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

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

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

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

This Weekend Full moon at end of weekend lookin up to be a cliff hanger, wild and unexpectable, unpredictable, sudden rise and fall, reversals; and perhaps wonderfully creative for some. Lots of news, extremes in weather, nature, emotions, behaviour. Some genius moments or sudden good humor may also be at play here. See more below.

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

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

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

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

Whew, blessings,

Truth and freedom is co-created in the Spirit of our deepest and furthest, intrinsic and transcendental imagination, dream, genius. Seek a ‘Spiritual Science’ of Higher Consciousness in everyday life.
Here is freedom~ There is no purpose or meaning to life, we must create such. We create meaning by distilling our experience and perceptions of the world into our own stillness listening heart. We create purpose by seeing and experiencing the ONE LIFE in all forms, the ONE Universal Mind in harmony with the feelings and thinking in all things. We find ourselves in freedom and loving kindness, compassion and creativity. Here the WORLD WORD or sense of being co-creative with self and other is born, arises in cognitive awareness.When out of freedom, truth and love meets destiny, eternal friendships are formed. Born out of sacred space and a wish for all to be happy, true relationship arises with all life, all times, all peoples and places.
In Spirit we share in divine Oneness, in Soul both heaven and earth awaken divine wisdom, in Body we partake, share, sacrifice, rebirth, honoring all forms as expression of a deeper divine union, melody, and harmony. May Peace come to the world.
~robert of mayflower

Aug 26 – Pres.Trump transit of Saturn opposes progressed midheaven, Bottoming out at the White House? Or is it a turning point, possibly indicating a positive turn after difficult times? A rising up, once past this bottoming? Is it laying new foundation, finding right ground to stand on? Possible low point though for now. On the heels of mars square saturn in sky, sense of authoritarian progress? A weighed down feeling? A lack of silence to think? Happiness when alone? Don’t worry if this doesn’t make sense, neither does the world at the moment. All astrological aspects have a higher and lower octave that each individual must find for themselves out of individual striving and struggleing for truth and freedom with higher sense of love for all life. Each is a child of God or Universal Goodness, Oneness; but it a question of cognitive awareness and capacity for acting in attunement to such.. Not everyone’s resonating with their higher octave. In time, in some lifetime , it will happen for us all. May that time come soon for the sake of the planet.
So tough aspects late august here for the Pres, but in mid Sept. N.Node and venus trine progressed Jupiter will bring him more luck in love and money and popularity. Its a race to the end it seems.

“Give up your opinions! Nothing is right
until it works One for All, All for One.” ~robert of mayflower

Aug. 27th Venus trine Neptune. Ideal love dreams us on. Good for creativity, art, and spiritual soul mating. Not good for hard line, bottom line, tough rules/laws/facts. Some dream of far away places, or escape from reality. Some actually do create alternative beautiful dream realities finding the muse, higher octaves of the good, true, and beautiful. Water Signs and houses here favored for wonderful feeling life, spiritual insights, wonder and awe, higher love.
Good aspect dreaming in the future now, loving, dreaming true, touching the ideal, finding inspiration to renew, go on, dream real. Dreams reveal secrets of each other’s soul life. Higher creativity, transcendental idealism and angelic heart inspirations possible.

Higher truths will never be found,
unless you live it, fall, rise again, try again;
then it begins to speak for itself
shining and reflecting in all the world
in and around.
~robert of mayflower

Aug 29th Mercury in Virgo trine Jupiter in Capricorn. Practical thinking can work into long term benefit, goals. Good time to practically figure out about everything! Bookkeeping, accounting, right details in conversing, sharing, facts, plans, cleaning, fixing up, who to work with or not. Good for correcting, dharma, making right connection. Thinking clear. Take care to breathe deep and work ideas into feelings and actions. Avoid over intellectually and head alone without heart. Earth Signs and houses here favored for money and luck, love and connection.

“In fact the law of karma is the most consoling law there is. Just as it is true that nothing exists without a cause, so it is equally true that nothing existing remains without its effects. I may be born in poverty and misery; my abilities may be very limited; yet whatever I do must produce its effect, and whatever I accomplish now, by way of industry or moral activity, will certainly have its effect in later lives. If it depresses me to think that I have deserved my present destiny, it may equally cheer me to know that I can frame my future destiny myself.

Anyone who really takes this law into his thinking and feeling will soon realise what a sense of power and of security he has gained. We do not have to understand the law in all its details; that becomes possible only at the higher stages of clairvoyant knowledge. Much more important is it that we should look at the world in the light of this law and live in accordance with it. If we do this conscientiously over a period of years, the law will of its own accord become part of our feelings. We verify the truth of the law by applying it.”
-Rudolf Steiner, Spiritual Science

The role of the artist is the creative genius and struggle between feelings and the divine spark, between spirit and nature, between self and other, the art and science, shared. ~robert of mayflower

The future of the world depends on each of us discerning the spark of God within all, the holy stillness of the Great Compassion as Mother within each and all, our co creative spirit and brotherly sisterhood with all life. ~Trebore Tau Bodhi

Aug. 30 Venus in Cancer oppose Pluto in Capricorn. Cardinal signs and houses challenged affected the most to have more patience and long term wisdom, working solutions to make all happier. Fire and Air signs may offer solutions. Water signs sympathetic. Aries, Capricorn, Libra need soften up their too hard take and projection on others. Conflict between home and work, feelings and clear thinking. Feeling overwhelmed by world toxicity? Overwhelming feelings and emotions without clear head light? Mend and weave, garden and clean, cook and chew well, sing and don’t yell, love little things and let big thinks and things go for a spell.
Avoid negative emotions you can’t do anything about. In trying to have compassion for self and other, hold to stillness and silent listening to the heart of the world birthing right thinking.
Change yourself to change your world round. Don’t take anything too personal. Look for the silence before and after the storm, but in the thick of it. listen to the silence at the midst of the hurricane.
The ‘higher self’ speaks through the noise and emotional chaos in the stillness permeates all.
One may have feelings of being rejected, but never reject the Higher Self, ideal, virtue, what is trying to speak from total love and truth from our deep within, everyone’s deep within!
This sometimes good aspect for research, intense communication, transformational spiritual psychology, fecundative kundalini research and experience.
Intense dreams or imaginations. Possible visit to the underworld and back. Opportunities for compassion and new learning. Happiness when alone with it all pondering wisdom of present past future.
Home/personal wishes and world/work/calling at odds perhaps.
Jealousy doesn’t work here. Letting go of attachment, need for control, negative emotions and its subsequent psycho drama, frees higher self and more spiritual calling to come in.
Deeper feelings for one’s many life times and many friends, family, close one’s, give non exclusive right perspective and freer view.
Here, fear is confession to lack of truth, lack of love, holds us all sacred. Fear is another form of egoism protecting little self, this shore only view. (See Voice of Silence by HPB). Fear is lack of love for higher self. Where truth, no fear, just going on learning, no shame nor blame, peacefully onwards.
In the news, time for more dirt on everybody without higher insight nor solution, resolution, wisdom insight how to go.
Good time to clean up one’s own mess and catch up to tomorrow today.

“The true importance of ‘Know the thyself’ is in the fact that we pursue world evolution in this way. Where is our self? It is surely not in us alone. To think that would be egotistical. It is born out of the entire cosmos, and our ascent should lead us to the point where we expand into the whole world. Self-knowledge wants to place man into the entire world, in order to show him the true meaning of the word
‘self knowledge.” -Rudolf Steiner, GA 109-111; 1909.

Sept 2nd Full Moon in Pisces, don’t take things so personal! Be the love truth you are looking for! Venus oppose Saturn and Sun trine Uranus. Feeling unloved or incapable of love. Wish to break out of feeling stuck. Such aspect makes for reality take on whether or not your head on right. Questions about of what is real love and truth, versus sex and facts. What is truth, love, lasts and nourishes us. What is not real or enlivens our spirit soul will drain us, tire us, mislead us into falsities. Discipline means learning, freedom means truth holds us all, not just ‘facts’ limited in time and space.
Sun/Uranus can make us brave of the dark, brave of the light, brave to reach out in new ways, to change creatively right now, inward out.

Sept. 4th Venus in Cancer squares Mars in Aries. Inner or Home needs contest world or job needs. Heart vs Head. Perhaps for some, stomach and animal appetite vs head light and mental desires; giving war or struggle to the heart of things.
New initiatives rile home security? Home or heart soul inner spirit demands press clearer reality to continual outer world struggle, striving, fight.
Serious energetic to come home to oneself. Then and only then, ‘other’ falls in line. Such aspect notorious for lovers fighting or having the best time of their life.

