Dark Moon – Void Mars

Filed in New Moons

Harry Langdon

NOT on the Dark Moon you don’t.  Decadence, pushing down feelings, anything that feels like a backwards move, naff food groups (yes it is a food group) don’t play too well on the Dark Moon. Especially not when Mars is also Void. You can’t even throw a temper tantrum.

But it will all be worth it when the New Moon in Leo Vibe roars in (see Daily Horoscopes for the exact times in L.A., New York, London, Dubai, Hong Kong and Sydney) and you feel the energy of Solar + Lunar Leo in conjunction.   So i am dealing with the shittiest internet service provider situation so – apart from the Horoscopes, obviously –  I will return full-scale with the New Moon.

Meanwhile, think on thee – the New Moon is on asteroid Psyche and in Leo so in what ways could heightened self awareness now benefit you big-time. Psyche-Sun-Moon is super-rad for informed self-actualizing and not being guilted others into eroding your (healthy) ego boundaries.  Also, if Mars through Scorpio was a trip and a psychic treasure hunt, where do you see yourself now, as Mars heads back into Sagittarius? It is totally going to be some place more open.

This painting sums it up really: violent insomnia, but reminds one of
Kristen with Juliette in Maria their last feature, French and Americans are awesome together, and so beautiful – and Ralph et Tlda’s last film – in deep in amongst the mountains?

I’m so glad this is coming to an end. Glad for the psyche being laid bare (and the heart alongside it) but I’m exhausted. And that’s after being exhausted since late April. The Libran lover stepped back into my life last Tuesday, and after a long autopsy of everything that went wrong, we agreed to spend time together as friends (I have nothing more in me to give). In the last I could never get him to agree to where we stood. Have seen him since then and there’s some definite finessing required (we need to learn how to do… Read more »

That sounds rough babe! It hurts so much when grandparents seem to make more effort for one grandchild than another.. I hope you can sort it out. What amazes me is how people don’t see their actions in so many highly emo obvious situations with clarity.

Sending a major good writing vibe your way! (And it may count double due to my Gem rising and Sun). I’m awake when I want to be asleep not doing anything as productive as writing an essay or sorting out an accountant. Think the retro Uranus vibe may be to blame or maybe it’s just the waiting for the new Moon and the void Mars. Looking forward to a fresh vibe in the am.

Hey just realised the new moon is conjunct my self-limiting saturn in Leo. I’m pulling an allnighter here to write an essay draft for my highly strung uranian supervisor, so by the time the pre-dawn astro party hits, I’ll be in a haze of Red Bull and fatigue and hopefully a few thousand words down.. any academia writing vibes sent this way greatly appreciated … lol. (not joking though. happy to return the favour anytime 😉 )
happy new moon, humans X

Mars is transiting my 6th and I have been a bit edgy or bouncy.. injecting daily life with lots of energy and 2-5 yer plan for all & sundry. Spreadsheeting parents finances and family assets and with Jupiter in my 3rd very vocal.
Frustrated by the glacial pace of turning ideas into reality. Spirit friends have NO concept of human time frames.

Invicta
Invicta

Ha That’s true! I’ve been edgy and spread-sheety too! Went a bit overboard in fact. Just called my accountant up to chat about what was bugging me and basically it was a misunderstanding. When I asked him if the payment was for two years, he thought I meant, was it for 2014- 2015 and not for two separate tax returns. He said that £900 has always been his fee for doing a tax return. I was like, really? He laughs – yep oh shit I ain’t got that kind of money dude. I can’t even afford food right now. He… Read more »

“Spirit friends …” YES, They have far too many options ! 😉 As I mentioned the other day your current venture will take time but you are on the right track. The problem of course is this ridiculous rule of everyone involved needing to go at their own glacial pace. There is though a way of circumventing this ‘free will’ nonsense. If all parties consciously hand over their free will rights and agree to surrender to the higher will in this case, then your spirit friends can move things along much faster. Is there a way to orchestrate this ritual… Read more »

Lol! Yes, I never believe those friends when it comes to judging timing, hopeless mathematicians of time cycles, what planet are they on? Tsk
Hmm, I will think about that ritual.. I was hoping they would surrender their free will to MY authoritas! Alas it does seem to be asking too much…

