Pacing It

Filed in Horoscopes

Tim Walker

Hands up who’s had it?

But God we can’t conk out yet. That will be in May, after the Solar Eclipse in Taurus. We’ve still got the Zap Zone, Grand Cardinal Cross & Mars-amped Full Moon Eclipse in Libra to go yet.

The Daily Horoscopes for Monday are up – super to the point and hopefully helpful. Nearly all the Muggles i know are going mental with this but not US – we are going to thrive through it and work off the change vibe to pull off transformations that would usually feel beyond us.

Also, I am taking the Zeitgeist Super Scopes for 2014 off the Shop page as it’s (don’t freak) a quarter of the way through the year already but i’m going to be including them with the Daily Mystic for Monday so subscribers will each get a copy. If you have them already, feel free to forward to a friend.

And I am about to add an update to the Could A Leo Policeman Trigger The Dormant Love Zombie Virus? post. Stand by.

Finally, i tried to re-post this radness from Russell Brand but it wasn’t happening so i put it on my Tumblr – take a look. He’s got Lilith square his Sun Neptune opposition so my feeling is that he has flamboyantly conquered (with Mars-Jupiter in Aries there is no such thing as a silent struggle lol) his lower Neptune/addictive schizz and is now moving to work with his Lilith.

And remember: Pace Yourself Through April…

Frankly, I am praying.

Full moon eclipse farewell work dinner – I’m one of the ones getting farewelled. This is a full moon eclipse conjunct MY moon, AND mars directly over natal pluto … I’m also highly suspicious of the the north node conjunct natal moon as well.

And then just for further kicks, all this is opposite my Aries personal planets. May Uranus keep zappy, not sappy.

Sobriety will be critical.

The first three months of this year were absolute hell and I was terrified of what April would bring after all Mystic’s warnings. But this is where things have turned right around. It’s like I’ve hit the sweet spot. Can the grand cross work like that too?

DAYMN, my thoughts exactly Mystic, the Muggles are losing it, but I am rocking transformations I never believe possible!!

My MC is at 13 Aries so it’s been really intense. Career has been my main focus. I cannot even pretend to care about relationships, etc. There’s a month left in the semester and my profs seem to be doubling the work load. Luckily I seem to be handling it okay and pacing myself. Anxiety running high though. I’m so glad to be back to doing yoga. I am lazy so I don’t want to make exercise a big production. I just keep on my yoga pants, pull out my mat and do quick 10, 15-minute yoga vids on youtube… Read more »

I am off to buy some bar oil for my chain saw. I’m ripping out weeds and rebuilding a stone wall. It feels good to do something physical that also has a point to it – you know, not just sit ups or whatever. I felt like an animal coming out of hibernation. I woke up lots of bugs yesterday ripping out the wall. Spiders, ants, bees…saw them all. Plus, I got sunburn on my neck. Feels so good! I think another week to go before I check in on my vitamin d levels with the dr again.

I was so prepared but April has already been one long headfuq, starting to feel like a muggle, really didn’t think it could be THIS exhausting and complicated. Honestly feel like I’m about to drop into a spiral of anxiety from whence I may never return and things are literally changing from one hour to the next, feels like being caught in quicksand. Aries ASC, all my angles are getting hit, 13′ Venus in Libra, Pluto, Pluto square Venus, Uranus opp Venus, Saturn transiting my 8th house, highly Plutonic men with heavy duty Pluto synastry popping up out of every… Read more »

Yeah … I’ve chosen to handle it by simplifying and focusing on the core stuff. Anything extra curricular has been (or will be dumped). After a brief dip of the toe into other waters, I found that was where the headfuqery seemed to want to assert itself … well makes sense seeing as Mars is retro in my 5th house. Core stuff? Stressful yeah. Demanding yeah. But not out of control or weird. Well aside from the Virgo housemate who is as irritating as always …

Yup. I cancelled date with Pisces.

I found the guys on the hunt out there on dating sites are hunting for someone for a reason – out of some neediness. And I guess that *can* be OK, but usually its an indicator they’ve got some blind spots going on in their self-awareness. Can get really creepy too when they start projecting all that on to you.

My dating plan is to be doing what I love and meet someone that way. I realize how much work I have to do to be ready for that even. I’m emotionally drained plus being a 12th house virgo with a Pluto in the 4th transit, its easy to stay at home getting shit done. Its hard to remember to just get out and have fun and self motivate.