Sept. 9th Mars retrograde marks the beginning of a very nasty couple (or ‘uncoupling’couple) of months heading for the November USA Presidential Election. Lots of ups and downs with weather, markets, moods and grooves.
Or is it, everyone decides to be a buddhist and have compassion for how hard everyone tries even if we don’t all agree?
Struggles for good work, striving for ‘rights’, fighting for what one deeps right. Its now a volatile rough tough time to come to peaceful mutually beneficial agreement. Much patience and kindness needed to get through this time. Exercise, yoga, healthy habit and food, chewing good, regular sleep, helps lots.
For some, a good time to step back to find stillness, peace, the wisdom take on right action, bravado and truth. Difficult time for simple love to share, care, and dare. Tough time to simply be yourself come hell or high water. Be gentle, kind, compassionate, and inwardly daring to see the truth, patient to act.

Sept. 11th Sun in Virgo oppose Neptune in Pisces. Criticalness to a fault? Over reacting? Or terrible truths, facts, shifting view? Truth and lies get mixed up now. Actions speak louder than words. Avoid taking new steps if not totally clear in mind and heart. Nice aspect for artistic ideals, higher love, future plans. Real Truth is what holds us all, divines the divine and larger view holding us all, in the tiniest facts.
This aspect reveals clash between the ideal and the immediate practical reality. Little things and big thinks, things, of life, attempt to find harmony and communication, or clash.

Where there is no love, there is no future.
Where there is no truth, no present, no present or gift;
no divining divine Presence and holy wonder awe futurity.
~robert of mayflower

Sept. 12th Jupiter goes direct now heading for big conjunction in Aquarius with Saturn on Winter Solstice in December. Truth and Love now hold hands, meet minds, conjure sense of higher self co-creative with the times, the future. Many a magical spiritual event is in the works. Encounters with angels, higher octaves of insight and behaviour are now coming into view.

“The World Ether is a thought forming power.”
-Rudolf Steiner, April 20, 1923

Sept 17th New Moon in Virgo. Mercury squares Jupiter and Sun trines Saturn. New ideas and connections expand one’s hope for bigger life, new growth, friends and family.
Lots of new ideas to move better, more freely, into the future.
A wanting to root deeper but flower further. Lots little new thinks and things capture one’s imagination and intuition.
Teaching by example is the best. Use only constructive criticism when need be.

Sept. 19 – For Pres. Trump, Venus trine prog. Jupiter.
Happy time? Does Pres get or give a little bit of love? May indicate his happiness for a moment, or that others getting happier. This may be lucky good moment for making positive things happen for one and all. No it doesn’t mean he will win. Yet each has freedom to recreate what up and what coming.

“When the Sea is calm, all the boats look good.” ~Shakespeare

Sept 20-21st Mercury square Pluto. More bad news, stormy stuff, expresses in weather and behaviour rest of month into next here. Good for research, cleaning, clearing, ridding, turning inward, pondering in stillness with compassion and openness to learn anew. Difficult aspect to debate or get anywhere further (for most).

Compassion without wisdom knowledge insight is a gardening by night alone in need of light. ~robert of mayflower

Sept. 23 Mercury square Saturn, on 24th Mercury oppose Mars, on 25th Moon triggers Pluto/Saturn/Mercury/Mars; followed by Sept 29th Mars retrograde square Saturn making for a tough week (or two) of rough news, weather, emotions, economics, dirty fighting, and a renewed need for law and order of a higher order of wisdom truth compassion with teeth. Why does everything seem like its going backwards or retarded in growth. Why no higher truths and wisdom, higher callings of Love to arrest our divisive leanings.
Positive side of Saturn is yoga and meditation, Mars is mantra and virtuous actions brave for truth, Pluto is compassionate selflessness learning what is right for all, holy towards all, the most good for the many, sharing what one has.

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

October 1st 5:05 pm est, Full Moon in Aries.

“it is well to remember that in the last analysis, there is nothing else i the universe b3side consciousness….thus being i various states of consciousness are the only reality in the world.”
~rudolf steiner, from ‘The Fifth Gospel’

October 16th New Moon in Libra.
October 31st Full Moon on Halloween in Taurus with Sun oppose Uranus. Extra crazy day of shake ups and changed plans. Dangerous few3 days here for taking risk, or over reacting, pushing too hard. Crazy sudden events or changes, storms or exchanges shift reality once again. Sudden fall (or sudden risings) of people and events.

November 3rd Election day, Mercury goes direct from retrograde 12:50 pm making for complete zany craziness and multitudinous information about ‘what is happening’. Many a new realization, a sudden shift in outcome or plans. Mercury in Libra wants fairness and co-equality in rights, service, surrender, heart and mind.

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

December 21st Winter Solstice Sun in Capricorn 5:02 am, Moon in Pisces enters Aries at 5:32 pm. Jupiter conjuncts Saturn in Aquarius at zero degree 1:21 pm (all this after Dec. 14 Solar Eclipse at 23 degree Sagittarius!) !!! Clearly this aspect and months around it give world a sense of World Event, heaven and hell, tragedy and hope, real and surreal, awakening an individual and collective sense of spiritual identity, world karma good and bad, and either ‘in or out’ sense of the time, space, place, self.
Jupiter conjunct Saturn in air sign Aquarius, last time in Aquarius 1186 thru to 1226. This december till 2159,jupiter saturn conjunct in air signs. This time period is an opportunity to incorporate and incarnate the high ideals of the Aquarian Age coming in few hundred years time. The ideals that all humanity is one family of brothers and sisters, that freedom of the Spirit, art, free thinking, culture and religion is flowering within each individual, that social and political justice is possible, that an economics of brotherly love is possible, that an awakening to world peace and health, wisdom and compassion, truth and love for all the earth is possible.
The astrological chart for the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction winter solstice in Aquarius, set for Washington DC, reveals zero degree Taurus rising sign at midpoint of Mars/Uranus- A sense prevails at this time for intensified creative action, freedom, independence and bravado. Danger of conflict, upsets, travel troubles, accident, storm nature or man made mishap. Hopefully this aspect indicated courage and truth, sudden rise to the occasion, a raising up to higher levels of awareness, consciousness, healing, and insight: especially for earth signs (Taurus/Capricorn/Virgo). Scorpio, Aquarius, Leo will feel the pressure to rise above ego attachment and help out, do something new, to better the situation at hand.
With Sun/Mercury in Capricorn trine to the Taurus Ascendent, many folks experience divine intervention, angelic help, spiritual insight and revelation, higher virtues and spiritual potentials afoot and at work. Many folks waking up to what’s really up and what we individually and collectively can do about problems/troubles at hand.
Pluto at midheaven of jupiter/saturn chart indicates world trouble, financial fears, political conflict, collective need for change or higher attunement, compassionate action. Pluto Midheaven is an encounter with the ‘devil’ or what is called the ‘anti-Christ’. Also danger from dictators or severe authoritarians. Strong projections of guilt or shame, blame, manipulating others behaviour. The higher octave is selfless wisdom compassion for all, seeking solutions that offer the most for the many. Pluto is the alchemy of forgiveness, letting go and letting ‘God’, moving on to what one aught to be doing. A sense of ‘duty’, ‘dharma’, truth and right work freeing spirit and soul creativity, joy, fellowship.
Moon/Neptune together is Pisces portends then of many a spiritual experience as well as many a mistake on perceptions of what’s happening, what’s up. None-the-less, many a spiritual and inner to inner encounter happening around this time, and times to come. Perhaps ‘The Second Coming of Christ’ in the Etheric as Rudolf Steiner predicted, is activated this winter and coming months, years.
With Venus in Sagittarius nearing opposition to North Node in Gemini, many serious spiritually minded love connection for better futures being made.
This Jupiter and Saturn conjunct in Aquarius will have a serious affect on social cultural trends, mind sets, soul moods, and spirited happenings. Strong lasting effects for coming months, coming years.
I feel it important to be somewhat well versed in spiritual virtue minded teachings of HP Blavatsky’s Theosophy, Rudolf Steiner’s Anthroposophy, tibetan buddhism via Gelek Rimpoche, Dalai Lama, Geshe Keltsang Gyatso. Also Manly Hall, NeoPlatonism, Hermetics, Yoga, Meditation, Breathwork. Such teachings will help prepare ones mind soul heart to deal with challenges and opportunities ahead of us.

