When The Moon Is In Virgo But…

Filed in Moon in Virgo

Pink Panther Ironing

The Moon is in Virgo & your mind may be a buzz with schemes, tradecraft & to-do lists.

BUT Mercury – the ruler of Virgo – is Retrograde AND Mars in Gemini (also ruled by the Retro-Mercury) is void – it can be infuriating.

It’s like you’re hyper-aware of what has to happen, shortfalls between where you are and where you wanna be BUT it’s hard to get traction.

Don’t go all neurotic on me now. Remember; self-guilting benders are NOT productive nor even efficient.

Control-freak the nutrition, gather info, have a cleanliness or stationery fetish that is actually pleasurable and get the hustle-tranquility balance calibrated just right for YOU.

The Grand Water Trine makes you PSYCHIC – not anyone’s gimp. Right?

Spot on as usual. Now will go play with my ton or two of stationary and quit focusing on the shortfall that was making me neurotic last night.

‘Hard to get traction’ on where you want to be, what you have to do to achieve it. Am chomping at the bit to return to work, yes work, it’s work and i love every aspect of it except answering the inquiries. Went into debt to nudge myself on,hoping that would be the impetus as am phobic about debt and regard money as a gambler does: i’m up or i’m down in the stake, money in is money won. Yes, in my case better to have luck than brains. Would like to drop the procrastination and either get back on… Read more »

Pegs! Sounds like a great night in πŸ™‚ Question: is the anti-institution thing a 12H feature generally? or combined with a certain sign, placement, etc?

Scorpbot

Calypso, 12th rules institutions, mental asylums, addicts etc – the delusional low Neptune house stuff. Was texting a Saggo ex a few days ago and he told me had had a dream that he was in jail and I was trying to help him get out. πŸ˜€ Couldn’t help but chuckle. It’s so symbolic and obvious!! He’s having his first Saturn Return AND Saturn on his Venus too (natal Scorp Venus). Poor thing. He’s a little sexually inhibited with his natal Saturn/Venus conjunction. Would have been more than happy to help him break out from his self-imposed prison but it’s… Read more »

12th house virgo
12th house virgo

12th house rules the collective unconsciousness – so that could be prisons, insane asylums, and that sort of (low) thing or high-spirituality haute Pisces stuff (universal oneness et al). 12th housers may be likely to be prisoners or work with prisoners (or so I’ve read). I’ve got 12th house Sun and Venus and my family wanted to have me institutionalized once. Anyway, none of that means that 12th housers are anti-institution, per se. They are either liberated by obliterating identity (merging with universal oneness) or imprisoned, in metaphor or fact.

12th house virgo
12th house virgo

Or “freed” by drugs and imprisoned for using them, lol! 12th house is a murky place like that.

calypso

liberation by obliteration, or libation πŸ˜‰ I have been drawn there myself at times….SAturn in 12th do that?

thanks 12hv, yeah, I still wonder why Pegs said that about being anti…is it like the anti-Cap house or something?

12th house virgo
12th house virgo

I don’t know what she meant. I am anti-institution but I attribute that to my first house stellium. As for Saturn in the 12th – Saturn usually adds a restriction. I don’t know exactly what to say about it. I do think house placements are important. Not everyone has something in the 12th house. Its a challenging area to work with as its ever shifting.

calypso
calypso

so do you think you’re quite Neptunian 12hv?

calypso
calypso

or Piscean, even?

12th house virgo
12th house virgo

Yes. I have 12th house planets, Jupiter in Pisces, and Neptune in Sag near my NN. So, I am fairly Neptunian. Funny, when I think of the 12th house, I think of the poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Her husband-to-be read her poems and broke her out of an institution. She’s a Pisces with Virgo-rising and Gem MH, so perhaps that’s what resonates with me. Anyway, for myself, I am trying to use my Neptunian powers to create and not just to escape.

tbh to me you seem more Piscean than Virgoan – it’s the depth of your thought. I love Pisceans πŸ™‚

12th house virgo

Thanks! I am very first-house oriented too. I notice Pisces swim away from conflict and I charge into it. LOL! I def have the “obsessive monkey mind” of a Virgo.

calypso
calypso

yeah I can see the Mercurial influence re: communication and you def have more force than a lot of Pisceans. Virgo/Pisces is an interesting combo isn’t it? One sort of wants to pin things down and one sort of wants to let it all unfold in all the fullness of it’s potential. That’s my impression anyway, apologies if I’m off with any of that….c

