So who has Lockdown Craziness already? Raise your hand if yes. Everyone is on duty pandemic fighting, rebelling against ‘all the panic’ by ignoring the rules or socially distancing/in lockdown.
So Mars in Virgo here, I started socially isolating in high school, as a precaution. Seriously, more like from late Feb.
And now it’s on. I get the logic of the thing but how crazy-making is it? You start with tai-chi heart openers before activated beetroot seed bread and microgreens but quickly progress to an Elvis Presley existential diet.
I live with a Gemini whose strategy for all this is to watch disaster movies. It’s infuriating to come into a room because the television is too loud and not know if it is the news or a D-List disaster epic. But most Mutables – Gemini, Saggo, Pisces, Virgo – are avidly googling. They cope by finding out s***t, fast.
While the usual routine would rule out psycho-googling, there are no limits. If you want someone to cross-reference a variety of apparently unrelated subjects and plot them on a graph or generate a theory enough to be a new book pitch, ask a Mutable.
But it’s also a bit paranoia inducing. I am not naturally suspicious – I assume stupidity or corruption before anything so organized as a conspiracy. But even I wondered this morning if this was all a collective Mercury Retrograde hallucination. Or an amazing excuse to conceal the inevitable Saturn-Pluto economic reset.
I got over it by obsessively researching the Babylonian version of Ley Lines and whether or not the Oracle of Delphi priestesses had nitrous oxide. Hypochondriac googling is tempting but not recommended.
Fixed Signs I know are zooming in on every Matrix glitch-like story hole they can find and feeling fuqed off that their storyline seems to involve trying get someone to deliver cat litter or snippy letters from real estate agents. This doesn’t happen, even in D-List disaster movies.
They’re taking this experience as fuel for confronting themselves and their choices; video-skyping their shrink, work-from-home drug experiments, manifestos and confessional rants. Newly present, Leos, Aquarians, Scorpios and Taureans are resonating and reaching out. They’re cutting their own hair and listening to psychedelic mood music. Subconsciously, they’re getting ready for Pluto in Aquarius.
The Cardinal Signs in lockdown don’t think in terms of craziness but somone is going to pay for this screw-up. They are across every potential issue, aware that they could probably do a better job from their kitchen, no bra or grease spotted pyjamas be damned.
They want to know why you can go to the hairdresser but not the physiotherapist and if suburbs can secede from a state, legally. What is the entire plan? They’ve scoped out the likely consequences and are already working up their plans for that scene.
What’s your version of Lockdown Craziness?
