It is now 14 years that I discovered your horoscopes when travelling Australia, being a 21-year old backpacker at that time. Since then I read your blog regularly and have been a subscriber for quite a while.
It is hard to summarize my thoughts and feelings, but let’s put it this way: it feels like you are a companion in my life, although we never met personally.
The Mercurial key ring arrived abut ten days ago and it seems to have worked instantly. While it was still on its way to my doorstep (but according to the tracking already in Germany) one of my dearest friends (we know each other for over 20 years now) sent a message saying she’ll visit and invited me for a concert. The day the key ring arrived at my mailbox I received the final chunk of a film funding, that we desperately needed to get the project wrapped. (It was also Jupiter into Scorpio – which I have natally). The first day the key ring was by my side, two friends simultaneously messaged me. One of them living in Belgrade, both of them I haven’t seen or heard of in ages.
Carrying it with me I realize I feel less uncomfortable talking to strangers. I know that might sound weird, but I had a hell of a year. Pluto Square ASC and Saturn Square sun. Brought out family secrets (we’re handling them well and it showed me how wonderful my parents are – life goals.). But also, the mentioned project I was working on involved a horrible state-of-the-art Qi-vampire. A director-dictator, basically, who has mastered the art of narcissism and manipulation to an extend he could probably destroy people completely. He almost destroyed me, and that is a tough job. So, I was in a sort of survival mode and totally lost my trust in others.
Mercury by my side (and after all I’m a Virgo Sun & Venus, so quite mutable), suddenly shifted my energy and I started to watch myself smile and talk again to people I don’t know but who came to sit at the same table in a restaurant or walk the same path in the woods.
Mystic, I want to thank you for creating this wonderful piece of magic. I am looking forward to hold the Wealth Wallet in my hands- which I could order only after the key ring arrived, so I apologize for the two times packing and mailing.
I would love to share more on my Journey through the chasms of a super destructive narcissist’s psyche in order to help others with Qi vampires. But that is a book. Maybe this: Do never lose faith in yourself, when you know you’re a good person (= not stealing from or hurting others, not abusing others – but instead trying to do the right, social, kind thing, which does occasionally involve mistakes, but a good person has a good intention). Anyone who tries to take away your love and dedication to the planet, people, actions aren’t worth to be bothered with. Do not stick around, no matter what. When you realize for the 20th or so time that someone is trying to destroy you and blame you for it: RUN!
In previous posts I called myself nebulous Virgo (Sun-Neptune Square). Doesn’t seem to fit anymore.
I work out regularly, have healthy smoothies for breakfast, a silver candle on a silk patch at my favourite place of my home. Have my substance abuse issues monitored and am sober for at least 4 days a week (compared to none in the last years). Journal next to bed, Sage and Mugwort always at hand for smudging.
Mercury rules my Sun- my Libra Mercury is conjunct DC, Saturn & Pluto, I guess that is a Stellium?
Mars, ruler of my Aries ASC is in Scorpio – could this make me a Plutonic Virgo?
I certainly feel like one.
PS: thought a lot about the 6th house recently (my Moon, Venus & Sun are in the 6th) came across this: Rituals versus Routines, the 6th as a house of alchemy & transformation. What do you think?
Virgo, not so nebulous anymore.
PPS: I thought about taking a photo with the mercurial key ring and my funky dog, but decided to send you an autumn image I took in my garden in the woods a little north of the city I live in.
Dear Not So Nebulous Virgo,
I love this…AND yes the key-ring does seem to have that sort of effect. Also, Mercury is the ruler of the 6th House btw. And okay, there IS a post or two on the Astro School about the 6th house but i love this description.
Your description of the Qi Vampire director or whatever they were is SO apt. I think that you know you are dealing with a person of that ilk – as opposed to a normal person having a stressful time of it or a short-fused person who is essentially still good – when you realize the vast amount of energy they put into ensuring that you are wearing all the blame. Shaking off that aura of shame is the spiritual work of recovery from any sort of abuse. You can cognitively know something was not your fault, that the other person was in the wrong and violating your boundaries/betraying the social contract but still there is that little demon lodged in your energy field.
If you have not done the Jessica Snow Pluto meditation from the other day, please do it. Whenever i neglect this aspect of my life – the dream-work, meditations like Pluto, energy field clearing, house witching – i save time but i become depleted. And then, when you do it, you feel your power and clarity flooding back in, like cosmic pure vibe that you can suddenly access again, no blocks. And you don’t need a million hour retreat in the Himalayas or a super fancy series of treatments. Not only can you D.I.Y. this stuff, it is more powerful that way. I am totally doing an Audio Book on House Witching in 2018, i have decided. All this is giving me concepts.
Happy Autumn wandering in the woods with your funky dog and may Mercury bring you ever more fantastic synchronicity!