“We can note that a materialistically or monistically minded person, although knowing nothing of this experience, does have this fear in face of the spiritual world in the depths of his soul. There lives in such a person a certain antipathy to confronting the abyss that must be crossed; and to help him get past this fear, this anxiety in the soul in face of the spiritual world, the monist or materialist thinks out his theories and denies the spiritual world; this denial is nothing other than a self-induced anesthesia in face of his fear. This is the real explanation for materialism. As unsympathetic as it may sound, for one who knows the soul it is evident that in a meeting of materialistic monists, or those who deny soul and spirit, there prevails only the fear in the face of the spiritual world. One could say mockingly that fear-mongering is the basis of materialism, and although it is mocking it is nevertheless true. In materialistic literature, in the materialistic world conception, the spiritual investigator recognizes everywhere between the lines fear and anxiety in face of the spiritual world. What in ordinary life appears as materialism, however, as the soul condition present when a person is a materialist or a materialistically tinged monist, can also be present when a person arrives through definite measures at a certain spiritual vision. One can go through certain exercises in the soul and develop thereby from a more-or-less unhealthy soul condition to a more-or-less spiritual comprehension, yet one need not come by this means to a real understanding of the nature of the spiritual world. In a certain way one can carry up into the spiritual something of this fear about which one knows nothing, which has already been characterized and which underlies the materialistically minded person in the ordinary world.
If one does not grasp this connection, one can carry up into the spiritual world something that is terribly widespread in ordinary life: the love of ease of thinking, the love of ease of feeling. Fear is closely akin to love of ease, to clinging to habit. Why is man afraid of changing his situation? Because he loves his ease and comfort. This love of ease is closely related to fear. We have already described the basis for hatred; in the same way one can also say that lassitude, love of ease, are closely related to fear. One can, however, carry this love of ease up into the spiritual world. No one ought to object that human beings show no evidence of fear or love of ease, for this is again characteristic; it is characteristic that the ordinary mood of soul knows nothing of these things rooted in the subconscious. If man carries fear into the spiritual world, already having developed to the point of acknowledging the spiritual world, then an error arises in a spiritual region, an error that is extraordinarily important to consider the leaning toward phenomenalism.
People who become subject to this leaning become, rather than spiritual investigators, “specterseers” (to express it crassly), those who see ghosts (Gespensterschauer); they become possessed by a leaning toward phenomenalism. This means that they want to see the spiritual world in the same way as the sense world is to be seen; they do not want to perceive spiritual facts, spiritual beings, but something similar to the beings that the sensory eye can behold. In short, instead of spirits they want to behold specters, ghosts. The error of spiritualism (this is not to say that all spiritualism is unjustified) consists of this leaning toward phenomenalism. Just as the ordinary, everyday materialist wants to see only matter everywhere and not the spirit behind matter, so does he who brings to the spiritual world the same soul condition that actually exists in materialism want to see everywhere only ghostlike, condensed spirits.
This is one dangerous extreme of error that can emerge. One must say that this tendency to carry the ordinary field of consciousness up into the super-sensible field of consciousness exists in the widest circles, even among those who fully recognize a “spiritual world” and want “proof” of a spiritual world. The error here, however, lies in considering a proof valid only if it takes place in the realm of phenomenalism; it lies in considering that everything should be like condensed ghosts. Here something arises that was called in the beginning of our study a stupor, losing consciousness in relation to the spiritual world.” -Rudolf Steiner, Errors in Spiritual Investigation, Meeting the Guardian of the Threshold March 6, 1913.

Robert of Mayflower’s AstrologyNews&Spiritual Views for August into Sept. 2020

To substitute for argument and exhortation the semi-magical influence
of slogans, repetition, and psychological tricks
is to exploit the unconscious, not to enlighten it.
-Owen Barfield

“Let us then fly from hence my friends, to those delightful realms: for there,
while connected with body, we may find a retreat from the storms and tempests
of a corporeal life. Let us build for ourselves the raft of virtue, and
departing from this region of sense, like Ulysses from the charms of Calypso,
direct our course by the light of ideas, those bright intellectual stars,
through the dark ocean of a material nature, until we arrive at our father’s land.
For there having divested ourselves of the torn garments of mortality,
as much as our union with body will permit, we may resume our natural appearance; and may each of us at length, recover the ruined empire of his soul.”

-from footnote at end of the book at mayflower bookshop called-
‘The Hymns of Orpheus’, translated from the Greek by Thomas Taylor

Half, if not two-thirds of our ailings and diseases are the fruit of our imagination and fear. Destroy the latter and give another bent to the former, and nature will do the rest.
-H.P. Blavatsky, Raja Yoga or Occultism,

New Astrology Calendars are in for 2021! Get it before sold out!
Best Books to read this summer are Steiner’s ‘Foundations of Esoterism’ and HPBlavatsky’s ISIS UNVEILED! Divine Pomander of Hermes. Initiation into Hermetics by Bardon. Deeply Spiritual and Provocative genius books to awaken your highest thinking heart intelligence.

Susan Rice or Elizabeth Warren Biden best pick for VP astrologically. Kamala Harris’s transit of Saturn may not be right pick, but i like her gutsiness and bravado. ps. When i predicted Mr.Trump to win last election going head on against what the Wall Street Journal called the best 300 astrologers in America claiming Mrs. Clinton to Win; I predicted Mr. Trump to lose this coming election. Just astrologically saying, its the tendency. Michelle Obama would sweep it! Its legal to ask Mr. Obama! Or will it be someone not on the map yet. No doubt, Election still depending on Pres. Trump’s actions that include and help enlighten all of us, the world; or help divide and create fear and chaos. In the big picture, each of us matters and votes for future of the earth by the individual and collective way we choose to live, breathe, feel, think, do. See the amazing book by Blavatsky called ‘Isis Unveiled’. Einstein, Steiner, Manly Hall, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr. read her! Check all her books out for that matter. Also Steiner’s great interpretation of her Secret Doctrine, his ‘Outline of Occult Science’. There books available at Mayflower Bookshop but free on line. Theosophical University Press online, and Jim Stewart’s wonderful RudolfSteiner Archives (Audio too for you on the run folks).

Comet NeoWise in the western sky at sunset during June/July brought many a new impulse and idea, perhaps even friend, into and out of one’s life!? Comets cleanse, wing in, defy, throw out, clean up, suddenly get new light turned on. Interesting events wing in and out offering opportunity for new growth and insight. With two tails, some see the ‘devil in high places’ and in the details. Cancer, Gemini, Leo planets affected with flashes of genius or craziness.

Those born with sun and planets in Cancer/Capricorn/Libra/Aries are especially feeling intense call to be change up, be free, tell truths bigger than all of us, love like its the last time.
Early Leo and late Gemini have some kind of miss or kiss the beauty as it flies by.

We receive but what we give,
And in our life alone does Nature live. …
And would we ought behold of higher worth. …
Ah! from the soul itself must issue forth
A light, a glory, a fair luminous cloud
Enveloping the Earth. ~Coleridge

Comets come to bring new ideas and people in, and take old outworn ideas and people out. As we approach Comet Neowise close pass to our earth July 22-23rd into August (in affect since last March and its close pass to Sun July 3rd), we will see all that it portends. Comet cleanser is the best description, although comets also associated with quick rise or fall in popularity, fame, name, or blame, shame, game. Comets want us to go back to good old days, or rush into an unsure future. Need wisdom and patience to insure good work and lasting true value. Such a comet is usually indicative of good to great wine year. Many experience events influencing the rest of one’s life time… for good or ill. Depends on you; your purity, courage, honesty, bravado, daring, and smarts, love. Sudden rise and falls, sudden arrivals or partings of ways.

There is a rose of the heart in which when open, angels meet.
All the intelligence of the world awakens to such heart ground.
Peace is the patient gardener, joy in good day’s work;
night is the song freedom sounds when all the world is still.
~robert of mayflower

Another wild aspect in the sky this summer was Uranus at midpoint between Venus and Mars! When the Moon triggers Uranus, it quickens the pace of this extraordinary aspect of love, fights, sex, and contesting resisting engaging, going crazy go nuts for feelings and intellect, dreams and realities, exotic meetings. This aspect particularly hitting fixed signs Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius/Leo. as well as mutable signs Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, Pisces. Opportunities to step up to the next higher level of love , higher truth. One can suddenly make splits, space, distance, and disagreement in relationship. Need to rise or fall away perhaps. Intelligence and feelings of love need meet, otherwise a further distancing of the divide or separation. The Cardinal signs of Cancer, Capricorn, Libra, Aries are working hard to include everybody, still worried about self finding a good way to keep it all together. But also, how to find time for oneself, for research and new discovery? By November we will see how we did!

i’ve been very very busy this summer with gardening biodynamic style organic. Vegetables, greens, flowers, and more. Writing poems and songs, helping out friends, researching, communing with eternity and simple silence, presence, now awareness yet holding all seven levels, deeper than ever~ that i’ve not been keeping up with posting my cosmological and astrological insights, other than to subscribers. But here i am again to share!

