I’m A Gonna Do Me

Filed in Mars

Versace Daphne Lindsey

Mars is in Leo & it’s time to do you.Β  Do you – do you – do you. This does not rule out genuinely altruistic actions, obviously.

But it does rule out the sort of procrastinating, sticky tendrils into other peeps business type rot we can all deploy at times to avoid doing our own Awesome.

Likewise, if in doubt, think Dignity. If you have to make it a scene, do it with epic hair and remember that Retro-Venus favors being elusive in romance/revisionary in art whilst Mars moving forward in Leo = brazen makeovers, healthy ego fueled strengths andΒ  – again – doing You.

If it’s not aligned with YOUR fuqing vibe, why bother?

Just back from the osteopath. Cannot MOVE! He is an ex ER nurse and uses a combo of acupuncture, osteo and massage combined with some gentle guidance, like “just breathe through it, don’t attach a story or label it, just acknowledge the feelings in your body and be with them.” He warned me I would feel “beaten up” for about a week and that I’d been holding so much tension, so it probably would really hurt as my body tried to fight what he had done. It was a long session that felt as if we were peeling a dangerous… Read more »

And this mars conjuncts my lillith in leo. Marilyn Monroe had a lillith in leo. I just read a very sad story that’s convinced me, she was murdered. (The books is coming out). And how they did it is brutal. Mars in Leo conjunct my uranus in leo trine my sun, mercury and venus with mars continuing to transit my 7th house. I’m going through this period of research with the new world order — totally awakened. I’m appalled to no end. I continue to hope for a breakthrough. I’ve also realized that I’m a role model and leader (I’m… Read more »

As a child I fell for the lovely Marilyn in a big way. I was convinced she was murdered and launched my own investigation in the Kennedy administration, Jimmy Hoffa, and the various inconsistencies surrounding her death. I don’t know why I felt so passionate about it but I was just convinced she was killed and there seemed to be so much compelling evidence to indicate it too. I made a documentary film about it for a school project.

What do y’all think about intercepted signs, or those signs that do not officially rule any houses because of wide-ass influence from the neighboring signs? My Leo/Aquarius axis is not officially represented in the breakdown of which signs rule which houses. Just as far as where they are physically positioned I have 6th house Leo/12th house Aqua. This is also where my north and south nodes are, which form a tight grand cross with my Scorp mercury and Taurus Chiron. I’m just curious as to how this affects my chart (or how I should be working it) during this time… Read more »

I think it matters, yeah! I also have my nodes in intercepted houses and am hopeful that a wise PIAB will bedazzle us with insight.
I just find the energy to be unconscious, hard to process, and surprising. Much more so with the NN house of course.

Mars on MC-Moon sextile Lillith. Think i channeled Scary Crone today – which isn’t a bad thing when having to deal with bureaucrats in confined spaces. Got all forms stamped quick smart – no stupid questions asked. Outta there in 5 mins instead of the usual 2 hr fart-about.

Mars in Leo in my eighth house, along with Venus and Jupiter and the Sun and soon the new moon will conjunct my natal moon. What could possibly go wrong? LOL!

Woke up this morning, realized a bunch of people had been giving me seemingly reasonable yet shit advice and immediately discounted all of it. It was as though own opinion just got sick of the outside input and said “Screw this. Screw them. Do your damn thing.” Definitely has a power edge to it.

Venus in Leo 10th on MC. Pluto/Saturn in Lib Rising on AC. AND my Sun is conjunct Mars.

So.. yea. In a “fuq it, they be muggles, go kick ass” kinda mood.

