Holy fuqstix every time i post about some deep fam tragi-drama stuff, and hit post comment, the screen flips up to Van Damme’s Van Dancing before flicking back to the post.

It’s really hilarious juxtapositioning! It restores my mind 🙂

Except for Audrey Hepburn of course.
Disturbing? It’s laugh out loud fun.

Mercury retro hassle with telecom company sorted, after a time wasting stressful total of 3 hours, with an apology. It was for a transfer of email account i never had from a place i lived in 10 years ago. Desperadoes
trying to squeeze what they can from peeps who don’t check their bills.

Jean Claude van damme … A bit figjam too. There’s a woman dancing next to him and does he try to put the moves on her? Nope. He’s all up in his own awesome.
Makes me giggle. Like when you catch out kids secretly dancing in their rooms

I’ve only just worked out that my brain actually stops working during mercury retro. The upside is that I have the opportunity to Non-Think and Un-Think.I hear-by declare that I will spend all future mercury retros neither thinking nor working.

Fuq it.
That’s what I got.
I can’t always be nice. I won’t always be liked. And the submissive giggle self write off as just a silly girl what would I know is old. I’m old. Too old to play stupid.
Boundaries. I found boundaries.
And if the never ending story narcissistic ex is waiting for me to apologize for his arseyness which he blames on me then he’ll be waiting till hell freezes over because I no longer care if people don’t like me.
So that’s what I learnt. Fuq it.

I don’t even know what I’ve learnt. But it sure has been powerful stuff, augmented by OPP, because i am from a family where mental issues are rife. And i just had to return to family, didn’t i? *sigh* Such intricate threads bind us. I am supported so well by them and also trampled and bruised by the act-outs of personality disorders. At least i have cried and kept going, instead of raged and run away. DO i still need to be understood by those who are incapable of it? Developed crush in that time as well, which for various… Read more »

Wish I didn’t relate to this post quite as much as I do. I realised that the feelings I have around the family are ones of trying to teach them the correct way to behave – not to me, I am just the testing ground – but towards the rest of the world. Because they hurt so many others around them unaware that their words have any impact… personality disorders is another way of saying it. Everyone asks me why I seek their understanding, but I don’t think it’s that simple. So yeah, less about them understanding me as learning… Read more »

Oh! My question for you lovely Mille, was if you really do seek their understanding!? Or is it something else… Xx.

Wow, what a question. First response, no, their ACCEPTANCE. They argue, resist, deny, criticise…all the things that push away, even on a level that is absolutely superficial and seemingly neutral. Like, i kid you not, even the weather. Constant correction or questioning why you are doing something, or how. My Sagginess has always tended to try to respond, reasoning that frankness will lead to clarity. But they don’t want to understand. Only to…possibly control. One gets suspicious all the time, ascribing the most awful motivations to me or others. Another can do that too, but more often just criticises and… Read more »

Have you heard of Dorothy Rowe? I really like her books. Read, “My Dearest Enemy, My Dangerous Friend”. It’s about the little studied topic of sibling relationships through the lens of her own issues with her sister. It put some stuff into perspective for me. I really do hear the dynamic you are describing so clearly as I have felt/feel as you do. I would say that the more I have let go of needing them to be conscious, aware, caring individuals, the more they have looked within. But not enough to be able to have many of those great… Read more »

Thanks, lovely. I appreciate that, and will drink in the words! I have lovely siblings, too, just one hard case. The other is mother. Blood father was killer, but not in my life now. Mother…the hardest one. For us women? Like Pegasus said, your lioness is magnificent. I feel you through your posts, which i have read over years, and cannot understand the impact such sibling treatment might have on the warmth of Leo. I saw a lovely Lioness last week, and like you, she is full of nourishing. I really appreciate your words/connection Andromeda. Today is a little tough… Read more »

Funny, your astro twin is being forced to face family now too. I feel it was fated for him to have to spend some time with them. Must be in the astro. Do you think people with hard Pluto aspects always have mental illness in the family? I did. He did too. But then again, seems like everyone is mentally ill these days. People say and do the oddest things. I don’t try to understand them any longer, any of them.

Um, yes, i literally, physically survived one in my childhood and teenage years. Apparently very lucky, too. Pluto opposite Sun. Have3 also experienced friends fall apart. Yes, I am beginning to loosen that Sagittarian enquiry of mind about it all: i don’t need to understand, as that just keeps me too close. It isn’t b&w as you well know. The earliest one was, so I walked away, cut ties as a teen. Can’t do that now without affectin other blood ties. Can’t leave them to it, either. Forgiveness is the hardest thing i have done in my life, or rather… Read more »

Astro is amazing. He was institutionalized as a teen, incarcerated as an adult. Everyone who knew him thought he was crazy. He really plays up his Leo/8th South node. Anyway, I thought I would give him a try on my own terms and let him show me what he is. Unfortunately, he is paranoid, which is really not something a paranoid person wants to hear. And I don’t know how deep that goes, being as he’s got so much power funneling round in his chart, but it really reminded me of my Dad. And I realized I don’t have to… Read more »

No, I have enough Earth. It keeps me out of trouble, and from floating off, though in a hard way, with the hard planets. I have Mars in Capricorn, Saturn in Taurus, Lilith and Pluto in Virgo. I am certainly not a Peter Pan! But i see how Pisceanness, 5th house-ness and 12th houseness, plus Sag-ness could do it! To clarify, i survived the mental illness and violence of others. But it always makes me check myself, and i have worked closely with counsellors over long periods of time to be sure i do not go into that territory. (These… Read more »

Yeah, I thought you were talking about suffering others. The Pisces was institutionalized after a 3 day acid trip. Checked himself in. Loads of Mars issues. Pluto-Sun opposition really plays out in angry-Dad drama. Whatever. That’s his karma. Pluto is no joke.

