Truth and freedom is co-created in the Spirit of our deepest and furthest, intrinsic and transcendental imagination, dream, genius. Seek a ‘Spiritual Science’ of Higher Consciousness in everyday life.

Here is freedom~ There is no purpose or meaning to life, we must create such. We create meaning by distilling our experience and perceptions of the world into our own stillness listening heart. We create purpose by seeing and experiencing the ONE LIFE in all forms, the ONE Universal Mind in harmony with the feelings and thinking in all things. We find ourselves in freedom and loving kindness, compassion and creativity. Here the WORLD WORD or sense of being co-creative with self and other is born, arises in cognitive awareness. When out of freedom, truth and love meets destiny, eternal friendships are formed. Born out of sacred space and a wish for all to be happy, true relationship arises with all life, all times, all peoples and places.

In Spirit we share in divine Oneness, in Soul both heaven and earth awaken divine wisdom, in Body we partake, share, sacrifice, rebirth, honoring all forms as expression of a deeper divine union, melody, and harmony. May Peace come to the world.

Aug 26 – Pres. Trump transit of Saturn opposes progressed midheaven, Bottoming out at the White House? Or is it a turning point, possibly indicating a positive turn after difficult times? A rising up, once past this bottoming? Is it laying new foundation, finding right ground to stand on? Possible low point though for now. On the heels of mars square Saturn in sky, sense of authoritarian progress? A weighed down feeling?  A lack of silence to think? Happiness when alone? Don’t worry if this doesn’t make sense, neither does the world at the moment. All astrological aspects have a higher and lower octave that each individual must find for themselves out of individual striving and struggling for truth and freedom with higher sense of love for all life. Each is a child of God or Universal Goodness, Oneness; but it a question of cognitive awareness and capacity for acting in attunement to  such.. Not everyone’s resonating with their higher octave. In time, in some lifetime , it will happen for us all. May that time come soon for the sake of the planet.

So tough aspects late august here for the Pres, but in mid Sept. N. Node and Venus trine progressed Jupiter will bring him more luck in love and money and popularity. It’s a race to the end it seems.

“Give up your opinions! Nothing is right
until it works One for All, All for One.”

~robert of mayflower

 

Aug. 27th Venus trine Neptune. Ideal love dreams us on. Good for creativity, art, and spiritual soul mating. Not good for hard line, bottom line, tough rules/laws/facts. Some dream of far away places, or escape from reality. Some actually do create alternative beautiful dream realities finding the muse, higher octaves of the good, true, and beautiful. Water Signs and houses here favored for wonderful feeling life, spiritual insights, wonder and awe, higher love.

Good aspect dreaming in the future now, loving, dreaming true, touching the ideal, finding inspiration to renew, go on, dream real. Dreams reveal secrets of each other’s soul life.  Higher creativity, transcendental idealism and angelic heart inspirations possible.

 

Higher truths will never be found,
unless you live it, fall, rise again, try again;
then it begins to speak for itself
shining and reflecting in all the world
in and around.

~robert of mayflower

 

Aug 29th Mercury in Virgo trine Jupiter in Capricorn. Practical thinking can work into long term benefit, goals. Good time to practically figure out about everything! Bookkeeping, accounting, right details in conversing, sharing, facts, plans, cleaning, fixing up, who to work with or not. Good for correcting, dharma, making right connection. Thinking clear. Take care to breathe deep and work ideas into feelings and actions. Avoid over intellectually and head alone without heart. Earth Signs and houses here favored for money and luck, love and connection.

“In fact the law of karma is the most consoling law there is. Just as it is true that nothing exists without a cause, so it is equally true that nothing existing remains without its effects. I may be born in poverty and misery; my abilities may be very limited; yet whatever I do must produce its effect, and whatever I accomplish now, by way of industry or moral activity, will certainly have its effect in later lives. If it depresses me to think that I have deserved my present destiny, it may equally cheer me to know that I can frame my future destiny myself.

