The Dark Moon Does Not Stall Your Upward Hustle

Filed in Moons

Norman Parkinson

Yes yes, having the Moon Void in Taurus for practically a whole day AND it’s a Dark Moon AND Venus is Void AND Mars is still stuck at Nine degrees AND some of the news in the media is sad/crap/triggering BUT none of this stalls your upward hustle and general Awesome. You just obey physical cues toward rest/hydration and you know, processing. Moon management is like the most basic and sensual dimension of astrology and the first tenet is you don’t shriek around the place being all existential and tub-thumping on the Dark Moon. Nor – okay this is Venusian not the Moon – try to advance/catalyze relationships when Venus is in more reflective mode. Score yourself SOME sort of reflective stillness, watch for the synchronicity and omens zipping quietly around the place, check your Scopes for the more personal take on this Dark Moon/Strange Astro and just be coolly in wait for The Awesome. Everything speeds up with this New Moon.Β  So how are y’all doing out there?

I feel like The Furies are after me these days… It’s like one thing after another……first the broken toe, then work troubles, then home troubles, including today where someone tried to steal an $800 apartment deposit from me!!!!!!…..luckily I stopped the check in time…. I’m feeling SO aggro with Mars direct, just about tore someone a new one at the bank trying to get this sorted out….. This all started May 9th, with the broken toe, but before then, this year had actually been going really great for me! It’s still going pretty well, in that I’ve successfully ‘put out… Read more »

offering apples to a dark horse πŸ™‚

That horse, though, is not that thrilled to have something tight around the top of its throat there. The dark band just behind its head I think is creating the discomfort: hmm. assume came off after the shoot tho.

I almost got into argument with former artist friend, who is now a bit of a Qi Vamp. This 41 yo woman is finally being forced to grow up and take responsibility for her life, and she doesn’t like it one bit. She tried to blame me for shifting a painting in our new studio complex, but I was very clear that I hadn’t moved it, and would never put a painting on someone else’s artwork. Then the organising person admitted she moved it when putting in new carpet. ‘Friend’ later knocked on my studio and apologised for assuming I… Read more »

Ah yes, the not so pass agg artist community. I ran film and multi media studio’s for years and was always surprised how much jealousy and rage went on between the creatives. And the attitude to money, OMG, seriously a lot went on like criminals. Stealing from each other, stealing from clients, trying to rip me off.
Slippery ego driven bunch.
Co ops, communes, such a great idea, but so hard to traverse.

My revelation is that I am TIRED of inhabiting the underworld. Done with this stuckness. Over it all. Time to start walking the path marked EXIT. To that end, cleaning the cobwebs, steaming the floors with basil- orange oil, doing the Egyptian exfoliation, smoke-bombing the house with frankincense, tending, pruning, and planting beautiful gardens, drinking poppy tea (I know, I know, but it’s not alcohol), clunking out old songs on the piano and facing the feelings they bring up, meditating, and rearranging everything. Generally being an isolated bundle of angry misery. This dark Taurus moon is my natal so I… Read more »

You know, somehow I think she gained personal power away from her mother Demeter. Had to grow up real fast, became a Queen of Hades

Interesting, I suppose there is an element of being forced into independence or gaining of identity. The Triple Goddess being made of up Persephone, Demeter and Hecate as you know I’m sure, the demarcating of the identities & of the seasonal boundaries of winter etc. is I suppose only brought about by Hades’ actions. Demeter as Mother of Earth is a powerfully of the Earth, sunshine and yet lives in Olympus – I guess it is balancing that Persephone & Hecate remain in the Underworld. For me Persephone is just so sad and beautiful, a vulnerable, soft but warm light… Read more »

“don’t shriek around the place being all existential and tub-thumping”… Ha, oops. In a nutshell that was me, yesterday. I’m never usually up nor down on the dark moon, but nearly lost the plot yesterday morning – firstly, awoke stupidly early from a horrible dream about Nazis, couldn’t get back to sleep as it was so disturbing, so I got up and decided to finish the book I was reading, which coincidentally ends in early 1930s Berlin, just as Hitler is taking power. So far so depressing. Then the (actual, real-life, 2014) news began to filter in re. the results… Read more »

I got quite a bit of stuff done this weekend and made it out to socialize just for a few hours Sunday after my organization binge but was so tired I was basically bedridden yesterday. For no reason? So I guess I blame the dark moon. Getting the candida killing supplements today and starting on the diet. I’m gonna be such a cranky hungry monster but hopefully it works…one of the biggest issues for me is the digestive drama (of course) and that I cannot stay hydrated. πŸ™ if I get improvement on those two things it will be worth… Read more »

Dark Moon in Taurus plus Venus has me totally LOVESICK. Huge man crushes, writing to my Virgo friends for comfort, or my Cancer friends, or sharing recipe link with my foody Leo friends, smelling my old, empty bottles of Carthusia Fiori Di Capri and listening to that vampire of the people with no boyfriend or no girlfriend: Nick Cave. I want to marry Michiel Huisman, especially the way he looked in Nashville. I’m totally withdrawn and distracted. I’m in love with a Pisces.

I’m a Cap with Virgo Rising and Libra Moon.

