Tantric You

Filed in Pluto

Sisterwolf

The current astro is brill for meditation: Mercury in Scorpio aspecting Jupiter & Pluto as they form a mind-bending trine of fabulous tantricity.

My mind is way too active (Mercury in Aries) to still easily, i need the binaural beats (from skittish urbanite to dalai lama style brainwaves in three minutes flat) or tracks with names like Power Meditate and Malibu Tantra that incorporate magical Solfreggio Frequencies.

Bats, i know. And then my Mars in Virgo feels guilty for slacking off so i have to remember that relaxation IS productive. It’s not like you can’t do a face mask at the same time. Speaking of skincare, i have noticed over the years that everyone post-Chiron Return (about the age of 50) who looks AMAZING does regular meditation. It’s the one consistent.

So anyway, Mercury in Scorp is fantastic for meditation, getting tantric, confronting your animus/anima in dreams, personal resolve AND snooping but please, let’s not go there with the latter. If you want to do a tedious little bingle through someone’s facebook or whatever, pull back, pretend that it will drain your brain (because it will) and go meditate.

Omg, you know what else REALLY works? Those Sanskrit Monks chanting mantra tracks. I swear they’re magic.

Thoughts?  Or are you too busy being mindful to type lol.

i wasn’t hating on mystic, so don’t hate on me.

i was just sayin’ it’s difficult to get at sometimes. now let me bow out before i embarrass myself trying to figuratively bitch slap some ‘peeps’ over the internet. besides, i’ve got some mystical posts to catch up on.

damn.

Frans, as The Senior member of the tribe, just want to say…
keep on writing & expressing yourself: words wildly wierding wickedly.
It’s when peeps (and ‘peeps’ is easier than peoples in this ‘got to go faster
than quick society’ and limited space allowed) don’t express that trouble starts
so it’s just communication, so look to your Mercury placement & others to get
some inside info.
We don’t get to read the facial expressions to know the nuances, Petal, so
please don’t take it to heart.
Bon Courage & what’s your Sun sign (if you come back?).

but of course. my chart is as batty as me. == uranus/neptune conj. AC in capricorn, saturn in the first == jupiter/chiron conj. DC in cancer- also sun and merc in the 6th == moon in libra. mars in aries. re THAT it is safe to say everything clicked when i started learning about astrology. the only non-cardinal planets i’ve got are venus in gemini *in the fifth, please, let this bring twins!!) .. and pluto in scorpio interstingly, to me, anyway, jupiter conj.

am crap with meditating but have been told this weekend by childcare educator/doula queen/reiki mistress to at least find a mantra or chant to use during the upcoming labour. also been told to try to spend less time in left-brain analytical tech work and make more time for right-brain creativity before bubba comes, i think it was to make the transition easier. no idea. i’m up for it regardless.

OMG what a laugh all this is. I feel for Fran, but the conversation that followed has been so funny, so thanks for that Fran. Am Australian and it took me a little while to work out some of the language used here – while there is plenty of Oz (Australian) slang here, there is also Mystic-speak and when the subject matter is astrology – with all its specialised language – I can understand that it may be confusing. so hang in there Fran!! I just love the way people play with language on this site tho. Virg Sun, Gem… Read more »

just for the record, i do think a lot of folks were a little harsh while jumping to Mystic’s defence – she’s a grown up and she can hack it. Fran’s comment might not have had the same mellow tone as many commenters here but it’s still a blog and she can say what she likes, it’s all feedback after all. anyway. that’s all i guess.

Ps yes to tantra, yoga, pilates and meditation forever!\

You mean there is actually a Hoochie plant? I always thought that it refered to getting so drunk that you lose your inhibitions and become a slut! In the US during the 90’s a Hoochie Mama was black slang for a girl with a lot of attitude, who was easy and dressed like a hooker. When I lived in Sydney I found it hilarious that there was a cafe called Hoochie Mama’s, around the corner from my apartment in Newtown. 😀

The first chance I have to get on here and I read this. What was I doing not 10 minutes ago? The calming heart sutra in prep for some serious fenging. 😮

As for keeping a still mind; find that tres difficult at times ESPECIALLY during yoga lately (too much Gem perhaps?!?). Never used to be a problem but now my mind runs a million miles a minute during it.