Anyone who really takes this law into his thinking and feeling will soon realize what a sense of power and of security he has gained. We do not have to understand the law in all its details; that becomes possible only at the higher stages of clairvoyant knowledge. Much more important is it that we should look at the world in the light of this law and live in accordance with it. If we do this conscientiously over a period of years, the law will of its own accord become part of our feelings. We verify the truth of the law by applying it.”

~Rudolf Steiner, Spiritual Science

The role of the artist is the creative genius and struggle between feelings and the divine spark, between spirit and nature, between self and other, the art and science,  shared.

~robert of mayflower

The future of the world depends on each of us discerning the spark of God within all, the holy stillness of the Great Compassion as Mother within each and all, our co creative spirit and brotherly sisterhood with all life.

~Trebore Tau Bodhi

 

Aug. 30 Venus in Cancer oppose Pluto in Capricorn. Cardinal signs and houses challenged affected the most to have more patience and long term wisdom, working solutions to make all happier. Fire and Air signs may offer solutions. Water signs sympathetic. Aries, Capricorn, Libra need soften up their too hard take and projection on others. Conflict between home and work, feelings and clear thinking. Feeling overwhelmed by world toxicity? Overwhelming feelings and emotions without clear head light? Mend and weave, garden and clean, cook and chew well, sing and don’t yell, love little things and let big thinks and things go for a spell.

Avoid negative emotions you can’t do anything about. In trying to have compassion for self and other, hold to stillness and silent listening to the heart of the world birthing right thinking.

Change yourself to change your world round. Don’t take anything too personal. Look for the silence before and after the storm, but in the thick of it. listen to the silence at the midst of the hurricane.

The ‘higher self’ speaks through the noise and emotional chaos in the stillness permeates all.

One may have feelings of being rejected, but never reject the Higher Self, ideal, virtue, what is trying to speak from total love and truth from our deep within, everyone’s deep within!

This sometimes good aspect for research, intense communication, transformational spiritual psychology, fecundative kundalini research and experience.

Intense dreams or imaginations. Possible visit to the underworld and back. Opportunities for compassion and new learning. Happiness when alone with it all pondering wisdom of present past future.

Home/personal wishes and world/work/calling at odds perhaps.

Jealousy doesn’t work here. Letting go of attachment, need for control, negative emotions and its subsequent psycho drama, frees  higher self and more spiritual calling to come in.

Deeper feelings for one’s many life times and many friends, family, close ones, give nonexclusive right perspective and freer view.

Here, fear is confession to lack of truth, lack of love, holds us all sacred. Fear is another form of egoism protecting little self, this shore only view. (See Voice of Silence by HPB). Fear is lack of love for higher self.  Where truth, no fear, just going on learning, no shame nor blame, peacefully onwards.

In the news, time for more dirt on everybody without higher insight nor solution, resolution, wisdom insight how to go.

Good time to clean up one’s own mess and catch up to tomorrow today.

“The true importance of ‘Know the thyself’ is in the fact that we pursue world evolution in this way. Where is our self? It is surely not in us alone. To think that would be egotistical. It is born out of the entire cosmos, and our ascent should lead us to the point where we expand into the whole world. Self-knowledge wants to place man into the entire world, in order to show him the true meaning of the word ‘self-knowledge.”

~Rudolf Steiner, GA 109-111; 1909.

 

Sept 2nd Full Moon in Pisces, don’t take things so personal! Be the love truth you are looking for! Venus oppose Saturn and Sun trine Uranus. Feeling unloved or incapable of love. Wish to break out of feeling stuck. Such aspect makes for reality take on whether or not your head on right. Questions about of what is real love and truth, versus sex and facts. What is truth, love, lasts and nourishes us. What is not real or enlivens our spirit soul will drain us, tire us, mislead us into falsities. Discipline means learning, freedom means truth holds us all, not just ‘facts’ limited in time and space.

Sun/Uranus can make us brave of the dark, brave of the light, brave to reach out in new ways, to change creatively right now, inward out.

