I realised that I trust myself & I ain’t gonna listen to anyone, especially my family of origin, but just have FAITH. This has been the Active Faith Eclipse for me. You know, not the I-hope-I’ll-rescued kind of faith, the faith that you know you are going to be alright because you have been helped before, and if it doesn’t come it is time to let go kind of faith. Thank you for the observations about conquering yourself MM, it was timely reading as I went about observing what I was reacting to. The daily email is so brilliant, I… Read more »

Before the Eclipse I got upset and kicked the house.
Then I calmed down and took the kids swimming.

Exactly on the Eclipse a little boy did a shit in the pool and everyone got out. Lol!!

Not sure what that means.. time to not to swim in shit?

Good stuff Andy. I’ve been too tired to reply to every post that has struck a chord with me over the past two days, but now that crappy void Taurus Moon shizz is over, I have to say that me personally having some idea of what you’re dealing with, and knwoing that what you’re doing about it really works, I really wanted to bitch-slap your sister after reading your post. x

Thank you beautiful Alien Kitten of Saturn!
Sigh, it’s kind of you to respond, you are lovely energy.

It’s is hard to create confidence after intense criticism all my childhood.
My inner child gets easily rocked by sis’s comments & anything around my actual child, wow it’s like knocking a bruise.
Double whammy there!

I feel I am quite limited compared to some here.. you know partly circumstance with kids, partly because I so obsessive…or plutonic, in my interests. Thanks for the kind support. xx.

Know how you feel Andy! My younger Leo sister pushes my buttons like nobody else!
We are like chalk and cheese and have crazy screaming matches. She loves the drama of it all but I can’t stand conflict. Leaves me so rattled!!

When we were in our teens she said to me “if you weren’t my sister I’d hate your guts!” 😆 Family eh! Don’t even get me started on my hyper-critical Virgo dad. 🙄

I wanted to say something empathetic like that, but I daren’t mention my little sister on this blog ever again.

Vague memory surfacing.. what happened last time..? Thanks Scorpbot, as a Leo, I can’t help wishing your sis wasn’t more empathic to your Scorpioness ways…

A quiet rant about my little sister turned into circus sideshow of amateur psychological analysis, projections, assumptions and unsolicited advice based on all of the above… people claiming to help when all they are doing is rubbing salt in the wound. Good times! 😐

Oh I am sorry.
Boxing neatly in psycho babble seems a way of attempting controlling the chthonic forces of emotion that rise up from the depths of our relationships with …everyone but also very much our family and esp. sisters! Which, is to say, it doesn’t always work..

calypso scorp

here’s another parallel Scorpbot. my little Leo sis and I are like allergic to each other. Rough childhood episode unresolved on her end.

Andy might relate….makes everything to do with our own children highly sensitive!

We do try though.

Ha! You have a little Leo sister too.

“Allergic” that’s a good term for the dynamic 🙂

Well thanks Calypso Scorp, that’s a nice vote of confidence. Perhaps I am feeling a little overwhelmed lately.

Went walking at noon the other day (Tuesday, if I recall, and saw three lizards..One stopped to bask in the Sun and so I walked over (not terribly close of course so as to not horn in… 🙂 ), but the big message was to detach…

“Why don’t you dream anymore…what’s in the way?” (The Cars, You are the Girl)

I’ve always…with Pisces MC and Neptune in 5th trine, been a dreamer but you know, sometimes life is harsh…But once we heal from things we can then still get on to our dreams, no?

I sat down @ my desk this a.m. to pay bills & suddenly felt compelled to list my life insurance policy #s & amounts clearly on a piece of paper; stuck said list conspicuously in my home office, where a survivor can find it. Well, how shitty would it be to die & that money goes to waste b/c no one had the info? And/or, your family’s stuck with med/funeral bills along with the grief of your death? Just saying, people. Get on top of your biz– *all* of it.

true. my mum has told us (offspring) which solicitor her will , insurance details etc is with. I plan to write down all my passwords to everything (bank, email etc) and leave that in my documents. also the important things – health insurance, superannuation, etc

This week, despite seeing a solicitor about dissolving my marriage and talking to the bank about taking over the mortgage, I feel amazingly good, at peace and centred. I feel like I am in suxh a good place. I expected it to be a tough week but nope. Loving it.

I noticed a pattern in my chart I hadn’t before. Vesta-Circe in 2nd Scorpio, Juno-Jupiter-Ceres in 6th Pisces, and Saturn in Cancer 10th make a big, blue triangle in my chart. What to do with all that water energy? Not sure, but Pallas Athena in Capricorn wants to dig deep. So, I just put the intention out there – may the Universe align me with the work that suits my talents, whatever that may be. I committed to watching for signs. We’ll see.

