When Your Hair Is Psychic

When Your Hair Is Psychic

A la Hair By Pluto and Renegade Bare Nails Uranus Chic, a dimension of my prep for Uranus in Taurus is growing my hair out. Dark (?) roots and all.  It’s an Aquarius Rising thing, Uranus being their ruler. So obviously there are some scary facts about hair dye chemicals over-contributing to the toxic load of petrochemical crap we smear on ourselves.  However, there is more. What if Hair is Psychic? And colouring it or even cutting it blocks this incredible psychic source material?

It is believed that the tips of your hair are like antennae that gather energy from the Universe in order to stimulate higher levels of consciousness and creativity.

Hair is a natural extension of the nervous system and is said to transmit important information to the brain. It is also believed to balance the entire electromagnetic field of your body, which in turn can help you to increase your life force, vitality and intuition.

The Healing Powers Of Hair

Hair Are Your Aerials

Keratin, the article goes onto say, can operate much like crystals or gemstones, conducting vibe and picking up signals.  Genghis Kahn (the conqueror) thought having your hair cut into a fringe would obscure the vision of your third eye and forbade it for everyone except slaves and so forth. Who knew he was so New Age?

Then, obviously on a roll with this, i found the truly magnificent think piece: The Spiritual Nature of Hair.  Take Out: Get an (organic and sustainable) wooden wide toothed comb for your hair as that will help your entire aura and connection to life source. Hair is magic.  It conducts Prana. Hair is Psychic. This, you understand, is taking my Uranus in Taurus “Dark Roots” resolution to a whole new level. The “avoid chemicals” operation has morphed into a matrix of reconnecting my hair – the Dark Roots – with Cosmos.

This sounds facetious but it’s actually not. Who has NOT felt the roots of their hair prickle at an incursion? So thoughts please…does anyone else want to grow their hair out and go no-tox with me for Uranus in Taurus? I had a brief bash at this in early 2016 but flipped and went shrieking back to the hairdresser for a vat of PPD and Resorcinol or whatever it is. This time I am not backing off. And, who else thinks Hair is Psychic?  What does this say about extensions? If you’re wearing someone else’s hair woven into your own, do you pick up on messages not meant for you?

“Hairs are your aerials. They pick up signals from the cosmos, and transmit them directly into the brain.”

I’m with you Mystic, Au naturale bare nails and all. Just had a fab hair cut by a dear friend that got rid of the last balayage with no plans to trim it for at least a year. Gray baby hairs at my temples. My hair feels fuller, sexy and electric for sure.

You should read this, about Anthony Morocco, a proclaimed “hair shaman.” BTW, I love their products. Completely natural, not just added essential oils, but so natural that you could potentially eat the products. Nothing made in a lab AT ALL. Also, check out their lunar hair cutting chart. Amazing.

I was born with a full head of dark red/auburn hair (Taurus rising), but the tips were blonde. Mom said the nurses called me the baby with the frosted tips. My grandmother and I both developed a white streak in the front of our head in our early 30’s. Think Rouge from X-Men. She had Mars conjunct Pluto in Cancer, both conjunct my Cancer moon. Her Taurus moon conjunct my ascendant. I love it when family astro lines up like that. It’s like looking at a piece of akashic record on paper. I didn’t mind to much when my red/auburn… Read more »

I’ve never dyed my hair- never really understood the fascination with trying out different colours. My aversion to toxic anything sealed the deal on that too becauese I use the simplest most natural beauty products- many hand-made. I understand wanting to cover over greys and white hairs though! And now that I’m finally growing some of my own I feel in such a bind! From a radical feminist perspective, I have no desire to uphold the idea that I should cover up my greys because they’re not ‘attractive’. But from a vain, socially indoctrinated POV, I don’t want some stray… Read more »

Oh correction! I sort of dyed my hair once! I was experimenting with drinking oxygenated water to see it’d help with my allegies and decided to pour some on my head for a bit of excema. It lightened my hair beautifully, took care of the excema, and gave me the most amazing alertness. Incredible experience.

Have a look at ‘cassia obovata for grey hair’ on Google. If mixed in specific way, it turns greys into golden blonde, without affecting rest of (darker) hair. xx

Wow – obviously this is resonating with lots of people! I am totally thinking about my hair now more than usual, as I am loosing so so much of it post-giving birth to my daughter. I know that it’s normal but there is something disturbing about loosing it so quickly and in large quantities. I started growing my shoulder length hair out when I got pregnant and it quickly doubled in length. My hair had never been so luscious and thick. Now, 8 months after giving birth my split ends and horrible, my hair is everywhere but on my head,… Read more »

I’m 15 months post partum and can completely relate!

