“Whether one says that man gazed upward to his higher self, which he must come to resemble ever more closely, or alternatively that he looks up to his angel as to a high ideal, is from a spiritual point of view exactly the same.”
~Rudolf Steiner

Dec.1st Mercury goes into secretive and often plotting Scorpio, till dec. 12th. Weird entanglements legally, emotionally, secret things afraid public will learn, gossip, negative thinking. Need for clear headed high flying eagle sense, not secret crabs and stinging tales with stinging tails. And yes, Scorpio is the Phoenix that burns in its own desire to resurrect, higher level hopefully, with renewed level of inner spiritual consciousness after the purging. For some a deepening, a purification, a re-tune to Higher Self, the Virtue God within and without. Research and renewal or confusion and losing of integrity.

Dec. 2nd Sun squares Mars and Venus enters passionate and secret love side of things, Scorpio. With Moon pop Uranus and conjunct Venus on 3rd, subliminal intensity and heat , or agitation depending on how you swing the door of your mind.

“Life is built up by the sacrifice of the individual to the whole, Each cell in the living body must sacrifice itself to the perfection of the whole: when it is otherwise, disease and death enforce the lesson.”
~H.P. Blavatsky, Collected Writings vol. 8.

Dec. 5th Sun in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces. Next 3 days in particular, but influencing the whole month, a more spiritual or mystical inclination. Neptune is the great mother, but sometimes over done. Its mothering and nourishing but can spoil or betray positive future results due to wrong views, dishonesty, misinformation, fake news or old stories outworn. Its being haunted by the past and future being cheated out of the present. Its bewitching spells and mystical spiritual adventures, religious or higher love experience too. Its up to each of us what we call forth, invoke, perceive and conceive. Here the wish or desire precedes or creates the thought precipitating event. Be careful what you wish for. Many get lost in wrong turns or lost right directions. Medications or wrong use of drugs may backfire or flirt with chaos.Keep your head clear and avoid major decisions till Mercury goes direct from retrograde on 6th.
“Its impolite to be critical at a funeral, and we’re all at a funeral until one invokes their own Higher Self who out of virtue and noble calling re-invokes the World Spirit, the Angel in every heart, the higher Truth holds us all to eternally Love because that’s what we are, Love and friendship to all life, sun stone star water earth air, every tree.” ~Trebore Tau Bodhi of Mayflower OM
Be careful where you fling your arrows, you might hit yourself, or other by accident or bad karma. For some amazing truths emerge from jumbled facts. Messages from the other side, magical mystical (or confusing dreams) For others, delusions illusions scams and big hams. Next three days crazy with misfortune, misinformation, wrong identity, falsification, lost in space or sea or oceans of infinity. Although colorful, some may lose themselves or enter the spiritual world a bit too much, eerie cross overs, ufo and virgin mary sightings, stranger than fact realities, dangerous travel or drugs, beware of over sensitivity and bad or wrong meds. Good time for art or music but otherworldly affairs mingle with the kris kringle and jingle of the bells. All these Neptune aspects 5th to 7th portend of danger of Mary Jane without the right Mayflower Bookshop books, maps to the astral and spiritual planes as Tim Leary once said upon visiting. Alan Ginsberg said Mayflower Bookshop should be a football field big. All Conspiracy books 10% or more off these next 4 days to celebrate wishing to transcend. Rudolf Steiner collected works 20% off sale into saturday/sunday coming.

Dec 6th marijuana legal in Michigan. As Tim Leary stated at Mayflower Bookshop long ago, When you get ‘high’, one need these books here at the Mayflower. These books are the maps to the astral and spiritual planes! Its so important! May be the missing element folks, the inner spiritual maps!

Also dec. 6th, Mercury goes Direct at 4:22 pm, and New Moon in Sagittarius 2:20 am. Many a feeling and thought starts to find right lodging, right aim, forward direction, but give it a few days to really get it right before too strong an action. By dec. 10th to be sure, you will know.

”When we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember that virtue is not hereditary.’’
-Thomas Paine, great inspiration for USA duriing Revolutionary War

Dec. 7th New Moon in Sagittarius, Many new projects and plans in the works, putting one’s best foot forward with a most positive spirit works miracles now for many. Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces is wild card for next few weeks into full moon on December 22, Love is in the air and deeper feelings. Special time to forgive and let live, wondrous deeds of love and bravado, sensuous affairs, idealistic voyages and travels. Such aspect portends of more mad science replacing humans with robots, making humans into machines (obey orders) and animals (pleasure all desires/fears, appetite) rather than nourish and awaken our angels, virtues, or ‘gods in the becoming’ as Osiris, Zoroaster, Buddha, Hermes, or Jesus the Christ taught. Its escapism at best, materialistic hardening of the heart of all good true beautiful at worst. Its reaching outwards to discover another earth in outer space but discovering in wisdom this earth we are on. Its pollution of anything if it brings profit. Its going off in projects, projections, dreams and far reaching plans without awareness of what’s right under your feet and in front of you. But also its a super psychic and super sensual and super sensitive time when every thing seems bigger and hungrier to eat or be eaten. It can be a mystic magically scientific and virtuous quest for what nourishes us all. Or is it a blurr of feeling moody and lost, down and out, or just high addicted on meds and electronics. It is up to each of us to reach for the highest virtue and deepen our deeps of stillness still here to learn, flower, grow, know. Who am I, what is the world, how can i awaken higher consciousness, deeper root, heart mind?!? Hey, it could be the legalized smoke affecting strong mood swings and imaginations?! Get The Secret Teachings of All Ages book at Mayflower and enwize yr Wizard Genius now! Avoid get rich quick schemes. Seems my prediction of Bitcoin eventually dropping out is on way? Neptune aspects always danger of unconsciousness, food poisoning or fears, losing stuff, misplacing stuff. Seems the shadow of past Mercury retrograde in effect. For some its finding or rediscovering what was once lost.

“Every being entering into the ineffable sanctuary of its own nature finds there a symbol of the Father of all.” -Proclus

Dec. 9 Moon occults Saturn and Pluto. Is it cold or cold shoulder or heavy right wing weights and balances, depression, overload, need to rest up and renew not burn the candle down too soon. Need for regularity, not over doing or going to extremes, sticking to the straight and narrow here, a conservative bent, some to the breaking point.

Dec 11 Brexit Vote uk chart looking rough. UK has tough aspects. With Saturn transit conjunct their Sun/Nadir opposing their midheaven, need to lay long term foundation for future, not seek immediate results, Da da da. Pluto transit just squared their moon, housing prices and pound down, drugs and violence up, infighting and back stabbing. Need to re-invoke compassion for self and others. Saturn in yoga meditation and long term planning at higher level, Pluto love for land and sea at higher level. With Uranus in coming few years 2022-23 conjunct UK Mars, may take till then and after to arouse right new leadership and direction. Here haste makes waste and anger/hate creates lots of bad karma. Positive side of such aspect is new songs and culture, higher love for truth and justice, arts and legal rights for all, just economics. Hmmm, where’s Van Morrison, Beatlesque, Stones rather than just being stoned, when ya need em? Where the brave knights of honor, courage, truth and valor? Jupiter transit trine UK Jupiter just past, but coming to conjunct Mercury (Mind for truth, good), and trine to UK Saturn come next spring summer and in 2020 Jupiter conjoining UK Sun will surely help loads to bring renewal and social harmony, creative peace.

Dec. 12 Mercury enters Sage Sagittarius to give us futuristic and uplifting mood mind spirit of joy and good will? Yes! Moon in Aquarius gives sense of belonging to greater community of heart soul universal love truth. Avoid over shooting self and attempting too much too fast. Don’t promise what you can’t come through on. Yet this very positive aspect of mind and feelings lasting into January. Bright minded spirits for most.

“Behold now, O Brethren, I exhort you, saying: All component things are subject to decay and death, but Truth will remain forever. Work out your salvation with diligence.”
— Buddha’s Last Words

Dec. 14 Moon conjunct Neptune , conjunct Mars. Avoid wasteful talk and ego aggression. Good time to beautify and mystify yourself with selflessness listening to others hearts speak behind their worlds of words.

“He who makes, unmakes; he who grasps, lets go. That is why the self controlled man by Inner Life can make and by inner Life unmake, b Inner Life grasp and by Inner Life let go.”
-Tao Teh King

Dec. 15th or so, into Full Moon Dec. 22nd. Jupiter transit conjuncts USA Rising Sign (Sagittarius) and opposes USA Uranus. Many happy surprises, sudden agreements, harmonious companions and negotiations, trade agreements and peace making efforts abound with

“Never suffer sleep to close thine eyelids, after retiring for the night, until thou hast examined all thine actions of the day.” ~Pythagoras

Dec. 17 Mars Pisces sextile Pluto in Capricorn. Ideal urge to follow one’s dream and escape sinkholes of repeat performance and negative emotions. Be the love you want to see, believe in the magic no other can be, breathe it all in to the the stillness eternally listening to you in your own heart. Share, care, dare to make things better. Such aspect often is power plays and strategic moves in politics, money, holdings, sex. Also inescapable inevitabilities start to sink in and slowly awaken way to go for sure footing and grounding. Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio most affected. Kind of a good bye, good guy, bad fly, bad guy aspect of dualistic polarity if not patiently wise and taoist together, flowing.

