Astro-Psyched

I know, i know. The astro-weirding of the now (you don’t actually want to know how long this goes on for lol) is all about confronting & vanquishing ye olde demons holding you back. It’s tres psychological…but completely brilliant if you can hack it. Genius Outlets: Writing (not stalkery emails – cathartic journal-keeping) doing your Jupiter (like archery, plucky optimism, humor and protesting on behalf of the weak, not consuming enough crap so that the ground shakes when you walk) AND cultivating Geminis by hand-feeding them tender morsels of gossip, buzz-words, in-jokes and jargon. Compulsory: Kindness to Librans.

12th house virgo

So, exactly HOW nice are we suppose to be to Librans? My Libran friend came over, which is pretty usually. But he hit on me, which is not. We’ve spent a lot of time together the last few years. I’ve known him since childhood. He told me he is gay. I told him obviously he’s bi. Anyway, we had a talk about romance between us and how its just not for us, how we’re friends and he insists he’s more gay than not anyway and he gets how we’re friends etc. And that was like a year or so ago.… Read more »

Yah – you should have spent that thirty seconds rubbing paint onto canvas with your bottom whilst listening to The Goldberg Variations. Actually, you could probably blog and do that at the same time 😀 Now THAT”S what I call ART 😀

You could do it as an installation and call it “Procrastination in E” :p

PS: Is he cute ? Do you like him ? People do change…..

12th house virgo

Oh, I love him dearly – as a friend, like a brother. He’s in a bad spot as he doesn’t accept his impulses unless he’s drugged into acting on them. He wants someone to be his Domme, has to hit on a female every once in awhile to remind himself he can. And his repression shows in the way he stuffs himself. He looks like a pregnant man. Making that situ romantic would be bad all around. He needs to accept himself. No domme can do that for him. Or, maybe she could, if he paid for the service. Again… Read more »

Well, I think this blog was posted on 9/7/12… so that day was pretty good. I came to a realization this w/e that I am working in a bi-polar situation. There are weeks things are good and then there are weeks that are brutally bad. .. No consistency with flow of energies and production. Everything is bumpy. Had an ok day yesterday but today feeling a little sad. Not sure if it is the let down of my w/e being over and back to the bi-polar situation OR my insecurities with my interview Friday that sounds so exciting and uplifting.… Read more »

The Scorp

I guess I need some Phoenix advice by Mystic, seeing they’re available now… 😉

The Scorp

Not so easy times… I suffer very heavy bouts of jealousy. Mostly to do with my beautiful but slippery Virgo Man (Saggo Asc/ Moon in Pisces). I try patience and deep breathing, but it doesn’t come naturally to a Scorp (Scorp Asc) like me to try and tame my emotions.

Scorporation, Inc.

In my experience, taming emotions is a waste of time and energy– not to mention the fact that it’s akin to shackling yourself! No good. Instead of “taming,” try redirecting: let your fierce intensity run wild down another road, in another way. Don’t put a cork in it: find a way to give it wings and plenty of room to fly! 😉

Had a really bizarre hurtful friendship ending today, so out of the blue and unexpected, and citing reasons which I was totally unaware of…upon reflection I can see the murkier underpinnings but still shocked!

Aphrodite Rising

I have had a week of doing stuff all, procrastinating, reading detective romances (and I’m totally in awe of all the women writers who are so creative), until yesterday when all of a sudden the confusion about how to focus the book I’m writing fell away. Procrastination can be great, it allowed me to let go, read furiously while my creative self hauled its ass into gear, and at the right time I read the right words and knew how to proceed. So this little Libran Sun/Libran Rising is rather enjoying the Zap Zone. What I’m not enjoying is the… Read more »

That is great LL! My double Leo Mother never learnt to swim and was deathly afraid of water…or going on a cruise (which she never did)…Cat’s don’t usually care for water right?

I have changed so much over the last few years…..think saturn and pluto transits back to back and with each other.

If I don’t write in my journal the most inane, rambling, incoherent, going-no-where, hateful, arrogant, pitiful thoughts parading in my head, I’ll kill my soul.

