AstroNews for August 2019
robert of mayflower, (248) 547-8227
All times mentioned EST. (aspects have an aura or orb of influence days before and after)
Note: This does not replace a reading or consultation, but indicates whats in the air, the vibe. When in the sky aspects aspect your own personal chart events occur. All planets have a higher and lower octave as stated in my book ‘Astrological Aspects, the Art’ available at all good bookstores.

July 31st New Moon at 8 Leo, and Mercury goes direct in sign of Cancer (after 11pm). Sudden shift into reality and priority needs. Strong impulse for something new to happen, or strong wish for home and deeper roots, better nourishment and intimacy, trustworthiness. A wish to remove oneself from ‘what doesn’t work’ for one’s present/future and align oneself with new event horizons. A wish to do something to enhance or beautify one’s life, next a next higher step.

Aug 1st to 2nd, Venus in Leo square Uranus in Pisces. Sudden creative love urge, or frustration. Sudden shifts in likes and dislikes, sudden stepping up of spirit, juiciness, aliveness, fiery intense alertness. Take care not to move too fast and make wrong moves causing quick reactions or emotional tension stress. Good for creative change, artistry, daring magic and creative arts. Short lived or passing fancies. Sudden love urges with little follow through or completion, or future. Stock Markets so very smartly controlled these days into all next week, not sure what up with this Venus/Uranus aspect. Could be bit of roller coaster with stocks, weather, politics, celebrities breaking up, or new starts. Creatively amped time for higher love and most noble knightly purpose and drive. Ego and pride need avoid hurting another’s feelings, feelings need head light but also higher love. One wants to shine, one wants to melt; take the high road to heaven and avoid hell’s negative emotions.

August 5-7th (into later in month) may be awkward time for Dow Jones with transit Neptune oppose Saturn. False inflation or depressed balloons? Great time to make the deal, or bad move? This time, also August 11th-12th when Jupiter goes direct from retrograde, and Uranus goes retrograde, while Moon occults Saturn/Pluto, could be strong market correction, possible drop, in markets, but oft astrology works just the opposite thus indicating big rise in markets especially because one good or wrong word and bang, plus very controlled by smart people. Yet, quirky times. Tricky dangerous time to gamble. In the world, many experience a kind of ‘Check Mate’ or need to pass on. Possible significant individuals or celeb personalities take this time to cross over into the spiritual worlds. . The
President has transit of Neptune square natal Uranus which may indicate a sensitive time feeling unsure but also intuitive, far seeing, and perhaps even spiritual experience. But its also time to keep practical and not get swindled nor freaked out by external events beyond one’s control. For sure can be confusing, but also visionary and highly idealistic. With Mars transit opposing Pres’ natal Mars, could be some heavy contesting and aggressive/reactive moves. Here there is danger of feeling threatening or being threatening, over reacting or being too assertive; need to avoid nasty remarks or reacting to such. Feisty aspects. Venus opposing natal Mars doesn’t help the love life much for Mr President, or does it? There is freedom in the stars. The planetary aspect impel, not compel; and one has freedom to rise above animal instinct to higher self, higher ethical universal freedom, truth, compassion, love. May we all learn to see that!
My new song ‘Thank God there is Love in this world!’ here

August 11th Jupiter goes direct making things, people events look forward motion like. Many future plans enacted. Many have big plans, lots of excitement and positive feel for the future at hand, in hand, and beforehand past present future participle; that is a sense of eternity in many moments passing by. A strong sense for reaching out to manifest dreams. Many feel pressure on like in musical chairs to dance and have fun quickly because when Saturn and Pluto conjoin in Capricorn end of this year , exact January 2020, the music stops and everyone will need a good chair, bed, job, home, as things and thinks get a little rougher, tougher, and colder.

August 15 Full Moon 22 Aquarius. Freedom and security controls both vie for attention. Freedom and necessity work to harmonize in coming days. Here, for many, a good sense of belonging to a greater wholeness, a spiritual and culturally artistic heart felt family. Mayflower Bookshop works to create a community of heart minds working and studying for a better world and a better tomorrow for all of us, each and all. Its the bookshop for an invisible spiritual university, one may say.

August 16, Mercury square Uranus, need to quickly readjust oneself as new facts come in. Here one’s mind catches up to one’s emotions which may have been trying to run the show for last few weeks. Nervousness and stress need healthy good release. Avoid knee jerk reactions. Perhaps meditation, yoga, nature outdoors walk, simple foods, chewing well, need to slow it down and breathe deeper. Relax into a greater wisdom view and long term take. On the other hand, stay awake to immediate needs and opportunities. Practice stillness, pure heart awareness. Be Peace. Be present yet eternally minded, heart minded. These days could be profoundly creative. Avoid mind racing and too much velocity causing mishap. Loose tongues have sunk ships, projects, dreams. Wilder music times, zany and playful for some.

