ASTRONEWS~  overview 

(see monthly aspects for feb/march below this overview)

With Jupiter coming to trine Elizabeth Warren’s natal Moon, watch her rise in the ranks of popularity in coming weeks (or at least hanging near the top). Astrologically, I still think she may be our next President, although Bernie still heavy contender (see below). Gosh, what if they joined hands and ran together? If Michelle Obama enters the race, astrologically she would most likely win. But so would Oprah. Michelle may do it by democratic convention. Astrology talk coming soon when I will go all over this and more; astrological forecasts.

    Bernie Sanders made it through some tough astrological aspects (heart health and more). Bernie has transiting Pluto about to oppose his Mars so taking care of health and more positivity, and less yelling, is a very necessary energetic to progress his way by. As Uranus comes to trine his Midheaven/Sun late May into June on, he’s rising again and his voice is not going away; even though a big bump in the road approaches. Pluto can be positive when aligned rightly with the underdog and popular common collective consensus. Can be empowerment rather than disempowering. None-the-less more care is needed not to trip, fall, have accident. Also possible travel problems, making enemies and more with Pluto/Mars. Mr. Bernie, take care, wisdom and compassion, what right to do, not just external rights, but courage for truth holds all of us inwardly true too!  Yes!.

    Joe Biden with transit of Saturn oppose his Jupiter may be tiring out, petering out, and losing support of the rich and mighty, or even about to have legal money hassles.   With transit of Uranus 150 degrees quincunx from his ascending rising sign, Joe may feel thrown from the horse, side tracked from hot reality intellect, or even on the wrong track. Uranus slowly coming to square his natal Pluto and oppose his Mars may indicate retirement and/or health issues coming down the road. Good for taking back seat and researching, perhaps writing.

     Though Mike Bloomberg may get a blip of rise with Jupiter transit trine his mars/saturn/uranus coming, his transit of slow moving Saturn/Pluto coming to oppose his ascending sign and natal Pluto does not portend of popularity in the long run. Many starting to think the richest don’t care to educate nor free the bottom, no matter what they say. Mars transit trine his moon/sun in Aquarius at the moment for short spell, certainly gives Mike strong presence and gusto maverick thruster rockets of display and presence progressive.

Pete Buttigieg has blip of success as mars transit squares his natal jupiter but with Saturn coming to conjunct his natal Sun and square Pluto, this may prove short lived.

More on all these candidates later.

President Trump’s transit of Mars conjunct Moon while opposing his natal Sun/Mercury makes for sharp smarts and words that may project the nasty meanies. Many see him as their economic warrior hero. Coming soon Saturn/Venus end of first week of February into March adds much stress and feelings of having to defend or react, fight off something. March is astrologically critical time for wisdom, patience and right action. Possible troubles from rash actions, but can be quite gutsy and robust in outspoken response. With such aspect one needs take care not to speak or act too quickly as to make matters worse and put oneself in unfavorable light. Avoiding hasty actions will deter accidents and hard response with little way out for others, little room to move, adds pressure to events. It also puts one on the defense, often in need of strong purposeful response. This could be concerning and negative to markets, economy, geo political hot spots, feuds between feudal lords, political in fights, challenges with personal attacks and feelings of betrayal. Also may be connected to matters concerning response to China and CoronalVirus troubles, along with its many implications for difficult travel and affect on trade, and markets, economics. So far markets jumping into high rise. Can this go on forever? Bit of roller coaster for many.

    Jupiter trine Trump’s midheaven end of march, or other aspects end of April hopefully will bring happier less stressful, more peaceful times and results good for all of us. Otherwise we need to make it to Jupiter/Saturn conjoined in Aquarius this coming december for mutually beneficial times to roll in for all of us. In December more of a vibration of mutual agreement and social justice. Now into all March is a time to learn to clearly see how to work a better way out of the incredible polarization and seeming emotional/astral/psychic civil war both the nation and the world state is experiencing. May our higher angel and deeper virtue deed awaken our every day toward a greater peace and love to prevail. May inspirational voices be heard, may hearts awaken with the highest intelligence.

In the USA sagittarius rising chart, Neptune transit squares the natal Mars/Uranus making for continuous miscue, misinformation, disinformation, lies and lipstick. Confusion who is the enemy or wrong. Victims abound and forgiveness and/or conversion/transformation rare. Conspiracy theories abound which lead to no clear result nor positive change. Same with crazier hollywood entertainment, an oft containment of imagination. Political incest grows, fearful violent entertainment persists, lies and falsehoods in high places dislocate many from real time and space. Neptune can make one feel vampirized, tired, drained. Eating more grains and greens, miso seaweed soup, salt baths, exercise, down time and sleep, meditation and yoga can help. Reading Steiner, HPB, Osho, Manly Hall, NeoPlatonism, Yogananda, Sufism, Tibetan Buddhism, Zen, Alchemy, Kabala, all can help free the mind from the tyranny of sense bound thinking and ‘pirate booty’, dead end soul life, and lack of hope.

    How much does the government spend on propaganda toward its own people again? Neptune is deception and lack of transparency. To say nothing of outside rich influence and propaganda on all media and more. Neptune on the flip side can be some pretty amazing but weird scientific breakthroughs, if not break downs in truth and fact. Many an artistic and spiritual experiences too available for some. One needs a healthy balance, a finding of the middle way, the golden mean, the wisdom of nature and healthy life style. Wisdom compassion and smarts, common sense, is needed to discern and discriminate the real from the unreal, the light from the dark, the more eternal immortal from the jungian ‘demon lover’ of wrong habit and addiction, wrong suffering producing no insight nor result sure, good, true.

     End of April Jupiter transit trine USA Midheaven may help heal, rightfully reveal, a way to go good for all of us. Demonizing and scapegoating others has to go. Access to healthy honest free debate and sharing is an american necessity to freedom. Projecting completely on others rather than working on self, rather than educating, healing, making whole, making friend, learning to work with, compromise, resolving issues rather than revolving and procrastinating reality and challenge to the future. Now is the time to be transformed inside out. Now the time to work together, not just push opinions. We need our leaders to understand the words “by the people, for the people”.

