Manifestation Burnout is a thing, apparently. I’m not at all surprised. There has been a distinct activation in the hostile Muggle Matrix recently. That – along with Saturn and Pluto’s merger – is formidable. I encountered a person with such merde energy I went home and Alchemy Scrubbed*. When that’s your immediate priority, you know something is up. But first, here is the message that prompted this post.
Manifestation Burnout Is Part Of The Process
Navigating The Hostile Muggle Matrix
I don’t think in terms of manifestation, as such but I understand this. So here is the deal. Burnout – of anything – is a part of the process. Energy evolves. While you’re reading this, a billion particles are zooming around and everything is altering. Pause points and lows are when you often get your best ideas or breakthrough realizations.
But Saturn-Pluto is not fantastic for manifesting or magic, as such. Magician energy is when you’re a momentum player, creating and innovating, tuned into synchronicity and not at all risk-averse. Saturn and Pluto are more like construction energy, especially when they are in Capricorn! There is no short-cut or trick cure. Saturn is the laboriously paid-down debt or the healing that only happens with incremental improvements. Pluto demands that you integrate situations and emotions that you’d prefer to banish to another galaxy. And that you then morph them into strength. Acknowledging them or feeling the emotions around them is not enough.
Neither of these can be outsourced or ‘solved’ by a suddenly appearing benefactor. That person is you. And you’re doing it in the transitional lead-up to a new social and economic cycle in January. So yes, it is maddening and relentless. But it is a good time to be alert to new paradigm clues. And if you’re trying to actualize a self or desire that belongs to an era in decline, you’ll flame out or be unable to summon the energy.
But imagine crossing this turf with no idea of astrology? We know that the Capricorn Convergence has been building since April and is now intensifying, ahead of a climax in January. And that a once every nearly-40-years reset moment is not for flimsy or whimsy. If it’s magic, it’s Old Magic. To retain composure and spiritual connection at a time of immense socio-economic flux IS the spell. And to be self-reliant when a part of you wants to buy back into a failing system or down-weird yourself to get more social validation/sex is the path of a Sage.
Phantom Deficit Syndrome Is Big At The Moment
Phantom Deficit Syndrome is big at the moment and Energy Vampires are turning pro. There are no familiar reference points for comfort and even if you can find or fake one, it’s not necessarily sturdy. Evolution is rickety and works better if you improve your balance/agility, rather than seeking stability.
But at least you can timeline this and also put in the work where Capricorn and Saturn-Pluto ruled parts of your birth chart are.* But the Muggles are turning legit hostile and weird. I met a pterodactyl real estate agent this week; she was the one whose energy was so vile, I canceled an appointment and did an Alchemy Scrub. It was a house viewing, a vaguely haunted villa with a ghost who seemed resentful but probably would not pull anything dramatic.
The ghost sulked while my a bunch of people, my Gemini Daughter and I inspected the house. She has Neptune Rising in Aquarius so she picks up on out-of-time frequencies and scents from other eras. On the right day of her cycle, she’s like a walking Bermuda Triangle. Today, she was just too apprehensive to enter the bathroom. The faded grandeur did not extend to that room – the mucus-green tiles were bizarrely freezing to the touch and it smelled of gin.
Evolution Is Rickety
But the real estate agent was the fuqed up hostile Muggle energy. Her brows stood out, stark black and frozen in a sea of filler. She could not show emotion but her heaving thorax suggested something. I asked a bog-standard simple question and she listened avidly, like a cross-examiner in a courtroom, waiting for the witness to slip up. And then she shrieked “relevance?” It was for show, a gratuitous power play. But the waves of weird enmity coming off her were palpable. Then an attractive male suit with a pulse entered the scene and she skittered across the haunted living room to serenity signal.
People like her are useful in a way – like immunization, they activate your awareness and you have to power up your aura to deal with them. They’re often archetypal, creatures whose core essence or mode of operating has been a nemesis for years. And, they’re always there but particularly psycho-active until January. They don’t know about Saturn or Pluto but they sense something is up and they’re spooked. If it is any comfort, your energy probably scrambles them as much as theirs does yours.
The Manifestation Burnout is more like a flickering down of the flames in response to the environment. Thoughts?
*The Alchemy Scrub is easy – get Celtic Sea Salt and some oil – anything relatively natural – and put in a drop of Rosemary essential oil or actual fresh rosemary. Have a warm shower, step out and do a top to toe scrub with your Salt mix. Don’t omit the soles of your feet. Get back in the shower and rinse with water as cold as you can stand. It works SO well!
*The triple whammy gold standard for this Saturn-Pluto scenario: An Astral DNA + Transit Report and my Saturn-Pluto Mp3. Focus your energies on the part of your chart where you have 15 to 25 Capricorn and the (Pluto-ruled) Scorpio sector. The Transit report does it for you in that it shows the Saturn and Pluto sphere of influence.
