Pluto Yourself Together

Gone With The Wind

First there was that Eclipse at the end of the Zodiac (thank you March 20) and then a lengthy Mercury/Mars in Gemini bit of business.  The combination of these influences threw many of us into a vortex of crap from which we are just now emerging.

But the psychological findings?  Gold.  So today’s intensity is bought to us by the Sun in opposition to Pluto – it is a good moment to reaffirm your resolve and get set for the maelstrom that is July. Not necessarily for people personally but the vibe IS volatile, as noted in the July horoscopes.

Or, you know, as you can see from Greece, the Shanghai stock markets and all. As i have said before, Neptune is a bubble and Saturn can be a prick. They begin their first exact aspect together later this year. But first, Mars opposite Pluto – fragile structures and relationships are crumbling.

Then Jupiter square Saturn – Jupiter wants to be fabulous, creative and amazing – Saturn in late Scorpio (trine the degree of that super Eclipse in March) says dredge up the turgid dirt in your psyche first.

Yes, it is time to Pluto yourself together.

I am including myself in that – i have had a few months where basically i burned out; having to move three times due to other people messing up, a melanoma incident, a death in my circle under strange circumstances, a dispute with a vile retail firm that turned nasty, having to get rid of my previous development team due to multiple f-ups (an expensive exercise), trust betrayed, some crap too dark to even talk about, adrenal fatigue and more – i am not going to go on about it as it is time to Pluto myself together but suffice to say it was hell and at one point i contemplated shutting the whole site down, it was so difficult.

Honestly i was one more “Dear Mystic, I know you are busy but please cast your eye over my chart and tell me x, y or z” email away from just killing it.  I was literally working 70 hour weeks to make it all happen and 200 “please give me free advice when you have a minute” emails a week was just too much. I don’t think people realize that a site like this takes time and money to maintain, if i answered every “give me advice when you have a minute question” it would be a 50 hour a week task in itself.

But i just had my first day off of the year, I am going to take Sundays off from now on AND got my eating back on track with the (amazing) 22 Day Revolution Book.

Also, the upheaval that nearly led to this site going under HAS resulted in a better, more stable and supportive new team so reap benefits down the line. If you think about it, it fits the astrology completely.

The psychological colonic effects of Saturn in Scorpio are just beginning, Mars opposite Pluto and square Uranus is drastic astro – an after zap and we all need to keep our Qi super high heading into this phase. I have learned the hard way i am not some “exception” to the rules, that my adrenals are human and that i need to fence off time to regenerate.

So join me in the Pluto Yourself Together challenge – we stay healthy, we process and integrate past crap without dwelling on it and get our Mars on in a really cool style.  The times turn weird – we turn pro.*

* Hunter S Thompson – When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.  (He was Sun-Pluto conjunct in Cancer, Mars, Lilith in Scorpio fyi)

I don’t know why but this morning during my routine to get ready for work I thought about you Mystic, and how much work you must do in order to run this site. Im currently helping shutting down a long standing restaurant and the flood of calls and emails alone is maddening. I can’t imagine having that 24/7. How you manage to do it I can’t even fathom. You truly are a wonder and I appreciate you every day!!! Thank you!!!

Hey MM,
I totally get the crap you’ve ben going through and the audacity and cheek of some people is beyond belief. Clearly, some mugged no nothing of boundaries; however, the recent bombardment of crap has taught many of us to ensure our boundaries are sure up and plans for progress clearer than ever.

Seize the day is an understatement.

I totally, love your site and the thought of its loss is a devastating concept.

May your inner Hermit guide and rest you well.

Love your work and stay warm over the coming days. 🙂

I can also relate to the idea of Muggles bothering one to do stuff for them for free. I also keep a page that I am wondering if it has run its course or not but I think it’s more about choosing collaborations that really support you and that where I want to be headed.

Hi Mystic Apologies for having been one of those emailing freaks, I just wasn’t thinking. I know how death by a thousand cuts (or emails) can lead to adrenal fatigue. Been struggling with this myself, had a total physical and mental breakdown this year. Since you’re a veggie I just wanted to pass on something that made me get my mojo back recently. An iron supplement called Spatone that is iron-rich spring water in a sachet. Because it’s water not pills the iron is absorbed 40% more effectively. Within 2/3 days of taking it I felt much better (the time… Read more »

Does anyone else notice patterns in the sky echoed in relationship synastry? And are relationships with strong aspects, for example Mars Opp Pluto, in relationships activated in any way by the same alignments in the sky?