     Transiting Mars opposing USA natal Sun first week of March may well bring March Madness and storm, also feelings of being threatened and having to take a stand. Much outspokenness and urge to easily anger. Guns again then come into question as a loss of freedom and protection rather than protection and freedom.  Mars conjunct USA Pluto end of march may give strong clue to nature of the Pluto return coming. Sudden turn of events, endings or completions occur then. For some, an engaging in the Great Work of healing and spiritually mindfully awakening the world.

     Mid February Saturn conjunct Pluto after effect may bring very severe weather and cold to many places. Other places get weirdly warmer! Things seem dead locked or locked down, or torn down the middle. Chronic diseases and care for sick and elderly as well as the little ones may be at issue. Health care, insurance, quality food and life style at risk? Because Pluto in the USA second house, continued need for strong economical controls. Perhaps international money issues at steak. Insecurity about security, and need for more security about insecurities is issue and play.

   March 7th Mars oppose USA Sun followed by Mars square USA Saturn again forces many to look at solution to gun violence and acting or reacting out of fear. Danger or warlike escalades. Need to redirect or heal anger and selfish aggression. Need for new courage to love with wisdom and truth, compassion and spiritual insight. Need to act quickly, boldly, honestly and true to protect, heal, nourish, secure. Feelings of hard work. Money and health issues may abound. Time for disciplined action and working plans for long run. Immediate quick results awkward and tough.

At this point in March, the events of last few years are heading for culmination, endings and/or new beginnings. Serous demands for attention, sustainable reasoning and insight pertinent to a unified whole world. A need for right action based on right facts and higher wisdom/truth. By March coming, events will ‘pop the pimple’, expose the thief, possible clarify many a world problem or  trouble at hand. For the moment, things come to a head, kind of a truth or consequences’.

   Or is it reactive feelings of being cut off from truth and love trying to now rule? March sets up need for real World Peace and Love, treaty and mutual cooperation, which may take till December into coming years to manifest properly.

   Deep appreciation, discovery, responsible commitments abound when Jupiter joins (conjuncts) Saturn in Aquarius in December 2020. At that time many events trigger a sense of a new age of enlightenment, peace, progress for all, and a new time of awakening, renaissance. Then perhaps the seed energetic for a real Aquarian Age of Higher Peace and Love, Truth and Justice will emerge in the heart, soul mind of both individual and collective human experience.

    But this February now reveals the aftermath of the recent Saturn/Pluto challenge to collective freedom, health, relationship, home, investments, day to day life style, work, travel, play. February reveals more aftermath karma residue of past mistakes, while simultaneously revealing needs for the future, if there is to be one worth living vs.suffering.

     In the beginning of March, Venus in Aries squares Saturn/Pluto

in Capricorn. Here Love and Compassion, the goddess of wisdom, fights a real or imagined Darth Vader, those who have totalitarian selfish greedy harmful selfish bent. Here also higher love speaks to the real needs of the world’s heart soul mind. Some suffer hurt or feeling martyred, in need of attuning to eternal verities and higher intrinsic, transcendent love and truth. Here now is a need for a resurrection of the ‘Christos’, the spark in the heart of the sun which unites every heart with higher purpose, truth, calling. Christos if the ancient Greek Platonic wisdom love will of the Sun, the Solar System as a spiritual being living in every heart as a spark of universal mind, Nous. Living in the fleeting passing moment in search of lasting happiness is the challenge during this time. Living in the eternal principles of love and truth, compassion wisdom, and sharing such is an art and science. Be rich inside to avoid outer pricks. To not be prickled by external rank and fortune get rich within. Get rich with wisdom insight and universal connectivity to all life. READ by book or Steiner, or HP Blavatsky, something!.

   First week of March, VP Mike Pence has transit of Uranus square his natal Mars along with other aspects making me think in astrological terms, that even he is unsure what is happening and where he will end up!? Rising in rank, or falling out!?! Good time for quick growth and new pathways to growth.

     In the last half of March, Mars conjoins Saturn/Pluto in the sky affecting the whole world. Do crazy chaotic events and fears reach a peek and then start to subside, or does the world further imperil itself? Storms and many problems to be solved then. Coronalvirus thing should take honest shape by then so we collectively know what we are dealing with, contained or not.

   This time in all March really may be a bit over the top and dangerous. Or is it heroic time and making of peace not war? Aspects perhaps making for hard times of suffering for many. Time for healing hard past realities, time of struggling against the odds, collective strife and personal miseries, fixated ‘locked in’ sense of fate,  materialistic alone trajectories not considering the greater picture or protecting the little ones. Nee for an ecology of spirit, soul, body, head and heart, earth. Storms and explosive situations. Higher octave is courage to tell the truth and live the high road of virtue, courageous deeds of valor.

March madness!  If not laying honest foundation stone for healthy planet for everyone, ’Mars/Saturn/Pluto’ together in Capricorn give hauntings of new dark ages.  Many lack moral and ethical/virtue education. Many are dumbing down with push button electronics, over medicated, rash freedoms of consumerism rather than inner creative artistry and heathy lifestyle, spiritual development. Times portend of a new coldness of heart, extremes in the weather, barbaric terrors, false materialistic securities, and lack of inner certainties. Higher octave of these aspects portend an attempt to lift up the poor in spirit and means. A compassionate wisdom to deal with crisis opportunities with positive change, growth, rather than just containment and a diminishing of creative awareness and intelligence and social democratic participation.

    Here Viking and Gladiator conquest and profit  mentality may win over the simple homemaker, the small farmer and lover of nature. Piracy and greedy plutocracy seem now very destructive of our futures, while long term sustainable futures seem lost. Yet Saturn and Pluto/Mars can be inevitable wisdom arriving in the nick time.  A sense and need for social justice and equal rights, instead of run over the enemy perceived  and ‘let god figure out the good from bad’ MENtality.

       How we each live our life is the ultimate vote for the future, but still….we need town meetings that aren’t forced and coerced into nefarious results. Freedom and truth are seriously at stake.

