Hey there Mystic,
My question is Am I Chaos? I’m a long time subscriber, but as a typical Scorpio, I lurk on the forums rather than participate. Your site has been essential in my journey back to my magical witchy self after the end of a tumultuous relationship with a nihilist Virgo who believed in nothing and contributed even less. I have found the Tarot/Oracle essential in resetting my compass or giving me little warnings along the way.
My question is about Jupiter and how much I am supposed to believe what is happening to me is actually for the best or have I wasted this transit? I’m starting to wonder if perhaps I am just chaos personified?
In 2018 I have been through the breakup of a 3.5-year relationship (with nihilist Virgo) and lost a job I had for two years. In the first two days of a casual job I had emergency surgery and had to take weeks off to recover. My car was vandalized five times whereby I would frequently miss work or have to rely on other people to transport me at the last minute. My biological father passed away suddenly. I have had multiple housemates move in and out. I have developed a connection with Mr. Taurus and Mr. Aquarius who both had significant mental health episodes after we became involved and recently I have had a disc injury in my back that has left me barely able to walk, again meaning I can’t work and therefore pay bills.
So here I am, again stuck in bed wondering when I will be able to work again and where the hell did Jupiter go? I am Scorpio Sun, Mercury and Pluto, Libra Rising, Venus and Mars. I’m trying to stop my Taurus Moon from comfort eating because I will NOT have Jupiter increasing my waistline.
I don’t aim to be chaotic. But I feel like every other week I’m making some excuse like ‘sorry I can’t walk’, ‘sorry I’m dealing with a family death’, ‘sorry my car is being towed’, ‘sorry I can’t pay the gas bill because I couldn’t work because I was in hospital’… Have I wasted this Jupiter transit? Or is this my version of luck? (that last question wasn’t sarcastic, as a Scorpio I firmly believe that the things that burn us, can transform us).
Chaotic Scorpio who wishes she wasn’t
Dear Chaotic Scorpio,
Wow. Okay, well I would say that some comfort eating is the least of your worries at the moment. My god, it’s a miracle you can even be so erudite and sane-vibing, after all this. Okay, so Jupiter amplifies. Often, you feel it as ‘luck,’ and it will certainly look that way from the outside, but broadly, the Galaxy King is an amplifier. And it is perfectly likely that in fact, your Scorpio resilience has been amped this year because it’s had to be.
So you have not wasted the Jupiter transit. Don’t even think like that. There are often phases of life when s**t seems to go wrong on a daily basis, and your first thought upon waking is ‘oh fuq’ or ‘now what?’. My thoughts are that (1) your Feng Shui could be super-off where you are living, and you are sleeping in some crap energy, so obviously it’s hard when you are bed-ridden, but please listen to House Witching and see if you can get a friend in to help you with it?
And (2) I betcha that Pluto is squaring your Libra Rising. Pluto transits specialize in this sort of Life Storm. So if Uncle Pluto is the culprit, you’re in luck. All you need to do is change everything. First, House-Witch. Second never mind Mr. Anyone until the storm is over. Thirdly; notice how this is altering your values. And who’s there for you now? Or not? And that if you’re reaching out for Mr. Whoever to assuage the loss of the Virgo Nihilist that it does not work?
Without wanting to diminish the stress of your 2018, I think that it is a Pluto Catharsis. The storm will pass. The chaos abates. And you will be a clearer, stronger person for it. You are not chaos – you are Evolution, part of which includes a chaotic phase.
What does everyone else think?
