Astrological Hotspots for April 2019 (events may trigger within three days of aspect, for some stronger aspects within week or more. Look to your own natal chart and transits for more exact prognosis).

“Know thyself.” ~Socrates

April 2nd for few days in USA chart transit of Venus opposes USA ascendent while conjunct USA Uranus, lots of good and difficult love/sex energies. Depending on other aspects in chart, can be either really fun or troublesome when it comes to relationships, money, fun. Highly creative and lively for some.
April 5th New Moon ~ In Aries brings new initiatives and attempts at forward motion for fire signs. Cardinal signs feel forced to grow or feel thwarted. Opportunities arise next two weeks but nothing seems safe enough. Acting out of freedom is good when creative artistic sense of good, true, beautiful prevail. Here deeper feelings of the heart need conjoin head long impulsive thrusts.

“I cannot teach anybody anything. I can only make them think”
― Socrates

The division of philosophy and poetry is an illness
(..or truth and music for that matter. -me).

April 9th-10th Venus conjunct Uranus, Sun square Saturn, Jupiter stationary retrograde, and mercury sextile pluto. Big news days around this time. Lots of crazy events, over the top, and bottom lines. Need to feel alive and creative within safe boundaries. Trying to control others or give ultimatums can backfire here; yet creativity and expressions of freedom hard to hold back. Sudden creative urges for love/sex/creativity arise but must find long term productivity and co-creative mutual coordination with other(s) or face tough road conditions and severe weather, karmic retro fallback. Here freedom clashes with authority or old time religion. Over idealized projections here get grounded. For some its a time of hard earned fun and pleasure, traveling or plans to travel. Tendency to be too over the top happy go lucky, or too serious and overworked. Strong need to rethink what will truly help one be happy at both work and play. Some parts sweet times and weather, other parts severe weird extremes in weather, hot and cold vibes. Lots of energy to accomplish the mission. Be sure not to use force or cold power plays when warmth and loving kindness would have opened the door for you.

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” ~Socrates

April 12th Sun square Pluto. In USA Chart with Sagittarius Rising, Mars transit is opposing USA Ascendent and conjuncting Uranus; could be a wild couple days here with sudden shocks or crashes or shoot outs or alarming news and heavy debate once again about guns and ‘everything’. Many may feel like their being attacked. We do seem to be in a scapegoat mentality as well as a ‘fight to be free’ intensification. Good side of Mars is courage for truth and bravery/bravado. For some its spring time and OMG feelings of dying to be born or reborn again. Avoid feeling pulled down by over indulgence or negative vibrations. Good time to turn over a new leaf, exercise, better one’s diet, rejuvenate or degenerate aspect. Avoid jealousy and negative emotions. Feelings of death and rebirth, endings and new beginnings. Where a door closes , a new chapter begins.

We can easily forgive a child
who is afraid of the dark,
the real tragedy of life
is when men are afraid of the light.

“Strong minds discuss ideas, average minds discuss events, weak minds discuss people.” ~Socrates

April 14th , Sun trine Jupiter and Venus sextile Pluto makes for a pleasant day for many, intimacy and friendships, socially good and friendly joyful, outgoing, positive energetic for travel, play, sharing.

“By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.” ~Socrates

April 15th Venus square Jupiter, love yourself and others, be the peace and love you hope to receive. Avoid over doing or worrisome thoughts gnawing.

“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”
― Socrates

April 18- 19th Full Moon 29 Libra. Sense trying to find balance and charm in life. Need to cut out people, relations, things, that drain and leak, not promoting nor supporting better futures. Important with Moon going into Scorpio 8:40 am est, that for next week to lay low, avoid unneeded going nowhere debates or criticisms. Pretty much crass materialists always blame and dependent on others for their depression, sadness, happiness. Spiritual people blame themselves, work on themselves, for change and progress. Sometimes we can changer outer for better, yes; but always work on yourself for the big changes, growing opportunities, and sense of well being. See Gelek Rinpoche’s Odyssey to Freedom book, or Osho’s Book of Secrets (on sale at mayflower bookshop), or Steiner’s Knowledge of the Higher Worlds for techniques to know and grow, spiritually advance quick.