Of course the ideal is for you to get a personal reading and get quick insights into you and yr world happenings, timing, predictions, and ways to change, rearrange, play and work the great game of life. Finding deeper long lasting insights, workings, timing, and ways to go is key. Meditation, exercise, healthy diet, right reading and study material is very important. Mayflower can help !
Many have asked for some insights into what’s up. Get on my special email updates by donating something. Otherwise here is a few of my latest astrological and spirited views ~

I light a candle
I am flame
lighting each moment of day.
~robert of mayflower

We’ve been going through aftermath of last January’s Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn (a planetary mid life crisis) making for powers that be bigger than you and me messing with directing the weather, economics, behaviour, the world into ‘good behaviour’, (whatever that is). Usually means getting paid or sedated from symptoms. Sat/Plut is power over wisdom and forced behaviour, obedience, incoherent coherence, cognitive dissidents.
For instance, China and Russia want the USA to be divided, go through psychic civil war, experience chaos. Hopefully we don’t wish the same for them. Where is creative World Peace thinking?! The big conversation should include howto not lose sight of world harmony, co-creative intelligence, freedom of spirit art culture, and a sense of universal love, respect, a sense of unity through the diversity. Without higher love and intelligence, freedom of spirit and disciplined action, we’re all in trouble. You can’t just ‘get high’ and figure this out.
The United States of America, because of its history and urge for freedom and happiness, was and still is, the main place to figure this all out, to be free, smart, happy. In China and Russia you don’t see dissidents, they disappear without media or court dates. Think about it. We are the last hope of real freedom and justice for all. And nobody is smart enough. We need a greater courage, love, truth, and willingness to live the life to prove the doctrines.

“When, at the cosmic hour of destiny in the life of a human being, a certain relationship is established between Jupiter and Saturn, there flash into human destiny those wonderful moments of illumination when many things concerning the past are revealed through thinking.
If we look in history for occasions in the time of the Renaissance — particularly during its last period — when there was a great renewal of ancient impulses, we shall find that this was directly connected with a certain relationship between Jupiter and Saturn.
But, as already said, Jupiter is in a certain respect impenetrable and his revelations remain in the unconscious if a man does not bring to them clear and active light-filled thoughts of his own. And that is why in ancient times, when active thinking was still at a very early state of development, the progress of humanity was in truth always dependent upon the relation between Jupiter and Saturn. When Jupiter and Saturn together formed a certain constellation, many things were revealed to our ancestors in those days. Modern man has to depend more upon receiving the memory of Saturn and the wisdom of Jupiter separately in the course of his spiritual development.”
-Rudolf Steiner, July 1923

Jupiter the planet of social identity and growth has conjunct Pluto, the planet of scary things like death, evil, bad guys, monsters of finality, and never ending bad time. Jupiter Pluto is the death and rebirth of the social identity. Its an aspect where many go broke and a number of folks get super rich. Its an aspect of social (jupiter) injustice (pluto). Its also an aspect of transformation, transfiguration, transmutation, and social alchemy at a very high level needing me to talk for an hour or two one. Not so simple to write for masses quick like this.

Jupiter conjunct Pluto came after the last January’s conjunction of Saturn/Pluto. A darth dark invader collective shadow of history conjunction. It was star wars but inside us. Bottom lines and limitations of growth. Forced retreat. Jupiter conjunct Pluto occurs 3 times this year and seems to be the timing for triggering the world’s problems at a collective social cultural level; i.e. Virus, poor world leadership incapable or bringing world peace and harmony rather than continual military one up on another and escalation of troubles, economic and ecological imbalance and injustice, equality of rights.
November is the last Jupiter Pluto conjunction and should bring many a conclusion to troubled times, be it Kanya and Kim, or Leaders past and present, Presidents of the world, Virus, economic imbalances, injustice and kinky weirdoes in the news.

“Mars has a great longing to be always talking, and whenever some quality in human nature enables him to make a man loquacious, he stimulates this tendency.
Mars does little thinking. He has few thinkers, but many talkers, in his sphere. The Mars Spirits are always on the watch for what arises here or there in the universe and then they talk about it with great zest and fervour. Mars is the planetary individuality who in the course of the evolution of humanity instigates human beings in manifold ways to make statements about the mysteries of the cosmos. Mars has his good and his less good sides — he has his Genius and his Demon. His Genius works in such a way that men receive from the universe the impulses for speech; the influence of his Demon results in speech being misused in many and various ways. In a certain sense Mars may be called the Agitator in our universe. He is always out to persuade, whereas Jupiter wants only to convince.”
~Rudolf Steiner , July 1923

Mars, the planet of forward moving trouble making fiery and feisty argumentative and aggressive with desires and fears is making trouble for few more months, or is it a conquering of new land and insight? When Mars transits Jupiter/Pluto/Saturn by conjunction last March following saturn/pluto last January, all hell broke out with the virus and political economic infighting. Mars triggered mayhem and chaos, and real fears of Virus. Mars will square Jupiter/Pluto/Saturn in August now, triggering ‘More Karma and God only knows what’. Danger of extremes and opposites, of too much aggression, force, or feelings of being sunk, or having to make tough hard decisions, touchy reactive choices, feeling at odds with others. Will be backslide with virus again? Or will be brave on forwards? Mixed bag?
Will we all be ‘at war’ with each other? Will higher Courage and Truth unite us? Will the guardian angel protect, the ArcAngel of the Sun bring higher intelligence and socially transformative lasting result? Mars coming not to twice again trigger the Jupiter/Pluto/Saturn trio in Capricorn, and it may take till December to figure out what actually happened this last while!
Will courage to love one another’s ‘higher self’, infinite possibility and holy space stillness truly transform tough times into healing and renewal, transformation and rebirth, c0-creative peace on the planet? Will higher wisdom and a more eternal view give us freedom from these insane chaotic moments now pressuring us? Mars can be stormy both in nature and politics/economics/and personal life of emotions, attachments, unresolved karma both individually and collectively from this and other lifetimes.
The end of September Mars retrograde squares Saturn retrograde,,,,,more trouble here?! Retrogrades always the toughest! Third hit usually has it figured and reconfigured out. Will end of Sept. finalize and clarify troubles and what we’re really dealing with? Will real clarity put trouble makers in checkmate. Will we discern finally real from fake? Honest protest from fake paid for opponents? Whew, tough times!

So, Watch out for transit of Mars in Aries coming to square Jupiter making for aggressive moves to grow and know at whatever cost. Mars will square Saturn demanding truth and facts, reality and what is going down for real, structured discipline and rules work here but make one feel squeezed, not free. Mars squaring, Pluto in Capricorn makes for mischief, good guys vs bad guys, some take the law into their own hands, police and military very busy at this time. Good for research and much wisdom and patience to deal with peoples emotions and feelings of injustice, abuse, anxiety, fear, and ‘Woundology Psychology’ is out, Enlightenment is in. From the highest spiritual view, the Higher Self sets up one’s whole life as a learning opportunity, working off karma, and awakening Spiritual enlightenment. Yes there is also a material world in which one can find fault and karmic recompense, law and justice, mercy and forgiveness~ perhaps! Each is free to learn from life or not. It helps to have a many lifetime view, a theosophy of rosy cross and raised consciousness potential and movement.
There is a Spirit or Spiritual World wherein each of us rules over our karma, our awaareness, our learning curve, our true freedom/love/enlightenment, Truth; our journey home, our return to love and truth and heart mind spirit soul.
The Soul is the mediator, the mediator, the activating resonance and response to Spirit truths. Spirit into Soul, Soul into body, is the ‘Thought Adjuster’ and revelation. The lower bodies are always student to the higher awareness, thus giving light to the body’s mistakes or learning crisis opportunities.

So’ this coming triple mars transit will be giving us a roller coaster of effects and new causes to act or react upon. There is no longer any excuse for not finding inner freedom, genius, enlightenment, and encounter. Now is the time for inner awakening, the whole world lock down is pointing at us to meditate, reconsider, ponder, be still, get to know ourself, deep and world wide.

Mars/Saturn aspects need to get back to work, honoring self and environment. Patience and wisdom compassion is key here. In first half of October Mars retrograde squares Pluto making for social cultural need for truth and justice, fairness and equality, or social unrest will ensue. Deep need for spiritual psychology and many lifetime view would be helpful. It’s also a time for dishonest or dirty play, a time of negative projection and intense critique and muck throwing. A time of renewal or degeneration for many.
Mid October Mars retrograde squares Jupiter making for lust for fun, quick gain without work; yet such aspect offers the possibility of positive turn of events allowing us to see clear positive light at the end of the tunnel. Something good happening to spark our going on perhaps.
Mars goes forward from retrograde in November after election unfortunately, then gives positive shifting energies but will later come again to square Pluto after the December Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius, yuk! And then Mars moves on to square Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius from Taurus in 2021, which will be way more positive about what to do and what to not do.
Whew!…….Mars is kick ass aspect making more action, less talk.
So November/December/January should be positive big turning points in Virus, economics, politics, history, and our inner spiritual journey to enlightenment, wholeness, completion, and friendship. It is my hope that latest by late Dec. 2020, we see healing and positive turn of events; in spirit soul body… the planet as a whole, and to each of us indivisually. The Virus should subside or take its right small place in our lives.

