come together! Some are stuck with highly idealistic fantasy Neptune dreaming the impossible dream For still others its waking up from illusion/delusion. Are you driving or being driven? You in control or someone else piloting or pirating the ship. False Inflation is followed by deflation for some. All depends if you have good aspects to these transits. See your natal chart. Cancer and Pisces planets lucky and dreamy, Taurus and Virgo locking into long term security.
Signs and Planets in fixed signs of Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius, Leo feel this the most stress and energy for strong change/transformation/progress. We all have these signs somewhere in our chart. (see yr personal chart with all the planets and houses!) That is why i give higher and lower octave possibilities and event. Depends on your own natal chart how these transits either create ‘good or challenging influences and aspect.
Some Aspects in sky tough, if hitting your personal points, have patience and avoid negative spats. Remember, we are after lasting happiness, truth and love for all. Onwards then.
Some deepen with Pluto realization it may take some time to fix, heal, transform. Without compassion and a sense that everyone of us has a God Spark, a potential ultimate flowering of truth and love, grace, compassion, wit; there is no end to the torture of materialistic only view. We live in a spiritual and material world orchestrating an educational evolutionary progress of the heart mind Soul, an eternal quest. Selfishness and greed, acting out of separateness, and causing suffering with little or no learning or healing is hindering our happiness and enlightenment.
Spirit and Matters of earth need meet and agree in mindful harmony. All the leaders of earth should meet regularly and publicly with Peace, Love, Harmony in mind for all! All the earth is a living being, a Gaia, a wholeness, seeking balance, harmony, community and song!
Many, astrologically speaking, are stuck with moon reflections, no radiant virtue sunshine. Some can’t turn the noise and craziness of electronics and sense bound thinking off so to rest in the heart. Some on all the time and never learn to be still, ponder, contemplate, meditate, yoga. Some have the sun burning all the time, no stillness nor quiet down time to reflect.

Aug. 1st is the queen of diamonds in the card system, hard facts from mother earth and divine wisdom soul sophia presenting themselves to those with listening hearts.
Mars retrograde square Uranus is tough talk, blaming others, shaming, heavy gaming, explosive situations, sudden escalations and reversals in all affairs. Mars/Uranus creates lots of stress and tension.
Such aspect Mars/Uranus here last May and again in September, but this may prove the roughest into mercury direct on Aug 19th. Need to retrace steps and see honestly how we got here so not to repeat mistakes, eh?
Need for ArchAngelic courage for truth, honesty, compassion and protection of little ones (everyone who knows less and suffers more than you). Need true education how to love and respect all God’s creation and be co-creative not manipulative nor over controlling, but co-creative and in harmony with all. When we work on ourselves, we can change the world.
‘God’ is what Plato calls the ‘Oneness’. All things good, true, beautiful come from or go to this sense of unity, wholeness, Oneness. Oneness is permeating all the universe with creative diversity and spirit. Universal Mind to Hermes and Plato is the only begotten Son or light of the Oneness; the thinking in all things. The light of the world is connectivity, relationship, spirit to grow, love, learn, share.
We don’t always know and realize how everything we do, no matter how secret, affects everything and everyone else, and they us. When we are willing to learn, anything can happen, Plato said. Wisely Loving everyone isn’t an ideal, its karma, its dharma, its reality, we are not always conscious of it, that is the problem. This truth, Love, is what creates our future, our destiny or fate.
Mars/Uranus intensifies and quickens what’s taking too long, but the danger is impatience and weird releases of force, tension, precipitating hasty actions, mistakes, hurtful speech, anger and negative actions/reactions causing disturbance, ill winds, test of nerves and danger. The positive side is Mars as hero, in justice, truth, compassion and love. Honest courage to act with infinite patience being attuned to the eternal in each other is the higher octave of mars and venus working together. Jesus said ‘Love your enemies’, you don’t have to “like” them, love em. Buddha taught desire and fear are the cause of all suffering, and to have compassion and selfless wisdom is to free self and other. When we learn from our mistakes , we don’t repeat them. Lets be spiritual peace makers and wisdom keepers shining with Mars/Uranus higher truth light, joy wit.
There is never a time ‘God and Love’ is not with us. This is wisdom, infinite possibilities for the good true beautiful you. This is the real chance for winning, not the lotto loota. This NOW is always the time to learn, love, truth, be the sun/moon/earth, heart/mind/love for a real chance for renewal and positive change. Summer Blessings,

“What’s past is prologue.” ~the Tempest, Shakespeare

The economic view should be brotherhood of shared planetary existence, community family and universal heart, home. The religious view should be also the cultural artistic, deep inner flowering and ecological view. The political commonwealth should inculcate ethics (what is right to do) and the rights of all mankind, spiritual equality, practical everyday justice, education, for all.
——Robert of Mayflower

August 1st to August 11th, Mars square Uranus, Solar Eclipse (11th). Avoid fights unless you have to defend, and maybe not even then. Defend the weak, be brave and true, virtue deed self and other, be free, strong in roots and honoring all life, rights for all, God and Goddess, Great Father and Mother, Highest Truth and Love, bless us all. Here the breaking point is reached and many go beyond their means to find freedom, intelligence and love. Some just break their stride and search research for new truths capable of holding their emerging Higher Self and Future Destiny in the World Big Time.

“The lyre of true philosophy is no less tuneful in the desert than in the city; and he who knows how to call forth its latent harmony in solitude, will not want the testimony of the multitude to convince him that its melody is ecstatic and divine.”   (Thomas Taylor, from his History of the Restoration of Platonic Theology)

Full Moon August 26 with Venus square Pluto, on 27th August Mars goes direct. Love no matter what but attend to those less fortunate, the most for the many. Don’t take things personal other than your highest dream to work into manifestation. To proceed, to grow further, sometimes you have to pull weeds, cut something out, get rid of bad habits, let go of what don’t work, find your own way with others who want to grow and know more beyond this and back again. Deep love now works, fake love causes negative emotions and insecurities to emerge. Good time to share your naked mind and fully flowering summer heart. It may be now too late to pull weeds in the garden, but never too late to pull weeds in the soul stripping oneself pure in the light of universal truth and love, a brotherliness and sisterly mind/heart for all life. Be well, be star, be mindful dharma heart. Blessings.

“By mutual confidence and mutual aid,
Great deeds are done, and great discoveries made;
The wise new prudence from the wise acquire,
And one brave hero fans another’s fire.”

