‘The ultimate imagination is each and everyone of us is becoming a god like virtue. Each is awakening the universal spark of love and truth within heart and soul. Each a universal song in the becoming. As jesus said, as well as old testament wisdom, ‘Ye are Gods in the becoming.’ We are virtue heart mind streams in the becoming, artists of the divine. -robert of mayflower

Astrology News——-
Jan. 1st Mars conjunct Neptune to Jan. 7th Sun conjunct Pluto puts a spell of fog and negative emotion on first week. Colds, flu, strange gilded age intoxications, conspiracies and magical webs of insight anew bringing renewed light and hope. Weird extremes in the weather and as reported on my Facebook page and website, uptick in quakes/storms/volcanos. Jan. 10th into full moon on Jan 11th-12th brings things to extremes and turnarounds, reversals with crazy news, blow ups, behaviour and weather extremes, lightening responses., Need to bring things to a higher level adds to tension or release. Avoid things that drain or lead off course from long term goals. Make no promises you can’t keep. Good time for practical down to earth concerns. Miscommunications abound until we get past Jan.8th when Mercury goes direct from retrograde. Take care to avoid taking things too personally. Work on self rather than others. Correct fault lines and wrong habits not promoting one’s true will to the future present. More strange deaths and passings, as well as psychic adventures, dream messages and revelations. Good time to get a good astrology reading, lay back with mayflower book, or pick up some more miso and seaweed for your homemade soups (at mayflower too!).

‘Nature abhors a vacuum and men seem to be following in nature’s example. Remember, especially around elections, to always clean your own house first, be first a cynic to one’s own lack of virtue enough to win change, and always tune your own instrument of heart and mind before trying to re-tune others.’
-robert of mayflower

Jan. 8th Mercury goes direct from retrograde. Big ideas and goals renew the surge to go forward with projects and aims. For some sudden shift in coming days to redirect aims, goals, projects. Slow but sure clarity comes in coming days.
Jan. 10th Sun squares Uranus triggering possible solar activity, uptick in storms, quake/volcano activity, and shocking news, political weirdness and emotional upsets. Sudden news or on alert, shocks of awareness, new facts, surprises, sudden shift or change, turn-a-rounds and new excitements, need for stimulus Urge to progress, be free, awaken, strive for reform. Danger of accident or set back, catastrophe. Surprise news or disturbance. Need to take things to a higher level of activity in truth and virtue. Facts or newly discovered truths alarm and awaken change. This aspect affects 3 days before and after. Lots of changes going on in the world with politics, economics, attractions and distractions, affecting us all. Important to seize the time or opportunity, but also important to find down time for rest, rejuvenation, beauty sleep or yoga, positive changes. Avoid just spinning your wheels and having panic attacks or worries not getting you anywhere but more confused and lost. Sometimes doing more is doing less, getting more done with less effort but more wisdom and focus. Good time to try a new book and insight from Mayflower Bookshop. Come on down! Up!

‘Without inner wealth, wisdom and selfless learning, listening; outer wealth alone will torture and torment the soul. Without the outer wealth of health, education of virtue, value of friendship, courage and fearless for truth, the soul is poor indeed.’ -rt

Jan. 11th Sun square Jupiter brings over the top antics, party or festive vibe into full moon on 12th. Avoid arrogance, prideful boastys, over doing, talking too much or making promises you can’t keep. Good for successful endeavor, recognition, advancement, right purchases.

Jan. 12th Full Moon in Cancer with moon making T-Square to Jupiter and Uranus brings break throughs or break down, plunging somethings and sudden leaps courageous through the air toward new projects/goals/dreams. Strong shifts in weather and emotions. Venus conjunct Neptune adds to the fairy tale magic, or for some the lost slipper and winter blurr. For some, dreams come true and love abounds. For others dreams, goals, love melts and is more on the horizon far away with stars. Illusion and trickery or a magic spell for success? For some divine inspiration, for others cloudy foggy winterization and loss. Good time for future planning, the arts, creativity, music, musing, and share sweet nothings. Good time to re-attune to the gods of virtue and more eternal realities. Mercury entering Capricorn on 12th calls for practical common sense, not over shooting goals, listening to the rules, and avoiding mouthing off or playing big shot egoist making oneself easy target for other’s criticism. Positive side, new leadership and ideas for long term goals, knowing what to let go of to make room for further growth, progress and success.

Love is spirit recognizing spirit, soul acknowledging soul, body and hearts dancing, minds learning….’there is self and other as path, but ultimately it is a ‘no self’ heaven, an All Self Awareness we seek and find. This all self reality is pristine stillness, all inclusive, emptiness in buddhist theory, no separate reality, only dependent arising, non-dual’. Love and Truth the same. -rt

Jan. 16th to Jan 19th when Mars squares Saturn (90 degree hard aspect), tougher weather, tougher going, hard work, need to be paitient, persevering, persistent, with higher aims and values, ideals and aspirations. Good time to help those less fortunate than yourself. Cold weather, cold shoulder? Cool and calm patient or opposite extreme, hot headed. Need to hug more, work harder, love more, take short power renewing naps. Mars is cars and saturn is contractions or negative experience as teacher or lesson giver. Saturn here is Karma unless discipline and sacrifice in work and ethic open doors, dharma is this. Harsh or overly critical language brings harsh reactions. Mars in Pisces often misses its mark or misfires. Need to be compassionate with constructive criticism when called for. Car troubles, difficult travel or communications. Hard work, patience and persistence, pays off.

