We Need Air

Filed in SUN SIGNS

Mitch Cullin

Someone pointed out in the comments that there is no Air in the astrology at the moment. There are Air signs going quietly nuts out there, fixating on all manner of bold impulse moves, just to feel breezy again. It  is all Fire, Earth and Water.  Mercury Retro in Capricorn is hanging out near Pluto and intensifying Saturn.

It’s SO nuts (I have Aquarius Rising, North Node in Gemini + Moon in Libra) that i am resorting to asteroids. YES, asteroids.  For perspective.

So, we currently have Psyche in Gemini – Lilith, Hygeia (the Health Goddess) and Diana in Libra – Narcissus, Atlantis, Hermes, Hecate and Ceres in Aquarius. Those latter two are brilliant Witch vibe. We may have to go total pentagrammy, sage for the bad vibe eradication and high tech herbal.

In a week, the Sun will be in Aquarius – there will even be a Full Moon in Leo for when you decide to cope with the astro by radically switching it up with your hair, cinema intake, music, fashion, cats – ignoring the non-stop truth drip of Saturn in Sagittarius. Seriously, this thing needs a MUTE button.

And…

“For example, the wind has its reasons. We just don’t notice as we go about our lives. But then, at some point, we are made to notice. The wind envelops you with a certain purpose in mind, and it rocks you. The wind knows everything that’s inside you. And not just the wind. Everything, including a stone. They all know us very well. From top to bottom. It only occurs to us at certain times. And all we can do is go with those things. As we take them in, we survive, and deepen.”
? Haruki Murakami, Hear the Wind Sing

My Grandmother used to say, ‘Sometimes, one has to make some air’.. Sounds much better if you say it in German. I’m feeling the void

Psyche in Gemini stopped me cold.
I have Ceres at 10 degrees Retro in Gemini.
All sorts of weird food issues, mothering issues, home and provisions issues have been coming to the fore for me. But I have been weirdly flexible and found a flow with it.

My smallish bits of Yang just seem to burn regardless of the sky. But, as has been noted, the blue/green sky is great. But l cant get over the recent dailies and this weeks scopes. So on the money. I have an employment / biz opp open up. Basically in the town were l have 2 pending dates (a Virgo tmoro morn). This all culminated as the Moon was in the last degrees of Fisces and a ‘nailer’ @ 0° Aries. The main opposition in the town is shutting down. Plus wkend’s scpoes say do edited over total candour; my… Read more »

So many realisations and admissions. This merc retro period is very interesting. Jupiter and north node degrees away from my sun in 12th. I was casually going through my twitter feed and came across a tweet by a guy I met during a language programme for which I was awarded a scholarship. This was back in 2013 – some of you might remember. We had a wonderful 6 weeks on the programme.We both had exes at that time we were both trying to get over but failing lol. I can’t remember all the finer details just the good times. And… Read more »

Do you have anything in the 9th house?

I can relate with my venus Libra in 9th. Love a good accent or guys who can imitate them 🙂

Love zombie-ing too. I blame Mars in Scorp

I’ve reached peak capacity regarding the depth of my emotions this past week and that’s a hug call considering I’m a multi-scorp with a packed 8th house.

I’ll puke soon if I don’t get any air!! Didn’t realise how much i need it – Venus in Libra, Gem NN and Saturn / Psyche in Aqua

Feeling like I’m wearing too-tight clothes (smothered by spanx). Gem sun, merc, venus, saturn & rising. Help! Send the air!

Dude, ME, TOO!

I also feel like I’m made of lead. Like I am actually physically heavier and having trouble moving around.

Is that it? Well I also felt like I couldn’t breathe the past 2 days. Stress, you see, triggered by? I sure there is an astro culprit.

Sun, Mercury & Venus in Aqua here, I’m doing ok it’s just so many people turning into Muggles at a blink of your eye. Tiring dodging them. It does feel stifling.

Haha I was just walkinh around my apartment yesterday saying, “I need air!!!!”

Libra sun and moon.

This also might explain why my social life up and died in the last month. It’s not that people don’t want to hang out with me- I’ve just lost interest in everyone. Bo-ring.

Just looked up some articles about him – he co wrote a play about the life and death of Gaza activist Rachel Corrie with the now editorof the Guardian, was married to a labour politician, lots of international charitable work, and was very, very generous and funny to know

“Actors are agents of change,” he said. “A film, a piece of theatre, a piece of music, or a book can make a difference. It can change the world.”

I feel like David has done so much and yeah, it’s ok to let go.. But for some reason with Alan Rickman I was devastated.
And David was my soundtrack growing up, I mean I really have him deep in my subconscious. But perhaps as Rickman only began his movie career in his 40’s I feel I have had less of his particular brand of fabulous? Either way, what sadness.

I was like that when Elvis died. I was more devastated when Groucho died soon after.

No air–manifesting quite physically for me. Can’t wait for the Aqua sun.

