With Neptune aspects in sky for all of us June 9th to 16th, its dreamy escapism, artistic atunement, soul matings, mystic love; or its getting lost with things not quite working like you wanted. Trust in oneself with high ideals and practical day to day workings best. Nature outdoor experience, exercise, yoga, challenging spiritual reading/study, health food choices, meditation good. Avoid too much of a good thing. Terribly crazy aspects start seriously June 14th mars opposition to Saturn into June 19th mars opposition to pluto and Neptune going retrograde June 21st. These Mars/Saturn/Pluto aspects often bring about a need to fight for one’s existence. Such aspects can be heavy duty controls/demands on economic markets, military and political machinations, relations. Extremes in weather, some places stormy cold, others extreme hot. A sense of losing the middle or balance. Need to practical down to earth working patience, wisdom, and forbearance. Certainly many a situation will be at stretching point about to break, so much patience, endurance, persistence, perseverance, and perspiration may be at hand. Keep loving, keep holding to the highest ideals, keep being, living truth.
The June 26-27th debates are important to tune into. Friend Marianne Williamson will be there! Lets hope the good aspects are back by then! Should be.

‘There is one spiritual heart tempo, a mantra prayer singing in the temple of the Universe,
it is love truth to be found. – robert of mayflower

Real Spiritual Knowledge is oft a shock to the beginner, a ‘re~orchestration’ and reinterpretation of one’s whole life. One good new idea rewrites everything. Gives new inspiration, insight, adventure and growth to the soul. To avoid ‘occult indigestion’ from learning to fast and reading books deep from mayflower bookshop; take nature walks, visit woods and forests and seas, eat grains and greens and miso soup, keep balanced with universal compassion and love of it all, selflessly service the Higher Self in all. Keep learning, soul weaving, gardening. . ~Trebore Tau Bodhi

The Seat of the Soul is in the listening heart, the seat of the Spirit is in the heart of others…

Astro News June on 2019
Leading us into June ~ May 29th Mercury square Neptune. Reality and fantasy fight it out. Hermes and the Muse of Spiritual Understanding seek the inbreath to the heart. The mind yearns to unite with a greater wholeness. The lack the honesty or courage to dare know do in some retards and thwarts progress. Reach out in June to be heard from your heart mind soul. Important to understand one’s deeper feelings and to ascertain whether such feelings are appropriate for the needs and requirements of the future, for all those round, for your deepest self true. Avoid talking too much or throwing one’s energy in too many directions. Some suffer a slip of the tongue, lie or misleading drift. Be the truth you are, don’t over cater to others wants/desires unless it quickens your higher self and virtue practice, being human artistic process and prowess. News is nuts and not always to be trusted into mid June. Yet truths may leak out not often seen and this can be good for creative imaginative sparks of genius, beauty, sparks of forward motion, music and arts. Tendency to be blind to something, or to suddenly see the bigger picture with need to adjust or re-attune oneself. Avoid gambling or risk taking other than on arts, love, truth, magic of one’s own making. Keep practical.

One new insight re-orchestrates world destiny, view,opens doors to the new futures, re-interpreting the past. Finding such jewels of insight renew the soul. I read Steiner, Blavatsky, Tibetan Buddhism, Osho, and Manly Hall for such sparkling renewal flirting with heaven NOW. ~robert of mayflower

May 31st to June 2nd, Venus trine Saturn and Moon conjunct Venus, Venus trine Pluto. Good time to love what works long run, eternity, and to be loved by flowers and breeze, by little things of life. Take a breath, let go of a breath, try to appreciate, be thank full, feel the love and lucky divine overture of infinitely divine possibility.

June 3rd New Moon triggers us into summer time fun ~ intensified and critical days for good or ill fortune, wilder or crazier, highly charged or whacked are the June3,8, 9, 10, 14, especially the 15 to 18th Wildest Beautiful or dumb crazy Full Moon time, 18, 19, 21, 24, 27 too.

June 4-5th Mercury enters Cancer stirring a little more mental aggressiveness and feisty provoking as Moon conjoins Mars. Think first before speaking, acting. Be kind, patient for big view. Look for how we can all make it to heaven, a more enlightened kinder state of consciousness. Much debate over what is right, moral, good or bad (so called), with undercurrents of forcefulness and lack of freedom, seek bigger truths to hold us.

June 6-7 (influencing on through June 20th) Mars transit conjunct USA Sun and square Saturn giving increased tension to all geopolitical hotspots, shaky stock markets (into mid June), and danger of being too assertive, aggressive, mouthy, forceful. Good time for yoga, meditation, retreat, gardening, bodywork, outdoors exercise, time to make healthy rhythm and harmony balance of work and play.

June 8th Venus enters Gemini lasting into first week of July making for fickle ever changing inclinations for pleasure, love, fun, joy, relating. Gemini tries to see both sides and more often than not gets torn down the middle and beat up from trying to make everyone happy, or taking one side versus other. Seek the middle way or stillness beholding tension of opposites for higher possibilities.

