Warp Factor 9 Power Tripping

henry-clarke

“Warp Factor 9” is not a technical term but it IS now. With Jupiter amplifying the voltage/velocity – whatever unit we measure Pluto fuqery in –  power tripping is big-time.

Even people who don’t know they’re doing it are doing it. Maybe it’s all sedate and goo-goo on the surface (because…Jupiter in Libra, the sign of make-nice & project togetherness/serenity no-matter-what) but underneath?

Raw electrical-power-lust/love-turf-war/issues triggering vibe. The classic image theme for Pluto Vibe like this is the glacier gliding along, totally impassive and well, glacially paced…but with hot lava underneath. Try not to get too caught up in the minor mind-fuqery or seethe when you could be scheming!

So how is YOUR Warp Factor 9 Power Tripping going?  Reports coming in suggest that people in hierarchical work situations are having the most challenging time of it while for others it is merely intensifying the Pluto Vibe already well under way. Thoughts?

Having worked alone for the last 2 decades, there is no hierarchy but think that when you have a ‘boss’ you only need answer to them whereas being your own boss means you answer to EVERYONE and if anything goes awry, there is no passing the blame…i wish 🙂

My phone and wallet were stolen last night – if that ain’t a dark manifestation Jupiter (greed, excess egoic actions) square Pluto (theft – other people’s money/ possessions) I don’t know what is!

sphinx

Boo! How disappointing!

Jokerman

All l can think of is that person is a shithead.

Ariel

As my friend put it. it was a ‘crime of desperation’. We caught one of the guys outside & it seemed he got paid 5 euros from my wallet for helping the other guy. I have limited pity for them since I will now have to buy a new phone. I live abroad & have been so reliant on it. ‘Interesting times’, for sure…

Ariel

thanks both sphinx & powderfinger for the moral support – it feels pretty horrible x

I had to LOL reading the weekend’s Pisces horoscope, so ON POINT OMG

Milleunanotte

Let me b really b super clear. I have clients and colleagues whom i both draw lines with and support to my nth degree. There is one colleague who has been a covered up problem for OVER TWENTY YEARS. I have just been working here for 16 months, and accidentally found myself in charge of the area due to a weird snafu so for the last 10 months, i have managed everyone ? tho i am the newest here. I figured i had just a brief time to throw the dice and attempt to get the shittiest shit sorted, crap… Read more »

Oh I would never underestimate a Pisces. I’ve seen too many of them lolling about, flapping their fins and making like Flipper without a care in the world … next thing you know their doing something exasperatingly amazing. I’m sure it’s harder than you all make it look! Ummm … I don’t know what to say about the above except … well HOLY CRAP how do you put up with all that shit and not go completely batshit crazy. Or at the very least develop a nasty drug habit. What exactly do you get out of all this I wonder?… Read more »

milleunanotte

I think that’s why i did it 🙂 The attitude drove me to fury. There’s too much really good work to be done to put up with this roadblock. It’s too small-spirited and careless with others. If the others all have space to shine, then i get to work in a truly inspiring place, because i have lots to learn too, and i’m sick of the time suck and energy suck. That’s what i get out of it! But yes i drink too much lately. After my work and running around today i believe it will be yoga and lounging… Read more »

Your Mars in Cap in the 2nd with all the attendant trines and whistles is a monster!! (In a good way). I have known very flakey Mutables with Mars in Cap and it was the saving grace of their chart and person. The Pisceans I know all have Earth heavy charts and they are the contenders in my family on both sides, the ones who deal with property, the matriarchs and patriarchs. They tend to be a bit like Libra and rule with a squishy glove. Go you Mille! It sounds like you’ve caught the flow of the company flow… Read more »

Thank you! xxx

There are amazing people there, too, and i know i’ve been well looked after. Have to look after self better now 🙂

Invicta

There is a massive warp factor going on and very Plutonic, intense and power trippy. My latest realization is that making any of it about anything except my relationship to reality, and willingness to be present with whatever is going on is a form of denial or projection. But that’s obviously just my take on events unfolding in my own life and my reaction and the reflections on that reaction. I’m feeling a bit like reacting in itself is somewhat overrated. Beyond throwing emails with the words Black Friday in the spam folder, all other reactions feel pointless and as… Read more »

Pegasus

Yes Invicta it’s about how we respond versus how we react. Reacting is way overrated and can be confusing whereas responding takes time and insight.

Omg I just read this post. So on point Mystic! I had such a weird day at work yesterday my lovely Leo boss commented about something that I immediately interpreted as notion of someone else making a personal attack on me and then this snowballed in my mind. suddenly tears started welling up in my eyes that I couldn’t control. Had to go for a long walk to calm down. I don’t often cry, and never at work.. But just couldn’t explain why I was feeling so fragile and yeah slightly irratic. Unfortunately I still supect some stupid mother fuckery… Read more »

Yes, power-tripping in an under-resourced and overworked bureaucratic institution. I lost it earlier in the week but then regrouped. Glacial perma-zen is my new stance. Fuq them.

