my new song ‘Come Golden Friends’ here ~

‘Selling your musical instrument for a gun is one thing, but selling your gun for a musical instrument is everything. Welcome to the age of aquarius, curious and in wonder of every loving thing…..; and hopefully not waiting for whale vomit to make your daily bread, money.” ~robert of mayflower

from last month’s news~
“Late November 2020 USA Chart, Sagittarius Rising, has transit of Saturn conjunct USA Natal Pluto; possible indicating last of tough times due to the pandemic, …..It could be also, a very cold beginning of winter. Saturn/Pluto makes one feel forced into things. Good for long term goals, not good for personal freedoms and play. Feelings overworked and no play make for depressive weather. December solstice jupiter saturn conjunct in Aquarius may very well be the beginning of the end of the pandemic and mass hysteria , anger, angst, and psychic civil unrest and anti social behaviour of last months and more. Many will start to feel more of the Aquarian ideals of brother and sisterly behaviour toward each other, a sense of one family humanity. Hopefully too stability in friendships, family, home, economics will begin.”

NOW——
December AstroNews~ (aspects can influence days before and after)
Dec. 1st Mercury moves from cunning secretive sneaky crafty critical Scorpio and its power plays of accusing others while avoiding disclosing honest facts, to Mercury entering Sagittarius dec.1st till the 20th. Mercury in Sage Sagittarius is more upfront with high ideals of social and political justice and fair play. Danger of being too busy, over optimistic, over thinking and talking, but great time to seek a higher minded way to go. Lots of new ideas and ways to future go emerge hopefully to uplift our spirits and not confuse and weary us!
Here, Motivation conceives and conditions perception.

Each friend represents a world in us,
a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting that
a new world is born.
-Anais Nin

Dec. 5th Venus in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces makes for magical mystical visionary heart mind. Ideals and dreams for the future infiltrate one’s day. Soul escapades and higher love, friendship, spiritual or spirited encounters possible. On the other hand, United States debt and an unprecedented printing of money makes our money worth less, not quite yet worthless, and endangers long term security…., unless we are soon to leave money behind ~ for good or ill reasons. Such aspect too keeps dreamers dreaming and not quite aware of the deforestation and death of plants and animals that hold the bottom line on human survival on this planet of ours. Ah, excuse me, this planet of rich people and devils of power over rather than power through life. Only love and compassion and a new willingness to learn can uplift us of the dangers we seem to be in. Remote controls may shoot someone, but they can’t grow and love mother earth, da! La de da!

“I am a lover of what could be, i divine the holy in each person; not because i am holy, but because i seek that in myself.”
~robert of mayflower
Dec. 7th (may influence well into december) Jupiter conjuncts USA natal Pluto. Major power plays that may cause strong social cultural shift with stock market reactions. May prove tough month for the markets. But we will see. More on markets later. This aspect will play into Dec. 23rd Mars/Pluto aspect. Will the virus come on heavier than ever or is this december the last of the worst and the turning point of a return to love/compassion/wisdom/understanding/and healing? The latter is in my view finder.
Dec. 9th Sun square Neptune may create clash between honest facts and dreamy idealistic feelings. Reality may be at odds with magical carpet rides. Venus textile Pluto dec.10th keeps things in check with bottom line needs or wants. Avoid miscommunications and misleading statements, false futures, and wanderlust angels lacking true soul wisdom knowledge.

“Everything happens through you, not to you. Only if one sees rightly, karma and reincarnation, can one know everything is perfect for you to get it, enlightened, free from worry and co-creative with infinite possibilities.” ~robert of mayflower

Dec 10-11th Sun trines Mars in fire signs. Great energy bursts and ‘balls of fire’. Strong inspirational fiery thrustsof energy to go forward, proceed, get things done, lift things up; a sense of ‘do it NOW! Sparks and outbursts of positive action, adventures, futures.
December 12-into 13th Comet Erasmus reaches close to the Sun inside Mercury perihelion.affecting week or more before and after. Comets can quick bring things into our life, and/or bring things or us out of body or situation. Comets can cleanse us of tough karma and give wisdom learning lessons. Mutable signs affected the most, Sagittarius/Gemini/Pisces/Virgo planets and houses, sun or moon. Born mid December/June/March/Sept affected the most. Leo and Aries get a nice wiggle and swish of energy from it. Many of us may get significant insights, dreams, events, lighten or enlighten our way.

Fear, hatred, and suspicion
narrow your mind –
compassion opens it.
– Dalai Lama

Dec. 13th Mercury Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces. Truth and honest facts may be a bit obscure or lost in the blur of false clouds of doubt and projection. Nutty news one can’t trust? Good aspect for magical thinking, mystic moods, psychic perception, but one must stay practical and not trust future promises perhaps.