Thankfully it has settled down and my hair seems back to normal now, although lots of fluffy shorter bits at the front

Hey I’m a hairdresser and my main focus is creating proper feng shui for my clients thru sculpting and color placement. FWIW I truly believe the post partum shed is as much a spiritual happening as it is physical. You’re literally shedding the rest of your pregnant self and the hair that grows back (it almost always does) is your new autonomous mother self. I know how alarming it can be but if you lean into it your hair will also signal to you how to best move forward in postpartum health. Congrats both of you on your bebes!!

it just occurred to me that I really love the idea of being a new mother with a shaved head. ok yes to avoid all the hormonal flux hair presto-change-o, but also, how fcking hardcore would that be? so awesome. One has enough to think about with newborns (I assume) without the whole stupid “not pretty enough” schtick. Not to mention actual facetime with mirror to at least create a ponytail. Not that any of this is what you’re saying, but it’s a preoccupation in this jerkface postbirth world afaict.

The last time I had a haircut was late 2016. I had an intensive reading in Februay 2017 regarding strengthening my intuition and activating my gifts, and one of the things that appeared in the reading was to not cut my hair. Fast forward to now, I’ve been more attuned to these gifts and everything else around me!

But I’ve gotten to a point where I want a trim, or perhaps have bangs!

I find too many women style their hair to hide their face. It blocks their glow. It’s like a veil. A woman showing her full face is a powerful expression of who she is. A very positive one. More of it I say.

11 years ago, before my first real relational encounter with peeps of the muslim orthodoxy, i loathed the veil and all i thought it stood for. Seven years ago, i had to grapple with my personal connections to the clients and their limitations with how they were being posited to face different clientele. I learned by LISTENING and OBSERVING not just looking, that the women who veiled desired to be free of being judged as being women, powerful and beautifully shiny or not, if it meant some kind of social traction for their tie and energy, mostly given over to… Read more »

I’m not talking about ‘a veil’ as such. That is not someone hiding. More being exclusive with who sees. Im talking about the way hair is used in the West to sort of attract by hiding bits ? Does that make sense ? Like, see my look but not me.

milleunanotte

How do you know it is DESIGNED to attract? Why can a woman or girl not be exclusive with who sees? In the West we don’t easily have the option of a veil, which was my point. I felt like one for a while but i’m brown and easily mistaken for a vilified and misunderstood group, when i’m already misunderstood (and maybe vilified but it’s never made explicit even when it feels clear). I felt like nooone ever sees “me” just my look, which is never the equation to myself, my ACTUAL heritage or identity, that anyone expects. And in… Read more »

Hair decisions, as with most decisions, are not rooted in the desire to attract. It’s not something ‘in relation to’ onlookers’ ovservation or opinion, but simething driven from within.

I’m curious what type of hair style are you talking about?

Now I definitely get the Aries-oriented position you’re taking – i.e. “Fuq Off, This Is How I Do, So Deal With It World” etc, but ‘being seen’ / being looked at has been a certain kind of problem for women for a very long time. The psychic energy of others’ attention is actually often a big fucking deal for us. Could you ask yourself why it’s a problem for you that we choose to show or not show our entire face to the world, or more specifically, to you? Although it may generate mystery for an onlooker perhaps it’s not… Read more »

I can definitely relate to wanting to shield from ‘The Gaze’ especially my younger self. I still hold a grudge for my 14 year old self against someone who projected and transgressed and tried to take advantage

but later i also realised that cultivating my appearance/hair could be my shield too. Definitely “see my look but not see me.”

Me too!! As with many other things that I feel intuitively along with food changes… letting my hair grow longer… I also read about it, and how it stores and channels info.. that is why we cam cut it when we want to “let go” symbolically and literally. It is like “feeling” the right answer for each one of us.. The knowledge is there and the more sensitive I become the more I remember

I can’t believe you have written this blog post! I have definitely wanted to grow my hair out from short style to long in very very recent times, and I got close to hitting the awkward phase but I baulked at how messy it was and had to get it cut off again! I am not ready to stop dying my hair, but I am definitely ready to grow it out again. Synchronicity! I definitely agree that there is something magical about hair.

My darling mum ( Saggo extraordinaire ) and hairdresser always advised me to cut my hair on the new moon for growth.