   A previous SATurn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn was in 1518 occurred during the ‘Dancing Plague’ or ‘dance epidemic mania’. This started in France spreading into Europe when hundreds danced themselves to death in utter exhaustion.   . What does this indicate in our modern time? Well this —-  psychic ‘contagion’ and ‘Grand Hysteria’. Rudolf Steiner predicted the number one illness of our time would be ‘Hysteria’. One gets all excited and hyper active thinking something big happening, but nothing in fact happens. An individual and collective hyper excitement, frenzy, and over active imagination fantasy, panicky and alarmed,  crazy chaotic feelings that ‘everything is happening at once’, that something great or crazy good or ill was going on, getting all caught up in the moment. But when it was all said and done, nothing of importance or of merit had occurred. All was in vain under the spell of delusion, illusion, and projection.

    Even Tim Leary, in his version of the psychedelic book of the dead, knew one had to eliminate projections to find truth peace sanity, wholeness, individuation, and true freedom from delusion and feverish illusion. Many freeze in fear or burn in frenzy when confronted by real life or its challenges, highs and lows. In the Dancing Plague, authorities at the time in trying to heal such, fostered musicians and entertainers and stages/auditoriums to further allow the hysterical dancers to dance it out day and night thinking this would inevitably bring a cure – but the frantic dancing escalated. We live in a world now that fiddles while Rome burns so to speak. To many are one something, high or depressed. Few are simply present. We live in a world wherein many are full of panic and alarm, hysteria and false projection in real and fancied apocalyptic chaos and confusion. Yet there are real concerns and dangers not confronted till the worse last moment. We can make weapons and threats but not intelligent mutually beneficial peace. We profit by conquering and subjecting the enemy to servants of corporate consumerism and waste. We seem to be killing the world of life. The Food Chain is continually turning toxic and of little if any vitality. Again, profits over true intelligence, wisdom, and health. We soon will learn you can’t eat money nor gold, nor market shares and bonds. And yes i know we need to have healthy investments, especially one’s where real work earns money. We need earth access to those who love, not just want to privately own, the earth. This is a huge conversation. Even Plato and Aristotle conversed and problem’d over such.

     One is reminded of ‘The Dance of Death’ book of early 1500’s which still today mystifies one’s understanding other than acknowledging Bob Dylan’s song phrase ‘He that’s not busy being born is dying’. In esotericism, Samsara or ‘the world’ is either a dance to (and of) death’, or, it is a dance of enlightenment, spiritual freedom and ‘transcendance’, transcendental insight awareness, action.

     Its up to each of us individually to find our way to fulfillment and happiness and creativity, rather than a life dampening the universal flame, we work it, free it, dance it, share it. We need encourage creative freedom and universal love for all God’s creation.

    With Saturn/Pluto (conjunct in Capricorn January 2020 but influencing past, present, future) these are going to extreme times. Capricorn opposes Cancer; danger of food shortages and food price rise. Loss of values of home and family. Square Aries , loss of personal identity or individuality in plutocracies of socialistic corporatocracy and neo-communism. Sat/Pluto square Libra loss of traditional marriage and partnership values, or simply relationships hurt more than heal or flower. And yes, something new is trying to be born that will take time. We are experiencing the labor pains of a higher consciousness birth. The question is whether or not Hades/Pluto is releasing Persephone, the goddess of new spring, ascension, renewal and wisdom flowering; or a regrettable furthering of spiritual soul imprisonment by greed, selfishness, self indulgence, lack of higher aspirations and virtues. A future lock in  to  psychic imprisonment, polarized dissent, virtue descent, and loss of ethical soul spirit freedom, truth, justice, and ‘the American Way’.

     MARCH may well prove the turning point in time for learning healing change, spiritual ethical progress. Here a need to face the need of learning to live on in face of an insane culture, lack of true religion or at-one-ment to all life. An spiritual matterialism in economic and political spheres is inevitably strangling the life and vital etheric subtle body of the planet, and thus of human culture and life as we know it. Whether its stock market or weather/sky manipulation and trickery, gun boat war lord diplomacy, lack of wholistic systems and self organizing universal truths, the world is in trouble. Its an almost insane every man for himself vs totalitarian dicktorial authoritarian dictates without apparent wisdom for the sustainable long run, nor compassion for all life supports us here now. And who is smart enough to deal with it with crisis after crisis at our doorstep?

     The triple coming together of Mars/Saturn/Pluto may influence with difficulties tough to resolve through the rest of the year until Jupiter/Saturn conjoins in Aquarius in December 2020! So take care, no fear, no shame or blame, just learning, growing, sharing.

     Jupiter/Saturn conjunct indicates the establishment of social cultural norms and psychological structures of individuation and collective agreement, a meeting of the highest and lowest in an Aquarian harmony and echo of spiritual reality, ‘on earth, as it is in heaven’. In Hermetics BC, it was ‘As Above, So Below’, a descent of higher self or Christos. Now from deep within, the new mysteries call for an arising or raising of consciousness, an assent to ascent in Higher Consciousness.

    Its also an awareness, a cognitions, of the founding fathers platonic ideal of ‘Unity in diversity’, a deeper oneness permeating all, a brotherhood and sisterhood, a family of humanity. In the coming Aquarian Age, it is the struggle of brotherhood/sisterhood vs Big Brother and 1984 Orwellian totalitarianism and the danger of Plutocracy. Love for one another vs dicktorial ‘power over’ rather than ‘power through’ each other. Those who rule by money, power, authority vs those who heal and grow, nourish, through co-creativity. Now we need conscious growth inward out, and bottom up. Higher self descends with wisdom, an inner arousal of compassion, a sharing and caring for each other. Jesus said ‘Love one another’, not hate and conquer. Its a big learning curve we face.

     Hopefully this is making sense, or sparking your own research and quest. Each of us must learn to awaken right where we are. Learn to make positive change by changing our SELF rather than projecting always on others. Ceasing scapegoating, demonizing, and denying the Christos, Christ, Buddha, Messiah in each and everyone of us.  Truth is this higher compassionate love, truth, wisdom to carry it out, live it. Each is a child of God, child to a living universe. To deny any other a holy spark within, is to deny some part of our self.  Again, Jesus said ‘love one another’, he never said you gotta like em! So its still a learning curve for sure, and a ways to go. Yet we can start to see this higher reality of world spirit working through each one of us for a working of the good true beautiful which Plato called the experience of God in each other.