“Without freedom every thing is lost;
Without love, nothing is found.”
~~robert thibodeau, Hermetic Laws

Dec. 14th New Moon Solar Eclipse at 28 Sage Sagittarius. Also same day Venus sextile Jupiter, Mercury trine Mars. A great couple weeks, or even a month, of rethinking positive aims, future plans, connections, new inner growth with many outer possibilities to come. Those born mid Dec/March/June/Sept. may be in for cha cha changes which may shake you but lead you to happier times. If you are purposely trying to make positive changes in your life, this aspect is for you. Eclipses offer us a time to eclipse wrong habits, trading them in for more positive activities and futures. Love, job and money, travel plans, moves, its on you now to progress or regress. Mysterious falls from grace vs new cognition and rise in fortune and good fortune.

We need to learn to help the world
rather than help ourselves to the world.
-robert of mayflower

December 15th Venus enters Sagittarius wishes for love to have both higher intelligence and a few powerful future plans to make dreams come true. Venus moves from unconscious or secretive strong powers of attraction but locked down or repressed, to more open clear light, higher minded, adventurous amorous passage unchained from fear or littleness, jealousy or possessiveness. More open minded heart mind sharing, community building yet highly individualized freedom adventure.

You are the only you, unique you, ever existed in all the worlds in all the times; and if you cannot hear and share the unique true you, you will with all your life dance toe to toe with the puppeteer and weirdo behind the shadow screen or money matter bible car and desk to the ends of the world without end without ever knowing yourself both part of it all and uniquely private, separate, sacred, spatial, in time and transcended, alive and kicking, loving and unending in your commitment to truth, to who you are, to the passion unites you with the highest dream.
-robert of mayflower

Dec. 16th to 19th Saturn then Jupiter enter Aquarius as Jupiter drives ahead of the negative control freaking Saturn/Pluto, giving all of us a fresh breath of air and a sense of better futures to come.

“I postpone death by living, by suffering, by error,
by risking, by giving, by losing.”
~anaïs nin

December 20th Mercury enters sign of Capricorn making minds serious about exact timing and event, bills and karma.
Dry humor with wisdom insight arises. A sense of a good hand on the rudder steering the boat ahead.

“An addiction is anything we do to avoid
hearing
the messages
that body and soul are trying to send us.”
~  ~marion woodman

December 21st Solstice with shortest day and longest night of the year, while the earth travels closer to the sun and folks in the northern hemisphere look within to rebirth inner light. All the ancient celebrations of the birth of the hero or Spirit of the Sun occurred at this time. The four day passage from solstice to ‘Christmas’ reflects the Theosophical and Anthroposophical conception and perception of our being on the 4th of seven EARth evolutions; in which on this 4th, the ‘I AM’ appears in each of us. With Sun near square to Chiron, it becomes clear how many need self healing and inner clarity, certainty, and conviction as to nature of true self, work, calling, destiny.

Also on this Dec. 21st, Jupiter conjuncts Saturn (once every 20 years). in Aquarius close to squaring Uranus in Taurus. Jupiter rules fun, friends, partying, growth and expansion, as well as philosophy and religion, the collective consensus. Saturn rules contractions, endings/death, seriousness down to business, self willed individual pursuits, egotistic endeavor, the ruling class. Jupiter/Saturn together shift the status quo of the priests and politicians of money and law. While in Capricorn Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto acted more like the mafia of the soul, manufactured consent, dictators and plutocrats of idols and big money power over rather than through. As these planets go into Aquarius we may learn to be a planetary democracy of collective commonwealth, learning and healing, advancement by community effort, out of freedom and ‘what’s right to do’, a rebuilding and healing of mother earth. Or, we may slip into a lack of personal freedom and individuality, big brother rather than brother/sisterhood, extravagant plans and hopes without sure footing and long term sure planning, action. Loss of a social life for a funny combination of eccentric royalty based of money, power, decadence, and lack of simple pleasure and appetite. The last time Jupiter/Saturn conjoined in Aquarius was the latter 1100’s and the early 1200’s when Troubadours, Grail Seekers, Gothic Cathedrals, Platonic/Aristotelian Chartres Cathedral universities and spiritual freedom and intelligence confronted the authoritative Church and Witch hunts. Its a time when spiritual intelligence and loving hearts try to temper the crude authoritative dictators and powers that be in religion and state with higher truths and wisdom love for all life, all worlds, all cultures and arts.

