**********Dig this next statement ! **********

I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am

the decisive element.

It is my personal approach that

creates the climate.

It is my daily mood that

makes the weather.

I possess tremendous power

to make life miserable or joyous.

I can be a tool of torture or

an instrument of inspiration,

I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.

In all situations, it is my response

that decides whether a crisis is escalated

or de-escalated,

and

a person is humanized or de-humanized.

If we treat people as they are, we make them worse.

If we treat people as they ought to be, we

help them become

what they are capable of becoming.

Goethe, Goethe nailing it here. Profound higher calling!

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

The Universe is worked and guided, from within outwards. As above so it is below, as in heaven so on earth; and man, the microcosm and miniature copy or the macroosm, is the living witness to this Universal Law and to the mode of its action.”

        HPB, the Secret Doctrine, 1, pg 295 (Original edition)

(See Isis Unveiled by HPB for ‘The Divine Pymander’ and her take on the ‘Emerald Tablet’ of Hermes Trismegistus.

AstroNews with Robert of Mayflower

Every astrological aspect has a higher and lower possible manifestation, impression or expression. It is up to each individual out their own unique conditionings, karma and dharma potentials, to find out of freedom, the higher octave or ascending virtue in any and every situation or happening at hand. Astrological Aspects impel not compel, influence not force, inspire with greater spirit, not diminish higher possibility, potential, creative evolutionary awakening.

HPBlavatsky on the Golgotha Experience of descent into ascent, the turning point where ascent of higher consciousness plays into one’s life! Steiner studied HPB and tried to take it further. Now its our turn, eh?!

Starting upon the long journey immaculate, descending more and more into sinful matter(activating ‘matters’ out of ‘separateness’ or divisiveness. -rt), and having connected himself with every atom in manifested space— the Pilgrim, having struggled through, and suffered in every form of Life and Being, is only at the bottom of the valley of Matter, and half through his cycle, when he has identified himself with collective Humanity (the whole, the ONE Spirit permeates all!-rt) . This, he has made in his own image. In order to progress upwards and homewards, the ‘God’ has now to ascend the wary up-hill path of the Golgotha of Life. It is the martyrdom of self-consciousness existence (and the birth of non duality, wholeness, ‘at-one-ment’ in Spirit and Soul with core of all in all!-rt).”

            -H.P. Blavatsky (with my notes), from the Secret Doctrine, 1, pg 288

(perhaps the ‘martyrdom’  is acting out of separateness rather than ‘Oneness’. Healing comes from reuniting or becoming at one with higher ethic and angel, the virtue, compassion, creativity, higher truth.—robert t)

The planets in astrology are the time keepers, what precipitates events or insights. The planets are the ‘astral’ likes and dislikes. sympathies and antipathies, dualities we get caught in. The highs and lows, but in time the wisdom and urge to know love and freedom. With ‘Cosmic Consciousness’ or ‘Christ Consciousness’, Hermes Sophia, Christos awareness, ‘Budhi Manas’, Wisdom Compassion mind can transform negativities to positivities. We can reconcile opposites and transcend duality into a greater sense of participation and at-one (atone, a tone, tonic in music perhaps but here with spirit soul body) with all Life, destiny and co-creative purpose. Astrology and Metaphysics is a artistic language of the soul aspiring to spiritual awakening, compassion, and higher truths good for each and all.

‘The 19 major Astrological moments in January 2022 on into feb/march/april !

Jan.2nd, 1:30 pm set, New Moon at 12 Capricorn, Mercury enters Aquarius. Last 3 days and next 3 days set the inner stage, the vibrations, for few weeks to come! Contemplate, meditate, concentrate, on what to do and not do. Be still, listen with your heart, yet follow your star, higher self, as to guide in future go.

Jan. 3rd Earth closet to the Sun in course of year, 13 nights after solstice, 12 days, Comet makes closest pass around the  Sun, Solstice to Jan 3, even to Jan. 6th (Adam and Eve day, Jesus baptized into the Christ, 3 Magi (physical/emtional/mental find the baby jesus or Higher Self in virgin purified astral body of Heart, in esoteric myth reality). I know this is too much information, but words are difficult to clearly share higher spiritual truths trying to emerge from every religion, philosophy, science, experience and life style. I am trying to share insights into finding the heart’s Hero of a thousand and one nights, the light emerging in every experience really. Its spiritual science, but its often art, poetic, myth reality, and comparative religion. Each must find right thinking, feeling, willing out of freedom, truth, and compassionate love for self and other. Here, ‘Foregiving’ is digesting the past with meaningfulness and learning, and voyaging into greater futures of learning. Till all the world is in co-creative peace, may we travel on!

