Jan 2nd Mercury conjunct Jupiter in keep it simple stupid and practical Capricorn. All ahead go with thoughts, projects, works, plans of duration and long lasting consequences. Take care not to brag or promise what you can’t deliver. Practical realism and bottom line works good here. Tendency to take on the3 world and let one’s mind conquer the mountain of ideals. Capricorn wants to be sure its going to work. Merc/Jupiter wants to have a good experience, work or not.

“Torn open by us again and again,
the god is the place that heals.
We’re jagged, because we want to know,
but he is scattered and serene.” ~Rilke

Jan. 3rd ‘hard driving’ willful Mars enters blunt yet diffuse, honest expansive ‘shoot for the stars’ Sagittarius (influences next month and a half). Leaving sneaky spooky secretive Scorpio and going into blunt honest to the point and shooting in the shy Sagittarius may prove a strong shift from emotions to high flying intellect and strong willful actions. Jan.7th triggers mars/nep, expect blurs of fantasy and imaginations of escape, colorful antics. Keep grounded. Around Jan. 28th most critical when mars squares neptune making for miscuing, miss shooting, missed opportunities, accidents and strange illness (flu/cold), need to eat pure food, keeping practical. Sense of lingering ghosts of the past, as well as feeling drained by worries about the future. Bad time to gamble or take risk. Beware of scams, liars, wrong directions. On the other hand, many feel the sky is the limit and wanderlust, entertaining adventures, futurism, science fiction. Ecological and food concerns. Dreamy times and hard to trust news end of January. March/April’s mars aspects hit on Saturn/Pluto making for strong physical down to earth practical actions, needs, and more binding situations. Strong urges to grow and know, expand boundaries and adventures.

“Till finally some astonished onlooker understands
and praises its long endurance. Sayable on by the singer.
Audible only by the god.” ~Rilke

Jan. 4th-5 Earth closest to Sun making for an inner spiritual festival of lights, inner cognition, heart sparks and ignition, inner rebirth of luminousity, big insights. Good time to consult your deepest inner self and highest star as to the future, resolution of the past, and invocation of divine presence. Revelations and spirit sparks of right sense of direction, many of which have been percolating since winter solstice Dec. 21-22, affecting coming year. Inwardly a solar light bath of higher awakening, dreams, intuitions.

“What is that which was, is, and will be, whether there is a Universe or not; whether there be gods or none?” asks the esoteric Senzar Catechism. And the answer made is—SPACE.”
-HPB (SecretDoctrine I, p. 9)

Jan 10 full moon lunar eclipse 20 Cancer, Sun conjunct Mercury. America gets smarter fast. Dangerous times in markets although big moves pulling out of certain investments, or going into new investments of self, time, money. A sense of ending and new beginning is everywhere. Strong shift in likes and dislikes, cultural icons and heroes both rise and fall this year starting now. Such aspect brings quickened awareness of problems and possible solutions. Painful awareness of facts and truths. For still others its blissful insights. Strong urge for change. Urge for greater truths and intents, drive, purpose, meaning. National and international news explosive and shocking, revelational, confrontational, with many a breakdown of situations, as well as many a breakthrough. All the geo-political hot spots and weird political dog fights light up. Dangerous time in international politics and warring. Good time to take good look at ways to curb violence, bring greater peace, educate educate, educate the less fortunate without putting folks in debtor’s prison. Painful awarenesses arise. Need for quick action.
These couple of days around Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, test one’s true self. Patience, wisdom, persistence, compassion, right work and play, very needed. Strong sense of many an ending, shift of gears, and sense of laying strong base (good or bad) for the long term future. Danger of only seeing what’s wrong with everything rather than what we can do about it.
With Lunar Eclipse in Cancer conjunct Marianne Williamson’s Venus near her Sun, (Coming weeks limelight, shift in love life, values, likes, disciplined focus or renunciation) while Saturn is past opposing her Sun (feeling blocked, obstructed, weighed down; maturing into something greater, happiness when alone, yet she is so public! A sense of catching up to herself) ~ we may find her shifting her perspective, her look, her message, focussing more on few strong points, reconsidering and strengthening her base. As Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto head for her late Capricorn Moon, she is not going away but strengthening her message and direction. Having gone through Saturn/Pluto oppose her Sun/Venus, she has been through a huge change in running for President, and may need to keep her health and exercise/diet up. Later in January transit of Jupiter oppose her Uranus, then feb. Jup. opposing her Sun/Venus will boost both her assets and courage for truth.
Perhaps my best song from last year, about marianne williamson. Here :

I am still pondering astrologically the role both Michelle Obama and Oprah will play in the coming Presidential Election. Will Michelle Obama enter the race and run? Win? Astrologically possible!

“The moon points to our past, the sun to the future. We look up to the two luminaries, that of the day and that of the night, and observe the relationship between them, for they send us the same light. Then we look into ourselves and observe all that is woven into our destiny through past experiences undergone as men; in this we see our inner moon-existence. And in all that continually approaches us in the present and determines our destiny, in all that works on from the present into the future we see the sun-element. We see how past and future are weaving together in human destiny.”-
—-R. Steiner, Anthroposophy and the inner life.

Uranus retrograde in early Taurus since mid august now goes Direct from retrograde. Markets challenged, vicissitudes and roller coaster ride emotionally and with some investments of self time money. Big changes in how we think of ‘things’ we need, how we think of investments, money, property, security, sex/love, friends, goods. For many time to quickly act, make decisions, try new directions, take things to higher and deeper level of awareness and participation. Many now wake up as to what to do quickly to make up for lost time or opportunity. Some feel thrown out at the turn. Lots of reversals or upsets. For some breakthroughs rather than breakdowns. A sense of letting go and letting God. Our more virtuous and nobler side, sparks right seeing and action hero to the rescue. Good time to intuit new directions, new thinking, renewed action. Letting go of distractions and activating higher octaves. The inner OM or Holy within one’s self reveals new worlds. Possible shock or event precipitating need for strong reaction. Next 3-4 days, thinks and things can go to extremes; in weather, markets, moods, relations. Keep cool head and warm heart. Sudden quick turn of events. Everything at the moment seems hot and quick. Politics and news alarming and breathtaking.

“Paracelsus named it the sidereal light, taking the term from the Latin. He regarded the starry host (our earth included) as the condensed portions of the astral light which “fell down into generation and matter,” but whose magnetic or spiritual emanations kept constantly a never-ceasing intercommunication between themselves and the parent-fount of all — the astral light. “The stars attract from us to themselves, and we again from them to us,” he says. The body is wood and the life is fire, which comes like the light from the stars and from heaven. “Magic is the philosophy of alchemy,” he says again.* Everything pertaining to the spiritual world must come to us through the stars, and if we are in friendship with them, we may attain the greatest magical effects.”
~HPB, Isis Unveiled 

Jan. 12 Mercury/Saturn/Pluto conjunct in Capricorn. Political and World scary moments here. Attempts in solving most difficult problems. Seeing the problems clearer. Need for more time. Burdensome news. Serious tone of Conservatism, control freaking, authoritative controls, more corporatocracy and plutocratic elite minority ruling but not understanding the majority and the concerns of the world as a collective unity, family of humanithy. Another Aristocratic PreFrench Revolution scenerio? Also time of heavy reckoning, heavy mistakes, mistaken views, blunder, set backs, while elsewhere breakthroughs and big first steps to long term goals. There is always freedom in astrology to tune to the higher octave of planets, avoiding the lower unconscious instinctive chaos or negative manifestations. Mercury here adds intelligence and revelation to powerful land lords of secrets. A wanting to know true ground within one’s self and the world round. Need for new rules, discipline and work ethic, but not so tight and contractive, repressive, restrictive, that it takes away the fun, the free learning, the research and exploration, the search for meaning. A strong sense for need for more security or sureness when it comes to calling, job, career, self worth, family, roots, friends. A renewed sense of trust or mistrust , depending; but for sure deepening, maturing, aspect. Saturn and Pluto denote chronic health, job, relationship, family, home, self image challenges, problems, endeavors. Saturn/Pluto takes a long time coming, long time going. Think 33-39 years ago. Think 1982, think 2002; what were you doing, planning, thinking about all the time. Now such thinks and plans come to conclusion, metamorphic ally change, self correct, redirect, shift to higher or lower level, or die and get reborn. Those with cardinal signs Capricorn, Cancer, Libra, Aries feel it the most. Big decisions and changes coming now and in a year or more for fixed signs taurus, scorpio, leo, aquarius who feel ‘hurry up and be patient, hold still and quick do something’. Mutable signs keep looking for where its most comfortable and tend to not get so stressed out as the other signs (Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius). See my Astrological Predictions Talk on my youtube channel. Google ‘Robert Thiibodeau, Don’t Go, Youtube’ to find my channel easily.
Saturn Pluto aspects call for patience and compassionate wisdom, otherwise really weird strong reactions, danger of further problems. But for sure indicates time of danger or violence, loss of gain, warring contesting, going to extremes in behaviour and weather, hot and cold situations, feeling stuck and over burdened, danger of over doing, over dose, crushing circumstance, and things going bad. Need for discipline and patience, fine arts, music, meditation, simple play. Troubled markets or heavily online with high end controls? None-the-less, tough aspect. Good for scientific research, spiritual science, laying foundation, inner work, laying out strong plans.