‘Sex don’t work without love, love don’t work without birthing a better future for all of us. It takes time to know em, ourselves, and the big picture….’
~robert of mayflower

December 22-23rd Black Moon Zoom Lilith conjunct Uranus has been making for the most unusual, novel, unique, creatively awakening sexual relationships this last month into next. Obviously some are writing their own Osho or Chopra ‘Book of Secrets’ and Karma Sutra; or is it divine encounter changing one’s direction and heightening awareness in spiritual virtue mind heart sharing. Some spin off in reaction, some at cause for higher interaction, some just avoid by more sleep. Definitely time for the unique wild woman to appear in more leadership captain role.

“Without sex, none of us would be here; without love, who would stay!?!” ~robert of mayflower

December 23rd Mars squares Pluto for the 3rd time and moon conjuncts Mars. Dangerous time to travel, assert oneself too strongly, or take any risk or gamble. Watch out for rough weather, storms, insane psycho drama, negative emotions, jealousy, anger, big political and money power plays, challenges in the markets. One really needs individual chart to see how this works out. Some with other good aspects may harness and direct this rough energy for beneficial results. Some internalize it, clean up their mess, help others less fortunate, deal with reality head on. Some try to manipulate through guilt, shame, blame. Some go the high way of eliminating wrong habits and trying to change self to change the world, or perhaps some hugely courageous at helping others. Some go the low road and road rage projected enemy, rail road perceived challengers. Strange endings and new beginnings mid december into january either haunt or inspire spark many a mind. Good aspect for starting or researching new avenues of expression, job, and friendships. Avoid negative projections. Excessive energy and force for good or evil is afoot here. Dangerous time in investments and stock markets.

The real secrets can’t be told,
but must be lived to be realized.
~robert of mayflower

December 25th Christmas Festival. Mercury trine Uranus. Big time of sharing one’s mind and thoughts. Lots of accurate insights into the world situation, money matters, and making relationships work or properly change, grow. Sun trine Uranus on 27th adds to this positive spirit of new enterprise and change. Earth signs feel it strongest; Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo.

on Christmas theosophically speaking here ~
https://www.theosophyforward.com/articles/theosophy/137-the-christmas-story
All true festivals reveal secrets of spiritual evolution and awakening that each of us human beings can learn from. For instance , Santa coming down the chimney or kundalini spinal column, to give the Christmas Presence under the Tree of Life. Or, the Higher Self shines down from the star that the 3 wise men (thinking, feeling, willing spiritualized) follow to the deep heart’s birth place of Christos Hermes, the buddha mind, the more fully realized self. It would take me an hour of talking to share all my insights on Christmas symbolism of inner reality and developing states of higher consciousness. Perhaps i will post such talk on my youtube channel.
Here is what Rudolf Steiner thinks on it ~
https://wn.rsarchive.org/Lectures/Christmas/ChrMas_index.html

Dec. 29th Full Moon in Cancer/Capricorn axis. With Venus/Neptune square, these days here full of idealistic futures, divine love encounters, soul mates or platonic adventure, future planning, etheric exuberance. Psychic or disturbing dreams. Mysterious happenings hard to explain.Virgin Mary and UFO sightings. Danger of overdosing or over doing, otherwise mystical and magical. This is funny or strange time in relationships where a few miscues take place. Some debate or unconsciously get pulled into ‘baby or not’, or dealing with big babies, or having to mother others draining one’s energy or resources. Good to find creative time as well as down time in this time. Good for all the arts and play if not over indulgent or unconsciously streaming. Dreams are oracular if you know how to interpret rightly.

You don’t find love, it finds you.
It’s got a little bit to do with destiny, fate,
and what’s written in the stars.
-Anaïs Nin

Astrology Predictions for November and December 2020! with robert of mayflower

In answer to many of you asking me for my astrological and spiritual take on the times, here goes another quick note to you ~~~~
(see past posts for how i predicted four and half years ago Mr.Trumps victory to President, as well as predicion he would lose this time no matter who ran!).
Astrology Now! Enlightenment and growth, relationships, job, career calling opportunities for many, but also stress and tension getting free to do anything!
this week on hot aspects affecting us all include~~~
1) Mars in Aries retrogrades to oppose Venus in Libra in the sky, Monday Nov.9th.
2)Jupiter conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn for third time Nov. 12th.
3) Mars goes direct from retrograde on the Nov.13th, and in Pres.Trump’s chart N.Node conjuncts his progressed Uranus!
4) Nov. 19-20 Transiting Saturn conjuncts Pluto in USA chart.
5) Nov. 29-30 Full Moon Lunar eclipse on USA Uranus opposing USA Sagittarius Rising.