When Mystic said to look at what was in your chart at 28 degrees (the position of last week’s square) it was bang on my North Node. Years ago I bought a book all about the North Node so dragged it out and had a look. One of the life lessons I’m apparently meant to learn this time around is trusting in myself and not deferring to the opinions/advice etc. When I decided I wanted to design a mentoring program as part of a way to fund ongoing publishing projects my first thought was: I wonder what XYZ thinks about… Read more »

Yep…doing me. Mars will go through my 12th house and then hit my late Leo rising, opposing my Venus-Ceres conjunction in Aqua. I’ve been thinking, my reactions to seemingly small setbacks of late have been really over the top, out of all proportion to the actual problem. I have wondered if I am experiencing some kind of mild PTSD. I always tend towards super-sensitive and anxious anyway, hello half my chart in Pisces, but even for me it’s been bad. I wonder if the chronic stress of the last few years is still running me. Any tips for how to… Read more »

Mars in Leo in the 12th makes me think of physical activity to work through the subconscious. Walk a labyrinth in a beautiful dress. Attend an avant garde theatre production or do some performance art of your own.

Everyday is dress up day, role play! Have you Pisces prominent? Thought this would be very much in synch with this…my daughter’s mid/late degrees Jupiter in Pisces 7th is almost exactly conjunction my Mars conjunction Chiron 7th, synastry wise – her Venus conjunction mercury Taurus are sextile to this, trine to my Venus Capricorn 5th. I feel pretty blessed for this good fortune so far…

Yes! I have a Neptune outfit that’s all greens, blues, and purples with shiny, spangly jewelry and I thought it would be fun to do channel planets or signs more often. In fact, I bought yarn for a friend to crochet me a Neptune shawl, it’s chunky green and blue with sparkles, like it was dredged from the ethereal sea.

I have libra NN in the 12th & Moon conjunct Neptune, btw.

I was reading up on t-squares and found advice to find harmonious aspects to the focal planet. Everything else I read previously said to focus on the opposite house, which balances the t-square. My sun is the focal planet and I have Mars sextile sun which I never paid much attention to. But this is the antidote to my Mars in Gemini scattered energy. I’ve been consciously trying to reign it in. Figuring out what to put my energy towards, and cutting out the rest. Like getting reacquainted with the library rather than ordering books. Giving up completely on crocheting… Read more »

I have Mars in Leo – is this my Mars return? Tips?

davidl
davidl

Yes it is your mars return. It normally takes around 18 months for each mars return so firstly look back to when mars was last in leo and that time may give you a few clues as to where you are at now. The house it lives in is also important as it gives you an idea as to where this mars action will play out and where you can focus your considerable energies.

skarabMM Member

From my experience (i have this in 10th H), it gives one extra oomph and vim in action and words, impatience too. Just be aware of how you say things, as it can be misconstrued as rudeness or bolshiness by others (unless of course you really want to kick ass or shake things up). It depends on your House placement how you want to use this extra charged energy. It’s a bit like reining in an over enthusiastic horse.

But it’s opposite my altruistic Sun in Aquarius! πŸ˜‰ ……no, seriously, I need this. I need to do me, and I’ve been doing me all weekend. Really got quiet and centered with myself and did a sort of mental inventory of my life, mostly focused on work. Mars will transit my 2nd house, so even though it will oppose my Sun, I hope this will help me take action to figuring out and sorting out my absolutely fuq’d financial situation! Also…..dignity. When Venus went retro I actually wrote that down on my dry erase board: Venus retro in Leo =… Read more »

Can I say that to me you never sound self-centred? You always sound considered, thoughtful, insightful and super-honest. It’s always a pleasure to read your posts πŸ™‚

BTW I have the same family-of-origin issue as you describe here… Neptune is conj my IC right at the bottom of my chart.

Aw, thanks Chrysalis! πŸ™‚ Yeah, it’s like a spectre that follows you around, eh, when you have grown up with an alcoholic parent… It has felt so heavy at times, something glommed onto me that isn’t my stuff….. Neptune conjunct IC perfectly indicates that type of situation, yes? Wow… Sorry to hear you’ve experienced this too… I have Pluto conjunct the IC, in Virgo… I do like to live alone and use it as a way to shroud myself from the world. I used to try to do it growing up, too, trying to stay away from my family. Would… Read more »

There are definitely a few of us here with Pluto close to or conjunct the IC. Imho this placement takes an enormous amount of reflection, maturity and analysis to come to a deeper understanding of how that has shaped us. Carving out , truly building, and *Valuing* our place in the world, which no one else in our family of origin was able to offer, I believe is a big part of this

dizzarinaMM Member

Yes to the spectre of the alcoholic parent, and yes to spending all your time in your room leading to a desire to live alone.