‘Perhaps the solution of the problem is suggested by these words of Nathaniel
Hawthorne: “We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking
from a terrible dream; it may be so after death’–Alexander Wilder

Jan 19th to Jan 27th when Venus square Saturn and NEW MOON (27th) near Neptune/Pluto midpoint and Saturn/Neptune midpoint. For some curtains close, sad endings, severe times, feelings of being alone or insecure, depressed, caught in the middle of something. A sense of Comedy and Tragedy. For others this is the start of a long journey of spiritual soul unfoldment. For many, selfless new beginnings, for others a slow but sure end game is at play. Good time for ridding oneself of unnecessary burdens, things going nowhere, and wrong habits. Good for yoga, meditation, bodywork, change to healthier diet, voyage for spiritual cleansing or learning. Good time to clean and prep for better futures. Work on changing self to change the world. If you really think you can change the world for the better, this is the time to virtuously act, be true to one’s higher self and universal song of life. Venus is love and Saturn is lack of it…., so give more love, give more than you receive to counter chilling effect of Saturn. Positively Venus/Saturn can be long term commitments, forever love, deeper love and work ethic discipline. Venus/Saturn is loving what you do, or needing to find work or commitments you can love. Venus/Saturn makes for some not feeling loved enough, others smothered or too controlled by such. For still others, deepening of understanding and experience of love. New Moon near Nep/Pluto midpoint indicate power moves, plutocratic dictorial moves in next weeks, a sense of life and death critical states of timing. Over sensitive soul moods, tendency to over react or go to extremes. For some prophetic psychic perceptions, views of past and future shift present stance. Such aspects give doomsday feeling, for others sense of renewal. Renunciation, suffering, illness, lingering negative situation, ecological concerns. Also sense of destiny and duty overwhelm feelings. Need for big view, universal planetary healing view and aim.

When in doubt, start a new chess game. Be sure to complete it. Otherwise wait in stillness for higher orders or insight. This is meditation, watching who is watching, listening to the stillness, awareness without object, consciousness without object, and right action, in that order. -robert of mayflower

Jan. 28th Mars enters Aries till March 9th. A sense of heroic or Michaelic courage, truth, and justice vs. need for disciplined behaviour, better law and order, individual and social justice. Tendency to be over assertive, yet now for the next month or more is the time to act. Act selflessly without attachment to results, act out of one’s pure intention and intuitive ideal. Avoid use of force or blunt volition. See Bhagavad Gita translated by Judge for more on this. Voice of Silence by HPB great inspirational text on this subject of right action without attachment to result. Don’t let your urge to do something, and your fighting spirit, cause unneeded quarrels or accidental occurrence.

“Fear no failure, Court no success.” -Voice of Silence

Jan. 31st Mercury square Uranus, flashes of new awareness, unsettling news, change of mind, irritant to mental flow. Need to think clearly in respect to long term view before acting hastily. Surprising events, shocking news. Good for research and discovery, experimenting within safe boundaries.

Feb. 6, Jupiter goes retrograde in Libra till June. Relationships now deepen or get severely questioned, partnerships evaluated anew. Some excel and some need repair, renewing, reviewing, reevaluating, retooling, reschooling. Many enjoy new encounters and friendships offering more fun, growth, and sunnier creative artistic loving disposition. Avoid over critical behaviour, stick to constructive tips and teaching by example.

Feb. 10th Lunar eclipse in Leo near Saturn/Uranus midpoint. Security and Freedom vie for power or position. Tension to grow, flow, travel, plan better, envision clearer. Present, Future and Past clash with future and present tending to win over past ways, mistakes, plays, and remakes. Something new is breaking through old patterns of thought and behaviour.

“Where two or more gather for sure, human love awakens the river of time, sacred space for souls to arrive, grace the place and divine, how to unfold the mind into heart’s sunshine.”

-robert of mayflower

 

Astrology for the times—

 

March 29th Venus trines Mars good for love and kissing, foreplay and just good old friends at play. Venus early eve square Saturn putting a dampener on affairs, cooling off weather; but for some a deepening of their wisdom mind stream as to what matters and what doesn’t for long run.

 

March 30th New Moon conjunct Uranus while both opposing retrograde Mars on 31st triggers early warning shots of Grand Cross of April. Quakes? Solar eruptions? Storms and Winds of Change? Or just sudden shifts in directions, habits and patterns, goals? Difficult connections, fragile feelings, strong reactions, or is it temporary breakdown in communications. Brains vs. Brawn and instinctive will? Taking risks and being opposed. Storms, natural or man-made crisis or phenomena, mishaps, earthquakes, accidents, war drums, quirky stock markets, and other wild sudden new challenges or adventures arise now and continue to amaze us all month. Many world changes and re-directing impulses present themselves. Also, near genius spiritual creative impulses try to find new solutions and doorways to prosperity while attempting to make peace not crisis or war. Crazy month coming up here for highly unusual events, changes, shifts in Aquarian Age sense of revival or increased awareness of higher consciousness arises. A renewed sense of individual and collective spiritual awakening prevails, along with a need for common sense and universal good spirit, one humanity yet each of inner worth, love for the earth arises. Or so I hope … Many breakdowns and breakthroughs, challenges with communications, electricity, lightning, satellites, and new vulnerabilities to truth and love.

 

“You can’t find light in the dark, not really. Dark can’t make sense of itself. The same old finds the same old. If in the dark, turn on a light; learn something new. When you turn on the light, the darkness flees. That’s why the Mayflower Bookshop is here, to turn new lights on! For others, Mayflower can help the mind find rest, quiet, the holy dark.”

-robert of mayflower

 

April 1st, 2nd, 3rd Sun triggers the April Grand Cross. Hopefully the Sun brings us light, warmth, insight and love. Sun square Jupiter on 1st expands our thinking. Sun conjunct Uranus on 2nd shakes, rocks, and rolls us to new arrangements and sudden shock changes perhaps quaking foundations with new realisations. Sun square Pluto on 3rd arouses a politics of compassion or one of reaction. Strong indications of what’s to come later in month may appear these last and next 3 days. This is a really good time to make the changes in self and surroundings you’ve been waiting to make for some time. Update, don’t re-negotiate. Lots of challenges but lots of good things happening too. Can be a bit of a chaotic time perhaps as the world still works at learning to make peace/balance/harmony with self, other, and environment. These first three days in April can be vastly enriching and rewarding, but also a time forcing strange bedfellows together for odd or upsetting reasons and circumstance. It’s a make peace not war time for some. World events staggering in their future potentials and possibilities. Vicissitudes and provocative events this month cause ripples and waves in reality, world media, economics, science; along with many knee jerk reactions. Expect sudden change of direction or change in response from self to other or other to self. Expect the unexpected, yet have to expectations. Step out of the light to let others shine to earn long-term kindness. New initiatives and remarkable responses to find immediate solutions to problems. Markets, politics, geopolitical hotspots tingle and twist, gush then reverse, and perhaps even drop out of sight. Caution advised during these times. Mercury goes into fiery Aries on April 7th possibly making for hot shots and hotheads, so be cool near volcanic emotional activity. Sink holes are expanding so learn to fly in your wisdom and compassion. Enthusiasm good, anger bad here.

