Back In Time For the Eclipse

Big Moon

I met a Voice Therapist on holiday, and he had fascinating astrology. Blind since birth, he developed hearing and intuition skills that seem supernatural.

When I first heard what Tim Noonan did professionally, I was like “oh-right-so-elocution?’ But no! He was born blind in – as he puts it – a sighted world. He can deduce emotions, nuances, and deeply personal back-stories from simply your voice in a casual conversation. It’s not quite psychic as extremely perceptive.

He is Aries Sun/Venus with Moon in Scorpio. Think charisma central + spooky instincts.  BUT he also has Mercury Retrograde, Eris-Persephone and Psyche in Aries conjunct his Aries Sun. They are all Quincunx – if you want to get fancy about this – Uranus/Pluto in Virgo. The circumstances he was dealt were beyond daunting but he has transformed them into some sort of a super-power.

 “The voice is the most intimate signature of individuality… unlike any sound, the human voice carries the force, the light and shadow of consciousness within it.” John O’Donohue

The voice, says Noonan, is basically the only sound therapy you need. It’s a vastly under-utilized instrument for resonating yourself with various desirable frequencies.

What do you think? Next time I am up for some self-development, I’m thinking this and clearly, I have found my voice therapist. How’s that for some Full Moon Eclipse thought fodder?

Oh, Ehm. Eff. Gee! Ladies & Gentlemen, I submit to you further evidence of why this post is so spot the fuq on: Speaking of “voice” and the power of it, guess who just joined Twitter (like every good little Gemini Sun/Mars/Mercury/Rising, LOL)? EDWARD SNOWDEN! Highlights from his Twitter feed: “Can you hear me now?” and (drumroll pleas…. tah-dah!) “Hero, traitor — I’m just a citizen with a voice.” Yup, there’s that word again…! Look at that, Tr. JUPITER & Neptune T-squaring his Natal Mercury while Tr. Mercury Rx trines it. Tr. Pluto is also stationed in a loose quincunx… Read more »

Welcome back, MM!

The Eclipse was on my Mothers birthday, we decided to go see Grace Jones in concert. Grace came out as a High VooDoo Witch Doctor looking Priestess in her Harring body paint, right under the blood moon eclipse! She is a GODDESS!

Seems the voice theme is strong atm. Was reflecting on the crucial talks between China’s leader and US’ s leader. The polarities of these two most significant economic powers can’t be overstated but I was reminded of a more human organisational/civilization polarity this eve and it is around the voice and voices of people. Was hearing the author of All Under Heaven-China’s Dreams of Order speak about the particular current (last 30 yrs) in China and the implications that has in terms of inflexibility and could result in collapse from within. The centralising of authority reduces the upward feedback of… Read more »

Welcome back doll, glad you had a major regenerative holiday 🙂

voice coach sounds amazing.

I was experimenting with voice work before I left but now I live in a non english speaking country I have dropped it, but def think there is a lot in what he says. But that could be mercury retro in scorpio gem rising talking

welcome back!!!!
eclipse was excellent. chelsea wolfe show, giant fetish street fair, cohousing sukkot celebration, and we all watched the moon rise as it eclipsed. it’s been such and intense and overwhelming time that i am beyond grateful for moments of peace, wherever they happen. <3

Sukkot is a time of rememberance. Like the time my 3 year old climbed the stairs next to a sukka that we had been invited to by a friendly religious family. As we dined in the sukka he left the table and climbed the outside stairs. Once he was on the landing he looked down and waved to us all, we waved back, he then dropped his pants and pissed on us all from a great height. Took us a while to actually compute that this was happening. All of our family were horrified at this outrageous and highly unusual… Read more »

What a sweet story! The childhood joy and abandon heals all. 🙂
There was a cool moment in ours — we were honoring ancestors, and my neighbor called in her grandfather. No sooner had she said his name than her 1 year-old, who had been running wild and joyful outside the sukka, poked his head through and said “HIHIHI!!” 🙂 Call them and they will come. 🙂

The notion of the voice being the only necessary form of sound therapy is interesting to me. I’m presently working towards a Masters and eventual PhD (I hope) in Music Therapy, and whilst I wish to focus my research primarily on the intentional use of instrumental/psycho-acoustical techniques, I want to work with someone to take on the vocal/mercurial part of the immersive surround sound experience that I have conceptualised. I’m not so sure of the voice being the only form of sound therapy necessary, but it’s certainly one with tremendous potential, and I’m looking forward to seeing what is possible… Read more »

This eclipse/full moon was THE MOST intense amazing thing everrrr and it was astro wot got me through it.

