   ASTRO DECEMBER Current events and insights~

Comet from outside our system, rare to enter our space, our solar system, will make its closest ride by our Sun, Perihelion, Dec. 8th! In ancient myth reality, such comets come to give us significant messages from the greater Cosmos. The universal mind steps in to make certain things we consider good and/or bad to occur, karmic lessons and further insights, teachings, uplifting experiences or burn out. Comets can be ‘comet cleansers’ purifying and ridding us of forms as they are, highly energizing or awakening higher truths in us individually or collectively. People can rise or fall during eclipses and comet activity. Marc Twain was born on a Comet and predicted accurately his leaving the planet on the comet’s return. This comet coming is from outside our stellar system and could have come from times past in Atlantis! No one knows yet. We feel its closeness now into full moon Dec 12th. Will major transitions (deaths/births) take place. Some arriving, others leaving, risings and fallings. England’s Queen? ‘Prince’ Andrew? President Carter? So many in news on the edge of sharp turns and transitions in life. Almost apocalyptic times we in, eh?

     Are our designer futures in trouble?

   Yet, the apocalypse ‘now’ has a way of perpetually being postponed, as many little ‘death and rebirth scenarios’ run through our friends, neighbors, news and our own lives. Various storms storm our place in life and rumble through our hearts and minds in hope of new growth and weeding out the old. The next rumble tumble of the dice of karma nemesis and fate is dated to be triggered come December 7-8th on with moon squaring Saturn/Pluto midpoint and Sun square Neptune. Important then to stay grounded, practical, and sane. Possible future stock market quirks, shocks and rattles in days to come, as well as challenges to our ‘taking stock in our self’, outer realities being bot stirred and shaken.

    is this a time for ‘The Turn of the Screw’? or the ‘Scrooge’? Feeling screwed? Or is it ‘the three little pigs’ learning to fight off the wolf?.Virgin of the World, ‘Snow White’, the image of the purified soul/astral body regaining wisdom truth!?!  Once again the metaphor of the birth of ‘the baby’ jesus, the higher self, Christos or Buddha nature renewed in the womb of the heart. Its is the hermetic old Greek wisdom of the raised consciousness’ or Higher Self reborn at turn of the year. A birthday of 26 Solar Heroes and suns of the virgin. Krishna, Odin, Jesus, Apollo, Hermes, Saturnalia, Mithras, to name a few. Yet this end time of year also feels like a ‘funeral’ dazed with shadowy realities and betrayal of a vision of wholeness, unity, peace. At funerals and such times its impolite to be critical, yet we must learn to see higher truths and love to wend and weave our way in Spirit and Soul, Body. Whew!

*December (into January) is tough month for Bernie Sanders with (Jan) transit of Pluto square his natal Mars, and (Dec) transit of Saturn square his Moon, he may for health and more, drop out, or fall back, from the ‘run’ for President.

*Marianne Williamson, still in the running but not in DNC debates at the moment, has tough aspect mid december of Saturn oppose Venus, indicating possible need to take a breath and step back, switch horses or a few confidants, re-think, not take things personally, taking good care of her more sensitive side. She is soul determined its hard to predict exactly what may happen in her personal life to stir possible laying back from front lines. She may yet continue. For Marianne, December 28th, she will find her place and inner solid space when Saturn transit trines her progressed Sun/Jupiter, strengthening her determined courage to speak the truth, creatively sharing a greater view of what we can do to enliven and heal the collective voice and action the good, true, beautiful in the USA.

   Dec. 8th Venus conjoins Saturn foreboding difficult times and weather right into Dec. 13th-14th when Venus is conjunct Pluto. Here the screw’s set loose and Love deepens or weakens! Good time to focus on what’s right to do, avoiding negativities from others. Dangerous time for overdose, suicide, accidents, negative behaviour, sickness. Good for disciplined art of being human, yoga, meditation, healthier life style. Need for ethics and morality in high and low places. Time for compassion with teeth, wisdom smarts, capacity to really help, take action to better. Is it a time for gothic tortuous fiction and ghost hauntings of history repeated in the ‘fall’? Perhaps a renewed inquiry into secrets behind the ‘invisible hand’ manipulating the puppets and temporary fall of the curtain or facade of the ‘little man’ of external rank and fortune without inner vision and wisdom?

   Saturn is cold and contractive, hard mean lean; and Pluto is associated with death, degeneration or regeneration, extremism and taking things too personally. SuperSensitive or not sensitive at all. Thinks and things go to extremes. At higher octave level its a big sense of common collective destiny. A larger sense of spiritual reality, fate, reality check, and/or world conception, wisdom, compassion. Big view often needed here as well as strong sense of common sense, long term practicality. Its all possible foreplay and preview of January’s Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. Its the opening act.

              [Aspects influence days before and after, when directly hitting on the planets in your own natal chart, major events can take place. It is out of our own genius, wisdom, smarts, to aim for the higher octave of planetary influences and impelling energetic.]

More December ASTRO ASPECTS ~ (see below for more days before and in-between these.)

  Dec. 11th Venus/Saturn. Venus is love and with Saturn its denial or overly strong focus, perhaps deep connection or feeling stuck imprisoned. It is deep connection and wisdom love arising through time.

            Why don’t Billionaires love all the land?

             And why can’t money buy long lasting happiness? Does happiness buy money? How does true love transcend anger, hatred, jealousy, negative emotions, and selfish separatist, this shore only view.

With Venus conjunct Pluto (dec.13) its a sticky wicky witchy feeling stuck deep and driven hard down to the bone in hard facts and tougher realities. The limits of growth and need for contraction configures into everyday reality. December may be a hard riddle to solve. It is for some, a house of false mirrors, unreal light and direction. For others hard realities and wake up calls. Need for higher truths and love to emerge from self, other or not. Time to pick one’s self up and join others in good works focusing what’s good for one and all. Its a deep need for renewal, humility and/or selfless learning, compassion, avoiding obsession, fixation, inflated sense of self importance or ‘woundology psychology’; victimization stigma. This is done by invoking one’s Christ Self, Divine Self, the God within, the Higher octave of one’s heart and mind. Times alchemically transformative for some. Possible life transformative experience/love, higher predilection, spiritual calling recognition, a raising from dead thinking/feeling. From higher karmic/dharma sense of ‘thinks and things’, our more universal ‘higher self’ precipitates events, brings everything upon us for learning lessons and enlightenment process. To see and experience this takes inner work on SELF. Eventual freedom and higher love/compassion/creativity/joy will emerge.