Jan.8th Sun conjunct Venus, 7:48pm eastern time.

Either a burning sense of love, burning insights, attachments, recognitions of what needs fixing; or a most positive sense of what love is, how to mediate/facilitate/compassionately and lovingly harmonize or creatively lead the positive happening.

“Fear and hatred are essentially one and the same.

He who fears nothing will never hate, and

he who hates nothing will never fear.”        

-HPB, Secret Doctrine, III, pg 541

Jan. 11th Mars square Neptune..

Courage and Bravado, daring to reach the highest ideal, mystical perceptions and doings, creative artistry or musings, music, museum travels in the mind? Negatives to avoid are misuse of drugs, medications, foods (eat simple and chew well), avoid spoilage or spoiling), such aspects can indicate wrong foods, upsets, even poisoning. Unreal emotions overriding logic, rationality, common sense. Ill views or feelings causing sickness or lost hurt feelings with no higher star to follow. Lost at sea, in space, or astray with illusion/delusion/misgivings. Need to be still and on the ground till simple common sense returns. Yet this can be for some highly active imagination for the arts of good, true, beautiful givings and receptivities. Here Knights of the Grail may appear to save the day, or a pure fool may nearly wreck the good moment. Days around this date influenced too. It is important to drive and travel with more defensive alertness and simplicity. Honest simple direct upfront above board, goes far here to properly progress and not have fall back. Real spirituality and growth has no fall back. .With this aspect one tends to ‘over do’, or get over sensitive, falling in on oneself; or falling out, having a falling out, with little or no notice. Tendency of over doing of external obsessions and expressions causing inharmony, upset, inflation, unnecessary swelling, or confusion, chaos. Extra care around flammables, or emotionally upset ones. Fire and water elements in conflict. Positively a need for ArcAngelic Soul urges coupled with Sophia Wisdom and loving kindness.

Good aspect for the arts, music, playing, and not making major decisions or strong action for a few days. Can be over inspired big plans or promises without ability to complete or manifest dreams or ideals. Weird dreams and premonitions may be off. So be patient, compassionate, open to learning.

“As one of the greatest reformers, an inveterate enemy of every theological dogmatism, a persecutor of bigotry, a teacher of one of the most sublime codes of ethics, Jesus is one of the grandest and most clearly defined figures on the panorama of human history….the grand figure….will reign supreme and universal only on the day when the whole of humanity recognizes but one father—-the UNKNOWN ONE above—-and one brother, the whole of mankind below.”                 -H.P. Blavatsky, on Jesus the Christ (or is it Hermes, or Mithras, or Odin, or Christna?) as mentioned in Isis Unveiled book II, pg 150.

Jan. 14th Mercury 10 Aquarius goes retrograde till evening of Feb. 3rd at 24 Capricorn going direct. This strongly affects those born mid to end of January, April, July, October! Expect going back over things from the past to fix, repair, review, renew, refresh, regenerate, return, rewrite, ‘re’ everything. Or that’s how many view mercury retrograde. For sure its a time of reflection and mentally slowing down acting to fast. Take more time pondering anything important such as agreements, paper work, accounting, and more. The Aquarius to Capricorn indicates a mental struggle or striving for what makes you feel secure, what frees you, what makes you happy, and what roots you. Friendship and play contests with work and home needs perhaps.  With Venus in Capricorn also retrograde all January 29th at 3:36 am, there is a strong sense of ‘why go out, the world’s crazy’, or a sense of wanting needing more positive sense of job, calling, career, destiny, higher calling, higher self or ideal spiritual self in relationship to others. Conflicts trying to find good authorities of wisdom and longevity, lasting peace and sure ground, heart.

