New Moon In Scorpio Poem

CHANGED

“They said something mean about me

and didn’t notice it was mean.

So my heart wandered

into the rainy night without them

and found a canopy

to hide under.


My eyes started

seeing through things.

Like gauze.

Old self through new self.

My flexible body

went backwards

and forwards

in time.


It’s hard to describe but true:

I grew another head with better ideas

inside my old head.

An alternate scorp poem/silly song has just popped into my head
This little scorp of mine
I’m gonna let it shine
This little scorp of mine I’m gonna let it shine
This little scorp of mine I’m gonna let it shine
Let it shine let it shine let it shine
Ta da!

Mystic, Something told me to check and see if your daily Scopes were up for Tuesday even tho I’d already read Monday’s and it’s still Sunday here in Cali… I’d never felt the need to do that before nor had I ever checked that far in advance. As a matter of fact, with getting your scopes in my inbox, I usually forget all about the daily scopes here on the blog. Was just amazing tho to see that beautiful pix come up after my horse dream last night! In my dream was going down steep, snowy terrain when suddenly I… Read more »

Ha, what a typical kind of astro passage to get a message from the can’t-quite-let-go, cheating SaggEx.

He has Venus/Uranus conj. in Scorp (what WAS I thinking) conj. my Scorp Moon. Well, whatever.

I can’t be bothered answering frankly. He is busy running the business we started together alone. He should do himself a favour and take that white elephant and drown it in the ocean.

Today is the day Neptune march forward, right? Am drained, no make that drenched, in water-themed dreams. The third day and this time I was diving into a city I left years before, turns out ocean gobbled it and I was trying to help. The azure and blue colors distilling sunshine was beautiful. Nice to swim and dive in my dreams, something I can’t do to save my life.

Pisces rising, ruled by Neptune.

I want to marry G Clooney in my dream too. Where is the wait line?

Gosh – everyone seems to be going through some sort of transition towards empowerment! Healings to you Lexicon – the creep will get his – probably when he least expects it. One of my Libran friends is going through some horrible transitioning at the moment – on the cusp of breaking up with her Scorpi boyfriend who has been doing the whole mind-psycho-body-control thing on her for the last six months. Five women have approached me and asked for advice re: how to break up with their partners / husbands amicably in the last two weeks as I’m such a… Read more »

I dreamed I had two rats, they were mine, but I didnt really want them, felt scared of them because they were trying to harm me, that feeling kept escalating to a real sense that they were evil and I was in danger from them, but I couldn’t kill them or get rid of them. Then I found out about a program where you could swap unwanted animals/pets. You were matched with someone and we both signed contracts. It had taken me a while to catch the rats, and I had put then in s plastic bag with a zipper.… Read more »

I should add that before I went to sleep I asked if my as yet not completely resolved intention to walk away from something that has been distressing me but that I have been trying to not walk away from is the best thing to do. That would kind of suggest yes, although it would have been nice if the ending felt more certain, more focused on the dog (easy expression of aspects of ourselves apparently), rather than still worrying about the rats.

shell

Although kind of obvious, rats mean betrayal, a sense of sickness in oneself, disappointment, etc. Growling dogs can also mean betrayal apparently. We swapped betrayals? Nice. Maybe wish I hadn’t started thinking about this now.

Oh and apologizes to the rat owners out there, I’m sure yours are much nicer.

Perhaps the ‘yes’ you were after may have been clearer if the state you were in were clearer too? Sorry to sound so obvious, shell, methinks the dream was a clear reflection of your ambivalence, albeit with a ‘yes’ at the end. You got there at the end though! Feels good, yes…?
And yes, rats are generally very nice companions, very clean and affectionate, though just like any species, you get the ones who are nasty.

shell

yes, you have a point UPV. But you know, it becomes a bit circular, try asking for certainty and you get ‘oh you’re uncertain’. um, yep, knew that….
oh well. i’m sure if i just did something about it it would all be clear….