Aug. 18 Mars enters Virgo. Time to become sharp dressed. Here clean goes a long way. Help self and others bring new order and realignment more in tune with bigger and smaller picture. Need to harmonize macrocosmic big yearnings with the simple be here now. Aug. 21 venus into Virgo, Aug 23 Sun into Virgo, then 24th Mars conjunct Venus. Next six days high romance (or contesting or fighting peace, love, romance). Yet Love and attainment, event, is strongly in the air. A wanting to throw out the old and refurbish, redress,renew, heal and fix up, clear up, clean up, or throw up and out. Whew! Good for fun if you keep it clean, upfront, honest, and light. Great for beautifying and making strong connection. Avoid negative un-constructive criticism.

Aug. 21 Venus into Virgo. Beautify by simplifying. Avoid over criticalness. Mercury trines Jupiter too, so over abundance of ideas, thought, plans positive. Eat light, keep tight, shine your heart light through words, tears, eyes and new sense of listening.

Aug. 23 Sun enters Virgo. Purify and neutralize negativity. Clarity and renewed spirit for right work, constructive productive work. New light on health issues. Its clear the days are getting shorter, take deeper breath within to find the spark.

Aug. 24 Venus conjunct Mars in Virgo. Notorious aspect for the purest part of you seeking adventure, the high and noble road of knighthood. Intense feelings of love. An electrical magnetic connection to another, a project, job, or adventure. A challenge to make more conscious instinctive thrusts or pulls to experience more unifying or creatively challenging project or relations. Take care to build up spiritual characters, not tear down, break down.

Aug 26 to 29th Venus trine Uranus, Mars trine Uranus, Sun trine Uranus and New Moon on 30th. Love and truth attempt a marriage here, good time to make promises worth keeping. Working for peace and love, creativity and heavenly estate. Positive spirited time for most. Strong feelings for the future, higher states of consciousness, mating, progressing, uplifting. Making good connections.
Major breakthroughs possible at this time. Both positive and healing, enlightening and brilliant. Love and truth attempt a marriage here, good time to make promises worth keeping. Working for peace and love, creativity and heavenly estate. Positive spirited time for most. Love and higher consciousness is in the air.
Aug 30 New Moon 6 Virgo with Moon conjunct Venus/Mars. A renewal of love contract or wish for new path, journey, goal and way to go. Next two weeks or more repair the past, and thruster rocket into better futures. Avoid loose words or negativity unable to pull the weed or deliver the goods.

Sept. 1 Mercury trine Uranus, Venus trine Saturn. Freedom of thought hands on, yet strong feelings of need for securing feelings. Heart centered on universal love with an eye for a higher goal, star, to follow is good!

Sept 2nd Sun conjunct Mars, Venus square Jupiter. A new or renewed clarity at work and play. Strong awarenesss of other or emerging self as it plays into interactions at work. Meetings with extraordinary person or situation, new insights, new opportunity if one wisely and clearly clarifies situation and is willing to share, invest, play, work, and act. This is intense time with sharp strong moves in markets, investments, and the weather, emotions, relations.

Sept 3rd Mercury conjunct Mars. Sun conjunct Mercury. Too much news, yet pertinent facts and insights flow in as to how to act in coming time. Avoid fights, arguments, unnecessary display of force. Good for research, higher truths, putting ideals into action.

Sept 4th Venus oppose Neptune. Idealism and rose colored glasses may call for the need of more practical thinking, yet romancing the future is magical at this time. Avoid overdoing anything. Avoid dreaming your life away. Work out, eat simple foods, stay practical, yet follow your dream and highest star. Work to realize and manifest, not sleepy dreamy wishing. Eat more grains and greens for clarity, chew longer!

Sept 5th Mercury trine Saturn. Practical concerns, security, bills, necessities, demand your attention. Patience and generosity with yourself and thoughts goes far at this juncture in time.

Sept 6th Mercury square Jupiter, Saturn trine Sun, Venus trine Pluto. Artistic and feeling adventure and play balance serious bottom line concerns. A deeper love keeps calling you to keep learning and growing. Love, home, security, as well as creative play, both have their say these days. Many seek to root deeper and more vastly flower Don’t just talk and watch, do something!

