The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers & cities; but to know someone who thinks & feels with us, & who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.

~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

the Astrological Overview~~~

There is no past we can bring back by longing for it.

There is only an eternal now

that builds and creates out of the past

something new and better.

~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Tragedy is a tool for the living to gain wisdom,

not a guide by which to live.

~Robert Kennedy (i guy a met and shaked hands with,

shared eyes and a few words with; i will never be the same.)

With the recent Jupiter retrograde trine Neptune, the big picture is in view but not totally manifesting, quirks in friends and relatives disrupt the beautific dream. Irrational exuberance? If everything is so perfect why aren’t you happy? Water signs (Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer) dreaming out, leaping for heaven, some make big splash, others splashed with cold water waking em up. Jupiter/Neptune aspects can be too idealistic or lazy, wishing to play not work, wanting something for nothing and trips for free. Oil prices and Movies experiencing extreme highs and lows (Jupiter/Neptune), as well as Euros up and down, Bitcoin too; lots of roller coaster rides going in circles? . Jupiter/Neptune aspects can be expressive of very idealistic dreamy magical love, relationship, marriage; but due to Jupiter retrograde in Scorpio, there may be a conflict of desire and mutually aligned futures. It certainly doesn’t help Jupiter’s expansive joyous outgoings and Neptunes dreamboat fantasies, to have Saturn/Pluto midpoint at Jupiter/Neptune’s midpoint; holy ‘cowabunga’ and carelessness with the big love holds us all? This could also be related to Supreme Court in USA overturning national gambling ban opening up the door to legalized gambling everywhere and more poor humans losing money while a very few win. Worries about money matters, health, separations due to sickness or wrong ideas, possible small beginnings for big returns, or big adventures with little return. S/P (saturn/pluto) demands reality from J/N (jupiter/neptune) big dreams and holy smoke, legalizing marijuana pushes forward. J/N requests and quests for fun and joy, creativity escapism and/or bit of heaven. If S/P demands hard work too much cold reality may dampen party. With Mars recent involvement, some very pushing for their agenda. April/May, the beautiful outer appearance and hot dream is cooling off with a more real picture appearing as how to get from here to there and what work needs to be done emerges. None-the-less, Love aspects nearly override all negatives come early June. Come July double eclipse and Aug.1st return of Mars square Uranus (again Sept. 18th), many a buckaroo wild horse ride ahead. Mars is outspokenness and brave action, strong thrusts forward, but Uranus demands high truth and accurate higher octave motivation and technique …., or things tend to back fire, suddenly twist and turn, return, or crash and burn, reverse or get maddeningly feisty competitive argumentative. Here patient good work and honesty for the good of all eventually prevails. Premature action or hasty quick knee jerk reactions backfire or waylay. Early fixed signs of Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius feel the heat or are applying the heat to quicken the pace or cut out, part, separate.

Do not be afraid of your difficulties.Do not wish you could be in other circumstances than you are. For when you have made the best of an adversity, it becomes the stepping stone to a splendid opportunity.

~H.P.Blavatsky

Love and Hate make you immortal, choose love.

-my memory of Gelek Rinpoche comment.

Choosing is the active ingredient.

Saturn retrograde trine Uranus, in the air brings more harmonious big changes but not all the pieces of the puzzle fit the form of the day to day or practical necessities life demands perhaps. Its kind of a Bob Seger song lyric, “You just can’t have it all” and it doesn’t all fit in the car anyway. Saturn wants security and predictability, Uranus wants progressive change and forward motion, progress. Here earth signs Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo are favored when making realistic earthy plans practical and long term secure, yet progressive. Patience is key to see this creative process through into end of year.

You will not be good teachers if you focus only on what you do and not upon who you are.”

― Rudolf Steiner

If you are willing to learn, anything could happen! ~Plato

Where there is learning, there is freedom; where there is freedom, there is learning. Ultimately there is no learning, no real schooling without the study and listening to the cycles of nature and her seasons of work and play, rest and renewal. That there is an inner and outer nature, and a stillness beyond yet holding it all, is imperative. Without a trinity, all is lost. Call it everything, nothing, and a mind; religion, philosophy, and science; Spirit, matter, mind; call it love, truth, and a will to still go on no matter; there is a trinity ~ you, me, and the holy space around and in-between , if you know what i mean and what is yet to be explored and dreamed into new worlds.

~robert of mayflower

Mars in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus throws strong holistic healing message out, but also increased time of aggression, violence, hurtful painful ways of interacting. Yet Genius can also be at play, and for some a quickening of higher intelligence, creativity, and freedom. Here the way or means is the end result too. Some throw a strong ultimatum , ’Play by these rules or the game is over and all the toys will be removed’. Mars is desire or force, externalization of will, hopefully an Aquarian ideal of equality, freedom, happiness, and what is good for everybody, is at play.

Square to Uranus, Mars gives sense of urgency, now or never. Mars/Uranus can be violence as in crashes/shootings/harsh words or actions causing strong reactions (such is in news daily). Mars/Uranus is also lightening or storm (as in UK and France), wanting to throw things out, or wanting new but unable to process or compost old. Mars/Uranus can be moments of genius words and action, but it can also be momentary chaos and negative criticism or mean hearted action. On a positive note, Mars is Michaelic Courage, ArcAngel daring, and Manjushri cut through it all wisdom. Yet remember Bobby Kennedy’s words, “Progress is a nice word. But change is its motivator. And change has its enemies.”

In order to approach theosophy, steiner, blavatsky, plotinus, manly hall, magic, tibetan buddhism, macrobiotics, yoga, meditation, diet and health, mindfulness and dharma, with full cognition and ultimate possibility, it is necessary to fully attune your soul mind spirit totally to such truth and ultimate love. Don’t fool yourself, invest wisely and 100%, some vehicles to life are worth every penny of time.

-robert of mayflower, ‘Where Steiner meets theosophy, buddha, and Gelek.

And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon, the ‘Lord of Phosphorus,’ and Lucifer, or ‘Light-Bearer,’ is in us: it is our Mind. ~HPB.

ps.

Freedom demands we transform negativity and separateness, composting negativity and separateness into a sense that the whole world is really one big garden. Learning to garden in the spirit soul to soul is the whole secret of transforming, composting, evil into goodness, friendship, peace for the world. Heaven and Hell at the same time and place, space and moment; its the purity of the mind that chooses one or the other. Train the mind in virtue, theosophy and anthroposophy, buddhism and Osho good start! ~rt

“Life is a short spell; but love is an infinite well,

an eternal star, an ever setting sun heart in heart.”

~Trebore Tau Bodhi

Sun/Saturn conjunction last winter solstice dec 20th 2017 giving early warning shots of coming Saturn Pluto conjunction 2020, along with sense of need to control, especially if others are not in control. Extremes in weather and behaviour. Security and freedom, rootedness and sure growth, short term and long run with at odds or learn to work and play together. Cardinal Signs Capricorn, Aries, Cancer, Libra need be strong and self willed for desired goals and long term investment of self, time, money; yet also need to be flexible and more fun loving. All play and no work has no future, all work and no play has no present.

“The time has come to realize that supersensible knowledge has now to arise from the materialistic grave.”

― Rudolf Steiner

Currently, Chiron went into Aries, Uranus into Taurus, Mars into Aquarius.

Everything is trying to be new or renewed, unique in appearance and genuinely individualized, novel and marvelously brash and fabulously fashionable. On the other hand the Saturn/Pluto wants something old and classic, something old fashion romantic and terribly practical, rustic, antiquitous, and wise or prudent. Bit of a clash.

Yet early June Venus trines jupiter/neptune, but also Venus opposes Pluto, then Sun square Neptune. With Neptune these days in rough square to Jupiter/Saturn midpoint, there is an attempt of materialize spiritual and highly idealistic even futuristic ideals of happiness, versus wanting to escape, jump into fantasy, over feel everything and take it too personally. Also danger of delusional or illusive thinking and feeling getting in the way of true aims and workings. Things for such mutable sights may get lost in the shuffle of dreams. fantasies. unfulfilled or unrealistic goals or needs. With Jupiter now making what many consider good aspects, ponder that Jupiter is now square to the Pluto/Neptune midpoint indicating possible great gains for some, great losses for others, or a price to pay for misuse of resources, self, or other. Also an indication that personal pleasures and joys that don’t embrace a World Conception attempting to hold us all, a future that doesn’t ethically embrace world realities and a big picture holding all the planets long term interest, is doomed to fail in some collective or personal way. Earth Changes and destruction of nature need be further researched and assessed in light of Spiritual Science. The loss of the honey bee due to pesticides and mono cropping is another need to be looked into deeply for solution. Such aspects are indicative of how many people are losing their old or outworn social identity and are presently seeking new or renewed ways to relate to the greater world around them as well as deeper wiser inner stillness of self.