*off to read everything above*

I meditate every day, even if its for 20 mins. In the beginning it can be weird, boring, painful but after the initial stuff you really get a huge benefit to your overall health body and mind. My tip would be to not follow any particular form or system of meditation. If your comfy lying down, great, sitting up, eyes closed, eyes open…whatever. Just put aside the time, get comfy in your own way and relax.

Since this post is related to Mercury and due to the above comments, maybe we could start a little Aussie translation guide for our overseas friends?

To kick off:

bonk – to have sex
bonkers – crazy, mad, insane
bats – really crazy, mad or insane
shag – to have sex (but not with a bird)
off my/your tits: drunk/stoned, on some substance
off my/your face: drunk/stoned, on some substance
dag – silly person (said with affection), someone behaving stupidly

Lauren

My favorite when I was over there for a semester abroad was “heaps”. Not a new word, but in the US it’s only really used as a unit of measurement, like “a heap of apples” or a “heap of paperwork”. Whereas in Australia people seemed to use it for everything and pluralize it….”I was heaps busy yesterday”, “Come to the party, it’ll be heaps fun!” When I email my friends there I still say “I miss you heaps!” 😀 Btw: “bird” means girl, right? So can you shag a guy, but not shag a girl? Language is so much fun.… Read more »

prowlncrab

hahahaha … no I meant it doesn’t denote having sex with “actual” birds – a shag is a sea based bird similar to a cormorent. But in the slang term yes you can shag a bird. Heaps confusing innit? 😉

Geez people, some of you can be really catty. Frans said she wasn’t posting to be rude, and if someone told me my blog was difficult to understand I would take it as constructive criticism. I’m sure not all the readers of this blog start out as astrology experts or even know that this is primarily an Australian blog with a largely Australian readership. I didn’t when I found it, and it wasn’t until digging around a bit that I found that out. Instead of saying “if you don’t get it well that’s your fault” I would have thought that… Read more »

Lauren

Oh, I’m not saying the writing style needs to change, just to be aware that not everyone understands things the same way. I know there’s beyond plenty of gushing love for Mystic, this blog and the way it’s written, but to have everyone jump on one person who may have a different opinion just seems so negative and wrong. It doesn’t vibe right with all this talk of meditation, healing and mantras. Namaste.

davidl

Exactly, so why bother posting those comments in the beginning ? who would benefit ? If she doesn’t get it, go elsewhere? . Why come on to someone else’s astrology blog, criticise their writing, criticise their astro and then make dumb suggestions for increasing readership ? She’s the one who came out airswinging ? End result ?

I agree with you Lauren!! There’s enough gushing on this blog already. So it’s unnecessary to attack someone for having a different opinion. Frans comment wasn’t vicious in anyway way but some of the responses have been teetering on the edge.
Namaste indeed 🙂

now what I wanna know is – what the BLOODY HELL does Namaste mean? And where does it come from?

Namaste – Sanskrit in origin, meaning “the spirit within me honors the spirit within you”, used often to bring yoga classes to an end.

oh settle down DavidL! What are you attacking me for???? I have no complaints about Mystic’s writing style. Just defending someone for having an opinion. At least Frans had the balls to not comment anonymously. Sheesh, I can only imagine what would have happened if she/he had!

I think you need to go and meditate for another 20 mins. It’s not having any effect on your state of mind. LOL

But frans didn’t ask a question. Plenty of us have asked vocab qs before, and people answer (including Mystic).

Frans’ comment was polite, in any case, so yes the cattiness is a strong response. But i visited frans’ site and found the punctuation poor and the grammar… confusing… as TLS did above. It is fair criticism of frans’ writing, considering.