   The last time Jupiter and Saturn conjoined in Aquarius was between 1226 to 1405 (4 times). For those of you who follow the mayflower bookshop new neo platonic and theosophy of the rosicrucian thinking, this was the time of Chartres Cathedral, the Grail Knight Templar Cathedral Building, the time of ‘Je Tsongkhapa’ the tibetan buddhist reformation, the ‘middle way’, higher yoga tantra. For many a time of overcoming one’s fear of death or the end of the world. Overcoming the primary cause of all suffering, self cherishing, grasping, and desire, fear. Similar to now its was a time of offering a way to both enlightenment and lasting happiness, higher truth. It was the time triggering early Renaissance as well as the time of the ‘Black Death’ or plague thought to have come from Asia. Coincident to the murder by CChurch of the Templars and Witches. (No, Nancy Pelosi nor Taylor swift is a bad witch…)

    The last Jupiter/Saturn in Aquarius before Dec. coming one, was also difficult time for all those in both high and low places, in this way it was non discriminating. Here feudal vs aristocracy/lords of power existed. Yet! The 1405 last of four Saturn/Pluto brought us both Tarot Cards and the beginning of what Rudolf Steiner calls the ,Age of the Consciousness Soul, in which each and all of us has both an inner and outer access to world Spirit and World events, as well as a front row seat to the near apocalypse. Now again is the time of knaves and tyrants, fools and magicians, extremes in rich and poor; as well as, the new inner cathedral builders, tempo and temple builders, the inner spiritual news givers. Now a series of events leading to a possible birth of a ‘Joan of Arc’, a female world hero, or the ‘Christos in the Etheric’ as Steiner and Alice Bailey suggest. But it is also a time dangerous for the appearance of Ahriman (the hardening one hiding in the dark of lies), and in more than one form, a new and tortuous  Phillip the Fair for example. See Steiner’s Apocalypse lectures, or HPB’s ‘The Esoteric Character of the Gospels’ or her writing entitled ‘Thoughts on Ormuz and Ahriman’ where perhaps Steiner first encountered the idea. Also see Steiner’s Fall of the Spirits of Darkness at either mayflower bookshop or Jim’s ‘Steiner Archives’.

    Now in the face of December’s Jupiter/Saturn conjunction;  instead of Ptolemy announcing Earth at the Center of the Universe; I am announcing the Heart, which same letters spell Earth, is at the Center of the Universe! The heart is the center of the universe and the starting and ending point of every spiritual aspiration and practice! Also each of us is building our own little hero of the whole of our life, our own Joan of Arc  or Mother Theresa, Artemis or Isis/Mary/Sophia. Each is birthing or reincarnating a founding father/mother of the future, of freedom and the healthy pursuit of lasting happiness in heart and soul. Birthing our higher truth and love from the womb of holy heart. A new land is emerging in spirit and soul, a new Atlantis founded on truth, virtue, and the original ideals America stands for, truth, freedom and justice for all.  We are building a spiritual tempo, a holy spiritual sacred temple within the heart and soul mind. We are contagious with a universal love and truth, and banish the ‘dis-ease’ of acting out of separateness, causing unconscious suffering from which no one grows nor heals. We are conquering, as spiritual warriors, our own negativity. As alchemists of this new world, we are transmuting our emotional and mental negativities into the clear light of loving wisdom, compassion and viable good work, growing ability, permeability, with all in all. It is a neoplatonic ideal this One for All, and All for One. In such work we are never jobless or poor. Yet the ills and sufferings of the world call us to new learning, deeper stillness, yet higher motivation and vision for truth, love, sharing caring. Selflessly striving and ever activating vaster and yet greater deeds of virtue truth compassion, even in the midst of trouble, a most simplest of every day moment, virtue, breath, awareness.

   To thy self be true, be still and know. And that self is ultimately and intimately connected to every other self. It is not about throwing the thieving thug out of power, it is about converting non-virtue to virtue, transforming fools and ignorance into the good true beautiful, to both family and friend. We aren’t in an evil world, we are in an invisible college of spiritual learning and growth. The alchemy of ‘forgiveness’ is the will to go on fearlessly into the future. Until the whole world is at peace and lasting happiness willing to keep learning anew, becoming the living example of ‘what to do’. Here action speaks louder than words and awakened silence precipitates right action. Look within to go boldly without. (Again see my Astrological Aspect books for further rough sketches , as well as HPB, Steiner, Jewel Heart.)

    China astrology chart reveals many things. For one, Saturn/Pluto transit just conjunct their natal Jupiter in the 12th house indicates a real or symbolic death and rebirth, and possible reduction of both wealth and populace in the collective social identity. A contraction of resource and a facing of ecological or health, economic problems needing immediate ministry and fix. Pluto/Jupiter also indicative of making or losing millions/billions, power. Due to CoronaVirus stocks have dropped, China losing billions, whole cities shut down with no one entering or leaving, kind of imprisoned (12 house opposing 6th, prenatal experience, death and rebirth, imprisonment, overwhelming feelings, sense of collective loss). Or is it a radical new growth surpassing the immediate temporal demands. Karma from Tibet? Hmmm, don’t know. Certainly a call to fix a number of things harmful to the future life of us all. Astrologically an inner death and rebirth of culture, society, realism, facing facts. Forces of freedom /truth and suppression of such, control and fixation, conflict. In September 2020 Pluto retrogrades to conjunct China’s Jupiter again. The ‘pandemic’ and ecological, economic, social and world identity crisis may still prevail then to be a continuing problem, or is there new problems. The December Jupiter/Saturn conjunct in Aquarius falls right on China’s Ascendent indicating healthy new beginnings and long term positive growth, a renewed harmony with world. More a spiritual adult way of dealing with things. Hopefully more transparency and less secret controls. Well lets hope.

