Dark Moon Symptoms

Filed in MOON SIGNS

Mean Girls

Dark Moon carb cravings are notorious. You experience a fresh fascination with foods that numb, as opposed to augmenting your awareness. Solution: Devise something comforting but also nourishing.  It’s the classic Dark Moon symptom and easily combatted by planning ahead. If you’re caught without a meal planned at this time, you’ll default to a food you favored in your childhood. But would your inner child/low Yin energies really be nourished by – say – lollies or starch?

Michal Karcz

Dark Moon Symptom Number 2: The desire to be alone. Not just alone-in-the-next-room but ALONE-alone. Most people annoy the fuq out of you at the moment. It’s not personal but you’re processing a lot of stuff and having to make conversation, be seductive or listen to an anecdote (AGAIN) that seems to be stuck on some auto-repeat loop. Solution: Don your hoodie and stride out for a long, long walk.

Cookie Monster Mercury Retro

Dark Moon Symptom Number 3: Frustration with technology, laundry, crap not working, non-stop to-do lists, stuff that never seems DONE. Solution: Tidy up. There is a reason why a solid declutter is the Gold Standard of Dark Moon protocols and that is that it works. FAST. Find a drawer, a cupboard, a something and clear it. ALWAYS some lucid insight or release comes of this.

Franklin Booth

Dark Moon Symptom Number 4: Romantic yearnings that could just tip over into Love Zombie territory. Retro Venus on a Dark Moon, you understand. With Mercury opposite Neptune for extra psychic resonance. Solution: Keep it HAUTE. You don’t want to go lusting after ghosts and you don’t want to undermine the pure raw DIGNITY that is Venus + Mars in Leo.

I am preparing myself for Venus´ inferior conjunction on Saturday. Couple that with the darkness of the Moon, if really feels like the descent. I am carrying bread with me to the other side 🙂

did you say bread?
mmmmmm 🙂

Invicta, I have a natal Kataka Moon. “Crab Moon carbophilia” like Mystic once wrote 🙂

InvictaMM Member

IC it is funny I was laughing about me & the bread thing today and just shrugged it off in the end with my latest astro “get out of jail free” card WELL MY PROGRESSED MOON IS IN KATAKA.
Then miss virgopenny goes hey you need to stop using astrology as an excuse for everything you do… but thanks for the validation. the garlic bread can stay, we’re in love. It’s crust is on my mouth, natally and in my stomach by progression 🙂

What NOT to do on a dark moon.
Ignore all MM’s advice about handling Venus RX and this dark moon but post prolifically and promiscuously on her blog anyway.
Drink wine and watch a seriously creepy true crime documentary about serial killers.
That’s about it really.

I watched the Jefrey Dahmer files on a dark moon with a glass of red wine… lol
could anything be stupider.
He mailed me at 2am to ask if I was ok, which was weird. Said he felt like I was scared. Yeah i know!
It took me about 9 hours to fess up that I’d watched this stupid show and now couldn’t even close my eyes I was so creeped out and yes, he then sent me the psycho killer song…run run awaaaaay ah ah ah yayayayayaya! c’est qu’ se?

In hindsight it is amusing and embarrassing that I would externalise all my fear and make it about someone else and even blame them for infecting me with “thought pathogens!”

this is a comically weird dark moon. like i’m surprised at how much angst and attachment i have that sounds like a 14 year old girl who met her favorite celebrity at a comicon and he hooked up with her mother level drama. now this is a way to watch the 12th house in leo with no planets in it. watch it from aquarius 7 on natal jupiter, that way he can be like the big screen i can watch close ups from over in virgo. plus its right in the middle to see the new moon and venus cazimi… Read more »

this is epic astro failing happening

I had a terrible dark moon. Got over-emotional due to some developments at work. I’m still a contractor, with the promise of going full time, but they keep delaying it (can I blame Neptune opposition for this?). Then I found out the salary they want to pay me is way lower than I was hoping. Had an emotional, stress filled night trying to figure out if I should negotiate, leave, complain, put up with it…today I calmed way down about it, but anyway I was tired all day from the lack of sleep. I feel tired and wired at the… Read more »