 

Sept. 4th Venus in Cancer squares Mars in Aries. Inner or Home needs contest world or job needs. Heart vs Head. Perhaps for some, stomach and animal appetite vs head light and mental desires; giving war or struggle to the heart of things.

New initiatives rile home security? Home or heart soul inner spirit demands press clearer reality to continual outer world struggle, striving, fight.

Serious energetic to come home to oneself. Then and only then, ‘other’ falls in line. Such aspect notorious for lovers fighting or having the best time of their life.

Sept. 9th Mars retrograde marks the beginning of a very nasty couple (or ‘uncoupling’ couple) of months heading for the November USA Presidential Election. Lots of ups and downs with weather, markets, moods and grooves.

Or is it, everyone decides to be a Buddhist and have compassion for how hard everyone tries even if we don’t all agree?

Struggles for good work, striving for ‘rights’, fighting for what one deeps right.  It’s now a volatile rough tough time to come to peaceful mutually beneficial agreement. Much patience and kindness needed to get through this time. Exercise, yoga, healthy habit and food, chewing good, regular sleep, helps lots.

For some, a good time to step back to find stillness, peace, the wisdom take on right action, bravado and truth. Difficult time for simple love to share, care, and dare. Tough time to simply be yourself come hell or high water. Be gentle, kind, compassionate, and inwardly daring to see the truth, patient to act.

Sept. 11th Sun in Virgo oppose Neptune in Pisces. Criticalness to a fault? Over reacting? Or terrible truths, facts, shifting view? Truth and lies get mixed up now. Actions speak louder than words. Avoid taking new steps if not totally clear in mind and heart. Nice aspect for artistic ideals, higher love, future plans. Real Truth is what holds us all,  divines the divine and larger view holding us all, in the tiniest facts.

This aspect reveals clash between the ideal and the immediate practical reality. Little things and big thinks, things, of life, attempt to find harmony and communication, or clash.

 

Where there is no love, there is no future.
Where there is no truth, no present, no present or gift;
no divining divine Presence and holy wonder awe futurity.

~robert of mayflower

 

Sept. 12th Jupiter goes direct now heading for big conjunction  in Aquarius with Saturn on Winter Solstice in December. Truth and Love now hold hands, meet minds, conjure sense of higher self, co-creative with the times, the future. Many a magical spiritual event is in the works. Encounters with angels, higher octaves of insight and behavior are now coming into view.

“The World Ether is a thought forming power.” 

~Rudolf Steiner, April 20, 1923

 

Sept 17th New Moon in Virgo. Mercury squares Jupiter and Sun trines Saturn.  New ideas and connections expand one’s hope for bigger life, new growth, friends and family.

Lots of new ideas to move better, more freely, into the future.

A wanting to root deeper but flower further. Lots little new thinks and things capture one’s imagination and intuition.

Teaching by example is the best. Use only constructive criticism when need be.

Sept. 19 – For Pres. Trump, Venus trine prog. Jupiter. Happy time? Does Pres get or give a little bit of love? May indicate his happiness for a moment, or that others getting happier. This may be lucky good moment for making positive things happen for one and all. No it doesn’t mean he will win. Yet each has freedom to recreate what up and what coming.

“When the Sea is calm, all the boats look good.”

~Shakespeare

 

Sept 20-21st Mercury square Pluto. More bad news, stormy stuff, expresses in weather and behavior rest of month into next here. Good for research, cleaning, clearing, ridding, turning inward, pondering in stillness with compassion and openness to learn anew. Difficult aspect to debate or get anywhere further (for most).

Compassion without wisdom knowledge insight is a gardening by night alone in need of light.

~robert of mayflower

 

Sept. 23 Mercury square Saturn, on 24th Mercury oppose Mars, on 25th Moon triggers Pluto/Saturn/Mercury/Mars; followed by Sept 29th Mars retrograde square Saturn making for a tough week (or two) of rough news, weather, emotions, economics, dirty fighting, and a renewed need for law and order of a higher order of wisdom truth compassion with teeth. 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.