“Expand thyself into the Immeasurable Greatness, passing beyond body and, transcending time, enter the Eternal.”
~Thrice Greatest Hermes (Thoth)

Dec. 20 Sun trine Uranus moon in Gemini. Sense of breakthrough insights and feeling flow, future looks bright in melting snow.

“Nevertheless the spirit alone is real, the form is an illusion. Love can exist without form, but no form can exist without love. Its is pure Spirit.”
-H.P.Blavatsky, author of The Secret Doctrine Steiner studied.

Dec 21 Venus trine Neptune, Mercury conjunct Jupiter, Sun enters Capricorn, Moon in Gemini, Full Moon Night this night. Wow! Winter Solstice chart for Washington DC reveals Sun/Saturn oppose ascendent indicating roadblocks and problems with authority figures, extremes in weather, slow response from others. Mercury conjunct Jupiter portends lots of new ideas and projects in coming months. Mars/Midheaven/Neptune indicates many plans and projects very idealistic, spacey, oceanic, vast, very chancy and risky, misguided intentions, more talk than action. Yet, some shoot for the moon or mars and manage in time to get there. Dangerous times for some, for others time to root and renew, plan and take a stand for long term secure.

“Never did eye see the sun unless it had become sunlike, and never can soul see Beauty, unless itself be beautiful.”
~Plotinus

Dec. 22 Full Moon Day 12:49 pm 0Cancer, heck of a year coming with Dec. 21st Solstice right on this Full Moon. This will be great year for positive change for most. Portends intense peak experience year for most of us. A year of emphasis on reimagining home, family, friends, food, sacred space.

“My Light is hidden under all that shines, saith the All Knowing Lord.” ~Zoroaster

Dec 24 Mercury square Neptune. Deceptive idealism may fray proper thoughts and attire. Lies or hiding or crying or falsely dreaming and denying may plague the eve. Avoid over indulging or fading orgasmic moments. Positively its putting a good face on a difficult situation. Past and future tend to blur present moments and places/spaces. Distorted views, wrong views or information, imaginary projections, false news, lies, cheats, all possible now. Yet, such aspect good for the arts, music, poetics, inspirational heart mind, idealistic conceptions, and more! Each of us invokes and is co-creative with all astrological aspects, so stay awake, dream true, be you both star and earth practical, heart soul here now forever.

“When the bird of the heart begins to sing, too often will reason stop up her ears.”
– Hans Christian Anderson

“Live through deeds of love, and let others live with tolerance for their unique intentions.”
~Rudolf Steiner

Dec. 31 Mars enters Aries. New sense of aggressive forward motion? Too much talk, no action? Quacky quick moving action but no thought or smarts for tomorrow? Such aspect here can make some people over energized and enthusiastic, aggressive and feisty. Take care to avoid impatience, over aggressive exuberance, immature behavior, quarrels, youthful folly, anger or crazy chaotic behaviour. Such aspect on positive note bravery to fight for right, love, truth, but if drunk or too high, look out.

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

Jan 2nd Sun conjunct Saturn. Cold wake up call that it may take work to manifest all dreamed last month. Coming down to earth, practical with work at hand and future plans. Bringing light to difficult situations or having to face difficulties with right light of thinking. Necessity to make strong decision for or against something. Good for rest, meditation, yoga, contractions to renew and catch up.

“Self-love must become love of all. Then evil will be overcome.”
~R.S.

Jan 5th New Mooon Eclipse in cap conjunct saturn may indicate pretty cold and/ tough hard times for some this coming month. For others its nose to the grindstone and a deeper appreciation for lasting friends, qualities, virtues, wisdom books, practicality, grounding, long view in mind, sincere warmth of the heart. 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. Good time to read Theosophy, Osho, Steiner, Manly Hall, NeoPlatonists, Tibetan Buddhism, and my book ‘Astrological Aspects, the Art’.

Virtue, heart intelligence, compassionate wisdom, co-creativity with all the world, peace of mind, this is being rich ~ friendship with all life. Light and Love to you! ~robert of mayflower

O could we always live and love,
And always be sincere,
I would not wish for heaven above,
My heaven would be here.

Though many countries I have seen,
And more may chance to see,
My Little Corner of the World
Is half the world to me;

The other half, as you may guess,
America contains;
And thus, between them, I possess

The whole world for my pains.
I’m then contented with my lot,
I can no happier be;
For neither world I’m sure has got
So rich a man as me.

Then send no fiery chariot down
To take me off from hence,
But leave me on my heavenly ground –
This prayer is Common-sense.

Let others choose another plan,
I mean no fault to find;
The true theology of man
Is happiness of mind.
~thomas paine,
American Great Patriot of Revolutionary War time

In a chariot of light from the regions of day,
The Goddess of Liberty came;
Ten thousand celestials directed the way
And hither conducted the dame.
A fair budding branch from the gardens above,
Where millions with millions agree,
She brought in her hand as a pledge of her love,
And the plant she named Liberty Tree.
The celestial exotic struck deep in the ground,
Like a native it flourished and bore;
The fame of its fruit drew the nations around,
To seek out this peaceable shore.
Unmindful of names or distinction they came,
For freemen like brothers agree;
With one spirit endued, they one friendship pursued,
And their temple was Liberty Tree.
Beneath this fair tree, like the patriarchs of old,
Their bread in contentment they ate,
Unvexed with the troubles of silver and gold,
The cares of the grand and the great.
With timber and tar they Old England supplied,
And supported her power on the sea;
Her battles they fought, without getting a groat,
For the honor of Liberty Tree.
But hear, O ye swains, ’tis a tale most profane,
How all the tyrannical powers,
Kings, Commons, and Lords, are uniting amain
To cut down this guardian of ours;
From the east to the west blow the trumpet to arms
Through the land let the sound of it flee,
Let the far and the near, all unite with a cheer,
In defense of our Liberty Tree. ~Thomas Paine

We have it in our power to begin the world over again. T.Paine

May all of us find enlightenment, awakened hearts and minds
co-creative with the whole of our life and world.

“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself:
but each of us can work to change a small portion of events,
and in the total, of all those acts will be written
the history of this generation.” ~robert kennedy

Perhaps wars in world would stop if like in ‘Lysistrata’, an old Greek Aristophanes play, the women get together and cut off sexual privileges of men as well as get old women to control and cut off money for war. The woman leader here, Lysistrata, calls it a “Reconciliation for Peace”. In the play, it works. Hmmmm.

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.
More to come, blessings of love and truth, joy and wit,
robert of mayflower (mayflowerbookshop.com)

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.

All this and lots more , I will go into more at Nov. 15th talk.
More to come, blessings of love and truth, joy and wit,

Robert’s News and Views, Astrological and Spiritual insights
for November 2018 on—-

Nov. 6th Uranus retrograde enters Aries making feisty heady debate, assertiveness, argument, flurry of a hurry to advance, fix, change, rearrange, win and run over. Danger of loose tongues and guns. Positiveness is bravery, first strike lucky. Those who didn’t take important new step in their life last year, or important change in self and direction, now fight to hang or or change quick.

Nov. 7th New Moon 15 Scorpio makes for couple weeks with hint of lust, secrecy, passion, close encounters, intimacy, with strong feelings of attraction or need to part.

Nov. 8th Jupiter enters Sagittarius with Moon conjunct Jupiter triggers a year of expansive knowledge, travel, higher educations, and yes……books make a comeback sort of. Perceptions and dreams come into view of next few years, what’s to come or what is possible.

Nov. 9th Venus in Libra trines Mars in Aquarius making for many a happy agreement, coming together, mental mind melt, mutually beneficial productions and workings. Sense of positiveness about the future, relations, biz. Good time to make connections and hook up with right good true.

Nov. 12 Moon occults or eclipses (conjunct) Pluto in Capricorn influencing next few weeks. In parts, loss, separations, death, feelings of endings new beginnings, need to clean something up, sense of fatality. Sense of regeneration or degeneration depending on other aspects in the individual astrology chart. Need to rid oneself of wrong habits or negative attitudes. Pull inner weeds, let others be.

Nov. 15 Mars enters Pisces makes for passive aggressive and aggressive passive individuals and actions/reactions. One person seems open fluidic and flowing with the agenda outwardly but inwardly blocks or holds up, controls, or lazy as to outcome. Another is assertive and aggressive outwardly but inwardly lazy or passive or avoiding response and responsibility. Outer passive, inwardly aggressive. Those passive get more aggressive, those aggressive lay back and flow more. A sense of the rug pulled out from under one’s feet for some. Some renew ideals and zest for the great Grail Quest of what is best for all, what nourishes the wholeness in each and all.

Nov. 16 Venus in Libra goes direct making for need to work with others, need for partnering, a more willingness to flow, bend, be co-creative, work with others. Mercury in Sagittarius goes retrograde backing up into Scorpio making for many a back step, a reversal, a re-think, and need for fix up. For some far reaching or big expansive plans to be readjusted, reconfigured, rethought out, some even dropped. For some, a return to something unfinished or needing more love and attention.

Nov. 19 Mars in Pisces square Jupiter in Sagittarius makes for reaching out far to make dreams come true. Danger of following pipe dreams or spacing out with diffuse varied nebulous projections. Lots of energy for success if one’s focus sticks to the point and goals in mind. Tendency to do too much and do no one good. Great social fun aspect though for sure. The legalized smoke dream bit too big perhaps. Getting lost, some get found.