Welcome back Mystic. The voice: it wasn’t until I had a child – my daughter is a triple scorpio born in 2000 to a quad scorpio mother, what a combo – that I recognized how a voice has its own DNA. That said, no one can tell us apart on the phone. While a voice is indeed unique it is also replicated in our offspring. A beautiful thing indeed to hear yourself in your child. Vain? No. A miracle.

This eclipse has been way too intense for me. My leo man had a freak out about his life (got an amazing job offer and is scared he’s not up to it) and has completely disappeared- prior to disappearing he suddenly told me he wasn’t sure he could be in a relationship right now. He’s gone from being with me nonstop to no contact for 42 hours. I’m Scorpio sun/libra rising/Pisces moon and totally losing my mind. I thought this was the man I was going to marry and now this. He did this once before, at the beginning of… Read more »

Welcome back!

Apparently, this full moon is a super full moon- people are calling it the Blood Moon, as it is in Aries. The last super full moon was 33 years ago, and interestingly enough, it coincides with one of my culture’s most significant holidays, Chu-sok, a celebration of the fall and harvest. I wonder what changes this will bring.

Welcome back, gorgeous Mystic! So pleased you got the rest and rejuvenation you needed.

Eclipses…hmm. I dunno. Made all the usual earnest declarations at the new moon a couple of weeks back, promptly went on a self-sabotage bender. Back now tho’ and ready to do it all again in a couple of hours’ time.

I yearn for massive transformation, my grand earth trine is really rumbling right now. Jupes and Mars in my first house going nuts on my Mars-Uranus-Pluto… Pluto exact on my moon-Lilith. I could do anything, if only I knew what it was.

Oh my God, I LOVE this story about Tim Noonan, what a seamless expression combining both trauma and purpose to live one’s astro/karma. Last night I was at a party for my old studio, after years of being invited and never going I finally experienced my first kirtan. I usually opt out of chanting in yoga classes as I am not gifted with a decent singing voice and it often feels like a lifeless mandatory flag salute in school. I did not chant, but I feel like I finally understood something ineffable and important. Something about the content beyond the… Read more »

I have so much to say about the power of the voice but will keep it short. Each chakra point has an associated color and tone. In the Hebrew system these tones are described by a series of letters (numbers) that guide to the correct tone for each point. These ‘words’ are called the names of God. There are 72 ‘names’. Most of these names are constructed by sequences of vowels. It is said that the spirit is present in our lives through the vowels. Aeiou. By placing vowels into words, and projecting them with voice we align ourselves with… Read more »

Mystic welcome back we missed you! Your post had me thinking and probably its related to the full moon. I am a singer and I know that I can use my voice to help and be if service in this world. I am trying to figure out how I can use my voice and continue singing and be able to support myself and create a life that I know I am destined to live. I dont know if the full moon will give the answers but I know it will start with me. I hope I can find my voice… Read more »

Welcome back Mystic!!!! Great that you had a super holiday and have come back so energised. You left us with some very capable folks and it was great to have a different vibe for a little while but WE MISSED YOU! (Well, I sure did.) Oh and make sure you schedule in more regular hols for your own sanity 🙂 XX

And I opened this after randomly deciding this morning to listen to LOTS of my own vocal recordings while starting the day. I basically fell in love with myself through it. With my life’s unique energy. So grounding.

Thanks for taking your fabulous vacation and thanks even more for coming back to share.

Big love! !!

Welkommen back, Mystic. RSH & KF did a good job. So true about Mars in Virgo. You cant rest; ever.

