The Saturn-Pluto Spa Experience

Filed in ASTROLOGY

girl in spa at volcano

One seriously has to chill the fuq out today even if the atmosphere is tres intense, courtesy of Pluto zapping out cuck00-bats rays of potentially psycho-goo dimensions.

Yes, Pluto is stationing retrograde as Saturn sits opposite the Zero Aries point, not exactly conducive to patience but totally brilliant for clarity IF you can avoid the lower-Plutonic crap…You know, obsessive thinking, letting yourself heap extra import onto things that aren’t really that vital, sleeping with private detectives in exchange for info re your a.w.o.l. almost-lover — I just had an e-mail from someone asking if i thought that was a good idea.

So hang out in the Saturn-Pluto Spa instead. It IS on top of a volcano neatly concealed by the glacial ice on top (the lava is what heats the warm pool) but never mind all that for now. Just secure your  your composure, superior hygiene and excellent hair.  Note Mars IS still in Leo.

Maybe I will pick him up at the airport and take him to the bank!
And maybe I WILL have that ” are you going to continue to be part of the problem or part of the solution?” conversation…….. calmly….or not.. or just smile in a benign sort of way, be very tolerant and vigorously wave him off when he disapears again

I got a call today from the sperm donor to say he’s flying in at 8am tomorrow. Last phonecall was on my fishbabies birthday to tell him he was flying up that night..no show or call. The time before that was Christmas and he did the very same thing. My son has just two weeks ago been diagnosed with a learning disorder, ( auditory processing defecit on top of a high IQ) The new house move and new schoool brought on high anxiety and shutdown in the classroom and now we are weaving through behaviour probs and angry emotional outbursts.… Read more »

Sounds heavy Vee. Keep your head up and like Mystic says, maybe some Saturn girl strength and time to pull the draw brigdes up around you and your family. xxx

Lots of good advice here.

I’m skulking and putting all my energy into the not freaking out bit. It’s going well, thank-you.

TA & SPAMLR – More big hugs from me … it’s all very Phoenix-like really. Good advice from everyone … consolidate your mental resources and come out fighting, but be strategic about it… just do something, don’t be paralysed into inaction by the immensity of it – you can deal with it. xxx

Pluto can deliver positive changes too. I just received word today that some conflict resolution efforts I’d been making to rebuild an extremely damaged relationship between a vulnerable relative and their bullying parent has shown signs of hope. I don’t for a minute think it’s any form of resolution, but it’s a major breakthrough in an enormously painful situation I was ready to write off.

From experience, Pluto isn’t all doom. It can deliver some profound and positive changes.

And I would be the Poster Child of that. Yes, it razes you to the ground to build you back up again.

Even if the building up doesn’t necessarily mean anything will be smelling like roses. More like fruitful ripe compost. You have to stand the stench to get to the good stuff.

What a shit day. Out of the blue on Friday I was informed I will be in court again next Monday, sans lawyers or any independent legal advice at all this time. Perhaps might be better for me not having anyone prejudice my case this time around. But WTF??? How can the ex enrol my daughter in prep at a private girls school for next year (without my knowledge), and yet won’t accept the fact that he has any financial responsibilities to support his children for the basics. And he is going for 50/50. I will be heartbroken. Also, I… Read more »

Wow, SPAMLR that does sound harsh. I think we’re all copping it right now, I’m going to send good vibes for both you and TA and hope that all will be well.

In fact, we have to think that all will be well. We can’t afford not to.

Have you tried the Women’s legal service?

Thanks, I have just come from an hour and a half session with the Women’s Legal Service here. So much better than trying to deal with Legal Aid. And actually the first people to tell me exactly what my rights and entitlements are after all this time. Not so easy hearing that we mothers have so fewer entitlements in separation than we did a few years ago, but hopefully the new studies will show that 50/50 is not always the best scenario, especially in cases like mine with DV. The solicitor basically said, I am on my own, get independent,… Read more »

Hugs, love and light to you, SPAMLR. If its any help or relief, the family court are quite cluey and if your ex is asking for just ludricous, crazy stuff like you mentioned, they see straight through it. I found them to be quite understanding and on my side. Ex was asking for crazy stuff as well, like 50/50 but not wanting to pay SCA or childcare fees etc standing up in court saying Im an alcho, mentally ill person who cant look after our child but he cant have him….they just told him to sit down and shut up… Read more »

I’ve never felt so low…yesterday DLE initiated Family Court proceedings against me to take my (four) children from Thurs through Monday every week… he also wants the children to be evaluated for their psychological wellbeing as he alleges I abuse them. All the advice I have says that he will win as the family court is now operating with the ideal of fathers having their kids 50% of the time. I can’t believe I’ve struggled through the last 7 years in poverty (for the most part), totally vulnerable, only to have DLE snatch my family away from me now that… Read more »

Love & strength to you TA. I’m with Mystic, don’t go visualising worst case scenarios just yet (or at all). This will take TIME to play out and you don’t know what turns it will take along the way. Don’t under-estimate your own abilities to participate in this process successfully. I know it must be a fearful time but please do not allow yourself to be paralysed by fear or become stuck in those feelings of victimisation because they will limit you. You must have a plan to get yourself through this, one bit at a time. Steel up and… Read more »

Oh, TA. My heart goes out to you. You’re an amazing mother, even a blind man can see that. But apparently not the hard hearted. I’m sorry but I am with VenusAGG and will a-go-go with her to beat the living daylights out of his sorry puny penis’d ass…I know it’s hard to keep the faith during times like this, when it feels like your entire life is being pulled out from under you, but those children are YOUR life, and even someone like me who is ten thousand miles away can see that. Of course, your heart will grieve… Read more »