Definitely. Re: dying hair…applying natural henna seems to have the opposite effect of commercial/chemical dyes. Here’s what herbalist Rosemary Gladstar says about it: “I noticed early on that whenever I used henna on people, their energy changed, brightened, they seemed refreshed and renewed. It was different from going to the beauty salon and having their hair colored. People seem to feel better.” “A wise old man told me that henna aligned with the polarities of the earth. I mentioned this in a class to a group of people I had just anointed with their first henna. One of the participants… Read more »

Would like to add that checking sources and ingredients when it comes procuring henna is super important…some companies market henna hair dye that has nasty chemicals added, so you gotta work with the good/real stuff from a reputable source.

Also, always be sure to report henna use to your hairdresser…and be careful when applying any other chemicals to hair after henna use. Sometimes it results in actual liquidation of hair!

I just hennaed my hair for the first time ever after getting the download that I needed to do it. I didn’t know the first thing about it, but I definitely feel like my hair requested it. I love it and feel way more myself and in time since doing it. Seems like I made the right decision, thanks!

Over time i have been prickling to this incredibly strong undercurrent of aggression and built up tension from my latest hairdresser, and last weekend i reached a very weird crisis point after my visit. I have loved the cuts. I like that she corrects gently my first foray into colour last year. BUT she borders on rough manner, sometimes to the point of moving my chair around with sudden force or moving my head just that bit too strongly – not a nice touch at all, then by the end of the session compensates with smiles or a weirdly contrasting… Read more »

Yikes..that is disturbing. I had to suddenly walk away from a hairdresser that I was with for 7 yrs. It was upsetting for my moon in Leo but it had to be done. She was not nearly as dark or qi vampy as this person you described. And she gave me some amazing and flattering haircuts. She was cancer ascendant so for a while I felt pretty nurtured by that, but then she got kind of judgy and intrusive, and had this gossipy vibe in general too (lower gemini stuff?).

Wow, mille and rachellion, sounds like some real passive-aggressive behavior from your stylists! I always feel in a bit vulnerable position when someone is doing my hair, so it’s a ripe situation to get Qi vamped if the stylist has ‘issues’.. In the past, I’ve had stylists be outright unkind to me, like say overtly rude or disrespectful things to me, taking out their frustrations on me, when I’ve not done or said anything to warrant that type of treatment. I’ve noticed a pattern where they try to blame you for their mistakes, and can’t seem to take responsibility for… Read more »

yes it is a very vulnerable position…sometimes especially when they’re shampooing. I feel so exposed with my neck bowed out like that! I hope you find the right stylist for you, flowerchild! I think for me it helped that I looked for a salon that uses natural products…seems to attract more emotionally healthier people as well. Though of course there are still passive aggressives and qi vamps in those kinds of places too! But, at my current salon I’ve watched other stylists and hair washers interact with their clients and it all seems very positive and caring.

oh Flowerchild that is so true about the vulnerability of being in the chair, and as i think of different pass-agg treatment you’ve dealt with in the past, i just bristle thinking how much you deserve true kindness and care when having a beauty treatment. Try not to panic. I think that’s in your hair from the past care turned to crap from the stylist. And you’ll have to trust to go again to someone. How’s this for an idea? We can do our scouting by booking in just for a treatment first. See what sort of vibe the salon… Read more »

Aw, thanks, mille! We all deserve kindness and care in these circumstances. It’s like I keep thinking, what if I treated my patients like that?! It would just be cruel and also considered abuse. Though, with that said, I’ve also been treated in questionable manner by some psychotherapists. I think I’m able to cut through b.s. and state the truth of a situation that makes some people feel threatened though I’m not at all trying to threaten, just presenting fairly undeniable facts in a (mostly) calm and straightforward way. And I stick to my guns, too, not dissuade-able. That seems… Read more »

So on point, flowerchild! I also thought to myself, What if i treated my own clients and colleagues like that (more so after reading your and Rachellion’s responses) and evaluated quickly my past and present dealings with clients to check what might be “leaking out” if i’ve had a bad time of it. But the stylists concerned for all of us didn’t do that, for people who are already busy and already take care of others in their own jobs and have come to the stylists at their workplace as clients to be cared for!

milleunanotte

omg she dissed YOU through her own cut! I’m so glad you found a more caring experience. It’s interesting you felt the undercurrent vibe increasing over time, just as I have. I guess in the end, negative soul stuff just can’t hide itself, and comes out to feed (ick).

Thank you so much for the support and understanding! Put in writing here, you can see it clearly. But it was small vibes that built up over time…until the last appt.