   Astrology always has a higher and lower octave at work in each and every aspect and time.

    At higher end its divine intervention and angelic inspiration, good luck and destiny. At the lower end its fate and necessity, feeling ripped off and/or vampirized, drained, things ‘eat at you’. From the lower end, things look more tragic, desperate, and ill willed for the soul. Thus Shakespeare wrote comedies and tragedies, a glimpse of higher and lower seemingly un-repressible realities, an inner battle for the soul, a struggle of light and dark, conscious and unconsciousness.

    All initiation myths have this sense of leaving the known, going into the wilds of the unknown, discovery and loss, rediscovery and finding of gold, inner direction and virtue, a sense of ending and new beginning, death and rebirth, communion with higher values, love, joy, truth, and futurity. See Steiner’s From Death to Rebirth, and his Fall of the Spirits of Darkness.

    Human beings individually and collectively will eventually transcend good and evil, and like the chess pieces that move above the dualistic black and white squares, higher consciousness will allow us to act in a more transcendental way with each other. Each action becomes aware of all the other pieces and actors in the world game process reality on the road to Self Realization and true Knowledge.

   Also during this time period of Dec. 11th to 19th, transiting Saturn will oppose the Moon in the United Kingdom (England) Chart. This will make for strong debate, argument, contesting, consolidation, attempt to go right wing conservative, nationalistic. Also makes for severe weather or circumstances. Possible very cold weather and cold shoulders. Extremes in weather pendulum like, some places in world on fire, others freeze. Food prices up, quality down. Some land no good no more. May take till dec. 2020 when jupiter/saturn trines UK Uranus/Ascendent for peace and love, social justice and mutual collective consensus to re-emerge, in heart solidifying then England’s better future, economy and honest estate. If the few didn’t own so much, others could have a shot at home and land. One wonders with december’s aspects about health and well being of the upper crust as well. Rich outside often is poor or sick inside it seems. May be big turning point and interesting conclusion of a cycle for the UK. For USA its December 2020 when reality of peace and harmony, intelligence and loving kindness return us from this weird psychic polarizing civil war like division.

    December 8th to 14th may show many an event and world or social cultural turn of events, change. Presidents present and pass under heavy stress tests, ‘do or die’ sort a speak, or hide and seek, or something. World Stock Markets stressed.

  Robots and Artificial Intelligence taking half the job market in coming years. China/Russia/middle east/USA in continuous hot cold war with divisive tactics to take advantage of each other rather than to enhance each others quality of life. A sense of separateness and divison rather than communication and working together is prevalent. Lots of paranoia and mistrust pervasive. Fear kills love. Love vanishes fear but must be wise for spiritual future, not just materialistic. Spiritual and material values begin to purify and harmonize co-creatively with each other end of 2020.

    With Saturn/Pluto opposing Cancer Sign for past years and couple years to come, problems with purity and quality of food, water, air. Family and friends need mending not fencing, honest communications not fabrications and nefarious exploitations. Pluto square to Libra and Aries has challenged our ideas of marriage, relationships to include all, individuality to not trespass on other individuals. Pluto demands a sense of belonging to greater whole while trying to protect uniqueness of each and every person and thing. Negatively it destroys things making a wasteland of land and relationships. We must learn to invoke and evoke the higher virtue in each moment and time.

   Venus is love, art, culture, friends and loved ones. With saturn and pluto venus must be private and secret, to the point and protective of one’s sacred Stillness, holy space. cleanliness and virtue here go far to protect and stay open for the best.

    Dec. 8th to 14th not best time to purchase gifts unless out of creative artistic imagination or out of intuitive understanding of long run future. Gifts should be way out spiritual or dirt practical to harmonize creatively with the times. I suggest checking out manly hall’s ‘Secret Teachings of AllAges’ at mayflower bookshop. Or Osho’s ZEN TAROT, good for doing intuitive readings with positive results!

    Dec. 8-14 or more is wrong time to gamble or take risk in money or love, unless creative free and/or many lives to prove. With so many castings and roles to play, always be aware of the ‘mask’ people wear, and to what future is fed, and who behind mask, trickster or fool, wise one or holy space, will, heart.

     Certainly this time challenging, possibly inwardly rewarding and warming at least. Recent,now, and till Jupiter/Uranus trines (around dec. 15th). Then new emerging of truth/love/clarity/ till then quite challenging. During now till them, lots of crazy interesting news and dark revelations, challenges ~ such as Stock Market and investments roller coasting.

       Impeachment zaniness cross fires, cannabis blues and highs, cannabliss inscapes vs poor results. Tensions round Brexit, nation state disagreements/wranglings, health and well being of self and our collective natural resources and common wealth, 5G phone health risks, weird tortuous scientific breakthroughs but toxic fallout or shadow play. Dangerous unlimited or wasteful military industrial growth seems unavoidable and unaccountable around the world. No Peace Dept. nor wisdom enough for true lasting peace making. Seems the world caught in big short term profits at cost of long term prosperity and health. Our future is at stake.

    Need a new wisdom, an aquarian spirit smart enough for lasting peace plans manifesting everywhere one looks!

     During this december time more nasty nasties with Epstein murder and aftermath, more big name scandals, Prince Andrews underwear revelations, more Weinstein dirt and funny weird connections, more pedophile priests and decadent funsters and cosmos monster inflated entertainment personalities distracting us from the reality right in front of us and in failing polluted nature around us. More ‘Idiot Wind’ as Dylan called it. More violence and power over rather than through. More violence and gun gangster gunster’s misuse and false power plays. More power and energy troubles, weather and emotional storms, sudden downpours, snow, or release of dirty secrets and repressed emotions. Wild Spirits in need of wisdom intelligence. In all areas of life there is too many sharks in the water, and a lack of responsibility for our common wealth, that which we all need to survive and thrive on this planet! And then there is the Solar Eclipse on Christmas day. Many an awakening to come. Can be holy, can be ahrimanic.