The exercise of magical power is the exercise of natural powers, but superior to the ordinary functions of Nature. A miracle is not a violation of the laws of Nature, except for ignorant people. Magic is but a science, a profound knowledge of the Occult forces in Nature, and of the laws governing the visible or the invisible world. Spiritualism in the hands of an adept becomes Magic, for he is learned in the art of blending together the laws of the Universe, without breaking any of them and thereby violating Nature. ~H.P.Blavatsky

Only those who dare to fall greatly can ever achieve greatly.

~Robert Kennedy.

Dark Moon Lilith in Capricorn (control and conquer, think long term or is this short contract, law and love/sex, rules maintained or broken and sub sequential karma) conjunct Pluto April/May, along with Dark Moon Lilith conjunct Jupiter/Neptune midpoint may have thrown many into insatiable crazy love, as well as crazy possessiveness, obsessiveness, dark star adventure with many a kink to be ironed out; Many still feeling it in June. Come end of first week in August Dark Moon Lilith enters experimental and novel try anything once or twice Aquarius. Come late August into September, look out, Aquarian Dark Moon Lilith square retrograde Uranus! May reveal how much we all need to rethink love and sex, marriage and relations; may need a completely new vision and voice and plan that will stop the abusive man club cave and re-envision what new ways of seeing love and sex so so many aren’t continuing to break the rules yet demand others to obey!?! Much freedom of expression and cutting edge creative new fashion, music, the arts, as well as an anything goes attitude. Here ‘Intelligence is the ultimate aphrodisiac and venusian persuation’ if you will. Take care to look out for the thoughtless fling and exotic tattoo on your mind soul. Also here comes the sex dolls, more crazy mad love escapades, TV and Movie Love Fools available for mass indulgence and psychological emotional dismemberment and dare devil fool heartedness, unruly off the wall antiques as well as strong scrutiny and moral critique. For many, its freedom from the known and an adventure into higher minded full heartedness.

Art, reappearing color and soul, is eternal. We can love a thousand times more, don’t be attached to the form it takes; keep the whole world in mind, but mind the moment you are in. Here flowers dream.

~robert of mayflower

First Lady Melania , the President’s wife’s hospitalization may give indication of her having an 8 degree Capricorn Moon, with Saturn there expect a long slow recovery, and/or some serious rethink of feelings and commitment. Also may indicate she has a late Gemini or early Cancer Rising Sign Ascendent or Rising Sign. If this true, then Melania has Aries midheaven with Chiron conjunct it with her own aim to be a maverick unique individual. With Saturn conjunct her Moon in June she is laying way back and long term planning. She has very good aspects in coming years making for a most unique and creative individual attaining much personal success and happiness. At the moment she is most likely totally transforming inside out and deepening her mind stream with ennobling higher virtue prayers. Saturn is slow but sure here i think. With Uranus transit heading for her natal Sun next summer but closing in now, she may be about to ascend to higher levels of consciousness, learn to do anything she puts her mind too, and may well become a super hero. At the moment the wisdom that can only come through time and suffering on this planet are awakening a new selfless wisdom, world wisdom and bottom line. Big decisions are being chewed on and new wisdoms are at hand (Saturn), as well as need for patience, perseverance, and endearing endurance. Uranus is freedom and higher intelligence, and bringing it up to the next higher level, Saturn at the moment is sit back and be still to know. Any unsureness or uncertainty will need time to make sure. Blessings of healing, wholeness, all that is good to Melania, First Lady.

Home and Housing prices seem to be rising twice what wages and inflation are covering. Oopps ….another dumb bubble to drop punt and pop next summer if not before. Gosh, when we gonna get clean air, water, education for children, love and truth is greater than power guns, money, and ego. Yea, those things smart cool, but without love and compassion for all earth ~ dumb gets dumber.

Saturn Rx. transit squaring UK Ascendent at 7 Libra. Neptune/Pluto midpoint conjunct UK Venus, while Venus opposing UK Saturn then goes on to oppose Pluto. Not a lot of love going on there these days. Increasing violence and split identity , karma, catching up there. Ego and criticism without right alternative view and solution leading to cold wars and rejection, anger, and lack of compassion.

Hawaii Anyone? Lots of quakes and volcanoes waking up these daze. Hi Good By Hawaii? Well, if you look at the horoscope of Ka’Iulani, Princess of Hawaii, who mysteriously got thrown out , and died in late 1880’s when Theosophy and Steiner arose; you may get some insight into Goddess Revenge. Jupiter the planet of fun and overriding others for one’s own fun or social life, truth, music, and muse; is conjunct now the Princess of Hawaii’s Dark Moon Lilith. Also Uranus sudden eruption and revolution, is now conjunct her Neptune at 1 degree Taurus. Holy yikes and holy smoke. Volcanoes purify the upper airs, just like fights, war, violence wipe out lower airs; none of it is exactly enlightened, but from an esoteric point of view; unless we find higher peace and love, compassion and truth within us to stop wars; life keeps teaching us the hard way. Uranus transit now is also opposing her Venus; Hawaii needs to find a new way to love! Four five years and ears down the road, when Uranus in sky conjuncts her Moon/Pluto conjunct at 22-23 Taurus, a whole new Hawaii be happening. Pluto now in 4-5 years coming to conjunct her Mars may be giving ill omens to happiness and joy living in them parts.

As for Hawaii chart as a state, the astrological starry insights give this; Neptune transit in sky is square to Hawaii’s Venus for awhile, Love now needs lots of truth and reality and no false escapism into luciferic wonderlands. Ok, that was a bit too Steiner like. Nep square Venus is only higher love works now, everything else is melting in fire and false dreams, or whatever it is beyond this. Still esoteric, i know. Neptune is a response to pollution, the voice of the Great Mother, the Dream real or not real, revealed. Uranus in the sky is about to trine Hawaii natal Pluto….., freedom through higher truths is at hand. New ways to transcend dumb psycho drama is at hand. Tough road, i agree. Pluto transit nearing bottom of the chart indicates Hawaii is bottoming out and in coming year or two going deeper than ever into death and rebirth, compassion love tolerance helpfulness to neighbors, to rising from suffering into new lands, new futures, renewed faith in the heart and mind, soul and spirit of life. May peace and love win both land and sky, friend and foe, into mutual creativity holds us all whole and holy.

He is happiest, be he king or peasant, who finds peace in his home.

——Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Detroit –

In looking at Detroit’s Astrology Chart of July 23, 1701, 4:51pm when Cadillac founded city, Detroit has a 0 Leo Sun with Mars at nearly 28 Cancer. Well, recently Mars transit as well as Uranus squared and opposed Detroit’s Sun and Mars. The Mayor, and others, recently spoke of Detroit being the most violent city in the USA and school children having the lost scores of intelligence in USA. With Neptune transit squaring Detroit’s Moon at 15 Pisces, it doesn’t fair well in the future when all the before mentioned aspects, due to retrograde motion, return in august through early november 2018. In March and June 2020, Saturn will oppose Detroit’s Sun; then good tough rules will come into play as well as beginnings of bottom up structure supporting home, family, education, dealing with pollution problems. Jupiter and Saturn together in conjunction will oppose Detroit Sun by exact degree in December 2020. Then on look for Detroit to for real become world class city bottoms up, top down. In feb/March, and May/June, and Oct. 2019, Jupiter conjuncts Detroit’s Ascending/Rising Sign making for much hoopla and monies thrown around for many a project and wild speculation, much happiness due to greater sense of leadership and spiritual uplifting events, positive sense of brotherliness and sisterhood, community and family, all as friends. But it really takes till 2020 to lock into long term for sure success, health, and wealth for the city of detroit. That’s my prediction. Detroit’s Sagittarius rising gives it that blunt frank up front honest approach. Leo Sun a zero degrees gives us lots of amateur egos. Mars/Uranus in Cancer the guns, anger, aggressive, purple gang mentality, but also the fight for freedom and justice and a higher more virtuous way to go. Jupiter/Moon/Saturn in Pisces gives us that psychic intuitive, home family friends good work wish and dream that is time will occur again and again till we get it right. Midheaven in Libra is goal of equality and relationship to all life. Venus conjunct Pluto node in Leo makes for the gambling, strip clubs, undercover night life, erotic, and secretive stuff. Up side of that is a search for love that transcends death and fear. A search for love as higher identity; also the redemption of the dark feminine. See the books, ‘Running with the Wolves’, ‘The Sacred Prostitute’, ‘The Pregnant Virgin’, Marion Woodman Books. Also see ‘The King Warrior Magician Lover’. The Voice of the Silence can be helpful here too, its by Blavatsky. Detroit’s Dark Moon Lilith conjunct Neptune in Aries is another story in itself, but we’d have to go back to Plum Street, the Grande Ballroom, Monteith College at Wayne State, and when Belle Isle and the Detroit River were mystic magical divine centers. Whew! It has to do with the sensuous first one’s out of the box, the early wild music scenes and riots for higher reason and rhyme, love and truth. Detroit needs more of this archetypal wild woman, Artemis, Persephone, Ishtar and more!

