A Moon in Scorpio Competition!

Filed in Astro Gaga

Cast yourself. You are the spell.
—  T. Thorn Coyle, Evolutionary Witchcraft

I totally agree with that. In fact, i think i tweeted something similar recently, not realizing it was a thing. And anyway, here is a competition.

The cover-woman of this Seventies Occult Magazine is your AUNT. What is her name, what is her sign, what was her life like? Did she have hobbies, husbands, wives, children, a penthouse, a chain of nudist colonies? Did she conceal a mood disorder behind the trappings of Seventies suburban witchcraft or was she WAY ahead of her time and she actually built a computer behind her shrine?

Did the other ladies in her circle think she was a bitch or did she go straight from high school top mean girl into being Queen of her Coven?  Or was she just trying to project ‘witch vibe’ to get this cover gig in the hope it would lead to something more rad but then she got possessed by a bored time-traveling Babylonian priestess?

Do not hold back. Entries in the Comments please and the three winners will be announced when the Moon gets to Sagittarius.

The prizes:  A Mercurial Key Ring

An Astro-Flash

A Wealth Wallet.

Part two is a ripper, filled with bedtime stories………. Please meet “Suki” my aunt in all her witchy girl glory. Born with Sagittarius and a Scorpio moon Her English upper- class upbringing gave her no room to spread those desires she so haughtily repressed. Until one cold Winter’s evening, whilst minimally dressed, Robinson Crusoe came to her plight, offering his best. He was shabbily dressed and… Read more »

Aunt Lydia was born at the bottom of a well, during the dark moon, bearing a Scorpionic 12th house stellium encompassing Sun, Venus, Saturn and Mars, and the mark of the beast. That night was so cold even the rocks huddled together. Aunt Lydia, Aunt Lydia turning in the dark, eyes opening, eyes shut, wings that flap overhead, the sudden gust of wind in an otherwise still night. Aunt Lydia who I turned to when I thought I’d lost my heart and my way. Aunt Lydia gave me the answer: In place of my heart a lock with no key,… Read more »

A month in, and Delilah was already plotting her getaway from the suburbs.
There were only so many milquetoast swinger seance ouiji parties one could throw for fuqs sake. With Jupiter on her Scorpio north node she realized suddenly that there was not a moment to waste. She packed a light bag of caftans and waltzed her suede knee high boots to the airport. Next stop Tehran.

Ha, you’ve managed to stumble upon the family secret – this is Aunt Morticia. Auntie Em as we lovingly call her is my mother’s oldest sister and a 33rd degree Illuminati witch; the High Priestess of all the East Coast chapters and a close personal friend of Kris Kardashian. During the 1960’s when she was in her late teens, she spent time with a band of Romanian gypsies who had taken up temporary residence in the ruins of Vlad The Impaler’s old castle nested high in the Carpathian Mountains, She has always spoken so fondly of her time with them… Read more »

LOL, I hoped my fellow PIABs would catch that reference! 😉 This may be the matchmaker Libra in me talking, but just *look* at them; Morticia & Rex were clearly *made* for each other! 😀 It’s only natural their storylines would overlap at some point, yes?

I have no earthly idea how my relations keep finding their way onto this site, but I suppose stranger things have happened. 😉

This is completely believable! I also love that her name is Morticia– she does look like the matriarch of the Addams family– more Carolyn Jones than Anjelica Huston, though.

Catherine – less an Aunt of mine than a friend of my father’s who knew a water sign kid when she saw one, had a fledgling raven to attend to back at home, and was starting to feel more than an edge of impatience. The team at this magazine shoot were getting on her nerves. Greg, the production assistant, kept staring at her chest despite his feeble best efforts, and expecting her to laugh along with it when she caught him looking. The man was about 45 but he was behaving like a 13 year old. The shoot director kept… Read more »

Her name was Lilith, and she wasn’t really my aunt. She was my Uncle Adam’s first wife. She was rather wild, which was always a great source of contention between her and my uncle. They were only husband and wife for a short time, but I remember her being the life of the party at family gatherings. Much to my mother’s consternation, she was the first person to introduce me to the arts of makeup and seducing boys. She was the kind of woman who made wives hold on to their husbands a little more tightly. She loved her freedom,… Read more »

She was an artist who made mostly pottery and jewelry. When I was born, she made me a pendant–a tiny pair of wings–with a note that read “Fly, little one. May you always be on top.” My mother, for whatever reason, would never let me wear them until I got older. I guess she was afraid that Lilith would be a bad influence on me, and that too would grow up to be wild.

