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.

Many folks never make such a rich discovery…

at yr higher self service
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.
~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!

With Neptune aspects in sky for all of us June 9th to 16th, its dreamy escapism, artistic atunement, soul matings, mystic love; or its getting lost with things not quite working like you wanted. Trust in oneself with high ideals and practical day to day workings best. Nature outdoor experience, exercise, yoga, challenging spiritual reading/study, health food choices, meditation good. Avoid too much of a good thing. Terribly crazy aspects start seriously June 14th mars opposition to Saturn into June 19th mars opposition to pluto and Neptune going retrograde June 21st. These Mars/Saturn/Pluto aspects often bring about a need to fight for one’s existence. Such aspects can be heavy duty controls/demands on economic markets, military and political machinations, relations. Extremes in weather, some places stormy cold, others extreme hot. A sense of losing the middle or balance. Need to practical down to earth working patience, wisdom, and forbearance.Certainly many a situation will be at stretching point about to break, so much patience, endurance, persistence, perseverance, and perspiration may be at hand. Keep loving, keep holding to the highest ideals, keep being, living truth.
The June 26-27th debates are important to tune into. Friend Marianne Williamson will be there! Lets hope the good aspects are back by then! Should be.
‘There is one spiritual heart tempo, a mantra prayer singing in the temple of the Universe,
it is love truth to be found. – robert of mayflower
Real Spiritual Knowledge is oft a shock to the beginner, a ‘re~orchestration’ and reinterpretation of one’s whole life. One good new idea rewrites everything. Gives new inspiration, insight, adventure and growth to the soul. To avoid ‘occult indigestion’ from learning to fast and reading books deep from mayflower bookshop; take nature walks, visit woods and forests and seas, eat grains and greens and miso soup, keep balanced with universal compassion and love of it all, selflessly service the Higher Self in all. Keep learning, soul weaving, gardening. . ~Trebore Tau Bodhi
The Seat of the Soul is in the listening heart, the seat of the Spirit is in the heart of others…

Astro News June on 2019
Leading us into June ~ May 29th Mercury square Neptune. Reality and fantasy fight it out.Hermes and the Muse of Spiritual Understanding seek the inbreath to the heart. The mind yearns to unite with a greater wholeness. The lack the honesty or courage to dare know do in some retards and thwarts progress. Reach out in June to be heard from your heart mind soul. Important to understand one’s deeper feelings and to ascertain whether such feelings are appropriate for the needs and requirements of the future, for all those round, for your deepest self true. Avoid talking too much or throwing one’s energy in too many directions. Some suffer a slip of the tongue, lie or misleading drift. Be the truth you are, don’t over cater to others wants/desires unless it quickens your higher self and virtue practice, being human artistic process and prowess. News is nuts and not always to be trusted into mid June. Yet truths may leak out not often seen and this can be good for creative imaginative sparks of genius, beauty,sparks of forward motion, music and arts. Tendency to be blind to something, or to suddenly see the bigger picture with need to adjust or re-attune oneself. Avoid gambling or risk taking other than on arts, love, truth, magic of one’s own making. Keep practical.
One new insight re-orchestrates world destiny, view,opens doors to the new futures,re-interpreting the past. Finding such jewels of insight renew the soul. I read Steiner, Blavatsky, Tibetan Buddhism, Osho, and Manly Hall for such sparkling renewal flirting with heaven NOW. ~robert of mayflower
May 31st to June 2nd, Venus trine Saturn and Moon conjunct Venus, Venus trine Pluto. Good time to love what works long run, eternity, and to be loved by flowers and breeze, by little things of life. Take a breath, let go of a breath, try to appreciate, be thank full, feel the love and lucky divine overture of infinitely divine possibility.
June 3rd New Moon triggers us into summer time fun ~ intensified and critical days for good or ill fortune, wilder or crazier, highly charged or whacked are the June3,8, 9, 10, 14, especially the 15 to 18th Wildest Beautiful or dumb crazy Full Moon time, 18, 19, 21, 24, 27 too.
June 4-5th Mercury enters Cancer stirring a little more mental aggressiveness and feisty provoking as Moon conjoins Mars. Think first before speaking, acting. Be kind, patient for big view. Look for how we can all make it to heaven,a more enlightened kinder state of consciousness. Much debate over what is right, moral, good or bad (so called), with undercurrents of forcefulness and lack of freedom, seek bigger truths to hold us.
