“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest criticss and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Let the immortal depth of thy Soul lead thee, and open all thine eyes earnestly to the Above.” -Chaldean Oracles

Good time to make soup and friends, grains and make amends, greens and free one’s long term vision and goals by taking first steps.

Law and order vs love and play. Legal haggles and self assertion, resistance to change. Life may seem an endurance test at this time where its hard to see the fruits of one’s labor, nor happy futures. Need for discipline and long term view. A call for wisdom and deeper love.

Listen within yourself and look into the infinitude of Space and Time. there can be heard the songs of the Constellations, the voices of the Numbers, and the harmonies of the Spheres. ~Hermes

Ancient Egypt tells the same story of 3 Magi or Magician Astrologers, wise men following the Star to virgin ISIS mother of Horus Hermes known as the good Shepard who writes the Sermon on the Mount about virtue overcoming non virtue.

“From orgasmic experience or ecstatic communion of higher union with life, we evolve into love. From love we come to awareness or universal mind, Plato’s Nous, the Christos, Hermes, the Word. It is the thinking in all things harmonizing eventually into pure Prayer, Mantra, whisperings of deepest cave of kundalini in heart soul. After that there is Nothing, a pure listening, a pure Emptiness, a calm abiding Space equanimity, a nothing to stop you from being your Self and mediating, mediating, all the gifts God has bestowed upon you flowering to all, As Above So Below, on earth as it is in heaven. Mediation is the fourth way, the way of listening to who is listening, watching who is watching, experiencing directly what is in every heart wishing to flower. There is no other way to go, for we are love and truth and becoming, being.” ~robert of mayflower

Jan. 9th Day celebrating the ancient chanting of Dirge over the Slain Osiris by Isis and Nephthys.

~robert of mayflower

Never say anything bad about the dead, you may wake them up.
~Trebore Tau Bodhi

Jan 13th Jupiter square Neptune, first of 3. A tendency to fantasize, imagine, escape, space out, get too high or inebriated, or to neglect priorities and necessities. On the other hand, the higher octave, brings forth selfless helpfulness, compassion, higher unions and trysts of spiritual imagination, inspiration, and intuition. A sense of higher morality, ethics and virtue, impelling one to journey, quest, voyage, and aspire to high deeds, adventure, love. Jan. 13th celebrates the Arch Druids HU or Hesus, successor of Abaris.

Its easier to fool people than to convince them that why have been fooled. ~Mark Twain

Jan. 20 Sun enters Aquarius and Venus square Neptune. A sense of universal love and justice or the need for such. For some false ideals and hopes may crash or need more realistic view. Good for the arts but some over do the sweet and spin out of control or go unconscious. Distractor factors abound yet freedom calls.

Love always works miracles, its the anger, jealousy, attachment, block the magic.Truth is holding still long enough for the miracle of love to reappear. ~robert of mayflower

Jan. 21 Lunar Eclipse SuperMoon in Leo, Mars in Aries square Saturn in Capricorn. Hard work and honesty begins to pay off. A need to be straight forward and up front, not hide from oneself nor other with purpose and intent. Danger around cars or travel, tough weather in parts, harsh words may fail true purpose. Arguments and fighting in high and low places. Forceful intent may backfire. Good for honest clear work and thinking, long term commitment if not feeling stuck. Some fight the feeling of being locked in. Patience, compassion, in the taoist flow bending like grass in the wind may prove the better way than negative thinking and projecting.

The spiritual soul is immortal in each and everyone of us. To remember this is to have a bit of patience when all hell breaks loose. Karma and Reincarnation is a fact as sure as Compassion is an eventual inevitability one gives oneself and other. Some wait till the last moment before transition, but compassion and love is all that carries on to this and the next life. ~robert of mayflower

Jan. 22 Venus conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius. Reaching out to connect, expand, enjoy, encounter, play and love, lucky aspect for some. Good aspect for being sweet, forgiving, making amends, playfully engaging, expressing one’s highest love and ideals. Higher ethics abound. Good news day, people helping people.

All liars are afraid to totally love and trust. ~trebore tau bodhi

Jan 23 Mercury square Uranus. Surprising news adjusts the way to go. Moments of genius yet need to not act too hastily without all the facts. Haste makes waste, take care to read the fine print and watch quick words which may back fire or lead astray. Genius moments spark the day but oft miss the mark.

