Retrograde Mars In Aquarius Is Provocative

A Retrograde Mars in Aquarius with Mercury in loud Leo is provocative. Despite warning everyone else about it, I got sucked into its vortex!

This batty atmosphere is not just Mercury in Leo & Mars Retrograde going down. We are in the lead-up to an Eclipse involving Mars and Uranus. A Full Moon Eclipse in Aquarius no less. So every ‘drink’ is spiked with a hyper-weird shot of pure Uranus Vibe. The connections and pattern recognition alone is crazy. But the main cautionary prompts in the Horoscopes of late have been about Mercury in Leo & Mars Retrograde. Even so, I nearly got sucked in.

Resist Statement-Gestures and Lecture Rants

How so? To condense recent warnings: This is not the time to be tempted into assertive action by ego or the desire to make a statement-gesture. That’s the Retrograde Mars in Aquarius energy, amped by Mercury in Leo.  So I’ve been in this ridiculously stupid to and fro with Facebook/Instagram for weeks now. Basically, as many of you would know, to reach your full fan base/page likes on there, you have to pay them. So you boost a post and they show your post to more of the people who have liked your page. I have 150,000 ‘likes’ on Facebook so would need to pay about $90,000 for Facebook to let me reach them. Obviously, that’s not going to happen.

The latest spat with them is actually that they won’t let me boost any posts on Instagram/Facebook because they say this site has “adult content”. They won’t say which image or what words constitute such. I just get robotic emails back about how Facebook has high community standards. There was one email that said an image of Marilyn Monroe in a bikini on Instagram featured “excessive skin show.”  And another saying the planet Saturn was likewise “nude.”

So, of course, I have been going nuts with this. I’ve sent emails saying I did not realize that the Taliban had taken over Facebook. And that they need to stop the constant pushes for me to promote posts when they won’t let me. Also that I am sick of seeing Facebook’s virtue signaling bus stop ads all over my city when they’re obstructing my business flow without explanation. But I’m email ranting at an algorithm.

Mars In Aquarius Wants All Available Resources Allocated To Reinventing One’s Own System

And of course, if you dig deeper, the reason this stings is that it feels like judgment and unfair judgment at that.  During the Eclipse Zone, everyday frustrations (and more pleasant occurrences) are hot-wired straight into our psyche. So all of my advice and thoughts in the Horoscopes and Daily Mystic have been about not letting even a righteous sticking up for yourself lead you into inappropriate for the time action. Or mis-channeling of the Mars Vibe.

But yesterday I was once again my latest robot/Facebook person cutting and pasting me Vatican/Taliban style pronouncements. And I found myself asking for the name of their legal representative in my city (Lol) and also thinking about which small business media connections I could talk to about this. As it seems SO unfair to run a business like this. But then I thought NO WAIT – this is actually legit doing the opposite of what I am telling everyone else to do.

Mercury In Leo Is Like “We Should Shawshank Redemption This”

I pulled out, got some perspective and realized that it IS irritating and unfair. but that I can better deploy my Mars Vibe. Like working on my super-genius new project X.  But it illustrates how intense this current dynamic is.

If you visualize the planets as characters, Mercury in Leo stalks around theatrically with a cape and full make-up, saying ‘they’re laughing at you” and “this is a fuqing insult to all your hard work, my god, to your genre.” “We should Shawshank Redemption this.” Meanwhile Mars – thankfully Retrograde and in Aquarius – is admiring the jewelry on the hilt of his sword and watching the show with wry amusement.

This astro doesn’t really want to go all in on fighting a system. Retrograde Mars in Aquarius wants all available resources allocated to reinventing one’s own system. Not railing against that of another. But it’s so hard. Please don’t think that when I make certain suggestions, they’re coming from some sort of sanctimonious position. They’re so not. This IS challenging turf and we are all having to get our Mars on wisely.

How are you going with it?

Must. Restrain. Finger. Of death. On keyboard. Yes! So I used to write for this middling-well-known astrologer. I had to quit because of his creepy, victim-blaming views—I couldn’t have my writing associated with that. But I didn’t speak out much because I was afraid he’d attack me and out me online. I still am, a little bit. He’s got some cultishness in his following. Now he’s in the middle of a metoo, getting worse every day, every day I feel sicker and want to say something. But I’m not goin there. I’m working on a way to support the women… Read more »

I am trying to step back, take a deep breath and just let it pass without doing or saying anything even though everything in me wants me to blow my top and go apeshit lol

Love this post, and yes via the astro . I massively admire the site for being an ad-free, non-page-viewing counting refuge of idiosyncratic posts and independent thinking on the web, and am grateful to be a part of it. Given all this, it could be worth thinking about cutting ties with fb which I think is a pretty evil and definitely scuzzy company.

Yes! Bots don’t have ethics and can’t form relationships, and business is a human enterprise that (many appearances to contrary) requires both to thrive. (I’m a marketer irl and the first thing I say is stop trying to game the system. It’s like computer chess. Boring and worse—IT DOESNT GET RESULTS.) anyway Google has indeed invested some thought into real business and people and needs. FB is uniquely tone-deaf about relationships.

Bank lenders all seem to be stuck in the 1950s where the ‘little women’ staying home and looked after the house and children for their breadwinner husbands. I’ve tried to refinance my mortgage (which is a third of my apartment’s value) and they keep refusing to give me the amount I ALREADY BORROWED and am paying off each month on the income THEY SAY ISN’T ENOUGH to service the loan!!