“Learning to see things in light of a higher learning, a divine plan perhaps taking lifetimes to play out, is the beginning of wisdom. Entering the spiritual path consists of learning how to quicken what nature is taking too long to do; learning how to midwife or awaken the divine, the virtue, in all things and people; learning to intelligently love the core, the Christos, the sun spark, the holy deep divine, in and of any situation or person while learning to be still if nothing can be done. For spiritually advanced players, nothing can be done for sure. The Holy Emptiness is the virgin possibility at core, the infinite potential and virtue of ultimate truth and love. Always good to get the truth first, then sweet the flow and flower to follow. When love comes first its hard truth that follow.” ~robert of mayflower

April 20 Sun enters Taurus, Venus enters Aries. Buddha’s Birthday coming full moon of May! Here one feels like grounding, making something happen, manifest, grow; but also push for some thing new and more colorful to arrive and/or find you.

“Always prefer knowledge to wealth, for the one is transitory, the other perpetual.” ~Socrates

April 22 Sun conjunct Uranus. Lots of patience needed in love life, intense friendships, emotional drama now into end of month. Things in your life not bringing desired results are intensified and under scrutiny. Have patience and compassion with yourself and loved ones as you work for right solutions and doors to open, close, and open again. Such Uranus aspect now brings strong urge to rise to the next higher level in the game or investment of time/money/self. Short lived successes. A quickening or a sudden shifting of gears to make it or break it, shake it up, and wake it up. Earth shaking news or more just plowing through no matter what. For many a reversal or sudden turn of events causing stir and reconsideration of the map. Revelations and sudden facts shift the picture and direction.

“When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.” ~Socrates

April 24th-25th Pluto goes retrograde and moon occults Saturn and Pluto. Serious moon for a few days. Big time power plays and legal matters occupy the mind for some. Difficulties top down, bottom up. Many step back and take serious look at last year and year to come. Many deep minded researchers and investor reviewing and taking hard look at future. Things have way of dragging out……good or bad. Could be too cold in parts, other parts too hot.

‘Truth whose center is everywhere….whose existence we cannot dis-imagine.’ ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

April 26-27 Mars square Neptune. Although good aspect for the wild high side of the arts/music/romance and active imagination, movies; such aspect can get too colorful and off track in more practical material matters. Mishaps, accidents, danger of making serious mistakes, lies, wrong words, insane actions, car or machine troubles, water/sea/oceanic/space craziness. Hard to tell the truth or what is really truly up aspect. Misguided intentions and good intentions paving the road to hell with idiot compassion and foolish masquerade. Deceit or caught in the act, deception, desire to escape or disappear, strange news, fears and phobias. Theft/lies/lipstick/inflation followed by deflation. Sometimes very good for the arts and music, but just as often things go astray. Good time to read Rudolf Steiner’s deepest books, get a new water filter, avoid foods too rich or toxic, avoid over doing meds, drugs, alcohol, garden, get outdoors, write songs and poems. Staying grounded and practical down to earth honest simple best policy with this aspect. Strange dreams around this day need be written down and thought about. Avoid foods that spoil easy. Try not to spoil self or other these daze. UFO and weird sightings, ghosts and more, abound. Imaginative experience and make believe.

Divine Souls are older and younger than themselves and other things. ~ Emerson

April 29th, Saturn goes retrograde till mid august making Capricorns, Cancer, Libra, Aries rethink their long term goals and needs for security while not limiting their creative imaginations for joy, good luck, happiness. Tendency for some parts to be too hot, others too cold. Saturn retrograde good for regulating, disciplining a bit for progress toward securing goals, good for yoga/meditation/exercise/healthy eating/not over indulging. Taurus and Virgo, even Capricorns may benefit at this time with rooting in deeper and achieve well earned rewards, happy returns, maturing of wisdom qualities. So many now may have or feel the ‘cold shoulder’ (Saturn near S.Node makes it hard to escape or ‘get off’ ground. Patience wins the day when humor and good work applied. Good for long slow dinners with friends. As Saturn transit retrogrades to square USA Saturn and nearly oppose USA Sun, could be tough time for farmers, heavy controls on Stock Markets to keep positive spirit, and further needs to address out of hand addictions in country; beer/food prices rising?!

