Sun Sign Survey: How Do You Reboot?

Filed in Horoscopes

How do you motivate yourself when you’re at a low-ebb? And, does it fit with your Sun Sign or more like your Mars Sign?

For instance; Aries peeps don’t usually admit to a low ebb. They’re never lost though occasionally unsure of their precise location. Cancerians do well seeing to their security and comfort zone and then they can calculate their way out of any mess. Leos really do need to deal to their looks first and then, once coiffed, all can be solved. Scorpios get the intelligence they need, however they get it. Don’t ask. Aquarians zip into one of their alternative dimensions for perspective and Pisceans ask one of their Ascended Masters for advice.

You get the idea? Does your major motivational/reboot mode fit your Sun Sign?

Music can fix almost anything. (Libra moon) I get in my car, crank up, and drive. (Sag Ascendant) If I’m not feeling better in a few minutes, I drive near a body of water, maybe even get out and walk or sit outside for a moment. (lots of planets in Capricorn; need to be outside)
Sometimes indulging myself in a nice dessert or drink helps. (Libra, Sag)
If all else fails, I nap because that’s sometimes the only way we Aquarians turn off our thoughts.

depends on how serious things are, but for general melancholy or shitiness, cleaning is the bomb. Cannot attribute this to Virgo (unless my mum counts). And de-cluttering (definitely cannot attribute this to my mum!). Clean and de-clutter so that everything sparkles and feels fresh again (includes opening all the doors and windows, no matter how chilly). Then make a list of all the other shit that needs to get done. Start doing it. If things are really bad, sleep. Sleep some more. Sleep again. Wake up, notice how the place has gone to seed. Clean. De-clutter. Make lists. Do. Actually,… Read more »

Pushing for structure in daily schedule helps me to re-boot for my Moon in Cap. Re-reading a favorite book for my Gem Sun and water, even washing dishes, for my Pisces rising.

In order of ease of accessibility rather than effectiveness
– stay home, lie on the couch, talk to noone except the cat, watch the trees and the clouds
– red wine
– all of the above with the stereo cranked
– get in some water
– go visit my favourite bar tender
– go for a drive, to the beach

Talking to my cat always works though. She’s an angel cat.

Back in the city for the w/e after a week at the beach with besties & their kelpies, reboot heaven. Bought back 2 baby boy fancy rats, cream hooded with ruby red eyes (not pink), Jack & Henry that i couldn’t resist at the local village pet shop. Did resist the 3 shitzu puppies, 5 rabbits & 2 ragdoll kittens. They kept me awake most of the night with their antics, feel like a washed out ‘new mother’. Returning for another week, so the boys will be travellers like me. It was Sweetpea’s birthday April 1, so if she comes… Read more »

Cancer sun, libra moon… I have found that merely by unplugging the phone, insuring it doesn’t ring, gives me a sense of being in a protected space that I have asserted my control over.. and the intent to give me fully to myself, without any chance of interference and intrusion of others. I stay home with the curtains closed, creating a cave like retreat and will go out only for a walk if I feel the need to stretch my legs…otherwise I do yoga and meditate… Living in the country I can be outside and take a long walk without… Read more »

Scorpio Sun – disappear, alone, usually into an abyss of internet/info collection/stalking/internet TV streaming escapism or Mars in Sag (Conjunct Neptune) literal disappear into mega fantasy land or actual run away travel time. Aries ASC does admit low ebb, usually tells anyone who will listen (Twitter, Facebook, blog, here, whatevs) in outspoken manner.

Can defs relate to disappearing into the wide world of web to escape mundane reality. Was all excited the first time I visited the metaphysical Adyar bookshop and compared it to the topics I’d type into Google lol — shows my youth mees thinks..

My Gem Mars likes to talk talk talk in a effort to make sense of things and come to some conclusions. The other person listening is optional as it seems to work either way…. hmm, usually on those closest to me have to put up with this though.

Depends. For a tricky problem that I need to get my head round, a walk somewhere green. That’d be my Virgo sun. For tiredness and stress, shiatsu – Cap moon. But for motivation when I’m feeling down, nothing beats putting on some music and trying on clothes in front of the mirror. I’ve got a feeling Mystic calls it the Tao of Vanity…Leo rising, works for me.

Water Pig

That’s really interesting Plum. I hadn’t thought about the different types of low ebbs and how you try different things at different times. I agree re trying on clothes even if it is just to clean out my wardrobe.