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 …. wil reign supreme and universal only on that day when the whole of humanity recognizes but one father — the Unknown One above — and one brother, the whole of mankind below.
~HPB, Isis Unveiled, Volume 2, Page 150

With Jan. 13th Sun conjunct Saturn/Pluto, brings clarity and map to hard work and toil, immediate need for sound response . Need for light of wisdom and clarity for sure. Sound reason in light of difficult situations, right facts, but also ‘near beer’ tales and half truths possibly blurring or obstructing the immediate road ahead. Sacrifice to attain goal. Many obstacles to movement, growth, truth, and love, it seems.
These last few days here may bring event and indications of many an ending, shift of gears, change of players, new beginning, solemn conclusions to a few long winded stories and past year events. The need to move on becomes apparent but some things endlessly and painfully drag on. In many places need for strong police or military action (gosh, sounds like every day these days in the news). Weird fears, sense of being controlled or dominated by something within or without. Feeling unsocial and unpleasant, crushed or blocked. Need for simplifying and purifying ones’ life. Heavy karmic lessons for many. Hard work with little or no reward. Here yoga, meditation, patience, new study, persistence, perseverance, selfless endeavor, compassion and more patience, go far. I cannot recommend enough to regularly and systematically read and study Rudolf Steiner, HP Blavatsky, Manly Hall, Tibetan Buddhism (Gelek Rimpoche), NeoPlatonism, Osho, Krishnamurti, Yoganandya, Franz Bardon, Prokofief, Yoga, Marianne Williamson, Marion Woodman, Von Franz, and more. All at mayflower bookshop if you want to check it out. It can open many a new door of opportunity and grace.

All that is grand and noble in Christian theology comes from Neo-Platonism. -HP Blavatsky 

Venus into Pisces on 13th softens things up and makes for a desire to escape, not think for a moment, urge to love something, anything, somebody, music and subtle mind heart adventures, a search for higher unity and meaningfulness. Love imaginations, travels, trips, dreaming sweet thinks and things, psychic intuitive perceptions enhanced. Yet one needs curb false projections and ill notions incapable of really helping anyone, self included. Creative imagination and fun, music arts versus fantasy and lost in space, mindlessness.

“Ah, the specter of transience,
through the guilelessly receptive
it passes like wisps of smoke.
And we, with our driving, our striving, ~
the abiding Strengths assume
that the gods have some need for us.” ~Rilke

Jan.16th Mercury enters Aquarius squaring Uranus on Jan. 18th. These 3 days mark a time for getting right facts and dealing with things directly and honestly and straightforward. A very tripping time for getting to the point, laying it out straight, and moving on to the future. The reveling rebel creative spirit in look, word, action.

Jan. 20th Sun enters Aquarius giving feeling for truth, freedom, zany expressionism, and solid facts or fantasies one can live with. A want of security and freedom of expression.

“You still knew the place where the lyre
rose resounding~~; the undreamt of center.
….real happiness your friend’s face and stride.” ~Rilke

Jan. 23-24th Sun square Uranus and New Moon. Shake ups, sun sparks, quakes or jolts, sudden quick storms, a quickening of affairs, high romance, sudden meetings or partings, fast moving events next days. Short lived experiences. Lots of new innovative creative happenings in coming weeks. For others, jolts or slaps to wake up, grow up, try new thinks and things.
The Jan. 24th New Moon 4 degrees Aquarius squares Uranus indicating few days into next two weeks really, a need for higher creative release, pursuit,. I am hoping we here and there get peeks of what is to come in december 2020 with the Jupiter/Saturn conjunct in Aquarius. Perhaps a new sense of idealism, a sense of new belonging, group identity, concern for what is good for the whole of society and the world, not just one’s separate self. Collective sense of creativity, freedom, truth, justice, joy. Belief in a God, or a virtue, a friend, heart and soul, a sense of the Spirit of the Times, creative good change, opportunity for growth, happiness, the ideals of the American Way. For some a sense of disturbing realizations and need for remedy, change, reorientation, direction. Early fixed signs affected the most. A need for freedom, but also a need for securing time worthy projects, goals, commitments.

“Silent friend of the many distances,
feel how your every breath enlarges space.
…..if drinking is bitter, become wine.
…..be magic power at your senses crossroads,
…..and if the earthly should forget you,
say to the silent loam: I flow.
To the rushing waters speak: I am.” ~Rilke

Jan. 26th Venus in Pisces square Mars in Sagittarius. Venus and Mars make for the best or worst of lovers, sensuality, super sensuous experience, lots of energy to join or spark, or conflict, depending on other aspects. Fire and water makes for steamy contesting. Fire can burn the watery emotions. The water emotions/feelings can put out the fire; or do thinks and things really getting cooking now. Intensity, polarity, psychic intuitive connections. One can be too much feeling and inwardly oversensitive or fragile, while the other is aggressive fiery outwardly assertive or blunt; both feeling the other doesn’t understand or get it. Good for healthy love/sex polarity or contesting honestly and respectfully; but difficult aspect if projecting and fighting with one sided ego attack and walled up hurt feelings. Jealousy, control freaking, projection, anger, negative emotions is to be avoided at this time. Good for yoga, work out, exercise, music and the arts with aspects tomorrow too.

The efflux from the Divine Being was imparted to the human spirit in unreserved abundance, accomplishing for the soul a union with the divine, and enabling it while in the body to be partaker of the life which is not in the body.
~HPB

Jan. 27 Venus conjunct Neptune. Erotic dreams, imaginations, fantasies, overtures, meetings. High Romance. It can go higher or lower octave, up to you. Oversensitivity, heightened sensuality or artistic sensitivities. Some may run, hide, feel too vulnerable and over sensitive. Good for artistic pursuits. Dreaming spiritual artistic relations. Idealistic romance of knowledge, spirit souls, arts, music. Making the beautiful and surreal. Future planning, travel, dreaming out into things.
Keep your moods, feelings, imaginations in check from negative wanderings. Danger of false or exaggerated imaginations wrecking things, feelings, vibe.

“The anterior idea of the New Platonists was that of a single Supreme Essence. . . All the old philosophies contained the doctrine that , theoi, gods or disposers, angels, demons, and other spiritual agencies, emanated from the Supreme Being. Ammonius accepted the doctrine of the Books of Hermes, that from the Divine All proceeded the Divine Wisdom or Amun; that from Wisdom proceeded the Demiurge or Creator; and from the Creator, the subordinate spiritual beings; the world and its people being the last. The first is contained in the second, the first and second in the third, and so on through the entire series.”
~Alexander Wilder, who helped HPB write Isis Unveiled

Jan. 28th Mars square Neptune. Very active imagination time. Strong wish, projection, need, drive and hunger. Danger of danger, rash crazy chaotic happenings, med/drug wrong doings, water and space problems, weakness, narrow mindedness, need for leaving others free, giving space, avoid explosive situations, out of hand emotions, false projections and wrong actions, aggression, misdirection. Misuse of power, misdirection, overdose, drug craziness, confusion over dose, strange food poisonings and need for pure clean good food, grace before and after! For some feeling drained, tired, vampirized, weak, toxic, feelings of being overwhelmed, lied to, or out of touch with one’s own higher self and true north star, goals. Some in need of retreat, sleep, renewal, simple clean pure diet, more exercise, less fretful worry and lost in space. Take a break from habits ‘killing you’ or side tracking your vital energy, airs, and right thinking. Here what not to do is more important than what to do for long term results; purify, have compassion, patience, heart open listening, be still and know, listen to what the world is telling you, quit fighting projections and ghosts of past/future, have much more compassion for yourself and others. Take art or music lessons, play chess, go, anything helps with concentration and colorful soul life. Mars/Neptune can be the highest minded activities and idealistic futuristic pursuits, but the down side is a blur of unconsiousness, lost at sea or in space, weird fogs, bang ups, wrong use of guns, wrong projections, mishaps.

“The Atman alone warms the inner man; i.e., it enlightens it with the ray of divine life and alone is able to impart to the inner man, or the reincarnating Ego, its immortality. Thus, as we shall find, for the first three and a half Root-Races, up to the middle or turning point, it is the astral shadows of the “progenitors”, the lunar Pitris, which are the formative powers in the Races, and which build and gradually force the evolution of the physical form towards perfection—this, at the cost of a proportionate loss of spirituality. Then, from the turning point, it is the Higher Ego, or incarnating principle, the nous or Mind, which reigns over the animal Ego, and rules it whenever it is not carried down by the latter. In short, Spirituality is on its ascending arc, and the animal or physical impedes it from steadily progressing on the path of its evolution only when the selfishness of the personality has so strongly infected the real inner man with its lethal virus, that the upward attraction has lost all its power on the thinking reasonable man. In sober truth, vice and wickedness are an abnormal, unnatural manifestation, at this period of our human evolution—at least they ought to be so. The fact that mankind was never more selfish and vicious than it is now, civilized nations having succeeded in making of the first an ethical characteristic, of the second an art, is an additional proof of the exceptional nature of the phenomenon.”
~HPB, (SD II, p. 110)

Feb. 9th Full Moon 20 degrees Leo. A sense of strong outer expression, getting things done, forward motions, positive connection, seeing and being seen, shining and being shown, flair for daring adventure, good times, and smiling hearts/faces. Avoid cockiness, egotism, showing off. Strong expressions of individuality.

Feb. 16th Mercury retrograde till March 9th. Mercury at 12 Pisces goes back to 28 Aquarius. Feeling influenced good or bad. Plans without energy for action, or way too much energy and action without good plan. Here is time to cross check your fantasy dreams and imaginations of success and happiness. Are they real, realizable, freeing? A recheck, review, reinstatement, and turn around to try again. How to seek and find true happiness, freedom, creativity, love, is the process at hand. How to find work that renews and commitments that free not imprison and lock one down too much. How to breathe is learned here. Selfless pursuit of truth over psychodrama and amateur merry go rounds.