I don’t want to get too spooky but I realised something tres creepy tonight. something connected to the “curse” I was put under ages ago a doctor and naturopath picked up on it and it didn’t really make sense at the time because I didn’t have all the info. I know now who, what and maybe not why exactly but who and what is enough. I guess the why is a combo of karma, fate and what I was open to at the time. But yeah, it was FF and all the psychic pathogens he picks up in his dark… Read more »

R(aqua/tauri)
R(aqua/tauri)

This article is so dead on. I have Saturn in the 7th and I used to think it meant I’m a “rules girl” (laugh at me, please) but while I am most fulfilled when I’m in long, monogamous relationships it is more my packed 8th house making me both possessive and intense in all ways, wanting depth not wanting to share because in my mind that means less and I always want MORE. I think Saturn in the 7th means you’re in for lessons through relationships. I’ve met some “once upon a dream” people already and I know I’ll meet… Read more »

InvictaMM Member
Invicta

Hm Interesting Sphinx Yeah, I think I’ve definitely been unconsciously working out my emotional issues by using this guy as a projection. I know I bang on about the progressed moon constantly but that is because I’m so aware of the changes in me as it progresses. so my 7th house is empty buy it is primarily Kataka and the moon progressing though it did make me feel all those longings, the “urge to merge” and mommy stuff and at the time I swore it was about him. He does have very Kataka energy and Mars in Kataka natally so… Read more »

oh and I just remembered. More nails in the coffin of this thread..But his Venus is on my Chiron and my Uranus is on his Chiron and Mars so we kind of feel each other deeply. Some of it is projection but it is also just what it is.

YES, ha ha ha. I really only clean the house once a month—on the dark moon. I dust using a wet rag, and in that dusting water goes rock salt, fresh mugwort and other witchy herbs from my garden….and then it’s smudging time! Makes cleaning that much more fun!! 🙂

This upcoming new moon is potent. I cleared out my closets and cleared my papers. I want to wrap up my bills and my 90 year old mom’s bills tonight. I have the house cleaned and tomorrow I plan to energy clear the house with smudging. I didn’t want to do it during the void moon. It’s my first clearing. My home and family is very harmonious…but our money is tight. (My husband and I are both cap rising but he has Gem sun and I’m Libra sun. Neptune is transiting our 2nd houses. He is Cap asc 13 and… Read more »

Ahh makes sense now..Dark moon. Everything on the list. EVERYTHING .even gorging on chocs (foods that numb.. for me).
Started feeling very tired from yesterday, very emotionally exhausted too.
Something is brewing and will go “pop” but the pot is still stirring yet.
I’m abusing the tarot and oracle because otherwise there’s only e-stalking left. Which is what I’ve kept under much control thank goodness.

Trying to keep it Haute yes but just feeling I’m missing the mark by an inch. Possibly because there’s something going on I can’t figure out.

I’ve just noticed that the woman asking “is butter a carb?” is holding a chunk of white bread. Oh that’s funny. I weighed myself in the gym today, only because the scale was there and I never weigh myself. otherwise. I never keep a scale at home because I think those numbers can mess with your head. I’ve gained 8kgs since the last time I weighed myself but I don’t really mind. I was expecting that. I feel fine about it. Yes I’m rounder and softer than usual and even sporting some womanly cellulite on my now much larger thighs.… Read more »

Rats. In my building. Water rats. Explains the weird scratching & scuttling sounds I’ve been hearing when I’m in bed and why my cables and electrical chords are frayed. I live by the river, meteres away from it and there is a restaurant below and either side of my balcony, all new developments, even this building is quite new so it’s not “scary infestation” as much as A SIGN. I am not rat phobic at all. I’m a water rat myself in Chinese astrology so I’m really ok with it but it does give me something to leverage the argument… Read more »

She immediately made a joke about a crossbow – my name sake when I emailed her. And said she was a terrible guitar player but was quite good at banging on a pot with a spoon, a noble art she’s been perfecting since age 4. Obviously I liked that too! She’s into hunting McQueen and Stella McArtney in 2nd hand shops and is into running and hiking but “has never been to the Peak District.” I loved the randomness of that and wrote back mainly because she sounded like such a cool person.