June 6-7 (influencing on through June 20th) Mars transit conjunct USA Sun and square Saturn giving increased tension to all geopolitical hotspots, shaky stock markets (into mid June), and danger of being too assertive, aggressive, mouthy, forceful. Good time for yoga, meditation, retreat, gardening, bodywork, outdoors exercise, time to make healthy rhythm and harmony balance of work and play.
June 8th Venus enters Gemini lasting into first week of July making for fickle ever changing inclinations for pleasure, love, fun, joy, relating. Gemini tries to see both sides and more often than not gets torn down the middle and beat up from trying to make everyone happy, or taking one side versusother. Seek the middle way or stillness beholding tension of opposites for higher possibilities.
History doesn’t repeat, it just gets worse, or perhaps better for a moment; but the same issues~ freedom, love, truth, and will we survive the idiots, persists.
~robert of mayflower
June 9th nasty Sun square Neptune making for lost in space, feelings, dumb chit, draining relatives and friends? Or is it spiritually meaningful but you’ve been here too many times and know the end of the movie? Time to try new mystic experience and voyage, perhaps a leap to new spaces and places. Fools are about to waylay you? Now time in coming week to reimagine your future,wake up now, and rewrite past as a fragmented self seeking wholeness. Read Rudolf Steiner’s Path of Self Knowledge Book and talk about with friends. Get a Mind, the heart will love you.
Spiritual adventurers are about to voyage to new land, opportunity, and insight capable of changing this world for the good. Tendency to over do it and exaggerate one’s craziness or fears or neurosis, or dream fantasy. June into July is a time to fix, retool, rewrite, and renew hopes for better shinier futures, song, heart and soul.
My Soul. I summon to the winding ancient stair;
Set all your mind upon the steep ascent,
Upon the broken, crumbling battlement,
Upon the breathless starlit air,
Upon the star that marks the hidden pole;
Fix every wandering thought
~Yeats, Self and Soul.
***June 14th morning Mars opposes Saturn (after Mars trine Neptune over night (2:12 AM, EST). (affects now into june 20th) Yep, this is a doozy! Astro Astral preview of what’s to come in coming weeks and particularly in January 2019 when Saturn conjunct Pluto!? Early warning shots. More threats of one-sided negotiations based on ‘one-up-manship’, my way or the yr lost highway? Tensions flare and threats of conflict economics or war? Fake War? Fake news? Fake remade old mud pies? Aggressive hasty moves could turn ill will into shadows of dark invaders, Darth Vaders. Time to make a Hero of your self and grow spiritual wings? All depends on one’s purity of mind and courage for higher hearty truths and acts of love. Difficult time for stock markets and geo-political peace making. Danger of sudden endings, weird strange turns of events, illness and sense of finality for some, loss of state or power, lack of recognition. Need for patience and long term view, honest good work and statemanship, staying the course of good true beautiful, honest and upright, compassionate and loving. Good time to attempt to comprehend inner reality that love and truth hold the world together. See Steiner’s ‘Three Fold Commonwealth’ ideas of freedom of thinking, equality in heart/feelings, and brother sister family wisdom of economics, sharing.
*** OUCH! With Mars coming to oppose Pluto on June 20th this is a most dangerous time (week before and after). Take care not to provoke others to rash reactions based on fear, need, insecurity, or forcefulness. Compassion, Compassion, Compassion! Some experience dealing with overwhelming facts/powers/force, while others sense overwhelming feelings and inner double dealing, emotions and notions for happiness and survival disappearing. Good time to deepen one’s mind stream. Have you read Marion Woodman, old friend of mine who really understands healing the inner person. See her Pregnant Virgin, or Addicted to Perfection, or Leaving the Father’s House. Also see Robert Johnson books HE and SHE!!!.
Cardinal Signs Capricorn, Libra, Cancer, Aries are affected the most (especially born 9th to 18th). Some feel crucified and in need of resurrection and new Easter/Passover, transcendence. Time to wisely decide what kind of future you really need and want. What next life, this life, one truly needs for fulfillment or accomplishment. Real need for wisdom and loving insight here, or is it time to shut up, wait it out. Avoid major confrontation unless your higher self really really knows what its doing. Long term effects from wrong behaviour at this time may taint the future. So beware. Mars can be mean, aggressive, rough in speech or in harsh mean or violent acts. With such aspect in sky, its troublesome difficult time in weather, politics, economics, job, personal relationships and more and much wisdom compassion patience needed. Need for a politics of wisdom compassion, political and virtuous correctness, and right thinking avoiding emotions taking one over. Take care not to speak harmful words, people are really reactive these dazed days. Mars/Saturn/Pluto reveals deeps places needing healing and emotional support. Good and ‘Bad’ things have trouble ending or reforming anew. Good time for magicians of healing, gardening, yoga, meditation disciplines, patience and perseverance in higher truths and love.