Had a hideous nightmare last night. I dreamt that my family were staying in a 2 story house. A tsunami came and flooded the lower level. Water was gushing in and we were trying to escape to the upper level of the house. Me and my immediate family managed to scramble to safety but extended family were stuck downstairs. Woke up feeling stressed and awful.

returned to meditation last night; this morning I listened to a track that Mystic suggested to me a couple of years ago in a consult; so, wow, I didn’t realise how intuitively tuned-in I am to the current astro. I’m also a fan of Bjork (re. twitter posts) since her first solo-album and single ‘Play dead’ .. I love her emphasis on transformation and try to incorporate it into my philosophy – I think it’s wise, healthy and necessary to kill off the day/past/shedd skin and move on. Re. Mars in Virgo self-guilting — I don’t know if it’s been… Read more »

I wonder if for some people this Merc in Scorpio is manifesting itself nastily, because suddenly Mystic is under fire and it seems out of nowhere/unnecessary. Some people are not meditating… 🙂 Mercury in Virgo and Mars in Toro. Someone told me once that it might not get any speedier than Virgo when it comes to Mercury, but I didn’t really think it was so? She had hers in Taurus though, and once she mentioned it I realized that I did work much, much faster than her. Mars in Toro + Leo sun can = laziness and procrastination, but my… Read more »

But really, I was once good good friends with another Virgo until I couldn’t take the criticism anymore (and she was just a really low Virgo,… Read more »

That’s lovely of you to note about being less critical.

Your asc, sun and moon are fixed signs. My asc is Leo-fire-sun ruled, moon is Taurus-earth-venus ruled, both are fixed in nature and enjoy a leisurely pace/style; mars in cancer-water-moon ruled.

I think people get nit-picky when they are stressed out, projecting fears of inadequacy onto others, are dissatisfied and unhappy with their own life.
Ever where high on life or just received incredible news? The last thing on your mind is to belittle or nit-pick with others.

How that translates into transits- I do not know exactly yet but, involve low-Virgo or Gem energy squares with Mercury or 3td House. This is why I am not an astrologer but, a student. 🙂

Wow. Just wow. One of the many things I love about Mystic is her use of language. I mean, jeez, at least she uses CAPITAL LETTERS to start her sentences.

That’s right! Doona is another one. I went shopping for bedding once and asked where the “comforters” were and got a bunch of blank stares. But eventually figured out the equivalent was doona. Kind of like a quilt…heavier than a sheet, but lighter than a thick woven blanket.

Have to agree Lucy. I had some of Mystic’s books already but when I came to the site I was in amazement overload. The lingo/jargon/wordage lit up my brain with delight (heaven to a Gem) and I couldn’t get enough. Occasionally a word/phrase will throw me but then I try and deduce exactly what was meant – more bliss – and on it goes. I do understand it might not be for everyone – read some passages to a friend once who was confused but curious due to my enthusiasm. They love Mystic’s wisdom but can’t get into the language.… Read more »

Dearest frans, i would like to point out that Mystic does not make up words, in general. I have learned many languages and from the moment i first read Mystic’s horoscopes, her specific word choice meant more to me than vague or poorly chosen vocab. She also uses words from current zeitgeist, and so do the people who reply to these blogs, meaning that sometimes i have to check out the meaning of new slang. It’s fresh! It’s great! Mystic has a background in journalism, i think (?) and is therefore well acquainted with forms of language and word play.… Read more »

I like the re-reading of posts to decipher frans … make me pay more attention to what is really being said! Besides I find MM’s style witty and amusing – totally over dumbed-down internet content which is like reading a grade two spelling text book. Mystic is quite unique and I like her uniqueness.

