The Aries Bedside Lamp

Filed in Astro-Decor, Aries

Processed with VSCO with c3 preset

WOW, Aries Feng Shui.Β  My Double Aries subscriber – Sun + Mars for a good time – just sent me this pic of her newly zooshed up bedside table situation. It is super elementally balanced and of course, the Ram is just rad. It is from American Target.Β  The only other one in the range is an Armadillo which, sorry, doesn’t seem quite so rich in significance.

When you’re not experiencing the Existential Crunch that is Saturn square Neptune (dissipating after this weekend), what would you do to make your bedside scenario supportive and magic while you sleep?

Am waaaaaiiiitttting to move (come on Saturn in my 4th) and planning my new flat lay out – almost all my things are stored away so will be like Christmas when I can finally unpack – since December 23 2015 – Astro is REAL As a mega conj Virgo Libra who designs soft furnishings my home space has to feel beautiful with a lot of balance, light and air. I have a bit of midcentury furniture and a lot of wood and will be setting up my shell lamps and soft lighting in the hopes of romance : ) My… Read more »

Just recently upgraded all bedroom furniture. Locally made bed, night stands and a huge wardrobe we are using as a dresser. Saturn in the second square Neptune in the fourth meant I couldn’t deal with our bedroom situ any more and we finally bought the nice set we’ve had our eyes on for a few years. I’m awful about my nightstand, usually it is piled high with books, magazines, and journals. With the new furniture, it’s now all organized in drawers with just a lil bit on top. A David Bowie mag I bought when he died and a notebook.… Read more »

my room is a cramped cell with nowhere to put anything and nothing special in it other than a tiny flamingo neon lamp and sheet of matte magenta acrylic that I use to alter the light to soft and girly when living between a library and a uranian five planet gemini gets too much for this fish ie all the time. north node in libra 4th house, a home / space of my own seems like an impossible dream right now. today is hard. : (

It’s ok Pi, sorry to hear of your struggling. Whinge away. I like the sound of the flamingo.

I have a feeling that somewhere in the Universe, an Armadillo of Significance is barking, or whatever armadillos do.

The bedroom is a bit spartan compared to the rest of the house now I think of it. Off white and sage green. Just a bed and a dresser. It’s a huge room, the massivest bedroom I’ve ever had and I don’t know quite what to do with it, I prefer a small room, I’m a small person. Anything I put in there looks a bit stupid and dinky. Even the king size bed looks dollhouse. The other rooms are more modestly proportioned and all reds, oranges and hot pinks with lots of magnolia to even it out (can you… Read more »

Ooh make your lamp yr avatar when you do it! I would love to see!

if I had a big bedroom I would love to have a sofa, chaise longe or 2 chairs and a small table – it seems so luxurious to be able to sit in one’s room as well as sleep…

Ampersand
Ampersand

I would love that too, it’s a strange room and because of the configuration of the door, window and chimney breast it means I am really limited to what I can have in there, it’s an odd space. I’d like a big armchair by the window looking out to sea but the bed is in the way and can’t go anywhere else. We tried it as a living room but that didn’t work either. Weird feng shui in there.

Ampersand

I will! I don’t know how to change my avatar, any idea? I’ve been into my account but couldn’t see anything obvious.

o to be able to see the sea! I so envy you ! There’s advice on how to change the Avatar on the account page I think but I couldn’t be bothered with the hassle

just over the past couple of days i have been daydreaming of things to do with our bedroom. we bought this house a year ago and everything was pretty newly done, so we haven’t had to paint, etc, but i have realised that the bedroom is really lacking mojo. no decorations, really cute but old hand-me-down quilt, neutral colouring, bland curtains. excited to jazz it up with some real solid gemini vibes, to satisfy my moon-eros-psyche in gem and my partner’s gem stellium. i need more lamps everywhere (would slay for a lion’s head…anything), and have been on the lookout… Read more »

I share my bed with my 2 year old until she’s willing to join her sister in the room next to mine. So I can only keep a plastic water bottle next to my bed. Even my glasses need to go up high on a tall drawer unit. But yesterday I stuck 2 reiki posters on the side of those drawers to remind me to do a self treatment morning and night.

I almost bought this for my sister, then realized it was a ram and not a goat! I have a cool little bull statue thing I got there for my Toro moon awhile back.

Spotted gum bedside table with glass lamp and salt lamp and just books.. Lots of books. πŸ˜‰

I’ve had a salt lamp there (birthday present) which landed just after the start of the square shenanigans. Since last Friday, a lump of rose quartz gifted to me by someone close. And at the moment it’s thick with dust. Does any one else’s house seem to just generate dust for no particular reason? (I’d get it if we lived somewhere dusty – this is just OTT!)

Do you have carpet? Fuqing carpet, man: I’m certified allergic to dust & my nose gets irritated with every step. Then it settles on all the gd furniture. I am so close to grabbing my utility knife & ripping it all out!

SleepfulInBrisvegas
SleepfulInBrisvegas

Mostly floorboards. We are down to two rooms with carpet now. Which when we have the chance will be ripped up – beautiful polished boards beneath.

But -ugh- the floors are full of dust and vileness. I go to my friends house and there’s no dust. So unfair. Who the fuck wants to waste their life dusting stuff that’s just going to be covered in dust again. I guess I can be thankful I am not allergic.