“There is no God unless you prove it by the way you live. Jesus said you’ll know em by their actions, by their deeds, even better, by their fruits.”  ~Trebore Tau Bodhi

Jan 16th Sun conjunct Pluto, influencing into next day full moon!

“Christ has given you one prayer of which you have made a lip-prayer and a boast, and which none but the true Occultist understands.”  -HPB, Key to Theosophy, pg. 47

(To HPB, the term ‘Occultist’ means person of inner virtue development, selfless truth and compassion as indicated in both her ‘Key to Theosophy’ and her ‘Voice of the Silence’. For further gleanings on Blavatsky’s true teachings on real Christianity, see her ‘Esoteric Character of the Gospels’ or her writings on John’s Gospel and the Word. I assume this quote by HPB is direct comment about the ‘Our Father’ or ‘The Lord’s prayer’. Elsewhere HPB mentions how spiritually true, and real, christians follow the teachings taught in ‘the Sermon on the Mount’. Both Steiner and Manly Hall have similar yet uniquely different but complimentary statements about the ‘Sermon on the Mount’ and its higher conscience and ethic revealings.

Sun Pluto reveals crass egotism and selfishness and/or selfless orientation to higher truths, compassion for all, and dealing with collective issues, values, planetary concerns, pollution both physical and psychic or emotional. Pluto can empower or disempower depending on one’s own heart ethic attainment. Compassion here is the key word for proceeding in Miracle and higher ethic. Pluto often reflects the clash between extremes in spiritual and material values. Jupiter Saturn aspects look for more a balance and long term solution. Thus the last year Jupiter/Saturn in Aquarius aspect promotes this universal search for higher peace and love and what is good for all the world, not just a few (Leo opposed to Aquarius is the separate self resisting a higher call, or its higher octave is Leo the Lion of Sunshine and good will, respect for every individual as a ‘child of God’ or Universal Good, True, Beautiful. Again, these are just words hoping to spark or supplement your own spiritual research and insight.

“Nobody can take the Full Moon!!!” -Trungpa on how difficult it is to embody your own higher self or Buddha Nature. (my take on it).

Jan 17th  full moon 27 Cancer opposing Pluto. Need to heal, purify, address worldly ills, but with patience, wisdom compassion,  not force or authority without transparency, clearness, wisdom. Good days to hide out and renew or to attend and help others less fortunate and in greater need than yourself. A sense of endings and new beginnings, death and rebirth, and constructive critique, not negative dead end, but sense of stirring new beginnings out of the ashes or troubles of the past. A good day to renew, regenerate, stay personal and small, avoid over externalizing oneself, or falling into negativity. This is a strong aspect calling for compassion and action to help others less fortunate. Here the light of higher consciousness attempts to step in to save the day.

Jan. 18th Uranus goes direct at 10 Taurus (Uranus went retrograde last Aug 19th at 14 Taurus opposing 14 degree Sscorpio Pluto perihelion in 1989). Uranus rules over thrusts of lightning bolt quick changes, or bolts of instant insight and uplifting creativity and higher consciousness.  Older folks may experience a total realization of major events in self and world in late 80’s and early 1990’s. And no, i’m not talking just about music life and dislikes. Like the fall of then Berlin Wall and structure of Russia, now we and the whole world need take down the walls of misinformation, miscommunication, duality and warring parts. Time to find a new honesty and higher truth love compassion will hold and heal us all, the planet and all life forms, communities, in it! The USA Pluto return has lots to say about our ethics and morality concerning money, possessions, deep feelings of love and need, military industrial complex, high tech, power struggles, and need for loving kindness and wisdom compassion, non threatening high tech, and more natural bio tech, so much trapped in profit making and power trips rather than humanitarian concern for health, education, good water and air for all, healthy land, food and home..

Many experience sharp changes of directions or reversals depending on what planets and houses are in personal astrology chart involved. Get your chart erected online free, or get yourself astrology program. Call mayflower for more on that if you wish.