Yesterday was tough, migraine and neurological symptoms related to a bad registration several days ago on this TMJ bite I’m using leading up to braces. Felt like an atom bomb in my brainstem. I was stretching and feeling the range of motion of my crunchy mandible/TMJs when POP. My right TMJ was dislocated probably for several days and held that way by the bite. No wonder I felt crazy vertigo!!!

No money yet but fortunately I’ve had no cavities so I’m hoping all stays quiet till I am more liquid. I’ve been getting headaches too but I think it’s just being indoors and not moving my body.

Doing it hard this dark moon. I wish I could get my sleeping under control. I had a really vivid dream last night about the Neptunian Cap. Haven’t dreamt about him in ages. I went to his house, his family was there. I’d gone there to buy apples. Someone was cutting down a very old tree that was growing through his bookshelves. I asked his wife for the apples, I said I didn’t have money but I would go home and get some. She was ok with it. He was in the background, it was if he didn’t even see… Read more »

So glad to see this post. Spot on MM. People and me not mixing well at the moment. Chips and chocolate are enticing. Searching the heavens and waiting to be ‘rescued’ – from what and by who I don’t know, just a prevailing feeling of peril. (Or a perilous feeling of prevailing?) In bed by 9. But, saw a sunset from my office window that looked like a miracle and said ‘thank you’ out loud. Tomorrow will be ok. Sleep.

All weekend I cleaned out my closets, starting with papers, moving onto paint, cleaning products, you name it. Felt so good.

Yesterday, I found out my brother killed himself. He has children and grandchildren. Some drama over a girl. I am in shock as I am sure his kids are. He was a great Dad and grandfather. This is my preview of eclipse season?

Today, I am supposed to pitch a concept for a high-profile project at work. I have no idea what to expect from myself.

Thanks, everybody. The astro is so intense. Quite the Saturn-Third-House-TranSHIT. Shock got me through the morning. I presented at work and got endlessly interrupted by a woman who talked over me and later told me in the bathroom that she thought I was rude. I almost didn’t want to leave because I knew this was waiting for me. Drama with the family. My whole family is insane. Seriously. My brother murdered himself for his false beliefs.

Please maybe try not to “hold” – might be more challenging for you, the heart is the emperor – we learn to let go, allow what must pass through (my instructor teaches us movements, in 8 pieces of silk, for the heart), meditate if you can, sorry again. Truly sad, but your life is a blessing too!

I think she means we can help by holding the SPACE secure and strong, so she can PASS through this time with support aquasr! Not that she is holding onto the situation, but cushioning her consciousness while she does the work.

Food: been changing my diet a lot lately. Drinking more protein juice. Started a warm lemon tea morning drink challenge for 30 days. It’s a nice change. New Keruig machine is in da house so that is the next drink I have after the lemon. Stopped an expense of getting coffee from the locals every day at $4 cup. Alone: never a problem for me. Not a strong desire this week. But I have been studying and me keeping silent in my apartment alone at 3 days a stretch has worked. No shower those days so being alone is a… Read more »

I thought I’d gotten to the fun stage of unpacking — the decorations and the altar stuff — but have been overwhelmed by books for the last few hours. Never enough bookshelves.
The kids are in bed though, I got a ton of admin done today, I’m snacking on veggies and hummus and blackberries that my very cute cupcake-baker neighbor brought me, and it’s silent. This’ll do pig, this’ll do. 🙂