     Uranus transit square to China’s natal Moon February into March 2020 may reveal more shocking news and quick changes. The collective day to day rhythms may be radically altered. Perhaps huge wake up, quake or storm or crisis opportunity call. Uranus is urge for freedom or shocks to system. Could be bring break down or break through with technology and communications apparatus, workings. Perhaps many new inventions and higher technology emerging. Big break through with information technology, or temporary break down. Hopefully the world will stop making new weapons and work to discover new ways of living life rather than how to kill life. This whole Crisis Opportunity may in time bestow more freedom and positive change in China, thus the world. Negatively it may trigger a crisis, rebellion, protest, and new hard earned freedoms of the press/peoples. Denial of truth will cost as Uranus progresses in transit on its journey in Taurus coming to square China’s Mars/Pluto. Break through or break down is in the stars. Going to extremes can be big disappointment. Uranus is freedom and new emergence of  communications/technology or breakdown in communications. Its an impulse for higher love and truth. There is no religion higher than truth, no science deeper than real love, no art greater than being Human. I said that….

Ok, enough; now to the AstroNews for feb/march.

AstroNews ~

Feb. 7 Venus enters Aries, exiting and dropping Pisces confusion and duality, and giving certain good goddess energies Artemis booster rockets to truth, social justice, fame and name. Others with thwarting warting aspects wither in the fight or brighter light on prominent issues. Venus in Aries till first week of march gives prominence to woman warriors. Also to new impulses of feminine wisdom sophia. Strong debate, head strong impulses. Danger of French Revolution tactic via Alice in Wonderland Queen OMPhallos impulse ‘Off with their heads’, fighting imaginary perceived enemies rather than all as ‘Children of God’.

“Love your enemies, you don’t have to like em!”

    -Trebore Tau Bodhi, of mayflower

Feb. 9th Full Moon 20 degrees Leo. A sense of strong outer expression, getting things done, forward motions, positive connection, seeing and being seen, shining and being shown, flair for daring adventure, good times, and smiling hearts/faces. Avoid cockiness, egotism, showing off. Strong expressions of individuality. With USA chart transit of Saturn trine Neptune gives sense that ‘things are under control’. For some its energetic for manifesting higher life purposes, ideals, dreams, love. Yet, in the Dow Jones astrology chart, Neptune squares Saturn making for fear and desire for profit without work, drive both the markets and many an investor a bit mad, perhaps even to madly dance in frenzy and panic. Many feel drained from market fatigue, unsure of the future. Medicine stocks may rise as oil falls. Hyper activity to find external rather than internal security and safety net. If unsure of your market move, be very patient and wait till April to reconsider where to land, or how to mend wings.

Feb. 16th Mercury retrograde till March 9th. Mercury at 12 Pisces goes back to 28 Aquarius. Feeling influenced good or bad. Plans without energy for action, or way too much energy and action without good plan. Here is time to cross check your fantasy dreams and imaginations of success and happiness. Are they real, realizable, freeing? A recheck, review, reinstatement, and turn around to try again. How to seek and find true happiness, freedom, creativity, love, is the process at hand. How to find work that renews and commitments that free not imprison and lock one down too much. How to breathe is learned here. Selfless pursuit of truth over psychodrama and amateur merry go rounds. OOPs time to avoid rash hasty decisions, contracts, agreements, travel, promises. Be here now, don’t worry, be happy with little things. Keep practical.

    Also Mars enters Capricorn, one of the more aggressive, no backing down, signs for Mars to be in. Projection and self assertion, force, at all time highs here through to the last day of March when Mars enters the astrological sign of Aquarius. Mars conjoining Saturn/Pluto is powerful configuration of both fear and an audacious sense of conquering, being conquered, power over rather than thru, tyranny or imprisonment, historical happenings both ‘good and ill’ of long lasting consequence; the rise and/or fall of those in higher authority/power/position. The need for strong rules and constriction, conscription, and healing. Enforced behaviour, fate and necessity vs freedom of action and speech are in contest or conflict. Now good time to be aggressive for long term higher goals.

Feb. 25th Sun conjunct Mercury, Super alert day, events awaken one’s mind to impermanence in outer form and foreverness with inner love/truths. Strong statements, facts, clear intention, getting business done, making connection. Possible events triggering quick action/response. Good time for higher learning and buying wisdom knowledge books!

Feb 20 Jupiter sextile Neptune. Highly idealistic universal love and artistic dreams come true. Danger of scandal due to lack of awareness or unconscious desires, fears. Beautiful weirdly warming weather, elsewhere snowy winter wonderlands of cozy up get warm on the inside. Beautiful aspect for connecting with others heart and soul, spirit and body. Can be a foolish time, inflationary time, fast money without mind for investing in self growth. Can for some be sudden loss or disillusionment. Look to the self within for a real gamble and investment, not outside oneself.

Feb 27th-28th Moon joins Venus square Pluto, leads into Venus/Saturn March 3rd. Love gone bad or Love gone deep? International friendship crisis, mistrust. Opportunities for long term alliance for some, for others a break off of alliance. Avoid negative craziness, jealousy, destructive habits and negative speech, over critical non constructive mind. This is a very deep aspect. Some take things too personally, others make it personal and intimate. Good aspect for forming long term bonds, or separating from such. Fanatics in music, love, art, deep knowing. Avoid crazy stress and tension due to feeling forced into things. Need to make boundaries or state clearly needs, desires, dreams, wants, unwants.

Presidential Update

By the end of March, Bernie Sanders has transiting Jupiter conjunct natal Sun along with transiting Uranus conjunct Natal Moon, indicating attempt to toss him out, or an amazing victory come-back enough to keep him in the game, at the last moment. Will he be happy to go home with a smile on his face? No. Could there be an independent run? Very likely (which could happen yet to Trump too by convention time!?). In Mid June Bernie Sanders has transit of Uranus on his Mars, and Jupiter again conjunct Sun. This is another crazy aspect of an attempt to eliminate him as he gains in mass votes and money. Super Delegates (do you know what that is?) are not always voting for who or what the people want. This political thing is complicated. Astrology gives a sense of timing and possible tendencies as to how things go. As stated for Trump when he first ran for office, “This guy is not going away, and could make it to the very end!” Funny strange what ‘antagonistic complementaries’ Bernie and Donald are. Makes Hillary appear like the middle way don’t it? Hmmmm.