Sept 8th Sun square Jupiter, Mercury trine Pluto. Being really smart about everything is half the equation, being fun and playful, creatively interactive is the other two halves. Aha! Good for joyful good fortune but also serious research. Some paying bill for ill thought out investment of self, time, money. Others aligning and digging in for long run. Good for socializing with deeper minded, sure of heart, friends.

Sept 13-14 Full Moon in Pisces with Mars oppose Neptune ~
Lots of promises that can’t be kept? Dreams never to come true? Or many plans being activated? Take care to look before you leap, these are wild times with extremes in the weather. Fire and Water conflict. Enthusiasm with too much emotion can dampen the party. Too much fire either enkindles love or anger. Important to keep compassionate understanding for the hard times some struggle with. Hard to be wise these days, so love unconditionally. Mars/Neptune can be poisoning or illness due to bad or spoiled food. Need to eat lighter and avoid too rich of foods. Mars/Neptune can also indicate lies or crazy inflated statements. Weird weather and strange psychic phenomena. Mars is cars, guns, military….., so with Neptune its important not to be too cocky or off in perceptions, misfiring. Danger around machines, travel, car. On another note, the future is fighting for presence. Strange experiments and dreams. For some great sense of mothering, motherhood, and taking care of others, compassion. A need for better environment, water and air, love and peace, creativity.
Democratic Debates take place on full moon. Crazy time. Fighters with too much energy and angst (if not anger), meet with idealists, peacemakers, and dreamers, futurists, and even levity and flotation devices. Many will like the unsureness or zany side of these times needing hearty keen wisdom insight, good humor but not insanity. A need for genius bringing together heaven and earth into heart and smile and awareness for real.

Sept 18th Saturn direct from retrograde. Reality and sure way to go kicks in now. Better facts and necessities now show their real face and crack a whip to continue on. Strong moves by higher ups and big corporations to solidify their move, gain, power, control. Here its the philosophy of the carrot or the stick; if urge for freedom makes an appearance, all the better.

Sept 19 Robert of Mayflower Talk in Birmingham Community House, ‘Meditation and the Mind of Yoga’. 7 to 9 pm.

Sept 21 Jupiter square Neptune finalizes and completes many a karma, fantasy, dream, deep feeling urge. Disappointment in speculative adventure. False dreams crash to reality in coming weeks as we head to Saturn Pluto conjunct Jan. 2020. For some crash course in reality, for others need to make it real or drop it, what isn’t growing into the future nor becoming more real, must fade away or fail. Fantasies or delusions/illusions of last year on last legs. Many ready now to put up or shut up. Time to manifest one’s higher self, destiny, or calling ~ or jump ship? Good time to practice stillness until clear light of wisdom and compassion emerge. Dream come true or Sink in the Blues time? Well that is up to you! Great time for deepening spiritual experience, research, adventure, love.

Sept 22 Mercury square Saturn. Reality sets in. Many face tough choices, and need to think things out more clearly, practically.Some patiently buy time. Avoid drinking or smoking things out more unclearly. If ready unfold your plan and act on it. Work things out or try to leave what has you depressed or squeeze boxed into too little of mind/heart/soul to grow wings. One can be enlightened anywhere, even in hell. Read/study Rudolf Steiner, Osho, Gelek Rinpoche’s Tibetan Buddhism, the Divine Pomander, Plotinus, Manly Hall, Yoga, all that. Live the Life, study the art, deepen your spiritual soul science. Get the right tools, right books! Mayflower Bookshop has em! Blessings.

“One has to be clearly conscious of the fact that in our time, although there is an influx of insights streaming in from the spiritual world, insights which are necessary for humankind today, it is very difficult nowadays to be uninhibited in taking these truths in. Most people who are not well prepared to receive it will experience the deeper spiritual-scientific truths as a shock, as something which appears as fantastic or as a dream”.
~Rudolf Steiner

In breath to heart listening, see stillness space core sacred soul.
Here, all experience, is digested into the elixir of wisdom,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nov. 24th Neptune goes direct from retrograde at 14 Pisces.

Time to be the truth and love you seek in others. Now is the time to live the dream and make your way. Here the end doesn’t not justify the means. Here the way to go is to live the life to know the truth…, the means and way is the end, and many a new beginning if need be.

Strong urge to free or be free. Sudden arousal of the creative or love urge, though hasty quick moves one may regret or may backfire. Often sudden, but short lived connections. Nice for artsy social crafting novel ad lib creative times.

Dec. 2 Sun square Mars makes for news requiring immediate action, but anger or hasty actions or reactions can destroy one’s good karma here.

Good time to make good karma helping others less fortunate. Time for patience and compassion for those stressed or going to extremes to find better luck and happiness.

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