June 16-17 Midsummer’s dream or Full Moon Fool? Making it or breaking it? Falling apart or falling into the holy heart again?
This is major Reality Check for most. A reality investment or bet on your future self, overcoming your past self? One’s (or other’s) lower self, perhaps beast animal appetite self, dual with the higher angelic true self?Do you need a new dream? A new vehicle or ride to higher reality? destiny? a spiritual soul re~adjustment? Danger Rangers all round, negativity abounds, time to lay low and pray unless Prometheus found to bring light to day and brighten dark places in your life! Bad guys aren’t evil, they are just dumb, ignorant, addicted, confused, hurt wanting to hurt, stupid. Still, wisdom and higher knowledge need apply the healing touch. Love Truth needs to rush to the rescue. Be still and know. OM AH HUM, may human beings hear here their deepest voice, highest star, simplest prescence.
Mars opposes Saturn/Pluto midpoint. Hard to drive through walls, much wisdom compassion needed to gently give rise to the goddess wisdom love and truth. Such aspect makes for cops and robbers mentality, a good guys bad guys at odds, lots of confrontational weirdness as well as need for long termGood time, but bit late, to rid self of wrong friends, non virtuous or not your destiny orientation people. Good to be alone if not in the company of angels. Need for more compassionate view. Need for peace and love at Buddha Christ Mani Manas level. When ArcAngels arrive, heaven descends and all hell breaks loose as las few weeks may have revealed. We seem to live in a Bosch Painting or one of Rudolf Steiner’s Apocalypse Revelations talks. (See Mayflower Bookshop and Rudolf Steiner Archives).
Also! Mercury trine Neptune, Mercury oppose Saturn, Jupiter square Neptune, Moon conjunct Jupiter with Full Moon in late Sagittarius on 17th June. Idealists and dreamers manifest destiny and make life long friends or suddenly start to wake up to need for real change and real friends that last in our spirit souls, at the least! Such aspects this whole month into July/Augustmake for ‘dreams come true’ or ‘dreams get crushed’ and shocked into more true down to earth reality and day to day needs. Here may be lots of noise and over excitement. panic driven times perhaps. Possible major pollution and disinformation, reformation, death and rebirth scenarios like crazy, weird weather exotically beautiful in parts and crazy go crazy wildly destructive in other parts. Weather by the way going to extremes like most folks mind and feelings. Full Moon June 17th time (give or take a week) indicating possibility of major loss, deaths of infamous and famous, final conclusions, a sense of ‘no going back’. Sense for some of deep crisis this month, ultimate face off, humble pie stuff. Need for long term humility, wisdom, insight patience, and on demand for higher spiritual virtue holy heart mind. Such aspects may also indicate further dramatic weather and war zone activities, vicissitudes in stock markets round world, giving many a sense of need for change as well as apocalyptic warnings that times are a’changing. After all, scientists around the world recently predicted the world to end for human life by 2050. Long ago Newton predicted this !!! We need a new way of thinking, feeling, willing, living, loving, finding truth, higher truth, in each other!. Also new scientific facts on plastic in the rain, food chain, water soil garden…..no one knows long term health effects.
Venus in Gemini indicates much love outpouring for situation, event, or person; as well as slow but sure rise of a woman to power wise smarts and position. With Moon conjunct Jupiter also in the geo-cosmic planetary geometry, whoever is to be a major woman player for presidency begins to show her face and rise. Maybe a number of em!
Strangely enough at end of June into July Mrs Melania Trump has Uranus transit conjunct her natal Sun! Is this divorce or renewal of vows? Indication of trouble in the crib or the crib just turned into a new ride? A reflection of temporary drop in economy or revamping and ready for higher roller coaster ride? Is this a sudden new positive event horizon for her? New book or enterprise to throw her into limelight? Is she the distractor factor or thrown off the horse. Is she coming into her own unique power or loss of such? With Uranus to also trine her Moon, big good things are up as well as a bit shocking events. Is it increased drama and huge change, transformation, of day to day, place and circumstance? Astrology aspects have higher and lower octave that each of us as individuals out of freedom must attune ourselves to ~ destiny or fate. Right or wrong turn, karma or destiny; we each sing the key to which song.
