Let’s Do Alchemy Baths Every Night Until The Eclipse

Filed in Astro-Beauty

Jim Steranko

We could, seriously, do an Alchemy Bath every night until the Eclipse. The Full Moon in Aries one in early October, that is. Seven weeks or whatever of non-stop Alchemy Baths.

You probably already know what these are – i knew all about them BUT the term “Alchemy Bath” is from the astrologer Steve Nelson.

My version of it is a the whole box of baking soda + a kilo of epsom salts & voila – energy shift, toxins (both literal and psychic) leeched out, minerals infused and skin softened. You can go off your head googling the rad benefits of Alchemy Baths – you can add grated ginger or lavender, you can play Hippy Whale Music,Β  you can burn a black candle and cast spells, you can skulk in glorious sloth.

The Alchemy Bath will still work. The only “rule” is that you need to get up and go straight to bed afterward, no stuffing about on anything electronic,Β  no product – just zonk straight into bed where you will sleep beyond belief and dream incredible dreams.

Alchemy Baths turn leaden emotions and low spirits into some psychic version of gold.

Who’s in?

Have had the most Earth and Sun and Moon dreams lately..

You know like when you are laying upon a man’s chest with your head and hair spread out a bit and you go to leave but his mannerisms stop you from doing so as he does not want you to leave and you (inwardly) give a little “oh, he wants me to stay”

~This great mystery~

Earth, Sun and Moon…

This is the concoction I use when taking normal baths (bi carb soda + magnesium sulfate + lavender oil)! Who knew they were Alchemy Baths!

It’s great to use as an exfoliator too, just be sure to really moisturise afterwards!

Sounds fab! If it hasn’t been mentioned already, don’t forget to buy the aluminium free bicarb for an even more alchemical soak. Also very good for a gargle or two xx

I do mine with Ylang-Ylang & only soak for 20 minutes so as not to re-absorb any toxins (since I’ve heard this, Mars in Virgo wouldn’t allow me to sit there any longer) and then I do a plain warm water rinse. SWEET dreams!

Natal moon in the 4th house. baths are my church/stupa/journal. I will alchemy bath, yes I will.

Ah, never made that connection. Water moon in 4th, conjunct Neptune… of course baths are what I turn to when I’m out of sorts- my sanctuary.

One thing I love to do is oatmeal in an old (clean) stocking, tied at the end, in the bath. Don’t know if it’s got any psychic benefits, but the water feels silky and lovely.

Okay! I take baths almost every day anyway. They are definitely one of the upsides to being single.

I’m into the astrology now. My Libra game feels tight. I got hit on and flirted with more today than I think I have all year. Nothing special going on today, just going about my business and not letting anything derail me.

This is the first part of a Saturn exam I’m getting. I know the rest of it will be here with the eclipses and will probably not be as easy as this part, but I am ready.

I have to do them in a tin bath…have only done epsom salts, will add some baking soda next time! Maybe some ginger too!

This sounds PERFECT to me! I wouldn’t be able to do it every night, though. Probably just once a week until then, perhaps I could pick the most astro-auspicious day each week……. Man! I am really LZ-ing and then Lilith-self-righteously-pissed off at my current love situation. Just like the astro says we shouldn’t do! But…..I’m not acting on it. It’s an inside job, working with it within myself. Wrote out all kinds of intensive telling-off letters, and then my feelings of longing and intense desire, and of course did not send any of this to him! And I won’t……we don’t… Read more »

of course take with grains of Celtic salt as I don’t know shit about your particulars flowerchild, however I have had SN rels and just bear in mind that with those heavy-hitting SN connections, this strong bond you feel might be about bringing you karmic lessons rather than a lifelong love. Aaaand, Neptune. all the best x

flowerchild
flowerchild

Yeah, at 46, I’m not so interested in any more heavy hitting karmic lessons. Perhaps the lesson here is to side-step the whole thing. He makes that pretty easy in that he seems pretty ‘whatever’ about the whole thing even though he keeps coming back, too.

The draw here for both of us, I think, has been his Venus conjunct my Mars in Pisces right on my MC and opposing my Pluto in Virgo on my IC. Angular planets and a gnarly Mars/Pluto opposition and his lovely Venus has fallen into that mess….

Flowerchild, as mystic keeps saying “if the best you can say about the relationship is that it’s karmic…..”

And do you really want to be with someone who is “whatever” about you??

Of course he’s gonna keep coming back for sex.

flowerchild
flowerchild

Exactly! I think when I was younger I perceived karmic connections as ‘exciting’ and therefore thought that they would go toward a positive/idealistic outcome but learned through the years that those types of relationships were mostly the opposite of that. So, in this one, since it’s looking like I’ve caught another of these fish, I think I’d better run in the other direction! And yeah, of course I don’t want to be with someone who is ‘whatever’ about me. It’s part of the reason I’m able to stay away from it for long periods of time because it makes me… Read more »

Ordered some essential oils (ylang ylang, iris) to mask the smell and get my aromatherapy on. Done epsom salt soaks before but not noticed very much of a difference though baths are always… Read more »

I like how you describe the dual patterns, Rache, as being within time and outside of it. Have noticed recently how this manifests in my life, though i feel it as artmind and organised mind, and have been aiming to understand how it works for me so I can access both, as in shift states easily without feeling blocked. Like in the last 10 years I have become increasingly tuned into organised mind. This has brought me some material benefits as in buying a house etc but really led me way away from artmind. And the financial difficulties and uncertainties… Read more »

Hitler was a Jew. He was not tall, blonde or blue eyed. Not what the Latin people called teuton-tall blonde one; denoting the Germanics of n europe and Scandinavia.

This has to be one of the most disgusting lies I have ever read. I’m not sure why you hate Jews, I don’t really care. But to express your hatred that way is pure evil.
Why not take your foul soul to some other blog that is set up for this kind of thing.
Here’s hoping you step in front of a fast moving bus in the near future.

Now I will put a rider on this response. The line appears to connect my comment to yours. If it doesn’t dismiss this comment. If it does my following comment will allay your concerns. We’ll harsh words especially after you did not ask for clarification. First of all it would benefit your understanding that I do not hate the Jews. If the Gazans stopped fighting and their insurgencies there’d be peace. If Israel stopped fighting there’d be no Israel! Second Hitler was a political opportunists and his heritage is in Jewry in part. Like many, most have multi heritages. So… Read more »

Oh I see, the poor Germans were manipulated by Hitler into starting a world war, murdering around 8 million Jews, homosexuals and gypsies the list goes on. Just following orders ? Right. Must have been hard for them. Next time you feel that ache in your solar plexus bend over and give yourself a nice big uppercut. It might bring you to your senses. The idea that one person is responsible for these crimes against humanity is ignorance in its worst form. And perpetuating the idea just makes other ignorant people feel comfortable to chime in with their horrific lies.… Read more »

astro revision discovery: When Mars conjuncted the North Node in Oct 2012, it did so on my DC, just as a majorly fated and important relationship was starting up. Far out, hey? I knew the NN there had tripped something, don’t know how I missed the Mars Factor before.

Yes, once or twice a week would be enough for me too!

My Saturn in Virgo just went:

1kg Epsom salts = $8
Box of Bi-carb = $2 (at least)
x 7 days = $70 per week
x 7 weeks = $420…
and $420 = a weekend away instead!

For many years I only had access to a shower. I liked sprinkling some essential oil around the edges of the shower (just in the corners so that you do not slip on it) and then the hot water and steam makes for a great aromatic experience. Eucalyptus or Rosemary is great for this. You can incorporate the epsom salts etc in a scrub, as you said.
