Why Isn’t Anyone Awake?

Glenn Barr 2

 

“Closing your eyes isn’t going to change anything. Nothing’s going to disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes…Keep your eyes wide open. Only a coward closes his eyes. Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears won’t make time stand still.” (Kafka on the Shore)

Haruki Murakami

 

Why Isn’t Anyone Awake?

Outer Planet Transits – the heavy-hitters Pluto, Uranus and Neptune – can feel like this.

Nights lying awake, mind buzzing, alive, processing your Everything at 2 to 4 a.m. are usually the Outer Planet Transits.  Obviously, someone you know is awake, somewhere, but are they they AWAKE-awake?

When you’re doing Pluto, barely anyone seems awake enough for you. Uranus? You only SEE the other people operating at a Uranian frequency.  You don’t hold conversations. It’s all neuro-transmission.  On Neptune most of the action is astral. Whiffs of information float into the wind along with some deja-vu evoking scent you can’t quite recall.

And then there are the people who are permanently on this stuff, the Outer Planet People.  Ever wonder why you’re ‘weird’ – look to an outer planet ON one your Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars or Venus.  You most likely only really get along with other Outer Planet People.

Ohhhh… so THAT’s what’s going on! Uranus hanging out with my Moon and Pluto with my Sun. I always put it down to my two-speed Moon sign confusing peeps, but I suppose the outer planets add a bit of undertow?

Why am I not awake anymore? Mars-Pluto-Mercury. Venus square Neptune.

North Node and Jupiter are transiting my AC – Sun. I feel awful. :-/

I could say expansion isn’t always necessarily easy or painless (having given birth in my lounge room I can attest to the pain of expansion!!) … but expansion brings opportunity and new horizons as well, when the growing pains settle.

Hope there is more of the Jupiter goodness soon.

Outer planet person all the way. Pluto and Neptune neck and neck as the strongest planets in my chart.

It took me a long time to realize how off-putting I can be. Deadly wallflower. Rose with thorns!

I also make no sense half the time, even to myself.

Not surprised to see that nearly everyone on this forum is OPP, too.

lol.

Do you think a boy with Pluto in Scorp in his 7th house would like a girl who is made almost entirely of Pluto and Scorp? Or am I just bad karma ?

These are questions…

The Libran Lover is Pluto-Sun and I’ve been hankering to work it out. Two weekends ago he said: I’m weird. And I said: so? And he said: no I’m really really weird. And I said: I don’t see that as a problem. Friday just gone he said, not for the first time, how hard he finds people. That he doesn’t get them and he often just makes a hash of it and ends up disappointing and hurting people. That it would be better off to withdraw and stay there. I’ll admit, he’s not easy. Not by any stretch of the… Read more »

One piece of advice i learned from another older gal that i find totes rings true for me when i look back on failed relationships is that when a guy tells you to your face he sucks/is awful/crappy/isnt relationship-material/etc… BELIEVE him and act accordingly. Do not try to save or change his mind. Maybe that is true for this guy too? I don’t know. A pluto-sun isnt that weird. gwenneth paltrow has that config and seems quite normcore to me, but of course i also have that config too. I would say it gives one a love of intensity and… Read more »

I think it depends on who you have as compare and contrast too – as to how your conceive your weirdness. For me, all my friends are creatives. The women I used to deal with when my son was at school were all suburban wage slaves with uber clean houses and I was totally weird and strange and confronting to them. Had I measured myself against them – yes, I would have felt weird in a bad way. When others embrace our eccentricities we have a chance to feel comfortable in our skin. And yes. Listen and take warning. But… Read more »

So if I’m not an ‘outer planet’ person according to that post (ie uranus and pluto conjunct in 5th house virgo, Neptune in 7th Scorp but not with any ‘inner planet’, why have I’ve always identified as an outsider and a weirdo — despite seeming pretty ‘straight’ and normal on the surface — I actually feel pretty uranian

I’ve had outer planet transits continually over my inner planets for a very long time. First it was Uranus, then Neptune, and now Pluto… I’ve got Aqua Sun, Pisces Moon, Pisces Mars and Cap Venus. Pluto is off my Venus now, but on my Desc just a few degrees inside my 7th. I guess if I live long enough, I’ll have Pluto go over my Sun at some point. I’d be in my 60s by then, so hopefully by then I won’t give a damn.. So, that will be, over my lifetime, transits of ALL outer planets over my Sun.… Read more »

I write custom software and if I’m really stuck on something and can’t see the solution ( seriously this can go on for weeks sometimes ) I plan an all night work session. Often at between 2-4 in the morning when all is quiet, no distractions the solution just appears, staring me right in the face. I’ll then keep that groove going for 2 or 3 days and complete the job. I always quote at least a 3 month period to complete a job. I stew and stew for weeks and then whammo 2 or 3 days non stop and… Read more »

Edgar Cayce and Seth – via Jane Roberts – both wrote/spoke about 2-3am being the optimal time for “meditation”. Putting that in quotes because not sure what to call the inspiration hour/moment. Went through a phase where I woke up every 3 hours and always at that time. It was Pluto transiting my IC.