History doesn’t repeat, it just gets worse, or perhaps better for a moment; but the same issues~ freedom, love, truth, and will we survive the idiots, persists.
~robert of mayflower

June 9th nasty Sun square Neptune making for lost in space, feelings, dumb chit, draining relatives and friends? Or is it spiritually meaningful but you’ve been here too many times and know the end of the movie? Time to try new mystic experience and voyage, perhaps a leap to new spaces and places. Fools are about to waylay you? Now time in coming week to reimagine your future, wake up now, and rewrite past as a fragmented self seeking wholeness. Read Rudolf Steiner’s Path of Self Knowledge Book and talk about with friends. Get a Mind, the heart will love you.
Spiritual adventurers are about to voyage to new land, opportunity, and insight capable of changing this world for the good. Tendency to over do it and exaggerate one’s craziness or fears or neurosis, or dream fantasy. June into July is a time to fix, retool, rewrite, and renew hopes for better shinier futures, song, heart and soul.

My Soul. I summon to the winding ancient stair;
Set all your mind upon the steep ascent,
Upon the broken, crumbling battlement,
Upon the breathless starlit air,
Upon the star that marks the hidden pole;
Fix every wandering thought
~Yeats, Self and Soul.

***June 14th morning Mars opposes Saturn (after Mars trine Neptune over night (2:12 AM, EST). (affects now into june 20th) Yep, this is a doozy! Astro Astral preview of what’s to come in coming weeks and particularly in January 2019 when Saturn conjunct Pluto!? Early warning shots. More threats of one-sided negotiations based on ‘one-up-manship’, my way or the yr lost highway? Tensions flare and threats of conflict economics or war? Fake War? Fake news? Fake remade old mud pies? Aggressive hasty moves could turn ill will into shadows of dark invaders, Darth Vaders. Time to make a Hero of your self and grow spiritual wings? All depends on one’s purity of mind and courage for higher hearty truths and acts of love. Difficult time for stock markets and geo-political peace making. Danger of sudden endings, weird strange turns of events, illness and sense of finality for some, loss of state or power, lack of recognition. Need for patience and long term view, honest good work and statemanship, staying the course of good true beautiful, honest and upright, compassionate and loving. Good time to attempt to comprehend inner reality that love and truth hold the world together. See Steiner’s ‘Three Fold Commonwealth’ ideas of freedom of thinking, equality in heart/feelings, and brother sister family wisdom of economics, sharing.

*** OUCH! With Mars coming to oppose Pluto on June 20th this is a most dangerous time (week before and after). Take care not to provoke others to rash reactions based on fear, need, insecurity, or forcefulness. Compassion, Compassion, Compassion! Some experience dealing with overwhelming facts/powers/force, while others sense overwhelming feelings and inner double dealing, emotions and notions for happiness and survival disappearing. Good time to deepen one’s mind stream. Have you read Marion Woodman, old friend of mine who really understands healing the inner person. See her Pregnant Virgin, or Addicted to Perfection, or Leaving the Father’s House. Also see Robert Johnson books HE and SHE!!!.
Cardinal Signs Capricorn, Libra, Cancer, Aries are affected the most (especially born 9th to 18th). Some feel crucified and in need of resurrection and new Easter/Passover, transcendence. Time to wisely decide what kind of future you really need and want. What next life, this life, one truly needs for fulfillment or accomplishment. Real need for wisdom and loving insight here, or is it time to shut up, wait it out. Avoid major confrontation unless your higher self really really knows what its doing. Long term effects from wrong behaviour at this time may taint the future. So beware. Mars can be mean, aggressive, rough in speech or in harsh mean or violent acts. With such aspect in sky, its troublesome difficult time in weather, politics, economics, job, personal relationships and more and much wisdom compassion patience needed. Need for a politics of wisdom compassion, political and virtuous correctness, and right thinking avoiding emotions taking one over. Take care not to speak harmful words, people are really reactive these dazed days. Mars/Saturn/Pluto reveals deeps places needing healing and emotional support. Good and ‘Bad’ things have trouble ending or reforming anew. Good time for magicians of healing, gardening, yoga, meditation disciplines, patience and perseverance in higher truths and love.