There are two things

children should get from their parents:

roots and wings.

Astrology News for June from Robert of Mayflower~~~

Love starts when we push aside our ego and make room for someone else, perhaps a person we could have never dreamed nor ever were.

-robert of mayflower, ‘Where Steiner meets Osho.’

June 1st-2nd-3rd Mercury trine Mars in air signs signifying meeting and agreeing of minds, contracts, plans, good notions, accurate observations. Also Venus trine Jupiter, and Venus trine Neptune in water signs all in grand trine makes for beautiful love imaginations and fantasies or futures . Great days for creative play, writing, communicating, making friends, healing old scenarios and suffering patterns, envisioning and planning one’s highest self, goals,greatest adventure; time to be the love and truth you want to see in the world. Sense of fulfilling one’s destiny or linking up to good, true, beautiful. If one has their feet practically on the ground this can be a most enlivening and flowering time for love, friends, family, mother nature, mothering and being mothered. Certainly a great time for yoga, mediation, attuning the the highest principles of truth, life, love, compassion, and virtue mind. Dumb sucker or dreaming into better futures? Hard to tell eh? Trust no one but yourself? Be still to know.

June 5th Sun conjunct Mercury in Gemini reveals things needing real honest assessing and evaluating, Venus in Cancer oppose Pluto in Capricorn puts some high flyers and false dreamers in quick checkmate. Such aspect brings out the crazy emotions, jealousy, anger, negative emotions, a sense of let down or being caught in the past, or some negative pattern. Gamblers beware of being set up to lose if not practical in projections and dreams. A wake up call for many. Difficult aspect for addicts (of anything), bad shoppers, mad lovers obsessed and kinky, weird control freaks, and lack of security. Love can go south here. Feelings of loss or rejection abound. Secrets get revealed. All isn’t what it was made out to be. On positive note, sense of protecting valuables, honor, home, little ones; a sense of depth and commitment, hopefully not making one feel stuck or tied down, depressed or negative. Good aspect for cleaning, fixing up, repairing, restoring, renewing sense of compassion for all who suffer and a selfless willingness to keep learning till one can help the world round find more loving peace and co-creative freedom. For some a sense of ending, completion, death. For others birth, loving anew, pulling weeds, cleaning, making sacred again the space for good things to happen.

“Feelings are for the soul what food is for the body.”

-attributed to Steiner

June 6 Mercury square Neptune. Emotions may fall short of logic. Tell the truth, but better yet, live it. Assume you can’t wait for the other to make you happy, be the love you are looking for. Dream but be practical. Some may be hiding something, others exposing. Creative imagination needs outlet. Avoid distractions to main goal to achieve. Read the fine print, avoid gambles or taking unwarranted chance. Perhaps good for artistic or future planning if one is patient. Need to stay present and not let past and/or future lure you out of ‘be here now’ take a good look. Work present for better future. This leads into next day with more false news, fake news, false projections, lies or deceit. Or is it artistic wish to divine the divine and change the future from road presently on? Many sudden shifts in plans. Strange dreams and psychic persuation abounds. Trust nothing you see, half of what you feel, and all that is here now rather than in past or future. Demonizing anyone other than our own ‘habit’ we wear, our own seeing feeding nourishing separateness/shame/blame, is foolish at best, victimizing of self and other at worse. Vanquish demons by calm abiding space equanimity and gardening. Plants won’t lie to you.

*Recent Pluto opposing USA SUN in CANCER Mom Sign? American women birth rate for children at the lowest rate on record, the number of babies born in the U.S.A. last year dropped to a 30-year low. -see “Births Hit Lowest Number Since 1987,” Wall Street Journal, May 17, 2018. Or is it Neptune transit squaring Mars/Uranus midpoint heading for square to Mars while opposing Neptune and midheaven in Virgo, Men becoming impotent. Good at war though eh? Where the Gardeners! USA Pluto return late Capricorn in second house portends of need to return to what really matters, rather than dreaming out into getting richer and richer, higher and higher, and never stopping to grow the roses, forget smelling em, grow em; save the bees, get the beeswax out of your ears and into the soil!

Always write a poem a day,

people will think you crazy

and leave you alone

with Plato,

Hermès, and Athena.

If that’s not enough

To have a party,

Nothing will work.

~robert of mayflower

June 7th Sun square Neptune, Read June 6th leading into this. Neptune can be weird storms, volcanoes, floods, or delusions and false dreams. Good to know if you are dreaming. One can fantasize but know you are. Often with such aspects last few days, media and news full of misleading facts, propaganda, lies, or bizarre craziness to distract real news and hard facts. Good for the muse, music, spiritual insights, flowers, art, poetics, dreamy idealistic romance. If inspired, one is a whirlwind of inspiration; otherwise, little work gets done, feelings of being spacey or out of it, danger of food spoilage, temptation to play hooky. Mystical feelings of union and communion or opposite, loss of common sense and rational mind? Psychic insights are to be had, but keep your common sense.

Mars conjunction South Node at this time adds to the mix with strong unconscious drives for relationship based on physical needs, or sex; while other relations otherworldly and spiritual, but not practical nor incarnated, dreamy too dreaming to come true. Some quarrel and force issue coming across egotistical or selfish. Positive expression is a release of superior force and bravado for purpose of helping self and others to progress pure and simple. A middle way works, tibetan buddhist like. Osho’s Book of Secrets could work, but who is daring enough to live that life, most use spiritual secrets to get their desires fulfilled then take off. Damn. Where are the good guys gals when you need em?! May Truth and stillness listening conquer our distractions, may dharma capture our imagination to matter day to day, life to life, until all the world is divining the divine in each other (rather than projecting at others and demonizing impotent to help awaken, heal or nourish becoming being peace).

You have neither friends nor enemies, you only have teachers. Some show you what to do and you will learn to be like them. Some show you what not to do, or you will end up like them. Keep learning, keep open, then miracles can happen. All miracles spark from a willingness to keep learning. Selflessness and openness to learn is real magic, miracle. -robert of mayflower

The Eternal Feminine leads us forever ON! -Goethe

June 8th Venus oppose Dark Moon Lilith. Get ready, this is a wild one, good and bad. Intense spiritual meetings, redemption of extremes in finding balance, heart of the middle way. Old wisdom meets eternal puer, angels of destiny and redemption. On the other hand some pretty lusty feelings and emotions play with the eternal and temporal elements meeting at this time. In May Dark Moon Lilith in sky made a conjunction with Pluto triggering the wild woman archetype to get wilder and wilder in woman and man. This can be good or bad. Some feel betrayed, others waylaid; some feel empowered but without higher love and truth, enjoy the hour. Yet this can be a putting the separate self, the ego betrays the Higher Self, the Christos, Hermes, Christ, in check. We need divine check mates. Check out the news for how many instinctive astral urges are now in trouble for speech or action, and how many still try to ‘take it to the limit, one more time’ as the music band the Eagles once sang. This May aspect triggered many to attempt to find the most sensuous thing and disappear ‘Lucy in the sky’ like, melt down. Others Volcanic exploded. Ok, if this doesn’t make sense, try this; many are desperate for love or desire or wanted goal and are ready to run over anyone and everyone who gets in the way. That better. Still others, are divining the divine juicy sensual holy in every moment and every person. Some are prisoners of their dream, and others are freed in it. Takes a bit of time to see who is who and what is what; but come June 8th, and the week after, we will see who’s boat is seaworthy. Venus opposing Dark Moon Lilith is not good for grand standing but can be a very good aspect for learning to love differences, learning to shine truth and love and let go of attachment to results, as the Bhagavad Gita teaches (see William Q. Judge edition). The 20-21st of July the Sun opposes Dark Moon Lilith. Look for the strong rise of women to power, while other women quick fall from power. Such aspects have an auric envelop of influence days or even week or two before and/or after. Very strong love urges prevalent, urge to matter, to spirit. Strong need for Dharma mind and perhaps NeoPlatonic thought to see the way through clear and bright in Sophia the Goddess’s Holy Light!