interpretations here~

A)Mars retro in Aries oppose Venus in Libra on 9th for some brings a ‘return to love’ sense of balance and fairness. Also passion for love and polarity, give and take. On negative side its tactless attacks on others perceived as opposing, ‘one up man ship’, pirate like behaviour, cat and dog arguments and fights, dissatisfied ornery hot and cold, cold and hot erratic behaviour. Need to harmonize etheric and astral bodies by walks in nature, healthy diet, yoga or meditation, creative visualization and breath work that enlightening happiness is coming, perhaps you going to, one and all, starting with you. A need to return to true friendships and right work healing to the soul. Appreciating others good intentions and passion first before perhaps trying to redirect perceived negative energies. Bigger love needs lead unconscious instinct for fight or flight.

B) Jupiter conjunct Pluto on Nov.12th may prove to be good. Jupiter is the love of the social, sharing, good will, family and friends. Its been behind Saturn and Pluto and now will take the lead of Pluto this week, and then SATurn late december. More group cooperation and less psychic emotional civil war and delusional conspiracy projections then. But Jupiter Pluto can be social unrest, the death and rebirth of ‘social identity’, culpability, vulnerability, blame shame game stuff with rise and fall of big name fame gamesters. At best its collective wisdom and compassion, at worst its social diseases. Will this be peak of pandemic!? Likely. Still astrologically thinking Winter Solstice Dec. 20th Jupiter/Saturn in Aquarius beginning of the end of this modern pandemic; we will find a way. Also then time of world peace making and steady as she goes abilities. Long term plans of world economy and social justice, peace, start to sink in so to future grow in merit.
Here one needs see the Consciousness Soul of the World and its struggle for peace of mind and a personal garden to sacred share.
Jupiter/Pluto is the ‘desire for power’ and plutocratic tendencies (Ebertin). Attaining leadership or losing leadership, in this case both. It is greed and egotism, desiring solid incontestable ground when everything is still fluidic. Its attempt to lock the creatively free spirit of community into hard rules which stifle the life and love of land, water, air, plants, animals, the little ones, true education and love all life, all others. In Capricorn, its the collective social cultural mindset of rights and justice for the few or for all, but limited to materialistic quantitative workings, as well as abstract disincarnate idealisms of everybody being happy somehow without ‘working on oneself’, educating oneself, developing ‘prajna paramitas’ or higher self virtues and universal mind, the thinking in all things, the harmony and rhyme of spirit and soul weaving through all forms
. Most often with this aspect comes false enthusiasm or depression based on materialistic alone values lacking virtue, ethics, education, and true compassionate will to act, for love of all life. To say nothing of the principles of karma and reincarnation or neoplatonic, hermetic, theosophical, buddhist ‘virtue mind’ trainings and ethical development even of the likes Aristotle suggested..
Jupiter is ‘wanting the most for the many’ as my friend M would say. Pluto is the selfless knowing, the inner calm and making space equanimity for outer every changing factors. Jupiter and Pluto can be grandiosity, inflation, and big plans followed by deflation, loss, weird gambles of money/time/energy. But Jupiter/Pluto is also strong arc angelic impulses of the Christos or universal virtue mind for the good, true, beautiful. Be that, become that, ponder in radical stillness that!

C) Nov. 12-13th Mars direct should kick start new thinks, action and things into gear. Will it take that long to get the show on the road?
Mars retrograde direct on Nov.13th will be ‘big ass’ turning point or deepening of psychic split. Pres trump needs keep sane composure, otherwise bit of chaos and mayhem this coming week!? Mars in Aries can be feisty fighting spirit destructive, head strong, and self righteous, but of short duration. Up side is Artemis courage to protect those less fortunate. A will to keep learning, keep going on, till all the world is peacefully and creatively enlightened.

D) On nov 19-20th Saturn transit in sky conjunct Pluto in USA 1776 astrology chart. This aspect will help ground and lock down things that up to now were too up in the air and crazy or chaotic. It is like with musical chairs, its time to quickly find yr seat. Saturn is authority and pluto is plutocracy and plutocrats, corporate type communism or monopoly contol. It is unconscious instinct to want security and control at any cost. Its a rule by money, power, authority. Lets hope for the higher octave of this planetary combination, huge world compassion and social justice and opportunity for all. Invoke the magic of universal responsibility, Universal Wisdom and Compassion, time honored traditions and deep commitment to helping those less fortunate to have better opportunity to grow and know, heal and flow,flower in society.
This aspect sat/pluto in USA chart is critical time for reassessing long term goals and perhaps time for healing past karma. Disciplined yet open, selfless yet committed to truth and love holds us all is positive urge of Saturn/Pluto.

