Dark Mars Moon

Filed in Moon Signs

The Dark Moon is in action Aries, about to cross over some of the most potent rebel forces in the Zodiac – Dionysus, Eris and Uranus. And this as Mars in Mercurial Gemini opposes Lilith in Sagittarius.  It may seem mellow – because of the Lunar Low Ebb before the Moon is New again on Wednesday – but there are a lot of bust-out plans being formulated. And good luck if you’re trying to fence any free spirits in or duty-dirge your way through some tired old liturgy. So how you are going with your rebel scheming?

Whats going on at the moment, all of my married friends are breaking up at the moment … its so so sad. And … there’s a lot of struggling with depression and anxiety in relationships, including mine.

This new moon exact on my Chiron DC which just so happens to be part of my t-square. Saturn is on my Eros and opposing my Venus Jupiter omg I am so over Saturn in Sag. Huge self worth issues, also have financial shit going on like others here. Having Eugene O’Neill The Iceman Cometh in my head not sure if I dare to read it, I’m still trying to get through Antifragile. I love to read but feeling chained to responsibility first. Saturn is so heavy. My relationship is fine despite stress from my own stress I guess my… Read more »

Freaking Saturn is directly on top of my Mars in Sag which explains my chafing at the bit Arrr work irritants and now actual bodily damage- in my job interview I was asked if I understand I needed to be able to pick up 20kg boxes – I guess he looked at my 152cm 46yo body and wanted to be sure and like “sure” which I was I had picked up a million boxes but it has been pretty heavy going in the year I have been there and now after waking up one Saturday with a sore inner elbow… Read more »

OK — so this makes a ton of sense. I had just been wondering yesterday or earlier today what the Astro explanation for the fact that even though I feel hugely thirsty for restorative time, part of me is amped, planning, radically rearranging the furniture etc. And there you go: Aries dark moon.

It’s ironic that, being Mars-ruled during his Gemini transit, I found myself sitting without doing for the longest stretch I have since I can remember (it was all of seven minutes). During this time the fear/message I’ve been shoving down & shutting up for a nice solid decade finally decided to come through. A breaking-of-the-dams moment. I am letting the dark moon do its debris-cleansing while I float around in a cloud of essential oils…

Feeling really emotional and stressed and blah the last few days. 🙁 Overwhelmed, brain stuck in a loop then shutting down completely. Hopefully I feel better with the new moon. It’s exactly trine my Neptune in Cap so I will be careful. o_o Have been feeling more creative urges lately but have to suppress them to handle important stuff and keep logic brain working.

Not to mention trans Pan @ 28 Aries! (conjunct my DC) …. So the Dark Moon will go over Dionysus Eris Uranus Mercury & then will conjunct Pan exactly at the New Moon (& trine exact my Venus). The cosmic potion that i am hoping to extract from this astro junction will be labelled Unction No.666 and it will anoint my 7th House… Or so the maenad within me speaketh. 🙂

*using different username for confidentiality* About a day ago, toxic ex called me to let me know he was filing a restraining order. He has not spoken to me in over a month, and all of this seems ridiculous as it was something that could’ve been solved with an honest coversation (honesty on his end. He had already cheated on me and as is now saying our relationship never even happened.) He said if I agreed to stop contacting him and his ex/gf (who I have a feeling is also being lied to) he’d call it off. But with so… Read more »

The laws around this are different everywhere, but in California, they don’t just give out restraining orders because someone says they want one, there has to be just cause. Also, they cost more like $200, not $2000+, and the person who has a restraining order against them does not go to jail or pay a fine, unless they violate the order, but I get the sense, in your case, that he will not be able to get a restraining order against you in the first place. Meanwhile, I would definitely not contact or respond to him or the ex/gf in… Read more »

Re tracking: I wouldn’t know, but I’ll check. The money he spent struck me odd once I did my research, as is the fact that he claims to have a lawyer yet they never reached out first? He called at around midnight, waking me up from a deep sleep so I had no time to think properly. Otherwise I would not have answered and given him the upper hand. But he has a criminal record and his manipulating and lies will catch up with him. Works out well for me, I want nothing to do with them either. My concern… Read more »

But the call record will show he called you, not the other way around and, again, he can’t get any money out of you over this. In other words, you don’t get money from the person you have a restraining order against, that’s not how those things work. So……I think you’re fine as far as all of that. Just stay no contact.

I meant baiting in person. And good to know he won’t get my money. He’s been enough of a financial drain.
But yes I’m already keeping records starting with that last call. Thanks for the info flowerchild!

flowerchild
flowerchild

For sure, no worries! Stay safe! Try, if you possibly can, to not be around them in person.
You know, it actually sounds to me like YOU could have grounds for getting a restraining order against THEM. If they are baiting you in person, you don’t have to put up with that! That is threatening behavior.
Perhaps call a domestic violence center near you for guidance. They can tell you how to get a restraining order and in some places, women can get one for free against a man who is threatening her.

