From Aug. 30th Subscription note, also posted on my Facebook —

“Look Out! Here it Come! The infamous Mercury Retrograde as of this morning Aug Hag 30th followed by Solar Eclipse Sept.1st in Virgo forming T-Square with Neptune and Saturn. What does it mean? Many in coming weeks either rise, fall, wrangle and wrestle, some ascend in matters of health, job, and future plans of travel, education, religious belief systems. You know something is wrong when mass market supermarkets are selling pumpkins and ghastly halloween stuff starting in heat wave drought august here in the midwest america! The Sun/Moon square to Saturn Sept. Eclipse portends of some serious bottom lines. Keep straight and honest in whatever you practice and work, meditation and yoga, healthy diet, wisdom and patience are called for. Some parts of world suffering the stormy, quake and volcano uptick, warring parts, ecological mishaps, and a big need for bigger love and insight. May all beings find happiness and the means to happiness. A wonderful book for these times is Self Reliance by Emerson, or anything pretty much by Gelek Rinpoche, Manly Hall, Rudolf Steiner, H.P.Blavatsky, Osho, Swami Yogananda, or even my book Astrological Aspects, the Art. Get on the mailing list for talks coming up and new book on the Tarot.”

Robert’s News and Views for September 2016

September 1st New Moon Solar Eclipse 9 Virgo with Sun square Saturn and Sun oppose Neptune September 2nd.Strange endings and new beginnings. Need to dry out, retire, lay back, let go, do little clean ups everywhere, plan big adventures with far reaching plans. Some root, others fly, some find ground, others sky. Seek a balance between the heaven and hell you perceive.

“There is a heavenly way to self and other experienced only by the path of the heart, woven by the breath of an open mind, and guided alone by an inner star, being our perpetual conversing with God; that is, the universe.”
—robert of mayflower

September 9th Jupiter enters Libra creating more harmony and peace, art, justice, and new or renewed love and friendship for the year to come. This year here coming is prepping us for major world events in 2020, hopefully leading us to world peace, grace, and higher wisdom intelligence. But for this month coming, many plans in the works, some see the future, others fall back; some leave town, while yet others retrieve what was lost, now found. Libra want balance between self and other, fairness and justice, love and grace, with a willingness to give self and energies for good cause.

“Handle a book as a bee does a flower, extract its sweetness but do not damage it.”
― John Muir

September 10th Saturn square Neptune (third and final square). Think 33 years ago, think 16 and half years ago, or 8 and a quarter years ago, or 4 years ago, or 2. Practical needs clash with idealistic higher views and wishes. Bottom lines clash with high-flinging ideals. Spiritual and Material matters work to find harmony and balance or conflict. Some ascend to higher levels, others feel trapped in Hades, some feel crucified to fixated notions, some feel justified or blame others for failures. Some get back to working on themselves to change outer circumstance and karma.

“The highest of all occult orders which exists only in the inner world may be called the “Order of Melchizedek,” although among certain nations it has other names. This Order is composed entirely of the graduates of the other Mystery Schools who have actually reached the point where they can give birth to their present selves out of their own natures, like the mysterious phoenix bird which, breaking open at death, permits a new bird to fly forth.”
―Manly P. Hall, ‘Melchizedek and the Mystery of Fire’
(Melchizedek is ancient high priest or God-chosen one introducing the mysteries of the fire of love and the communion of virtue and God-like behaviour to the ancient Persians.)

Mid September to end of September has strange aspects to USA Chart concerning Neptune indicating events very difficult to figure out exactly what is happening. Difficult events concerning trips to space, oceanic activities, perhaps storm and rain, weird violence or unconscious acts of negative outcome. Neptune is need for ‘God on our side’ or mothering, but at higher levels Neptune is the Great Mother, the love compassion of mother to child. From spiritual point of view, we need to mother the divine child within our heart and soul. With Jupiter coming to trine USA Uranus mid October “There is no religion higher than truth.” —H.P. Blavatsky, author of ‘The Secret Doctrine’

September 11th Venus square Pluto. Major aspect for jealous behaviour and crazy love fights. False vanity and taking things too personally, often wanting to do harmful acts to self or other. This aspect calls for much compassion and loving kindness. A sense of injustice. If you can pull it off, deep love works wonders and miracles. One misfire though, and things explode. Old issues and fears conflict with present future needs. Deep sense of wanting to know, love, deepen, commit, enjoin, or part. Feeling stuck with situations vs. manipulating circumstances to better or change. A secret love or longing for the impossible. Secrets exposed. Very power feelings that raise one to next higher level, or sink one into new lows. More crazy insights that shock one how ‘bad’ it’s getting, like the fact that America sells and uses 90% of anti-pain killers in the world. Jeez! Food should be medicine, along with yoga, meditation, gardening, and hugging. Some get down to deep weaving and connection, others struggle with finding the higher more virtuous way.