August 10th and 11th Mars in Aquarius going retrograde conjuncts Dark Moon Lilith, Whew! Tarzan now a wall street broker meets Jane now a wild woman from “She would never say, where she came from; yesterday don’t matter, if its gone”, the return of Artemis and the Voice of the Goddess? Conflicting times if you don’t have a good road map (right books from Mayflower Bookshop on Virtue Mind Training and the new Mystery Schools of Love and Truth awakening voice and mind of the Heart of Hearts!).

Let Artemis, Athena, Diana, Dionysus and Orpheus sing in your heart to fulfill your destiny and graduation thesis, read the curving inundating rhythms of the seasons/month/evening and circling stars for your master thesis; then again, just play the instrument.

June 13 New Moon 22 Gemini, brings sense of diversity and diverse expressions or opportunities galore next few weeks. Lots of things to do, try to catch up to unfinished so to get everything done or complete at both home and work so to be free in days to come.

There is no meaning to life, we make it meaningful; or not.

Be the love, the truth, you waiting for. Be it, listen, nourish only the eternal in each other. ~rt

June 14th, Venus square Uranus; creative sparks, a new reaching out, wanting to quicken things up. For some, upsets in feelings or love, or is it new insights and shifts of how to appreciate or care for friends and loved ones? Mid June has Mars conjunct Jupiter/Uranus midpoint, can be very lucky or unlucky in love and money, depending on what other transits one has in their chart. Possible peaceful change for the better. For coming 7 days many attempts to mend the fence, make peace, reconciliations, novel new ways of relating and connecting.

If we never believe in ourselves in deeply rooted feelings there is something higher than ourselves, we will never find strength to evolve into something higher. If we never believe in others in deeper yet feelings that there is something deeper than our self, we will never find the truth there is something deeper than self holds, nourishes, weathers all of us; and we are each and all, all of us. Wake up in your dream and see. -robert of mayflower, ‘Where Steiner meets Osho and Hermetics Neoplatonic’.

Weird fact ~ Virginity restoring surgical operations at all time high, also birth rate at a low. Junk sex and junk food at all time high. Guardian newspaper says one out of ten websites has something kinky or porn on it. Now making and selling sex robots and toys. Where the romance of the soul, the higher self? There are sex classes but where are the love classes, the higher octave spiritual love?

June 21 Venus in Leo oppose Mars in Aquarius during Summer Solstice. For better and/or worse, confrontations, strong polarities in sex and love, friendship and family, ego and egoless. To re-establish or to feel separated from. Some shine, others get a shiner. Lovers fight argue, conflict or oppose, possible mishaps, accidents, rudeness or overly strong vs over sensitive hurt. Some behave like dogs and cats, others have a wild but good good time. Separateness ego desire or want/need may clash with sense of greater whole, family or community. Freedom vs security/control irritate or make edgy the auric field and day. Lots of energy if one knows how to use it. Good to know what you don’t want avoiding unnecessary hassles. Drive safe and slow, avoid road rage or arguments going nowhere fast.

The ultimate secret of lovers is that someone has to surrender, or is it someone has to spark? But surrender to what? The eternal highest truth, the deepest rootless root, stillness distilling every experience into elixir of enlightenment? Sparking what? A song invokes the land under our feet, our distant and close neighbors to meet? A weaving of every truth and love this planet ever felt into a rosary mala of love frees the song in our heart? At best we have half truths (hermetic means half revealed half concealed), till the other gets it. Sometimes we are ‘the other’. Don’t be an alien, love the earth.

There are people in every time and every land who want to stop history in its tracks. They fear the future, mistrust the present, and invoke the security of a comfortable past which, in fact, never existed.

-Robert Kennedy

“It takes courage…to endure the sharp pains of self discovery rather than choose to take the dull pain of unconsciousness that would last the rest of our lives.” ~Marianne Williamson

June 23 Mercury oppose Pluto makes for difficult communication unless much wisdom hindsight and compassionate loving kindness in play. Facilitate lasting wisdom, gain insight from the past not to repeat it. Plant seeds and support one another’s higher self or wholeness journey. Avoid getting stuck on details and derailing from the track. This may be tough travel or communication day for some. For others deeper insights and further research prosper. Secret and opposing views warp the field of space.

“Wherever you’ve been, and whatever you’ve done so far, your entire life was building up to this moment. Now is the time to burst forth into your greatness, a greatness you could never have achieved without going through exactly the things you’ve gone.” ~Marianne Williamson

Love is higher than opinion. If people love one another the most varied opinions can be reconciled – thus one of the most important tasks for humankind today and in the future is that we should learn to live together and understand one another. If this human fellowship is not achieved, all talk of development is empty. -Rudolf Steiner

June 25th Venus square Jupiter. Love abounds, take care not to over do it. Watch needless expenditure, yet some things are worth shooting for, freedom of space, giving space,feeling both earth and star!

There is nothing worse than aggressive stupidity.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

June 26th Mars goes retrograde until August 27th, from 9 Aquarius to 28 Capricorn. The desire for the new freedoms get frustrated with needs for security and reliable regularity. Innovations and situations of love, relations, sex, flings for new desires or bigger stomping grounds need to reflect, think before rashly acting, and patiently work for long term practical goals and not flings of imaginative fancy that may now back fire on you. Some think this not a good time to initiate conflict, struggle, war, new projects without danger of backlash or failure. Mars wants to act, do something, be physical. Good for yoga and gardening, cleaning, revisiting friends and goals, but perhaps tricky when voyaging into new territory without being well thought out. The Sun/Saturn is lack of control or too much control squashing creativity and freedom. Bad time to be angry, demanding, aggressive or possessive, over assertive or flamboyantly blurting proclamations. Full Moon in Capricorn gives further vibe to this mars retrograde time. Some get hard worked for respect and good prospect, others get hard karma demanding further work or paying past debts. Such aspect is most strongly affecting early Fixed signs Scorpio, Taurus, Leo, Aquarius planets, and late Cardinal Signs houses and planets of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra, Aries (Next Mars retrograde in 2020, Sept 9th to November 13). This Mars retrograde late June into August may be a tough one. July 19-20 Mars will conjunct S.Node. On day Mars goes retrograde, Mars is opposing Venus, and the Sun opposes Saturn exactly.

“We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can’t have both.”

——Louis D. Brandeis

June 27 Sun oppose Saturn tends to force reality and long term goals into affects and effects onto the days here. Some fall from airy fairy dreamy sweet nothings to terra firm ground. Some choose to stay home more often. Some study and prepare for better days and nights. Some see the fruitions of their good work. Doors close on some, certain events reach climax or ending or strong turning point, perhaps a sense of return or need to return. Happiness when alone. Hotter and colder, give love compassion and be patient.

Since the days of Greece and Rome, when the word ‘citizen’ was a title of honor, we have often seen more emphasis put on the rights of citizenship than on its responsibilities.

-Robert Kennedy (i met him, talked, touched. Love em and carry em in m’heart!)

Rise above the thorns of life long enough to know yourself a rose, a spirit roots earth and screams to be as vast as the sky and sun, circling stars and planets on the run singing one mantra; i love you, i love you, i love you. Be mad with love, all the others facts are maddening. Be One Truth, Love all in all even this moment still. ~rt.