 

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

-Martin Luther King Jr.

 

“Love your enemies.”

-Jesus and Buddha said that.

 

Sun opposes Mars in retrograde on April 8th further triggering anger or weird accidents and precipitive danger. Need to attempt quick resolution to expanding problems. Avoid negative emotions exploding into disruptive events. Last 3 months a foreshadow of possible coming events.  Events starting to unfold last months more fully emerge now in first days of April. Tendency to get carried away, yet also time to be actualised to manifest one’s dreams. Yet tough time to daydream this month! Sun/Mars is sure fire action hero stuff, but also a dangerous time to take risk or travel. Avoid stress, use of risky machinery, avoid arguments and impulsive acts, use of force or anger. On the light side, the Sun brings light of intelligence and understanding, resolution, if one listens and is clear-minded, right hearted. Mars tends to act and not listen, act and ask questions later. With Mars retro avoid hasty or rash actions triggering mistakes, accidents, or misfortune, loss. Higher octave of Mars is Buddhist Compassion and Wisdom in practice. Anthroposophically speaking, Buddha now on Mars. Buddha is working on and in the Astral Plane of dreamtime and emotions with Wisdom/Compassion, selfless ennobling virtue action. Mars is also Michaelic Wisdom and Courage to do the right thing with a heart of gold, love and truth. The Sun makes for the light of moral imagination possible, the rising or uplifting consciousness in the spirit of the good, true, and beautiful. May that happen! Om!

 

“When he shall die, take him and cut him out in little stars,

And he will make the face of heaven so fine

That all the world will be in love with night

And pay no worship to the garish sun.”

-William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

 

“Love doesn’t have to rely on another, we are love. When you realise that, there is no falling or rising in love, only being, forever shining in love.”

-robert of mayflower

 

April 11th-12th Venus conjuncts Neptune. Some balloons and illusions pop. For others, the little red balloon of imagination is starting to carry them to success. Such aspect can create mystical magical love, romance, escape, private gardens and parties, secret affairs of higher airs and nomenclature. For others, the dream is melting. Security and tradition struggle with progressive and perhaps needed change, fresh air and ideas.  Need to simplify or purify self, diet, environment. With Venus in Pisces, follow your love; don’t follow your fear, need, or false imagination or projection on others, the world. Good time to have a talk with God, one’s deep silence, the ocean of love compassion lives there. One for all, all for One ideal. Avoid projections, shame and blame, name and cheap gain. Time for reality check to keep from miscuing. Avoid unnecessary criticism and emotional negativity. Good time to beautify, clean, sparkle, and shine. Some experience weird psychic phenomena and mysterious dreams, intuitions, sightings. Logical mind and feelings, reason and intuitions may conflict. Moon in Virgo while Venus conjuncts Neptune attempts to join the practical common hard-working sense with the intuitive feel for it all. Travels or plans to travel, plans for future, musical or artistic endeavours prevail at this time. April 14th Mercury squares Jupiter and conjuncts Uranus, bringing innovative, radical, or even revolutionary ideas to the table. A time of strong outbursts of genius and creativity. Take care not to rock the boat unless you are taking over the boat and giving new course instructions. Sudden events and turn of events give new revelations, insights, surprises, and unusual news. Rethinking and upgrading in vogue here. Sudden turnings on and off, and on again. One door closes, another opens kind of vibe. Avoid distractions from true goals and work aims.

 

“Some pick flowers, others plant them. There is a season for everything.”

-robert of mayflower

 

April 14-15 Pluto goes retrograde for 5 months (big plans take that long, or is it mistakes taking that long to fix!). Tendency to try to reverse one’s wheels or face karmic fate. Or is it sitting back and taking a deep breath to re-examine the state of affairs in light of a bigger picture. Dangerous quirky time for markets, investments, turn arounds (also April 20-24th period). Higher Angels of destiny are also at play here above and behind the scenes. Powerful moves made this month in the world chess game, proving to either further the game or even tilt the game out of balance. Also note, a total Lunar Eclipse visible in U.S.A.

 

April 15th with Mercury square Pluto! Tough news day for sure. Need for clear, sure decision-making. Cardinal Signs and houses beware: Aries/Libra/Capricorn/Cancer (see your chart for houses). Eclipses (and we have 2 in April) have a way of cutting things out and plopping new realities in. Big changes for some. Pimps and pimples pop, others betray or radically change moods and mind, posture, position. Eclipses also good for becoming intuitively sensitive. Sometimes too sensitive. Sudden changes and turn-arounds. A sense of need to eliminate negative elements or be eliminated. Danger of negative projection and making strange difficult ultimatums, which may back fire. Yet, those in the power often use eclipses to make strong changes in structure and directions. Chance of moments of very poor weather, difficult communications or relations, sour dispositions. Need for much patience and compassion in dealing with others’ problems. Attempts to further positive goals, may feel held back, other’s resistant. Sense of immediate needs and demands, and frustration achieving such goals or results. Good for research, deep thinking, taking one’s time and being patient. Heed warning signs of danger and impending necessities. Indications of fate and destiny abound. Need to rid oneself of unnecessary baggage or negative habits. Danger between this and next eclipse of 29th of major awkward or shocking changes. Good time to cut out all bad habits and to keep mindful of one’s own thoughts and feelings. Here negativity is its own reward. Virtuous actions worth 1000 times more spiritual merit (inner wealth, wisdom, love). Libra Full Moon time calls for balanced heart and mind when it comes to personal needs and desires vs. those of others. Work and personal life need strike new balance. Avoid negative criticisms that are not constructive or educational towards bettering oneself.