Seriously? I have to disagree, frans. While, yes, I do sometimes have to re-read what Mystic says, I actually get pleasure from it, like a puzzle that needs solving or a gift that needs unwrapping. Her posts are all amazing and often too short! So I like getting the most I can from them. Also, I used to despise slang (except when used ironically), but Mystic makes it somehow very appealing and I find I’ve even started to think the way she writes (yes, I spend way too much time on here). If it was boring and too straight-forward, it… Read more »

frans – I’m 64 and had a hell of a job understanding what was going on, from MM’s posts to contributions from others, didn’t even know what “peeps” was when I first came across it. But I am nothing if not curious and determined, so I hung around and slowly began to decipher what the hell was being said. It’s FUN, DAMMIT! And each person has their own unique way of expressing who they are and what they say. If they change these because someone else doesn’t like it, then they’re not being true to themselves. I have a whacko… Read more »

Interesting comment frans, I have a marketing background so I suppose from that perspective, I understand wot you’re saying about newcomer retention and I can appreciate it’s well intended. I was mulling this over this very day when I was reading the latest INC Mag business Case Study featuring a company called Fun & Function. The gist of it is that they make therapy products for special needs kids. The couple who started it has a special needs child themselves and were motivated to create the business when they found out how atrocious and hence stigmatizing most of the products… Read more »

Hi Frans I think it needs to be said – “people who live in glass houses” honey, I just clicked through to your blog, as suggested, and honestly, bless you, but who are you to make a comment like that on another blogger’s site?! There are words that would make Doctor Seuss have nightmares on your blog. That aside – everyone is entitled to an opinion, but those who GENUINELY wish to give constructive criticism are often polite enough to DO IT IN PRIVATE. And you need only read the testimonials delivered here: http://mysticmedusa.com/2011/10/testify-your-love/ and the ever climbing volume of… Read more »

Glass house indeed.. and she lists herself as a “Kataka” sun.

Oh, so you love her less, it’s annoying you more but you blithely describe your sun sign using a descriptor I’ve only ever known Myst to use?? Honey, you’re young, you’re pretty but you need a bit more humility before you make certain suggestions.

And absolutely agree with Lexicorn about critiquing in private. DO ask if you’re not sure what something means, we’re all open to the curious and wide eyed here.

Really, you don’t like the lingo 🙁 That’s one of my favourite bits. I love the sassiness of it all. That’s why I’ve stuck around for so long. My current fav mystic word is “bingle,” makes me laugh. Also I like the fact that sometimes I have to re-read it. I have a tendency to skim to much. So when I go back and read it again. I get better insights.

Seriously, with the Solfreggio, the pineal gland activator just chills me right out. Totally need it lately- was working outside on my house and the cold I kicked with grapefruit seed extract came right back. arg. Last night dreamed of my father who has passed on, and my Mom who I will be visiting tomorrow. So I expect a message from the living, someone I haven’t heard from in awhile. Either way, sleep is elusive. Am supposed to be relaxed- am on vacation! Oddly enough, if I play Firefly episodes on my ipod I relax and drift right off. sci-fi… Read more »

Hope you can enjoy your vaykay Rox. Know I usually get a little something around Thanksgiving when actually have a four day weeked. Down time is truly down with body finally doing a big “ahhh” and needing huge amounts of sleep. Someone else mentioned here about their “mariage dream”. Had a dream last night that I had my back to someone (felt like my ex husband which of course I was actually married to), but I had my back to him and noticed I had very little covers to cling to. Is quite apparent to me what that means or… Read more »

thanks hon, am needing some altitude adjustment with the fam… your dream sounds like what you have been describing, I feel for you, being alone myself. I got your back from over here 🙂
I welcome the chance to purge the conscious BS in sleep. Beats doing it awake, sometimes. I was comforted by my dream, but I really miss my Dad, we had Saturns conjunct and he really ‘got’ me. Mom and I are both high-strung and can be like two scratchy violins, lol. Love her, tho.