I feel like I’m finally breaking out of that shell. Still work to do but, it’s like there’s air finally blowing around in my corners… hard to describe really.

flowerchild

Agreed, Pi! Plus I have Uranus close to Pluto in the 4th, so yes, I am definitely the black sheep of my family! Glad to hear you’re coming out of that shell, DP. Is it like you’re not energetically carrying the parent’s ‘stuff’ so much anymore so you feel freer and lighter and feel safe to be yourself? I’m actually quite social and gregarious, but I recharge at home and don’t like to be disturbed in my home, which why I hate living with housemates, even though I have to right now because it’s so expensive here.

I hear you about recharging at home and introversion stuff. My 12th house moon makes me a bit special needs or special needy when it comes to downtime ALONE. But it can also be a negative pattern for me to isolate especially when I feel scared or low. I forget how innately sociable and gregarious the other parts of me are. Contact with other people frightens me but it is usually just the thing that lifts my spirit and connects me to humanity, thus instantly blowing the cobwebs of gloom away. So much is habitual when we come from dysfunctional… Read more »

Screw the mediocre school that’s giving me the run-around; I have a much better one, that I’ve always wanted to attend but didn’t know had undergrad program, that’s treating me like a human being to apply to last-minute. So much better.
Also, after weekly cohousing communal vegan meal, I want to sleep with ALL my new neighbors. And they’re going to introduce me to the anarchist collective down the block this week. Fierce!!

I am so curious about what you are doing in my neck of the woods. πŸ˜€ I don’t know your career path but I’ve been longingly eyeing CIIS somatic psych program as completing my second BS seems ever more impossible and held up by bureaucracy.

CIIS is where I’m applying!! SFSU is the previous school, which, honestly I’d swallowed my pride to attend (top ten national liberal arts college to a second-tier state school? Ego was horrified) I just want to get my BA done, after 6 years, and I have too many credits for a UC transfer. But the level of bureaucratic nonsense is so high and apparently the norm there.

I think the math and science background I’m having to do for this other degree would make that project not just an idea but something that could be applied in the world… Read more »

Your project sounds amazing! I can’t wait to read your thesis and utilize its revolutionary implications. πŸ™‚
Yes, no hurry for any of this. I find myself a fan of the stay-in-school-forever-until-the-student-loan-bubble-pops model. Educating the mind, not simply getting pieces of paper, is what it’s all about. Why choose only one? Why not Zoidberg? πŸ˜‰
The bureaucracy thing is such a nightmare. A recent prof (it affects them almost as much, I think) described it as “butts in seats, regardless of the cost to lives.” Shocking, really. May you find some ease! Xxxxx

Hey, glad the school thing worked out! I think the prayer to the universe is always “give me this, or something better” and you got something way better!

Leo is my 2nd house with natal Uranus there. It’s been loosely trining transiting Uranus now in conjunction to my sun in Aries 10th. My 2nd house has been feeling this for months. Everything is working out but in the most surprising of ways. Basically a series of seemingly unfortunate events to the families financial position ( a super storm that severely damaged our house, a new car being virtually written off, a major client off the books, all my proposals met with firm No’s, Saturn opposing my moon etc etc) has led to a regime that at this point… Read more »

I’m about to put myself and a new art-commerce income generator ‘out there’ and it’s slightly terrifying. Reading a book on business synchronicity and knowing I have to let go of the low self confidence bred by the last three years of depression and brazenly go forth.

No one will want to be mentored by someone riddled with self doubt!!

I know I can do it. And those close to me know I can. Now I need to just do it