With the trine aspects , one would think she will have sweet outcome no batter what, and may have some pleasant surprises and new presentations for public, new look, new gifts, new view.
Many aspects in sky indicate the intensity of the transformative times. All aspects have a higher and lower octave of possible expression depending on the quality of motive and intention as well as the ability and intelligence of individuals involved. This month into next much karma and dharma being activated for serious change and rearrangement of musical chairs. These days history is in the making. May it be good true beautiful for all of us.
June 18th Saturn trine Neptune, mercury conjunct Mars, and Moon occulting or eclipsing Saturn. Security and ideals try to meet heart and mind in soul of it all. Now is powerfully real time. Folks more easily honest and sharing what they feel, need, and dream. In their own view, what happening, abounds in art, words, thoughts, actions. A giving of serious bottom lines with high ideals at stake. For many these days a further proof we need an angel arrives for real (loving kindness, virtue and noble truth) coming back into every day life in every way possible in every place in the world.
With transit of Uranus conjunctVenus in chart of NY Stock Exchange on June18-19th ~ stocks and markets could be in for more wild rides and dangerous time.Avoid gambling or drawing lines in the sand, ultimatums or dictates. Be creative and free, give others freedom you yourself desire. Be creative again.
June 19th Mercury oppose Pluto, Moon occult Pluto, Mars oppose Pluto. Hopefully here is where justice prevails, egotism is put in check, lies exposed, compassion wins over ignorance and delusion or lack of love and truth. Hopefully we find truth love compassion to hold and carry us all here to better life more noble of character. Share! Jealousy is loving someone for who you want them to be, not who they are. Compassion is wanting someone to not suffer, love to be happy, wishing enlightenment seems best. Such aspects have a sense of deadline, completions, finality, end of the line, endings and new beginnings. Scapegoating and blaming others for one’s own poor choices or wrong doings won’t work here. Poor choices tends to backfire or bind one to sorrow. Study and learn, who am I? What is the Self. See HPB’s Key to Theosophy or Steiner’s Road to Self Knowledge, Manly Hall’s Secret Teachings of All Ages, Hermes’ Divine Pymander, or Osho’s Book of Secrets. A real need here for understanding of other, working with others, not demonizing or justifying. Those willing to learn earn degrees to real futures.
June 21 Summer Solstice, sun goes into Cancer and Neptune goes retrograde.Ok, right when reality and more true facts appear now many attempt to resuscitate the corpse of broken dreams and past hopes. The past and/or future tend to distract many from present needs and opportunities. Be present, be still, heart listening to space within without. Be the truth , live the life, love the eternal whispering in all of us.
June 23rd venus opp Jupiter gives impulse to be around people who support even a pretense to happiness. Over indulgence can be an issue here. June 24th Venus square Neptune wants an idealistic fantasy of past and/orfuture to escape the present. Avoid sweets weakening clear perceptions. Art, music, poetics strong as love here.
June 26-27 Mercury enters Leo and Sun sextile Uranus, moon conjunct uranus. Urge to make something new happen that is smarter, quicker, more honestly upbeat and higher octave. demiUrge Genius at work these days to enliven, awaken, and yes forsaken what don’t work.
July 2nd Solar Eclipse at 10 Cancer on USA Sun and Mick Jagger’s ex Jerry Hall’s Sun Sign. Oops! Time for Mick Jagger to have another hit song? or leave the scene suddenly?!Next two weeks dangerous time to overplay oneself or to provoke idiots, madmen, and premie pirates of genius but false futures. Temptation this week and next to make old dead self walk the plank into larger oceans of possibility and hope. Need for nourishment of the soul to enliven spirit these weeks.
July 16th Lunar Eclipse also affecting USA Sun. Julycould prove a very intense (good or tough) time for politics, stock market jitters, home relations, quick rise or fall,from or to,fame, fortune, power, well being, right relations, and name of one’s angel. Some feel ‘eclipsed’ or cut out of something, others feel they are finally connecting, hooking up, with destiny, futurity, healthier happier wiser heartier matters.
July 11th Mars square Uranus. Anger and aggressive moves cause strong reactions and quick storms, or does higher bravado and courageous truth raise the inner standard of living a virtuous life? Avoid unnecessary travel, risk, investments, or gamble. Patience needed to avoid argument or storm. If procrastinating, now may be the time to act. Be gentle wise loving kind. No force. Sudden news jolts perspectives. Avoid negative emotions these last days and next. Genius and humor have timing, keep your inner spirit soul song in heart for wings to grow into good true futures.
