The Astro En Route

Strange Men

Everyone knows that a New Moon in Virgo – next Monday – is bound to have some sort of a New Broom vibe to it. But because this lunation is going to be opposite Neptune, it’s informed by a deeper, more surreal and visionary scheme. Most likely something subtle and secret.

In the meantime, it’s all about managing the non-stop “realistic insights” crap of Mars on Saturn during a Dark Moon without going bats.

In case you missed it, the Daily Mystic for Wednesday is posted on the Daily Mystics page here – times for New York, L.A., Dubai, London, Hong Kong and Sydney – and a pep talk, Bookmark it!

Next week is so interesting that i also posted the Weekly Horoscopes from August 23 early.

Will Lilith on Venus in Leo be conflicting – our own personal Madonna-Whore Complex?Β  Or super-empowering? How you work the Neptune opposition to that New Moon could well prove to be a “reveal” of how well you channel Neptune style energies; ghosts, your own myths, addictions, magical thinking and all.

Saturn/Mars are passing over my natal Mercury in the 8th, opposing natal Chiron. I think the Mars-Chiron opposition is exact tomorrow. Venus and Jupiter are right near my North Node in the 6th. I do feel like I’m getting the hang of the 6th. Small household tasks are very satisfying. I finally swept up all the sand on my floor, I have the right kind of incense, two jars of sun tea are brewing on the windowsill, and the dog and I are 100% in love. I’m not feeling the 8th/2nd house axis stuff so much yet but I’ve spent… Read more »

Ok so I’ll finish the videos I’m editing and publish them Monday morning at 10:20 with the New Moon coming in. I like that deadline.

ooh I’m looking forward to the virgo new moon. It’s closest to my Virgo mars and not too far from my sun.

Also I have Lilith in Leo natally too. I forget, and think that I don’t have any planets in Leo, but I have Lilith is in the first degree of Leo, and my ascendent is in the last degree of Cancer, so I’m Lilith rising really. I need to remember that because that’s pretty empowering. fuq yeah.

I’m pretty excited for this new moon – chase away the last cobwebs of mars in libra retro madness! I’ve been tangled in my own love zombie-dom since november, only in the past month have I extricated myself! Damn kataka-aqua googoo hoodoo. I want earthiness again.

So, I’m going to: clean my room/flat. Make a new online dating profile. Hit the bikram yoga hardcore and get back on my bike now the weather is warming up. Attend gigs every monday at my fave pub. Set aside time in a cafe every week to write. Order some poetry books.

Animal sign: saw a huge rabbit (a hare?) Race accross the road in front of my car on sun night, it was late and raining …

Dream: I was digging in the earth and hit something. I pulled out an onion bulb! But even better, it had split so it was two onion bulbs growing together, I split it in two and gave one half to someone … (whenever I have dreams about bulbs or gardening or things growing, it’s a good sign indeed)

Yay!!! My 5th house is Virgo and am in a 5th house sort of mood as I tend to be around August/September…negotiating/collaborating with boss on the art/yoga book and re-committing to my creativity by realizing it’s not just about finishing my own Ultimate Book Concept someday and obsessing about it but expressing myself in everything I do, big or small, and having fun finding new methods of doing so. Sort of the message of that book The Artists Way. I am Venusian and I need that to be happy. Maybe the money is taking so long because I’ll find it… Read more »

Re-reading the Artists Way, and it still has a lot to offer. The writing pages she recommends a bit similar to yr recent quote about habit, habit, habit. It does actually work!
I’m often inspired, but it’s in making myself physically go through with the ideas that’s bringing me back my mojo.

I have Natal Mars conjunct Saturn in the 6th house. Running is feeling amazing this week! Also dreams have felt really positive & I’m waking up in the morning feeling focused. I’ve bizarrely been taking goji juice everyday… I have no idea if it works but I felt compelled to try it.

My dream last night featured me standing at the top of two different waterfalls ready to leap off. I wasn’t scared or anything it just felt very pragmatic … very Mars & Saturn πŸ™‚

ok, so i am drowning in good fortune right now as it relates to health, career, children, and family/friends. Life is good. However, still … no dating scene. it’s really bizarre. I mean I have had zero, nada, nothing for 1 year. I guess it’s saturn in the 7th? I have tried to be good too. no zombie episodes , or bad juju floating around out there as it relates to men. who knows!

All is odd. And intense. And I’ve retreated deep into my 12th house moon-igloo. There is a fire in there.

That Aquarian full moon is still sending out waves through my Aquarian family (my 4th house). Grandfather’s funeral tomorrow. Now, one of his daughter’s won’t be there – seriously shit illness scenario – stuck in hospital.

Literally the opposite degrees in my chart, Jupiter/Venus/Lilith over my MC, and a Lilith return. Ha. Whatever that means. Can already feel Saturn nudging ascendant. Running, riding, studying my way through. Slight bewilderment.

I have come across the words “ebba and flow” and “analysis paralysis” over and over again this past week…its scaring me. Can’t figure out what the lesson is. Feeling a bit lost these days.