“There is a love of wild nature in everybody, an ancient mother-love showing itself whether recognized or no, and however covered by cares and duties”
― John Muir

September 12 Mercury square Mars, and Sun conjunct Mercury. A desire to shake and quicken, quake and reconfigure. Sharp quick knowledge or news forces growth or change. Weird storms or nature perturbations. Mercury and then Sun square Mars with Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Friday Sept 16th which also aspects Mercury/Mars; arguments, unnecessary violence, or is it new regard for truth, facts, and rational intelligence over unconscious emotions? Lots of difficult and tough communications, some make breakthroughs in understanding while others hit the wall or each other, yuk! Make love not war.

September 13th Sun square Mars. Force of will? New light and insight adjusting curve and direction? Avoid forcing issues unless wisdom and love pervade all circumstances. Wisdom intelligence at odds or in conflict with force of will.

“The secret Order of Melchizedek can never appear in the physical world while humanity is constituted according to its present plan. It is the supreme Mystery School, and a few have reached the point where they have blended their divine and human natures so perfectly that they are symbolically two-headed. The heart and mind must be brought into perfect equilibrium before true thinking or true spirituality can be attained. The highest function of the mind is reason; the highest function of the heart is intuition, a sensing process not necessitating the normal working of the mind.”
―Manly P. Hall, Melchizedek and the Mystery of Fire

“The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us. Thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing. The trees wave and the flowers bloom in our bodies as well as our souls, and every bird song, wind song, and tremendous storm song of the rocks in the heart of the mountains is our song, our very own, and sings our love.”
― John Muir

September 15th Full Moon Night, September 16th Full Moon Day, Harvest Moon, in Pisces nostalgic and magically mysterious time. Good time to dream true, find higher minded hearts, and enjoy. With Moon/Mars/Mercury aspect previously mentioned, many quick decisions made, sudden actions causing reactions, need to not over react, avoid unruly scenes. Much talk, not much wisdom or virtue action?

“They wander in darkness seeking light, failing to realize that the light is in the heart of the darkness”
―Manly P. Hall

September 17-18, Mars trine Uranus and Venus oppose Uranus; sudden love upsets or sudden love relations, oft of short duration. Sudden strong creative urges, sudden shift of direction. Changing one’s mind, or rising to the occasion.

“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.”
― John Muir

September 22nd, Fall Equinox, Sun enters Libra the scales, Mercury goes direct (1:31 Est), and Venus enters Scorpio the next day on 23rd when Mercury trines Pluto. Persuasive events unfold our souls into winter’s coming. Great days to make future plans, let go of the past, find higher understanding, re-unite will all you love and all who love you. Really good time for making future plans, aligning self with others, committing to good things, work, education, people. Starting now and into coming year, with Jupiter in Libra and Mercury going direct to enter Libra Oct. 7th, look for many new and renewed relations of love and business, politics and war, spiritually wise and gracious to concur, conceive, execute and deliver. Although there are really crazy aspects each month, Jupiter in Libra is beginning of positive current reaching into 2020 Jupiter conjunct Saturn which very well could bring much more world peace and harmony. In October, when Jupiter conjuncts USA Saturn, we will see strong indications of whether the good old USA is ready to stand up to the challenge of world peace and happiness. Many good events are about to take place. If you don’t like your job or relations, now is the time coming to make positive amends, changes, rearrangements, and upgrade; some dig in much deeper. And yes, I still think astrologically Donald Trump could win, but that is another story.

September 26th, Pluto goes direct in Capricorn. The world seems inevitable now, and going forward the only way. Ready or not, here comes everybody and nobody. When we raise our consciousness and turn up the love, we quickly discover others raising theirs and shining love too.

“The sun shines not on us but in us.” ― John Muir

September 30th New Moon conjunct Jupiter in Libra! Yay! Good signs for future peace and harmony, joy and prosperous times. Jupiter traveling through the astrological sign of Libra portends of many a good relation, association, tryst and bliss. Finally, peace and love start to really get a strong foot hold into the coming year.

“I live by reason of my splendour”
–Tennyson

“The ultimate conspiracy theory is the love inside us is bursting to flower. Love the earth, grow the earth, listen to stars, flowers, trees and butterflies, come to light. Talk to weeds if you can, they are past and future fruits of wisdom. Blavatsky was right, the heart has not yet flowered, all the other conspiracy theories are shadows of that.”
