Perma Zapped

Flow My Tears The Policeman Said

“I have a secret love of chaos. There should be more of it. Do not believe–and I am dead serious when I say this– do not assume that order and stability are always good, in a society or in a universe. The old, the ossified, must always give way to new life and the birth of new things.”

 

Philip K Dick – the genius author of Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep a.k.a. Blade Runner – multiple conjunct Sagittarius (Sun, Mercury, Lilith, Saturn), Moon in Aquarius (from the future) and (get this) Uranus Rising in Aries.  Squaring his Capricorn Midheaven. Dude was permanently living in the Zap Zone.

We’re a week off the next blast of Uranus square Pluto (the rare & epochal challenge between the two major Change Planets – cue geopolitical and personal morphing). Maybe Philip K Dick would be be some good prep reading?  It’s amazing how he was born in the 1920s but his work seems always so contempo.  Thoughts?

He managed to write amazing sci-fi when it was just considered pulp-trash. He took a butt-load of drugs, but managed to break through his addiction and live and write (even better stuff) in recovery. He was inspi-frakkin-rational. Love that he has the same expression as the kitty in the picture.

I noticed the zap zone creeping in this monday really, more sirens More tired neighbors, more people chanting louder, i am not a slave I am not a slave, damn tinfiolers. A derogatory term for usually reserved for uranians being first to find out. Im mean its the planet of freedom obviously uranians will be able to find out first if hes really free, if his bothers are really free, and he get hated for it by Aries because he wasnt first Virgo because they love to just work period Saggitarians because there busy at the beach Libras because threre… Read more »

That PKD looks like he mighta been pretty darn hunk a lish..

And the kitty…Pisces Doc and his Pisces wife kitty “Snagglepuss” has lukemia…So sad…she is nursing him along the way as best she can make him comfortable…She is not ready to put kitty down…They have had him 17 yrs…No wonder Doc has not gotten oil and cream/trash bags ordered on time as he is pre-occupied and asked him last week if he is getting enough sleep. He looked like hell and for 47 he looks much younger and in good shape overall…

My very Uranian husband loves Philip K. Dick.

On another note, the astro air kind of hit me when I woke this morning and I feel like someone close to me has died (no one will answer their phones so I can verify).

Blade Runner is a masterpiece! Top favorite film of all time.
All great writers are mad, of course! They’d be boring otherwise.

P.K. Dick reminds me of a dear friend who always urged me to read him. He is Moon/Sun Aqua with a dense Stellium of nearly everything in Pisces in the 12th.
Opposed by Pluto conj Uranus (1deg) in Virgo.

Brilliant guy, schizophrenic episodes notwithstanding. I really miss him.
His father died & left him a house which he doesn’t leave. The walls are papered with Aluminium.

Actually I love when PKD’s books get made into movies, I don’t much like his writing as much as his concepts. Minority Report & of course Blade Runner are great.

I perceive ‘chaos’ allegorically: Like moving around via lilypads, not a canoe or bridge. Bridge relies on foundations, and it starts and finishes somewhere. it’s been built by someone. Canoe, too much equipment. Lilypads, unstable, can’t stay on one forever, its up to you to hop around and figure out the pond,etc.

As a fellow Sun-Lilith-Merc in Saggo and Aqua Moon, I have to admit that this gave me a joyful grin and resonant memory of when I used to talk about the importance of having Chaos over for tea and sausages every once in a while…keeping up relations, catching up on news, remembering to make little offerings, and such.

Hi HDQ, I just think Philip K Dick looks like Breivik.
I just mentioned Manson from the point of Madness = Attraction. The insanity of attraction. I’d like to stress that I haven’t made a comparison between the creative work of PKD and the hideous actions of Breivik and Manson.

I recognize that cover of The Man in the High Castle, someone gave me that paperback edition, it was the first PKD book I ever read. That was about 3 months before he died. Now I think I’ve read almost everything he ever published, except the piles of new biographical material which is just too much to deal with. I even have a few rare Ace first editions, cheap pulp paperbacks that would crumble if I ever tried to read them. One of the basic concepts PKD uses in several novels is what if there really is an omnipotent god,… Read more »

I just saw a very zap zone appropriate flick, called Upstream Color via some semi-legit internet stream. The shooting and visuals were dream mode stunning with a great story. Great piece of sci-fi/drama/mind fuqer and I haven’t been able to get it unstuck from my mind. Felt every bit of it, and thought what a great pre-req for this uranus pluto.