E) November 15th Full Moon Lunar Eclipse falls on USA Uranus in 7th house in opposition to USA Sagittarius Rising at 8 degrees. Surely this will be a critical time many will feel even dangerous time for democracy and freedom. Hopefully Uranus will function as the determination to be free of ignorance and delusion, free from knowing the truth holds all of us together whatever. This could be a shift to positive re-orchestrating who is friend, who awakens higher mind, versus who just causes trouble and delay, fault and disarray of higher ideals, virtues, workings. It too a critically dangerous time. Its a time to make changes or get put through changes which may be foreceful or upsetting. Its time to reset or be upset, time to reverse your wheels and head in new way or be put in reverse again by either you own wrong habits and thinking or others craziness. Time to be creative or be pushed out so to learn to fly on your own. Its time perhaps of crazy storms and nature happenings, things that make one rethink and blink for higher intuitions. Possible electrical mishaps, quakes, sudden shake ups and controversial happenings. Again, the higher octave is sudden realizations, facts, truths, that set things right again (or afterwards, after chaotic event). Tough time to travel too perhaps. Great time to ascend to the next higher level in the game of life.

Hopefully things straighten out and harmony prevails. I’m hoping that it doesn’t take until New Moon Eclipse Dec. 13th to reach collective consensus and mutually agreed forward motion progress into a better future for all. Why are so many acting like teen age brat johhny depp and company?!
Will it take to dec. 23rd mar square pluto to finally end wrong ways of life style and demon fault finding in others than working on oneself to be the truth and loving kindness, wisdom, in action. Dec. 23rd strong endings and new beginnings. Time to fully pull the weeds? Plant the seeds for a better future for all?

It’s really a mess now how many folks I know think evil conspiracies at work; demonizing rather than offering positive constructive solutions. Its also disheartening to see so many folks a bit too bipolar with their emotions and actions, fight or flight, attack or ‘stab in the back’, gossip and drainage of energy. Many caught in misuse or over use of meds, drugs, drink, negative emotions, and not well thought out long term thinking, planning, doing. The world needs a reset button on universal love and compassion, truth and self purification, universal brotherhood, sisterhood, and creative spiritual thinking, workings, feelings.

Mayflower Bookshop will continue to be committed to spiritual and religious education of every kind in hopes of promoting peace and loving kindness, universal responsibility and creativity for one and all. We are all artists of the invisible forces of the good, true, beautiful, the angel in our self and other. This higher dialogue need continue!. For this reason, the mayflower bookshop in Berkley Michigan carries every book possible concerning this virtuous education of the spirit soul mind, encouraging all to keep studying, its a life long learning, giving, sharing, and learning anew! There is no religion higher than Truth, no science deeper than Love, no art greater than being a human being, a brother or sister to all life!
Blessings on the Path.

Astrology Predictions Oct/November 2020, the AstroNews with robert of mayflower

October 28th, 2020

Astrological Notes
An AstroNews brief for S.T.A.A.R. Journal
Oct/Nov. 2020
robert of mayflower at
mayflowerbookshop.com
Author of ‘Astrological Aspects, the Art’
new songs on youtube mayflower bookshop robert thibodeau channel.
Sabian Temple of Astrological and Arcane Research.
All this is my astrological thoughts. Many asked for me to comment more. I’ve been working on new songs and finishing Tarot Book. But here is my quick unedited first draft of astrology now through november aspects with few comments!
No one can predict the future because everyone has free will to change, update, and rearrange. Astrology is the science art of interpreting tendencies, possibilities, probabilities, and another opportunity to use good common sense. Ben Franklin was an astrologer who made predictions by the way!
October 20th saw in USA progressed moon conj pluto (sag. Rising chart) and trumps prog. Moon square his uranus. I thought if these aspects don’t shake the markets, weather, and crazy times up, nothing will.
This prog moon to Pluto is market worries and pandemic spike, negative emotions, misuse of drugs/alcohol, but also sense of emotional renewal and need to find more deeply rooted life styles supporting the Higher Self. Many are seeking a more spiritual life style and happiness with less worry and ‘stuff’.
I think. We shall see if this weekend’s full moon with Sun oppose Uranus Oct. 31st (being felt now) turns markets around and gives many a new insight and breakthrough. The opposition aspect is often break down rather than break though. I wanted to mention the aspect so you can ponder events in that light. This coming week into October31st full Moon conjunct uranus, and sun oppose uranus, will shake and quake, storm and unearth us in new ways making some crazy days preceding and following. Uranus makes for erratic behavior, up and down markets, weather, and seismic shifts in consciousness.
Markets may reverse and rise up again for a bit with week ends aspect but if not, look for serious new lows. Its a wild time for sudden endings, new beginnings, explosive situations, quakes, storms, off and on weirdness, electrical disturbances and computer bugs, internet confusion, mail and communication problems, but also may offer quick solutions as suddenly as problems. Uranus always surprises, the intensity hits exact Fri/Saturday but things intensifying now approaching Saturday coming.