Take heart, TA. Your kids will pass those evaluations with flying colours. There has also been a fair bit of talk in the media about the Howard gov. legislation and how it hasn’t been so successful. I would say moves are afoot to amend it. Also, I can’t imagine the court not taking into account the DLE’s failure to pay maintenance for however many years. That putz. Surely the courts will take the children’s wishes into account as well. Don’t freak out yet. As nat says, get a strategy going and fight like Lilith with PMT during a chocolate drought.… Read more »

thanks Uber, Angel, Nat, Venus… I appreciate your support and kind words… I will indeed pull myself together and defend my children… I started out the day determined to make this an opportunity to get what they need from their father, but I fell into a heap when I realised what I’ll be missing if they DO get it. *sigh*… time to go meditate I believe. xxx

My bestie went through similar situation in the last couple of years. His lawyers and money beat hers. It was gut wrenching stuff, I assured her that it would be all Disney until he realised what he’d gotten himself into re responsibility and reality of parenting. He got his way initially but could not keep it up. The kids found out who Dad really was and all eventually decided they preferred Mum. At twelve they can decide for themselves if they want to go or not. Once the older child didn’t want to go, the others followed suit. Now he… Read more »

How do I get there now please?

I fervently wish to be there. I just need to chill. A warm floaty chill would be the best kind.
I am currently thinking about playing hooky and going down to the penisula hot springs… looking at my diary, I should be able to do that at some point in May without coming back to a fiery ball of burning mess and other things being on fire.

Andrew’s right. I’ve been to onsen like this in Japan in midwinter, and the water is so hot, you stay warm for ages after you get out, even naked and in freezing conditions. A lot of onsens and bath houses in Japan also have a cold bath which you get into straight out of the hot one. It doesn’t feel cold at all.

That photo is heaven!

There was lovely spa in the Andes that I used to visit with friends and there was hot rock pool outside each cabin.
Not as lovely as Japan but, good golly, a few champers and a soak in a hot spring at night with a full moon glowing on the rolling Andean cordillera – at that altitude can make life seem crazy fun!

I’m trying not to get too paranoid about it. Pluto and natal Saturn are at 0 degrees conjunct right now … and it seems like they will be FOREVER!

I think my Pluto is in the destruction phase. Clearing out some the BS in my life that needed to be purged so I can move on. But it’s been emotional hell. Right now I’m just licking my wounds. Not feeling any personal power. Is there personal power with this combination? Please, give me some hope David!

davidl

definitely, to me a conjunction of these 2 is one of the only times they aren’t conflicting, their joining forces. Im not sure but I think I might be in for another conj later as this retro phase may have put them back behind the conj point again, my saturn is in cap, is yours there or in late virgo ?
In my experience the conj definitely bought an end to a pretty long phase of endings, and then gave me an incredible new opportunity (business) that has kept me going for months.

Yes, my Saturn is in Cap. at 5 degrees, 3rd house, right at the cusp of the IC and the 4th house. Amazing how you know this!!! In Sept. 2007 I took a job that I loved. It was just as Saturn moved into Virgo and opposed my Sun in Pisces. Saturn was in my 7th House (partnerships). Saturn hit me hard in my work partnership, fortunately not marital (I think). From the moment I started working there I had bad, dark, paranoid vibes from my immediate supervisor who happened to be the director of the whole place (my Scorp… Read more »

andrew, I would love to have a spa called Persephone and cook up all sorts of concoctions to revive one back from the dead… like the volcanic ash body rub, guaranteed to make you rise like a phoenix.

Or our Dark Abduction Therapy which promises you will love light like you never have before.

I may even introduce an Ereshkigal Anger Management Class…which should involve some form of primal screaming a la giving birth in the bowels of hell.

I have been to a few Onsen, not this one, but plenty similar. They are just so beautiful and something I really miss about Japan. I wish I had read this last night (around 11:30) when I decided to send a horrid, ‘one day you should really get it together and be a better person’ text to my Ex. Poo. Overwhelming desire to roast away the dross of our time together. Why did I spend so much time with him? and why did he string me along for 4 years? arrrghhhhhhh.

Hopefully I’ve had all my Pluto action which seemed to hit towards the end of last week. El Double Toro Ex now-friend had to be de-friended due to excessive weirdness that even I couldn’t handle. Leo bestie went absolutely berko at Easter lunch and I’m damn sure it wasn’t the excellent Rogan Josh I cooked, but the two bottles of pink champers she downed on her own. Piscean acquaintence-ish-friend found out intercontinental lover is bigamist with three children – that was after he nearly cleaned out her bank account mind you.

maybe it;s just daylight savings that’s getting you up at 6 prowln? take advantage of it while you can! see how the other half lives (I am on Perth time even though I am on the east coast, if you know what i mean – hard to wake up before 9am even after 9 hours sleep. )
BTW, your friends zone is going mental – is pluto in your 11th or aspecting something friend-related?

prowlncat
prowlncat

good spotting UP. Natally Pluto is in the 5th, but currently residing in the 3rd – BUT making ginormous conjuctions to the 11th and 5th houses. Actually the 11th house is going mental – Saturn and Moon in there aspecting Mercury, Pluto, Jupiter, Neptune and Uranus. And this a big fat arsed triangle between the 11th, 8th and 4th house – what’s the astro terminology for a great big Bermuda Triangle hangin’ over your chart one wonders??