My brain gets up in middle of the night and works things out and lm fast asleep; no effort. I’ve just had Mars return and is now over my Mars Pluto and is trining my Sat in Cap. Im doing the work of 3 men / 2 women. Breakfast is an impediment to progress.

Welcome back, Mystic. Than almost see the new energy rippling through your words. The last two weeks have been epic upheavals in my love life. A semi-casual correspondence went from harmless flirting in postcards to a crazy evening by the river (a few hours before the first eclipse). As we parted at 2am we said ‘we’ were something we wanted to persue but this necessitated serious discussions with those already in our lives. This precipitated me asking my partner of 13 years if we could open our relationship. I was pretty naive – I didn’t realise just how broken our… Read more »

Welcome back. I am also a “”–have been able to read people’s motivations and energy since I was little–did a session over at Jeanette Maw’s GoodVibe University awhile back and masquerade as a voice teacher and singing voice specialist in the medical community for those singers coming out of vocal fold surgery. Lots of science involved but informed by intuition.

Oooh, welcome back! I gave Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” a listen this afternoon in honor of the real thing. He really nails that seasonal ache. I spent a really nice couple days all up in the guy I’m dating. Got in this morning and was overwhelmed with how much me-stuff I need to do. Update the journal. Take the dog for a long walk. Meditate. Honor the moon. Be with myself for awhile. But then after so much togetherness this all seems a little melancholy. I’m getting so much better at not making my moods and feelings mean things. I… Read more »

Neil is the most eclectic performer. Everything from strings to being the Godfather of grunge and many between.

Yay!!! You were very missed, so glad you had a super recharge though.

I’m literally taking this moon energy minute by minute, it’s activating seriously personal points in my chart, gotta keep a cool head and not go nuclear on anyone haha. That’s fascinating about the voice. Makes sense. I’m actually spending the eclipse in a soundbath, that feels even more appropriate now ha.

Welcome back Mystic. Wow just read article this morning in the new HEXAGON magazine, titled “How to Use Your Voice to Co-Create with the Moon” by Carrie Davoli. She’s a music therapist. Basically using specific tones to align with each moon phase. If anyone is interested she listed her website: musicasavoice.com. I personally have not gone to the site yet, nor am I promoting here. Just sharing the information I read along this theme of voice. I know from personal experience that making certain sounds will effect the position of your body.

Delighted to have you back, Mystic, and with an eerily accurate post too… have had miserable voice-sucking cold that forced me into near complete silence for four days last week. At first it was kind of cute, then incredibly annoying, then isolating… but then a kind of peaceful wisdom descended and I started relishing the sounds around me so much more, letting them resonate for me whilst developing all new appreciation for my own voice.

Anyway, lovely to see you joyful and refreshed!

Welcome back! Yayyyy!

Voice guy sounds so interesting. I have noticed that some people’s voices grate on me – voices of people whose energy clashes with mine.

Ready for the eclipse. Had a bonfire last night; so happy it’s bonfire season again. Definitely some interesting patterns here with the dates and life changes.

Welcome back Mystic! Thanks Kim and Rachel for all the amazing scopes and astro-hacks. I’m finally recovered from the summer of mononucleosis thanks to some great acupuncture, still working an intense schedule and longing for life balance and emotional support, but friends and family all seem to have decided I’m not interesting to them or part of their world. Since Saturn entered Sag I’ve been restless and full of wanderlust. On the astrology front, amazed to discover via Kim’s recent Astro-Hack that Eros is conjunct my North Node in Scorpio. So, busy day today and then I hope to have… Read more »

Welcome! You are missed and I am happy that you had a fantastic time.

The solar eclipse was on my DSC, I think it has something to do with my karma. I have no idea what this one will bring.

I have Saturn / Venus conjunction and my voice sounds terrible on the phone etc. 🙁 bleh.

Into the writing burrow – my plan for this eclipse is write, re-pot plants.

Welcome again Mystic 🙂

So glad you are back to help us through this Full Moon. Having such whirling emotion coming up and out this week. Just keep on releasing them from That Situation since early 2014. Had planned on writing a long letter to the Virgo fellow about it all and then planting the letter in my garden for my Full Moon ritual.

Glad your holiday was restorative and wonderful.
