Venus Number Crunches – Mercury Balances

Filed in Venus

Big Nothing

Hey People, i am back and thank you for your awesome emails and comments – they totally make a difference.  I felt supported and my Mars in Virgo did not guilt out (as can happen, lol) over being unwell.

Okay so more soon – i have some epic posts ready to go when i have caught up on emails – but two things: The Monthly Horoscopes for September are up and if you have not read them yet, please do. They’re more nuanced than usual because, well, there IS nuance in this here astro-scape. And Eclipse Season is coming.

Secondly, Mercury has just gone into Libra and Venus is soon to go into Virgo. This is a shift of vibe that sets us up brilliantly for the more crazy bats of Mars in Saggo from mid-month. Venus analyzes romance, prospects, art, fashion and so forth – Venus in Virgo is actually a brilliant bit of astro in which to purchase new clothes etc.  Super discriminating and suave. Mercury in Libra balances. If something has gotten out of whack within a relationship, pay attention because it’s about to get back “in whack.”

More on the Mercury in Libra versus the Zap Zone vibe in the Daily Mystic emails but hands up who can feel the shift? And it’s a good one because who the hell wants to greet the more free-wheeling, fast moving and radically candid Mars in Saggo from mid-month with an unclear mind or cluttered priorities?

Assess and seek balance to be perfectly prepped for the brave new Mars vibe, Eclipse Season and Mercury Retro.

Thoughts?

Hey Mystic so glad you are feeling better. The world feels put back to rights with your return to the people, but very glad to hear you didn’t suffer the guilt pangs of being away from work (well done you, but take the recovery slowly). I think it’s worth reporting that lots of people I know had this cold (or ‘flu?) that JUST won’t GO… you think it’s gone and then it’s back again. In the last month or so, for at least three whole days I’ve been vanquished by the virus (or whatever) and I’ve taken to my sickbed… Read more »

August sucked like i thought it would. Nothing but family fighting and stress. Hopefully Sept. will be better. Fall is normally better for me. I’m so glad Mystic is doing better! Yay! Mystic really is the most consistent and best, REAL astrologer out there on the net. You get what you pay for. those of you who are into Susan Miller, I was reading an interesting Reddit on her, and how her astro forecasts may have actually been her mother and how she has been possibly faking stuff. Looks like fakers might get busted under current astro. interesting. I stopped… Read more »

Early Sag with Virgo/Libra ruling my 7th, with natal Saturn conj. Jupiter and Venus conj. Pluto up in the Libra part of it. My relationship style for most of my life has been to micromanage a really intense fantasy involving another person and then furiously try to live up to it (not to mention become furious when the other person inevitably doesn’t live up to it). Then when I got close to getting the real thing, It’s turned me into a miserable, withholding ball of guilt and shame who really feels she doesn’t deserve what’s on offer — and assumes… Read more »

MMabel, where are you getting your astro info from?
Forget wrongs or right. It’s what is right FOR YOU.
Yes and my first thought over your first few lines was ‘she’s over thinking this’.
Fear just may put the ‘difficult’ (instead of ‘wrong’) person in your sphere.
7th is relationship you have with yourself and you have done the work so let go and trust.

My little Cappy Bunny tried to kidnap his grandfather from hospital tonight. He pulled the wheel chair over, directed/pulledSaggi Papi into it, then rolled him down a corridor to the lifts and presses the button and attempted to have him enter it. When we asked what he wanted he pointed at Gem & I and said, “aeroplane!”. We are going on a trip tomorrow & weren’t sure he understood it all.
Apparently he understands we are going very well!
We all cried when he cried that Saggi Papi couldn’t come. “Broken!!”, he said sadly pointing at the aged centaur’s leg.

I’m feeling out of sorts, up and down, this whole past month because I was laid off my job starting the last day of July. August was difficult, emotionally. I have my private practice, but don’t make ‘a living’ at it, at the moment. Taking all this time, now, to try to build that in, but so much is precarious. I have unemployment benefits, but nothing else to rely on. I have felt a little better since after the last new moon and since the sun went into Virgo. I’m more focused and a little more positive thinking and motivated.… Read more »

Been sitting in salt baths every night lately. When the sun goes down, it just soft music, candles and salty water. The fire and water combo really helps. That awesome astrologer MM mentioned Steve told me I needed chromium as I was literally burned out. Ordered some on amazon, liquid as have not been able to eat or digest for a few weeks – I swear that dude is psychic. I’ve been on the liquid chromium and magnesium as well as trace elements, some mineral concoction I sort of intuited for my self…aloe vera juice, that sort of thing. Today… Read more »

be careful with chromium. i was on that to combat sugar issue related fatigue and it only caused a vague hypomania coupled with insomnia. I have heard that flushing type niacin can restore appetite as well as colostrum. good luck with the chromium though!

