Are You A High Functioning Flake?

Ossie Clark Seventies Super Model Plane

The Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces) are often High Functioning Flakes, confounding the other Zodiac modalities with their ability to generate success amid chaos.

Flakes are everywhere, obviously, but it’s the High Functioning Flakes who thwart all expectations. The Highest Functioning Flake I ever knew was a Gemini who worked in television.

He was such a flake nobody who met him could ever believe he’d be able to hold down a job, let alone have amassed several million dollars-  in the days when a million dollars had meaning – and a reputation as a game-changer.

People were always shocked, literally jaw-gobbed, to find out he was actually successful. How was he a flake? God, let me count the ways. He took women on a first date to a strip club. Having left school at 14 and run away to work (he said) in a circus, he openly denounced the rank idiocy of rote education until one day he announced that he’d been accepted as an adult scholar to a prestigious university. Cue enormous interest in academia and some success in philosophy. 

Therapy And A Colonic Every 2nd Day

He went through a stage where he had therapy and a colonic every 2nd day.  He would be at social functions and just disappear. Mr Gemini was in a choir. He had a friend who was an arms dealer. Weirdly, he was a stalwart of some charity run by nuns, who adored him. But he was also an early adopter of shamanic rituals. He could not cook – not even boil an egg or bake a potato – but one day signed up for a cooking course and became expert. He went on a vow of silence for a month when he decided that all his anecdotes were off-color and dated.

My High Functioning Flake friend took the contrary view of any conversation going. He barely slept and actively resented the need to sleep. He thought crystals were a racket, the modern version of hares feet carried as a talisman. However, he used the I-Ching to pick stocks and got a rare bat sanctuary going in his back yard. His lovers were driven mad by his blunt refusal to contemplate any manner of commitment. 

A Secret Set Of Rules From A Playbook Created In Another Dimension

When he died it was relatively young (Chiron Return) and via a strange, very quick acting exotic illness. He told nobody, sought no pity and went away to some motel in Mexico to do it in privacy like a cat under a hedge. It took people months to figure out what had happened because his orbit was already so erratic.

High Functioning Flakes run their lives by magic, surrealism and a secret set of rules from a playbook created in another dimension. Key astrological indicators; Lots of energy in the Mutable signs and Uranian/Aquarius points. They have a set of beliefs that would freak any member of the skeptic’s society but they make it work.

Are you a High Functioning Flake? Or do you know any?

“A secret set of rules created in another demension.” I can relate.

Mystic you were lucky to have known this soul or entity.

So sad and darkly funny (it’s a Gemini thing) that he ran away to a motel to die like a cat.

Oh no it’s sad, too independent.

Hahahahaaa I love this so much!! I’ve thought about this a lot over the years, people are always saying ‘you’re so organised’ to me…. I’m like yeah I may appear that way because if I don’t keep a certain amount in check I will literally space out and turn to liquid, start 1000000 things and never finish one! (Think that’s very saggo). It’s like you become high functioning as a coping mechanism for your extreme flakiness. It’s that classic case of the one who is the worst in the class but who has the most determination ends up doing the… Read more »

Oh my gosh. How did I miss this? Totally me! But I come across as Saint Virgo to those who don’t know me well enough, so some miss the epic flakiness.

He sounds amazing. I’m a flake afraid to be a flake, I think. I can’t commit to social situations in advance, I always want to keep my options open – for everything – work and romance too. This guy’s my new hero.

Girl

PS. Sorry to ask a flakey question, but how do you calculate your Chiron return and is that an indicator of death?!?

Girl

Hahaha this is a brilliant post. So funny and full of detail. I have been one. But I am on some kind of flake sabbatical right now. I think the moment you see you’re being a flake you kind of want to un-flake for a little bit. Till that gets boring.

I am more like a high functioning sardine. Full moon eclipse in my 6th house today too. Got a lot of work to get into the can – see what I mean? 😉

Sometimes I wish I was a flake – and to be a high functioning one would be beyond my wildest dreams. Totally opposite to me now.