June 16-17 Midsummer’s dream or Full Moon Fool? Making it or breaking it? Falling apart or falling into the holy heart again?
This is major Reality Check for most. A reality investment or bet on your future self, overcoming your past self? One’s (or other’s) lower self, perhaps beast animal appetite self, dual with the higher angelic true self? Do you need a new dream? A new vehicle or ride to higher reality? destiny? a spiritual soul re~adjustment? Danger Rangers all round, negativity abounds, time to lay low and pray unless Prometheus found to bring light to day and brighten dark places in your life! Bad guys aren’t evil, they are just dumb, ignorant, addicted, confused, hurt wanting to hurt, stupid. Still, wisdom and higher knowledge need apply the healing touch. Love Truth needs to rush to the rescue. Be still and know. OM AH HUM, may human beings hear here their deepest voice, highest star, simplest prescence.
Mars opposes Saturn/Pluto midpoint. Hard to drive through walls, much wisdom compassion needed to gently give rise to the goddess wisdom love and truth. Such aspect makes for cops and robbers mentality, a good guys bad guys at odds, lots of confrontational weirdness as well as need for long term Good time, but bit late, to rid self of wrong friends, non virtuous or not your destiny orientation people. Good to be alone if not in the company of angels. Need for more compassionate view. Need for peace and love at Buddha Christ Mani Manas level. When ArcAngels arrive, heaven descends and all hell breaks loose as las few weeks may have revealed. We seem to live in a Bosch Painting or one of Rudolf Steiner’s Apocalypse Revelations talks. (See Mayflower Bookshop and Rudolf Steiner Archives).
Also! Mercury trine Neptune, Mercury oppose Saturn, Jupiter square Neptune, Moon conjunct Jupiter with Full Moon in late Sagittarius on 17th June. Idealists and dreamers manifest destiny and make life long friends or suddenly start to wake up to need for real change and real friends that last in our spirit souls, at the least! Such aspects this whole month into July/August make for ‘dreams come true’ or ‘dreams get crushed’ and shocked into more true down to earth reality and day to day needs. Here may be lots of noise and over excitement. panic driven times perhaps. Possible major pollution and disinformation, reformation, death and rebirth scenarios like crazy, weird weather exotically beautiful in parts and crazy go crazy wildly destructive in other parts. Weather by the way going to extremes like most folks mind and feelings. Full Moon June 17th time (give or take a week) indicating possibility of major loss, deaths of infamous and famous, final conclusions, a sense of ‘no going back’. Sense for some of deep crisis this month, ultimate face off, humble pie stuff. Need for long term humility, wisdom, insight patience, and on demand for higher spiritual virtue holy heart mind. Such aspects may also indicate further dramatic weather and war zone activities, vicissitudes in stock markets round world, giving many a sense of need for change as well as apocalyptic warnings that times are a’changing. After all, scientists around the world recently predicted the world to end for human life by 2050. Long ago Newton predicted this !!! We need a new way of thinking, feeling, willing, living, loving, finding truth, higher truth, in each other!. Also new scientific facts on plastic in the rain, food chain, water soil garden… one knows long term health effects.
Venus in Gemini indicates much love outpouring for situation, event, or person; as well as slow but sure rise of a woman to power wise smarts and position. With Moon conjunct Jupiter also in the geo-cosmic planetary geometry, whoever is to be a major woman player for presidency begins to show her face and rise. Maybe a number of em!
Strangely enough at end of June into July Mrs Melania Trump has Uranus transit conjunct her natal Sun! Is this divorce or renewal of vows? Indication of trouble in the crib or the crib just turned into a new ride? A reflection of temporary drop in economy or revamping and ready for higher roller coaster ride? Is this a sudden new positive event horizon for her? New book or enterprise to throw her into limelight? Is she the distractor factor or thrown off the horse. Is she coming into her own unique power or loss of such? With Uranus to also trine her Moon, big good things are up as well as a bit shocking events. Is it increased drama and huge change, transformation, of day to day, place and circumstance? Astrology aspects have higher and lower octave that each of us as individuals out of freedom must attune ourselves to ~ destiny or fate. Right or wrong turn, karma or destiny; we each sing the key to which song.
With the trine aspects , one would think she will have sweet outcome no batter what, and may have some pleasant surprises and new presentations for public, new look, new gifts, new view.
Many aspects in sky indicate the intensity of the transformative times. All aspects have a higher and lower octave of possible expression depending on the quality of motive and intention as well as the ability and intelligence of individuals involved. This month into next much karma and dharma being activated for serious change and rearrangement of musical chairs. These days history is in the making. May it be good true beautiful for all of us.

June 18th Saturn trine Neptune, mercury conjunct Mars, and Moon occulting or eclipsing Saturn. Security and ideals try to meet heart and mind in soul of it all. Now is powerfully real time. Folks more easily honest and sharing what they feel, need, and dream. In their own view, what happening, abounds in art, words, thoughts, actions. A giving of serious bottom lines with high ideals at stake. For many these days a further proof we need an angel arrives for real (loving kindness, virtue and noble truth) coming back into every day life in every way possible in every place in the world.
With transit of Uranus conjunct Venus in chart of NY Stock Exchange on June18-19th ~ stocks and markets could be in for more wild rides and dangerous time. Avoid gambling or drawing lines in the sand, ultimatums or dictates. Be creative and free, give others freedom you yourself desire. Be creative again.

June 19th Mercury oppose Pluto, Moon occult Pluto, Mars oppose Pluto. Hopefully here is where justice prevails, egotism is put in check, lies exposed, compassion wins over ignorance and delusion or lack of love and truth. Hopefully we find truth love compassion to hold and carry us all here to better life more noble of character. Share! Jealousy is loving someone for who you want them to be, not who they are. Compassion is wanting someone to not suffer, love to be happy, wishing enlightenment seems best. Such aspects have a sense of deadline, completions, finality, end of the line, endings and new beginnings. Scapegoating and blaming others for one’s own poor choices or wrong doings won’t work here. Poor choices tends to backfire or bind one to sorrow. Study and learn, who am I? What is the Self. See HPB’s Key to Theosophy or Steiner’s Road to Self Knowledge, Manly Hall’s Secret Teachings of All Ages, Hermes’ Divine Pymander, or Osho’s Book of Secrets. A real need here for understanding of other, working with others, not demonizing or justifying. Those willing to learn earn degrees to real futures.

June 21 Summer Solstice, sun goes into Cancer and Neptune goes retrograde. Ok, right when reality and more true facts appear now many attempt to resuscitate the corpse of broken dreams and past hopes. The past and/or future tend to distract many from present needs and opportunities. Be present, be still, heart listening to space within without. Be the truth , live the life, love the eternal whispering in all of us.