I think it is so helpful to write it out and get others’ input to help get clear. It seems like that stylist put some sort of power trip on you or some intimidation, even though somewhat subtle and built up over time, which is the exact type of dynamic that can make one second guess themselves. It’s like being gaslighted. Same thing happened in my situation, it was over time and I kept going back, second guessing myself. Even after this last time, which should have made things crystal clear to me, I was second guessing myself, until this… Read more »

Yes, i wrote to Mystic and then wrote back to say ignore it, as i felt it was superficial or just emo-angsting to cover for other issues. Not to mention i know Mystic gets so much correspondence.

With some yogic spiritual practices, yogis shave their heads on the darkest time of the moon (14th day after Full Moon) because on the following 2 days there is an upsurge of energy in the human system which they want to accelerate to open up the 2 chakras above the head… hence shaving hair off to free the scalp. However when the spiritual levels are raised to such an extent that they literally burst out from the top of their heads, they don’t shave their hair & they let it grow, twist it up and put it on the crown… Read more »

Trust you mean well davidl, but really, women need to do what they want with their hair. The opinions of other people are lovely but irrelevant.

I have my personal preferences for the way men wear their hair, but first priority is that the man in question must be happy with himself, and if that, hypothetically, turns out to be a turquoise mohawk, who am I to spoil his fun or dictate his image.

Because there was a definitive LINE between the healthy growth coming out of my scalp and the “rough, coarse” ends of my hair growing out The new growth is only up to my ears I didn’t get it all sheared off BUT—That’s kind of growth would have only happened over the last 10 months or so… when my Saturn return ended. Funny I never noticed while washing my hair? Burn… Read more »

Oh, I wish I had the courage to embrace the greys. I freak at the sight of them, I know I shouldn’t be in conflict with myself like this. Is there a way to transition well?

Pegasus

YES, foils or streaks very very fine depending on where the silver is would tell you the amount.
Then use a blue shampoo and/or conditioner so they sparkle.
So you are making more of them but controlled as to how many and where. Draw a diagram of your head, just out in eyes and mouth, then draw where you silver is coming through and accentuate it.
Pink/rose and ultra violets an be used on the lightened streaks even.
Pinterest and look for ‘white hair’ styles and fashions, you will see how fabulous it looks.

My homeopathic earth-mother god daughter has done the ‘No Poo’ thing for the last 3 years.
Every time i see her once beautiful long shiny hair i just want to wash it!
(With chemical free shampoo of course).

SheRat

Really? Even in cosmo school the product-peddling instructors would tell us not to wash hair every day.

I’m not strictly no-poo but I have whittled my usage down to once a week. The point of my dry shampoo experiment is to see how much longer I can stretch that out.

One thing in this latest bout of “no-poo” experimentation that I will keep is the twice-daily brushing of the hair 100 times.

I feel the same about my friend. She’s been doing it for about 6 years and it just… looks… terrible.

I can say with some certainty, though, that she does not brush her hair regularly! So maybe that’s it.

I had a boyfriend as a teen who went no-poo and had exquisite, gleaming black locks.

The musical ‘Hair’ was at the beginning of the ‘new (old) age’ wasn’t it?

I think, why not? Especially if you look at animals and how responsive their fur is to what’s going on (hackles up, etc…) A lot of dogs get really depressed or out of sorts when their fur is cut off (I guess other animals too). In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the hair is an extension of our Kidneys, which are our primary life force/dna/pre-natal qi, source of fertility. Also, water element (most psychic in astrology?). On a psycho-emotional level, the Kidneys are also the source of our Will/Willpower, the negative emotion is fear… So historical act of cutting off someones hair… Read more »

Also reminds me of the Nazis forcibly shearing off the beautiful hair of Jews as they became imprisoned and doomed-such a violent act of disempowerment.
Many countries did the same thing after the Second World War to women who had affairs with Nazi soldiers or collaborated with them, as a means of marking them for their crimes.

Oh my gosh, I’m 50 years old and it’s been a long time since my mother relinquished all responsibility over this entity I live under that you could refer to as “my hair”. So over the many decades I’ve experimented with practically every drying and styling technique known to man or beast and sincerely whatever you thought you knew about hair does not apply here. It’s a law unto itself, I tells ya! But thanks for your concern.

My hair similar and no way can i dry brush, and the comb even hurts as it gets stuck in curls. I use something called a Wet Brush Pro with very bendy bristles. First time i’ve brushed my hair in my life! Only good when wet. Yes, i feel what you mean about the hair as an entity you live under.