Positive side of Saturn is yoga and meditation, Mars is mantra and virtuous actions brave for truth, Pluto is compassionate selflessness learning what is right for all, holy towards all, the most good for the many, sharing what one has.

“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. 

 

“it is well to remember that in the last analysis, there is nothing else in the universe beside consciousness … thus being, in various states of consciousness, are the only reality in the world.”

~rudolf steiner, from ‘The Fifth Gospel’

 

October 16th New Moon in Libra.

October 31st Full Moon on Halloween in Taurus with Sun oppose Uranus. 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.

 

November 3rd Election day, Mercury goes direct from retrograde 12:50 pm making for complete zany craziness and multitudinous 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.

“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

 

December 21st Winter Solstice Sun in Capricorn 5:02 am, Moon in Pisces enters Aries at 5:32 pm. Jupiter conjuncts Saturn in Aquarius at zero degree 1:21 pm (all this after Dec. 14 Solar Eclipse at 23 degree Sagittarius!) !!!  Clearly this aspect and months around it give world a sense of World Event, heaven and hell, tragedy and hope, real and surreal, awakening an individual and collective sense of spiritual identity, world karma good and bad, and either ‘in or out’ sense of the time, space, place, self.

Jupiter conjunct Saturn in air sign Aquarius, last time in Aquarius 1186 thru to 1226. This December till 2159,jupiter Saturn conjunct in air signs. This time period is an opportunity to incorporate and incarnate the high ideals of the Aquarian Age coming in few hundred year’s time. The ideals that all humanity is one family of brothers and sisters, that freedom of the Spirit, art, free thinking, culture and religion is flowering within each individual, that social and political justice is possible, that an economics of brotherly love is possible, that an awakening to world peace and health, wisdom and compassion, truth and love for all the earth is possible.

The astrological chart for the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction winter solstice in Aquarius, set for Washington DC, reveals zero degree Taurus rising sign at midpoint of Mars/Uranus- A sense prevails at this time for intensified creative action, freedom, independence and bravado. Danger of conflict, upsets, travel troubles, accident, storm nature or man-made mishap. Hopefully this aspect indicated courage and truth, sudden rise to the occasion, a raising up to higher levels of awareness, consciousness, healing, and insight: especially for earth signs (Taurus/Capricorn/Virgo). Scorpio, Aquarius, Leo will feel the pressure to rise above ego attachment and help out, do something new, to better the situation at hand.

With Sun/Mercury in Capricorn trine to the Taurus Ascendant, many folks experience divine intervention, angelic help, spiritual insight and revelation, higher virtues and spiritual potentials afoot and at work. Many folks waking up to what’s really up and what we individually and collectively can do about problems/troubles at hand.

Pluto at midheaven of Jupiter/Saturn chart indicates world trouble, financial fears, political conflict, collective need for change or higher attunement, compassionate action. Pluto Midheaven is an encounter with the ‘devil’ or what is called the ‘anti-Christ’. Also danger from dictators or severe authoritarians. Strong projections of guilt or shame, blame, manipulating others behavior. The higher octave is selfless wisdom compassion for all, seeking solutions that offer the most for the many. Pluto is the alchemy of forgiveness, letting go and letting ‘God’, moving on to what one ought to be doing. A sense of ‘duty’, ‘dharma’, truth and right work freeing spirit and soul creativity, joy, fellowship.

Moon/Neptune together is Pisces portends then of many a spiritual experience as well as many a mistake on perceptions of what’s happening, what’s up. None-the-less, many a spiritual and inner to inner encounter happening around this time, and times to come. Perhaps ‘The Second Coming of Christ’ in the Etheric as Rudolf Steiner predicted, is activated this winter and coming months, years.

With Venus in Sagittarius nearing opposition to North Node in Gemini, many serious spiritually minded love connection for better futures being made.

This Jupiter and Saturn conjunct in Aquarius will have a serious effect on social cultural trends, mind sets, soul moods, and spirited happenings. Strong lasting effects for coming months, coming years.