Yeah, the circular thing, tell me about it… I was thinking it’s par for the course for my circular thingo during Venus rx, spesh as it’s a circular thing re: a person. Sigh…

Whoa! Intense response to a very important question… 😯 So what I took from this is that you want to walk away from something that is quite distressing but you still want to do the right thing? From your dream… I would ask are you worried about that this situation (unresolved?) being replaced with yet another unresolved situation that you’re worried about? it would seem that you don’t get to see the happy outcome of the current situation if you pass it up, can you see your current situation being resolved at all? Continues rambling… 😯 Sometimes we get caught… Read more »

yes worried about the situation, yes unclear whether ‘giving up’ as i call it, is sensible walking away from an untenable/painful situation, or running away (again) from something i dont want to have to deal with. and yes under that concerned that if it is the latter then i just get another round of that ‘lesson’ but in a different format.
It would have been more useful if I wasn’t already acutely aware of all of those layers of worry.
sigh.
Thanks BG.

speaking of the new moon… I wrote out letters, which basically encompassed all the things i wanted to say to peeps i have unresolved emo with, seeing it as a time to let go, also identified in each of these letters, as well as everything i wanted to say to them about bad relations, was realising my own behavious, weaknesses, fears, whatever ya wanna call them, that I want to transcend, transform, change… It was a great process, and i smudged and lit candles (which i rarely do these days) and i already feel a great sense of release, however… Read more »

If it makes you feel more complete, do it. Surely that personal intuition is more important than ‘timing’?

I had a dream about bees and beehives. I was actually sleeping int the dream, but when I woke up there were beehives “Everywhere” in my room! Large ones, small ones, you name it. They were blue and maroon. The room was blue so they sort of fit right in except for the maroon meshed in with them made them stand out. We tried to get them out of the house without disturbing the bees but it was turning out to be quite the task. It was a cool dream with a cool interp. I’m dreaming LOTS now. As for… Read more »

Indeed, Sweetpea, indeed. I have Neptune in Scorp natal branching all over. Sleep has been rather lacking until late, then when I finally nod off while sitting up in studio, dreams keep me busy behind eylids. Working out the daily angst via night fantasias. Psychic recently reminded me to ask for help and guidance before sleep and it would be given, I would sooo rather do it in dreams and wake to a productive day, ya know ? My best to you Lexicon, sending you good vibes. Behavior like that always IS shocking to someone who doesn’t think from creepo… Read more »

So you’re a natal Neptune in Scorp too….In my free time, in between the net, music videos 🙂 and reading my spiritual books again, I’ve been meditating to strenghten ties to Spirit. Using my mind to lift above everything that I’ve allowed (and some things I wasn’t aware I was allowing) to dumb me down. Wow, I was in deep. Realizations literally shifted everything overnight. Am really grateful for that.

Good Sweetpea, so glad to hear it ! I am also studying: astro, tarot, energy healing, numerology etc… I read then make laminated study guides for myself. (is my virgo showing~ha?) I am exploring all the interests I always dreamed of growing up. Amazing what can get by without notice, isn’t it? I am enjoying the change of seasons and all my time alone. I am awaking to many things as well… I have Saturn nearing my MC, Uranus (or as I read the other day, the ‘death-nell’ transit) opposition Uranus, oh and that other thing, Pluto on ASC. ding-dong,… Read more »

Dreamt of Doberman Pinscher’s…

Wiki~

“the breed is well known as an intelligent, alert, and loyal companion dog. Although once commonly used as guard dogs or police dogs, this is less common today”

Feel they were my “guard dogs” in my dream as nothing scary really but have felt lots of protection around me lately. Lot’s of “ah-ha” moments. Like I woke up in the last week or two about many things.

