Jittery Dark Moon Time Warp

Filed in Moons, Pluto

Al PArker

The Zap Zone may enhance our personal grip on the Zeitgeist – our every synapse baying for personal evolution but it makes others just transmit ever more loudly from their H.Q. in the tar pits. AND obviously, it’s also manifested as some atrocious (literally) actions that are distressingly flooding our news media.

Add to that the tidal drag of the Dark Moon right before a Solstice/New Moon/Uranus Direct and Saturn about to change signs for a distinct case of the jitters. AND Saturn-Uranus like this = a time warp. Think Flash Nostalgia, What-could-i-have-been-thinking (?) type flashbacks to disempowered or inauthentic moments from your past and the brazen desire to morph NOW.  If only you weren’t low on batt at the moment.

It all picks up from next week’s New Moon/Solstice/Uranus Direct extravaganza AND the weekend is super-snazzy Venus-Mars-Pluto-Uranus action that sort of sets the scene for next Feb. So buck up, count blessings, try to support those feeling more flimsy with these times turning screw, read your Scopes for more and remember that Jupiter is in Leo. LEO.  Epic hair, music, art, commerce, scent and confidence won’t exactly hasten the apocalypse.

Wednesday night my dream embodied the above…felt all jittery and antsy in my apartment. So on impulse walked out barefoot into the rainy night to walk the streets of my childhood. My mind was working lightning fast too process but just spinning gears. it was very uncomfortable. I wondered how I could slow the spin and process substance. But where would I get insight? As I thought this my cell phone rang and it was you Mystic…checking in, asking why I was wasting the current great energy on spinning my wheels like this? I answered I just couldn’t seem to… Read more »

Tell me about it. My little Aries sister is very susceptible to these kinds of things, she gets very depressed/anxious/etc. and she doesn’t take anyone’s calls which therefore makes my Leo dad very hysterical because he doesn’t know what’s going on. I tell her that she’s not the only one feeling in this manner and to relax until next week. I’ve been having back and neck spasms that reach up to my head so I’m trying to stretch more but I’m kind of bad at keeping that healthy habit. I’m reupholstering my kid sister’s boots with a famous painting so… Read more »

I looked at the chart for the week and I couldn’t help but think that Pluto was just little rabbit foo foo and venus mercury sun, etc looked like innocent field mice about to be bopped on the head.

So I I guess I’m being lighthearted about the imminent cleansing.

I found equilibrium last night watching the extremely manic Scorcese-directed “Wolf of Wall Street.” It was like the movie performed all of my jitters for me so I was able to sleep. The guy I’d been seeing and I are starting to untangle our argument/breakup from last week. I don’t know if being in a relationship is the best thing for us and I refuse to make any decisions about that right now, but communication has been going well, and I feel good about that. Today I decided I’d crank up my meditation regime in prep for the retreat, make… Read more »

I’m feeling this more as if it was a crazy Full Moon vibe rather than a New Moon. I have *not* felt tired for well over a year – since my crowded Leo 10th H (pluto-venus-mars-uranus-mercury-moon) has been hit by Jupiter. And now the 10th House is being zapped by Mars from the 4th further activating that planetary festival … So much FIRE!!!. ..and now the zz… I know i’ve banged on about this before, but I feel like a human battery filled up to dangerous levels with cosmic rays. Neither running nor meditating techniques are that calming. BUT –… Read more »

Sirens wailing thru the dark last night, & I went upstairs to a higher vantage point to see where they were going: the intersection a mile down the road from me. I immediately flash back to New Year’s day 2013 when my little bro with a drinking prob drove head-first, drunk, into a utility pole just beyond my property, snapping the pole in two & totalling his trunk– as well as knocking out power to my place– and I cannot breathe. Instant panic, & remorse for not kicking his ass last month when I smelled alcohol on his breath. Then… Read more »

Ambivalent about the ageing thing, going to be 50 next year and I look at photos of even 5 -7 years ago and think I looked a lot fresher then. Being in a relationship has maybe aged me!! I was single for so long, before I only had to suit myself, eat what I want, sleep when I want etc. Always thought of my sister as the beauty in the family, and at 46 she has totally maintained her looks and physique, but it seems like so much work all the time (Pilates, weights, not eating much) and I have… Read more »

But I am taking a break from being rilly good-looking, I don’t give a fuq if it sounds arrogant (the moon is in scorpio) but I was super hot (probs NOT quite The Leo Socialite supermodel hot I am thinking 🙂 ). There were aspects of that kind of attention that really stuffed up my life here and there. I love my life today and I believe part of it is that I feel almost no pressure to be a body.

