Obligatory Cleaning or Sacred Cleansing?

Miles Aldridge

I blame my Mars in Virgo but I love cleaning.  Or my umpteen planets in Pisces? Yes, Pisces. And the people I know are neatly divided into two camps:

Group One:

Those who loathe cleaning, bitch entertainingly about hating it, dread it and/or have even mounted a fairly spirited feminist argument against it. eg; that it saps their creativity.

Group Two:

Those who love cleaning and have turned the whole thing into a sacred art form that will usually involve some form of ritual candle burning, essential oil spraying, smudging and/or house blessing.

For instance, i was talking to the Piscean Beauty Fanatic the other week and was beside herself with glee as she was about to spend the whole Saturday cleaning. And yes, she does have a life – a business, pole dances & yoga for fitness & does a lot of Reiki/aura-soma style stuff.

I think that it does help if you have any sort of Feng Shui-Geomancy-Sacred Space style belief system. So you’re not just cleaning, you are instilling sparkling fresh Qi into your home environment, sorting your life (symbolically) as you sort your shite and setting your mind at ease.

But weirdly, the Solar Virgoans (sun sign virgo) seem to often resent it – it’s Moon in Virgo that gets off on it i.m.o.

Pisceans who have an ill-deserved slovenly reputation in astrology are often completely into zooshing up their environment & can happily compulsively clean for hours in between bouts of debauch. Same with Libra. I think because Pisceans are magical thinkers and Librans love scented symmetry.

Taureans and Cancerians would rather cook than clean – if you’ve really done a decent job sacred cleansing, there’s no WAY you want to stuff up the kitchen a.k.a. symbolic gleaming abundance pod.  Aries & Gemini clean if there is a mission/reason to do so.

I suspect Leos & Capricorns to be naturally slovenly and deep down feel strongly that there ought to be Help. Good Help to slink around with white gloves dusting & offering to fetch the Leo/Cap a glass of champagne from the fridge that Good Help has just disinfected and vanilla-wiped.

Virgos often also hoard, the enemy of a clean and uncluttered space unless it’s something like bulk loo paper. ie; practical.

I think Sagg & Aquarius avoid it along the lines of some obscure tribe in Woop-Woop don’t do it as it is actually considered more cosmic to just sort of let dust evolve in its own style, dust being also an aspect of the cosmos…the particles that are us one moment are also the dust the next, quantum meta-physics and all…the Sagg once showered in a shithole on top of a barge in Borneo so is  not concerned with a mild “ring” around the bath now because that’s your shit. Aquarius can also mount a reasonable Zen argument on top of all this.

There you have it; Pisceans & Librans clean for leisure, to sacredly space out, sort the Feng and settle their minds.  Am I right or am I wrong?

This is an old old post but it’s Virgo Full Moon and my Virgo Mars in 8th is feeling it! I have been cleaning the whole day. I love it, and I’m also a manic declutterer. Getting rid of any piece of paper that has become irrelevant (the older the better) as soon as possible is the best feeling in the world. Recycling, taking the trash out, taking stuff to the flea market… Virgo minimalism. Actually I know a Virgo Sun who confessed getting satisfaction out of watching cleaning product commercials, where they just wipe a dirty surface and TADAH… Read more »

Oh gosh! That’s so funny, I’m a Leo and my bf’s a Cap, and we always argue about who’s turn it is to clean (being the female, usually mine- I am a Leo, meaning I’m the only one who can do it right teehee). Once it’s clean, it takes about 3 hrs to get it just as messy as it ever was.

You are right on the money here Mystic. I am Pisces sun with Virgo moon. I do all that you said – toxic free, essential oils, the whole mystical space cleansing vibe and decluttering to the maxxxx! I feel utterly freaked out by other people’s crap and mess, and if my own space is untidy I cannot even think!

Sooo fuqin right. Sun Pisces, Moon Gemini, rising Cancer. All this seems to lead up to anal-retentive domestic chores. I like everything dust and stain (omg, especially stain) free, and if I have nothing to do I will organize and reorganize and reorganize. It feels like going over the clutter in my own head and I feel all the more efficient and clean and productive for it. I am currently in the middle of reorganizing my wardrobe for the umpteenth time, and I’m still looking forward to cleaning the house tomorrow. Oh, and I live with a Leo, Cap, and… Read more »

Seething resentment -tick. Feminist rationalisations – tick. I have a virgo sun, cancer moon. I hoard and I hoard and when I throw things out I always, always regret it so I am never throwing out another book or letter, ever. I do try to keep things a little under control and I really enjoy those 20 seconds after finishing cleaning when the house is still, well, clean, but I also enjoy peering into webs and feeling joy that the spiders are eating the pesky flies and I have a kind of weird fascination with our bathroom which is seriously… Read more »

Well here is my two cents…….. Recently moved in with three roommates. Capricorn man, Pisces man, Aries woman and I am a Leo. Me and the Cap are always cleaning up after the Pisces and Aries. The Cap man mops the floors – on his own – at least once a week. The Aries has been kicked out of the house now because she is so filthy dirty. She goes into the kitchen and leaves food ALL over – on the floor, counters, in the sink. Same with the bathroom, tissue roll seems too explode all over the room while… Read more »

Think though that I fall somewhere between group one and two as really would rather not clean if possible (in a truly sacred world)…but since I have to, will make the best of it.