During the Democratic Convention in July, Hillary Clinton has transiting Uranus square her progressed Ascendent. Does a third party enter her love life, her political life, her personal affairs? This is a wild aspect demanding new genius and creative wit to keep the pizazz and sparkle in her life. A ride-the-bronco type aspect or rollercoaster ride with many vicissitudes and strange twists and turns, surprises and upset. With Jupiter conjunct Clinton’s Neptune near election, very strange happenings and confusing events may occur that cloud truth and reality. November 17th, Jupiter conjuncts her Progressed Moon, this is a winning aspect in itself. With tough aspects right before inauguration of Saturn square Moon and Saturn opposed progressed Uranus, this is no easy garden picnic. Or did she lose?! January 21st North Node conjunct Hillary’s Midheaven is an event made in heaven, a marriage or attuning to one’s higher self. Hmm, this should prove interesting. By the way, I am not predicting here, I am just reporting aspects.

Donald Trump has the press all over and after him, digging up and elaborating any dirt they can find and making it up if they can’t. And hey, he is an easy and loud target for sure. March 3rd, Uranus opposes his progressed ascendent, if he can ride that one out, he is as good as gold. First half of March Trump will have to avoid recklessness and brash harsh words, possibly having a bumpy ride here. His craving for contest and excitement and his knee jerk reactions to others may get the best of him. He may in his private moments reassess his actions and goals, even reassess why exactly he is running!? He may be considering what further options he may still have to avoid enemies. If by April he quits, he very well may thank the American public for allowing him to learn so much about himself. He will have to avoid legal battles and mud slinging, scandal and waste of resources as Pluto squares his natal Jupiter. How is that going to happen!? His bravado, smile, and smirk has him in high velocity forward motion. Does Mr.Trump break off from the Republican Party? Does he gain more popularity when he rants and raves?! Does he indeed represent the consciousness of money and the American dream of success!? April 24th, Nov. 16th, and next Feb 8th, Uranus in the sky trines Donald Trumps natal Moon; this is an aspect for success, emotional exhilaration, happiness with others, even victory. For sure, ladies and gentlemen, Donald Trump is going to win whether he wins the Presidential Election or not. For he is, mistake it not, for many, the American Way. All the presidential candidates reflect, as in a magic mirror, our personal and collective desires and fears, and our collective and personal conscious and unconscious will and wish. With Progressed Moon conjunct Trump’s Progressed Midheaven late October, this boy can smell success beyond his wildest dreams right around the corner. With Progressed Moon conjunct Natal Venus on January 20th, I wonder … does he win!? Does Hillary’s Jupiter/Neptune aspect represent a dream and illusion she eventually wakes up from? Is Trump a reincarnation of Alexander the Great? Bernie a reincarnation of a Canterbury Monk? Hillary Clinton a reincarnation of General Patton? Or Macbeth in Shakespeare’s play? Another Margaret Thatcher? Could she be a Queen Bee of Political savvy?

After the inauguration, Donald Trump has Jupiter trine Sun (January 25th and February 17th 2017). Did he win and is on to triumphant success as President? Or is he just super happy partying with Bill Clinton on the side lines up close. Gosh, it’s exciting entertainment this political season, or is it?!

Strong Uranus aspects to both the Federal Reserve and the New York Stock Exchange mid March into Full Moon on 23rd may indicate a very volatile shaky Wall Street stock market perhaps taking a dive or two before reascending. Although there may well be some big waves and dips, there are always surfers ready to ride. In August, Jupiter conjunct USA Midheaven should realize a high point in market and economy. Usually as Jupiter leaves a sign, in this case Virgo, many solutions to that’s sign will be realized; i.e. more jobs, health care, environment, rights of workers, education. We will see.

In the USA Chart, a transit of Mars just squared natal Moon and is about to — in April but feeling it now — conjunct USA Ascendent Rising Sign while opposing USA Uranus! This could be trouble. May make many in USA want to be assertive/aggressive strong in expression. Is it militaristic? Mars can also be a great new car, plane, outer space vehicle —it’s showing muscle. Presidential Candidates and those in the news are loud and vocal for sure, many over-react. Antagonistic complementaries abound. Now it’s more ‘passive aggressive,’ but then it will be ‘aggressive passive’ behavior in politics and world/country. In April, a tendency for aggressive, warlike, drum-beating, argumentative discursive speech, crazy crashes/accidents/mishaps/storms/quake. One will need to be more cautious and less incendiary. Many may have contradictory behavior and sudden reversals in behaviour considered both ‘good and bad’. Take care not to over-react. Lots of surprises and intense releases. Assertive urges to be right at any cost. Tendency to fight for one’s beliefs. Whew! Compassion and patience needed all month. Let hope new ways of peace and co-creative harmony prevails.

There is no religion higher than truth, no science deeper than love; no greater work between me and you than holding sacred each other’s heart and dream true for better futures. ~robert of mayflower

ASTROLOGY ASPECTS for March 2016 —

March 2nd into 4th Moon conjunct Saturn then Moon/Pluto casts an ominous authoritative serious poise, posture, and dull pallor on world events and personal striving, aim, choices, and work. Some are bored, others hard pressed. Sun in Pisces wants to psychically feel and intuit one’s way through the days and nights. Moon in Sagittarius/Capricorn wants control, exactness, good aim, far seeing, clear view, wishing too for better futures, better planning, traveling and landing with exactness, sureness. Feelings and intellect clash or challenge each other to grow in new ways.

“I got that we are all children of God, the problem is not enough adults! We need mature minds/hearts/souls to be co-creative with highest good, truth, beauty, the future, destiny, a healthy earth, all humanity. There are too many big babies and not enough mature adult moms and dads.” ~robert of mayflower

March 4th into 5th Mercury squares Mars, Mercury enters Pisces. Mars enters Sagittarius till end of May when Mars retrogrades back into Scorpio. Emotional squabbles or disagreements, frustrations, disputes, and contesting which later seem mistaken or thoughtlessly unwise in light of new insight and higher view attained. More compassionate and far-seeing view is needed to progress. A call for larger view and much needed right action to be taken to mend or progress aims and goals. A need or call for higher angels (virtues) to come to assist and aid. If in turmoil or confusion, simpler diet, exercise, yoga, meditation, hot slow sea salt bath will help settle down into more wise approach to matters. Light a candle in your soul and listen to the silence till a higher sense of things arises. Avoid flying off the handle and exaggerating circumstances.