June 30th Mercury square Uranus. Genius moments, mind reaching out further than grasp perhaps. For some tough communications and need to re-think or review, update, or get higher view. Avoid beating your point to death. Patience and loving kindness needed here. Need to tweak or make technical adjustment. Actions need to back up words, words need activate work, work needs to be smart not hasty. Good time for astrology or tarot reading or research.

Love and compassion, no matter how nuts and idealistic they seem, free us from ourselves long enough to see beyond our self, into a purpose and direction big enough to redeem our every past, enliven our every present and presence, and diving a future worth living into for the sake of each and everyone. ~robert of mayflower

There is a knighthood of the 21st century Whose riders do not ride through the darkness Of physical forests, as of old, But through the forest of darkened minds. They are armed with a spiritual armour, And an inner sun makes them radiant. Out of them shines healing, Healing that flows from the knowledge Of the human being as a spiritual being. They must create inner order, inner justice, Peace, and conviction in the darkness of our time. They must learn to work side by side with angels.

~Karl König.

Tolerating organized crime promotes the cheap philosophy that everything is a racket. It promotes cynicism among adults. It contributes to the confusion of the young and to the increase of juvenile delinquency.

Mayflower Bookshop, 2645 W. 12 Mile, Berkley, Mi. 48072

See below for latest talk on Youtube, ‘THE SOPHIA MYSTERY, the Triple Goddess, the Wisdom of the Spirit Soul and the fallen Angel Magalion’. Also other talks and a nice song i did hook up.

“Meditate to stop thinking and being stuck in sense bound head, then spiritual imagination will awaken. Stop imagining and new inspirations arises. Stop being inspired and intuitions come. Stop self cherishing and ego grasping, acting out of separateness, and the world will arrive on the door step of your awakened heart.”
-Trebore Tau Bodhi

July 1st Mercury in Gemini goes direct since going retrograde on June 7th. Much mental clarity and sureness in forward motion, direction, or coming actions and work come now, and in coming few weeks. Much quick wisdom in thinking and planning rush us to event and landing ideas practically as Mercury enters Cancer on 13th and Venus enters Cancer on 18th. Either one is at odds with self and other with thinking and feeling in conflict, or a new harmony between body/mind, thinking and feeling emerges to free the soul to be more creative and forthright, progressive and on-goingly blushed and flushed into the future. A renewed harmony and coordination of head and heart, beauty and truth/reality in personal and collective family/community expression.

July 4th Sun oppose Pluto. Danger of extremes in emotions and heat, weather, taking things too personally and reacting; jealousy, emotional obsessions, feeling overwhelms, or its opposite of just running over things to get things done. Take care to keep the quality of noble endeavour, virtuous mind expression. Avoid negative or going to extremes in emotions or talk. Be patient and mindful of self and other. Compassion is to see the divine in self and other, then to be patient with outer frustrations in disharmony with divine spark and sparkles. Good time to work on the self while attempting to see the pure nature in the other that is buried perhaps deeper than the outer circumstance displays. Avoid ultimatums or direct conflict. Avoid manipulating others through guilt, shame, blame, or projection. Boil all your troubles into two, self cherishing and lack of wisdom insight to change it for the better yet. Accept things as they are if you can’t change the situation, then turn up your loving kindness and patience. Work on self to change other. July 4th to 7th may be difficult time to travel or make your sharp points. Explosive emotions or repressed anger and depression? Good time for yoga, grains and greens, miso soup and OM CAFE, and long walks in mother nature. Very hot in some places. Moon occulting conjunct Mars on 6th good for physical work out, exercise, engaging others, but have extra patience and compassion for those stressed out and/or too forceful in expression or feelings of victimisation. Tough as it is, we all need to ponder karma, and the dharma that could free us. The assumption that the higher self has set this all up for our learning experience and growth makes life way more interesting and personally engaging, free.

The Earth makes its Aphelion on July 3-4th when the Earth is at its furthest point away from the Sun for the year. Earth now comes ever closer to Sun reaching perihelion closest distance on January 3rd. Do you feel you’ve gone too far out and now need to turn back into yourself a bit?!? Needless to say, since June Solstice when days longest and now start getting shorter in light, and now this point of Earth turning closer to Sun for next 6 months; one should take care not to be over-extended, over-doing, over-outgoing. One can with John the Baptist, sort of lose one’s head in the heart of summer and the heat of the moment. It may be time to take a breath after letting the last breath and events of past go. Let go and let God as they say. Do take notice of nature, the trees and green, they know this subtle nuance of cyclic life is turning inwards as we voyage out.

July 4th to July 8th the Sun in the sky triggers the parting Uranus/Pluto square revealing to many what changes are in store for our future, and how to interpret the past in such a way as to give wisdom to this time. We start to see what exactly is wrong and right about our own personal life and the life of the world around us; and what to do! Such aspect gives us more perspective on past and soon coming future, so take notes while objectively observing your own inner and outer worlds. Uranus is truth or new reality, urge to free; Pluto is urge to root, secure, find place, renew/regenerate. Negatively, it’s fights for rights, animal instincts and plutocratic manoeuvres. Many urged by new found freedoms or loss of such freedom or health, money or power. Urge to seek more long-term goals of security or freeing oneself from what has one’s light and love captured or overburdened, weighed down, or darkened. Sense of striving and struggling, working to express one’s best. For some, this time is a feeling of struggle, attempting to continually hold something together that keeps trying to fall apart. One is fighting to hold it together, or to let it go, part, or separate. Where there is Truth and compassionate understanding and awareness, there is always sure ground to hold and grow you, meditate and mediate a higher fuller expression of the divine. A healthy split is a knowledge of the seven principles of self as delineated in Blavatsky’s ‘Key to Theosophy’ or her ‘Voice of Silence’, just back in at Mayflower Bookshop. Also see Rudolf Steiner’s ‘Road to Self Knowledge’ or his book ‘Rosicrucian Wisdom’. I too go into it in my book ‘Astrological Aspects, the Art’.

Get good nourishment, exercise, fresh air, and sound sleep (or get good work done without over doing or taxing one’s self) especially the nights of July 7th-8th. Saturn aspects demand catching up or securing ground. Don’t burn out by pressing self or other too hard or negatively. Go slow and sure like the turtle to win merit here. Try yoga, meditation, tea, soup, massage, a trip to Mayflower Bookshop in Berkley Michigan, or the Om Cafe in Traverse City or Ferndale.

July 8th Sun square Uranus just after noon with Sun trine Saturn later in evening. Good day for surprise beginnings and peaceful endings, in days to come new beginnings. Evening good to lay back and chill, get bigger long-term view and plan better futures for tomorrow.

July 12 Full Moon (Full Moon at 7:25 a.m., so Friday June 11th is the full Moon night energetic as well as Sat.). With Mercury at its greatest elongation now, there is much sharing of minds and reaching out far to make someone happy or make something happen. Or is it just blowing in the wind, idle talk, jocular motion, and out of bounds outrageous play. Moon in Capricorn till 11:07pm est when Moon enters Aquarius, for some that will mark when it gets extra wild, insightful, or ‘crazy-go-nuts’ jiggle like bunnies or something. Long-term security or authoritative ‘always right’ sense of control works day with Capricorn Moon. Night rivals the status quo with animistic urge for freedom, spontaneous combustion, wild abandon, and a peculiar scientific mind and animal instinct meet. Or is it just great friendships going beyond one’s own fears or boundaries, and meetings of mind and heart dancing a new tangle. Experiences this week end (and this month for that matter) not usually in simultaneous occurrence and such synchronicity. The hunter and the gardener, lion and lamb, meet and agree for a spell? Letting go of what doesn’t work to ponder what could possibly work seems in the air.

July 13th, Venus in Gemini trines Mars and North Node in Libra (Mars/Node conjunct). Possibility of great team work, union of mind and heart, higher aspirations and noble endeavour. Passionate pursuit, lively feelings, artistic creativity, magnetic personalities subdue chaos and make fluid the situation. Otherwise cross currents and opposing desires/fears dominate situations making for troublesome times for some. Sexual attractions and interesting allurements at play. Spirit is trying to harmonise diverse worlds and moods. Danger of being too frank or honest causing upset or emotional reactions in others. Others may jiggle your patience and nerves. Good time for love and play though with mind and heart in harmony and balance.