There are divine dances: in the first place, that of the Gods; in the second place, that of divine souls: in the third place, the revolution of the celestial divinities, viz. of the seven planets, and the inerratic sphere, is called a dance: in the fourth place, those who are initiated in the mysteries perform a certain dance: and, in the last place, the whole life of a philosopher is a dance. Terpsichore, therefore, is the inspective guardian of all dancing. Who then are those that honour the goddess in the dance? Not those who dance well, but those who live well through the whole of the present existence, elegantly arranging their life, and dancing in symphony with the universe. Hermeas on the Phaedrus.

To what shall I compare

The spectacles of a philosopher?
To a clear dream by Jupiter, 
Circularly borne along in all directions; 
In which, indeed, the body does not move, 
But the soul travels round the whole earth, 
From earth ascends to heaven, 
Passes over every sea, 
Flies through every region of the air,
Runs in conjunction with the sun, 
Revolves with the moon, 
Is carried round with the choir of the other stars,
And nearly governs and arranges the universe, 
In conjunction with Jupiter! 
O blessed journey, beautiful visions,
And true dreams!
Maximus of Tyre, Dissertation VI

Hope your days summery sweet
and transcendental as the rose rose
above the thorns,

the Astrological Overview~~~

There is no past we can bring back by longing for it.

There is only an eternal now

that builds and creates out of the past

something new and better.

~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Tragedy is a tool for the living to gain wisdom,

not a guide by which to live.

~Robert Kennedy (i guy a met and shaked hands with,

shared eyes and a few words with; i will never be the same.)

With the recent Jupiter retrograde trine Neptune, the big picture is in view but not totally manifesting, quirks in friends and relatives disrupt the beautific dream. Irrational exuberance? If everything is so perfect why aren’t you happy? Water signs (Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer) dreaming out, leaping for heaven, some make big splash, others splashed with cold water waking em up. Jupiter/Neptune aspects can be too idealistic or lazy, wishing to play not work, wanting something for nothing and trips for free. Oil prices and Movies experiencing extreme highs and lows (Jupiter/Neptune), as well as Euros up and down, Bitcoin too; lots of roller coaster rides going in circles? . Jupiter/Neptune aspects can be expressive of very idealistic dreamy magical love, relationship, marriage; but due to Jupiter retrograde in Scorpio, there may be a conflict of desire and mutually aligned futures. It certainly doesn’t help Jupiter’s expansive joyous outgoings and Neptunes dreamboat fantasies, to have Saturn/Pluto midpoint at Jupiter/Neptune’s midpoint; holy ‘cowabunga’ and carelessness with the big love holds us all? This could also be related to Supreme Court in USA overturning national gambling ban opening up the door to legalized gambling everywhere and more poor humans losing money while a very few win. Worries about money matters, health, separations due to sickness or wrong ideas, possible small beginnings for big returns, or big adventures with little return. S/P (saturn/pluto) demands reality from J/N (jupiter/neptune) big dreams and holy smoke, legalizing marijuana pushes forward. J/N requests and quests for fun and joy, creativity escapism and/or bit of heaven. If S/P demands hard work too much cold reality may dampen party. With Mars recent involvement, some very pushing for their agenda. April/May, the beautiful outer appearance and hot dream is cooling off with a more real picture appearing as how to get from here to there and what work needs to be done emerges. None-the-less, Love aspects nearly override all negatives come early June. Come July double eclipse and Aug.1st return of Mars square Uranus (again Sept. 18th), many a buckaroo wild horse ride ahead. Mars is outspokenness and brave action, strong thrusts forward, but Uranus demands high truth and accurate higher octave motivation and technique …., or things tend to back fire, suddenly twist and turn, return, or crash and burn, reverse or get maddeningly feisty competitive argumentative. Here patient good work and honesty for the good of all eventually prevails. Premature action or hasty quick knee jerk reactions backfire or waylay. Early fixed signs of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius feel the heat or are applying the heat to quicken the pace or cut out, part, separate.

Do not be afraid of your difficulties.Do not wish you could be in other circumstances than you are. For when you have made the best of an adversity, it becomes the stepping stone to a splendid opportunity.


Love and Hate make you immortal, choose love.

-my memory of Gelek Rinpoche comment.

Choosing is the active ingredient.

Saturn retrograde trine Uranus, in the air brings more harmonious big changes but not all the pieces of the puzzle fit the form of the day to day or practical necessities life demands perhaps. Its kind of a Bob Seger song lyric, “You just can’t have it all” and it doesn’t all fit in the car anyway. Saturn wants security and predictability, Uranus wants progressive change and forward motion, progress. Here earth signs Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo are favored when making realistic earthy plans practical and long term secure, yet progressive. Patience is key to see this creative process through into end of year.

You will not be good teachers if you focus only on what you do and not upon who you are.”

― Rudolf Steiner

If you are willing to learn, anything could happen! ~Plato

Where there is learning, there is freedom; where there is freedom, there is learning. Ultimately there is no learning, no real schooling without the study and listening to the cycles of nature and her seasons of work and play, rest and renewal. That there is an inner and outer nature, and a stillness beyond yet holding it all, is imperative. Without a trinity, all is lost. Call it everything, nothing, and a mind; religion, philosophy, and science; Spirit, matter, mind; call it love, truth, and a will to still go on no matter; there is a trinity ~ you, me, and the holy space around and in-between , if you know what i mean and what is yet to be explored and dreamed into new worlds.

~robert of mayflower

Mars in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus throws strong holistic healing message out, but also increased time of aggression, violence, hurtful painful ways of interacting. Yet Genius can also be at play, and for some a quickening of higher intelligence, creativity, and freedom. Here the way or means is the end result too. Some throw a strong ultimatum , ’Play by these rules or the game is over and all the toys will be removed’. Mars is desire or force, externalization of will, hopefully an Aquarian ideal of equality, freedom, happiness, and what is good for everybody, is at play.

Square to Uranus, Mars gives sense of urgency, now or never. Mars/Uranus can be violence as in crashes/shootings/harsh words or actions causing strong reactions (such is in news daily). Mars/Uranus is also lightening or storm (as in UK and France), wanting to throw things out, or wanting new but unable to process or compost old. Mars/Uranus can be moments of genius words and action, but it can also be momentary chaos and negative criticism or mean hearted action. On a positive note, Mars is Michaelic Courage, ArcAngel daring, and Manjushri cut through it all wisdom. Yet remember Bobby Kennedy’s words, “Progress is a nice word. But change is its motivator. And change has its enemies.”

In order to approach theosophy, steiner, blavatsky, plotinus, manly hall, magic, tibetan buddhism, macrobiotics, yoga, meditation, diet and health, mindfulness and dharma, with full cognition and ultimate possibility, it is necessary to fully attune your soul mind spirit totally to such truth and ultimate love. Don’t fool yourself, invest wisely and 100%, some vehicles to life are worth every penny of time.