Dark Kataka Moon in 8th- kid’s debit card hacked and duplicated. Used twice at local box store. Quips he: I hope they bought some dope shite with my card. Thank you Mercury opp Neptune. Had to insist they close account- not just issue new card. Taking no chances. Bank manager practically bored by processing claim, new account etc. This on heels of new accounts for us due to briefcase thefts. Sigh. Retired early- weird dreams too- and up early. Caught glimpse of Perseid falling stars. And spotty wifi, haywire phones and network chez work, no notice of a cancelled meeting… Read more »

1- Foods- I ate home-cooked fried chicken with no veg last night, 2 – Alone – I am not your normal reclusive Kat; but I am today 3 – Lists – So much to do and I cant get it done efficiently 4- Yearnings – despite all I have read and all the ‘thinking I’m doing good’, on being a LZ, I’ve been hit with an Exocet, again. I keep believing kinetic broken promises. Maybe for some Crabs Venus RX is not about love but when Venus turns retro on your tight Mars/Pluto conjunct IT IS for me. I have… Read more »

Hmm – I have a Venus/Pluto conjunct (Venus in Leo, Pluto in Virgo) with Venus going back and forth on it – and Jupe as well – amplifying every feeling x 100. It is mental. I’m not a LZ so much, as just being haunted by memories – like really strong memories. Dreaming them too. So hard to shake off. Normally i can change the vibe by putting on headphones and going for a bolt – but my back is playing up. Also found out that i’ve got natal Venus,Vesta and Regulus all at 29 Leo. So…not entirely sure what… Read more »

My Venus is a looser, more separating orb to my M/P conjunct. Venus turned her heels right on the midpoint of that conjunct at the same time Neptune is exact opposing my Venus. Ugh fuqn ugh!!! The sky sure is teaching me heaps. Lucky Jupiter is lucky he and others are going Virgo. I am looking for that set of waves. You’d have a lot of rocks there as you are only a coupla weeks older than me (l think?) M/P/V conjunct and a lot of asteroids make up my 2H Virgo Stelium with Uran 2° before 2H cusp tho… Read more »

Crikey – yes – i keep forgetting about Neptune opp Venus! faaark ….. (mine is not so tight) -no wonder your going nutso.
All my rocks are in Leo – i only have Pluto in Virgo.
Well, enjoy Jupe – surf those waves, Pf. He has certainly rocked my boat for the best – if a bit INTENSE – for the past two years – but it was much needed tho.

Hey that is quite remarkable, a gift for good use, you could shape that quite purposefully (I am trying, regulus conjunct Jupiter and ascendant sextile moon 10th), I submit proposal for post grad research, still investigating. I hope you find something special with all that!

I agree. Yet no good troubles; we eat very well here, with clockwork precision, but hard with the Neptune opposition to Venus, nothing disguises how I truly feel. Everyone needs protection, some sort of shelter, so if isn’t forthcoming you could employ another strategy – I took up internal martial arts because I have to be strong for my child and partner, as well as myself. The theme of Saturn prevails; unsure how much delusion I suffer from, or if just an attempt at escape. I am fine with getting all done, doing what is expected of me but I… Read more »

Just baked biscuits with a butter, golden syrup, oats, coconut and raisins this second! So yummy food, check. Threw in some xylitol and diatamaceous earth in too, so technically now a health food. Also, I have given in and been taking some anti inflammatories with codeine for two nights, morphine, yay! *sigh* My goddess, there is nothing like a good night’s pain-free sleep. Finally, I have had help from a friend in regards to some stressful funding applications and feel on top of it. Like I learned a new language of Legalese and I am suddenly fluent and I have… Read more »

Had to tell my son’s psych about when I knew he had autism. I told her about my dream during pregnancy where I knew he would have it.
Been thinking about that dream a lot and I just finally found when I posted it on the blog now. 😉 Thanking Ms. & Scorpalicious Robot for their kind replies, best wishes across the ethernet.