Uranus quickens positive changes always but if one is in wrong thinking or strategy, ‘chit happens’ so to speak. Events take place that impel change in one’s thinking, feeling, or actions. Affected the most are those born the end of January to beginning of February, born first week or so of May, born first week or so of August, and those born first week or so of November. Planets and Houses at 9 to 15 Fixed Signs of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius are feeling it the most. Fixed signs don’t like change not preorchestrated and thought out. ’Change or be Changed’ is the vibe. Uranus want something new or higher up vibe to happen. With Uranus near square to Saturn (off by 3 degrees), there is a real perceivable tension between security and freedom, tradition and what worked in the past versus a strong urge to try something new. Having too much energy one moment, and feeling drained in another moment may be a problem. Again, balance in breath and mind, stillness and doings is called for. Try eating a simpler diet with plenty of grains and greens, vegetables, along with your other foods may help. See Self Healing Cookbook at Mayflower. Also try more exercise and walks, less talk and noise. Although with this aspect there is danger of accident, separations, sudden need to compromise or re-harmonize, avoiding conflict.

    Stormy chaotic weather in many parts, or is there a strong renewed sense of adapting innovative and new, alive and kicking with electrical energy, the true and tried security wise and sure wending around and through difficulties. Use more common sense and practicality at work and play. Compromise and harmony, working with others rather than lording over others or blaming others is most helpful. Perhaps taking silent thoughtful contemplative break is needed?

   For the most part, Uranus going direct will help things move forward that were previously stuck, or reviewing, or going through changes without anything really changing. Clarity of mind quick comes here and in coming weeks. Uranus is known for upsets and reversals of patterns, attempting to make new things happen to upgrade or better situations.

‘Change your inner self to help midwife external changes.’

         -trebore taus bodhi

January 24-25 Mars (for a month) and then Mercury (for half month) enter Capricorn. A sense of plowing forward no matter what? Avoid force if you can. Wisdom timing is everything. Spiritual control or wisdom over chaotic circumstances? Or a sense of just ‘’banging’ through life.

A settling down to facts and practical solutions benefiting one and all, not just elite? Practical solutions may not arise to  resolve or address long term problems? Yes, all that. A need to avoid aggressive one way streets and authoritative demands. Need to stick to practical common sense matter of fact.

“Negativity is its own reward.’ -my (robert t) first spiritual teacher said that. Philip Knight was his name.

January 28th Mercury conjunct Pluto Compassion versus discursive mind. Hard nuts to crack. Patience and to the point helps. Compassion for problems good start, then penetrating problems with good long term solutions. Avoid projections and negative alone perceptions lacking higher transcendent view, long term vision for whole of community and earth.

Love is the answer, but suffering and compassionately wise response sparked the quest and right question at the right time. Higher truths protect love. -robert of mayflower

Jan. 29th Venus goes direct at 11 degrees Capricorn, Venus went retrograde at  26 Capricorn on Dec. 19th. Now we make sense of last month and ten daze in matters of love and money, appreciation and reception of what life offers. One develops a sense of love that heals, sustains, lasts, gains wisdom and secure connection, furthers futures and insures growth, rooting and ascension of Consciousness and spiritual awareness.

In the case of ordinary people, only insignificant portions of the astral body, the etheric body and the physical body are transformed into Manas, Buddhi and Atma, or into Spirit Self, Life-Spirit and Spirit-Man. Jesus of Nazareth was a Chela of the third degree, and his bodies were therefore in a state of high purification.  ~Rudolf Steiner, dec 2, 1906

Jan. 30th Sun square Uranus, quick changes, cures, adjustments to aims, goals, directions, job or calling. Important that worldly aims and work don’t conflict too much with home and inner life, sanity, and virtue values for common wealth, goodness, health. New light and insight pushes us forward to grow, progress. Again, Uranus often associated with sense of urgency, quick change, reversals, upsets, winds and electricity, or lack of , for change.

Change for its own sake is not real change. Real meaningful and lasting change takes place when one’s mind is at rest in the heart, when one silently listens fully to what all of life is teaching. Here the real student of the mysteries appears, out of nothing and everything, right mind arises.

       -trebore tau bodhi, wisdom gold.

February 1st New Moon 12 Aquarius is degree where Comet Leonard cruised in around Christmas into january 3rd several degrees more. A sense of purification and cleansing takes place in next weeks. Also sense of composting or getting rid of unnecessary clutter inwardly and out. With Saturn close to the Moon, extremes in the weather; some places really cold, other world places may go extreme in other direction, hot. Same with emotions and thoughts. Good time to imagine to come the best for self and world round.

