There Comes The Strangest Moment

Filed in Sagacious

Russell Cobb

This Moon, in sharp opposition to Mars-Pluto in Capricorn, is a bit much.

Vulnerability and the desire to cocoon at war with your fresh forged iron resolve.

But this…by Kate Light…just this.

Your heart’s in retrograde. You simply have no choice.
Things people told you turn out to be true.
You have to hold that body, hear that voice.
You’d have sworn no one knew more than you.

How many people thought you’d never change?
But here you have. It’s beautiful. It’s strange.

My Moon-Saturn conjunction and venus all in Kataka activated a river of tears ang guilt. It’s been years since I’ve felt this low. For a moment. Maybe for 15 min. Then I remembered. I am visibly getting stronger. I feel it. Where it matters.

I’ve just written pages on this in my diary. This was exactly what I needed to hear today. I’ve felt as though I’ve just finished the second act of a three act play. Waiting for the final act to begin. But oh – heart in retrograde. So much better. All retrograde have at least three passes over the same point. Heart is waiting for the third part. For us to finally get it right. And I’ve been told to trust in the impossible. That what I thought dead was not. And what comes if it will be a surprise. In… Read more »

Third pass. Yes. On the third day…

I asked how long intermission would be. I got 42 – not sure it that equates to 42 days or weeks. Have calculated both and will see if it aligns with the third act starting.

Saoirse Kirke

42 year?

Pi

yes!!! on a post it note (my current brain system) i wrote about 3 days ago: three-act play
this year feels like the Second Act.

SleepfulInBrisvegas
SleepfulInBrisvegas

I think it possibly has larger application than what I am just looking at. In my Mystic consult from last year it said this was the transition year between two different eras and yeah, it has that feeling. It’s a relief that I am not the only one feeling it.

Pi
Pi

yes. i wrote that little note in the context of the otherworldly cap, so yes ..

there is a book called ‘How we are’ about how we change, he writes this in terms of a three act process as well. lovely writing. very kind and human.

The mind palace made of Post its. Love it.

SleepfulInBrisvegas

I have a beautiful mind palace book gifted to me by my soul sister, but I never got it. When I worked out I have aphantasia it made total sense why I couldn’t ‘get’ the concept. It requires visualisation skills.

I’m trying to imagine now, house of cards made of post it notes.

Pi

Cool idea…

Saoirse Kirke
Saoirse Kirke

I’d never heard of that! Wow that’s interesting!. My mind palace isn’t visual. It’s somehow my body in space connects to things. I don’t understand it as it had been lost to “the drugs” but it’s less visual

Pi
Pi

it is kind of circumstantial… my usual notebook is less to hand as i am surrounded by Texts.. and post it notes are subtle way to record at work because wouldntncha know it, my brain gets busy when i should be staring at an email inbox. little drifts of ideas and notes to myself in all my bags and pockets. my summer project is to collate these into the Book Of Pi.

Pandora

Second act? Sort of.
Certainly so for me – I ended something big last year.
This year: a 9 universal year when we divest ourselves of (read: grieve trauma, process rage) all the shit we aren’t meant to take into the
1 universal year (The Fool) of truly new beginnings next year.

FireTryin'

The Second Act–when it seems our heroine may not make it. When the odds are against her. When betrayals become apparent. When all seems lost….oh my effing god, is that NOT this year?

Thanks all for the very apt metaphor.

wow, thank you for the proper dramatic context! helpful … x

I have 10 degrees Kataka Ascendant, Mars/Pluto are transiting my 7th.

Yeah, I’ve been swinging between getting a lot done, showing up, biz networking, and then dealing with feeling very fragile, crying a bit, feeling very angry and processing a lot internally and just wanting to stay home. I’m a total split right now, totally different in private than public. I’m feeling exhausted, too. Way too much emotion moving through me, and I hope it moves through and OUT, because apparently it’s been long stuck inside me..

SleepfulInBrisvegas
SleepfulInBrisvegas

I hear you on the exhaustion. I’ve had several nights where I wanted to curl up in a ball and cry – nothing left to do dishes or cook dinner or any of those things. I’ve had to rethink all the external stuff in line with the internal stuff.

I dreamed last night of a young, potent, psychic woman standing on a jetty near the ocean. A thunderstorm rolled in over her and she was engulfed in dark clouds and lightening. She lit up, and as the storm moved on she stood, with sparks in her hair and on her face.

This Moon has just made the scheissenfest of the past 10 daze feel more yucky. The amount of issues lve HAD to fight, am fighting, would place this equal 2nd to the 12-15 ZZ.

Omg ALL OF THIS. Pluto and Mars sitting right on my AC. Feeling a lot of anger hatred at the world/myself. Trying to channel all of this volatile energy into a new diet and fitness regime. I’ve always been chubby and have basically been on a diet ever I realized that I would one day grow up and be a woman and this would be an issue. 15 years later and I’ve now got 20kg to lose.

No, you’re not shallow, you just want to feel good about yourself. Mind, spirit and body, the holy trinity.

Your second fear, if you get thin and get attention, what does that say about you as a person now? I think if you are not happy in yourself it is written all over your face whether you are size 6 or 24 or whatever. And so people may not give you attention because they sense… Read more »

Dreamyj, as some one who was super athletic (dancer) til illness put me in bed for couple of yrs, I can honestly say I get far more, and more positive, attention from the opposite sex now at 17kg heavier…and that’s with extra age too. Im convinced its because I am actually happy now – happy that my body actually functions again – and it shows, rather than being obsessed with training and maintaining the “ideal” figure. Also, the kinds of guys I attracted at that size were basically douches and only interested in how I made them look. If you… Read more »

Ampersand’s response is spot on. I haven’t tried to lose weight, but I’ve been a physical trainer for women. There’s a lot of different motivations and insecurity when women start something physically demanding. Some get into it to lose weight or to meet a fitness goal, and that’s fine, but the ones who end up staying with it the longest are those who forget about what they came for and start to revel in what they can do with their body. I hope you find something you love doing for the sake of doing it and feeling strong. That’s the… Read more »

I would agree with this. I started with a PT as I was desperate to lose the 20kg I had put on post-divorce and menopause. I was always ‘the thin one’ who didn’t need to watch food intake or whatever. A few life changes plus ageing and bam, I was suddenly fat to the point where my GP told me I needed to lose weight. I would stand in change rooms and cry because I just did not recognise the heavy woman in the mirror. The weight became a symbol of all my ‘failures’ – marriage, love, work etc etc.… Read more »

Yes! Liking the people you train with makes a huge difference. It becomes a social event to train and pretty soon you start to look forward to it and it becomes a part of your life instead of a wearisome obligation. Follow your bliss and you’ll often find your people as well.

I have only had 4 relships and every one of them has felt bad about being [self-perceived] to be small-breasted (did a Kat Sun & Asc just write that?). It seemed not to matter to me. In fact it was (is?) the ideal woman that scares me.

Oh dreamyj! Shitty self image feels so real. It’s not your body size holding you back. That Capricorn stuff can be SO DAMN HARSH on ourselves I know it. fear and self dislike is hard to weed out .

The quote on vulnerability really hit the nail on the head!!! (Coming from a Scorpio asc, Pisces sun, Libra moon.) I felt compelled to write an entry in my journal, about the sudden realization of what I feel is holding me back most, and causes me much pain….The last little paragraph I wrote pretty much sums the whole thing up: “At least I can say I’ve repeated that cycle enough times to have reached the point where I now feel free.
