Astrology, Love, and Magic of New and Full moon (dec. 2018)

Sunday, December 9th, 2018
Just after Apollo sunset tonight (dec. 9 into10), red crescent moon in southwest looking like the ‘bow’ and ‘bow wow’ for Eros (Cupid) Arrow pointing at angle down to earth westwards. I actually swear i felt Artemis opening the bow of new moon to full with Athena and Hermes at each of m’ears. The Etheric Forces of Sunshine growing into Astral urge to grow, do something, learn and ground, root and flower in our souls. Good Omen sign for next few weeks to avoid anger, seeing oneself separate from others and world soul process. Avoid judging others where it doesn’t help them and becomes ‘excuse & escape’ for not working on oneself, a form of spiritual laziness. Avoid one up manship, or onewomanship, acting hastily our of fear or anxiety, impatience. Good sign for ending wrong directions and impossible projects, relations; and starting off in new(or renewed) directions with whole heartedness and 99% of yr mind behind it. Keep an X Factor that there is always something further to learn good for all us. Perhaps Artemis moon bow and Phoebus sun’s arrow of fohatic light pointing west is about manifesting our angelic intelligence, our higher self and dream come true, completing things so something more can drop in or arise.
For sure getting earthy and supersensible, sensuously super loving lovely as we head for full moon venus (Athena, Psyche, Goddess love aspects Dec. 21-22 solstice time. Venus also the way we inwardly integrate experience to find wisdom and light. Solstice to Christmas recapitulates last 4 earth evolutions and then the following 12 days of Christmas reveals secrets of the new year to come as well as next three earth evolutions. (See my book and Outline of Occult Science by Steiner, or my talks on such). The wisdom of the ancients thot, thoth, thought and taught, real new moon 3 days after what we call new moon, or more practically speaking, after dec. 8th new moon these 3 days set the stage for next two if not four weeks. So Happy esoteric New Moon today into tomorrow which is the NeoPlatonist Porphyry, student of Plotinus birthday 234 AD. At Mayflower Bookshop we got their writings, books, and more, the vibe. We’re just over lots of tough astrological aspects as you see reflected in markets, politics, money, weather, and more. Lots of good aspects now coming into play these next weeks.

“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,

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,

‘The ultimate imagination is each and everyone of us is becoming a god like virtue. Each is awakening the universal spark of love and truth within heart and soul. Each a universal song in the becoming. As jesus said, as well as old testament wisdom, ‘Ye are Gods in the becoming.’ We are virtue heart mind streams in the becoming, artists of the divine. -robert of mayflower

Astrology News——-
Jan. 1st Mars conjunct Neptune to Jan. 7th Sun conjunct Pluto puts a spell of fog and negative emotion on first week. Colds, flu, strange gilded age intoxications, conspiracies and magical webs of insight anew bringing renewed light and hope. Weird extremes in the weather and as reported on my Facebook page and website, uptick in quakes/storms/volcanos. Jan. 10th into full moon on Jan 11th-12th brings things to extremes and turnarounds, reversals with crazy news, blow ups, behaviour and weather extremes, lightening responses., Need to bring things to a higher level adds to tension or release. Avoid things that drain or lead off course from long term goals. Make no promises you can’t keep. Good time for practical down to earth concerns. Miscommunications abound until we get past Jan.8th when Mercury goes direct from retrograde. Take care to avoid taking things too personally. Work on self rather than others. Correct fault lines and wrong habits not promoting one’s true will to the future present. More strange deaths and passings, as well as psychic adventures, dream messages and revelations. Good time to get a good astrology reading, lay back with mayflower book, or pick up some more miso and seaweed for your homemade soups (at mayflower too!).

‘Nature abhors a vacuum and men seem to be following in nature’s example. Remember, especially around elections, to always clean your own house first, be first a cynic to one’s own lack of virtue enough to win change, and always tune your own instrument of heart and mind before trying to re-tune others.’
-robert of mayflower

Jan. 8th Mercury goes direct from retrograde. Big ideas and goals renew the surge to go forward with projects and aims. For some sudden shift in coming days to redirect aims, goals, projects. Slow but sure clarity comes in coming days.
Jan. 10th Sun squares Uranus triggering possible solar activity, uptick in storms, quake/volcano activity, and shocking news, political weirdness and emotional upsets. Sudden news or on alert, shocks of awareness, new facts, surprises, sudden shift or change, turn-a-rounds and new excitements, need for stimulus Urge to progress, be free, awaken, strive for reform. Danger of accident or set back, catastrophe. Surprise news or disturbance. Need to take things to a higher level of activity in truth and virtue. Facts or newly discovered truths alarm and awaken change. This aspect affects 3 days before and after. Lots of changes going on in the world with politics, economics, attractions and distractions, affecting us all. Important to seize the time or opportunity, but also important to find down time for rest, rejuvenation, beauty sleep or yoga, positive changes. Avoid just spinning your wheels and having panic attacks or worries not getting you anywhere but more confused and lost. Sometimes doing more is doing less, getting more done with less effort but more wisdom and focus. Good time to try a new book and insight from Mayflower Bookshop. Come on down! Up!

‘Without inner wealth, wisdom and selfless learning, listening; outer wealth alone will torture and torment the soul. Without the outer wealth of health, education of virtue, value of friendship, courage and fearless for truth, the soul is poor indeed.’ -rt

Jan. 11th Sun square Jupiter brings over the top antics, party or festive vibe into full moon on 12th. Avoid arrogance, prideful boastys, over doing, talking too much or making promises you can’t keep. Good for successful endeavor, recognition, advancement, right purchases.

