  • A short fuse with fuqwits.

 

  • Newly awakened interest in voodoo dolls and/or using the bones of your enemies as jewelry/decor. Totally ironic of course.

 

  • Disillusion with previous belief system/guru/mentor/industry/muse that sustained you.

  • Status Anxiety

 

  • Temporal Anomalies

 

  • Goals that seem super desirable and at hand yet also with-held from you.

Goals

  • The desire to fuq off and become a pilgrim, treading some imaginary well-paved and well-lit scenic path, less traveled by fuqwits and isolated but totally safe with some form of affordable luxury temple accommodation at each nightly stop-over.

  • Overwhelm.

 

  • Refining your diet for 2016 and working out that the only thing left that you can eat is avocado and burdock.

 

  • Googling personality disorders that you think people you know might have and then being paranoid they probably do the same thing for you.

  • Questioning your decisions circa 2008

 

  • The mind feels Yang but the body is all Yin.

 

  • Fashion Dysmorphia

My dear daddy (b. 13 April 1933) died on Thurs 7th Jan… evening… approx. 6.25ish pm. I was with him at the time… having spent the last 2 and a half hours of his breathing life with him until he passed. Very sad. But also uplifting. That day… in the sky… * Sun Conjunct Pluto in Cap Square Uranus in Aries… * Jupiter Conjunct North Node in Virgo… * Neptune Square Venus – Moon – Saturn in Sagittarius… * Mars in Scorpio Square Mercury R in Aquarius. In his chart… not knowing his birth time… * Transiting Neptune was Conjunct… Read more »

I told all my prospective roommates & realtor I would be finding a 1br. Brash? All I want is some peace & quiet. Ending things with my 2.5 year long bf who has the potential to be everything but we both seem to be stuck for some reason & fight ALL THE TIME & break up without fail EVERY new moon? Why is that? Every new moon, on the dot. Someone pls answer that for me.

Rememeber the ex-professional tennis player, turned finance wizz kid, turned music producer with the insane body, accent that made me melt who was a seriously great shag? He texted me the other day asking if I fancied a New Year’s catch up, that evening. I said I was busy but I’d let him know when I was free. The truth is, I wasn’t busy but I am not settling for booty call treatment. I need more respect, love, care and intimacy. Can’t believe I said that but it’s true.

I gave thanks that for some weird reason, certainly not from dieting, i am finally back to my normal size 4 pants size that i hadnt seen since right before 2007 days.

Can we add intense dreams to this list? And maybe random insomniac moments of existential terror. Had a beautifully sad dream about a flat I lived in in San Francisco eons ago, a quirky Queen Anne Victorian that in my dream is five stories high and lushly tricked out… I’ve dreamed of it this way before, but this one was extremely symbolic. I was visiting, and I asked about the upper two stories. They were empty. Outraged at this waste of space, I went up there… they were a perfect artist’s studio, including an attic looking out on the Pacific… Read more »

Can’t wait for the new moon tomorrow!!! Have 10 days to finish off web dev projects and make a stunning portfolio website before our employer meet and greet on Jan 19th — I’m alternately panicking and feeling that I don’t know enough to get a web dev job, and thinking ‘yes I can do this!!’ I didn’t sleep much last night and in the middle of the night suddenly thought — why don’t I move my bed to align north-south instead of east-west?

Lol some kind of affordable luxury temple accommodations. Exactly.

All of the above! Not voodoo dolls but rather recently have had an interest in charms to protect against the evil eye. My aunt sent me an antique jade Italian pendant that belonged to my great aunt, for Christmas. It is called the Mano fico. Italian folk magic charm to ward off the evil eye.

Status Anxiety – yep … struggling to keep a simplified lifestyle afloat at present. Stripped things back as much as possible, but still broke and feeling stuck in my current situation. Wish something would shift … really over it all right now. Goals that seem super desirable and at hand yet also with-held from you – double yep … huge problem for me at the moment, esp. in relation to housing.

Just got another damn check – money goal exceeded. Beautifying the home, enjoying classic Deep house and extolling in sensual home vibes. Throwing a dinner shindig next Friday – excited, my first one in Australia in 2 years! The locals I met the first 5 years were so…hateful. And ungrateful. And entitled. I literally cut off from all that deflective low-vibe energy. It’s been intense being socially isolated, but it was good too. Focused on goals the last 3 years – ready to launch and turn professional this year. Late last year begun meeting more artist types – productive, Haute,… Read more »

My Neptune-sq-Neptune transit is bang on with the new moon. I’m totally withdrawn, first day of bleeding, in bed, watching Nick Cave and happily oblivious to the rest of the world. For now. Had plans for writing to the Libran (ex) Lover over the weekend and resisting the Saturn urge to list all the relevant points to put in said correspondence because that would detract from the spontaneous nature of writing, but afraid if I don’t I’ll get side tracked and waffle on about stuff that’s not so relevant.