Yes powertripping at hierarchical uni gig. Peeps doing the not saying hello back, one prof literally trembling with rage as she see me talking to one of the other staff. Person who set exam being two faced. Problem? exam was way too long and around 40% of students are failing it. 35% failed subject last year and still they left the same person in charge and SHE cannot see the issue even throught her 25 page answer guide should have been clue.

This really resonates. Im in the states where I was raised to help my mother who unexpectedly lost her husband. He died from a drug complication of a chemo compaion drug. She is a very establishment respecting Scorp and I am sun, moon and five planet in Aqua rebel. I moved to New Zealand 10 years ago (and now I can remember why!) To spice things up even more, I brought my 12 year old Leo daughter to help out. Needless to say, there is tension. After two weeks, I can actually name her operating style ffor what it is:… Read more »

Scorp v Aqua. I reckon is the biggest fight in the Astro. No wonder you have a sharp relationship with her.

omg screenwriting <3 <3

one of my most favourite ever films (with two grand masters starring to truly occupy the roles) that was a study in manipulation, need, and the unspoken, and in this case relationships of adult women, is Notes on a Scandal.

Sam

also, good luck. Maybe this is an interesting lesson for your Leo 12 y.o. too. a critical time of watching and learning.

Thanks Pi!

I’m still caught up in Neptune land. Jupiter is in my 12th and thanks to the hacks, I just found out my Neptune is parallel to Mars. I need some scheming to figure out how to nurture my dreamy-land even fiercer because my fire air just gets caught up and all the wires and pipes make funny sounds and I start running out of the building before it all combusts. But no actually I have a strong Saturn so I stay in and try to fix it even though I should be running. Speaking of which, the sky is grey… Read more »

Ms.

Taking the Scorpio daily-weekly advice and staying tf out of everyone´s way this week while I scheme my master travel plans.

Unicorn Sparkles

I got this today but on the family and friends front. Stuff that was repressed reared its ugly head. Lava explosion. Walked away thinking “what am I doing!” Tears. More tears. Just need to figure out how to distance my resentment so that another family members day doesn’t become about me. But others are sucking me into the vortex and all I want to do is run. Today has been about finding out how much I’m excluded. And now trying to be ok with that.

Miss kathleen Stone

I get that! How we act when we are triggered is crucial, and yet the pull is in different directions. Sorry youve been excluded… But you can join the amazing crowd of us whe have been forced to forge our own way, too. It still hurts, though, damn it.

Unicorn Sparkles

And the triggers … they’re the long forgotten links to some personal darkness that we think we’ve left behind.
Pulling left sock up, pulling right sock up. Dusting myself off.
Ok then.

milleunanotte

It feels that Jupiter in Sag rising through the multi-conjunct on my Ascendant is always amplified in projection to others, even if they can’t always read what the fq is amplifying to them. 12th house projection onto a Piscean i guess. So “even people who don’t know they are doing it, are doing it” becomes a theme du jour in these astro days. I know you didn’t know, and i know you are coming to terms with it in your own way, and if that means trying to project that onto me, it’s somehow just becoming more clear to you… Read more »

Does that come through in my words? Perhaps it is just the balance i’m trying to hold. I can’t do without all the sides of my prism. Even though i’d sometimes like to just be a sure Fixed type or a Cardinal focused max type.

Feathered Fish

Definitely feeling the hierarchical vibe at work! Have stepped up at work this past year which has felt like a perpetual fire walk and now they want their job back. Feel like my boss would prefer that I stay where I am but putting it on me to force the issue which is not cool. If you want me, you fight for me I say!

I’d much rather scheme than seethe…

Perfect post to read to start my day !! Thx !

it’s so therapeutic isn’t it? 😀

Yes me too! I have been seething for the last few days now I am pulling back and scheming HARD

Ms.

This makes more sense, saturn conjuncting venus-neptune is keeping me from anything vaguely romantic and unscheduled but busy in the gym, which has become something of an iron-based spiritual practice and minor turf war- kicking equipment hogs and phone masturbaters in peak hour. marsinvirgoíng the weight room so everyone can use it. I´m natal pluto 4th and Jupiter is moving to conjunct so this is the real evolution outside of saturns passage. I´m defintely done with selfishness and a whole era of sharing -make do even with my Libra IC but instead of hissing what can´t be changed I am… Read more »

Sam

Also been wondering what the jupiter sweep through 4th will bring after the saturn setup several years ago. That transit (followed by thru 5th) was mammoth for me, in an existential Tower kind of way.
Good luck with the shift. I have a similar perspective about the prev-era homelife ftr.

Ms.