That tired of Saturn squaring my Cap Moon… Anything that resembles Gem Sun/Pisces rising in my psyche has taken a hike.

andromeda

Aww. Feel better soon Q. What a shocking thought, to ‘kill’ one’s ‘soul’… Perhaps it is pain that is showing you the way out, the words, the parade of thoughts need to be shown the door? A diary is a kind of door. What other doors appeal to you?

Quadrupled

Thanks Andromeda, problem is I overdid my Saturn and forgot spontaneous joy..

sweetpea

Oh Q, I know we have same Cap Moon and degree…

Know what you mean. I need to journal today but the depth of it all sometimes overwhelms me and so I go emo immobile which can be soul killing in a sense when not letting stuff out and just stagnating…

Yesterday I was diagnosed with pneumonia after having been treated for “bronchitis” for weeks. They’ve changed my antibiotics so hopefully my improvement will be rapid. Interesting, the only other time I have had pneumonia was when I was 2 months old.

Hopefully lucky jupiter will help you heal quickly! Glad you know what you have now so you can treat it.

Let me know how you go! What decided you to go with hypno? Sounds like a smart idea to me. The unconscious is always trying to voice your secrets – horror for a Scorp! I think it is always best to dig them out and study them yourself there are no surprises that way 🙂 . Saturn suits some – discipline and cheekbones!

When stretched and looking for answers i learned the tough way to avoid the dire readings of astro. Love astrodienst for many reasons, but even their readings are at times too harsh, for example, when i’m fragile. You are supporting what probably feels like cast of thousands, if you include all your own thoughts and emotional states as well as your n&d. So what you need is womanly, down to earth yet encouraging astrodvice, and that is definitely Mystic. Kim Falconer is also one wise and empowering astrowoman, too.

Decluttering entire home. A clean out and discard (recycle at op shop) the material things i no longer need. Clearing space for new energy and things, people coming in.

Whatever this astro is, “i’m lovin’ it”, to borrow the slogan of a certain reptilian fast food chain. Vanquishing demons by slaying my dragons.

Yeah, I noticed that below– and I LOVE pickled plum onigiri. You’re making me hungry!

Thanks to percocet, I spent three hours last night doing what felt like birthing a baby out of my *ass*. Colace added today, consequently, and am now only noshing on the softest foods. Throwing back gallons of water.

Save me a plate 😉

Prune juice. Brings water into the bowel so softens and moves without cramping. Drink one cup ie: 250ml, then wait 30 mins. If nothing, drink another 250mls and wait near the toilet 😀

I had to take antiemetics which bunged me up for two days – was terrified to go near the loo, but the prune juice did the trick without shredding me bits 😀

Be glad she was stupid enough to put it in writing.

Once you challenge them they will be oh-so-nice to you about this. Most of them will secretly love you for it, a few will hate you. But they will all respect you. The question is really whether it is worth your energy to deal with dinosaurs. best of luck and hope you feel better soon!

Libretta, that is such a wise assessment of how these things work.

Scorporation, Inc.

Scorporation, Inc.

Ha!

Her response floored me, because I’ve known her for a few years now and not only has she always been an unfailing source of support, but she’s also ridiculously astute. I’ve always held her in high esteem because of these attributes, not merely for her title.

That she came at me like she did– AND put it in writing and cc’d it to everyone– was so shocking! And as you suggest, libretta, *helpful*. Sadly.

hey, what a story – and yes, slow down and rest, rest, rest. if you are employed by a university in australia then your superannuation has a provision for short term/long time disability where you get three quarters of your salary etc for the time needed to rest.
if you want to work hwvr and the director is saying no then you can challenge of course – it is a subject that was delegated to you?
that email to the faculty was unprofessional, possibly discriminatory and may have breached confidence. Take Her Down!

Andromeda

My Goddess but that is a horror story! I hope your ankle mends beautifully darling. Quite a life changing experience.
It never ceases to amaze me how people can be so unfeeling about how vulnerable you can feel after a shock like that! Fancy cc’ing everyone about this matter which is quite personal. She doesn’t sound like she has a knack for politics in the very least degree, or like, relationships. Take care!