-robert of mayflower, ‘Where Steiner meets theosophy, buddha, and Gelek.

And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the ‘Lord of Phosphorus,’ and Lucifer, or ‘Light-Bearer,’ is in us: it is our Mind. ~HPB.


Freedom demands we transform negativity and separateness, composting negativity and separateness into a sense that the whole world is really one big garden. Learning to garden in the spirit soul to soul is the whole secret of transforming, composting, evil into goodness, friendship, peace for the world. Heaven and Hell at the same time and place, space and moment; its the purity of the mind that chooses one or the other. Train the mind in virtue, theosophy and anthroposophy, buddhism and Osho good start! ~rt

“Life is a short spell; but love is an infinite well,

an eternal star, an ever setting sun heart in heart.”

~Trebore Tau Bodhi

Sun/Saturn conjunction last winter solstice dec 20th 2017 giving early warning shots of coming Saturn Pluto conjunction 2020, along with sense of need to control, especially if others are not in control. Extremes in weather and behaviour. Security and freedom, rootedness and sure growth, short term and long run with at odds or learn to work and play together. Cardinal Signs Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, Libra need be strong and self willed for desired goals and long term investment of self, time, money; yet also need to be flexible and more fun loving. All play and no work has no future, all work and no play has no present.

“The time has come to realize that supersensible knowledge has now to arise from the materialistic grave.”

― Rudolf Steiner

Currently, Chiron went into Aries, Uranus into Taurus, Mars into Aquarius.

Everything is trying to be new or renewed, unique in appearance and genuinely individualized, novel and marvelously brash and fabulously fashionable. On the other hand the Saturn/Pluto wants something old and classic, something old fashion romantic and terribly practical, rustic, antiquitous, and wise or prudent. Bit of a clash.

Yet early June Venus trines jupiter/neptune, but also Venus opposes Pluto, then Sun square Neptune. With Neptune these days in rough square to Jupiter/Saturn midpoint, there is an attempt of materialize spiritual and highly idealistic even futuristic ideals of happiness, versus wanting to escape, jump into fantasy, over feel everything and take it too personally. Also danger of delusional or illusive thinking and feeling getting in the way of true aims and workings. Things for such mutable sights may get lost in the shuffle of dreams. fantasies. unfulfilled or unrealistic goals or needs. With Jupiter now making what many consider good aspects, ponder that Jupiter is now square to the Pluto/Neptune midpoint indicating possible great gains for some, great losses for others, or a price to pay for misuse of resources, self, or other. Also an indication that personal pleasures and joys that don’t embrace a World Conception attempting to hold us all, a future that doesn’t ethically embrace world realities and a big picture holding all the planets long term interest, is doomed to fail in some collective or personal way. Earth Changes and destruction of nature need be further researched and assessed in light of Spiritual Science. The loss of the honey bee due to pesticides and mono cropping is another need to be looked into deeply for solution. Such aspects are indicative of how many people are losing their old or outworn social identity and are presently seeking new or renewed ways to relate to the greater world around them as well as deeper wiser inner stillness of self.

The exercise of magical power is the exercise of natural powers, but superior to the ordinary functions of Nature. A miracle is not a violation of the laws of Nature, except for ignorant people. Magic is but a science, a profound knowledge of the Occult forces in Nature, and of the laws governing the visible or the invisible world. Spiritualism in the hands of an adept becomes Magic, for he is learned in the art of blending together the laws of the Universe, without breaking any of them and thereby violating Nature. ~H.P.Blavatsky

Only those who dare to fall greatly can ever achieve greatly.

~Robert Kennedy.

Dark Moon Lilith in Capricorn (control and conquer, think long term or is this short contract, law and love/sex, rules maintained or broken and sub sequential karma) conjunct Pluto April/May, along with Dark Moon Lilith conjunct Jupiter/Neptune midpoint may have thrown many into insatiable crazy love, as well as crazy possessiveness, obsessiveness, dark star adventure with many a kink to be ironed out; Many still feeling it in June. Come end of first week in August Dark Moon Lilith enters experimental and novel try anything once or twice Aquarius. Come late August into September, look out, Aquarian Dark Moon Lilith square retrograde Uranus! May reveal how much we all need to rethink love and sex, marriage and relations; may need a completely new vision and voice and plan that will stop the abusive man club cave and re-envision what new ways of seeing love and sex so so many aren’t continuing to break the rules yet demand others to obey!?! Much freedom of expression and cutting edge creative new fashion, music, the arts, as well as an anything goes attitude. Here ‘Intelligence is the ultimate aphrodisiac and venusian persuation’ if you will. Take care to look out for the thoughtless fling and exotic tattoo on your mind soul. Also here comes the sex dolls, more crazy mad love escapades, TV and Movie Love Fools available for mass indulgence and psychological emotional dismemberment and dare devil fool heartedness, unruly off the wall antiques as well as strong scrutiny and moral critique. For many, its freedom from the known and an adventure into higher minded full heartedness.

Art, reappearing color and soul, is eternal. We can love a thousand times more, don’t be attached to the form it takes; keep the whole world in mind, but mind the moment you are in. Here flowers dream.

~robert of mayflower

First Lady Melania , the President’s wife’s hospitalization may give indication of her having an 8 degree Capricorn Moon, with Saturn there expect a long slow recovery, and/or some serious rethink of feelings and commitment. Also may indicate she has a late Gemini or early Cancer Rising Sign Ascendent or Rising Sign. If this true, then Melania has Aries midheaven with Chiron conjunct it with her own aim to be a maverick unique individual. With Saturn conjunct her Moon in June she is laying way back and long term planning. She has very good aspects in coming years making for a most unique and creative individual attaining much personal success and happiness. At the moment she is most likely totally transforming inside out and deepening her mind stream with ennobling higher virtue prayers. Saturn is slow but sure here i think. With Uranus transit heading for her natal Sun next summer but closing in now, she may be about to ascend to higher levels of consciousness, learn to do anything she puts her mind too, and may well become a super hero. At the moment the wisdom that can only come through time and suffering on this planet are awakening a new selfless wisdom, world wisdom and bottom line. Big decisions are being chewed on and new wisdoms are at hand (Saturn), as well as need for patience, perseverance, and endearing endurance. Uranus is freedom and higher intelligence, and bringing it up to the next higher level, Saturn at the moment is sit back and be still to know. Any unsureness or uncertainty will need time to make sure. Blessings of healing, wholeness, all that is good to Melania, First Lady.