😯 I think this really resonates with me. I had a lot of chaos early in my life after losing my parents when I was a child and I think because of that I have always sensed chaos in some ways ever since. I don’t think it is a bad thing nor should it necessarily be linked to something negative because what I have experienced and noticed about chaos is that something often good comes of it. Just think of social movements and how uprising and the struggle to be heard is necessary because stability, in those cases, meant silence… Read more »

I’m starting to think this Zap Zone thing is over rated. I mean, what are we trying to predict here? Change? The world is always changing. I saw two white tailed deer this morning. They crept into the neighborhood which caused my little black dog and big black cat to stop their morning walk and sit on the sidewalk in awe. Then, walking over the bridge on the way to catch a train, two mallards, both with green heads, swan under me. Omens, pairs. What great love could be waiting for me that isn’t already here now?

What a beautiful morning. Something is definitely in your world, or coming to your world. Perhaps it is just an awakening of something? Gorgeous.
Love your bit there about words are viruses, and sitting silently tells the story. And the value of senses over thoughts.
That’s a great opening to a story that you never intended to tell. One that just falls out of you.

Thanks, I do hope I can some day write it down but it seems a paradox and I want to stay true to the facts. When words and numbers were first invented they were the same things. The act of recording thoughts didn’t split the two into math and literature. Political savvy did that. Both are methods of accounting. In that way, debt is a thought process. Which is very philosophical, only it isn’t. Its true history. There were people, artisan sailors who didn’t bother to name themselves or their nation, who actively resisted written language because it disrupted fair… Read more »

Hey I get this. This is your Pluto square mercury, yes? Neptune is squaring mine and last night I took a Myers-Briggs and found I’ve gone from an INTP to an INFP. Strange world of being, not analyzing. Feels real and not disconnected on some fundamental level. Also a helluva lot harder than being a mercury-ruled sociopath. Everything is personal. Synchronicities everywhere. Bizarre yet so right…

Yup, the Zap Zone is happening right on my Mercury, 11 Libra being squared by Pluto, opposed by Uranus. Also, I have a Neptune square Venus in my natal chart, so when that transit happens things feel more clear to me. I just don’t feel like I need anything right now. Not the money or the guy or anything. I just want to enjoy my daughter. Tonight, she sucked on her big toe, used her little toes to pick her nose while humming an ode she had been singing about her fink (fantastic stink). She’s such an Aries. Its silly,… Read more »

Was reading about Orwell last night (ipad for mummys day).. he was a fan of Jack London.

Haven’t really slept since. As I type, sick child is crying inconsolably – tired and sick. Have vaporiser going, classical playing and remedies up the Kazoo. I wish he’d dream of android sheep.

Geo-political morphing? The desire to travel is intense yet the spontineity is lacking due to deep root growing. The old what you fear comes at you i.e.:
roots.
The Dhaka disaster for example. Visited there twice and had very moving
(perhaps that is not the most appropriate word) experiences, most memorable of many places that perhaps innoculated me due to the bugs ‘n bacteria in the food, giving me a caste iron stomach.

Apparently he lost a twin sister soon after birth: could have had a big impact, as might a Uranian ascendant. Then again, there’s Sun, Mercury, Saturn, Lilith, Psyche, all conjunct in Sagg (5 degree orb) and lying between the Great Attractor (huge tractor beam)and the Galatic Centre. Not to mention Mars, Neptune, Pluto opp Cap MC, Jupiter, Circe and Chiron retrograde. Now, all that has to be cosmically heavy, no?

I’m a Virgo and an anarchist. The world could do with a bit – maybe a lot – more destruction to put things in proper order around here. The difference between creation and destruction is just a word game anyway.

Pi

when a Virgo sees that the system is rotten / not functioning as well as Virgo knows it could, they become agents of disruption and destruction until it’s working the RIGHT way. it seems to me. that, or they fester anxiously and lose sleep because they are unable to change it, and it chafes on an existential level. x