Plum

ha yes, a whole catalogue of gloom! Just thinking it through some more, I can see how my different sides both cause and respond to different types of low ebbs – problems to analyse = Virgo, work stress = Cap, lack of fun and/or attention = Leo

Water Pig

I think it’s great. It encouraged me to look at how I cope with different situations when there’s a low ebb. It really expands your ability to manage stress and anxiety and to potentially see patterns. Each of our astro attributes give us strengths and weaknesses and it’s good to be aware of how they interact and to find a way to use all of them. You’ve raised an excellent point about the cause and response effect. In a way sometimes astro influences feed into each other. I should know about that I have 3 fixed signs- leo rising, aqua… Read more »

But, I keep busy, unless I am thoroughly exhausted and sick then I revert back into sulking, and daydreaming again.

Walking, yoga and sleeping helps. Being out in the sunshine and smelling roses in the garden. Playing with my dog in the yard or a walk with her at the beach. I find water and vitamins help if i’m desperate. I also love to read when I have the energy but mostly inspirational non-fiction or more astrology. I also write to my friends. I cry a lot. Leo rising, taurus sun, aqua moon, venus gemini, mars taurus. I would say when i’m at a really low ebb sunshine is the best as is my dog. However, too much time alone… Read more »

At the moment i’m reading Oogy (Larry Levin) and I have the Animal Whisperer (Trisha McCaugh). I really love animal books- Christian the Lion was an all time favourite. I also liked Rupert Sheldrake’s ‘Dogs that know when their owners are coming home’, however, it did get a little technical in the middle and I stalled on that one. I also liked ‘Tell me where it hurts’ Nick Trout. I also love ‘The dog who loved cheerios and other tales of excess’ (Johnson). I have others but it would get boring. That’s generally what I read if there’s a low… Read more »

LOVE Rupert Sheldrakes’ “Dogs that know when their owners are coming home”!!!! Yes, itawy, those books get my eyes leaking too but for good reasons, well, mostly.
You might like “The Man Who Talks To Dogs” by Melinda Roth. I read it in one go in a few hours, sobbing, being utterly embarrassed to be human, then the man of the title redeems our species through his actions.

UPV I had a look at that book by Melinda Roth and I think I will get it. It’s something that I never get tired of reading about. I also want to get back to Rupert Sheldrake- i’ve had it for years and only got half-way through i’m looking at it on the shelf now. The dog on the cover is soo cute- he looks like a teddy bear.

Also, ‘Dog stars’ by Sherene Schostak and Wendy Lam is fantastic. You can look up your star sign and that of your dog. I looked up the moon sign for my dog, too, and it fits perfectly.

Sunshine, garden, dogs… tick tick tick! Plus yoga & reading… Top combo WP. I love dogs – we have 3 brown Kelpies at present. I drove into town last night and took the littlest Kelpie, Sweetie, with me. She lay on the front seat and rested her front paws and her chin on my leg. How good is that feeling? Warm, trusting, calm. Everything is OK. She sometimes sits backwards looking out the rear windscreen. Cracks me up. I love seeing the silouhette of a dog’s head in a car with its humans.

Used to be I’d get drunk, eat chocolate, watch tv, then have a bath, give myself a deep and meaningful talk therapy session with reality testing if poss, meditate, then give myself a pep talk, give someone else a pep talk, break down and talk to others, tell them to fuq off, then go clothes shopping followed by ignoring the whole situation, getting on with shite and being in the ‘now’ but feeling in the ‘then’. Repeat (altering order).

It was quite tiring and happened quite frequently.

Had a Reiki appt. for the first time today, was good, felt tingles, and connected with the practitioner. Monday have a naturopath appt. Virgo sun, Scorp rising, Pisces moon – usual reboot is to isolate self in my lil sanctuary of a unit (Pisces moon in 4th) and then the full-on Scorpiness comes out, whether seething, screaming, totally silent stealth brooding or punching things to let the energy out usually finished by ob-comp data searching… Read more »

Sagg Sun, Aqua rising, Scorpio Mars

Very true to sun and rising, not so much with the mars from what I can tell. My reboot is to go out or hang out with friends (loaded 11th house probably helps this, too). If I’m on my own then walking/pacing/jogging and either talking out loud or (if in public) doing some serious thinking. I tend to like to do my pacing/walking in crowded places like the city or shopping centres, I get more from the ‘busy’ vibe than a quiet one, generally.

Libra sun and moon with Leo rising

Nothing beats a “beauty night” on a Thursday and then party time on Friday night – how Libra/Leo is that?!

My beauty night routine is exfoliation, fake tan, hair treatment, home facial and face mask, foot scrub and home mani + pedi. It takes HOURS but I wake up on Friday feeling on top of the world.

and the other day when I was feeling down I texted a fellow Libran with my woes and she wrote back ‘manicures and cocktails?’

