Hey, okay!  I HAVE gotten a few complaints from people who think the Sun Tzu question and answers in the Oracle are actual war-mongering but in general, people seem happy with an Oracle answer that provides ancient Chinese warlordly advice that is (a) synchronistic and (b) can be adapted to work issues, business negotiations, dating even. So okay, Sun Tzu stays. Happy?

AND the Daily Mystic email just sent out has details on the epic biz date, as promised. It IS taken into account in the horoscopes but no harm in spelling it out. It’s not like we’re going to be swarming Mars in Scorpio like we’re desperate or anything, right? RIGHT?

  1. Those people who don’t like Sun Tzu can just not use that question. Ta da. everybody happy. Seriously my Libra Sun likes the inclusion of a masculine answer when i seek it. It honors yang when there is already a lot of yin on there. Besides, anybody who has read my posts for a while knows love is war, at least for me. Maybe for you other people, it’s some hippie flower crown affair complete with amethyst enema.

    • You crack me up EEL! … yeah stuff those hippies with their amethyst enemas! Love is a battlefield. Pat Benetar said so.

    • Actually I kind of am fascinated by the idea of an amethyst enema, sounds amazing lol!!

      Quite shocked someone would ask MM to remove a question from her Oracle, that is really stepping over the line imo.

      • I bet they’d be super cleansed. Just make sure to use smooth tumbled amethyst. ;p

        As an artist, I think it’s the highest compliment to have someone freak out over your work. Mystic is a genius, because not only does it give a more masculine flavour, but he was also a person of colour. If you’ve done any serious martial arts, you probably had The Art of War as an assignment to read as well as Book of 5 rings.

  2. For me too. It’s such a fresh approach!

    Yesterday I got:
    Violent language and driving forward as if to attack are signs that is will retreat.
    For romance…!
    Well he wasn’t using violent language but this really opened my eyes

  3. Really. Mars in Scorp. We all need the reset.

    Haven’t asked anything romance related but my queries re neighbors and work have all been enlightening. Sometimes more because I’m discovering aspects of my mind I’ve let go soft. Farewell reactive brain! Hello active brain!

  4. Sheesh! You start developing abstract thinking skills around 16-19. Take a paradigm from one arena of life and apply to (your/the) pertinent situation. Easy as 3.141529

  5. Hm, sounds like fighting dirty and nothing I could ever get away with. I can see how more peaceful or honest types would find that to be offensive even trashy advice. Still, it’s refreshing and at the very least hilarious. I’d probably follow it if, as mentioned before, I could pull it off.

  6. I love the Sun Tzu Q. People who think it promotes actual war-mongering are BATS. You must get the most hilarious emails Mystic!

    Besides, you might have some actual Generals/Military types as subscribers, so there.

  7. RE: a biz query

    “When envoys are sent with compliments in their mouths, it is a sign that the enemy wishes for a truce.”

    So on point!

    I love it, and honestly, not all the questions are to my taste. I just don’t use the ones that don’t vibe with me :)

  8. Be careful not to take Sun Tzu literally – yes it talks about ‘war’ but really it is all about strategy and being efficient and SMART – advice on managing situations that can be applied to ALL facets of life. It also talks about WIN-WIN situations. Look deeper peeps …

    • Exactly. Most of the time, I use the Sun Tzu option the most. I find it is my favorite question to ask.

  9. LOVE it.

    I now have “Keep your plans dark and impenetrable as the night. When the time is right, fall like a thunderbolt” written on my fridge in YSL Bleu Majorelle

    and thank you mystic for the latest Daily. So relevant i could scream. I have my “fall like a thunderbolt” time.

    • Mine only ever blabs on about salt marshes … and I get told off for asking about the Ex all the time. Oh well … :roll:

      • Oh I got the salt marshes one too… About a complex family issue that has a ‘long tail’ and that I have been avoiding for emotional reasons, among others, but primarily emotional…. I took this as a prompt to pause, dig a bit deeper, be braver and engage the Capricorn Moon, and just fricken forge on towards the finish line don’t look down don’t look back. Am part way there… X

  10. tbh, war strategy feels like what I need atm, Mars is kicking my ARSE on it’s way out of Libra….ouch :(

  11. I love the Sun Tzu! It inspired me to purchase a copy of The Art of War. Who wouldn’t like it??? Very poetic and helpful.

  12. I’ve been digging the Sun Tzu answers
    Got this gem
    Like… a smart warrior will not fight a walled city

  13. Are you kidding, it’s a no-brainer that it’s a keeper! I employed advice from ‘The Art of War’ against Qi Vampire Muggled colleagues that were causing major problems at my previous job in 2013 with BRILLIANT results, I might add!

  14. Yes, keep Sun Tzu Oracle. It’s the best. A tool and its use reflects the user not the tool don’t you think perhaps?
