1999

1999 – the subject of a Prince song, the year that the Euro was established, Columbine, John Kennedy Jr going and so much more. It’s super resonant now, via a variety of astral cues – the Nodes again in Leo/Aquarius, Lilith back in Sagittarius, an echo in Eclipse Season even.  Here are some images from then to help prompt possibly useful psychic-nostalgia-flashes on a Dark Moon in Aquarius…and the Moon hovering around the point Uranus was at mid-1999.  GROK THE OMEN FLOW.

I looked up my progressed chart for Sept 98 when the nodes were here, my progressed moon was at 8 pisces. Perfect.

Mercury joined chiron then.
Yep.yes.and yes. Makes sense

Tried lumosity today.

Scored a whopping 29% of people my age. Because 1999. But I’m wise. I’m wise.im wise.

I remember 1999 — when on the 1st of January 2000 the world was going to end, all computers would malfunction, planes fall from the sky, etc. etc.

I was 35 and skeptical. It was an anti-climax, nothing happened. Except the tech people who prepped companies for ‘2K’ made a lot of money.

I had apocalyptic warnings growing up in the 80s as well. WW3 was imminent… nuclear holocaust! there have been end of the world predictions for ever. Nostradamus — evangical christians, etc.

At that time i DID party like it was 1999. I think it was the last time i totally DID get shitfaced on champagne, the other times were just practise. ******sigh******’if i could turn back time…….:-) The magnificent house of light i lived in had 800 clear glass & quite large squares in the open living area. Had a clear glass large table that when it was a clear night, the moon shone directly onto the glass and reflected. At a dinner gathering would change chairs (not musical ones, dammit) so as each person had the moon on their positions.… Read more »

That eclipse experience unfiltered …dream-like! How fabulous.
The other day I saw a house that had a glass strip all the way up the walls and the roof so you have uninterrupted sky views 24/7, it seems the ultimate luxury to be warm and able to stargaze.
There is a time to reap and time to sow,
A time to party like it’s 1999
And a time to rest like it’s …the dark moon the night before the eclipse ? 🙂

It was a devasting year for me, I came to the realisation that my life wasn’t going to go according to plan. The man I had loved and stayed with for eight years moved in some younger version of me with huge breasts who he had seeing on the sly. Took me a while to get over that. She got pregnant within the year and he married her years later.

A very painful year – not feeling a resonance with now, and not looking to.

Not one of my better years either Kym.

The best I can say for is that I survived, I didn’t quit on those things/people (I felt) that it was important not to quit on. I do sometimes wonder what would have happened to us all if I had cut and run…

Hmmm! June 1999 was when I left the dude I was married to, moved from Chicago to Arizona and bought a topless jeep, and got the job that gives me an easy, viable career (except for that whole dot com bust thing). I was 26. Pluto was conjunct my IC and Neptune. Lilith exact opposite my Sun/Moon. Ooo, which means that’s where she is now!! I’ve been in deep nesting mode, but if this is the kind of shake up vibe that’s out there, I’m so up for it, and curious to see how in shows up this time around!

DevotedGemMM Member

This time around being Eclipse and Neptune conjunct my DC, and Uranus and Mars conjunct my Venus in opposition to my Uranus. Feels like total identity dissolution – in a really good way.

Not even kidding: This morning at yoga my teacher had some tech issues so had to resort to using Ye Olde CD. The album? Moby’s “Play”, from – you guessed it – 1999.

*cue Twilight Zone music*

The Nodes were also in these signs from 2008-2009 as well, albeit flipped with the NN in Aquarius & SN in Leo.

My memory of that was a time when nothing felt quite right and I felt clunky and out of place, as though I was meant to be somewhere else the whole time. Confused and awkward, also a bit lonely I think. Just like now lol except I seem to have even fewer friends. Oh wow. Can this please not be a repeat of those years (unless I can have my dewy skin back too).

Oh Pi, you know i insist you HAVE FUN. And look how fabulous you are now, it was just making you…. you. To be so compassionate as you are, i think you have to be at something’s mercy for a while to gain empathy or experience the dark night of the soul, even if it occurs again and again as it is want to do if you think deeply and feel the difference between those states of mind and being in a contented place.Happiness is fleeting contentment lasts.