A concern to be and have real friends, hopes and dreams without a sense of attachment or clinging, but a sense of renewal and freeing.

“Human perfection consists in the falling away of the lower soul-forces, so that only the higher forces remain behind; in future, man will no longer have the lower forces; he will, for example, no longer have the forces of procreation. John’s (teachings of the WORLD WORD in Gospel of John/Revelations, Lazurus etc) soul-power above all will raise those lower forces to the loving heart. It will send out streams of spiritual radiance,love, and spirit good. The heart is the most powerful organ, out of freedom and truth the mind directs. Here a call for Christos Sophia, the divine heart and mind to lives in humankind. The lower soul-forces are then raised from the abdominal regions to the heart.”

   ~An RT Adaption of Rudolf Steiner quote from, ‘The Mystery of Golgotha, Dec.2, 1906 talk (thank you Rudolf Steiner Archive!)

Don’t you love later in life Sergei O. Prokofieff’s injunction to share Steiner’s Anthroposophy win only non-anthroposophists!? Hmmm. For that matter, Spiritual thinking, science, politics, money, religion, all of it, needs to be all pervasive, honestly transparent, and for the good true beautiful to flower within us all! Or so i see and understand it.

Feb. 16th Full Moon 27 Leo , at 11:56 am. also Venus conjunct Mars. Jupiter sextiles Uranus next day Feb 17th! Major moment here where wisdom love and compassion attempt to get the upper hand over greed and power over, rather than power through, warring parts seeking new harmonies. A new sense of harmony empowers peace and love, good will and happy workings.  Such aspect intensifies love matters and passion for the arts or progressive deeds.

March 2nd new moon is at 12 Pisces, also mercury conjunct Saturn. March 3rd has mars and venus conjunct pluto!!! This is a real reconciliation and time need for peace making, not warring or intensifying negative emotion or storm. and On March 5th, Sun conjunct Jupiter in Pisces, Venus and Mars entering Aquarius and then on March 6th 2:12 am Venus and Mars will conjunct! This is intense time for conflicts or making peace and higher accord, resolution, reconciliation, forgiveness and going on. Important to find lasting solutions good for one and all at this time. Avoiding escalation of negatives important. Avoid going to extremes in what you deem good or bad. On the up side this aspect can be very good for striking up new friendships and agreements. Great for fun and play if not overdone.

Is it Peace making or just more conflict ? Harmony or struggling with divisive opposition? Warring parts demanding attention to non workable solutions? Will World Peace really knock on the door, or authoritative dictates of necessity due to chaos make strong assertive moves to bring peace to the table? Such aspects may bring strong shift to who is ‘in or out’ of our personal life, who is in the true making of community and spiritual connection, who really for a real Aquarian Age of spiritual community, co-creative intelligence and freedom for all out of freedom, love, truth!

“You may say i’m a dreamer, but i’m not the only one.”

           John Lennon, Imagine Song

March 18 Full Moon 27 Virgo and 19th Venus square Uranus. Some tire of the argument and seek escape. For many, a strong urgent passion emerges, or is it Spring Fever. No matter what the ever changing inner and outer stormy windy sunnyweather, there is a sense for the new, the great wild, and a want to be ‘re-wilded’ by creative higher freedom and love means. Avoid criticism that isn’t constructive, true, kind, helpful. Free others to be free one’s self!

March 20th Sun goes into Aries Spring Equinox with Moon going into Scorpio, along with Mercury conjunct Jupiter on Sunday March 21st . Some experience a more private moment of illumination and connection, free giving and opening. For others, a crazy party crash and burn if one doesn’t find right true harmony with surroundings. Here one needs listen to the virtuous creative muse and leading music of the spirit soul world urge. The March 22nd aspect of Mars in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus is critical for mishaps, hastiness, mistakes, sudden accident or need to turn, return, slow it down, and avoid conflict, or speaking/acting without really  thinking of consequences.

Here is a real sense of needing positive change, not change just for itself. Avoid danger, taking high risk, gambling, high velocity or speed, anger and force March 21-22nd. Possible reversals and upsets then too. Good for discovering new ways of progressing and avoiding dead ends or crunching contracting after over expanding too quickly. Sudden reversals in affairs may be at hand. Avoid Anger and over hyped out situations, demands, force. Patience and wisdom taking one’s time is wise here. For some, sudden breakthroughs and creative uprisings, bravado, courage, and great deeds, novel new news and attainment, at hand. Avoid going to extremes to be safe.