If all this is confusing, let me put it this way. Work on yourself and try to leave others alone or to their own means of learning, growing. Go inward and kneel at a heart of compassion for all.

 

“Love is a madness, for others reason is. Genius is to grow a garden and friends anyway.”

-robert of mayflower

 

April 16th Mercury oppose Mars, Good insights and ideas come but difficult to express in a way others understand. Tendency to quarrel, argue, debate. A sense of getting one’s thoughts aired, yet disagreements and contesting abound. Avoid gossip and loose windy thoughts/talk going nowhere. Tendency for one-sided intellectuality. Logic at odds with feelings, demands or needs with instinctive passions. Danger of crash and burn, pushing others too far, or going too far with demands or ultimatums. Yet need now to give warning and draw line of how far one will go to accomplish aim and avoid disputes, or how much one can take before breaking point reached.

“Love is freedom from the self, freedom is compassion for self. The true nature of the Self is freedom and love. Here, truth is the housekeeper, service to higher love/compassion the soon to be master student.”

-robert of mayflower

 

April 17th, Moon occults Saturn and Venus trines Jupiter. Some parts cold, others warm up friendly and lovingly. Long-term love works here, as well as practical true and tried methods of operations. Sense of new friendship while good old friends seem golden. Happiness in little things. Negativity is its own reward, so be sweet and warm and patient to win this day. Be the warmth and love you want. April 17th Venus trines Jupiter and on April 25th Venus trines Saturn giving an 8 day window to future Jupiter trine Saturn in May Vibe … Great time to make big plans for the future. Good time to follow your love and bliss, gather round you robust friends and make virtuous vows for future trends, family, friends, community, and world peace endeavour, joy, prosperity. This can be a most fortunate time, especially for those with planets and houses in water signs (see your astrological chart for where your water is hidden).

 

“The public is wonderfully tolerant. It forgives everything except genius.”

-Oscar Wilde, from The Artist as Critic

 

April 20th The official Grand Cross is in Play here! Jupiter squares Uranus, Jupiter oppose Pluto, Moon triggers Pluto/Jupiter/Mars/Uranus. These are critical days for many – a realisation and major understanding, event or happening potentially forever changing your life. A real sense of new beginning but also a sense of ‘death and rebirth’ for some. In ancient Egyptian Initiation, Osiris lays in death-like coffin for 3 days and then resurrects or ascends. Our soul is contained within the symbolic three days within the physical, emotional, and mental plane. Initiation or coming to wisdom, is letting the Universal Spirit of love and truth awaken our Souls to shine in a new way within its three sheaths or bodies. Same wisdom for Ishtar the Goddess of Spring. Jesus the Christos descending into hell for 3 days reveals this enlivening and renewing rejuvenating of the physical, etheric, astral bodies. This is a big part of the Easter mystery. See Steiner’s ‘Festivals’ lectures. Spring has for better and worse arrived and we slowly again raise our consciousness along with the flowers and rising sap to honour higher skies, stars, angels, virtues, above and within us. Strong shifts in how we look at life occur at this time, April 20-24th. At this point it’s clear what we are dealing with to survive and thrive as a planetary culture, community, and people.  A sense of progress and change, quickening and growth; or a sense of crash and defeat, thickening and slow down fill this time period with change. Markets and weather highly provocative and may go to extreme or reversal. In politics and the entertainment arena, more than a few heads roll while others quickly rise to new fame or power. This month into May, events continue to play out, even to July/Aug where things take a much more positive up turn. Weather can be really weird in parts of world, especially beginning, middle, and 20th to 24th April. Intense hot vs. way cooler, wet vs. way dry hot, up vs. way sinkhole down these days. The grand cross reflects how many feel crucified and nailed to some unfortunate situation or life process. For others the cross is reflective of spiritual and material manifestation, incarnation and realisation of the ideal, one’s higher aspirations and dreams. The cross can be a four fold incarnation or manifestation of the higher self. A realisation of one’s goals or desires. Plato said the World Soul is “crucified”, meaning fourfold, cubed, on the square, in time and space within each individual. (See my book ‘Astrological Aspects the Art’ available worldwide for further esoteric and practical wisdom on this; i.e. platonic solids and chakras, four Noble Truths and Rudolf Steiner’s ‘Foundation Stone Meditation’, astrological aspects, the descent and re-ascent of the goddess).

 

“True change always happens from within first. Events unfolding now are but decisions and actions of the past, our karma. How our inner self interacts and participates with life creates the future.”

-robert of mayflower

 

April 21 Uranus Squares Pluto. Forced change for many, others make major decisions affecting self or other.  Need for yoga, meditation, relaxation arts, contemplation, patience and new learning to deal with the stressful times. Tendency to rebel or criticise without real alternative wise solutions. Need for truth and higher-minded awareness. Need to address suffering in wise ways. Helping others to help self is key here.

 

“Sometimes when the grasshopper’s cage door is left open they don’t jump for freedom, sometimes they do.”

-Trebore Tau Bodhi

 

April 22 Mars square Jupiter triggers ACTION and heroics or foolhardiness for some. The Grand Cross is totally activated positively here but the days to come may give many a crisis opportunity challenge or obstacle. Here the hero wears a thousand faces, the fool but one. Important time to not be too exuberant or over done. Appropriate well-defined action needed. Tendency to overdo or party too hard, over eat, or over satiate. Here, as Goethe noted, too much good is evil. Need to act for sake of others. Heroic acts and selfless endeavours go far here.

 

“Scientists are always looking for speed, quickening thing and thinks up. They want to find something first and faster, even go faster, than the speed of light. But forever will darkness be first and last, there from the beginning and there when we finally arrive, and even after too. And the secret of darkness is easy, it is love, the heart yet unfathomed, unknown, alone and yet still one. It is love, and the light of stars and mind is its consort.”