“When efforts to bring clarity of thought to bear upon some weighty problem of existence are unsuccessful because of physical, etheric, and especially astral hindrances, the Jupiter Beings come to the help of mankind. A man who has tried hard to apply clear thinking to some problem but cannot get to the root of it, will find, if he is patient and works inwardly at it, that the Jupiter powers will actually help him during the night. And many a one who has found a better solution for some problem during the night, as though out of dream, than during the previous day, would have to admit, if he knew the truth, that it is the Jupiter powers who imbue human thinking with mobility and vigour.
Saturn, then, is the preserver of the Memory of our universe; Jupiter is the Thinker in our universe. To Jupiter man owes all the impulses he is able to receive from the spiritual present in the universe. To Saturn he owes all the impulses of soul and spirit he can receive from the cosmic past.”
-Rudolf Steiner July 23 1923.

When folks unable to make real ‘inner’ changes and transformations of growth and learning, keep changing just ‘externals’, the repeat offenders and experience keeps happening. You?
On other hand when external changes give inner revelation, inner revelation realization, inner change, the outer organically and naturally changes for the better. This is metaphysical hermetic law. This is truth, it’s art. In time each of us will get enlightened, Each of us on spirit level is beautiful no matter what, is enlightened now , just unconscious of it perhaps.
Keep trying to learn steiner, blavatsky, tibetan Buddhism, manly hall, yoga and meditation; then the outer will just fall in line, on point, circle, and golden ration, mean, and triangle of thinking/feeling/willing becoming truly transformed creative by Atma, Buddhi, Manas, or Spirit Self/Life Spirit/Spirit Man (see Steiner’s Theosophy and Blavatsky’s Key to Theosophy as well as her Voice of the Silence books..

Whereas Saturn tells of the past, Jupiter gives a living portrayal of what is connected with him in the cosmic present. But what Jupiter reveals to the eye of spirit must be grasped with thoughtful intelligence. If a man does not himself make efforts to develop his capacities of thinking, he cannot, even if he is clairvoyant, approach the mysteries of Jupiter, for they are revealed in the form of thoughts and can be approached only through a genuine activity of thinking. Jupiter is the Thinker in our universe.
Spiritual individualities of the planets, 1923

Jupiter has conjunct Pluto 2 times, and coming once more (the third time) in November 2020. Should be easy to handle than rather than escalation of everything negative and fearful. Good for letting go and recreating a self worthy of our highest endeavor. This aspect would take me an hour to talk about. Its basically the death and rebirth of your social identity; friends, family, co-workers, more. Its how some get filthy rich and others poorer than poor. Its all in our face now. Its about coming to renewed power and charity by recognizing all as brothers and sisters, or by separating and dividing to conquer and have personal opinion persuasion. Its about the difficulty of letting others be free to keep your own ego intact. Its about learning to be selfless and open to learning. Its all that and lots more. Its the death and rebirth of relationships, hope, land, feelings, ego, personality, relations, job and calling. Its feeling like a rebellious teenager at the same time you feel like you are dying to the past, struggling for a new you future.

Where is it all going?! Well for once, its all going into the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Aquarius in December 2020. Then the Virus and many another craziness crashes and burns, disappears. What then? Hopefully a renewed take on long term security, happiness, friendships, ralations to body and land, and hope for the future, peace and love on this earth for one and all.

December 21st, 2020, on the winter solstice, Jupiter and Saturn conjoin (conjunct) at Zero degree Aquarius. It is my hope that such aspect brings the miracle of an awakened citizenship to the planet, a new vision and voice for world peace and harmony between nations and peoples, social and political justice and higher intelligence, heart and soul.
Such aspect needs an hour or two of me talking to unwind the possibilities, but here is very brief note on it.

“Who then are those who principally labour for the good of humanity in general, and who set themselves universal tasks in later incarnations? They are those who in earlier incarnations, have in some way or other died a death of sacrifice. The devotional natures, those given up to the spiritual here on the earth, owe this to their life of martyrdom in a previous incarnation. The earth could not progress unless people sacrificed themselves”.
-Rudolf Steiner – GA 157a – The Forming of Destiny and Life after Death – Lecture 3 – Berlin, 20th November 1915

Midpoints to uranus/neptune are critical but don’t have the time to explain at the moment. But so is your midheaven ascendent midpoint. Get a reading!

“One hears it quite often said, mostly in Central Europe, but perhaps in Western Europe too, that there is only one health, but a multitude of diseases. This statement, which many believe to be correct, cannot be upheld in the light of a genuine knowledge of the human being. Because man is so individual, so particularly  formed, that everyone, every child, already has a very specially suited health. We can therefore say that there are as many states of health and diseases as there are people. This reminds us of the necessity to continually focus on understanding the individual nature of man.”
-Rudolf Steiner – GA 303
– Dornach, December 28, 1921 (page 100)

uranus oppose Ivanka Trump’s Sun at midpoint……out of job and moving? Separations? This is one aspect indicative of big changes at the ‘White House’.

Kim and Kanya parting? Most likely if you look at their charts, even if outwardly staying together. Clinton’s the same. Trumpsters the same, maybe. We need a new book on love. Osho anybody? True Grail teachings or alchemy could tell, but few get beyond using everything to build up their tower of power and personal wealth lack of sisterly brotherly sharing. Beautifully weird time we in. Each has the freedom to reach for the higher octave, the higher self; rather than fall into fear and unworthy desires not making us complete, whole.
Change needs happen within first, then outwardly gracefully truly harmoniously flowering. Share don’t give, care and forgive or let go till more wisdom comes, but avoid being bitten again by repeat offenders. Love truth, daring, creativity, joy, work enlivens. Be you, all the others are insanely not you. Each has a gift to share with the world, without which the world is poorer. Lets inwardly be rich and shine shine share share our good true beautiful. Look to the Spirit of the Sun in the Spark in every heart. There’s a beautiful song in every heart as my song goes.

“We can grasp the nature of the Sun only when we know something of its nature of spirit and soul. In that realm it is the power which imbues with warmth the element of necessity in destiny, resolves destiny into freedom in its flame, and if freedom is misused, condenses it once more into its own active substance. The Sun is as it were the flame in which freedom becomes a luminous reality in the universe; and at the same time the Sun is the substance in which, as condensed ashes, misused freedom is moulded into destiny — until destiny itself can become luminous and pass over into the flame of freedom.”
~Rudolf Steiner 1923

I am still predicting, since i predicted his first win, Pres. Trump to lose next election. Joe B has difficult aspects so i won’t surprised if i’m wrong. Or does he drop out for whatever reason, or leaves office as president, and the VP choice by default ends up Pres?! E. Warren? Opra or Michelle Obama could easily win, why aren’t they running or pointing out who should? Will President Trump suddenly amaze us with unifying insight and wisdom bravado? Its a wild time, a good time, to be alive. Expect Sept and November to be wild card change ups and new directions, surprises, and bottom lines. December’s Jupiter Saturn conjunct in Aquarius is major turning point good or bad for our future both collectively and individually. Jupiter will take the lead and go ahead of saturn and pluto; a kind of ‘get behind be satan’ move which should prove positive for the planet. Obviously human beings must each come to this freedom, truth, love, on their own to truly matter and not continue look to others to save us. And yes, each of us by how we live, breathe, think feel creates and recreates the future. From the higher angle, anything could happen! We have inner freedom to resonate to the highest ideal and virtue!

Astrology Calendar ~
Major Hot (positive and negative) Astrology Days! Many retrograde planets make for reversals, rethinks, redo, redress, and feelings of going backwards or retrograde. Look to how these aspects hit your own chart to see what’s up.

July 30 Mercury opp Jupiter, Mercury trine Neptune, Venus inconjunct Pluto. Strong need to have real love in one’s life. Whether friend, lover, family, plants, nature, music, philosophy, spiritual teaching; need for upliftment and passionate daring, adventure, vaster, deeper higher, feelings and mind of more enlightened holy state of consciousness. A sense of not trusting others. Need for privacy alone or with special other. Creative time or worrisome time. Plans that will not follow through. Edgy and dreamy.