March 6th Sun square Saturn along with Jupiter quincunx Uranus. Some are dead serious, others are ready to jump for new freedoms and joys. Some contract, disappear, leave, find more happiness when alone. A sense of repairing past, catching up, finding rest or solitude, retreat, meditative contemplation, wisdom arising through work and the process of time. Avoid hasty quick conclusions and false jump starts. Some need to try something new, wake up one’s mind and heartfelt values. A need for new ways of working but also a need for quality sureness in work performed; breakthroughs for some, breakdowns for others. Breathtaking for some, loss of breath for others. Possible major events this month that reshape the ever-changing future perspectives. Extremes in the weather (increased quake/volcano/storm/pollution continue to challenge world view. If confused, try reading Rudolf Steiner’s ‘Apocalypse’ lectures or his ‘Outline of Occult Science,’ or even yet Blavatsky’s ‘Isis Unveiled’ book written in late 1800s.

“Meditation is finding your peace with every other piece, finding your rest in the rest of the world, in every other without exception, as well as in silence, stillness; it is arising to the occasion when need be, holding the tension of opposites with a willingness to learn something new, something beyond oneself yet including this moment and every other. There is a space makes all time one meaningfulness. It includes all time in the moment, it is the mind of the heart. This thought rests in the heart. It is in the moment right before sleep, and right before awakening. It is in the space between looking in and out for yourself. It holds the tension between this life and all of your lives. It is the the moment before the sun rises or sets. Seated in the heart, look with your single eye; then let go of your breath and look again from the heart.” ~robert of mayflower

‘Heads can contest and differ, but hearts may remain the same in harmony, peace, unity. Brother and sister to all, heaven and earth unite and find peace in creative joyful hearts compassionate in truth.’ -Trebore Tau Bodhi

March 8th New Moon Solar Eclipse at 18 degree Pisces (influencing 5th to 14th). Also, Sun/Saturn on 6th and Sun/Jupiter on 8th precursive to Jupiter square Saturn on Lunar Full Moon Eclipse March 23rd, makes for bigger-than-life events to occur thru next few weeks. The sky is falling and the earth is shaking? Rising? One thing is for sure, if you take a good look around, in and about yourself, everything is changing and rearranging and rushing to change and new conclusions. Here it’s easy to be critical, difficult to cause real change unless forced into it. Wisdom and loving insight needed here for sure. Most obvious is everything needing fixing or updating. Not fun to see all that is wrong with life. Important to see what’s right and divine, the inner spirit of the times, the future. A need to see qualities, values, and virtues in each other. This month we clearly see what needs to be worked on and how far we have yet to go economically, politically, personally, spiritually, and practically. Long slow gradual patient work and achievement struggle with impatient need for immediate results; and, ‘I want it now’ mentality of immediate gratification. Collective consensus clashes with denying authority. With Jupiter retrograde in Virgo till May, there is much social unrest, unhappiness, unfulfilled promises or hopes, disquiet among family members, friends. Disputes and unhappiness with jobs and health issues, needs of elderly and young. Need for less negative criticism and more constructive insights, good work, and creative adventures. Many major events may take place now and in coming weeks that change the face of the future. Strange storms, earth changes, passings, and new arrivals.

An Eclipse often brings sudden cut offs and sharp changes, sudden rise or fall of power. Stormy weather and natural or man-made disaster more likely; but, on the other hand, higher consciousness makes miracles possible at this time, divine intervention, and high deeds of valor and virtue. There is freedom and a higher octave to all this astrology stuff. Yet true, people and situations may get eclipsed or cut off. Sudden rise or loss of power, position and status.Those with planets, Sun, Moon, Ascendent or Midheaven in mutable signs of Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius, Gemini and at mid degrees, are the most affected. A sense of urgency for change for the better. Later in month with Full Moon eclipse, early degree cardinal signs of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, Libra most affected for positive or negative changes. Change can be what we make it if we are intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually prepared. From the Spiritual point of view, our higher self neither waxes nor wanes, only gently guides and takes all in as higher learning. And yes, there are rare spiritual storms and lightening bolts thrown by Zeus. This month may be one of those stormy Zeus monster change times. Could just be good for movies and big talk, we’ll see. Our bodies and forms of expression wax and wane, rise and fall, and rise again to try again. Spirit is constant, as the north star. Our souls are forever learning, growing, grasping and then letting go, grasping again, looking again, growing no matter what. The soul is the mind stream continuum traveling between spirit and matter, this lifetime and many lifetimes; seeking to both attain freedom, truth, love and enlightenment. The Soul Spirit loves to share, shine, give and receive both experience, consciousness, and joy. Significant deaths and births, many feel reborn, renewed, this next few weeks. Notable personalities rise and fall, moan and groan, struggle and grow. A sense and need for spiritual and material concerns and matters to meet and agree, co-creatively work for greater results for self and other. These days, it’s hard to feel happy and fulfilled. It may take till the next Jupiter conjunct Saturn in 2020.

By 2020 we may attain 20/20 vision and be more prepared to enter the new age of Aquarius making adjustments and personal growth, learning, to make peace with ourselves and the world. A more prosperous time of peace may come then.

March 10th Moon conjunct Uranus brings sudden emotional shifts and readjustments, jolts and new awareness. For others, it’s emotional unsureness or disquieting news.

‘The truth of who we are doesn’t always fit the facts; it takes time to grow up, sometimes lifetimes.’ -Trebore Tau Bodhi

March 11th Mercury conjunct Neptune. A struggle to attain truth and manifest the ideal. A time to strive for future goals but not be fanatical nor perfectionist to critical fault and hardening cold bite. If confused, keep to the practical and down to earth. Need to discern false from true, what is fleeting and what is long-lasting. Past and future haunt and dislodge immediate present moments of importance and spiritual power. Good for creative imagining and lucid dreaming; good aspect for music, the arts, romancing, dancing through the storm and waves of life.

‘Never give yourself naked away, leave something up to the imagination and freedom of the other. Always invest in your own enlightenment and learning if you wish to invest in another’s. Whenever in doubt, try blunt truth and naked mind of acceptance.’ ~robert of mayflower

March 12 Venus enters Pisces. Love wants to melt, flow, make it easier for self and other. Time for simple play, music or art to mend one’s way through time. Romantic notions through this month into April. A wish to open closed doors, take down walls that separate or wage war. Urge for peace and intimacy with both friend and foe. Danger of naïve sentiment not based on reality. Yet also as sense of higher love, making magic and miracles of renewal and contact with spiritual self.