Yes, admittedly I am a HFF. I really wish I were something different, but I cannot be. What happens to a person when they have quite a few high interests that seem quite contrary to another, yet they are genuinely interested in them? What can a person do when a brand new idea just strikes and refuses to sleep? No matter how hard I’ve tried in the past to suppress these things, they spring back with a vengeance. I now don’t suppress my contrary interests, I simply don’t talk about them, but I still give a peculiar vibe that I… Read more »

I totally understand your para on the vibe I feel the same. Some people are drawn to mine for a hit, some are perplexed and I can see some are actively repelled but unsure why. Being Pisces, I see and feel their range of thoughts and microexpressions. Sometimes I feel compelled to make them feel better if they’re in the perplexed/ repelled group. On the plus side, the ones who love it, loooooove it!

i’m perplexed. this is like jumbo shrimp to me. when I read or hear flake, i think someone who will promise one thing but do another, and barely gets anything done. It’s like a stalemate, hardly successful. HFF gemini sounds successful – rather vogue and rogue. He’s high functioning and free. i don’t think wanting to live or experience life on a will and a whim is flaky, rather visionary. I guess it all comes down to boundaries and what we all define them as. His boundaries are obviously a mile wide and he needs a wide birth when it… Read more »

Nothing I am ashamed of, but even as a Sagg, I am not a believer in broadcasting the truth at all costs, and I use all of my Scorp bits to protect certain surviving family members from what would be the equiv of a nuclear bomb going off in their collective psyches, as this would serve no one – least of all me.

Ditto on the working through it and being at peace with where I’m at about it all. I think the outer planet thing was on Donna Cunningham’s site, but I can’t remember my scores except that I was a Venus person closely followed by some outer planets by a point or two. Like a lot of astrologers, I don’t think she took singletons into account – and they’re always been a stand out in the charts I’ve read so I didn’t bother to read too much into her quizzes.

12th house virgo

I’m pretty Plutoic. I can say I accept it, but that’s a process. I’m not really designed to fit in. After I got fired, I saw ways I could work on fitting in. What a mistake that would be. More independence is the way forward, not less. xoxo

Saturnalien

I’m pretty Plutonic too, with nearly half my chart in Scorp & my chart ruler Mercuy in 8th trine Pluto in 4th… definitely not cut out to fit in either. I have to say though, that self-employment brings up a whole new set of personal challenges and issues that have to be dealt with. I find it’s a much harder path in most respects, but I’d rather be growing painfully than slowly rotting away in the corporate world.

Anonymous

Hey flashfire, Pluto & Sun in Virgo here, maybe – Virgoan flaky is doing a 180? depends what else (pisces or gem) is going on in the chart also! Can’t illuminate how flakiness manifests, but relate to the brutal & sometimes unexpected clearing or cutting away the dross factor, talked about earlier in thread.
I think every sign has it’s own flakiness, really, some more than others though!!

flashfire

Yes, I’ve certainly seen that Virgo trait… they all hate clutter with purple passion. I’ve always thought of it as an extension of their personal hygiene. But Isn’t that the antithesis of Flaky?

12th house virgo

I’ve never been called flakey but I prefer my 12th house to my 6th so I am sure I am Neptunian at times. Is pisces flakey?

flashfire

I think of Pisces as the epitome of flakey. don’t you? But I mean that in a positive way. I’m so Neptunian it’s not even funny…ie. Pisces Moon trine Neptune & Jupiter and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

The only real flake behaviour I’ve seen in Virgos is hypochondria, if that qualifies.

But you know, it occurred to me as I read thru everyone’s comments that there were actually very few Virogs claiming flakey status so maybe this whole question is moot?

Anonymous

I guess I meant about clearing dross from life including toxic relationships and outdated friendships (aswell as clutter!) Maybe peeps don’t expect earthy, reliable, trusty and organised Virgs to do rapid turnaround 180’s or to cut contacts etc.. not sure how flaky that is, but perhaps when they’ve had enough of a certain situation – they’re outa there. Interpreted as flaky, but really just practical. Gone.