     December transit of Pluto oppose USA par fortune and transit of Jupiter oppose Venus/Jupiter makes for many shifts in buyers likes and dislikes, many sales or lack of, for some. Things go to extremes ‘good’ or ‘bad’, beautiful or ugly. Deep new discoveries, but shadow toxins, weird storms and lightening quick experiences with long lasting effects good or ill. Also strange electronic mishaps, and over play, over doing, over spending, and for some going broke. Things are going to weird extremes before true change arrives. Challenges continue in both up and down for emotions and markets. It would help so much if happiness wasn’t dependent on external thinks alone!

    Approaching mid december, intense rallies, collective voice or protest, for and against. Unusual rhythms, breaks and breakthroughs, or break downs. Quirky turn arounds, reversals or upsets. With transit of Neptune square USA Mar/Neptune and midpoint, its been hard to figure out divine inspiration from out and out lies and deceit. High ideals and possibilities for some, for others lost in space or deception, conspiracies impotent for virtuous deed,good work, self realization, mutual agreement. Look for actions to speak and manifest ideals. One’s daily life to become ideal.

     The Solar Eclipse on Christmas day with moon eclipsing Pluto and Venus 26-27th following, will prove to be both apocalyptic in hindsight and foresight; as well as giving us a sense that more than a few pages of history are getting turned at this time. A need to discover a way of loving that will never let you down. Here its more what you give, shine, share, be; than what others do.

     Need more good news?!? Well, number one; if you are reading this, you are still in the game Watson! Be still and know. Also Jupiter will conjoin Saturn in Aquarius come December 2020. Then we will get a good taste of the Aquarian ideal of universal love, truth, collectively creative mutual understanding and belonging soul wise, grounded in peaceful intelligence and wisdom of the world rather than ‘Wiiz Dumb’.

December Critical Astrological Days (influences felt before and after exact days of aspect)

Dec 2nd Jupiter enters Capricorn for a year and earth signs get a break and new renewed breath of positive change coming. Shift from many a trouble and struggle to enable greater play and good work, luck, money, romance. Look for what house and planets you have in earth signs. Fire signs worked into actuality last year their ideals and dreams, some profiting while others reviewing missed learning lessons. Cardinal and earth signs, houses and planets activated for new growth. Mutable and water signs dreamy artistic, living in past and future, missing parts of present, be here now.

Dec. 11 Venus conjunct Saturn. Love what gives you wisdom and lasting virtue mind/heart.

December 12th full Moon in Gemini followed by Dec. 13th friday, Mars trine Neptune and Venus conjunct Pluto. Some miss the turn, others divinely inspired to take new leaps, adventure.

Also dec. 13 time period ~ Venus conjunct Pluto with the Mars trine Neptune. Some escape stress and troubles, others in the thick of it. Avoid being obsessed with externals, work on self, share self with others. Avoid expecting others to do what you want. Celebrate good things, times, people, but don’t possess the moment. Kiss the joy as it flies by, don’t kill the time, kill the TV and distractive thinking. Share and dare, don’t mare and flair or crazy care. Dare to let go and flow, no attachment to results, just be your best. Trust your future Spirit Soul in the becoming.

  December 15th Jupiter trine Uranus in earth signs. Down to earth fun, practical and touchy. Yes, somebody is always winning. Are we happy for others, working on self to be clear, real, authentic, genuine but not clutching, clinging, attached, externally fixated. Accept things the way they are for now, keep working on self. Be thank full for still learning. Jupiter/Uranus is surprise shock for some, others fun surprises and originality, humor, fun, creativity, music/arts.

For some a leap of freedom and intellectual love of life, sociability, big breaks, most lucky for a moment inwardly or outwardly. Avoid risk and gamble, yet mildly good wild times. For some advancement and gain without much effort. Sense of luck and money. Some go overboard and lose their shirt.

Dec. 21 Sun in Capricorn, longest night, shortest day, serious long term and inner commitment. A time to make a wish for new year to come. Time to attune to one’s deep inner oneness, wholeness, quiet rooted self.

Dec. 22 Venus square Uranus. Sudden realizations, surprises, joys; or sudden little mishaps or obstructions, miscommunications, missing pieces. Good for creativity and spontaneous behavior.

December 26th Solar Eclipse at 4 degrees Capricorn with Sun conjunct Jupiter on 27th giving way to popularist values and pep rallies in hope things are going to get better. Good time to network, extend your grace and good will out to the world. Good for meeting others these coming weeks and making positive plans for present into future. A strong desire to ditch trouble and look for more fun times. For some strong turning point in time. Sense of being cut off, or suddenly connected. Deep sensitivity to one’s whole of life. Avoid little things bugging you, troubling you, not to see all the good in world.

“Together we can save this country.” ~Marianne Williamson

Dec 27th Sun conjunct Jupiter after moon conjunct Saturn/Pluto. Expansive time for good or ill.

Dec 28th moon occults venus. Look deeper into self and other for what matters most to heart and soul.

Dec 30 mercury trine uranus. Look for sparks of genius to light the way. Sudden connections, insights, spurts of growth, creativity, soul touch.

Jan 10 full moon lunar eclipse 20 Cancer, Sun conjunct Mercury, Uranus goes Direct from retrograde. A sense of letting go and letting God, our nobler side, to intuit direction. Letting go of distractions and activating higher OM or Holy within one’s self and world.

AstroNews for Oct-November-Dec

October 1st Venus in libra square Pluto in capricorn. First half of month has mostly challenging aspects. Some feel in over their head, others feel overwhelmed. Where there is Love, there is God; as Tolstoy and the Bible say. Where there is emptiness practice, stillness heart listening, there is room to move, grow, know more, participate, be part of it all. Acting out of separateness without true understanding of karma and re-incarnating learning circumstance; life is tough to say the least. Negative emotions and selfishness is killing the world. Ownership without enlightenment is killing the world.