12th house virgo

I attribute force to Mars on my AC conjunct Pluto and Mercury. I’ve spent a lot of time trying to pin down the unfolding of infinity, lol. Really. And you’ve made a helpful and important comment. I think its the iching that keeps telling me “with such power in our words we must be careful of what we hear and what we say.” I try to be agenda-less. Like its a rule. Like having no agenda makes it more open to the unknown. For all I know, I don’t know. But, I can write. In ways, I was designed to… Read more »

hahaha! yes, Mers/Pluto/Merc sounds about right for you….and all that trying to define the infinite is really familiar to me as well, I guess it’s fundamentally Scorpy. I like your quote from the iChing. I have a Cap Mars square a Jupe/Merc conjunction so can be too harsh sometimes. Lucky Merc is in Libra and with a wide Venus Libra conjunction for a little bit of diplomacy πŸ˜‰ re: writing, I don’t know. I just don’t. I can write too, the Jupe conjuction makes it easy for me in a sense but I find it really hard to do, and… Read more »

Interesting. Forgot to mention the Saggo above has Saturn, Pluto and Venus in 12th house!! He admitted he had issues but didn’t want to talk about it.

Last time i met him for a drink he told me about his holiday in Europe and how he ended up in jail for 3 days 😯

Imprisoned for sure. Metaphorically and literally.

he admitted he had issues but didn’t want to talk about it? like, generally?

Ok. Will have to get straight to the point Saggo moon style. He’s not really an ex but someone I had a fling with that won’t go away – those Venus in Scorp types can hold a flame for years!! I only slept with him once (great kisser – his Mars in Venus) and he jumped off mid “horizontal tango” and said ” I can’t do this, it’s not me” So I ran through possible reasons – “you’re in love with someone? Christian? Gay? ??? He said NO to all of them but wouldn’t say why, except to say that… Read more »

Doing the Virgo thing with lists and checking out a new nutrition and eating thing. Called the GAPS diet (Gut and Psychology Syndrome). Anyone out there had any experience (good and not so good) about this? Please share

I recommend Intrepid tours. Great tour guides and a good mix of travellers. Did Bali & Lombok a few years ago, and having been a backpacker doing it solo, it was great to have accommodation and transport sorted! You could always start with a tour then do your own thing.

it is impossible to put on weight when you travel, if you just walk everywhere. it’s the best way to soak up the vibe on the streets and find cool little places without even trying. even midwinter Paris eating (almost) nothing but croissants, thick hot chocolate, espresso, red wine and oh alright intermittent salades parisiens (good salads in france), i stayed the same weight. Euro cities thankfully developed before the vile automobile so they are very pedestrian-friendly and determinedly remain so. Easy to walk around and maybe the odd cab or metro ride for fun or more distant sights. just… Read more »

pretty much the minute the moon went into virgo i managed, by just sitting, to give myself a big ol’ corneal abrasion. apparently the right eye in women is ruled by the moon, and it’s in my fourth house. or maybe it’s venus on my IC telling me to stay home? regardless, it’s been an interesting lesson in how i deal with pain (wimpily), limits to independence (i had to call my ex to come take care of the kids and drive me to the doc), and gratitude for my general good health and how i take it for granted.… Read more »

The hustle-tranquility balance is what I’m working on right now. Key to everything really isn’t it ?

A spiral notebook from Parcel/Durable Products from China with light brown paper. I ripped off the sticker price years ago which would have led me to the place I bought it in Vancouver .

on a strange vibe at the moment, kind of high-strung, it’s a bit like that feeling when you realise you’re breaking up with someone and you don’t want to, or they don’t love you. and you just want to go very crazy – drive recklessly, insanely loud music, scream, etc. It’s not out of control, but like the emotional amplitude is higher. Feeling more ‘me’ but / and also beyond the ‘me’ that I usually feel. does that make sense? I wrote a poem the other day about a time when I broke a guy’s heart (I was a self-hating… Read more »

wow, just looked up my progressed chart and 1st house (kataka) has everything in it. no wonder I feel like a highly strung Aries with all the 1st house energy. that saturn grounding from Scorpio 5th is probably much-needed..

He has a gf back home, but our connection, and our endless synchronicity is almost painful for me. We hum the same songs at the same time. Similar trains of thought.

He has commented on it, and I am guessing, as he’s hooked up, that he mentions the GF in moments when he needs to put a barrier up. But I FB’d him when I realised we’d checked into the same place, and the next morning over coffee, I was chatting to another of the guests, and when I said my name, she told me about how he’d raced around the hostel looking for me when he got the message. But as I said, I can’t weave dreams, I can only observe, and mourn, and move on. Oh the pathos