12th house virgo

I def reach a point with people/situations where I am done with them. Cut them off. I make final decisions suddenly.

flashfire

Yes, this totally agrees with the way I see Virgos. They will patiently bend to accommodate others for ages and ages, and then they kind of snap like an elastic and they’re gone. Myself? Most of the time I dither endlessly (might be Mars in Libra though?) and then just sorta go radio silent and slip out a side door. Which isn’t exactly a mature thing to do, but… well, it’s the truth.
The Virgo laser precise amputation is probably better.

Anonymous

Yep. Sounds like me too.

flashfire

Honestly, all you Virgos claiming to be flaky and such… I kinda don’t believe you. I have yet to meet a flaky Virgo and believe me, I’ve known a plethora of Virgos in my time (both sexes). And flaky is just so not a word I would apply to any of them! I think they have brilliant minds and stunning wit, but every single one of them I have know is uber together 95 percent of the time, very tidy, structured and orderly. Everything is planned to the -nth degree and in an astonishingly linear fashion. I simply boggle at… Read more »

Do tell! How do they express their flakiness? Maybe I’m just so flaky myself that I don’t see it?

This is hysterical!!! So true. I see that exactly when there’s a lot of mutability. I have a lot of cardinal in my chart so I am confounded. Although in my early 20’s I was Captain of the Space Cadet Club, not sure if that had anything to do with sex drugs and rock ‘n roll. The last thing I said to the love of my life very mutable Virgo was — In the past 4 years, I’ve noticed that you’ve changed jobs 4x, moved in the past year to get away from me and closer to your mom but… Read more »

So I celebrate the patron saint of the blog convo today. However, Saturn conj MC and Taurus moon I assume influence an over developed feeling of obligation and responsibility to commitments.

Interesting, I have a Taurus moon and have always attributed my love of quality, beauty, luxury and pampering to this. My home is my retreat.

Also hate being tied down… by full time or ‘serious’ job, and find it scary to commit to romantic relationship (not friendships, have loads of long term wonderful friendships with all sorts of people). Obsessed with stability in financial matters, have to be able to pay bills and like to have funds in the bank.

Saturnalien

I can relate to all of this Gem…

gemyogi

Yes. In high school my American art teacher Nancy (probably in her early 20s) talked to us about life… said, what do you want to do? All I wanted to do when I grew up was be and artist and travel the world…

And I thought ‘Yes, me too!!!” Now I’m finally an artist and once I make some money or get some grants will continue travelling the world!

Saturnalien

I initially put my needs for a stable home and income before my creative dreams and went for corporate slavery instead. That nearly killed me (literally), but since my escape and trying my hand at things I actually enjoy, it turns out I’m a total flake when it comes to being an artist (of sorts). I have 3 people waiting for custom tattoo designs and two people waiting for book illustrations – they have all been waiting for at least 5 years…

Don’t get me started on all the other shit I flake out on…

12th house virgo

As I cut the nicotine addiction I want to cut my paycheck addiction. How did you free yourself?

Saturnalien

Pluto squared my Mars/NN and saw me entangled in a plot parallel to “The Firm” it was terrifying and surreal – there was no going back after that.

I would definitely recommend a pro-active (fuq I hate that word) approach to freedom over the crucible method…

Scorpbot

Funny how a lot of us lead parallel lives. All I ever wanted as a kid was to be an artist AND own a home (Jupiter in Taurus in 4th) so naturally with a Cap Asc I would go down the corporate slavery / commercial art path too.

It was actually fun for the most part, nearly killed me in the end as well (Saturn in Virgo all over my Virgo Stellium). Left in 2008 when Pluto went into Cap. Now it’s time for the creative dreams 🙂

renalien@hotmail.com

My corporate slavery was in the law and finance – boring as fuq being surrounded by stuffed shirts, nasty office politics and white collar criminals. Good times 😐

milleunanotte

and that was just the staff…

Saturnalien

Indeed, the owner and manager of the last place I worked for were sociopathic (or NPD at the very least)…

Ms.