Wow, the clarity of this dark moon! And just my life in general lately. So many veils are coming off my perception. Yesterday I read my tax return for april2015- april 2016 as I’d made an agreement with my (soon to be ex i think) accountant to settle up all the self assessment tax returns early as I’ve been in full time employment since jan of 2016. So about 3 weeks ago he finally submits 2014-2015 but tells me it’s unlikely I’ll ever get back the two grand from when I accidentally over paid tax a couple of years ago… Read more »

This dark moon day was my first day of being unemployed from the job I got laid off of this past month… I feel like it’s a new beginning, though, even though I don’t have a new job yet. I feel relief, though I’m facing a dire financial situation….it’s weird. Scopes for Crab rising said to ‘take it easy’ today, which was perfect, and I mostly did just that, and some self care by doing my grocery shopping for healthy food and cleaning house a bit, these things made me feel good. New moon and other Leo stuff is opposite… Read more »

Sag is my 6th house and Mars will now repeat for the third time these transits.
First it conjuncts my Jupiter at 1 deg, trines my MC and last but not least squares up to natal Pluto. The new moon conjuncts my natal Uranus in Leo in the 2nd while transiting Uranus and Eris continue to conjunct my sun in Aries.
August will be a long celebration of the end of this Mars retro and shadow time.
It’s about time to move forward again ! Please 🙂

Oh my god, just thought of something else. This moon is in Leo 12th, and the synchronicities are just flying at my face. The moon is trining Uranus in Aries and I am currently having my Uranus half return. I feel like I am a conduit for something electrical. I work in an academic library. Yesterday, this weird synchronicity happened again, it is the second time in recent weeks that I have been on the phone to someone who wanted a particular book, only to have another person come in and return the book that I am talking about on… Read more »

And.

Is anyone else having seriously crazy life post event assessment dreams?

It’s like my brain has kept a secret catalogue and I’m suddenly remembering all sorts of random events from my past.

Ampersand
Ampersand

Dreams yes, and also waking life things. I was talking to this lady in the supermarket in the other day, don’t know her, we kept bumping into each other in the aisles and it was a “Not stalking ya, honest!” funny thing. The smell of her soap/perfume triggered a forgotten memory of playing with a small child who had a toy shop, complete with till and fake tin cans/veg. Random. Had totally forgotten about that afternoon, and the people who I was with, and yeah it was like a reassessment.
Did you get your speedboat going?

Scent triggers are amazing. And seem to hit emotions so much more than visual ones. I just can’t believe how much of this is stored in our brains. Not gone… Just dormant.

I found this quote when I was doing the iching today: “Anyone who monitors his dreams and other images knows that the unconscious is a continuous wellspring of psychic energy. Jung has observed that we are probably dreaming all of the time — the only reason we don’t usually notice this is because the conscious mind is so powerful that the more subtle manifestations of the… Read more »

Where did the vibe of that incredible full moon in saggitarius go? Suffering from a crushing, corrosive case of envy at the moment and have been since Dec-Jan. It’s hideous and very non-me.. Ugh. I get that we use it as fuel for further achievement etc but ugh ugh again. Envy person does all the astro that I struggle with – cancer, Leo, Scorpio. I think.

Is the envy person the narcissist that your ex is marrying? If so, inhale the burned rubber and exhale thanks that you are free of this muggle. Anyone that knowingly marries a grown adult that has a mirror fetish is a bit questionable. I get you on the envy, I remember a little meltdown when an old boyfriend of mine got married. Did I want to marry him? No. But I felt like a non-person as all around me people got their shit together (or so it felt). I suspected (and still do) that he is actually gay and was… Read more »

Yas: definitely more open! Did my research while Mars was rx; actioned as Mars regained Scorpio ground. Coordinated attacks on all fronts & the view from here is *fresh*. My Mars in Scorpio appreciates you, Mars into Sagittarius. And into Capricorn, & Aquarius… then my AC-Jupiter… I heart Mars vibe 🙂

I think this must be the work of (digital) Uranus stationary Rx…it’s too early for it to be Mercury Rx, as the shadow doesn’t kick for another 9 days and Virgo is a pretty high-functioning placement for Mercury. Are you an Aquarius Sun or do you have Uranus as your chart ruler, perhaps? The Aquarians I know have all had mega weird glitches going on the last few days. Or perhaps Uranus rules your 3rd, impacting communications. I have Sun/Uranus myself and just got word of a baby surprise completely out of the blue as Uranus stationed in aspect to… Read more »