“The great things of this world are not born in noise and tumult, but in intimacy and stillness.” ~Rudolf Steiner

May 4th New Moon weekend with Mars oppose Jupiter is well deserved jump into summer party and social time of outdoors and play, networking interacting, joyous.

Blessings, Joyful Heart good times!

Astrology Predictions and Spiritual Insights March 2019 Update

March 4th, 2019

AstroNews ~ All Signs Affected strongly this month!
March 5th Mercury goes retrograde in late Pisces Impelling some to cling on to their dreams, imaginative possibilities, ideal futures; and for others….projections of fantasy and let down. Stay practical with long term goals in mind. Inflation, escapism, fantasies are afoot! Don’t trust UFO sightings nor appearances of the Virgin Mary. Lots of revelations of love gone bad and sour investments. Some make dreams come true, others awash in winter blues and cold reality. A sense of pending events and wild chaotic dreams or reflections. Keep a journal. Poets go mad with wonder and awe with such aspects, as do romantics and musicians.
Some feel immediate need for renewed action, escape, vs more practical workings getting down to earthy results.
Lots of Pisces/Neptune energy can bring snow and rain, tears and pain, fake news and bad investments/gambles, feeling helpless or lost. WEIRD Weather, space news, psychic phenomena, ghosts in the White House, and more.
Some make music and song to make the time wise go by, good food and friends, hugs and love. Some need to find new ways to love along. Some thrown into the unconscious, others into higher creative arts, music, compassionate spiritual activities, yoga and meditation; contemplative reflective modes. Spiritual Compassionate moods prevail. Take care to believe in your own higher self attuned to universal good/true/beautiful……enlightenment, cosmic consciousness, Christ Consciousness, Buddha Dharma, call it what you will ~ Virtue Mind Training in the Invisible University of the Heart (A Mayflower Adventure)! Time willing to manifest and make real ones stillness inner listening and world word endeavor.
Others may let you down this week, but don’t let yourself down; stay heart centered, listening, learning, shining, listening more.
With early March aspects, then Mercury retrograde conjunct Neptune March 24th not going direct till march 28th ~ Look for a very idealistic month of shooting for the moon, crashing on a dream, lies and lipstick, fake news to the max, danger of not looking at the small print, feelings and emotions overriding common sense and rational practical reasoning. For some a quiet retreat from the storm of separate self. For some its time to beautify and learn to develop one’s own psychic intuitive capacities. Mayflower Bookshop of course is the invisible college of the heart soul bookshop for perfect spiritual learning books, incense, crystals, statues, and artifacts to help you on your way. Rudolf Steiner books, Osho, Theosophy, Buddhism, Magic, Witchy Wit and more available to open that spirit soul door!