I feel it important to be somewhat well versed in spiritual virtue minded teachings of HP Blavatsky’s Theosophy, Rudolf Steiner’s Anthroposophy, Tibetan Buddhism via Gelek Rimpoche, Dalai Lama, Geshe Keltsang Gyatso. Also Manly Hall, Neo-Platonism, Hermetics, Yoga, Meditation, Breathwork. Such teachings will help prepare ones mind soul heart to deal with challenges and opportunities ahead of us.

“We can note that a materialistically or monistically minded person, although knowing nothing of this experience, does have this fear in face of the spiritual world in the depths of his soul. There lives in such a person a certain antipathy to confronting the abyss that must be crossed; and to help him get past this fear, this anxiety in the soul in face of the spiritual world, the monist or materialist thinks out his theories and denies the spiritual world; this denial is nothing other than a self-induced anesthesia in face of his fear. This is the real explanation for materialism. As unsympathetic as it may sound, for one who knows the soul it is evident that in a meeting of materialistic monists, or those who deny soul and spirit, there prevails only the fear in the face of the spiritual world. One could say mockingly that fear-mongering is the basis of materialism, and although it is mocking it is nevertheless true. In materialistic literature, in the materialistic world conception, the spiritual investigator recognizes everywhere between the lines fear and anxiety in face of the spiritual world. What in ordinary life appears as materialism, however, as the soul condition present when a person is a materialist or a materialistically tinged monist, can also be present when a person arrives through definite measures at a certain spiritual vision. One can go through certain exercises in the soul and develop thereby from a more-or-less unhealthy soul condition to a more-or-less spiritual comprehension, yet one need not come by this means to a real understanding of the nature of the spiritual world. In a certain way one can carry up into the spiritual something of this fear about which one knows nothing, which has already been characterized and which underlies the materialistically minded person in the ordinary world.

If one does not grasp this connection, one can carry up into the spiritual world something that is terribly widespread in ordinary life: the love of ease of thinking, the love of ease of feeling. Fear is closely akin to love of ease, to clinging to habit. Why is man afraid of changing his situation? Because he loves his ease and comfort. This love of ease is closely related to fear. We have already described the basis for hatred; in the same way one can also say that lassitude, love of ease, are closely related to fear. One can, however, carry this love of ease up into the spiritual world. No one ought to object that human beings show no evidence of fear or love of ease, for this is again characteristic; it is characteristic that the ordinary mood of soul knows nothing of these things rooted in the subconscious. If man carries fear into the spiritual world, already having developed to the point of acknowledging the spiritual world, then an error arises in a spiritual region, an error that is extraordinarily important to consider the leaning toward phenomenalism.

People who become subject to this leaning become, rather than spiritual investigators, “specter-seers” (to express it crassly), those who see ghosts (Gespensterschauer); they become possessed by a leaning toward phenomenalism. This means that they want to see the spiritual world in the same way as the sense world is to be seen; they do not want to perceive spiritual facts, spiritual beings, but something similar to the beings that the sensory eye can behold. In short, instead of spirits they want to behold specters, ghosts. The error of spiritualism (this is not to say that all spiritualism is unjustified) consists of this leaning toward phenomenalism. Just as the ordinary, everyday materialist wants to see only matter everywhere and not the spirit behind matter, so does he who brings to the spiritual world the same soul condition that actually exists in materialism want to see everywhere only ghostlike, condensed spirits.

This is one dangerous extreme of error that can emerge. One must say that this tendency to carry the ordinary field of consciousness up into the super-sensible field of consciousness exists in the widest circles, even among those who fully recognize a “spiritual world” and want “proof” of a spiritual world. The error here, however, lies in considering a proof valid only if it takes place in the realm of phenomenalism; it lies in considering that everything should be like condensed ghosts. Here something arises that was called in the beginning of our study a stupor, losing consciousness in relation to the spiritual world.”

~Rudolf Steiner, Errors in Spiritual Investigation, Meeting the Guardian of the Threshold March 6, 1913.

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.