Home and Housing prices seem to be rising twice what wages and inflation are covering. Oopps ….another dumb bubble to drop punt and pop next summer if not before. Gosh, when we gonna get clean air, water, education for children, love and truth is greater than power guns, money, and ego. Yea, those things smart cool, but without love and compassion for all earth ~ dumb gets dumber.

Saturn Rx. transit squaring UK Ascendent at 7 Libra. Neptune/Pluto midpoint conjunct UK Venus, while Venus opposing UK Saturn then goes on to oppose Pluto. Not a lot of love going on there these days. Increasing violence and split identity , karma, catching up there. Ego and criticism without right alternative view and solution leading to cold wars and rejection, anger, and lack of compassion.

Hawaii Anyone? Lots of quakes and volcanoes waking up these daze. Hi Good By Hawaii? Well, if you look at the horoscope of Ka’Iulani, Princess of Hawaii, who mysteriously got thrown out , and died in late 1880’s when Theosophy and Steiner arose; you may get some insight into Goddess Revenge. Jupiter the planet of fun and overriding others for one’s own fun or social life, truth, music, and muse; is conjunct now the Princess of Hawaii’s Dark Moon Lilith. Also Uranus sudden eruption and revolution, is now conjunct her Neptune at 1 degree Taurus. Holy yikes and holy smoke. Volcanoes purify the upper airs, just like fights, war, violence wipe out lower airs; none of it is exactly enlightened, but from an esoteric point of view; unless we find higher peace and love, compassion and truth within us to stop wars; life keeps teaching us the hard way. Uranus transit now is also opposing her Venus; Hawaii needs to find a new way to love! Four five years and ears down the road, when Uranus in sky conjuncts her Moon/Pluto conjunct at 22-23 Taurus, a whole new Hawaii be happening. Pluto now in 4-5 years coming to conjunct her Mars may be giving ill omens to happiness and joy living in them parts.

As for Hawaii chart as a state, the astrological starry insights give this; Neptune transit in sky is square to Hawaii’s Venus for awhile, Love now needs lots of truth and reality and no false escapism into luciferic wonderlands. Ok, that was a bit too Steiner like. Nep square Venus is only higher love works now, everything else is melting in fire and false dreams, or whatever it is beyond this. Still esoteric, i know. Neptune is a response to pollution, the voice of the Great Mother, the Dream real or not real, revealed. Uranus in the sky is about to trine Hawaii natal Pluto….., freedom through higher truths is at hand. New ways to transcend dumb psycho drama is at hand. Tough road, i agree. Pluto transit nearing bottom of the chart indicates Hawaii is bottoming out and in coming year or two going deeper than ever into death and rebirth, compassion love tolerance helpfulness to neighbors, to rising from suffering into new lands, new futures, renewed faith in the heart and mind, soul and spirit of life. May peace and love win both land and sky, friend and foe, into mutual creativity holds us all whole and holy.

He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home.

——Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Detroit –

In looking at Detroit’s Astrology Chart of July 23, 1701, 4:51pm when Cadillac founded city, Detroit has a 0 Leo Sun with Mars at nearly 28 Cancer. Well, recently Mars transit as well as Uranus squared and opposed Detroit’s Sun and Mars. The Mayor, and others, recently spoke of Detroit being the most violent city in the USA and school children having the lost scores of intelligence in USA. With Neptune transit squaring Detroit’s Moon at 15 Pisces, it doesn’t fair well in the future when all the before mentioned aspects, due to retrograde motion, return in august through early november 2018. In March and June 2020, Saturn will oppose Detroit’s Sun; then good tough rules will come into play as well as beginnings of bottom up structure supporting home, family, education, dealing with pollution problems. Jupiter and Saturn together in conjunction will oppose Detroit Sun by exact degree in December 2020. Then on look for Detroit to for real become world class city bottoms up, top down. In feb/March, and May/June, and Oct. 2019, Jupiter conjuncts Detroit’s Ascending/Rising Sign making for much hoopla and monies thrown around for many a project and wild speculation, much happiness due to greater sense of leadership and spiritual uplifting events, positive sense of brotherliness and sisterhood, community and family, all as friends. But it really takes till 2020 to lock into long term for sure success, health, and wealth for the city of detroit. That’s my prediction. Detroit’s Sagittarius rising gives it that blunt frank up front honest approach. Leo Sun a zero degrees gives us lots of amateur egos. Mars/Uranus in Cancer the guns, anger, aggressive, purple gang mentality, but also the fight for freedom and justice and a higher more virtuous way to go. Jupiter/Moon/Saturn in Pisces gives us that psychic intuitive, home family friends good work wish and dream that is time will occur again and again till we get it right. Midheaven in Libra is goal of equality and relationship to all life. Venus conjunct Pluto node in Leo makes for the gambling, strip clubs, undercover night life, erotic, and secretive stuff. Up side of that is a search for love that transcends death and fear. A search for love as higher identity; also the redemption of the dark feminine. See the books, ‘Running with the Wolves’, ‘The Sacred Prostitute’, ‘The Pregnant Virgin’, Marion Woodman Books. Also see ‘The King Warrior Magician Lover’. The Voice of the Silence can be helpful here too, its by Blavatsky. Detroit’s Dark Moon Lilith conjunct Neptune in Aries is another story in itself, but we’d have to go back to Plum Street, the Grande Ballroom, Monteith College at Wayne State, and when Belle Isle and the Detroit River were mystic magical divine centers. Whew! It has to do with the sensuous first one’s out of the box, the early wild music scenes and riots for higher reason and rhyme, love and truth. Detroit needs more of this archetypal wild woman, Artemis, Persephone, Ishtar and more!

There are two things

children should get from their parents:

roots and wings.

Astrology News for June from Robert of Mayflower~~~

Love starts when we push aside our ego and make room for someone else, perhaps a person we could have never dreamed nor ever were.

-robert of mayflower, ‘Where Steiner meets Osho.’

June 1st-2nd-3rd Mercury trine Mars in air signs signifying meeting and agreeing of minds, contracts, plans, good notions, accurate observations. Also Venus trine Jupiter, and Venus trine Neptune in water signs all in grand trine makes for beautiful love imaginations and fantasies or futures . Great days for creative play, writing, communicating, making friends, healing old scenarios and suffering patterns, envisioning and planning one’s highest self, goals,greatest adventure; time to be the love and truth you want to see in the world. Sense of fulfilling one’s destiny or linking up to good, true, beautiful. If one has their feet practically on the ground this can be a most enlivening and flowering time for love, friends, family, mother nature, mothering and being mothered. Certainly a great time for yoga, mediation, attuning the the highest principles of truth, life, love, compassion, and virtue mind. Dumb sucker or dreaming into better futures? Hard to tell eh? Trust no one but yourself? Be still to know.