Nov. 20 Moon conjunct retrograde Uranus making for honing and boning in on facts, sudden shifts and new realizations of facts, even higher truths. A slight redirecting of course, an attempt to lift oneself to the higher octave. Today’s Robert Kennedy’s Birthday who i met and once shook hands, exchanging a few words and big auras
!
“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself:
but each of us can work to change a small portion of events,
and in the total, of all those acts will be written
the history of this generation.” ~robert kennedy

Nov. 22 Sun enters Sagittarius to conjunct Jupiter on 26th. What a wonderful time for many of us!!! Also Full Moon Night!
A very expansive Thanksgiving Day where one’s Higher Self needs tame and inspire the little one, the lower self, the shadow desire or fear, to behave and come join the higher resonance and song joyfully participating in the sufferings and woes, the struggles and striving of self and other in this crazy cool world. A sense of group dynamic and giving thanks for continued opportunity to realize truth and love and freedom and responsibility to self, land, and other. Take care not to overdo, go over the top, ego inflation, or feelings that you just can’t stop. Good time to listen to everyone’s heart and quit the debate, love and not hate.

Nov 24 Full Moon 1 degree Gemini makes for few weeks of intense communications and plans for the future. Much talk, little action? Good time for making connections and asking for good traction to progress. Talk without action to back it up is like catching all the leaves of a tree when they fall in the fall. Rise up, take heart, listen twice as much as you speak, free the universal love you seek from within yourself.

Nov. 24th Neptune goes direct from retrograde at 14 Pisces. Some fake dreams and fake news and lame plans get dropped and new dreams and new realities and facts come into play in coming days and months. Now is the time to quit taking things personal, quit blaming others, time to awaken from dreaming and hoping, and time to come to realize your own inner deep self whispers in the heart still listening. Time to be the truth and love you seek in others. Now is the time to live the dream and make your way. Here the end doesn’t not justify the means. Here the way to go is to live the life to know the truth…, the means and way is the end, and many a new beginning if need be. Neptune direct here may take few weeks or months to reconfigure what just happened last several months or so. Invoke the artist in you to record dreams, keep journal of creative ideas and happenings, make songs, play music, beautify everything, see the beautiful in everything, dream true the pure land in us all.

Nov. 26th Sun conjunct Jupiter joyous and expansive exuberant in Sagittarius. Also retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius square Mars in Pisces. Temptation to throw away mental worries and go play. Avoid arguments and loose talk going nowhere. Good time to expand one’s mind with new possibilities. Take care to avoid fights and arguments going nowhere. If you have such a good case, get third party in on it. Stay objective. Pick contests worth contesting. Go for spiritual wisdom and enlightenment first, than fight for little things. Merc/Mars here feels edgy and needs good exercise and learning anew, otherwise feisty and trigger happy, loose words and failed attempts to force rather than inspire, educate, heal, virtue invoke.

Nov. 27 Sun conjunct retro Mercury and Mercury conjunct Jupiter Burning insights light new ways of approaching problems. For some, new problems present themselves needing immediate attention. Light of spirit overshadows and inspires thinking. Avoid over doing or wasting resources. For some, hard to define limits of growth. If unsure, wait. If you now what you’re doing, go for it. Good for reading, writing, making connections, blessing and being blessed. If new facts burn you or irritate, go slow on acting or reacting. This could be good aspect for making amends and fixing mistakes, but don’t fall back into old patterns and old mistakes.

Nov. 30 Venus in Libra oppose retrograde Uranus in Aries makes for strange twists and turns in love life. Unexpected facts tempt overreacting or hasty actions/reactions. Strong urge to free or be free. Sudden arousal of the creative or love urge, though hasty quick moves one may regret or may backfire. Often sudden, but short lived connections. Nice for artsy social crafting novel ad lib creative times.

Dec. 2 Sun square Mars makes for news requiring immediate action, but anger or hasty actions or reactions can destroy one’s good karma here. Mars often is gun stuff and aggressive over assertive forceful dumb. Yet at times, heroes show up here for good and virtuous deeds, bravo times. Cocky don’t work here, or mouthing off. Good time to make good karma helping others less fortunate. Time for patience and compassion for those stressed or going to extremes to find better luck and happiness.

Dec 5 Sun square Neptune makes for need to live one’s life according to one’s higher truths, higher self. Little and big lies abound. Yet high ideals also appear inspiring some to good deeds. Avoid inflation and false inflationary ideas and expressions. For some, an ability to see through the fog and propaganda and deceit. For others, secret agendas made from fear and weird wants and unfulfilling desires.

Dec. 6 Mercury goes direct at 27 Scorpio bring easier time in coming weeks to get facts right, correct.

Dec. 7th full moon with Mars conjunct Neptune makes for magical mystical times around this date, higher communion and ‘at-one-ment’. For others a false road or path or experience of deceit, false pretense and promises, escapism, or laziness. All aspects astrological have a higher and lower octave. Here wanting to escape vs melt into and conjoin, wanting art and music or feeling alone and adrift.

ps
the Following is
Astrology (from sept 1 to 4th previous posts on stock markets and more)
End of Sept. into Oct. Pluto midpoints Jupiter/Neptune as Pluto close to midpoint of Jupiter/Uranus and Neptune/Pluto. Also first days of October, Saturn transit opposes USA Venus possibly indicating major pull back or drop in the markets, death of some rich or famous politician, movie star, celebrity? Or sense of ending and new beginning for some. Fall from grace for some; loss of name, fame, money, love, respect. Falling out of love with past. Some dig into transformative alchemical renewal and healing or new start. Endings and new beginnings abound. Good time to retreat or go in deeper in research, renewal, cleaning, ridding of unneeded items, cleaning and fixing up. Early November Saturn oppose USA Jupiter, also Saturn opposing USA Sun next year makes for a number of months of serious need to find sure footing, predictable economics not up and down in extremes ever changing. Need for sound reliable security and control in an ever expanding and contracting, up and down swirling world. Sadness in high places. Need for long term planning, not hot shot maneuvering. A search for deeper meaning and purpose. Financial and World Market concerns for securing long term begin now and may last for few years.

Oct. 22 2018 and Jan 6 2019 Neptune transit conjunct USA Progressed Sun; for some confusion and stuck in weird weather, weird food, fake circumstance and unreal circumstances, escapism or illness. Good time to take it easy and avoid gamble or stress or investing in pipe dreams and false futures. Good for art, music, mystics, far future planning. Uranus retrograde into dec./jan on square to USA natal Pluto will continue stress and pressures to change old power structures into something more intelligent, creative, and freeing for all.

Nov. 16th Venus direct from retrograde since Oct. 5th, and on same day Nov. 16th Mercury in Sage Sagittarius at 13 degrees goes retrograde. All ahead love but take care not to slip on the tongue.

Nov. 24th Neptune goes direct, such aspect starts to wake many from false dreams and projections held onto for last year or more. Dreams come true start to appear in next months for some. Others wake up to better ground sure and facts that hold.

Nov 26 Sun conjunct Jupiter happiness overflows and flowers smile from the heart. Good day to share, reach out and connect or reconnect. Good day for friendships and prosperity, play, productivity. Avoid extremes or foolhardy gambling or over indulgence.

Nov 29 2018 and feb 19 2019 in USA Chart, transit of Uranus conjunction Progressed Venus, unpredictable Love life. For some separation, for others quick uniting and coming together. Many seek fun and excitement over security and routine at this time. Tendency to rediscover roots and wings of love. Rewriting the book of love. Sudden shifts in likes and dislikes. Crazy hollywood, music, and entertainment news. Arts and crafts, music, love, higher intelligence thrives on such aspects. New cultural artistic fashion trends. New feel for life.

Dec.6th Mercury direct, mind clears up for right action and thoughts to carry us through holidays into new year.

Dec 7th new moon 15 sagittarius with Mars conjunct Neptune that day (influencing next few days or month even) leads to a few weeks of crazy talk from everyone, loose tongues and loose cannons, danger of food poisoning in parts, or ecological mess. Mars/Nep also can bring a mystifying loss of direction, discipline, and diet. On the positive side for those attuned, new truths and revelations spark new journeys and travel, future plans. Mars Neptune is very active imagination that may need practical direction. Truth is so important at this time.

Dec. 9th Moon occults Saturn and Pluto making for weird day of serious reckoning with bottom lines and end of the line projectories. Extremes in weather and/or emotions, tendency to be too serious and scary, controlling, severe. Good day to catch up to past rather than push futures.

December 15th Jupiter transit conjunction to natal USA Sagittarius Rising Sign. Postitive aspect for education, travel, prosperity, feeling happiness in general, positive voices for present into future. New sense of knowing. An ‘All Ahead, Go!’ sense of things. Lucky in love and money and friendships, connections.

Dec. 22 Full Moon in Cancer. Good time to take stock in home and heart, friends/family/togetherness, inner spirit callings.

Dec. 24 Mercury square Neptune, loss of good judgement? or intuitive impulse buying?