July 16th Jupiter enters Leo for just over a year. Fire signs Leo, Sagittarius, Aries in general prosper, grow, expand, get lucky, feel overflowing in grace or kindness, in ability to give and take, share. Jupiter in Leo brings out new leaders or emulation models that colourfully shine, wine and dine us, and take charge of new futures. In general people will come out more in new splashes of fashion, colour, flowing and flowering in each their own unique quality and high style definition. Leo when feeling good is love and light, fun and expanding pleasures, self assurance and self confidence. Positive assertiveness takes the place of paranoia and inner reserve. Aristocratic or spiritual receptiveness, feelings, healthy belonging and attachment, friends and family all illuminate each other. If you have Leo planets, ascendent or midheaven, look for positive uptick in your ability to shine and grow.

“Love conquers all things, so we too shall yield to love. Amor vincit omnia, et nos cedamus amori.” -Virgil

July 18th, Venus enters sign of Cancer, a sense of musical chairs where the music stops and one needs to find good chair to weather the storm or craziness. Looking for the hug that holds you, or the nourishment for inner being. In next few days, Venus makes a Venus return to the USA Chart of July 4th, 1776. Things happen that remind us of our higher love and love for all living beings and things. There is a renewed sense of home, family and friends, and what counts most to our inner life flowering in peace and beauty, higher truth and joy.

July 19th Sun square Mars triggers lots of physical energy to do things, fix things, go places, challenge status quo, or manifest one’s dream or ideal. Danger of rash actions, hasty decisions or tongue leading to accident. Avoid taking things personally stirring emotional or negative reactions

July 20th Censorship increases round the world as freedom of expression is repressed. It’s a fine line if freedom goes too far in expressing animal instincts of fear and desire and mindless entertainment while the world really struggles for peace and harmony, healthy air and water. Many healthy and spiritual lifestyles don’t have the money to compete for advertisements. The mis-use of freedom has saturnian reactions. Conservative and authoritative Saturn goes direct at 16 Scorpio while July 21st-22nd freedom loving Uranus goes retrograde in Aries. Inhibition or reluctance meets agitation, and push may come to shove here. Freedom and human equality, healthy air and water, good education for all clash with totalitarian states of mind and plutocracies. A sudden strong sense of what works and what doesn’t emerges. Sudden shifts, shafts, firing and hiring, sudden strong decisions and big plans in the political, economic, and corporate arenas of google, amazon, telecommunications, face book, energies, gold. Funny times for electrical or computer glitches, miscommunications of feelings and thoughts. Feelings of estrangement vs. intense intimacies. Sudden stops or dead ends while in other places an ‘all ahead go’ push. Sudden deep transformations of feelings and thoughts, deep inner stirrings suddenly move one from seriousness to ascendent play, freedom, frolic and letting go; or one is moved in the opposite direction from spontaneous free play to extreme egotism and survival, sudden deep seriousness or long-term work or commitment, strategy. Sudden rise and/or fall of leaders, the famous, those on top. Some on bottom, rise. Reversals at play. Those born the 4th to 11th of any particular month affected strongly. Fire signs feel hot and lucky. Libra and Aquarius take extra care around hot heads or idiots of knee jerk or chaotic actions. Taurus, be patient but avoid feeling stuck with others or some situation that will change in time. Find inner freedoms and insights to open new roads of action and possibility. This is a time itching for renewed feminine wisdom and spirit soul calls for renewed action and wisdom compassion in politics and all human affairs. With Saturn going direct, authority and powers that be move forward with long-term plans. Uranus retrograde sparks those who don’t have their feet on the ground to come back down to the ground or chance crashing back to reality. Or is it just slow and sure outward plodding ahead and inward sudden awakening, sudden zolts of new intelligence and spirit knowledge quickening your way?!

July 22nd Mercury opposes Pluto while the Sun enters sign of Leo. Serious thought and provocative events force strong decisions and actions with long-term consequence. Strength of conviction and persuasive argument push agenda or direction. Strong words or thoughts stirs reaction for better or worse. A need to let go of worry, do your best, and let go and let God, Goddess

July 24th Venus trine Neptune love dreams/wishes, Sun conjunct Jupiter goes big/expands light/love, Mercury squares Uranus and trines SATurn intellectually awakens, revolts, and seeks practical knowledge. Power forces of Love and Good Will wrestle with larger issues and problems working for a more holistic all encompassing solution for community/family/planetary good. Much luck or sudden change in luck for better or worse comes to those who dare truth and love, reaching for higher ideal.

July 25th Mars enters Scorpio giving one a sense that ‘This can’t keep going on!’ — whatever ‘this’ or that is for each of us. Mars/Scorpio wants to get to the point, get it over with, complete or retreat, cut out anything not necessary or to achieve needed goal/desire. A sense of immediacy and immanent danger or endeavour, adventure.

July 26th New Moon in Leo near Jupiter in sky. For many, next weeks bring a sense of positive growth and expansion of individual goals concerning travel, business, spiritual aspirations, calling, work, money, friendships, community, family. Strong sense of group or team identity. Need for universal compassion and reverance for all. Need to avoid over-doing, over-indulging or eating/drinking. Ego can get carried away with these aspects but otherwise a really good time to feel that one both participates and belongs to a greater sense of spirit and adventure. Fun times of sharing, giving, caring, receiving.

July 28th (27th to 29th influence) Venus oppose Pluto. Fanatic or intensified attraction or repulsion. If you chase it, it runs. If it chases you, you run. Need to take a breath and relax in the heart of silent contemplation, compassion, and insight. Exchanging self for other and pondering what others go through helps give compassionate wise perspective. Inner compulsions and frantic fanatic affairs of the heart and mind. Mad lovers. Fierce attractions or repulsions. Intensification of feelings. Important aspect to avoid jealousy or taking things too personally, too seriously, and/or feeling hurt over another’s action or words. Good time to engage another artistically or lovingly, but also good time to work on oneself, clean up one’s own act, change oneself to affect the other. Rid self of clutter or unwanted things blocking your psychic path to better futures. Empty self to renew vision, meditate on oneness with all life and truth that all things are interdependent on each other. Everything around you mothers your experience, thus everything is your mother. How your inner self responds it the father of the future. Make love not war here means embrace whatever is happening with silent awareness and learning.

August 1st-2nd-3rd wild weekend with renewed sense of love, old and new friends, travel, visits, cars and cafes, fun conversing, play, interactions. Try to get a good night’s sleep Sunday August 3rd because come Monday’s Moon occult conjunct Saturn at 6:29 a.m., somebody’s gonna be really tired and not quite ready for a hard work day. First two weekends of August wild with aspects of fun and adventure, but avoid recklessness and going too far beyond safe boundaries. Blessings and joy!

“Where two or more gather for sure, human love awakens the river of time, sacred space for souls to arrive, grace the place and divine, how to unfold the mind into heart’s sunshine.”
-robert of mayflower

Astrology for the times—

March 29th Venus trines Mars good for love and kissing, foreplay and just good old friends at play. Venus early eve square Saturn putting a dampener on affairs, cooling off weather; but for some a deepening of their wisdom mind stream as to what matters and what doesn’t for long run.

March 30th New Moon conjunct Uranus while both opposing retrograde Mars on 31st triggers early warning shots of Grand Cross of April. Quakes? Solar eruptions? Storms and Winds of Change? Or just sudden shifts in directions, habits and patterns, goals? Difficult connections, fragile feelings, strong reactions, or is it temporary breakdown in communications. Brains vs. Brawn and instinctive will? Taking risks and being opposed. Storms, natural or man-made crisis or phenomena, mishaps, earthquakes, accidents, war drums, quirky stock markets, and other wild sudden new challenges or adventures arise now and continue to amaze us all month. Many world changes and re-directing impulses present themselves. Also, near genius spiritual creative impulses try to find new solutions and doorways to prosperity while attempting to make peace not crisis or war. Crazy month coming up here for highly unusual events, changes, shifts in Aquarian Age sense of revival or increased awareness of higher consciousness arises. A renewed sense of individual and collective spiritual awakening prevails, along with a need for common sense and universal good spirit, one humanity yet each of inner worth, love for the earth arises. Or so I hope … Many breakdowns and breakthroughs, challenges with communications, electricity, lightning, satellites, and new vulnerabilities to truth and love.