Christ’s deeds on earth gave man the capacity to absorb into his Manas (higher mind. -rt) what we designate as Buddhi (deeper awakened heart. -rt).   Rudolf Steiner

April 12 Jupiter conjuncts Neptune in Pisces at 23-24 degrees.  I could talk hours on this. Last time this aspect in Pisces occurred was 1856 when U.S. powers that be were wiping out, exterminating, killing, Buffalo (and Native American ways of life). Such time was full of mediumism, spiritualism, and over materialistic  research deprived of sky and earth breath, balance, harmony. Too many attempts at controlling rather than educating soul for freedom, compassion, loving kindness. That conquering and fighting ill spirit went on into  precipitating the Civil War in the USA; Yuk! At the moment it seems like a psychic civil war, eh? We need the ‘peace maker’ not to be a gun, but a ‘wisdom love, We need to take the profit making out of war and what all humanity needs to survive. Um, what do you think?We need in my mind, a compassion smarts for re-educatng the spiritual soul to inner work, ethics, higher love compasiion, and of the healing arts harmony with nature, staring with purifying healing the water earth air fire elements!

Necessity rather than free will seems to rule. Perhaps not the best, fun,  or wisest thing, but life seems to drag and push us, result us; rather that true cause us, spark us, heal us, make us whole. We really need to be at cause, each of us, for peace making and individual and world peace making and healing. Ok, that was a bit much, hard not to wax poetical in musing for the better. These days, good ain’t good enough. We each and all need to invoke our higher angel and muse!

Jupiter/Neptune, especially in Pisces is also the death and birth of prominent, or even Great Souls. Many Aquarian Age souls are coming in this last and next year. Many souls are going out into the spiritual worlds to help from the other side, and/or to awaken to higher further spiritual work.

Many a spiritual agent, angel, sage or virtue intelligence of the good true beautiful, God for lack of better word, is trying to communicate positive message and energetic to each and all of us on the planet these days. Its a question of attunement and reception of higher calling.

Jupter Neptune is also on downside, associated with mass psychic unconsciousness or feeling overwhelmed. For some a lack of healthy etheric body is overrun by astral or subjective emotional energetics or override. Need to find peace and nature, rest and renewal, inner listening for a greater sense of things. Danger of mass hypnosis, escape, wrong use of drugs, drink, medications. Also crazy good and bad partying, celebrating, mystical experience, space and ocean weirdness and new event. For some the reappearance of right mind and heart in the sun wise etheric may go un-noticed. This can well be a time for the reappearance of ‘the Christ in the Etheric’ as Steiner and Alice Bailey suggested. Surely it is an inspirational magical time on the planet for reconnecting to our highest source and resource within and without.

According to Tim Leary who came to mayflower bookshop a couple times to share; he said that drugs or prayer/meditation don’t work right without the maps to the astral and spiritual worlds, ie. metaphysical and spiritual, art, books and knowledge.

Such Jupiter/Neptune aspect can be good (or ill) for spiritual and mystical intuitive growth, gain, fame, magnetic connection to destiny and others, spiritual correction, higher calling prod or spark, mystical travel, big plans. Often spiritual experience gets misconstrued or wrongly concretized, thus expect a myriad of hopeless (some positive sparks, but..) spiritual and psychic, astral etheric, events; such as UFO and alien sightings, encounters, as well as Virgin Mary and Elvis sightings. Many may suffer apocalyptic fever with no new or true revelation or insight able to better, heal, or grow situations, self and folks round. Some may feel the disappearance, others the re-appearance, of divine and natural order. Many may seek advance or success, money, without having to work or honesty earn such. Thus danger of falling for get rich schemes. A sense of wanting something for nothing, versus creatively manifesting out of ‘nothing’, out of stillness or ‘emptiness’, divine inspirational arisings. Does that make sense? Jupiter Neptune in its 13 year cycle can be pre-teenager angst and rebel me me desires and feelings irrrational or disconnected from time and space, placement and right timing for true appearance and manifestation of virtuous right action, deed (in Pisces its way longer cycle as previously mentioned.) Astrological Aspects always have a higher and lower octave influence according to one’s conscious abilities, karma, dharma, higher or lower self so to speak. There is both freedom and necessity, attraction and repulsion, electric and magnetic influences in planetary aspects. The ideal is the virtues of the planets as exemplified in HPB ‘Voice of the Silence’, and Steiner’s ‘Knowledge of the Higher Worlds’.