Ah, no wonder I was feeling sorry for myself and under appreciated yesterday for no good reason. There’s so much to do at work this week, and I’m PMS’ing, and my diet got off track this week. Luckily, Venus in Leo has brought me a new hairdresser and a good haircut, after two years of searching since my move here, so that helps to counterbalance things. 🙂 I have Venus in Libra in the fifth house, and I always forget that it has those Leo undertones from the fifth house placement and that I need to honor those impulses. Anyway,… Read more »

Yes. Want to be alone and get shit done. I may have broken up with the beau yesterday in an email rant over missing my b-day. Twice in a row since 2103! When pressed he rattled off the date exactly. That made it all the more upsetting. Not wasting any more time on a man-child who drains my awesome. Got too much going on! ‘Bye bye
I’d rather be alone.

you go gf. I know the man-child type too well. I’ve told him to his face he is bringing me down.Normally i am a polite marsin Libra – no more. I give a fuq time is over for me. i have to keep pushing my awesome up and up like a heavy barbell you see in cartoons. Will not let thoughts of him push me down.

Ohh I’m totally feeling this at the moment! I’m a Sagi with a Capricorn Moon and Pisces rising. This morning I got at my partner for no plausible reason – I just snapped. Computer’s been screwy at work all day, people have been bitchy and I just want to do nothing but run home and lie in bed with a book and have NOBODY around me!!!

I just want to eat chocolate and scream. La Luna has PMS.

So I clean and conquer while having fabulous hair. Seriously, if you haven’t tried a curling wand, GO get one. Mermaid waves for days.

I’m a moody Crab rising tonight…..very tired, going to bed too late. Very irritable, but also warranted as have had total upheaval of household in last two weeks. Of course I find that unsettling being the bit of home-base/safe-base Crab rising person that I am. I’ve got that Lilith in Libra transiting my 4th as well, and have torn ex-housemate and soon to be ex-housemate a new a-hole in last two weeks, too…….exhausting…. It will all be better soon…… My comfort food today was yogurt, of all things. Not unhealthy but I almost never eat yogurt because I don’t digest… Read more »

Some astrologers say that Jupiter in your Ascendant sign expands your waistline. I feel fat, even though I’m the same weight I was when Jupiter entered Leo.

So I decided that when Jupiter hit Virgo, I would change my diet completely. I ordered a week’s worth of Soylent 1.5, I’m drinking some right now. It is claimed to be nutritionally complete, you can eat nothing else if you can choke down 1.5 liters of the liquid per day. I am not sure I will survive the week. Let’s call it “discomfort food.”

‘Discomfort food” – Love it Charles !
Best of luck hon, you are Toro if i remember correctly ? would some wheat grass on the window sills help ? (serious, not taking the proverbial !).
I was hoping Jupes into Virgo would knock my eating habits back into gear … winter and study had me grazing an awful lot…water crackers now off the shopping list …(as i was always looking for something decadent to put on top). Good luck on the juice Charles. x

InvictaMM Member

Discomfort food indeed!
I also bought some soylent and then promptly lost interest in it. It is as dull a way of life as it gets no, but nutritionally complete?
Jupiter in Leo made me buy and insane amount of sparkly gold stilettos and other ridiculous impractical shoes I have never worn. All hail Jupiter into Virgo!

Charles

Yeah, I’m a Taurus, that’s part of the irony. Food is one of the luxuries that Taurus appreciates. I’m a great cook, but I never bother cooking unless I have guests.

Some people fiddle with flavoring their liquid Soylent. It used to have a vanilla flavor plus some Splenda but they took it out. I put it back in. Some people like adding flavor extracts, like lemon or apple. Hey I remember making those flavors in chemistry class, back in high school! Benzyl acetate, yum.

InvictaMM Member
Invicta

Hey liquid Soylent actually sounds alright for a Virgo Sag like me but it must be sheer hell for a Taurus! I mentioned I’d bought some to a Taurus friend of mine and got the FOOD IS FOOD. WE DONT LIVE IN THE JETSONS lecture. Not sure if the liquid form is available in London. Banana is the most tolerable imo but I’ve also been adding Splenda! Can you manage to just consume Soylent tho? I find it just adds to my caloric intake. I can imagine not eating. That was my lofty intention when I bought it but food… Read more »

Freudian slip. Meant to say “can NOT imagine not eating”
I’m a bit spaced out from the gym. I just did 30 minutes of light cardio. Got rid of my headache completely.

