Dark Moon Chic Living

Filed in Moons

So here we are in the Dark Moon again.

It is every single month, of course, but some are more profound than others. This is one of the more magical and poignant ones. There are people whirring around out there, unaware of celestial cycles and disdainful of the more subtle dimensions of time. They’re seeking a convenient escape route. Some of them might even be looking to you for this or for a distraction.

But you know that the Dark Moon with involvement from a square between Warrior Mars and Maverick Healer Chiron is not the time for a flurry of activity.  Nor to try and numb out powerful, existential life realisations.

If you have been reading your Horoscopes, you will absolutely know the advantages of being poised during a Dark Moon like this.

There is no shopping junket, trip booked, litre of Lilac Wine or romantic projection that will ease this transition. Nothing except: Meditative consciousness.  The sound of the ocean or rain. Clean sheets. The fame from a candle or fire (Vesta is conjunct Mars). Sweat. Creative focus. Staying grounded and letting the truths flow through you.

Bonus From Saturn in Capricorn: It’s crazy hard to act as ‘immaturely’ as you might want to now that the Time God is in his home constellation.

Thoughts?

Honestly stayed grounded and mature is really a struggle right now

I want to lash out, cry and/or shove my face with sugar

Instead I’m in the bath, attempting to wash this day away (Mars + Chiron = ouch, ouch my heart)

Mmmmm, it’s been a languid week, but new surprising things happening too. I booked myself into a float the morning of the new moon, but came across a soundbath event that i’ll go to the evening before. reiki included with it. Just booked myself a trip to New Orleans for end of next week to stay there for a week with two of my oldest and most loved friends. One being a previous lover that I reconnected with in late January and was able to mutually clear our wounds and confusion over our relationship, both of our immaturities and blindess… Read more »

Dark Moon anxiety. Exposure to allergens making me fall asleep for hours. Concern for my health. As in…”Oh my god, I’m closer to death and I’m dying for sure…someday.” Anxiety. Frustration. Coming in for a Chiron return once it gets to Aries and in the meantime a host of aspects feeling ouchy. Found a journal entry from 2 years ago that echoed almost all the same things plus some Hecate magic (which I found because of your Madonna post & wanting to know where my Hecate was–19 Cancer, 8th house). I was meditating on her–Hecate, not Madonna–back then on a… Read more »

I’m terrified that this new moon is going to be a solid silver sh*tshow. It’s my aunt’s funeral. I feel bad enough about that, but her still-living husband is an abusive asshole, and my job is to get between him and my cousin, who is smart and funny and I love. He uses a wheelchair and is constantly medicated (but that doesn’t stop that bastard from being cruel to him). I’ll be far from home doing tons of driving, which I’m bad at. The new moon is conjoint my natal moon, in the 10th house. Public attention and emotion, just… Read more »

Just be real. Go and do what it is you have to do and brush off all attempts to hook you into the weird undertow of family dynamics. As in, really do not give a fuq about what anyone else tries to derail, guilt trip or drag you under with.

Yeah, sounds tense. Funerals I find can bring out the best in some people. If not maybe some pepper spray ? Taser ? 😉
I saw a great scene in the TV series Transparent where someone behaving badly was sternly asked to “find your dignity man” “do you have any ? Well find it “

hahaha pepper spray sounds like a good idea

All this languidity, for da Moon weather, has made me recall that it must be Pi’s birthday about now.

I did try the lilac wine and Pringles option last night. It worked for a little while, at least to help me get to sleep. I am like the undead at the moment from months of bad sleeping. I do everything right – chamomile tea, magnesium, switching off the screen, earplugs, and still I can’t get to sleep, and then I can’t stay asleep. I got my bed fixed, I bought new pillows. I’m certain it’s making me depressed. I don’t know if it’s the issues making me not sleep, or the lack of sleep making my thinking wonky so… Read more »

Calcium ( marine sources if possible) always works for me.

The article mentions how magnesium supplements can block absorption of calcium leading to disturbed sleep.
Yeah I know, it’s a real balancing act.

This vibe is very present around me today. Vulnerability, poignancy, trepidation. But also gladness at letting myself feel these things.

Our weather is cooperating with this – we’ve got a nice spring rain going on all week. It’s not that cold outside, but I feel cozy, sometimes candles on, and poised and waiting on jobs I’ve applied for, feeling hopeful, productive, but not active or frenetic….going at a slow pace, and awaiting the Pisces new moon, which is also my natal moon sign. New moon will occur in my 9th house. Just received my passport renewal and dreaming about leaving….my country is really freaking me out right now.. :/ Saturn transiting my 6th is exact squaring my natal Saturn in… Read more »

Oh gods do I love the poetry in all this. Mars in Saggitarius’ arrow into Chiron’s wound, stinging it all over again. Except now he is at the end of life at the end of Pisces and he’s giving his up place in the pantheon so he can let go and finally die, trading places with Prometheus who stole fire for the mortals, probably against Vesta’s wishes. Time to let go, alright.

Love this prospect. A bit tough but I love it.
And there I was talking about socks. 😀

lovely thanks Laura – chiron has been on my pisces moon for a year so this is a wonderful metaphor and reflection on MM’s post.

This is wonderful Laura, thank you. Chiron is one degree away from my Pisces sun now, and this gives me pause for reflection. This year I finally committed to investing a tremendous amount of energy into my own authentic self. A triumphant response to seven years of hard slogging through my own thick mud, and carrying other people’s poo. Phew… These last few weeks have felt like a reprieve, and I feel like a woman in my own beautiful skin again. x

I am ’bout to buy socks. It’s not a shopping bender, they are quite expensive but good quality socks.
This does not eliminate any vibe or realization: I’ve past the era of “not knowing what’s going on with me” and trying to numb it out.
When is the Dark Moon on exactly? The last aspect of the Moon in Acqua I think is toward 28 degrees when it’s sextile Mars and Chiron.
So is not going to be a very long Dark Moon I think.
Poignant yes, but not too long.