Aug 1st Mercury oppose Pluto triggers the Pluto hanging out at the midpoint of Jupiter/Saturn. Everything wrong with this world is being thrown in our face. Many blaming others for their unhappiness but no good results or resolution is at hand. Positive side is radical stillness and willingness to go on, learn anew, renew, let go. One should be rather cautious of making radical moves. Great aspect for research and inner review. Great aspect to read deeply Steiner, Blavatsky, NeoPlatonism, hermetics, Manly Hall, tibetan buddhism, Osho, Alchemy, cabala, Yoga origins, and more. Now is the time to awaken a higher mind and heart for truth, divine love, real friendships lasting through lifetimes. Lots of wrangling and in fighting, worldly charms and materialistic dharmas run rampant.

August 2nd Sun square Uranus. Sudden arrivals or partings. Sudden flashes of genius, revelation, insight; or shock, change, sudden turn of events, pressures causing premature actions failing in intent and result. Possible quake, storm, or sunspot activity. Breakthroughs or breakdowns. Need for genius and patience for the eternal verities.

August 3 Mercury oppose Saturn makes for reality bent and bottom line. Avoid negativity by eating simple grains and vegetables. Meditate of at least 3 to 7 life times, yours or those you love. Be patient with others but down wait to be yourself. Make time for yourself.

Aug. 4th Mars in Aries squares Jupiter. Over exuberance is good if brings immediate results. Otherwise slow down and smell the roses.

Aug. 7 Venus enters sign of Cancer. Good time now and coming to cook healing foods each and every day. Hug and be hugged. Be thank full and create reasons others are thank full of you!

t’s never as bad as it seems, nor as good.
This is but one of many lives, it’s good to keep things in perspective,
as well as respectful
and spiritually expectant
something good is coming.

Aug. 10 Mercury square Uranus. Genius and connectivity if afoot. Dare to be creative, let go and let ‘God’ (virtue of true self) guide.

Tyranny is the temptation
of every ego,
deception of every lack;
individuality is universal
responsibility to the little ones
as well as those gone before
and yet to come.
sacrifice self for Self,
for perfect wholeness
in the listening heart,
in the open mind,
in the good for all.
~robert of mayflower

Aug 13 Mars square Pluto. This is a dangerous aspect. Good guy and bad guys fight it out. Dirty secrets exposed. Wisdom and Compassion seriously needed here. Play it safe, avoid risk taking or dangerous places.
Infighting, warring, making demands and giving ultimatums. Danger of mars aggressive or self centered actions causing reaction. Possible need to break away or out of some situation. Danger around guns, anger, law, breaking rules, trespassing, not keeping boundaries. Tragedy.
Positive side is heroic action, saving a situation or person, bravado and truth over power and selfishness. At times very strong female personalities representing justice and the American way of courage, virtue, audacity for truth no matter what. For most it will be a very moody depressing day. Bad movies and psycho drama, repeat offenders.

“Now the Mars Beings imbue everything with an element of aggressiveness, be it in the domain of physical, psychical or spiritual qualities. Nay more, they make a person combative, warlike by nature. This warlike element is compatible not only with attack but also with retreat; otherwise wars could not be fought! I think this was obvious enough during the [First] World War.”
-Steiner karmic relationships

Aug. 15th Uranus in Taurus goes retrograde and all the creative changes and earthly renewals either satisfy or temporally frustrate yr desires or fears. Many demand suffering and will do anything to find contributors. Ha! May we all learn to turn inward to discover our true stillness and moving genius, friend to all, enemy to none.

Aug. 16th Sun trine Mars makes for all ahead go, fool or genius.

Aug 17 Mercury trine Mars, Sun conjunct Mercury. If you are observant, this is a day (within 3) where Hermes the mercurial messenger delivers secret instructions to your soul on how to become enlightened, torture your friends with truth, love without sense of worry nor limitation, and find your true next step to higher destiny, freedom, and creative participation with the future of the world. Breathe deep to the heart and let go, take another breath and listen with your whole heart. A messenger comes, whether day or dreamy night, a messenger comes.

Aug. 18th Venus sextile Uranus and New Moon in Leo at the heart of the Lion. Love invisible and visible is at hand. Art your day into your wholeness of life.

Aug 19th Mercury enters critical virgo. As HPB says, “Fear no failure, court no success.” Avoid negatives that are impotent to bring positive results of learning, healing, spiritual returning, growing to know in new ways. Until Mercury enters Libra in early September, the cynics and negative provocateurs are back in force. Meditate in silence one to three times a day to find healing wholeness and way to go. Constructive criticism may not even work now. Look for whole hearted insights and ‘way to go’.

Aug 22nd Sun enters Virgo. Take the best, leave the rest, of your experience distilling into wisdom’s keep safe.

Saturn is an entirely self-engrossed heavenly body in our planetary system, raying his own being into the universe. When we contemplate Saturn, he tells us always what he is. Whereas the Moon — contemplated in its external aspect — tells us about everything else in the universe, Saturn tells us nothing at all about the impulses he receives from the universe. He speaks only of himself, tells us only what he himself is.
-Steiner, July 27,1923

Aug 24 Mars square Saturn. Hard work needs right co-workers and friends. Need to achieve higher vision capable of seeing where the hard work is going and is it worth it. For some its boring times needing engaging right work or action. For some its more delays, blocks, walls, ‘no’, and a long road block. Good for honest work with long term plans. Difficult but necessary decision making. Patience enough to wait for wisdom to come.

Everywhere is a good place to start,
a difficult place to end.
Stillness divines it all,
still knows it all;
past present future
in one breath. Let go and breathe!
~robert of mayflower

Aug 25 Mercury trine uranus and Venus oppose Jupiter should make for good times, social connectivity, and joyful laughs. Avoid overdoing and have fun with new insights, truths, sharing.
Positive thoughts and renewed ways of working for better times, futures. Right thinking and action find support and mutual agreement. Time to reach out beyond boundaries and connect with higher spirit souls.

Truth is a free creation
of the human spirit,
that never would exist at all
if we did not generate it ourselves.

-Rudolf Steiner
Aug 26 – Pres.Trump Saturn oppose midheaven, Bottoming out at the Big House? Or is it big turning point, possibly indicating a positive turn after a bad one? A coming sense of rising up, once past this bottoming out in winter, spring, summer? Is it laying new foundation, finding right ground to stand on, sense of sure footing to rise up? Possible low point though for now around ‘White House’. Subtle and gross need to rethink and again rethink, anew think to make a future turn for the better.Weighed down feeling of too much to handle. A need of silence to think. Happiness when alone. Don’t worry if this doesn’t make sense, neither does the world at the moment. All astrological aspects have a higher and lower octave that each individual must find for themselves out of freedom and higher love for all life. Each is a child of God or Universal Goodness, Oneness. Not everyone resonating with their higher octave but in time, in some lifetime , it will happen for one and all. May that time come soon for the sake of the planet.

“Give up your opinions, nothing is right
until it works.’ ~robert of mayflower

Aug. 27th Venus trine Neptune. Ideal love dreams us on. Good for creativity and soul mating. Not good for hard line bottom line and tough facts. Some dream of far away places, or escape from reality. Some actually do create alternative beautiful realities finding the muse of higher octave good true beautiful. Good aspect for loving, dreaming true, touching, finding inspiration to renew, go on, dream real. Dreams reveal secrets of each other’s soul life. Higher Love idealism and inspirations possible.

The truth will never be found,
You have to live it
then it speaks for itself
reflecting in the world around.
~robert of mayflower

Aug 29th Mercury in Virgo trine Jupiter in Capricorn. Good time to figure out everything! Bookkeeping, accounting, right conversing, sharing, facts, plans, cleaning, fixing up, who to work with or not. Good for correcting, dharma, making right connection. Thinking clear.

“In fact the law of karma is the most consoling law there is. Just as it is true that nothing exists without a cause, so it is equally true that nothing existing remains without its effects. I may be born in poverty and misery; my abilities may be very limited; yet whatever I do must produce its effect, and whatever I accomplish now, by way of industry or moral activity, will certainly have its effect in later lives. If it depresses me to think that I have deserved my present destiny, it may equally cheer me to know that I can frame my future destiny myself.

Anyone who really takes this law into his thinking and feeling will soon realise what a sense of power and of security he has gained. We do not have to understand the law in all its details; that becomes possible only at the higher stages of clairvoyant knowledge. Much more important is it that we should look at the world in the light of this law and live in accordance with it. If we do this conscientiously over a period of years, the law will of its own accord become part of our feelings. We verify the truth of the law by applying it.”
-Rudolf Steiner, Spiritual Science

Aug. 30 Venus in Cancer oppose Pluto in Capricorn. Avoid negative emotions in trying to have compassion for self and other. Change yourself to change your world round. Don’t take anything personally other than the higher self wishes to speak through the noise and emotional chaos. Feelings of being rejected. Sometimes good aspect for research, intense communication, transformational spiritual psychology, Kundalini experience. Visits to the underworld and back. Home or personal wishes and world work or calling at odds perhaps. Jealousy doesn’t work here. Letting go of psycho drama and letting higher calling come in. Need to see many life times and many friends, family, lovers, to get right perspective. Fear is confession of lack of truth as to self. Fear is lack of love for higher self. Where truth, no fear, just going on peacefully.
In the news, lots of dirt on everybody without higher self insights.