All Genius needs a lover, but not to come too quick before the magic is fully flushed out into manifestation. ~Aria Fairchild

Jan 24 Mercury enters Aquarius, bold innovative insights to dealing with old problems. Urge to free yet secure.

Real freedom is something awakens within the deepest heart and soul as a recognition and work in progress with every other heart and soul. ~robert of mayflower

Fun aspect for adventure and play, starting out on new journey or adventure, or furthering the cause. Day celebrating conversion of St.Paul in christian tradition.

Jan. 28th celebrates Zoroaster, Divine Teacher from about 1200 BC.

Jan. 29 Moon conjunct Jupiter. Happiness and joy here are contagious. Be the good, true, beautiful, loving one rather than looking outside oneself; shine it, be it, live it. Luck and love abound, for others stay calm and don’t be a fool. Too much laughing and joking or not enough humor leads to difficulties. Smile, its a move holds the sky of infinite possibilities.

The birth of happiness is dependent on the fertility and impregnation of greater truth heart accepted. Without this truth love goes astray, misconceives true aim and goal, conscious freedom, peace and harmony, for the world. ~robert of mayflower

Jan.31 Saturn sextile Neptune and Moon conjuncts (occults) Venus. Desire to balance love and work, work and play, spiritual and material concerns. Avoid overdoing or undergoing, find a middle way to work through day and week to come. Travel or future plans abound.

Give unto Caesar what is Caesars, to God what is God’s, to Higher Self be selflessly sure. ~Trebore Tau Bodhi

Feb. 1st Mars in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn. Difficult aspects often associated with good guys, bad guys; guns, violence, apprehending, anger, jealousy, negative emotions, lack of understanding and compassion, compulsive use of force. For some, need to push forward and attempt to open new doors. For others its time to forgive and let go, flow where life takes you and not fight the curve or wave. Good for inner and outer research, renewal, pulling out and starting something new, working to change self for the better rather than blaming others, shaming others, making guilty. No shame of blame, just learning. In the news though many accusations and secrets exposed. Crazy time when more wisdom needed to grow rather than force change.

Spiritually speaking; use no force other than the force of love and compassion, wisdom and truth, presence still a’witness to the divine true me and you. ~robert of mayflower

June 2019 Pluto trine USA Neptune, again Sept 2019
Deeply moving practical material and spiritual events, experiences, help all see we are one planet, one family of friends, co-creative with the future. Opportunities for world peace and peaceful resolutions appear now. This aspect very well may force many to grow up and face the coming Aquarian Age due in part dec. 2020 with Jupiter conjunct Saturn in Aquarius. Last Jup/Sat in Aquarius several hundred years ago when Gothic Cathedrals built, much philosophy and spiritual Grail Quest, the alchemy of Angels, Chartres and the blending of east and west, Plato and Aristotle thinking united ancient ‘pagan’ and modern free thought. Age of Consciousness Soul and new World Views emerged and newly emerging now. Some experience the resuscitation of the dead, but for others a renewed sense of love for all the earth and the rhythm of stars that animate us.

“The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
but i have promises to keep,
and miles to go before i sleep,
and miles to go before i sleep.
~Robert Frost

Reprint from November news ~ Aug 10 2019 progressed moon oppose natal Sun USA CHART! Full moon experience; many take it to the limit one more time.
Jupiter aspects in USA chart in Nov. 2019 favor democrats methinks. More on this later.