Feb. 25th Sun conjunct Mercury, Super alert day, events awaken one’s mind to impermanence in outer form and foreverness with inner love/truths. Strong statements, facts, clear intention, getting business done, making connection. Possible events triggering quick action/response.

Feb 20 Jupiter sextile Neptune. Highly idealistic universal love and artistic dreams come true. Danger of scandal due to lack of awareness or unconscious desires, fears. Beautiful weirdly warming weather, elsewhere snowy winter wonderlands of cozy up get warm on the inside. Beautiful aspect for connecting with others heart and soul, spirit and body.

Feb. 21 Mars trine Uranus. Solving problems, arousing strong energy to succeed. Strong forward motion, getting things done, progress. Strong rise in new leadership or stepping up to captain direction.

Feb 27th-28th Venus square Pluto. Avoid negative craziness, jealousy, destructive habits and negative speech, over critical non constructive mind. This is a very deep aspect. Some take things too personally, others make it personal and intimate. Good aspect for forming long term bonds, or separating from such. Fanatics in music, love, art, deep knowing. Avoid crazy stress and tension due to feeling forced into things. Need to make boundaries or state clearly needs, desires, dreams, wants, unwants. Deep feelings here but need to not take things too seriously or personally feeling hurt. Feel heart, compassionate universal heart instead.

March 7-8-9 Sun conjunct Neptune and SuperMoon full moon in virgo 19 degrees. Its a BIG WEEKEND full of lost in space, highly imaginative adventure, lost for some, found and refounded for others. Avoid confusing crazys, liars and just talk. Good for travel, plans, play. music and the arts, platonic spiritual connections, high romance, Grail.

March 23-24 Mars conjunct Pluto, New Moon in Aries 4 degrees. Violence and mad men, or heroes and redeemers, saviors of heart and soul. Good for research, in depth study, finalizing, completing. Avoid taking things too personally. Avoid martyrs. Look for in depth honest workings.

ASTRO DECEMBER Current events and insights~
Comet from outside our system, rare to enter our space, our solar system, will make its closest ride by our Sun, Perihelion, Dec. 8th! In ancient myth reality, such comets come to give us significant messages from the greater Cosmos. The universal mind steps in to make certain things we consider good and/or bad to occur, karmic lessons and further insights, teachings, uplifting experiences or burn out. Comets can be ‘comet cleansers’ purifying and ridding us of forms as they are, highly energizing or awakening higher truths in us individually or collectively. People can rise or fall during eclipses and comet activity. Marc Twain was born on a Comet and predicted accurately his leaving the planet on the comet’s return. This comet coming is from outside our stellar system and could have come from times past in Atlantis! No one knows yet. We feel its closeness now into full moon Dec 12th. Will major transitions (deaths/births) take place. Some arriving, others leaving, risings and fallings. England’s Queen? ‘Prince’ Andrew? President Carter? So many in news on the edge of sharp turns and transitions in life. Almost apocalyptic times we in, eh?
Are our designer futures in trouble?
Yet, the apocalypse ‘now’ has a way of perpetually being postponed, as many little ‘death and rebirth scenarios’ run through our friends, neighbors, news and our own lives. Various storms storm our place in life and rumble through our hearts and minds in hope of new growth and weeding out the old. The next rumble tumble of the dice of karma nemesis and fate is dated to be triggered come December 7-8th on with moon squaring Saturn/Pluto midpoint and Sun square Neptune. Important then to stay grounded, practical, and sane. Possible future stock market quirks, shocks and rattles in days to come, as well as challenges to our ‘taking stock in our self’, outer realities being bot stirred and shaken.
is this a time for ‘The Turn of the Screw’? or the ‘Scrooge’? Feeling screwed? Or is it ‘the three little pigs’ learning to fight off the wolf?.Virgin of the World, ‘Snow White’, the image of the purified soul/astral body regaining wisdom truth!?! Once again the metaphor of the birth of ‘the baby’ jesus, the higher self, Christos or Buddha nature renewed in the womb of the heart. Its is the hermetic old Greek wisdom of the raised consciousness’ or Higher Self reborn at turn of the year. A birthday of 26 Solar Heroes and suns of the virgin. Krishna, Odin, Jesus, Apollo, Hermes, Saturnalia, Mithras, to name a few. Yet this end time of year also feels like a ‘funeral’ dazed with shadowy realities and betrayal of a vision of wholeness, unity, peace. At funerals and such times its impolite to be critical, yet we must learn to see higher truths and love to wend and weave our way in Spirit and Soul, Body. Whew!
*December (into January) is tough month for Bernie Sanders with (Jan) transit of Pluto square his natal Mars, and (Dec) transit of Saturn square his Moon, he may for health and more, drop out, or fall back, from the ‘run’ for President.
*Marianne Williamson, still in the running but not in DNC debates at the moment, has tough aspect mid december of Saturn oppose Venus, indicating possible need to take a breath and step back, switch horses or a few confidants, re-think, not take things personally, taking good care of her more sensitive side. She is soul determined its hard to predict exactly what may happen in her personal life to stir possible laying back from front lines. She may yet continue. For Marianne, December 28th, she will find her place and inner solid space when Saturn transit trines her progressed Sun/Jupiter, strengthening her determined courage to speak the truth, creatively sharing a greater view of what we can do to enliven and heal the collective voice and action the good, true, beautiful in the USA.
Dec. 8th Venus conjoins Saturn foreboding difficult times and weather right into Dec. 13th-14th when Venus is conjunct Pluto. Here the screw’s set loose and Love deepens or weakens! Good time to focus on what’s right to do, avoiding negativities from others. Dangerous time for overdose, suicide, accidents, negative behaviour, sickness. Good for disciplined art of being human, yoga, meditation, healthier life style. Need for ethics and morality in high and low places. Time for compassion with teeth, wisdom smarts, capacity to really help, take action to better. Is it a time for gothic tortuous fiction and ghost hauntings of history repeated in the ‘fall’? Perhaps a renewed inquiry into secrets behind the ‘invisible hand’ manipulating the puppets and temporary fall of the curtain or facade of the ‘little man’ of external rank and fortune without inner vision and wisdom?
Saturn is cold and contractive, hard mean lean; and Pluto is associated with death, degeneration or regeneration, extremism and taking things too personally. SuperSensitive or not sensitive at all. Thinks and things go to extremes. At higher octave level its a big sense of common collective destiny. A larger sense of spiritual reality, fate, reality check, and/or world conception, wisdom, compassion. Big view often needed here as well as strong sense of common sense, long term practicality. Its all possible foreplay and preview of January’s Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. Its the opening act.
[Aspects influence days before and after, when directly hitting on the planets in your own natal chart, major events can take place. It is out of our own genius, wisdom, smarts, to aim for the higher octave of planetary influences and impelling energetic.]
More December ASTRO ASPECTS ~ (see below for more days before and in-between these.)
Dec. 11th Venus/Saturn. Venus is love and with Saturn its denial or overly strong focus, perhaps deep connection or feeling stuck imprisoned. It is deep connection and wisdom love arising through time.
Why don’t Billionaires love all the land?
And why can’t money buy long lasting happiness? Does happiness buy money? How does true love transcend anger, hatred, jealousy, negative emotions, and selfish separatist, this shore only view.
With Venus conjunct Pluto (dec.13) its a sticky wicky witchy feeling stuck deep and driven hard down to the bone in hard facts and tougher realities. The limits of growth and need for contraction configures into everyday reality. December may be a hard riddle to solve. It is for some, a house of false mirrors, unreal light and direction. For others hard realities and wake up calls. Need for higher truths and love to emerge from self, other or not. Time to pick one’s self up and join others in good works focusing what’s good for one and all. Its a deep need for renewal, humility and/or selfless learning, compassion, avoiding obsession, fixation, inflated sense of self importance or ‘woundology psychology’; victimization stigma. This is done by invoking one’s Christ Self, Divine Self, the God within, the Higher octave of one’s heart and mind. Times alchemically transformative for some. Possible life transformative experience/love, higher predilection, spiritual calling recognition, a raising from dead thinking/feeling. From higher karmic/dharma sense of ‘thinks and things’, our more universal ‘higher self’ precipitates events, brings everything upon us for learning lessons and enlightenment process. To see and experience this takes inner work on SELF. Eventual freedom and higher love/compassion/creativity/joy will emerge.
Astrology always has a higher and lower octave at work in each and every aspect and time.
At higher end its divine intervention and angelic inspiration, good luck and destiny. At the lower end its fate and necessity, feeling ripped off and/or vampirized, drained, things ‘eat at you’. From the lower end, things look more tragic, desperate, and ill willed for the soul. Thus Shakespeare wrote comedies and tragedies, a glimpse of higher and lower seemingly un-repressible realities, an inner battle for the soul, a struggle of light and dark, conscious and unconsciousness.
All initiation myths have this sense of leaving the known, going into the wilds of the unknown, discovery and loss, rediscovery and finding of gold, inner direction and virtue, a sense of ending and new beginning, death and rebirth, communion with higher values, love, joy, truth, and futurity. See Steiner’s From Death to Rebirth, and his Fall of the Spirits of Darkness.
Human beings individually and collectively will eventually transcend good and evil, and like the chess pieces that move above the dualistic black and white squares, higher consciousness will allow us to act in a more transcendental way with each other. Each action becomes aware of all the other pieces and actors in the world game process reality on the road to Self Realization and true Knowledge.
Also during this time period of Dec. 11th to 19th, transiting Saturn will oppose the Moon in the United Kingdom (England) Chart. This will make for strong debate, argument, contesting, consolidation, attempt to go right wing conservative, nationalistic. Also makes for severe weather or circumstances. Possible very cold weather and cold shoulders. Extremes in weather pendulum like, some places in world on fire, others freeze. Food prices up, quality down. Some land no good no more. May take till dec. 2020 when jupiter/saturn trines UK Uranus/Ascendent for peace and love, social justice and mutual collective consensus to re-emerge, in heart solidifying then England’s better future, economy and honest estate. If the few didn’t own so much, others could have a shot at home and land. One wonders with december’s aspects about health and well being of the upper crust as well. Rich outside often is poor or sick inside it seems. May be big turning point and interesting conclusion of a cycle for the UK. For USA its December 2020 when reality of peace and harmony, intelligence and loving kindness return us from this weird psychic polarizing civil war like division.
December 8th to 14th may show many an event and world or social cultural turn of events, change. Presidents present and pass under heavy stress tests, ‘do or die’ sort a speak, or hide and seek, or something. World Stock Markets stressed.
Robots and Artificial Intelligence taking half the job market in coming years. China/Russia/middle east/USA in continuous hot cold war with divisive tactics to take advantage of each other rather than to enhance each others quality of life. A sense of separateness and divison rather than communication and working together is prevalent. Lots of paranoia and mistrust pervasive. Fear kills love. Love vanishes fear but must be wise for spiritual future, not just materialistic. Spiritual and material values begin to purify and harmonize co-creatively with each other end of 2020.
With Saturn/Pluto opposing Cancer Sign for past years and couple years to come, problems with purity and quality of food, water, air. Family and friends need mending not fencing, honest communications not fabrications and nefarious exploitations. Pluto square to Libra and Aries has challenged our ideas of marriage, relationships to include all, individuality to not trespass on other individuals. Pluto demands a sense of belonging to greater whole while trying to protect uniqueness of each and every person and thing. Negatively it destroys things making a wasteland of land and relationships. We must learn to invoke and evoke the higher virtue in each moment and time.
Venus is love, art, culture, friends and loved ones. With saturn and pluto venus must be private and secret, to the point and protective of one’s sacred Stillness, holy space. cleanliness and virtue here go far to protect and stay open for the best.
Dec. 8th to 14th not best time to purchase gifts unless out of creative artistic imagination or out of intuitive understanding of long run future. Gifts should be way out spiritual or dirt practical to harmonize creatively with the times. I suggest checking out manly hall’s ‘Secret Teachings of AllAges’ at mayflower bookshop. Or Osho’s ZEN TAROT, good for doing intuitive readings with positive results!
Dec. 8-14 or more is wrong time to gamble or take risk in money or love, unless creative free and/or many lives to prove. With so many castings and roles to play, always be aware of the ‘mask’ people wear, and to what future is fed, and who behind mask, trickster or fool, wise one or holy space, will, heart.
Certainly this time challenging, possibly inwardly rewarding and warming at least. Recent,now, and till Jupiter/Uranus trines (around dec. 15th). Then new emerging of truth/love/clarity/ till then quite challenging. During now till them, lots of crazy interesting news and dark revelations, challenges ~ such as Stock Market and investments roller coasting.
Impeachment zaniness cross fires, cannabis blues and highs, cannabliss inscapes vs poor results. Tensions round Brexit, nation state disagreements/wranglings, health and well being of self and our collective natural resources and common wealth, 5G phone health risks, weird tortuous scientific breakthroughs but toxic fallout or shadow play. Dangerous unlimited or wasteful military industrial growth seems unavoidable and unaccountable around the world. No Peace Dept. nor wisdom enough for true lasting peace making. Seems the world caught in big short term profits at cost of long term prosperity and health. Our future is at stake.
Need a new wisdom, an aquarian spirit smart enough for lasting peace plans manifesting everywhere one looks!
During this december time more nasty nasties with Epstein murder and aftermath, more big name scandals, Prince Andrews underwear revelations, more Weinstein dirt and funny weird connections, more pedophile priests and decadent funsters and cosmos monster inflated entertainment personalities distracting us from the reality right in front of us and in failing polluted nature around us. More ‘Idiot Wind’ as Dylan called it. More violence and power over rather than through. More violence and gun gangster gunster’s misuse and false power plays. More power and energy troubles, weather and emotional storms, sudden downpours, snow, or release of dirty secrets and repressed emotions. Wild Spirits in need of wisdom intelligence. In all areas of life there is too many sharks in the water, and a lack of responsibility for our common wealth, that which we all need to survive and thrive on this planet! And then there is the Solar Eclipse on Christmas day. Many an awakening to come. Can be holy, can be ahrimanic.
December transit of Pluto oppose USA par fortune and transit of Jupiter oppose Venus/Jupiter makes for many shifts in buyers likes and dislikes, many sales or lack of, for some. Things go to extremes ‘good’ or ‘bad’, beautiful or ugly. Deep new discoveries, but shadow toxins, weird storms and lightening quick experiences with long lasting effects good or ill. Also strange electronic mishaps, and over play, over doing, over spending, and for some going broke. Things are going to weird extremes before true change arrives. Challenges continue in both up and down for emotions and markets. It would help so much if happiness wasn’t dependent on external thinks alone!
Approaching mid december, intense rallies, collective voice or protest, for and against. Unusual rhythms, breaks and breakthroughs, or break downs. Quirky turn arounds, reversals or upsets. With transit of Neptune square USA Mar/Neptune and midpoint, its been hard to figure out divine inspiration from out and out lies and deceit. High ideals and possibilities for some, for others lost in space or deception, conspiracies impotent for virtuous deed,good work, self realization, mutual agreement. Look for actions to speak and manifest ideals. One’s daily life to become ideal.
The Solar Eclipse on Christmas day with moon eclipsing Pluto and Venus 26-27th following, will prove to be both apocalyptic in hindsight and foresight; as well as giving us a sense that more than a few pages of history are getting turned at this time. A need to discover a way of loving that will never let you down. Here its more what you give, shine, share, be; than what others do.
Need more good news?!? Well, number one; if you are reading this, you are still in the game Watson! Be still and know. Also Jupiter will conjoin Saturn in Aquarius come December 2020. Then we will get a good taste of the Aquarian ideal of universal love, truth, collectively creative mutual understanding and belonging soul wise, grounded in peaceful intelligence and wisdom of the world rather than ‘Wiiz Dumb’.