June 23rd venus opp Jupiter gives impulse to be around people who support even a pretense to happiness. Over indulgence can be an issue here. June 24th Venus square Neptune wants an idealistic fantasy of past and/or future to escape the present. Avoid sweets weakening clear perceptions. Art, music, poetics strong as love here.

June 26-27 Mercury enters Leo and Sun sextile Uranus, moon conjunct uranus. Urge to make something new happen that is smarter, quicker, more honestly upbeat and higher octave. demiUrge Genius at work these days to enliven, awaken, and yes forsaken what don’t work.

July 2nd Solar Eclipse at 10 Cancer on USA Sun and Mick Jagger’s ex Jerry Hall’s Sun Sign. Oops! Time for Mick Jagger to have another hit song? or leave the scene suddenly?! Next two weeks dangerous time to overplay oneself or to provoke idiots, madmen, and premie pirates of genius but false futures. Temptation this week and next to make old dead self walk the plank into larger oceans of possibility and hope. Need for nourishment of the soul to enliven spirit these weeks.
July 16th Lunar Eclipse also affecting USA Sun. July could prove a very intense (good or tough) time for politics, stock market jitters, home relations, quick rise or fall, from or to, fame, fortune, power, well being, right relations, and name of one’s angel. Some feel ‘eclipsed’ or cut out of something, others feel they are finally connecting, hooking up, with destiny, futurity, healthier happier wiser heartier matters.

July 11th Mars square Uranus. Anger and aggressive moves cause strong reactions and quick storms, or does higher bravado and courageous truth raise the inner standard of living a virtuous life? Avoid unnecessary travel, risk, investments, or gamble. Patience needed to avoid argument or storm. If procrastinating, now may be the time to act. Be gentle wise loving kind. No force. Sudden news jolts perspectives. Avoid negative emotions these last days and next. Genius and humor have timing, keep your inner spirit soul song in heart for wings to grow into good true futures.

July 16th Lunar Eclipse moon occults saturn and pluto making for more repressive or severe emotions and weather; extremely hot or cold in various parts.

August 11th Jupiter goes direct making things, people events look forward motion like. Many future plans enacted.

August 15 Full Moon 22 Aquarius. Freedom and security controls both vie for attention. Freedom and necessity work to harmonize coming days.

Aug 26 to 29th Venus trine Uranus, Mars trine Uranus, Sun trine Uranus and New Moon on 30th. Love and truth attempt a marriage here, good time to make promises worth keeping. Working for peace and love, creativity and heavenly estate. Positive spirited time for most.

If one presents a public lecture about spiritual science or anthroposophy, then one is forced to take into account the inability to take in what is offered, by the contemporary world, one must be very much aware of this limited ability. One has to be clearly conscious of the fact that in our time, although there is an influx of insights streaming in from the spiritual world, insights which are necessary for humankind today, it is very difficult nowadays to be uninhibited in taking these truths in. Most people who are not well prepared to receive it will experience the deeper spiritual-scientific truths as a shock, as something which appears as fantastic or as a dream.

Major Astrological Moments in July,
Three in August 2018.

“There is no one or two party in spirituality and truth. There is Religion, Philosophy, Science; Art and Culture, truth seeking, and reliability or face; there is Spirit, Soul, Body, and all three need to show up to protect each other and flower each other in loving kindness, compassion and truth. There is no one party unless you’re the one having it. In that case, have compassion for yourself.”
~robert of mayflower

The Asteroid Juno conjunct Uranus in Taurus and thirty degrees from Chiron early July may precipitate minor stirs but not shaken moments in the modern psyche of wanting things secure and regulated yet free and open. Impulses to be unique, colorful, and maverick emerge by those usually tame and docile. Need for greater security of mind soul spirit rather than just externals perhaps. Sudden creative urges to restructure, update, beautify, and kiss the moment as it flies by.

Only a miserable mind thinks of the past, an escapist the future; without the present, being fully present, there is no real future to go nor past to become wise by. Being present in the present, being here now, awake, aware, one sees what the past has created and the future holds and foretells. Be here Now, start there. If you can’t see the problem, you can’t fix it. Show up for your self and world, start there. Stop dreaming, wake up! ~robert of mayflower