March 13th Moon in Gemini oppose Mars in Sagittarius, too much talk without real action. Too much rash hasty action without thought and wisdom foresight. A tendency to overdo it, over the top actions, brash words, rash frankness. Harsh contesting and excessive gamble, sport. Possible bravery but danger of injury or insult. Avoid unnecessary travel talk anger or over reacting, fighting, excessive debate. In effect next few days into Tuesday the 15th.

March 16th Jupiter trine Pluto. Major business deals, both behind the scenes and above table. Major political and corporate moves. Breakthroughs and breakdowns create new sense of empire building and solid state of affairs. Investments and divestments with long-term results. Powerful shift of direction for many. A sense of the winner, victory, resolution, practical yet socially festive agreeable solutions.Collective uprisings or joyous gatherings and collective consensus. Large social gatherings or vast mass agreement. Persuasive group dynamic or action. Sense of positive results in future undertakings. Negatively, a sense of ill gotten futures, fated inevitable turn of events. For the most part, this is a good aspect for mutual striving and working together toward higher achievement and goals. Earth signs, planets, houses of Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn grow inwardly and outwardly now toward positive good results and attainment.

March 20th Spring Equinox. Day and night, dark and light, equal length now as the Sun enters Aries. A sense of inner and outer heavenly earth harmony. Also, Venus conjunct Neptune brings love from higher places and sacred spheres, spaces. Spiritual dreams come into focus revealing secrets of the future of romance and money. Feelings and desire to call on the angel of the Higher Self. Wish or plans for travel, future voyage, business and romance. Now time to make plans, fall in love, make art, music, heavenly states become common matter here. Soul mating, platonic love, spiritual meetings, all possible these days. Great for studying spiritual esoteric metaphysical subjects. Flowers and poems, love letters and notes, go far here. Reach out and touch someone’s soul, magic can happen.

March 23 Full Moon Eclipse at 3 degrees in Libra, Jupiter square Saturn, Sun conjunct Mercury. Long-term goals meet immediate needs? Or is some tweaking and adjustment needed to continue in drive? Sense and need for co-creative partnership, meeting oneself and other halfway, need for peace and harmony with others, planning better futures working together rather than apart called for. Need for balance between social artistic spiritual activity and everyday necessities, practical work, bills, outer and inner needs, responsibilities. Sense of being wide awake and painfully aware of what needs to happen. A burning sense of responsibility. Frustration with wrong doors open and others wanted closed. Possible opportunities arising to clarify work in progress and goals to be achieved. New awarenesses bring clarity to future.

March 24th Mercury in Aries trine Mars in Sagittarius, impulse for creative thinking to take action. Genius quick thinking here needs to act appropriately and not over assertively. Avoid knee jerk reactions to others’ prods. Think for oneself, yet listen clearly and gently to what others trying to convey. Think smart, act wise. The bird flying high may go in straight lines, but the wise fertilizing river runs in curves, vortexing dance and laughter in wisdom’s only coming in due time. Cue: if debate or conversation increases in velocity without any smiles or laughter, one can be sure a wall or cliff is quick approaching.

March 25th Saturn goes retrograde till August in Sage Sagittarius, Venus opposes Jupiter, Venus square Saturn.Love wants others to be happy; compassion wants others to not suffer, and also to find happiness, wholeness. Greatest of all is the wish for others to find enlightenment, permanent peace, joy, co-creativity with all life. Freedom and truth needs universal love to protect it. Love and truth work together to birth higher consciousness. Responsiveness to this creates true responsibility for life. A great joy comes to those who know this heart and mind as mother and father of the child of enlightenment. Ok, that may be too esoteric for you or me. Saturn retrograde is need for long-term love wisdom manifested in practical workings for day-to-day results. Those acting on authority alone without self evident truth and compassion for all, lack long-term wisdom. Those acting with love alone without long-term wisdom fall short of sustaining action and true aim, goals. Smarts and love need be backed up by actions and wisdom of experience. Lack of wisdom may now suffer negative karmic result, doubt, confusion, obstruction, and need to further reflect, retreat, rethink, renew one’s inner spark and higher self devotion, universal love and respect for spiritual law and higher order of things. This Saturn retrograde aspect could be good for a return to oneself or to one’s roots. It can also indicate a need to see beyond oneself in such a way that one’s thinking and actions work for future lives, future times, for others to help or continue in work and art. Here love has both immediate and long term future results. A sense of knowing past and future here now and tomorrow.

March 26th Sun trine Mars, Venus sextile Pluto. Good energies for connecting up with others, intimate feelings/conversations, travel, decision making, conversing, or just staying home and fixing up things, renewing, catching up. With Moon in Scorpio all weekend here, sense of regenerating or degenerating, intensifying feelings and thought.

March 27th Easter Sunday. The Christian festival of Easter (Ishtar, Astarte, EA stir) is at the least, a festival culminating in all the ancient mystery school wisdom of death and rebirth, transcending and rising above the crashing waves and storms, ascension and transcendentalism, cosmic consciousness, and the return of the Christ in the etheric motif, mythos reality.

March 29th Moon conjunct Saturn, and Mercury trine Saturn. Good solid long-term clear thinking and action. Saying and doing what you mean. Letting others know what you think and what you need. Listening with heart, mind and ear to others clearly. A sense of being presented with facts, truth, reality, common sense, and/or what next to do to move ahead, have a garden, friends, and longer term sense of things. Coming to earth or practical reality.

March 30th Mercury square Pluto, a need to finish or complete mental projects, paper work. A sense of what and who pleases, or displeases. Need to get to the bottom of something, rid oneself of worry or fret over things one can’t fix. Need to accept what is necessary to learning and growing from. Good for research, revealing facts, or hiding away for a better day to come.

March 31st Mercury conjunct Uranus. Quick witted, smart and to the point. Genius flashes of insight vs. misfiring and misjudging in hasty short sighted disjointed fractures of reality. Good for letting go of self limitation and attempting to see beyond oneself. Great aspect for a new book from Mayflower Bookshop!