Negative emotions is a mindless battleground. Jealousy is loving someone for who you want them to be rather than who they are. Avoid negative emotions and projections,  manipulations through guilt, shame, blame, anger. Guilt is what we pay ourselves to do it again. There is no real shame or blame, guilt, other than not living up to one’s highest ideal, virtue, holy dream, inspiration, intuition; one’s sense of ONENESS, universal connection, Eros. Venus/Pluto wants to deepen love but needs to act out of freedom, love, compassion, higher truth.

   Such pluto aspects makes some feel squeezed and pinched, compelled to behavior rather than inspired to make holy, peaceful, more enlightened, awake.

    Lots of mud throwing in news. Judgement without healing and upliftment of all involved is lame, short sighted, and often inhumane. Dirt’ on others we see often our next life circumstance if not properly dealt with.

    Secrets smothered and hid now revealed? Or shamefully hid better? Good time to selflessly take a look at what works for the best of all, the most for the many. Need for healing and working more together rather than rogue. Yet individuals oft lead the change for better or worse.

     Venus in last of cycle third quarter coming to join Pluto indicates a wanting to go home, back to the heart and soul, back to renewal of original primal instincts driving one onward, upward, and forward with a sense of passion, love, creative art. The art of being truly human is at stake, learning to breathe to the heart is critical for one’s sanity and health.

     Animal appetites and mechanistic behaviour, fear and anger, attachment or ‘cling ons’ are tripping many. Selfless love, compassion, learning, feeling, making all friend and hugging hearts and earth is big plus these days of daze and explosive situations. Pluto tends to get wrapped up in sticky fights needing to flow to find light. Ultimatums and dirty play, sneaky behind the scenes undermining of others (self in long run) are at hand first half of month.

      Positive approach is to purify, renew, selflessly seek truth, and act, with universal love, truth, and personal touch.

October 3rd Pluto goes direct from retrograde. Since last April when it went retrograde, plans made end of 2018 into Spring, have taken a back step, but now about to go forward for positive change and self renewal, deepening, connection. It may take a few weeks of finding right steps and right other workings. Such aspect reveals need for big outer and inner change, moves, rearranging, rethink, and radical meditation/yoga so to open opportunity, miracle, surprise and wonder, making future more viable and friendly. 

    Finding right commitment to self realization and world learning is key. This powerful inner awakening energetic runs into Oct. 14th Sun square Pluto and may then tell more of the story heading as we approach january 2020 saturn/pluto conjunct. (a 31 to 37 yr cycle indicating midlife crisis, crux ifiction or crucifixion resurrection, journey to the under world, or unconsciousnes and back. The descent of the soul and its turning point in time as Rudolf Steiner likes to say, is a question in our hearts of timing, awareness, higher love. its a question of who’s got it right enough to ‘stay in forward’ and not have to keep slipping backwards into same old same old, reliving old movies and mistakes, one’s own and others. Its a quest and question of radical stillness and listening heart, YogaMind i call it in my book. Repeat offenders can be a problem, working on oneself and letting others go for a moment may be a good part of the resolution and solution to well being and spiritually becoming.

Oct. 6th Moon occults (conjuncts) Pluto, another progressive or digressive step, regeneration and making whole, or degenerating, deactivating, ill at ease,  (activating oct 3rd and 14th). Try not to take anything personally and over react inwardly or outwardly. No shame or blame, just learning; as Marianne Williamson use to tell me.

     Take it personal to invoke your own higher self, your own intuition of ‘God’, virtue, Higher Self, Buddha Mind, Christ Consciousness, call it what you will, but call it into your personal life!

    Pluto aspects good for clearing space for the new to enter, or for renewing the good true beautiful in self and others. Good for cleaning, fixing up, home work, renewing. Otherwise pluto can be degenerative with slow breakdown and sense of inevitability. Pluto demands selfless honestly and pure heartedness, otherwise secret selfishness limits the great possibility of infinite good. Mantra and Prayer good for centering and breathing into source, center, I AM, or Christ Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness. Prayer is talking to God, Meditation is listening to God; God is Love, not an ‘ego’ projection.

Oct. 7th Mercury oppose Uranus & Sun square Saturn makes for a serious day weighing the consequences of one’s actions, or lack of free will and compassionate for everyone actions. Often such aspect first half of October make for world events pushing many into immediate action or response. Extremes in the weather and emotions have some places and spaces too hot to handle, or too cold to warm up with enough love. Truth sets you free, love commits you to deeper passage and passion. Follow your highest ideal, work to make manifest; live the life to share the teachings.

October 8-9th Mars oppose Chiron in Aries. Tendency to act out of woundedness and estrangement rather than higher self calling. Or is it a passage, a doorway, a time to move through something rather than get stopped by something. In my book i see Chiron more like Chiron the boatsman in old Greek Myth reality, the one who carries you in and out of the underworld or worldly affairs. Its Hermes and Athena who connect heaven and earth, higher and lower self. Hermes is ArcAngel Michael to Steiner, Artemis/Athena is divinizing Sophia Wisdom. (See the Mission of Michael, and Isis, Mary, Sophia by Steiner at Mayflower)

     Opportunities to rise to the higher calling, rise to the occasion with great nobility of spirit and virtue soul is at hand. Avoid letting others trigger your fears and needy littleness, be big, put wings on your heart, Breathe! Wish and Bless! Feelings of crossing the river styx attempting to get to more light, higher ground, greater insight, and feelings of unity prevail midst the stormy times. Sound intelligence over unruly emotions rule. Passion for Truth, higher Truth, is king here (or at least worthy knight, Parzival).


Oct. 12 Venus in Libra oppose Uranus in Aries. What’s good for everybody concerned, a greater social cultural collective, family and friends may be strongly contested by either a whacky materialistic genius or egoist. None-the-less, creative free loving people are at odds with each other. too. Hasty rash forceful actions may backfire. Seek a love more inclusive of others, truth, freedom, creative social abilities and arts. Avoid rash action leaving others out of the decision making. This wildly creative or opposing energetic runs into Oct. 14th when Sun conjuncts Pluto and Moon conjuncts Uranus. This aspect good for free play, arts, making amends, or starting new healthy trends!

Oct. 13 Full Moon in Aries on the heels of yesterday’s Venus/Uranus urges one to make something new happen, rise to the next higher level, initiate change, be done with what doesn’t work for one’s higher self, for world at hand nor future.