Scorporation, Inc.

Right on, Andro Creatrix! Big hugs, sister xo

You’re so right: this has been a huge, life-changing experience– even though I have no real idea of how or why. I only have the most surreal yet vague *sense* that this “accident” is huge. Huge!

My sis-in-law was the first person on the scene, and since we had a 30 min wait for paramedics to arrive (because I live that far away from civilization), she got me focused and calm with deep breathing exercises for that half-hour. Deep breathing kept me from freaking out and passing out. It’s funny because when my ankle actually broke, I didn’t feel a thing.

Broken ankles…. they signify a change in direction in life/goals. The fact that this happened (if your interested), suggests that the life direction your currently on is not aligned with your true purpose.

Yah – I have to admit that my Virgo rising is a *tad* uptight.

Just a tad…. 😀

I feel your pain. It was the same for me with martial arts/sports. That ain’t stuff for a girl, yo! So approx. I missed out 15-20 years, the best years, from a physical point of view. I do agree that when you put your heart/passion/etc behind it you can become good quite quickly, as I see with myself. Alas, the whole issue about starting late does make me slightly impatient as well, as I feel like I have to make up for the “lost” years. Oh and (not directed at any of you): How dare you tell me I shouldn’t… Read more »

Very few people in the arts in Aust make anything off what they do, that you would consider ‘a living’, Or make enough money to pay even half of their bills. If you enjoy whatever, then do it. These people who have been at it for 25, 30 years have been at it with dedication and discipline. I don’t see any likelihood of these developing overnight in you, so suggest you dabble in what you enjoy and lose the entitlement fantasies.

milleunanotte

The arrogance of the word “dabble” and the judgment that she cannot develop discipline and dedication… god who cares if it’s even true. It’s Dom Triff’s dream and DomTriff’s lesson to learn the hard way (possibly) whether or not she can make that come true. Calling it an entitlement fantasy is really bitter. So…anonymous, i’m intrigued…what astro do you have to offer that might make your comment less a personal attack and more a strong opinion that gives an insight into some sort of astro personality?

misty blue

what’s so arrogant about the word “dabble”? Gee, can’t anyone express an opinion on here without being attacked?! I totally agree with Anonymous and don’t think she comes across as bitter at all. She makes complete sense. I was actually thinking the same thing the other day. If you all spent more time painting or writing and less time TALKING about it on an astro blog. You might just get somewhere. Or maybe not. We can’t all be CEO’s or famous artists no matter how hard you wish and pray. As Mystic would say “get your Awesome on” and become… Read more »

Just a little… ok, maybe a lot. TIME is of the essence! 🙂

Domestic Triffid

Deary me, some people woke up on the wrong side of their gumnut didn’t they ? I’ve been “dabbling” for years. I’m ready to start earning money from my love of crafting. I hardly think that that’s expecting to “develop overnight”. I can’t think why anyone would have a problem with me wanting to take my work to the next level, or think that its some sort of “entitlement fantasy” (what an odd thing to say – what, am I not entitled to try to make a go of this ?!) I think saying that any of us are on… Read more »

nah, not feeling crap at al. Life’s is great actually. I was just agreeing with Anonymous about people with a sense of entitlement in a general sense. I have no interest in putting anyone in their place. I think your quite lovely DG. Don’t take it personally. Good luck with your crafting. 🙂

davidl

No, an Aries would have told her just to shut the fuck up and go back to the hole she came out of…then the bullet points

Domestic Triffid

LOL. That Stellium is in my third house, so I do get a bit wordy :D:D Thanks David ! You can be my Bouncer any time !!

Good to see your spiritual side coming out, David.

This is clearly in an in-club where people gather to blow smoke up each others’ arses. Keep on puffing.