My recc is get a Roomba! I loved mine until my crazy ass mother moved in and she kept kicking it off its recharging port killing the poor thing after a few months of that. But barring some idiot doing that, it lightly sweeps floors daily on its own and then goes to recharge without you telling it to do so!

Books on both bedside tables! Georgia O’Keefe, D’Aulaire’s Greek Myths, The Golden Bough, The Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon on one side and on the other I have Twyla Tharp’s The Creative Habit, A Ring of Endless Light by Madeleine L’Engle, the Al-Anon blue book, Toni Morrison’s Beloved, then my journal. Never thought of this as a sacred setup but now it all seems very obvious, especially taking my Gem Moon in the 4th House. It’s not like I’m actually in the process of reading any of these books! I’ve been on the lookout for the right set of bedside… Read more »

I have my favorite dream stones, dream journal and a bottle of organic lavender pillow spray on my bedside table. Also I have my new favorite tarot deck, The Golden Thread deck.

Mystic, have you seen that deck yet? It’s stunning. The black and gold design makes my Pluto in Libra 1st house so happy!

ooh. bedroom. Mine is light moss green with white linen drapes, but black out..total fucking darkness shades I can use at night to make sure i sleep uninterrupted. I’ve got a white set of bi-fold louvered doors that i mounted as headboard afixed to a wall. I can hang things like artworks or LED lights on hooks off of the louvers.

Ampersand
Ampersand

Yours sounds like mine, only instead of louvre doors for a headboard, I have an old radiator cover, which is llike a screen of light wood fretwork in Islamic style painted off white, and I can hang thing on it. Lights you say? What a great idea. Thanks for that!

Annica

I love those old style radiator covers too! Pure stylish genius!

I love those tiny twinkle lights! Sometimes i think it looks too “dorm room”. But i need organization by the bed or the nightstand starts to look crazy.

My saturn rising comes across, among other things, as a disliking superfluous (to me ofc) deco so my bedroom and my bedside are pretty empty. Plus, second house in Pisces = terrible impulse to give away all possessions and live with just a flour sack for clothing. The furniture is all dark wood and white, though, and I have a couple candles in honor of my Sag stellium+Lilith in Aries.

My bedroom is aubergine and scarlet with glitter in the paint..black curtains embossed with hemlock seed heads..Victorian over mantle with all kinds of magic stuff on my altar. A Voodoo owl bad shaped out of sequins to keep the evil spirits away and my very very old katchins dolls with their corn…my bed is extra king size Chinese style (block) with black and red sheets and duvet, and on the wall above my bed a shield with owl feathers hanging from it for dreaming. On the left a 50s mirror ball showcase with all my Elizbeth Taylor and Richard Burton… Read more »

If I look out of my window and strain my neck a little to the left, I can see the place that Richard Burton was born. I am fascinated too. Crazy synastry between him and Taylor.

Catherine

yes indeed so passionate. They couldn’t talk to each other so they hit each other…that is so cool! So you’re in the little village where he was born (not Port Talbot where he grew up) ? I have a beautiful original painting of Richard done by a local artist who knew the family, its from a private photo of him. She sent it to me as a Christmas present and addressed it to Elizabeth taylor lol. I did look a lot like her in younger sat and was just as wild and tricky, but my eyes are green . Richard’s… Read more »

I’m up on a hill overlooking the valley, getting hit by the fart fumes of Port Talbot. Yum! I don’t know that artist but will check her out, that was such a nice thing to do! I would sell my Gran to look even a little bit like Taylor. As a kid I was obsessed with Burton’s narration of War of the Worlds, what a voice, oh my god.

Wow! I was just sitting here thinking fuq my bedroom needs zooshed up, seriously! It needs new window treatments, different lighting, a tapestry for the wall, a tapestry for the bed, & a new mattress– oh & some plants lol. Basically, it needs everything. All I need is some coin to make it happen.

Being mega earth I have crystal and chrome lamps and His and Hers gem gardens. My side has pink stones, his has green – both govern heart energy. I have a Shiva Lingam on his side on a literal throne – phallus worship indeed, lol. I also have framed erotic photo collages above each side lamp. My side has closeups of men anc his has couples and symbolic yonis via flower and watercolor portraits. I keep the leather…accoutrements on diamante door hangers. Just so we all know who runs the coralle… :p There are other erotic touches but all tasteful.… Read more »

This made me think of my big altar placements (1 bdrm, 1 living rm), & they’re both on North walls. I’m Sagg MC-North Node-Neptune (sq Jupiter), is what i was thinking. And yes, i do keep a big hunk of rose quartz on my bedroom altar. I’m not dead πŸ˜›

I have smaller homages on other wall directions, but my East-West axis needs some new life. Getting a fish soon. A red one.

Thinking of you often, katycoyote. Stay strong x

I once gifted a Ram relative with a Ram bracelet. I have strategic Bulls around the house. When I go to tue art galleries and see cow art I cop the magnets – I have Lichtenstein magnets and coasters. I have a small black Bull on my desk (will always regret not buying its white twin) and plan to get some Hathor motifs. I bought a large brass for my Kataka son and he has a door sign that reads “An old Crab lives here.” His bedroom has a “winter magic” theme with aurora borealis throw pillows and his sheets… Read more »

Your boy’s room sounds fab! I hung my best, most-cherished mandala tapestry in my boy’s room; it’s green mostly, with blue, black & a tiny bit of red throughout the circle. He’s Cap Sun-Venus, Gem Moon, Kataka AC. He’s always liked it.
