Mercury Conjunct The South Node

Mercury Conjunct The South Node Side-Effects May Include (But Not Be Limited To)…

Extreme, Ruthless Objectivity Regarding All Aspects Of Your Existence.

Disdain For The Status-Quo to the extent that you’re not buying it. Or dating it.

Physical Revulsion At Old-Era Paradigm People being in power.

Wanting Radical Authenticity of appearance, zero make-up, dyes or spray tan chemicals.

Actually needing to meditate.

Waking pre-dawn with the intense feeling you have forgotten something important.

What about if you are born with Mercury conjunct South Node?

Well, the technically correct way to refer to this is Mercury opposite the North Node. And, here are my thoughts on it, from the Astral DNA birth chart report.

Mercury Opposition North Node

Consciously or not, these people remember their past lives. They just ‘know’ an awful lot of stuff without being able to recall exactly how they got the information. They have epic, technicolor full trilogy saga dreams that leave them feeling full of poignant emotion upon awakening. They’re their memories of once upon a time. They often don’t realize that their consciousness is different, as in their recall of other times, other dimensions is more potent than that of most other people. They think that their intuitive familiarity with lost cities and long-gone cultures is the norm.  Clarissa Pinkola Estes, the Women Who Run With The Wolves author, has this. She works it wonderfully via her reclamation of old myths and fables for present-day awareness.

As I was walking home today a thought came into my head: What’s my current approach to relationships? Please fuq off already. Ah…

And anybody who thinks they’re above me can talk to empty air, I was out of there yesterday.

Aqua 4th, going bonkers trying to house purge and clean while of course life goes on. Simultaneously listening to evolutionary astrology videos on Uranus/Aqua/Pluto/11th House/squares trying to pick apart my Uranus square sun which is completely in my radar, I don’t have my opp just yet but I feel it coming like my hand is on the earth and the vibration of the distant hoofbeats are headed my way. I have an Aqua mum whose birthday is on Thursday. I’m hoping she drops a few skeletons from the closet. I’m ready. My Scorpio auntie who would tell me things is… Read more »

Is Mercury on the South Node also bring back people (and music, oh the music) from the past? Because the past has been hitting back pretty strongly. It feels as though I try to move forward very fast, and then something slams me taking me off guard.

Scorpio_Rising

yes, to all of above esp.
Disdain For The Status-Quo to the extent that you’re not buying it/not being it/not dating it/not eating it.

Not buying into anything right now. Not taking marching orders from anyone.
Not digging this pressure to conform to an inflexible mode of Feminism and being threatened to toe the line or be doxxed.
nope, not having it.

Aquar ules my 5th and I have my natal Mars there…I’ve been getting dreams and random thoughts zapping at me to let go of the dead social weight. Especially groups of men from my past. Past trauma regarding said groups of men has been a creative hurdle. But I do finally feel ready to really and truly let it go because I can see it for what it really is now. Yesterdays news.

Mystic you must live in my head. This all resonates so much with me. I’m so finished with all the crap in work, in professional codes, in society in power and trying to get me to be something that’s not me. I fully need to be me from here on in. And I’m not prepared to compromise !

Uncanny. Have totally stopped wearing makeup- just feel more attractive without it. Seriously questioning current (potential) new romance…. for purely logical/ pragmatic/ geographical reasons and just aware of how many great people are all around me physically irl so why am I contemplating having a relationship with someone who likes in Ireland? I like him a lot but …there are tango lessons, meet ups with girlfriends and just so much I need to do. Handed in book on Friday so just need to proofread it now and start the on next.

Oh, Invicta! I rented for so long but never once experienced such a home violation. I’m so angry and sorry for you. There were visits without proper notice (notice claimed by unreceived comms etc wtf i’m Mars in Cap so all comms received and filed) and non action for proper functioning of essential items. When i detailed those after a rent rise i got notice (property was no longer for rent, right? Bullshit, according to my later research.) Where i am now (my mortgaged place) would be prime rental property, and i recently heard something totally yukky about a neighbour’s… Read more »

He didn’t sneer too much but insisted I remove ivy that is growing two stories up and wondered how I will be doing it, as it cost him 3 grand to rip off his own house – it was there before I moved in and even has a wall with trellis.

Sorry – also a completely spontaneous visit & much unappreciated request given we fixed the busted taps and retiled it back up, never complained about a litany of disgraceful issues, paid for plumbers ourselves and replaced broken appliances and were never late once on rent… grr!

you’re possibly justified in calling the police to report that. he could have been anyone.

Leo-Scorp GrrrlMM Member

You could call a landlord-tenant lawyer. In some places that could have been an unpermitted entry. Some tenant side lawyers will work for the statutory fees. It may be worth a few calls. That was a crappy way to be treated. You should have a right to notice (and time to hide personal items).