Well, this explains a lot. With all the Neptune action, I’ve been having amazing dreams–notably a vivid one about giving birth (never have, never will, in the material world). Everything’s pointing me toward a new course of study, including this site’s tarot. I have the direction, the books, the time–then I sit down to it and bam. I’m stuck in the mud and can’t seem to move past the intro. Let’s hope the Aquarius sun helps loosen things up a bit.

BTW, I’m a Libra sun, Gemini ascendant.

“There are Air signs going quietly nuts out there, fixating on all manner of bold impulse moves, just to feel breezy again.”

EXACTLY. I had been thinking this was one of those Libra-unbalancing-the-scales-to-balance-them-again episodes, but clearly the Air vacuum is also to blame.

I’m Leo sun with aqua rising moon, venus and north node. Everything appears very bleak and stifling even last couple of days. Held back tears today. I usually sing under my breath all day but felt like I couldnt breath today. When does this let up?

dizzarinaMM Member

Bleak and stifling, yep. Perfect description.

I have aqua rising and my SN in Gemini and honestly all I can feel right now is boredom. Also, Saturn in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Virgo are no fun when you’re a multiple Sag. I can’t wait for Jupiter to move into Libra, it’s still going to be in my 8th for a while but hopefully won’t trigger my food/perfectionism issues like Virgo does. But then, I’m in a much better place than I was in the ZZ, so there’s that.

I’ve got the Sun Pluto and North node conjoined in Air. My Descendant 7th is in Air. Luckily, I’ve got a Fire Ascendant and a lot of Earth to keep me out of harms way. Capricorn is squaring my sun, trining Venus Moon Mercury Midheavan. I can deal with this this Mercury Retrograde by skating around and on through, adapting, don’t stop moving.

Does anyone feel the surreal emotional tension and compassion from pisces moon conjunct chiron square venus in sagittarius? I think it heightens for me the neptune square saturn theme. There are poignant truths we uncomfortably face, with tenderness, humanity and acceptance. For me it is 7th house water, pisces facing the briliant fire of sagittarius just past my IC, into 4th. The business of relationships at home, parenting, being a parent, being parented…all affecting, exposing domestic illusions… The trine to aries uranus 8th was not that spectacular because the magnitude of plutos force in earth is a heavy weight to… Read more »

Is this why my chest is feeling tight!? Nah, the lack of air out there must be why everyone seems to be coming to me for some (Sun, Mercury, Pluto & NN in Libra)… all wanting to debrief, lighten up, get some perspective from… family, friends and work peeps. It is a bit sticky out there at the moment, but I like it. Forced myself to deal with some uncomfortable situations and fears, reunited with relatives I hadn’t spoken for 20 years, due to passing of my grandmother…and felt this profound sence of guilt lifting…relief, belonging and a feeling of… Read more »

Like, this actually got to my immune system–I started to feel cold/flu like symptoms–I have been counteracting with reishi tincture I made myself, superfoods, lots of water, tea, etc.

SO APT–my lilith in Libra is my LILITH RETURN, so at least there is that happening–and my NN is in Aqua so NO WONDER I have been picking up on this vibe. This is something I have been meaning to consult SOMEBODY about–the other night, I was on the bus, with my son, and I felt a pull to go visit a tarot house that has strangely popped up in my old hometown recently. Odd, because we are talking about SPRINGFIELD OREGON, best known for The Simpsons, meth and the Thurston High School shooting of ’98. I am talking a… Read more »

THIS IS THE THING THOUGH–and here is where my Gemini Jupiter shows itself–I do consider, am I seeing this the wrong way? Is my Aries moon just being stubbornly independent? Is there a miracle cure being offered here, in spite of the sketch signs?

I don’t think so–I still feel pretty firm about my instinct–AND YET, I DO CONSIDER.

VeronicaMM Member
Veronica

my 2 cents, I reckon nope nope nope.

You can clear it yourself *if there is anything* smudge out your house, do all your own witchy things, trust yourself in this situation.

dizzarinaMM Member
dizzarina

NO no no. Storefront psychics are a sham. EVERYBODY is told they have some negative spirit hanging around that can only be banished by giving the reader more and more money. I looked into this after visiting one on a lark. People have given over their entire savings to these charlatans. Google it, it’s really sickly fascinating.

As Veronica said, anything that needs doing, can be done yourself. Or seek out a *trusted* energy worker/psychic that you find by recommendation.

dizzarinaMM Member
dizzarina

Also- they may be “just trying to make ends meet”, but so is every criminal, no? These people are predators, preying on the vulnerable, those in confusion and seeking answers. They will bleed you dry. They have no mercy. They are dark forces and must be avoided at all costs.

This is not an exaggeration.

dizzarinaMM Member
dizzarina

Actually, not predators- PARASITES is the word I was looking for. Predators select the weak and the old and finish them off quickly. Parasites find the weak place in an otherwise strong host and slowly sap its life force away.

VeronicaMM Member
Veronica

yep, an energy worker who comes by recommendation can be extremely helpful, and that is a transparent and positive exchange of energy in that situation.