This crackpot Virgo was your typical sociopathic headfuqer. Thought he was “all that” … somehow special, terminally unique and above all riff raff of humanity. Said some seriously questionable things – even I was shocked and I thought I’d heard everything. Clearly a personality disorder of some form. Let’s face it … I basically just don’t actually like men anymore I think! lol

I want to put a male perspective to what you females are saying. I’ve gone on a dating site and it is dispiritng for sure. First of all you send an inquiry.

Ah, stealth mode yes. I almost got into an argument with a sadge – someone I migght be interested in – who was practically interviewing me about relationships the other night. Ok fine, I’ll talk about anything, but I STILL can’t shake the feeling that he will try to squeeze me into some mould that seems right for him. I can just smell this whiff of smug complacency, or an abiding preference for conventional behaviour that freaks me the fuq out. It could be his measured way of communicating that makes me think this. But also as a sadge he… Read more »

Have not met a huge amount of Sagg guys but the ones I *almost* dated I somehow managed to offend. How the hell does one offend a bloody Sagittarian???? They are so wussy and oversensitive, immature and boring! Always want to crap on about their last dreary jaunt to outer Mongolia on a raft made of handwoven seagrass or some shite like that, never about anything real. Meh. Love Sagg women though and have plenty in my acquaintance.

Have been toying with the idea of doing the full tilt yoga thing lately – trying to stay in the higher vibe – honing in on my spiritual pursuits of clean living rather than late nights loud music and vodka! but the schizz got to me last night – now nursing a freaking awful hangover!! well worth it though ha ha

Yes, am feeling the pressure and intensity of this very, very deeply even though my chart is mostly earth (Triple Toro, Triple Virgo here).

of course living on a boat in the Southern Ocean was easier. Travel is an escape from reality. Livin’ ain’t easy.

I’m not prone to reminiscing except for the best times I’ve had in my life were on holidays – Moon in Saggo 🙂

You could travel forever if you had the means. But wherever you go… there you are. Love that saying.

Ahh, you misunderstand me. This was no holiday. No sunshine. No cocktails. No hot deck hands. It was this epic job that Mystic turned into a post that I was referencing:

But in general, I agree ‘wherever you go, there you are’.

People are idiots and you just need to swat them off, who says things like to strangers unasked. Some people are nomads, not escapists. Escapists live in all forms, travel is adventure.

I hear what you’re saying ScorpBot. Sag rules my 4th house. If I could, I’d live in a motor home. Travel breaks the monotony of daily life. And in daily life, we hide our true values. When you blitz about the globe navigating conditions, you aren’t really owning your own…I don’t know…joie de vivre? You know, blowing it out like that, from where you are without making the whole external world reshape itself into a new adventure to entertain you?

Ive been feeling anxious. Had to go on a good jog tonight to burn off some of the anxiety.

Its a strange anxiety. It just registers physically.
Mentally and emotionally I am feeling much more positive and assured.

This moment feels like I am stepping onto the ledge of a cliff.
About to take that step off into faith and seeing if I will sprout wings.

quite a few people have shared a feeling of being on the verge and thus, taking some time this month to nourish themselves and make sure their foundations are solid 🙂

I can identify with this feeling also. I feel on the verge of something big, but there’s some fear residue leftover that is (I think) manifesting as anxiousness. I feel like I’m stuck between letting go and truly surrendering, and holding on… Argh, hope it clears soon but yes physical activity of any sort is beneficial. Good luck with it, power to you.

davidl

That’s the problem init. Surrender is like pregnancy you are or you aren’t . Imagine being half pregnant ? Then stop, cause you can’t.
Surrender is not a static state on this level. It’s a moment that stays longer and longer each time it’s practiced. It’s just a moment though. Once you can recognize it ( feelings of lightness, bliss) you can then call it up when needed.
The Aries method ? take a large match and burn every bridge to the things you ‘control’. See, nothing to control.

My first son was discovered in the womb , 4 weeks after I met his mum 🙂 oops To all intents and purposes … (That saying is very appropriate here) this was not what was meant to happen.

Yeah that’s how it feels to have Uranus, I had Uranus squaring my ASC for ages and the entire time I felt like I was vibrating with anxiety and this weird energy, all my hair started to fall out and I literally felt like I was getting electric shocks from every surface, It was awful. Feel a little like that now but on a much milder scale.