Cleaning services. Sigh. After 2nd bub, had a series of cleaners. The first pair insisted on using their own mop and other tools. I was grossed out that my floors may be infected with other ppls filth, so no way. The second pair with a Bosnian refugee couple with little English but boy could they clean, they actually took my kitchen windows out to clean them and all the screens. They were also adoring to my kids and bought them b’day gifts. Later, as kids a bit older and not breastfeeding etc decided to do it again myself. That lasted… Read more »

I can’t operate in mess. Both of my parents are hoaders, especially my mother, and I find it repulsive in some way. When my marriage broke down, i couldn’t even stay with my mother because both spare rooms were full of stuff, and i mean full. We’ve had so many arguments about it. At one point I counted 18 chairs in her house, but no-one ever came to visit because the place was so uncomfortable. She was unable to cook because every available surface in the kitchen was stacked with crockery, none of which was ever used. And all the… Read more »

Just two days ago cleared the energy in the house with a ritual and LOVE a clean house. Periodically clear out half my possessions too.

I like things to look clean but hate doing it myself. Cleaning in this case does not equal organised; more like throwing things in draws, cupboards, etc. Virgo sun, Aries moon – go figure.

You’re right about those Virgo moon’s though – they are the super narky ones. That goes for hygeine, health, habits and of course, grammar. I’ve yet to meet a Virg Moon who isn’t super manicured & perfectionist-ed.

Lovely Leo bf is Pisces rising, Virgo Moon – and is forever whipping out the vacuum cleaner (“It only takes a minute!”) He is very ‘place for everything, & everything in its place”.

With my Cancer rising I would ALWAYS rather cook than clean. I do like a clean bathroom though, and am careful to keep it that way.

spot on once again Magic Mystic!! i’m Virgo moon and i don’t exactly go in search of cleaning and do a lot less than i used to think necessary, but when i do it, i find it immensely satisfying.

and with Toro sun and Cancer rising, love cooking but especially like people to enjoy eating!

and yes my Leo HMBOTS with virgo rising and scorp moon always has a ‘my man’ for this job or ‘my woman’ for that job well organised for anything that he doesn’t fancy doing himself and has a knack of getting peeps doing things for him!

I definitely need a clean workspace but in the midst of big projects i can barely find my chair under the paperwork. cleaning at home revolves on a cycle I haven’t figured out (nor tried to figure out). i am clean, crisp and de-cluttered, then it builds up and up…then cleaning binge again. I am not a regular cleaner but I am a thorough cleaner. Except the kitchen: must be sparkling all the time (makes cooking more efficient and keeps the insects away). I HATE clutter and having food, cups, papers, dirty plates on the bench, anywhere. I need immaculate… Read more »

should add though that this is all self motivated- ie, i dont consider it ‘housework’, or part of any general division of labour in household. the second that guilt or obligation or pressure comes into play then my whole vibe with cleaning changes. will happily keep the place looking/feeling clean, but not because someone else tells me i should.

I do enjoy cleaning but it has to be on my own terms. Not because I’ve been guilted or shamed into it in which case cleaning is a very angry activity. But the fact that I can be guilted or shamed into it does suggest that i don’t do it often enough. My leo husband and I have very different philosophies about housework. His general idea is that there should be no clutter – nothing out of place – bare benches no paperwork on tables etc. This would be fine if everything had a place to go but invariably when… Read more »

Greetings, Ms Mystic. Well, my mother (Libran) loves to keep things clean and tidy. In fact, the night my Libran father died, she came home and cleaned the bath! However, her sister (Piscean) believes in only cleaning to keep things a step above botulism central. Two more different characters you cannot imagine. BTW – they are living in the Piscean’s house at present and I think my Libran mother is about to throw up!!!

My saggy Dad is fond of telling everyone that I clean my house twice a year, whether it needs it or not. Absolutely right. It’s usually when visitors are coming to stay. I have learned over the years to keep the “public” spaces reasonably tidy, so they only need a quick attack if someone calls round at short notice. I do hoard, but am working on it. Dad is MUCH worse. He has a small house, large garage, huge barn, two sheds and a greenhouse, and you can only just get into the house. The rest are chocka with stuff.… Read more »

Slovenly, never! Can’t bear clutter or dirt. Happiest in clean, beautiful and considered spaces. Random things have appropriate boxes, labelled. And while I don’t really love cleaning, I do get enormous satisfaction from the process of making everything gleaming, gorgeous and organised. Cannot think/function well in visual chaos. Outsourcing not at all appealing, too invasive. Adore cooking.

Just to back up this story, when I moved in with my Ex-Scorp-flatmate I had a revelation re hoarding. she was basically in her early twens, like me at that time.

Although I’m trying to do the sensible sift and sort for day to day ease of functioning, there is the subversive for me anyway side that just wants to cull things down to a level…just the core stuff that means something..as spartan as I get (which still involves texture and mirrors and cut glass but still only the stuff I truly love) .then store it safely in some climate controlled storage and just go overseas for some undetermined time with only hand luggage.

I quite enjoy cleaning and have definitely sublimated it into a spiritual experience (a la Neptune in Scorp in the sixth house) – have been known to wear a tiara while vacuuming, and have mantras about ‘clearing space for miracles’ while I work. and in true taurean style will reclaim my territory with a good house-clean after someone has been staying with us, or when someone with quite negative vibes has been in the house.

Cleaning is the devil’s work and I totally resent it. Yes, because it cramps my creativity. However, I loathe filth and clutter more, so I do it and do it well.

My Virgo mother, however, who I think has Pisces moon (no birth time) quite happily hoards vast amounts of useless crap, that is crammed all around her house, with a myriad of naff ornaments.
