SO i was reading this story recently that said that hoarders might be FAR more numerous than previously thought. Up to five percent of the population, apparently. I find this genuinely freaky – yes being a decluttering maniac has drawbacks, sometimes i go too far but if you wonder which extreme is worse, just google-image “hoarders.” Or see the article.
But anyway, 5% is insane, it could also be a Sun Sign…? And if so, which one would be most prone to hoard? I have my suspicions but don’t want to put ideas into your head before you comment.
They say that these poor people get WORSE in hard economic times, in which case Pluto in Capricorn is going to see mountains of crap spill out of chez Hoarder. It’s actually a health risk and dangerous, i may sometimes give furniture away and then think oh shit, i do need a sofa BUT at least cats won’t get lost in my house. Piles of ancient magazines won’t spontaneously combust and Qi will flow freely.
My friend the Heidi-Klum Of Feng Shui are forever plotting to open a sort of Feng Shui/Astrological Swat Team service – we would arrive at dawn or at about the same time as the skip bin. And we would not stop until the entire house was decluttered. The astro of the situation/person would be done during the shredding and binning. Our client would have to sign a contract saying we could throw out whatever we thought appropriate. There would be swift changes in peeps lives – due to the sudden surge of Qi being released, there would be tears, there would be lecture-rants about Pluto, Saturn and the Age of Eight. I
t would be amazing. The problem is that it would be us x 14 hours each (we would not stop until the job was done, we would be like the Marines of Feng Shui and Astrology) so the cost would be prohibitive AND the people who most need it would be the kind who would argue and whine over having even one grungy old bit of crap taken out. Plus the neighbours would think you a major stoner due to all the heady mugwort fumes as we psychically fumigated the place.
But seriously, hoarders – w.t.f. ??? What sign? You? If so please follow unclutter Guru Karen Kingston immediately (and me - i want more Twitter followers!) and then get started tonight. There is honestly NO better time than the shadow of an Eclipse in Scorpio to get rid of some crap…more on this in my special “colonic”* edition of the Daily Mystic email coming up to subscribers in seven hours time.
* not recommending an actual colonic as such, it is a metaphor.