-robert of mayflower

 

April 23rd Mars opposes Uranus triggering Grand Cross and causing reactions and backlash from preceding events and actions. Mars/Uranus is lightning fast changes, reactions, accidents, misfires, calamity, violence, crashes, explosive events, mishaps. Yes it can be a call far and beyond duty, incredible luck and bravery, success. For most this is dangerous time so play it safe. Expect strange mysterious events in high places of religion, politics, economics, and the every day flow rhythm. Squares and Oppositions in astrology put one into the center of the action, trines are more visionary or feeling oriented. Avoid wild man action hero antics or demanding too much attention or center stage. This grand cross in cardinal signs signifies world events where everybody, like it or not, feels they are tossed into the action. On the other hand, one could say, that each and every one of us by the way we live, breathe, think, feel, act, are co creative agents for change. Each of us has a front seat, or on stage center, of the action. How we live our life, creates, or co-creates, the world. We are the world, and yes we are also alone. Though it’s all crazy at times, we can be intelligent enough to share and care, make peace with ourself and the world.  Each of us is both at fault and at cause. To see oneself as victim is spiritual suicide, even if it is true materialistically or outwardly. From the higher point of view, our higher self has put us here to learn and we picked the time and circumstance to perfect our self learning world education. There is no shame or blame or game playing here, there is just learning and returning till we do it right. We come to grow and know ourselves as co-creative beings with the whole of life, the future of the world. How one lives their life is a vote for futurity good or ill. Only you and God, or Divine Mind, know for sure how you voted. I can only take a good guess and my guess is that many frustrations come from not voting or not voting well. Ha! Soul wake up, live your highest ideal, virtue, dream, bliss, angel, call it what you will. Avoid drugs and negative emotions that could obscure your clear highest sense of all Life. Live the life to know the teachings, yourself, the other. Om Ah Hum, May it be! Obviously with crazy aspects like the ones earth has been going through since Pluto went into Capricorn. Some real estate and goods will go sky high in price while other places and faces fall into disarray and free fall in price and merit. Many relationships are re-thinking goals and definitions of what is happiness and who do I share the adventure with. The times are a’changin, re-arrangin’. The future is re-strategizing for some, or alarmingly disengaging for others. Strangely enough, this could be a highly prized time to have a baby; for others the worst time. Same for all big doings, plans, and future projects, projections, and precipitations of art, biz, and spirit.

 

“Rose gold diamond dew on the green, wet with morning dreaming May flowers trembling like young butterflies to wing weaving blue skies on tips of asparagus and pastel petals momentarily still twinklings eternity grants hearts with eyes to see.”

-robert of mayflower

 

April 25th Venus trine Saturn, Moon conjunct Venus, Sun conjunct Mercury. Love and reality, common sense and kindness, conscious recognition and smarts make sense of past events and set proper stage for fixing things up, bettering the future, making good on promises, making amends and future plans.

 

“She told me I was no Keats, and I realised again nothing would hold me until I could be myself alone with her.”

-Aria Fairchild

 

April 27th Moon again triggers past grand cross, after shocks, anger, hurt, emotional overload, intense feelings. Good day to catch up, heal, clean, rest, renew, reflect on the times past and to come.

 

“It’s hard to say if the kiss lit the stars or the stars lit the kiss, but heaven and earth touch lips when a heart opens to another.”

-Aria Fairchild and the Mayflower Guitars

 

April 29th Solar Eclipse in Taurus affecting fixed signs and houses primarily (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius). Sudden cutting off or being cut off, sudden change of plans or future, sudden change in day-to-day rhythms. Mercury trines Pluto giving help in finding intellectual understanding of very moving events (for some).

 

“Without Love this world is haunted,
Without Truth this world is alone.”

-robert of mayflower

 

May’s tough aspected days are May 10th, 11th, Full Moon May 14th, 18th/19th, 28th for those making plans. Good days of positive aspects include May 3rd, 4th Moon/Jupiter/Saturn give future insights, 12th, 15th for some, 18th for some, 24th especially Jupiter trine Saturn, 25th, and 31st for some. May 22nd to 24th Moon/Jupiter/Saturn grand trine melts minds and hearts into allegiances for the good true beautiful, friendship and happiness.

Robert of Mayflower’s Astrological News and Views for February 2014

(248) 547-8227 or on the net at www.mayflowerbookshop.com

 

“One day a woman I know came face to face with heroic beauty, that highest beauty which Blake says changes least from youth to age, a beauty which has been fading out of the arts, since that decadence we call progress set voluptuous beauty in its place.” -William Butler Yeats, from the Celtic Twilight 1893