December Critical Astrological Days (influences felt before and after exact days of aspect)

Dec 2nd Jupiter enters Capricorn for a year and earth signs get a break and new renewed breath of positive change coming. Shift from many a trouble and struggle to enable greater play and good work, luck, money, romance. Look for what house and planets you have in earth signs. Fire signs worked into actuality last year their ideals and dreams, some profiting while others reviewing missed learning lessons. Cardinal and earth signs, houses and planets activated for new growth. Mutable and water signs dreamy artistic, living in past and future, missing parts of present, be here now.
Dec. 11 Venus conjunct Saturn. Love what gives you wisdom and lasting virtue mind/heart.
December 12th full Moon in Gemini followed by Dec. 13th friday, Mars trine Neptune and Venus conjunct Pluto. Some miss the turn, others divinely inspired to take new leaps, adventure.
Also dec. 13 time period ~ Venus conjunct Pluto with the Mars trine Neptune. Some escape stress and troubles, others in the thick of it. Avoid being obsessed with externals, work on self, share self with others. Avoid expecting others to do what you want. Celebrate good things, times, people, but don’t possess the moment. Kiss the joy as it flies by, don’t kill the time, kill the TV and distractive thinking. Share and dare, don’t mare and flair or crazy care. Dare to let go and flow, no attachment to results, just be your best. Trust your future Spirit Soul in the becoming.
December 15th Jupiter trine Uranus in earth signs. Down to earth fun, practical and touchy. Yes, somebody is always winning. Are we happy for others, working on self to be clear, real, authentic, genuine but not clutching, clinging, attached, externally fixated. Accept things the way they are for now, keep working on self. Be thank full for still learning. Jupiter/Uranus is surprise shock for some, others fun surprises and originality, humor, fun, creativity, music/arts.
For some a leap of freedom and intellectual love of life, sociability, big breaks, most lucky for a moment inwardly or outwardly. Avoid risk and gamble, yet mildly good wild times. For some advancement and gain without much effort. Sense of luck and money. Some go overboard and lose their shirt.
Dec. 21 Sun in Capricorn, longest night, shortest day, serious long term and inner commitment. A time to make a wish for new year to come. Time to attune to one’s deep inner oneness, wholeness, quiet rooted self.
Dec. 22 Venus square Uranus. Sudden realizations, surprises, joys; or sudden little mishaps or obstructions, miscommunications, missing pieces. Good for creativity and spontaneous behavior.

December 26th Solar Eclipse at 4 degrees Capricorn with Sun conjunct Jupiter on 27th giving way to popularist values and pep rallies in hope things are going to get better. Good time to network, extend your grace and good will out to the world. Good for meeting others these coming weeks and making positive plans for present into future. A strong desire to ditch trouble and look for more fun times. For some strong turning point in time. Sense of being cut off, or suddenly connected. Deep sensitivity to one’s whole of life. Avoid little things bugging you, troubling you, not to see all the good in world.

