Astrological Excuses To Get Out Of Christmas

There are multiple astrological excuses to get out of Christmas.

Firstly, point out that it is the season of Capricorn and the ancient festival of Saturnalia. Remind family and friends of your adherence to ancient traditions. Saturnalia was a debauched party to celebrate the harvest, and then that was it, they went back to work. Compulsory socializing or lock-down with extended family is Un-Capricorn.

It’s when many people feel more motivated and inspired to achieve than ever.

If you are in the Southern Hemisphere, say you flat-refuse to do Yule, a Winter festival, in the middle of Summer. Christmas is a stolen Pagan festival (one of many) that was initially Sun Worship. In mid-Winter, on the longest and coldest night of the year, people ate their supplies to celebrate having survived. In an environment where you could starve or freeze to death, the festivities were infused with gratitude.

Once You Get Out Of Christmas For The First Time, You May Never Want To Do It Again

And, a green bough from an evergreen tree was bought into the house to remind people of the inevitable return of Spring. So if you are in a Southern climate at the end of December, announce that you will be doing the seasonally appropriate Litha instead. Unless people want to deal with you naked, festooned with flowers and high on catnip on Christmas day, they can afford you some space to worship.

Cite your natal chart! If you have Saturn, the South Node or even Mars in the 11th House, compulsory socializing due to it being a calendar date, shuts down your superior functioning. It’s against your grain and blocks your natural momentum. If you’re a Fire sign, you prefer spontaneous gatherings, and if you’re a Mutable anything, you cannot be forced to commit to being anywhere in advance.

Warning: Once you get out of Christmas for the first time, you may never want to do it again.

Obligatory workplace Christmass-yness makes about as much sense as insisting everyone fast for Purim or celebrate Yom Kippur.

Or, just to be mean, Ramadan…a whole month of fasting from sun up to sun down. Heheh

Oh please!
MM just means using your skills placating people who arent worth the effort. This comment reminds me of kids who think that saying “stupid” or “idiot” are swearing and run and tell the teacher. Sometimes a spade needs to be acurately labelled. *As Dumb as dog shi* ” has resurfaced in my lexicon of late. Ooh aah! I guess that Father Christmas wont be coming to me then. Thank Dog! All those transfatty acid / made in Chinese sweat-shops stocking and artery stuffers will be deposited elsewhere. Yay!

I LOVE!!!!! Xmas.
Summer off, in Noosa.
A divine small family and gorgeous friends that adore food and loving having a good time.
I don’t do retail. I celebrate Local artesians wares.
Sometimes I’m loaded sometimes I’m completely broke.. It’s never any different. Xmas to me is the epitome of love/ life and celebration of same.

A merry loving Xmas to all!

Colleague has forced Secret Santa on us. Divine boss is raiding his cupboards so none of us have to buy anything. I told him to choose the worst so faces fall.

My favourite secret santa experiences:

(1) giving a partner in the prof services firm I worked at a pair of y-fronts in firm colour embroidered with company logo in silver tinsel.
(2) partner A at same prof services firm replacing secret santa gift for one of the other partners (partner B) with a photo in a love heart shaped frame of the partner C whom B publicly loathed.

Secret santa can be fun…

Distracted by pineapple.

I’ve decided that Jesus™ is a Scorpio. [[Probably with Mercury in Pisces, Mars in Capricorn, Gemini moon, and Aquarius rising.]] My Phoenix Consult was so wonderful and helped me clarify my vision and priorities in early Sept. I encourage anyone interested to snap one up while they’re available! Wanted to get one for my sister but my next big payday (contract, urgh) comes through Dec. 27th. Feel like a jerk/grinch and buying many presents after xmas but before new year’s…but I’m stuck. Another reason I gotta leave the random-gig hustle, it’s just too much unpredictability stress for a hyper-fixed person… Read more »

Maybe a passive-aggressive scorpio – didn’t you know that it’s been hypothesised that his last words weren’t “Forgive them Lord they know not what they do” but rather “It’s not my fault, I told them so.”

No such thing as a passive-aggressive Scorpio…
Surely!!! They couldn’t be arsed!

Why resort to pass-agg behaviour when short, sharp and to the point works… blunt even.. maybe that’s my Saggo moon talkin’ 🙂