And i know the patter of self-sabotage is beginning….i don’t show up to the thing, make countless excuses for myself to others. Frankly embarrassing. I can do better. But don’t… Read more »

Have increasingly been heading twds IBS as I age.
So I have been doing a de-parasite protocol & been g/f, dairy free, yeast free for a month or more now. Drinking 3 lts a day with a pinch of salt. This week I have been doing a few colonic irrigations. It’s AWESOME. We have said goodbye to some unwelcome guests.

If it is successful, fantastic…Lost too much weight on raw food, minimal carbohydrate, I’m now careful of oil of oregano – I overdid it. Slippery elm bark with cinnamon and honey with drops of lime or lemon is helping a little, we even suspended olive leaf extract, just so powerful, but good diet, plenty of water, rest, makes all the difference. probiotics have made the biggest impact on our health – saccharomayces boulardi and rhamnosus I think are the most effective strains for IBS symptoms. My child is still having some health challenges but intestinal health is so much better!

aquasunbird

Forgot to add we just discovered RAW MILK, and it has improved my child’s skin, no more dermititis, that and more vitamin C, with some biodynamic yoghurt, lots of fresh veg and fruit, organic meat (dare I say it – as we were amaenic B12 deficient to the point of very troubling nueropathic pain, cramping) sounds bizarre but it is making a difference…

Lastly new moon on my jupiter 12th house conjunct ascendant, opposite natal mercury 6th…Trine cancer moon 10th, Oh well…Maybe a prominent caring women of social significance to the health rescue?

I was diagnosed with two parasites, one an infection for blastocyst hominis, its debatable as to how pathogenic it really is, some think it exists in people who present as asymptomatic , regardless, just some people suffer and unfortunately I also lost too much weight (colitis), about 47kg (being 165cm) as doctor explained it would be hard to be well nourished, but naturopath put me onto metagenics saccharomyces boulardi probiotic, and another product called cell protect (potent) liver cleansing / bach flower drops (maybe to strong?) and magnesium phosphate supplement.

I know that cycle and how awful and scary it feels to see you are approaching it, know that it’s bad, and not be able to stop! But it sounds like you have learned those lessons and I am sure you will be fine. Sometimes we just need a break. Or maybe something inside is trying to be heard and this is how it grabs your attention? For IBS diet is everything…agree with Sphinx that gluten/dairy free is best. I like aloe but didn’t get earth-shattering results from it. A lot of people who have IBS have candida overgrowth. I… Read more »

Mine is scaring me too (taurus). It’s making me think bad things are going to come this weekend because I’m trying again with someone who hurt me seriously to the point of almost crippling me in the past. What can I say there is still something there. Could someone please help me at all with this? I have mars, Jupiter, Saturn in Virgo, 3rd house. Being things are looking up for virgo does this help me out even a tiny bit? Please ????

I’d say, chill out, relax and watch for the signs!

A new moon on your stellium there sounds great – with some clear communication highlighted (3rd House) re emotions.

Also, let go a bit. You know if you are meant to be together you have lots of other lives to enjoy him (or not!) in.
Recognise the connection and understand if he has failed you this time.
But KNOW he’ll be back for another round in the ring if that’s what you really want.

You are always together in spirit. πŸ˜‰

Thankyou so so much. I really appreciate that. I need to get some sort of translation done on my cheat because I’m very green when it comes to understanding it. I have a grip on the houses and general signs but that’s about it. Taurus sun & mercury in 12th house ( not sure if that partly makes me a watery person) Aries moon in 10th, gemeni asc, venus in gemeni in 1st, Chiron taurus in 11th, true node Leo in 3rd, midheaven Pisces – all seems fairly out there &.

Hi, pi here.
What I am reading here is that you had a partner who deliberately caused you an injury that nearly crippled you. And you want to get back together with him. Is that correct?

Hi Pi, What I had/have is a piscean partner, who confused the hell out of me, but perhaps I confused the hell out of him too, which why I was wondering about the placement of some of my houses/planets, like are we both a bit neptunian? He came & went, communicated then went m.i.a for weeks @ a time, came back, you get the drift. We went a long time where I cut him off cos id had it. Somehow we started seeing each other again (loneliness? What if we can just chill & it’ll work this time? He is… Read more »

Oh & the injury wasn’t physical, the crippling was emotional. Either way one would be no better than the other though hurt is hurt.

Well I’m glad you explained the crippling bit, because I thought it was physical too. But I don’t agree with you physical abuse is not the same as emotional abuse. Both are unacceptable but physical is downright dangerous and should under no circumstances be accepted.

So many commenters seem to be sharing an avatar here. Weird. The comment I am replying to is not mine, although I agree with the general sentiment. As a Pisces I know that we can be a bit hard to figure out … So, sympathies there. We’re pretty good at turning a blind eye to the crap for as long as possible. If the relationship has legs, the stars will fall into place. If it won’t hold together in a strong breeze, it doesn’t matter what the astro is doing. Either way, you’ll be fine. X

Re: the physical/emotional abuse I can agree on that, and to Pi thankyou, I have decided pretty much just that what will be will be & Im not going to waste time doing my own head in over it. One little thing I’ve learnt is that it’s true what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, or smarter. Be aware of potential crap but don’t create it by being suspicious & degrading myself by lowering my own self worth believing it will happen again because I’m not good enough. If it happens again maybe it’s the powers that be telling me… Read more »