“Together we can save this country.” ~Marianne Williamson

Dec 27th Sun conjunct Jupiter after moon conjunct Saturn/Pluto. Expansive time for good or ill.
Dec 28th moon occults venus. Look deeper into self and other for what matters most to heart and soul.
Dec 30 mercury trine uranus. Look for sparks of genius to light the way. Sudden connections, insights, spurts of growth, creativity, soul touch.
Jan 10 full moon lunar eclipse 20 Cancer, Sun conjunct Mercury, Uranus goes Direct from retrograde. A sense of letting go and letting God, our nobler side, to intuit direction. Letting go of distractions and activating higher OM or Holy within one’s self and world.

**************************************************************
The ASTROLOGY OF THE TIMES ~
Oct 31st Halloween has Moon conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius, but also Mercury goes retrograde at the end of Scorpio until November 20th., trine Neptune along the way. Good for indoor parties and catching up on biographies and stories. Many want to dream out, space out, let go of tough reality. Possible severe weather and winter coming, but now frolic night before all saints, all virtues day.
NOVEMBER in coming weeks mercury retrograde reeks havoc, many plans (impeachment) get complicated and confusing and mistakes mistakes made. Many dream on or fall back. Perhaps many too high? Meds not working right? False imagination? Desires and fears having trouble with reality and hard cold facts? Good time to prepare oneself for better futures to come, or a need to step back from some situation your are not ready for, or not well thought out enough with details. With Mercury retrograde its best not to make heavy important agreements (contracts etc). You or they may not follow through later on. Avoid major decisions. On the other hand, astrology works in opposites and higher and lower octaves of event possibility depending on the individual~ how smart, how good the karma, capacity, talent. So Mercury retrograde can be a time to really get to know what you want, desire, and aim for, Good time to overcome fear with greater love and truth. Good time to dream real and plan good futures. Good time to fall back and fix a few things, making right on some mistakes not flight to further mistakes and hard learning. Some feel trapped or stuck and fume or boil over; but working on new learning always helpful for new views, greater perspective. Avoiding hiding under the mask or being fooled by someone who is. Good time to find right direction for higher love calling vocation work play. November 11th Mercury transits the face of the Sun making for many getting clear quick on the facts, others shocked by the facts, some feel burned by the facts, and some cut right through right to the point to score big, accomplish the deed, or perfect the work.

WATCH OUT FOR SCARY STOCK MARKETS NOV. 24TH-29TH!
Could be roller coaster of vicissitudes and fear,
perhaps heavy down turn, drop. Avoid Risk or gamble or use of force.
Or is it just really tough political weather in the White House!?!
With mars/uranus in sky thinks and things can reverse quickly from what you thought was occurring. Stormy weather inwardly and out. Turbulent moments. Around Dec. 10th-11th nutty disturbing time too.

Michelle Obama has great aspects in her chart to run for President. She could win from the astrological point of view, but so could Oprah! Late December into January she may well jump in! Or are her good aspects other successful adventures.

Unless someone else jumps into political race, Elizabeth Warren still looks the best bet to win astrologically. President Trump’s chart rough at election time indicating tough time then. More on this next talk.

November 2nd Moon occulting Saturn/Pluto subtly triggers impending troubles, problems, hurts needing solutions and healing.
Nov. 5th Mars square Pluto is a sad affair, some sorry they didn’t dare a higher highway truth and love. Such aspect usually brings out the upset, anger, hate, gun play, violence, threats and counter threats. Such aspect spiritually is meant to fight of truth, goodness, justice, repair everywhere. Deep compassion and passion for truth and love needs banish fear, hate, crookedness. Avoid harmful speech, negative emotions, fixation on a point, selfishly not allowing others their free speech. Avoid unneeded criticism or harmful words, actions. Good for cleaning and ridding self of burdensome, going nowhere matter. Here negativity is its own reward, and honey catches the honey bee and flower.
Nov.. 8th Sun sextile Saturn, Sun tine Neptune, Such aspect works to bring a more peace and harmony to warring sides. An attempt at compromise and agreement is at work everywhere. The ideal and workable compromise is struck for many. Peace and Love have a day or two here, perhaps a month.
*Nov. 11th Transit of Mercury Retrograde across the face of the sun. Things go backwards, need redoing, recalibrating, rethinking, renewing, rewriting, reviewing, rewinding, and more rethinking. One needs check and recheck the little details and perhaps avoid big decision making. Mercury retrograde from Oct. 31st to November 27th, but November 11th combust Sun a time of increased tension and facts necessitating action or reaction. Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, Aquarius get hardest hit by this Mercury retrograde time. Desire and fear tend to sidetrack one’s bigger picture and higher self. Weird power plays and taking things too seriously a problem.Electromagnetic tensions run high, so get good exercise and workout, sauna or yoga or massage; eat more healthy. Good for research and discovery for some.
Is this a time when danger of unconscious or egotistic actions wreck the day. The pimple detracts from the whole, the little things bug and annoy and can trigger strong reaction. Negative thought/feeling/action wrecks what could have been sweet day? The gold orb’d day sours?
A day when the speck of separatism, ‘egotism’ acting out of separateness rather than One World View, is divisive and disturbing in effect? Or is it a time when one’s astral body or animal appetite gets burned or over cooked, over indulged, biligerantly verbose or over done, over flowing indulgent and ill willed, sick? Or is it a time one is purified and brought closer to the light/ love/truth/compassion, right workings and creative sunny play, realization and enlightenment? Many a reavealing fact or ruth may suddenly or shockingly appear around this time (two weeks either side).
More on Nov. 11th Mercury crossing face of the Sun~~~~
Mercury/Sun is sextile Saturn/Pluto and oppose by Moon giving a very serious mood and serious play for heavy bottom lines, accusations, attack and defense. The Mercury combust Sun makes many feel burned or ripped off, or needing to rid self of burdens and ‘what’s burning or burdening’ them.
Four planets desposit to Saturn, 5 to Jupiter, one to Neptune. Popular vote, democratic urge, is toward change in regime, but when did popular vote win recently?! Plutocratic Corporatocracy on the defense and offense. Another French Revolution collectivism at hand? A kind of psychic or emotional ‘civil war’ in ways? A minority equally strong in event and outcome as collective mass vote? Indecisive unsure actions. Still business as usual? Need for better ground rules and clear future outcomes? Neptune is indecisive or confused or escapees from such decision making. With Saturn/Pluto in first house of mercury transit, authoritative forceful hand at play. With Venus/Jupiter in 12th, many feel oversensitive and misunderstood. It seems a stand off between liberal and conservative bent as well as spiritual vs materialistic world view. Moon/Uranus opposing Sun/Mercury/Mars indicates high emotions, being at odds with others, split decisions and oppressive tensions, upsetting news, argument, disagreement, popular collective reaction to events seemingly hostile. Selfish, plutocratic, or forceful means to control. Persistent riots and complaints in many places. Upsets. Mars within square of Pluto portends of strong hostility or mean cruel behaviour necessitating police or well thought out action/reaction. China/Hong Kong rough time for free choice. Many protests in world go unheard in media. Good for breakthroughs in research, revelation, intimacy. Touchy situations though taking extra caution and wisdom compassion to maneuver through.
November 12th Full Moon in sensuous and honestly practical down to earth sign of Taurus. Happy week to come making things work for self and other.
Nov 14th Venus square Neptune is silly idealistic or otherworldly, Beware of false dreams or signs and dreams misinterpreted. Good for poetics, lovers, artists, musicians, heavenly bodies and spiritual wanderings, journeys. For some wild fantasy and love come true for a spell. For others at the lower octave, reality and truth bump fantasy and illusion to wake up and smell the coffee of truth both freeing and holding us to go on. Believe in what you can touch now, not forever awaiting tomorrow. Venus here wants to know for sure, not sleep and dream forever.

Nov 20th mercury goes direct. Many get a wake up call that now is the time to be real. Much insight into past pushes us positively into future. coming months full of forward moving actions. Avoid impotent criticism which not only doesn’t help other, but side tracks oneself into deadened avenues of thought, word, deed. Positive time to work on oneself to renew negotiations with others. Compromise and solutions arise to persistent past problems.

Nov. 22nd Sun enters Sagittarius. Wings of inspirational wisdom includes us all arises in hearts and minds for a month. A sense of seeing wholeness, but pay attention to the details!
Nov. 24th Venus conjunct Jupiter, and Mars oppose Uranus.
Fluctuations and sudden shifts in Stock Markets?! Good aspect for fun and love, adventure, but take care to avoid overdoing or accident. Avoid risk or gamble. Dare devils meet angels? Angels blink and wrong turn ensues. Doing what one loves may create unwanted reactions. Negative critique on others may backfire. Every encounter must be out of freedom. Collective consensus to contest lies, insults, contraband, and selfish intentions.

Nov 25th Venus enters capricorn brings a pracitcal serious note or deeper need, security, predictability to love and money matters. A wish for deeper or longer lasting values, relationships. Long term values and wisdom now gleam and shine. Practical matters at hand supersede far away plans and promises, imaginations and fantasies. Next weeks reveal what really matters bottom line.
November 25th to 29th particularly crazy with Stock Markets, weather, politics. So is December 10th to 16th! More on this at my talk. Avoid risk.
Nov 26th New Moon in Sage Sagittarius is a call for seeing further than one’s own nose, seeing what challenges all of us. A sense of collective striving. Many plans and seeds planted, few the real oak trees arise. Don’t be fooled by far away promises. If feeling stuck, now may be the time to fly or take first real steps to learning anew what freedom and love may mean inside out.

Nov 28th Thanksgiving Mercury trine Neptune, Venus trine Uranus, Moon conjunct Jupiter and Venus. Lots of love going around. Try to join in and pile it on, the love and attention, the bravado and creative urge to awaken, unite, share, and care for each other’s inner striving and aspirations.