June 5th Sun conjunct Mercury in Gemini reveals things needing real honest assessing and evaluating, Venus in Cancer oppose Pluto in Capricorn puts some high flyers and false dreamers in quick checkmate. Such aspect brings out the crazy emotions, jealousy, anger, negative emotions, a sense of let down or being caught in the past, or some negative pattern. Gamblers beware of being set up to lose if not practical in projections and dreams. A wake up call for many. Difficult aspect for addicts (of anything), bad shoppers, mad lovers obsessed and kinky, weird control freaks, and lack of security. Love can go south here. Feelings of loss or rejection abound. Secrets get revealed. All isn’t what it was made out to be. On positive note, sense of protecting valuables, honor, home, little ones; a sense of depth and commitment, hopefully not making one feel stuck or tied down, depressed or negative. Good aspect for cleaning, fixing up, repairing, restoring, renewing sense of compassion for all who suffer and a selfless willingness to keep learning till one can help the world round find more loving peace and co-creative freedom. For some a sense of ending, completion, death. For others birth, loving anew, pulling weeds, cleaning, making sacred again the space for good things to happen.

“Feelings are for the soul what food is for the body.”

-attributed to Steiner

June 6 Mercury square Neptune. Emotions may fall short of logic. Tell the truth, but better yet, live it. Assume you can’t wait for the other to make you happy, be the love you are looking for. Dream but be practical. Some may be hiding something, others exposing. Creative imagination needs outlet. Avoid distractions to main goal to achieve. Read the fine print, avoid gambles or taking unwarranted chance. Perhaps good for artistic or future planning if one is patient. Need to stay present and not let past and/or future lure you out of ‘be here now’ take a good look. Work present for better future. This leads into next day with more false news, fake news, false projections, lies or deceit. Or is it artistic wish to divine the divine and change the future from road presently on? Many sudden shifts in plans. Strange dreams and psychic persuation abounds. Trust nothing you see, half of what you feel, and all that is here now rather than in past or future. Demonizing anyone other than our own ‘habit’ we wear, our own seeing feeding nourishing separateness/shame/blame, is foolish at best, victimizing of self and other at worse. Vanquish demons by calm abiding space equanimity and gardening. Plants won’t lie to you.

*Recent Pluto opposing USA SUN in CANCER Mom Sign? American women birth rate for children at the lowest rate on record, the number of babies born in the U.S.A. last year dropped to a 30-year low. -see “Births Hit Lowest Number Since 1987,” Wall Street Journal, May 17, 2018. Or is it Neptune transit squaring Mars/Uranus midpoint heading for square to Mars while opposing Neptune and midheaven in Virgo, Men becoming impotent. Good at war though eh? Where the Gardeners! USA Pluto return late Capricorn in second house portends of need to return to what really matters, rather than dreaming out into getting richer and richer, higher and higher, and never stopping to grow the roses, forget smelling em, grow em; save the bees, get the beeswax out of your ears and into the soil!

Always write a poem a day,

people will think you crazy

and leave you alone

with Plato,

Hermès, and Athena.

If that’s not enough

To have a party,

Nothing will work.

~robert of mayflower

June 7th Sun square Neptune, Read June 6th leading into this. Neptune can be weird storms, volcanoes, floods, or delusions and false dreams. Good to know if you are dreaming. One can fantasize but know you are. Often with such aspects last few days, media and news full of misleading facts, propaganda, lies, or bizarre craziness to distract real news and hard facts. Good for the muse, music, spiritual insights, flowers, art, poetics, dreamy idealistic romance. If inspired, one is a whirlwind of inspiration; otherwise, little work gets done, feelings of being spacey or out of it, danger of food spoilage, temptation to play hooky. Mystical feelings of union and communion or opposite, loss of common sense and rational mind? Psychic insights are to be had, but keep your common sense.

Mars conjunction South Node at this time adds to the mix with strong unconscious drives for relationship based on physical needs, or sex; while other relations otherworldly and spiritual, but not practical nor incarnated, dreamy too dreaming to come true. Some quarrel and force issue coming across egotistical or selfish. Positive expression is a release of superior force and bravado for purpose of helping self and others to progress pure and simple. A middle way works, tibetan buddhist like. Osho’s Book of Secrets could work, but who is daring enough to live that life, most use spiritual secrets to get their desires fulfilled then take off. Damn. Where are the good guys gals when you need em?! May Truth and stillness listening conquer our distractions, may dharma capture our imagination to matter day to day, life to life, until all the world is divining the divine in each other (rather than projecting at others and demonizing impotent to help awaken, heal or nourish becoming being peace).

You have neither friends nor enemies, you only have teachers. Some show you what to do and you will learn to be like them. Some show you what not to do, or you will end up like them. Keep learning, keep open, then miracles can happen. All miracles spark from a willingness to keep learning. Selflessness and openness to learn is real magic, miracle. -robert of mayflower

The Eternal Feminine leads us forever ON! -Goethe

June 8th Venus oppose Dark Moon Lilith. Get ready, this is a wild one, good and bad. Intense spiritual meetings, redemption of extremes in finding balance, heart of the middle way. Old wisdom meets eternal puer, angels of destiny and redemption. On the other hand some pretty lusty feelings and emotions play with the eternal and temporal elements meeting at this time. In May Dark Moon Lilith in sky made a conjunction with Pluto triggering the wild woman archetype to get wilder and wilder in woman and man. This can be good or bad. Some feel betrayed, others waylaid; some feel empowered but without higher love and truth, enjoy the hour. Yet this can be a putting the separate self, the ego betrays the Higher Self, the Christos, Hermes, Christ, in check. We need divine check mates. Check out the news for how many instinctive astral urges are now in trouble for speech or action, and how many still try to ‘take it to the limit, one more time’ as the music band the Eagles once sang. This May aspect triggered many to attempt to find the most sensuous thing and disappear ‘Lucy in the sky’ like, melt down. Others Volcanic exploded. Ok, if this doesn’t make sense, try this; many are desperate for love or desire or wanted goal and are ready to run over anyone and everyone who gets in the way. That better. Still others, are divining the divine juicy sensual holy in every moment and every person. Some are prisoners of their dream, and others are freed in it. Takes a bit of time to see who is who and what is what; but come June 8th, and the week after, we will see who’s boat is seaworthy. Venus opposing Dark Moon Lilith is not good for grand standing but can be a very good aspect for learning to love differences, learning to shine truth and love and let go of attachment to results, as the Bhagavad Gita teaches (see William Q. Judge edition). The 20-21st of July the Sun opposes Dark Moon Lilith. Look for the strong rise of women to power, while other women quick fall from power. Such aspects have an auric envelop of influence days or even week or two before and/or after. Very strong love urges prevalent, urge to matter, to spirit. Strong need for Dharma mind and perhaps NeoPlatonic thought to see the way through clear and bright in Sophia the Goddess’s Holy Light!

