How Not To Do It

Filed in Uncategorized

 

At the risk of stating the obvious-to-sane-people, I am typing this in bed, the most ill i have been in years and i would just like to say that soldiering on when you have the flu – on the dubious grounds that your illness will think it is clearly biz as normal and go away – DOES NOT WORK.

It’s called Vertigo Flu, it’s disgusting and it is NOT the manifestation of Saturn on my Midheaven that i was looking for. I wanted to be breezing around in shoes a la the above, getting shit done and doing power-meetings. Or something. But no, it’s barracks confinements, an ridiculous array of herbal AND pharma that i am snorting, gargling, spraying & swallowing AND the hideous Saturn-style realization that i actually do have no back-up for if i am sick. Who wants me to do a really cynical and embittered ‘fuq you Saturn’ rant when i am better?

So okay and with epic timing, i have a whole lot of emails that my intern can’t answer AND none of the gift baskets i sent people have apparently been delivered. When i phone up the establishment, there is an infuriatingly naff voicemail with “ho-ho-ho” and the sound of sleigh bells/crap Xmas Muzak + the info that they’ve all fuqed off to basically another galaxy until the middle of January.

So i left demonic sounding raspy croaked threats type message and now i am taking my 2013 Resolutions to a whole new psycho level.

And i am doing Daily Horoscopes – they may be a little bit late due to Saturn Flu but they are coming. Okay, so thoughts?

Also, this is not a pity play lol BUT i am not going to blog at all over Xmas & New Year but the Horoscopes continue as usual, the new year ahead scheduler is hopefully going to be ready (so you can click on a date far ahead to see if it’s good or not) AND i am going to post cool updates about the rabid Plutonic family baggage-annhilating Full Moon on the 28th and other things on the Weekly Horoscopes page. And i am making a password protected secret post so subscribers can chat amongst themselves, share thoughts re the Horoscopes etc over the hols.

So it is basically a brilliant time to subscribe.

Looking after everyone else but yourself is no good. I burned out big-time and you don’t want that to happen. Heck, WE don’t want that to happen. Take your time to recover, your body is saying, enough is enough, I need time out. And we who love this site will survive if you go missing a few days to do a proper recuperation job. Best to do the right thing now than flake out full-time like I did. Listen to Mum Mo, Darl 😀

The Flu has hit me here too – I’m meant to be spending this time reflecting on 2012 and working on my new business for launch next year – except I feel so crappy that all I can think about it holing up and sleeping!

OMG, Mystic, that was the same guilt-tripping I went through when I came down with a nasty sinus infection / flu / who-knows-what after the eclipse full moon at the end of Nov. I couldn’t concentrate at work and I was super down, but just kept thinking I needed to “improve my attitude” and work harder. Then I was forced to take antibiotics, which messed with my mental state even worse. It wasn’t until I was finally clear of the sickness and antibiotic hammer that my head cleared and I realized I had been unjustly harsh with myself. I mean,… Read more »

P.S. And when I got better by the new moon, considering that I had taken ill at the full moon, it made me even a more loyal follower of lunar astrology.

Mysti, i have skipped reading what everyone else wrote so will probably repeat what they’re saying anyway… srsly just do a Pisces and disappear for while. you’re fuqing sick. People miss a few days of horoscopes? Here’s my thinking: 1. Don’t be a dick to people, yes even your annoying sister / neighbour / mother / evil undead father / stepmother / etc. 2. Call the police or an ambulance if shit’s going down in a bad way. 3. If shit’s not going down in a bad way, wear a fuqing smile and realise that it’s not all about you… Read more »

Sorry, those numbered dot points were my made-up horoscope in the event of Mystic checking out of work-land for a few days. Not advice to Mystic because lawd even I am not so insane as to proffer made-up horoscopes to my astrologer who is suffering a stymied Mars in Cap moment. xx 😀

O Myst, the summer bug going around got ya! So sorry to hear and so many i have heard in Adders down with a ‘flu’. Seems like an end of 2012 cleansing? Remember about OPS & taking it onboard subliminally & subconciously, we get full of it unknowingly. So you take time out to know what really matters That was alsp the Frog message in the bird pond, cleansing. Sometimes i think one needs to eat dirt to build immunity, think it’s worked for me, so perhaps it’s relax release & re-energise time, please zen out nothing can be forced.… Read more »

Life can really test us. The first sign that we aren’t being true to ourselves is when we get sick. God is saying “slow down”. (I saw this in another post). In 2009 I was thrown a curve ball after putting myself through torture with a possible career change while still working full-time. I got sick. It was one of those diagnosis where you fall to the ground and just cry. Well, after a couple of days I got myself back up, went to China for 2 weeks and got grounded. I said, “Ok, God, I give up”. It changed… Read more »

