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.
“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!

U know yr getting older
when u discover the glasses

You know you’re getting wiser

is within your own
Many folks never make such a rich discovery…

Half, if not two-thirds of our ailings and diseases are the fruit of our imagination and fear. Destroy the latter and give another bent to the former, and nature will do the rest.
-H.P. Blavatsky, Raja Yoga or Occultism,
New Astrology Calendars are in for 2021! Get it before sold out! Best Books to read this summer are Steiner’s ‘Foundations of 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.

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!