Invictus, I am two weeks post-op & already I feel better than I did before surgery! They took everything but one ovary– uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, an ovary– & it still hurts a bit when I sneeze/bend over/etc, but it’s nothing compared to the misery I had endured for *years*. Beyond happy that I had those defunct bits banished from my beautiful bod & getting stronger every day. What a trip, from the Scorpio full moon to now… Loving this Gemini new moon vibe!

Ahhhh… I went through the w/e drinking a lot. Very sad yesterday after dealing with pass/agg Pisces drama. It is unbelievable how I attract these divorced men who are SO burned by their ex’s. At least he’s responding to me though! The toro/gem would just run and hide. I honestly feel bad for them. Both women were harsh money hungry bitches!! I don’t care what anyone says… it was wrong what they did! It’s just wrong. These guys did not beat them, try to kill them and/or mentally torture them. WTF!! any..whooo…I feel better today.

yeah really. that’s what my ex would say about me, and he has threatened, abused and is still intimidating me. it’s more likely that he doesn’t take responsibility for his life. or that he has a borderline personality disorder. what my psych said: run, don’t walk. and try to think better.

gemyogi

Men who trash their talk their exes, and have been burned by them, have probably done their share of burning, or caused it by their behaviour, IMO.l

Also be wary of men who don’t have friends, and don’t like their mothers….

My ex was always bitterly complaining about his first wife who ‘trapped’ him by getting pregnant. Of course he stayed with her for 12 years and had another child with her….

He was SO passive aggressive.

I hear you all.. I haven’t been in a married situation that turn nasty. He does seem a little bipolar.. the toro/gem too.. Both lost their fathers when they were young and obviously have mothers. But I felt like they didn’t really like their mothers hence why they can’t keep a relationship with a woman. The toro/gem would meet women and these women would dump him very quickly. It didn’t bother him. The Pisces.. I was warned by a girl to be careful. The Pisces is very quick to “block” people who put him down. He had me block 2… Read more »

Yes.. he told me to do so and I gladly did it.. because I don’t want the drama. So, I blocked them. I don’t want to get in the middle of his crap and their crap. It’s his issue.. not mine!

Virgo Ellie

Thanks Calypso.. His request to have me block some people was way at the beginning of us getting to know each other. Not recently. I did because I know these people. He is very unstable and he doesn’t know it. Do they ever they ever realize it? It is very sad! You just want to shake them because they have potential but they don’t know it.

Gemyogi

If you don’t have friends, you aren’t very likeable or empathetic or interested in others. Not saying they are sociopaths, but there’s a lot of pressure being in a relationship with someone if you’re their only friend or source of intimacy. Big red flag to me — I don’t want that responsibility!

Spent this US holiday weekend having an (in retrospect) hilarious misadventure in the woods with my husband. Despite so many things going wrong, I did end up feeling recalibrated, which is something I sorely needed. Had a fight with my husband, but it was a productive one, and we actually decided not only THAT we need to talk about things in our relationship, but HOW we need to address them and WHAT we need to do. This is quite huge, and we both are feeling good about our needs being addressed equally this way. I think it’s appropriate relationship action,… Read more »

After being in front of my computer in a semi fugue state for days working on my article and then my new site my brain and bum were turning to sludge yesterday. The tarot (WHICH BTW IS FUQIN AMAZING) told me to GET OUTSIDE. So I did. Instantly felt better. I actually realised I didn’t even know what day it was.

Just sent an email to someone who may turn to be a potential interest. The tone is light, friendly, non-committal, nothing too out, nothing heavy. I thought hard about if this would be a good time to write, if I could wait for the New Moon, etc. At the end I decided that I didn’t want an email and its potential tone to clutter my mind — I was afraid of a trace of LZ-ness in my psyche. Now that it is out, for whatever it is worth, I can concentrate on cleaning the house and on my intentions forthcoming.… Read more »

Actually, it is the wondering if they are going to reply or not that clutters your mind. I have no idea if you are dealing with a male or a female here but if it is male, remember your Darwin! I personally follow mystic’s relatively rare “go for it with the communication cues” and get excellent results. I also love the very leo visual of myself as queen of the castle, incommunicado, doing noble deeds or thinking noble thoughts. Or, i am afraid, watching real housewives.

Quadrupled

It is a male and yes, his response comes with pigeon mail. I also counted “waiting as mental clutter” trap.

As soon as I sent my email, I deleted all traces, my reply, his mail etc. Since then, I smudged the house with sage, exfoliated, set the TV for a spy movie, gathered the cats around me and turned into a lounge-lizard, thinking if I should order Chinese for dinner. πŸ™‚ what is remember Darwin?

Lord, poor little poppet!! What a sweet, sensible girl to forgive the pony. I dreamed obsessively of owning a horse growing up – it was like an illness. Then this dream more or less manifested in me having 30 or so horses foisted on me & I was also required to do tours on these half-wild creatures while having no practical experience. Make no mistake about it – a horse is a tonne of flesh that has sharp hooves and teeth, whose survival has depended upon adrenalin production and who have the mental and social ability of a farm-yard chicken.… Read more »