WOW Mystic.. I had posted yesterday or the day before on FB that I was climbing a mountain at work. I felt that way this week. Although very challenging what I realized is that I cannot coward to authority. I am not saying that I “fight” authority but stand true to my experience, knowledge and morals as a professional and let it show. I have been afraid to be who I want to be at work because of my new boss (still trying to get to know each other) and stepping forward to show everyone what I know. I am… Read more »

I have a new look thanks to my hairdresser and tomorrow I’m going to art classes, to prepare me for the next phase of my life (due when my children finish school…but I figure I need to become expert at what I want to do in the future). Feeling so good after three+ years of cr*p. Thank you Saturn.

I have the Sun, Moon and Mercury all conjunct my natal Jupiter (in Taurus) in the 8th house at the moment, trine my Asc. in Virgo 12th house. And opposite Uranus in Scorpio in 2nd house. Anyone has any idea what that could mean? As I understand it, 8th hous rules sex, death, regeneration and other people’s money. Good time to win the lotto? 🙂 I feel so RESTLESS and dreamt of quitting my job in digital comms two nights ago – it seemed very real. And a relief.

I’ve got all these on my MC, not sure exactly what it means. But it sure does feel itchy. Maddening itch sometimes, other times I’m reviewing & culling. Everything is under review from habits, the past, relationships, family, food, garden lol, it just doesn’t stop. So, I’ve been meditating more to clear the clutter of my mind just for the break & to stop from moments of being overwhelmed.

I cant recognise any particular epiphany… Though I have been reflecting on how my life currently appears to be unfolding to help me achieve my goals despite it looking like I had manifested poorly and forgotbto include one of the most important things – loving supportive rellationships… But I am having a Saturn transit…. I just want to play the sport I play more and more… I can feel myself getting fit and it feels great!

Today’s eclipse marked a significant life milestone for me. For 12 years I had been languishing… the last 5 years a slow improvement… the last 2 a bigger improvement…. …and the last two months was a quantum leap in personal growth. Really J-curving it, up out of the gutter and into the stratosphere. Well today I landed quite a plum job. To me, this is the very symboliof the phoenix FINALLY rising from those ashes 12 years ago when everything when to s%$#. On the day of the eclipse, my financial security is finally…secure…after 12 years of struggle. A very… Read more »

I made a list of intentions and everything I really wanted seemed to exist in the realm of the physical (more sex, better food, more regular meals, consistent exercise, consolidate my cash flows, clean the house more often, etc) and about bringing all this stuff into my everyday life. And not making excuses! I’m quite excited in a non-dramatic way.

I have had a month from hell which has culminated into some of the biggest AHA moments of my life. It started with a car accident, resulting in Chiropractic care, revealing deep seated behavioural patterns, culminating in fear of a terminal illness to getting the all clear from a Neurologist today. The underlying factor was anxiety which I’ve been living with since i was 12 and erupted to the surface over a period of gentle Chiro adjustments linking a past event to the present having me believe i was dying. It has been so powerfully consuming and terrifying that life… Read more »

This *amazing* TED Talk on grit just came out today- what separates the high achievers from the low achievers: http://www.ted.com/talks/angela_lee_duckworth_the_key_to_success_grit.html

It’s short too, about six minutes long, so if you don’t have much time, perfect to squeeze in from a break from doing crunches while writing your book.

i’ll try to fit it in between feeling sorry for myself for crunching a customer’s car with my own, and handing in what I know was an utterly half-baked discussion paper in class. i think i might call today a ‘low achievement day’… the only way is up! right? ugh

Getting more organized at work, figuring out how to get more organized at home… Figuring out how to make my goals attainable (it feels amazing knowing they actually ARE attainable)… Also, realized I actually HAVE been holding out for someone specific. Saw a recent photo of him, goofing off with other friends and looking really happy, and I felt… nothing, other than glad he was having a good time. I’m free, I’m falling in love with myself, and it’s all going pretty well right now. <3

a lot of this current astro has a metallic resonance for me, esp silver. been wearing this heavy chain and byzantine Gothic cross (was born underhe constellation crux). Didn’t make the connection until now that moon conjunct Chiron a couple days ago and now eclipse conjunct Venus. the past trials are forged anew with as you say brilliantly, the resolve becomes motion, a stainless steel owl on takeoff.

All this Toroness gives me indigestion.
It’s like Kryponite to me.

Same here. Neptune in Cap and that’s it for earth. Nothing in second house either.

Whenever all the planets start to pile into Taurus, I feel awful, bloated, allergies and eczema, and I literally gain weight once the northern half gets warmer (alternatively I drop those 5 pounds without any effort once it’s Scorp Season, but even so, ugh). Even moon in Taurus is like a second PMS, and I get so emotional and crappy.

Maybe it’s because all that stuff is squaring/opposing all the Leo/Scorp/Aqua stuff I have?

funny i just wrote down, it is not where you been its where you going. sun, moon, mercury, mars etc conjunct my north node. i don’t seem to be going anywhere fast, but that is taros for you. i think its a good time to go back and
study and improve oneself. i have too long been acting from the unconscious . why ask for abuse why not just perfect oneself.