March 6th New Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune ~wow! Look for dreamy creamy melting times here. Many go unconscious and its all too much the world and individual situation. Others know big time karma and world destiny, past and future lives are afoot! With Neptune be sure to look before you leap. Many plans for the future in the works here. Also could be a wet or emotional time in coming weeks. Tears and letting go? Or good rid of rubbish? Psychic premonitions and meaningful (or crazy) dreams. Marriage plans or love melting away, leaving? Good for soul mating but wrong turns may be soul meltings and left abandoned or lost at sea. Dreams and ideals, future plans either melt away or take steps in coming true. Mutable signs and houses melting or aspiring, lost or newly found ~ Pisces, Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius.
Uranus goes into Taurus on March 6th till 2025 shaking up fixed ideas and signs Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius, Leo. Fixed signs want to get aggressive but fear past mistakes coming back again. Go for long term is safe but not fast enough in results? Karma at play here and deeper meditation needed perhaps with both fixed and cardinal signs Capricorn, Libra, Cancer, Aries. What once was secure needs now go to the higher level yet root deeper in both wisdom and learning from experience and world coming at you, future coming at you. See your chart for what houses and areas of life need to rise to higher level rather than just get pushed out of position and nest egg. Stock markets may be shook up or up and down a bit for next weeks. (see individual chart for unique situation).
Full Moon Equinox has Mars trine Pluto for very strong persuasive moves by power brokers and corporate plutocrats. Can be good for world peace and economics but the lot of Neptune aspects make you wonder what’s real or not. Big love month, or big mouth month and a sense of losing the dream or falling out of love. Some finally fall in. All astrological aspects have a higher octave and lower octave that can be invoked and worked. My book mentioned below goes way into that as well as esoteric descent and ascent of soul in any particular situation.
Look to Full Moon and day after with venus square mars for the fire works good or bad, tough or rough, or intensely pleasing able to spark and sparkle one’s trust and lust for life.
March 28th-29th with Mercury going direct will give us cold reality both in feelings, emotions, politics, economics, and weather. Pluto conjuncts Moon’s South Node which makes for the best or worse love making at every level. We need a completely new conversation about what is love, sex, marriage, family, tribe, community, life, and responsible sustainable life style for healthy earth, future, life.
Hopefully warm by mid April with Sun trine Jupiter?
Spiritual awakening to the virtue mind stream of heart soul compassion to everything in the world can make miracles happen. Its about listening to the stillness within and the crazy world without with compassionate willingness to learn anew again and again till we are all friends! There is no ‘God’ unless we prove it by the way we live.
Its a great time to be musically sound, listen to your breath in throat weaving heart and head. Wish for peace for the world and creative heart mind awakening gently, energetically, wisely, in time and rhythm with all in all. Meditative, attune, be One in the many, many in the One. May the Great Goddess Sophia Wisdom, May the World Work, Word, World Soul, Higher Self (call it what you will), be the miracle, co-creative with you. May love be your humble listening stillness learning, being, seeing, believing, living. May happiness find us …
Blessings this winter into spring,

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest criticss and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

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

Jan 2nd Sun conjunct Saturn. For some a revival these next few weeks, for others a sick and tired of it all, ache and cold and depressing wintery outlook. Extremes in the weather, politics, economics, emotions into lunar eclipse superman moon on 21st! Also a ‘What the heck happened last month, last year, wake up call’ kind of aspect. For some, a hang over of unfinished business or neglect. A sense of things taking more time to work itself out or to manifest all idealized or dreamed for. A wanting of bottom line, get to the real point, lets do the job. A sense of coming down to earth with need to be practical with work at hand, future plans. Bringing light to difficult situations or having to face difficulties with right light of thinking. Necessity to make strong decisions ‘for’ or ‘against’ something. Need for more discipline and focus, concentration.

President Trump’s transit of Jupiter trine progressed Pluto in his chart Jan.6 into his transit of Jupiter conjunct his natal Moon Feb. 23rd makes for luck in resolving problems. Look to January 3rd into Solar Eclipse on Jan 5th, and Uranus direct on Jan 6th for tricky time for President with Pluto during that time square to his progressed Ascendent, sticky icky and perplexing times, power struggles.

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

Jan 5th New Moon Eclipse in capricorn conjunct saturn may indicate pretty cold and/ tough hard times for some this coming month. Authoritative tone? Procrastination? Delays? Tough couple weeks ahead, progress slow; for some slow and sure. For others its nose to the grindstone, hard work, and a deeper appreciation for lasting friends, qualities, virtues, wisdom books, practicality, grounding, long view in mind, sincere warmth of the heart. Good time to make soup and friends, grains and make amends, greens and free one’s long term vision and goals by taking first steps. Good time to read Theosophy, Osho, Steiner, Manly Hall, NeoPlatonists, Tibetan Buddhism, and my book ‘Astrological Aspects, the Art’.January 1, 2019, transiting North Node oppose Pluto ` Intense experiences New Year’s Eve into New Year Day powerfully pushing one to strongly change one’s ways or get side tracked or pushed out in the difficulties and negative emotions. Good time to confess your love and wish for connection, not disconnect. Possible difficulties trusting, sharing, caring, believing in. Need to re-invest, or is it wanting to not invest in some one or something any more. Jealousy and negative emotions can over ride clear thinking. Need to purify or rid oneself of inner and outer toxic environments. This intense time of emotions and weather weirdly pushes us into Jan. 4th when Jupiter transit semi squares Pluto in USA Chart adding tensions to change or be changed by outer circumstances beyond one’s control or mind set. For some, power alliances arise. For some, forcing one’s own way on others brings negative and ill effect. Saturn semi square USA moon on jan 5th adds to the depressive cold mood. Could be severe weather and tough politics or social mood. Or do all these aspects indicate a great Spirit for change and progress, purifying and again trying to raise one’s consciousness to the virtues taught by every great religion throughout all time?
The eclipse of Sun on Jan. 5th brings a sense of no going back, only going forward. Saturn transit oppose USA Sun Jan. 17th 2019 gives extremes in weather (cold cold cold in parts) and a sense that a lot has to change to bring about better state of affairs. Trouble with higher ups. Law and order vs love and play. Legal haggles and self assertion, resistance to change. Life may seem an endurance test at this time where its hard to see the fruits of one’s labor, nor happy futures. Need for discipline and long term view. A call for wisdom and deeper love. Happiness when alone for some.