Hi Mystic, I have natal Mars in Aquarius so I feel like I am experiencing the Mars retro vibe by being even more ponderous of how to transform/reinvent myself. I am literally consumed by it. I am also having some intense insight flashes about life, the world, the universe, and how things work. And where I fit in to all of that. Its quite a cool moment. Regarding Mercury in Leo, I am definitely amping up and enjoying the more theatrical side of communication. And as a former drama teacher, I appreciate an audience more than usual 🙂

No, still can’t see it after logging off & on again – which is weird because it used to be on a few days ago.

Guilty as charged. Lodged a formal complaint with the Australian Tax Office after 18 months of being right royally effed around. Realised immediately that I’d effed up Aqua Mars Retro Protocol. It’s true what they say that nothing brings out the rage in a middle-class white woman quite like being mildly inconvenienced. And yet the time is clearly also not right to channel my sense of injustice into something more noble. Excuse me while I get back to decluttering and plotting my revenge – seems to be the only safe zone right now.

Mystic, you really know Aquas…i absolutely love this: “Aquarius – is admiring the jewellery on the hilt of his sword and watching the show with wry amusement.” I could laugh over Aquarians i know. Mind you, Piscean prismatics demand i carefully examine own Venus in Aqua with its Uranus natal trine and square to transiting Uranus in Taurus (natal Saturn). I really am this energy, in lieu of lz-ing over a lover…i will never find out the birth time. Ye g9ddesses it m8ght be Kataka Rising. Along with what i know: Mars Saturn Scorpio, Taurus Venus Merc Sun. But whatevs,… Read more »

Definitely a time to choose your battles. If you’re not angry, you’re not listening… but beating your head against a brick wall is not effective. I went to a protest yesterday about refugees in prison camps, donated to the refugee help organisation and had a march shouting some highly satisfying slogans (‘lock up Dutton/Turnbull/Shorten, throw away the key, we wont stop until we free the refugees’) but have found myself just blocking idiots and trolls on twitter, because it’s not worth arguing with them… I will fight wisely, never give up, but not get drawn into stupid arguments. I was… Read more »

2 things – bleeding Girly Lego. Is this 1950 with a “you need social media to have “friends”” stereotypical marketing sh!t?. What the fuq? I was ropable and I was buying the boy a gift and pointed out to the poor 9yo what crap this is. No go gettem adventurous strong powerful girls provided for, Cinderella syndrome alert. Grumble grumble.
And on a brighter note I am reading Dr J Dispenza and did two awesome self guided meditation sessions with lovely results. I “accidentally” bought 3 of his meditation mp3s too. Bliss out peeps ♡

I accidentally paid full price for wine during a happy hour, when I thought I was ordering the wine that was on discount. I was SO. MAD. It wasn’t that much in the scheme of things, but it was unnecessary waste. I was wondering which planets have been working on me. I thought it was Uranus in my NN, which could definitely be part of it. But sh*t has been weird lately. My regular mojo seems to be working, but also possibly updating.

Shit i paid extra money for deli items and was ROPABLE! Only stayed home with the purchases bc really it would have cost abput the same fuel money to go back. Hope you got your Happy Hour 🙂 (rather than grimacing hour)

My gorgeous friend said to me this morning “is there something going on with the planets, or what?!” LOL. Uh…yes.

Love your personal anecdotes, Mystic. Thank you. I feel like I am restructuring my everything at the moment. The feelings of dissatisfaction, restriction and frustration are intense.

Wow. Once again, so relevant. I read the post and I stumble onto this: http://www.businessinsider.com/channel-4-finds-facebook-not-deleting-child-abuse-and-racism-2018-7 I don’t go on FB anymore but that’s just fucking vile. I’m glad the images thing is resolved, at least it won’t pester you mentally anymore 🙂 Mercury’s conjuct my Venus and Mars’s not far from my Uranus and on my Neptune rn. I literally am the vision you described. I cannot stop myself from going on rants about how culture has just evolved on a superficial level. Like, I see my Pluto in Sag bros and sis just taking stuff from past decades and… Read more »

Would love to see the meltdown if you sent them each image on this site individually with ‘is it this one?’ attached. You might break the internet.

In a similar but not quite the same issue… the missing daily Mystic email blip of May is not resolved either but it is with the ombudsman and I am getting at least some sort acknowledgment of the glitch in process that leaves a consumer in a perpetual loop, if not actual investigation (let’s not hold our breath shall we). I have set my compass to, well, success naturally…..hehe but basically steady waters that guide me toward my designated port. Calm? Absolutely. Resolution? If I have my way, yes. Adjusted strategy to manage Mars? You betcha and my Mars Cap… Read more »

Wondering if anything astro, tarot, New Age is considered “occult” hence “adult”? Anything 8th H related, by Puritanical middle American filterers at FB….

So basically I feel really wonderful 90% of the time and then absolutely mad the other 10%. And it’s during these periods of madness that I really need to chill out and space out or exercise or something. Today I took a nap which I think was by far the most productive use of my time: I dreamt two seals came into my house and they needed something, I was trying to figure out what it was. And when I woke up I didn’t feel crazy anymore. But if not channeled correctly this 10% of madness can erupt into all… Read more »

Hey Mystic, my first intro to you was from a tweet by Danni Minogue, I tend to take the suggested posts by FB with a grain of salt. I agree that you don’t start a fight now just because something is unfair, we all need to look at how to get what we want without aggro and confrontation just to prove a point. We can do this!

OH MY GOD! And yes, I need all the shorty capitals. This perfectly explains everything lately, I’ve been running around in a tizz grumbling because there aren’t enough protests and campaigns for me to join on the myriad social issues I’m angry about. And I feel hopelessly inadequate when seeing what other people are doing that is slightly aligned to my work. So then I start running around wondering again whether I should invest mucho dineros to get that high flying boring AF MBA preaching shit Imdont believe so I can have the same level of authority as people sitting… Read more »