Sept 2nd Venus oppose Saturn and Sun trine Uranus makes for reality take on whether you got your head on right about what is real love, what is truth lasts and nourishes us, what is real bed, home, and beyond. Sun/Uranus makes us brave to reach out in new ways, or to change creatively right where we are.

Sept. 4th Venus in Cancer squares Mars in Aries. Home or heart soul inner spirit decides it is more important than worldly fights and struggle. Serious energetic to come home to oneself, not other. Then and only then, ‘other’ falls in line. Such aspect notorious for lovers fighting or having the best time of their life.

Sept. 9th Mars retrograde marks the beginning of a very nasty couple or ‘uncoupling’ couple of months heading for the USA Presidential Election. Or is it everyone decides to be a buddhist and have compassion for how hard everyone struggles, works, strives, fights for ‘rights’? Ah, i think its now a weird time to fight , and a good time to step back and find the wisdom and right love to share, care, and dare to simply be you come hell or high water; just be gentle, kind, compassionate, and inwardly daring to see the truth.

Sept. 11th Sun in Virgo oppose Neptune in Pisces. Truth and lies get mixed up now. Actions speak louder than words. Avoid taking new steps if not totally clear in mind and heart. Nice aspect for artistic ideals, higher love, future plans.

Where there is no love, there is no future;
Where there is no truth, no presence
divining the present.
~robert of mayflower

Sept. 12th Jupiter goes direct now heading for big conjunction with Saturn in December. Truth and Love now hold hands and many a magical spiritual event is in the works.

Sept. 19 – For Pres. Trump, Venus trine prog. Jupiter indicates happy that others getting happier. This may be lucky good moment for making positive things happen for one and all. No it doesn’t mean he will win. Yet each has freedom to recreate what up and what coming.

A Verse for Our Time
We must eradicate from the soul
All fear and terror of what comes towards man out of the future.
We must acquire serenity
In all feelings and sensations about the future.
We must look forward with absolute equanimity
To everything that may come.
And we must think only that whatever comes
Is given to us by a world-directive full of wisdom.
It is part of what we must learn in this age,
namely, to live out of pure trust,
Without any security in existence.
Trust in the ever present help
Of the spiritual world.
Truly, nothing else will do
If our courage is not to fail us.
And let us seek the awakening from within ourselves
Every morning and every evening.

Here it is:

  1. Biden tough Saturn/Pluto in sky oppose his birth Jupiter indicates tough times.
  2. Elizabeth Warren with Jupiter transit in sky opp her natal birth Venus … is not enough charm, charisma, or whatever to keep folks loving up. She could end up by default, everyone else falling, at the end zones. Tough though to have winning smile.
  3. Bernie Sanders has good aspects at the moment and can keep rising in the ranks and virtues of presidential material, spirit. End of March may be trying … but at election time his good aspects could carry him if he makes it there, he may.
  4. Mike Bloomberg astrology? Pluto, if time of birth right, is coming to oppose his natal ascendant … all hell is about to break loose; but as we get past mid April his aspects get better and better into election. He can’t be too smart folks; after all, he’s running for president. (yes, a joke). Here is how he could be smart, choose Michelle Obama for VP. Or some one that cool and female.
  5. My Prediction is that President Trump will lose the election. Of course i could be wrong, but I wasn’t last time when 300 of the best astrologers in the USA said in the Wall Street Journal that Mrs. Clinton would win. Good luck with them. Wall Street avoided my prediction and said they were doing me a favor. Hmmm. I am not against being wrong, but my reputation with Tibetan lamas and far right clients was based on honesty and predictions, not favorites. I am also predicting that Michelle Obama may be winner if running for Pres or as VP. I get that some one new may enter last moment and carry it. Astrology is a wonderful science art, astrologers are not always up to par. So we will see.
  6. As for the Corona Virus, we have to get through March into mid April to know for sure what is up. Even if its a bluff scare, what’s wrong with a month’s supply of water and food and toilet paper ? No fear, just common sense.
  7. May all of us read and learn the virtues and cares of the many little saints and angels who shared spiritual truths and ways of life making us all happy, holy, sacred with land and sky and the divine in each other.
  8. Marianne Williamson, a kind of friend at times, should be on the cabinet of whoever wins.
  9. Decide to get top 22 books at mayflower before you are locked up in your own pathos or somebody else’s.
  10. No matter, blessings and love beyond limits.
love and truth, mind, and common sense,
robert of mayflower

AstroNews for Oct-November-Dec

October 1st Venus in libra square Pluto in capricorn. First half of month has mostly challenging aspects. Some feel in over their head, others feel overwhelmed. Where there is Love, there is God; as Tolstoy and the Bible say. Where there is emptiness practice, stillness heart listening, there is room to move, grow, know more, participate, be part of it all. Acting out of separateness without true understanding of karma and re-incarnating learning circumstance; life is tough to say the least. Negative emotions and selfishness is killing the world. Ownership without enlightenment is killing the world.

Negative emotions is a mindless battleground. Jealousy is loving someone for who you want them to be rather than who they are. Avoid negative emotions and projections,  manipulations through guilt, shame, blame, anger. Guilt is what we pay ourselves to do it again. There is no real shame or blame, guilt, other than not living up to one’s highest ideal, virtue, holy dream, inspiration, intuition; one’s sense of ONENESS, universal connection, Eros. Venus/Pluto wants to deepen love but needs to act out of freedom, love, compassion, higher truth.

   Such pluto aspects makes some feel squeezed and pinched, compelled to behavior rather than inspired to make holy, peaceful, more enlightened, awake.

    Lots of mud throwing in news. Judgement without healing and upliftment of all involved is lame, short sighted, and often inhumane. Dirt’ on others we see often our next life circumstance if not properly dealt with.

    Secrets smothered and hid now revealed? Or shamefully hid better? Good time to selflessly take a look at what works for the best of all, the most for the many. Need for healing and working more together rather than rogue. Yet individuals oft lead the change for better or worse.

     Venus in last of cycle third quarter coming to join Pluto indicates a wanting to go home, back to the heart and soul, back to renewal of original primal instincts driving one onward, upward, and forward with a sense of passion, love, creative art. The art of being truly human is at stake, learning to breathe to the heart is critical for one’s sanity and health.

     Animal appetites and mechanistic behaviour, fear and anger, attachment or ‘cling ons’ are tripping many. Selfless love, compassion, learning, feeling, making all friend and hugging hearts and earth is big plus these days of daze and explosive situations. Pluto tends to get wrapped up in sticky fights needing to flow to find light. Ultimatums and dirty play, sneaky behind the scenes undermining of others (self in long run) are at hand first half of month.

      Positive approach is to purify, renew, selflessly seek truth, and act, with universal love, truth, and personal touch.

October 3rd Pluto goes direct from retrograde. Since last April when it went retrograde, plans made end of 2018 into Spring, have taken a back step, but now about to go forward for positive change and self renewal, deepening, connection. It may take a few weeks of finding right steps and right other workings. Such aspect reveals need for big outer and inner change, moves, rearranging, rethink, and radical meditation/yoga so to open opportunity, miracle, surprise and wonder, making future more viable and friendly. 

    Finding right commitment to self realization and world learning is key. This powerful inner awakening energetic runs into Oct. 14th Sun square Pluto and may then tell more of the story heading as we approach january 2020 saturn/pluto conjunct. (a 31 to 37 yr cycle indicating midlife crisis, crux ifiction or crucifixion resurrection, journey to the under world, or unconsciousnes and back. The descent of the soul and its turning point in time as Rudolf Steiner likes to say, is a question in our hearts of timing, awareness, higher love. its a question of who’s got it right enough to ‘stay in forward’ and not have to keep slipping backwards into same old same old, reliving old movies and mistakes, one’s own and others. Its a quest and question of radical stillness and listening heart, YogaMind i call it in my book. Repeat offenders can be a problem, working on oneself and letting others go for a moment may be a good part of the resolution and solution to well being and spiritually becoming.

Oct. 6th Moon occults (conjuncts) Pluto, another progressive or digressive step, regeneration and making whole, or degenerating, deactivating, ill at ease,  (activating oct 3rd and 14th). Try not to take anything personally and over react inwardly or outwardly. No shame or blame, just learning; as Marianne Williamson use to tell me.

     Take it personal to invoke your own higher self, your own intuition of ‘God’, virtue, Higher Self, Buddha Mind, Christ Consciousness, call it what you will, but call it into your personal life!