This is my aunty Agnes or Aggy to us. Aggy’s a Triple Conjunct Sun, Moon and Venus Leo all in the 5th House. She was pretty young when she did the photo shoot for this magazine. She got drunk one night after a few too many moets at a family dinner and told me about it. She’d met this hot photographer while she was out at a party on the beach one night. They drank shots of flaming Black Sambucas that he lit with his gold zippo lighter. She said she noticed the lighter had some kind of witchcraft symbol… Read more »

Sandra liked older men. But she was always ashamed of it. When she was a schoolgirl, and her mom dressed her, it was always in cardigans and below-the-knee plaid skirts. She hated every minute if it, and more than anything longer to be a woman worshiped by the men she fantasized about. On a spontaneous road-trip to Hollyweird, one such man caught her eye. He was handsome, rocking an afro, a mustache and not too many gray hairs. He held a camera up and asked if he could take her picture. She smiled her sweetest smile and he let a… Read more »

My Antie Sylvie was born Sylvie Fox Smith in Duluth, MN at 1:48 AM on February 17, 1955. Her Aquarius sun tense in hard opposition to Pluto in Leo. Her lessons were those of her generation: excess, greed and wanton selfishness. Sylvie was a school nurse by day; buttoned up in peter pan blouses and cat-eyed liner. In the evenings she would drink absinthe and moodily throw cards until her phone rang. She was involved in several swingers clubs in town and her favorite for releasing her from her 12th house demons had a secret society fetish. Sylvie liked dressing… Read more »

Jelena Dragkovic, born in Salem, Oregon on a cold winter morning in March, was never what you could call conventional. Her best friend as a small child was Spike, a stray cat she protected from less compassionate children who liked to throw rocks at the ugly creature. Despite having two older siblings she preferred the company of animals to people, and once she was able to live on her own she took in strays of all kinds, animal and human. Her parents didn’t talk about their past but Jelena knew they had escaped Serbia after WWII, the only proof being… Read more »

Jelena was a multiple conjunct Virgo woman! I worked as the chief editor at New Direction and she sent numerous emails to take down her photo because of the writing. She terrorized the magazine and the writers until it was one day magically shut down.

My Aunty Renee, her real name was Raylene, which she loathed, and her brothers always called her Sunshine, which she also loathed. As a teen in the late 60’s, with Uranus opposing her Pisces Sun, she decided to be Renee. Pluto followed the same transit a few years later and she morphed into a new persona. With Scorpio Moon & Ascendent and Leo MC she was a gentle and charming child, though with a tendency to pouting sulks.These tactics were replaced by a slightly sinister seductive charm and guile, and a sharp sarcastic wit. She flattered those who pleased her… Read more »

I found my aunt through ancestry.com, well sort of. You see, I had Pluto transiting my 4th house cusp. I didn’t know the impending transformational doom I would endure because of a transit to my house of ancestors. I should’ve known better as the ruler of my fourth falls into my 12th house. You know, the house of karmic debt! And tie that in with a Saturn return in Saggo and I should have known that I was about to go through the kind of karmic hell we all call a real bitch. As an Aries, I have to admit… Read more »

You heard about my crazy Aunt Fanny!? You know the Cancerian one with Gem Rising and moon in Scorpio? Acid tongue. She made a living bootlegging microdot acid trips in peppercorn grinders carved to look like Easter Island heads to dance parties across the world, until she came across a shaman in the Amazon, who taught her about plants of the jungle. Fanny it turns out, was the first incarnation in this dimension of a genius alien overlord whose people have been trying to contact humans over a millenia to create an astral pathway between our worlds. As such, on… Read more »

“Life is a mortgage,” I remember her saying with resignation and a tinge of bitterness. She added “I pay it off in daily installments.” That was my Scorpio aunt all over, the poet, the witch, the one whose voice rustled while her eyes roared like the ocean at high tide. Imagine my surprise when I came across her on the cover of an erotic magazine, two red candles burning at the sides of her exposed breasts, as if they stood guard, warning “Touch them and you’ll burn.” If an over-excited spectator did not get the candles’ message, they would surely… Read more »

Vanulla wasn’t always my auntie. She was once ‘that’ girl. The dental assistant at La Canal clinic in Paddington. I’m not sure what is was about her that brought men to their knees ? Ok, .. I did 🙂 but I was way too young and far beneath her total hotness to ask her out. She was probably 30 ? I was 18. I began to obsess. I’m an Aries with Venus in Taurus, Asc in Gem.. (When I astrothemed those aspects only Pepe Le Pew came up but I’m nothing like him ok !) I played it cool, I’d… Read more »

this is aunt ruth, the one whose looks most belie our jewish heritage.
she had a most unlikely marriage to a greasy hells angel with a heart of gold.
she had a son, but her dalliances with her own sex as a result of soft porn movies she made for extra cash caused her proud husband so much embarassment he simply made off with the child, leaving her heartbroken.
i never could get her to open up abt her astrological knowledge…but she would always read my tarot.

