Compassion without wisdom knowledge as well as common sense (day to day insight)
is a gardening by night alone in need of sunshine. Heads and hearts need meet! ~robert of mayflower

End of Sept all through October the last of a very rough year astrologically!

Sept. 23 into 29th! Differing views and too much to chew when Mercury square Saturn, and Mercury oppose Mars. Grid lock and major control freaking or depressing natures on 25th when Moon triggers Pluto/Saturn/Mercury/Mars; followed by Sept 29th MARS RETROGRADE SQUARE SATURN. Makes for a tough week (or two) of rough news, extremes in weather and emotions, economics, dirty fighting, and getting a handle of what’s real and what’s fear and greed manipulations. Here too, a renewed need for law and order of a higher order of wisdom truth compassion with teeth; as well as practical peace of mind. Danger of the past overwhelming clarity of present tense as well as clear view of the future. Seems like many obsessed about what’s wrong with life, rather than living what’s right to do, duty and dharma. Need to prove God or Higher Self by the way we live, not just words, by the way we live the good, true, beautiful. Why does everything seem like its going backwards or retarded in growth. Why no higher truths and wisdom, higher callings of Love to arrest our divisive leanings? December’s Jupiter Saturn in Aquarius may well open the door for higher love and truth to prevail! Positive side of Saturn is yoga and meditation, more peaceful garden of soul. Higher octave of Mars is courage of virtue, mantra and virtuous actions brave for truth. Pluto is plutocrats and negative emotion but on higher side, its compassionate selfless support and power of ‘the mother’. Honest learning of what is duty dharma virtuous actions right for all, holy towards all, the most good for the many, sharing what one has to better, enlighten, uplift the spirit soul mind heart.

“People’s concepts are terribly dependent upon the outer physical environment, and they must be dissolved by what spiritual science can stream out into humanity.” – Rudolf Steiner, ‘The Karma of Materialism’.

October 1st 5:05 pm est, Full Moon in Aries. A sense of peaking out with how far one can carry their impulse, desire, or fear. A sense of wanting a new beginning or fresh start.

“it is well to remember that in the last analysis, there is nothing else in the universe besides consciousness … thus being in various states of consciousness simultaneously is the only reality in the world.” ~ Rudolf Steiner, from ‘The Fifth Gospel

October 9th Mars retrograde square Pluto makes for the roughest times (influencing Oct. 7th thru 16th or 18th). At this time, a great need of patience, compassion, taking one’s time to find right solutions or way to go. Lots of accusations and plenty of dirty tricks, tough news/facts/events, and wrong behavior make this time rough to get through. The weather won’t help things. Good time for renewing efforts, fixing up things, helping others if you can. Pluto makes for regeneration or degeneration, so lighten up on any habits you might have that weaken your good nature. In Jungian psychology, the ‘demon lover’ is all those things you do that are hindering or hurting you. Banishing wrong habits may be especially good at this time. Going to extremes at this time may prove ill in effect. This time period could also prove to be a very rough time for the stock markets.

October 16th New Moon in Libra. Sense of renewed efforts to find balance, fairness, co-creativity, harmony, and sureness in an ever changing wheel of fortune. Stillness mediation helps find sure ground to stand, walk, think and speak from. October 31st Full Moon on Halloween in Taurus with Sun oppose Uranus. Perhaps one of the most zany crazy Halloweens ever experienced in your life time is about to occur. (And nobody seems to be taking off their mask of fear and desire and freak out!). Extra crazy day of shake ups and changed plans. Dangerous few3 days here for taking risk, or over reacting, pushing too hard. Crazy sudden events or changes, storms or exchanges shift reality once again. Sudden fall (or sudden risings) of people and events. On the other hand at higher octave level, sudden realizations, truths and facts emerge to shift perceptions and directions. Fixed signs affected the most. Water signs and earth signs have opportunities to awaken and see clearer as to the way to go for happiness and prosperity. Fire signs need act out of harmony and creativity, and not anger or one up man-ship. Air signs need to not work alone but with others who agree or not, are creatively bound in sharing and caring for us all.

November 3rd Election day, Mercury goes direct from retrograde 12:50 pm making for complete zany craziness and multitudinously confusing information about ‘what is happening’. Many a new realization, a sudden shift in outcome or plans. Mercury in Libra wants fairness and co-equality in rights, service, surrender, heart and mind. Since neither candidate for President seems to have clear cut good aspects, and both have difficult astrology as well as few good aspects; this looks to be a most confusing if not disturbing election and year to come!

“One needs clairvoyant skills to discover spiritual scientific truths, but one doesn’t need them to live with these truths; for this one only needs a healthy understanding of what is presented.” -Rudolf Steiner, dec.7,1922

Hope this is helpful in your finding a sense of timing and planetary heavenly alignment, harmony tween heaven and earth events,

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. 21 Mars trine Uranus. Solving problems, arousing strong energy to succeed. Strong forward motion, getting things done, progress. Strong rise in new leadership or stepping up to captain direction. Time to try new thinks and things to grow in new ways.

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. Deep feelings here but need to not take things too seriously or personally feeling hurt. Feel heart, compassionate universal heart instead. A search for deeper meaning and lasting values, friendships.

March 3rd Venus square Saturn brings deeper union or cold chill to love and matters surrounding love, such as money and equities. Need for security in long term goals. A looking within self for lasting virtuous creative qualities in the other.

March 7-8-9 Sun conjunct Neptune and SuperMoon full moon in virgo 19 degrees. Its a BIG WEEKEND full of lost in space, highly imaginative adventure, lost for some, found and refounded for others. Avoid confusing crazys, liars and just talk. Good for travel, plans, play. music and the arts, platonic spiritual connections, high romance, Grail. Venus conjuncts Uranus in Taurus   March 8th bringing interestingly creative vicissitudes to both love/romance and equity markets/stock markets. higher love and art clash with mere escapism and numbing out.

March 23-24 Mars conjunct Pluto, New Moon in Aries 4 degrees. Violence and mad men, or heroes and redeemers, saviors of heart and soul. Good for research, in depth study, finalizing, completing. Avoid taking things too personally. Avoid martyrs. Look for in depth honest workings. Opportunity now for sure for ALCHEMY and transmutation of negatives into positives. Good time to quit wrong habits. Good time for new beginnings based on higher motivation and spiritually awakening activities of heart and soul. Good time to garden friends and wisdom knowledge.