Last Thurs/Fri Oct. 22-23rd, moon conj Pluto/Sat may well have delayed triggered USA progress moon conjunct Pluto recent market falling up to thousand points prediction. But end of week into Monday will tell the story. – but we will see- wild crazy near insane times for many folks.
Gosh, i wish World was more loving kind respectful, joyous and happy. We need more awareness of clean air and water, good food and education for all.

Mercury retrograde till day of Election will certainly make for a phenomenal history making day good or bad depending on how you look at it. It may take near week to figure out what happened.

Jupiter Pluto conjunct again coming up mid November reflects the huge voting turn out and the huge social identity ‘death and rebirth’ this last year.

This Weekend Full moon at end of weekend lookin up to be a cliff hanger, wild and unexpectable, unpredictable, sudden rise and fall, reversals; and perhaps wonderfully creative for some.

The world needs a dancing fever, not a pandemic! -Aria Fairchild
As progressed Moon in USA Astrology chart enters Aquarius on November4th, look for the American people to feel the age of Aquarius is just around the corner. December Solstice Jupiter/Saturn conjunct in Aquarius will drive the message home. Hopefully the psychic civil war and the pandemic will begin to cease then. Many peoples at this time feel they are waking up from a bad dream.

AstroNews November 2020 (aspects may influence days before and after).