     A sense of get over it already, or sense of wanting to quicken what nature is taking too long to do. Be patient and think long term, but make changes positive to oneself and one’s environment if you can. Highly creative and free loving time. Yet its important to know this ~ its fall and we are heading toward the BIG SATURN conjunct PLUTO this coming January 2020! Early warnings end of Sept into first half Oct. Will January be the finality, the final act of much of the psycho drama and pollution the world is in. Tough time for good food, clean air and water. It all starts with each and every one of us. The real change begins here in the heart and mind and what at hand.

     Outward fall into winter, but inwardly its the opposite (see Steiner’s ‘Four Seasons and the ArchAngels’, as well as his ‘Cycle of the Year’. So now, feel spring inside blooming your heart and soul. Outwardly fall, inwardly a rise of awareness, consciousness. Outwardly be patient as Buddha’s Mother awaiting birth of Buddha, of Higher Consciousness, real freedom and truth inside out. Be the patient compassion mother for lost wounded souls. Be patient with your own fears and desires, see through it. Avoid knee jerk reactions and hasty ill thought out actions. Full Moons push everyone to the limit and stir up things, strongly shift gears up or down. .

    If one is too outgoing then perhaps an ‘in-turning’ needed in days to come. If too inward, outer pulls and longings occur. breathe into the tension of opposites, breathe into the middle way, avoid extremes but enjoy the show.

     Here its wise to play but keep rooted to one’s spiritual mindfulness, one’s spiritual practice, one’s stillness at the eye of the storm. Full Moon is when the Sun and Moon , the inner and outer , tug at each other often finding opposing points of view. With Pluto ’T-Squaring’ Sun and Moon opposition, there is serious sense of foreboding, death, need to rise higher, and need to renew, rebirth, reactivate higher notions, angels, virtues. Its in the air.

     Strong sense of unfairness and need for justice in news again. Pluto impels one to look to deeper issues at cause of outer effects. A sense of either birthing higher self in oneself, or sense of need to purify and make proper changes for higher calling, work, and play.

   Strong sense thru to mid October of wanting to lose oneself to find oneself. Also of wanting to more deeply discover oneself to lose the crazy outer things bugging and eating at you. avoid ‘Creature Comforts’ of feeding astral entities. Fear is where lack of love. Anger takes away other’s freedom and its lack of honest need to keep learning for oneself better way to go rather than force or manipulation for results. For some a very amazing time of spiritual connection, artistic creative adventure, and new found inner freedoms. Its all about the training of the mind and the capacity to cognize and creatively interact. See tibetan lama Gelek Rimpoche book Odyssey to Freedom for lam rin gradual path. See Outline of Occult Science for Grail ‘gradual path’ of wisdom enlightenment.

October 14th Sun square Pluto and Moon conjunct Uranus. Negative emotions, using forceful tactics, projecting anger, guilt, blame, shame, jealousy, create more negativity and trouble. Have an opinion or personal facts but leave others free to get it on their own.  Things can happen really fast here. Many seem to be losing it. Panic and feelings of being overwhelmed need to be balanced by nature walks, slowing things down, chewing food better, yoga and exercise, getting enough sleep, and consciously striving and working one’s mind into working for higher attainment, study, learning, growing. Its a question of balancing work and play, balancing others with self willed learning and spiritual growth.

   For some its a question of taking good break from the come around go around repeat offenders and crazies, zombies, aliens, vampires, and negatives. Taking a break from what you can fix and retreat, retreat to heal, repair, renew, review, study, reflect, to re-emerge later.

    Second half of month influenced by Jupiter conjunct Ceres the Mother Astroid. Many feel like mothering or feel need to be mothered. Hearty oatmeals, soups, grains and greens, squash go far here to nourish, but we also need to nourish the soul with greater spirit truth and love. Yoga, reading, meditation, renewed vigor for self improvement rather than always trying to improve others and having results that ‘nothing is good enough’.

    Also second part in particular but all month, a sense of Demeter the Great Mother attempting to redeem that fallen part of us, that Persephone fallen or on an important mission in the underworld, earth, to redeem lost souls and parts to return to wholeness, being co-creative agency for positive change, gardening both earthy and spiritual awakening soul, higher angelic proclivity, virtue minded Spirit for the World, in a Word, ‘LOVE, higher Love. SparkSunshine to weave yr wings back on. (my song on youtube, ‘Weave your Wings” Weave love through every heart and mind, feeling at one with every other. There is One Light and Love, each is unique lampshade, cover and mask, art, over the oneness. Here there is no enemy, only temporary ignorance and illusion, lack of seeing truth holding us all. Be the love heals one and all. Unity in diversity. We are all born equal in our opportunity and chance of enlightenment, higher flowering of consciousness, love and truth. ‘We the People, for the People, by the People’  our Constitution and Bill of Rights, Declaration of Principles idealizes. Its not wee on the people, make fortunes off people, and buy the peoples. Its time to respect and honor all living. This takes education and love.Be the change you’re looking for. Share but make time for yourself.

Oct 15th Mercury in Scorpio trine Neptune in Pisces. Escapism or is it spiritual idealism inspiriting greater adventure? Take care not to be too busy that you miss your own subtle mind whispers of divine intent, fate, destiny, opportunity knocking.

Oct. 21st Venus trine Neptune. Ideals of love overtake one’s day to day mind. Good for planning the future, trips, adventures, music and the arts. Avoid too many sweet or burdening dead foods, this is a time to feel life, respond to a greater call of the wild. Primal instincts and dreams over ride mundane matters.

Oct. 23rd Sun enters Scorpio. Passion and selfishness struggle with necessity and inevitability. Fate and destiny clink glasses. Coming four weeks like a game of Truth or Consequences, bad karma or divine destiny. Watch and learn, pick a curtain and walk on through. Some more passionately throw themselves into the game, some turn cold. Remember to treat others how you would like to be treated. Have a strong opinion but leave others free to discover for themselves. Avoid making judgements and critique of others that serves no one good. Change what can be changed, otherwise keep to being a student of life long learning. Pick your battles maybe, but face honestly what is right before you. Sneaks get tweeted in coming times. The honest secret is great virtues sleep to awaken from within. Making others cause of your happiness or sadness doesn’t work in long run. Just cus you don’t show it, don’t mean you don’t need to own it. Negativity is its own result, more negativity to come. Be positive.