Amusing so many found me bitter, and the use of the word ‘dabble’ so offensive. I was being factual and indeed on rereading the initial post that I responded to, I see the same whiny, bitter, blaming, entitlement and the same fantasies of brilliance in six easy steps (and less than ten years) as I saw the first time.

davidl

Misty aka anon, love the way you support your arguments with comments by yourself as another commenter.
You’ve done it before and its just boring. Why come here if we don’t meet your high standards ?

Oh, my spiritual side, hmmmm, maybe I should have said….move towards the light, a higher dimension is calling, we are not worthy of your presence, bye bye

milleunanotte

It’s not the single word, Misty, and it’s not the preceding comments, which is an opinion and a valid one. I think the WHOLE LAST SENTENCE, in its own context, and with the use of the word dabble is a put-down. You have no idea what people on this blog spend time doing, except what they choose to express, and perhaps spending time on the blog IS what some like doing. A person’s ambitions and desires are their own, and important fuel for action. Your comment about TIME is certainly something i agree with. The comment about not necessarily earning… Read more »

Hi Anonymous I know lots of people who make money doing what they love in Australia including plenty of people in the Arts. Why would you want someone not to try for something they want to do? Why would you assume she didn’t have discipline and dedication? Why do want her to just dabble instead of going hard core? What’s it to you? I have changed industries a couple of times in my life and being in the new one, yep, you sure do have to bring your dedication and discipline to get up to speed fast, and you can… Read more »

HUH?

leogroover

Agree anon I just spent the weekend working on a music festival and met the whole town who work volunteer. i must have done 40 hrs on photography and social media and it was the best thing for my confidence, skills and meeting new people who now love me. the sublime music was unbelievable in this tiny country hall. it has excited me again after being very low this year. Now sans Ex I’ve found my mojo again with this work I find creative and uplifting. so being in the Arts doesn’t pay the bills but the upside is amazing

Charles

I thought every “Now” was an “Eternal Now.” Or maybe avoiding the cosmological or metaphysical issues, it just seems like this Now is taking an eternity to become “Then.”

sweetpea

lol…

Hermeswitch

Im going with the evolutionary and hanging in there but this is really leaving me feeling like everything I touch is turning to shit. Yes I’m evolving but I feel like this total black hole is sucking me down. Meanwhile trying to hold my nerve. Yes, Leo. I thought these times were going to be great but frankly I’m struggling everywhere.

Pi

I ended up deleting my possibly stalkery “flirtatious” – and now, never to be sent – email to That Guy.

– everyone pls include gemini rising in the sharing gossip / words / fun stuff 🙂

WOOHOO

I’ve had half a week of “That Guy” moments. Haven’t caved because I’ll just look desperate and lonely. Especially as all I can think to say is: I miss you.

I was talking to my Gemini boss – she had never heard “411” being used. Hahaha, she was so spiffed when she heard it – now she constantly givin me the 411 on everything, haha.

Anonymous

Exactly. I have found that the best way to handle these moments is to imagine that I am the person receiving the email / msg… and suddenly everything changes!

leogroover

I too have been using that technique anon and it always makes me cringe. i’m weaning myself off the OCD texting person I use to be and OCDing myself back to mental well being. Had a lapse last week texting the ex but no more. Same week I had to face the ex girlfriend demon on the weekend (i knew her she didn’t know me scenario) but I did not waste a nano sec on it. feel so free er rer rer.

Charles

Yeah, I wish more people would delete that creepy stalky email. Just last night, I got creepy stalky email from a nationally syndicated sex columnist. I decided to look her up: Virgo of course. No, I’m not going to sleep with you, honey, no matter how angry you get.

anonymous

Is the columnist Candace Bushnell? LOL

Charles

No, never heard of her. But I’m not going to name and shame Crazy Miss VIrgo, even though she is desperately in need of naming and shaming.

fire_grrl

I was trying to convince myself that all the shit coming up over the last couple of months was just coming up for me to resolve and close the door on…. I don’t know how much of this I can take. Highly anxious, lost state.

Nic

I’m feeling it Mystic… It’s utterly draining but I refuse to back down. I think I finally get what you meant by the Libran Whim of Steel. I have it, I’m using it, I’m going to kick some serious ass with it.