Physical activity helps burn that anxiety off. There really is no substitute for it – you can’t think or meditate off the energy. You have to burn it physically. I started ripping apart a stone wall out back yesterday. I feel SO much better for being worn out and having sunburn on my neck.

Yeah you’re totally right. Exercise is the best way to burn off that kind of “ailment”. But that in itself is a blessing too bc it’s not fit for consumption for certain conditions. When I had the Pluto in Sagg transh*t, I think I had a bad case of PTSD and/or Chronic Fatigue. Exercise would help so much as long as it wasn’t really exercise – like serene walks at night, away from the crowds… Sleeping, lol, etc. Any activity was activity for me.

I know what its like to fall into a pit and not have the energy to climb out. But I know too that exercise is the only thing that prevents. I am not in compliance with this truth.

Love Russell the Rad. Liz Greene talks a lot about Diana in her book, so I know more about her chart than I would otherwise. There are some mad stories regarding the timing of her death and where her remains were finally placed too.

I am the same Day and Month of brith as Princess Diana. My childhood home was opposite a family with the surname: Buckingham. We called it Buckingham Palace.

i’ll put my hands up for the ‘Had it/ over it’ peeps. Gem Sun, Aqua Rising, Grand Cross is sextiling or trining natal planets, no conjuncts. Have had/ am having a really frustrating few days, capped off by my sister-in-law saying to me yesterday that she could not longer look after Mum at home because she’d had three children and didn’t want to have to look after another baby. Mum has now been moved into a palliative care unit. Mum is 79, has stage IV cancer (diagnosed only in late July 2013). We were told a week ago that palliative… Read more »

So sorry to hear that sad news KG. My guess is that the SIL has had to get herself into a state to assert herself & feels bad about it. But that’s no help to you. What’s SIL’s astro sig? Good luck, xx.

K-Gem
K-Gem

thanks for the kind words, Sphinx. And yep: that person she would need to be assertive with is my bro, so can see that side of things.
She’s a 28 Cancer sun, Merc-Venus conjunct at 24 Leo, Mars at 11 Libra, Moon likely in Aries (don’t know birth time), Saturn at 16 Pisces.

Sphinx

That Saturn in Pisces seems relevant to me for some reason. I guess it might contain the kernel of some difficulty in sacrificing oneself for others in any way? Also Cancerians can be extreme imho, some are genius nurturers with little effort, for others it is a VERY conscious process. Almost painful. Curious about the bro now?

I don’t want to be insensitive but why is SIL looking after her husband’s mother (if I’m reading that correctly)? I’ve been through death by cancer of Mother, Aunt and MIL. It is entirely awful but if people cannot cope, good for them to admit it. It is beyond many people. There is no shame in admitting it.

K-Gem
K-Gem

I also have no problem about people admitting they can’t cope – it’s just that the comment wasn’t said in terms of SIL’s capacity to cope, but Mum’s: that she is a baby.

Sphinx
Sphinx

Agree, and I don’t think that’s insensitive. I have been through a few people I love dying from cancer. It’s a job you need to volunteer for, not be cooerced into doing. There is no shame in admitting you are up not up for it, it is much preferable in fact. It can be very traumatic.

K-Gem

And just to clarify: no coercion that I know of, although after 20+ years of marriage, I guess that’s probably not always so obvious.

but hey, then again, my bro did ask me today if I had a copy of Mum’s will…fact I did 6 months last year of 1-2 days Melbourne/5-6 days Gold Coast kinda being lost in the moment. Why I said ‘no’ to moving to GC and looking after Mum full-time was that I had no support network there. Setup in Melbourne didn’t make it possible.

I’ll stop commenting. If we wanted family saga, we’d watch Neighbours.

Best of luck & love to you KGem. Not easy at all, 🙁 not generally & not in this astro climate. Do hope you get all the support you could want. Xx.

Brand has put it so neatly, everyone can understand. Tired, yes, but it pays to show up…to work, to support, to dissect, to hear it told, to see it done, to get it done.

I feel like i need to thoughtfully put time into friendship at the moment. Everyone is busy; everyone is Zapping, some stumbling by the wayside…they have little time to party, and so do i but how you helped your friends will also be remembered when the Zap is over.

Work on Saturday, work on Sunday, too. Saturnananap: will take my cue from you!