Nov. 29th Moon occult saturn/pluto Hangover or hard realty wake up call. Very serious day concerning lots of serious heavy matters. Good for keeping an eye on the long term, or is it need for freedom from restriction?

Dec 2nd Jupiter enters Capricorn for a year and earth signs get a break and new renewed breath of positive change coming. Shift from many a trouble and struggle to enable greater play and good work, luck, money, romance. Look for what house and planets you have in earth signs. Fire signs work into actuality last years ideals and dreams, some profiting while others reviewing missed learning lessons.
December 12th full Moon in Gemini followed by Dec. 13th friday, Mars trine Neptune and Venus conjunct Pluto
December 15th Jupiter rine Uranus in earth signs. Yea, somebody is winning and we are enjoying it!!? Hope soul.

December 26th Solar Eclipse at 4 degrees Capricorn with Sun conjunct Jupiter on 27th giving way to popularist values and pep rallies that things are going to get better. Good time to network, extend your grace and good will out to the world. Good for meeting others these coming weeks and making positive plans for present into future. A strong desire to ditch trouble and look for more fun times.

The Dreaded possible really tough winter and more coming with Saturn/Pluto conjunction in January.

More on that coming and at talk.

Astrology as a crisis opportunity for growth, peace, creativity, and social participation.

“Freedom is the sense of being capable of actions motivated solely by love.” ~misquote of Rudolf Steiner, 1894, The Philosophy of Freedom

There is no lasting freedom without truth. No lasting love without true understanding of freedom in Spirit and Soul! A World Conception of a common humanity as one family, all friends, is needed. The experience of thinking, feeling, doing in its proper transformation by virtue and honest common sense is called for. A modesty and pureness of heart and mind to transform the anger, pride, ill will, honor, false humility and over sensitivity selfishly indulging in the animal ignorance delusion is far from home at the moment. Where the wisdom removes pity revenge, false piety? Where the higher angel, the gratitude, loyalty, duty and love? Immanent and Transcendent, the highest love and most earthy common sense is called for now. We need work together to find solutions to the world’s challenges.
The ethical individualist activates and actualizes the principles of freedom, ethics, and pure conceptual thinking. In spiritual thinking heart is there renewed hope for a raising of consciousness needed in these challenging times. A temporal retreat from incessant worldly noise and motion may be necessary good start to research pure heart thought engendering a will towards the good, true, beautiful. Theory (sense free thinking and virtue mind training) and Practice, putting ideas ideals to work is in that order.

“The happiness of the individual
is inseparably connected
with the happiness of all.”
~Rudolf Steiner, Apocalypse lectures chapter 10

“We are continually overflowing toward those who preceded us, toward our origin, and toward those who seemingly come after us. … It is our task to imprint this temporary, perishable earth into ourselves so deeply, so painfully and passionately, that its essence can rise again “invisibly,” inside us. We are the bees of the invisible. We wildly collect the honey of the visible, to store it in the great golden hive of the invisible.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke

AstroNews for Oct-November-Dec

October 1st Venus in libra square Pluto in capricorn. First half of month has mostly challenging aspects. Some feel in over their head, others feel overwhelmed. Where there is Love, there is God; as Tolstoy and the Bible say. Where there is emptiness practice, stillness heart listening, there is room to move, grow, know more, participate, be part of it all. Acting out of separateness without true understanding of karma and re-incarnating learning circumstance; life is tough to say the least. Negative emotions and selfishness is killing the world. Ownership without enlightenment is killing the world.

Negative emotions is a mindless battleground. Jealousy is loving someone for who you want them to be rather than who they are. Avoid negative emotions and projections,  manipulations through guilt, shame, blame, anger. Guilt is what we pay ourselves to do it again. There is no real shame or blame, guilt, other than not living up to one’s highest ideal, virtue, holy dream, inspiration, intuition; one’s sense of ONENESS, universal connection, Eros. Venus/Pluto wants to deepen love but needs to act out of freedom, love, compassion, higher truth.

   Such pluto aspects makes some feel squeezed and pinched, compelled to behavior rather than inspired to make holy, peaceful, more enlightened, awake.

    Lots of mud throwing in news. Judgement without healing and upliftment of all involved is lame, short sighted, and often inhumane. Dirt’ on others we see often our next life circumstance if not properly dealt with.

    Secrets smothered and hid now revealed? Or shamefully hid better? Good time to selflessly take a look at what works for the best of all, the most for the many. Need for healing and working more together rather than rogue. Yet individuals oft lead the change for better or worse.

     Venus in last of cycle third quarter coming to join Pluto indicates a wanting to go home, back to the heart and soul, back to renewal of original primal instincts driving one onward, upward, and forward with a sense of passion, love, creative art. The art of being truly human is at stake, learning to breathe to the heart is critical for one’s sanity and health.

     Animal appetites and mechanistic behaviour, fear and anger, attachment or ‘cling ons’ are tripping many. Selfless love, compassion, learning, feeling, making all friend and hugging hearts and earth is big plus these days of daze and explosive situations. Pluto tends to get wrapped up in sticky fights needing to flow to find light. Ultimatums and dirty play, sneaky behind the scenes undermining of others (self in long run) are at hand first half of month.

      Positive approach is to purify, renew, selflessly seek truth, and act, with universal love, truth, and personal touch.

October 3rd Pluto goes direct from retrograde. Since last April when it went retrograde, plans made end of 2018 into Spring, have taken a back step, but now about to go forward for positive change and self renewal, deepening, connection. It may take a few weeks of finding right steps and right other workings. Such aspect reveals need for big outer and inner change, moves, rearranging, rethink, and radical meditation/yoga so to open opportunity, miracle, surprise and wonder, making future more viable and friendly. 

    Finding right commitment to self realization and world learning is key. This powerful inner awakening energetic runs into Oct. 14th Sun square Pluto and may then tell more of the story heading as we approach january 2020 saturn/pluto conjunct. (a 31 to 37 yr cycle indicating midlife crisis, crux ifiction or crucifixion resurrection, journey to the under world, or unconsciousnes and back. The descent of the soul and its turning point in time as Rudolf Steiner likes to say, is a question in our hearts of timing, awareness, higher love. its a question of who’s got it right enough to ‘stay in forward’ and not have to keep slipping backwards into same old same old, reliving old movies and mistakes, one’s own and others. Its a quest and question of radical stillness and listening heart, YogaMind i call it in my book. Repeat offenders can be a problem, working on oneself and letting others go for a moment may be a good part of the resolution and solution to well being and spiritually becoming.

Oct. 6th Moon occults (conjuncts) Pluto, another progressive or digressive step, regeneration and making whole, or degenerating, deactivating, ill at ease,  (activating oct 3rd and 14th). Try not to take anything personally and over react inwardly or outwardly. No shame or blame, just learning; as Marianne Williamson use to tell me.

     Take it personal to invoke your own higher self, your own intuition of ‘God’, virtue, Higher Self, Buddha Mind, Christ Consciousness, call it what you will, but call it into your personal life!

    Pluto aspects good for clearing space for the new to enter, or for renewing the good true beautiful in self and others. Good for cleaning, fixing up, home work, renewing. Otherwise pluto can be degenerative with slow breakdown and sense of inevitability. Pluto demands selfless honestly and pure heartedness, otherwise secret selfishness limits the great possibility of infinite good. Mantra and Prayer good for centering and breathing into source, center, I AM, or Christ Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness. Prayer is talking to God, Meditation is listening to God; God is Love, not an ‘ego’ projection.

Oct. 7th Mercury oppose Uranus & Sun square Saturn makes for a serious day weighing the consequences of one’s actions, or lack of free will and compassionate for everyone actions. Often such aspect first half of October make for world events pushing many into immediate action or response. Extremes in the weather and emotions have some places and spaces too hot to handle, or too cold to warm up with enough love. Truth sets you free, love commits you to deeper passage and passion. Follow your highest ideal, work to make manifest; live the life to share the teachings.

October 8-9th Mars oppose Chiron in Aries. Tendency to act out of woundedness and estrangement rather than higher self calling. Or is it a passage, a doorway, a time to move through something rather than get stopped by something. In my book i see Chiron more like Chiron the boatsman in old Greek Myth reality, the one who carries you in and out of the underworld or worldly affairs. Its Hermes and Athena who connect heaven and earth, higher and lower self. Hermes is ArcAngel Michael to Steiner, Artemis/Athena is divinizing Sophia Wisdom. (See the Mission of Michael, and Isis, Mary, Sophia by Steiner at Mayflower)

     Opportunities to rise to the higher calling, rise to the occasion with great nobility of spirit and virtue soul is at hand. Avoid letting others trigger your fears and needy littleness, be big, put wings on your heart, Breathe! Wish and Bless! Feelings of crossing the river styx attempting to get to more light, higher ground, greater insight, and feelings of unity prevail midst the stormy times. Sound intelligence over unruly emotions rule. Passion for Truth, higher Truth, is king here (or at least worthy knight, Parzival).

.

Oct. 12 Venus in Libra oppose Uranus in Aries. What’s good for everybody concerned, a greater social cultural collective, family and friends may be strongly contested by either a whacky materialistic genius or egoist. None-the-less, creative free loving people are at odds with each other. too. Hasty rash forceful actions may backfire. Seek a love more inclusive of others, truth, freedom, creative social abilities and arts. Avoid rash action leaving others out of the decision making. This wildly creative or opposing energetic runs into Oct. 14th when Sun conjuncts Pluto and Moon conjuncts Uranus. This aspect good for free play, arts, making amends, or starting new healthy trends!