OH Yes! Girl Interrupted was so the jam then. I was 22, living/working as a paid artist in a community setting and go-go dancing for fun back then. So much more liberated then. Maybe it was the era, maybe the astro, or a bit of astrocartography affect. Definitely would like some of that vim + vigor back, without the hangover of course. Maybe this New Moon Eclipse will help?

Omg yes! The year of the Matrix! I was obsessed with it and went to the cinema in Alice Springs three times to watch it. Alice was even more alien than the concept of living in a hologram, but yes, my favourite Keanu and Wachovski sibling movie.

Big year for me and my family. We moved permanently to London, Nov 1999. This post has taken me down memory lane for sure.

sphinxMM Member

The year I dumped my life – my boyfriend, clothes, address book and left to another city with my wallet and passport.

Had a completely new life with charismatic Latin boy within 6 months and was backpacking around Asia.

Pivotal time and I question the pivots looking back, but I wasn’t as strong then.

Well, THIS, bcause love just made you do it, without fear of fetishising or any other political dynamic. When we r older and more settled down, should our sense of exploration change, to let in the fears and resistance of the loved one who can so easily label me/us other or exotic? Should that dynamic be accepted in a past (not really so long ago) context, without a fully aware realisation of what that actually shows both parties about race dynamics, usually not a salient issue until it happens to them? *Asking for a so-called mixed race friend brought up… Read more »

Hello Millie x Should our sense of exploration change? It becomes more of an inner exploration as the physical is less easy. It’s the old ‘toss on a Tee & The Right Jeans and footwear, brush the hair & out the door doesn’t cut the cake. For me it’s a military operation to go further than to the local village! Mind too full of what could go wrong, what do i need instead of the thrill of destination, as i say ‘it took courage to do some of the things i wish i hadn’t’ but that may not apply to… Read more »

Completely amazed, Pegasus. It’s strange to hear you say you’re in place. I think you travel far and wide still. This idea of your Departure seriously has me in awe. Such a cool and gracious way of thinking of it!

Mind too full of what could go wrong happens to me now sometimes, though. I really hate that mind, but perhaps it is just safety precautions gone too fearfully far.

I really need to make some changes, Pegasus. You’re very much reminding me. Thank you xx

I hesitated writing Latin, but he is after all, the product of a space, time and culture as am I. He objectified me to an extent while I was prepared to accept him in every way as a unique creature. He disappointed me culturally acceptable to him fashions. Also he stopped growing and projected his hatred of the elite onto me. Eg you are white and therefore you don’t understand me and my country’s suffering at the hands of the man, with your white privilege etc. I was innocent and willing to learn about myself and the world. He shut… Read more »

The year I graduated college. Pluto went right up to one degree of my moon and then went retrograde. Uranus crossed my IC. Inner tension, rebel forces, throwing away the map. But when Pluto came back later to devour my moon, it all changed again.

Sort of missed it. I’d had my daughter husband had left and I was mid crisis I suppose. I was with my to be next husband but it’s a blur of house moves and new relationships and step kids and ex partners! It’s a blur. But it seems nothing like now. I’m just waiting now for a few things to simply shift then I can start a fresh… again.

1999 was such a pivotal year for me! I was 17 and in year 12. HSC is never easy but I had sense back then about my limits – studying only four subject areas, picking a degree I liked rather than a prestigious one with a higher entrance score, having heaps of fun being in two school bands and at my dancing classes. Getting my licence and the freedom that means in country Australia. Counting down the months til uni and leaving home (I started in year 11 lol). Getting a scholarship and a place in uni.

Me too. I was ten years old, very confident and popular at school, won a bunch of awards at the end of year. Was about to start Intermediate school and had SUCH high hopes. The next year, in fact, I was bullied badly and spiralled into severe depression and anxiety. 1999 was probably the last time I felt truly happy and care-free.

Or realised our basic math was up sh* creek. Maybe that was 2000. I knew my arithmetic was shit before that, and still make my clients do sums with me to check my figures. I’m not supposed to, probably, but i am supposed to be accountable, so ftw.

I naively trusted that programmers had more refined math understanding than i did, and still do. Now i also realise that data peeps need context even tho they don’t like it, so i do that smiling battle with them. It’s SOOOOO FRQN HARD but its a soft skill (thanks Mars square everything).