I’m agreeing with the hairdresser mechanism.

Also, my four planets, inc Sun, in 10th house Sagg copes by going out with friends and drinking cocktails.

If the rebooting need is fed via my staurn/Moon conj in 11th house Capricorn then it’s reading my kindle in bed with my cats.

And dead sea salts with essential oil bath is good – I think I learnt from MM that that cleanses one’s aura….

I am Libran Sun, Libra Rising. On the whole I’m a really positive person.

Lesson in life: patience; balance. Sod it, I wanna be running around like a blue-arsed fly.

I think I have a three stage reboot. First, Aries Rising tells me to toughen the fuq up. Then, to feel better able to TTFU, Leo Sun gets me groomed and dressed. Last of all, Cap Moon draws up a to-do list and a schedule. And voila! Motivated and ready to go.

Gem sun,4th house & kataka mars 5th.
Express my feelings dramatically in private through writing, hot shower and along chat with myself, or kitchen disco/Kate Bush dance-off, then appear in public or phone a friend with renewed optimism , fake-it-til-you-make-it style. As in, take a positive attitude consciously when I know I am low. Self pity is debilitating for me so a mood swing is the door to freedom from being sucked lower. Then the bounce comes back to the world.

Go to doctor nature.

Going bush for a few hrs or overnight always works to become reinspired or detoxed .

I so identify with this, especially the writing it out/ long talk with self and doctor nature (love that phrase!) I have Mercury in Gemini and Gemini South Node so it’s easy for me to get way too entangled in my own mental acrobatics, Gem-style. I have to talk/write until there is no more to say, and go to a place outdoors where words are irrelevant.

To deal with a low ebb (or any kind of freak out) I work the trifecta of my Sun, Rising & Moon. Usually in this order: * Sun in Cancer: retreats to home base, secures self in private sanctuary, cuts off communications, gets warm, gets safe, goes quiet and processes like crazy until I feel steady inside. * Scorpio Rising: seeks information, assesses the data to determine what is authentic (and differentiate from that which is imagined/not real/not relevant), researches solutions, digs and digs and digs until it gets some insight that makes sense or some technique that is applicable… Read more »

Moon In Aries with all that deep water? Ah. Is this the right room for an argument … ?

Just discovered that reading Plato can be very cheering for a slightly crazed dark moon – esp. when you imagine John Cleese in the role of Socrates and Eric Idle as everyone else. It’s quietly hilarious and strangely riveting. (That’s Mars In Leo in low key mood offset by whimsy of Pisces Sun.)

Nooo DSB, this is NOT the right room for an argument… ha ha!

I also enjoy the quiet hilariousness & whimsy of reading things in stupid voices – not highbrow text like plato but warning signs, ads, serious pronouncements etc. I can’t help myself mimic accents and other people’s expressions too. Love being so easily amused. Mars in Leo huh, surely you also cheer yourself with a great ‘do/mane maintenance?

Thanks! The last few dark moons have been like the sound Laurie Anderson makes in “Language is a Virus” ( … I think it’s a pain cry). You honour it and live the moment. It passes.

Well … being a creative type I have a total spazz at least twice a week. Ka-boom! Invective! Sarcasm! Shouts!

Another reason why walking (and good breathing) is a key part of my general well-being maintenance program. Peeps closest to me say I’m better for it.

Pamper myself (like massages/facials/etc.) and spend time alone making healing foods. Read. hike. explore new areas. write. paint.

I am Libra Sun, Scorpio Moon (in 12th house), with Saggo rising. If i feel beautiful, I can accomplish anything.

I keep myself v busy, processing is fast and I’m always motivated… 😯
If I’m feeling in a little rut I’ll watch comedies or call someone and make them laugh! I don’t get down for long, it generally passes quickly… 😯

Mars in Virgo in 6th & being a Gemini Sun in 3rd helps me do 25 things at once… 😯 …It helps me relax too!

Something has shifted here.

As Pisces Sun/Asc I have always turned to the Ascended Master to reboot.

However the Ascended Master has invariably led me down the (his/ her) garden path.

Sorry to sound all New Age….but have come to realise that the Ascended Master lies within.

Let me consider that for a minute since I’m in low ebb of sorts right now. I have retreated back to my Kataka shell, but I think the thing that motivates right now is that I am intelligent and capable enough to get this shiite, and I still have that shell (a.k.a. home) to go back to when I want to get away from it all.

I also do think make-overs help, I’m making a trip to the hairdresser sometime in the next few days. 5th house Venus coming into play?