“You can’t find light in the dark, not really. Dark can’t make sense of itself. The same old finds the same old. If in the dark, turn on a light; learn something new. When you turn on the light, the darkness flees. That’s why the Mayflower Bookshop is here, to turn new lights on! For others, Mayflower can help the mind find rest, quiet, the holy dark.”
-robert of mayflower

April 1st, 2nd, 3rd Sun triggers the April Grand Cross. Hopefully the Sun brings us light, warmth, insight and love. Sun square Jupiter on 1st expands our thinking. Sun conjunct Uranus on 2nd shakes, rocks, and rolls us to new arrangements and sudden shock changes perhaps quaking foundations with new realisations. Sun square Pluto on 3rd arouses a politics of compassion or one of reaction. Strong indications of what’s to come later in month may appear these last and next 3 days. This is a really good time to make the changes in self and surroundings you’ve been waiting to make for some time. Update, don’t re-negotiate. Lots of challenges but lots of good things happening too. Can be a bit of a chaotic time perhaps as the world still works at learning to make peace/balance/harmony with self, other, and environment. These first three days in April can be vastly enriching and rewarding, but also a time forcing strange bedfellows together for odd or upsetting reasons and circumstance. It’s a make peace not war time for some. World events staggering in their future potentials and possibilities. Vicissitudes and provocative events this month cause ripples and waves in reality, world media, economics, science; along with many knee jerk reactions. Expect sudden change of direction or change in response from self to other or other to self. Expect the unexpected, yet have to expectations. Step out of the light to let others shine to earn long-term kindness. New initiatives and remarkable responses to find immediate solutions to problems. Markets, politics, geopolitical hotspots tingle and twist, gush then reverse, and perhaps even drop out of sight. Caution advised during these times. Mercury goes into fiery Aries on April 7th possibly making for hot shots and hotheads, so be cool near volcanic emotional activity. Sink holes are expanding so learn to fly in your wisdom and compassion. Enthusiasm good, anger bad here.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
-Martin Luther King Jr.

“Love your enemies.”
-Jesus and Buddha said that.

Sun opposes Mars in retrograde on April 8th further triggering anger or weird accidents and precipitive danger. Need to attempt quick resolution to expanding problems. Avoid negative emotions exploding into disruptive events. Last 3 months a foreshadow of possible coming events. Events starting to unfold last months more fully emerge now in first days of April. Tendency to get carried away, yet also time to be actualised to manifest one’s dreams. Yet tough time to daydream this month! Sun/Mars is sure fire action hero stuff, but also a dangerous time to take risk or travel. Avoid stress, use of risky machinery, avoid arguments and impulsive acts, use of force or anger. On the light side, the Sun brings light of intelligence and understanding, resolution, if one listens and is clear-minded, right hearted. Mars tends to act and not listen, act and ask questions later. With Mars retro avoid hasty or rash actions triggering mistakes, accidents, or misfortune, loss. Higher octave of Mars is Buddhist Compassion and Wisdom in practice. Anthroposophically speaking, Buddha now on Mars. Buddha is working on and in the Astral Plane of dreamtime and emotions with Wisdom/Compassion, selfless ennobling virtue action. Mars is also Michaelic Wisdom and Courage to do the right thing with a heart of gold, love and truth. The Sun makes for the light of moral imagination possible, the rising or uplifting consciousness in the spirit of the good, true, and beautiful. May that happen! Om!

“When he shall die, take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.”
-William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

“Love doesn’t have to rely on another, we are love. When you realise that, there is no falling or rising in love, only being, forever shining in love.”
-robert of mayflower

April 11th-12th Venus conjuncts Neptune. Some balloons and illusions pop. For others, the little red balloon of imagination is starting to carry them to success. Such aspect can create mystical magical love, romance, escape, private gardens and parties, secret affairs of higher airs and nomenclature. For others, the dream is melting. Security and tradition struggle with progressive and perhaps needed change, fresh air and ideas. Need to simplify or purify self, diet, environment. With Venus in Pisces, follow your love; don’t follow your fear, need, or false imagination or projection on others, the world. Good time to have a talk with God, one’s deep silence, the ocean of love compassion lives there. One for all, all for One ideal. Avoid projections, shame and blame, name and cheap gain. Time for reality check to keep from miscuing. Avoid unnecessary criticism and emotional negativity. Good time to beautify, clean, sparkle, and shine. Some experience weird psychic phenomena and mysterious dreams, intuitions, sightings. Logical mind and feelings, reason and intuitions may conflict. Moon in Virgo while Venus conjuncts Neptune attempts to join the practical common hard-working sense with the intuitive feel for it all. Travels or plans to travel, plans for future, musical or artistic endeavours prevail at this time. April 14th Mercury squares Jupiter and conjuncts Uranus, bringing innovative, radical, or even revolutionary ideas to the table. A time of strong outbursts of genius and creativity. Take care not to rock the boat unless you are taking over the boat and giving new course instructions. Sudden events and turn of events give new revelations, insights, surprises, and unusual news. Rethinking and upgrading in vogue here. Sudden turnings on and off, and on again. One door closes, another opens kind of vibe. Avoid distractions from true goals and work aims.

“Some pick flowers, others plant them. There is a season for everything.”
-robert of mayflower

April 14-15 Pluto goes retrograde for 5 months (big plans take that long, or is it mistakes taking that long to fix!). Tendency to try to reverse one’s wheels or face karmic fate. Or is it sitting back and taking a deep breath to re-examine the state of affairs in light of a bigger picture. Dangerous quirky time for markets, investments, turn arounds (also April 20-24th period). Higher Angels of destiny are also at play here above and behind the scenes. Powerful moves made this month in the world chess game, proving to either further the game or even tilt the game out of balance. Also note, a total Lunar Eclipse visible in U.S.A. April 15th with Mercury square Pluto! Tough news day for sure. Need for clear, sure decision-making. Cardinal Signs and houses beware: Aries/Libra/Capricorn/Cancer (see your chart for houses). Eclipses (and we have 2 in April) have a way of cutting things out and plopping new realities in. Big changes for some. Pimps and pimples pop, others betray or radically change moods and mind, posture, position. Eclipses also good for becoming intuitively sensitive. Sometimes too sensitive. Sudden changes and turn-arounds. A sense of need to eliminate negative elements or be eliminated. Danger of negative projection and making strange difficult ultimatums, which may back fire. Yet, those in the power often use eclipses to make strong changes in structure and directions. Chance of moments of very poor weather, difficult communications or relations, sour dispositions. Need for much patience and compassion in dealing with others’ problems. Attempts to further positive goals, may feel held back, other’s resistant. Sense of immediate needs and demands, and frustration achieving such goals or results. Good for research, deep thinking, taking one’s time and being patient. Heed warning signs of danger and impending necessities. Indications of fate and destiny abound. Need to rid oneself of unnecessary baggage or negative habits. Danger between this and next eclipse of 29th of major awkward or shocking changes. Good time to cut out all bad habits and to keep mindful of one’s own thoughts and feelings. Here negativity is its own reward. Virtuous actions worth 1000 times more spiritual merit (inner wealth, wisdom, love). Libra Full Moon time calls for balanced heart and mind when it comes to personal needs and desires vs. those of others. Work and personal life need strike new balance. Avoid negative criticisms that are not constructive or educational towards bettering oneself.
If all this is confusing, let me put it this way. Work on yourself and try to leave others alone or to their own means of learning, growing. Go inward and kneel at a heart of compassion for all.

“Love is a madness, for others reason is. Genius is to grow a garden and friends anyway.”
-robert of mayflower

April 16th Mercury oppose Mars, Good insights and ideas come but difficult to express in a way others understand. Tendency to quarrel, argue, debate. A sense of getting one’s thoughts aired, yet disagreements and contesting abound. Avoid gossip and loose windy thoughts/talk going nowhere. Tendency for one-sided intellectuality. Logic at odds with feelings, demands or needs with instinctive passions. Danger of crash and burn, pushing others too far, or going too far with demands or ultimatums. Yet need now to give warning and draw line of how far one will go to accomplish aim and avoid disputes, or how much one can take before breaking point reached.