Oct 24-26th Dark Moon Lilith conjunct Venus (influence starts oct 17th with mercury/Lilith conjoined). A very sensuous time (or severe lack of gravity) attempting to find union with greater possibilities and notions. Subtle airs of soul mating or seeking higher power, knowing. Important to worry more of one’s own proclivities and subtle mind, one’s own subtle mind, right motive, action, with more self love and truth, the more sharing.

October 27th New Moon in Scorpio, Mars in Libra square Saturn in Capricorn. Lots of pressure on for truth in facts. Strong sense of need for renewal, cleansing, purifying, completing things and moving on.

Mars/Saturn has things at stand off, or standing still, feeling need for use of force or higher authority to get things done. Mars can be angelic or virtuous help/aid. Saturn can be wisdom come through time, elder assistance, karma straightening things out and teaching lessons. Many a line now drawn in the sand. Very serious and foreboding, yet come monday october 24th Sun oppose Uranus, may make many a surprise turn, reversal, sudden change of plans, surprise, or shock. Sudden change or new information redirecting things. Upsets, shifts, surprises, novelty, wit at play. Sun is light on uranus changes.

Oct. 29th Moon conjunct Venus and Mercury with Mercury conjunct Venus on  Oct 30th makes for smooth sailing and clear skies, luck, out of nowhere. Also sudden sense of truth, love, new sane reality, appearance of what may work tor creative progress or good for most of us.

Oct 31st Halloween has Moon conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius, but also Mercury goes retrograde at the end of Scorpio until November 20th., trine Neptune along the way. Good for parties and catching up on biographies and stories. Many want to dream out, space out, let go of tough reality. Possible severe weather and winter coming, but now frolic night before all saints, all virtues day.

     in coming weeks mercury retro; Many dream on or fall back. Perhaps many too high? Meds not working right? False imagination? Desires and fears having trouble with reality and hard cold facts? Good time to prepare oneself for better futures to come, or a need to step back from some situation your are not ready for, or not well thought out enough with details. With Mercury retrograde its best not to make heavy agreements you may not want to follow through on later. Avoid major decisions. On the other hand, astrology works in opposites and higher and lower octaves of event possibility depending on the individual~ how smart, how good the karma, capacity, talent. So Mercury retrograde can be a time to really get to know what you want, desire, and aim for, Good time to overcome fear with greater love and truth. Good time to dream real and plan good futures. Good time to fall back and fix a few things, making right on some mistakes not flight to further mistakes and hard learning. Some feel trapped or stuck and fume or boil over; but working on new learning always helpful for new views, greater perspective. Avoiding hiding under the mask or being fooled by someone who is. Good time to find right direction for higher love calling vocation work play.

November 2nd Moon occulting Saturn/Pluto subtly triggers impending troubles, problems, hurts needing solutions and healing.

Nov. 5th Mars square Pluto is a sad affair, some sorry they didn’t dare a higher highway truth and love. Such aspect usually brings out the upset, anger, hate, gun play, violence, threats and counter threats. Such aspect spiritually is meant to fight of truth, goodness, justice, repair everywhere. Deep compassion and passion for truth and love needs banish fear, hate, crookedness.

Nov.. 8th Sun sextile Saturn, Sun tine Neptune, Such aspect works to bring a more peace and harmony to warring sides. An attempt at compromise and agreement is at work everywhere. The ideal and workable compromise is struck for many. Peace and Love have a day or two here, perhaps a month.

Nov. 12th Full Moon in sensuous and honestly practical down to earth sign of Taurus. Happy week to come making things work for self and other.

Nov 14th Venus square Neptune is silly idealistic or otherworldly, Beware of false dreams or signs and dreams misinterpreted. Good for poetics, lovers, artists, musicians, heavenly bodies and spiritual wanderings, journeys.

Nov 20th mercury goes direct. Much insight into past pushes us positively into future.

Astro News and Spirited Views ~~~

Sept 5 Mercury in Virgo until Sept 22 adding to the critical mind
needing constructive postive input and output. Time to clean up negative or lost in space thoughts and get back to the school of life.

Sept. 6-7th Saturn direct from retrograde, Mercury trine Uranus and Saturn making grand trine, Sun oppose Neptune. Pressures top down, bottom up for truth, but hard to find. Political/Corporate manipulation of social cultural realities and concerns; lies and deceit along with startling revelations of what was once secret. Insatiable needs and melt downs? The power for change, for some a change of power. Many hanging on to bitter end. Good time for yoga and meditation, long walks and few deep patient breaths. Need to back off those things making you feel tired and drained, over burdened, over used, and feeling like you are going nowhere. Good for practical planning and envisioning better futures. Work to solidify good ‘thinks and things’ in your life. Appreciate, don’t depreciate. No expectations, no let downs, No appointments, no disappointments. In fact, don’t point at all, go round and embrace all sides for awhile. Avoid inflationary statements and deflationary situations. Keep a balance, the middle way, the golden mean. Love everyone, you don’t have to like em.

Sept 8th Venus in Libra square Mars in Capricorn. Art vs Money, love vs security clash. For those who can handle it, erotic or romanic romantic robust sensuality or sense of arousal and need for proper outlet or expression. Passion for work and art. A sense of happiness heading home or toward long term security, love, friendship. Wanting to move away from negativity and more towards peace and love, friendship with a goal.

Sept 10 Mars goes into Aquarius (till mid November) and is near square again to Uranus (exact on 18th, see below). Such aspect brings out the maverick freedom fighter with a lust for progress and change, but also the suddenly angry violator, trespassers of others rights. Good for sudden telling of truths or revealing unknown before now facts. Venus/Moon’s Node/Lilith come into play here too with Mars Uranus bringing ‘Wild Women’ together with ‘Wild Men’ triggering either amazing love adventure or notorious conflict/resolution and warring among opposites, or the sexes. For many, an up and down, sudden turn around, sudden fling or throw back time. Higher Truth, Love and Compassion, and much patience and wisdom will be needed at this time to avoid conflict. Sudden threat or explosive situations.