Yes, me too. I remember your IC, pluto is only a bit before mine. I am -really- feeling the need to “expand” my lungs/ grow, I´m feeling quite restrained/drained by my set up- which to be fair was not meant to be forever but I need to live in something that nurtures me and on the level. So, I will try this and get some air. Speaking with people and situation is morphing daily.

Emotions so mild not sure if there are any.The Sagg fire is but embers not even.PLease don’t blow as don’t have the energy for ambition which is my mode with that Cap rising to finance adventures and everything’s an adventure if you say it is.

Ampersand

Hierarchical work situation, yes. The only place in my life where I have to eat crap regularly, but oh that will change. Patience patience, all the Cappy transit activity is helping with the long view, and mars in Aqua helping with the detachment. Do I really want to engage with something that I know I am leaving anyway, eventually? No. I already got myself out of the team Christmas dinner when I heard that people are bringing their kids and partners.

sphinx

Well I have something to confess. I am a cryer. When I excited I may cry. When I am frustrated I cry. When someone tells me their sad story, yes I do cry. Today a lawyer told me the document I had my family sign was not initialled and invalid and I cried (then told him he had the bedside manner of a pitbull). Basically it’s not a normal week unless I have cried on you at some point. Call it empathy, stress or reactive tendencies, but calling it Pluto may work too (Scorpio Moon)! Just thought I’d share that.… Read more »

Sphinxy you should cry all you want. More people should cry. The world is full of sadness that we squash out of shape like foot binding or square watermelons. Free the tears. Also lol at your comment to the lawyer xxxxx

Ali

I second that Pi.

(Square watermelons; funny, funny!)

The pencil-in-teeth rictus smile makes me twitch. “I’m fine! Aren’t you fine?! Yes?! We’re FINE!”

Ugh!

WE KNOW YOU’RE NOT FINE!

Give me authenticity any day. Your tears are a strength, sphinx.

Sounds like you gave the lawyer a swat with your Leo paw.

Hope you’re feeling better.

sphinx

Thanks doll! No rictus here. Lol, but I have lovely greige shell in my wardrobe.

Yeah what is it with ppl in ppl professions?
I think many teachers have difficulties with students because they don’t empathise.

Just a little care goes a long way.

milleunanotte

They have probably experienced people leaning too heavily on them when they should be drawing on the support to lean on themselves. Mind you some are just not empathetic, or in my latest experience, use whatever they have to try to ‘read’ you and push you into position. I’m also experiencing truly supportive people higher up who don’t ma/paternalise me (ok, made up word but it expresses what i mean), yet seem warm and LIGHT, leaving me the space to be quietly thankful for them to Spirit World or Above or Whatever Aetherials, and to get on better with my… Read more »

Don’t worry. Crying has a lot of good benefits like immune system reboot and those lysozymes in your eyes. I’m crier too. I feel worse about the more stoic peeps.

Sam

oh wow, i didn’t know that. fascinating. x

Alouetta

Crying is great. More people should do it. I just watched a doco about Japanese men called ‘handsome weeping boys’ who are hired to help women cry and cry with them. They watch sad videos together and then he dabs at their face with a hanky. The things we do for money.

Gemyogi

Crying is healthy.

Ahhh, so beautiful. I was at a carers forum the other day and if the centrelink representative had stood up and said THAT instead of, “you can have 61 hours of paid respite a year” .. it would have turned out differently for her. She meant, you let us know if you child isn’t with you for 24 hours (at their dad’s for example) and we won’t dock your carer’s allowance!! The snorts of derision from the crowd, ‘yeah, I won’t be making THAT 88 minute call love’. Lol. But this.. these worn out people needed to hear this. Thank… Read more »

I heard that tears actually contain toxins and that it is a cleansing process.

Oo, wow thank you everyone!! Agree that crying is a quick purge that can make for long term resilience. I like to think I bounce back quickly and don’t hold my traumas inside. It could just be attention deficit of course. 😉 This is apart from all the healing energies that I am honoured to be in the presence of when I work. Sometimes I cry when my clients are allowing their pains and joys to be expressed, though they can’t see me doing it as we work with eyes closed. Lately I haven’t been feeling drawn to work as… Read more »

Was dealing wth strange politics at work where legacy of former egos makes my day a little more complicated than it should be, but I’m bottom of the food chain and I have Eris on mc so hey I’ll just make it their problem again lol.
Other than that I think the Jupiter Pluto thing is making me a bit starry eyed breathe in with the rational thinking…out with the excessive daydreaming…I’m sure the handle on reality was somewhere in this wall

Loads of hierarchical shuffling at work/school and the undercurrent of student anxieties are rampant. Everyone thinks it because they are tired but I read Mystic Medusa so I know better.

Agree. Having said that, have just finished marking for the semester and my uni students, and yes they have been tired, are really happy with their results. Haute Pluto at work changing them for the better I hope 🙂