July 3rd-4th the Sun hits opposing midpoint of Saturn and Pluto, transformative encounters press for positive change. Such aspect possibly contributing cause of weather extremes around the world, our midwest (and elsewhere) heat wave with heavy flashes of stormy rain here and there. Fire and Water taking turns in the extremes around world. Positively its bringing the light of the Sun to real problems affecting us all. The Sun wants light and love, Saturn and Pluto represents the denial of truth and love, or the WORK NEEDED to implement and manifest love and truth. Its also indicative of the desperation of the poor or down trodden in search of true light, education, ascent of consciousness and life resources. Most challenged to root deeper and reach out to grow in new ways, the most affected now and in week to come are those Signs/Houses/Planets in Cancer, Capricorn, Libra, Aries born between June 25 to July 16, Sept. 26 to Oct. 16, Dec. 25 to Jan 15, and March 25th to April 14. Strong sense of bottom line and far reaching goals now. Avoid making ultimatums or dictating too narrow a view. Be sure to have your facts right, live the life as emulation model. Leaving others free to discover for themselves possibilities and alternatives will help oneself be free. Yet, now is a time one should be clear about one’s needs and goals and not force it on others, but work on it oneself! Such aspects can make for stress at work, or push for new decision making. Some just hide or patiently wait it out for better opportunities. Good for catching up with one’s personal life, health, exercise, cleaning, ridding oneself of unwanted burdens or things not going anywhere. Or is it renewed time of learning to educate or carry oneself to right result or outcome. Currents stresses or concerns reach either a breaking point or resolution and turning point now into July 12th Solar Eclipse and on to July 25-27 Lunar Eclipse. A crisis of power, a need to use right action not force, a call to deeper wisdom and compassion, patience and generosity in the face of limited resource to deal with situations. A need to work with others for common wealth goals and better futures.
July 2rd to 8th the Sun in Cancer makes Grand Trine to Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. July 3-4th Moon in Pisces adds to configuration. Truly this Sun/Moon in water adding to Jupiter/Neptune makes for some beautiful days and heart felt ways in many a place and space in time. Sun in this grand trine presently on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Jupiter while transit of Jupiter trine her natal Jupiter helping surprise victory in New York defeating ten term incumbent. Alexandria is a political activist bottom’s up for the poorer average person and may be sending a signal for what’s to come in some politics. Mexico’s new President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, a former leftist mayor of Mexico City also shares in this astrological mindset with his Scorpio sun trine his Uranus in Cancer. Jupiter will be constructively and positively stirring his future work and aims.
This watery grand trine great for weaving one’s dreams and deeper needs, goals, desires, into workings of every day little things. Now is the time to beautify and care for the little things of life, so to support the big things coming.

July 5th to 11th. Mercury oppose Mars, Sun trine Neptune, Jupiter goes Direct (on 10th). Intellect vs. instinct, intelligent ethics vs animal appetite, selfish motive and rights vs. what is right to do for achieving the ‘most for the many’; education and bottoms up. Or are you awaiting the trick? or trickle down? Or still, waiting to be shot up, go to mars, win the lottery, suddenly zen yourself awake without any real work or effort? With Jupiter in trine to USA natal Sun, look for strong moves by ‘powers that be’ affecting world economics and deep pocket world view. A struggle for what is fair, co-equal justice and opportunity to grow, learn, enrich may be at stake. A Fight of truth, ego over collective, or collective usurping individual? Hopefully honest dialogue or debate. Fixed Signs/planets/houses of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus and Scorpio affected the most in trying to make everything matter for the good. Being too fixed or addicted to one’s ways no matter what can blind subtle changes in the subtle body and turn of events. Many water signs keep dreaming out and avoiding being present , thus impotent for real change. If one is dreaming, they are still asleep. I think Dylan said that long ago in his way. Selfishness kills the ideal and dream, or does it manifest the higher ideal. Dreams and ideal fight and work to be realized, manifested, incarnated. Discursive mind disrupts the wave and day, wandering mind fades fades away into dust and vapor. Few find lasting peace these daze. Yoga and research good at this time, as well as active listening and looking at what is going on, imagining source, presence, and where things going. For this last, one needs hold very still and look inward and out. In these hot days, fasting, lots water, chewing well, walks, taking things lightly, and fierce silence, listening from the heart to the heart, and back to the heart, very necessary..

“In politics, sex, money, and love; being fooled is no alibi for impatience, laziness, lack of presence and awareness, and lack of wisdom and willingness to learn. The lack of the willingness to learn is the worse dog crime. blessings….”
-robert of mayflower

July 12 Super Moon New Moon. Solar Eclipse with Sun oppose Pluto Magic, July 14th; Venus trine Saturn too. Some find their true Star, others fall off the wagon, lose their land marks and roots, some emotionally compost or let go of past, looking for renewal, better opportunity, re-imagining job, home, friends, family. Sense of death and rebirth, or turning point. A sense of a need for new leadership or higher intelligence to guide. Compassion without the wisdom of many years, many lives, gets too wet soggy emotional, or too dry hard and brittle. Here light in dark places may emerge, and truth be known of secret dirt behind doors, but also egomaniacs of power and taking the law into their own hands is danger. Here need for immense wisdom and ultimate compassion to protect the little ones and move on into brighter future than dark ego selfishness. None-the-less, heavy power plays and major karma for both individuals and parts of the world this second half of July it seems. Good time for attempts at renewing and updating, finding true root and ground.

Compassion isn’t an ideal, it is a universal law just as real as karma and reincarnation. Those who can’t see are short sighted. -robert of mayflower

July 24th to 26th, Venus oppose Neptune, Sun square Uranus, Mercury goes retrograde on July 25th at 23 degrees Leo back to 11 Leo on August 19th when Mercury goes direct. Fixed and Mutable Signs especially feel need for a love and truth, reliable facts, to base a future as well as day to day reality on. False imaginations come to stare some in the face. Highly idealistic escapades endanger themselves from limited or too selfish a view, emotional propensities to gamble love away. Or is it revelations of higher truth or immense feelings needing to taking a leap into bigger waters of possibility and potential? Luciferic impulses to escape may screw up practical realities and immediate needs at hand. On the other hand, some need to escape and now is the time for a zest for higher truths, real freedom, and a love carries us all. The way to the future is in the present tense. Be here Now!