Sept 12th Jupiter sextile Pluto, Venus opposes Uranus, and later in day Venus sextile to Saturn. Powerful alliances in both money and love. Unsettling facts for some, for others highly exciting prospects, unions and adventure, plans. Some feel suddenly forsaken or thrown out of situation. Some escape or free self from difficult circumstances. Sudden turn of luck. Danger in gambling.

Sept 13 Mercury oppose Neptune, dreams and ideals, plans for the future; or lies and misleading facts, false promises. Avoiding the truth, not wanting to face the facts. The creation of illusion or false premise. At times, truth vs lie confrontation. Blurry thinking or perceiving, seeing. Idealists and mystical inclinations.

End of September into October, Pluto midpoint Jupiter/Neptune midpoint brings urge to go beyond limits, speculations beyond measure, possible great losses, (or for few ‘gains’?) ;for some great gain or connection, union, joint venture. For some possible end to unreasonable plans and hopes/desires without measure, possible strong losses in investments and markets, danger of too risky or speculative involvement, bankruptcies and loss. Danger of wanting to make money without working or making true effort. Pluto here too can be sudden reckoning and need to correct ill thought out plans, need to heal obvious blunders in ecological and economic thinking. Tendency to over criticize others to avoid working on oneself. The end of a dream or false hope and the rebirth of simple life style and renewed sanity. Need to avoid obsessive compulsive trying to help others you can’t help, or who don’t even want your help in the first place. Taking things too personally. Tricky time for all major investments both financially and emotionally, personally. Having said this, I also want to say such aspect may be playing into 2020 Saturn conjunct Pluto and setting a base for a more singular world wide economic plan attempting to set pattern for more regularity and control, hopefully more peace and less paranoid arms bulging and building, more gardening and humanitarian taking care of each other in both necessities, health, and education. Pluto on the Jupiter/Neptune point in Capricorn is also the midpoint between Jupiter/Uranus in Aquarius midpoint and the Jupiter Pluto midpoint in Sagittarius indicating goodness and creativity anew coming out of this time along with the stress and pressure of our individual and collective labor pains of love attempting to give birth to higher consciousness conducive to greater world peace, joy and wisdom.
With Uranus trine USA Progressed Moon (in Sagittarius Rising Chart) exact Sept. 21 but influencing the month, Women seem on the rise and ever more empowered and smart on the move upwards, possible announcements and major exciting moves in politics and futurism. New discoveries and break throughs, new thought combined with force of feeling positive.
Sept. 18th (influences 19th to 20th Sept) Mars square Uranus, can bring brave courageous action and sudden arousal of virtuous and creative action. Take care to play it safe here; crazy danger around this day. Such aspect can precipitate unnecessary violence, anger, negative emotion, escalating troubles, wrong gun play, accidents, crashes, storms, strong winds, loss of patience, hasty moves triggering blow ups, crazy ups and downs, wild news, and nasty vibes and environs. Flips and turn arounds, upsets, hasty premature actions. Great aspect for experimenting in music and the arts, but tendency to get too forceful or loud, over the edge, without boundaries or allegiance to harmony, beauty. Basically, the last month has been the public crucifixion and psychic execution of the ‘Strip Naked Magazine Mind’ and ‘Agent 007’ mentality that one can grow up, be filthy rich, take the house down, assertively win the woman, beat the casino and enemy against all odds, and sail at the end of the movie into an eternal sunset of pleasure. The false image of winning by beating up the enemy seems wrong to me. Some see these times as an etheric crucifixion of the Christ, the Universal love and truth, the universal friend. How do we convert or be alchemists in transforming negativities to positivities? None-the-less , this aspect of Mars Uranus once again triggers all geo-political hotspots and maniac people looking for trouble and fights without wisdom, foresight nor hindsight, attempting to stir change but wherein nothing really changes for the better, just on going conflicts and perpetual warring. Its crazy to keep causing further suffering without thought of long term future consequences for self and other, the world. Here wisdom needs oversee partial genius and short sighted hasty quick intention. The road to hell is paved with good intention. Virtuous action long term and for the good of all is called for. a need to peacefully and patiently look deeper into self and other. Courage for truth holds us all sacred at core, live that. Stocks, politics, and weather can be a bit strange and full of vicissitudes. Good time to stop going through changes and root deeper into cooking, cleaning, making home, being regular reliable and trustworthy at work and play, diet and sleep, exercise and spiritual practice. Work on self to more creative change world around.

Sept 22nd 9:55 pm est Autumn Equinox, day equal to night, and days now start to get shorter and nights longer till winter solstice in December. Sacred time for all spiritual and earthly cultures throughout history. To the ancient Celts and Druids, early essene, and many more, Autumn Equinox (when the Sun enters the astrological sign Libra) is the esoteric (inner spiritual) beginning of the new year. This Autumn Equinox, Sun and Mercury are in artistic and legally balancing Libra and Sun opposes Chiron in Aries. Many seek some sort of reconciliation or new balance with self and other, world. Chiron wants to heal but with opposition take care not to re-new conflicts, making for a couple of weeks of opposite polarities lost for harmony, healing, balance, acknowledgement, and balanced communication. Political and economic conflict, or renewed struggle, stress and tension, warring, stormy. Sun/Mercury trine Mars and dark moon lilith gives strength to those willing to strive and work with others toward innovative and novel pursuits, new levels of negotiating, higher consciousness.. Now the time of ArcAngelic Inner Sun forces and intelligence, St. Michael time of inner awakening. Time of the Celtic New Year being reborn within us for sure.

Sept. 23 Mercury square Saturn and Mercury trine Mars. Truth tries to get out now. The Truth holds us all sacred or more fighting facts? Conservative restraint and discipline conflict with aggressive need to progress? For some over indulging leads to trouble/problems. Need to think before acting hastily. Some stuck in old ways and won’t let go of neither pleasure nor pain use to having. Addictions killing many here.Those working with and for benefit of others seem to achieve more success than lone dogs and aggressive or selfish hedonists, egotists, and playing without responsibilities to others benefit and growth.