“Love is freedom from the self, freedom is compassion for self. The true nature of the Self is freedom and love. Here, truth is the housekeeper, service to higher love/compassion the soon to be master student.”
-robert of mayflower

April 17th, Moon occults Saturn and Venus trines Jupiter. Some parts cold, others warm up friendly and lovingly. Long-term love works here, as well as practical true and tried methods of operations. Sense of new friendship while good old friends seem golden. Happiness in little things. Negativity is its own reward, so be sweet and warm and patient to win this day. Be the warmth and love you want. April 17th Venus trines Jupiter and on April 25th Venus trines Saturn giving an 8 day window to future Jupiter trine Saturn in May Vibe … Great time to make big plans for the future. Good time to follow your love and bliss, gather round you robust friends and make virtuous vows for future trends, family, friends, community, and world peace endeavour, joy, prosperity. This can be a most fortunate time, especially for those with planets and houses in water signs (see your astrological chart for where your water is hidden).

“The public is wonderfully tolerant. It forgives everything except genius.”
-Oscar Wilde, from The Artist as Critic

April 20th The official Grand Cross is in Play here! Jupiter squares Uranus, Jupiter oppose Pluto, Moon triggers Pluto/Jupiter/Mars/Uranus. These are critical days for many – a realisation and major understanding, event or happening potentially forever changing your life. A real sense of new beginning but also a sense of ‘death and rebirth’ for some. In ancient Egyptian Initiation, Osiris lays in death-like coffin for 3 days and then resurrects or ascends. Our soul is contained within the symbolic three days within the physical, emotional, and mental plane. Initiation or coming to wisdom, is letting the Universal Spirit of love and truth awaken our Souls to shine in a new way within its three sheaths or bodies. Same wisdom for Ishtar the Goddess of Spring. Jesus the Christos descending into hell for 3 days reveals this enlivening and renewing rejuvenating of the physical, etheric, astral bodies. This is a big part of the Easter mystery. See Steiner’s ‘Festivals’ lectures. Spring has for better and worse arrived and we slowly again raise our consciousness along with the flowers and rising sap to honour higher skies, stars, angels, virtues, above and within us. Strong shifts in how we look at life occur at this time, April 20-24th. At this point it’s clear what we are dealing with to survive and thrive as a planetary culture, community, and people. A sense of progress and change, quickening and growth; or a sense of crash and defeat, thickening and slow down fill this time period with change. Markets and weather highly provocative and may go to extreme or reversal. In politics and the entertainment arena, more than a few heads roll while others quickly rise to new fame or power. This month into May, events continue to play out, even to July/Aug where things take a much more positive up turn. Weather can be really weird in parts of world, especially beginning, middle, and 20th to 24th April. Intense hot vs. way cooler, wet vs. way dry hot, up vs. way sinkhole down these days. The grand cross reflects how many feel crucified and nailed to some unfortunate situation or life process. For others the cross is reflective of spiritual and material manifestation, incarnation and realisation of the ideal, one’s higher aspirations and dreams. The cross can be a four fold incarnation or manifestation of the higher self. A realisation of one’s goals or desires. Plato said the World Soul is “crucified”, meaning fourfold, cubed, on the square, in time and space within each individual. (See my book ‘Astrological Aspects the Art’ available worldwide for further esoteric and practical wisdom on this; i.e. platonic solids and chakras, four Noble Truths and Rudolf Steiner’s ‘Foundation Stone Meditation’, astrological aspects, the descent and re-ascent of the goddess).

“True change always happens from within first. Events unfolding now are but decisions and actions of the past, our karma. How our inner self interacts and participates with life creates the future.”
-robert of mayflower

April 21 Uranus Squares Pluto. Forced change for many, others make major decisions affecting self or other. Need for yoga, meditation, relaxation arts, contemplation, patience and new learning to deal with the stressful times. Tendency to rebel or criticise without real alternative wise solutions. Need for truth and higher-minded awareness. Need to address suffering in wise ways. Helping others to help self is key here.

“Sometimes when the grasshopper’s cage door is left open they don’t jump for freedom, sometimes they do.”
-Trebore Tau Bodhi

April 22 Mars square Jupiter triggers ACTION and heroics or foolhardiness for some. The Grand Cross is totally activated positively here but the days to come may give many a crisis opportunity challenge or obstacle. Here the hero wears a thousand faces, the fool but one. Important time to not be too exuberant or over done. Appropriate well-defined action needed. Tendency to overdo or party too hard, over eat, or over satiate. Here, as Goethe noted, too much good is evil. Need to act for sake of others. Heroic acts and selfless endeavours go far here.

“Scientists are always looking for speed, quickening thing and thinks up. They want to find something first and faster, even go faster, than the speed of light. But forever will darkness be first and last, there from the beginning and there when we finally arrive, and even after too. And the secret of darkness is easy, it is love, the heart yet unfathomed, unknown, alone and yet still one. It is love, and the light of stars and mind is its consort.”

April 23rd Mars opposes Uranus triggering Grand Cross and causing reactions and backlash from preceding events and actions. Mars/Uranus is lightning fast changes, reactions, accidents, misfires, calamity, violence, crashes, explosive events, mishaps. Yes it can be a call far and beyond duty, incredible luck and bravery, success. For most this is dangerous time so play it safe. Expect strange mysterious events in high places of religion, politics, economics, and the every day flow rhythm. Squares and Oppositions in astrology put one into the center of the action, trines are more visionary or feeling oriented. Avoid wild man action hero antics or demanding too much attention or center stage. This grand cross in cardinal signs signifies world events where everybody, like it or not, feels they are tossed into the action. On the other hand, one could say, that each and every one of us by the way we live, breathe, think, feel, act, are co creative agents for change. Each of us has a front seat, or on stage center, of the action. How we live our life, creates, or co-creates, the world. We are the world, and yes we are also alone. Though it’s all crazy at times, we can be intelligent enough to share and care, make peace with ourself and the world. Each of us is both at fault and at cause. To see oneself as victim is spiritual suicide, even if it is true materialistically or outwardly. From the higher point of view, our higher self has put us here to learn and we picked the time and circumstance to perfect our self learning world education. There is no shame or blame or game playing here, there is just learning and returning till we do it right. We come to grow and know ourselves as co-creative beings with the whole of life, the future of the world. How one lives their life is a vote for futurity good or ill. Only you and God, or Divine Mind, know for sure how you voted. I can only take a good guess and my guess is that many frustrations come from not voting or not voting well. Ha! Soul wake up, live your highest ideal, virtue, dream, bliss, angel, call it what you will. Avoid drugs and negative emotions that could obscure your clear highest sense of all Life. Live the life to know the teachings, yourself, the other. Om Ah Hum, May it be! Obviously with crazy aspects like the ones earth has been going through since Pluto went into Capricorn. Some real estate and goods will go sky high in price while other places and faces fall into disarray and free fall in price and merit. Many relationships are re-thinking goals and definitions of what is happiness and who do I share the adventure with. The times are a’changin, re-arrangin’. The future is re-strategizing for some, or alarmingly disengaging for others. Strangely enough, this could be a highly prized time to have a baby; for others the worst time. Same for all big doings, plans, and future projects, projections, and precipitations of art, biz, and spirit.

“Rose gold diamond dew on the green, wet with morning dreaming May flowers trembling like young butterflies to wing weaving blue skies on tips of asparagus and pastel petals momentarily still twinklings eternity grants hearts with eyes to see.”
-robert of mayflower

April 25th Venus trine Saturn, Moon conjunct Venus, Sun conjunct Mercury. Love and reality, common sense and kindness, conscious recognition and smarts make sense of past events and set proper stage for fixing things up, bettering the future, making good on promises, making amends and future plans.

“She told me I was no Keats, and I realised again nothing would hold me until I could be myself alone with her.”
-Aria Fairchild

April 27th Moon again triggers past grand cross, after shocks, anger, hurt, emotional overload, intense feelings. Good day to catch up, heal, clean, rest, renew, reflect on the times past and to come.

“It’s hard to say if the kiss lit the stars or the stars lit the kiss, but heaven and earth touch lips when a heart opens to another.”
-Aria Fairchild and the Mayflower Guitars

April 29th Solar Eclipse in Taurus affecting fixed signs and houses primarily (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius). Sudden cutting off or being cut off, sudden change of plans or future, sudden change in day-to-day rhythms. Mercury trines Pluto giving help in finding intellectual understanding of very moving events (for some).

“Without Love this world is haunted,
Without Truth this world is alone.”
-robert of mayflower