I nearly took a tattoo apprenticeship in 2001 and I kick myself for not doing that now, just I did not want to draw tigers and metal crap, now illustrating too. funny. awesome x

Saturnalien

I hear you on tigers and metal crap… my art is just a sideline (actually everything I do is just a sideline that somehow comes together to pay the bills) but I’ve come to the conclusion that I can’t create for other people under pressure (unless they want to wait a decade for their work). If I’m going to do art it has to be for me and in my own good time – and if someone wants to buy it, then good.

I thought I saw High Functioning Rake instead of Flake. oh my ancient eyes. These HFF sounds like some idiots I have dated.

I’m very Uranian (whimsical, ahead of my time, interested in metaphysics) but I’m not a flake. I’m dependable. I show up to work on time and work hard to achieve. I never have overdue library books or other borrowed materials. I don’t cheat in relationships.

Same same EEL. But I take ‘flakey’ as a compliment. With so much earth in my chart I need a bit of flakiness (Thanks Gem sun, Saturn in Pisces, Vertex and Lilith in Sag and of course Aries rising, which makes me impulsive and silly/childish at times.

Electric Eel Libran

*nods* I can’t tell if flake is supposed to be a compliment or not. In my regional area it denotes an untrustworthy and unreliable person with no necessary connotations of eccentricism. “Flaking out” means not showing up when expected to, not that you are having a bad feng shui day necessarily. Plus the way MM described it as i was saying above, there seems to be an air of narcissm, almost a not caring for the people around you like family, friends, and lovers. So I’m not sure how to define “flake” because I’m seeing so many interpretations of it… Read more »

When people call you a flake, they are being derogatory. But I take it as a compliment because I don’t like conservative stuck-in-a-rut types…

I get it. Why make a big stage show of dying? Why make others suffer? Born alone die alone.

Electric Eel Libran

I kinda got that impression myself. It seems according to what was described above in Mystic’s story is that the only difference between someone interested in eccentric approaches to life and a flake is that the flake has a narcissistic me-first streak. The flake may be humanitarian in a distant way but they don’t relate or take care of family, lovers, and friends.

No. Not a flake even though I have Sagg moon, Gem NN, Mars, Uranus/Pluto in Virgo. Saturn in the 2nd house puts the kabosh on any flakiness.

high-functioning flake here without the eccentricity (well visibly anyway (scorp sun). Very fixed chart but I agree the Triple Toro hates to commit and 12H Saturn opposing my Sun has caused problems of it’s own regarding punctuality and achievement. Somewhere the care factor falls down too….also HATE tax returns etc. You want me to fill in a payslip to be remunerated? That’s like asking me to work twice for the same money!

So Toros hate to commit? That explains the multi Saggo karmic something flake with Toro moon. Always dangling the carrot, wants me to wait around forever. Mars in Libra – passive aggressive all talk and no action. Hate him right now!

Yes I am a flake bur I love tax time.
In my senior years of high school I decided to have a vow of silence for an entire day. I figured no one listens to me and we all talk so much anyways, I also encouraged others to primal scream on hills at school. Butterflies distract me and the full moon recharges my soul battery.

But I loathe those all talk and no results folks. Please stop multitasking and just finish it.

Hi Scorpnot, I read something here about it being hard to pin Toros down to anything – like a dinner date or whatever – and I feel it….hate to commit to anything ahead of time in case I don’t feel like going out when it comes round basically. It always comes back tot he couch 😉 So that level of commitment, not the relationship kind, I’m OK with that 🙂

It just hurts my head to look at paperwork. Not hurts, it’s another sensation I can’t explain…like it makes my head feel like it’s stuffed with cotton wool or something.

scorpBot!

Scorpbot

“Scorpnot”. Lol. 😀

Yeh I remember that post but it doesn’t fit with them being reliable.

I know that head hurting feeling. There should be special term for that kind of pain. 🙂

brain fog?

she scorps me,
she scorps me not.