    Pluto aspects good for clearing space for the new to enter, or for renewing the good true beautiful in self and others. Good for cleaning, fixing up, home work, renewing. Otherwise pluto can be degenerative with slow breakdown and sense of inevitability. Pluto demands selfless honestly and pure heartedness, otherwise secret selfishness limits the great possibility of infinite good. Mantra and Prayer good for centering and breathing into source, center, I AM, or Christ Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness. Prayer is talking to God, Meditation is listening to God; God is Love, not an ‘ego’ projection.

Oct. 7th Mercury oppose Uranus & Sun square Saturn makes for a serious day weighing the consequences of one’s actions, or lack of free will and compassionate for everyone actions. Often such aspect first half of October make for world events pushing many into immediate action or response. Extremes in the weather and emotions have some places and spaces too hot to handle, or too cold to warm up with enough love. Truth sets you free, love commits you to deeper passage and passion. Follow your highest ideal, work to make manifest; live the life to share the teachings.

October 8-9th Mars oppose Chiron in Aries. Tendency to act out of woundedness and estrangement rather than higher self calling. Or is it a passage, a doorway, a time to move through something rather than get stopped by something. In my book i see Chiron more like Chiron the boatsman in old Greek Myth reality, the one who carries you in and out of the underworld or worldly affairs. Its Hermes and Athena who connect heaven and earth, higher and lower self. Hermes is ArcAngel Michael to Steiner, Artemis/Athena is divinizing Sophia Wisdom. (See the Mission of Michael, and Isis, Mary, Sophia by Steiner at Mayflower)

     Opportunities to rise to the higher calling, rise to the occasion with great nobility of spirit and virtue soul is at hand. Avoid letting others trigger your fears and needy littleness, be big, put wings on your heart, Breathe! Wish and Bless! Feelings of crossing the river styx attempting to get to more light, higher ground, greater insight, and feelings of unity prevail midst the stormy times. Sound intelligence over unruly emotions rule. Passion for Truth, higher Truth, is king here (or at least worthy knight, Parzival).


Oct. 12 Venus in Libra oppose Uranus in Aries. What’s good for everybody concerned, a greater social cultural collective, family and friends may be strongly contested by either a whacky materialistic genius or egoist. None-the-less, creative free loving people are at odds with each other. too. Hasty rash forceful actions may backfire. Seek a love more inclusive of others, truth, freedom, creative social abilities and arts. Avoid rash action leaving others out of the decision making. This wildly creative or opposing energetic runs into Oct. 14th when Sun conjuncts Pluto and Moon conjuncts Uranus. This aspect good for free play, arts, making amends, or starting new healthy trends!

Oct. 13 Full Moon in Aries on the heels of yesterday’s Venus/Uranus urges one to make something new happen, rise to the next higher level, initiate change, be done with what doesn’t work for one’s higher self, for world at hand nor future.

     A sense of get over it already, or sense of wanting to quicken what nature is taking too long to do. Be patient and think long term, but make changes positive to oneself and one’s environment if you can. Highly creative and free loving time. Yet its important to know this ~ its fall and we are heading toward the BIG SATURN conjunct PLUTO this coming January 2020! Early warnings end of Sept into first half Oct. Will January be the finality, the final act of much of the psycho drama and pollution the world is in. Tough time for good food, clean air and water. It all starts with each and every one of us. The real change begins here in the heart and mind and what at hand.

     Outward fall into winter, but inwardly its the opposite (see Steiner’s ‘Four Seasons and the ArchAngels’, as well as his ‘Cycle of the Year’. So now, feel spring inside blooming your heart and soul. Outwardly fall, inwardly a rise of awareness, consciousness. Outwardly be patient as Buddha’s Mother awaiting birth of Buddha, of Higher Consciousness, real freedom and truth inside out. Be the patient compassion mother for lost wounded souls. Be patient with your own fears and desires, see through it. Avoid knee jerk reactions and hasty ill thought out actions. Full Moons push everyone to the limit and stir up things, strongly shift gears up or down. .

    If one is too outgoing then perhaps an ‘in-turning’ needed in days to come. If too inward, outer pulls and longings occur. breathe into the tension of opposites, breathe into the middle way, avoid extremes but enjoy the show.

     Here its wise to play but keep rooted to one’s spiritual mindfulness, one’s spiritual practice, one’s stillness at the eye of the storm. Full Moon is when the Sun and Moon , the inner and outer , tug at each other often finding opposing points of view. With Pluto ’T-Squaring’ Sun and Moon opposition, there is serious sense of foreboding, death, need to rise higher, and need to renew, rebirth, reactivate higher notions, angels, virtues. Its in the air.

     Strong sense of unfairness and need for justice in news again. Pluto impels one to look to deeper issues at cause of outer effects. A sense of either birthing higher self in oneself, or sense of need to purify and make proper changes for higher calling, work, and play.

   Strong sense thru to mid October of wanting to lose oneself to find oneself. Also of wanting to more deeply discover oneself to lose the crazy outer things bugging and eating at you. avoid ‘Creature Comforts’ of feeding astral entities. Fear is where lack of love. Anger takes away other’s freedom and its lack of honest need to keep learning for oneself better way to go rather than force or manipulation for results. For some a very amazing time of spiritual connection, artistic creative adventure, and new found inner freedoms. Its all about the training of the mind and the capacity to cognize and creatively interact. See tibetan lama Gelek Rimpoche book Odyssey to Freedom for lam rin gradual path. See Outline of Occult Science for Grail ‘gradual path’ of wisdom enlightenment.

October 14th Sun square Pluto and Moon conjunct Uranus. Negative emotions, using forceful tactics, projecting anger, guilt, blame, shame, jealousy, create more negativity and trouble. Have an opinion or personal facts but leave others free to get it on their own.  Things can happen really fast here. Many seem to be losing it. Panic and feelings of being overwhelmed need to be balanced by nature walks, slowing things down, chewing food better, yoga and exercise, getting enough sleep, and consciously striving and working one’s mind into working for higher attainment, study, learning, growing. Its a question of balancing work and play, balancing others with self willed learning and spiritual growth.

   For some its a question of taking good break from the come around go around repeat offenders and crazies, zombies, aliens, vampires, and negatives. Taking a break from what you can fix and retreat, retreat to heal, repair, renew, review, study, reflect, to re-emerge later.

    Second half of month influenced by Jupiter conjunct Ceres the Mother Astroid. Many feel like mothering or feel need to be mothered. Hearty oatmeals, soups, grains and greens, squash go far here to nourish, but we also need to nourish the soul with greater spirit truth and love. Yoga, reading, meditation, renewed vigor for self improvement rather than always trying to improve others and having results that ‘nothing is good enough’.

    Also second part in particular but all month, a sense of Demeter the Great Mother attempting to redeem that fallen part of us, that Persephone fallen or on an important mission in the underworld, earth, to redeem lost souls and parts to return to wholeness, being co-creative agency for positive change, gardening both earthy and spiritual awakening soul, higher angelic proclivity, virtue minded Spirit for the World, in a Word, ‘LOVE, higher Love. SparkSunshine to weave yr wings back on. (my song on youtube, ‘Weave your Wings” Weave love through every heart and mind, feeling at one with every other. There is One Light and Love, each is unique lampshade, cover and mask, art, over the oneness. Here there is no enemy, only temporary ignorance and illusion, lack of seeing truth holding us all. Be the love heals one and all. Unity in diversity. We are all born equal in our opportunity and chance of enlightenment, higher flowering of consciousness, love and truth. ‘We the People, for the People, by the People’  our Constitution and Bill of Rights, Declaration of Principles idealizes. Its not wee on the people, make fortunes off people, and buy the peoples. Its time to respect and honor all living. This takes education and love.Be the change you’re looking for. Share but make time for yourself.

Oct 15th Mercury in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces. Escapism or is it spiritual idealism inspiriting greater adventure? Take care not to be too busy that you miss your own subtle mind whispers of divine intent, fate, destiny, opportunity knocking.

Oct. 21st Venus trine Neptune. Ideals of love overtake one’s day to day mind. Good for planning the future, trips, adventures, music and the arts. Avoid too many sweet or burdening dead foods, this is a time to feel life, respond to a greater call of the wild. Primal instincts and dreams over ride mundane matters.

Oct. 23rd Sun enters Scorpio. Passion and selfishness struggle with necessity and inevitability. Fate and destiny clink glasses. Coming four weeks like a game of Truth or Consequences, bad karma or divine destiny. Watch and learn, pick a curtain and walk on through. Some more passionately throw themselves into the game, some turn cold. Remember to treat others how you would like to be treated. Have a strong opinion but leave others free to discover for themselves. Avoid making judgements and critique of others that serves no one good.