Tante Winnie, next door ceramicist, grower of potent herbs (including the hideous weed fennel) and earth mother extrordinaire. Topless and tanned. Raven haired and stunning. Toured Australia before it was a thing. Driving in a combie with two siamese cats and a buff DJ. Visiting remote indigenous communities making friends and art, before it was a thing. Collected sea shells along the WA coast.

Aunty Dee was born in Newcastle. Her full name was Delores. A Saggitarius, I’ve heard she was relatively normal till late adolescence where she not only joined a bikie gang but became involved with its rather notorious leader. She developed a keen interest in the Occult, and when Spider ended up in court on drugs charges, rumour had it that she had either cast a spell to help win the case or slept with the prosecution. Or both. “Sex can be a spell” she told my mother with a wink over irish coffee. I guess you might call her a… Read more »

The Moon and distant Neptune were aligned and Magic felt very real suddenly to Evie, my mothers youngest sister. The Irish blood was obvious in both but Evie was special, with powers she didn’t understand and a deep knowing that remained unquestioned. There was always talk in the family, other cousins with a touch of the fey they called it. A pink gold glow lit the ocean, the Morning Star low over the horizon the Sun yet to pierce the soft morning. The air was sweet with honeyed bush flowers. Mixed with oils on her skin even the air around… Read more »

Rather than write a story, this reminded me so strongly of a song from my childhood which I think tells a better story than I can think of. My then step father would sing this song, and play it on the guitar. He was an alternative, artist type whose house was filled with his surreal paintings, the contents of which defy description in mixed company and a short paragraph.

I had been having the dreams for almost a year when things began to shift gears. It was Fall and we were helping to move Grandma out of our childhood home into something smaller, something more manageable for an 90 year old widow who was still quite capable of living independently, but retired her housekeeping skills quite some time ago in the Tudor house my family had lived in. It had belonged to our grandfather on our Dad’s side. After long debate we decided that, rather than sell it, we’d take up the project of turning it into an Inn.… Read more »

Her slave name is Lynn, but she goes by Esmeralda now. If she was an early 20’s mega-babe in the 70’s, she’d probably be born in the late 50’s or early 60’s. I’m going to say she has a Scorpio ASC, with a Scorpio Neptune and Moon conjunct it – both planets in the 12th house. She’s my straight laced mother’s twin sister. They’re both Virgo Suns. Esmeralda went to all girls Catholic schools and eventually went to Bryn Mawr College. In spite of being surrounded by the fairer sex her whole life, she has a magnetic pull when it… Read more »

She’s not actually my aunt, but my great aunt: Auntie Lisa. She was accused of witchcraft (which in all likelihood she indeed practiced) and was burned at the stake at the tender age of 23. She was brutalized by men who ravaged her body (she was gorgeous) and hated for her good looks and gentle nature by envious females. She was a Cancer Sun with Libra Rising, Venus in Cancer and Moon and Mars in Scorpio. She was born gentle but people seeking thrills at her expense pushed her to seek protection from humanity itself through supernatural means. Though she… Read more »

Thanks for sharing, what a tragic story.

It reminded me of a film starring Monica Bellucci, “Malèna”. It’s been years since I saw it but like your great aunt Lisa, her beauty made men in the village lust after her and incurred extreme jealousy from the womenfolk. Don’t recall the ending but it was tragic, IIRC at one she was even stoned.

Penny was born to immigrant parents in the suburbs of New York City in the mid 50’s. She had perfect hair, perfect skin, and all the boys adored her. But they bored her. She was a restless spirit with just a touch of sadness behind her big expressive eyes. She always felt like she was missing something in life. Raised in a staunchly religious household, with puritanical old-world values, in an era of radical feminism, she was torn between the two messages with which she was constantly being bombarded. “Be a nice girl, get a husband, settle down, raise a… Read more »

Auntie Titula’s “New Direction”, after Neptune’s curtain dropped & having been turned down for the role of Darrin’s temptress Boudicca in “Bewitched” (although she did appear in Season 6 Episode 24, The Generation Zap), was to fully embrace her truest nature & talents. As a Moon-Pluto Aquarian with Venus-Uranus in 12th H Capricorn, she nailed it, too. She was not devoured, body nor soul, by her chosen industry. Quite the contrary, her pockets were lined generously by her many devotees, all the while she was cleansing & fortifying her self-awareness, & stoically enrapturing the patriarchs, one wiccan trick, at a… Read more »