January 1, 2019, transiting North Node oppose Pluto ` Intense experiences New Year’s Eve into New Year Day powerfully pushing one to strongly change one’s ways or get side tracked or pushed out in the difficulties and negative emotions. Good time to confess your love and wish for connection, not disconnect. Possible difficulties trusting, sharing, caring, believing in. Need to re-invest, or is it wanting to not invest in some one or something any more. Jealousy and negative emotions can over ride clear thinking. Need to purify or rid oneself of inner and outer toxic environments. This intense time of emotions and weather weirdly pushes us into Jan. 4th when Jupiter transit semi squares Pluto in USA Chart adding tensions to change or be changed by outer circumstances beyond one’s control or mind set. For some, power alliances arise. For some, forcing one’s own way on others brings negative and ill effect. Saturn semi square USA moon on jan 5th adds to the depressive cold mood. Could be severe weather and tough politics or social mood. Or do all these aspects indicate a great Spirit for change and progress, purifying and again trying to raise one’s consciousness to the virtues taught by every great religion throughout all time? The eclipse of Sun on Jan. 5th brings a sense of no going back, only going forward. Saturn transit oppose USA Sun Jan. 17th 2019 gives extremes in weather (cold cold cold in parts) and a sense that a lot has to change to bring about better state of affairs. 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. Happiness when alone.

June 2019 Pluto trine USA Neptune, again Sept 2019
Deeply moving spiritual events and experiences help all see we are one planet, one family of friends. 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.
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.

Love and the New York Stock Exchange, Astrology for October 2018

Tuesday, October 16th, 2018
“Not that any true adept would say aught against the naturalness and sacredness of pure sexual relationships; but that, to become an adept one must expand the finite into the Infinite, the personal into the Universal, man into Parabrahm- if one so choose to designate that Thing Unspeakable.”   -H.P.Blavatsky, Collected Writings volume 4, pg. 342
 Love and the New York Stock Exchange astrology chart May 17, 1792; crazy aspects coming?! With transiting Pluto squaring NYSE natal Moon, transiting Mars opposing NYSE natal Uranus into next monday then on to November Election to conjunct NYSE Pluto~~~~~~ Stock Market tumbles and falls into troubling times with strong restructuring, need of fixing fault lines and ways of cheating? Is it legalized gambling or fixed affair? A major event or scandal scars trust and necessitates change or structure or rules of operation? Pluto can indicate need to regenerate pureness. Temporary fall in certain stocks? Or do plutocrats and corporate rulership dictate powerfully controlled changes of leadership and day to day rules? Uranus retrograde into midterm elections and into new year gives conflicting messages. Uranus near conjunct NYSE Saturn and oppose NYSE Neptune gives air of much progressive change and risk taking, surprises, upsets, sudden turn arounds, vicissitudes and reversals. Yea, Yea; sounds like your love life? Perhaps.
Look to Oct. 18th to 31st for the craziest times of the month. Oct 19th,23rd, 24th, 25th, ands 31st the most intense for
Love Drama, sudden changes of likes and dislikes, on and off and on and off again relations in love and business; zany and unpredictable relations, sudden arousal or sudden turn off. World events and storms in politics, economics, weather make for electrically charged super magnetic associations and love life. Those who suffer with wrong use of drugs, meds, addictive emotions, or negativity, attachment, obsessions, fixations, anger, jealousy, etc; LOOK OUT, troubled times ahead. Those who are creative, spiritually minded, in need of freedom, more creativity, amour and adventure, this may be your time. Sudden joyful meetings and a comings together of higher minded heart sparked souls! For others, sudden partings and jolting truths forcing change. Sudden endings and new beginnings. Astrological aspects have a higher and lower resonance, each individual out of freedom attunes to. The idea is to resonate to higher, rather than lower octave of experience. Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius, Leo signs, planets, houses, most strongly affected. Pisces, Capricorn, Virgo, and Cancer signs/planets/houses need to surrender to higher voice of conscience and not take things too personally, letting go of mischief makers and repeat offenders. Oct. 26th and Oct. 29th best days to make positive step forward with right facts and footing. While some here learn to burn pure in love and truth, others burn to learn hard lessons of attachment, fear, lack of universal love and truth.
Thus the last half of October is looking zany crazy love stormy astral karma wintery, yet for some highly charged creative and zesty etheric positively bouncy and luscious with inner springs.

“No one is free who has not obtained the empire of himself.” – Demophilus the Pythagorean

UK, Britain England under the gun, or knife, with rough extreme weather, politics, economy, and miserable complaint as Pluto for the second time in retrograde now opposes UK natal MOON! Difficult Mars aspects add to the picture making for strong words and actions needing wisdom’s compassion and long term view as things there continue to heat up crazily.

These days with Eclipses we got heat and mean posturing, fires out west, in the east flooding, along with mars/uranus mercury mars retrograde making crazy explosive situations, sudden exposing or shocking revelations and realizations, ie. expose’s in church and state, famous and infamous, 3-D gun problems, more expensive toilet paper, less expensive Bitcoin, political collusion or collision, russia probe or russian grown politics? Sudden rise or fall for many in both ego, money, power, fame. Quickening times, ever changing events, who’s about to slip slips, falls, others suddenly rise to new position and height. Many experiencing a turning point in affairs. Many suffer from things gone to extremes or out of balance. Dangerous time to use force or force oneself and projections on others.
Seems lots of things and events at a breaking point, a break down, or is it a ‘break through’, a sudden rising to new highs and depths of awareness, reality, truth and love.

Intense times eve of August 1st with Mars square Uranus in sky, taking us right into August 11th Solar Eclipse; and on to August 19th Mercury retrograde going direct This timing should tell many a story as to what is really happening and what isn’t. Many fall apart, others suddenly come together! Some are stuck with highly idealistic fantasy Neptune dreaming the impossible dream For still others its waking up from illusion/delusion. Are you driving or being driven? You in control or someone else piloting or pirating the ship. False Inflation is followed by deflation for some. All depends if you have good aspects to these transits. See your natal chart. Cancer and Pisces planets lucky and dreamy, Taurus and Virgo locking into long term security.
Signs and Planets in fixed signs of Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius, Leo feel this the most stress and energy for strong change/transformation/progress. We all have these signs somewhere in our chart. (see yr personal chart with all the planets and houses!) That is why i give higher and lower octave possibilities and event. Depends on your own natal chart how these transits either create ‘good or challenging influences and aspect.
Some Aspects in sky tough, if hitting your personal points, have patience and avoid negative spats. Remember, we are after lasting happiness, truth and love for all. Onwards then.
Some deepen with Pluto realization it may take some time to fix, heal, transform. Without compassion and a sense that everyone of us has a God Spark, a potential ultimate flowering of truth and love, grace, compassion, wit; there is no end to the torture of materialistic only view. We live in a spiritual and material world orchestrating an educational evolutionary progress of the heart mind Soul, an eternal quest. Selfishness and greed, acting out of separateness, and causing suffering with little or no learning or healing is hindering our happiness and enlightenment.
Spirit and Matters of earth need meet and agree in mindful harmony. All the leaders of earth should meet regularly and publicly with Peace, Love, Harmony in mind for all! All the earth is a living being, a Gaia, a wholeness, seeking balance, harmony, community and song!
Many, astrologically speaking, are stuck with moon reflections, no radiant virtue sunshine. Some can’t turn the noise and craziness of electronics and sense bound thinking off so to rest in the heart. Some on all the time and never learn to be still, ponder, contemplate, meditate, yoga. Some have the sun burning all the time, no stillness nor quiet down time to reflect.

Aug. 1st is the queen of diamonds in the card system, hard facts from mother earth and divine wisdom soul sophia presenting themselves to those with listening hearts.
Mars retrograde square Uranus is tough talk, blaming others, shaming, heavy gaming, explosive situations, sudden escalations and reversals in all affairs. Mars/Uranus creates lots of stress and tension.
Such aspect Mars/Uranus here last May and again in September, but this may prove the roughest into mercury direct on Aug 19th. Need to retrace steps and see honestly how we got here so not to repeat mistakes, eh?
Need for ArchAngelic courage for truth, honesty, compassion and protection of little ones (everyone who knows less and suffers more than you). Need true education how to love and respect all God’s creation and be co-creative not manipulative nor over controlling, but co-creative and in harmony with all. When we work on ourselves, we can change the world.
‘God’ is what Plato calls the ‘Oneness’. All things good, true, beautiful come from or go to this sense of unity, wholeness, Oneness. Oneness is permeating all the universe with creative diversity and spirit. Universal Mind to Hermes and Plato is the only begotten Son or light of the Oneness; the thinking in all things. The light of the world is connectivity, relationship, spirit to grow, love, learn, share.
We don’t always know and realize how everything we do, no matter how secret, affects everything and everyone else, and they us. When we are willing to learn, anything can happen, Plato said. Wisely Loving everyone isn’t an ideal, its karma, its dharma, its reality, we are not always conscious of it, that is the problem. This truth, Love, is what creates our future, our destiny or fate.
Mars/Uranus intensifies and quickens what’s taking too long, but the danger is impatience and weird releases of force, tension, precipitating hasty actions, mistakes, hurtful speech, anger and negative actions/reactions causing disturbance, ill winds, test of nerves and danger. The positive side is Mars as hero, in justice, truth, compassion and love. Honest courage to act with infinite patience being attuned to the eternal in each other is the higher octave of mars and venus working together. Jesus said ‘Love your enemies’, you don’t have to “like” them, love em. Buddha taught desire and fear are the cause of all suffering, and to have compassion and selfless wisdom is to free self and other. When we learn from our mistakes , we don’t repeat them. Lets be spiritual peace makers and wisdom keepers shining with Mars/Uranus higher truth light, joy wit.
There is never a time ‘God and Love’ is not with us. This is wisdom, infinite possibilities for the good true beautiful you. This is the real chance for winning, not the lotto loota. This NOW is always the time to learn, love, truth, be the sun/moon/earth, heart/mind/love for a real chance for renewal and positive change. Summer Blessings,