August 10th and 11th Mars in Aquarius going retrograde conjuncts Dark Moon Lilith, Whew! Tarzan now a wall street broker meets Jane now a wild woman from “She would never say, where she came from; yesterday don’t matter, if its gone”, the return of Artemis and the Voice of the Goddess? Conflicting times if you don’t have a good road map (right books from Mayflower Bookshop on Virtue Mind Training and the new Mystery Schools of Love and Truth awakening voice and mind of the Heart of Hearts!).

Let Artemis, Athena, Diana, Dionysus and Orpheus sing in your heart to fulfill your destiny and graduation thesis, read the curving inundating rhythms of the seasons/month/evening and circling stars for your master thesis; then again, just play the instrument.

June 13 New Moon 22 Gemini, brings sense of diversity and diverse expressions or opportunities galore next few weeks. Lots of things to do, try to catch up to unfinished so to get everything done or complete at both home and work so to be free in days to come.

There is no meaning to life, we make it meaningful; or not.

Be the love, the truth, you waiting for. Be it, listen, nourish only the eternal in each other. ~rt

June 14th, Venus square Uranus; creative sparks, a new reaching out, wanting to quicken things up. For some, upsets in feelings or love, or is it new insights and shifts of how to appreciate or care for friends and loved ones? Mid June has Mars conjunct Jupiter/Uranus midpoint, can be very lucky or unlucky in love and money, depending on what other transits one has in their chart. Possible peaceful change for the better. For coming 7 days many attempts to mend the fence, make peace, reconciliations, novel new ways of relating and connecting.

If we never believe in ourselves in deeply rooted feelings there is something higher than ourselves, we will never find strength to evolve into something higher. If we never believe in others in deeper yet feelings that there is something deeper than our self, we will never find the truth there is something deeper than self holds, nourishes, weathers all of us; and we are each and all, all of us. Wake up in your dream and see. -robert of mayflower, ‘Where Steiner meets Osho and Hermetics Neoplatonic’.

Weird fact ~ Virginity restoring surgical operations at all time high, also birth rate at a low. Junk sex and junk food at all time high. Guardian newspaper says one out of ten websites has something kinky or porn on it. Now making and selling sex robots and toys. Where the romance of the soul, the higher self? There are sex classes but where are the love classes, the higher octave spiritual love?

June 21 Venus in Leo oppose Mars in Aquarius during Summer Solstice. For better and/or worse, confrontations, strong polarities in sex and love, friendship and family, ego and egoless. To re-establish or to feel separated from. Some shine, others get a shiner. Lovers fight argue, conflict or oppose, possible mishaps, accidents, rudeness or overly strong vs over sensitive hurt. Some behave like dogs and cats, others have a wild but good good time. Separateness ego desire or want/need may clash with sense of greater whole, family or community. Freedom vs security/control irritate or make edgy the auric field and day. Lots of energy if one knows how to use it. Good to know what you don’t want avoiding unnecessary hassles. Drive safe and slow, avoid road rage or arguments going nowhere fast.

The ultimate secret of lovers is that someone has to surrender, or is it someone has to spark? But surrender to what? The eternal highest truth, the deepest rootless root, stillness distilling every experience into elixir of enlightenment? Sparking what? A song invokes the land under our feet, our distant and close neighbors to meet? A weaving of every truth and love this planet ever felt into a rosary mala of love frees the song in our heart? At best we have half truths (hermetic means half revealed half concealed), till the other gets it. Sometimes we are ‘the other’. Don’t be an alien, love the earth.

`robert of mayflower

There are people in every time and every land who want to stop history in its tracks. They fear the future, mistrust the present, and invoke the security of a comfortable past which, in fact, never existed.

-Robert Kennedy

“It takes courage…to endure the sharp pains of self discovery rather than choose to take the dull pain of unconsciousness that would last the rest of our lives.” ~Marianne Williamson

June 23 Mercury oppose Pluto makes for difficult communication unless much wisdom hindsight and compassionate loving kindness in play. Facilitate lasting wisdom, gain insight from the past not to repeat it. Plant seeds and support one another’s higher self or wholeness journey. Avoid getting stuck on details and derailing from the track. This may be tough travel or communication day for some. For others deeper insights and further research prosper. Secret and opposing views warp the field of space.

“Wherever you’ve been, and whatever you’ve done so far, your entire life was building up to this moment. Now is the time to burst forth into your greatness, a greatness you could never have achieved without going through exactly the things you’ve gone.” ~Marianne Williamson

Love is higher than opinion. If people love one another the most varied opinions can be reconciled – thus one of the most important tasks for humankind today and in the future is that we should learn to live together and understand one another. If this human fellowship is not achieved, all talk of development is empty. -Rudolf Steiner

June 25th Venus square Jupiter. Love abounds, take care not to over do it. Watch needless expenditure, yet some things are worth shooting for, freedom of space, giving space,feeling both earth and star!

There is nothing worse than aggressive stupidity.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

June 26th Mars goes retrograde until August 27th, from 9 Aquarius to 28 Capricorn. The desire for the new freedoms get frustrated with needs for security and reliable regularity. Innovations and situations of love, relations, sex, flings for new desires or bigger stomping grounds need to reflect, think before rashly acting, and patiently work for long term practical goals and not flings of imaginative fancy that may now back fire on you. Some think this not a good time to initiate conflict, struggle, war, new projects without danger of backlash or failure. Mars wants to act, do something, be physical. Good for yoga and gardening, cleaning, revisiting friends and goals, but perhaps tricky when voyaging into new territory without being well thought out. The Sun/Saturn is lack of control or too much control squashing creativity and freedom. Bad time to be angry, demanding, aggressive or possessive, over assertive or flamboyantly blurting proclamations. Full Moon in Capricorn gives further vibe to this mars retrograde time. Some get hard worked for respect and good prospect, others get hard karma demanding further work or paying past debts. Such aspect is most strongly affecting early Fixed signs Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, Aquarius planets, and late Cardinal Signs houses and planets of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra, Aries (Next Mars retrograde in 2020, Sept 9th to November 13). This Mars retrograde late June into August may be a tough one. July 19-20 Mars will conjunct S.Node. On day Mars goes retrograde, Mars is opposing Venus, and the Sun opposes Saturn exactly.