“Whether man die in his bed
Or the rifle knock him dead,
A brief parting from those dear
Is the worst man has to fear.”
W.B. Yeats

July 27th Lunar eclipse, Sun oppose Mars, Moon conjunct Mars, Venus trine Pluto. High stress upset or anger vs strong need to change and hang on to deeper love or concerns for family/friends/loved ones. A deeper love prevails but not without a cost. Early degrees of fixed signs Taurus, Scorpio, Leo and Aquarius the most affected (see your own chart for what planets and houses). War and crime, violence and anger, egotism and acting out of selfishness, rather then what good for all of us, each and all. Time to jettison negative vibrations in self and others. Time to have compassion for ignorance and delusion and move on. Danger of over aggressive assertiveness and shoot em up mentality. A real need to both control guns and educate animal instincts. Many now feel strong urge to make change for the better. If over confronted by externals, take long walks, exercise, yoga, healthier diet, chew well, eat slow, don’t react, reflect and study. Avoid stressful situations and places. Such aspect can be good for bold courageous heroics, but higher power and virtue, divine provocation need be present. Prayer and meditation, gardening and yoga, lighter diet good antidote to all July’s crazy aspects for chaos or accident, explosive change. Peace and joy start with inbreathe to the heart of hearts, love and truth.

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.

August 19th Jupiter trine Neptune, on 25th August Sun trine Uranus and Saturn, Grand Trine. Act as if redeeming the past, awakening the present, and creating far futures. You may be having a heavenly time, tell me after fall equinox lasting love you find. You may be deluded and dreaming again, yet hold your heart to each and every other heart as friend, what goes around comes round again. Many are so deluded now they won’t really wake up till next lifetime. Others see the big love and light and plow on to higher destiny and calling. Many prophetic dreams come around these times. Unfortunately many scoundrels and false dreams too. Be still and know, keep a journal, there is no religion higher than truth, no science deeper than love, no art or job bigger than becoming fully human, grace grit and onwards.

The economic view should be ther brotherhood of existence, family and home. The religious view should be also the cultural artistic and ecological view. The political commonwealth should inculcate with it the ethics (what is right to do) and the rights of all mankind, spiritual equality and practical everyday justice, education, for all.

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.

Astrology Now!
from robert of Mayflower Bookshop
“Keep your face towards the sunshine
and shadows will fall behind you.”
-Walt Whitman
Venus/Uranus conjunct in sky thurs. March 28th makes for wild creative upsurges in eccentric love, miraculous kisses, emotional flings and insights, heart revelations, sudden happenings of spirit, sudden meetings, significant sense of being touched by higher power, sudden spontaneous meetings or partings. For some new love, for others roller coaster of oceans of emotions. Quick but short lived encounters needing till mid april to make certain. Certainly the news will be humming with everything from Jen and Brad secretly meeting, Megan Markle and Prince Harry twists, to more of the President’s Women friends and mavericks, and many a more love tryst or risky behaviour . Venus Uranus aspects can bring about quick changes, either upsetting or joyful, concerning love, the arts, kids, creative pursuits, sudden purchases of beauty, or for beautifying, daring even. For the most part its a fun up aspect, playful and robust with vigor and enthusiastic enthusiasm. Cardinal and Fire astrology signs affected the most.
The more troubling time and aspects for rough politics, weather, meanness and cold, cold shoulders and hard facts comes to the mutable and cardinal and fire signs/planets/houses this March 29th when Sun squares Saturn (serious bottom lines, forceful measures, authoritative play for power or law, karmic separations, risky behaviour; turn in the weather). This last aspect plays into Full Moon Saturday March 31st with Moon square to mars/saturn, not a good time to take risk here; authoritative troubles or troubles with authority. Here patience and compassion win, need to override anger and emotional reaction, fighting spirit with wisdom love. Then April 2nd, Mars conjunct Saturn lays even more heavy news and ultimatums, more serious actions or reactions making more work for many. Rough endings, for some rough beginnings these last and next days. Delays and slow progress here. The whole last week may feel like a funeral for some, for others good old hard work and the attempt to either take down walls blocking communication, or the making of walls and slow progress. Mercury most retrograde square mars and saturn April 4-5th drives the strong and hardy to persist. Hopefully even though much tough or ‘bad’ news with last week here, this aspect may bring out facts and truths eventually clarifying many things. Retrograde Mercury though has a way of keeping things unfinished, or in need of going over again later. Many initiatives of last few months need review and good look over if one is to continue. Look for rough quick turnover of winter into spring New Moon April 15th when Mercury goes direct and April 17th when Saturn goes retrograde. By then much clarity and clear vision arrives for things to move forward, and spring to truly start, star, and arrive. Spring fever and renewed love in the air in spite of it all around April 17th with Venus aspects!
“And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on
Earth’s dark breast rose from the dreams of its wintery rest.”
-Percy Bysshe Shelley

Robert of Mayflower’s Astrological and Spiritual News and Views July 2013


Voyager 1 surfs edge of heliosphere, the edge of solar system;

earth’s heat record being broken in south west USA; many have

gone beyond themselves and back in their search to know the Self,

love and truth who we are. Astrologically this is posed to be

an unforgettable amazing summer for truth’s revelation, insight and joy,

self discovery and opportunity for Higher Love and happiness for all!