This is literally my current mode of operation (lying awake obsessing, usually about an upcoming performance OR astrology). I am a confirmed outer planet peep with moon sq neptune, Mercury opp Saturn AND Uranus, Mars trine Pluto & opp Neptune, Venus opp Pluto (which is conjunct the IC). Currently have Uranus squatting on my Moon where it’s been for ages. Just want Saturn to get OUT of my 4th house so I can stop being ‘itinerant’ (aka homeless) & sigh, begin my Saturn return – which is already opposing my Gemini sun. To say I identify with all this is… Read more »

It’s funny, but I don’t have any out planets conjoining my inner planets at all.
I always feel I am a bit normcore (saturn conjunct venus=normcore in my mind).
Still… whenever I open my mouth all kinds Pluto/Uranus/Neptune falls out..
Maybe I have had to consciously bring their influence to the fore?

Kind of y’know? Intense scorp moon, mystical crystal leanings and well, electric, maybe or not, but I can’t tell, but I asked my husband this line all week, “why isn’t anyone awake?”. Right now, it seems quite normal that Mystic’s blog oozes my personal thoughts.

The antidote to that is to download/buy Courtney Barnett’s new album

Saturn conjunct Venus is so far from normcore, I don’t even know where to start.

I picture normcore more like Venus in Linra trine Jupiter.

But then again, is there really such a thing as normcore in this world of special snowflakes? (and I really don’t mean that as snarky as it sounds- we are all a unique bundle of aspects)

(Full disclosure: I have Venus-Saturn conjunct straddling my MC)

All my planets are spread with one in each house. Chiron in Aqua 8th house by itself also. So no major conjunctions. Though I do have Saturn in cap in my 7th house. And Pluto in Virgo my 3rd house. So I can come across as a bit austere and serious to those that don’t know me. Which fools those outer planet people no end. As we sit to discuss serious intense matters, little do they know that soon my gem moon and Gem Asc will strike out with a display of shallowness that totally confounds their sensibilities.

So this is no attempt to join the outer planet club as the innies and outies are firmly segregated in my chart, but Pluto sq Pluto on my IC which has been happening for …ages… Is yielding results thanks to the first of many sessions with a bona fide trained professional psych person. It’s made easier by the fact that the past 5 years I have been making an effort to take apart various ugh nebulous things that were affecting my life. so there has been a lot of groundwork.

Hey love, as a fellow middle aged single woman, we are *not* on the scrapheap!! I often think I’ve dodged a bullet by being single for so long — having a husband or partner doesn’t mean you’re more attractive, happier or more fortunate, that’s for sure!

Stop ‘trying’ and accept who you are and where you are, don’t put on a brave face, share how you really feel — actually I think you’re pretty cool and I’m glad to be your friend. It will all turn out ok (I know I’ve been there too, a million times 😀 ) xxxxx

I often find myself asking that same question. How come no one sees through all the advertisers lies, tv adverts & magazines pushing products down people’s throats? Obey. Consume.

During the ZZ, I had Pluto opposite Moon, Uranus opposition and Uranus square Moon. It was impossible to sleep for more than 3 hours, my days were long, I was energized all the time, people seemed sluggish. It turns out it was just a foreign mass in my pituitary gland that made me super awake. lol Now Uranus is approaching to conjoin my Sun, I go to bed at 10pm, wake up every two hours, do some kind of activity for 15 minutes (write, meditate, cleaned the fridge once), then go back to bed and repeat this pattern until 6am.… Read more »

Fascinating. I also have moon sq. uranus natally — and esp. around the full moon, I am AWAKE at 3 – 4:00 am. Maybe I should try your 15 minutes/go back to bed pattern, because deep breathing and willing myself to sleep doesn’t work so well.

Inanna, it was very hard psychologically for a while knowing that monophasic sleep was not in the cards for me anymore. I spent a lot of time berating myself trying to force myself to sleep, then on the following morning I would wake up in a foul mood, feeling groggy, like I had failed to act like a “normal person”. When I realized that I should be listening to my body and creating my own routine and reality I could see my overall health improving. I´m Kataka Moon – ebb and flow. 🙂

I have been a pretty crap sleeper since I was pregnant (12 years ago) but from late April it took it to a whole new level. At worst I was sleeping in 45 minute blocks. At the better end I was waking 6 times a night. It’s only in the last two weeks that my sleep has finally ironed out again. I’ve joked that the Saturn-Neptune square has finally bought order to my sleep again. I’ve had two nights where I’ve slept straight through in the last week. I am lucky to get one night like that every 6 months.… Read more »

I understand this and completely agree with you. I have Kataka Moon in 7th House Semi-Sextile Leo Uranus in 9th, Semi-Square Virgo Pluto in 9th, Wide Trine Scorp Neptune in 11th (to name just a few aspects).