“We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.”

——Louis D. Brandeis

June 27 Sun oppose Saturn tends to force reality and long term goals into affects and effects onto the days here. Some fall from airy fairy dreamy sweet nothings to terra firm ground. Some choose to stay home more often. Some study and prepare for better days and nights. Some see the fruitions of their good work. Doors close on some, certain events reach climax or ending or strong turning point, perhaps a sense of return or need to return. Happiness when alone. Hotter and colder, give love compassion and be patient.

Since the days of Greece and Rome, when the word ‘citizen’ was a title of honor, we have often seen more emphasis put on the rights of citizenship than on its responsibilities.

-Robert Kennedy (i met him, talked, touched. Love em and carry em in m’heart!)

Rise above the thorns of life long enough to know yourself a rose, a spirit roots earth and screams to be as vast as the sky and sun, circling stars and planets on the run singing one mantra; i love you, i love you, i love you. Be mad with love, all the others facts are maddening. Be One Truth, Love all in all even this moment still. ~rt.

June 30th Mercury square Uranus. Genius moments, mind reaching out further than grasp perhaps. For some tough communications and need to re-think or review, update, or get higher view. Avoid beating your point to death. Patience and loving kindness needed here. Need to tweak or make technical adjustment. Actions need to back up words, words need activate work, work needs to be smart not hasty. Good time for astrology or tarot reading or research.

Love and compassion, no matter how nuts and idealistic they seem, free us from ourselves long enough to see beyond our self, into a purpose and direction big enough to redeem our every past, enliven our every present and presence, and diving a future worth living into for the sake of each and everyone. ~robert of mayflower

There is a knighthood of the 21st century Whose riders do not ride through the darkness Of physical forests, as of old, But through the forest of darkened minds. They are armed with a spiritual armour, And an inner sun makes them radiant. Out of them shines healing, Healing that flows from the knowledge Of the human being as a spiritual being. They must create inner order, inner justice, Peace, and conviction in the darkness of our time. They must learn to work side by side with angels.

Tolerating organized crime promotes the cheap philosophy that everything is a racket. It promotes cynicism among adults. It contributes to the confusion of the young and to the increase of juvenile delinquency.

Astrology for May and June 2018;
planetary geometry, aspects.
Astrology is the art science of possibilities, tendencies, probability ~~

May 6-7th Mercury square Pluto, and Venus square Neptune. Much talk and concert about what to do about violence, greed, selfishness, drugs, over medicated, who to trust, and what other scary things will the future bring. Danger of tricksters and con artists, promises with no future, and lost adventures. Possible over indulgence of negative thinking, escapism. On positive side, deep researching, reviewing, rewriting, rethinking, and the making of artistic, travel, or future plans. For some the melting of false dreams, for others a letting go and sailing or flying onwards. Tendency to be unsure or not well thought out as to plans and outcome. Need to be smart, to the point, practical yet artistic or beautiful in one’s presentation.

May 8th Sun oppose Jupiter. Tendency to overdue, over indulge, misspend, misappropriate, take risk, moral vs immoral activities, serving greater whole and benefiting others or egotistical or selfish indulgence at cost of others. Many go overboard or get thrown overboard. Others enjoy the peeks knowing too the valleys, keeping a golden mean or balance, middle way, in all things. Could be fun time. Danger of loss if one wrongly invested. Deflation follows inflation.

May 10th, Moon conjunct Neptune in Pisces, idealistic, not practical concerns. Dreamy creative day. Estrangement for those not rooted in practicality.

May 11th Sun trine Pluto, a sense of bringing light to dark places, a sense of sureness of position or path, taking long term view with immediate concern or active result. Manifestation of little things that matter, strengthening inner connections and brining to light inner feelings and matters of concern so to strengthen foundation for future.

May 12 Mercury in Aries square Mars in Capricorn. Immediate needs or wants/desires and long term goals or aims either work together for both individual and collective goals to achieve, or clash. Need to act in the present for sake of the future, not steal from the future for sake of present desire or appetite. Mind and body at odds, conflict between one’s thinking and actions. Avoid arguments going nowhere.

May 13th Mercury/Moon conjunct Uranus. Mercury enters Taurus. A sparkling of mind and feelings with novelty or need for the new; yet greater need arising for security, trustworthiness, lasting quality or value, practical grounded planning. Sudden breaking news for good or ill or both. Grounded plans start to emerge now but sure at end of month for both economic and political maturing. Mercury in Taurus wants talk to matter, actions to prove words, words to be worthy of right action.

May 15th New Moon at 24 degree Taurus. Many plans in coming weeks for prosperity, long term investment, desire to prosper or be enriched in someway. Uranus enters Taurus for several years now. Next seven years could bring about big changes in banking, money systems, monetary workings, possible planetary currency starting in 2020, and shake ups on structure of Wall Street and how we gamble with our investments, how we lose investments in gambling. Creative change in values, clothes, style, and how we think about love and commitment. Many feel sudden urge to be free, others wish more commitment. Uranus wants to lighten the burden of feeling tied down or rooted. Look for wild rides in the stock market, quick money and quick losses. Also wild confrontations and risk in political economics, with possible break throughs or break ups. Taurus wants security and steady predictable, Uranus want freedom and is radical rebellious or unpredictable. Hard to find balance right off. In coming months many get off the fence or feelings of being straddled between this and that, here and there. Many step back or rise above warring opposites or tensions arising from conflicting view and contrary positions either self or other holds. Here premature action or hasty decisions or investment can lead to failure and loss, avoid putting all your eggs in one basket; diversify and/or stay practical. Uranus in Aries is fired up to fight and struggle for freedom and dream or ideal at any cost. Here Uranus moving into Taurus reconsiders the cost and starts to realize long term views, outcomes, possibilities greater than immediate here now. Last time Uranus in Taurus was during Great Depression, Start of WW2, and Abdication of King Edward VIII (possible shift in Monarchy in UK, along with other crazy changes). Mars enters Aquarius May 15th too today in square to Uranus next day. Last time was Election day 2016! President Trump stuff could be up and down and up. This Mars Square Uranus will happen two more times come August and then September 2016 due to Mars retrograde so some new events may take that long to unwind their total picture. Some events are wham bam dunk now. Wow, expect shocking sudden shifts and changes, dislodging of old guard as days, weeks, months, and seven years to come ride on. Taurus and Aquarius are fixed signs and Uranus urges updates, quickening and rising to next level up. Mars can be forceful and brutally frank, so sharp words and conflicts may flare up here last few days or week and in day to come. Those with planets around zero degree fixed signs, Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius, Leo (will feel it bolt and zolt of electrical shock or lightening change). Strongest affected are those born around Jan. 20-21st, April 20-21st, July 22-23rd, and Oct. 23-34. Need to change or be changed, need to cut something out that isn’t going anywhere, need to change self rather than wait for other to make change that may or may not truly please you. Need to avoid rash hasty premature action. Patience and slow but sure will avoid accident or mishap. Take care around machinery. In some parts, difficult or dangerous time to travel. Danger of precipitating anger or conflicts. On the up side courageous or heroic acts, revelations or news forcing change for the better in long run, sudden energizing connections or hook ups, or the opposite….sudden breakdowns and loss of energy.