Listen within yourself and look into the infinitude of Space and Time. there can be heard the songs of the Constellations, the voices of the Numbers, and the harmonies of the Spheres. ~Hermes

January 6, Uranus Direct. Sudden shift in perspective or view, re-energized enthusiasm for projects vs. dumping projects for new view. Are there breakthroughs or breakdowns in communications? Both? Sense of real lasting change coming. Jan. 6th celebrates Amitabh Buddha of the Boundless Light, also the day Jesus is baptized in water and fire of Holy Spirit, as well as the day the 3 wise men found the Virgin Mary and babe Jesus. Ancient Egypt tells the same story of 3 Magi or Magician Astrologers, wise men following the Star to virgin ISIS mother of Horus Hermes known as the good Shepard who writes the Sermon on the Mount about virtue overcoming non virtue.

“From orgasmic experience or ecstatic communion of higher union with life, we evolve into love. From love we come to awareness or universal mind, Plato’s Nous, the Christos, Hermes, the Word. It is the thinking in all things harmonizing eventually into pure Prayer, Mantra, whisperings of deepest cave of kundalini in heart soul. After that there is Nothing, a pure listening, a pure Emptiness, a calm abiding Space equanimity, a nothing to stop you from being your Self and mediating, mediating, all the gifts God has bestowed upon you flowering to all, As Above So Below, on earth as it is in heaven. Mediation is the fourth way, the way of listening to who is listening, watching who is watching, experiencing directly what is in every heart wishing to flower. There is no other way to go, for we are love and truth and becoming, being.” ~robert of mayflower

Jan. 9th Day celebrating the ancient chanting of Dirge over the Slain Osiris by Isis and Nephthys.

“Grief and wrath, avarice and desire, delusion and laziness, vindictiveness and vanity, envy and hatred, censoriousness and slander, are the twelve sins destructive of man’s bliss.”

Jan. 11 Sun conjunct Pluto. Sense of completion, or need to complete things before going forward. New or renewed light on problems, troubles, complexities, and dark deep state matters. A sense of degeneration or regeneration. Need to avoid non constructive criticism and scapegoating. A sense of need to change self to change world, need for compassion, need for sound clear thinking to steer unconscious instincts and passion.

At times, earth is a prison planet, a hospital planet, and you and me are either the prisoner or patient. In time we become the healer, gardener, guardian, cook, mom and dad of the soul life.
~robert of mayflower

Never say anything bad about the dead, you may wake them up.
~Trebore Tau Bodhi

Jan 13th Jupiter square Neptune, first of 3. A tendency to fantasize, imagine, escape, space out, get too high or inebriated, or to neglect priorities and necessities. On the other hand, the higher octave, brings forth selfless helpfulness, compassion, higher unions and trysts of spiritual imagination, inspiration, and intuition. A sense of higher morality, ethics and virtue, impelling one to journey, quest, voyage, and aspire to high deeds, adventure, love. Jan. 13th celebrates the Arch Druids HU or Hesus, successor of Abaris.

Its easier to fool people than to convince them that why have been fooled. ~Mark Twain

We have been accused of being dreamers, but they forgot; we are also the reason rhyme and work of the dream come true. If there isn’t a God or a Good True Beautiful, we will create it and become it. ~robert of mayflower

Jan. 20 Sun enters Aquarius and Venus square Neptune. A sense of universal love and justice or the need for such. For some false ideals and hopes may crash or need more realistic view. Good for the arts but some over do the sweet and spin out of control or go unconscious. Distractor factors abound yet freedom calls.