But there really are some leeches out there

Mystic said it months ago: Be your own guru.

Sounds quite shonky- and her vibe is now on whatever you lent her- salt scrub and crystsls for it.

I would do vibe cleanse-healing of anything you wore to that house-

And empower yourself with music, sounds, food, incense etc that energize and heal. Tibetan chimes, sea salt, the lot- whatever witch wisdom you have.

Just because someone is psychic- they could be a qi vamp too. And huckster.

Feel better!!!! That Aries Moon won’t take it lying down!

I’m very metal – something METAL of yours?? – no n-n-no no no. People who DON’T mean it are still, in fact WORSE than the others, VAMPING. Because they give off no harm signals You need to cleanse,by yourself. First, get your pocket knife (hey, Mars square Pluto here: we’re extremely good with knives…in fact, i’m going to do a quick butchery course tomorrow with my local butcher.) Clean it with pure alcohol or tea tree or something on a cotton bud. Get all the old grit out from carrying it around. Sharpen it, if you have the tools (and… Read more »

Yeh yeh your is you’re, of course. But more importantly, I just thought, funny it was your knife she got hold of. Look maybe that’s just me and my whole knife blades thing, but something is really important about that, as a Neptunian 12th housey channelling type Piscean. I truly rely on my irritating Mars Squares ( i have about 4, in a couple of t-squares) to help me out of psychic Qi Vamping trouble. So please do let me bring home to you the power of metal blades. You’ve already got a precious pocket knife, so i think you’ll… Read more »

Mille, similar astro- loaded 12th with Moon-Neptune. But Mars-Pluto square. I am a bit leery of knives in the hands of others. My boys throw knives.

I felt that alert on the knife too-

Rachel feel better- download a clean sweep program from the witch ethers!!!

Aghh! Noo! Hissss! Bad!

I was taken advantage by these people once long ago. I was in a very vulnerable place in my life.

I do believe they have enough intuitive ability to play into your feelings and extort you.

The whole experience was pretty similar to yours- they actually even got some extra money off of me!
And things got very dark. I felt my light dim. My luck got worse.

I wanted to paint a big black strip across their door to warn people…

I’m fine with the earth and water right now, loving it actually. I haven’t felt so grounded in a long, long time. I’ve become SO boring. It’s all about fruit and veg and spreadsheets. I do however have a fab airy friend who I’ve recently reconnected with. I don’t know her birth time (yet) but she is sun-Saturn conj in Gem with Uranus and Pluto in Libra and Jupiter in Aqua. I suspect she must be Leo rising as she is a performer in several different fields and has the best hair of anyone I’ve ever known. I get my… Read more »

I’m loving it too. So productive and grounded right now. But then again I have no air in my chart. But yeah, I’ve noticed at work that my Gem friend is going nutso at the moment.

I think because I was wondering why the Gem catch-up made me feel so… normal? , so I was thinking about air, looked at the astro sidebar on this site (such genius Mystic, i refer to it constantly) and thought hang on something’s missing… no yellow! not a bit. then further pondering today – red blue green, like a screen/monitor. the components of whatever that colour thing is. OK so we have a monitor…what’s air? transmission! to connect. lines are down. static, power cut, system upgrades, maintenance whatever. so. back to the crucible, enlightened in my own little way.. spend… Read more »

Yes, there is a very noticeable ‘qi stagnation’ in and around everything right now, no movement, no wind. It’s making me cranky. I’m Aqua Sun and Mercury…..though the rest of my chart is pretty much water and earth. I *still* have Neptune transiting exactly on my Pisces Moon at 7 degrees and Chiron transiting exactly on my Mars at 17 Pisces…….forever now. The NN is transiting right on my Pluto too, mine’s at 22 Virgo, close enough……so that’s my Pluto/Mars opposition being transited by a Chiron/NN opposition……..hmmm……not sure how to interpret except to tell myself to “LOOK OUT!”…….not sure what… Read more »

My 22 yr old son has only Aquarius and Pisces in his personal chart, not sure about the nodes etc.
Merde has hit the fan in recent days, as old arguments re-surfaced, old hurts re-visited, and he’s off to Qld to start a new chapter. An awful, awful time. Did a Tarot reading and OMFG. Nothing but happy signs, good stuff, new beginnings, all powerful, auspicious cards. Each one perfectly placed within a house rich with meaning to the situation.
Thank you Mystic and thank you Spirit for the clear, strong message of reassurance that all is well.

Drowning and suffocating. When teen gets sick, with anything- I struggle for sympathy. Told her she had to go to school and toughen up. I used to never talk like that. Lilith in Libra on my everything. She melted down, got a horrid headache and went to bed crying. Offended her horribly- and I felt terrible after.

This is the Pisces Moon- S Node- to Virgo NN and Jupiter. Lots of tears and lectures on health.

Bleak.

Yes! I’m an Aquarius (Sun, Moon, & Mercury) and have seriously felt this — though the astro’s been fairly stuffy/airless since Saturn got in Scorpio, no?