  • Jan. 25th into early February influenced by Ceres (Asteroid) conjuncting Transformation Point (i.e. Uranus, Neptune, Pluto midpoint). Issues around mothering, breastfeeding. Who to let in or not. Who to feed/nourish or not; who to love or not. Who to mother. How to redeem lost parts, one’s lost youth. What is nourishment to body and soul, spirit? What is wholeness? We have sex education but do we have love education? Spiritual education of the Soul? And should the government mandate breastfeeding? See: http://www.latimes.com/nation/shareitnow/la-sh-breastfeedinglaw-20140131,0,6963031.story#. Also see: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-25629934
  • Near the end of February, Vesta – the goddess of hearth, flame and critic of perfection or righting things – brings clearer focus on true goals. Vesta conjuncts Transformation Point (T.P.) (Jan. 25th into Mercury direct time on 28th). In the same time frame, and in first few days of March, Mars and N.Node near conjunct T.P. Mars triggered T.P. during Boston bombing. Volatile financial markets, as well as ups and downs in emotions. Check critical days below. Good or ill happenings can occur to force us to grow in new ways. Not always fun. So end of month into March is a critical time to take extra caution and care to get things right. For one thing, Congress needs to raise debt limit or U.S. may default on debt by end of month. Jupiter square Uranus at end of month portends breakthrough techniques and energetics that truly stir inner and outer growth, but not all will be happy. More vissisitudes in world markets then. Feb. 3rd Moon triggers the coming Jupiter/Uranus, which always spins surprise, shocks, and reversals. And then does it again the other way. Volatile inner and outer weather for sure.
  • The still lingering influence of Jupiter opposing Pluto energizes serious thought on search for a more harmonious system of world government and economy allowing for greater peace to family and friend. Until the Grand Cross in April; market & stock fluctuations, extremes in weather and human relationships, and the pressure and stress to grow in new ways persist at an extraordinary speed and pace. The universe and world is changing and we must change with it or show the world new ways of virtue and wonder from within ourselves. If there was ever a time to spiritually and creatively awaken to both our sense of self destiny and world fate, it is now! Hey, its time to read a good book from Mayflower’s Spiritual collection!
  • Critical and Eventful Days for the month (extremes in weather, emotions, markets) include (give or take a day) Feb. 3rd, 6th, 11th, 14th, 18/19th, 21, 25th/26th, and 28th into a few days of March. These are days to be more cautious of taking risks, yet also days where great changes and progressive motion can take place if you know what you are doing, wise and skilful. Markets and emotions may go to extremes here. All heading for climacteric of positive change when April’s Grand Cross occurs affecting primarily Cardinal Signs, planets and houses (Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, Libra). Many feel like it’s the ‘Carrot or Stick’ time. Go (grow) for the carrot, the ideal visualized; or be hit by the stick, the reality of life, and be forced to grow. Plato said “if you are willing to learn, anything could happen”. Keep learning about the world and self. Read a book! Rudolf Steiner, Osho, Tibetan Buddhism, Yogananda, Manly Hall – all good places to start learning how to awaken your own gifts and talents, genius and greater capacities.
  • Feb. 1st, Moon conjunct Uranus kick starts new cycle new moon energetics. Lots of new plans in the making along with a sense of the ever-changing and challenging world situations. Wild weather and storms, uptick on quakes and volcano activity may continue to challenge many. Hopefully, we are not in for mini year or two ice age like in latter 1800’s and in 1600’s. Hard to grow food. Speaking of which … price rises in food and fuel? Backyard gardeners and home-brewers listen up: Your time is coming. Moon/Uranus known for upsets and turn-a-rounds, surprise twists and new insights, earthquake/volcano emotions. Sudden shifts again in weather.
  • Feb 4th, Moon oppose Mars – avoid aggressive moves causing angry response. Otherwise, all ahead … go!
  • Feb. 6th, Mercury goes retrograde in Pisces.  Take care in starting new things, signing contracts or making aggreements. Good for being psychic and intuitive perhaps, but Mercury retrograde is notorious for making wrong decisions or being confused, misled, not clear about facts, details, or bottom line realities. Rethink, redo, retroactive, reactive, retract, remember, renew, review, rewrite, religion, recall, all the ‘re’s’ for sure. Good side is to re-think and make better. Mercury retrograde until Feb. 28th when direct. The next day March 1st, New Moon occurs while Mars goes retrograde (huge event here). Then Saturn retrogrades while Venus squares Mars on March 2nd. This last portends of need for strong decisions and actions that have lasting value and merit. The need to secure the future of one’s sense of self and dignity, job and vocation. Concerns over quality of relationship and current events. Mercury retrogrades from Pisces returning to sign of Aquarius the night of Feb. 12th. Many wake up from false dreams, others really start to manifest and realize their dreams.
  • Feb 11th, Moon conjuncts Jupiter and Sun square Saturn. My hope is we have a good solar flare and most happy realistic day. Most likely we will see more extremes in the weather worldwide, hot and cold, wet and dry. Fun for some, others are dying for change. Day of decisions, who is in and who is out, what to do and what to not.
  • Full Moon Feb. 14th on St. Valentine’s Day. Full Moon Opposition of Sun/Moon T-Squares into Saturn, Sun trine Mars too. All ahead, Go! Great 3-day weekend to strike new chords in the song of your life, make good points and bonus points with friends and future dreams, drive your imagination closer to your dreams of realization. Sun in Aquarius conjunct Mercury on 15th with Mercury trine Mars in Libra on Sunday the 16th, brings intellectual realization, clarity, to world events and happenings. Increased awareness and mindful networking/connectivity good. Good weekend for conversing, travel, meeting up with others, making plans, stategizing, getting ideas across, connecting, communicating creatively and clearly with others. In many parts, good weather and mood.
  • Feb. 18th to 20th, into 21st Moon occultation of Saturn may bring rough weather and more, ironing out flaws in relationships. North Node slips into Libra from Scorpio, as Moon in Libra conjuncts node and Mars, giving strong urge to make relationships work or change, re-arrange. Relations (business, fun, or love) need work to further transform or change. Many new plans made this month may take till July to fully unfold and be seen to manifest. July is when Mars conjuncts the North Node after a long retrograde motion. Mars is Libra’s lesson in working with others, not running over others. Learning patience and Tao in the flow to make things grow and go forwards. Love as a two-way street rather than one way. Striving for a new relationship, higher attuned and harmonious. Those who can’t find resonance of working in harmony with others may cause much conflict feeding back on self.
  • Feb. 19th Mercury square Saturn, good for catching up with paper work. Otherwise obstruction or slow going, difficult travel next few days. Hard to get ideas across. Bad karma, or is it attempting to make lemonade out of lemons? (always hard to do in winter). Avoid taking things too personally, keep a balanced view, long-term loving view.
  • Feb. 21st Moon occults or eclipses Saturn. Cold shoulder or cold weather?Serious view of self and world? Good for getting work done, keeping oneself in check, discipline, and on the quest.
  • Feb. 23rd Sun conjunct Neptune. No matter how nutty the weather, it’s celtic beautiful. Weather foggy or mystical or dreamy or futuristic; it’s a good day to dream, be creative, write, paint, sing, escape into spiritual reality.
  • Feb. 25th to March 6th is a critical turning point for many. Need to finally deal with reality, make proper long-term decisions, finish projects or let them go. Many turns of events giving inevitable consequences to future. Much politics behind and out front making strong road ways to what is up in November elections. Perhaps too, major events and happenings indicating more clearly the nature of the coming April Grand Cross. See my video of Dec. 10th 2013 talk at Om Cafe for more details. These times are important when it comes to keeping one’s spiritual practice and virtuous disciplines, diet, and good friendships, support systems. Although these aspects can in parts create havoc and more extremes in the weather, quakes or volcano; it can also suddenly become clear and pleasant as to what to do or not to do. This could be a time of breakthroughs and inspirations, early romps of Spring, especially the days around Feb 26th Jupiter/Uranus and Moon occultation of Venus?!
  • Feb. 26, Moon eclipses Venus and Jupiter squares Uranus. Breakthroughs or breakdowns. Suddenly feeling cut off, or suddenly turned on?! Electrical sunny vibrant cathartic day to boldly go where you never been before. Lots of luck for many, others make dumb mistakes and accidents. Sudden good fortune or loss. Strong shifts in weather and investments, markets. New insights and news, sudden shifts and revelations, new inventions and breakthroughs but quirky and not to be fully trusted with Mercury still retrograde. Leaks and bold statements or challenges. Sudden upsets, turn-a-rounds, sudden victories, or loss. Highly charged day, affecting few days around this time before/after, to make proper adjustments and creative changes to upgrade or update your style, goals, home.
  • Feb. 28th Mercury goes direct and Sun trines Jupiter. Many shifts of gears empowering future. Many sudden insights or news allowing one to upgrade view. Healing the past and letting go of obsessions or fixations or addictions or past woundology psychology is good move at this time. Clear the ground for more positive times to come.