Oct. 13 Full Moon in Aries on the heels of yesterday’s Venus/Uranus urges one to make something new happen, rise to the next higher level, initiate change, be done with what doesn’t work for one’s higher self, for world at hand nor future.

     A sense of get over it already, or sense of wanting to quicken what nature is taking too long to do. Be patient and think long term, but make changes positive to oneself and one’s environment if you can. Highly creative and free loving time. Yet its important to know this ~ its fall and we are heading toward the BIG SATURN conjunct PLUTO this coming January 2020! Early warnings end of Sept into first half Oct. Will January be the finality, the final act of much of the psycho drama and pollution the world is in. Tough time for good food, clean air and water. It all starts with each and every one of us. The real change begins here in the heart and mind and what at hand.

     Outward fall into winter, but inwardly its the opposite (see Steiner’s ‘Four Seasons and the ArchAngels’, as well as his ‘Cycle of the Year’. So now, feel spring inside blooming your heart and soul. Outwardly fall, inwardly a rise of awareness, consciousness. Outwardly be patient as Buddha’s Mother awaiting birth of Buddha, of Higher Consciousness, real freedom and truth inside out. Be the patient compassion mother for lost wounded souls. Be patient with your own fears and desires, see through it. Avoid knee jerk reactions and hasty ill thought out actions. Full Moons push everyone to the limit and stir up things, strongly shift gears up or down. .

    If one is too outgoing then perhaps an ‘in-turning’ needed in days to come. If too inward, outer pulls and longings occur. breathe into the tension of opposites, breathe into the middle way, avoid extremes but enjoy the show.

     Here its wise to play but keep rooted to one’s spiritual mindfulness, one’s spiritual practice, one’s stillness at the eye of the storm. Full Moon is when the Sun and Moon , the inner and outer , tug at each other often finding opposing points of view. With Pluto ’T-Squaring’ Sun and Moon opposition, there is serious sense of foreboding, death, need to rise higher, and need to renew, rebirth, reactivate higher notions, angels, virtues. Its in the air.

     Strong sense of unfairness and need for justice in news again. Pluto impels one to look to deeper issues at cause of outer effects. A sense of either birthing higher self in oneself, or sense of need to purify and make proper changes for higher calling, work, and play.

   Strong sense thru to mid October of wanting to lose oneself to find oneself. Also of wanting to more deeply discover oneself to lose the crazy outer things bugging and eating at you. avoid ‘Creature Comforts’ of feeding astral entities. Fear is where lack of love. Anger takes away other’s freedom and its lack of honest need to keep learning for oneself better way to go rather than force or manipulation for results. For some a very amazing time of spiritual connection, artistic creative adventure, and new found inner freedoms. Its all about the training of the mind and the capacity to cognize and creatively interact. See tibetan lama Gelek Rimpoche book Odyssey to Freedom for lam rin gradual path. See Outline of Occult Science for Grail ‘gradual path’ of wisdom enlightenment.

October 14th Sun square Pluto and Moon conjunct Uranus. Negative emotions, using forceful tactics, projecting anger, guilt, blame, shame, jealousy, create more negativity and trouble. Have an opinion or personal facts but leave others free to get it on their own.  Things can happen really fast here. Many seem to be losing it. Panic and feelings of being overwhelmed need to be balanced by nature walks, slowing things down, chewing food better, yoga and exercise, getting enough sleep, and consciously striving and working one’s mind into working for higher attainment, study, learning, growing. Its a question of balancing work and play, balancing others with self willed learning and spiritual growth.

   For some its a question of taking good break from the come around go around repeat offenders and crazies, zombies, aliens, vampires, and negatives. Taking a break from what you can fix and retreat, retreat to heal, repair, renew, review, study, reflect, to re-emerge later.

    Second half of month influenced by Jupiter conjunct Ceres the Mother Astroid. Many feel like mothering or feel need to be mothered. Hearty oatmeals, soups, grains and greens, squash go far here to nourish, but we also need to nourish the soul with greater spirit truth and love. Yoga, reading, meditation, renewed vigor for self improvement rather than always trying to improve others and having results that ‘nothing is good enough’.

    Also second part in particular but all month, a sense of Demeter the Great Mother attempting to redeem that fallen part of us, that Persephone fallen or on an important mission in the underworld, earth, to redeem lost souls and parts to return to wholeness, being co-creative agency for positive change, gardening both earthy and spiritual awakening soul, higher angelic proclivity, virtue minded Spirit for the World, in a Word, ‘LOVE, higher Love. SparkSunshine to weave yr wings back on. (my song on youtube, ‘Weave your Wings” Weave love through every heart and mind, feeling at one with every other. There is One Light and Love, each is unique lampshade, cover and mask, art, over the oneness. Here there is no enemy, only temporary ignorance and illusion, lack of seeing truth holding us all. Be the love heals one and all. Unity in diversity. We are all born equal in our opportunity and chance of enlightenment, higher flowering of consciousness, love and truth. ‘We the People, for the People, by the People’  our Constitution and Bill of Rights, Declaration of Principles idealizes. Its not wee on the people, make fortunes off people, and buy the peoples. Its time to respect and honor all living. This takes education and love.Be the change you’re looking for. Share but make time for yourself.

Oct 15th Mercury in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces. Escapism or is it spiritual idealism inspiriting greater adventure? Take care not to be too busy that you miss your own subtle mind whispers of divine intent, fate, destiny, opportunity knocking.

Oct. 21st Venus trine Neptune. Ideals of love overtake one’s day to day mind. Good for planning the future, trips, adventures, music and the arts. Avoid too many sweet or burdening dead foods, this is a time to feel life, respond to a greater call of the wild. Primal instincts and dreams over ride mundane matters.

Oct. 23rd Sun enters Scorpio. Passion and selfishness struggle with necessity and inevitability. Fate and destiny clink glasses. Coming four weeks like a game of Truth or Consequences, bad karma or divine destiny. Watch and learn, pick a curtain and walk on through. Some more passionately throw themselves into the game, some turn cold. Remember to treat others how you would like to be treated. Have a strong opinion but leave others free to discover for themselves. Avoid making judgements and critique of others that serves no one good. Change what can be changed, otherwise keep to being a student of life long learning. Pick your battles maybe, but face honestly what is right before you. Sneaks get tweeted in coming times. The honest secret is great virtues sleep to awaken from within. Making others cause of your happiness or sadness doesn’t work in long run. Just cus you don’t show it, don’t mean you don’t need to own it. Negativity is its own result, more negativity to come. Be positive.

Oct 24-26th Dark Moon Lilith conjunct Venus (influence starts oct 17th with mercury/Lilith conjoined). A very sensuous time (or severe lack of gravity) attempting to find union with greater possibilities and notions. Subtle airs of soul mating or seeking higher power, knowing. Important to worry more of one’s own proclivities and subtle mind, one’s own subtle mind, right motive, action, with more self love and truth, the more sharing.

October 27th New Moon in Scorpio, Mars in Libra square Saturn in Capricorn. Lots of pressure on for truth in facts. Strong sense of need for renewal, cleansing, purifying, completing things and moving on.

Mars/Saturn has things at stand off, or standing still, feeling need for use of force or higher authority to get things done. Mars can be angelic or virtuous help/aid. Saturn can be wisdom come through time, elder assistance, karma straightening things out and teaching lessons. Many a line now drawn in the sand. Very serious and foreboding, yet come monday october 24th Sun oppose Uranus, may make many a surprise turn, reversal, sudden change of plans, surprise, or shock. Sudden change or new information redirecting things. Upsets, shifts, surprises, novelty, wit at play. Sun is light on uranus changes.

Oct. 29th Moon conjunct Venus and Mercury with Mercury conjunct Venus on  Oct 30th makes for smooth sailing and clear skies, luck, out of nowhere. Also sudden sense of truth, love, new sane reality, appearance of what may work tor creative progress or good for most of us.

Oct 31st Halloween has Moon conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius, but also Mercury goes retrograde at the end of Scorpio until November 20th., trine Neptune along the way. Good for parties and catching up on biographies and stories. Many want to dream out, space out, let go of tough reality. Possible severe weather and winter coming, but now frolic night before all saints, all virtues day.

     in coming weeks mercury retro; Many dream on or fall back. Perhaps many too high? Meds not working right? False imagination? Desires and fears having trouble with reality and hard cold facts? Good time to prepare oneself for better futures to come, or a need to step back from some situation your are not ready for, or not well thought out enough with details. With Mercury retrograde its best not to make heavy agreements you may not want to follow through on later. Avoid major decisions. On the other hand, astrology works in opposites and higher and lower octaves of event possibility depending on the individual~ how smart, how good the karma, capacity, talent. So Mercury retrograde can be a time to really get to know what you want, desire, and aim for, Good time to overcome fear with greater love and truth. Good time to dream real and plan good futures. Good time to fall back and fix a few things, making right on some mistakes not flight to further mistakes and hard learning. Some feel trapped or stuck and fume or boil over; but working on new learning always helpful for new views, greater perspective. Avoiding hiding under the mask or being fooled by someone who is. Good time to find right direction for higher love calling vocation work play.

November 2nd Moon occulting Saturn/Pluto subtly triggers impending troubles, problems, hurts needing solutions and healing.

Nov. 5th Mars square Pluto is a sad affair, some sorry they didn’t dare a higher highway truth and love. Such aspect usually brings out the upset, anger, hate, gun play, violence, threats and counter threats. Such aspect spiritually is meant to fight of truth, goodness, justice, repair everywhere. Deep compassion and passion for truth and love needs banish fear, hate, crookedness.