I’m Virgo Sun-Saturn conj in the 11th. Gem Moon trine Asc-Venus-Mars-Pluto conj in Libra. Venus is presently conj my natal Mercury in Leo. Neptune is opposing my natal Sun (natal Saggo Neptune is direct opposite my Moon, and sextile Libra everything). I don’t know, should I be side-eyeing this Merc-Venus energy swap? This transit seems like it should be against my religion or something. I guess all of this is a good thing…? All signs – chart and otherwise – are pointing to the end of my 4-year seclusion from financial and social responsibility (Libra + Moon trine juju is… Read more »

I was in that exact stage a year ago, haha.

What was a great introduction for me was a free book on astro.com called Mapping the Psych. It’s under “all about astrology”. (I’m not sure I can link it because of spam rules)

Also, start digging into Mystic’s archives – there’s a great tag called “d.i.y. astro” and also “hi – low” astro off the top of my head are good to start.

Then, start getting familiar with your birth chart, start observing the people around you, check out astro books from the library, etc. Have fun!!

I paid a million to get divorced from a guy worth hundreds of millions and still figured I got off lightly. Buying my freedom was the best thing I ever did. The only difference for me, as a woman between being married and being in prison is that at least in prison you don’t have to cook. Some women were just born to run free. Or maybe find someone just as wild to run with but NEVER to be tamed. I’m biased because of my SN in Kataka in the 8th House. I’ve always had rich men trying to buy… Read more »

Our respective plutos and saturns square each other’s by a degree. He’s got Pluto on his Saturn and Saturn on his Pluto. Our composite chart has Pluto-Saturn conjunct by less than a degree, opposing Venus, and sextiling (one degree) Neptune-NN-karma conjunct by less than half a degree. *FACEPALM* He asked me if I destroy my lovers BEFORE I told him my history (2/3 ain’t bad), then told me that if I… Read more »

i agree about the single thing BUT much you can do alone (with mirrors) like creating the sacred space, donning the magician’s robe/kimono, visualisations. And if it’s so magic (actually ‘mystical’) then it could draw you The Lover?
Have found some of the visualisation techniques during lovemaking to be very powerful.

So glad to hear you’re feeling better Mystic. My mars is at 7 virgo, sun is at 10 so I’m currently having a Neptune in opposition transit…I think that explains my weird desire to watch pirate and Peter Pan movies this weekend, huh? (I watched Hook, and the live action version, and now I want to be a mermaid). Since I was a kid, the ‘going to Neverland and never growing up’ fantasy really appealed to me. So it’s not a surprise I’m drawn to that now — my birthday is tomorrow. I’m turning 27. It’s not a ‘big’ birthday… Read more »

Thanks. Yeah, I guess there is no official age unless you want to say 18 or 21 (but they’re babies).

Why 42? Because it’s the answer to life, the universe, and everything?

Good thing I intend on staying young at heart forever. Not jaded or cynical. Maybe my nostalgia bender was meant to remind me of that.

Allow me to bust the “shit together by age XX ” myth. I decided that it’s a fiction concocted by the change-averse.. Life is a work in progress, especially for career-changing mutable signs. Guessing with that astro you might have a Gemini asc as well? So more mutables in the mix.
Anyway, high five for retraining , congrats on imminent graduation, and happy birthday!

Also if it helps. define ‘shit’, define ‘together’. for yourself.
I see that you’re not all eaten up about this, but i’ll philosophise anyway. I know some who have the job, the house, the guy or girl, one or more of these things, but inside themselves? raw, brittle, green, fearful, whatever.
Not to mention, we can be on the spectrum of shit-together-ness. There are no absolutes in this world 🙂 (absolute zero maybe)

Career changing its not that hard VK. If youve got a good intent and willpower its easy really.
I became too “old” for marketing jobs so morphed and took a 3 month sprint to finish the quals into a trainer – a job I did 9 years ago and love.d. Bit of a natural being a Leo too and thst makes it easy as well. Go for it.i say.

But I am ‘going for it’. And it’s taking me more than 3 months but I am learning at a fast pace. I am learning graphic design – all aspects of it, from print to advertising to logos to web and apps. I’m getting a 2 year degree at the community college and putting together a good portfolio. that’s good that career changing was faster for you but not every career is that quick to get into as some naturally require a lot of training. like I said I am very career focused right now.