“What’s past is prologue.” ~the Tempest, Shakespeare

The economic view should be brotherhood of shared planetary existence, community family and universal heart, home. The religious view should be also the cultural artistic, deep inner flowering and ecological view. The political commonwealth should inculcate ethics (what is right to do) and the rights of all mankind, spiritual equality, practical everyday justice, education, for all.
——Robert of Mayflower

August 1st to August 11th, Mars square Uranus, Solar Eclipse (11th). Avoid fights unless you have to defend, and maybe not even then. Defend the weak, be brave and true, virtue deed self and other, be free, strong in roots and honoring all life, rights for all, God and Goddess, Great Father and Mother, Highest Truth and Love, bless us all. Here the breaking point is reached and many go beyond their means to find freedom, intelligence and love. Some just break their stride and search research for new truths capable of holding their emerging Higher Self and Future Destiny in the World Big Time.

“The lyre of true philosophy is no less tuneful in the desert than in the city; and he who knows how to call forth its latent harmony in solitude, will not want the testimony of the multitude to convince him that its melody is ecstatic and divine.”   (Thomas Taylor, from his History of the Restoration of Platonic Theology)

Full Moon August 26 with Venus square Pluto, on 27th August Mars goes direct. Love no matter what but attend to those less fortunate, the most for the many. Don’t take things personal other than your highest dream to work into manifestation. To proceed, to grow further, sometimes you have to pull weeds, cut something out, get rid of bad habits, let go of what don’t work, find your own way with others who want to grow and know more beyond this and back again. Deep love now works, fake love causes negative emotions and insecurities to emerge. Good time to share your naked mind and fully flowering summer heart. It may be now too late to pull weeds in the garden, but never too late to pull weeds in the soul stripping oneself pure in the light of universal truth and love, a brotherliness and sisterly mind/heart for all life. Be well, be star, be mindful dharma heart. Blessings.

“By mutual confidence and mutual aid,
Great deeds are done, and great discoveries made;
The wise new prudence from the wise acquire,
And one brave hero fans another’s fire.”
(The Iliad, Book X, trans. Pope)

There are divine dances: in the first place, that of the Gods; in the second place, that of divine souls: in the third place, the revolution of the celestial divinities, viz. of the seven planets, and the inerratic sphere, is called a dance: in the fourth place, those who are initiated in the mysteries perform a certain dance: and, in the last place, the whole life of a philosopher is a dance. Terpsichore, therefore, is the inspective guardian of all dancing. Who then are those that honour the goddess in the dance? Not those who dance well, but those who live well through the whole of the present existence, elegantly arranging their life, and dancing in symphony with the universe. Hermeas on the Phaedrus.

To what shall I compare

**************************
The spectacles of a philosopher?
To a clear dream by Jupiter, 
Circularly borne along in all directions; 
In which, indeed, the body does not move, 
But the soul travels round the whole earth, 
From earth ascends to heaven, 
Passes over every sea, 
Flies through every region of the air,
Runs in conjunction with the sun, 
Revolves with the moon, 
Is carried round with the choir of the other stars,
And nearly governs and arranges the universe, 
In conjunction with Jupiter! 
O blessed journey, beautiful visions,
And true dreams!
Maximus of Tyre, Dissertation VI

Hope your days summery sweet
and transcendental as the rose rose
above the thorns,

With the recent Jupiter retrograde trine Neptune, the big picture is in view but not totally manifesting, quirks in friends and relatives disrupt the beautific dream. Irrational exuberance? If everything is so perfect why aren’t you happy? Water signs (Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer) dreaming out, leaping for heaven, some make big splash, others splashed with cold water waking em up. Jupiter/Neptune aspects can be too idealistic or lazy, wishing to play not work, wanting something for nothing and trips for free. Oil prices and Movies experiencing extreme highs and lows (Jupiter/Neptune), as well as Euros up and down, Bitcoin too; lots of roller coaster rides going in circles? . Jupiter/Neptune aspects can be expressive of very idealistic dreamy magical love, relationship, marriage; but due to Jupiter retrograde in Scorpio, there may be a conflict of desire and mutually aligned futures. It certainly doesn’t help Jupiter’s expansive joyous outgoings and Neptunes dreamboat fantasies, to have Saturn/Pluto midpoint at Jupiter/Neptune’s midpoint; holy ‘cowabunga’ and carelessness with the big love holds us all? This could also be related to Supreme Court in USA overturning national gambling ban opening up the door to legalized gambling everywhere and more poor humans losing money while a very few win. Worries about money matters, health, separations due to sickness or wrong ideas, possible small beginnings for big returns, or big adventures with little return. S/P (saturn/pluto) demands reality from J/N (jupiter/neptune) big dreams and holy smoke, legalizing marijuana pushes forward. J/N requests and quests for fun and joy, creativity escapism and/or bit of heaven. If S/P demands hard work too much cold reality may dampen party. With Mars recent involvement, some very pushing for their agenda. April/May, the beautiful outer appearance and hot dream is cooling off with a more real picture appearing as how to get from here to there and what work needs to be done emerges. None-the-less, Love aspects nearly override all negatives come early June. Come July double eclipse and Aug.1st return of Mars square Uranus (again Sept. 18th), many a buckaroo wild horse ride ahead. Mars is outspokenness and brave action, strong thrusts forward, but Uranus demands high truth and accurate higher octave motivation and technique …., or things tend to back fire, suddenly twist and turn, return, or crash and burn, reverse or get maddeningly feisty competitive argumentative. Here patient good work and honesty for the good of all eventually prevails. Premature action or hasty quick knee jerk reactions backfire or waylay. Early fixed signs of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius feel the heat or are applying the heat to quicken the pace or cut out, part, separate.

Do not be afraid of your difficulties.Do not wish you could be in other circumstances than you are. For when you have made the best of an adversity, it becomes the stepping stone to a splendid opportunity.

~H.P.Blavatsky

Love and Hate make you immortal, choose love.

-my memory of Gelek Rinpoche comment.

Choosing is the active ingredient.

Saturn retrograde trine Uranus, in the air brings more harmonious big changes but not all the pieces of the puzzle fit the form of the day to day or practical necessities life demands perhaps. Its kind of a Bob Seger song lyric, “You just can’t have it all” and it doesn’t all fit in the car anyway. Saturn wants security and predictability, Uranus wants progressive change and forward motion, progress. Here earth signs Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo are favored when making realistic earthy plans practical and long term secure, yet progressive. Patience is key to see this creative process through into end of year.

You will not be good teachers if you focus only on what you do and not upon who you are.”

― Rudolf Steiner

If you are willing to learn, anything could happen! ~Plato

Where there is learning, there is freedom; where there is freedom, there is learning. Ultimately there is no learning, no real schooling without the study and listening to the cycles of nature and her seasons of work and play, rest and renewal. That there is an inner and outer nature, and a stillness beyond yet holding it all, is imperative. Without a trinity, all is lost. Call it everything, nothing, and a mind; religion, philosophy, and science; Spirit, matter, mind; call it love, truth, and a will to still go on no matter; there is a trinity ~ you, me, and the holy space around and in-between , if you know what i mean and what is yet to be explored and dreamed into new worlds.

~robert of mayflower

Mars in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus throws strong holistic healing message out, but also increased time of aggression, violence, hurtful painful ways of interacting. Yet Genius can also be at play, and for some a quickening of higher intelligence, creativity, and freedom. Here the way or means is the end result too. Some throw a strong ultimatum , ’Play by these rules or the game is over and all the toys will be removed’. Mars is desire or force, externalization of will, hopefully an Aquarian ideal of equality, freedom, happiness, and what is good for everybody, is at play.

Square to Uranus, Mars gives sense of urgency, now or never. Mars/Uranus can be violence as in crashes/shootings/harsh words or actions causing strong reactions (such is in news daily). Mars/Uranus is also lightening or storm (as in UK and France), wanting to throw things out, or wanting new but unable to process or compost old. Mars/Uranus can be moments of genius words and action, but it can also be momentary chaos and negative criticism or mean hearted action. On a positive note, Mars is Michaelic Courage, ArcAngel daring, and Manjushri cut through it all wisdom. Yet remember Bobby Kennedy’s words, “Progress is a nice word. But change is its motivator. And change has its enemies.”

In order to approach theosophy, steiner, blavatsky, plotinus, manly hall, magic, tibetan buddhism, macrobiotics, yoga, meditation, diet and health, mindfulness and dharma, with full cognition and ultimate possibility, it is necessary to fully attune your soul mind spirit totally to such truth and ultimate love. Don’t fool yourself, invest wisely and 100%, some vehicles to life are worth every penny of time.