InvictaMM Member
Invicta

I can IMAGINE not eating but no way could I actually not eat in reality. Ho hum. I have definitely gained weight and overspent this Jupiter in Leo. It must be a Jupiter rising thing. I gain weight so easily but I also loose it quite easily too.

Soylent sounds fucking hideous and I propose that it is the opposite of Jupiter in Virgo.
Signed, Jupiter in Taurus.

Isn’t soylent green made out of people? Why did they name it after that?

Dude, I eat raw milk, red meat, butter… if it’s good quality and you’re not stuffing yourself, you’re good to go. Mmmm, butter.

InvictaMM Member
Invicta

mmmmmm butter. I’m so there ampersand! All of the above! The guy who developed Soylent has a sense of humour tho, which is why he named it that. I chug it as well as eating whatever else I feel like eating. this ranges from frequent scoffing of toasted garlic bread (my current fetish) to yes, red met, seafood, salads, burgers, chips, the odd beer or glass of wine, lemon juice with water and gelatine, coconut water, berry juice, just literally whatever I feel like. I take the soylent because I am tired of obsessing about healthy eating and I want… Read more »

Down with a horrible sore throat/possibly strep, marathon work days, new colleague dripping with condescension and pass-ag millennial remarks at this old boomer person …Saturn at the very, very end of my 6th!

And seeing signs of Venus in Leo everywhere: the discovery of Nefertiti’s tomb, Serena Williams’ amazing photo layout in NY Magazine, fierce, powerful, regal women! (I am, however, a wounded warriorette just focusing on having enough endurance to get through the next few days with grace).

that awkward moment when you discover your exes, even the one you hate but also the ones who’s emails you never respond to are following you on twitter.

On a positive note, since seeing the osteopath/acupuncture dude I’m craving …….salad and green veg. In the style of obeying my impulses I am indulging the cravings and consuming vast amounts of vegetables. Only because I’m craving them 🙂

VenusRulesMM Member

Invicta, thank you! Can you explain osteopathy to me? My doctor’s practice was bought out by Big Hospital and just getting an appointment is now almost impossible. Someone recommended an osteopath to me, but I honestly don’t entirely understand it.

InvictaMM Member
Invicta

Hey Venus Rules Sorry! I’ve just seen this now… I don’t know how to explain osteopathy to you. It is something like massage I suppose but not as generalised and more relating to posture and treating specific problems in how the muscles are holding the bones together. I just know it helps so much. That is my unqualified, unscientific, non medical opinion as a customer tho 🙂 I do find it really helpful as I have an amazing practitioner. I think finding the right person is key as I guess there are different types of osteopathy and osteopaths. I like… Read more »

Basically my perfect spot right now would be sitting on that hill with super warm cape and cookie monsters cookie stash writing my to do list without interruption.

Omg. Totally spot on. Today? My phone has been blowing up with the new guy I’m seeing, two friends who are breaking up and who are trying to get me to “take sides”, my neighbor inviting me to her dog’s birthday party, another friend who wants to hang out and my grandma who just wants to chat. Meanwhile, my freezer busted and there’s puddles of water everywhere. All I craved today was to be alone and eat some of the fabulous chocolate peanut butter mouse cake from an eatery in town; but it appears they have stopped ordering it because… Read more »

Funny you should say that. Kids on hols here and the neighbourhood kids have been at it non-stop, and loudly – right under my practice room – all day – with the smell of weed drifting in. Also annoyed at how many people have made bookings for these couple of days when i just feel like being in that 2nd picture. And my back – every Dark Moon is painful. Plus had a huge fit of rage over the vacuum cleaner – i will never, ever, EVER buy a Dyson ever again ..piece of sh…. plastic screws. PLASTIC SCREWS!!?? WHY??… Read more »