“There is no end, just new beggings of the heart

to find itself, the unavoidable poetry of love.” -rt


“Every heart and mind is a garden, a friend.” -rt


  • Jupiter is conjuncting USA natal Venus now. Is America about to fall in love with itself and the world again? Big year for love, marriage, and babies perhaps? Real estate values, and the values of everything and everybody up? In the coming year of 2014, Uranus will square the USA Sun, and Pluto will then oppose it. This year and the next couple of years are a critical time for a re-awakening of high and noble road of ethics and higher self. Time for renewed aspirations for freedom love truth. Time for re-inspiration of the original founders high vision of peace and love for all. Time for renewed philosophy and dream enabling America, the USA, to reawaken and grow in world spirit, strong and noble. Unifying spiritual principle and ethical philosophy of higher love and truth, responsible compassionate politics and economic opportunity for all is once again needed for a healthy future. Each of us is called upon to live our highest dream. These are trying times for both the USA and the World and a new inner impulse of love and truth stirs within us. Pluto in Capricorn will oppose the USA Sun while Uranus squares it. Selfless truth and an all encompassing love/compassion is called for top to bottom. Pluto normally is thought of bringing a death and rebirth type experience as well as a youthful spirit of selfless courage. Perhaps it is the world awakening to a need for healthy environment and lifestyle. Its negative side is selfishness, dictating authority, and the shadow side or plutocracy in all modern materialistic affairs. Uranus is lightening changes and flashes of genius, originality, and creative freedom. Its negative side is going through changes without anything really changing. A sense of hysteria and panic without the calm wisdom to channel new crisis opportunities into positive change. Danger of change without any true inner transformation or realisation renew. With the Scorpio rising USA chart, Saturn transiting is about to conjunct the Asc again end of July into August making for one possibly very hot severe summer for some. Or is it a tightening of the belt, a more disciplined, less obese and less ‘over the top’ overdoing America. The grand trine in water signs coming has brought much needed rain in parts of the country (eastern half) possibly leading to a good food harvest in such parts this summer. Jupiter is trining Saturn making for good economy. These are amazing times. In the Gemini Rising Chart for the USA, Uranus mid July here is almost hitting the square to natal USA Sun. Such aspect now and into next year depicts a sudden rise of new stars and leaders, as well as a sudden fall or change at the top of many a biz and enterprise. Uranus astrologically calls for strong change, a need to go to the next higher level or get crunched or take a fall. A need to do something, not just talk or feel about it. Uranus can bring new discoveries and new forms of energy, energetics. It can also bring quakes and storms, sudden changes and shocks, quick change. Pluto in Capricorn coming to oppose USA natal Sun in Cancer resists change; but calls for need to keep water, air, and food pure, clean, and healthy. A polluted environment and cluttered myriad channels/media and minds may be karma catching up to us, calling for a new simplification of everything. Pluto is associated with scandals and many abound these days. This could also be an influence in fluctuating gold prices. Pluto represents degrading or devaluing gold, the golden sun. Pluto’s opposition to USA’s Sun here represents devaluation or downward trend in gold prices. In 2014, it may portend of major turning points in history on many a front. As Jupiter, expansive energies, conjuncts USA Sun late August, we may see a very positive rebound and ascent in many a place; happiness and a sense of renewed prosperity, family, friendships. The Pluto opposition becoming exact in 2014 may yet tell the fuller story with history making events. July and August are astrologically attuned to give many an opportunity for love and peace, prosperity and social fun; but keep your eye on end of July and around August 7th for quirks and turn-a-rounds in the summer of peace and love plans.
  • July 1st Venus square Saturn, love crunch or searching for small pieces to the puzzle. A need to love and be loved. Cold reality and sober truth contest with the big dream or future plans. Sun oppose Pluto attempts to heal with compassion and mother love that which previously was dark. New light on old problems. Extremes in the weather, hot and/or wet. Sadness or melancholy when not aligned to higher principles of wisdom love. A sense of death and rebirth, endings and new beginnings. A need for patience when considering long-term goals and what is trying to birth into the future. Jealousy or loving another for who you want them to be may thwart higher aims. Be the love you desire, live the truth you see, be the creative spark untiring in the higher self to free in self and other. Help others be happy to improve your own happiness. A sense of inevitable contests with the ability to ‘be here now’.
  • July 4th Sun square Uranus, Determination to be free no matter what. Sense of   quaking moments and giving the shake, shake ups and hot bake outs, solar flares and vacant stares, all compete or flow into a new intelligence rising from the hearts and minds of those living into the future with compassion, love, truth. With progressed Sun squaring USA natal Sun and the transits of Uranus and Pluto afflicting USA natal Sun in sign of Cancer; many challenges for change are upon us. Either rise to the higher level of intelligence and freedom, truth and compassion; or face world change cast upon us.
  • July 6th Gemini Moon conjunct Mars and later in evening Moon slips into Cancer to conjunct Jupiter making for highly energetic day and fun evening for food, friends, and expansive visionary feeling experience blending both mind and heart.
  • July 8th New Moon in Cancer, Saturn direct, Moon occults Mercury with Sun conjuncting Mercury next day on the 9th making for windy minds and perhaps airways, weather; changing moods and a wish to better oneself and one’s environment. What works and what does not work takes front stage. A strengthening of bonds of friendship and family.