Love always works miracles, its the anger, jealousy, attachment, block the magic.Truth is holding still long enough for the miracle of love to reappear. ~robert of mayflower

Jan. 21 Lunar Eclipse SuperMoon in Leo, Mars in Aries square Saturn in Capricorn. Hard work and honesty begins to pay off. A need to be straight forward and up front, not hide from oneself nor other with purpose and intent. Danger around cars or travel, tough weather in parts, harsh words may fail true purpose. Arguments and fighting in high and low places. Forceful intent may backfire. Good for honest clear work and thinking, long term commitment if not feeling stuck. Some fight the feeling of being locked in. Patience, compassion, in the taoist flow bending like grass in the wind may prove the better way than negative thinking and projecting.

The spiritual soul is immortal in each and everyone of us. To remember this is to have a bit of patience when all hell breaks loose. Karma and Reincarnation is a fact as sure as Compassion is an eventual inevitability one gives oneself and other. Some wait till the last moment before transition, but compassion and love is all that carries on to this and the next life. ~robert of mayflower

Jan. 22 Venus conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius. Reaching out to connect, expand, enjoy, encounter, play and love, lucky aspect for some. Good aspect for being sweet, forgiving, making amends, playfully engaging, expressing one’s highest love and ideals. Higher ethics abound. Good news day, people helping people.

All liars are afraid to totally love and trust. ~trebore tau bodhi

Jan 23 Mercury square Uranus. Surprising news adjusts the way to go. Moments of genius yet need to not act too hastily without all the facts. Haste makes waste, take care to read the fine print and watch quick words which may back fire or lead astray. Genius moments spark the day but oft miss the mark.

All Genius needs a lover, but not to come too quick before the magic is fully flushed out into manifestation. ~Aria Fairchild

Jan 24 Mercury enters Aquarius, bold innovative insights to dealing with old problems. Urge to free yet secure.

Real freedom is something awakens within the deepest heart and soul as a recognition and work in progress with every other heart and soul. ~robert of mayflower

Jan. 25 Mars trine Jupiter. Joyful assertive energy. Need to not over due or go to excess. Too much of a good thing can go bad or spoil affair. Fun aspect for adventure and play, starting out on new journey or adventure, or furthering the cause. Day celebrating conversion of St.Paul in christian tradition.

Jan. 28th celebrates Zoroaster, Divine Teacher from about 1200 BC.

Jan. 29 Moon conjunct Jupiter. Happiness and joy here are contagious. Be the good, true, beautiful, loving one rather than looking outside oneself; shine it, be it, live it. Luck and love abound, for others stay calm and don’t be a fool. Too much laughing and joking or not enough humor leads to difficulties. Smile, its a move holds the sky of infinite possibilities.

The birth of happiness is dependent on the fertility and impregnation of greater truth heart accepted. Without this truth love goes astray, misconceives true aim and goal, conscious freedom, peace and harmony, for the world. ~robert of mayflower

Jan.31 Saturn sextile Neptune and Moon conjuncts (occults) Venus. Desire to balance love and work, work and play, spiritual and material concerns. Avoid overdoing or undergoing, find a middle way to work through day and week to come. Travel or future plans abound.

Give unto Caesar what is Caesars, to God what is God’s, to Higher Self be selflessly sure. ~Trebore Tau Bodhi

Feb. 1st Mars in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn. Difficult aspects often associated with good guys, bad guys; guns, violence, apprehending, anger, jealousy, negative emotions, lack of understanding and compassion, compulsive use of force. For some, need to push forward and attempt to open new doors. For others its time to forgive and let go, flow where life takes you and not fight the curve or wave. Good for inner and outer research, renewal, pulling out and starting something new, working to change self for the better rather than blaming others, shaming others, making guilty. No shame of blame, just learning. In the news though many accusations and secrets exposed. Crazy time when more wisdom needed to grow rather than force change.

