Diet Bi-Polar on The Dark Moon

Tick Yes to anything that resonates.  In your mind. I can’t figure out  how to do tick boxes & my usual astro-poll app has gone totally ape.

How Dark Moon Affected Are You?

You are…

* Diet Bi-Polar, alternating between pondering a broccoli-tofu souffle thing and getting hammered at lunch?  Cheesecake feels relevant again.

* Riddled with security concerns? Nearly to point of panic. Thank you Taurus Dark Moon.

* Considering taking up martial arts insanely seriously if you have not already just so you can kick and punch things. Hard. It’s the Aries stellium.

* Suddenly sociopathic re all your relationships and secretly loving it.

* Slightly freaked out by how eerie synchronicity of Royal Wedding and the Osama gotcha has bought up memories of milestones in your life; marriages, young love, where-you-were-when-Diana-died/Sept 11/Bali bombings, unresolved psych issues, grief etc.

* Obsessed with ensuring that the texture of your skin is perfect. Even if nothing else damn well is.

* Pondering screwing with your hormones to manifest a more desirable you.

crazy eating. grapefruit juice then chocolate.

endless period from hell (acupuncture not working yet)

soooooo sleepy

feels like a Mercury retrograde on steroids in these last few days

Plus, it’s official. I’m becoming a vampire. Necessity is the mother of invention (or something like that). Period from hell creating massive iron deficiency and rare steak i’ve been gnawing on for 2 days is not enough. I poured the au jus from said steak into martini just now. yes, gross, but delicious.

Cripes bluesky! Once your blood iron levels get very low (due to heavy periods/fibroids/diet etc) it takes months of careful management to get them back up again. As well as the accupuncture, have you tried herbs from a proper herbalist for the heavy periods? Shepherd’s purse and False Unicorn spring to mind… but I am sure there are several others. I suggest you get a blood iron level reading now and again in a few months after you start your new management regime. You cannot manage what you don’t measure. (yes, I am a scientist and I am on some… Read more »

Thanks, Nat. This is great. And, yes, need to make time to get blood levels checked. Although the 2 “blood” martinis were truly medicinal;)

The acupuncturist gave me a bottle of black, round pills to take (24 a day!!!) Couldn’t begin to tell you what is in them as all the writing is in Chinese. You just reminded me that I need to take them. Trust is so vital when one takes medicine in a different language (fingers crossed…)

yes to all of them! the diet/excercise thing is so true, the last few days i didn’t even want coffee (something inconceiveable for me), i CRAVED water with lemon and cold fruit for breakfast, so unusual for me; but this afternoon right after yoga there were some brownies on the table at home, and yes, i indulged Also, in the last few weeks i felt restless if i didn’t excercise, i guess it’s all that aries on my 6th house! and i noticed the track was more crowded than usual, so it’s affecting a lot of people 😀 The news… Read more »

Yes, totally obsessed with perfect skin texture right now. But I’m usually always this way, too some extent, as I’ve had skin problems growing up… Just more so now!

Also feel suddenly sociopathic, but wondering when NOT sociopathic as I have an Aqua moon and quite a few things in Scorp… Sorry if I like to watch people squirm and then giggle to myself indifferently.

nat

delilah, I suggest that you search “Saturn” on this site. See above left “Search this site” or use the drop down menu in “Categories”. Read the Saturn posts (45), especially the Saturn Girl posts, and also read the Self Actualisation posts (10). You will be able to use all this great material to enlighten yourself. Angsting about the future is of no use. Much more useful (and very Saturn) to learn new skills to improve yourself. The rest follows.

With trans. Sun and Moon on my Venus so wanted a float in the pool this a.m. but no time. I have to go do 5 hrs. straight massage when I would so love to relax and pamper Toro style, myself.

Oh well. This is where the Aries/Cappy parts have to kick in but I’d love a nap. Lately, each day I wake up and would love to go back to bed!

Unhappy feelings will pass aquaphobe. I promise. Remember you are the sky. You have clouds passing across you but you are not the clouds. If you like visualisations you might enjoy this one: imagine you are lying back in a favourite place just gazing at the sky. Take in the whole sky. Watch as clouds form and move across the sky. Coming and going. (If you wish you can put any nagging thoughts onto the clouds and just let them go for now). When your focus drifts off, gently bring it back to the sky.