Yes. The list of dot points isn’t actually a bad start in terms of getting my head straight (it’s all so bent at the moment!) It’s pending. While quietly minding my own business between bed and a chair where I was knitting – all this shit from 1988 snuck up and kicked me in the heart. Went to my life coach, poured it out, asking for help because obviously nothing I’ve done in the past 30 odd years has worked in shifting it permanently out of my psyche.

Oh God yes I am feeling these, especially the luxurious pilgrim and the personality disorders one (lol)! I was seriously considering taking off and just working and sitting vipassana courses for a few months up until this week… now I might be going the opposite direction and moving back to SF.

Feeling very slothy and mild sore throat the last two days, staying inside and writing again (finally), reading, not pushing anything. Things have been stuck but now they’re opening up in a few different potential directions and I don’t want to make any major decisions from an ungrounded place.

two yin yoga classes per day from today until Sunday.
booked and pre-paid so everything that isn’t yin yoga can go fuq itself
I want my insides to match my outsides – or something
I don’t know, just that life feels confusing, painful, lonely, difficult, beautiful, terrifying and also like it’s all just too much of an effort.
Yin Yoga is my survival hack right now,
It’s the exercise equivalent of a padded cell

Basically, I’m on a bullshit diet. This is making online dating somewhat tricky.

I’ve been going to wordpress meetups since 2013 — I went to WordCamp in Melbourne and met so many cool developer techie types — and have been hoping to learn web development by osmosis.

Also good to feel part of a community! I highly recommend them.

Hey Sleepless it’s sweet cause there is a democracy of awkward which lowers the barriers while the whole set up means it’s not tooooo personal ie you can be “light” and slip off when you are ready without offending anyone.

interesting what you say about there being something in the air…I was there recently and experiences this sort of Jovian feeling of expansion and possibility, and of love, the possibility of love, the love of humankind, of connection. When I got back my psychic therapist told me there’s a crystal that is only found in NY that vibes oneness. It totally made sense.

Supakali- I don’t know about all the crystal business… I find New York fascinating in many ways but it all kind of boils down to the lack of community mixed with over-crowding. Everyone here is their own planet. There is no real community and no one to catch you when you fall. The people I know who love it here feel that it is the center of the world, and the most progressive place, too. That may be true, but it is also one of the loneliest. The vibe DOES stress me out. I never relax. EVER. I’m talking never.… Read more »

Is there any way you could do you job remotely and move out of town?
If not, I think you need to quit your job and move to where you want to be (New Orleans?) and be prepared to be unemployed for a long while until you find another job — is that feasible? do you have friends/family you could stay with? It really sounds like you need to get out now

Thank you, Dizz!

Living someone else’s dream is right!

I DO appreciate NY but I am suffering this lifestyle in vain- If I were trying to do a NYC style career it would be different. I may even be excited. But I’m not. I am still very much connected with New Orleans. Half my friends live there. I visit once or twice a year. Every time everyone always asks me why I don’t come home. I don’t think I could be there forever…but maybe if I could take this leap of faith things would start to click. And that’s th scary part…

dizzarinaMM Member
dizzarina

I know it is. But one thing I’ve learned… the net doesn’t appear until you jump.

And yes, you put it well- you are suffering that lifestyle in vain. There’s no need, really. And think of this: the longer you stay, the harder it can be to leave.

Also, NY is a very hard place to leave. Just to acknowledge what you’re facing. But really, isn’t it as simple as getting in that van and getting on the GW and not looking back? πŸ™‚

oof. You are right. It IS that simple-

until you start thinking!

And god or spirit must want a heavy commitment from me because I HAVE gotten in my car and driven away TWICE- and both times my transmission blew. Two years in a row!

I have even left on buses and trains- only to come back and get my belongings and get sucked in all over again!

My therapist says once I leave I shouldn’t allow myself to be here any longer than two weeks. I agree!

Ive been closer to a 4m white than the shore. I moved quicker then than on land.
I was bowling in the cricket nets to my brother (batting) when 2.4mt brown of huge girth slivered over the pitch between us; we were in awe of its presence. They inhabit outer suburbs to the desert. Ive only seen 5 this summer. Redbacks are everywhere.

Maybe you are in inner Syd or Melb. Ive lived in rural areas for 35yrs and they are real. Where l am now there is crocs n bull sharks happily cruising the river.

Considering 75% of Australians DO live in urban coastal centers, yes, I am speaking from an urban experience.

