Get Your Capricorn Hat Back On

MEMO FROM THE MOON IN CAPRICORN:

You can stop all that snivelling about how you wish every weekend was a long one and why did you eat so much shit food when you know perfectly well that the latter was due to lack of self-control (again) and that if you added up all the hours you spend actually being productive instead of faffing about than you probably do not really have much of a work week at all.

To Do: Keep a time sheet and account for every minute of the day. Seriously, you might be surprised. Whilst you are thinking in terms of “measurement”, keep a similar record of kilojoules and money. Yes, it’s called a budget and while you’re at it, has it occurred to you that meal planning might actually decrease your intake of crap kilojoules AND needless expenditure? How do you think Capricorns/Saturn Peeps embody thin and rich?

If the atmosphere seems slightly austere, it’s probably (a) due to your hangover from carbophilia, alcohol or vengeful emo because you do not properly calibrate the Venus-Pluto vibes and (b) Pluto stationing retrograde in Capricorn and Saturn going back into Virgo. All of your so-called problems can be solved with some proper record-keeping, budgeting and a food diary.

Eat clean, work hard and greet any adversity with aristocratic indifference/beautiful manners,

Regards,

The Moon in Capricorn

I don’t want to go back to Capricorn. I am marching forward to my natal sign of Taurus. I am putting on my Taurus helmet and armor.

niice!! does a taurus need armour? I thought they proceeded relentlessly, regardless of obstacles and potential cuts, bruises and scratches

No, we don’t NEED the armor. But it sure scares the crap out of the enemy. Not that we’re not capable of that all by ourselves. Our imposing physical presence can only be enhanced by such a glorious and fearsome set of armor plates. Our powerful motions are not hindered in the least by a heavy escutcheon. Ow, these zori sandals are just not suitable for battle! Now where did my servant go?

Charles, I thought scaring frenemies was what your awesome horns are for. I have met many a bull with their horns hard and ornery, coupled with a red stare and let me tell you, it has me looking for my own armor to hide under!

Charles

Once you are similarly armored, with your body’s weak spots protected, perhaps we can face each other on the field of battle, knowing we are each invulnerable. And perhaps then, we can even sit down and talk, which would be really nice, because with all this extra weight from the armor, my feet are killing me!

Dear Mystic, How does one properly calibrate venus-pluto vibes when (a) none of my friends were available to go out with (or even LIKE going out for that matter) and (b) the only current male interest is on the other side of the world for a week. I felt completely stymied. All my efforts at going UP and AT ‘EM, and I was keen, just completely fizzed. Anyone got any advice? I am shite at doing venus. I think venus hates me. 🙁 signed, depressed lonely pisces. Not even my Moon in Cap could get me out of this one.

Oh Dear UP, of course Venus doesn’t hate you!

In what house does your Venus reside in your birth chart and what aspects does she make there? And which house is she transiting at the moment for you? Lets start there for some insights and a fresh perspective.

Aside from a fresh calibration of your Venus astro, I suggest also contmeplating the concept of resilience, especially in relation to not-getting-what-we-want. That is my theme for this week, I’m happy to share it with you!

Once you have an answer – can you tell me? I have never had good luck with Venus. I don’t think she hates me – I just don’t register for her AT ALL! I’m saving up for the Venus consult with Mystic – but to be honest, even the PeachBlossom remedy doesn’t do anything for me…. I figure I’m a lost cause…. now if only my friends would stop trying to get me to go on-line or speed dating. So not my style (but fully respect the many people I know who have had magnificent success with this).

Gosh UP, I would give anything for an elegant and classical Cappy Moon, I am certain Venus being so very Taurean would be wonderfully harmonious with you…

Ah, you know what Nat – there was a Moon-Pluto shitzone on Monday too, that does tend to cast me into the depths. I don’t know what else was going on before that tho. Nothing jumped out at me when i checked out transiting planets on Astro. Maybe i was just having a rough weekend.