Happy to be of service Aquaphobe. Like that you baked your own cheesecake. Kudos! Philly or ricotta? I made ricotta gnocchi the other night and added some dried mint leaves to the mixture. Been making my own tomato sauces lately too – ie. the bogan type tomato sauce in a bottle, as well as the napolitana kind for pasta. Totally had it with bought tom sauce – even the organic stuff tastes like chemicals not tomatoes. Got a pan blender for xmas and it feels like I can make anything 🙂

LL, love that you used the phrase “pull your socks up”. I have used that several times today – to myself and others! It seems like a very Aries (get on with it) and Saturn (stand up straight; stand for something) saying I think. Sorry to hear about the death in your family. Again I hear Saturn at work… endings, limits, mortality, Father’s eldest brother etc. It is strange how some deaths can really stir things up in us. And its not always the ones that we were expecting to have that effect. I don’t mean to trivialise the topic… Read more »

I get your point about the sneakiness of loss, and also found Shirley’s passing a jolt, as he epitomised so many benchmarks of my childhood.

Nope re the article LL. I’m in Melb these days anyway. The kind of stuff I am talking about it becoming a bit more generalised anyway, tends to crop up a bit in Vegas because of the size of the developments that go on, or around things like the laneways project etc.
Nice of you to think of me though 🙂

Cheescake – had some today, first time this year.. that was before the organic low food miles salad.
Was considering going back to hardcore personal trainer (best way of beating myself up), who suddenly arrived back in town after 3 years away.
Sociopathic – not so much loving it, as wondering where the hell it came from!
Just exfoliated.

Put me down for 6/7.

diet obsessive, yes. exercise obsessive, yes. and yes, yes, to all the dark moon screwball stuff. craving salad then eating half a tub of choc/honey ice cream. exercising like a maniac cos i truly love it. seriously. and have honestly been thinking about taking up boxing classes. but i have my moments of social phobia, so not really good with group things…. for goodness sake, clear my head oh new moon. send me some love so i stop looking for it in food!

Ohmygosh, the diet thing, most definitely! The past two days, I’ve felt the need to eat really healthily during the day, (literally just salad and smoothies) before scoffing two chocolate bars at night. Weird. Maybe it’s time of the month or something, haha! I remember with both the Princess Di and the 9/11 attacks I was quite young… age 6 and then 10. But how I felt then is exactly the same as how I’ve been feeling about the Royal Wedding and the death of Osama, its really freaky. So vivid.

Hello Sweetie,
yes ratties as Saggo’s tend to be hesitant on 10-15 year
commintments required for a canine, besides i would
want a Rottwieller or Husky, some huge breed that couldn’t
be lifted IF anything untoward happened to them & they needed
lifting. Ratties have a 2 year lifespan due to genetic tampering,
as fancy rats come from lab rats. I give them a beautiful life to make
up for the experiments done to them in the name of ‘cures’ for humanity.
(as if humanity can be cured, huh, we live in hope).

So everything will be OK?…big sigh of relief, cause I really thought I was loosing it.

Diet – yes. I am actually eating sugary carbs and loving it. This is not normal. I also just felt COMPELLED to run the birth chart of my ex boyfriend, who was killed in an accident Sept 10 2001.
Practising martial arts in a home environment. Freaking out (security) cos my mum is leaving for Europe for a month and I will spend mothers day alone with my 3 year old. Why does this scare me?

Yep. Have been much more interested in putting all my energies into pondering reality vs illusion for essay (and massive personal interest) than being dragged out to nightlife venues et other social niceties.

The hormone thing….I’m kinda coming off of it somewhat, still detoxing. Just shut off my sex drive for the past month using herbs but seems to be messing with brain functionality, such as short term memory and sleep.

I was taking vitex, which is supposed to be helpful to most women, but I know for a fact it shuts down my sex drive and other things. My body makes a lot of male hormones and my “needs” have caused friction between myself and previous partners before. I’ve been very fruitful not obsessing about being sex-less which is great, but it does other bad things to me which is why I’m not still on it. It seems to mess with dopamine levels and my sleep.

Omg, these two are spot on! I used like two different types of lotion today because my skin didn’t feel smooth enough. Totally Toro.

Then I was thinking about my pathetic A-cup boobs (titties, really) and wondering if there was any natural way to make them grow with hormone pills or something. Not so much for attraction but to not look so weird. (I hope I outgrow this idea/phase.)