Negatively vain hopes and false dreams, speculative or gambling failures, lure of something for nothing. One’s false hopes or schemes dissipate or disappear, or may cause havoc so beware. As Ben Franklin, an all american transcendentalist and common sense politician and astrologer said, ‘Forewarned is forearmed.” Meaning, we can overcome negative tendencies.

   Sheer meaningless escapism, numbing entertainment or crazy obsession vs real edification of soul life, education, garden, home and greater community, family and friends is astrologically here at stake. For many its a time of spiritual soul learning and growth, a time for spiritual purification, illumination, higher connection or union. Time for renewed peace and creativity, freedom and warmth of positive sharing and feeling,  For many may be a more enlightening time, as to both cause and effect, of happenings, thinking, feeling. Positive goals or aims, become more evident, i’d think, at this time.

“The spirit is eternal; the body is subject to life and death in accordance with the laws of the physical world; the soul-life which is subject to destiny mediates between these two (body and spirit) during life on Earth.” -Steiner,  from his book ‘Theosophy’.

April 18thy Mercury and Venus aspect Uranus, while Sun square Pluto makes for quick adjustment to true goals and correction, vs feeling stuck in the mud.

’Tis well. . . Prepare thyself, for thou wilt have to travel on alone. The teacher can but point the way. the Path is one for all, the means to reach the goal must vary with the pilgrims.’

   -HPB, from The Voice of Silence, pg 66.

Remember, 3 to 7 min. a day meditation, stillness mind listening to deeper heart’s stillness of golden nuggets insight, love and truth can miraculously heal the world!

“We must eradicate from the soul
all fear and terror of what
comes towards man
out of the future.
We must acquire serenity
in all feelings and sensations
about the future.

We must look forward
with absolute equanimity
to everything that may come.
And we must think only that
whatever comes is given to us
by a world-directive
full of wisdom.

It is part of what we
must learn in this age,
namely, to live out of pure
trust, without any security
in existence.
Trust in the ever present
help of the spiritual world.

Truly, nothing else will do
if our courage is not to fail us.

And let us seek the awakening
from within ourselves,
every morning
and every evening.”

Rudolf Steiner

“Human perfection consists in the falling away of the lower soul-forces, so that only the higher forces remain behind; in future, man will no longer have the lower forces; he will, for example, no longer have the forces of procreation. John’s (teachings of the WORLD WORD in Gospel of John/Revelations, Lazurus etc) soul-power above all will raise those lower forces to the loving heart. It will send out streams of spiritual love. The heart is the most powerful organ, when Christ lives in man. The lower soul-forces are then raised from the abdominal regions to the heart.”

   ~Rudolf Steiner, ‘The Mystery of Golgotha, Dec.2, 1906 talk (thank you Rudolf Steiner Archive!)

In the case of ordinary people, only insignificant portions of the astral body, the etheric body and the physical body are transformed into Manas, Buddhi and Atma, or into Spirit Self, Life-Spirit and Spirit-Man. Jesus of Nazareth was a Chela of the third degree, and his bodies were therefore in a state of high purification.  ~Rudolf Steiner, dec 2, 1906

Christ’s deeds on earth gave man the capacity to absorb into his Manas what we designate as Buddhi.   -Steiner

“The spirit is eternal; the body is subject to life and death in accordance with the laws of the physical world; the soul-life which is subject to destiny mediates between these two (body and spirit) during life on Earth.” -Steiner, Theosophy