Robert of Mayflower’s Astrology News and Spiritual Views
November 2013

Comet Ison is now in effect affecting all Mutable Signs Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, and Sagittarius primarily. The comet is at 16-17 Virgo Nov. 1st. Comet Ison is passing earth’s orbital plane Nov. 1st (and that’s where the earth will be Jan. 15, 2014). It will be interesting to see if we feel Comet energy now and into next couple months. Comet Ison goes by the Sun, perihelion, November 28th at 6-7 Sagittarius. Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sage Sagittarius primarily affected now till end of November. Usually one feels more alive or sparkling, intelligent and lively when a comet aspects your Sun, Ascendent, Moon. Comets bring sudden revelations, new insights, good wine making, sudden success or failure, sudden suprise rise or fall of leaders and those seeking great deeds or fame. Might be influence on intensifying weather patterns and stimulating lots of new ideas and plans, sudden shifts in relations, calling, directions. Should be a good sky show coming with comet visible to the naked eye. Mark Twain was born during visible comet and died when the same comet came back. He actually predicted he’d go with the comet!

“Imagination was given to man to compensate him
for what he is not; a sense of humour to console him
for what he is.” -Francis Bacon

  • November 1st. Uranus in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn. This is the fourth of seven, indicating an ego wake-up to reality and spiritual thinking, holistic awareness, need to go to higher level or face crisis. Are we acting, individually and collectively, for the best outcome for all on the planet? Does our day-to-day life reflect our highest calling, our higher self? For some folks, this aspect steps up the vibrations, the beat, and raises one’s consciousness to new levels of awareness and capacity. For others it’s the shock of waking up from sleep or ignorant deluded behaviour. Realising one’s higher reality or its opposite, facing downfall or fall back. Feelings unlevelled, shook up, not on the level, or even bedevilled with trouble, difficult karma suddenly being thrown at one. All aspects have a dual nature, higher and lower octaves, that each of us must learn to balance, ascend, make the most of. Watch for stormy weather in many parts (listed below exact dates).
  • November 1st is also ‘All Souls Day’ or ‘All Saints Day’. To the early celt this indicated that all souls will eventually make it to heavenly bliss and awareness. For some this always comes as a shock. To deny the Buddha or Christ, the Christos or Divine Spiritual Spark, in any one of us, is to deny it in some part of one’s self; it will make one spiritually ill. Divining the divine is a work of art and spiritual science (see my new book ‘Astrological Aspects the Art,’ available on Amazon books or on the website listed above, or at Mayflower Bookshop).
  • Uranus squares Pluto the 4th time here (3 more to go) indicating a realisation of one’s own Reincarnating Ego, one’s spirit being, is possible. One becomes aware of one’s own higher purpose in life, or lack of it. Uranus wants freedom, Pluto wants commitment and sticking with the plan. Uranus can be shocks, electrical problemsQUAKES, and solar activity, flares, sudden stormy weather. Pluto can be VOLCANOES, deep emotional eruptions. Much strange psychic emotional weather, weather extremes and storms possible Nov. 1st3rd, 6th,7th, 10th, 13th, 14th, 15th, 18th, 21st 24th, 25th, 28th. (dark stronger aspected days, give or take a day from date at times). We very well may have pretty darn cold moments this winter, especially if more volcano activity; as well as weird warmings. The ancient philosophers thought the weather related to emotional and soul imbalances in humanity. Many now think it is do to pollution, hatred, and non-virtuous acts on a whole. Some others think it’s all part of the cycle of kali yuga. It is astrology’s idea that the planetary aspects have a higher and lower translation or expression and that each of us out of our own free will and thinking and actions make the world what it is. These last series of dates not a good time for those suffering uncontrollable emotions, jealousy, anger, hatred, delusions, illusions, and false fantasies. Good time to make new year’s resolutions early. Good time to let go of the past, forgive but don’t forget the learning lesson; so not to repeat the performance. If you know what you are doing, good time to plow ahead, all ahead go.
  • Uranus wants to start anew but Pluto keeps one stuck to karmic debt, attachments, insecurities, fears, old wounds and memories. Plato said “if you are willing to learn, anything can happen”. Learn new things! It’s time to come into Mayflower Bookshop and obtain Manly Hall’s wonderful book ‘The Secret Teachings of All Ages’. Mention this new quip and get this giant compendium of esoteric and metaphysical wisdom for just $17 while supplies last. Many a breakthrough or breakdown, a breaking up or a breaking down of walls that separate. It is wise not to take great risk during such aspect as this, as well as during weeks following the eclipse coming.
  • Uranus in Aries fire sign wants to start something new, travel, attain new heights, new education, new sense of self-respect. Pluto in Capricorn wants another step up the mountain of success, a step further on the path, another dig deeper into long-term security and not debt, a better job or quality lifestyle, healing and holistic. The square struggles between self needs and worldly concerns, work and calling, karma and destiny. Such aspects in the sky remind us of the exciting but turbulent 60’s as well as the Civil War times in America. There is a need for universal responsibility and compassionate understanding, now more than ever.
  • Uranus aspects are a good time to study astrology. Get started now by coming into Mayflower and purchasing the brand new 2014 Astrological Calendar. Study the aspects day-to-day to improve your odds of staying in tune with the cosmic mother!