From November 2018 astronews much of which active now~
What UP!?! (Nov. 2018 below, here overview)
Venus oppose Uranus Halloween Oct. 31st brought reversal in downswing of stock markets with upswing, but will it last past elections? Ven/Uran also brought some relationship and business reversals, for some highly creative upswings in love life. Venus is love life, money, what you appreciate, goods and hugs; Uranus is sudden reversals of the trend, changes, surprises, upsets, and more. The third Venus/Uranus is at end of November. From early Sept. to end of November lots of changes, rearrangements, creative upbeats and raising of consciousness, or upsets, concerning love, luck, money, where and how we invest ourselves, time, and money. With Uranus also in hard aspect to lunar node, many a change in how we relate to others, or want to relate.
For many, new creative pursuits a need to renew or be through, upgrade or repave….with calling, work, relationships.
With elections early november coming up, lots of crazy antics and unpredictable results, though all the stars seem to favor left wing swing.
O Halloween time, Fall, Autumn, time of ArchAngel Michael and need to inwardly awaken anew. Halloween time, that mysterious celebration of death, disembodied souls roaming the street looking for a love light, a porch light, a re-entry, rebirth into that pumpkin large stomach with a spark of light inside, rebirth! Actually its the heart needs to rekindle and give birth to the Higher Consciousness of universal love and peace, truth and wit. All Souls day, an old Celtic Wisdom that All Souls would one day find peace and joy, happiness and heavenly state of mind/heart/consciousness. Now into winter solstice is a time of inner renewal, rebirth, rekindling of higher love and truth inside out. Zany good times to you.

The Venus/Uranus aspect also portends of possible big turnout of youth and women to vote, or for many to vote for universal good true beautiful and a more united United States of America. The USA chart, transit of Progressed Moon oppose Venus, and transit of Venus square Mercury also indicates women seriously taking the lead now into 2020 election. There will be much frustration and vexing struggle and striving for progress, but also much success and feelings of ‘belonging’ in a participation mystic, heart and soul spirit. (or so i hope perhaps). A larger turnout of women and youth to vote one would think with such aspects in sky
With transiting Mercury exactly conjunct Sagittarius Rising USA chart Ascendent. It will be a big deal day, an historical daytime of major event these coming weeks. Jupiter in late Scorpio but within range of conjunction in Sage Sagittarius of USA Rising Sign. May well indicate the democratic side of things empowered in congress (Saturn being conservative, Jupiter populist , people driven, democratic; most often). But on Election day, Jupiter not quite in Sagittarius yet so could be close or much contested as to voting methodology and who got cheated or what not. None-the-less, its a time for more people participating in the democratic process and wanting their voices heart.

With Ex President Obama having transit of Jupiter conjunct his Midheaven trine his Mercury and transit of Jupiter coming to trine his natal Sun, you almost wonder if he will run again!?! Perhaps as VP and then slide into President again down the road. Most likely not, but lots to ponder. With such aspects he will be happy, somewhat popular, and rich no matter what.

Avenettii, lawyer for Stormy Daniels, the stripper with lawsuit on President?!? Jupiter this last year on his Moon and now trine his natal midheaven gave him much popularity and for a spell, even still, stardom. With Neptune coming slowly to square his Mars , i don’t see him lasting into next presidential run.

Hillary Clinton now at Election ’18 time has Mercury trine her Mars/Pluto giving her a wee bit of power ‘say’ and ‘play’. With Mars coming to trine her Sun, she should be somewhat happy with election results and is considering her future play in politics. With coming transit of Uranus opposing her Sun at 2 degree Scorpio, she may well get thrown from both the political horse and her marriage. Hmmmm, we will see. For sure, Uranus demands big changes and upgrades, higher octave behaviour, or winds of fate blow one off course.

Elizabeth Warren’s astrology chart reveals transiting pluto oppose Midheaven square ascendent and heading for her Jupiter at bottom of her chart; I advise her not to run but be more a thinker behind the scenes. Don’t think she can win. Much research yet to do on all the contenders, will keep you posted.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York as seriously good aspects coming into 2020 elections making him a real possibility and at least, a positive influence on outcome. At 2020 election Jupiter transit trine his Mars/Saturn/Uranus in Taurus and in following year Jupiter conjunct his Venus/Mercury/Moon/Sun in Aquarius. At the moment nov. 2018, Mars in conjunct his Aquarius planets while trine his Jupiter giving him a positive and assertive glimpse of real possibility and luck in love and money.

With the President’s aspect at election of Saturn transit square Neptune, its tough to keep the dream alive. Saturn is heard reality and Neptune dreams and ideals. Saturn will tend to bring reality and work into view now. Nov 10 to 15th transit of Mars oppose Pres’s natal Mars, and Mars oppose his ascendent, he definitely feels attacked or over criticized and on the defense; as well as feeling need for counter rebuttal or debate. All this could indicate tough time at polls for republicans, as well as need for wisdom and patience in dealing with others. His transit of Uranus trine his ascendent for many months keeps giving the President new ideas and zest for what he perceives as creative change and progress. Uranus keeps one quick and creative with ever new ideas and expressions. Hmmm, we will see soon, eh?