Ouch! My friends didn’t stop me from much but every group of buddies i had said no no no acid for you! I have done many things but stayed away from trips. Must come back! Oh he has Mars aspects, too? With Pluto, it’s true, heavy heavy energy riding on even the tiniest of your actions. Even last night i felt bad i posted about my family on here. But i hope it is clear i’m suffering not unloving. Trying to separate behaviours not blaming. I use anger to break martyrdom. I then have to temper the rage because you… Read more »

Oh Mystic it was a palpable shift yesterday. I was counting down to 17:00! I reckon I’ve sloughed off this crazy notion that I’m some kind of laughing stock/subject of pity and am uber sensitive to whiny moaning people now and thus keep a wide berth. Saturn really did help me get my affairs in order and dare I say I’m more comfortable telling it like it is and not giving a damn if people think I’m a bitch. Hallelujah! Time to bust a move with Jean Claude!

That’s a good one. Respecting the power of sleep is difficult. As an epileptic who has never seen herself fit, it’s hard to appreciate the impact of fitting as well. The unconscious is our power base yet we aren’t present enough to really get that our health, sanity and confidence are found in the quiet of the night.

IN 2013 I broke my i phone 4, of course during mercury retrograde. For 8 months I spent time arguing with the Phone company and their insurance people to get the phone fixed and returned Eventually they did it, and then they somehow lost the phone in transit. After 8 months the said phone company eventually admitted it was their mess up so gave me a new IPHONE 5. In the middle of this mercury retrograde, i.e. FEB 2014, the phone company store rang insisting I come and pick up the IPHONE 4 which they had replaced with a new… Read more »

Is that what that was? Merc rx, when was it. All I know was – I can’t be anyone’s audience anymore. I don’t have the time or inclination. I was subjected to people’s personal stories, drama and gossip at work. I shut off. They wonder what’s happened to me. I told them, when I’m at work, I work. When I want to relax, I go home and watch TV (not listen to people’s gossip, drama, complaints, and this and that). I have so much work at work that actually, at work, all I wanna do is work, nothing else. I… Read more »

This is/has been me as I’m in a similar field and have been traversing similar annoyances lately but beyond the Mercury rets things. I have just had some time off so that I didn’t just blow the whole thing and am well aware that staff are a bit surprised at my candid views and that has left me on the outter. I think this recent retro has left me less concerned about what others think. I also think it’s encouraged a rethink on what I want. I certainly relate to not wanting any people around when the day is done.… Read more »

Good for you! You should know your worth too. Worth of yourself and your time! Its so hard when you are introverted to realize others can see you. Maybe that’s my 12th house sun, lol. But I am glad I got fired from my last job. I was a blessing. Because the emotional interactions with colleagues made no sense and made me sick and it was expected, probably the most important part of the job. You have to know what borders keep your life healthy for you. And now that you do, don’t let back for anyone. Heal yourself first.

Thank you, Maria. I get easily overstimulated by people and I have to withdraw from everything to take care of myself. I have a lot of clients. I can say accurately that I am more busy than my coworkers. But I’m also a single mom and don’t have a lot of people at home to take care of.

*grinning* it was by far the most intense mercury retrograde I am aware of ever experiencing. Lots of things happened that could be called awful, but I think I wouldn’t have made such huge leaps in growth had I not experienced all of it when I did. So, while it felt really horrible at times, I’d say my overall experience was awesome, and I’m so effing glad it’s over. Today I feel slightly dazed from it all.

I’m a jerk, my friends are jerks, people are complicated, relationships are hard work, love doesn’t actually have a finite period, dreams are messages that should really be examined.

Love that gif.

I realized over this Mercury Retro that the huge process of change I’ve been going through since November 2012 is a marathon not a sprint. And that I should be using Saturn on my Sun-Neptune until this November to build the life I want for myself, rather than dreading the transit and waiting for it to pass. That I have an opportunity to deepen my intuition during this time and build up the Qi that so often I’ve frittered away in the past.

With my life being on the RUN since August 2013 I had to realize that I can’t do everything. It was a great time starting with acting classes and then getting into running but the acting piece has become a struggle vs an enjoyment. Why? Because I don’t have the availability to go to auditions like most of my acting friends. I work fulltime while others don’t. I kept on pushing myself, paying for classes but “if” I was chose to audition it would mean taking a day off from work. The acting was just making me happy. SO.. I… Read more »

You, the virgo, gotten cold on your pisces? I’ve seen virgo get cold pretty quickly. I don’t know if virgo is capable of firey red hot spontaneous passion like me, an aries. I have a pisces, 29 years as friends. I guess in looking at the progress charts, we can see how our energies in the realms of passion, logic and emotion have grown or subsided.

Actually.. no.. I haven’t gotten cold. Just realizing that our beginning has not been the best. He seems interested like he was a month ago but he is taking his sweet time. Contacts me randomly.. which is fine and flirts a little. Mixed signals I can say. I want him to take the lead. So, I am letting him to see what happens. But then I reach out to him and I don’t hear from him and I am like “oh crap”… why can’t you just let it go. It is SO hard.

when you put it down like that it sounds like he pushed you until he got what he wanted and then lost interest Ellie. it might not hurt to bring a little bit of cynical/analytical to the table with this one, or at least be sure you know what YOU want and stand your ground a bit VE xx