Sept 21st to 24th (exact) Harvest full moon 2 degree Aries (10:52 pm est) Enjoy the 21st to Full Moon on 24th cus on 25th Sun/Saturn snaps us back to work and reality and things need fixing, patient wisdom, and healing.

Sept 25 Sun square Saturn, extremes in weather, cold shoulder or circumstance, hot headed? Need to fix something (teeth, car, facts and accounting for ). Good for hard work, catching up, getting more exercise or sleep. Bad for pushing too hard and always negative or complaining. If contemplative and thoughtfully wise, ‘light and love’ arises to solve or resolve difficult problems, solid long term solutions may arise; otherwise more patience and waiting. Some experience more road blocks and a need to pull it in tighter aligning oneself with the long term rather than short term and immediate results. Here haste makes waste.

Sept. 27th Sun trine Mars, strong talk or thrust to push things forward, align with smarter or wiser path and goal. A push in the right direction. A sense of ‘Go’. Good for exercise and gentle persuasion. Courage and passion for honest striving, yes; but don’t accidentally run over another’s good dream eh?!

Sept 30th. Pluto goes direct from retrograde since last April. Should start to give better sense of where we are really going and better sense of future down the road. Hopefully lots of emotional stress and feeling stuck now gets worked out with compassion and patience for everyone’s higher self. Pluto often associated with really selfish moves, jealousy, negative emotions, attachment, hatred and more. Good for compassion and wisdom’s two wings to enlightenment and freedom.

End of Sept. into Oct. Pluto midpoints Jupiter/Neptune as Pluto close to midpoint of Jupiter/Uranus and Neptune/Pluto. Also first days of October, Saturn transit opposes USA Venus possibly indicating major pull back or drop in the markets, possible death or ending of some rich or famous politician, movie star, celebrity? Ego? False self? Or is it a sense of ending and new beginning for some. Fall from grace for some; loss of name, fame, money, love, respect. Falling out of love with past. Some dig into transformative alchemical renewal and healing or new start. Endings and new beginnings abound. Good time to retreat or go in deeper in research, renewal, cleaning, ridding of unneeded items, cleaning and fixing up. Early November Saturn oppose USA Jupiter, also Saturn opposing USA Sun next year makes for a number of months of serious need to find sure footing, predictable economics not up and down in extremes ever changing. Need for sound reliable security and control in an ever expanding and contracting, up and down swirling world. Sadness in high places. Need for long term planning, not hot shot maneuvering. A search for deeper meaning and purpose. Financial and World Market concerns for securing long term begin now and may last for few years.

Oct. 22 2018 and Jan 6 2019 Neptune transit conjunct USA Progressed Sun; for some confusion and stuck in weird weather, weird food, fake circumstance and unreal circumstances, escapism or illness. Good time to take it easy and avoid gamble or stress or investing in pipe dreams and false futures. Good for art, music, mystics, far future planning. Uranus retrograde into dec./jan on square to USA natal Pluto will continue stress and pressures to change old power structures into something more intelligent, creative, and freeing for all.

Nov. 16th Venus direct from retrograde since Oct. 5th, and on same day Nov. 16th Mercury goes retrograde. All ahead love, but crazy markets and politics? Follow your bliss and happiness, your virtue and creativity, not your projections and negative criticisms of others. Work on your beautiful self to tame the wild beast.

Nov. 24th Neptune goes direct, such aspect starts to wake many from false dreams and projections held onto for last year or more. Dreams come true start to appear in next months for some. Others wake up to better ground sure and facts that hold.

Nov 26 Sun conjunct Jupiter happiness overflows and flowers smile from the heart. Good day to share, reach out and connect or reconnect. Good day for friendships and prosperity, play, productivity. Avoid extremes or foolhardy gambling or over indulgence.

Nov 29 2018 and feb 19 2019 in USA Chart, transit of Uranus conjunction Progressed Venus, unpredictable Love life and strong shifts in American likes and dislikes. Need for new view of exactly what sex and love is, what its for, what is happiness and freedom, self and other. For some separation, for others quick uniting and coming together. Many seek fun and excitement over security and routine at this time. Tendency to rediscover roots and wings of love. Rewriting the book of love. Sudden shifts in likes and dislikes. Crazy hollywood, music, and entertainment news. Arts and crafts, music, love, higher intelligence thrives on such aspects. New cultural artistic fashion trends. New feel for life.

Dec.6th Mercury direct, mind clears up for right action and thoughts to carry us through holidays into new year.

Dec 7th new moon 15 sagittarius with Mars conjunct Neptune that day (influencing next few days or month even) leads to a few weeks of crazy talk from everyone, loose tongues and loose cannons, danger of food poisoning in parts, or ecological mess. Mars/Nep also can bring a mystifying loss of direction, discipline, and diet. On the positive side for those attuned, new truths and revelations spark new journeys and travel, future plans. Mars Neptune is very active imagination that may need practical direction. Truth is so important at this time.

Dec. 9th Moon occults Saturn and Pluto making for weird day of serious reckoning with bottom lines and end of the line projectories. Extremes in weather and/or emotions, tendency to be too serious and scary, controlling, severe. Good day to catch up to past rather than push futures. Delays or obstructions, or opportunities for patience and compassion and great wisdom to persevere. Stormy weather coming…?!

December 15th Jupiter transit conjunction to natal USA Sagittarius Rising Sign. Everybody wants to go big! Few listen and inwardly deepen. And yea, this is a party or play aspect, happiness and friendships abound. Postitive aspect for education, travel, prosperity, feeling happiness in general, positive voices for present into future. New sense of knowing. An ‘All Ahead, Go!’ sense of things. Lucky in love and money and friendships, connections.

Dec. 22 Full Moon in Cancer. Good time to take stock in home and heart, friends/family/togetherness, inner spirit callings. Peak out time indicating a really intense year ahead.

Dec. 24 Mercury square Neptune, loss of good judgement? or intuitive impulse buying?

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. 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.

June 2019 Pluto trine USA Neptune, again Sept 2019
Deeply moving spiritual events and experiences help all see we are one planet, one family of friends. 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.
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.