Kind of on the same topic: started working with a Scorpio Mercury this fall who said she hates not knowing what the doctors are thinking….needs to be *inside* their heads. Granted, being nurses we all feel that way in general so that we’re on the game plan, but the way she said that made me think she *had* to have something in Scorpio. And already knowing she was a Libra, all I needed was her birthyear and….wola! Sorry, I just love those moments when I see astro manifest in real life. *slinks away* I have Mercury in Cancer opposite Neptune,… Read more »

Mercury in Scorps can be so exhausting. I know because I am one and I even annoy myself. Lol!

SourPatch

Srsly, I wish I had the focus of a Scorp Merc but the closest I can hope for is a natal Merc/Pluto trine which is kind of a chore to access when you also have a Merc/Neptune opposition. ADD central. I don’t know if I find the ones I know of exhausting though, since the convo is usally so easy with them (we agree on practically everything! LOL).

Mercury in Scorp native here too! I often find myself doing the Scorpio mindreading tactic of “I’m going to stare at you until my steely gaze unnerves you enough to reveal all your secrets”. All while maintaining a poker face where no one can read my secrets, which are all securely under lock and key. I feel like a lot of Mercury in Scorp types are interested in things like hypnosis and ESP, using your mind to find things out in a stealthy manner.

Sourpatch, I think Georgesand may have been talking about Merc Scorps being exhausting to their themselves not others. All the deep, intense thinking and processing etc… *Exhausting* Im a Merc Scorp so can relate.

Loooove the image! Just got back from a week at the yoga ranch – I am SO tuned in to this astro-vibe.

One thing I am working on is creating a ‘sacred space’ in my home in which to meditate and practice yoga. This requires some serious minimising of possessions in order to create space. As I look around me, the days are numbered for many of my chattels.

i am sort of camping i my house – no desire to nest – but undeniable urge to yoga and meditation – virtually empty rooms seem to encourage –

anyone up on the symbolism of weddings in dreams? had a dream this morning – preparing for the grand entrance kind of stuff – family support – big crowd – white and bemusement – white wedding fairytales are not my kinda thing – startles me because it is a repeat, first had the dream a couple of years ago

am not in a relationship of any type, quite solitary …

The Empress
The Empress

Maybe the desire for union with another. Or it could mean the joining of the conscious and unconscious in yourself. Have you been thinking of either of these things lately? As you said these type of weddings are not your thing maybe it’s reinforcing the belief in yourself that you’re quite happy as you are, no need for the big OTT union as you have that with yourself.

Hey thanks so much Empress … the conscious/unconscious may well be true through recent strong urge to clarify my strength through meditation and yoga, interestingly in response to my wobblyness over my psychic-mate finding love with another … the best thing about saturn is when things blow up, the saturnian structures will always catch you relatively gently … i like that in this dream I was a little closer to the actual ceremony itself than in the previous … so perhaps am moving closer to the “stepping through” of a transition … yee ha. Thanks again xx

I remember having a similar dream some time ago. It was at a time in my life, that marriage etc definitely not on the agenda. In fact I had decided that I was never going to be married. Some time later, 3 years ?, I met my wife and on that day got a flash of that wedding dream. People who have known me on this blog for a while know, that the moment I saw her, I knew she was my wife. The dream helped.

davidl, i like knowing this, thank you, i remember you describing that moment, she was sitting in a cafe? and your shyness about approaching … similarly to you, i struggle to see a marriage in my life, it’s not that i am not open to it, but i know it is a rare love that equals marriage for me

… oh! and just remembered, that the focus of my yoga prac at moment is opening up space direct to heart chakra … shit am thick as short planks lately

If Pluto is in Capricorn and Jupiter is in Taurus, –and Mercury is in Scorpio– how can they form a “mind-bending TRINE”? Mercury needs to be in Virgo for them to be trining.

Also “Sanskrit monks” doesn’t make sense. It should be “Hindu/Buddhist monks chanting mantra tracks in Sanskrit.”

Sorry –but if nits exist, they must be picked.