  • July 13th Mars enters Cancer Sign. Aggressive moves forward while dragging that which is soon to be cut off? New initiatives about to hook up with positive future? Personal aims drive for fulfilment and accomplishment. Wanting to matter. Avoid use of force or over-aggressive modality. Impulsive, passionate, excitable meets cool calm collected. This is a month of unusual, yet improved, conversation and experiment when it comes to love and the creative arts. An impulse to improve business and home life or change lifestyle and day-to-day habits.
  • July 17th Uranus goes retrograde, some changes put off for a while, on hold and waiting? Feeling need to change before forced into change? Jupiter trines Saturn and Neptune making grand trine in water signs encouraging many to continue to grow with or without past frameworks and structures. New impulses for a new architecture of the future. Wanting to be happy in new growing ways. Many beautiful feelings for life arise, renewed sense for healing processes, lifestyle, and properties. Good for long range travel and future planning; new impulses for moving into better futures while redeeming past mistakes. Healing of past while positively moving into brighter futures. These aspects portend of renewed interest in world peace and harmony, family and culture making. The grand trine in water signs awakens one’s intuitive feelings on a grand scale. Many opportunities for inner and outer growth appear this month. Great aspect for creating and meeting new possibilities for furthering one’s dreams. Keep yourself on track with singular goal in mind for greater result; yet this aspect can for some can accomplish many things at once.
  • July 19th Saturn trine Neptune, practical realism, realistic dreams, manifesting the ideal, romancing the stone. Realistic steps toward manifesting the ideal, as well as realising the more eternal spiritual potential in the every day, every moment. Doing what’s right from a higher ethical motive. Negative side is wanting to escape or hide from higher truth or more authentic self. Showing up for your own life and a willingness to continue learning what life directly offers, teaches, is key to spiritual and material growth here.
  • July 20th wild weather into Full Moon 22nd, or even 24th, 26th, 27th, 31st, or is it just a need to wear leather? Good for stripping mind of fear and distraction, and with pure intent and naked soul present oneself to the world. Mercury goes direct, making for quick decisions and taking clear action on such. A feeling that one can’t wait any longer to make certain decisions. Mars trine Neptune and Saturn (grand trine in effect) pushes the envelop of accomplishing and getting things done, as well as initiating new initiatives. Moon in Capricorn makes for practical gains, asserting oneself and goals, aims and directives. Difficult Mars aspects influencing last 6 days of the month warrant taking extra security in travel, debate, contesting, and controversy. Avoid anger and negative emotions. Much patience and easy going compassionate approach to matters at hand needed here.
  • Full Moon July 22nd Mars conjunct Jupiter triggering grand trine Jupiter/Saturn/Neptune; avoid exaggerating, partying too hard, over indulgence, over asserting oneself, or taking on too much. Enjoy life, everything in moderation. Jupiter goes over board, Saturn wants to define limits of growth. Venus enters Virgo perfection in both wear and tear, and inner feelings. Sun enters Leo. Moon squares Saturn, Saturday Sun squares Saturn. Extremes in weather round the world.
  • July 24th Moon oppose Venus, on Friday 26th Venus oppose Neptune sextile Saturn. Who do you love? False dreams cut off or abandoned, or are you jumping into the summer dream and melting like ice cream in Phoenix. Avoid eating too yin or over acidic foods. Avoid indulgence in idiot pleasures. Good aspect for the arts, music, creating beauty and lasting happiness. Balloons of illusion and false dreams may pop this weekend; for some new dreams begin where old ones end.
  • July 27th Mars oppose Pluto, boiling point, avoid anger and use of force. Much need for forgiveness or compassion this day. Sun square Saturn, mourning or sad event. strange weather shifts. Mars here triggers the Uranus square Pluto…into 31st giving us a birds eye view of bigger issues confronting the world in the past few years and next. An aspect challenging us to transform the unworkable past into workable futures. A need to let go of what can’t be fixed or changed, and a challenge to rediscover ourselves anew in harmony with a future calling upon us to grow in new ways of wonder and love and truth. Avoid unnecessary travel or argument for a few days.
  • July 30th Venus in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn. Good aspect for realising what you truly love and acting upon it. Working for what one loves, needs, and wants. Aligning love with long view in mind, practical workable relationships with lasting value, quality, and appropriateness. Less is more here, simple is complex, exact appropriate golden mean rather than exacting. All in good time, all in right measure, little things can express more eternal inner treasures.
  • July 31st Mars in Cancer square Uranus in Aries triggers bravado, courage, honest reckoning; as well as rash actions, anger, crazy chaotic testosterone warring negative emotions if not careful. This is one of those aspects where the meds backfire and patience is easily lost. Possible explosive release of tension, sudden change of direction or conclusion of events, upsets, accidents. Good for purifying, rhythmic exercise or yoga, intensifying one’s spiritual practice. Intense need for freedom and creative outlet or expression. Tendency to be premature or rash, hasty in action. Tendency to feel split in goals, bipolar in sense of self identity. Beholding the tension of opposites, meditation, long walk or right exercise and diet (more grains and greens, hearty miso soup) can ease unnecessary tensions. Such aspect precipitates need to act, secure, root, or express oneself. Good for courage and bravado when not foolhardy.