Spiritually speaking; use no force other than the force of love and compassion, wisdom and truth, presence still a’witness to the divine true me and you. ~robert of mayflower

June 2019 Pluto trine USA Neptune, again Sept 2019
Deeply moving practical material and spiritual events, experiences, help all see we are one planet, one family of friends, co-creative with the future. Opportunities for world peace and peaceful resolutions appear now. This aspect very well may force many to grow up and face the coming Aquarian Age due in part dec. 2020 with Jupiter conjunct Saturn in Aquarius. Last Jup/Sat in Aquarius several hundred years ago when Gothic Cathedrals built, much philosophy and spiritual Grail Quest, the alchemy of Angels, Chartres and the blending of east and west, Plato and Aristotle thinking united ancient ‘pagan’ and modern free thought. Age of Consciousness Soul and new World Views emerged and newly emerging now. Some experience the resuscitation of the dead, but for others a renewed sense of love for all the earth and the rhythm of stars that animate us.

“The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
but i have promises to keep,
and miles to go before i sleep,
and miles to go before i sleep.
~Robert Frost

Reprint from November news ~ Aug 10 2019 progressed moon oppose natal Sun USA CHART! Full moon experience; many take it to the limit one more time.
Jupiter aspects in USA chart in Nov. 2019 favor democrats methinks. More on this later.

From November 2018 astronews much of which active now~
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.
(that and december prediction talk available to purchase by sent email)

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.

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

December 9th, 2018
Just after Apollo sunset tonight (dec. 9 into10), red crescent moon in southwest looking like the ‘bow’ and ‘bow wow’ for Eros (Cupid) Arrow pointing at angle down to earth westwards. I actually swear i felt Artemis opening the bow of new moon to full with Athena and Hermes at each of m’ears. The Etheric Forces of Sunshine growing into Astral urge to grow, do something, learn and ground, root and flower in our souls. Good Omen sign for next few weeks to avoid anger, seeing oneself separate from others and world soul process. Avoid judging others where it doesn’t help them and becomes ‘excuse & escape’ for not working on oneself, a form of spiritual laziness. Avoid one up manship, or onewomanship, acting hastily our of fear or anxiety, impatience. Good sign for ending wrong directions and impossible projects, relations; and starting off in new(or renewed) directions with whole heartedness and 99% of yr mind behind it. Keep an X Factor that there is always something further to learn good for all us. Perhaps Artemis moon bow and Phoebus sun’s arrow of fohatic light pointing west is about manifesting our angelic intelligence, our higher self and dream come true, completing things so something more can drop in or arise.
For sure getting earthy and supersensible, sensuously super loving lovely as we head for full moon venus (Athena, Psyche, Goddess love aspects Dec. 21-22 solstice time. Venus also the way we inwardly integrate experience to find wisdom and light. Solstice to Christmas recapitulates last 4 earth evolutions and then the following 12 days of Christmas reveals secrets of the new year to come as well as next three earth evolutions. (See my book and Outline of Occult Science by Steiner, or my talks on such). The wisdom of the ancients thot, thoth, thought and taught, real new moon 3 days after what we call new moon, or more practically speaking, after dec. 8th new moon these 3 days set the stage for next two if not four weeks. So Happy esoteric New Moon today into tomorrow which is the NeoPlatonist Porphyry, student of Plotinus birthday 234 AD. At Mayflower Bookshop we got their writings, books, and more, the vibe. We’re just over lots of tough astrological aspects as you see reflected in markets, politics, money, weather, and more. Lots of good aspects now coming into play these next weeks. My next Astrology Predictions 2019 on talk Dec. 27th 730pm, call mayflower for tickets or to buy recording of it~ (248) 547-8227.
Blessings, robert of mayflower
ps. if Dane Rudhyar and i right about USA Chart, Jupiter is about to conjunct ascendent in about week or more indicating lots of happy people in good ol’USA for a spell. One would think things would lighten up and at least ‘appear’ hopeful for  awhile. Lots of good luck and happy times for many. Thank the Lucky Stars for Heaven Sakes.
Mayflower open almost every day to Christmas ….. many visiting from out of town showing up as well as good ol’friends and new ones. Blessings holy on your times.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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