It’s nice to know the reason behind all the headfuckery. Thanks for keeping me sane(ish).

Pegasus

Does this mean also be super nice to Libran Moon and Libran Risings.
Just be nice to everyone would be a safe option?

Scorched Earth

Nice to all is probably a great mantra Pegs 🙂

Speaking of which..can you extend a lil kindness by way of advice to a fellow centaur 🙂

Is there any particular reason why my gravatar profile would not work. Have set it up and nothing is showing and I figured it should as it’s not that complicated right?!

Scorched Earth

LOL it finally worked!

And.. that now means I can extend some kindness to my notebook and not hurl it across the room 😉

This is my disappearing dragonfly. They are symbolic of illusion yeah in terms of medicine and this one actually gave me a live demo!

Pegasus

Glorious creatures with their rainbow wings,can why they symbolise Illusion from that pix.

milleunanotte

Beautiful picture. May i add that they’re carnivorous and territorial?
😆 just a bit of faerie thing to sprinkle some bite into a sweet image.

But i think it’s necessary and true…especially if you talk about shedding illusions…not always sad…often wondrous!

Scorched Earth

🙂

A bit of fae mischief is fine with me. He certainly was that day. Crystal clear 3d one pic, like this one the very next lol.

Did not know that stuff. I have many in my yard.

Anonymous

i have none in mine but some months back i had one following me from room to room inside the house…

frankly i think it was a damselfly which is v similar

Bless you! Over morning coffee my eyes have glazed over with a too hard kinda stance 😉

Later today I will have a look, out for a bit myself. Thank you and no, didn’t initially realise it was you 🙂

Kat

My philosophy is to try to be nice to everyone. It helps when you’re trying to be nicer to yourself!

I’ve been on the Aqua/Uranian thought-diet where I’ve been trying to cut down on saying/thinking mean things about others. It’s done wonders for my own self-esteem… So even the most selfish of people have no excuse for being awful to others!

Scorched Earth

Yes there is a lot of merit and good that comes from that way of thinking I agree Kat.

Still I also think it is ok to let the truth of all feelings flow through you rather than turn them into something else and/or dismiss them. This does no harm or causes no residue if they flow ‘through’ and are released properly. Yes properly means not at someone else or not at oneself in a harmful way.

Pegasus

Yes, being non judgemental is a total liberation.

milleunanotte

But i’ve found you can’t force it, as Scorchy said, or your so-called good energy is really tarnished. BHetter truthful and powerful if slightly unpalatavble, than false and damging and i’m sorry about my typing it is really bad today no matter where i put the keyboard (heheh no i haven’t tried it up there). I’m thinking well these days and i notice how i address myslef in my thoughts. You would cringe to know how it used to be. I have decided it’s fine not to forgive certain things either as long as i don’t let it inform my… Read more »

You are totes ‘bincredible’ Maybe even fanmazingilliant!! lol xx

fallen angel

YES to ALL! I’m on the Kindness to Librans curve already. Emo-supporting lovely Libran sister, saving my Libran IT guy a slice of cake, and yes, football cum domestic bonding with the Double Libran tomorrow.

Have literally just emailed a Gemini colleague, scheduling to journal but the demon bits? Meeeh. I’m beginning to think the Cappo Comedy Writer is likely one of them..

Scorched Earth

Yes I was wondering about Librans. The ones I know seem very fragile right now.. battle weary?

I’m actually liking this astro overall. Tough, sure but evolutionary and I’m drawing my bow 🙂

Pegasus

OOOah, the DL for a date? Glad to hear that as you really are good friends when all is said & done 🙂
Have fun Baby Girl x

fallen angel

Oh, yes the Double Libran’s recent life in months past is literally a country song (got dumped, dog died, town sucks, etc) so defo battle weariness.

And thanks Pegs, it will be a sweet and sighing goodbye.. off to the windy city he goes and there this version of the story ends. In a way, it proves my resolve in treating the people I’m with well.. I’m part of their experience of life and why shouldn’t it be happy?

Just realized it IS a date. It’ll be nice, I hope.