July 16th Lunar Eclipse moon occults saturn and pluto making for more repressive or severe emotions and weather; extremely hot or cold in various parts.
August 11th Jupiter goes direct making things, people eventslook forward motion like. Many future plans enacted.
August 15 Full Moon 22 Aquarius. Freedom and security controls both vie for attention. Freedom and necessity work to harmonize coming days.
Aug 26 to 29th Venus trine Uranus, Mars trine Uranus, Sun trine Uranus and New Moon on 30th. Love and truth attempt a marriage here, good time to make promises worth keeping. Working for peace and love, creativity and heavenly estate. Positive spirited time for most.
If one presents a public lecture about spiritual science or anthroposophy, then one is forced to take into account the inability to take in what is offered, by the contemporary world, one must be very much aware of this limited ability. One has to be clearly conscious of the fact that in our time, although there is an influx of insights streaming in from the spiritual world, insights which are necessary for humankind today, it is very difficult nowadays to be uninhibited in taking these truths in. Most people who are not well prepared to receive it will experience the deeper spiritual-scientific truths as a shock, as something which appears as fantastic or as a dream.

“No one is free who has not obtained the empire of himself.” – Demophilus the Pythagorean
UK, Britain England under the gun, or knife, with rough extreme weather, politics, economy, and miserable complaint as Pluto for the second time in retrograde now opposes UK natal MOON!Difficult Mars aspects add to the picture making for strong words and actions needing wisdom’s compassion and long term view as things there continue to heat up crazily.
These days with Eclipses we got heat and mean posturing, fires out west, in the east flooding, along with mars/uranus mercury mars retrograde making crazy explosive situations, sudden exposing or shocking revelations and realizations, ie. expose’s in church and state, famous and infamous, 3-D gun problems, more expensive toilet paper, less expensive Bitcoin, political collusion or collision, russia probe or russian grown politics? Sudden rise or fall for many in both ego, money, power, fame. Quickening times, ever changing events, who’s about to slip slips, falls, others suddenly rise to new position and height. Many experiencing a turning point in affairs. Many suffer from things gone to extremes or out of balance. Dangerous time to use force or force oneself and projections on others.
Seems lots of things and events at a breaking point, a break down, or is it a ‘break through’, a sudden rising to new highs and depths of awareness, reality, truth and love.
Intense times eve of August 1st with Mars square Uranus in sky, taking us right into August 11th Solar Eclipse; and on to August 19th Mercury retrograde going direct This timing should tell many a story as to what is really happening and what isn’t. Many fall apart, others suddenly come together! Some are stuck with highly idealistic fantasy Neptune dreaming the impossible dream For still others its waking up from illusion/delusion. Are you driving or being driven? You in control or someone else piloting or pirating the ship. False Inflation is followed by deflation for some. All depends if you have good aspects to these transits. See your natal chart. Cancer and Pisces planets lucky and dreamy, Taurus and Virgo locking into long term security.
Signs and Planets in fixed signs of Scorpio, Taurus, Aquarius, Leo feel this the most stress and energy for strong change/transformation/progress. We all have these signs somewhere in our chart. (see yr personal chart with all the planets and houses!) That is why i give higher and lower octave possibilities and event. Depends on your own natal chart how these transits either create ‘good or challenging influences and aspect.
Some Aspects in sky tough, if hitting your personal points, have patience and avoid negative spats. Remember, we are after lasting happiness, truth and love for all. Onwards then.
Some deepen with Pluto realization it may take some time to fix, heal, transform. Without compassion and a sense that everyone of us has a God Spark, a potential ultimate flowering of truth and love, grace, compassion, wit; there is no end to the torture of materialistic only view. We live in a spiritual and material world orchestrating an educational evolutionary progress of the heart mind Soul, an eternal quest. Selfishness and greed, acting out of separateness, and causing suffering with little or no learning or healing is hindering our happiness and enlightenment.
Spirit and Matters of earth need meet and agree in mindful harmony. All the leaders of earth should meet regularly and publicly with Peace, Love, Harmony in mind for all! All the earth is a living being, a Gaia, a wholeness, seeking balance, harmony, community and song!
Many, astrologically speaking, are stuck with moon reflections, no radiant virtue sunshine. Some can’t turn the noise and craziness of electronics and sense bound thinking off so to rest in the heart. Some on all the time and never learn to be still, ponder, contemplate, meditate, yoga. Some have the sun burning all the time, no stillness nor quiet down time to reflect.