Have hardly slept for years and years and am quite okay with that. I have heaps of energy and creative ideas… hehe.

That ‘ebb and flow’ relate to weight as well… which doesn’t help having Cap Jupiter Conjunct Sag Ascendant. 🙂

Yup, that’s totally me. Mars conjunct Neptune and Jupiter on Asc and according to declination I just found out that apparently my uranus and neptune are conjunct too.

OH is that why I’m ‘weird’ — Pluto conjunct my Mercury? I like to see it as a blessing, but it is so difficult sometimes for me to connect with other people, esp. normals/Muggles. I was a relatively silent child and still something of a loner. Where are my outer planet people?

Also – that’s the major conjunction, but do other close aspects play into it? My natal chart:

I’ve got Uranus on my ascendant too. It’s been an *interesting* life.

Do any of you have a thing with electricity? The power went out at the hospital when I was born, for no apparent reason. I’ve been around a few lightning strikes and when me an another OPP friend traveled together, the town experienced their first tornado ever and the power went out at the hotel. It was an intense but focal storm cell, some of the group members staying a few miles away experienced nothing.

Just wondering what some of you other Uranus rising types might experience. 🙂

Yeah, the hospital thing when I was born has only recently become more interesting to me. I didn’t think too much of it until this year, which has been incredibly transformative (lots of pain and difficulty coupled with some pretty incredible mystical and powerful life changing experiences.) Then I started to putting pieces together from my life. I asked my parents more about the story, and I guess the power really did go out *when I was born*. Considering I wasn’t breathing, it made for an interesting experience as they handed me to my Dad who had to “carry me… Read more »

Uranus rising meeting for tea?…..meeting for tea?….that is right out there

Lol! Maybe taking tea outside under an umbrella in a lightning storm would make it … more interesting. But that’s just my Uranus conjunct Mars and Mercury talking.

Oh you mean that Neptune-Moon duo in the 12th? Or my son’s Moon-Pluto-Jupiter in Saggo? My Mer-girl is Sun-Neptune in Pisces. Her Aries Venus on MC gives her backbone. My sister was Libra Neptune-Sun. She was mystical, devout, truly angelic. Her compassion setpoint suffuses me with kindness. My theory- we Outer Planet clan have to incarnate together, as Muggles confound us- as we do them. Comparing notes at day’s end- marveling at transcendent moments we take for granted.

Oh I love your theory and it makes sense to me!

I’m in the north east and we’re having the same thing… it’s been 50 out!

Oh, this is me all the time! Mind buzzing, too much to do before sleepy time. Moon Neptune conjunction is my strongest aspect. Then I have Uranus conjunct my Scorpio ascendant (plus part of my angular t-square). Pluto is my chart ruler to boot.

So when I meet another outer planet person it is raw and deep and shifts the world. It’s hard to wait for such connections, but when they are found, it’s the marrow of life.

You put that so beautifully, the marrow of life… I’d do anything for more of that. It’s a shame those connections are so rare.

Thanks. I have an 8th house stellium and Pluto in the 11th, so connections are otherworldly. Can only handle a certain amount at a time.

I have Uranus practically on top of my moon…in Aquarius (with Lilith right nearby too). The Uranian/Aquarian vibes are real.

And it’s true, I don’t really connect with most people.

Update: She’s got Sun-Pluto-Mercury tight together in Sagg and I think they’re right by the Great Attractor too. (about 14 Sagg, right?)

My goddaughter is Uranus Moon stellium in Libra. Aqua Rising- and is solitary but loyal to her crew. Extensively traveled. Also Scorp Sun.

I have Pluto in the first natally… this rings true. I am drawn to Plutonic people in friends and otherwise, never really made the connection until now, though. Husband has Sun-Pluto conjunct, in Scorpio.

Both my kids have Pluto in the first as well.

My 2nd son is Venus/Mars in Scorp. And Neptune on MC-

Almost all my friends are Scorp or Pluto driven.

Rings true as well.

Someone once told me that if you have Scorpio prominent in your chart, you do best paired up with someone who also has it. I would extend that to Plutonic influences in general.

For instance, I have Moon in Scorpio, closely sextiling Pluto, and at least three of my close friends have Pluto in the first, like you. I like to think we’re friends because I can handle their intensity, and them mine.

Oh i never thought about that, but makes sense. Everyone else is too scared to appreciate the intensity.

That makes sense. My husband is Moon, Pluto, and Mercury conjunct. Def an intense soul.

Moon-Uranus-Lilith conj. in Libra squaring Venus in Cap….relationships problematic? Er – yessss…. Also Neptune op Saturn/NN conj (continually bouncing between an overly pracical and an excessively mythical view point) and Pluto trine MC/NN conj (not sure how this plays out but I am constantly having my life demolished and rebuilt in completely new configurations..). Quite exhausting really.