AlouettaMM Member
Alouetta

That’s obscene, you poor thing. I don’t know what country you live in, but in Australia that would be multiple breaches of the tenancy act, all of which are prosecutable. If you have nothing to lose (reprisal in the form of raised rent or eviction) I say go for it. And if you can’t prosecute, maybe there are ways to undermine the sale. But getting out of the rental world entirely also has its appeal. Maybe all three?

Interestingly the Gem salesperson left semi abruptly last week, she to me was the old paradigm who would not have aligned well with the Saturn into Capricornian Vibes….

Feel like it is Go Pro time and if you show your true grit there will be rewards or maybe that’s just me feeling extra earthy and getting ready for the Plutonian rays to start their pro Virgo 3rd decant support system

Yes, all of it. This past week has been super ‘down-the-rabbit-hole’ and not in a good way, very unsettling. Transiting Merc/SN are just past my Sun at 11 Aqua and I also have natal Merc at 29 Aqua. This weekend has been weird. I do feel like I’m shedding old skin in all ways, except I’m having this newfound and resurgent interest in my career. Weird. I was about to walk away. It won’t let me go. I’m in an all-weekend seminar for continuing education in a specific system of acupuncture. I’ve been involved with Traditional Chinese medicine for 30… Read more »

Yep, yep and yep. SO much ruthless objectivity. I’ve had a lot of time on my hands for thinking, thinking, thinking and fuq it’s been brutal. In advertising they used to say, ‘nothing dies harder than a bad idea’ and I reckon I’ve been wrestling a few of those to the ground this week. Could it be that I’ve been fighting my actual life because it doesn’t fit the preconceived picture of what I thought my post-divorce life would look like? Ignoring the actual love and support that is quietly showing up, day after day, and waiting to be noticed.… Read more »

Questioning and doubting does make the faith in the Real stronger. And you’re a Mutable so it’s less a decision than getting into your feeling core. Because once you really feel it, Mutables can go fast to the focus. It’s really ok to take your time, especially with all the variables you want to consider. But taking your time tends to sound like doing sweet FA, so we feel terrible for doing it, while we know we need to. Don’t even worry about those three dresses (my god, Chrys, this does sound like the start of a fable!) They’ll re-appear… Read more »

What Pi said xx Love, love love your poetry and insights Mille. You really have a way of nailing it.

Void moon in my 5th / Merc on SN realisation…what if I am being invited to consider a new way of working creatively – one that includes support and is as big/small a part of my everyday as breathing, and free of drama and self-loathing?

I would never have a way of nailing it without either of you two, Pi and Chrysalis, describing yourselves in a way that i never could describe myself, yet read and understand so very clearly. Though sometimes, i need a while to reflect, and i don’t always comment back. Geez, not to sound like a creeper.

Tarot pull was emperor in 3rd h, which is me right now/ saggo moon – verging on too much candid. Fingers off the keypad. Extreme self honesty which gets results.

Ive stated this before but I think there’s nothing wrong with makeup if it makes you feel powerful or beautiful etc…its a neutral thing. I wear it like one day a week. But Venus is my Nn mentor, not everyone’s

But yes the things
Am finding that any version of ruthlessness is kind of warped out by what I think might be symptoms of anxiety – I can’t buy into hardass vibes even tho has been stock in trade since whenever (personal Aries Cap astro)

The south node is a genuinely weird place. Seems to me. I guess it’s with age too that you just get sick of your own shit and need to re-zap into a parallel universe.

yes but you’re Gemini Rising so you are drawn to the interaction and learn/riff off it. so you may want to consider channelling that into the 3rd house interactions with everyday people just randomly in your day (unless there’s a 5th house/Leo need to get out there and socialise, too – but i’m thinking of the Piscean need to recharge with quality alone time) Or, the 3rd house comms/writing sector (And/Or, i mean). Rather than boring old introspective journalling, you could make daily people-based anecdotal jottings electronically or by hand to record the thoughts in all their tangential and personal… Read more »

Wow thanks mille, I really appreciate this reflection. I’m going to re-read a few times.

My Aries has Chiron conjunct Mercury so the way i feel it is probs much more sensitised than it needs to be for others. Otherwise i’d be happy to think on it and offer an idea. In the meantime, you can take my Unhealed Wounded Communicator and see if anything at all is useful, even in tangent. At the very least, people are smart enough to work out what they need with only the tiniest bit of help, if they seek healing. So at least i don’t have to (Jup in Sag style) pretend to have all the answers 🙂… Read more »

Take Sun inspiration from Gem Raymond Carver, like. (his was Moon conjunct Saturn so a bit of resonance with your Cap Moon.) All your 8th house insights into the Gem world. Mercury is Thoth, and i don’t need to play up that SN aspect. What did the Egyptians do that they did not record, in beautiful transcription. And this site is run by one of them. Seems too lofty?