Very much feeling this vibe. My job – which I used to love and which over the past few years has been subject to a very cliched and horrible corporate takeover complete with endless management speak meant to cover the fact that they’re fucking us over for profit – is slowly sucking the life out of me and I’ve only recently managed to come to the realisation that I have to leave, as well as start standing up for myself and my colleagues rather than just sighing and trying to deal with it. Because of the hours I work, I… Read more »

That is one area I’ve totally stopped pushing myself for the past few years actually- exercise. Back in “the day” I couldn’t imagine going a day without at least one kind of vigorous exercise. Either serious weight training or Pilates, yoga, running or all of the above. These days I barely get out for a slow walk once a week. Sounds dire I know but I just haven’t had the energy for it and tell myself I’m working on more important things that I neglected when I exercised so compulsively.

I’ve honestly never felt so awful in my life as I did yesterday. It was genuinely frightening. I still have quite a bit of work to do for this application before I submit but I’m waiting for responses to some questions I had about what they meant by……”jargon financial speak,,,official jargon ..intimidating wordy words ” and what I ought to put on the form.

And yes during that time I did have to watch my kitchen veggie prep knife too as I could simply have slipped off this mortal helter skelter. I was knackered, just felt beaten by life… But here I am in 2017 smiling and accepting and enjoying a very different life. I do wish you every good thing to come from your… Read more »

It’s strangely comforting to know others have had similar out of character moments and also that such intense anti life urges could result from something as weirdly man made or socially imposed externals as one’s financial situation. I’m not going to pretend that money and how we handle it do not reflect something more primal or significant but what is odd to me is how despite having told myself money wasn’t important to me all my life, how much it affects my idea of who I am and my feelings of self worth or a lack thereof. For me it’s… Read more »

I was a bit worried that if you’re hitting these kinds of very low lows, (and a lot of us have been there and I am feeling for you) that this stress is not exacerbated by putting your body under stress in other ways. As long as whatever food you’re eating is supporting you, whole simple food with all necessary food groups, minerals, nutrients, and not undermining your ability to cope emotionally. Complex carbohydrates assist creation of serotonin in the gut, too, if that helps (you might already know that I guess) so it’s a good reason to roast a… Read more »

Goof point detective and thanks Pi I hear you and i think I’m partly focused on doing this cleanse before I submit because I realise that after I do I will have to watch what I spend on food in a way I never have before. Even my most hardcore minimalist food shopping budget never got close to the levels of frugal required to be under the acceptable allowance in bankruptcy. I’m scared yes, that I’ll have to live on white bread, margarine and jam sandwiches washed down with sugary builders tea infused with repugnant dairy and similar horrors for… Read more »

Keep going!! My boyfriend filed for bankruptcy a few years ago (before we got together) and once it all actually went through it saved his life. He was able to keep his apartment and afford food again and built back from there. When I talk to him about it I can tell how traumatic it was for him to go from a competent business owner to everything falling apart through no real fault of his own…just changes in the economy and a business sensitive to it. He started doing irrational and desperate things and his one episode of suicidal thoughts… Read more »

Oh hey Rache! Thanks so much for saying that. Yeah, I think that’s part of why I’m “talking” about these subjects every chance I get because the worst thing to me is that so many people have these moments and yet we see ourselves as weak for having them. I realised how I’ve on some levels been in denial about having depression and anxiety for the longest time because something about owning up to it feeling shameful. So I’d pretend to myself it wasn’t real. Oh yeah, feelings, who needs eh right? But all of it, bankruptcy for instance is… Read more »

The system that may make you feel uncomfortable is meant to be a “fresh start”. It cannot be easy seeing your current situation there on paper (even if electronically). I commend you for facing the process head on. That is taking charge of your finances and your life. You are learning and growing on many levels. You are not “bad” for filing. You are taking legal, responsible action to move your life forward. Learn about money and money attitudes. Go forth and prosper. – There’s my Cap Moon bit.

Hey Invicta, i too in really dark hours (not light/day related) get those suicidal things come up. I’m well pleased (though not quite at the time) that it scares me. It doesn’t happen often or regularly. Just in those times. But i cling hard to the fact it scares me, and that i immediately think of real-life ramifications. Then i know it’s an URGE, an emotion, and almost like contemplating the last resort, the END leads to trudging steps of re-birth. These include: keep up my baby steps, in tears or whatever if i must; self care, whatever little things… Read more »

avoid the moon void [if there is one upcoming around that time] to submit something you want action on.

re report. i have found that just writing stream of consiousness or ‘write-as-you-speak’ can help if you’re stuck on the language. or just “write one sentence” or “block (frame up) the hardest paragraph” or just a list of topics you want to cover, or whatever. whichever way makes it easiest for you to put pen to paper so to speak.