Each of us is One, yet in three parts; one with the Great Breath, all moving in the universe past/present/future. Another part is radical stillness, listening within the heart to the stillness within each and all, within self. And thirdly, each of us is the possible awakening mind between the moving and unmoving, the everything and the no-thing. The awakening Mind between the outer moving and inner stillness listening heart is the Nous, the Universal Mind, the Christ Consciousness, the Christos Hermes, the ‘Yogi Mind’ or ‘Mind Stream Continuum’ as mentioned in my book ‘Astrological Aspects-the Art’.  All is EnSoph, All in One, but the Oneness incarnates and manifests itself in divine destiny in a three fold fashion, in Spirit/Soul/Body, in Thinking/Feeling/Willing, in moving/stillness/awakening mind.           -robert thibodeau

“As one of the greatest reformers, an inveterate enemy of every theological dogmatism, a persecutor of bigotry, a teacher of one of the most sublime codes of ethics, Jesus is one of the grandest and most clearly defined figures on the panorama of human history….the grand figure….will reign supreme and universal only on the day when the whole of humanity recognizes but one father—-the UNKNOWN ONE above—-and one brother, the whole of mankind below.”             -H.P. Blavatsky, Isis Unveiled book II, pg 150.

“Fear and hatred are essentially one and the same. He who fears nothing will never hate, and he who hates nothing will never fear.”        -HPB, Secret Doctrine, III, pg 541

“Christ has given you one prayer of which you have made a lip-prayer and a boast, and which none but the true Occultist understands.”  -HPB, Key to Theosophy, pg. 47

(To HPB, the term ‘Occultist’ means person of inner virtue development, selfless truth and compassion as indicated in both her ‘Key’ and her Voice of the Silence. For further gleanings on her true teachings on real Christianity, see her ‘Esoteric Character of the Gospels’ or her writings on John’s Gospel and the Word. I assume this quote by HPB is direct comment about the ‘Our Father’ prayer. Elsewhere HPB mentions how true and real christians follow the teachings from the Sermon on the Mount. Both Steiner and Manly Hall have similar yet unique statements about the Sermon on the Mount.)

’Tis well. . . Prepare thyself, for thou wilt have to travel on alone. The teacher can but point the way. the Path is one for all, the means to reach the goal must vary with the pilgrims.’

   -HPB, from The Voice of Silence, pg 66.

Finding Peace in the intelligence of the Heart

December 7th, 2021

Friends,

here is another ‘3 minutes to save the world Meditation’ combining ideas of Rudolf Steiner’s with other World Pentecost religions and spiritual sciences of the inner human possibility. For most, there is no God unless we prove it by the way we live. Each individual may tap into the World Spirit, the Anima Mundi, the World Soul for themselves. Most lack stillness and listening heart. Here are a few ideas that may help you reestablish the wisdom compassion art of the Anthroposophical Earth (Heart) evolutions 3 and 4 fold.

blessings to the Steiner Spiritual Arts community of friends,

Astrology for December 2021, the ‘final climax’ and ‘spiritual rebirth of our Consciousness Soul’ and planetary awakening

December 7th, 2021

friends, tune into your ‘Lucky Stars’ and days of ‘Good Vibrations’ here in this talk.

Take care Dec. 24th-25th with rough aspects; last Saturn square Uranus, and Venus retrograde conjunct Pluto (also mid dec and march this venus pluto, more later on that). Good for compassion but not forcing one’s ways on others. Time to alchemically transmute negativity into the most positive vibes. Ahimsa non violence and Karuna loving kindness and compassion, seeing that all wish they were happy and creative, good true beautiful. See Steiner’s ‘Knowledge of the Higher Worlds and its Attainment’ for more on ‘virtue mindfulness’, or even HPB’s Voice of the Silence talks i did on youtube for such. May the ‘wisdom of spiritual thinking’, the ‘wisdom of being Human’ dawn in every heart mind soul, NOW! Amen, Om, All American Freedom and Love to us all!

Astrology for November into December 2021

December 7th, 2021

friends,

much already came true! Yet our Higher Self can transform negativities into positive vibrations and events. Virtue Mind Training is key; See Rudolf Steiner ‘Road to Self Knowledge’ and his ‘Theosophy’ for starts! Or HPB’s ‘Voice of the Silence’, or buddhist ‘Lam Rin’ at Jewel Heart Ann Arbor. By the way, the Steiner Anthroposophical Society is on Geddes Rd in A2. Blessings of heart community of spiritual souls!,