I wouldn’t recommend transplanting to Australian life to anyone unless they want the suburban dream. Or want to retire. Or want to feel isolated and alone and deal with their demons. En masse the population is quite blah. If it wasn’t for migrants, artists and gay people I couldn’t stand it socially here. Way to much tall poppy syndome and enforced conformity for my rebellious ass πŸ™‚

The Saturn Neptune square is Saturn in my 1st (currently on my Uranus, just passed my Venus) and Neptune in my 4th. They form a T square with Chiron in Gemini in my 7th. So not only is it frustrating, but heartbreak is in the mix… However, this inner dialogue has been going on for YEARS. For YEARS I have tried to leave here and there is always some THING I think I need to… Read more »

Ah ok then you are way ahead of where I was at that time. You know what you want – could be time to get in the van and go πŸ™‚

I’ve been reading up on Neptune in the 4th. Fear of uncertainty, ungroundedness, the need for ‘home’. Your first house Saturn is well placed to help you pull this off. x

Oh wow, Netune has recently moved into MY 4th house and is opposite my midheaven ATM. I say I love my flat because I do and I know how lucky I am to live here, alone but I dream of buying my own place, so I can decorated, or not as I wish. There is a LOT about this place I don’t like, since it’s a rental there are things I just have to put up with but they are rubbish feng shui. I’d looked at places out of London and they are so much cheaper but my thinking is,… Read more »

Neptune has been in my 4th for a while (half Aqua, half Pisces). At the end degrees of Aqua, I bought a house on a hill that has two creeks intersecting behind it. There is something magical about living near moving water for sure.

Chryalis-

Astro.com

Under Methods: Special charts> Astromap “World” or continent of your choice.

There is a way to find out what each planet means on a line, but I can’t remember how- perhaps google

dizzarinaMM Member
dizzarina

Oh I forgot- go to “Extended Chart Selection” first

dizzarinaMM Member
dizzarina

Oh I think that the chart used to be interactive- click on a line and it would tell you about the line. But now it’s just an image.

I know Jupiter and Venus are good lines, and Uranus can be great for creativity. Pluto is a harsh lesson-teacher, as is Saturn.

So basically, whatever the nature of the planet is how it will manifest on the line of that planet.

Also, there is more than one planetary influence per place.

I wish it were still interactive. Perhaps I’m missing something. I’ve been pretty out of it lately.

The energy lift from clutter clearance is so palpable isn’t it? I’d kind of forgotten the reality of that and used bullshit justifications to hang on to crap that didn’t bring me joy.

In terms of the astro – the SN is in Pisces and on your sun yes? – so maybe a good time to ‘fix it or fuq it’?? Or wait until the Jupe / NN hook-up at the end of Jan??

I’m hoping if anyone could clarify my suspicions… My stomach blows up like a balloon for no reason known to me at different times during the moon cycle. Dark moon always affects me intensely, but this time I’ve had an uncomfortably distended stomach for about 4 days. Is it valid that the moon could be affecting my solar plexus? It’s where I feel everything. Excuse my ignorance if this doesn’t sound at all valid. Thankyou so much to anyone that might have a “gut feeling” about it, haha. Xxx

Take some probiotics and possibly some enzymes to help digestion. Also don’t put anything in you that might cause bloat like hard to digest foods.

FireTryin'MM Member
FireTryin'

Consider your personal cycle as well–how does it synch with the moon cycles? My body can tolerate certain foods/substances more right after my period, but the week before, a cup of coffee that would have me feeling fine, feels like a cattle prod attached to my brain. A lot of other things will take me out quicker during that week as well.

Annica’s suggestions are on point. Probiotics and watch what you’re eating.

Kate
Kate

Yes the bloating arrived at the same time as Aunty Flow. Usually it’s in direct sync with the new moon, but came a few days earlier this month to my surprise.
I forget that my physical body is also affected by the moon and the planets, so that what I put into it needs to be different too depending on what’s going on with the Astro
Thankyou for the clarity πŸ™‚

LiliMM Member

Old advice from an old MD- helped with my cycles- dehydration from my cycle badly affected my digestion- and I had awful peristaltic cramping in addition to cycle cramps-

Oatmeal (gluten free) and extra water eliminated gut wrenching pain. I had awful Plutonic purges every cycle- made gluten intolerance (only recently grokked) way worse. Now blessedly free of Moon cycle.

AKAPlutoMM Member
AKAPluto

This isn’t strange to say at all. I have similar issues, though I haven’t followed them along with the moon cycles. I had to seriously curb my diet to stop the constant bloating because it’s so easily triggered (moon/neptune and moon/jupiter are very much involved, I believe).

No dairy, no wheat, no sugar. Drink lots of water throughout the day and eat slowly!