I agree, about the friendship.. The Gemini in me misses people and friendships… My people (of all walks and corners of the world) have not so much fallen off the radar as done a runner and taken the radar with them 🙁 Its a hectically busy time and I think short, sweet catch-ups are best. quick Lunch here, coffee on the way somewhere else there, chat while driving a friend somewhere… Movie on a school night. Invite a pal around for dinner on a Tuesday. Ok I am whingeing now. I just miss my friends. Taking this as a sign… Read more »

YEs very true, and i don’t think it’s whingey, Pi. I also recall how many years ago i focused too too much on a partner and let friends slip – in my twenties – or took up my partner’s friends with more gusto. Boy did i learn!

Do you have any planets in the 11th House? I have Uranus and Pluto there and i go through this missing friendships all the time. Often it’s a result of my Sag/Piscean lifestyle but sometimes it’s hard to pin to that when i’ve been steady of job and place.

Yes, I suffer from gem rising and 9th house Sun, as far as attention span goes, but at the same time that gem rising and Jupiter-lilith in my toro 11th (sextile sun-merc) means I love reaching out to my peeps. Have found from previous slackness episodes that I have to specifically shake off a feeling of ” no time!! No time!!” And trust that the value of my friendships, plus the satisfaction I get from connecting, is worth it in itself. Then smile and dial, or even an sms to tell someone I am thinking of them , sometimes that’s… Read more »

Loooove that oyster pic. I think I have seen it before here? Anyway, it is perfect. Have been dreaming of wading through a tsunami aftermath for days. Dirty water everywhere.

Also feeling like I couldn’t clean my aura by channelling clean light it through me – then I realised I just had to burst out a pulse of clean light from WITHIN – we all carry it round with us after all.

I have those dreams too. Always dream of dirty water / floods / mud when feeling overwhelmed… Reiki training is coming in handy this April…

Sphinx

Did Reiki 1 with a very experienced teacher who was..compromised? Was disappointed & put off to see a ‘master’ with an aura like that.

But had a good experience lately with a friend who does 50% reiki, so am thinking to find a better teacher & perhaps try again. I just don’t get into the symbols so much, materialising concepts is only so useful in energy work imo. Different strokes I guess.

FIshgirl
FIshgirl

Agree, it’s all about your teacher. What type of reiki did you learn? I did Crystal Heart or reiki sechhem… I have the symbols taped all over my apartment so i can learn them better. It’s really just about intention though. If you forget a symbol you just think of what you’d like to create / intend…
After i did the course i left it for about a year, and have only been practising again this year, not sure why. The time feels right. Definitely helping with this month! What a month it is….

Sphinx
Sphinx

Agree, this is a very good time for Reiki. Reiki doesn’t challenge the brain, make you talk, may not even directly touch you.
It’s super Yin, no? To me reiki is what you do for someone when they are unable to do for themselves. People with PTSD are better off with reiki for example rather than talk therapy or hypnosis.
Really it’s a very, very reiki time we are having..

Fishgirl

Yes.. I agree with FIshgirl.. it’s all about the teacher. Fortunately for me I received Reiki II certificate and moved. My teacher turned into a selfish healer after I left. Very selfish. I don’t like the energy I have with her.

Yes me too. Merc in Scorp and Neptune conj Sun. 🙂 Almost photographic. I think in pictures. Had a great idea for a painting in a dream the other night. It was a bit Rene Magritte. Have a very strong sense of colour too (venus in Libra). Part of the reason I fell for the abstract Libran artist/barista because he explores colour in his work. I love this from his bio: “It is a mode of painting about the presentation and presence of colour” That last part about the “presence of colour”… so evocative!! *sigh* I knew he had to… Read more »

Sorry, but it’s good. This is critical LZ time, the Universe is doing you a favour.

Unless Neptune is a fuzzy maker… but nothing can be fuzzy in scorp I guess? What a lovely Mercury you have. 😉

“nothing can be fuzzy in scorp”

Damn right!! LOL and especially during a Saturn transit. Everything’s crystal clear.

I know its good he’s gone. These days I couldn’t be a LZ if I tried. What’s the point of LZ’ing over someone who’s unavailable! It’s stupid. Been there done that.
I just wish there was someone like him that’s available. Haven’t been in love since 1998!

Meh, maybe Sun/conj Neptune in the 10th I’ll have to settle for love of my work in this life.

Yes, it IS a long time since you’ve been in love. And you are rightly wanting to feel inspired by that person, whoever it will be.

The love of your work and the fulfilment you are getting from finally being immersed in art is going to bring all kinds of love in, I’m sure of it.