May 16th Mars square Uranus with Mars entering aquarius. Extraordinary arousal of energy to accomplish task or deed. Deed to leave others free to decide, think, act for themselves. Hastiness or premature action, anger or egotistic force may backfire, cause accident, blow up in one’s face. Danger of explosive situations, rash words or deeds. Rugged individualism clashes with state of the art or established view. Will to free or be free. Electrical difficulties, or storms, sudden shifts or crashes. Difficulties in travel, mishaps. For others breakthroughs rather than breakdowns.

May 17th Moon conjunct Venus in Gemini; love yourself and the other, other and self, the space allows duality to exist simultaneously, love that, bring harmony to the space in and around all beings and things. Sensual touchy feelings abound, good time to hug and converse. Sacred conversing and inner connection is revealed outwardly. Good purchases, making things beautiful, beautifying the mind and heart.

May 18th Mercury trine Saturn May 19th Venus enters Cancer.
Steady thinking practical and grounded lead the way to future progress sure. Venus in Cancer urge to mother or be mothered, or need for such. Beautifying the home and yard, good food and friends.

May 20th Sun enters Gemini offering diverse novel inventive expressions, but too much going on perhaps. Be discerning, discriminate as to priority and what of immediate importance.

May 23 Mercury oppose Jupiter, Sun trine Mars. Tendency to over talk, blow the cover, expose or loosen lips, overspend, or is it something you just can’t pass up? Good time to fix up, clean up early on, play later. Avoid goofing off at work and getting in trouble.Here loose lips may dance hips and loose a kiss, or lose one. Too much information.

May 25th Jupiter trine Neptune, Mercury trine Pluto. Those in airy fairy worlds may have fun day. For sure good for spiritual mystical experience, spiritual healing, love that includes others blessing the world, high romantic grail experience and relations. Avoid over doing or going over the top. Many beautiful fantasies as play here leaving many feeling like they are in a movie. For some this last month and into next full of wonder, surprise, futurity, magic, inner connection, divine intuitions, meaningful or prophetic dreams, spiritualism, and even talking to the dead even if they are still alive (but act like they are dead for all practical purposes). Danger of escapism but beautiful aspect for pleasing times and summery weather in most parts.
The Mercury/Pluto good for new discovery, planning, researching, completing, accomplishing, requesting promotion, further learning and growth.

May 25th into 26th Venus oppose Saturn reveals where love is real or not, where one is delusional and projecting, left alone and wanting, or where one is in need. Time to help less fortunate and attempt to heal rifts and splits. Here reality sets in for those who had their heads in the clouds and feet off the ground. Good for long-term love perhaps for some.

May 27th Moon conjunct Jupiter in Scorpio may indicate completion of something, and new beginning. Good time making connections, planning future, cleaning home, fixing things up, meeting with friends, enjoying outdoors, social life, family, catching up to oneself.

May 29th Full Moon 8 degree Sagittarius. Lots of frank honest yet jovial conversations this last week peeking out and overflowing overflowering into long weekend here. Lots of big and little journeys, meetings, conversing.

June 1st-2nd-3rd Mercury trine Mars, Venus trine Jupiter, and Venus trine Neptune vibe. Great days for creative play, writing, communicating, befriending, envisioning and planning one’s highest self, goals,greatest adventure; time to be the love and truth you want to see in the world. Sense of fulfilling one’s destiny or linking up to good, true, beautiful.

June 5th Sun conjunct Mercury in Gemini reveals things needing real honest assessing and evaluating, Venus in Cancer oppose Pluto in Capricorn brings out the crazy addicts, bad shoppers, mad lovers obsessed and kinky, weird control freaks, and lack of security. Love can go south here. Feelings of loss or rejection abound. Secrets get revealed. All isn’t what it was made out to be. On positive note, sense of protecting valuables, honor, home, little ones. For some sense of ending, completion, death. For others birth, loving anew.

June 6 Mercury square Neptune. Emotions may fall short of logic. Tell the truth, assume the other may be hiding something? Creative imagination needs outlet. Avoid distractions to main goal to achieve. Read the fine print, avoid gambles or taking unwarranted chance. Perhaps good for artistic or future planning.

June 7th Sun square Neptune, dream but know you are dreaming, fantasize but know you are. Good for flowers, art, poetics, dreamy idealistic romance. Otherwise, little work gets done, temptation to play hooky. Mystical feelings of union and communion or loss of common sense and rational mind? Psychic insights are to be had, but keep your common sense.

June 12 Astrology the Psychic Intuitive Art and ScienceTalk by robert of mayflower at Birmingham Community House. 7 to 9 pm, $30.

June 13 New Moon 22 Gemini, lots of things to do, try to get everything done at home and work so to be free in days to come.

June 14th, Venus square Uranus; upsets in feelings or love, or is it new insights and shifts of how to care for loved ones.

June 21 Venus in Leo oppose Mars in Aquarius. Summer Solstice. Some shine, others get a shiner. Lovers fight argue mishap, behave like dogs and cats, or have a wild good time. Ego desire may clash greater need of whole. Freedom vs security or control irritate the auric field and day. Lots of energy if one knows how to use it.

June 23 Mercury oppose Pluto makes for difficult communication unless much compassion and wisdom used to facilitate.
June 25th Venus square Jupiter. Love abounds, take care not to over do it. Watch needless expenditure, yet some things are worth shooting for the stars?!

June 27 Sun oppose Saturn tends to force reality and long term effects onto airy fairy dreamy sweet nothings. Doors close on some, certain events reach climax or ending or strong turn, perhaps return.

June 30th Mercury square Uranus. Tough communications, avoid beating your point to death. Patience and loving kindness needed here. Need to tweak or make technical adjustment. Actions need to back up words, words need activate work, work needs to be smart not hasty.

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.

“The future enters into us,

in order to transform itself in us,

long before it happens.”



Astrology is the karma dharma and science art of possibility, probability, tendency. -rt

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.