Scorpbot

😆 Brain fog doesn’t hurt though

calypso

it’s like painful brain ennui

Yeah that’s more like it!!

calypso

yeah I know what you mean about the reliability factor, and my first response was nah….but if I’m honest it’s true. I agree to stuff and usually follow through but I pine away inside for obligation-free time.

back to the paperwork – it’s like my brain wants to throw up. apologies for those with delicate sensibilities, lol

OK this is going to sound wierd but I actually like doing my tax. Usually because I am hoping for a tax refund. Otherwise I have unattended-to paperwork lurking in my life for aeons, squatting in psychic space that rightfully belongs to, I don’t know, something fun. Mind you I left my tax undone for about 8 years once because I didn’t know how to do this complex thing that I had to do. I asked, i mean bribed (with a home made chocolate cake) my financially savvy then-flatmate Virgo to help me crunch the numbers. bloody legend, that virgo.… Read more »

I usually need a friend to help me with it even though it is always incredibly straight forward and I am always super amazed at their skill in following instructions even though I’m sure they’re not difficult. I think I just need someone to hold my hand so that the brain doesn’t seize up with distaste midway through

I lodge my step Dad’s tax return. My payment is made in calamari.
Thank you for your website referral Calypso. 🙂

calypso

now that sounds like a deal, I usually pay in the graciousness of my company 😉

and you’re welcome!

Good quality calamari not the rubber in batter kind. Wasabi and soy sauce for dipping hot chips into…I love tax time…yum!

I fuqing love doing tax returns! I used to be like a free H&R Block service on two legs come tax time with all my family, friends and flatmates throwing their tax returns my way. (That was in NZ though, I fuqing hate the Australian tax system – it’s so user-unfriendly in comparison).

calypso

aha! so I can tell the tax office it’s not me, it’s you 🙂

Saturnalien

Yes, the ATO sucks! (The NZ system was sucky enough but the ATO make it even harder to locate info needed to get every fuqing cent you’re entitled to – especially so for self-employed and business tax matters.)

calypso

they probably sustain a whole industry of accountants that way

I knew there was people like this, i watched people fill the shit out, it wasnt done with any good will towards humanity. Wrap it up with a side of duty. It was -at least here another thing accomplished or to do. I see the same with mail. My old boss she looooooved her mail not because she got any personal stuff but because it gave her stuff to do.

All stuff my merc in pisces hates having stuff to do, likes being able to do anything…

Did i mention i have mercury in pisces… 🙂

Was just thinking of this today – cutting off peeps who hurt and who deceive – Virgo sun/fish rising here. “Understimate me at your peril” to echo the above

6th sense

Have never known a sign more potential dark n vindictive than virgo. Just sayin! Scorpio always gets this rap but its like an urban myth. Probly a myth strategically pimpd by virgos LOL

— no ways…have you ever mixed with scorpio moons? they, generally, are the pits. i am sorry
but my experience with them is they only give to get they will fuck your boyfriend no problems, behind your back, steal your possessions. Virgo are not nasty they just back away fast from fuckwits and yes you will get a tongue lashing but these days not i am doing buddhism!

Aqaleoscorpmn

The very fact a scorpio moon gathers anything to give to even get after the types of childhood we have had is a blessing. The only way ill fuck your boyfriend is if he comes at me and i dont know you, i mean who really owns anyone anyway..scorpmoins def dont seek there partners there sought after.. As far as stealing that must be one poor scorp moon usually people are very giving to scorp moons as the moon is rooted in other peoples money.. My mom was a virgo i have no idea how much her sun had to… Read more »

Another person who doesn’t understand Scorpio Moons: –No we don’t want to fuck your skanky boyfriend or whatever. We don’t steal what isn’t ours to begin with because we don’t like to share. We are territorial that way. –I don’t give to get. I’ve given plenty without any expectation of return. The way I see it, the universe will give back to me 3 fold or more and even if it doesn’t it’ll even out in the end. The guilt is yours and doesn’t lay with the giver. Don’t try to pathologize someone’s giving nature. I can’t speak for all… Read more »