Have ALWAYS thought this about hair. Years ago when I was forever dyeing my hair, I shaved it off as I didn’t want to grow out my natural brilliant red from black dye-so got the clippers and shore it off. Holy heck I felt so natural and clear! So much information and cosmic signalling was clear to me that I’d been missing out on through cosmetic hair application. Also know my psychic powers are off the charts whenever I’ve had really long hair. My hair’s been it’s regular colour for a good while now, but the length absolutely makes a… Read more »

If so, I was, once again, about a decade off time. Last night I began an experiment for DIY dry shampoo. Using my recently-arrived bentonite clay along with baking soda and Shikakia powder (to cancel out the powdery look from the other two), I ground up some rosemary leaves and essential oil. It is sitting with itself in a jar, to be applied used tomorrow morning as a… Read more »

I read the attached article about hair, and somehow, makes even more sense of the phenomenon of cutting ones hair when going through a trauma, as though getting rid of it allows someone to feel less. I cut my own hair ten months ago as a traumatic response, have gotten a small trim since, and find that as my hair grows, my own sense about myself has come back. This was a fascinating idea, and rings totally true. Already feeling Uranus into Taurus and I’m excited for it!

That’s so interesting about your sense of self coming back.

A past boyfriend begged me to grow my hair which was always kept short. I refused. After we broke up, and he kept randomly intruding upon me and i had to keep slicing him away, I decided to grow my hair.

Love how Americans call fringes BANGS always gives me a giggle.
Finding the right person to do that for your hair, considering shape, care and personality is critical as they can make or break a look.
Did a fringe a few years back instead of botox for the forehead lines that started to appear, covered them and the best choice, much cheaper too.

my theory with haircuts is go up to someone with the haircut you love, & ask them who does their hair. If they look suspicious or are wierd about sharing this information (which is pointless and selfish imho, it’s a hairdresser who is likely to appreciate the business + recommendation) then just tell them you’re from out of town or something

Pegasus

Darling PI take about 3 pix of similar style you want and show to stylist, a good one will be able to give you what you want and advise you or not if your hair will cooperate. Always go talk to the person who is going to cut your hair BEFORE it’s cut if you don’t have a regular hair therapist :-). Really good hair needs every 4-6 months reshape in the form of ends off usually. You owe it to yourself, eat Vogel bread, eggs and avocado only for a week to save.

THIS IS AWESOME. And totally true. Pegasus, I think you’ll agree, as hairdressers, we know we’ve done a good job when our client gives that certain little head shake after a service and can’t stop touching her hair.

A good rule of thumb is that if you’re not swinging your head around and feeling like touching your hair and feeling how it’s lying after a cut/color/whatever, don’t go back to that person!

This makes so much sense to me. I’ve had experiences of cutting hair and my awarness and mood inmediately stop (once mid laughter). And I cut my hair shorter and things felt a little off until one day I woke up and thought ‘my hair is where it should be’ now. I think it is also super magical if you cut with intention of release .. but more than a trim doesn’t feel right for me.

I have been thinking about going natural with my hair—all my other self-care products have been natural for close to a decade.

Regarding The Spiritual Nature of Hair article – explain this to a Buddhist monk and s/he will smile and tell you that it is all a matter of belief.

A belief, like religion is simply that. If long hair works for you, then let it be long. But do not imbue a belief with false scientific jargon to make it sound like truth. If it has been scientifically proven like it states, there would be links. Instead, a conspiracy theory is devised to cover over the fact that there are no links.

The Earth is flat too for many people.

I actually just cut off all my hair and called it a “cognitive haircut” where I imagine different sections of my brain in relation to my hair and do away with what is no longer needed. Sort of like erasing memory and beginning anew…it has been a traumatic experience. I instantly regretted it and cried for a whole day after but now I feel more confident and fresher than ever! I promised to grow it out forever after this…hair is dead proteins…it is all so fascinating…I think I got tired of styling it and using it for sexual attraction

If hair is psychic then maybe that’s where the urge to cut your hair often comes at times of change – get rid of the messages of the old and make way for the messages of the new. Like a death/rebirth/phoenixing of your hair.

Yes! There have been a few times in my life that I have compelled cut my long hair short (most recently 4 months ago). It felt like if I didn’t cut at least 5 inches off I would not be able to level up.

I have always believed that hair holds energy and there are times in ones life when old energy must be literally cut away to make way for new energy.

On the flip side I have also grown out my hair after years of short to change my energetic vibe.