President Trump will have a hard time winning with transiting Neptune opposing his natal Asc/Neptune midpoint; while transit of Neptune close to T-Square with natal Sun/Node and Moon opposition. Neptune can be mystical but also unseen forces, the invisible hand if you will. Who knows!? Pluto opposing Saturn is authoritatively feisty and feels powers greater are confronting. Saturn opposing natal Venus makes you feel unloved by even those close to you. Mars square natal Mercury/Saturn midpoint makes one feel like a warrior at war. Pres.Trump has tough aspects. When i predicted Mr.Trump to win the first election, i then predicted he would lose this coming one. I get its very complicated but I am sticking to the original prediction that he will lose the seat of office. Pres. Trump’s transit of Pluto trine his midheaven is powerful and who knows if he is capable of magic again. This aspect can give him big money and power and makes it hard to sue him or get to him. Yet all those other difficult aspects should work to retire him. Astrology always has a higher and lower octave allowing each individual to transform negatives to positive outcome. In this light, no one can for sure predict the future all the time because there is free will. It is possible Pres.Trump’s Neptune aspects play into Senator Biden’s speech foibles and possible stress and health. We shall see. Election day time Pres.Trump has Neptune oppose prog. Moon. This can be very confusing and he may feel quite abandoned. It can also be strange spiritual experiences and other worldly encounters. Can be spiritual revelations and dream messages. He will sound profoundly philosophical and spiritual, or profoundly confused, depending on who is listening. I wonder if Oprah and Michelle Obama’s good aspects election time indicate Pres.Trumps losing the next election. Aha! We shall see.
Who ever wins, the aspects are tough on both sides. One wonders if the VP will be President before the end of the four years. This fits into many a conversation of the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction every 20 years affecting possible loss of President to VP by mysterious events including death. Mercury retro square Saturn on november 1st and again when Mercury direct on Nov. 5th makes for 5 days of heavy head thinking, blocks, delays, obstructions, calling for much patience and forbearance. Patience and wisdom needed to overcome things and events, happenings, that seem unfair. Mercury in Libra wants fairness, balance, social justice, even love. Saturn in Capricorn wants control and rules by authority, not loving kindness, compassion, and social justice. On and around election day, Mercury going direct trines usa Moon at 26 Aquarius, should give the majority of Americans a feeling they are getting their minds and home back. Also in USA chart transiting venus trines uranus making for a sense of love’s victory over hate and violence. Freedom and love are in the air.
Nov. 9th Venus in Libra opposes Mars in Aries. This makes for love fights or amazing love connections. Let your higher self choose love. All cardinal signs strongly affected. Airs signs need flow to flower, stay in the pocket of harmony and love. Fire signs need gently seize the time. Cardinal signs need to avoid force or contesting, over aggressing or being overly critical; as well as not feeling too passive and run over. None the less, good time for the dance and romance of action heroes and champions of peace and love making.
Nov. 12th Jupiter conjunct Pluto again for last time signifying further social cultural restructuring. A complete death and rebirth of social identity. The pandemic really exasperated this feeling of social behaviour restructuring. Its also a strong aspect for restructuring your long term money and security planning. Different and new views of relationship and courting emerging. Jupiter/Pluto makes folks go way big with money and love plans. Some climb a mountain, some just fix up their house right where they are. Avoid gambling big, you could lose big. Jupiter Pluto aspects make many act like a mad teenager who wants their way. It can impulse some to amazing selfless behaviour helping others less fortunate, or it can demonize some with incredible selfishness, hoarding, and power plays stealing wealth over wisdom.
Nov. 13th Mars goes direct banishing retarded behaviour of last few months and invoking a will to plow forward with plans whether doable or not. Mars in hard aspect to capricorn Saturn/Pluto has precipitated much anger, hatred, violence, fear in the world. Now that its going forward lets hope real earthy practical workings bring us all to more security and peace come the new year when mars enters Taurus.
Nov. 15 Venus square Pluto ~ Feelings of deep intimacy and connection, or feelings of rejection, hurt and estrangement. Important to have good sense of wisdom compassion for others. Avoid helping those who either don’t want your help or who you are unable to help and waste your time.
Nov. 16 – Venus square Jupiter. Loving not matter, or struggling to find love? A coming back with a happy face? A sense of daring to try new things, celebrate, play, see the humor in weird or tragic events. Avoid over eating, drinking, indulging. Good for play.
Nov. 19th Venus square Saturn. Lack of love? Needing to give more? Feeling selfish or impoverished. Need for long term commitment to loving oneself. Not good time to party unless its a happy one on one.
Nov 27th Venus oppose Uranus. Sudden need to be free, find creative outlets, play music or sing, break out not break down. Impulse to love creatively. Danger of slip and fall out, break off, need for patience with loved ones. Markets and weather jittery and roller coaster with emotions.
Late November 2020 USA Chart, Sagittarius Rising, has transit of Saturn conjunct USA Natal Pluto; possible indicating last of tough times due to the pandemic, stock market shake ups, earth changes storm or quake in October on into Nov, social and anti-social forces of misery and lack of humanity, charity, compassion for others. It could be also, a very cold beginning of winter. Saturn/Pluto makes one feel forced into things. Good for long term goals, not good for personal freedoms and play. Feelings overworked and no play make for depressive weather.
November 30th Full Moon Eclipse at 8 gemini, Sun Sagittarius with Washington DC chart having Uranus opposing Ascendent makes this and all last month back to full moon oct. 31st with Sun/Uranus opp., a month of sunspots, flares, quakes, shake ups and turnarounds and reversals, sudden partings and other sudden coming togethers, many quirky behaviorists, sudden quick or shocking behavior, along with breakthough genius activity and serious attempts to raise oneself and others up to the next higher level of activity. Early fixed and mutable signs , houses, planets most strongly affected to change, rearrange, quickly drop out or in, shift money and love perceptions and ways of behaving, upgrade or quick fade away energetic. Good for revelations and changing self. Trying to hard to change others may backfire.
December solstice jupiter saturn conjunct in Aquarius may very well be the beginning of the end of the pandemic and mass hysteria , anger, angst, and psychic civil unrest and anti social behaviour of last months and more. Many will start to feel more of the Aquarian ideals of brother and sisterly behaviour toward each other, a sense of one family humanity. Hopefully too stability in friendships, family, home, economics will begin.

Do we no longer have leaders or heroes of ethical merit? Inspirational characters, noble with virtue and spirit able to inspire us with a ‘One World Spirit’, a ‘university of Souls’ seeking to enlighten, free, heal, self and others? Sparking us all to work together for the good of all, all for the good of each? The most for the many seems a lost ideal now. We each must now learn to stand on our own for truth and freedom and the highest ideals. Each stand up for the most beautiful good things we can truly imagine with all our love and truth and right action. We must, by the way we live, prove there is a God; a God of truth and love and being a fair human being in love with the world starting here right under our feet and beyond our fence and walls. Higher Love must prevail with a higher truth that holds us all dear.

Whew, blessings,

Astrology for October 2020, AstroNews

September 28th, 2020

Astrology of the Times – the AstroNews! from robert of mayflower

Compassion without wisdom knowledge as well as common sense (day to day insight) is a gardening by night alone in need of sunshine. Heads and hearts need meet! ~robert of mayflower

End of Sept all through October the last of a very rough year astrologically!