And thanks fire Trine, that’s a nice thing to bear in mind

Nat – I have venus in aries in my 10th . In my chart it sextiles Mars and my Asc, trines Neptune. Squares my moon. Venus is only just lurking into Taurus now but still in my 10th. Maybe it’s not venus. to be honest it felt more like saturn crap – limits everywhere I go and they’re all because of my actions/lack of! agh.

love to hear more about your philosophy of ‘not getting’, if you have the time/inclination. xox

OK UP, I offer the following things to ponder re Venus and You: * Venus interpretations are a lot broader than whether you happen to be pulling a Man/Root at the moment or not. She rules other wonderful things such as beautification, establishing values, the kind of resources that you magnetically attract (rather than those that you earn via offical hard slog), harmony, negotiations, and how you approach your female energy. I reckon it is very worthwhile exploring those broader themes in your life at this point. Write each of those themes on a separate piece of paper and jot… Read more »

Hey there UP Quick thought from me reading about your Venus. It’s an ultra masculine positioning that your venus has there. You have her in Aries (ruled by Mars) in the 10th house (ruled by Saturn) both really masculine energies – plus she sextiles natal Mars. I reckon your Venus is a boy. Maybe if you start to think of her as a beautiful, androgynous, gentle and whimsical young man you might find it easier to communicate with her / him. Your Venus is the soft shadow side of the raging warrior. The sensitivity within the blokey butch. The nurturing… Read more »

oh my goodness. Nat what an effort, thank you SO much. i wasn’t expecting such an amazing reply. I will definitely take note of your comments, do some homework and come back brighter. it’s not so much about pulling for me. Well, maybe it is at the moment, have regained a lot of confidence and am testing the waters – as I am often ridiculously shy, I took some opportunities to see if it is easier for me to approach someone, who i like the look of, etc. (and it is!) Had a few realisations over the weekend about relating,… Read more »

No problem U*P*. I hope something in there might help you to find a new way of looking at your Venus. There are many ways to express our feminine energy. I too take the bolt from wimmyns groups, eeeeep! I missed a really obvious Venus theme above: Creativity. It might be time to express your creativity in a new way and through this you may free up other Venus energies. We can get very stuck (and lazy) about the creative of ourselves but it never fails to bring good things. I just looked up one of my fav’ astro books… Read more »

Well, I kinda just went Cap all Easter (with Cap Sun, Merc, Venus) and i completely avoided chocolate/ alc/ partying and therefore subsequent guilt. I mainly spent time re-writing work stuff, cleaning my study and then lay about reading newspapers and watch French films. Felt fabulous. Ooh and I did a spot of gardening, re-potting plants that the bush turkeys decided to play football with. And then I realised how useless long weekends are. They just mean traffic is crap and ppl are away when you need them and certain shops aren’t open. And boyfriend is home for 4 whole… Read more »

I hadn’t the slightest interest in chocolate this easter too. I even tried to gorge on it and got through nothing more than 2 mini eggs.
Thought I was being all grinchy, maybe just Cappy.

Hehehe – I was totally Cappy. Had choc on Sat, but found it boring (?). Ate well all weekend. Hung out with friends yesterday and helped them built the Taj Majal of Vege Patches (she totally happy to dig a hole, stick some punnets in, and hope for the best – he designed, redesigned, re-aligned, went to class and basically built a temple). I however wheelbarrowed 2 ton of dirt, created a Greek feast for lunch, doled out regular doses of Rose, and swung around on the end of the mallet for entertainment…. Bliss. Not sure how a long weekend… Read more »

I caught Sea-Goat fever for the past 2 weeks. I’ve been good on my diet and exercise; working like crazy to get that cheddar; and tucking some of it away. Why just the other day i walked past a lovely carrot cake that always loves to whisper to me sweet nothings, to which i replied, “nah”. Desserts have temporarily lost their sway on this Libra. Too bad, I’m still mooning over exes. 🙁 At least i can be distracted by work life.

Exactly! It’s the perfect weight loss regimen! Depressed and too busy= No extra eating! Plus I’ve got Venusian proportions. Even if i starve I’ll still be curvy.

approaching from a couple of angles – perhaps I really can have it all? secured 4 day work week for the foreseeable future just prior to Easter break, ran off to my forest by the beach with a bunch of lovely peeps for hangover fuel, now TOTALLY feeling the Cap Moon vibe and giving the Nest, food reality and fridge a once over before bunking off to Sydvegas for a few days. I figure the moon will be in something else by then . . .

“Greet any adversity with aristocratic indifference/beautiful manners” I soo want to BE above and beyond stuff currently. I got sick over Easter, just like I always do when I get into stuff with the sis (CancerSunLeoRisingLeoMOon). She is so noir, she only wears black, even in summer. She dresses her baby in neutral tones.

I don’t just want to act indifferent, I want to BE indifferent! How does one coax oneself into feeling LESS?

I will be comatose thanks very much. Won’t even lift my head to contemplate my belly button, too much trouble if you ask me. Eyes to ceiling in prolonged shavasana…prone is the way to be. To be honest, my coma was a credit coma .. promptly followed by deeply paranoid security mongering Cap thoughts, which I have now ridden out to a reckoning.