Nov.. 8th Sun sextile Saturn, Sun tine Neptune, Such aspect works to bring a more peace and harmony to warring sides. An attempt at compromise and agreement is at work everywhere. The ideal and workable compromise is struck for many. Peace and Love have a day or two here, perhaps a month.

Nov. 12th Full Moon in sensuous and honestly practical down to earth sign of Taurus. Happy week to come making things work for self and other.

Nov 14th Venus square Neptune is silly idealistic or otherworldly, Beware of false dreams or signs and dreams misinterpreted. Good for poetics, lovers, artists, musicians, heavenly bodies and spiritual wanderings, journeys.

Nov 20th mercury goes direct. Much insight into past pushes us positively into future.

Astrology and Spiritual Science Art of Soul Weaving september into 2020

September 9th, 2019
ASTROLOGY NOW! Stormy weather, roller coaster ride with love and money, and tough travel or executing/ completing plans with 4 planets in Virgo. Virgo can be too sharp, critical, avoiding reality or over indulging without higher lift off in event. Here nothing is good enough and addiction to perfection rather than finding wholeness and balance, can diminish the times and value of one’s experience or right interpretation of experience and dream. These daze…. Venus, mercury, sun, mars is opposing Neptune in Pisces. Neptune is known as the god of the seas, emotions, wet, victim or crazy delusional, but also highest spirituality, virtuous activity, angelic experience.
Virgo/Pisces T squared by Jupiter can inflate everything and get out of bounds with good or ill behaviour. Can ego trip or or be tripped by fear, of leaving the known and clinging to perishables. Here negativity or virtue is its own reward. Strong urge to grow. Such aspect, strongly impelling to many, can bring feeling lost,or wishing to escape, or keep on partying while Rome floods or burns, is repressed or compressed, pressured into rather than educated and inspired to.
Many influenced by Jupiter in Sagittarius, to get smarter, rise to the occasion (like Marianne Williamson), and flex their renewed angelic virtue mind wings in the passion for truth and love, friends and loving earth, all ‘God’s creatures’. A sense of spiritual being, becoming, Presence Divine. A sense of dancing with positive changes.
Last of the wild craziness and going to extremes, as well as opposite, a heart soul spirit for freedom love truth~~~ IS THIS SATURDAY SEPT.14TH FULL MOON WITH MARS OPPOSE NEPTUNE; the vibe and impelling (not compelling) influence is in the air now for ‘something big to happen. Lets hope for the good true beautiful. Yet, this week, ‘it ain’t just exactly clear’! May take later in month, this coming January, or even till December 2020’s big Grail and World Pentecost (higher Kundalini Yoga aspect). Now and for last months, a strong time for arts, music, musing, poetics, spiritual experience and intuitive encounter. This can be soothing dreamy or its opposite; ‘this can’t be happening’. A ‘god help me’ vs ‘holy smokes i’m sparked and sparkled by the holy spirit, the great goddess or World Mother , divine intervention, compassion and hope. Love and truth play out into the third Jupiter square Neptune come sept. 21 (its been influencing last several months~ some in denial put their heads under the ground while others are suddenly dawning and sprouting, winging and emerging with new insights, wisdom, higher love and consciousness, new or renewed adventure to stop the apocalypse of inner and out nature. Remember the song ‘Its Nature’s Way of Telling you, something’s wrong’ ? Virgo wants to clean things up but can be too critical and “nothing’s good enough”. Excuses made to not act, not be the solution, not rid the pollution inside out. Pisces and Jupiter want to believe in miracles. The ultimate miracle is selfless learning, experiencing what every self is going through. The ultimate miracle is we can think for ourselves. Thank you Prometheus, Buddha, Hermes, Christ, Krishna, Athena.
Saturn going direct around sept. 18th will more accurately critique the situation with how much work on oneself is needed to fulfill the mission of happiness, freedom, truth and love in a good, true, beautiful way. True, though maybe humble new ways of working with others will start to present themselves in next few weeks and months.
New Moon Oct. 27th into January 2020 Saturn/Pluto conjunction may bring new indications and strong realizations, wake up calls. Yes, for some a really strong aspect for manifesting dreams and ideals, but for most extremes in the weather, cold, cold shoulders and hearts, slipping backwards or to dictorial dictates, authoritarian command, limitations, striving in survival mode, spiritually if not physically. The good ol’USA needs a spiritual, a virtuous, heart mind renewal and awakening of genius. To the higher self, all strivings, sufferings, hard workings, is the labor pain of a higher birth, a further revelation and growth. Compassion and patience is key to the heart of the great mother.
Look for December 2020 when Jupiter/Saturn conjunct (happens every 20 years, so 2020, 2000, 1980, 1960…1920; its the bring of big collective shifts of consciousness and opportunities to grow in new ways). Jupiter Saturn is every 20 years but every 60 years is challenging. Its (60yearCycle is two Saturn Returns and 5 Jupiter returns. Think 1960 new hippies for peace and love! Think1920 on, both roaring 20’s but also Rudolf Steiner building the Goetheanum, it fire bombed burnt down, his rebuilding second spiritual mystery school Goetheanum, and his outpouring of spiritual wisdom, Anthroposophy. Jupiter/Saturn is mostly a Positive meeting of heaven and earth, peace among enemies, justice and compassion world wide, spiritual and material values meeting to agree in harmony and peace, a new renewed understanding of the arts, the art of being human and not machine and animal. What makes this Jupiter/Saturn really interesting and different is ths ~ this time Jupiter/Saturn conjoined is in Aquarius which hasn’t happened since 13th century time of Sacred Chartres Cathedral being finally built and activated to bring together Platonic and Aristotelean values and knowledge, to bring spiritual wisdom knowledge co-creative with both Spirit and whole earth evolution to each and every person not just the elite aristocracy. It was a time of Gothic Cathedral building, sacred temple and architecture built for spiritual experience, a conscious sense of ‘at-one-ment’ rather than ‘atonement. A time of Divine proclivities, spiritual quest, high virtue striving, holy workings, a sense of One for All and All for One. It was the time of the Cathars, the Templars, the Holy Grail and its guardians that feed all the little ones, a sense of spiritual and physical nourishment, love, wisdom knowledge. A time for attempting acts of social justice and equality for women and children to participate creating healthier future. There was a sense, thanks to the spiritually educated Templars, that every man and woman is his or her own Pope and King. Freedom and equality was in the air, education was free.
It was also the time of the Rosicrucian beginnings (see Bamford’s book ‘the rosicrucian stream’) where spiritual ethic moral insights and self evident thinking, a spiritual science (like later Blavatsky and Rudolf Steiner) would try to introduce, more than just a neoPlatonic renewal, but a call for world renewal and spiritual revitalization. That wisdom and love should rule the world. (Hello Marianne Williamson! and more)) Rosy Cross teachings tried to heal the materialistic alone dictates and authority enslaving souls to sense bound thinking and values. The High Romance of Enlightenment was early in the air.
So we are now in September 2019, in the last of the idealistic dream and hope, the last of the imagination and first stirrings, of what could be and should be ~ peace and love ruling the world, higher holy consciousness transforming the war animal and machine into gardening family and friends. We are in a transforming world calling to incarnate our highest dreams and imaginations for love compassion sake, for wisdom truth courage creativity. We a ‘wee bit’ lack the language or clear mind for such, but generally our hearts and spirit souls are overflowing with wanting such, postive possibilities, opportunities, and good adventure, work and play are at hand and at play. The saturn aspects will both weed and trim to more workable life style, as well as help manifest destiny and dreamy ideals into reality. Our thoughts need to inspire, our inspirations need to activate and go to work. Intuitions abound, work on what’s right in front of you. We have all eternity to ‘get it’, but there is not a second to spare. Awaken Now, Be Still and Know! Boil all your troubles into One, self cherishing. Distill your heart’s mind into the elixor of enlightenment. Be the alchemist in your heart soul’s listening attuning, make spiritual heart gold from the darkness and craziness, not just lemonade! Aha!
Inwardly now, at the time of ‘Michaelmas’ and Fall, Autumn Ra, now in September, look within to boldly go without. Looking inwardly we are all experiencing a new spring, a renewed conviction and sureness, that love and truth will one day rule in both high and low place. That everything will find its place, and we each our true calling, work, love, and garden of friends. Now is the time to call on our Higher Angel, our Higher Self, hearts be listening! It is time to become the dream, become the art, become the truth, to live the life we dream come true. Invoke the Higher SELF in everyday life. (see Blavatsky ‘Key to Theosophy’, or Steiner’s ‘Theosophy’ or ‘Road to Self Knowledge’, at mayflowerbookshop.com or online for free!
Happy full moon September 14th coming, happy bigger lovetruth. Happy new moon september 28th, for many to renew or spark new beginnings. Happy Saturn/Pluto challenges and world crunch come January 2020 (Cardinal Signs of Cancer, Aries, Libra, Capricorn most affected the most with compelling learning situations, contractions of higher self heart birthing). Taurus Virgo can most benefit from this time.
Come December 2020 Jupiter/Saturn in Aquarius conjunct; Air signs Libra, Gemini, Aquarius benefit the most. Challenged by karma then to grow in new ways are Leo, Scorpio, Taurus. Each of us has these signs in specific houses or areas of life (ie. work, play, love, calling, day to day, other and more). Look in your astrology chart. Get your chart to see where you are most affected (free astrology charts all over the internet). You may want to visit Mayflower Bookshop to purchase a good astrology calendar and book!