-robert of mayflower, ‘Where Steiner meets theosophy, buddha, and Gelek.

And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the ‘Lord of Phosphorus,’ and Lucifer, or ‘Light-Bearer,’ is in us: it is our Mind. ~HPB.

ps.

Freedom demands we transform negativity and separateness, composting negativity and separateness into a sense that the whole world is really one big garden. Learning to garden in the spirit soul to soul is the whole secret of transforming, composting, evil into goodness, friendship, peace for the world. Heaven and Hell at the same time and place, space and moment; its the purity of the mind that chooses one or the other. Train the mind in virtue, theosophy and anthroposophy, buddhism and Osho good start! ~rt

Sun/Saturn conjunction last winter solstice dec 20th 2017 giving early warning shots of coming Saturn Pluto conjunction 2020, along with sense of need to control, especially if others are not in control. Extremes in weather and behaviour. Security and freedom, rootedness and sure growth, short term and long run with at odds or learn to work and play together. Cardinal Signs Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, Libra need be strong and self willed for desired goals and long term investment of self, time, money; yet also need to be flexible and more fun loving. All play and no work has no future, all work and no play has no present.

“The time has come to realize that supersensible knowledge has now to arise from the materialistic grave.”

― Rudolf Steiner

Currently, Chiron went into Aries, Uranus into Taurus, Mars into Aquarius.

Everything is trying to be new or renewed, unique in appearance and genuinely individualized, novel and marvelously brash and fabulously fashionable. On the other hand the Saturn/Pluto wants something old and classic, something old fashion romantic and terribly practical, rustic, antiquitous, and wise or prudent. Bit of a clash.

Yet early June Venus trines jupiter/neptune, but also Venus opposes Pluto, then Sun square Neptune. With Neptune these days in rough square to Jupiter/Saturn midpoint, there is an attempt of materialize spiritual and highly idealistic even futuristic ideals of happiness, versus wanting to escape, jump into fantasy, over feel everything and take it too personally. Also danger of delusional or illusive thinking and feeling getting in the way of true aims and workings. Things for such mutable sights may get lost in the shuffle of dreams. fantasies. unfulfilled or unrealistic goals or needs. With Jupiter now making what many consider good aspects, ponder that Jupiter is now square to the Pluto/Neptune midpoint indicating possible great gains for some, great losses for others, or a price to pay for misuse of resources, self, or other. Also an indication that personal pleasures and joys that don’t embrace a World Conception attempting to hold us all, a future that doesn’t ethically embrace world realities and a big picture holding all the planets long term interest, is doomed to fail in some collective or personal way. Earth Changes and destruction of nature need be further researched and assessed in light of Spiritual Science. The loss of the honey bee due to pesticides and mono cropping is another need to be looked into deeply for solution. Such aspects are indicative of how many people are losing their old or outworn social identity and are presently seeking new or renewed ways to relate to the greater world around them as well as deeper wiser inner stillness of self.

The exercise of magical power is the exercise of natural powers, but superior to the ordinary functions of Nature. A miracle is not a violation of the laws of Nature, except for ignorant people. Magic is but a science, a profound knowledge of the Occult forces in Nature, and of the laws governing the visible or the invisible world. Spiritualism in the hands of an adept becomes Magic, for he is learned in the art of blending together the laws of the Universe, without breaking any of them and thereby violating Nature. ~H.P.Blavatsky

Only those who dare to fall greatly can ever achieve greatly.

Dark Moon Lilith in Capricorn (control and conquer, think long term or is this short contract, law and love/sex, rules maintained or broken and sub sequential karma) conjunct Pluto April/May, along with Dark Moon Lilith conjunct Jupiter/Neptune midpoint may have thrown many into insatiable crazy love, as well as crazy possessiveness, obsessiveness, dark star adventure with many a kink to be ironed out; Many still feeling it in June. Come end of first week in August Dark Moon Lilith enters experimental and novel try anything once or twice Aquarius. Come late August into September, look out, Aquarian Dark Moon Lilith square retrograde Uranus! May reveal how much we all need to rethink love and sex, marriage and relations; may need a completely new vision and voice and plan that will stop the abusive man club cave and re-envision what new ways of seeing love and sex so so many aren’t continuing to break the rules yet demand others to obey!?! Much freedom of expression and cutting edge creative new fashion, music, the arts, as well as an anything goes attitude. Here ‘Intelligence is the ultimate aphrodisiac and venusian persuation’ if you will. Take care to look out for the thoughtless fling and exotic tattoo on your mind soul. Also here comes the sex dolls, more crazy mad love escapades, TV and Movie Love Fools available for mass indulgence and psychological emotional dismemberment and dare devil fool heartedness, unruly off the wall antiques as well as strong scrutiny and moral critique. For many, its freedom from the known and an adventure into higher minded full heartedness.

Art, reappearing color and soul, is eternal. We can love a thousand times more, don’t be attached to the form it takes; keep the whole world in mind, but mind the moment you are in. Here flowers dream.

First Lady Melania , the President’s wife’s hospitalization may give indication of her having an 8 degree Capricorn Moon, with Saturn there expect a long slow recovery, and/or some serious rethink of feelings and commitment. Also may indicate she has a late Gemini or early Cancer Rising Sign Ascendent or Rising Sign. If this true, then Melania has Aries midheaven with Chiron conjunct it with her own aim to be a maverick unique individual. With Saturn conjunct her Moon in June she is laying way back and long term planning. She has very good aspects in coming years making for a most unique and creative individual attaining much personal success and happiness. At the moment she is most likely totally transforming inside out and deepening her mind stream with ennobling higher virtue prayers. Saturn is slow but sure here i think. With Uranus transit heading for her natal Sun next summer but closing in now, she may be about to ascend to higher levels of consciousness, learn to do anything she puts her mind too, and may well become a super hero. At the moment the wisdom that can only come through time and suffering on this planet are awakening a new selfless wisdom, world wisdom and bottom line. Big decisions are being chewed on and new wisdoms are at hand (Saturn), as well as need for patience, perseverance, and endearing endurance. Uranus is freedom and higher intelligence, and bringing it up to the next higher level, Saturn at the moment is sit back and be still to know. Any unsureness or uncertainty will need time to make sure. Blessings of healing, wholeness, all that is good to Melania, First Lady.

Home and Housing prices seem to be rising twice what wages and inflation are covering. Oopps ….another dumb bubble to drop punt and pop next summer if not before. Gosh, when we gonna get clean air, water, education for children, love and truth is greater than power guns, money, and ego. Yea, those things smart cool, but without love and compassion for all earth ~ dumb gets dumber.

Saturn Rx. transit squaring UK Ascendent at 7 Libra. Neptune/Pluto midpoint conjunct UK Venus, while Venus opposing UK Saturn then goes on to oppose Pluto. Not a lot of love going on there these days. Increasing violence and split identity , karma, catching up there. Ego and criticism without right alternative view and solution leading to cold wars and rejection, anger, and lack of compassion.

Hawaii Anyone? Lots of quakes and volcanoes waking up these daze. Hi Good By Hawaii? Well, if you look at the horoscope of Ka’Iulani, Princess of Hawaii, who mysteriously got thrown out , and died in late 1880’s when Theosophy and Steiner arose; you may get some insight into Goddess Revenge. Jupiter the planet of fun and overriding others for one’s own fun or social life, truth, music, and muse; is conjunct now the Princess of Hawaii’s Dark Moon Lilith. Also Uranus sudden eruption and revolution, is now conjunct her Neptune at 1 degree Taurus. Holy yikes and holy smoke. Volcanoes purify the upper airs, just like fights, war, violence wipe out lower airs; none of it is exactly enlightened, but from an esoteric point of view; unless we find higher peace and love, compassion and truth within us to stop wars; life keeps teaching us the hard way. Uranus transit now is also opposing her Venus; Hawaii needs to find a new way to love! Four five years and ears down the road, when Uranus in sky conjuncts her Moon/Pluto conjunct at 22-23 Taurus, a whole new Hawaii be happening. Pluto now in 4-5 years coming to conjunct her Mars may be giving ill omens to happiness and joy living in them parts.

As for Hawaii chart as a state, the astrological starry insights give this; Neptune transit in sky is square to Hawaii’s Venus for awhile, Love now needs lots of truth and reality and no false escapism into luciferic wonderlands. Ok, that was a bit too Steiner like. Nep square Venus is only higher love works now, everything else is melting in fire and false dreams, or whatever it is beyond this. Still esoteric, i know. Neptune is a response to pollution, the voice of the Great Mother, the Dream real or not real, revealed. Uranus in the sky is about to trine Hawaii natal Pluto….., freedom through higher truths is at hand. New ways to transcend dumb psycho drama is at hand. Tough road, i agree. Pluto transit nearing bottom of the chart indicates Hawaii is bottoming out and in coming year or two going deeper than ever into death and rebirth, compassion love tolerance helpfulness to neighbors, to rising from suffering into new lands, new futures, renewed faith in the heart and mind, soul and spirit of life. May peace and love win both land and sky, friend and foe, into mutual creativity holds us all whole and holy.

He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home.

——Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Detroit –

In looking at Detroit’s Astrology Chart of July 23, 1701, 4:51pm when Cadillac founded city, Detroit has a 0 Leo Sun with Mars at nearly 28 Cancer. Well, recently Mars transit as well as Uranus squared and opposed Detroit’s Sun and Mars. The Mayor, and others, recently spoke of Detroit being the most violent city in the USA and school children having the lost scores of intelligence in USA. With Neptune transit squaring Detroit’s Moon at 15 Pisces, it doesn’t fair well in the future when all the before mentioned aspects, due to retrograde motion, return in august through early november 2018. In March and June 2020, Saturn will oppose Detroit’s Sun; then good tough rules will come into play as well as beginnings of bottom up structure supporting home, family, education, dealing with pollution problems. Jupiter and Saturn together in conjunction will oppose Detroit Sun by exact degree in December 2020. Then on look for Detroit to for real become world class city bottoms up, top down. In feb/March, and May/June, and Oct. 2019, Jupiter conjuncts Detroit’s Ascending/Rising Sign making for much hoopla and monies thrown around for many a project and wild speculation, much happiness due to greater sense of leadership and spiritual uplifting events, positive sense of brotherliness and sisterhood, community and family, all as friends. But it really takes till 2020 to lock into long term for sure success, health, and wealth for the city of detroit. That’s my prediction. Detroit’s Sagittarius rising gives it that blunt frank up front honest approach. Leo Sun a zero degrees gives us lots of amateur egos. Mars/Uranus in Cancer the guns, anger, aggressive, purple gang mentality, but also the fight for freedom and justice and a higher more virtuous way to go. Jupiter/Moon/Saturn in Pisces gives us that psychic intuitive, home family friends good work wish and dream that is time will occur again and again till we get it right. Midheaven in Libra is goal of equality and relationship to all life. Venus conjunct Pluto node in Leo makes for the gambling, strip clubs, undercover night life, erotic, and secretive stuff. Up side of that is a search for love that transcends death and fear. A search for love as higher identity; also the redemption of the dark feminine. See the books, ‘Running with the Wolves’, ‘The Sacred Prostitute’, ‘The Pregnant Virgin’, Marion Woodman Books. Also see ‘The King Warrior Magician Lover’. The Voice of the Silence can be helpful here too, its by Blavatsky. Detroit’s Dark Moon Lilith conjunct Neptune in Aries is another story in itself, but we’d have to go back to Plum Street, the Grande Ballroom, Monteith College at Wayne State, and when Belle Isle and the Detroit River were mystic magical divine centers. Whew! It has to do with the sensuous first one’s out of the box, the early wild music scenes and riots for higher reason and rhyme, love and truth. Detroit needs more of this archetypal wild woman, Artemis, Persephone, Ishtar and more!

There are two things

children should get from their parents:

roots and wings.

Astrology News for June from Robert of Mayflower~~~

Love starts when we push aside our ego and make room for someone else, perhaps a person we could have never dreamed nor ever were.

-robert of mayflower, ‘Where Steiner meets Osho.’

June 1st-2nd-3rd Mercury trine Mars in air signs signifying meeting and agreeing of minds, contracts, plans, good notions, accurate observations. Also Venus trine Jupiter, and Venus trine Neptune in water signs all in grand trine makes for beautiful love imaginations and fantasies or futures . Great days for creative play, writing, communicating, making friends, healing old scenarios and suffering patterns, envisioning and planning one’s highest self, goals,greatest adventure; time to be the love and truth you want to see in the world. Sense of fulfilling one’s destiny or linking up to good, true, beautiful. If one has their feet practically on the ground this can be a most enlivening and flowering time for love, friends, family, mother nature, mothering and being mothered. Certainly a great time for yoga, mediation, attuning the the highest principles of truth, life, love, compassion, and virtue mind. Dumb sucker or dreaming into better futures? Hard to tell eh? Trust no one but yourself? Be still to know.

June 5th Sun conjunct Mercury in Gemini reveals things needing real honest assessing and evaluating, Venus in Cancer oppose Pluto in Capricorn puts some high flyers and false dreamers in quick checkmate. Such aspect brings out the crazy emotions, jealousy, anger, negative emotions, a sense of let down or being caught in the past, or some negative pattern. Gamblers beware of being set up to lose if not practical in projections and dreams. A wake up call for many. Difficult aspect for addicts (of anything), bad shoppers, mad lovers obsessed and kinky, weird control freaks, and lack of security. Love can go south here. Feelings of loss or rejection abound. Secrets get revealed. All isn’t what it was made out to be. On positive note, sense of protecting valuables, honor, home, little ones; a sense of depth and commitment, hopefully not making one feel stuck or tied down, depressed or negative. Good aspect for cleaning, fixing up, repairing, restoring, renewing sense of compassion for all who suffer and a selfless willingness to keep learning till one can help the world round find more loving peace and co-creative freedom. For some a sense of ending, completion, death. For others birth, loving anew, pulling weeds, cleaning, making sacred again the space for good things to happen.

“Feelings are for the soul what food is for the body.”

-attributed to Steiner

June 6 Mercury square Neptune. Emotions may fall short of logic. Tell the truth, but better yet, live it. Assume you can’t wait for the other to make you happy, be the love you are looking for. Dream but be practical. Some may be hiding something, others exposing. Creative imagination needs outlet. Avoid distractions to main goal to achieve. Read the fine print, avoid gambles or taking unwarranted chance. Perhaps good for artistic or future planning if one is patient. Need to stay present and not let past and/or future lure you out of ‘be here now’ take a good look. Work present for better future. This leads into next day with more false news, fake news, false projections, lies or deceit. Or is it artistic wish to divine the divine and change the future from road presently on? Many sudden shifts in plans. Strange dreams and psychic persuation abounds. Trust nothing you see, half of what you feel, and all that is here now rather than in past or future. Demonizing anyone other than our own ‘habit’ we wear, our own seeing feeding nourishing separateness/shame/blame, is foolish at best, victimizing of self and other at worse. Vanquish demons by calm abiding space equanimity and gardening. Plants won’t lie to you.

*Recent Pluto opposing USA SUN in CANCER Mom Sign? American women birth rate for children at the lowest rate on record, the number of babies born in the U.S.A. last year dropped to a 30-year low. -see “Births Hit Lowest Number Since 1987,” Wall Street Journal, May 17, 2018. Or is it Neptune transit squaring Mars/Uranus midpoint heading for square to Mars while opposing Neptune and midheaven in Virgo, Men becoming impotent. Good at war though eh? Where the Gardeners! USA Pluto return late Capricorn in second house portends of need to return to what really matters, rather than dreaming out into getting richer and richer, higher and higher, and never stopping to grow the roses, forget smelling em, grow em; save the bees, get the beeswax out of your ears and into the soil!

Always write a poem a day,

people will think you crazy

and leave you alone

Nothing will work.

~robert of mayflower

June 7th Sun square Neptune, Read June 6th leading into this. Neptune can be weird storms, volcanoes, floods, or delusions and false dreams. Good to know if you are dreaming. One can fantasize but know you are. Often with such aspects last few days, media and news full of misleading facts, propaganda, lies, or bizarre craziness to distract real news and hard facts. Good for the muse, music, spiritual insights, flowers, art, poetics, dreamy idealistic romance. If inspired, one is a whirlwind of inspiration; otherwise, little work gets done, feelings of being spacey or out of it, danger of food spoilage, temptation to play hooky. Mystical feelings of union and communion or opposite, loss of common sense and rational mind? Psychic insights are to be had, but keep your common sense.

Mars conjunction South Node at this time adds to the mix with strong unconscious drives for relationship based on physical needs, or sex; while other relations otherworldly and spiritual, but not practical nor incarnated, dreamy too dreaming to come true. Some quarrel and force issue coming across egotistical or selfish. Positive expression is a release of superior force and bravado for purpose of helping self and others to progress pure and simple. A middle way works, tibetan buddhist like. Osho’s Book of Secrets could work, but who is daring enough to live that life, most use spiritual secrets to get their desires fulfilled then take off. Damn. Where are the good guys gals when you need em?! May Truth and stillness listening conquer our distractions, may dharma capture our imagination to matter day to day, life to life, until all the world is divining the divine in each other (rather than projecting at others and demonizing impotent to help awaken, heal or nourish becoming being peace).

You have neither friends nor enemies, you only have teachers. Some show you what to do and you will learn to be like them. Some show you what not to do, or you will end up like them. Keep learning, keep open, then miracles can happen. All miracles spark from a willingness to keep learning. Selflessness and openness to learn is real magic, miracle. -robert of mayflower

The Eternal Feminine leads us forever ON! -Goethe

June 8th Venus oppose Dark Moon Lilith. Get ready, this is a wild one, good and bad. Intense spiritual meetings, redemption of extremes in finding balance, heart of the middle way. Old wisdom meets eternal puer, angels of destiny and redemption. On the other hand some pretty lusty feelings and emotions play with the eternal and temporal elements meeting at this time. In May Dark Moon Lilith in sky made a conjunction with Pluto triggering the wild woman archetype to get wilder and wilder in woman and man. This can be good or bad. Some feel betrayed, others waylaid; some feel empowered but without higher love and truth, enjoy the hour. Yet this can be a putting the separate self, the ego betrays the Higher Self, the Christos, Hermes, Christ, in check. We need divine check mates. Check out the news for how many instinctive astral urges are now in trouble for speech or action, and how many still try to ‘take it to the limit, one more time’ as the music band the Eagles once sang. This May aspect triggered many to attempt to find the most sensuous thing and disappear ‘Lucy in the sky’ like, melt down. Others Volcanic exploded. Ok, if this doesn’t make sense, try this; many are desperate for love or desire or wanted goal and are ready to run over anyone and everyone who gets in the way. That better. Still others, are divining the divine juicy sensual holy in every moment and every person. Some are prisoners of their dream, and others are freed in it. Takes a bit of time to see who is who and what is what; but come June 8th, and the week after, we will see who’s boat is seaworthy. Venus opposing Dark Moon Lilith is not good for grand standing but can be a very good aspect for learning to love differences, learning to shine truth and love and let go of attachment to results, as the Bhagavad Gita teaches (see William Q. Judge edition). The 20-21st of July the Sun opposes Dark Moon Lilith. Look for the strong rise of women to power, while other women quick fall from power. Such aspects have an auric envelop of influence days or even week or two before and/or after. Very strong love urges prevalent, urge to matter, to spirit. Strong need for Dharma mind and perhaps NeoPlatonic thought to see the way through clear and bright in Sophia the Goddess’s Holy Light!

