Robert of Mayflower’s Astrology News & Spiritual Views
for August into September 2020

 

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

       -Owen Barfield

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

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

Astrology is the science of possibility, tendency, probabilities,  and timing for good and rough weather inwardly or out. All planetary aspects have a higher and lower octave that each individual out of freedom and higher love, universal understanding, can take advantage of, or work with for the betterment of self, world, and other. No one can really predict the future, yet we can see tendencies. It’s important to see and read your own individual astrological chart, these aspects here can be right on at times, or general otherwise. Mayflower Bookshop sells astrological programs for your computer if you really want to get into it. Otherwise, come get a personalized reading for yourself. The planets represent the pushes and pulls of life, the etheric and astral reality that precipitates events in one’s life. We have freedom and intelligence to come to self-realization, happiness, fulfillment, and enlightenment. May it be!

You know you’re getting wiser

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

-H.P. Blavatsky, Raja Yoga or Occultism,

 

Friends,

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

 

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

 

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

 

Those born with sun and planets in Cancer/Capricorn/Libra/Aries are especially feeling intense call to be change up, be free, tell truths bigger than all of us, love like its the last time.

Early Leo and late Gemini have some kind of miss or kiss the beauty as it flies by.

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Without vision people perish, with heart they reappear. – ~Capt. Bob and the contagious truths

July 19th, Robert talks at Birmingham Community House
7 pm to 9 pm, $30
Food, Love, and Creative Mind
Learn secrets of vegetarian cooking, macrobiotics and Self-Healing, changing moods with food, and more. Robert Thibodeau, co-founder of Om Vegetarian Café will share his spirited ‘conscious cooking’ techniques for grains, greens, soups, veggies, along with many an insight into awakening both health and higher consciousness, love and happiness.

Major Astrological Moments in July,
Three in August 2018.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

August 1st to August 11th, Mars square Uranus, Solar Eclipse (11th). Avoid fights unless you have to defend, and maybe not even then. Defend the weak, be brave and true, virtue deed self and other, be free, strong in roots and honoring all life, rights for all, God and Goddess, Great Father and Mother, Highest Truth and Love, bless us all. Here the breaking point is reached and many go beyond their means to find freedom, intelligence and love. Some just break their stride and search research for new truths capable of holding their emerging Higher Self and Future Destiny in the World Big Time.

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

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

Full Moon August 26 with Venus square Pluto, on 27th August Mars goes direct. Love no matter what but attend to those less fortunate, the most for the many. Don’t take things personal other than your highest dream to work into manifestation. To proceed, to grow further, sometimes you have to pull weeds, cut something out, get rid of bad habits, let go of what don’t work, find your own way with others who want to grow and know more beyond this and back again. Deep love now works, fake love causes negative emotions and insecurities to emerge. Good time to share your naked mind and fully flowering summer heart. It may be now too late to pull weeds in the garden, but never too late to pull weeds in the soul stripping oneself pure in the light of universal truth and love, a brotherliness and sisterly mind/heart for all life. Be well, be star, be mindful dharma heart. Blessings.