“Whenever in doubt, always tell the truth; it will confuse the enemy.”
-Captain Bob and the lost paddle ship band.

  • November 3rd Solar Eclipse (Fixed Signs and houses affected most, Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius, Leo). This is second of two eclipses in a row, the first affecting cardinal signs mostly. Eclipses call for sacrifice, surrender, and service to our higher self, others. ‘Cut out the negative habits’ or have something ‘cut out’ of your day-to-day life is one motif of eclipses. Eclipse wrong habits and negative tendencies before they eclipse or cut off you. Eclipses often reveal secrets, bring to light dark realities. Eclipses can also put one into the dark about certain things or people. Check your own chart to see where 11-12 degrees Scorpio falls in your chart. Eclipses are known historically for sudden rise or fall from power, or suddenly being graced or falling from grace. Especially in effect this first two weeks of November. The eclipse on 3rd till Nov. 6th when Sun conjuncts Saturn, marks a possible history maker for events in the world. From severe weather in parts, strong political turmoil, downfalls, difficult break ups, pitfalls, and karmic justice and reprimands; to very strong political or militarypower moves, control freaking, need for conservative strengthening, strong corporate moves, take-overs, and marriages (or break ups) for new freedoms or long term security; this could be a very powerful week or two for business and the economy; lets hope a strengthening one, walling up the leaks and cracks in the system. Mercury goes direct from retrograde on the 10th, hopefully making the rest of the month more cheerful and sunny honey like. Many weird negative turns of events turn around again before month is over, or in summer of 2014 when Jupiter enters Leo.
  • November 6th into 7th Jupiter goes retrograde. Emotions shift up and down, questions about security in home and day-to-day life style. Often making for strong considerations of either moving or fixing up the living quarters, apartment, condo, or home. Beautify and fix up your place to be sacred and warm to the heart soul. Change of diet may be necessary for self improvement. Your body is home to the Spirit Soul! So clean up and beautify. This aspect may shed more light on the need for good ecology and healthy environment, air and water. Strong debates about economy and home security. Good aspect for yoga and meditation. A tendency these coming days to hook up with old friends and go down memory lane. A need for good soup and friends. OM Cafe anyone?
  • November 10th Mercury goes direct from retrograde while Mercury trines Neptune Nov. 11th. Many insights come to further future plans, far-a-way travels, creative love urges, a wanting of daydreams to come true, music and artistic experience and plans. Many want the future to change, some actually do something about it; others just dream on. Dylan said if you’re dreaming, you’re still sleeping. Some dreamers awaken new realities and hopes. Time to cut losses and move on, restore, renew.
  • Nov. 12 Moon/Sun trine Jupiter, many happy plans, experiences, sharings, joy, love. Avoid use of force, avoid anger and undue criticism. Be constructive. Good time to show your best side, reach out and make new friends, hug. Positive vibe and colourful day for success, dress the part.
  • Nov. 13th Neptune goes direct. Many awaken from false dreams, or awaken on how to manifest one’s dream or higher ideal. Strange psychic or spiritual experiences from beyond. Cosmic celestial occurrences or weather, sea changes, add wonder or amazement to the Spirit happening.
  • Nov. 14 Venus square Uranus, sudden shift of plans, sudden love urge or shift in direction, likes and dislikes, fashion, sudden change in weather or arrangements.
  • November 15th Venus conjunct Pluto. Ending of affair, love, commitment, decision, or arrangement. For some a deepening of love or commitment, for others a need to be committed, or an insane moment causing grief or pity. A call to universal and personal compassion. Death of a salesman. At higher level, a deepening of one’s commitment and a ripening of karma. A meaningful ending and new beginning. A need to be serious and considerate of others. A need for compassion. A need for deep love or union. Feelings of not being able to help another. If you chase they run; if they chase you, you run. Could be a weird day. Passionate and intense, intimate and sensual. The day could run diverse. Good to be kind and compassionate to other’s struggles and strivings; especially today.
  • Nov. 17th Full Moon at 25 Taurus. A very passionate and erotic Full Moon rivalling the one in May. Secret wishes for magic in one’s life, or for another.
  • Nov. 21st, Sun into Sagittarius, Moon in Cancer conjunct Jupiter. Good day for rendezvous meetings, joining up and sharing with a friend. Good day for social doing or planning. Good from honest frank to the point conversations.
  • Nov. 24th Sun square Neptune, Moon in Leo; beware of bad art, false news, boisterous bellows of huffy puffy nothings, and ego smartness sharp enough to cut your purse strings and shoe laces. Good day for escaping, doing nothing, donks, songs in the street, nature and high street wanderings, and going nowhere in particular.
  • November 25th Mercury conjunct Saturn brings us back to reality and common sense, hard facts, and need to know, do, and be silent.
  • Ison COMET Perihelion, close run by Sun on 28th. This whole little time period end of month should prove highly exciting and stimulating to all good endeavours, arts, music, making of wine and beer, social gatherings and fun loving times.
  • November 27th into 28th Mercury trine Jupiter, Venus oppose Jupiter, Moon opp Uranus. Good days for striking it rich by good stroke of karma. Joy in sharing, wealth in hugs and good friends. Comet Ison makes loop past Sun on 28th, Make a wish and blow out the lights, should be a bit a magic this night. Lasts into Saturday the 30th’s Sun trine Uranus. Luck and joy and good will go far here. Let go and let good golly miss molly good fortune work for you. Freedom is a four worded thing, “Love no matter what”. Bless and be blessed.

“Our stability is but balance, and wisdom lies
In masterful administration of the unforeseen.”