Bernie Sanders Nov/Dec transit of Jupiter conjunct ascendent oppose uranus and trine his pluto with Mercury retrograde near ascendent gives Bernie strong voice in happenings, current events, and future trends; as well as powerful force urging him to run again for President. With transiting Pluto square his natal Venus coming in future, as well as transit of Neptune in future to oppose his natal Sun; I advise him to not run, and to be background counsel to who is. Whether such aspects indicate health problems down the road or what, not good aspects to run for president unless you really see this as your final fate and destiny, perhaps like Socrates near his end making final tribute!? Or is it such aspects truly break open his heart with renewed vigor, compassion, zest for what Bernie sees as the good, true, beautiful, the all american dream of happiness and honesty to boot. Pluto Venus is at best an attempt to redeem the fallen and help the poor in spirit. At its negative poll is a loss of popularity or personal or family intimate problems pulling him away from public life a bit. Most likely its compassion for downtrodden.

All this and lots more , I will go into more at Nov. 15th talk.
(that and december prediction talk available to purchase by sent email)

With USA chart about Nov. 11th transit of Mars conjunct Moon, much contesting and argument or debate about late election. Saturn oppose Jupiter in USA chart brings dissatisfaction and legal haggling at high levels. Also may indicate trouble with stock markets and/or financial matters. Or is it need for more inner controls of investments and markets. Many feel need for inside smart controls to keep up face of things, outer appearance of happiness. Sat/Jup here could be USA feels unhappy about things or hard work needed to fix few things. Whew! Got that right.…

End of November Jupiter conjunct Oprah Winfrey’s natal moon/jupiter may have her again thinking to run for President. Or it is she too is happy with election results and where things seem heading? Makes for much popularity and wealth such aspects. Perhaps her two cents worth millions to some.

Some have got richer inwardly and out. For some, hasn’t been the most fun times. With Jupiter entering Sagittarius November 8th for a year to come, things will soon cheer up and grow more sociable and enlivening, fun and more enlightening. Although another great astrologer makes many a good point that the USA has Scorpio Rising, i have been sticking to Sagittarius Rising as Dane Rudhyar suggested to me long ago when visiting my home for 11 day hang. If that’s true, Sagittarius Ascendent, than Jupiter will conjunct USA Rising Sign in December triggering many an opportunity to grow and learn, expand one’s horizons, travel and enrich oneself in multidimensional ways. The USA will come out of its funk and sad sack madness of blaming others for one’s own karma. Opportunities to grow, be happy, unite and resist negativity will abound. Jupiter is a happiness time. We shall soon find out, see and experience!

Coming soon, for a year, with Jupiter in Sagittarius, Leo and Aries and Sagittarius will get 3 good chances to improve their circumstances and self, grow and prosper inwardly and out. Mutable signs Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, and Sagittarius over flower and over flow with possibilities of happiness and success. Avoid doing too many thinks and thinks, dwindling your defined major purpose, aim, goal. Capricorns, Cancer, Libra, Aries need keep their nose/heart/mind to the grindstone of long term goals and rock solid practical ground ever deepening roots for wings to fly. Joys come and go, but keep the long term view in mind. For you Fixed signs (Scorpio/Taurus/Scorpio/Aquarius for next 7 years) and last degrees of cardinal signs (Libra/Aries/Capricorn/Cancer ( for next few months!) especially in for many changes, updating, learning curves, and sudden curves thrown at cha cha ever changing you ~ Get free, Get New, Renew, or get through it! Let it go or face up to it, be truth and love to know it. Fixed signs need make creative changes now that will serve long term happiness and security. Musical chairs you may feel, but the music will stop and you will need a good seat. Air signs will sing~~Libra, Aquarius, Gemini, need follow your heart and soul, your love and bliss; if you stay free and don’t lie to yourself, others can’t lie to you and you will find love, prosperity, and calling (work) working together in harmony and peace. Pisces/Virgo/Sagittarius/Gemini either have dreams coming true, or dreams melting like left out ice cream on hot sidewalk. Need for practical ground and clearness, really be clear what you want or don’t want; otherwise be patient.