Two of the best belly laughs of incredulity on consulting the Oracle (MM) this evening,

Give a spin MM, laughter is the best meds after all

Dearest Mystic, Your universe is telling you to stop. I am going through the most enormous life changes ever and every time I think the “i”s are dotted and the “t”s crossed something else comes up. What I have learned during the past 3 years of Saturn in Libra is that sometimes forces beyond our control are in play to make us realise that we are not in fact in control. Have your body and brain meltdown in this down time…you need the rest so you are ready for the magnificence of 2013. We will chat amongst ourselves and be… Read more »

Absolutely … just get out of the slog and S-T-O-P. Most importantly sans guilt. We will miss you but will appreciate you so much more when you’re back :-). Anyone who can’t survive a week or so without you could probably do with going cold turkey for a bit to reset the neurons anyway.
Gotta love it tho, look at all the cyber caring you’ve inspired!

urgh that is hideous. it’s funny for those who are still doing things outside of the paid holiday season madly trying to work around the clock and you get the xmas till jan beep. no where near as ill but I am fighting flu, 2 coldsores and fatigue to hell only lessoning my march toward friday when I can sit down for 5, off to see if I can get funding or some kind of biz aid now. Isn’t it cruel how you can be so doing the right thing and still get smashed with flu. Speedy recovery lady xx

Mystic, i’m so sorry you have this. I had it earlier in the year, but on top of my other health issues, i didn’t realise in time and tried to soldier on. Body says NO. Mind says we want to be busy…you’re Merc in Aries, too. Plus i guess Mars in Virgo gets irritated at all the Things That Need to be Done. Enjoy the rest and relaxation where possible, requisition some beautiful flowers, and yes you can direct the embittered Saturn crank anyway you please. It’ll be a great read! Best wishes for healing and freshness to return your… Read more »

Saturn is an interesting old bugga. But in truth, it’s that old chestnut of it reminding us that we can only do so much. Seems to me that having Scorpio on the Midheaven means you could push through until the cows come home. Until Saturn clearly herds them up and brings them home. Go some Olive Leaf that doesn’t taste like some rancid petri dish and an epsom salts bath too. And sleep. And rest. Then sleep some more. Father time can faqing wait.

Hope you feel better soon Mystic, always found a combo of heaps of colloidal silver / tissue salts & hompeopathic Pluton works a treat. Possibly because you can’t OD on any of them and can take them every time you think how sick of being sick you are xx

Oh I know this place.. Beware when it gets to the mouth ulcers and you can no longer drink or eat. Argghh! On the upside of illness (it can be a privilege!), I was hallucinating and throwing up last weekend and I had the most fantastic experience: As I watching my little spectrum boy at play in the garden, I mentally called out to him “Hi!” in my mind a few times. He then quizzically put a pretend phone to his ear and looked about and said, “H’lo? Mummy??”. I tried a few more different things that day that were… Read more »

Ha! Yes, no mushrooms. Even being ill is not a long term solution. Actually, I really appreciated those who gave me advice & support the last week re my little boy here. I had a real breakthrough in terms of understanding autism & what it means in our family. That’s when I made more effort to contact him via sending visual mental pics, and it totally worked! I read that if autism keeps being diagnosed at the current rate all children will be autistic by 2037 or something. Then I thought, maybe that isn’t so bad. Autistic people can’t lie… Read more »

I was watching this show and this doctor said that everyone had some form of autism, it’s a matter of degree.
I’m happy that your experiments worked. 🙂
There was an online link where peeps take the test to find out the degree of one’s autism.
The doctor presenting the show took it himself and found out his range, for him it was mild.

Dear MM, pl chill. Are you up to reading? Madeleine L’Engle’s “Wrinkle in Time” or “The Hobbit” or “The Mists of Avalon” by Marion Zimmer Bradley are great reads – espec if you like Kim F’s books. I have a theory about the sun transiting out of Sagg and into Cap. I think it is super hard on our bodies. I don’t know why but that’s my experience. Maybe its the energy going from free-flowing to oh so constricted? Hope you feel better soon.

I am just at the tale end of this vertigo thing. It’s the second time this year I’ve had it and it’s just awful. Have follow-up doc appt tomorrow to check things out but I’m thinking now maybe not a good idea to be around other sick people and get worse. Anyway, have been majorly Saturning on since I’ve been feeling better – working out like a demon, decluttering and cleaning, pet to the vet, eye test, the works. I say at the end of this awfulness Mystic you will not be Saturn girl but Queen of Saturn. In the… Read more »