Sept. 23 into 29th! Differing views and too much to chew when Mercury square Saturn, and Mercury oppose Mars. Grid lock and major control freaking or depressing natures on 25th when Moon triggers Pluto/Saturn/Mercury/Mars; followed by Sept 29th MARS RETROGRADE SQUARE SATURN. Makes for a tough week (or two) of rough news, extremes in weather and emotions, economics, dirty fighting, and getting a handle of what’s real and what’s fear and greed manipulations. Here too, a renewed need for law and order of a higher order of wisdom truth compassion with teeth; as well as practical peace of mind. Danger of the past overwhelming clarity of present tense as well as clear view of the future. Seems like many obsessed about what’s wrong with life, rather than living what’s right to do, duty and dharma. Need to prove God or Higher Self by the way we live, not just words, by the way we live the good, true, beautiful. Why does everything seem like its going backwards or retarded in growth. Why no higher truths and wisdom, higher callings of Love to arrest our divisive leanings? December’s Jupiter Saturn in Aquarius may well open the door for higher love and truth to prevail! Positive side of Saturn is yoga and meditation, more peaceful garden of soul. Higher octave of Mars is courage of virtue, mantra and virtuous actions brave for truth. Pluto is plutocrats and negative emotion but on higher side, its compassionate selfless support and power of ‘the mother’. Honest learning of what is duty dharma virtuous actions right for all, holy towards all, the most good for the many, sharing what one has to better, enlighten, uplift the spirit soul mind heart.

 “People’s concepts are terribly dependent upon the outer physical environment, and they must be dissolved by what spiritual science can stream out into humanity.” -Rudolf Steiner, ‘the Karma of Materialism’.

October 1st 5:05 pm est, Full Moon in Aries. A sense of peaking out with how far one can carry their impulse, desire, or fear. A sense of wanting a new beginning or fresh start.

“it is well to remember that in the last analysis, there is nothing else in the universe beside consciousness….thus being in various states of consciousness simultaneously is the only reality in the world.” ~rudolf steiner, from ‘The Fifth Gospel’

October 9th Mars retrograde square Pluto makes for the roughest times (influencing oct.7th thru 16th or 18th). At this time, a great need of patience, compassion, taking one’s time to find right solutions or way to go. Lots of accusations and plenty of dirty tricks, tough news/facts/events, and wrong behaviour make this time rough to get through. The weather won’t help things. Good time for renewing efforts, fixing up things, helping others if you can. Pluto makes for regeneration or degeneration, so lighten up on any habits you might have that weaken your good nature. In Jungian psychology, the ‘demon lover’ is all those things you do that are hindering or hurting you. Banishing wrong habits may be especially good at this time. Going to extremes at this time may prove ill in effect. This time period could also prove to be a very rough time for the stock markets.

October 16th New Moon in Libra. Sense of renewed efforts to find balance, fairness, co-creativity, harmony, and sureness in an ever changing wheel of fortune. Stillness mediation helps find sure ground to stand, walk, think and speak from. October 31st Full Moon on Halloween in Taurus with Sun oppose Uranus. Perhaps one of the most zany crazy Halloweens ever experienced in your life time is about to occur. (And nobody seems to be taking off their mask of fear and desire and freak out!). Extra crazy day of shake ups and changed plans. Dangerous few3 days here for taking risk, or over reacting, pushing too hard. Crazy sudden events or changes, storms or exchanges shift reality once again. Sudden fall (or sudden risings) of people and events. On the other hand at higher octave level, sudden realizations, truths and facts emerge to shift perceptions and directions. Fixed signs affected the most. Water signs and earth signs have opportunities to awaken and see clearer as to the way to go for happiness and prosperity. Fire signs need act out of harmony and creativity, and not anger or one up manship. Air signs need to not work alone but with others who agree or not, are creatively bound in sharing and caring for us all.

November 3rd Election day, Mercury goes direct from retrograde 12:50 pm making for complete zany craziness and multitudinously confusing information about ‘what is happening’. Many a new realization, a sudden shift in outcome or plans. Mercury in Libra wants fairness and co-equality in rights, service, surrender, heart and mind. Since neither candidate for President seems to have clear cut good aspects, and both have difficult astrology as well as few good aspects; this looks to be a most confusing if not disturbing election and year to come!

“One needs clairvoyant skills to discover spiritual scientific truths, but one doesn’t need them to live with these truths; for this one only needs a healthy understanding of what is presented.” -Rudolf Steiner, dec.7,1922

Hope this is helpful in your finding a sense of timing and planetary heavenly alignment, harmony tween heaven and earth events,