Oh, and also a good book or story and some out-of-this-world stuff on the Sci-Fi, History, or Travel Channels is a temprorary pick-up for me with the typical nice foods. I’ve heard that doing a combo of your Moon and Jupiter is a good pick-me-up when feeling low. In my case thats Jupiter in Taurus in the 5th/Moon in Virgo in the 8th….makes sense.

I like that. I have a hair appointment next week too and although I’m Sun Scorpio and Mars with Virgo Moon, I have Leo in Jupiter, which explains why some indulgent pampering always makes me feel better. I think the Virgo Moon might come into plan there because after I get my hair cut or colored I almost always feel motivated to clean out my beauty products, throw out old stuff and then go shopping for new products to use on my new do. πŸ˜€

Amen to the ‘cleaning house’! I can only truly relax when the space is devoid of clutter. =)

Gemini Sun… I give myself a pep talk. What else? Mars is conjunct Mercury, so it’s hard to know what’s happening there. It never gets a word in.

Scorpio Sun AND Mars I’ve found that accepting low times is a natural part of being a Scorpio. I embrace my moody broody ways and when people tell me to “cheer up” or “think happy thoughts” I usually tell them that they wouldn’t understand…and then I tell them to fuq off. Actually I don’t usually verbalize it, as an icy stare does wonders all on its own. Someone once told me when I was younger, that it’s not natural to be happy all the time, that you have to be sad sometimes. Just being told that made me feel very… Read more »

Exactly! Actually what I really want to do is punch them in the face but then my more rational side talks me down from it. BTW I’ve been wanting to punch A LOT of people in the face lately….. is this normal? Lol!

Amen to embracing the ‘down’ times! I’ve found over the years the best way for me to handle a low is to fully embrace it – not to become all low-Neptune but to acknowledge that it’s ok to feel down and to examine the reasons why … to work through the darkness rather than ignoring it. When I feel this way, I clear my desk, light a candle and do some deep-breathing/meditation/acknowledging-thoughts-without-judgment-as-they-arise type thing. I also do the steamy shower, put on my trusty trackies and snuggle down in bed and either write it out or re-watch ‘The Wire’ (particularly… Read more »

A trio of very enterprising Scorpio, Pisces and Cancer peeps should really get together and establish a hydrotherapy spa for water signs! There could be all manner of water luxuries to escape into…baths, showers, saunas, lap pools, jacuzzies, aromatherapy mists. Even sensory deprivation tanks! Of course there will be those times when we just want to isolate ourselves and not go out or interact with other people, in which case there should also be a “spa in a box” delivery service that brings wonderful bath salts, oils, and bubbles to your doorstep, so the broody water sign never has to… Read more »

Oh, yes please … LOVE some hydrotherapy. Working at/owning a spa would be perfect, because one would have unlimited access to hammams, salt scrubs, massages ………. *drifts off into a daydream* And if it were in the desert somewhere, I’d never leave! πŸ™‚

Interesting. Would you rather an oasis in the desert or a seaside retreat? I’ve always lived within an hour of the coast, even though I don’t get to the beach that regularly, but I’ve wondered before if I could live in a land-locked state and be happy or if my Scorpy self would intuitively miss being close to the water.

Scorp Sun, Virgo Mars: think, brood, think some more, ponder, brood, think, scheme, think, write stuff down, and basically examine the issue/problem at hand until there’s nothing left to do but, y’know, DO something about it.

me too. sagg sun, leo mars, scorp ascendant, and a major wallop of conjuctions right on my virgo mc. oh, but I have to add that without great hair (Leo mars), and tight slim athletic bum and thighs and several runs around the block or fifty (Sagg sun, Aries Moon), I may spend way too much time on the pondering and examining, since in that case, I am lacking confidence. then again, when hair/bod are just right (or as right as I can make em) i will often be able to trump/avoid wasting time on all the analysis with action… Read more »

What a perfect topic. Scorpio Sun, Virgo Moon. Think, more like ruminate, for a long time and then am very efficient in implementing my plan. But it can take a long, long time of isolation and research (which of course I tell no one about ) before I finally act. And it usually catches people off guard.

I thought no but on reflection yes. I gem sun often need to talk, sunrise sunrise, before I confirm my course of action, I def have a thesis of ways to reboot, scorpion rising, and I’m not beyond calling on ascended masters even in my most atheist of hours.

Oh Gem-
I have Mars in gemini and I was just thinking…Hmmm, Mystic didn’t say for Geminis…but that is exactly it on the dinger… Mars in Gemini- I have to TALK- it’s huge… low ebb= voracious need to talk it though, out, vent, converse, gab, anything…..

So true.