August 10th and 11th Mars in Aquarius going retrograde conjuncts Dark Moon Lilith, Whew! Tarzan now a wall street broker meets Jane now a wild woman from “She would never say, where she came from; yesterday don’t matter, if its gone”, the return of Artemis and the Voice of the Goddess? Conflicting times if you don’t have a good road map (right books from Mayflower Bookshop on Virtue Mind Training and the new Mystery Schools of Love and Truth awakening voice and mind of the Heart of Hearts!).

Let Artemis, Athena, Diana, Dionysus and Orpheus sing in your heart to fulfill your destiny and graduation thesis, read the curving inundating rhythms of the seasons/month/evening and circling stars for your master thesis; then again, just play the instrument.

There is no meaning to life, we make it meaningful; or not.

Be the love, the truth, you waiting for. Be it, listen, nourish only the eternal in each other. ~rt

June 14th, Venus square Uranus; creative sparks, a new reaching out, wanting to quicken things up. For some, upsets in feelings or love, or is it new insights and shifts of how to appreciate or care for friends and loved ones? Mid June has Mars conjunct Jupiter/Uranus midpoint, can be very lucky or unlucky in love and money, depending on what other transits one has in their chart. Possible peaceful change for the better. For coming 7 days many attempts to mend the fence, make peace, reconciliations, novel new ways of relating and connecting.

If we never believe in ourselves in deeply rooted feelings there is something higher than ourselves, we will never find strength to evolve into something higher. If we never believe in others in deeper yet feelings that there is something deeper than our self, we will never find the truth there is something deeper than self holds, nourishes, weathers all of us; and we are each and all, all of us. Wake up in your dream and see. -robert of mayflower, ‘Where Steiner meets Osho and Hermetics Neoplatonic’.

Weird fact ~ Virginity restoring surgical operations at all time high, also birth rate at a low. Junk sex and junk food at all time high. Guardian newspaper says one out of ten websites has something kinky or porn on it. Now making and selling sex robots and toys. Where the romance of the soul, the higher self? There are sex classes but where are the love classes, the higher octave spiritual love?

June 21 Venus in Leo oppose Mars in Aquarius during Summer Solstice. For better and/or worse, confrontations, strong polarities in sex and love, friendship and family, ego and egoless. To re-establish or to feel separated from. Some shine, others get a shiner. Lovers fight argue, conflict or oppose, possible mishaps, accidents, rudeness or overly strong vs over sensitive hurt. Some behave like dogs and cats, others have a wild but good good time. Separateness ego desire or want/need may clash with sense of greater whole, family or community. Freedom vs security/control irritate or make edgy the auric field and day. Lots of energy if one knows how to use it. Good to know what you don’t want avoiding unnecessary hassles. Drive safe and slow, avoid road rage or arguments going nowhere fast.

The ultimate secret of lovers is that someone has to surrender, or is it someone has to spark? But surrender to what? The eternal highest truth, the deepest rootless root, stillness distilling every experience into elixir of enlightenment? Sparking what? A song invokes the land under our feet, our distant and close neighbors to meet? A weaving of every truth and love this planet ever felt into a rosary mala of love frees the song in our heart? At best we have half truths (hermetic means half revealed half concealed), till the other gets it. Sometimes we are ‘the other’. Don’t be an alien, love the earth.

`robert of mayflower

There are people in every time and every land who want to stop history in its tracks. They fear the future, mistrust the present, and invoke the security of a comfortable past which, in fact, never existed.

-Robert Kennedy

“It takes courage…to endure the sharp pains of self discovery rather than choose to take the dull pain of unconsciousness that would last the rest of our lives.” ~Marianne Williamson

June 23 Mercury oppose Pluto makes for difficult communication unless much wisdom hindsight and compassionate loving kindness in play. Facilitate lasting wisdom, gain insight from the past not to repeat it. Plant seeds and support one another’s higher self or wholeness journey. Avoid getting stuck on details and derailing from the track. This may be tough travel or communication day for some. For others deeper insights and further research prosper. Secret and opposing views warp the field of space.

“Wherever you’ve been, and whatever you’ve done so far, your entire life was building up to this moment. Now is the time to burst forth into your greatness, a greatness you could never have achieved without going through exactly the things you’ve gone.” ~Marianne Williamson

Love is higher than opinion. If people love one another the most varied opinions can be reconciled – thus one of the most important tasks for humankind today and in the future is that we should learn to live together and understand one another. If this human fellowship is not achieved, all talk of development is empty. -Rudolf Steiner

June 25th Venus square Jupiter. Love abounds, take care not to over do it. Watch needless expenditure, yet some things are worth shooting for, freedom of space, giving space,feeling both earth and star!

There is nothing worse than aggressive stupidity.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

June 26th Mars goes retrograde until August 27th, from 9 Aquarius to 28 Capricorn. The desire for the new freedoms get frustrated with needs for security and reliable regularity. Innovations and situations of love, relations, sex, flings for new desires or bigger stomping grounds need to reflect, think before rashly acting, and patiently work for long term practical goals and not flings of imaginative fancy that may now back fire on you. Some think this not a good time to initiate conflict, struggle, war, new projects without danger of backlash or failure. Mars wants to act, do something, be physical. Good for yoga and gardening, cleaning, revisiting friends and goals, but perhaps tricky when voyaging into new territory without being well thought out. The Sun/Saturn is lack of control or too much control squashing creativity and freedom. Bad time to be angry, demanding, aggressive or possessive, over assertive or flamboyantly blurting proclamations. Full Moon in Capricorn gives further vibe to this mars retrograde time. Some get hard worked for respect and good prospect, others get hard karma demanding further work or paying past debts. Such aspect is most strongly affecting early Fixed signs Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, Aquarius planets, and late Cardinal Signs houses and planets of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra, Aries (Next Mars retrograde in 2020, Sept 9th to November 13). This Mars retrograde late June into August may be a tough one. July 19-20 Mars will conjunct S.Node. On day Mars goes retrograde, Mars is opposing Venus, and the Sun opposes Saturn exactly.

“We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.”

——Louis D. Brandeis

June 27 Sun oppose Saturn tends to force reality and long term goals into affects and effects onto the days here. Some fall from airy fairy dreamy sweet nothings to terra firm ground. Some choose to stay home more often. Some study and prepare for better days and nights. Some see the fruitions of their good work. Doors close on some, certain events reach climax or ending or strong turning point, perhaps a sense of return or need to return. Happiness when alone. Hotter and colder, give love compassion and be patient.

Since the days of Greece and Rome, when the word ‘citizen’ was a title of honor, we have often seen more emphasis put on the rights of citizenship than on its responsibilities.

-Robert Kennedy (i met him, talked, touched. Love em and carry em in m’heart!)

Rise above the thorns of life long enough to know yourself a rose, a spirit roots earth and screams to be as vast as the sky and sun, circling stars and planets on the run singing one mantra; i love you, i love you, i love you. Be mad with love, all the others facts are maddening. Be One Truth, Love all in all even this moment still. ~rt.

June 30th Mercury square Uranus. Genius moments, mind reaching out further than grasp perhaps. For some tough communications and need to re-think or review, update, or get higher view. Avoid beating your point to death. Patience and loving kindness needed here. Need to tweak or make technical adjustment. Actions need to back up words, words need activate work, work needs to be smart not hasty. Good time for astrology or tarot reading or research.

Love and compassion, no matter how nuts and idealistic they seem, free us from ourselves long enough to see beyond our self, into a purpose and direction big enough to redeem our every past, enliven our every present and presence, and diving a future worth living into for the sake of each and everyone. ~robert of mayflower

There is a knighthood of the 21st century Whose riders do not ride through the darkness Of physical forests, as of old, But through the forest of darkened minds. They are armed with a spiritual armour, And an inner sun makes them radiant. Out of them shines healing, Healing that flows from the knowledge Of the human being as a spiritual being. They must create inner order, inner justice, Peace, and conviction in the darkness of our time. They must learn to work side by side with angels.

~Karl König.

Tolerating organized crime promotes the cheap philosophy that everything is a racket. It promotes cynicism among adults. It contributes to the confusion of the young and to the increase of juvenile delinquency.