I chuckled as within a day of reading this post, suddenly NASA looses contact with the Pluto Probe!
Sychronicity to the max for me! However, all is back online for NASA, and for the rest of us ‘in the know’ because of Mystic’s amazing stamina and love – we can all (NASA included) Pluto ourselves back together.
How much do we love Mystic?

You’ve mentioned the stuff with the move but by how flawlessly the blog has been maintained I would never suspect life was that crazy for you! Which is probably exactly WHY it was so crazy…because you dealt with all that AND kept everything going at the rate and quality it always has been. Heartbreaking to me that you considered shutting the site down. 🙁 I’m sorry it got that hard. I have some Pluto phoenixing to attend to myself. The usual lineup: health, money, career. But I’m done with the research and the grind stage. Have my plan, done my… Read more »

Infinite thanks to you, dear Mystic for your intrepid fortitude in enduring all you’ve described, while still providing life-sustaining wisdom for us all. You bravely persevered on our behalf.
We are all blessed and privileged to be the recipients of your extraordinary brilliance. It’s wonderful to know you’ll now be allowing yourself much needed time for the vital refreshment of mind-body-soul. As to the interlopers who’ve grossly presumed entitlement and unfettered access to your sacred time and abilities, the drawbridge has been thusly withdrawn. Brava! Thank you Mystic. You are magic and you are loved.

Self Care! Everyone needs it, MM! I’m So glad you shared with us what has been going on for you. It can help reduce the stress to get it out in the open and let people know what’s really happening. It can be a relief to say what’s real, and not feel obligated to say ‘I’m FINE’. I’ve started taking Maca to deal with stress, it’s an adaptogen. You’re definitely not alone.

That’s crazy about those emails. Especially when you’ve set this whole site up to get people through their weird moments of doubt and anxiety without emailing the nearest person who doesn’t care… what is the oracle or the tarot for? There are even two choices!

Anyway, thanks for running it all. I think you’re doing a great job.

Mystic, I feel your pain for that trough of merde. When you love what you do it’s tough to set those boundaries. I’m in artist management and find my life sucked into a vortex of clawing neediness sometimes but have somehow managed to allow Pluto to pounce on the moment I go to self-destruct point.. it’s super tough but I’m strategising my way through with your wise counsel.

hmm, well the late March eclipse was the week that an invitation arrived to the place I am sitting in right now. And the invitation itself was a result of an action I took some time around the middle of 2014 (exact date not recalled). And I would not have taken that action unless I had embarked on a particular course of study starting mid 2011 (mid Zap, I guess), which itself would not have happened if my earlier ‘career’ and I had decided to take a break from each other in 2010. And I would probably not be in… Read more »

Yes, ‘explaining oneself’ can be so……………………………………………………………………………………………… ………….

pointless.

I am doing some (art) work about death, loss and transformation right now. How emotional work is much like physical work. It is labour. (this is not news to anyone who experiences deep demanding feelings, of course)
And diluting the experience by talking about it, I understand this. Some things are simply not made for that.

I just did the Oracle using the “Which aspect of my chart should I be looking at” option. It gave me “Mars–healthy assertive support.” This is why your site is so amazing: my morning writing practice was all about Mars. Mars is moving through my 8th house, following the Sun. They both just “raked” over my natal moon. I kept asking as I wrote–what is a good form of Mars energy–because I’m not looking for battle or testosterone overloads–I don’t want to start a war in this zone. How do I use this energy for good, for me and others.… Read more »

Adrenal support could come from my favorite herb, holy basil! It is wonderful and does not drug you in to as stupor. Also enough protein would be helpful because when we have too much to do, we for get to eat protein and reach for a bacon cheddar scone..which I have just consumed with my latte..oh man!
I have to be careful for the rest of the day over this but I forgive myself and will do better from here on.
I will take the Holy Basil and also some probiotics…
ashwaganda and rhodiola are aslo great before a work out.