Quite annoyed. Furrowed brow. Upset. Was touched inappropriately from behind by a man on the train. I mean, he didn’t GRAB my boob but touched my chest from reaching behind & asked if I was getting off at a certain station & when I said NO & went off at him he got up & off the carriage & i don’t know if he got off the train or moved to another carriage & I went & told the guard & ihad 3 men wanting to go after him etc I am so goddamn ANNOYED at myself that I didn’t… Read more »

Lexicon, I think things like that stun us, you know? At 14 years old, was walking down a road going home and a young man (20 something maybe) walked by and pinched me on the boob. I was shocked and what could I do? I was alone on a long stretch of road. When I finally got to a corner where a neighborhood started, he had parked his car and started to approach me. He started to apologize and I backed up saying “just stay away frome me!” When I got home I told my (Libran) brother and begged him… Read more »

I came across this because I’d been looking up Jaden Smith’s horoscope as he was in Karate Kid and did the duet with J.B.

Willow is a Scorpio. Jaden is a Cancer with Aries rising (naturally wanted to know where the Aries might be with Karate Kid).

Not being able to respond the moment it happens is normal as is your delayed reaction. Unless warned in advance, rarely we expect people trampling our physical boundaries and our dignity. Cry if you want, powerlessness is a difficult emotion to handle. I don’t know which is more upsetting, a pervert touching you or a non-responsive environment. One evening I was grabbed in the middle of campus, the guy wrapped one arm to my neck, with other touched to my back, crotch and fled. I began to run, following, and screaming somebody stop him. My breath gave away, a middle-class,… Read more »

Thanks Sweetpea & Quadrupled for your responses. So frustrating to feel powerless. Not going to give it any more energy there is nothing I can do so that’s it! Just really annoyed that after doing a lovely new moon ritual I went out & had a great time that ended sourly.

So sorry that happened to you Quadrupled, makes me even stronger in my resolve to ALWAYS step in & not assume anything, get involved & intervene. Never assume.

Big hugs to you both

I know it’s a horrible feeling. That’s how perps work, they are cowards and catch you off guard. It takes time to recover from the shock of such things. It did for me. Although I went to the “other” extreme and started kicking the crap out of anyone that looked at me wrong… obviously that wasn’t the answer either.

There’s really nothing anyone can say to make it process quicker, there’s no special antidote, just be kind to yourself. You are not at fault in any way.

that is so horrible I find that things in public are first reaction shock and the conditioning of not speaking out. We don’t expect to have our guard on, so we are open, then the trust is abused it feels like hell. It’s not that you’re not tough, its just a reaction time thing. When you are in a dark alley your guard is on, not on a train thinking about your shopping list. I have had lots of hideous public encounters but its not your fault for feeling that way, not at all, its just the joys of public… Read more »

i hear you… it never ceases to suprise me how men think that they can inflict this behaviour on women, and maybe we think we could make them know by kicking their arse when this happens, yet it is still such a suprise, unexpected, uninvited, it makes me angry on so many levels. I understand the not wanting to be a victim to it lexi, but its okay to cry and feel the way you feel right now.

FUQ SO WRONG Do you know what he looked like? I always want to make posters with a description of the gropers and stick them up all around where it happened – scare the crap out of the fuqers so they feel like they’re being watched.

Your response was totally normal hon – it’s never expected, the random grope. You are feeling OK now?

Thanks for all the kinds messages, feeling much better now. I think it was just the grrrrrr’s at something like that happening on the new moon & it all just made me feel icky.

Whatever – he was bald & of course 3 bald/shaved head men got off at the next station (none were him) – sooooo glad my vigilante committee didn’t go after them!

You just weren’t expecting that guy to be a jerk! It’s not your fault he has no manners. I hear this sort of thing happens a lot in places like Japan. 🙁 But don’t take it out on yourself. Sometimes stuff happens to quickly and you just get brain freeze.

Intense dreaming day 2, managed to catch new moon, it was in my 8th house, made a wish to overcome self-imposed limitations.

I was too considering whether I should send a birthday message to the Scorp never happened, decided not to. Will send it in my head, no action.

It is a beautiful poem Mystic, thanks.