Aug. 1st is the queen of diamonds in the card system, hard facts from mother earth and divine wisdom soul sophia presenting themselves to those with listening hearts.
Mars retrograde square Uranus is tough talk, blaming others, shaming, heavy gaming, explosive situations, sudden escalations and reversals in all affairs. Mars/Uranus creates lots of stress and tension.
Such aspect Mars/Uranus here last May and again in September, but this may prove the roughest into mercury direct on Aug 19th. Need to retrace steps and see honestly how we got here so not to repeat mistakes, eh?
Need for ArchAngelic courage for truth, honesty, compassion and protection of little ones (everyone who knows less and suffers more than you). Need true education how to love and respect all God’s creation and be co-creative not manipulative nor over controlling, but co-creative and in harmony with all. When we work on ourselves, we can change the world.
‘God’ is what Plato calls the ‘Oneness’. All things good, true, beautiful come from or go to this sense of unity, wholeness, Oneness. Oneness is permeating all the universe with creative diversity and spirit. Universal Mind to Hermes and Plato is the only begotten Son or light of the Oneness; the thinking in all things. The light of the world is connectivity, relationship, spirit to grow, love, learn, share.
We don’t always know and realize how everything we do, no matter how secret, affects everything and everyone else, and they us.When we are willing to learn, anything can happen, Plato said. Wisely Loving everyone isn’t an ideal, its karma, its dharma, its reality, we are not always conscious of it, that is the problem. This truth, Love, is what creates our future, our destiny or fate.
Mars/Uranus intensifies and quickens what’s taking too long, but the danger is impatience and weird releases of force, tension, precipitating hasty actions, mistakes, hurtful speech, anger and negative actions/reactions causing disturbance, ill winds, test of nerves and danger. The positive side is Mars as hero, in justice, truth, compassion and love. Honest courage to act with infinite patience being attuned to the eternal in each other is the higher octave of mars and venus working together. Jesus said ‘Love your enemies’, you don’t have to “like” them, love em. Buddha taught desire and fear are the cause of all suffering, and to have compassion and selfless wisdom is to free self and other. When we learn from our mistakes , we don’t repeat them. Lets be spiritual peace makers and wisdom keepers shining with Mars/Uranus higher truth light, joy wit.
There is never a time ‘God and Love’ is not with us. This is wisdom, infinite possibilities for the good true beautiful you. This is the real chance for winning, not the lotto loota. This NOW is always the time to learn, love, truth, be the sun/moon/earth, heart/mind/love for a real chance for renewal and positive change. Summer Blessings,

“What’s past is prologue.”~the Tempest, Shakespeare
The economic view should be brotherhood of shared planetary existence, community family and universal heart, home. The religious view should be also the cultural artistic, deep inner flowering and ecological view. The political commonwealth should inculcate ethics (what is right to do) and the rights of all mankind, spiritual equality,practical everyday justice, education, for all.

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.
“The lyre of true philosophy is no less tuneful in the desert than in the city; and he who knows how to call forth its latent harmony in solitude, will not want the testimony of the multitude to convince him that its melody is ecstatic and divine.” (Thomas Taylor, from his History of the Restoration of Platonic Theology)
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.
“By mutual confidence and mutual aid,
Great deeds are done, and great discoveries made;
The wise new prudence from the wise acquire,
And one brave hero fans another’s fire.”

There are divine dances: in the first place, that of the Gods; in the second place, that of divine souls: in the third place, the revolution of the celestial divinities, viz. of the seven planets, and the inerratic sphere, is called a dance: in the fourth place, those who are initiated in the mysteries perform a certain dance: and, in the last place, the whole life of a philosopher is a dance. Terpsichore, therefore, is the inspective guardian of all dancing. Who then are those that honour the goddess in the dance? Not those who dance well, but those who live well through the whole of the present existence, elegantly arranging their life, and dancing in symphony with the universe. Hermeas on the Phaedrus.
To what shall I compare
The spectacles of a philosopher?
To a clear dream by Jupiter,
Circularly borne along in all directions;
In which, indeed, the body does not move,
But the soul travels round the whole earth,
From earth ascends to heaven,
Passes over every sea,
Flies through every region of the air,
Runs in conjunction with the sun,
Revolves with the moon,
Is carried round with the choir of the other stars,
And nearly governs and arranges the universe,
In conjunction with Jupiter!
O blessed journey, beautiful visions,
And true dreams!
Maximus of Tyre, Dissertation VI
Hope your days summery sweet
and transcendental as the rose rose
above the thorns,