Jan. 12th Full Moon in Cancer with moon making T-Square to Jupiter and Uranus brings break throughs or break down, plunging somethings and sudden leaps courageous through the air toward new projects/goals/dreams. Strong shifts in weather and emotions. Venus conjunct Neptune adds to the fairy tale magic, or for some the lost slipper and winter blurr. For some, dreams come true and love abounds. For others dreams, goals, love melts and is more on the horizon far away with stars. Illusion and trickery or a magic spell for success? For some divine inspiration, for others cloudy foggy winterization and loss. Good time for future planning, the arts, creativity, music, musing, and share sweet nothings. Good time to re-attune to the gods of virtue and more eternal realities. Mercury entering Capricorn on 12th calls for practical common sense, not over shooting goals, listening to the rules, and avoiding mouthing off or playing big shot egoist making oneself easy target for other’s criticism. Positive side, new leadership and ideas for long term goals, knowing what to let go of to make room for further growth, progress and success.

Love is spirit recognizing spirit, soul acknowledging soul, body and hearts dancing, minds learning….’there is self and other as path, but ultimately it is a ‘no self’ heaven, an All Self Awareness we seek and find. This all self reality is pristine stillness, all inclusive, emptiness in buddhist theory, no separate reality, only dependent arising, non-dual’. Love and Truth the same. -rt

Jan. 16th to Jan 19th when Mars squares Saturn (90 degree hard aspect), tougher weather, tougher going, hard work, need to be paitient, persevering, persistent, with higher aims and values, ideals and aspirations. Good time to help those less fortunate than yourself. Cold weather, cold shoulder? Cool and calm patient or opposite extreme, hot headed. Need to hug more, work harder, love more, take short power renewing naps. Mars is cars and saturn is contractions or negative experience as teacher or lesson giver. Saturn here is Karma unless discipline and sacrifice in work and ethic open doors, dharma is this. Harsh or overly critical language brings harsh reactions. Mars in Pisces often misses its mark or misfires. Need to be compassionate with constructive criticism when called for. Car troubles, difficult travel or communications. Hard work, patience and persistence, pays off.

‘Perhaps the solution of the problem is suggested by these words of Nathaniel
Hawthorne: “We sometimes congratulate ourselves at the moment of waking
from a terrible dream; it may be so after death’–Alexander Wilder

Jan 19th to Jan 27th when Venus square Saturn and NEW MOON (27th) near Neptune/Pluto midpoint and Saturn/Neptune midpoint. For some curtains close, sad endings, severe times, feelings of being alone or insecure, depressed, caught in the middle of something. A sense of Comedy and Tragedy. For others this is the start of a long journey of spiritual soul unfoldment. For many, selfless new beginnings, for others a slow but sure end game is at play. Good time for ridding oneself of unnecessary burdens, things going nowhere, and wrong habits. Good for yoga, meditation, bodywork, change to healthier diet, voyage for spiritual cleansing or learning. Good time to clean and prep for better futures. Work on changing self to change the world. If you really think you can change the world for the better, this is the time to virtuously act, be true to one’s higher self and universal song of life. Venus is love and Saturn is lack of it…., so give more love, give more than you receive to counter chilling effect of Saturn. Positively Venus/Saturn can be long term commitments, forever love, deeper love and work ethic discipline. Venus/Saturn is loving what you do, or needing to find work or commitments you can love. Venus/Saturn makes for some not feeling loved enough, others smothered or too controlled by such. For still others, deepening of understanding and experience of love. New Moon near Nep/Pluto midpoint indicate power moves, plutocratic dictorial moves in next weeks, a sense of life and death critical states of timing. Over sensitive soul moods, tendency to over react or go to extremes. For some prophetic psychic perceptions, views of past and future shift present stance. Such aspects give doomsday feeling, for others sense of renewal. Renunciation, suffering, illness, lingering negative situation, ecological concerns. Also sense of destiny and duty overwhelm feelings. Need for big view, universal planetary healing view and aim.

When in doubt, start a new chess game. Be sure to complete it. Otherwise wait in stillness for higher orders or insight. This is meditation, watching who is watching, listening to the stillness, awareness without object, consciousness without object, and right action, in that order. -robert of mayflower

Jan. 28th Mars enters Aries till March 9th. A sense of heroic or Michaelic courage, truth, and justice vs. need for disciplined behaviour, better law and order, individual and social justice. Tendency to be over assertive, yet now for the next month or more is the time to act. Act selflessly without attachment to results, act out of one’s pure intention and intuitive ideal. Avoid use of force or blunt volition. See Bhagavad Gita translated by Judge for more on this. Voice of Silence by HPB great inspirational text on this subject of right action without attachment to result. Don’t let your urge to do something, and your fighting spirit, cause unneeded quarrels or accidental occurrence.

“Fear no failure, Court no success.” -Voice of Silence

Jan. 31st Mercury square Uranus, flashes of new awareness, unsettling news, change of mind, irritant to mental flow. Need to think clearly in respect to long term view before acting hastily. Surprising events, shocking news. Good for research and discovery, experimenting within safe boundaries.

Feb. 6, Jupiter goes retrograde in Libra till June. Relationships now deepen or get severely questioned, partnerships evaluated anew. Some excel and some need repair, renewing, reviewing, reevaluating, retooling, reschooling. Many enjoy new encounters and friendships offering more fun, growth, and sunnier creative artistic loving disposition. Avoid over critical behaviour, stick to constructive tips and teaching by example.

Feb. 10th Lunar eclipse in Leo near Saturn/Uranus midpoint. Security and Freedom vie for power or position. Tension to grow, flow, travel, plan better, envision clearer. Present, Future and Past clash with future and present tending to win over past ways, mistakes, plays, and remakes. Something new is breaking through old patterns of thought and behaviour.