‘Male sense of entitlement over a woman’s body.’ The double edged sword of feminine beauty…Wars have been fought, eg Helen of Troy… Well it’s definitely a thing. There have been times where I put on weight subconsciously as a shield from predatory male attention, especially when one is younger and waaay more vulnerable, it’s so hard to know how to deal with it. Feel so protective of some young girls that I see, they can be so easily exploited. Nearing 50, I feel that maintaining the looks is part of the necessities of daily existence (Mars Virgo) It helps me… Read more »

An astrologer I like always says that a dark moon is the perfect time to do housework, filing, and tidying, Lately I got the Marie Kondo book about the magic of tidying. I’m just not sure what to say about it. It’s a very simple approach, an almost spiritual treatment of our possessions and our home. I’ll show the only good Konmari video, showing how she teaches how to clean a single family apartment. It’s from a Japanese TV program but I think you’ll get the main points. I am thinking of subtitling this clip since It goes through all… Read more »

So I have been feeling overwhelmed that I am not surrounded by the best people I could be at the moment. I dont know how much of it is true and how much of it is paranoia. Some people just give me a subtle bad vibe though theyve never actually done anything wrong. But still there is this thing in the back of my head or wherever that they arent trustworthy, will seek revenge later, etc. If I ousted everyone based on this perception, I would not be around most everybody… tbh. Anyone got any tips for dealing with people… Read more »

What shmo said, plus, just keep it all close to the chest whilst playing the bonhomie. Expose everything, reveal nothing. If you have Scorpio, this is probably easier, even second nature. Be aware of your aura/energetic field. Make sure there are no holes in it. Make sure you are grounded, and most importantly, make sure no one is grounding through you. If you don’t know what I”m talking about, I’m sure there are google searches you can do. Once you have your auric boundaries defined, there is one very neat trick called “Body of Mirrors”.

My pleasure! I forgot to mention- trust your instincts, impeccably. If you are getting this vibe there is a _reason_. And hopefully you have a real friend- outside of this group- with whom you can vent and have real sharing of thoughts and feelings. Very healing and cleaning, even to have just the one.

Maybe you just need to find your tribe? alternatively…(just a suggestion here) when I feel like that it’s usually because I’m isolating myself for some reason..in my experience (I) most people are not Qi vampires and (ii) it’s usually not that hard to identify them..the hard part is evicting them! Maybe you are trying to trust too many people? Really, unqualified trust is something most of us have for a very select few…the general trust in others we encounter (eg that they’ll all stop at their red light when our light turns green) is a little leap of faith we… Read more »

I have a strange conundrum when it comes to friends. I have Chiron in the 11th, which means a lot of my pain and disappointment comes from them. Its played out a lot in the past in totally unexpected ways so Im always on my toes. All kinds of people have betrayed my trust, people I would expect as well as people I would never-in-a-million-years expect, I feel like Ive seen it all. I do know I dont have to hang onto any of them, but my question here is not simply whether someone is not just a good friend… Read more »

Hi Anon, sorry to hear you experience wierd slippery friend-trust- issues. Here are some other thoughts (I def agree on many of the above things too): is there a certain way that these declines in the friendship come about, e.g. change in language/dialogue, hints, patterns, series of events, etc? Consider whether jealousy or envy is an issue for others. you sound like a kind / trusting person. Do you appear to offer something as a human being (anything from looks, money, charisma, sex appeal, lucky) that others begin to feel threatened by if they are not totally secure and chill… Read more »

Also search around for meditations or guided meditations about self-protection, energy fields and so on. i found that one I listen to from time to time was a really good way to totally de-fuse this wierd, keeping-score, kind of qi-vamping (for want of a better word) frenemy situation that I found myself in for years. I also had some good advice from a couple of clairvoyants over the years about that connection which was driving me to distraction.

wow ok now you’ve got me on a roll. this is what i have learnt over the years if this is of use to anyone. True friends: Celebrate your achievements from the smallest to the greatest, congratulate you or greet your good news without hesitation or coolness, appreciate your honesty whether about a fear / concern in the friendship or about a personal matter, treat you gently and respectfully in difficult personal times, apologise unreservedly for misdeeds perceived or otherwise, get a kick out of talking about your mutually glowing futures and awesomeness, give you a boost when you’re down,… Read more »

This Zap session has been insane…so busy…breakthroughs…break ups…the whole world feels like it’s on the edge of it’s seat. I’m buggin. But I feel excited. And I can’t sleep. My lover left me and my heart is broken. In a snap I figured out what was causing my destructive relationship patterns. I think I just beat my years long artist block. In a snap the hesitation was gone. And I finally figured out how to speak up to someone who I had been meaning to confront for a year.. in a snap the fear was gone. It’s bonkers.

Yep yep yep on the breakthroughs AKA!!! my multi Scorp friend also had one today on destructive relationship patterns, so she called me to tell, excited. Her shrink pointed out just what was her trigger, and it all made sense!

I’ve had an artists block breakthrough too, not exactly today, but in the last couple of days, by just keeping going back to the desk. Am drawing properly again, woohoo!!

Well she said my third chakra (communication) felt blocked without me even telling her the nature of our issues. We worked on it and 20 minutes after my session I ran into him! And we were talking about stuff and all… Read more »

It’s funny how some people feel afraid to speak up, isn’t it, and some others do not hesitate to push their agendas out on to whoever they want. Your shrink sounds like a good one to recognise it’s an energy blockage and work with that. And the fact that you ran into him straight after says to me that you would definitely have some energy cords attached to him. The Leo has been afraid to speak up about issues of his own worth until now. He’s Totally ready to release, and that is what this whole protracted, painful situation has… Read more »

Well, I can’t speak for anyone else (<—not pun) but my difficulty speaking about tough issues (like, you know, my feelings) stems directly from my mom being an over communicator/verbal abuser who on the same token wouldn't listen to a god damn thing I say. Kinda makes you feel like it's all pointless. Tracing these things back made me realize that not everyone is a narcissistic psycho who's going to make my life hell for speaking up! Perhaps Leo has similar background he can lightly peruse…and even if he doesn't have all the tools you mentioned, he does have you,… Read more »