Yes, yes, yes. Sick of my own shit, escapist not constructive, this is me for the last 6 months or so. Please report back on the effects of your internet curfew. My SN/NN axis is 11th/5th house (with Saturn on the SN). I’m all of a sudden experimenting with both, and to my fascination the SN changes feel at least as fresh and energising.

PiMM Member
Pi

Internet curfew is going badly (it is 1am as I write and I have to work tomorrow) but I accidentally bought a stack of good books on the weekend which is a pleasant ‘carrot’ to lure me away from the screen which is working quite well about half the time. I also had a very emo realisation about some dark personal moments at present which helped to untangle a horrible corner I had painted myself into. so this all helps..
North node in 5th house sounds FUN!! And you’re officially allowed to give Saturn the flick, haha. Enjoy 🙂

milleunanotteMM Member

YES. Any time they choose, and fq it when they choose not, and all that comes in between.

Kataka, the artist, will understand it best as a form of self-expression or art that we can wear, to enhance, to uglify on purpose as an avant-garde art form, or military dress, which of course is not worn on days when in the mud, but might be used to go into battle, as an identifier. (Kataka is Cardinal, right?)

Here’s me, light and punny, as always. Sorrreeeeeee 😀

It’s my Kat Asc n Sun and my Virgo Venus n Mars, et al that doesn’t like it.

My objection to cosmetics is when it is seen as “for female-identifying only”, and when any given wearer feels less-than (presentable, appealling, employable whatever) without it. These are my parameters. That’s it. Outside that, go crazy fellas, wear that violet eyeshadow. you too powderfinger.

Jokerman
Jokerman

I think ppl are appealing, in whatever context, when they eschew bs of any kind. There are just as many men, as there are women, that don’t like makeup.

Ppl who feel compulsed to do things are the ones conforming. If you don’t wanta do it…don’t do it. The converse also applies. Men are suppose to where ties…l don’t. Look how much men conform to the prescribed clothes regimen.

Society has become ‘blanclamonged’.

See below why l can’t stand makep. In my mind a woman with no makeup is far more beautiful.

When l was 16 l went to friends and there was two girls I’d seen around the place. I thought they were nice. This day they were at this guy’s place. They were ‘adorned’ mit too much stuff.

Later my mate said, “l missed out”.
I said “no l didn’t”

Who cares about other people’s brows? Yeh, it’s a shock at first when someone you know does the whole thing but they love it!! It’s still art or artifice, regardless of how far you go, so “au naturel” is a furphy, lady. Sometimes, us au naturel women have to appreciate an art form without sneering at it. And maybe give ourselves a go at it too, if we feel like, without sneering at ourselves for not being on a proper stage or in a proper film. You can crack up, but it’s great to do it at yourself first. We… Read more »

Agreed, milleunanotte. I am actually just getting back into makeup after years of not wearing it. Has to be undetectable of course. I enjoy the primping. Feels like self-love & adornment, rather than putting on a mask. its feeling like a fresh new creative outlet for me (maybe thats my Cancer moon). I rolled by eyes about makeup all that time I wasn’t wearing it but I know that for me, I was just judging myself and denying myself something fun.

My feelings on this matter were heavily formed because my mother was a prostitute. Her and her friends were makeup central. Us kids (6) were biological freeloaders on her body and she struggled with the ‘maternal’ instinct all of her life. That’s why it was easy for her to leave us to the sadistic twisted Aqua monster for the ‘Heinz variety’ abuses we suffered. To me a mother was something l read about in books. So how does a Kat Sun & Asc react to the that? That’s what the shell is for. And having a 2nd Haus Virgo Stellium… Read more »

I’m sorry to hear.
I understand if too much makeup is a put off. It is truly is an art form and most aren’t qualified.
I wear makeup at night but usually natural (foundation, lip-gloss) in the day. I wasn’t born with perfect complexion so I rely on concealer/foundation to look healthy.

Jokerman
Jokerman

I can handle it when someone takes a very minimalist approach to wearing it. My former wife wore very little and is still very youthful looking. Attributable, in part, to her sparing use of the stuff which also greases turning metal things like wheels. Ppl rate her 10 years younger than she looks. And has no Capricorn at all.

Plus my whole approach to things is if it costs you money and time please make sure there is tangible benefits to why you are doing it. And if it is pointless or not very profitable …. don’t do it.
